1. A wood-cleaning polish to make your dull and cracked hardwood floors shiny again. A protective coating of beeswax, carnauba wax, and orange oil minimizes fading, conditions dry spots, and brings wood surfaces back to their former glory.

amazon.com

Reviewers have also used this polish on other wood surfaces, including kitchen cabinets, dining tables, and antique furniture!

Promising review: "This product is worth every penny and goes a very long way. We had tired oak floors that haven’t been refinished in over 50 years. They were dried out and washed out. This product took away decades in an hour with a few rags and a lot of elbow grease. One word of caution: Floors are very slippery for a few days after use. Be very careful walking around. As a bonus, it smells amazing. It has a natural orange peel smell that is fresh and clean and not at all harsh or chemical. Highly, highly recommend." —GMD

Promising review: "This is the most natural-looking eyebrow pencil I have ever used, and I've used a lot of them. It doesn't look splotchy or go on unevenly, and with one stroke of the spoolie on the end, just looks like a natural eyebrow. My new go-to pencil. The consistency goes on with light touches, just the way it's supposed to, and it fills is light spots without clinging too much to the hair itself. Makes for an even-looking brow." —David

I did this alone with no help and I’m pretty proud of the outcome. Took me about 30 min to complete it. I used the whole roll of the smallest option and it was enough for me. Super awesome and will be buying more of this contact paper soon when I transform another room in my home! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!" —Mariah

Amazon, amazon.com

This patch kit will save you so much time when it comes to repairs because it doesn't require any vinyl spackling!

Promising review: "I was initially a little concerned at the size of the tube once received but it ended up being more than needed. I used this to fill in two large large bolt holes from a TV I previously had mounted on the wall and four decent-sized holes from a sound bar that was mounted below it. Application was extremely easy. I waited about 45 minutes and applied a coat of paint, and by the next morning you could not even tell the holes were ever there. Highly recommended." —Steelstorm

9. A foot file that'll get to work on your crusty heels when you don't have time for a pedicure appointment. This cheese grater–like tool will gently remove dry skin, so you can get baby-soft feet.

amazon.com, amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "After comparing foot files and reading the reviews, I decided to order this foot file. Living with chronic pain conditions has made it almost impossible to get out and go to the nail salon on a regular basis. I needed a way that I could 'maintain' my feet in between pedicure appointments, and purchasing this foot file was definitely a great decision. I couldn't believe how well and easily it removed the dead skin from the bottom of my feet. The only other product that I used was a tiny amount of callus remover to help remove the unwanted dry skin. I couldn't believe how well it worked and my feet felt so much better. I would highly recommend using caution when it comes to the amount of skin that you slough off. Otherwise, you could remove too many layers of skin, leaving your feet sensitive to touch or painful when walking on them. If you are looking for a way to maintain your feet on your own then look no further! The price is competitive, the quality is top notch, and it couldn't be any easier to use." —Amy

10. A snout soother stick for your doggo's chapped nose. This vegan balm contains hempseed oil, grapeseed oil, jojoba oil, and vitamin E that help heal crusty and dry spots. Rub onto their snout two to three times a day for some relief.

amazon.com

Promising review: "Well, I have never before been so shocked at the effectiveness of a product. Our 5-year-old Frenchie, Carol, had a nose that was so crusty, it was sprouting these long strands of more crust. There was literally crust on crust on crust. The nose had strings of crust. This nose was so crusty and repulsive, it was almost beautiful. Her nose might have resembled the rarest, most exotic geode to be mined from the rarest mine in Guatemala. A friend recommended this snout soother for Carol's repulsive nose. I was worried she would just lick it all off and it wouldn't work. We never imagined she could have a regular, soft, moist nose again. Honestly, this product is some black magic stuff! Unbelievable results in three to five days. No one paid me to write this." —Brittany

amazon.com

Promising review: "I never write reviews, but this stuff is a miracle so I had to. Stop debating which wart removal product you want to buy and get this now. I've tried everything, including having my warts frozen off at the doctor, and not even that did the trick. This stuff did. My warts were extremely large and stubborn, but I was persistent with the gel every day for about six weeks, and they're almost gone. It's absolutely amazing." —Maria Efting

