From a $2 kitchen cleanser to a viral grout scrubber, shop these clever cleaning products

You'll wish you knew about these affordable solutions sooner.

When cleaning our homes, most of us tend to focus on common chores like vacuuming, wiping down counters and dusting surfaces. And while those every day tasks are certainly necessary, there are plenty of less obvious areas in each room that are easily forgotten.

When it comes to keeping your home looking (and smelling) fresh, staying on top of grouting, shower drains and even your garbage disposal and dishwasher should be part of your cleaning routine. Though they can be tougher to take on (which is part of the reason why they often get skipped), having the right supplies can make all the difference.

As part of our Shop This List series, we've curated a bundle of affordable cleaning supplies from Target designed to help you conquer all of the nooks and crannies of your home, from stinky drains to dirty screens. Plus, we've made it easy to grab all these must-haves at once: Below, you can add all six items to your cart in just one click, then check out at target.com.

The best part? Products start at just $2. (Note: Prices may vary depending on location.) Shop the full list now, or keep scrolling to learn more about each item.

Bar Keepers Friend Multipurpose Cleanser & Polish

Before giving up on sheet pans and cookware sets that have seen better days, consider a deep clean with Bar Keepers Friend, a tried-and-true product among chefs and home cooks alike. A multipurpose cleansing and polishing product, it works on stainless steel, porcelain, aluminum, glass, ceramic and most other non-porous hard surfaces, according to the brand. It can help tackle rust, heavily crusted food and mineral deposits, and can even be used in the kitchen sink or your toilet bowl.

After seeing before-and-after posts on TikTok, one Shop TODAY editor used the product to restore baking sheets and other cookware: “It did require a fair amount of elbow grease. But as soon as I started, I could see that it was actually working better than the other cleaning products that I had tried before, so I kept scrubbing," she wrote, adding that she was "impressed by the results."

Plink Garbage Disposal Cleaner and Deodorizer


Say goodbye to stink in your kitchen sink! According to the brand, when you plop one of these easy-to-use, ball-shaped cleaning tablets into your disposal and run it, the tablet will wash away any lingering odor, leaving your sink with a fresh lemon scent. They're designed to be used twice a week or as needed.

Rubbermaid Power Scrubber

From beauty staples to cleaning products, these days we discover most of our favorite items on TikTok. And over the past year, we’ve seen multiple videos on the app that show off this power scrubbing tool by Rubbermaid. It looks like an electric toothbrush thanks to its oscillating head, and the brand says it can clean twice as fast as manual scrubbing, making it perfect for tough areas. It also comes with two heads — one designed specifically for grout scrubbing and one for all-purpose use — that you can swap in, depending on what area of your home you’re cleaning.

Cascade Platinum Dishwasher Cleaner

Over time, all of the grease and grime from your dirty dishes can sneak into your dishwasher’s pipes, preventing the appliance from performing to the best of its ability (often leading to that dreaded dishwasher odor). Luckily, these tablets were designed to make it easy to clean your dishwasher. All you need to do is place one in your machine and run the cycle. According to the brand, using a tablet each month will wash away unwanted grease, grime and limescale buildup.

Uber Screen Cleaning Kit with Dual Micro Fiber Cleaning Cloth

From phones and tablets to laptops and TVs, tech devices are some of the most-used items in our homes, so you don’t want to forget about them when you’re cleaning. This cleaning kit comes with an alcohol-free cleaning spray and a soft microfiber cloth that you can use to clean all the screens in your home. Plus, it’s compact enough to take on the go.

Clorox Drain Cleaner


It can be easy to forget about cleaning your drains until it's too late, leaving you with water piling up in the sink or tub. To keep them clear sans chemicals, this handy tool is a go-to! According to the brand, it can reach deep (up to 18 inches!) into sinks and shower drains to grab and pull out hair and remove clogs. Plus, you'll get two disposable cleaners in this inexpensive pack.
