    1. Fruit and veggie wash because right now, you just rinse your produce in hot water, right? Or in vinegar? This spray will work a lil' harder to remove wax, soil, agricultural chemicals, and any other residue found on regular and organic fruits and vegetables.

    Promising review: "This stuff is great and I have ordered it several times. In the past, I just rinsed fruit or vegetables, but I was at the grocery store recently and saw a very cute kid touching all the fruit. He also had a runny nose and I just thought, 'better remember to really wash the fruit when I get home.' The great thing about Veggie Wash is you can feel the wax film wash off of certain fruit. It really does a great job of cleaning and doesn't leave any odd smell or taste. As I said, I've bought this before and make sure my kitchen always has a spray bottle nearby." —Me in SoCal

    2. A duster brush just for your blinds that'll def be a perfect pick if the thought of all the dust from your shutters makes you, well, ~shudder~. 😅

    5-star reviews: 1,610+

    The brush has microfiber sleeves that'll actually pick up all of the dust so you don't have to do so many swipes. It cleans two blinds at once and will come in especially handy for folks with plantation-style blinds which are thicker and wider and therefore collect even more dust. Oh yeah, the microfiber sleeves are removable and washable PLUS you'll get an extra four so they'll be interchangeable. Woot!

    Promising review: "Where has this blind cleaner been for the past 50 years???? I have struggled to keep my blinds clean for so many years and happily found this item. It WORKS!!! And I love that it comes with extra sleeves, and the sleeves are machine washable. The handle is plastic, but I feel confident it won't break any time soon." —Marionvgt

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in two colors).

    3. A battery-powered scrubber with a super sturdy handle so you can get into even the smallest of nooks and crannies properly. With the oscillating bristles, there'll be no real wrist work involved!

    5-star reviews: 3,570+

    Promising review: "What a difference five minutes with this and Bar Keepers Friend can make! I was getting ready to refinish a dresser and the thought of having to scrub and polish all of the hardware had me thinking I should replace rather than reuse. I decided that I would use a toothbrush to attempt to keep the original hardware but saw this option and gave it a try. It was magic! Honestly, less than five minutes of scrubbing revealed the beauty of the hardware and while I need to do a little more work with the grout head (which I immediately ordered), the results were great. Since then, I have used it to clean those icky places on pots and pans by the handle, on small appliances, and more. I had to stop myself from roaming around the house looking for places to try it on! It's worth the money. I think I am going to get rechargeable batteries for it (but truly, I have used for over a month and the batteries are still fine)." —cphilburn

    Get it from Amazon for $19.

    4. Dryer vent cleaners to brush out the dust and debris that's (definitely!!!) hiding beneath the filter that you actually do clean regularly.,

    5-star reviews: 6,2220+

    Promising review: "I was a little skeptical when I took this out of the package, yet my doubt turned to joy LOL. These are a great buy and I believe will serve my dryer well past its lifetime. My dryer is only a year old and I ALWAYS, after every use, clean the lint filter. I was surprised how much settles to the base of the dryer underneath the filter trap. You may have to use this a few times depending on your machine to get all the lint out but at least you'll get results. Yes, I know its easier to use the vacuum to get it out, I prefer not lugging the vacuum out for this and this is cheaper AND I can give one away since they give you two." —P. Andersen

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95.

    5. Extra-long gloves with gripping ridges at the top so they don't slip off or get water trapped inside while you wash dishes or clean the toilet. (But ofc, don't clean your kitchen and bathroom toilet with the same gloves bc... well... right?)

    Reviewer's hand wearing the long glove

    5-star reviews: 1,060+

    Promising review: "The gloves literally make me want to clean everything. They are LONG so they reach all the way to my elbow, which is dreamy because I never get water down my gloves anymore. Also, the value is great. They come with three pairs! Just buy them." —Pickybutreasonable

    Get them from Amazon for $12.99 (available in a set of 3).

    6. A rust-busting spray gel to get rid of pesky stains around your house that'll only ever roll their eyes and suck their teeth at bleach and baking soda. Just picture this spray saying, "Hold my beer" as the other cleaning products stand on the sidelines in awe.

    5-star reviews: 2,970+

    It's practically a must-have for anyone who deals with well or hard water.

