    1. A tiny cleaning brush to remove all that gunk and grime from grout, in between shower doors, and that weird space behind your sink's faucet.


    Promising review: "I HIGHLY recommend these brushes for grout. If you are on the fence of 'Ehhh do I NEED a grout brush? I could just scrub the floor...' Stop. Get these brushes. They are stiff and cut down the elbow grease time incredibly. Plus you can use them on anything." —Jennifer

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $6.99 (available in two colors).

    2. A powerful spray that will break down stubborn mold and mildew stains almost instantly. Just leave it on for about 15 seconds, then wipe away to reveal what your shower is actually supposed to look like.

    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

    Get a pack of two 32-oz bottles on Amazon for $26.99.

    3. Or this stain remover in a squeezable gel formula that can cling onto awkward vertical and inclined surfaces and fit in tight spaces. Just squeeze, walk away, then give it a quick rinse in the morning to reveal some jaw-dropping results.

    Promising review: "I hardly leave reviews, but I had to leave one for this product. I just received this yesterday, applied it last night and this morning it’s like I have a brand new bathroom. I’m embarrassed to show 'before' and 'after' photos cuz it was so nasty, no matter how hard we scrubbed the mildew wouldn’t go away. I almost cried when I saw my bathroom this mornings. Don’t hesitate, buy this now, you won’t regret it." —Bianca Green

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    4. A drain snake to remove all of the blockage that's causing you to stand in a puddle every time you try to take a relaxing shower. Also, pulling out all of that hair is equal parts disgusting and satisfying.


    Promising review: "I’m so excited to finally have a bathroom sink that drains!! Since moving into my apartment, my bathroom sink and bathtub took forever to drain. I bought multiple de-clogging solutions but they didn’t assist or help much with the problem. When my bathtub was taking over an hour to drain I decided it was time to try these out! After receiving it I went to work, within minutes it pulled out so much hair in both drains. It’s disturbing/disgusting yet weirdly satisfying because now my sinks drain!!" —DebSd

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in two sizes).

    5. A tub of The Pink Stuff — which will take your sink, bathtub, and tiles from grimy to shiny with the help of a little elbow grease. It also works wonders on neglected stoves, so you might want a tub for the kitchen as well.

    Promising review: "Oh my gosh — this stuff is a life-changer! Used it to get my fiberglass shower totally clean. Nothing else would get it done and this stuff brought my shower back to near-new in one use. We’ve since cleaned a weird chalky film off our garage door, removed wall markings and cleaned my storm door. We’ll never be without a jar (or three) of this stuff." —Nancy F.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.39.

    6. A click-on automatic cleaning pack that clings right inside the toilet bowl. It'll clean with every flush and keep things fresh in between more thorough scrubbing sessions.,

    Promising review: "This is a nifty design. Easy to use and press on without being a mess using the one piece design. Beautiful scent. It really does release a pleasant scent each time without being overwhelming." —outlander22

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $3.97.

    7. Or these classic Clorox tabs that go directly into the commode and will leave the toilet disinfected just five minutes after flushing. It also turns the water blue, and that's just plain fun.


    Promising review: "I wasn't impressed at first. This doesn't take the place of cleaning the bowl manually, but it does cut down on how often you need to clean your bowl. I had old stains from the previous tenants inside my bowl, but after about four weeks the stains have disappeared. Love this product!" —Dorine Buse

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $8.67.

    8. An extendable cleaning pad so you can stop hunching over to scrub your tiles or balancing on the edge of your tub just to clean the top of your shower. And yes, the top half of your shower needs cleaning too.


    Promising review: "I really like this! I am 71, with arthritis, and cleaning tubs and showers was difficult. The extendable handle is very sturdy. The scrubbing pad is tough, but did not scratch the vinyl tub or shower. We have iron in our water and if the water softener runs low on salt, the orange color in the water accumulates. I used 401 spray cleaner and the OXO scrubber and the orange stain is gone from the white tub! Perfect!" —Carol Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    9. A "stank eliminator" you can drop in the toilet before you ~go~ to neutralize odors and lightly clean your toilet bowl. It's basically what would happen if Poo-Pourri and a bath bomb had a baby.


    Promising review: "Works better than expected! Use it right before you go, NOT after. It definitely eliminates the odor and actually cleans the toilet bowl at the same time! There’s baking soda and hydrogen peroxide in it! It’s a win/win!" —SoCal Prime Guy

    Get a pack of 40 from Amazon for $13.22.

    10. A shower door cleaner to remove any stubborn hard water spots and have your glass looking so clean you might accidentally walk into it.

    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 non abrasive sponge for glass, it turned out beautiful just like the first day the glass was installed." —EJP

    Get it from Amazon for $11.65.

    11. A washable and reusable alternative to disposable Swiffer Wet Jet pads that aren't just better for the environment, they're also way cuter. Just look at those prints!


    Promising review: "These worked so well on my hardwood and vinyl flooring. Such a great way to save money and reduce waste!" —Emily Bowling

    CitrusDesigns is a Texas-based small business on Etsy specializing in handmade home essentials.

