    Promising review: "This product blew my mind. We had tried everything to get rid of this wine stain including white wine and pouring salt all over it. After spraying it with wine away, it completely disappeared in less than five seconds — and it smells like oranges! It also worked when I spilled coffee on the carpet a few days later." —Mattan Griffel

    Get it from Amazon for $14.64.

    2. A set of heavy duty wipes that are most definitely not here to play — they're basically the paper towel version of The Rock, and can lift up stains on anything from grease to permanent marker to nail polish. Bonus: they're tough on stains, but the aloe vera in them makes them super gentle on skin!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff really is magical! When we moved into our house, the previous owners did a horrible job of cleaning the stainless-steel appliances. There were permanent run marks going down the front that I could not remove....and I tried EVERYTHING. I should note that I’m not actually positive that these appliances are true stainless steel or just manufactured to look like that. I wanted to cry tears of joy after wiping down the dishwasher because I had been looking at those awful run marks for three years and they were finally gone! The whole tub is worth it for that appliance alone. As of now, I’ve only used it in the kitchen, but I plan on using it the next time I clean out my car, too. If it looks half as good as I think it will, I’ll be a customer for life!" —MayBae

    3. An all-purpose car upholstery cleaner so you can go ham on the interior of your car and lift up all the stains in one deeply satisfying go.

    Promising review: "Holy moly, how did I never know that this existed?? This cleaner is nothing short of a miracle!! My backseat bench has been dirty with mystery stains now for at least a decade, stains that were created by little kids, various passengers, cargo, who knows. I tried EVERYTHING to get out the hazy, dirty staining on my charcoal colored seats to no avail. Hot water and soap, alcohol based rubs, carpet cleaners, fabric cleaners — literally EVERYTHING plus lots of elbow grease. I grew frustrated and resigned that my car will look like a dump forever. Then I started doing some research and came upon this cleaner. Many reviews stated it was the best thing ever, car sites named it their top choice etc, I decided its worth a last-ditch try and boy I am so glad I did! It took four to five sprays, some minor agitating and rubbing with a broad brush, wipe off with the enclosed cloth and whaddaya know?? POOF! STAINS GONE! I simply can't believe how easy this was and how pain free, I will go tomorrow and clean ALL my car seats! I highly recommend this, it’s the bomb." —Manddun

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    4. A dual-sided device cleaner with two sides — one with an antimicrobial-treated cleaning solution to clear off the grime, and another with a soft polishing buffer to make it gleam.

    youtube.com

    One side dispenses a cleaning solution that kills bacteria, and the other side polishes the surface off so it looks nice and shiny.

    Promising review: "Saw a friend at work using this; she showed me and I had to have one. I wasn't disappointed. Gets all the gunk off my phone, iPad, computer screens, and my kids' Kindles. Getting these for gifts this year. Awesome." —kevin

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    5. A set of dishwasher cleaning tablets you can pop into a cycle with your dirty dishes to wipe out all the extra grime and that funky smell you can never seem to get rid of no matter how hard you try. You don't even need to scrub — these do all the work for you!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Saved me from buying a new dishwasher!I have to admit that I was skeptical that this product was actually going to do anything. I’ve noticed my dishwasher wasn’t cleaning dishes very well lately, and I did everything I could to get it working properly again, but was ready to finally give up and buy a new dishwasher. I bought these tablets thinking they were designed to eliminate odors, but I was willing to give them a shot before buying a whole new dishwasher. I put one in the bottom of the dishwasher last night per the instructions and woke up to completely clean dishes for the first time in weeks. They look perfect. I don’t know why these tablets work but they absolutely did and I am a happy customer!" —B. Turner

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $5.99.

