1. A Scrubbing Bubbles toilet cleaning stamp provides an in-the-bowl solution to help keep things clean.

Promising review: "Not a gel stamp. More like a blob of goop. Well that didn’t work. The gel seemed like it was melted? I read the instructions and it did not come out like a stamp at all. It came out in a big messy goop that was leaking out the top. It was not a gel stamp that stuck to the side of the toilet bowl ‘discretely’ at all. It actually made a mess all over my hands, the stamper gun and the toilet bowl. It plopped down in several places around the bowl that looks like someone took an invisible poop and did not flush. It smells nice. Too bad it didn’t work. It would have been nice to freshen up the toilet bowl on the regular. It seems like it is just soap because it did foam and bubble up like soap when washing my hands (since it was all over them) and did not seem too harsh of chemicals. What the heck happened?" — Alexis Stroup

Promising review: "Quick & Easy Cleaning Tried the Weimar silver polish today on a Necklace I had that was tarnished. I was impressed how quickly the shine came back.Squirted a peas size amount on a 100% Polyester cloth, started rubbing pendant about a minute, then ran the chain between the cloth Pinching the cloth with my fingers around it until I stopped seeing black lines. Rinsed with soap and water than dried with a similar cloth. Whole process took about 5 minutes. See photo for before and after." — MirnsWorld

3. The following is a microfiber window blind cleaner with three blades to help you quickly get through cleaning the blinds. You will no longer have to hoist them up and deal with a cloud of dust.

Promising review: "Finally! A product that works on all types of blinds! I love this product!! It works fantastic! I am a housekeeper for several private homes. My least favorite job . . . cleaning window blinds! I have used about every method there is, but the job is still very time consuming. The main reason it takes so long is you must clean each and every slat separately to do the job right. Not any more! With this product you can clean two slats at once and it cleans them the first swipe! The micro fiber is the key to getting all the dust and the design of the product makes it super easy! PLUS this tool can be used on different types of blinds because it is flexible! I have used it on wooden shutters, plastic vertical patio door blinds, and horizontal metal "mini" blinds. Additionally, the micro fiber "sleeve" that fits on the tool is washable and it comes with five of them so its a real value, being reusable and with so many to use it should last a long time before they all completely wear out! This product deserves 10 stars!" — Sandy D

4. An incredibly powerful grout cleaner to erase years of nasty build-up. You don't have to live with it anymore!

Promising review: "this product contains acid in the formula Please do not buy this product. Several months ago, I purchased grout-ezz from Amazon to clean the grout on my kitchen floor. The kitchen floor is white ceramic tile with white grout. The floor is only one year old. It did clean the gout but ruined my kitchen ceramic tile floor. Because of the pour spout on the bottle, it was impossible to regulate the amount of liquid applied to the grout. Yes it did spill over on the tile. At first, I was not concerned because I followed the instructions and wiped up the access. After drying, I noticed that the cleaner left etching on the ceramic floor. I have contacted Jeff White owner of Clean-ezz and he refuses to do anything about my problem. I have sent him pictures of the floor, verifications from the tile manufactor and a professional cleaner verifying that the etching will not come out. I would like to hear from anyone else who had the same problem. I did notice one person did have a problem. We checked the contents of cleaner and it does have acid in it." — NOT EEZ

5. A targeted cleaner with a commercial-strength formula that can quickly and easily clean soap scum off of shower doors, tub bottoms, and sinks.

Promising review: "I couldn’t believe it! Ok, so I am not usually shocked, but this product really had me speechless! We have 2 filthy boys, plus my husband and myself with 1 bathroom. I have tried everything to get the black grime off the bottom of the tub...harsh chemicals and all the “YouTube” remedies. Nothing worked. I am almost embarrassed to put the before picture up because it was so disgusting, but I wanted to show what I was dealing with. So, after reading the reviews on Bucko, I decided to try it. OMG! It really works! Now, since our tub was worthy of a landfill, I couldn’t just spray a layer and wipe like it says. Although, if you only have normal soap scum, it would definitely be that easy. I filled the tub with about a quarter inch of water, then poured in the Bucko so that there was more product than water. I let it sit while we had dinner, so maybe a half hour or slightly more. When I went back in, I took a scouring pad and the grime literally peeled right off! I only had to put more elbow grease where it was the worst. Needless to say, I am amazed, thankful, and relieved. I don’t have to be embarrassed by my bathroom any longer. Thank you Bucko!! You have a fan for life now." — Amazon Customer

6. A 10-pack of ultra-absorbent Swedish dishcloths to help clean up spills in a more efficient way. With these dishcloths, you won't have to go through as many paper towels.

