    1. A toilet bowl ring remover so you can stop gagging every time you go to use it. It also makes for a great arm workout! 💪

    Promising review: "Stressed for months trying to get rid of embarrassing hard water black ring in toilets. The Works, Clorox, Vinegar, etc...I tried them all...none worked at all. During a commercial break I tried this pumice and within 3 minutes the toilet was shining like new. Unbelievable. No scratches. They do wear as you use them as the pumice is softer that the porcelain, but harder than the stains. Used about 1/3 of one on each toilet." —CB Coop

    2. A dryer lint brush, because even though you clean out the lint trap *every* time, there's likely SO much more hiding in your dryer gap and exhaust port. This tool makes it easy to get all that yuckiness out, and will leave you feeling like your clothes are extra clean the next time you dry a load.

    Promising review: "What a great product. I empty my lint trap diligently after every load. I noticed some small lint pieces that got past the trap that i couldn’t reach, so I ordered this brush. I couldn’t believe the amount of lint that got past the trap that I was able to get out. Amazing and definitely a must have to avoid fires caused by lint build up in the dryer vent." —Al Garnica

    3. An oven and stovetop cleaner to remove grime, stains, and caked-on food — all in a matter of minutes.

    Promising review: "Unbelievable product! We are in a rental and have a gas range. The previous tenants left the range grills all full of grease and we could never get it off. We soaked it in Dawn dish soap, scrubbed with a razor blade and still nothing. Nothing until I sprayed them down with these one day outside. The grease came off in chunks. I have never been so excited and disgusted in my entire life. This stuff WORKS! Make sure to use it in a well ventilated area as it is very powerful." —Smoore

    Get it from Amazon for $6.88.

    4. A jetted tub cleaner because you have no idea what's hiding in those jets of yours. Better to just do the dirty work now, rather than find some unwanted surprises the next time you're trying to take a relaxing evening bath.

    Promising review: "This product did an incredible job. The oil/dirt that came out of the jets was unbelievable. It flushed out what I believe was mold as well. I have never done a cleaning of an indoor jetted tub, but it will be an annual/semi-annual task from now on. It was easy to use and we got results. What I did not expect was how much foam would be generated in the tub. I walked away and left it unattended (since you let the jets run for 15 minutes for the cleaning process) and when I walked in at the 10-minute mark the foam was almost flowing over the tub on the floor. I remedied this by scooping out the top layer of foam and disposing of it in the sink, during the last five minutes. Now I know, but I also know how clean the water is and I will do it regularly. Just keep an eye on it!" —River Rat

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    5. A splurge-worthy robot vacuum that does all the dirty work for you. It'll even slide right under your coffee table and suck up all your TV-watching dinner crumbs, because who knows the last time you *actually* cleaned under there.,

    Promising review: "Mighty impressed with my Roomba 675. I thought we had very clean floors, and when I used the Roomba the first time, the amount of dust it cleaned was unbelievable. But what really sold me on the Roomba was the next day use... I thought the floor would be clean... and it picked up half of what was collected the day before. Mind you, I live in the Caribbean, so open windows are common at home, plus have kids going in and out during the day. The floor surface feels totally different when walking barefoot after the Roomba cleanup, similar to when floor is just mopped (ceramic tiles in place). All in all, very pleased with the unit, albeit battery life... can be a tad better." —Jorge Hedges

    6. A rust stain remover, perfect for anything with an orange hue that probably shouldn't have one. 🍊

    If your shower looks like this, you must really, really hate cleaning.

    Promising review: "I tried everything you could buy at a big box store to remove rust stains and none of them worked. This stuff worked unbelievably well, without a lot of effort. I sprayed it down twice rubbing it around each time and my sink looked perfect." —Mike

    7. A stainless steel cleaner to instantly wipe away those mysterious streaks and smudges that somehow always appear on your fridge, oven, and sink.

    It also comes with a microfiber cleaning cloth!

