    25 Cleaning Products From Walmart That So Good, They Could Almost Be Magic

    Products that'll clean your shower in a spritz, wring your mop out with a twist, and dissolve the grease from your grill with a mist.

    1. A cleaning stamp so that you don't have to keep a gnarly toilet brush in your bathroom *or* scrub at gross stains every week. These stamps last for up to 12 days and prevent any buildup, aka you'll never have to clean your porcelain throne again.

    Promising review: "There are so many products out there that don't work and are a waste of money, but this isn't one of them! The Scrubbing Bubbles toilet cleaning stamps destroys limescale, and my hard water stains are gone! My toilet looks brand new! I definitely recommend and will buy this wonderful product again." —Love to shop

    Price: $3.97

    2. A multi-surface spray starter kit with a nozzle that delivers an even, continuous stream, so that you can totally cover the area. It'll be such a relief to not have to have a bunch of different cleaning solutions; instead, you'll use this one on your kitchen surfaces, stainless steel, showers, and toilets. Simplicity is key!

    Promising review: "Spray this on your grease stove and tell me that you don't love it. This stuff is so great! Mr. Clean Clean Freak gets stains, grease, even scuff marks off of everything. It really takes the work out of cleaning with one swipe. I like the smell, too!" —Star

    Price: $4.94

    3. A cordless Swiffer Sweep & Vac, so you can combine two chores in one! The vacuum will suck up any big debris, and the dry sweep cloth will follow it in order to catch any dust or light dirt that might get caught in the crevices of your floors.

    This kit comes with one vacuum sweeper and eight pad refills.

    Promising review: "I love my Swiffer Sweep + Vac! I can do all of the wood floors in my house, including the kitchen, family room, and dining room. I love my Hoover Linx vacuum, but for cat hair and wood floors, the Swiffer is hands-down the winner. It is so lightweight and convenient. I love it!" —AMY C

    Price: $48.72

    4. A FURemover broom that can extract (and store) pet hair that has lodged itself in your carpet. You won't have to make 1200 trips to the trash can, plus you can flip it over to sweep up wet messes with the rubber squeegee.

    Promising review: "It takes over an hour to vacuum up my yellow lab's hair on a daily basis. When I used a regular broom, the dog hair would fly off or stick to the broom and not come off into a dustpan. This broom works great, and it only takes 20 to 25 minutes to pick up all the dog hair. I love that I no longer have to drag my vacuum all over the house. Cleaning up dog hair on a daily basis is no longer such a chore." —Bode

    Price: $15.10

    5. A 90-pack of cleaning wipes you can use these pretty much anywhere, from cars and carpet to walls and cabinets without worrying that they'll fall apart if you're using them for a tough scrubbing.

    Price: $11.94

    6. A Libman microfiber mop with a built-in wringer that is more effective at cleaning floors and substantially less gross than a traditional string mop.

    Promising review: "I bought this mop for the sole purpose of cleaning the linoleum tile in my kitchen. I have puppies, so I needed a mop that would be easy to use, would actually clean up accidents, and would be durable and long-lasting. The Libman Wonder Mop does everything that I need it to do and allows me to clean the floors as well as rinsing and ringing the mop without ever having to get my hands wet or dirty." —nomads151

    Price: $8.78

    Price: $6.77

    13. A 5-pack of Affresh cleaning tablets that are so convenient, you might actually clean your washing machine every once in a while. These will get rid of all the soap scum, mold, and grime that have built up over time and are leaving your laundry smelling not-so-fresh.

    Price: $9.98

    A 22-ounce can of Febreze heavy-traffic carpet foam made with Gain fragrance

    Promising review: "I have a cat and a German Shepherd, so basically my entire house is a heavy-traffic area. I saw and smelled a noticeable difference while applying this and after vacuuming. The scent was a little overwhelming during application, but it smelled fantastic once I vacuumed the excess. The spray nozzle works well, didn't clog, and was effortless to use. I will definitely be using this again." —Vi

    Promising review: "I have a refrigerator and dishwasher that were hard to keep shiny. These wipes are very easy to use and keep my appliances glossy. One wipe and done.

    Price: $3.74

    21. A gas range cleaner and degreaser for anyone who feels weirdly uncomfortable about the fact that the place where they cook food is weirdly the grossest are of their home.

    Promising review: "I used this on our 90-year-old hardwood floors. They were professionally refinished 25 years ago, but they get a lot of heavy foot traffic. I cleaned the floors with Murphy's Soap and applied two coats of Quick Shine using a cloth attached to a Swiffer mop. It has a fresh scent and dried in less than 20 minutes. My floors look brilliant, and I love that I can easily touch up high-traffic areas." —Mims

    Price: $6.97

    23. Lemi Shine dishwasher pods because you want cleaning products that are eco-friendly, but you still want to use stuff that can power through the tough muck.

    Sprayway, the world's best glass cleaner which is ammonia-free, leaves a streak-free shine, and has a foaming action

    Promising review: "This cleaner was recommended by the installers of the mirrored walls in our new home gym. With a microfiber cloth, it cleans thoroughly and easily. I appreciate that it is a foam that does not run or drip. It is also ammonia-free, which was recommended by the installers for mirrors mounted to drywall. It leaves no streaks, and I only needed to treat each area once to get great results. I was originally dreading the idea of having to clean two walls of floor-to-ceiling mirrors. With Sprayway, it is quick and easy." —Michael

    Price: $4.28 (for a pack of two)

    25. A weekly shower cleaner – they'll basically do your least favorite chore for you in one quick spritz.

    Promising review: "I've been this Wet & Forget Shower for a couple of years now, and it's great. A light mist once a week is all it takes to keep my bathtub shower clean. I had been using way too much at first and was essentially wasting the product. If you follow the instructions correctly, it should last at least 12 weeks just as they say. Be sure to rinse it off before you get in because the floor will be a little slippery. It is great stuff that I will continue to use." —BudM

    Price: $17.97 (originally $20.19)

    With all these products, you won't even need a magic spell to get your house clean in a jiffy.
