    Amazon / Via

    Reviewers say it's incredibly easy to use and love that it's small enough to tuck into their pocket or purse.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $19.99.

    2. An all-natural multipurpose cleaner that'll dissolve kitchen grime, refresh your bathroom, and clean up pet messes with just a few spritzes. It's infused with the herbaceous scent of basil, so you'll be hard-pressed to not spray it all over your entire house.

    It works on all non-porous surfaces.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $5.97+ (available in five scents).

    3. A lint remover that'll de-pill your fave sweater, without damaging the fibres. It's completely manual and has a built-in lint brush, so you can keep all your fabrics clean and smooth.

    Alice Prendergast/BuzzFeed

    "I have a dog that sheds, and about a billion blankets that also shed. While those things are great for me, they are not great for my couch. I bought this lil' doodad to help me de-fluff and remove all the annoying pills from my sofa, and boy does it ever work. It has a razor head on one end (along with three interchangeable razors of varying intensities) that I use to scrape away pills, and a classic velvety lint brush on the other. It's worked serious wonders on my furniture and I've even moved on to brushing down my crewneck collection with it." —Alice Prendergast

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $19.99 (available in three colours).

    4. A pack of Mr. Clean Magic Erasers that'll tackle even the most bonkers kitchen messes (seriously — not even baked-on egg yolks stand a chance). Unlike regular sponges, they won't shred or disintegrate the next time you're doing a deep clean.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "I live with two small children and, as a result, I'm constantly cleaning up after them. These magic erasers are a true blessing. Instead of scrubbing away stains with a bucket and cloth like Cinderella, I can quickly and effectively remove whatever mysterious marks and stains I find on tables, walls, and other surfaces in seconds. Like this beautiful crayon mural, for instance. It took less than a minute to clean up, and all it took was a little water and elbow grease." —Kaysey Davis

    Get a pack of two from Amazon Canada for $2.97.

    5. This mini broom and dust pan set that'll help you tidy tiny messes, without needing to whip out your whole cleaning kit. The silicone-rimmed dustpan is super deep, so dust and dirt will stay contained.

    I know I reached adulthood when this lil' kit got me SO👏🏻FREAKIN'👏🏻EXCITED👏🏻. The slim shape is absolutely genius, tucking easily between bottles of cleaning sprays and miscellaneous under-the-sink items and saving me tons of storage space. Thanks to the silicone rimming, I can easily sweep every last fleck of debris into the dust pan, and the palm-sized broom is compact enough to fit where normal ones just can't go (like between appliances or under the sofa). Consider me swept away by this mini gizmo!

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $12.99.

    6. A stove cleaning kit that'll make your cooktop look brand spankin' new in moments. Apply the cream to your stove, then give it a few minutes to sink in and work its magic. After that, it's just a matter of scrubbing it off with the built-in sponge tool, and presto! You've got yourself a sparkling cooktop.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    It comes with cleaning solution, a razor, and a scrubbing tool. For really stubborn messes, you can use the razor to scrape off the cleaning cream.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $8.77.

    7. A pack of eco-friendly detergent strips that are as gentle on skin as they are on the planet. Since you only need one strip per load of laundry, you won't need to mess around with spill-y liquid detergents ever again.

    8. A purse organizer that'll protect your handbags from dust and still make it easy to find the one you're looking for. The vertical design means you won't need to sacrifice a whole shelf in your closet for your precious purses.

    Amazon / Via, Kat Angus/BuzzFeed

    "I'm only a budding purse enthusiast, but I could already tell that I was going to struggle to store my bags properly in my two-bedroom apartment in Toronto. But this organizer is the perfect fix! It can hold up to eight bags at once, and the clear plastic means I can always see which purse is where (and it'll protect the fabric from dirt and dust). I haven't filled every pocket yet, but I'll get there (I say as my credit card weeps). As a bonus, the pockets can also be used to store towels, linens, baby supplies, and whatever else you're struggling to organize." —Kat Angus

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $15.99 (available in three colours).

    9. This spray foam cleaner that'll help you buff out fingerprints, smudges, and grease on pretty much every surface. The formula easily dissolves grime, and the convertible spray nozzle means you can choose between a spray or foam (depending on your needs).

    Victoria Kuglin/BuzzFeed

    I use this on all my stainless steel appliances, but it also makes bathroom messes (like hard water stains and tub rings) disappear like magic, too. The best part? It takes literal seconds to eliminate even the grossest stains — no intense scrubbing required.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $4.39.

    10. A Scrubbing Bubbles toilet stamp that'll keep your porcelain throne looking (and smelling) fresh as a daisy, while minimizing chore time in the process. And it's super easy to use, too — just stamp it into your toilet bowl and get on with your business!

    Alice Prendergast/BuzzFeed

    12. A cleaning pen that'll restore your bling to its former glory. The formula is non-abrasive, so it won't leave your jewels looking cloudy or murky, either.

    Amazon / Via

    "My best friend introduced me to this miracle-worker of a product (ON HER WEDDING DAY!) and I feel compelled to share it with the world. I swear, it's that good. I quickly bought my own Diamond Dazzle Stik and never looked back! It keeps my engagement ring and wedding band (in addition to all my other pieces of jewelry) sparkling like the day I got them. I've even used it on cubic zirconia studs to spiff 'em up a little. All you have to do is wet the tip, twist the back of the pen, scrub your gem, and rinse 'em all off (PLEASE KEEP YOUR DRAIN CLOSED). This pen is a game-changer and is my go-to gift for any newly engaged couple." —Heather Braga

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $11.99+ (also available in grey).

    According to reviewers, it's especially useful for cleaning annoying bathroom messes (like dirty grout or drain grime). It's battery operated, so make sure you keep a couple AA batteries on hand.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $15.99.

    20. An all-natural yoga mat spray that'll help keep your exercise equipment sanitized and smelling fresh. Thanks to a naturally anti-microbial combo of peppermint, tea tree, and lavender oils, your yoga mat will get the deep clean it needs.

But this spinning makeup brush cleaner has totally changed the game. I cleaned and dried all of my makeup brushes in under ten minutes. Now I'll actually clean them on the regular." ⁠—Kat Angus
