Scrubbing tough stains and grime from household surfaces can take some serious elbow grease. Instead, what you really need are powerful electric scrubbers. These are great for any home, strong enough to take on shower tile buildup like soap scum and mildew, as well as kitchen floors, windowsills and even ovens, grills and stovetops. So what should you look for when buying one? Check out our guide below.

Electric Scrubber Buying Guide

From choosing the type of scrubber to their attachments, here are the features you need to know about.

Cord vs. Cordless: With a traditional power cord-based model, you won’t have to worry about a battery running out in the middle of cleaning. But, power cords can get all tangled up and might need an extension if you stray too far from an outlet. Some models are hybrids and feature both options, which is best for a bigger house.

Attachments: For an even deeper and more targeted clean, different brush heads will dive in and get the job done. Much like the attachments on a vacuum, these are specifically designed for varied surfaces and crevices, like a designated corner brush. An efficient brush will not only break up stains, but also reduce splashing water and soap. The brushes come in different materials to prevent scratching up your house, and for hard-to-reach places, most include handle extensions for increased length to reach the ceiling.

Water Resistance: A truly waterproof spin brush is going to be your best bet here. While you probably won’t be going to any extremes with these tools, the idea here is to protect the battery and mechanical parts from getting damaged, since they’ll be coming into pretty close contact with all sorts of liquid cleaning solutions.

Extras:  A microUSB port can allow you to charge it up in more places, like when cleaning your car. Storage is also worth consideration. After you’re done, some models let you hang it up on a hook, or can stand upright on their own, ready for the next time you reach for it.

Don’t let the small size of this brush mislead you. The Grimebuster spins fast and safely breaks up even set stains. It works easily in water, especially for washing dishes. The brush heads are dishwasher-safe, designed for multiple surfaces. When you’re all done, simply stick it back in its ergonomic charging stand.

4. Treetech Electric Spin Scrubber

This scrubber charges through a regular AC adapter to fuel the 2200mAh battery, and gives you a lit-up green LED light when it’s full, or an orange when it’s charged enough (21%-60%) to use. The three included brush heads are a literal snap to put on, and an auto-shutoff feature protects surfaces from scratching when too much pressure is applied. The head can twist and bend to cover different angles, while the handle ranges from 33 to 41 inches.
