"This stuff is a COMPLETE miracle worker!" shared one of 149,000+ five-star reviewers. "I thought our white, marble island countertop was ruined in our brand new house. Our 2-year-old son left hot pink slime on it ... needless to say, we had a HUGE hot pink stain on our counter. We tried all types of cleaners, and this is the only thing that worked!"

"These little guys are beyond cute with their smiley faces, but it's their cleaning power that really shines." declared a happy customer. "They get firm in cold water for tough grime, and soft in warm water for lighter jobs. Super versatile for all my cleaning needs and they don’t scratch surfaces, which is a big plus. They do wear down with intense use, but honestly, they work so well I don’t mind. Cleaning’s actually fun now, and my kitchen’s never looked better. Definitely a repurchase for me!"

"I consider myself a connoisseur of stain removers," a reviewer noted. "With kids and pets, I have had to try them all, with varying results. This stuff is a miracle in a bottle. I had my doubts but decided to try it anyway. Holy smokes, this has removed every stain I’ve tried it on."

It's this easy: Just remove her hair (sorry, Mama!), fill her with vinegar and water, squeeze in some lemon if you want a fresh, citrusy scent, put her hair back on, pop her into the microwave and heat for 5-8 minutes. While she's in there, the vents in her hair will release a mist of the water-vinegar mixture, which helps soften and release all of that food buildup. Then, you can wipe everything down, no harsh chemicals or intense scrubbing required.

"Works like a charm," said this five-star fan, "I had been avoiding the ick in my microwave for far too long. I came across this while scrolling and knew it was time...When I take the angry mama out, all I need is a simple paper towel and it takes approximately one minute to remove all the gunk —super easy! I have recommended this to everyone."

These got a five-star rating from a pro: "I clean houses for a living and have been through quite a few rags, and also have my favorites that do better on certain surfaces. I took a chance with these, and it ended up being a great decision. They are large, but not too big, they have one side for the wipe and one for the buffing if need be, sturdy, they do what they're supposed to do and they don't fall apart easily or quickly. When they start to look raggedy, I will be ordering some more. It is a great deal for your money!
