Whether you love it or hate it, cleaning is a part of life… and we can ALL agree that a sparkling clean home beats a messy one.
Here at GiddyUp, we’re split between those who find cleaning to be relaxing… and those who can’t stand it. (At all.)
But if there’s one thing BOTH groups can agree on, it’s that cleaning shouldn’t be harder than it has to be. And these days, there are TONS of incredible innovations that make household chores easier, more efficient and even safer.
Below you’ll find 15 of our favorite cleaning innovations. They’re all perfect for different uses, so be sure to check out the whole list!
1. This 8-in-1 Silicone Mat has endless uses – no wonder it’s a Shark Tank winner!
Promising Review: “Saw this on shark tank and ordered it right away. I wasn’t sure how much I would like this but wow what a great product. Love it!!! Very helpful in the microwave. I always had issues with taking hot things out. This really solved the problem! Can’t imagine not having it!” – DRW
2. Eliminate nasty odors (and soak up harmful moisture) with these Silver Ion cleaning sticks!
Promising Review: “Nothing had worked to remove odors. After a few uses, the odor was absolutely neutralized. And I emphasize neutralized. The product does not just mask the odor with some overpowering scent. I would definitely recommend.” – Grace
3. Lose something under the couch? Don’t want to touch that nasty rag? This “ultimate grabbing tool” is your answer!
Promising Review: “This pickup tool is great. At work I have one of those desks that, once you drop something behind or beside it, that item is gone forever. This pickup tool has allowed me to retrieve some lost items, including magnets with the magnet tool. I am very happy with it! Now I’ll take it home and use it to get things from behind the dressers without moving them. This tool is going to save me some back strain!” – Kindle
4. You keep your house clean, you keep your hands clean… but is your PHONE clean?! (With this nanotech cleaner, it’ll sparkle!)
Promising Review: “I swear the last time my phone screen was this clean and smudge-less was when I first took it out of the box. Extremely easy to use and super portable. All my friends and coworkers gave been asking where they can get one.” – Verified Customer
5. Prevent Pee Puddles (And Freshen Up Your Toilet) With GlowBowl Fresh
GlowBowl Fresh automatically lights up your toilet when someone uses the bathroom at night. No more “Oops, I missed!”
Even better? It keeps your bathroom smelling fresher! Each device comes with a replaceable air freshener that provides months of odor protection. It’s clean, useful, and fun – excellent traits for any toilet!
6. This jetted tub cleaner that, trust us, you NEED if you have a tub (or hot tub) with jets. Let’s just say it’s called “Oh Yuk” for a reason…
Promising Review: “Oh my gosh! You think your tub is clean and then you see what comes out with this!
I followed the directions (fill tub over jets, pour in cleaner, turn on jets). Almost immediately, this disgusting residue shot out. And then most came out as the chemical had time to circulate. So glad I got this cleaner instead of sitting in filth, especially because we just bought a new house and I thought, “Maybe I should try to find out if there is a special cleaner for these tubs”. Glad I did and can know my tub is cleaned out.” – Angela B.
7. This pet hair roller that picks up dog and cat hair instantly. It’s like magic…
Promising Review: “Where has this been all my crazy cat-loving life? Sticky rollers work fine for clothes but this is the only product that has ever COMPLETELY removed all the cat hair from my bed. I have a long-haired 20-lb. tabby and if you run your hands up his back a few times and fling the hair everywhere, it looks like it’s snowing – he never stops shedding no matter what I do. After using the ChomChom, I can put on a black dress and roll around on my bed and not get a single hair on me. It’s absolutely amazing. Everyone is getting one for Christmas, even if they don’t have a pet. I don’t care, it’s THAT good.” – Stephanie
8. The ultimate slayer of grout: a brush head that looks like a toothbrush but fits perfectly into those hard-to-reach spots.
Just don’t, you know, mistake it for a toothbrush.
Promising Review: “This thing is amazing! It cleans grout & hard water stains with ease! I just cleaned the tile in my kitchen and look at the difference! I simply heated up a 50/50 solution of vinegar and dawn, sprayed it on, then let this thing do the scrubbing for me! The whole kitchen took 10 minutes!” – Jc
9. If you have a stinky garbage disposal (or worse – if you’re afraid to check), these cleaning tablets will bravely get the job done for you. Just drop one in!
