Spray Cleaners

Written by Karen Bates (last updated August 7, 2023)

To maintain a clean and sanitary environment, your house must be cleaned regularly. This doesn't necessarily mean that you need to deep-clean the rooms in your home all the time, but by taking small measures every day you can ensure that the surfaces in your home are stain free and safe for you and your family.

The various surfaces in your home require their own particular cleaning methods. For instance, in most cases the cleaner you use in the bathtub is not suitable for your living room carpet. Because of this, you should build up an arsenal of cleaning tools to assist you with each cleaning task that might come your way. Being prepared to clean up a mess as soon as it happens will give you the greatest chance of a successful cleaning.

Although there are many ways you can go about cleaning, you should consider what will be most convenient for you. To take care of messes quickly and easily, spray cleaners are a great way to go. These cleaners are ready to use with a useful spray nozzle, making your task easier.

No matter what the job, you can find a spray cleaner that can get the task done fast. The following are some examples of the types of spray cleaners that you might find helpful:

  • An all-purpose spray cleaner is great for cleaning many hard surfaces in your home. For simple clean-up of small spills and spots, spray some all-purpose cleaner on the surface and wipe away.
  • The bathroom can be a pain to get clean, and that's why a heavy-duty spray cleaner may be in order. Bathroom cleaners are formulated to deal with cleaning problems most often associated with the bathroom area, such as hard water build-up, soap scum, mold, mildew, toilet bowl stains, tub stains, and others. When using this type of cleaner, always wear the proper hand and eye protection to save your skin from chemicals.
  • Carpet cleaner is a must-have if you have any carpeted areas in your home. If you encounter a spill on the carpet, work as quickly as possible with a carpet cleaning spray for the best chance of total spot removal. Follow product directions carefully to avoid potentially setting the stain.

Before using any spray cleaner, remember to test a small, inconspicuous area beforehand so you know exactly how the cleaner will affect the surface.
