    40 Products With Before-And-After Photos I Think Deserve A Pulitzer Prize

    It would be an honor just to be nominated.

    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. InstaNatural Vitamin C Serum to help reduce sun spots, discoloration, redness, hyper-pigmentation, and dark spots without drying you out. Wipe those smudges off your front-facing camera and get ready to snap some pics.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've tried multiple vitamin C serums, but this one is by far my favorite. The smell is lovely and it goes on very light. My skin has been looking brighter and clearer since using this. I also love that the bottle is protected from light. I purchased another serum product where you could tell the product went bad as the smell changed. I researched later and learned that proper storage for vitamin C serum must be in bottles that block out the light, as that retains all the qualities of the minerals and vitamins in the product. I am purchasing this again for the second time now. Highly recommend!" —Serena

    2. An ink remover so you can have the power to remove things that had the gall to call themselves "permanent." Everyone wave goodbye to Evan 👋.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Amodex took ink out of my expensive scrubs. A pen leaked in my pocket and made a thick glob of ink stain on the scrub jacket and a little on the pants. After using the Amodex and washing in cold water, there is no evidence of a stain and the fabric looks exactly how it looked before the stain. There was no damage or discoloration of the fabric. Thank you, Amodex. This product just saved me the $75 that it would have cost to replace the scrubs." —Michelle hammer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.97.

    3. A pack of 24K gold eye treatment masks to depuff in luxury. Perfect for anyone who's tired of the people asking "are you tired" and wants to show them who's boss while feeling fancy as hell.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "Love these. I love using them in the morning instead of at night. I put it on while I’m sipping my coffee, and then once I’m ready to do my makeup, I take them off. They seriously work — love them." —Jordan

    4. Avarelle pimple patches for literally *sticking* it to your breakouts and sucking out all that gunk basically overnight. I wish they came in Lisa Frank designs, but ugh clear is more reasonable, I guess.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I’ve tried so many brands of pimple spots, and these are hands-down the best on the market. I’m a performer at Walt Disney World, and a clear complexion is required. Last night, I put these on a few acne problems (a small cyst, a whitehead, and a pimple I shouldn’t have picked and has been a bump for about 3 weeks now.) I just woke up and am writing this review in disbelief. THEY'RE FLAT! Gone! All of them! I could cry I’m so happy. The packaging is also ideal because it allows you to conveniently and easily peel the stickers off without stretching them out or folding them back on themselves. Do yourself and your complexion, huge favor and have these on hand for a stubborn zit when you really need help. Make sure you apply them to completely clean and dry skin." —Caitlyn

    Get a 40-pack from Amazon for $8.08.

    5. A set of cascading hanger hooks to create an enormous amount of space in your closet like *that*. You'll be saving space but probably be spendin' a little on clothes now that you have the room. I support you.

    amazon.com

    These organizers can hold 12 garments horizontally and hold six pieces vertically.

    Promising review: "These have transformed my closet. I can actually see what I have and my clothes are not as wrinkled from being jammed together. An unexpected bonus is that, since I can see at a glance what I have in there, I have been able to inventory and discard things that I do not wear often, plus have re-discovered goodies that I had forgotten about." —C.F.C.

    Get a pack of eight from Amazon for $16.99 (originally $23.99).

    6. A tongue scraper so residue on your tongue doesn't stand between you and fresh breath. Post those toungue-stickin'-out selfies allll you want, the goop is gone!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "It's hard to review this product without grossing people out but I think the truth needs to get out. There is some nasty stuff on your tongue that a toothbrush cannot remove, especially in the back. This thing allows you to remove it easily without gagging yourself by trying to shove a toothbrush down your throat. I was definitely surprised the first time I used it how much material I removed, and yes that stuff smells bad. After that first time I couldn't get anywhere near as much off of my tongue which tells me that the material had been there a while. My breath is noticeably better now. This is a very simple tool and it cleans up well since it's just a piece of stainless steel and rubber handles." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $6.88.

    7. An electric pressure washer whose process photos are honestly beautiful enough to hang in a museum. Ah yes, the duality of dirty and clean, and how the pressure washer of time inevitably brings us to see both in perfect contrast.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    You can use this pressure washer on outdoor cushions, wood decks, house siding, and so many other places. You can even fill it with detergent to wash your car!

    Promising review: "I love this washer. It competes with my 2200 PSI gas-powered pressure washer, which in fact I sold to keep this. But doesn't have the noisy gas engine or the heavy weight. Easy to move around lightweight and has great power. Very quiet. I love all the attachments and the different stream types. The soap dispenser works well. I'm cleaning everything, my deck, my house, the garage doors, the concrete slab. It takes off all the dirt and mold from the old concrete stairs and sidewalk." —Tim S.

