5 Everyday Cleaning Items Every Household Needs

5 Everyday Cleaning Items Every Household Needs

In the time between receiving a professional house cleaning, messes can happen. From spilled juice to stained clothing, keeping your home and belongings in pristine condition matters. Ready to clean more effectively? These are the five everyday cleaning items that every household needs!

Cleaning With Vinegar

Simple and easy to find, vinegar is a great universal cleaning solution that can be used in the home. Dealing with pesky grass stains popping up on light-wash clothes, or pet stains that have found their way into your carpet? Pour a solution of vinegar diluted with water, let sit for 10-15 minutes and gently pat dry with a paper towel. If the stain isn’t entirely lifted, repeat this process.


Cleaning With Bleach

Although you may have thought that bleach was only for keeping white loads of laundry looking script, beach can also be used when scrubbing and sterilizing common areas of the home. Mix a two-parts water with one-part bleach to create a simple solution that will help you scrub away grime from tub basins and showers in no time.


Cleaning With Baking Soda

Need to neutralize home odors fast? Look to baking soda to help! If you’re dealing with a particular area where a pet stain has been been removed but may have left a residual odor, sprinkle on a bit of baking soda to help lift the odor out of carpets.


Cleaning With Dish Soap

Dish soap isn’t just for the pots and pans anymore! Grab a bottle and mix one squirt of dish soap with a generous amount of water to create a gentle, universal cleaner for outdoor items like grills, patio furniture and more.


Cleaning With Hydrogen Peroxide

Sometimes it’s nearly impossible to tend to hard-to-clean places around the home, like sink drain covers and the nooks and crannies of faucets. Hydrogen peroxide to the rescue! Pour on a bit of this solution into those hard-to-reach spaces, watch it bubble, and then wipe away 5-10 minutes later. Note that not all hardware finishes are hydrogen peroxide-friendly, so be sure to check on this before pouring on this cleaning solution.
