    8. A multi-surface cleaning powder in a variety of all-natural scents that'll make it significantly easier to scrub all your hard-to-clean surfaces (looking at you, bath tub corners) *and* make the whole room smell divine. I do believe Sunday cleaning just got a whole lot more rewarding — you might not even want to light a candle after.

    9. An automatic scrubbing brush so you can eliminate grout surprisingly quickly thanks to this lil' guy's impressive power. It comes with a detachable oscillating grout brush to bring your tiles from dingy to bright faster than it takes for your roommate to bring you a roll of TP — meaning maintaining a clean bathroom floor is no longer a feat.

    BEHOLD: the grout brush in action.

    10. A Squeegee broom for easily sweeping up dirt, spills, or pet hair off any surface (be it your carpet, wooden floor, furniture, whatever). Parents, if you've tried to get your kid's crumbs off your couch even *once* you understand why this is so heckin' useful — and why you're about to use it at least once a week.

    12. A mattress vacuum (yes, you read that right) that'll unfortunately bring to all of our attention that dust mites and bacteria live in *all* of our beds. I'll spare you the details, but if you think your mattress is perfectly clean...think again. If that disturbs you, using this semi-regularly should soothe your soul.

    13. A carpet spot remover so you don't have to pay an enormous bill every time your doggo has an accident...or you kid spills their juice, YOU drop something, someone tracks mud in the house, a lot happens! But your rug doesn't have to keep the evidence — this'll always get the job done.

    14. A sage and citrus multipurpose cleaner for making your home smell ~heavenly~ whenever you give your counters a quick spritz. Its all-natural formula of rosemary, lemon, sage, and essential oils (as well as distilled vinegar, water, and Epsom salt) just might make wiping your kitchen down even more rewarding than cooking. But not eating.

    15. A set of multi-purpose sponges reviewers say last an impressively long time *and* make cleaning tough messes a breeze. They have two sides: one made of soft microfiber, and the other extra-tough scrubbing bristles. And! They're machine-washable, so you don't have to replace them for quite some time.

    16. A flexible vent-cleaning brush, because it's actually *very* important you consistently clear out trapped lint from your dryer. Say it with me: f i r e h a z a r d. This'll make it easy to remember — and make the whole process super quick and effortless.

    19. A pressure washer so you can keep your home looking clean and new, no matter HOW many storms or just general wear-and-tear comes your way. Splurging on this once for consistent maintenance > paying $$$ for pro services.

    20. An extendable duster for reaching your ceiling fan from time to time to get rid of any dust bunnies that may be growing up there. No need to balance on your tippy toes, dangerously perched from a chair. This'll take care of everything without requiring you to even strain your arm.

    24. A Hoover automatic carpet cleaner for not only drastically improving your old rugs, but *keeping* them looking absolutely spotless. This'll wash and vacuum, so banishing grime from your home takes extremely little effort.
