    1. A plant-based stainless steel cleaner to remove streaks, marks, and fingerprints from all of your appliances with *one wipe* of the included microfiber cloth. And more importantly, KEEP the fingerprints and watermarks from coming back long after you're done wiping.

    amazon.com

    Reviewers claim their fingerprint-free fridge lasts for even WEEKS!

    Get the set of cleanser and polish from Amazon for $14.97.

    Promising review: "This is the best stainless steel cleaner I have ever used! It works its magic on stainless without streaking โ€” the single most annoying issue with stainless cleaners โ€” and it keeps the finish clean and glowing long after youโ€™ve used it. This cuts down on cleaning time and that is a big plus! Your appliances will look like new and best of all โ€” you donโ€™t have to polish until your arms fall off! The product is creamy and soft and it smells fresh and natural. Iโ€™d give it 10 stars if I could." โ€”Beachgirl

    2. A Dyson cordless stick vacuum perfect for little vacuuming jobs between your deep cleans. This bb is super lightweight, so you can reach those pesky corner cobwebs without tiring out your arms, and it sucks up hair, dust, and deep-set carpet dirt in no time flat.

    Amazon

    It quickly transforms to a handheld vac too!

    Get it from Amazon for $199.99 (currently 50% off!).

    Promising review: "This is an amazing device. The suction is as good as my old, corded Dyson (from 2006). It's light. The fact that it's cordless is awesome โ€” I didn't realize how much fighting with the cord on my old vacuum contributed to making the chore of cleaning onerous. The battery lasts in normal cleaning mode more than long enough to do our entire downstairs, over 2000 sq ft. Because it only runs when you pull the trigger, you're not wasting battery life when you move from room to room, so the total time I spend cleaning is longer than the battery life. The attachment for stairs is excellent. It works equally well on hardwood floors and carpet." โ€”Max G.

    3. A Feed n Wax Wood conditioner that'll basically erase years of damage (looking at you, drink rings) and polish up beautifully, bringing out the natural color and sheen of your pieces โ€” whether the wood is finished or unfinished โ€” *and* add a layer of protection and shine for weeks to come. All with one product and one application.

    amazon.com

    All you have to do is apply with a cloth, wait 20 minutes (perfect time for a mid-cleaning snack!) and wipe off the excess.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48.

    Promising review: "Wasn't sure if I should trust all the reviews, but wow, this stuff really works! I recently bought an older, antique walnut dining table that had some moisture/heat rings, and this stuff totally got them out. I wish I had a 'before' picture to post, but I've been happy to see that the results have lasted for a few weeks. I figured I'd have to re-polish the wood every few days to keep it looking good, but nope, it still looks great. Just to note, my table is stained, but not lacquered, so I can't speak to how the product works on lacquered finishes." โ€”Amazon Customer

    4. A grooming glove designed with nodules on the fingers and palms to make brushing the excess hair from your cat or dog more like petting โ€” and keep those pesky strands from accumulating on your furniture (and clothes).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Fantastic dog grooming aid! Our older rescue dog isn't too keen on the routine dog brushing stuff but her thick coat really needs the grooming โ€” this dog grooming glove is the exactly right answer. Put the glove on, pet the dog, and all that loose hair comes away leaving her coat feeling so much smoother and softer without causing her to be nervous or upset over a brushing. Highly recommend, and yes I'm going to be ordering as gifts for a couple of other dog owners I know!" โ€”DSP

    Get each glove from Amazon for $6.99 (available in both left-handed and right-handed versions).

    5. A pair of bunny slippers that'll sweep and dust the floors while you walk to the kitchen for a snack. You can also detach the mopping part, if you just want to chill.

    Amazon

    Get them from Amazon for $13.99 (available in four sizes and 15 colors, patterns, and animals)

    Promising review: "I love this so much. It feels a lot like hotel slippers but less flimsy because of the mop part. You will not feel like youโ€™re wearing a mop when wearing these. I have hardwood floors so i vacuum a lot and rarely mop. These work so well in getting the dirt off the floor just by walking around doing your daily thing. I just throw the whole thing in the wash when it gets dirty!" โ€”passionfrootgreentea

    6. A three-sectioned splatter guard so you can make bacon, stir fries, and any other stovetop dish without getting grease and grime all over your counter and walls.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $5.55.

