The Reusable Paper Towels
Grove Collaborative European Dish Cloths (2-Pack)
Grove Co. grove.co

The European Dish Cloths from Grove Collaborative are a cross between a paper towel and a sponge. 

They’re made of a cellulose and cotton blend that makes them resilient and reusable for wiping down the same surfaces on a regular basis (like your kitchen table or counters) that get a little grimy, but not filthy.

The Small But Mighty Scrubber
Rubbermaid Reveal Power Scrubber
Rubbermaid amazon.com

Tackle stubborn grout grime and sink stains with this ingenious battery-operated scrubber. This spring cleaning product is the size of an electric toothbrush, but with a slightly angled head that's designed to clean those tough crevices that your squeegee can never quite reach.

The All-in-One Dish Brush
Scotch-Brite Heavy Duty Advanced Soap Control Dishwand Brush
Scotch-Brite amazon.com

This genius 2-in-1 product is a must-have for home cooks and bakers who do a lot of scouring on a regular basis. Instead of shredding your sponges (or worse, using a knife) in an attempt to scrub off stubborn baked-on bits, this Dishwand Brush from Scotch-Brite helps you work smarter, not harder. 

The refillable wand can be filled up with the dish soap of your choice, and then it dispenses as much as you need with the push of a button. From there, you can use it to scrub away debris on your dishes all in one fell swoop — just pre-soak your dishes to help loosen the gunk!

The Essential Set of Gloves
Mr. Clean Duet Natural Latex Gloves
Mr. Clean amazon.com

The kitchen and bathroom can both be pretty scary in an unkempt state, so you might want to suit up before heading in there. 

This dual foot-long set of flexible latex gloves has a flocked cotton lining for a more comfortable feel, and the contrasting colors let you relegate each pair to a separate section of the house, and ne'er the two shall meet again. Wash them with hot, soapy water to clean, hang them to dry, and they'll be ready to use over and over again.

The COVID-Killing Sanitizer
Microban 24 Hour Disinfectant Sanitizing Spray
Microban amazon.com

Along with your seasonal deep cleaning, it's a good idea to keep high-contact hard and soft surfaces in your home as sanitized as possible, especially while the public health crisis is still in effect. 

Microban 24 is a Product of the Year award winner and it's also been approved by the EPA to kill COVID-19. Its sanitizing and disinfecting formula forms a bacteria-fighting layer that binds to a sprayed-down surface when it is left to dry completely. Although it has a strong citrus scent, the peace of mind is worth the regular spritz on areas like doorknobs, fridge handles, sinks, and railings.

The Must-Have Toilet Bowl Cleaner
Lysol Hydrogen Peroxide Toilet Bowl Cleaner
Lysol amazon.com

Hopefully, scrubbing down the toilet is already a part of your weekly cleaning regimen! For households that want to transition away from using harsh bathroom cleaners, this Lysol toilet bowl cleaner contains disinfecting hydrogen peroxide instead of potent bleach.

The Dust-Attracting Cloths
MR.SIGA Microfiber Cleaning Cloths (12-Pack)
MR.SIGA amazon.com

Microfiber cleaning cloths pick up dust and small debris like no other. If you’re diligent about washing them, they can last for years and years, sparing countless paper towels and single-use sweeping cloths from the garbage. 

We like using them on surfaces of any height in the home: up high to clean the ceiling fan, at eye-level to dust bookshelves and countertops, and down low to pick up bits on the floor that our vacuum might miss.

The Only Brushes You’ll Ever Need
Multipurpose Cleaning Brush Set
ANERONG amazon.com

Not all brushes work for the same jobs — after all, you wouldn’t clean your oven with the same brush for cleaning your shower. Stocking up on this set of inexpensive scrub brushes will help you keep a variety at the ready to use for the tasks that you need to tackle on a weekly or seasonal basis.