14. Mighty Patches to absorb all the yucky gunk in your pimples while you sleep. When you wake up, you'll feel really satisfied when you see one of these babies lift pus from your zit that's basically the size of Mars.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "If you have issues with acne (especially those nasty whiteheads) but can't afford all the fancy step-by-step treatments out there, you at least need to buy these. This truly worked at minimizing my pimples, sucking up the wound and keeping big pimples from getting worse. It really does draw up the pus to the patch! I leave one on overnight and just slowly peel it off and then wipe away any remaining pus. I even let my mom, who was visiting, try it on her pimple and she loved them, so I had to order more!" —Megan Meehan

15. A Wet & Forget shower cleaner that (gasp) you can literally leave and clean later. Instead of bending over a tub and scrubbing for eternity, all you have to do is apply to the grimy area, go do something more enjoyable, and rinse it away the next day.

amazon.com

Promising review: "Long story short, the tub in my kids' bathroom was atrocious, due to spotty cleaning and hard water. I bought this with a heavy dose of skepticism, even though the reviews were mighty impressive. On the back of the bottle, it says that you may need several daily applications before your tub is clean, and then you can switch to weekly application. I'm on day three, and let me say, even if this stuff worked no further, I AM BLOWN AWAY. The shower looks close to new. A couple more days, and I'll be able to switch to weekly! I won't post pictures because I'm embarrassed of how bad it looked before. But seriously, I am SO happy to have discovered this product, and I plan to keep on using it." —Tee

Ribbon Storage / Etsy

Ribbon Storage is a small business run by Danielle Laver, who makes cool storage solutions for crafting supplies.

Promising review: "These spools are amazing! I had three HUGE bins full of ribbon I've managed to reduce down to two small bins. I've wrapped all my lace, ribbon, and string. And even put small fabric scraps on the larger ones to save space. They work wonderfully! I loved these so much I purchased a second order. I will state that with them wrapped like this, they will have more of a bend in the fabric than if they were on the spools, but I've tested it and it's easily removed with a hot iron. Also, the seller shipped super fast and they were packaged well!" —Hazel Godwin

Promising review: "Holy cow these suckers work! I'm so grossed out by the result, but at the same time, I have a sick sense of satisfaction. I used these in my house plants that are breeding fungus gnats like crazy. I used them in conjunction with beneficial nematodes, and they definitely cut down on the number of gnats in our house. I'm buying another package of sticky traps as soon as I finish this review!" —Megan

Not only is it a treat for my Sami but it removes a lot of fur and her coat is shiny, smooth, and soft, which is a plus for me, and no fur is on the floor or couch. This is a great price and a must-buy." —Cody Blackwolf

21. Drawer organizers because all your bras, socks, and underwear are always in a messy pile. These compartmentalized organizers will keep your drawers tidy, so you don't have to conduct a search party for your missing thong again.

amazon.com

Each set comes with four bins: a six-cell (for scarves, hankies, and ties), an eight-cell (for undies), a seven-cell (for bras), and a 24-cell (for socks). All the cells are collapsable and fold flat, too, if you want to put them away!

Promising review: "No matter how neatly I fold my bras and underwear, they always seem to become a big jumble in the drawer. These organizers are perfect for keeping everything in place, and you won't forget about those items you own that end up buried at the back." —M. Hanson

22. Or a set of honeycomb dividers if you have really small drawers that are always filled to the brim. These dividers easily snap together, fit in almost any dresser drawer, and will help you ~bee~ neat when it comes to putting away socks, tights, and underwear.

amazon.com

The set snaps together with maximum dimensions of 13.25 inches x14.38 inches, but you can snap two (or more!) packs together if you want to fill more drawer space!

Promising review: "Perhaps one of the better nonbasket-style ways to organize small clothing pieces in a drawer that I've found to date. I tried another style that allows for size customization, but found the unit to always shift during use. This piece remains in place after its set up in the drawer. It allows for me to keep track of socks and other small clothing well and I can easily see if I need to replace items that get worn over time. (Or if I'm losing one too many socks to the dryer monster.) I personally did not need to trim the plastic pieces to fit in my drawer, but if one did, it would require a sturdy pair of scissors." —Marilyn