    Promising review: "I have used EVERY product on the market to clean my tub for the last 15 years, to no avail. Some products knock the top layer of rust off (like CLR or Scrubbing Bubbles). Others do nothing to the stains, even after I scrub for hours (like bleach with a Brillo pad or Dawn/vinegar or baking soda scrub). The pictures speak for themselves! I got it this clean with three applications and 30 minutes, with only wiping the gel off between applications! I’ve never seen it this sparkly clean. I just bought a year’s worth of this brand’s other products (cleaning powder, gel spray, and toilet bowl cleaner)!" —Shawkawkaw

    Get it from Amazon for $4.97.

    7. A Mr. Clean Turbo Plunger and Bowl brush caddy set to save more space near your porcelain throne and keep both cleaning items close together.

    5-star reviews: 7,200+

    Promising review: "Plungers are a surprisingly difficult thing to buy. You have to make sure they’re sturdy and provide enough suction so that you’re not plunging endlessly to no avail. We’ve had this set for two years and it just works. No matter what the toilet has been clogged with (and I’m a mom of two toddler boys so use your imagination here), this plunger has handled the job masterfully, never requiring more than two to three pushes. The brush is also very functional and sturdy. I’m a huge fan of this set and am actually writing this review as I add a second set to my cart so I can stop shuffling it back and forth between bathrooms." —The Tech Couple

    Get it from Amazon for $16.41.

    8. An extendable microfiber duster so you can keep the dust in your home — yep, even in the hardest-to-reach areas — to a minimum at all times.


    5-star reviews: 1,040+

    It'll come with an adjustable handle that extends from 24 to 49 inches, a shorter handle, a detachable fluffy duster end, and a detachable microfiber duster for deeper cleaning.

    Promising review: "Perfect for my needs. Love the telescoping design and that it has no protruding joints that would prevent it from fitting underneath furniture with low clearance. Reaches under, behind, and around all the tight spaces I can't get to without moving heavy furniture around. The duster is also very lightweight and can handle delicate situations." —Sjay

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    9. All-purpose Clorox cleaner so you can get down and dirty (but actually, clean) with the germ elimination in your house. It's designed to kill 99.99% of bacteria which isn't exactlyyyy 100% but it'll still do, right? 😊

    spray bottle

    5-star reviews: 6,340+

    Promising review: "The smell isn’t overbearing like some bleach cleaners and it works great in my bathroom and my kitchen. I clean almost everything with it because it also disinfects." —Good to go
    Get it from Target for $3.89.

    10. An automatic vacuum cleaner because it could all be so much simpler than trying to figure out whose day it is to vacuum in the house. It'll work via remote on carpets, tile, and hardwood floors. Plus, you can set a timer so it'll clean every day on its own.

    5-star reviews: 3,160+

    I watched this thing work in person (at my bestie's new house full of hardwood floors) and was pleasantly surprised to find that it really picks up even the tiniest floor particles and moves easily around (and under) furniture. It'll run on a 110-minute cycle with different cleaning modes and your preset vacuuming times. From what I've seen, it's also pretty good around pets too, although that will depend on your pets' temperament specifically. My bestie's hyper 'frady-cat puppy was super chill about this vacuum, surprisingly.

    Promising review: "This vacuum is so amazing! I bought it because after having a second baby, I barely have time to vacuum and I have a toddler who likes to roll around on the carpet. It gets extremely messy with his snacks so I needed to vacuum every day. This vacuum saved me so much time because now I don’t need to vacuum and my toddler started to pick up his toys to clear the way for his new 'robot friend.' This vacuum actually picked up more dust than my original vacuum and it will dock itself when it needs to charge or when you are done with it. This is an amazing vacuum with a lower price!" —Happy Mom

    Get it from Amazon for $147.99 (originally $187.99).

    11. Pet stain remover that'll remove even spots that seem impossible to get out *and* the assaulting odors that can come along with them.

    Top photo shows a pets tinkle time evidence in a reviewer's carpet while the bottom "after" photo shows the same reviewer's carpet cleared up after the cleaner. Someone's probably getting their security deposit back.

