As for the colors themselves? You'll get red, yellow, blue, green, purple, orange, indigo, and magenta.

    Promising review: "The colors came out bright and vibrant, and they're easy to mix because you just have to add water. Plus, the lids screw back on to store leftover dyes until next time!" β€”Carol

    2. Adjustable clip holders to turn any bra into a no-show racerback. Long gone will be the days of β€”> put on shirt β€”> bra shows β€”> take off shirt to change bra β€”> put shirt back on again. Not to be dramatic, but these clips will change your life when you're in a rush (which is always) and will immediately give your outfit a more put-together look.


    Promising review: "My bra straps spend more time off my shoulders than on β€” but NOT ANYMORE. I was hoping something like this existed and when I found it, I was so happy. They're as glorious as I expected them to be. These are life-changing." β€”Amanda

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $6.97 (available in six colors).

    3. A Downy wrinkle-eliminating spray for the person who doesn't want to show up to that meeting looking like they just rolled out of bed. This spray works to eliminate wrinkles, static, and odor, which is especially lovely if your laundry hamper is constantly filled to the brim.

    Just spray a bit of this spray onto a piece of clothing, lay it out for a few moments to dry, and BAM! The wrinkles will have all but disappeared.

    Promising review: "I purchased this because my husband does our laundry and he has no concept of taking our clothes out of the dryer before wrinkles set in. I was skeptical about it at first, but it actually works! I used it on a t-shirt and boom, the wrinkles came out." β€”Kindle Customer Jackie

    This brush has a welt surface, nylon bristles, an arched half circle brush, and a protruding brush that lets you clean different kinds of suede with no harsh rubbing or scrubbing required.

    Promising review: "BUY THIS THING! I got mud of my new suede boots and thought they were ruined, but this brush completely restored them. I was shocked. I even used it on an old pair of boots from college that I have considered ruined for several years now, and it did wonders on getting rid of the filth on top of the suede. This is absolutely worth getting!" β€”Gaby Scott

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    5. A no-tie lacing system that is durable, adjustable, and conforms to your foot for a personalized feel. No more having to deal with the messy look of laces that come untied every .5 seconds.

    Promising review: "All I can say is that these shoelaces have saved me about 25 minutes every morning with my three kids! Great quality, very nice colors ,and super easy to use. Never worry again about having to tighten shoes in the middle of the street!" β€”ColorMeLife

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in 12 colors).

    6. Arm & Hammer moisture absorbers here to keep musty scents at bay in your closet. These hanging bags combine chloride crystals and baking soda to neutralize odors and keep your clothes smelling fresh for a longer period of time, meaning that sweater you washed three months ago will still smell as if it was just plucked from the dryer two minutes ago.

    One bag alone lasts 60 days!

    Promising review: "This works wonders! I had a bedroom that smelled so musty and moldy that it took my breath away, even after several rounds of thorough cleaning and disinfecting. This completely eliminated the odor within a few days!! I have had success in every area I have tried this product in where nothing else had worked. It not only removes the moldy smell, but the area actually smells fresh!" β€”M Cook

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $7.57.

    7. The ThirdLove Fit Finder, which is an online quiz to help you determine which bra style works best for your breast shape and size β€” because we are done with having undergarments that bunch up and gape under our clothes. They even offer a wide array of bras available in half-cups for anyone who is between sizes, generally a true struggle when it comes to shopping for undergarments. / Via @thirdlove

    Take a quiz to determine which kind of bra you should be shopping for!

    Get everything from a balconette bra to a t-shirt bra from ThirdLove for $68 (available in cup sizes A-I and band sizes 30-48).

    8. An enzyme-based Puracy spot remover that's tough on blood, armpit sweat, and tears, so it's important not to panic if your favorite top has begun to yellow in the dreaded underarm area. This cruelty-free concoction will brighten it up in a jiffy, proving that not all heroes wear capes.

