    1. 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

    2. 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

    3. An all-purpose cleaner featuring the scents of frankincense and myrrh that are said to be grounding and clearing. Why not bring all the good vibes you can into your home?

    4. 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

    5. 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

    6. A makeup brush-cleansing shampoo, because — shocker — you need to clean those!

    Amazon, Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    After reading about how necessary it is to actually clean your makeup brushes (I know, I KNOW, I should’ve been doing this for years) I was super grossed out and motivated to order the right supplies to do the job. I’ve heard good things about Ecotools makeup brush-cleansing shampoo so I figured I’d start there. The Amazon listing also suggested buying a silicone makeup brush cleaning pad to go with it so I figured... why not? Well, now I’m patting myself on the back because ordering these two items was a GAME-CHANGER!

    I could not believe how much residue came off my brushes in just one cleaning. You only need to use a little dab of the shampoo, so one bottle will definitely last a long time. The silicone pad made it super easy to thoroughly lather the brushes without leaving my bathroom sink in shambles. I also loved how each section was labeled with which brush should be cleaned in each area. My brushes look brand new! Don’t hesitate like I did — buy both the shampoo and the mat ASAP.

    7. 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. I recently moved into a new home and ran it through the old washing machine that was left in the house (beggar's can't be choosers!) and it came out nice and clean.

    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

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

    9. A cleaning pen so all of your jewels (whether they're real or not) will be *so* sparkly everyone will wonder where you got 'em from.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This seemingly average little cleaning pen is filled with a high-performance formula that cleans jewelry like nothing I've ever experienced. It contains micro-fine cleansers, polishing agents, and a polymer that will make your gems so shiny they'll nearly blind you. I've used it on my diamond rings, but it also works wonders on my cubic zirconia earrings. Check out my full Connoisseurs 1050 Diamond Dazzle Stick review.

    Promising review: "The center stone of my ring (an oval white sapphire) has been cloudy since shortly after I got it. I have to use a lot of hand sanitizer at work, which gets under the stone. This product was easy to use. The little brush gets under the stone really well (much better than a toothbrush). My ring looks like new." —FintanCat

    Get it from Amazon for $6.39.

    10. All-natural biodegradable cleaning tablets that'll remove tough stains and odors from your favorite reusable water bottle — no more "does this water taste weird?" moments.

    amazon.com

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $8+ (available in packs of 12 or 36).

    11. A pet-hair remover with a unique patented brush design, so you'll be able to sit down without fear of 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. This tool does an amazing job picking up pet hair but not so much with crumbs. We were so impressed, we gifted these as Christmas presents for all of our pet-loving friends." —Magpie

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    12. Laundry detergent from Love Home and Planet that'll probably leave you lingering to inhale your warm, fresh-from-the-dryer towels for a bit longer.

    I use this product to soak my cloth face masks and now they smell AMAZING — a great decision, if I do say so myself.

    Promising review: "I've been using the same big brand laundry detergent for years but I wanted to try out something new. WOW!! It makes my clothes smell so nice and feel so soft. The majority of my clothes I hang dry and my room smelled so fresh and amazing while my clothes were drying. If you're hesitant, just try it out! I think you'll be pleasantly surprised." —gorl

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 or Subscribe & Save for $12.34 (available in three scents).

    13. 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

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    14. 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

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    15. 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 it next to Barbie's washing machine.

    16. 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.

    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

    Get two from Amazon for $14.95.

    17. 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?"

    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 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

    18. A microfiber spin mop and bucket with over 54K 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: "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.

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    19. 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. 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

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in six styles).

    20. A compact washing machine you'll tell everyone you know about because it'll save you tons of quarters and time spent at a laundromat.

    ....and it'll prevent you from having to wash your undies in the bathtub like I did during peak quarantine last year.

    Promising review: "I'm a college student taking fifteen science credits and working part-time as a tutor. My days generally go from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. My weekends have become homework/studying marathons. I often sit down at the start of each week and schedule my showers. Livin' the dream. So as a result, I hadn't done laundry in nearly three months. The clothes were piling up. So many clothes. So many. I've only had this guy for 48 hours, but he's changed my life. The clothes are clean and hanging in my closet where they belong. He's probably an angel. I have named him Wally." —Kie

    21. 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.

    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.

    22. A fabric shaver that'll keep everything from sweaters to furniture looking fresh and lint-free.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "So I didn't think it through when I threw some dark shirts and sweaters in the wash with a couple of light towels. They came out with all those fuzzies. I ordered one of these based on the price and average customer review and I can see why this was rated so high. Takes two AA batteries and is very comfortable to hold. Since it's so portable, I just sat on the couch to watch TV and shaved two shirts and a pair of cottony exercise pants while watching tTVv. I probably would have never worn these items (at least not outside the house!) again if it wasn't for this great little gadget." —Paula Nelson

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in five colors and two styles).

