9 Cleaning Gadgets That Work as Crazy-Hard as you Do

The coffee grounds your other half left percolating on the counter. The pet hair adding an extra layer onto the sofa cushions. The invisible film of germs on every surface. All of these are irksome under normal circumstances, but will downright make you want to lose your mind when you’re spending more time at home under social distancing. We can relate, which is why we rounded up SwearBy-approved cleaning gadgets and supplies that will help you and your household clean up your acts — and fast. 

TriNova Pet Stain & Odor Remover

This is incredible!!! I’ve had a stain in my carpet forever! I couldn’t get it out. Over time it got worse & nothing I tried could lift the stain. Enter TriNova Pet Stain Remover. Not only does it smell fresh, but the enzymes in this cleanser completely abolished that stain. It was instant! I left it for a tad longer than necessary but 3-5 mins is all I really needed. After it dried, I vacuumed up the spot & was really pleased. If you have pets, you need this product. Even an old stain can be removed & your carpet will look great again.”—Vanessa Duran

Dyson Stick Vacuum

I now wake up early just to vacuum before work because I love this thing so much! Makes it easy to clean every inch of my apartment without having to move all the furniture. Sucks up every tiny piece of dirt in my apartment & cleans up every piece of animal fur. It’s a lifesaver.”—Gennie Brummel

Public Goods Walnut Scrubber Sponge

Not only is this sponge sustainably sourced and non-toxic, but the scrubber side is tough on cooked-on messes. Plus, it looks much nicer on the side of the sink than the typical blue or yellow synthetic sponge.”—Katie Holdefehr

Mrs. Meyer's Lavender Multi-Surface Everyday Cleaner

This product is so useful! While different cleaners are needed for thorough, deep cleans, this spray cleaner is perfect for everyday use. I go through so many bottles! For example, I like to wipe the counter with this spray after every meal. I also use it to clean my puppy’s crate every couple of days. It leaves behind the best smell, and no trace of dog! 😂”—Sophia Lanzante

Dyson V6 Trigger Origin Handheld Vacuum

You need this, it has basically eliminated me grabbing my big, hefty vacuum from the closet. This scoops up everything, which is especially helpful when my 11-month-old charmingly hurls PIECES of avocado on the floor.”—Sas Simon

Clorox Hydrogen Peroxide Disinfectant Cleaning Wipes, 155 Ct

“Okay, not a sexy purchase but a LIFESAVER when you have kids! These wipes are disinfecting powerhouses. They don’t have a chemical scent either and they even kill the dreaded stomach bug (Norovirus). I can’t recommend them enough!”—Lauren Kay Soufleris

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Extra Durable Cleaning Pads

Two boys. Two dogs. Life. This thing erases it all. Marks on walls, furniture, those annoying deodorant marks on your fav black shirt — this gets it ALLLL out. Always have some on hand!”—Leigh McMahon

iRobot Roomba 960

We had a very early model Roomba that was doing okay after years of use. It quit charging so after about a month of vacuuming with our upright, we bought this model no was schooled and disgusted with how much dirt it picked up! I love that I can run the Roomba while my kids are sleeping and it’s not that loud, or I can run it from my phone while we’re gone. This keeps my house looking presentable!”—Marie Schutte

Dyson Pure Cool Me Air Purifier

While the temperature outside continues to yo-yo between 75° and 45°, my landlord insists on keeping our radiators at full blast. This small-but-mighty fan has made a tremendous difference in keeping me comfortable while I WFH. It pushes air a couple of feet and oscillates so I’m not sitting under a breeze blast. And not only is it incredibly quiet, but it also filters out the hair that my feline coworker leaves behind.”—Katie Macdonald
