36 Products Under $20 That Just Really Truly Work

Powerful grout cleaners, mascara that won't clump, and a foolproof silicone tool for poached eggs.

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 bottle of Drop It, a natural sulfate and tannin remover that you can ~drop~ in your Ikea wine glass to halt hangovers in just 20 seconds. Resume your nightly Monstober DCOM tradition with some red in hand, knowing you won't wake up to a monster headache.

Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

Drop It recommends one to two drops for each glass of white wine, two to three for a glass of red, and seven to nine if you're treating the whole bottle at once. Once it's in the glass, swirl lightly for 20 seconds, and you should be raring to go!

Promising review: "I became really sensitive to wine in my 30s and through a lot of trial and painful error, I thought I might have to give up on wine altogether. Then I found out about the preservatives being a possible cause and decided to give this product a shot. So glad I did!! I'm still pretty sensitive to reds but this helps tremendously so that I can have a glass with dinner without a headache immediately settling in. Whites cause me no problem whatsoever! I love that it takes so little product to make a difference to a whole bottle. Just a few drops, a few minutes, and we are good to go." —CastawayIrons

Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

2. A set of ~car wash wipes~ if dragging your you-know-what to the actual car wash feels like....too much work. The amount of receipts you'll have to throw out to avoid embarrassment! The water bottles! What about all the stuff you have in your trunk! Let's not talk about it anymore, just buy some damn wipes.

They're extra large and pre-moistened to remove dirt, dust, road grime, and more.

Promising review: "This was a lifesaver! I was driving behind a cement truck when it decided to pepper my car with tiny splatters of cement to the hood and roof of my car. I was able to pull over and take out my Wash Wipes and get to work. I cleaned up all the cement from my black car before it dried to the paint, and it only took one wipe (both sides) to clean the hood free of all cement." —Wicket571

Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $10.64.

3. A scratch-free, odor-resistant Scrub Daddy sponge that adapts depending on water temp: run it under cold water for cleaning crud-ridden pans that once housed last weeks lasagna, *or* under warmer water so it can soften for lighter cleaning tasks.

Promising review: "I used to save these little gems for 'special projects' (what projects, I don't know because I ended up not ever using them!). Then one day I decided 'what the heck, just use one in the sink for dishes, you can always buy more.' Lo and behold, I LOVE them! They remove food off of dishes more easily than a sponge and I just throw them in the top rack of the dishwasher and they come out spotless! They never smell and always rinse out nicely in between washings. These little gems even take off hard water build up from my shower doors! (I also use regular cleaners with them to do the trick.). I love these so much I bought a bunch and used them as stocking stuffers last Xmas! Everyone loves them!" —DivaGranny

Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

4. A tiny milk frother that makes it easy to whip up your very own, typically very expensive PSL at home — and quickly. This stainless-steel whisk truly has so many darn uses: Let your mouth water at the thought of cappuccinos, lattes, hot chocolate, matcha, milkshakes, and more.,

Promising review: "All of my friends and family had this so naturally I had to get one and I am obsessed. Makes every homemade coffee taste like you went out and bought one. Very affordable and worth every penny. I love that is comes with a cute holder for it." —Kayla Dillinger

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

5. A six-port outlet that swivels because the only outlet in your entire bedroom is covered by a heavy dresser. Say so long, farewell to wiggling furniture out in order to make room for bulky plugs: this lets you charge six devices at the same darn time.


This even has two USB ports. Bless.

Promising review: "Brilliant! Very handy wall plug that not only adds extra outlets, but they can be turned sideways to use, so will fit snugly behind furniture! It appears to be a surge protector too! I will buy more of these!" —L.C.

Get it from Amazon for $18.93.

6. A four-sided brush cleaner for when when it's time to finally break out the suede booties. This easily cleans away scuff marks and salt stains with little to no effort required, making it the perfect thing to have on hand for after you've gone apple picking. On a farm. Where there is quite a lot of dirt. The kind that will leave marks on your shoes.

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.

Promising review: "BUY THIS THING! I got mud on 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!" —Gaby Scott

Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

7. Blume Whirl Moisturizer smells like heaven (*inhales coffee, coconut, and vanilla cookie scent*) and works like a miracle, to boot. Listen up: Acne-prone skin still needs moisture! And this truly delivers on its promise of dewy, plump, and spot-free complexions.

three jars of moisturizer

Ingredients like hyaluronic acid, prickly pear seed oil, aloe juice, rosehip oil, grapeseed oil, licorice root *and* skullcap root extract are responsible for the magic that is this product.

