    Promising review: "It's such a relief to have this! I've been folding a pillow in half to put under my knees for my lower back pain/sciatica, and this is 100x better. I used it within 12 hours of getting it — didn't notice a smell and it was firm and full enough for me. The manufacturer does note that it takes up to 48 hours to decompress." —Xanthe

    Promising review: "I almost never get away without a headache after a glass of wine, even white. I like wine so that stinks. BUT, I decided this wasn’t awfully expensive to experiment with, and I’m glad I did. It really does work. For ME, if it’s a really dense red wine I need at least five drops or I might feel a twinge. That’s an acceptable return on investment!" —Yolanda Collard

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    4. Try a pair of copper-infused arch supports for help with swelling and to increase circulation — it also helps give some relief to arch and heel issues by lifting the plantar fascia tissue.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I put these on after they came in the mail, wore them for about an hour, then as I was resting on the couch, I fell into the kind of deep sleep that one only dreams of. This was the most epic, most restorative nap I can remember. The kind of nap Joey Tribbiani and Ross Geller had in Friends. I am kinda afraid to take them off now. I wear them with my flip-flops, under my socks in tennis shoes, and to bed. My feet feel great. As for whether or not they contributed to my most perfect nap, I don't know for sure, but I'm rolling with it." —Texas Sandra Dee

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    5. Make your bathroom feel like a spa with a bundle of fresh eucalyptus you place in your shower — the steam from your hot water helps the soothing fragrance release and fill the air.

    6. Spend some time cleaning up the precious jewelry you already have with a Diamond Dazzle Stik — this will help polish your jewels and make them shine bright like...well, like a diamond.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Don't get me wrong, my wedding ring was gorgeous before. It did sparkle and still made me smile every day. However, after using this Diamond Dazzle Stik, oh my goodness! After one use my ring is absolutely breathtaking! I knew my ring got dirty now and then, simply from sweating and being outside in the elements. However, I never realized just how much dinge and schmutz marred my beautiful diamond until I cleaned it — it literally took my breath away with its fiery, dazzling brilliance! This thing is an amazing value with mind-blowing, beautiful results!" —liltreeclimber

    7. If you're prone to bug bites, stop suffering and get a bug bite suction tool that'll remove the venom from any stings and help reduce itchiness, pain, and swollenness.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am a magnet for bites of all kinds and carry topical and medicines with me at all times — so I figured this would be a good product to see if it really works. It arrived on Monday and on Tuesday morning I woke up with a bug bite on my arm. I used this little tool (3x per the instructions) and documented with photos. Immediately after using it, it stopped itching! And less than 24 hours later the bump/bite was gone! There is a very faint red mark from using the thing but a small price to pay IMO. Bottom line: it’s awesome. I’m carrying it with me everywhere!" —Rebecca

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95 (available in two colors).

    8. Help prevent back pain with a comfortable, adjustable, and easy-to-use posture corrector designed to assist with your back's alignment and stability. In time, it develops your back's muscle memory which will then hold your back straight even without it. It's also discreet enough to wear under your shirt or blouse.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have back issues. Serious ones. Aside from the degeneration and bulging discs, I have an awful hunch that seems to be getting progressively worse since I had my baby. I wouldn't be surprised if I'm walking around looking like the 'Crooked Man' soon enough! Apart from how I look, I am also in constant pain and taking pain medication all day is not an option for me. My doctor suggested a posture corrector to see if I could get any relief at all and although I wasn't very optimistic, I gave it a shot. It took a couple of days to get used to it but I'm so glad I took his advice!! It helps my posture a great deal and my doctor said he attributes the pain relief I feel in my neck and low back to my posture being better. It helps my body remember not to slouch and in doing so has also helped my quality of life immensely!! Highly recommended! Seriously!!" —Corinne Cruz

    Get it from Amazon for $11.97.

