  • 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,

    How To Get Everything You Need Under £10

    Now, it's all well and good knowing how to store products safely and where; but what about the price? At Poundstretcher making things affordable is key. So, here is a list of all the essential cleaning supplies to best clean your home with!

    Daz Washing Powder 6 Washes - £1

    Clean n Fresh Bleach 750ml - 36p

    Stardrops All Round Cleaner 750ml - 89p

    Stardrops Anti-Bacterial Cleaner 750ml - 89p

    Whilst this product may not have the wide range and 'all round'-ness of the previous Stardrops product, it's still essential. One word: anti-bacterial. It kills 99.9% of bacteria, including the flu virus, which makes it perfect to use for cleaning food surfaces in the kitchen.

    Mr. Sheen Polish 300ml - 89p

    Whenever you want your home to be polished to shiny perfection, you can always turn to Mr Sheen. This multi-surface polish works on plastic, glass, metal, and wood, trapping that pesky dust once and for all.

    And what can you use when cleaning with all these products? Why, these microfibre cloths! They can be used for dishes, on surfaces, anything! And if you toss them in the wash they can be used multiple times.

    Total: £7.60

    The Clean Conclusion

    There you have it, but a final word, it's always best to keep all these cleaning supplies in their original containers. If you do want to pour them into another bottle, then use new clean ones and make sure to label it clearly and accurately.
