Thousands Of Reviewers Swear By These 25 Cleaning Products (And You Probably Will, Too)

    Including the stain remover one shopper called "liquid gold."

    1. A wow-worthy stainless steel polishing spray that won't literally leave sparkle emojis on your abused kitchen surfaces, but might come pretty darn close.

    Promising review: "I’ve tried many different stainless steel cleaners, and this one is the best that I’ve had. It makes my refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, and oven shine. Make sure you use a soft cloth, not paper towels, and go with the grain. I’ll be buying more." —Karen

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95 (or $18.95 with the Subscribe & Save option).

    2. Oh Yuk jetted tub cleaner, because bubble bath season is 365 days a year, IMHO. This will clean your jets in just 15 minutes and is named for exactly what you'll say when you see all the gunk that was hiding in them.

    It's from a family-owned, Minnesota-based company!

    Promising review: "Oh my gosh! You think your tub is clean and then you see what comes out with this! I followed the directions (fill tub over jets, pour in cleaner, turn on jets). Almost immediately, disgusting residue shot out. And then most came out as the chemical had time to circulate. So glad I got this cleaner instead of sitting in filth, especially because we just bought a new house and I thought, 'Maybe I should try to find out if there is a special cleaner for these tubs.' Glad I did and can know my tub is cleaned out." —Aaron Johnson

    3. The powerful Angry Orange pet odor eliminator necessary if you share your home with a stinky and accident-prone fur monster. In addition to banishing smells leftover from pet messes, this magic stuff can help with the stains, too!

    Promising review: "This product is amazing!!!! We have a Rottweiler pup and a Bichon pup and our house was feeling the PAIN! I tried everything and use to tell my wife, 'with all the science and technology in the world we still can’t come up with something that gets rid of the dog mark smell!' This product does everything and more. Just ordered another round. We were about to throw away some furniture due to the smell and now after use we can keep it. Saved me hundreds. Well worth the money." —clayton s tonkin

    Get it from Amazon for $15.97 (or $14.37 with the Subscribe & Save option).

    4. Or a multi-surface pet stain and odor eliminator that over 71,000 people (and presumably their mess-making furry friends) give 5 stars for banishing nasty stains.

    This stuff is from a small, family-run business, and you can use it on floors, clothes, carpets, furniture, and pretty much anything else. Check out BuzzFeed's full write-up on Rocco & Roxie stain remover.

    Promising review: "LIQUID GOLD. This is an exceptional product! We are an unofficial rescue home for dogs and cats. The latest dog is an 8-year-old Chihuahua, and she was not house trained because she had a doggy door that allowed her to go outside whenever she needed to. So during the transition period from untrained to at least my being trained to understanding her sign language, we have had our share of accidents. We also had some leftover stains from previous dogs in spite of our efforts with other cleaners. New or old urine, this cleaner is phenomenal. The stains sometimes disappear right in front of you. I have to mark the spot I am cleaning so I know where to go back to in order to apply the clean rag or towel to absorb any residual liquid. Don't know how many products we have tried. This is the very first one that deserved a 5-star review. So I just ordered the gallon bottle and will put it on Subscribe & Save as well. I highly recommend it. Obviously." —Gkayemarie

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97 (or $18.97 with the Subscribe & Save option).

    5. *OR* Sunny & Honey Carpet Miracle, a cruelty-free formula you can use in most any carpet cleaning machine to battle stains made by humans and pets alike. Your dog isn't the only one who sometimes has accidents, though yours are less the bathroom variety and more the spilling-a-full-glass-of-Merlot variety.

    It's from a family-run small business that specializes in cleaning products, especially ones for homes with pets!

    Promising review: "Worth every penny. I’ve bought this product so many times now I have it on autoship! Saw the reviews and figured I’d give it a try. My cat likes to pee over the litter box and stained the brand new carpet. I used this in my Bissell and it took all the stain and smell out!!! I’ll never use another cleaner." —Wendy

    6. Affresh washing machine cleaning tablets, which over 7,000 reviewers swear by for keeping their washer in great shape. The best part? You only need to use one about once a month!

    Just pop one into your empty machine, run a cycle, and let it do its thing!

    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

    Get a box of six tablets from Amazon for $11.95 (or $10.16 with the Subscribe & Save option).

    7. A trio of power scrubber brushes you can attach your drill and instantly create a super-powered deep-cleaning device.

    These are from a New York-based small business!

