Much like a mechanic’s toolbox, each cleaner’s supply kit will vary. The following supply list is a starting point to expand upon as you determine more specific items to fit your needs.
Top supplies to clean your Airbnb rental include:
Mop (traditional or Swiffer type)
You may choose to store these supplies at your property so that guests can easily clean up spills or other messes made during their stay. If you prefer to not implement Airbnb guest cleaning expectations, these basic supplies are crucial for completing thorough turnovers.
Top Airbnb Cleaning Supplies by Room
Once you have your essential supplies stocked, you may choose to invest in additional cleaning tools and equipment to help make vacation rental cleaning more efficient and effective. Below, learn some of our top Airbnb cleaning supplies for each room of your property.
Best Tools for the Bathroom
Airbnb bathrooms collect dust, hair, and other dirt and bacteria. It’s imperative to clean your bathrooms with the utmost attention to detail. No guest after a long day of travel wants to step into a shower or tub with grime and soap scum.
OXO Deep Clean Brush Set
Since most bathrooms have tiles on the floor and/or in the shower, tackling the grout is a must while cleaning. The OXO Deep Clean Brush comes in a set of two, a large brush and a small brush. The bristles are perfect for handling grout in the bathroom and stovetops in the kitchen.
Pair it with The Pink Stuff miracle cleaning paste to fully remove dirt or grime from any surface. The Pink Stuff uses all-natural, vegan ingredients, so there is also no worry about harsh chemicals while you clean.
Sprayway Glass Cleaner
Bathroom mirrors attract streaks and water stains with each guest’s stay, and Sprayway Glass Cleaner is the perfect product to achieve that sparkling reflection. Although the product says “glass cleaner,” the ammonia-free spray is perfect for mirrors as well.
This product is also helpful to clean windows and screens on TVs and computers, so use this product in every room of your short-term rental. Pair it with a microfiber cloth to minimize the chances of getting any lint or streaks on the surfaces you’re cleaning.
Mr. Clean Magic Eraser
The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser is perfect for erasing built-up grime on bathtubs and shower walls. To use a Magic Eraser, just soak it in water and it’s good to go for tackling any surface.
Best Tools for the Kitchen
Many travelers opt for vacation rentals because they have kitchens, but Airbnb kitchens can easily become dirty from cooking and eating. The cleaning supplies below are versatile and can also be used beyond this room in the house.
