A bottle of
weekly shower cleaner perfect for getting your shower sparkling and keeping it that way. Plus, you just spray this on and rinse it off the next day — no need for tough scrubbing!
Promising review: "I doubted that Wet and Forget would be the super shower cleaner as promoted, having used other not so super cleaners. What a surprise when I did as it says — spray on, forget it for a day, rinse off, and voila, a sparkling clean white tub and shower. And there is no toxic smell. My back thanks you." — Granny
Promising review: "This Easy Off made my oven mess just that! Easy Off! We recently bought this home and both ovens were in terrible shape. The top oven is 'self-cleaning,' supposedly, but the cleaning cycle left it a mess. So... I bought Easy Off oven cleaner and now both ovens sparkle. Yay!!" — Judy
A bottle of
stainless-steel cleaner for all those annoying smudges, drips, and fingerprints.
Promising review: "We got our first stainless-steel appliance — a refrigerator — a few weeks ago and was told by several to buy this to clean it with. We got some right away, and it is easy to use and leaves a great shine on the surface and cleans it very well." — damdis
Tide pen that you should really just go ahead and stock up on, so you can keep one in your bag, one at home, and one at work and have total protection from unexpected stains.
Promising review: "My sister got wine cooler all over a bright green top. We used the Tide to Go and believe it or not, every stain came out. This Thanksgiving my 4-year-old nephew got cranberries on his good sweater. Well we put the Tide to Go on it and it came out as good as new. I take this product in my suitcase whenever I go on a trip. Don't leave home without it!!!!" — Rainey
robot vacuum because it's literally the easiest way to vacuum — I firmly believe robot vacuums are proof we are living in the future.
Promising review: "Excellent product. The first few runs the vacuum is mapping the house so it runs a lot of times through the same place. Later on you see that it becomes more efficient. It is super easy to make it work. It doesn't come with paper instructions. It's all on the app, which makes super easy to follow. I didn't have any problems with wifi connection and it worked immediately. Another great thing about the product is that it really picks up dust! I wasn't expecting that much level of cleaning but I have dogs and it's able to pick up their hair. No regrets here." — Eric
Price: $199 (originally $299)
A pack of
Mr. Clean Magic Erasers that can basically get any stain removed, yes, like ~magic.~
Promising review: "I had not really used Mr. Clean eraser pads even though they have been around a long time. My daughter finally convinced me that they were a time saver, worked well, and I would be glad I used them. She is right. I highly recommend them for everything especially the white areas of my sneakers. They didn't work well at first and I decided to read the directions. You do have to WET them in order for them to work. Once I wet them they worked great." — sargeret
A bottle of
all purpose cleaner with a soothing lavender scent to make your cleaning experience all the easier.
Promising review: "This was my first time using Fabuloso, and I tried it solely because of the reviews I've seen online. I used it yesterday to clean my kitchen and stove, and I was not disappointed one bit!! It is everything the reviewers say it is, and more. It has a very pleasant scent, and it is one great cleaner. It is as good as some of the nationally advertised household cleaners I've seen on television. I mixed mine with water and put it in a spray bottle, and it was very effective. It really does cut though grease and grime. I'm going to use it in the bathroom next, and I am certain that it will perform well. The 128 oz. bottle is a lot of product for a nominal price. It is indeed a great value. If you haven't tried it, you should. You will not be disappointed." — Cook1948
A bottle of
toilet bowl cleaner that changes color when it's done working, so you can eliminate that pesky guesswork and be secure in your clean.
Promising review: "This is the best product I have ever found for cleaning a toilet and I have bought dozens. I live in an old mill house and the toilet was in a horrible state when I moved in. I have tried everything and was able to get it decently cleaned but there were still rust and black stains. No matter what I used or how hard I scrubbed, I could not get rid of them. I tried this because I had never tried it before. Not only was it quick, it got rid of everything!! I had to use it three times to get my bowl completely clean and sparkling white but it was worth it. It took every bit of grime, rust and any stain away. I am so glad to have found this great product. I recommend it to everyone." — sassyzanne
Promising review: "I continuously purchase these sponges over and over... for years! They're great for scrubbing stuck-on food right off those dirty dishes, pots and pans and never leave a scratch, even on the shiniest or flimsiest of surfaces. The other side wipes things clean and then washes and rinses out completely and easily. I just throw them in my dishwasher to remove any kitchen-ie odors and germs. The color(s) they come in work themselves into any type of kitchen decor. These are very necessary for me to do the complete job I do in my kitchen, very necessary, indeed." — ChocFULLONutz
Promising review: "I have a large kitchen with two sinks and two garbage disposals. My husband loves to cook, so my kitchen gets a lot of exercise. Granted I'm not the neatest person on the planet, but I have the nose of a bloodhound and can smell everything. I typically use these a couple times a month after the kitchen as been scrubbed down or after he makes a particularly fragrant dish. I love how the cleaner bubbles up during cleaning and releases a fresh lemon smell. It tackles any odors and makes sure my garbage disposal runs smoothly. It's a must-have in your kitchen." — ThisIsMyHappyPlace
A bottle of
glass cooktop cleaner to totally erase that embarrassing time you let a pot boil over. (Okay, we all know it was more than one time.)
