A no-scrub weekly shower cleaner you can quite literally “set and forget” to maintain its cleanliness over time — once you apply it after a shower, you just have to wait 8 to12 hours and it’ll quietly tackle the soap scum, grim, oils, mold, and mildew stains without anyone having to argue over ~whose turn~ it is to clean it.


Promising review: “We cannot BEGIN to tell you what a lifesaver this is! We have two old fiberglass tubs with vinyl shower enclosures that no matter what amount of scrubbing we have done with everything from bleach to cleanser to vinegar and baking soda would NOT come clean. After I took my shower last night, I sprayed down the tub and walls. Within minutes, all the built-up water deposits and dirt and grime began to melt away in front of my eyes. I left it on overnight, and when I got up this morning, it did not look like the same tub and shower. This product is a godsend, especially for old folks like us who have difficulty getting down on our hands and knees and scrubbing anything. More importantly, it performs as advertised. We plan on using it as part of our weekly cleanup routine, in addition to purchasing the Wet and Forget Mold and Mildew Remover for use on the vinyl siding of our house. This is truly an overnight sensation!” —Amazon Customer

A reusable microfiber Swiffer mop pad that reviewers love not only because it’s ready for action again right after a wash cycle, but because it picks up a *ton* more dirt, gunk, and debris than the disposable mops do — a necessity when you have lots of feet tracking through the front hall or kitchen. Your floors are finally gonna shine ✨.

Promising review: “I bought these for the same reasons most do — to be more environmentally friendly. I like the size of my Swiffer Sweeper, but always felt like I wasn’t getting my floors fully clean. We recently got a new apartment, and I always like to deep clean before we do any major moving. I used them dry and wet. I’ve always been disappointed with how the disposable pads from Swiffer (barely) picked up dog fur and crumbs, but as you can see in the picture it picked up so much! This was already after using a traditional broom. Then using them wet with diluted Mrs. Meyers cleaning concentrate — wow! The water was BLACK by the time I was all done with our downstairs area. They were so easy to Velcro on and off, wet or dry. Once I was all done, getting them off and doing a quick rinse wasn’t hard at all. I love that I am supporting a small family business with all the convenience of Amazon. I will definitely buy again (if I ever have to). I am so excited to use these for years to come and have a cleaner house than I ever have before!!” —Kathryn Willer

Psst — if you don’t already have one, you can get a standard Swiffer on Amazon for $9.99


A jar of internet-beloved The Pink Stuff, which tackles so many darn things that it’ll be no match for all the miscellaneous stains and gunk people leave in your house. Need to paint over a stain on the wall? Get it off with The Pink Stuff. Think you need to replace that caked-over grimy pan? Put The Pink Stuff to the test. About to hire cleaners to tackle whatever the heck is going on in your tub? 1-800-The-Pink-Stuff, baby!!,

A lot of people compare it to the Magic Eraser in paste form, so even your weirdest, most stubborn stains will meet their match.

Promising review: “I used this product for my stove because it’s one thing I dislike cleaning. I have used multiple degreaser sprays and they all are so toxic and don’t work for me. The Magic Eraser was OK but I used several at a time and I had to scrub so hard. But this product, oh my goodness, legit a miracle. It doesn’t have any type of smell. I put the paste on a cloth, clean the area then wipe it off with a damp cloth and voilà, magic!” —May

Get it from Amazon for $7.70.


A fume-free oven cleaner that’s gentle enough that you don’t need protective gloves to use it, but tough enough that it’ll erase the evidence of all your household’s weekend baking misadventures.

Promising review: “Mine just came in the mail today and I used it right away — it works fantastically! My oven is an electric, probably slightly on the older side, and has been badly stained since before I moved into my current unit. I have tried everything I could think of to get it clean prior to finding this product and nothing worked. But after doing the two-hour treatment it is almost all gone but for a few small specks here and there. I have just sprayed it again to see if those will come off too without an overnight treatment (just out of curiosity, it’s perfectly clean as it is). I would recommend this product to anyone that wants an oven cleaner that works and is easy to use.” —Lis Zupp

A bottle of wood polish your scuffed up, highly trafficked floors and liberally abused cabinets no doubt need by now — this will make ’em look so brand spanking new that you’ll wonder if it’s not actually wood polish but a time machine.

