March 20th marks the official first day of spring, but if you’re over the dreary winter blues, some spring cleaning is just the thing to get you refreshed and ready for warming temperatures. Welcome the season of new beginnings with these essential cleaning and organizing supplies that will give your home a fresh feel.
OXO Good Grips Long Reach Dusting System
A dusting kit is essential for knocking out those layers of dander, hair, and dirt that settle on everything. This set has three attachments, including a slim pocket for fans, and can extend up to eight feet for cleaning high corners or tucked away spaces.
A vacuum is your carpet’s first line of defense from dirt becoming ingrained in it. This vacuum doesn’t stop at carpets, it has another mode for bare floors and a detachable component for couches, stairs, and other areas that are harder to reach.
A mop provides a deeper sanitizing clean and can hit those tougher spots. This lightweight steamer mop loosens any grime stuck to the floor and allows you to scrub it away. Since it is compact, you can get into tighter spaces with ease.
Moving around your home to clean is a tiring physical task to begin with, so there’s no need to have your supplies out of reach too. Keep everything you need nearby with this lightweight caddy that has space for spray bottles, cloths, brushes, and disinfecting solutions.
A cardinal rule of cleaning and organization is that everything has a place, and sometimes it just so happens that that place is in the trash. This heavy duty stainless steel can is hands-free and can be purchased with odor absorbing pads. You can choose from three different colors and various sizes to suit your needs.
A hanging organizer is one of those items that "just make sense" because they can have highly specific purposes that allow you to group items, like accessories, kitchen items, or toys. This is a basic organizer, with three or six pockets, that’s ideal for storing everyday items, and at just over a foot wide, doesn’t take up too much space.
Even though our cardinal rule states that everything has a place, sometimes it’s hard to find a place to put everything. Creating storage spaces with bins or trunks can remedy that. These wooden cubes are attractive enough to double as decor, and have handles so they can be rearranged easily.
Shelves are the ultimate organizing item: they are tailored for the room, space, and purpose of the objects it will hold while maximizing space. For example, the bottom shelf of this bathroom unit is high enough to be just above the toilet, which means that sharing cabinet or countertop space is less of an issue.
After a long day, who doesn’t want to toss everything aside and go relax? As easy as it is to leave things scattered across the house, it can lead to clutter and disorganization. Instead, as soon as you walk in, put your coat, keys, and mail in one place where you can find it easily later on. This hall tree even has a bench so you can at least take a quick breather.
