Must-Have Cleaning Products for Apartment Living

Being on your own for the first time can be intimidating-especially when it comes to cleaning more than just your side of a dorm room. But having a few key essentials can help make the task of cleaning a little easier and little less of a chore.

1. Disinfectant Wipes

The all-around best tools to have in an apartment. From quickly wiping down a bathroom counter to cleaning off doorknobs to prevent the flu, these things always come in handy. Plus, they’re great for cleaning in a flash.

2. Paper Towels

The universal mess-cleaner, napkin, tissue, or whatever you need them to be at the moment. The list of uses for paper towels is never ending. You can even buy them in bulk packs, which is great if you’re like me and use at least 20 sheets a day. I make a lot of messes, okay?

3. Swiffer Mop

For me personally, I’ve never even used one of those mops with a bundle of strings attached to the end that you ring out every time you go over the kitchen floor. A Swiffer mop is easy to use, easy to store, and gets the job done quickly and efficiently each and every time. Overall, an essential to keeping a clean apartment.

4. All-purpose Surface Cleaner

I think it goes without saying that this is an apartment staple. For cleaning off the counter after a Friday night meal at home or wiping off the dust from the desk that might not have been touched in a while… this stuff takes the dread out of cleaning (at least a little bit).

5. Vacuum

If you’re anything like me, vacuuming is a chore that you like to put off for as long as possible. But if you’re tired of walking around on a layer of crumbs and strands of hair, a vacuum is the best cleaning tool to have. Even small ones do the trick. Just a few quick trips around the floor and your apartment will look as good as new in no time.
