Natural ways to tackle home messes in 60 seconds or less.

How to Clean Your Toilet

According to a 2011 study conducted by NSF International, 27% of toilet seats and 14% of toilet handles contained alarmingly high amounts of mold, yeast, and germs.

Pro tip:

When it's time to clean your toilet, it is possible to avoid wasteful paper towels. Just don't reach for a sponge, which can breed icky bacteria. We suggest using a microfiber cloth instead, then tossing it in the wash.

How to Clean Tile and Grout in Your Bathtub

Mold will grow in 100% of showers that don't receive regular cleaning. It doesn't look pretty, but more importantly, it can also increase risk for certain medical conditions.

Pro tip:

A quick clean after using the shower can keep unhealthy molds and mildew at bay. Cut down on time and use a natural shower spray that works without wiping.

How to Deep Clean Your Refrigerator

One in three Grove customers tell us the kitchen is the #1 room in their home that needs deep cleaning.

Pro tip:

We recommend giving your fridge a top-down, inside-out, front-to-back scrubbing at least twice a year. For regular upkeep, compost anything you're not going to eat each week and quickly swipe out any stray crumbs (we're looking at you, crisper drawer).

How to Clean and Maintain Your Dishwasher

100% of dishwashers contain microorganisms. Most won't harm you, but they can cause smells and decrease dishwasher performance.

Pro tip:

Your dishwasher needs a deep clean every month to prevent bacteria build-up and blockages. Most dishwashers have a filter beneath the bottom rack. If you've never cleaned it, take a look now. Don't panic! A quick rinse and it'll be good as new.

How to Deep Clean Your Oven

If you smell something burning when you turn your oven on, it probably needs a deep clean.

Pro tip:

Plan ahead! Deep cleaning your oven is an overnight job. The good news? You can sleep while baking soda and vinegar do the hard work.
