    35 Heavy-Duty Cleaning Products To Help You Tackle The Toughest Messes In Your Home

    Those stubborn stains are shaking in their boots.

    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 — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A pumice cleaning stone because it's time for those caked-on hard water deposits to go so you can take your proper place atop a glistening porcelain throne.

    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

    2. A grout paint pen that'll cover up years of residue from dirty feet, uncleaned spills, and mysterious stains that have discolored your grout. It works like a regular marker, so even the people who failed art can use it.

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing! After over 10 years of the grout not being cleaned, and a botched repair job, the bathroom floor in this house looked horrendous. Two pens covered the entire bathroom floor, with plenty left over in the second pen, even with applying two to three layers (which you will definitely need as the paint is a bit thin and also absorbs into the grout). Super easy to apply, works exactly like a regular paint marker. Be sure to press the pen tip on a separate (thick) cloth to activate it before actually using on the grout so you don't end up with a huge mess on the tile when the paint floods out at first. If you see the first side of the tip is getting frayed, just pull it out and turn it around to the other side." —regalle

    3. Or a power scrubber for anyone who's determined to clean their long as it requires minimal effort. It's basically an electric toothbrush but for cleaning tile grout and hard-to-reach nooks and crannies.

    Promising review: "I just spent two hours scrubbing the ceramic tile floor in my second bathroom. This is a room where my elderly, incontinent cat lives so... use your imagination. I leave pee pads and towels down, but she still does her thing. I clean her room consistently, and every few months I do a heavy duty scrubbing by soaking the floor and grout in Nature's Miracle and start scrubbing. It takes hours because I can't get the corners well, and the grout is such a pain to clean. Well, this product is amazing. I used this for the grout lines, and I used the corner attachment for... corners. It was amazing. It got gunk and grime off the grout that has been there for years (I haven't resealed this floor since it will have to be taken out when the cat dies). I even used these to scrub the cabinet doors, around the toilet, etc. and they were really, really great. you have to put the right amount of pressure on the brush, but once you do, it's *wonderful.*" —None

    4. A hardwood floor cleaner to lift dirt and grime that's turning your precious floors black.

    It's safe for unwaxed, non-oiled, polyurethane-finished wood flooring. Just spray it on wood and wipe with a mop or Swiffer.

    Promising review: "I moved into an apartment with absolutely disgusting wood floors. Whenever I would walk on it my feet would turn black. I used this product as well as a rag and a cleaning brush. It worked very well and now I’m not scared or grossed-out walking on my floors! The pictures are 'before' and 'afters' from cleaning." —fwk

    Get it from Amazon for $7.97.

    5. A robot vacuum so you can say goodbye to the mountain of fur that's piling up now that your pup is shedding his winter coat.,

    Promising review: "After running eufy for nearly two months now, I can confidently say I absolutely LOVE it! It is amazing on my hardwood floors. It picks up sooo much fine dust brought in by my two German Shepherds! They shed year-round! And it’s super effective with pet hair! Wow! I use Eufy once a day for a little more than hour, emptying and cleaning the brushes out about three to four times during use. It seriously has been life-changing, keeping my floors cleaner than sweeping! Great purchase and I would highly recommend!!" —Jacqueline M

    Get it from Amazon for $209.99 (also available in white).

    6. A portable Bissell SpotBot if spending hours on your hands and knees scrubbing cat vomit from the carpet sounds incredibly unappealing.

    This portable carpet cleaner will spray, brush, and suction up any stain, no adult supervision needed. It also comes with a hose and tool attachment if you'd prefer a more hands-on cleaning session.

    Promising review: "I have an older pug and he has always been good, but I knew one day this machine would be brought out. I had it nine months before my first use. He got sick one week, and I literally used the machine about 12 times in a week. All I can say is Bissell knocked it out of the park with this. It’s amazing. It cleans so well. It is the simplest machine I have ever used that does so much. It is well designed. Quick set up. And clean up. It does all the work for you. And it does a fantastic job. I love it. Worth every penny. I’ll never be without one. If you are on the fence, buy it. I can’t believe how good this machine works. And the design is flawless. The tanks are so easy to fill. And clean for storage. And if it can clean 100% of what we had this week. It can clean anything!!! Like it never even happened. Thank you Bissell!!!" —David

    7. An odor-eliminating spray because you love your kitty but you also love when your carpets don't smell like pee. Each spray releases bacteria that feeds on the ammonia left behind after your pet's accidents, eliminating the urine completely and deterring your pet from peeing in the same spot again.

