    1. A La Roche-Posay gel cleanser complete with salicylic acid that'll destroy blackheads and whiteheads, leaving your face clean 'n' clear.

    larocheposayusa / Via instagram.com, amazon.com

    It's also surprisingly gentle enough to use twice a day, meaning you'll be able to attack acne in the a.m. *and* the p.m. without making your complexion overly dry.

    Promising review: "Do you have cystic adult acne? Then buy this. And the clarifying solution and the duo. You can get a three-piece trial set. It's amazing. Changed my life. After years of trying everything this was the miracle worker. Give it about a week to notice improvement and then after a month others started noticing. I have now been using this for 2.5 years and have had great skin ever since." —S. H. Johnson

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    2. A makeup brush-cleaning shampoo, because — shocker — you need to clean those!

    Amazon, Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "Holy crud!! This stuff works miracles!!! I rarely wash my makeup brushes. I use a liquid foundation. I may wash them once every two or three months when I think about it. Usually I’d have to let them sit and soak in water/brush cleaner mix for a few hours before I can really wash them to get the funky stuff out. This product! Wow! Life-changing!! It cleaned them so quickly!! No soaking needed!! Didn’t even have to rinse and reapply! I did use a silicone mat to help but oh my gosh!! My brush." —Megan

    Get it from Amazon for $4.79.

    3. Rubbermaid's power scrubbing brush, for when you want to give your grout an all-inclusive spa treatment and bring it back to its squeaky-clean glory.

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed, amazon.com

    Promising review: "The Power Scrubber is life-changing. I bought it several weeks ago with the intention of doing a deep clean 'sometime soon.' After an overflowing toilet incident, I had to make sure it got done right away. MY GROUT HAS NEVER BEEN CLEANER. I used some Comet and spray cleaner to get the job done, but this made short work for what typically requires 'a lot of elbow grease' and a spent toothbrush. With this tool, you really know you're getting in there and it's clean. I can't recommend this enough — I've already mentioned it to a neighbor, and a few friends, including one fanatical cleaner. We all agreed, it's such a necessary, perfect product." —Jojo

    Get it from Amazon for $20.25.

    4. Velvet hangers that may seem ordinary but'll transform your closet from one that says "hot mess" to "oh yes."

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love how little space these take up. My closet is pretty small so getting these types of hangers was a must. Clothes don’t slip from the hangers which is nice because with the plastic ones, my tank tops and dresses would always fall off. You can even hang pants too. " —Amazonian

    Get them from Amazon for $18.80+ (available in packs of 30, 50, or 100 and three colors)

    5. A cleaning pen, so all of your jewels (whether they're real or not) will be so sparkly everyone will wonder where you got 'em from.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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 my full 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." —Ay

    Get it from Amazon for $8.11.

    6. Or an ultrasonic jewelry-cleaning machine that'll (gently) shake, rattle, and roll your favorite silver or gold pieces into shiny perfection.

    amazon.com

    My husband gifted me this cleaner and I'm a huge fan. All you have to do is add a little dish soap and water to the machine, place your jewelry into the basket, and set the timer. Before you know it your fave necklace looks new again!

    Promising review: "I've had it for two weeks now, and cleaned all of my jewelry twice. Both times I realized how gross jewelry gets when I wear it every day. This machine gets it so sparkly again in just a couple of minutes, with just water and ultrasonic waves, no nasty chemicals." —Infractus

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    7. A bottle of Glossier's Solution – it'll gently remove dead skin via chemical exfoliation to rid your skin of pesky pimples. Before long you'll be taking ALL the selfies you want without giving it a second thought.

    Glossier

    This product includes a blend of three acid groups: Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA), and Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA). It is also hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested, paraben-free, and approve for all skin types. And check out our deep dive on Glossier's Solution here!

