Amazon customers love an industrial strength floor cleaner, and the Oreck Commercial ORB550MC Commercial Orbiter Floor Machine is a universal favorite, with hundreds of five-star reviews, including this one: “I used it on my son’s throw rug in his room. We have a German Shepard and her hair gets into everything. I went over it with the orange grout scrubber, then a quick follow up with my vacuum (didn’t use any cleaners). In the past… 45 minutes to an hour. With the orbiter….total time was less than five minutes.” Here are 10 tips for cleaning your whole house in a day.
The problem with potty-trained cats
We weren’t going to question how a toilet got this dirty in the first place, but the Clorox ToiletWand Disposable Toilet Cleaning System customers who provided this stunning transformation volunteered the info: “So, we have a toilet that belongs to the cats. We don’t use it, we don’t look at it, we like to pretend it does not exist. Even with semi-regular flushing, cat waste is pretty nasty stuff and built up quickly in the bowl. One of these wands cleaned it up in a single session!” If you love to pamper your cat, check out these high-end cat furniture pieces you have to see to believe.

OxiClean Versatile Stain Remover has thousands of fans on Amazon, but one in particular demonstrated the power of oxygen bleach by putting it to the true test by attempting to clean out old, dried blood. “I’ll let my pictures speak to how amazing this works. I had a stained mattress that I’d been covering with a mattress pad for years. As I was preparing for a move, I decided to give Oxiclean a try and see if it could remove the stains that had been there for well over SEVEN YEARS. I honestly don’t even know what caused the stains, but Oxiclean removed them… I honestly can’t believe the results. I wish I’d done this sooner!” Learn about the 11 everyday items you don’t wash nearly enough.
When a fence drastically changes color and looks like an entirely new fence, you know you’ve got a great pressure washer. The Sun Joe SPX3000 Pressure Joe Electric Pressure Washer is one of those, according to this customer who swears by it: “We live in Florida and recently purchased a 15-year-old house that I don’t think has ever been pressure washed. I would say this is a must-have for anyone who lives in an area where there’s a lot of moisture and mold/mildew, (or whatever that dark stuff is that gets into our concrete). I pretty much expected it to clean the concrete and the siding, but what really blew our minds was the unpainted wooden fence. I never even realized it was dirty, I just thought that was how wood looked when it was outside for 15 years.” Here’s how you can make a shabby wood fence look good as new.

When you mean business, a brush on the end of a power drill is the cleaning tool for you. And for Amazon customers, the Drillbrush Bathroom Surfaces Tub, Shower, Tile, and Grout All Purpose Power Scrubber Cleaning Kit is nothing short of a miracle: “I let my tub get extra dirty on purpose because I knew this brush set was coming. In five minutes my tub was sparkling clean. This item is no joke. The flat brushes are awesome for big surfaces and the cone brush hits the hard to reach corners. I liked them so much I bought a set for my Mom.” You’ll want to steal these 16 genius cleaning hacks professional house cleaners use.
Tough on tiles
Your bathroom is about to get the scrubbing of its life. Customers can’t get enough of the Homitt Electric Spin Scrubber, and one is taking it to the next level after her tile floor became immaculately clean. “Obsessed with this! I have textured floors in the kitchen that are really hard to clean and easily accumulate dirt and stick to the floor. After cleaning with this scrubber, it’s made such a difference!” These 39 cleaning tips will make your home shine.
Erase your dirty secrets
If you haven’t heard about the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, it’s about time you learned about this product that truly lives up to its name — especially on Amazon. Just ask this user, who was able to clean dried wax off the wall: “These erasers are exactly what they claim to be… MAGIC! My apt has white walls throughout, and these erasers get out all kinds of blemishes. A few months ago, don’t ask me what I was doing but somehow my hand jerked while I was literally just standing next to my dresser which had a lit candle, and I sent the candle flying. I got red wax all over my white wall! For about two minutes I went into sheer panic mode, but then I calmed down and used my head. I waited for the wax to harden a little, then used my nail to scrape it off (I don’t recommend this, the feeling and the sound is excruciating! in hindsight, I should have just used a credit card or something similar lol). Once I scraped it all off, it left a pink stain where the wax had been, so I grabbed my magic eraser, added a little water and watched my wall transform back to its pristine self.” Don’t miss these other fast cleaning fixes that get rid of grime.
