    1. A hardwood floor cleaning spray for anyone who gets the utmost satisfaction out of mopping the floors 'til they sparkle and gleam.

    Promising review: "This is the best product I have found for my laminate floors. I have tried so many brands, including my own vinegar solution as well as the one made by the manufacturer of my laminate flooring, and none of them compare to Rejuvenate. Everything I've tried has done an okay job but I'm still left with occasional streaks and dullness. This stuff is wonderful. It just takes a few spritzes in an area and then I go over it with a microfiber mop and I have a beautiful streak-free floor with a nice luster to it. Finally the laminate floors I wanted!" —ChattyPatty

    Get them from Amazon: the spray for $5.48 and the microfiber mop for $39.98.

    2. Or, a bleach-based cleaning spray you'll use to tackle soap scum and mold in the bathroom — just remember to wear a mask to avoid any harmful spores that may release while you're cleaning!

    Promising review: "I bought this with a lot of doubt. But it was almost like fading ink. In seconds right before my eyes, the mold in the edges of my tub went away. I was truly amazed. Other products I had to use a brush to clean but not this cleaner. It went away right in front of my eyes." —Jeremy Allgrunn

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in three sizes).

    3. A jar of chemical-free Humble Suds scour paste so you can conquer slime, mold, and grime on your tub, counters, and oven. It won't expel any harmful fumes and it's even safe to use on your hands or to wash produce!

    This set comes with a 10-ounce bottle of cooktop cleaner, one cleaning pad, and one scraper.

    Promising review: "As soon as I used this stuff, I couldn't believe it! We had a new stove that I didn't clean for months and assumed the burnt pea juice (my enemy) would just be a new stain forever. However, after one application, it was basically gone. I used the scraper that came with it and did one more small application on just that spot, and it was gone! Every time I use this it looks like my stove could be brand-new." —Christi Lambertson

    Get it from Amazon for $11.29.

    5. A reusable and machine-washable duster refill you can pop on your Swifter handle and tackle dusting the windowsills with ease. These will have you saying goodbye to flimsy and pricy refills, according to reviewers!

    Promising review: "It’s ridiculous how excited I am by this! We have a two-story foyer, and I’ve been noticing cobwebs on the second-story windows lately. There’s no way I’m dragging a ladder out to take care of that, but I hate looking at them, too. When I opened the duster, I wasn’t certain it would extend far enough. I was wrong! The duster telescopes and looks like it’s going to only extend a couple of sections, but it just keeps going and going! I was able to dust all of my second-story windowsills in less than five minutes." —BizCrank

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    7. A three-pack of durable dishcloths that can hold up to 15 times their own weight. They last way longer than standard cotton clothes, meaning they'll help you complete endless tasks — drying dishes, wiping tabletops, soaking up water from freshly washed produce, cleaning up spills — you name it, they can handle it!

    eight kitchen towles with various designs hanging up over a kitchen counter

    Promising review: "Fabulous dishcloths! Better than using a dishrag that gets mildewy and stinky instantly. Pricey, yet economic because they last and last! Throw them in the microwave damp to sanitize each night if desired, or wash in the dishwasher. Of course, can be thrown in with your other towels regular wash as well! Just don’t use any bleach or softener! just love these cloths, this brand the best!" —pea dee

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in 22 styles).

    8. Bottle Bright cleaning tablets to get all the gunk and grime out of your stained thermos so they rejoice in a chorus of thank-yous. Reviewers say they will leave your water bottles clean, odor-free, and gleaming!

    These tablets are biodegradable, chlorine-free, and environmentally safe.

    Promising review: "At work we have stainless-steel coffee pots with a plastic top that no one cleans and they are often left on for hours at a time. The bottoms got very gross and someone tried to clean them with hot water and soap, but not much happened. I bought these, added hot water and two tablets (since they are bigger than a water bottle) and let the pots sit over night. So much came off with no scrubbing! I then soaked again for about another hour with two more and almost all of the grime was gone. I did scrub just a tiny bit to get all the stains out with a brush I had and you can see the difference between the before and after! They are almost like new! I did this on two pots and we were all amazed by the results. Ordering more so that we can clean regularly since it’s so easy!" —Heather

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $8.

    9. A moisture absorber you'll pat yourself on the back for placing in the bathroom, behind the kitchen sink, in the laundry room, or in other damp spaces. These crystals last up to 60 days, and you can purchase separate refills for the future!