    6. An internet-beloved pet urine stain-removing spray that instantly tackles both old and new stains *plus* the yucky smell, so you can enjoy the new quality time you might be getting with your pet without sacrificing your carpet and/or your nostrils.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I don’t know how I ever survived without this. There’s tons of 'pet stain/odor remover' products out there, but this by far is the absolute best. I cringed paying the $20 for it when others are between $5-$10, but I have NO ISSUES paying now. I foster dogs, some puppies, some older, some not house broken and every room in my house is carpeted except the kitchen which means I have lots of accidents. I spray enough to saturate if it’s a lot of urine, let it soak for 10 minutes then wipe it up with a hand towel. Then I put a larger towel on top of it if it’s in a high traffic area until it’s completely dry. It’s taken out every stain and more importantly the odor is gone! I will never stop buying this product. I recommend it to everyone who has dogs!" —Shelley

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    7. A portable paw cleaner with soft silicone bristles to help gently remove mud and dirt from your doggo's paws. All you have to do is add a little water to it, insert your dog's paw, twist, then pat the paw dry and repeat.

    amazon.com

    Psst — lots of reviewers mention that their dogs seem to really like the feeling of the silicone bristles!

    Promising review: "My yard is an absolute mud pit! I tried everything to clean my two German Shepherds' paws. This is the only thing that works! The silicone bristles must feel good on their paws because they actually stand still and let me clean them. The only complaint I can say is that it hurts your back after a while leaning over them, but I will take that any day rather than cleaning my floors 100 times! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a solution to their pup's muddy paws!" —Kendra Frankovsky

    Get it from Amazon for $10.79+ (available in three sizes and six colors).

    8. A power scrubber brush you can attach to a DRILL (!!) that basically does all of the hard grime-busting for you, so you don't have to have sore arms for a week just because you dared to wipe down the shower.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've been eyeing these for a few months and finally caved.. Man do I regret not picking them up as soon as I saw them! They work GREAT! We rent an apartment that has a 30+ year old shower/tub. I've used everything from abrasive powders, gels that sit to most recently the bathroom magic erasers and nothing really got the grime out. These WORK and they work fast. Ten minutes with my handy drill and the shower has never been cleaner. I love that I don't have to throw money out on cleaning products anymore and that I can be a little more environmentally friendly with no waste and no chemical cleaners! Just a little dish soap, baking soda and a spin of the brush. If you're on the fence, just buy them!" —Becky Adie

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in six colors).

    9. A fume-free oven cleaner that's gentle enough that you don't need protective gloves to use it, but tough enough that it'll erase the evidence of all your baking misadventures and that time you fell asleep while cooking pizza rolls.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Mine just came in the mail today and I used it right away — it works fantastically! My oven is an electric, probably slightly on the older side, and has been badly stained since before I moved into my current unit. I have tried everything I could think of to get it clean prior to finding this product and nothing worked. But after doing the two hour treatment it is almost all gone but for a few small specs here and there. I have just sprayed it again to see if those will come off too without an overnight treatment (just out of curiosity, it's perfectly clean as it is). I would recommend this product to anyone that wants an oven cleaner that works and is easy to use." —Lis Zupp

    Get it from Amazon for $7.10.

    10. A set of Bottle Bright tablets so you can tackle all those caked-on stains in your bottles, travel mugs, and even coffee makers without scrubbing them into eternity and wasting a small ocean's worth of hot water.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting Hydro Flask coffee mug; I tried everything — bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING — and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER Hydro Flask to replace it. Eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand-new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much that I used it on another Hydro Flask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING." —Amazon Customer

    11. A bottle of Bar Keepers Friend soft cleansing liquid and scouring cloth to take care of caked on stains *without* scratching surfaces, so your stove won't look like there was a literal cat fight on it when you try to clean it.

    Kayla Suazo/BuzzFeed

    I'm talking stainless-steel appliances, pots and pans, shower stalls, sinks, tubs —and everything's going to gleam like the day it was first born.

    Promising review: "I had a chemical stain in kitchen sink from a clogged drain. I tried everything for a year to get rid of it. I saw this product being used on a video to get their stain out and it worked for them. I purchased and this stuff was working like magic. The sink drain was real black. I poured this on and left a half hour. When I wiped with sponge I could not believe the black was not stainless-steel color. I did go over the other sink stain a few times and the stains were gone. So happy I do not have to replace the sink." —Liberty

    Promising review: "AMAZING product!!!!! My daughter ate a hot bowl of soup on my wooden table and left numerous white ring marks. I tried everything to get them off and failed every time. As soon as I put the product on, it was practically brand new again. Highly recommend this product!" —Diana V

    Get a bottle from Amazon for $7.99 (available in nine finishes).

