When it comes to cleaning your home, you don’t need to go broke maintaining the appearance. In fact, there are several ways you can actually save money. At Fuhriman Insurance Agency, we all conduct our own spring cleaning back at the house, so we know how important it is to find the best ways to clean a home at the lowest price possible. Whether you live in Boise, ID or somewhere else, you can use these tips just about anywhere.
Make Your Own Cleaner
Why purchase cleaning supplies when, chances are, you have what you need already. Vinegar, baking soda and lemon juice really is all you need for most cases. Pick up a spray bottle for easy application, but outside of this, you’re good to go. Have stains in the bathtub? Sprinkle baking soda around the tub then spray it with the vinegar. It will foam up, soften up the dirt and you can easily wash it away. You can also combine 2/3 part vinegar and 1/3 part lemon juice to bring in that nice lemon scent.
Ditch the Paper Towel
Paper towel consumption can quickly increase your cleaning bill. When you look at how much paper towel you go through while cleaning your home up and down, it really adds up. Instead, go with a reusable item. Microfiber cloths are great for washing surfaces around the house and a squeegee with a rubber tip is perfect for washing windows. Whatever you need, you can clean your home rather effectively without spending an arm and a leg on disposable paper.
Wash Everything At Once
Don’t to a bunch of smaller loads in the washing machine. It is easy to just go room by room, but instead of washing just the curtains, add in the shower curtain and washer-safe rugs as well. It will reduce your energy consumption and save you on utility bills.
