    1. A no-scrub weekly shower cleaner you can quite literally "set and forget" to maintain its cleanliness over time — once you apply it after a shower, you just have to wait 8 to12 hours and it'll quietly tackle the soap scum, grime, oils, mold, and mildew stains without any elbow grease from you.

    Promising review: "We cannot BEGIN to tell you what a lifesaver this is! We have two old fiberglass tubs with vinyl shower enclosures that no matter what amount of scrubbing we have done with everything from bleach to cleanser to vinegar and baking soda would NOT come clean. After I took my shower last night, I sprayed down the tub and walls. Within minutes, all the built-up water deposits and dirt and grime began to melt away in front of my eyes. I left it on overnight, and when I got up this morning, it did not look like the same tub and shower. This product is a godsend, especially for old folks like us who have difficulty getting down on our hands and knees and scrubbing anything. More importantly, it performs as advertised. We plan on using it as part of our weekly cleanup routine, in addition to purchasing the Wet & Forget Mold and Mildew Remover for use on the vinyl siding of our house. This is truly an overnight sensation!" —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "Recently, thanks to COVID-19, I visited my parents and ended up staying with them to shelter in place. The guest bedroom is small with two beds. Mine is up against a wall. The sheets I bought pop off all the time. Drives me insane in normal circumstances, but when the bed is against a wall, it's so much worse. So far, these have been exactly what I needed." —Dee Fields

    Promising review: "Works great at a price you can't beat. I have had Silpats in the past that cost twice as much for a small one and so I thought they were all expensive. So, so wrong. You can have a mat that works great and doesn't break the bank." —leslie

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $10.90.

    4. A jar of internet-beloved The Pink Stuff, which tackles so many darn things that it'll be the BFF of every room in your house. Need to paint over a stain on the wall?

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    A lot of people compare it to the Magic Eraser in paste form, so even your weirdest, most stubborn stains will meet their match.

    Promising review: "I used this product for my stove because it's one thing I dislike like cleaning. I have used multiple degreaser sprays and they all are so toxic and don't work for me. The Magic Eraser was OK but I used several at a time and I had to scrub so hard. But this product oh my goodness, legit a miracle. It doesn't have any type of smell. I put the paste on a cloth, clean the area then wipe it off with a damp cloth and voilà, magic!" —May

    Get it from Amazon for $7.17.

    5. A plastic bag holder/dispenser so you can not only tame Mount Grocery Bag under your cabinets, but also have an easy, streamlined way to grab one and go when you need one in a hurry.

    Promising review: "This is an inexpensive way to keep my family's collection of plastic bags down to a reasonable amount, neat, and easily accessible. I mounted it with the adhesive strips and so far they are holding well. Satisfied so far!" —TidyMama

    Get it from Target for $7.29

    6. A set of zero-waste cleaning cubes made with all-natural ingredients that are really working overtime — they're primarily meant for the dishwasher, but these will also disinfect sinks, take care of laundry stains, and even deep clean blenders.

    Jialiving/Etsy

    Jialiving is a California-based Etsy shop established in 2020 that specializes in clean, nontoxic, and zero-waste products.

    Promising review: "To be honest I was hesitant at first but I’m becoming more environmentally friendly. I’m also allergic to so much stuff, it’s horrible. So I was like, I'ma try this, I have a crap dishwasher and it’s old. It gets junked up so easily. So I wanted to try something better. So I got it and it came in a huge mason jar which I love and it was already labeled for me too! This is amazing reusable packaging I’m 100% about. I tested it just in my sink with half a tab and four plates and bam cleaner than Meyer's soap! I love the scent and I love this product. My husband was shocked at how well and easy it is for him to use too. So no more excuses from the hubby. Definitely buying again! And definitely in love!" —Etsy reviewer

    7. A bottle of wood polish to instantly make your scuffed up doors, hardwood floors, and furniture look so spanking new that you'll wonder if it's not actually wood polish but a time machine. Why get new tables or fancy professional restoration when you've got a $9 secret weapon??

    Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn-out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs who jumped up and scratched places; we also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were, and several other areas that were just worn from heavy traffic. Take a look at the pictures to see the before-and-afters. This stuff was like a Magic Eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let it sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand new. I'm buying a couple more so we can finish our cabinets and wood paneling. We're so glad we found this product." —Kris

    8. An enzyme-based laundry stain remover that works its magic in one wash to help you instantly get rid of all that discolored dried sweat, oil stains, or deodorant residue on your favorite clothes.

    amazon.com

    This spray also does a number on all those other miscellaneous stains in your life, like wine, coffee, soy sauce, makeup, and period blood! I recently bought this to test it for myself, and can attest to how well it works to get period blood out even after you've tried something else. I stained a pair of beloved bright-blue bike shorts in my sleep and tried to get it out with soap and water, but the stain was still there when it came out of the wash. I treated it with this, stuck it back in the wash, and BOOM, it's like it never happened (I panicked before I could get a before and after, please forgive me, laundry gods).

    Promising review: "This is the BEST stain remover I have ever used.. EVER! This stuff keeps my 2-year-old son's clothes looking new! Anyone who has or has seen a 2-year-old will know how dirty their clothes can get. This has gotten out chocolate, grass, red juice, pasta sauce...you name it! I can literally watch the stains disappear (I know that sounds exaggerated but it’s 100% true. Not only is it the BEST stain remover I’ve ever used, but it’s natural, so I feel safe using it around my child, and you can’t beat the price. You have to try this stuff; once you do you’ll never go back." —whitney palmer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    9. A cold brew coffee maker so quick and easy to use that your blood might just become 90% caffeine soon. All you have to do is add coffee to the airtight brewer, add your water to the coffee maker, and pop it in the fridge overnight. BOOM, caffeine city.

    Promising review: "I don’t know what I did without this in my life. Easy to use, clean, and couldn’t beat the price!!!!! Love how it seals and I can drink it all week (not that it ever makes it that long)!!!!" —Rhiannon

    10. A foaming garbage disposal cleaner you can plop into your sink, run a little water on, and let its blue magic fizz its way up to the top while clearing out all the gunk from your culinary adventures in one go.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are amazing! I was skeptical at first but I followed the directions (which are super easy) and was grossed out and satisfied at the same time to see the gunk that was removed. You put the entire packet down your disposal (I read that twice too) and magic happens in under two minutes! That is what I call powerful and successful cleaning! The scent is super clean and light with a hint of lemon. These will definitely be a cleaning staple for me." —KPITT

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $9.94.

    11. A container of Museum Gel, a clear adhesive that cat owners and parents swear by — you can apply this to the bottom of glass or crystal to keep it locked in place on a surface, and it won't leave any residue behind.

    Psst — people who sell jewelry like rings and want to balance them on a surface for photos also swear by this! 

    Promising review: "Saw this on TikTok and I honestly absolutely love it. I use it to keep my drawer organizers from sliding around. This stuff is amazing and I wish I had known about it forever ago." —Abby

    12. A slim cutlery drawer organizer for anyone who is looking to make the most of their drawer space *and* make it that much easier to put their cutlery away.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.24 (available in two colors).

    13. A set of fast-acting Keurig cleaner pods you can simply put through a cycle on the machine to get rid of all the crusted-on grinds and residue that are *definitely* affecting the taste of your coffee, even if you haven't noticed over time.

    Promising review: "Love, love, love this. Have used other products but they were not only complicated to use but did not do a great job. This one really works well and is very simple to use! I have used the same metal mug for my morning coffee for about three years now and it got really stained. I used this product one time and the stains were removed. The coffee maker looks like new again. Soooo happy! Going to buy some for my son and will rebuy this for sure! The price is most reasonable also. Win/Win." —pennywrites

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $9.95.

