Better Basics

BRUSHES WITH GREATNESS

Get dishes squeaky-clean and make quick work of hard-to-scrub items, like reusable straws and water bottles, with Bürstenhaus Redecker and Crate & Barrel tools. They're eco-friendly and crafted from natural materials. From $5 each, surlatable.com; crateandbarrel.com.

WONDER WIPES

You'll go through fewer paper towels with Libman Wonderfiber cloths on hand. The moisture-wicking fabric grabs crumbs, swipes up smears, and keeps surfaces shiny. $4.75 for 2, walmart.com.

THE RIGHT RACK

Proof that there's always room for innovation: The sleek Yamazaki Tosca dish rack fits neatly over a sink or on a counter in its tray. $70, crateandbarrel.com.

STELLAR SCRUBBERS

Durable copper Bürstenhaus Redecker pot cleaners gently remove tough food without chemicals. (They're safe for everything but nonstick cookware.) From $10 each, lehmans.com.

AN INFINITE LOOP

The continuous Ancient Industries towel and roller are always at the ready and look neat and even, like a well-behaved tea towel. $20 and $45, ancientindustries.com. To clean, just slip the towel off its notched wooden bar.

COMPACT COMPOSTER

Its walnut shell, removable insert, and tight-fitting stainless steel lid make the Alabama Sawyer Petite Noaway compost bin perfect for a countertop. $145, alasaw.com.

A PADDED PERCH

Cooking and cleanup duty feel much easier on your feet when you stand on a cushy, stain-resistant GelPro mat. From $50, gelpro.com.

Hardworking Helpers

A RESILIENT RUG

The bold Mediterranean print and practical vinyl surface of a Beija Flor mat bring style into the spill zone. From $82, beijaflorworld.com.

THE MODERN BREAD BOX

Stash a few loaves in a Monika Lubkowska-Jonas bin, then flip the lid for an instant cutting board with crumb-catching grooves. $125, store.moma.org.

A MAGNETIC MOP

The vibrant, shaggy wool fibers on a Sladust Big Wooly mop aren't just for looks; the lanolin they contain is naturally talented at attracting and grabbing debris. $35, sla-dust.com.

A LEAVE-IT-OUT LADDER

Don't put this baby in the corner-or the closet. The Lucano three-step stool (shown in Mint Green) is pretty enough to hang on a wall. $149, wayfair.com.

THE FRESH-PICK PROTECTOR

A removable, machine-washable bamboo liner in this Windy Willow Farm bag keeps produce crisper longer. From $23, windywillowfarm.net.

A BETTER BUCKET

The elongated shape of the Casabella four-gallon bucket allows for effortless dunking and fits like a Tetris piece under your sink. $10, casabella.com. A rimmed top helps wet hands get a grip.

SUSTAINABLE SPONGES

Inject a little fun into daily dishwashing with playful, pop-up Sqwishful scrubbers-and when they wear out, you can compost them. $6 for 3, sqwishful.com.

THE CRANNY CLEANER

A telescoping tip lets the small but mighty Black + Decker lithium handheld vacuum reach under the fridge and around pets' bowls. $60, target.com.
