Twenty Essential Things To Keep In Your Cleaning Kit

The Ultimate List Of Cleaning Kit Products.


Have you ever wondered which cleaning products and tools a professional cleaner carries in their cleaning kit?

Now is your chance to take a peek into the mysterious world of the professional cleaning kit to see what I use to tackle the toughest jobs around!

I like to keep things simple when it comes to cleaning, I don’t want a huge armoury of products and I don’t want to spend a fortune. I want to use the best products to tackle the toughest jobs in the shortest time!  I have narrowed the huge choice of cleaning product options down to twenty must have cleaning products which I couldn’t do without and created this list of my cleaning kit top 20!

I have over 20 years cleaning experience which also includes 11 years cleaning a sterile aseptic lab which was used to manufacture TPN feeds and Chemotherapy within a hospital pharmacy department.

I have also worked within commercial units as well as end of tenancy properties, post building work and domestic cleaning.

Within those projects, there really is not much I haven’t come across in the way of dirt!  And while cleaning those buildings I’ve tried hundreds of different cleaning products.

Some products are totally amazing and some are pretty horrendous, so, I’ve decided to share with you today my top twenty cleaning kit products!

Cleaning kit products and Tools

I use this scraper to get burnt off food from the oven, hob and baking dishes and trays, after spraying with the degreaser, this saves a whole load of scrubbing! For very stubborn areas use the scraper wet and of course a non-scratch scrubby for the rest of the oven!

Other  essential cleaning kit tools are;

  • 1-inch scraper for scraping any dried on food from floors and work surfaces before cleaning
  • Non-scratch scrubbers for, showers, toilets, kitchen sinks and any other scratchable surfaces which need a good scrub.
  • Stainless steel scrubbers for pans
  • Toothbrushes for hard to reach areas
  • Safety pins for cleaning screw heads
  • Paintbrush for dusting hard to reach areas
  • Feather duster for speed dusting round ornaments, baseboards, blinds, and door frames.
  • Whisk brush for carpet edges and for the carpet between small pieces of furniture.
  • Green scrubbers for cleaning the toilet bowl.
  • Glass Cloths
  • Microfibre cloths  (red for bathrooms blue for elsewhere)
  •  Pedal bin bags  to gather rubbish as you clean
  • EMop  for hardwood floors
