Keeping a home clean is an uphill battle. There can be no success without the right weapons to fight this war on grime. Conquer the dirt in your home with this list of the five most crucial cleaners every home needs.


When it comes to cleaning, there is no substitute for germ-free. Using disinfectants such as Lysol, Pine-Sol, Clorox, Dettol, Fantastik, or another brand of cleaner will kill the germs that linger on surfaces in multiple places around the home. Use these cleaners on commonly used areas such as tables, door knobs, light switches, remotes, chargers, and any other high-traffic germ area. You can be assured that high quality disinfectants are in use to ensure that your home is germ free by hiring a professional cleaning crew like Golden Shine to clean your home. These services will clean areas of your home such as carpets, windows, or entire house cleaning among other services.

All Purpose/Glass Cleaners

It is important to have a general cleaning agent for windows, dusting, and removing things such as fingerprints and smudges from walls. Windex, Mr. Clean, Mr. Muscle, Lysol, or Freshine all produce great general cleaning products. These cleaners serve multiple purposes. They not only clean surfaces, but they reduce the amount of dust in the room. They are also frequently used to freshen the fabrics and the air in the room.

Spot and Stain Removers

Spots and stains that have had time to set are hard to remove. Using a cleaner such as Mr. Clean magic erasers will often remove them. Magic Erasers are useful in a number of different situations from tennis shoes to soap scum. There are a number of liquid and powder general duty cleaners such as Comet, Borax, and Oxi-Clean, Resolve, and Formula 409. There is a large assortment of stain removers for the cleaning of stained laundry such as Boost, Spray ‘n’ Wash, Yellow Out, Zout, and Shout. Using these stain and spot removers will keep your home and belongings looking brand new.

Bathroom Disinfectant/Cleaners

Perhaps the busiest and most germ filled of the rooms in the house, the bathroom needs the assistance of a good disinfecting cleaner. Examples of the brands of cleaners that contain the proper ingredients to kill bathroom germs are The Works, Clorox, Comet, Lysol, Scrubbing Bubbles, Tilex, Zep, and Scrub Free. Some of these cleaners are specifically formulated for the removal of specific problems such as rust or lime scale. These cleaners are highly corrosive and they make short work of cleaning tubs, showers, sinks, and toilets. Reading a manufacturer’s instructions are essential when working with these toxic chemical cleaners.

Industrial Cleaners

For the heavy duty cleaning of such things as stoves and ovens, a heavier duty specific cleaner may be necessary. Oven cleaners are available from makers such as Easy-Off, Oven Plus, Zep, Magic, Bartenders Friend, Home Select, Mr. Muscle, and Carbona. Their specific chemical composition makes cleaning of greasy areas a breeze. This can include such things as grill trays, drip pans, hot plates, and any other dirty greasy application. This may also involve the neglected greasy areas behind, under, and around kitchen appliances such as the stove and refrigerator that don’t get moved regularly.

Home cleaning is a somewhat daunting, but a necessary task that everyone must endure at some point in their lives. Having a great arsenal of cleaners and cleaning agents at your disposal will help to make the task seem like a walk in the park. With the help of these cleaners for disinfecting, general cleaning, spot and stain removal, bathroom disinfecting, and cleaning up heavily greased areas, anyone can get their home sparkling clean from the ceiling to the floor.
