A pet stain and odor remover so you don’t need to get too mad at your adorable pets after they get a little too excited when you get home.


amazon.com

Promising review: “This stuff works sooooo well. I have tried many other brands of pet stain remover, and this one is definitely the best. I have two indoor cats with hairball issues; they are often spitting up hairballs, or stomach acid only before or after the passing of the hairball. (Sorry for the TMI.) Of course, they only want to do this on the carpet and rugs. This stain remover effectively removes the bodily fluid, hairball, etc., with a nice, fresh minty scent and no sticky residue. I keep a bottle upstairs and downstairs so I don’t have to go hunting for it during those 2 a.m. hairball vomiting sessions (because, of course, that’s the only time they want to throw up).” —Heather Coburn-Schill

A wheel cleaner to keep your caps shiny as heck. Enjoy feeling like you have a new car even though it’s just your beloved oldie after a little elbow grease!


amazon.com

Promising review: “It will take one look from your friends to say ‘Did you buy some new wheels?’ This stuff is absolutely amazing. For the full effect, dismount your wheel, spray the back. Go do something for 10 minutes. Wash with water, no scrubbing needed. Turn the rim face up, do it again. Do the rest of your rims, and don’t forget the tire protectant when you reinstall them. This stuff will handle salt, road tar, off-road dirt and mud — you get it dirty, it comes clean. Where was this stuff when I was racing off-road?” —johnfcon

A cap cage, because apparently you can wash your sweet ~lids~ like they’re your food container lids. This is new information to me and I could not be more pleased to pass along my learnings.


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “Works like a charm! It’s given new life to my favorite baseball caps, some of which, I’m sad to report, have suffered tragically in washing machine incidences. Never would I have considered the dishwasher, but Ballcap Buddy said yes, so I tried it. Not only did my caps get clean, but they retained their shape. It’s a perfect way to wash a baseball cap. Different styles, different colors and materials all came out the same: Looking good.” —Mcharmony

A Bissell steam mop to attack dirty grout or stained tile and vinyl floors with gusto. Get ready to burst into a moving rendition of “So Long, Farewell” to bid adieu to gross grout!


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “We have really stubborn tile and grout that attracts dirt and stains easily — this has totally cleaned that tile. We have five cats (yes, five) and it has cleaned up hair and litter. If you have cats you know all about how litter that sticks to floors outside the litter box like the plague — yeah, this cleans that up! I KNOW, CRAZY! This mop was well worth waiting all weekend for. Before this machine I was literally cleaning my floors on my hands and knees just to get a great clean. I am 100000000000000% glad I bought this steam mop. It’s way more than a steam mop — it’s a miracle worker!!!!” —melissa schloemer

Put Oxyclean in with your regular detergent when you run them through the wash or apply to upholstery like you would any other cleaner. It’s chlorine-free and color-safe.

Promising review: “I’ll let my pictures speak to how amazing this works. I had a stained mattress that I’d been covering with a mattress pad for years. As I was preparing for a move, I decided to give OxiClean a try and see if it could remove the stains that had been there for well over SEVEN YEARS. I honestly don’t even know what caused the stains, but OxiClean removed them. I honestly can’t believe the results. I wish I’d done this sooner!” —Little Greek

A wood polish and conditioner with beeswax and orange oil to hide dings and scratches, add some healthy natural luster to your dull antiques, and overall give all the wood items you own the new life they deserve!


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

A jetted tub cleaner that reveals all the built-up goop that’s been lurking in the bowels of your tub. You can’t unsee it, but you’ll be SO happy to know it’s gone.


amazon.com

Just fill your tub, add some of the cleaner, run the jets for 15 minutes, and shield your eyes from the yucky stuff that comes out!

Promising review: “Oh my gosh! You think your tub is clean and then you see what comes out with this! I followed the directions, and almost immediately this disgusting residue shot out. Then more came out as the chemical had time to circulate. So glad I got this cleaner instead of sitting in filth, especially because we just bought a new house and I thought, ‘Maybe I should try to find out if there is a special cleaner for these tubs.’ Glad I did and can know my tub is cleaned out.” —Aaron Johnson

Get it form Amazon for $16.99.

A jewelry cleaning pen to keep your diamonds shining bright like…well…a diamond. ¯_(ツ)_/¯


amazon.com

Promising review: “Don’t get me wrong — my wedding ring was gorgeous before. It did sparkle and still made me smile every day. However, after using this Diamond Dazzle Stik *oh my goodness*! After one use, my ring is absolutely breathtaking! I knew my ring got dirty now and then, simply from sweating and being outside in the elements. However, I never realized just how much dinge and schmutz marred my diamond until I cleaned it. It literally took my breath away with its fiery, dazzling brilliance!” —liltreeclimber

Get it from Amazon for $5.49.

