Whether you’re moving into a new home, getting ready for your first apartment, or just taking inventory of your household supplies, buying the right cleaning tools will be essential to your quality of life. Besides, a good deep clean is a lot easier (or even a bit more fun) when you have the right tools and supplies on hand. With that in mind, here's a list of home cleaning must-haves that will surely make your regular cleaning routine efficient:
There's a variety of sponges out there, depending on what you'll use them for. But it'll be nice to have a classic sponge with two sides — an abrasive and cellulose side like the Lola® Natural Cellulose Scrub Sponge that is versatile in terms of cleaning. The scrub side is excellent for gentle and all-purpose cleaning, while the cellulose side wipes and washes clean.
Microfiber cleaning cloths, like the Lola® Jumbo Microfiber Cleaning Cloths, are ideal for picking up dust and are gentle on almost any surface. They’re perfect for tidying up furniture, especially items that you would never want to have cleaning scratches.
Cleaning your home with a sponge or cloth is good for simple stains, but you'll need to invest in getting a good scrub brush that can handle tough stains. The Lola® Any Which Way™ Flexible Scrub Brush is a great choice because it is easy to hold and can be used to clean the walls, and even the hard-to-reach corners of your shower, tub, grout on the floors, and sink.
A dedicated toilet brush for the bathroom is important because, of course, you would not want to use that brush anywhere but the toilet bowl. The Lola® Toilet Bowl Brush & Caddy would be a perfect choice since it comes with a stand so you can conveniently store it next to your toilet.
Once you notice cobwebs are building up in hard-to-reach areas of your home, you'd wish you have an extendable duster that can easily knock them out. With the Swiffer® 360° Extender Duster Comparable Starter Kit, you’ll never have to worry about how to dust those tough-to-reach nooks and crannies.
Broom and Dustpan
The broom and dustpan tandem is an integral part of home cleaning. It is essential for cleaning up debris inside the house or sweeping up clippings on your porch. To neatly sweep all of the dust and debris, indoor or outdoor, the Lola® Angle Broom with Dustpan would be great for the job. Then, the Lola® Rola Sticky Mop™ can bring in the finishing touch for any hard-to-pickup debris that your sweep may have missed.
A mop is your go-to tool for cleaning floor surfaces. No matter what kind of hard floor you have, the Lola® Microfiber Spritz n' Mop would be the efficient choice as it can be used wet for cleaning and dry for dusting.
You have to keep in mind that the tools you will need for cleaning would still prefer on your preference. But if you make sure that you at least have the above-mentioned tools at home, you can be assured that you're ready for any cleaning endeavor.