    5-star reviews: 31,320+

    Very impressive note: At least TWO reviewers put their CSI hats on and straight-up used a blacklight on their carpets to make sure the spots were gone-gone according to science — and per their before-and-afters, they were! 😱

    Promising review: "This is the only cleaner we found to take out really old pet urine stains and the smell!! I poured the cleaner directly onto the stain, let it sit for an hour, and then used a regular rug cleaner with this cleaner again and the stains were gone! Not only did it clean the carpet but it also took out the very strong pet urine smell we had that we couldn't get rid of no matter what we treated it with. This is worth the money and I'll be buying more!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97+ (available in 32-ounce and one-gallon sizes).

    12. Laundry bags so all your delicates come back clean WITHOUT being destroyed by an aggressive wash cycle. Say it with me: "No 👏🏿 more 👏🏿 misshapen 👏🏿 bras 👏🏿!"


    5-star reviews: 17,830+

    Promising review: "I am 200% satisfied after using these laundry bags. Both the quality and functionality are great. This set includes seven bags of varying sizes which Is fantastic. The largest bag is big enough for a winter sweater, which I have never seen before! My issues with zipper products are usually that they are cheap and don’t last long, but the Godooda mesh bags have great quality zippers. I was so happy with them that I bought another for my daughter! You will love having a selection of sizes for just about any delicates you may be washing!" —SM

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in three styles and different quantities).

    13. Ecotools makeup brush shampoo so you can clean those brushes regularly and quickly. It'll get your makeup brushes back to looking like new and it's also, ya' know, the hygienic thing to do!

    5-star reviews: 21,140+

    Fun fact: Using caked-up makeup brushes can lead to acne flare-ups so cleaning your brushes could help you handle multiple problems! Your face is probably gonna thank you for taking care of business.

    Promising review: "This cleanser is great! It fully removes all makeup from the brushes without leaving them feeling beat up. (I'm not the most gentle when it comes to cleaning brushes). I use a thick foundation that soaks heavily into the bristles but this removed it all. At first, I thought the formula was a bit thin but after using it, I learned that a little bit goes a long way. It has a nice lather and it easily rinses out product. I use this with a brush cleaner scrubby. I was able to clean my brushes much faster than normal, and I feel more confident that I got all the makeup off the bristles. This has a very slight (not strong at all) scent of grapefruit. It's refreshing without me having to worry about it irritating my face or leaving a fragrance left on my brushes." —Kryssy

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    14. Washing machine tablets to make laundry day a less irritating experience since they prevent mildew and mold from growing in your washer and reversing all the work you do to your clothes and linens.

    model's hand holding a tablet as they're about to put it in a washer

    5-star reviews: 76,200+

    Buying an entirely new washer? Psssshh! That's for adult-adults and we'll be pushing that very sophisticated purchase back a bit.

    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 tablets left me surprised and delighted for not only did it clean my machine, but it also 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." —Kelli Crawford

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (for a pack of six).

    15. Glass-cleaning wipes that so many reviewers say will clear up your glasses, tech screens, camera lenses, and more without leaving behind residue.,

    5-star reviews: 22,000+

    Promising review: "These wipes work for us. We use them on our eyeglasses (that have anti-reflective coatings), phone screens, and computer monitor screens. A single wipe will do both of our glasses and both of our phones. And, there's no streaky residue like we have had in the past with other wipes." —John S.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (comes in a box of 210 individually wrapped wipes).

    16. Green Gobbler Drain Clog Dissolver to gobble up hair and other gunk taking up space in your drains in minutes! You can use it for toilets, sinks, and tubs.

    a green bottle with two openings with twist-off caps at the top of it

    5-star reviews: 31,580+

    Green Gobbler is plant-based, biodegradable (yayyy environment!), odorless, and non-corrosive so it won't damage your pipes in the process.

    Promising review: "OK... So I have to do a little review on this product BECAUSE I have had a stopped-up kitchen sink and have LITERALLY tried EVERYTHING down to the industrial products with NO luck. I decided to go on Amazon and read a few reviews. This is the one I decided to go with. I only used one chamber, let it sit for an hour, and then used boiling water. My sink is NO LONGER stopped up!!! I saved a plumber bill and this was $11.97. HUGE win for this woman!!" —Tabpeach

    Get it from Amazon for $11.97.

