1. A ball of slime putty that’s really fun to play with—but don’t forget to use it to clean up anything with lots of nooks and crannies.

Promising review: “I was skeptical at first. I was afraid my keyboard would be all gummed up with yellow slime! The opposite, it cleaned it as good as new. Got all those dog hairs between the keys! No smell lingering on the keyboard or my hands. No sign I even used it except a clean keyboard. Kind of fun to play with. LOL.” —ZZZZZ

2. A tube of Grip Clean, a Shark Tank-famous product that’ll cut through grease, oil, ink, odors, and more — without relying on harsh artificial ingredients. It’s made natural ingredients like coconut and olive oils, so even those with sensitive skin can use it regularly suffering from dry, cracked, or irritated hands.

Promising review: “I work for the railroad and I am always getting my hands dirty! I could never seem to find anything that worked. Also, I live in Utah so when it starts getting cold my hands dry out. Well, with Grip Clean that doesn’t happen! I have my coworkers coming to my locker asking to get some soap since the soap we have at doesn’t work as well as Grip Clean!” —Nick

3. A dog paw-cleaning device to keep Spot’s feet squeaky clean, because you can’t exactly put hand sanitizer on a dog. (Seriously, do not do that.)

Promising review: “Best. Thing. Ever. This product works like a charm. It gets the sand from between their pads, and is gentle enough that even my most stubborn pup tolerates it! I have a terrier/schnauzer who likes to dig, a mini golden doodle who is prissy about her paws and a standard Labradoodle puppy who is still very fuzzy. We have a farm where it is extremely sandy and we stay in a travel trailer. The amount of sand they were tracking in to the camper was ridiculous. It takes me three minutes to clean and dry off all of their paws. Seriously the best purchase I have made!” —Rachel

Promising review: “I bought this as a little gift for my husband. I thought it was kinda cool and he would enjoy. He loves it and shows everyone that comes over. They install very easily, and the bottles stick well. The magnetic is so strong it draws the bottle up when you get close, but it’s still easy enough to pull the bottle off when needed. I would recommend these to anyone. They are a bit expensive but well worth the money. Great gift idea!” —Christine

Promising review: “This is amazing and I have no idea I didn’t buy one of these years ago!!! My new stove wouldn’t get close enough to the wall to allow me to rest anything on top without it falling behind. This was absolutely PERFECT. I am very happy that the magnets provided were able to be moved. This allowed me to place them perfectly for maximum hold because my top was slightly curved.” —JStill

7. A tea bag organizer to bring order (and space) to your packed cabinets.

Promising review: “Do I really need a tea bag organizer? That’s what I was thinking when I ordered this. And when I took it out of the box. And when I filled the first little bag holder. But as the pile of empty boxes grew larger, I knew the answer was yes, I do need a tea bag organizer. I was using a whole shelf and a half for jumbled tea boxes which I had to sift through to look for a specific tea. In the end, I think this held about eight or nine boxes of tea bags (I crammed some of them). I am so happy that I got this!” —Sarah C.

Promising review: “I thought my hard water stains would never come off my shower doors, but I bought this awesome brush set, and it’s amazing! I’ve tried all the hacks — drier sheets, clean erasers, lemon, vinegar — nothing works like this brush! I used Zep shower cleaner with it!

Promising review: “These are nice pieces that helped me organize underneath my bathroom sink! They fit perfectly! After organizing everything, I was so surprised I had so much more room that I grabbed more items out of the linen closet to fill it up. I still have a lot of room left.

I have used at least three different vacuums and attachments. Lately I have been using a microfiber towel because it had some grip. Then this piece of magic arrived. It gets every single hair no matter how embedded. There were hairs I had a hard time removing with my fingers. The Fur-Zoff pulled them right out. This has cut my hair removal time in half! Thank you for this savior of a tool.” —David R.

Promising review: “This is a wonderful product. I have an older dog who can’t always wait until I get home from work so accidents occasionally happen. I have a Hoover Rug Scrubber and this product is very easy to use with my machine. Carpet Miracle works amazingly well on stains and odors, even those that have set for a while. I did the carpet in the ‘room of shame’ twice just to be sure, although for normal soil and odors once should be more than enough. It leaves behind a wonderfully clean, fresh scent, and the carpet feels and looks wonderful. I plan on continuing to use this product to keep my carpets clean and my home smelling fresh.” —Vicky Faurot

Promising review: “The only review you need to read! So I debated HARD about buying these and now I’m sad I didn’t buy the four-pack. I got the two-pack because I wasn’t sure these would work on my Swiffer WetJet. HUNNY THESE BAD BOYS ARE THE EFFING BEST THING ON AMAZON! Buy them. Buy them right now. I literally JUST used these to swiffer my bedroom and bathroom. These stuck to my swiffer so well I had to nearly pry them off once I was done. They are so absorbent. I swear those disposable pads will never be bought ever again. I am ordering more of these pads. They even came with a lovely handwritten note from the lady who owns the company. Honestly I have no idea why I waited so long. This was the best Swiffering ever. My floors seriously look cleaner. 20 stars.” —ElleSoFresh

These work on almost any surface: leather, fabric, furniture, hardwood, pans, metal, WHEREVER. And they’ll clean up grease, oil, tar, dirt, ink, lipstick, nail polish, food, and a whole lot more.

