    Deep Clean Your Entire Life This Fall With These 31 Products

    You let a lot slide during the summer, so now's the time to scrub everything from your coffee maker to your car fresh and new for the season.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. An amazing leather and suede cleaning brush you'll be easily ~suede~ to buy once you peep pics of the results. No more ruining your beloved booties on their first day stomping through the leaves.

    The brush actually has four parts — a soft bristle side and a hard bristle side, plus curved edges to tackle even the hard-to-reach parts of your suede goods.

    Promising review: "BUY THIS THING! I got mud on my new suede boots and thought for sure they were ruined, but this brush completely restored them. I was shocked. I even used it on an old pair of boots from college that I have considered ruined for several years and it did wonders on getting rid of the filth on top of the suede. I was so impressed. It's absolutely worth getting and trying for yourself! Scuff marks take a bit more time to improve, but they do look better after brushing them." —Gaby Scott

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    2. Some reusable keyboard cleaning goo that may look like a Halloween party favor, but is ~scary~ good at reaching into the dusty depths between your keys that you could never figure out how to clean and picking up crumbs that have been there since last fall.

    Gunk sticks to the putty and won't come back out, so you can just squish it into a new shape and use it over and over again. Note that this doesn't kill germs, so you should still be using a disinfectant wipe for that!

    Promising review: "This stuff is magic. If you have a keyboard, a work phone, plastic fruit, tops of candles, silk plants and flowers, a cell phone, car shelves and cup holders...I’m sure there are many, many other uses but these are the things I use it on and it works like magic!!!!" —janna

    3. A mold and mildew stain remover for grout sure to make you wanna take before and after pics so you can tile all your friends about how it finally restored your bathroom to the sparkly clean it had when you first moved in.

    Promising review: "I would give this stuff 10 stars if I could! We had mold in the bathroom. I’d tried so many things, but they barely worked. Then I saw an ad for this on Facebook and decided to give it a try. Wonder of wonders, I could see it working in just a few hours. Directions say to leave it on about six hours, and when I came back it was almost completely gone. I gave it another application the following day. Mold is gone. YAY!!!! Already ordered more because I won’t be without it. 😁" —Trudy Marsh-parham

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    4. Keurig-cleaning cups that can be used with any Keurig single-cup machine and will keep your homemade brews tasting their best, eliminating any residue from old batches. NOTHING, I repeat, NOTHING must taint your attempt at a homemade PSL.

    Promising review: "10 stars!! Pictures are worth 1,000 words, folks. I haven’t cleaned my Keurig in years...yes it’s nasty, but I guess I never really thought about it. As you can see from start to finish, the water was BLACK in the beginning; now it is CLEAR! I can’t wait to clean my Keurig every week (it’s too easy not to do it) plus enjoy tomorrow’s cup of joe :). Amazing product. Easy to use. No smell. I already bought two more boxes. 👍" —Amazon Customer

    5. A hairbrush cleaning tool to give your most-used beauty tool the much-needed deep clean it hasn't gotten since...well, ever.

    The reviewer above got such amazing results by using this tool along with soaking their brush in a Dawn and diluted vinegar solution!

    Promising review: "When I bought this, I was really skeptical. I am grossed out by my hairbrush and clean it all the time. I've soaked it in vinegar and tea tree oil, used a toothbrush, scrubbed it with shampoo, picked it clean by hand — everything you can think of. Still, it's so hard to get the little lint that forms at the base of the brush — they don't dissolve off, and you have to pick them off the bristles one by one because a toothbrush won't even break them up. This thing works amazingly. I don't know why, but it just does — the particular texture of the bristles on this really grabs everything. It scraped the little lint rings right off, and now my brush is cleaner, 10 times as fast." —HeartsofHavoc

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

    6. Easy-Off Professional Fume-Free Max Oven Cleaner, a lemon-scented miracle that'll dissolve baked-on stains and grease you thought would be there till the year 3022. Gotta get your equipment fresh and ready for all your fall bakes!

