    Promising review: "We’ve been using these for more than a year, and we like them a lot! Last time I bought soap nuts, I ordered a different brand, because they were cheaper, and I figured they must all be the same thing. Not! There were no whole nuts, just small pieces, and they smelled nasty! Anyway, we finished those off, and we are now back to Eco Nuts; I find it easy to slip the nuts in the cloth bag, and they have a faint, sweet pleasant smell. They last a long time. The smaller boxes lasted us about six months each time. It is a space-saver, and not messy. Before we started getting these, I had a jumbo bottle of ecologically safe laundry detergent, and it leaked all over the top of my fridge! (Yuck!) I think using these saves us money, and they are biodegradable!" β€”Bookfresser

    Get a 20.5 oz box (good for 360 loads) from Amazon for $29.70. Though if you want less of a commitment, there are smaller boxes for lower prices.

    2. A CreaClip Set to help you finally pull off the at-home trim that you've been scared to try up until now or have seriously messed up in the past. Its built-in level will help create an even chop!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I can't say enough good things about this product. I can't wait to tell people what I use on my hair. I hate going to salons. I think I'm one of the few people that has never left a salon feeling like I look better than before I arrived. It doesn't matter how much I've spent on the visit either. This product has been a lifesaver. I just look up YouTube videos and follow the instructions. I just have myself a layered A-line bob, and it's one of the best cuts I've ever had. It seems like this product would be too good to be true, but if you're patient, it's super easy to use." β€”Michelle H

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99.

    3. Wondercide Spray that'll serve as a naturally derived alternative to your pet's monthly treatments because fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes are horrible! Your pet doesn't need to speak human words to tell you that!

    Promising review: "We never had problems with ticks or fleas while living in the city, but six months ago we moved to the country. Our two dogs (Doberman and small pitbull mix) run around outside and sometimes in the woods on our property. We started finding ticks on them. The vet recommended $50+ collars 'that most other owners buy for their dogs.' We scoffed at the expense for two dogs. I had remembered seeing this product on Shark Tank and had saved it on my lists here. Started using it on our dogs three months ago, Doberman has had not one tick and the pitbull had one, on the back of his ear, which we found super quick. This has been a great natural product to use out here. And there are tons of ticks. I think I'm going to start using it for myself per reading other reviews." β€”KitKat

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in four sizes and scents).

    4. A Phonesoap to kill up to 99.99% of bacteria with UV light on that tiny computer you clutch onto like your life depends on it every dang minute of the day (and insist on taking to the bathroom with you). Also we're *all* cleaning our stuff more often these days.

    It'll also work on other things you can fit inside, like eyeglasses!

    Promising review: "What a perfect gadget for getting your phone clean. After touching who knows what while commuting to work, and it being that time of year everyone around you gets sick, this comes in handy. After the first use it looked great, and then I wiped it down with the sponge that came with it. I feel so much better about using my phone now." β€”Crystal Gardner

    Get it from Amazon for $79.95.

    5. Better Life Natural All-Purpose Cleaner (you could spray in your mouth if you wanted?!) that'll be safe to use around kids and pets or anyone who's super sensitive to smells.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I was looking for a safe natural product that didn't have any ingredients requiring a hazardous waste disposal label. A lot of so-called 'natural' cleaners have ingredients that need an EPA use-and-disposal label. This doesn't.

    It is strong enough to really go through grease and grime like a clear organic tornado. I haven't found anything that can't be cleaned with it yet. Plus it's odor-free. I feel comfortable spraying it in places where pets, children or myself in bare feet might absorb it by stepping in the residue. It's hard to get excited over cleaning spray but this deserves a level of excitement in my home." β€”Mark O.

    Get two bottles from Amazon for $11.34.

    6. Bottle Bright cleaning tablets to revive the look (and taste!) of the stainless-steel thermos you use every dang day (whether you're WFH or not) but aren't so great at washing like you should.

    amazon.com

    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 a tablet in, 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!" β€”BranchingOut

    Get 12 tablets from Amazon for $8.

