My definition of purge – sell, donate, repurpose or throw away items as you see fit


Declutter 52 things in 52 weeks - Task 13

Cleaning Supplies

 A few years ago I opened up my little laundry cupboard and realised I had far too many cleaning supplies, I had bathroom surface cleaner, general surface cleaner, window cleaner, just about every spray you could think of.  I didn’t need so many, and then was on a mission to find one cleaner that would do the lot. It was from then that I started using my own homemade all-purpose cleaner.   I use this for just about everything.  


Todays task is to:

Purge all the cleaning products that you have not used in over a year, you don’t need them and more than likely won’t be using them anytime soon.

How many items have you been able to purge today?

I would like to see a photo of your purge pile on Instagram, use the hashtag #declutter52

Hi! I’ve thrown out around $60 worth of cleaning supplies and some weren’t even open!!
Also, I was just wondering where do you get your VIVA Shower Wipes from. My friend and i use to use them and now we can’t seem to find them in our Woolies or Coles?

Wow good on you AnnMaree!! I haven’t purchased the wipes in awhile but I purchased a few when they were on sale from Woolworths. I just checked their website, they say they are also available from Coles, IGA, Kmart and Big W.
