There’s an oven gap cover for that!

Check out those and other products below to help upgrade your kitchen. 

A washable drip catcher
You'll no longer have a giant puddle at the back of your sink every time you wash some dishes.

Promising review:
"LOVE these splash catchers! They save me from having to chase the puddles that form around the base of our faucet before they start creeping over the counter. So reasonably priced, made well with neatly finished edges, and packaged with gift-ready care." — Alina

An Angry Mom steam cleaner
You simply fill her up with water or vinegar and pop her in the microwave for five to seven minutes while the steam does all the work for you.

Promising review: "I thought this might be a little gimmicky, but, I was willing to give it a try. I am glad I did! I barely had to touch the cleaning cloth to the walls of my microwave and the gunk just slid right off!" — W. Taylor

Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in four colors and a pack of two).
A washable, reusable sponge
It has scrubby mesh on one side and soft cotton terry cloth on the other. Plus, those prints are way more adorable than the green-and-yellow sponges you have in you sink right now.

Promising review:
"So glad I finally found an environmentally friendly sponge THAT WORKS! I tried all the other kinds of eco-friendly sponges before these - silicon (don't work on stuck stuff), vegetable fiber (got so mildew-y so fast), and even crocheted (felt so gross and didn't work great). These do the job and then after a few days I just throw them in the wash! Hooray! And they're cute!" — willowbe0416

PorterLees is a family-owned Etsy shop based in Portland, Oregon, that specializes in homemade reusable goods.

A gas range-cleaning spray
It'll cut through grime and grease and eliminate any evidence that your roommates are total slobs. Now I'm just projecting.

This stuff is THE TRUTH. My roommate is the best, but let's just say wiping down the stove after cooking is not one of her favorite activities. I'm not particularly fond of doing the dishes, so I guess we're even. Anyway, I spray this on a few times a week, let it sit for about five minutes, then wipe with a cloth. It removes EVERYTHING. Like, every little spot of caked-on grease and burned crumbs come off with just one wipe.

Get a two-pack from Amazon for $22.99.
A garbage disposal cleaner
It foams up to help break down any food residue that's been lingering in there for far too long.

Promising review:
"Seeing is believing. Not only does it do a great job, but you can see it happening. It doesn’t just mask the smell and leave a lemon scent like some products, it cleans too and looks fun. Idk. Blue foam comes out and that’s good enough for me." — sylvie yah

Get a two-pack of four-count bags on Amazon for $10.25.
A cleaning kit
It'll make your ceramic cooktop look as shiny and flawless as the day you moved in. The kit comes with a bottle of cleaner, a cleaning pad and a heavy-duty scraper that are all designed to break down burned-on foods and tough stains.

Promising review: "As soon as I used this stuff, I couldn't believe it! We had a new stove that I didn't clean for months and assumed the burnt pea juice (my enemy) would just be a new stain forever. However, after one application, it was basically gone. I used the scraper that came with it and did one more small application on just that spot, and it was gone! Every time I use this it looks like my stove could be brand-new." — Christi Lambertson

Get it from Amazon for $9.99.
A chainmail scrubber
Now you can effectively clean all of the burned-on grime on your cast-iron skillets without removing the seasoning or causing damage. It's also safe for use on waffle makers, griddles and casserole dishes, so you basically have no excuse for having less-than-immaculate dishes.

Promising review:
"Prior to purchasing this, our cast-iron cleaning routine consisted of rinsing followed by a quick scrub using coarse sea salt and a paper towel. This gadget is great for a more thorough cleaning, especially on stubborn areas. It's very effective and cleaning is quite easy, requiring nothing more than a quick rinse. The small ring attached to it is useful for hanging on a pot rack. Recommended." — Cooking the Books

Get it from Amazon for $10.98.
A handy brush
It will scrub every nook and cranny of your utensils.

Promising review:
"I bought this brush to quickly and safely clean knives and it works great for them, but I also use it to clean the sealing ring from my Instant Pot! Fast and easy!" — PrimeShopper

Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in two colors).
A simple but effective microfiber mop and bucket
It has a built-in wringer, because sometimes an old-school mopping can go a long way.

