    1. A bottle of mold and mildew remover, because it's time to conquer the gross, moldy nooks and crannies of your bathroom. Just apply the gel on the surface, let it sit for 7-8 hours, and rinse it off. No scrubbing required!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Wow! I would give this 10 stars if I could. We've had issues for a few years with the caulking behind the handle of our kitchen faucet turning black from mildew. We've scrubbed with what seems like a million different products, with no luck. We were actually just talking about ripping out the caulking and doing a total replacement. But, my husband saw this online the other day and decided to order it. Almost immediately when he applied it, you could see it was starting to work. We left it on overnight and the black is COMPLETELY GONE! It's incredible. 1000% worth the (small) investment." —Nicole D.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    2. A bottle of ammonia-free Windex glass cleaner so your mirrors will no longer be covered in smudges and fingerprints. Your mirror selfies are about to look so much better!

    amazon.com

    Because it's ammonia-free, it won't leave behind a harsh chemical smell!

    Promising review: "This Windex is my favorite. It smells great and leaves my windows and mirrors streak-free. I also use this on my quartz countertops. It was recommended to me by the guys who installed my countertops because of the 'no ammonia.'" —trishh12

    Get it from Amazon for $2.50.

    3. A bottle of wood polish and conditioner to transform your old, worn-down furniture into a gorgeous new focal point of your room.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "OMG! This is the most AMAZING product! We inherited some antique furniture from the '30s that had been in storage forever... it was dry and dirty and not much to look at. I used this product on it and the oak wood literally came alive showing the beautiful grain and texture of the wood. I have since used it on my oak kitchen cabinets and they look AMAZING! I will never use anything else other than this product on my wood surfaces! No greasy feel... fantastic smell!" —Tiffany Sadowski

    Get a bottle from Amazon for $8.48.

    4. An Angry Mama microwave cleaner, because I'm guessing those sauce-and-cheese splatters have been living in there for a bit too long.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This little device is great and it's super simple. Fill to the lines with vinegar and water, nuke for seven minutes, let it sit for two minutes, then wipe clean. My embarrassingly super gross microwave wiped completely clean with a couple of paper towels. I highly recommend this." —UglyPetty

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    5. A pack of stainless steel wipes to have your kitchen appliances shining bright like a diamond.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I purchased these wipes to clean my stainless-steel refrigerator. I wanted something that would remove water stains and restore the shine, and these wipes delivered! After a few minutes of my vigorously wiping back and forth along the grain, my refrigerator was looking brand-new. I was impressed with the results and noticed that the canister said the wipes could be used on sinks, so I tried one in my stainless-steel sink to see what would happen. As you can see from the pictures, after just a few minutes of cleaning my sink was sparkling and incredible! I began cleaning all of the stainless-steel appliances in the kitchen, and just a few wipes and 20 minutes later my kitchen was looking better than ever." —Connor

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $13.98.

    6. A fume-free oven cleaner so you can get rid of the gross crispies and baked-on spills that may or may not have been accumulating for months.

    amazon.com

    The directions say you actually only have to wait for two hours to get results. (And many reviewers say it's true!)

    Promising review: "Oh man, this stuff is awesome! I sprayed and left it on overnight. I had no idea what to expect. I took a paper towel and started wiping out the oven. The grime just melted away. I am VERY pleased!" —KsGrl444

    Get it from Amazon for $6.44 (also available in a pack of six).

    7. A metal polisher for your lamps and decor that are looking a little lackluster. This will make them shine so much, you'll want to wear sunglasses around the house.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is MAGICAL. I used it to restore a 1930s brass floor lamp, hoping it would help restore shine to the lamp's dullness. Instead, these gentle little cloths revealed a lamp of incredible beauty. I won't lie — restoration like this certainly took some elbow grease — but these polishing cloths made the cleaning process very easy. Just gently rub the surface and watch years of tarnish melt away. The cloths are non-abrasive and don't scratch, and believe it or not, they have a pleasant smell (unlike many other metal polishing products)." —Tina G.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    8. A set of drill brushes you can use to remove any of that hard-to-clean grossness that's caked up on your stove, grill, shower, or floor.

    amazon.com

    Make sure to use them only on surfaces you're pretty sure they won't scratch! And you can alway test in a discreet area first to check.

    Promising review: "I bought this on a whim because my walk-in shower is just a pain to clean. I'm 51 and I guess I've just been old school with how I clean, so hand scrubbing it was for years. The FIRST time I used this to clean my shower it took five minutes AND it scrubbed my shower more clean than it has been in years. In the corners, the floor, the glass door...everything came out squeaky clean. I'm NEVER cleaning my shower by hand again." —Terry

    Get the set of three brushes from Amazon for $14.95 (available in six colors).

