    29 Tiny Cleaning Products That Pack A Big Punch

    It's not the size of the ocean, people — it's the motion of the ocean.

Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A sturdy pumice cleaning stone to help you fight the war between calcium, lime, hard water stains, and your toilet.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Awesome for cleaning toilets!! Buy this now if you have hard-water stains!! We tried everything on toilets when we bought a house and were about to replace them until we tried this. They look almost new now!! Def prefer the ones with a handle, especially when using on toilets! The before-and-after picture is after like maybe three to five minutes of lightly scraping!" —CristaCross

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    2. A grout pen that'll help you cover up the years and years of damage you've let fall through the cracks and stain your grout.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "The white is a true bright white without any ivory or yellow. Do not count on this matching your existing grout. You will not be able to just touch up a few areas. Just plan on doing the entire room. As to usage, 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. The shower floor has small hex tile with larger grout lines so that took a little over two pens. Some tips: shake very well when first taking out of the package and any time you start working again after a pause. Depress the tip several times on to a paper plate or directly onto the grout line to get the paint flowing. Press very lightly when going over the grout. The tips lasted almost all the way to the end of my project. If the coverage starts to thin, pause and depress the tip a few more times. I would do about a 1x1 foot area, then pass over it lightly with a damp paper towel to get any overage off the tile. It is pretty forgiving and you have quite a bit of working time before it dries completely on the tile. If the tip gets too ragged you can pull it out (I used the damp paper towel) and flip it around. 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 white, terracotta, and cream).

    3. A jar of Wright's Silver Cleaner and Polish Cream for help cleaning up your tarnished silver pieces — including your jewelry.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have been using this cleaner for a very long time. I have several silver products and I do like them to look clean and shiny. A little bit goes a long way. Each time I clean a product, it seems that it takes longer before the product tarnishes again. I know there are other natural products that clean silver (such as white toothpaste) but really you need a lot of toothpaste to clean a small piece. I think this silver cleaner does its job well." —Lovetoshoponline

    Get it from Amazon for $3.99.

    4. A pack of Tide To Go pens to have in your purse, on your desk, and in your car, because let's be real: You need these little bad boys everywhere you go.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I keep one in my bookbag at all times and one at my desk. They've saved me countless times. Works on coffee, blood, oil, food, wine... (for things like blood the color doesn't go away completely, but after you wash it the stain is gone). Recommend using it immediately after you get the stain." —Allison Chang

    Get it from Amazon for $4.45.

    5. A stainless steel chainmail scrubber that'll get your pots and pans so damn clean you'll be able to eat off them (just not your non-stick ones).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I’ve always used steel wool to clean my stainless steel pots and pans. I actually happened across this product while looking for something else and decided to give it a try. I was stunned at how well and how FAST it gets the job done. The pictures I provided are proof enough. The first one is stuck on remnants of dinner, I intentionally did not use oil to get the food to stick as much as possible. The second pic is 60 seconds of scrubbing with a couple of drops of Dawn and the chainmail scrubber. This is seriously one of the best products that I’ve just happened to come across in a very long time. If you cook with stainless steel this little guy is a must!" —Dickers

    Get it from Amazon for $11.04.

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

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This little Flexisnake is magical!! After using bottles and bottles of Drano to try to unclog my bathroom sink, I found this little guy! Look at the hair and gunk?!?!?! Just ordered more of these babies!!!" —Sabrina

    Get it from Amazon for $5.28.

    7. A pack of Glisten Disposer Care Foaming Cleaner that'll work by bubbling up to reach deep into your disposal and pipes, tackling any build-up that's accumulating down there — that's what she said.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "It seems counterintuitive to put a little packet down your garbage disposal to clean it, but this does actually seem to work, at least for getting out weird smells that baking soda and vinegar don't really touch. I scrub the sink down first, especially around the garbage disposal area, rinse it down, and then just follow the directions on the package. I have used it with single, large-size sinks and with double sinks — the only difference is that the double sink will have blue cleaning foam rise up the drain, which you rinse away when the disposal sounds clear again." —KS

    Get a four use pack from Amazon for $7.18.

