    38 Products For People Whose House Can Never Be Clean Enough

    Go where no man has gone before — deep into your dryer ducts.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A pack of dishwasher tablets because — womp, womp — the appliance that cleans your dishes needs some cleaning of its own.

    amazon.com

    Slip a single tablet in your detergent tray (or in the bottom of the dishwasher if it won't fit in there) and set it to a regular wash cycle. After it's finished, open it up to find limescale, hard water stains, and other mineral buildup completely wiped out.

    Promising review: "I had tried lots of white vinegar for two cycles in my 20-year-old dishwasher for the cloudy and powdery dinginess it had started showing and it only helped about 30%. We have very hard water. This zapped the buildup and glass is clear again and colored plastics no longer have the powder-like coating. So glad I took a chance on this!" —J. Holden

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in packs of six or 12).

    2. A tub of The Pink Stuff which can clean anything you throw at it — tires, pots and pans, stove tops, walls, showers, you name it!

    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." —ap808

    Get it from Amazon for $10.45.

    3. An automatic Glade air freshener so you can save guests (and yourself) the embarrassment of having to manually Febreze the bathroom before you exit.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Depending on how often your loo could use a refresh, you can set the unit to go off every 9, 18, or 36 minutes.

    Promising review: "I was looking for a way to make the house smell nice — all the time — without candles which can be a fire hazard. I tried the plugins but I found the smell didn't last long. This item fit the bill. I like the tropical scent. I have one of these in the bathroom and one in the living room. The batteries last a long time — months. You can set the sprayer to spray with different frequencies. I use every 30ish minutes usually but you can adjust that. The sprayer dispenser is attractive enough to place out on a table. I am happy with this purchase." —winnie

    Get it from Amazon for $15+ (available in five scents).

    4. A pack of pH-neutral stainless steel wipes which eliminate fingerprints (or doggie nose prints), grease, and streaks from your appliances. Just 🎶 wipe, wipe, wipe it down, wipe 🎶

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought these last month to see if I would like them, they are my 32,393,657,697,047,241st product I have purchased for stainless steel in my kitchen. Hahahahaa not really, but I know I have bought over 100 products and none ever do what they say they will. ENTER WEIMAN STAINLESS STEEL CLEANER WIPES! This product is EVERYTHING and more. I have no streaks, no hand prints, just gorgeous shiny and clean stainless steel. You have made my life so much easier with these wipes. I am so thankful I found this product. Just wipe on and shine off with cotton cloth. Easy peasy and lasts for the whole week in my heavily used kitchen because I cook every single day. So thankful. You will love these I promise you. This is not a gimmick product, it's the REAL DEAL! Buy them and you will be as happy as me and your kitchen will look stunning." —jaguar

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

    amazon.com

    Each bottle gets you four cleanings. Just dump it in, fill your tub, run the jets and it'll flush out soap scum, mold, and whatever other gunk your whirlpool is harboring.

    Promising review: "Oh. My. Gosh. Our tub came with the house. I’ve just never felt like it was clean. Bleach, dishwashing detergent, vinegar. Tried it all and it looked clean, but then the next time you’d start it up, little bits of gunk. So, we almost never used it. I decided to hunt down a cleaner specifically for this. So, bought this after the reviews. Keep in mind, I deep cleaned this about six months ago, including bleaching it and running the jets. Hadn’t used it since. And, after the first run... ICK!!!! It was so nasty!!!! Took two runs, with me cleaning out the tub after draining it each time, for the water to be crystal clear and absolutely clean. I took a bath feeling like it was truly clean and what a great bath it was. This stuff is AMAZING!!!!" —J. Burnett

    7. A touchless vacuum you can sweep debris right into. No more song and dance with your dust pan trying to sweep up every last speck of dust.

    Target

    Promising review: "Received as a wedding gift and LOVE this thing! If the marriage doesn't work out, I'm keeping this item for sure. Had no idea I even needed this until it was plugged in and started using it. Would definitely recommend." —Shaun

    Get it from Target for $99 (available in two colors).

    8. A pouch of foaming garbage disposal cleaner to eliminate the special stank that can only be produced after years of shredding up meat, produce, and whatever that mystery blob was that came out of your long-lost Tupperware.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Each pouch of lemon-scented formula gets you four uses. Dump a pack into your disposal (while off at first!), run the water just a bit, and then start it and watch as the blue foam gets to work eliminating odors and loosening up nasties that have been caught down there for who knows how long.