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this! I've wanted to try it for the longest time after seeing what it did to a friend's acne. I've only been using it for a week, but I'm already blown away by the results. I use it at night and when I wake up in the morning my normally oily and red skin is smooth and even, and any pimples from the night before are just gone. I can't recommend this product enough this is a must-have!" —Katie

    Get it from Glossier for $24.

    8. A pet stain and odor remover, so when your furry friend gets a little too excited that you just got home and decides to pee all over your shoes, it's sort of OK.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff works sooooo well. I have tried many other brands of pet stain remover, and this one is definitely the best. I have two indoor cats with hairball issues; they are often spitting up hairballs, or stomach acid only before or after the passing of the hairball. (Sorry for the TMI.) Of course, they only want to do this on the carpet and rugs. This stain remover effectively removes the bodily fluid, hairball, etc., with a nice, fresh minty scent and no sticky residue. I keep a bottle upstairs and downstairs so I don't have to go hunting for it during those 2 a.m. hairball vomiting sessions (because, of course, that's the only time they want to throw up)." —Heather Coburn-Schill

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97+ (available in 32 oz. or one gallon and two scents).

    9. A bottle of wood polish and conditioner to make your antiques, cabinets, and tables shine ~bright like a diamond~.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn-out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs that jumped up and scratched places, we also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were, and several other areas that were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a Magic Eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let it sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand new. I'm buying a couple more so we can finish our cabinets and wood paneling. We're so glad we found this product." —Kris

    Get it from Amazon for $14.07.

    10. A ammonia-free cleaning solution, perfect for freshening up any gold, platinum, or diamond jewels.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've used this on my wedding set (platinum and diamonds) and on a white gold ring with an aquamarine stone and it worked great! Got a better clean with this cleaner than when I take my rings to the jeweler. The bristles could be slightly firmer on the brush, but that is my only complaint. The jar has a basket with stick-like handle that holds the brush, which makes for easy, safe cleaning of jewelry. Can't wait to clean other items!" —Mrs. B

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    11. All-natural biodegradable cleaning tablets that'll remove tough stains and odors from your favorite reusable water bottle — no more "does this water taste weird?" moments.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Finished using it five minutes ago and it’s the best! My husband uses a Stanley thermos daily to take coffee to work. He tries to remember to rinse it out every day, but that doesn’t always happen. I got the package today, filled the thermos with water, dropped in a tablet, and let it sit. I promptly forgot about it for a few hours. Initially, I was disappointed when I dumped the water, as it was barely tinged brown. Then I put fresh water in, covered the top, shook it, and OMG. The crap that came out was disgusting, yet fascinating. I looked in the thermos and saw almost nothing but sparkly silver! There was a little crud left in the top third of the thermos, but it’s a really tall one, so I wasn’t surprised. Got the bottle brush, swished twice, and bam! All clean! No fumes, no smell, no nothing, just clean. I used to struggle cleaning it with baking soda, vinegar, the brush, soap, and elbow grease. Screw that. I will forever use only these tablets! Here’s to better tasting (and way less gross) coffee!" —BranchingOut

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $8+ (available in packs of 12 or 36).

    12. A bottle of Tend Skin Solution you can use to reduce inflammation caused by shaving or ingrown hairs. Buh bye, razor burn.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I got waxed down there for five years straight and the lady that did it used this stuff afterwards. It work so well I went out and bought some. Ever since then I haven't had one ingrown hair (in six years). I recommend it highly and I'll never use anything else. It really is a miracle solution. Now I just keep it in the shower with me and dab a little on after every shave. Highly recommended for any type of skin." —Tennessee Fresh

    Get it from Amazon for $22.96 or Subscribe & Save for $21.81.

