I am obsessed with cleaning. It is my only sanity amidst the stresses of shelter-in-place. If you are also looking to fill up some of your free time by doing some spring cleaning, here is the stuff you need to get your house, apartment, or bedroom sparkling clean and fresh.
This Dyson V7 Animal Pro+ Cordless Vacuum Cleaner ($399.99 on Amazon) is the most amazing vacuum I’ve ever used. Okay, it’s a very expensive vacuum I’ll admit, but it’s worth every penny. I spent a long time convincing myself that it’s something I really needed. I finally just bit the bullet and bought it, and I haven’t regretted that purchase for a single second. This thing gets dog hair, dirt, dust, pretty much anything. It’s super light and it’s cordless. The added mobility makes vacuuming ten times faster and easier.
TETHYS Flat Floor Mop and Bucket Set ($27.99 on Amazon) is the perfect blend of old-fashion practicality and new technology. It’s simple, but genius. The mopping solution goes on one side, and the other side is to dry off the mop. Cleaning products should be all about making the job as easy as possible, and this mop accomplishes that goal. Both the mop and the bucket are lightweight and easily maneuvered, making mopping the floor a total breeze.
My house is completely filled with Mrs. Meyers cleaning products. I swear by this brand. All of their products are killer, but my favorite is the Multi-Surface Concentrate ($15.98 for a pack of two on Amazon). I mix it with water and use it to mop. This solution cleans counters, walls, tables, and the outside of my washing machine. I use this stuff to clean pretty much everything.
Another Mrs. Meyer’s essential is their hand soap ($11.37 for a pack of 3 on Amazon). The hand soap is gentle enough not to irritate sensitive skin but still leaves your hands feeling squeaky clean.
Mrs. Meyer’s products are my favorite mostly because of how amazing they smell. I am picky about scents, and Mrs. Meyer’s never disappoints. The lavender and the lemon verbena are my go-to’s, but I’ve never found a Mrs. Meyer’s product that my nose didn’t like.
Mr. Clean Magic Eraser ($6.97) is another spring cleaning holy grail. I just moved, and I managed to get scuff marks on pretty much every single wall I tried to put anything on. The magic eraser is a, well, magic solution to all that. I use it to get scuff marks off of walls and to clean any stubborn marks on the bathtub, shower, kitchen counter, or sink. It does pretty much everything and it does it well.
Microfiber cloths are a relatively new addition to my cleaning repertoire, but I’m never turning back. These cloths ($6.95 for a pack of 8) are way more environmentally friendly than using paper towels to wipe up. They also pick up every little bit of dirt and grime. To get them clean, just toss them into the washing machine. I thought these were going to be a pain, but they clean much better than their paper counterparts and I don’t have to feel guilty about killing trees. It’s a win-win.
