    amazon.com

    Promising review: "You guys. I’m embarrassed to even show you this. The grout around our tub was DISGUSTING. It was never caulked right and it got gross very quickly. I would scrub. The cleaning lady would scrub. It would get worse. Well, I came across this in a BuzzFeed list, and this stuff made me curious. I don’t know why it doesn’t have 10,000 good reviews. Seriously. All I did was squeeze it on and walk away. I let it sit overnight. Check this out. Buy it. Like today." —KarynB

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    2. Dye- and chlorine-free dishwasher detergent pods so you can finally tackle that mountain of bowls in your sink all at once. They're made with mineral-based ingredients, are cruelty-free, and come in compostable packaging!

    Dropps

    Based in the Philadelphia area, Dropps is a mother and son-founded small business focused on making sustainable, eco-friendly, and low-waste kitchen and laundry cleaning products. 

    Promising review: "My husband is the dish cleaner, and being an engineer, he is very particular. He gets kind of cranky if the dishes are not clean and the glasses are not clear. He has been using these pods for a couple of years, and he asked me to order more. So, if it passes his scrutiny, I think they are a great product. And, environmentally safe!" —Anonymous

    Get a pack of 64 from Dropps for $25+ (also available in packs of 120 and 180, in unscented or lemon-scented, and subscribers can save 25 percent). 

    3. A non-toxic spot remover to tackle just about any stain you'd assume was permanent. From coffee and tomato sauce to tar and blood (!), it's got your couches and carpets covered.

    The same couch without the pen scribbles

    It's small enough to keep with you on the go, and is super easy to use — just apply it to the stain, let it sit for a few minutes, then wash in the machine or by hand as usual. In fact, BuzzFeed Shopping editor Elizabeth Lilly said she once recommended this to a friend "who fell in a puddle of motor oil on a sidewalk, then accidentally wiped it on her camel coat. It got the stains out!"

    Promising review: "I love this stuff! I stumbled upon it years ago at my local quilt shop of all places. It does exactly what it says it will do, it takes out any stain you throw at it. I was most impressed by how it takes out blood — I had an 'accident' in the middle of the night wearing light pink PJs. I had just gotten the PJs from a friend for my birthday and was devastated at the thought of them being ruined. Before washing them (and risking the stain setting), I dabbed a few drops of the spot removal on the spot, scrubbed the stain with an old toothbrush, and left it sitting for about a half hour. I did that twice. To say it did a good job on the spot is an understatement; you couldn't even tell there was a spot to begin with! I call it the little magic in a bottle, it's a lifesaver! You must buy it, don't wait." —Stiixgirl

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $9.98 (also available as a pack of three). 

    4. A weekly shower cleaner you can — as the name says — "wet and forget." Just spray it on, let it sit overnight, and wipe it off the next day for a cleaner shower — no hard scrubbing required.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had a horrible gray ring in the bottom of my shower that was impossible to remove. I had tried the Dawn Dish Soap method (with a lot of scrubbing) and had even used toilet bowl cleaner to try to remove the soap scum. My next step was to tear out and replace the shower pan and tile. I figured this was my last chance. I ordered the Wet and Forget Shower Spray and really coated the shower walls and floor pan and walked away. I CANNOT begin to tell you how happy I was to rinse down the walls sometime later and watch all that crud roll right down the drain!! This is the best product I have ever used in my life!! Works great and no toxic fumes!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.89 (also available in a pack of two).

    5. A drill brush kit that simply attaches to your drill to give your toughest stains a run for their money. This set includes three types of brushes in different shapes and sizes to suit corners, flat surfaces, and everywhere in between.

    amazon.com

    Need a drill? Here's one.

    Promising review: "Bought these on a whim and was skeptical if they would really help, but man am I glad I did! They made cleaning our glass shower door and fiberglass shower a breeze! Don't really want to admit how long it had been between cleanings, but the shower shined like it never had before (even with using tough elbow grease and a standard bristle brush). No issues with the brushes leaving marks, but definitely want to err on the side of caution on how long you stay in a spot. Used the large flat circular brush for the door and walls, and the round toilet bowl type brush worked great in the corners and on fixtures." —Molly

    Get a set of three brush heads from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in soft, medium, stiff, and ultra-stiff bristles).

