Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. An adjustable duster brush great for air conditioners, fans, and window blinds because news flash, those need to be cleaned on occasion — the amount of dust that can accumulate there is *cough* genuinely disgusting. And don't worry, cleaning said crevices requires but a few minutes of your time and just a flick or two of the wrist.

    amazon.com

    This handy dandy tool comes with five microfiber cloths, meaning you'll be able to clean your whole darn house in one sweep.

    Promising review: "This product is AMAZING! You can clean both sides of two blinds at once and grip them firmly to get ALL of the dust off. Plus, it comes with five covers, so that no matter how dirty your blinds are, you'll be able to finish dusting your whole house! I also love that you can wash the covers and don't have to waste money on refills." —Sarah

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    2. A color-changing LED string for extra lighting if your room is best described as dungeon vampire chic. This has six levels of brightness ranging from warm to light, takes minutes to install, is 32-feet long, and adds a bit of oomph to any WFH corner.

    This even has a remote control so you can adjust the light settings from your bed (or office chair).

    Promising review: "These lights were so much easier to install than I thought they'd be! The tape on the back is really strong and the lights themselves are brighter than the main light in my room. Everything was really dark and bland before, but these really made everything feel prettier than it was." —Shayna

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99.

    3. A splurge-worthy Always Pan that surpasses even the excessive amount of Instagram hype it gets. This snazzy kitchen gadget replaces eight pieces of cookware, weighs only three pounds, comes with a steamer basket and spatula nester, and is *truly* nonstick.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed, Our Place

    Promising review: "This is the best pan I have ever cooked with. The surface allows me to control the amount of olive oil used, the dome lid design is great for faster cooking without turning up the heat, and the pan itself is so beautiful I leave it out on my stovetop as decoration. I am hoping they make a small sauté pan and a three-qt sauce pan some day." —Cheryl M.

    Get it from Our Place for $145 (available in seven colors).

    4. CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion – it's about to become the *only* thing that matters in the morning (the exception being caffeine). One swipe contains hyaluronic acid and ceramides to leave your complexion feeling hydrated and supple, but the real winner here? SPF30. Your sunscreen will have been applied along with your moisturizer.

    5. A plant-based Tide Purclean laundry soap raved about by reviewers with sensitive complexions. This has a delightfully subtle honey lavender scent that won't lead to irritation, plus the eco-friendly packaging is designed with 50% less plastic but still holds enough liquid for 72 loads. Someone call Kermit and tell him it *is* easy being green, please and thank you.

    amazon.com

    It can be used on grills too!

    Promising review: "Whether you make pizza from scratch or enjoy a frozen pizza from the market, this pizza stone is essential for the best at home pizza experience. Preparing your pizza on a stone assures a crispy crust and removing the pizza from the oven, on the heated stone, assures you that it will remain warm while the slices are consumed." —Steve

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95 (available in 14" and 16" sizes).

    8. A reusable silicone holder if you adore sheet masks but *hate* that they slip off at the slightest hint of movement.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Excellent at holding other masks that slide off or dry out into your face. I can vacuum, email, cook, do other things while tending to my skincare needs. Easy to rinse and hang dry over and over again (I've used it almost daily since receiving them). Comfortable to wear (I've gotten side tracked cleaning and wearing for a couple of hours and the cream+gel mask under was STILL MOIST)!" —KV

    amazon.com

    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

    12. A set of Swedish dish cloths truly divine for wiping up spills, saving you a ton of $$$ (they can be thrown in the wash when dirty), and cutting down on waste because you won't have to purchase more paper. So in other words, a total win.

    the Swedish dish cloths
    Dropps

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these clothes! They were just what I was looking for. I felt like I was wasting paper towels all the time and I hated to use my dish sponge to wipe the counter or table. I highly recommend these, especially because they are washable!" —Francesca C.

    Get a set of three from Dropps for $16.

