    1. A bottle of Iron OUT Rust Stain Remover that'll transform that bathroom you've been meaning to clean for months now...

    Just spray it on the rusted area, wait a few minutes, and rinse away to reveal the original surface.

    Promising review: "Holy wizardry! Seriously it was more work to clean the mirror over the vanity than use this product. With almost no effort, this made my dark orange, iron-water shower stall white again. I definitely suggest wearing a mask or bandana and running the ventilation fan if spraying in an enclosed area. Great product!" —Jessica B

    Get it from Amazon for $5.48.

    2. An Instant Pot to help revolutionize the way you cook every. single. night. Say goodbye to eating popcorn for dinner three nights a week.

    It's a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, sauté pan, yogurt maker, and food warmer all rolled into one nifty appliance.

    Promising review: "I can't believe that I love this thing. All my friends were getting them and raving about it. But I absolutely hate my slow cooker, and I figured this device would be much the same. I finally decided to get one when my friend posted that she had made amazing carnitas in it. My husband is Mexican and carnitas are his favorite food, so I thought I'd get one to try it out and hope everyone was right. The first thing I made (after the water test) was the carnitas and they KNOCKED OUR SOCKS OFF. Then I made rice and it came out better than my old rice cooker. Tonight I made ribs and the entire family went wild. I've had this Instant Pot for roughly 48 hours, and I'm already using it for a fourth time right now to make oatmeal. Get one. You will not be sorry." —Regina Croskey-Corcoran

    Get it from Amazon for $59.95+ (available in 3-, 6-, and 8- quart).

    3. The Foreo Luna Mini 2, which is an amazing face-cleaning brush that vibrates to remove makeup, dirt, and oil, so you'll have amazing skin in as little as 60 seconds.


    Promising review: "I bought this about a month ago after seeing all the hype it got on BuzzFeed. I have oily, sensitive, acne-prone skin, and have always been wary of chemical exfoliants-most just tend to irritate my skin and make me break out more. The first thing that drew me to the Luna mini 2 was that I'd never need to buy replacement heads. I was a little concerned about the price tag, but I reminded myself that the upfront cost would be one-and done since there's no brush heads to buy. And honestly, this brush has been worth every penny! After the first use, my skin felt the smoothest it has ever felt! The only (minor) drawback, was that the first week or two, I did see a temporary "purge" of gunk from my pores that resulted in a temporary spike in breakouts, which other reviewers have mentioned, but this was thankfully short lived. Now after a nearly a month of use, my skin is more radiant, softer/smoother, breaking out less, and even I'm starting to see a reduction in the size of my huge pores, which no product has ever given me before-. I also have a better oil balance in my skin. So for me, the results have taken a little time have totally been worth the wait! Needless to say, I'm very pleased with this product and have been recommending it to all of my friends. Thanks Foreo!" —Knonymously

    Get it from Amazon for $139 (available in five colors).

    4. A grout ink pen you can use to make your shower or bathroom floor look as good as the day you moved in.

    Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised by how far these went. I did the entire floor of my large master bathroom plus a little of the shower with one pen. It is pretty forgiving and you have quite a bit of working time before it dries completely. This was not a quick task, but it went faster than I thought it would. I was worried the white would look too bright, but it just makes everything look so much cleaner. I'm very happy with this product!" —Jenelle

    Get it on Amazon for $7.80 (available in three colors).

    5. A bottle of poop spray to save your bathroom and guests from any unfortunate smells.


    Just give the bowl a spritz before you go and save your self from an embarrassing situation. We've all be there!

    Promising review: "We are a family of six in a small one-bathroom house. This is, to put it lightly, a horrific nightmare — particularly after my teenage son spends some time in the bathroom. After a couple of weeks of gentle encouragement ('YOU ARE KILLING EVERYONE. SPRAY THAT STUFF ON THE WATER BEFORE YOU POOP OR I'M TAKING AWAY YOUR PHONE AND, SO HELP ME GOD, I WILL CALL YOUR GIRLFRIEND AND TELL HER EXACTLY WHY YOU GOT IT TAKEN AWAY.') he started using it regularly. The bathroom is much less disgusting now after he leaves." —Supa D

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in seven sizes and 20 scents)

    6. A splurge-worthy cordless Dyson that'll revolutionize the way your vacuum your home. Suddenly, one of your least favorite chores will become your favorite. You may even spill more just to clean it up.


