  • Keep Your Bedroom Clean With Our 6 Tips!

    It's that time once more! Another set of hot tips from our cleaning wizards here at Poundstretcher. This time we're telling you how to tackle your bedroom.

    So, whilst it's a good idea to get into a habit of cleaning your bedroom out at least once a week, it's also good to keep on top of things on a daily basis too.

     

    1. De-clutter, De-clutter, De-clutter

    Sound familiar? It ought to, it's something we make sure to mention every week! It's always best to get rid of all the old junk (receipts, tissues, etc.) from your bedroom space, be they on display or tucked away in your bedside drawers.

    Also, be sure to check under your bed and through your wardrobe for anything you no longer want or need. If it's in good shape, it might be a good time to gather them up and think about donating or selling them?

     

    2. Laundry Round-up

    This applies to both your clean and dirty clothes that may be scattered around your room. Add your dirty ones to your hamper (we know how quickly dirty clothes can pile up on the floor), and fold/hang up any of your clean ones so they're out the way.

     

    3. Dust Across All Your Surfaces

    Everything from the bed headboards, your side table, and the top of your wardrobe should all be dusted and polished with some help from Mr. Sheen!

    Don't get your light fixtures and curtains too! Dust up high and down low.

     

    4. Vacuum And Clean Your Floor

    Get into every possible nook and cranny, making sure to not forget underneath and behind your bed and wardrobe (if possible). Remember to focus on this after you've already dusted so you're not creating more work for yourself.

     

    5. Sort Out The Bed

    If your bed has just been changed recently, then simply make your bed and get it all nice and straightened out. Otherwise, strip everything off your bed and throw all the mattress protectors and sheets right into your laundry hamper. There's nothing better than a nice fresh bed!

     

    6. Keep Organised

    Whether it's shoes, belts, jewellery, bags, ties, what-have-you, then it's a good idea to give them a designated place. Plastic storage is a good way of doing this, or just giving them their own drawer or shelf.

    There you have it; short and sweet. It really is no different than cleaning other rooms in your room, you just have to remember to keep that bed fresh and clean!

    Why not come and check out your nearest Poundstretcher store and grab some bargains up? Don't know where your local one is? That's no problem, just head over to our Store Finder and you'll find out in no time.

    Also, be sure to keep an eye on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram page for more bargains and competitions!

  • 8 Top Tips for a Refreshingly Clean Kitchen!

    It's that time again! We have more fantastic quick cleaning tips for you this week; this time we're focusing on the kitchen, somewhere that ought to be spic and span!

    Whether you use Stardrops, Mr. Muscle, Cif, or just plain ol' vinegar and elbow grease, check out our top tips below and see if they can improve how you think about cleaning your kitchen.

    Or if you have some better solutions, let us know on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!

     

    1. Change Cloths on a Regular Basis

    First things first, the cloths used to wipe your surfaces every night (not to mention the spills you might accidentally make) should be changed at least once or twice a week.

     

    2. Keep Your Microwave Fresh

    You might neglect the inside of your microwave, but it certainly is something that needs to be cleaned on a regular basis. Make sure to give the surfaces (up, down, left, and right) a good scrubbing and use some of our amazing Ozmo Antibacterial Fridge & Microwave Cleaning Spray for only £1.79!

     

    3. Clear Out Your Fridge

    This isn't something you might be doing every day, but it certainly is something that should be kept on top of. Just go through every weekend and make sure you take notice of anything that's nearly out of date, whilst tossing anything out that's no longer any good. (the same can be said of your freezer too).

    After that, take everything out, give the surfaces a good wipe with good old reliable Ozmo, and put everything back in after wiping dry.

     

    4. Mop the Floor

    It's a wet job, and sometimes it can mean your kitchen is off limits for a period of time (unless you want wet feet), but mopping the floor is a job that needs to be done often. Just take a solution of disinfectant in a bucket, get a mop, slap it down on the floor, and get to work!

     

    5. Take Pride in Your Clean Oven

    It's a big job, but Oven Pride is the best product to turn to when you need to get the grime and dirt from your oven when a deep clean is required.