23. A matte foundation that'll withstand oily skin *and* provide buildable coverage. Its formula is noncomedogenic (buh-bye, clogged pores) and stays on all day long.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I love this foundation. This is the first foundation I have tried that has matched my skin so closely. It gives me medium to light coverage which I personally love because I like wearing this during the summertime. I have acne scars that I really don't love — they make me feel self-conscious — but this product provided coverage over them. In the two photos linked I only used foundation, no concealer, around my cheeks and forehead. You can obviously see the coverage this foundation gave me. Also what tops it all is that this foundation is matte! I have very oily skin so this thing is my holy grail. If you are wondering whether to get it just read this review. It goes on and blends flawlessly. I bought another bottle just because I love it so much!" —Simpleebekah

24. A selfie ring light because it'll give you studio-quality lighting in dark rooms. Three lighting modes (white, warm yellow, and warm white) and 10 different brightness settings will elevate your selfie-taking game regardless of where you are indoors.

amazon.com

It comes with its own easy-setup tripod *and* a clip that'll let you attach your phone to the tripod, so you can take photos from different angles and know what you're doing during a photo shoot!

Promising review: "This selfie ring light is well-made. The tripod is sturdy, but lightweight, and the ring light is bright. The tripod can be set at various heights depending on the occasion, and yet it is very compact to carry around. It can stand on the floor or be set up on a desk — very flexible. The ring light has three modes: warm yellow, warm white, and white, as well as 10 levels of brightness. It is suitable for all kinds of lighting needs. Also, the phone clip is easy to put on and easy to secure the phone in place. I use this for selfies and for video conferencing. It works really well." —Di W.

This all-purpose and vegan paste is great for removing rust, hard-water stains, grease, and more messes around home! To use, just apply it to a surface with a damp cloth, gently rub it in, rinse it off with water, and polish the area with a dry cloth.

Promising review: "Amazing product. No chemicals, no toxic odor. Shower wall hard-water stains completely wiped out. I used other products on my 10-year-old oven door and it never came as clean. First try, I wiped on, wiped off. (Recommended at least five minutes.) Second try, I applied Pink and left it overnight. Baked-on grit was softened enough I could use a spoon to scrap. End result...BIG DIFFERENCE. By far the best versatile, nontoxic, and gentle abrasive product." —ap808

amazon.com, amazon.com

BuzzFeed editor Heather Braga tried this cleaning pen and said: "This seemingly average little cleaning pen is filled with a high-performance formula that cleans jewelry like nothing I've ever experienced. It contains micro-fine cleansers, polishing agents, and a polymer that will make your gems so shiny they'll nearly blind you. I've used it on my diamond rings, but it also works wonders on my cubic zirconia earrings." Check out her review of the Connoisseurs 1050 Diamond Dazzle Stik.

Promising review: "My life has changed since I discovered this. I was previously using a toothbrush and found that it just wasn't getting all the gunk underneath my diamond. I have no idea what kind of magic is in this cleaning stick, but my ring looks brand new after cleaning. The bristles are soft and firm at the same time, allowing you to get all around the prongs and underneath the stone." —Ay

Apply it to grout lines, let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes, and agitate the grout with a bristled brush to lift all the nasty gunk that's been there for way too long.

Promising review: "We moved into our house a year ago and I’ve been on a quest to clean the grout next to the stove ever since then. I’ve tried everything — store products, DIY solutions, Pinterest recommendations, you name it. As a last resort I got this and holy cow! I left it on for three minutes as a spot test at first and I could already see a huge difference. I then did two more rounds letting it sit for five minutes each. The scent's not bad, it was fine if I had the window open, it was just being down close to it that got me. Seriously, stop looking and buy this." —Britney Phillips

Promising review: "I had the most disgusting Hydro Flask coffee mug — I tried everything. Bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, everything, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought another Hydro Flask to replace it. Now eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out completely, without even scrubbing.

Promising review: "I truly think that this is a good investment for your skin. I’ve spent so much on so many products — all the Korean trends and so many expensive brands — and I can say that nothing else worked this effectively in such a short time. Now, it’s not a miracle serum that removes all your acne and scars, but it definitely helps reduce them. It has no scent, it’s not sticky, and it blends in quickly. The packaging is great. Also, the customer service is so great — very responsive and helpful — if you have any concerns at all. I would try this serum before spending so much on others." —Beliz

Promising review: "I always kill my plants but I decided to try again. I just bought five houseplants, and three of them were marked down because they were looking pretty puny. Since I tend to kill them anyway, I figured I would give them a try and save some money. I put one of these spikes in each plant and they all looked so much healthier and happier after just a couple days. I also added one spike to the only houseplant that I've had for years without killing (I was beginning to think it was artificial) the leaves looked healthier almost immediately. I'm very happy with this product and it was a great price." —victoria

