    Promising review: "Holy Moly, this thing works!!! I HATE vacuuming my couch because it takes forever and the dog hair doesn’t go anywhere! My sister suggested the Fur-Zoff tool, and I can’t believe how much better it works than the vacuum! This is our (chow/German shepherd mix) dog’s favorite spot on the couch, and this pile took little effort and less than three minutes! I highly recommend!" —Sarah Kaufman-Ihlenfeld

    2. A portable carpet and upholstery cleaner that'll leave you nothing short of *shocked* when it magically restores your furniture and carpet right before your eyes. 😲

    Promising review: "Holy sha- moly. So I bought this when I moved into an apartment with carpet strictly out of precaution. And I finally got the chance to test this baby out after a slightly out-of-hand Christmas party, where I may or may not have polished off a few too many glasses of VERY RED wine, which may or may not have ended up coming right back up later that night. But needless to say — my white carpet had a pretty gruesome red-and-purple paint job. And this little machine SLAYED it. I used the product that comes with it and spent a good half an hour working over the stains with this thing and to this day I can’t even pick out the exact spot where the unfortunate accident happened. AMAZING." —Kaitlyn Jackson

    3. A pair of silicone baking mats to make clean up SO much easier. Yeah, you can use them for cookies and stuff, but did you know they also work for BACON?! I smell some perfectly golden, beautifully crisp slices in your future. 🥓

    Perfectly cooked bacon AND easy cleanup?? More like 1,000,000/10. 🌟

    Promising review: "These are fantastic. I used them at a friend's house and went 'Holy moly I have to have those.' Went out and bought them the same night. They make baking WAY EASIER than before. No more burned undersides!" —Zeta Syanthis

    4. A pack of dishwasher-cleaning tablets because, yes, your dishwasher does need to be cleaned occasionally, despite the fact that its literal job is to wash the things you put inside it.

    These tablets are designed to penetrate, dissolve, and remove odor-causing residue that accumulates inside your dishwasher over time, as well as remove lime and mineral buildup. Using Affresh tablets once a month can prolong the life of your dishwasher and make it more effective at doing its job: cleaning your dishes.

    Promising review: "Our dishwasher was starting to STINK over the summer and we were panicking. I think I saw these somewhere on the internet as people were recommending them so I figured I’d give them a try and holy moly they were fantastic. Super easy to use and left our dishwasher clean and smelling so good. Would definitely recommend this product!!" —Melissa Baxter

    5. A jar of SolarOil Nail & Cuticle Care infused with jojoba oil and vitamin E that'll have you looking like you're ALWAYS rocking a fresh mani. 💅

    Promising review: "Let me paint the picture for you: my nails were sheering off in layers until the tips were brittle and would tear away. Cutting and filling below this thin area didn’t help as the layers would just separate again overnight. I figured my polish and remover were weakening the nails but months without manicure didn’t fix the problem...I bought this months ago and holy moly what a difference...I now use it three to four times over the course of a couple of days in between at-home manicures. I use alcohol to clean the nails before applying polish and acetone to remove — both very harsh but my nails have still grown out beautifully because of the SolarOil!! They’re no longer splitting or splintering. They feel so strong and healthy!! I guarantee that if I ever run out, I’ll be buying more, no hesitation!! There are very few products I’m willing to spend time writing reviews for but man, this is one!!" —A. Unger

    6. And! A pack of washing machine–cleaning tablets because, uh, have you ever cleaned the inside of your washing machine, either?? Didn't think so.

    OK but HOW did that come out of a washing machine!?

    Promising review: "I have an 11-year-old Kenmore 800 washer that I shamefully have never deep cleaned. We recently had to do some maintenance on it and I noticed the crud from under the agitator. So I decided to order this Affresh & holy moly, it loosened up so much junk, my stationary tub was filled with black particles of gunk. I did let it soak for an hour in hot water though, so maybe that helped loosen most of it up. Bottom line, get this, it works!" —Amazonwoman73

    7. A bottle of Lash Princess mascara if you want the false-eyelash effect, but aren't in the mood to go through the hassle of actually applying them.

    Promising review: "Holy moly... I've been using Covergirl Lashblast for about 10 years, thinking it was a great low-priced mascara, until I stumbled across this mascara on Amazon. It. Is. Awesome! Literally one coat and my lashes look as long and full as they did 20 years ago! Lashblast doesn't compare to this sorcery! I'm telling everyone about this mascara!" —groomer74

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    8. A pack of bottle-cleaning tablets to make washing your bottles and tumblers less of a headache. If you're the person who just "rinses out" their reusable bottles with more water, then they're probably full of bacteria and grime. 🤮

    Promising review: "Holy moly...these tabs are amazing. My husband has been using the same Yeti for years to take his coffee to work every day. It had gotten so stained and smelled like old coffee. I put one tablet in and filled the Yeti up with hot water. 30 minute later it was brand new and no longer smelled like coffee. My only regret is that I didn’t buy these tabs sooner." —Danielle

    9. A dry shampoo powder for a totally water-free, low-effort way of washing up. Good for your hair, even better for our planet!

