    amazon.com

    Covogoods is a Utah-based, woman-founded small business that specializes in storage solutions crafted from up-cycled books.

    Promising review: "This is perfect for hiding our router and accessories in our bookcase. Love it!" —supergirl

    Get it from Covogoods on Amazon Handmade for $29.

    2. A hard-working jar of The Pink Stuff — a cleaning paste designed to get off any and every stuck, caked, and cooked-on mess you can think of.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This. Stuff. Is. Amazing. Just buy it. I have never loved a cleaning product so much. Just moved into a new house and my oven and stove both set the fire alarm off every time. No product (organic or chemical) could get them fully clean except this stuff. I was ready to buy a whole new oven because I couldn’t stand it. I have now gone on a cleaning spree and have used this to remove the rust on my kitchen sink, marker from a dresser (darn kids), grout in the bathroom. The list goes on. I would probably still use a Magic Eraser on painted wood/walls because this is pretty abrasive but other people have done it and had success. The smell/scent is so minimal. Didn’t even notice it. It’s so easy to use. Some things will require more elbow grease than others but that should be expected with any cleaning product. AND this is 99% natural and non-toxic! This part seems too good to be true because of how well it cleans." —NYC Livin

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    3. An LED sunset lamp projector designed with a 180-degree rotation to help shine just enough color onto whatever wall you want.

    Get it from Amazon for $21.59+ (available in three colors).

    4. A guided gallery wall kit that 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.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is awesome! Why isn't everyone including the outline with exactly where to put the nails? It turned out so cute, and my husband loved how easy it was to hang! Just make sure to check you're using the right size nail prior to putting holes in your wall!" —Megan Lingerfelt

    Get it from Amazon for $34.49+ (available in black, white, and walnut).

    5. A set of NoNo Brackets — curtain rod brackets you can mount to your existing blinds so that you don't have to drill any holes.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This bracket is awesome and was extremely easy to install. We were able to hang curtains over our vertical blinds in just a few minutes and didn't even need any tools. Great product!!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $14.95 (also available in brown).

    6. A USB-powered LED light strip to bring the perfect amount of ambient lighting to your TV-watching experience.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Easy to install. Lights provide ample lighting; USB allows lights to be a stand-alone fixture without tying up another wall socket. The USB interface also acts to turn the lights on and off with the TV. Backlighting also seems to make the screen seem sharper." —Shaun

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available for TVs from 24" to 80" ).

    7. A grout pen to help clean up stained and worn grout — it's also mold-resistant and covers up to 60 meters of grout area.

    A customer review photo showing the progress on their grout
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have 12-inch white tile in my whole house that is 20 years old. Even though I have kept it looking nice, the grout still was getting dark. I cleaned the grout and let it dry good 'til the next day then used the grout pen. It looks like it is brand-new. One thing that I found out was that if the tip of the pen starts to look worn you can just pull it out and turn it over — it is the same tip on both ends. It will take some time to do the whole house but it looks so great that I will just do a section at a time 'til I finish. One other thing that I did was run my finger down the grout line after I apply the grout pen then wipe down the tile line with a paper towel so no other cleanup was necessary." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in two tip sizes).

    8. Or try an acid-free grout cleaner that goes in deep to get even the dirtiest, grossest crevices so clean you'll get rid of all your furniture and just hang out on the floor.

    A customer review photo showing the progress on her grout
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Great product from what I can see. As described it does not work for soap stains, but for plain dirty grout, it makes the job as easy as possible. My bathroom grout (white tile/grout) was nasty from the previous owners of the house. About an hour on the floor with this product and the grout looks as good as ever. Spray it on, give it a minute to soak in, and scrub. You can see the dirt come up immediately. Wipe up with water and done. I'll probably make another pass to get a few spots that I didn't allow to soak in properly, but as you can see it does work well." —M. Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $14.98+ (available in a varity of size options).

    9. 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).

