Promising review: "I purchased these on a whim a few months ago, and I've bought three more packs of them for friends and family. I always used to use the Clean & Clear oil blotting sheets, but these are so much better. They feel papery, which is better than the shiny feeling of the Clean & Clear ones. They also come out of the package much easier. With the Clean & Clear ones, you were always having to use a piece of sticky tape to pick up the next sheet, but this one comes out on its own after you pull a sheet, which is great. I can't recommend it enough." —Carly

2. A jewelry cleaning brush because you'd be surprised at how dingy your jewelry actually is. It's time to let your ring 🎵 shine bright like a (literal) diamond 🎵.

The Amazon listing also suggests buying a polishing cloth to apply an anti-tarnish barrier on your silver, protecting it from any future build-up!

Promising review: "I worked several years in a fine jewelry store that sold this product. We used the dazzle stick from time to time to add a quick shine to merchandise that was just tried on and on days our jeweler was not there to professionally clean items. I was always impressed with the instant shine the diamond stick provided. The brush tip is very helpful for getting under the stones and in the setting where gunk builds up reducing that brilliant shine. I recently got engaged and immediately purchased a diamond dazzle stick of my own. It's the perfect way to quickly give my ring some shine before leaving the house. You simply brush, rinse, dry and go. I don't feel this product replaces the need to professionally clean your jewelry every now and then, but it does help with the maintenance of that new shiny sparkle." —Amazon customer

3. A steering wheel tray so when someone catches you eating fast food in the parking lot of Taco Bell like a weird food goblin (me the other day), you'll at least look like you planned it.

Promising review: "Since I am in university right now as a commuter, sometimes I spend a bit of time in my car as it is comfortable compared to uncomfortable desks/chairs at my campus. This table makes it easy to work inside the car for eating or working as it has two sides. One side works as a lunch tray with a spot for a drink and the other side is mainly flat for books or a computer." —Kevin H.

Get it from Amazon for $10.19.

4. A toothpaste cap that is a bit cheeky (I had to) but I can guarantee it will make you laugh every time you brush your teeth.

5. A surprisingly effective essential oil stick infused with peppermint, spearmint, and lavender to ease those pesky migraine and tension headaches you get during the workday or because your cat won't stop meowing for treats. Oh, just me?

Read our review of the Migrastil headache relief stick!

Promising review: "I have had tension and migraine headaches for around 20 years. I have tried everything. OTC medication, prescription medication, pain injections, chiropractor etc... This topical oil has given me relief for nearly six weeks now. I have only had two to three headaches in that time, and they were mild. I ordered more already so I have some in my car and at home, and I bought some for two of my friends who suffer from chronic migraines. I would recommend this product to anyone with migraines. It is phenomenal." —Mary D.

Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

6. Biodegradable, all-natural bottle cleaning tablets because is there anything more annoying than trying to clean your water bottle or coffee tumbler?

Promising review: "Totally worth the purchase. Sure, you could maybe compound something similar but these are so easy to use that it's just not worth the hunting and gathering of various ingredients. I split one tablet in half with a bench scrapper because the package said to dilute with 1 liter of water and my Hydroflasks are 18 oz each so I figured a 1/2 tablet per Hydroflask would be sufficient. I typically store lattes in my Hydroflasks and they had an impressive amount of buildup on the inside so I opted for 1/2 tablet + nearly boiling water + overnight soak time. The next morning I dumped out the water, gave them a quick scrub with a bottle brush, and WOW. THEY'RE LIKE NEW!!! Or as close to new as you can get after 5+ years of daily use. Totally worth it." —Jessica Bills

Get a box of 12 tablets from Amazon for $8.

7. A spaghetti measure so you don't have to try and figure out how much an *actual* serving size is for your pasta dinner. Honestly, I'll probably still cook the whole box because I don't understand spaghetti.

Okay, so I'm definitely the kind of person to cook an entire box of pasta because they have no idea how much they should be making for one person. This measure has worked perfectly for me to figure out exactly how much I need to make for myself and my fiancé for dinner. No more wasted pasta!

8. A portable bug-bite suction tool because, hi, it's summer. I literally have five mosquito bites on me as I type this. I think we *all* need this.

Place the tool over the bug bite, pull the handles up to suck out the venom and push it back down to release. The suction can be pretty strong so be careful and try a small amount of suction first. As you get more comfortable, you can add more suction.

Promising review: "I am a magnet for bites of all kinds and carry topical and medicines with me at all times — so I figured this would be a good product to see if it really works. I woke up with a bug bite on my arm so I used this little tool (three times per the instructions) — immediately after using, it stopped itching! And less than 24 hours later the bump/bite is gone! There is a very faint red mark from using the thing, but a small price to pay IMO. Bottom line: it’s awesome. I’m carrying it with me everywhere!" —Rebecca

Get it from Amazon for $9.95 (available in two colors).

