    48 Things That'll Help Lazy People Be Way Cleaner In 2021

    Turns out that sparkling toilet bowls, like-new Thermos innards, and a carpet that's more carpet than pet hair are attainable for mere mortals.

    1. Water bottle-cleaning tablets to make sure everyone's go-to container actually gets cleaned. How many drink containers have bit the dust because they LOOKED dirty but were just stained? I'll let you do the math.

    Promising review: "I wasn't sure if this was a gimmick or not. Turns out it works really well. I have four metal thermos-like containers that are used to keep tea warm every day. Over time, the tea stained the insides and was very difficult to remove. I added one of these tablets to the container, filled it with hot water, and let it sit for a few hours. When I came back to rinse it out, I was literally amazed at how clean it was. I think it looked cleaner than when they were new. I called my wife over to show her, and she was equally impressed. Awesome product!" —Robert A Moreno II

    2. A powerful dish-washing spray that, honestly, if you buy anything from this list, this should be it. You can spray down that casserole dish caked with enchilada sauce, let it sit, and you simply wipe and rinse away that saucy mess in a few minutes.

    Target

    I live in an apartment without a dishwasher, and I honestly use that as an excuse to order takeout food instead of cooking. But, as soon as I got my hands on a bottle of this stuff (regular Dawn is my go-to dish soap, BTW), I put it to use on both a saucepan I used to make homemade enchilada sauce *and* the casserole dish I baked those enchiladas, which had a ton of caked-on food. It really does work like I say it does! Like, scary well.

    Get it from Target for $6.09 (also available in an apple scent).

    3. And if you really wanna get in there: bottle brushes — they'll be a blessing for the laziest of dishwashers.

    Amazon

    Includes a long bottle brush, straw brush, and detail cleaner.

    Promising review: "Are you lazy? Do you ruin water bottles with your lackadaisical approach to cleaning? Black specks in your water bottle making your water taste funky? These are the brushes you are looking for. It's so easy to clean my water bottles with these specific shaped brushes. I can get in there, scrub away the filth, get every corner, and the bottle will be like new." —M. Burkey

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99.

    4. Foaming garbage disposer tablets to bring up all the gunk so you don't have to. It's gonna get GROSS but you can get through it to the much cleaner side.

    Amazon

    Freshens and leaves disposer, sink, and kitchen smelling clean. Made with natural ingredients, and safe for drain, disposer, and septic. Use weekly to maintain a smooth running disposer, prevent build-up and odors, and extend the life of the disposer.

    Promising review: "It actually worked! So my kitchen started smelling a bit and I figured it was my garbage disposal, so I bought this and it was so easy to use. You just drop a packet inside the disposal, turn on your sink with a little bit of hot water and turn on your disposal, and after a couple of minutes it should be clean. I figured it was my disposal because my kitchen doesn't have that funky smell anymore." —Max Power

    Get a four-use pack from Amazon for $6.07.

    5. Phonesoap, a gadget you've seen on Shark Tank that'll charge your phone *and* sanitize it at the same time. It also works for any item you can fit inside, like reading glasses!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "What a perfect gadget for getting your phone clean. After touching who knows what while commuting to work and it being that time of year everyone around you gets sick this comes in handy. After the first use it looked great and then I wiped it down with the sponge that came with. I feel so much better about using my phone now." —Crystal Gardener

    Get it from Amazon for $79.95 (available in four colors).

    6. Or a ultrasonic jewelry cleaner to scrub away dirt and debris from a cloudy wedding band or smudged glasses with *just* the power of water while you're doing more important things like standing at your kitchen sink eating a bag of chips. (Somebody's gotta do it!)

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Gently removes dirt, dust, and grime from jewelry, eyeglasses, and watches in five preset cleaning cycles without damaging them.

