    29 Bathroom Products That Get The Job Done

    Including a bath bomb for your shower, a pumice stone to get rid of toilet bowl stains, and an organizer that'll actually fit in your tiny bathroom cabinet.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. 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 β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A pumice cleaning stone for powering through tough rust, lime, and calcium streaks that have retired many a toilet scrubbing brush. Give your tired arms a break and let this little guy rub away discoloration with ease. This nontoxic cleaner is tough on dirt but gentle on porcelain so you can sit atop the glistening throne you deserve.

    Promising review: "I have very hard water that leaves hard-water buildup and nasty stains. It’s embarrassing to have guests over because the toilets are so gross! I have tried so many products and cleaning solutions β€” from natural essential oils to harsh chemicals so strong I was lightheaded for the rest of the day. Well, I tried out this pumice stone after reading about it in a BuzzFeed article, and honestly the hype is real! It does take some elbow grease, but the after picture is from only 20 minutes of scrubbing, light enough that I didn’t break a sweat! The stone does get used up, but I think this one should last me a couple years at least. So if you have embarrassing toilets, try this!" β€”Stephanie Ray

    2. A Scrubbing Bubbles toilet cleaning stamp to polish your toilet with each flush. The stamp releases the cleaning gel, which foams and cleans your toilet.

    Scrubbing Bubbles /, Scrubbing Bubbles

    Promising review: "After using blue and bleach tabs in my toilet tank for years (and having to replace the moving parts in the tank every year), it was time for a change! These don't impact the parts in your tank while still providing a clean and fresh toilet!" β€”Craig Lindstrom

    Get two dispensers and 30 gel discs from Amazon for $21.99.

    3. An cotton swab holder so you can conceal your toothpicks, dental flossers, and cotton swaps with the push of a button. Guess it's time to finally throw out the bulky boxes they came in!, Amazon

    Promising review: "It’s definitely cute and a great product. It works well. Some cotton buds are too long for it, but that’s not usually a problem. I love the way it looks on my counter rather than a bulky box." β€”Dee Morales

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    4. A mold and mildew remover because you can set it, forget it, and come back in a few hours to see grout that looks like new. I'm talking basically every speck of black mold is gone! *Cues up "Do You Believe in Magic"*

    Progression photo showing dark mold and mildew on shower tile grout disappearing overnight

    Promising review: "You guys. I’m embarrassed to even show you this. The grout around our tub was DISGUSTING. It was never caulked right and it got gross very quickly. I would scrub. The cleaning lady would scrub. It would get worse. Well, I came across this in a BuzzFeed list, and this stuff made me curious. I don’t know why it doesn’t have 10,000 good reviews. Seriously. All I did was squeeze it on and walk away. I let it sit overnight. Check this out. Buy it. Like today." β€”KarynB

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    5. A rolling laundry sorter if the hamper in your bathroom is overflowing and the thought of spending your Saturday morning sorting the towels and the delicates is already giving you a headache.

    reviewer photo showing laundry organizer that they stenciled with the words dark, color, white, and towel

    Some genius reviewers had the idea of labeling each bag to make it clear what's what. To do that, you'll need some letter stencils and a permanent marker.

    Promising review: "It will make sorting and doing laundry much easier. The cart has locking wheels to keep it in place. Also, each section is separate and can be lifted out on its own. Will work out much better than some previous versions I've had where compartments where stitched together. I'm excited to use this. Was pretty easy and straitforward to put together." β€”Cassandra Samuels

    Get it from Amazon for $34.87+ (available in three colors).

