Ok I am at an advantage here.OH has given me about a lifetime's worth of cleaning stuff, and I already have a lot of my own in which'll prob last till I die:D:D:D
Does anyone else want to see how long they can go before buying any more cleaning stuff?I'm not inc washing powder in this, and also use bicarb white vinegar etc:D:D:D:j:j

    Love a challenge, but I've also got quite a stockpile so could be cheating a bit here. But I am up for seeing how long I can make it last.
    Glad washing powders not included.:D

    Hi Candygirl - I'm up for the challenge - I have a cupboard full of the bloomin stuff and I'll include washing powder/liquid and softener in with my challenge - I hate buying cleaning stuff and I'm particularly weak when it comes to the antibacterial wipes so that will be my personal challenge - not to buy them but to use up the spray stuff that I have in abundance [bleach is all I really need]

    Love a challenge I do

    Welcome Helen and Quintwins:hello:
    I'm betting it'll be at least Oct before I need to buy anything, except washing powder n w up liquid.Have tried making my own washing powder but it never seems to work for me:o:o
    I do water my w up liquid down though, as it's too harsh on my hands otherwise:D:D

    i have a dishwasher and i'd say i have 6 months of tablets and around a years worth of laundry liquid (and stain remover) so really no need for me to buy them, i don't use alot of washing liquid really but i do use dettol (or cheapo version if none are off offer) but these last ages and i have 2 bottles, i only have 1 bottle of bleach tho

    You can definitely count me in on this as I have loads of cleaning stuff which I need to use up, will probably need to buy some washing powder in the next couple of weeks, but I won't buy any until I actually run out of what I have.
