    52 Things You Might Want Because, In The Words Of Sebastian, “The Human World Is A Mess”

    The seaweed is always greener in somebody else's lake, but at least the clutter and mess can be slightly more handled in yours.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. 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.

    This spray also does a number on all those other miscellaneous stains in your life, like wine, coffee, make up, and period blood!

    Promising review: "For whatever reason, I am ALWAYS spilling things on my shirts and I cook every night (sometimes I remember the apron, sometimes I don't). My clothes are a mess by the end of the day. I'm not proud of it, but there it is. I have tried EVERYTHING there is to remove stains and this is the absolute BEST thing out there. (There is simply not a major stain remover that I have not tried.) The only thing close is a long pre-soak (I mean like six hours) in Oxyclean. With Puracy, you get the best result by doing it well in advance, but for me that is another plus because I would far rather spray them when I put them in the hamper than do it all at once just before I do the laundry. It seems to get everything out and I've never had any trouble with damaged fabric. I don't really review very much, but this is seriously outstanding." —NYC Buyer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.30.

    2. A dual-sided device cleaner with two sides — one with an antimicrobial-treated cleaning solution to clear off the grime, and another with a soft polishing buffer to make it gleam.

    youtube.com

    One side dispenses a cleaning solution that kills bacteria, and the other side polishes the surface off so it looks nice and shiny.

    Promising review: "Saw a friend at work using this; she showed me and I had to have one. I wasn't disappointed. Gets all the gunk off my phone, iPad, computer screens, and my kids' Kindles. Getting these for gifts this year. Awesome." —kevin

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    3. A set of dishwasher cleaning tablets you can pop into a cycle with your dirty dishes to wipe out all the extra grime and that funky smell you can never seem to get rid of no matter how hard you try. You don't even need to scrub — these do all the work for you!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Saved me from buying a new dishwasher!I have to admit that I was skeptical that this product was actually going to do anything. I’ve noticed my dishwasher wasn’t cleaning dishes very well lately, and I did everything I could to get it working properly again, but was ready to finally give up and buy a new dishwasher. I bought these tablets thinking they were designed to eliminate odors, but I was willing to give them a shot before buying a whole new dishwasher. I put one in the bottom of the dishwasher last night per the instructions and woke up to completely clean dishes for the first time in weeks. They look perfect. I don’t know why these tablets work but they absolutely did and I am a happy customer!" —B. Turner

    4. A vinyl plastic vaccine card sleeve with a resealable top just to make *extra* sure it won't rain on your vaccinated parade. (This also comes with handy holes for lanyards).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Perfect for safeguarding the CDC COVID-19 Vaccine card. Just HATE that the CDC didn’t produce wallet-sized cards to begin with.The plastic and the zip lock are sturdy and can be attached to a lanyard. It’s definitely sized correctly for the CDC card. I pass these out to family and friends when they get their dose of vaccine. It’s necessary to protect the low quality cards with your vaccine batch number stickers." —B.

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $6.99 (also available in five-, ten-, 20-, and 50-packs).

    5. An adorably encouraging daily planner you can fill out throughout the course of each day to keep yourself on track for all your calls, goals, and even your water intake. It's like you've got your own babysitter in a note pad, basically.

    6. A chic faux crocodile laptop case in a sunshine-y yellow to protect your beloved Zoom machine when it gets jostled as you take it from room to room (aka, Bed Office to Couch Office to the occasional Kitchen Office).

    Promising review: "This product blew my mind. We had tried everything to get rid of this wine stain including white wine and pouring salt all over it. After spraying it with wine away, it completely disappeared in less than five seconds — and it smells like oranges! It also worked when I spilled coffee on the carpet a few days later." —Mattan Griffel

    Get it from Amazon for $11.85.

    8. 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

    9. A vintage-inspired storage ottoman for some ~sneaky storage~ to help de-clutter your space (and flex your very cute taste in furniture).

    Amazon, Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    Another bonus? If you flip the lid over, it has a wooden base, so you can *also* use this as a teensy snack table. I recently got one of these for my new apartment to stash my candles and ~candle accessories~ in and it's pretty much become my favorite piece of furniture?? I use it to prop up my feet during work hours and sometimes if I want to eat on my couch I'll use it as a tray. It's also sturdy enough to sit on, if I ever wanted to have guests over and needed an extra chair. It was RIDICULOUSLY easy to set up — I had it done in less than ten minutes, and probably didn't even need the directions. It also just looks so darn cute (and comes in so many colors that I'm tempted to buy another!).

