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 hydrocolloid acne-absorbing patch to suck out all the pus and gunk from breakouts overnight. It'll do the work while you sleep, so you can wake up to smaller, healed pimples instead of angry monsters.

    These patches are super effective and will make your morning routine of fussing over breakouts so much smoother. You can apply the patch directly to the pimple before you go to bed and remove it in the morning. What's gross is that you can really see the pus and gunk on the patch when you remove it, so maybe don't look too closely if you want to keep your breakfast down.

    Promising review: "These saved my skin. They take out all the gunk, leaving your pores looking refined with whiteheads gone. You wake up, pull them off, and there's everything there on the patch. I've never been so pleasantly surprised by a product. They actually are the answer to whiteheads and clogged pores. They bring out the stuff you see and don't see under the skin. They clear up the stubborn area I have so easily." —SamMan

    Get 36 patches from Amazon for $12.50+ (available in two styles and as larger packs).

    2. A felt purse insert that'll finally bring some order to the black hole that is your bag. Deep-diving every single time only to pull out the wrong item is way too annoying. It has 13 pockets total with a zippered middle pocket that can be removed.

    Raise your hand if you've spent wayyyy too much time looking for your house keys or Chapstick, only to have to dump out the entire contents of your bag in the process. Before you order, measure the inside of your bag to get the best fit!

    Promising review: "This thing is great! I have a large bag I use as a carry-on when I fly by plane. Unfortunately it has very few pockets and is just like a bottomless pit. This fit in perfectly. I was able to organize all my items quite well. They were easy to retrieve in flight and in the airport. I didn't use the zipper compartment at all, but did put that piece in to use it as a divider. It is well-made and sturdy. Be sure to measure your inner bag space first!" —Susan

    Get it from Amazon for $19.88+ (available in five sizes and 13 colors).

    3. Liquid ant baits to exterminate pesky ants that always seem to raid your home come summertime. You can place them anywhere around your home, plus they'll remain fresh until opened. Once it's filled, just trash and repeat if necessary!

    Promising review: "With the onset of really hot weather, the ants decided to try my kitchen as a refreshment counter. Having used several other products only to have the ants return, I was dreading the idea and expense of hiring professional pest control for occasional but virulent ant attacks. Then I saw this product on Amazon and decided to give it a try. If I hadn't used it myself, I wouldn't believe it. I put out the bait in the afternoon and the ants were dead and disappearing in less than 24 hours. Since the old trap had dead ants in it, it didn't look very appetizing in the kitchen so I replaced it with a new one. NO MORE ANTS!!! This product is wonderful and cost-effective. I have several more unused ant traps just waiting for the little buggers to strike again!" —Pamela K. Buck

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $8.98+ (also available as a 16-pack).

    4. A spice shelf that'll hold up to 40 pounds, transforming your current collection so you can actually find what you're searching for. No more fumbling mid-recipe!

    The shelves are stackable and come with different sized legs for short or tall spice bottles.

    Promising review: "Product is perfect for what I need it to do. Fits just right, is more than sturdy enough, and has made my absolutely nightmarish spice cabinet look awesome. No more duplicate spices going bad in the back of the cabinet! It’s not at all difficult to assemble. Watch the assembly videos (they’re short) before you start opening the parts bags. Otherwise it’s easy to get intimidated by all of the extra pieces." —Congaree

    Get them from Amazon for $27.99 (for two shelves).

    5. A bakeware rack to provide a home for all your tins and pans that are currently residing in your oven. Seven dividers are included, but are totally adjustable based upon your needs.

    Promising review: "I love this thing. I was able to store my all my bakeware and cutting boards. I was pleasantly surprised to have more then enough space to add my kids' trays and square plates. I used to have a lot of these items stacked on top of each other, which was bulky. This thing is such a time saver and it looks nice on the eyes. I placed this in an upper shelf so I don't have to bend over to get the things I need." —J.R.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    6. An expandable shelf that'll organize that black hole under your sink where things just pile up with zero order. This is a great solution for cleaning supplies!

    Promising review: "If you're like me, you have a cluttered mess under the kitchen sink (and probably bathroom, too). I could never easily find the thing I was looking for, especially if it's something I don't use often and it gets buried in the back. This rack makes use of all of that empty vertical space and now I can easily see and access the stuff I need. I put it together in less than five minutes and it's adjustable to fit pretty much any configuration. I'm getting one for every under-sink cabinet in the house." —Rebecca Lynn Black

    Get it from Amazon for $20.87 (available in two finishes).

