    1. A sparkling-wine saver that will keep your bubblies bubbling so you can pop your prosecco any day of the week without worrying about wasting the leftovers. (Hermione is shaking.)

    Amazon / Via

    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: "It's like magic! Easy and works exactly as it claims. The bubbles multiply inside the bottle after it has gone flat. Marvelous darling!" —Heather T Davitt

    2. A set of Bottle Bright tablets so you can tackle all those stains on your bottles, mugs, and coffee makers faster than you can say, "Scourgify!"

    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

    3. A bunch of Miracle-Gro "food spikes" straight out of a Herbology course that can bring plants back from the brink of death, and then will continuously feed them for 30 to 60 days as a bonus.


    Promising review: "LOVE THESE! People will remark on your plants when you start using them. It sounds crazy but these make a huge difference if you haven't been feeding your plants — super easy to use — just stick them in your plants and forget about it. I put new ones in all my plants about once a month. They're like magic!! I give them away as gifts, they're that great. :)" —Vicki Huntman

    4. A memory foam seat cushion for your tushy so effective at relieving pressure from your tailbone it'll feel like someone cast a spell on your whole back.

    Promising review: "Works like magic. This cushion really helped my tailbone pain immediately. I had been sitting on a fabric, unsupportive couch for a few days and was even having trouble standing and walking. This helped almost immediately and I used it the entire time I was visiting. Since then, the pain has not returned." —Cassandra

    5. A tiny milk frother to transport you to Starbucks faster than a portkey in your kitchen — suddenly everything you drink will taste like it was lovingly handcrafted by a barista.


    It's also teensy for storing and cleans with a quick stream of hot running water! We stan a convenient appliance!!

    Promising review: "Admittedly I have a slight addiction to Starbucks Chai Tea Latte. With almost all the stores temporarily closed in my area, I looked on line for a DIY chai tea similar to SB. Found one but it was missing the delicious frothy latte topping. Soooo I bought the Milk Boss. For less than $16 on Amazon, this frother does some serious froth-ing! Since I don’t have a cappuccino maker and don’t want to crowd my countertops, this handy kitchen tool is magical — works well with heavy cream, half n half, etc. Incredible and quick results." —Elizabeth

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95 (available in 10 colors).

    6. A blister-preventing balm that basically magics an extra layer between your skin and your shoe, so you can stop chanting "beauty is pain" to yourself every time you have to break in a pair of boots, sandals, or heels.


    Promising review: "Really did work like magic. Took it on our trip to Disney World and it really did help prevent blisters. I didn't wear the most sensible shoes on the first day (it was Dapper day...) and when I felt my shoes start to rub I rubbed this on and instantly felt better and my shoes stopped rubbing. For a while, at least. I had to reapply a few times, but even family members borrowed it over the course of our trip. Highly recommend." —Laura Russell

    7. A produce-saver storage container designed to keep your fruits and veggies fresh way longer, so you can finally stop surrendering to the race against time when your produce goes bad faster than you can finish it.

    Promising review: "These work like magic! One way or another, I always used to end up with moldy produce in my fridge. Not anymore! I put two packs of strawberries in the larger container and they lasted for significantly longer than they would have in their regular store containers. I was completely amazed. I am definitely going to buy more sizes for the rest of my produce!" —Alyssa Nunez

    8. A set of dishwasher-cleaning tablets you can pop into a cycle with your dirty dishes to "poof!" all the extra grime and that funky smell you were low-key hoping would just go away on its own.

    Now you can host your get-togethers without that one helpful friend being like *GASP* when they see the state of your dishwasher.

    Promising review: "Magic! I started having some gross sewage-ish scent in my washing machine just because of the water in my area (I always leave the top open to air it out) and I noticed it started to make my clothes smell not so fresh. I popped one of these in the machine, ran a regular cycle on warm and bingo! No more grossness!" —JenM

    9. A Pet House candle with scents engineered to cast a spell over all those miscellaneous pet odors like litter boxes, dog bed, and all those lil' sprinkles of pee that you've just accepted as "eau de basement" since your pet came into your home.


