    Emma Lord / Via BuzzFeed

    "An embarrassing confession: I do not have a pet, but I shed like nobody's business. My hair gets so ingrained in the carpet that a vacuum truly does nothing for it, so I often was just unrooting clumps of hair from the floor with my hands (sorry for the visual). I bought this broom, and it immediately started pulling it up GOBS of hair. My carpet, like, genuinely changed colour (turns out the pink was supposed to be much pinker, whoops). Anyway, do with that semi-horrifying information what you will." —Emma Lord

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    This baby will save you from getting down on your hands and knees to scrub down your toilet bowl because it does the work with every flush. Using it is simple: load the gel cartridge into the stamper and click the button to apply the gel sticker to your toilet bowl. It's actually really satisfying to use and I'm happy to report it works, too! It keeps my toilet smelling fresh and saves me from having to scrub away gross build-up on the bowl, meaning I have one less chore to do every week. Each pack comes with six stamps and each stamp lasts about 12 days.

For super stubborn messes, you can scrape off build up with the razor.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    It comes with cleaning solution, a razor, and a scrubbing tool. I own this stuff and it works actually magic on stuck-on food and oil splatters. I've seriously never seen my burners look cleaner than they do after using this stuff, and I'm so happy it doesn't cost a fortune (but I'd buy it even if it did).

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $9.99. Also available in multipacks.

    I've been fostering a puppy and this has really helped manage the messes she makes around the house. She's peed on the couch and carpeted stairs a few times and this stuff is a real and true lifesaver. It leaves everything smelling fresh and eliminates dark circles around accidents, too.

    They're great for messes in microwaves, stoves, bathrooms, and pretty much everywhere else in your home. I recently dyed my hair and, because I'm messy, got splotches all over my sink, floor, and walls. You know what helped me get rid of all those unwanted marks? One of these babies.

    Alice Prendergast/BuzzFeed

    "I have a dog that sheds, and about a billion blankets that also shed. While those things are great for me, they are not great for my couch. I bought this lil' doodad to help me de-fluff and remove all the annoying pills from my sofa, and boy does it ever work. It has a razor head on one end (along with three interchangeable razors of varying intensities) that I use to scrape away pills, and a classic velvety lint brush on the other. It's worked serious wonders on my furniture and I've even moved on to brushing down my crewneck collection with it."

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $19.99+. Available in five colours.

    34. A bottle of discaling solution that'll cleanse your coffee machine of all the grossness that's built up inside of it (you can't see it, but it's there). Reviewers say that it makes their appliances work like new and that their java actually tastes better after running it through their machines.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    I turned on the heating in my apartment for the first time this year (I hate that statement as much as you do) and was treated to the not-so-lovely smell of stale dust cooking in my vents. I knew I had to solve this problem before it got too cold, so I purchased this microfibre duster. It gets all up in the small nooks and crannies of my ventilation system and is great for wiping dust off my TV, too. To make things even better, when it gets super dirty, I can just slide the microfibre cloth off the handle and throw it in the washing machine.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $18.99.

    36. A bottle of Goo Gone that'll clean up gluey and gooey messes in no time. From gum to glitter, this stuff works on pretty much everything.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $16.97.

    37. And finally, a non-toxic lavender and green tea candle that'll banish pet smells and make your home smell like a million bucks (instead of a zoo). It can burn for up to 70 hours, so you'll get plenty of use out of it.