    7. A Squatty Potty which, if you don't already know what it does, helps position your body in a way that'll feel more natural for your colon and, therefore, make going no. 2 easier. (More or less.)

    Amazon

    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 β€” 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 ten 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. 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." β€”DJ_Malsidious

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99. Not into the white plastic look? Check out a ghost acrylic version.

    8. A Q-flex acupressure tool ready to step in for your normal massage therapist. After all, no matter how many times you try to convince your puppy to walk across your back, it's just cute instead of providing some relief.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Was hoping this would take my job of massaging my wife's back when she gets these little gravel-like knots in her muscles. It did! Saw it on Shark Tank. She loves it! The padded handle is great." β€”rrr

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    9. Scrub Daddy sponges who, if you're a frequent BuzzFeed Shopping reader, you'll recognize as the hardest lil' worker in anyone's kitchen. Trust me, this smiley face is worth the hype 10x over!

    Scrub Daddy

    Promising review: "I used to save these little gems for 'special projects' (what projects, I don't know because I ended up not ever using them!). Then one day I decided 'what the heck, just use one in the sink for dishes, you can always buy more.' Lo and behold, I LOVE them! They remove food off of dishes more easily than a sponge and I just throw them in the top rack of the dishwasher and they come out spotless! They never smell and always rinse out nicely in between washings. These little gems even take off hard water build up from my shower doors! (I also use regular cleaners with them to do the trick.). I love these so much I bought a bunch and used them as stocking stuffers last Xmas! Everyone loves them!" β€”DivaGranny

    Get three from Amazon for $9.99.

    10. Vibes earplugs to help protect your hearing from incredibly loud noise by blocking out the decibels, but not the music! (I wore my pair at an arm hair-shaking EDM show and can report back that they work SO well.)

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love these!!! I have suffered from vertigo for the last five years and it is stirred up when I am exposed to loud sounds, but I don't let that stop me from doing what I love. When we decided to attend a three-day electronic music festival last year, I knew I was going to need earplugs. However those foam plugs you see everywhere, block out all sound and make you feel like you are in a tunnel, which would be terrible when you paid a lot of money to hear music. I purchased these and could not have been happier. They block out the sound at really high decibels, but still allow sound to go through. I could still hear the music and did not set my vertigo spinning. I would recommend these to anyone. I also wear them at frequent sporting events, which are also loud." β€”Julie B.

    Get them from Amazon for $23.98.

    11. A Beard King trimmings catcher that'll make cleaning the bathroom sink SO much easier if you can convince your currently bearded bae to actually use it.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My girlfriend bought this for me as a present. At first I was skeptical to use, but once I got my hands out it there was no going back. I use my Beard Bib anywhere two to four times a week and cannot live without it. Not only does this serve a big purpose in my trimming routine but now I no longer have to argue with my girlfriend about all the mess that I USED to create. Also, we ordered a beard oil recently and reached out to customer support about the different scents they offer, they were super helpful! Overall it has been an awesome experience and they’ve truly made me feel like a King!" β€”Timur

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    12. A tube of Nerd Wax because think of all the time you could put toward saving the world by *not* having to scoot your glasses up the bridge of your name a million times a day.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "We saw this on Shark Tank, and thought we'd give it a shot. The Chapstick-sized tube is perfect for travel. Walking on a beach with sunglasses on, sweat makes them slide down. Just a couple of dabs of this Nerdwax keeps them in place. It also worked well keeping glasses up during snow blowing in a recent blizzard. So while I'd rather use it walking on a beach, it did the job when I was shoveling snow as well. Is it costly? Yes. But does it work? Yes!" β€”Ernest DeFelice

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in one- or four-packs).

    13. A Stasher reusable silicone bag that's actually *airtight*, so you won't want to throw it away after a few uses like so many you've tried before. (You can even throw it in the dishwasher and microwave β€” the dream!)

    Amazon

    FYI, it's self-sealing and non-plastic. It's also free of BPA, PVC, and latex.