    Promising review: "These brushes are freaking fantastic. I tried them on a portion of my shower and bathroom floor tiles and grout. I immediately had to do the rest because it made the cleaner sections look dirty. I also tried it on the side of my fridge that is next to my stove top. It did a pretty good job there as well at removing grease and stains. The only downside is that it made me enjoy cleaning!" —Eric T. Ma

    Get it from Amazon for $18.95 (available in six colors, each with a different stiffness/purpose).

    8. Howard Feed-N-Wax Wood Polish and Conditioner, a beeswax and orange oil formula that's basically like a spa treatment for your wood surfaces. In addition to polishing, it adds a protective layer and helps prevent the wood from drying out or fading, so it's time to cue a rom-com makeover montage for your beat-up cabinet doors.

    Check out BuzzFeed's full write-up on this polish!

    Promising review: "I read about this in a BuzzFeed article, read the reviews, and looked at the images posted by reviewers. I figured why not. Our house is about 20 years old, and things are starting to just look worn. Add kids and a dog to the house, and you have plenty of scratched-up or water-stained wood. This is magic in a bottle! The wood was trashed, but now it looks brand-new." —ByteMe

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98.

    9. A handy toilet wand with disposable cleaning pads that'll make cleaning the john so much less gross, you'll actually DO IT for once, dammit. Reusing that toilet brush crusted with old who-knows-what? I'll pass, thanks.

    Because I mean actually, you DO know what's on that old brush.

    Instead having one toilet brush that you always reuse to clean the crap (sometimes literally) out of your toilet and then store in your bathroom to be used another day (ick), this lets you use dispose of the cleaning pad after each use. Just press the button on the handle, and it'll eject the pad right into the garbage! Plus, each cleaning pad is already loaded with Clorox Cleaner, so it's the only product you'll need. Check out BuzzFeed's full write-up on Clorox toilet wands.

    Promising review: "This is the best toilet cleaner EVER! It contains a cleaning product, plus the sponges conform to every bend in the toilet and work easily in the rim. It didn’t require any elbow grease either! I promptly threw away my top-of-the-line brush with its fancy under-the-rim attachment that never worked. I am 100% all about this." —Kingfisher

    Get the wand, caddy, and six cleaning heads from Amazon for $11.98 (or $11.38 with the Subscribe & Save option).

    10. Miraculous Folex instant carpet spot remover, which also works on upholstery to make stains do a Houdini-level vanishing act. Plus, it's odor free for scentsitive folks.

    Promising review: "Can I give it 10 stars? I'm really disappointed I lived without this product for so long. However, I have an overpriced wool carpet that my dogs have destroyed with accidents, bully sticks, and just general recklessness. I gave up on this rug ever being clean again. I've had it professionally cleaned and tried a dozen things myself...and no difference. And so I thought I'd try this assuming that it wouldn't work on the stain-determined rug but that'd I use it on my less tenacious ones. I sprayed it on, reading the instructions saying that I didn't need to scrub it, etc. And minutes later, freaking magic. My very pale-blue-and-white rug is virginal. I admit that I did rub it in a little on the harsher stains/discoloration, but there were plenty of areas that didn't require any follow up rubbing. I'm sincerely blown away and just ordered a second bottle. The price of this product is minimal if you're looking to make your rug/carpet like new again, so I would absolutely recommend trying it. I don't think I've ever been this impressed with anything I've ever purchased. I feel cheated for not knowing about this sooner." —bubbleslovesoap

    Get it from Amazon for $6.65.

    11. Washable microfiber mop pads that'll fit on your trusty Swiffer WetJet or similar mops so you can kick wasteful and pricey disposable pads to the curb. You'll be shocked — and perhaps horrified — by how much more ick they can pick up than the mop heads you have been using.

    One pad can last up to 100 washes and works on pretty much any surface, from wood to tile to stone.

    Promising review: "I wanted to reduce waste with disposable pads and I was pleasantly surprised by these. This photo was AFTER I cleaned the floor with the disposable pad! I was able to get a super clean floor, spots were easier to clean up, and it didn’t sound like it was scratching my floors. This was easy to use, didn’t use more cleaner then the disposable pads, and got my floor cleaner. Definitely gonna but more if the two I got ever wear out." —Riley

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $17.97.

    12. Durable all-purpose wipes made with aloe vera and vitamin E for everything from your hands to your car to tricky stains like grease, makeup, adhesives, and permanent marker. Paper towels are cancelled.

    Note that while these are great for messes and stains, they don't disinfect.

