Even though I pay for a once a month cleaning service, there is always general housekeeping to deal with on a daily if not weekly basis. How to do this frugally:
-laundry: only wash full loads, only wash whites and towels in warm-everything else in cold. Line dry all but towels who get a 30 minute spin in the dryer before line drying. I hang up clothes year round. Wear bottoms twice if possible, use bath towels twice as well.
-when cleaning, I use dollar store or bought for $1 cleaning products purchased by combining a coupon with a sale. I stock up when I find deals, even if the item isn't immediately needed. This applies to laundry supplies as well. I've been working down my stockpile, once depleated, I am considering a switch to all homemade versions (except laundry supplies, which I get cheap enough)
-I clean using what I call "fancy rags" that I make out of old cotton flannel nighties for dusting and swiffering, old towels for all general cleaning. I do not purchase disposable cleaning wipes
-I choose sweeping/swiffering (have 2 cats) over vacuuming daily.
-preventive maintenance to keep the house clean:
