    1. 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 $7.58.

    2. A handy-dandy brush set with the ability to reach all those tiny, gross areas that you definitely don't clean enough.

    Around your faucet, for example, 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.

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.