    It's also tough on tomato juice, red wine, mud, makeup, pet stains (BAD BOY), and any other stains that would put a pretty big damper on your day.

    This toxic- and cruelty-free concoction is made from vegan ingredients that aren't harmful to pets or children. Oh, and speaking of children! If you have a very young child prone to making a mess of their onesie (they'll be potty-trained one day, right?) you'll want to buy this stain remover ASAP.

    Promising review: "I had some super nasty dress shirts that I was about to throw away. No matter how much I washed them, my antiperspirant deodorant was caked up inside the armpits and actually smelled like someone with rank armpits just took it off (not me certainly!?). I put two squirts of this stuff under each armpit and rubbed for about 15 seconds each. Then I tossed all the shirts in the floor for the night, still wet. The next morning, I washed them, took them out of the dryer, and I couldn't believe that the shirts looked and smelled brand new. I love this stuff!" β€”Don K.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.49.

    9. A leather hole puncher to customize the fit of your belts and bags because a) a bag that’s too long will flop around your hips and feel uncomfortable, and b) a belt that does not properly fit will sometimes just hang there between one belt loop and the next. In short, invest in this hole puncher. It is truly worth it.

    Promising review: "I ordered this to shorten a couple of leather belts, but was nervous because I don't have a lot of hand strength. NOT A PROBLEM! It is easy to operate even for weak little me, and everything you need is included. I had two belts adjusted within five minutes!" β€”Annie

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95.

    10. Double-sided tape so you can freely wear any deep V-neck top without fear of your breast friends making an appearance. Plunging halters, you no longer intimidate me. In fact, this will give me more motivation to actually take you off that hanger and *wear* you.


    The adhesive is strong but super gentle on your skin, meaning it won't cause any irritation or redness.

    Promising review: "This product works great! I wore a very low-cut maxi gown for my engagement photos and absolutely NEEDED tape to make the top portion stay in place/avoid a nip slip. This product totally did the job." β€”britt mo

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    11. A Cuisinart salad spinner that can be used for salad, sure. But it can *also* be used to "hand wash" your delicates, extend the life of your underwire, and prevent those expensive pieces from shrinking, losing their color, or just getting straight ruined when you try to launder it.


    Reviewers love to use a salad spinner for their bras because it drains out excess water, meaning it cuts ~air dry~ time down to a third.

    Promising review: "I actually bought this salad spinner to wash my bras. It sounds kinda crazy, I know, but it works really well. It gets them nice and clean and also really cuts down on the drying time, which is fantastic β€” my bras will take eight hours to dry as opposed to 24. I set it in the tub when I use it, and the hole at the top makes it easy to drain the dirty water when you are done." β€”Serenity

    Get it from Amazon for $18.26.

    12. Iron-on patches to quickly mend all unintentional tear-in-jean scenarios. If your denim is beginning to rip at the inner thigh but you're not quite ready to retire them, then behold! I present you with the perfect solution.

    Just turn your jeans inside out, iron these on, and they'll basically be good as new. The set also comes with four different washes of denim, meaning you'll be able to use a patch that blends in super well.

    Promising review: "I got a hole in the inner thigh area on one of my favorite pairs of pants and I couldn’t throw them out. These patches worked great! I’ve worn them since and they are holding well and the patch isn’t noticeable at all." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get a set of 12 patches from Amazon for $6.99.

    13. No-show socks that won't peek out over the top of your lace-up sneakers and clash with your ensemble. PLUS! These comfy bad boys have a silicone backing on your heel which translates to πŸ‘ no πŸ‘ more πŸ‘ slipping πŸ‘ socks πŸ‘.


    Promising review: "I have ordered many no-show socks hoping for the elusive ones that fit, and these feel good and STAY UP in the heel area." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get a pair of eight from Amazon for $5.50+ (available in seven colors and two sizes).

    14. A Conair fabric defuzzer here to get rid of accumulated lint and pilling to make that (very old) sweater look as if it were just plucked from the racks of your favorite clothing store. Have you already washed and worn this top 98 times? The world may never know.

