What do professional house cleaners prefer to use?
There are several household cleaning products that many professional house cleaners wouldn’t dream of being without. These include:
An all-purpose antibacterial cleaner that can be used on multiple surfaces around the home.
Microfibre cloths because their small fibres are better at cleaning dust and dirt off many different surfaces. They’re also more eco-friendly than using paper towels.
A special tub and tile cleaner that clings to surfaces such as the tiles in the shower.
A glass cleaner for windows and mirrors.
Rubber gloves for protecting your hands while cleaning.
