If you’re looking to cut back on toxins in your home, but you’re nervous about the price tags of some of the green cleaning products you’ll need in order to do it, you’re in the right spot.
Here’s a quick list of 7 top green cleaning products and our best tips to save money on them.
1. Buy Better Life All-Purpose Cleaner at Bed Bath & Beyond (instead of Amazon).
When you buy Better Life All-Purpose Cleaner at Bed Bath and Beyond, you can use your 20%-off coupon on top of the already-lower-than-Amazon price.

2. Watch for Simple Green coupons you can use at Walmart in March.
We’ve seen high-value Simple Green manufacturer coupons for $1.50/1 during March, just in time for spring cleaning.
When you find a manufacturer coupon, you can use it anywhere that takes coupons, but Walmart tends to have the lowest everyday price (in general), making it possible to get Simple Green household cleaner for under $0.50 per bottle!
Stock up if you find it anywhere below $1.00 per bottle, though, because savings can be rare.
3. Load up on Seventh Generation laundry detergent and cleaners at Target.
Target periodically offers gift card deals on household cleaning supplies. Look for a promotion like “Free $15 Target Gift Card with house essentials purchase of $50 or more.”
Plus, when this gift card deal is current, you can often find Cartwheel offers to stack with it. We’ve seen $1.50/1 Seventh Generation laundry detergent and $1.00/1 Seventh Generation all-purpose cleaner.
Pay with a Target REDcard and add another 5% savings on top of it all.
4. Buy Dr. Bronner’s Pure Castile Soap from Amazon.
Although Macy’s beats Amazon on the price of Dr. Bronner’s Pure Castile Soap, the $9.95 for shipping pushes it over the edge. Save money by finding it on Amazon (and getting that free Prime shipping).

5. Buy Mrs. Meyer’s cleaning products at Walgreens using Register Rewards.
Mrs. Meyer’s brand cleaning products have been known to receive markdowns of up to 50% in early spring at Walgreens.
To give yourself an even bigger discount (or in the event the products aren’t on sale), take advantage of Walgreens Balance Rewards promotions like “Buy 2 Colgate Toothpaste, Receive $5.00 Register Reward.”
Be sure to download the KCL app to find a Register Reward deal that you can stack with coupons on an item you’re already planning to buy.
6. Order Bon Ami powder in bulk from Amazon (instead of Walmart).
You can save up to $0.03/oz. on Bon Ami powder cleanser when you buy it in bulk on Amazon.
Since Bon Ami coupons are extremely rare, focus instead on price-per-ounce comparisons between a few stores. And keep your eyes peeled for any sales!

7. Go old fashioned and combine vinegar and baking soda.
It’s no secret that if you’re looking for green cleaning products, you’d save the most money by mixing your own.
In fact, you’d get a lot of mileage out of a half gallon of white vinegar from Walmart ($1.92) and a box of Arm and Hammer baking soda ($2.48).
If you hate the smell, try throwing in a dash of citrus-scented essential oil.