    Promising reviews: "These towels are awesome for so many things. They are large and very sturdy, so they work well for household cleaning. The real benefit for me, though, is having a wipe that works for things like the grill, the oven, the dashboard of my car, muddy shoes, chairs and umbrellas that go to soccer games and practices, and lawn furniture. I frequently wipe something down, rinse the towel, and wipe again. The wipes are heavy enough to go through three to four rinses and wipes and still hold up. The smell is mild and doesn't linger on my hands or what I've wiped down. I use these almost daily, so the 90-count canister lasts about three months and the last towel is never dried out when I get to it. The lid closes securely, yet is easy to open and the towels dispense easily through the opening without getting bunched up. Because the canister is heavier than most, and the lid fits well, it's easy to throw one of these in the trunk or cargo area, and I don't worry about it leaking. The canister (minus the lid) is recyclable when the towels are gone — an added bonus." —COMom

    "My son had painted on numerous different items in my house. I thought it was the end after trying baby wipes, Clorox wipes, and paper towels....I then tried these after a final act of desperation, and they wiped up the dried acrylic paint like it was butter!!!! 100,000/10 recommendation." —RyanH

    Get a pack of 90 from Amazon for $14.94.

    13. Wet & Forget shower spray, which'll revolutionize the way you clean your bathroom. True to its name, all you have to do is spray your shower or tub, let it sit overnight, and rinse it the next morning to reveal a cleaning miracle. It works so well, you only need to use it once a week!

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing! I had a horrible gray ring in the bottom of my shower that was impossible to remove. I had tried the Dawn dish soap method (with a lot of scrubbing) and had even used toilet bowl cleaner to try to remove the soap scum. My next step was to tear out and replace the shower pan and tile. I figured this was my last chance. I ordered the Wet & Forget spray and really coated the shower walls and floor pan and walked away. I CANNOT begin to tell you how happy I was to rinse down the walls sometime later and watch all that crud roll right down the drain!! This is the best product I have ever used in my life!! Works great and no toxic fumes!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.54+ (available in two scents).

    14. Microfiber cleaning cloths for anyone looking for a chemical-free and disposable-wipe-free way to clean glass. These only require water and are machine washable, but they'll get mirrors, windows, light fixtures, and any other glass surfaces in your home looking even better than their more traditional cleaning product counterparts.

    Just clean with one of the two included green cleaning cloths (damp), then dry with one of the six included blue cloths!

    Promising review: "Wonderful. I'm never using window cleaner and paper towels again for as long as I live!!! OMG, these things are a miracle. I've always hated cleaning my windows and shower because it was such a pain to get it streak-free, and I hated using rolls and rolls of paper towels to do it. After having cleaned the windows inside my car and doing such a poor job recently, I took my car to the car wash mainly to have them do that. As I was waiting for them to finish up, I started to wonder what they were using to clean the windows because they did it fast, left no streaks, and only used rags. I had used rags in the past with terrible results. When I got home, I started researching it and found these. They work unbelievably well, and I only have to use water??? Who would have known. I've used them on my shower, windows, glass, and even my stainless steel appliances. I hate cleaning my appliances!!! The only thing I ever found was polish, which was an absolute hassle and time consuming. Well, THIS WORKED FOR THAT, TOO!!! It was easy, only had to use water and gave an excellent result. I wish I had figured this out a long time ago and saved myself a lot of time and irritation." —Amazon Customer

    15. A tub of The Pink Stuff, aka an all-purpose paste you can use to scrub anything from cookware to cooktops and bathroom fixtures to rubber shoes shiny clean and free of stains. Just ~pink~ of all the icky things in your home you can finally clean with this stuff!

    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 $5.97 (or $5.67 with the Subscribe & Save option).

    16. A very helpful soap-dispensing dish brush to keep your hands far away from all the gunk and spare you from ever touching an icky sponge again. Forget reaching for multiple products — just grab this wonder and get all your plates, pots, and pans clean in a flash.

    I actually put this in my dad's stocking last Christmas, but it was a gift for the whole household. The handle is the perfect length and thickness to give you lots of control while keeping your hands clean, and the soap-dispensing button is so easy and satisfying. It does need frequent refills, but those are easy — just unscrew the handle! I also didn't even realize it has a built-in scraper on the end till just now, so I can't wait to try it out and potentially fall in love with this thing even more than I already have.

    Note that dish soap isn't included — you can get some here!