    Promising review: "These are amazing! I was skeptical at first but I followed the directions (which are super easy) and was grossed out and satisfied at the same time to see the gunk that was removed. You put the entire packet down your disposal (I read that twice too) and magic happens in under two minutes! That is what I call powerful and successful cleaning! The scent is super clean and light with a hint of lemon. These will definitely be a cleaning staple for me." —KPITT

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $10.49.

    9. A rosemary and citrus glass cleaner 'cause turns out taking a baby wipe to your mirror only made things worse. Begone, streaks!

    10. An ooey gooey dust remover you can use on keyboards, air conditioners, car vents and anywhere else crumbs accumulate.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    The lemon-scented biodegradable gel will pick up dirt and dust but won't stick to your fingers. It's basically adult Silly Putty.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical at first; afraid my keyboard would be all gummed up with yellow slime! The opposite happened, though, and it cleaned it as good as new. Got all those dog hairs between the keys! No smell lingering on keyboard or my hands. No sign I even used it except a clean keyboard. Kind of fun to play with. Squeeze it between your fingers! LOL. My next task for it will be those dust return air vents on our heating system and use it on my dusty window blinds. This stuff works and I highly recommend!" —ZZZZZZ

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    11. A Swiffer WetJet ready to tackle all hardwood floors underfoot. Forget wringing out mops and getting down on hands and knees to clean — this guy's got everything covered.

    Amazon

    What's included: WetJet wood device, 10 cleaning cloths, and WetJet Wood Quickdry Solution.

    Promising review: "I have almost every Swiffer product made. I love this!!!! I will never go back to using a regular mop. I am not in the best of shape and have health problems, so this thing is a life saver when it comes to keeping my floors clean." —Tammy & Cory

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99.

    12. A lil' gap-cleaning brush you can use to dig out the crud (dust, pollen, food crumbs) that accumulates around your windowsills and door tracks.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is an amazing set of brushes. Don't be fooled by the low cost. The brushes are soft and long enough to get into tight spots but firm enough to hold up. They work amazing in those hard-to-clean aluminum window runners and sliding doors. I've used them to clean in enclosed fan blades, refrigerator vents, etc. They wash easily and with a bit of TLC they hold their shape. Always nice to find something so simple and inexpensive that works so well." —CNJ

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $4.99.

    13. A portable paw washer because you'll be damned if your dog tracks muddy prints all over your freshly Swiffered home!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    The nifty gadget comes in multiple sizes that work for pups as small as a miniature dachshund and as large as a golden retriever.

    Promising review: "I have four dogs in NYC. I have to wash their feet after every walk because the streets are so filthy. It would take me about 10 to 15 minutes to clean their paws with a spray bottle and towel. Now, it takes about five minutes. And the towel doesn’t end up filthy. The dirt gets caught in the cup. Plus the dogs seem to like it. The silicone bristles must feel good. A huge thumbs up!" —Sandra

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in three sizes and six colors).

    14. An adjustable, three-blade blind duster capable of cleaning the grimiest blinds — we're talking top and bottom — in one fell swoop. This way, you won't be engulfed by a cloud of dust every time you crack them open.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "OK I'll be honest, I ordered this because of the price. After reviewing several other options and having been disappointed with previous dusters I've had, I figured why spend more money on something that isn't going to work? So I ordered the least expensive option but WOW does this little tool rock!!!! It's very easy to use and clean. It does a fantastic job of cleaning and dusting the blinds and gets ALL of the crud off of them. My blinds haven't been this clean since the day they were first installed. VERY happy with purchase." —Amazon Shopper

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in two colors).

    15. A pack of pre-moistened screen cleaning cloths so you can give your TV a little TLC before you sit down and watch some TLC.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was skeptical at first because I've tried just about everything to clean my monitors and TV screens and EVERYTHING left streaks. Well, the buck stops here. These wipes are AMAZING! As advertised, they are completely streak free. I don't know how they came up with right formula, but they got it! A+++++++++++++++++++++" —Howard C.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.49+ (available in packs of 10, 24, or 100).