    Promising review: "This is my new favorite kitchen 'gadget.' I loved it so much, I bought a second one. I bought it to wrap around pans while cooking so that grease splatter does not travel to walls, counter tops, other burners and so on. I also use it outside on my stainless table when I am cooking outside; it protects the siding of my house from any splatter. The product is nonstick, as advertised, and hinged. It is flexible, so I can adjust it as needed around my pan or griddle. It stands well around cookware, just as the picture displays. Cleanup is a breeze with the nonstick coating. It lays flat when not in use. My home stays much cleaner thanks to this handy splatter guard! Love it!" โ€”Lisa A.

    7. A set of reusable liners to keep your oven cleaner than ever. No worries if your lasagna drips over or your sweet potatoes ooze a little โ€” you won't have to scrub out the oven, just remove these when the oven cools and you can wash 'em right up in the sink.

    Amazon

    And you can trim them with a pair of scissors to fit whatever size oven you have.

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $12.95.

    Promising review: "I have used these liners for years. I hate cleaning my oven and this liner has saved me so much time and effort, not to mention my oven always looks like new. I should comment on the durability of these liners. It recommends that you remove the liner before initiating the self-cleaning feature on the oven. I admit that I have forgotten a couple times. Although it does the liner no good, it does stand up to the tremendous heat. I would recommend this liner for every busy person who has no time or desire to clean their oven. It's amazing." โ€”Cartec

    8. A handy-dandy plate cover to keep food-plosions from splattering the inside of your microwave (looking at you, tomato sauce and baked beans!). It has magnets on top, so you can store it *in* the microwave between uses so your fam never forgets to cover their food again.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (also available in black).

    Promising review: "We've had regular microwave splatter covers before โ€” & they are a hassle, get misplaced, take up space, & clutter up the kitchen. This microwave splatter cover, however, is really nice. The enclosed magnets make it possible to keep the cover inside the microwave at all times โ€” whether in use or not. To use, simply pull the cover down over your food. When finished, just lift the cover, & the magnets fasten it to the top inside of the microwave! This way you're not constantly having to remove the cover when putting something into the microwave, then replace it back over your food, & finally having to remove it once again when the food is ready. A very nifty, convenient way to keep your microwave clean! I love it! ๐Ÿ‘" โ€”Olivia358

    9. An odor-eliminating candle that'll truly knock out the worst pet stinks and leaving your home smelling ahhh-mazing...even if you haven't picked up that lemon-fresh multipurpose cleaner in a few days.

    Amazon

    They're made with soy wax that burns for up to 70 hours, plus the scents are allergy friendly!

    Get it from Amazon for $21.95 (available in 25 scents).

    Promising review: "This smells so great. I recently rescued a dog. I love him, but not how he makes my house smell. This really does kill the odor long after you extinguish it. I can't wait to try more scents. I even bought the Pet House car fresheners." โ€”Claws0617

    Check out a BuzzFeeder's review for more info.

    10. A sink cleaner and polish formulated to use on stainless steel AND porcelain sinks (plus cast iron, corian, acrylic, and more) to restore that just-like-new shine *and* protect against further damage. Reviewers note this polish basically REPELS new stains.

    amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $4.04.

    Promising review: "Amazing. Keeps my sink looking clean for days. Repels food particles and liquids just bead up and rinse away. Sink cleans up with just water for up to a week. Just love it." โ€”cuteGSP

    11. A Cerama-Bryte cooktop cleaning kit, which includes cooktop cleaning solution, a scrubbing pad, and a scraper so you can absolutely remove every bit of baked- and caked-on food from any smooth range in minutes โ€” no matter how long it's been there. And keep those ~pasta over-boiling~ mess headaches to a minimum.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Get the kit from Amazon for $10.29.

    Promising review: "I've been using Cerama Bryte for over 10 years on my ceramic stove top and it always rejuvenates the surface to a new-like finish. I've found that cleaning the cook surface with a quality spray like Simple Green to remove superficial gunk followed by a razor scraping initially, works best. Follow up with Cerama Bryte and you will be impressed with the result. I've also found regularly using Cerama Bryte on the cook top makes the next clean up easier; it seals the ceramic and provides lasting protection." โ€”Cal Blue

    12. A pet hairโ€“removing roller with a patented brush design (and *no* adhesive strips) to rid your lovely black sofa of all your furry friend's shedding in a quick roll rather than an intense vacuuming session โ€” so you can get back to cuddling together.

    amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    Promising review: "We live in a household that contains two humans, two dogs, and two cats. It's a real Noah's Ark furnished with a black sectional couch. Our dogs absolutely hate the vacuum. So much so they will attack the cleaner head with their vicious bite even before we power it on. This makes the task of cleaning our couch extremely unpleasant and nearly impossible. Thanks to Chom Chom, we no longer have this problem! With a simple, quick, SOUNDLESS sweep, we're able to keep our couch pet-hair-free in blissful peace. This tool does an amazing job picking up pet hair but not so much with crumbs. We were so impressed, we gifted these as Christmas presents for all of our pet-loving friends." โ€”Magpie

    13. A pack of Scrubbing Bubbles stick-on gels to freshen and prevent buildup with every flush, so you can go longer between scrubs โ€” without compromising on your clean. You not having to do *anything* = truly efficient.

    youtube.com, amazon.com

    Each gel stamp lasts for about 12 days (depending on how often you flush), each refill has six gel stamp uses, and each box has two refills. So one box will keep your toilet clean for at least 144 days.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.44.

    Promising review: "I live in a two-story house with three men, so needless to say, our downstairs toilet becomes quite a mess no less than three days after I clean it. But with this product, it keeps the bathroom smelling fresh, the toilet looking clean, and me feeling less grossed out about cleaning the toilet at the end of the week! I highly recommend this product for anyone with a house full of guys, or just someone who hates cleaning the toilet as much as I do. You could easily not scrub your bowl for two weeks and not have to worry about stuck on grossness." โ€”Vanessa

    14. A ๐Ÿ™Œ no-scrub, no-rinse ๐Ÿ™Œ cleaner to spray on after every shower and keep your shower clean and mildew-free between deep cleanings. AND it's biodegradable and non-toxic. Win win!

    amazon.com

    Just always keep it hanging from your shower rod like this genius reviewer!

    Get it from Amazon for $2.98 (check out all the sizes and scents available here).

    Promising review: "Just spray and leave. My husband and I mist the shower after every use, even on the glass shower doors. No more scrubbing. This product helps keep the hard water stains, bacteria, and mold away naturally. I love it!" โ€”Amazon Customer

    15. A mold & mildew removing gel, because you don't need to get your whole shower redone once this is in your life. Just squeeze out and let this non-drip gel work its magic overnight โ€” NO s c r u b b i n g. And the mold won't come back for a whiiiiiiiiiile.

    amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    Promising review: "This stuff is seriously the best. I had been scrubbing at the mildew stains in the shower forever using various cleaning products and yet they remained. I had basically resigned myself to a gross-looking shower. Then I somehow stumbled across this stuff and decided to give it a whirl. It could not be easier, and it actually works! Just make sure the shower is dry and apply the gel to the mildew. Let it sit for a long time (like overnight or all day while youโ€™re at work) and make sure no one uses it during that time. Rinse it off when you get back and you are good to go! Zero scrubbing required. I was amazed to see all of the stubborn mildew stains GONE. The one thing I will say is that it might seem a little pricey. It took one whole bottle to effectively clean my shower. The upside is that the mildew didnโ€™t come back for six months. So, two bottles per year for a mildew-free shower seems worth it to me!" โ€”Celestial

    16. A Swiffer WetJet that'll make effortless daily cleaning, or spill-by-spill spot cleaning of your floors (even hardwood!) easier than ever. Just release cleaner with the push of a button and the mopping pads will *absorb* dirt, grime, and spills rather than just pushing them around like a normal mop.

    Amazon

    Get the starter kit from Amazon for $22.97.

    Promising review: "Its better than a mop and worth every penny. Bought a Walmart knock off and I still ended up buying the real thing. Cuts the mopping chore down to a 1/10 of the time and allows spot cleaning without getting on your hands and knees."

    17. Washing machine cleaning tablets to blast away any hidden mold or mildew, meaning your towels will come out of the wash *actually* clean, not mysteriously stinky. Aka you can do a load a litttttle less often.

    Amazon

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $10.78.

    Promising review: "I have been using bleach to clean my machine for some time, but decided to give this a try a few months ago. My very first clean with Affresh left me surprised and delighted for not only did it clean my machine, it eliminated the nasty smell that always transferred to my clothes thanks to a build up of mold I didn't even know about. Every month now, I toss a tablet into the drum and let it work its magic. Now, my machine is cleaner than ever, and my clothes always smell wonderfully fresh. I highly recommend this to everyone." โ€”Kelli Crawford

    18. Antimicrobial silicone sponges that'll never get stinky โ€” they're almost 100% resistant to mold and mildew, more durable than regular sponges, and won't scratch your pots and pans. Now you can run it though the dishwasher a little less often, saving you time and effort.

