    39 Things That’ll Practically Keep Your Home Clean For You

    If cleaning is the bane of your existence, one of these products will make it just a little bit more bearable.

Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A Flush 'N Sparkle Toilet cleaning system to install in your toilet's water tank so the bowl stays just as clean as the last time you scrubbed it. These cartridges last up to three months! The bleach cleansers will make your porcelain throne sparkle and shine with each and every flush.


    Promising review: "I have one of those water saver toilets. It was almost impossible to keep clean. While this cleaning system doesn't completely eliminate the problem, it helps a lot. Instead of needing to clean the bowl daily, I can clean it once a week. I liked it so much, I purchased one for my sister. One of the best features of this system is that it puts the cleaner directly into the water stream instead of into the tank. You don't have to worry about it attacking the metal parts of the tank. It was easy to install. It is real easy to install and replace the cleaning cartridge." —Mikkel

    Get it from Amazon for $9.97.

    2. A TubShroom that'll assist in keeping your drain clog free by trapping all rogue hair and anything that probs shouldn't be taking a trip down there.

    Promising review: "I was so afraid to wash my hair because the thickness would stop up the tub. This TubShroom changed my hair washing routine forever. They say you can leave it in for one to two weeks but I have to remove it after each wash because the shroom can't manage my hair thicknesses. Great product!!!!!" —Cassandra Edwards 

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in five colors and in a multipack).

    3. And a highly-loved drain snake if your drain is in fact already clogged and you need to clean it out before inserting a drain catcher.

    Promising review: "I’m so excited to finally have a bathroom sink that drains!! Since moving into my apartment, my bathroom sink and bathtub took forever to drain. I bought multiple de-clogging solutions but they didn’t assist or help much with the problem. When my bathtub was taking over an hour to drain I decided it was time to try these out! After receiving it I went to work, within minutes it pulled out so much hair in both drains. it’s disturbing/disgusting yet weirdly satisfying because now my sinks drain!! Cannot believe how easy it was to use (I received a pack of three) but only needed to use one for both sinks." —Debsd

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $6.99 (available in two lengths).

    4. A pet hair–removal glove to keep yourself from finding your pup's hair all over your spotless hardwood floors. They'll enjoy this stimulating massage and you'll enjoy ridding them of the fur that would have eventually fallen onto your clean floors.

    You'll get a pair: one for the right hand and one for the left hand.

    Promising review: "I've been looking for an alternative way to manage my pup's shedding and all I can say I wish I got these sooner. These gloves showed to be more beneficial all-around compared to the typical brushing. For one, the pup likes it (as opposed to the brush he tried to avoid at every session), so I’m not wasting time any more trying to get him to come here and stay here, etc. Now it’s wagging tails instead at the sight of these gloves. The process is much quicker now, as the gloves gather not only more easily, but I’d say at least twice if not triple the amount of hair at a time. Apparently these gloves work on his mood too, as he always ends up starting a playfight nibbling at the gloves." —Truffle Shuffle

    Get them from Amazon for $11.04 (available in three colors).

    5. A storage bean bag chair so they can keep all their plush friends stowed and also enjoy a comfortable seat while they are keeping the playroom mess free.


    Adults use this for storage, too!

    Promising review: "My daughter has at least a gazillion stuffed animals that had overtaken her bedroom. I bought two of these (largest size) thinking even two wouldn’t be enough for the five garbage bags (13-gallon size) of animals. But much to my surprise, ALL animals fit IN ONE...with room to spare! It’s huge! So we stuffed in a couple of the extra large animals that hadn’t fit in the garbage bags, along with some throw blankets and some small throw pillows. Now I have an extra cover I have no need for. The material is quality canvas, stitching seems well done, and the zipper is strong. It’s also very comfortable to sit on. My daughter and I both highly recommend it!" —C Bass

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in two sizes and eight colors/patterns).

