6 Must Have Spring Cleaning Products

 
Vacumn – I’m going to assume that most if not all of us have a reliable vacuums already, yet if you are needed a new one soon, choose one that gets into those hard-to-reach {and often overlooked} spots. Long-reach wands are great at eliminating dust bunnies on baseboards and in tight corners, or in the bends of stairs and on high ledges.

Duster – Choose one with a long handle so that you can get in between and behind those areas which might not see regular cleaning. Think: behind the TVs, the back of the fridge, and on top of photo frames and moulding. 

Gloves – With all the scrubbing you’ll be doing during a spring clean, keep your hands and arms dry and protected. Choose a textured palm to avoid slipping, and be thankful for using them when you don’t have pruney, dry or irrupted hands and nails after the job is done.

Bucket & cloths – Make sure to have a large capacity container that can be used for cleaning, even fitting a mop. I like to use microfibre cloths when cleaning {both the scrub and to dry} as they have superior pick-up and can dry without leaving lint or fibres. As an added bonus, microfibre cloths can also be used with sweeper products instead of purchasing costly disposable ones. 

Disinfectant Cleaner – This is a must-have yet one which is left up to your choosing. Pretty much everything like bathroom sinks, kitchen sinks, countertops, and tables all require cleaning with some sort of ‘cleaner’ whether that be a brand-name disinfectant or simply a vinegar and water or baking soda and water mixture. 

affresh® Dishwasher cleaner – One thing I always do during my spring cleaning regime, is to make sure I clean inside that I use affresh dishwasher cleaner. Actually, you should be using affresh every month for optimal performance, yet did you know that only 25% of Canadians have cleaned inside their dishwashers in the last 12 months? I bet if you include using affresh in your spring cleaning chores, you’ll ensure to use it monthly thereafter – the difference is amazing.

Using affresh® is a simple, cost-effective way to power away hard water and mineral deposits to keep your dishwasher working its best. You can use affresh either with an empty dishwasher or one filled with dishes ready to be washed {it’s gentle on dish ware}.

Aside from the beauty of a clean dishwasher, another perk is that affresh does the work for you. With all the scrubbing and manual cleaning we do during this time of year, it’s nice to have a no-hassle product on our side that involves such little effort on our parts.
