    49 Products Under $10 That’ll Help Fix Small Annoyances In Your Life

    NGL, wine stain-removing spray actually did change my life.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A wine stain-removing spray, because you shouldn't be held responsible for any spills that happen during happy hour or movie night. Red wine is too good not to drink out of fear of ruining your clothes, furniture, or anything else that gets in its way!

    The bottle of red wine stain remover sitting on the carpet next to a spilled red wine glass

    I can confirm that this works and works well. I've used it a number of times to remove different kinds of stains — red wine, rosé, and even berries. It got rosé out of a white T-shirt instantly and even removed red wine from my white/grey rug. It's super easy to use too. You just spray it on the stain, let it sit for a bit and scrub it away. I like to always have this on hand now because accidents happen.

    Promising review: "This stuff is like a miracle on those tough red wine or dark berry stains! Even works well on dark chocolate! My husband is the 'Stain King,' and on our last vacation he put some berries from a buffet into the pocket of his brand new khaki shorts (Why, you ask? Never got a good answer for this one!). As you can then figure, the berries, during the course of the day and while riding home in the suitcase got mashed up and stained the shorts pretty badly. (Luckily they didn't get on anything else in the suitcase.) When I unpacked, the stains had set for about two days, and I thought the shorts were going to be ruined. I saw this product online and ordered it. It got every bit of the set-in berry stains out! It was like magic, I sprayed it on, and it just DISAPPEARED! As I said, I have also had the opportunity to try it on several red wine and dark chocolate stains, and it's been a miracle for getting them out without any damage to the material. No fading at all, just takes out the stain!" —Linda R. Shinsky

    2. A Billie razor designed to actually make shaving easier so you'll probably actually be excited to shave your legs for the first time in, well, a while.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed, Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    Billie is a favorite on our team. We even wrote a review of the Billie Razor, and why we love it. I've been using it for the past couple of months. Not only is it super smooth and easy to use, but they also send you new razors every one to three months, depending on how often you shave. That way, you never have to try reallyyyyy hard to remember when the last time you switched the blade was, because one will show up at your door when it's time to change it.

    BuzzFeed Shopping Editor Rebecca O'Connell says: "Billie is just the most wonderful company, and every time I take a shower, I wonder if I should write them fan mail. First of all, everything they design is ADORABLE, so even if their razors were dull or flimsy, I'd still be a loyal fan. But luckily, their razors are as sharp as they are sharp looking. The handle is super lightweight and easy to grip. The razor heads are surrounded in a layer of soap, so they glide beautifully over skin without irritating it. Billie makes great razors, and it's awesome that they're so affordable. If only they could go back in time and stop me from paying absurd amounts of money on pharmacy brand razors in my youth."

    Get the starter kit from Billie for $9 (and then four replacement cartridges for $9 when you need them).

    3. A pasta measuring tool for anyone who usually just eyeballs how much pasta to make and ends up cooking enough for a family of six. This small device will make sure you make the right amount so you're not left with loads of leftovers.

    The tool with four differently sized holes to measure pasta meant for one, two, three, or four servings

    Promising review: "This is a lifesaver. I used to make more pasta than was necessary. Now I can make the perfect amount of pasta without looking like I’m trying to feed a whole army." —ashting

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    4. A magnetic cloud key holder you can easily place your keys on when you arrive home and know exactly where to find them when it's time to leave again.

    Reviewer pic of the white cloud key holder attached to the wall with a big set of keys hanging from it.

    Promising review: "This is one of the most useful purchases I've ever made on Amazon. I use it every single day to hang my keys. I've had it for at least half a year now it seems. It hasn't lost any magnetism, and it holds my car keys, remote start, USB, rewards/gift cards, house and work keys, etc. I'm in love. It's one of the best purchases I've made." —Makenah

    5. Some sound dampeners to place on the inside of your cabinets to avoid a huge fight with your roommate (or partner) when they wake you up by slamming all the cabinets while making breakfast...again.,

    Promising review: "These work very well to dampen the sounds of my idiot roommates slamming cabinet doors at all hours of the day. Just make sure you're wiping down the part of the cabinet they'll stick to before applying them. The adhesive is good and should hold for a while." —LMA

    Get it from Out the People for $8.

    7. A pair of reusable silicone ear plugs for tuning out any unwanted noise around you (roommates, loud streets, etc.) so you can sleep through the night and wake up feeling more rested than you have in months...or years., Amazon

    I live and will die professing my love for sleeping with earplugs in. Sleep is important to me (as it is for a lot of people), but I can't fall asleep or stay asleep with loud noises around me. I keep earplugs on my nightstand and put them in when I know my roommate will be coming home after I'm asleep (the door itself wakes me up). I also swear by traveling with them because you never know what kind of noise you're going to encounter in a hotel room or Airbnb.

