    1. A bleach-free, no-scrub weekly shower spray so soap scum and shower grime buildup goes bye bye without you ever having to wipe. Rinse it clean the next day, and you'll be amazed to see those hard water stains on your shower door are *poof* gone.

    Before: a dirty shower floor; after: the clean shower floor
    Amazon

    Promising review: "Does a FANTASTIC job if used regularly. I love this product. I hate cleaning tubs. This product has made our tubs look new. I don't use it every shower...maybe every third. Just spray down everything after the shower, and forget about it. You DO need to rinse tub before next shower due to product making it slick. The fumes of other cleaners always messed with my asthma. I have noticed that for some reason with this one, I sneeze twice, because I have to spray shower doors while I'm still in the shower...but it never affects my lungs. I would recommend this to EVERYONE!" —Angela GIllaird

    Get it from Amazon for $16.89.

    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 / youtube.com, Scrubbing Bubbles

    Promising review: "I was sooo skeptical and was confused about how they’d work but the gel solidifies and with every flush, suds wash through with the water and it really makes a fresh difference. Also the scent is light but really nice and fresh! I recommend these 100%! They’re super interesting but they do the job." —Janet

    3. 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.

    amazon.com

    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 — 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!" —Stephanie Ray

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    4. An eco-friendly hard water stain-remover that'll defeat stubborn soap scum and residue that's bested all your other attempts to scrub it away. It's biodegradable so the scent won't singe your nose hairs and make you gag, plus it's safe enough to use on just about anything — including shower glass, tile, granite, stainless steel, marble, brass, and porcelain.

    Promising review: "I love that this product is eco friendly! I wasn't scared to use the product even though I'm pregnant. The scent kind of reminds me of toothpaste and wasn't strong. I did a quick application using an old scotch blue sponge on my bathroom shower to apply it. I left it on for about 10-15 minutes and then had my husband wash it off. He said he didn't do much scrubbing because everything just kind of came off on its own. For the corners for the shower, he used an old toothbrush to reach those difficult spots. He said those crusty areas pretty much just came off on it's own with some rinsing. Amazing! I'm so glad I bought this stuff instead of some other brand I saw on Amazon which was caustic! I'd much rather wait 10 minutes for an eco friendly non toxic product to work. If you're on the fence about buying this, do it already! I wish I had discovered this sooner instead of dealing with a gross and embarrassing looking shower for so long! There were a few spots I missed or and some areas need a second application but I expected that. It took years for all that hard water to build up, I wasn't expecting it to be gone overnight. I expect the shower to look good as new after we get do a second application of this." —S.Ngov

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    5. 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"*

    amazon.com

    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 lists, 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." —KarynB

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    6. 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.

    amazon.com

    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!" —Sissy39

    Get it from Amazon for $17.38.

    7. A plant-based stainless-steel cleaner and polish if your fridge 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!

    Promising review: "This is hands-down the only product that has ever perfectly cleaned my stainless steel appliances. It deserves 10 stars because nothing else comes close to removing streaks and toddler finger prints as easily and completely as this. I have tried for years to get my appliances to look like new. Everyone who has stainless should own this." —Danielle

    Get a bottle on Amazon for $15.95.

    8. An robot vacuum to keep the mess under control without you ever lifting a finger. OK, I lied. You will have to press some buttons on the remote control but you'll no longer have to spend a good portion of your weekend manually vacuuming up mountains of dirt, dust, and pet fur.

    Amazon

    Promising review: I am a NEAT FREAK! I love to clean. I literally clean my house daily. It can’t be clean enough. I have a two-story, three-bedroom three-bathroom house with two dogs. This vacuum cleans all of it! This gadget is legit like a little human vacuuming your floors, but super throughly. It goes over all my rugs and hardwood floors, and it goes in the bathrooms and closets and under all the furniture. Once in awhile it gets caught in the wires underneath my TV but most of the time it is able to get itself out of it. It’s quiet. My dogs barely even notice it. This is worth every penny! It’s easy to set up, and easy to clean after each use. It does all the hard work for you. Since I’ve had mine, I’ve literally gotten five friends to buy one and they all love it too." —Shannon

    Get it from Amazon for $199.99+ (originally $229.99; also available in white).

    9. A 15-piece set of airtight food containers for helping you achieve a pantry that looks like Clea and Joanna from The Home Edit stopped by. Sure, pasta is great and all but aren't you tired of buying boxes of spaghetti only to realize you had an unopened box shoved in the back of your cupboard? This'll help you figure out what you do and don't have at a glance.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I ordered this set to continue on the road to an organized pantry. There are enough containers and enough variety of sizes to make me happy. I have stored pastas and noodles, dried beans, rice, sugar, instant mashed potatoes, crackers, etc. When I open a box of something, I put whatever is unused into one of the containers and feel very secure that the contents will be fresh and protected from any possible insect problem." —R M

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in two colors).

