Supplies for Maintenance Cleaning


Today I am wrapping up the three types of cleaning.  We have already covered seasonal cleaning and deep cleaning.  In my last blog I talked about maintenance cleaning and how to develop a plan.  We finish up maintenance today by talking about the supplies you will need.

You already know that I am a fan of Clorox or Lysol wipes (whichever is on sale).  Let me explain why.

They are already moistened, so all it requires is grabbing one from the container and it’s ready to go.  I am big on saving time.   In fact, sometimes I will sacrifice price in order to squeeze some extra minutes out of my day.

They wipe up grease, globs of toothpaste, sticky syrup…you name it.  Being able to use the same product in the kitchen or bathroom is an instant hit for me.

I also like the size of the wipes because I can usually get away with using one for the job I need done.  And with both sides, it goes even further.

Of course, there are other supplies that are great for maintenance cleaning.  If you want to save money, you can opt for microfiber cloths.

What’s great about these is the ability to wash them.  And all you have to do is run them through some water if you want to wipe something down.

But you can also use them dry.  They are great at picking up dust.

Microfiber cloths can be used on windows, countertops and even the floor.  There is something wonderful about versatility.

Of course, some people like to use all-purpose cleaners.  Then you would need some soft rags and disposable/latex gloves.

Other supplies that you might need for maintenance cleaning could include a feather duster, vacuum cleaner or broom.  What you need depends on what you do for maintenance cleaning.