    Just put on the included protective gloves, follow the instructions, and soon you'll have an awe-inspiring oven!

     

    6. Wipe Down the Surfaces

    Your work surfaces need to be done daily (after/before dinner would be a good time). Also, it's worth noting your cabinet doors and interiors should be done every so often too, as grease and dirt can latch onto them without you even knowing.

    Just use some antibacterial kitchen spray for only 90p, spritz it across your surfaces, wipe with a clean damp cloth and presto, the job is done!

     

    7. Descale Your Kettle

    Sometimes limescale wouldn't pose much of an issue, sometimes it will. It all depends on the quality of your water. However, if your kettle (or any products that need a good descaling) is in need of some help, you can be sure that Oust is the best way to go!

     

    8. Sink That Dirt

    Your sink basin has all sorts of food, oil, grime, and bits going through it as you go about washing up and preparing food. It's good to do your sink the same way you clean your surfaces, with a good kitchen spray!

    So, any helpful tips? Maybe you already knew all these or maybe you think you know some better ways to clean the kitchen? Let us know on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

  • Quick Tips On Cleaning Your Living Room

    You spend such a large amount of time in the living room, so naturally, you'll want to keep it nice and clean! Spring cleaning is coming to an end, though the work needed to put in for a fresh home never stops!

    A quick run-around a day (packing things away, a quick vacuum, and polishing the surfaces) is all it takes to keep on top of things. This way, it means you'll have more time for fun on the weekends!

    This week, we have some fantastic tips and amazing products to share with you all about keeping your living room nice and tidy! Break out the music, start that 20-minute timer, and let's get to work!

     

    1. Declutter On A Daily Basis!

    It's always best to start with clearing things away and putting them where they should go. Whether it's just pairing all the coasters together in a pile on the coffee table, putting books/DVDs in their rightful place on the bookshelf, or tidying away toys in plastic storage boxes.

     

    2. Plump Your Pillows Up!

    Fluff, beat, and straighten up your sofa cushions on a regular basis. This helps keep your sofa lasting longer, straightens it up nicely, and makes it more comfortable in the long run!

     

    3. Clean Up High and Down Low!

    It isn't just everything you can reach with ease that needs cleaning. With a duster, you'll be able to clear the dust from those hard-to-reach places up above (ceiling fans, light fixtures, etc.).

    Just remember to start with that early on; there's no point in dusting and polishing the coffee table, only to have dust from the beaded lamp above wiped off and scatter over it.

     

    4. Dust and Polish!

    This doesn't have to take too long. Just grab a microfibre cloth and wipe off all the dust across your surfaces; follow this up with some Mr Sheen spring fresh polish to keep your furniture healthy and smell utterly fresh.

     

    5. Vacuum Your Curtains!

    Gently clean your curtains using your vacuum to suck up any potential dust. Deep cleaning these will only come around every so often, but it's the quick weekly (or daily!) maintaining that takes no time at all!

     

    6. Disinfect Your Remotes!

    This goes for light switches and everything you touch on a daily basis! You may forget about these, but if you think about how often you touch and use remotes and controllers you'll realise you are just transporting dirt and grime around!

    All it takes is a little cleaning solution in warm diluted disinfectant solution. Make sure it's not dripping wet and just carefully and gently wipe around your light switches/controller buttons.

     

    7. Tackle the Carpet Last!

    The last part of your short burst of daily (or bi-daily) cleaning will be to vacuum your carpet. This way any dust or dirt that's come from your surfaces and have settled onto your carpet can be cleaned up for a nice clean finish!

     

    8. Don't Forget the Windows!

    Whilst not really part of a normal 20-30 minute clean, it's worth mentioning here that your windows are important too! There's nothing worse than streaky and/or dirty windows.

    There are two ways you can go about this: mix hot water and white vinegar together in a bucket or use some specific glass cleaner to speed things up a little.

    Rinse a clean cloth in the solution and wipe down your windows. From there just use newspaper to dry and you're done!

    So there we have it; some of our top tips (alongside the cleaning products found in your local store that make cleaning a breeze) for how to have a pleasantly clean living room. Keeping on top of things is the most important part.

