Promising review: "Oh my gosh — this stuff is a life changer! Used it to get my fiberglass shower totally clean. Nothing else would get it done and this stuff brought my shower back to near-new in one use. We’ve since cleaned a weird chalky film off our garage door, removed wall markings, and cleaned my storm door. We’ll never be without a jar (or three) of this stuff. Worth every penny." —Nancy F.

Get it from Amazon for $8.45.

2. Or a a spray version you can use to clean basically everything in your house — even marker on the wall no cleaner (including bleach) could remove.

Promising review: "I love the scent and how it leaves such a pretty shine and smooth feel on my counters and stove top! A little goes a long way, which makes it a very economical purchase. It is so easy to use and requires very little (if any) scrubbing. Simply spray and wipe. We have very hard water, and the stains have been removed by the first use! I was so impressed with this product, I bought it for my mom and my best friend (who are all cleaning obsessed liked me). There is a bottle in the kitchen and both bathrooms as well as stocked in my cleaning closet!" —EJ

Get it from Amazon for $5.12

3. An electric pressure washer because your yard has seen some better days after the rough winter it's gone through. With this, you'll be able to give your deck, driveway, outdoor furniture, and more a deep clean so they're ready to go now that good weather is on the horizon.

Promising review: "Incredible value for the money. I've washed everything worth washing at my house — my deck, stone walls, concrete, etc... The product works and outputs the ideal pressure for household jobs. I can't imagine how much scrubbing I would have had to do if I did not have this amazing machine." —Surgeon Rick

Get it from Amazon for $169.

4. A foaming garbage disposal cleaner you can use weekly to stop any buildup or odors from coming out of your sink. Nobody wants to deal with that grossness!

Promising reviews: "We moved into a townhouse that had a garbage disposal in the kitchen. I never had one growing up and didn't think too much about it until the funky smell started. I researched ways to clean it and came across these. Decided to order a four-pack and try them. THEY ARE LIFE CHANGING. Just run some water, toss the packet in, and turn on the disposal. The little packet does all the hard work for you. I order a new set as soon as we start to run low." —lucas broshears

Get a four-pack from Amazon for $3.78 (also available in a boxed option). 

5. An AirPod cleaning pen to give the things you stick in your ear the deep clean they deserve. It has a sponge to dust the charging case, a brush to get rid of any dirt in holes, and a metal pen tip to remove the pesky wax and other dirt that has made a home in your earbuds. Don't be surprised if all of a sudden the sound quality improves because there's nothing clogging those sick beats from getting out.

Promising review: "I've had my AirPods (2nd gen) for a couple of years and use them daily. Lately, I noticed that the sound was muffled, so I bought this simple tool. I was amazed by how easy it was to use and how much the sound quality improved. Basically, you just carefully scrape all the accumulated gunk off of the mesh screen with the metal pick and then use the brush to clean it. When I saw how dirty the AirPods were, I was shocked. I really can't understand why I didn't figure this out earlier. A light touch is all that is needed to lift the dirt and the brush works great. Anyway, great value and much improved sound immediately. Very pleased." —amielp

6. super-long extendable duster because you can only "forget" to clean your ceiling fans, light fixtures, and under furniture for so long because of the extra effort it takes. With this, you'll be able to get to all those hard-to-reach spots easily. And just think about how accomplished you'll feel when you're done. You got this!

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in seven colors).

7. Keurig cleaning cups, a must-have for anyone whose coffee maker should probably be paid overtime for the amount it works for you. This makes it so simple to give it the clean it needs. Just put one of the pods in the machine, and you'll be amazed at how much gunk comes out of it. 🤮

Promising review: "I had no idea that cleaning a Keurig was a thing. I bought these because I saw them on TikTok believe it or not. I wanted to give it a go because my Keurig isn’t that old and I didn’t think it would do anything. IT WORKS SO WELL! My Keurig wasn’t as nasty as some I’ve seen, luckily. I would highly recommend, keeps everything runny correctly and clean." —Lauren

Get a six-pack from Amazon for $9.95.

8. Or a descaling solution if you use a standard coffee pot or tea kettle in the morning. This will help break down the limescale and mineral buildup inside the appliances. If your morning cup just isn't tasting quite like it used to, give this a try to help bring it back to life.

Promising review: "This worked amazing for the electric kettle, which had gotten scaly but wouldn’t clean up completely with dish detergent. It was like new after boiling water with some of this solution. It worked well for coffee pot and could taste a difference in coffee afterwards. I'm very satisfied and glad I found it." —Karen L

Get a pack of two from Amazon for $13.99.

