Long-time reader Sumarie asked for a post on my current cleaning supplies and items, seeing as I had reduced them from more than 400 items. This post is in response to that request.
I have a vacumn cleaner and a long handled broom. Then I have these objects:
All these things, except the dust pan and whisk broom fit in the blue caddy at the back.
I use the yogurt cup to rinse the tub after a scrubbing and the Comet cleanser is used to clean the tub and the toilets. I also use the product called Bar Keeper’s Friend. Just depends on which is cheaper when I go to purchase.
The blue fluid is an ammonia-based widow cleaner, and there is no label on it, as the kids used it in a film a few years back. After I use this product up, I will likely switch to plain vinegar or water for the things I use it for now–which is mostly cleaning up cat puke. My frequency of cleaning windows and mirrors in this house is so scarce, that it does not warrant it’s own product.
There is a toilet brush that is not in the photograph.
My cleaning routines are thus:
kitchen counters get wiped down daily with water and scrubby sponge. When the sponge starts to smell bad, I microwave it. If you have a dishwasher, you can put it on the top rack.
Cat puke gets cleaned up as it occurs, with ammonia cleaner and paper towels.
The toilets get cleaned when they start to have a pink ring at the water level or fussy company is coming.
The tub gets cleaned…..not near often enough.
The floors get swept when the cat hair tumbleweeds start to bother me…or company is coming.
The Resolve carpet cleaner is for when the cats vomit on the carpet……or I spill food on the car seat.
If I have forgotten to mention your cleaning pet peeve, just ask. I will come clean about how I deal with it. [no extra charge for the bad pun.]