    6. Dishwasher cleaning tablets, because, seriously, how clean can your dishes really be if your dishwasher itself is a mess? Just pop them into the tray where you'd normally put detergent (or on the bottom of your dishwasher, if you're washing dishes at the same time), and run as usual!

    amazon.com

    Use them monthly or as needed — plus, they're among Amazon's climate pledge friendly products!

    Promising review: "After using this product, I am happy to report that my $5 investment saved me over $500. I was ready to replace my dishwasher due to super cloudy glasses, residue, and just not getting clean. Then, I became aware that the water softener no longer was doing its job, so I had the rental company replace it. Dishwasher performance improved somewhat. I decided to do two more loads before deciding to purchase a new one. Then I saw a product test review for Affresh in a magazine. I was ordering some stuff from Amazon anyway, so I added that to my order. When it came, I tossed one of the tablets into the bottom of the full machine, and ran the regular cycle. I did not expect the results I got! My glassware that I thought was permanently etched and ruined came out like new. Same with cutlery. The difference is unbelievable. I will use this faithfully on a monthly basis, as recommended. I can even put it on my subscribe and save order, so I will get a new pack every six months. I am amazed!" —Sheila

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $5.99.

    7. An eco-friendly hard water stain remover to give you the crystal clear shower doors you always wanted but never knew how to obtain.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We tried everything to get rid of hard water stains and nothing worked. We were getting our house ready to sell and our tub and sink were a mess. We tried this product and it worked immediately, restoring everything to like-new. It was fast and really worked! We even used it to clean our glass stovetop. It was amazing how clean it got things. I have a bad back and have to be careful about scrubbing things and it takes no effort to use. We use it in our new house and love it!" —Bradley

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    8. A power scrubber that's like an electric toothbrush for your whole bathroom. Use it to reach smaller areas, like grout and fixtures, or anywhere that could use a little TLC (Truly Lustrous Cleaning).

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed Shopping editor Natalie Brown has and loves this: "I'm obsessed! This thing works small miracles: I cleaned about half of my bathroom's grout to its original sparkling-clean cream color in 40 minutes, and it took honestly no effort at all. And — as if easy, sparkling grout wasn't enough! — it busted through some serious soap-scum buildup in my bathtub (thanks, fancy soap and slow-draining tub) in less than a minute.

    Honestly, when I first tried the scrubber out, I didn't see too many uses for it other than for grout. But after owning it for a while, I've realized that while I don't need it every single week, it's priceless for the occasions I encounter tough gunk that I'd otherwise only conquer with excessive patience and elbow grease."

    Get it from Amazon for $19.59+ (also available as a deluxe kit).

    9. A pet hair remover you can use on furniture, bedding, clothes, or anything where shedding tends to accumulate. Best of all? It's totally reusable, requires none of that annoying sticky film, and is eco-friendly!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my cat-loving life? Sticky rollers work fine for clothes, but this is the only product that has ever COMPLETELY removed all the cat hair from my bed. I have a long-haired 20-pound tabby and if you run your hands up his back a few times and fling the hair everywhere, it looks like it's snowing — he never stops shedding no matter what I do. After using the ChomChom, I can put on a black dress and roll around on my bed and not get a single hair on me. It's absolutely amazing. Everyone is getting one for Christmas, even if they don't have a pet. I don't care, it's THAT good." —Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    10. A walnut sponge that, dare we say, is just as attractive as it is effective? It's plant-based, hypoallergenic, and nontoxic, and its walnut scrubbing side can cut through that stubborn residue on your dishes.

    Public Goods

    Public Goods is a New York City-based small business that makes home goods, cleaning, and personal hygiene products designed with sustainability and affordability in mind. The company uses a membership model, which includes access to their products at direct-to-consumer prices, and free shipping for orders over $45.

    Promising review: "This is great for dishes and countertops, but really, scrubbing this sponge all over my face and head feels the closest to purifying my soul I've ever gotten." —Jennifer B.

    Get a four-pack from Public Goods for $4.75 (includes a free two-week membership, then you can join for $79 per year).

    11. A carpet spot-removing spray to help you keep your cool the next time the dog/kid/spouse makes a mess on that white rug you insisted on getting.

    amazon.com

    It's water-based, non-flammable, and odor-free.