    10. A set of gorgeously lush velvet pillow covers on your favorite pillows to lend a little color and texture to any room in your house.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is the second set of these I've purchased (bought two different colors to change out when one set is in the laundry), and I completely love them. They are so soft, easy to put the pillows into, and they come out of the laundry looking brand new. Get a couple of different colors and switch out for holidays, or when desiring a quick easy decor change. I highly recommend them." —Melanie Mastin

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in nine sizes and in 37 colors).

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

    amazon.com

    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 $16.95+ (available in two sizes).

    12. A set of magnetic decorative hinges to give your garage door that carriage look without that carriage price — and they don't require any drilling or tools, just stick them on and bam! Instant curb appeal.

    A customer review before and after photo showing garage door with and without the hinges
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The only thing I don’t like is that kids think they are real and walk up and try to hang on the handles, which obviously just come right off. I have to admit it’s hysterical, it does teach the kids to quit messing around with things they shouldn’t because they think they break them... it’s downright comical. Other than that, you would never know they are magnetic. They stay on, you can pull them off easily to wash the doors and then just put right back on. Heavy rains and they didn’t come off. It’s -20 outside now, and they're still stuck on with no problems. I got three sets — one double door and one single door, looks perfect." —Rummy3

    Get it from Amazon for $11.66+ (available in three styles/combos).

    13. A bottle of Therapy Premium Stainless Steel Cleaner & Polish, a plant-based cleaner that'll remove streaks, smudges, and fingerprints from any stainless-steel surface. Plus it has a lovely lavender scent.

    amazon.com

    Includes a large microfiber cloth.

    Promising review: "I bought this a few days ago and I'm already in love. I grew up in a house with stainless steel appliances and I have so many memories of my mom getting so mad that nothing cleaned the stainless steel. Now I live in an apartment with stainless-steel appliances and found myself getting mad too! I told her when I ordered this and she literally said 'Good luck. Nothing works.' Well, this does! I just texted her my before and after of my oven as proof. If I recommended this to my mom, I'd recommend it to you too!" —Allison M.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95.

    14. A versatile furniture repair kit complete with six wood markers and six wax sticks all designed to match whatever wood your need fixed.

    amazon.com, 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

    Get a set of 13 markers and wax sticks from Amazon for $8.49.

    15. 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 $11.99.

    16. A bundle of faux jasmine flowers that'll add a delicate statement to any room — without the need to replace them every week.

    Promising review: "I have never used artificial flowers but these changed my mind — they are blow-you-away gorgeous! Every client comments on these. I combined these with some other silk flowers from Amazon and it's really stunning." —Lisa B

    Get a 10-piece bundle from Amazon for $18.89.

    17. A roll of very handy window screen repair tape, a temporary (or not so temporary) way to repair small cuts or tears in your screen door without having to replace the whole thing.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This RHO screen repair tape is fabulous and simple to use! Just cut to size, pull off the clear protective film, and press onto the tear or hole in your screen. That's it! There are 15 feet on a roll and it couldn't be easier. I've patched my screened porch now in five to six spots and while the tape is visible, it prevents bugs from crawling through, which was my goal. If you don't have the time, money, or inclination to completely replace a screen, this is the perfect solution...and the fastest! Will buy again in a heartbeat if I run out of this roll." —sallywally

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in two colors).

    18. 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.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "This stuff is great! We just bought a house and my hubby cleaned the jetted tub twice with a strong Clorox solution. I bought this product based on the reviews and tried it after. Look at the crud that came out of the jets. Now our tub is all sparkly and clean! 😊" —Rebecca J Huges

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    19. A faux granite DIY paint kit to help you upgrade your counters — instead of spending a fortune to replace them.

    A freshly painted countertop
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I found out about this kit a few weeks ago. I redid my mother's countertops first and was so pleased with the results, I bought a second kit and did mine this weekend. I am not a crafty person, so if I can do it, anyone can. Just be sure you follow the step-by-step instructions on the included DVD. They came out great!" —Sarah W. Fallon

    Get it from Amazon for $89.95+ (available in five colors).

