Surface Cleaning

There are many different surfaces within a household. Many of these surfaces can be cleaned with one, or maybe two different cleaners. There are however many different surfaces that have a much higher rate for dirt build-up and will often require a more powerful cleaning solution. This list of surface cleaning tools and cleaners should help anyone get a good start at effective surface cleaning around their household.


Rubber Gloves

Rubber gloves come in handy when handling heavy chemical agents. If you want to protect your hands from burns when using heavy chemical cleaners, you will need rubber gloves.

Paper Towels

Paper-Towels are good for cleaning up surfaces and are disposable. They are normally used with other cleaning products like sprays to wipe down and clean messy areas. They are also great for window and mirror cleaning. They can also be used by themselves with a little bit of warm-water to clean easy spills. Paper-Towels can also be used to collect dust but be careful as they can scratch delicate surfaces.

Cleaning Cloths

Cleaning cloths are not necessarily disposable but are another good surface cleaning item to have. Not only do they clean surfaces, they can clean and polish metallic items depending on its softness. Cleaning cloths like microfiber cloths can also be used to clean bathroom mirrors. Many people actually prefer using cleaning clothes over paper towels to clean their bathroom mirrors.

Get rid of Stains and SpotsSponges perform a handful of different tasks all beneficial for cleaning dirty surfaces. They often have two sides to them: one for gentle scrubbing and absorbing small messes and spills, the other for scrubbing more heavy duty stains and spots with the rough adhesive side. Sponges often will become fully absorbed with whatever mess it is you’re cleaning so it’s advised to completely wash it out after its use.


Scrubbers are essential when it comes to heavy duty surface cleaning. Without scrubbers we would not be able to get out hard stains, calcium or lime scale buildups in toilets, bathtubs, showers, sinks, and around drains. These little tools come in a variety of different shapes, sizes, textures, and materials. Each scrubber has its own use. Which type of scrubber you will need depends on your own cleaning situation and personal preference. Scrubbers are normally used with heavier cleaning agents for fighting tougher stains and buildups.
