Keeping a clean house is something I always strive to do. I like it when my home looks and smells clean. Even with limited resources, I am able to have a house that I am proud for people to visit. Taking care of your home on a budget is entirely possible, especially if you use products like I recently received from CVS’ new Total Home line.
Below are a few of the tips I’ve learned over the years that keep me from spending an arm and a leg on my household duties!
1. Always looks for stains in your laundry. This will prevent the lipstick or ketchup from setting into the fabric, possibly ruining your shirt. Total Home Instant Stain Remover is a perfect tool to be carried in your bag for getting rid of stains as soon as they occur. The sooner you attack food or other items with staining abilities, the better chance you have of saving your clothing.
2. Walls can usually be cleaned rather than repainted. Your home’s walls can begin looking rough after a few years, especially if you have a kiddo like I do. Crayon marks, scuffs from furniture, and stains from spills that weren’t completely wiped away can accumulate. The sight may make you want to run to the local home improvement store and spend lots of money on paint and supplies – but there’s a less expensive way!
Tackle your wall’s blemishes with a Total Home Cleaning Eraser! The rectangular sponge comes with a tough-fighting cleaning agent that will remove grime, stains, and more from walls – and it also works on doors, and floors.
3. Keep your leftovers rather than throwing them out! Last night’s dinner can make a great lunch the following day. You could eat it as is, or use ingredients to create a new dish – chicken works perfect for repurposing. CVS Total Home Food Storage Containers will keep your food fresh and ready for you to eat. They are microwave safe for easy reheating and can be cleaned in the dishwasher.
4. Use heavy duty garbage bags in the kitchen to prevent tears or double bagging. When we first bought our home, I remember trying to skimp on bags by buying the thin ones. They were not durable enough to hold up to our trash – and would tear often. This became a headache, as well as a waste or time and money. Total Home Large Trash Bags are much stronger than brands we have used in the past. I’ve used them for general trash as well as to collect yard sale items, and there have been no rips!
The new line at CVS, Total Home, features 150 products for all areas of home care, from cleaning and cooking to organizing. I’ve been happy to try out the new product line in our home, as it’s obvious the items have undergone rigorous quality testing and were made to work as intended. Find the above items as well as toilet paper, paper towels, aluminum foil, and more at your local CVS!
