11 Must Own Cleaning Products For Any Busy Mom – Stop Wasting Time And Money On Cleaning Products That Make Your Job Harder!
Over the years I have tried a lot of cleaning products, like a ridiculously embarrassing amount. What can I say I’m a sucker for a good product and anytime a new one comes out I’m always curious if that one performs better than anything I have ever tried. I can’t be the only one right? My quest for curiosity is a benefit to you because today I am sharing my absolute must-have cleaning products for busy mom’s like you.
1. Scrub Daddy Sponge
The Scrub Daddy is one product that I absolutely have to have backups of at all times. These sponges are amazing at scrubbing off stuck on food from pans, crockpots, instant pots, and glass cooktops without scratching. No more soaking for hours and hours when you have a burnt on mess.
2. Method Squirt + Mop Hard Floor Cleaner
I used to love my Swiffer for quick and easy mop jobs but the replacement cleaning pads got expensive quick. I found the Method Squirt + Mop Hard Floor Cleaner a few months ago and it’s been love ever since. I just add a microfiber cloth to the end of my Swiffer, squirt a little of this product and go.
3. Clorox ToiletWand Disposable Toilet Cleaning System
In the past, I have tried to love the typical toilet brush but I just can’t. No matter what I do they always seem to get gross quick and I end up replacing them frequently. The Clorox Toiletwand uses disposable cleaning pads so that way you are never left with a nasty toilet brush. A few other perks? Not only does it look nicer sitting out than a typical toilet brush but the wand comes with a caddy that opens up so that you can store your unused refills.
4. Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Kitchen Basics Set
I don’t know what it is about Mrs. Meyer’s cleaning products but they always make me want to clean. They work well, smell amazing and their seasonal scents get me every time. Anything that makes cleaning more enjoyable is a plus for me.
5. Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Vinegar Gel Cleaner
I seriously don’t know how I lived before the Mrs. Meyer’s vinegar gel cleaner. When this is combined with the baking soda cream cleanser magic happens. It’s great for kitchen sinks, crockpots, instant pots, glass cooktops, bathtubs and more. It’s also amazing on stains and will take out almost anything.
6. Best Microfiber Cleaning Cloth, Pack of 50
These microfiber cloths are good for cleaning everything but my favorite way to use them is with my Swiffer. Slap one of these on to the bottom of your Swiffer, pair it with a floor cleaner and you are good to go. Quick, effective, reusable and cheap!
7. Method Heavy Duty Degreaser for Kitchen Appliances
This Method heavy duty degreaser is a MUST HAVE! This product works way better on stovetops and microwaves than any other multipurpose cleaner I’ve tried. You will never have a nasty, greasy burner drip pan again, trust me.
8. Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Cream Cleaner, Lemon Verbena, 12 oz
The Mrs. Meyer’s baking soda cream cleaner works excellently as a stand-alone product and even better when paired with this vinegar gel cleaner. It will take out almost any stain in kitchen and bathroom. I personally love using it in the bathtubs and to clean my stainless steel sink. It has never looked better.
9. Simple Green All-Purpose Concentrated Cleaner
This Simple Green cleaner is my go-to for cleaning walls and baseboards. I don’t know about you but my kids love touching the walls with their dirty hands. Between food, dirt, dust and the occasional crayon marks, it works great. If you happen to have soot marks on your walls from a fireplace or candles it works like a charm on those too.
10. Drain Snake Hair Drain Clog Remover Cleaning Tool
Never buy Drano again with these drain snake hair clog remover tools. I’m warning you now, it’s not going to be pretty but this works better than any other product I’ve tried for removing clogs. The amount of gunk you will get out will surprise you.
11. Extra Durable Magic Cleaning Eraser Sponge
Everyone loves a good magic cleaning eraser sponge but how about a 50 pack? These could easily last you a year (or more) and are great for everything. I always grab these when I need to clean kids toys or outside equipment.
As busy moms, we don’t always have the time and money to try all the latest and greatest. Sometimes the simplest products can be the things that work the best. Seriously, a scrub daddy sponge might not look like the most exciting thing ever but when it saves you time (and your pan) you will be raving like the rest of us!
