This week let’s Take Stock of our Cleaning Supplies.

In the event of a natural or man-made disaster, many of these items will not be available. In the event of a personal financial shortfall, you won’t want to spend money on laundry detergent or toilet bowl cleaner with funds that should go to groceries or bills.

Every household has developed a list of cleaners they prefer. Some use name brand cleaners, some use eco-friendly cleaners, and some will even make their own.

Here’s a list of basic cleaning supplies from the internet. Use it to review what you have on hand. If you don’t use it, skip it. Determine how much of each you need to have available for six months or a year.

Basic Household Cleaning Supplies

Multi-purpose cleaner

Glass cleaner

Dishwashing liquid

Dishwasher detergent

Laundry detergent

Fabric softener sheets or liquid

Bathroom cleaner

Toilet cleaner

Floor cleaner

White vinegar

Furniture polish



Disinfectant sprays or wipes

Watch for sales on the items that you need to stock up. On sale and sitting on your shelf is so much better than having to buy them at full price at financially inopportune times.
