Let’s face it, no one really enjoys cleaning. The good news? We’ve got 4 handy tools and products to make cleaning your apartment quicker and easier.

Microfibre Cleaning Cloths

One of the best cleaners available is a microfibre cloth. These cloths pick up bacteria and germs with only water. They can be washed and reused for at least 2 years and will clean nearly your entire apartment. Microfibre cloths are perfect for everything from cleaning your bathroom to wiping up your counters and mopping your floor. Find them through Norwex Canada, on Amazon, or at Canadian Tire

2 in 1 vacuum

A vacuum that does double duty – both a stick vacuum and handheld in one, will make cleaning easier. Corded vacuums provide more suction without disruptions; however, a cordless vacuum offers freedom to move around without finding a plug. The Dirt Devil Power Max Upright vacuum has a powerful suction with a lightweight feel and durability. For a cordless vacuum, look for one with removeable or long-lasting battery. The Hoover ONEPWR Blade Plus offers lightweight cleaning, 2 ION batteries with 35 minutes runtime each, and several attachments.

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser

The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser can remove tough stains, build up, and muck from just about every surface. The sponges tackle tough stains, dirt, and buildup with little effort. Simply wet, squeeze out excess water, then scrub over the dirt. As you use them, the sponges deteriorate until there is nothing left, making them better for the environment than harsh chemicals.

A microwave cleaner

The microwave gathers a lot of splatters and stuck on food over time. Cleaning it can be difficult and awkward. The Angry Mama microwave steam cleaner uses steam to loosen stuck on food and sauce. To use, simply remove the top to add water and vinegar to the fill lines, place top piece back on and microwave for 7 minutes. After the microwaving, let Angry Mama sit for two minutes, then open the microwave, take out Angry Mama, and wipe down the interior with a sponge or cloth to wipe down.