9. A can of fume-free oven cleaner that's super easy to use to transform the inside of your oven. Just spray it, wait for it to dissolve all the stains, and then wipe it away. You'll be left with a spotless oven ready to take on whatever baking challenge you think of next.

Promising review: "I rarely write reviews, but this stuff is straight magic!! When we moved into our new home, the oven was disgusting! I absolutely HATE cleaning a freaking oven, but after reading the reviews, I decided to give it a shot. For less than $6, what the heck, I’ll give it a try! Sprayed it on last night, got up this morning and wiped it out with nothing but paper towels and BAM! My new favorite cleaning product! I’m going to end up doing it again tonight just to have it all sparkly, because like I said, this thing was disgusting, and there were a couple of spots on the door and in the bottom that I missed. If I had felt like putting more effort into it, I could have scrubbed it clean, but let’s be real here, ain’t nobody got time for that! If you’re questioning whether this stuff works, just buy it and prepare to be blown away!" —Brittany Douglas

Get it from Amazon for $8.98.

10. A Bissell multipurpose portable cleaner pretty much guaranteed to gross you out because of all the dirt and gunk it will pull out from the furniture and upholstery in your home. Reviewers have used this to save their couches, rugs, stairs, car seats, and more.

Promising review: "This vacuum is amazing. I first heard of it on TikTok where people were using it to clean their stairs, mattresses, car seats, etc. and from the videos, it already looked amazing. But considering how dirty my dining chair cushions were, I was a little bit apprehensive and skeptical. I purchased the item and used it on my chairs for the first time and the results were SO AMAZING. Best vacuum I've ever used. I even bought a second one!" —Davina

Get it from Amazon for $109.59

11. Dishwasher cleaning tablets because, yes, the machine you use to clean your dishes needs to be cleaned, too. Just add one of the tabs monthly when you run a cycle, and it will help remove lime and mineral build-up *and* odor-causing residue. Your dishes will come out cleaner, which will probably make you happier.

Promising review: "After using this product, I am happy to report that my $5 investment saved me over $500. I was ready to replace my dishwasher due to super cloudy glasses, residue, and just not getting clean. Then, I became aware that the water softener no longer was doing its job, so I had the rental company replace it. Dishwasher performance improved somewhat. I decided to do two more loads before deciding to purchase a new one. Then I saw a product test review for Affresh in a magazine. I was ordering some stuff from Amazon anyway, so I added that to my order. When it came, I tossed one of the tablets into the bottom of the full machine, and ran the regular cycle. I did not expect the results I got! My glassware that I thought was permanently etched and ruined came out like new. Same with cutlery. The difference is unbelievable. I will use this faithfully on a monthly basis, as recommended. I can even put it on my subscribe and save order, so I will get a new pack every six months. I am amazed!" —Sheila

Get a pack of six from Amazon for $8.99.

12. cleaning spray with a peppermint scent that will leave your home with that same scent and deep-clean feeling as you do when you leave the dentist. This spray is made with all-natural ingredients and just a couple of spritzes will remove dust and grime, no problem.

The Hoot is a Black woman-owned small business that offers all-natural cleaning sprays.

BuzzFeed contributor Bek O'Connell says: "You know that refreshing feeling you get after a deep clean at the dentist? That's how I feel about my home after using this spray. The peppermint smell is so invigorating and makes everything smell fresh. It cuts through grime and dust with no problem, and I think might actually scare off mice (rodents hate minty smells). The sprayer works well, and the bottle is even made from recycled plastic. This 'eco-friendly' brand was started by Tonya Newsome, a professional cleaner, who noticed traditional cleaning solutions made with harsh ingredients were causing skin irritation and respiratory issues. Newsome decided to make a cleaner that's just as effective but without sodium laureth sulfate and sodium lauryl sulfate (both known to cause irritation and allergic reactions for people with sensitive skin). I have to say, it's really nice to use a cleaner that works but doesn't give off unpleasant fumes or put my dog at risk. If you're looking for a multipurpose spray that smells like a nice piece of gum instead of the bottom of a swimming pool, try it out!"

Get it from The Hoot for $6.49+ (available with two sprayer nozzle options). 

13. weekly, bleach-free shower spray you simply spray in your shower, leave overnight, and rinse the next day. Yes, this cleaner is basically the set it and forget it of shower cleaners.