  • Fantastic, Quick Tips For A Sparkling Bathroom

    Spring cleaning is just past the half-way point now, though even-so, work around the house is never done! Each week we will be featuring a different area around the home and the best ways to tackle cleaning them!

    Don't forget all your essentials, such as yellow rubber gloves, cleaning cloths, a bucket, mop, and a timer as you go about giving your room a good 30-minute blitz!

    This week we're talking about the bathroom, an area full of bad bacteria and somewhere that should be kept as clean as possible! Here are a few quick tips on how you can make your bathroom shine.

     

    1. Create Some Room

    Clear out everything. Don't simply go around the toiletries, put them all to the side and out the way, and then you can start wiping down your surfaces with some antibacterial bathroom spray! After all, it isn't just your toilet and shower that can be covered in germs, your window sill and other bathroom surfaces are at risk too!

     

    2. A Ship-shape Sink

    Whether it's limescale or regular grime, you need to make sure your sink is completely clean. After all, think of all the gunk that goes in there on a daily basis? Just take some Stardrops bathroom surface cleaner, a clean cloth, and some can-do attitude and wipe everything clean. Also, be sure to have any mirrors that are around your sink to be rubbed clean with a spritz of glass cleaner.

     

    3. Nothing Like A Sparkling Shower

    Sure the shower floor and walls are important, and these can be cleaned using all kinds of bathroom sprays, such as with Cif Ultrafast or even with the fantastic Cif cream. However, don't forget about the glass itself; with some handy glass cleaner (mentioned above), is all you need. Just need to spray it across, rinse with the shower head, and for that perfect finish, use a squeegee.

    Now, as for limescale, you may be getting quite a build-up of it in the nooks and crannies (the shower head, behind/around the tap, etc.). Limelite is just one of the ways to banish it and leave everything sparkly clean.

     

    4.  Make That Toilet Sparkle

    Whilst it's important to bleach the interior of your toilet on a regular basis (using Harpic or Duck), you need to make sure all the exterior surfaces are done too.

    The seat, the rim of the bowl, all the hidden parts behind, everything! They all need a quick spritz with an antibacterial spray, leave for around 10 minutes, and wipe with a clean cloth. Also, don't forget the toilet flusher too!

     

    5. Clear Your Pipes

    Dirt, and especially hair, can easily and quickly clog up your shower or toilet pipes. It also doesn't take long to clear all that away! Just take a bottle of Mr. Muscle drain unclogger, pour half (or the entire bottle if it's REALLY clogged) and allow to work for 15 minutes (30 if a full-on clog), or overnight if need be. Take a kettle of boiling water, pour/flush it down, and repeat if necessary.

    And there you have it; some of our little cleaning tips that can become part of your bathroom routine (whether that's your 30-minute blitz or a full-on clean).

    Also, there's nothing wrong with having a bit of a change-over when it comes to bathroom rugs, mats, and furnishing. We have a whole range of bathroom goodies for you, so why not check them out? How? Using our handy Store Finder of course!

    Gel Power Orb

    You can just smell the power these orbs give out!

    Quick Spray Odour Destroyer

    As the name implies, all it takes is only quick spray (a single touch) to unleash a burst of odour destroying freshness. All that gets left behind is clean, fresh air as the bad smell molecules vanish!

     

    Fresh Vac Carpet Deodouriser

    Tobacco, pets, cooking; these are all causes of undesirable smells (with cooking, don't get us wrong, your cooking might smell great; but do you really want that garlic and onion smell stuck around on your carpet?).

  • Get Set For Spring Cleaning With Our 6 Easy Tips

     

    Where has the time gone? It's almost March and that means spring is getting closer to being in full bloom (could have sworn I saw a bumblebee the other day)! With Easter and Mother's Day on the horizon, it's time to think about (if you haven't already) cracking on with some spring cleaning before it slips away from you!

    With our wide range of products here at Poundstretcher, you'll have everything you need to tackle this task before you. Here are a few quick tips to help make everything easier and our top choice of cleaning products to use.

