    3. A foaming garbage disposal cleaner you simply throw in your sink (the whole packet!), turn on the water, and watch fizz up as it does the tough work below on all the gunk that OTHER PEOPLE have let build up in your disposal.

    Promising review: "Personally it’s one of my favorite cleaners. It’s easy to use and you can actually see it working. I have a double sink so the foam does come out on both sides but I will definitely buy again and again." —Ari

    4. leave-in conditioner made for kids (and grownups) with curly hair and tender heads gives you some picturesque results thanks to its hydrating and detangling formula of vitamin B5, jojoba oil, keratin, and more.

    Promising review: "My granddaughters have long curly hair, and this is the first product that actually worked at getting the tangles out! Their hair was soft and no tears were shed while combing through… which to me is most important! The smell is nice, not overwhelming… over all this is just a great product and I will definitely be buying again!" —Danielle Bustamante

    Get it from Amazon for $8.25.

    5. Dishwasher-cleaning tablets because YES! you scored a place with one! But it also seems ancient and barely works. Run one of these through it for a transformative cleaning experience.

    Promising review: "My KitchenAid dishwasher recommended use of this dishwasher cleaner by brand. It works very well. Gets rid of odors and fights mineral buildup. Will buy again." —Kindle Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $8.99.

    6. A no-scrub weekly shower cleaner you can simply just spray on after you shower, wait 8–12 hours while it tackles mold and mildew stains, soap scum, and just about any gross grime without YOU having to scrub. Talk about practical to the max. 

    Before: a dirty shower floor; after: the clean shower floor

    Promising review: "This stuff REALLY works! I sprayed on waited over night washed down the tub and it was all gone! I have purchased lots of products over the years for cleaning the bathroom. Some worked a little or not at all. I could hardly believe my eyes. Will buy again. Highly Recommend. 5 stars forwards and backwards." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $17.97.

    7. Teeth whitening pens that'll easily apply and let sit a minute or two to dry. Buh-bye annoying strips and coffee stains.

    You can use each pen ~20 times and should expect your teeth to lighten four to eight shades.

    Promising review: "I started using this product less than two weeks ago and can already tell a difference. A friend even commented on a picture of mine asking what app I used to make my teeth appear whiter!😆 I even missed a few days of use when we were traveling. Easy to use and results are noticeable within a short period of time! Will buy this again when I need more! Great price and great product!!" —Andrea6117

    Promising review: "Will definitely buy again. My Keurig was slow and the coffee just wasn't great anymore. Popped in one of these cleaner cups and followed with two rinse cups, and I have a full cup again!" —busymom2355

    Promising review: "First time buying this and didn't know what to expect but I'm most definitely buying it again. My skin has never felt better and I have the most sensitive skin and I've had no issues at all." —Melissa

    Get it from Amazon for $12.50

    10. An exfoliating scrub mitt helps you part with excess dead skin and particles while you use it a couple of times a month (it's that good so you don't have to use it often!). Reviewers find it super helpful for removing self-tanner, addressing ingrown hairs, and increasing circulation.

    Promising review: "It was gross seeing all of the dead skin cells that it got off, but my skin feels so much softer after using it for the first time! I will definitely buy again!" —Sandra Eineke

    11. Bio-Oil can lighten scars, pregnancy stretch marks, and other spots. But! Lots of reviewers say it does wonders for dry, super-sensitive rosacea breakouts, just to name a few surprising uses.

    OK, so I've never used my bottle of Bio-Oil to specifically treat my rosacea. Yet, I've used it to moisturize my skin in the dead of winter or target super dry elbows and knees. This is gonna be your new fave multi-purpose skincare product. (Psst, a lil' goes a long way.)

    Promising review: "I just love the smell of the oil. I mostly buy it because of the smell. I also have a scar from a cyst removal about 6 years ago that has gotten so much smaller after using this oil on it. Would buy again" —joey

    Get it from Amazon for $3.57+ (available in three sizes and multipack options).

