  • Get Your Cleaning Done Quickly & Easily

    Any busy household is inevitably going to need a good old fashioned clean from time to time.

    There are also kitchen cleaners, bathroom cleaners and glass cleaners available from Fabulosa, so be sure to browse through the full range.


    Cheeky Cleaning Hacks

    With such a variety of different surfaces and commodities in the modern home, cleaning everything thoroughly is a very challenging prospect.

    So you might be able to get you work surfaces absolutely spotless, but some other household items might be less than perfect.

    For example, is your iron looking a bit grimy and worse for wear? One tip to get it back to its best is by taking a sheet of aluminium foil, sprinkling some salt over the top, and then ironing it. Provided you don’t bring any steam into the equation, this combination will help remove the grime that can build up on your iron plate.

    There’s a host of other similar hacks you can try with ease. For example, did you know that coffee filters can be an effective way of cleaning computer and television screens? Or that toothbrushes are a great way of getting keyboards spotless?

    There are lots of other great tricks out there. A mix of water and vinegar, applied with a sock over your hand, can help get blinds sparkling.

    A pastry brush is also a great way to get rid of crumbs in a toaster, while stainless steel can be easily cleaned using a microfiber cloth and some rubbing alcohol.


    Find Your Next Great Cleaning Buy

    Our cleaning supplies range is truly impressive, so whether you need washing up materials, floor care or mops and brooms, Poundstretcher can help.

    To take advantage of all these great items and lots more, simply take a trip to your local Poundstretcher store. You can find yours using our Store Finder tool today.

  • 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.
