Which cleaning products do you swear by?!

I have just thrown away a load of old cleaning things that I have never used/were rubbish and I just wondered what everyone else used!

I tend to use...
Mr Muscle or Dettox for the kitchen
Harpic 100% limescale for the toilets
Flash for the bathrooms (nice smell)
Grot Buster for yucky stuff/sinks
Ariel Excel gel/Ace bleach for washing
shiny sinks-sinks!
hob brite-ceramic hob
Windowlene for windows/mirrors

I bought some Zoflora recently as a friend raved about it, but I'm not sure what to use it for!!

What do you use-can you give me some tips/ideas please?! Do you use anything before you hoover? Good stain removers?

Stardrops and Zoflora. They're all I need for daily cleaning.

Domestos grot buster for the bathroom. You don't even need to scrub, just leave it on mouldy bits/grout and it's magic. Magic I tell you.

Mr muscle window cleaner, makes cleaning the windows effortless.

Stopped buying all the different ones now as it makes no difference. I put a general cleaner into a spray bottle with water - instant cleaner and its a lot cheaper too.

Zoflora - I use to soak my clothes in over night and pour down the kitchen sink to make the place smell nice apart from that it has little use.

Bleach for the WC and thats it!

Zoflora is the best disinfectant for cleaning up cat pee. At one point I was getting through a lot of it. I also have the little Zoflora pump spray which I spritzed the potty with.

Other than that I use:
Dr Beckman for the stone floor
Methods products for the bathroom
Harpic Limescale loo cleaner
Fairy for washing up
Persil in various formats for clothes washing
Glass polishing e-cloth for taps and mirrors
Different coloured micro fiber cloths from ebay for all cleaning/wiping.

I am going to have a clear out too as I realise that loads of products under the sink I don't use.

Hope this helps.

Limelite for bathrooms especially shower screens. This product is absolutely amazing. Have never been so excited about a cleaning product. Removes limescale like magic.
