    15 Products You Need To Deep Clean Your Entire Kitchen

    Yes, even under your fridge 🤢.

    1. A pack of dishwasher-cleaning tablets because (to my shock and horror) you have to clean the thing that cleans your dishes, and these tablets make doing so as quick and easy as...well...running the dishwasher.

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing! I used it in my dishwasher. Had standing water on the bottom, dropped one tablet in the water. Put it on light wash cycle and at the end of the cycle, the water was gone! It thoroughly cleans and I have not had any other problems. I now use it regularly. I recommend this highly to keep your dishwasher clean and eliminate clogs from buildup. It was recommended to me by my super and after my positive experience I am happy to cosign his recommendation." —cheapchicshopper

    2. A fume-free oven cleaner to get your oven looking like new by cutting through tough, baked-on grease and stubborn stains without making your home smell like a vat of chemicals.

    Promising review: "I'm a little embarrassed to write this review. It's been ~six years since my last oven cleaning. After seeing the results, I couldn't help but spread the word. Sure, it took some beer, a little John Mayer, and a lot of elbow grease, but I got the job done thanks to this handy little product. It did require two treatments; however, given the circumstances, this product accomplished quite a feat in just an hour. The attached pictures speak for themselves." —William Fredericks

    Get it from Amazon for $6.27.

    3. Or an all-natural oven scrub so you can watch the burnt-on splatters from dinners past vanish before your eyes with zero wait time required.

    Everneat is a Fairfield, Connecticut-based Etsy shop that specializes in natural and eco-friendly cleaning products.

    Promising review: "This product is amazing! It works fast with pretty minimal elbow grease. The stainless-steel sponge that comes with it makes it easier. And it smells great!" —Melissa C.

    Get it from Everneat on Etsy for $19.99+ (available in two packaging styles and in three scents).

    4. A plant-based stainless steel cleaner that'll get rid of (and prevent) the streaks, smudges, and grubby fingerprints that are keeping your appliances from living up to the "stainless" in stainless steel.

    It also comes with a microfiber cleaning cloth!

    Promising review: "We got this product because, while stainless steel appliances look so nice when you first get them, as soon as you start using them you get fingerprints galore. All of the 'home remedy' tricks we tried were annoying, or so labor-intensive as to be overly frustrating, so this product has been wonderful. It takes only a few minutes to clean all the appliances and make them look brand-new again — great for when company comes over and you want to pretend like you always live in a magazine spread for a home rather than the comfortable way you normally do :-)" —Anton Stocker

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95.

    5. A pack of biodegradable foaming drain-cleaning pouches for taking care of that awful stench and the out-of-sight grime living in your garbage disposal with essentially zero effort.

    Promising review: "These are amazing! I was skeptical at first but I followed the directions (which are super easy) and was grossed out and satisfied at the same time to see the gunk that was removed. You put the entire packet down your disposal (I read that twice too) and magic happens in under two minutes! That is what I call powerful and successful cleaning! The scent is super clean and light with a hint of lemon. These will definitely be a cleaning staple for me." —KPITT

    Get a two-pack (good for eight uses) from Amazon for $9.30

    6. A versatile Pink Stuff multi-purpose cleaner if you're looking to invest in one product that's incredibly tough on stains and is safe to use on just about any hard surface in your home.

    Promising review: "I would have taken a picture but I used it all. I had old buildup of oil on my kitchen walls and I sprayed this on it with a little Zep degreaser and, bam, it was gone, and my kitchen looks like it did when I first moved in. The walls are pristine and quite delightful to gaze upon. I will buy this product again and I do recommend this product for cleaning anything that has been stained for years. Enjoy your purchase." —Delores J

    Get it from Amazon for $9.75

    7. A nonscratch cooktop cleaning kit because you don't trust those mystery stains on your ceramic cooktop, and this kit has everything you need to take your stove from always vaguely greasy to ~glowing~.

    The full kit contains a 10-ounce bottle of the cooktop cleaning solution, one cleaning pad, a grip pad tool, and a scraper.

    Promising review: "Cerama Bryte was the brand my grandmother recommended using and grandmas are always right! The extra scrape-y tool is a lifesaver for tough splatters. The cleaner and scrubber themselves work wonderfully. After using this, our stove looks sparkling like new again!" —britt

    Get it from Amazon for $11.79.