    8. And while you're at it, a pack of Glisten Disposer Care freshener — tiny beads with a fresh lemon scent that'll help rid your garbage disposal of all the grossness that normally builds up in there.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Works very well to get rid of foul odors in my disposal and very simple to use. Just run hot water slowly, drop one tab in, turn on disposal for 15 seconds, and voila! A clean citrus smell out of the disposal. I will be a repeat buyer of this. Worth the cost for the benefit provided. I hated my odorous garbage disposal and trying to identify where the stink was coming from in my kitchen. Problem solved." —Old Coast Customer

    Get a 10-pack from Amazon for $4.09.

    9. A pack of Bottle Bright for an all-natural, biodegradable, odor-free way to clean your water bottle.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Finished using it five minutes ago and it’s the best! My husband uses a Stanley thermos daily to take coffee to work. He tries to remember to rinse it out every day, but that doesn’t always happen. I got the package today, filled the thermos with water, dropped in a tablet, and let it sit. I promptly forgot about it for a few hours. Initially, I was disappointed when I dumped the water, as it was barely tinged brown. Then I put fresh water in, covered the top, shook it, and OMG. The crap that came out was disgusting, yet fascinating. I looked in the thermos and saw almost nothing but sparkly silver! There was a little crud left in the top third of the thermos, but it’s a really tall one, so I wasn’t surprised. Got the bottle brush, swished twice, and bam! All clean! No fumes, no smell, no nothing, just clean. I used to struggle cleaning it with baking soda, vinegar, the brush, soap, and elbow grease. Screw that. I will forever use only these tablets! Here’s to better tasting (and way less gross) coffee!" —BranchingOut

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $8.

    10. A pack of Urnex K-Kup Cleaning Pods you can use to remove all the buildup in your favorite little coffee maker.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Very easy to use. The first cup comes out blue with suds (see photo). It smelled a little like cleanser but it's not strong and disappeared after the first rinse cycle. The directions are to rinse twice but I rinsed three times to make sure it all washed off. I'm happy with them." —CSantoya

    Get a box of five from Amazon for $7.99.

    11. A Black + Decker power scrubber capable of getting rid of the biggest messes despite its compact size.

    amazon.com

    I have this bad boy and it's a little miracle worker on cleaning up that build-up that sticks to your tub!

    Promising review: "I love the scrubber and use it mainly for cleaning the bathroom. Works great on my glass shower doors, sink, and tub. The brush attachment is also great for cleaning the grout lines between tiles and around the tub. Small size is easy to handle too." —LNR, New York

    Get it from Amazon for $12.88.

    12. A three-blade blinds cleaner with five removable microfiber sleeves so you can clean every last slot over and over again.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These blind cleaners are terrific! I've enjoyed cleaning houses and offices professionally for over 20 years and cleaning blinds is not always easy. I debated and debated what to buy, to try to make the process a bit easier. Within five minutes of using this, I was almost doing cartwheels — it really works! Best product I have ever used to clean blinds. My first time using it, I had eight different large blinds to clean, with skinny slats to boot, and this duster brush with refills DID THE JOB BEAUTIFULLY. I have gone from dreading cleaning blinds to actually enjoying the process. I could not be happier." —T.R.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    13. Speaking of cleaning those things you always forget to clean: a Diamond Dazzle Stick to help polish your precious jewels and make them shine bright like...well, like a diamond.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Don't get me wrong, my wedding ring was gorgeous before. It did sparkle and still made me smile every day. However, after using this Diamond Dazzle Stik, oh my goodness! After one use my ring is absolutely breathtaking! I knew my ring got dirty now and then, simply from sweating and being outside in the elements. However, I never realized just how much dinge and schmutz marred my beautiful diamond until I cleaned it — it literally took my breath away with its fiery, dazzling brilliance! This thing is an amazing value with mind-blowing, beautiful results!" —liltreeclimber

    Get it from Amazon for $7.74.

