    1. Some lemon-scented cleaning putty that’ll get all the dust settled inside your car vents and the crumbs trapped in your keyboard. Once you’re done, just store it back in its container — you don’t even need to wash it.

    Amazon / Via

    Flipping your keyboard and gently slapping it like you’re burping a baby doesn’t work (I tried). Can you imagine cleaning a speaker grill with this?

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $9.99.

    2. A soft microfibre towel that'll remove your makeup thoroughly without needing anything but warm water. Now you have no excuse to sleep with your makeup on because you have a one-step cleansing solution.

    Amazon / Via

    I use this on nights when I’m too tired or sleepy to do my entire face-washing regimen. I know the idea of rubbing your face with a towel sounds like Scratchy Town, but it's so gentle! It even removes waterproof makeup. Liquid lipstick? Bye. Waterproof mascara? She resigned.

    Get a pack of two on Amazon Canada for $12.

    3. An angry little doll that'll steam up your microwave, softening all the bits of food stuck inside it and making them a breeze to clean.

    Amazon / Via

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $5.89.

    4. A leak-proof and microwave-safe lunchbox for adults that'll make you actually want to meal prep — you know, instead of spending a ton of $$$ buying lunch every day.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $9.95. Also available in "Did You Medicate The Dog?" and "Did You Feed The Cat?"

    6. A triple pack of tempered glass screen protectors, so you can stop going weeks with a broken screen (and the looming dread of a huge screen replacement bill). Instead, just change your screen protector!
