And I do mean recommended. I’ve been asking for suggestions for this series of posts, and this is the question that got the most responses.
Not all of us are trained in the high art of cleaning. Or, again, we’re young enough to be just learning. Mix and match from this list to create a cleaning kit. The list runs from crunchy-green to conventional products.
Dawn [I prefer the Platinum but a lot of people swear by the original blue]
Dr. Bronner’s [castile soap in general]
Woods and Furniture
Olde English oil
Murphys oil soap
Solvents, Cleaners, and Fluids
Clorox bleach scrubbies
Vodka [don’t downplay vodka. I use it everywhere in the house.]
The Basics toilet cleaner
Toothpaste [for grout]
1 roll paper towels
Scrub pads [look like sponges but feel like Brillo, often green]
Scrubs and abrasives
Bar Keep’s Friend
Diy General Cleaner
In a spray bottle, mix a splash of vinegar, water, a squirt of dish soap, and 5 drops orange or lemon oil.
