    1. Double shower hooks so you can easily remove the curtain for washing without disturbing the liner.


    Promising review: "I'm so happy to no longer have to deal with the shower curtain or liner falling off of the hook. I love the fact that the double hook allows me to remove either the liner or shower curtain without the hassle of removing both. I don't know why I waited so long to order these." —Tanner L.

    2. A disposable cleaning wand that'll help you keep a safe distance from poo particles. Even the grossest toilet won't stand a chance against this!

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $8.88+ (available in three pack sizes).

    3. A bottle of Barkeeper's Friend soft cleanser for tackling anything from rusty knives to grease-marked pans to stained porcelain sinks.

    One reviewer said it even removed permanent marker! Read our review of the Bar Keeper's Friend soft cleanser.

    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

    4. A cordless Dyson V7 vacuum to make sucking up crumbs and dust bunnies a breeze — you might even *gasp* enjoy vacuuming!

    Yi Yang / BuzzFeed

    Read our review of the Dyson V7 vacuum (#4 on the list)!

    Promising review: "I always wondered what the hype was all about for Dyson vacuums. Now I know. I just traded in my heavy, corded vacuum for the V7 Animal and wow am I impressed! Didn't lose suction and had enough battery life to take care of about 2000 square feet in one go, with multiple stops to empty the dirt cup. I also love how convenient it is to store." —Rachel M

    Get it from Amazon for $299.

    5. Or, a robot vacuum so you can indulge in your lazy side and still have clean floors. This thing is so quiet you can take a nap while it's running!


    This robo-vac has an infrared-sensor for evading obstacles and drop-sensing tech to avoid falls. It also automatically recharges so it's always ready to clean. It comes with a remote control (two AAA batteries included), charging base, AC power adapter, cleaning tool, an extra set of high-performance filters, four side brushes, and five cable ties. It can clean continuously for up to 100 minutes.

    Promising review: "My husband bought me this for my college graduation gift. I can’t say anything bad about this robo vac! I love it! I have hardwood in the living room, tile in the kitchen, and carpet in the bedrooms. We have a Labrador Retriever inside so there's lots of hair and it’s doing a great job picking it up!" —karissa leeann windham

    Get it from Amazon for $219.99 (available in two colors).

    6. A color-coded cutting board that can prevent cross-contamination. Plus, you only have to wash the plastic mats and not the bamboo board.


    This set includes one bamboo cutting board and seven flexible, BPA-free mats. The mats can be inserted inside the bamboo board for storage.

    Promising review: "One of our biggest issues in the kitchen is always the prep space! I loved the idea of this cutting board simply because of the different mats that come with it. Since there are many mats that are labeled for different purposes, cross-contamination is never an issue. Additionally, clean up is really easy as we no longer have to clean a wooden board and then maintain the board after washing damage. Great purchase!" —K. Vance

    Get it from Amazon for $26.92.

    7. All-natural bottle cleaning tablets for restoring your stainless steel thermos to a brand new state. The best part? No scrubbing required!

    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

    8. Heavy-duty cleaning wipes to remove stains and splatters in any part of the house, from the kitchen to the garage.


    These wipes are non-abrasive so they're safe to use on smooth surfaces like car exteriors.

    Promising review: "I think these wipes are made out of magic because they can clean just about anything with very little effort! One wipe cleaned my ENTIRE BATHTUB, including the hard water buildup and some residual soap scum. The wipe stayed wet for the entire use, and there was absolutely no sweating involved. I hate cleaning but I was so pumped about the tub, I took wipe #2 to my hood vent and good golly, it's like it's brand new. I've told everyone I know to buy these." —JenM

    Get a 90-pack from Amazon for $11.94.

    9. A pair of dusting slippers so you can polish your floors simply by walking around.


    Promising review: "This is my second pair of slippers. I use them at home on my laminate flooring. They help to keep the floors clean, work great for quick spot cleaning, and are durable if you wash them frequently. They are also quiet, which was my main motivator. Plus you can do the 'Risky Business' slide." —DanielDJr.

    Get them from Amazon for $22.99 (available in sizes 6–9).

    10. A pack of dishcloths that won't get soggy and stinky or fall apart like sponges.


    They stay odor-free without washing or microwaving and are safe to use on non-stick cookware.

    Promising review: "I bought a set in 2014, and I'm back to buy a second set now, only because three of the four from my previous set have mysteriously gone missing over the past month (I have a new housemate, but I'm not pointing any fingers...). They held up very well, they do a great job of scrubbing dishes without getting all grimy and smelly, and they're a cinch to clean by rinsing under running water, putting them in the dishwasher with the dishes, or tossing them in the laundry with the clothes. I won't go back to sponges or traditional dishcloths." —K. Bonner

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $7 (available in three colors).

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

    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. 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+.

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

    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 $5.14.

    13. A spill stopper so you won't have to scrub the stovetop (yet again) because the pasta boiled over.


    It's made of heavy silicone that's heat-resistant up to 400 degrees and microwave- and dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "Works great. I got it as a Mother's Day gift for my mom since she's always boiling stuff over. Especially when family is over, the house is busy and she forgets about it and next thing you know, water is all over and then she has to scrub the stove the next day and well, she's retired and shouldn't have to do that. So I thought I would get this for her and see if it worked. It works and she loves it. No more boiling over the pots. When the family is over, it's always mashed potatoes or pasta so this saves her so much scrubbing the next day. I am glad I got it for her." —Chris w

    Get it from Amazon for $20+ (available in two colors).

