When was the last time you cleaned your coffee maker? Scrubbed your stovetop? Freshened up your fridge? Don’t worry, we’re not here to call you out or make you feel guilty. We understand that while deep cleaning is stress relief for some, it can be extremely boring and time-consuming for others. Well, great news for all involved – now that our new cleaning collection launched at Walmart, everyone can start cleaning smarter, not harder and feel more inspired along the way. But before we dive into our tips for deep cleaning your kitchen, here are some brand-new storage solutions from our collection you’ll want on hand to keep your products organized and easy to grab:

Your Coffee Maker:

You don’t have to be a coffee “snob” to agree that coffee tastes better when it comes from a clean machine. The easiest way to clean a standard coffee pot is as follows: 

  1. Fill the pot ¾ of the way with boiling hot water. 
  2. Grab a dishwasher pod from our dishwasher pod holder (which we’re sure will change your life just as it’s changed ours), cut the pod at the corner, and drop in the pot of boiling water. 
  3. Let it sit overnight. In the morning, rinse out the pot a few times with warm water, and wipe down with a microfiber towel. 

As for cleaning other coffee makers, we suggest checking the instruction manual, which, side note, you shouldn’t have the physical copy of anymore. Just google it, y’all! Modern technology means less paper clutter. Let’s be grateful! 

Your Surfaces:

Just admit it: Nothing is more satisfying than wiping down a countertop. In fact, it’s our favorite party activity. While everyone else is chatting and catching up, we’re on countertop and coaster duty. Anyone else, or just us? Anyway, if you really want your surfaces to sparkle in a way that even your mother-in-law can appreciate, your approach should depend on the material itself. 

On all surfaces, it helps to start off with a pre-clean using an all-purpose microfiber cloth to sweep away any crumbs into a dustpan. 

  • Wood, Marble, Granite, Quartz & Laminate: 

Grab a microfiber cloth and dampen it with some warm water.  Add a dime-sized amount of dish soap and lather. As you are wiping down, you’ll know when it’s time to add more soap when you stop seeing bubbles. Once you are finished, do one more pass over the countertop with a fresh damp cloth to remove any soap residue. 

*PSA: Never use dish soap or cleaner that contains citrus on marble or granite as it may cause discoloration! 

  • Butcher Block: 

Because butcher block countertops are usually made of unfinished wood and double as a food prep station, cleaning with dish soap and a warm damp cloth is also recommended here. But when it comes to removing stains, which butcher block countertops are sensitive to, you’ll want to do the following: 

  1. Wipe away any crumbs with a microfiber cloth
  2. Sprinkle salt over the surface of the stain.
  3. Cut a lemon in half and scrub it over the stain.
  4. Let it sit for a few minutes. 
  5. Use a damp warm microfiber cloth to wipe away salt and lemon residue.
  6. Wipe dry with a clean microfiber cloth. 
  7. For tough stains or grime, repeat the process.
  • Backsplash & Tile:

Spray some non-abrasive tile cleaner and use our soft-bristled scrub brush to work messes free from the grout. Wipe down the tile and polish with a microfiber cloth. So easy, right?

  • Stainless Steel:

Grab a stainless steel cleaner and spray on surfaces. Use our soft bristled brush to scrub down any stubborn spots. Wipe down with a microfiber cloth for a streak-free finish. To treat rust, apply a paste of water and baking soda, and scrub with the same brush in a circular motion. Let the paste sit for one hour before wiping away. You can use this same technique to clean a stainless steel fridge and stove top. 

Your Microwave:

Ready for this one? Deep cleaning your microwave is as easy as filling a microwave-safe bowl with 1 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of vinegar, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or 2-3 tablespoons of baking soda to loosen the grime and neutralize any smells. Microwave this concoction for up to five minutes and allow the bowl to cool before removing. Wipe down the microwave with a damp microfiber cloth, and surprise, you’re done! 

Your Oven:

Once again, dish soap and a microfiber cloth are here to save the day! First, you’ll want to remove the metal racks – those are easier to wipe down in the sink. Next, brush away any food remnants using our brush and dustpan set. Take a damp wet cloth with dish soap and do a full scrub down. For extra stubborn gunk, apply a baking soda paste with a bristle brush in a circular motion.

Your Fridge:

A messy fridge can be a mysterious place. Who knows what you’ll find lurking behind those condiment bottles, eek! The best line of defense is focusing on the offense. Wait, did we just make a sports reference? Look at us! Anyway, back to the task at hand: Start by putting on your favorite podcast and emptying everything out of the fridge. Keep a trash can nearby and check expiration dates as you go. Once your fridge is completely empty, wipe down every shelf and drawer with a damp warm cloth and dish soap. Do another pass with a fresh cloth to remove any soap residue. Once clean, add your bins and food back in. Don’t have organization bins for the fridge? Grab them here.

Your Floors:

Here’s what we’ve learned: Having to search through a cluttered closet to find a broom (that may or may not fall on your foot at some point) is one of the main reasons people hate to clean their floors. You are stressed before even cleaning the mess! To solve this, we created our very own broom closet organizer to keep mops and brooms off the floor and easy to access. The solution is easy to install on the back of any door or wall, and can be customized to fit your needs. 

We also designed the mops and brooms in our collection to save you time and make storage easier. Our dustpan set includes a rubber lip on the front edge and teeth near the handle so you can scoop up every last crumb then clean the brush without much effort. And our Angled Broom? It’s perfect for getting in those deep awkward corners, because what’s more annoying than chasing after a small crumb? For an even deeper clean, we have our Twist Mop with a head that can be popped off and thrown in the washing machine post-clean. See, easier already!
