12 Essential Office Cleaning Supplies and How to Use Them

Microfiber Cloths

Microfiber cloths are soft, absorbent and lint-free. They are perfect for cleaning glass surfaces and all variety of computer components. To use, dampen the cloth with a cleaning solution or water and wipe the surface from top to bottom until clean. Then use a dry microfiber cloth to buff the entire area. For best results, wash your microfiber cloth regularly in a washing machine without fabric softener.


Vacuum and Broom

A vacuum and broom are essential for quickly cleaning up larger messes, such as food dropped in the breakroom or grit on carpets. Make sure to select a vacuum with a powerful motor, good suction and an adjustable power setting for delicate surfaces. To use, move heavy furniture aside and cover cords and other delicate surface areas before vacuuming. Finally, use a broom to clean exposed areas that may not appear obvious.


Mops are essential for larger areas and deep cleaning unsealed surfaces. When using mops, be sure to select the right type of mop for your flooring material, such as microfiber for tile or laminate, or cotton for hardwood floors. Use a bucket of warm water with an approved mopping solution, wring out excess water and use sparingly on your baseboards and doorways―just a light mist to get rid of dust without wetting the surface.

Disinfectant Spray.

Disinfectant spray is ideal for hard, non-porous surfaces like countertops, doorknobs and light switches. Make sure to read the instructions carefully and choose a product that fits your needs–some disinfectants have a longer residual effect whereas others require leaving on the surface for several minutes. Spray on impacted areas, wait the appropriate time and then wipe off with a clean cloth or paper towel..

All-Purpose Cleaner

All-purpose cleaners are great for wiping down walls, desks, tables, lunchroom counters and storage cabinets. To clean with all-purpose cleaner, squirt or spray a small amount of the product onto a cloth and wipe away dirt, fingerprints and grime. For hard to reach angles and curved surfaces, use a brush to get into nooks and crannies. Be sure to check the label on your specific all-purpose cleaner to make sure it’s safe on the surface you want to clean..
