7 Cleaning Essentials Every Young Professional Needs to Have

At Minch’s professional cleaning company in Bucks County, we know firsthand just how busy young working men and women are—and we know just how relaxing it can be to come home to a clean and fresh home. Unfortunately, if you’re just getting started in your career, you’re probably making do with roommates or a small studio apartment—and not a ton of room for a full cleaning supply kit. Save space and stress by limiting your cleaning cabinet to these seven essentials!

All-purpose cleaner. The name says it all—an all-purpose cleaner is safe to use on almost every surface in your home. From bathroom tiles to kitchen countertops, an all-purpose cleaner is invaluable when cleaning room-to-room and saving space!

Glass cleaner. All-purpose cleaners are great for everything—except glass and mirrors. All-purpose cleaners often leave a streaky residue when used on windows and mirrors, so investing in a bottle of glass cleaner is worth the space it takes up.

A small bottle of bleach. When you need to tackle a tough cleaning job, bleach is a no-nonsense germ-killing menace. However, thanks to its abrasive nature, you should avoid using bleach except as a last resort, and you should heavily dilute it with water before use. Opt for a small bottle of bleach to save space and use it sparingly.

A pair of sturdy rubber gloves. Don’t ruin your nails scrubbing that bathroom tile! Pick up a strong and sturdy pair of rubber gloves and add them to your kit.

An old toothbrush. Toothbrushes are essential for oral health—but did you know they also make great cleaning tools? From scrubbing grout to cleaning out the cupholders in your car, an old toothbrush is an invaluable cleaning tool.

A dual-sided sponge. Some cleaning jobs need a soft touch of a sponge while others require the tough bristles of a scrubbers. Save space by opting for a dual-sided sponge that can handle both tasks!

A microfiber cloth. Dusting is an important cleaning task—especially when allergy season rolls around! Save space by skipping the feather duster and picking up a microfiber cloth. Microfiber is just as good at picking up dust and pollen and is more affordable and storage-friendly.

5 Ways to Clean Up After Your Dog

Your four-legged friend is an important member of your family. Unfortunately, you shouldn’t bank on Fido learning to clean up after himself any time soon. Our cleaning company in Bucks County knows firsthand how messy man’s best friend can be. So, use these five cleaning strategies to enjoy a less messy home and more time spent with your furry family member!

For a sofa that’s covered in fur. Instead of running your hand vacuum over and over the fur, grab a pair of rubber gloves and dampen them with warm water. Run your hand over the sofa and watch as all the fur collects!

For a pet’s bed that smells like wet dog. The key to keeping your pet’s bed from developing an odor is to regularly wash it. Pet beds can quickly accumulate bacteria if left untreated, so try to run Spot’s bed through the washing machine at least once a week.

For a food bowl that’s covered in leftovers. If you feed your dog wet food, you’ve probably noticed a smelly and sticky remnant hangs around in the bowl after every meal. Instead of waiting for the bowl to get grimy, gently wash it with warm water after every meal to prevent buildup.

For a floor that’s looking a little furry. Does your dog shed on the floor? Resist the temptation to grab a broom—sweeping can reintroduce hair and dander into the air! Instead, pick up the Swiffer or microfiber cloth to trap pet residue once and for all.

For a carpet accident. If your pet has an accident on the carpet, don’t rub the stain—this will drive the urine deeper into the carpet, making it more difficult to remove. Instead, blot the spot with a towel soaked in a mixture of 50% water and 50% white vinegar for a natural and more effective stain remover.
