The pros at the Good Housekeeping Institute’s Cleaning Lab understand the importance — and challenges — of finding the right cleaning products to tackle household chores. For decades, we have provided advice and product testing recommendations to help you select the cleaning formulas and appliances that work best, are easiest to use and save you time and effort. We’re thrilled to present our third annual Best Cleaning Product Awards to showcase the top-performing, most innovative products that make quick work of caring for your home.

How We Tested

To select these 57 top-performers for our 2021 Good Housekeeping Cleaning Awards, our GH Cleaning Lab and GH Institute pros as well as almost 70 consumer testers washed, scrubbed, vacuumed and polished their way through sprays, wipes, appliances and more, assessing 10,659 data points to find these winning products. When testing 150 cleaning product submissions, we used industry and in-house developed protocols to evaluate how well, for example, laundry detergents remove stains, how thoroughly washing machines launder clothing and how well multi-purpose cleaners cut grease.
