5 Must-Have Cleaning Tools
By Arianne Cohen
1. A Cleaning Apron
Get one with a loop large enough to hang 2 or 3 spray bottles, deep pockets for your tools, and at least one wide pocket big enough to stash trash. Try: The Clean Team Speed Cleaning Apron.
2. Reusable Microfiber Cloths
They attract and grip dust and dirt, so you only need to wipe surfaces once. Get two fine-woven cloths for glass and shiny surfaces, and three large-loop cloths for general cleaning of dusty surfaces.
3. Eraser Sponge
A special two-sided sponge made to easily remove countertop stains with plain water.
4. Old Toothbrush
Great for cleaning small crevices and hard-to-reach places.
5. Deactivated Credit Card
Use it for scraping up stuck-on gunk.
