IScrubbing away dirt and grime is not only time-consuming, it’s also back-breaking work. I’m convinced it’s where the phrase “put your back into it” came from. Thankfully, with the Drill Brush Power Scrubber, this is a think of the past. The concept is simple: combine the power of a drill with the efficiency of a scrub brush for a powerful cleaning tool. The result is amazing!
Coming with three power scrub brushes, the Drill Brush is designed for use with most cordless drills. The Drill is NOT included. From the bathroom, to the kitchen, to the shower, these brushes will cut your cleaning and scrubbing time in half or more compared to the rigorous effort involved in hand scrubbing.

Most travel mugs and water bottles are not dishwasher safe. Which means you are the dishwasher. But they’re notoriously difficult to clean and even after our best cleaning efforts, there’s still that annoying, lingering smell.
Well, say hello to Bottle Bright, the bottle cleaning tablets. Simply fill your bottle with warm water and drop in one Bottle Bright tablet. Let it sit for about 15-30 minutes while the fizzy bubbles work their magic. When it’s done, empty it out, rinse it, and your bottle is ready to use again!
Better still, this product is all natural, safe, non-toxic, biodegradable, and chlorine free. And at just $8 for 12 tablets, you need to add these fizzy buddies to your cleaning tools.
If you have a house with a lot of windows or a house with really tall windows, you’re going to love this next cleaning tool on our list. The aptly named Gladwell Gecko Automated window cleaner is one of the coolest window cleaning tools because it climbs and crawls across your windows (like a gecko), leaving clean, streak-free surfaces in its wake.
It looks like magic, but it’s just smart technology. This app-controlled device uses suction cups and microfiber cloth to do its job. Did we mention how smart this thing is? Using algorithms based learning patterns to navigate its way across your window, you won’t have to worry about it getting stuck in corners.
Simply spray the microfiber cloth with your favorite window cleaner and let the Gladwell Gecko do the rest for you. It’s a bit pricy at $199.95 but seeing as it could replace all your other window cleaning tools, the price seems worth it.
Mopping is at the top of the list of things most people dread doing. Now, thanks to the iRobot Braava mopping robot, you don’t have to worry about it. This 10-pound little guy might not look like it can do much, but when it comes to floor mops, Braava is a beast.
Designed to clean tile and hardwood floors, Braava intelligently removes dirt and stains with three different cleaning modes: dry sweeping, damp sweeping, and wet mopping. And because of its compact size, it can get into hard to reach places including under and around toilets, into corners, and below cabinets—areas most floor mops have trouble reaching. You can also set boundaries within your house or apartment with the virtual wall mode, so Braava doesn’t go on carpet or other areas.
This little guy is great for apartment and small homes, but if you have a larger space, consider upgrading to the Braava Jet 380t for a more robust clean. The next time you’re shopping for floor mops, consider one that will literally clean your house while you sleep.
There’s nothing more exciting then bringing home a new puppy, but potty training your furry friend can be a nightmare. Thankfully, there’s a savvy solution called the BrilliantPad. This self-cleaning pet potty pad, wraps, seals, and stows away waste (even poop) completely hands-free, locking away odors making your home more hygienic.
Better still, BrilliantPad comes with an adjustable timer that allows you to set it to automatically wrap and seal dirty pads 1, 2 or 3 times a day, depending on what works for your furry family. If there’s a big mess that needs to be changed right away, change the pad on demand and anytime at the touch of a button.
Brilliant pad is around $200 and is designed good for small dogs under 25 pounds.