    Get it from Amazon for $135.77.

    8. A nail polish organizer, because nail art Instagram is A Thing, but maybe nail polish storage Instagram should be, too?

    amazon.com

    This holds 48 bottles and is double-sided, so you can always see all of your colors.

    Promising review: "This is better than advertised. All my bottles fit perfectly in the standard size boxes. My Julep colors fit two in a compartment! The first row has adjustable dividers, you can use them to keep odd-shaped bottles or do what I do: use one side for my nail stamper, dotting tools, and the drying drops and the other for foam wedges and nail pens. It looks way neater easily tucked under my vanity instead of the baskets and baskets of polishes I had to hunt through!" —Clouds

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in two colors).

    9. Tend Skin Solution for sending ingrown hairs and razor bumps straight back to the underworld where they came from.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have sensitive skin and this has helped tremendously! I’m a woman who unfortunately started shaving my chin 20 years ago to get rid of peach fuzz. I’ve had stubble ever since and have to shave everyday. I get rashes on my chin due to shaving. My skin is now less sensitive and my rash is almost gone!" —Angela

    Get it from Amazon for $20.89 (available in two sizes).

    10. A tennis shoe cleaner to get your beloved sneaks back in kickin' shape. However, I am begging you to wear them for one day with one shoe clean and one shoe dirty, just to make people be like 🧐.

    amazon.com

    The cleaner is super concentrated, so a little goes a long way. It also comes with a free cleaning brush!

    Promising review: "I have had my Nike Roshe runs for about a year now, and I don't go easy on them. I play sports and run in the dirt with them all the time, but I also like to wear them for fashion purposes. Pink Miracle helped restore my daily shoes to look like I just bought them — now I can wear them for even longer. Very pleased with Pink Miracle, I will buy it again when I run out of my bottle." —Romario

    Get it from Amazon for $17.97.

    11. A pet hair vacuum so you can get back to enjoying your time with your furry friends instead of secretly resenting them for all that shedding. Sorry for the cold shoulder, Buster, the hair was just overwhelming.

    amazon.com

    The hand vac has a 16-foot power cord and comes with two nozzles for cleaning upholstery, carpeting, and the inside of your car.

    Promising review: "Holy crap! Are you skeptical when it comes to buying stuff online? ME TOO! But I have four cats and a golden retriever, so I was getting desperate! A picture is worth a thousand words — check mine out! 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! The 'after' picture was taken after only THREE MINUTES spent vacuuming her bed. I. Am. SOLD!" —Luka Chan

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99 (available in two colors).

    12. A wheel cleaner to keep your caps shiny as heck. Enjoy posting a photo of your "new car" that's just your old car with sparking clean wheels.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "It will take one look from your friends to say 'Did you buy some new wheels?' This stuff is absolutely amazing. For the full effect, dismount your wheel, spray the back. Go do something for 10 minutes. Wash with water, no scrubbing needed. Turn the rim face up, do it again. Do the rest of your rims, and don't forget the tire protectant when you reinstall them. This stuff will handle salt, road tar, off-road dirt and mud — you get it dirty, it comes clean. Where was this stuff when I was racing off-road?" —johnfcon

    Get it from Amazon for $17.63.

    13. A cap cage, because apparently you can wash your sweet ~lids~ like they're your food container lids. I love learning.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Works like a charm! It's given new life to my favorite baseball caps, some of which, I'm sad to report, have suffered tragically in washing machine incidences. Never would I have considered the dishwasher, but Ballcap Buddy said yes, so I tried it. Not only did my caps get clean, but they retained their shape. It's a perfect way to wash a baseball cap. Different styles, different colors and materials all came out the same: Looking good." —Mcharmony

    Get it from Amazon for $7.90.

    14. A pack of silver polish wipes that'll make you be like wiggity-WHAT?! Was I transported back in time to 1890 when this silver finery was purchased?! Nope, just my ridiculously great polishing skills.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "It is very uncommon for me to write a review but this product is amazing. My family's silverware had not been polished in the 15 years since I married my husband. The only time I ever polished anything before it was messy and smelly and took forever. Therefore I didn't have any interest in polishing something that we weren't using. I decided to try these wipes because the price was reasonable. They are easy to use and do a wonderful job! The silverware looks silver! I used four wipes to polish a service of eight, and it took me about 20 minutes. I highly recommend this product!" —Kehrli

    Get a 20-pack from Amazon for $8.28.

