A cleaning pen, so all of your jewels (whether they’re real or not) will be *so* sparkly that everyone will wonder where you got ’em from.
This seemingly average little cleaning pen is filled with a high-performance formula that cleans jewelry like nothing I’ve ever experienced. It contains micro-fine cleansers, polishing agents, and a polymer that will make your gems so shiny they’ll nearly blind you. I’ve used it on my diamond rings, but it also works wonders on my cubic zirconia earrings. Check out my
full review of the Connoisseurs 1050 Diamond Dazzle Stick.
Promising review: “The center stone of my ring (an oval white sapphire) has been cloudy since shortly after I got it. I have to use a lot of hand sanitizer at work, which gets under the stone. This product was easy to use. The little brush gets under the stone really well (much better than a toothbrush). My ring looks like new.” — FintanCat
A grout cleaner you can use to keep your tub and shower squeaky clean and as inviting as a five-star spa.
Promising review: “We recently bought an old house that had last been renovated in 2006. In that time the shower did not get much cleaning and had some mold growth, especially around the seals. We tried using bleach and other mold remover products with partial success. After one application of this one, the mold was gone.” — Darryl Campbell
Promising review: “Finished using it five minutes ago and it’s the best! My husband uses a Stanley thermos daily to take coffee to work. He tries to remember to rinse it out every day, but that doesn’t always happen. I got the package today, filled the thermos with water, dropped in a tablet, and let it sit. I promptly forgot about it for a few hours. Initially, I was disappointed when I dumped the water, as it was barely tinged brown. Then I put fresh water in, covered the top, shook it, and OMG. The crap that came out was disgusting, yet fascinating. I looked in the thermos and saw almost nothing but sparkly silver! There was a little crud left in the top third of the thermos, but it’s a really tall one, so I wasn’t surprised. Got the bottle brush, swished twice, and bam! All clean! No fumes, no smell, no nothing, just clean. I used to struggle cleaning it with baking soda, vinegar, the brush, soap, and elbow grease. Screw that. I will forever use only these tablets! Here’s to better tasting (and way less gross) coffee!” — BranchingOut

A magical hair catcher that’ll save your relationship and keep your shower looking cleaner than ever.
Promising review: “No seriously — this is amazing. I have long hair and recently had a baby. It’s a wonder I still have any hair based on the clumps I see falling out on a regular basis. This means the poor tub drain is getting clogged all the time, and we’re spending ridiculous amounts of time trying to clear it out. I figured if this even worked to catch half of my hair then it would be worth its salt. Holy moly. When they say it catches every hair they aren’t kidding. We clean it off about twice A WEEK! And when they say it’s easy to clean, they are right again. A swipe with toilet paper and the hair blob comes right off. I’ve already told so many people about this product because I love it so much. Fantastic!!!” — sasamo
Price: $12.99+ (available in six colors)
A red wine stain remover, so the next time a contestant does something wild on The Bachelor it won’t matter that you spilled your vino all over brand new couch.
Promising review: “I’m sure if I knew more about science and chemistry, I’d understand how this stuff works — but since I don’t, I’ll just assume that it is MAGIC. If you care at all about your carpet, you need to have a bottle of this on standby. Over the years, we’ve used it to make numerous wine and red juice stains vanish before our eyes. The effect reminds me of the novelty shop disappearing ink gag from when I was a kid. Seriously, if you’ve never seen Wine Away in action, it’s worth spilling a little Cabernet on your carpet just so you can see it vanish after a few spritzes. I honestly wouldn’t believe how quickly this stuff works had I not seen it countless times with my own eyes.” — DarthClem
A pet hair remover with a unique patented brush design, so you’ll be able to invite guests to sit down without fear of them being covered head-to-toe in your dog’s hair.
Promising review: “We live in a household that contains two humans, two dogs, and two cats. It’s a real Noah’s Ark furnished with a black sectional couch. Our dogs absolutely hate the vacuum. So much so they will attack the cleaner head with their vicious bite even before we power it on. This makes the task of cleaning our couch extremely unpleasant and nearly impossible. Thanks to Chom Chom, we no longer have this problem! With a simple, quick, SOUNDLESS sweep, we’re able to keep our couch pet hair–free in blissful peace. This tool does an amazing job picking up pet hair but not so much with crumbs. We were so impressed, we gifted these as Christmas presents for all of our pet-loving friends.” — Magpie
Carpet shampoo to get rid of any stain or smell left behind by any adorable child, furry friend, or wild party.
