How we picked the best Amazon cleaning gadgets

To compile a list of the best Amazon cleaning gadgets, we chose items with a rating of at least four stars, and whose reviews mention durability and ease of use as reasons shoppers love them. Some of our picks also come recommended by Jennifer Rodriguez, chief hygiene officer at cleaning services company ProHousekeepers, and Michelle Spitzer, owner of MaidPro Naples,  a professional home-cleaning service in Naples, Florida. 

Best Amazon cleaning gadgets to shop

Below is a variety of products, including many budget-friendly options, for anyone who hates to clean — or doesn’t have the time or patience to tackle messy chores. All of these gadgets are highly rated and available on Amazon right now, or come recommended by experts or NBC Select staff.

ColorCoral Cleaning Gel 

4.1-star average rating from 54,764 reviews on Amazon

This cleaning gel from ColorCoral comes recommended by Rodriguez, who likes that it’s long-lasting and doesn’t have to be thrown out. “It’s reusable and non-toxic, making it a safe and eco-friendly cleaning solution,” she says. The gel is like a magnet for any and every type of debris, especially any crumbs hiding in difficult-to-reach places. Similar to the Pulidiki Cleaning Gel, this version uses adhesion to pick up small particles of garbage in places like crevices and pockets in your car, purse, backpack and kitchen, as well as electronic devices like keyboard and video game controllers.

Mabogu  Electric Spin Scrubber

4.5-star average rating from 1,140  reviews on Amazon

The Mabogu spin brush is ideal for cleaning surfaces often covered with residual water. The device comes recommended by Rodriguez, who likes that it’s great for reaching elevated areas that are difficult to clean. “This is perfect for the bathroom, especially if you have a standing shower,” she says. The cordless scrubber comes with several attachments, including brushes for cleaning grout and sponges. To recharge the device, plug it in for a few hours to get over two hours of cleaning time, according to the brand.

Heoath Under Appliance Microfiber Duster

4.4-star average rating from 2,036 reviews on Amazon

Some areas of the home are easier to clean than others, and some spots we simply forget to clean, such as under furniture or large appliances. This under-appliance microfiber duster comes recommended by Rodriguez, who says it’s the perfect size for cleaning these spaces. “Its slim and long handle make it easy to reach those tight spaces underneath appliances and furniture,” she says. You can use the device to clean under couches, ovens, refrigerators and even between appliances that are close together.

Dincken Crevice Cleaning Brush (4-pack)

4.6-star average rating from 427 reviews on Amazon

Similar to the under-appliance duster, this scrub brush helps get a more thorough clean in extremely small spaces and crevices. “Its ergonomic design allows you to effectively scrub away dirt and grime from the hard to reach gaps without straining your hands,” says Rodriguez. The item is ideal for areas like windowsills, grout and the gasket on your fridge door. 

The Pink Stuff Miracle Cleaning Paste

4.4-star average rating from 211,067 reviews on Amazon

Don’t let the bright packaging distract you from the cleaning paste inside. It’s tough on grease and dirt, and many reviewers say the paste is easier to spread than other traditional liquid cleaners. NBC Select editorial director Lauren Swanson has used the Pink Stuff cleaning paste in her bathroom and kitchen for years. 

Bissell SteamShot Steam Cleaner

4.2-star average rating from 47,495 reviews on Amazon

The Bissell SteamShot uses high-pressure steam to help you get a satisfying deep clean on multiple types of surfaces. The nozzle heads are interchangeable, meaning you can swap them out depending on what you’re cleaning. The NBC Select staff has used (and loved) the Bissell SteamShot to clean their showers, sinks, kitchen stoves and more.

Scrub Mommy Scrubber and Sponge

4.8-star average rating from 28, 496 reviews on Amazon

It might sound silly, but we’ve spent several meetings opining about our love for Scrub Daddy. As much as we love the original Scrub Daddy, we could wax poetic about the Scrub Mommy multi-surface cleaning sponge too. It’s dual-sided — one being a sponge and the other a dish scrubber. When you soak it in warm water, the sponge becomes soft and when soaked in cold water, it firms up.