    Promising Review: "One day! That's all it took. I would give 10 stars if I could. Good grief! For the last two months, there was this stinky odor coming from the upstairs of my older townhome. And for two long months, I thought it was me! This smell would attach to my clothes after an hour of being home. I've tried the fan in the window, scents on my furnace filter, and an electric air cleaner/ionizer — then I got this four-pack, stuck them upstairs, and left for the day. When I came back, the smell was very minimal. I went to sleep and woke up (the smell is worse in the morning), but I could only smell the linen fragrance of these containers. All this to say, thank god that it wasn't me that smelled bad — just my home. These helped soak up not only moisture but also the bad smell." —Po

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $19.99.

    10. A pack of Affresh dishwasher cleaning tablets that'll make sure the machine that cleans your dishes is itself, clean — thank goodness.

    Promising review: "I bought two of these products; one for a clothes washer, and another for my dishwasher. Both of them work amazingly well, and left my appliances smelling great! They cleaned up the areas that would be otherwise almost impossible for me to reach. I definitely plan on ordering them again!" —Kristin Clevenger

    11. A pet-hair remover to get hair off the couches, beds, carpets, your shirts — you name it, and this gadget's got you covered.

    Reviewer's picture of the pet hair–removing roller filled with fur

    Promising review: "I bought this product after realizing the Scotch Brite fur-removing sheets have been discontinued. We have three cats and we regularly used the sheets to remove embedded fur from our sofa and chairs. I was skeptical about this product when I bought it and was AMAZED by how well this worked. The best part to me is that it also helps the environment because there are no sheets to be thrown away. Highly recommend!!!!!" —jean p godoy

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    12. Scrubbing Bubbles stick-on gels so someone else can worry about keeping the toilet clean for once, and that someone is the scrubbing power of these small but mighty gel pods.,

    Each gel stamp lasts for about 12 days, each refill has six gel stamp uses, and each box has two refills — meaning one box will keep your toilet clean for at least 144 days.

    Promising review: "I live in a two-story house with three men, so needless to say, our downstairs toilet becomes quite a mess no less than three days after I clean it. But with this product, it keeps the bathroom smelling fresh, the toilet looking clean, and me feeling less grossed out about cleaning the toilet at the end of the week! I highly recommend this product for anyone with a house full of guys, or just someone who hates cleaning the toilet as much as I do. You could easily not scrub your bowl for two weeks and not have to worry about stuck on grossness." —Vanessa

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $21.99.

    13. And a nine-pack of all-natural toilet bombs everyone in the house will be glad you bought once those unsightly hard-water stains are gone!

    Promising review: "I love these toilet bombs!! They came very quickly and each bomb is sealed in plastic then put in an airtight ziplock bag. I used one immediately and was amazed at how well it worked. It got off a calcium ring I haven’t been able to remove for a long time." —annebmudra

    Promising review: "These wipes work very well! Even came with a nice soft cloth! What! Yes! I was surprised too! I’ve been using these to clean off all the doggie nose snot smudges from my car windows and my dog’s 'lookout' windows where she protects our home from squirrels. I highly recommend this product. Works very well and they are very good quality! It’s nice to see clearly out my windows again." —Nancy Domingo

    Get a bottle of 30 from Amazon for $9.97 (also available in a pack of 60).

    15. A box of dye , enzyme-, phosphate-, paraben-, and fragrance-free laundry detergent pods beloved by many folks with sensitive skin. These will clean and refresh your dirty laundry, and you won't have to worry about potential irritants getting into your clothes, blankets, and towels.

    16. A powerful yet gentle fan-favorite stain remover you'll be glad to have on hand come pasta night. It works on everything from tomato sauce to oil stains to pet accidents, and it's chlorine- and bleach-free.

    Promising review: "This stuff is magical! It’s super easy to use, and it works on almost any stain! My daughter made fluffy slime today, and by the time she was done, there was purple fluffy slime all over her dress. I scrubbed it with this stain remover and threw it in the wash thinking there’s no way the stains will get out. I was pleasantly surprised when I pulled the dress out, and there wasn’t a single remnant of the slime on it. It was a laundry miracle! Love this stuff and will continue to use it for everything!" —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $11.90.

    Promising review: "You most likely saw this on TikTok. If all the videos showing you that it’s a magical cleaning paste didn’t sell you, then let me just tell you: IT WORKS. My 3-year-old Picasso attacked my hallway walls with permanent markers! It's completely GONE. Which is AMAZING!! I was just about to give up. My hubby even used it to clean his headlights. Which to my amazement worked perfectly as well. It's a beyond universal cleaning product." —Katelynne M.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.55+ (available in one or two packs).

    19. An odor-removing gel you can place next to stinky garbage cans, in your bathroom, or on the counter when it is time to cut some onions. This powerful little jar will absorb unwanted odors and leave your home smelling fresh.