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 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. Take a look at the pictures to see the before-and-afters. 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

A power scrubber brush you can attach to a DRILL (!!), making cleaning so fun that everyone might just argue over who “gets” to clean next. This bb basically does all hard grime busting for you, whether you’re tackling rust stains, shower doors, tiles, gutters, porches, or pretty much any other caked-on stain and grime you can imagine.,

Promising review: “I’ve been eyeing these for a few months and finally caved… Man do I regret not picking them up as soon as I saw them! They work GREAT! We rent an apartment that has a 30+-year-old shower/tub. I’ve used everything from abrasive powders, gels that sit to most recently the bathroom magic erasers and nothing really got the grime out. These WORK and they work fast. Ten minutes with my handy drill and the shower has never been cleaner. I love that I don’t have to throw money out on cleaning products anymore and that I can be a little more environmentally friendly with no waste and no chemical cleaners! Just a little dish soap, baking soda and a spin of the brush. If you’re on the fence, just buy them!” —Becky Adie

A no-waste dish block to help cut down on excess dish soap waste between family members. Instead, this block will create *just* the right amount of suds that cut through residue and grease without going overboard.

No Tox Life

Psst — you can also use this to spot-treat laundry, stains on the carpet, and take labels off jars!

No Tox Life is a mother/daughter-owned, Texas-based Etsy shop established in 2015 that specializes in vegan, bath, body, and home care.

Promising review: “So happy to find the shipping material was also plastic free. This is my first dish bar that I’ve tried and I’m really pleased! I cut it up into four so I don’t have the whole block out (cut with a serrated knife when it’s fully dry). I use it with a bristle brush and it washes nicely! Sufficient suds and cuts grease, too. I am sold and will fully switch from liquid dish soap to this.” —MM

A foaming garbage disposal cleaner you can plop into your sink, run a little water on, and let its blue magic fizz its way up to the top while clearing out all the gunk from everyone’s culinary projects all in one go.


Promising review: “These are amazing! I was skeptical at first but I followed the directions (which are super easy) and was grossed out and satisfied at the same time to see the gunk that was removed. You put the entire packet down your disposal (I read that twice too) and magic happens in under two minutes! That is what I call powerful and successful cleaning! The scent is super clean and light with a hint of lemon. These will definitely be a cleaning staple for me.” —KPITT

A broom for pet and human hair that can work on any type of floor, but is specifically designed to pull it up from the carpet faster and deeper than even a lot of vacuums can reach. If you have a lot of people in your household who shed, BOY HOWDY is this thing gonna change your life.

Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

Personally, I shed like nobody’s business!!! My hair gets so ingrained in the carpet that a vacuum truly does nothing for it, so I often was just unrooting clumps of hair from the floor with my hands (sorry for the visual). I bought this broom and it immediately started pulling it up GOBS of hair. My carpet, like, genuinely changed color (turns out the pink was supposed to be much pinker, whoops). Anyway, do with that semi-horrifying information what you will — you can read my full review of the pet hair broom for more deets.

Promising review: “I have two dogs — a terrier mix and a short-hair dachshund mix. I have a navy woven couch that LOVES my dachshund’s fur. I have tried pretty much everything to get the fur out — traditional lint roller, those blue fuzzy lint rollers, special vacuum attachments, etc. The terrier’s fur comes out great with all of those options. The dachshund’s fur, much like the dachshund herself, remains stubbornly on my couch. I got this product as the new ‘let’s see if it works’ item of the month with low expectations. THE FUR ACTUALLY CAME OUT, GUYS. It acts like a broom for my couch — sweeping the fur (with some elbow grease) basically onto the floor where I vacuum it up! Give this a try if my story sounds pretty similar to yours!” —JT

A screen-cleaning kit to clear up all the grime on your television, which despite your best efforts, is always quite prone to sticky, excitable fingerprints from Paw Patrol stans. A few healthy swipes of this and suddenly the screen will be so clear again it’ll feel like seeing another dimension.,

This also works on computer monitors, laptops, phones, tablets, and e-readers. Each kit comes with a spray bottle and a streak-free microfiber cloth.