    Promising review: "I was using a small foldable step stool in my bedroom to reach the top shelves of my wardrobe. But you know, those things aren’t pretty. It wasn’t be bringing me joy, just begrudging utility. This ottoman brings me joy. It’s pretty, it’s lightweight so I can move it easily to use it as a step stool, and the storage capacity is perfect for things like my nightly moisturizers, my kindle and journals, and other little miscellaneous things." —Monica N.

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99 (available in nine colors).

    10. An all-purpose car upholstery cleaner so you can go ham on the interior of your car and lift up all the stains in one deeply satisfying go.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Holy moly, how did I never know that this existed?? This cleaner is nothing short of a miracle!! My backseat bench has been dirty with mystery stains now for at least a decade, stains that were created by little kids, various passengers, cargo, who knows. I tried EVERYTHING to get out the hazy, dirty staining on my charcoal colored seats to no avail. Hot water and soap, alcohol based rubs, carpet cleaners, fabric cleaners — literally EVERYTHING plus lots of elbow grease. I grew frustrated and resigned that my car will look like a dump forever. Then I started doing some research and came upon this cleaner. Many reviews stated it was the best thing ever, car sites named it their top choice etc, I decided its worth a last-ditch try and boy I am so glad I did! It took four to five sprays, some minor agitating and rubbing with a broad brush, wipe off with the enclosed cloth and whaddaya know?? POOF! STAINS GONE! I simply can't believe how easy this was and how pain free, I will go tomorrow and clean ALL my car seats! I highly recommend this, it’s the bomb." —Manddun

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    11. A pair of air-tight cereal dispensers to tame the precarious pile of cereal boxes threatening to fall off the top of your fridge at any moment.

    amazon.com

    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 de-clutter, 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 $27.87 (available in four colors and also as a single dispenser).

    12. A roll-up closet organizer if you, like me, are someone who collects random T-shirts from events and various fandoms that they have started a small nest on your closet floor that may or may not be blocking the door 😬.

    The Roll Keeper/Etsy

    The Roll Keeper is a Washington-based Etsy shop established in 2018 that specializes in crafting and closet organization.

    Each organizer holds 32 T-shirts (16 on each side), although some reviewers use it for leggings and gym clothes, too!

    Promising review: "Wish I had known this existed sooner! I was able to get three large drawers' worth of space back by using this (which is super necessary when two people are trying to share a far-too-small apartment). Definitely will order again if more space is needed (for more than just T-shirts)." —Leigh Anne Tiffany

    Get the 32 T-shirt version from The Roll Keeper on Etsy for $28.99 (or the 16 T-shirt version on Amazon Handmade for $19.99).

    13. A keyboard cleaning gel, because if you are anything like me then working from home means that your laptop is working overtime both as a keyboard and as a lunch tray ("Alexa, how do you get Cheez-It crumbs out of a laptop fan???).

    Amazon

    People also use this on air-conditioning units in their cars, remote controls, and other small areas with nooks and crannies that are hard to clean!

    Promising review: "Works just as advertised. Easy to use just apply moderate pressure to say, a keyboard and dust/any debris is stuck to the gel. Doesn't leave a residue and the odor is pleasant. Better to use this than just blowing the dust away for it just to relocate elsewhere. Thank you for a simple yet amazing product." —Zach Durham

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (available in two colors).

    14. An internet-beloved pet urine stain-removing spray that instantly tackles both old and new stains *plus* the yucky smell, so you can enjoy the new quality time you might be getting with your pet without sacrificing your carpet and/or your nostrils.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    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 $19.97.

    15. A power scrubber brush you can attach to a DRILL (!!) that basically does all of the hard grime-busting for you, so you don't have to have sore arms for a week just because you dared to wipe down the shower.

    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 it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in six colors).

    16. An internet-beloved time-marked water bottle designed to prevent mess — not only is the spillproof mouth piece super easy to access, but it the water bottle won't sweat even when the water inside is super cold (as much as we all love accidentally getting everything wet with our clammy hands).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love the finish on the bottle! I hate holding wet water bottles and this does NOT sweat! It also holds two full bottles of 16.9-oz. packages water bottles so it’s very easy to get my full water intake on the go! Easy to carry, fits in my car's cup holders perfectly (not big at all like some water bottles). I got the ombré purple to teal and it’s very true to color. Easy to clean, wide enough for bottle brushes, and the straw stays put. I also love how I just push the little button by the mouthpiece and it just pops open quick for easy drinking (if you’re driving and don’t need to be messing around opening bottles😉). Highly recommend this water bottle. For the price, it’s amazing! Keeps my water cool for hours too." —Alicia

    Get it on Amazon for $17.99 (available in 17 colors).

