    1. A bottle of Hope's Perfect sink cleaner and polish to remove stains and restore any stainless steel, cast-iron, porcelain, or acrylic back to its original spotless state. As soon as you see how shiny your appliances are, you'll wonder why you didn't buy this YEARS ago.

    Promising review: "Every once in awhile you stumble on a product on Amazon that you buy on a whim because of the good reviews. When you actually receive the product and use it you can't believe how good it really is. This is definitely one of those products. Truth be told, the stainless steel sink in my house is 14 years old. While we have cleaned the sink thoroughly every two weeks since we have moved in, we have never polished it or used a product such as this one. The first time I applied it to the sink we could tell that there was an amazing difference. In fact, the sink sparkled so brightly from the overhead kitchen can lights it really was too bright to view! You can tell that this product is 'doing its job' because a black film comes off of the stainless steel after you clean it." —From Wyoming to California via NYC

    Get it from Amazon for $3.97.

    2. A 24-pocket door hanging sleeve that'll make any type of storage closet you're tackling this summer feel 100% more organized by the time you're done. Make great use of the space behind your closet's door. Knock, knock. Who's there? Storage solutions at a great price.

    Promising review: "I am very happy with this over-door shoe holder. I have a small closet and didn't want to have my shoes all in a big pile on the floor, making them hard to find and hard to get to." —Kathleen R.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.87 (available in three colors).

    3. A stainless-steel cleaner to remove all of those annoying little fingerprints on your kitchen appliances.

    amazon.com

    Promising Review: "I finally purchased a beautiful stainless-steel refrigerator. Unfortunately, after the delivery guys left, I noticed marks on the front doors left by packing tape. I was unable to wash off the marks. In addition, I noticed fingerprint marks almost every time I opened the refrigerator which, for the most part, would not come off. I used this on the refrigerator as soon as it arrived and was amazed at how easily the marks came off. Extra bonus: No new fingerprints since my first application a week ago! It really works!" —Tinkerbell

    Get it from Amazon for $16.97.

    4. A two-pack of charcoal shoe deodorizers, because they'll absorb all the sweat and stench from your favorite pair of shoes so well, you'll be kicking yourself for not buying them sooner!

    You can reuse them for up to two years! Set them out in the sun for an hour to re-activate the charcoal.

    Promising review: "My husband always says as soon as I take off my shoes the room just smells like dirty feet for the next couple hours. Asked him if it would be worth investing $10 in these and he said YES PLEASE! They arrived today, and I was eager to try them out. I took my shoes off and within five minutes I couldn't smell it any more!" —Kaorrie

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $9.95.

    Read my colleague's Moso Naturals Air Purifying Bags review for more on why she loves this product.

    5. A scratch-free scraper tool if your nails are tired of being used to remove sticky things from bottles, counters, and more.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    You can use this to remove candle wax from tables, dried food from counter tops, adhesive stickers on new products, soap buildup in bathrooms, etc!

    Promising review: "The perfect handy tool for getting into tight places. It's firm enough for multiple uses but it doesn't scratch or mar surfaces. I should have gotten the five-pack; I have so many uses for these things. I think the best use yet was cleaning the sliding door track. I finally could get into the corners to get the grunge out. A great invention." —Miss Picky

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $6.99.

    6. A glass cook top cleaner essential for removing the nasty, caked-on food gunk stuck on the sides of your burner from your attempt at making spaghetti three weeks ago.

    amazon.com

    The kit includes a 10-ounce bottle of Cerama Bryte cooktop cleaner, one cleaning pad, and one scraper.

    Promising review: "This stuff is incredible. My rental apartment has a white glass cooktop and it gets nasty even if you use very clean pots and pans on it. Before I found this stuff, I thought that for sure I would lose a big chunk of my security deposit, but I have yet to encounter a stain that this stuff cannot remove. Sometimes it takes a couple of tries alternating between the paste and the razor scraper, but even the most stubborn burned-on, carbonized food bits always come off." —Max

    Get it from Amazon for $11.48.

    7. A chemical-free treatment to have your bathroom fixtures looking sparkly, shiny, and new. Just look at those satisfying results.

    This stuff also works great against all types of pesky problems. Mildew, mold, rust, you name it!

    Promising review: "Oh my gosh, this product is amazing! I didn't have much faith initially since we have extremely hard water and it usually takes over two hours with a magic eraser to budge it. But in under an hour and hardly any effort later, this product wiped out my shower like magic. You do have to use it on a dry surface with the included cloth." —Alicia A Dennis

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in two sizes).

