Just 38 Ingenious Products That Weren't On Shark Tank, But Might As Well Have Been

Including earrings that keep your AirPods right where they belong — in your ears.

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 pack of slow cooker liners if you love yourself a one-pot meal but don't love having to scrape away baked-on food when you're finished.

Walmart

PS: They also come in handy with dishes going into a water bath (think: cheesecakes, custards, and puddings). 

Promising review: "These bags are so wonderful. They are thick enough to deal with a few scrapings with spoon while stirring. And the cleanup takes seconds instead of an hour of soaking and five more minutes of cleaning. Very impressed with this project." —Taoswaan

Get a pack of six from Amazon for $3.18 or a pack of eight from Walmart for $4.24. 

2. A champagne stopper for those days when you're hanging out solo but would like a glass or two of bubbly. This way, you never have to waste a bottle or wait until you have company!

Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed, Amazon

You can even mark the date you opened it on the top of the stopper!

BuzzFeed editor Maitland Quitmeyer has firsthand experience saving her bubbly. In her own words:

"I love bubbles — champs, cava, prosecco, sparkling rosé — they just know how to bring the party! But no one likes when sparkling wine goes flat, or you feel like you can't just have one or two glasses without ruining the whole bottle. So I went on Amazon and found the best champagne stopper I could find and immediately hit 'add to cart.' What a great purchase! This little bb is so easy to use — just pop it on top of the bottle, push the metal sides in so it clamps on, then push the top button several times to vacuum seal and preserve the bubs. Then when you next want a glass, spritz, or mimosa, you'll hear that same *POP* you heard when first taking out the cork — and the effervescence you so crave will be fully intact. Plus, you can confidently store your leftover bottle on its side in your fridge; I've had zero leakage problems with this thus far!"

3. A pair of escape tracks you'd be smart to keep in your trunk so you never get stuck in the snow or sand again.

Amazon

Promising review: "These traction pads are amazing! I travel off-road constantly and slick mud is everywhere. I have used these more than a dozen times in the last three to four months and every time I can attribute my escape to these. The bright orange makes them easy to see after digging them into the mud, and the knobs are durable enough to withstand a very large truck's beating. I would buy another set of these in a heartbeat! For the price, the quality, the durability, and the hundreds of uses, you CANNOT go wrong with these. If I could give them 6 stars I would." —Arianna

Get them from Amazon for $129.99+ (available in three colors and four styles).

4. A pack of lobe support patches if you're a fan of statement earrings but aren't looking to give yourself gauges with extended wear.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "Amazing. 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

5. An inflatable airplane bed for kids that not only gives them a place to peacefully nap, but prevents toys and snacks from going here, there, and everywhere.

Flyaway Designs

The bed — which comes from the small, woman-run biz Flyaway Designs — comes in a portable bag and a pump is included. It takes only 90 seconds to inflate and even less to deflate! And — an important note from the manufacturer — "It meets the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA’s) strict guidelines for inflight comfort devices."

Promising review: "This bed proved to be everything stated in the description. We flew premium economy on a 17-hour flight from SFO to SIN and this product provided a sturdy, flat bed for our toddler across the entire pitch from our seat to the next. It was his first flight ever and he slept comfortably about 10 hours or so (on the return trip as well). The product is also super easy / quick to inflate and deflate. Would highly recommend it." —Sunil N.

Get it from Flyaway Designs for $159.

6. A magnetic algae scraper you can use between deep cleans of your aquarium when you want to clear out stubborn stains and fish goo.

amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: "Nice and small for our minnow tank. We have some stubborn algae spots that just grasp on the plastic and don’t budge unless I take a nylon pot scraper to it...but that requires emptying the whole tank and 'I ain’t got time fo dat' so little circular motions and this busted right through without getting my hand wet. It’s just scratchy hook-and-loop and it does the job. No scratching of the plastic. And no residue on the outside. I just park it in the corner behind a plant and give it a wipe every few days." —BreezyBreeMurphy33

Get it from Amazon for $12.76.

