    1. A biodegradable vegan dish block that can cut through grease and grime all over your home. Use the sudsy, dye- and fragrance-free formula to wash your dishes, spot clean your carpets and laundry, remove adhesive residue, and more. A single bar can last more than a month!

    2. A dishwasher indicator so the status of your dishes is always immediately apparent. No more popping it open and giving the air a quick sniff to see if you actually ran it last night or not.

    3. A pack of cleaning tablets you can use on water bottles, carafes, coffee pots, and anything else that could use more than a quick rinse with water.

    4. A set of 30 adhesive spice grips so you can clear a whole shelf and move your collection to a cabinet door instead. There's no natural high quite like figuring out ways to use dead space!

    5. A dome-shaped drain hair catcher to suck up all of your fallen strands before they join forces to create the clog of all clogs.

    6. A lavender-scented carpet refresher with the power to neutralize foul odors all around your home. Sprinkle it liberally on rugs, upholstery, mattresses, or dissolve it in warm water and use it to wipe down counters. Either way, you'll enjoy a big ol' whiff of fresh fragrance afterwards.

    7. A set of six cable clips so you can wrangle all of your chargers and avoid having to climb under your bed or desk to hunt down MIA cords.

    8. A pack of dishwasher cleaning tablets that can cut through lime and mineral build-up like no one's business. Used once a month, the septic-safe formula will keep your dishwasher blissfully clean and odor-free.

    9. A handheld knife sharpener so you can slice through Coke cans like they do on infomercials or chop through a pineapple next time one happens to fall out of thin air just like you're playing Fruit Ninja. (Don't actually do that though – that's dangerous.)

    10. A hand-forged wall hook to post up right by your front door so you have a reliable place to store your keys and mask. It'll speed up your whole "phone, wallet, keys... oh, and mask!" routine as you head out the door.

    11. A washable sponge with a seriously shocking lifespan. According to reviewers, when washed and rotated in and out of use, they can last upwards of a year!

    12. And, to go with that, a flexible sink caddy where you can store sponges and scrub brushes so you don't have to fish them out of murky dishwater. Since the holder loops around your faucet, you don't have to rely on flimsy suction cups, either.

    13. A pair of tube squeezers guaranteed to extract every last drop of toothpaste so you can work smarter, not harder. No more fruitless wringing or throwing away extra product.

    14. A fume-free cleaner ready to erase years of baked-on drippings from the bottom of your oven. Some of them may be from you, others may be from previous tenants (or your children who've now gone off to college), but they're all gettin' wiped away now.

    15. A beauty spatula, because you spent $40 on that color-matching foundation and you'll be damned if even one drop goes to waste.

    16. A set of minimalist labels that not only give your pantry a major aesthetic upgrade, but ensure you always know what you're reaching for.

    17. An adjustable , three-blade blind duster capable of cleaning the grimiest blinds — we're talking top and bottom — in one fell swoop. This way, you won't be engulfed by a cloud of dust every time you crack them open.

    18. A pair of charcoal shoe deodorizers designed to eliminate the funk that emanates from your ballet flats. Look, they're super comfortable, but they also hold onto odors like it's their job!

    19. A pack of reusable "paper" towels you can use and wash and use and wash for years to come. Forget going through an entire roll of one-and-done paper towels just for a single OJ spill — just one of these guys will get the job done.

    20. A set of four sheet fasteners that are basically like suspenders for your mattress, because nothing ruins a morning like having the corner of your fitted sheet pop off as you roll over.

    21. A cutlery organizer smartly designed to save a buttload of space. Sick of fishing around a jam-packed drawer on the search for your favorite fork? Give it a cozy, reliable place to call home.

    22. An automatic lavender-scented toilet bowl cleaner that turns every flush into a mini cleaning sesh. The gel formula lasts up to two weeks and as it gradually dissolves, it takes lime scale build-up and toilet ring stains with it.

    23. A sheet of stick-on sound dampeners because *some* of your roommates close cabinet doors with WAY more force than necessary and you're sick of the noise.

    24. A lil' gap-cleaning brush you can use to dig out the crud (dust, pollen, food crumbs) that accumulates around your windowsills and door tracks.

    25. A pack of pre-moistened screen cleaning cloths so you can give your TV (or tablet or desktop or... you get it) a little TLC before you sit down and watch some TLC.

    26. An Angry Mama microwave cleaner that, once filled with water and a dash of vinegar, will steam clean the grimiest of appliances. Hot Pocket grease, butter splatters, and burnt popcorn smells are no match for her.

    27. A scratch-free scraping tool because the stickers on those TJ Maxx candles aren't going to remove themselves and you just painted your nails yesterday.

    28. A handy "did you feed the dog?" sliding system so you'll be able to keep track of Sparky's meals. Look, the dog is a master manipulator and without it, he will con you into feeding him a second dinner.

    29. A smart funnel that makes it easy and mess-free to transfer the last drops of any slow-moving liquid. Sick of throwing away hand soap dispensers with a little bit left in the bottom just because you're too impatient for them to drain into your new bottle? Check this baby out.

    30. And a silicone dish brush built to outlast the sponges and nylon brushes you've come to rely on. Grease is no match for this guy — and it won't get moldy or stinky like your other waterlogged tools, either.
