    Promising review: "This stuff is excellent. It performs as promised, it has a very nice scent, no fumes, and leaves shower clean with no scrubbing actually necessary. It is very easy to apply and rinse off. It is designed very well, with squirting spout separate from the large container and attached by a longish tube, so you don't have to hold the heavy container while applying the product. I've been using it for quite a while now, and I love it. I highly recommend it." β€”Stephanie Martin

    2. 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).

    amazon.com

    This TikTok-famous paste can clean literally ANY mess whether it's in your bathroom, kitchen, basement or anywhere in between.

    Promising review: "Amazing product. 99% all natural... no chemicals, no toxic odor. Shower wall hard water stains completely wiped out. I used other products on my 10-year-old oven door and it never came as clean. First try, I wiped on, wiped off. (Recommended at least five minutes.) Second try, I applied Pink and left it over night. Baked on grit was softened enough I could use a spoon to scrap. End result... BIG DIFFERENCE. By far the best versatile, nontoxic, gentle abrasive product. I would love a case so I could go crazy." β€”ap808

    Get it from Amazon for $8.39+ (available in packs of one or two).

    3. A garbage disposal brush so you can avoid the unpleasant odor that seeps out when old food gets stuck in the drain. The sturdy hard bristle brush ensures that you 1. never have to stick your hand down there (yuck!) and 2. your sink gets a THOROUGH cleaning.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product can be a major kitchen product if you have issues with odors in your garbage disposal. We eat a lot of cereals for breakfast and almost all are loaded with preservatives, which are like glue when they get wet. For two years, we could not get rid of a foul odor for more than a day or two. I purchased this as a last resort, but only expecting it to help a little. The first time I used it, I was amazed at how much gunk was brushed away and odor was reduced." β€”C. D. Cornett

    Get it from Amazon for $19.03.

    4. A 12-pack of liquid ant killer bait stations to nip all those spring pests in the bud. Your little insect problem won't get in the middle of your workday because these pre-filled Borax containing packs do all the work for you.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is my first spring in my new home and around April, my cupboards started filling up with ants. I tried cleaning with bleach, and again with vinegar solution, but nothing kept them at bay for longer than a few hours. I ordered a bunch, and then went down the street to pick up extras from the hardware store. I set out the traps in the "hot spots" above my cabinets and by the kitchen sink. Within 12 hours, hundreds of ants were, I kid you not, SPRINTING to and from the liquid from holes in the caulking I couldn't even see. In less than 24 hours, no ants were bothering with the stray crumbs in my cupboard anymore." β€”EAC

    5. A descaler for single use coffee dispensers because you were today-years-old when you realized these machines aren't self-cleaning. There's definitely built-up gunk back there but before you toss your precious java maker out the window, simply **add** this solution to your cart. You'll be tasting deliciously fresh coffee in no time.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Purchased this Descaler as our several year old Keurig Single cup coffee brewer no longer brewed a full cup of coffee. Water flow was very slow and coffee cup only half-filled. Following the simple directions on the bottle and using just half a bottle of Descaler, the Keurig machine was restored to full performance. It also brewed a hotter cup of coffee! Very good product as far as I am concerned." β€”Barnett Tessler

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    6. 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.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had a stained mattress that I'd been covering with a mattress pad for years. As I was preparing for a move, I decided to give this a try and see if it could remove the stains that had been there for well over SEVEN YEARS. I honestly don't even remember what caused the stains, but it removed them! I honestly can't believe the results. I wish I'd done this sooner!" β€”Little Greek

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98.

    7. A pack of water bottle cleaning tablets which require no scrubbing at all. It's perfect for those stained containers, dishes, and mugs and gets rid of residual odors.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug β€” I tried everything. Bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER HydroFlask to replace it. Now eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand-new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING." β€”Amazon Customer

    8. A two-pack of Goo Gone adhesive spray for when your toddler decides to play interior decorator and you're stuck removing leftover sticker residue. This miracle product will make that impossible task incredibly easy and quick.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I needed to remove the tank emblems from my Harley. Getting the metal part off is easy but it left behind nearly one-fourth of what was once goo but was now a rock hard layer of crud. I tried a few different solvents with no results. Goo Gone practically melted it away and i was able to remove it with very little effort. It took several applications and scrapings with a good scraper a little at a time but it's gone now and you can't tell it was ever there." β€”D. Kells

    Get two 12-ounce bottles from Amazon for $16.98.

    9. A chemical-free natural cleaner that leaves your windows, glass, and mirrors streak-free with effective, but minimal, ingredients β€” just some vinegar and essential oils.

