Mr. Clean Magic Erasers
Have annoying scuffs on your wall, skid marks on your floor, hard-to-remove marks on your counter? Mr. Clean Magic Erasers to the rescue. Just get the melamine foam wet and wipe away to your heart’s desire! At $4.94 for a four pack, these must-have cleaners come out to just over a dollar each.

You don’t need specialty cleaners to tackle the toughest chores in your home. Baking soda, which is basic and slightly abrasive, is useful for so many cleaning jobs. I love it for absorbing gross smells in the trash and fridge, and forming a paste that can easily scour away caked-on food from glass cooktops or degrease the inside of an oven that hasn’t been cleaned in months.
Buy: Arm & Hammer Baking Soda, $0.99 for one pound at Target
As long as we’re on the topic of pantry staples, white vinegar is another inexpensive must-have cleaner. Dilute it with water, then use it to clean glass, disinfect your kitchen sink, or de-grease your stovetop. A half cup in the wash is also great for dealing with stinky laundry!

Pumie Scouring Sticks
These hand-held pumice sticks belong in every cleaning lineup. People love these for removing the toughest toilet bowl rings, but you can also use them for removing baked-on food or stubborn stains in your bathtub or shower — all at a fraction of the price you’d pay for specialty cleaners.

In search of an all-purpose cleaner that can do everything from cleaning wood floors to disinfecting food prep surfaces? Look no further than Pine-Sol. This versatile cleaning hero is concentrated, so you can dilute it to different strengths, getting up to 12 gallons of cleaning power out of one $3 bottle.