    6. A simple dryer vent cleaning kit and brush because odds are there is an overabundance of lint in your dryer vents that you don't even know is there. (You can even attach a drill to it for more cleaning power and efficiency.)

    lint collected from dryer vent kit

    Promising review: "We moved into our new house about two years ago and needed to clean out the dryer duct. This kit made it super simple. The rods were easy to attach and very flexible, but still strong enough to spin, even when extended all 12 feet! We got out a TON more lint than we could ever imagine out of the duct! Buying this kit and doing it myself already paid for itself. It was $150–$200 to have a specialist come over and do the same work. Took me all of about 20 minutes to move the dryer, use the brush and all attachments, vacuum, and use disinfectant up the dryer vent!" —Michael Wiggin

    Get it from Amazon for $16.79.

    7. A scrap collector to attach at the edge of your counter so you can effortlessly swipe scraps into this handy waste bin (instead of struggling over to the trash).

    person swipes food scraps into bin

    Promising review: "So useful! I use mine more as a small trash collector. I have mine next to the stove for eggshells and anything else I may want to toss quickly. Also, I line it with a plastic produce bag so that it doesn't get grimy and dirty. Not only this, but using this as a small trash can, I end up using my large kitchen trash bag as a bin for my smaller produce-bag-wrapped trash bags (and/or trash items that don't have a smell). This means my large trash can usually doesn't smell bad, since it's only ever full of smaller wrapped trash bags. Maybe it seems a little strange, but for someone who usually only cooks for one, I don't like my large trashcan to be partially full and already smell like it needs to be taken out." —Shaz

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in two colors).

    8. A splatter guard for preventing any splashes of pasta sauce on your beloved white sweater while cooking — or on your precious clean stove top.

    splatter guard on pan

    Made of dishwasher-safe, BPA-free, and FDA-compliant silicone that can withstand sustained temperatures of up to 450°F.

    Promising review: "This silicone splatter guard works beautifully. I found no grease splatter on my ceramic cooktop after frying so I didn't need to spend the 15 minutes cleaning that mess up. It fit my 10-inch fry pan perfectly without any issues. The Frywall itself was very easy to clean up with a little dawn dish soap and my Scrub Daddy. This is one kitchen tool that I will use over and over." —RB

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95 (available in four colors; also available in 12-inch).

    9. An adjustable blind duster to clean the rogue dust that can start to build up over time in tough-to-reach places like blinds and car vents.

    Promising review: "OK I'll be honest, I ordered this because of the price. After reviewing several other options and having been disappointed with previous dusters I've had, I figured why spend more money on something that isn't going to work? So I ordered the least expensive option but WOW does this little tool rock!!!! It's very easy to use and clean. It does a fantastic job of cleaning and dusting the blinds and gets ALL of the crud off of them. My blinds haven't been this clean since the day they were first installed. VERY happy with purchase." —Amazon Shopper

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in two colors).

    10. A magnetic key holder because it's finally time to stop losing your keys and having a mild crisis when trying to retrace your steps.

    cloud key holder holds car keys

    Promising review: "This is one of the most useful purchases I've ever made on Amazon. I use it every single day to hang my keys. I've had it for at least half a year now it seems. It hasn't lost any magnetism and it holds my car keys, remote start, USB, rewards/gift cards, house and work keys, etc. I'm in love." —Makenah

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

    11. An easily washable drip catcher that fits effortlessly around your sink faucet to avoid the puddle of doom. (Believe me, you know the puddle of doom.)

    Two Lilacs Studio is a small Etsy shop based in Saint Helens, Oregon.

    Promising review: "LOVE these splash catchers! They save me from having to chase the puddles that form around the base of our faucet before they start creeping over the counter. So reasonably priced, made well with neatly finished edges, and packaged with gift-ready care." —Alina

    Get it from Two Lilacs Studio on Etsy for $13.50+ (available in four sizes and six colors).

    12. A bottle of Goo Gone to help remove tacky adhesive that just doesn't want to take a hike. Ever try to remove stickers from your laptop? This will take care of every last bit of sticky residue.

    Yi Yang / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "My 9-year-old daughter turned my house into a slime lab. No room was safe from her. I will not even try to explain what this small cute human did to her room. Words that could describe the damage this human did to our carpet and furniture don't exist in the vocabulary. Months of tears and weeks of angry faces because the new furniture was ruined. But then I discovered GooGone and our life took a turn. I cleaned a dry glue stain (hot glue gun) from my beloved bench. It removed dry slime from carpets. I suggest you buy at least three bottles, because when you start cleaning your house with it you won't be able to stop until you removed all glue stains your kids have made the last five years." —MasonK84

    Get it from Amazon for $7.97.