    Promising review: "These are the BEST candles for homes with dogs. We have five dogs (yup, five) ranging from a 6 lb Chihuahua to a 95 lb Lab. All are rescues and two are seniors. Senior dogs tend to be a little more stinky. These candles are amazing. Even when not lit with the lid off they make the house smell like fresh cut flowers. Light just one and the whole upstairs smells like lilacs. It’s magic. There’s no chemical scent, it really smells like fresh flowers. I’m not a fan of labels on candles, and this one peels off really easily and leaves no sticky residue. You’re left with a beautiful, clean looking, fresh smelling, dog funk eliminating and even-burning candle." —Laurel

    Get it from Amazon for $21.95 (available in 16 scents).

    10. A roll-on migraine stick made with peppermint, spearmint, and lavender oils — basically a potion to help you soothe away that vague headache you sometimes get from sitting in one place for too long (Big Work From Home Mood, y'all).

    Promising review: "I hate swallowing pills and they often don't do anything when I have a migraine or headache coming on, so I gave the migraine stick a try. This stuff is MAGICAL. It smells nice, is easy to take everywhere (doesn't leak), easy to apply, and works like a CHARM. My headache/migraines are either gone within minutes or the pain is relieved enough that I can fall asleep and sleep it off. It's 100% worth it. Buy this!!!" —Madison J.

    11. A fast-acting carpet spot-removing spray that works like a charm on those miscellaneous stains from a previous tenant, or that not-so-miscellaneous time you spilled half of the red sauce from your leftover noodles facedown on the floor.

    Promising review: "I've been using this spot/stain remover for about 10 years now. It really is magic. I've removed numerous stains and spots with it over the years, and have only come across two stains that it would not remove. Unfortunately I don't know what the stains were caused by, so can't pass that along. I've used it on both carpet and upholstery and it has never changed the color of either. I would definitely test it on an inconspicuous area first though, as the directions state. And it's so easy to use: spray some on the stain, agitate it with your finger tips, then blot dry with a cloth or paper towel. You may have to let it sit on tougher stains for a few minutes before agitating and blotting, but I only had to do that once or twice. Definitely recommend." —Alex

    Get it from Amazon for $15.68.

    12. 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.

    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 $5.99.

    13. A bottle of Goo Gone for instantly banishing all those mysterious gooey, sticky, tough-to-scrub stains, from sticker residue to spilled glue to that fresh piece of gum you somehow against all odds got lodged in your hair.

    Promising review: "I would give a 10-star rating if there was one. Works like a charm. All of the annoying sticker marks in my house are gone!!!! The old home security stickers on the windows and doors, the price sticker marks on my beautiful pink hair brush, the old hook sticker mark in our bathroom from the old homeowner, you name it. They've all been there like forever and I seriously tried all means that I could, steam cleaner, electric scrubber, nothing worked until I got this magic Goo Gone. Now they are all gone and it didn't even take any hard work to get rid of all the goos!!!!" —Yingnan

    Get it from Amazon for $7.88.

    14. A rapid egg cooker so you'll finally have the power to eat your Sunday morning eggs any which way you want them, whether you want a good old-fashioned hard boil or like 'em a little runnier.


    I, a certified Lazy Individual (TM), own one of these babies and have faithfully used it every week for upward of two years. Perfectly medium-boiled eggs every time. I even bought one for my parents so I could spread its majesty to them as well (but also mostly so I could use it when I come to visit, if we're being real). Some reviews note that the alarm on it is a little loud, but the new models have significantly decreased the volume!

    Promising review: "This is honestly the best purchase I have ever made. Maybe you don't need it if you can boil eggs and have them come out right every time, but I just ... can't ... do it. I have checked for advice online. I have talked to my 92-year-old grandmother. I have done everything — the ice, etc. I just can't peel the darn things. Even if you normally can do it on your own, this would be a lot easier than boiling water, timing them, icing them, etc. This egg cooker is magical. It's MAGICAL. You don't even need to time them. It knows to do 12 minutes for three eggs and 17 for six eggs though I don't know how. But I have tested it. It's magic. Eggs peel perfectly every time. It's beautiful." —Janalge

    Get it from Amazon for $17.67 (available in five colors).

