    Reviewer's picture of the pet hair-removing brush 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 Olive Branch for $13.99.

    3. 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.

    4. A can of Bar Keepers Friend powdered cleanser you can rely on to keep your sink spotless and grime-free.

    Reviewer's before-and-after of their scratched-up porcelain sink and then new-looking sink

    It's also great for rust and grease stains!

    Promising review: "This stuff is like magic! Straight-up wizardry. I love it! I initially bought it to clean my sink, which is porcelain and even though it's not even a year old, is just holding on to all the coffee and tea staining. I'd say it took less than a minute after making a paste with this to clean the sink up to a nearly new shine. Anyhow, I've used it in the sink, in the bathroom, and to clean stainless-steel pots and pans on a 17-year-old Revere Ware tea kettle (which I thought would never be restored to its former loveliness, BTW). This is a product that I will buy again and again and will happily recommend to anyone." —Nicci Stephenson

    Get it from Amazon for $7.89.

    5. A doggy doormat to protect your floors from your pup's muddy paws. It's made of microfiber and 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).

    6. And a pack of plant-based, compostable dog wipes to ensure those paws are totally clean before you let your dog back inside. They're plant-based, deodorizing, and extra gentle!

    The dog wipes

    Promising review: "OK, so it might be a bit much to say that I’m ‘obsessed’ with dog wipes, right? Wrong, they are just that good. I’ve tried so many dog wipes but none compare to these. The wipes are extra damp (and stay that way even after opening) which means one wipe goes a long way. They also smell great, have a thick feel, and are hypoallergenic. I have a dog who has sensitive skin and we use these wipes after walks to get rid of allergies. Game-changer. Try them out you won’t be disappointed!" —I Only Shop Online

    Get a pack of 100 wipes from Amazon for $8.99 (available in unscented and lavender-scented).

    7. An extendable duster so you can easily reach your ceiling fan if you're constantly trying to conquer dust bunnies from a chair. No need to balance on your tippy toes — this'll take care of everything and give you peace of mind.

    Reviewer's picture of the extendable duster with Amazon five-star caption, "Goodbye, dust and cobwebs!"

    Promising review: "I didn’t think I could be overly impressed with a duster, but here I am! It’s very well-made…I’m surprised by the quality given it’s a very reasonable price. This cleans a lot better than other brands; one swipe and it reaches the highest points in my townhome. Don’t think about it — buy it." —Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    8. A mattress vacuum to help you get your bed as clean as possible. It'll suck up dust and dirt from your mattress, eliminate bacteria with a powerful UV light, and has a hot air outlet to rid your bed of dust mites.

    Promising review: "So I brought this originally for my son who gets really bad allergies to dust. At first we didn't know what was causing this until someone told me to check our beds and furniture. Even though we change our bed sheets regularly, there will be dust left over. So I decided to give this a try and they were right! I couldn't believe how many mites and how much dust there was. I took my time cleaning everyone's bed and our sofa which was easy to use and light. My son haven't had a reaction in a while for means this product works for my family!" —Lisa

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99.

    9. A carpet spot remover that'll make the messes and stains on your carpet from spills and accidents disappear before your eyes.

    Reviewer's before-and-after of stained carpet and then almost totally clean carpet

    Promising review: WOW! A must-have for any home. My carpet had some mystery stains that other stain remover products could not budge. I had resigned myself to never having them any better, until I found this product. It was very easy, spray it on, then put a paper towel on top and it disappears. Seriously! I was surprised at how big the bottle was, and you do not need to use lots when you apply, so this will last a very long time." —Malm

    Get it from Amazon for $11.69.

    10. A pack of toilet-cleaning gel that activates each time you flush so your bathroom stays cleaner for longer.

    Each application lasts about 12 days! Refills have six gel stamp uses, and each box has two refills.

    Promising review: "Love these. They keep the toilet clean. So you squeeze this thick, nice smelling gel stuff onto the inside of your toilet bowl using the dispenser that comes with — easy. It lasts a few weeks according to how often your toilet is flushed. Each time you flush, water runs over the gel, cleaning the bowl and dispensing a fresh scent. I've watched as, ahem, dirty stuff stuck on the inside of the bowl gets washed away as the cleaner works its magic. I've used these for years and highly recommend." —Johnny's girl

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $14.99.

    11. An orange-scented wood polish ready to get scratches and watermarks out of your wooden chairs, and make them as lustrous as they were the day you bought them!