    Promising review: "I just used this and I am IN LOVE!! I paired it with the Blitz jewelry cleaner. My rings were gross from lotion, sunscreen, hand soap, sweat etc. I don't have time to run to my jeweler to get them professionally cleaned. This does the trick, and same exact results! In 3 minutes 💕" —Rebecca Morea

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    7. And a cleaning pen that'll *gently* revive the look of your jewels that you DIDN'T EVEN REALIZE have grown cloudy over time. Don't worry, it's made with micro-fine cleansers, polishing agents, and a polymer for a pro-level shine at the price of your morning coffee order.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I worked several years in a fine jewelry store that sold this product. We used the Dazzle Stick from time to time to add a quick shine to merchandise that was just tried on and on days our jeweler was not there to professionally clean items. I was always impressed with the instant shine the diamond stick provided. The brush tip is very helpful for getting under the stones and in the setting where gunk builds up reducing that brilliant shine. I recently got engaged and immediately purchased a Diamond Dazzle stick of my own. It's the perfect way to quickly give my ring some shine before leaving the house. You simply brush, rinse, dry and go. I don't feel this product replaces the need to professionally clean your jewelry every now and then, but it does help with the maintenance of that new shiny sparkle." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    8. A holy grail soft cleanser to help you *easily* erase all those gray and rusty stains on household surfaces you came to term with years ago. They aren't paying rent, so give 'em the boot!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    FYI, this is the pre-mixed version (which saves you a bit of time). But you can also try the original powder version. To understand just *how* versatile this product is, check out our review of Bar Keepers Friend and prepare to be amazed!

    Promising review: "I’m now a permanent customer. I’ve used CLR, Clorox bowl cleaners, and others but this is my favorite. I used a small broom to clean my tubs and tile (as I usually do) even though instructions said to use a sponge; it dried my hands pretty bad (please use gloves). So I used the broom instead and it worked pretty well. I would recommend. I even tried it on my stove and it worked like a charm." —Itzel A.

    Get a 13 oz. bottles from Amazon for $12.89.

    9. A nine-pack of nonscratch Scotch-Brite sponges – they'll make serious work on your nonstick pans with coating you don't wanna compromise. Stuck-on messes, be gone!

    amazon.com

    Promising reviews: "This is pretty much all I use with dishes. I find that this sponge is usually the perfect gentleness/roughness for washing dishes by hand. It's always an exciting day when I can pull out a new sponge from the Scotch-Brite sponge bag and throw away the old one. It would be nice to have a dishwasher, but these sponges are less expensive and more fun!" —MAW

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    10. A jetted tub cleaner that'll make you gag with delight once you run it through your system and all the pipe filth emerges like some Ghostbusters sludge. Oh, and it's septic-safe.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "Ok, so I am some what of a clean freak and I run bleach through the jets prob twice a month on top of my daily weekly cleaning. And I was skeptical how this product could get it any cleaner than I thought it was. Well I am here to tell you this pic is after the second cleaning with this cleaner!!!! I am a believer and would highly recommend this product to anyone with jetted tub!!" —Momof2greatboys

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    11. And washing machine-cleaning tablets so you won't have to rewash a load because of cleaning product buildup. We've all been there and it's quite the hassle.

    model putting a cleaning tablet into a top-load washing machine
    Amazon

    Designed to penetrate, dissolve, and remove odor-causing residue. Tablet dissolves slowly, lasting throughout the entire wash cycle and breaking up residue better than bleach. Safe to use with front-load washing machines, top- load washing machines, high efficiency (HE), and conventional washers. Recommended for monthly use.

    Promising review: "This is really the only HE washer cleaner I buy. It leaves my washer with that fresh smell — not that it stinks — and clean after each use. How do I know it's clean? I could see some the residual gunk on the inner wall of the washer drum when the cleaning is done. I just have to wipe it off of course. Using other brands I can't even tell if the appliance has really been cleaned or not." —AES

    Get a five-pack from Amazon for $9.98.

    12. A rust-removing spray to work like a magic trick in neglected showers, minus the elbow grease. Spray it on a rusted surround, leave the room, and come back to diminished stains you can easily wipe away.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Seeing is believing. I posted before and after pictures of our bathtub. It was gross and orange rust stained. Not even Mr. Clean Magic Erasers touched the rust stains. But now it's shiny and looks brand new. I sprayed it on (yes, it's more of a liquid than a gel but it still works). I came back an hour later and wiped it off. No elbow grease needed. Majority of the rust was gone, only thing left was soap scum and that easily wiped away. I'll be buying this stuff again!" —NMP

    Get it from Amazon for $4.79.

    13. A Scrub Daddy sponge you've def also seen on Shark Tank and then fall in love with because it can go from gentle cleansing in warm water to serious scrubbing power in cool water.