    9. Make washing dishes super easy with a pair of reusable silicone gloves designed with scrubbers on the palm so you can scrub away all those messes while protecting your hands.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was a bit skeptical when purchasing these gloves, but the reviews were excellent so I went ahead and bought them. I am so glad I did. I have small hands, but these gloves fit fine. Two things I really love about these gloves — water does not seep inside (a pet peeve of mine) and they are easy to get on and off repeatedly (second pet peeve is when you need to wait until the gloves dry to get your hands back in them). The gloves do an excellent job cleaning the dishes and kitchen. I have not used them to do other rooms in the house but will be purchasing another pair to tackle other cleaning jobs." —Babs

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

    10. Stop suffering through your mornings and get yourself a dishwasher-safe airtight cold-brew maker that'll give you a nice pick-me-up right out of your fridge.

    amazon.com

    Includes a detachable infuser, lid, and pitcher. BPA-free and dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "I received my first Takeya cold-brew maker as a gift for Christmas. I like it so much I bought another. It's easy to use and very easy to clean, plus it makes my morning coffee more palatable. It was well-packaged, has easy-to-follow instructions, and will get lots of use at my house. One of the best features is that it can be turned upside down with no leakage." —J. Lloyd

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in two sizes and three colors). And don't forget the coffee!

    11. Help spot treat any pimples with a pack of hydrocolloid, tea tree, calendula oil, and CICA-infused acne patches — just place them over any that pop up on your face and watch as they disappear in no time.

    amazon.com

    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 $7.79 (available in small and extra large sizes).

    12. Get a pack of bra strap clips to hold everything in place and stop you from doing the grab for your sliding straps every 20 seconds. As we get into the warmer months, these are especially great for any tank tops!

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "Since I started using these clips, I haven't had to pull up my straps a single time! I used to have to pull them back up a dozen times a day. No more. Now I can put on my bra and then just forget that it is there. I don't notice any change in the fit of my bra. I wear a large cup size and the last thing I wanted was to add to that. However, with the straps fully extended on my bra, I find the fit to be essentially the same as before. The only difference is that the straps stay in place. If you've ever struggled to keep your straps up, you owe it to yourself to try this product." —K. Howe

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $6.97+ (available in nine options).

    13. Keep your vaccine card protected with a leather holder — it also has a key ring for safe travels in the event you need to bring it with you somewhere.

    A customer review photo of the draft stopper on their door
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I wanted something that would keep the noise out, to be honest. I live in a small NYC apartment with roommates, and have French doors. I wanted something to fit underneath that would serve specifically to reduce noise, but also not be a pain when I opened and closed the doors. It works wonderfully! It reduces the noise level from the outside, and vice versa. The talking and TV in the living room are muted, and I have been told my phone conversations are quieter! So perfect for what I needed!" —Meagan

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in three colors).

    15. Make your life so much easier with a simple pack of adhesive cable clips that'll finally detangle all your cords while making sure that they're easily accessible.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "It was always a pain to reach down the side of my bed to reach my chargers, not to mention the wad of cables I’d have to sift through just to charge my phone. I finally searched for a solution and came across these. They’re great! They’re really easy to stick on and they stay in place. I haven’t had an issue of them falling off. Whenever I need to charge a device they’re right next to me, easy to reach and untangled. I definitely recommend!" —Nelis Perez

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $6.97.

    16. Get a very handy Instant Pot Magnetic Cheat Sheet Set filled with so much useful information — like cooking times and liquid ratios — you can make your favorite Instant Pot recipes even easier than before.

    The Instant Pot Magnetic Cheat Sheet Set
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I am so happy that I decided to give this product a try! What an amazing idea. I placed the smaller magnet right on the Instant Pot and use it daily for a quick reference. Instead of searching the cookbook or internet, I can just glance over and know in an instant how to program my IP for that particular product." —Olesya R

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

    17. Give your look a pop of color with a bold lip. Vive Cosmetics matte liquid lipsticks have deliciously rich shades that will not rub off. Wear your mask, eat to your heart's content — it'll survive it! If you're anything like me and love a red lip but also love to eat 23 out of the 24 hours in a day, this is the lip of your dreams. This. Is. It.

    Vive Cosmetics, Instagram: @vivecosmetics

    Promising review: "I used to buy Jeffrey Star's lip colors but (for reasons) needed to find another company to support who had vivid, long-lasting colors. Luchadora is the first color I've purchased from VIVE but it definitely won't be the last. This color is FAR BETTER than any other brand I've tried. It lasts ALL day and doesn't start cracking or caking. It out performs JS's, Sephora's, KVD's, and Ulta brand colors. So eat those tacos, drink that aguas frescas, and kiss your partner because this lipstick don't QUIT! I fricken love it!" —Sandra

    Get them from Vive Cosmetics for $20 (vegan and cruelty-free).

