    43 Products For All Those Little Problems You've Been Low-Key Ignoring

    It's 2021 and *high* time we have a solution for wearing glasses and lipstick with face masks.

    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. A 3D mouth bracket you can clip to the inside of your face mask to keep you from breathing in fabric, keep pressure off your nose, and even prevent your lipstick from getting smudged.

    Promising review: "Love this item. As a healthcare worker who had to wear glasses all the time, the use of this device in between the layers of my masks certainly prevent my glasses from fogging up. It also helps to keep the pressure off my nose. Helps to reduce nasal skin irritation from prolonged wear off the masks at work and in the community. Highly recommend this item. Great price." —RC

    2. 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.

    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

    Get a set from Amazon for $5.99.

    3. A bottle of Drop It, a natural wine sulfate and tannin remover that works its magic on your glass in just 20 seconds, so you can stop telling yourself that it's just a "headache" when, in fact, you are an adult hungover from one glass of two-buck Chuck.

    Reviewer image of glass of red wine with a bottle of Drop It, along with a caption explaining that it's been working

    It's also a lot more cost-effective and environmentally-friendly than wine wands or other competitors — a single bottle of this can be used to treat up to 55 glasses of wine, as opposed to wands that can only do a few glasses each before they get tossed. Drop It recommends 1-2 drops for each glass of white wine, 2-3 for a glass of red, and 7-9 if you're treating the whole bottle at once. Once it's in the glass, swirl lightly for 20 seconds, and you should be raring to go!

    Promising review: "For many years, I have been that friend that always says 'no thanks, I can't drink wine.' Even one small small glass would give me the worst migraine. So I gave up. Several weeks ago, I happened across an ad for Drop It and thought I might as well give it a shot. I took a big risk the day it arrived and had two huge glasses of red wine that I knew would give me a massive migraine the next day. It just so happened I had a midterm that next morning too — so the stakes were high. I woke up feeling fantastic. Since then I have repeated the experiment (to make sure it wasn't a fluke) and found that no matter how much wine I drink, as long as I use the drops, I don't have a migraine the next day. I'm so pleased to have found something that makes wine drinking possible and enjoyable again! I have nothing but great things to say about the product. It's easy to use and very discreet. I visited some friends last week and we spent a few hours at a wine bar. It was easy to add my drops. I took a small taste of the wine before adding the drops and found that it did not alter the taste at all. Thanks for a great product and a great buying experience. I will be back for more." —Mackenzie

    4. A foot file to remove calluses and hard or cracked skin that your feet might have just gotten used to by now. All this takes is some gentle, pain-free rubbing, which you can do whether your feet are dry or wet at the time.

    Promising review: "AMAZING!!! Seriously beyond impressed with this product. I've never had dry or cracked heels until recently and I've tried everything I could find to get rid of them! This is all you need!!! Just check out the 'before' and 'after.' I literally opened the box and did this in less than a minute ! I'll never use anything else! Even better than professional pedicures!!!" —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $8.95.

    5. A headband with lil' kitty ears way more effective at holding your hair in place while you wash your face than your usual tried and true practice of attempting to shove it into your bra straps to stay dry.,

    Promising review: "I'M SO HAPPY WITH THIS HEADBAND!!! I'm new to the skin care game and I've been trying to make myself get into a regimen. But I have really long hair and I hate tying it up because of the creasing, and my other headbands fall down/don't hold my hair back/start to hurt after a while (the workout headbands especially don't hold back my bangs because they are essentially one pice of rubber band). This headband is cheap, cute, stays in place, doesn't damage your hair, is thick enough to keep bangs/long hair out of your face and DOESN'T HURT ... like literally one of the best things I have bought from Amazon." —Taylor

    Get it from Amazon for $6.88.

    6. A colorful beaded face mask chain you can use when you're in the car between errands or eating outside at a picnic and want to keep your mask on your person instead of awkwardly stuffing it into a pocket or bag.

    Firefly Feeling Bright/Etsy

    Firefly Feeling Bright is a Florida-based Etsy shop established in 2019 that specializes in artisanal jewelry.