    13. A soap pump dispenser I have one word for: brilliant. Doing dishes in a cluttered kitchen with limited counter space is both my nightmare and reality, so this convenient gizmo (where you can squeeze soap directly onto a sponge with one hand) literally made my heart go pitter-patter when I saw it.

    amazon.com, @toponlinefinds / Via tiktok.com

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this! I leave my sponge on top and do not have to reach under the sink to get my bulky Dawn dish soap bottle from under the sink every time I need it. It looks clean and my friends that have noticed it said something about it. I highly recommend it." —Lisa Camarena

    Get it from Amazon for $9.34 (available in two colors).

    14. Brow Flick – 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).

    15. Long-handle spoons to stir any beverage to *chef's kiss* absolute perfection. Your iced coffee will taste immaculate. That artisanal cocktail in which you've put three too many scoops of sugar is going to be A-OK. Just keep stirring and listen to the ASMR sounds of metal hitting glass. I feel serene already.

    16. Zip Top silicone containers anyone who eats or cooks needs to buy, pronto. Single use plastic can't hold a candle to these must-have kitchen items: Some are designed with a flat bottom to remain open on countertops, make for easy pouring (pancake batter has met its match), and keep food fresh for a longer period of time.

    BuzzFeed / Maitland

    Promising review: "If you're looking for a set of reusable bags to reduce your waste, look no further. This Zip Top silicone set is just about perfect. The eight-piece full set comes with cups (with circular flat bottoms), dishes (with elongated flat bottoms) and bags (for easy taking to-go without taking up a bunch of room). They're airtight, and just EASY PEASY to use — aka I don't have to track down a matching lid. Half-eaten oranges, leftover crepe batter, granola, all live handily in these pretty lavender containers. The pointed sides make for effortless pouring — everything from shaking granola into my morning yogurt to dispensing thin crepe batter into a pan for a weekend breakfast.

    They're dishwasher-safe (on the top AND bottom racks), freezer-safe, AND microwave safe, so you can truly say goodbye forever to disposable bags. They haven't retained any sorts of staining or smells and wash up beautifully. At just over $11 a pop when you break it down, they're not *cheap* but when you add up box after box after box of plastic bags, you'll make up for the cost in no time flat. I haven't been ~on the go~ much in the past year (🙃), but when I do I'll definitely use these to bring snacks to the office. And they come in pretty pastel colors that personally just make me happy to look at in my fridge." —Maitland Quitmeyer, BuzzFeed Deputy Editor

    Get a set of eight from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in five colors, plus individually and in smaller sets).

    17. A Burst water flosser that will get you excited for dentist appointments thanks to how GOOD your Chiclets are about to get. This removes food and random debris that a regular toothbrush can't get, thus promoting healthier gums and fresher breath in the process — it basically cleans deeper than traditional flossing which, let's face it, you weren't doing anyway.

    18. Headquarters Exfoliating Scrub costs ~$8, but don't let the affordable price tag fool ya. This sugar and salicylic acid blend is purposely formulated for oily scalps, providing a deep refreshing clean that balances buildup so you can avoid the following dilemma: stringiness.

    This exfoliating scrub is one in a four-part collection that includes a conditioner, shampoo, and scalp mist.

    If you *don't* have oily roots but still need an exfoliating scrub, don't panic — there are different formulations for dry and balanced scalps, too.

    Get it from Headquarters for $7.50.

    19. Reusable silicone straws for guzzling down iced coffee with gusto. The secret perk of this particular set? Cleanliness! Snap closures mean you can open the straws in half to ensure they're dry and gunk-free! Just give 'em a good wipe down. No more "cleaning" brushes required.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I never thought I’d be writing a review for straws, but here we are. These are FANTASTIC. I try to be as eco-friendly as possible but was ready to give up. I’ve tried metal straws, but they are tough to clean and I don’t love metal against my teeth. I’ve tried other reusable plastic and silicone options but they don’t work for thicker drinks like smoothies. These actually address all of my issues. I’ve used them for thick smoothies, that I drink daily, and just for other everyday drinks like water. They couldn’t be easier to snap open and clean, dry, then easily snap back into shape to use again." —M. Alexandra

    Get them from Amazon for $3.99+ (available in four colors).

