Keeping a clean home doesn't have to be as arduous or expensive as you may think. With the right supplies, you can work smarter rather than harder to keep your home looking clean and smelling fresh.
Begin by taking an inventory of the supplies that you have on hand, then create a shopping list and pick up what's missing. Most essential cleaning supplies fall into three main categories: picker-uppers, brushes and brooms, and cleaning solutions.
Picker-uppers include paper towels, non-abrasive scrubbing pads, reusable cleaning wipes and sponges. Essential brushes and brooms include a broom and dust pan, toilet brushes (one to keep by each toilet) and a scrub brush. You may also want to consider specialty brushes such as a vent brush, a window blind brush or a ceiling fan brush for particularly difficult jobs. Crucial cleaning solutions include all-purpose spray cleaner, window cleaner, toilet bowl cleaner, bleach, hard-water mineral remover, enzymatic carpet cleaner (if you have carpeting), tile and grout cleaning solution and metal polish. You can save money by buying economy size cleaners and using refillable spray bottles.
With a huge selection of cleaning supplies at Everyday Low Prices, Walmart has you covered. Save money. Live better.
