    Promising review: "THE BEST silverware storage organizer compartments I’ve EVER had in my entire life! We have a large family and therefore have the need for a lot of silverware. Unfortunately we have a small shallow and narrow drawer in our house but it was always full! Constantly disorganized before, and now amazingly organized. The only reason I would hesitate would be if your drawer is not adequately deep, but from reading reviews people said if they had 3.5 inches of depth it would be just fine which is exactly what I have and there’s adequate drawer depth for me. I measured my skinny drawer and realized I still had space for two units and took the plunge and am so glad I did! Silverware goes quickly from the dishwasher straight into the drawer and you don’t have to stack perfectly to put a lot in!!! ADD IT TO YOUR CART NOW, you’ll be glad you did if you have the same problem as we did!" —oceantiff

    2. A stove gap cover to prevent crumbs or spills from collecting in that annoying spot between your stove and your counter. Messy cooks: this one's made for you.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    The gap covers are dishwasher safe and can also be easily cleaned with a damp cloth. You can also cut the gap covers to perfectly fit the measurements of your kitchen.

    Promising review: "I didn’t realize how nasty it was under my stove until we pulled it out to fix it. There were things under there I knew I hadn’t cooked in years. These little rubber flaps help and are easy to wipe down. They just fit right in between the stove and the counter. I worried they’d be noticeable, but once I got used to them they just fit with the stove. I hardly notice they are there!" —Scarlett

    Get a two pack from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in two colors).

    3. A cord holder because trying to untangle a phone charger that's in a huge clump is one of life's biggest annoyances, especially if your phone's about to die!

    4. A bottle of stain-and-odor eliminator that you should always have on hand in case your pet leaves a little ~present~ for you on your carpet or favorite rug. No more stressing that the stain (and smell) won't go away.

    amazon.com

    The spray is chlorine-free, color-safe, and safe to use around children and pets. You can use it on carpets, floors, furniture, clothing, litter boxes, kennels — literally anywhere your pet has an accident!

    Promising review: "We have three large dogs, and our house is constantly either full of fur, dog toys, mysterious puddles, vomit from yesterday's trash excavation, or your bi-monthly bout of explosive diarrhea. If you're hesitant on the price, which I was at first, your desperation to remove your carpet of brown and yellow spots will be rewarded by giving this a try. When I tell you this stuff is MAGIC IN A BOTTLE, I'm not exaggerating. Vomit, urine, diarrhea, butt juice. I know what you're thinking...'What the hell kinda dogs do they own?!' R & R got all of it out of the carpet. I'll say it again...MAGIC IN A BOTTLE. $20 for magic? Do it. We will never buy another product again for as long as we both shall live. Or at least as long as we have carpet." —Benjamin Poon

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

    Promising review: "I purchased these bags because I have quite a walk from my garage to my house. These bags are AMAZING! I stuff them full and they never tear. I also get water by the gallon and these bags hold them. They make my life easier!! Try these bags, you will love them!" —MB

    Each trap lasts up to 45 days. Just place the traps where you've spotted fruit flies before and empty half of the lure bottle into the trap.

    Promising review: "Our home was infested with fruit flies. As a household of minimal fresh produce and a mostly nitrate rich menu, we were confused and horrified when these tiny, evil bastards took over our house. These apple traps are LEGIT. Within an hour or less they had captured a good amount of flies. I just bought more." —MotherofChaos

    Get two traps from Amazon for $5.88.

My goal has been to cut down on single-use plastics so a friend recommended these tabs. I love that I can throw them in my travel bag and use them the whole trip. I liked it so much I use them every day now. I highly recommend them if you are looking for an eco-friendly alternative. Great product, great company!" —SUNNY858

    Get 62 tablets from Huppy for $12 (available in peppermint or charcoal mint flavors; can also get 248 tablets every four months for $32).

    Amazon

    It makes cooking and baking so much easier, and your measurements will be more accurate! The set comes with 1-cup, 2-cup, and 4-cup angled measuring cups.

