Promising review: “This is an excellent product that I cannot say enough good things about. I had thrown away my current Keurig machine thinking it was broken. I decided to try to resurrect it using these cleaners and I am glad I did! One cup took care of years of neglect on my part (lesson learned). Because there was so much cleaning needed, I used two cups, and now the machine works perfectly. So glad I discovered this product and highly recommend. I am thinking a three-month interval to keep the machine in good condition. Thank you so much!” —Susan

Promising review: “This is the second one that I have purchased because I LOVE IT! I love fact that it is small and compact enough to either sit on my desk at home or fit in my desk at work. I also enjoy the fact it is dual-sided — one side to wipe the screen and the other to brush away dust, dirt, food crumbs from my keyboard. It is a great buy and worth it. Not to mention it is made by a company with quality products, OXO.” —💜Kiki.L.G💜

Promising review: “I just bought my first house and because of COVID I have not had the funds I wanted to fix it up. This was cheap and the backsplash in my new kitchen was an eyesore. I wasn’t expecting much because of the price and I am absolutely stunned. My kitchen looks so much better! It was easy to use, no odor, and quick! I did two coats because the color was dark brown. Some places I did more but I didn’t mind doing it because it was actually really satisfying. I used one pen for the area pictures plus some. Definitely recommend this product!” —Kim

Promising review: “So useful! Thought I’d never be able to clear my drain after using gallons and gallons of Drano (which add up). But these took out the hair that was clogging my shower for months within a minute! Such easy use and definitely would recommend this to anyone who needs it.” —Cal

Promising review: “I never knew how badly I needed this product until I used it. We recently moved into a new home and I saw this as a recommended product when I was buying disposal cleaning packets. We’ve never had a disposal and I’m genuinely disgusted with how dirty the garbage disposal was at my new house. Thank goodness I found this — now I’ll be using it regularly to ensure it’s never that raunchy again.” —kristen a. collins

Promising review: “This is a fun product to use! I do recommend using it with a disposal scrub brush, since I hadn’t cleaned my disposal in…many many centuries…it took a little scrubbing in addition to get all the grime out. This made the process MUCH easier though, and I love the foam that bubbles up. It’s as fun to watch as it is good at cleaning. I’d buy again sometime.” —Leslie

Promising review: “Rarely do I ever write reviews but I’m so impressed with this kit that I just had to! I have a 3-year-old Maytag gas range and never having owned one myself, I definitely slacked on keeping it pristine. Sure I would wipe it down after cooking but didn’t realize the grease that gets ‘baked’ on around the burners. Which left it looking dull and kinda gross. I pretty much lost hope that it would ever look like new again but then I bought this kit. The scraper was a miracle worker. It took off every spec of baked on anything leaving my range looking like it was just out of the box!!” —Jen G.

Promising review: “I never knew I needed dishwasher cleaner. I found this product in a BuzzFeed article. The reviews were so great I just knew i had to try it. I was pretty blown away by what the inside of my dishwasher looked like after. It wasn’t funky dirty per say, but it definitely looked aged. It was also noticeably fresher once opened versus just meh.” —Shasha

Promising review: “I never knew I was supposed to clean my HE machine after about three years of use. I just did it for the first time, and the water was disgusting. I had to vacuum out crud from the barrel after the tub clean cycle was done, and run two more rinses without any clothes/detergent to see clear water. I’m grossed out that my clothes haven’t really been getting clean, and will make this tub clean a monthly routine now.” —Lauren&Aaron

Promising review: “I am so glad I bought this device. After about 20 minutes of use, which included assembly and experimentation, I had succeeded in pulling out an ugly glob of wet, compacted lint from my dryer vent pipe. That huge pile of yuck on the ground represented about 13 years of accumulation. It also represented a fire hazard and drain on my electrical bill. So, I’m glad I bought this device. Clothes dry in FAR less time. Even though the device is intuitive and easy to assemble and use, there are clearly written instructions that also give some advice on dryer connections. Now that I’m unclogged, I plan to use the device periodically to prevent this problem in the future.” —Couerleroi

Promising review: “This stuff is incredible! Our oven hasn’t been cleaned since we inherited it from the previous owners of our house almost four years ago and after one coat of this product sitting overnight, our oven is almost brand-new looking! No odor, not even an unpleasant smell, will most definitely purchase again.” —Amazon Customer

It even has a minty scent, so you don’t have to worry about that harsh chemical smell most cleaning products usually emit.

