A mold and mildew remover so you can finally be free of those unsightly black splotches on your tile grout that semi gross you out…but not enough to actually clean.

A pack of dishwasher cleaning tablets, because yes, you have to clean the dishwasher. They’ll blast away limescale and mineral buildup for you so you can skip the bleach and end up with cleaner dishes. How? Hard water can leave behind white crusty deposits on both your glasses and plates as well as the dishwasher itself. A good cleaning every now and then can help ensure your dishes emerge sparkling clean.
A pet hair remover for anyone loves their fur baby but also loves not having their outfit ruined by sitting on a furry chair. Roll it over your couch, bed, favorite blanket, you name it, and watch it lift the fur away. See, we can own nice things!!
A pack of foaming garbage disposal cleaner to deodorize your sink after you got lazy and let one too many pieces of food go down the drain knowing full well that you don’t have a garbage disposal. 🙃
A heavy-duty vacuum, because your carpets deserve some TLC too. (And TBH, this one probably works better than your old vacuum.) Bissell’s Cleanview Swivel Pet has a special brush that penetrates carpet to suck up pet hair as well as specialized attachments specifically designed to swallow fur in hard-to-reach areas, like the stairs and in corners. AND! Bissell donates a portion of its sales to its pet foundation, which aims to find homes for the millions of fur babies in shelters around the country. (I’m not crying, you are! 😭)
A set of oven liners that’ll catch crumbs before they burn and get baked on. We both know the chances of you actually cleaning the oven are, well, slim, so the least you can do is get yourself a pack of these and save yourself the mess.
A set of silicone coasters, because you’re an adult and that means no more leaving behind water stains. Not only will they save you from spending some serious time and effort scrubbing away water rings, but they’ll also potentially prevent you from spilling coffee or wine thanks to their grooved surface.
A microwave steam cleaner for melting away the baked-on crud that’s clung to the sides of your microwave since, well, we’re not exactly sure how long it’s been there but suffice it to say it’s been awhile. Just remove Angry Mama’s head and pour a mixture of water and vinegar in her body. Then, reattach her head and microwave her for seven minutes. The steam comes out through holes in her hair and softens pasta sauce stains and melted cheese so you can remove it with just a few wipes.
A bottle of Bar Keepers Friend cleanser so your stainless steel pots and pans look presentable instead of covered with mystery stains. It’s also safe to use on porcelain, brass, aluminum, ceramics, and glass.
A handheld vacuum that’ll be your favorite sidekick when you’ve let the mess go for too long and need a serious solution to pet hair. It has a special rubber nozzle that picks up fur with ease, especially on hard-to-vacuum areas like stairs. There’s no bag, so simply pop off the canister when you’re done vacuuming and dump the contents in the trash.
A pack of stain-removing pads for the inevitable messes that come with drunkenly ordering Chinese food at 1 a.m. and mistakenly believing you’re sober enough to handle chopsticks. Just press the pad onto a stain, let it sit, and remove in a few hours to a clean carpet. (These are made for pet stains, but they work just as well on wine, coffee, soda, and even blood.)
A set of mesh undergarment bags so you can wash your delicates without ruining the underwire. (RIP that beautiful bra you got to wear like twice before the dryer destroyed it.)

A pack of bottle-cleaning tablets that’ll remove stains and stinky smells after you accidentally left coffee in your mug a few too many times.

A drill brush kit that’ll forgive you for weeks and weeks of forgetting to scrub the tub. It comes with three different heads to take the work out of cleaning your bathroom. Just attach the brush head and flip the switch on your drill. Why work harder when you could work smarter?
A pack of cord clips so you can finally untangle your jumble of cables. Each wire gets its own clip, so you won’t have to bother testing every cord until you find your phone charger.
A shoe shine kit that’ll restore the boots you already own instead of spending more money on a new pair. It’s officially boot season, so get shining!

A hanging jewelry organizer to help you finally put your necklaces and earrings in order (because they’re currently in one huge tangled pile). It comes with 32 clear pockets and 18 hooks so you’ll finally stop your really bad habit of buying cheap earrings because you know you’ll lose them after a week…and then buying another cheap pair to replace those.
A pack of iPhone chargers for the person who’s notorious for losing theirs. If Apple had a rewards program, you’d be a platinum member.
A leather recoloring balm to transform your years-old furniture so it looks less like it spent four years in a college dorm and then three years with roommates (even if it did) and more like it’s straight from the factory floor.
