    32 Cleaning Products That Might Actually Make You Like Cleaning

    Yeah, I said it. Cleaning can be fun. And I can prove it.

    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 Clorox toilet cleaning kit complete with toilet wand, 16 disposable sponges, and storage caddy. You might just feel like a mighty germ-eliminating wizard with that wand in hand. And after killing 99.9% of germs, who could blame you!

    I love how compact and convenient this kit is. You just snap a disposable sponge onto the toilet wand and start cleaning. Because the sponge is hexagonal in shape and also, well, a sponge, it's able to get into the dark and unseen crevices under my toilet bowl. The best part is that when I'm done, I just press a button on the wand and the sponge falls off and into the trash can. No cleaning and disinfecting a traditional toilet brush. This is truly toilet cleaning made easy!

    2. A set of two cute puffer fish dryer buddies that'll help your laundry dry quickly and thoroughly, because that's what friends are for.

    Promising review: "Not only are they basically eternally useful, they're freaking adorable. I no longer have to buy dryer sheets, as these little fish are fantastic at removing static and lint from my clothes. Even after quite a bit of use, they are showing no wear and tear, nor are they becoming any less effective." —BecauseITry

    3. A pack of fruity dish scrubbers crocheted to cleaning perfection. These durable nonscratch sponges will help make doing the dishes feel oh-so-peachy!

    Promising review: "What great sponges. And they're very cute! They sud up very well without needing too much soap, and they're a joy to use right out of the package. After a while they get dull, but I managed to use a single one for about five months before tossing it, so having four in a package is a pretty good value for the price." —Jody H

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in four other styles).

    4. A bottle of red wine stain remover since Pinot Noir is too good to have to sacrifice in order to keep your carpets and clothes clean. Just shake, spray, and wait. Then keep sipping!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I spilled red wine on my new white shirt and after feeling sad and mopey, I decided to try this! It worked like a charm, the stain came out and it was a good price. Instead of trying to get your shirt dry cleaned try this first because it will save you time and money!" —Cora S.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    5. A toilet bowl ring remover that'll help you scrub away any rust or lime buildup on your porcelain throne. Watching all that yuck vanish might just make you search for new yucks to vanquish.

    Promising review: "I bought a house and the toilets were stained BAD. This product was recommended to avoid having to buy a whole new toilet. And it worked INCREDIBLY! My toilet looks brand-new again! Highly suggest trying this product before buying a whole new toilet!!" —JollyLady

    Get it from Amazon for $11.04 (or Subscribe and Save for $10.49/month).

    6. Silver polish if the reason you never whip out your good silverware is because you're too daunted by how tarnished they are. Just apply the cleaner to a cloth and wipe your silver pieces spotlessly clean.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I purchased this polish so I could clean the antique silver that my grandmother needed polished. Well, color me impressed! I was expecting it to look a little cleaner, but this polish went far beyond that. It removed all the tarnish and dirt that had built up over the last decade. Everything shines beautifully! I was so impressed that I tried it on my jewelry and stainless steel refrigerator. It cleaned and shined quickly." —Amanda Dempsey

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48.

    7. Two packs of streak-free stainless steel wipes so your appliances can get some lovin' too. These will remove residue, water marks, and grease while leaving behind a protective barrier to prevent smudges.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Wow! I call these my 'miracle in a can/ wipes. These things are awesome. Buy them and cut down your cleaning time to just minutes. I used two and was able to clean my stove, refrigerator and microwave. What a great product. No buyer's remorse here." —Richard J. Jackson

    Get it from Amazon for $16.97.

    8. A reusable and plant-based surface cleaner kit that comes with a refill, because once you start cleaning with this powerful formula, there won't be any going back. And don't let its fresh scent fool you, this cleaner is tough on grime.

    Promising review: "I love that I get to try them all out! And it's so convenient that the two ounces are already measured out, so I can just pour it all in with warm water. So far Sagilmint has been my favorite! I can't wait to try the rest!" —Rebecca Hui

    Get it from Good Vibes for $15.

    10. A pair of reusable dishwashing gloves that'll turn your hands into magical cleaners that don't have to get wet or touch the food stuck to your picky eater's plate. You can even use these gloves to wash your car, clean the tub, or rinse off vegetables!

