    34 Cleaning Products You May Want To Buy For The Before-And-After Photos Alone

    These pictures are worth a million words, honestly.

    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. Water bottle cleaning tablets to get your beloved drinking vessel back to the condition it was in when you first fell in love with it at the store. I, for one, don't feel like taking a brush and soap and scrubbing away, and I'm going to make a fair assumption that you don't want to either.

    amazon.com

    Tablets are biodegradable, chlorine-free, all-natural, and environmentally safe. They're individually packaged, and don't require any additional brushing or scrubbing. Good for use on stainless steel bottles, mugs, hydration reservoirs, coolers, dishes, and hard-to-clean plastic containers and bottles.

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. A bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. 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

    2. A watermark remover cloth that'll get rid of those annoying ringlet stains on your furniture — you warned your family and guests to use a coaster but, of course, they didn't listen!

    amazon.com

    Cloth is reusable, and can be used to remove marks on wood caused by water, alcohol, and heat. It can also be used to polish metal and chrome.

    Promising review: "I must admit I ordered this as a last hope. I had a mark on my bedside table that I tried various things to remove, but was totally unsuccessful. I tried this today, and there is NO sign of the mark. It is like brand new again. I was thrilled with the result and highly recommend it to anyone, but would suggest you try it first to save yourself grief! It is inexpensive in the first place, but to know I can reuse it if necessary on another mark, (hopefully that doesn't occur, but life happens), makes it an even better value." —Kritik

    3. A rust stain remover spray you can basically think of as fairy pixie dust in a bottle. I mean, just look at the photos below. Point proven. Case closed. Onto the next one.

    amazon.com

    It comes in an easy-to-use trigger spray and is ideal for cleaning bathtubs, showers, toilets, colorfast fabrics, vertical surfaces, and hard-to-reach spots. Plus, it's non-abrasive, and made with non-hydrofluoric acid based formula which is safer than other similar liquid rust stain removers.

    Promising review: "Holy wizardry! Seriously it was more work to clean the mirror over the vanity than use this product. With almost no effort, this made my dark orange, iron-water shower stall white again. I definitely suggest wearing a mask or bandana and running the ventilation fan if spraying in an enclosed area. Great product!" —Jessica B

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    4. A carpet cleaning solution for those whose home deserves a million dollar-looking floor, but their bank account is begging them not to call a professional.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This stuff both cleans AND deodorizes carpets. It can be used in pretty much all machines — Hoover, Bissell, Rug Doctor, Kenmore, Carpet Express. The solution works on all water-safe surfaces like carpets, rugs, furniture, and automobiles. Plus, it's biodegradable and non-toxic.

    Promising review: "This works like a dream. I have light beige carpets, and this gets all the dirt and stains right out." —Karen M.

    5. Bar Keepers Friend soft cleanser to help you get a bunch of surfaces and objects in your home looking as good, if not better, than the day you purchased them.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    For those who are fans of the Bar Keepers Friend Classic Cleanser and Polish, this delivers the same results, but in a pre-mixed formula to make for a quicker clean. It works well against rust stains, tarnish, mineral deposits, soap scum, and indoor and outdoor grime, and is especially good on the following surfaces: stainless steel, brass, bronze, copper alloys, aluminum, ceramic, porcelain, glass, corian. Recommended to use in the kitchen (sinks, cookware, stove cooktops and exteriors, oven door windows, non-stone countertops, and plates to buff out knife marks), bathroom (sinks, bathtubs, showers, faucets, toilets, tile, and grout), and outdoors (rust stains, grills, vehicles, siding, and sporting equipment).

    Promising review: "I was so bummed when I scratched up my pretty white sink with pots and pans. I thought I'd need to have it replaced or try to sand it and refinish it somehow, but I bought this stuff as a last ditch effort to fix it myself. It takes some elbow grease to make them go away, the scratches don't just wipe off. But if you scrub at them for a few minutes they melt away pretty quickly. After two rounds my sink looks nearly brand new again. It also worked on a few mineral stains in my bathtub that I thought were permanent after soft scrub failed to remove them. Again, a little of this stuff, the scrubby side of a blue sponge, a little bit of effort and they were gone!" —Dan Borden