    7. Bottle Bright cleaning tablets so you can successfully clean your coffee-stained thermos without having to get your entire arm wet in the process of trying to reach all the nooks and crannies. They work so well, you'll have a spotless container in no time.

    I just bought these because my water bottle was so foggy and gross. I filled it with warm water, dropped in a tablet, and waited 10-15 minutes. When I rinsed it out, it was clean! I was so thankful because there's no graceful way for me to get all the way to the bottom of the bottle with a sponge. Plus the tablets are chlorine-free and environmentally safe! They work on stainless steel bottles, plastic, glass, porcelain, and silicone.

    Promising review: "I wasn't sure if this was a gimmick or not. Turns out it works really well. I have four metal thermos-like containers that are used to keep tea warm every day. Over time, the tea stained the insides and was very difficult to remove. I added one of these tablets to the container, filled it with hot water, and let it sit for a few hours. When I came back to rinse it out, I was literally amazed at how clean it was. I think it looked cleaner than when it was new. I called my wife over to show her, and she was equally impressed. Awesome product!" —Robert A Moreno II

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

    8. A bottle of Bar Keeper's Friend that'll literally tackle any type of grime. It can remove tarnish, lime buildup, rust, caked-on food, and so much more.

    This stuff can be used in the bathroom, the kitchen, and on multiple things outdoors, so consider it super versatile. The scrubbing cloths it comes with are non-scratch and won't hold odors like most sponges.

    Promising review: "I have cleaned this tub several times per week for over a year with no real results. What kills me is it is a BRAND NEW tub. Last year we redid the downstairs bathroom. The contractor’s workers had cement, grout, dirt, etc. on this brand new tub and it is one of those delicate surfaces where you can’t even use a bath mat in order not to damage it. My husband did his best to get most of it out and it was pretty good compared to what it was before. But it still attracted stains that regular cleaners couldn’t remove. Even with the slight damage caused from before, I think the difference is remarkable. I’ve seen people posting about Bar Keepers Friend for stainless steel pots and delicate tubs for years. It’s true. It works." —N.B.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in larger packs and with detail brushes).

    And check out our full review of Bar Keeper's Friend.

    9. A handheld steamer to remove wrinkles within minutes so you never again show up to work looking like a mess. It's gentle on fabric, won't spit water all over the place, and heats up super quickly. Trust me, you'll be so thankful for this thing when you're running late.

    Promising review: "I have never successfully ironed anything in my life! I have only attempted to iron something once so I constantly live in wrinkled clothes....or I did. Now with this amazing steamer I don't have to worry about that anymore, and it's so quick and easy to use! Fill with water, warm, and point at clothes that need some work done. It's so quick too that I am able to use it quick before leaving for work. Plug it in, and it instantly begins to heat the water. And then it takes only moments to steam out the wrinkles. It also comes with a travel bag! So glad I bought this!! Now I will look way more put together!" —Sarah Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $20.97.

    10. A concentrated mold and mildew remover that'll instantly banish gross buildup in your bathroom from all that extra moisture in the air. It'll leave surfaces sparkling clean without the need for extensive scrubbing.

    The gel will cling to whatever surface you apply it to, working its magic while you sit and wait. All you have to do is wash it away after a while.

    Promising review: "Easy to apply. No scrubbing. Mold was gone in a few hours. The directions say to use rubber gloves. I didn’t and my hands smelled like bleach for few hours, so be advised. This beats the heck out of anything I’ve ever tried to take mold off of grout. Very much worth the price. The bottle is small, so I bought two." —Darbelob

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    11. A folding board to maximize the amount of space in your closet by neatly folding and storing all of your winter clothes. If you fold correctly, you can essentially triple the amount of clothing you can fit into one drawer.

    Promising review: "My husband can not stop folding t-shirts! He looks forward to doing laundry now. It's a great product and so easy to store and use!" —Krista

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99 (available in five colors).

    12. And a pack of space-saving, vacuum-sealed bags that'll decrease the original volume of things by 80% so you can store a ton of large items like sweaters, throws, and duvets come summertime.

    These bags are super sterile, so you don't have to worry about mold or mildew building up inside. They're also a great alternative for seasonal clothing, and come with a travel pump to remove air.

