    Green Works / Facebook, Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "Okay, so I'm lazy. Using a reusable cleaning cloth and a spray on cleaner might save me a little money. But these are easy to use, don't require washing, do a good job of cleaning up the kitchen and bathrooms, and are compostable so can be thrown into my lawn waste bin. What's not to like??" —bargain hunter

    2. A toilet-scrubbing pumice stone so you can kick hard water, calcium and lime stains' butts and restore shine to your porcelain throne faster than you can flush.

    amazon.com

    Fret not, its material is specially made to avoid scratching. Plus the heavy-duty plastic handle protects your hands while you clean because...yuck.

    Promising review: "I have a 19-year-old master bathroom toilet that had accumulated some nasty stains over time, which regular toilet brushes and cleaning products just would not remove. I decided to try this pumice stone, figuring that the worst that could happen would be that it scratched the porcelain and I'd have to replace the toilet. Pumice stone worked like a charm! Given the nature and severity of the stains, it required some elbow grease, but 10 minutes later I have a new-looking bowl, and I see no signs of scratching. I am very happy with this purchase — well worth the very low price!" —Happy Retiree

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    3. A headlights lens restoration kit with only THREE easy steps to not only remove scratches and dullness, but also save yourself a lifetime of dangerously dim lighting on the road.

    amazon.com

    This contains sanding discs and a polishing pad to remove scratches and remove cloudiness/dullness from your lenses!

    Promising review: "I noticed my headlights were real dim at night and knew they were oxidized. This was on the 16-year-old Accord I use to commute. It only took 15 minutes per lens and they look great." —Greg M.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.50.

    4. An extra-tough sponge, because this'll scrub off burnt-on residue before you decide to let your dishes "soak." Plus, it's able to quickly wipe away that burnt lasagna *without* scratching any surfaces. You are officially out of excuses.

    BuzzFeed Reviews

    Promising review: "These are great for cleaning those 'non-stick' pans that stick. Everyone has them. They won't scratch, but will still scour away any mess. Keep them fresh longer by adding a tablespoon of bleach to your dish water, or toss them in your dishwasher." —qbNurse

    Get a nine-pack from Walmart for $7.97.

    See why this won lowest-price kitchen sponge on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    5. A can of oven cleaning spray that'll successfully wipe away tough baked-on spills (my worst nightmare: fallen lasagna) or messes that...have been there awhile. Either way, you won't have time to fume over chores.

    amazon.com

    Did I mention it's lemon-scented? And it's fume-free!

    Promising review: "I'm a little embarrassed to write this review; it's been six years since my last oven cleaning. After seeing the results, I couldn't help but spread the word. Sure, it took some beer, a little John Mayer, and a lot of elbow grease, but I got the job done, thanks to this handy little product. It did require two treatments; however, given the circumstances, this product accomplished quite a feat in just an hour. The attached pictures (above) speak for themselves." —William Fredericks

    Get it from Amazon for $6.29.

    6. A compact handheld vacuum specifically designed to collect pet hair so it'll be easier than ever to tackle every single surface your loving-yet-ever-shedding friend has touched. So everything.

    amazon.com

    Its specialized rubber nozzle attracts hair and pulls out dirt on areas like stairs and upholstery.

    Promising review: "I have a huge, plushy brown couch and a black and white cat who loves to sleep on one particular cushion which happens to be on top of the couch in a really hard place to vacuum. The roller-lint brushes didn't work well, nor did my Dyson vacuum hose attachments, but this little thing worked! I'm so excited to have a clean couch again, it's extremely important for me considering I am allergic to my cat and I refuse to re-home her so containing the hair and dander is a must for me. I literally just got it and used it on the couch right away, and the difference is huge. It did not get every single hair, but it got most of it and I'm happy with it." —Nanci

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    7. A deep cleaning brush set for conquering grout, shower doors, stovetops, or really any hard-to-reach area without having to scrub on all fours for much time at all. SO LONG, "toothbrush trick."

    amazon.com

    It comes with two brushes: one with an angled tip to clean dirt from tight crevices, and one with a large brush to to tackle grout.

    Promising review: "This is a big step up from toothbrushes, which I have used for many years prior to buying these. Key improvements over toothbrushes: angled handles that get your hands up and out of the way, the handles are bigger and grippier than a toothbrush, the larger brush has pretty stiff bristles which are great for heavy scrubbing without scratching, the smaller brush has tapered softer bristles on one end (good for cleaning in tight areas), and the rubber nub on the other end of the smaller brush is surprisingly good for cleaning in tight areas. I replaced the four toothbrushes in my cleaning kit with these." —jfb

    8. A pack of water bottle–cleaning tablets, because these'll FINALLY reach the bottom of yours without the need for scrubbing — goodbye mysterious smell.

    amazon.com

    They're biodegradable, chlorine free, all-natural, and environmentally safe!

