1. SoapSox (aka a toy that'll hold a bar of soap and act as a loofah) to help get your kid pumped for bath time — maybe — and keep them from speeding through a bar of soap because it's starting to get a little ridiculous.
2. An EZPZ Happy Mat that'll save you several post-dinner kitchen cleanups and even make going out to eat with the fam totally bearable because this thing does NOT budge!
3. A timed safety shut-off plug in case your teenager has developed quite the reputation around the household for forgetting to unplug their flat iron. At the least you'll shave a few pennies off the electric bill and at the most you'll prevent a house fire.
4. And a hot hair tools holster made of heat-resistant silicone that'll stick on flat surfaces as a lil' extra insurance.
5. A car trash can you can hook to your passenger head rest and tell the kids it's a trash-eating monster that'll come after them if they throw trash on the floor of a car. 'Tis a mere suggestion!
6. A red wine stain remover that'll also take juice stains to task because even sippy cups aren't a sure thing!
7. An ~all-natural~ stain remover – it'll work *so* well on that shirt you lent your kid that they then spilled pizza allllll over. Stains be gone!
8. Tempered glass phone screen protectors you can install yourself (I swear!) for chump change in comparison to getting a pro to do it in store. So when your kid insists on playing that game at the restaurant dinner table, you'll at least feel a tad safer about it.
9. A waterproof case that'll withstand all sorts of extreme behavior, like toppling off a ski lift, falling into a white water rapid, or swiping on dating apps while on the toilet.
10. Magic Erasers to basically undo most any and every stain or mishap around the house.
