    1. This (satisfying AF) fabric comb will remove the bobbles from your fave clothes in a few easy swipes.

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed

    Simply run it over your clothes and it'll pick up and remove bobbles as it goes along the fabric. I've used this on my most delicate clothes without any damage – it's completely reusable!

    Price: £1.98.

    2. If you love nail art but struggle to create fancy designs on your own talons, we have something in common. These cheap stickers gave me a pro finish in no time!

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed

    I placed these over my (completely dry) base coat, painted over them, left the varnish to dry, and then peeled the stickers off for a stunning result. There are so many designs to choose from in the pack that you're bound to find something you like! Just make sure to learn from my mistakes and wait for the top layer of polish to dry for a few minutes before removing these.

    Price: £2.99 for 24 sheets.

    3. I swear by this hyper-precise eyebrow pencil to get my brows looking good in no time!

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed

    It's got a brow-shaping spoolie on one end and a fine-tipped pencil at the other. Reviewers love how long-lasting it is, and I've found that it fills in the scar in my right eyebrow where other products struggle to do so!

    Price: £4.00.

    4. My flat has an ancient extractor fan that gets visibly greasy really quickly. This powerful degreaser spray made cleaning the panels WAY less daunting!

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed

    The product inside was powerful enough to remove oil from plastics and metals without any scrubbing on my behalf. Spray the formula onto the affected surface, let it sit for a couple of minutes, wipe it away, and you're done!

    Price: £1.00.

    5. I genuinely prefer this inexpensive heat protector spray to pricier alternatives.

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed

    If (like me) you've got long, fine, or unruly hair, it can be really hard to find a product that makes your tresses look truly smooth – so you can imagine how happy I was to find my ride-or-die solution for one Great British pound. Simply spray it onto your ends before heat-styling your hair for a glossy, smooth, and frizz-free finish!

    Price: £1.00.

    6. I got rid of the Dreaded Patch on my ceiling with this ridiculously highly-rated mould removal spray.

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed

    Leave this foaming spray on any affected areas for up to half an hour and then wipe it away to reveal a mildew-free surface underneath. I didn't need to scrub or even wipe too hard when removing the product – it came off (along with the mould) in a couple of easy swipes!

    Ptice: £5.00.

    7. Okay, so this is a little bit gross, but you know when limescale builds up in the base of your loo and no brush can clean it? Well, that's where this highly effective pumice stone comes in.

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed

    Our loo had some serious limescale buildup in its base that no amount of bleach or scrubbing could get rid of, and it was getting pretty disgusting. I eventually found out about pumice cleaning blocks online and nabbed this inexpensive one after reading its rave reviews! Just wet the stone, rub it over your grossest surfaces, and then rinse or wipe the dirt away – it's really easy to use, and it'll work on your ovens and barbecues too.

    Price: £2.40.

    8. Transform your extremely well-used cups with this deep-cleaning powder.

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed

    You know those cups you've abandoned in the back of the cupboard because their stains are so bad? Yeah, I had one of those and was about to throw it out before trying this powder as a last resort. I was amazed by the results – the product wears away the stains and marks from buildup without damaging the mug's surface underneath, and it doesn't leave a bad taste or odour behind either!

    Price: £5.48.

    9. Like most homes in the UK, my flat is in a hard water area. I avoid having to deep-clean the crust in my kettle by using this drop-in descaler ball instead! I just popped it in and continued to use the appliance as normal while it worked its magic (so low-hassle).

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed

    Mineral deposits will collect in between its mesh wires rather than building up in your kettle. I can remove and rinse it quickly and easily whenever I need to, which is much easier than cleaning built-up limescale from my most-used kitchen appliance!

    Price: £2.29.

    10. Of course, limescale doesn't only appear in my kettle – it shows up in loads of other water-heavy areas too. This incredible descaler spray transformed my shower head in no time, and it even removed buildup from the hardest-to-reach nooks and crannies.

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed

    Spray some of its enzyme-packed formula onto any affected surfaces and a thick foam will come out, which then works its limescale-destroying magic for five minutes at most. I was amazed by how quickly and effectively this stuff got to work!

    Price: £3.00.

    11. This Bar Keeper's Friend cleaning powder will make your grimiest kitchen utensils look as good as new again.

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed

    I'd nearly given up on this (frankly gross) baking tray and decided as a last resort to give this cleaning powder a go.. It was easy to use – I just placed it into the tin and scrubbed until the stains had gone before rinsing the grime away!

    Price: £2.50.

    12. You can finally hang up that picture you've had lying around your home for ages with these self-adhesive Command strips.

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed

    Peel the back off of these adhesive strips, apply them to your wall, and attach the frame or fabric to get that task ticked off of your to-do list! I was impressed by how much weight these bad boys can bear – a pair of these hooks will hold up to 5.4kg.

    Price: £3.00 for four pairs.

    13. My flat's grouting has gotten fairly grubby over time, and scrubbing in between the tiles doesn't always solve the problem. This simple pen is a low-effort solution – I liked how smoothly the product went onto my walls!

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed

    Run its nib along any discoloured grouting for an instant colour refresh! The formula is antifungal, helping to prevent the new coating from getting covered in mould.

    Price: £4.22.

    14. The Pink Stuff paste is a cult-status product for a reason – it'll clean everything from metal to tiles! I was amazed by how quickly and effectively it got rid of the hard-to-budge rust under my shower.

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed

    It's made up of gritty cleaning beads suspended in a gel, so it grinds away at tough stains without scratching up whatever's underneath. It's suitable for use on most hard surfaces (think ceramic tiles, barbecues, pots and pans, and more!)

    Price: £3.26.

    15. Looking for a low-hassle way to keep your sink's water flowing freely? These drain sticks keep my plugholes clean on a day-to-day basis.

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed

    They're packed full of enzymes that break down the gunk and grease in your drains as they dissolve. All you'll have to do is put 'em in and leave them to get to work!

    Price: £5.00 for 12.

    16. Define and lengthen your lashes with the help of this mascara from Rimmel.

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed

    Its dense brush distributes the inky black formula over every single one of my lashes, including the tiny ones at the edge. This mascara will last for up to 24 hours!

    Price: £3.98.

    17. This avocado cushion is just straight-up adorable.

    Mariah Jean Baptiste / BuzzFeed

    I gifted this to my work pal Mariah, who said (and I quote) 'It's really fluffy, and it has no right to look as cute as it does TBH.'

    Price: £4.36 for a 20cm cushion.

    18. Conceal AND heal your spots with these hydrocolloid patches!

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed

    I applied one of these on top of my spot and overnight it began drawing the excess moisture and gunk out from my skin, helping to dry out (and eventually eradicate) the zit.

    Price: £5.99 for 24 patches.

    19. This Pure Clay Glow Scrub from L'Oréal contains red algae and a skin-clearing combo of three clays.

    Amy Glover / BuzzFeed

    It contains exfoliating beads to help decongest your pores, and its cleansing formula won't dry out your face! I've found that this product has helped to clear up my skin, and it feels really refreshing to use.

    Price: £4.35.