    13. *Or* a set of 13 wood stain markers and crayons in different finishes — truly an investment if you have several wooden cabinets or pieces that need touch-ups, but don't all quite match. Now you're bound to have at least one color from this set that can do the trick on each of them.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I spilled half of a gallon of white paint on hardwood floors whose poly finish wore off years ago. After cleanup, there was still white paint in all the grooves. I tried everything to cover the paint — all kinds of stains, Minwax wood stain markers, etc, but nothing stuck to the paint. I finally tried these — they worked!" —gqtoo

    Get a set of 13 from Amazon for $9.99.

    14. A set of Magic Erasers that yes, you are already well aware of, but are extremely handy for all those miscellaneous, tough-to-deal-with stains. I'm talking those mystery dirty fingerprints on your walls, the skid marks by your door, and — perhaps most usefully — scuff marks on the soles of your shoes.

    amazon.com

    I have big Pam Beesly energy, so I wear white sneakers pretty much every day of my life — I swear by Magic Eraser to get scuff marks out and keep them looking fresh! I never have to get rid of them until the soles are literally falling off because it keeps the scuffs at bay so well.

    Promising review: "For years I have heard about the Magic Eraser. From friends and family, even co-workers. Not sure what took me so long to try it out, but when I did, all I can say is 'WOW'!!! I had embedded stains from makeup and who-knows-what on the bathroom Corian sink which I scrubbed with baking soda, even SoftScrub with bleach, and the stains didn't come all the way out. ONE TRY with the Magic Eraser and BAM! Stains gone. Then I decided to try it on the black toaster oven, where I accidentally left a loaf of bread and the plastic melted into the top. I washed it, rubbed it and used everything I could think of, but that thin layer of plastic wouldn't budge. In comes the Magic Eraser and it came off right away. No kidding. The name says it all, because this stuff is truly magic!" —GDB

    Get a set of eight from Amazon for $6.97.

    15. A broom for pet and human hair able to work on any type of floor, but is specifically designed to pull it up from the carpet faster and deeper than even a lot of vacuums can reach. In less than five minutes you'll find out what color your carpet's *actually* been the whole time!

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    An embarrassing confession: I do not have a pet, but I shed like nobody's business (that is, in fact, MY "before and after" carpet image). My hair gets so ingrained in the carpet that a vacuum truly does nothing for it, so I often was just unrooting clumps of hair from the floor with my hands (sorry for the visual). I bought this broom and it immediately started pulling it up GOBS of hair. My carpet like, genuinely changed color (turns out the pink was supposed to be much pinker, whoops). Anyway, do with that semi-horrifying information what you will — you can read my full review of the pet hair broom for more deets.

    Promising review: "I have two dogs — a terrier mix and a short-hair dachshund mix. I have a navy woven couch that LOVES my dachshund's fur. I have tried pretty much everything to get the fur out — traditional lint roller, those blue fuzzy lint rollers, special vacuum attachments, etc. The terrier's fur comes out great with all of those options. The dachshund's fur, much like the dachshund herself, remains stubbornly on my couch. I got this product as the new 'let's see if it works' item of the month with low expectations. THE FUR ACTUALLY CAME OUT GUYS. It acts like a broom for my couch — sweeping the fur (with some elbow grease) basically onto the floor where I vacuum it up! Give this a try if my story sounds pretty similar to yours!" —JT

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98.

    16. An enzyme-based laundry stain remover that works its magic in one wash to help you instantly get rid of all that discolored dried sweat, oil stains, or deodorant residue our of your favorite clothes.

    amazon.com

    This spray also does a number on all those other miscellaneous stains in your life, like wine, coffee, make up, and period blood!

    Promising review: "For whatever reason, I am ALWAYS spilling things on my shirts and I cook every night (sometimes I remember the apron, sometimes I don't). My clothes are a mess by the end of the day. I'm not proud of it, but there it is. I have tried EVERYTHING there is to remove stains and this is the absolute BEST thing out there. (There is simply not a major stain remover that I have not tried.) The only thing close is a long pre-soak (I mean like six hours) in Oxyclean. With Puracy, you get the best result by doing it well in advance, but for me that is another plus because I would far rather spray them when I put them in the hamper than do it all at once just before I do the laundry. It seems to get everything out and I've never had any trouble with damaged fabric. I don't really review very much, but this is seriously outstanding." —NYC Buyer

    Get it from Amazon for $13.74.