7. A pair of straight-up *genius* AirPod earrings — your choice of zip-tie style posts or chained pearl posts — if you're the type who gets nervous about losing an earbud when you're out and about. (It's me — I'm that type. Have I ever lost an AirPod to the subway tracks? No. Do I still live in fear of it happening? Yes.)

Apex Studio SH / Etsy, Ming Liu HK / Etsy

Both earrings come from small businesses. The first is courtesy of Shanghai-based Apex Studio SH while the latter is from Ming Liu HK.

Promising review (for the zip-tie style): "I love them! So unique. The delivery is so fast. Will definitely come back soon!" —Michi

Get them both from Etsy; the first from Apex Studio SH for $15.99 (originally $19.99; available in three finishes) and the second from Ming Liu HK for $10.90.

8. A French press tumbler for the caffeine aficionado who's always running behind. With this insulated mug, you can brew your coffee or tea right from the car, office, or even Target parking lot.

Amazon

The portable coffee maker is super simple to use. Just add ground coffee and hot water to the outer tumbler, wait three minutes, and then insert the inner press and push down like you would a normal French press. A built-in micro filter traps your grounds at the bottom of the cup so you won't suck up any bitter bits.

Promising review: "I was given this mug as a gift and I use it daily. It's the best thing since sliced bread. It's easy to use, cleans up in a second, is well insulated, and makes a great cup of coffee (actually two cups). I recently returned from an extended stay in Guatemala. My favorite things I had while there were my hiking boots and this press. Every morning fresh brewed Guatemalan coffee. Buy this for yourself, and as gifts. Yours friends will love you forever no matter what you do to them in the future :)" —U Know Who

Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in five colors).

9. A canvas cup holder made to cuddle your iced coffee on your walk back from Starbucks. If you drink iced bevvies year-round (sorry, but it's the only way to go), it'll keep your fingers from freezing.

Dreamy Daisy / Etsy

Dreamy Daisy is a small accessory shop based in Washington, DC. Check them out for handmade canvas backpacks, spa headbands, scrunchies, and more.

Promising review: "The product is super cute and fits cups perfectly!!! I bought this for my coworkers and now I need to order one for myself." —Wendy

10. A pair of leak-proof period leggings so you don't have to worry about stains or rogue pads whether you're working out or perfecting your couch potato form.

Ruby Love

Ruby Love is a Black woman-founded apparel company from Crystal Etienne. All of the brand's bodysuits, underwear, leggings, and sleep shorts feature patent-pending technology that protects against leaks and stains. Their leggings can be worn with or without a pad as they can collect up to 2.5 tampons' worth of your flow.

Get them from Ruby Love for $49.99 (available in sizes XS–3XL and Juniors).

11. A subtle, Bluetooth-compatible safety bracelet that will give you peace of mind no matter where you are or what time it is. Plus, it just looks like a normal ol' cuff.

Flare

Flare is a woman-founded brand from Sara de Zarraga and Quinn Fitzgerald. The two met at Harvard Business School and are very open about Flare having been inspired by their surviving sexual assault. In emergency situations, the innovative cuff can send a text (like the one above), receive a fake call, and even send your GPS location to 911. Depending on how often it's used, the bracelet's battery can last up to two years.

Promising review: "I am so impressed!! The phone call options are so natural and believable, and the ability to customize the name of both the Flare 'caller' and 'texter' is ingenious. I did a couple of test calls and texts, and they worked perfectly. Thanks again for all the time, effort, and thought that obviously went into the creation of this beautiful safety piece. I am so impressed!!" —Alexandra

Get it from Flare for $98 (available in three styles, four finishes, and three metal colors).

12. A two-pack of handheld bag sealers you can use to cut and seal a variety of snack bags so your treats don't go stale. (I personally can't not finish an entire bag of Jax Cheese Curls in one sitting, so I don't need this, but power to those who have the strength to save some!)

amazon.com, amazon.com

The portable sealers heat up on contact so there's no downtime before use. They also come with batteries so you can use them right away!

Promising review: "I couldn't wait to see if these really worked. As soon as I received them I went to work sealing bags of opened chip bags. They worked! No more stale chips. They have a built in magnet, so I can keep them handy on the fridge. I am really impressed with them. No waiting time, no buttons to mess with. Just slide the protective cover away to expose the roller and run it across what you want to seal. Easy!" —Monica

Get them from Amazon for $15.27.

