Cleaning supplies aren’t necessarily the first thing you go for when you’re thinking about holiday gifts, but if you know the person well enough to know that such a gift might be appreciated, here are some ideas to get your loved ones started on unfucking their habitat. I wouldn’t recommend giving any cleaning products as a gift to a significant other unless you’ve very specifically discussed it, because no matter how good your intentions, that’s going to land you in a heap of trouble.
The UfYH Starter Kit:
You can clean just about anything with these four products. (Brands aren’t important.) Package them up in a cute wastebasket, mop bucket, or dishpan, and add a few touches for a young adult striking out on their own or a close friend who’s determined to get her mess under control. The whole thing should run you well under $20.
The Shark is a great place to start if steam mopping is new to you.
This is the model I currently have, and I love it.
Other Fun Stuff:
This one comes with a ton of attachments, and lets you clean just about anything using only steam.
I know it’s a little Kim and Aggie of me, but I love customized rubber gloves. I’ve made (much less professional-looking) pairs with some fun duct tape and glue-on trim.(Amazon prices subject to change.)
