Can you deal with any mess that comes your way? Whether you’re moving to a new home, planning for your first apartment, or just taking inventory of your on-hand supplies, these basic Heavy-Duty Cleaners Supplies are a must-have for removing stains, spills, filth, grime, oil, and more.
Having the right equipment is essential to keeping your home clean and making the process as simple as possible. If you’ve ever tried to clean up a mess without the right cleaning products, you know something very well. And while there’s no one magic tool that can handle everything, these necessities will ensure you’re prepared in case a mess happens; you will be covered, and they always do.
With that in mind, here are some heavy-Duty Cleaners Supplies that you should always have in your home.
When Should You do a Deep Cleaning?
You can begin to incorporate deep cleaning into your home maintenance in a few different ways. If you’ve ever done any spring cleaning, that’s great! Although spring is an excellent time to declutter, clean, and organize, you should deep clean more than once a year. Seasonal cleaning, or deep cleaning approximately every three months on a weekend, is an option. Another approach is to break down your entire cleaning checklist into smaller monthly or weekly tasks, completing one area on a regular basis or 1-2 tasks per week.
The more people living in a house, the more regularly it should be cleaned thoroughly. If you share a room, divide cleaning duties equally among your roommates—both deep cleaning and routine maintenance. Consider allocating an area of the house to a different person (except the bedroom, of course).
What you’ll Need to Get Started
Deep cleaning your home does not require the use of expensive specialized products. White vinegar, baking soda, dish soap, a scrub brush, and microfiber cleaning cloths are all excellent and inexpensive cleaning tools. Here’s a list to get you started stocking your cleaning cabinet or caddy:
Heavy-Duty Cleaners Supplies
In terms of usability and convenience, having the right equipment can make a huge difference. If you’re stocking up on basic cleaning items for the first time and then upgrading as needed, it’s okay to buy lesser versions of some of the more expensive tools on our list.
Even if you don’t have carpeted floors, a vacuum cleaner is a must. If you don’t have the space or budget for an upright alternative, consider this one. Buy a handheld vacuum cleaner, often referred to as a dustbuster, to vacuum trouble areas like baseboards, couches, and wayward pet fur wherever it may end up.
Microfiber towels are delicate enough to clean all surfaces, including stainless steel and glass, without leaving scratches. To keep them clean, buy a couple and chuck them in the wash with your towels on a regular basis.
You won’t need a bucket every time you clean, but you’ll be glad you have one when you do. When you’re not using it for something else, use it as a caddy to store and transport your cleaning goods from room to room.
Broom and dustpan
When it comes to dust, fur, filth, and everything else that flies on non-carpeted flooring, yes any broom and dustpan will work wonders. You can find a smaller handheld option for tight spaces that is similar to a vacuum cleaner and offers similar capabilities with a little more effort.
A flat mop often referred to as a dust mop, is a great alternative to the typical and unruly mop used by many individuals. And if you don’t like the idea of discarding pre-purchased mop pads after each use, making your own is a snap.
Buying a good pair of thick rubber gloves is cheap and necessary to protect your hands from cleaning chemicals and other messes. They last longer (and offer significantly more protection) than latex or nitrile gloves. Choose another pair to keep in the kitchen to protect your hands from hot water while you’re doing the dishes.
Keep a squeegee in your shower to prevent soap scum from accumulating on the tile, which will save you time in the long run. Many of them come with suction attachments, so you can mount them on the wall and use them as needed.
Toilet brush and holder
A toilet brush with bristles will help you clean your toilet bowl with minimal effort. There are single-use options, but for your wallet—and the environment—buy a reusable one and replace it only once or twice a year.
When it comes to getting a good deep clean, water isn’t going to cut it. You’ll need the right Heavy-Duty Cleaners for this, though whether you choose the generic versions or the natural types is entirely up to you. In the list, we have listed both types of options so that you can choose what is best for your home.
One of the most important cleaning products you can have is a good multi-surface, all-purpose cleaner. Grease, dirt, and stains can all be removed using an all-purpose cleaner, and most only require a quick spray and wipe down.
Glass cleaner is specifically designed for glass surfaces such as windows and tables, allowing a thorough cleaning without stains or marks.
Wood cleanser, like glass cleaner, is a surface cleaner specifically designed for use on wood. All-purpose cleaning spray and water can damage both the wood and the varnish, so it’s a must.
Antibacterial spray or wipes
Cleaning products with antibacterial agents disinfect and sterilize your home, killing microorganisms. Use in conjunction with a disinfectant cleaner, especially in germ-infested areas such as kitchens and bathrooms.
Tile cleaner with bleach
In baths and showers, a buildup of soap scum, mildew, mildew, and rust are all common. This type of ugly mess can be removed with a bleach-based tile cleaner, but be careful not to turn on your vent or open a window to avoid inhaling the fumes.
Toilet bowl cleaner
It’s easy to keep a clean toilet with a bleach-based toilet bowel cleanser. Get a clinging variety so it doesn’t just drip into the water, then use it to scrape the toilet bowl with your toilet brush.
Two Easy Home-Made Cleaning Products
Baking soda paste and one-to-one vinegar spray are two of our thorough cleaning methods. Start with a cup of baking soda and a few splashes of water until you make a paste that looks like wet sand.
- Trick: If the smell of vinegar bothers you, add a few drops of any essential oil (such as citrus or lavender) to help mask it. If you can’t get essential oils, a squeeze of lemon will suffice.
- Trick: Look for the white vinegar gallon jug and the giant bag of baking soda. It’s fine to buy multiples of regular-sized boxes, but it will save you money if you can find huge bags at your local store.
- Note: While it’s great for cleaning, vinegar doesn’t disinfect. In our extensive overview, we offer a heavy-duty cleaner pack to disinfect, clean, and sanitize your house.

Remember that some heavy-duty cleaner supplies may not be necessary for your home (for example, there’s no point in buying granite cleaners if you don’t have a granite surface or paw wipes if you don’t have a dog). However, most of them are a lifesaver to make your home look fresh and luxurious.
Do you want to use as many homemade heavy-duty cleaners as possible? Many cleaning solutions can be made at home using common household items such as white vinegar, baking soda, bleach, and even lemon juice. Do some research to find all-natural cleaning recipes, but keep in mind that they may not be as effective as non-natural items at completely removing viruses and bacteria. However, you can eradicate viruses and bacteria using Sanox disinfecting cleaner.
Of course, the ideal way to avoid a time-consuming deep cleaning is to maintain your home regularly. That way, the next time you check out this deep cleaning checklist, your home will already be in perfect condition.
