When it comes to cleaning supplies to keep your home germ-free, we’re betting you’ve tried lots of brands since 2020 began.

While at one point, barely any household goods were in stock on shelves due to the global pandemic, but thankfully we’re back to a semi-normal world where you can find household cleaners and other essentials again.

And because of Product of the Year awards, shopping for cleaning supplies is easier than ever. No longer do you have to search when it comes to multi-purpose cleaners, car products, laundry supplies and vacuums.

As the largest consumer-voted award for product innovation, Product of the Year highlights the best of the best for shoppers each year. This year, 40,000 consumers (yes, people just like you) voted on their favorite products across 41 categories.

With the global research company Kantar, the group is able to sample thousands of American shoppers to evaluate items based on “product appeal, satisfaction, advocacy, purchase interest, uniqueness, relevance and excitement,” according to the organization’s FAQ page.

While food items, beauty essentials and other products were included in this year’s list of winners, we’ve rounded up the cleaning supplies that took home the 2020 Product of the Year award since we’ve all been doing lots of sanitizing and de-germing this year.

Below, you’ll find the full list of the 10 Product of the Year cleaning supply choices:
