Our Favorite Cleaning Essentials

We’re sharing our favorite cleaning essentials today!

This is probably going to sound weird, but I love everything about cleaning.

Especially, when I’m in the zone and listening to a good podcast.

I love exploring new products and finding fresh ways to tweak our current cleaning routine to help make the week more manageable.

Truthfully, some of my best ideas have come while dusting surfaces and scrubbing toilets.

And since we all take a deep dive into spring cleaning this time of year, I thought I’d share our favorite cleaning essentials.

These products not only help us keep our home clean for the spring season, but they also help us keep our home in tip-top shape throughout the year.

Favorite Cleaning Essentials: Vacuums and Mops

Vacuum and Mop Essentials on Amazon-The Crowned Goat
  • Dust Buster (have and love)
  • Dyson v15 Detect Cordless Vacuum Cleaner (I couldn’t find an Amazon link for the v15 Detect Extra we use but wanted to share this similar link so you could see the attachments. Ours came with 10 attachements and my only regret is not getting one sooner. Also, we use this exact docking station to keep everything organized.)
  • Little Green Machine (currently waiting for this to go on sale again, muddy paws are no joke)
  • Steam Mop (have and love. The only drawback is that it has a cord)

For Pets…

    1. I totally agree, Heidi! I’m always shocked at how well it works on so many different surfaces. Hope you’re having the best week, CoCo

  2. Hey there! I wish I was like you and actually enjoyed cleaning! You know I love an organized and tidy home, but I only clean because I have to, and not because I want to, lol!! However, after I discovered Norwex clothes, cleaning got a lot easier! Happy day! Donna

    1. I’ve heard so many good things about the Norwex cloths, Donna, they sound amazing. I definitely need to look into those. Thanks so much for the suggestion. Hugs, CoCo PS: If you ever find a podcast you love I swear it makes your cleaning time go by so fast! Hugs, CoCo

    2. I’m a huge fan of Bar Keepers friend. It is a great product for so many things.

      I use microfiber clothes too. They’re tge best when cleaning.

  3. I listen to podcasts while I clean too! Love all of your great cleaning recommendations. I’m excited to give some of them a try!

    1. That’s so exciting, Missy! I’m totally with you on the cleaning/podcasting front. Sometimes I’ll get so involved in one I’ll keep finding things to clean. Hope you have the best week. Hugs, CoCo

  4. These products look great. I bought some of the Pink Stuff a while back and completely forgot about it until seeing this post. I’ll have to try it out!

  5. Can I tell you how much use our Bissell little green machine gets? The last one I purchased lasted for more than 10 years. We recently had to buy a new one. I don’t think we could survive without it. (one word: dogs). Also, I love that you included micro-fiber cloths. Those are also on heavy rotation in our home. Thank you for sharing your favorite cleaning essentials with us!
