    Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "The only negative with having a lab in your life is the shedding! Itโ€™s even more terrible during the transitional seasons. After reading other reviews, I decided to upgrade to this brush. So glad I did! I found basically another dogโ€™s worth of hair and could have kept going!

    Promising review: "I have thick 4c hair and I love this set. My hair came out so curly. It really reminded me of the movie star curls because it has been such a long time since I have seen my hair curl without having to use heat to it. I will either use a curling cream or a curling gel and leave the rods in overnight and then I get my curls in the morning." โ€”Marisa Fields-Williams

    Promising review: "I bought these organizers for my socks and such, but three-quarters of them were used for my husband's sock drawers. They are not rigid, which helps with different sizes and thicknesses. Thank you so much for this product.

    Promising review: "I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug โ€” 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 HydroFlask to replace it. Now 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." โ€”Amazon Customer

    Promising review:ย "Wonderful!! We spent the past month remodeling our living room, but we didn't account for how AWFUL the cable boxes and modem were going to look on our beautiful new shelves. Saw this, and had to have it! Covogoods not only communicated quickly with me, but were EXTREMELY accommodating in my requests. Turned out exactly how I envisioned it, and dimensions were spot on!

    Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "I never write reviews, but this stuff is a miracle so I had to. Stop debating which wart removal product you want to buy and get this now. I've tried everything, including having my warts frozen off at the doctor, and not even that did the trick. This stuff did. My warts were extremely large and stubborn, but I was persistent with the gel every day for about six weeks, and they're almost gone. It's absolutely amazing." โ€”Maria Efting

    Get it from Amazon for $6.96.

    Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is the best product I have ever used! If you have heavy iron stains this is the product for you. We have had these iron stains for three years and nothing has ever helped. When I sprayed this Iron Out on, I let it sit overnight and it just started to disappear. I didn't have the patience to scrub the entire tub, so I sprayed for a couple of weeks without ever scrubbing and it slowly came off. The first picture (see one on right side above) was taken after a couple of days of spraying this stuff on." โ€”Brittany Overlock

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $20.99.

    Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love these little cleaning eggs! I coupled one with a brush shampoo. It cleaned out loads of product even after I thought they were clean. My brushes are now fresh and soft. I was able to really get my brushes clean without having to be overly rough with them. A solid purchase.

    Tip: hang your brushes upside down to dry to keep the bristles soft and fluffy and allow the bases to fully dry out. (I use an IKEA sock hanger)." โ€”Shadia Elhert

    Get them both from Amazon: the shampoo for $6.99 and the pack of two eggs for $3.99.

    10. A set of thick velvet slip covers that'll instantly turn your dull sofa into a beautiful seating area. If your couch is covered in stains or looks a little worn, just place a couple of these on top for a jaw-dropping transformation that requires minimal effort. ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

    This set also comes with nonslip straps that'll prevent your "seats" from shifting out of place. It's also available in a bunch of colors, in case you want to do a total makeover, as shown in the review picture above.

    Promising review: "I have never been so excited about a slipcover. Total transformation of our couch and loveseat. I was worried about it not working on our leather couch, but it stays on really well due to the straps and the separate cushion covers. Love!" โ€”Brian/Liz

    Get it from Amazon for $47.49+ (available in 10 colors).

    11. Space-saving vacuum storage bags for the piles of seasonal gear (looking at you, shorts) that end up stuffed in your closet or under-bed space. Spare yourself the stress of storage woes and compress 'em in these bags that'll be lifesaving when you, again, have to take out summer things when the weather warms up.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed editor Maitland Quitmeyer swears by these vacuum bags and said: "I chose the large size (as opposed to the biggest size, called "jumbo") because it seemed easier to move and store โ€” jumbo is probably perfect for bedding, duvets, etc! And just one large bag was plenty to store nine or ten *very* large winter sweaters โ€” all collapsed down to a fraction of their size. And it was surprisingly effortless, too! I didn't feel like breaking out the vacuum, so I just used the included hand pump, and it took maybe three minutes max to pump out the air and shrink the bag before replacing the cap โ€” easy peasy! And no danger of re-inflation." Read her full vacuum storage bags review (it's #2 on the list)!

    Get them from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in five sizes and variety packs).

    12. A conditioning oil to soften damaged cuticles. Its jojoba and vitamin E-rich formula penetrates the nail bed and cuticle area to help restore moisture and strengthen weak nails.

    Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "I came back to order a second bottle so I thought I should write a review. The oil does wonders for the skin around your nail as well as the nail itself. It definitely has extended the life of my manicure by preventing the cuticle from looking dry and rough. I apply it once every other day and I saw results in two weeks and it's way cheaper than some of the other stuff out there." โ€”Jenna W.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50.