    12. E.l.f.'s Poreless Putty Primer, a lightweight base primer with TONS of amazing reviews because it helps to reduce the appearance of pores and make your makeup apply like buttah.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.87.

    15. Wood polish and conditioner that'll totally revamp those worn-out wooden cabinets you have to live with, along with curbside finds and hand-me-down furniture that's seen better days but will have to make do 'til you move to a bigger place. Putting in a bit of elbow grease will leave you with some dramatic before and after pics.

    Enhances the natural beauty and depth of grain on finished *and* unfinished wood. For use on antiques, dining tables, kitchen cabinets, wood doors and trim, etc.

    Promising review: "Love this stuff!!! Just wish it had come in a bigger size for the price. Used it to polish an old antique bedroom set from my parents. The difference is like night and day! Wish I had taken pictures. I could practically hear the bureaus say 'AHHH.' I also used it to condition the top of a kitchen cart that was very dry. Will definitely buy again!!!!" —K. L. Satagaj

    Get it from Amazon for $8.74.

    16. L’Oréal Paris Elvive 8 Second Wonder Water to give hair a major dose of moisture in — like the name suggests — a mere eight seconds!

    Promising review: "Bought this not expecting that it would work. I've been using products in and on my hair for years, both expensive and inexpensive. This is the best I've used, bar none! It smooths and takes away the tightness of the curls. Will buy it again and again!" —Judith Cohen

    Get it from Amazon for $8.85.

    17. A mold and mildew removal gel for turning back time on your shower surround in a mere six hours. (Can't wait for Cher to drop that remix.) 

    Promising review: "This was my last attempt at trying to clean the caulk before completely recaulking the tub and it worked! My shower looks brand-new. Will be buying again." —Nikki

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    18. A reusable roller dog hair remover that'll have you toss your old sticky roller after you see how much fur this reusable one (it has a sturdy brush system) picks up off your beloved couch that both you and your dog basically live on.

    Promising review: "This product works really well!! Works much better than other products I've used. We have a microfiber couch and two dogs so it tends to get full of hair. This cleans up the hair really fast. Would buy again." —Kristina Poli

    Get it from Amazon for $28.95

    19. A set of affordable wireless Bluetooth earbuds in case you still can't quite bring yourself to pay THAT much for a set of AirPod. Plus! They're *legit* waterproof so you could even rock out with them in the shower if that's a thing you'd like to do. 

    These come with a wireless charging case that provides up to 14 hours of charge (with the earbuds able to play for four-plus hours with each full charge). And it comes with several different size silicone parts so you can get the perfect fit for your ear shape. 

    Promising review: "Best decision! These are the greatest headphones ever! I saw them on TikTok months ago and added them to my wishlist. I got a new phone that doesn't have the headphone port so I decided it was time to finally buy them. They are amazing and I probably won't ever take them out of my ears! 😂" —Katlyn D Arnold

    Get it from Amazon $22.09+ (clip the "15% off coupon" on the product page for this price; available in five colors).

    20. A bottle of nontoxic Folex Carpet Spot Remover can make all sorts of horrific stains disappear quickly. *And* there's no rinsing or vacuuming involved. 

    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: "When we moved into our home, someone had carelessly let WD-40 drip out of door hinges into the light colored carpet leaving black stains. Nothing, including Resolve, worked on removing the stains but this did. I soaked the area with the cleaner, blotted several times then used a toothbrush to further scrub the spots and they're gone. Highly recommend, I'd definitely buy again!!! Thanks for saving our carpet!!!" —Judy Wilson

    Get it from Amazon for $11.97+.

    21. Corsx Acne Pimple Master Patches are made to attack and help flatten out painful blemishes by sucking out the gunk without irritating your skin around the blemish like drying treatments.

    Promising review: "I've tried many different brands of pimple patches, and these rank near the top for me. They adhere better than most, and I like the fact that there are varying sizes in the pack. Most importantly, they do what they're supposed to do in reducing/eliminating blemishes. The price is better than most, too. I'll be buying these again." —Amy G.
