A reusable pumice stone to quickly have your toilets, sinks, and tubs looking like new — no unsightly rings in sight.


Promising review: “I’ve tried everything to get rid of those pesky, stubborn rings that so plague my toilet bowl. Sprays, gels, baking soda and vinegar, Magic Erasers, vigorous scrubbing, etc…all to no avail. This is the only thing I’ve tried that completely lifts the stains and leaves a sparkling white bowl. Sure, you have to use a touch of elbow grease, but you DON’T have to scrub for eons…it works fast. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m looking forward to cleaning the other toilets tomorrow. On a Friday night. God help me.” —Goo Goo

Get it from Amazon for $11.43.


An Angry Mama microwave cleaner that, when filled with vinegar and water and popped in the microwave, will get so mad she’ll have to blow off some steam and get your microwave squeaky clean in the process.


Promising review: “This is one of the most amazing things I have ever bought. Easy to use and I got a sparkling clean microwave…and started off with one I was ready to replace because it was so grungy and smelled.” —Wayne Spurrier

Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in different colors and packs of one or two).


A streak-free glass cleaner so you can actually see yourself in the bathroom mirror instead of peering at a bunch of foggy streaks and something that may or may not be your face.


Promising review: “It’s not as if my local grocery is lacking in glass cleaners, but there aren’t any that work as well as this. I tried it once when it was on sale and now I’m hooked. Most glass cleaners just don’t work if there’s a greasy film of any kind on the glass; this one does. It works very well with just paper towels, but if you finish off with a slightly damp microfiber cloth you will be assured of truly sparkling glass.” —Jeddy 3

Get it from Amazon for $3.57 (available in larger quantities).


A dishwasher cleaner because (to my shock and horror) you actually have to clean the thing that cleans your dishes. Fortunately, this makes it as simple as…well…running the dishwasher.


Promising review: “This stuff is amazing! I just bought a house and the dishwasher was in terrible shape, I figured I’d give this a try until I could afford to buy a new appliance. The inside after one cycle is sparkling!” —Jen Tab

Get it from Amazon for $10.37.


A pack of bottle-cleaning tablets to remove stubborn stains from the walls of metal tumblers and impossible-to-clean water bottles with NO scrubbing required!


Promising review: “There are products that make claims that they can’t live up to. This is not one of them! These are amazing. I had two coffee flasks that were irretrievably coated with coffee and tea residue. I had tried everything possible to get the buildup off. I saw an article about these and decided to give them a try. I left the flasks for about 30 minutes and when I returned they were both sparkling clean save for a tiny area on the bottom of the worst one that didn’t completely come off. I am sure if I used another tablet it would be gone. I poured the liquid from the flasks over the tops of both of them before I rinsed them and it even got the tops clean. I will definitely use these regularly. They do a fabulous job and make my coffee flasks look brand new.” —Amazon Customer

A lemon-scented cleaning gel that oh so satisfyingly lifts dust and crumbs from your keyboard — because we all know you eat lunch (and spill!) while working, and all those food bits end up under your keys.


A pack of cleaning K-Cups because, unless you really have your life together, the inside of your Keurig is likely coated with grinds and residue from old brews. Not only is this bad for your machine, but it can also taint the flavor of your coffee!

Promising review:Sparkling clean. Does a great job cleaning the system.” —Vince Mento

A deep clean brush set so you can retire that old, feeble toothbrush and get at grout and tight corners with non-slip grip handles and heavy-duty nylon scrubbing bristles.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “These are magical! I’ve tried toothbrushes, sponges, rags, scrubbies, and everything to clean my nasty bathtub grout and these brushes worked better than all of them combined. I have arthritis and these are easy to grip and use for the duration of cleaning. They’re very effective at lifting up the mold and mildew, as well as cleaning the soap scum and hard water lines. I used the littlest brush to clean around the fixtures on my bathroom sink and now it’s sparkling. I’m so happy with these!” —BrooklynBeaches

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


A plant-based stainless steel cleaner that’ll get rid of all the streaks, smudges, and grubby fingerprints that are making your appliances look not as Architectural Digest-worthy as you’d hoped.


It also comes with a microfiber cleaning cloth!

Promising review: “I bought my first bottle of Therapy and I love it! I had been using a pad product that created a buildup on my SS appliances. I was a little nervous about what would happen when I used Therapy over it. To my surprise and delight, it cleaned through the old buildup and left my appliances sparkling! Nice bonus that the microfiber cloth comes with it.” —SpicyBeach

Get it from Amazon for $16.95.


