Review scores

In 1995, The Fresno Bee deemed How to Clean Everything the best album released by Fat Wreck Chords.[4] Writing for AllMusic, Mike Daronco, said the album represented an 'Anarchy 101 to a mass audience' and was fun at the same time.[3] In 2016, Ron Knox for Vice Media said the album was designed to challenge listeners.[5]


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.[6]
