    34 Products That'll Help With Basically All Your Little Mess-Ups

    Don't just pretend it didn't happen. These can fix it.

    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 multi-purpose cleaning solution for treating just about everything under the sun: burnt pans, stained tubs, worn-down sinks, even permanent marker mistakes (!!!). It's true there isn't a mess we haven't made, but now there won't be a mess we haven't fixed.

    Promising review: "I was so bummed when I scratched up my pretty white sink with pots and pans. I thought I'd need to have it replaced or try to sand it and refinish it somehow, but I bought this stuff as a last ditch effort to fix it myself. It takes some elbow grease to make them go away, the scratches don't just wipe off, but if you scrub at them for a few minutes they melt away pretty quickly. After two rounds my sink looks nearly brand new again. It also worked on a few mineral stains in my bathtub that I thought were permanent after soft scrub failed to remove them. Again, a little of this stuff, the scrubby side of a blue sponge, a little bit of effort and they were gone!" —Dan Borden

    2. A garbage disposal brush that'll save you from sticking your hand down the *eep* land of soggy leftovers whenever things start to ~really~ smell because yours truly decided it was fine to never clean. Luckily, now you don't have to pay the price.

    Promising review: "This product can be a major kitchen product if you have issues with odors in your garbage disposal. We eat a lot of cereals for breakfast and almost all are loaded with preservatives, which are like glue when they get wet. For two years, we could not get rid of a foul odor for more than a day or two. I purchased this as a last resort, but only expecting it to help a little. The first time I used it, I was amazed at how much gunk was brushed away and odor was reduced. " —C. D. Cornett

    Get it from Amazon for $6.50.

    3. A set of Miracle-Gro spikes to bring your plant babies back to life after accidentally bringing them to the brink of death (let's blame the radiator). They're small and discreet, but can feed your houseplants for up to ~two months~ with micronutrients so having thriving greenery doesn't involve trial and error.

    Promising review: "I have several houseplants that had stopped flowering, so I put a few of these spikes in the pot (there are directions on the back of package for quantity), and approximately a month after using these spikes, my peace lily had three flowers on it, and my African violets plants all got several blooms on them! This worked wonders for my plants that don't flower also! I noticed that my ivy and cactus plants started growing faster, and they became more green and healthy looking. I am very happy with this product, and I will buy it again." —Elizabeth

    4. A charcoal air-freshening bag, because this'll undo any ~lingering odors~ from when you let leftovers sit in your fridge for farrrr too long.

    People also use them in cars, closets, or wherever else needs a little *freshening up*!

    Promising review: "My apartment came with a peculiar smell I could neither identify nor locate. I hung packets in the living room, kitchen, bathroom, and two bedroom closets and voilà — after a few days, problem solved. One or all of them together eliminated whatever was already present, and the apartment remains odor-free (cooking odors dissipate within a short time, too)." —Cecilia P

    Get a pack of five from Amazon for $16.95.

    Read how these work in a BuzzFeeder's breakdown of a similar product in "Stop Throwing Out Your Stinky Shoes And Get These Charcoal Shoe Deodorizers."

    5. A pack of moldable glue so you can quickly and cheaply fix frayed chargers (unless you enjoy precariously perching your phone into that one position) *and* mend certain items you've broken in half. Your poor kid's toy will never be the same.

    Promising review: "Really amazing stuff. I took two phone charging cords that were splitting — within another week they would’ve been in the trash — and completely salvaged them. Not pretty, but impressive. The product stayed put, maintain flexibility, and yet the cords are still working fine. Really amazing! Worth every penny. Product dried smooth, soft, not sticky or tacky, really ideal." —seashore6

    Get pack of three from Amazon for $9.97.

    6. An address and password logbook to help you never spend another hour of your life tying to recover the password that you KNOW your computer — not you — simply forgot. And we can't prove we're not a robot. What was our mother's maiden name again?! This is so stressful — let this save the day.


    I JUST WANT TO WATCH MY SHOWS. This has a whopping 144 pages, including tabbed alphabetical pages!