    Promising review: "Nice quality, good chain length and fun colors! Glad I purchased two (one for my home and one I keep in my car)." —dianecely

    Get it from Firefly Feeling Bright on Etsy for $7 (psst — this shop offers ✨free shipping!✨).

    7. A popular streak-free anti-fog spray you can quickly apply to eyeglasses, sunglasses, and face shields to prevent them from fogging up while you're wearing a mask instead of adjusting them every few minutes and hoping for the best.,

    A heads up that this works *super* well for some reviewers, but not all — note that this is meant for non antireflective-coated lenses, and the instructions for use are very specific. To apply, spray a small amount on both sides of your lenses, and use your fingers to rub it across the whole area. Let it sit for a full minute, then wipe with a dry soft cloth. Once they're fully dry, you should be raring to go!

    Promising review: "I have tried everything to keep my glasses from fogging with my mask and this product is by far the best. I'm sorry I waited so long to purchase it. I live in the Florida Keys and do a lot of diving and snorkeling and it works fabulous for my dive mask also. I would highly recommend Optix 55 fog gone. Great price, also I think this bottle will last a very long time." —Bebe

    Get it from Amazon for $10.55.

    8. A set of affordable, highly popular (seriously, these have over 80,000 popular reviews) wireless Bluetooth earbuds so you can listen to music during your workday *without* your ears feeling like they've been beaten up. These come equipped with several sizes of earbuds so you can get your perfect, painless fit.

    Reviewer image of two black earbuds next to their charging case

    These come with a wireless charging case that provides up to 14 hours of charge (with the earbuds able to play for 4+ hours with each full charge). The earbuds are also sweatproof and waterproof so you can use them during workouts or runs or even in the shower, and have a built-in mic so you can chat on the phone. Psst — these are also a great option for going outside in a mask, since they don't have wires that'll get tangled in the mask straps.

    Promising review: "The earbuds worked seamlessly and well out of the box. I use them while hiking the hills with my dogs and when working at my desk – I can still hear outside noises when needed for safety, but can listen to music without disturbing others. The earbuds are comfortable even during exercise, and they fit securely. Using the earbuds as a headset with my cellphone is easy as well. I do have to experiment with how they handle the Google assistant. The audio quality is at least stereo hi-fi, and the earbuds paired easily with both my phone and laptop. Wireless charging and having a large backup power source for the phone are terrific features." –Jawpar

    Get it from Amazon $29.99 (available in five colors).

    9. A set of bed bands that will lock your fitted sheets neatly into place so you'll no longer wake up every morning with them all roughed up like you got into a fight with them in your sleep.

    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

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $12.99.

    10. A suuuper popular Bio-Oil made with vitamins A and E, chamomile, and lavender — you may recognize it as a product a lot of people use to help fade scars (both old and new)and help moisturize without affecting your pores, but a lot of people are using it during the pandemic to soothe dry and cracked skin from hand-washing and sanitizing.

    FWIW re: scars, though, this stuff really works. I had thyroid surgery a few years ago and Bio-Oil took me from looking like I'd stumbled out of the Red Wedding to virtually no detectable scar within a few months. All I did was apply it once in the morning and once at night.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my scars but because of the current COVID-19 crisis I have been washing my hands so much that they are painfully dry. Hand cream hasn't helped enough so I decided to use the Bio-Oil on them and even after the first application they felt SO much better! I'm glad I bought the big bottle!" —L. Strand

    Get it from Amazon for $8.89 (available in three sizes).

    11. A produce saver storage container designed with special vents to keep your fruits and veggies fresh longer, so you can take your sweet time going through this week's grocery haul without settling for soggy berries just to avoid waste.

    Promising review: "LOVE LOVE LOVE these! We buy only organic produce which does not tend to last very long and when you pay as much as we do for organic you don't want it going bad so fast. My favorite thing about these is that it keeps my lettuce crisp and fresh for weeks not days. I've been able to buy bunches of lettuce and keep them in the fridge for several weeks. I keep the second container for strawberries, asparagus, blueberries, etc. and it keeps them fresh for way longer now. Not only that but it prevents them from molding after only a few days so I'm not worried about having to eat my strawberries in two days now. Will definitely be buying more in the future. Totally worth every penny and super easy to wash and dry." —Jessica

    Get it from Amazon for $10.69 (available in multiple sizes and sets).

