    1. An extremely popular oven cleaner with before-and-after results that are downright jaw-dropping. If you still have some caked-on nastiness in your oven from Thanksgiving, it's time to add to cart.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Oh man, this stuff is awesome! I sprayed and left it on overnight. I had no idea what to expect. I took a paper towel and started wiping out the oven. The grime just melted away. It was awesome!" —KsGrl444

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $22.97.

    2. A pack of stainless steel wipes to tackle any pesky fingerprints and practically transform your refrigerator doors into shiny mirrors.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this product! It is so easy and convenient to use. I can get by using only one or two of the wipes for all the appliances and stainless steel items in my kitchen. It removes all smudges and leaves a nice even shine everywhere." —Gloria S.

    Get a two-pack of 30-count tubs on Amazon for $16.23.

    3. A garbage disposal cleaner that foams up to help break down any food residue that's been lingering in there for far too long. I'm starting to feel like adulthood is just learning about all the things you never realized you were supposed to be cleaning.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Seeing is believing. Not only does it do a great job, but you can see it happening. It doesn’t just mask the smell and leave a lemon scent like some products, it cleans too and looks fun. Idk. Blue foam comes out and that’s good enough for me." —sylvie yah

    Get a two pack of four-count bags on Amazon for $10.25.

    4. A set of cleaning K-Cups to remove all of the built-up grime in your Keurig machine. You'd be surprised how much coffee residue and old coffee grinds can get stuck in the dispenser.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this product because the needle in my Keurig 2.0 keeps clogging, causing inconsistent brew and taste. These cleaning cups fixed both of my issues and I especially liked that it was really quick and easy to use… I put the cleaning pod in and ran one cycle, then took the pod out and ran a rinse cycle to clean out any leftover grinds. FAST, EASY, and GREAT results…VERY HAPPY!!" —Corey West

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $9.95.

    5. Or a descaling solution that'll break down all of the limescale buildup inside your electric kettle or coffee maker, because I regret to inform you that the interior also needs cleaning. If your coffee just isn't hitting the spot like it used to, it's probably time to run a cleaning cycle.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had never even thought of descaling my 2-year-old Keurig before Amazon suggested it, but this stuff was cheap, I knew I was supposed to descale regularly, and I knew this kind of descaler wouldn't be as hard to rinse out as the smell of vinegar.

    I honestly wasn't expecting much, but the next morning it took much less time for the water to heat up and my coffee tasted twice as strong and rich as it did before descaling, which means the brewing temperature is higher now that the heating element isn't caked with mineral deposits. Now I feel a little silly for drinking mediocre coffee for so long." —Lenore

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $13.99.

    6. A granite and stone cleaner – not only will it have your countertops looking ready for the pages of Architectural Digest but it also kills 99.9% of germs and bacteria.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is my go-to granite cleaner and I’ve tried a lot! Actually gets counters clean without a film or streak and not a lot of elbow grease." —Lori

    Get it from Amazon for $6.18.

    7. A gas range cleaning spray to cut through grime and grease and eliminate any evidence that your roommates are total slobs. Now I'm just projecting.

    amazon.com

    This stuff is THE TRUTH. My roommate is the best, but let's just say wiping down the stove after cooking is not one of her favorite activities. I'm not particular fond of doing the dishes, so I guess we're even. Anyways, I spray this on a few times a week, let it sit for about 5 minutes, then wipe with a cloth and it removes EVERYTHING. Like, every little spot of caked-on grease and burnt crumbs come off with just one wipe.

    Get a two pack from Amazon for $22.99.

    8. An easily-washable drip catcher so you'll no longer have a giant puddle at the back of your sink every time you wash some dishes.

    TwoLilacsStudio/Etsy

    Promising review: "LOVE these splash catchers! They save me from having to chase the puddles that form around the base of our faucet before they start creeping over the counter. So reasonably priced, made well with neatly finished edges, and packaged with gift-ready care." —Alina

    TwoLilacsStudio is a small Etsy shop based in Saint Helens, Oregon.

    Get it from TwoLilacsStudio on Etsy for $10.50+ (available in four sizes and 10 colors).

