So, we know what to clean. The next question is what do we clean them with? My mom kept a clean home. She cleaned just about everything with Clorox® Bleach. She would fill the kitchen sink with hot water and add Clorox® Bleach to it. She would soak the dish sponge, our toys, the pets toys, and the pets food and water bowls. She wiped the doorknobs, the faucets, the counter, and the table top. She mopped the floors, cleaned the toilets and the tub.

I clean my house the same way my mom did. I use Clorox® products too.  I love the convenience of the Clorox ® Disinfecting Wipes. I keep a canister under the kitchen and bathroom sinks. They are perfect for a quick clean up of your door knobs, television remotes and any handles in the house. I use them several times a day on the refrigerator door handle.

The Clorox® Clean-Up Spray is the perfect cleaner for the tub, shower doors and the toilet. We use Sparkle® paper towels with the Clorox® Clean-Up Spray. They are durable and It is a one-two punch that kills germs in their tracks! Those “thirst pockets” are the real deal! At Dollar General you can stock up on your paper products like Angel Soft® bath tissue.

I shop at Dollar General for all of my Clorox® products to disinfect my home. They have what I need at prices that fit into my budget. Spring cleaning does NOT need to be pricey! Dollar General is convenient, the stores are bright and clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. What’s not to love?!