    Promising review: "THESE ARE LIFE CHANGING. They even give you a hand pump to use in case you're taking the bags camping or just don't have a vacuum handy. I tested the pump to see how well it works, and it worked perfectly! Works just as well as a vacuum, just takes a little more effort pumping out the air. Using these bags, I have half my closet back! I used three bags to store ALL THE items in my closet including three large pillows and several thick blankets and comforters. I will most definitely be buying more; these are fantastic!!!" —Knastay

    Get five bags from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in four sizes and in packs).

    And check our review of the vacuum-sealed bags, too!

    13. A multi-surface, natural enzyme pet stain and odor remover, because sometimes your pets have a little (annoying) accident. This spray will lift stains so you don't have to feel self-conscious about any urine smells when guests are over.

    Promising review: "The dog LOVES to pee on any new carpets I get; he marks it and then it's a permanent smell no matter what we do. We tried no less than three different kinds of pet odor/cleaner sprays that didn't touch the smell. I even used a carpet shampooer and shampooed it three times and it STILL smelled like dog pee. This product was going to be a last-ditch effort before I got a new area rug and wow!! No more smell! I am super impressed and more than a little relieved that I don't have to spend big money on another carpet. I have read some of the reviews that the smell of the spray is overpowering, but I thought it was very minimal and pleasant." —Nate

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97+ (available in two sizes and two scents).

    14. A portable fabric defuzzer that'll breath life into your wardrobe. You've got some staple pieces, which means you want those pieces to last! There's no better way to refresh a sweater than with some super satisfying defuzzing.

    Promising review: "So I didn't think it through when I threw some dark shirts and sweaters in the wash with a couple of light towels. They came out with all those fuzzies. I ordered one of these based on the price and average customer review, and I can see why this was rated so high. Takes two AA batteries and is very comfortable to hold. Since it's so portable, I just sat on the couch and shaved two shirts and a pair of cottony exercise pants while watching TV. I probably would have never worn these items (at least not outside the house!) again if it wasn't for this great little gadget." —Paula Nelson

    Get it from Amazon for $11+ (available in eight colors).

    15. An all-natural leather cleaner and conditioner, because by now you've put your bags and wallets through years of wear and tear. It'll restore leather to its original silky feel and look, plus it won't leave behind a greasy residue.

    Promising review: "I've used this on all of my favorite shoes and boots. Then I used it on my purse. It's enjoyable seeing how much improvement you can see on beat-up leather. The scent is what sold me on this product. I loved that it was an almond scent. But the results are so much better. It took about two minutes to clean them up. Highly recommended. Also their customer service is top-notch." —RileyD

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95+ (available in two sizes).

    16. A natural wart remover so you can safely and painlessly remove warts on your body. With daily application, reviewers saw results in two weeks.

    Promising review: "Amazing product! After the pediatrician told me there was no treatment for my son, and to just let the virus work it's course, I ordered this product out of desperation. It only took one week of treatment to heal his warts. I am so thankful for this product!" —Gisela Ingle

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    17. Dr. Tung's tongue cleaner that'll help rid of nasty breath so you don't have to ferociously chew gum before a big meeting. Or panic when you realize you finished that pack of mints you keep in your desk drawer.

    The curved stainless steel edge is smooth against your tongue, removing bacteria without causing irritation.

    Promising review: "Besides its obvious purpose, this item is really fun to use! I also like the consequences; I get to see the 'stuff' on the metal piece when I scrape it which tells me I'm taking crap off my tongue. And then my tongue also feels scraped, which makes me feel like I did something more than just some kind of toothpaste or mouthwash to generally keep my mouth clean (which hasn't worked before). I think the feeling of having done something specific to keep your mouth clean is an important aspect of having confidence in your breath. After having bad breath for a while, no matter whether my mouth is clean or not, I shy away from talking directly at people. But this helps remove some of my doubts and act like a normal human being again."Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $6.77.

    18. An incredibly effective, fume-free oven cleaner to cut through baked-on spills and grease so you don't shock guests the next time you open the oven during a dinner party.

    Promising review: "Simply UNBELIEVABLE. Fume-free and no gloves needed, but dissolves ANYTHING cooked on! I had not cleaned my oven EVER. I simply sprayed it on, shut the door overnight, and wiped it off with paper towels. Now I don't have to dread cleaning the oven ever again! I can use this for everyday spot cleaning. I also used this on a broiler pan that would not scrub clean, even with steel wool. My Crock-Pot recipe leaked over the bowl and burned on inside heating chamber; I just sprayed, covered, wiped in morning. I plan on using this to clean the grill in the spring and I'm sure it will be a breeze.” —Andrew J.