    9. A clog remover that will dissolve through any built-up grease and food scraps, because no, your sink shouldn't take five minutes to completely drain.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I had two drains in the house that were making the 'glug glug' noise when they drained. One in the bathroom sink where I shave, the other in the kitchen sink. Neither was blocked, but the noise indicated they were getting close. I'd tried to snake the kitchen sink myself, then had a professional do it. They said they couldn't get it through an elbow to get to where the partial blockage was. So, while they didn't charge me for it I was still stuck with 'glug glug' when the dishwasher drained or we used the kitchen sink.

    Green Gobbler down both drains and left overnight eliminated the 'glug glug.' I'm satisfied with the results. Much easier than snaking, and apparently more effective." —M

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    10. A chainmail scrubber so you can effectively clean all of the burned-on grime on your cast-iron skillets without removing the seasoning or causing damage. It's also safe for use on waffle makers, griddles, and casserole dishes, so you basically have no excuse for having less-than-immaculate dishes.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Prior to purchasing this, our cast-iron cleaning routine consisted of rinsing followed by a quick scrub using coarse sea salt and a paper towel. This gadget is great for a more thorough cleaning, especially on stubborn areas. It's very effective and cleaning is quite easy, requiring nothing more than a quick rinse. The small ring attached to it is useful for hanging on a pot rack. Recommended." —Cooking the Books

    Get it from Amazon for $10.98.

    11. A handy brush that will scrub away at every nook and cranny of your utensils, because giving them a quick swipe with your sponge is really not cutting it.

    Promising review: "I bought this brush to quickly and safely clean knives and it works great for them, but I also use it to clean the sealing ring from my Instant Pot! Fast and easy!" —PrimeShopper

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

    12. A set of "paperless" towels – they work just as well to clean your hands as it does to wipe up that glass of wine you inevitably end up spilling on Bachelor night.

    HammerThreadHandmade/Etsy

    Promising review: "I love the charcoal gray towels I got so much I just ordered another set. I'm finding more and more ways to use them, instead of paper, every day: under draining fruits and vegetables, in the refrigerator where our freezer leaks, under my tea pot and compost container, at the master bath sink to wipe up after brushing our teeth and one has been designated as the 'water on the floor' towel. We have definitely cut down on our paper towel use." —katerhoad1

    HammerThreadHandmade is a family-owned Etsy shop based in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

    Get a pack of seven from HammerThreadHandmade on Etsy for $37 (available in eight patterns).

    13. A grout cleaning kit to loosen up all the dirt in between your tiles, because a sparkly clean floor can go a long way in revitalizing your kitchen.

    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 included (1) the instructions on both the bottle and with the product were clear and I followed them to a tee, (2) the perfect brush that came with it that 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 and definitely wait the 10 minutes then wiggle the brush in the grout lines. The soil comes up quickly." —Karen

    Get a set from Amazon for $39.95.

    14. Or a steam mop that'll get rid of any sticky messes and eliminate 99.9% of germs and bacteria without using harsh chemicals.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've had this floor mop/steamer for a couple of months now and I absolutely love it! I can't believe the dirt that is picked up off my tile floors, even after vacuuming and wet mopping all surfaces. The steamer is extremely easy to use and heats up quickly." —GCC

    Get it from Amazon for $89.

    15. A washable, reusable sponge with scrubby mesh on one side and soft cotton terry cloth on the other. Plus, those prints are way more adorable than that green-and-yellow sponges you have in you sink right now.

    PorterLees/Etsy

    Promising review: "So glad I finally found an environmentally friendly sponge THAT WORKS! I tried all the other kinds of eco-friendly sponges before these - silicon (don't work on stuck stuff), vegetable fiber (got so mildew-y so fast), and even crocheted (felt so gross and didn't work great). These do the job and then after a few days I just throw them in the wash! Hooray! And they're cute!" —willowbe0416

    PorterLees is a family-owned Etsy shop based in Portland, Oregon that specializes in homemade reusable goods.

    Get it from PorterLees on Etsy for $9.

    16. A wood cleaner to bring some life back to your dingy cabinets. If you have cabinets over your stove, trust me, they're probably due for a good deep cleaning.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Finally! A product that does not leave a sticky film on my furniture. I love this product. It rubs in easily, and buffs to a natural shine. The wood is left looking healthy and with a natural glow, not a heavy fake glossy polish. And best of all, there is no residue. The smell is pleasant and dissipates quickly. Which is a huge plus for me because I am super sensitive to perfumes." —Quinn Perkins

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    17. An oven scrub made with gritty pumice stone so you can really go to town on that lasagna that exploded and left a mess everywhere. It'll even clean all the hard-to-reach spots on your racks and oven door.