    Reviewer's before-and-after photo of their scratched-up wooden chair and then new-looking, glossy chair

    Promising review: "This product exceeded expectations. Without even rubbing it in, it instantly refreshed the woodwork in my house, and in fact made the walnut stain look richer and better than it did when new. I tested it on a baseboard that was dusty and dirty (and which I should have cleaned first) and was surprised to see an immediate, excellent result. After cleaning the rest of the baseboard and then applying the orange oil, it all looks better than brand new and has not faded or evaporated over the last two weeks. The smell is pleasant and seems to improve the household mood. I highly recommend this product." —mmitchell

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    12. An automatic scrubbing brush to reveal the clean bathroom tile that's underneath all that built-up grout. It comes with a detachable oscillating grout brush to scrub the grime out of your tiles as quickly as possible.

    Reviewer's picture of half of their tile floor with dirty grout, and the other half totally clean

    Promising review: "Last night I was reborn. What is the cause of this renewed zest for life, you might ask? It was the use of the Rubbermaid Reveal Power Scrubber on my shower grout. It elevated a simple baking soda-and-water solution to alchemical proportions. My pink-tiled shower, the one that came with my scummy apartment, the one that never looks clean no matter how many hours of backbreaking labor I put in, now looks bright, clean, and full of promise. An otherwise disgusting and dated purely utilitarian part of my home is now art. TL;DR: This this is absolutely incredible." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.40.

    BEHOLD: the grout brush in action.

    13. A Hoover automatic carpet cleaner so you can deep-clean your rug or carpet by washing and vacuuming at the same time — take that, pet accidents and coffee spills!,

    It cleans your carpet *as* you vacuum like you would regularly — push to wash and pull back to dry. It comes with a two-in-one pet tool, sample bottle of cleaning solution, an 8-foot hose, and an accessory storage bag.

    Promising review: "This is the best carpet scrubber I’ve ever used, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. We have two dogs and a cat who all track in a lot of dirt, but it was no problem for this machine. The carpets look and feel new, and our carpet is old. The cleaner that came with the machine had a very subtle pleasant odor and it got the dirt out." —Lucy

    Get it from Amazon for $198.

    Just look at that bb go to WORK on dirt:

    Promising review: "I bought these with not much hope. I have been using them for a good two months now, and I want to say BUY IT! This is by far the best soap/cleaners/dish soap I have ever tried in my years buying soaps. I have sensitive skin and using any kind of chemical based soap causes irritation, especially if scented. But this has been the best soap I have ever used! I gave a hand soap bottle with refills to my mom, and she loves it so much that asked me to get her the rest of the products as well. You have two new lifelong customers now. Best of all, NO WASTE!" —Diana B.

    Get it from Blueland for $69.

    15. An elevated "neat feeder" pet bowl because try as they may, cats and dogs don't have thumbs to pick up stray pieces of kibble from the floor. This feeder will prevent messes from getting on your floors in the first place!

    Reviewer's picture of two of the feeding bowl sets

    The design is simple: two regular stainless-steel bowls sit in the plastic container so that nothing can fall on the floor.

    Promising review: "I have a 200-lb Neo Mastiff with lots of rolls and a whole lot of mess comes with that. I bought one for water and one for his food. After trying everything from deer feeders to the dog water fountains...this is the only thing that has controlled the mess. Food gets stuck in his flubber and would go everywhere and now I no longer have food in his water and the mess is a simple 30 seconds clean-up. Love, love, love." —April

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99 (available in two sizes and colors).

    16. 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 stovetops 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 $6.99.

    17. A pack of stainless steel-cleaning wipes to keep streaks and fingerprints off of your fridge and other appliances.

    Promising review: "OMG!!! I can’t believe I didn’t know about this product! I was starting to hate my stainless appliances because they looked so streaked and nasty! My niece gave me some to try and I can’t believe how good my appliances look now! They are beautiful and shining with my minimal effort!!" —Claudia Davis

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $13.99.

    18. An adjustable blind duster that'll tackle multiple blinds at once so you can check "dusting the living room" off of your to-do list in no time.

    Reviewer's picture of blind duster covered in dust

    It comes with five washable microfiber sleeves.

