    3. A set of itty bitty dermaplaning razors you can use to gently remove lil' eyebrow hairs that keep dodging your tweezers or work whatever face fuzzies you might want to take care of in a gentle way — an especially handy tool when many of us can't head to a salon like we normally would.

    6. 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!

    9. 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.

    35. A tea tree oil foot and body wash to help take care of a *myriad* of foot inconveniences, from athlete's foot to ringworm to toenail fungus to eczema. (Feet, as always, are just out here doing the most.)