I've been using this regularly for the last six months and I never thought I'd be so impressed by something so seemingly boring. The foot-operated wringer is a life-saver for a lazy cleaner like me, and the microfiber mop dries quickly and stays fresh in between uses.

Get it from Amazon for $38.99.
An oven scrub made with gritty pumice stone
So you can really go to town on that lasagna that exploded and left a mess everywhere. It'll even clean all the hard-to-reach spots on your racks and oven door.

Promising review:
"Finally tackled the rings on our stove top with this scrub and a reusable paper towel (as I was worried about using a scourer on an easily scratched surface) and the rings came right off! These are those 'oh, crap, the pot boiled over' rings that I ignored that lead to my stove top looking a bit crusty. The oven scrub ate them right off and left my oven and stove top looking great." — Jessie Bono

Cleaning Studio is a small Etsy shop based in Fairfield, Connecticut, that specializes in cleaning products.

Get it from CleaningStudio on Etsy for $17.99+ (available in plastic or glass jar).
A set of "paperless" towels
They work just as well to clean your hands as they do to wipe up that glass of wine you spilled on "Bachelor" night.

Promising review:
"I love the charcoal gray towels I got so much I just ordered another set. I'm finding more and more ways to use them, instead of paper, every day: under draining fruits and vegetables, in the refrigerator where our freezer leaks, under my tea pot and compost container, at the master bath sink to wipe up after brushing our teeth and one has been designated as the 'water on the floor' towel. We have definitely cut down on our paper towel use." — katerhoad1

HammerThreadHandmade is a family-owned Etsy shop based in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Get a pack of seven from HammerThreadHandmade on Etsy for $37 (available in eight patterns).
A grout-cleaning kit
A sparkly clean floor can go a long way in revitalizing your kitchen. The kit comes with two bottles of Grout-Eez and a scrubber you can attach to a standard mop or broom pole.

Promising review: "This is an excellent product. I have tried several grout cleaners over the past 15 years since the majority of our flooring has been ceramic tile. This product surpassed all of them. In fact, nothing has ever worked this quickly. The three best features included (1) the instructions on both the bottle and with the product were clear and I followed them to a tee, (2) the perfect brush that came with it that fit perfectly into my grout lines and was easy to attach to an existing handle and (3) how easily the soil was removed from the grout. I would recommend using this around one tile first and definitely wait the 10 minutes then wiggle the brush in the grout lines. The soil comes up quickly." — Karen

Get a set from Amazon for $39.95.
A set of stove counter gap covers
You'd be surprised at how many stray crumbs make their way in that space between your stove and countertop.

These are heat-resistant up to 446 degrees F, so you don't have to worry about them melting while you cook. They're easy to wipe clean but you can also toss them into the dishwasher.

Promising review: "I can't believe how much crud I have cleaned out between my counter and my stove. This lays in the opening between the two so nothing gets down the space between. Just lay it down very easily, and it stays put. It looks like it is part of the stove. It is easy to clean; just wipe off when you clean the stove or counter. I have had no problem with melting as it is not on the burners, it is on the side of the stove. However, it is heat resistant, so the heat from the stove will not bother it. I would definitely buy this again." — Joanne

Get a set of two from Amazon for $9.95.
A soap-dispensing sponge holder
It'll save space and help you fly through your dishes in record time. Plus, it's so much more aesthetically pleasing than leaving a bottle of dish soap on the sink.

Promising review:
"Saw this soap dispenser on TikTok (like a bunch of other people did) and decided to get it and I LOVE IT! It's very practical and it doesn't take up too much space. I've only used it a couple times but I feel like it controls how much soap you use, preventing you from using too much." — Helena

Get it from Amazon for $7.99.
A genius brush and squeegee combo
So you can swipe all your countertop messes directly into the sink. It even has a built-in ledge so you can hang it when not in use.