    12. A ring size adjuster for loose rings, so you're no longer *that* person crawling around the floor of your apartment building every time your ring slides off.

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    As you can see, this is my own human hand pictured above. I'm obsessed with jewelry retailer Local Eclectic, but my ring finger is between two of their sizes — enter this plastic coil, which made up the size difference in the hottest second.

    Promising review: "I’ve been holding off on getting my ring resized and decided to do something temporary till then. These are perfect! They came with a bunch of different sizes, and you only use a small amount of the one you need. If I end up needing it tighter again, I can swap it out for a larger coil. They are really easy to put on, and I hardly feel it at all on my finger. I’m not sure how long they will last because I haven’t had it for long, but it comes with enough extra that it would be easy to swap out if they don’t hold up." —Charet

    Get a 12-pack in two sizes from Amazon for $8.49.

    13. A pretty pastel mug warmer to keep your tea and coffee warm for you before it yet again gets lost in the time-space-WFH continuum.


    I got one of these for my mom for Christmas (her entire kitchen is pink, it is a Big Mood) and can confirm it is QUITE beautiful in person.

    Promising review: "I researched so many coffee warmers and am so glad I decided on this one. It definitely keeps my coffee hot, no matter how long it takes me to drink it. I also like that it has three settings. As you drink down your coffee, you can lower the heat because it keeps the coffee very hot. I like it so much I ordered a second one for another part of the house." —hottytoddy

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in six colors).

    14. A backseat hook perfect for purses and groceries, so you don't have to drive 10 miles under the speed limit to stop your seltzers from flying into your poor unsuspecting fruit every time you drive back from the grocery.

    Purse hooked to the back of a car seat with installed beige hook

    Promising review: "I thought this might be one of the silly things I sometimes fall for. Nope. These are awesome. I keep one on the driver's side headrest and the other on the passenger side. I prefer to use the passenger one, because I can reach into my purse from the drivers seat, but if I've got extra people in the car, it's nice to have the flexibility to keep my purse on either side. Also, they fit very snugly and are tough. My purse easily weighs 20 pounds, and it never looks like they're strained." —Kendra

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $9.99 (also available in black).

    15. A set of itty bitty dermaplaning razors you can use to take care of those lil' unibrow hairs that keep dodging your tweezers or work whatever face fuzzies you might want to take care of in a gentle way instead of worrying about making a waxing appointment.


    This tool also helps soften skin by gently exfoliating as you use it!

    Promising review: "I just got this delivered today, so I decided to test it. I'm a woman with very dark and coarse hair, so my peach fuzz is a little more prominent than normal, and I'll admit that I do have a unibrow that I try to shave. I've tried everything from a facial blade that never really did much of anything, to a regular old razor, and then finally an electric razor. None of them did what this thing does. My electric razor cuts about half of the growth of the hair, and this razor completely eliminated it. I can't even feel any residual hair that's usually left when I shave, only skin. Plus the built in exfoliation when in use is a great addition; no need for any sort of lotion or shaving cream (although you may want to use right after a shower or get the area wet to weaken the follicles, just as you would any other sort of razor before shaving, and also to avoid razor burn). I hadn't really intended on this happening, but I actually procrastinated on shaving my unibrow this time around and this is going to sound so odd but I'm glad that I did because it completely eliminated the existence of my unibrow." —Natalie Clark

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $4.99.

    16. A micro-mitt for your fingers perfect for when you need to get teensy things out of hot spaces like air fryers, the microwave, or the toaster (I'm looking DIRECTLY at you, every English muffin I have ever consumed).

    Get it from The Tiny Craft Closet on Etsy for $6 (available in 50 prints).

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 $9.99.

    18. *Aaaand* a 3D-printed face mask air vent hook so you'll always have a quick place to stash backup masks without losing them to the abyss of your car.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.95.

    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 and gross smells you've been hoping would go away on their own.

