    1. A disposable cleaning wand that'll restore the grossest of toilets to its original state.

    amazon.com

    This kit comes with one cleaning wand, one storage caddy, and six disposable refills (plus three bonus refills).

    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

    2. Or, a pumice stone for giving the ol' porcelain throne a deep cleaning sesh.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a 19-year-old master bathroom toilet that had accumulated some nasty stains over time that regular toilet brushes and cleaning products just would not remove. Decided to try this pumice stone, figuring that the worst that could happen would be that it scratched the porcelain and I'd have to replace the toilet... which was what I would have had to have done, anyway, if I couldn't get the disgusting stains out, since I was sick of seeing them and covering them up with blue bowl cleaner tablets. Pumice stone 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. Am very happy with this purchase...well worth the very low price!" —Happy Retiree

    3. A pack of descaling tablets to wash away mineral deposits in your dishwasher and keep it running efficiently.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "After using this product, I am happy to report that my $5 investment saved me over $500. I was ready to replace my dishwasher, due to super cloudy glasses, residue, and just not getting clean. Then I saw a product test review for Affresh in Good Housekeeping magazine. I was ordering some stuff from Amazon anyway, so I added that to my order. I did not expect the results I got! The glassware that I thought was permanently etched and ruined came out like new. Same with cutlery. The difference is unbelievable. I am amazed!" —Sheila

    4. A drain snake so you can unclog the sink without calling the plumber.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "When my wife and I moved into this new place, we noticed that there was a bit of water that just kept pooling near the drain in the shower. We tried at least two full bottles of Drano with success, but it was short-lived. A bottle of Drano costs about $6-8 for two attempts. One package of these and only ONE of the items used in this package made more short-term progress than all that Drano did. Less than $6 to save over $20 in drain cleaning products or even the prospect of hundreds from calling out a plumber? Hell yeah, I'd buy this again! Your hands will get messy but you will thank yourself for getting these. Your partner will thank you. If you have slow drains in your shower, there are only three words I can say for you to help fix that problem. Buy. This. Product." —Adam W.

    5. A garbage disposal cleaner that'll blast away odor-causing particles stuck in the pipes. Bonus: it has a fresh lemon scent.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Holy cow I didn't realize how easy and quick it was to clean a garbage disposal until I bought this product! Typically, in my naïve thinking, I'd just use vinegar and baking soda down the drain and call it good. Little did I know that there was an actual cleaning product available until I stumbled across it through a BuzzFeed article. So of course, I had to try it. Very simple instructions: it literally takes five minutes and some hot water and VOILÀ! You have a clean, no-longer-stinky garbage disposal. Let me say that anytime I got a whiff of an odor, all I did was drop one of those packs in the disposal and the smell was GONE! Plus the blue foam bubbling through the sink was amusing to watch ;-). Worth every penny!" —VadersGirl

    6. A bottle of soft cleanser for tackling anything from rusty knives to grease-marked pans to stained porcelain sinks.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    One reviewer said it even removed permanent marker. Check out our full review of Bar Keeper's Friend!

    Promising review: "Bar Keeper's Friend should really be called 'Homeowner's Magician'! I purchased this cleanser in an attempt to revive our stainless steel knife set, which is a great moderately-priced set that has seen better days, and I'm extremely happy that I did. The cleanser not only took away the rust spots with minimal difficulty, but it returned them to their original luster! After cleaning our knives, I gave it a shot on our porcelain sink, which I typically have to douse in bleach cleaner to remove the stains from, causing the entire kitchen to be filled with noxious fumes... and it worked beautifully! The stains came clean, and it made the sink look pretty enough to eat off of." —Kat Ferrari

    7. A 4-in-1 cleaning brush to sweep away the water and dirt marks on your precious suede and nubuck shoes.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This brush has a welt surface used for stronger cleaning on heavier scuff marks and stains, nylon bristles used for a lighter gentler cleaning on light scuff marks and for thin fine suede/nubuck, an arched half circle brush for easier cleaning on rounded corners, and a thin protruding brush for cleaning harder-to-reach crevices and grooves.

    Promising review: "Worked like magic! I had a brand new Calvin Klein suede purse. I took it to dinner at a Mexican restaurant, and it came back with grease streams down one side. I was devastated. I figured I'd try this brush before taking it to a professional. Seriously y'all — a few swipes with this brush cleaner and you couldn't tell there was previously a stain. 10 stars!" —Runnwme

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    8. A stain remover so you can drink wine on the couch without worrying about ruining the upholstery (or the throw blanket that you're cuddling in).

    amazon.com

    This stain remover works on fresh and dried stains without the use of bleach or phosphates. In addition to wine, it also works on coffee, blood, ink, fruit punch, sauces, red medicine stains, and even pet accidents.