    The spray bottle

    Promising review: "I have six elderly cats, and a few of them oftentimes leave smelly pee puddles to register their disdain at whatever cats get 'peed off' about. It's not a litter box problem and, although I've caught one or two of them doing it, I can't blame them all. This product works great on fresh messes as well as dried ones. After blotting up fresh pee pads, I saturate the area with Rocco & Rossi's odor remover and let dry. For dried stinky stuff, I just saturate the area and let it dry. It has a pleasant odor and completely eliminates the ammonia odor. Believe me, I've tried all kinds of products, and this one works the best. I buy gallons now just to have on hand. It's better than smelling that awful pee!" —mona mia

    8. 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: "When I pulled the orange plastic spiked strip from the package, I was immediately skeptical and felt like all those five-star reviews were from people who exist in an alternate universe. I was tempted to initiate a return on Amazon 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." —Chocolate and Chips

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $11.88.

    9. A bottle of hard water booster powder for making mugs that look like the one on the left (aka cloudy) look more like the mug on the right (aka nice and shiny).

    reviewer photo of stained mug next to a clean mug after using powder

    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 & Save for $5.67/month).

    10. A portable handheld vacuum to take care of messes that you've avoided cleaning for too long. It has a special rubber nozzle that picks up fur with ease, especially on hard-to-vacuum areas like stairs. There's no bag, so simply pop off the canister when you're done vacuuming and dump the contents in the trash.

    Promising review: "Holy crap!! Are you skeptical when it comes to buying stuff online? ME TOO! That's why I figured all of these rave reviews were a crock of crap. I've seriously bought every kind of vacuum out there, including the Roomba, which is about as intelligent as a cotton swab. But I have four cats and a golden retriever, so I was getting desperate! I believe the saying is… a picture is worth a thousand words. Check mine out (above)! Of note — the 'before' picture was taken of my dog's bed AFTER it went through the washer and dryer. Look at all of that left-behind hair!!! And the 'after' picture was taken after only THREE MINUTES spent vacuuming her bed. I. Am. SOLD! BTW, I've NEVER taken the time to review a product before, just FYI." —Luka Chan

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99.

    11. A pack of stain-removing pads so you can clean up any stains leftover from one of the many "presents" your puppy leaves you...and that you find days later. Just press the pad onto a stain, let it sit, and remove in a few hours to a clean carpet. (Psst! They work just as well on wine, coffee, soda, and even blood.)

    Promising review: "Our poor older pup started having some incontinence issues and had several accidents in the house. I was really frustrated until I found these. They work amazingly well. They're small, so if the area was larger I had to use two or three, but they pulled up stains and saved the house from being smelly. I even used one on an older stain (that I'm pretty sure wasn't pet related) and it came up after leaving it on for about 24 hours. I make sure to keep a supply of these in the house at all times now." —MC

    Get a pack of 20 from Amazon for $24.99.

    12. A box of OxiClean if you're really tired of trying to explain to your house guests that the mysterious stain on the mattress is coffee — seriously, it's coffee!! Mix this stain fighter with water and watch the brown spot disappear.

    Promising review: "I'll let my pictures (above) speak to how amazing this works. I had a stained mattress that I'd been covering with a mattress pad for years. As I was preparing for a move, I decided to give OxiClean a try and see if it could remove the stains that had been there for well over SEVEN YEARS. I honestly don't even know what caused the stains, but OxiClean removed them. I took before, during, and after pictures (after pictures show the outline of water because I took them immediately after rinsing. I honestly can't believe the results. I wish I'd done this sooner!" —Little Greek

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98.

    13. 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." —KarynB

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    14. A yoga mat cleaner that'll finally get rid of that funky foot and sweat smell that lingers in your mat no matter how many times you've wiped it clean. Nobody wants to get into child's pose when your mat smells like stinky cheese.

    Get it from Juniperseed Mercantile on Etsy for $10.

    15. A pet hair remover for anyone who's tired of getting fur all over their clothes. Roll it over your couch, bed, favorite blanket, you name it, and watch it lift the fur away. See, we can own nice things!!

