Interestingly enough, I started working on this blog before coronavirus was really in full swing. I already love spring cleaning but now I’m taking extra steps to disinfect and clean my house – especially because we are spending so much more time at home in light of the pandemic.
If you are looking for something to do at home as you adhere to social distancing protocols, here are some cleaning products that will help you make every nook and cranny of your home sparkle and shine. (PS: this is in no way sponsored by Amazon or any of the products on this list. These are just humble recommendations from a woman who really LOVES to clean.)
In case you do want to try out these products, I’ve linked the title of each one to the product page on Amazon. Stay safe and healthy out there, y’all!
This is worth every penny of the $4 you’ll spend. We have a stainless steel sink – which OF COURSE, is not stainless. It removed every scuff and scratch and made our kitchen sink shine like it was brand-spanking new.
You’ve probably seen these all over social media lately, but let me tell you – they WORK. If you have cats or dogs and are tired of vacuuming your furniture only to find hair left over, this is the solution for you. The ChomChom roller uses static electricity to attract even the finest hair into the roller. Once you’re finished, you just open up the top of the roller and dump the hair into the trash. I love it so much better than a lint roller because you don’t have to worry about replacing the sticky paper.
Think about how much stuff you shove down your garbage disposal each month. The biodegradable packet cleans and deodorizes the entire garbage disposal, even the hidden areas like sidewalls, blades, and under the splashguard.
Y’all, if you have granite, marble, quartz or any other stone countertops, you NEED this. I typically clean my granite countertops with those disinfectant wipes, which end up leaving this weird residue on them. Now, after I disinfect, I’ll spray the countertops down with this cleaner/polish and not only does it take the residue off, it makes them so shiny! I am a true believer now.
Part of the responsibility of owning a home is learning how to take care of what’s in it. Since our home has engineered hardwood floors, I knew that there would be certain do’s and don’ts for cleaning them. I tried several products that left the floors looking dingy, but this stuff makes them so shiny I could honestly cry. This particular concentrate can be used on hardwood, laminate, LVT-Luxury Vinyl Tile, LVP-Luxury Vinyl Plank, tile and stone floors.
If you are a human being with hair then I highly suggest you buy this product. The millipede has 4,000 micro-hooks on it so when you stick it down your sink or shower drain, it hooks onto just about every single nasty, slimy hair down there and allows you to pull it out with ease. It pretty much eliminates the need for pouring chemicals down your drains and it’s oddly satisfying, not gonna lie.
I’ll be honest – I HATE cleaning the oven. Mainly because it’s just hard. I don’t like using the self cleaner and I hadn’t found a product that was safe enough and effective enough to actually clean the inside of the oven… until now. This fume-free oven cleaner blew me away. All you have to do is spray it in the inside of the oven, leave the door closed for two hours and then wipe it away. The inside of my oven and the racks look nearly brand new!
Just like a stainless steel sink isn’t truly stainless, the same goes for appliances. Stainless steel appliances show every fingerprint and water mark and they never seem to look clean, even after spraying them down with disinfectant. I love this cleaner because not only does it remove the stains, it also polishes it, making it more difficult to dirty it up again. My appliances look brand new and that makes me a happy Abbey.
I love that these dishwasher cleaner tablets are eco-friendly and safe for all dishwashers. I noticed that my dishes weren’t getting as clean as they used to and that the dishwasher was starting to smell kind of musty. I threw one of these tabs in when the dishwasher was empty and ran it through a normal cycle and not only did the inside look so much cleaner, it also smelled cleaner too!
It’s been a few years since we bought our washing machine and I will fully admit that I have not cleaned it yet. I honestly didn’t know that you could clean it! When I was looking into spring cleaning products, I stumbled across Affresh washing machine cleaner and thought I would give it a shot. This is great for general maintenance and preventing your washing machine from leaving any odor-causing residue on your clean clothes.
Well, that’s all she wrote, folks! How are you spending your social distancing time? Will you be participating in any spring cleaning this year? Take care of yourselves and let me know how you like these products if you end up ordering!