    17. A mold and mildew removal gel you can leave on the offending spots for six hours, then wipe away like nothing nefarious ever grew there in the first place.

    WE SUPPORT A BEAUTIFUL LIE!!

    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.

    18. A bottle of Goo Gone for banishing all those mysteriously sticky, tough-to-scrub stains, like toothpaste or shampoo residue or the adhesive left on your windows or cars from sticker decals.

    amazon.com

    People also swear by this for removing annoying stickers from new products in their kitchens and bathrooms, too!

    Promising review: "I had some decals on the front door of my business that had been there for over seven years that I wanted to remove. When I tried to pull them off, all the adhesive stayed on the window. It smelled awful. I tried everything to get it off the window: vinegar, sponges, Mr Clean Magic eraser, and finally pan scrubbers. I realized I was risking damage to the window, but the adhesive would still there. A client who saw what I was trying to do about the time, recommended Goo Gone. I let my arm rest for the two days it took for Amazon to deliver the Goo Gone. I spread it on with a paper towel, and let it sit for a short period. Then I took a cleaning rag and careful removed the rest of the residue. Easy! Next day I removed another decal. I applied the Goo Gone to the thick adhesive residue, and let it sit. Immediately the odor stopped. Huge benefit! Then as I wiped it off, the residue fell like sticky little worms dropping to the ground. A little more clean up of the floor, and I was done. Now I can feel confident that the new decals will come off just as easy when I need to change them, as long as I have my Goo Gone." —Andy

    Get it from Amazon for $6.98.

    19. A carpet cleaning solution that will dig in so deep your carpets will look like they're in a model home — even if the stains have been there for so many moons you can't remember what they're from.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "What an amazing product! I have tried EVERYTHING to get rid of the dirt, grime, and pet accidents, but this is the only thing I've had success with! The area near my bathroom vanity was DISGUSTING. It is a high traffic area, as my husband and I use our his and hers sinks every day. Our puppy also likes that area as her 'accident' spot, even though we have puppy pads all over the house. The second photo is after just ONE pass using my Bissell carpet cleaner. I used 6 ounces of the Carpet Miracle, and filled the rest of the reservoir with piping hot water. The red spot you see left is hair dye (oops). I am positive that it will come out with another pass or two. The fragrance is not strong or overpowering in my opinion. I also used this in my entryway, and it yielded incredible results there, too. I highly recommend this product, and will be ordering more soon!" —Melissa

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    Psst — if you're looking for a decent, affordable vacuum you can use with this carpet cleaner, Hoover's PowerDash Pet is $89.99 on Amazon!

    20. A jewelry-cleaning stick with cleansing solution on a brush designed specifically to get in the nooks and crannies of your jewelry as effectively as taking it to a professional.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My engagement ring had gotten really dull over time. I hadn't even really realized until I came across a picture of when I first got it and noticed it didn't sparkle anymore at all. Which was what I had loved so much. I tried EVERYTHING. Soaps, soaking it in baking soda and a little vinegar and dish soap, rinsing it, etc and nothing was working. This cleaned it up immediately and completely restored it to its former super sparkly glory! It gets into all the little crevices and clears away all the fogginess. Will definitely purchase again and again!" —Sheila

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    21. A glass and ceramic cookware cleanup kit that comes with heavy-duty scrubber, a razor blade, *and* a cleaner specifically designed to get at those caked-on stains, so you can knock it all off in a few minutes and get your Ina Garten game face on in peace.

    Promising review: "We bought our cooktop five months ago and it started developing really bad marks and stains. I tried everything to get it off, including baking soda, different detergents, etc. Really thought it was hopeless. We even tried to return our cooktop but because we couldn't we decided to give it one last try. Using the two tool that come with this cleaner we got 100% of the impossible stains off. I could not recommend this product more!!" —luckyrabbit

    22. A heavy duty grout cleaner you only need to let sit for 10 minutes before you can scrub the dirt and grime off all those sneaky crevices of your old kitchen and bathroom tiles.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We moved into our house a year ago and I’ve been on a quest to clean the grout next to the stove ever since then. I’ve tried everything — store products, DIY solutions, Pinterest recommendations, you name it. As a last resort I got this and holy cow! I left it on for three minutes as a spot test at first and I could already see a huge difference. I then did two more rounds letting it sit for five minutes each. The scent's not bad, it was fine if I had the window open, it was just being down close to it that got me. Seriously, stop looking and buy this." —Britney Phillips

    Get it from Amazon for $21.95.

