    39 Products To Help You Clean All The Things You'd Rather Not Clean

    You don't have to be Mr. Clean to make sure everything in your home is in tip-top shape.

    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: "Works 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 the 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. A wet/dry vacuum you can use to literally suck up anything from nails and water to bits of wood and leaves. You name it, it can be cleaned up with this vac.

    amazon.com

    My husband and I recently bought our first home and it has been quite the learning experience. Luckily my father-in-law has a plethora of tools, such as this vacuum, that made most of our DIYs a breeze. After ripping up a carpet and removing all the staples that had been holding it down, I was amazed we were able to use this machine to clean all the debris up in one swipe.

    Promising review: "I had a 40-year-old Craftsman garage vacuum that finally broke, I was not expecting a modern one to perform as well as the old one however this new one is better in every way. The hose holds its shape under the vacuum, the wheels turn easily allowing it to move freely. It’s so much quieter than the old model, I like the cart especially as it gives a handle to allow you to move the vacuum around without bending down which for someone with low back pain, this is a great relief" —Silver

    Get it from Amazon for $141.95+ (available in three sizes).

    3. 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 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

    4. An electric pressure washer you can use to restore your deck or back patio to the way it's supposed to look. There's gotta be a clean floor under there somewhere!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Power washer was delivered Monday, it’s Wednesday and I have washed two cars, cleaned the driveway and sidewalks, cleaned the back fence, and the work keeps piling up, everything I see now needs to be cleaned! This little dude does not back down, plenty of power and it's surprisingly not too loud. Soap dispensers work great, and the tips are easy to change." —Mar

    Get it from Amazon for $150.60 (originally $199.99).

    5. An all-in-one vacuum and mop that'll leave your entire home fresh 'n' clean without you having to lift a finger.

    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 $449.99 (available in two colors).

    6. Rubbermaid's power scrubbing brush, for when you want to give your grout an all-inclusive spa treatment and bring it back to its squeaky-clean glory.

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed, amazon.com

    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 $17.99+ (available in five styles).

    7. A box of washing machine cleaning tablets you can use to 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 ran it through the old washing machine that was left in my new house (beggars can't be choosers!) and it came out nice and clean. You might as well give their dishwasher cleaning tabs a try while you're at it.

    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 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 $10.13

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

    Amazon

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95 (originally $19.95)

    10. 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 model holding the small red vacuum
    Amazon

    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 $29.99.

    11. 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 $8.98.

    12. 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 $13.18+ (available in six colors).

    13. A grout cleaner you can use to keep your tub and shower squeaky clean and as inviting as a 5-star spa.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "We recently bought an old house that had last been renovated in 2006. In that time the shower did not get much cleaning and had some mold growth, especially around the seals. We tried using bleach and other mold remover products with partial success. After one application of this one, the mold was gone." —Darryl Campbell

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

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

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    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.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    15. 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.

    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 $7.13.

    16. 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).

    17. A red wine stain remover, so the next time you jump while watching a horror movie, it won't matter that you spilled you 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 $10.78.

    18. 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. 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.

    19. 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.

    20. 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.

    21. A luxurious citrus-scented cleaner you'll consider to be an actual treat if you're anything like Monica Geller. You DESERVE this.

    a spray bottle of olio cleaner
    saintolio / Via instagram.com

    There are few things as satisfying to me as knowing every surface in my home has been properly wiped down and cleaned, but I hate the lingering chemical-like scent a lot of cleaners leave behind after a day of cleaning. I gave Saint Olio's aromatic cleaner a go and was blown away by how delicious it smelled (and how clean my kitchen counters felt after using it!). This version smells like crisp citrus and lemongrass — it's truly delightful.

    Get it from Saint Olio for $20.

    22. A microfiber spin mop and bucket with over 79K 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 $29.97.

    23. 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 this weekend. 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 colors).

    24. 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.

    a mini washing machine
    The Home Depot

    Promising review: "This was the best investment I've made. I reside in a walk-up apartment building (basically no elevators) and it was becoming a challenge to do laundry as I have kids. I decided to purchase this washer and...well...it's the best choice I've made. It's easy to set up and use. It was slightly bigger than what I was expecting, but fits well in my somewhat small apartment. I'd definitely recommend this product to anyone who is seeking an efficient and space-saving washer." —DeeMartin32

    Get it from The Home Depot for $439.

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

    the pill remover tool
    Target

    Promising review: "This was the best purchase I’ve made in a long time. It works SO WELL. For years I have hated looking at pills on clothing and have used razors, my fingers, and different settings on the drier as well as air drying certain items, and nothing truly helped with the pilling on my clothes. This product is 100% worth the buy, I can’t believe I haven’t had one my entire life. This should be a household staple by now. If you don’t have one, buy it!!! My clothes look brand new. Works on hats and other fabrics as well. Plus it is SO satisfying to remove the pills. The front is adjustable too, so you can bring the blades closer/further away from the fabric depending on how fuzzy or thick it is. Just 5 stars all around." —chickenparm

    Get it from Target for $12.99.

    26. A ceramic cooktop cleaning kit you can count on to leave your stove looking brand new. Burnt-on grease? I don't know her.

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $16.78.

    27. An OXO 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.

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in two colors)

    28. 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

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    29. 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.

    the 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 $8.95.

    30. 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 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 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 your tub."Paul Southwick

    31. A PhoneSoap UV sanitizer you can toss your phone into for a quick 10 minutes after you get home to get rid of the grime that's surely lurking around.

    PhoneSoap, amazon.com

    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.

    Promising review: "Wow! I love this device! As you see in the picture, I tested the bacteria on my phone before and after use of Phone Soap (shown above). I swabbed both the back and front of my phone and what do you know, apparently the back of your phone is way dirty ( left is back and right is front of phone in the pic). The after use shows no sign of bacterial growth which is amazing! Totally worth buying it!" —Arya

    Get it from Amazon for $79.95 (available in six colors).

    32. 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

    33. 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.

    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.

    34. 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

    35. 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

    36. A grout pen to help you restore your tile floor and bathroom walls and leave 'em looking like they were just installed. Feel free to enthusiastically yell "YOU COULD EAT OFF OF THESE FLOORS!" after the job is done.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These things are awesome! I cleaned my bathroom tile grout first because the lady that lived there before me really let it go. A few places stayed stained and I was worried it wouldn't cover them, but all grout areas are bright white and look new now!" —Donna K Cook

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in narrow and wide tips).

    37. A soap dispensing brush that might just make you want to clean your dishes — it looks kinda fun, doesn't it?

    oxo / Via instagram.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm loving this little brush. I had purchased another dish brush a while back from the grocery store and the bristles were so stiff that it often splattered soap everywhere. This one isn't like that. The bristles are stiff, but soft enough that they tend to cling to what you're brushing, so they don't cause that splatter effect. I also like that you can open the whole thing up by taking its top off to refill it, giving you plenty of room to pour in the dish soap. The ability to easily remove and replace the brush is another very handy feature. Both are easy to do and it's well made, so they're not likely to come open or undone unexpectedly." —Elliria

    38. 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

    Promising review: "I’m really happy with my bacon sponge. I came across this item while on my never-ending quest to reduce paper and plastic waste in my life, and I’m so glad I did. It’s really helped to cut down on paper towel waste in my home. It’s a sturdy, absorbent cloth material that works great for draining bacon, chicken, etc. It’s also really easy to take care of, and after several washes so far, I can tell it’s going to last a long time. Really great sustainable staple in my kitchen." —Hayley Amerman
