I have been working on a Magento 2 site build and have the sample data-installed, which has been useful for layout and theme updates that I needed to make.

I would like to know if there is clean-up script/method available for removing Magento 2 sample data now that it has served its purpose.

Any help/guidance would be greatly appreciated!

  • Hi Baber, found a solution yet? I am also looking for a way to clean up test product data (not just the sample data from Magento) So if you found a solution, please let me know! – Dennis van Schaik Jun 19 '16 at 19:51

There is a command to remove the sample data you installed before: sampledata:remove.

More information can be found in here: http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.0/install-gde/install/sample-data-other-cmds.html.