Psst, you can use this morning and night!

Promising review: "I really enjoy the texture. Not oily but hydrates well. The fragrance is light and yummy. I have sensitive skin, experience hormonal acne, and it hasn't caused any new breakouts! My skin feels great when I wake up." —Carissa L.

Get it from Blume for $34.

8. A Dash mini waffle maker so adorably spooky, it *may* inspire you to replace that morning cereal bar with an actual sit-down breakfast. Anything safely edible in the shape of a skull during Halloween season = very on-brand for me.


This waffle maker heats up super quickly, is designed with nonstick pans, and is fairly no-frills: just plug it in, pour some batter, and wait for the light to turn green. Your waffles are now ready!

Plus, this comes with a neat little recipe book packed with recipes for hash browns, paninis, biscuit pizzas — basically a bunch of recipes that can be done using just this little waffle maker.

Promising review: "This thing is incredible. I just mix up a batch of waffle batter and keep it in the fridge and in the morning, I plug this in while pouring my coffee. It reaches temp in about a minute, and then I'll pour in the batter and about the waffle is done about another minute later." —Seanster

Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in 10 colors and designs).

9. A vacuum hose attachment which multiple reviewers (multiple!) swear pulled out whole socks from their lint traps. Clogged vents = longer drying times = higher utility bills = less money in your bank account to put toward, say, more Seamless takeout.,

Promising review: "This thing is seriously amazing. I figured out how to use it very quickly and it worked like a charm. I had a sock stuck wayy down in my vent and would've had no idea! I still can't believe how much lint and dust came out of my dryer. My husband is already talking about other uses for this unique tool, like getting into tight spaces in our cars." —J. Johnson

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

10. A set of bed bands that work like suspenders to keep your fitted sheet in matter how much tossing and turning you get up to during the night. I sincerely hope that Bella Swan owned these.

Promising review: "Recently, thanks to COVID-19, I visited my parents and ended up staying with them to shelter in place. The guest bedroom is small with two beds. Mine is up against a wall. The sheets I bought pop off all the time. Drives me insane in normal circumstances, but when the bed is against a wall, it's so much worse. So far, these have been exactly what I needed." —Dee Fields

Get a set of four from Amazon for $12.99.

11. A no-scrub Wet & Forget cleaner to make "cleaning" as easy as one, two, spritz. This no-rinse product should be used weekly to keep your shower free of mildew, which basically means it will take all of two seconds to feel like you've deep-cleaned the place in which you bathe.


Promising review: "This stuff is excellent. It performs as promised, it has a very nice scent, no fumes, and leaves shower clean with no scrubbing actually necessary. It is very easy to apply and rinse off. It is designed very well, with squirting spout separate from the large container and attached by a longish tube, so you don't have to hold the heavy container while applying the product. I've been using it for quite a while now, and I love it. I highly recommend it." —Stephanie Martin

Get it from Amazon for $16.98+ (available in one, two, three, and four-packs)

12. Essence Lash Princess Mascara guarantees the most coveted compliment of all time: "Are those your real lashes?" This jet black lengthening formula won't smudge by lunchtime, plus costs less than $5 which... I'll have about eight tubes, please.

Emma Lord / BuzzFeed

Promising review: "I have to be honest, for a 'cheap' three-pack mascara, I did NOT have high expectations. These, however, exceeded my expectations and went MUCH MUCH farther. I had been buying a certain $25/tube brand (rhymes with truepique) and I like these just as much!! I’m saving a TON of money and like my lashes just as much." —Liz

Get it from Amazon for $2.48.

13. A magic carpet spot cleaner over 29,000 devoted reviewer *swear* by for removing stubborn stains. Ever spilled whole glasses of red wine on a white carpet? Opened an old marker and ka-blam, there is now black ink on your couch? This cleaner knows said worries and gets rid of them in a jiffy.

Be sure to check out our full write-up on this Folex stain remover!

Promising review: "Wow! I’m not one to write a product review but I’m honestly so impressed with this stuff. There was a black ink spot on our white carpet when we moved in, and I’ve tried everything to get it out. My attempts usually just smeared the spot around and made it worse. Folex immediately took out the stain with barely any scrubbing. I can’t believe how well it worked!" —Marlena Mayfield

Get it from Amazon for $12.14 (available in five sizes).

