    35 Products To Help Solve All The Gross Problems In Your Life

    Don't let mildewy showers, stinky dishwashers, and pet stains on the carpet keep ruining your day.

    1. A TubShroom so you don't have to deal with the disgusting act of snaking a drain when your tub gets clogged yet again. This lil' guy catches all of your hair before it heads down the drain, and all you have to do is clean it out after every shower.

    2. An earwax removal kit if you're having a hard time hearing because of all the tough, dried wax building up in your ear. Will you be shocked at how much comes out? Probably. Will you be able to hear so much better? Absolutely!

    3. An air purifier to remove all of the dust, mold, pet hair, and any other microscopic nastiness that's floating through the air and making us sneeze.

    4. Or a bottle of allergen spray that removes up to 93% of common allergens that live on surfaces and in the air. You probably don't even want to think about cockroach allergens floating around your house, and thanks to this spray, you won't have to anymore!

    5. A hairbrush cleaning tool designed to get every last bit of dust and hair out of your bristles. No one wants to run all that gunk over their hair when brushing it!!

    6. An oven scrub cleaner for anyone who can't remember the last time you gave the inside of your oven a deep clean. It's time for that burnt cheese that's been stuck to the bottom since 2019 to finally go away.

    This oven scrub is made out of 100% plant and mineral-derived ingredients. To clean your oven, apply the scrub over the oven surface including the interior glass, scrub with a metallic or scouring sponge, then use a damp microfiber cloth to wipe the surface.

    Everneat is a small business based in Fairfield, Connecticut that specializes in natural cleaning products and microfiber cloths.

    Promising review: "This is the first time in my 50+ years that I have actually enjoyed cleaning my oven. And no, I am not joking! This product is effective, easy to work with, smells amazing, AND I only used a tiny amount of product!!! I don't think I could imagine a way to improve this product. Highly, highly recommend it!!! Well worth any wait." —Diane Coury

    7. A fruit fly trapper if every time you pick up a banana from your fruit bowl, you disturb dozens of these pesky little insects that are living rent-free in your house.

    8. A garbage disposal cleaner to use if there's a funky smell coming from down your sink and you'd like to clear that up ASAP. Just shove one of the packets down there, turn on your disposal, and watch in amazement as the cleaner foams up and chomps away all the grunge.

    9. A Luv Scrub mesh exfoliator that is much more sanitary than loofahs that breed bacteria. This is made of 100% nylon that dries fast, and you only have to replace it every 18 months. (Did you know loofahs should be replaced every three to four WEEKS?!)

    10. A box of extra-large dog poop bags because even the thought of my hand accidentally getting dirty while picking up my dog's mess is enough to send a shiver down my spine. Thankfully, these strong and thick bags make picking up dog poop as pleasant as possible.

    11. A bottle of hand sanitizer to keep on you at all times in case you have to touch a subway pole and want to immediately kill all the germs on your hands. Formulated with organic aloe vera and vitamins B5 and E, it'll actually keep your hands hydrated instead of drying them out.

    12. A tongue cleaner if you've tried everything and you still can't get rid of your stinky breath. This will scrape away bacteria that's trapped on your tongue, and you'll be left wondering why you haven't gotten one of these sooner.

    13. A razor bump treatment to banish those painful, itchy bumps that pop up post-shaving. It'll also help fight against those pesky ingrown hairs.

    14. A bottle of anti-dandruff shampoo if you're sick and tired of finding little flakes of your scalp on your shoulders. Also, people with dandruff know how dang itchy the problem is, and this is formulated to keep those scalp scratchies at bay.

    15. A drill brush attachment to scrub off even the most caked-on stains and soap scum on your shower door, tiles, and floor. Have an old, nasty stain on your couch that you can't stand looking at anymore? This baby will take it right out.

    16. A toenail brace that prevents your nail from growing into your skin and creating an awful, painful ingrown nail. As someone who's struggled with ingrown toenails getting INFECTED (*shudders*), let me tell you — this is a miracle product!

    18. A makeup brush cleaner, because when's the last time you washed those brushes that have been sitting there on your bathroom counter, collecting germs and dust and bacteria?

    22. A trash can if you're sick of your car basically being a dumpster on wheels. The hard part will be teaching your kids to throw their trash in this and not on the car floor like they usually do...

    25. A packet of pimple patches to extract all the gunk that sits right under the skin whenever you have a whitehead. Place one of these on your breakouts before going to bed, and you'll wake up to a noticeably smaller zit!

    26. A bottle of mold and mildew remover spray so powerful, it could lift the filth from an old abandoned house. Or that one suspiciously stained corner of your shower.

    27. A callus remover that will defeat even the toughest, roughest, and hardest of calluses. Because we're about to head into sandal season, it might be a good idea to freshen up those cracked heels!