    Promising review: "This stuff really cleans my sink and disposal of the foul odor that sometimes develops. I've tried everything to get rid of the smell from the garbage disposal: Vinegar, bleach, ice, various other products, baking soda, baking soda with vinegar, boiling water...nothing seemed to get rid of the smell for long, but this stuff does. I like it so much that I ordered it online because I couldn't find it again at the grocery store." —Carol L. Hill

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $4.10.

    21. A roll-on migraine stick made with peppermint, spearmint, and lavender oils that a ton of people swear by to take the edge off their headaches. This > white knuckling it through your day like the on-fire "this is fine" dog.

    Promising review: "This stuff is my go-to fix when I feel a migraine coming on. I suffer from sinus headaches and migraines usually once or twice a week. This product I put on each temple, under my nose and on my wrists when I feel the pressure starting and it cuts the pain to a minimum. It seems to stop the worst pain before it has a chance to start. Thank you for a great product! I will buy again and again!" —Brenton1985

    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.

    Promising review: "I’ve had this for a few months now and I use it all the time! It heats up so fast and steams the fabric within seconds! I normally use this just on my blouses before I go to work or my boyfriend's pants/suit so no heavy materials. Then I was doing a large clean and in my room, I have canvas that comes down to create a closet. I tied it up and had let it down and it was endless wrinkles! I read a review it didn’t work on heavy material but figured I would try it. It cleared them right up!! I have never been so impressed with something I have purchased!" —Emily

    23. A durable set of space-saving vacuum storage bags so you can finally store all your extra bedding and winter clothes in your closet instead of fruitlessly shoving them back in every time they topple off the top shelf onto the floor.

    Vaccuum sealed clothes next to four large crates they used to be in, now half the size

    Promising review: "THESE ARE LIFE-CHANGING. The package came quick to my door with five storage bags. They even give you a hand pump to use in case you're taking the bags camping or just don't have a vacuum handy. I tested the pump to see how well it works — perfect! HOLY COW I have half my closet back! I would have more room but I left out a few blankets we regularly use. I used three bags to store ALL THE items including three large pillows and several thick blankets and comforters. I will most definitely be buying more, these are fantastic!!!" —Knastay

    24. Tide Free & Gentle Liquid Laundry Detergent, an unscented, hypoallergenic version for anyone who has been trying to power through sensitivity to strong smell for the sake of clean clothing — this will give you the same fresh feeling without any of the aggressive "HERE IS A TROPICAL BREEZE IN YOUR NOSTRIL" of its competitors.

    Bottle of Tide free and gentle with a handle on the side and measuring cup on top

    Promising review: "First time buying this brand for the free and gentle. I am allergic to dyes and perfume and any scented Items. I have washed my clothes several times, since I purchased it and all I can say is wow. I don’t itch or break out in hives. Totally recommend this product if you have skin allergies or just allergies in general." —Arizmendi

    Promising review: "I went on my first walk in years without pain the second day of trying these socks! I had almost given up trying to relieve the intense burning/soreness due to my plantar fasciitis, but I decided to try one last product. These socks have already changed my life and have allowed me to start working out again! Highly recommend." —Emily

    Get a pair from Amazon for $13.95 (available in four sizes and nine colors).

    26. 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've just sort of learned to live with.

    Promising review: "We have very hard water in this area, and though my dishwasher is supposed to be self-cleaning when you use the right detergent (which I have been), it's been getting gunkier and gunkier and a couple of months ago the rinse aid dispenser stopped filling properly. When I looked that up, the online advice said that can happen if it gets too dirty and gave advice on running the dishwasher with vinegar and other tricks. But I saw this and, being pleased with Affresh's machine cleaners I'd used on my clothes washer, decided to try it. It worked AMAZINGLY, in ONE try. My rinse aid dispenser immediately started working good as new again, and my dishwasher is the cleanest it's been since we got it! Love it!" —Mouriana

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $11.99.

    27. A self-grooming cat toy so your cat can have a time ~feeling themselves~ and you can have an even better time putting off vacuuming for another week.,

    You can easily mount this toy to a flat wall or a corner using the adhesive strips included, and even comes with a little bit of catnip you can put in it to initially attract 'em.