    20. A croc-inspired cover if your laptop is covered in nicks and scratches from alllll the years you've spent chucking it into your work tote and hoping for the best. We think it's time you finally invest in a case.

    Get it from Chic Geeks for $95 (available in 12 Mac laptop sizes).

    21. An electric frother if you spend more time watching ~fancy~ coffee being made then you do, well, drinking it. Barista-level drinks are yours at the press of a button: Pour in your milk of choice (nondairy options included), choose one out of four foam options, and that's it. That cappuccino will taste like it's been teleported fresh from Italy.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this frother so much that I’ve started giving it as gifts. Within three minutes, or less, I can make my own fancy coffee right at home. We also use it for warming milk for single servings of hot cocoa for our kids. The milk is at the perfect temp. It is easy to use, easy to clean and it looks great (not an eye sore on the counter). It makes me look forward to my morning coffee." —Jenn

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    22. Aesthetica Brow Contour Kit exceeds the expectations of reviewers with *just how much* bang you get for you buck. Pristine arches are yours with all of the following: six blendable powders, cream shadow, setting wax, highlighting powder, full length tweezers, five eyebrow stencils, and a double-ended spoolie brush.

    Promising review: "I've had many brow kits over the years (I'm kinda obsessed with them) and this one is by far the best — definitely worth the money. My cousin always asks me how I do my eyebrows so I sent her one for the holidays. She was so grateful that she sends me a selfie almost every day raving about it!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.97.

    23. A BlenderBottle shaker bottle designed with a leak-proof seal, a flip cap snap, a carrying loop, and a stainless-steel wire whisk for whipping up protein shakes in a pinch. One reviewer even combines instant coffee and water for a morning caffeine boost!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This has got to be the best $9 I've ever spent. I mix my protein shakes in it without having to touch a blender, and they come out smooth. It takes a couple of seconds at most, it's remarkably easy to clean, and the construction/materials/design's incredible. I even dropped it and the shake didn't spill. I've taken to making iced coffees in it as well. It's great for my physical job where eating a big lunch slows me down and makes me tired. This way I can have a big shake instead. Same amount of calories, and I keep my energy up on my 12-hour shifts. Seriously, I feel like they could easily charge double what they are charging. Scoop this one up and you won't regret it." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.88+ (available in 14 colors).

    24. 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.

    the echo dot
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I absolutely love it! Bought to use as a radio/ambient noise device as I fall asleep, but now realize the capabilities FAR exceeded what I initially purchased it for, so I also use it as an alarm clock, Bluetooth speaker for my iPad, personal assistant ('Alexa, add milk to my shopping list'), Amazon Music speaker (which I never used until buying this). The sound quality is really good, especially considering its small size and relatively budget-friendly price. I definitely recommend this to anyone, and if you’re a Prime member... WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR! Don’t even 'add to cart,' just click 'buy now' and watch your life get simpler." —Dave S

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (originally $49.99).

    25. A dishwasher-safe silicone strainer to drain your favorite meal with total ease — and by favorite meal, I obviously mean pasta with a side of more pasta and a generous helping of mac n cheese. Just clip this attachment on and voila, your work here is almost done.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "So easy to use! Just clip on the side of any pot, pan, bowl, whatever, and it does all the work for you! Stays put and keeps the solids inside the container while straining out the liquid. Best kitchen gadget I ever purchased for myself." —Carrie Courtney

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in five colors).

    26. A stainless-steel odor absorber that will rid your hands of any pungent cooking or "It's my night to wash the dishes" scents. Whether you're chopping onions or cleaning fish, a quick wash with this bar, and voilà! Your hands are now odor-free.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I always thought it was a hoax that a piece of steel could remove kitchen odors (like from chopping onions or garlic). I am happy to report that it totally works. Handle all the stinky food you want — even non food odors — and then wash your hands with this steel bar. No soap. No perfume. It just removes the odor nearly instantly. Little bar is reasonably priced as well. Best gadget I've bought in years." —Deb

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (also available in a very cute garlic shape).