    Promising review: "I finally have all of my usernames, passwords, account numbers, service providers, etc. all in one place. No more sticky notes and little pieces of ripped paper or resetting my passwords all the time to only forget and reset them again. I searched for a couple weeks until I decided on this particular book. It seemed to offer the best layout and amount of information I could log and hasn't disappointed me yet. I love it! You can even store internet service info for easy reference." —Elizabeth R.

    7. A set of smart plugs that'll let you control your devices with your phone whenever you're away from home — particularly useful when you can't remember if you turned off your curling iron. Crisis averted., Amazon

    This works with Alexa devices to let you make voice commands ("Alexa, turn on fan") through the Gosund app. You can also schedule controls, like turning off your slow cooker, so you don't have to worry all day.

    Promising review: "Really love these. Got them on Prime Day and decided to add more to my home already. It’s nice to be able to schedule lights to power on and off at particular times. I have one connected to my hair tools to turn off in a certain amount of time as well. I’m always frantic when I forget and no longer an issue. Set-up was incredibly easy. There is a scan code on the box to download the app on your phone, or you can search by the company name in the App Store. Once I got past that it, was just a matter of renaming each and setting a schedule." —Amy M.

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $29.99.

    8. A mini contact lens case to have a backup plan when you lose a contact midday. It features a solution bottle, tweezers, lens holder, and mirror to keep you PREPARED. No more spending the afternoon with one eye closed.

    Promising review: "I love this product a lot. Super cute!! It’s very minimalistic and fits in my purse just fine. I have no worries about it opening in my bag because it snaps tightly, but isn’t hard to open at all. I would recommend this product to any contact-wearer!!" —Krystal

    Get it from Amazon for $4.68 (available in four colors).

    9. A tube of shoe repair adhesive, because this'll help you successfully perform small surgeries on your favorite boots that you insisted on wearing until they were worn to the ground. It'll mend rubber soles, close tears, and reunite you and your beloved solemates.


    Promising review: "This glue is great. I thought I'd have to throw out my favorite sneakers. The toe soles were completely separated. I first sealed the sole edges with glue and let them dry overnight. Then I glued the edges together. I had to hold them together for 10-15 minutes. They dried in 48 hours and my sneakers are like new. It's now three weeks later and they're still good to go. Awesome product." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $4.96.

    10. A roll of eco-friendly, reusable bamboo towels so you can both clean up messes a whole lot faster thanks to the absorbent material *and* save money in the long run. Plus, these are good for the Earth! Everybody wins.


    They're made from sustainable, organic bamboo — one roll replaces 60 paper towel rolls. Plus, they're machine-washable and *super* strong. They can be used ~120+ times~ before discarding.

    Promising review: "I have been using mine for about two months. We have an almost 17-year-old dog who has accidents in the house. These are very absorbent. They rinse (I always rinse them after I clean up dog pee and then just toss them in the washer for the next load) and wash very very well. I wish I had bought them sooner. Absolutely worth the money. I have washed and dried them multiple times, though I prefer to hang them up to dry." —Animalfarm

    Get a roll of 20 sheets from Amazon for $8.99.

    11. A pan scraper for properly cleaning cast iron pans, burnt cookware, or tough residue without scratching the surface. No need to scrub for two hours after forgetting your precious lasagna was still in the oven.

    Promising review: "These are surprisingly handy. We use them on our cast iron and stainless steel pots and pans since we've stopped using non-stick cookware. They clean super easily and take up zero storage space, which is convenient. We've used them for other random tasks like cleaning gunk off the the counter from the kids' snacks or art projects. Definitely handy." —J&CBaxter

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $2.99.

    12. A wrinkle-release spray that'll make sure you still look crisp and clean, even after hitting the snooze button for an hour straight. Now you don't have to choose between being late in the name of ironing or looking messy.

    Promising review: "This year I have been attending medical school interviews all over the country. I have ONE suit that I do not have the money to continuously dry clean between interviews. I bought these to keep with me when traveling so my suit remains pressed and fresh. I typically spray it and do not hot iron it (as it's time consuming and I have other things to worry about on interview day, like answer prep and transportation). Really does what it says, is great at keeping clothes crisp and nice-smelling, especially if you have a garment that wrinkles easily and you don't feel like ironing before each wear." —Taylor

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $13.94.