    Promising review: "The best dish brush! Bristles are tough but soft. They don’t break down over time easily. And they don’t scratch my dishes. Soap dispenser has a button to squirt out dish soap easily. Works well, every time. Biggest con for me is how little dish soap it holds. But then again, I’m known for using A LOT of dish soap so it’s partly my fault for using it all up so quickly. It’s a small con for me since this is easily my favorite dish brush I’ve had. I bought a second one and filled I with Dawn and white vinegar and keep it in my shower to clean as I shower. Super easy and doesn’t feel like a chore. Highly recommend!" —SMH1106

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    17. A Cerama Bryte cooktop-cleaning kit, which has everything you need to ensure that even the most stubborn stains left on your smooth-top range by messy cooks will be, well, cooked.

    It comes with a bottle of cleaner, a scraper, and a cleaning pad.

    Promising review: "I rarely write reviews unless something blows me away. I bought my house almost two years ago, and the cooktop has always been a bit dirty looking and it bugged me, but nothing I bought worked that well. I am so upset it took me so long to buy this product. My cooktop hasn’t looked this good, ever. I never thought I’d get it this clean and shiny, ever. I’ll admit it took a lot of elbow grease and time with the scraper to get the rings around the burners off. When I was done with that alone I was happy, and figured that was probably as good as it would get. Then I used the scrubber with the Cerama Bryte and it did wonders. When it got to the point of polishing with the paper towel, I was blown away. Check out the photos; it is night and day. I would recommend this product to anyone." —Lauren Langer

    Get it from Amazon for $13.78 (or $13.09 with the Subscribe & Save option).

    18. A paws-itively amazing rubber pet hair broom with a built-in squeegee designed to sweep up all that shedding (and even liquids!) like no other. It's def a must for anyone who ever has to clean up after their pet, but can be used on non-fur baby-related spills too.

    BuzzFeed Shopping editor Emma Lord swears by this to sweep up her *own* shedding hair. Check out her full hair remover broom review.

    Promising review: "LIFE CHANGER. We have two very floofy cats and I have long, thick hair, so needless to say there is a lot of shedding in our house. I could tell our vacuum wasn't quite doing the trick and I happened to stumble upon this item that looked to be the solution. WOW. First of all, it's a bit of a workout if you've got a medium-pile carpet like I do. I use short, firm strokes with the squeegee side and it pulls the hair up instantly. It's tedious work to do a whole room, but the satisfaction you get when you see all the hair makes it so worth it. Then you'll do a second pass in high-traffic areas and see how much MORE hair there is and wonder how you ever lived like that. Once you've got a nice pile, you can pick the clump of fur up by hand. I like to give it a quick vacuum after to get the dust and dirt that comes up. I haven't used it on our laminate flooring, but I'm sure that will blow me away too. This item is a complete must-have for anyone who owns a furry pet. This broom will absolutely outshine any expensive 'pet-rated' vacuum cleaner out there." —Leanna G

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (also available in a collapsible version).

    19. Amazing dishwasher cleaning tablets that are septic-safe, made for busting mineral buildup and odors, and beloved by over 45,000 (!!!) people. Because it's pretty nasty to think the machine you use for cleaning might itself be filthy.

    Just pop one in for a full cycle and let it work its magic. Plus, you only need to use it once a month, so a six-pack will last you a while!

    Promising review: "Worked very well! We’ve lived in our home a while, and small remedies haven’t done much to help clean the dishwasher. I finally decided to give a cleaner a try, and this one worked exceptionally well. The pics above are after one use of two packs (as per instructions for a particularly dirty washer). I'll definitely be getting more when I run out to help maintain a cleaner dishwasher!" —chocobeanie

    20. Pumie Toilet Bowl Ring Remover, aka a pumice stone with a handy handle sure to produce results that'll bowl you over, even if the rest of your fam is terrible about cleaning the toilet consistently.

    It's great for hard water marks in the tub, too!

    Promising review: "We rented a home and the toilets were disgusting. The picture above is after just five minutes with the stone. I had tried bleach, every toilet bowl cleaner available, and countless hours of scrubbing to no avail, but this stone worked instantly! I will be buying several more! The stone does dissolve when scrubbing so you need a couple. I was able to completely do almost two toilets that looked awful with one stone!" —CristaCross

    Get it from Amazon for $12.39 (or $11.77 with the Subscribe & Save option).

    21. Legend-wait-for-it-dary Goo Gone adhesive remover, which, well, gets goo gone! You know that tape or adhesive decor that *promised* it wouldn't leave residue but definitely lied? This'll banish said gunk for good, plus help you remove stubborn stickers as well as grease, glue, gum, wax, and crayon and marker marks.