13. A necklace layering clasp that will eliminate your need for 20 extra minutes every morning just to sort out your accessories. With the Necklet, you just attach your three necklaces of choice, and then let the magnetic clasp work it's magic. Plus, you don't have to worry about tangles!

amazon.com

Necklet was founded by Ricki Hansen, a digital marketer based in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The company is now run by Hansen and her sister Stacie, a fashion blogger and graphic designer, and is part of Amazon's Launchpad program.

Promising review: "I’ve tried the off-brand cheap ones and I can honestly say this is so worth the price. I wear multiple necklaces all the time, some very heavy necklaces at that and the cheap ones were causing the magnets to separate and fall off my neck. This one is by far the best! The design is smart and foolproof. The magnet is VERY strong, much stronger than the cheap replicas. There’s even a little click mechanism that secures the magnet in place. I’m sold and definitely happy I splurged for this over the cheap ones.... beyond worth the price."Cecelia

Get it from Amazon for $42 (available in three finishes).

14. A trusty pair of inclusively shaded opaque tights you can slip on under skirts and dresses (heck — even distressed denim) on days when the windchill is notttttt playing.

Nude Barre

Nude Barre is a woman-owned small biz from Erin Carpenter. Her specialty line of underwear and hosiery has set out to revolutionize the term "nude" with 12 inclusive shades that speak to all skin tones — including those that are most often underrepresented.

I am a lover of tights — v controversial take, I know — but I *am* picky when it comes to material/fit and I think these babies are keepers. I just wore them to our holiday party and they didn't roll, pinch, slip, stretch out, or rip after hours of eating/drinking/watching a table-side magic show/finally meeting my coworkers in person 🙃 (#PandemicHire). Some tights are too thick and wear more like leggings which I am not a fan of but these are comfortably thin (they're 85% nylon and 15% spandex) while still being surprisingly durable. I have really long nails right now and didn't get any tears or runs pulling them on or off so thus far they're winners!

Promising review: "Color is true to my skin tone, and super comfy. I'm an Asian American with tanner skin (bronze-y and honey undertone), so 10 AM is a perfect match! The quality is impeccable, so soft and smooth, they glide on smoothly. This is definitely a great wardrobe essential everyone needs." —Anonymous

Get them from Nude Barre for $22 (available in sizes S/M–4XL/5XL and in 13 shades).

15. Or a pair of Thunda Thighs — stockings that were tailored with full-figured thighs in mind — that'll keep your calves, shins, and knees nice and toasty without the need for tights.

Kayla Boyd / BuzzFeed, Thunda Thighs

Thunda Thighs is a Toronto-based small biz that specializes in thigh-high socks for plus-size legs! Their designs fit thighs 27–39 inches and won't cut off your blood circulation.

BuzzFeed editor Kayla Boyd (pictured above!) has them and loves them saying:

"When you have thick calfs and thighs, it can feel almost impossible to find thigh-high or even knee-high socks or shoes that fit well. I've always loved the thigh-high look, but failed to find cute socks that worked for me. That's why I was super exited to try Thunda Thighs... and they did not disappoint! The material is very thick and warm and they actually fit comfortably! When I have them pulled all the way up over my knees they can roll a bit at the top as I move around, but the brand even sells body adhesive to help with that. I love wearing them around the house, especially during the winter. I seriously need to buy more colors!"

Get them from Thunda Thighs (directly from their site or from their Etsy shop) for $26.50+ (available in 34 colors/designs).

16. A self-cleaning Litter-Robot which not only saves you from scooping poop, but gives you an excuse to send Star Wars-themed Snapchats of your cat.

CloseClose
Litter-Robot

The Wi-Fi-enabled box self cleans, reduces litter usage up to 50%, manages odors with a carbon-filtered waste drawer, and settings can be controlled via an app on your smartphone. You can lock the buttons on the actual box so your cat doesn't mess with them; you can set a 3-, 7-, or 15-minute delay before the unit cycles (after your cat has used the box); and it'll notify you when the waste drawer needs to be manually emptied. Otherwise, just set it and forget it.

