    25 Things For Anyone Who's Lazy But Also Wants A Clean House

    Elbow grease is overrated, having a clean place is not.

    Hey! While we try to keep our posts updated as much as we can, this post is actually from 2017, so we can't guarantee that the pricing and/or availability of the products featured are accurate. For our most up-to-date recommendations, check out the 2018 version of this post!

    1. A pack of washing machine-cleaning tablets because we know you're not going to get down on your hands and knees and actually clean out the drum yourself. And why would you with these resources?!

    2. A pack of foaming garbage disposer tablets so your biggest kitchen helper can keep running on 100 instead of ruining your day.

    3. An angry mama who'll loosen up the grime from your microwave surfaces so it'll look like you don't actually eat microwave popcorn for dinner three times a week.

    4. A (basically) underground stain remover to make you feel like Rocky on those steps after you successfully get blood and grass stains out of your kid's soccer jersey.

    5. A bundle of Clorox Wipes because if you ever run out of uses for them around the house, I'll pay you a million dollars.

    6. A container of silver-polishing wipes you can use on your heirloom pieces without suffering a scrubbing-induced elbow injury.

    7. Or an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner for restoring essentials like your wedding band and smudge-y glasses back to their former glory in mere minutes.

    8. A headlight-restoration kit that'll take less time to wipe away grime than it'd take to drive to the dealership for the same ~pricier~ service.

    9. An ~all-natural~ stain stick which merely requires hot water and a little rubbing to pre-treat the nastiest of stains.

    10. A hand vac as man's *other* best friend for cleaning up kitty litter spills, hairy upholstery, and all other manners of animalistic messes.

    11. A bottle of Tilex Mold and Mildew Remover — it can work its magic on gross grout stains while you kick back and catch up on your stories.

    12. A 3-in-1 microfiber duster for getting at lofty spaces like ceiling fan blades and the tops of bookcases without a foot stool.

    13. A three-pack of Resolve pet stain remover so you can erase the house training stain from your ~stylish~ over-dyed area rug without ruining the pattern.

    14. A box of Magic Erasers because when you *do* have to scrub away at a variety of stains, this'll handle most of the elbow grease.

    15. A Scrub Daddy sponge you may recognize from Shark Tank and then fall in love with because the lil' guy basically spoons your dirty kitchen tools clean.

    16. A duo of toilet cleaners with goose necks for minimal-effort reaching and hydrogen peroxide for serious bowl-whitening power.

    17. Or a click-and-go gel to completely (or at least, nearly) eliminate the need for a toilet brush.

    18. A silicone sink strainer — it can make ridding it of tiny food particles easy as pie so you aren't awkwardly standing over your trash can raking them out of your OG metal strainer like a maniac.

    19. Or a TubShroom that people (including this writer) are obsessed with and will steal your heart after snaking your drain becomes a thing of the past.

    20. A four-pack of gas range covers for easily and *safely* cleaning off cooking crumbs on the reg.

    21. And some matching non-stick oven liners to clean up spills without *actually* having to clean your oven.

    22. A bottle-cleaning set even the laziest of dishwashers will use because deep-down you know that your water bottle will start growing its own mold colony any day now if you do the half-second rinse again.

    23. A bottle of Goo Gone to annihilate residue from tape, crayon, stickers, and more. Aka, no more ruining your nails by scraping off stickers.

    24. A robot vacuum for doing almost everything except whistling while it works. (That would just be creepy.)

    25. And a bottle of your OG friend Dawn so you can *gently* de-grime all your hand-wash dishes in baby ducks' fave bubble bath. Yep, even if you misplaced your dishwashing gloves.