    Reviewer photo of a black pillow covered in white dog hair and you can clearly see which side they brushed with the fur remover because all the dog hair is gone in that section

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my cat-loving life? Sticky rollers work fine for clothes, but this is the only product that has ever COMPLETELY removed all the cat hair from my bed. I have a long-haired 20-pound tabby and if you run your hands up his back a few times and fling the hair everywhere, it looks like it's snowing — he never stops shedding no matter what I do. After using the ChomChom, I can put on a black dress and roll around on my bed and not get a single hair on me. It's absolutely amazing. Everyone is getting one for Christmas, even if they don't have a pet. I don't care, it's THAT good." —Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    16. And an oven cleaner to de-gunk the last five years' worth of meals from the sides and bottom. This is great for anyone whose oven doesn't have a self-clean option, as well as people who don't use the self-clean button because it turns their home into a sauna.

    Reviewer's dirty oven with huge chunks of burned food bits stuck to it made totally clean

    Promising review: "First, let me say I never clean my oven because hate it so much! It had years of baked-on drippings on the bottom and the usual brown crud that forms on the sides and shelves. After reading reviews, I decided to give it a try. It works wonders! My oven looks great and it was so easy. Follow the directions and all the bad stuff just wipes away! I've even used it on other stubborn stains on baking pans. Highly recommended!!" —E. Nyquist

    Get it from Amazon for $7.02.

    17. A yummy-smelling soap-infused scrubber so avid hobbyists can wipe their hands clean after all their messy activities. Paint, tree sap, car grease, fish oil, and more are no match for these scrubbers.

    The sponges
    WeatheredWhatnots / Etsy

    WeatheredWhatnots is a small biz based in Lincoln, Nebraska.

    Get it from WeatherdWhatnots on Etsy for $7 (available in two scents).

    18. A cooktop cleaner if you'd rather your guests not know that the last time you cleaned the stove was...the last time they visited your house. This kit comes with a bottle of cleaner, a sponge, and a scraper — everything you need.

    Promising review: "This stuff is incredible. My rental apartment has a white glass cooktop and it gets nasty even if you use very clean pots and pans on it. Before I found this stuff, I thought that for sure I would lose a big chunk of my security deposit, but I have yet to encounter a stain that this stuff cannot remove. Sometimes it takes a couple of tries alternating between the paste and the razor scraper, but even the most stubborn burned-on, carbonized food bits always come off." —Max

    Get it from Amazon for $11.29.

    19. A spinning makeup brush cleaner because there is nothing I truly hate more than cleaning and drying my makeup brushes. Thankfully, this magical machine swirls your brushes in soapy water until leftover makeup, dead skin cells, dirt, and debris are gone, and then it spins the brush until it's dry.


    It comes with the brush spinner, charging station, eight rubber collars that securely connect the makeup brush to the spinner, a glass bowl, and a splash guard ring.

    Promising review: "I use my makeup brushes daily, and they get filthy. I've used other cleaners and this product wins hands down. The wand and the cleaner itself takes all the hard work and does it for you, not to mention the the brushes dry in seconds. This is the cleanest my brushes have ever been. Highly recommend." —Valerie

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    20. A broom for pet hair that'll loosen the fur trapped in your carpet that your vacuum just can't get. It works just as well on wood and linoleum, with the rubber head working as a magnet to attract stray hairs.,

    There's also a built-in squeegee for wiping up liquids or for cleaning glass. Plus, the handle extends from 36 to 60 inches so it can reach practically any mess.

    Promising review: "I bought this broom based on the tons of great reviews and I am not disappointed. I love this broom! It is lightweight but sturdy. I have used it on tile floors and carpet and it does a great job of getting the pet hair, lint, and dirt. I like this so much better than our traditional push broom. It is very easy to clean after use just using my hand, unlike our old broom. It also has a telescoping handle so that you can adjust it to whatever height you need. There is also a squeegee for doing the house windows and the car windows. I highly recommend it." —Joyce V

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98.

    Check out my colleague's FURemover Evriholder broom review for more deets and some very satisfying photos of the globs of hair she removed from her carpet.

