TBH, I find it extremely soothing. There's something
so satisfying about efficiently cleaning the grout in my bathroom, you feel me? If you're on my level, then you'll definitely be all in on these cleaning product suggestions.
Promising review: "I hate washing my brushes, I've always done it by hand and it's always caused the big fluffy powder brushes to feel rougher or become matted no matter how hard I try to reshape them. I got this solution and used it with a makeup brush spinner (I used the I also have insanely sensitive skin and most any soap I put on a brush will cause me to breakout when I use it later, no matter how well I typically rinse it. But I really think that this cleaner and the brush spinner worked great and I haven't had any sensitive bumps on my skin since using them." — Mevolic one here, and I couldn't BELIEVE how amazing my brushes were afterwards!

Price: $4.79+ (available in a pack of two or as cleansing cloths)
pet stain and odor remover, so when your furry friend gets a little too excited that you just got home and decides to pee all over your shoes, it's sort of OK.
Pet parents, are you reading this? We gotta get this!
Promising review: "This stuff works sooooo well. I have tried many other brands of pet stain remover, and this one is definitely the best. I have two indoor cats with hairball issues; they are often spitting up hairballs, or stomach acid only before or after the passing of the hairball. (Sorry for the TMI.) Of course, they only want to do this on the carpet and rugs. This stain remover effectively removes the bodily fluid, hairball, etc., with a nice, fresh minty scent and no sticky residue. I keep a bottle upstairs and downstairs so I don't have to go hunting for it during those 2 a.m. hairball vomiting sessions (because, of course, that's the only time they want to throw up)." — Heather Coburn-Schill
This must be one hell of a mop, eh?
Promising review: "Okay, so ever since finding this mop on Amazon, I've been excited to try it. In a market of subpar household cleaning devices, this thing ROCKS! I love this mop so much, I mopped my whole house twice in a row. This mop picks up everything off the floor. Even pebbles that can be left on the floor in corners and pet hair. This mop picks up everything! The wringer is PERFECT. I do a two-step process where I first start by getting the floor sopping wet, then I go back through with the mop as dry as I can get it. My floors are completely dry in about five minutes. LOVE LOVE LOVE! Please buy this mop!" — Dillon B.
Heavy-duty cleaning wipes, perfect for removing stains like grease, oil, tar, permanent marker, and lipstick, as well as residue left by adhesives and decals.
Promising review: "These towels are awesome for so many things. They are large and very sturdy, so they work well for household cleaning. The real benefit for me, though, is having a wipe that works for things like the grill, the oven, the dashboard of my car, muddy shoes, chairs and umbrellas that go to soccer games and practices, and lawn furniture. I frequently wipe something down, rinse the towel, and wipe again. The wipes are heavy enough to go through three to four rinses and wipes and still hold up. The smell is mild and doesn't linger on my hands or what I've wiped down. I use these almost daily, so the 90-count canister lasts about three months and the last towel is never dried out when I get to it. The lid closes securely, yet is easy to open and the towels dispense easily through the opening without getting bunched up. Because the canister is heavier than most, and the lid fits well, it's easy to throw one of these in the trunk or cargo area and I don't worry about it leaking. The canister (minus the lid) is recyclable when the towels are gone — an added bonus." — COMom
Price: $7.99+ (available in a canister of 40 or 90)
You can use this product on both front-load and top-load washing machines.
Promising review: "I have been using bleach to clean my machine for some time but decided to give this a try a few months ago. My very first clean with Affresh left me surprised and delighted, for not only did it clean my machine, it eliminated the nasty smell that always transferred to my clothes thanks to a buildup of mold I didn't even know about. Every month now, I toss a tablet into the drum and let it work its magic. Now my machine is cleaner than ever, and my clothes always smell wonderfully fresh. I highly recommend this to everyone." — Kelli Crawford
Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn-out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs that jumped up and scratched places, we also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were, and several other areas that were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magic eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let it sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand new. I'm buying a couple more so we can finish our cabinets and wood paneling. We're so glad we found this product." — Kris
Price: $8.48+ (available in 8 oz, 16 oz, and 128 oz)
I'm tired of scrubbing my grout for hours! I've had my eye on this cleaning tool for some time now, and I've officially decided I need to get it this weekend. Note: You will need to attach the brushes to your own drill.