    Promising review: "I fell in love with this product some 15 years ago, and I am so very happy that it's still available in the same wonderful formula as ever. It has a fantastic citrus scent and takes care of any stain (not just wine) so fast and so efficiently, it's become a party trick. LOL. 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.

    9. A bottle of fume-free spray that'll destroy all evidence of the fact that you haven't cleaned the oven since you first moved in.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm a little embarrassed to write this review; it's been six years since my last oven cleaning... After seeing the results, I couldn't help but spread the word. Sure, it took some beer, a little John Mayer, and a lot of elbow grease, but I got the job done, thanks to this handy little product. It did require two treatments; however, given the circumstances, this product accomplished quite a feat in just an hour. The attached pictures speak for themselves." —William Fredericks

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    10. A pair of deep clean brushes far more durable than old toothbrushes when it comes to scrubbing tile grout.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I HIGHLY recommend these brushes for grout. If you are on the fence of 'Ehhh do I NEED a grout brush? I could just scrub the floor...' Stop. Get these brushes. They are stiff and cut down the elbow grease time incredibly. Plus you can use them on anything." —Jennifer

    Get a two-piece set from Amazon for $5.99 (available in two colors).

    11. A leather spray to clean and condition an old armchair that's starting to look a little worse for wear.

    amazon.com

    It'll also work on shoes and bags.

    Promising review: "Wow! It's like a new recliner! My leather furniture is starting to show some wear, cracks, etc. Pictures are the recliner halfway done. This stuff makes the leather soft and supple and fills in the lighter cracks somehow. I cannot believe that I was considering replacing the furniture before I tried this! Next I will try my car seats..." —Kristen J

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98.

    12. An "Angry Mama" microwave cleaner so the splatters inside can wipe right off with a paper towel.

    amazon.com

    Just add water and vinegar and place this gadget in the microwave for 5–8 minutes on high heat. Afterward, wipe off with sponge, rag or napkin, and all the grime will come right off!

    Promising review: "I'm embarrassed to say I hadn't cleaned my microwave in about six months. It's an awful task. I ran Angry Mama one time, wiped down easily, then ran it one more time to get it detailed really clean. Highly recommend using it more often than once every six months for a super fast, super clean microwave!" —Kelsey

    Get it from Amazon for $8.68.

    13. A handheld duster that'll actually pick up dirt instead of just spreading it around. Plus, the microfiber head can be removed and tossed in the laundry when you're done.

    Yi Yang / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "We cannot believe how much dust and debris this duster is able to collect. After trying the disposable Swiffer dusters, we were looking for a more environmentally and wallet-friendly solution. This duster exceeded our expectations! It picks up everything from dust to crumbs to pet hair with ease. Once you have dusted to your heart's content, simply toss the dusting head in the washing machine, air dry, and you are ready to go dust-bunny-hunting again. We have always loved the OXO brand and this duster does not disappoint!" —Allison Reed

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    14. An all-natural cleaning tablet for soaking away tea and coffee stains in your thermal bottles. No scrubbing required!

    amazon.com

    These are biodegradable and odor-free.

    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

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $8.

    15. A spray gel to dissolve years-old rust stains right before your eyes.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The photos speak for themselves. When we bought our home, there was no water softener and years of iron buildup. We tried so many things on our shower. Nothing worked. We were convinced we’d be stuck until we renovated the bathroom. The Iron Out worked wonders. I still can’t believe it. We had to let it sit for about an hour. It then dissolved and wiped right off. Definitely use in a ventilated area if possible." —M. Gilardi

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    16. A bottle of grout and floor cleaner you can use with or without a steam mop. You'll get amazing results either way.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Wow, I'm highly impressed by this product! I bought it based on the high reviews on here. I had a bit of a 'duh' moment when I realized that it's used to be diluted in a Hoover steam cleaner (which I don't have), but I diluted it with water in an empty spray bottle, and it worked just as well! My main goal was to clean our dirty grout. Our grout had been cleaned, stained, and sealed two years ago but went from beige to gray in a matter of time thanks to toddler/dog/foot traffic. I tried the Pinterest ideas with vinegar, dish soap, and baking soda but that left my kitchen smelling sour and the baking soda paste left a scratchy film over my floors that took four moppings to remove. I diluted a bit of the Hoover liquid with water in an old Windex bottle. I sprayed it all along the grout lines, waited a minute, and then started scrubbing with a grout brush. Immediately, I could see the dirty liquid being pushed aside. I had a rag to wipe dry each line of grout. Granted, I was sore from scrubbing each and every line in half of my downstairs, but it was worth it when I saw the instant results. Long story short, this works! Would recommend it!" —Emily H.

