Here is a helpful list of cleaning tools and products to keep in your home for all your regular cleaning projects.
A Dependable Vacuum
Vacuums are absolutely a must-have in every home. There’s no telling what kind of messes you’ll need to clean up around the house each week, so having a good and dependable vacuum at the ready is always a good idea.
Like vacuums, mops are a key necessity in most homes. There are a variety of mops available in most department stores, so be sure to choose one that can keep up with you and your home’s needs.
A Duster Stick
Dusting is no one’s favorite task, but it can be highly satisfying. Find a dusting wand that can extend for those hard-to-reach places around the house, and make sure you choose one that can trap and hold the dust so that you’re removing it and not just pushing it around.
A Toilet Brush
A toilet brush is easily one of the most basic cleaning tools to have in your home. Who wants to stick their hands in a dirty toilet to clean with a sponge when you have a long-handled scrub brush designed for the job?
Microfiber cloths are great for cleaning up wet messes, polishing mirrors and other glass surfaces, and even dusting. They are also a great way to minimize paper towel use since you can just toss them in the washing machine when you’re done.
A Broom and Dustpan
For all those crumbs that seem to accumulate around the kitchen and the dirt and leaves that find their way inside the front door, the classic and trusty broom and dustpan cover it all. Such a simple tool should be a no-brainer staple in every home.
Some Scrub Brushes
Scrub brushes are a great way to break up tough grease and grime in the kitchen, scrub stubborn stains from carpets, and remove hard water and soap scum from tubs and showers. You can easily pick up a few of these and keep one with your kitchen supplies and your bathroom supplies.
For those of us who don’t enjoy touching the dirty surfaces and crevices around the house with our bare hands, rubber gloves are a lifesaver. You can grab a pack of those classic yellow rubber gloves from almost any store and keep your hands clean and protected while you handle chemical cleaners and grimey messes.
Multi-surface spray or wipes are a handy product to keep in your home for everyday messes and sticky spills. This is also a great way to minimize the number of products you use in your home and there are a ton of kid and pet-safe brands you can choose from to keep everyone in your home happy and healthy.
White vinegar is one of the most versatile products for cleaning around the house and you can find it almost anywhere. It may be smelly, but it’s great for a huge number of cleaning projects and is safe to use around kids and pets.
Toilet Bowl Cleaner
Keeping your toilets clean and disinfected regularly is important for the health and well-being of your home, so make sure you have a good toilet bowl cleaner. One good way to stay ahead and spend less in the long run is by buying these in a multi-pack, which is available in most stores.
Everyone has mirrors and windows in their homes, and the best way to keep them shiny and clean is with a highly trusted glass cleaning spray. Using your glass cleaner with your microfiber cloths is guaranteed to leave you with a streak-free finish.
For homes with hardwood, tile, and linoleum, having a good floor cleaner on hand is always a good idea to stay on top of any mud or sticky spills on the floor. Clean and shiny floors are key to having a great-looking house for you and your guests.
Disinfecting the high-touch surfaces in your home is the best way to keep you and your family healthy, especially during cold and flu seasons. We highly recommended having a good disinfectant spray or wipes on hand at all times.
Baking soda, like white vinegar, is a versatile and effective product to use when cleaning around the house. There are a ton of ways to use it, but one of the best is as a super efficient carpet deodorizer.
No home is safe from an accidental stain here and there on carpets and furniture, so it’s smart to have a stain-removing spray on hand for those emergencies. Be sure to check that is safe for your furniture before buying any spray.
