1.

A garbage disposal cleanser that’ll foam up to remove odor and built-up residue from what is arguably the grossest place in your entire kitchen.


amazon.com

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

2.

A scratch-free scraper tool, because your nails are tired of being used to remove sticky things off bottles, counters, and more.


amazon.com, Amazon

You can use this to scrape off candle wax from tables, dried food from countertops, adhesive stickers off new products, soap build-up in bathrooms, etc!

Promising review: “The perfect handy tool for getting into tight places. It’s firm enough for multiple uses but it doesn’t scratch or mar surfaces. I should have gotten the five-pack, I have so many uses for these things. I think the best use yet was cleaning the sliding door track, I finally could get into the corners to get the grunge out. A great invention.” —MissPicky

3.

A bag of Bottle Bright tablets that’ll clean your bottles, plastic containers, mugs, and everything else, with no scrubbing required. We love an all-natural, no-hassle way to clean.


amazon.com

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

Amazon

These work on almost any surface: leather, fabric, furniture, hardwood, pans, metal, etc.

Promising review: “These are awesome! The size of the container is large and so was the quantity I received. The wipes are huge and tough, great for scrubbing! I cleaned my whole house with these and they removed stains I haven’t been able to get out for a while. I also tried them on my walls and they did not remove the paint. Also, they smell fantastic: no chemical smell whatsoever. These are a great deal on Amazon, and I will be purchasing them again!” —Suze

A bottle of Finish booster powder to bring certain residue-covered dishes back to life with one rinse cycle.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I could not get my flatware to come out clean from the dishwasher and I wondered if it was the hard water. I was using up to three soap blocks in each load with only partial improvement. I used this the first time and voilà! Perfectly clean flatware for the first time. I LOVE this!” —Susan A

Get it from Amazon for $5.97 (available in two sizes).

6.

A bottle of Feed-N-Wax wood polish you woodn’t believe took just minutes to turn this piece of furniture brand-new again! In addition to polishing, it adds a protective layer and helps prevent the wood from drying out or fading again.


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 who had jumped up and scratched places, and 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 blemishes. 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. We’re so glad we found this product.” —kris

A disposable toilet-cleaning kit that’ll clean the crap outta your toilet bowl. Literally.


amazon.com

It includes a wand, storage caddy, and six refill sponges you can just throw out after one use. AMEN.

Promising review: “Nothing could be easier than this. Just swish and toss! The soft squishy sponge gets under the rim easily, unlike a stiff brush. The best part, of course, is that you dispose of the sponge after just one use. No more keeping that dirty brush under the bathroom sink! This system is a keeper and I bought one for every bathroom in my house.” —carol

Get this kit from Amazon for $8.88.

8.

A bottle of makeup brush shampoo so your favorite tools can look the way they did when you *first* brought them home — without any harsh ingredients.


amazon.com

Promising review: “Well, I can happily say that this cleaner does a bang-up job! My brushes were saturated with old color, to the point that I thought I might need to spring for a new set. Aside from just looking bad, though, all that old color was probably affecting pigment and application any time I used them. A little of this cleaner, a handful of seconds working it in and rinsing, and my brushes look practically as good as the day I bought them! Saved me a ton of money in new brushes, and it didn’t take away from my being-lazy time!” —ysar

Get it from Amazon for $4.99 (available in cleansing cloths).

9.

A Mr. Clean Magic Eraser that’ll legit magically erase the weird dark stains that have been silently expanding on your tub for months — no thanks!


amazon.com

These melamine eraser sponges are super tough on stains but won’t damage the surface underneath said stain.

Promising review: “I never thought I’d be able to get the weird pink soap stains out of my tub. Picture someone scrubbing with cleaning products until their arms were sore, to no avail. But this worked with no effort! It’s unbelievable. Please never let this go off the market!” —king

Get two packs of four from Amazon for $9.88.


amazon.com

It fights well against rust stains, tarnish, mineral deposits, soap scum, and indoor or outdoor grime. It works on stainless steel, brass, bronze, copper alloys, aluminum, ceramic, porcelain, glass, and corian.

Promising review: “I was so bummed when I scratched up my pretty white sink with pots and pans. I thought I’d need to have it replaced or try to sand it and refinish it somehow, but I bought this stuff as a last ditch effort to fix it myself. It takes some elbow grease to make them go away, the scratches don’t just wipe off, but if you scrub at them for a few minutes they melt away pretty quickly. After two rounds my sink looks nearly brand new again!” —Dan Borden

A roll of machine washable reusable bamboo towels, because little costs like these add up — especially if you’re guilty of ripping off multiple sheets at a time for each meal, cleanup, etc. These replace up to *six months* of paper towels because of how efficient they are.


Amazon

Promising review: “These soft bamboo clothes are reusable and very durable. I have used the in the kitchen and my husband has used them for cleaning up much messier cleanups. They are perfect for many purposes and hold up well. Plus, they’re washable and reusable, very eco-friendly.”—AC

A pumice toilet-cleaner that’ll rid your porcelain throne of calcium and lime stains right before your eyes.


amazon.com

FYI: The stone material is specially made to avoid scratching. Plus, the heavy-duty plastic handle protects your hands while you clean!

Promising review: “I’m so embarrassed to show how disgusting my toilets have been, but it’s worth it for me to help anyone who has suffered as I have. We built our house and have lived in it 33 years. We dug a well and the water was beautiful, until air hit it. The copper, iron, and lime are all so high the chart doesn’t even go that high. We have spent thousands on a huge filter that filters all the water coming into the house from the well. My toilets have been disgusting to me, though clean (as clean as I can get them). This pumice stone — HOLY MOLY — my toilets are clean!!!!! I am totally amazed. It took about 30 minutes on each one. The stains are gone. THEY ARE GONE!!!!!!” —Nance

Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

13.

Promising review: “If I could give this 10 stars I would!!! I’m a little of a fanatic when it comes to keeping my jewelry clean, especially my wedding set. I tried this product on my diamonds, Swarovski crystals, and Brighton jewelry and the results are nothing less than amazing!!! This restored one of my Swarovski rings that I have not worn in years due to the cloudy color to a sparkling brilliance just like the first day I bought it!! I cannot recommend this product enough!!! I just ordered additional wands so I don’t run out!!! Home run Amazon!” —Kristina B.

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.” —william

Or a grout pen to transform your (too far gone) bathroom tile so it looks brand new! Just remember to color inside the lines.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I was pleasantly surprised by how far these went. I did the entire floor of my large master bathroom plus a little of the shower with one pen. It is pretty forgiving and you have quite a bit of working time before it dries completely. This was not a quick task, but it went faster than I thought it would. I was worried the white would look too bright, but it just makes everything look so much cleaner. Very happy with this product!” —Jen
