Does the mere thought of cleaning already tire you out? Tbh, same. Most of the time, even mentally preparing yourself to tidy up every nook and cranny of your space can be a chore—tedious and taxing. But once you’ve found your productive groove, say by starting with your bedroom first, you’ll easily find yourself whisking away from one area to another with montage-like ease. 

The secret to getting your cleaning rhythm going is having the proper toolkit of products that’ll help you get the job done as quickly and as seamlessly as possible. With thorough and easy-to-use cleaners and tools, you’ll barely break a sweat in the entire process. Trust us. 

Ahead are six essentials that any successful household should always have—from cleaning tools and supplies to daily drivers that’ll keep your home, condo, or apartment up and running.

An all-around vacuum

Lugging a traditional corded vacuum cleaner is no way to clean these days. As the act of vacuuming is already a hassle in itself, lightweight and maneuverable cordless models are the way to go. After you make that switch and upgrade to cordless, it’ll be hard to think how you ever managed to get by without one. 

There’s no shortage of cordless vacuum options in the market today, but if you’re eyeing one that’s pocket-friendly without sacrificing the cleaning and suction power of a corded variant, we’re highly recommending Dreame. This brand’s actually a part of the Xiaomi chain (yes, that smartphone brand we all know!) and is its leading enterprise for smart household cleaning appliances. 

The Dreame T10 Cordless Stick Vacuum “makes cleaning simple” according to the brand. It’s exceptionally versatile thanks to its five multiple attachments that’ll allow you to clean your space from top to bottom. It comes with a roller brush for different floor types, a crevice brush for nooks and crannies, an extension rod for high areas, a mini motorized brush for beds and couches, and a 2-in-1 brush for other cleaning needs. 

Shop the sleek, lightweight, and intelligently designed Dreame T10 Cordless Stick Vacuum at 14% less via the SM Malls Online app, now only P11,920 from its original sticker price of P11,990. 

Not quite ready to shell out that much? A more affordable but equally remarkable option is the Dreame V10 Cordless Stick Vacuum, which retails for P8,790 (before P9,990) via the SM Malls Online app. That’s 9% off! 

The V10 features stronger suction with an enhanced turbo motor and a longer run time in ‘strong mode’ versus its predecessors. FYI—Dreame has three cleaning modes in standard, efficient, and strong. It also sports an adaptable air-cooling system and highly effective HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filtration system that cleans air for a safer environment. 

A humidifier

Speaking of air, a humidifier adds moisture to indoor air to prevent it from becoming uncomfortably dry. ICYDK—dry air can shrink wood frames and leather and can also exacerbate respiratory problems. So, having one or two (perhaps one in your living area or bedroom) is most welcome. 

Get the Surplus Fresh Air Glossy Ultrasonic Humidifier 300ml (Black) via the SM Malls Online app at 63% off, now only P749 from P1,999. Touch-sensitive and with four color-changing lights, this humidifier may help ease symptoms caused by flu and the common cold as well as relieve nasal congestion, allergy, and asthma symptoms. 

A purifier

While a humidifier helps manage humidity levels in your space, an air purifier promises to eliminate dust, toxins, bacteria, and allergens from the air. It removes unpleasant odors and smoke, too. 

Shop the Surplus Fresh Air Revitalizer and Purifier Wood Combination (Light Brown) at 55% off (now only P449 from P999) via the SM Malls Online app. Compact and comes with a multicolor LED display, this purifier can handle water-based essential oils to not only purify air but keep your home smelling fresh, too. 

An insect killer

A household that’s spick and span is free of bugs and insects. So, a topnotch bug zapper that kills mosquitoes, flies, and other flying insects that are attracted to UV light should be present within your premises. 

Place the Daimaru Insect Killer BT-2X10W from Ace Hardware near the entrance of your doors and windows to effectively zap pesky and disease-bearing insects. But make sure to keep it away by at least 0.3 meters from your walls. 

Shop this model via the SM Malls Online app for 25% less—only P1,119.20 from 1,499. Ideal for mosquito control, this is one of the most low-maintenance, convenient, and safest repellents that’s easy to clean and handle. 

A rechargeable fan

When the harsh summer heat has you struggling, a rechargeable and portable fan can definitely help—especially when you don’t want to crank up the AC and be met with an exorbitant electric bill at the end of the month. 

Cool down with the Firefly FEL-654 7" Rechargeable Fan with Night Light from Ace Hardware for only P599 from P999.75 (that’s 40% off!) via the SM Malls Online app. This portable cooler also comes with six pieces of SMD LED emergency lights in case of power outages, which basically occur during hot summers due to overloaded power grids. 

It has whisper-quiet blades, a three-speed air control, and a single switch. You can charge it with a USB charging cable that’s included in the package, and it also works on an AC power supply.

Avoid the stressful pitfalls of home cleaning and keep your space running smoothly and efficiently with the key items presented above. These must-haves will make managing your household feel like a joy rather than a boring chore.
