My Go-To Supplies for a Clean Kitchen

After we finished our kitchen remodel, my daughter joked that I’ll spend more time cleaning the kitchen than cooking in it. She was right, but not because it’s constantly dirty – just because it’s so pretty, that I’m obsessed with keeping it spotless! Today I’m sharing my go-to supplies for a clean kitchen, and sharing tips for keeping it clean without a lot of effort.

I'm sharing my daily and deep cleaning secrets and supplies for a clean kitchen! This is what I use to clean my stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and white granite sink.

The old version of our kitchen constantly felt dirty and dingy, simply because it was dark – dark cabinets, dark linoleum countertops, dark brown granite sink, and the lighting was horrible, too, which didn’t help.

When we remodeled, we swapped out the linoleum for gorgeous white & grey granite, so I had to learn how to keep granite clean. We also swapped out our dark brown sink for a white one. In case you missed the memo, we’re sweet tea drinkers, and tea poured into a white sink can stain, so I had to figure out how to keep the sink clean, too!


I’ve tried quite a few cleansers, and have finally found a set of cleansers that work perfectly for the jobs I need done. Here’s my list of cleansers and what I use them for. The links to purchase these products through Amazon are my affiliate links. {You can read my full disclosure here.}

#1: Method Daily Granite

This is my favorite cleaner ever! I use this every day or two on all of my granite countertops and it leaves them super clean and reflective like glass. I clear off the countertops, spray the cleanser, and wipe it up with a paper towel. BUY IT HERE: Method Daily Granite Cleaner

#2: Bar Keeper’s Friend Spray + Foam Cleaner

We have a white granite sink, which I love, but to keep it nice and white, I clean it with Bar Keeper’s Friend Spray + Foam Cleaner. After a couple days of rinsing dishes with food on them, or glasses with tea left in them, the granite can become a bit dingy, so I spray the foam, let it sit for about 30 seconds or so, then scrub with a non-abrasive sponge.

#3: Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Multi-Surface Everyday Cleaner

This is the cleaner I reach for when there are little spills or spots to clean up, like cleaning the stove top after cooking. It even smells good, like a fresh clean, not a chemical clean. BUY IT HERE: Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Multi-Surface Everyday Cleaner

This is also what I use as the first step in cleaning my stainless steel fridge. I give it a good clean with Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day using a microfiber cloth (that’s the key to a streak-free shine!), and scrub any spots or food spills. Then I finish cleaning my fridge with #4 on the list…

#4: Pledge Dust & Allergen

After I clean the fridge with Meyer’s Clean Day, I grab a clean microfiber cloth and give it a good polish with Pledge. It’s super shiny!

A dark, cramped kitchen gets a gorgeous rustic & contemporary kitchen makeover and the results are unbelievable! What a transformation! Gorgeous navy blue cabinets, granite, barnwood on the walls - so many details and it's all perfection!

I also use Pledge Dust & Allergen and a microfiber cloth to wipe down my navy blue lower cabinets and inside my white upper cabinets. BUY IT HERE: Pledge Dust & Allergen

BUY THEM HERE: Microfiber Cleaning Cloths


Leave it to Joanna Gaines to provide a really simple & effective method for cleaning the microwave! I have scrubbed and scrubbed and could not get our microwave truly clean until I used Joanna’s method that I read about in the spring 2017 issue of The Magnolia Journal.

Joanna Gaines shared a simple & effective way to clean your microwave in the Spring 2017 issue of The Magnolia Journal. I tried it - it works like a dream! I recommend using lemon essential oil for that fresh, clean smell, too!

This cleaning method works like a dream! Baked on crud that wouldn’t come out even with the use of bleach cleansers wiped right off with a paper towel. And it’s stayed clean, almost like it repels food.

So there you have it, my go-to supplies for a clean kitchen. Do you have anything to add? What supplies do you absolutely love?
