1. A cooktop cleaner that'll have your electric stove sparkling without damaging it.

amazon.com

Promising review: "Let me say this — there is nothing out there that can clean your electric cooktop surface better than this! PERIOD! If you have an electric stove, please do yourself a favor and just buy this. I use a regular paper towel to do the cleaning and no matter how dirty, messy, stained, or greased the stove top gets, this will make it BRAND NEW every single time!" —ItsJustBlah

2. A concentrated-gel mold and mildew cleaner designed to get deep into your crevices and get rid of that ugly (and sometimes dangerous) buildup.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "We had tried bleach along with other spray-on options and nothing worked. This was a last resort before I just removed it by putty knife and recaulked. I have to be honest, I did not expect the result to be this good and this easy to accomplish. I had two separate corners I applied this to and the result was the same, mold is gone. I applied it three times for a total of about five hours apart and have around a half bottle left. All I did was apply and use a rubber glove to spread around. I did not think the smell was too strong — reminded me of an indoor pool chlorine smell. The smell went away after several hours. After final application, I just took a wet paper towel and wiped off the excess gel. The ease of use and final result of this product was simply amazing. This far exceeded my expectations. I would definitely buy this again." —David H.

3. A canister of Bar Keepers Friend, because this stuff is basically the superhero of cleaning supplies: a powder that can remove rust and hard-water stains without being abrasive, leaving everything it touches clean and totally polished.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "This stuff is amazing! It removes shower/faucet/commode scale and deposits like nothing else I have ever used. As a retired PhD chemist, I am always interested in great home cleaning products and how they work. One active ingredient in this is oxalic acid, an extremely strong chelating agent that I am familiar with from the laboratory. Without getting too technical, a chelating agent binds super strongly to metals (magnesium, calcium, iron, etc.). Since bathroom scale is mainly magnesium carbonate with some calcium carbonate, the oxalic acid reacts with the scale, sucking out the metal and turning the carbonate to carbon dioxide (a gas) and therefore making the scale disappear." —Kindle Customer

4. A pack of heavy-duty multi-surface cleaning wipes for help getting those gross and messy spills without any water.

Promising review: "The best darn wipes for kitchen cleaning ever. Do you have grease? They take it down. Do you have splatter? They'll cut through it like a knife. Did you spill butter? How dare you. But they'll clean that too. I recommend wiping the surface down with something else first and using these to get that hard-to-reach gunk. They are thin, so don't expect them to act like a washcloth. These are the finishers. These make it shine." —Mr. BlackGet a pack of two containers with 40 wipes each from Amazon $13.73.

7. A 100% natural pumice stone toilet bowl cleaner that'll scrub away any rust or lime buildup on your porcelain throne.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "We rented a home and the toilets were disgusting. Someone suggested a pumice stone and let me tell you, it was amazing!! The picture is after just five minutes with the stone. I tried bleach, every toilet bowl cleaner available, and countless hours of scrubbing to no avail...but this stone worked instantly! I will be buying several more!! The stone does dissolve when scrubbing so you need a couple. I was able to do almost two toilets that looked awful completely with one stone!!" —CristaCross

Get it from Amazon for $9.13.

8. A box of Borax for washing laundry, eliminating odors, getting rid of mildew, making slime, cleaning up slime — basically anything you want to clean, Borax will help!

Promising review: "This product has been around for ages. I remember my mom using it when she washed the baby's diapers. I forgot about it until recently when I saw a recipe on how to get out old set-in stains. I mixed it up and rubbed it into all of the stains and let it sit for a few hours. I then washed them like regular and wow, all of the stains were gone! Yes, there were a few that stayed but for the most part the stains were gone. I also tried it on our bed pillows. You know how your pillows can get yellowed? Well, use Borax on them and you will see the stains go away. Just soak the pillows on the hottest setting for a good few hours and then wash them like normal. You will be happy!" —LostOsbourneGet it from Walmart for $4.47.