    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 it was new. I called my wife over to show her, and she was equally impressed. Awesome product!" —Robert A Moreno II

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $7.95.

    9. An extendable tub and tile scrubber with a pivoting head that'll get every nook and cranny squeaky clean without making you get down and gritty. Translation: you just reach and scrub. That's it.

    Amazon

    It extends between a whopping 26-42 inches!

    Promising review: "I have cancer in my spine and so I experience pain every day. I have been unable to lean over and clean my bathtub for a month! I thought I must do something and decided to take a chance on this. I am so glad I did! This thing really gets my bathtub clean, every single corner of it! And I do not have to bend at all. What a great tool this is!" —C. Berfield

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    10. A rust stain remover so you can get anything from old toilets to sinks back to new in just a swipe. The spray gel formula clings onto the surface to dissolve rust stains in mere minutes — water damage be damned.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I used it on our tubs, toilets, sinks, and shower. It took one bottle of this stuff to achieve the same result as three bottles of other brands. I will buy this again hands-down. I just sprayed, walk away for a few minutes, and wiped and rinsed." —Carrie D.

    Get it from Amazon for $5.48.

    11. A TubShroom that'll do all the work for you by catching lovely hair clumps and product buildup so your weekend doesn't go ~down the drain~.

    Promising review: "I can't say enough good things about this product. I have a family of four, and would frequently have to snake our shower drain. It appears I won't be having that problem ever again. I even give my dog baths, and this collects the hair. You don't know how much hair you wash down your drain until you use this!" —Aaron Morlock

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95 (available in five colors).

    12. An upholstery stain remover, because this'll save your couch from anything, like tough spills and pet accidents, after just a few good scrubs. It'll even eliminate odors so you don't need to remember your puppy's ~incident~ every time you sit down.

    amazon.com

    It's great for carpets, too! Each bottle comes with a fabric-safe brush to make scrubbing *extra* effective.

    Promising review: "This works great! My chair was nasty and this cleaner was able to make it look new again. I used it on one side (above) so I could see how well it works; the difference is amazing!" —GreenHair

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $14.99.

    13. A dusting glove that'll streamline cleaning your blinds to a few flicks of your wrist. Collecting dust and fluff from all those hard-to-reach areas is right at your fingertips now.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Do you hate having to dust around things? I know I do. This glove is ideal — you can just wipe away dust while easily maneuvering around odds and ends in your way. Because it’s your own hand inside the glove it’s also easy to maneuver over oddly shaped things like silk plants or blinds. I absolutely recommend this!" —Katherine Wise

    Get it from Amazon for $14.94.

    14. A carpet cleaner and deodorizer solution so you can take care of spilt wine without going through the seven stages of grief. This is strong enough to need only a few passes of the vacuum to let you pretend it never happened.

    amazon.com

    It also deodorizes any gifts your pet might have left you (and it's biodegradable and non-toxic so your furry friend is totally safe).

    Promising review: "I never write reviews, but with this I had to. I've had this product about a month and a half and it is nothing short of a miracle. I have light cream carpet and five indoor pets. My husband and I work full time, so sometimes the chance for an 'accident' is not out of the question. We live on a farm-like property with a lot of dust and dirt. I used this on my traffic areas and just couldn't believe my eyes. The water was black, and my carpet looks as though it was cleaned professionally. When using this, you can literally see the dirty water being extracted from the carpet into the clear tank. One of my best purchases ever." —shannon m. adkins

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    15. A paw-cleaning device to keep muddy tracks from even appearing in your home. Think of this is the fastest and most effective way of asking Mr. Floof to kindly wipe his paws at the door.

    amazon.com

    It has gentle silicone bristles to help remove dirt and mud from your dog's paws — which is all collected in this handy little device.

    Promising review: "I love it! I highly recommend this to everyone. I have a golden and lab/shepherd mix, both dogs love water and the mud. I would go through multiple towels a week cleaning their feet, this changes that completely. At first my dogs were nervous about this, but after a few uses they don’t mind at all. It cleans in between my Golden's feet so well, I can’t believe it." —Valerie U.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in three sizes and colors).

    16. A bottle of dish-washing powder, because this'll restore plates with hard water stains or just glasses you've been *getting around* to replacing after many red wine nights. Throw 'em in the dishwasher with this, and they'll be back to brand spanking new.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I could not get my flatware to come out clean from the dishwasher and I wondered if it was the hard water. I was using up to three soap blocks in each load with only partial improvement. I used this the first time and voilà! Perfectly clean flatware for the first time. I LOVE this!" —Susan A

    Get it from Amazon for $5.97.