    Get it from Amazon for $5.97.

    19. A pet hair remover that'll make having your cat and/or dog on your bed or sofa way less worrisome. All you've got to do is roll the brush forward and backwards to pick up stray hair and lint.

    Everything gets collected in the compartment in the back, so empty it out once you're finished cleaning.

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my crazy cat-loving life? Sticky rollers work fine for clothes but this is the only product that has ever COMPLETELY removed all the cat hair from my bed. I have a long-haired 20-pound tabby and if you run your hands up his back a few times and fling the hair everywhere, it looks like it's snowing — he never stops shedding no matter what I do. This roller is absolutely amazing. Everyone is getting one for Christmas, even if they don't have a pet. I don't care, it's THAT good." —Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    20. A pumice stone, because rust, lime, and hard water stains can majorly affect the appearance of your toilet bowl. The stone is gently abrasive to scrub away stains without scratching.

    Promising review: "This thing is a straight up miracle. I've had brownish hard water rings around the inside (water level) of my toilets for decades. Nothing worked. Finally it a fit of disgust I ordered the Pumie. I wish I could go back in time and tell myself to get this long ago. The stains are gone for the first time in forever. It didn't scratch the toilet bowl as far as I can see. If you've got hard water stains, don't worry about chemicals...just get this thing and in about ten minutes you will be as delighted as I am, and not embarrassed to have people in your bathroom anymore." —JS

    Get it from Amazon for $11.10 (available in packs).

    21. A car scratch remover that'll buff out surface scrapes that would otherwise cost you big bucks at a repair shop. Now where was this when you were in high school and just learning to drive...?

    Promising review: "This was the first time I had ever attempted a project like this and I was able to get great results without any special tools. I just used the polishing pad included, a microfiber towel and some high grit sand paper for the tougher spots. Everything worked out well. I finished the job with Turtle Wax polish. The pictures speak for themselves. This stuff works!" —TEXAS95

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    22. A stovetop cleaner so you can erase the remnants of the last meal you mightttt have burned (by accident, of course). It'll work on gas and electric ranges, and it's non-abrasive.

    The cleaner comes with sponges for cleaning, but some reviewers reported scratching, so to err on the side of caution, I recommend using a microfiber cloth.

    Promising review: "We have just finished a long, significant remodel of our house, touching every room. We bought a brand new range and after cooking on it a few times, there was residue that I just could not get off. With the surface being slightly delicate, I was scared to use anything abrasive! I bought this hoping it would be gentle enough, but effective and this did not disappoint! Just a few swipes with the included pads lifted all stubborn stains effortlessly! I will be an eternal customer." —Workaholic

    Get it from Amazon for $15.97.

    23. A makeup brush cleaner that'll suction to your sink so you can wash every brush in just a matter of seconds. Let's be real – your brushes are probably currently caked with makeup and haven't been properly rinsed in ages.

    This is a two-piece set! You get one larger suction pad and one smaller that also fits securley in your hand.

    Promising review: "This mat is amazing. I took it for a spin today and was very happy with the results. I usually have to put in quite a bit of elbow grease to clean my foundation brushes, but this made the process super easy and much faster than usual. The suction cups kept it steady in my sink. And the shipping was pretty quick. All in all, I love it!" —Quianna M.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in five colors).

    24. A microplane foot file so you can save *hundreds* of dollars on pedicures and callus removers. It'll work on dry or wet skin and can greatly improve the appearance of cracked, peeling feet.

    Nothing makes you feel better than clean and smooth feet, amiright?!?!?

    Promising review: "This transformation took less than five minutes for each foot! If you're looking to make your feet look like feet again, then don't even look at a single other product. At this price point, it can't be beaten either. This thing gave me immediate results. I am a barefoot runner and weightlifter, and the accumulation of 21+ years of callouses are now eliminated." —Jacob

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

    25. And a powerful wheel cleaner made with an acid-free and pH balanced formula that'll rid of grease, dirt, and grime for shiny, flaunt-worthy rims.

