Make mopping a breeze with this effective and efficient cleaning system. The triangular mop head allows for cleaning in hard-to-reach areas, while the easy-wring spin bucket puts you in control of the amount of water applied to the floor.

One Amazon reviewer says, “Okay, so ever since finding this mop on Amazon, I’ve been excited to try it. In a market of sub-par 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 5 minutes. LOVE LOVE LOVE! Please buy this mop!”

Shop Now

There’s no denying that Swiffer has made a major name for itself in the world of cleaning products. And for good reason! The dry cloths in this kit conform to surfaces and grout lines, tackling dirt, dust, and hair. The wet mopping cloths also trap dirt and grime and lock it away for good!

“Couldn’t live without my Swiffer, works great on the hardwood floors,” says an Amazon reviewer. “The dry cloths really pick up the dirt and all the pieces of crud brought in the house on the bottom of my shoes, even though I try to only wear “house shoes” when inside. I like that the bottom is hinged allowing you to push the Swiffer under thin spaces. I no longer use it wet, but it works just as well wet as dry.”

Featuring durable, high-quality nylon bristles that are great for scrubbing and cleaning fiberglass, porcelain, linoleum, tile and grout, this is one powerful cleaning product! The two-brush combo kit fits all cordless drills and impact drivers.

“For sixteen bucks on Amazon this is a total game-changer,” says an Amazon reviewer. “Since I purchased my home, the master shower has had stains in the grout and also on the shower floor that I have never been able to get out. It didn’t matter which cleaner I used or how hard I scrubbed. Nothing came out. It looked so disgusting that I started to feel like we were going to go through the expense of having the shower replaced. I bought this drill brush and I am amazed. It took me three separate times of cleaning my shower with this brush to get all the stains out. My shower is now spotless. Spotless people! I would recommend this in a heartbeat. Just make sure you have a good drill with a good battery.”

Scotch-Brite Non-Scratch Scrub Sponge


Shop Now

These non-scratch scouring pads can be used on all cookware to cut through stuck-on grime. Use the scouring pad side to cut through messes, and the absorbent sponge side for multiple uses. But you should still replace your sponge this often.

“I cook a lot. My husband bought me all stainless steal skillets about four years ago. I use the Scotch-Brite Non-Scratch Scrub Sponge at least three times a day every day cleaning those pots and skillets. I have never had a single scratch on any of them using the non scratch sponge,” says an Amazon reviewer. “Plus, instead of going through a box of steel pads weekly, this sponge outlasts all of them and saves me money.”

Professional Oven & Grill Cleaner

This heavy-duty formula is well-reviewed on Amazon for its extra power that cleans away even carbonized messes. The simple, ready-to-use formula works by emulsifying the baked-on grease, food, and spills, so you can simply wipe them away with a damp cloth. (Here’s how you’re using your grill wrong.)

“This product works great!” says an Amazon reviewer. “The longer you let it do its job the better! I have to just spray water and all the grime and sticky stuff washes away after letting it sit for 2+ hours. I’m very satisfied with this product!”

Scrub Daddy Temperature-Controlled Scrubber


Shop Now

This “as seen on TV” product is no gimmick! The Scrub Daddy features a unique scratch-free material, so you can scrub your heart out without harming various surfaces. The one-of-a-kind pores adjust to your water temperature to optimize scrubbing texture. The sponge becomes soft and squishy in warm water and firm in cold water.

“I absolutely LOVE Scrub Daddys!!!” says an Amazon reviewer. “I can’t say enough good things about this product. Firstly, I am the type of person who gets really grossed out by kitchen sponges. For whatever reason, these do not bother me! When run under cold water, the material is good for scrubbing stuck-on food. When run under hot water, they get soft and are great for general cleaning. I never have a problem cleaning them or with them smelling. For me, each one lasts about 3-4 months. After three months, they start to break down a bit. So this single pack should last you about a year! Great value, in my opinion. By the way, these can also be used for cleaning stove tops, counters, windows, etc. I used one to get dog saliva off a storm door. It was the only thing that worked!”

Mr. Clean knows no boundaries when it comes to yanking out built-up dirt, grime, and soap scum. Drench a Magic Eraser in water to activate the micro-scrubbers, and they will tackle impossible dirt around the house, reaching into surface grooves to make your countertops, shower, and more shine like never before.

“For years I have heard about the Magic Eraser,” says an Amazon reviewer. “From friends and family, even co-workers. Not sure what took me so long to try it out, but when I did, all I can say is ‘WOW’!!! I had embedded stains from makeup and who knows what on the bathroom Corian sink which I scrubbed with baking soda, even Softscrub with bleach, and the stains didn’t come all the way out. ONE TRY with the Magic Eraser and BAM! Stains gone. Then I decided to try it on the black toaster oven, where I accidentally left a loaf of bread, and the plastic melted into the top. I washed it, rubbed it, and used everything I could think of, but that thin layer of plastic wouldn’t budge. In comes the Magic Eraser and it came off right away. No kidding. The name says it all, because this stuff is truly magic!”

OXO Good Grips Dish Brush


Shop Now

Make cleaning dishes easier and more efficient with this OXO brush. It features a slip-resistant handle, an angled head and stiff, durable bristles that tackle all the nooks and crannies of your dirty pots, pans, and dishes.

“We went through multiple of those brushes with an integrated reservoir for soap,” says an Amazon reviewer. “They seemed nice but in practice, they ALWAYS wound up getting moldy over time since you couldn’t get them dry or clean the inside part. Then we got this simple brush and it is great. Durable enough to run it through the dishwasher to get clean (toss it in there once a week or so) but strong enough to really scrape off the worst of the muck. OXO always has a good handle so it’s easy to grip.”

I used other products all to no avail and was to the point of calling a plumber when I came across this product. I used half the bottle and within a couple hours the clog was totally gone and no evil odor. I highly recommend.”

The carpet looks amazingly clean.” Next, check out the germ-ridden spots in your bedroom.