    23. A hard-water stain remover to spare you hours of fruitless scrubbing (and spare your poor eyeballs the cringe of seeing a stain massacre every time you open your shower curtain).

    amazon.com

    It also works on shower doors, windshields, toilets, and tile, so you can get a ton of bang for your buck.

    Promising review: "Had hard water stains on my large glass window in my huge walk-in shower. I tried everything out there for several months. Nothing even touched it. Honestly, we purchased this and laughed at how we were wasting more money. Wow!! It took the stains right off. And it did it fast. We couldn't believe it. I have never been so happy over a cleaner. It doesn't even have a strong smell. I hardly ever write reviews but I had to on this one. One of the girls at work was having the same issue. I let her try it out and it worked for her. And it doesn't take much. I cleaned my entire window and didn't even go past the skinny part on the neck of the bottle." —LORIE LARANCE

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    24. A fast-acting carpet spot-removing spray that'll take care of those miscellaneous stains from a previous tenant or that not-so-miscellaneous time you spilled half of the red sauce from your leftover noodles facedown on the floor.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "So this stuff is magic, actual magic. When we first adopted our dog more than a year ago, we gave him a rawhide type bone that ended up staining our carpet pretty bad. Right in the middle of the living room with this obvious reddish/brown dark spot. We tried EVERYTHING. Resolve, Clorox, febreze, any carpet spot remover you could imagine. We even bought one of those bissel carpet spot cleaners with the hose and water and stuff. Nothing. Still a big ugly spot. I purchased this and used it ONE FRIGGIN TIME on that spot. The spot is gone. Poof. Just gone. Idk where it went, Idk how it went, but this is what made it go and I am now crawling around my carpet spraying any small little spot and just watching in amazement as it dries up and takes the spots with it. Thank you so much for this magical cleaner. I will never, ever purchase a different carpet spot cleaner again. PS. It’s a larger amount of cleaner than I’ve ever gotten for the price. Totally worth it." —Kristie Kay

    25. A pumice stone to make the inside of your toilet look brand-spanking-new, even if the rings have already thwarted your efforts with the toilet brush.

    26. A squishy universal dust cleaner that will get into all your space's nooks and crannies, like keyboards and A/C units and the vents in the back of your printer.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm both cheap and lazy, this leads me to purchase a lot of used electronics such as old laptops. I didn't much feel like taking the keyboards off the laptops that I purchased (lazy) for cleaning so I figured, 'hmmmm, sticky goo to get in the cracks makes sense.' This product was awesome, it takes a hot minute to kinda get the spread, flatten, and massage motion down to best get the ick off the keyboard, but after that the magic began. The gross residue started coming up and, to my surprise, it started pulling up hidden hairballs that had been long hidden in the depths of the keyboard. I'm thrilled with the result and totally recommend picking it up if you want a low-tech cleaning option." —sfjones86

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I LOVE this Woolite carpet stain remover with its rubbing brush. We stayed for some weeks at dear friend’s home while we were waiting to move and they were out of town. Their cat had done some nasty things in their rooms. We thought we’d show some of our appreciation by cleaning some of these spots off their light gray carpeting. IT WORKED! THEY NOTICED! THEY LOVED IT! I don’t know about the cat. So we bought this house with white carpets. Who puts in white carpets?? Anyways, we have white carpets. So I bought these Woolite cans and know they will be used and will do a great job." —Sany123

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love using this scrubber with all of my cast iron pans. Have had no problems at all with it stripping my seasoning. After every use of my cast iron I run it under hot water (as hot as my faucet can go) and lightly scrub away any leftover food bits. My seasoning is pretty solid so usually there isn't much to scrub. After use I just toss this scrubber into my dishwasher and its ready to go again for my next meal. Cannot recommend this enough to anyone that is serious about maintaining their cast iron." —Steve