    16. An automatic lavender-scented toilet bowl cleaner that not only deodorizes, but prevents nasty rings and stains for up to two weeks.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "So I decided to try this product after reading the reviews, some great and some not so great. I also talked to a friend who loves them! So, I figured for less than $4 I didn’t have much too lose and let me tell you these things smell AMAZING!!! Super easy to apply and the scent isn’t too strong but you can smell it when you go potty! If you pay attention to the water in the toilet bowl you can see that it’s actually working as well! Not sure how long each one will last but for the price, you can just buy more!! I’ve also heard these are way better than the ones that hang onto the side of the toilet!" —Kay Kay

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $3.97.

    17. A drill brush attachment kit so you can blast away dirt and grime with little elbow grease but lots of power-tool-enabled muscle.

    amazon.com

    Each kit comes with three nylon brush attachments which, once attached to a cordless drill, can get to work on your dirtiest sinks, showers, baseboards, and more.

    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." —Terry

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in six colors).

    18. A bottle of powdered Bar Keepers Friend that'll cut through years of dirt, hard water stains, and rust with such ease, reviewers say the only explanation is witchcraft.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    The hardworking formula is safe for use on surfaces in your bathroom and kitchen — 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." —Nicci Stephenson

    Get it from Amazon for $7.90+ (available in one, two, or three packs).

    19. A Chom Chom 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.

    Chelsea Stuart / BuzzFeed, amazon.com

    I have two cats who shed like it's their full-time job and let me tell you — this thing is amazing. I used to vacuum my bed/rug/their favorite chair multiple times a week and follow that up with a traditional lint roller that I'd have to use 10 to 15 sheets in one go. With this nifty tool, I give whatever I'm cleaning a few good rolls and then empty out enough fur to felt them few cat toys (I don't *actually* do that, but I could if I wanted to).

    Promising review: "I've had it in my possession for like two hours and I've cleaned everything. The couch, the blinds, the cat tree pad, the chair, I'm obsessed. I feel like this thing should win an award for being so awesome. I feel like it should be in raffle baskets and giveaways and silent auctions for every event that highlights 'things cat people need.' It's better than those sticky rollers, it's better than the one-directional velvet wand thing that I always use the wrong way and make a mess. It's the best. I don't have any 'before' pictures because as soon as I started rolling stuff I went crazy." —Meowser

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    20. 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 everyday isn't enough. 😔

    A reviewer's before, during, and after shots that show a bottle dirty and now clean
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. A bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. 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." —Amazon Customer

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $8.

    21. 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.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing just plain works. We got a mature golden retriever last year and were told he didn't shed. Then in the spring he started shedding badly. We were tired of hair everywhere and somehow I realized that dragging my shoe across the carpet balled the hair up. I found this product on a whim one day and knew it had to be better than my shoe! I ordered it and it was tough at first. The bristles pulled the hair up but then caught the tufts and spread them around. I found that using short quick strokes with the rake turned upside down got the best results. The backside is more like a squeegee and helps pull the hair up in long rolls and keeps the hair in one big pile." —Nick V.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98+ (available in six configurations).

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

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "No seriously — this is amazing. I have long hair and recently had a baby. It's a wonder I still have any hair based on the clumps I see falling out on a regular basis. This means the poor tub drain is getting clogged every time we turn around, and we're spending ridiculous amounts of time with that spiky stick thing you shove down there and then pull out over and over. I figured if this even worked to catch half of my hair then it would be worth its salt. Holy moly. When they say it catches every hair they aren't kidding. We clean it off about twice A WEEK! And when they say it's easy to clean, they are right again. A swipe with toilet paper and the hair blob comes right off to be flushed down the toilet. I've already told so many people about this product because I love it so much. Fantastic!!!" —sasamo

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in five colors and packs of one or two).

    23. 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.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    The flexible18-inch tool has more than a thousand 5-star ratings from reviewers who say the rotating handle is particularly helpful. Plus it's more effective and less expensive than a bottle of Drano!

