The Only Cleaning Products You Need & Their Natural Alternatives

Cleaning and organizing is much easier when you have fewer things, I always say. The same goes for your cleaning products: keep them organized and to a minimum.

 

Aside from laundry detergent, dishwashing liquid, and hand & dish soap, what products are really necessary for cleaning?

  1. Bleach: to disinfect. Use on any surface that needs disinfectant.

  3. Barkeeper’s friend/Comet/Ajax: to remove stubborn stains on surfaces, disinfect, or to remove mildew.
  4. Carpet stain remover: to remove stains on carpets, rugs, and upholstery.
  5. Clothing stain remover: to remove stains on clothing.
  6. Goo Gone: to remove stubborn, sticky residue.

The Caddy/Basket

Finally, wrangling up your cleaning products into one basket helps keep them organized and ready to carry from room to room when it’s time to clean. I found this basket in the dollar section at Target!

 


 

If you’re someone who swears by using chemical products or someone who prefers all natural products, less is always more!

 

Happy Spring Cleaning!