    10. A TubShroom Drain Hair Catcher which will save you $$$ on plumbing. This fits into most drains, collects all that fallen hair, plus is as easy to remove and clean as it is to pop in.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I shed so much hair, and it has always been an issue when it comes to showering! I used to try to catch the hairs before it went to the drain in which I would later have to clean once clogged, and now I encourage and move them towards the drain and my TubShroom! It truly is amazing, and the silicone material allows it to not rust like the old metal tub sink screens. It makes cleaning so much easier, and I am amazed every time. It even caught my dog's hair, and he has short, thin hairs!!! Highly, highly recommend this for every home." β€”S.K.M

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in six colors).

    amazon.com

    And it takes just 15 minutes to see results; simply run your water, pour in some cleaner, and start your jets.

    Promising review: "This stuff is seriously amazing! I am relentless about cleaning my tub because I use it so often. Before I purchased this, I used the typical homemade recipe of bleach and powdered dishwashing soap. I’d have to run two or three cycles to get it crystal clear. One cycle with this stuff, 15 minutes, and the results are amazing! I first ran my tub with the solution, then drained it and wiped it down with a sponge. When I refilled the tub up and reran the jets, I kid you not the water was CRYSTAL CLEAR! I’m so impressed!" β€”Chelsea

    Get it from Amazon: a bottle good for four cleans for $16.99, or a gallon good for 64 cleans for $59.99.

    12. A pair of bamboo charcoal shoe deodorizers so you can go sockless and never have to worry about your shoes emitting an unpleasant odor.

    Yi Yang / BuzzFeed

    These can be reused for up to two years. To rejuvenate, simply place the bags in the sun once a month for at least one hour. To learn more, check out a review of the bamboo charcoal shoe deodorizers.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical about these when they arrived because I've never used anything like it before. I did NOT want something to cover up odors or make my feet smell like a robust dryer-sheet. I just wanted the odor gone. We've been having temperatures here over 100 degrees lately and although I wear socks with my Vans, they were getting a bit "pungent". I slid one of these into each sneaker and hoped for the best. Less than 12 hours later, the odor was gone... GONE! When a product works like it says it should = happy customer. I've only used them for about a week now, so I haven't had to recharge them yet, but I'm really happy I bought these." β€”C. Welte

    Get them from Amazon for $9.95.

    13. A Bar Keepers powdered cleanser to make your stained surfaces shine bright like a diamond. You can use this on almost every surface on the inside or outside of your home including BBQ grills, sports equipment, floors, bathroom, and kitchen surfaces.

    amazon.com

    The hardworking formula is safe for use on surfaces in your bathroom and kitchen β€” including cookware!

    Promising review: "This stuff is like magic! Straight up wizardry. I love it! I initially bought it to clean my sink, which is porcelain and even though it's not even a year old, is just holding on to all the coffee and tea staining. I'd say it took less than a minute after making a paste with Bar Keepers Friend to clean the sink up to a nearly new shine. Taking a look at the can it's easy to find bunches of ways to use this stuff and each application is better than the last. Stainless steel, porcelain, ceramic, copper, brass, fiberglass, corian, chrome and aluminum. See? Magic! Anyhow, I've used it in the sink, in the bathroom, to clean stainless steel pots and pans on a 17-year-old Revereware tea kettle (which I thought would never be restored to its former loveliness, btw). This is a product that I will buy again and again and will happily recommend to anyone." β€”Nicci Stephenson

    Get it from Amazon for $7.93+ (available in packs of one, two, or three).

    14. A rust stain remover spray that will do the hard work for you β€” no elbow grease required. This spray breaks down rust so you'll only need to give your shower a quick swipe and you're done.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I used it on our tubs, toilets, sinks, and shower. It took one bottle of this stuff to achieve the same result as three bottles of other brands. I will buy this again hands-down. I just sprayed, walk away for a few minutes, and wiped and rinsed." β€”Carrie D.

    Get it from Amazon for $4.98.

    15. 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.

    16. A drill brush attachment to remove deep stains from hard surfaces. Use this scrubber on your stove, bathtub, and sink to easily take off rust, grime, and dirt.

    amazon.com

    Make sure to use them only on surfaces you're pretty sure they won't scratch! And you can alway test in a discreet area first to check.

    Promising review: "I bought this on a whim because my walk-in shower is just a pain to clean. I'm 51 and I guess I've just been old school with how I clean, so hand scrubbing it was for years. The FIRST time I used this to clean my shower it took five minutes AND it scrubbed my shower more clean than it has been in years. In the corners, the floor, the glass door...everything came out squeaky clean. I'm NEVER cleaning my shower by hand again." β€”Terry

    Get the set of three brushes from Amazon for $12.70 (available in six colors).

