It’s no secret that I like to clean. It’s not like a passion or anything, I just really enjoy when my spaces are neat and clean, free of dust and clutter. After a full year at home, it took some time, but there has been a shift back to finding the enjoyment in the process versus it just being a chore. Today we’re sharing our favorite cleaning products.
Cleaning supplies can still be limited in stores almost a year into this pandemic. Affiliate links to all supplies listed below are from Target and Amazon.
Laundry Products We Love
We are a family of three and somehow we create a ton of dirty laundry – even in a pandemic and while we’ve been home, the laundry is never-ending. What’s the laundry process in your home? Ours is never fully done and put away, so I’m dying to hear suggestions from others who are killing the laundry game.
OxiClean is an amazing product to brighten and remove stains from whites. I soak dingy whites in a sink full of boiling hot water and a large scoop of OxiClean. Works every time.
Go-To Multi-Purpose Cleaners
I absolutely love Lemon Pledge. I used it on most of my wood surfaces but Lemon Pledge is not a multi-purpose cleaner. However, Pledge Clean-It is a multi-surface cleaner and it can be used on so many surfaces. I’m talking quartz, stainless steel, granite, mirrors and electronics. I use the anti-bacterial version in citrus because it kills 99.9% of bacteria.
Blue Dawn Ultra Liquid Dish Soap is awesome for getting rid of hard water spots. Add equal parts blue Dawn and vinegar to a spray bottle, spray surfaces and let stand a few minutes before cleaning.
Cleaning Products for Stubborn Areas
We have a stainless steel refrigerator and the fingerprints totally gross me out. Weiman Stainless Steel Cleaner and Polish takes them all away. I used it on all my stainless steel appliance surfaces (microwave, stove/oven, dishwasher) with a soft, microfiber cloth.
One True Love: Favorite Cleaning Products
A few years ago, Megan and I did a series of videos called One True Love. Here’s the video we made to share our favorite cleaning products. So many still hold true today!
Be sure to check out the Favorite Cleaning Products tab in our Amazon shop where we’ve linked all the products mentioned in the video plus links to everything I use to keep my house in ship shape.
