Which cleaning product do you use on almost everything that you absolutely could not live without? I used to love pinesol and use it on a lot of stuff. But now I find the smell pretty over powering. It seems the only thing that works good on my wood floors. Lysol wipes and lysol cleaners used to be another of my big favorites. But my new favorite that I have found is this Mr Clean all in one, multi surface whatever cleaner. It has a fresh almost non existent smell and cleans well too. But to be honest I am not sure if it's antibacterial. I switch between cleaners all the time. I am still finding products that work better or replace my old ones. So what is your experience, what is your favorite product?

I have a ceramic tile floor in my house and I have found that if I get an ordinary everyday disinfectant and mix a little bit of that with wash and wax car wash my floors are the cleanest that I can get them. I know it sounds strange but I have discovered that car cleaning products are better and cheaper than most of the house cleaning products. Like armoral for car dashes keeps the dust off my shelves for longer than other furniture cleaning products and they come up looking like new. For the floors though I like using wash and wax car cleaner with a bit of disinfectant. I think they work better because they are designed for things that are out in the elements more often than not so therefore they have a longer lasting effect indoors, if that makes sense.

That is very interesting. My husband lays tile, although we only have our small bathroom cermaic tiled. That is good to know. I will have to take a look at some of these products and maybe try some out. The rest of the floors in my house are wood though. I can't wax it gets way slippery lol. Unless I want a laugh.

I don't really think that I can name one specific product that is my best friend. However, it is very easy for me to think of one specific tool that is my best friend when it comes to cleaning in my house. That tool would have to be my Swiffer Wet Jet. The reason that I love that thing so much is because of the fact that I have 2 kids, 2 dogs and 2 cats walking around my house and they are constantly tracking things into my house as far as dirt and such goes. I have to use the Swiffer all the time.
