1. A Magic Eraser bath scrubber to eliminate any and every type of bathroom gunk you are probably afraid to admit exists within your home. All you need to do is wet the sponge with water — no solution necessary!

Get a pack of eight sponges from Amazon for $9.88.

These melamine eraser sponges are super tough on stains, but won’t damage your bathroom surfaces.

Promising review: “I never thought I’d be able to get the weird pink soap stains out of my tub. Picture someone scrubbing with cleaning products until their arms were sore, to no avail. But this worked with no effort! It’s unbelievable. Please never let this go off the market!” —Catherine King

2. A rust-removing spray that won’t require scrubbing, but will still produce amazing results. The concentrated gel will cling to stains without running, so all you have to do is wait a couple of minutes and then wipe it away.

Promising review: "I used it on our tubs, toilets, sinks, and shower. It took one bottle of this stuff to achieve the same result as three bottles of other brands. I will buy this again hands down. I just sprayed, walked away for a few minutes, and wiped and rinsed." —Carrie D.Get a 16-ounce bottle from Amazon for $5.48+ (also available as a pack of two).

A pumice stone to remove calcium, lime, and hard-water stains without scratching your toilet bowl or sink. The plastic handle means your hands won’t get dirtied, but we still suggest wearing gloves!

Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in a pack of two).

Promising review: “I’m so embarrassed to show how disgusting my toilets have been, but it’s worth it for me to help anyone who has suffered as I have. We built our house and have lived in it 33 years. We dug a well and the water was beautiful, until air hit it. The copper, iron, and lime are all so high the chart doesn’t even go that high. We have spent thousands on a huge filter that filters all the water coming into the house from the well. My toilets have been disgusting to me, though clean (as clean as I can get them). This pumice stone — HOLY MOLY — my toilets are clean!!!!! I am totally amazed. It took about 30 minutes on each one. The stains are gone.” —Libby Nance

4. A FlexiSnake drain snake that’ll unclog your pipes so you don’t have to spend hundreds on a plumber. It’s covered in thousands of micro hooks that grab hair and other gunk.

Just try not to hurl in the process. You don't even have to take apart the drain to use it; it'll slide right down.Promising review: "Nothing was fixing our bathroom drain issues in the sink AND the tub. The tub was getting so bad that it was dangerous to stand in the shower, because the gross scum buildup made the tub so slippery. Then I ordered this. I was convinced we were going to have to hire a plumber to rip out the whole bathroom to find the problem. I could not believe it — it didn't get stuck in the process and a bunch of disgusting gross stuff came out of the sink drain! I should have been wearing a rain suit with a scuba mask and I definitely should have moved our toothbrushes away from the splatter I wasn't expecting. I repeated this process in the bathtub drain, using the same FlexiSnake. I could not believe what and how much came out. I sent photos to my roommates so they would think I was a genius who spent hours fixing this problem and they'd be grateful and buy me dinner. But, honestly, it took about five minutes (shh)." —ExPatInAsiaGet it from Amazon for $5.28+ (available in two styles).Check out more gross before and after pictures in our spotlight on the FlexiSnake drain snake.

5. Or a similar clog remover so you can finally unplug your pipes. It’ll wiggle its way through your drain, grabbing hair and grime with its textured edges along the way.

Get three from Amazon for $5.89+ (available in two sizes).

Promising review: “This product did exactly what I had hoped it would do. Our bathtub was barely draining and I have really long hair, so I knew there had to be a huge wad of hair clogged down there. We were originally skeptical concerning its durability being plastic, but the price was so low. AMAZING! So Simple! The snake is very durable and the jagged edges make it easy to pull up any debris stuck in the drain or pipe. I’d buy these 100 times over!!” —LuchesKa’s

6. A Clorox and Tilex mold and mildew remover spray, because with so much moisture in the air, you know you’ve got some nasty stuff growing in those hard-to-reach corners and crevices. The solution contains bleach, so you know this is some powerful stuff.

Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (for two bottles, also available in a larger size).

Promising review: “I am almost in tears writing this review right now. For almost two years I’ve been dealing with mold and mildew in my bathroom. It’s covering the walls, the caulk in the bathtub, and the baseboards. I’ve spent so much money on bleach sprays and mold killers that didn’t work. I almost gave up and moved out. I bought this as a last resort and I can’t believe how well it’s working!!! My tub is nearly spotless and the walls are coming clean as well. I am so grateful to this brand and product.” —Jessica N

7. Or try this mold and mildew remover gel to blast out stains that are deeply rooted in your grout. Once you use it, it will help to prevent that icky mold and mildew from returning. And returning.

The gel will cling to spots you apply it to, so it won't run down walls. Promising review: "Wow! I would give this 10 stars if I could. We've had issues for a few years with the caulking behind the handle of our kitchen faucet turning black from mildew. We've scrubbed with what seems like a million different products, with no luck. We were actually just talking about ripping out the caulking and doing a total replacement. But, my husband saw this online the other day and decided to order it. Almost immediately when he applied it, you could see it was starting to work. We left it on overnight and the black is COMPLETELY GONE! It's incredible. 1000% worth the (small) investment." —Nicole D.Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

8. A bottle of Bar Keeper’s Friend that’ll literally tackle any type of grime. It can remove tarnish, lime buildup, rust, caked-on food, and so much more.

Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in larger packs and with detail brushes).

This stuff can be used in the bathroom, the kitchen, and on multiple things outdoors, so consider it super versatile. The scrubbing cloths it comes with are non-scratch and won’t hold odors like most sponges.

Promising review: “I have cleaned this tub several times per week for over a year with no real results. What kills me is it is a BRAND NEW tub. Last year we redid the downstairs bathroom. The contractor’s workers had cement, grout, dirt, etc. on this brand new tub and it is one of those delicate surfaces where you can’t even use a bath mat in order not to damage it. My husband did his best to get most of it out and it was pretty good compared to what it was before. But it still attracted stains that regular cleaners couldn’t remove. Even with the slight damage caused from before, I think the difference is remarkable. I’ve seen people posting about Bar Keepers Friend for stainless steel pots and delicate tubs for years. It’s true. It works.” —N.B.

9. An extra-tough sponge, because sometimes the “soaking and waiting” method doesn’t work. Sometimes you just gotta roll your sleeves up and start scrubbing.

Promising review: "These are my favorite sponges. They don't scratch anything, they don't fall apart (even after I stick them in the dishwasher occasionally), and they don't get stinky like some sponges that I've used in the past." —RollerGirl253Get nine sponges from Walmart for $7.97.It was also selected as our low-price pick for the best kitchen sponges on BuzzFeed Reviews.

10. A pair of OXO brushes for use on dark and dirty grout, shower tracks, and shower corners. The small, nylon bristles will get deep into crevices to lift out dirt.

Get it from Amazon for $5.99 (available in two colors).

Promising review: “This is a big step up from toothbrushes, which I have used for many years prior to buying these. Key improvements over toothbrushes: angled handles that get your hands up and out of the way, the handles are bigger and grippier than a toothbrush,the larger brush has pretty stiff bristles which are great for heavy scrubbing without scratching, the smaller brush has tapered softer bristles on one end (good for cleaning in tight areas), and the rubber nub on the other end of the smaller brush is surprisingly good for cleaning in tight areas. I replaced the four toothbrushes in my cleaning kit with these.” —jfb

We love a good cleaning!