    Promising review: "I bought this to deal with stickers that I cannot remove from my potted plants. I would try everything: warm water, scraping them off, etc., and there would always be a little stickiness left on the sides of the plant pots. The Goo Gone immediately removed all the offending sticker bits. I since have used it for a variety of things: removing stickers from shoes, various plastics, even glass. Where this product really came in handy in an unexpected way was cleaning the top of my kitchen cabinets. The previous homeowner had not cleaned the tops of the cabinets in the kitchen before moving, possibly ever, and there was a nasty, thick layer of grime coating the top that was composed of a mixture of dust & grease from cooking, among who knows what else. I tried cleaning it with a rag and Pine-Sol, hot water, Clorox wipes, etc. and nothing could adequately remove the layer of grossness. Finally, I had the bright idea to try this stuff, and it vastly improved the removal of gunk. After getting the main layer off, I was able to clean it with other cleaning products. Seriously, at least for that instance and general sticker removal from products, 5/5 stars." —FlowersInSpring

    22. An impressive leather cleaner to buy when every other method you've tried has come so close, yet ~sofa~ from getting the stains out of your beloved leather couch (or jacket, or purse, or office chair...).

    Get a brush to use with it here!

    Promising review: "I used this on my natural leather couch and wow! The results were amazing. This couch looks better than it did when I bought it new. Some reviews said the smell is bad, but it smells just like any other cleaner that doesn't have added fragrance. As soon as the solution dried, which took about 10 minutes, the smell was completely gone. I highly recommend this product if you have natural leather that you need cleaned." —Amanda Coffee

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (or $15.29+ with the Subscribe & Save option; available in three sizes).

    23. A hands-free wringer mop that makes the whole process of mopping less of a pain in the tush thanks to the foot-operated, oh-so-satisfying wringing feature. Plus, the microfiber heads help eliminate bacteria and are machine washable, so deep cleans can be easier, more efficient, and...maybe more fun?

    Plus it comes with two extra microfiber head refills.

    Promising review: "Ashamed to say, but I barely ever mop the floors. I purchased this O-Cedar mop and bucket based upon the great reviews. I am here to add a 5 star review of my own. This mop and bucket not only cleaned my floors, but it made the entire process easy (and dare I say fun?). I did the entire first floor of my house both tile and wood. Then wanted more fun, so I scooped up the handy handle and carried it upstairs where I continued on to the bedrooms and bathrooms. I don't want to go on and on, but this mop picked up lots of dirt and grime, then popped easily into the washer. It came out great. The swirly thing makes all the difference. It wrings out all of the excess water, so it's easy to mop without using too much muscle, which I do not have. And the mop heads are short, rather than long mop heads, which only make for heavier mops. If you're on the fence, go for it, you'll agree." —LauraP320

    Get it from Amazon for $48.27.

    24. Natural, cleansing, and odor-eliminating Bottle Bright tablets to make one of your least favorite chores — cleaning out your gross water bottle or travel mug — unbelievably easy, not to mention to eliminate coffee and tea stains in there you thought were permanent.

    Several reviewers also recommend this for stainless-steel coffee pots! All you have to do is fill your bottle with warm water, drop a single tablet in, and let it fizz the gunk away. The tablet dissolves completely, so once you dump out the water, you can use your bottle again right away! Check out BuzzFeed's full write-up on Bottle Bright.

    Promising review: "In all my years of attempting to remove the tea stains from my large white ceramic mug and metal tumblers, I have never come across anything as effective as this product; it is simply amazing (I wish I took before & after photos). I filled the mug with boiled water, dropped in a Bottle Bright cleaning tablet and let it do its magic. Within one hour the tea stains from the metal tumbler were lifted, literally, and floating. My white ceramic mug took a bit longer but the result was also absolutely perfect, as if both of these drinking containers were brand-new." —Bruce P. Starr

    25. An amazing car cleaner spray that works on pretty much every surface of your interior, from leather to plastic to vinyl to fabric to wood to rubber. Because your car is a mess, and the fewer products you need to clean it, the better.

    Promising review: "Seriously, what is this sorcery? I've had my car 10 years and have never thought to clean the upholstery and the infinite food/grease spills from tilted takeout boxes of authentic Mexican food. I embarrassingly got used to the way it looked until one day I cleaned my car really thoroughly and realized the seats were disgusting. So I tried the product. I cleaned small sections so it wouldn’t dry (with a scrub brush) and then used a few microfiber towels to wipe up anything remaining. It worked so well! No fumes." —KO

    Everyone being taken aback by these amazing cleaning results:
