17 Cleaning Products That'll Give You Dramatic Before-And-After Photos

Better than the "staircase reveal" in She's All That.

Posted on

1. A plant-based, natural stain remover inspired by Britney Spears' hit song "Non-Toxic."

amazon.com

Incredible jokes aside — this product is tough on stains, but safe for your household.

Promising review: "All I can say is... Wow! We originally got this product to remove some blood stains from our sheets (my husband gets nosebleeds). Some of the stains were older and the sheets had already been washed several times, so we assumed they were set. But with just one application and wash with this stain remover, the stains were GONE. We also foster dogs for a local pet group, and this has helped us get out lots of pet stains on dog beds and our fabric recliner. It can completely remove wine stains on my white blouse, grease stains, and cherry juice stains on my jeans. Also, the bottle lasts forever even when used frequently, so it's actually a great price for what you get out of it." —Hygge Hannah

Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

2. A stainless steel cleaner not intended to clean the man of steel. You still need to shower, buddy.

amazon.com

Plus, this comes with a handy dandy microfiber cloth.

Promising review: "This is the best stainless cleaner I've ever used. I could never get the water spots and spill stains off my dishwasher before, but this product worked after the first use. It looks how it did when it was brand new!" —CB

5. A wine stain remover for when your red, red wine doesn't want to stay close to you. Give it some space.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I was at a friend's dinner party when someone who is not me knocked over a glass of red wine on her beautiful white tablecloth. Instead of panicking, my friend lazily sauntered into her kitchen, opened a drawer, and took out a spray bottle. 'It's okay,' she explained. 'I've got Wine Away.' What happened in front of my very eyes was a friggin' miracle. With a few sprays on the menacing spot, the wine stain actually DISAPPEARED! No need to grab plates and candles and silverware and stop the party to throw in an emergency load of laundry. Wine Away saved the day." —Lip Gloss Junkie

That's supposed to be a #2 joke. If you found that as funny as I did, let's be friends.
