Contrary to what some marketers will tell you, there isn’t one cleaning product for every job in the house. What products you use all depends on the room and the type of home cleaning you’re doing, as well as how messy or dirty the area is. Some rooms require intensive cleaning often, like kitchens and bathrooms, and other rooms don’t get quite so dirty. Here’s a guide to the best products to use in different areas of your home for maximum cleaning in minimum time.
Most would agree that the kitchen is the hub of the home and also needs the most cleaning. From preparing and cooking food, to people walking through and messing up the floors, your kitchen probably uses the most cleaning products and demands more of your time to keep it clean. A good all-purpose cleaner can do a lot of the work, but you’ll also need detergents, a good floor cleaner (depending on what type of flooring you have), an anti-bacterial cleaner for bins, bench tops, and other hard surfaces where food is prepared, and perhaps a stainless steel cleaner.
Bathroom and Laundry
Here’s where you’ll also need some heavy duty cleaning power and brushes and scourers to get into those nooks and crannies. You’ll need an anti-bacterial toilet cleaner; one that also incorporates a fresh scent is a good idea. Baths and sinks may need a mildly abrasive cleaner to remove build up and soap scum, and you’ll need glass cleaner for the mirrors and bleach or a commercial mould remover. Don’t forget the floor cleaner, one that doesn’t leave the floor slippery.
Bedrooms and Living Areas
Bedrooms and living areas, including the dining room, often have wooden furniture which will require a specialised wood polish. You can use an anti-bacterial all-purpose cleaner for door handles and other things that are touched frequently. Your carpets will need regular cleaning and a spot cleaner for those little spills, and even a powdered carpet deodoriser that you sprinkle on, leave for a while, and vacuum up. Your upholstered furniture can be freshened with a spray-on odour eliminator that doesn’t harm the fabric. Finally, you’ll need glass cleaner, and if you have pets, a large lint roller can really help to pick up the loose pet hair on chairs, mats and carpets.
If you prefer to use natural products in your home, you can substitute many of your chemical cleaners for baking soda, lemon juice and vinegar, and good old hot water.