    Promising review: "It’s a miracle in a bottle. My German Shepherd mix decided to pull a black fountain pen out of my purse and chew it to pieces on my beige carpet while I was sleeping — this cleaner lifted the stain, and now it’s like the devastation my dog caused never happened! As soon as I saw it lifting the ink, I got back on Amazon and bought more bottles. I will never let myself run out of this. I use it in my Bissell carpet cleaner for some crazy good cleaning power. I’ve become that weird lady that goes arounds singing the praises of a cleaning product. No regrets." —L. Logan

    Get it from Amazon for $11.69+ (also available in packs of two, three, four, six, and 12).

    12. A red wine stain remover that's so miraculous, it'll ease any apprehensions you might have about hosting parties at your place from here on out. Now if only they made one for teeth...

    amazon.com

    For best results, absorb the excess liquid, then saturate the spot with the stain remover. Let it sit for one to five minutes, then blot it out. This product can also be used on hard surfaces to remove latex paint and grease.

    Promising review: "When you have anything white in your house and you have a love for red wine THIS PRODUCT IS A MUST! We had a dinner party of about 15 people in our house so I bought five bottles just in case. Someone spilled red wine on our brand new white couch. I was so mad, but I used this stuff and it was GONE. It didn't just take most of the red wine out — the red wine was GONE! No trace of it at all! I will buy more!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.

    13. A silicone toilet brush, because it's time to acknowledge that the bristled brushes of yore are straight-up unsanitary. Also, this one is actually... aesthetically pleasing?

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    It comes with a strong base, along with a pair of tweezers, and is a cinch to clean. 

    Promising review: "Is it an exaggeration to say that this toilet brush saved my life? Yes, yes it is. However, this brush did make my life considerably better. I never knew that cleaning a toilet could be such a wonderful and joyous experience. It has truly brought light to my life where before there was only scratchy, bristled sorrow. I used to dread cleaning the bathroom, but now, it is one of my favorite chores. The way the brush effortless cleans even the most stubborn of stains is truly magical. Ever since this brush came into my life, I feel like a new person, a better person. I have more energy and am in a better mood. Truly one of the best purchases I have ever made." —J. Reuter

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    14. A set of "UnPaper" Towels so you can wipe up spills without spending unnecessary money on rolls of Brawny — and since they're made of 100 percent cotton, just throw them into the washing machine and reuse them to cut down on waste!

    Juniper Seed Mercantile / Etsy

    Based in Littleton, Colorado, Juniper Seed Mercantile is a small business that sells eco-friendly cleaning supplies and all-natural bath products, from lip balms and night serums to laundry detergent and stain sticks.

    Promising review: "These 'paper' towels are made so incredibly well. They're very light, but sturdy, and so absorbent! I'm gonna save so much money on paper towels from now on. I'm in love!" —Vietnamese Cowgirl

    Get a set of six from Juniper Seed Mercantile on Etsy for $14+ (available in three sizes). 

    15. A swivel pet vacuum cleaner to get into those hard-to-reach spots (it costs hundreds of dollars less than the super-fancy models!).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    It's a pro when it comes to pet hair, and even comes with a pet hair corner tool for extra coverage. Since it's bagless, you won't have to spend unnecessary money on refills — and speaking of money, Bissell donates up to $10 to its pet foundation with every pet-related purchase.

    Promising review: "I've owned two Dyson pet vacuums. After the last Dyson died, I wasn't going to pay another $500 for one. I thought I'd give the Bissell a try. I really was not expecting much, since the price was so low. First use of the Bissell vacuum was an eye-opener! So much stuff came out of the carpet, we had to clean the canister after vacuuming a 4'x4' spot! Pretty disgusting. I'm now thinking the Dyson had stopped working much earlier than I realized. Both my husband and I agree that this Bissell sucks more animal fur up than a brand new Dyson. I'll never use another brand." —DK

    Get it from Amazon for $106.44.

    16. Or, if you want to do as little work as possible, a robot vacuum cleaner that — if we're being honest — will likely do a more thorough job of cleaning your floors than you would on your own. It works on practically any floor type, and is powerful enough to suck up even the thickest pet hair.

    amazon.com

    Use it with Alexa for voice control, or connect to the iRobot HOME app to schedule regular cleanings. It can run for up to 90 minutes before automatically recharging, comes with adaptive navigation to maneuver itself around your home, and can change its height depending on the surface. Just note that while it has cliff detection, it's wise to place a barrier near areas like stairs just to be safe.