Note: Depending on how dirty your shower is, some reviewers say it takes a couple of applications to get it completely clean. 

I finally bought this after putting into approximately 7,375 posts, and honestly, I'm mad at myself for not adding it to my cart sooner. I am not the biggest fan of cleaning the bathroom, especially the shower. It's just so cumbersome to get to everything and really feel like you've gotten a good clean. But this spray made it SO easy. I just spritzed my whole shower and let it sit — 24 hours later, I came back and rinsed it. I could tell there was a noticeable difference. I'm super happy with this and will always clean my shower this way from now on. 

Get it from Amazon for $19.54 (available in two different scents and also a refill bottle).

14. pet hair remover for any pet parent who can't seem to escape the loads of hair that end up covering their furniture, especially this time of year. Seriously, sometimes it feels like they lose every single hair on their body every day. Simply roll it on the upholstery, and it will grab every last strand.

Promising review: "TikTok made me buy this, and it is money well spent!! I’m convinced that my beagle sheds a full coat of hair and regrows it daily! I use this on my bed every single day and it blows my mind how well it works. Before this I was going through 4–5 disposable sticky rollers a month and spending 3x longer to remove dog hair. I am buying these for everyone in my family as Christmas gifts this year! ❤️" —tiff4short

Get it from Amazon for $29.99

15. Or a Fur-Zoff pet hair remover that looks like a stone but works like a charm to remove all the fur from those nooks and crannies of your chairs, carpets, and couches.

Promising review: "Holy cow, this is magic. I have a 230 pound Mastiff. I have purchased any and everything claiming to get dog hair off car carpet. I have used at least three different vacuums and attachments. Lately, I have been using a microfiber towel because it had some grip. Then this piece of magic arrived. It gets every single hair no matter how embedded. There were hairs I had a hard time removing with my fingers. The Fur-Zoff pulled them right out. This has reduced my hair removal time in half!" —david r

Get it from Amazon for $11.07.

16. An oil stain remover you simply stir, put a layer over the stain you probably thought would be there forever, and let it sit for 72 hours. Then you can just scrape it off, and your counter (or wherever the stain was) will have no evidence the incident ever occurred. Cleaning magic at its best!

a series of photos showing a reviewer using the stain remover to get rid of an oil stain on their countertop

It's recommended for use on marble, granite, limestone, travertine, slate, sandstone, grout for ceramic and porcelain tile, masonry, and concrete!

Promising review: "Had an oil stain on my untreated West Elm marble top buffet from a kids toy. I purchased the oil stain remover and crossed my fingers that it would work. Followed the directions, waited 72 hours to let it dry completely, and then scraped it off with a credit card. It worked perfectly! I couldn't be happier with the results. I highly recommend this product!" —MKDJ

Get it from Amazon for $10.45.

17. Kaboom with OxiClean here to make cleaning your bathroom a breeze because this cleaner sprays on blue and then turns white when it's done working through the grime. You'll never have to second-guess if the tub is actually clean because you only waited four minutes instead of the recommended five.

Promising review: "My wife was looking for something to clean a film from her tub. She tried all the other products available, but none worked as well as this. It went on blue, and turned white after. It did a good job; you could see where you sprayed it and where you didn't. I would buy this product again." —Jerome P.

Get it from Amazon for $3.98.

18. A set of scrubbing attachments you'll want to constantly take for a ~spin~, because they will get everything so darn clean without causing your arm to hurt from too much scrubbing.

Promising review: "We originally purchased this to scrub our tile floors and grout in the bathrooms. We have a dog who slobbers everywhere and the only way to clean it is to use elbow grease. This thing is magical! We’ve used it on the walls (no paint removed), based boards, door jams and doors, windows, floors, and cabinets. Just dip it into warm soapy water and go to town! Recommending this to all our friends. Cuts cleaning time in half!" —A. Bos

Get it from Amazon for $18.95 (available in six brush stiffness colors).

19. stain- and odor-eliminating spray that provides a quick one-two punch to not only remove the spots but also smells that may have ended up in your carpet from your furry friends. It lifts away dirt and grime while also releasing enzymes to break down the odors.

Rocco & Roxie is a family-owned small business that offers pet supplies, from cleaners, to treats, grooming tools, toys, and more.