Promising review: “After reading the reviews I thought I could at least try it, and holy smokes, this is a miracle cleaner!!! I think I have tried every cleaner on the market for pet stains and nothing ever really works on my carpets. Even if I get it off the top, it somehow comes back up. My crazy dogs hate the rain and they have one spot that they always go on when they decide they are not going outside. I have cleaned the spot probably 100 times. I cleaned this area one time with this cleaner and my spot steam cleaner and it is completely gone! The stain and smell are 100% gone, not just covered up like before, completely and absolutely gone. Miracle cleaner for sure!” — PLLane
A deep cleaning brush set, essential for helping you get the grime out of your grout, shower doors, and other hard to reach spaces.
Promising review: “I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, these brushes! I usually used tooth brushes to help me get a good clean in small areas, but I found myself really having to scrub with them which did damage to the brushes. And when that happened, the brushes were then no good to me. I was moving out of my old house and had to get it cleaned to Military Specs as it was base housing, and I needed something to really help me get it cleaned. I found this brushes and thought those might help me with the grouted areas, so for $6 I thought it couldn’t hurt. As soon as I started using them, I just couldn’t stop! I used them for grout, corners, cabinets, hard to reach places around my kitchen/bathroom faucets, around the base of my toilets, the inside of my windows, you name it and I cleaned it with them! I have already recommended them to everyone I know and will continue to do so. These are one of my new favorite cleaning tools. I LOVE them, and cannot praise them enough!!” — Katelynn C.

After reading about how necessary it is to actually clean your makeup brushes (I know, I KNOW, I should’ve been doing this for years) I was super grossed out and motivated to order the right supplies to do the job. I’ve heard good things about
Ecotools makeup brush cleansing shampoo so I figured I’d start there. The Amazon listing also suggested buying a silicone makeup brush cleaning pad to go with it so I figured… why not? Well, now I’m patting myself on the back because ordering these two items was a GAME CHANGER!
I could not believe how much residue came off my brushes in just one cleaning. You only need to use a little dab of the shampoo, so one bottle will definitely last a long time. The silicone pad made it super easy to thoroughly lather the brushes without leaving my bathroom sink in shambles. I also loved how each section was labeled with which brush should be cleaned in each area. My brushes look brand new! Don’t hesitate like I did — buy both the shampoo and the mat ASAP.
Price: $4.79+ (available in a pack of two or as cleansing cloths)
A pet stain and odor remover, so when your furry friend gets a little too excited that you just got home and decides to pee all over your shoes, it’s sort of OK.
Pet parents, are you reading this? We gotta get this!
Promising review: “This stuff works sooooo well. I have tried many other brands of pet stain remover, and this one is definitely the best. I have two indoor cats with hairball issues; they are often spitting up hairballs, or stomach acid only before or after the passing of the hairball. (Sorry for the TMI.) Of course, they only want to do this on the carpet and rugs. This stain remover effectively removes the bodily fluid, hairball, etc., with a nice, fresh minty scent and no sticky residue. I keep a bottle upstairs and downstairs so I don’t have to go hunting for it during those 2 a.m. hairball vomiting sessions (because, of course, that’s the only time they want to throw up).” — Heather Coburn-Schill
This must be one hell of a mop, eh?
Promising review: “Okay, so ever since finding this mop on Amazon, I’ve been excited to try it. In a market of subpar household cleaning devices, this thing ROCKS! I love this mop so much, I mopped my whole house twice in a row. This mop picks up everything off the floor. Even pebbles that can be left on the floor in corners and pet hair. This mop picks up everything! The wringer is PERFECT. I do a two-step process where I first start by getting the floor sopping wet, then I go back through with the mop as dry as I can get it. My floors are completely dry in about five minutes. LOVE LOVE LOVE! Please buy this mop!” — Dillon B.
