    1. A totally fume-free Easy-Off oven cleaner capable of dissolving some of the grossest, oldest, and built-up messes that your poor little oven has to suffer with.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have an Airbnb rental and I have no idea how people cook or destroy an oven in a weekend...but they do! This is the only thing that works! Buy it...let it soak in for longer for big messes...and be amazed!" —Nikole

    Get it from Amazon for $6.88.

    2. A pack of Affresh dishwasher cleaner tablets for when your favorite appliance needs a little me time — just throw them in and they'll penetrate, dissolve, and remove any odor-causing residue or lime and mineral buildup. Maintenance, folks, it's part of adulthood, who knew.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have to admit I bought this with a lot of skepticism. Our 35-year-old dishwasher wasn't really cleaning dishes, it was only the heated water that sanitized them. Our glasses would come out so cloudy that we were embarrassed to have anyone over and give them something to drink. We have a well so the water is full of minerals. I chalked it up to having to buy a new dishwasher, which we can't afford right now, or doing dishes by hand. But even using vinegar and scrubbing by hand didn't get those glasses clean. We followed instructions and put in two Affresh tablets, then ran the dishwasher. On the next load, things were a little bit better but the glasses were still not great. My husband said we'd just have to buy new glasses. Then I read a review where someone said they put in the Affresh tablet along with the dish soap. So, I tried that on a load of just glassware. It was AMAZING! It was like the glasses were new. We've now been using the dishwasher for a little more than a month and everything is coming out beautifully. We followed instructions and put in two new tablets on the one-month anniversary to make sure we were keeping everything clean. Now we don't have to buy a new dishwasher immediately. I am so surprised and grateful for a product that actually does what it says." —MaggieMae

    Get a pack of six tablets from Amazon for $5.99.

    3. A bottle of fast-acting, nontoxic Folex Carpet Spot Remover – it works on any color carpet or material to remove tough spots and stains. Plus it doesn't leave a sticky residue and it requires no rinsing or vacuuming.

    To use, apply to the stain, gently agitate with your fingers, and blot with an absorbent cloth. This is nontoxic and should be nonirritating on the skin!

    Promising review: "I'm really disappointed I lived without this product for so long. I'm a clean freak and I'm always concocting ways to get stains out of things when I'm not steaming tile for fun. However, I have an overpriced wool carpet that my dogs have destroyed with accidents, bully sticks, and just general recklessness. Moreover, my kids have taken to tossing all sorts of heavily colored foods on the floor for the pups. I gave up on this rug ever being clean again. I've had it professionally cleaned and tried a dozen things myself... and no difference. So I thought I'd try this assuming that it wouldn't work on the stain-determined rug but that'd I use it on my less tenacious ones. I sprayed it on, reading the instructions saying that I didn't need to scrub it, etc. And minutes later, freaking magic. My very pale blue and white rug is virginal. I admit that I did rub it in a little on the harsher stains/discoloration but there were plenty of areas that didn't require any follow-up rubbing. I'm sincerely blown away and just ordered a second bottle. The price of this product is minimal if you're looking to make your rug/carpet like new again so I would absolutely recommend trying it. I don't think I've ever been this impressed with anything I've ever purchased. I feel cheated for not knowing about this sooner." —bubbleslovesoap

    Get it from Amazon for $12.44.

    4. A screen-cleaning kit, because sitting down to relax and watch some Netflix only to realize that there is filth all over your screen is no fun. NO. FUN.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Every now and then a product comes along and performs SO WELL it's surprising. THIS is one of those products. I don't know what they put in this cleaner but it works exceptionally well. Tried it on our big screen (82") TV and it cleaned some tough stains off and left no streaks, none! Spray on — wipe off! EASY! Tough stains? One of our dogs turns his head back and forth quickly sometimes. When he does he occasionally flings a little saliva that landed on the TV and hardened before I saw it. This made light work of it. Did I mention it doesn't STREAK!? It is the first glass or screen cleaner I've seen that doesn't streak. So I used it on all the monitors in my home office and again it cleaned exceptionally well leaving no sign of streaks anywhere. I already have a second 'kit'. This stuff is the bom-diggety of screen cleaners! Very highly recommended!" —D. M. B.

    Get the kit (which includes a microfiber cleaning cloth and cleaning solution) from Amazon for $19.97.

    5. A fizzy toilet cleaning bomb designed to basically work the same way your fave bath bombs work except these are formulated to really get deep into the grime in your toilet and clean it all right up in about five minutes.