    13. A magical hair catcher that'll save your relationship and keep your shower looking cleaner than ever.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "No seriously — this is amazing. I have long hair and recently had a baby. It's a wonder I still have any hair based on the clumps I see falling out on a regular basis. This means the poor tub drain is getting clogged all the time, and we're spending ridiculous amounts of time trying to clear it out. I figured if this even worked to catch half of my hair then it would be worth its salt. Holy moly. When they say it catches every hair they aren't kidding. We clean it off about twice A WEEK! And when they say it's easy to clean, they are right again. A swipe with toilet paper and the hair blob comes right off. I've already told so many people about this product because I love it so much. Fantastic!!!" —sasamo

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in six colors).

    14. OxiClean stain remover, a tried-and-true classic formula you can use to clean your clothes, carpets, and furniture.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I feel fortunate to have found the 'powers' of OxiClean products in the late 1980s. It was advertised on a TV infomercial and I was lured in by the promises of what it could do for carpets. I am hooked to this day by its results. Believe it or not, I recall the morning I first tried it. I ran upstairs and woke up my husband with excitement. We had tried most every carpet cleaner on the market with no luck. It was amazing, cleaning stains that were in the carpet when we bought the home a year before. I haven't had the need to try any other in almost 30 years now." —Lady in Midlo

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98 or Subscribe & Save for $12.33.

    15. A night serum, designed to help your skin become smoother and more luminous while you get your beauty rest.

    Biossance

    Promising review: "I first was convinced to try this due to testimony and photos shared through reviews, so now it's my turn! This is now the second bottle I've gone through and I know now to keep it stocked. My skin scars quite easily, even though I do not pick or pop my acne. I had a bad break out over the winter months and was desperate for a solution for my dark spots. This product really changed my skin overall, I feel much more even-toned now and I haven't worn foundation since February. I saw results within the first week but it's really just gotten better and better with time. I apply this at night after cleansing with the CeraVe moisturizing cleanser, and then I use CeraVe daily moisturizer. I've been told in the last few weeks that my skin was glowing! I swear it's because of this stuff, I tell all my friends about it. Highly recommend!" —Tatiana S.

    Get it from Biossance for $62.

    16. Clip-in synthetic hair extensions that'll give you the luscious locks you've always dreamed of with minimal effort.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Okay, so I am very picky about hair extensions. I've spent hundreds of dollars on numerous sets, and have never been completely satisfied. UNTIL NOW! These are BY FAR my favorite — and for such an amazing price! If you're worried that this deal is too good to be true (because I was) then stop worrying! And buy these extensions. Also, I have very short hair and they still look great! They're very full and luscious. And you can straighten them! I'm very happy!" —Makenzie Long

    Get a set of five clips from Amazon for $9.99 (available in four lengths and 22 colors).

    17. Or an anti-dandruff shampoo, so you can change your wardrobe over to your all-black winter attire without fear of flakes dusting your shoulders.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I wish I discovered this product earlier. Took me six months of suffering from severe dandruff and white spots on my face. I was a week away from a visit to the dermatologist. After trying a lot of products and creams that didn't work, I decided to give it a try. And with just one wash, my life was changed. This is my only shampoo now. Been using it for almost a year now and no more white spots on my face (itchy, flaky, and terrible) or the worst, thick itchy dandruff." —Beverly Ramirez

    Get it from Amazon for $14.84 or Subscribe & Save for $14.10.

    18. A natural tarnish remover and polishing cream you can use on all precious metals, a must for when that Tiffany bracelet you got in middle school comes back in style.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "This stuff really works. I had used a liquid sterling silver cleaner and it didn't get rid of all the tarnish and left my jewelry with no shine. (It had been a while since I wore or cared for the items). Sparkle Bright is a weird, solid tan gel that when you follow directions, you can see the improvements immediately. There's a lot in this jar, but when I run out I will buy this product again." —LeAnna

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95.

    19. A hard water stain-remover because you shouldn't want to shudder each time you reach to turn on your shower.

    amazon.com

    It can also work on toilets, tiles, and shower doors — anything that's been affected by hard water!