    15. A bottle of dandruff shampoo so you don't have to go about your day stressing about any flakes that may be visible in your hair. Even though everyone gets dandruff and it's no big deal, it can get stressful when it feels out of your control!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "MIRACLE PRODUCT! If you have a flaky scalp from dandruff, BUY THIS. I was about to go to the dermatologist if this stuff didn’t work. Thank goodness I saved myself hundreds of dollars by giving this product a shot. I used it four of five times (over a month) and it cleared my scalp almost completely. One more use and my scalp will be 120% healed! This stuff blew my mind. Totally worth it." —Chris

    Get it from Amazon for $14.10.

    16. A wood polish and conditioner with beeswax and orange oil to hide dings and scratches, and add some healthy natural luster to your dull antiques. How many expensive vintage pieces are truly resold in "perfect condition" and how many have just had a smart owner who gave them a once-over with this stuff?

    amazon.com

    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. Several other areas were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magical eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let is 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 $8.48.

    17. A shoe shining kit for when you need to trade in your weekend dusty 'ol cowboy street style to look presentable at work Monday morning.

    amazon.com

    The kit comes with two tins of black polish, a shine brush, a dauber, and a cloth.

    Promising review: "KIWI is my favorite brand for shoe care items. From shining actual military boots to polishing my dress shoes, I haven't found a better quality shoe shine. This pack is extremely useful for those who are new to polishing shoes themselves since it comes with everything a beginner really needs to learn. Remember that these are new horsehair bushes, so you may lose a few hairs the first time you use the dauber." —Lord McFatty

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95.

    18. A zombie face mask kit so you can stake your claim as the undead human with the most glowing skin in the game.

    amazon.com

    The mask is made with albumin and claims to help tighten pores, hydrate, promote elasticity, remove dead skin, and balance pH.

    Promising review: "I own a salon and have worked in them for 19 years, and never in my life have I used or seen something so amazing. I have read all about the Hanacure facial but it is expensive and always on back order. This is the same thing AND IT WORKS. It doesn't smell bad at all. There is a veryyyy slight smell to it but hardly noticeable and not something I'd complain about. This has natural ingredients and boy does it work. It sucked every thing out of my pores and shrunk them, and all of the lines on my face are GONE. YES GONE. Usually I have to have Botox for my forehead. Well, not anymore, that's for sure!" —Aja Rieger Cooke

    Get a pack of eight treatments from Amazon for $23.75.

    19. A multi-purpose cleanser and polishing powder that will give all of your cookware, countertops, sinks, faucets, and so much more an America's Next Top Model-level makeover.

    amazon.com

    The cleanser is non-abrasive, bleach-free, and effective on most surfaces in the kitchen, bathroom, and outdoors.

    Promising review: "This stuff works so well, you'll feel like you're in a staged infomercial where your surfaces are left gleaming and impossibly new. I removed the worst stains from my white ceramic sink, which I had tried everything on — bleach, oxygen cleansers, lemon and baking soda — nothing worked. But sprinkle some Bar Keeper's Friend on there, and with 10 minutes of elbow grease, BOOM it looks almost brand new. I'm obsessed, could not recommend it more." —KathleenH

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $9.99.

    20. A pack of Bottle Bright tablets — finally a way to clean murky and moldy residue in forgotten tumblers that's not...ummm...throwing them away and telling your roommates that you "lost all of them."

    amazon.com

    Simply drop the Bottle Bright tab in the vessel you want to clean with some warm water, let it sit for 15–30 minutes, and watch in wonder as all that staining and gunk easily washes away!

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. Bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER HydroFlask to replace it. Now eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING." —Amazon Customer

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $8.

    21. A beard shaping tool because getting both sides of your beard even while trimming is literally the plot of Mission Impossible. Or at least I'm guessing, I've never seen it.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've had a beard off and on for the last 12 years and I always struggled with edging the neck and sides; it's just nearly impossible to achieve symmetry by yourself. While not a replacement for seeing your local barber, this inexpensive device helps tremendously, takes the guesswork out of creating nice clean lines and parity on both sides of your face. I which I had availed myself of this much sooner. Well worth the nominal investment!" —JJ The Red

    Get it from Amazon for $5.95.

    22. A three-piece produce storage container set to keep all of your berries and greens as fresh as when they left the ground. Strawberry fridge forever, baby.

    Natalie Brown / Via BuzzFeed

    The set includes one 6.3 cup container, and two 17.3 cup containers with lids, which are BPA-free, and dishwasher-safe. They feature vents to regulate the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide, keeping your produce fresh as can be!

