Nowadays, the market is flooded with various more or less useful cleaning supplies but what they have in common is the fact that the more powerful the detergent is said to be, the more expensive it is. Every manufacturer wants to make their product the most desirable one without compromising the prices and unfortunately, there is nothing you can do about it. If you are content with the quality of a particular cleaning product, you can either spend a considerable amount of money or get the less expensive equivalent and regret purchasing it later. However, you can still have your house sparkling clean without investing a fortune in cleaning supplies.
- Pay attention to the so-called “junk mail” you receive on regular basis. All these free newspapers and leaflets you find every other day in the letterbox, often contain coupons for discounts at the local supermarkets. Look through the pages, cut the coupons you need, and use them the next time you are doing some shopping. Bear in mind that most of them have an expiration date. They are usually valid for less than a month so hurry up and get top-quality cleaning detergents at an irresistible price.
- Buy in bulk. Although it may seem too much to spend, for example, your weekly wage on cleaning supplies, if you do the math, you will find out that it is really affordable. The cleaning supplies can stay in your closet for years, which means that buying them in larger quantities is a long–term investment that saves both – time and money.
- Watch out for sales and discounts. The big chains have great sales at least once a month and during that time you can find various goods that have a reduced price and you can buy them almost for free. As far as the cleaning supplies are concerned you have several more options for getting them at a lower price. Most stores have their own brand of cleaning products and these are, as a general rule, the cheapest on the shelf. Try them out because there is not much difference in the quality between the least expensive and the second cheapest one.
Sometimes, the stores want to get rid of damaged products so they are sold at a modest price because, say it, the cap is unsealed or broken.
Even if your favorite detergent is not on sale but you notice an item that has a defect, go to the cashier and kindly ask whether you will be given a discount if you buy it.
- If you are fed up with waiting for discounts and gathering coupons, consider making your own cleaning detergents. As a matter of fact, that’s the best way for saving money but homemade cleaning supplies have one more benefit – they do not contain as many toxic substances as the ones, sold at the supermarket, HireHouseCleaner reminds. Depending on the surface you want to clean, you can make various mixtures. Rest assured that most of the ingredients are already in the kitchen – baking soda, white vinegar, lemon, orange peels, salt – these are the main components of every homemade cleaning detergent. They can make any surface shiny and fresh smelling. Lemon, orange, and lavender are believed to be the best neutralizers of unpleasant smells. The home-prepared cleaning supplies save you money and protect you from inhaling the dangerous particles the commercial cleaning products contain.