    6. A hard-working jar of The Pink Stuff — a cleaning paste designed to get off any and every stuck, caked, and cooked-on mess you can think of.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This. Stuff. Is. Amazing. Just buy it. I have never loved a cleaning product so much. Just moved into a new house and my oven and stove both set the fire alarm off every time. No product (organic or chemical) could get them fully clean except this stuff. I was ready to buy a whole new oven because I couldn’t stand it. I have now gone on a cleaning spree and have used this to remove the rust on my kitchen sink, marker from a dresser (darn kids), grout in the bathroom. The list goes on. I would probably still use a Magic Eraser on painted wood/walls because this is pretty abrasive but other people have done it and had success. The smell/scent is so minimal. Didn’t even notice it. It’s so easy to use. Some things will require more elbow grease than others but that should be expected with any cleaning product. AND this is 99% natural and non-toxic! This part seems too good to be true because of how well it cleans." —NYC Livin

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    7. A super bubbly Glisten Disposer Care Foaming Drain and Pipe Cleaner that'll safely deodorize your garbage disposal while it scrubs away any tough grunge or build-up that causes your sink to back up and maybe even smell a little bit. It comes in a biodegradable packet that you can just drop in.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My new apartment's garbage disposal is slower than most just from the make of it. After using these packets, the garbage disposal cleans SO much quicker and, not to mention, watching the blue foam is beyond satisfying! 10/10 would recommend." —Cindy D

    Get a bag of four from Amazon for $3.98.

    8. A super intense grout cleaner that'll get rid of years and years... and years of gross build-up.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "We moved into our house a year ago and I’ve been on a quest to clean the grout next to the stove ever since then. I’ve tried everything — store products, DIY solutions, Pinterest recommendations, you name it. As a last resort I got this and holy cow! I left it on for three minutes as a spot test at first and I could already see a huge difference. I then did two more rounds letting it sit for five minutes each. The scent's not bad, it was fine if I had the window open, it was just being down close to it that got me. Seriously, stop looking and buy this." —Britney Phillips

    Get it from Amazon for $20.95.

    9. A 33-inch dryer vent cleaner kit that attaches to your vacuum so you can get deep inside your lint trap and pull everything out.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is the only thing that works to adequately clean the lint trap in my dryer without dissembling it. Happy so far." —Bonnie J. Patterson

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98+ (available in six colors).

    10. A very handy bottle of Wine Away red wine stain remover, because maybe the conversation got a little too heated after that second glass.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Absolutely love the product!!!! I had over-a-month-old wine stain all over my dining chair and this Wine Away product removed the old wine stains from my chair. The chair is back to its original look, like new. Amazing product! I spilled red wine all over my chair but cleaning it was super easy. Take a look at the before and after pic. Very happy with the results." —~Gigi~

    Get it from Amazon for $11.85.

    11. A pack of Weiman Stainless Steel Cleaning Wipes capable of getting your grimy sink and appliances to sparkle with just the tiniest bit of elbow grease. They can get rid of fingerprints, residue, water marks, and so much more.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: “I had been online looking at different methods for cleaning my stainless steel appliances with not a lot of success. I finally decided to check Amazon when I came across these wipes. I wish I had taken a before-and-after but after just lightly wiping my stove it looks brand new and the same for my refrigerator. There are streaks on the initial wipe but they dry very quickly. I can't say enough good things about these wipes. They are a perfect way to keep all your stainless steel looking sparkling new.” —Hamhock

    Get two packs of 60 wipes from Amazon for $14.48.

    12. A bottle of the legendary Goo Gone Adhesive Remover that'll get rid of any sticky, gross, and stubborn residue that you honestly thought you'd never be able to get rid of.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I purchased this to remove stubborn warning stickers on my furniture. A friend originally recommended it to me, and it works perfectly. No stains and the goo be gone, yo. 10/10." —James

    Get it from Amazon for $7.29.

    13. A pack of Affresh washing machine tablets to help kill that odd smell and kinda gross buildup that can happen inside your appliance.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The instructions are really simple, toss one tablet in to clean your washer once a month. I appreciate the ease of how it freshens my washing machine. I make sure that when I use it, I also clean out the bottom trap that becomes stinky, and I wipe the rubber seal rings with bleach to make sure all of the mold that could build-up doesn’t get much of a chance to start. Every time I use this, someone comes to tell me there’s a problem with the machine because the Affresh tablet, which is pretty chunky and heavy is going ‘clunk, clunk, clunk’ in the washer and they think something is wrong. But there is never any problem and it always does a good job of refreshing my machine. This is a product I’ve trusted for a while since it does a good job, and I appreciate the way my washer is cleaned after its use. One of my favorites that I added to my Subscribe and Save plan because of that!" —Marina

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $6.99.