Promising review: “Living in the Midwest, dust in the house can be a bit much after leaving the windows open for a while. I was looking for a product dedicated to screens rather then using basic Windex like I have been. It truly does work wonders on all the products in my home. From the living room TV to the laptop screens, it’s left me extremely impressed on how well it works! The packaging feels great. Microfiber cloth that is included feels premium, very confidence inspiring. I have no concerns of scratching with how high quality the cloth feels. Very little to no scent, which is my preference. What I’ve found works best is spraying the product directly on the glass or screen, wiping with one side of the cloth, and then buff with another side to polish it out. Leaves no streaks at all!” —Stephon Dean

Get it from Amazon for $19.97.


A TubShroom, a little gizmo you can stick in the shower drain to catch everyone’s hair before it clogs up the pipes and becomes a living nightmare. The hair coils around it to make it even easier to remove, making it both handy *and* semi-horrifying!

Promising review: “I hardly ever write reviews but this thing is so amazing I had to share. With every shower I take, I shed a TON of hair and (as you can see from the picture) stick it to the wall so that no hair goes down my drain. I thought this method was working out well but my drain was continuing to stop up. I figured it must be my sister’s fault since I was so good about not letting any hairs go down the drain, but I went ahead ordered the TubShroom after seeing advertisements on Facebook. I got this thing and after only two showers, it collected a crap-ton of my hair that I didn’t catch. It really is so easy to install and wipe away the hair, exactly like the videos. Awesome invention and I’m super happy with this purchase!” —Megan K.

Get it from Amazon for $12.99.


Or if it’s entirely too late for that, drain snake you can funnel into your shower or sink drain that honestly works a little *too* well at unclogging hair, pulling it up in one (semi-horrifying) go.


Promising review: I have tried everything I could think of to unclog my tub drain, all the nasty chemicals, plunging, auger, and then I came across these plastic strips with evil teeth LOL. They arrived today, didn’t come with instructions, not that you really need any. I worked and worked and pulled out the horrific, nasty, slimy hair clog. It even pulled out a plastic razor cap (thank you, teenage daughters). Mind you, that clog didn’t come out in one full piece (gag), but in many pieces at first, the appetizers if you will. Finally, the main course reared its ugly head. Gross. These things work and work well. A little elbow grease and willpower and voilà. My tub drain completely drains now. I couldn’t be happier!” —GaPeach

A reusable Swiffer duster head to help get ahead of any allergy-prone family member’s symptom by preventing dust buildup in your home. Bonus: This is made with a nonfraying fleece fabric built to pick up dust more effectively and at a broader range than the OG version, thanks to the static it naturally generates.

TS Designs/Etsy

TS Designs is a Michigan-based Etsy shop established in 2016 that specializes in home products and country-, rustic-, and vintage-styled gifts and decor.

Psst — the seller notes that this works best with Swiffers with the yellow handle, but also is compatible with the blue handle. You should avoid using fabric softener when washing this duster so it won’t lose its static cling.

Promising review: “Great washable duster replacement tops. They vacuum off and wash up easily, and they grab dust and cobwebs every bit as well as the disposable ones I was using. Considering it means putting a bit less into landfills and also saving money in the long run, I only wish I had bought these years ago, sincerely. Also they shipped very promptly and arrived sooner than expected, so that was a pleasant surprise. Thanks!” —otherlings

Get it from TS Designs on Etsy for $5 (available in 10 colors).


A mold and mildew removal gel you can leave on the offending spots for six hours, then wipe away like nothing nefarious ever grew there in the first place — a godsend with a house full of busy people who might not clean up wet spots *quite* as thoroughly as they thought they did on their way out of the bathroom or kitchen.