    Promising review: "WHAT WITCHCRAFT IS THIS?! Simply UNBELIEVABLE. Fume-free and no gloves needed, but dissolves ANYTHING cooked on! I hadn't cleaned my oven EVER. I simply sprayed it on, shut the door overnight, and wiped it off with paper towels. You don't have to dread cleaning the oven ever again! You can use it for everyday spot cleaning and only have to let it sit for a couple hours for minor things. I used it on a broiler pan that would not scrub clean with even steel wool. No need to scrub ever again now! My Crock-Pot leaked over the bowl and got burned on the inside heating chamber; I just sprayed, covered, and wiped in the morning. I plan on using it to clean the grill in spring, and I'm sure it will make it a breeze." —Andrew J.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.41 (or $12.741 with the Subscribe & Save option).

    7. Or a 100% natural oven scrub made with eucalyptus, peppermint, lemon, and tea tree essential oils that's ready to work cleaning miracles on all the not-yummy gunk and residue left over from making all your yummy meals.

    It is from a small cleaning product biz based in Fairfield, Connecticut and comes with a metallic scrubber!

    Promising review: "I couldn't believe how clean it got our oven in just a few scrubs with this stuff! It looks brand-new!" —Philip Romanowski

    Get it from Everneat on Etsy for $19.99 (available in three scents).

    8. A Pink Stuff combo pack including the magical, TikTok-beloved cleaner in both paste and spray form, so you can scrub anything from cookware to walls and bathroom fixtures to rubber shoes shiny clean. Just ~pink~ of all the icky, stained things in your home (that have been ignored all summer) you can finally clean with this stuff!

    Promising review: "WOW!!!! This stuff is amazing. I literally just have to spray it, let it sit for a few minutes, come back, and depending on what I’m using it for I either wipe it and it comes right off or I just use a scrubbing pad and it comes off. There’s nothing out there that is anywhere in comparison to this product!!!! This stuff is the absolute best. I highly recommend purchasing this. I can tell you that half of my cleaning products are now going to be thrown out because all I need is The Pink Stuff 😀😀. Whoever invented this stuff is an absolute genius; if you’re a clean freak like me this really is the way to go. Also it doesn’t have that nasty chemical smell, it smells great. Just buy it you won’t regret it." —Twin33

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    9. Durable all-purpose wipes made with aloe vera and vitamin E for everything from your hands to your car to tricky stains like grease, makeup, adhesives, and permanent marker. Paper towels are cancelled, and parents — these are basically back-to-school season must-haves.


    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

    Get a pack of 90 from Amazon for $14.94 (available in multiple sizes and packs).

    10. Washable microfiber mop pads that'll fit on your trusty Swiffer WetJet or similar mops so you can kick wasteful and pricey disposable pads to the curb — plus clean deeper than ever before.

    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 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 but more if the two I got ever wear out." —Riley

    11. An amazing stain remover for concrete sure to have oil and grease stains belting out the melancholy refrain of a truly underrated Miley Cyrus bop. ♫ "So I guess the drivewayyyyyyyyy will be the end of the road..." ♫

    Promising review: "This product worked like a miracle. Very easy to use. The oil stain in my driveway was over 18 months old. I read the reviews, so I cleaned my driveway with car wash solution first to open up the pores in the concrete, let it dry completely, shook the bottle really well, poured it on the concrete, took a push broom and pushed the liquid in the direction of the lines in the concrete to make sure it absorbed, and in the Vegas heat it dried completely from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Be patient and make sure it dries completely. I used the push broom and brushed away the powder residue and the biggest oil spot and others were gone. I ordered two more bottles to do the rest of my driveway. I think the key is to cleanse it first to loosen the oil, then use it. In three hours the 18-month-old oil spots were gone. I highly recommend this product." —Loves

    Get it from Amazon for $17.97 (or $17.07 with the Subscribe & Save option).