    13. A can of Bar Keepers cookware polish to keep your pots and pans spotless from grease stains and most definitely the baked-on tomato sauce you just can't seem to scrub off...

    It's great for removing food stains, grease, rust stains, and lime buildup!

    Promising review: "I love this product! I recently got new pots and pans that I absolutely love. They're stainless steel and I love the way they look. Unfortunately, I've burnt something on just about all of them, but this really helped to clean them up. I put this powder on the wet pans and use steel wool to scrub out any stains. It's amazing! You don't even have to scrub super hard. Overall, I love this product and it will forever be part of my cleaning routine!" —KARINA

    Get it from Amazon for $9.69.

    14. A cutlery organizing tray for ~finally~ organizing your utensil drawer from the hot mess express it's been since you moved in.

    Promising review: "Seriously, this is the best invention ever. My poor utensil drawer was stuffed to the seams and this little guy totally solved the problem. We use flat IKEA utensils and can fit 12 of each piece. I can't explain how happy I am to have so much room in that drawer now. And for less than $10!" —Brittany H.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.56.

    15. A handmade organizer for plastic storage bags to stop the inevitable chaos that your drawers turn into after every sandwich bag box is opened.

    Get it from JC Sign Craft on Etsy for $52+ (available in two sizes).

    16. A hanger stacker so grabbing a hanger for that new dress you bought can be easy and "fight-free." You know what it's like to try to tango with a jumble of twisted's truly the fight of all fights.

    Promising review: "We have lots of those velvet skinny hangers. I love them. But I don't love them lying around the bedroom. They're so thin that they get lost on the bed easily, and I even sometimes can't see them when they're on the floor — I've stepped on several and broken them. I wanted a way to corral them all when I found this. For the price, you really can't beat it! My hangers are organized and in one location. The stand is sturdy and practical. I'd buy another one again if I needed it!" —Auburn Sky

    Get it from Amazon for $22.44+ (also available in packs).

    17. A set of non-stick oven liners that'll ensure any excess drippings or crumbs from your cooked meals don't stay burning at the bottom of the oven floor.

    Promising review: "I have a non–self cleaning oven for the first time in decades. After having an apple pie spill over and spending more than an hour cleaning it up, I purchased these oven liners. What a time saver. The are easy to cut so they fit perfectly. Because I have a visible heating element, the liner goes right on the oven floor, under the heating element." —K L Barnes-O'Connor

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $12.99.

    18. A container of The Pink Stuff cleaning paste that'll clean practically anything. Scuffs on the walls? Dirty stove? Stains on your bathtub? The Pink Stuff will fix all that.,

    Promising review: "Since moving into this apartment I have gradually come to hate this tub because of the water stains I have tried every product on the market including crazy things from the internet like Coca-Cola, vinegar, you name it...this stuff with a couple of swipes/scrubs and a toothbrush for the textured areas completely cleaned my tub in a way that I can only tell you excited me to the core of my being. All I can tell you is buy it and I wish you the best!" —Michelle

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    Humble Suds specializes in plant-based, natural cleaning products. They're located in Denver, Colorado.

    My colleague Danielle used it and said it was super effective,

    "I recently moved into a new apartment, so lately I've been cleaning A LOT. Shortly after moving in, my partner and I went to store something on the top of the kitchen cabinets only to find them caked in a thick layer of grime 🤢 After going at it with regular multipurpose cleaner (with little success) we broke out the scour paste as a last-ditch effort and OH BOY did this miracle product deliver (pics above). If it can handle that grossness, it's going to have no problem with day-to-day messes like soap scum and burnt-on food. Plus, it smells delightful and comes in minimal, low-waste packaging!" —Danielle Healy

    Get it from Humble Suds on Etsy for $14.95+ (available in two sizes).

