    1. A dry wash spray, so you can get one more wear out of your favorite tee before laundry day.

    Clear bottle with florals that says "Love Home And Planet Re-Wear Dry Wash Spray"

    Promising review: "Have you ever been inside one of those stores that sell crystals, herbs, tarot cards, and candles for banishing your ex-boyfriend? This spray smells just like that. It's a very fresh, mystical smell. I love that it is cruelty- and paraben-free. I feel comfortable spraying it in the house without worrying that I'm exposing my family to toxins. If you haven't smelled it yet, just order it and you'll know exactly what I mean." —Target reviewer

    Price: $7.49.

    2. A power scrubber because you've neglected your grout for so long, you're going to need all of the help you can get. Say goodbye to stubborn dirt and grime stuck in your bathroom tiles!

    Hand holds red and black power scrubber cleaning grime from a shower tile

    Promising review: "This tool works like a charm on my grout! I was using a grout brush, and it was so much work. This power scrubber is a lifesaver. I just spray a vinegar, dish soap, and water solution to loosen the dirt, let it sit for five minutes, then scrub away!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $19.99.

    3. A 20-pack of sweeping cloths that traps twice as much dirt within its 30,000 fibers as a normal Swiffer cloth.

    Green Swiffer Sweeper with soft sweeping cloth wipes grime from a hardwood floor

    Promising review: "I have allergies and three Corgi dogs who shed quite a bit, so these Swiffer Heavy-Duty Dry Cloths are a must. They pick up significantly more than the regular dry sweep cloths. I may alternate with the regular ones since these are a bit pricey; however, they are definitely more effective if you need more than just a light cleaning." —Target reviewer

    Price: $7.99.

    4. A stain remover, because accidents happen... especially when you've got a new puppy in the house!

    Gray and blue spray bottle that says "Bissell Pro Oxy Stain Destroyer"

    Promising review: "I've always used Bissell carpet cleaners. This spray makes the pet stains and old dirt disappear quickly with a little scrubbing. The carpet looks like it did when we moved in. My husband thought it bleached our light gray carpet until I reminded him that that's how it's supposed to look. I will absolutely buy this spot cleaner again and again for in between deep cleanings." —Target reviewer

    Price: $5.99

    5. A tiny bottle of detergent that is so concentrated, it can clean up to 66 loads of laundry! The formula is hypo-allergenic but is powerful enough to remove all of the stains and leave your clothes smelling like mangoes for hours.

    Clear bottle of Method Laundry Detergent with a mango-colored liquid inside

    Promising review: "I cannot recommend this product enough! It smells so clean and amazing and does not irritate my sensitive skin. I no longer buy any other laundry detergent." —Target reviewer

    Price: $12.99.

    6. Or a 45-pack of detergent pods, so you can toss it in the wash and be on your way. It doesn't have any synthetic fragrances, artificial brighteners, or dyes — just a whole bunch of plant-based ingredients that are gentle on your skin and tough on stains.

    Cloud-colored package of 45 Seventh Generation laundry detergent packs

    Promising review: "I love this detergent! They don't leave behind a residue on my clothes as the other brands do, and I don't break out from it. I am allergic to nearly all detergents, even the ones that say free and clear! I was nervous to try this, but it works really well!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $11.99.

    7. A bottle of dish soap specifically designed for cleaning out your baby's bottles. It's hypoallergenic, pediatrician-approved, and much more effective at removing milk film and odor.

    Pink and clear bottle of Dapple Bottle and Dish Soap next to a silver sink

    Promising review: "I wish I knew about this product sooner! It's amazing! My baby's bottles no longer smell like dish soap and they come out super clean. It also saves me time when I'm washing them. I recommend this product for anyone with little ones — even toddlers who use sippies!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $4.99.

    8. A bottle of Goo Gone to eliminate the sticky spots that are usually so frustrating to remove. Glue, jam, and gum are no match for this formula, which removes messes without damaging surfaces.

    Bottle of Goo Gone Goo & Adhesive Remover with orange liquid inside on a countertop

    Promising review: "This works very well, especially for removing sticky labels. I purchased a mirror and there was a huge sticker in the top corner. I tried everything to remove it and finally broke down and bought this. It was so easy to use, has a very pleasant smell, and doesn't leave any residue behind." —Target reviewer

    Price: $4.39.

    9. A rinse aid, so your dishes will be streak-free and totally dry once the dishwashing cycle is up.

    Silver bottle that says "Cascade Platinum Power Dry Rinse Aid"

    Promising review: "We stopped using rinsing agents years ago as they didn't appear to make much of a difference, but this one does. My glasses look gorgeous! Our water is much harder than most, so this product would probably be effective in any machine." —Target reviewer

    Price: $5.29.