    Promising review: "I moved from a quiet apartment to a busy and loud New York City corner, and I was so worried about sleeping. Trucks, horns honking, construction, I could hear it all. These have been AMAZING! They block and muffle way more sound than I ever expected. The only downside is that wearing them for a whole night does make my ears hurt a little, but sleep is so important that I’ll deal with it, and I am hoping that my ears will even get used to them. I highly recommend these!!" —Ashley R.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.97 (available in blue and green).

    8. A grooming 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.

    The grooming glove with silicone nodules, full of hair in front of a French bulldog
    AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed Shopping Editor AnaMaria Glavan says: "My dog is perfect in every way, but he has recently started to shed, and I am finding that all my clothes are covered in his fur. (According to his vet, it’s common for Frenchies to go through more shedding in the fall and spring to make way for a new ~seasonally-appropriate~ coat.) I had seen this pet grooming glove all over the internet, so I figured I’d give it a try. And boy oh good boy, it genuinely works.

    The glove is super comfortable and using it couldn’t be more foolproof: just put it on and run your hands through your pet’s fur. That’s it! The silicone grooves pick up so much fur with ease. Like, my dog looks close to hairless. HOW is he shedding so much!?!? After a few runs, I found that I would have to remove fur from the glove before continuing (you can pick up the fur with your other hand or run the glove under water — either works) but it’s no biggie. The silicone actually makes it really easy to keep this clean.

    We got Rockie when he was 5 and he’d been riddled with skin issues and allergies, so I was pretty nervous to use anything that could potentially aggravate his conditions. However! Not only does this *not* bother his skin, but he….loves this. A lot. He starts snoring after exactly two run-throughs on his back. Also, his coat looks SO shiny after each use! TL;DR: this is one of those inexpensive add-ons that any pet owner should have on hand."

    9. A Golden Girls-inspired dishwasher magnet so your roommate (or partner) will ~thank you for being a friend~ by letting them know they shouldn't put the dirty dishes into the clean dishwasher.

    The Red Swan Gift Shop / Etsy

    Get it from The Red Swan Gift Shop on Etsy for $7.95.

    10. A bug bite suction tool because mosquito bites ~suck~ so much and this little tool works to remove the ~pest-ky~ irritant, meaning no more itchiness!,

    This tool suctions up insect venom, saliva, and other irritants from under the skin, thus preventing your body from producing a reaction to the irritant (i.e. itchiness).

    Promising review: "I am a magnet for bites of all kinds and carry topical and medicines with me at all times — so I figured this would be a good product to see if it really works. It arrived on Monday and on Tuesday morning I woke up with a bug bite on my arm. I used this little tool (3x per the instructions) and documented it with photos. Immediately after using it, the bite stopped itching! And less than 24 hours later the bump/bite was gone! There is a very faint red mark from using the thing but a small price to pay IMO. Bottom line: it’s awesome. I’m carrying it with me everywhere!" —Rebecca

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95 (available in black and white).

    11. Foaming tablets you can use weekly on your garbage disposal to stop any build-up or odors from coming out of your sink. Nobody wants to deal with that grossness!

    Promising review: "This is a fun product to use! I do recommend using it with a disposal scrub brush, since I hadn’t cleaned my disposal in...many many took a little scrubbing in addition to get all the grime out. This made the process MUCH easier though, and I love the foam that bubbles up. It’s as fun to watch as it is good at cleaning. I’d buy again sometime." —Leslie

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $4.10.

    12. A mini trashcan to keep in your car so it doesn't become a place your friends wrinkle their noses at when they get in. Take care of your car and, honestly, you might feel like you've got your life together a bit more.

    the small trash can with the word "push" on the center cirlce-shaped openings

    Promising review: "It’s ridiculous how much I love these! The push part is on a spring so it stays closed when you aren’t pushing it, and of course, it perfectly fits in the cupholder of our vehicles. Pro tip: a quart-sized Ziploc is the perfect size to add as a liner and fold over the top to keep the inside clean!" —Chaos Coordinator

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    13. A dip clip you can attach to the side of your plate so you don't end up with ketchup-covered watermelon (I think that's happened at every single barbecue I've ever attended).