Promising review: "Hands-down best money I’ve ever spent. Less kitty litter used, no more scooping, happy kitty because her litter is always clean, no more doggie curiosity. Best invention for cat parents. My only caveat was I bought compostable trash bags to use when my original supply of Kitty Robot liners ran out. My 'hack' is that I put the entire bin inside a compostable trash bag and slide the edges of the bag under the clips near the air vent. Then, slide whole bin back in place carefully. Once it’s time to empty it, I just pull the bag and toss. Voila!" —Julieana T.

Get it from Litter-Robot for $549 (available in two colors).

17. An adjustable workstation bike if you prefer to get 💰paid💰 while burning calories. Prop your laptop up on the desk, maybe even turn on some Netflix in the background, and go ahead and start spinning.

The quiet and compact stationary bike weighs just 51 pounds and is easy to move around thanks to four wheels. The desktop also has ample room for not only your laptop, but a drink, notebook, or whatever else you need close at hand.

Promising review: "This is the tool of 2020! Zoom meeting? No problem — pedal away! Teleworking? No worries about your cardio! I’ve been struggling to balance a new baby, running a business remotely and getting exercise — until now! This bike is a lifesaver. The desk and seat are fully adjustable and it comes fully assembled (other then having to put in the desk). It rolls easily and stores small. I can’t recommend highly enough!" —Angela P

Get it from Amazon for $319.99+ (available in two configurations and colors).

18. A dress weight so you can avoid a Marilyn Monroe moment when a gust of wind tries to take your skirt for a spin. I've lived in NYC long enough to have had this experience (damn you giant SoHo grates!) and let me say I desperately wish I had these on hand.

Etsy

The adhesive weights come in a pack of four and each weighs 0.5 ounces or — what Etsy seller Christina, of DressStrong, equates them to — 13 jelly beans. To use, just peel the label from the weight and stick it the hem of your dress or skirt. When you're done for the day, you simply peel it off and store it. When stored properly, you should get at least six uses out of each.

Promising review: "Such a great product, kept my lightweight summer dress down during friend's outdoor wedding. They are the perfect weight — heavy enough to keep your skirt down when it's very windy, but not too heavy that they pull it in an awkward way. They're also absolutely invisible and stayed on the whole time. PS: Fast shipping and a cute handwritten note from a seller, just great." —Marina

Get it from DressStrong on Etsy for $15 (available in individual or bulk quantities).

19. A pair of 'no splash' (LOL) nail clippers with a handy dandy reservoir so you don't have to go on an I Spy-style hunt for nail clippings after your at-home mani pedi.

Amazon

The clippers have a file on the bottom and also come in a really nice case!

Promising review: "Best nail clipper I've ever owned. All my life I've had stainless steel nail clippers that slip from my fingers whenever I have to cut my nails, which bends the nail and adds pressure onto my nail bed. With these clippers, the groove lets my thumb sit comfortably. It cuts very well, and there's no need to put too much pressure when cutting a tough nail. The nail catcher is a good bonus. It prevents your nail debris from flying all over the place so you don't need to hover over the trash can. I use the built-in nail file to shape those sharp edges and it does the job very well. It eliminates the use of switching over to an individual nail file. I also like the little case that it comes in. It keeps me from losing my nail clippers." —Jasmine

Get them from Amazon for $12.99.

20. A chic Modern Picnic lunch bag that ~looks~ like a designer purse from the outside but operates like a cooler on the inside with insulated walls that keep your snacky snacks nice and chilled. 

Modern Picnic is a woman-owned small biz from Ali Kaminetsky.  I have the brand's Luncher in green faux croc and no one believes me when I say it's a lunchbox! It's just the right size for a small meal/smattering of snacks as it can fit a sandwich and side salad or a few hard seltzers, cheese, crackers, hummus, and veggies. I like that there are built-in slots for my utensils so they don't get lost in the bottom of the bag and the whole thing is rather rigid so if you're carrying something heavy like a drink, it won't drag down the whole bottom. 

