The best electric scrubbers in 2024

Check out our top picks and read on to learn about all the surfaces and nooks and crannies you can use this electric scrubber on to clean. 

Best electric scrubber overall: Voweek electric spin scrubber


Probably the most famous electric scrubber on TikTok, this Voweek model is loved for its multiple cleaning attachments and its extendable base. The electric spin scrubber can be extended more than 3.5 feet and its head can be rotated in three different directions, including 90, 135 and 180 degrees. This allows you to get into hard-to-reach places such as the top of your shower walls, and saves you from the fatigue and back pain that you may experience while bending down to clean baseboards, or the interior of your shower or bathtub. 

The scrubber has two speeds (high and low) and four cleaning attachments, including big and small flat brushes, a corner brush and a dome brush, the latter of which is good for deep cleaning. This electric spin scrubber can also work for a long time -- the battery lasts 1.5 hours on a single charge. 

This electric scrubber has a 4.4-star rating on Amazon. One reviewer said: "This has helped make cleaning the shower/tub so much easier. No more bending down and scrubbing with a back is thanking me! 

"Used it several times so far and the charge has held great! I also like how you can adjust the angle of it as well. Great buy!"

What's more, this electric spin scrubber is on sale for a limited time. Regularly $90, you can get it now at Amazon for $40.

Most attachments: Leebein electric spin scrubber


What stands out about this spin scrubber is its variety of included cleaning attachments. Electric spin scrubbers tend to come only with harder, bristle-brush cleaning attachments, but this one has softer scrub heads, perfect for sensitive surfaces or those that just don't need a deep clean. These include a small and big cloth brush, great for getting rid of smudges on mirrors, a sponge brush and a wool-like brush. It also comes with small and big flat bristle brushes, a corner bristle brush and a scouring brush. 

What we also love about the Leebein electric spin scrubber is that it extends up to 4.5 feet and can be converted into a handheld cleaning tool, making it super easy to clean sinks, stovetops and countertops. It has two speed settings and lasts for an hour and a half on a single charge. 

This electric scrubber has a 4.3-star rating on Amazon. One verified customer said: "I have had a tub that no matter how much scrubbing I did, I could not get clean. This spin scrubber made my tub look new again. It does the job."

Another reviewer added: "Finally a product that keeps me off of my hands and knees. The attachments are of great quality. I'm always concerned about anything keeping and holding a charge but this bad boy did it. Got all the nooks and crannies without breaking a sweat. Cut my cleaning time in half."

Find it on Amazon for $40 after coupon.

Best for small areas: Rubbermaid power scrubber 18-piece kit


If you're looking for an electric scrubber that is better equipped to handle smaller cleaning jobs, get this power scrubber from Rubbermaid. This little Rubbermaid power scrubber is great for getting into small areas that your hands can't clean as efficiently, including the space between your range knobs, a kitchen faucet head, the exterior of your bathroom sink drain, the inside of your window sill and more. 

The power scrubber can scrub 60 times per second and has two speed settings, including pulse and continuous. The device is also water-resistant and comes with six microfiber pads, six non-scratch scrubber pads, a delicate brush head, a grout brush head and a large and an extra-large brush head. 

The Rubbermaid power scrubber 18-piece kit has a 4.5-star rating on Amazon. One reviewer commented, "I love the price and love the effectiveness. I have arthritis in my hands, so this makes my life much easier. The heads are easy to change and batteries seem to last long as well. 

"I would say that 'I will purchase again' but I already have! This is my second set. I use one for the kitchen and the other for the bathroom."

Most powerful scrubber: Dremel Versa PC10-07 4-volt power scrubber kit


Need extra power? This handheld electric scrubber, with a speed of 2,200 RPM, comes with five cleaning attachments, including a soft pad, two scouring pads and a bristle brush. Having these in your arsenal gives you the ability to clean several messes in your house, including stovetops, backsplashes, sink interiors, and more. It's also great for cleaning grills, spot cleaning stains on walls, and even getting out stubborn stains in cookware such as Dutch ovens

This scrubber can be charged via USB port and has an ergonomic design that will feel comfortable in hand. The exterior of the power scrubber is also made of water-resistant materials and comes with an attachable splash guard to prevent messes when initially turning on the machine. 

The Versa PC10-07 4-volt power scrubber has a 4.4-star rating on Amazon. One reviewer called this power scrubber a "game changer", adding: "I'm a housekeeper, and I started to develop tendonitis and carpal tunnel due to repetitive scrubbing motions. I was worried I'd have to quit and find another job. Then I found this. It's a total game changer. No more pain, and it lasts through cleaning a kitchen and three bathrooms. It hasn't died yet. If you're worried about the battery just charge it between tasks. For showers/tubs, I recommend this with the brush attachment and Scrubbing Bubbles."
