A pack of AirPod cleaners because the last time you offered your buddy an earbud to listen along with you, they actually recoiled in disgust when they saw how gunked up your AirPods were. Squish the flexible square into your AirPod speaker, peel it off, and gasp in horror at the ear goop that’s been dulling the sound quality.

Promising review: “I bought this after seeing it on some BuzzFeed list and thinking about how gross my AirPods probably were. When they came in the mail, I used them immediately. They got all the gunk out that was in the little holes. THEN my husband comes in and sees and wants to use them for his. I learned he has never even tried to clean his own AirPods (?!) DISGUSTING and amazing. It got everything out of his.” —Amazon Customer

A mold and mildew remover so finally — finally! — those unsightly black splotches on your tile grout dissolve. Just set it, forget it, and come back in a few hours to see grout that looks like new. I’m talking basically every speck of black mold is gone! *Cues up “Do You Believe in Magic”*

Promising review: “The words won’t do it justice. I had this little bottle for over a year before I finally used it. What a mistake! I should’ve used it immediately! We have a small leak in our shower, which leads to a lot of built-up mold and mildew. I had tried everything else — commercial cleaners, even — and nothing touched it. Then I came across the little bottle I had bought over a year earlier and had pushed to the back of the cabinet, and I thought, ‘What have I got to lose?’ IT CLEANED ALL THE BLACK GUNK OUT OF MY SHOWER! I can’t say enough good about it. I will buy more and keep some on hand, at least until we can get this leak fixed. What a lifesaver.” —REMayRicks

A pumice cleaning stone for powering through tough rust, lime, and calcium streaks you have to explain to your S.O. are not poop stains — you swear! Give your tired arms a break and let this little guy scrub away discoloration with ease.

Promising review: “I have very hard water that leaves hard-water buildup and nasty stains. It’s embarrassing to have guests over because the toilets are so gross! I have tried so many products and cleaning solutions — from natural essential oils to harsh chemicals so strong I was lightheaded for the rest of the day. Well, I tried out this pumice stone after reading about it in a BuzzFeed article, and honestly the hype is real! It does take some elbow grease, but the after picture is from only 20 minutes of scrubbing, light enough that I didn’t break a sweat! The stone does get used up, but I think this one should last me a couple years at least. So if you have embarrassing toilets, try this!” —Stephanie Ray

A drain clog remover that’ll conquer the hair monster in your shower drain, simultaneously impressing and disgusting you. Or you can let the hair glob remain in the pipes and at some point your shower will turn into a bath. Fun!


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “When I pulled the orange plastic spiked strip from the package, I was immediately skeptical and felt like all those 5-star reviews were from people who exist in an alternate universe. I was tempted to initiate a return on Amazon but decided that I might as well gamble on a piece of $9 plastic before gambling $200 on a plumber. I slipped the plastic strip down my shower drain and literally FIVE SECONDS LATER I was pulling up gobs and gobs and gobs of hair. HOLY COW!!!!!!!! OHMYGOSH. I can’t believe I still have any hair left on my head. SO MUCH REPULSIVE GUNK!!!! I saved my prize hairball on the shower floor to show my husband because I knew he would be as skeptical as I was. We both agree it looks like a small raccoon or a large squirrel lying helplessly on my shower floor. It’s a grisly, messy, smelly and oh-so-rewarding job.” —Chocolate and Chips

Promising review: “Something I didn’t believe until I tried it. So easy to follow the directions written on Angry Mama. I was disappointed when I opened the microwave to see the filth still on it. I was wishing it would magically taken care of itself. But all it took was a quick swipe with a paper towel and GONE. Loosened everything, which is half the process. My microwave was sooooo white once cleaned!! Would buy as gifts.” —max’s mum

Promising review:After many failed attempts using different products I had finally given up and accepted my coffee pot was always going to be stained. Then my husband sends me an article about different things to buy on Amazon and this item was one of them. I was skeptical, even after seeing reviews and before and after pictures. But what the heck, for less than $10 why not try. And I am so happy I did! I let my coffee pot run without adding coffee so I could have nice hot water, then dropped one of these tabs in. It immediately started to fizz, ended up leaving over night. The next day with a quick swipe with a bottle brush and my coffee pot looked like it was brand-new!” —Andrea N

Promising review: “This thing is aahhhh-mazing! I’ve had several kinds of cat hair removers — adhesive strips, sticky rollers, rubber nubby gloves. Nothing else works as well and as quickly. Easy to clean out too. I bought one hand held and a bigger one on a long handle for carpet and area rugs. Love them! They even clean the hair off the stupid red velvet drapes that came with the house when we bought it.” —M. Bauer