    Promising review: "Holy moly this stuff is awesome. I've tried a number of dry shampoos and they all have issues. Leaves white residue, leaves hair feeling gross like you've got a crap ton of product in it, and so on. Plus, I have thick, dark hair. This stuff rules. The whiteness went away quickly enough, and it made my hair actually look and feel clean. La la love!" —agirlhasnoname

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in two sizes).

    10. A carpet stain remover spray that'll lift away the toughest stains with grace and ease. Red wine? ✔️ Pizza sauce? ✔️ Pet stains? ✔️ You get the idea.

    Promising review: "So my dog got into my makeup bag and got ahold of some liquid lipstick and, needless to say, I flipped out to see my carpets neon orange. It took about an hour and two rolls of paper towels but holy moly! WOW did this stuff work! My mother recommended it to me after using it on minor stains at her house and so glad I got it. Definitely worth the money and it really does disappear right before your eyes like the bottle says!" —jen

    Promising review: "Holy moly, can I give this thing 10 stars?? I have hard water where I live and no amount of scrubbing or lysol bowl cleaner or CLR helped, and I was leery about using citric acid...bought this, opened it the night it came, shut off the water to the toilet tank, and got to scrubbing... Five minutes later my bowl was sparkling clean, like if I'd just installed a new toilet." —CrazyAuntieD

    Get it from Amazon for $11.06.

    12. A Schick Silk Touch-Up Tool that you can use to shape your eyebrows, exfoliate skin, and remove peach fuzz.

    Promising review: "Holy moly does this eat the peach fuzz off with ease. I was worried about skin irritation because it's on my face, but I only got a very slight drag from the blade which didn't cause any redness or any other irritation. It works great, just find the right angle for you and watch the little fine hairs come right off." —Caitlins

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $4.99.

    13. A jar of The Pink Stuff — a vegan, all-purpose cleaning paste that'll magically remove everything from the grease on your stove top to the rust on your patio furniture.

    Promising review: "HOLY MOLY!!! Saw this being used on a few different social media platforms and didn't believe it worked as well as everyone I had to purchase some for myself. Used on the bottom of my pots and pans, which were starting to look grimy, and they are shiny as new!" —Terrie

    Get it from Amazon for $3.99.

    14. A foot exfoliation mask that'll have you *literally* peeling away your dead skin and calluses. Baby-soft feet, here you come! 🦶

    Yes, my friend, that is indeed dead skin you are seeing — NOT the mask! 👀

    Promising review: "Holy moly does this work! I had really dry heels and slightly starting to get cracks in them and no amount of soaking and scrubbing with a pumice stone and moisturizing was doing the job to fix the small cracks. I soaked my feet for 15 mins then I left these boots on for 1.5 hours and rinsed my feet after and put socks on to sleep. No joke, four days later my skin was starting to peel all on my toes and heels. It was gross but sooo satisfying. My feet are in much better condition now. I love these. I'll be doing the second pair that it comes with maybe a week from now to get it fully baby soft" —Del Toro Family

    Get it from Amazon for $27.95.

    15. A vegan exfoliating body scrub you can use to treat your keratosis pilaris (aka KP, "strawberry skin," or "chicken skin"). Whatever you call it, this uses a combo of powerful alpha-hydroxy acids to minimize those bumps on your arms and thighs.

    Promising review: "Wow, I just purchased this TWO days ago, guys, and used it for the first time when it arrived and holy moly, it almost solved 50% of my issue! I get ingrown hairs and rough patches on the back of my thighs and I foresee this working out so well after weeks of usage. It felt so extremely soft and I’m already feeling great about this purchase." —Erica C.

    16. A wood polish and conditioner that'll restore your antiques, dining table, kitchen cabinets, and wood doors to their former glory — which means you can delay having to buy new ones!,

    Promising review: "Holy moly does this stuff work! I have a very expensive teak dining room table that has seen its share of abuse from kids and adults alike over the years. One coat of this stuff and it nearly looks new again! It barely used much of the bottle, and I’m debating buying it in bulk so I’m never without! Buy it! Buy stock in it if possible! This stuff is a miracle!" —Jeni Groenewoud

    Get it from Amazon for $8.98.

    17. A genius Cat Dancer toy guaranteed to keep your little feline entertained for HOURS. It's good to treat ourselves, but it's even MORE important to treat our pets.

    Promising review: "Holy moly! My cat not only loves this toy, she will beg for me to use it with her. She loves it so much that where I store it, if anyone goes near there, she gets starry eyed and starts purring and jumping around." —AntoniaBologna

    Get it from Amazon for $2.99.

    18. A pack of Avarelle Acne Cover Patches that'll zap away zits overnight and help prevent picking, which can lead to scars or ~even more~ acne. You literally just apply the patch and when you wake up the next morning, *poof* — the sebum is sucked right out.