    15. An attachable wine aerator to wizard your Friday night glass of two-buck chuck into wine that tastes like it was hand-poured by a sommelier in the south of France who knows the rat from Ratatouille personally.


    Promising review: "A must have for any household. 7-Eleven wine has never tasted better! Traders Joe's two-buck chuck will never be the same. I thought it was gonna be all in my head but this straight Hogwarts magic. And it comes with two! SOLD!" —Analisa

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $13.95.

    16. A nail and cuticle oil that uses blend of jojoba oil, sweet almond oil and vitamin E to strengthen your nails — even the nails that are already grown. Spellbinding!!

    Promising review: "I didn't know you could repair your already grown nails. This is magic. Fixed my peeling nails in a few days. Love this product." —AmandaC

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50.

    17. A battery-operated depiller you can use to restore nice sweaters, bedding, and upholstery so instantly it'll feel like you cast a time spell back to the first day you bought 'em.,

    Promising review: "I’ve never written a review so quickly! Just got this bad boy in and out it to the test. I had some throw pillow covers that had gotten really pilled after two washes. I had tried the ol’ razor blade trick to no avail. Down but not out, enter this magical electronic defuzzer. My pillows look brand new!!!! It was easy to use and very impressive. I then took it to a dress I was working through the stages of grief to get to a point of throwing it out — and poof! No more dulling fuzzies!!!! The fabric looks lustrous and I honestly feel like it even hangs differently! As another reviewer mentioned, you do have to empty the little bin frequently — but whatever, not a big deal. I’ve already sent the link to my sister with instructions to do herself a favor and get one. Can not recommend this enough!" —Matt A.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in five colors).

    18. A jar of Aztec healing clay masks for acne that essentially suck the gunk out of your pores (and pre-existing acne) like an enchanted vacuum. It doesn't just help with the acne you already have — it helps to prevent acne in the future, making it less of a quick fix and more of an actual solution.

    People in the reviews are also singing its praises for reducing the size of their pores! Many of them advise mixing the mask with apple cider vinegar for best results.

    Promising review: "I woke up with six tiny pimples on my right cheek this morning. This was delivered today so I decided to give it a try. Mixed with water, left on for 10-15 minutes. The pimples are gone. I’ve never bought a product that has had such immediate results. This is magic. I can’t believe I waited so long to buy it." —Samantha Jensen

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    19. A shampoo scalp massager you can use in the shower to massage and exfoliate your scalp, magicking the dandruff from your scalp and making showers feel 800 times more decadent than they have any right to be.

    Promising review: "Finally found something that helps control my dermatitis. When I received it, I couldn’t see how this was going to ‘massage my scalp’ without ripping my hair out. It is magic when used with shampoo. You feel gentle friction to your scalp with no hair pulling. I do small circles everyday: my dandruff is gone. It rinses right off in the shower/bath. I feel this is an essential along with a good tar/tea tree shampoo. If you have issues with dandruff I highly recommend." —Brandi Schlembach

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98 (available in three colors).

    20. A pair of high-waisted performance leggings that reviewers swear by for being breathable, comfortable, *and* passing the ever-important squat test — truly a magical triad more powerful than the Deathly Hallows themselves.,

    Promising review: "I love these! I’m always skeptical when ordering pants and clothing online but this was a hit! My thigh circumference has changed a bit more than I’d like to admit lately. The material integrity is superior, the fit is magical on my bottom. They don’t slip or slide to reveal my goodies and I am grateful! They are also affordable. My favorite leggings for years have been Zella and Victoria’s Secret. I love the right hold of the pants and would wait for the VS sales to snatch them up. What bothered me the most was the cover stitching would constantly fail me. Holes in the seams on basically every pair. I have not had this issue at all with these leggings. They now and forever will hold my heart and my pocketbook!" —Takiyah Malaika

    Get a pair from Amazon for $21.95+ (available in five colors and sizes XS-3XL).