    6. An adhesive floating shelf that'll hold your shampoo bottles without complaint *and* without requiring you to drill any holes in your walls. These can also stick inside your shower!,

    Promising review: "My bathroom is all tiled so it's kinda risky to drill. I also live in NY where you don't have much space. These shelves were the perfect solution to my issues. They're not hard to install at all, just have to keep in mind that they're made of plastic and they look like it. Also the adhesive plastic squares are visible after installed, so have that in mind. It fits my needs perfectly. They hold the weight I need them to hold: toilet paper, some jars with cotton and cotton swabs, and some decor." β€”Jorge Novelo

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    7. A Tushy bidet attachment for pampering your patootie. Not only will it help you use less TP, but it also just leaves you feeling cleaner after you go.


    This is the bidet I use and 100% recommend to my friends, family, and to you, dear reader. Installation was pretty simple; from start to poop it took about 15 minutes. The sensation say the least but you definitely get used to it. In fact, I recently moved apartments and it's taken me awhile to hook up the bidet (I'm a procrastinator, OK?!). Oh how I've missed my bidet during this time (and I'm sure my butt feels the same way). But seriously, I cannot stress how life-changing getting a bidet is.

    Get it from Amazon for $79+ (available in five colors)

    8. An under-cabinet drawer to hold your bottles of cleaners *and* to store smaller supplies like sponges, brushes, and cleaning cloths.

    A reviewer pulls out their drawer to reveal three sponges, four magic erasers, two handheld scrub brushes, one dish brush, four folded dish cloths, and a folded drying pad all neatly arranged

    Promising review: "Expecting a flimsy, shaky-type unit, I was astonished to find it SOLID and STURDY. It assembled in a flash. The basket slides easily in the track and the wires don't bend or get crooked with heavier items. Because the basket pulls out smoothly, everything stays upright. I've tried several types of organizers in the bathroom cabinet, the revolving plastic unit, the tiered steps, the U-shaped shelves, and nothing has worked as well as this one. I may buy more for other 'storage needed' areas, e.g. linen closet, bedroom closet, and my office. Oh, it's also easy to take the unit out from under the sink and recessed floor to be able to clean under there." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $26.97 (available in two colors).

    9. A space-saving outlet shelf so you have a perch for your electric toothbrush, Bluetooth speaker, or decor even if your bathroom lacks a counter.

    Promising review: "I just installed this in my tiny bathroom to hold my electric toothbrush. Its PERFECT! Its not made with a cheap, flimsy plastic. It has a nice weight and looks great! I love that the shelf has a lip so things don't slide off. I also love that it comes with two different switch plates so you can adapt it to your needs. It holds my toothbrush AND a tube of toothpaste standing up AND still has room for any other small item you have yet takes up no more space than a standard outlet. I coiled up the toothbrush cord and you can hardly see it. I love it so much; I'm thinking of where else I can use it :)" β€”auntevie

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    10. A Squatty Potty, because a bout of constipation shouldn't leave you down in the ~dumps~. Squatting changes the angle of your anal canal, opening it up so it's easier for things to exit.,

    Promising review: "What can I say? The process of excretion can only be compared to a real life exorcism where it feels, pleasantly if I may add, that the devil himself is trying to burst out of your gut. Needless to say, the stool changed my life. I found myself creating excuses to run to my magical place and discharge whatever little portion of food was left inside me; I was hooked. Soon people started wondering why I've become so distant; the stool had taken over my life. It would have taken over your life too if you would have experienced the kind of pleasure that I was now enjoying; it was my high." β€”Dino

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    11. A two-tier no-drill corner shower caddy if you're tired of playing Tetris on your shower's ledges with your toiletries.

    Reviewer photo of the shelf holding toiletries and a loofah

    Promising review: "I have a lot β€” and I mean a lot β€” of body washes. The thing that annoys me is that I have nowhere to set my shampoo, conditioner, and body wash bottles. I didn't have any ledge in my shower so I decided to purchase a shower shelf. I must say, this shelf is everything to me. I like how easy it is to set up and how sturdy it is. I was very nervous setting anything on a shelf that is attached on suction cups but these suction cups are very powerful, even with the humidity of the shower. I have taken a shower every day since I installed this shelf on my wall and still holds up. I was able to put about five body washes, my shampoo, and conditioner bottles as well as my facial cleaners. It definitely holds up well. Because it's made with a durable aluminum, you don't have to worry about rust, which was something I worry when being around water. β€”Adam Lopez

    Get it from Amazon for $22.95.

