I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone that likes to clean as much as I do.
Who knows? Maybe I’m wrong. But so far in this lifetime, I have not met a single person besides me who would add “cleaning” to their list of hobbies.
When most of us think about cleaning, we often think about what kinds of shortcuts or tricks we can use during the week just to get by. Because let’s face it: hardly any of us truly have the time to commit to cleaning the house the way we should. Everything seems to get in the way of cleaning–whether it’s your kids, your job, your schoolwork, or just plain “don’t wanna do it” syndrome.
For me, the only thing that seems to help when I’m cleaning is to be organized and to have all the right tools because: A. I’ll have everything I’ll need, and B. I won’t have any excuses. There’s nothing worse than when you’re just about ready to tackle your house cleaning chores and all of a sudden you realize you’re out of paper towels, cleaner, and you can’t remember where you put your rubber gloves. Having all your basic home cleaning necessities is essential to keeping your house healthy and fresh.
So to help you get organized I’m going to give some lists of basic cleaning supplies. These are items that you should have on hand all the time in order to clean your home effectively.
A List of Basic Cleaning Supplies
•Trash cans (for all areas of the home)
•Trash liners (can use store bought or re-used plastic grocery bags for a greener alternative)
•Recycling bins (either one your neighborhood provides or several store bought bins)
•Microfiber mop/ Electronic mop with cleaning pad
•Broom and dustpan
•General all-purpose cleaner
•Vinegar (to make homemade cleaning solutions)
•Baking Soda (this magical substance can pretty much cure anything)
•Apron with plenty of pockets
•Wood furniture cleaner
•Toilet/ Tub cleaner
Although this list may seem like a lot, I can guarantee that you will use every single one of these on at least a weekly basis. And while you take care of the basic housekeeping, remember to let Kiwi Services take care of the heavy duty cleaning jobs.
