    1. A rust stain remover to get rid of the unappealing rust that's taking over your shower and holding your bathroom back from being #goals.

    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.

    2. 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!

    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.

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

    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 $6.88 (also available in packs of two and three).

    4. A bottle of ammonia-free Windex glass cleaner so your bathroom mirror will no longer be covered in streaks and smudges.

    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.

    5. A heavy-duty grout cleaner to help you remove any beauty product residue, dirt, and stains from your ceramic or porcelain tile floor., Amazon

    Apply the cleaner directly to the grout, let it sit for 5–10 minutes, give it a scrub, and then rinse with warm water.

    Promising review: "I never leave reviews on Amazon but this grout cleaner definitely deserved a review. I tried three other cleaners before buying Grout-eez and they did nothing but waste my time and money. Grout-eez got my grout perfectly clean in no time, plus it was easy to use and no oder. I'll never use another grout cleaner." —Tyler

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

    6. A Clorox ToiletWand cleaning system, which includes a wand, caddy, and six disposable refills, for you to eliminate the germs and stains from your toilet without having to reach down in there or touch anything gross. The scrub pads are preloaded with cleaner, so it's both convenient and effective.


    Promising review: "Finally! Something that actually works! The idea of a reusable toilet cleaning brush is just DISGUSTING! Not to mention when your 2-year-old comes running through the house singing into it!!! AHHHH!!!! Enter the disposable toilet wand! Not only is it MUCH more hygienic than keeping and storing a brush used for scrubbing poop, but I no longer have to worry about my little ones getting into it! Whew! This stuff does a wonderful job, and is so simple and easy to use I’ve even been able to teach hubby! Wonders never cease!" —Gobius

    Get it from Amazon for $8.88.

    7. And a pair of small, deep-cleaning scrub brushes to get all of the cracks and crevices of your bathroom tile squeaky clean and shining. It'll probably look like a whole new floor!


    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.

    8. A non-toxic daily shower spray that'll 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, well, clean.


    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.

    9. An antibacterial toilet bowl cleaner, because no one wants those germy unmentionables floating into the air. Gross!

    Promising review: "We love Method brand cleaning supplies because they are cruelty-free and green! It's the ultimate win for everybody; us, the animals, the planet! Anyway, this product cleans our toilets like a boss. It always removes all stains and grime that builds up along the walls of the toilet bowl. Unlike many other products, this does NOT have an overpowering odor, and actually smells refreshing. I highly recommend this product." —Bean & Peanut

    Get it from Amazon for $3.99.

    10. A pack of Mr. Clean Magic Erasers that'll make those tub stains, random wall marks, and more disappear... like magic!

    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.

    11. A drain snake clog remover covered in tiny hooks to grab all of the hair and build-up that's been stopping your sink or tub from draining properly. It's tough, yet flexible so you can get down in there and yank out all the grossness. No more standing in a puddle of dirty water during your shower!

    Promising review: "I’m so excited to finally have a bathroom sink that drains!! Since moving into my apartment, my bathroom sink and bathtub took forever to drain. I bought multiple de-clogging solutions but they didn’t assist or help much with the problem. When my bathtub was taking over an hour to drain I decided it was time to try these out! After receiving it, I went to work and within minutes it pulled out so much hair in both drains. It’s disturbing/disgusting, yet weirdly satisfying because now my sinks drain!! Cannot believe how easy it was to use. I received a pack of three, but only needed to use one for both sinks." —DebSd

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in two sizes).

    12. And a TubShroom to prevent the hairs from clogging up your pipes all over again.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical about this little rubber strainer, but I needed something to save my drains from the piles of hair that fall out of my head. I tried others and they all failed miserably. This thing is amazing! It fit into my standard drain perfectly, and I don't think a single hair slipped by it. It was pretty gross to see how much hair I lost in just one shower, but it was comforting to know it wasn't clogging my drain. Cleanup is super easy, too. I just took a tissue and wiped it from top to bottom, grabbing all the hair as the soft rubber strainer released it all easily. Not a hair was caught in it. Best strainer I've ever had. I strongly recommend it!!!" —Lawyer For Justice

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in six colors).

    13. A set of drill brushes you can use to remove the stubborn hard water stains, dirt, and product build-up that's caked up on your sink or shower door.,

    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).

    14. A septic-safe jetted tub system cleaner so you can get the gunk out of your tub and actually be able to have a nice, relaxing bubble bath after you get through all this cleaning.,

    Promising review: "Ok I was considering just closing off the jets in my tub because I never could get the 'gunk' out. It had never been cleaned before really from the inside. This stuff is AWESOME. I did two runs since I'd never done it before. The first run really did it and the second got just a little more out, but wow. So impressed! I can use my jets again!" —Angela B

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (one bottle does four rinses).

