Must-Try Cleaning Hacks

Must-Have Cleaning Products You Didn’t Know You Needed From Amazon

There’s nothing worse than buying cleaning products that don’t deliver. So, I’ve curated a list of some new game-changing cleaning products I’ve tried recently that have revolutionized the way I tackle messes. From battling pet hair to keeping your herbs fresh, these Amazon finds are absolute game-changers.

1. Fur Removing Triangle:

This triangular marvel is a game-changer for pet owners dealing with incessant fur. Whether it’s your couch, carpet, or clothing, it effortlessly lifts and pulls out embedded hair, leaving surfaces remarkably clean. Its reusable, so a totally money-saver! (and environmentally friendly) I honestly didn’t think this was going to work, but it does! Our French Bulldog has that short, hard hair, and even the vacuum can’t always get it up from the carpet – but this thing does!

2. Duster Sponges:

Don’t let their unassuming appearance fool you—these sponges wield dust-busting powers. Their uniquely ridged surface effortlessly captures debris and dust particles. And, they’re incredibly easy to clean; just rinse and reuse, eliminating the need for disposable cleaning products. Whether it’s dry or slightly dampened, these sponges are efficient on various surfaces, making them versatile and practical for any cleaning task.

3. Desk Cleaning Gel:

The gel that gets into the tiniest nooks and crannies, removing dirt you didn’t even know existed. I tried it first on my keyboard, which was OK, but where it really blew my mind was the nooks and crannies of the car! This gel is a satisfying solution for those hard-to-reach areas where traditional cleaning tools fall short.

4. Katchy Fruit Fly Trap:

A miniature marvel that solves a common kitchen woe—the relentless presence of fruit flies (the worst, right?!) It emits a blue light that attracts those pesky insects,  then the tiny fan inside sucks them in and pulls them down to the sticky pad at the bottom. It’s a little gross to see all the flies at the end, but incredibly satisfying to witness how it clears your kitchen of these unwanted guests overnight. A must-have if you’re tired of fruit fly invasions disrupting your home.

6. Herb Saving Pod:

Another gadget I didn’t think would work – but it did! Say goodbye to wilted herbs!  It’s a simple yet effective solution with a reservoir at the base that holds water, preserving the herbs’ freshness. Whether it’s parsley, dill, or any other herb, this pod ensures they stay vibrant and flavorful, even after days in the refrigerator. I tested two things of herbs (one in the pod, one not) and it was amazing how much fresher the pod kept them!

7. Box Cutter:

While it might not be the first thing you associate with cleaning, this little tool is a clutter-buster because it’ll help you with all those boxes! Breaking down shipping boxes has never been easier or safer—it’s blunt blade ensures safety without compromising functionality. With a handy magnet for fridge storage, it’s a simple yet convenient addition to any household.

8. Touchless Vacuum:

Designed for quick cleanups, this vacuum is great for busy households. Once you’ve swept or wiped up a mess just push it up to the vacuum and it sucks it away – hands-free! Its motion-sensing or manual activation provides versatility for different needs. Perfect for tackling crumbs after meals or tidying up after kids or pets.

9. Blueland Multi-Surface Cleaner:

An eco-warrior’s dream, this cleaner revolutionizes the way we approach cleanliness. With its water-activated tablets, it eliminates the need for single-use plastic bottles. The tabs dissolve in water, creating an effective multipurpose cleaner, reducing waste, and offering a sustainable solution for everyday cleaning.

Each of these Amazon cleaning products addresses specific cleaning needs, making everyday tasks simpler and more efficient.