Promising review: “You guys. I’m embarrassed to even tell you this. But the grout around our tub was DISGUSTING. It was never caulked right and it got gross very quickly. I would scrub. The cleaning lady would scrub. It would get worse. Well, I was scrolling through FB as you do and came across one of those BuzzFeed lists: 20 cleaning products under $20 from Amazon you cannot live without…or some such nonsense. I am a sucker for those damn lists. But this stuff made me curious. I don’t know why it doesn’t have 10,000 good reviews. Seriously. All I did was squeeze it on and walk away. I let it sit overnight. Check this out. Buy it. Like today.” —KarynB

A magnetic chore chart so you can all stay on top of all the household tasks that need taking care of by divvying it up each week in advance, guaranteeing nobody’s stuck on trash duty every week for the rest of their lives.

Promising review: “This household task list is exactly what I needed. I added the tasks as decals. It’s easy to use and clean. It comes with pens and an eraser. It’s a perfect little set to get started with. The magnet makes it so nice to just attach it to the fridge and it’s always there so you’re always reminded to do the tasks.” —Nola

Plus a pumice stone that will make the inside of all your toilets look brand spanking new, even if the rings have already thwarted everyone’s efforts with the toilet brush.

Promising review: “Awesome for cleaning toilets!! Buy this now if you have hard water stains!! We tried everything on toilets when we bought a house … We were about to replace toilets and tried this. They look almost new now!! Def prefer the ones with a handle, especially when using on toilets!” —Kindle Customer

Humble Suds/Etsy

Humble Suds is a Colorado-based, woman-owned small business established in 2014 that specializes in plant-based cleaning products.

Promising review: “These are wonderful! I’ve used other all purpose cleaner concentrates, but they smelled terrible and didn’t do much in terms of cleaning. These though! They smell great and definitely help me around the house. I bought one of each scent and I can’t wait to try them all.” —Megan Henderson

A glass and ceramic cookware cleanup kit that comes with heavy-duty scrubber, a razor blade, *and* a cleaner specifically designed to get at those caked-on stains, so you can knock it all off in a few minutes without resenting whichever roommate or fam member left it that way in the first place.

Promising review: “We bought our cooktop five months ago and it started developing really bad marks and stains. I tried everything to get it off, including baking soda, different detergents, etc. Really thought it was hopeless. We even tried to return our cooktop but because we couldn’t we decided to give it one last try. Using the two tools that come with this cleaner we got 100% of the impossible stains off. I could not recommend this product more!!” —luckyrabbit

Get it from Amazon for $11.29.


Plus a bottle of Bar Keepers Friend soft cleansing liquid and scouring cloth to quickly take care of even long-term, caked-on stains on everything from steel appliances to pans to stove tops to sinks — *without* scratching surfaces.

Promising review: “I used the product on my stainless-steel gas range and it worked amazingly!!!! I have tried so many other things and it was so hard getting the stains from the water (overflow of potatoes and pasta) and oil spills that would burn on to the range off. For a while thought this would be permanent. It bothered me so much to have a clean kitchen and my range would be this way. I let it sit on my range for about 15 minutes because the stains were there for so long then I scrubbed it with the scrub cloth that was provided and you can obviously see the results in my picture. My stove looks as it did when we first moved in our new home. Definitely purchase this, you won’t be disappointed ☺️” —Ci B.

A red wine stain–removing spray to pick up both old and new red wine stains from carpets, couches, towels, and fabrics, so now you can enjoy your wine-and-cheese nights as a group with some peace of mind.

Promising review: “This product blew my mind. We had tried everything to get rid of this wine stain including white wine and pouring salt all over it. After spraying it with Wine Away, it completely disappeared in less than five seconds — and it smells like oranges! It also worked when I spilled coffee on the carpet a few days later.” —Mattan Griffel

Get it from Amazon for $9.78.


A set of washing machine–cleaning tablets that’ll tackle that weird mold + mildew smell in one cycle — *especially* handy for larger households with family members whose clothes get sweaty or grimy from sports, work, or hobbies.