Promising review:
"LOVE THIS PRODUCT! Saves me so many paper towels, easily washed in the dishwasher, and the small size saves space! Will always have one of these on hand for sure!" — Prime Time Review

Get it from Amazon for $8.99.
A clog remover
It will dissolve any built-up grease and food scraps — because no, your sink shouldn't take five minutes to completely drain.

Promising review:
"I had two drains in the house that were making the 'glug glug' noise when they drained. One in the bathroom sink where I shave, the other in the kitchen sink. Neither was blocked, but the noise indicated they were getting close. I'd tried to snake the kitchen sink myself, then had a professional do it. They said they couldn't get it through an elbow to get to where the partial blockage was. So, while they didn't charge me for it I was still stuck with 'glug glug' when the dishwasher drained or we used the kitchen sink. Green Gobbler down both drains and left overnight eliminated the 'glug glug.' I'm satisfied with the results. Much easier than snaking, and apparently more effective." —M

Get it from Amazon for $19.99.
A cooktop glass cleaner
Promising review: "My snowbird grandparents have been sending me to check on their summer home occasionally while they quarantine in Florida, so I've had the fun job of shoveling snow off their deck and finagling a million envelopes out of their overstuffed mailbox over the past few months. On my most recent visit I decided to stay for a few days, and was intent on cooking myself a lavish meal. Well, I've never really used an electric stove before and, I don't know WHAT I did, but there were giant streaks and marks all over it after I was done. I tried everything to get them off, and I am definitely NOT overreacting! I finally mustered up the courage to tell my grandparents I ruined their stove, only for them to break out in laughter. Grandma instructed me to use get this cleaner below the sink and, well, the rest is history. It literally wiped the streaks away before my eyes. Magic." — Griffin Gonzales

Get it it from Amazon for $8.59.
A granite and stone cleaner
It will have your countertops looking ready for the pages of Architectural Digest — but it'll also kill 99.9% of germs and bacteria.

Promising review:
"This is my go-to granite cleaner and I’ve tried a lot! Actually gets counters clean without a film or streak and not a lot of elbow grease." — Lori

Get it from Amazon for $6.18.
Or a descaling solution
It'll break down all of the limescale buildup inside your electric kettle or coffee maker, because I regret to inform you that the interior also needs cleaning. If your coffee just isn't hitting the spot like it used to, it's probably time to run a cleaning cycle.

Promising review:
"I had never even thought of descaling my 2-year-old Keurig before Amazon suggested it, but this stuff was cheap, I knew I was supposed to descale regularly, and I knew this kind of descaler wouldn't be as hard to rinse out as the smell of vinegar. I honestly wasn't expecting much, but the next morning it took much less time for the water to heat up and my coffee tasted twice as strong and rich as it did before descaling, which means the brewing temperature is higher now that the heating element isn't caked with mineral deposits. Now I feel a little silly for drinking mediocre coffee for so long." — Lenore

Get a pack of two from Amazon for $13.99.
A set of cleaning K-Cups
They remove all of the built-up grime in your Keurig machine. You'd be surprised how much coffee residue and old coffee grinds can get stuck in the dispenser.

Promising review:
"I bought this product because the needle in my Keurig 2.0 keeps clogging, causing inconsistent brew and taste. These cleaning cups fixed both of my issues and I especially liked that it was really quick and easy to use… I put the cleaning pod in and ran one cycle, then took the pod out and ran a rinse cycle to clean out any leftover grinds. FAST, EASY, and GREAT results…VERY HAPPY!!" — Corey West

Get a pack of six from Amazon for $9.95.
An extremely popular oven cleaner
If you still have some caked-on nastiness in your oven from Thanksgiving, it's time to add to cart.

Promising review:
"Oh man, this stuff is awesome! I sprayed and left it on overnight. I had no idea what to expect. I took a paper towel and started wiping out the oven. The grime just melted away. It was awesome!" — KsGrl444

Get a pack of two from Amazon for $22.97.
A pack of stainless steel wipes
Tackle any pesky fingerprints and practically transform your refrigerator doors into shiny mirrors.