    I would know because I've been using one of these for the past couple months. I used to DREAD vacuuming. I hated how long it took, how you had to keep stopping to unplug and replug in the cord, and how mundane the whole experience was. Well, not anymore. I honestly never thought I'd be the kind of person to get excited about getting a vacuum, but this baby is brilliant. I can vacuum my whole apartment in about 5 minutes (It's pretty small) without ever really stopping. Plus, it has different attachments that help me reach those hard-to-reach places (*cough, cough* under my couch) that haven't seen a vacuum in years.

    Promising review: "I always wondered what the hype was all about for Dyson vacuums. Now I know. I just traded in my heavy, corded vacuum for the this animal and wow am I impressed! It doesn't lose suction and has enough battery life to take care of about 2000 square feet in one go, with multiple stops to empty the dirt cup. I also love how convenient it is to store." —Rachel M

    Get it from Amazon for $239.19.

    7. An Aquis Lisse Luxe Hair Towel you can wear to ~wrap~ up the amount of time it takes to dry your hair. This little guy sucks up the water fast, so you can be ready and out the door in no time.

    Natalie Brown, BuzzFeed / Via Aquis

    Promising review: "I’m surprised by how well this actually works! I truly have coarse, un-tame-able hair that I must half air dry and then blow dry — it’s a science. But this towel really helps the texture of my hair and helps it dry more quickly. Now I can put the towel on when I get out of the shower, then be blow drying in 15 minutes. Cuts down 'handling' time when it comes to drying!" —Katie

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in eight colors and patterns).

    8. A small but mighty sharpener that'll keep your knives looking sharp. Plus, they'll actually work better. You'll be wondering how you went so long cutting with dull knives.


    Promising review: "This portable mini knife sharpener really works! This little tiny knife sharpener, sharpens like a pro. I was skeptical because of size and cost, but i am impressed on how well it sharpens my stainless steal and ceramic knives. Plus, it fits in the palm of your hand!" — Lynshina Gray

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    9. A TubShroom with some of the most disgusting but oh-so satisfying review images. You may wonder how you still have hair on your head after using this product...but at least it won't be backing up your tub anymore.,

    Promising review: "This is absolutely worth every penny. Kudos to the inventor of this product. I have thick long dark hair, and after two months of moving into my own apartment, my shower drain was completely clogged with all my hair. After being disgusted at the amount of hair I had to clean out with a snake (which is NOT a fun task), I decided I needed to purchase something to prevent it from happening again. I read about this product on a BuzzFeed article, and I have no regrets. It is so satisfying to clean out, and it does not lie when it says it catches every single hair. I have had it for close to 4 months without once instance of my shower drain backing up. This product is absolutely worth it." —Jess

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    10. A bracelet holder so you never get stuck at home alone trying to put on a bracelet by yourself.


    Promising review: "I can't believe I've waited this long to buy one of these. My eyesight is failing, including my depth perception so wearing bracelets has been difficult unless they are slip on. This jewelry helper is easy to use. Now I can wear bracelets again." —Cat Mom

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in three colors).

    11. A squatty potty that adjusts your position so you can go number two more easily and live a life without bloating or constipation holding you back.


    Promising review: "I was skeptical. I saw the videos, the BuzzFeed posts, the Amazon reviews. I didn't believe the hype. After switching to a keto (low-carb) diet and sucking big time at getting enough fiber, I was stopped up and desperate for a solution. I bought the Squatty Potty as a Valentine's Day present to my intestines. It took a couple weeks for my body to get used to it, but I am now a happy pooper. Skeptics, believe me: this thing frickin' works." —Kalen Stockton

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    12. A makeup-removing cloth you can use to get a fresh and clean face using only water. Just get it damp and watch it perform magic on your face!

    Taylor Miller / Via BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I purchased this based on positive reviews and now know that they didn't even touch how amazing this product is. I was tired of using mascara removers and washing my face and still having makeup on. Well, that problem is now gone. This product seriously does what it says — it erases makeup! I could not believe the way it removed my makeup the first time I used it! I use it for a week, toss it in the wash, and use it again. I was wondering how it would clean up in the laundry, and it always looks brand new. I no longer have to use chemicals to remove my makeup!" —StaceyB

    Get one on Amazon in pink, white, or black for $20.

    Plus, this was picked as BuzzFeed Review's best mid-price makeup remover!

