Creating A Cleaning Bucket

Martha Stewart Living, April 2006

For easier cleaning, fill a bucket with the basics: all-purpose and glass-cleaning sprays, scouring powder or baking soda, sponges, a toothbrush (for crevices), a squeegee, rubber gloves (hang them on the rim to dry), a scrub brush, and terry-cloth towels. You'll have everything you need as you move from room to room. Store it in the closet when you're through, and the bucket will be at the ready the next time the house needs a shine.