    17. A stained glass window decal so anyone who wants a bit more privacy but doesn't want to block the light from outside. This will allow for rainbows and sunshine to enter the room without anyone being able to see inside.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My kitchen window is on the sidewalk near the community mailboxes. Lots of people walking by. I loathe mini blinds which collect dust and grease. Especially since the stove is next to the window. Curtains are better, but still collect cooking smells and grease particles. I installed this in about ten minutes. It lets in light, but hides me from nosy people." β€”Gayle Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $26.98 (seven roll sizes available).

    18. A Hoover PowerDash compact carpet cleaner meant for pet owners β€” but even non-fur parents will love it. The vacuum uses an antimicrobial brush, hot water, and shampoo to suction out any dirt, fluids, and odor from your carpet or rug.

    amazon.com

    It weighs about 13 pounds β€” heavier-duty carpet cleaners usually weigh around 20 β€” so you won't feel completely exhausted by the time you're done with the living room.

    Promising review: "I run dog services, boarding, and daycare out of my home. My carpet sees high traffic regularly and potty accidents on occasion. Love this Hoover! Holy moly! It picks up an INCREDIBLE amount of deeply imbedded debris, dirt, stains, and hair. The difference in how much cleaner my carpet is after using it is OUTSTANDING!! I regularly vacuum and spot clean with other carpet cleaners and couldn’t fathom the filth I was actually living in after using the Hoover. It’s easy to assemble and light weight too. You can’t deny the results when cleaning out the dirty water tank. Easily the best purchase I have made for my small business! Very impressive!" β€”Patty A Selock

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99.

    19. A two-for-one toy chest and bean bag chair because your child's room was starting to look like FAO Schwarz if a tornado hit it. Don't pack it into an overcrowded closet, just add this to cart.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My daughter has over 40 stuffed animals and this thing holds ALL of them! It keeps everything off of the floor and I even stuffed a heavy comforter in there to free up drawer space. I packed this thing and haven't had any issues with the zipper at all." β€”Chelsea

    Get it from Amazon for $29.97 (available in three colors).

    20. A Bar Keepers soft cleanser that can remove stains, rust, scum, and grime from just about any surface in your home. It's perfect for hard-to-remove stains like permanent markers and knife marks on kitchen plates.

    amazon.com

    And yup, it's safe to use in your bathroom, kitchen, and anywhere else that needs a good scrub and polish.

    Promising review: "I was so bummed when I scratched up my pretty white sink with pots and pans. I thought I'd need to have it replaced or try to sand it and refinish it somehow, but I bought this stuff as a last ditch effort to fix it myself. It takes some elbow grease to make them go away, the scratches don't just wipe off, but if you scrub at them for a few minutes they melt away pretty quickly. After two rounds my sink looks nearly brand-new again. It also worked on a few mineral stains in my bathtub that I thought were permanent after soft scrub failed to remove them. Again, a little of this stuff, the scrubby side of a blue sponge, a little bit of effort and they were gone!" β€”Dan Borden

    Get it from Amazon for $9.89.

    Promising review: "This is a supreme product. The bags are made of thick, quality plastic. It is very easy to seal and to vacuum. I placed a dryer sheet in each sealed bag to keep the clothes smelling fresh. My closet looks so well organized, I have much more room and my winter clothes are stored safely and beautifully. I highly recommend this product." β€”AA

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in four sizes).

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

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am blown away. I took one swipe at my toilet and was instantly giddy. Some elbow grease and a short time later, I could swear I just went out and bought a new toilet. Doesn't harm the porcelain, good for the environment, and works better than I ever thought imaginable. If you're on the fence, get it now - you won't regret it! I also still have most of the pumice stone left after this, so if you have multiple toilets (we only have one bathroom) you should be totally fine with just the one." β€”Lexii Klopp

    Get it from Amazon for $11.28+.

    23. A drawer organizer which will make the impossible possible β€” finding a pair of socks without ransacking your dresser drawers. Oh, the joys of being able to pull out a matching pair of undergarments and basics in under 10 seconds.

    It comes with four bins: a six-cell (for scarves/ties), an eight-cell (for underwear, etc.) a seven-cell (for bras), and a 24-cell (for socks).

    Promising review: "No matter how neatly I fold my bras and underwear, they always seem to become a big jumble in the drawer. These organizers are perfect for keeping everything in place, and you won't forget about those items you own that end up buried at the back." β€”M. Hanson

    Get the set of four from Amazon for $15.87 (available in six colors).