    Promising review: "This is a very inventive design for something that cooks use every day. I originally purchased the 2-cup model of the OXO measuring cup and liked it so much that I decided to buy the set. These are so much more usable than the Pyrex or Anchor traditional glass measuring cups because they so much easier to read. I have some Anchor measuring cups that are 20+ years old and the red markings have faded and are really hard to see. Since the OXO can be read from the top, the measuring cup can rest on the counter for accurate measurement. No more holding it up in the air like a mad scientist measuring out liquids! Even the rubberized handle is well designed. Since these are made from clear plastic, they are very lightweight. The handle goes all the way to the counter to stabilize the measuring cup. It's very well thought out." —Bocaboy

    Get the set from Amazon for $19.95.

    11. A travel belt for attaching your heavy purse or backpack to the top of your rolling suitcase so you can give your body some relief as you rush through the airport.

    Cincha Travel

    Promising review: "Love this! I am constantly struggling between holding my jacket and two carry-ons. This is the perfect solution! I can’t wait to start using it when I’m back to regular business travel." —Allison

    Get it from Cincha Travel for $35 (available in 15 colors, can be monogrammed for an additional $12).

    12. A multi-purpose cleaner if it usually takes you half your evening to scrape off burnt food and grease left behind on your glass stovetop. This will leave it looking shinier than ever — minimal elbow grease required.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was using another cooktop cleaner and decided to try this one. What a huge difference!! I have a white glass top stove and it is a lot of work to keep it clean. I always had to scrub and most times use a razor blade to clean it. This was half the effort!!! And I like the smell also. It's always great when you find a product that makes your life easier." —LindaPBFL

    Get it from Amazon for $7.97.

    13. A set of packing cubes that makes the dreaded act of packing for a trip so much easier. You'll be so amazed at how much you can put in your suitcase when you use these!

    amazon.com

    The set comes with one small, one medium, one large, and one extra-large cube and a laundry bag.

    Promising review: "I bought these for an 8-day trip and was really pleased with how the cubes performed; I was able to fit all my clothes (packing both work clothes and regular clothes) with no issue, and having everything in their own compartments made everything easy to find, sort, and repack, a lifesaver when moving from hotel to hotel. The cubes and zippers seem quite durable, and I liked having the laundry bag as well. Overall, tremendously happy with these — great value for the price." —Drew Morrison

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in 10 colors).

    14. A honeycomb drawer organizer so you can see all of your underwear or socks as soon as you open your drawers in the morning. Marie Kondo would be so proud.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I needed something to organize my socks, saw this, and thought it looked like it would work. I live in the Pacific NW where our winters aren't particularly frigid, but they ARE cold and damp, so I tend to wear a lot of wool or thicker acrylic knit socks. This is exactly what I needed. Size is super, and it's easy to put together once I figured out that the buttons are easier to get into the slots if you DON'T try to push them but instead rock them from side to side. Really, I couldn't be happier with these. Much better than I expected, and exactly what I need." —L. Mountford

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sets of two, four, or eight).

    15. A set of airtight food storage containers to keep your dry goods fresher for longer. They also come with labels you can place on the front of the containers so you can instantly find what you're looking for.

    reviewer's photo of many plastic storage bins with labels that are sitting on a shelving unit
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The price is great for these large, airtight storage containers. I buy a lot of ingredients in bulk and love that they fit in these containers. For reference, I was able to hold 10 lbs of sugar, a little less than 15 lbs of brown rice and sweet rice, and 7–8 lbs of flour in the 6.5 L size. They are airtight, as I can flip my sugar and flour upside down and nothing comes out! In addition, you get a variety of labels, a white marker, and some scoops as accessories. I weigh my baking ingredients, so having extra scoops works out nicely to avoid cross contamination of ingredients." —Marcy

    Get a set of four on Amazon for $20.99+ (available in five sizes and four colors)

    16. A set of cable clips so you no longer have to go on a search-and-rescue mission every time your phone charger cord disappears behind your bed.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love these cable clips and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an easy way to organize cables! It sounds cheesy but they have made my life so much easier. I have one attached to the back of my bedside table in my bedroom and two on my desk at work. It makes my desk look neat and organized and is also extremely functional. I don’t have to worry about cords getting in the way or putting something like a coaster on top of them to keep them from falling behind furniture anymore. The price point is incredibly cheap for such a quality product and the amount that you get! I’m very happy with my purchase and would definitely buy more if I found more places in my home or office that I could use them!" —Kayla Carroll

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $6.97.