    CleaningStudio/Etsy

    Promising review: "Finally tackled the rings on our stove top with this scrub and a reusable paper towel (as I was worried about using a scourer on an easily scratched surface) and the rings came right off! These are those "oh, crap, the pot boiled over" rings that I ignored that lead to my stove top looking a bit crusty. The oven scrub ate them right off and left my oven and stove top looking great." —Jessie Bono

    Cleaning Studio is a small Etsy shop based in Fairfield, Connecticut that specializes in cleaning products.

    Get it from CleaningStudio on Etsy for $17.99+ (available in plastic or glass jar).

    18. An inexpensive but super effective spray to disinfect basically any surface in your home, which will definitely come in handy when you need to mindlessly clean your kitchen after a long day.

    Promising review: "First, I loooooove the smell. It's so good. Next, this stuff eats up gunk and grease like a mofo. I cook and I get all these gnarly food smells in the kitchen that don't go away. This ate all of them right on up. It cleans all the grease out of my stainless steel sink. I put some on a paper towel and ran it across some caked up enchilada sauce on the counter. I didn't even have to scrub. The stain just came up." —Bye Felicia

    Get it from Amazon for $3.77.

    19. A bar soap that will completely change the way you hand-wash your dishes. Instead of dealing with bulky plastic bottles and liquid that's easy to waste, you simply swipe the bar over your dishes and get to scrubbing.

    BrooklynMadeNatural/Etsy

    Promising review: "My husband was skeptical that this soap would work (he's a conventional soap guy), but we both love it! We especially love how well it cuts grease and rinses so easily, saving us time doing dishes (which, with four little kids in the house, can take a good amount of time). We will definitely buy again." —Christopher Gitzke

    BrooklynMadeNatural is a family-owned small business based in Los Angeles that specializes in eco-friendly products.

    Get a bar of soap and storage tin from BrooklynMadeNatural on Etsy for $15.

    20. A cooktop glass cleaner that will break grease and grime — and it even saved one BuzzFeeder from ruining their grandparents' stove.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My snowbird grandparents have been sending me to check on their summer home occasionally while they quarantine in Florida, so I've had the fun job of shoveling snow off their deck and finagling a million envelopes out of their overstuffed mailbox over the past few months. On my most recent visit I decided to stay for a few days, and was intent on cooking myself a lavish meal. Well, I've never really used an electric stove before and, I don't know WHAT I did, but there were giant streaks and marks all over it after I was done. I tried everything to get them off, and I am definitely NOT overreacting! I finally mustered up the courage to tell my grandparents I ruined their stove, only for them to break out in laughter. Grandma instructed me to use get this cleaner below the sink and, well, the rest is history. It literally wiped the streaks away before my eyes. Magic." —Griffin Gonzales

    Get it it from Amazon for $8.59.

    21. A 20-pack of cleaning erasers – they're are 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 therapeutic.

    amazon.com

    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.

    22. 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.

    amazon.com

    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.

    23. A scrubbing sponge that's not only ridiculously cute but also changes texture based on the water's temperature. It stays firm with cold water for heavy-duty scrubbing, but gets softer in warm water for lighter cleaning tasks.

    Promising review: "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

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $9.99.

    24. A cleaning kit to make your ceramic cooktop look as shiny and flawless as the day you moved in.

    amazon.com

    The kit comes with a bottle of cleaner, a cleaning pad and a heavy-duty scraper that are all designed to break down burnt-on foods and tough stains.

    Promising review: "As soon as I used this stuff, I couldn't believe it! We had a new stove that I didn't clean for months and assumed the burnt pea juice (my enemy) would just be a new stain forever. However, after one application, it was basically gone. I used the scraper that came with it and did one more small application on just that spot, and it was gone! Every time I use this it looks like my stove could be brand-new." —Christi Lambertson

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    25. 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 $10.99+ (available in two sizes or a pack of two).

    26. An Angry Mom cleaner that uses the power of sheer anger (and steam) to eliminate dirt and stains from your microwave.