Promising review: "This stuff is AMAZING. I have tried so many cleaners from local stores and NOTHING would get the smell out! Let me include a side note that I have three kittens and one dog — the dog AND one of my kittens are continuously having accidents on our carpet, and it has been a NIGHTMARE. This product has been a life saver. It's super easy to use too. Just clean up the mess, soak the area, wait five minutes, and soak up the product. As soon as you spray this stuff on the spot, the smell is completely gone. I wish I would have known about this stuff when my pet mess problem originated. I will DEFINITELY be purchasing more and highly recommend this stuff!! Great product." —Danielle Brittain

Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

Promising review: "I’ve been using Dyson animal vacuums since they were invented. They do better than any other vacuum in the battle against dog hair from our three dogs. But this stick vacuum picks up more dog hair than any plug-in vacuum I’ve ever used. It’s just amazing how much more it picks up. Add to that not having to hassle with a cord, and this thing is just amazing. It’s so effortless to just grab it and vacuum one part of the house everyday. It actually makes vacuuming fun because it just picks up so much stuff so easily." —J Brown

Get it from Amazon for $585

21. Or an Orfeld vacuum if you're not quite ready for that big of an investment. Reviewers love this option because it's quiet, cordless, has great suction, and is easy to maneuver. Plus, the extended tube can be removed to turn it into a handheld vacuum to clean furniture and blinds.

It comes with a stick vacuum cleaner, an extended wand, two filters, a spare screen filter, a LED head brush, a soft roller brush, a hard roller brush, a crevice nozzle, a combination nozzle, a storage and charge station and a user manual.

Promising review: "This is my first cordless vacuum, so I was hesitant to pull the trigger, but I'm so glad I did! It makes vacuuming one of my favorite chores. I don't have to worry about finding a plug as I move through the house or getting tangled up and fighting with the cord. It is so much lighter than traditional plug-in vacuums and much easier on me... my back would always ache after pushing and pulling my old heavier vac so I dreaded vacuuming. No pain after using this vac! I have two dogs and have had no problem with the suction power picking up stray hairs. It's so light that I just lift it up and run it across my couch and the arms. I love the wall hanging option. I have it hanging next to my washer in the laundry closet so it's not eating up my closet space, and it's charging each time I put it away. One of my favorite purchases in the last decade for sure." —Virginia Trevino

Get it from Amazon for $109.97.

22. A microfiber window blind cleaner designed with three blades that clean the top and bottom of two blinds at once. It'll pick up all the dust you hadn't really realized had been casually sitting in your home.

The cleaner also comes with five microfiber duster cloths.

Promising review: "Where has this blind cleaner been for the past 50 years???? I have struggled to keep my blinds clean for so many years and happily found this item. It WORKS!!! And I love that it comes with extra sleeves, and the sleeves are machine washable. The handle is plastic, but I feel confident it won't break any time soon." —marionvgt

Get the six-piece set from Amazon for $7.99 (also available in green).

23. A tub of heavy-duty cleaning wipes that not only clean but can remove heavy stains – from permanent marker, to lip stick, and more. And with more than 46,000 5-star ratings, reviewers confirm that these live up to the hype and more.

Promising review: "I'm in LOVE with these. I wanted something to CLEAN, not disinfect. I bought these knowing full well that they weren't Lysol/Clorox wipes. What I didn't know was that they were already pre-moistened — added bonus! They clean really well (even got my gunky window frames looking brand-new) and the smell is wonderful. I love cleaning my bathroom with these simply because it leaves my bathroom smelling like a soft citrus flower (don't worry, it's nothing like grandma's overwhelming floral scent). I definitely recommend these for cleaning around the house!" —Amber

Get a tub of 90 wipes from Amazon for $14.58 (available in various wipe sizes and multi-pack varieties).

24. Bar Keepers Friend cleanser you can apply to your old stainless steel pots and surfaces that have seen better days. After rubbing it with a wet cloth or sponge and letting it sit for one minute, rinse, and the surface will transform right in front of your eyes.

The spray is free of alcohol, ammonia, and harmful phosphates. You can use it to clean any screen, including HDTVs, PC monitors, tablets, laptops, smartphones, and more!

Promising review: "A miracle! I've been looking for this product all my life! I have a nice 42-inch smart TV that I hate cleaning. Every product I used left streaks everywhere so I'd use more and rub and rub...Make sure your screen is cool and spray an ample amount on the cloth provided and smear it everywhere. Then flip the cloth and rub it off. I think this is truly one of the greatest breakthroughs in modern history. They give you a huge can of this stuff and a quality cloth." —Paul Wedero

Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

26. mold and mildew stain remover spray perfect for that outdoor chair you're about to spend so much time sitting in while soaking up the long-missed sunshine. The formula works to remove deep-set, below-the-surface stains so it only *looks* like you went out to buy new patio furniture.

