A good all-purpose cleaners can change your life. Wine spills on the coffee table? Oily stovetops? Studio desks with all sorts of leftover stains from paints? The multi-purpose cleaner rises to the occasion. You’ll still want a targeted cleaner for heavy-duty cleaning of things like glass or toilets, but a handy multi-surface solution can make housekeeping much much easier.