    27. PanOxyl Acne Foaming Wash screeches "get out" to pesky pimples thanks to a hefty helping of benzoyl peroxide — this bottle contains a whopping 10%, to be exact. Consider acne good as gone when placing this maximum strength formula in your medicine cabinet.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product is amazing with amazing results. I have adult hormonal acne problems and this wash clears it up. It does dry out the skin so monitoring the dryness is necessary. I use this with a light moisturizer to help balance my skin. I definitely recommend this wash for people struggling to clear up stubborn acne." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.48.

    28. A grout cleaner that clings to silicone sealants (so the thin area around your shower head, in between your tiles, etc.) and effectively banishes mold and mildew to the pits of heck forever, which is where they rightfully belong. Someone contact Dante and let him know we've got another inferno contender.

    Promising review: "You guys. I’m embarrassed to even show you this. The grout around our tub was DISGUSTING. It was never caulked right and it got gross very quickly. I would scrub. The cleaning lady would scrub. It would get worse. Well, I came across this in a BuzzFeed list, and this stuff made me curious. I don’t know why it doesn’t have 10,000 good reviews. Seriously. All I did was squeeze it on and walk away. I let it sit overnight. Check this out. Buy it. Like today." —KarynB

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    29. 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.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was skeptical about buying this at first, but it's AWESOME. It works like a charm! Super easy to use and does exactly what it says. It made my microwave look brand-new again!" —Lisa

    Not a runner? Not a problem. Reviewers also swear that these socks are amazing for anyone who works on their feet all day.

    Promising review: "I’ve been wearing compression socks to work for years and loved them, but these are the first pairs of compression socks I’ve tried for running. I had been having some leg cramping on my long runs so I decided to try them and will never go back to short athletic socks again. I love the lack of fatigue I get from the pressure from these socks and the decrease of post-run pain. I will be wearing these when I cross the finish line at my first marathon this October!" —jamerz82

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this! The style is nice and the baskets are large, so you can put a lot of stuff in them. It was easy to put together and my son hung it. I moved the chalkboard markers and hung them from the front of each basket instead of in the back, which looks cool. Also did two hooks per basket on either side which I liked better than lining them up across the bottom. I was looking for a fruit basket and came upon this. So glad I did because it's awesome!" —Deb Cip

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    34. A multi-purpose basket that expands to fit your sink *and* collapses so it can be shoved right back into a tiny kitchen cabinet. Cleverly designed with draining holes, this tool is perfect for straining pasta, washing fruits and veggies, or even drying some dishes. You know the metal colander you have now? The one that takes up more space than it's worth? Ahem. We think it's on its way out.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I don't want a kitchen sink without this tool ever again. I love this! I have had it for a week and it just works for my needs! I ended up getting it for silverware and other small utensils because something got stuck in the garbage disposal somehow. However, it also work for rinsing vegetables and fruits when I have dishes in the sink to clean. I don’t have a dishwasher so being able to separate things is so useful. The size is adjustable and that makes it even more worth it!" —Jocelyn

    35. Diva Stuff Anti-Bacterial Pillow Mist lulls you to sleep with a divine lavender scent and, get this, a few spritzes will obliterate the acne-causing bacteria that's built up on your bedding — because while we know we should switch our pillow cases more often... come on, who has the time?

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My boyfriend and I were having a tough time agreeing on nightstand lamps. I prefer brighter ones that illuminate the room whereas he prefers warmer tones that give off just enough light and don't bother his eyes. These have been the perfect compromise! The dimmable white light offers the brightness I prefer while he uses the more yellow tones. They are pretty basic style-wise and take up very little space." —Beth

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99 (originally $44.99).

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.