Promising review: My older model Whirlpool washing machine had been smelling very bad for about two months. We tried everything, white vinegar, bleach, etc, it would stay fresh smelling for two days then back to the bad moldy smell. I read this product works so I ordered it. Used one tablet and the smell is gone!!! It has been three weeks now and it just smells fresh, no strong perfume odor either! Buy this product you will not regret it!!!” —A.C.

A watermark remover cloth to easily remove marks left by water, alcohol, and heat whenever any of you or your guests accidentally sidestep the coasters on game night.

Psst — this can also be used to polish metal and chrome.

Promising review: “I must admit I ordered this as a last hope. I had a mark on my bedside table that I tried various things to remove, but was totally unsuccessful. I tried this today, and there is NO sign of the mark. It is like brand new again. I was thrilled with the result and highly recommend it to anyone, but would suggest you try it first to save yourself grief! It is inexpensive in the first place, but to know I can reuse it if necessary on another mark (hopefully that doesn’t occur, but life happens) makes it an even better value.” —Kritik

A set of fast-acting Keurig cleaner pods you can simply put through a cycle on the machine to get rid of all the crusted on grinds and residue that are *definitely* affecting the taste of everyone’s coffee, even if you haven’t noticed over time. This is especially handy for households with non–coffee drinkers in them — if any of you use the Keurig for tea or cocoa and are tired of it tasting like the last person’s coffee, get yourself some of these!

Promising review: “Love, love, love this. Have used other products but they were not only complicated to use but did not do a great job. This one really works well and is very simple to use! I have used the same metal mug for my morning coffee for about three years now and it got really stained. I used this product one time and the stains were removed. The coffee maker looks like new again. Soooo happy! Going to buy some for my son and will rebuy this for sure! The price is most reasonable also. Win-win.” —pennywrites

An “Angry Mama” microwave cleaner that uses vinegar and water to blow hot steam into your microwave oven and loosen up all the old food and stains that, oops!! nobody took responsibility for!! in a mere seven minutes.

Promising review: “This product is so amazing, I’m going to get one for all of my children. I am a teacher, and I let my students use my microwave. Usually it takes me half an hour of scrubbing after 31 students have made popcorn and heated up lunches. This time I used the product, and I literally spent less than one minute just wiping down the microwave!!! I will now keep one in my classroom, and one at my home. A miracle product that actually does what it says, remarkable!!!” —Desiree Barlow

A handy fridge deodorizer to finally get rid of that slightly ~off~ smell your fridge tends to rock whenever too many people have leftovers in there at the same time.


This deodorizer lasts up to six months, and also helps keep produce fresher for longer. The company claims it’s six times more effective than baking soda — a ton of reviewers mentioned they’d tried the baking soda method and failed, but that this worked like a charm!

Promising review: “I’ve been trying to get this old smell out of my fridge for years. I’d tried everything, cleaning the whole fridge with bleach, the dish of vanilla, baking soda, etc. I put these in my fridge and freezer and poof! The smell was gone! Highly recommend! 10/10 good job!” —adam baker

These are super absorbent, designed with a cross-hatch pattern for easier scrubbing, and each one of them can replace over a DOZEN paper towel rolls. The Brawny paper towel man is shaking.


Promising review: “I originally picked these up to use in lieu of nasty, nasty dishrags that invoke my inner THIS IS NOT CLEAN demon. Since then, I have used them for everything from cleaning the kitchen to wiping up spills. After use, just toss in the wash and they are ready to go again. They are the perfect size and do an excellent job on every task to which I have applied them. They come in a variety of fun prints and I have yet to wear one out. Paper towel usage has taken a real nosedive, which is a good thing given its relative scarcity at present.” —sandra simpson-kraft

A bottle of Goo Gone for banishing all those mysteriously sticky, tough-to-scrub stains that seem to follow kids around wherever they go. This also works wonders on toothpaste, shampoo residue, and the adhesive left on your windows or cars from sticker decals.

