I put the drops in, waited, then flushed my ear out with very warm water, and OH MY GOSH... The gunk that came flowing out onto the towel blew my mind! It's amazing that I was ever able to hear at all with all that crap in my ear. This stuff works." —CD

    Promising review: "Due to prior experiences with other whitening strips, I always deal with tooth sensitivity even after the first use. Naturally now, I only use this pen every other day thinking I was going to deal with the same issue, and surprisingly I don't. I actually really like the way it whitens my teeth and love the fact that I'm not dealing with any tooth sensitivity pains." —Claudia Garcia

    Promising review: "I have tried everything to keep my glasses from fogging with my mask, and this product is by far the best. I'm sorry I waited so long to purchase it. I live in the Florida Keys and do a lot of diving and snorkeling, and it works fabulous for my dive mask also. I would highly recommend Optix 55 Fog Gone. Great price; also, I think this bottle will last a very long time." —Bebe

    Wad-Free is a small biz that was launched during the pandemic. Cyndi, the founder, learned CAD (computer-aided design) to create the pads. 

    Promising review: "Wow, you wonder if things like this really work and well, I can absolutely confirm it does! First, I was impressed that the package came with two of the devices because I was only expecting one. So there was one for the fitted sheet, and [one for] the flat sheet. Finally, I tried it out, and my sheets not only did NOT wad up, they came out of the dryer feeling fresher, feeling more dry, and unwrinkled! I will be buying a set of these for each of my immediate family members and close friends! What a great gift!" —katy

    Promising review: "After using Lights, Camera, Lashes by Tarte for the past year, I got tired of breaking the bank over mascara. My sister suggested Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect, and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. It provides dramatic length and great volume. I can honestly say I can’t stop looking at my eyelashes in the mirror every single day because of how awesome they look. Also, it is very long-wearing. I go from an eight-hour workday right to the gym and sweat like crazy...and this stuff doesn’t budge! I love it!" —Carrie E Miller

    Reviewer holding the 'Did you feed the dog tracker' in hand

    Promising review: "This is an awesome product! There are four of us that were working together to feed the dogs. It simplified everything, because I no longer have to text to see if anyone had fed them every morning. Now I just to see if it's green, and if it's not, I feed them and indicate it. We all love it so much!" —Toni Deegan

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    Promising review: "I'm in love with this! My entire family (with the exception of my husband, who doesn't like spice) reaches for this bottle of Mike's many times a week. We've tried it on biscuits, cornbread, fried chicken, bacon (AMAZING), and more. Mike's offers just the right kick of heat to balance the delicious sweetness of the honey. I plan on keeping this in my pantry." —MichiganTraveler

    9. Reusable silicone dishwashing gloves so you can do your dishes every day instead of pretending you're letting them ~soak~. It will protect your manicure, keep your hands dry, and save you $$$ in the long run. Need I say more?

    Reviewer wearing dishwashing gloves

    Promising review: "I was a bit skeptical when purchasing these gloves, but the reviews were excellent, so I went ahead and bought them. I am so glad I did. I have small hands, but these gloves fit fine. Two things I really love about these gloves: 1) Water does not seep inside (pet peeve of mine), and 2) they are easy to get on and off repeatedly (second pet peeve is when you need to wait until the gloves dry to get your hands back in them). The gloves do an excellent job cleaning the dishes and kitchen. I have not used them to do other rooms in the house but will be purchasing another pair to tackle other cleaning jobs." —Babs

    Get it from Amazon for $6.98.

    10. Wood polish and conditioner that'll ensure you get your apartment security deposit back. The blend of carnauba wax, beeswax, and oils will restore your hardwood floors, wood cabinets, doors, tables, and antiques so they can look showroom-new again.

    Promising review: "This product is worth every penny and goes a very long way. We had tired, oak floors that haven’t been refinished in over 50 years. They were dried out and washed out. This product took away decades in an hour with a few rags and a lot of elbow grease. One word of caution: Floors are very slippery for a few days after. Be very careful walking around. Bonus, it smells amazing. It has a natural orange peel smell that is fresh and clean and not at all harsh or chemical. Highly, highly recommend." —GMD

    Get it from Amazon for $8.44+ (available in three sizes).