    The dip clip filled with ketchup and attached to a plate of french fries

    Promising review: "These are so handy! I got tired of my pretzels sliding into my honey mustard before I was ready to dip! This sent me on a search to resolve this little irritation and led me to the Dip Clips. They're nice secure clips and top-rack dishwasher safe. I found they work great for olives also. No move olives diving off my plate." —MzBzzb

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $4.99.

    15. Some eco-friendly bamboo towels that'll replace six months' worth of paper towels so you can keep your home clean, feel good about the impact you have on the environment, *and* never have to worry about using tissues to clean up a spill because you forgot to pick up paper towels when you were at the store.

    All you have to do when you're done using one is throw it in the wash!

    Promising review: "I clean for a living, so using these on the job as well as my home makes life much easier, and I can feel better about not being so wasteful. I use them for drying my hands, cleaning the countertops, and as a reusable Swiffer pad for floors. What I do is mark each one with a Sharpie. My first initial for hands and face at home, 'C' for cleaning counters and 'F' for floor. What I love about these the most is they dry a lot quicker than regular towels and washing them is super easy. Dirt and grime tend to just rinse right out. Even on the mop pads. It's incredible. Now I don't have to waste money buying the Swiffer refills. These are different to use but it's worth figuring out what works for you!! A must buy for eco-friendly cleaning!" —Joyce

    Get a roll of 20 sheets from Amazon for $8.99.

    16. Re-wear dry wash spray so you can freshen up those ~in-between~ clothes that you've worn once or twice and that aren't really dirty enough to fully wash, but that still feel wrong to put back in your closet.

    Love Home and Planet / Via

    Promising review: "I feel like Love Home and Planet said, 'Hey you know what that mom over there smells like mildew. I bet it's because she had 99 problems and laundry wasn't one of them.' Thank you for understanding that sometimes life happens, and I just don't put the clothes in the wash fast enough. This mom no longer stands three feet away from her coworkers LOL! I smell amazing all because of the dry wash spray. No joke!" —cindym35

    Get it from Target for $7.49.

    17. A pair of eyeglasses temple tips to stop your glasses from sliding off your face when you look down because it's 2021, and that really should never happen.

    Model wearing glasses with the temple tip on the end, keeping it in place

    Promising review: "I have bad eyesight, and my lenses are thicker than most. As a result, my glasses tend to slide down my nose if I start to sweat. It's extremely annoying. Let me tell you, these work great for me! I no longer have to push my glasses back up every 30 seconds or worry about my glasses falling off my face when I mow the grass. They're very comfortable And seem pretty durable so far. I'm still on my first pair and I've worn them non-stop since I got them a month and a half ago." —DeeJayDubbs

    Get them from Amazon for $6.99 (available in clear, black, and grey).

    18. A microwave egg cooker making it so simple for you to have a delicious breakfast in the morning. Just crack an egg, add some veggies (and maybe a pat of butter), and you'll have a delicious omelet in a matter of minutes. No more skipping breakfast because you're running late or just lazy.

    Promising review: "Eggs are not hard to cook, nor does it take much work. However, I didn’t do it often because if the clean-up and the addition of oil, etc. I now eat eggs nearly every day because it’s so quick and easy. I don’t have to add oil or butter to cook one, and I’ve just got one little thing to clean. Super simple and quick to clean (and dishwasher-safe). This has revolutionized my breakfast." —S. Hanlon

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    19. Lobe support patches meant to ~lift the weight off your shoulders~...err...well, ears because one should never be punished for wanting to wear big, cute earrings. These little miracle workers not only hide the stretches, but they also take the weight off your ears, so you can wear your fave pair all day long, no problem.,

    Promising review: "These are amazing. They are literal lifesavers. I LOVE my heavy Kendra Scott earrings, but I’m pretty sure they’re the culprit of why my right earring hole has ripped slightly. Using these support patches, it’s as if the earrings don’t even exist. I am going to tell all of my friends to get these for their heavy statement earrings!!" —Donthemom50

    Get a box of 60 patches from Amazon for $9.95.

    20. Keurig cleaning cups, a must-have for anyone who is maybe just realizing now that they should have been cleaning their coffee maker for the past couple of years. 😬 This makes it so simple. Just put one of the pods in the machine, and you'll be amazed at how much gunk comes out of it. 🤮,

    Promising review: "This is an excellent product that I cannot say enough good things about. I had thrown away my current Keurig machine thinking it was broken. I decided to try to resurrect it using these cleaners and I am glad I did! One cup took care of years of neglect on my part (lesson learned). Because there was so much cleaning needed, I used two cups, and now the machine works perfectly. So glad I discovered this product and highly recommend it. I am thinking of a three-month interval to keep the machine in good condition. Thank you so much!" —Susan

    Promising review: "This is very easy to use and affordable. I was able to put on my lashes in no time. I can't believe I use to apply my lashes without this amazing tool.

