Unfortunately, there’s no such thing as a cleaning supply fairy that replaces your supplies when they have surpassed their shelf life and are no longer effective.
So, I’ll go ahead and give you the next best thing. I’ve compiled a list of the most common cleaning supplies and made a chart for the shelf life of each item:
• It’s really important to remember not to keep items that have bad or unusual smells, have huge clumps or chunks when you pour or spray them, or have changed in color since your last use of them.
• Lastly, although modern cleaning agents do save you time and seem like they are the most effective, it’s really worth while to check out some green cleaning alternatives that are better for the environment and for the health and safety of your family.
Do you have any thoughts on how long to keep your cleaning supplies? Do you have any different data? I would love to read what you think in the comments section below.
