Top 8 Cleaning Tools
Cleaning tools are things that are quite unappreciated, they are so useful, yet we seldom pay any attention to them in our day to day life.
“Cleanliness is next to godliness” , this adage can only come true if we have the correct tools (Cleaning Tools). With this in mind, we would like to suggest 8 cleaning tools that you just have to buy for your home.
Here are the Must Have Cleaning Tools:
The first and most essential tool that you should have in your home for cleaning purposes is a SPONGE. There are various types of sponges and their uses vary.

Another must have is a Squeegee. This versatile tool is generally used for window cleaning, but this inexpensive tool can also be used for more than just your windows.
Here is a list of four uses for your Squeegee other than your windows :
1. Glass Shower Doors
A squeegee can get rid of water spots, limescale and soap scum that can accumulate on shower doors.
Wash your dirty chalkboard with a solution of one part vinegar and 5 parts of water and then wipe off with your squeegee to get a new-looking chalkboard.
3. Spray Bottle
Another tool that will come handy while cleaning your home is a Spray Bottle. Spray bottles can be filled with water or with any home-made cleanser to get rid of stains and dirt.
You can also try making your own spray bottle at home. Click here to know more.
This is obvious. If you have any hard surfaces like wood, tile, cork, and linoleum, you will need a broom to get them clean. Dustpans help with the process, and of course are crucial for quickly cleaning up any spills.
5. Scrub Brush
A sponge or cloth isn’t always going to work, so keep a bristle scrub brush on hand to use on tough stains. These scrub brushes are easily available in departmental stores in India, or you can buy them online.
When you need something a little more detailed than a scrub brush, a toothbrush is a great option. Disinfect some old toothbrushes and put them to work on grout, sink rims and all the other nooks and crannies in your house.
7. Vacuum Cleaner
This is one versatile tool that can make cleaning not just easy but also fun. People generally use vacuum cleaners to clean floors and upholstery, but do you know some lesser known vacuum cleaner tricks. Let me tell you how you can deodorize your smelly cushions, make your house smell fresh and much more.
Here are some offbeat Vacuum Cleaner Tricks :
1. Make your house smell fresh
Dip a cotton ball in your favorite essential oil or perfume and drop it into your vacuum cleaner bag. As you vacuum, the scent will gradually release and freshen up the air.
2. Deodorize your smelly cushions
Sprinkle some baking powder on the spot that you’re trying to clean and let it sit for about 30 minutes. Vacuum it away and say goodbye to dust and foul smell
8. Tilex Tile & Grout Pen
This cleaning tool is really handful as this solves one the most basic problems faced by people in their day to day life. It can help in cleaning the tile grout (spaces between tiles) either on floor or on the walls of a house.