A stainless-steel tongue scraper for banishing bad bacteria your toothbrush can’t lift. It should help improve stinky breath so you won’t suffer the embarrassment of someone offering you a breath mint.


amazon.com

Promising review: “This product works!! High quality material, well made, easy to clean, corrosion resistant, at least in my experience. I can tell this will last a long time. And, it works!!!! Got rid of a coating on my tongue that other tongue scrapers and the tongue cleaners on toothbrushes did nothing for!! Noticed it got a lot off the first use!!! My tongue looks healthy, and my throat feels better. Once a thicker layer starts on the tongue due to post nasal drip there’s nothing else that got rid of it. It’s easy to hold, and doesn’t gag me at all. It comes with a travel case, which I love because I don’t want anything that goes in my mouth loose in a bag.” —Saffire Dragon

A mattress vacuum because the last time you cleaned your mattress was…? The answer is never. This loosens dust and dirt lodged in your mattress and sucks it up, catching itty bitty particles.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “You guys, I’m actually embarrassed to show this picture because I pride myself on having a clean home. But this filth just came out of our mattress. My husband and I have always had seasonal allergies but I started to wonder if there was another cause because we both kept waking up stuffy even during the off season. After learning about dust mite allergies, I ordered this vacuum as fast as my fingers could order. I just plugged in this little wonder and got to work, assuming every bit of the bed needed it. I wasn’t wrong. Pulled off everything and did the actual mattress. Yuck. Vacuumed the mattress cover and got more. Our new pillows needed it too. This vacuum is lightweight, easy to maneuver, easy to clean. But its greatest benefit is the peace of mind it provides. We’re all going to sleep better tonight because of it!” —swttulip

A bleach-free, no-scrub weekly shower spray so soap scum and shower grime buildup goes bye bye without you ever having to wipe. Rinse it clean the next day, and you’ll be amazed to see those hard water stains on your shower door are *poof* gone.

Before: a dirty shower floor; after: the clean shower floor


Amazon

Promising review: “We cannot BEGIN to tell you what a lifesaver this is! We have two old fiberglass tubs with vinyl shower enclosures that no matter what amount of scrubbing we have done with everything from bleach to cleanser to vinegar and baking soda would NOT come clean. After I took my shower last night, I sprayed down the tub and walls. Within minutes, all the built-up water deposits and dirt and grime began to melt away in front of my eyes. I left it on overnight, and when I got up this morning, it did not look like the same tub and shower. This product is a godsend, especially for old folks like us who have difficulty getting down on our hands and knees and scrubbing anything. More importantly, it performs as advertised. We plan on using it as part of our weekly cleanup routine. This is truly an overnight sensation!” —Amazon Customer

Promising review: “I have been trying to clean my glass shower for three years since we moved into our house. There was a buildup of hard water spots that would not come off. I tried all the advertised products claiming to easily clean it. None of them worked. I tried vinegar and steel wool and homemade mixtures. Nothing worked. Then I came across a mention of Bio-Clean somewhere on the Internet. I don’t recall where. Bio-Clean is really incredible! It’s non-toxic and safe to handle. And importantly it takes off all the old hard water spots. It also cleans other surfaces. I’ve already tried it to remove water spots on chrome and it works beautifully. I cannot recommend this product more highly.” —Anonymous

A jewelry-cleaning pen that’ll have your jewels sparkling in literal seconds instead of sitting at the table gently scrubbing…and scrubbing…and scrubbing with a toothbrush and hoping you’re getting all the nooks and crannies.

Promising review: “I used to drop my rings in a bit of watered down Windex, let them soak, then scrub with a soft toothbrush, rinse, and dry. That process took about 15 minutes, and even then my rings, and particularly the stones, were not flawless looking afterwards. I thought it did the job. ENTER DIAMOND DAZZLE STIK! I bought this after reading a BuzzFeed list and now I literally I sound like an infomercial talking about this thing. It’s incredible. First you dispense a little product, and you don’t even have to take your ring off!!! Then you scrub for approximately three seconds, rinse, and BAM!!!! Holy sparkles, Batman. My precious stones have never looked better. Even rings that looked pretty good before, I couldn’t believe how sparkly they were after this. Consider me a lifetime customer.” —Amazon Customer

Rocco & Roxie is a family-owned small business named after the Magleby family’s pets Rocco, a labradoodle, and Roxie, a former shelter tabby cat. They make a variety of pet supplies, including cleaners, treats, grooming tools, accessories, and toys.