Promising review: "China is still involved regardless of how many times "Swedish" is stated in the marketing I bought this product because it was specifically marketed as "Made in Europe." The marketing on their site states: "European Made - Don't settle for low quality Chinese alternatives!" They don't say exactly where in Europe, but the over-use of the word "Swedish" sure leads you to believe they are from Sweden. Be that as it may, I am ok with buying from any European country because they all have high labor standards (no slaves and/or children), pay reasonable wages, place a lot of importance on sustainability, and maintain high standards to protect the health and welfare of consumers. To my surprise, the package that arrived said "Made in Europe. Packaged in China." What?!?! How is a product that has been sent half way around the world to be put into a plastic bag "eco-friendly," as is touted on your site? You can't put the cloths in a plastic bag where they are manufactured for less money than shipping them to the other side of the planet, not to mention the environmental cost? These dish cloths are not cheap. A higher price is fine because I am happy to pay signficantly more to buy from a country that has honest and trustworthy business practices. But I have the feeling in my gut that something is not on the level here. The fact that China is involved in any capacity makes me deeply unhappy because I specifically looked for a product that was China-free. So now I have ended up doing business with China, but at European prices. Not good! Not good at all!" — Molly H.

8. A millipede-like hair remover with more than 4k hooks and loops can ensnare all the hair down there and save you from having to replace your drain or visit the plumber.

Promising review: "Won’t be without it in the future I’m far too ashamed of what emerged from that drain to post a photo of it. Imagine a wildly hairy and multi tentacled swamp creature hiding in the drain… and lo, here comes this little treasure.Easily slides into the evil lair of whatever everloving crap that drain monster is, and with a few quick rotations (holding the sleeve jobbie - I am rubbish at reading directions and STILL managed to pull this off-) it met with some resistance from the villain.But our trusty, stubborn biped here kept cranking that mammajamma, until yay verily, it would crank no further.Upon pulling it from the drain, I smelled it before I saw it.Yes, this vile clump of ew came with an unholy odor - you could be forgiven for thinking it wouldn't reek THAT BAD when bc soap and cleanser are sliding by all the time - I mean, you would be wrong -Anyhoo, upsy daisies comes this bit of foul, sludgy, hairy, stanky, crud, dripping black goo and I thought HOLY CRAP THAT IS AMAZING and I tried to pul it off the millipede snake drain device…. But no.I used paper towels and an old stuff toothbrush and friends I don’t mind telling you I actually used my bare hands to try and pull that crap off - but to no avail.I know it says it’s reusable and migod, I wanted to use it on every sink and drain in the castle here, but I decided to toss it, because it was too hard and too gross. Id love if it came with a defunkification brush or something,, an effective too to easily scrape its filth from it, I’d buy it.Until then - I shall am continue to slay drain dragons with this golden beauty." — KLo

Stove burner coverscloseup of the crumb catcher on the edge of the stove top and countertop

10. Stove burner covers can help catch any mess on gas stovetops. They can also cover up any chips or cracks on the stovetop.

Promising review: "Seemingly indestructable I use these burner covers on my gas stove. I have one of those “fancy” stoves with the big iron grates and power burner gas jets. These burners put out a big flame. I got tired to trying to scrub the burned on food, so I gave these a try. Well, they are just perfect. The heat and fire from the jet doesn’t seem to affect these. I don’t know what they’re made of, but it sure is capable of handing a lot of heat. When I clean the stove I shake these off and wash the crumbs and stuff down the garbage disposal. Then I fill the sink with warm water and a squirt of dish soap. Soak them for a few mins and rinse and you’re good to go again. On thing to note is that some food will burn to these mat covers. You’ll end up with a cover that has some burned on food—like charcoal. However, I’d much rather have it burn on the cover than on the stove and have to scrub it off. I definitely recommend these." — Amazon Customer

11. Green Gobbler Drain Clog Dissolver is a far better choice for clearing bathroom or kitchen drains than the super well-known brand you usually grab. Clogs never happen at convenient moments, so it's important to have a reliable product on hand.