    Promising review: "It will take one look from your friends to say. 'Did you buy some new wheels?' This stuff is absolutely amazing. For the full effect, dismount your wheel, spray the back. Go do something for 10 minutes. Wash with water, no scrubbing needed. Turn the rim face up, do it again. Do the rest of your rims, and don't forget the tire protectant when you reinstall them. This stuff will handle salt, road tar, off-road dirt and mud; you get it dirty, it comes clean. Where was this stuff when I was racing off-road?" —johnfcon

    Get it from Amazon for $21.02+ (available in three sizes and in packs).

    26. A non-toxic jewelry cleaning solution to make your diamonds sparkle like they just came out of the box. To dip your pieces in the solution, you'll receive a mini basket and brush for deep cleaning.

    Like other cleaning solutions, this one shouldn't be used on pearls!

    Promising review: "The jar arrives well-sealed and full, so you will want to place it on a dish or ceramic bowl to catch spills, AND open it very slowly. Peel off the entire seal. If you don't do this you may have trouble closing the jar later. I used Brilliant Jewelry Cleaner to clean my silver engagement ring with its three diamonds, as well as my white gold wedding ring. I left them in the basket for three minutes, took them out, brushed them a bit, and rinsed them in hot water. They look gorgeous!" —HOPE46

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95.

    27. A set of apple cider vinegar shampoo and coconut + avocado oil conditioner that'll rid your hair of dandruff and reduce itchy scalps. Oh, it'll also help remove build-up from styling products, leaving your hair healthier.

    Promising review: "I really was hesitant to try this, but I decided I would take the plunge anyways. I have to say after using it for a few weeks now I'm pleasantly surprised! My hair is so soft, shiny and lightweight! I love how bouncy it is after using this, plus it smells amazing. Not vinegar-y at all. My daughter has been using this as well for her oily hair and dandruff (after trying tons of super expensive salon products), and so far this is the only thing that has been working for her! Her dandruff is gone and her hair is noticeable less oily by the end of the day. We will definitely be buying more." —kindlemom1

    Get the set from Amazon for $29.94.

    28. And a purple shampoo for those who want to maintain their icy blonde locks they paid big bucks for. It'll help tone down the yellow hues without having to constantly bleach it (or go back to the salon for multiple touch-ups).

    Promising review: "I recently went from dark brown to ultra-blonde hair and was recommended this shampoo. I was told by my stylist a purple shampoo would be needed to keep the blonde from getting brassy, and that other purple shampoos were not only pricey, but mediocre. The purple pigment in this is amazing, and unlike other products that I'd let sit in my hair forever, this is so pigmented that if left for too long, hair will get a temporary purple tint! I am absolutely in love with not only the price of this product, but I love how it truly delivers and makes my blonde hair gorgeous!" —LB

    Get it from Amazon for $12.49+ (available in three sizes and also as a mask).

    29. A bottle of La Roche-Posay salicylic acid cleanser to get rid of excess oil and fight any and every type of breakout you may experience (whiteheads and blackheads included).

    This gel can be used twice a day and is said to decrease surface oil by over 40%.

    Promising review: "I've tried many, many face washes for blemish prone skin in my lifetime and this is one of my favorites. It's very mild, lathers beautifully, and leaves your face feeling extremely clean without being tight or stripped of moisture. There was a noticeable difference in the clearness of my skin within the first week of use! I like to wipe my makeup off with a microfiber cloth first, then wash my face with this cleanser to get off the first layer of makeup and gunk. I have many problems with my skin, and this seems to really work for me in terms of gently yet effectively controlling oiliness, acne, and blackheads specifically." —Shoko

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    30. A bottle of Feed-N-Wax wood polish so you can get rid of water marks on your tables, freshen up your cabinets, and revive your floors. It'll polish and shine, adding a protective layer to the wood so future stains won't penetrate and cause dryness or fading.

    Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn-out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs who had jumped up and scratched places, and we also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were and several other areas that were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magic eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemishes. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let is sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand new. We're so glad we found this product." —Kris

    Price: $8.48+ (also available in packs).

    31. A Woolite carpet and upholstery brush that'll target stains, banish odors, and reach deep down into fibers. The bonus? You don't even need to use separate solution. Everything you need is included in the can.

    Promising review: "This product is my saving grace. I have two young kids, a dog, and an affinity for light gray couches and rugs. Those things do not work well together in the normal world, but these cans have saved my life. One of my kids even got Behr PAINT from our drying fireplace on the couch, and the Woolite cleaner took that off, too! It’s absolutely incredible. Food, marker, pens, snot, name it. I will forever be indebted." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $22.69 (for a pack of four).