    17. A powerful vacuum that'll get down to BUSINESS when it comes to deep-cleaning your entire house. It's lightweight so you can carry it everywhere, works hard to dig up embedded dirt and hair, and features hoses to clear out tricky corners. AND it has a large capacity dirt tank so you can go room to room without having to empty the vacuum.

    Walmart

    This is basically built for cleaning your house top 👏 to 👏 bottom 👏 in the most efficient way possible.

    Promising review: "This works great on my carpet. I spilled sloppy joes on my floor mat, took it in the house, scrubbed off what I could, and got the vacuum out. The vacuum made my floor mat look brand-new. I could not believe it got all the dog hair, my hair, salt pellets and everything else on it off. I live in Minnesota six months out of the year so you're tracking in snow and all kinds of salt. It looks brand-new; I am totally amazed!" —Emma

    Get it from Walmart for $49.94+ (originally $53.88; available in three colors).

    18. A jetted tub cleaner so you can wash away yucky residue with time leftover to actually take a relaxing bath. How? It eliminates black flakes in jets and deep cleans everything in an average of *15 minutes*.

    amazon.com

    It works on both jetted and regular bathtubs!

    Promising review: "This stuff is seriously amazing! I am relentless about cleaning my tub, because I use it so often and always get grossed out if I don’t. Before I purchased this, I used the typical homemade recipe of bleach and powdered dishwashing soap. I’d have to run two or three cycles to get it crystal clear. One cycle with this stuff in 15 minutes makes amazing results! When I refill the tub up, and rerun the jets, I kid you not the water is CRYSTAL CLEAR! I’m so impressed!" —Chelsea L.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    19. A set of laundry machine cleaning tablets for hitting the reset button on the appliance we probably always forget to clean. Toss in a pod, start a wash cycle, and let it do all the *heavy lifting* of penetrating and dissolving residue.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have been using bleach to clean my machine for some time, but decided to give this a try a few months ago. My very first clean with Affresh left me surprised and delighted, for not only did it clean my machine, it eliminated the nasty smell that always transferred to my clothes thanks to a build-up of mold I didn't even know about. Every month now, I toss a tablet into the drum and let it work its magic. Now my machine is cleaner than ever, and my clothes always smell wonderfully fresh. I highly recommend this to everyone." —Kelli Crawford

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $11.99.

    20. A polishing spray and microfiber cloth set, because this'll remove fingerprints and smudges from your stainless steel appliances in 🙌 one easy step 🙌. Who knew brilliant results required so little of you?!

    amazon.com

    It contains all plant-based materials!

    Promising review: "I bought this simply based on the reviews and this stuff is awesome! I have two little kids who leave smudges and fingerprints all over my stainless appliances and the tiniest amount of this cleaner erases the mess and leaves a beautiful shine. Often after a few sprays there is enough spray in the cloth that I can clean the rest of my appliances without using any more from the bottle. I highly recommend this cleaner!" —LK28

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    21. A tub of heavy-duty cleaning wipes that'll conquer scary messes wherever they happened: even on your carpet. The next time you spill nail polish on the rug again (tonight), you can be done with panicked scrubbing before you know it.

    Amazon

    These work on almost any surface: leather, fabric, furniture, hardwood, pans, metal, WHEREVER. And! They'll clean up grease, oil, tar, dirt, ink, lipstick, nail polish, food, and a whole lot more.

    Promising review: "These are awesome! The size of the container is large and so was the quantity I received. The wipes are huge and tough, great for scrubbing! I cleaned my whole house with these and they removed stains I haven't been able to get out for a while. I also tried them on my walls and they did not remove the paint. Also, they smell fantastic: no chemical smell whatsoever. These are a great deal on Amazon, and I will be purchasing them again!" —Suze

    Get a 90-pack from Amazon for $11.94.

    22. A concentrated gel sealant so you can remove the mold and mildew that's been plaguing your bathtub forever. Just apply it to the area, wait a few hours, and wash the gel off. Suddenly you can stand in the shower without the sight of mold again.

    amazon.com

    Plus it helps to prevent mold and mildew from returning!

    Promising review: "We recently bought an old house that had last been renovated in 2006. In that time the shower did not get much cleaning and had some mold growth, especially around the seals. We tried using bleach and other mold remover products with partial success. After one application of this one, the mold was gone." —Darryl Campbell

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    23. A tub of OxiClean stain remover for immediately cancelling big messes no matter how intimidating the damage. Spilt food on your comforter? More like wine? Easy peasy. Believe in the power of Billy Mays.

    amazon.com

    The reviewer above used it as a stain remover in her carpet steaming vacuum!

