An affordable bottle of sink cleaner and polish to prove that a seriously effective clean doesn’t have to come with a high price tag. Just look at those oh-so-satisfying results!

Promising review: “Every once in awhile you stumble on a product on Amazon that you buy on a whim because of the good reviews. When you actually receive the product and use it you can’t believe how good it really is. This is definitely one of those products. Truth be told, the stainless steel sink in my house is 14 years old. While we have cleaned the sink thoroughly every two weeks since we have moved in, we have never polished it or used a product such as this one. The first time I applied it to the sink we could tell that there was an amazing difference. In fact, the sink sparkled so brightly from the overhead kitchen can lights it really was too bright to view! You can tell that this product is ‘doing its job’ because a black film comes off of the stainless steel after you clean it.” —From Wyoming to California via NYC

An over-the-door shoe organizer that’ll turn the back of any door into a perfect place for everything from shoes to cleaning supplies, while clearing up a lot of cabinet space at the same time.,

Promising review: “Having no place to store my shoes was driving me nuts, and I was always tripping over shoes. I wasn’t sure if the pockets in the organizer would be large enough for my Crocs, but they fit perfectly when I put the shoes in heel first. I was able to get two pairs of sneakers in the last two sets of pockets, as well. The pockets seem to be well-made and I’m confident that this shoe organizer will last.” —A. Roach

A plant-based stainless steel cleaner for getting rid of all the streaks, smudges, and grubby fingerprints that are keeping your appliances from living out the “stainless” in stainless steel.

It also comes with a microfiber cleaning cloth!

Promising review: “We got this product because while stainless steel appliances look so nice when you first get them, as soon as you start using them you get fingerprints galore. All of the ‘home remedy’ tricks we tried were annoying, or so labor-intensive as to be overly frustrating, so this product has been wonderful. It takes only a few minutes to clean all the appliances and make them look brand new again — great for when company comes over and you want to pretend like you always live in a magazine spread for home rather than the comfortable way you normally do :-)” —Anton Stocker

I took my shoes off and within five minutes I couldn’t smell it any more!” —Kaorrie

Promising review: “The perfect handy tool for getting into tight places. It’s firm enough for multiple uses but it doesn’t scratch or mar surfaces. I should have gotten the five-pack; I have so many uses for these things. I think the best use yet was cleaning the sliding door track. I finally could get into the corners to get the grunge out. A great invention.” —Miss Picky

It makes me want to keep cleaning; it works that well. It’s a plus that there are no fumes and it’s safe to use without gloves! Product actually smells really good, like toothpaste. I’ve already told my family about it! Will definitely buy again.” —loveshoes!

This septic-safe rust stain remover for dissolving seemingly impossible stains brought about by hard water with high iron levels. The gel formula clings to stains, working its magic with no time-consuming scrubbing required.

Promising review: “We have a VERY high iron concentration in our well water at home and it ends up slowly turning our shower, sink, and toilet a deep orange color over time. Have tried a ton of products to try to fix this issue but nothing works nearly as well as this product. Smells absolutely terrible but works AMAZING. A few spritzes of this and you can watch the orange dissolve away before your eyes. I use this formula for the sink and inside of the shower and use the powder formula for inside the toilet as that seems to work better there.” —Samantha

Dishwasher cleaning tablets because the funky smell emanating from your dishwasher has been haunting you since Christmas and these tablets make giving your cleaning machine a deep internal clean as easy as…well…running the dishwasher.

Promising review: “This stuff is amazing! I used it in my dishwasher. Had standing water on the bottom, dropped one tablet in the water. Put it on light wash cycle and at the end of the cycle, the water was gone! It thoroughly cleans and I have not had any other problems. I now use it regularly. I recommend this highly to keep your dishwasher clean and eliminate clogs from buildup.

A jewelry cleaning pen so you can get all your gems (real or not) to sparkle so bright even your Claire’s ring from middle school will turn heads.