    Promising review: "If you want the clear spotless glass door this is it. I’ve tried everything on the internet. Lemon, vinegar, car wash window cleaning product, etc. You name it. And nothing worked as I hoped. I can’t believe how long it took me to discover this product. What a life changing moment for me! I was so stressed out about the glass doors in my house — we have three bathrooms. It’s so hard to keep them looking and feeling clean. But now I know how. My shower looks brand-new again!" —Leonardzoo

    Get it from Amazon for $18.97.

    20. A bottle of Mavala Stop with a bitter (but harmless!) taste that'll help you not only kick your cuticle biting habit, but leave you with gorgeous long nails.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "It's a miracle! I am 45 years old and have tried every product over the years — my mom used to put everything imaginable on my fingernails to keep them out of my mouth, my grandma tried to pay me to grow my fingernails out, but still, here I was at 45 with horrible nails. This has been a miracle. I can't describe the taste but will just say that it makes me not want my hands anywhere near my face. Yes, it is difficult to eat finger food with this on — I went to Florida recently and had to have my husband peel my shrimp for me. :-) But, it is a small price to pay to break this habit." —Laurie S.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.50.

    21. A rust stain remover spray that'll help you transform your guest room's bathroom into one worthy of being shown on Million Dollar Listing.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The photos speak for themselves. When we bought our home there was no water softener and years of iron buildup. We tried so many things on our shower. Nothing worked. We were convinced we’d be stuck until we renovated the bathroom. The Iron Out worked wonders. I still can’t believe it. We had to let it sit for about an hour. It then dissolved and wiped right off. Definitely use in a ventilated area if possible." —M. Gilardi

    Get it from Amazon for $10.31.

    22. A ceramic cooktop cleaning kit to keep your stove looking brand new. Burnt-on grease? I don't know her.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "We, regrettably, had not properly cleaned our glass stove top for six months. We’d wipe and clean with generic products we had, but nothing removed the deep stains. It was not properly maintained by the previous tenants either, so I wasn’t hopeful we’d get it back to its original appearance. It looked horrible. My mom recommended this product to me and she uses it faithfully. With help of the razor, this product completely transformed our stove top. It looks like it was just installed. I’m so happy and relieved. This will be a must-have item in our kitchen for years to come." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $18.98.

    23. Ear drops that use a microfoam to soften and remove excess wax easily and pain-free.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was skeptical at first but this stuff really works! My ear was clogged and I couldn’t hear anything and wanted to save myself a trip to the doctors office. I put 10 drops in twice a day and left it in for 20 minutes each time and on the 5th application the flood gates open and I can hear again! It’s amazing all the stuff I wasn’t hearing before!! I highly recommend this product." —Virginia Whitehead

    Get it from Amazon for $5.98.

    24. A Drillbrush Power Scrubber you can attach to your power drill and completely change the way you clean your bathroom.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have NO idea why this product would ever have less than a five-star review. It is a great brush set — I used all three in an effort to get some mildew stains off the grout in my shower. NOTHING worked, but a bit of Soft Scrub (bleach) and these brushes worked like a charm! I then used the larger brush on the floor of the shower, and to remove some soap scum from the glass shower doors. WOW! Where has this been all my life?! Excellent product, works like it should in conjunction with your power drill." —SomeGirl

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in six styles).

    25. Batiste dry shampoo that'll save the day and help you get out the door with fabulous hair you may or may not have forgotten to wash the night before because you were too busy doing OTHER adult things like binge-watching Gilmore Girls.

    amazon.com, batiste_us / Via instagram.com

    Promising review: "This dry shampoo has changed my life for the better. I’ve tried every other brand on the market (even the expensive ones), and this one works THE BEST. It does leave a bit of white residue, but to combat that, I spray it on my hair at night before I go to bed. It absorbs the oil, and then I don’t have the residue." —Jaimie Krause

    Get it from Amazon for $9.38 or Subscribe & Save for $8.91.