    Promising review: "Unbelievably awesome!! I normally don't take the time to actually write a review but....This stuff is AMAZING! I haven't found a stainless steel cleaner that I'm 100% happy with until I found this stuff. Normally the cleaner makes it look great until it dries, then it's streaky & I can still see fingerprints. I was hesitant about this while I was using it because I figured it was going to dry streaky too but I was pleasantly surprised. I hope they never stop making this because my appliances haven't looked this good since we bought them." —JennMitch98

    8. A bottle of red wine stain remover, because that stain on your couch looks a bit like a crime scene. Best of all, you won't be embarrassed anymore when someone moves the throw blanket you've strategically placed to cover it up.,

    If you, like me, are a notorious spiller, this post might be of interest to you.

    Promising review: "Unbelievable. Spilled a half-glass of red wine at bedside. Two deep stains and splatters. Used this product times two per instructions. And pat pat pat. Went to pink. Poured hydrogen peroxide at end. Today, you CANNOT see any stains on the beige carpet. I’m blown away. Not sure peroxide was needed. I’d suggest waiting for hours and let it do its work!" —gjasmine

    9. A set of drill brushes for anyone who's seriously looking to take their cleaning game to a whole new level. They're great for cleaning things like tile, bathtubs, grout, door tracks, and even... stove tops?!

    Okay, so the drill is NOT included. This is just a set of three brushes that attach to your drill, or this one you might wanna buy.

    Promising review: "I had really tenaciously clinging hard water and soap scum on my bathtub. These brushes really made short work of it. Unbelievable. The tub has never been this clean. Sprinkled on a little Barkeeper's Friend and made short work of the job." —Nick

    Get them from Amazon for $14.95 (available in six colors).

    10. A grout cleaning pen to restore your grout tile lines and instantly take your bathroom from drab to fab.

    Promising review: "I guarantee that this grout pen completely transformed our bathroom sink and counter. My wife brought me in the day she did it and I just couldn’t believe the difference. Truly unbelievable." —Mike Garcia

    Get one on Amazon for $8.99 (available in two sizes and three colors).

    11. A pack of Keurig-cleaning cups because, despite all the deliciousness that comes out of that glorious machine, there's likely a whole lot of grime and gunk hiding on the inside that has no business being in your morning coffee.,

    Promising review: "Always have a difficult time cleaning the head section of my Keurig. First couple of times I used the pod the amount of crud that came out was unbelievable — all left over. Now it's just minimal, and it's not in my coffee. Use it once a week. Great product. Highly recommend." —PRODG

    12. An odor-eliminating spray designed to obliterate stains AND stenches. Your whole, "I'll clean it later" approach only works for so long, until a nauseating smell starts wafting through your home...

    model using the spray

    Promising review: "Unbelievable product! Works like magic. We have a 4-month-old rescue who decided two particular spots in the house where her potty areas... no matter what I used to clean up her accidents she returned to the SAME spots time and again. One of my friends recommended it and I am beyond satisfied. After the first clean up (on wood) she never returned to the spot! Same thing on the tile! I am happy to report potty training is almost complete and I have to give credit to Rocco & Roxie for helping. PS I have also used it around my kiddo's bathroom toilet and it has removed the urine smell from the bathroom!!! Worth every penny! Will continue to recommend to anyone needing this product. —CP

    Get it from Amazon for $19.93.

    13. Or this instant spot remover if you need more help with the stain than the smell. BTW, have you ever checked your mattress for stains? Who knows what's under all those linens. Might be worth taking a peek. 🥴

    And if you do happen to find some unsightly stains, this spot remover is sure to do the trick. 👍

    Promising review: "Unbelievable how this spray makes cleaning spills so easy! I started by testing it out on random dirt stains in high traffic area. Worked great. Then, lucky me, dropped a full bottle of red wine on hardwood floor and a light grey/white rug. It worked instantly! I was shocked!! I should’ve taken a before/after picture but I went into panic mode when the bottle broke. I assure you it took up every bit of the red wine. Highly recommend!" —Hayley

    Get it on Amazon for $12.44.