Promising review: "I have NO idea why this product would ever have less than a five-star review. It is a great brush set — I used all three in an effort to get some mildew stains off the grout in my shower. NOTHING worked, but a bit of Soft Scrub (bleach) and these brushes worked like a charm! I then used the larger brush on the floor of the shower, and to remove some soap scum from the glass shower doors. WOW! Where has this been all my life?! Excellent product, works like it should in conjunction with your power drill." — SomeGirl
Price: $13.95+ (available in six colors)
OxiClean stain remover, a tried-and-true classic formula you can use to clean your clothes, carpets, and furniture.
Promising review: "I feel fortunate to have found the 'powers' of OxiClean products in late 1980s. It was advertised on a TV infomercial and I was lured in by the promises of what it could do for carpets. I am hooked to this day by its results. Believe it or not, I recall the morning I first tried it. I ran upstairs and woke my husband with excitement. We had tried most every carpet cleaner on the market with no luck. It was amazing, cleaning stains that were in the carpet when we bought the home a year before.
It works equally well on clothes and in the laundry. Bleach WAS my go-to on whites prior to, but reduced their life expectancy and would yellow over time.
I was never happy with any stain-removing product for my colors until I found OxiClean. I haven't had the need to try any other in almost 30 years now." — Lady in Midlo
Price: $12.98+ (available in three sizes)
squeegee that will prevent water marks from drying on your glass shower door and give you the opportunity to pretend you're a badass window cleaner in a massive skyscraper.
I have this exact squeegee and it really does a fantastic job at keeping my shower squeaky clean.
Promising review: "The large suction cup that holds this squeegee in the shower works perfectly. And unlike many metal squeegees, this one is very lightweight, so it will not pull itself off the wall. The blade is strong enough to remove water from my shower doors, and wide enough to allow me to get each door in three easy swipes. For the longest time I resisted purchasing a squeegee, but realized that constantly scrubbing my shower doors to remove soap buildup is far too time-consuming. Using this squeegee does not prevent me from having to clean my shower, but it does allow me to take more time between cleans, as this little device alleviates most of the buildup that would occur. Overall, the squeegee does what it is intended to do — keep my glass shower doors looking clean and soap-scum-free." — Steven M.
steam mop, aka a germaphobe's dream because it sanitizes floors and removes tough stains at the same time.
6,944 five-star reviews on Amazon, you know this mop is special. Promising review: "We have really stubborn tile and grout that attracts dirt and stains easily — this has totally cleaned that tile. We have five cats (yes, five) and it has cleaned up hair and litter. If you have cats you know all about that litter that sticks to floors outside the litter box like the plague — yeah, this cleans that up!! I KNOW, CRAZY!!! This mop was well worth waiting all weekend for. Before this machine I was literally cleaning my floors on my hands and knees just to get a great clean. I am 100000000000000% glad I bought this steam mop and it’s way more then a steam mop, it’s a miracle worker!!!!" — melissa schloemer
Price: $79.99+ (available in three colors and six styles/bundles)
Promising review: "We, regrettably, had not properly cleaned our glass stove top for six months. We’d wipe and clean with generic products we had, but nothing removed the deep stains. It was not properly maintained by the previous tenants either, so I wasn’t hopeful we’d get it back to its original appearance. It looked horrible. My mom recommended this product to me and she uses it faithfully. With help of the razor, this product completely transformed our stove top. It looks like it was just installed. I’m so happy and relieved. This will be a must-have item in our kitchen for years to come." — Amazon Customer
garbage-disposal foaming cleaner to scrub away the stinky grime that builds up on the blades and in the pipes.
Look at that foam go!
Promising review: "It seems counterintuitive to put a little packet down your garbage disposal to clean it, but this does actually seem to work, at least for getting out weird smells that baking soda and vinegar don't really touch. I scrub the sink down first, especially around the garbage disposal area, rinse it down, and then just follow the directions on the package. I have used it with single, large-size sinks and with double sinks — only difference is that the double sink will have blue cleaning foam rise up the drain, which you rinse away when the disposal sounds clear again. I have tried the foaming cleaner in a can, but unfortunately it stopped coming out of the can about 10% of the way through. Went back to this tried-and-true." — KS
Price: $7.13+ (also available in a pack of two)
water-bottle-cleaning set that includes three brushes to easily get inside those hard-to-clean crevices AND has a 4.8-star rating on Amazon.