    14. A pack of stain-removing, nontoxic cleaning cups perfect for cleaning the inside of your Keurig or K-Cup coffee machine.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Okay, so these cleaner pods are awesome! I didn't know how gross our Keurig was until today. The big mason jar on the left is when I actually ran the cleaner through plus one rinse cycle. The middle one is another rinse cycle and the last one, on the right, is the last one I did. So yes, I would suggest running two or three rinse cycles instead of the recommended one. But it's still an awesome product for the price! I have a Keurig 2.0 and I had no issues." —Mads0421

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $9.95.

    15. A bottle of Better Life Natural Tub and Tile Cleaner — a natural, plant-based cleaner that dissolves soap scum, rust, mold, mildew, hard water stains, and mineral deposits. But the best part is its eucalyptus and tea tree scent.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing!! I was skeptical at first because I have these dark stains on my shower floor that I’ve never been able to get out and was thinking something 'natural' wouldn’t be heavy-duty enough for it. I cleaned half the shower at first because I wanted to see how it looked compared to the dirty side and it did an amazing job with only a little bit of elbow grease! You can see the difference." —Katherine Cheng

    Get two bottles from Amazon for $12.99.

    16. A sturdy Mr. Scrappy Universal Garbage Disposal Brush capable of getting deep so you can scrub away all that built-up residue clogging, stinking, and annoying the heck out of kitchen.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product can be a major kitchen product if you have issues with odors in your garbage disposal. We eat a lot of cereals for breakfast and almost all are loaded with preservatives, which are like glue when they get wet. For two years, we could not get rid of a foul odor for more than a day or two. I purchased this as a last resort, but only expected it to help a little. The first time I used it, I was amazed at how much gunk was brushed away and the odor was reduced. " —C. D. Cornett

    Get it from Amazon for $10.60.

    17. A bottle of Rocco & Roxie Professional Strength Stain & Odor Eliminator for help with any accidents — literally. If your pet has an accident on the rug, this will clean it up.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm not going to lie, this stuff is significantly more expensive than most other available carpet sprays. You could probably buy four or five bottles of Febreze for the cost of this stuff, but the competition won't work nearly as well as Rocco & Roxie. This stuff is AMAZING." —Brian

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    18. A microfiber blinds duster designed with spaced-out fingers so you can brush along every slat of your blinds in a totally painless process.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this product!! It works fantastic! I am a housekeeper for several private homes. My least favorite job is cleaning window blinds! I have used about every method there is, but the job is still very time-consuming. The main reason it takes so long is you must clean each and every slat separately to do the job right. Not any more! With this product, you can clean two slats at once and it cleans them the first swipe! The microfiber is the key to getting all the dust and the design of the product makes it super easy! PLUS this tool can be used on different types of blinds because it is flexible! I have used it on wooden shutters, plastic vertical patio door blinds, and horizontal metal 'mini' blinds. Additionally, the microfiber 'sleeve' that fits on the tool is washable and it comes with five of them so it's a real value, being reusable and with so many to use it should last a long time before they all completely wear out! This product deserves 10 stars!" —Sandy D

    Get the brush and five microfiber sleeves from Amazon for $7.99.

    19. A leather cleaner can help freshen up your couch, chairs...ottomans — any of your leather goods INCLUDING faux leather.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: “I bought a sorta-white leather sectional for $150 stained and dirty but no major wear or tears. Well, the pictures (above) tell it all! It took at least three cycles of gentle scrubbing and wiping off raised dirt and a little extra for bad stains! A lot of elbow grease but holy crap! Super-nice couch now!” —iPoutside365

    Get it from Amazon for $16.10+ (available in two sizes).

    20. An absolutely investment-worthy Housmile mattress vacuum cleaner that'll amaze you with the sheer quantity of disgusting crud it can collect off of your mattress.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Judging from the stuff in the filter on our first try... it appears that it really is getting all the micro-dust from our sofa cushions. I am amazed at all of the crud in the filter. The first time, be prepared to clean the filter after only a few passes. In the past, I have used a regular vacuum attachment and also used a damp cloth to freshen the cushions. Wow! This works so much better. My sinus congestion is at an all-time low. Have not used it on our mattress yet, can only imagine! Am very happy with this machine. Yes, it could be a half-pound or so lighter, but I will not complain." —SuZee

    Get it from Amazon for $74.66.