    12. A hidden toilet brush that'll sit neatly behind your toilet's water tank, camouflaging itself until you need it. No space for a toilet brush holder in your itty bitty bathroom? No problem!

    Promising review: "The brush works like any other toilet brush, but we love that it is hidden. You have to look very hard to see it but it is easily accessible if you need it. It was also easy to assemble β€” just click two parts together and hang off the toilet bowl. I would recommend buying this product." β€”Ariel

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    13. A luffa soap for exfoliating while you clean. Reviewers say it'll leave your skin soft and smooth, not red and raw.

    The yellow bar soap with a loofah embedded in it

    The Luffa Soap Co. is a small business based in Houston that specializes in handmade soaps. They even grow their own 100% organic luffa sponges, which they embed in the soap for some extra exfoliation.

    Promising review: "I moisturize and exfoliate every day, but nothing has been as effective as this. The soap leave my skin feeling so silky while the luffa scubs off all the old dead skin cells and leaves a noticeable improvement. I’ve even used it on my face wrinkles. I have no idea why anyone would leave a bad review for this product." β€”Jeanette K. FitzGerald

    Get it from The Luffa Soap Co. on Amazon Handmade for $7.99.

    14. A bundle of eucalyptus leaves to transform your bathroom into a 5-star spa. Sometimes you just need to lock yourself in the bathroom, away from the stress and idiots in real life, and take a nice hot shower.

    Botanica Fleur / Etsy

    Botanica Fleur is a small biz based in Nashville.

    Promising review: "So lovely! It arrived very quickly and the aroma in my bathroom during and after a shower is so amazing." β€”Bridgett

    Get them from Botanica Fleur on Etsy for $8+ (available in bunch sizes ranging from extra small to large).

    15. A power scrubber so you don't have to schedule a six-hour cleaning session this weekend. It's basically an electric toothbrush, but for cleaning tile grout and hard-to-reach nooks and crannies. This is gonna save you so much time and effort.

    Reviewer photo of their tile grout, which is is white and clean where the scrubber has been used and dark brown where it still needs to be brushed

    Promising review: "This is so much easier than using the toothbrush when trying to really scrub grout or around the sink, etc. This little thing is pretty powerful; I was really surprised at how fast it rotates! This is one of the most helpful cleaning tools I have ever owned. A real time- and energy-saver!" β€”Sissy39

    Get it from Amazon for $19.62.

    16. A acrylic organizer so each and every lipstick, mascara tube, and bottle of foundation is in its place rather than spread all over your bathroom counter.

    AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    My fellow BuzzFeed editor AnaMaria Glavan swears by this organizer. In her own words:

    "I'm not exaggerating when I say this thing is the best investment ever. I can fit so πŸ‘ damn πŸ‘ much πŸ‘ inside of this four-drawered thing. Here are all the products that I currently have in there: 32 lipsticks, six blushes and bronzers, two large highlighter sticks, one foundation bottle, three concealers, two contouring sticks, two rollerball perfumes, two primers, and the bottom drawer contains so many lip pencils, eyeliners, and eyeshadow sticks that I actually didn't even bother counting (but I'm going to guess AT LEAST 30 of them, I swear). If you have A TON OF MAKEUP (which I do), then you may still have to store some extra stuff in your bags β€” but either way, this container holds SO much."

    17. A plant-based stainless-steel cleaner and polish if your bathroom faucet has been covered in smudges and fingerprints for so long that you've forgotten how beautiful and shiny it once was. Reviewers say it helps keep your surfaces smudge free for longer, meaning less cleaning for you!

