    Amazon, Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    My husband and I recently moved into our first house — when I tell you I have used some form of Bar Keepers Friend to tackle every crevice of this house please know that I'm not exaggerating. I've used it to revive the floor of our bathroom (see above), the shower, the tub, the entire kitchen sink, the outside of the washing machine and dryer....the list goes on. It's incredible how effective this product is in just a few moments!

    Promising review: "This stuff is magic. It took a stain out of my sink with ease. It also made my stainless steel appliances look brand new! I also have a gas stove that had baked crap on it that I couldn’t get off. I tried every trick in the book. I used this stuff with a little elbow grease and it finally came off. We are listing our house and this product is essential." —Katie

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99.

    2. A pouch filled with eucalyptus and lavender to leave your shower smelling like a luxurious day at the spa. I can't imagine anything more pleasant, TBH.

    EcualyptusBlooms / Etsy

    I've personally hung up a bundle of eucalyptus branches in my shower and can confirm it really is a game-changer — it makes every shower experience feel refreshing. So, I can only imagine how lovely this sachet is in its place. A lot less mess, but all the benefits! Added bonus? EucalyptusBlooms is a woman-owned small business based in Charlotte, North Carolina.

    Promising review: "LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product! The second I opened our mailbox the smell from the triple-sealed mailing package was simply heavenly! What a treat! Eucalyptus Blooms is THE best!" —Robbie Weber

    Get three pouches from EcualyptusBlooms on Etsy for $12.79.

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

    Promising review: "I hardly ever write reviews but this thing is so amazing I had to share. With every shower I take, I shed a TON of hair and stick it to the wall so that no hair goes down my drain. I thought this method was working out well but my drain was continuing to stop up. I figured it must be my sister's fault since I was so good about not letting any hairs go down the drain, but I went ahead ordered the TubShroom after seeing advertisements on Facebook. I got this thing and after only two showers, it collected a crap ton of my hair that I didn't catch. It really is so easy to install and wipe away the hair, exactly like the videos. Awesome invention and I'm super happy with this purchase!" —Megan K.

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

    4. An adjustable stainless-steel shower caddy, so you can neatly store your overflow of products without crowding the edges of your tub.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    I have one of these bad boys and I couldn't be more thrilled with it. My husband was able to adjust it so it's not too tall for me (I'm quite short). There's very little ventilation in my bathroom so I've been fighting to keep gross gunk off all of my bottles/ the edges of my tub — this has been a huge help! My bottles no longer sit in standing water. Simplehuman products never fail to impress me.

    Promising review: "I’m really happy with these. I have one in each shower and they’re great for my particular issues that made normal shower caddies problematic. In one shower we have textured tile and the enclosed adhesive tabs work well for that shower. In the other shower those aren’t needed: the suction works well too! I’m so happy to have these now... I’ve been going crazy with the variety of cheap solutions I’ve tried to employ. Spend the money: soooo worth it!" —Acacia

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99+ (available in four sizes).

    5. A rust-stain remover spray that'll help you transform your overused apartment bathroom into one worthy of a million-dollar home.

    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 $4.98.

    6. 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,

    Promising review: "Last night I was reborn. What is the cause of this renewed zest for life, you might ask? It was the use of the Rubbermaid Reveal Power Scrubber on my shower grout. It elevated a simple baking soda-and-water solution to alchemical proportions. My pink-tiled shower, the one that came with my scummy apartment, the one that never looks clean no matter how many hours of backbreaking labor I put in, now looks bright, clean, and full of promise. An otherwise disgusting and dated purely utilitarian part of my home is now art. TL;DR: This this is absolutely incredible." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $17.38.