Promising review: "It’s a great product. So far I’ve noticed a pretty significant difference in the inflammation on my dogs paw pads. She has also seemed to stop licking! I bought her a cone as well just so she wouldn’t lick the product because I’m just precautious, but I love it so far. The pics of her paws are about six days apart and I’ve been working a lot so I haven’t been able to use it three times a day, but once or twice has made a huge difference." —Madelaine Christopher

34. A cool pill-removing, pumice-esque stone that'll help revive clothes you always wear. Brush this baby across your fave sweatshirts or sweaters and say buh-bye to bad pilling. They'll look *almost* brand new in no time.

BuzzFeed/Maitland Quitmeyer

BuzzFeed Shopping editor Maitland Quitmeyer loves this little tool! She said: "Like many of you, I've been living in sweats and PJs during this almost year of WFH full time. And it's made me revisit the state of some of my loungewear. Take for example, this college sweatshirt I wear all the time — as evidenced by the rather EXTENSIVE pilling all over it. So when I saw this pumice-esque sweater stone (it's made from upcycled car windshield glass — how cool is that?!), I decided it was worth the try. We've featured electric pill removers (mostly the fan-favorite Conair one) many times, and they really work. But sometimes you're looking for a little more detail or control — that's where this stone comes in handy. I was able to navigate around the contours of the logo on my sweatshirt with ease, removing pills using the corner or the entire flat bottom in a few quick strokes. It truly took no time at all — the sweatshirt was done in mere minutes." Read more of her Celsious Sweater Pill Remover review.

The color was also fading and I thought it was a goner. After some elbow grease, the sectional looks great! It's now back to its original color without being blotchy. More importantly, the suppleness has returned. I can actually say that it looks as good as the day we bought it." —jellybean55

Here's how it's made: The spines of the books are attached together and have all the pages and covers cut out of them, except two covers on the ends. You can customize how long you would like it to be and choose a color scheme.

Covogoods is a small business based in Utah that specializes in hidden storage and home decor goods.

Promising review: "Wonderful!! We spent the past month remodeling our living room, but we didn't account for how AWFUL the cable boxes and modem were going to look on our beautiful new shelves. Saw this and had to have it! Covogoods not only communicated quickly with me, but was EXTREMELY accommodating in my requests. Turned out exactly how I envisioned it, and dimensions were spot on! No more ugly cable boxes and wires!" —Lindsey Martinez

37. Microfiber makeup remover cloths that'll remove stubborn concealer, foundation, blush, and eye makeup with a little bit of water. Yes, I repeat *JUST WATER* — no greasy cleansers, harsh scrubbing, or wasting disposable wipes to get your face clean again.

Promising review: "I was skeptical of these, but now I'm pretty sure they're what Mulan's outfit was made of when she wiped her makeup off on her sleeve in the movie. Even totally dry, they do a pretty impressive job of taking off all my makeup (including waterproof eyeliner and mascara) in a couple swipes. I like to use a little micellar water to make my skin feel a little cleaner. It's nice not to burn through so many cotton pads." —RachelM

Promising review: "I love this oil. It's not greasy at all and after using it for two weeks I noticed my acne scars going away.

I love it!" —Camille

39. A drawer organizer you'll want to use for cutlery, utensils, and scissors stashed in a small space. This tray will keep all your cooking tools neatly arranged, so you don't have to waste time trying to find a knife or fork. Plus, there will be much more room in your kitchen drawers.

amazon.com

Promising review: "This thing is a lifesaver, the only utensil organizer I could find that fits the narrow drawers in my apartment kitchen. Luckily it's also very well made and has plenty of room for the amount of silverware I have (about eight spoons, forks, and butter knives each). I highly recommend if you want to maximize drawer space." —Amazon Customer

41. And a rust stain remover to tackle the toughest red spots ruining your sink, drain, and shower walls. This spray formula gently breaks down nasty rust on the spot. You'll save $$$ on bathroom repairs in no time.

amazon.com

Promising review: "Iron Out was literally spray, spray, and spray, wipe to spread the product evenly, and walk away. It started working almost immediately. I went and made a pot of coffee, played with the dog for a few minutes, and by the time I came back my shower was white! Holy wizardry! Seriously, it was more work to clean the mirror over the vanity than to use this product." —Jessica B.
