    This won't clean your grout but it'll make it look brand new.

    Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised by how far these went. I did the entire floor of my large master bathroom plus a little of the shower with one pen. It is pretty forgiving and you have quite a bit of working time before it dries completely. This was not a quick task, but it went faster than I thought it would. I was worried the white would look too bright, but it just makes everything look so much cleaner. Very happy with this product!" —Jenelle

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in two sizes).

    2. A tub of The Pink Stuff — which will completely revitalize your sink, bathtub, and tiles with the help of a little elbow grease. It also works wonders on neglected stoves, so you might want a jar for the kitchen as well.

    amazon.com

    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 $7.46.

    3. A grout-cleaning kit to loosen up all the dirt in between your tiles. Trust me, a sparkly clean floor can go a long way in revitalizing your bathroom.

    amazon.com

    The kit comes with two bottles of Grout-Eez and a scrubber you can attach to a standard mop or broom pole.

    Promising review: "This is an excellent product. I have tried several grout cleaners over the past 15 years since the majority of our flooring has been ceramic tile. This product surpassed all of them. In fact, nothing has ever worked this quickly. The three best features: 1) The instructions on both the bottle and with the product were clear, and I followed them to a tee, 2) the perfect brush came with it, and it fit perfectly into my grout lines and was easy to attach to an existing handle, and 3) how easily the soil was removed from the grout. I would recommend using this around one tile first, definitely waiting the 10 minutes, and then wiggling the brush in the grout lines. The soil comes up quickly." —Karen

    Get a set from Amazon for $39.95.

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

    Promising review: "Economically priced, speedy delivery, ridiculously simple to use, and very very effective. Lo and behold, this little tool made short work of the effort, and the results were...well I won't describe the deeply caked mass this little tool unearthed out of concern that you might be eating while you shop online. All I will say is that this was money well spent, and I highly recommend it for your drain clog removal needs." —Jon Jones

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in two sizes).

    5. Or a pair of DrainWigs that hang out in your shower's drain to catch stray hairs and stop you from having to buy yet another bottle of Drano. It's meant to be disposed of after four months, so you'll never even have to touch any of the hair it collects!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I didn't even think about my shower drain being such a problem with hair. We have a relatively new shower and the drain was starting to be slow, but not really a problem because the pipe has a long drop. I was watching Shark Tank and thought maybe I need to check this out. Wow, there was a lot of hair to clean! Three long-haired girls in the house! I started using this and it pulled all sorts of hair out. We change it about once a month. Easy to pull out and no breaks or rust. I keep buying!" —Kindle Customer

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $11.55.

    6. OR! an over-the-drain option you simply position down on your shower floor and let it collect all your loose strands in a tidy pile that's super easy to clean up.

    Promising review: "I've been very impressed! It's tall enough to fit easily over my pop-up drain and (even without suction cups) the weighted top keeps it in place. I have medium-length hair and seem to shed almost as much as my cat, but the drain protector catches it all and the hair is easily removed and tossed away. Best of all, the silicone doesn't hold onto mildew or mold. I have been able to spray and wipe away any grime with very little effort. It looks like this drain protector will last a very long time. This has been a very worthy purchase!"—Suneimi

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    7. A glass cleaner that'll remove any stubborn hard-water spots and have your shower doors looking so clean you might accidentally walk into them.

    amazon.com

    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." —EJP

    Get it from Amazon for $16.10.

    8. Or a handmade glass cleaner made with a thick paste-like formula to break down years and years of hard water stains.

    Promising review: "Used this on a glass shower door that had years of well water stains and it worked perfectly!" —Cheryl B.

    GlassGuard is a small Etsy shop based in Sydney, Australia.

    Get it from GlassGuard on Etsy for $15.16+ (available in three sizes).

    9. A tile scrubber so you can clean the most overlooked part of your bathroom — your shower walls. You can attach this scrubber to a broom handle or simply use your hands if you're in the mood to put in a little extra elbow grease.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is just what you need to clean your grout lines in the quickest way possible! I don't know what we were thinking when we decided to put subway tile in our shower, but we did, and cleaning the grout lines can be a very time-consuming job. But this brush really did a great job and sped up the process!" —Amanda

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in eight colors).

    10. A drain cover so you can fill your tub up to the max and get the full body soak you truly deserve — because what's the point of taking a bath if your shoulders and knees aren't even covered?!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "We just moved into a new home and the bathtubs are *SO* shallow. My soul was slowly being ripped to pieces while soaking in a measly seven inches of water. This product seriously improved the quality of my life. It's a softer, malleable plastic than I originally thought, but convenient for different shaped tubs since it will mold easier. All I have to do to turn my nightmare tub into a dream is to run the suction cups under the faucet and snap the suction cups into place over the bath drain. It was so easy! I got an instant 5 inches more of water!! For $8?! I think yes! Crowds applauded and cried, it was beautiful. After each bath I remove the drain cover and hang it from my shower caddy to dry out." —Rachael

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (available in four colors).

    11. A pair of scrub brushes to remove all that gunk and grime from grout, in between shower doors, and that weird space behind your sink's faucet.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, these brushes! I was moving out of my old house and had to get it cleaned to military specs as it was base housing, and I needed something to really help me get it cleaned." —Katelynn C.

