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. A Swiffer duster that'll help you reach every dust bunny in your house. It's made with coated fibres that'll stick to dust and hold on for dear life.

    Amazon / Via, Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    The handle comes with two dusters. You can pick up a box of refills here.

    It's so much easier to get those awkward or hard-to-reach spots like the fan or ceiling, and the fluffy fibres actually trap dust and dirt on contact, so I don't have to worry about it falling on the floor (or in my hair) while I'm cleaning. One duster can clean up multiple rooms in my house and then I just toss it in the trash when I'm done.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $5.97.

    2. A set of brushes that'll attach to your drill, so you can power scrub any surface in your home. The durable nylon bristles are tough on grime and safe to use on your bathroom tiles, tub, and countertops.

    The brushes come in four levels of stiffness (soft, medium, stiff, and hard). The yellow, green, and blue sets have a medium stiffness.

    3. A bottle of Dawn dish spray that'll save you some time scrubbing hardened food off your pots and pans. It works without water, so you just have to spray, wipe, and rinse your dishes clean.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    "It comes with cleaning solution, a razor, and a scrubbing tool. I own this stuff and it works actually magic on stuck-on food and oil splatters. I've seriously never seen my burners look cleaner than they do after using this stuff, and I'm so happy it doesn't cost a fortune (but I'd buy it even if it did)." —Alice Prendergast

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $9.99 (as an add-on item).

    5. A can of carpet and upholstery cleaner for cars that'll give your seats the deep clean they desperately need. It’ll clean mud, dirt, and salt stains, and it even has a brush on the lid if you need to tackle a particularly stubborn stain.

    They’re both colourless and odourless, so they won’t alter the shade or scent of your leather.

    Get a set of two from Amazon Canada for $30.54+. Available in two sizes.

    "I use this thing more as a fidget toy and for petting the bristles than for cleaning. My laptop is so gross that it's a little past hope, but this has tools have definitely helped make clearing out crumbs and erasing smudges easier and cleaning my computer more fun. It's extra handy for the rest of my desk and swiping away post-lunch debris!" — Katy Herman

    "The glove is super comfortable and using it couldn’t be more foolproof: just put it on and run your hands through your pet’s fur. That’s it! The silicone grooves pick up so much fur with ease. After a few runs, I found that I would have to remove fur from the glove before continuing (you can pick up the fur with your other hand or run the glove under some water — either works) but it’s no biggie." —AnaMaria Glavan

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    Some of my cooking pans are a little old and the non-stick coating is long gone. These scrapers make it infinitely easier to get food off, so I don't have to soak them in soapy water after every meal. I've used them on my dishes and clay baking pans, too, and they've never left a scratch.

    Get a set of three from Amazon Canada for $13.99.

    14. A Bissell steam mop that'll break down all the greasy, grimy spots on your floors, without using any chemicals. It's gentle enough to use on hardwood, linoleum, granite, and marble, and the pads come with small air-freshening pods that'll leave behind a fresh, clean scent.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    I live with two small children and, as a result, I'm constantly cleaning up after them. These magic erasers are a true blessing. I can quickly and effectively remove whatever mysterious marks and stains I find on tables, walls, and other surfaces in seconds, and all it takes is a little water and elbow grease.

You can use the flat side to clean the windows on your car and houses, and then use the brush side to catch all the stray hairs that get embedded in your carpets. The rubber bristles will collect them into a ball of fur that you can easily throw away.

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    "An embarrassing confession: my hair gets so ingrained in the carpet that a vacuum truly does nothing for it. In fact, to make matters worse, weird particles get stuck in the hair on the floor, which is stuck to the carpet, so I often was just unrooting clumps of hair from the floor with my hands (sorry for the visual). I bought this broom and it immediately started pulling it up GOBS of hair. My carpet like, genuinely changed colour (turns out the pink was supposed to be much pinker, whoops). Anyway, do with that semi-horrifying information what you will." —Emma Lord

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $22.31.

    18. A pair of microfibre gloves that'll make cleaning all those hard-to-reach spots a lot easier. They'll give you more control than a brush and they're soft enough that you can use them on any surface. They're reusable, so once you're done cleaning, you can throw them in the wash.

    Amazon / Via, Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    These gloves are honestly so much fun to use. Sometimes I go looking for things to dust. I can quickly wipe down large surfaces like counters, cupboards or tables or use them on smaller or more fragile items like the picture frames or perfume bottles, without worrying about breaking them. I usually keep one near my desk to wipe down my computer screen and desk, because it gets pretty dusty in my room. I love that I can just toss them in the wash when they start to look a little grungy.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $20.99.

    19. An angry little mama that'll literally blow off steam to soften and lift dirt and food stains from your microwave, making it so much easier to clean. Fill her body with a bit of water and vinegar, then put her in the microwave for seven minutes.

It's a powder, so all you have to do is sprinkle some on a wet surface and scrub away the grime.

    Amazon / Via, Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    "These are actual pictures from my actual bathtub! Yes, I am slightly mortified/embarrassed, but that feeling is completely outweighed by the true joy of experiencing these results. My arms hardly got a workout in and the tub grime was gone in five minutes. I can wholeheartedly say that I am no longer scared to take a shower in my own home!" —Kayla Suazo

    Amazon / Via, BuzzFeed / Via

    The TubShroom fits in most drains. To clean it, just remove the hair, and then wipe it down with a paper towel or cleansing wipe.

    "It’s so simple to install. You just pop it in the shower tub drain and you’re good to go. And it was much more SATISFYING than I ever thought possible! There aren’t any straggler hairs hanging around the drain anymore. All the hair is collected out of view! It takes approximately two seconds to clean. I just remove the hair with a piece of toilet paper and toss it in the garbage." —Sarah Aspler

    24. A super-cute lady bug vacuum cleaner that'll suck up small crumbs and dirt on your table, desk, or counter. It only works on dry particles, but it's a great device to have in your office if you eat lunch at your desk.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    It's a lot more powerful than I thought it would be. I recently knocked over a plant and it picked up every last speck of dirt on my table and floor. It even has a brush on the bottom that'll pick up loose hair, too. I usually keep it on my desk because it looks super cute there and it helps me clean up small messes, as soon as they happen.

    BuzzFeed / Natalie Brown

    "It easily picks up TONS of pet hair from furniture with some simple back-and-forth swipes. Then it's simple to pop open the back compartment and swoop that unbelievably big pile of collected hair right into the trash or compost. If you have pets that like to sprinkle their shed-glitter wherever they go — and especially on the furniture — I 100% recommend giving the Chom Chom a try!!" —Natalie Brown

But this spinning makeup brush cleaner has totally changed the game. I cleaned and dried all of my makeup brushes in under ten minutes. Now I'll actually clean them on the regular." ⁠—Kat Angus

It has a hands-free emptying button, and I also really love how it’s lightweight, fast to charge, and has a decent amount of suction.

I applied the Goo Gone, washed with soap and water, and voilà — the adhesive came right off. And bonus: It smells nice and citrusy! Definitely one of my best household purchases EVER." —Yi Yang