     

    Tip #1: Before You Begin - Clean Your Utensils

    The last thing you want is to track more dirt and pesky dust bunnies around your home, right? Well, then one of the first things you should consider before sweeping your brooms left, right, and centre is to give the bristles a good cleaning. This goes for any cloths you wish to use too.

    Just simply give them a quick once-over with your vacuum (making sure to give the nozzle a clean afterward too) or wash it with warm, soapy water. Also, make sure you give your sponges a good soak too.

     

    Tip #2: Clean Your Light Fixtures

    You'll be amazed at how dusty your light fixtures can get, and also at how much it can slightly alter the lighting in your home. All it takes is a quick climb up a stepladder, a sponge, and some handy Dettol Anti-bacterial surface cleaner to get the job done.

    Regular up-keep also prevents the build-up in these tough to reach places, meaning you'll have a cleaner home. It's especially useful to bear in mind if someone in the house has dust allergies and/or breathing difficulties.

     

    Tip #3: Wipe Every Surface, Even Vertical Ones

    It isn't just the kitchen counters and other horizontal surfaces you should clean on a regular basis. Build-up can occur on your cupboard doors and drawers too, almost seeming invisible. It's a good idea to give everything a good wipe with some antibacterial surface cleaner to get rid of the germs for good.

     

    Tip #4: Deep Clean Your Fridge

    Same as the windows, make sure you clean the inside and outside of your fridge; you'd be surprised how much grime can gather on your fridge door! Gather up all your refrigerated supplies and give the entire inside a good clean. Pull out all the interior shelves and wash them in warm soapy water, followed by wiping down everything else that cannot be removed (this includes the sides, bottom, and fridge 'ceiling'.).

     

    Tip #5: Clean the Windows Inside & Out

    First off, did you know it's a better idea to clean your windows on a cloudy day? That way you can ensure the water and Mr. Muscle window spray will not dry and create a load of speckles before you're done.

    It can be difficult to clean the outside of your windows if they're not reachable at ground level. However, it's worth making sure they're just as clean as the inside. What's the point of cleaning the windows on the inside, if there are smudges and dirt on the outside? One product that can help you is our Window Cleaning Kit, containing a rubber squeegee, microfibre mop, a replacement window mop pad, ergonomic hand grip, and telescopic pole (that extends to 1.05cm approx.)!

     

    Tip #6: Declutter All The Clutter

    Finally, tackle the biggest part of spring cleaning (getting rid of and/or organising all your clutter) with our range of storage options! This doesn't mean cramming things anywhere, stuffing them into a box, and leaving them under the bed. No, you might as well do a complete clear out of all your unwanted books, movies, and knick-knacks (either selling them on eBay or giving them to a charity shop). The rest of them can then be organised by size/subject/genre and then neatly aligned.

    For your clothes, some over-door hooks can work wonders in freeing up some space, as would placing your random bits and pieces in any of our plastic storage containers. Also, similar to organising your books and movies, it would be worth doing the same for clothes. Having a designated space for each type of clothing (and also arranging them by occasion) would make your daily routine much smoother.

  • Reasons Why a Canvas Wardrobe Is a Must-Have for Students

    Storage is always an issue, whether you're at university or not. We all have so many clothes, shoes, and bits and pieces, that sometimes we just need a little bit of extra space. Though how do you accomplish this at uni, when you may have the tiniest wardrobe ever and yet still want your room to be neat? Well, canvas wardrobes in our storage range are the answer!

    That's right, canvas wardrobes, and we at Poundstretcher have them ready for you to take home so you get your clothes all organised and put away, all for an affordable price.

    Fill In The Gaps With Canvas

    If you have a tiny uni accommodation, then this Single Metal Frame Canvas Wardrobe is just what you're looking for. You can utilise as much of your new room as possible, and it offers a great storage solution whether it's temporary or long-term.

    Our canvas wardrobes are easy to assemble and allows you to hang all your clothes with a little extra space at the bottom for shoes and other accessories. What's more is that you can free up space for everything else you'll be needing, such as a laundry basket and a desk to work on (which will come easily to you once your room is free from clothes hanging around haphazardously).