    13. A jewelry cleaning pen with micro-fine cleansers that'll get your rings sparkling again. No more dull diamonds or dirty scuffs on your fave baubles.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    My colleague Heather Braga tried this cleaning pen and said: "This seemingly average little cleaning pen is filled with a high-performance formula that cleans jewelry like nothing I've ever experienced. It contains micro-fine cleansers, polishing agents, and a polymer that will make your gems so shiny they'll nearly blind you. I've used it on my diamond rings, but it also works wonders on my cubic zirconia earrings." Check out her review of the Connoisseurs 1050 Diamond Dazzle Stick.

    Promising review: "My life has changed since I discovered this. I was previously using a toothbrush and found that it just wasn't getting all the gunk underneath my diamond. I have no idea what kind of magic is in this cleaning stick but my ring looks brand-new after cleaning. The bristles are soft and firm at the same time, allowing you to get all around the prongs and underneath the stone." โ€”Ay

    Get it from Amazon for $6.69.

    14. A cool pill-removing, pumice-esque stone that'll help revive the clothes you always wear. Just brush this baby across your fave sweatshirts or sweaters and say buh-bye to bad pilling. They'll look *almost* brand-new in no time and you can avoid a trip to the dry cleaners.

    BuzzFeed/Maitland Quitmeyer

    BuzzFeed Shopping editor Maitland Quitmeyer loves this little tool! She said: "Like many of you, I've been living in sweats and PJs during this almost-year of WFH full time. And it's made me revisit the state of some of my loungewear. Take for example, this college sweatshirt I wear all the time โ€” as evidenced by the rather EXTENSIVE pilling all over it. So when I saw this pumice-esque sweater stone (it's made from upcycled car windshield glass โ€” how cool is that?!), I decided it was worth the try. We've featured electric pill removers (mostly the fan-favorite Conair one) many times, and they really work. But sometimes you're looking for a little more detail or control โ€” that's where this stone comes in handy. I was able to navigate around the contours of the logo on my sweatshirt with ease, removing pills using the corner or the entire flat bottom in a few quick strokes. It truly took no time at all โ€” the sweatshirt was done in mere minutes." Read more of her Celsious Sweater Pill Remover review.

    Get it from Celsious (A Black woman-owned, Brooklyn-based small business) for $17 or from Amazon for $9.99.

    15. A pack of clip-in hair extensions for times when you want to give your hair a little more length. If your locks are on the shorter side or you really want to rock a longer ponytail, these synthetic strands will give you the 'do of your dreams.

    amazon.com

    These hair extensions are heat-resistant up to 300-ish degrees, so you can blow dry, straighten, and curl them with the rest of your hair.

    Promising review: "I can't believe all the money I spent on natural hair extensions until I got these. OMG I'm so amazed by how natural they look. They are super voluminous and soft. I bought two since my hair is really short and I like to use a huge amount of hair, but even with one you can rock lots of hairstyles. Thank you so much for this product! In the picture I'm wearing only one and you can tell how good they are." โ€”JE

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99 (available in five lengths and 44 colors, some solid, some with highlights, and some with a balayage effect).

    16. Tend Skin's Razor Bump Solution because it reduces the appearance of inflamed ingrown hairs that won't budge. Apply this solution after shaving and your underarms will thank you.

    Promising review: "This product has worked great on my armpits where I had painful, gross, inflamed, and embarrassing hair follicles for years! I have noticed less of a difference on razor burn and ingrown hairs in other areas." โ€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    17. A surface cover to make your boring countertops look *way better* than they did before. Everyone will be asking, "did you redo part of your kitchen?!" when IRL, you just stuck on this marble-print adhesive and didn't get expensive renovations.

    Amazon / Via amazon.com

    This marble-print surface cover is so easy to use: measure your kitchen countertop, cut the amount you'll need, peel off the adhesive liner, and stick it on! That's it! Some reviewers also recommend using a credit card to gently smooth out any bubbles that may pop up in the process.

    If you want to spruce up other areas around home, this cover also works great for cabinets and other pieces of furniture (bookcases, desks, dressers, and more).

    Promising review: "I fell in love with this contact paper. I used it in my kitchen to turn my counter from black marble to white marble and they came out amazing. I wanted to do my whole house! I love that it's so easy to clean also, anything and everything has been spilled on the counter after application and everything has come off with no residue left behind! Will for sure be ordering again for further home projects!" โ€”Ari M. Esparza

    Get it from Amazon for $5.09+ (available in four sizes).

However, I havenโ€™t been able to get the dark color from mold out of the shower caulking until I used this Tilex! Iโ€™ve used every product and nothing has worked until now!

    Promising review: "The power washer was delivered Monday, itโ€™s Wednesday and I have washed two cars, cleaned the driveway and sidewalks, cleaned the back fence, and the work keeps piling up, everything I see now needs to be cleaned! This little dude does not back down, it has plenty of power, and it's surprisingly not too loud. The soap dispensers work great and the tips are easy to change." โ€”Mar

    Get it from Amazon for $159.99.

    21. A leave-in conditioning spray that'll get to work on frizzy and tangled hair. Argan, coconut, and rosehip oils help tame split ends, provide conditioning, and act as a shield against breakage. You'll get wavy, shiny, and flyaway-free hair with this quick and easy treatment.

    Promising review: "I really like this leave in spray. My hair can get slightly frizzy after blow-drying and styling. Using this before on damp hair really helped my hair to turn out much more smooth and polished. It has a nice light scent and helped reduce frizz for the whole day for me." โ€”Briogeo Customer

    Get it from Briogeo or Amazon for $20.

    22. A bleached-based instant stain remover spray because mold and mildew don't deserve a hangout spot on your patio furniture, bird bath, or cute outdoor sculptures. It removes stains from the toughest surfaces *and* doesn't require any scrubbing.

When I checked back all of the mold was gone, everything, with no damage to the painted stucco wall or cement and no scrubbing literally spray and leave." โ€”Mark

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in four sizes and in packs of two).

    23. A foot file so good at gently removing dead skin, you'll gasp at your newly soft heels that were once crusty, callused, and cracked.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing is pretty amazing. I was skeptical for sure, since I've tried all kinds of lotions, balms, and stone-based products, none of which helped my heels whatsoever. I've worn socks to bed for years, because if I don't the sheets hardly last a week before they have holes rubbed through them. My wife ordered this thing that looks like a mini cheese grater, lol, and after two minutes โ€” two minutes!! โ€” of rubbing it on my heel, it's a complete 180. I never would've believed it until I tried it myself. This is well worth double what it costs." โ€”LBK

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $21.99.

    24. A rotating makeup organizer that'll get your brushes, sponges, cleaners, and other beauty goods in order. You'll find this storage solution incredibly useful, especially if you don't have enough counter space.

    Promising review: "I got this to help save space on my bathroom counter. My boyfriend and I live together and, unfortunately, in our rental we only have one sink to share. I have a pretty extensive skincare routine and have recently gotten him into his own little regimen, so he too, has his own little collection. This helped clear up a ton of space on our small counter and even he appreciates it!" โ€”Katreina

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in three colors).

    25. A sponge-tipped concealer to seamlessly cover up acne, dark spots, and dark circles. It's packed with goji berry and Haloxyl that'll help minimize the appearance of puffiness and conceal irritated spots. Yes to working that makeup pro magic in minutes. ๐Ÿ‘

    Kayla Suazo/BuzzFeed

    My colleague Kayla Suazo loves this concealer and said: "There are few beauty products out there that I consistently go back to, which says a lot because I love everything that has to do with makeup. But alas, here I am, consistently finding my way back to Maybellineโ€™s Instant Age Rewind Concealer. Itโ€™s just *THAT* good! I still donโ€™t know how a $7 tube of concealer (I use the Neutralizer shade) beats out the more expensive ones I have stuffed into my vanity, but it does. Itโ€™s not too creamy or thick, yet it still gives solid coverage without the cake-y feeling. It blends incredibly well with every foundation I wear (not at the same time, LOL) โ€” and I have a lot of foundations." Read her full Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer review for more (it's number four).

    Get it from Amazon for $5.87+ (available in 18 shades).

    Amazon / Via amazon.com

    The only surfaces it doesn't work on? Silk, leather, suede, or rubber!

    Promising review: "I bought this to help get some sticky junk left from Velcro on my motorcycle. I had tried rubbing alcohol and other tricks before using this stuff. Let me just say what a difference this stuff makes. All the sticky junk just wipes away on the first try. I didnโ€™t need to soak it or anything. No residue was left behind at all and no damage to the paint. Best $8 I ever spent!" โ€”Appleee

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    27. A multi-tasking face oil you'll want to use if your skin is stressed out. Jojoba oil, vitamin E, tea tree oil, and Argan oil work together to repair the skin and soothe irritated areas on your cheeks, chin, and forehead.

    Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "I remodeled my house and added a walk in closet. It looked amazing! Then I added the velvet hangers, and I just can't believe how much nicer it looks compared to the round plastic ones. Definitely makes it look more high end. It is also true that you can fit way more clothes in you closet with these too. Love! Because they look so nice, they have upped my organization game...now I have my clothes arranged by type, material, and color ;) Who knew a hanger could do all that?!" โ€”Wendy H

    Promising review: "About a month and a half of use has really transformed my nails! Iโ€™ve been using this three to four times a day (as well as the occasional gel manicure and some strengthening polish, no different from my prior routine). My nails have never been this long and strong โ€” even when I picked off gel polish (bad, I know!). I really like the scent (slightly coconut-y) and a little goes a long way. Iโ€™m not even halfway through the tub and I basically dip the tips of my nails in and massage the balm into my nail beds. Definitely worth the money." โ€”Madison

    Get it from Amazon for $7.94+ (also available in a two-pack and three-pack).

