Keeping a new place clean and organized can be overwhelming. Whether it’s keeping up with dirty dishes, vacuuming your carpets, or giving the bathroom a deep clean, there is plenty to clean in an apartment. Here are some recommended apartment cleaning supplies and tips to help you keep a consistently tidy and relaxing space.

Gather Apartment Cleaning Supplies

In order to have a clean apartment, you need to always have all the necessary apartment cleaning supplies on hand. There are basic cleaning supplies that you can use for every room such as disinfecting spray, antibacterial wipes, air fresheners, brooms, mops, and a vacuum cleaner. There are also specific apartment cleaning tools you may need for the kitchen and bathroom. Here are some of the more specific apartment cleaning supplies for those rooms. 

Kitchen Cleaning Supplies 

  • Oven cleaner 
  • Stainless Steel cleaner 
  • Sponges  
  • Dish cloths 
  • Dish soap 

Bathroom Cleaning Supplies 

  • Toilet bowl brush  
  • Toilet bowl cleaner 
  • Tub and tile cleaner 
  • Glass cleaner 
  • Rubber gloves 

Focus on One Room at a Time

Another cleaning tip for your apartment is to focus on room at a time. When you separate what needs to be cleaned, room by room, it becomes much less overwhelming. You can devote one day a week to a certain room and move onto the next once it is complete. That way you are giving one room the full attention and deep clean, rather than rushing through it and missing some things. 

Clean as you Go

Cleaning as you go is one of the best methods to use when it comes to keeping your apartment clean. If you go a few weeks without cleaning up throughout the day, things will start to add up. Then, when you finally start to clean, it will be a longer project and be overwhelming. If you clean a little each day, or at least each week, you can stay on a consistent schedule, and it won’t seem as overwhelming each time you need to clean. 

Make your Bed

Making your bed every morning is a small little habit you can implement in your daily cleaning routine. Even if the rest of the house is not in tip top shape, making your bed makes you feel like you are one step closer to having an organized home. It is a simple task that takes very little time and energy to do each morning after you wake up. This one small cleaning task can help give you the motivation to clean more of the apartment as well.