    Amazon

    Get you a sponge who can do both, specifically this one.

    Promising review: "I don't have a dishwasher and have used so many products full of promise. THIS however, cleans better than anything I've ever used. Goes from scrubbing glass to pans with ease. Gets to the grease, lipstick, baked-on junk, all of it, and so easy, no elbow grease required. Does not scratch and rinses clean without much effort. I'm a customer for life!" —Denice

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $9.99.

    14. And 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.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is one of the best dishwashing soap, that I've used in a long time! Great for soaking dishes and removing grease! Soft and gentle on hands, great suds and easy to use! Love the package size for the price!" —Crystal Ankenman

    Get three bottles and two sponges from Amazon for $15.22.

    15. An affordable hand vac that'll make cleaning up discarded fluff from your furniture NBD. Seriously, walking around like an animal fur hedgehog out of laziness is no way to live.

    Amazon

    Has multi-layer filtration and a 16' power cord. Includes two specially designed nozzles for pulling out dirt on surfaces like stairs, upholstery, and automobiles.

    Promising review: "Normally I don't take the time to review things, I forget or I'm just lazy. I have a German shepherd who sheds badly, despite giving her pills to help with shedding and brushing her weekly. I love my dog but I hate how much hair there is everywhere and a traditional vacuum can only do so much. I absolutely love the power this vacuum has. It actually gets most of the hair up. It can get a little heavy if you're using it for a long period of time. I mostly use it to get hair off my comforter and off my furniture. It works on practically anything. For the price you honestly can't beat this. If you're looking for something to cut down on the amount of hair in your home on furniture, rugs, bed sheets, etc, then this is honestly worth it." —Janice Kellogg

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99.

    16. And a rubber squeegee broom (with a telescoping pole) to get DEEP down into the pile of your carpet to unearth pet fur. TBH, this sounds like work but once you get a couple of passes in and it starts to unearth all the fluff you're going to go IN on it for some super satisfying results like this.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We got a mature golden retriever last year and were told he didn't shed. Then in the spring he started shedding badly. I found this product on a whim one day and ordered it. It was tough at first. The bristles pulled the hair up but then caught the tufts and spread them around. I found that using short, quick strokes with the rake turned upside down got the best results. The backside is more like a squeegee and helps pull the hair up in long rolls and keeps the hair in one big pile." —Nick V.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98.

    17. AND a scratchy lil' tool that'll FINALLY get all the pet hair off your fabric surfaces both inside your house and car. You'll wonder how you lived without up until now.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This this is like magic. Our van was nasty and covered with hair from a German and Australian Shepherd. Looked brand new after. Don’t think about just buy it. It will blow your mind." —Dan

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    18. A drill brush cleaning kit you can attach to your drill/driver for an informercial-like cleaning sesh that'll have you seeking out all the dirty surfaces you've been ignoring. This'll handle all the elbow grease.

    amazon.com

    Includes three brushes that'll attached to a standard handheld drill.

    Promising review: "I’m in love with this. I manage many apartment properties and finding people to do the cleaning has been tricky business, so I end up having to get in and clean these horrendous filth pods tenants lived in and left me to deal with when they move out. The ovens and stove tops are usually the worst, and I absolutely hate cleaning. I came across this drill attachment set, and let me tell you, it helped me tremendously! I still had to get in with a putty knife on some of them but it really cut down my elbow-grease time. If it wasn’t for this drill attachment, I think my arms would have just fallen off trying to clean it as good as I did! My only con would be that it doesn’t have any extension of any sort, so I really had my drill all up in that oven, but well worth it." —alicia haats

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in five color combos).

    19. A one-handed paper towel holder — it could make cleaning up spills way less daunting. It's kinda like a magic trick?!

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in three finishes).

    20. A robotic vacuum that'll hook up to Alexa for voice control. You may turn into a controlling but incredibly clean monster. But there are worse things!

    the circular robot vacuum on a tile floor
    Amazon

    Promising review: "It works well. This is our first Roomba so we weren’t sure at first but it’s worked out really well. We did have to run it a couple times for it to work as advertised. On first run it freaked a bit at a ledge but after third run it began handling ledges correctly. We are considering buying a second one for another part of our house..... yep, we are THAT lazy." —J. Giles

    Get it from Amazon with an Echo Dot for $472.77.