    Promising review: "I've tried a LOT of reusable bags as there are a lot of options out there all using a variety of materials. The fabric ones just get gross over time. The vinyl ones are hard to clean and aren't usually dishwasher-safe. There are other silicone ones that need a separate rod to close them that you can easily lose. This one is the most simple and easy to use. No separate pieces to lose. Can withstand any temperature/microwave/dishwasher/whatever. And if they get gunky they are very easy to clean and I trust that they aren't hiding gross crumbs in any of the crevices. My only complaint is the cost β€” they are the most expensive and I wish they offered a bulk discount. If they were cheaper I would use them for EVERYTHING (open cheese in cheese drawer, all snacks on the go, etc)." β€”Megan A.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in several sizes and colors).

    14. Safe grabs silicone mats for putting a safe barrier between hot things and important stuff, like your hands, in so many situations.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Okay, so I am a sucker for innovations that I see on Shark Tank so bought this without giving it much thought. When it arrived I thought I had probably made a mistake, but turns out I use them all the time. I keep one in the microwave, which makes clean-up easier but also allows me to use it as a potholder. I keep the other in a drawer and use it as a trivet to protect my counters and table. Stores easily, has lots of uses, cleans in a flash. Pretty cool." β€”Kathy, Avid Reader

    Get a pack of two Amazon for $27.95 (available in six colors).

    15. The Spatty and Spatty Daddy spatulas – they're flexible enough to help you get the dregs of that luxury conditioner out of the container you got as a free sample at Sephora and have sworn by ever since.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "The face wash I use isn't the most economical, but nothing else works better for my skin. I got this to help get the remaining lotion out of the bottles that I was too cheap to throw out (I was running out of space in my shower...). This really gets it all out! Also used it with my other toiletries in my shower, and now I have so much room for activities! Read the dimension before you purchase; I thought I was getting these sleek spatulas, but you could hurt someone with the Spatty Daddy if you tried (not saying you should do that). Regardless of size, these work great!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $11.70+ (available in two colors).

    16. A Michel Mercier Detangler brush to make quick, gentle work of your wet or dry hair thanks to a total of freaking 428 bristles in 32 different heights.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This detangled my hair in seconds. I have very tangled hair but this only takes about two to three strokes and that side/knot is out!!! You finish your hair in minutes. Very extremely knotty hair will take about seven to 15 minutes, but if you have only a knot and other little knots, it only takes about two to five minutes!" —❀️ Naomi ❀️

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available for fine, normal, or thick hair).

    17. A HoodiePillow that'll give you the best of both worlds when it comes to comfort and privacy on your next flight or bus ride because you don't want to start off that trip of a lifetime with neck cramps or a talkative neighbor that kept you from napping on a red eye.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Comfortable neck pillow. Great for air travel, the hoodie is very easy to adjust over your face, it helps me block out the unwanted light and overall sights on the plane! I also use when riding as a passenger in a car to get in a quick nap. The memory foam is quite comfortable." β€”TK

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95 (available in six colors).

    18. A Smart Cart rolling bag for helping you tote all sorts of groceries in its *water-resistant* structure and then you can fold it down once you're done for easy storage in your car's trunk.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I'm a teacher, and every time I leave home it looks like I've packed for a vacation. This bag is bigger than it looks, which enables me to steal more things from home for my classroom. The extendable handle and rolling wheels mean that I can save my back and shoulder from the weight of at least two bags, plus I have a free hand in which to carry my Harry Potter mug of chai. There's also a handy little pocket on front for my classroom door key and dollar bills for the vending machine." β€”A. Shah

    Get it from Amazon for $34.09+ (available in several colors and patterns).

    19. A Frywall that'll fit around your pan and contain popping oil or spillover while you work on the house special. Nothing ruins an edible masterpiece like hot grease landing on your hand.

    BTW, it's BPA-free, FDA-compliant, heat-resistant up to 450Β°F, and dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "I was frying chicken with lard (yes, I use lard! My chicken is NOT health food.) and I put too much in the frying pan. A few minutes after putting the chicken in, the lard began to bubble up and if I hadn't had the Frywall in place, it would have spilled all over my stove. The Frywall creates a seal around my frying pan, stopping spillovers. Splatters don't escape, it's easy to work around it (turning my chicken over), and when I'm done, I just throw it in the dishwasher. If you do any frying at all, you want the Frywall. Helpful" β€”Carl G Brown

    Get it from Amazon for $21.95 (available in three colors).