Promising review:
"I love this product! It is so easy and convenient to use. I can get by using only one or two of the wipes for all the appliances and stainless steel items in my kitchen. It removes all smudges and leaves a nice even shine everywhere." — Gloria S.

Get a two-pack of 30-count tubs on Amazon for $16.23.
A steam mop
It'll get rid of any sticky messes and eliminate 99.9% of germs and bacteria without using harsh chemicals.

Promising review:
"I've had this floor mop/steamer for a couple of months now and I absolutely love it! I can't believe the dirt that is picked up off my tile floors, even after vacuuming and wet mopping all surfaces. The steamer is extremely easy to use and heats up quickly." — GCC

Get it from Amazon for $89.
An inexpensive but super effective disinfectant spray
This will definitely come in handy when you need to mindlessly clean your kitchen after a long day.

Promising review:
"First, I loooooove the smell. It's so good. Next, this stuff eats up gunk and grease like a mofo. I cook and I get all these gnarly food smells in the kitchen that don't go away. This ate all of them right on up. It cleans all the grease out of my stainless steel sink. I put some on a paper towel and ran it across some caked up enchilada sauce on the counter. I didn't even have to scrub. The stain just came up." — Bye Felicia

Get it from Amazon for $3.77.
A 20-pack of cleaning erasers
They are more affordable than name brands but still ... um ... magic, if you catch my drift. These little sponges use just water to lift away tough stains — and the results are downright therapeutic.

Promising review:
"These babies have transformed and reformed my slobby life. My dog sitter thought I got a new sink and fridge. I have never had more fun cleaning in my life — wait, I have never had any fun cleaning. But these magical creatures make it so freaking satisfying. No toxic stuff. No fumes. Just heavenly cleanliness." — Jimmy Jim Ereeno

Get a pack of 20 from Amazon for $9.95.
A scrubbing sponge
It's not only ridiculously cute but also changes texture based on the water's temperature. It stays firm with cold water for heavy-duty scrubbing, but gets softer in warm water for lighter cleaning tasks.

Promising review:
"They remove food off of dishes more easily than a sponge and I just throw them in the top rack of the dishwasher and they come out spotless! They never smell and always rinse out nicely in between washings. These little gems even take off hard water build up from my shower doors! (I also use regular cleaners with them to do the trick.). I love these so much I bought a bunch and used them as stocking stuffers last Xmas! Everyone loves them!" — DivaGranny

Get a pack of three from Amazon for $9.99.
A pack of cleaning tablets
Your dishwasher is probably way dirtier than you imagine. These will break down lime and mineral buildup so your dishes come out looking as sparkly as they do in all those dish soap commercials.

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 saw a product test review for Affresh in Good Housekeeping magazine. I was ordering some stuff from Amazon anyway, so I added that to my order. I did not expect the results I got! The glassware that I thought was permanently etched and ruined came out like new. Same with cutlery. The difference is unbelievable. I am amazed!" — Sheila

25 Things You Need If You've Basically Never Cleaned Your Home Correctly
A broom and dustpan set(01 of 25)
You have to use something to pick up the bits of pasta, strands of hair and dust bunnies that afflict your kitchen floors — and some would argue that a broom and dustpan like this is your best bet. The dustpan features a row of useful teeth to help extract any debris that the broom won't let go of, so you don't have to bend down and mess with the broom when it stubbornly grabs a clump of hair.

Promising review: "The best broom and dustpan set I have ever purchased. After researching numerous possibilities, this is the broom that won. I have a shop with old wooden floors with lots of space between the old wood planks. The bristles pick up everything between the planks. The rubber lip of the pan is flush with the floor and the teeth clean out the bristles perfectly. I was so happy that I bought another for my home and a third for the shop. This set costs a bit more, but in my opinion was well worth the price." — Carol

Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

And a handheld broom and dustpan(02 of 25)
Sometimes you just spill a little bit and don't feel like pulling out the big set. The brush easily snaps into the handle for simple storage, too!

