Promising review: “I normally don’t review products but this time I’ll make an exception. This product works really well. The stains in my kitchen sink were horrible. I sprinkled this stuff on used a scrub brush and amazing! This scrub smells great and does a bang-up job.” —R.C. Jeffs

Promising review: “It immediately latched onto the hair clogging my drain like some kind of an alien extraterrestrial creature. I was disgusted and amused at the same time. I tried it on my other drains and it worked well. This thing is incredible for removing hair In your drain.” —Michael
Promising review: “This stuff is amazing. I just put it on a sponge and rubbed it on then rinsed. I don’t know what is in here that makes it so amazing, but for water spots, glass, tile, and sinks it is great! I’ve already bought and gifted three bottles to my friends because I love it so much. I’m like a walking infomercial about it too because I will climb into their showers and show them. That’s how exciting this stuff is. Worth every penny.” —mel
Promising review: “Simply unbelievable. Fume-free and no gloves needed, but dissolves anything cooked on! Simply sprayed on, shut door overnight, and wiped off with paper towels. Do not have to dread cleaning oven ever again!” —Andrew J.
Promising review: “The guest bathroom toilet had rings around the bowl for eight years that even straight bleach would not remove. I learned about these stones that promise to clean in a short period with no damage to bowl. Hard water stains, calcium buildup, and mold all gone in five minutes.” —Amazon Customer
Reviewers say this lil’ wonder easily cleans up eraser shavings and other hard-to-see particles around your house.
Promising review: “I bought this little vacuum as a joke but it actually helps me clean the dust on my desk. With the two different attachments it helps me go in between cracks and small spaces. Since it’s a small vacuum, the suction isn’t that strong, but overall it does the job.” —Urban Outfitters customer
Promising review: “My parents’ cleaner was at the house when I showed her the bottle and sprayed. Literally within moments the spot was shades lighter! We put more on and then did other parts of the rug. While there are still some dark patches, it is a gazillion times lighter than it was!” —L. A. Meisel
Have more dirty outdoor surfaces? This cleaner can also be used on brick, wood composite, and patio furniture!
Promising review: “I used the outdoor cleaner in a spray bottle to clean algae from my concrete bird baths. Tip the water out, spray the cleaner, let it sit a few minutes, and wash it out with a hose. Clean as a whistle. Love not having to use a scrub brush to clean algae from around the raised, ornamental parts inside the bird bath bowl.” —Amazon Customer

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. I literally sprayed this product and walked away, I actually left it on overnight, I got busy with other tasks. 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

Promising review: “My kids loved sliding around the house helping me with cleaning the floors! I sprayed a little floor cleaner down, put on some fun music and off we all went! It was a dance party that doubled as a house cleaning! Need to get a smaller size for my youngest, but other than that they were perfect! Highly recommended to help break up the monotony of housework.” —A Winslow
Promising review: “Wish I could’ve been the one to come up with this idea! Perfect daily maintenance cleaning solution for typical NYC-style apartment toilets that don’t have tanks (i.e. flushometer). Makes routine cleaning a breeze and freshens bathroom. I’m hooked!” —Randy Hall

Promising review: “Literally one of the best items I’ve bought off of Amazon. I have an English bulldog and now that summer is approaching, he’s shedding his winter coat. I let this baby go one round through my kitchen and all the hair is gone! It was able to pick up all the hair in one round while it would’ve taken me two rounds of sweeping! Don’t waste your time on other models and buy this one!” —hayden
Promising review: “I put this stuff on and holy moly did it work. All the dry spots just absolutely disappeared. The wood looks gorgeous — like new. I was so sure that I was going to have to do some sanding if I wanted the wood to ever look good again, so to say this saved me a ton of labor is an understatement.” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: “I am super impressed with these! You just drop it in the disposal, run a thin stream of water, and turn on the disposal. It foamed up and burned right through all the grease in my disposal. It smells so much better too! I was a bit unsure at first, but it actually worked super well.” —Movieluver
Promising review: “I was skeptical at first. Was afraid my keyboard would be all gummed up with yellow slime! It cleaned it as good as new. Got all those dog hairs between the keys! No smell lingering on the keyboard or my hands and it’s kind of fun to play with.” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: “So, we have a toilet that belongs to the cats. We don’t use it, we don’t look at it, and we like to pretend it does not exist. Even with semi-regular flushing, cat waste is pretty nasty stuff and builds up quickly in the bowl. One of these wands cleaned it up in a single session.” —Whitney
My colleague Natalie Brown swears by this cleaning gadget and said “This thing works small miracles: I cleaned about half of my bathroom’s grout to its original sparkling-clean cream color in 40 minutes, and it took honestly no effort at all.” Read more of her Rubbermaid Reveal Power Scrubber review.
Promising review: “Last night I was reborn. What is the cause of this renewed zest for life, you might ask? It was the use of the Rubbermaid Reveal Power Scrubber on my shower grout. It elevated a simple baking soda-and-water solution to alchemical proportions. My pink-tiled shower, the one that came with my scummy apartment, the one that never looks clean no matter how many hours of backbreaking labor I put in, now looks bright, clean, and full of promise. An otherwise disgusting and dated purely utilitarian part of my home is now art. TL;DR: This is absolutely incredible.” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: “Just thought I would be doomed to a fingerprint-stained fridge for the rest of my small children’s time at home. I have tried everything from sprays to special microfiber cloths, and there were always shadows of where the handprints and fingerprints had been. The very first time I used this, it cleaned off two years of three kids’ fingerprint smudges that I thought were permanent! It took a matter of seconds. Ah-mazing.” —ZMomUtah
Promising review: “I live in Utah and have seasonal allergies. We’ve had a spike in some kind of pollen that sent me into runny nose and sneezing until my nose was bleeding a bit. I went home, and that evening went to bed where we have been using the Levoit. I got a wonderful night’s sleep and woke up with no symptoms!” —jsmith
Promising review: “A few of my coworkers chipped in and bought our departmental mascot, whom we’ve dubbed ‘Larry’ the Llama. We love this little guy! And bonus: He’s quite functional. Our desks get pretty dusty, and Larry helps get all that muck off our desks. And he’s adorably handsome.” —Vegan-ish Mom Geek
You can reach up to 12 feet with this kit, which comes with three dusting attachments!
Promising review: “This is exactly what I needed to clean the vents on my ceiling! I needed a retractable duster that could store easily in our small apartment, but is also sturdy enough to reach 15 feet without being hard to control. With this product I can literally sit on my couch and clean the vent from across the room (only joking, but pretty impressed). The attachments all fit well on the pole, and the angle attachment is great since our ceiling is angled.” —Stephanie B.
Promising review: “I just cleaned all of my floors and I can’t believe how well it worked. Well worth the price, I initially bought it because I have a toddler and was fed up with all the harsh chemical cleaners, especially since much of the time they’re playing barefoot on the floors. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, I plan on making this my go-to cleaner.” —air217