    Amazon

    They *guarantee* that each scrubber sponge will stay odor-free for at least three months.

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $9.95.

    Also available in a version designed to clean your stovetop!

    Promising review: "My girlfriend has a keen nose for mildew, which meant we were throwing out kitchen sponges well before they were worn out. I came across these and was very happy with the first ones we tried. Absolutely no odor, even after several weeks worth of usage. The scrubber will break down long before it starts to smell. A definite winner in my book!" โ€”Amazon Customer

    19. A carpet spot remover so you can banish wine stains, pet stains, and what-the-heck-even-is-that stains โ€” WITHOUT dragging out the carpet-cleaning machine.

    amazon.com

    Enjoy this before and after photo of this stain remover WIPING OUT an "IDK how long this has been there" cat vomit stain. Gross! But also amazing! And btw: it also works on upholstery, woodwork, and even walls.

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $16.88.

    Promising review: "This is by far THE BEST carpet cleaner out there!! I love this product! Do you have the following on your carpet...Old stains? Ketchup? Ice cream? Pet potty, marker, weird odd stains that shouldn't be there but your kids deny they did it... This is your product! I was desperate to get the stains out from the messy kids. I didn't spray it, I poured this on the stain enough to get it super wet. Walked away for about 3-5 mins to soak on the old stains and scrubbed it with a hard bristle brush. And boom, no more stains!!!!!! Seriously. I'm buying in bulk. LOVE this stuff. Product arrived quickly and brand new." โ€”Sandra McDade

    20. A pack of textured Clorox wipes for kicking the cleaning power up a notch on even little touch-up jobs, thanks to built-in microscubbers that'll tackle the toughest messes on any surface. Crusted-on stove spill? Break one of these bbs out and forget about it.

    Amazon

    Get a pack of three canisters from Amazon for $14.94.

    Promising review: "Wow these are great. I use them just about everywhere. They do a great job on stoves. The micro-scrubber portion does the job quite well. I will keep using these for quick clean ups." โ€”M. Shell

    21. A quiet, energy-efficient air purifier that'll help remove airborne dust, allergens, smoke, pet dander, and more, no matter how many furry friends you have around the house. Who has time to keep up with all that dusting?!

    amazon.com

    It removes odors, has three fan speeds and timer settings, plus an *optional* night light so you can keep it in your room without disturbing your Chamber of Complete Darkness.

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99.

    Promising review: "We have three different Levoit air purifiers. This model is one of the noisiest. With that being said it actually does the job. The home we live in has a constant dust problem. Before I was having to dust every three days. So far I havenโ€™t had the need to dust. Iโ€™m super excited, Itโ€™s been 11 days! The location of this purifier is in the boys room 12x13. Works well to get all the teenage smells out. Lol. My son likes to turn all lights off and have it running. That was a feature I didn't know it had. Itโ€™s a keeper!" โ€”lopez

    22. A drain snake to snag all the hairs and goop that's clogging the system โ€” in one quick pull, so the gross water that keeps backing up stops leaving that Ring of Filth in your tub.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    It has over 4,000 micro hooks and a slim design to shimmy down any drain (you don't even need to remove the cover). I've used this myself on a clogged sink AND shower drain and let me tell you as someone who has a ton(!!) of hair โ€” it truly works.

    Get it from Amazon for $5.28.

    Promising review: "I bought one of these because of the reviews and I thought, with six kids I know we have slow drains. So I break it out on a Saturday night and started with my bathroom sink. OH MY GOSH! Disgustingly amazing. In two seconds I pulled out a massive hair/soap clog. It was truly amazing and so gross! I went to work on the other bathroom drains and they weren't nearly as amazing or as quick but I pulled a bunch of dried hair out of the kids' tub. So after five drains, I had my fun. I've spent a small fortune on Drano type products that never seem to work. I won't buy them again. I was even so amazed I shared the nasty pic on Facebook and didn't think twice about somebody judging me. Get this. Be prepared to throw it away as you're not going to want to clean it." โ€”Jennifer R. Little
