    27 Things To Help You Spring Clean Every Area Of Your Life

    Spring is in the air which means it's time to hit the refresh button.

Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A cleaning spray that'll assist you in finally cleaning out your car, but particularly those baked-in stains that have been marinating in your back seat for months.

    Car Guys' Super Cleaner can be used on upholstery, canvas, leather, vinyl, plastic, and rubber.

    Promising review: "I have used every product that you can find on the shelves of your local store. When I sprayed the cleaner on the light beige interior of a 25-plus-year-old car, the interior turned to its original color. After years of detailing, I had assumed at this point, the color was set and that's it — not with this stuff. While cleaning it I literally said out loud, 'No way, no way,' because I was in disbelief at how amazing it worked, and the results are in the compliments I receive from friends." —Andrea Garcia

    2. A cosmetics case if it's time to do a spring cleanout of products you simply no longer use and the ones you do can be efficiently organized in this case.


    Promising review: "I have really been enjoying having this case. I used to have products here and there and always had to look for them. I now have all make-up items together in one case. I have all new products in the zippered section, and my bottle of makeup is able to stand up straight. Basically, my makeup is totally organized for the first time in a long time. I got makeup on the outside case and surprisingly it wiped off easily. Would definitely recommend this case." —Sharon K

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99 (available in two colors).

    3. A pet-hair remover so you can de-hair your sofa, chairs, and carpet from the built up pet fur that's just been covering anything and everything.

    Promising review: "We live in a household that contains two humans, two dogs, and two cats. It's a real Noah's Ark furnished with a black sectional couch. Our dogs absolutely hate the vacuum. So much so they will attack the cleaner head with their vicious bite even before we power it on. This makes the task of cleaning our couch extremely unpleasant and nearly impossible. Thanks to Chom Chom, we no longer have this problem! With a simple, quick, SOUNDLESS sweep, we're able to keep our couch pet hair–free in blissful peace. This tool does an amazing job picking up pet hair but not so much with crumbs. We were so impressed, we gifted these as Christmas presents for all of our pet-loving friends." —Magpie

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    4. A garbage-disposal foaming cleaner to refresh the drain and place you pour all your left over noodles that linger on your plate after dinner. Keep the garbage disposal squeaky clean so you can continue to use it in all your lazy glory.


    Look at that foam go!

    Promising review: "It seems counterintuitive to put a little packet down your garbage disposal to clean it, but this does actually seem to work, at least for getting out weird smells that baking soda and vinegar don't really touch. I scrub the sink down first, especially around the garbage disposal area, rinse it down, and then just follow the directions on the package. I have used it with single, large-size sinks and with double sinks — only difference is that the double sink will have blue cleaning foam rise up the drain, which you rinse away when the disposal sounds clear again. I have tried the foaming cleaner in a can, but unfortunately it stopped coming out of the can about 10% of the way through. Went back to this tried-and-true." —KS

    Get it from Amazon for $4.10.

    5. A handy cable organizer for keeping your charging cables organized and color coded so you never confuse the phone charger for your headphones charger again.

    6. A jetted-tub cleaner so the next time you marinate in a bubble bath you can ensure that the water will be crystal clear.


    Promising review: "My wife told me we had to really clean what appeared to be a clean tub. We moved into a house where the previous home owners were not the best cleaners. She had me get this product based on reviews. My one complaint is the label needs to be bigger. OH YUK is not enough. OH YUK YOU MIGHT BARF might be better. I think someone had a bowel movement in my bath tub plumbing and this is the only product that takes it out. It appears we have seven years of crud in the pipes. The feces colored film that this products gets out of your pipes will make you a believer. The first use it released so much toot film that we felt like we needed to have another round of cleaning. After losing a bet I had to stick my hand in the water to drain it. Wiping off all the released film we filled the tub again. Just turning the jets the water seemed to be clear. However before I was going to ever get into this thing I wanted to do a second round of YUK treatment. Once again in full force it appeared that someone had the squirts in tub as sludge came flowing out of the pipes. We're going to have to run this a few times before we use the tub. Remember those pink tablets that you use to get in grade school to show you all the plaque that was on your teeth..... The product is like that for you tub." —Paul Southwick

    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.

I scoop as much poop as I can until the swivel bin is about half full, dump it into a trash bag, and continue until the back yard/front yard is spotless and clean. The rake is fabulous for collecting poop when my dogs choose to go in the rocks we have surrounding the pool or the palm trees. Fabulous product and well worth the money." —Natalie Smith

    Promising review: "After reading the reviews I thought I could at least try it, and holy smokes, this is a miracle cleaner!!! I think I have tried every cleaner on the market for pet stains and nothing ever really works on my carpets. Even if I get it off the top, it somehow comes back up. My crazy dogs hate the rain and they have one spot that they always go on when they decide they are not going outside. I have cleaned the spot probably 100 times. I cleaned this area one time with this cleaner and my spot steam cleaner and it is completely gone! The stain and smell are 100% gone, not just covered up like before, completely and absolutely gone. Miracle cleaner for sure!" —PLLane

    Get it from Amazon for $16.97.

    This vacuum syncs up to an app on your phone that'll show you a real-time map of your space. If you're only looking to clean one particular area, you can select it in the app and your vacuum will go to town! Whenever the battery level gets low it will make it's way back to the charging dock for a quick recharge and then get back to work after. You can vacuum and mop with this so depending on your chores for the day, this li'l guy can get the work done.

    I personally own this vacuum and I can tell you it works. It works in zig-zag motions to ensure a thorough clean and it picked up a large amount of dust and debris that were sitting on my kitchen floors. It also has a few different noise settings so if you want it to be on the quieter side you can select that option. This is great if you live in a small space and keeping a large vacuum just isn't in the cards with your closet space. Plus this will do the vacuuming for you (a mundane task if you ask me, lol), so you can spend more time on other things. The app is pretty user friendly and I look forward to taking this with me when I move into an apartment space!

    Get it from Amazon for $369.