This is the only product that made a difference right after I started using it. two to three days later my fingers were almost 100% healed. Wish I had tried this earlier." —MB_NYC

    Promising review: "I bought some adorable flats online for a great price. Boy, did they rub my heels raw the first time I wore them. I tried to break them in by stretching them, etc. still rubbed my heels raw. I thought I’d give these a go before giving up on the shoes altogether. Amazing! I wore my flats for several hours today. No pain. No raw skin." —Kip Karter

    27. A beaded face mask chain I can tell you firsthand is a great investment. I've been using this for the past six months to keep my mask close by (but not in my pocket) when not wearing it.

    Firefly Feeling Bright/Etsy

    I bought this chain months ago after I realized we'd be wearing masks for the foreseeable future. I wanted a way to hold my mask when I wasn't wearing it that wasn't stuffing it in my pocket. And this is perfect. It's super easy to clip on all the different masks I have, and I love that it's brightly colored. When I wear it around my neck, I hardly even notice it. Plus, it's a great price and even ships free!!

    BTW — Firefly Feeling Bright is a Florida-based Etsy shop established in 2019 that specializes in artisanal jewelry!

    Promising review: "Nice quality, good chain length and fun colors! Glad I purchased two (one for my home and one I keep in my car)." —dianecely

    PLUS: This also makes sure that your air-conditioning and heat doesn't escape under your doors, thus saving you energy and money!

    Promising review: "This product works really well! I needed a quick fix to my home office situation.

This little tape made a big difference, took me a couple of minutes to install." —Sandra Revueltas

    Athena Club

    Promising review: "I love these wipes! They are super gentle and provide a nice refresh without smelling super perfume-y. I’m someone who has very sensitive skin, and these wipes were very nonirritating. I would say using one wipe lasts me a few hours to most of the day, which is very good! I usually use one right out of the shower, and that seems to make the freshness and other benefits last even longer. Using these wipes after intimacy also helped with irritation and reduced risk of UTIs (I’m *super* prone to them)!" —MORGAN O.

    Get them from Athena Club for $9.

    30. A pack of cable savers to protect your charging cables from becoming frayed messes. With this small investment, you'll have no need to replace those expensive cords every few months.

    Promising review: "I’ve just had to replace a charging cable for my iPad. The wires broke within the insulation, within an inch of the connector/plug end. Then I found out about these spiral coil flexible silicone wire protectors. They keep the wire cable from being stressed from bending. I bought a bunch of these and have put them on both ends of every charging cable for every device, iPad, cellphone, etc that I own. I would recommend that you do so too!!!" —Richard Virchow

    Promising review: "I love these things. I have not tried other companies because these were the first of its kind I had tried, and they worked WAY BETTER than I expected them to. I've always struggled with acne, from teen to adult, and these get rid of my pimples in two to three nights. It's also very fun to see all the gunk it extracts from your pimple in the morning. It works the best if you open the pimple up slightly before putting on, even a little scratch of the surface to allow the pressure to release a little, smaller pimples will be pretty much flat the next day and larger ones be patient with! For anyone reading this, you can buy like little tools to help with opening your pimples, don't use your finger and don't pop it. But it will work wonders! I wish I could get bigger packs of these. I don't go more than one day without using these somewhere on my face!." —Olivia

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (available in pink and white).

    33. A door draft stopper reviewers swear is a great way to stop cold air from getting into your home during the winter months. Not only will you save money on your energy bill, but you'll also stop tiny critters from crawling their way into your home. And now that's a win-win.,

    Promising review: "These are a must-have! I couldn’t believe how easy these were to apply. The material is very easy to cut with normal scissors and I was able to lay it on the door cut the exact length apply and noticed an immediate difference! We bought these for two doors leaking cold air into the house but it also doubles to keep little bugs out! The material is very bendable which is nice if you open the door and it’s long it doesn’t damage anything — it’s very rubbery." —Lindsay (Thornburg) Perkins

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in four colors).

    Promising review: "All I can say is WOW! This worked better than I expected! I tried it out first on a stainless-steel travel mug that had about four years of coffee-staining in it. I had tried home remedies like citrus and salt and baking soda, but nothing seemed to change the stain. I soaked it for several hours with the tablet, and it required almost no scrubbing at all!! This stuff seriously works!!" —Sandy D.