    13. An aligner case so you have an alternative place to safely keep your aligners should you leave your first case at home — living in fear is probably getting annoying. You'll just need to keep track of at least ONE of these...heck, keep it at your desk to nix taking chances.

    When you're done with your aligner treatment, you can use it as a retainer case! You can also get an extra aligner removal tool so you don't chance losing the only one you have and...not eating the whole day. Nope.

    Promising review: "This retainer case is strong and surprisingly heat-resistant. I accidentally left it in my car while I went to class and two hours later, I came back to my car and the case itself wasn’t even hot. My retainers were not in the case but it helps to know that if I did leave them accidentally in the case in my car, they won’t actually melt into putty." —rabailey90

    Get it from Amazon for $7.69 (available in nine colors).

    14. A set of wireless item trackers, because you'll never waste 20 minutes desperately searching for your remote under couch cushions again. "I KNOW I LEFT IT RIGHT HERE," you always say. Spoiler: you did not.

    This comes with one transmitter and four receivers. Once you press the remote, a receiver sound beeps and the items lights up. The remote's range reaches up to 30 METERS, so if you're one to throw your keys out the window, you're in luck.

    Promising review: "Do you have kids? We have three of them. By the time I get home from a long day at work, sometimes I just need a little Netflix or Amazon Prime. Before I got these, there was this hellish period of 'you've got to be kidding me? What do you mean you don't remember where you put it?!?!'. Sure, we had a designated basket where the remotes should go, but they'd be under the couch, under a blanket, in the next room, etc. Now, all I do is click a button on the base remote and the fob chimes away and we have fun finding the cussed little devices. Sure, they still end up in every conceivable unusual spot, but now we can find them." —UkuleleJoe

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    15. A wood polisher so you can get rid of any wear and tear your table or wardrobe may be starting to show after you repeatedly scratched it with your keys. No trip to IKEA necessary. This + an episode of Netflix = no more water marks or damage.

    Plus, it feeds your wood protective carnauba wax and beeswax to give it some ~luster~ and extend its lifetime.

    Promising review: "OMG! This is the most AMAZING product! We inherited some antique furniture from the '30s that had been in storage forever. It was dry, dirty, and not much to look at. I used this product on it and the oak wood literally came alive, showing the beautiful grain and texture of the wood. I have since used it on my oak kitchen cabinets and they look AMAZING! I will never use anything else other than this product on my wood surfaces! No greasy feel, just a fantastic smell!" —Tiffany Sadowski

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48.

    16. A four-way cleaning brush for hiding any evidence of walking through mud and salted sidewalks this whole dang season. Spending less than $10 on this > having to invest in another pair of boots.

    It has four sides: one to clean heavier scuff marks and stains, one to gently clean fine suede and light scuff marks, one to clean rounded corners, and one to clean hard-to-reach crevices and grooves.

    Promising review: "I was really sad when I thought my bucks were at the end of their road, because I had always heard that suede couldn't be cleaned. With this brush and a little elbow grease my bucks are looking great again! I didn't use any water or cleaner, I just kept wiping the brush off on my jeans to keep the brush clean, then hit the shoe again with a clean surface. It even brightened the leather up a bit." —Roberto

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    17. A set of Drop Stop gap fillers that'll catch all of the precious fries that don't make it to your mouth. If you pick them back up and eat them, I won't blame you. I promise.

    They even fit around your seat belts and move with the seats if you adjust them!

    Promising review: "I have to admit, my expectations weren't very high. I thought it was more of a joke when my husband got this for me for Christmas. Little did I realize it would be one of my most favorite gadgets ever! I don't know if I realized just how many things went missing in my seat gap. It has really saved a lot of things from disappearing into that black hole. It was easy enough to fit into my car and it's soft! It's just like an extension of my seat, except it fits every curve of my seat!" —Tessa Forbes

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $19.99.

    18. A duo of Rubbermaid produce-saving containers to drastically extend the life of your groceries if you're consistently guilty of buying more than you plan to eat that week. Your veggies can last up to TWO WEEKS in these bbs, which'll help cut down on how much you keep throwing out.