    8. A bottle of stain remover that'll dissolve even the worst rust stains right before your very eyes, no scrubbing required. When you said you liked a ~rustic~ vibe for your apartment this is NOT what you meant.

    amazon.com

    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." —Samantha

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $20.99.

    9. A jewelry cleaning jar because years of wear have dulled your precious pieces more than you might think. Use this cleaner to remember what they looked like when you first got them!

    It includes a basket for easily dropping in and removing pieces put in the solution. But please also note this should not be used on pearls!

    Promising review: "Decided to try this and WOW! It literally worked in seconds and was so efficient. I cleaned every piece of silver I owned because I was so amazed. I will never use anything else! This stuff is awesome!" —ACC41606

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95.

    10. A bag of Bottle Bright tablets that'll clean your bottles, plastic containers, mugs, and everything else with no scrubbing required. We love an all-natural, no-hassle way to clean!

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. Bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER HydroFlask to replace it. Now eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING." —Amazon Customer

    Get 12 tablets from Amazon for $8.

    11. A disposable Clorox toilet cleaning kit designed to clean the crap outta your toilet bowl. I'm a #1 fan of this #2 cleaner-upper!

    Are you grossed out by the fact that your old toilet brush is sitting in literal filth? Then this scrubber kit is for you. It includes a wand, storage caddy, and six refill sponges, the latter of which you could toss after just one use. Plus the cleaning liquid needed is built-in so you really don't have to do anything at all!

    Promising review: "Throw away your nasty toilet brush because THIS THING IS AWESOME! Tons of cleaner on the little pads; I could have cleaned eight toilets with one pad. Love that you can click and toss the used pad. Genius!" —Hannah G.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.88.

    12. A bottle of nonabrasive, pre-mixed Bar Keepers Friend cleanser for when you're dealing with stains and rust that regular soap, water, and scrubbing won't budge.

    Promising review: "This is at the very top of our cleaning supply list. It cleans anything we have ever tried it on. Our kitchen pots and pans are absolutely perfectly shiny and like new after almost 30 years since we purchased them. Our old historic home's sink comes beautifully clean with this. The bathroom is sparkly clean and looks wonderful." —Small~Town~Girl

    Get it from Amazon for $14 (available in three sizes).

    Check out my colleague's Bar Keepers Friend review and see how she cleaned her entire apartment with it.

    13. A set of Affresh dishwasher cleaning tablets that'll make the thing that cleans your stuff actually clean itself! There is residue that's been hanging out in there for a while now and this is a simple and fast solution to get rid of it.

    amazon.com

    Use these once a month to penetrate, dissolve, and remove odor-causing buildup.

    Promising review: "This works extremely well. We haven't done any cleaning on our dishwasher in five years, and the sliding dish trays were tough to pull out or push in, there was detergent buildup all over the inside, and there was a milky film on all our cups. I bought Affresh, ran the dishwasher with two tablets while it was empty, and the difference was astounding. There was still some buildup and I figured it would require another cycle, so I popped another two tablets in, ran the machine a second time, and now it looks and sounds brand new. No more film on the glasses, no more dirty dishes from clogged sprayers, no more odors, no more buildup around the door seals. I'm going to be buying Affresh from now on, and hopefully it will extend the life of my dishwasher." —Martoune

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    14. A pet hair remover roller, because your couch used to be a different color, the sneezing has gotten out of hand, and summer allergies are 👏right 👏here 👏right 👏now 👏people!

    amazon.com

    Added bonus! This product doesn't use sticky adhesive paper. The roller can be reused over and over again because of its high quality bristles that grab the hair like a brush!

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my crazy cat-loving life? Sticky rollers work fine for clothes but this is the only product that has ever COMPLETELY removed all the cat hair from my bed. I have a long-haired 20-pound tabby and if you run your hands up his back a few times and fling the hair everywhere, it looks like it's snowing — he never stops shedding no matter what I do. After using the ChomChom, I can put on a black dress and roll around on my bed and not get a single hair on me. It's absolutely amazing. Everyone is getting one for Christmas, even if they don't have a pet. I don't care; it's THAT good." —Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    15. A stainless-steel cleaner kit for irons that have been put to work for years without the TLC they need to keep going. Years of staining, gone in minutes. That adorable dress you just pulled out of storage is not going to de-wrinkle itself!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Amazing product! Iron was used at too high of a setting on a polyester blouse. I was able to clean it in less than 10 minutes with almost no effort. The iron is as good as new, which is more than I can say about the blouse." —RJ

