    1. A flexible cleaning brush that'll pull all of the hard-to-reach pieces of lint out of your dryer. I truly can't think of anything more satisfying, TBH.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Work perfectly for scrubbing the stuck lint out of the insides of your dryer. Everyone who owns a dryer should have these, they're basic safety equipment. Clean that lint, and reduce fire hazard and make the machine more efficient. They're long enough, strong enough, and just flexible enough without being too flexible." —Winged Wolf

    2. Washable microfiber mop pads you can use with your Swiffer WetJet and finally stop spending so much money on disposable options.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    One pad can last up to 100 washes and works on pretty much any surface, from wood to tile to stone.

    Promising review: "I wanted to reduce waste with disposable pads and I was pleasantly surprised by these. This photo [on the right] was AFTER I cleaned the floor with the disposable pad! I was able to get a super clean floor, spots were easier to clean up, and it didn’t sound like it was scratching my floors. This was easy to use, didn’t use more cleaner then the disposable pads, and got my floor cleaner. Definitely gonna buy more if the two I got ever wear out." —Riley

    3. A pumice cleaning stone that'll make your toilet actually sparkle like a porcelain throne.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Our toilets are old and have hard water stains in them. I clean them (admitantly less than) religiously, but I could never get the hard water stains off. So I thought I would give this rock on a stick a try, before I ended up smashing all our toilets in frustration and embarrassment. My rock on a stick arrived and, in the words of John Oliver, PRAISE BE. THIS THING IS A MIRACLE-WORKER. Requires very little scrubbing, my dang toilets look brand spanking new! Seriously! I am thinking about inviting the Queen over for a nice tinkle. Because that is how clean my toilets are." —octomeggo

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in packs of one or two).

    4. And a magnificent toilet cleaning gel stamp from Scrubbing Bubbles, so when you finally get around to thoroughly cleaning your bowl it'll do the heavy lifting until the next time you think to yourself "when was the last time I cleaned this thing?"

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Okay I was so confused when I opened this but honestly it’s easy to use and after I completely deep cleaned my bathroom, I tried one of these stamps on my toilet. I was sooo skeptical and was confused how they’d work but the gel solidifies and with every flush, suds wash through with the water and it really makes a fresh difference. Also the scent is light but really nice and fresh! I recommend these 100%! They’re super interesting but they do the job." —Janet

    5. Durable all-purpose wipes that'll help you clean a plethora of things like your car, makeup, adhesives, and permanent markers just to name a few. The best part? They're filled with vitamin E so you won't be left with dry, cracked hands.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Note that while these are great for messes and stains, they don't disinfect.

    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

    6. An all-natural tile and tub cleaner you can count on to effectively remove mold, mildew, and rust — just think of *how* satisfying your before and after photos will be.

    amazon.com

    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.

    7. An eight-pack of Mr. Clean Magic Erasers, so all you'll have to do is add water then start attacking all the dirty surfaces in your home.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    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

    Get a pack of eight from Amazon for $13.99.

    8. Bar Keepers Friend Cleanser and Polish that'll bring the grungy-looking tub in your apartment back to its true form — a clean one.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    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 Bar Keepers Friend to clean the sink up to a nearly new shine. Taking a look at the can, it's easy to find bunches of ways to use this stuff and each application is better than the last. Stainless-steel, porcelain, ceramic, copper, brass, fiberglass, Corian, chrome, and aluminum. See? Magic! Anyhow, I've used it in the sink, in the bathroom, to clean stainless steel pots and pans on a 17-year-old Revereware 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 $8.99.

    9. A sink cleaner to help you bring an array of surfaces back to prime condition — might I suggest starting with your neglected kitchen sink?

    amazon.com

    It also creates a shiny, water-repellent surface that water will just bead off.

    Promising review: "I've been looking for a cleaning product that would remove the stains from my acrylic sink without damaging the surface. I FOUND IT!! This product is unbelievable. Yes, it does require an investment of time and elbow grease, but the results were amazing. It removed stains that had been in my white acrylic sink for quite some time and left the surface squeaky clean, smooth and shiny, without a scratch. If you have an acrylic sink, this is the product for you. I HIGHLY recommend it!! I'm going to try it on my mother's enamel sink next, and definitely intend to buy Hope's Perfect Sink again. It DOES live up to its name!!" —Beckett

    Get it from Amazon for $3.97.

