10 Cleaning Supplies You Need to Own

If you’re a new business owner unfamiliar with cleaning, you may be looking at the rows and rows of cleaning products in the supermarket and asking yourself, “what on earth do I need?”

This blog answers your call for help. So, what essential cleaning products will you need for your business?

All-purpose cleaners

An all-purpose cleaner is a cleaning staple used to sanitise kitchen counters, the sink, appliances, and toilets. It’s also useful as a spot cleaner for tile backsplashes, floors, walls, and lino.

Glass cleaner

As the name suggests, glass cleaner cleans your mirrors and windows and makes countertops shine. Ditch the paper towels for a squeegee, lint-free cloth, or old newspaper for a streak-free finish when wiping it off.

Liquid dish soap

Alongside washing dishes, you can mix liquid dish soap with water to create a cleaning solution for mopping floors.

Toilet bowl cleaner

Thickly spreading the toilet bowl cleaner will allow the cleaner to stick to the rim for extra soaking, and adding bleach will keep your toilets looking nice and white.


This powerful cleaning aid is very versatile in its uses. You can use it in your toilet brush holder to disinfect the brush between cleanings or on grout or tiles to eliminate mould.

Dishwashing powder

If you have a dishwasher, finding the best dishwashing powder is essential to eliminate the built-up residue from dirty dishes.

Broom and dustpan

A broom and dustpan are essential to any business.

Remember to replace these tools when the bristles become broken, worn, or jagged to ensure you successfully catch dust and debris. Look for a dustpan with a rubber edge and a comfortable handle.

Vacuum cleaner

Make sure you research vacuums beforehand to get the best vacuum for your needs and price range. When considering how much you should invest in a vacuum, pay attention to how much people use the office and how dirty it gets.

Mop and bucket

A mop is necessary to sanitise your hard flooring, reduce allergies in the workplace, prevent floor scratches, and keep them looking their best.

Toilet brush and holder

Finding a toilet brush holder that can hold bleach is recommended to sanitise your brush between cleanings. It would be best to replace the bleach every two weeks or less.
