My tip for today is really simple, but for me it was an "Aha!" moment.
I had gotten into the habit of using an antibacterial spray and paper towels every time I wiped down the kitchen counters. At over three dollars per (small) bottle, plus paper towels, this was costing a decent amount of money.
A few months ago, I picked up a plastic spray bottle at Walmart and filled it with water and a squirt of dish soap. Give it a little shake, and you're good to go! I still get the convenience of a spray cleaner, but much cheaper. I also stopped using paper towels and started using rags instead.
Now, the only time I use antibacterial cleaner is when I've been working with raw meat.
