10 Must-Have Products for Spring Cleaning
From the newest models to products you never knew you needed, your house will sparkle like never before with these spring cleaning must-haves.
Branch Basics Concentrate
There are a lot of chemical-based cleaning products out there, and thankfully many manufacturers have taken steps to become more eco-friendly. The newest kid on the block is Branch Basics. The brand uses a plant-based, non-toxic and clinically tested concentrate that can be diluted for various uses in one of their easy-to-refill bottles (laundry, foam hand wash, glass cleaner, all-purpose cleaner and bathroom cleaner). The more than 500 five-star online reviews prove the concept works! The best part? One bottle of the concentrate can be used to make 20+ formulas for upwards of $100 in savings. Talk about a spring cleaning steal! The Starter Kit + Oxygen Boost package ($69) will get you off to a great start.
Dyson V11 Torque Drive Vacuum
This brand new beauty comes from a company that needs no introduction. Dyson continues to lead the pack in the vacuum cleaner industry and the new V11 ($697) will definitely be a boon to your spring cleaning. Better than its predecessors, this vacuum offers suction power that automatically adjusts based on floor type, so you no longer have to switch back and forth manually. This also means that battery life is extended. The new LCD screen faces the user and indicates the remaining battery life, not just in bars as with previous models, but down to the second. Your floors and area rugs are about to be cleaner than they’ve ever been before.
Bamboo Fiber Cleaning Cloths
This 12-pack of cleaning cloths ($13) uses bamboo fiber to replace messy feather dusters, disposable dusting sheets and plastic-derived microfiber towels. From cleaning mirrors to cleaning out cabinets, drying, wiping and drying dishes, these 12 -inch x 12-inch bamboo cloths will pick up all the water, dust, hair and more without leaving behind lint or streaks.
“The view is better than ever,” says Ecovacs of the newest version of the Winbot ($450). The free-moving window cleaner cleans your glass using a four-stage process that squeegees and wipes in every direction. It easily identifies your window’s size and shape to create the proper path for optimal cleaning. Choose the automatic cleaning pattern or the deep cleaning mode, which goes back over the same areas more than once.
And if robots can clean your windows, they can bake bread, too!
An allergen-free home should be one of your goals when spring cleaning, especially if you have asthma sufferers in the house. Reach for the stars (or at least for the top shelf of your closet) with this nifty microfiber duster ($20). It features the latest split fiber technology to quickly grab dirt and the head is bendable up to 90 degrees.
Electric Spin Scrubber
Tacking that stubborn grout grime is sure to be on your spring cleaning list. Let the Homitt Electric Spin Scrubber ($50) take the need for elbow grease out of cleaning grout and many other deep-cleaning chores. The unique cordless design allows you to tackle bathroom and kitchen cleaning projects, including tubs, tile, toilets and sinks, with ease. And, this scrubber can run continuously up to 1.5 hours after only 3.5 hours of charging. This scrubber comes with a 21-inch extendable handle, allowing you to scrub and clean hard to reach corners without bending or climbing.
3-N-1 Cordless Stick Vacuum
“Cleaning up just got easier” according to Black + Decker. Their brand new 3-in-1 cordless stick vacuum ($99) has 65 percent more suction than before, and offers more than 30 minutes of run time. Along with the utter convenience of a cordless stick vacuum, this spring cleaning must-have features 180-degree swivel steering and a compact head that provides easy maneuverability in tight spaces. You can easily detach the hand vacuum to tackle smaller messes, or use it in combination with the pole to reach up high.
Shark Lift-Away Pro Steam Pocket Mop
The original Shark Steam Pocket Mop made a breeze of steam cleaning. Now Shark has introduced their smartest innovation yet. The 2-in-1 steam pocket mop ($128) features a removable hand-held steamer that’s ideal for spring cleaning your curtains and other above-floor cleaning tasks. The “intelli-mop” head features a touch-free pad with attach-and-release technology, so you never have to touch a dirty cleaning pad again! The steam blaster feature attacks tough, greasy stuck-on messes. The three levels of intelligent steam control work to easily dust, mop and scrub.
Molekule Air Purifier
When it comes to spring cleaning, you’ll need more than all-purpose cleaning sprays and a vacuum cleaner. To get the air in your home really clean, consider this new high-tech air purifier ($799) that will help get rid of the dust and bacteria that may have built up during the winter. Molekule uses a new process called PECO that rids the air of pollutants at the molecular level. This means allergens, mold, bacteria, viruses and chemicals aren’t just trapped in a filter, but totally removed from your household air. It can trap VOCs and viruses that are 1000x smaller than anything a HEPA filter can trap. How cool is that?!
Window Blind Cleaner/Duster Brush
Spring cleaning means tackling projects you leave behind on a regular basis. One of those is the daunting task of cleaning your blinds! This blinds duster ($13), made of high-quality polyethylene, is sturdy and is sure to cut down on your dusting time. The cleaner includes five microfiber cloths that pick up dust swiftly and easily. The design can clean tops and bottoms of two blinds at the same time.