    20. A blessedly effective carpet cleaner that'll have you saying, "What sorcery is this?!" You'll never have to call Stanley Steemer again.

    vacuum cleans a light stripe into dark, dirty tan carpet

    Promising review: "This is a wonderful product. I have an older dog who can't always wait until I get home from work so accidents occasionally happen. I have a Hoover Rug Scrubber and this product is very easy to use with my machine. Carpet Miracle works amazingly well on stains and odors, even those that have set for a while. I did the carpet in the 'room of shame' twice just to be sure, although for normal soil and odors once should be more than enough. It leaves behind a wonderful clean, fresh scent, and the carpet feels and looks wonderful. I plan on continuing to use this product to keep my carpets clean and my home smelling fresh." —Vicky Faurot

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    21. An innovative set of cleaning tablets if you're ready to toss out all your store-bought sprays. Just pop one of the tabs into the reusable spray bottle to reduce your waste and keep your home sparkly clean.

    The kit comes with three reusable cleaning bottles, one reusable foaming hand soap bottle and four tablets — one each for multi-surface, glass and mirror, bathroom, and foaming hand soap solutions. Just fill each bottle with water and drop in the corresponding tablet. The bottles are also super aesthetically pleasing so brb while I go place an order...

    Promising review: "Listen, maybe it's just a Me Problem, but I always get kind of confused about what cleaning products to use where — they're usually dangerous chemicals and I don't want to mess up! With Blueland, it's honestly a relief to have the bottles labeled, telling me exactly where to use each product. And it's doubly a relief to know that they're all ~clean~ cleaning products regardless." —Rachel Dunkel

    Get it from Blueland for $39.

    22. A pack of stainless steel cleaning wipes for keeping all of your appliances like your refrigerator, dishwasher, and sink free of watermarks, stains, and fingerprints.

    Promising review: "I purchased these wipes to clean my stainless steel refrigerator. I wanted something that would remove water stains and restore the shine, and these wipes delivered! After a few minutes of vigorously wiping back and forth along the grain, my refrigerator was looking brand-new. I was impressed with the results and noticed that the canister said the wipes could be used on sinks, so I tried one in my stainless steel sink to see what would happen. As you can see from the pictures (above), after just a few minutes of cleaning, my sink was sparkling and incredible! I began cleaning all of the stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, and just a few wipes and 20 minutes later my kitchen was looking better than ever." —Connor

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $14.48.

    23. An all-natural oven scrub to deep clean your oven from that baked-on grease that's been clouding the window for far too long. It features gritty pumice stone for an intense, much-needed scrub-a-dub-dub.

    Everneat / Etsy

    Everneat is a small Etsy shop based in Fairfield, Connecticut, that specializes in cleaning products.

    Promising review: "Finally tackled the rings on our stove top with this scrub and a reusable paper towel (as I was worried about using a scourer on an easily scratched surface) and the rings came right off! These are those 'oh, crap, the pot boiled over' rings that I ignored that lead to my stove top looking a bit crusty. The oven scrub ate them right off and left my oven and stove top looking great." —Jessie Bono

    Get it from Everneat on Etsy for $19.99+ (available in a glass or plastic jar).

    24. A shoe organizer — perfect for rooms where you don't have a ton of closet space and want to maximize the under-bed room you have. This will keep shoes safely stowed and organized whenever you're looking for that one specific pair.

    under bed shoe storage organizer

    It has 12 slots! Reviewers use this for shoes, scarves, sweaters, you name it.

    Promising review: "At first I really disliked and was thrown off that this doesn't have any cardboard support in the separators like I have had in the past. But turns out it's been actually super helpful as I use this for my shoes I use less often, which are mostly big heels and shoes that don't exact fit in tiny box compartments. The flexibility of this organizer worked perfectly for me. There is a lot of extra give to be able to put in shoes that are weirdly shaped or too big and still be able to zip it closed with no problem." —Michelle Laughlin

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    25. Or an over-the-door shoe organizer you can use not only to hold your shoes and save closet space, but also practically anywhere in your home you need some additional space. Use this in your pantry for even more storage or in your bathroom for hosting your hair tools and toiletries.,

    Promising review: "I had one of these I used for my pantry door and it lasted me over three years. After some time. It started to look old, dirty, and stretched in certain areas so I decided to buy a new one. I found this one and it not only comes in cute colors, but the actual pockets are a tad larger than my last one. I love it. It helps me keep things I reach for often, organized and looking neat and clean. Worth every penny. It doesn't give me any problems when I go to shut the door and it hangs nicely without much movement. It's not too bulky, and it's all around perfect for my small space that I needed to maximize. Highly recommend." —Patrick & Holly

    Get it from Amazon for $9.97 (available in three colors).