    Promising review: "I bought my fruit on Friday and ordered this immediately because I’m so sick of throwing my fruit away if I don’t eat it in a few days. It’s been a WEEK now and my strawberries, pineapple, and blueberries, (all in this one big container), are STILL FRESH! I’m going to start buying more fresh fruit now that I know it won’t be wasted and thrown away in a few days. Highly recommend this product if you’re like me and can’t eat a whole pineapple, strawberries, and other fruit fast!" —Sarah

    Get the three-piece set from Amazon for $26.99.

    23. A bottle of pet earwax cleaner so your pet can fully hear the always-anticipated Good Words, "Wanna go for a walk?"

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this for my cat because he had ear mites when I got him and when they cleared up, his ears were left with a bunch of nasty wax and I couldn't get all of it out in fear of pushing it farther down. This stuff brought EVERYTHING up! I LOVE it and HIGHLY recommend for anyone with an animal with dirty ears! My cat has stopped scratching at his ears finally because they are nice and clean!" —Tricia S.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    24. A red wine stain remover so merlot can no longer make you cry after a detrimental spill. It can still make you cry over your ex, but I don't think there's a spray to fix that, sorry.

    Emily Shwake / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "When you have anything white in your house and you have a love for red wine THIS PRODUCT IS A MUST! We had a dinner party of about 15 people in our house so I bought five bottles just in case. Someone spilled red wine on our brand new white couch. I was so mad, but I used this stuff and it was GONE. It didn't just take most of the red wine out — the red wine was GONE! No trace of it at all! I will buy more!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $6.67.

    25. A fabric shaver that will give all of your old upholstery, sweaters, and other pilled fabric new LIFE! Welcome back from the dead, zombie couch.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Okay, I don’t normally rave about things like this. I bought this on a whim in a last attempt 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. Along came this lil' baby. Not only is my duvet cover basically brand new, but I have found a new hobby. I’m depilling everything. Sweatshirts, leggings, blankets, socks, anything that looks like it needs some love. It does the job quickly and leaves everything looking fresh. Hi, I’m obsessed. I can’t stop. I should send this back. I’ve started asking if my neighbors need anything depilled. 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

    26. A foot file so you can straight up cheese grate your way to silky soft feet. With heels this soft, you'll basically always be walking on a cloud.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "OMG, these should be standard issue to every human. I’ve bought them all — the cheap foot files and the expensive ones. None of them remotely compare to this one. I thought I was doomed to have course heels forever, but no more! With just one use, my heels are fabulous! The callouses this thing removed were absolutely disgusting, but I couldn’t be happier. You won’t be disappointed!" —JMart

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    27. A bottle of wrinkle releaser spray that will fool everyone into thinking you wake up early to iron every day when the reality is you roll out of bed after hitting snooze four times and spray down whatever you pick up off the floor.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "As a college student with a full course load, I'm in and out of my room all the time. This helps me keep my clothes wrinkle-free without having to waste time ironing them. It's also great as it leaves a VERY nice smell on my clothes." —Seth

    28. A John Frieda Hot Air Brush, because gorgeous, infomercial-esque results don't come around every day, so when they do, you gotta take some stunning pics of the results!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Let's face it. It's near impossible to get a salon blowout look at home. Your arms get tired, and trying to manage a brush and blowdryer is a feat in and of itself. This brush is not just good, it's great! I love this brush! I actually like the way my hair turns out with this styler better than what I get at the salon — seriously. I love my hairdresser and she does a great job, but I have actually gotten more compliments on my hair when I do it myself with this tool. I'll probably get two more to give to my daughters as well, that's how much I love it. This is great and you can't beat the price!" —debbie

    Get it from Amazon for $33.32+ (available in two sizes).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Don't get me wrong — my wedding ring was gorgeous before. It did sparkle and still made me smile every day. However, after using this Diamond Dazzle Stik, *oh my goodness*! After one use my ring is absolutely breathtaking! I knew my ring got dirty now and then, simply from sweating and being outside in the elements. However, I never realized just how much dinge and schmutz marred my diamond until I cleaned it. It literally took my breath away with its fiery, dazzling brilliance!" —liltreeclimber

    Get it from Amazon for $5.49.

    31. A set of three scrubbing drill brush attachments that if I'm being completely ~transparent~ will make you feel like a complete badass while also delivering some major results.

    amazon.com

    The set comes with a two-inch flat brush, a four-inch flat brush, and a round brush. Heads up that the drill is *not* included, but consider a basic Black and Decker one ($49 on Amazon) if your toolbox is in need.

