    37 Useful Products You'll Probably Want To Try Out ASAP

    I feel like this batter dispenser may even motivate me to bake, tbqh.

    1. A microwave steam cleaner to finally (and I mean finally) rid your microwave of the caked-on dinner that's been there since about, oh, last year. Simply fill this handy device with vinegar, let 'er run for five to seven minutes, wipe, and done.

    2. A Cerave exfoliating cleanser gentle enough for even the most sensitive complexions. Salicylic acid, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, and vitamin D pick up dead skin cells (the kind that cause gunk build-up) to prevent acne outbreaks — but this is still non-comedogenic, so your complexion won't feel overly tight *or* break out even further.

    3. An attachable aerator to make your less-than-$10 wine taste like it was sourced from Napa and aged for 10 centuries. "I'm getting some dry notes of expensive," you'll say after taking that first sip.

    4. A third-generation Echo Dot that can do everything from play music and make calls to read the news and set alarms — all at the sound of their voice! Having the ability to send texts and shuffle playlists (all hands-free!) is about to completely change their life for the better.

    5. A silicone popcorn maker capable of making 15 cups of popcorn in under four minutes. You'll just have to add in some kernels, ~pop~ it in the microwave, and BAM! Your movie marathon feast is now ready to be devoured.

    6. A touch-activated table lamp with three brightness settings (soft, moderate, and bright), six light colors, and a 360-degree control base. If you're looking for the perfect reading lamp, you have found it.

    7. A cult-favorite Squatty Potty that currently has over 10,000 reviews on Amazon. What is the purpose of it, you ask? It enables your body to mimic a squatting position that turns *ahem* longer bathroom breaks into a much easier affair.

    8. Reusable metal drinking straws for anyone looking to make eco-friendly choices that cut down on plastic waste *and* prevent their teeth from getting those dreadful coffee stains. These are perfect for both hot or iced caffeine, plus are just really darn pretty.

    9. A USB rechargeable lighter that gives up to 300 uses per single charge, plus it's butane-free and slim enough to fit into any drawer. Fare thee well, matchbooks of candles past.

    10. Cetaphil cleansing cloths you'll want for those nights in which you are way too tired to cleanse, tone, and moisturize. These remove dirt, trapped oil, and makeup (*cough* even waterproof mascara *cough*) without simultaneously stripping your face of moisture.

    11. A batter dispenser that will turn the mess of baking (READ: take a moment to picture all the cupcake mix droplets scattered around your kitchen counter) into a much easier process. Simply pour in the batter, squeeze the lever, and all of your baking mixes — everything from pancake and brownie to crepe and muffin will have been dispensed in a pinch.

    12. An outlet shelf to turn empty wall space into extra storage. Simply replace your current outlet with this one (no worries, you'll get all the mounting tools you'll need for the job) and wave hello to a permanent spot for the electric toothbrush in your bathroom. The road has been a long one.

    13. A tiered tray, because we'd *like* one of those fancy knife blocks but — alas — we haven't got the space. This space-efficient organizer will keep knives in place and help maintain their sharpness.

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

    15. A geometric tray with four interchangeable and stackable pieces that look like they were sourced from a museum. Plus, these gorgeous pieces of art (ART, I tell ya) are perfect for everything from jewelry storage to breakfast in bed.

    16. A bamboo laptop tray because working from home *should* mean working from bed. This adjustable quasi-desk makes it easy to answer those emails without having to compromise the warmth that is your fluffy comforter.

    17. Adhesive cable clips to help keep your home office clutter-free. These will prevent alllllll of your cords from tangling with one another, eventually becoming a spider web mess that you'll never be able to fix. Emphasis on the never.

    18. A lint remover capable of picking up every speck of dust, dirt, and pet hair plastered onto your furniture. Bliss = being able to sit on your couch with peace of mind knowing you won't be entirely covered in fur.

    19. Miracle-Gro food spikes you'll appreciate if you love plants, but a) weren't blessed with the advantage of a green thumb, and b) laziness is one of your defining features. These slowly release micronutrients into soil for up to two months, thus allowing indoor plants to thrive.

    20. 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.

    21. A calligraphy guide book for anyone looking to improve their penmanship *or* eventually create their own Etsy shop. These easy-to-follow instructions will turn your doodles and scribbles into a work of legible art.

    22. A splurge-worthy Hurom slow juicer to make a delicious drink from the comfort of your kitchen. Yes, it's expensive — but if you're apt to buying cold-pressed juices (which can cost upwards of $10 in NYC), than this device is absolutely worth it.

    23. An ingenious scrap collector with a wire rim that easily attaches to the edge of your countertop. Consider post-cooking clean-up a true breeze — simply scrape those potato peels and random morsels of rice right into this silicone bin.

    24. A FlexiSnake millipede not meant for the faint of heart. Use this to easily de-clog every drain in your home, but prepare for the horror you'll experience as you dig up about one million pounds of hair and built-up gunk.

    25. A finishing powder to actively blur pores and stop greasy t-zones in their tracks for a dewy finish that's not *too* dewy. And unlike most setting powders, this mattifying formula won't settle into your pores for that dreadful chalky effect.

    26. A Bliss jelly peel exfoliator because we all deserve skin softer than a baby's butt — and this delivers. Papaya and pineapple enzymes lift away dead, flaky skin to reveal a smooth canvas that allows the rest of your products to seep in more thoroughly. And the best part? It isn't irritating.

    27. An over-the-sink drying rack for my fellow city dwellers who understand the struggle of limited countertop space. This hunk of collapsible silicone-coated stainless-steel can store everything from pans to cutlery up to 50 lbs, but can easily be folded up and stored away when not in use.

    28. A genius Invisibobble that will keep your mane out of your face but won't cause any dents, meaning you’ll be able to take your hair out of your pony and the 45 minutes you spent with a hot tool won't have gone to waste.

    29. Bottle Bright cleaning tablets to 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.

    30. 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.

    31. Food grade mineral oil, because your trusty cutting board could truly use a little (or a lot of) TLC. This odorless formula helps restore and protect wood and bamboo surfaces, plus gives it a good deep clean.

    32. A dishwasher-safe handheld scraper that will get all the burnt-up food crisps permanently off your very expensive cookware set. (This handy gadget is also great at removing gum and stickers, because we love a product that boasts versatility.)

    33. A monthly subscription to give yourself the gift of quality me-time: Each planner is themed by month and has designated spots for guided bullet journaling, weekly planning, taking notes, and habit tracking.

    34. A Philips alarm clock that mimics natural light and gradually brightens over 30 minutes, meaning you'll feel as if you're waking up with the sunrise and your own internal clock as opposed to the jarring noise of a typical alarm.

    35. A bedside caddy because your nightstand is slightly too far, it's a mess containing coffee mugs and random scraps of paper, and you have no idea where the remote is. This convenient storage solution ensures that your nighttime essentials are actually within arm's reach.

    36. A toothpaste holder with a toothpaste *squeezer* to make sure you get every last minty drop trapped in that damn tube. (One reviewer even describes this as ingenious and TBH, they are not wrong.)

    37. Microfiber cloths ideal for phone, jewelry, camera lenses, smartphones, tablets, TV screens, and the list truly goes on and on. Take a moment to imagine it: A world in which your glasses aren't covered in fingerprint smudges.