Heavy-duty cleaning wipes, perfect for removing stains like grease, oil, tar, permanent marker, and lipstick, as well as residue left by adhesives and decals.
Promising review: “I use these daily in my garage and I always stay stocked up. They really are miracle wipes. Even when I get very dirty from working on cars and projects around the house one wipe will usually completely clean my hands. I also use these to clean the stainless bar table and stainless workbenches in my garage and they work phenomenally. Think of them as the ultimate Clorox wipe without the anti-bacterial properties. I strongly recommend these.” — BBrinker
Price: $13.99+ (available two sizes)
You can use this product on both front-load and top-load washing machines.
Promising review: “I have been using bleach to clean my machine for some time but decided to give this a try a few months ago. My very first clean with Affresh left me surprised and delighted, for not only did it clean my machine, it eliminated the nasty smell that always transferred to my clothes thanks to a buildup of mold I didn’t even know about. Every month now, I toss a tablet into the drum and let it work its magic. Now my machine is cleaner than ever, and my clothes always smell wonderfully fresh. I highly recommend this to everyone.” — Kelli Crawford
Promising review: “This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn-out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs that jumped up and scratched places, we also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were, 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 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
Price: $8.48+ (available in 8 oz, 16 oz, and 128 oz)
I’m tired of scrubbing my grout for hours! I’ve had my eye on this cleaning tool for some time now, and I’ve officially decided I need to get it this weekend. Note: You will need to attach the brushes to your own drill.
Promising review: “The sounds crazy but this product has changed my life. We have extremely hard water and I have this ongoing battle with soap scum and hard water stains. This product combined with my cordless drill makes me a soap scum warrior! I spray a little cleaner, wait a couple minutes and then a quick scrub. AMAZING! The large, long attachment is PERFECT for scrubbing my oversized tub … and I don’t even have to get in it. I loved it so much I ordered one for my dad.” — Red Herring
Price: $13.95+ (available in six colors)
OxiClean stain remover, a tried-and-true classic formula you can use to clean your clothes, carpets, and furniture.
Promising review: “I feel fortunate to have found the ‘powers’ of OxiClean products in late 1980s. It was advertised on a TV infomercial and I was lured in by the promises of what it could do for carpets. I am hooked to this day by its results. Believe it or not, I recall the morning I first tried it. I ran upstairs and woke my husband with excitement. We had tried most every carpet cleaner on the market with no luck. It was amazing, cleaning stains that were in the carpet when we bought the home a year before. It works equally well on clothes and in the laundry. Bleach WAS my go-to on whites prior to, but reduced their life expectancy and would yellow over time. I was never happy with any stain-removing product for my colors until I found OxiClean. I haven’t had the need to try any other in almost 30 years now.” — Lady in Midlo
Price: $12.98+ (available in three sizes)
A squeegee that’ll prevent water marks from drying on your glass shower door and give you the opportunity to pretend you’re a badass window cleaner in a massive skyscraper.
I have this exact squeegee and it really does a fantastic job at keeping my shower squeaky clean.
Promising review: “The large suction cup that holds this squeegee in the shower works perfectly. And unlike many metal squeegees, this one is very lightweight, so it will not pull itself off the wall. The blade is strong enough to remove water from my shower doors, and wide enough to allow me to get each door in three easy swipes. For the longest time I resisted purchasing a squeegee, but realized that constantly scrubbing my shower doors to remove soap buildup is far too time-consuming. Using this squeegee does not prevent me from having to clean my shower, but it does allow me to take more time between cleans, as this little device alleviates most of the buildup that would occur. Overall, the squeegee does what it is intended to do — keep my glass shower doors looking clean and soap-scum-free.” — Steven M.
A steam mop, aka a germaphobe’s dream because it’ll sanitize your floors and remove tough stains at the same time.