    21. A bidet toilet attachment to help you cut down on your toilet paper budget after awhile while getting you squeaky clean. You'll discover why they're alllll about these in certain parts of Europe ;)

    Amazon

    Um not to be gross, but you don't want to stand up and then realize you aren't *fully* clean. We tested this out as the high-end pick for the best toilet paper on BuzzFeed Reviews because, tbh, no one should be spending tons and tons of cash on disposable paper you use to clean yourself.

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99 (available in blue or white).

    22. A can of color-changing Kaboom! Foam-tastic that'll feel like a magic trick and leave behind a light citrusy scent. Maybe this is how kids get fully on board with cleaning the bathroom without dragging their feet?

    youtube.com

    Promising review: "I have used this product awhile now. Cleans great loosens grim and dirt fast. Great for sinks, toilets and tubs. Great value for the money." —Eugene K. Babineaux

    Get it from Amazon for $3.73.

    23. A pack of all-natural toilet-cleaning bars (with the very funny name "Reporting for Doodie") you simply drop into the toilet bowl, wait for it to dissolve, then just give a lil' scrub with your toilet brush.

    the blue toilet drops
    Truman's

    I've tried these beauts on my own toilet! (It's true, the name totally got me!) It's not like I'm really terrible at cleaning my toilet, but twisting my arm in an awkward way to get to all the parts of a toilet that I want can be tricky. These fizz up enough to where I can know that what needs to get coated is getting coated, OK?! Also, it's all-natural. I'm someone who considers "all-natural" in a cleaning product as a nice benefit as long as it works as well as something with chemicals. These drops fit that criteria!

    Promising review: "I have been looking for a toilet cleaner that is natural and has less wasteful packaging to no avail....until Truman's. What is more exceptional is that my kids find it fun! So no more pushing to get their bathroom clean! Magical!" —Christine E.

    Get a 12-pack from Truman's for $19.

    24. A mold and mildew removal gel to make you feel like you're in possession of a time turner once you simply apply, let set for six hours, then wipe away.

    reviewer's before pic of shower corner with tons of mold, mildew on it, then after pic of nearly spotless shower corner
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Wow! After YEARS of elbow grease and zero results, I tried this stuff before giving up and stripping the old caulking from the top of my shower. I’m so glad that I did, too! I mean, look at these results! Granted, it was on for about eight hours instead of six because I forgot about it, but the black mold/mildew just rinsed away — no scrubbing at all! STOKED! Super easy to use, too!" —Nice marmot!

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    25. A silicone sink strainer that 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 masked killer in a movie. I bought one of these and it truly is game-changing.

    Amazon

    You know what I'm talking about.

    Promising review: "This is a super smart product. Looks great and easy to clean. I have a 1950s cast-iron sink and these are prefect. Much nicer than the mesh strainer I used to buy and lasts a great deal longer." —LolasMom

    Get it from Amazon for $8.95.

    26. 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! If you or anyone in your household has hair, you need this. TRUST.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This little wonder fits inside of the drain and you can easily remove it and pull off hair at least once a week. You'll even enjoy how grossed out seeing all that hair makes you!

    Promising review: "I was skeptical, but for a few bucks I gave it a go. I'm lazy and I live with two ladies (who are also lazy). The tub drain doesn't get addressed nearly enough. I'd usually be the one pulling nasty balls of long hair out of the drain catch just so the tub would actually drain during a shower EVERY DAY. With this bad boy, once a week and you don't even notice a slow down in the drainage." —Jason

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in six colors).

    27. A bottle of nice-smelling disinfectant spray to just maybe convince everyone you share a bathroom with to clean up a bit after themselves.

    four bottles of spray
    Pur Home

    PUR Home is a woman-owned company founded by CEO Angela Richardson (who's also the formulator and product developer) that produces natural household and skincare items made with plant-based, biodegradable, and low-toxic ingredients.

    Promising review: "This disinfectant has gotten near daily use in my home since I've purchased it. It's amazing and super versatile. I use it to disinfect frequently touched surfaces like light switches and door handles and keys, but also have added it to my cleaning routine of kitchen and bathroom surfaces, use it to prevent mold on the window frames, and and have even used it on my houseplants! The primary active ingredient, isopropyl alcohol, and rosemary essential oils are both great for treating and staving off pests like spider mites. This disinfectant spray is gentle enough for my plants and everyday surfaces, smells great, and works!" —Lindsey

    Get it from PUR Home for $8 (available in four scents).

