With the right tools, spring cleaning is a cinch. Fun, even!

Admittedly, in the past I've been a procrastinator when it comes to real cleaning, but I've found some handy-dandy helpers that make easy work of it. The picks below let you dance while you clean (foot mops), shrink your mess (vacuum storage bags that actually work) and create your own potions (amber spray bottles).

Quick overview

I've included lots of earth-friendly options here and a slew of fan faves. You'll save big bucks, too, as most of them are on sale at Amazon.

So throw open those windows, crank up the music and watch that dirt and mess disappear.


Hiware Window Blind Cleaner Duster Brush with 5 Microfiber Sleeves

$8$13Save $5
Simply spray some cleaner onto the reusable microfiber cloth and swipe to clean two blind slats at once. It includes five machine-washable sleeves that you can switch out as you go.
$8 at Amazon

Actually...before you open the windows, take a sec to inspect those blinds. If they're not looking their best, check this popular blind-cleaning gizmo. It's been pretty darn helpful in my home. One convert, who called it the "greatest invention," said, "Where has this blind cleaner been for the past 50 years????" While a grateful professional housekeeper raved: "Finally! A product that works on all types of blinds!...The microfiber is the key to getting all the dust, and the design of the product makes it super easy! PLUS this tool can be used on different types of blinds because it is flexible! I have used it on wooden shutters, plastic vertical patio door blinds, and horizontal metal mini blinds...This product deserves 10 stars!"

Sally's Organics

Sally's Organics Empty Amber Glass Spray Bottles, 2 Pack

$20$25Save $5
This $20 deal includes two spray bottles, two caps and four labels. But you'll think up a half dozen uses for these bottles — so if a two-pack won't do, nab the six pack instead.
$20 at Amazon

Now that you've whipped your blinds into shape, how about those windows? To get them squeaky clean, here's an easy, cheap hack. I use 16 oz refillable amber bottles for my DIY concoctions. These are the perfect size, they've got UV protection so your creations won't turn on you, and they won't hang on to old scents if you decide to switch it up. No wonder they have 25,000 five-star ratings (and counting)!

"Just what I wanted!" writes a fan. "The sprayer works very well with two spray options, stream and mist, and two off positions for ease of use. The straw is long and slightly curved so it more than reaches the bottom to get every last drop of my homemade cleaners. I also love the caps for the bottles, which offer a nice tight fit for no-leak transport and storage!"


TubShroom Tub Hair Catcher Drain Protector

$13$20Save $7
The holes in the TubShroom allow it to drain even when hair is caught, so the tub doesn't fill up on you during a shower.
$13 at Amazon

I shed! So do my husband, my kid and my dog. The Tub Shroom drain hair catcher makes bathroom cleaning easier by catching hair before it clogs the drains. This thing has nearly 83,000 perfect ratings, and it's now 35% off! One five-star reviewer raved: Best hair trap I've ever used, and I've used virtually every style.... The genius is that the hair and scum get wrapped around the tubular part that sits — invisibly — down inside the drain.... I love that it's soft and doesn't hurt toes if stepped on or kicked."


Spacesaver Vacuum Storage Bags Variety 6 Pack

$15$23Save $8
This variety pack includes two medium, two large and two jumbo size bags for just $15.
$15 at Amazon

After the final frost, I love squeezing down our down comforters, blankets, sweaters, puffy coats and the like in SpaceSaver vacuum storage bags. This simple act adds so much space! "I have been doing some spring cleaning and these bags are awesome!" shared a happy user. "All of my winter clothes are in these bags which leaves a lot of room in my closet. I will use the medium bags for traveling, thanks to the hand pump!"


eufy by Anker BoostIQ RoboVac 11S (Slim)

$140$230Save $90
This little robot pal is smart enough to know where not to go (down the steps), and it returns to its charger on command (via app or remote).
$140 at Amazon

When I need motivation, it helps to have my eager sidekick: the Eufy RoboVac 11S. It's their "slim" model, which means it gets under every chair and into every corner, while also collecting quite a lot of dirt and pet hair in its large 0.6 liter dustbin without asking me to empty it too often. The slim Eufy is a bestseller on Amazon and it's currently on sale — so now's your chance to see what all the fuss is about! One of the 35,000-plus five-star fans adds: "Best decision we ever made buying this...I've been amazed at how well it figures out how to get out of the jams it gets itself into."


M-jump 4 Pairs Duster Mop Slippers Cover

$10$12Save $2
The microfiber slip-ons fit over shoes or on bare feet and work as a mop head too. When you're finished, just toss them in the wash.
$10 at Amazon

I love to dance. Anything that lets me moonwalk while mopping up paw prints is a must-have. This multicolor four-pair pack of cute, reusable mop slippers gets the whole fam cleaning. (My daughter actually requested these and called dibs on the purple.) A floored five-star user writes: "You won't believe how dirty your clean floors are!"

ChomChom Roller

ChomChom Pet Hair Remover

Save $7 with coupon
The microfiber brush attacks pet hair like nothing I've seen before. After it's worked its magic, just click open the waste compartment to dump it out.
$25 at Amazon

Pet hair and lint isn't just on the floor, though. We have two cats and a giant puppy, so it collects on the upholstery, the bedding and our clothes. But now I have a real solution. I finally let go of my incredibly wasteful tape roller in favor of the remarkable, reusable ChomChom. I highly recommend it, and so do nearly 104,000 five-star fans on Amazon!

"ChomChom, you da real MVP," writes a fan. "[In two hours] I've cleaned everything. The couch, the blinds, the cat tree pad, the chair, I'm obsessed. I feel like this thing should win an award for being so awesome. I feel like it should be in raffle baskets and giveaways and silent auctions for every event that highlights 'things cat people need.' It's better than those sticky rollers, it's better than the 1 directional velvet wand thing that I always use the wrong way and make a mess, it's the best...."


Skoy Non-Scratching Resuable Kitchen Scrub

No need to limit it to the kitchen — shoppers use these on flooring, cars and more.
$7 at Amazon

Time to tackle the kitchen! When it comes to scrubbers, I like a workhorse tool that's sustainable too. This adorable, reusable 6-by-5-inch Skoy Scrub (made from remnants from the toweling industry!) outlasts other scrubbers, and it's safe for all sorts of kitchen items — from nonstick pans and cast iron to cooktops and tiles! It's dishwasher-safe too.

"Appreciating this little scrubber much more than I thought I would," wrote a fan. "It's got the textile advantages of a scrub-brush/sponge with the ability to use it like a scraper. It can more quickly clean a baking pan or sheet than use of the scraper alone, and it seems impervious to grime. It can reach corners better than a brush, and can be used inside of bottles, glasses, etc. It has not scratched any of the surfaces I have used it on so far (enamel, glass, porcelain, nonstick, stainless).... It has not retained smells or odors, unlike a sponge."


YouCopia StoraLid Food Container Lid Organizer

This handy organizer expands from 13.5 to 22.5 inches and is made of solid, BPA-free plastic.
$30 at Amazon

Once everything is wiped clean, you won't want to just toss a big mess of pot covers and random lids back into your cabinets. Gotta tidy it up, right? This expandable lid holder has made its way into my Amazon shopping cart and I'm more excited than I probably should be. But I'm not alone....

One of its 19,900-plus five-star reviewers said: "In under 15 minutes I took my nightmare lid drawer and turned it into a functional, convenient storage space. The dividers were simple to install and provided flexibility. Slowly but surely I am getting my tiny, chaotic kitchen under control, and this got me a huge leap closer."