Promising review: "I have a small three-tier water fountain in my patio, naturally the birds in the community have come to rely upon it for drinking and bathing.

When I checked back all of the mold was gone, everything, with no damage to the painted stucco wall or cement and no scrubbing. Literally spray and leave." —Mark

Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in three sizes and also multi-packs).

27. steaming microwave cleaner accurately named the "Angry Mama" because it's what your mom would look like if she saw how dirty your microwave was. This gadget works to dislodge the food and dirt inside the microwave so you can easily wipe the mess away. Save the scrubbing for the Scrub Daddy

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

Get it from Amazon for $6.41 (available in two colors and also a pack of two).

28. A cleaner kit because your fireplace might need a little extra love after providing you warmth for the past few months. Reviewers say this can remove soot stains and odors that they thought were going to be there forever.

A fireplace before using the kit, that looks like gray brick with a huge black stain from the pit to the top of the mantle. Then after the kit, with brick and no stain

The kit includes a brush along with the 16-ounce bottle of nontoxic fireplace cleaning formula.

Promising Review: "Honestly, I didn't think there was hope on my fireplace being cleaned, but wow, Im actually impressed!!! I'm shocked how well this worked, and I only went over it once. I'm sure if I repeated the process 2-3 times, it would all be gone. I definitely recommend this product, hands down. Easy to use and gets the job done. Doesn't look too ugly anymore. :)" —Ovsanna

Get it from Amazon for $16.09+ (available in two sizes).

29. A stainless steel cleaner made with natural coconut oil to clean, polish, and protect your sink, fridge, and oven.

Plus, it comes with a microfiber cleaning cloth!

Promising review: "I was hesitant because other cleaners weren’t great. They either didn’t work or left a weird residue that dust would stick to. This cleaner doesn’t leave a residue and actually works! Highly recommend!" —Courtney B.

Get it from Amazon for $19.95 (also available in a two-pack). 

30. A fizzing toilet tablet you simply drop in your toilet, and the fizzing will work to loosen all the stains and buildup. Then all you have to do is lightly brush the bowl, flush all the grossness away, and get back to doing more fun and exciting things, like meeting your friends for a drink at a fun rooftop bar.

Pardo Naturals is a Black woman-owned small biz founded by Rita Pardo who created natural body, hair, and home products that wouldn't irritate her daughter's severe eczema.

BuzzFeed Shopping editor Melanie Aman says: "For all the folks who don't enjoy cleaning the toilet — myself included — these dissolving tablets make quick work of a grimy bowl. The tablets are a little hard to dislodge from the plastic container (though that does make me feel confident that they're secure during transit and won't break; mine all arrived intact!), but once you get one out, you drop it in the toilet, and let it do its thing. It'll start fizzing — just like a bath bomb — loosening any stains and streaks in 10 minutes so they come away with a light brushing. I never let the toilet get too bad (and usually it takes awhile for me to notice any buildup since there are only two people in the apartment), so I can't vouch for them if you have really set-in hard water stains or haven't cleaned the commode in six months. But if you're looking to ditch the harsh cleansers in your toilet cleaning routine, this is a great addition to your lineup."

Get six tablets from Pardo Naturals for $10.50 (available in seven scents).

31. A scratch-free scraper to remove the grime and grease in those tiny spaces that you assumed would be stuck there forever — until today. The scraper also work on labels, stickers, stuck-on food, candle wax, and more. They're just handy to have around.

Promising review: "This is the greatest cleaning tool invented! I love it! I had tried every tip to get rid of the hard-water buildup around my sinks and this little gizmo gets rid of it in a breeze. Everyone should have one. So simple and so brilliant." —Debra J.

Get a pack of two from Amazon for $11.99 (also available in a five-pack).

32. A pack of melamine cleaning sponges one reviewer used to remove set-in muddy puppy prints on their door in only 10 minutes. Sure, these might not be the brand name, but they still do have some "magic" in them.

Promising review: "I was skeptical but these are nothing short of magical. Our door was what I thought to be permanently stained brown from muddy puppy feet jumping up on it. I'd tried all kinds of sprays and cleaners. These things made it look brand new again in 10 min. So much cheaper than brand name and work just as good and hold up better in my opinion. I will definitely order again!" —Rachael Kapper

Get a pack of 20 from Amazon for $13.95.

