To Save Money And Time!

These thrifty cleaning tips and products won't just save you money, they will save you space too. You will no longer have to stock hundreds of different cleaning products.

To be very blunt - Bleach and Ammonia are both toxic cleansers that should be avoided if possible.

So what are your options?

  • Peroxide - can be used for disinfecting and cleaning almost any surface including countertops and tabletops.
