    1. On paper, mould remover spray doesn't sound that exciting. But when you're old enough to have to take care of your own walls? Yup, it begins to seem pretty magical.

    Amazon / Via

    You'll just have to spray this stuff on any gross patches you've got on your walls or ceilings, leave it for a few minutes, and wipe it off to reveal the clean surfaces underneath (can you imagine anything more satisfying?). Reviewers rave about how effective this stuff is!

    Filled with dirt-busting enzymes that break apart grease and gunk, these low-key genius sticks dissolve slowly in your drain, helping to remove the bad stuff from your drain as they do. They'll leave you with fresher-smelling drains that are less likely to become blocked (honestly, the dream)!

    5. And speaking of slightly gross problems you have to deal with now, this Bin Buddy powder will help to get rid of the bin juice in your liners (yup).

    Amazon / Via

    Look, everyone's bins get gross sometimes, and having to deal with all that ickiness is never fun. This genius powder acts kind of like a kitty litter in your bin bags, absorbing the excess liquid from your bins and helping to prevent that heartbreaking moment of lifting your bin bag out of the bin to realise that it's leaving a manky, stinky trail behind it (noooo). It contains citronella which will not only make your bin smell better, it can help to repel flies too!

    Price: £3.49.

    6. This descaler will get rid of mineral buildup from your kettle in minutes, because we're frankly too old to be dealing with limescale-filled cuppas.

    Amazon / Via

This set of 32 hexagons is perfect for storing everything from belts to socks in the most organised way possible.

    Price: £8.95 for 32.

    8. If you're trying to stay hydrated, this Brita filtering jug could help (because realistically, who amongst us isn't trying to drink more water?).

    Amazon / Via

    The carbon pearls in this filter will help to get rid of chlorine and other impurities from your tap water, so reaching your hydration goals (yes, we all have those now) will be easier and tastier. It can hold a generous 2.5 litres too!

    Price: £14.

    9. Electric toothbrushes are incredible and you can't tell me otherwise. This highly-reviewed sonic one can be charged via USB, perfect if you haven't got a razor socket!

    Amazon / Via

    Brushing your teeth is probably one of the most satisfying parts of the day (don't come for me), and it's made even better with one of these bad boys. It's got four removable heads and comes with five different speeds and patterns that'll really help you get into your brushing sessions! Just one four-hour charge of this toothbrush can last you up to 30 days(!) too.

Like the sonic toothbrush, this one is also USB-chargeable, and you can get up to a fortnight's use from one four-hour charge!

    Price: £29.99.

    11. It is simply not an option to have messed-up sheets when you're old enough to actually need your sleep. These clip-on sheet fasteners can help to keep your bedding in place, even if you toss and turn around a lot at night (probably having a nightmare about responsibilites TBH).

    Amazon / Via

    They've got secure clips that attach very firmly to your bed sheets, and the elastic strap they're on will fit a variety of bed shapes and sizes. The pack of four means there's one for every corner (hello, crumple-free bedding).

    Price: £4.35 for four.

    12. If you've ever experienced cleaning out an oven, you'll probably want to put off scrubbing it again for as long as possible. These Teflon oven mats will protect the base of your cooker, and you can just take them out again when they get grimy!

    They can withstand temperatures of up to 260°C, and when they're looking a bit gross, you can just remove them from the oven and wash them with washing-up liquid, like you would with a plate.

    Price: £6.99 for two.

    13. Now that you're old enough to store your clothes in a wardrobe rather than just leaving them strewn all across your room, these smart hangers could be really helpful!

    Amazon / Via

    You can store up to five items of clothing using the rail space of just one hanger with these (low-key genius) tools, and because of their drop-down effect, you'll be able to see exactly which clothes you have to hand. Organised and efficient? Music to an adult's ears TBH.

    Price: £7.99 for ten.

    14. Something happens to people after a certain age that makes tea towels just seem... *chef's kiss*. I don't know how or why, but I do know that these waffle-weave (and extra-thick) towels are some of the best.

    Amazon / Via

    Made from machine-washable and highly absorbent microfibre, these tea towels look and feel good! Plus, the pack of 12 means you'll always have one handy, even when the others are in the wash.

    Price: £19.99 for 12.

    15. You probably know better than to leave your makeup on before you go to bed by now. These handy cloths will get rid of your cosmetics in one swipe (including waterproof mascara)!

    Amazon / Via

    You can help out the environment and your skin with these machine-washable reusable cloths, which get rid of your makeup using only water! Because these cloths come in packs of two, you'll be able to have one to hand when the other is in the wash or drying. You'll save loads on micellar water and endless cotton rounds, too (because saving money is probably the most exciting thing that can happen when you're an adult).

    Price: £9.99 for two.

    16. Do you have time to rummage around in your makeup bag for that one eyeliner you always use? Because if the answer is no (it's probably no), this drawstring bag could help.