    Promising review: "....it immediately latched onto the hair clogging my drain like some kind of alien extraterrestrial creature. I was disgusted and amused at the same time. I tried it on my other drains and it worked well. I ordered the one with the special handle, the handle didn't make much of a difference. I recommend the one without the handle since it's cheaper and probably works just as well. This thing is incredible for removing hair in your drain." —Michael

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    24. 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
    Blueland

    What's included: One foaming hand soap bottle and tablet, three Tritan bottles and three tablets (multi-surface, glass + mirror, bathroom), one silicone shaker and 16-ounce powder dish soap, one steel tablet tin and 40 dishwasher tablets, one steel tablet tin and 40 laundry tablets.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical about spending this much for a cleaning set, but I'm glad I did. All the products are sustainable, and the bottles/canisters are really quality. As a note: the bottles are heavy-duty plastic and not glass. I love the color coding for each of the bottles. I have found all products to perform as well or better than their less sustainable counterparts. Already gifted another set to a friend!" —Emily M.

    Get it from Blueland for $83.

    25. 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 32-ounce refill jug

More good news: Every refill ships free!

    Get the two-piece kit from Fillaree for $32.

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

    Litter-Robot

    The Wi-Fi-enabled box self cleans, reduces litter usage up to 50%, manages odors with a carbon-filtered waste drawer, and settings can be controlled via an app on your smartphone. You can lock the buttons on the actual box so your cat doesn't mess with them; you can set a 3-, 7-, or 15-minute delay before the unit cycles (after your cat has used the box); and it'll notify you when the waste drawer needs to be manually emptied. Otherwise, just set it and forget it.

    Promising review: "Hands-down best money I’ve ever spent. Less kitty litter used, no more scooping, happy kitty because her litter is always clean, no more doggie curiosity. Best invention for cat parents. My only caveat was I bought compostable trash bags to use when my original supply of Kitty Robot liners ran out. My 'hack' is that I put the entire bin inside a compostable trash bag and slide the edges of the bag under the clips near the air vent. Then, slide whole bin back in place carefully. Once it’s time to empty it, I just pull the bag and toss. Voila!" —Julieana T.

    Get it from Litter-Robot for $499 (available in two colors).

    27. 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.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This has made my list of Top 5 Amazon purchases EVER. I have two Australian shepherds and make extra money by dog sitting through Rover. As you can imagine, my couch takes a lot of damage from the constant flow of pups. I had been scrubbing the spots individually as they happened with a spot treatment, but I was left with discolored and stained cushions. I also didn’t feel like the scrubbing was truly getting the couch CLEAN. These cushions have been vomited on, puked on, stepped on with muddy paws, and licked until damp (I know; disgusting). Well, I am amazed with the Bissell Little Green! I have no doubt that this purchase will be well worth the reasonable price for the use I’ll get out of it as a dog sitter. I had planned to use it as a spot cleaner (which I will), but after watched the dirty water come off of the 'clean' areas of the cushion? I’m considering just cleaning the whole couch!" —Ivy

    Get it from Amazon for $109.99+ (available in three configurations).

    28. 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.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My daughter cooked ramen noodles for three minutes without any water. Needless to say it was burnt and almost caught fire. I have scrubbed the microwave and couldn’t get the horrible smell out to the point it was giving me a headache. After several days I decided to ordered this before buying a new microwave. Got it today and used it and shocked it actually pulled most of the odor out that’s trapped in the upper vent. This $10 item saved me $200 to $400." —Angela D.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in different sizes and packs of one or two).

    29. 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. 🙅‍♀️

    amazon.com

    What's included: One toilet wand, one storage caddy, six original disposable refills, and 10 Rainforest Rush-scented refills.

    Promising review: "I love this little handy tool! I have one in each bathroom. I love that you use the cleaning sponge, then toss in away. Simple and no gross toilet brush sitting around 😝" —Lisa Johnston

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    30. 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 😌)

    A reviewer's photo of the white mini purifier which works in rooms up to 250 square feet
    amazon.com

    The Air Mini+ uses a patented PECO filter which — when activated by light — first traps large particles and then destroys them before dispersing purified air. If you're concerned about VOCs, bacteria, mold, viruses, or allergens, this lil' guy is ready to jump into action.

    Promising review: "We love this purifier so far! Breathing clean air is so important — now more than ever. I’m feeling much more confident about the air in our home since we’ve started using the Molekule Air Mini+ in our living room where we spend most of our time together as a family. I love that instead of just trapping the pollutants, it actually destroys them. It was so easy to set up, runs quietly, and looks beautiful in our home. I’m very happy with this purifier, it’s a must-have for those with allergies and pets!" —Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $499.