    17. A pumice cleaning stone so you get hard-to-remove grime off your toilet bowl, tile floors, grills, sinks, and more. Plus, you'll do it all without getting your hands dirty thanks to that helpful handle.,

    5-star reviews: 10,030+

    Reviewers especially loved it for getting hard water stains out of their toilets.

    Promising review: "THIS IS THE BEST THING EVERRRRRR!! Our toilets are old and have hard water stains in them. I clean them (admittedly less than) religiously but I could never get the hard water stains off. So, I thought I would give this rock-on-a-stick a try before I ended up smashing all our toilets in frustration and embarrassment. My rock-on-a-stick arrived and, in the words of John Oliver, 'PRAISE BE.' THIS THING IS A MIRACLE-WORKER. It requires very little scrubbing and my dang toilets look brand spanking new! Seriously! I am thinking about inviting the Queen over for a nice tinkle because that is how clean my toilets are." —Octomeggo

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (also available in a pack of two).

    18. Wood polish and conditioner to make even the most high-traffic wood surfaces in your house look brand-spankin' new. One scroll through the before-and-after pictures for this product on Amazon and it'll be very clear why it has so many 5-star reviews.

    5-star reviews: 16,950+

    Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn-out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs that jumped up and scratched places. We also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were and several other areas that were just worn from heavy traffic... This stuff was like a Magic Eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let it sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand-new. I'm buying a couple more so we can finish our cabinets and wood paneling. We're so glad we found this product." —Kris

    Get it from Amazon for $11.34.

    19. A pet hair removal roller because it's time you started carrying your pet's love all over your heart and not all over your clothes, couch, car, bed, hopes, dreams, visions, etc. Ha! This roller will make everything hair-free with just a few swipes.,

    5-star reviews: 43,660+

    It'll also remove lint and dander. Plus, it'll be easy to clean since the roller traps the particles in a compartment that you can open up and dump out. The reusability makes it pretty ideal and you won't have to worry about running out of stickies as you would with a traditional lint roller.

    Promising review: "I have searched and searched for a pet hair remover for my furniture that actually works — this is it. It removes all the hair quickly and fully and self cleans. It is so much easier than disposable rollers — not to mention cheaper and more environmentally friendly. I have ditched those altogether. I’m buying two more for other rooms in my house. Amazing success!!!" —Sophia P.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    20. Bottle Bright tablets so you can stop feeling that little tug of doubt every time you sip from your favorite water bottle about whether or not you got ~every~ bit of nastiness out of it the last time you cleaned it. These tablets will remove the bacteria, stains, and odors that are often left in water bottles and coffee tumblers. Sip in peace, peeps!

    5-star reviews: 18,990+

    Promising review: "At work, we have stainless steel coffee pots with a plastic top that no one cleans and they are often left on for hours at a time. The bottoms got very gross and someone tried to clean them with hot water and soap but not much happened. I bought these, added hot water and two tablets (since they are bigger than a water bottle), and let the pots sit overnight. So much came off with no scrubbing! I then soaked again for about another hour with two more tablets and almost all of the grime was gone. I did scrub just a tiny bit to get all the stains out with a brush I had... They are almost like new! I did this on two pots and we were all amazed by the results. I'm ordering more so that we can clean regularly since it’s so easy!" —Heather

    Get it from Amazon for $8 (available in two quantities).

    21. A FURemover squeegee broom to handle the pet hair (and um, maybe even your hair?) that's built up in your carpets and almost every other surface of your home (and car). While a shedding pet is the focus, it'll even work with cleaning up water, dirt, and dust.

    5-star reviews: 37,170+

    Promising review: "I really didn’t expect this to work. We’ve had short-haired cats for years and I had a rubber upholstery brush that never seemed to do anything. Well, we recently got a dog — a black Great Pyrenees mix. There is fur everywhere. Our downstairs is all hard flooring with area rugs and I hate lugging my Shark vacuum every couple of days but just daily sweeping with a regular broom wasn’t cutting it. I decided to take a chance on this broom and I am so happy I did. It takes some elbow grease but it gets the fur off the area rug in my living room... Not only is it great for getting the fur off rugs, but it’s also even better on the hard floors. My regular broom catches some of the hair (which I then have to clean off by hand) but much of it just swirls away in the breeze the sweeping creates. This broom actually collects even the tiny stray hairs and deposits them in the dust pile without me having to get my hands dirty (literally)." —Sarah R.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98.

