Oh, what a year it has been!
Twenty-twenty is a year we will never forget. It is difficult to remember a time when we were more anxious to see the calendar flip to a new year. But before we do, we wanted to take one last, brief look back at the year that was for Speed Cleaning™. In 2020, we saw a renewed emphasis on the importance of cleaning and sanitizing. “Clean” and “healthy”, in many ways, became synonymous. Cleaning professionals received a new addition to their job description: “Essential”. The Top 10 Speed Cleaning™ products of 2020 include a mixture of historically popular products and several new additions that reflect how our lives changed during a pandemic.
The Top 10
Red Juice is the all-time best selling Speed Cleaning™ product since The Clean Team Catalog was first launched in 1989. In fact, it is so popular it makes this list twice (concentrate and ready-to-use)!
Speed Cleaning™ aprons are another all-time best-seller. Our exclusive Cleaning Apron is the first and most important secret to getting housecleaning over with quickly- the ultimate cleaning tool belt. Specialized pockets and loops mean everything you need is right there with you.
It is difficult to imagine Red Juice Concentrate consistently maintaining the #1 spot without the mixing bottles used to make the Ready-to-Use Red Juice also making the Top 10.
Cheaper than paper towels and easier to sanitize and re-use than sponges, our Cotton Cleaning Cloths are another stalwart for cleaning professionals. In 2020, this item increased in popularity as disposable alternatives became increasingly more difficult to find in stores.
Once COVID-19 hit our shores, it seemingly took all of 30 seconds for there to be a shortage of effective disinfectants available. We’ll long remember the images of empty grocery store shelves and all of the news stories questioning what worked and what didn’t. Therefore, it is no surprise that the Sani-Spritz Spray makes this list despite not even being in the catalog the entire year.
Perhaps one of the most under-rated cleaning tools used by professionals is the toothbrush. If you haven’t added one to your tool kit yet, read our article “20 Unique Ways a Toothbrush Can Help You Clean Your Home”.
Extra mixing bottles are always handy to have around. Its no coincidence that this item grew in popularity just as store shelves emptied and it became increasingly more difficult to find many cleaning supplies.
Unofficially known as the Red Juice Starter Kit, Red Juice makes its 2nd appearance on the list except this time bundled with a mixing bottle.
Effective cleaning is in the details and the Speed Cleaning™ Whisk Broom is the ultimate tool for getting into those hard to reach places.
Stuck-on scale and hard-water deposits can test even the most seasoned cleaner. The environmentally friendly Scum Bum is absolutely the best solution that gently dissolves even the toughest scale, mineral deposits, hard water stains and soap scum. It even removes mold and mildew!