    20. A miraculous little bottle of Quick N Brite Fireplace Cleaner designed to clean away soot, smoke, creosote, and ash from nearly any fireplace — brick, stone, tile, rock. You name it!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Unbelievable! My daughter just moved into her first home. She thought she would have to paint her brick fireplace because of the heavy soot stains that had been there for years. We applied the product twice and put in a whole lot of elbow grease, but what a difference! It’s a messy process, but well worth the time and energy." —MM

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    21. A set of invisible bookshelves so you can neatly store your entire literary collection without any bulky furniture — look ma, no hands!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These invisible bookshelves are great, they worked perfectly for us. They are very sturdy and hold a lot of books, I did not overload my shelves for visual reasons, but they could have held more books. I would highly recommend these shelves, they are a unique focal point in a room." —Christin Tobey

    Get a three- or four-pack from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in three options).

    22. A privacy adding "leaded-glass" film that'll make your windows and glass doors look super expensive while giving you the peace of mind of knowing no one can see into your home.

    Amazon

    Window film is available in 17.5'' x 78.7'', 17.5'' x157.4, 23.6'' x 118.1'', 35.4'' x 78.7'', 35.4'' x 157.4" sizes and can be trimmed or combined to fit any size window glass.

    Promising review: "This film was just what I needed. It provides enough privacy without blocking light. I didn’t have any problems with it not sticking to the window. You just have to make sure the windows are very clean and remember to peel off the backing and spray lots of water before sticking it on the glass!!! I used an old credit card as a squeegee to get rid of the air bubbles. The application was very easy. I highly recommend this product!!!" —Selenable

    Get it from Amazon for $9.97+ (available in five sizes).

    23. A screen-cleaning kit, because the amount of filth hanging out on your TV, phone, and computer screens is really out of control — really, really out of control.

    A customer review photo showing their TV screen before and after cleaning it
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm a grad student. I live on my laptop. I work on my laptop. I eat over my laptop. I quickly try to do my makeup and hair over my laptop. I hurriedly attempt to edit thesis chapters on grimy public transit with my laptop. As a result of all this, my laptop is an unholy crud-encrusted atrocity by the end of the week. I will not even describe its supreme grodiness here lest you, dear reader, grow too disgusted to continue reading this needlessly wordy review I'm typing up to postpone the further editing of said thesis. It's pretty bad. In any event, this stuff is a godsend. I've tried other products to make my laptop look vaguely respectable, but they tend to leave streaks, fail to despeckle the harder specks from my screen, and make little headway with regards to the greasy blotches so many not-well-thought-out late fast-food runs have left on my keys. This product, though, gets my computer clean and pleasant looking to the point where I am only slightly embarrassed to haul it around as though it was some extension of my person. I use it on pretty much all of my devices now, and even though I'm not the sort of person to particularly care about the 'naturalness' of a cleaning product, I'm glad to have something on hand that isn't scented and probably won't destroy things I spill it on." —Leah Davydov

    Get the kit (which includes a microfiber cleaning cloth and cleaning solution) from Amazon for $19.97.

    24. A restorative Howard Products Wood Polish & Conditioner that uses beeswax to help give luster to any wood surface — floors, tables, legs...whatever!

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "This product is worth every penny and goes a very long way. We had tired, oak floors that haven’t been refinished in over 50 years. They were dried out and washed out. This product took away decades in an hour with a few rags and a lot of elbow grease. One word of caution, floors are very slippery for a few days after. Be very careful walking around. Bonus, it smells amazing. It has a natural orange peel smell that is fresh and clean and not at all harsh or chemical. Highly, highly recommend." —GMD

    Get it from Amazon for $8.98.

    25. A six-piece pantry organization set that's not only great for your fridge but your cupboard or any space really.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love these things so much. I just got my first apartment with my boyfriend and it looked so messy in our little fridge and now it looks really appealing and everything is easy to get to. The quality of them is so good, I’m honestly impressed they’re very sturdy and the egg holder is so cute and holds 14 eggs!" —Faith Sperry

    Get the set from Amazon for $20.39.