    7. A simple shower curtain treated to resist mildew that'll have any minimalist swooning (mainly because they'll *hopefully* have to clean their shower curtain less).

    a white shower curtain with a yellow chevron design on it

    Promising review: "You can't beat the price of this shower curtain and it also looks very nice. Fabric/plastic-like material is perfect, keeps water from leaking out of the shower, you can use this shower curtain alone without an additional plastic curtain liner. Dries quickly. It comes with basic hooks which you can use or use you own hooks if they fit small holes. Very happy with this purchase!" —MKB

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available with or without a liner and 17 styles).

    8. A bergamot-scented bath soak to help soothe your dry skin and help you unwind after a looooong day.

    Oui the People

    Oui the People is a Black woman-owned small business that primarily sells shaving products in addition to bath and skincare products.

    Promising review: "This is my treat to myself after a long day or a tough workout from home. Fill a hot bath with my Bath Soak, grab some wine, light my bathroom with a candle or three, and feel my body and mind unknot. It helps treat my sore muscles, makes my skin feel great, and that bergamot scent is the BEST. It’s a several times a week must." —Kate N

    Get it from Oui the People for $28.

    9. A pumice cleaning stone you can count on to make your toilet actually sparkle like a porcelain throne.


    Promising review: "Our toilets are old and have hard water stains in them. I clean them (admittedly less than) religiously, but I could never get the hard water stains off. So I thought I would give this rock on a stick a try, before I ended up smashing all our toilets in frustration and embarrassment. My rock on a stick arrived and, in the words of John Oliver, PRAISE BE. THIS THING IS A MIRACLE-WORKER. Requires very little scrubbing, my dang toilets look brand spanking new! Seriously! I am thinking about inviting the Queen over for a nice tinkle. Because that is how clean my toilets are." —octomeggo

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in packs of one or two).

    10. A luxurious chenille bathroom rug, because if you can't recall the last time you cleaned your throne room, it may be time to replace the one you currently own.,

    Promising review: "I wanted a bathroom rug that didn’t slip around, was soft, and that my Roomba could vacuum instead of just dragging and pushing it around. And if it kept my husband’s long hair on his side of the bathroom, even better. This is it! Bonus: it’s machine-washable! Can’t beat the value for the money." —S. Lee

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in five sizes and 21 styles).

    11. A three-shelf organizer that'll conveniently fit over your toilet, making it a lovely place to put your candles and tissue box and a great way to make your entire bathroom feel more neat 'n' tidy.

    Promising review: "Fits perfectly in my tiny bathroom. There was a lot to assemble but the instructions are simple and I was able to complete it in 20 minutes." —Candace

    Get it from Wayfair for $29.99.

    12. A Clorox ToiletWand that you can use then toss away — say SEE YA' to that gross toilet brush hiding in the corner of your bathroom.


    I own and cherish this product. It's a dream knowing the "brush" is fresh and hasn't been intimate with the inside of my toilet prior to my picking it up again.

    Promising review: "I've always hated the idea on storing a drippy, germ-filled toilet brush under the sink and this product totally solved the issue. The heads snap on and pop off easily without the need to touch them. Was very pleasantly surprised at how well the heads scrub the bowl, didn't expect them to be that durable. I originally bought one for the master bath and loved it so much I bought one for each bathroom." —Jessamine

    Get it from Target for $9.19.

    13. A shower door cleaner to remove any stubborn hard water spots that have already dried on your shower door, so you can start fresh and actually relax while rinsing off instead of focusing on the fact there are water marks every where.

    Promising review: "This product works beautifully. I tried a lot of products to remove the hard water from my glass shower. I have to admit the first time I used it with a cloth it was not very effective. The second time I used a nonabrasive sponge for glass, it turned out beautiful just like the first day the glass was installed." —EJP

    Get it from Amazon for $14.74.

    14. A decorative bronze mirror you can place on your vanity and let luxury wash over you whenever you use it to apply your lipstick or pluck your eyebrows.

    Get it from Anthropologie for $148.