    The spray bottle

    Promising review: "I have tried a number of stainless cleaners, and this is by far the best. Easy to apply with the microfiber cloth. And much easier to remove than many other cleaners. Even removed the hard water spots on my bathroom fixtures!" β€”Isabella2012

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95.

    18. A two-tier expandable shelf that'll bring order to your bathroom cabinet. There's even an opening in the center so it can fit around the sink pipes. Genius!

    Reviewer pic of before and after putting the shelf in the cabinet under the sink. On the left, disorganized supplies everywhere and on the right, the same supplies now organized nicely with even more on the three differently-sized shelves

    Promising review: "I found this shelf to be extremely sturdy and handy! I loved how it works around my pipes and how it looks like a perfectly clean and organized cabinet and not cluttered. I tried everything from baskets and bins to wire shelves but they did not work. This under sink shelf lets you see everything. The metal is plenty sturdy for bath and beauty items. I love how it extends very wide! Love this shelf!!!" β€”Nicole Myers

    Get it from Amazon for $24.97 (available in three colors).

    19. A shower curtain liner with mesh pockets to save your toes from an avalanche of heavy shampoo and conditioner bottles that fall from your itty bitty ledge every time you shower.

    Promising review: "This is the perfect storage solution for our tiny NYC bathroom and so much better than a shower head hook caddy. It's great that the pockets are mesh so as not to hold water/get gross." β€”Emily Tozer

    Get it from Amazon for $18.67.

    My colleague has one and loves it. Check out her Maytex shower curtain organizer review (#2) for more deets!

    20. And don't forget a before-you-go toilet spray to hide any evidence. Even if you're one of those weirdly confident people who can poop in a house full of people without issue, having this in your bathroom for others can calm nervous pooers.

    The spray

    Promising review: "New Year's Day 2019 I wake up at my friend's house after a night of partying to the smell of fresh coffee and bacon frying in the kitchen. So I get up and say good morning to everyone, get me some coffee, and think to myself, 'Hey! The entire house smells like bacon. It's probably an opportune time for me to 'drop the kids off at the pool' because no one will notice anything I'm making in the bathroom over what Michelle is making in her kitchen.' Anyway, I look on top of the bowl and there's this stuff. For added protection against embarrassment, I pump a couple of sprays into the bowl and do my stuff. Yup now I totally smell bacon and oranges, but not a whiff of anything else that might cause my friends to ask me if I need to see a doctor or something. So now I keep a bottle with me just in case I'm in one of those situations when I have, you know, a brown dog scratching at the back door, but don't want anyone to know that I'm letting him out." β€”D. Grieco Jr.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.25 (available in other scents here).

    21. An over-the-tank TP holder so you never have to text your roommate in a panic and ask them to leave a spare roll outside the door. It's also better than toilet paper stands, which always seem to be an inch too far away whenever you reach for the roll.

    Promising review: "The over-the-tank toilet paper holder is so much better than one that is on the floor. I love it." β€”Eileen Rios

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in six colors).

    22. A toilet seat lifter because you have no desire to actually touch what's probably a very dirty toilet seat. It may also encourage your partner or roommate to actually lower the seat when they're done can hope!

    White toilet seat lifter attached to toilet seat

    Promising review: "One of my pet peeves is having to touch the toilet seat. I sanitize my home daily if not hourly and the handle makes cleaning the toilet so much more tolerable. The handle doesn’t get splatter on it. Super easy to install and the adhesive sticks perfectly. It comes with extra adhesions if needed. I wipe down everything with wipes or bleach and paper towel and I’m done." β€”Allie Fast

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    23. A TubShroom if your relaxing showers have turned into you standing in a puddle of water for 15 minutes because the drain is clogged...again. This little guy snags the hair you shed before it can collect in the pipes.