    9. A robotic vacuum that'll constantly and effortlessly keep the dust and dirt off your hardwood floors so they can always be glistening.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This robo vac can easily move between hard floors and low-pile carpets/rugs and can pick up all the accumulated dust, dirt, and hair while you go about your day.

    Promising review: "I set it up to go around my house once a day while I'm at work and I have never been disappointed. The amount of cat hair and dirt/dust that it picks up everyday is disgusting. I LOVE IT. I couldn't believe that EVERY DAY there is that much dirt on my floor that I would have waited until the weekend to sweep or vacuum up. There is no longer the feeling of little bits of dirt on your feet while walking through the house barefoot. I highly recommend this vacuum for the price and for what we bought it for — to sweep/vacuum our hardwood floors and minimal carpets." —Allison Darrow

    Get it from Amazon for $219.99 (available in two colors).

    10. A pair of small, deep cleaning scrub brushes to get all of the cracks and crevices around the house squeaky clean and shining.

    Amazom, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I HIGHLY recommend these brushes for grout. If you are on the fence of 'Ehhh do I NEED a grout brush? I could just scrub the floor...' Stop. Get these brushes. They are stiff and cut down the elbow grease time incredibly. Plus you can use them on anything. Pros: Sturdy, easy to clean, solid brushes. Con: Hands may 'hurt' a bit after use due to elbow grease." —Jennifer

    Get the two from Amazon for $5.99.

    11. An extendable microfiber duster that'll reach around your decor, shelves, and light fixtures that are wayyy up high, so they can gleam with cleanliness (instead of getting neglected for years at a time).

    amazon.com

    The microfiber duster can be used on everything from your ceiling fan to your keyboard and the extension pole can reach up to 100 inches!

    Promising review: "The quality of this duster is amazing. The cleaning fibers are extremely fine, which can also be used to clean keyboards. They are washable so they can be cleaned easily, which also increases its life. The rod of the duster can be extended up to nine feet so you can clean ceiling fans and other things at height standing on floor, without the use of a stool or chair — so no fear of stumbling down and getting hurt. The duster is removable from the rod top so it can be used to clean small objects. Cleaning with it is extremely easy, rapid, and time-saving." —Harssh

    Get it from Amazon for $15.69.

    12. A pumice cleaning stone you can use to rid your throne of those yucky stains.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a 19-year-old master bathroom toilet that had accumulated some nasty stains over time which regular toilet brushes and cleaning products just would not remove. Decided to try this pumice stone, figuring that the worst that could happen would be that it scratched the porcelain and I'd have to replace the toilet. Which was what I would have had to have done anyway, if I couldn't get the disgusting stains out. Pumice stone worked like a charm! Given the nature and severity of the stains, it required some elbow grease, but 10 minutes later I have a new-looking bowl, and I see no signs of scratching. Am very happy with this purchase... well worth the very low price!" —Happy Retiree

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (also available in a two-pack).

    13. Some Goo Gone adhesive remover, because once you finally get that sticky stuff off your window, it'll be so clear that you won't even be able to tell if it's open or not.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing. So far, I have used it to remove heavy adhesive from a tile floor where we had previously had a cover for a wire running across the area. I applied Goo Gone, scraped the majority of the adhesive and fibers off, then wiped off the remaining residue with a paper towel. I also used it to clean grease off of wood veneer cabinets using a paper towel, and it was so effortless! We have a microwave above the stove, and I also used Goo Gone to clean grease from the exhaust vents, which was so much easier than ever before." —Cass

    Get an 8-ounce bottle from Amazon for $7.87.

    14. A rust stain remover to get rid of the unappealing rust that's holding your bathroom back from being #goals.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I used it on our tubs, toilets, sinks, and shower. It took one bottle of this stuff to achieve the same result as three bottles of other brands. I will buy this again hands-down. I just sprayed, walk away for a few minutes, and wiped and rinsed." —Carrie D.

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    15. A ceramic cooktop cleaner that'll keep your cooking area looking HGTV-approved. It's safe on all smooth tops, including radiant and halogen.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I honestly did not think this product would work! I tried nearly everything, including the sample that came with my black glass stove. I squirted the product onto the stove top and used a damp scrub pad. Most of the built-up brown stains and white streaks came off with minimal scrubbing effort. What impressed me was that the white streaks were 95% gone as well! Nothing took these off before. I highly recommend this product! The only thing I will use from now on!" —Natalie

    Get it from Amazon for $4.98.

