    Promising review: "This stuff is AMAZING!!! It cleaned the impossible to remove scuff marks off my fridge, my stove top, and cleaned out pans that we have tried EVERYTHING on. It was so easy! It took minimal scrubbing and now we can use our pans again. So worth the money, you can use this stuff to clean so many things!" Angie Sparrow

    2. squeegee broom that'll remove pet fur and human hair from indoor surfaces. Its rubber bottom picks up debris deeply trapped in your carpets and rugs, or scattered all over your hardwood floors. Take a look at the results below and you'll probably never go back to your vacuum.

    BuzzFeed editor Emma Lord owns this squeegee broom and said: "An embarrassing confession: I do not have a pet, but I shed like nobody's business. 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 FURemover broom review for more deets."

    3. And a pet hair remover to immediately roll away lots of fur on your bedding and couch cushions. If your pet loves to leave a fluffy mess around your home, this reusable tool will be game changing if you don't want to spend hours cleaning.

    Promising review: "I am allergic to cats, so here I am with two cats that shed like crazy. Their hair is covering all the furniture. I have special pet covers on my bed to protect my comforter but I hate having to sleep under it since my cats sleep on my bed. I have tried so many cat hair remover brushes, gloves, sponges that never worked. I was ready to shave the cats and call it a day. Then along comes the ChomChom brush.

    "It not only has the lint roller but a bar that collects the hair. I love the little hairball container of the roller so I don't have to spend time cleaning off the lint brush. I can't believe this product works! I have an off-white couch and I didn't realize how much hair there was. After I used it, my couch looked lighter in color. I got my comforter cleaned off in minutes. It's a simple and inexpensive way to cure your pet hair woes." —Dondi

    4. Dishwasher-cleaning tablets that'll wash away grease and limescale build-up and leave your dishwasher with a fresh scent. Use it solo *or* with your next load of dishes, cups, and plates: Place one inside your dishwasher tray, run a wash cycle, and you'll give this kitchen appliance the cleaning of a lifetime.

    Note: Using these tablets monthly can help improve dishwasher performance, because they'll clean hard-to-see areas (internal hoses, pump and valve, and the tub) crucial for washing dishes. If your plates are coming out cloudy or dirty often, you may want to buy some of these dishwasher-cleaning tablets for better results.

    Promising review: "We moved into our house in late January and the previous owners were lazy. Upon opening the dishwasher you got hit with a 'yuck' smell. I tried a measuring cup filled with white vinegar, it helped, but the smell was still there. I saw these on a BuzzFeed list. I ordered and threw one in our dishwasher without any dishes and ran it. The smell is gone!!! I haven't noticed a difference in dish cleanliness yet but simply because I haven't ran it since. These are a great, inexpensive and easy way to clean your dishwasher for sure." —Amazon Customer

    5. A Wet & Forget shower cleaner that (gasp) you can literally leave and clean later. Instead of bending over a tub and scrubbing for eternity, all you have to do is apply to the grimy area, go do something more enjoyable, and rinse it away the next day.

    Promising review: "I have been having shower draining issues so there was a build up of soap scum in my shower. I have a very weak stomach and cleaning the shower makes me physically ill. I have tried several products that have claimed to be no scrub/wipe but this has been the only one that has worked. I sprayed it after my shower and left it to sit until the next night. Found that A LOT of the grime had disappeared. Now, was it perfect? No. But I think with consistent use it will get there. Highly recommend this product." —KZ

    6. A microfiber spin mop so great for sticky messes on the floor *and* making cleaning less of a project.

    Promising review: "I had had it with my broken basic mop and bucket. I tried to just get a dollar store Swiffer to get us by, but that wasn't cutting it at all. With three boys and a dog that makes his rounds on all the furniture and every exposed corner, I had to do something. After seeing a TikTok where a woman demonstrated this mop to clean her walls, and hearing my boss raving about it, I decided to click the Amazon button. Let me tell you, I HATE cleaning, I HATE mopping, but I LOVE for things to be clean. I was able to mop the entire house TWICE (Because it was that dirty. Please don't judge.) within an hour. A few days later I mopped the entire house again within 10 minutes because they weren't quite as dirty. On another positive note, my boys love the spinner and think it’s a toy! So, every time I get the bucket out my 10-year-old and 4-year-old ask to mop the house because they think it’s fun. MAJOR BONUS!" —Molly

    7. disposer foaming cleanser because when was the last time you ~actually~ cleaned your kitchen garbage disposal? It's easy to use and looks like a mini volcano erupting from your sink. Your stinky drain will thank you for this foamy and super-clean treatment. 

    Promising review: "This product is amazing. Every time I ran the dishwasher there was this horrible smell. So much that you could smell it throughout the apartment. I even started just hand-washing my dishes. But after about a week, the smell came back. I bought so many products to try and eliminate the smell, but after a couple of days, it would come back. Then I saw this product on BuzzFeed and thought to myself, why not? The first time I used it cleaned it out pretty well. Better than the other products. But then I used it a second time, and there was no smell. I'm going on two weeks of using my dishwasher, and I can't smell anything. I highly recommend this if you're having the same problem I was. This is by far the best kitchen cleaning product I've ever purchased." —khrystyne torres

    Promising review: "I love these brush attachments! Makes cleaning the grout super easy! Great for cleaning the water line on pools with hard water and showers/bathtubs. Attach to a drill, push the button, and let the drill do the hard work! Cleaning the grout takes no time at all. Or anything. Super fast, easy, and no sore body from scrubbing! I plan on buying the different colors as well. Each color has a different use according to the stiffness of the bristles. LOVE this item for way less cleaning time!!!!" —MizzouFan

    Note: It's recommended to use these tablets once a month to clean your washing machine.

    Promising review: "I like the ease of use of Affresh; I like how my washer smells after I’ve used it, and if something happens where the machine ends up a little funky, I throw another one in before my monthly scheduled date to use it. I find it to be a great way to help my washer smell fresh and really clean, which gives me confidence that my clothes will be that way, too." —Marina

Just a heads up, MAKE SURE TO USE WARM WATER. if you leave water in it and it gets cold, it's not as effective, so just follow instructions and it should be wonderful!" —Carlos

    Promising review: "I run dog services, boarding, and daycare out of my home. My carpet sees high traffic regularly and potty accidents on occasion. Love this Hoover! Holy moly! It picks up an INCREDIBLE amount of deeply imbedded debris, dirt, stains, and hair. The difference in how much cleaner my carpet is after using it is OUTSTANDING!! I regularly vacuum and spot clean with other carpet cleaners and couldn’t fathom the filth I was actually living in after using the Hoover. It’s easy to assemble and lightweight, too. You can’t deny the results when cleaning out the dirty water tank. Easily the best purchase I have made for my small business! Very impressive!" —Patty DeCarlo