    Promising review: "I have long hair and recently had a baby. This means the poor tub drain is getting clogged every time we turn around, and we're spending ridiculous amounts of time with that spiky stick thing you shove down there and then pull out over and over. I figured if this even worked to catch half of my hair then it would be worth its salt. Holy moly. When they say it catches every hair they aren't kidding. We clean it off about twice A WEEK! And when they say it's easy to clean, they are right again. A swipe with toilet paper and the hair blob comes right off to be flushed down the toilet. I've already told so many people about this product because I love it so much. Fantastic!!!" β€”sasamo

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

    24. A drain clog remover that'll conquer the hair monster in your shower drain, simultaneously impressing and disgusting you.

    Reviewer holding the snake, which has grabbed a massive chunk of hair from the drain

    Promising review: "I was tempted to initiate a return but decided that I might as well gamble on a piece of $9 plastic before gambling $200 on a plumber. I slipped the plastic strip down my shower drain and literally FIVE SECONDS LATER I was pulling up gobs and gobs and gobs of hair. HOLY COW!!!!!!!! OHMYGOSH. I can't believe I still have any hair left on my head. SO MUCH REPULSIVE GUNK!!!! I saved my prize hairball on the shower floor to show my husband because I knew he would be as skeptical as I was. We both agree it looks like a small raccoon or a large squirrel lying helplessly on my shower floor. It's a grisly, messy, smelly and oh-so-rewarding job." β€”Chocolate and Chips

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $11.88.

    25. A reusable exfoliating Japanese towel for anyone who wants their entire body to feel as soft and smooth as a baby's bottom. Give yourself a good rub in the shower to slough away dead skin, help get rid of those annoying tiny bumps on the backs of the arms, reduce the frequency of ingrown hairs after shaving, and even help clear backne.

    You can use this daily or weekly depending on how you feel about its abrasiveness.

    Promising review: "This is a holy grail to my sensitive skin and germaphobic personality! It does take time to get used to due to its rough feel, but once you start to use it daily, it's hard to use anything else! Nothing else gives me such a clean feeling on my skin during my showers. I use to have very bad skin conditions all over my body: eczema, body acne, dry patches, and dark spots. This helped clear basically everything, and now I'm more confident in showing my skin in public than I have ever been. It soaks up very nicely, and you can feel all of the dirt that's on your skin from day-to-day activities getting scrubbed off. The long length is great for reaching in hard to reach spots, such as your back. Since it's extremely rough, I would advise against using it on your face." β€”Jay G.

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $11.79+ (available in five colors).

    26. A skull bath bomb to reflect how you feel on the inside after a long day of Zoom calls. De-stress with a hot bath and the ashes of your enemies.

    Get it from Baum Designs on Amazon Handmade for $12.95.

    27. A pack of shower steamers so you can enjoy your shower to its fullest extent. If you've ever said, "Gee I wish there were bath bombs for showers" β€” tada! As the tablet dissolves, it releases therapeutic essential oils like lavender and chamomile to help you de-stress after a long day.

Jason, the owner, was working as a pharmacist before pivoting to creating a line of small batch hand-crafted essential oil and herbal based products that are cruelty-free, gluten-free, and made without artificial fragrance and preservatives.

    Promising review: "I really enjoy these. I'm pregnant and find it hard to relax and fall asleep now that I'm in my third trimester and these are great at night when I shower in the dark with just a nightlight. The scent is strong and will give a great waft every time it comes into contact with the hot water. I'm usually in the shower for about half an hour and I put this in the very back and it usually lasts throughout the entire time. If I put it near the front it dissolves in about 5–7 minutes and can be a little overpowering. It also came with a sample of the their stress relief scent, which is just lavender and lemon and honestly smells like fruit loops." β€”trieulove

    28. A bath overflow drain cover because you're missing out on a few extra inches of hot water!

    Promising review: "I have a high-stress job, and I've started taking baths as a way to unwind. However, it never seemed like I could keep enough water in the tub to really enjoy it. This little thing makes a HUGE difference!! I get at least an extra three inches of water and it is great." β€”Hyacinthe Snyder

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in three colors).