    14. A reusable Swiffer duster head to avoid allergy-inducing dust buildup in your home *and* save money on replacements. Bonus: This is made with a nonfraying fleece fabric built to pick up dust more effectively and at a broader range than the OG version, thanks to the static it naturally generates.

    TS Designs/Etsy

    TS Designs is a Michigan-based Etsy shop established in 2016 that specializes in home products and country, rustic, and vintage-styled gifts and decor.

    Psst — the seller notes that this works best with Swiffers with the yellow handle, but also is compatible with the blue handle. You should avoid using fabric softener when washing this duster so it won't lose its static cling.

    Promising review: "Great washable duster replacement tops. They vacuum off and wash up easily, and they grab dust and cobwebs every bit as well as the disposable ones I was using. Considering it means putting a bit less into landfills and also saving money in the long run, I only wish I had bought these years ago, sincerely. Also they shipped very promptly and arrived sooner than expected, so that was a pleasant surprise. Thanks!" —otherlings

    Get it from TS Designs on Etsy for $5.49 (available in ten colors).

    15. An MVP-worthy pet urine stain–removing spray that instantly tackles both old and new stains *plus* the yucky smell, so you can enjoy the quality time you're getting with your pet without sacrificing your carpet and/or your nostrils.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Rocco & Roxie Supply Company is a family-owned small business established in 2013 that specializes in pet odor eliminators, pet toys, pet snacks, and pet accessories.

    Promising review: "I don’t know how I ever survived without this. There’s tons of 'pet stain/odor remover' products out there, but this by far is the absolute best. I cringed paying the $20 for it when others are between $5–$10, but I have NO ISSUES paying now. I foster dogs, some puppies, some older, some not house broken and every room in my house is carpeted except the kitchen which means I have lots of accidents. I spray enough to saturate if it’s a lot of urine, let it soak for 10 minutes then wipe it up with a hand towel. Then I put a larger towel on top of it if it’s in a high-traffic area until it’s completely dry. It’s taken out every stain and more importantly the odor is gone! I will never stop buying this product. I recommend it to everyone who has dogs!" —Shelley

    Get it from Amazon for $19.94.

    16. A power scrubber brush you can attach to a DRILL (!!) that basically does all of the hard grime-busting for you, whether you're tackling rust stains, shower doors, tiles, gutters, porches, or pretty much any other caked-on stain and grime you can imagine.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've been eyeing these for a few months and finally caved. Man do I regret not picking them up as soon as I saw them! They work GREAT! We rent an apartment that has a 30+ year old shower/tub. I've used everything from abrasive powders, gels that sit to most recently the bathroom magic erasers and nothing really got the grime out. These WORK and they work fast. Ten minutes with my handy drill and the shower has never been cleaner. I love that I don't have to throw money out on cleaning products anymore and that I can be a little more environmentally friendly with no waste and no chemical cleaners! Just a little dish soap, baking soda, and a spin of the brush. If you're on the fence, just buy them!" —Becky Adie

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $14.99 (available in six colors).

    17. A broom for pet and human hair that can work on any type of floor, but is specifically designed to pull it up from the carpet faster and deeper than even a lot of vacuums can reach. In less than five minutes you'll find out what color your carpet's *actually* been the whole time!

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    An embarrassing confession: I do not have a pet, but I shed like nobody's business. My hair gets so ingrained in the carpet that a vacuum truly does nothing for it, so I often was just unrooting clumps of hair from the floor with my hands (sorry for the visual). I bought this broom and it immediately started pulling it up GOBS of hair. My carpet like, genuinely changed color (turns out the pink was supposed to be much pinker, whoops). Anyway, do with that semi-horrifying information what you will — you can read my full review of the pet hair broom for more deets.