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $8 (also available in a pack of 36).

    Plus, it's dishwasher safe!

    Promising review: "Life-changing little strainer!! Okay, maybe not life-changing, but this thing is awesome! I used to drain my canned tuna or chicken by just squishing the lid down and hoping I didn’t get squirted with stinky water, but now I place this thing in the can and gently press down to drain the water with the utmost confidence that I will not 1) get injured on the can, 2) get splashed with stink water, or 3) lose any tuna out the side. Ahh, it’s the little things. :)" —jaime138

    Get it from Amazon for $7.86 (available in two styles).

    36. A hair-finishing stick that looks like mascara but actually works to put all your baby hairs, flyaways, and broken hair into their place (i.e. on your head and not in whatever direction they feel like it).

    Promising review: "Oh. My. God. This stuff is incredible!!! It works better than expected! It’s so easy to put on, and it stays for over 24 hours! I love my ponytail so much more without the random flyaways that even hairspray couldn’t keep down. BUY THIS." —Alex

    37. Or an edge control gel reviewers swears stays in place all day *and* doesn't flake, so you can keep your edges and baby hair exactly where you want them.

    And just a note that you shouldn't feel pressured to lay your edges! For more on this, check out "Just A Friendly PSA That You Don't HAVE To Lay Your Edges Down If You Don't Wanna."

    Promising review: "So, I first found out about this product in my Cosmo school I attend and fell in love. It stays on just right for a long time, just as advertised! I had bought a different edge tamer and was disappointed, but this one exceeds my expectations, which is why I also purchased the largest tub size! <3 This is my fave edge tamer out there! A little goes a long way!" —Maria

    38. Sticky Stake insect traps you place in your plants to attract flies, gnats, midges, and other insects and keep them from flying around your house and annoying you so very much.,

    Promising review: "Holy cow these suckers work! I'm so grossed out by the result, but at the same time, I have a sick sense of satisfaction. I used these in my house plants that are breeding fungus gnats like crazy. I used them in conjunction with beneficial nematodes, and they definitely cut down on the number of gnats in our house. Unfortunately, I added a new houseplant, plus repotted one that had outgrown its prior home, and we are wrapped up in them again. I'm buying another package of sticky traps as soon as I finish this review!" —Megan

    39. A ring size adjuster one BuzzFeed editor swears by to get her rings to fit perfectly without visiting a jeweler to get them resized because her fingers are between sizes.

    Promising review: "This product was recommended to me by a jewelry store. I had a ring that was 1.5 sizes too large and after trying to re-size it at three different jewelers (who all told me the setting was too risky for resizing — risked losing the stones), I gave up. One recommended checking out this product and I'm so glad I did. It made the ring wearable for me, using the largest option, I was able to comfortably take it from a size 8 down to a 6.5. I've washed my hands and put the ring on/off with this on and it seems to stay in place fairly well. Was very easy to cut to size, I'm happy!" —KR

    40. A small diffuser you can hang from your rearview mirror and bring a nice scent back to your car after all the adventures you've taken it on that have brought many unwanted smells.

    BTW — This family-owned small biz has been creating candles, flameless fragrances, and more from Valparaiso, Indiana since 2017.

    Promising review: "I love these little car diffusers so much! They are cute and very fragrant. I got Winter Mint, Orange, and Connie Pine Cone. I may get some more for each of my girlfriends as a gift." —Allison Hutzell

    Get it from Amber and Wood Co on Etsy for $8 (available in 17 scents).

    41. A beauty spatula created to help you get every last drop out of your foundation bottle. You paid real Adult money to get the fancy brand that everyone on TikTok was raving about, so you best believe that you're going to get your money's worth.

    Promising review: "I used this spatula to entirely use up a glass jar of foundation. I got four full-face applications out of the remainder that wouldn't come out before. It's flexible to reach the corners and long enough to reach the bottom. Since I won't need it for foundation for a while, I may use it to more hygienically scoop moisturizer out of a jar instead of using my hands." —J. Fox

    Get it from Amazon for $5.49.

    42. A garlic prepping set because if you're like me and HATE mincing garlic with a burning passion (don't ask me why; I have no idea) then what you need to do instead of not cooking dinner is use the peeler and mincer to get perfect garlic in seconds.