    Promising review: "How is it that no one came up with this idea years ago, or did they and I've just been ignorant of it all of this time? I have always let my pots and pans soak for days, as I simply hate getting really wet and using a grubby sponge or brush to clean such items. With these, I don't need to get wet at all and there is no grody sponge to deal with, so doing the pots and pans is actually kinda fun." —Denise

    Get it from Walmart for $14.99 (available in two colors).

    11. A magically magnetic spot scrubber for cleaning the insides of your glass jugs, decanters, and bottles because you are not Elastigirl and your hand can't smoosh into tight openings.

    Promising review: "I love this thing! My hubby buys me lots of flowers, and I'm always fighting to get vases clean. This scrubber handles any stuck on leaf/petal with ease. And it's kinda fun because, well, magnets are fun." —Kassie Hicks

    Get it from Amazon for $21.82.

    12. A water-based 12-in-1 steam mop cleaner – it effectively (and safely) removes dirt and germs from just about any surface! Use it on your tiles, hardwood, glass, and button-down shirts and watch as they all return to their former glory right before your eyes.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The steam mop does a very good job of cleaning. The grout tool is great, especially for all the pink mold and soap scum in the shower. Similarly, stubborn stains in the oven can be easily removed. It saves me a lot of time and money. Overall, I am very satisfied!" —Queenie

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99.

    13. A six-pack of Lysol's toilet bowl cleaner that hang from the toilet rim and do all the work (so you don't have to) — which means that every time you flush, you're technically cleaning. It doesn't get any easier than that.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.80.

    14. A power scrubber ergonomically designed because cleaning doesn't have to be an uncomfortable activity. With three brush attachments, you'll be able to scrub *anything* clean. Grout? Clean. Stove? Clean. Rims? You guessed it, clean.

    amazon.com, Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "Last night I was reborn. Everything I'd experienced up until that point suddenly was just 'before.' The present and future seemed like a beautiful, promising 'after.' 'What is the cause of this renewed zest for life?' you might ask. It was the use of the Rubbermaid Reveal Power Scrubber on my shower grout. It elevated a simple baking soda and water solution to alchemical proportions. My pink-tiled shower, which never looks clean no matter how many hours of backbreaking and bicep-burning labor I put in, now looks bright, clean, full of promise. An otherwise disgusting and dated purely utilitarian part of my home is now art. This this is absolutely incredible. Buy it, see for yourself. 11/10 would recommend." —Amazon Customer

    15. A natural and eco-friendly cleaning kit from Blueland, so you can keep your home and the planet free of plastic and pollutants. Whenever you're out of the cleaners, just order a refill and reuse the sprays and bottles.

    The Everyday Clean kit from Blueland
    Blueland

    Promising review: "I liked the products so much, I bought my daughter a set and she loves it! I can't explain in words how it feels to be able to clean everything without polluting the world with chemicals and the landfills with plastic. The best thing since sliced bread!" —Nada K

    Get it from Blueland for $69.

    16. A rubber broom to help you figure out how much of your carpet is actually carpet and how much of it is your purrfect pet's fur. It's also great for mopping up liquid spills and squeegee-cleaning your windows!

    amazon.com

    You could probably make a new dog with all the fur you pull up from your carpets!

    Promising review: "I bought this broom two years ago and it is still going strong! I have four large dogs and we have fur EVERYWHERE! This works so, so well! I am always amazed at what this picks up even after I just ran the vacuum. If you remove the head from the handle you can use the head to do in all the crevices along baseboards where fur gets trapped on the carpets. I also use it that way to do the carpet corners on the stairs. Lastly, I use it to get dust and cobwebs off the floors and ceilings. It truly is a super tool." —Roseann

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98.

    17. A natural lemongrass-scented panty detergent designed to remove discharge stains so your undies look and feel good as new! Its formula is anti-bacterial, anti-yeast, and anti-mold, so you don't have to worry about any ickies getting back to you.

    18. A portable carpet cleaner with such great suction and scrubbing features, you should be able to spot clean *any* stubborn pet stains in your house or car.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a really nice little shampooer. I have a dog with medical problems resulting in recurrent issues with soiled carpet. I was impressed with its cleaning ability, especially the suction and the cleaning solution that comes in the package. Having owned many other brands before, I can safely say that none of them have cleaned my home better than this small unit. That having been said, I also used the solution at half or less than the recommended ratio to help avoid the dreaded hard carpet and super soiled spots from soap being left in the carpet. Nice for the price." —Vi

    Get it from Amazon for $169.98+.