    15. A squeegee that'll prevent water marks from drying on your glass shower door and give you the opportunity to pretend you're a badass window cleaner in a massive skyscraper.

    a model holding the squeegee

    I have this exact squeegee and it really does a fantastic job at keeping my shower squeaky clean.

    Promising review: "The large suction cup that holds this squeegee in the shower works perfectly. And unlike many metal squeegees, this one is very lightweight, so it will not pull itself off the wall. The blade is strong enough to remove water from my shower doors, and wide enough to allow me to get each door in three easy swipes. For the longest time I resisted purchasing a squeegee, but realized that constantly scrubbing my shower doors to remove soap buildup is far too time-consuming. Using this squeegee does not prevent me from having to clean my shower, but it does allow me to take more time between cleans, as this little device alleviates most of the buildup that would occur. Overall, the squeegee does what it is intended to do — keep my glass shower doors looking clean and soap-scum-free." —Steven M.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.95.

    16. A pack of toilet-cleaning gel from Scrubbing Bubbles to clean your bowl with each flush so you won't *have* to clean it as often. You're welcome.

    Each application lasts about 12 days! Refills have six gel stamp uses, and each box has two refills.

    Promising review: "Love these. They keep the toilet clean. So you squeeze this thick, nice smelling gel stuff onto the inside of your toilet bowl using the dispenser that comes with — easy. It lasts a few weeks according to how often your toilet is flushed. Each time you flush, water runs over the gel, cleaning the bowl and dispensing a fresh scent. I've watched as, ahem, dirty stuff stuck on the inside of the bowl gets washed away as the cleaner works its magic. I've used these for years and highly recommend." —Johnny's girl

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $3.99.

    17. A toothpaste cap for anyone who typically wakes up singing "Somebooooody once told me the world was gonna roll me" a la one of the greatest soundtracks of all time... Shrek.

    CasualChicken / Etsy

    CasualChicken is a small business based in Irvine, California that sells an array of unique 3D printed items.

    Promising review: "My order came well packaged and on time. Gifted it to my friend and she thinks it is hilarious." —Grace

    18. A waterproof, stain-resistant faux marble granite adhesive you can use to transform your bathroom vanity if it's really past its prime.

    Promising review: "I do not have the money for a new vanity right now. Insert DIY project of covering my ugly pink bathroom vanity in marble contact paper. It looks 100% better and it’s super durable. It’s a little tricky to work with at first and then you get the hang of it. I’m buying more for my half bath!"—Natalie Evans

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in four sizes).

    19. A bidet attachment to help you cut down on the need for toilet paper and ideally avoid that unpleasant moment when you find yourself on *the throne* without any TP in sight and have to embarrassingly call out to your S.O. to rescue you.

    Bio Bidet

    Promising review: "I bought this to replace an older model. I like the improved cleaning features. I also like the installation with the slim design. It fits nicely without using any type of spacers to make it fit on the toilet properly. I recommend this to anybody, especially if they are on a tight budget. You really get your money's worth." —johnderoos

    Get it from Bio Bidet for $49.99.

    20. A mesh body exfoliator from Luv Scrub with so many uses you'll want to spend more time in the tub than ever before. You can use this unique piece of material to dry brush your skin, exfoliate with your fave body wash, and remove ingrown hairs.

    the luv scrub in pink and black
    luvscrub / Via

    Luv Scrub is an incredible Black woman-owned business with products inspired by a traditional West African morning routine. I've personally met the owner, Caroline, and she is an actual ray of sunshine. In addition to being a fan of hers, I'm a big fan of this product — I personally love using it in the tub to exfoliate my legs. The best part about it? It lasts for up to 18 months! No more loofahs for you.

    Get it from Luv Scrub for $18 (available in five colors).