    10. A box of cleaning K-Cups that'll get rid of residue in your machine and prevent flavors from transferring. Or have fun descaling it multiple times. Your choice!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Just pop it in and run about one reservoir of water through the system. It is blue but unclogs and does a great job of cleaning. When I used the white vinegar method I'd have to rinse it quite a few times to get rid of the vinegar taste in the water. I definitely recommend this to others. I believe it works in all systems that use the K-Cup." —Brandi

    Get a box of five pods from Amazon for $12.80.

    11. A bottle of hard water booster powder because your mugs look like the one on the left (aka cloudy) and you want them to look like the mug on the right (aka nice and shiny).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I could not get my flatware to come out clean from the dishwasher and I wondered if it was the hard water. I was using up to three soap blocks in each load with only partial improvement. I used this the first time and voilà! Perfectly clean flatware for the first time. I LOVE this!" —Susan A

    Get it from Amazon for $5.97 (or Subscribe and Save for $5.67/month).

    12. A gel dust cleaner so you can say goodbye to that annoying crumb that's stuck between your R and T keys. Smushing this lemon-scented slime on your keyboard is weirdly soothing and the end result is dust-free keys.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I was skeptical at first. I was afraid my keyboard would be all gummed up with yellow slime! What happened was the opposite. It cleaned it as good as new. Got all those dog hairs between the keys! No smell lingering on keyboard or my hands. No sign I even used it except a clean keyboard. Kind of fun to play with too; you can squeeze it between your fingers!" —ZZZZZZ

    Get it from Amazon for $5.94.

    13. A set of grocery organizers if you've lost many, many ingredients over the years in the black hole that is your fridge. Create a designated space for your foods and you'll never spend 15 minutes rummaging through every drawer trying to find the jar of sour cream you're 1,000% sure you bought for taco night.

    Promising review: "These are so helpful if your fridge is cluttered. I bought these for my mom who is an extremely cluttered person. I love her to death, but she is not an organized person. Her fridge used to look wild. There would be food piled on top of food, and small jars and containers EVERYWHERE. I bought her these to help her organize everything. Now she can see what she has and everything has a place. Thank you for making something like this to help those that are so cluttered." —MioRioZio

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99.

    14. A heavy duty pan organizer to accommodate all of your pans — including your heavy cast-iron skillets and your Dutch ovens.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have owned multilevel pan storage rack in the past, however this is by far the most solid and well made one I have ever seen. Most are just wire hardly thicker than a coat hanger but this one is over a quarter-inch of solid steel with an enameled coating to protect your pans. The spacing between each level is wider than average to accommodate almost any frying pan I've seen. And unlike any similar product I've seen it can be fastened down to the cabinet bottom so the whole thing doesn't move or tip over when you remove a pan. And the fasteners are included." —PhotoGraphics

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in six colors).

    15. A flexible, silicone kitchen sink organizer that'll neatly hold your sponge, dish soap, hand soap, and more. (I can't be the only one who gets annoyed when my roommate leaves a wet sponge just sitting on the counter!) And it wipes clean since it's made of silicone so you don't have to worry about yucky mold and mildew.

    Promising review: "My wife and I both like to keep the kitchen counter clean and clutter-free. Unfortunately, you need a convenient spot for those extra 'crucial' items that you frequently use like a scrubber, drain plug, hand soap, etc. One night she handed me her phone and told me she bought this item for our counter. I thought it would be a flimsy piece of crap. But it’s not flimsy. More like pliable and sturdy. It works great, blends in with the counter, and cleans up nice. My wife was right...again." —AbiNormal

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

    16. A dryer lint brush so you can clean out your lint trap — I mean really clean it — since your fingers won't do the trick. It's also great for dislodging lint that's in the dryer vent pipe, which is a fire hazard.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Works perfectly for scrubbing the stuck lint out of the insides of your dryer. Everyone who owns a dryer should have these, they're basic safety equipment. Clean that lint, and reduce fire hazard and make the machine more efficient. They're long enough, strong enough, and just flexible enough without being too flexible." —Winged Wolf

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $7.95.

    17. A pack of hanging vacuum bags if you're already dreading having to store all your summer clothes in a few months. With these bags, you can vacuum all the air out so they take up a fraction of your closet space. And you can do this while they're on the hanger instead of trying to fold and smush them in a regular vacuum bag.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Bought these storage bags two weeks ago to pack my winter clothes for summer, and they did the job perfectly. They are large and sturdy. I like its five-hook design. I can store five women's jackets or four big men's jackets in ONE bag. The long bags also fit my dresses. The biggest reason I bought these bags is that I do not need to fold my seasonal clothes; just hang, zip, vacuum, done! Super convenient. Extremely happy with this space bags. I will definitely order more!" —Jia Yan

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $25.49 (available in three colors).

    18. A pack of shelf dividers for organizing your clothes into neat and distinct piles. These dividers provide stability for soft clothes that tend to fall over into one big pile of mess.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These work great! They work so well I installed them and forgot them. My bureau is pretty deep and my clothes would all fall on top of each other and become a big mess. Now I'm pretty organized with my T-shirts." —Pathfndr

    Get it from Amazon for $10.34.

    19. A durable folding board that'll fold your shirts and sweaters so neatly that you'll get joy out of opening and closing your drawers and seeing everything look so organized. Plus, the uniform fold will allow you to fit as many tops as possible in your drawers.

    Promising review: "My first reaction was 'Why did I buy this?' Then I gave it a try with a couple shirts I had just washed, and next thing you know I simply had to do my entire drawer! Everything folds so pretty, neat and easy. I still couldn't believe it, so I ended up organizing our bedsheets and towels. I am amazed at how much of a game-changer this is. A must-try! I'm in love with how beautiful it left my clothes." —Jesus Antonio Vedia

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in four colors).

    20. A set of stainless-steel S-shaped hangers because you can basically only fit like three pairs of pants in your drawer before there's no room left. These'll maximize hanging space so you can store all your pants neatly in the closet and use the valuable drawer space for other clothes.

    Promising review: "A strong and durable hanger. These look like they will last for a while. I was looking for a way to save closet space and to make storing pants better, and this is it! Also useful for color organizing." —Taylor Richardson

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (also available in black).

    21. A kitchen baker's rack so you can organize the clutter on your countertop and really just make your kitchen more usable. This has plenty of storage space for all the small appliances you love but don't use that often (looking at you, pasta maker!), as well as hooks for hanging pots and pans. You can even use the wood top as extra prep space!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Fits perfectly in corner of my kitchen. Holds all my small and not-so-small appliances that were cluttering my counter space. I like the top shelf and the hooks. I’m using the hooks for potholders and the top shelf for a few seasonal knickknacks that I’ll switch out. I purchased additional hooks that I hang on the side and use for my keys. I also bought some shelf liner, which makes it easy to remove and replace the appliances without them getting snagged on the open shelves. It went together fairly easy. It’s heavy and sturdy. Lots of space on this basic kitchen organizer and I consider it an excellent purchase!" —JoLi

    Get it from Amazon for $102.49

    22. A five-piece desk organizer set if you're done scrambling to find a pen anytime your boss says something important in a meeting. This set comes with everything you need in a trendy rose gold color.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    It comes with a pencil cup holder, a letter sorter, a letter tray, a hanging file organizer, and a sticky note holder.

    Promising review: "I got tired of stacking papers and folders on top of a horizontal tray on my desk. The basket can hold file folders with tabs, which makes important papers easy to organize and find. No more piles upon piles. The tray is for my to-do items. I find myself leaving work on time and not staying late to clean up my desk. I have embellished some of the items with fake rhinestones and have received many compliments on the ensemble." —Kathy

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99 (available in four colors).

    23. A set of adjustable shelves to fit your storage needs. This way you can prevent clutter from taking over every inch of space on your desk.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "The design is sleek and minimalist. I'm prone to clutter, so this shelf gives me a place to put things intentionally so that I don't get overwhelmed in my workspace. I also like that it only took about 10 minutes to fully assemble. If you've ever made your own IKEA furniture before, no need to fear; you'll do fine." —Mary Anne Layus

    Get them from Amazon for $27.99 (available in four colors).

    24. A set of sticky notes for anyone who needs to write something down in order to retain the information or remember their to-dos, as well as Type A folks who need to color code their work.

    The set
    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a great little set! The various sized sticky notes come in a neatly bound hardcover book that fits perfectly in the pocket of my daily planner. The pens are equally good, especially for the price. If you’re like me and perhaps a little particular when it comes to organization and color coding, don’t hesitate to purchase these. The set of 12 vibrantly colored pens fit nicely inside an empty extra sleeve pocket in my A5 planner. Because they’re so compact, I did have a little trouble getting the caps off at first (weak hands), but with use, it’s much easier." —Breezy McD

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    25. A pack of five desk drawer organizers that'll create a little home for all your stationery, makeup, or bathroom products. You can find the arrangement that works best for your drawers!