    28. Stain-lifting pads made to tackle icky pet stains. You love 'em but you don't have to live with their stains.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Our poor older pup started having some incontinence issues and had several accidents in the house. I was really frustrated until I found these. They work amazingly well. They're small, so if the area was larger I had to use two or three, but they pulled up stains and saved the house from being smelly. I even used one on an older stain (that I'm pretty sure wasn't pet related) and it came up after leaving it on for about 24 hours. I make sure to keep a supply of these in the house at all times now." —MC

    Get a pack of 20 from Amazon for $24.99.

    29. A legit stain remover to help remove those mud stains from your kid's shirt without harmful scrubbing. (I recently rec'd this when a friend slipped in a puddle of motor oil while wearing a camel coat. It worked!!!!)

    the three bottles of cleaner
    Amazon

    Environmentally safe formula that's biodegradable, non-toxic, and chlorine- and phosphate-free. No need to scrub, just apply a drop.

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $11.99.

    30. Or an all-natural stain remover you'll feel OK about using in case you're trying to cut harsh chemicals out of your cleaning routine but still don't want to use elbow grease. (This stuff got candle soot outta my beige velvet couch about a month ago.)

    the stain removing bar with a waxy appearance
    Amazon

    Works on stains ranging from grass, salt, grease, red wine, ketchup, ink, blood, and underarm sweat with minimal effort. Can use on nylon, leather, linens, upholstery, clothing, walls, carpets, and more!

    Promising review: "This stuff is MAGIC! OxiClean Max didn’t take mud off the backside of my daughter's favorite pants. I went in search to the Amazon to see what other product I could try for her. Came across this (which I remember hearing about in my cloth diapering groups) and decided to give it a try. At this point the mud was over two weeks old, had been soaked in the other product, washed and dried. I let her know her beloved Lularoe leggings might be toast. But we tried Buncha Farmers. Got the stick wet and rubbed and rubbed (didn’t seem to be getting a whole lot out). Then I got busy and her pants didn’t get rewashed until the next day. The stain was now all crusty with the dried farmers. Magically it came out of the wash looking brand new! I’ve since tried the product on dried blood- again took it right out! I’ll be telling everyone this stuff is awesome!" —Kreed

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $9.98.

    31. A steaming microwave cleaner for harnessing the power of anger to loosen up crud and dirt inside your microwave for wipeable messes.

    Amazon

    Fill with water and vinegar to produce steam. Made of heat-resistant materials and is top rack–dishwasher safe.

    Promising review: "Makes cleaning the microwave so simple and so much less effort. When I got this, I had let the microwave get nasty. I love that the back of Angry Mama tells you how much water and how much vinegar to put. No guessing how much or having to go look for the instructions. It's always on it. Microwave times will vary, so I started around 3 mins and just adjust if stuff is still stuck. This Angry Mama works like a charm. So worth getting." —GoDawgs19

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    32. Stove counter gap covers to keep pesky crumbs within sight instead of down between your cabinets and appliances where they'll attract bugs and rodents. Woof.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    They're made of heat-resistant silicone that's also smudge-resistant so it'll look nice under the radar.

    Promising review: "They certainly do the job I got them for. I was concerned that they wouldn't be the correct length, but they're more than long enough. I will cut them to fit. Held off until I was certain of my satisfaction. The finish is matte but looks nice and wipes clean easily. The material they're made of settles into the space between counter and range easily and I don't have any trouble with them shifting positions. I'm happy with this purchase and recommend them to anyone." —STAR STRUCK

    Get a pair from Amazon for $9.95+ (available in three colors and two lengths).

    33. Cleaning goo you can use to detail stuff like vents, keyboards, remotes, the tiny works!

    person using the goo to get into a car vent
    Amazon

    You can also use it on surfaces like keyboards, speakers, screens, cameras, etc. JUST NOTE that you should use it to press to clean. Don't leave it on a surface and walk away because gravity will let it sink into grooves and make a mess.

    Promising review: "AWESOME!!! Worth every penny! Used on tons of stuff. Stayed together and did not break apart." —Heather Beech

    Get it from Amazon for $9.77.