    8. An extra-long under-appliance duster to make routinely cleaning under your appliances a reality that doesn't involve waiting for a small army to come help you move your fridge. 

    Promising review: "I use this under all my appliances and it works great. It fits under my fridge, freezer, range, washer, and dryer, and then I just vacuum it off and done! I also use it on my wooden blinds — just slant them all down and run this over them and poof — clean. Works great!" —CM 

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95

    9. Or a flexible vent-cleaning kit that attaches to your vacuum to suck trapped dust and dirt from the narrowest of crevices. It's primarily meant for sucking lint out of dryer vents, but reviewers say it's always great for cleaning out fridge coils, under appliances, and other tough-to-reach areas in the kitchen.

    The entire set comes with a plastic hose, a Holikme adapter, and a vacuum hose for use with most any vacuum. Plus, a flexible lint brush!

    Promising review: "I love this tool! I cleaned out the lint trap in my dryer and was amazed at how much came out. I empty it every time I do a load! It’s amazing what gets past the trap!! It was so amazing that I decided to try it out under the fridge! We have two dogs, it’s amazing what came out from under it! I’ve already told all my family and friends it’s a must-have!" —Tracy 

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95+ (available in three colors).

    10. A conditioning wood polish so you can revive tired cabinets, floors, and furniture with a nourishing mix of carnauba wax and beeswax that protects wood while hiding dings and scratches. 

    Promising review: "I was a bit skeptical but after reading the reviews I had to try this. Let me tell you: It does exactly as it states on the product bottle. This is literally the best wood restoration I have ever used! Hands down. I used it on my kitchen cabinets and they look so rich and beautiful. A few had really faded due to the heat from the dishwasher, but it totally brought the newness back!! It literally is an awesome product." —Claudette

    Get it from Amazon for $7.50.

    11. A microfiber EasyWring spin mop with a hands-free wringer for a quicker, easier clean. If that wasn't exciting enough, this mop is designed to get into tight corners *and* is made with microfiber fabric that is machine washable and able to trap dirt with just plain ole water — no chemical cleaners needed.

    Promising review: "It is easy to use. Easy to store. When you have an animal, this is what you need to keep hardwood and kitchen vinyl clean without a big fuss. The mop handle retracts for compact storage and the mop head snaps easily in place. It puts the old mop system to shame." —Martin 

    Get it from Amazon for $32.97

    12. An electric power scrubber if you're serious about revitalizing that dirty tile grout. This gadget is equipped with an oscillating brush head that scrubs 60 times per SECOND. AKA much faster than your human hands can scrub.

    Bonus — batteries are included! For more details, read my colleague Natalie Brown's full Rubbermaid Reveal Power Scrubber review.

    Promising review: "This thing is amazing! It cleans grout and hard water stains with ease! I just cleaned the tile in my kitchen and look at the difference! I simply heated up a 50/50 solution of vinegar and Dawn, sprayed it on, then let this thing do the scrubbing for me! The whole kitchen took 10 minutes!" —Jc

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    13. A set of microfiber cloths because why bother cleaning if the glass is just going to look foggy, anyway? These cleaning cloths will make sure your hard work doesn't go to waste with a 100% lint- and streak-free finish, and are equally great for general dusting.

    They're great for windows or any glassware, too!

    Promising review: "I’ve tried everything to clean these glass pendant lights. The grease from the kitchen just gets on them and using regular cleaning liquids just smears it. I was very doubtful in using these towels but decided to give it a shot. With water ONLY these lights were cleaned in the matter of minutes. I would def recommend these towels." —The Muryns

    Get a pack of eight from Amazon for $16.98.

    14. A deep-clean detail brush set so you can retire that old, feeble toothbrush and get at stove grates, burner caps, and tight corners with nonslip grip handles and heavy-duty nylon scrubbing bristles.

    Promising review: "Today I cleaned my kitchen like it had never been cleaned before. These tools came in especially handy with the stove. There are so many intricate and hard to reach areas where grease has accumulated. I'll never do without these in the future!" —Jim Carter

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99

    15. An Angry Mama microwave cleaner that, when filled with vinegar and water and popped in the microwave, will get so mad she'll have to blow off some steam and get your microwave squeaky clean in the process.