    14. A pack of dishwasher-cleaning tablets because, yes, your dishwasher does need to be cleaned occasionally despite the fact that its literal job is to wash the things you put inside it.

    These tablets are designed to penetrate, dissolve, and remove odor-causing residue that accumulates inside your dishwasher over time, as well as remove lime and mineral buildup. Using Affresh tablets once a month can prolong the life of your dishwasher and make it more effective at doing its job: cleaning your dishes.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical but it works unbelievably well. Our glasses have been getting cloudy and cloudier over the last year so. We put in the dishwasher tablet then placed an Afresh tablets in the bottom of the dishwasher and it was amazing. The glasses look like they're brand-new, absolutely clear." —Bill

    15. And washing machine tablets to eliminate any mold or mildew secretly waiting to stink up your favorite hoodie.

    THAT came out of a washing machine?! Like, how? Pls explain.

    Promising review: "Affresh Washing Machine Cleaner tabs — I have never cleaned my washer before after six years of ownership. OMG!! The funk that came out was unbelievable! I didn’t realize that I’d have to wipe away the gunk from the basin so at first I thought I had ruined my washer. I wiped it out and ran on cleaning cycle again and more gunk came out! Had to do it three times and then do another rinse cycle. Unbelievable!" —Stacey

    16. A blind cleaner brush because little did you know, those lil' plastic things can get suuuuper D-U-S-T-Y!


    Promising review: "I used this product first at a friend's house when I was helping her clean. Who loves cleaning blinds? No one. So I was a little excited to try this nifty gadget that she had. Not only did it work unbelievably well, I mean..ewww..gross..the amount of dust on the blinds, but it was kinda satisfyingly fun to use. As soon as I got home that night I ordered one for myself. My kids have been using it all morning with the same satisfyingly gross results. It comes with a good amount of microfiber clothes and it's easy to use and replace the cloths. I'd highly recommend this blind cleaner." —Jared Benoit

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

    17. A pet hair removal tool that's basically a heavy-duty lint roller. BUT, you can use it over and over again because it doesn't use sticky pads — just empty out the roller trap after each use. *Magic.*,

    Promising review: "I expected it to be good, but this hair remover is unbelievable!! I had cat hair all over a new bedspread in a spare bedroom. I had no idea my cat was sleeping in there at night. When I saw this a tried to clean it myself, I thought it was a lost cause. I saw the video that was posted and I thought can it really be that easy and that good? It is more expensive than other hair removal items that are shown. I figured if it is as good as what I saw it would be worth every penny. Well, it is as advertised. No sticky tape, no batteries easy to use and clean. I and extremely happy with my purchase! I plan to recommend this to my son who has three dogs. This would make a nice Christmas present." —Larry N. Covington

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    18. A pack of bottle-cleaning tablets that make cleaning your water bottles and tumblers less of a headache. If you're the person who just "rinses out" their reusable water bottle once a month with, well, more water, your bottle is likely filled with unwanted bacteria and grime.

    Promising review: "Anyone who 1-stars this product clearly has no idea what they're doing. I was ready to buy a new stainless coffee pot because I couldn't get rid of the coffee stains and smell. I put hot water in the pot with two tablets, waited a couple hours, and POOF it's like brand new again. No brown coffee stains or even smell. Unbelievable." —Prognosis

    19. A water mark removing cloth because you're always spilling drinks down the side of your nightstand (that just so happens to be a family heirloom) and you need to get it back in shape before your mother comes over next weekend and discovers your reckless ways.

    Promising review: "Amazing. After two seconds I was ready to throw it out. Then I continued. Maybe one to two minutes sometimes four to five minutes per water stain on my desk (it's been manhandled the last 15 years) and voila. It was unbelievable. This not only saved me from daily aggravation looking at a worn out desk, but potentially throwing the desk out or eBaying it." —AN