Promising review: “This hardwood floor mop is amazing. It is extremely lightweight yet sturdy. The water tank has lines on it to indicate how much water to add and how much product to add. It comes with an extra set of pads and two small bottles of all purpose cleaner. I chose to spray Bona on my hardwood floors and use the mop to buff the floor. I used the included all purpose cleaner on my tile floors. My hardwood floors have a very professional-looking shine after using this machine.” — Bigred
Price: $99.99+ (available in three colors and bundles)
Promising review: “We, regrettably, had not properly cleaned our glass stove top for six months. We’d wipe and clean with generic products we had, but nothing removed the deep stains. It was not properly maintained by the previous tenants either, so I wasn’t hopeful we’d get it back to its original appearance. It looked horrible. My mom recommended this product to me and she uses it faithfully. With help of the razor, this product completely transformed our stove top. It looks like it was just installed. I’m so happy and relieved. This will be a must-have item in our kitchen for years to come.” — Amazon Customer
A garbage-disposal foaming cleaner to scrub away the stinky grime that builds up on the blades and in the pipes.
Look at that foam go!
Promising review: “It seems counterintuitive to put a little packet down your garbage disposal to clean it, but this does actually seem to work, at least for getting out weird smells that baking soda and vinegar don’t really touch. I scrub the sink down first, especially around the garbage disposal area, rinse it down, and then just follow the directions on the package. I have used it with single, large-size sinks and with double sinks — only difference is that the double sink will have blue cleaning foam rise up the drain, which you rinse away when the disposal sounds clear again. I have tried the foaming cleaner in a can, but unfortunately it stopped coming out of the can about 10% of the way through. Went back to this tried-and-true.” — KS
A water-bottle-cleaning set that includes three brushes to easily get inside those hard-to-clean crevices AND has a 4.8-star rating on Amazon.
Promising review: “Finally, a long-handled brush that’s not overly wide. I have a different ‘water bottle’ brush that is great, but the handle is so wide, I can’t get it all the way into some bottles. This brush, not a problem. Plus, the thin brush works great for thick reusable straws (I have a set of steel straws and this cleans them well). And the rounded brush works great to scrub in the threads of the bottle lids (always a place crud gets trapped in). Good price, and so far, great brushes.” — SammnIAmToo
Price: $9.99 (available in two colors)
My husband gifted me this cleaner and I’m a huge fan. All you have to do is add a little dish soap and water to the machine, place your jewelry into the basket, and set the timer. Before you know it your fave necklace looks new again!
Promising review: “I’ve had it for two weeks now, and cleaned all of my jewelry twice. Both times I realized how gross jewelry gets when I wear it every day. This machine gets it so sparkly again in just a couple of minutes, with just water and ultrasonic waves, no nasty chemicals.” — Infractus
An eight-pack of Mr. Clean Magic Erasers, so all you’ll have to do is add water then start attacking all the dirty surfaces in your home.
Sing it with meeee: 🎶 Mr Clean will clean your whole house and every room that’s in itttttt 🎶.
Promising review: “I make sure we keep plenty of the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Cleaning Pads on hand. It is not a sponge. It is a dirt and grime lifter, and cleans surfaces like greasy stove tops, grayish grout, and slimy sink scum like nothing else. They do the jobs that a sponge can’t. The evidence of its effectiveness is how quickly the pad loads up with hidden filth including lint, dust, and cat hair. The sponge sees dirt better than my eyes do, and for this, I trust Mr. Clean to get my surfaces sparkling and free from debris. If you use them as much as I do, you will go through a few of these Magic Erasers a week, but they’re worth their muscle and have become an essential household helper.” — Kort
Price: $10 for eight erasers
This plant-based cleaner will remove streaks, smudges, and fingerprints from all stainless steel surfaces — sounds very therapeutic to me!
Promising review: “THIS Therapy Premium Stainless Steel Cleaner is AMAZING. New dishwasher and and a hungry dog are NOT compatible! Our small dog, 12 pounds, had a habit of stretching up her front paws and scratching her nails on the dishwasher while her food was prepared. Not even days had gone by and the new dishwasher had little thin claw scratches all down the front. I had stopped her by placing a footstool to block her, but other family members had not, despite my instructions. I tried several cleaners and had resigned to having a scratched appliance. But ONE try with the Therapy cleaner — yes, a *miracle*. The scratches cannot be seen at all — polished right out of sight. The dishwasher looks even better than when fresh out of the box — it is gleaming. I eagerly shared the success with my kitchen remodeler, who installs many appliances, and I hope others can restore their stainless products. Try it!” — L. Peterson
A jetted-tub cleaner, so you’ll never find yourself soaking in filth while trying to catch up on your me-time.