Promising review: “I have tried for weeks to get rid of some very tough hard water stains on my glass shower panel. They had been there for three years while my apartment was rented and never cleaned. I have tried just about everything from toothpaste, to vinegar, to different types of chemical products. Then I found this product…PURE MAGIC!!! The non-toxicity of the product is definitely a plus, it doesn’t smell bad and doesn’t sting your lungs like some hard chemicals do. Its biodegradability is a plus! I feel better knowing I’m not dumping some more toxic chemicals down the drain. Most importantly, it works!!! After 10 minutes of work it has removed 90% of the hard water stains that simply would not come off in the past!!” —O.R

Promising review: “I couldn’t believe this until I really tried it. Although my friend recommended this to me a couple of times, I didn’t really expect it would work but it really did work!! Our microwave stays a hot mess as we use it to heat all the food delivery during this pandemic time for piece of mind. Taking care of our 5-month old and working from home didn’t leave us much time to thoroughly clean the microwave — we tried a few times but gave up as it’s so time consuming to clean all the surfaces inside of the microwave — Angry Mom is soooo impressive and makes cleaning the microwave so much fun! Try it!!” —Katie Q

Promising review: “I hate to clean blinds. I’ve tried every method you could imagine but none really did a good job. While looking at the internet for something to make the job easier i found the Hiware window blind cleaner duster brush. The price was more than affordable so I thought I would give it a shot. This little device is genius and the microfiber sleeves are so easy to throw in the washer and ready for the next time.” —Northwest Gal

Promising review: “Love this under-the-couch,-bed,-fridge, -stove duster…it’s a lifesaver, so easy to use and easy to clean, just toss in washer. Can use wet or dry.” —Camelrider

Promising review: “Wow, after 10 years in our house I had pretty much given up on getting our toilets looking nice again. You have kids who forget to flush? I thought I’d have a nasty-looking toilet for the rest of time…until I discovered this tool! Holy wow, when I tell you that I have spent HOURS trying to clean the toilet before (with no results) and this thing made it SPARKLING WHITE in less than five minutes I’m not joking! Never again will I settle for toilet rings or stained toilet bottoms. This tool will do the job for you, just scrub and it’s gone!” —Lilac28

Promising review: “While refinishing a China cabinet, I put a paint brush with furniture stripper on a tarp on the dining room table and forgot about it. The stripper bled through the tarp and took the finish off a 2” x 3” area of the tabletop. I thought the table was ruined. I ordered this product because I was desperate. I didn’t think it would help. I was wrong! The markers worked beautifully. Only I know the table was damaged.” —Norasusan

Promising review: “I was hesitant to purchase this because I was concerned it would be too lightweight to stay in place on my counter. When it arrived, my hesitation immediately dissolved. The rack is great! I placed it in the corner of my counter and loaded it up with a pizza stone, muffin tins, baking sheets, and lids. I love it and it cleaned up the clutter in my cupboards. Very happy with my purchase.” —Carolinabuckeye89

Promising review: “These were EXTREMELY useful to me, I like them a lot. I have a very busy workspace at home, with two monitors and a tablet and big keyboard, speakers, NAS drive, etc., and it was very cluttered. But with these I managed to clean it up A TON. Now it looks much nicer, is much cleaner, and safer. Definitely would recommend getting these if you have a bunch of stray cables hanging around your desk area and such. After I zip-tied all of my big bundles of cables and adapters and such together and up and down the desk, I wrap these around the bundles for a nice, clean…less hazardous look —Aaron

Promising review: “After years of neglecting my carpet with spills, pets and normal wear and tear. This carpet cleaner cleaned the carpet with ease and brought it back to life with no issues.” —Arie H

Promising review: “This stuff is like magic! Straight up wizardry. I love it! I initially bought it to clean my sink, which is porcelain. I’d say it took less than a minute after making a paste with Bar Keepers Friend to clean the sink up to a nearly new shine. It’s easy to find bunches of ways to use this stuff and each application is better than the last. Stainless steel, porcelain, ceramic, copper, brass, fiberglass, corian, chrome and aluminum. See? Magic! Anyhow, I’ve used it in the bathroom, to clean stainless steel pots and pans, on a 17-year-old Revereware tea kettle (which I thought would never be restored to its former loveliness, btw). This is a product that I will buy again and again and will happily recommend to anyone.” —Nicci Stephenson

Promising review: “Wow, I was just diagnosed with dust mite allergy. I ordered this along with hypoallergenic mattress pad, pillows, pillow cases and a comforter. After become increasingly ill over the last several years, it was a relief to have a diagnosis. I cannot believe all of the stuff that this little cleaner pulled out of my couch, pillows and mattress. I had even more come out the second time around. I will continue to vacuum them daily. I’m sitting on my couch for the first time in months without coughing!” —Victoria Jones

Promising review: “I’ve tried everything to clean my pendant lights. The grease from the kitchen just gets on them and using regular cleaning liquids just smears it. I was very doubtful in using these towels but decided to give it a shot. With water ONLY these lights were cleaned in the matter of minutes. I would def recommend these towels.” —The Muryns

Promising review: “This is my go-to all-purpose cleaner! It doesn’t leave streaks like some bleach product do and it smells fantastic! It actually makes me WANT to clean my counters!” —heatskitchen