    Get it from CitrusDesings on Etsy for $8.99.

    12. A pack of bleach-free disinfecting wipes so you can give your sink and toilet a quick wipe down in between deep cleanings. They're even in a convenient space-saving pouch so you can take them along with you when you run any essential errands.,

    Promising review: "I love, love these wipes. I love the clean scent they have, I love how sturdy they are and every wipe is moistened. I can do almost an entire kitchen (large kitchen) with one wipe. These are a must have and I love the packaging, they are more convenient than the standard 'tub' of wipes." —Nicolletta

    Get a three-pack of 75-count pouches on Amazon for $11.97+ (available in two scents).

    13. A six-pack of plant-based, all-pupose cleaners in fragrances so irresistible they might just make you look forward to cleaning. But no promises.

    Good Vibes

    Promising review: "I love that I get to try them all out! And it's so convenient that the two ounces are already measured out, so I can just pour it all in with warm water. So far Sagilmint has been my favorite! I can't wait to try the rest!" —Rebecca Hui

    Good Vibes is a Black woman-owned business based in Pennsylvania.

    Get it from Good Vibes for $15 (comes with two six-oz bottles of cleaner).

    14. An ergonomic squeegee so you can dry off your shower walls after each use or give your mirrors a good streak-free shine.

    Promising review: "Have you ever used a squeegee, even a nice one, and been frustrated when seeing little streaks of water on the glass afterwards? I have, and I have been confused and frustrated about why that should be. Usually I can, by adjusting pressure and angle, avoid those streaks, but, still....With this squeegee, those streaks almost never happen. Why? I am not sure, except that it seems to use black rubber instead of silicone. Regardless of the reason for the difference, I'm celebrating a seemingly simple thing, done well." —angelsix

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in three sizes and four colors).

    15. A univeral descaler that will remove limescale and calcium buildup from your shower head and restore it back to its former shiny self.

    Promising review: "This product removed calcification on the granite bathroom countertop and on the faucet base. I have been unsuccessfully trying to remove this for four years after buying my home ... I tried scraping gently with a scraper, multiple chemicals including CLR. This stuff removed it in seconds." —Julie

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in two sizes, a two-pack, and a three-pack).

    16. A bottle of Bar Keepers Friend soft cleanser that can remove tarnish, soap scum, rust and hard water deposits with ease. The original formula comes in a powder, but this version is premixed and ready to use!

    Read our review of the Bar Keepers Friend soft cleanser.

    Promising review: "Bar Keepers Friend should really be called 'Homeowner's Magician'! I purchased this cleanser in an attempt to revive our stainless steel knife set, which is a great moderately-priced set that has seen better days, and I'm extremely happy that I did. The cleanser not only took away the rust spots with minimal difficulty, but it returned them to their original luster! After cleaning our knives, I gave it a shot on our porcelain sink, which I typically have to douse in bleach cleaner to remove the stains from, causing the entire kitchen to be filled with noxious fumes... and it worked beautifully! The stains came clean, and it made the sink look pretty enough to eat off of." —Kat Ferrari

    Get it from Amazon for $14.90 (available in two sizes or a pack of two).

    17. A spray gel for when you want to get rid of rust stains but don't feel like scrubbing. Simply spray it on, wait a few minutes for the rust to dissolve and then lightly wipe it away.

    Promising review: "We bought a house and there was iron stains in the showers, sinks and toilets. I tried bleach and other types of cleaners at different times to try and remove the stains. Nothing worked and I was so disappointed as I usually use bleach on tough stains and it removes them with no problems.....but it failed. I saw this on amazon and was skeptical if it would work. To my surprise it worked and fast. Just a few min after spraying it on it melted the rust stain away." —S. Peterson

    Get it from Amazon for $4.97.

    18. A disposable cleaning wand to make scrubbing the toilet less of a chore. The kit comes with 16 refill heads to get you started, so you can immediately say goodbye to that dirty toilet wand in your bathroom!

    Promising review: "So, we have a toilet that belongs to the cats. We don't use it, we don't look at it, we like to pretend it does not exist. Even with semi-regular flushing, cat waste is pretty nasty stuff and built up quickly in the bowl. One of these wands cleaned it up in a single session! Before-and-after pic attached (above)." —Whitney

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    19. A 20-pack of cleaning erasers that are more affordable than name brands but, if you catch my drift. These little sponges use just water to lift away tough stains — and the results are downright therapeutic.

    Promising review: "These babies have transformed and reformed my slobby life. My dog sitter thought I got a new sink and fridge. I have never had more fun cleaning in my life — wait, I have never had any fun cleaning. But these magical creatures make it so freaking satisfying. No toxic stuff. No fumes. Just heavenly cleanliness." —Jimmy Jim Ereeno

    Get a pack of 20 from Amazon for $9.95.

    20. A nonabrasive but super scrubby scouring cream to show all the gunk in your sink and the soap scum in your tub who's boss. You can even use it for pretreating clothing stains, hand-washing dishes, and as a nontoxic oven cleanser — so you'll basically be carrying it from room to room.

