3 Natural Cleaning Products That Save Money

A good home is both clean and insured, for cleaning helps reduce accidents, and insurance helps protect you if there is an accident. At The Stanford Group, we’ve compiled a short list to help you save money while cleaning your home. Additionally, if you live in Ball Ground, GA, homeowners insurance agents at our office can help you save money on home insurance.

Save Money on Cleaning Products

Going green isn’t only good for the environment, it is also often good for your wallet. Here are three natural cleaning products that you can substitute for commercial options:

  • a solution of water and white vinegar will clean windows thoroughly
  • oil on a paper towel will wipe up oil stains
  • a mixture of borax and lemon will work as a heavy-duty scrub for stubborn rust stains

These homemade cleaning products won’t save you millions of dollars, but you might be surprised at how much you can save using natural products rather than commercial ones.

Save Money on Home Insurance

Saving money on homeowners insurance is just as easy when you contact us. You can either shop for insurance policies through our website or call one of our independent insurance agents to compare policies over the phone. No matter how you contact us, we’ll compare all of the insurance policies available to you, making sure you end up with one that both meets your coverage needs and is affordable.

To get started on cleaning, head to your local supermarket and pick up the above-listed natural cleaning supplies. Most grocery stores in Georgia will have the supplies you need. If you’d prefer to delay cleaning, log onto our website or call us to start shopping for a new homeowners insurance policy instead.


How To Avoid Driving When Drowsy

Driving in Ball Ground, GA can be difficult enough as it is. You may encounter a lot of traffic, and bad weather as you take to the roads. If you are drowsy you are not going to be as alert and may veer off the side of the road, cross into oncoming traffic, or not brake in time.

Tens of thousands of accidents occur every year because someone falls asleep at the wheel. You don’t want to become one of these statistics, this means you need to learn how to avoid driving when you are drowsy.

If you have just come off of a long shift at work, you need to evaluate your level of alertness. If you are tired and constantly yawning, there is a good chance that you could fall asleep at the wheel. Especially when traffic is minimal, it can lead to an uneventful drive, and this is when you are more likely to nod off.

Admit when you are sleepy so that you can ask someone to drive you home or call a taxi cab. If you are going to get behind the wheel, be sure that someone else is in the car with you to talk with you and keep you alert.

When you go for long distance drives, whether it is across the state or across the country, drive with someone else so that the two of you can take turns driving. While one drives, the other can sleep. It is also a good idea to get in the habit of breaking every few hours so that you can get out of the car and stretch.

Call and talk to us at The Sanford Group today where we can help you to get car insurance quotes and provide you with various tips for finding the best policy.