    6. A mold and mildew removal gel for making your bathroom surfaces look brand new. Mold and mildew are bound to happen, but there's no need to fret or call a professional to treat it!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Wow! I would give this 10 stars if I could. We've had issues for a few years with the caulking behind the handle of our kitchen faucet turning black from mildew. We've scrubbed with what seems like a million different products, with no luck. We were actually just talking about ripping out the caulking and doing a total replacement. But, my husband saw this online the other day and decided to order it. Almost immediately when he applied it, you could see it was starting to work. We left it on overnight and the black is COMPLETELY GONE! It's incredible. 1000% worth the (small) investment. Seriously — just buy this. It's amazing!!" —Nicole D.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    7. A toilet wand that'll prove wands of all sorts, even ones for cleaning toilets, are truly magical objects. Refer to disgusting photo below for evidence.

    amazon.com

    Comes with one ToiletWand, one storage caddy, and six disposable ToiletWand refills to kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses. Just click the wipe onto the wand, swish, scrub, and clean the bowl, pop the wipe off, and dispose in the trash.

    Promising review: "So, we have a toilet that belongs to the cats. We don't use it, we don't look at it, we like to pretend it does not exist. Even with semi-regular flushing, cat waste is pretty nasty stuff and built up quickly in the bowl. One of these wands cleaned it up in a single session! Before-and-after pic attached (above)." —Whitney

    Get it from Amazon for $8.88.

    8. A suede brush cleaner to stop you from having to pay absurd amounts of $$ to the shoemaker after every few wears of your blue suede shoes... or whatever color your shoes are.

    amazon.com

    Good for cleaning boots, shoes, coats, jackets, furniture, dance shoes, and sneakers, and is compatible with sprays, foams, eraser, and cleaning kits.

    Promising review: "BUY THIS THING! I got mud on my new suede boots and thought they were ruined, but this brush completely restored them. I was shocked. I even used it on an old pair of boots from college that I have considered ruined for several years now, and it did wonders on getting rid of the filth on top of the suede. This is absolutely worth getting!" —Gaby Scott

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    9. A natural stain remover so you can keep you and your family's life clean as can be with a product you can feel good about.

It's good to use on clothing, linens, silk, carpets, floor mats, car seats, cloth diapers, and other washable fabrics! It's free of hard chemicals, animal by-products, and petroleum-based ingredients.

    Promising review: "I've tried several stain removers and have to say this stuff really does remove stains. It has removed: blood, grape juice, baby barf, chocolate, grass stains, sweat stains, melon, pretty much everything. I have to say I was almost shocked at how well this worked. My wife says they should rename it 'chill mom,' because she no longer worries about stains at all. That's priceless when you have a very curious and adventurous little boy who keeps finding new ways to get dirty." —Martin Isaksen

    10. A microfiber blind cleaner for saying goodbye to dust! 🎵 I can see the sun clearly now the dust is gone. 🎵

    amazon.com

    Includes five microfiber sleeves that can be washed and reused!

    Promising review: "I got more excited about this find than is probably normal! This product is AMAZING! Everyone should own one. I've been using a Swiffer duster to clean my blinds. I have to clean one side, then the other, and there is STILL always dust left behind. This product is a game changer. You can clean both sides of two blinds at once and grip them firmly to get ALL the dust off. " —Sarah

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

    11. A pet hair eraser vacuum so you can take care of what is the only slightly negative thing about having a furry animal in your house — the HAIR. Everything else is great tho, we stan pets, go adopt a pet.

    amazon.com

    Features multi-layer filtration, and a 16 foot power cord. Includes two specially-designed nozzles to pull out dirt and hair from areas like the stairs and upholstery.

    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 Rumba, which is about as intelligent as a Q-tip. 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! 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 $30.99 (available in two colors).

    12. A magnetic spot scrubber to make cleaning glass quick, easy, and, TBH, kinda exciting.

    Promising review: "Most awesome cleaner. I saw this item on a YouTube video that highlighted neat, inexpensive inventions. I immediately ordered through Amazon and tried it out on a heavily used clear vase. For the first go, I'm very pleased. Takes a little to get used to, because the magnet is strong." —sarah

    Get it from Amazon for $8.52+ (available in four colors).

    Promising review: "When we moved into our new place the shower doors looked like they had never been cleaned before. I tried at least 10 different products and methods to remove the hard water spots but nothing even made a dent. Bio Clean, however, was like a magic eraser! I scrubbed each door for about 10 minutes and it was incredible! I’ve never written a cleaning product review before but this one is worth every penny." —Shane B

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    14. A red wine stain remover to buy immediately if the only thing you're better at than downing an entire bottle of your favorite vino at the end of the day is managing to spill it.