    21. Book of the Month, because there are few things as soothing as diving into a page-turner while lounging, undistracted in the bath tub (careful not to drop it though!!!!).

    bookofthemonth / Via, bookofthemonth / Via

    I was gifted a year of Book of the Month for my birthday one year and to date it is one of the best things I've received. There are few things as satisfying as getting truly lost in the pages of a good book — and it'll provide for a great distraction for your mind if you've recently been stressed. Each month you'll be permitted to choose one of four books, all of which are different genres. Then the book you selected will be delivered to your door. Magic! Excuse me, I need to re-up my subscription.

    Get a three month subscription from Book of the Month for $49.99.

    22. Or a Kindle Paperwhite — a must-have for any bookworm who doesn't trust themselves *not* to get droplets of water all over the pages of a physical novel.

    Abby Kass / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    It's the thinnest and lightest Kindle Amazon has released to date! And — as is made abundantly clear by the photo above — it's 100% waterproof.

    Promising review: "I love the fact that I can read on this Kindle in both daylight and dim light conditions. It is so light and compact, which makes it easy to hold, easy to travel with, and the battery lasts forever. I love it." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99 (available in four colors).

    Check out our full review of the Kindle Paperwhite.

    23. An OXO tub stopper you can rely on to keep all of your hot water in place instead of sloooowly going down the drain — no more finding yourself naked and cold because your water has disappeared.

    a blue tub stopper underneath a running water faucet

    This lil' gadget is *key* to a great bath. There's nothing worse than realizing your hot water is slipping away, cutting your time of rest and relaxation short.

    Promising review: "My tub drain has a slow leak when plugged. This OXO Drain Stopper works really well, as advertised. I love that it is weighted, so it really stays in place! I even unplugged the tub's plug mechanism to see if this would keep a good seal... and it keeps it leak-free all by itself with zero help from the tub's 'plugger'! And the little suction cup on the tab of the silicone is really handy for sticking it to the side of the tub or tile when you're done! " —Michelle R.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.78 (available in three colors).

    24. A supportive bath pillow, a must-have for anyone who desperately needs to soak the stress of their day away (ahem, me) before hittin' the hay.

    a white, squishy bath pillow

    I have this, obviously, and my only suggestion is to make sure you wipe it down now and then to ensure it stays free of water stains.

    Promising review: "My husband bought this for me because I LOVE taking baths; it's a nice way to relax and unwind after a long day, but I've recently had some health problems which has caused me to lose a lot of weight and taking baths has become excruciating. Due to the lack of extra cushion back there now, lying back on the porcelain tub was extremely painful on my spine/bones, and I had resigned to the fact that I wouldn't be taking baths anymore. But, GOOD NEWS, this pillow is a dream come true. I wish I had always had this pillow. It's soooo comfortable! I could almost nap in the tub (but don't!)." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in two sizes and four colors).

    25. A bath mat that'll bring playful Powerpuff Girl vibes to your bathroom in the *best* way. Eat your hearts out '90s kids.

    26. A waterproof Bluetooth speaker you can clip onto your shower head and pump in your favorite playlist to get you motivated for the day ahead.

    a reviewer's purple clip-on speaker attached to a shower curtain

    Promising review: "I keep mine in my shower and I love the battery life on this. I rarely have to charge it it is super easy to use and connects quickly to my phone via Bluetooth the sound quality is really good. Since I’m a total geek and listen to audiobooks in the shower the sound quality is very important to me since I need to be able to understand what is being said in order to follow along in the book. I love this product which wish I had bought it sooner." —S. Erb

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95 (available in 12 colors).

    27. A bamboo bath tray to give you just one more reason to fill your tub to the brim and soak for hours while listening to Enya.

    the tray spread across the bath tub with a book, a razor, and a glass of wine on it

    Promising review: "I only just recently purchased this product, but I already love it. I have flat areas on the side of my tub, so I had no trouble adjusting the tray to the size I needed to make it fit. I also love that the trays are adjustable and can be moved to either side; I've utilized this function more than once when in the bath. Seems very sturdy. My glass of wine was very secure in the wine holder, and I didn't have to worry about knocking it over. My phone kept dry in one of the caddies, and it was nice to have the glow of the candle right in front of me. Dried off easily and is ready for next time!" —Eldarsevenstar

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99.