    26. An eight-pack of Mr. Clean Magic Erasers, so all you'll have to do is add water then start attacking all the dirty surfaces in your home to see some major results.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Sing it with meeee: 🎶 Mr Clean will clean your whole house and every room that's in itttttt 🎶.

    Promising review: "For years I have heard about the Magic Eraser. From friends and family, even co-workers. Not sure what took me so long to try it out, but when I did, all I can say is 'WOW!!!' I had embedded stains from makeup and who knows what on the bathroom sink (which I scrubbed with baking soda, even softscrub with bleach, and the stains didn't come all the way out). ONE TRY with the Magic Eraser and BAM! Stains gone. Then I decided to try it on the black toaster oven, where I accidentally left a loaf of bread and the plastic melted into the top. I washed it, rubbed it and used everything I could think of, but that thin layer of plastic wouldn't budge. In comes the Magic Eraser and it came off right away. No kidding. The name says it all, because this stuff is truly magic!" —GDB

    27. A stainless-steel cleaner that'll make your appliances so shiny you won't be able to stop staring at your own reflection in them (spoiler: you look GOOD!).

    amazon.com

    This plant-based cleaner will remove streaks, smudges, and fingerprints from all stainless steel surfaces — sounds very therapeutic to me!

    Promising review: "THIS Therapy Premium Stainless Steel Cleaner is AMAZING. New dishwasher and and a hungry dog are NOT compatible! Our small dog, 12 pounds, had a habit of stretching up her front paws and scratching her nails on the dishwasher while her food was prepared. Not even days had gone by and the new dishwasher had little thin claw scratches all down the front. I had stopped her by placing a footstool to block her, but other family members had not, despite my instructions. I tried several cleaners and had resigned to having a scratched appliance. But ONE try with the Therapy cleaner — yes, a *miracle*. The scratches cannot be seen at all — polished right out of sight. The dishwasher looks even better than when fresh out of the box — it is gleaming. I eagerly shared the success with my kitchen remodeler, who installs many appliances, and I hope others can restore their stainless products. Try it!" —L. Peterson

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    28. A Makeup Eraser cloth you'll wonder how you lived this long without after seeing how it magically takes ALL of your makeup off with just a few swipes.

    BuzzFeed

    I have one of these bad boys and they even take off Kylie Lip Kits — a true feat.

    Promising review: "YESS!!! I cannot LIVE without this product. I have always had pretty bad acne and every product I’d use would result in either a break out or just constant irritation. This product can be used with JUST WATER to get literally all of your makeup off with zero skin irritations! I use it in the AM and PM and one rag will usually last me a full seven days before needing a wash. I have about three or four of these because I cannot live without them. My acne has become a lot better by using this as opposed to cleaners and crazy products for my skin. Who knew a clean rag and water could actually do so much?!?" —Nina Aristo

    Get it from Amazon for $20 (available in a variety of styles).

    Psst! This won for the mid-priced best makeup remover on BuzzFeed Reviews, too!

    29. A USB-powered defuzzer you can use to remove all the pills from that oversized sweater you refuse to retire from your wardrobe. Now you'll look presentable and still feel cozy.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing is just spectacular! I originally bought it for my daughter for her dorm room just because of how annoying pills are and fuzzies on clothing and sweaters, but this has absolutely changed my life — I swear! It removes everything except the hair from the animals (who won't be present in her dorm room anyways), but once the fuzzies are gone you just need a long roller. No joke! Chaffing on pants, pills on sweaters, any sort of unwanted fuzzies are just GONE! I plan on buying another one for my wife for here at home. This thing is great! I would highly recommend this." —Daniel Jacques

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98.

    30. A foot file to transform your scaly dragon-like heels into soft soles that'll be so smooth you'll want to wear backless shoes just to let the world see how ~grate~ they look.

