    1. A spray gel for anyone whose cleaning products have been a little ~rusty~ lately. This'll get rid of hard water rust build-up like it's no one's business.

    Promising review: "I have researched a ton of products and tried just about everything to get rid of the rust in my bathroom β€” it's plagued with well-water carnage. I've tried all the organic and expensive garbage that's supposed to clean anything, but when I saw the reviews on this here (with pictures), I took a shot. And holy baby Jesus! This stuff, coupled with a Magic Eraser, is absolutely miraculous. My shower is a happy place once again!" β€”Audra

    Get it from Amazon for $5.48.

    2. A pumice stone that shows NO mercy to the filth in your toilet bowl. It fights hard against your hard water stains. It can even remove spray paint (lol) from your sink.

    Promising review: "I have a 19-year-old master bathroom toilet that had accumulated some nasty stains over time, and regular toilet brushes and cleaning products just would not remove them. I decided to try this pumice stone, and it worked like a charm! Given the nature and severity of the stains, it required some elbow grease. But 10 minutes later, I have a new-looking bowl, and I see no signs of scratching." β€”Happy Retiree

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    3. Magic erasers created by a very, very powerful magician. Said magician is capable of yelling "ABRACADABRA" and the stains just disappear.

    These melamine eraser sponges are super tough on stains, but won't damage the surface underneath said stain.

    Promising review: "I never thought I'd be able to get the weird pink soap stains out of my tub. Picture someone scrubbing with cleaning products until their arms were sore, to no avail. But this worked with no effort! It's unbelievable. Please never let this go off the market!" β€”Catherine King

    Get two packs of four from Amazon for $10.91.

    4. A non-abrasive cleansing and polishing powder perfect for porcelain, copper, glass, tile, stainless steel, plastic, and brass.

    This cult favorite promises to remove hard water AND rust stains, and it can be used on every inch of your bathroom.

    Promising review: "Yes! This turned my nasty yellow bathtub white again! I don't have to keep my shower curtain closed anymore while I have guests come over because I don't have to be embarrassed by my tub. You do have to scrub, but it WORKS and I'm really happy with the result!" β€”Cassie B.

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $3.59 .

    5. An electric power scrubber that does all of your horrible Cinderella-esque chores for ya. Repeat after me: NO MORE HAND SCRUBBING FLOORS.

    This scrubber comes with a rechargeable battery (it lasts up to 50 minutes after three and a half hours of charging it). Plus, it comes with four different brush heads targeted for different cleaning jobs. HOWEVER! Each will combat soap scum, mildew, and grime.

    Promising review: "I have several health issues and can no longer get on my hands and knees to scrub the floor, and this thing is unreal! I am SO glad I got this β€” it really made cleaning up so much easier! The before and after pictures are of our basement bathroom after a flood. The pics make it pretty obvious which ones are the before and the after..." β€”W. Shores

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    6. A disposable toilet cleaning kit designed to clean the crap outta your toilet bowl. Literally.

    Are you grossed out by the fact that your old toilet brush is sitting in literal filth? Then this scrubber kit is for you. It includes a wand, storage caddy, and six refill sponges, the latter of which you could THROW OUT after just one use.

    Promising review: "Nothing could be easier than this. Just swish and toss! The soft squishy sponge gets under the rim easily, unlike a stiff brush. The best part, of course, is that you dispose of the sponge after just one use. No more keeping that dirty brush under the bathroom sink! This system is a keeper and I bought one for every bathroom in my house." β€”Carol Lynn

    Get this kit from Amazon for $7.98.

    7. A concentrated gel because stains of ANY kind are an eye sore. But mold and mildew stains? *shudders at the thought*

    This concentrated formula clings to silicone sealants (so the thin area around your shower head, in between your tiles, etc.) and helps to prevent mold and mildew from popping up again.

    Promising review: "This product deserves more than five stars. It is magic! I've tried everything for the mold in my tub tiles and grout, and nothing has worked β€” but not only did this remove the mold, but it left the grout looking really shiny. I couldn't be happier!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    8. A handy-dandy brush set with the ability to reach all those tiny, gross areas that you definitely don't clean enough. Including the crevices between your tiles.

    This is also great for the corners of your faucet, which accumulates SO MUCH GRIME.

    Promising review: "These are two of the BEST tools ever. You can't beat the way the angled brush heads get into the little nooks and crannies of the sink, especially the most disgusting part β€” the crevice where the water pools get trapped between the faucet and the sink! I previously used a toothbrush, but the smaller of the two brushes in this set blew my toothbrush technique out of the water! I also love the little squeegee piece on the bottom of the smaller tool for cleaning around the drain of the sink." β€”Erica Educator

    Get them from Amazon for $5.99.

    9. A mold and mildew remover that will karate chop the crap out of... mold and mildew. Seriously, this stuff has a black belt in cleaning.

    Promising review: "Nothing removes mold and mildew from my shower like Tilex does. My shower can get kind of gross-looking, but I use Tilex and my shower is noticeably cleaner after just soaking in the spray for a few minutes. I then scrub a bit, and it gets even better!" β€”Mteren

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $11.49.

    10. A power scrubber to replace the ratty old toothbrush you were previously using to clean the crevices in your home.

    The bristles rotate 60 times per second, meaning a dirty grout doesn't stand a chance.

    Promising review: "This is an excellent power scrubber. I use it on the grout in the shower, and it immediately took off the dirt, soap scum, and water residue. It left the grout white and like new! Having owned several rental properties, cleaning grout is always challenging; I've used everything from toothbrushes to steam cleaners, and this inexpensive tool did a better job than all of them." β€”Jefferey W. Lew

    Get it from Amazon for $13.54.

    11. A tile cleaner because getting rid of the grime grout in your bathroom is HELLA hard. This makes it so much easier.

    Promising review: "This is just what you need to clean your grout lines in the quickest way possible! I don't know what we were thinking when we decided to put subway tile in our shower, but we did, and cleaning the grout lines can be a very time-consuming job. But this brush really did a great job and sped up the process!" β€”Amanda E. King

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    12. A cleaning system that lures out all the mysterious hidden gunk in your tub, because NO ONE should cool their jets.

    Run your bath, add this jet cleaner, have allllllll the grime come out of said jets, and then wipe down your tub. BOOM! You're done.

    Promising review: "It's disgusting to see what comes out of your jets when you use this product. I can't believe we bathed in this! I've run bleach and dish detergent through my jets before, and that combination never cleaned with this efficiency. I highly recommended this product." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    13. An over-the-cabinet organizer to keep your blow dryer, straighter, and curling iron cords from tangling into one large entity.

    Promising review: "This product did exactly what I needed it to! Before, all my hair tools were in a drawer and the cords were always tangled, but this metal basket minimizes clutter, keeps things organized and separate, and it also looks nice! It fits two of my blow dryers, a flat iron, and a curling wand. The bars are adjustable, as well." β€”Alyssa Jewell

    Get it from Amazon for $16.90.

    14. A chemical-free treatment to have your bathroom fixtures looking sparkly, shiny, and new. Water stains? I don't know her.

    This stuff also works great against alllllllll types of pesks. Mildew! Mold! Rust! Say goodbye to all of it.

    Promising review: "This is an amazing product! This is the first time I have written a review for Amazon, and I shop A LOT! But I have been looking for something to get the hard water spots off of my shower door and this did the trick! I've used it on all my bathroom fixtures, and they are sparkling. Plus, this doesn't have any fumes and it's safe to use without gloves!" β€”loveshoes!

    Get it from Amazon for $19.90.
