    1. A pack of stain-removing, nontoxic cleaning cups perfect for cleaning the inside of your Keurig or K-Cup coffee machine.,

    Promising review: "Okay, so these cleaner pods are awesome! I didn't know how gross our Keurig was until today. The big mason jar on the left is when I actually ran the cleaner through plus one rinse cycle. The middle one is another rinse cycle and the last one, on the right, is the last one I did. So yes, I would suggest running two or three rinse cycles instead of the recommended one. But it's still an awesome product for the price! I have a Keurig 2.0 and I had no issues." —Mads0421

    2. An eight-blade Mueller Austria Pro-Series Slicer that'll mince your onions, chop your veggies, and even store them after. It has three different-sized chopper blades and five interchangeable blades for slicing, julienne, grating, and even shredding.,

    Promising review: "I have a high sensitivity to raw onions, yet I use them in almost every meal. Not only do my eyes burn and water to the point of blindness, but I sneeze excessively. I've tried all the tricks, even wearing motorcycle goggles. Nothing helps. This minimizes my onion cutting time by 90%. It takes me less than a minute to dice one rather than 10. It works for all my fruits and veggies too, but has saved me from the dreaded onion. I absolutely LOVE this product." —Candace

    3. A pack of Affresh dishwasher cleaner tablets — just throw them in and they'll penetrate, dissolve, and remove any odor-causing residue or lime and mineral buildup. Maintenance, folks, it's part of adulthood, who knew.

    Promising review: "I have to admit I bought this with a lot of skepticism. Our 35-year-old dishwasher wasn't really cleaning dishes, it was only the heated water that sanitized them. Our glasses would come out so cloudy that we were embarrassed to have anyone over and give them something to drink. We have a well so the water is full of minerals. I chalked it up to having to buy a new dishwasher, which we can't afford right now, or doing dishes by hand. But even using vinegar and scrubbing by hand didn't get those glasses clean. We followed instructions and put in two Affresh tablets, then ran the dishwasher. On the next load, things were a little bit better but the glasses were still not great. My husband said we'd just have to buy new glasses. Then I read a review where someone said they put in the Affresh tablet along with the dish soap. So, I tried that on a load of just glassware. It was AMAZING! It was like the glasses were new. We've now been using the dishwasher for a little more than a month and everything is coming out beautifully. We followed instructions and put in two new tablets on the one-month anniversary to make sure we were keeping everything clean. Now we don't have to buy a new dishwasher immediately. I am so surprised and grateful for a product that actually does what it says." —MaggieMae

    4. A pair of microfiber mop slippers that cover your shoes or your bare feet to help you mop up all the messes while you walk around the house — they're also super easy to clean! Just pop them in the washing machine.,

    Promising review: "These are awesome. I make my kids wear them around while I'm cleaning the floors. They make great scrubbers for pretty much anything, they hold up well in the wash, and wait for it — they fit the Swiffer. Totally in love!" —Renee Darksteel

    A before and after customer review photo of their waterbottle

    Promising review: "Finished using it five minutes ago and it’s the best! My husband uses a Stanley thermos daily to take coffee to work. He tries to remember to rinse it out every day, but that doesn’t always happen. I got the package today, filled the thermos with water, dropped in a tablet, and let it sit. I promptly forgot about it for a few hours. Initially, I was disappointed when I dumped the water, as it was barely tinged brown. Then I put fresh water in, covered the top, shook it, and OMG. The crap that came out was disgusting, yet fascinating. I looked in the thermos and saw almost nothing but sparkly silver! There was a little crud left in the top third of the thermos, but it’s a really tall one, so I wasn’t surprised. Got the bottle brush, swished twice, and bam! All clean! No fumes, no smell, no nothing, just clean. I used to struggle cleaning it with baking soda, vinegar, the brush, soap, and elbow grease. Screw that. I will forever use only these tablets! Here’s to better tasting (and way less gross) coffee!" —BranchingOut

    7. A pack of M3 Naturals Retainer and Denture Cleaner to get rid of any odor or buildup that's stuck on. Just drop one tablet into warm tap water along with your dental appliance, and in just a few minutes they'll be like new.