    10. A duster that'll get to work on your dusty fans at home. The specially coated fibers lock in three times more dust and allergens than a feather duster, and the extendable hander makes it so much easier to clean your entire home from top to bottom.

    Yellow duster extends over the side of a brown fan to remove dust

    Promising review: "As the mother of two toddlers, two cats, a dog, and a spouse who is a hard laborer, I am constantly cleaning. This duster makes it less of a chore. The length of the handle is adjustable and can be extended up to three feet. The wand can be adjusted at all different angles and can be folded in for easier storage. The duster stays in place once it's attached, and dust and dander clings to it." —Target reviewer

    Price: $7.99.

    11. A squeegee because wiping the water off your walls after you're done showering is a really easy way to prevent mildew, mold, and ugly water stains.

    Promising review: "It seems silly to write a review for such a little product, but this is worth it. The brushed aluminum hook and the plexiglass handle looks terrific in our glass door shower. The rubber blade does a great job and doesn't leave any streaks. We couldn't be happier with it." —Target reviewer

    Price: $14.99.

    12. A microfiber floor mop that is way better for your floors than a traditional mop because *cups mouth and screams* too much water will ruin your beautiful hardwood!

    Price: $6.99.

    16. A natural multi-surface cleaner, so you can easily remove grime, food residue, and more stains from kitchen appliances. You won't have to use a bunch of cleaning products to get the job done.

    Promising review: "This is my first time trying Puracy's all-purpose cleaner and I love it! The scent is very nice but, most importantly, it's all-natural and developed by doctors. It cleans glass without leaving residue or streaks. Anyone who has autoimmune issues or allergies should really consider this product, but I am recommending it to everyone!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $6.99.

    17. A spin mop and bucket because cleaning your floors shouldn't be a dangerous endeavor.


    Promising review: "I usually hate mopping because it hurts my back, but this mop changed everything for me. Everything about this was easy and saved me from having to bend over. The spin is very effective and decreases the amount of solution I use. I was amazed at how much dirt and stuff it removed. I was hesitant to spend $40, but it was so worth it." —Target reviewer

    Price: $29.99.

    18. A 30-pack of stainless-steel wipes to give your kitchen a thorough wipe-down without leaving streaks or damaging the finishes. These will coat your fridge, oven, and faucets in a protective barrier, so you won't have to wipe them down quite as often.

    Silver container that says "Weiman Stainless Steel Wipes"

    Promising review: "Wow! I've always tried to use regular kitchen cleaners on our stainless-steel and could never get it to look like new again, until I got these Weiman wipes.

I will definitely be buying these wipes over and over again." —Target reviewer

    Price: $3.89

    White and clear tub of Cascade Platinum + Oxi Stain-Fighting ActionPacs

    Promising review: "No matter how many times you clean or bleach them, toilet bowl brushes are disgusting. I love this product! I love the slim design as it easily fits into a small space in the bathroom. The sponge gets super sudsy in the toilet and scrubs well. It easily pops off, then I give the wand a quick rinse and pop it right back into its very convenient holder. I will be repurchasing another one to give to my mom for her new apartment." —Targetreviewer

    Blue microfiber cloth folded up on a table

    Promising review: "This is my absolute favorite microfiber cloth. It does not shrink, pill, or fall apart.

It gets very sudsy, so a little goes a long way. It is actually effective at cleaning greasy dishes and is also gentle enough for sensitive skin — I have eczema and it doesn’t irritate my skin." —Target reviewer

    Price: $3.39.

    27. A 4-pack of sponges that you can sanitize in the dishwasher and reuse again and again.

    Yellow, orange, green, and blue Sponge Daddy sponges on a kitchen countertop

    Promising review: "I have used Bon Ami for scouring the stainless-steel sink in my kitchen, the bathroom washbasin, and the bathtubs. I prefer this product for safe and simple cleaning over powders that contain bleach. Bon Ami's ingredients are biodegradable — in fact, one of the ingredients is baking soda. Thank you, Target, for supplying my long-time favorite scrubbing powder." —Target reviewer

    Price: $1.49.

    Model pours gold container of Liquid-Plumr Pro-Strength Full Clog Destroyer down a shower drain

This was my last resort before calling a plumber, and it worked! I poured the solution down my drain, let it sit for about eight hours, then rinsed it with hot water. Now, my drain is working fine! I am so happy with this product and will use it from now on as preventative care." —Target reviewer