I personally can vouch for how amazing this product is. I’ve watched with my own eyes as it magically clears out the gross-ness from my jetted tub’s pipes. It’s pretty disgusting and incredible.
Promising review: “My wife told me we had to really clean what appeared to a clean tub. We moved into a house where the previous home owners were not the best cleaners. She had me get this product based on reviews. My one complaint is the label needs to be bigger. OH YUK is not enough. OH YUK YOU MIGHT BARF might be better. I think someone had a bowel movement in my bath tub plumbing and this is the only product that takes it out. It appears we have seven years of crud in the pipes. The feces colored film that this products gets out of your pipes will make you a believer. The first use it released so much toot film that we felt like we needed to have another round of cleaning. After losing a bet I had to stick my hand in the water to drain it. Wiping off all the released film we filled the tub again. Just turning the jets the water seemed to be clear. However before I was going to ever get into this thing I wanted to do a second round of YUK treatment. Once again in full force it appeared that someone had the squirts in tub as sludge came flowing out of the pipes. We’re going to have to run this a few times before we use the tub. Remember those pink tablets that you use to get in grade school to show you all the plaque that was on your teeth….. The product is like that for you tub.” — Paul Southwick
A container of mink oil that’ll condition and waterproof any leather products you own — never worry about your fave handbag or boots getting worn-looking again!
Promising review: “I bought very expensive leather boots over four years ago. Of course, with time, the daily winter wear has started to take a toll…scuffing, scratches, discoloration. I bought this product because I remembered that my grandfather used to use this brand to weather-proof his leather products years ago. I’m not disappointed at all. I will most definitely stick to this product for years to come. I used leather cleaner to clean my boots and then used this mink oil (two layers) to hydrate them. They are BEAUTIFUL! They look as if I just bought them. So happy!” — Amazon Customer
A 24-pack of microfiber cleaning cloths, so you’ll forever be ready to fight the good fight against dirt and grime.
You can NEVER have too many good microfiber cloths, amiright?
Promising review: “I needed a replacement for my kitchen rags/towels that were wearing out. I had read about the microfiber material and its absorbency. These have worked out very well. I use them in the kitchen and for cleaning jobs everywhere including the bathroom. I use the white ones for the bathroom and other cleaning jobs, and the colored ones for the kitchen. They work incredibly well and when they start to wear out they are cheap enough that I just throw them away and get a new one. This is a good product at an inexpensive price.” — Henry Guinn
Price: $10.89+ (available in packs of 24, 36, 48, and 144)
You can also use it on carpets, bedding, cloth diapers, etc.
Promising review: “I feel like you won’t believe what I’m about to write, because I can’t believe it myself. On New Year’s Eve, my husband and I had an epic fail. We dropped a glass of red wine in our bedroom, and as if it was a gymnast, the glass tumbled three times before crashing on the ground. Red wine flew all over the carpet, bedding, and my favorite pale yellow upholstered bench at the end of our bed. We stood there in shock, and then I remembered I had just bought Puracy. After spraying the better part of a bottle on various linens, our carpet, and my pale yellow bench, IT LOOKS LIKE THE EPIC WINE FAIL OF 2016 NEVER HAPPENED. It’s seriously like magic. I still can’t believe my eyes and really wish I took before-and-after photos. Worth every penny!!!!! It’s now my go-to stain remover!!” — Amazon Customer
Price: $7.99+ (available in 4 oz, 25 oz, and 64 oz)
A Swiffer WetJet, essential for anyone who has wood floors and not a lot of available storage space but doesn’t want to live like a slob.
I don’t have a lot of storage space in my apartment, but this lovely Swiffer is so thin it can be easily stored pretty much anywhere.