Topist Angry Mama Microwave Cleaner

4.3-star average rating from 8,714 reviews on Amazon

This fun, eco-friendly tool lets you clean your microwave without scrubbing. Just remove the Mama’s hair and fill her head with vinegar and water before reattaching. Then microwave her for seven minutes and let the steam from Mama’s head rise and do its thing. The steam softens any messes and stains, and once Mama cools down, you can use the leftover liquid inside her to wipe the microwave clean, according to the brand. You can even add a squeeze of lemon juice for a clean citrus smell, according to Topist. Angry Mama is dishwasher-safe and made with heat-resistant nontoxic materials. Plus, it comes in four colors: purple, green, blue and yellow.

Fridge Ninja Charcoal Fridge Deodorizer (2-pack)

4.3-star average rating from 7,882 reviews on Amazon

If your fridge has an odor that never seems to go away, consider this reusable deodorizer from Fringe Ninja. Besides prolonging the freshness of your food, it also comes with a fridge thermometer to help you gauge if the environment is too warm or cold, according to the brand. Reviewers say they like how the charcoal deodorizer works fast and doesn’t take up too much space.

Bounce Pet Hair and Lint Guard Mega Dryer Sheets

4.7-star average rating from 18,105 reviews on Amazon

Cleaning up after pets that shed a lot can be challenging. These dryer sheets not only help remove stuck-on pet hair, but they also do the work of a typical dryer sheet by softening the texture of your clothes and leaving them with a fresh scent. Plus, one of these dryer sheets is about the size of a typical one, so you don’t have to use as many sheets each time you do laundry.

Hiware Window Blind Duster

4.1-star average rating from 18,394 reviews on Amazon

This duster brush helps turn dirty blinds clean. It comes with five machine-washable microfiber cloths that slip over its three arms so you can dust several blades at once, according to the brand. It’s designed to clean vents and air conditioners too.

Hanmir Mop Slippers

4.2-star average rating from 1,402 reviews on Amazon

These one-size-fits-all unisex mop slippers fit over bare feet or shoes to help you clean floors — leaving your hands free to do other things. As you walk around, these slippers, which are a mix of soft chenille and microsoft fibers, pick up dust, dirt and pet hair without damaging the surface of your floor. You get five pairs in a pack in various colors including orange, blue, pink, green and purple. You can also fasten them to your mop head and throw them in your washing machine once you’re done, according to the brand.

Pulidiki Cleaning Gel

4.1-star average rating from 83,479 reviews on Amazon

This eco-friendly cleaning gel is designed to clean crevices and hard-to-reach places like the corners of drawers, vents, keyholes, TV remotes, dashboards and consoles. Just press the cleaning gel into any little cracks, press and peel off — the gel lifts the dust away. It has a lavender fragrance and you can reuse it. After use, store it in its sealed box in a cool, dry place. 

Holikme 4-Pack Drill Brush Power Scrubber

4.4-star average rating from 74,369 reviews on Amazon

These brushes attach to almost any cordless drill to help you get stubborn cleaning jobs done fast, according to the brand. The brushes are commercial grade and come in various sizes to clean grout, floors, tubs, showers, tile, and bathroom and kitchen surfaces. The kit also comes with an extender attachment to help clean tight spaces and hard-to-reach areas such as stove grates, drip pans and your car’s crevices. The brand also offers 20- and 30-piece brush kits, which include scouring pads, scrub sponges and white wool pads to clean even more areas of your home.

Joymoop Mop and Bucket with Wringer

4.3-star average rating from 23,537 reviews on Amazon

Spitzer says you should mop tile and hardwood weekly. This all-in-one mop-and-bucket system will save you time and effort when washing floors, baseboards, showers, walls and windows thanks to its 360 degree rotation that lets you get into tight spaces, according to the brand. The bucket has two chambers — one that dampens your mop and scrapes away any leftover hair or dirt; the other chamber squeezes your mop head dry. The mop has an adjustable stainless-steel handle that extends to 50 inches and machine washable microfiber pads you can reuse. This cleaning system comes with a bucket, four mop handle rods, one mop head with a pad, two extra pads and an instruction manual. You can also store everything inside the bucket when not in use, according to Joymoop. 