    14. A handheld groove brush small enough to get into those hard-to-reach crevices and get out all the gunk!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is just what I needed. I was cleaning windows and the tracks were very dirty. As we all know dust and dirt can get in anywhere. I had something like this in mind but didn't even know if anyone made them. Imagine how surprised and happy I was to find these. The handle angle is perfect and allows the brush to get completely in the track and get the dirt out." —coffeelover

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in three colors).

    15. An OXO Deep Clean Brush Set with durable bristles to reach those tiny-ass crevices you usually ignore because they're too hard to get.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I HIGHLY recommend these brushes for grout. If you are on the fence of 'Ehhh do I NEED a grout brush? I could just scrub the floor...' Stop. Get these brushes. They are stiff and cut down the elbow grease time incredibly. Plus you can use them on anything. Pictures are the difference from when I cleaned the bathroom floor vs. the hallway." —Jennifer

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in red and blue).

    16. A pack of non-abrasive cooktop scrubbing pads to help you get out all those caked-on messes that always make your kitchen counter look a mess.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are a MUST. Sure, I can use the spray to get the grease up with no streaking. And I can use the polishing cream too. But THIS is when I have something a bit tougher to get off and I want to keep that stovetop free of scratches! I keep this right next to my sponge. And this little red thing is NEVER used for anything except my stovetop. No cheating out there! :-) Make this a dedicated stovetop pad." —Tsu Nami

    Get it from Amazon for $2.99.

    17. A pack of Affresh Washer Cleaners, which are small pods you throw in your washing machine to have it sparkling like new.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have been using bleach to clean my machine for some time, but decided to give this a try a few months ago. My very first clean left me surprised and delighted, for not only did it clean my machine, it eliminated the nasty smell that always transferred to my clothes thanks to a buildup of mold I didn't even know about. Every month now, I toss a tablet into the drum and let it work its magic. Now my machine is cleaner than ever, and my clothes always smell wonderfully fresh. I highly recommend this to everyone." —Kelli Crawford

    Get a pack of five tablets from Amazon for $9.98. And if you're having the same issue with your dishwasher, check out their powerful cleaning tablets.

    18. A mini microfiber eyeglass cleaner — imagine a world that isn't covered in smudges, just imagine it!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Are you kidding me? I swore when I bought these they would be garbage for the price but now I am stunned. They are amazing, at least so far. At this price, hell even if they get saturated in two weeks, you get five and then you can buy more. Stop me if this sounds familiar, you somehow get oil on your glasses, how, you don't know, but it seems like it flicks off your eyelashes. You try your shirt, but it smears — same with a tissue. You use this microfiber cloth, but still, there are smudges here and there. I got these in the mail and pulled one off the packaging. I have used it three times tonight. Every time, spick and span and crystal clear. These are wonderful so far." —Marcadimus

    Get a pack of five from Amazon for $6.40.

    19. A pack of flexible straw cleaning brushes, because you're awesome for jumping on the reusable straw movement but you just need to make sure to clean them up.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Great set of brushes! I'm still using the first brush out of the bag and it's been a few weeks. The brush still holds up. Bristles are stiff and do the job. Well-designed. The length is long enough to get through most straws. Easy to use. No rusting so far. One thing that is great about this set is that it's just straw brushes! I've found it difficult to find straw brushes that don't include other brushes that I don't need (bottle nipple brushes, valve brushes, etc). I will definitely buy again once we go through all the brushes though it may be a while." —Sarah Aquino

    Get a set if eight cleaners (in two sizes) from Amazon for $4.99.

