We have inside dogs so I go around every morning with the Dyson stick vac and pick up hair then do a deep vacuum with my Miele cat and dog....does a brilliant job. I use the Sabco spray mop filled with water soluble Tea Tree oil on my wooden floors (great because it doesn’t wet the too much) and smells great. I also use the same solution on bench tops. I use a non scratch scourer and dishwashing liquid to clean the sinks and I love my steam mop to clean the bathroom floor. CLR sprayed on shower screens and washed off with the steam mop. I always said I would never be a slave to housework so anything quick and simple works for me!

I purchased a Neato Botvac 3 years ago and give thanks every week for it's twice weekly vacuum. Best investment ever. Occasional rug vacuum with a powerhead completes that chore. I also purchased white cotton facecloths from the supermarket and use a fresh one daily for all my surface cleans. A soak before laundering means I have hygenic, non polluting cloths always to hand. Squegee the shower each time and I have never needed to use any harsh chemicals. Big fan of essential oils.

@ Susan Vale, I can feel your pain when it comes to cleaning those long grates , I always loved the look of them and installed one and it’s definitely the worst design mistake. Horrible to clean, I had mine remade from perforated steel and I must say it’s much easier to clean because it’s just one piece of steel bent in shape.