Promising review: “Our tub/shower has a grippy bottom and scum and dirt cakes on there easily. It works amazingly! I sprayed it on and left it for about 15 to 20 minutes. Then I took a brush with hard plastic bristles (I believe a soft brush would have even worked) and with less than 20 minutes of scrubbing the entire tub and walls it was cleaner than when we moved in. The grime and scum almost like melted off.” —Amazon Customer

Promising review: “This is a fun and easy way to clean your microwave! All you do is put some water and vinegar to the fill lines and then put it in your microwave for seven minutes. I just tried it out on my microwave and it worked great.” —amyanothony
Promising review: “I bought this to help get some sticky junk left from Velcro on my motorcycle. I had tried rubbing alcohol and other tricks before using this stuff. Let me just say what a difference this stuff makes. All the sticky junk just wipes away on the first try. I didn’t need to soak it or anything. No residue was left behind at all and no damage to the paint. Best $8 I ever spent!” —Appleee
BuzzFeed writer Emily Shwake tried this stain remover and said “Afterward, there was still a faint outline of a stain on both the shirt and the carpet, so a few more applications might be necessary, but I definitely preferred this to any heavy-duty scrubbing that I would have otherwise had to do.” Read more of her WineAway review.
Promising review: “Amazing stuff that really works. I knocked over a full glass of red wine on a light carpet. Tried to use something else that made the stain much worse. We were out of town for a week and when I got back home, I tried this stain remover thinking it was too late for it to work. It literally made the stain disappear. So happy that I don’t have to live with that nasty stain another day.” —Linar
This cleaning tool works like a magnet and picks up fur from carpets, hardwood, and more surfaces.
Promising review: “Y’all. This broom changed my life. My dog sheds like crazy and I have tile throughout the majority of the living space in my home so I’m constantly having to sweep, Swiffer, vacuum, etc. to keep it hair-free. Well my friends, this broom darn well came close to getting all the hair off my tile, even did an amazing job getting hair off the rug. My mind is blown.” —samsamsurecan

Promising review: “I love this detergent so much! I almost didn’t buy it because I prefer the unscented, but decided to give this a try. It’s such a lovely and mild scent and it really cleans my clothes well. Favorite detergent by far!” —PUR Home Customer
Promising review: “”I love these sponges. I use them in the kitchen, the bathroom, and on the sides of the pool. But the use I like the best is to clean my vinyl wood floors. They get the spots and footprints off quickly without damaging the floor. I’ve use mops but they didn’t remove what everyone had tracked in without pressing down really hard. These work quickly and efficiently.” —D. Morales
BuzzFeed Editor AnaMaria Glavan loves this product and said “My dog has recently started to shed, and I am finding that all my clothes are covered in his fur. I had seen this pet grooming glove all over the internet, so I figured I’d give it a try. And boy oh good boy, it genuinely works. The glove is super comfortable and using it couldn’t be more foolproof: just put it on and run your hands through your pet’s fur. That’s it!” Read more of her pet grooming glove review.
Promising review: “These are awesome! The wipes are huge and tough, great for scrubbing!! I cleaned my whole house with these and they removed stains I haven’t been able to get out for awhile. Also, they smell fantastic, no chemical smell whatsoever.” —Suze