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I wish I would have gotten these sooner. I bought strawberries for my children, and then I forgot about them. I found them in the back of the refrigerator almost TWO WEEKS later, and they were still good. The real miracle is how long it keeps zucchini. Zucchini starts to get mushy in the crisper drawer after just a few days. Again, these miracle containers have kept it fresh for close to two weeks now. I've kept cut lettuce, cut cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, cucumbers, zucchini, sliced bell peppers, strawberries, blackberries, cut jicama, and carrots in these containers. I've had fantastic results with all of them." —Laura

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $16.99 (available in six sizes).

    19. A windshield cover, because this'll make your morning a heck of a lot easier after you spent the whole weekend *ignoring* all the snow building up on your windshield. Good thing you can just lift it all off instead of scraping until the cows come home.

    This just brought up memories of me trying to drive to school with snow all over the windshield, and I really hope I'm not alone on that. This comes with four magnets to keep the cover down!

    Promising review: "I just recently bought this product and it definitely lives up to my expectations. It has been windy all day and it has stayed on no problem. I have a Chevy sonic and it completely covers the windshield. I'd expect it to fit a much larger windshield, too. It keeps the snow off." —Shelby

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    20. An eyeglass repair kit (it's great for broken sunglasses, too!) so the next time you break your glasses, you can fix 'em right away instead of having to make time to go to the optometrist. Which is great, because this seems to happen a lot.

    It includes four snap-off screws, one screwdriver, and one convenient carrying tube.

    Promising review: "In less than five minutes, I have glasses again. I still had my original screw and I even had a tiny screwdriver for eyeglasses, but because the barrels couldn't align straight anymore, it was impossible for me to get the tiny screw through the holes with my fingers. But one of the screws in this kit worked perfectly." —Danielle L. Petty

    Get it from Amazon for $5.50.

    21. A leak-proof stainless steel travel mug for preventing catastrophic spills in your car the next time you lose your grip. No more early morning crises before you've even HAD your caffeine.

    This boasts a totally spill-proof lid (thanks to its vacuum insulation technology) AND keeps your drinks hot for up to five hours and cold up to 12 hours! Plus, it makes drinking with one hand (hello, driving) easy, courtesy of its big button to open.

    Promising review: "This is thee BEST creation ever and I don't know why I didn't purchase one earlier in life! This cup is 100% spill-proof and is ever so conducive to my daily lifestyle. I live in NY and the busy train traffic causes me to have to use my hands sometimes and I can't, because I have to hold my morning brew. This cup makes that so much easier to toss in my purse without worry of spilling the substance. The lock feature gives that extra sense of safety that if the button autoseal button is accidentally pressed nothing will spill." —Pea

    Get it from Amazon for $11.69+ (available in two sizes and in 18 colors).

    22. A pack of screen repair tape that'll quickly mend any tears, which is a lot better than your usual solution of saying, "now what?" for the next five years. Just slap this on and move on with your life — it was getting a little chilly.

    It includes a 2-by-80-inch roll you can easily cut with scissors! Plus, it has three layers to make this v strong.

    Promising review: "I have used this in two places so far. One was a small hole in a window screen. The other a very large hole in a screen door. I used a small patch for the first and three pieces on the other. It works great so far — sticks well and easily. It doesn't exactly blend in, but gets the job done great. Seeing as the screen door is because my dog scratches doors to go outside, I anticipate many future uses! It's much better alternative than replacing the whole screen — very affordable solution." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    23. A wine stain-removing spray to prevent any nights out from going sour. But if you DO spill red wine (who trusted us with merlot?!), you'll be able to spritz away all your problems. Back to the cheese spread.

    Promising review: "I fell in love with this product some 15 years ago and I am so very happy that it's still available in the same wonderful formula as ever. It has a fantastic citrus scent. This takes care of any stain so fast and efficiently, it's become a party trick. I have seriously poured red wine over a white comforter to demonstrate how great it is to a friend once. It is a miracle in a bottle! We use it for all sorts of cleaning on materials around the house, and one bottle has lasted us years! This is definitely a product every home should have." —Melanie Nolen

    Get it from Amazon for $6.67.