    10. A septic-safe, all-purpose cleaner you can count on to be the Jack to your Sally, the Bonnie to your Clyde, the Chewbacca to your Han Solo... you get the point. It'll be there for you throughout all of your cleaning endeavors.

    the bottle of sivi tidy co. cleaning solution next to a black dog
    Sivi Tidy Co

    This all-purpose cleaning solution can be used as a de-greaser and deodorizer on pretty much anything you own! Seriously, it can be used to clean carpets, clothing, stainless steel, floors, walls, and more. This fabulous product comes from a Black woman-owned small business run out of Florida — they create vegan, pet-safe, cruelty-free products and also donate a portion of sales to various charities.

    Promising review: "I am a repeat customer and I wanted to try this new product. OMG, so glad I did. I used it to mop my tile floors — it cleans so well and smells AMAZING. The scent lingers and you just feel so good while cleaning (who the heck enjoys cleaning?). I'm obsessed with this company." —Diane T.

    Get it from Sivi Tidy for $12+ (available in 16 or 32 oz and three scents).

    11. A garbage-disposal foaming cleaner to scrub away the stinky grime that builds up on the blades and in the pipes.

    Amazon

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $4.10

    12. A bottle of wood polish and conditioner that'll have your antiques, cabinets, and tables gleaming like you just had them delivered for the first time.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $11.36.

    13. A magical hair catcher to save your relationship and keep your shower looking cleaner than ever.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "No seriously — this is amazing. I have long hair and recently had a baby. It's a wonder I still have any hair based on the clumps I see falling out on a regular basis. This means the poor tub drain is getting clogged all the time, and we're spending ridiculous amounts of time trying to clear it out. I figured if this even worked to catch half of my hair then it would be worth its salt. Holy moly. When they say it catches every hair they aren't kidding. We clean it off about twice A WEEK! And when they say it's easy to clean, they are right again. A swipe with toilet paper and the hair blob comes right off. I've already told so many people about this product because I love it so much. Fantastic!!!" —sasamo

    Get it from Amazon for $12.37+ (available in six colors).

    14. A box of washing machine cleaning tablets that'll easily remove any odor-causing residue from inside your machine.

    amazon.com

    You can use this product on both front-load and top-load washing machines. Once you see how amazingly it works, you may also want to pick up the version that's designed for cleaning dishwashers.

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    15. A plant-based walnut scrubber sponge you can use to properly clean dirty dishes, counters, and more without having to fret about harmful toxins.

    16. A handheld Dirt Devil vacuum so lightweight you'll be able to clean and dance around your living room to Hilary Duff's "Come Clean" at the same time without fear of tripping over a cord.

    a red handheld dare devil vacuum
    amazon.com

    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 a 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

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99.

    17. A squeegee-broom contraption with an extendable handle, in case you've ever had the urge to rake the inevitable fallen hair from your carpet.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    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.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98.

    18. An enzyme-based spot cleaner that'll have your clothes looking like you just pulled them off the rack in a store.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    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 were 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

    Get it from Amazon for $11.88+ (available in 25 oz and 64 oz).

    19. Detergent designed specifically to clean your undies — it's anti-bacterial, anti-yeast, anti-mold, and will leave your unmentionables smelling like lemongrass. Not to mention the packaging looks like you'd find next to Barbie's washing machine.

    Amazon

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $15.74+ (available in packs of 24, 48, and 144).

    21. An OXO water-bottle-cleaning set that includes three brushes to easily get inside those hard-to-clean crevices AND has a 4.7-star rating on Amazon.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in two colors)

    22. A jetted-tub cleaner, so you'll never find yourself soaking in filth while trying to catch up on your me-time.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    I personally can vouch for how amazing this product is. I've watched with my own eyes as it magically clears out the gross-ness from my jetted tub's pipes. It's pretty disgusting and incredible.

    Promising review: "My wife told me we had to really clean what appeared to be 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 bathtub 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 product 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 your tub."Paul Southwick

    24. A ceramic cooktop cleaning kit that'll keep your stove looking brand new. Burnt-on grease? I don't know her.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    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

    25. A robot vacuum to clean your house for you, because you and I both know you're going to put it off ALL week.

    Bed Bath and Beyond, Paul Braga

    I have the Neato Botvac D7 and it has become a treasured possession for me and my husband. I don't know if it's just because we're home *all* the time or because we love it that much but we definitely treat it like our pet. You're instructed to give the vacuum a name (ours is Kevin) and can then set it to clean on specific days/times. It's super efficient and has done a great job cleaning hard-to-reach spots — and it'll send a notification to your phone if it gets stuck (see above). Good boy, Kevin.