A jewelry cleaning pen to make all your gems (real or not) sparkle so bright even your Claire’s ring from middle school will turn heads.


Promising review: “I’ve worn my engagement ring daily for just shy of five years. During that time, I’ve had it professionally cleaned when I get the prongs checked (annually) and I’ve used an ultrasonic cleaning device and a soft-bristle makeup brush with Dawn dish soap to clean my ring. None of those methods restored its original sparkle, but they helped. I figured that if even a professional cleaning couldn’t get rid of all the dust and grime in the setting around the stone, nothing really could. Enter the Diamond Dazzle stick. I spent about three minutes using this product on my ring the day my pen arrived, and I was stunned by the results. My ring sparkles like the day I received it. The brush allows you to get way under your stone and in the teeny tiny crevices around the setting that harbor dirt and dust, which mutes the light going into and coming out of your ring. I can’t believe how effective this little pen is.” —Buffalo Mama

Get it from Amazon for $6.39.


A pack of eco-friendly dishwasher detergent pods so you can skip the annoying pre-clean and stick your plates and bowls right in the dishwasher with the confidence that they’ll actually come out clean. The compostable packaging and carbon neutral shipping is just a happy bonus.


Dropps is a Philidelphia-based biz founded by Jonathan Propper that produces powerful cleaning pods and solutions locally in the United States with eco-responsible packaging and transparent ingredients lists.

Promising review: “I bought this product because of someone else’s review who thought their dishwasher was just bad quality and then they tried these pods. I have three teenagers who think throwing things in the dishwasher with stuck-on food and half-eaten meals is normal. It was torturous. They haven’t changed but I tried these pods. Honestly, it is a pleasure unpacking the dishwasher now. I am beyond shocked at how sparkling clean everything is. Squeaky clean! So happy with this product. Would recommend strongly.” —JYV main account

Get a pack of 25 from Amazon for $19.99 or a pack of 64 from Dropps for $25 (available in three sizes and two scents).


A heavy-duty steam cleaner because something as simple as really hot water is surprisingly effective at cleaning all sorts of things, from carpets to comforters. This one comes with 18 attachments so you have the right mop, squeegee, or scrub necessary to get the job done.


This set includes the steam cleaner and carrying handle, two 19-inch extension wands, a 12-inch by 6-inch mop head, a triangle brush, a brass utility brush, five nylon utility brushes, two scrub and microfiber pads, a steam jet nozzle, an 8.5-inch squeegee, a water funnel, and a measuring cup.

Promising review: “I’ve had this steamer for a few years now. I have to say that it is a great little machine. It works wonders on a floor. It cleans my ceramic tile kitchen floor in no time. Even around the stove. It makes short work at removing dried-on food drips and splattered oil from the floor. It works great on hardwood floors too. Because there really isn’t any water per se, it cleans wood floors without having to worry about getting them wet. The floor dries almost immediately. I use the squeegee attachment to clean my windows. It leaves them crystal clean without any streaks. Use this steamer with microfiber cloths to save a ton of money on cleaning supplies. It’s great to get anything sterilized and sparkling clean with only water. It runs for about 45 minutes on a single fill. I even used the squeegee to help remove wallpaper. It works great on chrome rims and will make your faucets look like new. You’ll find yourself reaching for this every time you need to clean something. Chemical-free cleaning. It’s amazing how clean things get with only water.” —Connie G.

Get it from Amazon for $131.45.


An industrial-strength concentrated vinegar cleaner that dilutes down to nine gallons worth of powerful, all-purpose cleaning solution to tackle indoor and outdoor projects alike.


Promising review: “OMG, I can’t begin to list the many uses this product has, but for me, it’s first and foremost a great bathroom/toilet cleaner. Since we have a septic, we can’t use any commercial cleaners to clean our toilet, but we use this combined with a shot of baking soda and BAM, sparkling clean! It’s non-toxic to our animals and to us. I use it (diluted) in a kitchen spray bottle to clean veggies and fruits. It’s a great bug killer too (who knew?) Thank you for making such a great product for such a fair price!” —D.Jones

Get it from Amazon for $21.99.


A microfiber mop cleaning system with a length-adjustable handle, pivoting head, and a bucket with a built-in, foot pedal-powered wringer so mopping the floors no longer has to be a hunched-over, back-breaking event.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I love how easy this mop and pail are to use. I have been using the wet Swiffer mop set for several years and it is expensive and doesn’t really clean well unless I mop my kitchen three times. I used water and 1/4 cup of Murphy Oil wood floor cleaner to mop up my laminated floor and tile floor and the floors were sparkling clean. The mop wrings out very easily and dries well too.” —Marci

Get it from Amazon for $29.98.