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

    12. Or get a more even cleaning with a small but impressive power scrubber that's basically like an electric toothbrush for your grout! The tiny-but-mighty brush head will aggressively swish back and forth to take away years of built-on dirt in between your tiles.

    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 $17.99.

    13. An all-purpose scrubber kit to turn your power drill into the ultimate cleaning tool 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, hand-scrubbing 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 bristle stiffnesses).

    14. 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!

    amazon.com

    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 $9.99 (available in two sizes or a pack of two).

    15. A jar of toilet fizzies — which are basically bath bombs for your toilet. Simply plop one in the bowl and let the blend of sodium bicarbonate and citric acid break down stains and kill any lingering bacteria. Oh, and it's also loaded with eucalyptus essential oil to make your porcelain throne smell like a fancy spa.

    Happy Earth Boutique/Etsy

    Promising review: "The eucalyptus is strong and it fizzes nicely. I drop one in once or twice a week and scrub the toilet a bit, and the scent lingers after flushing. Perfect for keeping my bathroom fresh!" —kd Bromley

    Happy Earth Boutique is a woman-owned small business making healthier alternatives for your health and home.

    Get it from Happy Earth Boutique on Etsy for $12+ (available with or without a refillable jar).

    16. 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.

    amazon.com

    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).

    17. A nifty gadget to turn a pea-sized amount of your favorite liquid facial cleanser into a cloud-like mound of fluffy foam that is much easier to spread and feels amazing on sensitive skin.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Does exactly what it advertises: makes a thick whipped cream/foam out of washes, making it economical as well as fun. It can 'soften' harsh washes to make the concoction gentler on skin. It's also great for mixing washes if you have two or more you'd like to combine for different effects. And of course, a little goes a long, long way with this puppy." —KnockKnockMe

    Get it from Amazon for $7.

    18. An expandable shelf that will help you make the most out of that awkward space under your sink. It's fully adjustable, so you can easily fit it around your sink's pipes.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Great product for a great price. Very sturdy, but lightweight and small. Under my bathroom sink is *very* small, and the metal frame is thin enough that it doesn't take up much space, and of course it allows me to utilize the empty vertical space instead of shoving things all the way to the back wall." —Jennifer Mowry

    Get it from Amazon for $24.97 (available in three colors).

    19. 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 semiregular 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.

    20. Or ditch your flimsy toilet-cleaning brush for a heavy-duty pumice cleaning stone to cut through hard water rings and calcium buildup, because your porcelain throne should always be clean and sparkly.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm so embarrassed to show how disgusting my toilets have been, but it's worth it for me to help anyone who has suffered as I have. We built our house and have lived in it 33 years. We dug a well and the water was beautiful, until air hit it. The copper, iron, and lime are all so high the chart doesn't even go that high. We have spent thousands on a huge filter that filters all the water coming into the house from the well. My toilets have been disgusting to me, though clean (as clean as I can get them). This pumice stone — HOLY MOLY — my toilets are clean!!!!! I am totally amazed. It took about 30 minutes on each one. The stains are gone. THEY ARE GONE!!!!!!" —Libby Nance

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (also available packs of two or four).

    21. OR! Some classic Clorox tabs — they 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 $9.39.

    22. A squeezable gel stain remover 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.

    amazon.com

    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 morning. Don’t hesitate: Buy this now — you won’t regret it." —Bianca Green

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    23. A weekly scrub-free mist to stop mold and mildew from forming before they have a chance to take over your entire tub. Just spray and walk away — your future self will be SO grateful.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Does a FANTASTIC job if used regularly. I love this product. I hate cleaning tubs. This product has made our tubs look new. I don't use it every shower...maybe every third. Just spray down everything after the shower, and forget about it. You DO need to rinse tub before next shower due to product making it slick. The fumes of other cleaners always messed with my asthma. I have noticed that for some reason with this one, I sneeze twice, because I have to spray shower doors while Im still in the shower...but it never affects my lungs. I would recommend this to EVERYONE!" —Angela GIllaird

    Get enough to last 12 weeks from Amazon for $16.89.

    24. A bottle holder that keeps your shampoos and body washes upside down so you'll never have to shake your bottles to get every last ounce out.

    Get a pack of three from Jae and Jay on Etsy for $20.

    25. A 20-pack of cleaning erasers — they're more affordable than name brands but still...um...magic, if you catch my drift. These little sponges use just water to lift away tough stains — and the results are downright soothing.

    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 $10.95.

    26. A rust stain-removing powder for when you want to get rid of rust stains but don't have time to put in any elbow grease. Simply apply it, wait a few minutes for the rust to dissolve, and then lightly wipe it away.

    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 $10.63+ (available in three sizes and a four-pack).

    Get it from TheNoisy3DShop on Etsy for $14.99 (available in five colors).

    28. A showerhead with two spray settings so you can adjust the pressure to your exact liking. This will be such a time-saver the next time you use a super thick hair mask that takes approximately three hours to fully rinse out.

    Promising review: "I'm amazed! We live in a pre-war New York City apartment and it seemed that poor water pressure in the shower that barely extended beyond the wall was par for the course. We just installed this shower head and now the water stream extends to the other side of the tub! Looking forward to finally taking a satisfying shower after all this time." —TWNYC

    Get it from Amazon for $18.70.

    29. And a jetted tub cleaner if your tub is just a little too grimy for comfort. It'll remove all the gunk trapped in the places you can't even see, so your tub will be the cleanest it's ever been.
