For someone who is in the cleaning business for quite a while, I have an equal share of cleaning products and tools. Over the years, I learned how to pick my favorite. There are so many products and tools out there. I cannot write everything about all the beautiful products that we can use for cleaning. I will share with you my seven favorites must-have cleaning products and tools that we can use either at home, in office cleaning, or commercial cleaning.
- Castile Soap
At first, I thought it was weird because it is vegetable-based. I saw how amazing it was. The thing I love about Castile Soap is that it gets to the surface squeaky clean. You can use it pretty much on anything in your office. It is very neutral and very safe. It is an excellent replacement for dishwashing liquid.
You can also get unscented Castille Soap, and you can mix up the scent that you would like to have in your office or your home. It is very safe for you, your office cleaner and, your commercial cleaner. You can also use Castille Soap as a hand soap.
It is hard to imagine that you are cleaning without a good-quality sponge. Sponges work well with grime that you need to breakthrough. Over the years, I have come across hundreds of sponges to test. I came across a couple of my favorites.
The first one is a flat scrub pad. You can find this in-home organizing stores, or you can get them online. They are great. They are easy to use. They are easy to clean with plus they do not get that dirty. Flat scrub pad scrub without scratching. You can trust your office cleaner not to leave any scratches on the stainless sink.
The second one is the non-scratching cellulose sponge. I like these because they do not stain and they do not hold on to odors. They are also a lot way more comfortable to keep clean. These are fabulous for doing a wipe down or any general cleaning where you do not need to use anything thorough or heavy-duty.
- Enzyme Cleaners
It has many amazing uses for each application for it that you can think of. Vegetable-based enzyme cleaners are safe. Enzymes work a little differently than any other cleaning product. For example, soap has surfactants which means it can raise dirt to the surface, which will make it easy for you to wipe away. Acids used in cleaning products etch away some of the dirt or build-up or soap scum.
Enzyme cleaner softens the build-up. The effectiveness of the enzyme cleaner depends on its sitting time. You need to let it sit for a few minutes for it to do its work. It eliminates dirt, bacteria, germs, grease, and grime. Enzyme cleaners are tough to come by. I recommend that you search and purchase it online. They are natural and safe to use. You do not need to remind your office cleaner to wear special gloves when handling these chemicals.
- Disposable Gloves
Use this when you need to clean the toilet or any corner of the office where you think dirt and germs are deeply-seated. We also suggest our commercial cleaners to use a pair of this whenever they need to empty the bins. They are straightforward to put on and to take off in a very sanitary manner, and you can toss it in the bin after using it.
- Essential Oils
These oils are vital. You may want to mask a specific smell when you make up your cleaning products. Most cleaners do not have the most pleasant aroma in the world. Sometimes, cleaners smell nice, but it is still considered as synthetic scent. You can always mix essential oils to your cleanser to achieve the smell that you would like your home or office to have.
Find a combination of essential oils that you love. Just dash in a few drops of this essential oil into your cleaning solution before you start cleaning. Not only that they smell great. The essential oil has many properties that are quite helpful when it comes to cleaning. They are anti-bacterial and anti-microbial. Just look for a 100% pure essential oil.
- Spray Bottles
These are essential if you enjoy formulating your own cleaner. Every commercial cleaner needs to have a good-quality, reliable spray bottle that will not break easily. A good spray bottle needs to fit right in your hand. It will be painful if the spray bottle does not fit. The next thing that you need to inspect is the quality of the trigger. Give it a few pulls and see how good it works. If it does not feel right, it may fall off very quickly. Also, check if the thread holds to the bottle nicely. Leaks can bother you when you are cleaning.
- Cordless Vacuum Cleaner
Vacuum cleaners had come a very long way. These days, a cordless vacuum is easy to find. This is one of my favourite cleaning tools. It easy to maneuver and you can work your way through your cleaning without worrying about the cords or other hindrances. It is sturdy and convenient to use. The cordless vacuum cleaner is not expensive. There are extensive selections and brands that are affordable in the market.
