Looking for some all natural spring cleaning supplies this year? I’m rounding up all of my favorites so you can clean your whole house without a single worry!
It’s finally spring! You know what that means. This week, we’re sweeping away the dust bunnies and scrubbing the baseboards. It’s time to make the whole house sparkle so we can stress a little less about housework as the weather gets nicer.
So, as a mama, I’m always wondering: What are the best spring cleaning supplies to buy? Ever since learning about what’s in a lot of our household products, I’ve been on a mission to detoxify, and spring cleaning is no different.
I don’t want to scrub my house down with harsh cleaners that cause respiratory problems for my family to breathe in. I don’t want to clean my counters with products labeled “unsafe for human consumption” and then fix dinner on those same surfaces later the same day. So, what’s a girl to do?
Luckily, we have lots of options, and now is a great time to start preparing your products and supplies. Want to overhaul your spring cleaning supplies before you start scrubbing? I’ve got you covered. Here’s what you’ll need to get started.
Get Organized for Spring Cleaning
First, you need to get organized. Have you grabbed my spring cleaning checklist? If not, you can get that right here. It’ll be a helpful guide for room-by-room cleaning so you know you don’t miss a thing.
Then, you’ll want to get a cute bucket or caddy to keep your supplies in. I love keeping everything handy to carry from room to room. Plus, this makes it easier to store. Simply stick everything in a closet until it’s time to clean again, and you can pull the whole thing out without hunting down your supplies all over the house.
One of the best things about using natural cleaners is that it keeps your supply list short and simple. When you have cleaners that can do multiple jobs, there’s less need for extra supplies! It keeps the cost down, and makes it easier to organize.

Spring Cleaning Supplies to Have on Hand
- Cleaning caddy: to tote all of your supplies in from room to room, and store them when you’re done.
- Microfiber cleaning cloths: for dusting especially, but they are also great for mirrors and windows since they leave to lint and no streaks!
- Old towels or cotton cleaning towels: I use these for baseboards, walls, and anything else you don’t want to use the microfiber on
- Dusting wand: for air vents, blinds, ceiling fans, etc.
- Gloves: These are optional, but I like to use them for grimier areas, like the bathroom.
- Vacuum cleaner with attachements
- Steam mop: I have this one
- Carpet Cleaner: I don’t personally have my own carpet cleaner, because we only have 2 bedrooms with carpet, but you might want to own one if you have a house full. Another good option is to rent one when you need it!
- Scrub Brushes or old toothbrushes: Personally, I like to keep both on hand. The toothbrushes are perfect for small spaces like tub caulking and air vents. The scrub brushes are great for sinks, tubs, and grout!
- Lint Roller: These are a good option for fabric areas that collect dust or pet hair
Spring Cleaning Products
Now that we’ve gathered all of our supplies, it’s time to chat products! We all have our favorites, so feel free to use those. I’m going to share my favorites here, though, in case you want something new to try!
- Branch Basics Cleaning Concentrate: I use this as the base for just about all of my own cleaners. It smells amazing, is plant based, cleans so well, and it’s safe enough for my kids to help me scrub. Win!
- White distilled vinegar: If you don’t want to use Thieves, this is another great base for your cleaners. It smells a bit strong, but it’ll calm down once it dries!
- Dr. Bronners Castille Soap: It’s amazing what can be cleaned with a little soap and hot water
- Baking soda: You’ll use this for soft scrubs, sinks, and toilets
- Hydrogen Peroxide: This is awesome for disinfecting. You can either mix it into your cleaners, or for really tough jobs, put a spray nozzel right on the bottle.
- Essential Oils: This is a personal preference, but we love using them in our cleaners. Not only do they make everything smell amazing, but they also have added cleaning benefits! Our favorites for cleaning are citrus oils (orange, lemon, and citrus fresh), Thieves, and Purification.
