This ultimate guide to my favorite home cleaning products has been a long time coming. Dealing with vintage and secondhand items has taught me a lot of valuable lessons. Plus, I’m a mother, so you could call me an expert. Do I consider myself to be a neat freak? No, but I do buy results-oriented house cleaning products. Today, I’m going to share with you some of my favorite home cleaning products.

 

Roomba: I bought this robotic vacuum cleaner a few years ago. She isn’t perfect, but she does a good job of sucking up the crumbs that cling to my shoes. My son eats like a wolverine, and my daughter throws food on the floor all the time. Every other day, we run Roomba, and she definitely keeps the crumbs at bay. Does she ever get tangled up in a rug? Yes, indeed. Is she in a battle with the ceramic tiger? Yes, indeed. Is it true that she despises the cantilever chairs? Yes, indeed. But she follows a routine that I set and forget about. We also bought an extra docking station and once a week let her loose in the basement.

 

Roomba Barriers: We use these barriers to keep Roomba out of the area where there is a no-touchy rug. It works perfectly.

 

Folex: Ask any vintage dealer what their favorite stain remover for upholstery is, and 9 out of 10 will say Folex. This stain remover is incredible, and it’s not just for carpets. Simply spray it on, rub it in with your finger, and watch the stain fade away. There’s nothing to vacuum up. Using a clean cloth or paper towel, blot the spill. When it comes to cleaning supplies, it’s my secret weapon.

 

Affresh Washing Machine Tablets: I had never heard of Affresh until I bought a washer that had a cleaning cycle. Baking soda, vinegar, and bleach, to name a few… I’d tried everything, but my washer was still smelly. I was so fed up with the smell that I went out and bought a new washer. I now put one tablet in the machine once a month and run the cleaning cycle. They also make one specifically for dishwashers, but I prefer to use Finish tablets in mine.

 

Sprayway Glass Cleaner is the only glass cleaner I’ve come across that doesn’t leave streaks. The best I’ve found…end of story. It has a medicinal and granny scent to it, but it cleans so well that I don’t mind.

 

Scrub Daddy Sponge: To begin with, this sponge has an adorable smiley face shape, but don’t let that fool you; this little guy works hard and doesn’t scratch. It can be used on a variety of surfaces, including cookware, vinyl, aluminum, plastic, chrome, and tile, and it changes consistency depending on the temperature of the water. When you use cold water, it hardens, allowing for tough scrubbing. For regular washing, use warm water.

 

After purchasing our first stainless steel appliance, we experimented with a variety of sprays and wipes. This is the first one where there are no fingerprints visible. If you use too much, it will leave an oily residue because it is a polish. I prefer to spray it directly onto a clean cloth rather than the appliance itself to avoid getting it on my floors. Oh, and keep in mind that a little goes a long way.

 

OdoBan: I didn’t know about this cleaning product until I moved into the shop. Try this stuff if you have a stinky drain. Because the floor drain in the shop’s bathroom had a funky, earthy odor, my landlord suggested pouring a little down it. It sanitizes, disinfects, and is virucidal in addition to deodorizing. Before Covid, I bought a gallon jug and now use it for everything.

 

The Works Toilet Bowl Cleaner: Due to new EPA regulations, this magical concoction is nearly impossible to find right now. This stuff works if you have hard water like me and are constantly trying to get rid of the ring in your bowl. Because this is one of my favorite cleaning products to date, I’m hoping that their new formula will produce the same miraculous results.