    26. A paw-cleaning device to keep your furry friends' paws clean and free from mud that they often tend to drag into the house with them.

    It has gentle silicone bristles to help remove dirt and mud from your dog's paws — which is all collected in this handy little device.

    Promising review: "I love it! I highly recommend this to everyone. I have a golden and lab/shepherd mix, both dogs love water and the mud. I would go through multiple towels a week cleaning their feet, this changes that completely. At first my dogs were nervous about this, but after a few uses they don’t mind at all. It cleans in between my Golden's feet so well, I can’t believe it." —Valerie U.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in three sizes and six colors).

    27. A silicone sink strainer because no one needs a clogged sink from the leftover food that's rinsed off of your dinner plates going down the drain.

    silicone sink strainer

    These are stain resistant and dishwasher safe.

    Promising review: "I just recently moved and was looking for a solution since I no longer have a garbage disposal. My sister told me not to waste my time with any of the mesh/grid looking strainers. She told me specifically about this strainer and said it's the easiest to clean and keep clean by far. She certainly wasn't lying. It fits perfectly over my drain and doesn't move around or lift at all when there is excess water in the sink. When it comes time to clean it I just dump it first, and then if there are any stragglers I just pop up the bottom (seen in picture) and give it a good shake. Works every time. No weird goop residue like in previous strainers. I love it. It works for my home perfectly." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    28. A grill scrubber so you can say buh-bye to stuck on grease stains that tend to stay on the grill far longer than they should be.

    grill scrubber cleaning grill stains

    Promising review: "My grill accumulated a lot of crud as a result of many cookouts. I tried to keep it as clean as possible with a wire brush and various cleaning pads and cleaners. I never could get the rack and grates to look like new. There was always a layer of permanent food residue, carbon, and other debris that defied removal. I decided to give the Magic Stone Grill Cleaner a shot. Surprise! Surprise! This is truly a magic stone. It removed everything from the grill parts that I worked on and left them looking like new. The cleaning process did put grooves in the bottom of the stone and that helped to get the sides cleaned off as well." —Duffer.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    29. A tub of heavy-duty cleaning wipes because you'll need a saving grace when you accidentally spill your soda or precious dinner on the carpet. (These would've worked wonders for Kevin from The Office — just sayin'.)

    using towels to clean up stain on rug

    These work on almost any surface: leather, fabric, furniture, hardwood, pans, metal, WHEREVER. And! They'll clean up grease, oil, tar, dirt, ink, lipstick, nail polish, food, and a whole lot more.

    Promising review: "These are awesome! The size of the container is large and so was the quantity I received. The wipes are huge and tough, great for scrubbing! I cleaned my whole house with these and they removed stains I haven't been able to get out for a while. I also tried them on my walls and they did not remove the paint. Also, they smell fantastic: no chemical smell whatsoever. These are a great deal on Amazon, and I will be purchasing them again!" —Suze

    30. A Glisten garbage disposer cleaner for keeping your food scrap dumping station crystal clean and free of gunk.

    using garbage disposal cleaner in sink

    You just pop the packet down the drain! Can't get any easier.

    Promising review: "Holy cow I didn't realize how easy and quick it was to clean a garbage disposal until I bought this product! Typically, in my naïve thinking, I'd just use vinegar and baking soda down the drain and call it good. Little did I know that there was an actual cleaning product available until I stumbled across it through a Buzzfeed article. It literally takes five minutes and some hot water and VOILÀ! You have a clean, no-longer-stinky garbage disposal. Let me say that anytime I got a whiff of an odor, all I did was drop one of those packs in the disposal and the smell was GONE! Worth every penny!" —VadersGirl

    Get four from Amazon for $3.98.