    Promising review: "I have always used ZitSticka and I bought these to give them a try and holy moly! I will not be buying anything else. This works sooo well on my cystic acne, better than anything else has. It’s not a miracle worker, but it’s close. These ones do not have little spikes (like others) and are very satisfying when you take them off! You can physically see all the gunk that it has pulled out! They are very easy to get off the backing, too." —Shea Koepnick

    Get it from Amazon for $8.49.

    19. A scalp massager with soft, thick bristles designed to stimulate blood flow to your scalp, while also cleansing and exfoliating any unwanted dead skin or dried shampoo that might be hanging out up there. It'll also just feel soooo relaxing.

    Promising review: "Holy Moly!! Best item I have bought in a long time. I love to have my scalp massaged and this does the trick. It’s great to put shampoo on and then scrub and massage!! Highly recommended!!" —Stacey Mewing

    Get it from Amazon for $6.98+ (available in three colors).

    20. A clay mask that, last I checked, had an impressive 25,000+ 5-star reviews on Amazon. Its deep-cleansing formula is great for everything from facials to body wraps to foot soaks and'll have your skin feeling renewed in just a matter of minutes.

    ^^ This reviewer even swears by the mask to wash their 4c hair!

    Promising review: "I have only used this once so can’t yet speak to the acne-fighting properties but holy moly this mask is an experience. Your face really does feel like it’s pulsating and then shrinking. Skin looks great after! My pores are noticeably...less noticeable." —Kayla

    21. A jewelry-cleaning pen to keep all your prized possessions looking like you just snagged 'em out of the display case.

    Promising review: "Holy moly! This thing is absolutely mind blowing. I bought it for my right hand ring which routinely stays cloudy. I popped the stick opened, brushed it for a minute or so, rinsed my ring and BAM, it was BRILLIANTLY shimmering again. I could NOT get over the results. Amazing value and product in a compact tube. This was the best ring cleaner I have ever used. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking to try it." —Blake Hunt

    Get it from Amazon for $7.91.

    22. A collagen hair treatment that's nothing short of magic in a bottle. Just apply it all over your hair, wait 10 minutes, wash it out, and... BOOM! No more frizz or grease.

    Promising review: "Holy moly. This stuff is AH-mazing. To be free of bad stuff, smell amazing, leave my hair SMOOTH and SOFT (did I emphasize that enough), and leave my hair drying quicker with it looking damn near perfect. Well folks, what else is there to say? Buy it. Don’t think about it. Just do it. This coming from a super-picky hair girl!" —Aubsmommmy

    Get it from Amazon for $14.

    24. A multipurpose cleanser and polishing powder that'll have you hosting your own TV show called Extreme Makeover: Dirty Kitchen Edition on your Insta story. It works great on cookware, countertops, appliances, cooktops, faucets, name it.

    The cleanser is nonabrasive, bleach free, and effective on most surfaces in the kitchen, bathroom, and outdoors.

    Promising review: "We moved into an old house with a porcelain bathtub, and while it wasn't disgusting, it also wasn't something I felt like I would take a bath in. So I bought a couple different abrasive pumice stones, and that seemed to take the stains off...after a lot of scrubbing. So, not feeling like putting all of that elbow grease into it, I just left it. Months went by, and I finally bought a can of this stuff to clean the sinks and toilets because I ran out of Comet. After cleaning the bathroom sink, I thought, 'Why not try it on the tub?' Holy moly, after minimal scrubbing, the stains were gone. The tub is white again. I was going to refinish the tub eventually, but I don't think I have to as long as I have a can of this stuff on hand. Mind blown." —Biscuits & Schlitz

    25. A blind cleaner brush because those lil' plastic things can get suuuuper D-U-S-T-Y!


    Promising review: "I just used this for the first time. I knew my blinds were dirty, but holy moly — they were embarrassingly dirty! This tool is super easy to use and does a great job! One of the covers was sewn a little too tightly but still works. Great product for a great price." —phyllis s.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+.

    26. A rust stain remover, perfect for anything with an orange hue that probably shouldn't have one. 🍊

    Promising review: "HOLY MOLY! I had been using Lime-A-Way for the iron-stained shower/tub but found it to be taking off the top clear protective coat. I wanted something that could get rid of the yellow/brown staining, but kept the tub and shower shiny. THIS STUFF IS AMAZING! I wish I would have known about it sooner. I just used it on our toilet that had 1.5 years of rust stain I hadn’t been able to get out... It looks brand new!" —Amy Holladay

    Get a bottle on Amazon for $4.98.

    27. A jetted tub cleaner because you have no idea what's hiding in those jets of yours. Better to just do the dirty work now, rather than find some unwanted surprises the next time you're trying to take a relaxing evening bath.

    Promising review: "Holy moly this stuff WORKS! We built a new house a year ago, so my jetted tub hasn't had many uses, mostly from washing our two dogs. I thought my jets probably weren't really dirty. I WAS SO WRONG!!!! I put this in and ran the jets and so much brown, nasty stuff came out!!! I will be using this often! If you have a Jacuzzi tub, you need this!!" —TaylorS01