    26. A pair of stain-resistant, super-comfy microfiber sheets that'll freshen up your bed and have you sleeping in the lap of luxury.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are by far the best sheets I have ever bought! Super soft and cozy! Not really thick or crisp, which some people like. I am more than pleased and will buy another set of us, and for my son." —Mary

    Get the four-piece set from Amazon for $35.97+ (available in sizes twin-California king and in 42 colors).

    27. A set of sturdy wood coasters so you can create a mini coaster library — they're designed to look like classic written works of art but with some very punny edits to the titles.

    The set of coasters that looks like books but with titles like "Drinkula" and "Gone with the Wine"

    Promising review: "Wow, it is not very often you buy something and think you got a steal. Well, that's the case here. These coasters are gorgeous and would be the perfect gift for a bookish friend. I wish I had gotten more than four they are so cute. They also stand on their own which can be nice if you want to put two tiny book ends with them for extra cuteness. Seriously lovely! So happy I made this purchase." —Marlo

    Get a set of two from Oliver Stuff on Amazon Handmade for $20+ (available in sets of two to ten).

    28. A set of glamorous room-darkening velvet curtains that'll give your room some elegant color — and help in your quest to sleep in a little later.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Purchased these for my studio, which is in an old mill. I wanted them for their insulating properties more than to block out the light because my studio loses a lot of heat at night due to its enormous windows. The curtains/drapes work great for both — I am especially pleased with how well they help keep the space from losing heat! Before having the curtains the space would lose about 8 degrees in temperature overnight (which in the winter is a significant amount, especially in the northeast). Now, with the curtains, the space no longer loses heat overnight! It is now so nice to go into my studio in the morning and find it still toasty warm!" —Noname

    Get them from Amazon for $32.99+ a panel (available in four sizes and eight colors).

    29. A set of Alexa and Google Home voice-controlled LED Lights that are easily applied under and above your cabinets and that can shine in up to 16 million color options. MILLION.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We love our new strip lights so much that I decided to buy a second set. The first one was installed above the kitchen cabinets where we placed some artwork and vases. The second set was placed under the kitchen island top. Grandkids love speaking to Alexa to change the colors of the lights. Set up was extremely easy and it works with the Alexa app." —junin07

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in two sizing options).

    30. A peel-and-stick subway tile backsplash to give your kitchen (or bathroom) an upgrade that doesn't require any actual tiling work.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have planned to install a backsplash in our kitchen for a long time now but I hate tiling and grouting. I did a ton of research on vinyl peel and stick tile and knew it would be the best product for me. No mess, quick install, don't have to seal any grout, and overall a simple process. I watched a lot of install videos and purchased a cutting mat, a good box cutter, and a straight edge. The most tedious part is overlapping the grout lines, you do have to be a perfectionist and patient for this part or the tiles will look off. I knew I would be caulking around all the edges so I didn't focus on making the edge tiles straight because if they were uneven at the bottom they would be covered by caulk but you have to keep them as level as possible. Overall the project took about half a day and I do get compliments on it." —xliu

    Get a 10-pack of 12x12 panels from Amazon for $33.99+ (available in eight colors).

    31. Or go with a little more color with a peel-and-stick faux-gel tile backsplash that's mold-, heat-, and moisture-resistant.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "We did a kitchen facelift this summer, repainting and making everything look fresh. We were looking at The Home Depot version of these, which are more than double the price. We decided to go for these instead and they are amazing!! I put them up myself in about two hours. I did buy the adhesive spray just in case but it wasn’t needed, even for the few I had to peel off and re-stick to center correctly. These aren’t too difficult to apply but definitely require patience. It is 100% worth the buy for a DIY affordable update!" —Hope Consilvio

    Get a 10-pack from Amazon for $29.97.

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

    amazon.com

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $4.98.

    33. A discreet and simple wooden stove cover to give yourself a little more counter space — and maybe even just to cover up the messy stovetop you don't want to clean up right now.

