  • We've collected all of our cleaning guides, reviews, and roundups in one place.
  • We also rounded up noteworthy discounts on our favorite cleaning products.

Springtime means warmer weather, spending more time outside, and of course, getting some deep spring cleaning done throughout our homes. Since we've all been spending more time indoors over the last year, there's been a greater accumulation of dust, grime, and other common household pollutants that will require deep, targeted cleaning to remove.

The start of a new season also offers the perfect opportunity to take the time to clean the spaces you may typically skip over during your weekly cleaning routines. However, finding the best products and tools for the job can be a challenge, especially with all of the options that are currently available.

Luckily, to celebrate the arrival of spring, we've compiled all of our spring cleaning resources, including our guides to the best dusters, mops, and vacuums; reviews of our favorite cleaning products and tools; cleaning tips and tricks; and more.

Vacuums, air purifiers, and other machines like carpet cleaners are the key to simplifying and speeding up the cleaning process. 

To pick a vacuum, think about the type and amount of flooring in your house, the main kinds of debris you want to pick up (e.g., food crumbs, pet hair), and whether you want to vacuum yourself or leave the job up to a robot. And don't think you have to spend a fortune; we recently tested the best cheap vacuum cleaners and they don't skimp on quality or power. If you're curious about robot vacuums, the Roborock S6 currently holds our top spot.

Many folks will find that a cordless vacuum offers the happiest medium of performance and ease of use. Surprisingly, Shark — not Dyson — was the top performer in our guide to the best cordless vacuums

An air purifier is another way you can clean your house and relieve allergies. The quietly efficient Coway Airmega 400 is the best air purifier for most people, and we also like the space heater-air purifier combo, Dyson Pure Hot + Cool

Small particles of dust and other allergens are more likely to trigger allergies during the springtime, making activities such as dusting and mopping very necessary. 

As the average home accumulates about 40 pounds of dust each year, you'll likely be searching for the most efficient dusters that pick up a great amount of dust and can get to those hard-to-reach spots. If you're looking for a disposable, reusable, or even an extendable duster we've got you covered with plenty of options. 

When shopping for a mop, you'll want to choose a model that works well with your floor type. Whether you need a mop to tackle stains on wood, ceramic, or any hard-surfaced floors our guide to the best mops features seven great mop options.

The tools you use to clean surfaces with matter just as much as the cleaning solutions you use. If you're hoping to use more eco-friendly alternatives to paper towels and other disposable cleaning tools, there's a wide range of products available. 

Our guide to the best cleaning cloths runs through five different options that can be used for multiple purposes including options for cleaning metals, electronics, and kitchen messes

For those looking to rid their households of paper towels, we reviewed the Bambooee reusable paper towels which can be washed and reused up to 100 times according to the brand. 

If you want to step up your sustainability efforts even more, these eleven reusable cleaning products are a great place to start. Some products of note include wool dryer balls, amber glass spray bottles, and a silicone sponge alternative.

During these times many of us are looking to sanitize various surfaces, items, appliances, and even our clothing. If you're looking for cleaners that are sure to protect you and your home from COVID-19 and other virus-causing bacteria you'll want to look for products that are EPA registered, meaning they'll effectively sanitize surfaces of these pathogens.  

If you're specifically looking for disinfecting cleaners that will kill virus-causing bacteria, our roundup of EPA registered home cleaning products and our guide to the best disinfecting cleaners offer several effective options such as Clorox Disinfecting Bleach and Lysol Disinfecting Spray

Keeping your clothing and major appliances clean and sanitized is another major concern many of us have run into during the pandemic. We compiled a guide to the best laundry detergents with our top pick being the Tide Free & Gentle Liquid Laundry Detergent. After running your washer and other large appliances frequently you'll want to sanitize them every now and then as well. We chose six products that will help you keep your dishwasher, garbage disposal, washing machine, and oven sparkly and clean.