    Promising review: "OK I'll be honest, I ordered this because of the price. After reviewing several other options and having been disappointed with previous dusters I've had, I figured why spend more money on something that isn't going to work? So I ordered the least expensive option but WOW does this little tool rock!!!! It's very easy to use and clean. It does a fantastic job of cleaning and dusting the blinds and gets ALL of the crud off of them. My blinds haven't been this clean since the day they were first installed. VERY happy with purchase." —Amazon Shopper

    Get it from Amazon for $6.79 (available in two colors).

    19. A washable floor mat to cut down on how many messes you have to mop off the floor during your little one's mealtime. You can also use it to prevent messes during play and craft time!

    Reviewer's picture of the cartoon safari-themed floor mat under a high chair

    Promising review: "Not just a food/high chair mat! My mom once said she used to put a tarp under my sister and I when we were eating in the high chair and I thought she was weird until I had my own kids. This is a great idea!!!! It's good for every meal or just the messy ones. It’s plenty big, but not excessive. But what I like the best is the grip. It has the sticky like a bathroom rug or grippy slippers. It’s not super thick so it can be washed with other stuff and not take up too much room in the washer. It is made of good material keeping your floors/surfaces clean and allowing you to do a quick wipe off and use again without fully washing. But my favorite part of what I realized is this will be great for arts and crafts activities as well as picnics. Use it to cover your table so the markers or paints don’t get all over or use it for a play mat at the park. It’s way easier to wash than a blanket or picnic mat. Totally worth it!!!" —Ty & Kylee

    Get it from Amazon for $16.49+ (available in five colors and patterns).

    20. And a set of extra-large melamine sponges for when your child decides it's a good idea to take a permanent marker the coffee table. If it can clean that, it'll clean just about anything!

    Promising review: "This is the first time trying this sponge and it really is magic. My 2-year-old decided to draw in my table with permanent marker which wouldn’t come out easily. I had to scrub it a couple of times but I’m glad the sponge does work." —Jesty

    Get a pack of 20 from Amazon for $10.95.

    21. A hard water stain remover so you can finally make your shower head and faucets shine like new — because no one likes a reminder to clean the bathroom while they are already sitting in the bathtub.

    Reviewer's before-and-after picture of their shower faucet with hard water stains and then totally clean

    It can also work on toilets, tiles, shower doors, really anything that's been affected by hard water!

    Promising review: "I’m impressed. I thought the container was small for the price, but a little bit goes a long way. It takes a lot for me to review, but this is worth it. Five years in the hardest calcium filled water and this is the first cleaner to remove it. I’ve tried scrubbing, only to scratch the surface. Every time I fill the water and ice at the fridge, I’m impressed by the result. I could see this working best, right at first." —Joshua N. Dufek

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    Just look at how well it works on shower doors, too! Finally the bathroom you work so hard for 🙌.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    22. An attachable drill brush so you can get to WORK on stubborn tile marks, soap scum in the tub, and other areas that *usually* require a lot of elbow grease. This attachment works with any drill and will do the tough work for you!

    Reviewer holding their drill with the scrubbing brush attached, and their shower with grout and then totally clean

    The brush kit comes with three style of brushes: two for surface cleaning, and a rounder one for getting in the corners. The power drill is not included — but you can get a recommended one for $59.

    Promising review: "We have well water. We have terrible rust problems and I have never been able to scrub off the rust. Bought new sinks and tubs, and boom, the problem was still there. I couldn’t get it off once it would start. I bought Bar Keeper's Friend and this drill brush. I am so impressed. I thought we were stuck in the cycle of just having bad-looking things. Wow, it all looks brand new now! posted before and afters so you can see for yourself!" —Ashley Williams

    Get it from Amazon for 12.70+ (available in six brush types for different cleaning jobs).

    23. A set of microfiber cloths for anyone who aims for a streak-free finish on glassware, car washes, window cleaning, and more. These super-absorbent cloths have your back.


    Promising review: "I couldn't get my windows clean using cleaning solution, newsprint, and a lot of elbow grease. There were always streaks and dirt left behind. Enter these things. One quick cleaning, and I do mean quick, and my windows are now cleaner than any windows I've ever cleaned. It's simply amazing. We were all standing around in utter shock and delight before running around trying the cloths on other stuff: the TV, the picture glass, etc. I know it sounds corny, but I couldn't wait to get up this morning, because I woke up in the middle of the night excitedly thinking about trying it on the car today. They are truly, truly amazing." —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of eight from Amazon for $16.98.

