Spray-on window cleaners can be used for glass, mirrors, refrigerator shelves, kitchen counters, sink fixtures, forefronts of appliances and others. Degreasers are “multifunctional detergents” that can remove greasy soil, oily dust and stubborn dirt. Bathroom and tile cleaning agents fight with mildew, soap film, mineral deposits, greasy soil; moreover they sanitize surfaces. As for cleaning tools, the list of must-haves can be rather long. But if to talk about the basic things, then you should start with a cleaning caddy (container for keeping all the tools and supplies well-organized), brushes (to remove mold, grime and dirt), brooms, dusters, mops, squeegees, microfiber cloths, sponges, small towels and some others. However this list is not complete without vacuum cleaners. This type of household appliances reduces dust mites and beetles in carpets, besides it eliminates the need to sweep, what is, in fact, more laborious. Models with HEPA filters are recommended for asthmatics or allergies' suffers, because they trap dust particles and allergens.

The main thing about cleaning is to stay focussed, especially during spring clean-up. If you have too many things to do, then it is recommended to write a list of tasks and follow it. If you are limited in time, then it is important to concentrate on those areas, which are seen the most, like living room or kitchen.
