FLIGHTS AND DEALS: How to do spring cleaning on the cheap

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — It’s starting to look like spring. The sun is shining and the days are longer, but when we open our blinds and windows, that sun often lightens up all that winter dust.

The urge to clean for spring is very real for many of us, and 6 News is here to help you save money while doing it.

So what’s the secret?

It’s the dollar store.

This is where you can find amazing deals on cleaning tools like scrub brushes and sponges, even mops and brooms.

In fact, in the videos sweeping TikTok right now, influencers are raving about their dollar store discoveries using the hashtag #cleantok.

ABC News recently set out to compare prices. What they found are amazing deals on cleaning brushes.
Most were under $1.25 at dollar stores, compared to $3.69, which was the cheapest found at big box stores.

Sponges at dollar stores cost $1.25 for six, compared to $2.69 for a pack of just 3 on regular store shelves.

Despite savings on brushes and cleaning tools, those who shop at dollar stores may not find deals on cleaning solutions.

While dollar stores carry them and the price is low, ABC News found that big box stores actually have better deals overall when it comes to what you pay per ounce.

For the best deals, head to the dollar store to stock up on tools, but you might want to make two stops to grab that cleaner before tackling your spring cleaning.
