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 (opens in new tab) 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.

Where to find more household deals on Amazon

By household deals we mean everything from cleaning products to items you use everyday without even realising. The stuff that you would forget when writing a shopping list of items for your new home, but would swiftly have to nip to the local supermarket for when you moved in. Bins, pillows, cleaning products, storage boxes, etc...

Sound familiar? Well, if you haven't found what you need on this list, head to the household products section on Amazon (opens in new tab) for more deals.