    To learn more, check out our review in "We Tested Gadgets For People Who Suck At Cleaning, And Here's What Actually Worked".

    24. A handy device, because now you and your family can easily keep track of whether the dog has been fed. No more accidentally feeding them twice. A win for you guys. A loss for the dog.

    Promising review: "This is an awesome product! There are four of us that were working together to feed the dogs. It simplified everything, because I no longer have to text to see if anyone had fed them every morning. Now I just to see if it's green and if it's not, I feed them and indicate it. We all love it so much!" —Toni Deegan

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    25. A portable pill organizer so you can simplify keeping track of your pills (or vitamins!) and make sure you actually *remember* to take 'em. Each box is color coded, divided by morning and night, and small enough to put in your bag so you can reduce the risk of forgetting such an important part of the day again.

    It comes with a case for every day of the week.

    Promising review: "I love this. I used to forget whether I had already taken my twice-a-day pill or not and I'd have to dump out all my pills, count them, look at the calendar, heck — I even once made a spreadsheet to try and figure out if I had taken my pill that day. Not anymore!! I love the colors and design, and especially love that I can bring one or two day's worth of pills in the smaller containers in my purse without bringing the whole thing. This small thing has reduced stress in my life." —E. Trimber

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48.

    26. A powder dry shampoo for making your hair look like it was just washed, even when you don't have time to shower in the morning (you just had to keep sleeping, didn't you?). It uses rice starch to absorb excess oil without leaving white residue, while seamlessly blending into every hair color. All you need to do is use your fingers.

    Promising review: "After using this, my hair has great volume and it doesn't look greasy at all. I have very fine, blonde hair. My hair gets greasy so fast, I'm amazed at how well this works and very impressed. The bottle is tiny, but you will be surprised how little you need to use. It will last you several months. It has a very light lavender smell and is not overpowering at all. If you want a more natural approach, definitely give this a try!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    27. A carpet-cleaning shampoo that won't punish you for waiting six whole months to address the stains on your rug. Who was it that never took off their muddy shoes? Oh yes, YOU. Not "the dog" like you so boldly claimed.

    It also deodorizes any gifts your pet might have left you (and it's biodegradable and non-toxic, so your furry friend is totally safe).

    Promising review: "I was very skeptical of the ratings. I just have to say they’re accurate. I had a room that had housed some pets while we were away at work and over many years accidents happened. When you’re not there to clean it up right away, the carpet gets stained. I had used carpet cleaners with all kinds of recommended cleaners, but it just didn’t have an impact. After using up the last of another cleaner I had I finally opened this one. The pictures (above) are just after some light spot cleaning and one round with the carpet cleaner." —Kristen K

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    28. A pack of Goodwipes hygiene wipes to freshen yourself up in a jiffy if you hit the snooze button for an hour instead of getting up to shower. Your desk-mate will never be the wiser.

    They're also great for using after a workout if you don't have time to shower! They feature tea tree oil and peppermint to help you feel refreshed even when you, well, weren't a couple minutes ago. Plus, they're alcohol-free and hypoallergenic, so they're great for sensitive skin!

    Promising review: "I wish I had a funny review here, but B.O. is no joke! I work out hard, I sweat hard, and sweat stinks! I also run my own incredibly busy business and have two small kids. Every minute of my day counts and showering early in the day is a luxury that I don’t always get to indulge in! But that leaves me smelling 'straight out the locker room' for a large part of my day before I get to shower — no good! Enter these — they're a game changer! I work out, sweat like a boss, wipe down, and voila: no longer offensive! In fact, I actually smell and feel fresh! Big fan!" —Anna Palestis Frenkel

    Get a pack of 10 from Amazon for $9.99.

    29. A spackle kit, because this'll fill in any holes you've made in the walls (aka when you hung up pictures with abandon and then rearranged them AGAIN) quickly and easily — and most importantly, ensure you get your security deposit back.

    This kit contains spackle, primer, a putty knife, and sanding pad!