    31. A Dawn Powerwash starter kit that will help cut through grease and caked on messes. If your partner/roommate/dishwashing pal has a tendency to let things "soak" overnight, gift them a bottle of the good stuff.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.40.

    32. 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.

    Promising review: "This is as magical as unicorns!!! Buy NOW! I use it everywhere... walls, baseboards, mirrors, window panes, cupboards, floors, lamps, glass, faucets... everything looks brand new. Just got red hair dye that had been there for over a year off the wall in a minute. Made shower glass look brand-new after five years of hard water stains. This is the cleaning magic wand you’ve always wanted." —Michela

    34. An eco-friendly carpet and upholstery deodorizer to hide the fact that you've dumped lo mein on your rug not once, not twice, but thrice.

    A reviewer's photo of the powder deodorizer spread over their carpet
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Great for dog odors on fabric! We sprinkled it on the couch cushions and put them in trash bags. We shook the bags and let sit for an hour or so. We used the hose of our vacuum and sucked out the air (like you're vacuum sealing). The cushions plumped right up and smelled gorgeous for several weeks. Our very allergic daughter had no problems sitting on the sofa. We also sprinkled on carpets for great deodorizing. Fine powder that goes a long way. Adding this to our regular Amazon purchases!" —Pam

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in packs of one or two).

    35. A set of scratch-free, odor-resistant Scrub Daddy sponges that — thanks to their ingenious design and indisputable results — quickly became a Shark Tank success story. The sponge's proprietary foam is firm when used with cold water, and soft when used with warm water.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    The pack comes with three Scrub Daddies — each in a different color — so you never have to worry about using the bathroom sponge on dishes. 😱

    Promising review: "I used to 'save' these little gems for 'special projects' (what projects, I don't know because I ended up not ever using them!). Then one day I decided 'What the heck, just use one in the sink for dishes, you can always buy more.' Lo and behold, I LOVE them! They remove food off of dishes more easily than a sponge and I just throw them in the top rack of the dishwasher and they come out spotless! They never smell and always rinse out nicely in between washings. These little gems even take off hard water build up from my shower doors! (I also use regular cleaners with them to do the trick.). I love these so much I bought a bunch and used them as stocking stuffers last Xmas! Everyone loves them!" —DivaGranny

    36. A vacuum attachment you can use to suck lint out of your dryer because 1. Things are taking wayyyyy too long to dry and 2. This Is Us has given you a *major* fear of house fires. (I know that was from a different appliance but it stands.)

    Promising review: "My upright dryer is 5 years old and I could see some lint on the walls where my lint tray goes so I thought it would be a good idea to clean it. Boy was I surprised to see how much stuff came out! I am so glad I bought this! Easy to use and gave me peace of mind preventing a fire 🔥" —charli

    37. A grout pen that deposits long-lasting, nontoxic ink that'll erase years of stains. If you've scrubbed, scrubbed, and scrubbed some more — all without result — then submit to the stains and just get this.

    Promising review: "Holy cow! I never thought my stained grout would look so good! These pens are so amazing. After a little priming, they go forever! They cover very well and are super easy to use and covers the darkest of stains! I am buying four more to cover the rest of the house. The tip does not get into the very end of a line due to the border but I prime it a bit for excess paint and push it in with my finger. Also, this is great for those deep small holes or grooves that are in the tile that leave dirt spots that are almost impossible to get out. Just prime it over the hole and rub it in with your finer and wipe off the rest. I have very light beige tile and the beige color pens blend perfectly. I would NOT recommend white unless you have very while tile. This beige will blend well with white as well. Cannot beat it for the price and the amazing job this pen does. One pen will cover about a 3 x 20-foot area no problem." —NatJH

    38. And pet stain remover to hide the fact that Sparky isn't the perfect angel you make him out to be on Instagram. But that's okay buddy, we all make mistakes.

    Promising review: "This stuff is so great!! I’ve tried so many brands of enzymatic cleaners and they all have a strong chemical smell. This smells exactly like the orange cream shakes at Arby’s!! It does an excellent job or erasing odors and seems to be working to deter puppy from peeing in that spot again. Leaves a great long-lasting scent and odors are long gone by the time the pleasant scent fades the next day. It’s also a great stain remover. I’ve only used it on puppy messes but it makes quick work of them. Love this stuff so much!!" —Geek Girl