    34. A bottle of air sanitizer (yes that's a thing) that apparently funeral directors love...and you will too, for lots of more NORMAL uses! If your house is clean but it doesn't smell clean, it won't feel clean.

    the spray can
    Amazon

    Promising review: "This product was recommended to me by a funeral director. He said he has been using it for years. I have to agree it is wonderful. Recently our daughter had a mouse die in her car. (She was away and the car sat in the summer heat in Florida for a week.) She was ready to sell the car...the smell just wouldn't go away. I told her about Ozium and she couldn't believe it! After one night the smell was gone! Another Ozium believer!" —jbf

    Get it from Amazon for $11.93.

    35. A water mark removing cloth that could also do wonders on the nail polish remover you dribbled down your nightstand two years ago that's been a running "project for next weekend" for the past two years.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Worked wonders! I spilled nail polish remover on my nightstand. This worked like magic! Just rub lightly with the cloth." —JMac

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    36. A commercial-grade cleaner for getting at soap scum and grime on notoriously hard-to-clean shower doors. It's time to stop ignoring those scummy surfaces you encounter on the reg.

    before soap scum covered shower door, then completely clear shower door
    Amazon

    Seriously, why did anyone think shower doors were a good idea?

    Promising review: "Amazing product! My kids' bathroom has a tub with a textured bottom and what seemed to be ground-in heavy soap scum. I tried everything from Tilex to baking soda and vinegar but the stains just wouldn't budge. Got my shipment of Bucko in, immediately ran upstairs and sprayed the tub down, let it sit for three minutes, grabbed a washcloth, and the stains/soap scum just wiped right off. I couldn't believe it!!!" —Ray

    Get a 32 oz. refill bottle from Amazon for $18.

    37. A container of silver-polishing wipes that may just convince you to take out those heirloom pieces you're ignoring out of fear of suffering a scrubbing-induced elbow injury.

    reviewer's pic of heavily tarnished pitcher and cups, then the same looking silver after using the wipes
    amazon.com

    Package includes 20 saturated wipes that measure at 5.5” x 7.9” each.

    Promising review: "It was so satisfying to watch the tarnish wipe right off! I'm no silver snob/don't know a lot about taking care of it, so I'm not sure if this product is the best for your high-end silver, but for me it definitely does the trick! 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 a third 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?) So this might not be the most reasonable option if you have a large amount of silver." —Lauren

    38. Non-stick oven liners to clean up spills without *actually* having to clean your oven. Who can remember to clean up melted cheese once that pizza comes out of the oven and it's time to eat? NO ONE, that's who.

    Anything that prevents your smoke detector from *rightfully* going off is a gift from heaven. It's really starting to annoy your dog.

    Promising review: "I have a non–self cleaning oven for the first time in decades. After having an apple pie spill over and spending more than an hour cleaning it up, I purchased these oven liners. What a time saver. The are easy to cut so they fit perfectly. Because I have a visible heating element, the liner goes right on the oven floor, under the heating element." —Kimberly Barnes-O'Connor

    39. And stove burner covers that'll do the same for you up top. And you can even run them through the dishwasher!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've been using the foil ones and while they do the job, they're not so nice to look at. I like that this is black so it matches the original color of the appliances, but more importantly I like that this has a larger surface area to catch the drips that the foil ones never could before. They're also trim-to-fit, so they get right up into each burner without leaving gaps where drips can burn where it's hardest to clean." —Michael

    40. Toilet cleaner with goose necks for minimal-effort reaching and serious bowl-whitening power because your loved ones DO notice when your toilet is filthy.

    Amazon

    Don't be the person with the filthy toilet bowl. Disinfects and kills 99.9% of viruses and bacteria.

    Promising review: "I've tried everything over the past 20 years from the 'horse pills' you drop in the tank to Comet powder for keeping the bowls clean. The Lysol cleaner is the best I've found so far. Had some stubborn stains that, after letting this set for about 30 minutes, were finally gone. The two-pack is also a great bargain and much better price than the local stores. Like many cleaning products, the scent may be strong for some and I'd also wear rubber/latex gloves when using this...otherwise, no complaints and will definitely be using this again." —Jeff Richardson

    41. A car trash can you can use to help tidy up your car as you go instead of having to haul out the trash in armfuls every few months.