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    16. A garbage disposal cleanser that'll foam up to remove odor and built-up residue from what is arguably the grossest place in your entire kitchen. You're welcome!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Holy cow I didn't realize how easy and quick it was to clean a garbage disposal until I bought this product! Typically, in my naïve thinking, I'd just use vinegar and baking soda down the drain and call it good. Little did I know that there was an actual cleaning product available until I stumbled across it through a BuzzFeed article. So of course, I had to try it. Very simple instructions: it literally takes five minutes and some hot water and VOILÀ! You have a clean, no-longer-stinky garbage disposal. Let me say that anytime I got a whiff of an odor, all I did was drop one of those packs in the disposal and the smell was GONE! Plus the blue foam bubbling through the sink was amusing to watch ;-). Worth every penny!" —VadersGirl

    Get it from Amazon for $7.02.

    17. A carpet stain remover, because you've spent way too much money on professional cleaners when you can get the job done yourself. And the best part is you don't need to rinse or vacuum!

    Promising review: "YOU NEED THIS IF YOU HAVE KIDS OR PETS! I am convinced this stuff is magic in a bottle! If I can get up an ENTIRE bottle of ketchup that was rubbed in the carpet, you can get out anything!" —Ashley T.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.11.

    18. A dryer vent coil brush to remove lint and dust buildup in important spaces that could cause harm if left there.

    Promising review: "We are in love! This thing cleans so well and gets all the way down the line and around the corner. It's wide bristles really help get all the lint out and even help scrub some of the really stuck in their pieces off. We use this regularly now to clean out the vent!" —Leslie G

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    19. A jetted tub cleaner you can run through your system as part of your regular routine so you can finally enjoy that bubble bath you've been craving.

    Promising review: "Love this stuff. I was skeptical at first. I am a huge germaphobe and this worked well enough for me to actually take a bath at my new place with the jets on!" —Ann

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    20. A water-based alkaline wood cleaner that'll be tough on dirt, oil, and dried spills but gentle on the wood itself. You won't know just how dirty your railings are until you give them a good scrub.

    amazon.com

    This cleaner foams and removes built-up residue such as dirt, oily films, and dried spills.

    Promising review: "This is the best wood cleaner! It doesn't leave a super shiny or wet appearance on your table top — just a beautiful, clean look. Much better than other wood cleaners I've tried in the past!" —Georgie Girl

    Get it from Amazon for $15.27.

    21. A microfiber brush set with four extra sleeves designed to get up close and personal with the dust on your blinds. *Starts singing* "I can see clearly now the dust has gone."

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This handy dandy tool comes with five microfiber cloths, meaning you'll be able to clean your whole darn house in one sweep.

    Promising review: "This product is AMAZING! You can clean both sides of two blinds at once and grip them firmly to get ALL of the dust off. Plus, it comes with five covers, so that no matter how dirty your blinds are, you'll be able to finish dusting your whole house! I also love that you can wash the covers and don't have to waste money on refills." —Sarah

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in two colors).

    22. A brush set to banish the soap grime from your bathroom sink or dirt caught in your grout.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    The set includes a large brush and a small brush with wiper blade. They're super handy and can be kept in any drawer or closet without taking up a ton of space.

    Promising review: "These are absolutely a must for grout cleaning and deep cleaning the hard-to-get-to nooks and crannies in the kitchen and bathroom. The ergonomic handles are easy on your wrists, and the strong bristles get the job done. While I have a larger grout brush on hand for the grout on my tile floor, these are perfect for counter top tile grout." —Sandy B.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (available in two colors)

    23. A cleaner and deodorizer that'll have your carpet looking like it was just installed. I bet you forgot what color it was when you first got it!

    amazon.com

    FYI: This cleaner is only for use in carpet-cleaning machines, so you like, have to get one of those too. Here's the one they are using in the review photo!

    Promising review: "I never leave reviews but this I had to! I have 10-year-old carpet that I’m trying to make last as long as I can...because kids. Who wants to spend the money to replace flooring when they will just mess it up! I cleaned my son's carpet with this for the first time today and it looks and smells SOOOOO much better than it was! Other carpet cleaning products I’ve used have made the carpet smell like wet dog while cleaning and this didn’t! It smelled great the whole time! I’m hooked!!" —Megan Davis

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97 (available in two sizes).