33. A car wash soap made to remove all those bugs and grime that have built up on your vehicle over the winter months. This solution will give your car the same new life that stepping outside on the first nice day of spring does to you.

Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

34. A Furemover rubber broom that works to remove pet *and* human hair from deep in your carpet that your vacuum can't reach. Plus, it has a squeegee edge so you can also use it to clean your shower, windows, and even car windshield. We love a multipurpose product!

The broom is made with 100% natural rubber that attracts hair. It can be used on carpets, rugs, hardwood, and linoleum.

Promising review: "This broom was recommended to me by a few friends, and I completely disregarded the suggestions. I have two German shepherds and sweep our hardwood floors daily. It's just the life of a GSD household. But after seeing this EXACT broom recommended by MANY in a dog running group, I finally decided that 'well maybe it's worth a try. I mean, that's a LOT of recommendations.' 

IT IS THE BEST THING EVER!!!!! I CANNOT BELIEVE I WAITED THIS LONG TO BUY ONE!!! It really just collects dog fur like a magnet. I don't know how they made this rubber magic wand, but there must be a factory of magical unicorns sprinkling enchantment curses on each broom. This thing just attracts the fur; EACH LITTLE TINY HAIR!! IT'S MAGIC, I TELL YOU!! MAGIC!!!!" —Knoxmom

Promising review: "Love this tool!!! I bought it based off a TikTok hack I stumbled upon to help tackle pet hair. I have three cats who shed and sometimes I don’t think my vacuum picks it up very well. Well I purchased this and it removed pretty much all the hair in the areas I went over my carpet with. I cleaned an entire staircase without breaking a sweat using this tool and it picks up so much hair!!" —Kymberlianne Brackins

Promising review: "Buy it NOW. Honestly, I had huge reservations for this thing. Yet another miracle cleaning tool that will break or bend or something. I was so wrong. It was easy to put together and I sprayed it with Mean Green and went to the baseboards. No more kneeling and no broken back. This thing is amazing. It is durable and the pad is super absorbent. I am so happy. I can't wait to do the rest of the house!" —artgirl

Promising review: "This product does exactly what it says it does. I saw this product on TikTok. I was surprised at how easily it picks up dust and small debris, especially from inside of vents and cup holders. It’s also great for the screen in my car! The only complaint is the very artificial smell when you use it. It doesn’t last, just when it’s out of the container!" —Loren

I have a similar Shark robot vacuum and think it is so great. We run it two to three times a week in the apartment, and it really does a great job at keeping the floor clean. It's easy to program a schedule that works best for you so you don't even have to worry about remembering to vacuum, this gadget will do it for ya. 

Promising review: "I absolutely love my Shark robot vacuum. It saves me so much time and works great. With two dogs, three cats, and kids, my floors were always a mess. I run this twice a day and my floors look great, and I haven't had to get my regular vacuum out since I have had it. I have one high pile rug that it may not get all the dog hair out of, but it works wonders on my hardwood floors. Also, I love how it fits in small places like under the bathroom vanity and side tables where my other vacuum could not. My only regret is not buying two of them (one for each floor) when they were on sale. Do yourself a favor and order this!! 10 stars!" —Chad Haney

39. Reusable microfiber glass-cleaning cloths with the power to leave your light fixtures and mirrors streak-free. And all you need is a little bit of water. Yep, that's right.

Promising review: "I honestly didn’t believe these would work. But they are MAGIC. No glass cleaning products needed. Wet the green cloth with water, wring out so just damp. Clean the glass. Use the dry blue cloth to buff. That’s it. Zero streaks. Zero. My mirrors have never been so streak free. Even with paper towel and Windex, I still always had streaks and lint. That’s it. I can’t believe it, truly amazing." —Your Mom

Promising review: "Carpet Miracle is the absolute best product I have ever used! I have six kids, three dogs, and two cats. You can't even believe the messes that have happened in my house. But this product is basically magic. One of my kids spilled black acrylic paint on my two-weeks-brand-new carpet last year and carpet miracle got it completely out. There's not even a shadow left. I also use a cap full in stinky loads of laundry. It gets the smell out of anything! And there hasn't been a stain yet that this product hasn't defeated." —Lyndsey

Promising review: "We live in an old 1790s home with lots of wall trim and moulding. This piece of cleaning equipment makes dusting super easy. All I do is run around the room a couple of times, tackling each level of trim at a time and then shake it out outdoors. When it gets really dusty and dirty, I just toss it in the wash. LOVE IT!" —swissgirl