    Promising review: "I thought my hard water stains would never come off my shower doors, but I bought this awesome brush set, and it's amazing! I’ve tried all the hacks — drier sheets, clean erasers, lemon, vinegar — nothing works like this brush! I used Zep shower cleaner with it! In the picture, the side on the right is the part of the door I cleaned, and I still have to clean the left side." —Traci D.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in six colors and stiffness levels).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Every winter, my fingers and knuckles crack and bleed. I've tried everything on the market to heal my hands. I received this hand cream yesterday and when I put it on, I could tell right away that this was better than anything I'd tried. This stuff started working immediately. I filled all the cuts and cracks on my hands with this cream, and today they are almost healed. I believe that this is the best hand cream ever made on earth." —Steve

    33. A Clorox toilet cleaning kit that will make it so easy to clean, you have no choice but to do so often and then send a photo of your work to your mom. She will be so proud!

    amazon.com

    The kit comes with one wand, a caddy, and six disposable scrubber refills.

    Promising review: "Do you ever look at your toilet brush in disgust and resentment? How is a dirty used-up brush still sitting in your throne room? You clean your bathroom, but then you put that sucker down in its place and it's just mocking you. It's never truly immaculate. Never knowing true cleanliness. Fear no more. Now you can shine your porcelain throne and not have to worry about a used up toilet brush mocking your clean, sparkling bathroom. Gone are the days of breathing in dirty poop particles from the reusable potty-cleaning-brush-thingy.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The struggle with hangers has been real for quite some time, I wish I would have known about this thing sooner! This has saved me a TON of room and hassle!" —Kara Adams

    Get it from Amazon for $11.79 (originally $19.28).

    35. A rust stain-removing gel so you can finally stop telling yourself that you have a purposefully orange shower just to get yourself to step in. The deception ends here!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I cannot say enough great things about this product. We just purchased a home that has a well with very high iron content in the water. I tried everything to remove the stains from our three toilets but nothing worked. I found this product online and immediately went to Amazon. The results blew me away. I didn't have to scrub at all. I let it sit in the tank for several hours and the results floored me!" —Toni Huitt

    Get it from Amazon for $12.97.

    36. A can of Easy-Off oven cleaner, because if you set the fire alarm off because of baked-on food even one more time I'm afraid your roommates may ask you to pack your bags and leave.

    amazon.com

    This product works in just *40 minutes*, but it's safe to leave overnight for maximum effectiveness (or if you're just feeling lazy).

    Promising review: "Simply UNBELIEVABLE. Fume-free and no gloves needed, but dissolves ANYTHING cooked on! I had not cleaned my oven EVER. I simply sprayed it on, shut the door overnight, and wiped it off with paper towels. I don't have to dread cleaning the oven ever again! You can use it for everyday spot cleaning and only have to let it sit for a couple hours for minor things. I used it on my broiler pan that would not scrub clean with even steel wool — no need to scrub ever again now! My crockpot leaked over the bowl and burned on inside of the heating chamber. I just sprayed, covered, and wiped in morning. I plan on using it to clean the grill in the spring and am sure it will make it a breeze." —Andrew J.

    Get it from Amazon for $5.97.

    37. A bottle of Fanola purple shampoo to keep your gorgeous (and probably expensive!) platinum hair from getting brassy. Yes, love to protect an investment while looking like a beautiful ice queen.

    Promising review: "I'm not one to leave reviews, but this product deserves it! Holy cow! I was going to go into the salon to brighten my hair up, but after discovering this product I cancelled my appointment. I'm totally in love! This shampoo is not drying at all and just after two washes I achieved my desired results! I can't recommend it enough!" —Rachael

    Promising review: "I have used every product that you can find on the shelves of your local store. When I sprayed the cleaner on the light beige interior of a 25+ year-old car, the interior turned to its original color. After years of detailing, I had assumed at this point, the color was set and that's it, not with this stuff. While cleaning it I literally said out loud, 'No way, no way,' because I was in disbelief at how amazing it worked, and the results are in the compliments I receive from friends." —Amazon Customer

    39. A carpet cleaning solution to reverse the YEARS of dirt and grime you've subjected your floors to. Yes, it's a floor and that's what happens, but maybe just thank this cleaner and promise it you'll start taking off your shoes from now on?

    The solution is biodegradable, so no harm will come to your pets and kids when hey inevitably decide to roll around on the carpet while it's still wet.

    Promising review: "This is a wonderful product. I have an older dog who can't always wait until I get home from work so accidents occasionally happen. I have a Hoover Rug Scrubber and this product is very easy to use with my machine. Carpet Miracle works amazingly well on stains and odors, even those that have set for a while. I did the carpet in the 'room of shame' twice just to be sure, although for normal soil and odors once should be more than enough. It leaves behind a wonderful clean, fresh scent, and the carpet feels and looks wonderful. I plan on continuing to use this product to keep my carpets clean and my home smelling fresh." —Vicky Faurot

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.