    Promising review: "I really loved this product. I am currently waiting for a new Invisalign set. My old Invisalign needed to be cleaned. I read the reviews and decided to purchase. OMG it worked! There was a fresh taste and they were clean. I wished I had found this product sooner. I did let them soak overnight only because I had been wearing them for the last four months. Nothing happened to Invisalign; there was no weakness or anything. Just very clean and fresh. If I could have given the product 10 stars I would have." —Lisa R.

    8. A bottle of The Laundress Crease Release, a classic scented, wrinkle release spray that'll save you countless hours of having to iron your shirts, suits, curtains, and basically everything else.

    A person spraying the bottle of crease release

    Promising review: "I got a bottle of this in one of those subscription boxes and kinda rolled my eyes — but I use it almost every single day! I have very, very limited closet space, so some clothes that should be hung end up getting folded, and, let's be honest, most of the time I don't even bother to fold. I'm very busy — a mom, a business owner, and I'm going back to school to be a nurse. So I don't have time to steam my clothes or fold them properly. This is incredible and saves a lot of time. I found it works the best if I spritz a little and then pull out the wrinkles. Smells fantastic and it's def my go-to." —Laura Maturo

    Get it from Amazon for $16.

    9. A pack of hydrocolloid, tea tree, calendula oil, and CICA-infused acne patches to help you spot treat any pimples when they inconveniently pop up on your face.

    A customer review photo of their fingers holding up the patches

    Promising review: "The amount of gunk this took out of my pores AFTER washing and exfoliating my face is literally crazy!! I have very oily skin and acne (cystic and 'normal' acne). Also works great on popped pimples. Sucks all the crap out!!" —Amanda

    Get a pack of 40 patches from Amazon for $8.49+ (available in small and extra large sizes).

    10. A bottle of Oh Yuk Jetted Tub Cleaner — it'll clean out all the gunk from your bathtub jets so that when you choose to marinate in your own juices, the pot you're doing it in is totally clean.,

    Promising review: "This is amazing! I have never left a review but this stuff worked so well I thought it deserves one. I moved into a house that had a jetted tub. I cleaned it with bleach and other cleaners and it still just did not seem clean. I would fill the tub up with clean water and when I turned on the jets occasionally something black and flat would come out. I refused to use the tub and I was about to replace it. This showed up when I was searching tub cleaners and I said I would give it a try. It’s super easy to use just fill up the tub with hot water pour a little cleaner in and turn the jets on for 15 minutes. When you come back after the 15 minutes it’s up be prepared for the yuck you will see!!! It is truly an awesome product." —Alexis

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    11. A reusable ChomChom Roller Dog Hair Remover that'll seriously get rid of that unintentional fur seating with just a few rolls. And before you ask, it doesn't use sticky tape! It's made using a sturdy brush system.

    A customer review photo of their car mat covered in dog hair except for one area where they used the roller

    Promising review: "I have a corgi. My corgi likes the dog park. Unfortunately, this means I need to transport my corgi to the dog park, which means that at any given point I have almost enough hair in my back seat to make a whole new dog. Car wash vacuums can’t get it, even my handheld vacuum with a brush attachment has trouble doing more than getting the loose hairballs, leaving the hairs that are tangled in the matting. Enter the Chom Chom. I cannot recommend this thing enough. To show you guys how effective it is, the picture with this review is a couple of months' worth of corgi car trips. I didn’t pre-vacuum, just rolled the Chom Chom over it a few times. The small patch I did in the photo took maybe 30 seconds total, including emptying the little hair chamber into a plastic bag I’m using for this cleanup. Seriously, this thing works better than any lint roller I’ve ever used, and won’t need to be replaced like one." —Rhys'sPieces

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    12. And if you're looking for something to scramble up your eggs, an incredible little Whiskware Egg Mixer with a BlenderBall wire whisk. Plus, it has a built-in egg cracker, and enough space to scramble up to eight eggs at once — it even has a built-in egg separator if you like your eggs sans yolk!


    Promising review: "A genuinely helpful cooking gizmo. As easy to use as could possibly be, instant clean-up simply by shaking with hot water plus a squirt of liquid soap, and inexpensive to boot! For omelets, scrambled eggs, and any other dishes requiring blended eggs, this altogether beats other devices — whether it's a hand egg beater, electric blender, or even a whisk or a fork." —synapsys

    Get it from Amazon for $11.14.

