    1. An affordable teeth whitening pen because spending tons of money on whitening products that leave you with teeth sensitivity is, in my professional opinion, no fun. For under $20 you can whiten your teeth anytime, anyplace, in just five minutes, and without any lingering pain.

    2. A pack of biodegradable foaming drain cleaning tablets to take care of all the out-of-sight grime clogging (and stinking) up your garbage disposal.

    3. A bottle of wine drops so your before-bed glass of wine doesn't end in a morning-after headache. A few drops added to your glass works to naturally reduce sulfites and tannins in wine — the frequent culprit of "I had one glass, this can't be a hangover" headaches.

    4. A gluten- and cruelty-free lengthening mascara if you're tired of getting excited about mascaras that never live up to their promises. This one is different — or at least according to the 114,000+ 5-star reviews.

    5. A pack of Miracle-Gro plant food spikes for helping all your plant babies live their healthiest, happiest indoor lives. One fertilizer spike continuously feeds plants with nutrients they need to thrive for up to two months!

    6. An organic cotton bacon sponge that can absorb up to 10 TIMES its weight in grease. No more wasting a roll of paper towels every time the sweet smell of bacon calls your name. *AND* it washes up for reuse with a little dish soap pre-soak before tossing it in the washing machine.

    7. Dishwasher cleaning tablets because (to my shock and horror) you have to clean the thing that cleans your dishes and these tablets make giving your machine a deep internal clean as easy as...well...running the dishwasher.

    8. An easy-to-use collagen-coating hair mask you can apply at home to make it look like your hair hasn't undergone years of abuse at the hands of bleach and blow-dryers.

    9. A pair of incredibly versatile high-waisted leggings so you can lounge, work, workout, and go out all in the same pair of super soft, stylish, and stretchy leggings.

    10. A patented pet hair remover if the amount of adhesive rollers you're going through is getting out of hand. This roller uses bristles, not sticky tape, to catch lint, meaning you can clean and reuse it over and over and over again.

    11. A pack of washing machine tablets for complete confidence that the hand-me-down washer that cleans your clothes is actually clean — with no scrubbing required! Just pop a tablet inside your empty washer and run through a cycle like normal for a shiny, deodorized washer drum.

    12. A stylish countertop knife sharpener that makes it super easy to maintain your blades so you can effortlessly slice through sweet potatoes without any unsafe sawing.

    13. A pack of multipurpose dermaplaning razors because that middle school eyebrow mishap has made face shaving and brow shaping feel like a daunting (and risky) task. These teeny tiny blades safely remove peach fuzz, exfoliate skin, and include a precision cover for worry-free eyebrow maintenance.

    14. A pack of bottle-cleaning tablets to remove stubborn stains from the walls of metal tumblers and impossible-to-clean water bottles with NO scrubbing required!

    15. A stainless-steel foot file so you treat your feet on the regular and scrape off all that dried, cracked skin keeping you from being the foot model you were always born to be.

    16. A concentrated allergen spray if you're looking for a quick and easy way to reduce the presence of airborne and surface allergens from pets, mites, and more. Just combine with water and spray those pesky sneezes away!

    17. A pair of copper-infused compression sleeves for arch support that won't limit your range of motion. They can be worn directly over your skin — just like socks — and reviewers say they help relieve heel and arch pain caused by a range of issues from bunions to plantar fasciitis.

    18. A pack of hydrocolloid pimple patches with gunk-absorbing powers that will visibly improve the look of your pimples like ~magic~.

    19. A bug bite suction tool because why wouldn't you reduce the length and severity of a bug bite if you could? They suck. Fortunately, this reusable tool *sucks* out the irritants left behind under the skin by our bug and insect friends to reduce both itchiness and swelling.

    20. A dryer vent cleaning kit – it attaches to your vacuum to suck lint and other debris (aka major fire hazards) from the narrowest of crevices.

    21. A pack of eco-friendly dishwasher detergent pods so you can skip the annoying pre-clean and stick your plates and bowls right in the dishwasher with the confidence that they'll actually come out clean. The compostable packaging and carbon neutral shipping is just a happy bonus.

    22. A silicone-free L'Oreal moisturizing treatment if you want visibly healthier looking hair fast — like, eight seconds fast. This rinse-out formula works on any hair texture or length, delivering the proteins and amino acids necessary for a shiny, flippable mane.

    23. A length-adjustable pet hair broom with rubber bristles for wrangling the fur trapped in your carpet and a rubber head that works like a magnet on wood and linoleum to attract stray hair. If that wasn't enough, there's also a built-in squeegee for corralling spilled liquids and cleaning glass.

    24. A wood polish that conditions and protects wood with a combination of beeswax and orange oil while hiding dings and scratches that were totally already like that when you got it.

    25. A pack of cleaning K-Cups because, unless you really have your life together, the inside of your Keurig is likely coated with grinds and residue from old brews. Not only is this bad for your machine, but it can also taint the flavor of your coffee!

    26. A powerful mold and mildew stain cleaner to lift the most daunting grout and caulking stains without the back-breaking scrubbing. Just apply the concentrated gel formula, wait six to eight hours, and watch your stains (and your worries) wash down the drain.

    27. A breathable weighted blanket made from cooling bamboo modal so you can enjoy the calming effects of a weighted blanket year-round, without the not-so-calming effects of overheating.

    28. This sulfate-free biotin shampoo with over 18,000 5-star ratings that can help hair look thicker and stimulate regrowth with regular use. It's 100% safe to use on all hair types — even color-treated hair!

    29. A jewelry cleaning pen to return cloudy gems to their former, out-of-the-box glory without shelling out the big bucks for a professional cleaning.

    30. A cropped padded sports bra if you're looking to cut down on the number of layers you and your boobs have to endure during hot, sweaty workouts.

    31. A nonscratch cooktop cleaning kit with everything you need for making your always vaguely greasy stove top look as good as the day you moved in (or better).