Promising review: “I had some decals on the front door of my business that had been there for over seven years that I wanted to remove. When I tried to pull them off, all the adhesive stayed on the window. It smelled awful. I tried everything to get it off the window: vinegar, sponges, Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, and finally pan scrubbers. I realized I was risking damage to the window, but the adhesive would still there. A client who saw what I was trying to do about the time, recommended Goo Gone. I let my arm rest for the two days it took for Amazon to deliver the Goo Gone. I spread it on with a paper towel and let it sit for a short period. Then I took a cleaning rag and carefully removed the rest of the residue. Easy! Next day I removed another decal. I applied the Goo Gone to the thick adhesive residue, and let it sit. Immediately the odor stopped. Huge benefit! Then as I wiped it off, the residue fell like sticky little worms dropping to the ground. A little more cleanup of the floor, and I was done. Now I can feel confident that the new decals will come off just as easy when I need to change them, as long as I have my Goo Gone.” —Andy

A flexible silicone scrap collector that will make cleanup during large family meal preps a total breeze — you can use this for general trash to avoid going back and forth to the main one, or use this to collect scraps before dumping it into the compost bin.


Promising review: “So useful! I use mine more as a small trash collector. I have mine next to the stove for eggshells and anything else I may want to toss quickly. Also, I line it with a plastic produce bag so that it doesn’t get grimy and dirty. Not only this, but using this as a small trash can, I end up using my large kitchen trash bag as a bin for my smaller produce-bag-wrapped trash bags (and/or trash items that don’t have a smell). This means my large trash can usually doesn’t smell bad, since it’s only ever full of smaller wrapped trash bags. Maybe it seems a little strange, but for someone who usually only cooks for one, I don’t like my large trash can to be partially full and already smell like it needs to be taken out.” —Shaz

Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in two styles).


A Scotchgard fabric shield for your furniture and pillows so they’re no match for all the mishaps when everyone’s enjoying some beverages during movie night on the couch.


Promising review: “I got this for my pillows. Having a 4- and 7-year-old who are constantly making messes in the living room, I was a bit fed up with replacing my pillows due to stains. The spraying was easy and quick, then I left them outside to air out. Today I noticed a big splatter of dried-up ketchup on the pillow. I took a wet paper towel and rubbed off the stain. It came off completely! Nothing seeped through the fabric. I just wish I used this sooner!” —Lidia

Get a 14-oz can from Amazon for $9.98.


A set of heavy-duty wipes that are most definitely not here to play — they’re basically the paper towel version of The Rock, and can lift up stains on anything from grease to permanent marker to nail polish. Bonus: They’re tough on stains, but the aloe vera in them makes them super gentle on skin!


Promising review: “This stuff really is magical! When we moved into our house, the previous owners did a horrible job of cleaning the stainless-steel appliances. There were permanent run marks going down the front that I could not remove…and I tried EVERYTHING. I should note that I’m not actually positive that these appliances are true stainless steel or just manufactured to look like that. I wanted to cry tears of joy after wiping down the dishwasher because I had been looking at those awful run marks for three years and they were finally gone! The whole tub is worth it for that appliance alone. As of now, I’ve only used it in the kitchen, but I plan on using it the next time I clean out my car, too. If it looks half as good as I think it will, I’ll be a customer for life!” —MayBae

A set of chemical-free, naturally activated charcoal and bamboo air freshening bags you can use to eliminate odors in your home instead of getting wasteful plug-ins every month or using sprays.


To keep these super effective, you should leave the bags out in the sun for an hour or two every month, which helps remove the absorbed odors and moistures to activate so they can keep absorbing up more!

Promising review: “These work! Rooms smell fresher. I have asthma and multiple allergies, so air fresheners are toxic for me. Placed one of these in the bathroom, near the cat box, in the closet, and in the kitchen. It took a few days, but all damp and pet odors are gone! And they’re these cute little discreet, neutral bags that aren’t covered with logos or odd designs. They fit in anywhere. Highly recommend!” —Ellemphs
