    1. A dust pan and broom set that'll save you from having to bend over to sweep your floors. The dustpan even has a set of rubber teeth across to catch stray hairs from the broom bristles.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    The bristles on this broom are stiff as heck. Instead of pulling out the vacuum, I can give the rugs and carpeted floors in my house a quick sweep and this broom actually does the job. The idea of having to crouch down to sweep dirt into a dustpan is very unappealing for me, so I really love that the dustpan has a handle. The rubber teeth are another great feature, because I hate picking those stray pieces of fluff and hair from the bottom of my broom. And storing the set is a breeze and it doesn't take up anymore space than a traditional broom and dustpan.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $26.25+. Also available in green.

    2. A roll of reusable paper towels that you can use over 120 times before you throw them away. They're made of bamboo, making them incredibly durable and absorbent, and you can wash them by hand or pop them in the washing machine when they get dirty.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    You can even use them with your Swiffer to clean your floors. One roll of bamboo towels can replace up to 60 paper towel rolls.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $17.99+. Also available in packs of two and four.

    3. A pack of Clorox cleaning wipes that'll disinfect any surface in seconds. The wipes are gentle enough that you can use them on your devices and they come in a travel-sized package, so you can easily fit them it in your bag for emergencies.

    These wipes are just so handy. The package is small enough that I can keep one in my bag, without it taking up too much space. And I'll keep another one in the car to wipe down door handles or shopping carts before I enter the grocery store. I like that they don't have a strong chemical smell and they're not drenched in liquid, so I can use them on my phone or other devices, too.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $1.97.

    4. A pack of tiny reusable sponges that'll give your favourite footwear new life. They just need a bit of water to wipe away the scuffs and dirt on your sneakers — no scrubbing or cleaning solution necessary.

    5. A gel toilet stamp that'll stick to the inside of your toilet and give it a good clean every time you flush. No one likes cleaning the toilet and now you won't have to. It’ll last for up to 12 days — and it’s scented, so it’ll keep your bathroom smelling fresh.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    "This baby will save you from getting down on your hands and knees to scrub down your toilet bowl, because it does the work with every flush. It's actually really satisfying to use and I'm happy to report it works, too! It keeps my toilet smelling fresh and saves me from having to scrub away gross build-up on the bowl, meaning I have one less chore to do every week. This is the definition of working smarter, not harder, people!" —Alice Prendergast

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $9.98.

    6. A bottle of all-purpose cleaner that you can use on everything from floors and countertops to toilets and sports equipment. The formula is nontoxic, so it's safe to use on your kid's toys.

    And it'll leave behind the light, fruity scent of pomegranates instead of harsh chemicals.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $9.02.

    7. A small drain protector that'll catch stray hairs before they slide down the pipes. This genius tool will save you from a clogged drain and the disgusting chore of having to remove hair from it.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca, BuzzFeed / Via buzzfeed.com

    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

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $14.99+. Available in six colours.

    8. A pack of super-absorbent microfibre cloths that are gentle, but durable enough to use on any and every surface in your home. They can be used without chemical cleaners and won't leave behind lint or streak marks.

    Plus, they're completely reusable, so you can throw them in the washing machine with your dish towels for continued use.

    Get a pack of six from Amazon Canada for $34.49+. Available in packs of four multipacks.

    9. A bottle of stainless steel cleaner polish that'll clean and polish all your stainless steel surfaces. Reviewers love using it on their refrigerators, stove tops, and sinks to get rid of pesky fingerprint stains, grease, and smudges.

    Victoria Kuglin/BuzzFeed

    "I love that it works on all stainless steel products, like kettles and range hoods, so I don't have to juggle a million and one cleaning products during chore time." —Victoria Kuglin

    Check out BuzzFeed's full review of the Weiman Stainless Steel Cleaner (#35 on the list).

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $6.97+. Available in two sizes and packs of four.

    10. 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 amazon.ca, 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.