    13. A 100% natural pumice stone toilet bowl cleaner to scrub away any rust or lime buildup on your porcelain throne.

    A customer review before and after photo showing the results of using the pumice on their toilet

    Promising review: "We rented a home and the toilets were disgusting. Someone suggested a pumice stone and let me tell you, it was amazing!! The picture is after just five minutes with the stone. I tried bleach, every toilet bowl cleaner available, and countless hours of scrubbing to no avail...but this stone worked instantly! I will be buying several more!! The stone does dissolve when scrubbing so you need a couple. I was able to do almost two toilets that looked awful completely with one stone!!" —CristaCross

    Get it from Amazon for $11.40.

    14. A bottle of fast-acting, nontoxic Folex Carpet Spot Remover – it works on any color carpet or material to remove tough spots and stains. Plus it doesn't leave a sticky residue and it requires no rinsing or vacuuming.

    A customer review photo of a carpet with a giant red spill all over the floor and then the same carpet cleaned after using the spray

    To use, apply to the stain, gently agitate with your fingers, and blot with an absorbent cloth. This is nontoxic and should be nonirritating on the skin!

    Promising review: "I'm really disappointed I lived without this product for so long. I'm a clean freak and I'm always concocting ways to get stains out of things when I'm not steaming tile for fun. However, I have an overpriced wool carpet that my dogs have destroyed with accidents, bully sticks, and just general recklessness. Moreover, my kids have taken to tossing all sorts of heavily colored foods on the floor for the pups. I gave up on this rug ever being clean again. I've had it professionally cleaned and tried a dozen things myself... and no difference. So I thought I'd try this assuming that it wouldn't work on the stain-determined rug but that'd I use it on my less tenacious ones. I sprayed it on, reading the instructions saying that I didn't need to scrub it, etc. And minutes later, freaking magic. My very pale blue and white rug is virginal. I admit that I did rub it in a little on the harsher stains/discoloration but there were plenty of areas that didn't require any follow-up rubbing. I'm sincerely blown away and just ordered a second bottle. The price of this product is minimal if you're looking to make your rug/carpet like new again so I would absolutely recommend trying it. I don't think I've ever been this impressed with anything I've ever purchased. I feel cheated for not knowing about this sooner." —bubbleslovesoap

    Get it from Amazon for $12.02.

    15. A bottle of Dr Song Benzoyl Peroxide Face and Body Wash formulated with 10% benzoyl peroxide to help really penetrate deep into your skin while being nonirritating. Body acne be gone!

    A customer review photo of the bottle of body wash

    Promising review: "OK, I’m in my mid-30s and have tried everything under the sun since I started getting mild acne on my butt as a teen. I mean everything! I gave this a try, half hoping that it would at least calm it down. Well, let me tell you what it did! The first three weeks it drastically calmed it down and cut the acne in half. A month later and I have A CLEAR BOTTOM!!!!! I am writing this comment because I’m in the process of ordering my second bottle! My husband laughs when he sees me now checking out my smooth and clear butt in the mirror! Oh the freedom that comes with it! It comes out like a lotion with no scent that I notice. I can use it on my shoulders, face, and butt. It’s not moisturizing but it also doesn’t leave you dry. I use a very light and sensitive moisturizer after use. Can be used daily!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in two sizes). Cruelty-free.

    16. A pack of three nylon brushes you attach to your drill for a super scrub you thought was only possible by professionals.

    Promising review: "Save yourself a lot of money — DIY your own grout! Saved myself hundreds of dollars! Have you ever priced those grout cleaning companies? Crazy! Did it myself — a section at a time, but did a large home in two days and the results were amazing. I consider myself a 'clean' person, vacuuming and mopping several times a week. The dirt these brushes got up from my floors was amazing (and disgusting). Recommended them to my friends that night at dinner!" —Mary

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in six bristle types).

    17. A weekly Wet & Forget Shower Cleaner that requires no scrubbing — just spray it on your shower surfaces after you shower and rinse it off during your next shower. It'll clean away in between.,

    Promising review: "This WET AND FORGET Shower cleaner is really amazing. I was completely skeptical that any cleaner would work without scrubbing but decided it was worth a try. I first tried it on my fiberglass shower stall and was surprised at how well it works. It is just so easy to spray on after a shower and as the name says, forget. Before my next shower, I just let the water run for a while and use the handheld sprayer to complete the rinsing process so I am not standing in the cleaner. I then tried it on my tile shower stall and it works equally well. I just wish that I could find cleaners for other chores that are so easy to use and that do such a good job." —Bichon Mom

    Get it from Amazon for $16.89.