    Promising review: "My cat Gambino Bambino would let you brush him bald!!! He loves to be groomed and comes running whenever the brush comes out. Though we love to accommodate, I know he wanted more. He was constantly rubbing his cheeks and ears on the corner of our walls to get even more scratching. I finally came across this product and knew he would love it! It took a little convincing but once he got a hang of it he’s been loving it! We have one in the living room, one in the kitchen, one at the top of the stairs and one in the guest room! He is having a great time!!! Very easy to put together and place on the wall." —T. Mangiacarina

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    28. A bottle of nail and cuticle repair oil that you simply brush on your nail beds once a day to condition and strengthen all those brittle spots and hangnails you keep maneuvering around, leaving you with thick, healthy nails and nail beds in weeks.

    A before image of a reviewer's brittle nails and an after image of them much heaithier

    Promising review: "It's a miracle! I had peeling, weak nails for years. Tried everything. A friend recommended a nail strengthener they saw on QVC. It was quite pricey and I wanted to make sure it was worth it so I read the reviews. One of the comments said just buy Solar Oil. Since it was much more affordable than the QVC stuff, I tried it. I bought it in February. This size bottle lasted a bit more than a month religiously applying it two to three times a day. I was really seeing great improvement so I bought another bottle in late March. By May, all the peeling had grown out and my nails were getting stronger every day. I then bought the big 4-ounce refill bottle because I never want to run out of it again! Cannot recommend this stuff enough!" —Diana

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50.

    29. A chic, dimmable sconce you can use next to a full-length mirror to get actual! decent! lighting!! and appreciate your whole look instead of squinting at the 25% off yourself you can see in the well-lit bathroom mirror.

    A metal wall sconce with four small lights at the end of two mismatched metal lines installed on a wall next to a mirror

    The dimmability of these also makes them great for getting just the right amount of lighting depending on the time of day (and, uh, if we're being honest with ourselves, the angles of our unrepentant mirror selfies).

    Promising review: "Even my daughter, the design major thought that these sconces were a GREAT choice. Love them!" —Carla

    Get it from AllModern for $130 (originally $142.30).

    30. A TubShroom you can stick in your shower drain to catch all your hair before you need a plumber to un-clog it, thereby saving you from the worst task imaginable: making a phone call.

    Reviewer holding up tube shaped stopper with hair coiled around it

    Promising review: "I hardly ever write reviews but this thing is so amazing I had to share. With every shower I take, I shed a TON of hair and (as you can see from the picture) stick it to the wall so that no hair goes down my drain. I thought this method was working out well but my drain was continuing to stop up. I figured it must be my sister's fault since I was so good about not letting any hairs go down the drain, but I went ahead ordered the TubShroom after seeing advertisements on Facebook. I got this thing and after only two showers, it collected a crap ton of my hair that I didn't catch. It really is so easy to install and wipe away the hair, exactly like the videos. Awesome invention and I'm super happy with this purchase!" —Megan K.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    31. Too little, too late? Try a drain snake you can funnel into your shower drain that honestly works a little *too* well at unclogging hair. (Gross, but still better than the phone call thing!!)


    Promising review: "I’m so excited to finally have a bathroom sink that drains!! Since moving into my apartment, my bathroom sink and bathtub took forever to drain. I bought multiple de-clogging solutions but they didn’t assist or help much with the problem. When my bathtub was taking over an hour to drain I decided it was time to try these out! After receiving it I went to work, within minutes it pulled out so much hair in both drains. It’s disturbing/disgusting yet weirdly satisfying because now my sinks drain!!" —DebSD

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $8.99.

    32. A Baby Yoda dishwasher magnet so cute that you'll actually *want* to do the dishes instead of letting them pile up. This lil' bub is reversible, so you'll always know whether the dishes in the dishwasher are "clean" or "dirty" and avoid any dirty dish-related mishaps.


    Promising review: "Who doesn't love Baby Yoda? I was tired of my husband saying he didn't know if they were clean or not and with us being Star Wars fans I had to go with this design — it's just adorable!" —Melsa

    Get it from Amazon for $9.25.