    20. InstaFire, an eco-friendly fire starter with four fires in a pouch so you'll be set even if you don't remember how to build a campfire from back in your Girl Scout days. (OK, I could if I had to.) This'll also seriously come in handy if 2020 all of a sudden has you interested in camping as a vacay option.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This stuff is awesome!!! We used only one pack for our campfire and it kept burning for a long while β€” well after the logs caught. There was no oily, smelly chemicals or toxic smoke like some fire starters that are paraffin based. This burned clean so we had a nice relaxing fire to enjoy β€” no poking or prodding necessary to get the fire going." β€”Mooselady

    Get it from Amazon for $7.43+ (available in a variety of pack sizes).

    21. An Enso Ring silicone wedding band to wear while you're out and about doing stuff where you don't wanna wear your *real* band (like the playing at the beach, hiking, woodworking, etc.)

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Very practical ring. I can wear this ring without it getting in the way or even really noticing it. I wear it in the shower, doing dishes, whatever. I got the white one and so far (approx. 1 month use) no discoloration, which I was worried about. I have an allergy to metal so this was a very good non-traditional solution for my wedding ring. (I still have my nice diamond ring to wear out when I dress up). I am usually a 4.75 or 5 ring size; I bought a size 4 and it did stretch slightly as other reviewers mentioned so now it fits like a glove. I was worried that it would feel too tight at first and it would freak me out if I couldn't get it off or it would cut off circulation. None of this happened. It was totally comfortable from day one. Very happy! Definitely recommend!" β€”WWoman6814

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in sizes 4–9 and 14 colors).

    22. A T Thompson T sweat-proof undershirt that'll cost ya' thanks to fancy features like built-in sweat-absorbing pads. But you know what else costs ya'? Pit stains.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I didn't know these even existed until seeing them on an episode of Shark Tank. I gave them a try and wow! No more sweat spots. I have hyperhidrosis and sweat a lot, mostly in my armpits and hands. I would always sweat through my shirts, even with wearing an undershirt. With this shirt, I have yet to see any sweat spots. It fits well as an undershirt." β€”RoBroKnos

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in sizes XS–3XL and four colors).

    23. ReadeREST magnetic glasses holders – they can clip onto any of your shirts without leaving behind any damage, lest you forget another pair of reading glasses on a table. Somewhere....

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I can't tell you how many reading glasses I've killed in the past few years, largely from jettisoning them from my breast pocket or hooking them awkwardly in my shirt collar. These clips are amazing. They're discreet enough that I don't look like a goon wearing one on my shirt all day, and when I hang my glasses from them I can tie my shoes without spilling them lens-first on the ground. What else can a fellow ask for?" β€”Phil Selman

    Get two sets from Amazon for $18.99.

    24. Grease Monkey cleaning wipes for those times when you're working on your bike, wiping off your hands while you admire a job well done, and then realize that your hands are still very much caked with grease!

    two canisters of the wipes
    Amazon

    Promising review: "Great product and have repurchased. Truly great in removing long time cumulated grease on stove top and cooking vents. Gave one away as gift and was told that it's also great in removing bike grease on hands." β€”sf

    Get a canister of 25 wipes from Amazon for $5.99.

    25. A Drop Stop car seat gap filler that'll help you say buh-bye to lost change, french fries, and even dropped phones.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have to admit, my expectations weren't very high. I thought it was more of a joke when my husband got this for me for Christmas. Little did I realize it would be one of my most favorite gadgets ever! I don't know if I realized just how many things went missing in my seat gap. It has really saved a lot of things from disappearing into that black hole. It was easy enough to fit into my car and it's soft! It's just like an extension of my seat, except it fits every curve of my seat! There really isn't another product that compares to this." β€”Tessa Forbes

    Get two from Amazon for $19.99.

