When it comes to cleaning the home, efficiency is key. It’s officially over for the days where we all scrub tirelessly with regular brushes and sponges, and hello to the days with the electric spin scrubber – an absolute game-changer in the world of cleaning tools. In order to use its magical powers, we need to accompany it with the perfect cleaner. In this article, we’ll explore the world of cleaning solutions and discovering what works best with the electric spin scrubber and how to get the house sparkling effortlessly.

Understanding Your Cleaning Need Why Use an Electric Spin Scrubber?

But what is an electric spin scrubber and how can we use it? It’s a cleaning device with versatile interchangeable brush heads, two speed levels and a retractable handle – all of which work together to deep clean surfaces in less time and without straining your back. It doesn’t matter if it's soap scum, grout or kitchen grease, the electric spin scrubber makes quick work of the toughest of messes!


Understanding Your Cleaning Needs

The electric spin scrubber cannot work at its best if you don’t understand your cleaning needs. That’s why it’s so important to take note of your home’s different surfaces, the types of dirt they accumulate and what type of cleaning solutions you need to employ in order to assure they are sparkling and germ-free. By developing a deep understanding of your cleaning needs, then you can choose the right cleaner to get the best results.

Types of Cleaners

Speaking of, to choose the right cleaner, you need to understand that there are multiple types. Here they are and what they primarily do so you can match them with the areas you need to clean:

  1. Windex Glass and Window Cleaner: Windex is a household name for a million reasons – one of them is for their glass and window cleaner. Their formula is so versatile, you can use it for polishing mirrors, windows, or any surface of fixture made of glass and metal (yes, it can clean metal too!).
  1. Scrubbing Bubbles Disinfectant Bathroom Cleaner: Bathroom Cleaners, specifically this one from Scrubbing Bubbles, can be synonymous to an all-purpose cleaner because its formula is capable of penetrating and removing grime. In fact, you can sit back, relax and let this sit for a few minutes and by then, bathroom cleaning the first off will be a no-brainer.  
  2. Mildew is a whole different ball game to tackle. The pinkish, developed from  mold and moisture type of stain, can be found on grouts, tiles and vinyls and  cannot be removed with simple soap and water. That’s why this one from X-14  will be your sidekick in getting rid of mildew. The only downside? Its chlorine- like scent is too strong for even the most trained noses.
  1. Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Original Cleaning Pads: Cleaners don’t just come in liquid form, they also come in the form of pads. This specific one from Mr. Clean is great for the ones who still prefer to let their hands do the work and whose enemies are stains from makeup, hair dye and even skincare products. So, you can continue to do those GRWM videos without worrying of damaging your bathroom permanently.

    Choosing the Right Cleaner

    With so many cleaners to choose from, picking the right one for your electric spin scrubber seems like a huge task. Allow me to lighten the load a little bit and help you narrow down your choices with some tips:

    1. Understanding the Types of Cleaning Products: Before getting into the nitty-gritties of actually picking the right cleaner, you have to be familiar with the variety that is available to you. For example, you have to understand that toilet cleaner is meant for cleaning the toilet only, or a glass cleaner is only meant to make your glass surfaces or fixtures spick and span!
    1. Checking for Quality of Ingredients: Once you’re familiar with the types of cleaners available to you, it’s time to assess the quality of ingredients. Every brand is different – even in the way they formulate their products. Read from reputable sources about which ingredients must be included in your cleaner, jot it down in a list and use that as a guide in buying the best cleaner out of the lot.
    1. Ensure Product is Safe to Use: You are a responsible bathroom cleaner, but there is no harm in developing the habit of checking if your cleaners are safe to use on your surfaces, fixtures and even on your skin. There are some brands whose formulas are so strong, it could damage the skin’s barrier so it is better to be safe than sorry, and take the extra time to read a cleaner’s safety considerations.
    1. Supply Availability: Last, and definitely not the least – make sure that your cleaner of choice is available at your nearest store because if there’s one thing you could hate even more than a dirty bathroom – is the fact that you cannot clean it right away because you’re out of your trusted cleaner.

    While all of these may be helpful to your cleaning routine, if you’re just going to do so mild cleaning, then you don’t even need to use one and just go right ahead with your traditional cloth and scrubber!

    Tips for Using Your Electric Spin Scrubber

    We’re on the last stretch! There are also best practices for using an electric spin scrubber so that deep cleaning will always feel like a dream:

    1. Read the Instructions: Before using your electric spin scrubber, familiarize yourself with the manufacturer's instructions and recommendations. This will ensure that you use the device safely and effectively.
    1. Prep the Surface: For optimal results, pre-treat heavily soiled areas with the cleaner before using the spin scrubber. Allow the cleaner to penetrate the dirt and grime for a few minutes before scrubbing.
    1. Use Gentle Pressure: Let the electric spin scrubber do the work for you by applying gentle pressure to the surface. Avoid pressing too hard, as this can damage delicate surfaces or wear down the bristles of the brush head.
    1. Rinse Thoroughly: After scrubbing, rinse the surface thoroughly with water to remove any residue from the cleaner. This will prevent streaking and ensure a clean finish.
    1. Maintain Your Spin Scrubber: Regularly clean and maintain your electric spin scrubber to ensure optimal performance. Remove any debris from the brush head and replace worn-out brushes as needed.


    To wrap it all up, choosing the right cleaner for your electric spin scrubber will provide benefits that even you did not anticipate. More than just achieving the spick-and-span home of your dreams, you’ll be able to build a cleaning routine that assures the removal of tough grease in the kitchen, soap scum in the bathroom and dirt on surfaces – all in half the time you usually took before getting an electric spin scrubber. Additionally, having the right cleaner will keep you away from potentially damaging your surfaces because each cleaner has the right potency for the surface or fixture you’re tackling. By understanding your cleaning requirements and selecting the appropriate cleaner, you can make the most of your electric spin scrubber and enjoy a cleaner, healthier home.
