A recent study found that more than half of Australian households don’t have any clean-ups planned in the future.
The ABC understands many households have never had the chance to clean their own home and it’s hard to imagine anyone having a clean space ready to go at the end of the month.
What’s the deal with house cleaning supplies?
The National Housing and Housing Assistance Scheme (NHHAS) provides free house cleaning for people with housing needs, including those with pets and disabled people.
House cleaning supplies can be bought at stores like Woolworths and Home Depot, and they can also be purchased online through the NSW Rural Housing Authority.
The NSW Rural Health Service also sells cleaning supplies.
But there are other options too.
For example, you could go to a local recycling centre, or ask your local community centre for a local house cleaning kit.
You could also consider using a local cleaning supply specialist.
You’ll be getting a quality, eco-friendly and low-cost cleaning solution for a fraction of the cost of conventional cleaners.
But you’ll need to look for a cleaning solution that’s approved for use in your community.
The NSW Rural Council also has a Clean and Safe Home (CleanHome) programme that offers home cleaning solutions.
It’s not just a house cleaning product, either.
You could also get a scrub brush to clean up your carpets, kitchen tiles and flooring.
You could consider getting a composting toilet to help you compost more food.
How can I avoid being over-burdened?
There are some things you can do to reduce your bills.
You can get your bills paid online.
Or, you can shop around online.
The National Housing Foundation has a wealth of advice on how to shop online for the best prices and service.
The Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Department has a range of home cleaning supplies and accessories.
If you’re looking for a specific product, contact your local NHBAS.
