I enjoy cleaning.
I am not a germ freak, but I like being in a clean space. I like cleaning that when I do I get in my zone. It relaxes me and I feel like I had a productive day.
These are the things I always make sure to have handy, and even if I travel these are my essential cleaning items.
My current cleaning routine goes like this:
My cleaning days are Sunday mornings as I’m doing laundry. One week I clean bathrooms, and the other I’ll clean floors. I alternate every week.
We have two bathrooms. One in my bedroom, and one in the hallway which is Lyn’s and for the guests. I clean the toilets, sinks, mirrors, and tubs.
On the day I clean my floors I have a three-step routine. First I broom the floor. I do this so I can get most of the hairs out of the way. This prevents the vacuum filling up with hairs which makes it easier to clean the wheels at the end. It still get hairs but it’s easier to clean. Then I vacuum, and then I mop. I used to have a steam mop before but that one broke and I haven’t been able to find one that I like.
This post shows you 5 cleaning supplies I use to clean my home.
PS: I put everything in order of how often I use it. So first product is what I use most often and the last product is what I use less.
This is my go-to product! You can use it to clean anything in your home including tables, spot cleaning, floor, mirrors, and more.
All-purpose cleaner is the way to go because it allows you to have only one bottle in your home that will accomplish multiple tasks. This is a great way to minimize your cleaning items.
My favorite is Method All-Purpose Spray because any their scents smells nice and it is a cruelty free brand. I don’t have a favorite scent because I like all of them and every time I buy a different scent. You can either buy from Target or buy from Amazon.
I use this most on our Ikea Doksta table whenever we finish eating to get rid of crumbs.
I am so glad a brand finally thought of this! For years I had always thought why paper towels wouldn’t have this option to easily tear in half. When I saw this for the first time at the store a few months ago I was SO excited!
I always use paper towels (versus regular towels) for cleaning my home because it is so much more convenient to throw used paper towels away than leaving the dirty fabric towels in the laundry basket. I don’t like the thought of it especially since I do my laundry once a week. Brawny is free of parabens, and animal testing.
This is very basic, it really is a cleaning essential for me in my dorm room.
At the moment I have a lot of this dish soap under the sink because every time my mom sees it on sale she brings me a couple haha.
Apart for the regular use we all use it for, to clean dishes, I use it for other things. I use it to clean the toilets or the tub. I squirt a little because it’s very concentrated, and then I use the toilet brush to clean it. This is a great way to keep your cleaning supplies minimal and use one thing for other uses too.
This is an extra step I take if I want something to be extra clean. At the moment I use cruelty free Method All Purpose Wipes but couldn’t find it on Amazon.
I ask Little Lyn to help me clean things that we touch the most often. For example on door knobs, remotes, our eating table, light switches, dresser drawers, our phones, and more.
I would see people at work get sick and I got through those times without getting sick. I feel like it’s so important to keep your personal space clean while at the same time eat healthy foods. I didn’t get sick this part year and that is a great accomplishment.
Having a vacuum in my home is one of my favorite things I have purchased for my home. I can not recommend you enough to get one of these for your home. I used to have a small Dirt Devil red vacuum when we lived in an apartment and when we moved to this house I bought a bigger vacuum. This one is so much better.
The only downside for me is the weight. I need to be careful because I have a sensitive back and if not I will get backache. It only happens sometimes.
It also comes apart and you can use the handle in places that are hard to reach like the bottom of your couch or clean tight corners.
These are my must have cleaning supplies to have handy at all times and get home to a clean space. I need to get a bin to put my cleaning products in it so it can be easy to have everything in one place when I do my cleaning on Sunday mornings.
These 5 essential cleaning products will guarantee that you will have a home at all times.