    22. A wine-stain remover so you don't have to freak out whenever a little vino spills onto your clothes, linens, or furniture. This should help you reverse the damage, ASAP.

    5-star reviews: 3,410+

    Promising review: "I initially bought this to clean red wine out of fabrics that cannot be cleaned but did so with trepidation because I've tried other products that have only made things worse. Anyway, I didn't have to wait long to test out Wine Away's effectiveness as the first red wine spill happened a couple of weeks later on my wife's brand new, super expensive runner which we weren't supposed to be drinking anywhere near and, of course, is brilliant white. At this point, I had already given up all hope of covering up my tracks but figured I might as well try Wine Away as my last-ditch 'maybe I won't have to sleep on the couch' effort. To my amazement, upon spraying Wine Away on the stain, it immediately cleared up and left no residue or dullness behind. Honestly, I even called my wife in, told her what happened, and had her search for where the stain was and she couldn't find it. Simply amazing stuff. I am now a believer in Wine Away and have used it on not only wine spills but also pet stains on various fabrics and it's always stepped up to the challenge." —Derek

    Get it from Amazon for $13.29.

    23. A Conair fabric defuzzer to help you finally get those fuzzy, warm feelings back about your favorite sweatshirt or your old faithful couch.

    5-star reviews: 6,720+

    Promising review: "I bought this on a whim in last attempts to save my favorite duvet cover. The pills had gotten to the point where it was seriously uncomfortable to sleep with them getting all up in my leg space. I thought I was going to have to get a new duvet cover entirely but then along came this lil' baby. Not only is my duvet cover basically brand new, but I also have found a new hobby. I’m de-pilling everything — sweatshirts, leggings, blankets, socks, and anything that looks like it needs some love. It does the job quickly and leaves everything looking fresh. I’m obsessed. I can’t stop. I should send this back. I’ve started asking if my neighbors need anything de-pilled. I’m going to buy one of these for everyone in my life. Everyone needs to own this. Take it away from me." —Sydney Jensen

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in four colors and in battery-operated or rechargeable options).

    24. Magic Eraser Sponges so marks and stains come completely off the surfaces in your home without you having to put in too much effort. Just wet it a little and watch it work!

    5-star reviews: 13,100+

    Promising review: "Hey! Did I tell you Mr. Clean and his Magic sponges changed my life?! I live in an apartment that very quickly gets gross and grubby due to oldness and I use these suckers on *everything*. I don't recommend using them on matte walls but I do anyway, to erase scuffs. I use them on my kitchen floor which is disgusting thanks to the '60s floor tiles that are peeling off the floor, and my Siamese cat who eats his wet food while standing on his plate and then walks around leaving little paw prints of grossness. I use the sponges to clean everything in my bathroom and kitchen. There's nothing more satisfying than wiping your stove with a damp Mr. Clean, turning it over, and seeing the tint of filth. Even if you think you have an immaculate kitchen, (and your friends say, 'OMG, your house! It's so clean! I wish my house was so immaculate!' when they visit.) Mr. Clean will prove to you otherwise." —Customer Review

    Get it from Amazon for $12.48 (available in a 10-count).

    25. A diamond cleaning stick to remove the gunk from your jewelry and make it twinkle and shine like the day you got it.

    split photo with the left image showing a reviewer's hand with a diamond ring that looks kind of cloudy and the right image showing the same reviewer's ring after a cleaning and now it's looks nearly clear

    5-star reviews: 18,010+

    Promising review: "Trust me. This PAINS me to say this. My wallet is hurting. This stick outperforms my $90 jewelry steamer. Forget the jewelry store cleaning. Do it at home and your rings will look BETTER. I have a morganite band that I seldom wore because the stones are impossible to clean and they're ugly when they're cloudy....well... The morganite now looks good as new." —Jenna

    Get it from Amazon for $7.69.

    26. Oven cleaner that'll transform your stove into an actual clean space for you to cook your dinner in instead of the dirty dungeon it currently is 😬.