    11. Hydrocolloid acne pimple patches help you stop picking at your face! These gently suck the gunk out of your blemishes and stop you from damaging your skin, which can cause acne scars (and further inflammation).

    Reviewer before and after photo using acne patch

    Promising review: "I do not claim to understand the science behind these tiny miracles, but they have changed my life. I spent my workday looking forward to going home and putting one of these bad boys on my newly erupted Mt. Zit, and the overnight results were shocking. Not only is it grossly satisfying, but it saved me several days of walking around with a bloody crater in my face because my previous method of dealing with unsightly blemishes was to pick, pick, pick." —Adg

    12. A pack of generic melamine sponges that reviewers say are a dupe for the beloved Mr. Clean Magic Erasers — but for wayyyy less.

    Tom Vellner / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "As good as Mr. Clean Magic Erasers but half the price. They clean so many surfaces better than anything. We use them at the bar and clean our chalkboards, metal sinks and ice wells, beer coolers, FRP backsplash walls — and even graffiti in the bathrooms comes off more easily with these than other cleaning products. I took one home and cleaned my shower faster and more easily than with bottles of shower cleaner. Highly recommended." —Stephen Brandau

    13. All-natural water bottle cleaning tablets that require no scrubbing at all. It's perfect for those stained containers, dishes, and mugs.

    Reviewer dirty tumble on the left, a soapy tumble in the middler, and a clean tumbler on the right

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. Bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and 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 even scrubbing. They look brand new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much that I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING." —Amazon Customer

    14. A TubShroom Drain Hair Catcher which will save you $$$ on plumbing. This fits into most drains, collects all that fallen hair, plus is as easy to remove and clean as it is to pop in.

    Promising review: "I shed so much hair, and it has always been an issue when it comes to showering! I used to try to catch the hairs before it went to the drain in which I would later have to clean once clogged, and now I encourage and move them towards the drain and my TubShroom! It truly is amazing, and the silicone material allows it to not rust like the old metal tub sink screens. It makes cleaning so much easier, and I am amazed every time. It even caught my dog's hair, and he has short, thin hairs!!! Highly, highly recommend this for every home." —S.K.M

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in six colors).

    15. An apple/pear slicer to take the hassle out of apple pie or peach cobbler prepping, because it chops fruit into eight even slices. Simply place the device on top of a ripe Granny Smith, and use the safety handles to push down. The blades even cut out the core so you can immediately get to baking.

    Reviewer's apple slicer in use on peach

    The brand also offers a banana and egg cutter that have over 2,500+ positive reviews as well! All three slicers are dishwasher safe.

    Promising review: "I love the easy grip handles and how easily the sharp metal cuts through the apple, leaving the core cleanly separated. If you buy an apple corer/slicer, be sure to get one that has the folding bottom (which also serves as a safety cover) to help complete the cut all the way through, like this one has. Your apple slicing should be frustration free. Not only do you get eight perfect, equally sized slices, but you get it done in less than 10 seconds. I can't think of many $10 products that can deliver this much happiness." —R Bedford

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    16. An aromatherapy migraine stick with peppermint, spearmint, and lavender essential oils. Simply roll the applicator on your forehead and temples for a cooling relief.

    Katy Herman / Via BuzzFeed, Yi Yang / Via BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "OMG, finally something that works! I've had tension and migraine headaches for around 20 years. I've tried everything: over-the-counter medication, prescription medication, pain injections, going to the chiropractor, etc. This topical oil has given me relief for nearly six weeks now. I've only had two or three headaches in that time, and they were mild. I've already ordered more so I have some in my car and at home, and I bought some for two of my friends who suffer from chronic migraines. I would recommend this product to anyone with migraines — it's phenomenal." —Mary D.

    The three-in-one avocado slicer is machine washable.

