If you are anything like me, you won't want to love this list of household deals, but it probably will be your favourite round up of Amazon Prime Day 2021, and save you pounds in the process. Sure, we all want a swanky new coffee machine and a pair of AirPods, but really nothing gives us more joy than a well stocked cleaning cupboard, a bulk buy on something like dishwasher rinse aid, and an under-sink storage system that looks like it has been tidied by Monica from Friends.

While all these schmucks are busy telling you where to buy the best air fryers, or luring you in with some heavily discounted Echo devices, I have been doing the really important job of scouring Amazon's Homecare & Cleaning section for deals on everything from a sexy new bin (definitely a thing) to bedding must haves and disinfectant multi-buys.

So, sit down, scroll away and stock up.
