Inquiring minds wanted to know: What products and supplies get the Food52 Team jazzed about cleaning? (Full disclosure: No minds actually inquired, but we’re going to tell you anyway.)
I polled the Food52 team and these are their A-Team picks for cleaning tools, general cleaners, and laundry—a mix of tools from our Shop and solutions you can pick up on the way home tonight.
Note: I first heard of BKF in college. I’d just moved into my first real apartment with four other girls and our mothers were appalled at the state our shabby digs. The Texan mother of the bunch introduced us to the miracle powder: Mix it with water, scrub on the walls, and just like that, the dingy spot was as white as if you’d just painted it. (Of course she knew about this. Texan moms know everything, know how to do everything, and then actually do everything.)
One request from a team member plagued with clothing wrinkles: “If someone would please suggest the best affordable clothing iron or steamer I would be ever grateful.” Let us know of any good ones, and your favorite cleaning products, in the comments.