    Promising review: "Avocado? Yes, please! This tool is awesome. Easy to cut open the fruit. Pit remover works well; just push onto the pit and give it a twist, and the pit pops right out. The best part is the slicer. Makes beautiful slices for a great presentation (see attached photo of slices — OK, one side came out perfect; I kind of gummed up the other side). The tool can then be used to scrape any remaining fruit out of the skin. Really happy I bought this tool!" —NPR Man

    EcualyptusBlooms / Etsy

    I've personally hung up a bundle of eucalyptus branches in my shower and can confirm it really is a game changer — it makes every shower experience feel refreshing. So I can only imagine how lovely this sachet is in its place. A lot less mess, but all the benefits! Added bonus? EucalyptusBlooms is a woman-owned small business based in Charlotte, North Carolina.

    Promising review: "LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product! The second I opened our mailbox, the smell from the triple-sealed mailing package was simply heavenly! What a treat! EucalyptusBlooms is THE best!" —Robbie Weber

    20. Bioré Deep Cleansing Pore Strips dig deep within your pores to remove dirt and oil. Those yucky blackheads are no match for these babies — so wave bye-bye, because enlarged pores are now officially a thing of the past.,

    Promising review: "These deep-cleansing pore strips are amazing! I warm up my face with hot water and leave areas for application wet, and then apply the strips! Having acne-prone skin, this really removes all the blackheads!! I also take a face strip and cut it in half for chin and forehead." —kat12

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    21. Tend Skin Solution tackles razor bumps and ingrowns, leaving you with impeccably smooth skin. After applying this, no one will be able to tell whether you chose laser or razor — it can even eradicate redness that occurs after waxing and electrolysis.

    Promising Review: "I have been having a terrible problem with ingrown hairs on my bikini area. I have tried several products, including a topical prescription from my dermatologist. The topical from the dermatologist helped a little, but not to my satisfaction. I found Tend Skin while scrolling through Amazon. I did not have high hopes, but figured it could not hurt to try. Within one week, I have no ingrown hairs whatsoever. I am honestly amazed by this product." —Cheri R

    22. An electric lighter that will never lose its ~spark~ because it uses ion technology to keep candles and birthday cakes lit. The flameless tool is rechargeable, plus wind- and splash-proof.

    BuzzFeed/Emma Lord, BuzzFeed/Heather Braga

    Promising review: "I’m not sure about battery life because it’s rechargeable. My daughter has one; it’s been over a year, and she’s never charged hers. I will NEVER go back to the traditional, long flame lighters. This thing is AMAZING! It’s worth the money. I burn candles every day. This will be an awesome gift for any candle-loving person. Very easy to use." —JMR

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in five colors).

    23. An acrylic Squatty Potty toilet stool that's a necessity once you learn that there's a proper way to ~go~. This simple device is also translucent, so it fits in with any decor.

    Promising review: "This thing is SLEEK! I bought this for my new home's main floor guest bath. We wanted to provide guests with the convenience of the Squatty Potty without the eyesore of the white 7" one. I feel like if Kim and Kanye had a Squatty Potty, it would be this one." —Durga D

    This TikTok-famous paste can clean literally ANY mess, whether it's in your bathroom, kitchen, basement, or anywhere in between.

    Promising review: "Amazing product. 99% all chemicals, no toxic odor. Shower-wall hard-water stains completely wiped out. I used other products on my 10-year-old oven door, and it never came as clean. First try, I wiped on, wiped off. (Recommended at least five minutes.) Second try, I applied Pink and left it over night. Baked on grit was softened enough that I could use a spoon to scrap. End result...BIG DIFFERENCE. By far the best versatile, nontoxic, gentle abrasive product. I would love a case so I could go crazy." —ap808

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in packs of one or two).

    25. Double-sided antibacterial MakeUp Eraser cloths so you can stop wasting money on disposable cotton rounds that only do half the job.

