    1. A sprayable oven cleaner that loosens everything up so you'll barely even have to scrub. All my fellow lazy cleaners, this one's for you!

    2. A pack of cleaning tablets to clean your dishwasher for you, because it's 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.

    3. A pack of scratch-free, odor-resistant Scrub Daddy sponges that are not only ridiculously cute but also change 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. Also, the mouth can be used to clean both sides of your utensils at the same time, and that's just pure genius.

    4. A brush shaped like a freshly bloomed flower to add some positive vibes to your least favorite chore. It even comes with its own little vase so it doubles as super cute kitchen décor!

    5. A roll of bamboo paper towels that are way more durable and absorbent than the ones you have in your kitchen right now. They're also easily machine-washable up to 100 times, so you can basically cross paper towels off your grocery list forever.

    6. Or a set of heavy-duty "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.

    7. A chainmail scrubber so you can actually 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 everything else you barely bother cleaning.

    8. 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.

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

    10. 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.

    11. A genius brush and squeegee combo so you can quickly just 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.

    12. A bottle of Hope's Perfect Sink cleaner and polish to make any stainless-steel, cast-iron, porcelain, or acrylic appliance as shiny as the day you got it.

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

    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 five 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 $14.69 (also available in packs of three and eight).

    14. 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 bathroom and kitchen.

    15. 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.

    16. Or a garbage disposal brush to help you manually scrub any built-up food residue that's probably causing that mysterious stank in your kitchen right now.

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

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

    19. Or a box of coffee machine-cleaning powder to flush out all of the gunk inside that you didn't even know was there. It'll also make your coffee taste way less bitter and get your carafe as sparkly clean as the day you bought it!

    20. 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.

    21. A tub of cooktop wipes so you can easily swipe up any mess before it has time to become caked-on grime. It also works on microwaves if that's the only kind of oven you use on a regular basis.

    22. 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.

    23. A jar of the TikTok-famous Pink Stuff, which is basically the Powerpuff Girl of cleaning products: it looks cute but packs a serious punch. Once you use it to tackle the grime in your oven, you can use it to spruce up your tiles or give your shower door a good scrub down.

    24. A microwave steam cleaner, because the mess in there doesn't just disappear when you close the door and walk away. This little device uses the power of sheer anger (and steam) to eliminate dirt and stains from your microwave.

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

    26. A set of washable liners that'll catch the lasagna that's bubbling over before it has a chance to reach the bottom and basically become a permanent part of your oven forever.

    27. A pack of foil liners to catch all of the grease and oil splatters that basically do a full acrobatic routine in the air and land right underneath your burner on your gas stovetop. You can just toss and replace 'em once they get too dirty.

    28. Or these similar liners for electric ranges that are perfectly sized to fit right underneath the burner, so you can wave goodbye to scrubbing that pasta sauce that accidentally spilled over.

    29. A nonabrasive, bleach-free cleaning and polishing powder you can sprinkle on everything from cookware, sinks, stoves, bathtubs, and toilets.

    30. Or! 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!