    11. A bottle of Goo Gone adhesive cleaner that'll remove the annoying residue that gets left behind from stickers. You can use on hard and soft surfaces to get rid practically any sticky substance (including wax, markers, crayons, glue, window decals, glitter, and gum).

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $15.79.

    12. A trio of pan scrapers that'll remove hardened food from your baking pans, so you won't have to use your nails or a knife to do it. They're made of nylon, so they won't scratch or damage your cookware.

    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.

    13. A long and flexible drain snake that has over 4,000 tiny hooks to pick up all the gunk and debris hiding in your kitchen and bathroom pipes. It’ll save you time and money in the long run, because you won’t have to hire a plumber or buy chemical drain cleaners. It’s absolutely disgusting, but incredibly satisfying to use.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $9.99+. Also available with rotating handle.

    14. A Mr. Clean Magic Eraser that'll actually remove all the stains you've been trying to get rid of for months. All it takes is a bit of water and a couple swipes to clean permanent marker, crayon stains, and scuff marks from all the surfaces in your home.

    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. Instead of scrubbing away stains with a bucket and cloth like Cinderella, I can quickly and effectively remove whatever mysterious marks and stains I find on tables, walls, and other surfaces in seconds. Like this beautiful crayon mural, for instance. It took less than a minute to clean up, and all it took was a little water and elbow grease.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $1.49.

    15. 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.

    16. A can of oven cleaner that'll dissolve all the grease stains and dried food residue lining the walls of your oven, broiler, or barbecue. Now you won't have to spend hours scrubbing away at your appliances to get them clean.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    This oven cleaner is magic in a can. It says you only have to leave it for a couple hours to get the best results, but I kind of forgot about it and didn’t remember until the next morning. But, boy did it work! All the grease and grime came off with a damp cloth and a flick of the wrist. It took me about five minutes to wipe down the entire oven, and as you can see, the results are impressive.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $5.49.

    17. A microfibre duster that is designed specifically to clean your window blinds. The three blades fit perfectly between each shutter, so you can dust two blinds at a time.

    The brush comes with five microfibre sleeves.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $19.99.

    18. A lil' broom and dust pan set that'll help you tackle all the small and random messes. You can keep it in the areas of your home that you use the most like your kitchen, office, or living room, so you won't have to hunt down a broom when you need it.

    "I know I reached adulthood when this lil' kit got me SO👏🏻FREAKIN'👏🏻EXCITED👏🏻. The slim shape is absolutely genius, tucking easily between bottles of cleaning sprays and miscellaneous under-the-sink items and saving me tons of storage space. Thanks to the silicone rimming, I can easily sweep every last fleck of debris into the dust pan, and the palm-sized broom is compact enough to fit where normal ones just can't go (like between appliances or under the sofa). Consider me swept away by this mini gizmo!" —Victoria Kuglin

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $12.99.

    19. A screen cleaning kit that'll keep your phone looking as good as new. The spray will disinfect your devices and the microfibre cloth will remove any dust particles, fingerprints, and other smudges from your screens.

    @whooshclean / Via instagram.com, @whooshclean / Via instagram.com

    The kit includes two bottles of cleaning solution and a microfibre cloth. It's small enough that you can keep it in your bag, so you can clean your phone even when you're on the go.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $17.99.

    20. An all-purpose cleaner that'll make any surface stain a thing of the past. You can use it both indoors and outdoors to remove anything from baked-on food and grease to rust and hard water stains. It's a powder, so all you have to do is sprinkle some on a wet surface and scrub away the grime.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca, Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    "When I moved into my apartment, I was shocked at how FILTHY every inch of it was. I'm not kidding — I don't think it had been cleaned since it was built in the 1890s. I immediately started scrubbing with a brush and the grossness started to disappear. And guys, my arms hardly got a workout in and the tub grime was gone in five minutes. 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. I can wholeheartedly say that I am no longer scared to take a shower in my own home!" —Kayla Suazo

    Get it from Linen Chest for $4.39 (originally $5.49).