    The jar of odor-removing gel

    Promising review: "I have eight large-breed dogs that have the run of the house, even though we sweep and vacuum twice a day you can still smell dog. I have little to nothing in the way of soft surfaces that hold odor and the whole house gets a deep clean three times a week, but the smell keeps popping up. I put three of these around my house and people have asked me if the dogs are not in the house anymore. It doesn't cover up the smell, it really eliminates it and leaves the house smelling crisp and clean." —BB Caldwell

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $21.26.

    20. A bottle of Bar Keepers Friend soft cleanser designed to work miracles on stainless steel, brass, bronze, copper alloys, aluminum, ceramic, porcelain, glass, and Corian surfaces. It'll return scruffy sinks, rusted stainless steel, or grimey cookware to their original, glistening state!

    One reviewer said it even removed permanent marker! Read our review of the Bar Keepers Friend soft cleanser.

    Promising review: "Bar Keepers Friend should really be called 'Homeowner's Magician'! I purchased this cleanser in an attempt to revive our stainless-steel knife set, which is a great moderately priced set that has seen better days, and I'm extremely happy that I did. The cleanser not only took away the rust spots with minimal difficulty, but it returned them to their original luster! After cleaning our knives, I gave it a shot on our porcelain sink, which I typically have to douse in bleach cleaner to remove the stains from, causing the entire kitchen to be filled with noxious fumes...and it worked beautifully! The stains came clean, and it made the sink look pretty enough to eat off of." —Kat Ferrari

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $17.02.

    21. A granite and stone cleaner for anyone who wants to get their counters cleaner than they've ever been before. It'll make them shine and it kills 99.99% of germs and bacteria!

    23. A powerful carpet stain remover so that the next time a ketchup explosion happens, you don't have to dish out money to rent a carpet cleaner or replace the carpet altogether.

    Promising review: "This is seriously the most amazing product I have EVER purchased! I used it to remove a dry ketchup stain from the white carpet. It removed every speck of the ketchup without ruining the texture of the carpet!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.78.

    24. A set of three scrubbing attachments compatible with any power drill I need to order immediately, as do you if you've been dreading scrubbing the heck out of your bathtub.


    Promising review: "I bought this brush a long time ago and it sat unused. Last week, I finally pulled it out to clean the floor of a very dirty fiberglass bathtub. What a great little tool! A job that easily would have taken me a half-hour with a regular brush and Comet, took about five minutes and with no smelly harsh chemicals. I am really kicking myself for not trying it months ago. Now, I'm planning to buy one for each of my kids for Christmas." —xxxxx111000

    Get it from Amazon for $12.70 (available in five colors).

    25. A deep-clean brush set for when you're ready to *really* get into every dusty nook, cranny, and crevice in your home. This little brush can handle everything from stove tops to sink drains.

    The detail cleaner brush erasing grime around a sink drain

    Promising review: "A universal problem is being able to clean in those tight spaces and corners where dirt, dust, and grunge just seems to be drawn like a magnate. I really didn't know what to expect size-wise, but these have been just great at getting into those tight spaces. The larger brush is probably just a bit larger than a regular adult toothbrush. It has a good, comfortable grip and there is a comfortable spot to place a thumb or finger where the brush tilts back. The smaller brush is small — smaller than a toothbrush, more like the size of a child's toothbrush. It has angled bristles and a good, comfortable grip. The opposite end has a tough rubber tip that allows for cleaning out the drain in bathroom sinks. I've found this is a great tool to clean out channeled areas, such as the rim around my toaster that seems to collect crumbs!" —M. Galindo

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    26. And a doggy doormat your floors will thank you for when it stops your pup from tracking mud into the house for the umpteenth time. It's made of microfiber and it's super absorbent so it'll soak up mud and water as your dog steps inside!,

    It also has a super grippy bottom so it'll stay in place *and* its microfibers are designed to dry quickly so you don't have a soggy entrance. Reviewers say they just toss it in the wash (but most air-dry it)!

    Promising review: "This doormat has been a lifesaver! We have two large dogs and live on a large property that is mostly just dirt and sand. Our hardwood floors had to be swept daily (even with the Roomba tirelessly running!) thanks to the dogs always bringing in the tiny bits of dirt before we bought this doormat. I had finally had enough and needed a solution. This doormat catches at least 75% of the dirt, mud, sand, whatever else they bring in, saving me from having to sweep every single day. It is amazing and leaves me super happy! The dogs also really love to sleep on it, which is great because it gets the dirt off their stomachs as well! Fantastic!" —Megan

    Get it from Amazon for $29.65+ (available in sizes S–L and 13 colors).
