OK, you can have specific stuff for the machines, like laundry powder and dishwasher stuff and I'll chuck in a free bottle of Fairy washing up liquid, but for the rest of the house?

And not vinegar.
I don't care that it has amazing properties, I don't want my house to smell like a fish and chip shop.

Wet Wipes. I once cleaned a whole holiday apartment with wipes. When the agent came to check all was I order as we left, he complimented me on how clean we had left it.

Sugar soap

Floor wipes . They are thicker than normal anti bacterial wipes . I use them to clean everywhere.

Tesco multi surface wipes.

Came on to say Method grapefruit too smile

Can I have two, please?!
Ammonia (water it down to wash windows, floors, counters, anything that gets greasy)
and Bicarbonate of soda (for scrubbing grime, cleaning stainless steel, oven dirt, limescale).

I need 3! Barkeeper's Friend, Viakal and baby wipes.

If I had to choose, probably the wipes.

I use bio powder for most cleaning.
does an amazing job on floors and sinks.

Method clementine spray

Crumbelina Sun 16-Jul-17 13:44:38

Unless you need anti-bac wipes for surfaces, baby wipes are so much cheaper, e.g. for dusty surfaces. About 1p each.

Bleach! <runs away>

Zoflora lavender. If you dilute it really weakly it can be used as a idsinfectant spray for all surfaces including floors. Stronger for cleaning loos and emergencies after the cat has been sick etc. It doesn't smell over powering, just of real lavender, .so long as it's not too strong

Method - is excellent!

Also, Fairy original is good for just about everything, too.

MaisyPops Sun 16-Jul-17 13:45:27

Stardrops white vinegar spray for me. But it does still have that vinegar type smell.

If anyone has a brilliant all round affordable cleaning product I can use instead, please let me know!

Star drops the original one, dilute and use as a spray for surfaces, it cleans mirrors, you can use it in you washing machine and as washing up liquid.

FormerlyFrikadela01 Sun 16-Jul-17 13:46:54


I clean everything with either soapy water made with fairy liquid or zoflora.

TeenagersandFurbabies Sun 16-Jul-17 13:48:12

Method wild rhubarb anti- bac all purpose cleaner. It smells great and I use it literally everywhere.

SerfTerf Sun 16-Jul-17 13:49:12

Flash (Febreeze scented version). You can clean surfaces, bathrooms AND floors with it and it makes everything smell clean (although I'd miss the smell of almond method spray).

OopsThereGoMyTrousers Sun 16-Jul-17 14:30:04

Thanks for your suggestions...
So I'm going to be VERY generous and let you have 3 cleaning products.
So fill yer boots...!

What are your magic three?
I have closer to three dozen and they're all rubbish...

Simple - BLEACH!

<wants to run, but isn't doing> I can't understand how people clean without it.

Ollivander84 Sun 16-Jul-17 14:32:34

Flash febreeze
vinegar based glass cleaner

elevenclips Sun 16-Jul-17 14:32:42

Baby wipes (vast quantity)
A decent non toxic limescale remover (Durgol)
Pledge multi surface wipes (will clean glass, electronics, wood)