    24. A roll of reusable bamboo towels that just may have you swearing-off paper towels for good. Each towel is reusable and can be used up to 120 times before discarding!

    The bamboo towel absorbing a spill

    They're made from sustainable, organic bamboo — one roll replaces 60 paper towel rolls. Plus they're machine-washable and SUPER strong!

    Promising review: "I am such a fan of these bamboo towels. I purchased six rolls a year and a half ago and just came back and purchased three additional rolls to eventually replace the ones that have been permanently damaged from staining, worn from over use or accidentally thrown away. I have so many left from my original order that I haven't even opened the three packs I just purchased, to be honest, I just want them on hand in case more get thrown away. As far as durability, these towels are thick enough to wet and reuse several times, and I find that using them sanitize/bleach combination keeps them from developing any stains. I would say that 95% of the towels that I still have are as white as the day that I purchased them, and I use them for everything in the kitchen, so they get very dirty." —Geekette

    Get a set of 20 from Amazon for $7.99.

    25. An all-natural tile and tub cleaner to remove mold, mildew, and rust with the power of tea tree oil and other plant-derived ingredients.

    Promising review: "I have an old shower/bathtub. I tried name brand shower cleaners and bleach to try and clean the soap scum off the tiles and tub. I had no luck and I would cough and get sick because of how strong the smell was. I thought I would try this to save my lungs. I sprayed my entire shower and left it for about 15 minutes. I came back and rinsed off the walls and they were shiny! I've never had such a clean shower. The smell is amazing and subtle. All I smell is tea tree and it didn't affect me at all. The price is also a good deal since the bottle is pretty large. It came with the sprayer separate and the bottle sealed so it wouldn't leak in the box. I highly recommend this." —Amber Erwin

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $12.99.

    26. A Shark steam mop reviewers say is totally worth it. It deep-cleans hardwood floors in half the time thanks to the combined powers of steam-cleaning and microfiber mopping.,

    It comes with three steam-level controls and a washable double-sided microfiber pad.

    Promising review: "OK, I admit it was an impulse buy. Wow, was I shocked when I used it the first time! Three dogs with a doggie door causes paw prints and dirt and it would take me up to three hours to really deep-clean my hardwood floors. From setup to cleaning, getting shiny floors took about 45 minutes! It was super easy and fast deep-cleaning!!! I really do believe whoever created this is a genius! Brilliant!" —Michelle

    Get it from Amazon for $119.99, and get two extra microfiber pads for $13.97.

    27. A self-charging robot vacuum I seriously need to add to my cart, as do you if you could use a self-cleaning friend to keep the floor clear of cat hair crumbs while you're off doing other stuff!

    Reviewer's picture of the vacuum filled with pet hair

    It boasts powerful suction at 1300Pa for up to 100 minutes. It *also* has infrared sensors for evading obstacles, drop-sensing tech to avoid falls, and automatically recharges. You'll get a remote control, charging base, AC power adapter, cleaning tool, an extra set of high-performance filters, four side brushes, and five cable ties.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this! Living with four roommates that don’t clean (two dogs, one cat, one lazy human), I needed some assistance in keeping my place neat and free of hair tumbleweeds. This thing is AMAZING. It’s sleek, quiet, and does an incredible job on my hard floors, rugs, and carpet. It’s very quiet, honestly I had it run at midnight last night with no interruptions to my sleep. The suction is great, and you’ll see the amazing little trails on the carpet that clean people like me live for. I even have a higher pile rug in my room that I was concerned about, but my little guy went right over it with no issues." —Megan

    Get it from Amazon for $199.99 (available in two colors).

    28. And a Squeegee broom that'll clean up pet hair, spills, and the unfortunate event of the cat knocking the aloe plant onto the couch again.

    Its natural rubber bristles attract pet hair on multiple surfaces, like carpet, tile, hardwood, and linoleum AND has a built-in rubber squeegee (aka the thing you use on your windshield) for cleaning windows and spills.

    Promising review: "I bought this broom two years ago and it is still going strong! I have four large breed dogs and we have fur EVERYWHERE! This works so, so well! I came back and purchased one for my neighbor and sent one to my favorite pet rescue down south. I am always amazed at what this picks up even after I just ran the vacuum. I also use it to get dust and cobwebs off the floors and ceilings. It truly is a super tool." —Roseann

    Get it from Amazon for $12.44.