Promising review: "At first I thought I was had, but then I took out the plunger....and it was cleared in two plunges. I have a toilet, that every #2 is a crap shoot on whether or not it will go down. Kept telling the kids to use the other toilet, but of course, they'd remember only a couple of times and then they were back at clogging up the toilet. Checked these children's toilet paper usage for their #2s and that couldn't have been it, they weren't being wasteful.Then Christmas came and it took a literal 3 hours of plunging and snaking to the point the whole porcelain bowl was left all marked up I had to drain it and use Barkeepers Friend to clean up the marks after we finally got it to go down because it looked so atrocious I couldn't stand to look at it. So, I'm thinking, something has got to be down there. We did catch one child throwing the hair caught in the shower drain in there since that's the bathroom most used by the long-haired girls, so maybe that was it, or a hot wheels car or something. One of these days, I knew I was going to have to spend the hundred dollars for the rotorooter when whatever it was finally became stronger than our plunging ability, but if it was a wad of hair or a q-tip, surely some chemical would dissolve it, but of course all the draino things say no toilets....so I looked for a chemical plunger for the toilet and came across this and figured $12 was worth a try to avoid Roto Rooter.Decided not to use it right away and wait for the next inevitable kid pooping in the wrong toilet and backing it up. And last night was it. So, I plunged (because it should have been pretty good after all that snaking just two weeks ago, right?) and could only get the water to go down very, very slowly, but not flush. I flushed again, nothing and plunged a deal more until I got that water all the way down to just out of the trap because I figure I want this Green Gobbler to be as undiluted as possible. I pour in the Gobbler and then decide to microwave 4 cups of water to the point of boiling and stick it in with the Gobbler because of the instructions for all the other type drains to be followed by hot water, so I figure that could help...I left it sit for 4 hours and the instructions say to wait 2 hours or until water is at normal levels, but well, nothing had moved, but I wasn't sure that mattered since I'd plunged it so far down, that those 4 cups of water didn't reach up to normal level really. I poured in another 4 boiling cups of water which is above normal levels, saw no movement, crossed my fingers and flushed....nope!! :( It backed up all the way to the top. Argh! I'd been had, I thought. I sighed and picked up the plunger, figuring I'd be there for another hour or two like usual when lo', on the second plunge, it all siphoned away! YAY!I'm now back to buy another bottle to have on hand in case whatever it ate up didn't get all eaten up, but it surely did something! And I didn't have to plunge for 2 hours again! Hopefully that cleared it all up, but I'm arming myself against a monster hairball or whatever was down there by buying another one." — Izmadiz

disgusting stained toilet and then the clean toilet

12. A pumice stone that'll scrub away hard water marks and you should most definitely label it as TOILET so people don't use it on their feet.

Promising review: "Works fast with little effort!!! Oh my WOW! Quickly I will say that I, weak little me, was able to scrub the impossible to remove ring out of my toilet in under 2 minutes! In the last 7 years, everywhere we have lived has had hard water. The last place we lived had those rings really bad when we moved in. It took my husband over an hour to scrub it all off with a wire scrubber! We quickly found out that if you don't scrub the toilets EVERY DAY it comes back fast! After a few weekends away and coming back to nasty toilets all over again, we tried several different ways to clean it. Even tried a regular pumis stone, but didn't work nearly as well. The place we live at now had the toilets prestine when we moved in, but after being away for over a week, they became disgusting! I was dreading having to clean them for when we host Christmas this year. But now I'm actually excited! And I don't get excited about cleaning lol! The before picture is after I just scrubbed it with a regular toilet bowl brush.I had no issues with delivery or packaging. I read that a person who received this from another seller got theirs in horrible packaging that left a huge mess when opening it. But it was all intact!Will definitely be buying this over and over!!!" — Caity

13. A drill brush cleaning kit for attaching to your drill/driver for an infomercial-like cleaning session that'll have you seeking out all the dirty surfaces you've been ignoring. This'll handle all the elbow grease *very* quickly...even if your oven doesn't look this sorry.