    26. An EZPZ mat, aka a no-slip placemat/plate, your toddler will try their best to budge but they won't. MUHAHAHAHHAHA.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Does your child 'feed the dog' during meal time? While this dish won't guarantee they won't continue that fun habit, it sure helps. Instead of 'wiping all the food' off his highchair tray, now my grandson's food sits in this sturdy dish that can't move. And I mean can't! It stays put and the cut pieces are easy to pick up it. Easy to clean too!" β€”Reeve

    Get it from EZPZ or Amazon for $19.99 (and check out the rest of the EZPZ mats).

    27. A Turbie Twist so the days of balancing a heavy body towel on your head while you put on mascara is a thing of the past. Your poor neck! I have a LOT of hair past my shoulders and this bb handles it sopping wet, no problem.

    Turbie Twist

    Promising review: "As good as all the reviews and YouTube videos said. Being my favorite color and polka dots to boot? It doesn't get better. The fastener design is pretty genius, stays on well. I don't have very thick hair but I think it would be equally great for thick hair. If you have hair past your shoulders it would be longer than the length of the twist but I believe you can just tuck it inside and still be ok. It speeds up the drying process and keeps my curls curly and healthy since I get to avoid the hairdryer. I often have to lie down immediately after a shower and it protects my pillow from getting wet." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.35 (available in seven colors).

    28. SoapSox that'll help get your kid pumped for bath time β€” maybe β€” because they're adorable stuffed animals that transform into more or less a loofah once you put a bar of soap inside, like so.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Cute cute cute as can be. I love using this on my grand boys. They love playing with it. Just put a bit of soap on it to wash. Then rinse before letting little one play with it." β€”Dhuff

    Get the shark from Amazon for $15.98. And check out all the animals.

    29. Bambooee reusable towels to replace most (if not all!) of the paper towels you go through on the reg. Look at you, Captain Planet!

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I've had my Bambooee rolls for five months now. I love using it to clean most of the surfaces at home such as kitchen counter tops, table, and bathroom surfaces. I still buy paper towels for when I eat. This for me did not replace paper towels but it did replace the amount of paper towels I use. Instead of grabbing a paper towel to wipe down my kitchen counter top, I grab a Bambooee and clean up any mess.

    The great part about the Bambooee vs. a rag is that it does not smell! The bamboo never gets moldy or harbors any bacteria. You can tell by smell alone. You can use it multiple times, rinse it with water and soap, and then let it air dry by the sink. I hang mine under they sink. After one week of use, I'll throw it in a bin for wash. I wash it on hot with bleach and detergent. I do not put it in the dryer. It shrinks drastically when you do. Instead I air dry them. Stretch them out when they're still wet. Then after when they're dry I roll them back on to the roller it came with. I stick the whole roll under the sink. I have noticeably spent less on paper towels. I love this product so much!" β€”AmazonAddict

    Get a roll with 20 sheets from Amazon for $12.99.

    30. A Rapid Ramen Cooker that'll transform a brick of noods into the base for a delish meal in just three minutes in the microwave! 'Tis time to put that ramen you've been hoarding the pantry to tasty use.

    the cooker with ramen ingredients in it
    Amazon

    Promising review: "God's ramen cooker. This thing may seem like just an ordinary Tupperware, but I assure you it will blow that thin plastic garbage out of the water. It retains heat amazingly and does not bend or falter under extreme temperatures. I'm a college student and I have never felt such joy from making ramen in my small dorm microwave, for a 900-watt I recommend five minutes. Buy this product if you live and breathe air, because it is beautiful." β€”Theron

    Get it from Amazon for $9.79 (available in seven colors).

    31. A Rocketbook Wave Smart Notebook, which is really just fancy talk for a notebook you can take notes or scribble in, move those notes online, and then microwave the notebook to start with an *actual* blank slate. If you go through notebooks fast, you need this! (Use. That. Microwave!)

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this notebook β€” Shark Tank be damned! This is a very cool product and a great way to keep your notes electronically, but also have the time to process through handwriting (which the experts say is important). Great product β€” makes note-taking fun again!" β€”JeannieInMD

    Get it from Amazon for $17.62.