    21. A rechargeable electric razor with hair removing sorcery perfect for painlessly dealing with peach fuzz, nose hair, and other fine hair that you might not feel comfy charging in on with a full blown razor (I'm looking @ you, unibrow trying to thrive on my face).,

    I've had one of these for over a year now, and it has saved me soooo much money in lip- and eyebrow-waxing. I have super sensitive skin (every time I get something waxed the area turns into a five-alarm fire), but this little buzzy bb takes care of it without way faster, way cheaper, and with zero drama to boot.

    Promising review: "I've seen ads for this type of thing everywhere and I always was worried it was a scam. It seemed almost too good to be true; especially for such a low price. But boy was I wrong! I finally gave in and ordered and I am LOVING it. It's basically like a razor that cuts super close to the skin so that peach fuzz or whatever you're trying to get rid of isn't noticeable. It doesn't scrape through, you don't get razor bumps, and the blades are hidden. It's pretty much a magic wand. Plus, the USB charger makes it super portable and it comes with a cute little velvety bag. As far as cleaning, it's really easy and efficient. They give you a little brush that lets you clean it out in two seconds flat." —Daria Wilcox

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

    22. A ridiculously popular "cat dancer" toy so both you and your furry bud can break a sweat indoors chasing after it — and, of course, chronicle the absurd shenanigans for Instagram. WWCD, friends. (What Would Crookshanks Do?),

    In fact, if you are looking for an immediate LOL, please head straight to the review images of this little gizmo — pages and pages of kitty cats losing their marbles. It is goodness and absurdity and light.

    Promising review: "Our cat doesn't care about most toys. We have a screeching bird on a string plushie toy, and she will, at best, half-heartedly lope after it for 1-2 minutes at a time before getting bores. She doesn't care about anything that buzzes, squeaks, rattles, or crinkles. This toy was suggested when I bought another cat produce, and I thought why not? Especially for the price? Well, it's MAGICAL. I have no idea how or why it works — it does seem to mimic the movement of an insect, which she loves to chase. She LEAPS and runs for this toy, which she never does. In short: for a price like this, you absolutely have to buy it." —Emily Blair

    Get it from Amazon for $2.09.

    23. A power scrubber brush you can attach to a drill to take so much of the effort out of cleaning caked-on grime and hard water stains you'll feel like a legit wizard.

    Promising review: "We originally purchased this to scrub our tile floors and grout in the bathrooms. We have a dog that slobbers everywhere and the only way to clean it is to use elbow grease. This thing is magical! We’ve used it on the walls (no paint removed), based boards, door jams and doors, windows, floors, and cabinets. Just dip it into warm soapy water and go to town! Recommending this to all our friends. Cuts cleaning time in half!" —A. Bos

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in six colors).

    24. A mini waffle maker that lets you make so many magical dishes your taste buds might weep — if you're waffling on the waffles, you can also use it for hash browns, paninis, biscuits, and even (gasp) PIZZA. If you can dream it, you can mini waffle it.


    Promising review: "This thing is MAGIC! I purchased because of the copious other reviews and BuzzFeed articles that sang praises about it. I have zero regrets about this purchase. I love being able to make Eggo-sized protein waffles in less than five minutes in the morning. I’ve used it to reheat small sandwiches, make mini quesadillas, and make waffle sandwiches. It’s easy to clean and there aren’t any fancy bells and whistles to learn — you just plug it in, wait for the light to turn on, pour in your batter, close and wait for the light to turn off." —Peachy Kween

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in red and nine other non-heart-shaped colors).

    25. A microwave pasta maker so convenient for making *chef's kiss* perfect pasta with *chef's laziness* little effort that it'll feel like witchcraft.


    For the pasta lovers out there, here are some hearty five-ingredient pasta recipes to give a try, like pasta bolognese and creamy sausage and tortellini soup. Pro-tip: this microwave pasta maker works on lasagna and ravioli, too!