Promising review: "Excellent purchase-exactly as described I’m in love with this. I manage many apartment properties and finding people to do the cleaning has been tricky business, so I end up having to get in and clean these horrendous filth pods tenants lived in and left me to deal with when they move out. The ovens and stove tops are usually the worst, and I absolutely hate cleaning. I came across this drill attachment set and let me tell you it helped me tremendously! I still had to get in with a putty knife on some of them but it really cut down my elbow grease time. I’ve posted some pictures for you, the dirty oven is after me attacking it with a green scrubbie for quite some time (note: the white stuff all over is heavy duty commercial grade oven gel cleaner I sprayed on it two weeks ago and still was struggling to get it clean.) and then I received the text that my package was delivered and I ran home immediately to get it and finish the job. I don’t have a picture of the oven before I started but let me tell you it was nasty, one of the worst I’ve seen. If it wasn’t for this drill attachment, I think my arms would have just fallen off trying to clean it as good as I did! My only con would be that it doesn’t have any extension of any sort so I really had my drill all up in that oven, but well worth it." — Faedaa

Great for patterned socks that you are always losing the match to.Pros:- Quick and easy to use. Just put your socks in between the cords and tighten one of the fobs to secure.- hangs off of the hamper- holds quite a few pairs of socksCons:- loud in the dryer when the plastic fobs hit the sides of the drum- wrinkles the socks.Overall a great product!

Promising review: "Well worth the purchase! I absolutely LOVE this brush shampoo! I purchases two bottles, as I do not often make purchases over $25 on Amazon. I was a little skeptical of how well it would clean my brushes since I had never tried it before, but after using this I am very pleased with the outcome.It has a faint 'shampoo scent' but nothing too overpowering, and suds like you wouldn't believe. They got all the way down to the base of the brush and gave it a really good cleaning. One of my brushes is made from boar hair (Estee Lauder powder brush) and I was worried it was going to frizz out and ruin the shape but it actually improved it after I had previously used baby shampoo. It's very soft and not at all coarse feeling.I also used this shampoo on my Beauty Blender, and it did a great job getting all the foundation out.All in all, I'd rate this product a 10/10!" — Katastrophe

person using long brush to clean out the lint trap in a front-load clothes dryer

16. Cleaning your dryer's lint trap regularly with a special brush will help keep the appliance more effective for longer.

Promising review: "Just what I was searching for This lint trap brush did a great job getting down inside and grabbing lint build up. I was shocked at how much lint had not gotten past and not caught in the pull out lint filter. I always thought people were making too big of a deal about dyer fires because of lint buildup, but now, after using this brush I can see how easy it would be for a spark to start a fire. ** SOMETHING TO KEEP IN MIND: Be sure to turn your dryer on and go outside to the exit vent where dryer air escapes from vent hose, because even though this brush loosened and grabbed a lot of lint, my exterior vent on the outside of my house had a huge clump of lint that had been loosened by the brush stuck just inside the vent ." — martie tompkins

Reviewer photo of their German shepherd sitting next to a massive pile of fur that the broom pulled out of the carpetReviewer holding a huge chunk of cat fur that they brushed out of the carpet

17. A broom for pet hair to unearth all that fur stuck in your area rug you've just learned to live with by now. It also works on wood and linoleum. And the handle extends from 36 to 60 inches!

Promising review: "Ridiculously Effective I feel bad that I didn't take pictures to back up what I'm about to tell you, but let me assure you this broom is the real deal! And even as I type this, I'm sort of embarrassed that my house sounds so gross to achieve the results I'm about to reveal to you, but even with daily cleanups (with inadequate tools), there is a lot of hair and dirt that gets tracked around by eight pets and two humans. That said...I have a number of area rugs that, because they're handwoven, I was advised not to vacuum. But, honestly, the crappy little carpet sweeper I had didn't do squat and I'd break down and begrudgingly vacuum them from time to time. Then I started reading reviews about this broom. I was like "Nah...no way...can't be that good..." but I ordered it anyway.HOLY SMOKES!Within just a few light strokes I was pulling up strands of hair and fur that had seemingly become a part of the carpet. And when I say "light strokes" I mean it. I've read some reviews where people say it can be a workout. I suppose that depends on how deep the pile of the carpet or rug is...in my case, it was super easy and within 3 quick minutes I had a disgusting pile of hair and dirt scraped from the surface of my 7x10 area rug. WHERE HAS THIS THING BEEN ALL MY LIFE?!?!?Then I decided to try the carpet in our bedroom. It was a little bit tougher to "sweep" but equally effective. And finally I decided to use the squeegee side, dry, on our wood laminate flooring just to see how it worked. Within 3 strokes I had dirt, hair, and the tiny irritating kitty litter sand granules piling up on the floor. Amazing!I was giddy. My husband thought I'd lost my mind that I was so excited about a cleaning tool. I handed it to him and said "Well, YOU try it..." He smiled and said "Nope! You're not going to trick me like that..." RATS! Almost had him. Anyway, I've only used it a few times and have had ZERO problems, but I can see where people would advise to ditch the telescoping pole and use a solid painter's pole with the metal tip. I will not do that until/unless I have to...If you've made it this far in my review, then thank you...and you must be really bored. But the fact that I wrote so much about a broom/mop/sweeper is even amazing to me. I wouldn't hesitate to give this six stars if I could!" — R Walker

