    1. A peel-off mask that's basically the textbook definition of gross but soooooo satisfying. Just apply a layer to your problem areas (or your whole face!) then peel it off after 20-30 minutes.,

    Promising review: "This product has helped my skin a lot with getting all those pesky little blackheads off my nose. It's kinda gross to see the blackheads all come off my skin and stuck on the mask but awesome at the same time cuz now the blackheads are out of my skin! Just make sure to wash your face afterward to clean out those now open pores and then apply moisturizer to your face." —Maddy

    Get the mask and an application brush from Amazon for $13.79.

    2. A pack of AirPod cleaners — because you'd be shocked and appalled by the amount earwax that gets trapped in those bad boys.

    Promising review: "Economically priced, speedy delivery, ridiculously simple to use, and very very effective. Lo and behold, this little tool made short work of the effort, and the results were...well I won't describe the deeply caked mass this little tool unearthed out of concern that you might be eating while you shop online. All I will say is that this was money well spent, and I highly recommend it for your drain clog removal needs." —Jon Jones

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in two sizes).

    4. An exfoliating glove with immediate results you can actually see — seriously, the dead skin just clumps up and rolls right off of your body. We love and hate to see it.,

    Promising review: "You might think you're exfoliating your skin but TRUST ME, you haven't been. You'll be SHOCKED and maybe even a little disgusted when you see how much skin comes off on these gloves the first time you use them.

    "Take a long, warm shower, then, with no soap, use these mitts after you're all rinsed off. Scrub your body well in a circular motion. Then look at the mitts! They'll look like they've been sprinkled with flour! You'll never get that much skin off your body again with subsequent uses, so don't forget to look because it's incredible. And get ready to be bowled over when you dry off. Hello, softness!!!" —isaidso

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (also available in a pack of two).

    5. A cleaning putty so you can get the dust and debris out of every nook and cranny in your home — from the crevices of your vents to the random dusty spots in your bathroom.,

    Promising review: "WOW!!! This stuff is incredible! I work in an environment that is very dirty and our office is always covered in a fine layer of dust. But just a few minutes spent mashing this slime into all the cracks and crevices of my keyboard, mouse, phone, etc and it's all clean as can be! This stuff picks up dirt on contact and leaves behind a clean, no smell, no residue surface. I bought a second jar for my vehicle and it works miracles in there as well. My air vents, shifter and seats are now spotless. I couldn't be happier with this product." —Jenna75

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    6. A powerful blackhead vacuum you can use to suck all of the gunk out of your pores. You'll be horrified yet intrigued by all the nastiness that was living in your face.

    Reviewer holding pore vacuum after using it

    Promising review: "Let's be honest. Nobody likes blackheads. We either squeeze them out, put those strips on them to yank them out, or just hope that nobody is looking that close. This device helps fight the gross ways we have to deal with these blemishes. It's fairly simple to use. You just put it on your face and move it around. There's a constant suction power, so when you're done your face isn't looking all red, spotty, and squeezed. My face feels much smoother already!" —Stuart D.

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in three colors).

    7. A flexible coil brush so you can finally reach all the dust in your dryer vent and crumbs that are hiding underneath your fridge and oven. I'm shuddering just thinking about what's living under there.,

    Promising review: "I use one in the dryer filter area and one under the refrigerator. They get dust I can't get any other way. I gave five stars for durability even though I've had them for only a short time. They feel sturdy to last long enough for me." —ASF

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $7.95.

    8. A pet hair remover that will pick up each and every stray hair your fur baby leaves in its wake. It's perfect for restoring your couch back to its former glory or making your car's seats look presentable again.,

    Promising review: "I was cautiously optimistic, but this tool is as effective as everyone is saying. My couches, and especially my recliner, look brand new. It takes little to no effort to use. Just use it in a 'scrubbing' type motion and it catches and traps the fur (and other small debris, such as crumbs...) in the little compartment. Pop it open, empty it out. Done." —Ian K.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    9. A stainless-steel tongue cleaner so you can scrape away all the germs in your mouth that have been giving you a terrible case of morning breath. It's gross and satisfying in equal measure.