    Promising review: "I have two dogs — a terrier mix and a short-hair dachshund mix. I have a navy woven couch that LOVES my dachshund's fur. I have tried pretty much everything to get the fur out — traditional lint roller, those blue fuzzy lint rollers, special vacuum attachments, etc. The terrier's fur comes out great with all of those options. The dachshund's fur, much like the dachshund herself, remains stubbornly on my couch. I got this product as the new 'let's see if it works' item of the month with low expectations. THE FUR ACTUALLY CAME OUT GUYS. It acts like a broom for my couch — sweeping the fur (with some elbow grease) basically onto the floor where I vacuum it up! Give this a try if my story sounds pretty similar to yours!" —JT

    Get it from Amazon for $12.44.

    18. A bunch of Miracle-Gro "food spikes" for your potted plants that will continuously feed them for 30 to 60 days, and can bring even the saddest-looking plants back from the brink of death. Now you can go back to the sweet, sweet bliss of being only semi-responsible for a living thing.

    Promising review: "I really like these sticks. They are really easy to put in, as they come with a plastic hole poker to make your hole in the soil. They seem to fertilize the soil well for a good period of time, and the price cannot be beat. Miracle-Gro scores another point with this product, and I highly recommend it for your indoor plants!" —JohnnyC

    19. The Always Pan from Our Place, which is perfect for anyone who has big culinary ambitions, but needs a (highly functional!) nudge. This BuzzFeed-beloved nonstick pan is actually eight pieces of cookware in one, and is designed braise, sear, steam, strain, sauté, fry, boil, serve, and store. Basically, if you can dream it, you can cook it in this bb.

    Abby Kass/BuzzFeed

    Here's what BuzzFeed Shopping writer Taylor Steele has to say about the Always Pan: "As someone who neither enjoys cooking nor is particularly good at it, the Always Pan has made being in the kitchen feel like less of a chore. Having one pan that can do everything means I don't have to second-guess every cooking decision I make. I can boil and prepare pasta in it. And I can roast Brussels sprouts. And I can make the perfect fried egg. And I can steam dumplings. The best part is that everything slides so seamlessly out of the pan and onto the plate, which also makes clean up super fast and easy. Both the amateur (read: reluctant) cook and the more seasoned chef will enjoy creating fan favorites and new recipes in the Always Pan!"

    Also, BuzzFeeders LOVE this pan. Here's our review of the Always Pan, in which seven members of our team weigh in everything they love about it, from the nonstick coating to the versatility to the ~aesthetic~.

    20. A Kitchen Helper tower perfect for littles who want in on the meal prep and baking action — not only will it give you more quality time together, but it'll help them foster independence and learn new skills. PLUS it's height adjustable, so it'll grow with them ❤️.

    Montessori House Bed/Etsy

    This product is recommended for children aged 1 to 5 years.

    Montessori House Bed is a family-owned Etsy shop established in 2017 that specializes in home and play products designed for kids.

    Promising review: "Beautiful tower! I love the compact size of this tower. I didn’t want something huge that would be in my way all the time. This is perfect! My 2.5-year-old loves the fact that she can move it herself and be independent in the kitchen. It is so easy for her to move that she pushes it all around the house to use in any room she wants. Very sturdy and will last for years. I spent many hours looking at towers and trying to pick the perfect one. I found it!" —P

    Get it from Montessori House Bed on Etsy for $136+ (originally $170; available in four colors).

    21. A reusable microfiber Swiffer mop pad that reviewers love not only because it's ready for action again right after a wash cycle, but because it picks up a *ton* more dirt, gunk, and debris than the disposable mops do. Your kitchen floor is finally gonna shine ✨.

    Reviewer image of dirty mop head
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought these for the same reasons most do — to be more environmentally friendly. I like the size of my Swiffer Sweeper, but always felt like I wasn't getting my floors fully clean. We recently got a new apartment, and I always like to deep clean before we do any major moving. I used them dry and wet. I've always been disappointed with how the disposable pads from Swiffer (barely) picked up dog fur and crumbs, but as you can see in the picture it picked up so much! This was already after using a traditional broom. Then using them wet with diluted Mrs. Meyer's cleaning concentrate — wow! The water was BLACK by the time I was all done with our downstairs area. They were so easy to Velcro on and off, wet or dry. Once I was all done, getting them off and doing a quick rinse wasn't hard at all. I love that I am supporting a small family business with all the convenience of Amazon. I will definitely buy again (if I ever have to). I am so excited to use these for years to come and have a cleaner house than I ever have before!!" —Kathryn Willer

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $14.99.