26. An ~intense~ grout cleaner – it can bring blackened grout back from the brink of disgusting because you shouldn't want to wear shoes in the bathroom.

Promising review: "This cleaner brought back the original color of the grout in my kitchen to the color that was originally laid 10 years ago! My order arrived the same day, and I also ordered OXO Good Gripes Deep Clean Brush Set to help scrub this cleaner into the grout really. You have to use quite a lot of the liquid cleaner and to let it soak into the grout before scrubbing (about 3 mins) . I could see the dirt lift off during scrubbing because the liquid was turning brown. There is a noticeable different between pre-clean and post clean. This cleaner does work. After checking the color of the grout in a room that we do not use, but have the same tiles that we do in our kitchen I could see that this cleaner brought back the original color of the grout in my kitchen to the color that was originally laid 10 years ago!I have sensitive skin, and found that I have a burning sensation when using this cleaner on the tiles as well as the grout, so I used disposable latex gloves. The other point to mention is to make sure that your head is not too close to when cleaning so that you do not get any particles in the air that can get into your eyes. They tend to burn a little :)I hope you have found my video, images and opinion to be helpful with your decision process to purchase this item.

I am a huuuuuge germaphobe and this worked well enough for me to actually take a bath at my new place with the jets on.I used the product as directed on the bottle; fill the tub with warm/hot water above the jets (I did 1-2" above) drop in 4oz of product and turn the jets on for 15 minutes. It's nice because the bottle is 16oz and marks points at 4oz,8oz,and 12oz so you don't even need a measuring cup or anything.So the first time I cleaned the tub I used this for the recommended 15 minutes. I wasn't sure what to expect because I just moved in, so I bought a Scum Bug to absorb oils as well. To my surprise, it looked like hardy any oils came out but there were a bit of black and brown specks.I ran just water through after the first treatment with Oh Yuk for 15 minutes with jets on.Next, I used bleach. It's recommended to only use bleach in these tubs for very heavy soiling, and since I am just moving in and didn't know what to expect, I reasoned with myself to use it this one time. I did not mix in any dishwasher detergent because, well, I forgot it at the store lol. I'm going to be maintaining the tub with detergent and Oh Yuk.Anyway, so next I used bleach. Filled tub with water above the jets, poured in bleach, ran jets for 15 minutes. Even less junk came out. Emptied tub, filled with water only, ran jets for another 15 minutes.Then cleaned the tub and shower area with a cleaner, rinsed, and notices that I could move the jets to face different directions.. so I moved them around and cleaned between the crevices. They look shiny for the most part now. Just a few white specks caked on.I came back later and did another round of Oh Yuk for 15 minutes, then water after the Oh Yuk had drained for another 15 minutes.At this point it looked really nice and no more specks were jetting out.The picture I included was after Oh Yuk the last time. I didn't get the heavily soiled look or bubbles like a lot of photos. I wasn't even sure if mine was working lol but it did. I took a bath after this and turned the jets on and the water was still clear.Going to buy some more for maintenance.Also, the instructions for the product are on the bottle. :)" — Ann

spraying a sink full of dirty dishes with the cleaner

29. A dishwashing spray for anyone without a dishwasher (or even with one!) who wishes they could just close their eyes and have someone scrub at baked-on gunk. This dishwashing spray won't scrub for you, but it will make it so you just have to swipe off the gunk and rinse instead!

Promising review: "Overly priced and wrong description My ultimate concern is that the seller is not just jacking up the price. But the seller is also false advertising this item. The picture and description states that the buyer would be getting one spray and 3 refills. I only received 1 spray and 2 refills. This isn’t right. Especially in times on need like now. Not cool at all." — Amazon Customer

car floor with tons of dog fur on itclean car floor

30. A scratchy lil' tool for FINALLY getting all the pet hair off your fabric surfaces both inside your house and car. You'll wonder how you lived without up until now.