    18. If you struggle to get to sleep because of all the bright lights from your electronics get a pack of light dimming stickers designed specifically to cover those constant blinking LED lights that brighten your room.

    A customer review photo of the lights on their device before and after placing the stickers
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is the best thing you never knew you needed. I own a digital clock with the numbers displayed in red LED light, and every night I've blocked the light with a cover so it doesn't shine in my eyes as I sleep. Silly I know, but I like my room pitch black and cave-like. On a whim, I bought this product. OH MY GOD! Game-changer!! For the first night EVER I didn't have to cover the clock display before I went to bed!! I had no idea how big a difference this little dimmer could make, but I'm more than pleased with the result. I can still see the time display just fine, but now my room is a happy cave! Some commenters argue you could get the same effect using electrical tape, regular tape covered in sharpie, etc, but true to the name of these products if you're looking for something to DIM, then this is for you. Also, the product is easy to remove and doesn't leave a sticky residue at all, which can't be said for most tapes. I did notice a slight lag in response when I covered my TV LED sensor, so if you're trying to block something that actually senses inputs I would maybe not suggest this. Other than that, excellent product!" —Amazon Customer

    Get a sheet of over 100 dimming stickers (in multiple sizes and shapes) from Amazon for $7.89.

    19. Get organized with a set of shelf dividers for your cabinets, closets, or shelves where you maybe store your linens or anything that needs its own little space — they slide right onto the shelf.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was a little doubtful about these being able to stand up straight but was pleasantly surprised. I'm using them in an old antique cabinet/wardrobe to separate stacks of clothes that would otherwise turn into a pile of clothes on a shelf. I would definitely buy again." —the booniepepper

    Get it from Amazon for $12+ (available in two colors).

    20. Never have to struggle with your falling glasses again with a set of attachable Keepons ear hooks — they'll make sure your glasses always stay in place and don't slide down to the tip of your nose.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I highly recommend these Keepons. They do exactly what they say they do: keep my glasses in place. And I love that they are totally invisible. Much better than the rubber bands I was using before. 😀 I carefully measured the legs of my glasses before purchasing these and they were the right size. I ran them under hot water to make them more pliable and it was relatively easy to put them on the legs of my glasses. I've been wearing them for almost a day and find them very comfortable now that I have adjusted them to my liking." —ScotTex

    Get a pack of 20 pairs from Amazon for $6.99.

    21. Stop dealing with loose (dirty) laces and get a pair of no-tie elastic laces designed to keep your favorite sneakers securely on without the struggle of having to lace and unlace them every time.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "We absolutely love these! I purchased these for my 14-year-old son because I was tired of seeing his shoes untied and dragging laces. They are perfect. They are elastic but are not flimsy. They keep a firm hold while easily stretching to get the shoe on. These are so durable that my son even wears them for PE with no flopping issues; they keep his shoes firmly fitted. Fourteen-year-old boys tend to be rough on their shoes and these laces have held up perfectly. You can't even tell they are elastic, they look like regular shoelaces. I work at a chocolate factory and learned about these from the owner and his son who both wear them day in, day out at the factory. They were impressed so I had to give them a try for my son. I would definitely buy these again." —Maria Gutierrez

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 38 colors).

    22. Keep unsightly cords hidden with a genius and super discreet three-outlet power strip that's designed to look like your already existing plug while helping you keep the cords organized.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Did y’all know they made these?!? Okay, I was moving some furniture around in the guest room and my beautiful bride just wasn’t happy with how far the dresser stood out from the wall because of the TV plug. She said there has to be some way to fix that in this day and time. Know what? She was right! I did some searching on the old internet and found these. I put it on the outlet behind the dresser and shoved it into place. Just so y’all know, the wall plug is indeed flat and it’s designed to cover the whole plug when you use it. Please don’t ask me how thin or thick it is, cause I already put it behind the dresser and I dang shore ain’t about to pull it out to measure it for someone’s question. Just know that it’s flatter’n a bug in a windscreen and works great!" —James P.

    Get it from Amazon for $23.95+ (available in three sizes and with or without surge).

