5 Cleaners Every Household Needs

’Tis the season for shopping, eating and family get-togethers -- oh, and don’t forget about all the pre-guest cleaning! Sure, the holidays are a time to eat, drink and be merry, but someone has to scrub the halls before they’re decked. It can be overwhelming when prepping for the holiday season, but you don’t have to go it alone -- get equipped with these five products that are sure to clean house.

All-Purpose Erasers

They’re called magic for a reason – Mr. Clean Extra Power Magic Erasers never cease to amaze when it comes to removing stains, grime and scuffs from almost any surface.  A great place to use them: the bathroom. With minimum elbow grease, the erasers can scrub away shower grout and buildup from your tub floor. 

Double-Duty Broom

Make a clean sweep over all your floors -- even swipe up some engrained dirt from area rugs -- before vacuuming. The Bissell Arrgh Pet Hair Broom is perfect for catching strands from our furry friends. Plus, it’s not too shabby at grabbing our own fallen stray tresses and everyday messes either.

Steam Mop

Take your floor cleaning to the next level, with a handheld mop built with a steam-packed punch. The Swiffer Bissell Steamboost gives you a lightweight way to mop, leaving your floor sparkling and eliminates the grunt work.

Oven Cleaner

All that at-home holiday cooking sure is delicious, but the prep shouldn’t start with basting the turkey -- it should start with cleaning your oven!  Months of buildup can hold your oven back from cooking to the best of its ability. Give Cadie Degreasing Oven Cleaning Wipes a try: The orange-oil solvent promises to cut through thick grease in just a few swipes.

Fabric Refreshers

Setting up the guest room for the holidays, means pulling out bedding and towels that may have not been used since last year’s visit. Giving these fabrics -- as well as attic-kept holiday-themed pillows and throws -- a few quick spritzes of fabric refresher can eliminate the stale, stored-away odor. Try Febreze’s Cranberry Cider spray -- it won’t just smell fresh, but also festive!