    13. An egg cooker that'll be an egg-cellent addition to your kitchen. Sorry, I had to! It cracks me up!


    It can also make omelets, poached, and scrambled eggs!

    Promising review: "You know those objects that are totally unnecessary, but you see them and fall in love and live forever in happiness with your random kitschy thing? This is that thing. I saw this egg cooker on a BuzzFeed list and, even though I am a fully functioning adult who has never had trouble cooking eggs before in my life, I knew I had to have it. I have not been disappointed. It makes especially lovely, perfectly round omelets with minimal cleanup required. Hard and soft boiled eggs cook evenly and taste great. The poached eggs are tender and melt in your mouth over toast. As other reviews have mentioned, the timer alarm is LOUD. Like, picture a fire alarm mixed with an incoming nuclear missle alarm, but make it about 12 times louder. There's no way to turn it off, so prepare to muffle it up with some cotton and tape if you want to keep your ears. It's the perfect kitchen appliance. I grin from ear to ear every time I use it." —Sonnet A. Fitzgerald

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in five colors).

    See BuzzFeed's full write-up on the Dash egg cooker here.

    14. A bag of Bottle Bright tablets you stick in your water bottles, coffee mugs, etc. to remove stains and odors you thought might be stuck there forever.


    Promising review: "I actually found this product on a BuzzFeed article on things that you can’t believe you don’t already own. I figured I’d give it a shot as we have plenty of gross looking travel coffee mugs. I was not disappointed, in fact, I was blown away. I was amazed and even a tad disgusted at how gross they truly were." —Nanners1010

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $8.

    15. A pet hair removal glove that'll essentially trick your pet into thinking you're giving them some love, when in fact you're removing all the loose hair so it doesn't end up in piles around your house.

    Plus, it's machine-washable!

    Promising review: "My cat never really enjoyed being brushed; we had one of those ones with flexible metal bristles. He would sit for a very short time and then walk away. Not anymore! My cat is very skittish so the sound of the velcro scared him in the beginning, but he quickly got used to it. He lays still, purrs, allows me to get his under belly a bit, and even allows me to groom his fur 'against the grain' which he would never do. Today was the first time I did that and you can see from the pics (above) how much fur I got. Love it!" —Alicia Mead

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    16. A migraine stick with a mix of peppermint, spearmint, and lavender essential oils to help stop headaches from ruining your life.

    Katy Herman / Via BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "After reading an article on BuzzFeed that touted this product, I bought one for my boyfriend who suffers from awful, frequent headaches. It WORKS. Not only does he swear by it, he has purchased them for his Mom and several friends. FANTASTIC." —SarahElizabeth

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    17. A toilet bowl cleaner that takes a strong stomach to look at the before and after photos but that means it works.

    You get a caddy with a wand and six disposable sponges. Simply attach the disposable sponge to the wand, scrub around the whole toilet bowl, and pop the sponge in the trash (you never have to touch it!). You can also get more sponges when you're done with the included ones.

    Promising review: "So, we have a toilet that belongs to the cats. We don't use it, we don't look at it, we like to pretend it does not exist. Even with semi-regular flushing, cat waste is pretty nasty stuff and built up quickly in the bowl. One of these wands cleaned it up in a single session! Before-and-after pic attached (above)." —Whitney

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    18. A wine stain removing spray because you shouldn't be held responsible for any spills that happen during happy hour or movie night with your friends. Red wine is too good not to drink!

    Emily Shwake / Via BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I fell in love with this product some 15 years ago, and I am so very happy that it's still available in the same wonderful formula as ever. It has a fantastic citrus scent. This takes care of any stain so fast and efficiently, it's become a party trick. I have seriously poured red wine over a white comforter to demonstrate how great it is to a friend once. It is a miracle in a bottle! We use it for all sorts of cleaning on materials around the house, and one bottle has lasted us years! This is definitely a product every home should have." —Melanie Nolen

    Get it from Amazon for $5.92.

    19. An earwax removal oil you'll be talking your friends' ears off about because of how clean it will leave you feeling., Amazon

    Promising review: "My right ear was totally plugged so I went to the pharmacy and the pharmacist said that this is the one doctors usually tell patients to get. I put the drops in, waited, then flushed my ear out with very warm water and OH MY GOSH... the gunk that came flowing out onto the towel blew my mind! It's amazing that I was ever able to hear at all with all that crap in my ear. This stuff works." —CD

    Get it from Amazon for $5.68.