    17. A set of Bottle Bright tablets so you can tackle all those caked-on stains in your bottles, travel mugs, and even coffee makers without scrubbing them into eternity and wasting a small ocean's worth of hot water.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting Hydro Flask coffee mug; I tried everything — bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING — and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER Hydro Flask to replace it. Eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand-new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much that I used it on another Hydro Flask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING." —Amazon Customer

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $8.

    18. A set of washing machine cleaning tablets that'll tackle that weird mold + mildew smell in one cycle. Your laundry will come out so fresh that you'll hold your nose up to it like you're auditioning to play "Human In Scented Detergent Commercial."

    Promising review: My older model Whirlpool washing machine had been smelling very bad for about two months. We tried everything, white vinegar, beach, etc, it would stay fresh smelling for two days then back to the bad moldy smell. I read this product works so I ordered it. Used one tablet and the smell is gone!!! It has been three weeks now and it just smells fresh, no strong perfume odor either! Buy this product you will not regret it!!!" —A.C.

    19. A Filtrete air purifier with a user-friendly design and a handy dandy true HEPA filter for dust, pollen, smoke, odor, and pet dander — yeah, that's right, the whole mess of things in the air you can't even see with your eyeballs. TBH, this can be a godsend for anyone with seasonal or pet allergies.

    This unit is meant for small to medium rooms like kitchens, home offices, and bedrooms; you can check out more air purifier sizes on Filtrete's product page to suit your room's needs.

    Promising review: "What a great product. I live in the desert southwest and on a good day we are constantly battling dust and sand. Plus my dog sheds a lot. I have lung issues and due to the dust in the Phoenix area I have had valley fever twice which is a result of breathing in the affected dust. This medium room sized air cleaner is making a big difference. It was super easy to set up. It is also super easy to check the filter and change it when the time comes. It is helping in the fight against all the stuff that is in the air in my house. It is very quiet even at the higher speeds. The controls are easy to work and figure out. It has a true HEPA filter to battle a lot of the stuff that is floating around in my house due to the sand and the dog hair. I feel the air we are taking in in our big room is cleaner. With what is going on, I am glad this machine is taking out some of the bad stuff we were breathing. Great machine." —wutanglen

    Get it from Amazon (with two replacement filters) for $117.94.

    20. 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.com

    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 $3.98.

    21. A 3D-printed key holder/envelope keeper, aka an organizational BFF for anyone whose front hall breeds chaos. This way you can keep your outgoing mail and keys in your direct line of sight when you're in a rush on the way out the door.

    amazon.com

    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

    Get a bottle from Amazon for $8.48.

    23. A set of reviewer-loved extra large Dropps wool dryer balls that not only will help reduce drying time and prevent wrinkles on your clothes, but will pick up all the uninvited guests still clinging to them like pet hair, lint, and fuzzies.

    Promising review: "This product is so amazing, I'm going to get one for all of my children. I am a teacher, and I let my students use my microwave. Usually it takes me half an hour of scrubbing after 31 students have made popcorn, and heated up lunches. This time I used the product, and I literally spent less than one minute just wiping down the microwave!!! I will now keep one in my classroom, and one at my home. A miracle product that actually does what it says, remarkable!!!" —Desiree Barlow

    25. A batch of No Cow protein energy bars for anyone who's constantly on the move and does not have time for 1) extremely spill-able coffee, or 2) extremely spoil-able protein sources like eggs and meat. Each of these comes packed with 12 g of protein and 45 mg of caffeine so you can get that one-two punch without the "ohhh no" mess.

    For perspective, 12g of protein is about the protein of two eggs, and 45mg of caffeine is about half of an eight-ounce cup of coffee. These bars are also dairy-free, gluten-free, and vegan.

