Spring is the perfect time to declutter and deep clean your home. But cleaning your house can be overwhelming, especially if you have a cupboard overflowing with cleaning supplies!

The process becomes even more difficult if you realise you don’t have the products you actually need to get the job done. So what cleaning products do I need? And which sanitisers are most effective?

Choosing the best cleaning products for deep cleaning can be a challenge when there are so many options available — but we’re here to help! We’ve put together some of the top professional cleaning supplies that experts use to get properties sparkling clean.

10 of the best cleaning products for deep cleaning

  1. Microfibre cloths
  2. Microfibre cloths are a cleaning essential! They are versatile, reusable, and deliver fantastic cleaning results. You can use microfibre cloths anywhere you would usually use a paper towel or standard cleaning cloth.

    They are useful for

    • Dusting or polishing hard surfaces
    • Removing streaks on glass and stainless steel
    • Cleaning kitchen appliances
    • Scrubbing bathrooms
    • Mopping up spills

    Remember to wash your microfibre cloths at least once a week or every three times you use them. If you want tips on how to clean your microfibre cloths, check out this guide by The Spruce.

  3. Multipurpose disinfectant
  4. You can use a quality multipurpose disinfectant in multiple areas of your home, thus reducing the number of products you need to keep your home clean

    For instance, the Byotrol 4 in 1 formula has been specially formulated to kill 99.9% of known bacteria and viruses and then deliver 24-hour protection, along with a residue-free finish.

    This innovative solution can be used on most hard surfaces and comes in a convenient spray bottle.

  5. Lightweight hoover
  6. Experts recommend hoovering carpets and hard surfaces at least once a week to remove dust, dirt and other debris. You should do this more often (2-3 times a week) if you have pets or suffer from allergies

    Regular hoovering will improve the overall hygiene of your home, but you need to make sure that you have the right tools to remove allergens effectively. Choose a hoover that is powerful, lightweight, and easily manoeuvrable.

    Most modern hovers also come with several attachments to help you reach hard-to-clean places like stairs, stairs, and soft furnishings.

  7. Long handle duster
  8. Microfibre cloths are great for dusting surfaces, but you will need a long-handled duster to clean hard-to-reach areas like ceilings, door frames, and the tops of windows. Look for a duster with an extendable handle and a microfibre head.

  9. Toilet cleaner
  10. Did you know that the average toilet bowl contains 3.2 million bacteria per square inch?

    Experts recommend thoroughly disinfecting your toilet at least once a week to remove germs and bacteria.

    You should clean your toilet using a tough bleach-based toilet cleaner and a good toilet brush, such as one made from silicon. You can remove stubborn stains from your toilet bowl using common household items like baking soda and vinegar.

  11. Rubber gloves
  12. Some cleaning solutions contain harsh chemicals that can cause skin irritation and rashes. You should always wear rubber gloves to protect your hands when using these products. This is especially true when using strong cleaning chemicals such as bleach or oven cleaner.

  13. Oven cleaner
  14. Experts recommend giving the inside of your oven a deep clean every three months, or when you notice the smell of burnt food or smoke while you’re cooking.

    Ovens are notoriously difficult to clean because grime often becomes deeply ingrained in different parts of the oven. You need to keep on top of your oven cleaning or grease and dirt can quickly build up and affect your oven’s performance.

    Purchase a good oven cleaner and make sure you remove and clean all of the shelves and trays. You may want to leave oven shelves to soak in hot water and soap overnight to get rid of tough grime and stains.

  15. Cleaning sponges
  16. Cleaning sponges are another cleaning essential with various applications. Let’s look at three of the most popular cleaning sponges and their uses:

      1. Abrasive sponges: These sponges have a rough surface that is great for removing food or debris from pans and hard surfaces.
      2. Natural sponges: These sponges are extremely absorbent and perfect for cleaning windows and mopping up large spills.
      3. Cellulose sponges: These low-cost sponges are used for various cleaning tasks including wiping down kitchen surfaces, washing dishes, and cleaning bathroom appliances.
  17. Floor mop
  18. You should be mopping high-traffic areas in your home (such as hallways, kitchen, and bathrooms) at least once a week according to the professionals. You can mop less frequently used areas of your home every two weeks.

    Microfibre mops are a good option because they use less water than standard cotton mops and clean floors to a very high standard. They are also lighter and more agile than traditional mop and bucket varieties.

    You will also need to purchase a floor cleaner that is safe to use on your type of flooring.

  19. Glass cleaner
  20. A good glass cleaner will clean windows and glass surfaces without leaving dreaded streaks. It will also do a good job of cleaning other household surfaces, including granite, tile and mirrors.
