My cleaning essentials!

When I started this blog I said that my content wasn’t just going to be about makeup and style. I wanted to post about my life too so that readers could get to know me on a more personal level. That’s why today I decided to write a post about what I think of as my essentials when cleaning my home.

1.Cleaning Caddy


I think this is probably one of my favourite cleaning essentials ever because it saves me so much time and energy. Before I had a caddy I was spending most of my day walking back and forth and up and down the stairs getting all my supplies in order to clean all the different rooms. Now I have a caddy I just carry all my supplies with me.

2.Bathroom Cleaner


I use this in my bathrooms. This product kills 99.9% which is why it is great for bathrooms because bathrooms are full of bacteria. I only use this on the sink,taps,shower and tub.



This is going to sound very strange but I LOVE BLEACH… I love the smell of it. I like to us bleach on the toilet bowlsand also on the tiles.

4.Window and Glass Cleaner


Since moving out of my parents house I have found a new obssession with finger print-less windows and mirrors. I absolutely hate seeing smudges on my bathroom mirrors so I use this product to clean them.

5.Kitchen Cleaner


To clean my kitchen appliances like the microwave and hob I use this kitchen spray. I also use it on the kitchen skink and toaster.

6.Anti-Bacterial Plus spray


I know it sounds silly but I like to use a different product on the kitchen counter and table tops. I picked this product because it kills 99.9% and it smells good.

7.Wood cleaner


The living room and corridor floors of my house are wood. So I use pledge wood floors and furniture cleaner. I just mix it with some hot water and clean the floors by hand. When I say by hand I mean I get down on my hand and knees and scrub away like cinderella. I tried mops but I prefer to clean the floor this way.

8.Floor Cleaner


Since all the rooms in my house aren’t wood I have to clean them with a different product. I use this to clean the bathroom floors and the kitchen floors. This product is meant to be direct to floor but I find this leaves my floors feeling a little sticky so I mix it in with some hot water and again scrub them like cinderella.

9.Furniture Polish


I used this on my furnitue and hand rails because I like to see them shiny. This is multi-surface so you can you use it anywhere.



Sponges are used everywhere in my house. I use them to scrub the floors, the toilet bowl, the sinks and also my sofa. I have a white leather sofa which gets quiet dirty because clothing dye stains it everytime anyone sits on it.

11.Microfibre Cloths


So I use different coloured cloths for different things in my house. I do this to stop something called cross contamination. At the end of each of my cleaning days I wash all of my cloths on a hot wash to rid of bacteria and so they are ready to be used the next time.

YELLOW– I use my yellow cloth in the kitchen for things like the counter and kitchen appliances.
PINK & GREEN– I use the pink cloth for the bathroom floors and I use the green for all the other floors.
BLUE– I use the blue cloth for windows and mirrors.
PURPLE-I use the purple for dusting and polishing.



I think the strangest thing in my cleaning caddy is a toothbrush. I mean yes they are usually used to clean but not normaly used to clean the house. I use them with a little bit of bleach to clean between the tiles.I also find them really good to remove the limescale that builds around the taps from the hard water.

13.Bin Bag


Everytime I clean before I start the first thing I do is I grab one of these and put it in my caddy. I do this because whenever I clean my house I always find something that needs to go in the bin. Sometimes its makeup wipes other times its an old top that I noticed is damaged. I also carry one around with me because of the bins in the bathrooms. This way I can just empty them into the bag rather than have to take it downstairs and empty it.

I know this post is a little different from what I have done before but I really hope you enjoyed it because I really enjoyed writting it. Let me know in the commets if this is a kind of post you would like to see more of and also comment on this post any cleaning tips you have for me.

    I actually love this! I’m 16 and I live with my Dad and Brother meaning that as well as the cooking, I have to do a lot of the cleaning as well. This post was so helpful! -Tash x
