Home cleaning essentials
Cleaning the home can sometimes be daunting and frustrating if you do not have the proper tools on hand. However, since cleaning is extremely necessary for all households, you might want to think about taking the time to stock up on some essential cleaning supplies. We’ve put together a guide for what every household needs when it’s time to suck it up, put on some good music, and do a little cleaning around the home.
All purpose cleaner
With an all purpose cleaner, you can easily clean the kitchen and the bathroom. From all the surfaces found in your kitchen like countertops, stove top, oven, and microwave to the ones found in your bathroom, like the shower and bathtub, you will be able sanitize and clean it all. If you are faced with tougher grime in these places you may want to think about a specific cleaner, but for a quick, easy, and effective solution go for an all purpose cleaner.
Cleaning supply caddy
Even if you home’s space, you will want to think about a caddy to carry all of your cleaning supplies. This will help keep you organized both when you’re cleaning and when you’re not. It will also help to maintain your sanity so you aren’t constantly going back and forth between each room if you forget something; as long as it’s all in the caddy then you will be able to clean faster.
Steam mops are great tools for cleaning all types of floors that isn’t carpeting. Instead of having to carry around a bucket of water and separate mop, which is an enormous pain, steam mops combine the two and give you an especially clean and sanitized result. All you need is some water and an outlet and the mop will do the rest of the work for you. Also the steam mop’s cloth can easily be cleaned and reused through your regular laundry.
Microfiber cleaning cloth
These soft cloths are the absolute best and most effective for dusting. They attract the dust particles and hold on to it, absorbing and not allowing the dust to escape and spread around your house, which is what most feather dusters do. Once you pick up dust with one of these cloths then you are eliminating the dust from your home, not spreading it. Plus they are reusable with the proper washing technique; be sure not to use any dryer sheets, fabric softener, or bleach because these will break down their material making their dust collecting purpose futile.
