Whether you just bought a new RV or you have one that you’ve had for a while, you know that keeping it clean while you’re on a trip is not always easy, especially when the family has been on sandy beaches, fishing, riding ATVs in the mud and otherwise having some fun in the dirt. Having the right cleaning supplies with you helps you keep up with the mess.
Find a small vacuum – a canister vacuum takes less space and you can store it in the basement storage. If you have enough closet space, you can get a smaller upright vacuum. Or, better yet, when you buy a new RV, opt for something that has a built in vacuum. If you have tile or linoleum throughout, a broom is handy enough, but if your RV has carpets, a vacuum is a must.
Many RVs have wood trim, a wood entertainment center and wood cabinets. Keep a can of your favorite duster along with some soft rags for dusting. You’ll find it easier to keep up with the dusting when you run a rag over everything every day, especially if you are parked in an area with lots of gravel or it’s so dry the dirt is dusty under the grass.
Keep a couple of different sponges with you. Use a soft sponge with your favorite bath and tile cleaner every day in the shower and the rest of the bathroom to keep from doing a ton of work after soap scum piles up. Keep a sponge with a scrubber in the kitchen area for stubborn pots and pans and to clean up burnt on or baked on messes on the stove and in the oven.
While you’re packing, be sure to have your favorite cleaning supplies on hand including bath and tile cleaner, your favorite bleach spray or wipes, furniture polish, wall cleaner, bathroom cleaner and dish soap.