9.

A shoe shining kit so you can get your leather shoes back in stomping and kicking shape. Or twirling and dancing shape if that’s more your speed.


amazon.com

The kit comes with two tins of black polish, a shine brush, a dauber, and a cloth.

Promising review: “KIWI is my favorite brand for shoe care items. From shining actual military boots to polishing my dress shoes, I haven’t found a better quality shoe shine. This pack is extremely useful for those who are new to polishing shoes themselves since it comes with everything a beginner really needs to learn. Remember that these are new horsehair bushes, so you may lose a few hairs the first time you use the dauber.” —Lord McFatty

10.

An ink remover for cleaning up “permanent” ink after a heart-stopping dropped-the-marker-uncapped-and-face-down incident.


amazon.com

Promising review: “Amodex took ink out of my expensive scrubs. A pen leaked in my pocket and made a thick glob of ink stain on the scrub jacket and a little on the pants. After using the Amodex and washing in cold water, there is no evidence of a stain and the fabric looks exactly how it looked before the stain. There was no damage or discoloration of the fabric. Thank you, Amodex. This product just saved me the $75 that it would have cost to replace the scrubs.” —Michelle hammer

Get it from Amazon for $10.96.

11.

A carpet cleaning solution to reverse the YEARS of dirt and grime you’ve subjected your floors to. Yes, it’s a floor and that’s what happens, but maybe just thank this cleaner and promise it you’ll start taking off your shoes from now on?


amazon.com

The solution is biodegradable, so no harm will come to your pets and kids when they inevitably decide to roll around on the carpet while it’s still wet.

Promising review: “This is a wonderful product. I have an older dog who can’t always wait until I get home from work so accidents occasionally happen. I have a Hoover Rug Scrubber and this product is very easy to use with my machine. Carpet Miracle works amazingly well on stains and odors, even those that have set for a while. I did the carpet in the ‘room of shame’ twice just to be sure, although for normal soil and odors once should be more than enough. It leaves behind a wonderful clean, fresh scent, and the carpet feels and looks wonderful. I plan on continuing to use this product to keep my carpets clean and my home smelling fresh.” —Vicky Faurot

12.

A pack of Mr. Clean Magic Erasers which, if you haven’t tried them yet, everyone needs to experience using in their life. Cleaning basically everything with one hand-held thingamajig just feels too good to be true.


amazon.com

Simply wet the eraser and scrub away at surface stains of all kinds!

Promising review: “For years I have heard about the Magic Eraser. From friends and family, even co-workers. Not sure what took me so long to try it out, but when I did, all I can say is ‘WOW!’ I had embedded stains from makeup and who knows what on the bathroom sink (which I scrubbed with baking soda, even softscrub with bleach, and the stains didn’t come all the way out). ONE TRY with the Magic Eraser and BAM! Stains gone. Then I decided to try it on the black toaster oven, where I accidentally left a loaf of bread and the plastic melted into the top. I washed it, rubbed it and used everything I could think of, but that thin layer of plastic wouldn’t budge. In comes the Magic Eraser and it came off right away. No kidding. The name says it all, because this stuff is truly magic!” —GDB

A TubShroom to catch shedding hairs and prevent drain clogs from ever even forming. Bam! Just like that, one of your biggest hygiene problems no longer exists.


amazon.com

The TubShroom is made of silicone, so it can squeeze into most standard drains and won’t scratch your surfaces.

Promising review: “This is amazing. I have long hair and recently had a baby. It’s a wonder I still have any hair based on the clumps I see falling out on a regular basis. This means the poor tub drain is getting clogged all the time, and we’re spending ridiculous amounts of time trying to clear it out. I figured if this even worked to catch half of my hair then it would be worth its salt. Holy moly. When they say it catches every hair, they aren’t kidding. We clean it off about twice A WEEK! And when they say it’s easy to clean, they are right again. A swipe with toilet paper and the hair blob comes right off. I’ve already told so many people about this product because I love it so much. Fantastic!” —sasamo

Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in five colors).

14.

A pack of Bottle Bright tablets that makes it so easy to get gunk out of forgotten tumblers, you’ll never have to resort to tossing one that’s “too far gone” ever again.


amazon.com

Just fill the vessel with warm water, drop in a tablet, let it sit for 15–30 minutes, and rinse clean!

Promising review: “I seriously can’t believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. Bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER HydroFlask to replace it. Now eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. 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

A carousel makeup organizer to take your countertop from messy and stressy to pretty as can be. Your makeup collection deserves to live in a literal castle.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I love this thing! My husband got me a new vanity for my birthday, so I ordered this to go with it. It holds all my makeup and I put everything in order of when I use it so I just spin it, use what I need, then spin it again. It makes my morning so much easier.” —MB

Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in seven colors).

