In honor of Works-For-Me-Wednesday, I'll share a brief money-saving tip related to household cleaners.
Cleaners (like Windex, 409, Mr. Clean, etc.) can get pretty expensive, even with sales and coupons. Lately, I have found myself adding water to the bottles to extend the life of my cleaners. I'll use about 1/3 of the bottle, then fill it to the top with water. I'll use another 1/2 or so, then fill it up again with water. In so doing, I can usually more than double the usage of each bottle. And, I have seen absolutely no difference in the cleaning power of regular vs. watered-down cleaners.
I'm also looking into homemade cleaners that are even more cost-effective. I'll let you know how they turn out.
