Essential products for your home cleaning supplies:

All-purpose cleaner

If you have just one product in your home cleaning supplies, making it an all-purpose cleaner.

The main benefit of an all-purpose cleaner is that it offers great results across multiple surfaces - it's in the name. This makes it an invaluable product to have on hand when cleaning from room-to-room.

They're great on things like kitchen and bathroom countertops. We prefer a spray version for ease, but you can also choose to use a diluted concentrated solution.

Glass & Mirror cleaner

Glass and mirrors are easy to clean, providing you have the right product to hand.

A good glass and mirror cleaner will remove grime and marks without leaving smears or stickiness.

We like to make our own by mixing 1/2 cup rubbing alcohol, 1/3 cup white vinegar, water, and a few drops of essential oils in a spray bottle.


Bathrooms, we're looking at you.

For truly germ-filled areas, nothing's going to do as good a job as disinfectants, which are purpose-made to kill germs and bacteria, preventing illness and sickness amongst your family.

Washing up liquid

We can't express the importance of washing up liquid enough.

You've seen what washing up liquid can do for greasy pots and pans - it's just as powerful in the bathroom too.

Teamed with the rough side of a sponge, washing up liquid is all you need to remove dirt and grime around the sink, on shower tiles and more. Just wash it away once you've scrubbed surfaces smooth.

Furniture polish

Not only do furniture polishes smell lovely, but they really do bring up wooden furniture, unlike any other product.

They'll reduce water-marks and add a gleam and shine to even the dullest of wood.

Bleach (Hydrogen Peroxide)

Due to its highly abrasive nature, we don't recommend using bleach every day; however, it is extremely useful for some common cleaning tasks.

One of these is cleaning the grout between tiles. The results really are amazing, and a testament to why bleach is an essential product to have on hand.

Cleaning cloths

We recommend having a few generic cleaning cloths in your supplies, as you never know when they might come in handy.

They're ideal for using alongside multi-purpose cleaners or disinfectants for wiping down bathroom cabinets, kitchen tops, the outside of your bathtub and more.

Just be sure to clean them periodically; otherwise, they'll spread germs and dirt, hampering your cleaning efforts.


We never clean without wearing rubber gloves.

Rubber gloves provide a barrier between you and cleaning work. This includes not only harsh chemicals, but also grime and other nasties too.

With your hands protected, you can get on with scrubbing without having to worry - speeding up the process and leaving your hands in good nick too.


Another thing every household cleaning supplies should have are sponges.

You should have at least two so that you can prevent the transfer of germs from the toilet to the chopping board.

Cleaning wipes

Often considered a 'short-cut', cleaning wipes can be extremely convenient and practical for some household tasks.

Some jobs, such as cleaning the toilet seat and other 'filthy' surfaces, are most-easily tackled with cleaning wipes. Their 'one use' reduces the risk of germ transfer, and also allows you to pick up dirt such as hairs and dust, and dispose of it in the bin.

Cleaning wipes have a high, environmental impact, so use them sparingly throughout the home. Never flush them down your toilet, even if the packaging says they're flushable.

Paper towel

You don't need a lot of it, but we do recommend you have paper towel in your household cleaning kit.

There is nothing that brings up mirrors and windows like a sheet of paper towel. It not only acts to dry the surface area post-cleaning, but it also buffs it free of marks and smears.

Feather duster

Depending on the layout of your house, it may be worth considering having a feather duster in your cleaning kit.

Feather dusters make easy work of cleaning the top of shelves, cabinets and, of course, those pesky ceiling cobwebs.

Just be sure to start cleaning up high first, to prevent dust falling to lower surfaces later on.
