Tried and True Cleaners to Keep in Your Home

Most of us are spending more time at home. And if you are, you probably have realized that the more you are at home, the more often you need to clean your home. If you are ever on the quest for a great and effective cleaner to keep on hand, then this is the article for you. Here are some of the best tried and true cleaners that you are likely to find underneath your grandma’s kitchen sink.


Borax is cheap, natural, and effectively used for all sorts of cleaning applications. From freshening laundry to steaming carpets, it is easy to see why this product has been a favorite since 1891.

Bar Keeper’s Friend

Another cleaning aid that has been around since the 1800’s is Bar Keeper’s Friend. If you are fed up with stainless steel, ceramic, and other surfaces being dingy and dull, this is the product for you! Also made with natural ingredients, you can use Bar Keeper’s Friend to polish up anything from pots to stoves.

Castile Soap

Anything that has been trusted since the 1600’s is definitely worth keeping around. Castile soap is all-natural, easily accessible, and can be used virtually anywhere in your home. You can use it to wash dishes, clean laundry, and much more.


Although you must be a bit more mindful when using Clorox or other household bleaches, this product cannot be beat when it comes to sanitizing. A small bit will go a long way when making DIY disinfectants and it can return your dingy white laundry to crisp and bright with ease.

Arm & Hammer

The applications for Arm & Hammer baking soda are almost endless. Since baking soda is a powerful deodorizer, many keep a box in their fridge to maintain freshness. You can also use it to freshen up carpets and laundry. On top of that, baking soda is excellent to keep around for the avid baker since it is a vital ingredient in many baked goods.
