10 Cleaning Favorites

Cleaning your body, face, home and more. Below are my Top 10 favorite cleaning must-haves.

1. Bar Keepers Friend

When we bought our house, the previous owners left a few things behind and Bar Keepers Friend was one of them. Since then, I have considered it one of my must-have items when cleaning the house. I mainly use it in the kitchen on our glasstop stove and on the bottom of pots and pans. Oh yes, it removes those dirty grimy black spots from the bottom of pans instantly.

Visit Bar Keepers Friend for more information and stay tuned for an upcoming giveaway of a Bar Keepers Friend gift basket!

2. Swiffer Sweeper Vac

I use my Swiffer SweeperVac at least 3 times a day. See for yourself. The fact that I can charge it is wonderful. Anything I can do to save the batteries for my portable computer mouse (ugh, it’s a battery hog!).

3. Swiffer Wet Jet Mop

Like my Swiffer SweeperVac, I use this product constantly. As a matter of fact, they sit side by side next to my buffet and dishwasher. With a dual-nozzle sprayer and a strong-grip pole, this all-in-one cleaning system is designed to break up and dissolve tough messes smarter than a mop and bucket. Its uniquely designed solution penetrates layers of dirt and grime and traps and locks it deep into the WetJet pad. Plus, its unique scrubby strip breaks apart tough dried-on spots and messes.

4. Method Dish Soap

I love Method products so much, I’m going to have to break it down in 3 parts. The first being their dish soap. I’ve written previously about my love for this dish soap, see here. Not only does it smell good, it’s non toxic, biodegradable and pretty safe for the environment.

5. Method All-Purpose Cleaner

Another Method favorite, I have this cleaner in the Ginger Yuzu scent. The scent is little spicy-and-sweet from the ginger, and a little citrus-y from the yuzu. Rumor has it there’s even some lemongrass and coconut thrown in there for good measure. Made up of naturally derived, non-toxic ingredients, this all-purpose cleaner is sure to be a favorite in your house.

See Method All-Purpose Cleaner.

6. Method Body Wash

This is probably my absolute favorite Method product. This refresh mint body wash is a lively blend of spearmint, peppermint, bergamot + floral tea. Oh yes. It doesn’t get any better than that. Not to mention, a little drop of this body wash goes a long way. I found this on sale at Target and have been hooked ever since. You’ll love it, promise.

7. Clorox Disinfecting Wipes

Use these in the kitchen, in the bathroom, in your bedrooms… they come in handy wherever you are. Pre-moistened disinfecting wipes that kill 99.9% of germs including viruses that cause colds and flu.

Clorox Disinfecting Wipes are specially formulated to be safe on common wood surfaces like tables, cabinets, and floors.

8. Tom’s of Maine Toothpaste

I love pretty much all of the Tom’s of Maine products but there is just something about the toothpaste that finds me grinning from ear to ear. (Try the cinnamon clove toothpaste for a yummy, spicy experience).

9. St. Ives Invigorating Apricot Scrub

From America’s #1 Scrub brand, this award-winning Apricot Scrub deep cleans, instantly leaving skin smooth and glowing.

Oil-free Non-irritating dermatologist-tested 100% natural exfoliants 100% natural extracts Formulated without parabens and phthalates Made without animal ingredients Not tested on animals

10. Delta Faucet featuring Touch2o Technology

This here is the Addison Faucet from Delta featuring the Touch2o Technology. This faucet is beautiful and you see, it’s in my kitchen. I can’t recommend this faucet enough and here are a few reasons why:

– The height of the faucet easily allows you to wash dishes without clanking them against the sink. It gives you a lot of room.

– The Touch2o Technology is just awesome in itself. Touch the spout, handle or anywhere on the faucet and the water will turn on. This allows for a germ-free cleanup and hardly any mess.

– 3 spray settings. When going from my old faucet to the new one, the water pressure was like night and day. It was amazing how easily the water flowed from the new faucet using the different settings.

….and there you have it. Our Top 10 Cleaning Favorites. Do you own any of these?

    Great Products, I have used St Ives for years and love their scubs.

    • Jessica

      I have too Mel! I like how the packaging has evolved over time too. I tell you what, if I don’t use it for a week or so, I start breaking out like a teenager. It’s definitely something I will probably use for a long time :)

    I don’t use the Clorox wipes, but we go through a LOT of Clorox Clean-Up spray! Great stuff.