    21. A pack of plastic-free sponges for caked-on, baked-on, won't-budge messes. The durable denim exterior tackles tough messes, while the flexible cellulose core allows you to get into all those nooks and crannies. And when it's reached the end of its life, just toss it in the compost pile.

    Promising review: "I loooove these unsponges! The work so well. They are soft enough and strong enough. I toss mine in the wash and they have held up well! I ABSOLUTELY recommend these! The seller was great too!" —Karen Bayard

    Get three from RowenStillwater on Etsy for $24.93.

    22. A gallon bottle of CLR PRO, a calcium, lime, and rust remover, to get rid of the hard water stains that have so far withstood all of your cleaning attempts. Well today they've finally met their match!

    Promising review: "Throw away your other bathroom descalers and shower cleaners and use this. I get mineral spots on the glass wall and mineral buildup on the shower head causing the shower to spray water to the sides, and a quick soak in this product clears the shower head of minerals, cleans the glass completely, and leaves your shower looking brand new." —R. English

    Get it from Amazon for $22.98.

    23. A Scrubbing Bubbles toilet cleaning stamp so you can polish your toilet with each flush. The stamp releases the cleaning gel, which foams and cleans your toilet.

    Scrubbing Bubbles /, 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

    Get six stamps from Amazon for $3.97 (or Subscribe & Save for $3.77/month).

    24. A cleaning paste if your stainless-steel faucets and shower knobs have lost their shine.

    Promising review: "I’ve been trying to switch all my cleaning products over to biodegradable or biocompatible, but I still expect them to work. I bought this because my shower stall doors are supposed to be transparent but were actually a mess of fog, hard water deposits, and other foul substances. Nothing I used cleaned the doors at all. I tried this and scrubbed my doors twice with it. Not only did it actually clean my doors but it lacks gross fumes and smells quite pleasant." —A. Via

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    25. A jetted tub cleaner because it cleans the inside of your tub — y'know, the part you can't reach. This cleanser is made to flush out soap scum, body oils, and those black flakes that gunk up your tub's jets.

    Promising review: "They don't call this Oh Yuk! for no reason. I previously used Jacuzzi's two-part system and this worked sooo much better. I was totally embarrassed not to mention grossed out at how much funk came out. It was NASTY! It definitely cleans your tub. You will probably have to clean the sides of your tub after it's finished because of how much stuff might come out. I swear I clean my tub on a regular basis, but I was amazed at how much better this worked. Highly recommend!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    26. A rust remover spray that'll handle the embarrassing stains in your bathroom like a pro. I swear they're rust marks!

    Promising review: "When we bought our home, there was no water softener and years of iron buildup. We tried so many things on our shower. Nothing worked. We were convinced we’d be stuck until we renovated the bathroom. The Iron Out worked wonders. I still can’t believe it. We had to let it sit for about an hour. It then dissolved and wiped right off. Definitely use in a ventilated area if possible." —M. Gilardi

    Get it from Amazon for $4.98.

    27. A plant-based stainless-steel cleaner and polish for keeping your fridge free of smudges and fingerprints 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 from Amazon for $16.95.

    28. A super charged stain remover to make you stop saying "Oh well, there goes another shirt" every time you spill tomato sauce. This soap bar is made for lifting grass stains, grape juice, bubblegum, blood, ink, mildew, and more, plus it has a high glycerin content so you can even use it as a regular hand soap without it drying out your paws.

    Get it from SallyeAnder for $8.

    29. A drill brush kit that comes with three different heads so you can clean your bathroom with practically no effort. Just attach the scrubbing brush head, flip the switch on your drill, and watch the dirt go straight down the drain.

    Promising review: "I let my tub get extra dirty on purpose because I knew this brush set was coming. In five minutes my tub was sparkling clean. This item is no joke. The flat brushes are awesome for big surfaces and the cone brush hits the hard to reach corners. I liked them so much I bought a set for my mom." —Jason B.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.70+ (available in soft, medium, stiff, and ultra stiff bristles).

    30. A bottle of Bar Keepers Friend Soft Cleanser if you want that stubborn stain in your tub to wish it'd never been born. It's a kitchen and bathroom superstar, excelling at making your tile, porcelain, stainless steel, and glass shine.

    We recommend picking up some reusable cleaning gloves before you begin your disinfecting. If you want to save yourself from getting down on your hands and knees to scrub, one reviewer suggested using a broom so you can both stand *and* clean a larger surface area.