The Shower Grime Cleaner
Clorox Tilex Mold & Mildew Remover (2-Pack)
Tilex amazon.com

For the quickest, surest clean of your bathtub and tiles, reach for the Clorox Plus Tilex Mold & Mildew Remover. It was the most potent bathtub cleaner of our in-house test of these products

While this bleach-enhanced formula has a very strong smell, it works as an effective deep cleaner on tough grime — exactly as it should.

The Smart Mop System
O-Cedar EasyWring Spin Mop & Bucket System
O-Cedar walmart.com

There are shortcut products out there, but real mopping makes a big difference in the look of your floors. This top-rated kit makes the job as painless as possible, including a short-fiber mop and bucket with lever-activated wringing. 

It’s great for using with a natural, fresh-smelling cleaner like Aunt Fannie’s vinegar-based floor cleaner.

WHOOSH! Screen Cleaner Kit
WHOOSH amazon.com
$13.99 (30% off)

As often as we stare into our screens, we don’t always see the dust and fingerprints that accumulate there until they’re turned off. And instead of reaching for the Windex, why not use the same solution that Apple stores use to keep their displays looking sharp? 

The WHOOSH! Screen Cleaner is a nontoxic formula that works on any type of glass, mirror, or screen. The kit comes with microfiber cloths that are specifically designed not to leave streaks in its wake.

If you're starting from square one with your spring cleaning products, there's no better set to buy than the Blueland Clean Up Kit

It includes three shatterproof bottles and three water-soluble tablets. These tablets comprise Earth-friendly ingredients that are still potent enough to break down grease and grime in any area of the home, and they’re also certified safe by environmental agency Cradle to Cradle and were tested by the agency's third-party assessors.

Get to all of the cracks and crevices (and even the crumbs inside of your oven) easily with the Black+Decker Dustbuster's extendable needle-nose nozzle. Its easy-to-clean, bagless dirt bowl can be dumped or rinsed without fuss, and the filter inside can be washed and reused, so you don't have to keep buying replacements. 

This handheld vacuum's lithium-ion battery is long-lasting and ensures the device always works at full power. Plus, its charging dock juices up the device quickly and is easy to use.

The Vacuum That Makes Cleaning Fun
Dyson V11 Outsize Stick Vacuum
Dyson dyson.com

If you want to turn vacuuming into a chore that you actually want to do more often, splurging on a Dyson vacuum is well worth it. These devices are lightweight and cordless, and they pack a lot of power. 

Our senior electronics editor specifically touts the V11 Outsize model, which has a 25% wider head than previous Dyson vacuums. He also says, “It’s extremely powerful, it delivers a long runtime, and it includes plenty of useful attachments.”

The Reliable Cleaning Set
INVOSON Magnetic Broom and Dustpan Set
INVOSON amazon.com

Sure, a Swiffer has its uses, but it’s no broom. This long-handled broom and dustpan set might be a few dollars more than you’d expect to spend, but its magnetic attachment means that it snaps together to store easily, and you can wall-mount it so that it takes up absolutely no floor space. 

The broom head is flexible, rotating 180 degrees to get into tight corners under your furniture, and the dustpan tilts back when it's lifted, ensuring that the debris doesn’t spill out after you’ve brushed it in.

A Duster That Reaches Everywhere
OXO Good Grips Microfiber Extendable Duster
OXO amazon.com

When was the last time you dusted your walls or around the top of your windows? You might be surprised by the amount of dust that’s hiding in plain sight. Instead of lugging a step stool from place to place, an extendable duster, like this one from OXO, is the solution. 

This 2-foot-long duster can extend up to 4.4 feet long, and its angled head lets you dust hard-to-reach crevices and too-high shelves with ease. The fuzzy red microfiber pad is machine-washable, and you can even buy extras.

Karcher WV 1 Plus Window Vacuum

If your home has a lot of windows, getting them all sparkling clean at once can be a serious chore. One way to cut down on time (and save you from an afternoon of scrubbing) is to use Karcher’s Window Vacuum. 

This editor-favorite, rechargeable device works just like a hand vacuum, but specifically for your windows. It both squeegees and sucks up your cleaning solution, leaving no streaks in its path!

