- Dish soap diluted in warm water
Kitchen Cleaning Supplies
- All-purpose cleaner
- Oven cleaner
- Stainless steel cleaner (if you have stainless steel appliances)
- Scrubbing sponges (buy a five-pack!)

- Warm water mixed with a basic dishwashing liquid, ideal for cleaning stone countertops

Tips to Clean the Floors
If your house is made of hardwood flooring, which is polished using polyurethane, the easiest way to clean is to add about 1 – 2 tablespoons of dishwashing liquid soap to a 5-gallon bucket of warm water. Before you start mopping, don’t forget to vacuum or sweep the floors first. You can also dry mop the floor before starting the process to get rid of debris particles or any small dirt.
You can also use this solution if you have linoleum or tile flooring in your house. While cleaning tiles, be sure the dirty water does not get into the grout lines with dirty water, because that can cause discoloration to your floor.
Tips for Cleaning Countertops
You need to use an effective all-purpose liquid to clean hard surfaces in your house, including countertops. The marble, granite, as well as quartz surfaces on your kitchen, are too delicate for harsh chemical-laden cleaners. So be sure to only clean them using a dish detergent, which is mild. Additionally, make sure to only use warm water which will prevent the stone’s sealant from breaking down.
Tips for Cleaning the Sink
Want your steel sink to outshine your utensils? Then clean it by sprinkling some baking soda in it and then rubbing it all over the steel using a sponge. Let the powder set in for a while and then spray white vinegar all over it. Once the foam becomes dissolute, let your sink air dry after cleaning it with cool water.
Cleaning Tips for Garbage Disposal
Once you have cleaned your sink, add two halves of a lemon down the garbage disposal. When you run the disposal, your sink area will smell fresh and clean.
Lemons are also a great ingredient for cleaning your chopping boards. Just squeeze some lemon on your boards and vigorously rub half part of it. This will help you get rid of stubborn stains. Make sure you let the juice sit there for a while, to get rid of the strong odor before you rinse it off.
If you want to clean any special kitchen products, like stainless steel cleaners and oven cleaners, make sure to follow the directions mentioned in the manufacturer’s guide.
For instance, most houses are made with hardwood floors sealed with polyurethane. To clean such surfaces, just add about 1 to 2 tablespoons of dishwashing liquid into 5-gallons of warm water. Just like before, make sure you are vacuuming the area or at least sweeping or dry mopping it before beginning with the cleaning process.
You will need the following products to clean your bathroom:
- Toilet brush
- Grout brush
- Grout & tile cleaner
- An all-purpose cleaner
A toilet brush, hands down, is your best product to keep your toilet clean and control the spreading of germs. When cleaning up the grout on your bathroom and shower floors, you can use a small brush that has firm bristles or a special grout brush. Always be sure to check out the product specifications before you start cleaners. The basic all-purpose cleaners are ideal for other hard surfaces and sinks as well
Cleaning Products for Bedrooms and Living Areas
You will need the following types of products to clean different rooms of your house:
- Glass cleaner
- Extendable duster
- Lint roller
If you want to avoid any unwanted cloth residue or streaking while cleaning your windows, use a newspaper and not a paper towel to do the job.
Lint rollers are perfect for cleaning delicate surfaces. This a must-have product if you have pets in the house. The extendable duster is an essential item that comes in handy for reaching and cleaning ceiling fans along with other nooks and corners that are hard to access.
People have spent a lot of time, to themselves at homes, during the quarantine period. The world is still not ready to step out full-fledged. So while you are at it, you might as well take up intense home cleaning so that you live in a clean neat environment, until the world gets ready for you.
