How to Clean Everything is the first album by the punk rock band Propagandhi, released in 1993.

In 2006, the album was ranked as the highest rated punk album of 1993 on Sputnikmusic.[2] Vocalist Chris Hannah said about the album:

I dig it. We still play songs from that record. When I hear them and I play them, the message still resonates with me and I can see the 20 year old Chris writing those songs. It’s still fun, I still get a kick out of it. When we play them these days, they seem seamless in the set, with the new songs. There’s a bit of a difference in terms of the depth and dimension, but they’re still fun to play.

I just don’t like when I hear that record, like when I hear that actual record, that recording. That moment in time. I’m just like, "Jesus Christ, turn that fucking thing off". But I don’t regret it. I’m not trying to hide that record from people. I just can’t lie to people and tell them we’re going to make another How to Clean Everything.[3]

On August 20, 2013, the album was re-released via Fat Wreck, on CD, green vinyl, and light blue/white vinyl with the songs "Pigs Will Pay", "Homophobes Are Just Mad Cause They Can't Get Laid" and "Leg-Hold Trap", plus four original demos.
