Here we are almost halfway through the year. Time flies, doesn’t it? Except for this year, we’re all in for quite a mess. Yes, pun intended as well. Whatever the usual that everyone is used to, is now a thing of the past. In fact, you don’t have to be a germaphobe nowadays to want EVERYTHING to be clean. While washing our hands, repetitively should have always been expected; cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing is more than welcome. Especially in our household, given that I have two little ones, and one of them is a newborn. If you don’t have kids, here’s a clue … everything lands in their mouth. Right about now, your keys, even that cellphone looks quite about tasty that my toddler would want to give it a little lick. Also, you don’t have to have kids to want to clean your home.
Now that you get my point, here’s the other situation that needs addressing. It is virtually impossible to clean an entire room with a single cleaning product. Still, individual rooms have individual needs. And since most of us have neither the time nor the inclination to clean our homes every single day thoroughly, it is a good idea to know which cleaning product is most useful for each room of the house.
For a cleaner fresher home, try following these tips daily.
The kitchen is frequently the most used room in the house. It is also a haven for germs. Here is where you store and prepare uncooked meats, throw away scraps of food, and drop organic matter on the floor, all feeding the bacteria that are always trying to make your home theirs. The most versatile cleaning product you can have on hand in the kitchen are Lemi Shine Auto Dish Detergent and Lemi Shine Dish Detergent Booster for non-toxic cleaning.
Lemi Shine Auto Dish Detergent
Lemi Shine Dish Detergent Booster
It’s about time to take the stress out of after-meal clean-up with Lemi Shine® Dishwashing Detergent. As a mom of boys, this is truly a time saver. I can grab the plates, pots, pans, and even sippy cups directly from the table and load it to our dishwasher without any worries. The powerful citric extracts clean like new with zero gross chemicals.
I am not sure if it’s just me, but I have always had issues with hard water spots and film build-up in our dishes and glassware. Which is why Lemi Shine Dish Detergent Booster is our #1 go-to for removing those hard water (magnesium and calcium) gunk and other gross messes and achieve that superior clean.
The bathroom is another haven for unwanted microbes. The humid environment encourages molds as well as bacteria to grow, creating a musty, unhealthy atmosphere. A quick fix is Mr. Clean’s Magic Eraser made with Durafoam. While it looks like a sponge, it cleans like magic.

This nearly all-purpose cleaner can remove your home’s toughest messes from the walls, bathtub, oven door, light switch, doors, and so much more! It’s everything all rolled into one. What I like the most about this product is that it is 2X more robust cleaning performance with Durafoam vs. the leading all-purpose bleach spray.
The Living Room
Living areas of your home, such as a den, living room, library, and office, generally suffer from dust more than any other filth problem. For these areas, Eureka NES510 Flash Corded Stick Vacuum Cleaner is more useful than any other single product. Use it from ceiling to floor, reaching tight spaces, stairs, and even car interiors!

The Eureka is ideal for hard-to-reach areas as it can also convert to a hand vacuum. This premium corded stick vacuum has LED Headlights, a large removable dust cup, and swivel steering for whole-home cleaning with powerful suction. Use this every few days (instead of waiting for the dust to settle over everything), and you will eliminate all kinds of allergens from your home.
Probably the most challenging room to pick a single representative cleaning product for is the bedroom. Still, if I had to pick just one, I would go with Scott’s Liquid Gold ONE CLEAN HOME®. Most people tend to sweat at night, which can mean a musty odor emanating from the bed. Not to mention the laundry hamper with a week (or more) worth of dirty clothing waiting to be washed. To keep the bedroom (and the rest of your home) fresh between more thorough cleanings, spray ONE CLEAN HOME®. It’s a new multi-surface cleaner formulated with non-toxic citric acid to clean all kinds of household messes and all types of hard surfaces. Wipe down countertops, sinks, cabinet doors, trash cans, and backsplashes daily. It only takes a minute but your immune system with thank you. A significant plus is that ONE CLEAN HOME® is safe for people, pets and the planet.

Scott’s Liquid Gold ONE CLEAN HOME®
I still disinfect our home with white vinegar and water. You still can, but so that you know Scott’s Liquid Gold ONE CLEAN HOME® is more effective than the vinegar and water concoction. Also, the fresh, clean grapefruit scent is made with essential oils, not artificial fragrances
So there you have a cleaning product for every room in the house. Of course, if you have an unusually large mess to tackle, you will need far more than the products listed here. But for daily touch-ups and maintenance, these items are genuinely indispensable.