    34. A clutter-removing shower curtain with nine pockets in three sizes to fit everything you'd need during shower time.

    The mesh pocket shower curtain hanging around a claw foot tub
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I LOVE this shower curtain. I have been buying this curtain for the past six years. If you have a shower that doesn’t have a lot of ledge room for all your 'stuff,' this shower curtain will be your best friend. You can fit so many things inside the pockets! I honestly only use like four or five of the pockets. You can also use this as a liner and have another more decorative shower curtain on the outside but I personally use it as a shower curtain. I usually change it every six months because it does start getting a little soap scummy on the bottom. The best shower curtain/liner money can buy!" —DAtkins

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    35. 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.

    amazon.com

    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 a little bit of elbow grease! You can see the difference." —Katherine Cheng

    The shell-shaped accent chair next to the vanity
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I needed an accent chair for my home office that I could read or use my laptop when I didn’t want to be at my desk. Not only does it look great in my office but it’s comfortable too. The color is true to what it looks like online and it’s very easy to put together. This is chair is what my office was missing!" —Chris S.

    38. A mid-century light fixture — it's an easy way to upgrade your home without breaking the bank (while still making it look like you did).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was very skeptical when I bought this. I thought I would end up returning it, but it looks great. It actually looks very nice. I ended up using LED 'Edison-style' bulbs instead of the traditional filament bulbs because I was worried about the heat emission (and energy consumption) of the latter. I think it looks great!" —Lou

    Get this mid-century-modern chandelier from Amazon for $89.99+ (available in five finishes).

    39. And speaking of lights, an easy-to-install outlet cover plate designed with LED lights so that it can double as a nightlight.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These go on in about 30 seconds. They are awesome. I did not shut off the power to my outlets, but I have experience getting shocked doing residential electrical work, so I've learned my lessons about what not to touch. Even a true beginner would be able to install these without issue. Their tolerance for low light is on the sensitive side, so they end up on more than off but the downward cast light is not bothersome. I was put off by the price at first but bought a two-pack to try out — ended up going back for 10 more." —Oliver North

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $42.48 (also available for light switches).

    40. A roll of vinyl wrap film — a temporary solution that'll help you upgrade your counters and tabletops for a long time but won't cost a small fortune.

    Promising review: "Easy to work with and looks amazing. Very happy with the product and my project. I put a thin coat of polyutherane, but I don't think it needs it since the paper seems very sturdy and the gloss finish is nice. I have already ordered two more rolls to finish my vanity and cover my drawers." —Johanna Calderon

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I own a cleaning business and have spent a small fortune on the name brand. I clean everything from condo rentals to long term lease/residential rentals and I have had to clean unimaginable NASTY, I mean 'pics or it didn't happen' kind of nasty and these cut right through it. These work just as well as the name brand, if not better, and they seem to last a little longer!" —Keisha Marie

    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

    Promising review: "This cleaner deserves 6 stars. I bought this to clean the showerhead and shower doors. The delivery guy was here about 10 minutes ago and I'm done cleaning the shower and taking pictures. I've used this before and it is amazing. You don't even have to scrub. Just apply to the whole surface and rinse." —Gertrude

    Promising review: "Let me say this — there is nothing out there that can clean your electric cook top surface better than this! PERIOD! If you have an electric stove, please do yourself a favor and just buy this. I use a regular paper towel to do the cleaning and no matter how dirty, messy, stained, or greased the stove top gets, this will make it BRAND-NEW every single time!" —ItsJustBlah

    Each hanger holds 12 garments.