    Promising review: "I don't know how I've lived 34 years without this product! It's a total game changer. I just de-fuzzed every piece of clothing I own, and loved every minute of it! I specifically sought this product for my very expensive Lularoe addiction, which I found were getting rather pilly after only a few wears, and everything is like new again!" β€”Jessica Grzeskowiak

    Get it from Amazon for $10.79 (available in seven colors).

    15. Bra extenders that add two inches of length to any band, making this the perfect accessory for anyone who's looking for a little extra breathing room *or* found a great bra in the clearance bin that's just a bit too tight. Presenting an easy solution!

    Promising review: "Bought these for my pregnancy based on a tip from a recently pregnant friend. Total gamechanger. Only had to buy a new sized bra once, and then used these for the rest of my pregnancy, as my cup size didn't change any more but omg my ribcage just kept on expanding and expanding to accommodate baby. IMO, these make wearing a regular bra possible during those body-changing portions of pregnancy, saving me money in the long run. Additionally, they work as expected...they clip onto the original spacers easily, they match up with the original hooks really well, and they are very comfortable and easy to use. Best $6 I've ever spent on Amazon. Buy them, you won't regret it." β€”Kiki

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $6.99 (available in three colors).

    16. A repair kit for all the jeans, purses, and jackets in your wardrobe that have been cursed with faulty zippers. This set comes with everything you need to fix 'em; 11 replacement sliders, six top stops, and four bottom stops in different colors to ensure everything matches.

    Promising review: "This worked perfectly. A slider had broken on my jacket and I just followed the included instructions, pulled off the top stop, and tried a few of the new sliders until I found one that fit. I didn't know this product existed and I thought I'd have to have the entire zipper replaced. Very happy to be able to zip up my jacket again!" β€”Jefferson R.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95.

    17. An elastic belt sans buckle β€” that way, you won't feel a piece of metal digging into your belly button but you *also* won't have to deal with a gaping waistband that is most definitely revealing the color of your underwear to the world.


    Promising review: "I love this! It's perfect for pants that are a little loose in the waist, and great for travel because you never need to re-buckle!" β€”J. Belford

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S–L and in five colors).

    18. A laundry board capable of folding your entire wardrobe with precision, ensuring that everything looks beyond tidy in your drawers and closet. Goodbye, wrinkled t-shirts scattered throughout my dresser and goodbye, not being able to properly see what I actually own.,

    This board is super easy to use! Just lay the board flat (with a tee, towel, pants, whatever, on top) and simply flip the left side, then the right, and that's it! You're done! Plus, this works perfectly for not just clothes, but also linens and towels.

    Promising review: "My first reaction was 'Why did I buy this?' Then I gave this a try with a couple shirts I had just washed and next thing you know, I simply had to do my entire drawer! Everything folds so neatly and easily with this thing. I still couldn't believe it, so I ended up organizing our bedsheets and towels. I am amazed at how much of a game changer this is. Must try! Am in love on how beautiful it left my clothes." β€”Jesus Antonio Vedia

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in five colors)

    19. Button extenders that I wish I'd purchased before inhaling my last Thanksgiving dinner. These durable babies add an extra 1" to your waistline and are perfect for jeans that run *slightly* too tight or have shrunk in the wash.

    Promising review: "We all have those favorite pair of pants or shirts that we look absolutely great in; you gain a little weight and goodbye to those favorite pants and shirts. That was BEFORE running across this product on Amazon. That pile of clothes that no longer fit are no longer a problem because I get all the 'extra space' I need by applying one of these comfy things. If you are like me and have clothes that no longer fit, this product is a better investment that spending on a new wardrobe. Buy this product and tell all your friends your new secret." β€”Paganni's Ghost

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $7.95 (available in three colors).