    Get it from Amazon for $479.99 or Bed Bath & Beyond for $499.99.

    26. A squeegee that'll 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.

    a squeegee
    Amazon

    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.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    27. A microfiber spin mop and bucket with over 48,000 5-star reviews on Amazon, which is kinda wild because it's a MOP.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    This must be one hell of a mop, eh?

    Promising review: "Let me first say I HATE washing the floor with a regular mop. However, this is FANTASTIC, not only does it do a great job, the floors (both wood, and tiles) look great. Have been raving about this product since I first used it. No more do I hate washing floors, no more wringing out mop heads by hand ugh, this is wonderful. Put the mop head in spinner, spin it dry and just mop. No way could there be an easier and efficient way to clean my floors." —Diane

    28. A Drillbrush Power Scrubber that'll completely change the way you clean your bathroom.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    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. Note: You will need to attach the brushes to your own drill.

    Promising review: "The sounds crazy but this product has changed my life. We have extremely hard water and I have this ongoing battle with soap scum and hard water stains. This product combined with my cordless drill makes me a soap scum warrior! I spray a little cleaner, wait a couple minutes and then a quick scrub. AMAZING! The large, long attachment is PERFECT for scrubbing my oversized tub ... and I don't even have to get in it. I loved it so much I ordered one for my dad." —Red Herring

    30. Carpet shampoo to get rid of any stain or smell left behind by any adorable child or furry friend.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "After reading the reviews I thought I could at least try it, and holy smokes, this is a miracle cleaner!!! I think I have tried every cleaner on the market for pet stains and nothing ever really works on my carpets. Even if I get it off the top, it somehow comes back up. My crazy dogs hate the rain and they have one spot that they always go on when they decide they are not going outside. I have cleaned the spot probably 100 times. I cleaned this area one time with this cleaner and my spot steam cleaner and it is completely gone! The stain and smell are 100% gone, not just covered up like before, completely and absolutely gone. Miracle cleaner for sure!" —PLLane

    31. And a pet stain and odor remover, so when your pup gets a little too excited that you just got home and decides to pee all over your shoes, it's sort of OK.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    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

    33. A red wine stain remover, so the next time you jump while watching a horror movie, it won't matter that you spilled your vino all over your brand-new couch.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm sure if I knew more about science and chemistry, I'd understand how this stuff works — but since I don't, I'll just assume that it is MAGIC. If you care at all about your carpet, you need to have a bottle of this on standby. Over the years, we've used it to make numerous wine and red juice stains vanish before our eyes. The effect reminds me of the novelty shop disappearing ink gag from when I was a kid. Seriously, if you've never seen Wine Away in action, it's worth spilling a little Cabernet on your carpet just so you can see it vanish after a few spritzes. I honestly wouldn't believe how quickly this stuff works had I not seen it countless times with my own eyes." —DarthClem

    Get it from Amazon for $13.34.

    34. A pet-hair remover with a unique patented brush design, so you'll be able to invite guests to sit down without fear of them being covered head-to-toe in your dog's hair.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We live in a household that contains two humans, two dogs, and two cats. It's a real Noah's Ark furnished with a black sectional couch. Our dogs absolutely hate the vacuum. So much so they will attack the cleaner head with their vicious bite even before we power it on. This makes the task of cleaning our couch extremely unpleasant and nearly impossible. Thanks to Chom Chom, we no longer have this problem! With a simple, quick, SOUNDLESS sweep, we're able to keep our couch pet hair–free in blissful peace.

    Promising review: "Finished using it five minutes ago and it’s the best! My husband uses a Stanley thermos daily to take coffee to work. He tries to remember to rinse it out every day, but that doesn’t always happen. I got the package today, filled the thermos with water, dropped in a tablet, and let it sit. I promptly forgot about it for a few hours. Initially, I was disappointed when I dumped the water, as it was barely tinged brown. Then I put fresh water in, covered the top, shook it, and OMG. The crap that came out was disgusting, yet fascinating. I looked in the thermos and saw almost nothing but sparkly silver! There was a little crud left in the top third of the thermos, but it’s a really tall one, so I wasn’t surprised. Got the bottle brush, swished twice, and bam! All clean! No fumes, no smell, no nothing, just clean. I used to struggle cleaning it with baking soda, vinegar, the brush, soap, and elbow grease. Screw that. I will forever use only these tablets! Here’s to better tasting (and way less gross) coffee!" —BranchingOut