A TikTok-famous pink cleaning paste to tackle everything from burnt-on food to scuff marks without endless, abrasive scrubbing that might end up doing more harm than good to the surface underneath.


It’s made up of cleaning beads suspended in a gel, so it’ll grind away at tough stains without damaging the surface beneath. It’s suitable for use on most hard surfaces like ceramic tiles, barbecues, pots, pans, and more!

Promising review: “Works AMAZING. Definitely worth the money. Won’t use anything else for the hard-to-remove stuff. Made my stovetop sparkle with very minimal scrubbing.” —Maressalynn

Get it from Amazon for $9.70.


A hard-water stain remover that’ll take care of the questionable film making your shower glass look permanently foggy. Side effects might include running into your nearly invisible shower door — it’ll be that clean.


It also works on a wide range of surfaces like stainless steel, brass aluminum, hard vinyl, chrome, and more.

Promising review: “I had this in my ‘save’ list for a while because I was hesitant to order a product at this price if it didn’t work. I am very happy I ordered it. We have hard water and the glass shower doors could not be fully cleaned at the bottom, but this product made the glass sparkling clean. There was no hard scrubbing either. It also cleaned water marks off the granite shelf in the shower. A nice extra is the smell of the product is nice and minty.” —Steven Draper

Get it from Amazon for $22.97.


A pack of biodegradable foaming drain cleaning tablets to take care of all the out-of-sight grime clogging (and stinking) up your garbage disposal.


Promising review: “I’ve lost some of my sense of smell, so I am always concerned whether there are odors in the house. I use this in the disposal every couple weeks and it seems to freshen the drain area. It bubbles up into the other half of my double sink as well, leaving it sparkling clean.” —easyreader

Get a four-pack from Amazon for $4.10.


A pack of washing machine tablets so you can have complete confidence that the thing that cleans your clothes is actually clean — with no scrubbing required! Just pop a tablet inside your empty washer and run through a cycle like normal for a shiny, deodorized washer drum.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I never bother to go back and write reviews, but I had to for this product. My washing machine was funky and that’s the nicest description I can come up with. I popped one of these tablets in and set the wash to hot as directed. When it was done, like other reviewers, two different earrings that I’ve been missing, magically appeared in the washer. It was as though they had been previously stuck somewhere and freed during the cleaning. I ran the washer again just because the tablet wasn’t fully dissolved after the first wash. Once done, the inside of my washer was sparkling and has not smelled funny since. This product is seriously amazing.” —A. Forsythe

Get a pack of six from Amazon for $11.98.


A microfiber window blind cleaner with three blades so you can clean the tops and bottoms of two blinds at once, which seems a lot more effective than the current strategy of quickly running a regular feather duster against the blinds and calling it a day.

Amazon, amazon.com

This set includes four microfiber dusters and a tiered plastic base.

Promising review: “I read the reviews on this product and thought to myself, it cannot be this good, but it was better. You will have to spray something on the blinds to soften up caked-on dirt, but believe me, it wipes away really easy. The blind in my kitchen was the worst and it is sparkling now. They also put a nice thank you note inside of the product bag and that is very thoughtful. It makes a consumer feel like they are appreciated for purchasing this item. I would highly recommend this product. For the price, I don’t think there is anything better and very easy to use. I also like to support small businesses. Every family needs a great income.” —Ryan Donaldson

A bottle of Goo Gone because no one should be subjected to scraping a sticky label off of the bottom of their brand-new mug. My heart and fingernails simply can’t take it!


Goo Gone is safe on hard surfaces, carpet, and fabric! And it’s not just for adhesive labels, but works as a scuff eraser, window sill cleaner, tar cleaner, crayon eraser, and glue remover (aka anything sticky).

Promising review: “Cleaning the labels off of 100 wine bottles and just couldn’t get the last of that sticky off! Goo Gone was recommended and I wish I had known sooner. Easily removed that stubborn goo leaving me with sparkling like new wine bottles for my homemade blackberry wine! I am a happy camper!” —Renee

Get it from Amazon for $7.01.


A pack of Mr. Clean Magic Erasers you can use virtually anywhere to make your walls, tubs, windows, floors, and more look like new again. Now, that’s a neat magic trick!