    Promising review: "I've had this thing for less than twelve hours and I've used it three times ... IT'S MAGICAL. I eat a lot of pasta — like, A LOT. I probably eat pasta at least seven times a week; I love pasta! Boiling water is a pain and I've always hated having to wash the big pasta pan afterwards. Well this Fasta Pasta puts that to an end. Now all I have to do is measure my pasta, fill to the water line, and wait. It's kind of like Ronco's 'set it and forget it.'" —Kate Slater

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    26. A HyperChiller that will transform your piping hot coffee into glorious iced coffee in a literal minute — same goes for that rosé you were too lazy to put in the fridge. Presto, rosé-o.


    Promising review: "I've struggled with making iced coffee at home until now — the Hyperchiller is magic. I can't believe how quickly my coffee becomes cold with zero dilution. I was also surprised on how much coffee it held, it's perfect." —Brian Kelly

    Get it from Amazon for $24.97.

    27. A jewelry-cleaning stick with cleansing solution on a brush that's designed specifically to get in the grimy nooks and crannies of your rings with a clean that's both fast *and* long-lasting, so your rings can all get that spellbinding ~gleam~.,

    Promising review: "Wowww! This little thing is so nifty! I read the reviews and looked over the photos but still was skeptical of how well it’d work, but it works like magic! I hadn’t realized how much my diamond has dulled from daily wear and use but my ring looks brand new! I love this little stick and how affordable it is! Definitely give this a try!" —Lizzie

    Get it from Amazon for $7.90.

    28. A super-soft Makeup Eraser that wipes makeup right off your face with nothing but water and a gentle scrub — and, more importantly, has a microfiber blend specifically designed to clear gunk from your pores. It's basically as close as you can get to a Magic Eraser for your face.


    It's got two sides — one that can wipe off all your makeup with water and a light scrubbing, and another that exfoliates your skin. Plus, all you have to do when you're done using it is wet it and hang it up to dry! No more wasting money on icky washcloths that hurt your skin!!! I can hear your pores singing from here.

    Promising review: "I am amazed by this product. I would even say that this is life-altering! I have not had to buy makeup remover in three months and don't believe I will ever have to again! When I used makeup remover, I felt like I could never get all of my makeup off and I had to rub my eyes quite a bit to get it off. Even after a lot of rubbing when using makeup remover I still would wake up the next morning with makeup residue from the previous day and I never felt I could completely get my makeup off. With makeup eraser, there is not one bit of makeup left!! It is like magic!! Make sure you follow directions, you have to use warm water and use the correct side!" —Sprklbuz

    29. A detangling brush with an easy-to-hold handle that's so effective on all hair types that it's amassed over 4,000 five-star reviews on Amazon — people swear by it for detangling fast without pulling and damaging hair, so your locks can maintain that magical glow over time.

    It also works on wet *and* dry hair, so you don't have to time out your brushing.

    Promising review: "So I have very long hair that gets tangled VERY VERY fast. I spent sooo much money getting brushes and products to keep my hair smooth and nothing seem to work. This brush was magic. I saw another that looked the same at a store and I bought it thinking I will have a spare but nope, it didn't work like this one. I love it. The best $10 I spent on my hair." —Ale D

    Get it from Amazon for $11.88 (available in four colors).

    30. A pair of lacy thigh bands that'll stay in place all through the warm weather months, so you don't have to worry about that dreaded thigh chafe that comes with all your charming dresses., Amazon

    I own a pair of these, and unlike me showing off in aforementioned dresses, these STAY PUT. There are little grippers on them that lock them in place, but are gentle enough that you don't even notice 'em.

    Promising review: "These changed my life. I used to come home from events/work/errands with red, bumpy, hot to the touch and very painful inner thighs. Sometimes they would BLEED. No creams or powders were working for me. I tried it all. I gave in and got these beauties and I could not BELIEVE the relief I felt. The first time I wore them was to an outdoor wedding in 90 degree, humid weather. These puppies did. not. budge. It was like magic. No friction at all. I wear them multiple times a week, hand wash them and air dry. They do make a quiet 'swish swish' sound when you walk but I promise, nobody else can tell. Take the plunge, measure your thigh and get you some of these!" —Rebekah Lockwood

    31. A "wine wand" to remove sulfates and histamines from your beloved Pinots in as little as three minutes, potentially sparing you from migraines and mid-week hangovers. And as we all know, the wand chooses the wine-drinker.


