Yahoo shopping editors' spring cleaning must-haves

"I actually get excited at the thought of using this steam cleaner — and no, I’m not just saying that. While it works pretty much anywhere, I especially love it for areas that are annoying to keep clean like window tracks, my microwave and the grout between floor tiles. Although it only uses water, Bissell claims it eliminates 99.9% of germs and bacteria. That means, it’s a cleaner and sanitizer all in one. What’s better than that?!" Amanda Garrity, Gift Guides Editor

"This year, I'm all about making the spring cleaning experience as hands-off as possible. That's why these toilet-cleaning stamps have become my new best friend. I just stamp a bit of gel onto the interior of the bowl, and every time someone flushes, it foams up and helps keep buildup from accumulating between deep-cleanings. Now I don't have to scrub my toilet as much, and it has a pleasant, fresh scent, too! Plus, it's pretty fun to use." —Britt Ross, Deals Writer

"I watched a video on TikTok of a woman's floors getting mopped after only using a Swiffer for two years — and I was horrified. It was enough to turn this Swiffer stan onto getting a real mop, and I chose this one. It's still easy to use — it's cordless, has washable mop pads and washes my floors fast — but its rotating scrubbers give it a little more oomph. I use it with Method’s Squirt & Mop Wood Floor Cleaner to really make my floors sparkle." —Ellie Conley, Senior Commerce Editor

"The glass cooktop in our apartment was absolutely filthy when my partner and I moved in. After a lot of trial and error, this polish is the only one that actually got all the grime off. It comes with a scraper and several scrubbing pads and the combination really gets everything off — all the stains, burned food, old grease and whatever else accumulated on the surface. I clean the glass top every few days now just to keep it from getting gross again (and it’s kind of fun!) I’m convinced this helped save our security deposit!" —Izabella Zaydenberg, Deputy Editor

"I enjoy cleaning (most of the time), but I despise cleaning the shower. All that grout is such a pain to get to. After hearing so much about how awesome this scrubber is, I decided it was time to give it a try — and man, does this thing work. All I have to do is hold it in place and it does the majority of the work for me. The benefits don't stop there, though! Different cleaning heads mean I can use it for any job that requires above-average elbow grease, even cleaning the fresh coat of paint ... sorry, I mean pollen, off my car." —Patrick Hearn, Deals Writer

"I despise cleaning the bathroom. Mold, mildew and soap scum just gross me out more than anything. I hated looking at my gross shower, but also dreaded spending hours scrubbing all the nastiness off. I decided to try this mold remover gel. You apply it, let it sit for 5 to 8 hours, then wipe clean. I'm happy to report, it really works! The ickiest parts of my shower are now bright white thanks to this Amazon find." —Jeanine Edwards, Commerce Director

"This Amazon No. 1 bestseller is a savior for keeping rugs and upholsteries in tip-top shape. It's also incredibly easy to use, super compact and fairly lightweight. Check out my full Bissell Little Green Carper and Upholstery Cleaner review to learn — and see! — how I recently relied on it to rejuvenate one of my precious throw rugs." —Kristin Granero, Senior Commerce Writer

"Fabuloso is always going to be, well, a fabulous pick for cleaning up dirt and grime from a wide range of surfaces — my personal favorite use? Getting floors squeaky clean! It's incredibly affordable at under $5 a bottle, and since it's a 2x concentrated formula, a little goes a long way. Plus, that fresh lavender scent always reminds me just how clean everything is once I'm done." —Carrie McCabe, Senior Deals Writer

"Melamine sponges are the best-kept secret in cleaning, able to scrub spotless just about any surface without the need for a cleanser. The generics are exactly the same as the branded (Mr. Clean Magic Sponge) version, but much cheaper; for example, you can get a 50-pack (!) for around $17, versus $11 for a Mr. Clean 10-pack." —Rick Broida, Senior Technology Writer

"I leave a bunch of patio chairs and tables outside all winter (these things are heavy!), so come spring, everything needs a cleaning. (And yes, I know I should use outdoor furniture covers!) OxiClean powder is the best product I've found for tackling all that grime. I just pour it into a bucket with some water and go nuts with a scrub brush. It's also great for whitening whites in the laundry." —Nicole Sforza, Executive Editor

"After using the Swiffer WetJet on my apartment floors for years, I recently made the switch to Swiffer's new Power Mop — and, boy, am I glad I did. The cleaning pad has hundreds of powerful scrubbing strips and it easily attaches to the mop head. Then, simply spray and mop to get all that dirt and grime off your floors. I love that the large swivel head makes it easy to clean under furniture and baseboards — so Swiffer, right? When you're done, just throw the dirty cleaning pad away. The mop is also super slim so it's easy to store in my small closet." —Rory Halperin, Senior Commerce Editor, Branded Content & Special Projects

"These wipes are classics for a reason! Not only do they kill 99.9% of viruses and bacteria, but they are easy to use and work right away. I keep a pack of these wipes under my kitchen and bathroom sinks and wipe down all of my flat surfaces weekly. Plus, they don't smell super offensive or chemically — just fresh. Snag this 3-pack for $13 — that's $0.06 a wipe!" —Julia Webb, Commerce Manager

"Despite constant mopping, the wood floors in my apartment were looking rough — like abandoned home-type rough. No Pine Sol or Fabuloso was helping. So in an effort to revive them a bit without annoying my landlord for a drastic refresh, I bought this cleaning and polishing combo. And let me tell you: this stuff brought them back to a glistening, bowling-lane type of shine. The results were beyond what I thought this stuff would do, and I couldn't be happier." —Scott Simone, Managing Editor