    20. Non-slip cushions you can add to the front of your highest, most torturous heels! Rest assured that they'll prevent the ball of your foot from aching mid-way through that fancy event you have to endure. Guess who won't be walking barefoot by Venetian hour?

    Promising review: "This product is truly remarkable. I used these foot pads on heels that left me with significant foot pain. I wore these heels with foot pads last night, and I was dancing for two to three hours straight without any discomfort." β€”Priscilla R.

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $13.97.

    21. A reusable sticky adhesive bra perfect for deep V-neck tops, backless dresses, and strappy shirts in which a visible bra band would ruin the entire look. This silicone bra provides the perfect amount of support while staying in place all night (HOORAY) and isn't painful to take off.

    Psst, this bra also comes with nipple covers.

    Promising review: "Seriously, having large (DDD) boobs can really put a damper on trying to wear cute shirts in the summer. Some shirts you can’t wear a bra with and going braless is 100% not an option, so I heavily rely on sticky bras. I definitely prefer the silicone ones over the cloth ones and this bra just reinforces that opinion. It sticks so well and is completely invisible, even under the clingiest shirts I own. Another huge bonus is the nipple covers! I have used many different types over the years and have found that the silicone ones can sometimes look puffy under certain shirts, but these covers are thin and (again) cannot be seen under clingy clothes at all. They really come in handy if you know you will be outside and run the risk of sweating off your bra since the nipple covers do not have that issue." β€”Sarah F.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes A-F cup and three colors).

    22. A shoe cleaning kit for when the time has come to take your kicks and give them a good scrub-a-dub-dub. This duo takes your saddest sneakers from grossly dirty to brand spanking new with just a few seconds of gentle polishing, saving you a ton of money that you would have otherwise spent on a new pair.

    Just spray your shoes with the cleaner, grab the soft-bristled brush it comes with, give your kicks some gentle scrubbing β€” and that's it! Your shoes will look like they haven't visited about 809 dive bars throughout their lifetime.

    Promising review: "You NEED this. It works amazing with just a small amount of cleaner and dampening the brush that is included in the set. I travel weekly for work and my travel sneakers were awful from the grungy airports, but with little to no effort, they are sparkling white again." β€”Robby Tee

    Get it from Amazon for $15.97.

    23. Hem tape to provide a quick fix for all your ~should've brought these to the tailor~ needs. These allow you to shorten long pants and skirts, no finger-pricking sewing needles required.


    Pants bunching up around your ankles = not ideal. Fix that problem in a jiffy with this simple tape!

    Promising review: "This tape did the job for me! I took them on a cruise for two reasons. First, I didn't have time to properly hem a pair of pants and when applied correctly, the hems stayed in place until the adhesive was removed. Second, short socks always slide off of my heels, so I applied the tape to the inside of the socks and no more problems!" β€”Paule T.

    Get a pack of 24 from strips from Amazon for $5.63.

    24. A lint remover capable of picking up every speck of dust, dirt, and pet hair plastered onto your furniture. This means that you can get dressed, sit on your couch to drink your morning coffee, and leave the house with peace of mind knowing your entire wardrobe isn't covered with a layer of fur.

    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-lb. 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. After using this, I can put on a black dress and roll around on my bed and not get a single hair on me. It's absolutely amazing. Everyone is getting one for Christmas, even if they don't have a pet. I don't care, it's THAT good." β€”Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    25. A shoe stretcher to break in and widen a new pair of know, the ones that are just a teeny bit too small but they were on clearance and you couldn't resist buying them! DSW, your discounted designer selection will be the death of my savings.

    These shoe stretchers don't work for boots, but they work for pretty much any other shoe you have in your closet. Heels, sneakers, wedges, etc.

    Promising review: "This shoe stretcher works like magic! I inserted the stretcher into my leather flats and followed the simple instructions on how to use it. On the second day, It made such a huge difference! The leather stretched out nicely and I was able to wear my flats with no more pain because of the narrow width." β€”Linda

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $16.99.