This takes care of any stain so fast and efficiently, it's become a party trick. I have seriously poured red wine over a white comforter to demonstrate how great it is to a friend once. It is a miracle in a bottle! We use it for all sorts of cleaning on materials around the house, and one bottle has lasted us years! This is definitely a product every home should have." —Melanie Nolen

    Get it from Amazon for $6.67.

    15. A box of OxiClean versatile stain remover that'll become your go-to in the stain-fighting department. No matter what the stain is, or where it happened, there is nothing this stuff isn't prepared to battle.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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.

    18. An Angry Mama microwave cleaner to get mad at you like a mother would, because how in the heck did you let your microwave get to this point? But hey, she's a mama, and in the end she's gonna clean up the mess you made because she loves you too much to let you do it all on your own.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This little device is great. Super simple. Fill to the lines with vinegar and water, nuke for seven minutes, let sit for two minutes, then wipe clean. My embarrassingly super gross microwave wiped completely clean with a couple paper towels. Highly recommend." —UglyPetty

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    19. A pumice cleaning stone that'll scratch away at those — TBH, pretty repulsive — toilet stains without leaving horrid scratch marks in the bowl.

    amazon.com

    It's over 40% denser than similar products so it has a longer life! The handle allows you to keep your hands clean while cleaning the toilet. It removes calcium, lime, and hard-water stains using gentle abrasive action, and cleans porcelain fixtures, hard-water stains, pool tile, toilet bowls, barbecues, steel, and stone.

    Promising review: "I have a 19-year-old master bathroom toilet that had accumulated some nasty stains over time, and regular toilet brushes and cleaning products just would not remove them. I decided to try this pumice stone, and it worked like a charm! Given the nature and severity of the stains, it required some elbow grease. But 10 minutes later, I have a new-looking bowl, and I see no signs of scratching." —Happy Retiree

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

To use, simply apply to the area with the oil stain and let it sit and dry for about 72 hours. When you're ready to remove it, simply scrape it away — one reviewer recommends using a credit card to do so! And ta-da!

    Promising review: "Had an oil stain on my untreated West Elm marble top buffet from a kids toy. I purchased the oil stain remover and crossed my fingers that it would work. I waited 72 hrs to let it dry completely, and then scraped it off with a credit card. It worked perfectly! I couldn't be happier with the results. I highly recommend this product!" —marv

    Get it from Amazon for $9.81.

    amazon.com

    Check out our write-up of the awesome CarGuys Super Cleaner!

    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-plus-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

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Gives your wooden furniture a protective, soft luster coating thanks to Carnauba wax and beeswax. It also prevents it from drying and fading. Good for use on antiques, dining tables, kitchen cabinets, wood doors, trim, and more.

    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, and several other areas that were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magic eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let it 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

    Promising review: "I bought this on a whim because my walk-in shower is just a pain to clean. I'm 51 and I guess I've just been old school with how I clean, so I was hand scrubbing it for years. The FIRST time I used this to clean my shower, it took five minutes AND it scrubbed my shower cleaner than it has been in years. In the corners, the floor, the glass door, everything came out squeaky clean. I'm NEVER cleaning my shower by hand again." —Terry

    Get it from Amazon for $12.70+ (available in six colors).

    24. A jar of mink oil that'll condition and waterproof your leather products. We all know you didn't spend more than half of your last paycheck on those fancy AF shoes just to throw them out the second they show any sign of wear.

    amazon.com

    Good to use on leather boots, shoes, purses, jackets, hats, baseball gloves, saddles, and harnesses. The oil helps to create a waterproof barrier against things that might cause damage or wear to leather. It dries within minutes, but it's recommended to test first, because it might darken some leathers.

    Promising review: "This brought back three pairs of my boots from the verge of death. The boots were dried out and stiff with age and neglect, but one heavy application of this mink oil softened them up and they look good again!" —Nakz96744

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    26. Goo Gone adhesive remover to help you finally tackle the residue you've been putting off wiping away in favor of binge-watching yet another episode of your favorite Netflix show.

    amazon.com

    This is good for removing stickers, wax, markers, crayons, glue, tar, window decals, glitter, labels, and gum... YES gum, I can attest. I somehow got gum stuck on my favorite jacket after walking through a subway turnstile and Goo Gone literally saved my precious coat. 🙏

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing. So far, I have used it to remove heavy adhesive from a tile floor where we had previously had a cover for a wire running across the area. I applied Goo Gone, scraped the majority of the adhesive and fibers off, then wiped off the remaining residue with a paper towel. I also used it to clean grease off of wood veneer cabinets using a paper towel, and it was so effortless! We have a microwave above the stove, and I also used Goo Gone to clean grease from the exhaust vents, which was so much easier than ever before." —Cass

    Promising review: "For a $5 item, this can really solve a major clog issue! I managed to clean out my bathtub drain, and now it works great. I also cleaned out my bathroom sink, which was drawing fine, but since I was already grossed out by the slimed hair I pulled out of the tub... I'm so happy to have found this little tool and suggest everyone have one on-hand for clogs." —Tammy Parker

    Get it from Amazon for $5.28.