Promising review: "I am a messy cook. I am constantly spilling food on my cooktop while I cook. Stirring, mixing splatter, pots boiling over and drips from spoons keep my stovetop pretty dirty. I love Weiman cooktop cleaner. I use it while cleaning up dinner dishes. It leaves my cooktop shining. Thank you." — Sunflower
mop-and-bucket system so you can keep your floors polished without having to worry about buying expensive replacement sheets.
Promising review: "I purchased the spin mop because I had shoulder/hip replacement surgery which makes it hard to wring a mop and bend but thanks to buying this product it's so much easier. The handle also extends to keep you from bending while mopping. I don't mind mopping now because the spin mop does the work for me." — blackpearl2
corded stick vacuum that also works as a handheld vacuum for the ultimate in versatility.
Promising review: "When I first opened the box I thought what a piece of junk and boy had I made a mistake. I was wrong. This has turned out to be a great little vacuum. Extremely lightweight and the suction is terrific. I have 3 cats and a dog and hair is my biggest problem. The Dirt Devil sucked it all up on the first try. I'm a believer and would definitely recommend this product." — anita12354
An extra large
broom and dustpan so you won't have to sweep for years to get your floors nice and clean.
Promising review: "Best broom I have owned in YEARS. Immediately upon taking this out of the box, it was quality. I have brooms in my work restaurant that aren't even this sturdy. The bristles are fantastic also. I highly recommend this if you are looking for a wonderful broom." — Anthony
A pack of
microfiber towels that are the ultimate multitaskers — they'll basically replace paper towels, dusters, and even mop pads. (And bonus! They're also great for drying hair, especially if you have curls.)
Promising review: "These are very nice. Large enough and very absorbent. I use them in place of paper towels to dry hands while working in the kitchen and to clean with (trying to save those trees!!). They wash up great. Would highly recommend!" — KrisG
Price: $6.50 for a pack of 12
A bottle of
leather cleaner perfect for furniture, cars, purses, shoes, and more.
Promising review: "I was unsure that I would like this leather cleaner and conditioner as the price was so much lower than other named products. I have three sets of leather couches and two active dogs. My husband likes to eat his snacks on the couch, like apples and yogurt, and share with the dogs. My big dog has lots of slobber and gets it on the leather. I was surprised that all of that got cleaned up nicely with this cleaner and conditioner. It gave the leather a very nice patina and it seemed that I used very little of the product. I highly recommend it." — goswimmin
Promising review: "Brought back life to our 15-year-old ottoman! It's our 10-year-old dog's favorite nap spot. We also have a 6- and 8-year-old dirtying it up. Trying to clean it with other products left the microfiber looking blotchy. This actually lifted the dirt and dried evenly." — Tiffany
Pumie stick that'll remove rust, paint, stains, buildup and more with just a little elbow grease.
Promising review: "I have a spare bathroom that does not get used often. I make it a point to flush the toilet once a day and thoroughly clean it every other week (dependent on use obviously). With time, a hard water ring appears and my Clorox wand simply does not remove it. In comes the Pumie! For best results soak the Pumie for about 10 to 15 seconds in the toilet water. Then gently rub the Pumie against the hard water ring. After some scrubbing, the water ring disappears. Great product and will continue to use!" — Ernie
A bottle of
Bar Keepers Friend cleanser because it'll help you realize just how sparkly all the metal things in your life can actually get.
Promising review: "I use non-stick spray in my pans and have used Bar Keepers Friend for years to remove the residue. It's gentle, but excellent for stainless steel. It cleans the bathroom sink, leaving behind a beautiful shine. An excellent product at an excellent price." — Annajustmay
pet vacuum that'll erase all those little accidents from Fido and Fluffy.