Promising review: “If you have hardwood floors, get a Swiffer! We spent years sweeping and then mopping (we have a cat so the floors do not look pretty all the time) and this cuts our clean time. I love the starter kit, too, because it’s a great way to test if it is for you. The pads last a pretty good amount of time, too, and the cleaning solution lasts even longer because the Swiffer uses so little. We kept our mop and broom for little things, but this is perfect if you want your floors to look shiny, dry fast, and also get done in little time!” — Leah Cameron
A stain remover that’ll cling to rust like your dog clings to you the minute they see you packing a suitcase.
You won’t believe how efficient this product is for getting rid of rust on any and all surfaces.
Promising review: “We have a VERY high iron concentration in our well water at home and it ends up slowly turning our shower, sink, and toilet a deep orange color over time. Have tried a ton of products to try to fix this issue but nothing works nearly as well as this product. Smells absolutely terrible but works AMAZING. A few spritzes of this and you can watch the orange dissolve away before your eyes. I use this formula for the sink and inside of the shower and use the powder formula for inside the toilet as that seems to work better there. As stated earlier, the smell is awful and lingers until you rinse everything down so definitely have windows open when using this product.” — Samantha
A FlexiSnake tool you’ll watch remove so much gunk and hair from your drains you could probably make a wig with it (but plz, don’t).
Aaaand I’m gagging.
Promising review: “I bought one of these due to the testimonial reviews and because thanks to my six kids, we have slow drains. So I break it out on a Saturday night and started with my bathroom sink. OH MY GOSH! Disgustingly amazing. In two seconds I pulled out a massive hair/soap clog. It was truly amazing and so gross! I went to work on the other bathroom drains and they weren’t nearly as amazing or as quick, but I pulled a bunch of dried hair out of the kids’ tub. So after five drains, I had my fun. I’ve spent a small fortune on Drano-type products that never seem to work. I won’t buy them again. I was even so amazed I shared the nasty pic on Facebook and didn’t think twice about somebody judging me. Get this.” — Jennifer R. Little
A handheld vacuum so lightweight you’ll be able to clean and dance around your living room to Hilary Duff’s “Come Clean” at the same time without fear of tripping over a cord.
Promising review: “This is such a wonderful vacuum! The fact that it is handheld makes it very easy to store and easy to use. We have an 600-square-foot studio with all wood floors and it doesn’t take more than 10 minutes to vacuum the entire apartment. The crevice tool is incredibly useful for nooks and crannies that gather dust, and the attachable nozzle has been great for vacuuming our rug. We have a delicate faux sheepskin rug that really shouldn’t be vacuumed using such a powerful tool, but with the nozzle it’s much more manageable and doesn’t cause too much shedding. The filter is very easy to clean, though fills up pretty quickly, so make sure to clean it more frequently than not! Very happy with this purchase — it has made cleaning the apartment so much easier!” — Sting
A Clorox ToiletWand you can use and then toss — say SEE YA’ to that gross toilet brush hiding in the corner of your bathroom.
I snagged the Clorox ToiletWand last Amazon Prime Day and I’m never looking back. I love that it can be easily tossed away so germs are no longer lingering on a wet, nasty brush in my bathroom. The starter kit comes with six refill heads in addition to the wand and stand.
Promising review: “Finally! Something that actually works! The idea of a reusable toilet cleaning brush is just DISGUSTING! Not to mention when your 2-year-old comes running through the house singing into it!!! AHHHH!!!! Enter the disposable toilet wand! Not only is it MUCH more hygienic than keeping and storing a brush used for scrubbing poop, but I no longer have to worry about my little ones getting into it! Whew! This stuff does a wonderful job, and is so simple and easy to use I’ve even been able to teach hubby! Wonders never cease!” — Gobius
A squeegee-broom contraption with an extendable handle, in case you’ve ever had the urge to rake the inevitable fallen hair from your carpet.
What? Like I’m the only one who finds their own hair all over the house?
Promising review: “This thing just plain works. We got a mature golden retriever last year and were told he didn’t shed. Then in the spring he started shedding badly. We were tired of hair everywhere and somehow I realized that dragging my shoe across the carpet balled the hair up. I found this product on a whim one day and knew it had to be better than my shoe! I ordered it and it was tough at first. The bristles pulled the hair up but then caught the tufts and spread them around. I found that using short quick strokes with the rake turned upside down got the best results. The backside is more like a squeegee and helps pull the hair up in long rolls and keeps the hair in one big pile.” — Nick V.
