Keeping and maintaining your cleaning basket
Once you’ve picked out your supplies and created your cleaning basket, the hard work is over with. After that, it’s just about maintaining your basket and keeping it clean and stocked with all the goodies.Once a month you’ll want to take the time to empty your cleaning basket and give it a good scrubbing.
Check it for product leaks, excess moisture, and dust that can accumulate and cause layers of grime to build on the bottom of it. And don’t forget to wipe down all of the product containers with a cleaning wipe (preferably a green one, you know how we like our green cleaning supplies), then let everything dry before restocking. Lastly go ahead and replace any sponges, cloths, and any other products that are running empty.
Below we’ll walk you through everything you need to make the perfect cleaning basket.
What you’ll need to make a cleaning basket:
- Cleaning caddy or tote
- Disinfecting surface cleaner
- Window cleaner
- Bathroom cleaner
- Dusting spray
- Dusting tool
- Color coordinating microfiber cleaning cloths
- A sponge or two
- Mr. Clean Magic Eraser
- Grout brush
Pro Tip: If you picked out a cleaning basket or caddy that’s on the smaller side, consider grabbing a few empty spray bottles on the smaller side so that you can easily refill them with your chemicals and that they all fit.
I’ve got my cleaning basket, now what?
Now that you’ve got your basket ready and all of your supplies, it’s time to find a spot for it. You’ll want to put your cleaning basket in a spot that’s convenient and easy to access.
