1. A Supply Caddy
Every home needs a place for storing every day use cleaning products and a supply caddy is a great solution.
2. An All-Purpose Cleaner
Cleaning products are a dime a dozen but make sure to always have an all-purpose cleaner around the house. All-purpose cleaners can be used on many different surfaces and for a variety of cleaning tasks around the house. However, they are likely to contain powerful chemicals to get rid of dirt so be sure to follow the directions on the label when using them.
3. A Disinfectant
Disinfectants, such as Dettol, are very useful for cleaning kitchens and bathrooms and they can kill germs that cause diseases. A disinfectant can be very useful for surfaces like a kitchen counters or sinks as well as chairs and rubbish bins. It can also come in handy in cold and flu seasons to decrease the risk of contracting germs and infections.
4. An Extendable Duster
An extendable duster can extend your reach and help you clean ceiling vents and light fixtures and dust the tops of bookshelves and cabinets.

Not only can they be used as an alternative to kitchen towels, they can also be used to absorb the fat that surfaces on the top of broths and soups, keep produce fresh for a longer time and keep cast-iron pots rust free.