    19. A guitar brush because trying to remove the gunk that's built up on your strings with a paper towel is just a bad idea (okay, yeah I tried that). With a gentle microfiber pad on one side that can fit under frets and bridges, and a soft brush to shoo away dust on the other, you'll be able to keep your guitar pitch perfect!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a must-have for every guitarist. I always hated the dust that accumulates under the bridge and strings. This brush makes it possible for me to get every speck of dust out of every corner of my guitar. Regular cloth always leaves streaks or dust behind. This works great with the handy brush on one end and a micro fiber pad on the other. Best purchase all year!" —Aperion

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    20. A robot vacuum that quietly cleans under your couches and chairs, so you can focus on more important things. This smart vacuum has sensor to avoid falls and obstacles. Oh, and it automatically recharges!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing sucks...Its suction is so much stronger than the Roombas I have had. It picks up so much dust and pet hair. We do a full vacuum every other week with my Dyson, so I think of the robot vacuum as a supplemental vacuum. I was shocked at how much was in the dustbin after it's inaugural cleaning! I work from my home office, and this thing is quiet enough that I don't even turn it off during conference calls. This might be the thing I am most impressed with. My last Roomba was LOUD; you couldn't even have a conversation with someone in the same room, let alone someone on speakerphone." —LB

    Get it from Amazon for $149.99 (originally $229.99; available in black and white).

    21. A pressure washer so you can hose the dirt and grime right off your car, boat, fence, patio, and more. You'll feel like a superhero blasting all that stubborn sludge away!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    It even comes with five spray tips to help you attack light to heavy-duty cleaning tasks.

    Promising review: "This little guy is a game-changer. It is so quiet, and so powerful. I was extremely skeptical about buying such a small, not to mention, electric pressure washer because I've only used gas pressure washers in the past. Well I moved into my house last year, and started to wash this driveway off with a friend's gas pressure washer and decided it was not worth the time because it was not getting very much of the grime/dirt off. Well look at what this thing did. This home is near the beach and flooded in Katrina, and probably hasn't ever been pressure washed. This thing worked flawlessly. I can't say enough good things about this purchase. Would buy again with confidence." —James G.

    Get it from Amazon for $149.

    22. A pack of Bottle Bright cleaning tablets that'll take care of the tough stains and persistent odors living in your travel mugs and water bottles. The best part is, there's no scrubbing involved. So you get super clean gear with minimal effort!

    amazon.com

    These tablets are biodegradable, chlorine-free, and environmentally safe.

    Promising review: "At work we have stainless-steel coffee pots with a plastic top that no one cleans and they are often left on for hours at a time. The bottoms got very gross and someone tried to clean them with hot water and soap, but not much happened. I bought these, added hot water and two tablets (since they are bigger than a water bottle) and let the pots sit over night. So much came off with no scrubbing! I then soaked again for about another hour with two more and almost all of the grime was gone. I did scrub just a tiny bit to get all the stains out with a brush I had and you can see the difference between the before and after! They are almost like new! I did this on two pots and we were all amazed by the results. Ordering more so that we can clean regularly since it’s so easy!" —Heather

    23. A handy duster to clean your window blinds, air conditioner blinds, and car blinds. Just spray a little cleaner, and dust will be a thing of the past!

    This duster comes with five washable microfiber sleeves.

    Promising review: We built in a new community and the construction dust is a constant battle. I've been using the Swiffer Duster on my blinds, but it just didn't seem to do that great of a job. You would not believe the dust and dirt this got off my blinds! It takes a little longer to do the blinds, but they are much cleaner. I also like that I'm not adding to the landfill when I use this product. —Chris K

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in two colors).

    24. Pair with a natural dusting spray for a gentle yet powerful way to remove dust. Plus, it's got a cinnamon orange scent that'll make you wanna dust *everything*!

    25. Glisten Disposer Cleaner – it'll foam up and scrub your disposal, leaving a fresh scent behind instead of icky drain pipe odors. Um, did I mention that it FOAMS UP?! Okay, sorry, it's just that foam is cool...

