    15. A pumice ring remover that will scrub your toilet so well, it'll look brand new — it's safe for sinks, showers, and pools as well.

    16. A biodegradable stain removal spray for fabrics, aka you won't have to throw out your favorite clothing because of accidental wine spills or grease stains. It even works on delicate items like silk and wool! Simply spray directly on the soiled spot, let it sit for 10 minutes, toss it in the washer, and that's it.

    17. A dishwasher cleaner for the gunk from your dirty dishes that doesn't just magically disappear — it gets stuck in tubes and pipes (kind of like how my little brother cleans his room by stuffing everything in his closet.) Anyway, just add this cleaner to the machine and it will remove water, grease, detergent, and food scraps.

    18. Wet & Forget shower cleaner because are you one of those folks who absolutely hates cleaning but likes things to be spotless? Well, this stuff is perfect because it requires absolutely no scrubbing. Just apply the odorless solution to your tub daily and rinse it off with water to make your bathroom look like one at the Ritz — no sponge required.

    20. A two-pack of grout cleaner because the outline of your floor tiles are not supposed to look like the platform of a subway station. That's gunk, grime, and dirt... and it can easily be removed with this product.

    21. A stainless steel cleaner and polish that even comes with a microfiber cloth you'll use again and again (and again). This solution is so good, you'll actually be able to see your reflection... and more importantly, it gets rid of scuffs, dirt, and fingerprints.

    22. A microwave cleaner and fridge odor absorber — just add vinegar and water to your "Angry Mama" before microwaving for seven minutes and it'll loosen the grime, splatter, and spills for an easier clean. You can then add baking soda to "Chilly Mama" and pop it in the fridge to keep it fresh and odor-free for months.

    23. The Pink Stuff all-purpose cleaning paste that is extremely effective without being harsh on furniture, kitchen tops, pans, floors, rust, and much more. You'll finally be able to remove old stains that you had given up on (like the marker art that's been covering your walls for years).

    24. A Bissell power fresh steam mop to help get rid of over 99% of germs on your floors, plus it can even pick up sticky hard-to-get stains. The microfiber brush scrubs clean while the delicious spring scent fragrance disc fills up the room better than any expensive candle can.

    25. OxiClean stain remover that can get tough stains out of fabrics, even if they aren't machine-washable. Simply mix the chlorine-free powder with water on nearly any surface or fabric and start scrubbing.

    26. Machine-washable dusting slippers that are made out of chenille fabric to make cleaning your floors effortless. Just slip these on and watch them work their magic while you workout, wash dishes, walk from room to room, or do anything else that has you up on your feet.
