You can spend a ton of money cleaning your home if you’re not careful. 

The benefits of having a clean home are easy to recognize, but saving money while doing so can be a bit tricky if you don’t know what you’re doing. 

Between maid services, and over-priced cleaning products, it’s not hard to break the bank while trying to keep a neat home. 

With that in mind, if you know what you’re doing, you can save on cleaners and still see great results. 

In this article, we’ll discuss a few different ways to save money at home while still keeping things spotless.

Now then, let’s get started!

Buy in Bulk

Buying your cleaning products in bulk can be a great way to save money if done correctly. If you have space, and you go frequently enough to repay yourself for the membership, you can save a ton of cash buying from a warehouse club.

Keep in mind you can use your warehouse club membership to buy other things you need around the house. Using such a store for more than just cleaning supplies makes it much quicker and easier to reach the point where your membership essentially pays for itself.

Buy Store Brands

If buying in bulk doesn’t work for you, purchasing store brands can also help cut down on the cost of cleaning products. Oftentimes, the store brand products work just as well as the comparable name brand products at a fraction of the cost.

If you don’t have space or are worried about getting enough bang for your buck from the membership costs, purchasing store brand products is a nice alternative to buying in bulk.

Use What You Have

Odds are you already have a ton of products around the house that are cheap and great to clean with. Mixing water with a little bit of vinegar is a great cleaning solution that works on almost any surface.

Additionally, dish soap has more uses than cleaning pots and pans. It works well as a stain remover, jewelry cleaner, and can even work wonders on your patio furniture, just to name a few. 

Have a cleaning product that’s starting to run low? Add a bit of water to extend its life and save a few extra bucks in the process.