Promising review: “I’ve worn my engagement ring daily for just shy of five years. During that time, I’ve had it professionally cleaned when I get the prongs checked (annually) and I’ve used an ultrasonic cleaning device and a soft-bristle makeup brush with Dawn dish soap to clean my ring. None of those methods restored its original sparkle, but they helped. I figured that if even a professional cleaning couldn’t get rid of all the dust and grime in the setting around the stone, nothing really could. Enter the Diamond Dazzle stick. I spent about three minutes using this product on my ring the day my pen arrived, and I was stunned by the results. My ring sparkles like the day I received it. The brush allows you to get way under your stone and in the teeny tiny crevices around the setting that harbor dirt and dust, which mutes the light going into and coming out of your ring. I can’t believe how effective this little pen is.” —Buffalo Mama

Get it from Amazon for $6.75.

Seriously though, this is my dedicated teacup and it had four years’ worth of tea staining/buildup. I won’t lie, it took four tablets and I used boiling water and let each tablet soak overnight over the course of four days but my cup now looks brand new again. So glad I found these! Now I know exactly how to take care of my cup and it will never get back to the way it was before!” —Chrystal Mayo

Get it from Amazon for $7.96.

A sturdy detail brush so you can retire that old, feeble toothbrush and get at grout and tight corners with an angled silicone scraper and heavy-duty scrubbing bristles for a truly deep clean.


Promising review: “I always kept a toothbrush under the kitchen sink to clean under and around faucets and they do ok. But this brush is a must-have for anyone serious about keeping the sink clean. (I also keep a separate brush in my bin for cleaning bathrooms.) the scraper on the back comes in handy more than one would think and the hard rubber tip has such an unusual shape that can clean crevices you just can’t get to with a toothbrush. Love it!” —Brian W. Kittrell

A dryer vent cleaning kit that attaches to your vacuum to suck lint and other debris (aka major fire hazards) from the narrowest of crevices.,

The entire set comes with a plastic hose, a Holikme adapter, and a vacuum hose for use with most any vacuum. Plus, a flexible lint brush!

Promising review: “I love this dryer lint extension for the vacuum. I wanted to try a cheaper option first before I spent way more money having someone clean the lint trap deep down. So much lint came out of my dryer, it was wild. I’m very good at cleaning it after using the dryer, but inevitably there’s always more that we can’t see or reach because it’s too deep. It’s a great way to keep it clear of lint to increase the efficiency of the dryer, which will save money from electricity and extend the life of the dryer, and prevent possible fires.” —Cat Landis

Get it from Amazon for $8.95.

A jetted bathtub cleaner because have you ever thought about the gross grime hiding in your Jacuzzi jets? Now that you’ve been cursed with that thought, you’re probably going to want to give your tub a rinse. Just fill it with water, pour the cleaner in, run your jets, and let the “yuck” seep out.

Promising review:This stuff is seriously amazing! I am relentless about cleaning my tub because I use it so often and always get grossed out if I don’t. Before I purchased this, I used the typical homemade recipe of bleach and powdered dishwashing soap. I’d have to run two or three cycles to get it crystal clear. One cycle with this stuff, 15 minutes, and the results are amazing! The first photo (above) is with my tub running with the solution. Then I drained it (second photo) and wiped it down with a sponge. When I refilled the tub up, and reran the jets, I kid you not the water was CRYSTAL CLEAR! See for yourself in the last photo! I’m so impressed!” —Chelsea

A microfiber window blind cleaner with three blades so you can clean the tops and bottoms of two blinds at once, which seems a lot more effective than the current strategy of quickly running a regular feather duster against the blinds and calling it a day.


This set includes four microfiber dusters and a tiered plastic base.

Promising review: “OK I’ll be honest, I ordered this because of the price. After reviewing several other options and having been disappointed with previous dusters I’ve had, I figured why spend more money on something that isn’t going to work? So I ordered the least expensive option but WOW does this little tool rock!!!! It’s very easy to use and clean. It does a fantastic job of cleaning and dusting the blinds and gets ALL of the crud off of them. My blinds haven’t been this clean since the day they were first installed.

Who wants to spend the money to replace flooring when they will just mess it up! I cleaned my son’s carpet with this for the first time today and it looks and smells SOOOOO much better than it was! Other carpet cleaning products I’ve used have made the carpet smell like wet dog while cleaning and this didn’t! It smelled great the whole time! I’m hooked!!” —Megan Davis
