    33 Practical Products That Belong In Every Home

    ....or in every apartment.

    1. A compact dustpan and brush set you'll want to keep in your kitchen. This will allow you to quickly sweep up alllll that Cocoa Puffs cereal you spilled, but it won't take up as much space as a boring regular-sized broom.

    2. A compressed gas duster to get all the fallen crumbs out from the cracks in your keyboard. I know you had planned on saving them for later, but...

    3. Dishwasher cleaning tablets because HOW can you get clean, glistening dishes if the dishwasher itself is *vomit* covered in grime? Answer: You can't.

    4. An electric dehumidifier ideal for rooms with a humidity level similar to that of a tropical rainforest. With this, you'll no longer wake up feeling like you took a shower in your sleep.

    5. Stemless wine glasses capable of surviving an American Horror Story-style apocalypse. These BPA-free babies are seriously shatterproof.

    6. An extension cord perfect for any home that has outlets in the most inconvenient of spaces. Raise your hand if you have two (!!!!) outlets behind your bed like I do!

    7. A drying rack that is a must-have for teeny tiny kitchens. This dish drainer can (fruit) roll up when not in use!

    8. An ice bucket designed with double wall insulation. In English? You will have 1) no messy condensation, and 2) your ice will actually remain ice for up to six hours.

    9. Reusable cable ties to abolish all "this charging cord is tangled beyond help" situations. These will keep 'em all nice and tidy.

    10. A knife sharpener for knives that have gone dull over time. They can't even slice through a loaf of bread anymore, let alone a darn steak!

    11. A waterproof tray to prevent muddy footsteps from ever approaching your hardwood floors. Maybe Adora from Sharper Objects should have invested in one of these, eh?

    12. Durable cleaning pads made by Grandma Aggie herself because these things are MAGIC. Be gone, pesky stains and scum.

    13. A showerhead caddy to store your body wash, shampoo, and conditioner, sure. But the real winner here? It also has two hooks for your razors.

    14. A multi-surface mop kit capable of sweeping up allllll the pesky allergens, pet hairs, dust, dirt, and grime trapped on your floor.

    15. An over-the-door mesh organizer that can house up to 24 pairs. Carrie Bradshaw, if your apartment was actually on par with NYC standards (AKA tiny), you would've really loved this!

    16. A plant-based multi-surface cleaner made from a non-toxic formula AKA this is safe around kids, pets, dinosaurs, you name it!

    17. A non-adhesive shelf and drawer liner that is super easy to install. Just cut the size you need and BAM! You're done. Plus, these are machine-washable.

    18. Washcloths made from a super-absorbent material perfect for drying your hands, patting your face, wiping up the excess water that is ALWAYS on your skin countertop, etc.

    19. A splurge-worthy dish rack that is truly *chef kisses fingers* perfect. It's rust-proof, can hang four (large) wine glasses, includes a drainage system for excess water, and it's FINGERPRINT-PROOF.

    20. A countertop trash can because raise your hand if you sometimes leave used cotton balls on your vanity table. Don't be shy, we all do it.

    21. An over-the-cabinet organizer to keep your many (many many many) hair products in order. Blow dryers, straighteners, curlers, wands, crimpers, and whatever the heck else!

    22. Precision-sharpened scissors you absolutely need to purchase, sure. But finding them when you need to cut through some gift wrap? Good luck with that.

    23. A double laundry hamper so you could automatically separate your white tee from your black dress. Plus, this handy thing holds a ton β€” four loads of laundry, to be exact!

    24. A wine stain remover for when you don't want your red, red wine to stay close to you. In fact, you don't want it there at all. (READ: unless it's in a glass.)

    25. A six-hook hanger to store your excessive amount of handbags. Not a handbag person? FINE! Because this can also store belts, ties, scarves, tank tops, and whatever the HECK else you can think of.

    26. Adhesive hooks you can easily install on any surface. And even better? They're easy to take off, too. These nifty little things won't damage your walls!

    27. A machine-washable shower curtain guaranteed to turn your (probably teeny tiny) bathroom into a floral oasis.

    28. Vacuum storage bags for all the winter outerwear that takes up WAY too much space in your closet. Space that could be used for MORE winter outerwear, thank you very much...

    29. Organizing bins to give your junk drawer some structure. This makes it easy to find pens, paper clips, the scissors you can never seem to find (see #21), that spare screw, the Target receipt you hopefully didn't throw out, etc.

    30. Magnetic all-purpose clips because true heartbreak is chomping on a beautiful Dorito just to realize that β€” GASP β€” it's gone stale.

    31. A stand mixer that is an absolute necessity in any kitchen. This thing can help make everything from bread and cookie dough to mashed potatoes and soup!

    32. An adhesive remover currently on Match.com, looking for an S/O that's not clingy. The last relationship just didn't stick.

    33. An over-the-cabinet holder designed to keep miscellaneous products out of sight, but not out of mind. And not to be dramatic, but euphoria is having a permanent home for your muffin pan.