    18. A microplane foot file to easily (and instantly) remove that dry cracked skin from your feet.,,

    Promising review: "After comparing foot files and reading the reviews, I decided to order this foot file. Living with chronic pain conditions has made it almost impossible to get out and go to the nail salon on a regular basis. I needed a way that I could 'maintain' my feet in between pedicure appointments, and purchasing this foot file was definitely a great decision. I couldn't believe how well and easily it removed the dead skin from the bottom of my feet. The only other product that I used was a tiny amount of callus remover to help remove the unwanted dry skin. I couldn't believe how well it worked and my feet felt so much better. I would highly recommend using caution when it comes to the amount of skin that you slough off. Otherwise, you could remove too many layers of skin, leaving your feet sensitive to touch or painful when walking on them. If you are looking for a way to maintain your feet on your own then look no further! The price is competitive, the quality is top-notch, and it couldn't be any easier to use." —Amy

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    19. A microfiber blinds duster designed with spaced-out fingers so you can brush along every slat of your blinds in a totally painless process.,

    Promising review: "I love this product!! It works fantastic! I am a housekeeper for several private homes. My least favorite job is cleaning window blinds! I have used about every method there is, but the job is still very time-consuming. The main reason it takes so long is you must clean each and every slat separately to do the job right. Not any more! With this product, you can clean two slats at once and it cleans them the first swipe! The microfiber is the key to getting all the dust and the design of the product makes it super easy! PLUS this tool can be used on different types of blinds because it is flexible! I have used it on wooden shutters, plastic vertical patio door blinds, and horizontal metal 'mini' blinds. Additionally, the microfiber 'sleeve' that fits on the tool is washable and it comes with five of them so it's a real value, being reusable and with so many to use it should last a long time before they all completely wear out! This product deserves 10 stars!" —Sandy D

    Get the brush and five microfiber sleeves from Amazon for $7.99.

    20. A 100% natural Oven Cleaning Kit, complete with oven scrub, all-purpose cleaners, and a metallic sponge, to really get at the build-up in your enamel ovens, rack, and even the glass panel on the door — it's made in small batches, and totally safe for your family, pets, and home.

    21. A set of Gorilla Grip Adhesive Grippers designed specifically to help keep your pesky rug corners in place and prevent any slipping, sliding, or tripping.

    A image of grippers on an area rug being placed down on hardwood floors

    Promising review: "So I am going to point out things I was wondering about before I bought these for myself. Do I think these will be great for removing, cleaning under, putting back? Probably not. Not surprising to me since it's basically just a very strong tape. I put mine on tile and have no intention of moving them. I'll clean around them. Secondly, the adhesion is crazy. I don't expect to need to replace these any time soon. Six months to a year maybe? But what you need to know is that they will NOT work for all floorings. If you're adding a rug to carpet, these strips will likely remove carpet fibers and possibly leave a sticky residue you'll never get up. If you have laminate or vinyl, it could very well pull up the design of your floor. If you're adding to a wood that isn't very well lacquered, you could end up damaging the floor trying to get the adhesive off. So, I might limit the use of these to tile or concrete. This also means you might want to be careful what rugs you attach them to. If they're cheap, the strips may very well rip off the backing. All in all, I'm extremely impressed with them. For what I needed them for, they're perfect. I will buy again once these inevitably get pulled up and dirty by my filthy children." —Stephanie

    22. A leather cleaner can help freshen up your couch, chairs...ottomans — any of your leather goods INCLUDING faux leather.

    Promising review: “I bought a sorta-white leather sectional for $150 stained and dirty but no major wear or tears. Well, the pictures (above) tell it all! It took at least three cycles of gentle scrubbing and wiping off raised dirt and a little extra for bad stains! A lot of elbow grease but holy crap! Super-nice couch now!” —iPoutside365

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in two sizes).