    Promising review: "This works so well as a stain remover and is so easy to use! Just throw it in the washer with laundry detergent and the stains disappear! As the mother of an infant son who is constantly spitting up, I couldn't be happier with the convenience and effectiveness of this product." —Lindsey Jebb

    Get it from Amazon for $12.48.

    24. A pet hair remover, because you'll only need to commit a few minutes to de-shedding your rugs and couches with this handheld sticky tool. I'm sorry, but it's to accept that *furry chic* is not a thing at all.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing is amazing. With multiple cats and two dogs who have no boundaries in the house (couches, chairs, and beds are free game), and more than a few with black fur, our furniture and carpets were constantly covered. This thing works wonders! It's easy to use, does the job right, and is cheap. What a bang for your buck. The fur comes right off, it's a miracle. I recently used it in our bedroom since we have light blue carpet. The vacuum wasn't sucking up the fur and the carpet looked dingy and dirty. I got down and went to town on the carpet with this thing and the difference is like night and day. It picked up everything. I scrubbed hard enough to loosen up a six month old skittle from the carpet too. Seriously, if you have pets, this is a must. Bought it in March, it's now October. and it still works like a beast. You won't regret buying this." —dameow687

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in two colors).

    25. A pair of microfiber duster slippers that'll sweep up dust bunnies as you go about your day as usual. Oh look, your floor is shining and all you did was walk to the kitchen. Better reward yourself with some brownies.

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This must be the greatest idea since the discovery of fire! Two days in, and my hardwood is shining! And all with just walking around! Of course the quality is pedestrian (pardon), of course it doesn’t look like it was made by Versace, but that’s not the point, is it?" —Nigel

    Get them from Amazon for $10.12 (available in sizes 6-9 and in two colors).

    Check out "We Tested Gadgets For People Who Suck At Cleaning, And Here's What Actually Worked" for more details on these lil' helpers.

    26. A jewelry cleaning solution so you can get a sparkle back in your eye in just a ~blink~. It includes a basket that allows your precious stones to soak, as well as a brush for extra scrubbing.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've used this on my wedding set (platinum and diamonds) and on a white gold ring with an aquamarine stone, and it worked great! I got a better clean with this cleaner than when I take things to the jeweler. The jar makes for easy, safe cleaning of jewelry. I can't wait to clean other items!" —Mrs. B

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95.

    27. A cult-favorite drain snake with a flexible barbed wand for finally putting an end to showering in standing water. It turns out even when you use 10 pounds of conditioner (don't deny) clogged drains are avoidable — especially since this takes less than a minute to use.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Seriously, this was so satisfying and gross. For months my tub had been clogged up. At first, it wasn't bad, just a couple inches in the bottom of the tub, but when it got to the point that the water rose to mid-calf and didn't drain for thirty minutes, I knew I had to do something. I tried to use a straightened-out metal coat hanger and while I got stuff out, it still didn't drain! As soon as I got these in the mail I went to the bathroom, stuck it in there, and pulled. It was like deep sea fishing. I struggled to get it out, not because I'm weak, but because what was attached at the end was a ball of hair/conditioner/gunk/boogers (probably) the size of a rat. It was weirdly satisfying, like watching those pimple videos on Youtube. Anyway, even after the trauma to the snake I used, it can still be used again! And I have three more!" —Elizabeth

    Get it from Amazon for $7.89.

    28. A leather cleaner, because it'll actually take longer to shop for a new couch than to just treat it with this. It'll remove dirt, oil, and tough stains with plenty of time leftover for you to sit back down and binge Netflix.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My 15-year-old leather sectional hadn't been cleaned or conditioned in three to four years because I couldn't find anything that worked well without causing it to look blotchy. The color was also fading and I thought it was a goner. After some elbow grease, the sectional looks great! It's now back to its original color without being blotchy. More importantly, the suppleness has returned. I can actually say that it looks as good as the day we bought it." —jellybean55

    Get it from Amazon for $16.90.