    23. Make cooking a little easier with a handy heat-resistant chopper to finally break up that package of ground meat, allowing it to cook evenly.

    amazon.com

    Non-stick and dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "I've been eyeing this same tool from Pampered Chef but it's so pricey I didn't want to take the plunge. When I found this one on Amazon and saw how much more reasonably priced it was, I decided to go for it. I've used it a few times since purchasing and it is awesome! Works just as well as I envisioned the pricier version to work and I love that it didn't cost an arm and a leg. I am happy that this comes in red as it matches the other kitchen tools and theme of my kitchen! Thanks for making cooking with ground meat so much simpler." —Genetics

    Get it from Amazon for $6.91+ (available in three colors).

    24. Don't forget to drink enough water throughout the day with this 20 oz. water bottle designed to help you keep track of exactly how much you're drinking and make sure you're staying hydrated — just slide a colorful band up each time you finish the water in a full bottle!

    A customer review photo of them holding the bottle with the text, "Freaking killing it today, y'all."
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love this water bottle. The concept of using the bands to help you keep track of how much you've drunk is GENIUS. I HATE using apps because I forget to put what I've drunk after I'm done drinking it. This is so simplistic but so great. Drink a whole bottle, sweet! Put a band on your wrist. They're cute, colorful, and comfy. If you have a lot of arm hair they might pinch and tug your arm. This bottle isn't meant to be tipped over though. It leaked a little when it would fall over with the straw, which makes sense. Duh! The straw isn't airtight to the bottle. Cute, stylish, and simplistic in its ways of keeping track of water intake. Love." —Ana T.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.78+ (available in six colors, four sizes, and two designs).

    25. Try a super relaxing acupressure mat and pillow massage set designed with thousands of spikes that are precisely located to gently press into your back, neck, and head helping you release tension in your muscles.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This mat is amazing. It seems a little intimidating at first. I love the fact that it is longer because I am taller. The first time I used it I felt a headache coming on and by the time I was finished, there was no headache! The second time I set a timer because it states not to use it for more than 15 minutes. I almost fell asleep! Definitely recommended!" —Amazon Customer

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've struggled with the #2 for the last couple years. I've gone from Defecating Toxic Avenger to 'Dear GOD! I feel like I'm passing the Twin King Guardian Statues'. It's been a sphincter nightmare. No matter what I tried: prunes, more water, high fiber, Taco Bell, even White Castle — nothing was working. Usually, in a three-week interval, I'd get very sick and spend three to four hours going to the bathroom nine or 10 times. After my sphincter would be tender and I'm damn near positive if this had gone on, it would be the end of me. Then I saw this. I decided to go ahead and plunk down the $25. By day two of using it, I started to feel better and my cramps were gone. I swear to god, when I go on my next road trip, I'm taking the damn thing with me, and IDGAF if my friends laugh at me. This damn thing may have saved my health and possibly my life." —DJ_Malsidious

    amazon.com

    Tablets are biodegradable, chlorine-free, all-natural, and environmentally safe. They're individually packaged, and don't require any additional brushing or scrubbing. Good for use on stainless-steel bottles, mugs, hydration reservoirs, coolers, dishes, and hard-to-clean plastic containers and bottles.

    Promising review: "In all fairness, I first heard of this product while watching Shark Tank, and their pitch was impressive so I gave the underdog a try. Now, I'm on my fourth re-order. My whole family drinks out of various name brand bottles, coffee mugs, etc. The fact is, they are rarely cleaned because they are a part of our daily lives and they are a pain in the ar$e to clean, because of the inconvenience that they are not dishwasher-safe, or don't fit. The answer is these tablets. They work and they're simple to use." —K.R.

    Get a pack of 12 tablets from Amazon for $6.88.

    29. Try a very comfy stability cushion designed to fit on top of any chair and help you improve your posture.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My job requires me to sit practically all day at work, which caused me to become very restless and give me back problems. I couldn't sit still for five minutes without adjusting myself. I also began to worry about the bad posture I could be having because of it as well. I found this and gave it a shot. I've only had it for a little more than a week but the difference with it has been amazing! I can sit at my desk all day long without feeling discomfort or back pain. It sits neatly on my chair without looking too noticeable, and now my biggest problem is trying to keep my co-workers from stealing it from me. I think $20 for this thing is honestly a steal! So worth it!" —MeLissa

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in three colors).

