    6. A jetted tub cleaner so you're not bathing in the remnants of whatever products the previous homeowner used. (The absolute horror.)

    Cleaning Studio / Etsy

    Cleaning Studio is a Fairfield, Connecticut–based all-natural cleaning shop from Claudia and Angelo Zimmermann. Their oven cleaner comes with a professional-grade metallic scrubber you can use to scrub your appliance before wiping it down with a microfiber cloth. 

    Promising review: "Like many I moved into a house with a used oven. Keeping the typical grease and cooking messes at bay over the years has been a challenge, especially because of its placement in the kitchen (up against a wall in a corner). I tried vinegar and baking soda, Dawn dish soap, then fume-free Easy-Off, which, although effective, is more of a hassle to apply and remove (and wasteful, since I have to cover the heating elements with aluminum foil). Saw this product online and liked the nonchemical ingredients, and decided based on the reviews that it was worth a try. It's not cheap, but this is the only thing that got almost all the residue off my oven surfaces. Nice smell and didn't leave any scratches or marks. I highly recommend rinsing thoroughly and drying with a microfiber cloth for best results." —Irish Eyes

    Get it from Cleaning Studio on Etsy for $17.99+ (available in a plastic or glass container). 

    21. A ChomChom roller to put your regular ol' lint roller to shame. Forget ripping off sheets till you run out — this collects everything in a neat little compartment you simply empty out.

    22. A pack of bottle-cleaning tablets that take your go-to water bottle from nasty to gleaming in just minutes. IDK who needs to hear this, but "rinsing" it with water every day isn't enough. 😔

    23. A fur-eliminating broom capable of squeegeeing enough fur from your carpet that if magically animated, it would transform into one of Martha Stewart's Chow Chows.

    24. A TubShroom so you don't have to worry about a wig's worth of hair accumulating in your drain every week.

    25. Or, if you didn't heed my advice and get the above, a drain snake that'll help you wrestle a small animal from your bathtub.

    26. The Blueland Clean Suite, which comes with everything you need to give your collection an eco-friendly, cost-effective overhaul. So many pretty colors, too 😍

    The kit which comes with seven reusable containers and cleaning solutions

    27. Or, if dishes are your main area of concern, a Clean Plate Club Starter Kit from Fillaree.

    The 16-ounce pump bottle of dish soap and 64-ounce refill jug

    28. A self-cleaning Litter-Robot that not only saves you from scooping poop, but gives you an excuse to send Star Wars–themed Snapchats of your cat.

    29. A Little Green carpet cleaner capable of sucking up a mess of any caliber. Be warned, though: Reviewers say once you start, you won't stop.

    30. An Angry Mama microwave cleaner that, once filled with water and a dash of vinegar, will steam clean the grimiest of appliances. Hot Pocket grease, butter splatters, and burnt popcorn smells are no match for her.

    31. A Clorox toilet wand with disposable scrubbing pads you can plop into the trash the second you're done cleaning. No more poo particles just sitting around on your toilet brush. 🙅‍♀️

    32. A sleek air purifier that doesn't just suck up whatever pollutants are swirling around in your home — it DESTROYS them on a molecular level. (Man I love science. 😌)

    33. A bottle of Goo Gone gel spray because nobody — and I mean nobody — wants to deal with the residue left behind by stickers and other lousy adhesives. Plus, it comes with a little scraping tool so you won't chip a nail or snap a debit card in half while trying to finish the job.