    26. A deodorant sponge to get rid of those dreadful white marks that are basically impossible to avoid with just a few quick swipes. No more having to walk out the house wearing a black tee covered in patches of antiperspirant! (Deodorant: so necessary because we smell, so annoying because it stains everything it touches.)


    Promising review: "Love these gal pals!! Have been using them for about 15 years now, and they're great at removing deodorant stains from your clothing. They worked exactly as described!" β€”Val D.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.

    27. A leather cleaner you'll want to use on everything from your car interior to your favorite purse; the one you paired with a pair of brand new blue jeans, the color of which then transferred onto and stained said favorite purse.

    Promising review: "This cleaner took off years of jean stains on my leather purse. I’m not going to lie and say it didn’t require a couple hours of constantly rubbing circles with the cloth to get my purse looking like this, but just turn on a movie and get to work. I’ve tried other cleaners and nothing has ever worked this well." β€”Bailey

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98.

    28. Fabric softener sheets because nothing is as euphoric as putting on freshly-washed (and fantastic smelling) clothes. Plus, these work to prevent wrinkles and static which means that it earns the grade of A+ on my end.


    Promising review: "These are my favorite fabric softener sheets! They smell heavenly, and keeps my clothes soft and smelling fresh. This is great for every household." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of 240 sheets from Amazon for $7.33.

    29. A foot and shoe spray with peppermint, thyme, eucalyptus, and tea tree oil. If you've got sweaty feet that have made your shoes stink to high heaven, this natural and anti-bacterial formula will prevent any skunk-like odors from forming (which is, dare I say, no small feet).

    This stuff is great for both feet *and* shoes.

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing! I have hyperhidrosi and ruin all of my shoes, especially my flats and my running shoes. I started using this daily, spraying this spray liberally on the bottom of my feet after showering and in my shoes right after I take them off. I noticed a difference after just one use! Plus, I love that it's made from natural ingredients. This will change your life!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $13.49.

    Add up to 12 pairs of socks and throw it into the wash with the rest of your laundry!

    Promising review: "Finally a product that makes this part of my life simpler! Seriously keeping sock together is one of those little life challenges that is annoying enough to drive me insane after each load of laundry. I only bought one set for myself to test out, but now I will be buying them for my wife and my kids to use. I did notice that if I tightened the socks too snug they would still be slightly damp after the dryer, but I slightly loosened the tension and that issue has been easily resolved." β€”Joshua

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $16 (available in four colors).

    32. Cleaning wipes suitable for both leather and suede, and perfect for stashing in your black tote bag when the weather is being temperamental! Salt stains from snow? Water marks from that mid-afternoon downpour you weren't expecting? Just wipe them away.

    Promising review: "I have expensive suede booties that I mainly wear to go out so they're subjected to rain, alcohol, and average bar grime. There's nothing worse than wearing something and stressing about it getting ruined. I used this product for the first time after a year of wearing my booties and still, these wipes removed a year of damage. They didn't ruin the suede and my booties feel soft again!" β€”AmazonShopper

    Get a pack of 15 from Amazon for $8.29.

    Promising review: "I've long been frustrated with my underwear drawer, because everything gets jumbled together β€” even when I try to fold everything neatly and keep things separate. Lately, I've been on an organizational kick, so I decided to give these a try. I'm SO GLAD I did! I can see everything at a glance, which means no more hunting for things or digging through piles to find what I'm looking for. It's brilliant!" β€”Orianna

    This sterling silver magnet clasp is also nickel-free, meaning it won't turn your neck a putrid shade of green after .5 seconds of wear.

    Promising review: "I have a number of necklaces with clasps so tiny that I have trouble connecting them, so I was looking for magnets that would be strong enough to support a chain and pendant that were fairly valuable. This turned out to be a winner! I can sleep and shower with it on and never have to worry about it becoming detached. I actually have to tug a bit to get it to unlatch." β€”EDC

    Get it from Amazon for $16.52.
