New Year's Resolution Two: Keep the House Clean

It’s Day 2 of resolutions here at Brandefy. Of course, all of our resolutions are to save, but we also want to keep our houses (and Brandefy HQ cleaner). See how with these dupes. Of course, we are not paid by anyone to do these reviews.

Master Laundry

Downy Cool Cotton Fabric Softener vs. Target up & up Fresh Linen Fabric Softener

Similarity Score: 87%

The only difference we noticed here was smell- Downy smells a little more floral, while up & up has a true cotton scent. Both functioned well, and if you are not married to the Downy scent, we recommend switching to save. Buy Our Pick


All Free and Clear Laundry Detergent vs. up & up Fresh and Clear Laundry Detergent

Similarity Score: 85%

The up&up detergent did well cleaning our clothes. The only difference between the store brand detergent and All is the smell. All has a stronger smell, but we prefer fragrance free, so we will be switching to save. Buy Our Pick

Spray it Down

Method All Purpose Surface Cleaner Clementine vs. Target Smartly All-Purpose Cleaner Smells Like a Citrus Grove

Similarity Score: 83%

While the ingredient score is low, Smartly has far fewer ingredients than Method. We thought the smell and functionality were very similar. Smartly gives you lots of cleaning solution, but it is heavy lifting for the task of cleaning. Buy Our Pick


Bounty 2-Ply Paper Towels vs. Costco Kirkland Signature Create a Size Paper Towels

Similarity Score: 88%

The store brand absorbs better than the name brand and rips more easily, in our opinion. We'd switch to save!

Sweep it Up

Swiffer Sweeper Dry Sweeper Pads vs. Walmart Great Value Dry Sweeping Pads

Similarity Score: 94%

This is a great product to switch and save on! The Great Value mops had the same design as Swiffer, they were both durable, and both picked up loads of golden retriever hair!

Now go out there and conquer, ladies and gents!