    Promising review: "These wine wands are magical! I suffer from really bad migraines, and unfortunately wine has always been a trigger for me. Even a half a glass would put me over the edge. Since I started using the wands, though, I have enjoyed two glasses at a time on numerous occasions without a single headache! I never thought I’d be able to have wine again, but these wands have returned the enjoyment to the experience!" —Bethany

    32. A set of satin pillowcases that create less friction for your hair, so you can wake up with hair so magically untangled and fresh that your dry shampoo will wonder if you moved away.


    Promising review: "This pillowcase is magic. I’ve never had a pillowcase that doesn’t make my hair a mess when I wake up. I woke up today with my hair looking exactly the same, neat and nice. And the pillowcase makes it really comfy to sleep on." —Taliese P.

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $12.99 (available in seven colors and three sizes).

    33. A mold and mildew removal gel you can leave on the offending spots for six hours then wipe away like nothing nefarious ever grew there in the first place, all without even opening a spell book.


    Promising review: "I have used it all. From bleach, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, clr and everything else to get rid of the mold/mildew from my shower grout and nothing ever really worked. THIS THING REALLY REALLY WORKS! Don't hesitate just add to cart and buy it. It's so amazing and magical. My shower now looks brand new and extra clean with my pure white caulk. So easy to use to just apply and rinse. No elbow grease required." —B. Kim

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    34. An Instant Pot that will magic you into a pro-level cook just by adding some ingredients and pressing a button, letting you whip up everything from soups to meat dishes to eggs to rice to — wait for it — CAKE.

    If you haven't used an Instant Pot to make cake yet, a delicious PSA: You can follow that dream with this bundt cake pan you can get that fits into a six-quart Instant Pot and this Bundt cake Instant Pot recipe from someone doing the good work.

    Promising review: "Everyone should have this in their kitchen! I was hesitant.. is it that great? Do I really need this if I have a crockpot? Space? After reading reviews and hearing my friends rave about theirs, I finally was able to order one (because they’re sold out everywhere)... and let me just say it’s been life-changing. I’m able to spend less time prepping, and put whatever sounds good in this thing. Is this too good to be true? Yes, probably so. If I told you unicorns existed you wouldn’t believe me — but the Instant Pot is a unicorn. Truly magical! Everything is cooked to perfection in under and hour, and isn’t rubbery, tough or tasteless!! That’s right! Even better, it takes less than 15 minutes for most thawed meat.. So far, for quick easy nights, I like adding whatever meat (usually thawed chicken breasts), a flavorful sauce or dressing, with 1/2 cup water and viola! Even better when you throw fresh broccoli (or any veggie) in at the end and sauté for 4 minutes." —Chrissy

    Get it from Amazon for $79.

    35. A squishy universal dust cleaner that will get into all your space's nooks and crannies, like keyboards and A/C units and the vents in the back of your printer. Abracadabra, dust!!


    Promising review: "I'm both cheap and lazy, this leads me to purchase a lot of used electronics such as old laptops. I didn't much feel like taking the keyboards off the laptops that I purchased (lazy) for cleaning so I figured, 'hmmmm, sticky goo to get in the cracks makes sense.' This product was awesome, it takes a hot minute to kinda get the spread, flatten, and massage motion down to best get the ick off the keyboard, but after that the magic began. The gross residue started coming up and, to my surprise, it started pulling up hidden hairballs that had been long hidden in the depths of the keyboard. I'm thrilled with the result and totally recommend picking it up if you want a low-tech cleaning option." —sfjones86

    36. An all-purpose car upholstery cleaner so you can go to town on the interior of your car and lift up all the stains in one deeply satisfying, magical go.

