Scrubbing and wiping down kitchen counters may feel like a tedious yet necessary task. But clean counters can make a world of difference between a tidy kitchen and a messy one, which is why we searched high and low for the absolute best-smelling kitchen counter cleaners so you can enjoy a swoonworthy fragrance while doing chores. Let’s take a look at what we found!

Caldrea Countertop Spray: Juniper Laurel Mint

For tough-to-clean kitchen countertops, like granite, Caldrea’s Countertop Spray is a powerful cleaner with a uniquely scented combination of warm juniper and fresh mint. This seasonal scent comes right in time for cleaning pre-holiday prep and cooking. Made with essential oils and birch bark (to help cut grease), this cleaning spray also works wonders on wood, tile, laminate, and porcelain.

Mrs. Meyer’s Multi-Surface Everyday Cleaner in the calming yet crisp lemon verbena scent is a natural and eco-friendly option to clean your kitchen countertops. While Mrs. Meyer’s cleaning products come in a variety of signature scents like basil and lavender, lemon verbena smells classically fresh and clean. Plus, the multi-surface cleaner can also be used on hardwood floors, tile, and walls.

Capri Blue Multi-Surface Cleaner: Volcano

With its cult following, it’s likely you’ve taken a whiff of Capri Blue’s super-popular volcano-scented candle — a candied yet citrus-infused aroma reminiscent of the tropics.

It’s perfect for keeping kitchen countertops both spotless and fragrant. The scent is so good, reviewers say the “smell of this cleaner makes cleaning (almost) enjoyable!”

Wipe away grime, dirt, and residue from your kitchen countertops with this non-toxic cleaner and leave your kitchen feeling like a rainforest. Created with a plant-based formula powered by coconuts, this cleaner is gentle yet effective on kitchen countertops and other surfaces like wood, glass, and tile. Reduce waste with the company’s eco-friendly carton packaging, and pour the cleaner into a refillable spray bottle.

Real Simple All-Purpose Cleaner: Sweet Orange & Basil

On your next run to The Container Store, grab a bottle of their exclusive Real Simple’s All Purpose Cleaner in sweet orange and basil.