    21. A FlexiSnake drain cleaning tool for help pulling out some of the most messed-up crap you've ever seen.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Whoa. So easy to use and so satisfying. We moved into a home with a very slow tub drain a few months ago. After a few bottles of Draino, I knew there was a bigger issue causing the tub to fill several inches during showers. We knew the previous tenant had both a long-haired dog and a tenant. But wow. This was gross." —Mary Annne Randall

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    22. A jar of TICARVE Dust Cleaning Gel that'll get into every dusty, crumby crevice in your car and leaving it totally spotless.

    @lollyjaneblog / Via tiktok.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "When I first saw this product I thought 'No way is that really going to work' but for the price, it was worth a try. I got it within two days of purchasing it — and it truly works. I immediately used it on my laptop keyboard and my PC keyboard. It really did pull all of the dust and whatnot out from in between the keys. It feels damp to your skin and doesn't really leave a residue, the smell is not harsh and is really barely there (not like an antiseptic or harsh chemical at all). I really like it." —BRickard

    Get it from Amazon for $6.39.

    23. A 100% natural Oven Cleaning Kit, complete with oven scrub, all-purpose cleaners, and a metallic sponge, to really get at the build-up in your enamel ovens, rack, and even the glass panel on the door — it's made in small batches, and totally safe for your family, pets, and home.

    24. 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: "This stuff really works! When I moved into my house, the caulk around the bathtub was stained. It was really dark, almost black in some spots. I tried multiple cleaners and none of them made a noticeable difference. I bought this after reading reviews. I put the gel on at night. It's very easy to apply, just squeeze it on. I let it sit overnight. The next morning I checked on it and my caulk was completely white! It looks great. I just rinsed it off and was done. So easy I wish I would've tried this product a long time ago. I highly recommend." —Lori

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    25. A miraculous little bottle of Quick N Brite Fireplace Cleaner designed to clean away soot, smoke, creosote, and ash from nearly any fireplace — brick, stone, tile, rock. You name it!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Unbelievable! My daughter just moved into her first home. She thought she would have to paint her brick fireplace because of the heavy soot stains that had been there for years. We applied the product twice and put in a whole lot of elbow grease, but what a difference! It’s a messy process, but well worth the time and energy." —MM

    Get it from Amazon for $17.02.

    26. A reusable ChomChom Roller Dog Hair Remover that'll seriously get rid of that unintentional fur seating/coat/carpet with just a few rolls. And before you ask, it doesn't use sticky tape! It's made using a sturdy brush system.

    A customer review photo of their car mat covered in dog hair except for one area where they used the roller
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a corgi. My corgi likes the dog park. Unfortunately, this means I need to transport my corgi to the dog park, which means that at any given point I have almost enough hair in my back seat to make a whole new dog. Car wash vacuums can’t get it, even my handheld vacuum with a brush attachment has trouble doing more than getting the loose hairballs, leaving the hairs that are tangled in the matting. Enter the Chom Chom. I cannot recommend this thing enough. To show you guys how effective it is, the picture with this review is a couple of months' worth of corgi car trips. I didn’t pre-vacuum, just rolled the Chom Chom over it a few times. The small patch I did in the photo took maybe 30 seconds total, including emptying the little hair chamber into a plastic bag I’m using for this cleanup. Seriously, this thing works better than any lint roller I’ve ever used, and won’t need to be replaced like one." —Rhys'sPieces

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    27. A bottle of Oh Yuk Jetted Tub Cleaner — it'll clean out all the gunk from your bathtub jets so that when you choose to marinate in your own juices, the pot you're doing it in is totally clean.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is amazing! I have never left a review but this stuff worked so well I thought it deserves one. I moved into a house that had a jetted tub. I cleaned it with bleach and other cleaners and it still just did not seem clean. I would fill the tub up with clean water and when I turned on the jets occasionally something black and flat would come out. I refused to use the tub and I was about to replace it. This showed up when I was searching tub cleaners and I said I would give it a try. It’s super easy to use just fill up the tub with hot water pour a little cleaner in and turn the jets on for 15 minutes. When you come back after the 15 minutes it’s up be prepared for the yuck you will see!!! It is truly an awesome product." —Alexis

I clean everything from condo rentals to long-term lease/residential rentals and I have had to clean unimaginable NASTY, I mean 'pics or it didn't happen' kind of nasty, and these cut right through it. These work just as well as the name brand, if not better, and they seem to last a little longer!" —Keisha Marie

    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!!

    Promising review: "We have ridiculously hard water. The Culligan guy who tested it was surprised it doesn’t come out of the faucet as a solid. My dishes, especially my Pyrex bowls and casserole dishes were almost white from the buildup. Nothing ever seemed clean. I tried this, and it’s an absolute miracle. My dishes are clean again. See the comparison in the picture — bowl on the left is 'clean', it was washed without the Finish booster. The bowl on the right was washed with.