Promising review: "To everyone out there — you NEED this!! You can use this chic classy tote for: lunch for work, snacks for kids, breastmilk transport from work, IVF injectables (so you can actually leave your house and not carry a cooler). I could go on and on! I want one for every season!! Thank you for making my life classier. The Luncher just makes me smile with all the possibilities it can be used for." —Heather

Get it from Modern Picnic for $149 (currently available in in nine colors/styles).

21. A gamified core trainer so you don't have to go outside to get in a sweat sesh, but do get to pretend you're soaring through space or hang-gliding over a distant countryside.

Amazon

Place your phone in the designated spot, choose your preferred game (four are included in the Stealth Fitness app), and then prop your arms on the padded surface. Planking for three minutes is never any fun but this helps you forget what you're doing as you tilt and twist your way through challenges.

Promising review: "This thing is NO JOKE. My fist round I only made it 44 seconds. I already feel my core more than I do on 'ab day.' If anyone is on the fence about this product I highly recommend it." —Nathaniel J.

Get it from Amazon for $169.

22. Or a set of slightly weighted Ripstix that allow you to follow along to a Pound workout or just reenact that scene in Freaks and Geeks where Nick (Jason Segel) kills the drum solo from Rush's Spirit Of The Radio.

Amazon

The durable plastic sticks weigh a quarter of a pound each and are meant to accompany drum-inspired Pound workouts.

Promising review: "Awesome fitness companion! These have been useful during quarantine by watching the Pound classes on YouTube! Can’t wait until I can take a class in person. If you love music and want to get in some cardio this is the class for you! Classes are around 30 minutes and the music is upbeat and the choreography changes so you won’t be bored! These drumsticks are weighted. And the weight is enough with repetition to give you a nice burn!" —Bee

Get them from Amazon for $21.99.

23. An adjustable cap with a magnetic closure meant to work *with* instead of *against* your ponytails and buns. This way, you don't have to spend 10 minutes adjusting buckles or straps and trying not to pull out any hair in the process.

Ponyback

Ponyback is a small biz from Stacey Keller. When she couldn't find a hat that worked well with all hairstyles, she set out to make her own.

Promising review: "I can't believe how perfect this hat is — I wear my long curly hair up 90% of the time and this works for ponytails, messy buns, braids, or any combo. It's SO comfy I don't even realize I am wearing it until my kids say to me 'no hats at the table' haha. This hat will be my summer lifesaver." —Nancy K.

Get it from Ponyback for $49.99 (available in youth sizes, adult sizes XS/S–L/XL, and in nine colors).

24. A HyperChiller beverage cooler that allows you to turn hot coffee into iced coffee in 60 seconds flat. Just make a promise with yourself — that you'll fill the container with water and keep it in your freezer so it's always ready when you need it.

Amazon

The dishwasher-safe container can also be used to cool chill tea, juice, wine, or whatever else you feel like drinking. No water comes into contact with your beverage, so you don't have to worry about dilution, either.

Promising review: "I am an avid (i.e. daily) iced coffee drinker, but I have been extremely hesitant to make my own iced coffee at home because I didn’t want the bitter flavor from two-day old coffee or the watered-down nature of just adding ice to coffee. Thanks to the HyperChiller, I have now found a solution!!! The HyperChiller worked like a CHARM today!!! I was able to create my own iced coffee directly from my coffee maker in the comfort of my own home. I guarantee this item will be used frequently! Great job!" —Chelsea

Get it from Amazon $24.02+ (available in six colors).

25. A trampoline sprinkler because last time you checked, Blizzard Beach tickets are wayyyy out of your budget and this baby is less than $30. Who know's what's in that water anyways...

Amazon

Promising review: "This is awesome!!! Before we found this, the kids were using the hose to stay cool on the trampoline. The hose always turned into a fight - who got to hold it, someone getting sprayed in the face, etc. Now the kids can stay cool and fight about other things! Absolutely recommend this product as it was super easy to set up and makes for a fun way to cool down in the Arizona heat!" —Groveland

Get it from Amazon $26.49.

26. A set of TikTok-famous storage scrunchies so you can keep your cash money, lip balm, keys, and other small accessories nice and accessible while you're at the gym, running a quick errand, or otherwise avoiding having to carry a purse. 

