You know the saying — work smarter, not harder. All too often, cleaning tasks fall into the category of “back-breaking.” You know: hands-and-knees scrubbing of a mildewy shower, or intense vacuuming pet hair from the couch, or straining to get to those hard-to-reach places that aren’t part of your regular cleaning routine.
Even with our handy suggestions to guide you, sometimes getting down and dirty is necessary to make for a truly clean house.
There are, however, some helpful cleaning tools that can make your everyday life that much easier. Sure, you may still need to put some elbow grease into getting out that pesky wine stain a house guest left on the new area rug, but these beneficial tools may help make your regular cleaning routine much easier and more efficient.
Here are some of our favorite cleaning tools that just make life easier — what would you add to the list?
With an automated vacuum, the convenience and ease come from not needing to actually do the hard labor yourself. Instead, you can have it done for you, and all without a cord or connection. Roombas can really do the trick, vacuuming around the house for you and carefully avoiding denting furniture and other belongings thanks to advanced sensor technology.
These square pieces of white really live up to their “magic” name. Use a magic eraser tool, and you’ll be able to tackle those tough, annoying messes – no harsh cleaning solutions needed!
Here at SDCS we swear by these handy cloths. They’re totally reusable and more sustainable than paper towels, and more efficient, too. Thanks to their ridged, clingy design, microfiber cloths and products are able to pick up and trap dirt and dust that other types of material tend to leave behind.
Finish Dishwasher Cleaner
Sure, your dishwasher works hard to keep your glassware and utensils clean; but what about the dishwasher itself? Not only is it a pain to clean out the dishwasher by hand, but studies have shown harmful bacteria can build up from the dirt and grime left behind after a cycle. Skip the annoying scrubbing and washing of the dishwasher with this special cleaner, which you can pop in and put through a regular cycle for a spotless and healthy dishwasher.
Dreading tackling those hard-to-reach and crusted-on messes in the corners of your microwave? One product we’ve heard about is the helpful Angry Mama. This hilarious and helpful tool can help to eliminate unsavory messes with steam power. Just add vinegar, water, and a little lemon juice and power on for less than 10 minutes; the Angry Mama lets off some steam, getting those pesky stains softened up and easier to wipe down.
Bissel Spot Clean Pro
Pet owners, parents, and friends of careless party guests love this spot cleaner, which is easy to use and portable to boot. The machine sprays cleaning solution on to the carpet and quickly sucks it back up, for an easy clean that doesn’t dig the stain deeper into the carpet.
Putting a little elbow grease into some extra difficult scrubbing — we’ve all had to go there. The Sonic Scrubber is a powerful tool that can help make this process easier. Using special spinning technology, this tool helps loosen and clean dirt and grim — meaning a lot less scrubbing for you!
