Essential cleaning supplies to put in your kit

  1. Multipurpose cleaner – number-one in your cleaning kit! If you could only have one item in your kit, what would it be? Of course, the one that can tackle any kind of dirt and on any kind of surface. All-purpose cleaner is indispensable for keeping walls, floors, and countertops in both kitchen and bathroom clean. If you still don’t have a favorite, add Pledge Antibacterial Multi-Surface Cleaner to your home cleaning kit or do it yourself out of natural ingredients.
  2. Heavy-duty dirt remover
    Maybe you don’t need it every day, but having a thing that can literally erase any kind of dirt from everywhere sounds fantastic. That is why we recommend equipping your kit for home cleaning with a sort of magic among cleaning supplies – Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.
  3. Mirror/glass cleaner
    Wiping down dirt and marks from mirrors and windows without smears in just seconds – this is what all housewives want from a good glass cleaner. You can either prepare your own all-natural vinegar-based spray for windows or use classics that never fail – Windex Original Glass Cleaner.
  4. Disinfectant (liquid, spray or wipes)
    Keeping some bacteria and germ packed areas in your home as sterile as possible is key to preventing diseases in your family, especially in the season of colds and flu. For this reason, one of those antibacterial cleaning supplies (think about Clorox Clean-Up With Bleach in a spray bottle) must be in your cleaning kit. We also recommend having disinfectant in wipes version (Lysol Dual-Action Disinfecting Wipes), which are very handy in the toilet area – grab, wipe, and toss.
  5. Bleach
    Another heavy-duty item in your kit for cleaning to strategically combat grout and mold that often occurs between tiles in the bathroom. It’s probably the cheapest product among home cleaning supplies for keeping your home mold-free and healthy.
  6. Furniture polish.A lot of modern-day cleaning kits don’t include furniture polish, but we definetely recommend to take one. Furniture polishes smell lovely, and they really helpful for polishing the wooden furniture, unlike many other products. They’ll remove dust and stains, while adding a shine to even the oldest pieces of wooden furniture.

Tools and items to add to your home cleaning kit

  • Rubber gloves. Some cleaning supplies can be aggressive and cause severe skin damage, so be smart and put them into your cleaning kit.
  • Microfiber cloths. Synthetic material of these household rags helps trap dirt and even germs cleaning everything without leaving streaks and lint. Don’t forget to wash them separately from time to time without using fabric softener.
  • Toothbrush. It will reach where other brushes fail to fit. Do not toss old used toothbrushes, but put them into your home kit instead.
  • Sponges with an abrasive side. In your cleaning kit, keep kitchen sponges separately from the bathroom ones to prevent crosscontamination.
  • Vinegar and baking soda. Check out our natural cleaning recipes for amazing, absolutely eco-friendly results. Natural ingredients that can be used for home cleaning are many, but vinegar and soda are just must-haves in your home kit for cleaning.
  • Squeegee. Optional, but we can’t imagine cleaning a shower tray, tiles, and screen without his product. It’s the fastest way to remove watermarks and residue.