    Plus, this planner is realistic about sticking to your goals, accounting for all kinds of things you might have forgotten — there's legit a whole section just for holiday shopping. It also comes with motivational stickers, aka the most scientifically sound way to ever get things done.

    Promising review: "I'm new at attempting a budget. It only took me 54 years to figure out it was a good idea. I have been extremely pleased with the three different Clever Fox planners that I own, so I decided to go with this budget journal/tracker. I am so very glad I did. I find it extremely user-friendly and simple to use; I don't feel overwhelmed at all. It is extremely well-made, and I love the paper quality. The purple is so pretty! If you're new to budgeting like me, or an old hand at it, I think you'll be very pleased with this one." —K. Howard

    Promising review: "Repeat customer! I purchased one to organize the garden tools (rake, hoe, cultivator, shovel, etc.) in our garage and by alternating the tops of the tools up/down, was able to fit them neatly in the holder. Liked it so much, going to install another next to it for the other items. The hooks are a nice feature to hold our gloves and a simple plastic bag to hold things when needed." —Rob C.

    Promising review: "This has been the BEST $8 I’ve ever spent! I suffer from psoriasis on my scalp I’ve dealt with FOR YEARS. I get the worst flare ups and the dandruff is just incredibly painful and embarrassing. I tried just about everything. I read some of the reviews and saw some other people had used it for the same thing. I literally just massaged my entire scalp while shampooing. I have a lot of hair so I had to flip my head over and do sections but I was able to get everything off my scalp. I didn’t have ANY dandruff. It really did help get all the buildup out and remove any irritation I had on my scalp. If you have psoriasis, try it!" —Michelle

    Y'all, this stuff is no joke — you can check out the earwax removal kit customer reviews to see the GOBS it is taking outta people's canals.

    Promising review: "I’ve been waking up deaf in one ear recently and didn’t know what to do. It drove me nuts and I tried and tried to stick things in my ear to dig anything that I could out, which probably made it worse. So I finally did some research and found this, which is pretty cheap, and decided to try it out. And I am SO glad I did. I got an M&M-size nugget out of each of my ears! I can hear so well now that it’s actually tripping me out a little bit. How I used it: I bought the box that comes with the rubber bulb syringe. This wouldn’t have worked if I didn’t have that. I laid down on my side and put the Debrox in my ear until it felt like my ear was full, then I just let it soak in there for 20 minutes. I flushed it out with water that was hot, but not enough to be uncomfortable with squirting it into my ear canal. I flushed it as hard as I could, and in all angles. I had to do this 30–40 times before the nugget came out, so just be patient. I did my left ear first and didn’t get much out so I thought it didn’t have anything in it. But then I did my right ear and got a nugget. You will know when your ear is completely cleaned out because the water won’t stay in your ear, and obviously your hearing will immediately be improved. That’s how I knew I had to do my left ear again, and then I got another nugget. So just be patient with it and try it multiple times if needed. Definitely get this if you’re having problems with earwax, it is so worth it!" —Amazon Customer

    38. A cushioned comfort mat designed to alleviate pressure from your poor feet when you're standing in one place for a long time, so you don't have to invest in orthotics to spend a Sunday in the kitchen trying to live out your Great British Bake-Off dreams.


    Promising review: "We purchased the large size to go in front of the sink to the corner of where the cabinets reach the stove. With two small children, I spend most of my day doing dishes and cooking. It's the perfect size and has made such a difference on my back and feet. It is thick, not like the decorative ones at other stores, so it actually does make a difference. The rounded corners are great so we don't trip on it. The gray is a nice earthy grey which will fit any decor. Our dog walks on it often and so far no nail holes! Highly recommend." —S. Jackson

    Promising review: "I adore this product! I have two for my car, one in my house, and bought two for a friend. Works perfect for a large McDonald's Coke now that MdD's has started using sweaty uninsulated plastic cups. I like to sip on a drink for hours, and this keeps the ice from melting for a very long time, and also keeps my hand from getting wet every time I pick up the cup. Also keeps a bottle of water cool if you drop it down into one in the car, and fits a lot of other fast food cups as well. Will probably buy more of these since I love them so much!" —Toni Blake