    12. A paws-itively amazing rubber pet hair broom with a built-in squeegee designed to sweep up all that seasonal shedding (and even liquids!) like no other. It's def a must for anyone who ever has to clean up after their pet, but can be used on non-fur baby-related spills too. The only question that remains is, do you really WANT to know how much hair is hiding in your carpet?

    Two Golden Retrievers posing next to the broom and a pile of hair about as big as one of them
    A dog next to the broom, a cheeky sign, and a pile of hair about the size of a sheet of paper

    Since it's basically a giant squeegee, you can even use it on cars and windows! And yes, it also works for cleaning up after humans who shed hair like nobody's business (same). BuzzFeed Shopping editor Emma Lord raves about it for that purpose in her Furemover broom review.

    (Psst...if you're wondering, the sign next to the pooch on the right reads "This is our new carpet broom. THIS is who is evicted from our bedroom. This is the gross ball of hair collected from our carpet.")

    Promising review: "LIFE-CHANGER. We have two very floofy cats and I have long, thick hair, so needless to say there is a lot of shedding in our house. I could tell our vacuum wasn't quite doing the trick and I happened to stumble upon this item that looked to be the solution. WOW. First of all, it's a bit of a workout if you've got a medium-pile carpet like I do. I use short, firm strokes with the squeegee side and it pulls the hair up instantly. It's tedious work to do a whole room, but the satisfaction you get when you see all the hair makes it so worth it. Then you'll do a second pass in high-traffic areas and see how much MORE hair there is and wonder how you ever lived like that. Once you've got a nice pile, you can pick the clump of fur up by hand. I like to give it a quick vacuum after to get the dust and dirt that comes up. I haven't used it on our laminate flooring, but I'm sure that will blow me away too. This item is a complete must-have for anyone who owns a furry pet. This broom will absolutely outshine any expensive 'pet-rated' vacuum cleaner out there." —Leanna G

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98 (also available in a collapsible version).

    13. Hypoallergenic, cruelty-free, and paraben-free makeup brush-cleaning "shampoo" to have your beloved brushes (which are currently caked in powder) suds-enly looking like new. You're gonna need 'em in tip-top shape to try out all the new fall beauty looks you've been planning.

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this brush shampoo! I was a little skeptical of how well it would clean my brushes since I'd never tried it before, but after using this I am very pleased with the outcome. It has a faint shampoo scent but nothing too overpowering, and suds like you wouldn't believe. It got all the way down to the base of the brush and gave it a really good cleaning. One of my brushes is made from boar hair (Estée Lauder powder brush) and I was worried it was going to frizz it out and ruin the shape, but it actually improved it after I had previously used baby shampoo. It's very soft and not at all coarse feeling. I also used this shampoo on my Beauty Blender, and it did a great job getting all the foundation out. All in all, I'd rate this product a 10/10!" —Katastrophe

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (or $6.64 with the Subscribe & Save option).

    14. Oh Yuk jetted tub cleaner, because bubble bath season is coming and you'd better be ready. This will clean your jets in just 15 minutes and is named for exactly what you'll say when you see all the gunk that was hiding in them.

    It's from a family-owned, Minnesota-based company!

    Promising review: "Oh my gosh! You think your tub is clean and then you see what comes out with this! I followed the directions (fill tub over jets, pour in cleaner, turn on jets). Almost immediately, disgusting residue shot out. And then most came out as the chemical had time to circulate. So glad I got this cleaner instead of sitting in filth, especially because we just bought a new house and I thought, 'Maybe I should try to find out if there is a special cleaner for these tubs.' Glad I did and can know my tub is cleaned out." —Aaron Johnson

    Get it from Amazon for $17.84 (or $16.06 with the Subscribe & Save option).

    15. Impressive silver polishing wipes to get your most prized jewelry, silverware, and decor shining like new again. You might need to wear sunglasses to handle all that sparkle.

