14 Essential Cleaning Supplies for Spring

1 year ago 51

At first glance, your house looks great: You've disinfected, redecorated and organized; you've even set up your home office. But when was the last time you did a solid deep clean?

Seasonal cleaning -- which typically requires a healthy deep cleaning -- is more than just putting away laundry, clearing all the clutter, running a vacuum or dusting your shelves with a microfiber cloth. It often requires scrubbing places you wouldn't normally think about and using stain-fighting products and other hardworking cleaning supplies.

While a deep cleaning -- or, if you're doing it this time of year, a good old-fashioned spring cleaning -- is no small feat, now's a prime time for an intensive clean of your kitchen, bathroom, windows and everywhere in between. After all, you're spending more time at home than ever before, which means there's probably more of a mess in your lived-in spaces than you'd usually find. And there are only so many shows to stream and exercises to do in your downtime.

From a vacuum on wheels that'll tackle any dust bunnies and a scrub brush on steroids to a cleaning product that gets away the grime, these are the deep clean tools you'll need as you go through your spring cleaning checklist to make your home stain-free and sparkling from the inside out.

Washing Machine Cleaner with Odor Blasters


An important part of a thorough cleaning is cleaning the things that keep your things clean. (Got that?) A great example is your washing machine -- it should be de-gunked regularly. OxiClean Washing Machine Cleaner with Odor Blasters helps remove residue or soap scum that might be making your clothes smell a little funky. Once a month, toss an OxiClean pouch into the washing machine, run a cycle with warm water and then wipe it down with a soft towel to keep it looking and smelling fresh.


CLR Calcium Lime & Rust Remover


A nearly zero-effort way to deep clean is removing calcium deposits and rust that have built up over time.

So basically anything that looks gross.