    Promising review: "I am getting these to replace the plastic version I've had for decades. The plastic one are starting to break, so, I wanted metal ones. These are a great replacement! I like how the place for the individual hangers is open, not a small hole. This makes it easier to add items when putting away the laundry. I can leave it hanging down and just put the clothes hanger over the hook. They seem sturdy enough to hold the weight of my clothing, including some denim skirts." —N.K. Bird

    "I would buy enough of these to surround every wall in my house if I could. Just so dang useful and good-looking. I love the dark gray color. So durable, you can sit on them to tie your shoes or stand on them to fix the smoke detector. My cats are scratching one to hell but I’ll just turn it around when the time comes." —Kass

    Promising review: "Absolutely LOVE this liquid stainless-steel paint! I had a black textured fridge, so I was nervous about how it would look, but it turned out great! Very easy to use. I removed the door handles (and primed them, as recommended, before painting), removed the bottom grill and snapped off the water/ice dispenser (I did not paint them). Cleaned the fridge and started rolling on the paint, then used the 11-inch foam tool to make it pretty! I did five coats (but really could have stopped at three). Then did three coats of the topcoat. I really did not notice a difference between one and three coats of the topcoat. I did all sides and the top of the fridge and still have enough left over for my double oven. Everyone has been impressed!" —robert

    48. A super-strong scum and grime remover that'll eat away at the years of filth you've never been able to scrub away — in fact, this stuff won't even make you scrub that much to get everything sparkling clean.

    Promising review: "Sharing our nasty before picture so you can really see the difference! Our tub/shower has a grippy bottom, and scum and dirt cakes on there so easily. The only way I've been able to get it off before was literally scraping it inch by inch, I've spent hours and all it ever got was somewhat clean — never enough for me to want to take a real bath in it. This stuff is expensive but with the good reviews, I decided to try it. it works amazingly!! I sprayed it on (it came with a great spray nozzle and a lid) and left it for about 15–20 minutes. Then I took a brush with hard plastic bristles (I believe a soft brush would have even worked) and with less than 20 minutes of scrubbing the entire tub and walls, it was cleaner than when we moved in. The grime and scum almost, like, melted off. It smells pleasant, it's not crazy strong smelling but in an enclosed space I still felt the need to wear a mask while cleaning. The before picture is how the tub has looked forever and normally looks if cleaned with any cleaner/brush. The white spot towards the left with the brush next to it is where I tried a little area first. The second picture is after 20 minutes of work and I'm definitely taking a bath instead of a shower tonight!" —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "This stuff is a miracle. My husband and I just bought a house and there is very hard water. It looked like the previous owners never tried to get the hard water off the shower doors and walls. I tried vinegar and Dawn first — it didn't even scratch the surface. I tried Scrubbing Bubbles next and it was the same. I was feeling so defeated. I did some research and bought Bar Keepers Friend. With a grade 0000 steel wool piece, it took me about two hours to clean a quarter of the window in my shower. My arm also felt like it was going to fall off. I was determined, so I researched more. Then, I found this stuff. I was so anxious that I cracked it open minutes after receiving it in the mail. I applied it to my grade 0000 steel wool and started scrubbing away. BINGO! It took me about 15 minutes to clean the same size section as I did with the Bar Keepers Friend. I'm not gonna lie, this stuff needs some elbow grease but it definitely works. It took off what seems like years of hard water stains. It does have a smell to it but it's not super harsh and totally able to withstand. This is going on my 'always available in my house' list! I love this stuff!" —Tyrene A. Gapol

    Promising review: "It arrived quickly and in perfect condition. There is a layer of protective plastic film over the metal to keep it from getting scratched or damaged. It comes with matching screws. I pre-drilled the holes to make the installation easier. Easy upgrade project that can make your door more beautiful or is great for hiding damage." —kmr

    Promising review: "Are you embarrassed for friends, relatives, and your mother-in-law to see your kitchen sink? Is your sink situation affecting your well-being? If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions, you may be in luck. Hope's Perfect Sink provides relief to those afflicted with sink stain shame. I spent about 10 minutes cleaning and polishing (note that it does take some elbow grease) and I now have a sink that I can be proud of. As a matter of fact, I find excuses to walk past my sink several times a day just to admire the shine. Even if my wife and kids roll their eyes whenever I talk about my sink polishing adventures, I think they secretly love it too. If your sink is in need of some love, just shell out the bucks and buy a bottle of this stuff. You won't regret it." —Rick B