    Promising review: "As much as it looks like a giant leech is crawling up your seat or dashboard, it's really handy to have a place of refuse so closeby. Great upgrade from the plastic Target shopping bag haphazardly tied to my car interior." —D. Chang

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    42. Goo Gone – it can make all sorts of sticky messes you've resigned to living with disappear — including that old magnet that fused with your rental apartment's fridge (me) or stickers fused with garage door windows (my friend who just bought a house).

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Seriously, a swipe of this stuff made the goo leftover from a magnet wipe away like magic. Of course after i'd ruined a manicure unsuccessfully scratching away at it.

    Promising review: "I used this on my JBL LSR4236P Studio Monitors and it worked very well. For some reason JBL decided to put some kind of weird adhesive on the front of these monitors, which caught every piece of cat hair and dust that touched it over the years. Used this with some paper towels and a little elbow grease and the adhesive came off quickly. The Picture I added: (Left) After Goo Gone (RIGHT) Before Goo Gone." —Andrew

    43. A over-the-door laundry hamper to get those discarded PJs and undies off the bathroom floor. Raise your hand if you've ever tripped on your or a loved one's dirty underwear ::raises both hands::

    44. And a foldable double hamper with removable liners that'll help you sort lights from darks from the get-go.

    45. A self-cleaning litter box that also happens to look like a toilet but TBH you can live with that because it'll take so little upkeep on your part.

    This gadget flushes out waste and washes itself clean. It works with washable granules — instead of traditional clay litter — that you can use over and over again while satisfying your feline's digging desires.

    Promising review: "I cannot say enough about this piece of equipment. I haven’t touched cat poo in weeks. I installed this about two months back. It’s been a dream. I did notice a small leak at the joint but adjusted everything to stop it. I would suggest checking fittings occasionally to ensure leaks are seen as quickly as possible. Only other minor complaint is I need to flush the toilet occasionally to remove the smell that sometimes lingers after a self cleaning. I just love this worry-free machine. Honestly best investment I ever made next to my Rumba." —Jennifer Stoll

    46. Odor-blocking trash bags to buy another day here or there before you take out the trash. As one lazy person to another, I get it.

    I've used these before and they def do a better job at odor-blocking than regular trash bags!

    47. And an odor-minimizing diaper pail so diaper wafts won't assault your nostrils during changing time — or any other time. Just read the reviews....

    Amazon

    A diaper pail like this is what my mom *always* buys when shopping a baby shower registry. The sliding lid makes dumping the dirty diaper in way faster without assaulting yourself with a waft of putrid air. Oh hey, and the stainless-steel construction makes it easier to clean, sanitize.

    Promising review: "This product is amazing! We had a Diaper Genie for years before we bought this. When they are newborns their diapers don't stink as bad so it's not a big deal. But older baby poop has a much stronger smell. We started putting the Diaper Genie in the garage because we didn't want our house to smell like poop. And the replacement liners are ridiculously expensive. This product solves both problems. Because it is made of metal, it holds the smell in. I have put some really gross smelling diapers in there and there is still no smell in the room. And this product uses ordinary trash bags, which saves tons of money! There is also a child lock on the top so your toddler can't open the pail. So glad we bought it. Pays for itself over a Diaper Genie because of using ordinary trash bags." —Tim Hayward

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99+ (available in 12 colors).

    48. Finally, some good ole' Magic Erasers that'll handle most of the elbow grease when you *do* have to scrub at a variety of stains.

    It happens. Sometimes you DO have to scrub. It's a matter of life! (Says the lady who just scrubbed her own tub with one of these bad boys.) This is the most durable Magic Eraser with 3X the power of bleach. If you aren't on the Magic Eraser train just yet, hop on already.

    Promising review: "Trustworthy, truly durable, excellent results. Much better than the regular kind. Get these, you worn be disappointed. It took out highlighter and Sharpie marks from my wooden table in a flash. Then I just dried up the wet spots from cleaning it with the Magic Eraser, then wiped the table down with some lemon-scented wood cleaner. Table looks brand new again! Absolutely no harm done to the table when using this Magic Eraser. Very pleased. Box has several as well, should last us a good while if we have 'oopsies' ever again in the future!" —C.G