    17. A hanging closet organizer for a smart way to plan out your outfits for the week — just fold up all of the day's clothes in each shelf so you can just grab the stack and get dressed in the morning!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Must have for NYC cramped apartment living! I made the mistake of buying a different and cheaper (less expensive) unit about 1.5 years ago. It could not hold all my heavy shoes and kept folding in and buckling and was unsightly. This is so sturdy!" —VulcanHunter22

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in two sizes and two colors)

    18. A bottle-emptying kit so you can get every last drop of your favorite condiments or bath products. No more banging the bottle against your hand to no success — instead, insert one of the attachments to the bottle top, flip it over, and be amazed at how you can get up to 20% more product out!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    The kit comes with six adapters (to make them fit a variety of bottleneck sizes) and six of the purple dispensing stands.

    Promising review: "This is such a great tool for using up every last bit of product and reducing waste. We used this on a bottle of lotion that we thought was empty but got nearly six more months out of it when we put this on, we were shocked. I use this for my shampoo and anything else that I can think of." —Felishia Rae

    Get the kit on Amazon for $19.99.

    19. A pair of eyeliner stamps for the mornings you just CANNOT get your winged liner right even after multiple attempts. This will save you from so much frustration during your makeup routine!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    These come with two (one for each eye)!

    Promising review: "This product is amazing. Seriously. Not only does it make PERFECT wings, but I have pretty small eyes that squinch up when I smile, laugh, etc., which is super annoying because my eyeliner is always smudged. These pens though — not a sign of smudging at all. Buy it." —Tara Doyle Robinson

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $14.97 (available in three sizes).

    20. A turntable so even that bottle of mustard way at the back of the shelf can be easily reached with just a quick spin. No more emptying out the entire cabinet for one item anymore!

    amazon.com

    The nonskid surface of the turntable keeps everything in place as you spin it.

    Promising review: "This corner cabinet went from barely accessible and crammed to tidy, accessible, and more spacious! It was so hard to get to anything in this cabinet without knocking a million things over and I knew there had to be a better solution. This lazy susan was the perfect fix and the price is so cheap considering how smooth its spin is. I was a little worried that it would help me access a handful of things, but ultimately take up so much space that less fit in the cabinet in general. Not the case! By moving the lazy Susan to one side, I can easily access everything on it as well as store things on the other side. Now I'm trying to figure out all the cabinets in our home I can add one of these to." —Sayre Alexandra

    Get it from Amazon for $8.92+ (available in six colors)

    21. A rapid egg cooker for easily whipping up your preferred style of eggs in the morning. If you're a big breakfast person, you absolutely need this in your life.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    You can cook up to six eggs at a time. Make hard-boiled eggs, soft-boiled eggs, poached eggs, scrambled eggs, or individual omelets in a matter of minutes!

    Promising review: "If you eat hard-boiled eggs often this is absolutely 100% worth the money just for that. Eggs come out perfect every time. No green rings. No rubbery whites. Easy to peel every time. It's easy, faster than boiling water, and every egg turns out the same. Makes other kinds of eggs too, and according to the booklet you can steam veggies and other things in it too. But OMG even if you only ever used it for hard-boiled eggs it's worth it. I don't think I've ever given a product 5 stars like this before. Also, skeptics: yes, I know boiling eggs isn't hard. It's the consistent results with even less effort that's remarkable." –Crockery

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in five colors)

    22. A pack of oven liners that protects the bottom of your oven from those awful drips and spills that happen when you're cooking up a casserole. Much easier to clean this than your entire oven!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have often lined my oven with a custom fit pan, or with simple aluminum foil, but after cleaning my oven recently, I decided I needed something a bit more hearty than my standard silver colored sheet liner. I ordered these before Thanksgiving and put them to the test the day before and the day of. My oven was on at least 350 degrees for 12 hours one day and 6 hours the next. The mat held up perfectly. No wrinkling or buckling due to the heat, no melting, and thanks to liner, my sweet potato casserole with the butter and pecan and marshmallow topping that bubbled up left no mess in my oven. Once the oven cooled, the crisp baked mess brushed right off and the mat went right back into the oven!" –Pepperite

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $12.99.