    Psst — if you don't already have one, you can get a standard Swiffer on Amazon for $16.84

    22. A mini steamer for your clothes that heats up in literally a minute and a half, so you can stop doing that thing where you hang your shirts up on the door while you're in the shower and pray to the fabric gods that the wrinkles magically disappear.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love this little steamer! For the price, you can’t beat it. I use it almost daily. My old one was a different brand and would randomly quit in the middle of steaming and need to heat up again. This one has not done that at all, keeps going strong day after day." —LoveLeoCustomCrafts

    23. A Petcube, which is basically a Furbo without all the extra bells and whistles — this super-reliable pet-monitoring camera has a wide angle and night vision so you can check on your pet 24/7 and even talk to them, giving you a whole new peace of mind whenever you leave the house.

    It's also app enabled and can send you instant notifications, sync with Amazon Alexa, and even access a vet on demand if you notice any weird behaviors.

    Promising review: "Unbeatable for the money. I needed a way to keep an eye on a new 4-month-old puppy who keeps digging holes in my yard. I didn't expect a lot for $39 but I was pleasantly surprised. The video is quick to get started and very clear, zoom is quick, and the night vision actually works. I haven't used any of the other features yet but these alone make this a great value! Far exceeding what I expected." —Rick Grisham

    24. A six-outlet wall charger designed specifically for larger chargers that also comes equipped with two USB fast-charging ports *and* a night-light, so you can get rid of that ugly power strip on the floor by your bed you keep tripping on in the middle of the night.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These things are amazing. I have one in almost every room of my house. The light is just enough to be able to see at night to use the restroom or navigate the house without turning every light on. I love that the USB ports are built in — no more looking for an adapter. AND the plugs are set far enough apart you can plug some of the bigger things like Google Assistant or large AC adapters and still have plenty of room!!! These are a must-have in a tech or smarthome." —SeiranCrow

    25. A glass and ceramic cookware cleanup kit that comes with heavy-duty scrubber, a razor blade, *and* a cleaner specifically designed to get at those caked-on stains, so you can knock it all off in a few minutes and get your Ina Garten game face on in peace.

    Promising review: "We bought our cooktop five months ago and it started developing really bad marks and stains. I tried everything to get it off, including baking soda, different detergents, etc. Really thought it was hopeless. We even tried to return our cooktop but because we couldn't we decided to give it one last try. Using the two tool that come with this cleaner we got 100% of the impossible stains off. I could not recommend this product more!!" —luckyrabbit

    26. A bottle of Bar Keepers Friend soft cleansing liquid and scouring cloth to quickly take care of even long-term, caked-on stains on everything from steel appliances to pans to stove tops to sinks — *without* scratching surfaces.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I used the product on my stainless-steel gas range and it worked amazingly!!!! I have tried so many other things and it was so hard getting the stains from the water (over flow of potatoes and pasta) and oil spills that would burn on to the range off. For a while thought this would be permanent. It bothered me so much to have a clean kitchen and my range would be this way. I let it sit on my range for about 15 minutes because the stains were there for so long then I scrubbed it with the scrub cloth that was provided and you can obviously see the results in my picture. My stove looks as it did when we first moved in our new home. Definitely purchase this, you won’t be disappointed ☺️" —Ci B.

