5 Top Costco Items to Jump Start Your Spring Cleaning

I’ve been hunkering down in my home during these winter months with little motivation to spruce up my surroundings. But I know that once the temperature changes, my motivation to organize my garage and clean my home will return.

To help me get ready for spring cleaning, without derailing my personal finances, I’ve tracked down some good deals on cleaning supplies on Costco’s website. Here are five deal items that will help you jumpstart your cleaning this year.

1. All-natural surface cleaner

I have a confession: I don’t always trust natural cleaning products. Some work well, and others just smell nice but do little else. But the three-pack of Puracy surface cleaner on Costco’s website has 4.8 stars from 29 reviews, so I’m willing to try it.

Costco says the plant-based Puracy cleaner is 99.96% natural, child and pet safe, and hypoallergenic. It can also be used on various surfaces, including countertops, floors, marble, granite, stainless steel, furniture, and electronics. You can even use it to clean toys.

You can grab the three-pack of Puracy cleaner — a total of 75 ounces — for $24.99. That’s a nearly $14 savings versus buying the same item at Walmart.

2. Window cleaner

Last year, our condo HOA hired someone to paint the buildings in our community. The painters, unfortunately, didn’t cover the windows before they began, leaving paint speckles and smeared paint on many of our windows.

I thought I’d have to buy a special cleaner to remove the paint, but I tried Windex first because I had it lying around, and it worked perfectly.

So I was excited to see Costco selling a 32-ounce Windex bottle with a 169-ounce refill for just $14.99 on its website, which is $13.89 cheaper than on Walmart’s website. I’ll be ready if those painters come back!

3. Heavy-duty sponges

A core tool for any good home cleaning is a good sponge. Costco’s site sells a 24-pack of Scotch-Brite heavy-duty sponges for just $18.49. That’s $6.49 cheaper than what Walmart’s selling them for.

Costco says the sponges are great for everything from kitchen messes to outdoor cleaning, and they’re reusable — they can be sanitized by washing in the dishwasher. You may want to check to see if you can have them delivered. In my local area, Costco will deliver the sponges in two days through Instacart if I add them to an order of $75 or more.

4. Cleaning wipes

I’ve got two kids, so we always have disinfecting wipes on hand. After a cold makes its way through our family, it’s nice to know we can quickly go through the house and disinfect all the surfaces.

With the cold and flu season still going strong, now is a good time to pick up some disinfecting wipes, even if you haven’t started your spring cleaning.

Costco sells a four-pack of Lysol disinfecting wipes for just $13.99 through its website right now, which is far cheaper than Walmart’s online price of $29.70.

5. Dusters

My wife has recently handed over the chore of dusting to our oldest son. I don’t know if the quality of the dusting has gone up, per se, but the fact that we have to do it less often is certainly convenient.

We use Swiffer dusters because they’re easy to switch out when they get dirty, and they fit nicely between the blinds on our windows. Costco is one of the best places to buy these because it sells replacements in large quantities.

The Swiffer heavy-duty dusting kit, which comes with one handle and 17 refills, sells for just $19.99 on Costco’s website, slightly cheaper than Walmart’s price of $21.17.

How to save even more money at Costco

My family has the basic Gold Star Costco membership that costs just $60 annually. This membership works well for us because we don’t use Costco as our primary grocery store.

But Costco’s Executive membership may be a good idea if you buy in bulk for most of your grocery shopping. Executive members pay $120 annually, but you’ll earn 2% cash back when shopping at Costco, and also receive discounts on many of Costco’s services.

And if you use a credit card for most of your Costco purchases, you may want to consider the Costco Anywhere Visa® Card by Citi. You’ll earn 1% back on all eligible purchases, 2% on Costco and Costco.com purchases, and up to 4% on some expenses, like gas. There’s also no annual fee.

Here’s to hoping warmer weather is coming soon. But not too soon; I’m not quite ready to reorganize the garage.

Alert: highest cash back card we’ve seen now has 0% intro APR until 2025

This credit card is not just good – it’s so exceptional that our experts use it personally. This card features a 0% intro APR for 15 months, a cash back rate of up to 5%, and all somehow for no annual fee!
