Promising review: "We have very hard water in this area, and though my dishwasher is supposed to be self-cleaning when you use the right detergent (which I have been), it's been getting gunkier and gunkier and a couple of months ago the rinse aid dispenser stopped filling properly. When I looked that up, the online advice said that can happen if it gets too dirty and gave advice on running the dishwasher with vinegar and other tricks. But I saw this and, being pleased with Affresh's machine cleaners I'd used on my clothes washer, decided to try it. It worked AMAZINGLY, in ONE try. My rinse aid dispenser immediately started working good as new again, and my dishwasher is the cleanest it's been since we got it! Love it!" —Mouriana

Get a six-pack from Amazon for $5.99.

2. A foaming garbage disposal cleaner because, like your dishwasher, the disposal craves a good de-funking from time to time. Once you toss one in the sink, run a little water and watch the blue fizz dislodge all the culinary crap that's causing gross odors.

amazon.com

Promising review: "These are amazing! I was skeptical at first but I followed the directions (which are super easy) and was grossed out and satisfied at the same time to see the gunk that was removed. You put the entire packet down your disposal (I read that twice too) and magic happens in under two minutes! That is what I call powerful and successful cleaning! The scent is super clean and light with a hint of lemon. These will definitely be a cleaning staple for me." —KPITT

Get a four-pack from Amazon for $5.80 (also available in a pack of six).

3. This carpet and upholstery cleaner to quickly get rid of all those old mystery stains on your couches, chairs, and carpets and make your upholstery feel almost brand-new.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I LOVE this Woolite carpet stain remover with its rubbing brush. We stayed for some weeks at dear friend’s home while we were waiting to move and they were out of town. Their cat had done some nasty things in their rooms. We thought we’d show some of our appreciation by cleaning some of these spots off their light gray carpeting. IT WORKED! THEY NOTICED! THEY LOVED IT! I don’t know about the cat. So we bought this house with white carpets. Who puts in white carpets?? Anyways, we have white carpets. So I bought these Woolite cans and know they will be used and will do a great job." —Sany123

Get a four-pack from Amazon for $14.99.

4. storage box for all those pesky cables, cords, and loose wires that sit on your bedroom floor in a messy pile. This doubles as a charging station for your devices, too.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I'm so happy with this organizer box. I can't stand a heap of tangled cords going every which way. I've got two AC adapter boxes in there. Also in the box is a small power supply, the cord for the iMac I use, and a long USB cord plugged into my charging station. It's awesome." —Ben

Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in three colors).

5. This bottle of Bar Keepers Friend soft cleansing liquid so you can get rid of old, crusted-over stains from a variety of surfaces and tricky crevices (like the area around the burners on your stove!).

Kayla Suazo/BuzzFeed

Use this on surfaces like stainless-steel appliances, pots and pans, shower stalls, sinks, and tubs.

Promising review: "I used it for the first time on my new stainless steel sink last night — which was already showing water stains. Wow did this stuff work like a charm. It really shined my sink up and did not leave a white milky residue like some cleaners do. I think I might be addicted to this stuff daily, whether my sink really needs it or not..." —Alana

Get a bottle and a scouring sponge from Amazon for $18.99 (also available with the option for four scouring sponges).

6. A set of power scrubber brushes you can attach to a DRILL(!!) so you can clean grimy surfaces like you've never been able to before. It'll help you clean up so fast that you'll actually have time to deal with all the other messes you still have to get rid of.

amazon.com

The bristles are made from nylon and won't scratch tubs, sinks, baseboards, fiberglass, shower doors, and porcelain. Of course, if you aren't sure these brushes will work on a specific surface, you can always test a small area before going full steam ahead.

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 $14.95 (available in five colors; the different colors represent different levels of bristle stiffness. Yellow is all-purpose, white is soft, blue and green are medium, red is stiff, and black is ultra stiff).

7. A set of vacuum storage bags if your closet is beginning to look like a tiny pigsty because, if you're like me, you sometimes have trouble letting go and as a result, just can't seem to minimize a decade's worth of clutter.

amazon.com

Promising review: "THESE ARE LIFE-CHANGING. They even give you a hand pump to use in case you're taking the bags camping or just don't have a vacuum handy. I tested the pump to see how well it works, and it worked perfectly! Works just as well as a vacuum, just takes a little more effort pumping out the air. Using these bags, I got half my closet back! I used three bags to store ALL THE items in my closet including three large pillows and several thick blankets and comforters. I will most definitely be buying more; these are fantastic!!!" —Knastay

Get a pack of six from Amazon for $20.39.

8. This grout cleaner because the only thing that stands between you and cleaner-looking bathroom tiles is the 10 minutes you'll need to let this product sit for, and a little light scrubbing.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I never leave reviews on Amazon but this grout cleaner definitely deserved a review. I tried three other cleaners before buying Grout-eez and they did nothing but waste my time and money. Grout-eez got my grout perfectly clean in no time, plus it was easy to use and no odor. I'll never use another grout cleaner." —Tyler

Get it from Amazon for $22.95+ (available in packs of one and two).

9. This cutlery organizer tray if you previously just tossed everything into the drawer, but the disorganized look just isn't cutting it anymore.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I thought this would be handy and help with space management in a small apartment. It turned out to be absolutely perfect. It keeps the silverware clean and stores a lot in a very small space. I love it. I got two, because I inherited my grandmother's silverware, so there are two types of forks and two types of spoons, and I wanted things separate and organized. Two organizers fit side-by-side in a standard apartment drawer. After getting these, I picked up the knife organizer, and it’s just as handy and useful." —Jerimi

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in four styles and three colors).

10. carpet cleaning solution designed to work with all water-based carpet cleaners so you can actually watch all the questionable pet stains disappear from your floor. You'll have to pick your jaw up off your (now clean) floor!

amazon.com

Promising review: "After reading the reviews I thought I could at least try it, and holy smokes, this is a miracle cleaner!!! I think I have tried every cleaner on the market for pet stains and nothing ever really works on my carpets. Even if I get it off the top, it somehow comes back up. My crazy dogs hate the rain and they have one spot that they always go on when they decide they are not going outside. I have cleaned the spot probably 100 times. I cleaned this area one time with this cleaner and my spot steam cleaner and it is completely gone! The stain and smell are 100% gone, not just covered up like before, completely and absolutely gone. Miracle cleaner for sure!" —PLLane

Get it from Amazon for $19.97+ (available in two sizes).