A set of heavy-duty wipes that are most definitely not here to play — they're basically the paper towel version of The Rock, and can lift up stains on anything from grease to permanent marker to nail polish. Bonus: They're tough on stains, but the aloe vera in them makes them super gentle on skin!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff really is magical! When we moved into our house, the previous owners did a horrible job of cleaning the stainless-steel appliances. There were permanent run marks going down the front that I could not remove...and I tried EVERYTHING. I should note that I’m not actually positive that these appliances are true stainless steel or just manufactured to look like that. I wanted to cry tears of joy after wiping down the dishwasher because I had been looking at those awful run marks for three years and they were finally gone! The whole tub is worth it for that appliance alone. As of now, I’ve only used it in the kitchen, but I plan on using it the next time I clean out my car, too. If it looks half as good as I think it will, I’ll be a customer for life!" —MayBae

    Promising review: "These are spectacular!!! They are airtight so the week's food I do for lunches and such stay fresh for the whole week. They are strong and very durable. The four-part latching system ensures your food is completely sealed. The seal ring is removable for easy cleaning. The nice pop-top vent allows food to cool if packed in hot. Once cool, close pop-top and stick in the fridge. Husband is rough on things including his lunch box and so far these are holding up so nice!! Many others I have tried have been broken in a matter of days. I love these!!!" —Deborah

    31. A rose-gold rechargeable electric lighter you can use to replace those clunky, unsightly gas ones and the pile of matches in your drawer. This one is not only chic as heck, but completely flameless, and made with a long stem so you can use it to light gas burners and larger candles without dealing with an open flame.

    This also comes in other pretty colors, but I am especially partial to this one because I bought it for my parents (their kitchen is entirely pink and one of my favorite places on Earth), and this was SO EASY to use — not to mention super safe! I'm a big weenie about fire (LOL, self-preservation) so I've always stuck to extended-arm gas lighters, but this is much better for the environment (plus cuter), so I feel a lot better about using it. You can read my full review of the Leejie electric lighter for more deets!

    Promising review: "Works like a charm. I saw this on a TikTok. Knew immediately that I needed it. I love candles and this is so much better than a match or lighter. It’s kept a charge for months. I use it several times a month." —dwhite3012

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in five colors).

    32. A dishwasher magnet so nobody ever has to do the awkward guessing game of "what is the current status of this plate I want to eat off of" (or worse, nobody accidentally puts a bunch of dirty dishes away 😬).

    Promising review: "I bought this because of a TikTok video. Super cool and now nobody has to ask me if the dishes are clean or not." —D. Washington

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    33. A set of stackable fridge drawers so you can finally achieve sweet, sweet organized fridge bliss. The transparency of these is also great because it reminds you to eat your fruits + veggies before they go bad!

    Promising review: "Excellent organization system! I once opened the fridge often, always looking for something I hadn't seen the last time I checked. The thing is — I often found something new because it just wasn't organized in a functional way. Now, with this system, I find what I'm looking for the first time. And when a bin is empty, I know I need to buy more of that product and just ask my smarthome to add that item to my shopping list. Very grateful for the sense of calm and control that this fridge organization system has given me, and for all of the food that is no longer going bad in the back of the fridge!" —Chelsea T.

    34. Plus a pair of airtight cereal dispensers to tame the precarious pile of cereal boxes threatening to fall off the top of your fridge at any moment.

    Psst — a lot of people use this to safely store pet food, too!

    Promising review: "We have three kids and a very small kitchen with very little cabinet/counter space!!! We used to keep our cereal boxes on top of our refrigerator, but I've been trying to declutter, and also come up with a solution for our kids to be able to get their own cereal in the mornings. THIS IS IT!!!! It looks great on our counter and we have very little space, so it fits just right! This has been the perfect solution to giving our kids the independence they need to get their own breakfast! It has been a lifesaver!!! Love it!!!" —tenle

    Get it from Amazon for $39.97 (available in four colors).

    35. A four-piece sock and underwear organizer to spare you the indignity of rooting around your dresser drawers every morning looking for that one! specific! bra!! that is *definitely* in there somewhere. (The comfy one, to be clear.)

