    1. Garbage disposal cleaner that foams up so you get a cool show and a clean disposal to boot.

    amazon.com

    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. So of course, I had to try it. Very simple instructions: 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! Plus the blue foam bubbling through the sink was amusing to watch ;-). Worth every penny!" —VadersGirl

    Get it from Amazon for $6.82 (available in three sizes).

    2. A three-blade blinds cleaner with five removable microfiber sleeves so you can clean every single blind to your liking.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "These blind cleaners are terrific! I've enjoyed cleaning houses and offices professionally for over 20 years and cleaning blinds is not always easy. I debated and debated what to buy, to try to make the process a bit easier. Within five minutes of using this, I was almost doing cartwheels — it really works! Best product I have ever used to clean blinds. My first time using it, I had eight different large blinds to clean, with skinny slats to boot, and this duster brush with refills DID THE JOB BEAUTIFULLY. I have gone from dreading cleaning blinds to actually enjoying the process. I could not be happier." —T.R.

    Promising review: "Worked perfectly on black suede booties. Splattered some creamy soup on them two months ago. Couldn't find anything that removed the stain.

    4. An oven cleaner that can help with everything your oven's self-cleaning feature missed. Amazing cleaning potion: 1 Dirt: 0.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm a little embarrassed to write this review; it's been six years since my last oven cleaning. After seeing the results, I couldn't help but spread the word. Sure, it took some beer, a little John Mayer, and a lot of elbow grease, but I got the job done, thanks to this handy little product. It did require two treatments; however, given the circumstances, this product accomplished quite a feat in just an hour." —William

    Get it from Amazon for $6.44.

    5. A carpet cleaner and deodorizer to give you some wow-worthy results without even breaking a sweat.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97+ (available in two sizes).

    7. A watermark remover for anyone who wishes they could turn back time to before their rude guests forgot to put down coasters. This is the next best thing!

    amazon.com

    The cloth is reusable, and can be used to remove marks on wood caused by water, alcohol, and heat. It can also be used to polish metal and chrome. What a multitasker!

    Promising review: "I must admit I ordered this as a last hope. I had a mark on my bedside table that I tried various things to remove, but was totally unsuccessful. I tried this today, and there is NO sign of the mark. It is like brand new again. I was thrilled with the result and highly recommend it to anyone, but would suggest you try it first to save yourself grief! It is inexpensive in the first place, but to know I can reuse it if necessary on another mark, (hopefully that doesn't occur, but life happens), makes it an even better value." —Kritik

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    8. A strain-removing spray that will make all your worst spill accidents go *poof* and disappear.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I fell in love with this product some 15 years ago, and I am so very happy that it's still available in the same wonderful formula. It has a fantastic citrus scent. 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

    9. A rust-removing gel spray – you may be tempted to say "abracadabra" as you use it. It's that magical!

    amazon.com

    Use this for cleaning bathtubs, showers, toilets, colorfast fabrics, vertical surfaces, and hard-to-reach spots. It's nonabrasive, and made with nonhydrofluoric acid based formula.

    Promising review: "Holy wizardry! Seriously it was more work to clean the mirror over the vanity than use this product. With almost no effort, this made my dark orange, iron-water shower stall white again. I definitely suggest wearing a mask or bandana and running the ventilation fan if spraying in an enclosed area. Great product!" —Jessica B

    Get it from Amazon for $4.01.

    10. A grout pen that you can use to just cover up all the dirt and make your tiles look brand spanking new. Not technically a cleaning supply, but you can't argue with results.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised by how far these went. I did the entire floor of my large master bathroom plus a little of the shower with one pen. It is pretty forgiving and you have quite a bit of working time before it dries completely. This was not a quick task, but it went faster than I thought it would. I was worried the white would look too bright, but it just makes everything look so much cleaner. I'm very happy with this product!" —Jenelle

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in three colors, and two sizes).

    11. A soap scum and grime remover because the place you get clean should also be clean.

    amazon.com

    This can be used to clean bathrooms, showers, bathtubs, tile, grout, fiberglass, chrome wheel rims, boats, outdoor furniture, stainless-steel, ceramic sinks, and more. This is non-toxic, safe against septic systems, and free of bleach, acid, and harsh chemicals.

    Promising review: "Have you ever seen the movie The Santa Clause? There's a scene where Tim Allen's character shaves away his white beard and then ~WHOOSH!~ it reappears instantaneously. That's basically my bathtub and soap scum. I've tried many products to keep it at bay, but this is the only one that has ever really worked. Not only does it have a cute dog on the packaging, it also allows me to (easily!) wipe away dastardly soap scum without having to use a lot of muscle! Which is great, because I don't exactly have a lot of muscle to use." —Mallory McInnis

    Get it from Amazon for $17.88.

    12. A pack of Bottle Bright tablets that will clean your old, grimy water bottles and restore them to their former glory, no scrubbing needed.

    amazon.com

    Just fill the bottle with water and drop in a tablet. Let it work its magic for half an hour and then rinse out.

    Promising review: "In all fairness, I first heard of this product while watching Shark Tank, and their pitch was impressive so I gave the underdog a try. Now, I'm on my fourth re-order. My whole family drinks out of various name brand bottles, coffee mugs, etc. The fact is, they are rarely cleaned because they are a part of our daily lives and they are a pain in the ar$e to clean, because of the inconvenience that they are not dishwasher-safe, or don't fit. The answer is these tablets. They work and they're simple to use." —K.R.

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $8 or 36 for 22.

    13. A pack of brushes to attach to your drill so your power tool can do all the hard work. All good cleaners are also good delegators.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This kit comes with three nylon brushes that can attach to almost any cordless drill.

