Sure, there are those who love cleaning, but even they and the people who loathe it want it to be as easy as possible. When it comes to the kitchen with all of its spills, grease, and grime, easy cleaning hacks are a must.

Thankfully, content creator Erica Mueller has the perfect cleaning hack that’ll work on your entire kitchen.

According to Mueller, all you need is a dishwashing pod. The small pods you toss into your dishwasher are filled with concentrated cleaner designed to degrease and cut through grime. That makes them not only perfect for cleaning dishes but also for cleaning basically every part of your kitchen in a gentle way.

To use Mueller’s trick, you’ll fill your sink with hot water and allow a pod to dissolve. Then, using a rag or non-abrasive sponge, wipe down your cabinets, backsplash, counters, and baseboards. The soap from the pod should cut right through any stuck dirt.

Snag a large pack to use in your actual dishwasher and your kitchen.

When done, drain your sink and use your rag to wipe it down as well. Rinse, and your whole kitchen is now clean.

If you’ve been looking for an easy way to clean your kitchen, this dishwasher pod hack might be worth a shot. Plus, you might just be able to put those pods to work elsewhere.
