If you need to shop for cleaning supplies, you might be interested in the advice below.

Buy a variety of water-spot and stain-remover products that work on different surfaces and materials

Many people make the error of purchasing a single water spot and stain remover product, without reading its label carefully, and assuming that they'll be able to use this substance on any item in their home that gets stained or covered in water spots. In reality, whilst some water spot and stain remover products do work on multiple surfaces (for example, one version of this item might be able to remove these marks from both plastic and glass), most will only be effective and safe to use a specific material or surface.

As such, it's important to keep a variety of these stain and water spot removers in your cleaning cabinet. You should, for example, ensure that you have a stain remover that you can use on silk and other delicate materials, as well as one that you can use on tougher clothing and upholstered items. Additionally, you should pick up some water spot remover products that are effective on glass, wood, and the material that your kitchen counters are made from (such as granite), as these are the surfaces on which water spots will be most noticeable. A water spot and stain remover is critical in areas that experience spotting frequently.

Keep a mixture of standard and all-natural cleaning supplies in your cabinet

Even if you are quite happy to use standard cleaning products to clean your belongings, it's still a good idea to keep at least a few all-natural cleaning supplies in your home. For example, in addition to having a stain remover that uses effective-but-potent synthetic ingredients, you might also want to buy a milder one that contains baking soda. Likewise, you might want to buy some white vinegar, that you can use in place of normal window cleaning sprays when you need to.

If you ever have guests to stay who experience physical reactions to some synthetic products (for example, if certain standard laundry detergents give them dermatitis or if some synthetic cleaners make them sneeze), then they could develop symptoms if you use these products during their stay. If this happens, you might then have to run out to the store and pick up some all-natural cleaning products. Conversely, if you have a supply of these in your cabinet at home all the time, you can simply switch to using them whenever you have people in your home who have allergies.