16.

A red wine stain remover that proves there’s no use crying over spilled merlot (that’s a phrase, right?). Just spritz, wipe, and pour yourself a new glass.


amazon.com

Promising review: “When you have anything white in your house and you have a love for red wine THIS PRODUCT IS A MUST! We had a dinner party of about 15 people in our house so I bought five bottles just in case. Someone spilled red wine on our brand new white couch. I was so mad, but I used this stuff and it was GONE. It didn’t just take most of the red wine out — the red wine was GONE! No trace of it at all! I will buy more!” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $6.67.

A fabric shaver for when vacuuming and lint rolling just won’t cut it when you’re trying to make your furniture look SUPER clean. Shave off those little fuzzies and say hello to your “brand new” couch!


amazon.com

Promising review: “Okay, I don’t normally rave about things like this. I bought this on a whim in a last attempt to save my favorite duvet cover. The pills had gotten to the point where it was seriously uncomfortable to sleep with them getting all up in my leg space. I thought I was going to have to get a new duvet cover entirely. Along came this lil’ baby. Not only is my duvet cover basically brand new, but I have found a new hobby. I’m depilling everything. Sweatshirts, leggings, blankets, socks, anything that looks like it needs some love. It does the job quickly and leaves everything looking fresh. Hi, I’m obsessed. I can’t stop. I should send this back. I’ve started asking if my neighbors need anything depilled. I’m going to buy one of these for everyone in my life. Everyone needs to own this. Take it away from me.” —Sydney Jensen

A pet hair vacuum to give all of your fur-covered furniture a new life. The hair is pretty much the ONLY negative thing about having a furry friend, and with this trusty vacuum, it’s no longer an issue.


amazon.com

The hand vac has a 16-foot power cord and comes with two nozzles for cleaning upholstery, carpeting, and the inside of your car.

Promising review: “Holy crap! Are you skeptical when it comes to buying stuff online? ME TOO! But I have four cats and a golden retriever, so I was getting desperate! A picture is worth a thousand words — check mine out! 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! The ‘after’ picture was taken after only THREE MINUTES spent vacuuming her bed. I. Am. SOLD!” —Luka Chan

A watermark-removing cloth for getting rid of those stubborn rings with mere swipes. Have fun living your new, fun, flirty life putting glasses down to and fro without stress!


amazon.com

Promising review: “This removed the most stubborn watermark on earth! My desk had three very obvious rings from where hot mugs had been left unattended, and despite trying everything that was recommended online, nothing worked to reduce their appearance. This cloth must have some miracle oil in it because it removed the rings when nothing else would, and they haven’t come back. Be sure to really rub the cloth over the water mark (it may take some time, but it’s worth it!), and save the plastic bag that it comes in just in case you need it again.” —Trini

A stainless steel cleaner to get all of your gorgeous appliances back to the level of luster they deserve. Just keep the spray bottle handy in the kitchen for quick touch-ups whenever you want to give your kitchen a little love.


amazon.com

Promising review: “Perfect cleaner for my new Whirlpool stainless appliances. It also seems to make it a bit fingerprint-resistant as well. Since I cleaned my fridge down a month ago, I haven’t had to do it again yet. I’m sure if I had kids it’d be a little different, but this stuff is where it’s at. I’ve tried cheaper big-box store cleaners and they all take a lot of arm work.” —William Blake Fischer

A cleanser and polishing powder that will inspire you to give all of your indoor and outdoor tarnished surfaces an America’s Next Top Model–level makeover (one everyone’s happy with, not a tear-inducing pixie that looked great but was just Too Shocking).

22.

A pack of silver polish wipes to easily restore your tarnished jewelry and silverware to their original state. Not to mention you’ll seem fancy as heck when you tell your friends you “finally got around to polishing your silver.”


amazon.com

Promising review: “It is very uncommon for me to write a review but this product is amazing. My family’s silverware had not been polished in the 15 years since I married my husband. The only time I ever polished anything before it was messy and smelly and took forever. Therefore I didn’t have any interest in polishing something that we weren’t using. I decided to try these wipes because the price was reasonable. They are easy to use and do a wonderful job! The silverware looks silver! I used four wipes to polish a service of eight, and it took me about 20 minutes. I highly recommend this product!” —Kehrli

A can of Easy-Off oven cleaner because you’ve set the fire alarm off TOO many times by subjecting burnt-on food to even more heat before cleaning it off. No more excuses!


amazon.com

This product works in just *40 minutes*, but it’s safe to leave overnight for maximum effectiveness (or if you’re just feeling lazy).