    17. A cast-iron cleaner that'll have you singing: 🎶Scrapers gonna scrape, scrape, scrape, scrape, scrape...🎶 (You know, because it works so well.)

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Necessary tool to clean your cast iron pots and pans. Perfectly contoured to the rounded corners used by Lodge in their pans so you'll get any food stuck to your pan off easily. The plastic is sturdy, malleable but not so much that it will deform. Been using them for a couple months now, and I haven't had them break, and since I still can't get a properly seasoned coating on my pans, I have a lot of food that sticks (my fault), but these scrapers get pretty much everything off easily." —JGtz

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $2.69.

    18. A wood polish for eliminating unsightly scratches and watermarks from your wood furniture.

    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, 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

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48.

    19. A jewelry cleaning solution to make precious stones and metals sparkle like the day you got them.

    amazon.com

    The solution is non-toxic, and it comes with a small cleaning brush.

    Promising review: "ABSOLUTELY THE BEST JEWELRY CLEANER HANDS DOWN!!! I have a ton of jewelry — a diamond tennis bracelet, 14-karat rings and earrings, precious stones, pearls, and vermeil, too. I cleaned my expensive pieces, and they sparkled like they never have, the pearls' luster was so vibrant I was in awe. The one piece that sealed the deal is a Sleeping Beauty turquoise and diamond ring I have. The diamonds are okay quality, but after cleaning it, it shimmers and twinkles like it never has. Cleans vermeil beautifully, too!" —tammy

    20. A double-sided polishing cloth so your tarnished silver accessories and homeware will look brand new again.

    Yi Yang / BuzzFeed

    Read our full review of this silver polishing cloth!

    Promising review: "Over the years, I have been given more sterling silver jewelry than gold. I never knew how to get the tarnish off, and some of my favorite pieces have been too dull to wear. I started researching and found this guy. I love that it's huge, comes with a storable bag, and the instructions of what NOT to use it on. It got one of my pieces in almost-new condition. The piece even had some discolored spots but after letting it sit after cleaning for a few minutes, even those went away. Very impressed." —Amazon Shopper

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    21. OxiClean laundry whitener + stain remover that'll restore whites to their original color and brighten other colors. It's chlorine-free and color-safe.

    amazon.com

    Just add to every load of laundry or you can dissolve in some water to pre-soak to get out really tough stains.

    Promising review: "I can't use regular bleach without making a mess and inadvertently bringing back acid-washed jeans. This stuff is a life-saver. It brightens up my colors, revives my whites, and gets out stains as well as any funky smells that can be lingering around, especially in gym clothes or anything else that gets sweaty. It also does wonders for towels, eliminating that mildewy funk they can get and zapping any stains, even in kitchen towels. While nothing can really get out turmeric, alas, this comes the closest, and that's saying a lot!" —Scholar of the Shire

    Get it from Amazon for $7.71.

    22. A microfiber duster perfectly shaped for cleaning blinds and AC vents.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This duster comes with five reusable microfiber sleeves. Just throw them in the wash when you're done.

    Promising review: "We built in a new community, and the construction dust is a constant battle. I've been using the swifter 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 I 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." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    23. An adhesive remover to get you out of all sorts of sticky situations.

    amazon.com

    Read our full review of Goo Gone!

    Promising review: "I have a terrible habit of putting chewing gum through the wash which then gets stuck all over the barrel of the dryer. For years I'd just put up with having the gunk stuck on there, but I decided to give this a try to get rid of a particularly bad lot that got stuck on. It is amazing — the gum comes straight off with very little work, and for smaller amounts of gum you only need a tiny bit of it. One bottle has lasted for ages. It's also easy to clean off the Goo Gone itself once you're done. Excellent stuff." —mech4bg

    Get it from Amazon for $7.27.

    24. A stainless steel cleaner that'll not only polish away existing grease, watermarks, and fingerprints but will also help prevent new ones from sticking.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was truly surprised at how well this product worked. A friend recommended it, and I thought at this price, I would give it a try. I couldn’t believe the difference it made to my stainless steel appliances. Highly recommend using a microfiber cloth as directed. It buffed out all the smudges and fingerprints and does a good job of preventing future fingerprints. See photo: Right side is before and left side is after." —Amanda