Goodbye Detergent All-Purpose Spaghetti Scrub

4.7-star average rating from 769 reviews on Amazon

This all-purpose cleaning scrubber is a handy feel-good tool. It comes in a two-pack and unravels like strands of spaghetti. These strands are made of peach pits, which reduce or eliminate the need for soap, as detailed on the brand’s website. The spaghetti scrub is great for cleaning cast iron, dishes, cookware, wood, plastic, glass, metal and high-quality nonstick pans, according to Goodbye Detergent. You can wash the scrubs on the top rack of a dishwasher or in the microwave for 10 seconds to disinfect.

Ordora Pet Hair Remover

4.4-star average rating from 19,896 reviews on Amazon

If you have pets who frequently shed, keeping up with all the excess hair can be a nightmare. This Ordora tool acts like a reusable lint brush. To use it, drag the roller over your desired area and it’ll remove hard-to-reach hair, dust and lint in one swipe, according to the brand. To empty the built-up hair, just open the lid and remove the fur. 

Sauberkugel Clean Ball

4.5-star average rating from 4,970 reviews on Amazon

Smaller than a golf ball, the Sauberkugel collects crumbs, sand and dirt that pool at the bottom of your bags. It has an outer shell with holes that allows debris in as it rolls around, while an inner sticky ball captures the junk particles and holds them in place. It’s made of 100% recyclable materials and you can use it over and over again — just open the outer shell, rinse off the inner ball with water and snap it together.

Odistar Desktop Vacuum Cleaner

4.3-star average rating from 16,043 reviews on Amazon

This mini desktop vacuum cleaner suctions up crumbs, seeds and dust from hard-to-reach places like a computer keyboard. Despite it being a vacuum, it’s not loud, says NBC Select commerce editor Lindsay Schneider. Its batteries last about 2.5 hours, and it has a 360-degree rotatable design so you can wheel it around in all directions, according to the brand. There is an attached brush under the vacuum to swipe away stubborn crumbs. To remove waste, pull out the bottom cover and empty it over a trash can. It’s made of plastic acrylic and comes in a rechargeable version.

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser

4.8-star average rating from 198 reviews on Amazon

This list wouldn’t be complete without Mr. Clean’s Magic Eraser, which Spitzer calls “a must for every household.” The Magic Eraser can tackle a wide variety of seemingly impossible-to-clean messes including removing wall marks and silver tarnish — all with just water, according to the brand. 

Beautural Fabric Shaver and Lint Remover

4.4-star average rating from 31,493 reviews on Amazon

When it comes to laundry, washing and drying is only part of the task. It’s important to also make sure your clothes are free of any lint or piling. This fabric shaver from Beautural is a good solution for apparel that could use some sprucing up. The device removes lint, dust and fuzz from upholstery, blankets, sweaters and jerseys, according to the brand. 

BoxLegend v3 Version Shirt Folding Board

4.6-star average rating from 35,147 reviews on Amazon

Another laundry essential, this folding board is a great way to make putting away clothes quicker and easier. You can place the board on a flat surface and fold t-shirts and pants with almost zero effort.

O-Cedar Microfiber Spin Mop and Bucket

4.6-star average rating from 177,858 reviews on Amazon

A reliable spin mop and bucket are a must for regularly cleaning around the home. This popular item is equipped with  a built-in mechanism for wringing out excess water from the microfiber mop head that you operate with your foot. Plus, the mop head itself is machine washable and reusable, but you can also replace it every so often, according to the brand. Use the device on hardwood floors, laminate and tile.

How often should you deep clean your home?

“You should thoroughly clean your kitchen and bathrooms, dust all the surfaces in your home and vacuum and clean all hardwood once a week,” says Spitzer. Additionally, you should keep in mind commonly forgotten areas, such as ceiling fans, baseboards, air vents and window tracks, according to Rodriguez. Sprays such as Method all-purpose cleaner, Mrs. Meyer’s multi-surface everyday cleaner and Seventh Generation disinfecting multi-surface cleaner are all good options for cleaning more common surfaces such as in the kitchen or bathroom, says Rodriguez.