Promising review: "My dustpan brush broke and in the search for a new one, I found this one. I didn't think I'd be saying this about an ordinary dustpan but this one is the real deal. Its material is well made, the brush handle is comfortable and there are even the spikes on the pan to separate the hair from the brush. It also gets into the hard corners. The best dust pan and brush out there!" — QueenB

Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

A telescoping microfiber flip mop(03 of 25)
Perfect if you have wood, tile, laminate or linoleum floors. The blue side picks up some dirt, dust and hair (completely dry), then the white side uses water to wipe up even more stubborn gunk.

Promising reviews: "Awesome, easy way to clean hard floors. A dry mop that removes dust, dirt, and hair more efficiently than sweeping. Hair sticks to this and unlike sweeping, it doesn't just move the dirt/dust around. Once I was done cleaning my large kitchen and tiny bathroom, I just shook out the debris over the outdoor trash can. Works great and definitely more cost-effective than a Swiffer and more maneuverable than my Dyson vacuum cleaner." — K Lawson

Get it from Amazon for $19.79.

A powerful but inexpensive vacuum cleaner(04 of 25)
Is there a perfect vacuum? Probably not, but this one has lots of great reviews, passes ReviewMeta, and is under $100! Plus it'll do a better job on wood, tile and other hard floors than a broom or dust mop would — and with less effort.

Promising review: "Have long hair? Have you killed other vacuums with your (slightly worrying amount) of shedding? Then look no further. We bought a canister vacuum a year ago, and it didn't take long for my long hair to just kill the little vacuum. Now, we have this vacuum and our apartment is actually clean because my hair is not too much for it. The bristles have grooves that prevent hair from caking on it, and it's very easy to clean. The brushes are also adjustable, so you can really get into the carpet if you want. It's also pretty light for something so heavy duty. I also love that all of the attachments stay on the vacuum, and I don't want to look for that hand attachment. For the price, it's a great vacuum and would really work if your place isn't very big, as the cord isn't super long." — J. Haller

Get it from Amazon for $99.99.

And a carpet-freshening powder(05 of 25)
It'll deodorize the rug in your open-to-the-kitchen living room that has absorbed several years worth of cooking smells. Pardo Naturals is a Black-owned, woman-owned business specializing in products for people with issues related to sensitive skin.

Get it from Pardo Naturals for $9 (available in four scents).

A pack of reusable microfiber cloths(06 of 25)
You could use an old cotton T-shirt — cut out rectangular rags if you feel inspired — or a simple cotton washcloth to clean surfaces in your home. But microfiber cloths will hold up wash after wash, won't leave lint or streaks behind, and will help remove dirt and grime with less elbow grease on your part.

Promising review for the microfiber cloths: "These cloths are truly lint- and streak-free. I’ve already used these cloths to clean my stove, dust my entertainment center, and wipe my bathroom fixtures and mirrors. All sparkling clean without any streaks or lint. So glad I found these. I’ll be putting one in every room for quick access." — FairGamer

Get them from Amazon: the pack of eight cloths for $15.99, and a pack of three of Mrs. Meyer's multisurface everyday cleaners for $11.49+ (available in five scents).

A glass cooktop cleaning kit(07 of 25)
It's packed with everything you need to shine up even the messiest burner so it gleams like it did the day you moved in.

Promising review: "I hadn't thoroughly scrubbed my glass cooktop in years, only wiped down with random multipurpose cleaners which never seemed to do much. Then a friend recommended this product... AMAZING! The included scrubbers and scrapers really make the difference. As others have said it will leave your cooktop shiny and new... Even marks that had been on there for years came almost completely off... 98% better. The key is to use very little product. Let it dry to a haze and buff with a clean dry cotton towel, just like waxing a car." — B. Swartwood

Get it from Amazon for $9.69.