    Amazon, 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 — two minutes! — 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." —LBK

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    31. A squeegee-broom contraption with an extendable handle, in case you ever have the urge to rake the inevitable fallen hair from your carpet.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    What? Like I'm the only one who finds their own hair all over the house?

    Promising review: "This thing just plain works. We got a mature golden retriever last year and were told he didn't shed. Then in the spring he started shedding badly. We were tired of hair everywhere and somehow I realized that dragging my shoe across the carpet balled the hair up. I found this product on a whim one day and knew it had to be better than my shoe! I ordered it and it was tough at first. The bristles pulled the hair up but then caught the tufts and spread them around. I found that using short quick strokes with the rake turned upside down got the best results. The backside is more like a squeegee and helps pull the hair up in long rolls and keeps the hair in one big pile." —Nick V.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in three styles).

    32. Or a pet hair remover with a unique patented brush design, so you'll be able to invite guests to sit down without fear of them being covered head-to-toe in your dog's hair.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We live in a household that contains two humans, two dogs, and two cats. It's a real Noah's Ark furnished with a black sectional couch. Our dogs absolutely hate the vacuum. So much so they will attack the cleaner head with their vicious bite even before we power it on. This makes the task of cleaning our couch extremely unpleasant and nearly impossible. Thanks to Chom Chom, we no longer have this problem! With a simple, quick, SOUNDLESS sweep, we're able to keep our couch pet-hair-free in blissful peace. This tool does an amazing job picking up pet hair but not so much with crumbs. We were so impressed, we gifted these as Christmas presents for all of our pet-loving friends." —Magpie

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    33. A purple toning shampoo you can count on to actually do its job and remove any unwanted brassiness from your light hair in only one to three minutes!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm not one to leave reviews, but this product deserves it! Holy cow! I was going to go into the salon to brighten my hair up, but after discovering this product I cancelled my appointment. I'm totally in love! This shampoo is not drying at all and just after two washes I achieved my desired results! I can't recommend it enough!" —Rachael

    34. A Remington curling wand, perfect for anyone who has been too nervous to try and master this hot tool and doesn't want to commit to a product they're *not sure* they're going to get a lot of use out of. Spoiler: you will!

    AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    Promising review: "Where has this product been all my life? I have very straight hair and thought it was unable to hold a curl. Usually my hair would lose the curl within an hour or two, leaving a chunky hairsprayed mess. With this product, my hair holds the curl all day and more-or-less the next day as well, and only requires a light misting of flexible hairspray. This is probably because it has several heat settings and most cheap curlers do not heat as hot as this one does. I use the highest setting (400-something degrees), set it with flexible hold hairspray and it works great. I now curl my hair all the time, at least once a week." —Blaire

    Get it from Amazon for $20.95+ (available in two sizes).

    35. A handheld steamer that'll take the wrinkles out of your clothes in a snap. The only downside is your parents will have to find something new to criticize you about since you'll look crisp 'n' clean at all times.

    Promising review: "I have never successfully ironed anything in my life! I have only attempted to iron something once so I constantly live in wrinkled clothes....or I did. Now with this amazing steamer I don't have to worry about that anymore, and it's so quick and easy to use! Fill with water, warm, and point at clothes that need some work done. It's so quick too that I am able to use it quick before leaving for work. Plug it in, and it instantly begins to heat the water. And then it takes only moments to steam out the wrinkles. It also comes with a travel bag! So glad I bought this!! Now I will look way more put-together!" —Sarah Smith

    36. Carpet shampoo to get rid of any stain or smell left behind by any adorable child or furry friend.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "After reading the reviews I thought I could at least try it, and holy smokes, this is a miracle cleaner!!! I think I have tried every cleaner on the market for pet stains and nothing ever really works on my carpets. Even if I get it off the top, it somehow comes back up. My crazy dogs hate the rain and they have one spot that they always go on when they decide they are not going outside. I have cleaned the spot probably 100 times. I cleaned this area one time with this cleaner and my spot steam cleaner and it is completely gone! The stain and smell are 100% gone, not just covered up like before, completely and absolutely gone. Miracle cleaner for sure!" —PLLane

    37. Acne absorbing cover patches that'll blend in with any skin tone and are gentle enough for any skin type, so you can go about your day without worrying that it looks like you're growing a second head on your face.