    Promising review: "Unfortunately I, like many, suffer from bad breath and have tried so many things to stop it. I read that sometimes it's the germs on your tongue that can cause it, so I went crazy trying to brush my tongue. Of course, we all know how that ends — gagging, watery eyes, and it still looks like that gross film is on your tongue. I finally decided that maybe it was time to get a tongue cleaner and it had to be a stainless-steel one because they are easier to clean and sterilize. This product is really easy to use and I can get very far back on my tongue without activating my gag reflex. Also, it doesn't have the feeling like brushing with a toothbrush does. This cleaner just glides across my tongue, taking all the icky germs and bad breath with it. I love my nice new fresh breath and bolster of confidence!" —jordanlauren

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (also available in a pack of two and 12).

    10. A bottle of earwax removal drops that uses fizzy microfoam action to break down all the stubborn wax that's been clogging up your ears for way too long now. Here's to hearing again!

    The drop bottle
    Reviewer's finger with ear wax on it

    Promising review: "I've been having ear hearing/cloggage issues for a month. My ear would not drain properly and it was frustrating me very much. I bought this product and used it twice and I could ear again. This is by far the best ear-cleaning product ever! Highly recommended!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $5.98 (also available in a pack of two).

    11. A three-pronged duster to reach in between your blinds, because they are probably way dirtier than you think 😬., Amazon

    The duster comes with five microfiber sleeves so you can take care of all your windows at once before giving the sleeves a good wash.

    Promising review: "A super time saver. It legitimately used to take us hours to clean all the blinds. We can now do all the faux-wood Venetian blinds in the house in about one hour. It's really nice that it comes with some spare cloths for it, and it's cheap enough to buy a whole additional set so we can make more than one kid do this chore at the same time." —R.D.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    12. A Shark steam mop so you can stop fumbling around with a bulky old-school mop and bucket. This sleek device uses the power of steam to lift away grime — and the results are equal parts disgusting and satisfying.,

    It comes with three steam-level controls and a washable double-sided microfiber pad.

    Promising review: "OK, I admit it was an impulse buy. Wow, was I shocked when I used it the first time! Three dogs with a doggie door causes paw prints and dirt and it would take me up to three hours to really deep clean my hardwood floors. From setup to cleaning, getting shiny floors took about 45 minutes! It was super easy and fast deep cleaning!!! I really do believe whoever created this is a genius! Brilliant!" —Michelle

    Get it from Amazon for $119.99 and get two extra microfiber pads for $17.88.

    13. An exfoliating foot mask to remove all the dead skin that's lurking on your feet. Simply slip the booties on and let the fruit acid and 17 types of natural extracts get to work while you kick back.

    Promising review: "My feet used to be horribly dry, itchy and cracked with thick calluses. I started using Baby Foot every couple of months a year ago and my feet are now soft and smooth. Make sure to soak your feet before using and then again at least once a few days later. I leave the booties on for longer than the instructions, usually around two hours. It doesn’t burn or irritate my skin. A few days later the top layer of skin starts peeling all over. It’s REALLY gross looking so make sure you don’t need to show your feet for about two weeks! The results are amazing so it’s totally worth it! Calluses improve dramatically with one treatment but bad calluses may need a couple of treatments to go away. Make sure to wait at least two weeks before using again. I’ve recommended to all my friends and family. Seems to work for all skin types." —Mostly Maven

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    14. A well-loved robotic vacuum over 34,00 Amazon customers have left a 5-star review for. You can schedule cleaning times right from the included remote — and your guests will have no idea your new maid is actually a robot.,

    Promising review: "I've been in the market for a robovac for quite some time, and, after a recent back surgery, vacuuming manually wasn't easy. I purchased this vacuum and have been very pleased with it. Its slim design gets under the dressers, beds, other furniture, and all the tight spaces that I couldn't get to with an upright vacuum cleaner. This makes a very low sound while in use, and honestly, I don't even realize it's operating, as the sound is pleasant (not loud at all)." —Teach3

    Get it from Amazon for $199.99 (available in two colors).