Promising review: “I wasn’t expecting much from these, but I’m pleasantly surprised. I work on cars a lot, and I don’t like wearing latex gloves like so many others do. As a result, my hands get DIRTY. I usually use the orange stuff, but I got tired of the grit and having to wipe it off with paper towels (I don’t have a sink within easy reach). So I thought I would try out these cleaning towels. I have to say, I’m impressed! They don’t have any ‘grit’ on them per se, but they are just rough enough that they easily scrape off whatever grease I have on my hands. I’m sold on these.” —thatguy

Here’s what you do: Run some hot water, pop one of the packets in your disposer, let it foam, then wait for the foam to fully disappear. Garbage disposer = clean and ickiness free.

Promising review: “WHERE HAS THIS BEEN ALL MY LIFE???! Holy cow, I didn’t realize how easy and quick it was to clean a garbage disposal until I bought this product! Typically, I’d just use vinegar and baking soda down the drain and call it good. I didn’t know that there was an actual disposal cleaning product available until I stumbled across it through a BuzzFeed article. I had to try it. The instructions are very simple. It literally takes five minutes and some hot water and VOILA! you have a clean, no-longer-stinky garbage disposal. Any time I got a whiff of an odor, all I did was drop one of these packs in the disposal and the smell was GONE! Plus, the blue foam bubbling in the sink was amusing to watch. Worth every penny!!” —VadersGirl

Promising review: “My 15-year-old leather sectional hadn’t been cleaned or conditioned in three to four years because I couldn’t find anything that worked well without causing it to look blotchy. The color was also fading and I thought it was a goner. After some elbow grease, the sectional looks great! It’s now back to its original color without being blotchy. More importantly, the suppleness has returned. I can actually say that it looks as good as the day we bought it.” —jellybean55

The Hoot is a Black woman-owned small business. 

You know that refreshing feeling you get after a deep clean at the dentist? That’s how I feel about my home after using this spray. The peppermint smell is so invigorating and makes everything smell fresh. It cuts through grime and dust with no problem, and I think might actually scare off mice (rodents hate minty smells). The sprayer works well, and the bottle is even made from recycled plastic. This “eco-friendly” brand was started by Tonya Newsome, a professional cleaner, who noticed traditional cleaning solutions made with harsh ingredients were causing skin irritation and respiratory issues. Newsome decided to make a cleaner that’s just as effective but without SLES and SLS (both known to cause irritation and allergic reactions for people with sensitive skin). I have to say, it’s really nice to use a cleaner that works but doesn’t give off unpleasant fumes or put my dog at risk. If you’re looking for a multipurpose spray that smells like a nice piece of gum instead of the bottom of a swimming pool, try it out!

Promising review: “We moved out of state into an older home. Unsure about the cleanliness of the jetted tub, we used this product for the first time because of its customer rating. We ran it for 15 minutes in hot water, rinsing and cleaning out the tub afterwards. I was shocked at how much crud and disgusting filth was kicked out of the jets during the process, however, I am relieved to know the tub is now clean on the inside and out, not just appearing clean on the outside.” —Painter

The pointed end of the tool is ideal for picking out tangles, the stiff bristles work great at removing dust and dirt, and the bristles at the bottom end of the tool can give your hairbrush a deep clean.

Promising review: “When I bought this, I was really skeptical. I am grossed out by my hairbrush and clean it all the time. I’ve soaked it in vinegar and tea tree oil, used a toothbrush, scrubbed it with shampoo, picked it clean by hand — everything you can think of. Still, it’s so hard to get the little lint that forms at the base of the brush — they don’t dissolve off, and you have to pick them off the bristles one by one because a toothbrush won’t even break them up. This thing works amazingly. I don’t know why, it just does — the particular texture of the bristles on this really grabs everything. It scraped the little lint rings right off, and now my brush is cleaner, 10 times as fast.” —HeartsofHavoc

The six-piece set includes Cooktop Cleaner, POW-R Grip pad tool, scraper, and three cleaning pads.

Promising review: “Works amazingly! I hadn’t thoroughly scrubbed my glass cooktop in years — only wiped down with random multi-cleaners that 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 dry to a haze; and wipe with a clean, dry cotton towel (just like waxing a car). If you aren’t getting a mirrored finish, it’s because you’ve used too much product and not enough elbow grease to polish off.” —B. Swartwood

I’ve had my AirPods for over a year and when the sound quality was diminishing, I was afraid they had a short life expectancy and I would need to get a new pair! Even after using cotton buds to clean the AirPods out, I thought that was enough until my friend said there’s stuff built up and hard to see, but there was nothing able to get it out! Enter this product — it literally took five minutes to clean each ear bud effectively and instantly the sound quality was as good as new! Loud, clear, less trouble connecting to my phone, etc. I really suggest giving this product. You don’t need a full square to clean them, so you can pull a piece off or reuse a square with a side you haven’t used! SO happy I found a solution!” —Amazon Customer

40. A swivel pooper scooper and rake set to make it easier on your back when cleaning up your yard. Bonus: Getting to stay farther away from the poop.

It comes with two bags but you can get more here.

Promising review: “I have three dos: a small, a large, and a giant breed. With work, I only get around to scooping the yard once a week. I previously had a claw grabber-style scoop. When it broke, I got this one. I just used it for the first time and picked up a week’s worth of poop from three dogs in about one-quarter of the the time it took me to do the yard with the claw-style scoop. The bin is big enough to hold a LOT of poop so I make way fewer trips across the yard to empty it out. The absolute only downside is that the handle unscrews easily. I’m just going to put some glue in the joints and screw it into place and that problem will be solved. I never thought I’d be so stoked about a pooper scooper, but here I am.” —Amy Bernadette
