Top Cleaning Supplies to keep your home fresh!

Top Cleaning Supplies to keep your home fresh!

I really love a clean house that sparkles. I always have loved a tidy house with no clutter. (Well, if there is clutter, it is in the closet with the door closed.) My husband will tell you that is where my clutter lived when we were dating. My apartment closets were a little messy, but the rest of my home was clean. I have a few friends that have asked me what I use to keep our house clean. I would love to share with you the products I use. Please know that our house has mostly hardwood floors, Only one room in the house has carpet. I also have two toddlers who love to play outside in the grass and dirt.

 

Vacuum

We love our corded Dyson vacuum cleaner with all of the attachements. My husband mostly uses it to vacuum our main living area from the mess made during the day. The suction is amazing, getting everything in its path. It is great to clean up those beans left over from a sensory bin, or crumbs on the floor. The wand attachment is great to get the steps or baseboards. Also, the cobwebs can be sucked away and who does not like that?! This is a great investment vacuum that will last for many, many years. Here is also a cordless version Dyson that you may like as well.

 

Robot Vacuum:

Hands down we love our IRobot Roomba robot vacuum cleaner. We have had ours for almost three years now. We used it everyday when I was working and the house was empty. Now that I am home with the boys, we have had to be more intentional about using it, but use it most days. I think we would use it more if our toddlers were not scared of it, even if they are in the other room or upstairs. I like to put it in the bedrooms to clean underneath our beds to get all the dust. If you get this to get all of the dust underneath the beds or hard to reach spots it will be worth it. I also like to think of it this way when I run it “Hey, I am at the zoo and vacuuming.” Can you say that? The Roomba takes multitasking to a different level. I love it so much that I know when this one stops working, I will run to get another one.

 

Steam Mop:

A good mop that makes my hardwood floors look amazing was important to me. I remember shopping for a mop that would be great for lots of hardwood floors and having kids. Another important feature of a mop was the steam aspect to kill germs. I really like knowing that germs are gone when I mop. The boys are all over the floor every day. It is a sense of relief knowing that germs are gone. I know they are safe. Also, the mop pads for this one are washable, better for the environment. No special soap is required for it. We are on our second Bissell mop only because my Mom took my first one because she liked it so much! I guess that means something.

 

All Purpose cleaning spray:

I love Mrs. Meyer’s Multi- Purpose cleaning spray. I like the Basil scent. It really does a great job cleaning around our house. It is really safe to use, without parabens, phthalates, animal derived ingredients and cruelty free. I love that the scent is clean and fresh. I feel safe using it around our young boys. They are sometimes around me when I wiping down the house. I do not have to worry about harsh fumes or them touching it. Now that is a great feeling.