    23. A vegan laundry stain remover that'll get out stains, dirt, grease... blood — whatever, I don't know your life! It basically will get all of those hard-to-get stains out without the use of any harsh chemicals. Just wet the stained area of clothing with water and rub the stain stick over it. Then wash it with the rest of your laundry — but you don't need to wash it immediately. So if you decide to put your laundry off a little longer it'll still totally work.

    Shady Creek Farm NC on Etsy

    Promising review: “Our kitty cat had an upset tummy and on the first night we had our brand-new white organic quilt, threw up quite a bit on it. I had little faith in it working, but amazingly, my first try with it and IT WORKED 100%!!! I AM A CUSTOMER FOR LIFE! 😍” —michelemassoni

    24. An all-in-one Hang-O-Matic picture hanging tool so anything you decide to put on your walls is totally level — and you don't have to do the walk of shame back to your walls to drill a second set of holes.,

    Promising review: "While hanging shelves and frames and other wall decorations shouldn't be rocket science, I make things more complicated than they should be. Leveling is where I normally falter. With the Hang-O-Matic it becomes an exact science! It's so simple to use! I've hung over 10 items on our walls this past weekend and it was a breeze with this tool. Just measure, put the tape to the wall where you want it, ensure your tape is level, and then push the marker pins in to know where you need to put in your anchors/hooks. When you're doing it solo, this tool is absolutely priceless!" —Shameel Kumar

    25. A pack of Weiman Stainless Steel Cleaning Wipes capable of getting your grimy sink and appliances to sparkle with just the tiniest bit of elbow grease. They can get rid of fingerprints, residue, water marks, and so much more.

    Promising review: “I had been online looking at different methods for cleaning my stainless steel appliances with not a lot of success. I finally decided to check Amazon when I came across these wipes. I wish I had taken a before-and-after but after just lightly wiping my stove it looks brand new and the same for my refrigerator. There are streaks on the initial wipe but they dry very quickly. I can't say enough good things about these wipes. They are a perfect way to keep all your stainless steel looking sparkling new.” —Hamhock

    27. A bazinga-worthy T-shirt folding board that'll have the inside of your drawers look like Marie Kondo's dream come true., Amazon

    Promising review: "My first reaction? 'Why did I buy this?' Then I opened the box and wasn't too convinced about the way it looked, as some edges look like they would quickly snap with use. Then I gave it a try with a couple of shirts I had just washed and next thing you know I simply had to do my entire drawer! Everything folds so pretty, neat, and easy. I still couldn't believe it, so I ended up organizing our bedsheets and towels. I am amazed at how much of a game-changer this is. Must try! I am in love with how beautiful it left my clothes." —Jesus Antonio Vedia

    28. A versatile Katzco Furniture Repair Kit complete with six wood markers and six wax sticks all designed to match whatever wood you need fixed., Amazon

    Promising review: "Despite our consistent efforts, it took almost a year to teach our new dog to not jump up on the back door. And as you can see in the first picture, he managed to do a lot of scratching. That's why I bought this marker kit, to repair those scratches. I used 'oak,' a lighter color, on the scratches. I did have to go over them again to completely cover them. That's what you see in the second picture, and it took me about 10 minutes total. I bought the kit with the wax crayons as I hoped to fill in the scratches too, I read in another review that it's possible but takes a lot of work. Unless I'm looking for the defects, I no longer notice the scratches (and mind you, these are at eye level) so this did the job I wanted." —P. Ratliff

    A customer review before and after photo of their car with bumper with stickers and then with no bumper stickers

    Promising review: "Bought a used car to get back and forth to work. Only problem being the back was covered in bumper stickers. Eleven to be exact. I don't like bumper stickers. At all. This removed all of them in 25 to 30 minutes total, no problem. Still has probably half the wheel left so I stuck it in my garage toolbox in case I need to eradicate any bummer stickers in the future." —PrestidgeSouthside

    31. A simple to install TV wall mount that doesn't require any studs for installations — well besides you of course.


    Promising review: "This product is extremely easy to install yourself on almost any type of wall because it distributes the weight so well. It works on drywall or plaster. I double-checked the position by sliding the provided level across the wall and started by putting one nail in the center and then carefully at one end using the level. Once I was sure it was level, I carefully put in a half dozen more. You don’t need to use all of the nails provided! After I hung the TV I realized that one side seemed a little higher than the other and I took the TV off and realized I just needed to make sure the screws on the back of the TV were positioned properly." —Venona

    32. A jar of TICARVE Dust Cleaning Gel perfect for getting deep into every dusty, crumby area and leaving it totally spotless.