14. A set of silicone stretch lids because the idea of matching plastic lids with their appropriate container genuinely keeps me up at night. Save yourself the stress and use these to cover bowls, mason jars, etcetera.,

Promising review: "These things are super useful to have in the kitchen and have allowed us to cut way back on the amount of plastics we use. Probably one of the slickest uses my wife came up with is using the smaller one to cover the cut side of an onion. Also useful for covering open cans and leftover bowls. I thought they would be a nightmare to clean but just rest it topside down on your palm and run a soapy dishbrush around it, rinse, and you’re good to go." —Gman

Get a set of 14 in various sizes from Amazon for $15.99.

15. Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo will have everyone thinking that you actually shampooed and conditioned last night. HA! If only they knew it's been 84 years since your last proper scrub.

*it's been 84 years since I've last washed my hair, but this magic spray takes away grease, odor, and sweat in mere seconds*

Get it from LookFantastic for $18

16. A Terro apple trap because you left a single banana out for too long on your countertop and bam! Infestation. Constant swatting. Tears and aggravation. Thankfully, this gets rids of fruit flies in a jiffy, one trap lasts for up to 45 days, and best of all? It looks like an adorable piece of decor.

Promising review: "Cute little apple design and, more importantly, these work like a charm, ridding your home of nasty fruit flies. We seemed to get infested with fruit flies last fall because my kids will sometimes leave food and just do things that draw bugs — I was afraid we were a lost cause because we had so many fruit flies. I bought a few packs of these and put them around the house and it 100% cured the problem. I highly recommend! They do just pretty much smell like vinegar but it isn’t overpowering and you only notice if you’re really close." —Jeremy Charles sitkoski

Get a set of two from Amazon for $5.88.

17. Brow Flick is a brush-tip detailing pen that makes filling in sparse brows a summer breeze. The smudge-proof formula is sheer but buildable, here to help you create a natural (or dramatic) look depending on your preference.

before and after photo of BuzzFeed Senior Editor Maitland with and without the brow product
Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

"I've lived many eyebrow lives until this point: the not filled in at all, the filled in WAY TOO HARSHLY AND DARK (major regret), and most recently, the 'just a few sweeps of brow mascara.' But when Glossier launched their newest eyebrow wonder, the Brow Flick, I really wanted to try it and see if it filled in my brows a little more than just gel does, without looking tooooooooo over-the-top. My perfect face of makeup is a heavy-ish brow, mascara, and a red lip, but finding the right balance for your forehead caterpillars can be a major challenge. I have bushy-ish brows, but the front of them (closest to my nose) is a very sparse swirl, making it look like my brows don't even start where they should.

TL;DR: I LOVE this pen! It's really easy to apply in short, hair-like strokes, and the fluid doesn't come pouring out quickly so you don't make mistakes. I like a dramatic brow look (as you can see LOL), but you can defs do a more natural one! Thanks to the really fine tip and not-too-inky formula, it's VERY easy to build up! Just a few quick strokes (easier and more natural looking than a brow pencil, I found), a couple of brushes with your favorite brow gel (Boy Brow is great, and Glossier sells Boy Brow and Brow Flick in a set, saving you four bucks!). I also realized I really needed to pluck my brows after taking this photo for you guys, so it's a win-win!" —Maitland Quitmeyer, BuzzFeed Senior Editor

Get it from Glossier for $18 (available in three shades).

18. A Rubbermaid power scrubber that quickly ~scrubs~ away the stubborn soap scum you've been disgusted by for ages, but quietly ignored until now. This will have every corner of your bathroom looking as if went through a truly deep clean (even if the effort you put in was minimal).

Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

"I'm obsessed! This thing works small miracles: I cleaned about half of my bathroom's grout to its original sparkling-clean cream color in 40 minutes, and it took honestly no effort at all. And — as if easy, sparkling grout wasn't enough! — it busted through some serious soap-scum buildup in my bathtub (thanks, fancy soap and slow-draining tub) in less than a minute.

Honestly, when I first tried the scrubber out, I didn't see too many uses for it other than for grout. But after owning it for a while, I've realized that while I don't need it every single week, it's priceless for the occasions I encounter tough gunk that I'd otherwise only conquer with excessive patience and elbow grease." —Natalie Brown, BuzzFeed Editor

Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in five sizes).

Read Natalie's full review of the Rubbermaid Reveal Power Scrubber here.