    Promising review: "I LOVE LOVE LOVE these organizers!! At just $15 for four organizers I took my chances and ordered two sets of four. I wear a 32DD and the bras fit beautifully in the organizers. I ordered another set for tank tops and other extras I did not think of before. I will also order my boyfriend the brown ones for his drawers. Great product for a great price!" —Elizabeth L. Blackwell

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $15.87+ (available in seven colors).

    36. A pair of cut-resistant gloves for anyone whose cooking style is every bit as messy as their human life — these are designed to be four times stronger (!!) than leather to keep your digits safe.

    Promising review: "I bought the gloves because I had two nasty cuts in quick succession from a cheese grater. Anyone who has had injuries to their fingers knows how difficult it is to continue to do everyday activities and meal preparation while still protecting your wound. I received the gloves quickly after my order and pressed them into use immediately that evening. I am most impressed. My fingers/hands were protected from my very sharp grater and knife while I prepared dinner. I bought two pairs, one to keep and one to give as a gift. I am now going to buy a third pair in a larger size for a friend who also likes to cook but suffers from occasional run-ins with mandolines, graters, and knives. Great product!" —O'Hare

    Each set includes five hangers for Monday through Friday. 

    White Loft is an Austin-based, woman-owned small business that specializes in growth charts, gifts, and home organization. 

    Promising review: "These are great! They’ll absolutely make mornings easier with clothes preselected for the week. My kindergartner will easily be able to get himself dressed for school. I plan to buy these for my other kids as well so my husband can dress our kids in clothes that actually work together (ha!). Great quality and great idea!" —Stephanie 

    Get a set of five from White Loft on Amazon for $24.95, on Etsy for $24.95, or on their website for $24.95

    38. A popular pan shelf to instantly organize all those cabinets that are basically just an unhelpful void of space you keep shoving things into and hoping they don't fall back out on your feet.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "We have old cupboards, without the drawers that pull out to make access easier. Before we got this rack, our pots and pans were a jumble in a cupboard beneath the cook top. We have so much more space now that the skillets are stacked on this rack. A side benefit is that the nonstick pans don't get scratched because they aren't stacked inside one another. We love it." —Susan E.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.87.

    39. A set of clear Command strips to install a cute (and easily removable!) little mask station by your front door — a perfect reminder for anyone who is constantly looking for a spare or has a tendency to jet out the door without one.

    The sticky backing on these are strong enough to support objects, but designed to be easy to remove by tugging at the bottom of the sticker to gently undo the adhesive without damaging the paint or the wall. This is my little "mask station" up top — you can read more about some of BuzzFeeders' favorite face masks for more cute and handy finds!

    Promising review: "I have long been a fan of Command hooks. I bought these to finally get some pieces hung in my house. I can now look over and see some of my favorites hanging on the wall instead of just resting against the books on the shelves. They are easy to use and I've never had one ruin a wall." —P. Woodland

    Get a pack of seven from Amazon for $11.99.

    40. A lazy Susan turntable for your pantry or fridge that will make storing and perusing your condiment stash so much more painless, since you can access the Sriracha without ketchup, mustard, and a half-eaten tub of frosting landing on your unsuspecting toe.

    Promising review: "Our fridge is extremely deep and we’re constantly 'losing' or forgetting what items we have in the back, but not anymore! The nonstick pad works great to keep heavy or large items from falling off, and with a touch of a finger, you can completely spin around. I’m so happy with this product, I’ll be purchasing more for other areas of my house. :-)" —Moorefoto17

    Get it from Amazon for $9.27 (available in two colors).

    41. An over-the-door hair appliance organizer to help you win back the five minutes you spend untangling your hairdryer from your straightener like siblings that picked fights with each other every morning.

    Promising review: "This did exactly what I needed it to. Before all my items were in a drawer and the cords were a pain, but with this metal basket it minimized clutter, kept things organized and separate, and also looks nice. It fits two of my blow-dryers, a flat iron, and a curling wand. The bars are adjustable as well (just used the twisties it came with to secure them in place, but the basket fit perfectly to my cabinet). Worth the buy." —Alyssa Jewell

    Get it on Amazon for $18.99+ (available in eight colors).

