    It can also be used on other fog-prone surfaces, including binoculars and windshields!

    Promising review: "I bought this product because wearing a face mask makes my glasses fog. It works all day with only one application, unless I have been doing a lot of activity, then I might have to reapply. Just spray it on the clean lenses of your glasses then wipe dry with a clean dry, lintless cloth, as simple as that. I was so impressed that I gave my second bottle to my team members for them to use. I would not hesitate to buy this again when I need more in the future." —Tonya Crippen

    17. Water bottle–cleaning tablets that'll eliminate stubborn streaks and odors from your fave tumblers. These tiny tablets are chlorine free and easily dissolve, so you can stay hydrated and not drink out of a stinky container.

    Promising review: "I used my first few tabs on my insulated water bottles to just wash/refresh and I didn’t realize how amazing these bad boys really are. We used them in an insulated metal travel coffee cup thing that was stained black inside and after soaking about two hours in hot water, it looked completely brand new again. I don’t know what kind of black magic is packed into these little tablets, but they’re totally worth every penny." —jtobair

Not only is it a treat for my Sami but it removes a lot of fur and her coat is shiny, smooth, and soft, which is a plus for me and no fur is on the floor or couch. This is a great price and a must-buy." —Cody Blackwolf

    Promising review: "Love this. I have many items to plug in now that I have to office at home. There’s plenty of room to plug in two laptops, a computer, a monitor, and my Alexa safely. It’s a little bulkier than I was expecting but that is due to the room your items will need." —Jennifer

    21. And a thin socket cover with an attached power strip, because you can *finally* push your couch against a wall without an awkward gap. If you're done dealing with a bulky plug or power strip, this small gadget can help.

The floor now looks so neat and tidy I can't believe my eyes every time I open my closet doors." —Veronica, just an average reader, you know?

    Promising review: "Literally one of the best items I’ve bought off of Amazon. I have an English bulldog and now that summer is approaching, he’s shedding his winter coat. I let this baby go one round through my kitchen and all the hair is gone! It was able to pick up all the hair in one round while it would’ve taken me two rounds of sweeping! Don’t waste your time on other models and buy this one!" —hayden

    Promising review: "Of all the kitchen gadgets I own, we use this one the most! We eat an avocado almost every day, so I love that this does everything we need! It cuts it in half effortlessly, pulls the pit, and slices the good stuff. If you are eat avocados regularly, invest in this tool. It will save you so much time and effort compared to using several different things to get the job done. I've recommended this to several friends and they've all thanked me for it! As an added bonus I like that we can wash it in the dishwasher." —Amazon Customer
