    Get it on Amazon for $12.89+ (available in four different styles).

    Promising review: "I love having clean floors but sometimes I'm lazy and I live near the beach, so sand can be a hassle on the hardwood floors in my apartment. I love these so much and have worn them every day since I got them. They are super comfy and help clean!" ⁠—Laura J

    Promising review: "I usually put to-go napkins in my cup holders to absorb the condensation from my iced coffees but stumbled upon these cute coasters as an alternative! The reviews are right about them being a bit smaller than the cup holders themselves, but I like that because it's easy to take in and out (I drive a 2016 Kia Optima SXL). They're such a nice touch to the interior of your car!" —Bree

    Promising review: "I love these little things! They diffuse tea so well while being so cute. I like seeing the colors soak through with my bamboo and lavender teas. I can't wait to try more loose-leaf blends, since this is more cost-effective." —Kirby Lynn

    Amazon

    They can also be put in the washing machine!

    Promising review: "I originally picked these up to use in lieu of nasty, nasty dishrags that invoke my inner THIS IS NOT CLEAN demon. Since then, I have used them for everything from cleaning the kitchen to wiping up spills. After I use then, I just toss in the wash and they are ready to go again. They are the perfect size and do an excellent job on every task to which I have applied them. They come in a variety of fun prints, and I have yet to wear one out. Paper towel usage has taken a real nosedive, which is a good thing given its relative scarcity at present." —sandra simpson-kraft

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $16.95 (available in two sizes and 16 designs).

    Promising review: "This is honestly one of the best purchases I’ve made in a while. It’s so useful. It is not cordless. It must remain plugged in, but it has a 5-foot USB cord. It even comes with two attachments. It’s not the most powerful suction but works excellent for crumbs and fine powders." —Lea M

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $15.95.

    The small black-and-white tool that looks like a vampire next to some garlic bread and garlic cloves.
    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $17.20.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.
