A few weeks ago we were preparing our house to put on the market to sell, so I did a seriously major deep cleaning of my whole house.

A friend who cleans houses professionally recommended a cleaning product to me that I had never heard of before, and it became the 1 product that saved me hours and dollars when I deep cleaned my whole house.The 1 Product That Saved Me Hours and Dollars When I Deep Cleaned My Whole House|The Holy Mess

Please know this article isn’t a sponsored post by any product company. I’m sharing this with you because I highly recommend this product.

My kids teased me about this for weeks because they rarely saw me without a spray bottle with this stuff in my hand. I used it for absolutely everything I needed to clean.

It’s called Krud Kutter and it’s a cleaning product that can be used for most any cleaning project you have to tackle.

Here is what the Krud Kutter website says:

It’s simple. We believe cleaners should be tough on krud, but gentle on nature. Krud Kutter safely removes the toughest stains and everyday messes that most “all-purpose” cleaners can’t touch – grime, grease, pet stains, and crayons. It even removes dried latex paint and permanent marker.

The company has a number of different cleaning products available, and I’m sure they are all good, but I bought a gallon jug of the most basic cleaner they have and used it for everything. (You can purchase Krud Kutter on Amazon, at Lowes, or Walmart.)

I used Krud Kutter in buckets of warm water for deep scrubbing. I poured in an inch or so of Krud Kutter (instructions for mixing are on the back of the bottle) and used a rag or sponge to clean whatever surfaces I needed.

We also purchased a couple empty plastic spray bottles and mixed Krud Kutter in those with water.

The directions say to spray or apply the cleaner on and let it sit for a couple minutes, then come back and clean, which makes a big difference in how much you need to scrub.

The bottle says this has no odor. I wouldn’t say *no* odor, but the odor is mild. It’s not at all harsh like some cleaners.  (Like the oven cleaner we used — that did work miracles — but drove us literally out of the kitchen for several hours gasping for breath.)

I like that I didn’t need to purchase multiple products, saving me time.

Plus, it’s not that expensive. I purchased one bottle, really deep cleaned my whole house, and still have most of the bottle left.

It’s scary how much grease you find when you move your stove. This cleaned it all, and that’s saying something.

I used Krud Kutter to pre-clean everything before painting — walls, baseboards, you name it, plus clean kitchens, bathrooms, and more.

We wore out the cat. Moving is hard work.
