Frugal Cleaning Supplies for an Affordable Spring Cleaning Experience

Spring Cleaning Supply List

The temperatures are rising, flowers are beginning to blossom, and the sun is beginning to brighten up. In addition to a closet refresh, spring cleaning is a common seasonal task that many households take on. Winter’s snow and ice may have left your floors scuffed and your windows dull and streaked, but that doesn’t mean you have to spend an entire day—or paycheck—revitalizing your home. Stock up on frugal cleaning supplies that get the job done at Foodtown.

Affordable Cleaning Products for Every Kind of Home

From heavy-duty supplies to all-natural ingredients to affordable organic cleaning products, Foodtown shoppers have access to low-priced products that suit every home.

Heavy-Duty Cleaning for Family-Friendly Budgets

It goes without saying that some surfaces will require a little extra elbow grease when it comes to cleaning. Add these heavy-duty cleaning products to your shopping list, roll up your sleeves, and you’ll be on your way to a spring-ready home in no time at all:

  • Carpet Stain Remover: From hosting seasonal soirees to trekking in snow and mud, your carpets probably took a beating this winter. This is one cleaning supply where quality matters. To spread your dollar even further, opt for a carpet cleaner that also serves as an upholstery cleaner.
  • Bleach: Cut the cost of expensive surface cleaners by relying on this tried-and-true affordable product. Bleach can be used to de-sanitize almost any non-porous surface, as well as to remove mold and mildew in the bathroom.
  • Dish Detergent: This multi-purpose cleaner is a staple for dishes and utensils, but did you know it can serve as a heavy-duty cleaner for other household items? Scrub items like toys, glass décor, and your toothbrush holder with dish soap for glistening and germ-free results.
