Cleaning the house can be a complex business. Each room requires a different procedure and each surface requires different cleaning products. Here, we give you an overview of the products available for you to stock up your cleaning cupboard, and list those most essential.
There are basic specialised cleaning products, which should be in your cleaning store, as they are likely to solve most of your cleaning issues:
- Toilet cleaner
- Bathroom cleaner
- Anti-bacterial cleaner
- Window Cleaner
- Floor cleaner
- Laundry detergent
- Fabric softener
- Washing-up liquid
In addition to these specialised cleaning products, there are other cleaning materials that will help you clean your home or deal with most issues! Here we list six materials that everyone can use to have a clean home!
Remember, before using any new cleaning product or method, make sure to test it on a small, inconspicuous area first.
1. A Good Multi-Purpose Cleaner
Most small house cleaning jobs can be done with a dish sponge or cloth and a good multi-purpose cleaner like Jif Actifizz, or you can make your own cleaner by following these directions:
- Take a couple of tablespoons of either distilled white vinegar or washing up liquid
- Mix the above into about a litre or so of warm water
- Shake thoroughly, and pour into a spray bottle of any kind.
You’re now equipped to handle almost any surface dirt.
2. A Mildly Abrasive Cleaning Agent
This will help you get rid of anything that you can’t get rid of with a multi-purpose cleaner, allowing you to scrub away stubborn dirt. Make sure whatever product you choose is not too abrasive, though, as it could cause scratching, especially on polished surfaces.
