Material that needs to be cleaned
Contents and effects
When you look at the back of the bottle of your cleaning product, you will see its contents. While all the cleaning products are effective and they make things clean, different chemicals in them achieve that effect in different ways. Therefore, it is good to know which chemicals are good for cleaning which stains. For example, while chlorine is inexpensive and will kill microorganisms, it will also be completely ineffective in cleaning up organic matter. Iodine can actually stain plastic if you try to clean with it. While it will kill bacteria, it will be inactive if the temperature is above 49 degrees. With these things in mind, you need to think what you want to remove and choose the best combination of chemicals to do it.

Dangers and storage
If you cannot properly store your cleaning product and still keep it safe, then it is best not to have it around your home. Some strong and effective cleaning products can release gasses that can cause health problems if inhaled. Improper storage can cause them to leak, be available to children and the like. Also, you need to make sure that you are not allergic or overly sensitive to some of the compounds in those products. Those should definitely be off your shopping list, regardless of how well they do their cleaning.
Appliances and tools
You need mops, brooms, brushes, vacuum cleaners and quality steam cleaners. Considering what you have, you will choose the products that you need. If you are able to clean the entire home with a steam cleaner, then you don’t really need some amazingly strong bacteria killer on your floors as they will all be destroyed by the hot steam and that will be a lot healthier option than the chemicals. Also, once you use mops and brooms, you need to make sure that you use the products that will not damage the mops otherwise, you will turn it into a rag that even sheds a bit while you are trying to mop and you’ll end up with even more cleaning up to do.
A very important aspect of choosing the cleaning product is your environmental consciousness. There are effective cleaning products which are used with the minimum of hazardous chemicals or which are based on the old recipes for cleaning, like lemon acid and vinegar. If you want to save the earth, consider that when choosing the best cleaning product for your home.