    24. A squeegee broom with rubber bristles to remove hard water deposit stains from your shower door, pick up spills, catch pet hair, and make your cloudy windows crystal clear.

    BuzzFeed/Emma Lord

    It's popular for cleaning pet hair, too! The natural rubber bristles attract fur on multiple surfaces, like carpet, tile, hardwood, and linoleum AND the built-in rubber squeegee (aka the thing you use on your windshield) is great for cleaning windows and spills. Check out our in-depth FURemover review.

    Promising review: "This is by far my favorite broom! I am a little obsessive about cleaning and this does so much! It gets the dog hair that is invisible to my eyes, it finds dirt that is super fine, and it goes from room to room without any issues! Cat hair on the carpet? This gets it off! Crumbs from dinner on the tile floor? This finds it! Spill water on the hardwood? No problem! I buy everyone one of these and I've only ever heard great things from them too!" β€”I Spend Too Much Money

    25. A tea organizer so you don't crowd your kitchen counter with a gazillion boxes. Plus, you won't have to make a mess rifling through a million spice bottles and condiments to find the one you're looking for.

    amazon.com

    This organizer can hold approximately 100 tea bags.

    Promising review: "I love tea. In fact, I don't drink coffee so I buy a lot of varieties of tea and then put it in my cabinet and promptly forget them. I finally saw this product and bought it to help organize them. Who knew I had so many different teas! I totally forgot I had most of them. Now I have a neat display of my teas and can easily choose what tea I am in the mood for without taking things out of my cupboard. It looks great on my countertop near my fridge and doesn't take a lot of room. Love it. It's my new favorite thing. Worth every penny. Now I think I need another one." β€”Kasia K

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in two styles).

    26. A dishwasher cleaner for the gunk from your dirty dishes that doesn't just magically disappear β€” 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.

    amazon.com

    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 dishes just not getting clean. Then, I became aware that the water softener was no longer 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. 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 per the instructions and ran the regular cycle. I did not expect the results I got! The 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 every month, 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!" β€”Sheila

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I use this as my seat at my home work station in my small apartment and I love it! It's firm, and the perfect height. I love the light gray color and the fabric feels like velvet. For $53, you can't beat this deal." β€”Hayley Eiden

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99 (available in twelve colors).

    28. 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.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We just moved into a house that was a rental for a couple of years and the bathroom tile was GROSS. I previously scrubbed them with Scrubbing Bubbles, and felt that the floor was 'clean' but it still always looked gross. Then, this stuff. My type-A clean-freak personality is in total bliss. THIS STUFF WORKS. End of story. I still have a couple of stains that just won’t budge. But for the most part, the floors look great. If I had to, I’d have no problem eating off my bathroom floors now. Amazing." β€”Ashley

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $39.95.

    29. A two-for-one over the door mirror and jewelry organizer so that you can remove that huge, expensive vanity from your cart. This will allow you to store as many accessories as your heart desires and allows you to get a full glimpse of your ensemble without taking up more space.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This organizer can hang over the door or on a wall. It even has battery-powered LED lights inside to help you see all your jewelry and a lock to keep everything safe.

    Promising review: "There is much room in this very organized cabinet. It had loads of earring space, necklace space, and the shelves are nice for miscellaneous items like sunglasses, watches, pins, etc. It has two little drawers for miscellaneous items and a pouch under the right side necklace rack. It has several different heights you can hang it at if you are using the over the door mount. The LED lights are awesome and illuminate really well. It came well wrapped up in plastic and inside a styrofoam box and not a scratch was on it. I LOVE this and highly recommend." β€”CindiL

    Get it from Amazon for $118.99+ (available in three colors).

    30. Heavy duty cleaning wipes that aren't just your run-of-the-mill wipes β€” they can remove grease, tar, ink, paint, permanent marker, wax, scuffs, lip stick, nail polish, food, drinks, pet stains, and so much more.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is the best sheet to use to remove grease stains. I was able to clean the microwave easily. Hope this picture shows the difference. I did not need to scrub. Just a few wipes and the dirt was gone. Smells like you’re eating an actual orange... big plus for me. My hands did not get dry after using either." β€”OneSourOne

    31. Interlocking drawer bins because right now, every drawer looks like a junk drawer. Keep all of your items organized and toss what you don't need β€” like your assortment of fast food condiments and duck sauce packets that you'll never use.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This set has been perfect for my desk at work. The clutter in my drawer was so annoying to sift through before I found the right pen or paperclip. Now everything is easy to find and well organized. Nice to be able to customize arrangement as well. I may purchase more of these for cluttered drawers at home." β€”ccc_wood