    Avarelle's pimple patches are formulated with tea tree oil and calendula, which is said to heal and shrink zits overnight. A single pack comes with 40 patches in a variety of sizes to fit any pimple you've got.

    Promising review: "I’ve tried so many brands of pimple spots, and these are hands-down the best on the market. I’m a performer at Walt Disney World, and a clear complexion is required. Last night, I put these on a few acne problems (a small cyst, a Whitehead, and a pimple I shouldn’t have picked and has been a bump for about three weeks now.) I just woke up and am writing this review in disbelief. THEY'RE FLAT! Gone! All of them! I could cry I’m so happy. The packaging is also ideal, because it allows you to conveniently and easily peel the stickers off without stretching them out or folding them back on themselves. Do yourself and your complexion a huge favor! Have these on hand for a stubborn zit when you really need help. Make sure you apply them to completely clean and dry skin." —Caitlyn

    38. A jetted-tub cleaner, you can use to assure you never find yourself soaking in filth while trying to catch up on your me-time.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This product has changed my cleaning process FOREVER. It's extremely satisfying, disgusting, and actually works. It removes gunk you didn't even know EXISTED. Run, don't walk, to order this.

    Promising review: "My wife told me we had to really clean what appeared to be a clean tub. We moved into a house where the previous home owners were not the best cleaners. She had me get this product based on reviews. My one complaint is the label needs to be bigger. OH YUK is not enough. OH YUK YOU MIGHT BARF might be better. I think someone had a bowel movement in my bath tub plumbing and this is the only product that takes it out. It appears we have seven years of crud in the pipes. The feces colored film that this products gets out of your pipes will make you a believer. The first use it released so much toot film that we felt like we needed to have another round of cleaning. After losing a bet I had to stick my hand in the water to drain it. Wiping off all the released film we filled the tub again. Just turning the jets the water seemed to be clear. However before I was going to ever get into this thing I wanted to do a second round of YUK treatment. Once again in full force it appeared that someone had the squirts in tub as sludge came flowing out of the pipes. We're going to have to run this a few times before we use the tub. Remember those pink tablets that you use to get in grade school to show you all the plaque that was on your teeth..... The product is like that for you tub." —Paul Southwick

    39. A deep cleaning brush set, essential for helping you get the grime out of your grout, shower doors, and other hard to reach spaces.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, these brushes! I usually used tooth brushes to help me get a good clean in small areas, but I found myself really having to scrub with them which did damage to the brushes. And when that happened, the brushes were then no good to me. I was moving out of my old house and had to get it cleaned to Military Specs as it was base housing, and I needed something to really help me get it cleaned. I found this brushes and thought those might help me with the grouted areas, so for $6 I thought it couldn't hurt. As soon as I started using them, I just couldn't stop! I used them for grout, corners, cabinets, hard to reach places around my kitchen/bathroom faucets, around the base of my toilets, the inside of my windows, you name it and I cleaned it with them! I have already recommended them to everyone I know and will continue to do so. These are one of my new favorite cleaning tools. I LOVE them, and cannot praise them enough!!" —Katelynn C.

    Promising review: "I have four kids (so not a lot of time) and like seven people’s worth of stubbornly wavy/curly and long hair on my head. It’s a giant pain in the butt and takes a lot of time. Except today when I tried this! Unbelievable easy and I didn’t even have to go back over it with a flat iron! Dry in record time and looks naturally straight! (None of those odd bumps) I can’t wait to dry my girls hair after a nighttime bath too. I almost never write reviews but thanks to this magical thing I had the time!" —Megan Fanelli