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "It seems counterintuitive to put a little packet down your garbage disposal to clean it, but this does actually seem to work, at least for getting out weird smells that baking soda and vinegar don't really touch. I scrub the sink down first, especially around the garbage disposal area, rinse it down, and then just follow the directions on the package. I have used it with single, large-size sinks and with double sinks — only difference is that the double sink will have blue cleaning foam rise up the drain, which you rinse away when the disposal sounds clear again. I have tried the foaming cleaner in a can, but unfortunately it stopped coming out of the can about 10% of the way through. Went back to this tried and true." —KS

    Get it from Amazon for $5.93.

    26. An air purifier to help get rid of any smoke, odors, dust, mites, allergens, or mold hanging around in your air. It's got a three-stage filtration system that is not only energy-efficient (woo!) but also 100% ozone-free (double woo!). Now, just sit back and enjoy your clean air.

    Promising review: "I love this little thing! I bought it for my master bedroom, but I upgraded to an LV-H132 so this little guy went into my teenage son's room. It has been a blessing in disguise! As you know teenage boys are dirty and this has reduced dust and completely rids the room of any B.O or dirty laundry smells in his room. The timers are great and you can’t even tell that it’s on when in night mode. TBH I keep the purifier on the low setting all day and crank it up when it needs to be. It would be nice to include and auto function, but it’s not a deal breaker. Don’t try to save money by buying the older model, it’s not worth the savings. I am for sure going to buy another unit for my youngest son's room. I've also tested it in the kitchen, and it got rid of all the cooking odors." —R Granada

    27. An extendable microfiber duster perfect for reaching those dusty ceiling fan blades.

    Promising review: "This microfiber duster with the extension pole is great! I cleaned all the ceiling fans and got cobwebs off the ceilings in our cathedral ceiling rooms. I also used it for cleaning the basement stair landing. Works great and seems pretty sturdy. I would recommend buying this." —Rebecca Bailey

    Get it from Amazon for $13.86.

    28. A fun little microwave cleaner that'll steam up your microwave and make caked-on foods a breeze to remove. Just sit back and let angry mama take care of the rest.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a fantastic product. I sprayed it on my old brick exterior steps that are under trees, and wow! Within two minutes I could see immediate results. They haven't looked that good in over 20 years. I then sprayed a paver walkway and had the same results! I had some left over and sprayed the green moss covering my large deck, and it was gone instantly. I'm now ordering another one and then I'm heading out to the driveway and brick walls bordering it. Thanks for making my life a little easier." —Beverly Mabbitt

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in three other sizes).

    30. An angular brush to help you get into those hard to reach places where muck and crud love to hide. Now, they don't stand a chance!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Yes!!!! This works!!! I used this on the grout on the kitchen floor that we have not scrubbed in 10+ years. The first half hour I was using two toothbrushes to scrub. Why? Because I had the toothbrushes and didn't want it to go to waste. Boy what a waste of time! I should have thrown out the toothbrushes and used this in the beginning! I really appreciate this product and its design. The bristles stayed hard and was easy to control over the tiles. Easy 5 stars." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95 (available in four seven colors).

    31. A lightweight Dyson vacuum you won't break your back carrying around the house to clean different rooms. Just charge this vac, and take it for a deep-cleaning spin!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "It was time to replace our old Dyson cord vacuum. Since it had performed so well over the course of 17 years, I immediately looked to Dyson again. I admit I was a bit skeptical that a smaller stick vacuum could do the job in an almost 2,000-sq-ft house. We are senior citizens who have an active lifestyle, live in the mountains off of dusty roads, have house cats and two Aussie dogs. Since we also have horses and acreage, we are busy and the cleaning sometimes takes a lower priority. I wanted something that was easy to use, quick, and not having to drag a cord around sounded really good! I really, really like this handy and powerful vacuum. I was concerned about the small size of the bin, and how often I might need to dump it. But after using it to vacuum most of the house, I'm no longer concerned. And...it did a great job, our area rugs look great, and it moves so easily to our hardwood floors. One really big plus for us is that it runs off battery charge. We live off the grid and generate our own electricity with solar and wind. On cloudy, windless days, I was basically forbidden to vacuum, unless I started a generator. But now, I can have a charge ready and get it done! Couldn't be happier. Can definitely recommend this product!" —Debra Mickelson

    32. A cleaning gel (a.k.a slime) that'll pick up dust and dirt from your car vent, keyboard, phone, and so much more!
