Choose an angular, soft bristled broom that’s easy to use. Try it out in the store a bit to make sure the height is good for you. It takes a while to wear out a good broom.
Heavy Duty Mop
The large wooden handled mop with washable rope heads will hold up for years and never leave you wanting. The weight of a heavy duty mop really helps to scrub stubborn spots and deep clean your floors.
There’s a reason professional window washers use squeegees – they work and their cleaning power is worth a lot. Use a squeegee on windows, mirrors and closet doors.
Cut up your kid’s old baby blankets, stained bath towels, old sheets and t-shirts to make a stockpile of rags for cleaning.
It’s worth the price if you want your home sparkling clean, more so if you have wall to wall carpet throughout your house, or if you have long haired pets.
You’ll need a couple of brushes, one designated just for the toilet bowl and one for everything else. A long handled scrubber for the toilet is ideal. Avoid the type with a metal loop on the end, as they can scratch the enamel on your toilet bowl. It’s a good idea to get a different colored or shaped brush for the rest of the house, so no one mixes up the toilet brush with the sink brush.
Quality Spray Bottles
All purpose cleaners expensive but the scent and cleanliness they offer will be great. Not forgetting spray polish for tables that leaves them sparkling.
Buckets are extremely helpful when cleaning your house but there’s no need to buy them, an old big detergent bucket could do just fine.