    31. A set of stainless steel curved hooks you can use to maximize space throughout your home. Use 'em for tasks such as hanging pots in the kitchen or hanging pants, belts, and bags in your closet.,

    Promising review: "I am using most of these hooks to hang purses in a closet. It's much easier for me to reach and see them. I hang them from the bottom shelf and they are not taking up valuable shelf space. Others are being used in laundry room, hanging from a metal shelving unit." —Amy

    Get a pack of 20 from Amazon for $6.95.

    32. And a set of non-slip velvet hangers because we all have those tops that love to fall of the hangers time and time again...

    Promising review: "My closet looks so clean and organized! I just keep buying these so every new piece of clothing can go on a pretty, uniform hanger. I especially like the rounded edges that do not leave any hanger marks on my clothing. It may seem like an unnecessary cost to replace your closet hangers, but it is such a nice feeling to evict those ugly, large, never the same color plastic hangers from the closet and put your clothes on these." —Seth Goodman

    33. A shower curtain featuring nine mesh pockets to keep all those bathroom necessities from cluttering the corners of your shower and sink area.

    shower curtain with pocket storage

    Promising review: "I LOVE this shower curtain. I have been buying this curtain for the past six years. If you have a shower that doesn’t have a lot of ledge room for all your stuff, this shower curtain will be your best friend. You can fit so many things inside the pockets! I honestly only use like four or five of the pockets. You can also use this as a liner and have another more decorative shower curtain on the outside, but I personally use it as a shower curtain!" —DAtkins

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    34. A set of vacuum storage bags in case you're unwilling to part with your overabundance of sweatshirts and need to compact them to take up less precious room in your closet.

    Promising review: "THESE ARE LIFE-CHANGING. They even give you a hand pump to use in case you're taking the bags camping or just don't have a vacuum handy. I tested the pump to see how well it works, and it worked perfectly! Works just as well as a vacuum, just takes a little more effort pumping out the air. Using these bags, I got half my closet back! I used three bags to store ALL THE items in my closet including three large pillows and several thick blankets and comforters. I will most definitely be buying more; these are fantastic!!!" —Knastay

This takes care of any stain so fast and efficiently, it's become a party trick. I have seriously poured red wine over a white comforter to demonstrate how great it is to a friend once. It is a miracle in a bottle! We use it for all sorts of cleaning on materials around the house, and one bottle has lasted us years! This is definitely a product every home should have." —Melanie Nolen

    wooden desktop organizer

    It only weighs four pounds and is easy to put together, so bringing this to the office is a piece of cake.

    Promising review: "I rarely ever leave a review for anything, no matter how good or bad. But this was really a great buy so I felt compelled to write a review. I received it just yesterday. I easily put it together and immediately brought it to work to put it to use. Every single coworker that walked past my desk complimented just how cute and organized it looked. I was skeptical at first, thinking it looks better in the picture than it might be in reality, but I was very pleasantly surprised. The picture shows just how nice and tidy it made my things, and I definitely think this is worth getting." —R

    38. A multi-outlet wall adapter to keep power strips off your floor, which can be a bit of an eyesore, and all of your wires from knotting together.


    Promising review: "These adapters work great everywhere you need to add some extra outlet space. I have purchased 6 of these for my house because they work so great and aren't too bulky on my walls. Yes, they do protrude from the walls, but they aren't an eye sore. I have every outlet used on the one in my office room. I also put these in my bedroom, living room, and bathroom. Have had zero issues with them since owning them for over 6 months." —Kenny RN

    Promising review: "I could not get my flatware to come out clean from the dishwasher and I wondered if it was the hard water. I was using up to three soap blocks in each load with only partial improvement. I used this the first time and voilà! Perfectly clean flatware for the first time. I LOVE this!" —Susan A

    Promising review: "I have no idea how these work, but they put anything stinky to rest. I purchased these and put one in the kitchen and the other in a “new” 13-year old car we just bought. Within 24-48 hours all odors were gone and it just smelled clean and fresh. Love the linen packages, it makes them look less “industrial” and blend in better." —Ellen