    Promising review: "My engagement ring is silver, and it tarnishes easily. Since I wear it every day, it would get dull and gray very quickly. I was using silver cleaner, but it didn't work very well, and didn't make my ring shiny. These wipes blew that stuff away! Just a few seconds was all it took to make my ring look brand new. I am so happy with these wipes. So easy, and the results are amazing! I even tried one on my white gold wedding band, and it worked on that too." —Bethany Nadeau

    Get 20 wipes from Amazon for $8.48 (also available in a six-pack).

    16. A super affordable, game-changing power scrubber if you consider deep cleaning your bathroom a pain in the tush. Not anymore — this baby will leave your loo sparkling with basically zero effort on your part.

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed Shopping editor Natalie Brown put this to the test, and here's what she had to say: "This thing works small miracles: I cleaned about half of my bathroom's grout to its original sparkling-clean cream color in 40 minutes, and it took honestly no effort at all. I literally sat on the floor, dipped the bristles in a Castile soap dilution (2–3 drops of soap + 1/2 cup of water; but you could use almost any cleaner of your choice), then lazily ran the scrubber back and forth over a 6-inch section of grimy, dark-gray grout — and it only took about 30 seconds for that grout to go from dingy to bright. I started by using the specialty grout brush, but then I decided to try it with the default brush and that seemed to work just as well, IMHO!" Check out her full power scrubber review.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.38. You can also get a special grout-cleaning brush head that can be swapped in for the regular one for $8.90.

    17. Asutra's 100% natural yoga mat cleaning spray to deep clean your beloved workout companion. It'll cut through the sweat and stink that's lurking in your mat *and* leave an aromatherapy-tastic, essential oil-powered fresh scent behind.

    It's from a woman-owned self-care brand that's partially owned by Venus Williams!

    Promising review: "I have used many yoga mat cleaners, and this one is the best! It does a great job at both daily cleans and deep cleanses — I didn’t realize how dirty my mat was until I saw the difference using this product. It also smells fantastic; I have the lavender. The smell is very strong, makes my room smell like lavender, and the mat continues to smell nice for days. So definitely pick a scent you like. The towel it comes with is a nice bonus. I will be purchasing again." —sp

    Get the spray plus a microfiber cleaning towel from Amazon for $13.07+ (or $11.76+ with the Subscribe & Save option; available in seven scents).

    18. A stunningly effective diamond cleaning stick precise enough to clean every every last corner of your most prized gems and get them to shine as bright as Rihanna said they would, even after a sweaty summer of wear and tear.

    Check out BuzzFeed's full write-up on this amazing stick.

    Promising review: "If I could give this 20 stars, I would! After reading all the reviews on this, I was expecting it to work, but I was still amazed by how great it worked! It seriously made me realize that I ring I inherited from a family member 15 years ago was a completely different color than I thought it was. In the 15 years I've had this ring, I've never seen the actual color of the stone! My mind was blown! I'll have one of these on hand for the rest of my life." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $8.04.

    19. A leather cleaner to buy when every other method you've tried has come so close, yet ~sofa~ from getting the stains out of your beloved leather couch (or jacket, or purse, or office chair...). Time to get your favorite place to rest your booty looking its best before you have pals over for a spooky movie marathon.

    Promising review: "I used this on my natural leather couch and wow! The results were amazing. This couch looks better than it did when I bought it new. Some reviews said the smell is bad, but it smells just like any other cleaner that doesn't have added fragrance. As soon as the solution dried, which took about 10 minutes, the smell was completely gone. I highly recommend this product if you have natural leather that you need cleaned." —Amanda Coffee

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (or $15.29 with the Subscribe & Save option).

    20. A multi-surface pet stain and odor eliminator that over 66,000 people (and presumably their furry friends) love. Those pee stains you only managed to get 80% out of the carpet from last spring? Gone.