9. A garbage disposal cleaner that'll reach far into the depths of your drain pipes to rid them of odor-causing, stuck-on grunge.

amazon.com

Promising review: "This stuff really cleans my sink and disposal of the foul odor that sometimes develops. I've tried everything to get rid of the smell from the garbage disposal: vinegar, bleach, ice, various other products, baking soda, baking soda with vinegar, boiling water. Nothing seemed to get rid of the smell. This stuff does. I like it so much!" —Carol L. Hill

10. A pack of silver wipes to finally restore all your fancy AF pieces back to their sparkling selves.

Promising review: "I don't have a ton of silver, but when I was organizing my cabinets I found that my silver pitcher and silver cream and sugar bowls were totally tarnished. I have many memories of helping my mom polish her silver every year or two. I enjoyed the task of it but hated the rotten egg smell that came with her old Tarn-X. So when I went on the hunt for some polish to spiff up my silver I was looking for something that would keep things simple and wouldn't stink up my apartment. I ordered these and got to work as soon as I got it in the mail. It was so satisfying to watch the tarnish wipe right off! It took me three to four wipes for the pitcher and two for each the cream and sugar bowls. It looks like I probably used 1/3 of the container. (Though the wipes were still very saturated, they had so much black/tarnish I would start a new rag. I'm not sure if it's recommended to just keep using it even when it gets all ruddy?)" —Lauren Get two 20-packs from Amazon for $11.98.

11. A uniquely formulated, water-activated stain remover for a serious and safe clean that you can use on a variety of projects — from scrubbing bricks to laundry.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I used this to clean a brick patio and it worked really well! I diluted eight scoops in two gallons of warm water, poured the solution over the brickwork, left for 10 minutes and then scrubbed with a stiff brush and a scrubbing brush for stubborn areas." —JS

Get it from Amazon for $12.48.

12. A stainless steel cleaner made of plant-based ingredients to help clean and protect against streaks, smudges, and fingerprints.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I had high hopes for this product and they have been met, if not exceeded. With only a small amount of product it cleans and polishes without leaving streaks. There is not a lot of rubbing involved, just wipe on and a few strokes to polish off. I am very pleased with the product and have purchased it again for my daughter." —J amz online

Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

13. A urine remover, because sometimes your pup (or kids) have accidents and you need to tackle both the stain and odor at once.

Promising review: "We have an old Yorkie who seems to pee everywhere. This product works instantly and better than any of the other stuff we've tried. It's quick and doesn't smell 'chemically.' Got the yellow out of the marble floors and rugs he frequents. I don't want to lose the dog so I'm going to have to stock up on this." —Edgar Ruiz Jr.Get it from Amazon for $4.97.

14. An acid-free grout cleaner that goes in deep to get even the dirtiest, grossest crevices so clean you could eat off of them.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "Great product from what I can see. As described it does not work for soap stains, but for plain dirty grout, it makes the job as easy as possible. My bathroom grout (white tile/grout) was nasty from the previous owners of the house. About an hour on the floor with this product and the grout looks as good as it ever. Spray it on, give it a minute to soak in, and scrub. You can see the dirt come up immediately. Wipe up with water and done. I'll probably make another pass to get a few spots that I didn't allow to soak in properly, but as you can see it does work well." —M. Smith

Get it from Amazon for $10.98.

15. A screen-cleaning kit, because the amount of filth hanging out on your phone and computer screen is really out of control — really, really out of control.

Promising review: "I'm a grad student. I live on my laptop. I work on my laptop. I eat over my laptop. I quickly try to do my makeup and hair over my laptop. I hurriedly attempt to edit thesis chapters on grimy public transit with my laptop. As a result of all this, my laptop is an unholy crud-encrusted atrocity by the end of the week. I will not even describe its supreme grodiness here lest you, dear reader, grow too disgusted to continue reading this needlessly wordy review I'm typing up to postpone the further editing of said thesis. It's pretty bad. In any event, this stuff is a godsend. I've tried other products to make my laptop look vaguely respectable, but they tend to leave streaks, fail to despeckle the harder specks from my screen, and make little headway with regards to the greasy blotches so many not-well-thought-out late fast food runs have left on my keys. This product, though, gets my computer clean and pleasant looking to the point where I am only slightly embarrassed to haul it around as though it were some extension of my person. I use it on pretty much all of my devices now, and even though I'm not the sort of person to particularly care about the "naturalness" of a cleaning product, I'm glad to have something on hand that isn't scented and probably won't destroy things I spill it on." —Leah DavydovGet the kit (which includes a microfiber cleaning cloth and cleaning solution) from Amazon for $19.95.