    32. A microwave cleaner and fridge odor absorber β€” 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.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I sent these to my sister who loves to keep her home clean, clean, clean. I used the Angry Mama in my own kitchen with white vinegar (the image seems to show a balsamic vinegar bottle). It works wonderfully for the microwave. We used to use a wet towel to do this and it just didn't feel as sanitary. The fun piece of these kitchen tools is that the kids love them too. They want to use them. The 2-year-old filled the cool mama with baking soda and stuck it in her chosen spot in the fridge. The 4-year-old has taken over keeping the microwave clean (with parental supervision, of course). They are cute and work as we want them to work." β€”Stacey Kullgren

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    33. Water storing crystals for plants that will help them get just the right amount of hydration. The crystals absorb excess water and release it when they need more.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have deck rail flower boxes and they get full sun most of the day. I filled in the drain holes to hold more water and added these to the soil. Both made a huge difference in the quality of life for the plants. They were and still are gorgeous even if I couldn't water every day. I do have to admit I used more per planter than the recommended amount." β€”Pattijwr

    Get it from Amazon for $11.49.

    34. 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.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have linoleum floors which have seen years of abuse, as I live alone and don't exactly clean every week. Therefore, this mop did not cut through all of the stains of 50 years and make everything look shiny new. But, it did give me the assurance that at least for that day, the floor was "clean enough to eat off." That is as long as it is used after the surface has been thoroughly vacuumed. It will NOT do a good job if there is a lot of dust on the floor. It also does not work on carpets. But, again, if you use it for what it was designed, hard floors (esp. tile and linoleum) it will work like a champ. Get extra value and use scented water, and it will smell clean as well." β€”B.

    Promising review: "I’ve had this for a few months now and I use it all the time! It heats up so fast and steams the fabric within seconds!

    36. A stainless steel cleaner and polish which 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.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I took it out of the box, directed a few sprays at my fridge, and used the microfiber cloth to wipe with the grain of the stainless steel. My fridge was SHINING! GLOWING! I couldn't believe how good it looked and I took solace in the fact that the bottle size was big, because then I could get some serious use out of this cleaner. The only problem is, I've only had to spray it down once! This cleaner works so well that it some how repels my finger prints and I'm not spraying down my doors every time I touch them." β€”Jsssica Groves

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "The design of this is great. I always hated putting plugs behind furniture and either not using the plug, or the furniture being inches away from the wall. This is the perfect solution. I have a few of these now behind couches and dressers in the house and they are great. This is more expensive than some other flat extension cords but I think the look and quality of these is worth it." β€”Adam C.

    After a day of use, just throw the slippers in your washing machine and give them a good spin.

    Promising review: "This must be the greatest idea since the discovery of fire! Two days in, and my hardwood is shining! And all with just walking around! Of course the quality is pedestrian (pardon), of course it doesn’t look like it was made by Versace, but that’s not the point, is it?" β€”Nigel

    Amazon, TikTok / Via tiktok.com

    Promising review: "This product does exactly what it says it does. I recently got a new car and was looking for something to easily put I up dust. I saw this product from TikTok. I was surprised at how easily it picks up dust and small debris, especially from inside of vents and cup holders. It’s also great for the though screen in my car! The only complaint is the very artificial smell when you use it. It doesn’t last, just when it’s out of the container!" β€”Loren

    41. A pack of generic melamine sponges which reviewers say are a dupe for the beloved Mr. Clean Magic Erasers β€” but for wayyyy less.

    Tom Vellner / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "As good as Mr. Clean Magic Erasers but half the price. They clean so many surfaces better than anything. We use them at the bar and clean our chalkboards, metal sinks and ice wells, beer coolers, FRP backsplash walls, and even graffiti in the bathrooms comes off more easily with these than other cleaning products. I took one home and cleaned my shower faster and more easily than with bottles of shower cleaner. Highly recommended." β€”Stephen Brandau

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had some dining chairs with cream upholstery that needed some cleaning. I have three small boys that make lots of messes and I do not see myself replacing my dinning chairs anytime soon until the kids are much older so I was looking for something to do the trick and clean up these embarrassingly looking chairs. I ordered this and this stuff wiped off 12 plus years of grime, food spills, red soda stains, etc! it removed it all and my cream chairs look brand new as if I just purchased them. What a difference I never thought 12 years of built on junk could be removed! Not only did it remove it, but it removed it fairly easy with very little elbow grease. They look as if I had been scrubbing all day long to get them clean! THIS STUFF." β€”Milky