    Promising review: "I let my tub get extra dirty on purpose because I knew this brush set was coming. In five minutes my tub was sparkling clean. This item is no joke. The flat brushes are awesome for big surfaces and the cone brush hits the hard to reach corners. I liked them so much I bought a set for my mom." —Jason B.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    14. A leather cleaner you can count on to help bring life back to your old furniture. Welcome back, old friends!

    Just mix this concentrate with water, put it in a spray bottle, spray, and wipe off.

    Promising review: "My 15-year-old leather sectional hadn't been cleaned or conditioned in three to four years because I couldn't find anything that worked well without causing it to look blotchy. The color was also fading and I thought it was a goner. After some elbow grease, the sectional looks great! It's now back to its original color without being blotchy. More importantly, the suppleness has returned. I can actually say that it looks as good as the day we bought it." —jellybean55

    Get it from Amazon for $16.90.

    15. A handheld vacuum to grab when you have mini messes to deal with and don't feel like setting up the stand-up vacuum.

    Promising review: "This little guy cleaned up Lola's crafting and mine as well. Leather couch, tile flooring, and upholstered chairs. The only glitter left is what needs to be. It is the holidays after all. The attachments are a quick snap-in, snap-out; easy to carry. It's said a picture is worth a thousand words." —Julie

    Get it from Amazon for $108.98+ (available with or without accessories).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product is great! All their products are great! But this new product they have developed knocks it out of the ball park! The pictures (above) are pictures of a 2007 Nissan Titan truck I was detailing for a customer. The seats were disgusting and stained. I CAN ASSURE YOU ALL I USED WAS CAR GUYS SUPER CLEANER to clean the seats. I simply sprayed this all over the seat until it was damp, scrubbed with a detail brush, then vacuumed all of it up and dried it with a microfiber. The results speak for themselves. This really is a SUPER CLEANER that is capable of cleaning mostly every interior surface and does an amazing job at it!" —Joseph L.

    Run a bath, add the jet cleaner, wait for all the grime to eject from your jets, and then wipe down the tub.

    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." —Amazon Customer

    20. A pet hair sweeper that does the impossible and actually gets fur off all your furniture and carpets.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Holy cow this is magic. I have a 230 pound Mastiff. I have purchased any and everything claiming to get dog hair off car carpet. I have used at least three different vacuums and attachments. Lately I have been using a microfiber towel because it had some grip. Then this piece of magic arrived. It gets every single hair no matter how embedded. There were hairs I had a hard time removing with my fingers. The Fur-Zoff pulled them right out. This has cut my hair-removal time in half! Thank you for this savior of a tool." —David R.

    22. Dishwasher cleaning tablets that remove limescale and mineral buildup so your machine can *actually* get the dishes clean and ready for mealtime.

    Promising review: "Works extremely well. We haven't done any cleaning on our dishwasher in five years, and the sliding trays were tough to pull out and push in, there was detergent build up all over the inside, and there was a milky film on all our cups. I bought this, ran the dishwasher with two tablets while it was empty, and the difference was astounding. There was still some build up and I figured it would require another cycle, so I popped another two tablets in, ran the machine a second time, and now it looks and sounds brand new. No more film on the glasses, no more dirty dishes from clogged sprayers, no more odors, and no more build-up around the door seals." —Martoune

    23. A dog paw cleaning device so Fido doesn't mess up your clean home every time they come back inside.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Best. Thing. Ever. This product works like a charm. It gets the sand from between their pads, and is gentle enough that even my most stubborn pup tolerates it! I have a terrier/schnauzer that likes to dig, a mini golden doodle that is prissy about her paws and a standard labradoodle puppy that is still very fuzzy. We have a farm where it is extremely sandy and we stay in a travel trailer. The amount of sand they were tracking in to the camper was ridiculous. It takes me three minutes to clean and dry off all of their paws. Seriously the best purchase I have made!" —Rachel

    Get it on Amazon for $11.60+ (available in six colors and three sizes).

    24. An extendable microfiber duster set so your roommate doesn't turn on the fan and create a dust storm.

    Promising review: "Perfect for my needs. Love the telescoping design and that it has no protruding joints that would prevent it from fitting underneath furniture with low clearance. Reaches under, behind and around all the tight spaces I can't get to without moving heavy furniture around. The duster is also very lightweight and can handle delicate situations." —Sjay

    Get it on Amazon for $15.99.

    25. An OXO Deep Clean Brush Set with durable bristles to reach those teeny-tiny crevices you usually ignore because they're too hard to reach.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I HIGHLY recommend these brushes for grout. If you are on the fence of 'Ehhh do I NEED a grout brush? I could just scrub the floor...' Stop. Get these brushes. They are stiff and cut down the elbow grease time incredibly. Plus you can use them on anything. Pictures are the difference from when I cleaned the bathroom floor vs. the hallway." —Jennifer

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (available in two colors).

    26. A Black + Decker power scrubber with a nice handle so you can clean your kitchen sans wrist pain.

    Promising review: "I love the scrubber and use it mainly for cleaning the bathroom. Works great on my glass shower doors, sink, and tub. The brush attachment is also great for cleaning the grout lines between tiles and around the tub. Small size is easy to handle too." —LNR, New York

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    27. A pack of stainless-steel wipes so your sink can look clean enough to eat out of.

    amazon.com

    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, 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

    Promising review: "Always trying to find ways to live more sustainably and with less waste. Blueland is a perfect way to do that with re-using the same bottles and you can re-up whenever you need to. I ended up purchasing another foaming hand soap bottle for the bathroom — I would order extra of the hand soap tablets because it does go pretty quick compared to the rest." —Cait F.

    Get it from Blueland for $39.