    16. A bleach-free powder cleaner to easily remove rust, tarnish, and stains from your sink, floor, dishes, and more. You're going to be pouring this stuff everywhere once you see how pristine it makes everything look.

    amazon.com

    You can use this powdered cleanser on any non-porous surface, for example: stainless steel, glass, ceramic, porcelain, and acrylic. Just add some of the powder while scrubbing/wiping the item or surface with water and it'll make a drastic difference. According to reviewers, even the toughest stains will be gone within minutes!

    Promising review: "This stuff works so well, you'll feel like you're in a staged infomercial where your surfaces are left gleaming and impossibly new. I removed the worst stains from my white ceramic sink, which I had tried everything on — bleach, oxygen cleaners, lemon, and baking soda. Nothing worked. But sprinkle some Bar Keeper's Friend on there with about 10 minutes of elbow grease and BOOM, it looks almost brand new. I'm obsessed. I could not recommend it more." —KathleenH

    Get it from Amazon for $7.29 (also available in packs two, three, and six).

    17. An electric pressure washer that can power clean your house siding, walkway, deck, and more, making it so clean that when the sun hits it, your house will sparkle like a vampire from Twilight.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this washer. It competes with my 2200 psi gas-powered pressure washer, which in fact I sold to keep this. But doesn't have the noisy gas engine or the heavy weight. Easy to move around lightweight and has great power. Very quiet. I love all the attachments and the different stream types. The soap dispenser works well. I'm cleaning everything, my deck, my house, the garage doors, the concrete slab. It takes off all the dirt and mold from the old concrete stairs and sidewalk." —Tim S.

    Get it from Amazon for $148.49.

    18. A two-in-one window-washing sponge and squeegee so you can 🎶see clearly now the rain is gone🎶. But really, it's probably time to give those windows a good wash and this scrubber will make it SO much easier.

    Amazon

    The scrubber is removable and machine washable and the rubber blade will make sure your windows stay streak-free.

    Promising review: "I'm done with Windex and newspaper. This product makes the job cleaning windows (something I do once a year...maybe) just because it's so tedious, much much easier. I bought this to clean windows on a home I'm selling and it was quick, extremely effective. Going to wash windows in my current home today because, first, they need them, and second, I know it'll be quick and painless!" —sun_muse

    Get the window washer from Amazon for $9.81 and the five-foot extension pole from Amazon for $6.71.

    19. A non-toxic daily shower spray to keep the residue and grime away so your shower is always in tip-top shape. Plus, you don't even have to rinse it off! It's a lazy, yet effective way to make sure the place where you clean yourself is spotless.

    Amazon

    You just spray it on after your shower — no rinsing required! It works well to prevent mildew and soap scum in showers without glass doors too. (It's the middle product shown above. See the toilet cleaner below and grab the bathroom cleaning spray here.)

    Promising review: "Our shower has one of those full length glass doors that was impossible to keep from hazing over. We even use a squeegee on the door after every shower, and it still managed to build up on the door. I have tried so many different cleaners, but had just about given up on ever having a spotless glass door. I decided to try this stuff since I love the smell of eucalyptus, so even if it didn't work, it wouldn't be a total loss. Now we use the squeegee as usual, and then spray the door with this shower cleaner and the door is completely clear. No scrubbing. No wiping. I love it!" —girlgeek

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $14.24.

    20. A scratch-free scraper tool, because that sticky, gunky stuff is totally ruining the picture perfect aesthetic of your super clean kitchen.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    You can use this handy tool to remove dried food, wax, grime, adhesive, and more.

    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." —MissPicky

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    21. A tub of heavy-duty cleaning wipes to help you quickly and easily clean up grease, oil, dirt, ink, makeup, food, and more on pretty much any surface. This way you can clean those pesky little messes as they happen and keep everything shining like the top of the Chrysler Building.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are awesome! The size of the container is large and so was the quantity I received. The wipes are huge and tough, great for scrubbing! I cleaned my whole house with these and they removed stains I haven't been able to get out for a while. I also tried them on my walls and they did not remove the paint. Also, they smell fantastic: no chemical smell whatsoever. These are a great deal on Amazon, and I will be purchasing them again!" —Suze

    Get a pack of 90 from Amazon for $11.94.

    22. A pack of Affresh dishwasher cleaning tablets so even the inside of your dishwasher can sparkle! If your dishwasher isn't clean, how can it properly clean your cute mugs and silverware??

    amazon.com

    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 build-up 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 build-up 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 build-up 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.

    23. And some Mr. Clean Magic Erasers that'll make those tub stains, random wall marks, and more disappear... like magic!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I never thought I'd be able to get the weird pink soap stains out of my tub. Picture someone scrubbing with cleaning products until their arms were sore, to no avail. But this worked with no effort! It's unbelievable. Please never let this go off the market!" —Catherine King

    Get two packs of four from Amazon for $9.88.