    Promising review: "I have kids (8 and 3 years old). They have destroyed my back seat. Spilled chocolate milk, vomit, melted chocolate, dropped fries, dropped ice cream, spilled Gatorade — you name it, it has been spilled in my back seat. I was to the point of accepting my backseat would forever be a disgusting wasteland. Then I stumbled upon this product and y'all...Y'ALL IT WORKS! I almost cried when I sprayed it on, ran a detail brush over it, wiped it away with the cloth, and the stains were GONE. No scrubbing for 30 minutes. No 'leave to set for 15 minutes'. No carpet cleaner required. Just spray, scrub, wipe, and it takes everything off. I am now cleaning EVERYTHING with this stuff. It is AMAZING! An absolute MUST for any parent. 100% will buy again." —Rachel

    36. A heavy-duty rust stain remover so you can see what color your shower actually is — hint, it's not an orangey-brown.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The photos speak for themselves. When we bought our home there was no water softener and years of iron buildup. We tried so many things on our shower. Nothing worked. We were convinced we’d be stuck until we renovated the bathroom. But this worked wonders. I still can’t believe it. We had to let it sit for about an hour, then it dissolved and wiped right off. Definitely use in a ventilated area if possible." —M. Gilardi

Did it myself — a section at a time, but did a large home in two days and the results were amazing. I consider myself a 'clean' person, vacuuming and mopping several times a week.

    Promising review: "I have a 'Man's Shower' in the basement that only I use. After a long time of tender loving neglect, it wasn't pretty to look at. But by the second application of this stuff, I could see thru the glass door and the shower walls looked slick and clean. The nozzle snaps neatly onto the handle, making things compact and neat. One thing I hate most in life is standing, dripping wet, and bare-assed naked, swabbing down the shower walls. As long as I keep this stuff handy, those days are gone forever." —Harley47

    Get it from Amazon for $16.89.

    40. A restorative Howard Products Wood Polish & Conditioner that uses beeswax to help give luster to any wood surface — floors, tables, legs...whatever! If you're looking to bring new life to your worn floors you might want to try this before calling on some professionals.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    This product does take a lot of elbow grease but considering the alternative would be replacing your floors or paying the big bucks to have a professional do it — that doesn't seem so bad.

    Promising review: "Used this on 30-year-old wooden kitchen cabinets. These cabinets have not been regularly oiled and cleaned with wood cleaner and the ones beneath the sink suffer from the inevitable water damage associated with that location. In an effort to spruce them up a bit without resorting to the expense of new cabinets, I thought to try this product because of all the rave reviews as well as convincing photos. Initially, when you put the product on, it looks significantly better. I was skeptical about how it would look after I wiped it off. When I did, however, there was very little to remove. The wood must’ve been extremely dry because it did absorb quite a bit. I slopped a lot on there too. The resulting finish looked richer and deeper than before. It’s already substantially improved the look and the worn areas are no longer noticeable. It’s clearly worth considering if you have an older wooden piece with a finish you’d like to quickly and easily improve yourself or if you have a similar situation with your cabinets." —Shopper X

    Promising review: "These are SO cool!! So many uses! Today, I tried them in the shower washing my face and back. OMG!!! I cannot describe the WONDERFUL sensation! They’re great for lint removal from furniture and probably clothes. The cat LOVES them!! She has not liked any brush EVER, but boy does she like being petted and groomed with these. Great for showers, glass, and tubs. Good for rubbing stain remover into laundry. There is nothing I don’t love about them. Have had them for 14 months.

    Promising review: "I don't often write a review of a product. But this was so impressive, I thought I should let others know. We have a set of vinyl outdoor chairs that were constantly covered with mildew. When we were feeling ambitious, we'd take the time to power wash the chairs, which worked pretty well but was a lot of work. The problem was that a couple of days later, the mildew was back almost as bad a before. With this mildew stain remover, we sprayed the chairs, let them sit a few minutes, and hosed off with a regular garden hose. Easy. And they were cleaner than they ever got using the power washer. When we put the chairs away two months later, they were still clean." —Christine A. Simonson

    Promising review: "What they say is sooooooo true. I hate hate hate streaky windows. These towels leave NO streaks. Windows looked like there was no glass in them. Cleaned my black stove. Again no streaks. My stainless steel sparkles. I took one in the shower with me and wiped down the walls and tub. Oh, and I have a beige suede-like couch that my hubby leaves blackness on. Rubbed a damp towel on it and GONE. Even the furniture shampoo hadn't worked. These deserve 100 stars." —Bernie Wilbanks