Promising review: “Loved it, my bathtub has never sparkled like this! Amazing product!” —hrishiness

Get a pack of 10 from Amazon for $13.98.


A pack of microfiber cloths for tackling virtually any cleaning job you can think of. A light, dry dusting? Sure. A streak-free way to wipe up glass cleaner? Definitely. An absorbent dish rag for spills? These cloths practically wrote the book.


Promising review: “I love these microfiber cleaning cloths! I bought my first set last summer and loved them so much that I bought more a couple months later. I use them all over my house, from washing dishes and wiping down countertops to using them dry to dust. One of my very favorite things about these cloths is how easy it is to clean greasy stovetops (after frying bacon) or a particularly greasy dish. Before I would have to clean my black stovetop several times before I would no longer see greasy streak marks, no matter what cleaning product I used. But with these cloths, they clean up the grease the first time and I am left with a sparkling stovetop every single time. Washing these are super easy too. I wash them separately of everything else and use only cold or eco- warm water setting and then hang to dry. The best cleaning product I have bought in ages!” —Dana M. Harper

Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $11.99.


A dishwasher boosting powder to prevent you having to dole out the usual disclaimer to guests of “I know that cup looks dirty but it’s clean, I promise.”


Promising review: “This is legit magic. We have super hard water and the dishwasher did a terrible job cleaning dishes. Enter this weird product. Sprinkle about one teaspoon (you do not need as much as the directions) into the bottom of the dishwasher. One detergent pod in the regular cup. Voila! Clean dishes, sparkling clean dishwasher, no water spots, even removes tea stains from coffee mugs. Pretty sure these crystals are actually tiny dishwashing fairies. I’ve reached peak mom obsessing over dishwashing products, but this is totally worth it.” —GS

Get it from Amazon for $5.97.


A pack of multipurpose Scotch-Brite cleaning pads for scouring up a storm without fear of scratching your stove top, non-stick cookware, or even your car!


Promising review: “Absolutely love this product! No scratches and leaves surfaces sparkling clean. Soft on hands as well.” —srk23

Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $10.98.


A jetted bathtub cleaner because have you ever thought about the gross grime hiding in your Jacuzzi jets? Now that you’ve been cursed with that thought, you’re probably going to want to give your tub a rinse. Just fill it with water, pour the cleaner in, run your jets, and let the “yuck” seep out.


Promising review: “Get this! I was a little hesitant due to the price but I’m so glad I sprang for this! I’ve tried to bubble the gunk outta my jetted tub and thought it was OK with just water; I WAS WRONG! This cleaner made all the difference and so much crap came outta there! This made it really easy to scrub my tub down and get it sparkling clean afterward, so glad I bought this! If you’re on the fence like I was because you’re cheap, buy this! You will be so disgusted yet pleasantly surprised by the crap that comes outta your jetted tub!” —Cebe

Get it from Amazon for $16.99.


A nonscratch cooktop cleaning kit with everything you need to make your always vaguely-greasy stovetop look as good as the day you moved in (or better).


The full kit contains a 10-ounce bottle of the cooktop cleaning solution, one cleaning pad, a grip pad tool, and a scraper.

Promising review: “Cerama Bryte was the brand my grandmother recommended using and grandmas are always right! The extra scrape-y tool is a lifesaver for tough splatters. The cleaner and scrubber themselves work wonderfully. After using this, our stove looks sparkling like new again!” —britt

Get it from Amazon for $9.99.


A wood polish that conditions and protects wood with a combination of beeswax and orange oil, while hiding dings and scratches that were totally already like that when you got it.


Promising review: “Amazing quality and results. Our furniture sparkles after just one use. Easy to apply, clean, and polish solution in one. Highly recommended.” —Amz_Reviewer1

Get it from Amazon for $11.48.


A set of drill brush scrubber attachments for eliminating caked-on soap grime with a fraction of the usually required elbow grease. Charge up your standard electric drill, attach the right brush head for the job, and let the modern luxury of motorized rotation cut through grime quicker than your sad sponge ever could.


The set includes three brush head attachments: a flat two-inch detail brush, a flat four-inch brush for large surfaces, and a rounded brush for corners.

Promising review: “I let my tub get extra dirty on purpose because I knew this brush set was coming. In five minutes my tub was sparkling clean. This item is no joke. The flat brushes are awesome for big surfaces and the cone brush hits the hard to reach corners. I liked them so much I bought a set for my Mom.” —Jason B.

Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in various brush stiffnesses).