A bottle of BarKeeper's Friend(08 of 25)
It can make so many things in your kitchen look like new again: stained pots and pans, dull and scratched ceramic sinks, tarnished metal, rusty-looking stainless steel and more.

Promising review: "I was so bummed when I scratched up my pretty white sink with pots and pans. I thought I'd need to have it replaced but I bought this stuff as a last ditch effort to fix it. It takes some elbow grease, the scratches don't just wipe off, but if you scrub them for a few minutes they melt away pretty quickly. After two rounds my sink looks nearly brand new again. It also worked on a few mineral stains in my bathtub that I thought were permanent. Again, a little of this stuff, the scrubby side of a blue sponge, a little bit of effort and they were gone!" — Dan Borden

Get it from Amazon for $17.62.
(credit: Amazon)
A bottle of no-odor gel mold and mildew cleaner(09 of 25)
It sticks to your tile grout and caulking, giving it the time it needs to do its job: banishing the grossness like it was never there.

Get it from Amazon for $12.99.
(credit: Amazon)
A pack of three disposable drain snakes(10 of 25)
They reach deep into your pipes and pull up that slimy hair monster that has been blocking your tub and sink from draining freely.

Promising review: "I saw these featured on BuzzFeed and have been unsuccessfully through so many rounds of chemicals in my sink drain that I figured I might as well try it. IT COMPLETELY FIXED MY DRAIN IN LESS THAN A MINUTE. I was about to call my landlord. I wish I had known this sooner. Why we have all been pouring terrible chemicals into our drains and environment is beyond me. Bonus... I rinsed the first one off and am pretty sure I can use it again, so I consider these reusable." — Geneveive

A high-quality toilet brush(11 of 25)
It's the easiest way to keep your commode from getting gross. The canister this comes with opens automatically when you lift up the brush, then closes when you set the brush back down. Use it with a toilet cleaner ($11.99 for two), and after you're done scrubbing, trap the brush under the seat so it can drip-dry into the toilet before you put it back in the canister.

Promising review: "Big fan of these toilet brushes. I bought two (one for each bathroom) and I love the clean and simplistic look. My housekeeper works in an upscale resort and said she likes mine way better than the ones they use in the hotel. They are easy to take out, and easy to put back in — it's a very well designed product. I also love that the brush and the handle are one piece. I've had brushes before where the head kept falling off. This brush is very sturdy and you can use a good amount of force to scrub (if needed)." — Patrick Reiner

Get it from Amazon for $15.99.
(credit: Amazon)
And a stamp-in gel(12 of 25)
After your toilet's clean, this will KEEP it clean — no need to scrub on a regular basis. Just press it beneath the rim and let it do all the work. You'll have to re-stamp every 12 days or so, depending on how often that toilet gets flushed. (Pro tip: Make sure to stamp it somewhere in the bowl it won't, erm, become a "target" and get sprayed off before its time.)

Promising review: "These are amazing and I'm bummed I haven't tried them until now! Warning: possible TMI ahead! We're big fans of the 'if it's yellow, let it mellow' potty practice in our home as it conserves a serious amount of water if you flush every 3-4 tinkles vs every time....anyways! We used to use the Clorox pucks in the toilet tank, however a recent move to a home with very hard water has rendered our beloved Clorox tabs useless and I found myself scrubbing our toilets every few days. These little gems are easy to use and with our limited flushing, one application tends to last around two weeks before it starts to lose its smell and effectiveness. But it kept our bowls clean and the bathroom smelling fresh." — Stephanie

Oh, and a pumice stone scrubber(13 of 25)
So you can tackle built-up hard water stains no toilet brush could stand a chance against. You just wet the stone a little, then scrub away to watch it work its magic!