Promising review: "Finally, a long-handled brush that's not overly wide. I have a different 'water bottle' brush that is great, but the handle is so wide, I can't get it all the way into some bottles. This brush, not a problem. Plus, the thin brush works great for thick reusable straws (I have a set of steel straws and this cleans them well). And the rounded brush works great to scrub in the threads of the bottle lids (always a place crud gets trapped in). Good price, and so far, great brushes." — SammnIAmToo
An eight-pack of
Mr. Clean Magic Erasers, so all you have to do is add water then start attacking all the dirty surfaces in your home.
Sing it with meeee: 🎶 Mr Clean will clean your whole house and every room that's in itttttt 🎶.
Promising review: "I make sure we keep plenty of the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Cleaning Pads on hand. It is not a sponge. It is a dirt and grime lifter, and cleans surfaces like greasy stove tops, grayish grout, and slimy sink scum like nothing else. They do the jobs that a sponge can't. The evidence of its effectiveness is how quickly the pad loads up with hidden filth including lint, dust, and cat hair. The sponge sees dirt better than my eyes do, and for this, I trust Mr. Clean to get my surfaces sparkling and free from debris. If you use them as much as I do, you will go through a few of these Magic Erasers a week, but they're worth their muscle and have become an essential household helper." — Kort
This plant-based cleaner will remove streaks, smudges, and fingerprints from all stainless steel surfaces — sounds very therapeutic to me!
Promising review: "THIS Therapy Premium Stainless Steel Cleaner is AMAZING. New dishwasher and and a hungry dog are NOT compatible! Our small dog, 12 pounds, had a habit of stretching up her front paws and scratching her nails on the dishwasher while her food was prepared. Not even days had gone by and the new dishwasher had little thin claw scratches all down the front. I had stopped her by placing a footstool to block her, but other family members had not, despite my instructions. I tried several cleaners and had resigned to having a scratched appliance. But ONE try with the Therapy cleaner — yes, a *miracle*. The scratches cannot be seen at all — polished right out of sight. The dishwasher looks even better than when fresh out of the box — it is gleaming. I eagerly shared the success with my kitchen remodeler, who installs many appliances, and I hope others can restore their stainless products. Try it!" — L. Peterson
jetted-tub cleaner, so you'll never find yourself soaking in filth while trying to catch up on your me-time.
Been there, no thanks.
Promising review: "My wife told me we had to really clean what appeared to a clean tub. We moved into a house where the previous home owners were not the best cleaners. She had me get this product based on reviews. My one complaint is the label needs to be bigger. OH YUK is not enough. OH YUK YOU MIGHT BARF might be better. I think someone had a bowel movement in my bath tub plumbing and this is the only product that takes it out. It appears we have seven years of crud in the pipes. The feces colored film that this products gets out of your pipes will make you a believer. The first use it released so much toot film that we felt like we needed to have another round of cleaning. After losing a bet I had to stick my hand in the water to drain it. Wiping off all the released film we filled the tub again. Just turning the jets the water seemed to be clear. However before I was going to ever get into this thing I wanted to do a second round of YUK treatment. Once again in full force it appeared that someone had the squirts in tub as sludge came flowing out of the pipes. We're going to have to run this a few times before we use the tub. Remember those pink tablets that you use to get in grade school to show you all the plaque that was on your teeth..... The product is like that for you tub." — Paul Southwick
A container of
mink oil that will condition and waterproof any leather products you own — never worry about your fave handbag or boots getting worn-looking again!
Promising review: "I bought very expensive leather boots over four years ago. Of course, with time, the daily winter wear has started to take a toll...scuffing, scratches, discoloration. I bought this product because I remembered that my grandfather used to use this brand to weather-proof his leather products years ago. Im not disappointed at all. I will most definitely stick to this product for years to come. I used leather cleaner to clean my boots and then used this mink oil (two layers) to hydrate them. They are BEAUTIFUL! They look as if I just bought them. So happy!" — Amazon Customer
24-pack of microfiber cleaning cloths, so you'll forever be ready to fight the good fight against dirt and grime.
You can NEVER have too many good microfiber cloths, amiright?
Promising review: "I needed a replacement for my kitchen rags/towels that were wearing out. I had read about the microfiber material and its absorbency. These have worked out very well. I use them in the kitchen and for cleaning jobs everywhere including the bathroom. I use the white ones for the bathroom and other cleaning jobs, and the colored ones for the kitchen. They work incredibly well and when they start to wear out they are cheap enough that I just throw them away and get a new one. This is a good product at an inexpensive price." — Henry Guinn
Price: $12.81+ (available in packs of 24, 36, 48, and 144)
You can also use it on carpets, bedding, cloth diapers, etc.