19. An over-the-drain protector for anyone with a pop-up drain that is a: the bane of their existence and b: constantly getting clogged. Place this on top of your drain to trap gunk *before* it becomes a built-up abyss of gross scum that will take ages of time (and a professional plumber) to clear out.

reviewer photo of the gray pop-up drain protector

Promising review: "I've been very impressed! It's tall enough to fit easily over my pop-up drain and (even without suction cups) the weighted top keeps it in place. I have medium-length hair and seem to shed almost as much as my cat, but the drain protector catches it all and the hair is easily removed and tossed away. Best of all, the silicone doesn't hold onto mildew or mold. I have been able to spray and wipe away any grime with very little effort. It looks like this drain protector will last a very long time. This has been a very worthy purchase!"—Suneimi

Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in a pack of four and six).

20. Magnetic lashes for folks who don't have the steady hand required for applying globs of glue to their lash line. It's an impossible feat made unnecessary thanks to *this* scientific set, which comes with a magnetic eyeliner that the included falsies will stick to.

image of reviewer with full face of makeup including magnetic eyeliner and lashes

You'll get 12 pairs of lashes, four tubes of magnetic eyeliner, trimmers, tweezers, and a carrying case.

Promising review: “This is such a nice kit! I love that it comes with the tiny scissors for sizing the lashes, and the tweezers are not at all flimsy like with some other sets. The magnetic liner doesn't go on runny and it dries rather quickly. Great selection of lash styles. A good buy!” —kirken86

Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

21. A water-based tile pen that'll transform the chore of grout cleaning into a fun activity reminiscent of filling in the pages of an adult coloring book. Consider mold banished after a few swipes of this nontoxic formula, which releases anti-bacterial agents with each pass.

Promising review: "These things are awesome! I cleaned my bathroom tile grout first because the lady who lived there before me really let it go. A few places stayed stained and I was worried it wouldn't cover them, but all grout areas are bright white and look new after using this." —Donna K Cook

Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in four colors and two sizes).

22. A pack of laundry soap sheets for your next trip because have you packed 13 maxi dresses? Yes. But have you packed an ample amount of basics (white tees, underwear, etcetera)? Absolutely not. Simply grab a sheet, turn on the faucet, and hand-wash away.

the sheets

Promising review: "This came SO in handy during my vacation to Europe! I was making lots of different stops to places with different types of weather. With these laundry soap sheets I was able to wash my clothes in the sink — letting me pack just the right amount of clothes for all the different places I went." —Katie Fujarski

Get it from Amazon for $7.19 (available in four other styles, including hand soap and shampoo).

23. Affresh dishwasher cleaning tablets because HOW can you get clean, glistening dishes if the dishwasher itself is *gag* covered in grime? Answer: You can't. These babies are here to help. Simply pop one in, put on the rinse cycle, and continue watching your show. Easy peasy.

Promising review: "Works extremely well. We haven't done any cleaning on our dishwasher in five years, and the sliding dish trays were tough to pull out or push in, there was detergent buildup all over the inside, and there was a milky film on all our cups. I bought Affresh, ran the dishwasher with two tablets while it was empty, and the difference was astounding. There was still some buildup and I figured it would require another cycle, so I popped another two tablets in, ran the machine a second time, and now it looks and sounds brand new. No more film on the glasses, no more dirty dishes from clogged sprayers, no more odors." —Martoune

Get a pack of six from Amazon for $5.99.

24. Balm Dotcom enlists the help of castor oil, beeswax, and lanolin to moisturize your lips while subtle tints provide a splash of color ranging from cherry red to rose pink. And the scents? Divine. Birthday cake, mango, mint... good luck choosing just one.

Plus, this keeps those irritatingly dry spots feeling and looking hydrated (we're all looking at you, pointy elbows and peeling cuticles).

Get it from Glossier for $12 (available in eight scents). 

25. A cooktop cleaning kit here to help your oven look as sparkly as the day Home Depot dropped if off at your door. This works to cut grease stains and burnt cookie deposits like a knife, cleaning your cooktop surface more efficiently than any of the multi-surface sprays you've been using until this point.

This kit comes with a bottle of cleaner, one cleaning tool, and one scraper.

Promising review: "I’ve used this cleaning kit on glass top stoves for several years, and highly recommend it. The cream removes most marks on the cook top, and the accompanying razor and cleaning pad will remove any residue. If you clean this type of cook top after every use you’ll avoid spending much time cleaning. It literally takes only a minute or two to get the stovetop completely clean and ready for its next use. A few drops will do a thorough job so this size bottle will last a long while." —Cecilia P.

