Gather these tools and you’ll be ready for Spring Cleaning!

Spring has sprung, and Hollywood Storage Center of Thousand Oaks wants to help you get ready to make your home squeaky clean!

Perhaps we sound like your child’s teacher, but to do a job correctly, you first need to have the right tools. Gather these items and you’ll be ready to go:

Steel Bucket
Get rid of that old dirty plastic bucket and invest in a large steel bucket. It’s big enough to hold your cleaning kit, and because it’s made of stainless steel, it won’t rust.

Bon Ami
All-Purpose Cleaner
Try a reusable bottle to be more “green.” Use a concentrated cleaner and add water.

Multipurpose Powder
Try Bon Ami. Around for more than a century, this mildly abrasive powder works on ceramic, stainless steel, and porcelain.

Scrub Brushscrub brush

Choose a nice wooden brush for those extra pesky clean-ups.


Reusable Cleaning Cloths
Break your paper-towel habit with reusable cloths, which hold up well in the wash.

Natural Sponges
Try natural cellulose sponges. They are soft and pliable (and a bargain, too).

Dishwashing Liquid
A good dishwashing liquid mixed with water can clean almost anything, including countertops and painted wood. Use one with no perfume or dyes.

Buy a pair of snug-fitting latex gloves.

Glass and Surface Cleaner
There are many multi-surface cleansers on the market today. Choose a minty scent and you’ll be ready to go!

Diluted with water, vinegar is a household M.V.P. Use it for green cleaning everything from laminate floors to chandeliers.