Promising review: "AWESOME, A MUST BUY YES it works!! Bonus tip here. Mix about 4 oz of fabric softener in a 32 0z spay bottle and VERY LIGHTLY mist the carpet or floor mats (wet is bad). Use rubber gloves like you would use to wash dishes in really hot water and just use your hands to roll up the pet hair. This will get all that hair in the nooks and other areas you cant use the Fur-Zoff as well as the majority of all the hair. Then bring in the closer. This will get 100% of any hair remaining, it is really great. I have 2 WHITE/GRAY snow dogs and my all black Wrangler interior often looks like a snow storm blew through after even a short trip. Between my rubber glove wipe down and Fur-Zoff I'm absolutely hair free in 15 minutes." — John G. Vincent

32. A stainless steel cleaner is the best way to get rid of all the little paw and fingerprints that mysteriously appear on your kitchen appliances.

Promising review: "FOUND OUT THE HARD WAY TO GO OLD SCHOOL I've tried to use several stainless steel cleaners on my expensive fridge. It kept getting worse. After buying this product, which did absolutely nothing, I realized, based on another reviewer, that indeed it was just polishing without cleaning it. It would just spread the dirt and oil all around! I went the old fashion way and used a paste of baking soda with water. I was scared at first but desperate! Using that solution, my fridge looks brand new! No scratches and it actually cleaned and shined it! Make sure you use a soft wet cloth to apply, soft wet cloth to rinse, and a dry soft cloth to dry. You'll be amazed and your welcome!" — rlew

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

34. A weekly shower cleaner that you can just spray on and forget about for 8-12 hours. It will take care of mold and mildew stains, soap scum, and any other gross grime without you having to lift a finger.

Promising review: "Works great!! I wasn't sure if this would clean my shower doors without me first scrubbing them first but thought I would give it a try. I started just spraying one of the doors so I could compare it to the other door. Within the first couple of days I noticed it started working. I sprayed it every day and within a couple of weeks it looked great. The doors have a pattern in them so they will never look perfectly clear. In the pictures I put a pink hand towel on the sink so it would show up good. The door on the left is the one I didn't spray at all yet and the door on the right is after it was clean. I will definitely continue to use this product." — Gail Carnes

A reviewer photo of the installed system, which clips on to the tank and attaches to two of the toilet's internal tubes

35. An automatic bleach toilet cleaning system is a great way to keep your bathroom clean, even when Rosey the Robot isn't available. This gadget will send cleaner into your bowl with each flush, making it easy to keep your toilet clean and fresh smelling.

Promising review: "COMPARISON OF TOP THREE BRANDS I am writing a review of three toilet cleaning systems I've bought here on amazon:: Uses a cartridge containing a chlorine based tablet. Cartridge is not meant to be refilled. Chlorine odor noticeable in the bathroom. Cartridge can be modified (I used a dremel) so it is easily refilled.: Uses a cartridge containing a chlorine based crystal. Cartridge is not meant to be refilled. Chlorine odor noticeable in the bathroom.: Does not use a cartridge. Bromine tablet refill inserts directly by unscrewing a cap. No odor noticeable in the bathroom.All three of these systems work the same way and all are really easy to install. All of them put a toilet cleaning chemical (tablets or crystals) in-line between the water fill valve and the toilet bowl fill pipe. All of them prevent the chemical from getting into the tank water (so there is no damage to the plastic parts in the tank). All sell refills for their systems. All keep the toilet bowl equally clean for about 1-3 months depending on how often it is flushed.Amazon also sells Pool/Spa Cleaning Chlorine and Bromine tablets, which as far as I can tell do just as good a job keeping the toilets clean as the refills but at a fraction of the cost. I have tried all of the following, each of which provide enough tablets to keep all the toilets in the house clean for 10 years and they are all very cheap:: The tablets fit well in the dremel-tool modified Fluidmaster cartridges. The tablets fit well in the Kaboom. The bathroom has a slight chlorine odor.: The tablets are too large to fit in the Fluidmaster cartridges. The tablets fit well in the Kaboom. No odor.: The tablets fit well in the dremel-tool modified Fluidmaster cartridges. The tablets fit well in the Kaboom. No odor.Chlorine and Bromine are fairly equal in cleaning ability. Chlorine has that chlorine odor. Bromine is broken down by sunlight. Which is why, on a sunny day, outdoor pools use chlorine. But at night, or indoors, or on a cloudy day, they use bromine since there is no smell.Summary. The  system works but the cartridges are expensive. To refill the cartridges easily requires a small modification with a dremel tool. The cartridge is too small for any tablets larger than 1 inch in diameter. The NeverScrub system also works but the cartridges are expensive. What I am using is the  system with the bromine tablets (either the  or the ) as they have no odor and clean just as well as the chlorine tablets." — Amnia