Promising review: "I feel like you won't believe what I'm about to write, because I can't believe it myself. On New Year's Eve, my husband and I had an epic fail. We dropped a glass of red wine in our bedroom, and as if it was a gymnast, the glass tumbled three times before crashing on the ground. Red wine flew all over the carpet, bedding, and my favorite pale yellow upholstered bench at the end of our bed. We stood there in shock, and then I remembered I had just bought Puracy. After spraying the better part of a bottle on various linens, our carpet, and my pale yellow bench, IT LOOKS LIKE THE EPIC WINE FAIL OF 2016 NEVER HAPPENED. It's seriously like magic. I still can't believe my eyes and really wish I took before-and-after photos. Worth every penny!!!!! It's now my go-to stain remover!!" — Amazon Customer
Price: $9.99+ (available in 4 oz, 25 oz, and 64 oz)
Swiffer WetJet, essential for anyone who has wood floors and not a lot of available storage space but doesn't want to live like a slob.
I don't have a lot of storage space in my apartment, but this lovely Swiffer is so thin it can be easily stored pretty much anywhere.
Promising review: "If you have hardwood floors, get a Swiffer! We spent years sweeping and then mopping (we have a cat so the floors do not look pretty all the time) and this cuts our clean time. I love the starter kit, too, because it's a great way to test if it is for you. The pads last a pretty good amount of time, too, and the cleaning solution lasts even longer because the Swiffer uses so little. We kept our mop and broom for little things, but this is perfect if you want your floors to look shiny, dry fast, and also get done in little time!" — Leah Cameron
stain remover that clings to rust like your dog clings to you the minute they see you packing a suitcase.
You won't believe how efficient this product is for getting rid of rust on any and all surfaces.
Promising review: "We have a VERY high iron concentration in our well water at home and it ends up slowly turning our shower, sink, and toilet a deep orange color over time. Have tried a ton of products to try to fix this issue but nothing works nearly as well as this product. Smells absolutely terrible but works AMAZING. A few spritzes of this and you can watch the orange dissolve away before your eyes. I use this formula for the sink and inside of the shower and use the powder formula for inside the toilet as that seems to work better there. As stated earlier, the smell is awful and lingers until you rinse everything down so definitely have windows open when using this product." — Samantha
Price: $4.98+ (available in 8 oz, 12oz, 16 oz, and 24 oz).
FlexiSnake tool that will remove so much gunk and hair from your drains you could probably make a wig with it (but plz, don't).
Aaaand I'm gagging.
Promising review: "I bought one of these due to the testimonial reviews and because thanks to my six kids, we have slow drains. So I break it out on a Saturday night and started with my bathroom sink. OH MY GOSH! Disgustingly amazing. In two seconds I pulled out a massive hair/soap clog. It was truly amazing and so gross! I went to work on the other bathroom drains and they weren't nearly as amazing or as quick, but I pulled a bunch of dried hair out of the kids' tub. So after five drains, I had my fun. I've spent a small fortune on Drano-type products that never seem to work. I won't buy them again. I was even so amazed I shared the nasty pic on Facebook and didn't think twice about somebody judging me. Get this." — Jennifer R. Little
handheld vacuum so lightweight you'll be able to clean and dance around your living room to "Thank U, Next" at the same time.
Promising review: "This is such a wonderful vacuum! The fact that it is handheld makes it very easy to store and easy to use. We have an 600-square-foot studio with all wood floors and it doesn't take more than 10 minutes to vacuum the entire apartment. The crevice tool is incredibly useful for nooks and crannies that gather dust, and the attachable nozzle has been great for vacuuming our rug. We have a delicate faux sheepskin rug that really shouldn't be vacuumed using such a powerful tool, but with the nozzle it's much more manageable and doesn't cause too much shedding. The filter is very easy to clean, though fills up pretty quickly, so make sure to clean it more frequently than not! Very happy with this purchase — it has made cleaning the apartment so much easier!" — Sting
Clorox ToiletWand that you can use then toss away — say SEE YA to that gross toilet brush hiding in the corner of your bathroom.
Promising review: "Finally! Something that actually works! The idea of a reusable toilet cleaning brush is just DISGUSTING! Not to mention when your 2-year-old comes running through the house singing into it!!! AHHHH!!!! Enter the disposable toilet wand! Not only is it MUCH more hygienic than keeping and storing a brush used for scrubbing poop, but I no longer have to worry about my little ones getting into it! Whew! This stuff does a wonderful job, and is so simple and easy to use I’ve even been able to teach hubby! Wonders never cease!" — Gobius
Price: $8.79+ (available in packs of one, two, four, or six)
squeegee-broom contraption with an extendable handle, in case you've ever had the urge to rake the inevitable fallen hair from your carpet.