    28. A towel from Havly that'll get softer each time you wash it — don't you think you deserve it?


    I have a set of these towels and it is unbelievably soft. It's thicker than most of my towels but seemingly takes up less space. The loop to hang it seems super sturdy which is an added bonus. It really DOES softer with each wash!

    Get it from Havly for $44 (available in eight styles).

    29. A trio of chic glass apothecary jars to store bath bombs, cotton balls, or whatever else so you can take a breath and chill out since your bathroom is no longer a hot mess.

    three glass canisters in different sizes holding various beauty products

    Promising review: "Absolutely love these! They are larger than I thought but not overpowering on my sink. The lids are easy to grip and there is plenty of room on all three for whatever you might want to put in them. I have cotton swabs in the small, cotton balls in the medium, and makeup circles in the largest. My husband likes that the mouth of the containers is large enough for his hand to get out one cotton swab instead of having to dump the container out. They are beautiful — crystal clear and they don't look like cheap plastic, they look classy." —Diannah S.

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in four size options and two styles).

    30. Lavender essential oil and a tiny diffuser you can use to fill your bathroom with a soothing scent. Let it wash over you. Breathe in, breathe out., Amazon

    When I don't feel like scooping bath salts, managing a bath bomb, or soaking in suds, I reach for lavender essential oil. You only need to add drop or two into this adorable cactus diffuser to fill your bathroom with the relaxing scent.

    Promising review (for the oil) : "The scent is strong and pure, and 4 oz is a lot! There's no alcohol-y smell. I like to use it on my wrists before I fall asleep, or put it in my bath. The smell is a lot stronger than the flowers or sachets you could buy, so just be aware that a little goes a long way." —E.C.

    Get them from Amazon: Lavender essential oil for $16.98, cactus diffuser for $20.99.

    31. A futuristic toothbrush holder, designed to dry your brush naturally (no wet bacteria!) and keep it safe without taking up space.

    the rounded small toothbrush holders in pastel blue, pink, and white

    Promising review: "BRILLIANT! Minimalist and functional. This product makes so much sense. So much less gross than most toothbrush holders. I thought these would be small cups to hold the brushes, but they are actually rings with holes all the way through, which is even better because water cannot accumulate inside the holder." —whatsnvc

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 11 colors).

    32. A modern mirror with a beveled edge you'll admire every time you pop into your bathroom to fix your hair or brush your teeth.

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99+ (available in two sizes and colors).

    33. Hassle-free shower curtain hooks – they'll make you wonder how you ever survived all these years without them in your life., Amazon

    Promising review: "These have been the most hassle-free shower curtain hooks I have ever purchased! I love the double-sided hooks for both the shower liner and curtain. The weight distribution makes opening and closing the curtains a breeze. I have not seen any signs of rust and have yet to experience a sticking issue when trying to glide. I highly recommend and will not purchase anything but these from now on!" —SmithStine

    Get a set of 12 from Amazon for $8.99.

    a white tissue box cover shaped like a house, the tissue looks like smoke coming out of the chimney

    Promising review: "I first spotted this at a swank modern hotel room with all-white decor. I love how it hides an unsightly branded tissue box — it practically vanishes! so I had to buy it for my child's bedroom! It looks so cute with the tissue-y 'billow' of smoke, and is functional too. Every modern minimalist's dream, it could be sold at the Moma or in an Alessi-type store." —nycgirl

    a vanity mirror surrounded by bulb lights

    Promising review: "Really impressed with these lights! The installation was very easy because it came with clear installation instructions! Lights can be dimmed with the power switch, which isn't actually a button, it's a touch button (which I absolutely love). I've been looking for cheap vanity lights that are high quality and these are the ones!" —Mary Truong
