Cleaning Supplies

If you want a clean house or office, you have to have cleaning supplies. There are many different kinds of cleaners out there, and it is hard to know what will work well for a very good price. The good news is that most of the cleaning supplies you can buy do work to some degree, and even homemade ones can work well if you really want to save some money. What you need will depend on your needs and your budge, but you don’t have to spend a lot to get a good clean home.

I once worked for a maid service while I put myself through college. It wasn’t a bad job, but it certainly wasn’t something I wanted to do with the rest of my life, that much I knew. I did, however, learn a lot of neat things about cleaning when I worked there, and I also learned how to save a lot of money on cleaning supplies. Though they were a big company, they never spent a lot on their cleaning supplies. In fact, the simpler the item, the better it seemed to work.

For windows, our cleaning supplies were nothing more than water and vinegar along with a lint free towel. That was it. The water and vinegar solution worked better than anything you can buy on the market. It left no streaks whatsoever and cut through the nastiest grime quickly and effectively. Since those days, I include this in my cleaning supplies because I know it will work and it will always work well. The smell of it might not be as pleasant as some of the products you can buy, but if you want the best clean, you don’t even notice.

Other cleaning supplies my company used where safe for the environment, with a few exceptions. The basic kitchen and bath sprays we had were considered safe enough to drink, even though we never would have done so. There were other cleaning supplies we had to have that were not as good for the environment, but we used them only when we had to. There is only so much you can do to an oven without a good oven cleaner sometimes, especially if it has been ignored for quite some time. If you are into helping the environment, like I wish we all would be, you can find some great supplies for cleaning that will make you feel good and will give you a clean house too.