    21. A tiny robotic vacuum that'll quietly clean your floors, so you won't have to. You can use it on carpeted and hardwood floors, and it'll run for up to 100 minutes before it needs to be emptied and recharged.

    All you have to do is make sure all your cables are neatly tucked away, so this sleek-looking rugrat doesn't get tangled up.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $279.99+. Available in black and white.

    22. A small-but-mighty vacuum cleaner that barely weighs three pounds, so you can carry it up and down the stairs without throwing out your back. It can also detach from the stick to become handheld, making it much easier to vacuum every inch of your house.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    There are only a couple places in my house that have carpet and one of them is the stairs. The big vacuum I previously used was so heavy and cumbersome that I usually just swept the stairs with a broom. This vacuum, by comparison, is so lightweight and fits perfectly on each step. Plus, I can convert it into a handheld vacuum in seconds to get to those hard to reach spots!

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $38.28.

    23. 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.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $19.98.

    24. A bottle of hand soap that'll clean your hands, without leaving them feeling dry. It's made with aloe vera, olive oil, so it'll add moisture back into your skin instead of stripping it away.

    "This is, hands down, the best household soap I've ever used. The soft floral smell is particularly refreshing, and a huge improvement over all the artificial scents on the market. It doesn't leave my hands feeling tacky or gritty afterwards, so I can spend less time at the sink and more time actually living my life." —Victoria Kuglin

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $5.97+. Also available in a pack of three.

    25. A shower squeegee that'll remove water from the shower walls, so you're left with a clean, streak-free surface. It'll help prevent water spots, soap scum, and mildew from building up.

    It comes with a suction cup hook, so you can hang it on the wall for easy access.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $14.01.

    26. 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.

    "I live in an apartment without a dishwasher, and I honestly use that as an excuse to order takeout food instead of cooking. But, as soon as I got my hands on a bottle of this stuff (regular Dawn is my go-to dish soap, BTW), I put it to use on both a saucepan I used to make homemade enchilada sauce *and* the casserole dish I baked those enchiladas, which had a ton of caked-on food. It really does work like I say it does! Like, scary well." —Elizabeth Lilly

    Check out BuzzFeed's full review of the Dawn Platinum Powerwash Dish Spray (#9 on the list).

    Get it from Home Depot for $5.99 or from Amazon Canada for $5.97.

    27. A mini power scrubber that'll give your extra grimy surfaces a little love. The little rotating head is the perfect size to deep clean the smallest nooks and crannies in your home (like the grout and tiles in your bathroom).

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    "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 started by using the specialty grout brush, which is costs a few extra $$, but then I decided to try it with the default brush and that seemed to work just as well, IMHO!" —Natalie Brown

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $15.99.

    28. A handheld vacuum with a long and narrow nozzle that fits in the tight and awkward corners of your house and car. The detachable dirt bowl and filter makes it super easy to dump out waste and clean it between uses.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $60.23.

    29. An eco-friendly cleansing shampoo that'll wash all your makeup brushes, applicators, and sponges, because it's been a while, TBH. It's free of fragrance and petroleum-based ingredients, so it won't leave your skin irritated.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca, BuzzFeed / Heather Braga

    "I could not believe how much residue came off my brushes in just one cleaning. You only need to use a little dab of the shampoo, so one bottle will definitely last a long time. A silicone pad made it super easy to thoroughly lather the brushes without leaving my bathroom sink in shambles. My brushes look brand new!" —Heather Braga

    Check out BuzzFeed's full review of the EcoTools Makeup Brush Cleansing Shampoo (#16 on the list).

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $12.99. Also available in packs of two.

    30. 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 amazon.ca, 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 $4.97.

    31. And finally, a pet hair-removing roller that'll make you cut ties with your lint roller immediately. It's reusable, so you won't have to worry about buying refills. And you can use it on any fabric in the house to pick up every last strand of dreaded dog or cat hair.

    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