See them in action on TikTok here

Promising review: "LIFE-CHANGER. I don't have to bring my whole purse with me anymore. This fits so much more than expected and the colors are perfect. The blue especially is beautiful. Good quality." —Tia

Get a pack of three from Amazon for $11.99 (available in two color combinations).

27. A biodegradeable bacon sponge on which you can drain grease from fried foods because you could not only clog your *own* drain if you dispose of it improperly, but your whole neighborhood sewer line as well.

Amazon Handmade

FYI: The towel absorbs 10 (!) times it's weight in grease and absorbs liquids 20 times faster than other fabrics. Plus, it comes from a woman-owned small businesses based in Denver, Colorado. 

Promising review: "This is great. I don’t like using loads of paper towels in draining meat, but I didn’t know what else to use. The bacon sponge is absorbent and easy to clean. It performs as advertised and makes me feel better about eliminating another source of waste." —PamelaRenee

Get it from Green City Living on Amazon Handmade for $13.50.

28. An all-in-one measuring cup that not only frees up space in your cupboard, but saves you from having to do any tricky fraction or decimal conversions. Look, for a long time, I only had a 2/3-cup measuring cup and my English major self was in a *world* of hurt.

Amazon

It's dishwasher- and microwave-safe. Measurements include: 1 cup, ½ cup, 1/3 cup, ¼ cup, 2 tbsp, 1 tbsp, ½ tbp, 1 tsp, ½ tsp, ¼ tsp, 120 ml, 80 ml, 60 ml, 30 ml, 15 ml, 7.5 ml, 5 ml, 2.5 ml, 1.25 ml.

Promising review: "First of all, I gotta say I don’t cook much and if there’s something I hate after cooking is having to wash all the bunch of utensils I have to use once I use them. This cube has been amazing, I don’t have to wash a million utensils over and over, it’s very easy to use, easy to clean and it’s very handy to use for when I’m meal prepping for the week. I bought this out of curiosity and ended up enjoying it a lot. If a regular guy like me is enjoying it, I’m sure it would be a great tool for people who cooks or bakes in a regular basis." —Daniel Matajira

29. An Alleyoop Pen Pal which is ‼️ four ‼️ products in one and packed into a super nostalgic applicator that resembles a Bic ballpoint. The tiny but mighty gadget has everything you need to touch up your eyes, lips, brows, and high points so you can carry just a quarter of what you'd normally need to get the job done.

Jasmin Sandal / BuzzFeed, Alleyoop

My BuzzFeed shopping colleague Jasmin Sandal has this and loves it. She says:

"I didn't realize I'd ever use a makeup product in my 20s that had the ability to transport me back to something I used in sixth grade, but here we are; and here I am using a multitool pen... for my face. I gotta say, I love the concept of the Pen Pal from Alleyoop! After using all of the functions (eyeliner, highlighter, lip liner, eyebrow pencil) and as someone who LOVES makeup but was applying as little as humanly possible during lockdown, I think it’s a great tool for anyone looking to streamline their routine. It's ideal to use for touch-ups come the end of the work day, or a subtle, minimalist way to apply makeup in the a.m. The brow pencil is particularly soft and pigmented, and filled in my eyebrows quickly. I just adore the ease of application of each product, and appreciate the universal, does-it-all-for-you concept. Plus, it saves me so much room in my already overflowing makeup bag!"

Promising review: "Such a time saver to have this 4-in-1 tool! I use it daily and love that it is so compact." —Lauren F.

30. A set of silicone stove-counter gap covers so you won't attract unwanted critters after flinging pasta into the half-inch crevice for the third time this week. We all know nobody is actually cleaning it out (don't try to lie to us), so go ahead and do yourself a favor.

amazon.com

The covers just slip right into the gap — there's no adhesive involved — so you can easily remove and clean them whenever necessary.