    23. A jewelry stand ideal for storing all of your long necklaces so they don't end up tangled up in a random pile of clothes.

    amazon.com

    It also has a base with a ridge around it for storing small jewelry like earrings or rings.

    Promising review: "I love this stand!!! It's simple, sturdy, clean and well made. It doesn't look cheap at all, not even the plastic base. I have 27 necklaces on mine — all spread out nicely — and there's plenty of room for more. I have 16-18" on the front short bar, 36" on the back tallest bar, and double-looped my longest necklaces onto the middle bar. I am so pleased with this product and will definitely tell my friends about it!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.29+ (available in two colors).

    24. A cabinet door organizer if you haven't been able to figure out a good place to store awkwardly shaped things like cutting boards and aluminum foil.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing made my life so much easier. Instead of trying to shove all my tinfoil and sandwich bag boxes into one drawer I can now put them all in here. Saves space and fits great over cabinets! And, it’s super easy to put together." —Maggie Hundshamer

    Get it from Amazon for $15.47 (available in a single or double pack).

    25. A dishwasher magnet so you never again have to open the dishwasher and closely investigate your plate to see if there's still peanut butter and jelly caked on it.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I don't know why it took me so long to buy this thing, but I'm glad that I finally did. Yes, to some it might be silly, but there are times when I forget or can't tell whether my dishes and glassware are clean. This $3 magnetic sign saves me from washing the 'dirty' dishes another time." —Colmac

    Get it from Amazon for $5.80.

    26. A password journal if you're constantly hitting the "Forgot My Password" button every time you have to log onto a site.

    Amazon

    This is also set in alphabetical order so you don't have to rack your brain to try to remember your Netflix password.

    Promising review: "This was exactly what I wanted. The book has a heavy plastic cover and heavy-duty wire binding. The paper is good quality, although my favorite gel pens did have some bleed-through. I'd recommend ballpoint or pencil. The entries have wide spaces, with room for website, email, username, password, and notes (which is perfect for noting the answers to those security questions... What's your favorite ice cream flavor? I don't remember what I answered a year ago!). The password section has a good number of extra lines, for those sites that make you change your password with annoying frequency." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in three sizes).

    27. A stick of Gold Bond Friction Defense that stops chafing caused by sweat in its tracks. Now you can stop worrying about developing that dreaded inner thigh pain whenever you wear shorts or a dress and instead get back to living your life.

    a reviewer photo of a hand holding up the gold bond friction defense stick
    amazon.com

    I've used it for about 12 years now and it's the only thing that I can trust to prevent that dreaded chafing after a sweaty day of walking around. It glides on perfectly, it's unscented, and it doesn't melt away when you start to sweat. If it's a particularly hot day out, it can start to fade after a few hours, so just make sure to bring it with you to reapply. In addition to preventing chafing between my thighs, I've also applied it on my arms where my sports bra rubs against them when I run and it works like a charm!

    Promising review: "I just used it for five days in 90 degree plus weather at Bonnaroo music festival in the middle of Tennessee on a farm in June with 100,000 people walking several miles, dancing, and sweating every day. I am happy to report that this product is a lifesaver. My thighs didn't chafe once, and I have big ones! I had to reapply once during the day. I strongly recommend buying this if you have large thighs and need relief from chafing. I couldn't wear dresses or skirts in the heat if I was walking anywhere, and now I live in them because of this stuff! Buy it! It works!" —Carwizzle

    Get it from Amazon for $5.23.

    28. A handy device so you don't have to constantly ask your housemates if anyone's fed Fido yet today. You don't want your four-legged friend going hungry (or getting a tummy ache from too much food!)

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Awesome product! There are four of us who 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 not, I feed them and indicate it. We all love it so much!" —Toni Deegan

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    29. A packet of pimple patches to extract all the gunk that sits right under the skin whenever you have a whitehead. Just place one of these on your breakout instead of picking at your skin and making it worse!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    These work best if you put them on before going to bed and leave them on all night.