    A single not big enough for you? Whether you wish to share it with another person or you simply have THAT many clothes, we also have you covered with our Double Canvas Wardrobe.

    Having Both Style AND Substance

    Now, style is a big part of any room, and we have a choice of colours that will help benefit your personal space. Yet whilst you can grab them in black, white or grey, you can also be assured they are perfect for storage. Stylish and functional.

    It's not only canvas wardrobes, but also door hangers that offer this same design. Like this Black Overdoor Organiser; hang everything from your childhood teddy from home, slippers, shoes, and more. All it takes is to hook it over your door to allow you to maximise your space (which believe me, can be limited whilst at university).

    Wherever you go, I can go too!

    Now you might only be living at your uni accommodation for the academic year, so what happens when summer rolls around? Well, fear not, you can easily disassemble your canvas wardrobe, put it into storage, and reassemble it when you move into your next place; easy peasy!

    Whether it's taking it to use back at home, at your uni place, or even when you start to move out to your own place after uni, there's always a need for storage. It's a great investment in staying organised and to keep your clothes clean and fresh.

  • How to Best Store Your Cleaning Supplies

    cleaning suppliesWhether you're just doing some end of summer cleaning or are just moving into new accommodation (such as for university), Poundstretcher has all the cleaning supplies you'll need to have a sparkling and tidy home.

    Whilst there are many amazing bargains here, the main issue comes from where to store everything correctly once it's all back home! Right here and now you can have definitive reassurance just where is best to keep your cleaning essentials.

    Getting That Bathroom Sparkling

    An area synonymous with cleaning supplies and chemicals is the bathroom.  You want somewhere safe to store your bleach and bathroom cleaning sprays. With what goes on in the bathroom you need to be sure it's spotless and hygienic.

    All of these items can be kept in one place, somewhere dry and cool. You don't want to store them anywhere with varying temperature extremes, so somewhere out of the way of direct sunlight/heat is key. Making sure it's dry is ensures there are no spillages or any chemicals merging together.

    Another idea would be that you may wish to keep them in a small cupboard, a high shelf, or a box (either under the stairs or hidden away in another room) for ease of access. Perhaps you could keep them with the rest of your cleaning supplies (such as your polish and kitchen supplies) so they are all in one place?

    Spick & Span In The Kitchen

    Moving on, it might be best to talk about where a large bulk of your cleaning products are most likely stored and used: in the kitchen. The same rules apply here as they do in the bathroom. You need a clean area and a safe place to keep everything.

    It all boils down to the fact that with cooking and prepping of food means that area has to be free from bacteria. Germs are another issue as you handle items such as raw meat.

    What better way to keep everything hygienic and germ-free than with kitchen cleaners and all-purpose cleaners? Be they anti-bacterial kitchen sprays, washing-up liquid, drain unblockers, or oven cleaners, these all are used to keep your kitchen surfaces and appliances spick and span. A tidy home is a happy home, as they say.

    The same can be said about laundry items. Fabric softener, washing powder/tablet, stain remover, or even colour catchers. All of these can be stored with the rest of the under-the-sink supplies. That or keep them close-by to your washing machine, but out of reach.

    Whilst so much happens in this room, the same rules as the above apply. Keeping your cleaning supplies dry and cool is essential (and keeping them safely out the way). An ideal place (if you wish to split cleaning products between rooms) would be under the sink, away from food items and kept somewhere not in constant use. Ideally, you would want a child-lock on the door to prevent children and pets to gain access.

    And All The Cleaning Supplies In-between

    Don't forget about your cleaning tools! With sponges, you must make sure they can fully air dry. Whilst you can store unused sponges underneath the sink, just make sure you don't store damp ones in an enclosed area, for fear of bacteria. The same can be said about cloths used around the home.

    floor-cleaning

    Now, with dust-clearing tools such as brooms, it's always best to store them upside-down to stop any bristles bending. Or you could hang it up on a hook to keep it suspended in the air, this works for sponge-mops and dusters too. Keeping them elevated not only helps make your home look neat and tidy, but also keeps them healthy so they last longer,