Promising Review: “Holy cow I didn’t realize how easy and quick it was to clean a garbage disposal until I bought this product! Typically, in my naïve thinking, I’d just use vinegar and baking soda down the drain and call it good. Little did I know that there was an actual cleaning product available until I stumbled across it through an article online. So of course, I had to try it. Very simple instructions, literally takes 5 minutes and some hot water and VOILA! you have a clean, no-longer-stinky garbage disposal. The smaller bag lasted me about 6 weeks, as I didn’t feel the need the clean the disposal weekly like the packaging recommended. But let me say that anytime I got a whiff of an odor, all I did was drop one of those packs in the disposal and the smell was GONE! Plus the blue foam bubbling through the sink was amusing to watch ;-). Worth every penny!!” – Wyrmwood
10. This toilet bowl ring remover that works WONDERS on even the toughest rings… all it takes is a quick swipe!
Promising Review: “Oh my WOW! I was able to scrub the impossible to remove ring out of my toilet in under 2 minutes! In the last 7 years, everywhere we have lived has had hard water. The last place we lived had those rings really bad when we moved in. It took my husband over an hour to scrub it all off with a wire scrubber! We quickly found out that if you don’t scrub the toilets EVERY DAY it comes back fast! After a few weekends away and coming back to nasty toilets all over again, we tried several different ways to clean it. Even tried a regular pumis stone, but didn’t work nearly as well. The place we live at now had the toilets prestine when we moved in, but after being away for over a week, they became disgusting! I was dreading having to clean them for when we host Christmas this year. But now I’m actually excited! And I don’t get excited about cleaning lol! Will definitely be buying this over and over!!!” – Ben Rumson
11. This three-layered window vent/blinds cleaning tool that’s purpose-made to reduce your dusting time by, like, 99%
Promising Review: “Love this blind duster and can’t believe it comes with 5 sleeves. I am going to give as gifts – great invention. Saw it in Real Simple magazine and wish I’d known about it sooner. Works so well and makes blind cleaning quicker and easier – and then you toss sleeves in the wash. I love this duster! I used it on ceiling fans, chair legs and chair spindles, picture frames and will no doubt find more uses for this. Sleeves go on and off duster easily. Highly recommend!!!” – Dennis
12. This “Angry Mama” that helps you get rid of tough grease stains in the microwave. Simply fill it with water and vinegar, place it in your microwave, run it for 5 minutes and viola!!
We’ll be honest, we made some angry mamas in our “experimental microwave food” days. Sorry, ma!
Promising Review: “I finally put this to the test. Opened my microwave to discover for the last week my kids have baked on cheese and who knows what else. This usually would of took me 30 mins to clean. I decided to try the angry moma. I was skeptic. It actually worked!!! I just wiped it down and was done in less than 10 min! 7 of that was the time it took to activate the product! LOVE this little contraption!” – Becky Orona
13. About to scrub the bath? Don’t forget these soap scum removers – they quickly wipe up stains that other solutions could NEVER handle.
Promising Review: “I have glass panels on 3 sides of my shower and between the hard water, soap scum and epsom salt residue, it’s always a huge chore to keep the glass clean and streak free. To use most commercial spray on products, I have to be inside the shower and breath in all that nasty chemicals. Well this really is magic. The pad is a squeegee material, wet it and just press with medium firmness on the glass to wipe it ALL clean. No hard scrubbing and no aerial chemicals. Really amazing product!! One pad is good for the entire shower, tile, sink and vanity. Love it!!!” – C. Cheng
14. This light-weight vacuum cleaner that helps you quickly spot-clean or reach high places. WARNING: It may turn you into a vacuuming addict.
Promising Review: “Seriously, this vacuum is the best! Getting a 32 year old guy to be overly excited about vacuuming is a true testament to product marketing and ingenuity. I ran out of things to vacuum at my place so I contemplated asking my neighbors if I could vacuum theirs so I had an excuse to keep using it. Worth the money.” – Mike Z
15. The only steam cleaner you’ll ever need – it will save you COUNTLESS amounts on cleaning costs. Features two modes: quick clean and deep clean, so you can use it for ANY task!
It’s so easy to use, too – a smart investment, especially if you have kids or pets!
Promising Review: “Just wow!!! This is by far the best steam cleaner that I have ever owned! This thing is powerful! It removed EVERY SINGLE STAIN on my carpet in my apartment, where I have lived for three years with my dog and cat. My carpet has never felt cleaner underneath my feet, not even back when I first moved in! It was very simple to put together. First I put it on “rinse” and got the area nice and wet. Then, I put it on the “wash” mode, and watched this thing suck up black water from my carpet. I’ve only used it once, so I’m not sure a lot the durability yet. But so far, I’m blown away” – Ashley Wright