    Promising review: "Much to my chagrin, the cats have been avoiding this like the plague. However, this little robot does its job well. We ignored the comments telling users to sweep/vacuum before the first go-round and let it vacuum up our cat hair-covered floors as-is. It actually did a really good job!!!! My fiancé and I were both impressed by how it was able to pick up everything visible to the human eye with its seemingly random path around the house. We let it roam around every other day or so, and it keeps our floors looking way cleaner than we thought possible! Almost like someone with pride of ownership lives here. We do have two thick-coated cats, and it has worked wonderfully for us!!! Our lint roller is getting a considerably smaller workout since we set up our new little friend. I am so impressed by this and wish we'd gotten one sooner. For the price, this is such an amazing deal. I’ve already recommended it to all my family and friends!!!!" —nanne

    Get it from Amazon for $244.99+ (available in two models and with added accessories).

    17. An iron stain remover, because there's nothing worse than seeing a ring of rust in your toilet, sink, or shower that — no matter how hard you scrub it — just. won't. disappear.

    Reviewer before-and-after photo showing a rust ring around a faucet and a rust-free faucet after using the product
    amazon.com

    It's septic-safe and non-abrasive. 

    Promising review: "I cannot say enough great things about this product. We just purchased a home that has a well with very high iron content in the water. I tried everything to remove the stains from our three toilets but nothing worked. I found this product online and immediately went to Amazon. The results blew me away. I didn't have to scrub at all. I let it sit in the tank for several hours, and the results floored me!" —T-urtle

    Get it from Amazon for $9.17+ (available in three sizes). 

    18. A Magic Eraser to get rid of all of those mysterious wall smudges, door marks, and light switch prints. Just wet it, squeeze it, and go to town!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Long story short, applying aerosol suntan lotion in your shower, which has hard water, is a horrible idea. The result was a seemingly permanent, spotty, orange stain all over the tub. Nothing, and I mean nothing, was doing the trick, no matter what we did — every cleaning product, bleach, ammonia, soaking it in dish soap, and even our steam mop, made zero improvement. A little elbow grease, and this magic sponge is the only thing that worked. I honestly don’t understand what makes this sponge so great, but it really is magic." —Jessi

    Get a pack of nine from Amazon for $6.97.

    19. A fume-free oven cleaner so you can finally get around to cleaning your oven after... how many years of avoiding it? Your parents will faint the next time they visit.

    amazon.com

    This NSF-certified product doesn't contain lye or harsh fumes, and reviewers say it works like a dream on caked-on messes if left on overnight.

    Promising review: "I don’t normally write reviews, but HOLY MOLY if you’re looking for an oven cleaner, BUY THIS ONE!! I’m fairly sure no one has ever cleaned my oven since the day it was installed in this apartment X years ago, and I’m embarrassed to admit that includes me (seven years living here). I wiped up spills and such after cooking, but never did a deep clean before because I thought it was going to be a gargantuan task. I sprayed on a layer of Easy Off foam, let it sit overnight, and started wiping it off with a wet sponge the next day. Talk about 'easy to remove' — this cut through YEARS of baked-on grease splatter like it was nothing. My sponge was black after the first swipe, but I could actually see clean metal! Many rinses/wipes later, I have an oven that looks almost new, save for a few spots on the door and oven top that need another spray/sit/wipe session to get the last of the baked-on splatter. This saved me SO MUCH work, I can’t believe how much better my oven looks now! 'Easy Off' definitely lives up to its name. They also advertise 'Fume Free' on the can, and I can happily report that’s true as well! This is a fantastic cleaner, well worth the purchase." —L. Lietzke

    Get it from Amazon for $6.88.

    20. A reusable Swiffer duster pad because, if you're anything like me, a little part of you dies every time you have to throw out the disposable ones. These are a great, eco-friendly option, they'll save you money, and they're cute to boot!

    Promising review: "I love these! They are really thick and they wipe up the dust easily. I actually bought three so I could keep one on while the other is being washed. I had no issues with getting it on my holder. Glad to have found these!" —Rebecca Jo

    Get it from TS Designs on Etsy for $5.49 (available in nine colors).

