LAUNDRY & CLEANING

There is nothing quite like giving the house a good spring clean and at Homebase there are hundreds of high quality, low priced cleaning products to make the work a little easier. For external house cleaning why not try out the Homebase window cleaning kit? The price of hiring a window cleaner every month has gone up and with many people struggling to make ends meet at the moment in the UK you could save by cleaning the windows yourself.

The living window cleaning kit costs just under £15 and includes squeegee, mitt, wiper blade and extendable pole - all you need is a little elbow grease and soapy water to make your windows sparkle. If you can spend more, the Karcher hand held Window cleaner is a really good tool that cuts out all the streaks from window cleaning.

Homebase CleaningFor indoor cleaning then there are cheap buckets and mops, carpet cleaners, cleaning solutions and branded wipes from Mr Muscle and Vileda that you cannot find cheaper elsewhere. Fur under £3 you can buy Homebase own branded cleaning cloths that are perfect for every day cleaning use and can be machined washed.

For carpet cleaning have you considered buying a new carpet cleaner from Vax? They are the market leaders and the product pays for itself over the course of a year when compared to hiring an expensive carpet cleaner. A new Vax Rapide for example costs under £250 and is the best tool to clean carpets, upholstery and comes with a huge 4 litre tank capacity. With that kind of storage you could clean most rooms in a 3 bedroom house with one solution.

For daily carpet cleaning then you need a good but affordable hoover. Whether you chose an upright bagless hoover, cylinder hoover or small hand held cleaner will depend on the job in mind and the size of your home. Flats, small apartments and house shares could get away with a Henry hoover while 4 bedroom houses will need a good upright hoover from a good name like Dyson or Panasonic.

You can also buy cheap hoover bags, cleaning solution, detergent, scotchguard, bissell fluid and other attachments for hoovers and steam cleaners.
