    36 Cleaning Products You Can Use For Spring Cleaning (And All Year Long, Too)

    Get ready to whip out The Pink Stuff cleaning paste for basically every single cleaning job you have from here on out.

    1. A bottle of mold and mildew remover spray so powerful, it could lift the filth from an old abandoned house. Or that one suspiciously stained corner of your shower.

    Promising review: "I bought this RMR spray with low expectations, even with the good reviews. I sprayed a small patch in the evening and let it sit overnight. The next morning, the grout where I had sprayed was as white as if it were brand new. I decided to spray the entire wall and part of the roof. The next day everything I sprayed had no visible mold. By the third night, I was pretty much spraying everything left in the shower. This stuff is amazing." —John Werner

    2. A jar of the Pink Stuff, capable of removing set-in rust stains in your kitchen sink, burnt-on food in your oven, and dark scuffs on your wall. It's harder to find something this spring cleaning MVP can't do!

    Promising review: "I added before and after photos of my filthy oven so you all would know this stuff is the real deal and worth it. I like that it didn't have a strong odor and it didn't use much effort at all to clean my oven. You can really see it removing the burnt-on grease after a few circular motions." —DNICEANDFAM

    3. A bottle of Goo Gone foaming spray, which works as a degreaser to finally work away at all that built-up grease that's layered on your oven, stovetop, and countertops. Goodbye, grease splatters from months ago!

    4. A machine-washable EasyWring microfiber spin mop with a hands-free wringer and a splash guard so you never have to actually touch that gross mop water when you're cleaning the floors. AND you *only* have to use water with this thanks to the millions of advanced microfiber strands that pick up dirt and grime. No need to use any harsh chemicals!

    Promising review: "I had had it with my broken basic mop and bucket. I tried to just get a dollar store Swiffer to get us by, but that wasn't cutting it at all. With three boys and a dog who makes his rounds on all the furniture and every exposed corner, I had to do something. After seeing a TikTok where a woman demonstrated this mop to clean her walls, and hearing my boss raving about it, I decided to click the Amazon button. Let me tell you, I HATE cleaning, I HATE mopping, but I LOVE for things to be clean. I was able to mop the entire house TWICE (Because it was that dirty. Please don't judge.) within an hour. A few days later I mopped the entire house again within 10 minutes because they weren't quite as dirty. On another positive note, my boys love the spinner and think it’s a toy! So, every time I get the bucket out my 10-year-old and 4-year-old ask to mop the house because they think it’s fun. MAJOR BONUS!" —Molly

    5. A stainless steel cleaner for getting rid of all those pesky handprints on your oven or fridge. It won't leave behind any streaks, and they'll look so clean, people will think you got brand-new appliances! Don't worry — your secret's safe with us.

    The plant-based, lavender-scented cleaner comes with a microfiber cloth for you to use on your appliances, and reviewers say you only have to use a little bit of the cleaner to clean your entire fridge or oven, which means one bottle will last you a really long time.

    Promising review: "The stainless-steel appliances in our rental were so stained and smudged. Regular cleaners didn't work. The reviews were good and price was right, but what won me over was the plant-based ingredient list and lavender scent. I used the product the day it arrived in the mail. Worked like a charm! Easy-to-use spray, microfiber cloth included. So now my stainless-steel appliances look shiny and my kitchen smells amazing! Highly recommend." —diana

    6. A set of drill brush attachments perfect for super-tough jobs like cleaning caked-on stains and soap scum on your shower door, tiles, and floor. You'll feel so powerful as you blast all that grime away — and you won't have to tire your hand and wrist out with rigorous scrubbing, which means you'll still have energy to finish up your spring cleaning!

    Promising review: "These brushes worked flawlessly. I have a 24 year old home that has not been remodeled yet. The master bath shower tile and fiberglass shower pan were in pretty bad shape. We tried many types of cleaners to remove residual soap and hard water stains with little success. As a last ditch effort, I purchased these brushes. They worked amazingly well. Using Krud Kutter and these brushes removed every bit of the dirt and polished those tiles so that they shine brilliantly like they did when they were new. I am completely satisfied with my purchase of these brushes. They are well made and held up beautifully to the forces I applied while using them." —Tom S4TX

    Get the set of three from Amazon for $14.99 (available in six colors).

    7. A bottle of concentrated floor cleaner with the ability to make your old floors look so shiny and glowing, you might just shed a tear. Because you need to dilute this cleaner with water, you'll get up to 1 GALLON of cleaner from the bottle.

    To use, remove the head, add water, and vinegar, then microwave for about seven minutes. It softens the food particles so you wipe them away easily. You can also add a squeeze of lemon juice to the water/vinegar mixture to freshen up and get rid of the microwave odors that build up.

    Promising review: "Used this for the first time today — it works! I didn’t see a plume of steam as I anticipated, but nonetheless, it broke up all the grease and speckles left in the microwave and afterwards it all wiped away with ease. I did as recommended on the box and added a little vinegar and lemon to the water. I think this made a solid difference and this will be a household staple for our microwave cleaning." —Amazon Customer

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

    9. An oven scrub cleaner for anyone who can't remember the last time you gave the inside of your oven a deep clean. It's time for that burnt cheese that's been stuck to the bottom since last spring to finally go away.

    Promising review: "Last night I was reborn. What is the cause of this renewed zest for life, you might ask? It was the use of the Rubbermaid Reveal Power Scrubber on my shower grout. It elevated a simple baking soda-and-water solution to alchemical proportions. My pink-tiled shower, the one that came with my scummy apartment, the one that never looks clean no matter how many hours of backbreaking labor I put in, now looks bright, clean, and full of promise. An otherwise disgusting and dated purely utilitarian part of my home is now art. TL;DR: This this is absolutely incredible." —Amazon Customer

    11. A pack of washing machine cleaner tablets if it never occurred to you to actually give your washing machine a good deep clean until...right now. Just throw in one of these tablets on its own, run a cycle, and let it do its magic. And then you can clean it every few months to keep that shine going!

    Promising review: "I never knew how tough it would be to clean my high-efficiency washer. It is a never-ending battle. Life is a little easier now that I can toss in a tab and have it do most of the work for me." —Maggie Dennis

    Get the pack of six tablets from Amazon for $10.19.

    12. A rust stain-removing powder for those mysterious orange stains in your shower or tub you thought you'd never be able to get rid of. Make sure to keep this underneath your bathroom sink to blast away any other stains that pop up throughout the year.

    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!" —Toni Huitt

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48+ (available in three sizes).

    13. A shower door cleaner that will demolish those hard water stains so your glass shower doors look so clear and sparkling, you'll have to be careful not to walk right into them.

    Promising review: "This product works beautifully. I tried a lot of products to remove the hard water from my glass shower. I have to admit the first time I used it with a cloth it was not very effective. The second time I used a nonabrasive sponge for glass, it turned out beautiful just like the first day the glass was installed." —