    42. A set of three adorable, machine washable Swedish dish cloths — they're super absorbent and designed with a crosshatch pattern for easier scrubbing. Each one of these can replace over a DOZEN paper towel rolls. The Brawny paper towel man is shaking.

    Promising review: "I originally picked these up to use in lieu of nasty, nasty dishrags that invoke my inner THIS IS NOT CLEAN demon. Since then, I have used them for everything from cleaning the kitchen to wiping up spills. After use, just toss in the wash and they are ready to go again. They are the perfect size and do an excellent job on every task to which I have applied them. They come in a variety of fun prints and I have yet to wear one out. Paper towel usage has taken a real nosedive, which is a good thing given its relative scarcity at present." —sandra simpson-kraft

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $14.80 (available in 12 prints).

    43. A set of velvet closet hangers designed to cling ever so slightly to your clothes, both so the clothes stay put more firmly on the hanger, and so they flatten a bit to reduce the bulk of some of your clothing (hello, all 10,000 of my oversized flannels) takes up.

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    I bought about 60 of these six years ago just to streamline the ~aesthetic~ of my closet, and I have now carried them with me through three closets and two big moves and can't imagine using any other kind of hanger. The velvet locks all my shirts and coats in place so I never have to worry about finding them bunched up at the bottom of my closet whenever I jostle them looking for something to wear, and they have been a *godsend* for reducing the space taken up in my closet. I also just love how sleek and organized they make my closet look. A few reviewers mentioned the velvet coming off on their clothes, but I've never had an issue with the beige ones.

    Get a set of 30 from Amazon for $16.49 (available in five colors, three sizes of sets, and in shirt, skirt, and suit hangers).

    44. Plus an S-shaped hanger specifically designed for pants, scarves, and towels if you want to drastically free up those crammed dresser drawers by giving their contents a new home.

    Promising review: "These hangers were exactly what I was hoping they would be. They are extremely sturdy (a little heavy but not too heavy), they held my pants in place, and due to the S shape you can quickly see what is on the entire hanger without having to move things around and give my closet that extra space I desperately needed. I will also mention that they were packaged probably better than any other thing I've every received. The care and time it took to package them that well was incredible. I would clearly buy again and plan to. :)" —Colleen Noyes

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (also available in sets).

    45. A sparkling-wine saver that will keep your bubblies bubbling so you can pop a bottle any day of the week without worrying about wasting the leftovers. Seriously — try your prosecco five days after the fact and it'll basically taste untouched??

    I purchased one of these at the aggressive behest of a friend, and it's LEGIT. I told myself I was a Red Wine Lady my whole life because it was easier to save for later, but now that I don't live in constant fear of wasting the bubbly stuff, I am an All Wine Lady and have finally achieved my truest form.

    Promising review: "I purchased this stopper after seeing one being used at a local wine tasting event. I enjoy sparkling wines, but either have to drink the whole bottle myself before it gets flat (ugh) or throw it out (terribly wasteful). This product was the answer to my problem! It is very easy to use and keeps my sparkling beverage fresh and bubbly! Definitely a must!" —MKC

    46. A set of light-dimming stickers, so you can finally stop shoving your pillow over your eyeballs whenever you tilt your face toward one of the LED lights blasting their glow like tiny UFOs in your room at night.

    amazon.com

    They come in a pack of all different sizes, so you can find the perfect ones to match your gizmos and finally get a good night's sleep.

    Promising review: "I wish I'd had these for the last 15 years. If you have electronics in your bedroom and hate the light they put out, this is what you're looking for. Now all my chargers are nice and dim, my Bluetooth audio device no longer guides ships safely to shore, and I can leave my amplifier on a sleep timer without planes headed into the nearby international airport mistaking it for runway lights." —J.G. Kerns
