Clorox disinfecting wipes ($3 for 35 at mass retailers)
One wipe was all it took to erase coffee drips and suce from kitchen cabinets. Plus, the wipes disinfect, so they're ideal for phones, toilet seats and other germy surfaces. And they're not too sudsy, so they don't leave streaks.
"I use them for spills, the bathroom sink, the hamster cage. . .everywhere. They're thicker than other brands, they don't tear and they smell good." Dena Long, 44, Cookeville, Tenn.
