Summer is coming to a close and we’re still spending a majority of our time at home. Which means it gets dirtier (and messier) 10x faster. Yes, the dishes and laundry are piling. But take a deep breath.
We’re here with things that’ll help you cut through grime and organize your space. So you can get back to what really matters. Like researching pumpkin-flavored recipes for your fall obsession.

Introducing Bar Keepers Friend. It can be used in the bathroom, kitchen, and on cookware to remove stains and restore shine. It can also be used on stainless steel, porcelain, brass, copper, glass, ceramic, chrome, and aluminum. So literally everything. Consider it your go-to. ($17.99, Amazon)

Hang ‘em. But don’t stop there. This wall unit can hold mail, your wallet, and a small plant. It has five hooks for leashes, scarves, and hats, too. And a small mirror so you can check yourself out before heading out the door. We won’t tell. ($19.99, The Container Store)
Stack ‘em. This holder stands them up, so they keep their shape. No more bent wires or cups, snagged lace, or stretched straps. One organizer can hold up to 10 bras. And you can even use it for bathing suit tops. ($29.99, The Container Store)
Laundry time. But make it pods. Pods that fight tough stains and get rid of nasty odors while being gentle on your skin and favorite clothes. They're made with plant-derived ingredients and packaged in recyclable cardboard. Win-win.* (18+, Dropps)
Use one spray. This one works on door panels, the steering wheel, dashboard, and seats. And yes, it can be used on both leather and carpet. It’ll lift dirt and grime, get rid of bird poop, and banish grease and food stains. Your car never looked so good. ($16.99, Amazon)
