#4. Use Less Detergent for your Laundry
Use less washing powder or liquid per load. Nowadays washing machines are more efficient and often half the amount of powder or liquid will be plenty.
#5. Look for Alternatives to Expensive Cleaning Products
Branded cleaning products can be expensive, and need to be replaced every few weeks. Look for alternatives with either natural or own-brand products.
“I use Norwex microfiber Enviro Cloths with tap water and have replaced my all-purpose cleaners. The initial cost is higher, but they are guaranteed for two years and work out considerably cheaper than buying cleaning products every few weeks.” – Sandra
“Instead of using bleach to take stains from your clothes, use Milton sterilizing fluid. It’s a fraction of the price and brings white items up like new.” – Alana
“I have saved tons of money by making my own laundry soap!” – Jen

#6. Use Vinegar on Your Windows
Instead of hiring a window cleaner or buying expensive products, just add white vinegar to water in a spray bottle and you’ll find it does just the trick.
A microfibre cloth is great for leaving a streak-free finish, but tradition actually would have been to use scrunched up newspaper for the same effect.