Promising review: "Use denture cleaner tablets instead Bought these hoping that they would remove a funky plastic taste that's developed on all our reusable water bottles. We've tried switching our dishwasher detergent, rinse aid, we used vinegar, baking soda. Finally bought these tablets thinking they'd help. Nope. There's still a gross taste to the water. And I was unable to return the tablets to Amazon. After it failed, I googled around and turns out I should have saved my money and bought denture cleaner tablets and it would have done the same thing at a fraction of the cost." — LawyerMom

blue foaming cleanser pushing its way out of the sink drain

38. Foaming garbage disposal cleaner that you simply throw in your sink (the whole packet!), turn on the water, and watch it fizz up as it does the tough work below on all the gunk that OTHER PEOPLE have let build up in your disposal. You don't see them overzealously dumping, but you KNOW it's happening.

Promising review: "Excellent disposer cleaner! Excellent results in problem disposer! Just received my box of Glisten Disposer Care Foaming Cleaner and took it directly to my disposer which had offended my nose last night.Before going to bed, the odor coming from the disposer was quite unpleasant so I looked around for any available odd cleaners to throw at the problem while awaiting the next day's delivery of Glisten. I threw in about a gallon of ice crescents with generous squeezes of Dawn dishwashing liquid to a running disposer , then hottest water with gallon of cleaning vinegar to control the odor overnight.Just now, I read the Glisten directions, followed them through two complete cycles with two packets.I'm very pleased with the fresh, clean smelling result. I'll be reordering." — ShopSkeptic

39. A bottle of Folex Carpet Spot Remover will quickly make all sorts of horrific stains disappear with no rinsing or vacuuming required.

Promising review: "LOVE!!!!!! So, instead of asking for recommendations, I want to give one.I skimmed an article about amazing cleaning products, and was drawn to this carpet stain remover. Sounded great, especially for the cost. So I got it and tried it on an old doggie pee stain I cannot remove. Well it worked, and it was so fast and easy to use. Spray, rub in with fingers or a scrub brush, wipe up with a dry cloth. Poof - stain is gone! I told my husband, I don't even care if the stain comes back, I'll do that once a week - worth it!STAIN CAME BACK. So a few weeks later, the stain came back, I repeated the process but with more saturation, and more scrubbing. I know it's gross, but I smelled the rag to see if it smelled like dog pee - IT DID. So although I've tried 10 ways to get the stain up, this product actually gets 4 month old, repeatedly cleaned, dog pee stains out of carpets. Just wanted to share because I am in love!!!If the stain comes back, it's needs more spraying, scrubbing, and wiping. That's all." — Michelle Wisk

40. A set of reusable microfiber mop pads (that work with the Swiffer you already own) because those disposable ones seem to disappear like magic in your home and you always end up running out when you need them the most.

Promising review: "Great quality product with amazing results!!! So I received these wonderful reusable mop/ sweep pads that are compatible with my swiffer. I cannot tell you how easy it was to clean my house yesterday.Earlier when I was using the dry swiffer sweep pads; they were constantly falling off and had to keep replacing them multiple times during my cleaning session. But, yesterday that was not the case. Cleaned my living, dining and kitchen hardwood floors with just one single pad. WOW!Now to the quality of the product; I can just tell you that it is one of the best quality product in this category that I have cone across on amazon. The velcro works wonderfullyand the fit is just perfect. I was NOT at all DISAPPOINTED!The final thing in the package that endeared me to this small family owned business is the personal touch that they included and that was the handwritten card that they included. I am so glad that I bought this product and supported a small business. To anyone who might be considering about whether to buy this product or not; please go ahead and do it. You will not regret it!!!" — Amit Rohatgi
