If we’re being honest, spring cleaning doesn’t necessarily end in the spring — it’s more of a year-long commitment. And if you’re like me and find yourself cleaning when trying to blow off a little steam, it can benefit your mental health by helping reduce stress and anxiety.

So when it comes to finding reliable cleaning supplies for every room, my first step is to head to the reviews. There will always be those essentials you know already work for you, but if you’re testing out a new device to help solve a cleaning problem in your home, real-life reviews on Amazon can easily guide your decision.

While you could call the pros to finish your list of cleaning tasks through Amazon’s professional house cleaning service, we’ve rounded up some of the most popular cleaning supplies and gadgets on Amazon that have proven to be customer-favorites. And if you’re not yet an Amazon Prime member, be sure to sign up here.