    30. Get a bottle of Optix 55 Fog Gone spray which can be used to help clear up the fogginess your glasses experience when you're wearing a mask — I actually use this, and it works pretty well. The key is to make sure and gently rub it in with a lens cloth. From my experience, it doesn't stop your glasses from fogging but rather it makes the fog disappear SUPER quickly. You do have to use it every day and it's not 100% but it's WAY better than just going out there with nothing.

    Promising review: "I think I let the name hype up my expectations. I was expecting no fog at all. Afterthought, I’m not sure if that would ever be completely possible. Instead with this spray applied my glasses will fog up and instantly clear up — the fog does not linger on my lenses. I’ve been using it at work and it works out I can still see the fog literally moves across my lenses and clears up. After using this spray for a few days I’m completely satisfied. I will say I work 12-hour shifts and I have to apply this spray twice throughout my shift, usually at the 10 hr mark. I do really like this spray." —JSnyder

    Get it from Amazon for $8.95+ (available in two sizes).

    31. Make breakfast a breeze by using a genius Whiskware pancake batter mixer that's designed with a BlenderBall wire whisk — just drop in the ingredients to make your favorite pancake batter, shake up the bottle, and use the spout to drop the perfect amount onto the griddle. It's that easy!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I LOVE this thing! Breakfast has never been faster or easier! And it doesn't make noise that will wake everyone up while I am mixing. The silicone tip is real silicone (for those wondering about the pinch test) and does well against cast-iron. I have never been able to get my pancakes this fluffy until now! So great! Planning on buying more from this brand! It is also super easy to clean. The bottom comes off to fill it up and it turns into a holder for the bottle by setting the top into the bottom setting. It suggests putting in your liquid first then your mix but if making a large amount you might have to gently tap it a bit." —KC Hunter

    Get it from Amazon for $11.80 (also available in an egg shaker).

    32. Give yourself a fresh start in the morning with a ice roller whose cooling and calming effects can help lower your body temp and reduce puffiness.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This roller feels amazing on my face! It’s so refreshing, especially during this hot summer. I use it in the morning along with moisturizers. I suspect that this would help me with an onset of a migraine too." —Sandra Garza

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

    33. Stop drowning your countertops by using a genius 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.

    34. Save some cash with an awesome little handheld milk frother that'll up your at-home coffee game to the next level — it can basically froth up any milky drink (even those with dairy alternatives)!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I did not know I needed this in my life. I saw a video of someone obsessed with the drink, London Fog (Earl Grey tea, vanilla, and milk), and she offhandedly mentioned you can easily make your own if you get a frother. At home, I mostly make different versions of drip coffee because frothers seemed so 'extra' until I got this! To put this little guy together, you do need two double-A batteries. It comes with a little stand. I made a very strong drip coffee (Blue Bottle Bella Donovan), warmed up whole milk in the microwave, stuck the frother in the middle of the milk, wiggled it around a bit, added three teaspoons of sugar (I like it sweet), and it was so good!!! So perfect. Plus the side of the box has a QR code with a link to some recipes, a coupon, and it automatically registers your warranty. Pretty awesome! I’m super excited for future matcha lattes and practicing latte art. Also! My coffee shop costs like $5 almost $6 for a latte, I’m lactose intolerant so every latte I have to pay $0.70 more. I just hate that! This will save me money and I get my cozy, caffeine fix in the comfort of my own home!" —RobinFromCalifornia

    Get it from Amazon for $14.94+ (available in 31 colors).

    35. Commit to a bottle of Mavala Stop — a handy little formula that's bitter but totally harmless, so every time you put your hands in your mouth it tastes so bad that you won't want to do it again!

    Promising review: "It's a miracle! I am 45 years old and have tried every product over the years — my mom used to put everything imaginable on my fingernails to keep them out of my mouth, my grandma tried to pay me to grow my fingernails out, but still, here I was at 45 with horrible nails. This has been a miracle. I can't describe the taste but will just say that it makes me not want my hands anywhere near my face. Yes, it is difficult to eat finger food with this on — I went to Florida recently and had to have my husband peel my shrimp for me. :-) But, it is a small price to pay to break this habit. Photos are before and two weeks after using this product. I know they aren't long and beautiful yet but they are beautiful to me :-) and the longest they have ever been in my life!" —Laurie S.

    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