    14. A concentrated mold and mildew remover that'll work on grout, showerheads, or even ceilings with little to no effort on your part.


    Promising review: "My husband didn’t think our grout was originally white, but I knew better. I put this on before bed on a section of grout in the shower and woke up to THIS the next morning. Gorgeous and bright white, no scrubbing at all!! Just rinse it off. Absolutely buying another bottle. It wasn’t quite enough for my entire shower, but to be fair, we have a lot of small tiles. I think two bottles will get the whole shower floor." —thekuan

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    15. A cooktop cleaning kit for dislodging stubborn stains that you previously thought were impossible to remove.

    This set comes with a 10-ounce bottle of cooktop cleaner, one cleaning pad, and one scraper.

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $11.03.

    16. A cutlery brush for a safe and quick way to give your forks and knives a thorough scrubbing.


    Promising review: "This product makes cleaning knives easy. The worst thing I do to my knives is leave them in the sink because I set them aside to wash with other dishes. This specialized tool makes it a cakewalk to do a quick pass on my knife right after I use it." —cooljames

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in two colors).

    17. A microfiber blind cleaner so you don't have to painstakingly dust off one layer at a time.


    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 $8.99 (available in blue and green).

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

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $5.27.

    19. A garbage disposal cleaner for blasting away odor-causing particles stuck in the pipes. Bonus: it has a fresh lemon scent.


    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

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $5.99.

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


    Promising review: "The bigger brush stayed together without fraying for my entire laundry room. I could do many more rooms with this brush — unlike a toothbrush! Buy them!" —Skylar

    Get a two-piece set from Amazon for $6.99 (available in two colors).

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

    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 $8.99.

    22. A bleached-based cleaning spray that'll make mold and mildew disappear like black magic.

    Promising review: "I bought this with a lot of doubt. But it was almost like fading ink. In seconds right before my eyes, the mold in the edges of my tub went away. I was truly amazed. Other products I had to use a brush to clean but not this cleaner. It went away right in front of my eyes." —Jeremy Allgrunn

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in four sizes).

    23. A spray mop with microfiber cleaning pads for a serious upgrade from your ratty string mop. It'll actually absorb messes instead of just spreading it around.


    This is safe to use on all floor types including hardwood, vinyl, laminate, and tile. It comes with a 22-ounce refillable bottle that you can fill with your own cleaning solution and three microfiber mop heads. The microfiber pads are reusable and machine washable up to 100 times!

    Promising review: "We've tried several mops over the years, but this is an absolute winner. My wife loves it, and the built-in spray dispenser allows for painless easy mopping, whether of the whole kitchen or just spot messes. Great purchase, and we do recommend to friends!" —Tony

    Get the kit from Amazon for $44.31.

    24. A pet hair remover (sort of like a pumice stone for fabric) to pick up everything your vacuum can't.

    Some reviewers recommend wearing gloves while using this because it has a rough texture.

    Promising review: "This product lives up to its name. Dog or pet hair cannot simply be vacuumed up. Some hair will be picked up by a vacuum, but for the most part, the hair will remain embedded in the carpet. I used the Fur-Zoff on the carpet of my car, and it sure did the trick. It literally picked up the hair. And after you get the hair piled up, just simply vacuum up the clump. Be very careful around edges of plastics, etc., because it will scratch it. I accidentally got careless and knicked the bottom of my center counsel. Around the edges, I would recommend a rubber bristled brush. Just brush the hair to the center and let the Fur-Zoff do its thing. Now I can understand why car detailers charge extra for pet hair removal. It is very tedious but well worth it. I highly recommend this product. And it doesn't cost much too, which is an added bonus." —Geo

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+.

    25. A drill brush attachment so you can use less elbow grease and let your power tools do all the hard work for you.


    Promising review: "This thing is wonderful. Does the job quick. Could never get the shower and sink clean without killing myself. Been waiting 30 years for this product! Helpful tip: put a plastic grocery bag over your drill with a hole for the bit just to make sure you don't get water or soap spraying onto your drill." —Bad Voodoo

    Get it from Amazon for $10.41+.

    26. A squeegee that won't leave streaks behind and has a hook so you can hang it up for easy access.


    Promising review: "Finally found the perfect squeegee that actually does the job leaving zero streaks! I'm not sure if it's because of the silicone but this squeegee has made my life cleaning our house so much easier! The handle is so very comfortable and it's so easy to use! I have carpal tunnel in both hands, lupus, arthritis, and other health issues that prevent me from doing a lot of activities. I've tried many different types of squeegees to help make my life easier so that my body isn't in as much pain at the end of the day. This squeegee has literally out done itself! I've been using this to clean our mirrors, windows, and shower glass doors. No more spots or streaks. Finally, my house is starting to look as if it's being professionally cleaned." —Tiffany A. Jakubiak

    Get it from Amazon for $12.47 (available in two colors).

    27. A carpet cleaner to destroy all evidence of a ketchup crime scene. It'll also work on upholstery like car seat covers.,

    Promising review: "It’s a miracle in a bottle. My German Shepherd mix decided to pull a black fountain pen out of my purse and chew it to pieces on my beige carpet while I was sleeping — this cleaner lifted the stain and now it’s like the devastation my dog caused never happened! As soon as I saw it lifting the ink, I got back on Amazon and bought more bottles. I will never let myself run out of this. I use it in my Bissel carpet cleaner for some crazy good cleaning power. I’ve become that weird lady that goes around singing the praises of a cleaning product. No regrets." —L. Logan

    Get it from Amazon for $13.45.