Promising review: “I’ve used this on my wedding set (platinum and diamonds) and on a white gold ring with an aquamarine stone and it worked great! Got a better clean with this cleaner than when I take my rings to the jeweler. The bristles could be slightly firmer on the brush, but that is my only complaint. The jar has a basket with stick-like handle that holds the brush, which makes for easy, safe cleaning of jewelry. Can’t wait to clean other items!” — Mrs. B
Granite cleaner that’ll leave your counters feeling smooth as a baby’s bottom, even after the messiest of meal preps.
Every night before she goes to sleep my mom runs her hand along her granite counters. If they don’t pass the test, she breaks out these wipes and goes to town making sure there is no leftover residue from whatever was cooked that day. This product is legit.
Promising review: “I have tried a lot of granite cleaners but this stuff is outstanding! It’s the best I have used so far. It cleans my granite perfectly and I don’t get that slick or greasy feel to them. Along with that, no streaks. Apply the product, let it set for about 19 seconds, wipe down with towel, and that’s it. It leaves a nice shine on my countertops but it’s not like you’re applying a top coat every time.” — Frank
Price: $4.96+ (available as wipes or 24 oz spray)
An investment-worthy cordless vacuum, so you don’t have to worry about tripping over a pesky cord while trying to get your darn floors clean (again).
Amazon, Yi Yang / BuzzFeed
I got this Dyson vacuum for Christmas and it has changed my life. It cleans so many corners I wasn’t able to reach before. It is also super light, making it easier than ever to clean my entire apartment without breaking a sweat.
Promising review: “This is an amazing device. The suction is as good as my old, corded Dyson (from 2006). It’s light. The fact that it’s cordless is awesome — I didn’t realize how much fighting with the cord on my old vacuum contributed to making the chore of cleaning onerous. The battery lasts in normal cleaning mode more than long enough to do our entire downstairs, over 2,000 square feet. Because it only runs when you pull the trigger, you’re not wasting battery life when you move from room to room, so the total time I spend cleaning is longer than the battery life. The attachment for stairs is excellent. It works equally well on hardwood floors and carpet.” — Max G.

review of the Dyson V7 Motorhead Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner.
A special cloth that’ll leave your windows so clean birds will attempt to fly into your house. (Ouch! Be careful, guys!)
This cloth is made with a waffle weave that magically removes dirt without leaving any streaks — it’s amazing.
Promising review: “I would recommend this product to everyone. For years, I’ve tried different methods to get the inside car windows streak- and grease-free, with moderate success. One use of this product, and my car windows are beautifully clear. I tried it on the household mirrors and other places I would use a glass cleaner, and again, wonderfully clear and streak-free. My Windex days are over.” — Dr. Pepper
Price: $12.99 for a set of two (available in two colors)
A cleaning spray made just for your car, so the next time you spill your coffee all over yourself or your kid dumps their soda in between the seats, you’ll still be covered.
Car Guys’ Super Cleaner can be used on upholstery, canvas, leather, vinyl, plastic,
Promising review: “I have used every product that you can find on the shelves of your local store. When I sprayed the cleaner on the light beige interior of a 25-plus-year-old car, the interior turned to its original color. After years of detailing, I had assumed at this point, the color was set and that’s it — not with this stuff. While cleaning it I literally said out loud, ‘No way, no way,’ because I was in disbelief at how amazing it worked, and the results are in the compliments I receive from friends.” — Andrea Garcia

And a robot vacuum, because you deserve to have a product that cleans your home while you binge-watch Tidying Up With Marie Kondo.
The future has arrived, my friends.
Promising review: “I’ve been in the market for a robovac for quite some, and after a recent back surgery vacuuming manually wasn’t easy. I purchased this vacuum and have been very pleased with it. Its slim design gets under the dressers, beds, other furniture, and all the tight spaces that I couldn’t get to with an upright vacuum cleaner. This makes a very low sound while in use, and honestly, I don’t even realize it’s operating, as the sound is pleasant (not loud at all). The price is right, and replacement filters are very inexpensive.” — Teach3