    20. A mold-and-mildew stain-removing gel so you can get into the tightest of corners and tackle the toughest of messes and achieve some very serious results.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is great! The only thing I've tried that actually works. Ajax with bleach didn’t even work for me. I left it on for seven hours and then rinsed it off." —Louisiv4

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    21. A pair of durable plastic scrapers capable of tearing down the grime on your cast iron pan without ever compromising the hard work you do to get it seasoned just right.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had originally given the scrapers a mediocre three-star review. After using them a few times I have decided to change my review from three stars all the way up to five stars. After trying a few other things to clean my cast iron Lodge pan I have found that if I hold these scrapers with a sponge, it gives me a much better grip and stops the plastic edge from pushing into my fingers. I guess it would be hard to make the scrapers with a rougher surface, which while maybe easier to hold would still do nothing for the amount of force against your fingers required to push these scrapers across a dirty cast-iron pan. Other than designing these much larger with a handle to hold them firmly, they are difficult to hold and scrape a pan with firmly attached food particles. So, grab a sponge, place this handy little tool inside of a folded sponge with the edge sticking out and it becomes a very simple and effective way to scrape a cast-iron pan without damaging the seasoning." —BR

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $2.99.

    22. An adorable mini desktop vacuum that'll keep your desk crumb-free!! Yes ladies and gentlemen, you too can have a desk with no evidence of your constant snacking.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love how convenient it is! Makes my life just a little bit easier and allows me to be just a little bit lazier. Also, it's pretty darn cute so it doesn't stand out or look awkward sitting on my nightstand next to my bed. I am (currently) one of those sad, single ladies that likes to munch in bed while binge-watching the latest show I have discovered. I have black sheets so the crumbs and other random bits that get into the bed stick out like a sore thumb. This little ladybug helps it seem like I have my ish together and don't eat every meal in bed." —Natasha

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in two colors). And don't forget the AA batteries.

    23. A bristly little non-slip brush for a super easy (and safe) way to scrub down your knives.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a compact version of the professional knife washing mats used in the foodservice industry. I really like it, it gets the job done while protecting your hands. However, it is a very different type of dish brush and it does take some time to get used to it and figure out which side of the brush to apply pressure on as you wash knives." —HP

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available green and gray).

    24. A reusable rolling screen cleaner to help keep your phone, tablet, and laptops completely smudge- and fingerprint-free.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This actually works! It is surprisingly quick and easy to use. I feel like it's going to last for a long time. You can also fit this right into your pocket and after a few rolls, the job's done!" —C. L. Clancy

    Get it from Amazon for $17.26.

    25. A silicone makeup brush cleaner that fits perfectly on two fingers — making it a breeze to hold while you scrub away all that blush and eyeshadow that's caked into your favorite beauty tools.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This little makeup scrubber works perfectly! It does just what I wanted. The different textures are nice for really getting those brushes clean, especially with stubborn eyeshadows. I actually like that it just goes on two little fingers; it makes the size convenient." —Sara Tafuri

    Get it from Amazon for $2.41+ (available in purple, white, black, and yellow).

    26. An OXO electronics cleaning brush specially designed with soft bristles that can gently clean all your favorite devices.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a must-have product for cleaning electronics. It is versatile enough to work in many different applications. It is gentle enough to avoid cosmetically damaging delicate electronics that other brushes can easily scratch. And it is precise enough to work well in applications where one needs a tool of precision that is capable of reaching difficult or small areas. With an excellent design, useful features, great ergos, and a reasonable price, I highly recommend this brush." —ZapNZs

    Get it from Amazon for $4.95.

    27. A Scrubbing Bubbles toilet cleaning gel — you just use the handy little stamp to attach some tough-on-grossness gel that'll fight lime scale and toiler rings with every flush.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Quick and easy way to keep your toilet bowl fresh. Way better than the plastic hanging clip I would need to remove once fully used or in tank tabs that I've heard are bad for toilets. I did notice the fragrance was lower than normal, but the cleaning power seemed to be intact." —Isaac Montemayor

    Get it from Amazon for $6.35.

    28. A Clorox dual-tip bleach pen for a way to deal with those disgusting stains that ruin your whites, no matter where you are.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I use this for my all white Converse All-Stars and it does a perfect job cleaning up major stains — like spilled coffee." —Nerissa Turner

    Get it from Amazon for $4.68.

    29. And a handy little brush and dustpan set perfect for cleaning up all those countertop crumbies, even if they make their way down to the floor.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This little guy is efficient and compact. Good for small pickups. Overall, really cute and works well." —Marie Sheril

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.
