How much do you spend on cleaning products? The answer is probably a lot.

Cleaning products are expensive. Even when you don’t want to buy them either for full price or discounted you need to buy them because you need to clean your house, car, desk, etc. My wife and I don’t like to buy cleaning products for the simple fact that they are expensive. Having said that, we still buy them because we need them.

Over the years, we have found ways to buy less and less of cleaning products. From word of mouth to research, we found several cleaning hacks that can do the dirty work for a lot less in our pocket.

Do you know you can use vinegar more than just as a condiment? When I first heard that, I was like “you’ve got to be kidding, right?”.

If you are looking for ways to reduce your cleaning product purchases or just want to find out what these cleaning hacks are, you are on the right spot.

One thing is for sure, that is, you will change your mind about cleaning your house with these cleaning tips and tricks.

These tips and tricks aren’t difficult to create and follow. Actually, most of the materials you need are present in your home. You just don’t know that they could be used for other purposes. You’ll thank me later on after you read and execute these cleaning hacks.

It’s ok to be skeptical with these DIY cleaning hacks. I completely understand that. I had been in your position before I tried these cleaning hacks, too.