    Promising review: "We’re on a well so we have very hard water. Recently the water got super rusty and left horrible stains in the shower that would not come out. This was the only thing that worked and it worked GREAT! I just used a damp sponge to scrub it in and all of the rust stains came out. For the lighter spots it took maybe one swipe to clean which was incredible. For the super dark spots it took a little elbow grease but it got it out. I am absolutely amazed and will always use this from now on. I highly recommend it for tough-to-clean hard water stains." —Amanda A.

    31. A mattress vacuum because the last time you cleaned your mattress was...? The answer is never. This loosens dust and dirt lodged in your mattress and sucks it up, catching itty bitty particles.,

    Promising review: "You guys, I’m actually embarrassed to show this picture because I pride myself on having a clean home. But this filth just came out of our mattress. My husband and I have always had seasonal allergies but I started to wonder if there was another cause because we both kept waking up stuffy even during the off season. After learning about dust mite allergies, I ordered this vacuum as fast as my fingers could order. I just plugged in this little wonder and got to work, assuming every bit of the bed needed it. I wasn’t wrong. Pulled off everything and did the actual mattress. Yuck. Vacuumed the mattress cover and got more. Our new pillows needed it too. This vacuum is lightweight, easy to maneuver, easy to clean. But its greatest benefit is the peace of mind it provides. We’re all going to sleep better tonight because of it!" —swttulip

    Get it from Amazon for $109.99.

    32. A microwave steam cleaner that'll melt away the baked-on crud that's clung to the sides of your microwave since, well, we're not exactly sure how long it's been there but suffice it to say it's been awhile.

    Promising review: "Something I didn't believe until I tried it. So easy to follow directions, written on Angry Mama. Was disappointed when I opened the microwave to see the filth still on it. Was wishing it would magically taken care of itself. But all it took was a quick swipe with a paper towel and GONE. Loosened everything, which is half the process. My microwave was sooooo white once cleaned!! Would buy as gifts." —max's mum

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in four colors).

    33. A red wine stain remover spray for salvaging your favorite white shirt after your clumsy self spills on it. This spray lifts spots and splatters (even ones that are old!).

    Promising review: "Totally impressed! The unassuming generic packaging and label left me a bit skeptical but this stuff is almost as exciting as the wine I spilled! This cabernet stain sat on my ivory faux fur blanket for over a month before I tried this product. Completely gone in one try! Get this. Seriously. You won’t be disappointed." —PersianTess

    Get it from Amazon for $13.29.

    34. An all-purpose cleaner to make practically every inch of your home sparkle. You know that one stain that just won't lift no matter what cleaning product you use? I dare you to try this.

    A stained shower floor and you can clearly see which portion has been cleaned

    Puracy's plant-based formula is non-toxic and safe to use around children and pets.

    Promising review: "I have not been able to remove this dirt/grime stain from the bottom of this shower since we moved in four years ago. Sprayed this on, scrubbed for about three minutes and could see it lifting the entire time I did. BEST cleaner I have ever used! I have tried everything: straight bleach, harsh chemical cleaners, you name it. I don’t know what is in this miracle product, but they have a lifetime customer in me now. So impressed by how well it cleans, and that it is nontoxic and organic (I am a mama so this is especially important to me). Hard to believe a natural product could work this well. Bravo to the chemists who made this miracle cleanser I can feel good about using in my home! I never write reviews but felt it was my civic duty to share my experience with this product!" —Cory

    Get it from Amazon for $11.98.

    35. A pack of bottle-cleaning tablets so you can finally start using your favorite coffee mug again. You know, the one you moved to the back of the cupboard because the bottom was black and nothing you tried would remove it?

    Promising review: "Be sure to use hot water; even though it won't foam as much it seems to do a lot better job. The first time I used these on a Contigo travel mug I used room-temp water, and it just came out OK. For the next travel mug, I used boiling water and the results were terrific. It looks new again. Then I used two cubes (and boiling water) in a large old pressure cooker that had become brown inside from years of making vegetable soups, and I'm amazed how clean it came out. That pressure cooker stain persisted throughout dozens of scrubbing sessions and dishwasher runs, so I figured the Bottle Bright wouldn't help either but it did." —MisterPlow