Promising review: "I have a 19-year-old master bathroom toilet that had accumulated some nasty stains over time which regular toilet brushes and cleaning products just would not remove. Pumice stone worked like a charm! Given the nature and severity of the stains, it required some elbow grease, but 10 minutes later I have a new-looking bowl, and I see no signs of scratching. Am very happy with this purchase...well worth the very low price!" — Happy Retiree

Get it from Amazon for $8.99.
(credit: Amazon)
A pack of five hydrogen peroxide-infused toilet bombs(14 of 25)
With regular use, these completely eliminate the need to scrape with a pumice stone at all. All you have to do is drop one in the bowl, swish once or twice, let it fizz for about five minutes, then scrub for a minute or so with a toilet brush. Juniperseed Mercantile is a Littleton, Colorado-based small business with a passion for great skin care, simple living and the earth.

Promising review: "This is my second purchase of theses so you can tell I totally love them. They work great and I just store them in a jar on the back of the toilet. Definitely can't say I’ve ever stored any other toilet cleaner out in the open." — Laura Wick

Get them from Juniperseed Mercantile on Etsy for $10.

A telescoping tile brush(15 of 25)
The handle extends from 26 inches to 42 inches, meaning you can reach all the corners of your bathroom without teetering on the edge of your tub.

Promising review: "Makes cleaning so much easier! We have a small walk in shower and it is difficult to get in the corners to clean without getting on your knees. With this I can remain standing and reach everywhere in the shower. I've recommended this brush to friends and neighbors (we are getting to a certain age) and it's been very helpful. Being a OXO product it's very good quality." — Linda L

Get it from Amazon for $15.99.
(credit: Amazon)
A carpet and upholstery stain remover(16 of 25)
So you can extract all kinds of dirt, rust, grease, food and other stains that you haven't been able to get out with literally anything else.

Promising reviews: "Fantastic product and does what it promises. I had purchased several cleaning products to remove a stain from my mattress from my dog vomiting. This is the only one that got it out. I now keep this in my cupboard at all times." — Book Bandit

Get it from Amazon for $11.97.
(credit: Amazon)
A soft cleanser(17 of 25)
With very little elbow grease, this will eliminate years of built-up hard water stains on tile or glass, truly transforming your shower right before your eyes.

Promising review: "Like a hot knife through butter for built up hard water stains on my glass shower doors. I've tried everything and this stuff worked in two minutes. Made me a little embarrassed it took so long to find something so effective. I haven't tried it on anything else yet but I guarantee I'll be reordering just to have extra. Just can't have enough of a good thing." — Ron

Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

A pack of Magic Eraser bath scrubbers(18 of 25)
Scrub out every last bit of grime and soap scum from your tub and still have energy left to keep cleaning — or just enjoy life! — when you're done. These bath scrubbers are like an ~upgraded~ version of the classic Magic Erasers: They're infused with a water-activated foaming cleanser that makes the job of scrubbing soap scum even easier.

Promising review: "We have a rental property and the tenants trashed the house. I went to clean up and brought these along. The bathroom was in really bad shape, and I gagged for a portion of my scrubbing. But these worked wonders. I'd say that they probably cut my cleaning time in half. Water stains, grime, whatever it was that those tenants left on the floor near the left everything looking as brand new as it could. Saved me a lot of time and headache. Highly recommend these little guys.... They pack a punch!" — Crista Nalezny

A jetted tub cleaner(19 of 25)
Scientifically engineered to eradicate the years of grimy buildup you didn't even realize was lurking in the pipes.

Promising review: "It's disgusting to see what comes out of your jets when you use this product. I can't believe we bathed in this! I've run bleach and dish detergent through my jets before, and that combination never cleaned with this efficiency. I highly recommended this product." — Amazon Customer

A pack of six dishwasher tablets(20 of 25)
Running even just one cycle with a tablet will eliminate any buildup in your dishwasher *and* those stains it keeps leaving on your clean dishes.

Promising review: "Started getting white streaks all over my dishes. That never happened before. Thought it was my detergent and changed it, but no difference. Clean dishes with this weird white film on them. Wash them by hand, then put them back in the dishwasher, and white film again! Then I did an internet search to figure out what was going on (a dishwasher is an incredibly simple piece of machinery.) Found this! Bought it. Used it. Dishes are clean again!" — Carey Holzman

A daily granite cleaner(21 of 25)
So you can shine up any stone countertops you happen to have around your home, because some all-purpose cleaners (and anything with vinegar in it) can etch and damage the finish.