    28. An oven cleaning spray so next time you go to open the oven door and pop in dinner, you're not tempted to puke all over it because of the yucky build-up you've let it accumulate.

    Good for use on ovens, broilers, and barbecue grills. Only takes about five minutes to spot clean.

    Promising review: "My oven was in bad shape. I had tried doing the whole baking soda and peroxide trick, but it made things worse. I tried this after seeing it on a BuzzFeed article and it actually worked! Let it sit for about four hours and the nastiness wipes off effortlessly." —Natalie C

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    29. A high-pressure steam cleaner that'll target residue on hard surfaces without needing chemicals or dangerous fumes. Just good ole' water. OR if you're feeling really ~fancy,~ try using distilled water.

    Promising review: "This worked like a champ cleaning the grout in the kitchen and bathrooms of the house I just purchased. 40-year-old house and maybe 40-year-old stains. This steamed them out, and even got paint off the hardwood. Nice. Couldn't recommend it more, it did exactly what I needed it to." —W. Pickel

    Get it from Amazon for $28.78.

    amazon.com

    Good for removing spots and stains from colorfast carpet, rugs, upholstery, and clothing without leaving a sticky residue or needing to rinse or vacuum. To use, apply to the stain, gently agitate with your fingers, and blot with absorbent cloth. This is non-toxic and should be non-irritating on the skin!

    Promising review: "I had terrible rust and oil stains all over the seats of my car when I bought it. I tried other cleaners to get it out, but they actually made the stains darker. I took it to the dealership to see if they could get it out and they flat out told me no, so I gave up and lived with it for almost five years. I tried this after it was recommended by a friend. I sprayed it on and literally watched the stain run right off my seat. It was amazing! I thought I was going to have to pay hundreds of dollars to replace the seats in my car because nothing else would work. This stuff really is awesome!" —Brittany

    Get it from Amazon for $11.44.

    31. Magic Erasers to make cleaning the bathtub as fast and easy as it is to get home at the end of a long day, and ditch responsibilities or a social life in favor of a bubble bath and a full bottle of vino, maybe two. Not that I'm speaking from personal experience or anything.

    Promising review: "These things are amazing! We have a rental property and the tenants trashed the house. I went to clean up and brought along these Magic Erasers. The bathroom was in really bad shape. I gagged for a portion of my scrubbing. These worked wonders. I'd say that they probably cut my cleaning time in half. Water stains, grime, whatever it was that those tenants left on the floor near the toilet...it left everything looking as brand-new as it could. Saved me a lit of time and headache. Highly recommend these little guys. They pack a punch!" —Crista Nalezny

    32. A cooktop cleaning kit because look: you're using the thing to make your meals, so naturally it's going to get dirty.

AGAIN not speaking from personal experience!

    amazon.com

    Comes with a 10 ounce bottle of cooktop cleaner, a cleaning pad, and a scraper. It helps to clean grease, stains, and remove burnt and baked-on deposits.

    Promising review: "As soon as I used this stuff, I couldn't believe it! We had a new stove that I didn't clean for months and assumed the burnt pea juice (my enemy) would just be a new stain forever. However, after one application, it was basically gone. I used the scraper that came with it and did one more small application on just that spot, and it was gone! Every time I use this it looks like my stove could be brand new." —Christi Lambertson

    Promising review: "Have you ever seen the movie The Santa Clause? There's a scene where Tim Allen's character shaves away his white beard and then ~WHOOSH!~ it reappears instantaneously. That's basically my bathtub and soap scum. I've tried many products to keep it at bay, but this is the only one that has ever really worked. Not only does it have a cute dog on the packaging, it also allows me to (easily!) wipe away dastardly soap scum without having to use a lot of muscle! Which is great, because I don't exactly have a lot of muscle to use." —Mallory McInnis

    Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised by how far these went. I did the entire floor of my large master bathroom plus a little of the shower with one pen. It is pretty forgiving and you have quite a bit of working time before it dries completely. This was not a quick task, but it went faster than I thought it would. I was worried the white would look too bright, but it just makes everything look so much cleaner. I'm very happy with this product!" —Jenelle