    Promising review: "This bar is delicious! It tastes like a brownie and has a good texture with no bad after taste. The caffeine kick is awesome because as a mom of two on the go I need something easy and all in one. I eat one of these around 10am and I have a sustainable, non-jittery energy for the rest of the morning and even for workouts. I love knowing that this bar is made of good ingredients as well! All I can say is TRY IT!" —Sarah Findley

    I'm talking stainless-steel appliances, pots and pans, shower stalls, sinks, tubs —and everything's going to gleam like the day it was first born.

    Promising review: "I had a chemical stain in kitchen sink from a clogged drain. I tried everything for a year to get rid of it. I saw this product being used on a video to get their stain out and it worked for them. I purchased and this stuff was working like magic. The sink drain was real black. I poured this on and left a half hour. When I wiped with sponge I could not believe the black was not stainless-steel color. I did go over the other sink stain a few times and the stains were gone. So happy I do not have to replace the sink." —Liberty

    28. 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 $17.12 (available in five colors, three sizes of sets, and in shirt, skirt, and suit hangers).

    29. 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: "If I would've known how indispensable the hangers are I'd have bought them ages ago. They're sturdy, haven't shown any bend or breakage. I'm pleased with my purchase. They've been an immense help with pairing down the bulkiness of my really really small closet. An additional purchase will be soon for the only other really really small closet in my older home." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (also available in sets).

    30. A six-outlet wall charger designed specifically for larger chargers that also comes equipped with two USB fast-charging ports *and* a nightlight, so you can get rid of that ugly power strip on the floor you keep tripping on by your bed 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 smart home." —SeiranCrow

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    31. A hard-water stain remover that will spare you hours of fruitless scrubbing, plus spare your poor eyeballs the cringe of seeing a stain massacre every time you open your shower curtain.

    It also works on shower doors, windshields, toilets, and tile, so you can get a ton of bang for your buck.

    Promising review: "Had hard water stains on my large glass window in my huge walk-in shower. I tried everything out there for several months. Nothing even touched it. Honestly, we purchased this and laughed at how we were wasting more money. Wow!! It took the stains right off. And it did it fast. We couldn't believe it. I have never been so happy over a cleaner. It doesn't even have a strong smell. I hardly ever write reviews but I had to on this one. One of the girls at work was having the same issue. I let her try it out and it worked for her. And it doesn't take much. I cleaned my entire window and didn't even go past the skinny part on the neck of the bottle." —LORIE LARANCE

    Promising review: "It was always a pain to reach down the side of my bed to reach my chargers, not to mention the wad of cables I’d have to sift through just to charge my phone. I finally searched for a solution and came across these. They’re great! They’re really easy to stick on and they stay in place. I haven’t had an issue of them falling off. Whenever I need to charge a device they’re right next to me, easy to reach and untangled. I definitely recommend!" —Nelis Perez

    34. 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

    35. A sandwich bag organizer to finally tame what I like to call the "nonsense drawer," aka where I have indiscriminately shoved all the the kitchen items I like to use a lot and accidentally created a whirlpool of half-empty bag boxes in a zillion sizes.

    36. A jewelry-cleaning stick with cleansing solution on a brush designed specifically to get in the nooks and crannies of your jewelry, so you can dig out all the grime that's accumulated over the years.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My engagement ring had gotten really dull over time. I hadn't even really realized until I came across a picture of when I first got it and noticed it didn't sparkle anymore at all. Which was what I had loved so much. I tried EVERYTHING. Soaps, soaking it in baking soda and a little vinegar and dish soap, rinsing it, etc and nothing was working. This cleaned it up immediately and completely restored it to its former super sparkly glory! It gets into all the little crevices and clears away all the fogginess. Will definitely purchase again and again!" —Sheila

    37. A TubShroom, a little gizmo you can stick in your shower drain to catch all your hair before it clogs up your pipes and becomes a living nightmare. The hair coils around it to make it even easier to remove, making it both handy *and* semi-horrifying!

    Promising review: "I have tried everything I could think of to cut back on hair clogs. I definitely became a pro at taking apart my drain to clean it which is a disgusting process. Between my long hair and having two dogs who shed in the bed when we aren't around there is a lot of hair of different lengths. This simple creation catches it all and is easy to get the hair off. The drain stopper still works for baths and the soft silicone is more gentle if a kid rubs it than the original screw on drain cover. Fantastic." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in five colors).

