As a former editor at Really Simple magazine, I’ve come across my share of homegrown products. Cleansing was one of my passions, so I was always trying out the latest mop or updated exfoliating brush. (What can I say, it was a shiny job.) And now that I’m a mom to two amazing but ridiculously messy kids, I’ve really put these cleaning products to use. I definitely have my favorites – the ones I try to grab every time soy sauce finds its way onto the walls or cracker crumbs invade the crevices of my keyboard (which unfortunately happens more than I care to admit). As someone who knows how to tidy up, I decided to share my top nine products with you. Some are the best of the basics—like this microwave cleaner—while others are amazing new inventions, like a mini electric grout tool that looks like an electric toothbrush. To say these are satisfying is an understatement. Put some in your cart and clean up!


Homwe professional silicone oven

$13$18Save $5

$13 on Amazon

These might be one of my favorite inventions ever: BPA-free silicone gloves that you can use to move hot pots and pans, as well as maneuver around the grill. Here’s the genius part: They’re completely waterproof, so if you accidentally dip your feet in some hot soup, the gloves won’t absorb it.


Topist Angry Mama Microwave Cleaner

$8$16Save $8

$8 on Amazon

This gizmo uses steam to loosen up all that baked-on grime. Simply remove the hair, fill with water and vinegar, and watch Angry Mama get really pissed off as she shoots hot steam all over the inside. Then wipe with a damp cloth. It’s incredibly fun to use!


Norpro My Favorite Colored Scraper, 5-pack


$8 on Amazon

I eat eggs every morning and I’m a mess. Before these wonderful gizmos, I would grab a paper towel to clean off the egg residue before using a scrubbing brush. These pan scrapers are a breeze and can also be used to remove stickers from new glassware and dishes.


Oxo Good Grips Electronics Cleaning Brush


$9 on Amazon

I eat over the keyboard. This retractable cleaning tool makes me feel like a detective working on a top secret case. I take it off and brush the crumbs between those keys, then use the silicone side to remove any crud. Ideal for detailing watches, cameras and mobile phones.

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not a member yet? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