    Promising review: "Wow, I did not expect this to work. I got it yesterday and right out of the package, it resembled stickers. It was easy to take off and apply on clean skin. I suffer from back acne so those are hard to remove and they scar like no other. I wanted something to remove the pus and won’t bleach my clothes. This worked like a charm and fast. I put it on yesterday night before bed. It stayed on all night even with me rolling from side to side at times. After peeling it I saw the gross puss on the patches. Gross!!! The redness was still there but the pimple feels and looks flat so I’m happy. Hopefully when the redness reduces I won’t see any scarring." —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of 40 patches from Amazon for $7.79.

    30. A clip-on sleeve made for anyone who is constantly losing their lip balm in the abyss that is their bag. Just attach this to an outside zipper or your key ring for easy access.

    31. A pet grooming glove with 255 silicone grooming tips that pick up loose hair as you run your hand over your dog or cat. Once you're done, you can easily peel the hair off the glove to throw it away.

    Amazon

    Not only does it make pet hair removal easier, dogs and cats actually love how the gloves feel on their skin!

    Promising review: "I have a 4-month-old husky pup (Sasha) who just started shedding. These grooming gloves are the perfect solution! My puppy would sit and let you scratch her all day if you had the time! I can sit and wipe her down and 'scratch/pet' her with the gloves on and she can't get enough of it! It is a win-win scenario. The gloves are super easy to clean too. I initially made the mistake of trying to pull all of the hair off, which doesn't work well since it is obviously meant to hold on to the hair. Instead, rub the gloves together like you are trying to warm your hands and the hair will quickly ball up and fall off into the trashcan!" –IT Guy

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in three colors)

    32. A container of The Pink Stuff cleaning paste reviewers say works like magic. Got scuffs on your wall? Use this. Hard water stains in your shower? Gone!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Since moving into this apartment I have gradually come to hate this tub because of the water stains I have tried every product on the market including crazy things from the internet like Coca-Cola, vinegar you name it...this stuff with a couple of swipes/scrubs and a toothbrush for the textured areas completely cleaned my tub in a way that I can only tell you excited me to the core of my being. All I can tell you is buy it and I wish you the best!" —Michelle

    Get it from Amazon for $7.51.

    33. A trash can perfect for people who spend lots of time in their car and want a simple way to keep it clean. The only hard part will be teaching your kids to throw their trash in this and not on the car floor like they usually do...

    Amazon

    The trash can comes with straps to fasten it on your car's door handles, center console, or a headrest. It also comes with a free pack of 20 liners, and it can also double as a cooler when you aren't using it for trash.

    Promising review: "This has been perfect for me. I've tried various trash cans for my car, but they always ended up getting gross or knocked over. I have a 3-year-old, so it's not unusual to need to throw away all kinds of stuff that you don't want getting on the floor or seats. This comes with a supply of bags, but most plastic shopping bags will fit. I love that it has the clips on the side so I don't have to worry about the bag falling in, even if it doesn't fit perfectly. I use the Velcro straps to attach it around the headrest of the passenger seat. I'm able to easily flip it around from the front of the seat to the back, or to a different seat, depending on who is in my car with me." —Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in two sizes and two colors) and a 40-count pack of liners for $9.99.

    34. A hanger stacker because no one should spend their precious time trying to untangle a huge pile of plastic hangers. Now, every time you need to hang up a piece of clothing, just grab and go!

    Promising review: "This product is great and does exactly as advertised! Easy assembly - only need four screws (included with package). Was able to fit 41 velvet hangers and 60 plastic, totaling 101 hangers. I alternated which way the hangers were facing up until the handle splits into two. I then placed our hangers facing each way, resting against the handle. This significantly increases the amount of hangers you can carry on this device! The added weight does not appear to impair the functionality of the product at all. This will be perfect when moving out of my apartment into a home." —Sarah

    35. A pair of self-tying shoelaces so all you have to do is slip your feet into your sneakers and head out the door. Perfect if you're running late!

    Promising review: "I have these sneakers that I rarely wear, and when I do, I get so annoyed because the laces come off all the time. But I do love the sneakers. These lock laces are so great — whoever invented them should be getting a humanitarian award for helping people." —Inday G.