    29. A wine stain–removing spray that'll prevent any nights out from going sour. But if you DO spill red wine (who trusted us with merlot?!), you'll be able to spritz away all your problems. Back to the cheese spread.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I fell in love with this product some 15 years ago and I am so very happy that it's still available in the same wonderful formula as ever. It has a fantastic citrus scent. This takes care of any stain so fast and efficiently, it's become a party trick. I have seriously poured red wine over a white comforter to demonstrate how great it is to a friend once. It is a miracle in a bottle! We use it for all sorts of cleaning on materials around the house, and one bottle has lasted us years! This is definitely a product every home should have." —Melanie Nolen

    30. A set of foaming bath scrubbers so you can conquer the tub you guys were starting to get nervous to bathe in. This will easily wipe away the toughest of grime, soap scum, etc. so you're done before you have the chance to run away.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These things are amazing! We have a rental property and the tenants trashed the house. I went to clean up and brought along these magic erasers. The bathroom was in really bad shape. I gagged for a portion of my scrubbing. These worked wonders. I'd say that they probably cut my cleaning time in half. Water stains, grime, whatever it was that those tenants left on the floor near the toilet...it left everything looking as brand-new as it could. Saved me a lit of time and headache. Highly recommend these little guys. They pack a punch!" —Crista Nalezny

    Get an eight-pack from Amazon for $9.39.

    31. A multi-purpose cleaning solution for treating anything: rust, burnt pans, stained tubs, worn-down sinks, even Sharpie marks (!!!). Translation: before you replace everything, just give 'em the rundown with this.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was so bummed when I scratched up my pretty white sink with pots and pans. I thought I'd need to have it replaced or try to sand it and refinish it somehow, but I bought this stuff as a last ditch effort to fix it myself. It takes some elbow grease to make them go away, the scratches don't just wipe off, but if you scrub at them for a few minutes they melt away pretty quickly. After two rounds my sink looks nearly brand new again. It also worked on a few mineral stains in my bathtub that I thought were permanent after soft scrub failed to remove them. Again, a little of this stuff, the scrubby side of a blue sponge, a little bit of effort and they were gone!" —Dan Borden

    32. A spray bottle of pet stain remover, because this'll be a quick remedy whenever our best friend has an accident. Everyone can be messy! But sadly it's up to you take care of it — the sooner, the better.

    amazon.com

    It works on all surfaces and takes care of everything: urine, feces, vomit, and drool. They're lucky they're so darn lovable.

    Promising review: "Ok, I am about to get real here. Let's be honest, this product is for pee, vomit, and poop and it works like magic. I have an grandpa dog who was starting to have bladder control issues due to hip surgery (he's better now!). During that time, this stuff was a miracle worker. But, one day, dear aunt Flo surprised me a week early and I thought my white mattress would be ruined (I got to the sheets in time). Thinking to myself, 'What the heck?! How much worse can it get?' I decided to try this out. IT WORKED. Yes. I know that is not what this product is advertised for, but golly. If it can kick Aunt Flo to the curb, it can do anything. I am telling all of my girlfriends about this stuff." —Miranda

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    33. A brush-cleaning shampoo that'll restore your dirty makeup sponges back to their original, clean state. Plus, it's hypoallergenic so it's safe for sensitive skin. You know what's not? The bacteria on icky brushes.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Well, I can happily say that this cleaner does a bang-up job! My brushes were saturated with old color, to the point that I thought I might need to spring for a new set. Aside from just looking bad, though, all that old color was probably affecting pigment and application any time I used them. A little of this cleaner, a handful of seconds working it in and rinsing, and my brushes look practically as good as the day I bought them! It saved me a ton of money in new brushes, and it didn't take away from my being-lazy time!" —ysar

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product is great! All their products are great! But this new product they have developed knocks it out of the ball park! The pictures (above) are pictures of a 2007 Nissan Titan truck I was detailing for a customer. The seats were disgusting and stained. I CAN ASSURE YOU ALL I USED WAS CAR GUYS SUPER CLEANER to clean the seats. I simply sprayed this all over the seat until it was damp, scrubbed with a detail brush, then vacuumed all of it up and dried it with a microfiber. The results speak for themselves. This really is a SUPER CLEANER that is capable of cleaning mostly every interior surface and does an amazing job at it!" —Joseph L.

    35. A lemon-scented, foaming disposal cleaner for unclogging gross banana peels quicker than it takes to flick the switch. This'll cut through tough buildup before it even knows what hit it.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I've been using this product as needed (about once a month — sometimes more often) for more than 12 years now. I actually give the use of this product partial credit for my disposer still going strong after all these years. We have replaced more than a few disposals over the 40 years we've been homeowners and this is the first one that has lasted so long." —PennyPincher

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I own a cleaning business and have spent a small fortune on the name brand. I clean everything from condo rentals to long term lease/residential rentals and I have had to clean unimaginable NASTY, I mean 'pics or it didn't happen' kind of nasty and these cut right through it. They work just as well as the name brand, if not better, and they seem to last a little longer!" —Keisha Marie