    @lollyjaneblog / Via, Amazon

    Promising review: "People told me not to buy this and that it didn't work. Boy were they wrong. I just bought a brand new Toyota Tacoma and it is somehow a perpetual dust magnet. The gauges fill up with dust. Everything...dust. This is the best solution I have found for it. It works wonderfully and leaves no residue. Don't drag the goo, just press and pull, press and pull. I plan to have one of these in each of my vehicles at all times from now on." —Amazon Customer

    A customer review photo showing their outdoor chairs cleaned with and without the stain remover

    Promising review: "I don't often write a review of a product. But this was so impressive, I thought I should let others know. We have a set of vinyl outdoor chairs that were constantly covered with mildew. When we were feeling ambitious, we'd take the time to power wash the chairs, which worked pretty well but was a lot of work. The problem was that a couple of days later, the mildew was back almost as bad a before. With this mildew stain remover, we sprayed the chairs, let them sit a few minutes, and hosed off with a regular garden hose. Easy. And they were cleaner than they ever got using the power washer. When we put the chairs away two months later, they were still clean." —Christine A. Simonson

    34. A pack of Nano Towels made of a miraculous eco fabric that cleans almost anything with just some water. Yupp. Just soak it in some regular ol' water and watch the dirt, stains, nastiness, disappear.

    Promising review: "What they say is sooooooo true. I hate hate hate streaky windows. These towels leave NO streaks. Windows looked like there was no glass in them. Cleaned my black stove. Again no streaks. My stainless steel sparkles. I took one in the shower with me and wiped down the walls and tub. Oh, and I have a beige suede-like couch that my hubby leaves blackness on. Rubbed a damp towel on it and GONE. Even the furniture shampoo hadn't worked. These deserve 100 stars." —Bernie Wilbanks

    35. A guided gallery wall kit includes everything you need to create one — including seven frames, a hanging template, hardware, and even some pretty black-and-white prints that you can use or replace.

    Promising review: "I love this set! It was delivered quickly, all of the frames and glass came in perfect condition. My favorite part of the entire thing was the guide it came with. After putting the pictures in the frames, I hung the guide, made sure it was level, and drilled the holes right into the paper. Everything came out level, the frames and pictures look great. Definitely happy with this purchase." —Cristina C Sanchez

    36. A super convenient toy mat that cinches up when playtime is over to make clean up totally effortless.


    Promising review: "This is the product I didn’t know I always needed. The little map is so cute and both my one-year-old and four-year-old enjoy playing. The best part is when they’re done I just pull the drawstring and clean up is over. It makes moving the play space and cleaning up so easy. I wish I found this before. Highly recommend." —Anonymous

    37. An awesome faucet splash catcher — it fits perfectly around your faucets and will help absorb some of that water that inevitably gets everywhere every time you try to do the dishes.

    A customer review photo of their HyperChiller next to a glass of iced coffee

    Promising review: "Truly, I thought this was a gimmick. Spoiler: it’s not. It really works. And it doesn’t make my coffee taste bitter like putting it in the fridge or freezer does. I am so impressed!" —Cassandra Mercedes Broadwater 

    "I use this for coffee, tea, and alcohol, and it's made my life so much easier. My preference is always iced coffee over hot, but it's hard to do iced coffee without it getting watered down or taking forever. I usually just drink coffee at the Starbucks where I work, but the easiness of the hyper chiller has me drinking it at home much more often. It cools really fast, almost never taking the full 60 seconds that are recommended. This is one of my favorite coffee tools, and the instructions made it easy to put together." —Sarah Larson

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in five colors). 

    39. A bottle of L'Oreal Paris Elvive 8 Second Wonder Water Lamellar, a rinse-out moisturizing hair treatment that can leave your hair silkier and shinier than you've ever seen it.