    Promising review: "I slipped in the shower the other day and grabbed my towel bar outside of it as to not die. Doing so, I ripped the bar off of the wall, including the screws and anchors, so I had four small but kind of nasty holes in my wall. I've never done any sort of drywall repair/spackling/etc, and I figure for under $10 with all I could need, this would do the job. I applied the spackle, smoothed it with the flat end of the tube, and allowed it to dry. I was able to sand it smooth and then paint over the spackle. It looks fine now. I give it a five for convenience." —John J. Connelly Jr.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.97.

    30. A set of double-tipped pointed cotton swabs so you can fix smudged eyeliner — or, really, any mistakes — instead of singing "hello darkness, my old friend" and leaving the messy wings.


    Promising review: "Honestly, reviewing something like this is silly — but I just love these. I use them all the time. They are great for cleaning up any little makeup mistakes!" —Jeanine

    Get a pack of 400 from Amazon for $8.99 (available in two styles).

    31. A multi-surface cleaning spray especially popular for car seats to remove the coffee stains from when you swore you could make that yellow light. You could not and made a mess. But this'll help you forget all about that.

    Promising review: "This product is great! All their products are great! But this new product they have developed knocks it out of the ball park! The pictures (above) are pictures of a 2007 Nissan Titan truck I was detailing for a customer. The seats were disgusting and stained. I CAN ASSURE YOU ALL I USED WAS CAR GUYS SUPER CLEANER to clean the seats. I simply sprayed this all over the seat until it was damp, scrubbed with a detail brush, then vacuumed all of it up and dried it with a microfiber. The results speak for themselves. This really is a SUPER CLEANER that is capable of cleaning mostly every interior surface and does an amazing job at it!" —Joseph L.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    32. A squeegee broom for efficiently mopping up big spills instead of desperately doing floor angels with paper towels until the roll is all gone.


    It's popular for cleaning pet hair, too! The natural rubber bristles attract fur on multiple surfaces, like carpet, tile, hardwood, and linoleum AND the built-in rubber squeegee (aka the thing you use on your windshield) is great for cleaning windows and spills.

    Promising review: "This is by far my favorite broom! I am a little obsessive about cleaning and this does so much! It gets the dog hair that is invisible to my eyes, it finds dirt that is super fine, and it goes from room to room without any issues! Cat hair on the carpet? This gets it off! Crumbs from dinner on the tile floor? This finds it! Spill water on the hardwood? No problem! I buy everyone one of these and I've only ever heard great things from them too!" —I Spend Too Much Money

    Get it from Amazon for $13.33.

    33. A monthly bill planner that'll help you finally face your biggest fear: budgeting. Remember the last time you didn't want to think about your credit card statement and forgot to pay the bill? Not good. This'll break everything down (including a debt payment log, daily and weekly expense tracker, and budget worksheet) to make finances feel less scary. Phew.


    It helps set financial goals, strategize, track savings, track debt, and plan out spending by month. It even has extra space for holiday budgeting and an annual summary to track your progress throughout the year. You can also keep receipts and bills in its pocket!

    Promising review: "I have struggled with budgeting my entire adult life. I have made many resolutions that I was going to keep track of my spending and that I was going to plan for the future, but the resolution has fallen apart for many reasons, not the least of which was not having a way to keep track with which I was comfortable. This allows me plenty of space at the front to name my budget goals, and to keep track of my progress. Rather than seeing a budget as a life-time thing, which I think is what makes it hard for me to commit to it on a daily basis, this provides me with plenty of motivation to keep going from day to day and beyond. Budgeting now makes much more sense in my life." —Lorraine Berry

    34. A set of Affresh dishwasher cleaning tablets to finally clean the current mess you've been pretending to "not see" due to tossing dirty dishes in, crumbs and all. This may be why our parents told us to ~rinse~ dishes first...well, now we don't have to, anyway.

    Promising review: "This works extremely well. We haven't done any cleaning on our dishwasher in five years, and the sliding dish trays were tough to pull out or push in, there was detergent build-up all over the inside, and there was a milky film on all our cups. I bought Affresh, ran the dishwasher with two tablets while it was empty, and the difference was astounding. No more film on the glasses, no more dirty dishes from clogged sprayers, no more odors, or build-up around the door seals. I'm going to be buying Affresh from now on, and hopefully it will extend the life of my dishwasher." —Martoune

    Get it from Amazon for $5.33.