Promising review: "I've been using these for about a week on my new freestanding range. When they removed my old range, I was really surprised to see how much stuff had slipped through! Now when I cook, I can see the splatters and seasonings left on the silicone that would have fallen between the stove and the counter. These gap fillers really do clean up easily, too. Although they are that extra thing to clean, I prefer that to knowing there's a mess hiding in the cracks." —JMom

31. A set of bedsheet holders that are basically like suspenders for your mattress, because nothing ruins a morning like having the corner of your fitted sheet pop off as you roll over.

amazon.com, Amazon

Each pack comes with four bands which can stretch from 12 to 18 inches and hold adequate tension.

Promising review: "Say goodbye to rearranging your fitted sheet every morning! My boyfriend sleeps like he’s rolling down a hill, so every morning I would wake up to the scratchy feel of my mattress cover because my soft silk fitted sheet was all over the place. Thanks to these Bed Bands, our sheets stay put no matter what. The only way for your fitted sheet to come off is if you manually remove these first. I wish I would have bought this so much sooner." —Khalysee

Amazon

Promising review: "Our family is growing, and I realized there's a lot of space in a closet that isn't being used. That's how I came across these, and now I have them in all the closets. They make getting clothes so easy, and now we have more space for the growing family! XOXO!" —Megan

Get it from The Roll Keeper on Etsy for $16.99 or from Amazon Handmade for $12.59+ (available in two sizes and colors).

35. A Dyson-compatible brush attachment you can pop on the end of your vacuum to give your pup a salonworthy grooming right at home.

What's included: Combing tool attachment and an adapter to expand compatibility (it works with the Dyson V6 through V11).

Promising review: "I could not write a better review for a better product — this thing is absolutely amazing. We have two German shepherds, a husky mix , and a a long-haired mini Aussie. I was skeptical about how well this would work because I bought other vacuum attachments in the past, but this thing blew my expectations out of the water. It’s absolutely amazing, even with just a light brushing on our dogs it removed more than an entire canister of hair." —Shiane cleland

36. A set of cart trolley dividing bags so you can organize your groceries as you go and not have to bob between putting things in the fridge/freezer/pantry once you get home — just put everything away bag by bag!

amazon.com, amazon.com

Each bag holds up to 50 pounds and has an extra pocket.

Promising review: "This is exactly what I've been looking for. It fits all the shopping carts and you can detach them and take only one to tow all of the bags if you are shopping for smaller quantities. I've been using these for a few days now and I love it. I used to have a bunch of different bags in my trunk and it was very messy. With Lotus Bags, I can finally get rid of all the other bags and have these sitting nice and pretty in the trunk. The cooler bag is especially awesome to keep the items cool while shopping to transporting them home. The bags look very well made and sturdy." —JJ

Get them from Amazon for $49.99 (available in two colors).

37. A touchless vacuum you can sweep debris right into. No more song and dance with your dust pan trying to brush up every last speck of dust.

Amazon

Promising review: "Housework has a lot to teach about physics, math, and philosophy. There is no greater reminder of the Sisyphean fight against entropy than household chores, and Zeno's paradox is exemplified by the little line of dirt left behind by the dustpan, reducing in magnitude by half each time you try to sweep it up, and yet you can never make it go away. The existential crisis I have every time I clean my house has been alleviated by the EyeVac. Just sweep the undesirable atoms (cat hair and litter) into the sensor zone of the vacuum, and like an event horizon, the dirt disappears, sucked into the black hole of the EyeVac. Highly recommended." —Joy

Get it from Amazon for $114 (available in six colors).

38. And a set of adjustable mug organizers so you can confidently open your cupboard knowing an avalanche of mugs isn't about to fall on you. 

Amazon

Psst — if you want to see them in action, check out this viral TikTok of the mug organizers that's clocked millions of views. 

Promising review: "I love these cup organizers. I have a small cabinet above where my coffeepot is and these have made it a pleasure to open that cabinet. All cups are organized and easy to get to. They stay right where they should be. No more stacking them inside one another and them falling over when I opened the cabinet. I also use these for some bowls in my dish set. Works great. I just order a couple more and I am going to use them for my china cabinet. I wondered when I first bought them because the price was a little high. Worth every penny and more. I can not say enough good about these." —ChefGirl

Get a set of six (to organize 12 mugs) from Amazon for $24.99 (available in three colors).
