If you could only have one cleaning product, and only one – what would it be and why? There are so many available that do the same things, or promise to revolutionise your cleaning routine etc… but I am interested in knowing what other mums go-to / must have cleaning products are!

  • Bleach I reckon, for that bright white clean and germ eradication

  • My product would be jif,it cleans every-thing from the bathroom to the kitchen,brilliant!

  • Bicarb and vinegar safe for the kids

  • I can tell you two things I would not use – 1 not at all. Kerosone. The fumes from it are terrible. It must be used in well ventilated space. It’s good for one thing only – removing mechanical grease or oil off parts, cement, work clothes prior to washing. 2. I would never use Ajax Spray & Wipe on the outside surface of a refrigerator again. If your house is connected to grey water, the only thing that gets the tap water stains off is CLR, with a lightly abrasive mitt – wearing rubber gloves. Even professional cleaners reckon it is the only one that removes it completely. I have to have good ventilation to use white vinegar and carb soda which can be used on most things. If you are painting the inside of your house, an open container of carb soda or some on a saucer will reduce the smell of the paint. (It also works in office areas – that’s how I found out about it).

  • Great! some really good comments on this!

  • Vinegar and Bicarb soda are my go to products around the house. I don’t really like using chemicals but, I also use Aldi mould killer in the showers once a month, this gives the shower a really good mould prevention treatment and means that I don’t ever need to do any hard scrubbing in there.

  • I like e-cloths! like cheap version of enjo
    otherwise love bleech

  • Definately the enjo clothes – they have saved me so much money in the long run by not needing cleaning chemicals

  • Magic erasers are amazing to have!

  • def all purpose cleaner spray, like spray and wipe. or disinfectant.

  • Definitely vinegar

  • Dishwashing liquid….can use it for almost anything of you really have to

  • Baking soda, it cleans in so many ways and is safe dor the environment and the home sewerage treatment systems.

  • Eucalyptus oil… anything and everything!

  • Other than using baby wipes for little spot cleans on our hard wood floors – haha, but seriously I do… I’d use Earth Choice – Multi Purpose spray on so many things! It cleans properly (e.g. grease, grime caked on things…), it smells nice, and it’s kinda green – I feel ok about using it on things my family are around.
