    This baby will save you from getting down on your hands and knees to scrub down your toilet bowl because it does the work with every flush. Using it is simple: load the gel cartridge into the stamper and click the button to apply the gel sticker to your toilet bowl. It's actually really satisfying to use and I'm happy to report it works, too! It keeps my toilet smelling fresh and saves me from having to scrub away gross build-up on the bowl, meaning I have one less chore to do every week. Each pack comes with 24 stamps and each stamp lasts about 12 days.

    "I then tried them on another three-year-old pair of flats that had not been smelling the best since, well, three years ago. After one day, it no longer smelled like anything. And keep in mind that I’m using the same pair of bags back to back! The product description says the bags are reusable for up to two years; you simply air them out in the sun to rejuvenate 'em once in a while. I’ve been using the same pair now for six months, and they’re still highly effective." —Yi Yang (read her whole review here).

    "My bathroom sink tends to stop up far too easily and this does a drastically better job of clearing the gunk than other brands. I also love that it's noncorrosive (I live in a pre-war apartment building with old pipes) and odourless (no one loves feeling like a bug being fumigated in their own home)!" —Elizabeth Lilly

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $19.99.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    "I have one of these and it's super simple to use, even if you don't have a green thumb. Just drop the included plant pods, fill it with water, plug it in, and let it get down to business. It only took a few weeks for my lettuce and basil to be harvestable and now, after a couple months of patience, my tomatoes are starting to bloom. I love it because a) it makes me feel like a successful gardener b) thanks to the reservoir, my plants won't die if I forget to water them for weeks, and c) now I have fresh herbs at my disposal at all times." —Alice Prendergast

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $259.99. Available in three colours and in a smaller size. It comes with three basil plant pods, three tomato plant pods, and three lettuce plant pods, but you can purchase different varieties, too.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    I love my plants, but sometimes I'm not the best mom to them. I forget to feed them on occasion and these little spikes give them a boost when I've been a neglectful plant parent. Using them is simple: Just dig a hole with the plastic tool, shove in a plant spike, cover it with soil, and let it work its magic.

    Get a pack of 48 spikes on Amazon Canada for $16.32.

    22. A bottle of fresh-scented dry shampoo if you've skipped washing your hair all week and it's greasier than an oil spill. Reviewers say it's also great for adding volume to limp locks, so you can use it for styling, too.