Promising review: “Simply UNBELIEVABLE. Fume-free and no gloves needed, but dissolves ANYTHING cooked on! I had not cleaned my oven EVER. I simply sprayed it on, shut the door overnight, and wiped it off with paper towels. I don’t have to dread cleaning the oven ever again! You can use it for everyday spot cleaning and only have to let it sit for a couple hours for minor things. I used it on my broiler pan that would not scrub clean with even steel wool — no need to scrub ever again now! My crockpot leaked over the bowl and burned on inside of the heating chamber. I just sprayed, covered, and wiped in morning. I plan on using it to clean the grill in the spring and am sure it will make it a breeze.” —Andrew J.

Get it from Amazon for $5.97.

A ceramic stovetop cleaning kit that’s like the undo button for cooktop errors. This high-maintenance appliance doesn’t get to stress you out anymore.


amazon.com

The kit comes with the ceramic cooktop cleaner, a scraper, 10 scrubbing pads, and burnt-on grease remover.

Promising review: “We, regrettably, had not properly cleaned our glass stove top for six months. We’d wipe and clean with generic products we had, but nothing removed the deep stains. It was not properly maintained by the previous tenants either, so I wasn’t hopeful we’d get it back to its original appearance. It looked horrible. With help of the razor, this product completely transformed our stove top. It looks like it was just installed. I’m so happy and relieved. This will be a must-have item in our kitchen for years to come.” —Amazon Customer

An all-purpose car cleaner for maintaining your vehicle’s leather, vinyl, carpet, upholstery, plastic, and rubber. Go ahead and have that backseat food fight, kids. It’ll all come out.


amazon.com

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+ 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

A set of three scrubbing drill brush attachments that will remind you that WHOA, that glass wasn’t opaque when you moved in. Yeah, let’s fix that.


amazon.com

The set comes with a two-inch flat brush, a four-inch flat brush, and a round brush. Heads up that the drill is *not* included, but consider a basic Black and Decker one ($49 on Amazon) if your toolbox is in need.

Promising review: “I thought my hard water stains would never come off my shower doors, but I bought this awesome brush set, and it’s amazing! I’ve tried all the hacks — drier sheets, clean erasers, lemon, vinegar — nothing works like this brush! I used Zep shower cleaner with it! In the picture, the side on the right is the part of the door I cleaned, and I still have to clean the left side.” —Traci D.

Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in six colors and stiffness levels).

A makeup brush shampoo so you can turn into the kind of person who actually cleans their brushes. Please, just bite the bullet and do it. You and your skin will be SO happy you did.


amazon.com

Promising review: “This cleanser is great! It fully removes all makeup from the brushes without leaving them feeling beat up (I’m not the most gentle when it comes to cleaning brushes). I use a thick foundation that soaks heavily into the bristles, but this removed it all. At first I thought it was a bit thin, but after using it, a little bit goes a long way. It has a nice lather, but very nicely and easily rinses out.” —Kryssy

Get it from Amazon for $4.79.

A Clorox toilet cleaning kit that — let’s be honest — you probably should’ve gotten a long time ago. But hey, that’s OK, better late than never!


amazon.com

The kit comes with one wand, a caddy, and six disposable scrubber refills.

Promising review: “Do you ever look at your toilet brush in disgust and resentment? How is a dirty used-up brush still sitting in your throne room? You clean your bathroom, but then you put that sucker down in its place and it’s just mocking you. It’s never truly immaculate. Never knowing true cleanliness. Fear no more. Now you can shine your porcelain throne and not have to worry about a used up toilet brush mocking your clean, sparkling bathroom. Gone are the days of breathing in dirty poop particles from the reusable potty-cleaning-brush-thingy. Clorox Toilet Wand: the answer to your prayers if you want an easy, deep clean and to toss away the brush after you’re done. Fast, cheap, and easy. Just how we like to clean.” —Juliana

amazon.com, amazon.com

You can use this pressure washer on outdoor cushions, wood decks, house siding, and so many other places. You can even fill it with detergent to wash your car!

Promising review: “I love this washer. It competes with my 2200 PSI gas-powered pressure washer, which in fact I sold to keep this. But doesn’t have the noisy gas engine or the heavy weight. Easy to move around lightweight and has great power. Very quiet. I love all the attachments and the different stream types. The soap dispenser works well. I’m cleaning everything, my deck, my house, the garage doors, the concrete slab. It takes off all the dirt and mold from the old concrete stairs and sidewalk.” —Tim S.

I tried everything to remove the stains from our three toilets but nothing worked. I found this product online and immediately went to Amazon. The results blew me away. I didn’t have to scrub at all. I let it sit in the tank for several hours and the results floored me!” —Toni Huitt