    Amazon

    You simply fill her up with water or vinegar and pop in the microwave for five to seven minutes while the steam does all the work for you.

    Promising review: "I thought this might be a little gimmicky, but, I was willing to give it a try. I am glad I did! I barely had to touch the cleaning cloth to the walls of my microwave and the gunk just slid right off!" —W. Taylor

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in four colors and a pack of two).

    27. These magical heavy-duty cleaning wipes so you can remove everything from grease to ink stains with zero water required. It's also formulated with aloe and vitamin E so it's gentle on your skin.

    Amazon

    These wipes are nonabrasive so they're safe to use on smooth surfaces like car exteriors.

    Promising review: "I have a small kitchen, and everything tends to get an oily, greasy film on it very quickly. I don't have a tile back splash or a range hood, and my fridge is right next to my stove, so the paint on the wall and the textured fridge get pretty disgusting. The tiniest little oil splatter seems to cover my whole kitchen. When these wipes arrived yesterday, I attacked my kitchen with them. They worked amazingly well! I didn't realize how much grease was really sticking to everything until I saw how disgusting the wipes were getting. Luckily, they're huge, so I was able to cover a lot before a needed a new one.

    I have very sensitive skin, and these didn't dry my hands out at all. I also get severe migraines, which are easily triggered by chemical smells, and these have a nice, lemony scent that didn't trigger me at all. 10 stars!" —Michele West

    Get a 90-pack from Amazon for $13.94 (available in two sizes and multipacks).

    28. A pack of cleaning tablets because your dishwasher is probably way dirtier than you imagine. These will break down lime and mineral build-up so your dishes come out looking as sparkly as they do in all those dish soap commercials.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "After using this product, I am happy to report that my $5 investment saved me over $500. I was ready to replace my dishwasher, due to super cloudy glasses, residue, and just not getting clean. Then I saw a product test review for Affresh in Good Housekeeping magazine. I was ordering some stuff from Amazon anyway, so I added that to my order. I did not expect the results I got! The glassware that I thought was permanently etched and ruined came out like new. Same with cutlery. The difference is unbelievable. I am amazed!" —Sheila

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $5.98.

    29. A genius brush and squeegee combo so you can swipe all your countertop messes directly into the sink. It even has a built-in ledge so you can hang it when not in use.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "LOVE THIS PRODUCT! Saves me so many paper towels, easily washed in the dishwasher, and the small size saves space! Will always have one of these on hand for sure!" —Prime Time Review

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    30. A soap dispensing sponge holder that saves space and will help you fly through your dishes in record time. Plus, it's so much more aesthetically pleasing than leaving a bottle of dish soap on the sink.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Saw this soap dispenser on TikTok (like a bunch of other people did) and decided to get it and I LOVE IT! It's very practical and it doesnt take up too much space. I've only used it a couple times but I feel like it controls how much soap you use, preventing you from using too much." —Helena

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    31. A set of Swedish dishcloths that can absorb over 20x their weight and are gritty enough to tackle tough messes. They're essentially the perfect reusable alternative to paper towels and sponges, so you can go ahead and cross those off your grocery list forever.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these. For quite a while I have been frustrated with kitchen/dish towels. I find most to be not nearly absorbent enough, too large and awkward, and needing frequent disinfecting to avoid smelling funky.

    These towel sponges are exactly what I needed in a dish cloth. They are absorbent, just the right size, antimicrobial, and easy to clean! Add in that they are sourced from a small family business and I'm thrilled." —Nathaniel Rider

    Get a pack of 10 from Amazon for $19.95+ (available in five colors and a variety pack).

    32. And a set of stove counter gap covers, because you'd be surprised at how many stray crumbs make their way in that space between your stove and countertop.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    These are heat-resistant up to 446 degrees F so you don't have to worry about them melting while you cook. They're easy to wipe clean but you can also toss them into the dishwasher.

    Promising review: "I can't believe how much crud I have cleaned out between my counter and my stove. This lays in the opening between the two so nothing gets down the space between. Just lay it down very easily, and it stays put. It looks like it is part of the stove. It is easy to clean; just wipe off when you clean the stove or counter. I have had no problem with melting as it is not on the burners, it is on the side of the stove. However, it is heat resistant, so the heat from the stove will not bother it. I would definitely buy this again." —Joanne

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $9.95.