Promising review: "I use it daily since I have a black counter top that always looks dirty. This stuff is good — the best I have found — but it does require applying it correctly. I use a paper towel to spread on when wet and immediately wipe with a microfiber towel to dry. When I don’t do that it leaves streaks which are easy to see on my black countertop. Sometimes I keep the damp paper towel in case the streaks stay, to just 'rewet' an area before drying with a microfiber. Overall when done my countertop looks great!" — Mrbadass

An extendable microfiber duster(22 of 25)
It will help you reach your highest ceiling fans and the tops of cabinets without lugging out the ladder or pushing chairs around. Its three expanding sections reach up to 64 inches — that's 5 feet! — so basically nothing will be out of your reach. You simply rinse the microfiber head clean when you're done using it (one reviewer suggests spinning it between your hands after it's dry, to fluff everything back out), plus the entire thing folds in half for easy storage. And its fluffy dusting head collapses easily to reach into small nooks and crannies.

Promising review: "I'm not a neat freak so I never thought I'd be saying I love a duster, but when I use this I feel like it's one of the best things I've ever bought. I'm only 5'2" tall so I need the extra length even though I don't have high ceilings. It's nice to be able to use it at different angles as well as bend the duster part itself. Plus it's really easy to adjust.

I think the people that say the head spins as they use it haven't tightened the silver piece that prevents that from happening. Yes, some dust goes into the air, but hardly any and you can see you're picking up a lot by how dirty it gets. I don't it wash it every time, usually just take it outside and shake it out and clean it off with my hands." — cologirl

A bottle of Goo Gone(23 of 25)
It's essential if you have to tackle sticky substances like tape residue, old stickers (including bumper stickers), glue stains and dried bits of that slime kids love so much.

Promising reviews: "This stuff is amazing. So far, I have used it to remove heavy adhesive from a tile floor where we had previously had an adhesive cover for a wire running across the area. I applied Goo Gone, scraped the majority of the adhesive and fibers off, then wiped off the remaining residue with a paper towel.Additionally, I used it to clean grease off of wood veneer cabinets using a paper towel, and it was so effortless! We have a microwave above the stove, and I also used Goo Gone to clean grease from the exhaust vents, which was so much easier than ever before." — Cass

A finish restorer(24 of 25)
Designed to eliminate heat rings, water marks, scratches, color fade, oxidation and more from your favorite wood furniture — or even your wood kitchen cabinets. For minor stains and discoloration, it's a simple wipe-on, wipe-off process you can do in just a couple of minutes. You may have to put more time and effort into the worst cases (like the one pictured here), but reviewers swear it's worth the work.

Promising review: "It's not magic or a miracle cure all, but it really worked well removing some BAD heat circles on a used coffee table a friend game me. This product requires work. I found I got the best results using 0000 steel wool and getting a fresh piece rather often. It takes some scrubbing but it's so much less work than stripping, sanding, pre-treating, staining, and lacquering. Vigorous scrubbing (WITH the grain) will also remove some shallow scratches and swirls. I have included some pictures of my results, before and after. It took me about 90 minutes to scrub and wipe down my coffee table with more than adequate results." — Raymond J. Rathburn

Get it from Amazon for $14.65+ (available in nine colors, and two sizes). For a finishing step, you can also add on the same brand's polish and conditioner, $8.48 on Amazon.

A wine-stain remover(25 of 25)
It'll make even dried, set-in spills vanish completely after just a spritz or two.

Promising review: "I fell in love with this product some 15 years ago, and I am so very happy that it's still available in the same wonderful formula as ever. I have seriously poured red wine over a white comforter to demonstrate how great this is to a friend once. It is a miracle in a bottle! We use it for all sorts of cleaning on materials around the house, and one bottle has last us years! This is definitely a product every home should have." — Melanie Nolen
