So I have been doing lots of posts on my homemade cleaners but there are commercial cleaners and products that I found are essential in my cleaning arsenal.
For products I can’t get enough of the smell of lavender. You may have noticed that I add lavender essential oil to my homemade cleaners and I usually go for that same smell in my store bought products as well.
Top 10 Best Cleaning Supplies:
1. Windex multisurface
I love this windex because it works not just for glass but for many surfaces. Sometimes I use my homemade cleaner but then follow up all over the bathroom with this just for the awesome lavender smell.
2. Clorox Kitchen
With all the raw meat and potentially unhealthy bacteria that can be all over a kitchen sometimes you just need a little bleach. I use this in my sink especially after cooking raw chicken etc. What is also great about this cleaner is that it is safe to use on granite.
3. Lyson Power and Fresh
The Lavender and Orchid scented cleaner is one of my favorite things ever. I use this to mop my floors and nothing makes my house smell better. It does a great job cleaning as well but the smell is what makes it heavenly.
4. Pledge Revitalizing Oil
This is more than furniture polish, this is an oil that brings out a whole new level of shine to wood products. I use this not only on my furniture, but on my kitchen cabinets and my front door. It does just as it says and revitalizes the wood.
5. Mr Clean Magic Erasers
If you don’t have these in your life, you definitely don’t have kids. My girls are always coloring on a wall or table and these little erasers really are like magic in getting rid of all kids of stains. It also works great on just scuffs on the wall. Once a month, I will to use these to spot clean my walls. Also works wonders on cleaning baseboards.
6. Fuzzy Wuzzy Microfiber Duster
This thing dusts like a charm! I mean i love micro fiber clothes and use them all over the house, but this little dusters works wonders, I also love that I can take it off the handle and toss it in the washing machine.
7. Fuzzy Wuzzy Microfiber blind cleaner
We have blinds on every window in our home. Also known as we have dust collectors on every window. Blinds attract so much dust. I try to dust them monthly and before I found this product it was a real pain in the butt! but being able to dust 4 blinds at a time saves so much time.
8. Bamboo Broom
I recently started getting bamboo brooms from my local Chinese store ‘Hong Kong Market’. I know it sounds silly to put a broom on this list but seriously I have no idea what it is about bamboo but these brooms pick up everything.
9. Mini Broom and Dustpan Set
I know I have another broom on this list, but I keep this dustpan set in my breakfast room where the girls eat all their meals. Why you say? Because I have two year olds! It seems like most of their food ends up on the floor under their highchairs. Having this dustpan set close means I can do a quick sweep after every meal. Because the set is so cute I don’t mind it sitting out in the room.
10. Micro Fiber Mop
I recently discovered these mops and I swear it changed my life! I’m not joking I have used all kind of mops, old school, sponge, swiffer you name it. Microfiber is like the most amazing material for mopping, its easily wrung out and does it great job at scrubbing yet is gentle on the tile. You have to try it because its hard to explain the difference. These are actually really hard to find, but I found mine at Tuesday Morning.