    15. A container of Clorox disinfecting wipes that can help you quickly (and easily) take care of 99.9% of germs on all of the surfaces in your bathroom.


    Promising review: "I have always been a user of the regular scented Clorox wipes, but I always thought they were super chemically smelling, and I would smell the scent on my hands for a few days (after washing them multiple times). When the new wipes came out I was BEYOND excited to try them, and let me tell you. They did not disappoint. They are the best-smelling cleaning product I’ve ever used. Makes cleaning more enjoyable." —Brandy

    Get a container of 70 wipes from Amazon for $4.48 (available in two scents and in packs of one and six).

    16. A can of color-changing Kaboom! Foam-tastic, because it sprays on blue and turns white when it's ready to wipe, leaving your bathroom surfaces sparkling clean with a light citrusy scent.

    Promising review: "My wife was looking for something to clean a film from her tub. She tried all the other products available, but none worked as well as this. It went on blue, and turned white after. It did a good job, you could see where you sprayed it and where you didn't. I would buy this product again." —Jerome P.

    Get it from Amazon for $3.53 (also available in packs).

    17. A squeegee to replace that ratty old towel you've been using to wipe down your shower door and mirror. Now they can look beautifully streak-free!


    Promising review: "I got this to clean my shower after each use. Could not believe all the water that it removed. I had been wiping it down with a towel before. Using the squeegee even made the tile shine. Overall, great product." —Richard Kraus

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in three sizes and three colors).

    18. A pumice cleaning stone you can use to rid your throne of those yucky stains (without scratching it up).

    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 $8.99 (also available in a two-pack).

    19. A Shark heated steam mop that'll glide across your bathroom floor, cleaning and sanitizing it without the use of harsh chemicals.


    Promising review: "So, I just had a professional cleaning service do a deep clean of my house. They did a great job. Then, just for kicks because I just bought it and wanted to try out my new toy, I mopped the hardwood floors in my house. No disrespect to the cleaning service because they did their best, but this mop pulled up the ground in dirt and grime that a traditional mop couldn't hope to touch. The bright white mop cover came up dark brown after just one pass! I'm super glad I bought this, and I'm really glad I bought the extra covers because I could easily use multiple covers during a cleaning! At first, I thought that the cord that came with it was excessively long, but now that I've used it, I'm glad it has such a long cord because I was able to reach my whole house with minimal cord movement." —Erin Conrad

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    20. An electric cordless power scrubber with four different brushes, guaranteed to assist you in removing tough grime from every inch of the restroom (like that gross area behind the toilet or the crevasses of your bathtub).


    The entire set is cordless, so you can easily move around your bathroom. Each brush is designed to tackle different things, from grout to shower walls.

    Promising review: "This little device is my new favorite thing! Cleaning our shower was my least favorite chore. Now I can get a deeper clean in less than half the time. I can get two cleanings out of a single charge. I love the different brush heads. The corner one is great for getting around the handle and in the shelves, while the flat head really scrubs the shower walls and floor. I am looking forward to seeing how this performs on the grout in our kitchen floor as well, and hoping that I can say goodbye to the old toothbrush method! After using this product once, our shower looked the cleanest it ever has since it was brand new." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $46.74+ (available in three colors).

    21. A multi-surface everyday spray cleaner so you can spritz the bathroom between deep cleanings for a fresh, clean scent that'll take care of any unwanted bathroom odors, while also removing dirt. Plus, Mrs. Meyer's products are cruelty-free.

    @mrsmeyerscleanday / Via

    Promising review: "Been using this for years. At first I thought it wouldn't clean as good as the harsh chemical cleaners I was using before, but I was wrong. My house smells amazing after cleaning my kitchen and bathrooms, and I'm not exposing my family and pets to toxic fumes. YAY." —Ernesto Ramirez

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $11.85.

    22. And a pack of microfiber cleaning cloths you can use to dry off the wet counter or dust the decor. They are super thick and absorbent to help you save on time and effort while giving the bathroom a full wipe-down.


    Promising review: "These are hands down the best cleaning cloths I have ever used for cleaning. I love that they are different colors because this allows me to keep them for separate tasks (i.e. dusting, bathroom, kitchen). After I use them I just throw them all in the wash together and they come out brand new. Such good quality and for a great price." —Shannon L.

    Get a five-pack from Amazon for $6.99.