    21. An otherworldly room spray you'll want to spritz on pretty much everything in your home — including yourself. These sprays are packaged in gorgeous glass bottles, are non-toxic, and come in scents ranging from Clementine Lavender to Coconut Seagrass.

    Eight Hands Farm & Bee Co. / Etsy

    Eight Hands Farm & Bee Co. is a small business based in Lambertville, New Jersey that specializes in handcrafted home and body goods prepared in small batches.

    Promising review: "Love the linen scent! I’ve been trying to rid my home of other sprays/candles/products that have yucky chemicals. As I’m replacing with safe products, it’s been hard to order scents online before smelling. I’ve struck out with other companies a couple times, but I love everything I’ve purchased from here. The scents are so light and refreshing. Perfect! Thank you!!!" —Rachel May

    Get it from Eight Hands Farm & Bee Co. on Etsy for $12 (available in 11 scents). 

    22. A window blind duster brush to seriously cut down on the amount of time it takes to do what is likely one of your least favorite tasks.

    amazon.com, amazon.com, amazon.com

    Included are five reusable and washable microfiber cloths, which can also be used for cleaning hard-to-reach areas like air conditioner and car blinds.

    Promising review: "I love this product!! It works fantastically! I am a housekeeper for several private homes. My least favorite job... cleaning window blinds! I have used about every method there is, but the job is still very time consuming. The main reason it takes so long is you must clean each and every slat separately to do the job right. Not anymore! With this product you can clean two slats at once, and it cleans them the first swipe! The microfiber is the key to getting all the dust, and the design of the product makes it super easy! PLUS, this tool can be used on different types of blinds because it is flexible! I have used it on wooden shutters, plastic vertical patio door blinds, and horizontal metal 'mini' blinds. Additionally, the microfiber 'sleeve' that fits on the tool is washable, and it comes with five of them, so it's a real value — being reusable, and with so many to use, it should last a long time before they all completely wear out! This product deserves 10 stars!" —Sandy D

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    23. A wood polish and conditioner that'll make you think twice before replacing your scratched up furniture. It contains beeswax, which acts as a protective coating, along with oils that help condition the wood to keep it from drying out.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn-out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs who jumped up and scratched places. We also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were. Several other areas were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magical eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let it sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand-new. I'm buying a couple more so we can finish our cabinets and wood paneling. We're so glad we found this product." —Kris

    Get it from Amazon for $8.98.

    24. Some reusable microfiber cleaning cloths to get those windows looking streak-free and *spotless.* Also, you just have to wet them with water — really!

    amazon.com

    They also work on mirrors, and are designed to last for up to three years or 300 washes (they're washing machine-friendly!) to save you money. 

    Promising review: "This product is amazing! We recently moved back into a house we had been renting for the past three years. Little did we know our renters were absolutely disgusting and left every inch of the house a huge, dirty mess. I intended to use this only on our many windows, but then figured I would try it on the mirrors in the bathrooms and it worked amazingly. So I moved to the sinks and faucets, and they were literally dazzling! So, I figured I would try it on the tub. The renters apparently never used the water softener and also washed their huge wolfhounds in this tub. It was disgusting! It certainly took some elbow grease, but WOW! NO chemicals! No cleaning products! Just this one cloth! I am sold and you should be, too!!" —Carly

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in standard and eco packaging, and three colors). 

    25. An eco-friendly all-purpose cleaner that can be used on any sealed surface — and thanks to its refreshing grapefruit and lemon scent, you'll actually look for things you can wipe up with it.

    The all-purpose cleaner
    Humble Suds / Etsy

    Promising review: "I’m so thrilled to find alternatives to chemical cleaners, and these smell FANTABULOUS!!! Even drinkable, though I won’t, of course. I’ve already been going around the kitchen and bathroom spraying things to wipe down. Mmmm! Thank you for these super safe and super refreshing cleaners." —Sandy Grugan

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    In addition to a heavy-duty cleaning solution and polish, this set includes a non-abrasive cooktop scrubber, as well as a cooktop scraper that reviewers say is the *game-changing* element of this kit (and won't scratch your stove's surface). 