    Promising review: "I tried everything to get my car mats clean, they have hexagonal wells that look cool but collect all kinds of crud. Nothing I tried would get all the stuff out. The advertising on this seemed too good to be true, but the reviews seem to support the hype. I'm here to tell you this stuff is magic. My mats look like they are brand-new. I didn't really scrub or brush them at all — I rinsed them down then sprayed this stuff on and then used a brush to just spread the solution evenly into all the wells. Let sit for 15 minutes, then rinsed. A miracle." —anthony

    37. A detergent booster that essentially supercharges a run of your dishwasher to get rid of those caked-on hard water mug stains — bippity boppity (detergent) boost!

    Promising review: "We were having problems with our dishes coming out of the dishwasher dirtier than they went in. Hard water left deposits and scum all over everything, and the dishes would be soaking wet. This miracle powder has made all our dishes come out totally dry, shiny, and smooth. It's like magic." —Eric Dietrich

    38. A laundry stain remover with enzymes to help you, in one mere wash, mystically vanish away the white whale of all clothing stains: that discolored dried sweat and deodorant residue in your armpits.

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

    Promising review: "This thing is magic. I tried on few cloths that had literally years old stains of food, turmeric, coffee and oil. These cloths had already gone through several hot dry cycles in drier and I was told that once cloths go through hot cycle in dried they set in and never came off. With this, most did come off! What didn’t come off completely got too faded to be noticed and I haven’t even tried second cycle on them. The best thing is that it did not affect colors on the shirts." —Shital Shah

    39. A carpet cleaning solution that will dig in so immediately and so deep that nobody will ever guess your dog went on a peeing spree that one time you dared to come home smelling like someone else's dog.

    Promising review: "Carpet Miracle is the absolute best product I have ever used! I have six kids, three dogs, and two cats. You can't even believe the messes that have happened in my house. But this product is basically magic. One of my kids spilled black acrylic paint on my two-weeks-brand-new carpet last year and carpet miracle got it completely out. There's not even a shadow left. I also use a cap full in stinky loads of laundry. It gets the smell out of anything! And there hasn't been a stain yet that this product hasn't defeated." —Lyndsey

    40. A drain snake you can funnel into your shower drain that honestly works a little *too* well at unclogging hair. Like the old wisdom says...all magic comes with a price 😱.


    Promising review: "These really did the trick. The drain in our shower is the WORST. It's not removable or easy to get a snake down, so I was worried about how these would work. Think of like dorm shower drains. That's what ours is like, and it's set into the floor of our shower. These snakes are small enough to get down the rather small holes but magical enough to really pull all of the built up hair that was collecting down there. Very gross honestly. But definitely worth it because now I can be in the shower more than five minutes before the water fills to the top of the 1-2 inch lip in our stand-up shower. A super great deal for a great product." —Elyse Police

    41. An avocado slicer for taking care of those pesky pits and giving you slices so perfectly portioned you'll start calling yourself an Avocado Wizard.

    This three-in-one tool can split an avocado with its pointy tip, remove the pit with its center, and make perfectly even slices with the bottom — a much safer alternative to using a regular knife and potential falling prey to the dreaded "avocado hand."

    Promising review: "This avocado slicer is magical. You will be the avocado and/or guacamole queen thanks to this tool. Slice 10 avocados for a family-sized guacamole dish? No problem. Done in two minutes. I'm just disappointed I didn't order it years ago." —K

    42. A silicone muffin mold so versatile it might legitimately be witchcraft — this can cook eggs, pastries, and muffins without a ton of nonstick prep, and with ridiculously easy cleanup., Via

    Promising review: "I don't have any previous experience with silicone muffin pans, so I don't have anything to compare it to. For me, this product exceeded my expectations. I use it to cook egg bites for a quick take away breakfast. My old nonstick muffin tin had the eggs sticking to it no matter what I did. This one releases them without the use of any sort of tool. I just press on one side and the egg bite rotates up so I can grab it. Like magic. I do oil it down occasionally as was recommended." —Justin D. Boggs
