Cleaning the kitchen is a necessary counterpart to cooking. Some of us enjoy cleaning the kitchen more than others — but even if you hate it, you've probably found one or two tools or products that make it just a bit easier. What are your totally essential, indispensable kitchen cleaning products? A scent of Mrs. Meyer's dish soap? A certain brand of dish scrubber or towel? White vinegar? Tell us your most indispensable kitchen cleaning products; we're always looking for ways to make the job a bit easier.
My own indispensable tool is this scrub brush. I love it for cleaning countertops and even my table. It will scrub away caked-on goo and hardened batter, but without the abrasiveness of steel wool or plastic scrubbers. It works incredibly well. Old-fashioned tools are often the best, and this updated brush (it fits snugly in the palm of your hand) is a modernized version of a classic.