Get it from Amazon for $10.29.

26. A 3-in-1 OXO avocado slicer that can pit, split, and slice avocados like there's no tomorrow. I guess you can say that this time-saving tool truly ~guacs~ at turning your avocado toast breakfast dreams into a reality.

Promising review: "This product is life-changing for avocado eaters. Borrowed my brothers one day and immediately ordered my own. Even if you only eat avocados once a month, this is a must-have. I am totally against single use products, but this is different! And the piece on this that takes the pit out is amazing." —Emily Stivers

Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

27. A garbage disposal brush so you can deep clean *without* having to brace the grossness that is plate dirt and smelly leftovers. So long forever, nasty odors building up in my kitchen sink.

Promising review: "Do you ever remove the rubber cap between your sink & disposal? It is beyond gross! This is shaped just right & makes quick work of a yucky job. Good to do to keep odors away." —Mom328LSA

Get it from Amazon for $9.20.

28. Claw clips because it's about time we bid adieu to the damaging hair ties of updo's past and embrace the tool that TikTok has been telling me to buy for the last 13 months. These securely hold back your mane without tugging or pulling, meaning breakage and headaches = no longer an issue.


Promising review: "My hair is thin, but I have a lot of it and it’s so hard to get it off my neck and have a secure hold for the day. These clips are perfect! I can gather all my hair in one clip and it holds all day. No damage and no scalp pain. Love the different colors." —Liz B.

Get a pack of four clips from Amazon for $13.99 (available in six colors).

29. Bottle Bright cleaning tablets that quickly remove all that funky, gross, probably-starting-to-smell build-up in your favorite water bottle. These are biodegradable, chlorine-free, and require absolutely no effort or scrubbing. The results are so. damn. satisfying. to look at.

before picture of dirty bottle; a during photo of bottle with bubbles inside; and after photo of clean bottle

Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug and I tried everything, but there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER HydroFlask 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 any scrubbing necessary. They look brand new and there was no weird smell or taste afterward, either. Absolute magic!" —Amazon Customer

Get a pack of 12 tablets from Amazon for $8 (available in three styles).

30. A Feed-N-Wax polish and conditioner formulated with a blend of carnauba and beeswax to take your oldest furniture (the kind you've inherited from a grandparent) and makes it look brand. spanking. new. It provides a protective coating while removing every single water mark in sight.

Promising review: "Words cannot express how thrilled I am with this product. Dry, scuffed cabinets now look like NEW. You can watch this stuff work in seconds before your eyes. My bathrooms, laundry room, and kitchen cabinets look like they were professionally refinished. This stuff is no joke. I actually feel stupid that I let the wood go so long without touching it up. It’s so easy, just wipe on/wipe off. I shouldn’t have waited until the wood looked terrible." —Julie G.

Get it from Amazon for $8.98+ (available in five sizes).

31. A non-abrasive Bar Keepers Friend cleansing and polishing powder that will destroy years of icky build-up on all of your porcelain, copper, glass, tile, stainless steel, plastic, and brass. Time to grab your cookware set, folks, because the after photos are about to get GOOD.

reviewer before and after photo of pan with rust stains on left and less rust stains on right

Promising review: "We've all seen products that claim to be the "best" a whatever they are intended for. All too often, we are sadly disappointed by a product that falls far short of these audacious claims. Bar Keepers Friend is not one of these products. While I'm no barkeep, I can honestly state that I am impressed with the cleaning power of this product. I've used it on my glass-top stove, on metal pots and pans, and even some of those heavily stained aluminum baking pans that tend to turn brownish after use. This product cleaned them all...and with very little effort on my part. I tend to sprinkle just a little on whatever I am going to clean and then using a clean paper-towel or other nonabrasive cloth, with a bit of moisture, I then wipe the area until the stains lift up and out. A few extra passes to remove any remaining cleaning powder/product and I'm off to other chores. I seldom have to use this, but when I do, it is quick and efficient." —Steven M.

Get a pack of six from Amazon for $7.50+ (available in three sizes).

32. A compression foot sleeve reviewers swear helps with chronic heel pain and plantar fasciitis. Simply slip this on under your socks and voilà! You'll be able to walk 500 miles (and maybe even 500 more) sans discomfort.

