To help you navigate the cleaning aisle, we rounded up some of our favorite all-in-one cleaning products that give you the most bang for your buck:
Talk about doing double time! An effective all-purpose cleaner is the most useful item in your cleaning arsenal. Take, for example, Bar Keepers Friend. It can be used on most surfaces for everyday cleaning and for tough stains like rust and lime. Use it on porcelain sinks, bathtubs, countertops, copper, and brass, to name a few. You can even use it to shine pots and pans made of stainless steel and copper, such as All-Clad.
Bleach and water
Not only can you count on Clorox Regular Bleach to remove stains and keep your whites bright, but you also can use it to rid your children's toys of nasty germs. To disinfect plastic toys, simple prewash the items, then mix ¾ cup of bleach to one gallon of water. Wash the toys, let them stand for 5 minutes, then rinse and air dry. Voilà, it's (germfree) play time!
At home remedies
Some of the best multitasking cleaning products can be found in your kitchen pantry and medicine cabinet. Not only does this make them inexpensive, but it also means they're chemical free!