    Promising review: "I don’t usually do reviews on products, but for this one, I absolutely have to. I have 3c type hair and struggle with a lot of breakage, unmanageability, and moisture. When my mom mentioned this product to me I didn’t take her seriously because of the simple fact that we have two completely different hair textures. I never would have thought this brand would work on my hair. I have always used ethnic hair products and stayed away from brands such as this one because of the alcohol consumption. I have never in my 22 years felt my hair like this. I feel like I have a completely different head of hair. This product is so amazing and I will FOREVER be using this product in my hair regimen. Thank you so much!! ♥️" —Theressa Hailey

    40. A dishwasher-safe apple slicer that'll make cutting up apples so freakin' easy — seriously, we have them at the BuzzFeed office and it makes slicing up an apple for a snack SO FREAKIN' EASY. It takes like two seconds!

    A person cutting an apple with the slicer

    Promising review: "Seriously, why has this never been invented before? It's the best thing in the history of apples! It cuts the apples in perfect sizes for kids (and even me), and the bottom base to push the blade all the way down is a game-changer. I always hated cutting apples because the last push was annoying and made slices fly everywhere. This is easy and keeps them all mostly attached. Love love love it!" —jbug

    Get it from Amazon for $10.58 (also available for eggs).

    41. A pack of bed sheet suspenders can keep those pesky bed corners covered.


    Promising review: "These are definitely worth the price. My significant other and I apparently run marathons in our sleep, so the fitted sheet and mattress pad came off the bed without fail. We own a double pillow-top mattress and they haven't stretched out while holding a fitted sheet (that shrunk in the wash), plus two mattress pads. They hold them firmly to the bed with no slipping. No damage has been done to the sheets, either." —Michelle

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in standard and XL sizes and in three colors).

    42. A calming lavender sleep mask designed to work at hydrating and calming your skin while you sleep — it's for folks with sensitive skin so you don't have to worry about it being too harsh.

    Promising review: "This stuff is great. It's like gel, goes on clear, and absorbs fast so there's no mess when you wake up in the morning — plus it smells AMAZING! It left my skin totally smooth and not greasy, pores look great. Even noticed a difference with foundation. Makeup goes on way easier." —Disco

    Get it from Amazon for $15 (available in five scents).

    43. A pack of Miracle-Gro plant food spikes designed to help give your leafy green friends the yummy nutrients they need (for up to two months) — and since now you'll have a plant that doesn't die the second it comes into your home, you'll need to keep buying these nutritious little sticks.

    Promising review: "I have several houseplants that had stopped flowering, so I put a few of these spikes in the pot (there are directions on the back of package for quantity), and approximately a month after using these spikes, my peace lily had three flowers on it, and my African violets plants all got several blooms on them! This worked wonders for my plants that don't flower also! I noticed that my ivy and cactus plants started growing faster, and they became greener and more healthy-looking. I am very happy with this product, and I will buy it again." —Elizabeth

    44. A super bubbly Glisten Disposer Care Foaming Drain and Pipe Cleaner that'll safely deodorize your garbage disposal while it scrubs away any tough grunge or build-up that causes your sink to back up and maybe even smell a little bit. It comes in a biodegradable packet that you can just drop in.,

    Promising review: "My new apartment's garbage disposal is slower than most just from the make of it. After using these packets, the garbage disposal cleans SO much quicker and, not to mention, watching the blue foam is beyond satisfying! 10/10 would recommend." —Cindy D

    Get a bag of four from Amazon for $3.98.

    45. An intensely moisturizing overnight lip treatment made with coconut and jojoba oils to help hydrate your pout during the only time of the day you're not running it.

    The jar of the lip treatment laid out on a marble counter

    Promising review: "It works wonderfully during the night while I'm sleeping. It smells so good and it makes my lips so soft during the night. I wake up with the softest lips ever. I will order more soon for my mom and for my sister. I'm really very impressed with the results. Excellent price for excellent quality. Truly recommend." —TATIANA

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    46. A set of shredder claws, because who actually has time to wait for meat to cool before they handle or start shredding it? Not me, and I have the burned fingertips to prove it.

    The claws being used to shred meat

    Promising review: "Works well for shredding larger portions of meat, like pork. Plastic appears to be of higher quality. Sufficient room in the opening for most finger and hand sizes. The pointed tips shouldn't cause injury unless you're careless. I'd highly recommend the use of quality protective gloves; you're not only dealing with the mess of shredding itself but also, most likely, some elevated temperature food." —Legardi11

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

    47. A pack of Drainwigs designed to catch all the hair that would normally clog up your drains.


    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.