    15. A three-step pore strip kit that is waaaayyyy more powerful than the ones you usually buy from the drugstore. The first step will help open up your pores, the second step sucks everything out, and the third step helps soothe your newly squeaky-clean nose.,

    Promising review: "My nose is probably the most difficult area of my face. It gets bumpy with dead skin and all sorts of junk. Scrubbing it doesn’t even help. These strips do. It doesn’t leave you sore or feeling red after. For me personally, my nose gets gunk in it easily, so I use these strips one to two times a week. I can already see a difference in the amount of junk coming out since I’m doing it frequently." —Jaden L.

    Get a pack of five from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in three styles).

    16. A foot file for anyone who feels like their feet are never ready for any occasion. This grater will grind away at calluses and have your heels and toes looking silky smooth in no time.,

    Promising review: "OMG, these should be standard issue to every human. I’ve bought them all, the cheap foot files, the expensive ones, the Ped Egg and even a foot file from that direct sales nail wrap company. None of those remotely compare to this one. I thought I was reduced to course heels forever; no more! With just one use my heels are fabulous! The calluses this thing removed were absolutely disgusting, but I couldn’t be happier. You won’t be disappointed!!" —JMart

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    17. A pack of all-natural bottle-cleaning tablets that'll help remove stains and odors from any water bottles or coffee tumblers that you've left unwashed for an embarrassingly long time. It happens.

    These are biodegradable and odor free.

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting Hydro Flask coffee mug — I tried everything. A bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. 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 I used it on another Hydro Flask 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

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $8 (also available in packs of 36 and 78).

    18. A pack of Avarelle Acne Cover Patches you can quickly plop on any pimple and let the blend of tea tree and calendula oils shrink your zit in just a few hours.

    Promising review: "I love this product! Whenever I have a pimple that is ready to burst (whitehead), I put one of these stickers on for a day and BOOM, it flattens and sucks up all that yucky junk. It feels really comfortable and can be barely noticeable if you have a small pimple that needs to be removed. There were times when I wore these out to school. Great product!" —Jenny

    Get a pack of 40 from Amazon for $8.49.

    19. A jetted tub cleaner for anyone who desperately needs a relaxing bath but your bathtub is a little too grimy for comfort. It'll remove all the gunk trapped in the places you can't even see, so your tub will be the cleanest it's ever been.

    Promising review: "Love this stuff. I was skeptical at first. I am a huge germaphobe and this worked well enough for me to actually take a bath at my new place with the jets on!" —Ann

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    20. A box of coffee machine–cleaning powder to flush out all of the gunk inside that you didn't even know was there. It'll also make your coffee taste way less bitter and get your carafe as sparkly clean as the day you bought it!

    Promising review: "This worked great for our coffee maker. The picture on the left (above) is the first batch of water, including the packet of cleaner. The second was already much cleaner and the third and fourth batches of water were completely clear. Our coffee tastes much less bitter now." —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of three packets from Amazon for $7.92.

    21. A TubShroom to catch all of your hair before it has a chance to clog your drain — because no, it shouldn't take a full hour for your shower to fully drain., Amazon

    Check out our full review of the TubShroom here!

    Promising review: "I can't say enough good things about this product. I have a family of four and would frequently have to snake our shower drain. It appears I won't be having that problem ever again. I even give my dog baths, and this collects the hair. You don't know how much hair you wash down your drain until you use this!" —Aaron

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95+ (available in six colors).

    22. Or an over-the-drain option you simply position down on your shower floor and let it collect all your loose strands in a tidy pile that's super easy to clean up.

    Reviewer photo showing hair collected with over-the-drain stopper

    Promising review: "I've been very impressed! It's tall enough to fit easily over my pop-up drain and (even without suction cups) the weighted top keeps it in place. I have medium-length hair and seem to shed almost as much as my cat, but the drain protector catches it all and the hair is easily removed and tossed away. Best of all, the silicone doesn't hold onto mildew or mold. I have been able to spray and wipe away any grime with very little effort. It looks like this drain protector will last a very long time. This has been a very worthy purchase!"—Suneimi

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    23. OR! A pair of DrainWigs that hang out in your shower's drain to catch stray hairs and stop you from having to buy yet another bottle of Drano. It's meant to be disposed of after four months, so you'll never even have to touch any of the hair it collects!