    Promising review: "Ok, so maybe I'm a weirdo. But, listen... guys... I'm obsessssed with this kit. I just got my first smooth glass-top range and I'm, let's just say, 'particular' about things. So, the crud that got stuck to it put me in a dark place. Then I got this kit. 1. The solution is amazing. Just a small amount is all it takes to make your range top sparkle. 2. The scrubbing pad is incredibly durable and gets off the majority of the mess. And guess what? When it starts looking really grungy and you think you need a new pad... you rinse it and it looks brand spankin' new again! 3. The scraper. Omg. The. Scraperrrr. All those spots that you thought were scratches or permanent blemishes? Guess what? They're not. And the scraper that comes with this kit will remove each of them effortlessly. Bottom line: Buy this kit immediately. Get off the fence and buy it. You will thank me, I assure you." —S. Bourgeois

    Get it from Amazon for $13.98.

    28. A trio of Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day essentials, because if there's anything that'll make you actually enjoy cleaning, it's this brand's dreamy scents.

    Promising review: "I love these. They smell great and clean well. I use them in the kitchen and to clean my pet area, since they’re safer than using other products with a lot of harsh chemicals. They also look really cute on my counter as a set. Love!" —Tilley K

    Get it from Amazon for $11.97+ (available in four scents). 

    29. Some bamboo charcoal air-purifying bags to *finally* get rid of that rancid cheese popcorn smell coming out of your old sneakers (you know the one). Just place them anywhere that needs some odor relief, and voila!

    Each bag lasts for up to two years, and when it stops working, you can empty the charcoal into your yard, since it's good for plants!

    Promising review: "I've had these on my Amazon wishlist for some time now, but finally bit the bullet when my son peed his pants (and henceforth his shoes) at school. Shoes smell bad when they're wet with just water, so imagine that, but worse. We did the best we could getting rid of the pee smell with vinegar and baking soda, etc., but there was still a slight smell to them. Ordered these and they came in the nick of time. Shoved one bag in each shoe for 24 hours and to our surprise... there was nothing! NO SMELL! Quite pleased with this purchase! Loved the packaging and that you can dump the contents in the garden when they no longer work. Would recommend." —SunAndSeaglass

    This adapter is compatible with most vacuum cleaner pipes, so all you have to do is attach it to your vacuum and guide it around your dryer to suck up excess and hard-to-reach lint. Too much lint build-up not only slows down the drying process, it's also a fire hazard, so this handy device can actually be considered a safety tool!

    Promising review: "Yes, we had a sock in our dryer vent!! This past summer, the lint trap broke on our dryer. Our kids ran the dryer regardless! What a disaster. Received my vacuum kit today, and now my clothes are dry! I sucked up the sock, as well as a piece of lint roller tape. Great product!" —Laurel Enoch

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98+ (available in five colors).

    31. An unassuming mop and bucket set that even professional house cleaners swear by for spotless floors.

    The mop head has a unique triangular shape for getting into hard-to-reach corners, and can be cleaned in the washing machine!

    Promising review: "This mop is fantastic!!! I clean for a living and use professional equipment provided to me...I use THIS mop at home and I like it even better! Easy to use, great on my vinyl plank flooring, and works great getting into small areas like around the toilet. I normally use a steam mop, or a microfiber mop head on a push mop and I think this mop does a much better job. Very happy with this purchase... would definitely recommend!" —Kellj23

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99+ (also available as a set with extra mop heads).

    32. A highly-rated air purifier so you can breathe a little easier at home. Reviewers also say it's effective at eliminating bad odors!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    In addition to a regular filter, this little machine comes with pet allergy and toxin absorbing filters, and can refresh the air five times per hour in rooms spanning up to 219 square feet.

    Promising review: "Bought because of crazy California wildfires. I put it in a room that is roughly 200 square feet that reeked of wildfire smoke. Set it on the highest setting and closed the door/windows. Within an hour the smell was GONE. I am thoroughly amazed. (BTW this was with the filter that came in the box). The highest setting is kinda loud, but it's definitely quieter than a normal room fan. Doesn't bother me as long as it serves the main purpose. Setting two is really quiet; you can sleep through that. Lowest setting is so quiet you can't even tell it's on. Highly recommend. Make sure you measure your room for square footage, as that definitely matters." —Jay777

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99+ (also available in black).
