When It Comes to Cleaning, Less Can Be More

As we’ve all spent more time indoors these past few weeks, we are also probably doing a bit more cleaning inside our homes. Here’s a pro tip for getting better results while doing less!

1.) Don’t Overbuy – That means you don’t need different solutions for every cleaning task. Experts agree that simply buying one or two of the all-purpose cleaners like Ajax, Formula 409 or Mr. Clean and using them in multiple situations is cheaper and makes more sense.

2.) Let the Cleaner Do the Work – Isn’t of apply the solution and immediately starting to scrub, give the cleaner 30 seconds to a minute to do the hard work for you. (You know, like letting the dishes soak overnight.) You should find that way cleans better and you use much less!