    Promising review: "I didn't even think about my shower drain being such a problem with hair. We have a relatively new shower and the drain was starting to be slow, but not really a problem because the pipe has a long drop. I was watching Shark Tank and thought maybe I need to check this out. Wow, there was a lot of hair to clean! Three long-haired girls in the house! I started using this and it pulled all sorts of hair out. We change it about once a month. Easy to pull out and no breaks or rust. I keep buying!" —Kindle Customer

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $10.64.

    24. A two-pack of reusable mop pads because it's time to say goodbye to the wasteful disposable ones you've been spending way too much money on. These even have helpful Velcro straps so the pad won't go flying off when you're in the middle of a good scrub session.,

    They're compatible with both the original Swiffer and the Swiffer Wet Jet!

    Promising review: "The velcro closure alone is worth the purchase. It was really easy to put on (no more pinched fingers) and the hold is very strong. No more having to handle the dirty, drippy sheets to try to reattach them in the middle of cleaning the floor. I noticed that my floors are cleaner because the microfiber absorbs more and doesn't just push the grime around the floor. Also, these can be washed in the washing machine for the next use." —Rosemary P.

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $14.99.

    25. A broom and squeegee combo so you can rake up everything that your vacuum can't reach. You'll be shook when you see all the hair and dust that's hiding out in your area rugs.

    Reviewer's pile of hair and dust collected from carpet after using the broom device

    Promising review: "I have long hair. Due to a thyroid issue, I lose more strands than I used to. Every few days the hair starts to accumulate on the bathroom floor. This broom picks up all the hair from the tile just going over it once. It even gets the strands on the edges and corners. Unlike regular brooms, all the hair stays on the broom until I remove it instead of strands falling back to the floor. Thanks to a review I read before ordering this broom, I also use it on the carpet before vacuuming. I quickly pull it toward me, and it grabs all the hair from the carpet. It only takes a minute or two per room and I no longer have to remove the roller brush from the vacuum and cut all the hair wrapped around it every month." —Nicolor

    Get it from Amazon for $12.44+ (available in four designs).

    26. An ozone-free Levoit air purifier with a three-stage filtration system that'll capture allergens, pet hair, dander, smoke, mold, odor, and large dust particles floating all over your home. It's basically a must-have for anyone dealing with allergies right now.,

    Promising review: "This air purifier is great! I bought it because there was a lot of pollen and cat dander in my house which was making my asthma flare-up. Since I’ve got this air purifier, the cat odor has decreased and I don’t need to use my inhaler as much. The noise is very quiet and not interruptive for me. Overall, I love this item and totally recommend it." —Dana

    Get it from Amazon for $76.46 (available in two colors).

    27. A 30-foot dryer vent cleaner — because you probably had no idea you should be cleaning it. All that dirt and lint can be a major fire hazard, and a clean vent means your clothes will dry way faster.


    You can use it manually or attach it to a power drill for extra cleaning power.

    Promising review: "This thing is amazing! We have an exceptionally long dryer vent that goes from the back of the dryer, then down through the floor to the basement, then all the way across the width of a garage to the outside wall. So...there is lots of piping to think about and we had been wondering if we would have to get a professional in to clean it. Well, saw this tool on Amazon and thought we would give it a try. What a solution! A quick connecting of the sections, slipped the hood off the outside pipe vent, hooked up the power drill and cleaned out the entire vent in less than 10 minutes!" —Miss Belle

    Get it from Amazon for $20.95.

    28. disposable cleaning wand to make scrubbing the toilet less of a chore. The kit comes with 16 refill heads to get you started, so you can immediately say goodbye to that dirty toilet wand that's stinking up your bathroom!

    Promising review: "So, we have a toilet that belongs to the cats. We don't use it, we don't look at it, we like to pretend it does not exist. Even with semiregular flushing, cat waste is pretty nasty stuff and built up quickly in the bowl. One of these wands cleaned it up in a single session! Before and after pics attached (above)." —Whitney

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (also available in various bundles).