Promising review: "Such a huge difference from my old vacuum! I'm in love! I love all the accessories and the swivel feature! My only small complaint is its a bit heavy for the swivel but it doesn't bother me! Oh and my rug didn't even look that dirty. But this baby pulled up everything my old vacuum couldn't in a matter of minutes." — Boswell
Price: $109 (originally $154)
A pack of
dishwasher cleaner tabs because a cleaner dishwasher means cleaner dishes. It's basic math.
Promising review: "These little tabs have cleaned all the hard water buildup from my dishwasher and now it runs like new! Just drop a tab in with a full load and a detergent tab and run the load. My dishes and dishwasher have never been cleaner and I am definitely a faithful user now." — Teah
A bottle of
stain and odor eliminator that'll be literally lifesaving if you have pets, kids, or anything else that leaves, let's say, ~organic~ messes in the house.
Promising review: "This product works great for removal of cat urine on carpet, upholstery, and anything else. I have six cats and once in a while they decide to 'miss' the litter box. I cannot express what a great product this is. Try it you won't try any thing else!!!" — 5Bailey2015
Scrub Daddy because while it seems a little gimmicky, the flex texture feature is totally a game changer. It's stiff in cold water, for heavy scrubbing, but it softens up in warm water, so you won't damage any delicate pieces.
Promising review: "This sponge makes it so easy to get that stubborn scum off your pan. With a few gently rubs (vs. vigorous scrubbing with normal sponges), the cooking stains come right off and you don't scratch your high-quality cookware. The best part is that the sponge doesn't soak in all those oils and leftover cooking juices, leaving the sponge just as clean as before." — mrhamster
carpet and upholstery spot cleaner that'll get out even the toughest, longest set stains *without* the bulk of a full-sized carpet steamer.
Promising review: "This is a hard-working little machine that will make your life easier. I am so glad we purchased it. Suction is good for its size, it is easy to store, and the hose-cleaning feature is genius. We have two dogs, and messes do happen. This is great for quick cleanups, and also works well on upholstery. Thanks Hoover!" — Lakegirl
toilet brush, plunger and caddy set because if you don't have these things on hand already you absolutely should. There will come a time when you absolutely need them.
Promising review: "This is a very tidy way to keep the toilet brush and plunger handy. The brush is designed to clean both the toilet bowl and under the rim of the bowl. It does not take up too much space. I am quite pleased with this caddy." — Pauli
A bottle of
stone and steel cleaner that'll keep your countertops spotless and protected.
Promising review: "This works great if you have a stainless and stone/granite kitchen. I use it as a daily cleaner and it really does the job — with no streaks! Don't forget you have to seal and polish your stone and steel over time, and this is not a substitute." — shopper2919301
A bottle of
Goo Gone spray because if Goo Gone can't get it off, then it can't be gotten off. This magic stuff works on glue, wax, crayons, and basically any residue you can imagine.
Promising review: "This new Goo Gone in gel is the best! No more run and drip. This Goo Gone removed an adhesive that was impossible to remove even with fingernail polish remover. I wont mention the name of the tape, but the adhesive on this tape has super duper adhesive and is virtually impossible to remove! I applied a little Goo Gone and it removed it very easily. Great stuff. A must-keep around the house product!" — kishiwa
Promising review: "My daughter's friend pulled the top off a bingo marker and it went all over my daughter's shirt. I decided to see if by chance OxiClean Max force could get it out and it did!!! It also works great on my son's baseball pants." — Lovethisstuff
Swiffer dusting kit so you can trap all those pesky particles and not have them floating around and making you sneezy.
Promising review: "Great product for dusting. Holds onto the dust. I have a lot of allergies and this helps when dusting." — Suki1956
Price: $4.47 for one handle and five dusters
A two-pack of
Windex to keep those panes sparkling.
Promising review: "I have been using Windex for over 40 years. I will not use any other brand. It works great on all glass surfaces — windows, mirrors, etc. But it also works great on stainless-steel appliances too! This is great because I don't have to buy anything extra. It will be in my home for another 40 years — if I live that long!!" — Sharon530
And a bottle of
Dr. Bronner's soap, perfect for people who are looking for something natural and seriously multipurpose.
Promising review: "Heard great things about the brand so have used it to wash the baby bottles for both of our kiddos. Definitely recommend!" — TinkererToo