    5-star reviews: 12,680+

    Promising review: "Whoaa, Mama this stuff works! I have an oven I’ve embarrassingly neglected for five years. I did as the other reviewers stated and sprayed it on and let it sit overnight, then cleaned up the next day. It literally wiped up with a damp sponge. No scrubbing necessary! I will mention, however, that the directions state to cover the heating elements first with aluminum foil. I didn’t read the directions prior to using it (whoops!) and sprayed the product directly onto my heating element which made it a little more difficult to clean as they don’t come out. I just had to make sure to clean that area extra well and really get in the nooks and crannies. I also got a spray bottle full of water and REALLY sprayed all over it to rinse the area very well after wiping up the grime. Then, I simply dried it all up with a clean rag. I’m so glad I found this product and I solemnly swear I will not wait another five years to clean my oven ever again!" —Rebecca

    Get it from Amazon for $7.02.

    27. Nonstick liners (since we're talking ovens, right?) to prevent any buildup of crumbs and other food drippings so cleanup will be way easier the next go-round.


    5-star reviews: 8,490+

    Promising review: "I expected to be happy, but I'm thrilled! Each mat is pliable and fits the entire width of my standard oven. When the mat is against the back wall, it extends up to but not over the front lip of the floor. On first use, pizza cheese and sauce dripped onto the front edge of the mat and onto that uncovered lip. The baked-on cheese and sauce slid right off the mat! Effortlessly! After I cleaned up the lip, I layered a second mat to cover the lip. These mats are so great that I almost want food to drip on them so I can show off how wonderful they are." —Artset Outset

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    28. A microfiber mop and hands-free wringing bucket set so you can get your floors sparkling clean without burning out all the energy in your body and needing to pass out in bed afterward. The mop is designed to help you get into corners easily and wring it by just pressing your foot to a pedal on the bucket.


    5-star reviews: 49,330+

    You can also remove the mop head and it's machine-washable but you might want to snag some back-ups (sold separately) so you can toss the dirty one into the washing machine, leave it for your laundry day, and still have your mop readily available.

    Promising review: "I'm the queen of never mopping because I hate it more than anything else. I will literally only mop maybe once or twice a YEAR. A friend who is a house cleaner recommended I try the O-Cedar Easy Wring mop and bucket. I tried it for the first time today. It's so easy to fill up, carry around with the handle, and wringing it out using the foot pedal is, dare I say, FUN!!! TIP: Hold the handle extremely lightly in your hand so the handle will spin when you wring. I like that I was able to wring more for a drier mop for my laminate and hardwood floors) and wring less for my linoleum and tile that needed a deeper clean. It's easy to dump the water when done. I will definitely be using this mop more frequently than once a year!" —B. Nichols

    Get it from Amazon for $29.98 and the mop refill for $17.58+ (available as a single and in other quantities).

    29. A septic-safe jetted tub system cleaner to clean the gunk out of backed-up tub jets so you can get back to having relaxing (and non-dirty 😬) bubble baths.,

    5-star reviews: 3,010+

    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

    30. Drill brushes to remove grit and grime dang near anywhere in your home including stoves, grills, bathroom tiles, tubs, sinks, showers, and way more.

    5-star reviews: 28,800+

    Heads up, peeps: The drill is NOT included. It's a set of three brushes that will attach to your existing drill (or the new one you're about to snag) so you can clean more efficiently.

    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 I was hand-scrubbing it for years. The FIRST time I used this to clean my shower, it took five minutes AND it scrubbed my shower cleaner 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

    31. Cleansing gel that'll conform like putty to all the smaller, interestingly-shaped places you need to remove dust from like your keyboard, car vents, AC vents, and more.


    5-star reviews: 15,010+

    The gel is non-sticky and lemon-scented. It's also biodegradable so when you're ready to toss it, you won't be hurting Mother Earth at all. 🌎

    Promising review: "I was skeptical at first. I was afraid my keyboard would be all gummed up with yellow slime! The opposite happened. The gel cleaned it as good as new. It got all those dog hairs between the keys and there's no smell lingering on the keyboard or my hands. There's no sign I even used it except a clean keyboard. It's also kind of fun to play with. Squeeze it between your fingers! LOL. My next task for it will be those dust return air vents on our heating system and my dusty window blinds. This stuff works!" —Billy