    38. Or if it's extremely too late for that, a drain snake you can funnel into your shower or sink drain that honestly works a little *too* well at unclogging hair, pulling it up in one (semi-horrifying) go.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: I have tried everything I could think of to unclog my tub drain, all the nasty chemicals, plunging, auger, and then I came across these plastic strips with evil teeth lol. They arrived today, didn't come with instructions, not that you really need any. I worked and worked and pulled out the horrific, nasty, slimy hair clog. It even pulled out a plastic razor cap (thank you teenage daughters). Mind you, that clog didn't come out in one full piece (gag), but in many pieces at first, the appetizers if you will. Finally, the main course reared its ugly head. Gross. These things work and work well. A little elbow grease and will power and voila. My tub drain completely drains now. I couldn't be happier!" —GaPeach

    Promising review: "We moved into our house a year ago and I’ve been on a quest to clean the grout next to the stove ever since then. I’ve tried everything — store products, DIY solutions, Pinterest recommendations, you name it. As a last resort I got this and holy cow! I left it on for three minutes as a spot test at first and I could already see a huge difference. I then did two more rounds letting it sit for five minutes each. The scent's not bad, it was fine if I had the window open, it was just being down close to it that got me. Seriously, stop looking and buy this." —Britney Phillips

    41. A set of bed bands that will lock your fitted sheets neatly into place so you can stop shoving the loose corners under your duvet whenever you're too tired to remake your whole bed in the morning.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a pillow top and pillow bottom queen-sized bed that is a little too small for king sheets and with queen sheets I have battled to keep the sheets from popping off. I have tried everything! I was about to try to customize some king sheets because it was so frustrating. Then I saw this product advertised on Facebook in one of those posts about the amazing products that people love. So I figured it was worth a try. It works. I was shocked. My sheets have not popped off once. I ordered this in February and it is May now – and they have not popped off once! They used to pop off EVERY .... SINGLE... NIGHT. To say this is life changing is not an exaggeration. Such a relief to be able to sleep through the night without ending up in rumpled sheets." —TinkerbellAPixie

    Promising review: "Wow! After YEARS of elbow grease and zero results, I tried this stuff before giving up and stripping the old caulking from the top of my shower. I’m so glad that I did, too! I mean, look at these results! Granted, it was on for about eight hours instead of six because I forgot about it, but the black mold/mildew just rinsed away — no scrubbing at all! STOKED! Super easy to use, too!" —Nice marmot!

    43. 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

    45. A slim organizer tray for your cutlery that will save you so much drawer space that you'll feel like you just opened an extra pocket in the time-space-fork continuum. No more jamming the messy drawer shut and praying it stays that way, y'all!

    Promising review: "I have a tiny kitchen with only three drawers, so space is at a premium. My silverware organizer took up almost all of one drawer, so this organizer is a godsend. You can fit quite a few spoons etc. in each slot. My beater attachments fit perfectly into the top two hollows. You NEED this if you have a small kitchen with few drawers!" —mialro

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    46. A shower curtain with POCKETS, because the utter delight of extra pockets should not be limited to surprise ones in dresses. Now you can store all your extra brushes, soaps, razors, and other odds and ends at eye level, instead of letting them perilously crash into the shower from the edges you propped them on before.

    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 $18.67.

    47. A purse organizer insert you can easily slide into any bag, from a tote to a designer dig, for instant pockets to organize your life. Another perk? If you're switching out your purse, all you have to do is slide the organizer out and pop it in with all your stuff raring to go.

    amazon.com

    Bonus: this also stops the inside liner of your purse from getting dirty if anything happens to explode (been there, cleaned the Panera butter packet out of that).

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

    Promising review: "These babies are pretty sturdy and they make putting notes in a book, or planner, or magazine, or whatever a complete breeze. I really like the ease of these and if you are creative you can make these work for any project. I use them in my textbooks to summarize my notes on a chapter. I also have short term memory loss after a car accident, I like reading novels, but can't remember things. So I use one of these as a bookmark, and take a few minutes to jot down key things from the book. I really, really, really like these and I am glad they exist." —Delaney

    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

    Promising review: "It was just what I needed for my messy and unorganized truck! I wanted something not too bulky, but just the right size to help me reorganize my trunk. This product did that for me. I was also concerned that it’ll move when I drove but luckily there is Velcro on the bottom that secures it in place while you drive, and sure enough it did just that! This product does not take up a lot of space and gives you the right amount of measure to place other things like groceries and a suitcase. I am completely satisfied and content with this product! I wish I had it all along!" —Sheneese