    36. A set of bag handles for carrying all of your shopping bags from your car to your kitchen in just one trip. The handles distribute the weight evenly across your hands so your poor little pinky fingers won't feel like they're about to snap off.

    Promising review: "It usually takes me a dozen trips from my car to my house to get my groceries inside, and if I carry too many at once, the handles cut off the circulation in my hands and arms. These special handles solved all my problems. Today, I only made three trips from the car to the house! When I had to put the bags down to open the door, these handles laid on top of the bags and I only had to grab them, instead of searching for all the bag handles as they flopped around. Now there are no more bag marks on my wrist and my hands don't go numb! Who would have thought that something so simple could make my life so much better?" —Rosemary Smith Dattler

    37. An automatic shutoff safety outlet so you can stop worrying all day about whether you turned your curling iron off. The peace of mind this smart device will give you is truly priceless.

    You can set it to shut off after one, two, four, or eight hours.

    Promising review: "I have a really bad habit of forgetting to unplug my hair straightener, but this little guy saves the day! I can now keep it plugged in and set this for one hour, which is plenty of time for the straightener to heat up and for me to straighten my hair. It's saved me a lot of stress." —Tori Martinez

    38. A dog and cat nail trimmer if grooming your pet's nails always results in a temper tantrum. This has a safety guard to prevent overcutting so you won't accidentally hurt your furry friend.

    It also comes with a nail file you can insert into the trimmer, and the blue handles are ergonomically designed to keep your hands comfortable as you're grooming them.

    Promising review: "I have had all kinds of nail clippers, I didn't like any of them. I bought this pair a few weeks and absolutely love them; apparently my dog does also. He sits perfectly still while I trimmed his nails, which he has never done! They are sharp and make a good clean cut without cutting the dog's nails to make them bleed. He is a 9 lb Maltese and a year old. I have a 12-year-old Maltipoo and knew I would have trouble cutting her nails, as the older she gets the grumpier she gets, sorta like all of us. She is quite a bit larger than the male. She weighs approximately 18 lbs. I sit her on my lap and she saw the clippers in my hand and got skittish. Anyway, after one nail trim, she did not flinch at all, she sat perfectly still until I clipped all her nails." —Just me

    39. A Drop Stop car seat gap filler so you won't keep losing your phone or coins in that pesky little gap between your car seat and the center console.

    Promising review: "I can’t begin to tell you the amount of tears and sweat I have shed from dropping things between my car seats and trying to dig them out. I was so relieved to find this product! The Drop Stop was super easy to install in my car. Once installed I tested it by tossing keys, my phone and even coins onto it and the Drop Stop caught them all. No more pulling my car apart just to fish out my phone from between the seats! I also like that it’s black and blends in with the interior of my car. Not that it would be an eyesore if I had a tan interior, but I like things that match!" —Elizabeth

    40. A garment steamer, because pulling out your clunky ironing board every time you have a wrinkly shirt is such a drag. Instead, just fill this steamer with water and let it heat up a bit, and you'll have smooth, wrinkle-free clothes in under five minutes.

    Promising review: "All I can say is WOW! I have never written a review right after buying a product but even while using this steamer, I was already thinking of making one! I really like this steamer because it was so easy to use and very handy. It also heats up pretty fast and does a really good job at removing the wrinkles from my clothes. I have not used this for travel but it will definitely be part of my packing list when I go out of town." —Juju1028

    41. A toilet night-light that's motion-activated so it turns on the second you stumble into the bathroom bleary-eyed. Now you don't even have to turn on your bathroom light and practically blind yourself in the middle of the night!

    This LED toilet light has 16 colors that can work on a rotation or as a solid color.

    Promising review: "This seemingly silly little gadget has turned out to be great! The light level (brightness) can be dimmed down if desired, and the color can be set to whatever you want, but the bottom line is that you don't need to turn on a bright overhead light (which wakes me up and makes me angry, not a good combination) when you need to go into the bathroom at night. Cleaning it is a breeze, too; what seems like it's going to be a problem...isn't. I can't recommend this toilet night light highly enough, and I'm not ashamed to admit it. Could be on the gift list this December." —Lee R. Gurr