    20. A witch hazel toner more than 10,000 people (and probably posts, tbh) rave about. It reduces redness, acne, dullness, and more, leaving you with simply amazing skin.

    AnaMaria Glavan

    Promising review: "I saw this in a BuzzFeed article and decided to give it a try. I use it after washing my face in the morning (before putting in any creams) and at night before bed. My skin has cleared significantly and my face smells of roses! Win-win!! Also it doesn't over dry my face so my face has been less oily which is another plus! I'm very happy BuzzFeed didn't lie about this one. lol" —Amanda Cerbone

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    Read more about why this witch hazel toner is so great.

    21. A 3-in-1 avocado tool that splits, pits, and slices your avocado in if you needed another reason to eat more avocado toast.


    Promising review: "I used to laugh at this kind of product until my friend was using hers. It made it all so easy! Honestly, I can't believe someone as clumsy as me was functioning without it. Where I used to use a knife and spoon or fork to deal with avocados, it's now just this one thing. Each part of the tool does its job really well, and it's easy to clean. I love it so much. Even if you're not a clever tool kinda person, just get it. It's worth it." —kikikitten

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    22. A pack of bed-sheet suspenders to hold your fitted sheet in place –because having it slip off the bed every other day is just annoying, and you don't need that in your life.


    Promising review: "My husband turns a lot in his sleep and has always woken up with the fitted sheet halfway off his side of the bed. Bought these and we have NEVER once had to adjust the sheet in the morning! These are amazing!

    A tip for putting them on: lay the fitted sheet on top of the bed with the corners inside out (flipped up, off the mattress). Then attach these bands to each of the corners and tighten the bands. Once they are all clamped and tightened, THEN flip the corners onto the mattress. We have a pillow top 10" thick king mattress and this is the best method to get these on. Hope that helps!" —LindseyB

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $8.99.

    23. A jar of Active Wow charcoal powder that makes your mouth look about the same as if you ate black frosting, but has such a better result—whiter teeth.

    All you have to do is get your toothbrush damp, dip the brush into the jar, and then brush your teeth like you normally do. Rinse to remove.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical. I was wrong. This stuff is LEGIT. I had been wanting to do something for teeth whitening for quite some time, and I saw this stuff featured in a BuzzFeed article and decided to go for it on a whim. I am not joking—I saw a difference after 3 times brushing with it. I literally had a mark on my front tooth that I thought was permanent, only to see it disappear entirely. It's legit—go ahead and buy it." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.89.

    Read one BuzzFeeder's review of this charcoal teeth whitener here.

    24. A carpet stain remover with better results than professional carpet cleaners because saving money is just as important as having clean carpet.

    All you have to do is spray the remover on the stain, rub your fingers through it, and then use an absorbent cloth to blot and remove the stain. The spay is non-toxic, so it won't irritate your skin.

    Promising review: "I have had my carpet professionally cleaned twice in an attempt to get stains from the previous owner out of the carpet. I got nowhere. I saw this product in a BuzzFeed list, and since it is reasonably priced, I decided to try it. IT GOT THE STAINS OUT!!!! I couldn't have been more surprised, based on the money I'd spent to have professional cleaners come. The product did not get the wear/dirtiness out of the carpet but got ALL of the stains out. A HUGE step in the right direction! Wahoo!!!!" —Elizabeth Reamer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in three quantities).

    25. A clay mask that will clean deep down in your pores to help you stop cystic acne at its source.


    You should dilute the mast with water or apple cider vinegar to get the best results!

    Promising review: "Cystic acne: the bane of my dermatological life, and maybe yours too? This clay has helped immensely in keeping it at bay. I do a treatment once a week (since it is a bit time-consuming), but I haven't had any of those awful underground, takes-two-weeks-to-surface pimples since I've started using the clay. Combined with apple cider vinegar, it's immensely helpful for oily, cystic acne-prone skin. My skin's been so much happier since I've started using it. You need this. Right now." — Cyn Tervention

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

    26. Some super cute cable-hugging critters to support your charging cord and protect it from bending and breaking. We see you Apple!

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "I bought a couple of these to reinforce a cord that has become weak due to normal wear and tear. I was hoping they were functional for a Galaxy phone (which I'm thrilled they are) but had no idea how extremely cute they would be. I've ended up buying SEVERAL more for stocking stuffers." —jwow76

    Get them from Urban Outfitters for $6 each ( or 2 for $10; available in 21 animals) or a similar version from Amazon for $3.99+ each (available in 28 animals and varieties).

