Whenever we're shopping for "the best" of any given product, we instinctively head to Amazon and scroll down to the customer reviews section in search of some much-needed insight. We don't know about you, but before we click "add to cart," we want to hear from the people who have actually tried and tested the product to determine whether or not it's actually worth buying—whether it's a blender, an Instant Pot, or even a silk pillowcase. In a consumer culture driven by instant gratification, there's nothing worse than waiting two whole days for a product to be delivered only to find out it doesn't really work.
So we turned to the online retail giant when stocking our shelves in preparation for spring cleaning. According to enthusiastic reviewers, these are the best cleaning products on Amazon, including a $14 natural, all-purpose cleaner that's so good it's garnered a cult following.
Amagabeli Cast Iron Cleaner Chainmail Scrubber
The Details: Amagabeli Cast Iron Cleaner Chainmail Scrubber ($14)
The Stats: 4.7 stars, 1358 reviews
The Promising Review: "I have a cast iron grill pan that I love to use but hate to clean, however, thanks to this product that is all changing! Before, I would use a [rigid] scraper, and then a gentle brush, but it would never get all the gunk out and required a lot of elbow work/time. Now, I just fill the pan with water, bring to a boil for a couple minutes, then let it cool. I'll use the scraper to get the big chunks out and then use this to scrub the tight-to-reach and rounded areas—and wow, what a difference!
It takes so much less time and gets so much cleaner that I'm sad I didn't get this earlier!" — Allison
VibraWipe Microfiber Cleaning Cloths
The Details: VibraWipe Microfiber Cleaning Cloths ($17)
The Stats: 4.8 stars, 2211 reviews
The Promising Review: "If I could give [this product] 10 stars I would! I didn't know what I was missing until I tried this brand! There is no lint left behind, something that drove me crazy with paper towels and other cleaning clothes. I even wipe the mirrors in the house with them, and they do not streak or leave residue." — Julia Nichols
OXO Good Grips Bottle Brush
The Details: OXO Good Grips Bottle Brush ($5)
The Stats: 4.5 stars, 5130 reviews
The Promising Review: "I ordered this specifically for cleaning my 17 oz S'well bottle, and it works perfectly. The bristles are soft, flexible and it suds up nicely using dish soap. The rubber grip and handle size are ergonomically just right for me. It has also worked well on all but my narrowest-topped water bottles. This was an easy winner for me, and I would recommend." — DOUG G
Affresh Washer Machine Cleaner
The Details: Affresh Washer Machine Cleaner, 6-Tablets ($12)
The Stats: 4.4 stars, 4179 reviews
The Promising Review: "Affresh has literally changed my life! I followed the directions on the package (my [washer's] stink was so bad that I had to use three doses to get rid of it) and the odor was gone—COMPLETELY! This is an awesome product! Honestly, if I hadn't found Affresh, I probably would've traded in my washer for a new one. I'm so thankful for this product!" — Megan Cabral
Scrub Daddy FlexTexture Scrubber
The Details: Scrub Daddy FlexTexture Scrubber ($15)
The Stats: 4.5 stars, 2494 reviews
The Promising Review: "I was skeptical of Scrub Daddy at first. A friend gave me one and said, 'You've got to try it.' I didn't understand how something so course, hard and inflexible could be used to clean dishes—until I actually tried it. Once it's put under warm or hot water, it softens up and is perfect for cleaning dishes, pots, pans, and utensils. I've used Scrub Daddy on a variety of things. I love how it works so I ordered more. I'm impressed!" — R
O-Cedar EasyWring Microfiber Spin Mop
The Details: O-Cedar EasyWring Microfiber Spin Mop ($30)
The Stats: 4.3 stars, 5838 reviews
The Promising Review: "Where has this product been all my life! I have tile in my kitchen, hall and both bathrooms. Some sadist thought white grout was a good choice and sadly my grout has not been even close to white for some time. First, I vacuumed my tile floors and then sprayed the cleaner lightly on the grout. I let it sit for 30 min and then mopped with hot, clear water. Oh, my—looks like a new floor!" — JanMBSC
Puracy Natural Multi-Surface Cleaner
The Details: Puracy Natural Multi-Surface Cleaner ($14)
The Stats: 4.5 stars, 1863 reviews
The Promising Review: "This stuff is excellent. I just used it to clean my entire house and it performed very well on everything from tile, glass, stainless steel, chrome, wood, laminate, computer monitors, TVs, metal, plastic, baseboards, walls—you name it, it cleaned it. It has a pleasant smell that's mild and disappears within minutes. For the size/amount you get, it's a great price for an all-natural product." — Katelyn