Reviewer in a black compression sock that covers from the bottom of the toes to the top of the ankle

Promising review: "I have had nerve (mostly tingling but also minutes and aching) foot pain for approximately 12 years, and I'm still in my 30s. :( Nothing has helped significantly and consistently, until I tried these socks! I typically wear a 9.5 to a 10 in shoes, depending on brand. I ordered the medium size of these socks, and they are a perfect fit for my foot. I've tried a number of things before — physical therapy, cheap insoles, more pricey insoles, really expensive custom-made orthotic insoles. Nothing else has given me as much pain relief as these socks have! My pain has not disappeared completely; however, it was typically a 9 every day before and now it's a 2!!! Very significant improvement in quality of life for me!" —CobbleCreekWoods

Get a pair from Amazon for $15.95 (available in four sizes and nine colors).

33. A set of silicone cups for upping your breakfast game by several Michelin stars. Folks, say hello to fancy brunch via avocado toast with a perfectly poached egg on top — no extra time required, no panicking over the potential of a broken yolk.

Promising review: "These things are fantastic. I am a total klutz in the kitchen. A complete noncook. And yet two poached eggs came out perfectly the first time I used these little beauties. A squirt of Pam in each cup, crack and drop the egg in, set them on the turntable of my 1,100-watt microwave, cover them with a paper towel and 60 seconds later I had two completely delicious wonderfully done poached eggs. Voila! If I can do it, anyone can... Boy, am I impressed.!!!" —Leland C. Sheppard

Get a set of four from Amazon for $11.97.

34. A reusable microfiber Swiffer mop pad reviewers *swear* picks up even more gunk than the disposable versions do. The best part? Throw 'em in the wash after a deep clean — they'll come out brand new and ready to tackle your abode all over again. Money saved in the long run, baby.

Promising review: "I bought these for the same reasons most do — to be more environmentally friendly. I like the size of my Swiffer Sweeper, but always felt like I wasn't getting my floors fully clean. We recently got a new apartment, and I always like to deep clean before we do any major moving. I used them dry and wet. I've always been disappointed with how the disposable pads from Swiffer (barely) picked up dog fur and crumbs, but as you can see in the picture it picked up so much! This was already after using a traditional broom. Then using them wet with diluted Mrs. Meyer's cleaning concentrate — wow! The water was BLACK by the time I was all done with our downstairs area. They were so easy to Velcro on and off, wet or dry. Once I was all done, getting them off and doing a quick rinse wasn't hard at all. I love that I am supporting a small family business with all the convenience of Amazon. I will definitely buy again (if i ever have to). I am so excited to use these for years to come and have a cleaner house than I ever have before!!" —Kathryn Willer

Get a two-pack from Amazon for $14.99.

35. A set of oven liners to save you the heartache (yes, heartache) of burnt roast chicken bits — the kind that will require a minimum of seven scouring pads and so. much. backache to remove from your oven surface. Consider that time-consuming cleaning step all but gone and your motivation to make a fancy alfredo revitalized.


Promising review: "I got tired of cleaning the bottom of my oven out after every drip and spill, or running the 'oven clean' option, which uses up so much energy and makes my house HOT during the process. I used to have foil on the bottom of the oven to help with spills, and that improved things greatly — but then you have to replace the foil after a while. I had to cut them to size, which was easy to do with a simple pair of household scissors. Then I placed them in the oven (they look nice!), and I waited for it to get messy. I cooked something super messy and finally needed to clean the liner. It was SO easy; I put it in the sink and used my sink sprayer and everything immediately slid right off the liner. No problem! I have a double oven, so I was glad this pack came with more than one. I have one in each oven and one on standby in case I need it. I know that having a dirty oven isn't the worst thing in the world, but if it matters to you, try these!" —Hpg

Get a set of three from Amazon for $12.99.

36. A bottle of Dr Teal's foaming bath because soothing sore muscles is as easy as one-two-bath. Candles and a glass of vino not required but highly encouraged for the ultimate form of self-care.

Reviewer in a bubble bath with a bottle of Dr Teal's on display on the edge of the tub

Promising review: "This is a very pleasant lavender aroma. It's just the right potency so as not to be overwhelming as you're soaking. The Epsom salts are just what I need after a long day. It really helps my low back pain and is very soothing for tired legs as well. This creates lots of wonderful suds and makes quite the luxurious bath. Even my husband uses it. We've been using Dr. Teal's for many years — this is one of our favorites. We find that we both get a better night's rest as it helps us to relax and unwind from the hectic day. Absolutely recommend!" —Yorkie Mama