    Promising review: "I cannot recommend this product enough! It takes off all of my makeup, even my eyeliner, in a gentle way that never irritates my skin. I've had my oldest cloth for three years, and it still works. It's definitely a good investment." —edawgie

    26. Rubbermaid produce-saving containers to extend the shelf life of those in-season fresh fruits and veggies that you just sliced! These antimicrobial pouches are sealed tight, so moisture won't ruin your fresh veggies. You can eat them right out of the bag and toss your leftovers back in the fridge.

    BuzzFeed/Natalie Brown

    Read our in-depth review of these produce-saving containers.

    Promising review: "LOVE LOVE LOVE these! We buy only organic produce, which does not tend to last very long, and when you pay as much as we do for organic, you don't want it going bad so fast. My favorite thing about these is that it keeps my lettuce crisp and fresh for weeks, not days. I've been able to buy bunches of lettuce and keep them in the fridge for several weeks. I keep the second container for strawberries, asparagus, blueberries, etc., and it keeps them fresh for way longer now. Not only that, but it prevents them from molding after only a few days, so I'm not worried about having to eat my strawberries in two days now. Will definitely be buying more in the future. Totally worth every penny and super easy to wash and dry." —Jessica

    27. Lavinso Foot Exfoliation Peeling Mask sloughs off dead skin and calluses so your feet feel and look as soft as a baby's bottom. No scrubbing needed — just slip your cuties into these booties for intense exfoliation and a ton of moisture.

    Promising Review: "My poor feet have been extremely neglected ever since I was pregnant two years ago. This was the first time I really ever had very rough, hard heels and 'old'-looking feet — so bad that I didn't even want to have a pedicure or wear sandals. Anyway, these foot peels were super easy to use, and boy are they effective. It was the fourth day that my feet began to peel — very strange! Totally painless. The new skin coming through was very soft, like new. I would totally recommend. My sister and mother have requested their boxes." —Ally CHR

    28. A rust stain remover spray that will do the hard work for you — no elbow grease required. This spray breaks down rust so you'll only need to give your shower a quick swipe, and you're done.

    Promising review: "I used it on our tubs, toilets, sinks, and shower. It took one bottle of this stuff to achieve the same result as three bottles of other brands. I will buy this again hands down. I just sprayed, walked away for a few minutes, and wiped and rinsed." —Carrie D.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.12.

    29. A jewelry cleaning pen to get your precious stones shining brighter than the sun.


    The solution is nontoxic, and it comes with a small cleaning brush.

    Promising review: "ABSOLUTELY THE BEST JEWELRY CLEANER HANDS DOWN!!! I have a ton of jewelry — a diamond tennis bracelet, 14-karat rings and earrings, precious stones, pearls, and vermeil, too. I cleaned my expensive pieces, and they sparkled like they never have; the pearls' luster was so vibrant that I was in awe. The one piece that sealed the deal is a Sleeping Beauty turquoise and diamond ring I have. The diamonds are OK quality, but after cleaning it, it shimmers and twinkles like it never has. Cleans vermeil beautifully too!" —tammy

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95.

    30. A dishwasher cleaner for the gunk from your dirty dishes that doesn't just magically disappear — it gets stuck in tubes and pipes (kind of like how my little brother cleans his room by stuffing everything in his closet). Anyway, just add this cleaner to the machine, and it will remove water, grease, detergent, and food scraps.

    Promising review: "After using this product, I am happy to report that my $5 investment saved me over $500. I was ready to replace my dishwasher due to super-cloudy glasses, residue, and dishes just not getting clean. Then, I became aware that the water softener was no longer doing its job, so I had the rental company replace it. Dishwasher performance improved somewhat. I decided to do two more loads before deciding to purchase a new one. Then I saw a product test review for Affresh. I was ordering some stuff from Amazon anyway, so I added that to my order. When it came, I tossed one of the tablets into the bottom of the full machine per the instructions and ran the regular cycle. I did not expect the results I got! The glassware that I thought was permanently etched and ruined came out like new. Same with cutlery. The difference is unbelievable. I will use this faithfully every month, as recommended. I can even put it on my subscribe and save order so I will get a new pack every six months. I am amazed!" —Sheila
