Best cleaning products recommended by Mommalikeme

This was HARD I won’t lie. I love cleaning products and have far too many, but I like to try them all and find what really works for me and for the various household needs I have. This will be an evolving list that I’ll add to as and when I come across more phenomenal products (and let’s be honest the brands are bringing out more and more incredible products all the time) – hence my cleaning cupboard overflowing.

I’m breaking it down into categories that I hope you’ll find useful – kinda like a gift guide (shopping guide?) for cleaning products! Keep in mind we’re all cleaning a different type of floor, stove and kitchen surface in our homes so what works for one, doesn’t always work for the other.

First up, my holy grail of must haves – these can be used in almost every room in the house!

Multipurpose products that cross over into more than one category (they’re that good)

Don’t ever underestimate the power of adding these three natural products/produce to your home – bicarbonate of soda, lemons and white spirit vinegar. You’ve seen me clean and deodorise sinks and plugs with it bicarb, vinegar and hot water, clean my microwave and Instant Pot with a simple lemon and water solution and rid my iron of brown marks with a simple bicarb and water paste. You can check out how I use the products on my dedicated cleaning highlight reels on Instagram here.

I hope these products will do for you what they do for me and remember to tag me in all your cleans – makes my heart so happy to see and always inspires me! Happy cleaning!
