When you think of keeping your house in order, these must have cleaning supplies should be top on your list! We have two messy dogs, a toddler, and a Florida home that just gets messy. Keeping my home clean and safe is important to my family, but it should also be important to you. We prefer using products that aren’t so harsh and loaded with chemicals, but that also still clean and sanitize well. These are our must haves that keep our house and family safe while staying green. “You don’t have to compromise on green to be clean!”
If you want to live a balanced and natural lifestyle, it helps to have a clean home! Clorox created a line of products that cleans powerfully without the harsh chemical smell or residue. The entire Green Works line is available at Target, and here is a handy list to get you started on upgrading your cleaning routine.
I stopped by Target and picked up Green Works All Purpose Cleaner, Cleaning Wipes, Dishwashing Liquid, and Laundry Detergent. So, let’s get started on your cleaning checklist. There is a 3/$8 deal in this week’s circular. It’s the perfect sale to stock up.
Must Have Cleaning Supplies
Cloth wipes and cleaning rags. We hate wasting money on paper towels when cloth is so much better for the environment and cost effective. You can buy a package in the store or grab some flannel and cut out your own. A simple stitch on the edge keeps them from unraveling and makes them perfect for washing and using again.
Natural cleaning products. All natural and green cleaning products will help you to keep your home safe while sanitizing as needed. These are the kinds of products you can feel good about using since you know they aren’t full of chemicals that could hurt yourself or your children. Specifically, the Green Works line products are made with plant- and mineral-based cleaning ingredients. They come from biodegradable ingredients that are naturally derived, are not tested on animals, and are acknowledged by the EPS’ Design for the Environment program.
Green Works All Purpose Cleaner. The all purpose spray tackles grease, grime, and dirt on surfaces in your kitchen and bathroom. It’s mild enough to use around pets and children which is VERY important.
Use this cleaner to freshen up your bathroom, your kitchen counters, clean stainless steel appliances, and more.
Cleaning Wipes. The compostable cleaning wipes are my FAVORITE way to easily wipe away toddler messes. They also boast an advanced grease fighting formula with a fresh scent.
They have no harsh chemical residue so they are safe on most non-wood surfaces.
Dishwashing Liquid. The original dishwashing liquid is a MUST have. It is made with 98% naturally derived ingredients. It is dermatologist-tested so it is gentle on your hands.
Laundry Detergent. We are picky with what we use to wash our cleans since we need something that is safe for our sensitve skin. This concentrated cleanser is perfect since it is not harsh on our clothing or our bodies. You can use this in standard or HE machines for fresh and clean clothing and linens.
Other cleaning items you might need in your arsenal?
A steam mop. This is an investment that you won’t regret having in your home. Mopping floors the old fashioned way is not only tough on your back, but it can often leave you feeling like they just aren’t quite as clean as you would hope. A steam mop allows you to use straight water and safely sanitizes by using heat. There are multiple brands out there, but a steam mop is an investment everyone with laminate or hard wood must have.
Bagless vacuum. When you think about your vacuum cleaner, make sure you are going with bagless variety that will save money as well as cut back on allergy issues. Most bagless vacuums come with several filters to keep the air as clean as possible. If you have pets in the home, or someone in your family has allergies this is important to keep things clean and less frustrating for those with allergies.
These must have cleaning supplies are easy to keep on hand and will make your chores list easier to tackle. Keeping things organized and using great products to kill germs, clean and keep your family safe is easy when you follow these tips and use these products. A healthy home starts with a great cleaning routine.