    48. A tube of Essence Lash Princess Mascara can leave you with lashes that look so damn long people will think you're wearing falsies — but you're not! And you didn't have the struggle of trying to put on fake lashes., Amazon

    Promising review: "After using Lights, Camera, Lashes by Tarte for the past year, I got tired of breaking the bank over mascara. My sister suggested Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. It provides dramatic length and great volume. I can honestly say I can’t stop looking at my eyelashes in the mirror every single day because of how awesome they look. Also, it is very long-wearing. I go from an eight-hour workday right to the gym and sweat like crazy...and this stuff doesn’t budge! I love it!!" —Carrie E Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    49. A long-lasting (four months) Terro Garbage Guard that'll release a deep penetrating vapor to kill insects and prevent infestations in your trash can. It comes with an adhesive strip for easy attachment to the can lid. It can be used on both outdoor and garage trash cans, dumpsters, and trash bins.,

    Promising review: "We had maggots in the outside garbage can several weeks in a row. It’s been two weeks now without anything but a bunch of dead flies (see pic). Instead of sticking it to the lid (which seems like it would just fall in), I hang it from a short string with binder clips on each end and then take it out on garbage day." —Cindy

    Get it from Amazon for $7.67.

    50. A bottle of specially formulated Bar Keepers Friend Multipurpose Cooktop Cleaner to really get deep down in there and remove stubborn hard water mineral deposits, grease, and grime while restoring shine.

    Promising review: "This stuff is worth every penny. My kitchen appliances look brand new! Easily removes old baked-on grease from stove, and pots and pans. I’m most pleased with the stains it took out of the bathtub. I had been battling dark stains in the tub since I moved in my house two years ago. I tried everything! This product removed the stains almost effortlessly. I even used it on some of my jewelry." —AlleyCat

    Get it from Amazon for $8.22.

    51. A super intense grout cleaner that'll get rid of years and years... and years of gross build-up.

    A customer review before and after photo of their tiled floor with dirty grouts and then completely white

    Promising review: "We moved into our house a year ago and I’ve been on a quest to clean the grout next to the stove ever since then. I’ve tried everything — store products, DIY solutions, Pinterest recommendations, you name it. As a last resort I got this and holy cow! I left it on for three minutes as a spot test at first and I could already see a huge difference. I then did two more rounds letting it sit for five minutes each. The scent's not bad, it was fine if I had the window open, it was just being down close to it that got me. Seriously, stop looking and buy this." —Britney Phillips

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

    52. A bottle of Better Life Natural Tub and Tile Cleaner — a natural, plant-based cleaner that dissolves soap scum, rust, mold, mildew, hard water stains, and mineral deposits. But the best part is its eucalyptus and tea tree scent.

    A customer review photo showing half their shower floor cleaned

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing!! I was skeptical at first because I have these dark stains on my shower floor that I’ve never been able to get out and was thinking something 'natural' wouldn’t be heavy-duty enough for it. I cleaned half the shower at first because I wanted to see how it looked compared to the dirty side and it did an amazing job with only a little bit of elbow grease! You can see the difference." —Katherine Cheng

    Get two bottles from Amazon for $6.99.

    53. A bottle of Bar Keepers Friend Cleanser and Polish to get your stainless steel (and literally almost all surfaces) free of rust, tarnish, mineral deposits, and tough stains — your stuff will be shining like new!

    The cleanser is nonabrasive, bleach-free, and effective on stainless steel, porcelain, ceramic, copper alloys, fiberglass, corian, brass, bronze, chrome, and aluminum surfaces.

    Promising review: "As you can see in the photo, it’s safe to say this stuff works. I left it on for a little while, and when I came back, this was the result after fewer than two minutes of scrubbing!" —Donette

    Get it from Amazon for $6.79.

    54. A heavy-duty rust stain remover so you can see what color your shower actually is — hint, it's not an orangey-brown.

    Promising review: "The photos speak for themselves. When we bought our home there was no water softener and years of iron buildup. We tried so many things on our shower. Nothing worked. We were convinced we’d be stuck until we renovated the bathroom. But this worked wonders. I still can’t believe it. We had to let it sit for about an hour, then it dissolved and wiped right off. Definitely use in a ventilated area if possible." —M. Gilardi
