Cleaning for a family of six can be time consuming but with the right products it makes it that much easier. For someone who cleans daily, I have gone through many products. Through the years I have used many different cleaners to find the ones that work well, don’t break the bank and leave you feeling that a deep clean has been accomplished. In this article I am going to list my absolute favorite staple cleaning products I always have on hand in my home.
First and foremost, I would make sure to always wear gloves while cleaning because whether they are harsh or not, they tend to dry out my hands regardless so wearing gloves really protects my hands.
#1 Pine Sol
My first cleaner that has always been my go-to!
Pine-sol – the Original Pine is my absolute favorite scent but for a backup the lemon is a really good one as well! I use this to clean all my non- wood surfaces and it leaves the floors super clean with an amazing smell afterward!
#2 Swiffer Dusters
Swiffer Dusters – these are the best at dusting baseboards and blinds! I also use these to clean the fans and they clean up so much dust effectively. I used to use a feather duster, but these have done a much more efficient job on dusting days.
#3 Weiman Stainless Steel Cleaner
Weiman Stainless Steel Cleaner with Microfiber cloth– Fingerprints can be the worst when it comes to stainless steel and even stainless that doesn’t show fingerprints but any smudges from hands touching surfaces. This spray with the microfiber cloth does such an amazing job with cleaning up the mess but also giving the appliance look new! It truly makes the kitchen feel that much cleaner.
#4 Method Daily Granite Cleaner
Method Granite Cleaner – This does a great job of cleaning granite without being harsh. It leaves it clean with some shine and does well with making sure that any counter spills come up easily. Especially for someone that does a lot of cooking- there always seem to be a little spill somewhere. The best part too – a little spray goes a long way.
#5 Method Eucalyptus Shower Spray
Method Eucalyptus Shower Spray – We have an all glass door in our master bathroom and sometimes the soap can build up. This spray literally does an amazing job of not only cleaning up the tub itself but getting any build up off the glass. I spray and let it soak and then take a sponge to wipe down glass, rinse and then respray and wipe. It works so well!