What? Like I'm the only one who finds their own hair all over the house?
Promising review: "This thing just plain works. We got a mature golden retriever last year and were told he didn't shed. Then in the spring he started shedding badly. We were tired of hair everywhere and somehow I realized that dragging my shoe across the carpet balled the hair up. I found this product on a whim one day and knew it had to be better than my shoe! I ordered it and it was tough at first. The bristles pulled the hair up but then caught the tufts and spread them around. I found that using short quick strokes with the rake turned upside down got the best results. The backside is more like a squeegee and helps pull the hair up in long rolls and keeps the hair in one big pile." — Nick V.
Granite cleaner that will leave your counters feeling smooth as a baby's bottom even after the messiest of meal preps.
Every night before she goes to sleep my mom runs her hand along her granite counters. If they don't pass the test, she breaks out these wipes and goes to town making sure there is no leftover residue from whatever was cooked that day. This product is legit.
Promising review: "I have tried a lot of granite cleaners but this stuff is outstanding! It’s the best I have used so far. It cleans my granite perfectly and I don’t get that slick or greasy feel to them. Along with that, no streaks. Apply the product, let it set for about 19 seconds, wipe down with towel, and that’s it. It leaves a nice shine on my countertops but it’s not like you're applying a top coat every time." — Frank
Price: $7.99+ (available as wipes or 24 oz spray)
cordless vacuum, so you don't have to worry about tripping over a pesky cord while trying to get your damn floors clean.
Amazon, Yi Yang / BuzzFeed
I got this Dyson vacuum for Christmas and it has changed my life. It cleans so many corners I wasn't able to reach before. It is also super light, making it easier than ever to clean my entire apartment without breaking a sweat.
Promising review: "This is an amazing device. The suction is as good as my old, corded Dyson (from 2006). It's light. The fact that it's cordless is awesome — I didn't realize how much fighting with the cord on my old vacuum contributed to making the chore of cleaning onerous. The battery lasts in normal cleaning mode more than long enough to do our entire downstairs, over 2,000 square feet. Because it only runs when you pull the trigger, you're not wasting battery life when you move from room to room, so the total time I spend cleaning is longer than the battery life. The attachment for stairs is excellent. It works equally well on hardwood floors and carpet." — Max G.

special cloth that will leave your windows so clean birds will attempt to fly into your house. (Ouch! Be careful, guys!)
This cloth is made with a waffle weave that magically removes dirt without leaving any streaks — it's amazing.
Promising review: "I would recommend this product to everyone. For years, I've tried different methods to get the inside car windows streak and grease free, with moderate success. One use of this product, and my car windows are beautifully clear. I tried it on the household mirrors and other places I would use a glass cleaner, and again, wonderfully clear and streak-free. My Windex days are over." — Dr. Pepper
Price: $14.97 for a set of two
cleaning spray made just for your car, so the next time you spill your coffee all over yourself or your kid dumps their soda in between the seats, you'll still be covered.
Car Guys' Super Cleaner can be used on upholstery, canvas, leather, vinyl, plastic,
and rubber. Promising review: "I have used every product that you can find on the shelves of your local store. When I sprayed the cleaner on the light beige interior of a 25-plus-year-old car, the interior turned to its original color. After years of detailing, I had assumed at this point, the color was set and that's it — not with this stuff. While cleaning it I literally said out loud, 'No way, no way,' because I was in disbelief at how amazing it worked, and the results are in the compliments I receive from friends." — Amazon Customer
Price: $16.99+ (available in 18 oz or 128 oz)
robot vacuum, because you deserve to have a product that cleans your home while you binge-watch Tidying Up With Marie Kondo.
The future has arrived, my friends.
Promising review: "I've been in the market for a robovac for quite some, and after a recent back surgery vacuuming manually wasn't easy. I purchased this vacuum and have been very pleased with it. Its slim design gets under the dressers, beds, other furniture, and all the tight spaces that I couldn't get to with an upright vacuum cleaner. This makes a very low sound while in use, and honestly, I don't even realize it's operating, as the sound is pleasant (not loud at all). The price is right, and replacement filters are very inexpensive." — iTch
Price: $224+ (available in black or white)