16. A pack of cleaning cups that'll help make sure your favorite French roast and mint tea don't transfer flavors.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "Just pop it in and run one reservoir of water through the system. It is blue but unclogs and does a great job of cleaning. When I used the white vinegar method I'd have to rinse it quite a few times to get rid of the vinegar taste in the water. I definitely recommend this to others. I believe it works in all systems that use the K-cup." —Brandi

17. A gentle yet effective leather cleaner that's made with UVX 15 sunscreen to prevent your favorite pieces from fading, drying, and cracking.

Promising review: "This is a great product for stinky washers. I have a 15-year-old front-loader that was suddenly getting stinky. I was getting mentally prepared to toss it and get a new washer and dryer, but I decided to try this first. TA-DAAAA! It worked with just one cycle and months later the smell has not returned. I am recommending this to all of my friends!" —M. K. JohnsonGet a box of six tablets from Amazon for $13.

Promising review: "My mom absolutely loves this stuff. She is an obsessive cleaner and buys every product there is. She tried this on stainless steel, glass, granite, windows, tile — you name it, it got sprayed. It doesn't leave any streaks, smells great with no chemical scent, is natural, and is reasonably priced too!" —Graduate StudentGet two spray bottles from Amazon for $13.29.

20. A time-tested and powerful laundry bar so strong it's capable of removing poison ivy resin and preventing further outbreak.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "My daughter is a catcher on a competitive softball team and this gets her white uniform pants clean! I fill a bucket with water to get the pants wet and rinse the loose dirt off. Then I rub the bar on the pants, (like you would a bar of soap and a washcloth) until the pants are full of soap foam. Then I look the pants over for more set-in stains and rub the pants to work those out. Then I throw them in the washer on heavy wash with a just a little bleach (you could use your favorite white brightener). These pants took about 10 minutes." —Terri Medellin

Get two bars from Amazon for $6.45.

21. An EPA-registered dishwasher cleaner capable of ridding your appliance of any signs of limescale, rust, grease, and even disinfecting against E. coli and salmonella.

amazon.com

Promising review: "We moved into a new house and the dishwasher had lots of buildup on it. I followed the directions exactly (placed it upside down and ran it on the hottest cycle) and after one use the dishwasher was sparkling. I would highly recommend this for anyone. I have yet to see a need to use the second bottle but I'm saving it. This really cleaned the whole dishwasher and removed stuff from shelves, the sides, and bottom. Very happy with it, you can see in the before/after pic." —Vhorsen

Get it from Amazon $5.25.

22. A Magic f#@%ing Eraser that, quite honestly, was probably invented at Hogwarts because the way it can remove scuffs and stains off almost anything is straight-up magical.

amazon.com

Promising review: "These erasers are exactly what they claim to be — MAGIC! My apartment has white walls throughout, and these erasers get out all kinds of blemishes. A few months ago, don't ask me what I was doing but somehow my hand jerked while I was literally just standing next to my dresser which had a lit candle, and I sent the candle flying. I got red wax all over my white wall! For about two minutes I went into a sheer panic mode, but then I calmed down and used my head. I waited for the wax to harden a little, then used my nail to scrape it off (I don't recommend this, the feeling and the sound is excruciating). Once I scraped it all off, it left a pink stain where the wax had been, so I grabbed my magic eraser, added a little water and watched my wall transform back to its pristine self." —LL

Get a box of eight pads from Amazon for $6.82.

23. A serious oven and grill cleaner, because burned-on grease is not something your BBQ is supposed to be covered in.

amazon.com

Promising review: "My barbecue has got to be around eight years old at this point and has never been cleaned except for the grates. Basically, the interior was black and the pic will show you what it looks like now. In order to get it this clean, I sprayed all of the interior and let it sit all night with the BBQ cover closed, and then cleaned it in the morning." —kevin

Get it from Amazon for $5.60 or from Walmart for $3.94.

24. A tub cleaner, because if you insist on marinating in your own juices make sure the pot you're doing it in is totally clean.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "This stuff is great! We just bought a house and my hubby cleaned the jetted tub twice with a strong Clorox solution. I bought this product based on the reviews and tried it after. Look at the crud that came out of the jets. Now our tub is all sparkly and clean! 😊" —Rebecca J Flores