    Amazon / Via

    You'll be able to see all of your products at once when you open this bag, so you won't have to spend any of your precious time in the morning looking for that one specific brow pencil. It's available in a variety of fun designs, too!

    Price: £5.99.

    17. If you're sick of coming home to find out your charger has been left on all day for no reason (which, same), these timer sockets can help to lower your electricity bill and your guilt.

    Amazon / Via

    You can program them to switch on and off whenever you like, so if you want to make absolutely sure your charger and your straighteners are off when you leave the house (who doesn't), they can be seriously useful.

    Price: £10.99 for two.

    18. I mean, just look at this cutlery organiser. The functionality. The grace. The storage-saving design. The tilted drawers. Incredible work.

    Amazon / Via

    I refuse to feel ashamed for loving this Joseph Joseph drawer that's basically art, which takes up about a third of the space of regular cutlery drawers and has tilted compartments that make your knives and forks incredibly easy to reach. It's space-saving, smartly-designed, and also kind of sophisticated!

    Price: £9.59.

    19. It's time to talk food storage, folks. These glass containers with clip-on lids are really long-lasting!

    Amazon / Via

    Dishwasher-safe and eco-friendly, these reusable glass boxes will help you store your leftovers in a really hassle-free and sturdy way. Plus, the glass won't get stained by tomato juice (the ruin of plastic containers), and because it's transparent, you'll be able to see exactly what's in there.

    Price: £20.99 for seven containers.

    20. If you're enough of an adult to know what hard water is, you're probably going to be excited by this ionic shower head that makes your water softer.

    Amazon / Via

    It's filled with ionised beads that draw limescale and other minerals from your water, leaving you with softer water that will help you get the most out of your shampoo. It'll help to increase your water pressure too (water pressure becomes extremely important once you've left your teens), making this product pretty much a winner. Plus, it's incredibly easy to install – just screw it onto your existing shower hose!

    Price: £17.

    21. Good hand creams are actually really important, and this one from O'Keeffe's is one of the best.

    Amazon / Via

    It contains allantoin, which keeps the moisture that's already in your skin exactly where it should be and creates a barrier that stops factors like pollutants drying out your skin. The formula is nourishing but lightweight, and it sinks into your skin quickly without leaving a greasy finish (yesss). Just a little bit of this product goes a long way – I've had a tub on my desk for months now, and even though I use the stuff daily, I haven't actually made that much of a dent in my supply.

    Price: £7.99.

    22. Watering your plants regularly is a real marker of adulthood, but finding a pair of globes that water them for you is next-level mature.

    Amazon / Via

    These super-smart globes are actually incredibly useful. The soil under your plants releases oxygen when water leaves it, which then enters these globes, causing them to release the perfect amount of water proportional to the moisture that's left your soil. Genius, right?

    Price: £6.99 for two.

    23. In colder, wetter climates, humidity can be a real problem that seriously disrupts your home. This inexpensive dehumidifier works without batteries or electricity!

    Amazon / Via

    It contains a filter which absorbs the excess moisture from your air, pooling it all into a tray at the base of this unit that you can remove for easy emptying. You'll be less likely to get mould with this thing, and your air will probably be nicer to breathe too!

    Price: £7.98.

    24. Hot take – oven gloves are way better than tea towels for removing trays from the oven. These silicone ones are particularly highly-rated with a 4.7-star average rating!

    Amazon / Via

    Made from a combination of silicone and cotton that can withstand temperatures of up to 250°C, this handy pair is as great-looking as it is functional. It's slip-proof too, so you'll be less likely to drop your dinner, and the quilted design improves insulation.

    Price: £10.99.

    25. Descaling your taps is important, but it's also really hard to find a way to keep your taps submerged in the cleansing liquid. This handy gadget solves that problem!

    Amazon / Via

    Limescale 1) clogs up your taps, making them harder to use, and 2) looks awful while it's doing it. Trouble is, it's really hard to soak the ends of your taps in descaler for a long period of time (unless, of course, you're using this add-on!). It secures to your taps really firmly, so you won't have to worry about it falling off. I mean, is there anything better than sparkling taps?

    Price: £4.50.

    26. This copper tongue scraper will help to make your mouth feel really and truly clean.

    Amazon / Via

    While brushing and flossing do a lot for your oral hygiene, most people forget that the tongue actually harbours loads of (slightly icky) bacteria. This naturally anti-microbial copper tongue scraper will help to clean your tongue easily and effectively! Plus, it comes with a handy pouch for easy and hygienic storage.

    Price: £5.75.

    27. And last but most definitely not least, this fabric shaver from Philips will help to bring your fave clothes back to their former glory.

    Amazon / Via

    It's got an adjustable mesh shield that you can lower or heighten according to how close you want to get to the material, so you can get rid of the pilling on your clothes without damaging the fabric itself. All of the bobbles this tool removes collect in a compartment in its handle that opens easily for simple disposal. We say yes, please.

    Price: £9.99.
