Ok well it seems like you have a list of products that you are already going to use, but I might as well post what I use as well.
Remember, that when you are disinfecting, most cleansers must sit for 10 minutes to fully disinfect before you actually clean it. For example, if you wanted to disinfect the kitchen counters with Formula 409, you would spray it, let it sit for 10 minutes, respray and then wipe it clean with a clean paper towel for disinfection. So make sure when buying certain products, look to make sure it says that it is a disinfectant.
Toilets: Lysol Toilet Bowl Cleaner is the best disinfecting toilet cleaner that I have ever used.
Shower/Tub: Original Powdered Comet is the best disinfecting powder with slight abrasion to get out tough stains, but if you have a porcelain bath do not use this. Soft Scrub with bleach is also very good.
Floors, Doors, walls: Pine Sol, a pourable disinfectant that has worked well for me.
Bathroom and Kitchen Sinks: Soft Scrub or Comet as well.
Counters, sinks, Refrigerator, tables, toilet, appliances: Formula
409 is a great disinfectant and cleans well. I also like Clorox disinfecting bathroom cleaner and Lysol antibacterial Kitchen cleaner. All three are spray bottles and have wonderful clean smelling scents.
Glass, stainless steel, mirrors and windows: Windex Original, don't get the ones that smell good. The original is the best.
Furniture polish: Pledge Lemon, if you have wood furniture use Old English.
Hardcore Disinfecting: Bleach, I always disinfect my sponges, toilet scrubbers, brushes, and everything in bleach.
A good Mop and Bucket
A good broom and dustpan
Quality Paper towels, I buy the blue thick ones in the car aisle.
A good toilet brush for each toilet, I like the clorox toilet brushes.
A pack of cheap toothbrushes for cleaning hard places.
A few packs of sponges, I like to use the kind with a green coarse side.
3-4 good quality scrub brushes.
A pack of rubber gloves
A pack of microfiber cloths.
A pack of two of soft rags, make sure to wash these after each use.
So basically all you need to do is put on some music, gather your supplies, and get to work, cleaning from top to bottom. If you make yourself a cleaner with bleach and water, use half water and half bleach in a spray bottle.
After about 2-3 uses of using your mop, scrubbers, toothbrushes, and sponges, fill a 3/4 full with water and pour 1/4 cup of bleach in(maybe a little more), let the ustensils sit for 30 minutes.
Do the same for toilet brushes after every use, and rags also. Except wash the rags in the washer.
Remember, disinfection takes ten minutes of sitting time, then respray and clean. :)