    30. Pumice stones to get rid of gross toilet bowl rings and hard water stains in your sink. They'll easily remove grime from bathroom surfaces when bleach and other potent cleaners can't get the job done.

    Promising review: "Needed something to take the edge off Taco Tuesdays and all the veggie chopping. We were able to cut down prep to five minutes versus 15 minutes, and use the extra time to enjoy a conversation with family during dinner. Do yourself a favor and pick up this lifesaver for at-home cooks." โ€”Mark Marin II

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99.

    32. A patch kit because you never know when you'll need to seal up a dent or nail hole in a wall. It comes with everything you need to get the job done: the spackle and primer in the tube, the sanding pad on the lid, and the putty knife on the end.

    Amazon, Amazon / Via amazon.com

    This patch kit will save you so much time when it comes to repairs, because it doesn't require any vinyl spackling!

    Promising review: "I was initially a little concerned at the size of the tube once received but it ended up being more than needed. I used this to fill in two large large bolt holes from a TV I previously had mounted on the wall and four decent-sized holes from a sound bar that was mounted below it. Application was extremely easy. I waited about 45 minutes and applied a coat of paint, and by the next morning you could not even tell the holes were ever there. Highly recommended." โ€”Steelstorm

    Get it from Amazon for $5.98.

    33. A dark spot corrector to target acne scars and hyperpigmentation on your face. This gentle formula will boost brightness, thanks to ferulic acid, Waltheria Indica extract, and mushroom extract. Reviewers also say it works great for their underarms and bikini areas.

    Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was skeptical of these, but now I'm pretty sure they're what Mulan's outfit was made of when she wiped her makeup off on her sleeve in the movie. Even totally dry, they do a pretty impressive job of taking off all my makeup (including waterproof eyeliner and mascara) in a couple swipes. I like to use a little micellar water to make my skin feel a little cleaner. It's nice not to burn through so many cotton pads." โ€”RachelM

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $5.19 or a five-pack for $6.99.

    35. Melamine cleaning sponges for tough-to-tackle stains on furniture. Just add water and you'll make marker scribbles, soap scum, and grease disappear from your chairs, tables, and counters.

    Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love these sponges. I use them in the kitchen, the bathroom, and on the sides of the pool. But the use I like the best is to clean my vinyl wood floors. They get the spots and footprints off quickly without damaging the floor. I've use mops but they didn't remove what everyone had tracked in without pressing down really hard. These work quickly and efficiently." โ€”D. Morales

    BuzzFeed editor Natalie Brown's before-and-after photo showing plump, juicy results of storing produce in produce savers on left vs the wilted strawberry from original container

    This three-piece set comes with one 6.3-cup and two 17.3-cup containers with lids!

    BuzzFeed editor Natalie Brown tested these containers โ€” see above pictures! โ€” and said: "On March 5, I put half of my fresh strawberries in the medium-sized container and left the other half in the clamshell container they came in from the store. And here they are 10 days later, on March 15! The berry I left in the original container's dehydrated and blemished, with wrinkled, crunchy leaves. But the produce-saver strawb's as fresh as it was on day one!" Read more of her Rubbermaid FreshWorks food storage containers review.

    Reviewers also swear by these storage containers that helped keep their fruits and veggies fresh:

    "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." โ€”Laura

    "The quality of fresh produce begins to degrade after two or three days, but I'm not willing to shop more than once a week. These Rubbermaid containers really solved that problem. I purchased fresh leaf lettuce and raspberries, rinsed them thoroughly, spun the lettuce dry, and placed the items in the food saver containers. Eight days later the lettuce is still fresh. The berries remained fresh for five days until they were all eaten. Over the years, I would hate to calculate how much money I've wasted throwing away wilted or spoiled lettuce and rotted berries. The savings from discarded produce will pay for these containers quickly." โ€”M. Hughes

    Promising review: "These organizer bins were just perfect for my needs. I love that I'm not stuck with one configuration, it's so easy to change out a large bin for two or three small bins or vice-versa so the number of different layout possibilities are endless. The bins are super easy to lock together so it's simple to increase the size by interlocking a few more bins or make it smaller by removing a couple bins. The bins are made of a thicker plastic and feel nice and sturdy. I use these in the utility drawer in the kitchen, the drawers in our bathroom vanity and my dressing table. This is my third set and I will be using these to organize some drawers in the garage." โ€”Dee
