These days, your home is getting a ton of action. Like a ton. Which somehow means that the dust is collecting 40 times faster, the crumbs have taken over, and you’re constantly wiping down the counter that you literally just wiped. We’re exhausted just typing this.
Enter: the best products to make your home spotless. We’re talking sparkling, shimmering clean. Little woodland creatures to help you sold separately.
For when you’re tired of standing in a murky puddle while you shampoo…
Remove the clog
This drain protector will keep your pipes clean by collecting all the hair you seem to lose while washing. Plus it won’t block water flow. And it takes 0.2 seconds to clean. Quick and painless.
For when your toilet brush has seen better days...
$17.76/set of 2, Amazon
And switch to a ToiletWand. Each head is pre-filled with cleaner so you don’t have to reach for an extra bottle. And you can toss the head once you’re done. Aka, no more grimy brush sitting in your bathroom.
For when you wanna cook something without oil splattering all over...
Use a guard
It’ll sit within the inside of the pan to protect your stovetop. So you don’t have to wipe everything down post-meal. It’s also made of silicone so it can handle high heat. But heads up: double-check your pan size before buying.
For when you spill wine on your new tie-dye loungewear...
Kiss the stain goodbye
All you’ve gotta do is spray the stain, let it sit for five minutes, then wash. It can also work wonders on coffee, sauce, and ink. Oh, and pet accidents. A true lifesaver.
For when you’ve got a dust bunny hanging out underneath your bed...
Reach for it
With this glove. It’ll help you hit all those random and tricky places your Swiffer can’t get to. Including blinds and furniture legs. Just wet the glove with water to get started.
For when you’ve got a crumb collection on either side of your stove...
Fill the gap
These covers prevent food scraps from falling down the abyss that exists between your stove and countertop. You know the one. Your hand can never reach there. Nor does any broom. We hope last week’s spaghetti is living a nice life down there.
For when you create a mini lake in your bathroom while showering...
Clip the curtain
$8.99/set of 4, Amazon
These peel-and-stick clips will do the job you desperately need done: hold your shower curtain in place. See ya never, soaked floor.
For when you’ve got sauce permanently living on the inside of your microwave...
Steam if off
Literally. This gadget (that’s wearing a cute dress, NBD) will produce steam to soften caked-on spills. So your cleaning time gets cut in half. No scrubbing necessary.
For when your reusable water bottle starts tasting funky...
Drop a tablet in
$8/set of 12, Amazon
And watch it fizz. Each one is made of a mix of natural ingredients to rid of germs and odors. So each sip will taste fresh. Hi, hydration.
For when your blueberry pie decides to drip all over the oven...
Rude. Use a mat
Like one that can be trimmed to fit your oven perfectly. And that can be easily removed for cleaning. And that can double as a baking sheet. Need we say more?
For when your glassware comes out looking spotty...
Clear the build-up
Your dishwasher is jealous of all the cleaning and wants a turn. Drop in a tablet to power away leftover detergent and mineral build-up. So next time your dishes and glasses will be streak-free. Spotless.
For when your couch looks like it's wearing a fur sweater...
Give it a sweep
This hair remover can be used everywhere your pet sheds. Carpets, clothing, and car seats included. Boom, magic.
