  • Rubber gloves: Protect your hands from cleaning products with rubber gloves. With bright colors and pretty designs, rubber gloves don’t have to be boring nowadays.
  • Cleaning cloths: White cotton cleaning cloths are essential. Fold them for convenient storage and use them to wipe down fixtures, surfaces, mirrors and remove spots.
  • Scrubbing sponge: The double-duty sponge has an absorbent side to wipe up excess product and an abrasive side to take out stubborn stains.
  • Squeegee: Clean windows, mirrors and glass with a squeegee. It removes dirt and cleaning fluid with one quick swipe – no streaks left behind!
  • Scraper: Dried up food and debris comes up quickly with a plastic scraper without scratching your surface!
  • Tile Brush: A brush with a handle and thick bristles makes tiles and grout sparkling clean and free of grime.
  • Toothbrush: An old toothbrush makes quick work of dirt that settles into fixtures, rims and corners.
