Thrifty Thursday with Mr. Clean

Thrifty Thursday Mr Clean

Check out this Thrifty Thursday post! Most of us couponers have cleaning supplies in bulk – I have more Mr. Clean Magic Erasers than I know what do with. I use them to clean pretty much everything, but there are a ton of uses I never even thought of. For those times when you are running low on a cleaning product, don’t run out and pay full price. Open another box of these bad boys and cut them up. You’d be surprised at what you can use them for!