    Promising review: "This scrub smells INCREDIBLE. It makes cleaning so much more fun! And it makes my sink look super shiny after I clean it!" —Diane Bak

    Mrsjonessoapbox is a woman-owned small business based in Florida specializing in cleaning products.

    Get it from Mrsjonessoapbox on Etsy for $9.99.

    21. A simple but effective microfiber mop and bucket with a built-in wringer, because sometimes a good old-school mopping can go a long way.

    I've been using this regularly for the last six months and I never thought I'd be so impressed by something so seemingly boring. The foot-operated wringer is a life-saver for a lazy cleaner like me, and the microfiber mop dries quickly and stays fresh in between uses.

    Get it from Amazon for $38.99.

    22. A two-in-one ultra-slim brush and scraper that's perfect for getting dust out of your bathroom's vent and other little crevices your vacuum can't reach.


    Promising review: "Perfect little brush to get in the hard to clean areas. Used it in the tracks of an old pet door stuffed with dog hair and dander. Shocked at how much gunk came out with this brush. I like how the bristles are longer and can really reach into the nooks and crannies." —Island Girl

    Get it from Amazon for $5.97+ (available in two colors).

    23. A set of brushes to turn your power drill into the ultimate scrubber you never knew you needed. The nylon bristles won't leave behind any scratches, so you can scrub away without worrying about ruining your tub.,

    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 a set of three from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in six colors).

    24. A bathroom cleaner made with natural ingredients to leave your tiles shining and tub as sparkly as the day you moved in. Plus, it's free from fumes and synthetic dyes, so you won't have to worry about any mid-chore headaches.

    Promising review: "I have an old shower/bathtub. I tried name brand shower cleaners and bleach to try and clean the soap scum off the tiles and tub. I had no luck and I would cough and get sick because of how strong the smell was. I thought I would try this to save my lungs. I sprayed my entire shower and left it for about 15 minutes. Came back and rinsed off the walls and they were shiny! I've never had such a clean shower. The smell is amazing and subtle. All I smell is tea tree and it didn't affect me at all. The price is also a good deal since the bottle is pretty large." —Amber Erwin

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $12.99 (available in two sizes).

    25. An extendable spinning scrub brush that can literally reach every corner of your home, so you now have no excuse for not cleaning every inch of your shower.,

    Promising review: "I am SO happy with this purchase and will be buying a second as a gift for my mom. I tried hand scrubbing, using Mr. Clean magic erasers, paste concoctions, but could never find anything to get the hard water and grime from my shower pan until I purchased this electric cleaning brush. It's amazing! You don't have to press down on the scrub brush at all, just let it do its work and you will be so pleased with the results. My only regret is that I didn't know about this years ago! I hesitated at first because of the price but trust me, it's worth it. Happy cleaning!" —Tracy Malloy

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99 (available in two colors).

    26. A small but impressive power scrubber to break down all the caked-on grime in your shower so you can turn your bathroom into the clean, shiny sanctuary you truly deserve.

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    "I'm obsessed! This thing works small miracles: I cleaned about half of my bathroom's grout to its original sparkling-clean cream color in 40 minutes, and it took honestly no effort at all. And — as if easy, sparkling grout wasn't enough! — it busted through some serious soap-scum buildup in my bathtub (thanks, fancy soap and slow-draining tub) in less than a minute.

    Honestly, when I first tried the scrubber out, I didn't see too many uses for it other than for grout. But after owning it for a while, I've realized that while I don't need it every single week, it's priceless for the occasions I encounter tough gunk that I'd otherwise only conquer with excessive patience and elbow grease." —Natalie Brown

    Get it from Amazon for $19.90.

    27. An innovative set of cleaning tablets that will give an eco-friendly transformation to your usual cleaning supplies. Simply pop a tablet into one of the included refillable glass bottles, add some water, and then you'll have a bottle filled with gentle household cleaner.

    Rachel Dunkel / BuzzFeed

    "The kit comes with three reusable cleaning bottles, one reusable foaming hand soap bottle and four tablets — one each for multi-surface, glass and mirror, bathroom, and foaming hand soap solutions. Just fill each bottle with water and drop in the corresponding tablet. It's as simple as that! The cleaner is made with no triclosan, parabens, phosphates, ammonia, or VOCs.

    Listen, maybe it's just a Me Problem, but I always get kind of confused about what cleaning products to use where — they're usually dangerous chemicals and I don't want to mess up! With Blueland, it's honestly a relief to have the bottles labeled, telling me exactly where to use each product. And it's doubly a relief to know that they're all ~clean~ cleaning products regardless." —Rachel Dunkel

    Get it from Blueland for $39.

    28. A handmade, natural lavender room freshener that actually deodorizes instead of masking scents with strong chemicals. You can also use it to refresh your linens — and the idea of curling up in lavender scented sheets sounds heavenly right about now.

    Promising review: "Love it! The glass bottle is really nice and the spray nozzle gives such a nice full spritz of freshness. Smells pure and soothing." —Anonymous
