15 Clever Amazon Gadgets, So You Can Spring Clean Without Getting Your Hands Dirty
Cleaning. We all have to do it, but I know I'm never thrilled about the prospect. However, in all the time I've spent hunting down gadgets on Amazon, I've managed to round up quite a collection of unique tools that help get that job done a little easier. Every single one here keeps hands relatively clean and dry while you work, and I bet a couple solve a problem — or at least discover dust — where you'd least expect it (like they did for me).
You don't just need to take my word for it, as all 15 products have at least an average four-star rating from other Amazon shoppers, and there are thousands of total reviews among them. Check out the list ahead, and see which one can be the new hero for your own upcoming spring-cleaning plans.
Homitt Electric Spin Scrubber Power Brush With 3 Replaceable Brush Heads
If you hate dried-out hands that smell like cleanser, this lightweight Homitt Electric Spin Scrubber Power Brush With 3 Replaceable Brush Heads ($50) is a true lifesaver (and that comes from someone who owns one herself). It makes scrubbing the tub, tile walls, counters, and other areas of my home so easy and keeps hands totally dry in the process. I love the simple on-off switch (versus a ton of arm motion with an actual sponge) and that it comes with three different brush shapes to tackle different tough spots.
Homitt Electric Spin Scrubber Power Brush With Adjustable Extension Arm and 3 Brush Heads
For an upgrade on the model I have, I'm eying this Homitt Electric Spin Scrubber Power Brush With Adjustable Extension Arm and 3 Brush Heads ($70) next. Because it extends longer (up to 42 inches), it would be easier to reach the upper walls of my shower without stretching my arms and to clean the floor without even bending down. Win-win.
Scotch-Brite Non-Scratch Bathroom Scrubber With Reusable Handle
If cleaning is still your form of cardio and you want to use some actual arm power, the Scotch-Brite Non-Scratch Bathroom Scrubber With Reusable Handle ($8) is a cheaper option to a power brush. This still washes away grime while keeping hands clean . . . so are you ready to say "bye" to your regular sponge (since it's refillable, too)?
ColorCoral Cleaning Dust Remover Putty Gel For Vents, Keyboard, A/C, and More
Trust me, you may think your keyboard or remote control is clean, but just one swipe of this ColorCoral Cleaning Dust Remover Putty Gel ($7-$8) will likely prove otherwise. It also works amazingly well on my a/c vent . . . and you just may find yourself testing it on other potentially dusty items, too, just to see the results.
FURemover Pet Hair Removal Broom With 3-5' Telescoping Handle and Lint Brush/ Squeegee Combo
My dog doesn't shed that much, but this FURemover Pet Hair Removal Broom With 3-5' Telescoping Handle and Lint Brush/ Squeegee Combo ($20) definitely picks up any hair that falls off either of us. However, my favorite part is the squeegee side of the broom that can get at dust and dirt, too, and that it can be rinsed off (versus disposable mop pads). Since I do sometimes see evidence of Beau on clothing, the included smaller lint brush is a treat since it acts like a magnet and can be washed clean as well.
Connoisseurs 1050 Diamond Dazzle Stik
Once I discovered Connoisseurs Jewelry Wipes, I realized just how dirty my jewelry was (even though it didn't look it). I immediately went on a cleaning spree . . . but those cloths turn fingers black as they work (and it's hard to get that off, even with soap and water). That's where this Connoisseurs 1050 Diamond Dazzle Stik ($6, originally $7) comes in, as the pen's soft bristle brush with cleanser already inside can be used to polish gold and platinum jewelry — with or without diamonds and other stones — and your fingers stay clean in the process.
Microfiber Mop Slipper Shoes For Floor Cleaning (5 Pairs, Washable/Reusable)
While it's not necessarily something you'd want to use to clean your whole home, why not make an impromptu solo dance party do double duty as a cleaning session with these Microfiber Mop Slipper Shoes For Floor Cleaning (5 Pairs, Washable/Reusable) ($15)?
Microfiber Cleaning/Dusting Glove (1 Pair, Washable/Reusable)
Or instead of cleaning your dust-collecting display items with a towel or brush, slip on a Microfiber Cleaning/Dusting Glove (1 Pair, Washable/Reusable) ($10), and you can admire and clean them at the same exact time.
SpotBot Pet Hands-Free Spot and Stain Cleaner With Deep Reach Technology
With a press of a button, the SpotBot Pet Hands-Free Spot and Stain Cleaner With Deep Reach Technology ($180) cleans both new and set-in stains. It may come with a bottle of Bissell Pet Stain Oxy Boost Formula, but it also easily handles other oopsies (red wine, I'm looking at you), all while you sit back and pour yourself another glass.
Bottle Bright All-Natural, Biodegradable, Chlorine and Odor-Free Water Bottle Cleaning Tablets Pack
Even though I'm not going to the gym these days, I still love to keep a reusable metal bottle by my bed so I can have easy access to cold water in the middle of the night. And if you've ever used one of these, you know they can get a bit funky (and can be tough to clean without leaving soapy residue). I absolutely love these Bottle Bright All-Natural, Biodegradable, Chlorine and Odor-Free Water Bottle Cleaning Tablets (12 ct.) ($8) because they just go right in the bottle and work their magic overnight, then you rinse the bottle clean in the morning. No brush needed, and, more importantly, no icky smell or taste afterward either.
Rubbermaid Power Scrubber With All-Purpose Grout Head
This little Rubbermaid Power Scrubber With All-Purpose Grout Head ($20, originally $30) is perfect for tiny, hard-to-reach areas, especially when targeting grout, crevices, and drains. If you've ever scrubbed any area of your home with an actual toothbrush (including metal pots, pans, or even drawer handles), you'll definitely want to amp up that power with one of these instead.
Housmile Mattress Vacuum Cleaner
If you've got a dust allergy, a dust-mite allergy, and just plain allergies (or even suspect you do), this Housmile Mattress Vacuum Cleaner ($130) is a miracle worker. Just run it over your mattress, couch, pillows, and any other soft surface, and you'll truly be amazed (and possibly disgusted) by what its filter picks up.
Mr. Siga Soap-Dispensing Dish Brush With Holder
Yes, you'll have to hold the dish with one hand, but this Mr. Siga Soap-Dispensing Dish Brush With Holder ($13) is way easier than scrubbing with a sponge, as the soap comes out with the touch of a button and the brush has a scraper bit to get at stuck-on food without using your nails.
Anzoee Reusable Silicone Scrubbing Gloves For Kitchen, Bathroom, Car, and More (1 Pair)
Using protective gloves to wash dishes is one way to keep hands clean and wrinkle-free, but why not skip a step and opt for these textured Anzoee Reusable Silicone Scrubbing Gloves For Kitchen, Bathroom, Car, and More (1 Pair) ($8) to clean without a sponge (or pair with that dish-dispensing brush for double scrubbing, too)?
Window/Sliding Door Track Cleaning Duster, Brush, and Sweeper 5-Piece Set
If you have shutters or blinds in your home, you need this Window/Sliding Door Track Cleaning Duster, Brush, and Sweeper 5-Piece Set ($12). The tools in this set go far beyond just cleaning there, like the wand that gets at hidden dirt in window tracks or the brush and tiny attached dustpan for cleaning debris off your desk in a pinch.
