An architect at the Rockwell Group in Manhattan tipped us off to this oily solvent that removes labels from jars, lipstick from napkins and crayon from walls ($5 for 8 ounces; 800-321-6330).
Orange Glo Wood Cleaner & Polish
This orange oilbased spray glosses over scratches on furniture and adds a clean sheen to anything wooden. We especially like the citrus scent, which is reminiscent of a Creamsicle ($13 for 32 ounces; 800-781-7529).
Swiffer and Swiffer Wet
Our editor in chief adores the electrostatic cleaning action in the disposable cloths and the convenience of the sleek sweeper. Clip on the fabric (dry or wet) and "swiff" it around the floor to pick up every bit of dirt and dust ($15 for a starter kit; 800-214-8734).