    Just pop the individual clove in the tube, and roll it against the counter a few times for a quick peel. Then simply push the press down, and your perfectly minced pieces are ready to use! Ugh, I really should just add this to my cart rn.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this product! I like the size of the garlic chunks that you get with this masher, and I LOVE how easy it is to clean compared to other garlic mashers. I love that you don't need to use your fingers to peel the garlic. My mom has been cooking with garlic with every meal for 50+ years and wants one now too!!" —Ann M

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    43. A Diamond Dazzle Stik because you can only keep using the phrase "shine bright like a diamond" if your diamonds actually do shine bright. This small tool will transform your jewelry from cloudy and dirty to clean and clear in only a matter of minutes.,

    The "stik" has a brush and a twist-to dispense top. All you have to do is twist the pen to get the cleaning solution and use the brush to get rid of all the gunk in and around your ring.

    Promising review: "This got my ring so clean and shiny. It was way better than I expected. I went and ordered two more for Christmas gifts the day I got it! I have been digging through my jewelry box to find rings to clean with it lol. Exciting to see all the grime gone and the shiny beautiful rings back!" —lydia muller

    44. An ice cube tray with a lid so you don't have to play the game of "how can I stack my frozen food to keep the water in the tray from dumping everywhere?"

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE ice cubes in my drinks, and it's so annoying to have ice cube problems. I really researched ice cube trays and read a lot of reviews until I found these trays. It's so nice not to have to worry about spilling water just trying to get them in there. Also, they come out of the tray so easily! No more fighting to get the cubes out. These just kind of pop out when you press down on one side." —Kalisa

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    45. An acupressure wristband to help make nausea and motion or morning sickness disappear so you can go on with your day without feeling awful and fighting the urge to throw up.

    The band applies pressure on the P6 acupressure point that is said to help relieve nausea and vomiting.

    Promising review: "I'm pretty skeptical of this kind of thing because I thought it was a placebo...put on the wrist bands and all of the sudden you feel better because you think you should. I was completely wrong. I'm 7 weeks pregnant with two kids 4 and younger and the nausea was making it so hard to get through the day as a mom and I could barely get through coming dinner for my family. These take the edge off so I hardly feel it. I can tell they work because sometimes I'll accidentally push one of the wrist bands out of place and I'll know because the nausea comes back. These are amazing and so so worth it!!" —Amazon Customer

    46. A grout pen that'll transform your bathroom (or kitchen) floor from drab to fab by restoring it to the pristine color of yesteryear with minimal effort on your part.

    Promising review: "We moved into our new home, and the shower had a really yellow grout. Cleaning didn’t do anything, and I saw this grout pen online. What a saver! Otherwise, I would have just hired someone to replace my shower. I used this grout pen, and my husband was so impressed :D The tip loses its shape fast, but just pull out the TIP AND FLIPPED IT OVER, and you’ll have a new tip." —jennifer

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    47. A Tweexy specifically designed to make you say, "Why didn't I think of that?!?" when you use it to help make painting the nails on your non-dominant hand so much easier. It's time for that hand to NOT look like a 5-year-old painted it.

    Model&#x27;s hands with the Tweexy on the left hand. It has two rings and a holder on top with a bottle of nail polish in it to keep it steady. The right hand is holding the nail polish brush and painting the left hand&#x27;s nails

    Promising review: "OK, this is definitely one of those things that is so simple and when you get it, you say "well, why didn't I think of that?" It's super useful and fits my tall, thin bottles of gel polish great. I was concerned it wouldn't be snug enough for them because they are skinny but it still works wonderfully. Is comfy on my fat little fingers (ring size 9.5). Definitely recommended." —Mandi C

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 20 colors).

    48. Light dimming stickers to, once-and-for-all, put an end to that annoying light coming from your TV, Wi-Fi router, or whatever else you have in your room that keeps you up at night.

    You get a set of 100 stickers made to fit all sorts of electronics, so you can find the ones that will work perfectly for you.

    Promising review: "Ingenious little idea. I suffer from migraines, so I know how a little LED light can irritate you in an otherwise pitch black room. This product does a great job of dimming those harsh LED indicators that EVERYTHING seems to have nowadays. They are neat, not unsightly." —Jarom A. Daszko

    Get a pack of 100 from Amazon for $7.89.

    49. A garbage guard that may look small but has magic powers to get all the bugs in and around your garbage can good and gone from your life.

    Promising review: "Not sure how it works, but this simple thing eliminates all maggots from my trash can. I had to clean the garbage can each week and now... nothing but a couple of dead flies at the bottom. Some amazing witchcraft to be sure. It’s been a few weeks and still kicking." —CM