    29. A grooming glove so you can remove excess fur from your precious pooch or ferocious feline — but they'll just think you're giving them some extra pets and cuddles!

    a series of images showing pet hair on the glove

    Promising review: "Fantastic dog grooming aid! Our older rescue dog isn't too keen on the routine dog brushing stuff but her thick coat really needs the grooming — this dog-grooming glove is the right answer. Put the glove on, pet the dog, and all that loose hair comes away, leaving her coat feeling so much smoother and softer without causing her to be nervous or upset over a brushing. Highly recommend, and yes I'm going to be ordering as gifts for a couple of other dog owners I know!" —DSP

    Get each glove from Amazon for $7.99 (available in three colors).

    Check out my coworker's review of this hair-removing glove here (#19).

    30. splurge-worthy and incredibly lightweight cordless Dyson vacuum — because the last thing you want to do when you're in a hurry is fumble around with a tangled vacuum cord. You can just grab this and get to cleaning instantly!

    Dyson, Daniel Boan/BuzzFeed

    I hate vacuuming so much. Honestly any form of cleaning takes every inch of my willpower, but fumbling with a messy cord and a heavy vacuum is the last thing I want to do during my free time. I recently got my hands on the new Dyson Micro 1.5 kg — and it opened my eyes to the truly fabulous world of cordless cleaning. It is SO ridiculously easy to pull this off of the wall (it's seriously featherweight) and take it from room to room to do some quick spot cleaning. It also comes with a few handy attachments to turn into a handheld mini vacuum (amazing for countertop messes!) and a motorized upholstery attachment (amazing for couches and mattresses!), so I've basically been reaching for this for every little cleaning task in my apartment.

    I've become an almost daily vacuum user in the two months I've had this — I don't even know who I am anymore. All I know is I don't think I'll ever be able to return to a bulky corded vacuum again.

    Get it from Dyson for $399.99.

    31. A bottle of professional-grade callus-removing gel to dissolve those caked-on calluses you never thought you'd get rid of. Plus, it only takes about seven minutes to use, so it's perfect if you need your feet to look presentable in a hurry. 

    A before photo showing the bottom of a foot looking rough and an after photo showing the bottom of the same foot appearing smoother
    Calluses on a heel and toe looking improved and less rough in after photos

    It's strong stuff, so many reviewers advise wearing gloves and not leaving it on past the recommended seven minutes. 

    Promising review: "I have the driest heels and this is the ONLY product that has ever worked. Before I used this my heels had some pretty deep cracks and now they're almost baby soft again. BUT please follow the directions...left it on my super-dry thick-calloused heels for only three minutes and the callouses were literally melting off! Wonderful product! So glad I don't have to go soak my feet in those tubs at the nail salon anymore." —Key2Del

    Get it from Amazon for $13.87.

    32. A pack of corn-remover pads to cover and heal those painful suckers that are taking all of the pep out of your step. Just slap one of these on top of your corn and repeat for up to 14 days until it falls right off.

    Promising review: "My partner had been suffering with a corn on the side of his foot for some time. We picked these up from Amazon and weren't really sure what to expect. He used them for nine days and the corn came completely out of his foot with no pain or issue at all anymore! We couldn't believe he'd suffered for so long when it was this easy! Don't hesitate to purchase these, they work and we'll buy more when and if he ever gets another corn." —Jessie

    33. A pack of sticky stakes that'll help trap any annoying insects that are as obsessed with your plants as you are.,

    Promising review: "Holy cow these suckers work! I'm so grossed out by the result, but at the same time, I have a sick sense of satisfaction. I used these in my house plants that are breeding fungus gnats like crazy. I used them in conjunction with beneficial nematodes, and they definitely cut down on the number of gnats in our house. Unfortunately, I added a new houseplant, plus repotted one that had outgrown its prior home, and we are wrapped up in them again. I'm buying another package of sticky traps as soon as I finish this review!" —Megan

    34. And a pack of oil-absorbing tissues made with natural bamboo charcoal to get rid of shine in just a few swipes and keep you looking matte all day long.

    Promising review: "I've had oily skin my whole life and have used countless types of oil-blotting sheets because they're lifesavers. THESE ARE AMAZING. Great deal, big sheets, and they pull out one at a time so easily. I used to use Clean & Clear sheets or knockoffs of the same thing but I'll never go back. Give these a try; they are completely worth it. They work well and are easy to use. No negative things to say at all." —Kelsey