The Cleanser That Just Won’t Quit
Bar Keepers Friend Soft Cleaner
Bar Keepers Friend homedepot.com

For buffing out the hard-water marks on stainless steel refrigerators or porcelain sinks, Bar Keepers Friend is a great cleaner to keep around. 

Not only can you refresh the surfaces and fixtures in your kitchen and bathroom, but it also does wonders in restoring the sheen to your cookware and knife sets — just make sure you give them a good wash afterwards.

Plus, if you frequently dye your hair at home, I’ve found that this cream cleanser works unbelievably well to get hair dye stains out of the tub and tiles. 

24 of 30
The Degunking Grate Cleaner
Goo Gone Oven and Grill Cleaner
Goo Gone amazon.com

Cleaning the grill and oven is easier said than done because certain grease spots and baked-on bits can be tough to scrub off. 

Goo Gone is a reliable grill cleaner to use with a long-handled brush. It'll help dissolve carbon deposits and food residue both in and outside of both appliances.

25 of 30
The Cleaner That Leaves Stainless Steel Sparkling
Weiman Stainless Steel Cleaner Kit
Weiman amazon.com

This stainless steel cleaner from Weiman easily wipes away cooking residue and water stains without you needing to buff out the streaks afterward, and it also imparts a protective layer of polish that helps stave off grime for longer.

We like that one comes in a handy three-piece kit, including a handy tube of wipes for quick smudge busting and a spray bottle and microfiber cloth for the deep-clean treatment. The microfiber cloth, in fact, is Good Housekeeping Research Institute-certified for its inventive dual-sided design — one side is for cleaning while the other is for polishing.

The Pet-Hair Remover
ChomChom Roller
ChomChom amazon.com
$24.95 (29% off)

While just about any home can use a high-quality lint roller, it’s a non-negotiable cleaning product for households with pets. The ChomChom is one of our favorites because it’s just as effective as an adhesive lint roller and as easy to use as a hand vacuum, but it doesn’t have any disposable parts or require batteries to work! 

To use, just rub it up and down your hair-covered surface, and it’ll naturally attract embedded fur and fibers with its static charge.

The Apartment Dweller’s Window Cleaner
Tyroler Bright Tools The Glider S-1 Magnetic Window Cleaner
Tyroler Bright Tools amazon.com

If the outside of your windows is tricky to clean, this clever magnetic cleaning tool offers a smart solution. 

The Tyroler Window Cleaner uses microfiber cloth pads attached to its very strong magnets to allow you to maneuver it and clean spritzes of cleaning solution at the same time. It’s available in different sizes to accommodate different glass thicknesses.

The Stain Stick That Saves You From Scrubbing
OxiClean Max Force Gel Stain Remover Stick
OxiClean walmart.com

Time to tackle those old stains once and for all! OxiClean's Gel Stick helps to lift tricky stains like blood, oil, ink, and grass. It also works as a pretreating solution, letting you swipe it on for up to 7 days before you actually get around to washing the garment in question.

A Sneaky Scratch Remover
DAIXI Wood Markers
DAIXI amazon.com

Scuffs happen, and it can be really hard not to freak out when they do. If a small scuff in your wooden table legs, doors, or floors is raising your blood pressure every time you look at it, an inexpensive solution is to get this set of wood markers. 

Yes, they are essentially brown-colored markers and crayons, but they help fill in discolorations and scratches, rendering them near-invisible. They’re a smart buy for renters, too.

The Cult-Favorite Scrubbers
Scrub Daddy Sponges (3-Pack)
Scrub Daddy amazon.com

These sponges do more than just dishes! Keep a stockpile of the nonabrasive Scrub Daddy sponges on hand to tackle dirty kitchen jobs like scrubbing your sink, the inside of your fridge and microwave, and your entire oven. 

Their proprietary FlexTexture foam softens in hot water and hardens in cold water, so you can choose how stiff you need your scrubber to be. These sponges can get ridiculously grimy, but their foam washes out clean over and over again.