Promising review: “I love EVERYTHING about this. Like every other reviewer, we’ve tried every other option we could find to get rid of urine stench and stains. Ours were from an elderly dog who couldn’t make it through the night sometimes. Long story short, we have YEARS of urine stains that, after being ‘cleaned,’ continued to reappear. Now every single recurring stain on our carpet is GONE! Not a single one has returned. I don’t have sufficient words for how truly thankful we are for this product. It’s like NOTHING else. And the cherry on top is the wonderful scent when you first apply it and NO scent once it’s done it’s job. So, from the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU for these amazing products.” —Anita McCarty

A two-in-one Hoover carpet cleaner because I would bet good money that you have no idea how dirty your carpets are. This sucks up dirt, dust, and pet hair *and* steams your carpets. It’s time to reclaim your weekends instead of spending the whole day vacuuming, then steaming, then waiting for everything to dry.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I love everything about the Hoover Smartwash Automatic Carpet Cleaner! With adopting our daughter’s 16-year-old cat recently, we forgot what problems we used to have with our older cats; not a lot of fun at times. Since we have had the old boy it has been fun, except when he has hairballs, and then the real fun starts! We received our new Hoover shampooer about two weeks ago. So simple to operate, and the carpets dry exceptionally fast. Don’t be lazy and do the final rinse with clean water as suggested. The touch button ‘full time’ dry feature allows you to go back and forth in the dry mode and ALL the excess water comes up like a charm. No leakage, very fast-cleaning, and exceptional suction! I didn’t need to pre-spot anything. A great machine!!!” —Peter E. von Elten

A drawer organizer so you’ll be forced to toss those random socks that no longer have matches. You may be surprised by how much free space you have now thanks to simply folding your clothes.

Each set comes with four bins with six, seven, eight, and 24 slots.

Promising review: “Bought this for my daughter who moved in to her college dorm to help her keep the limited dresser drawer space organized. She says that it’s ‘great’ for keeping her things organized but also helpful to see when she’s running low on underwear or socks and needs to get a load of clothes done!” —Lori B.

A fabric defuzzer if you’ve trained your eyes to ignore the lint, pilling, loose strands, and fuzz that’s magically accumulated on your couch. It has a handy lint catcher as well as three settings so you can choose how close of a shave you want.

Promising review: “OK, I don’t normally rave about things like this. I bought this on a whim in a last attempt to save my favorite duvet cover. The pills had gotten to the point where it was seriously uncomfortable to sleep with them getting all up in my leg space. I thought I was going to have to get a new duvet cover entirely. Along came this lil’ baby. Not only is my duvet cover basically brand new, but I have found a new hobby. I’m depilling everything. Sweatshirts, leggings, blankets, socks, anything that looks like it needs some love. It does the job quickly and leaves everything looking fresh. Hi, I’m obsessed. I can’t stop. I should send this back. I’ve started asking if my neighbors need anything depilled. I’m going to buy one of these for everyone in my life. Everyone needs to own this. Take it away from me.” —Sydney Jensen

A tea bag organizer for anyone who triggers an avalanche of half-full boxes of tea bags when they open the pantry.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “This holds so much tea! I organized a shelf full of tea boxes into this sleek holder, which takes up a third of the space. It holds any standard size bag and I was able to shove a couple larger ones in to, although they are crammed in. The side edge is shaped in a way that makes it easy and comfortable to grab and it is very sturdy. I keep it on a high shelf and haven’t had any issues pulling it down daily. I keep herbal teas on one side and caffeinated tea on the other. Don’t underestimate how nice it is to see all your tea at the same time. No more digging through a dozens boxes to find exactly what you want.” —Alexia

Get it from Amazon for $22.49+ (available in three styles).

A fizzing toilet tablet that’ll sanitize your crapper and keep it smelling fresh without you ever having to break a sweat — because no! Your toilet should not smell bad all the time.

Pardo Naturals is a Black-owned and woman-owned small business helmed by Rita Pardo, a mom who was looking for natural hair, body, and home products that wouldn’t irritate her daughter’s severe eczema.

For all the folks who don’t enjoy cleaning the toilet — myself included — these dissolving tablets make quick work of a grimy bowl. The tablets are a little hard to dislodge from the plastic container (although that does make me feel confident that they’re secure during transit and won’t break; mine all arrived intact!), but once you get one out, you drop it in the toilet and let it do its thing. It’ll start fizzing — just like a bath bomb — loosening any stains and streaks in 10 minutes so they come away with a light brushing. I never let the toilet get too bad (and usually it takes awhile for me to notice any buildup since there are only two people in the apartment), so I can’t vouch for them if you have really set-in hard water stains or haven’t cleaned the commode in six months. But if you’re looking to ditch the harsh cleansers in your toilet cleaning routine, this is a great addition to your lineup.