    23. An all-in-one vacuum and mop to clean your house for you, because you and I both know you're going to put it off ALL week.

    the vacuum/mop
    Amazon

    My parents bit the bullet and brought a robo-vac into their home. They were hesitant about the new tech, but after giving it a go and seeing how thorough this lil' machine was they were over the moon. My mom especially loves how it has the ability to not only vacuum, but mop the entire house as well. It's magical.

    Promising review: "Pricey but well worth it. My husband uses a push-style broom on our hardwood floors about four times a week. He tries hard but I felt like my feet were always picking up dirt. This little guy did about 2,000 square feet of our home in no time with battery to spare. My floors feel cleaner then ever. Still clean today. Thought we would need to run the bot every day but I’m thinking every other day will be plenty. Use the app!!! We did our research and we are incredibly impressed with this robot. We also used on suction only and normal power. No need for Max." —Heather L Stahl

    Get it from Amazon for $349.99.

    24. Or a slim stick vacuum, in case you're a little weary about having a ~robot~ in your house.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    When they're not letting the robot vacuum handle things, you can find my parents scurrying around the house with this Tineco vacuum. It's very lightweight, easy to maneuver, and does exactly what it's supposed to! My mom loves that it has a button to empty the dust bin right over the garbage can.

    Promising review: "I vacuumed the day after I had a professional housekeeping service come into my home and LOOK at the stuff this thing picked up! I only did downstairs, too. I am shocked. I did NOT expect this kind of performance. - It looks hi-tech but is easy to use. Batteries give you about 30 minutes apiece, which is a little better than what they advertised. Tiny crumbs on my wood floors are easily picked up and it pivots like nothing I've ever used before. In comparison to my Shark, it is extremely lightweight and oh what a difference a cordless unit makes!!! No more bending over to get the pesky cord out of the way. I RARELY write reviews but this vacuum is fabulous!" —G. Sheppard

    Get it from Amazon for $259.99.

    25. 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.

    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.

    26. 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

    Since all my friends do these days is compare cleaning products, I have more insight about daily-use cleaners than ever! My friend has been using Schmidt's vinegar cleaner and is a big fan!

    28. 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: "My wife and I are both very active and have plenty of water bottles for different supplements and water. These have been very handy to clean straws and mouthpieces on all of our water bottles or shaker bottles. The bigger wand is good to get down to the bottom of the bottle of a container to clean any residual residue. The long skinny cleaner is perfect for straws and mouthpieces where you need to suction the water out of the bottle. And the U-shaped cleaner is very nice to clean the Inside of the lids where they screw onto the bottle. I also use the U-shaped cleaner to clean my ninja blender travel cups. Then we were are done cleaning just throw them in the dish washer!" —Brannon

    29. An ultrasonic jewelry-cleaning machine to (gently) shake, rattle, and roll your favorite silver or gold pieces into shiny perfection.

    amazon.com

    My husband gifted me this cleaner and I'm a huge fan. All you have to do is add a little dish soap and water to the machine, place your jewelry into the basket, and set the timer. Before you know it your fave necklace looks new again!

    Promising review: "I've had it for two weeks now, and cleaned all of my jewelry twice. Both times I realized how gross jewelry gets when I wear it every day. This machine gets it so sparkly again in just a couple of minutes, with just water and ultrasonic waves, no nasty chemicals." —Infractus

    30. A stainless-steel cleaner that'll make your appliances so shiny you won't be able to stop staring at your own reflection in them (spoiler: you look GOOD!).

    amazon.com

    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

    31. A jetted-tub cleaner, you can use to assure you never find yourself soaking in filth while trying to catch up on your me-time.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This product has changed my cleaning process FOREVER. It's extremely satisfying, disgusting, and actually works. It removes gunk you didn't even know EXISTED. Run, don't walk, to order this.

    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 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

    I have one of these bad boys and can validate that it is SO easy to use. I pop my phone into it when I get in the shower and click the lil' button on the front to start the cleaning process. You can also charge your phone while it's inside the machine. Fellow germaphobes — you can thank me later.

    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

    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

    36. A stain remover you can rely on to cling to rust like your dog clings to you the minute they see you packing a suitcase.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    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

    37. 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.

    38. Granite cleaner that'll leave your counters feeling smooth as a baby's bottom, even after the messiest of meal preps.

    Amazon

    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: "These wipes work great! Gets rid of grime and leaves a nice shine. I wouldn’t use any other brand now. Additionally, the wipes don’t fall apart." —Donna Newton

    39. A 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.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    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." —Andrea Garcia

    40. And a FlexiSnake tool you'll watch remove so much gunk and hair from your drains you could probably make a wig with it (but plz, don't).

    Amazon, amazon.com

    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