    27. A set of Bamboo charcoal shoe deodorizers because smelly feet and shoes aren't cute on anybody.


    Promising review: "I have a pair of black leather flats that stank so badly my husband would yell at me if I took them off anywhere near him. But I love the shoes! So I had to find something to make the stench go away without leaving me with an allergic reaction. Mini Moso was the answer. I honestly couldn’t believe it. A few days after placing them in my prized off shoes, I took a whiff from about a foot away. Nothing. I got closer. Nothing. I stuck my nose practically in the shoe. Ok, maybe that’s pushing things, but I’ve got to tell you that 95% of the broken-in leather grossness was gone. So happy!" —Erin

    Get one pair from Amazon for $9.95.

    28. A can of fume-free oven cleaner that'll make your oven so clean, Hansel and Gretel may be tricked again.

    Promising review: "My oven was in bad shape. I had tried doing the whole baking soda and peroxide trick, but it made things worse. I tried this after seeing it in a BuzzFeed article, and it actually worked! Just let it sit for about 4 hours, and the nastiness wipes off effortlessly. I highly recommend." —Natalie C

    Get it from Amazon for $4.72.

    29. A pastel accordion folder with five expandable pockets to keep all your papers organized whether you're in school, have a job, or just like to stay on top of life.


    Promising review: "This file folder is life changing! Not only is it cute and simple, it's durable and roomy! The material makes it easy to add and remove labels without leaving any sticky residue. It's not too bulky or heavy, so it's easy to carry around." —Itcel

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in eight colors).

    30. A bottle of NYX setting spray you can spritz on after doing your makeup in the morning and not worry about having to apply again. You'll look and feel great all day long.


    Promising review: "I have tried six different brands of setting spray in the past year. And this NYX matte finish setting spray is by far the best I've used. Great price and quick shipping. I highly recommend this product. Yesterday I did my makeup at 5 a.m. and then left town for a big family function and did not get home until midnight. Fourteen hours later and my makeup still looked perfect like I just finished it! So thrilled with this setting spray!" —Kat Little

    Get it from Amazon for $8.49.

    31. A handle that'll make it *sooooo* much easier to carry all your groceries in one trip.


    Each handle can hold up to 50 lbs.

    Promising review: "I live in an upstairs apartment with 16 steps in a row up to my front door, and I have about a 40-yard walk from my car to the base of the steps. These handles allow me to EASILY tote all or most of all of my grocery bags from car to my apartment. Before I was using almost every finger on both hands to struggle the bags to my apartment, with some pain in some of my fingers." —Doubting Thomas

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $9.99.

    32. A brown sugar-softening bear you soak in water for 20 minutes and then place in your brown sugar to ensure that it stays moist and ready for use for three to six months.


    Promising review: "This is the second brown sugar bear I've purchased because they work so well. They are simple to use and very effective. Soak it in water and then place it in your brown sugar container. It will keep the sugar soft and easy to scoop. If you have brown sugar that has already hardened and is like a solid rock, you can place the bear in the container and by the next day you will be able to scoop it again. It's simple, effective, and inexpensive. There is no reason not to get this little bear." —Hannah M.

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99 (also available in gingerbread, maple leaf, and sugar cookie shapes).

    33. A rosewater facial spray to spritz on your face when you need a little afternoon pick-me-up — it'll leave your skin feeling refreshed so you don't feel the need to pile on more makeup.

    Mario Badescu

    Promising review: "This is a very nice product. I use it as a refresher, not with makeup. It is nice and has a lovely floral scent. It's not too strong but relaxing. It offers a nice burst of cooling to your skin. It does not cause my skin to dry out or anything else negative. It has had a minimal, but mentionable, effect on reducing redness from psoriasis." —LLW

    Get it from Amazon for $7+ (available in five sizes and varieties).

    34. A Did You Feed The Dog? sign so your furry friend doesn't get away with being fed twice...again.


    Promising review: "This is an awesome product! There are four of us that were working together to feed the dogs. It simplified everything because I no longer have to text to see if anyone had fed them every morning. Now I just to see if it's green and if it's not, I feed them and indicate it. We all love it so much!" —Toni Deegan