9. A wood polish and conditioner to enhance the natural beauty in all of your wood by feeding it with oils, preventing it from drying and fading. It'll make your adult self *so* proud.

This polish can be used on antiques, kitchen cabinets, dining tables, doors, and basically anything that's wood! Also doesn't contain any silicone or linseed oil.

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 who 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 $8.98.

10. A pack of adhesive cable clips that'll finally detangle that mess of cables you've been dealing with at your home. Plus, you'll look super organized and put together, two things no one can ever call me, even with these.

Promising review: "It was always a pain to reach down the side of my bed to reach my chargers, not to mention the wad of cables I’d have to sift through just to charge my phone. I finally searched for a solution and came across these. They’re great! They’re really easy to stick on and they stay in place. I haven’t had an issue of them falling off. Whenever I need to charge a device they’re right next to me, easy to reach and untangled. I definitely recommend!" —Nelis Perez

11. A pair of blue-light-blocking glasses so your eyes can get a much needed break from the strain that is staring at a computer screen (and phone!) all day.

Promising review: "I used to work from home on occasion before the pandemic, but now that it is a regular thing that I work from home, I really find these so useful. I am always at my desk and constantly looking at three different monitors and, of course, there's also my iPhone and iPad and TV here and there in between. It's a lot. There was a time I stopped wearing these because the pair I got for my son broke and I gave him mine. I noticed I would get headaches. I bought another pair for myself and have not had a headache from the long hours of working from home in front of these monitors. Recommend!" —E

Get it from Amazon for $6.95+ (available in 14 colors and in multi-packs).

Promising review: "Excellent tool that has really made all the little annoyances of owning a newer MacBook with touchbar go away.

I now have two, one for the office and one for my home office!" —PrimeBurntOrange

15. A container of The Pink Stuff cleaning paste that'll clean practically anything. No really. Marks on the walls? Sure. Dirty stove? Obviously! Grimy bathtub? Duh. The Pink Stuff has your back.

BTW, it's vegan!

Promising review: "Since moving into this apartment I have gradually come to hate this tub because of the water stains I have tried every product on the market including crazy things from the internet like Coca-Cola, vinegar you name it..this stuff with a couple of swipes/scrubs and a toothbrush for the textured areas completely cleaned my tub in a way that I can only tell you excited me to the core of my being. All I can tell you is buy it and I wish you the best!" —Michelle

Get it from Amazon for $5.37+.

16. A steaming microwave cleaner that is probably exactly what you look like when you see all the stubborn crud that's been building up inside of your microwave.

Simply fill with water and vinegar, turn on the microwave for five to seven minutes on high and watch it produce steam, softening all the debris. Made of heat-resistant materials and is top rack dishwasher safe.

Promising review: "Purchased this to help get rid of any gunk inside the microwave. I pop it in with some water and vinegar and within two minutes, all of the gunk inside can easily be wiped away!" —RVS

17. A posture corrector designed to help put your back in the proper alignment, relieving pain and helping you gain stability in your spine. With time and practice, it develops your back's muscle memory. Soon, you'll be standing tall without it! Huzzah! Bonus: It's discreet enough to wear under your shirt.

Promising review: "We got this since we’re both working from home full-time during the pandemic and it’s clearly having a negative impact on our posture that our home office is now extended to the deck and our sofa! This thing is about as comfortable as it can be for what it’s doing, we wear it for about an hour a day each and it has absolutely improved back pain and posture. It came with extra Velcro pieces to extend for those with larger shoulders, which is a nice touch. This is a good, quick investment for those of us who have a hard time buying a $300+ ergonomic chair for a home office!" —emthehuman

Get it from Amazon for $11.97.

18. A USB-powered desk fan because your coworkers constantly complain about being cold when the AC is on, but we both know it's actually wicked hot and we need this fan to stop from sweating through our clothes.

Promising review: "The fan is perfect. It is small, so sits easily on your desktop. The noise is almost non-existent, so again it is perfect for an area where you are working. This little fan works really well, and creates quite a breeze for such a small fan. I travel overseas, so the fact that this is compact and portable – as well as USB-powered – is even more useful. Very happy with my purchase! There are several different speeds. Each time you push the button the speed changes. Sure do love this little fan!" —Angela L.

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

19. Reusable silicone straws for guzzling down your favorite iced coffee with *sustainability* in mind. You know what makes these really cool though? Snap closures! This means you can open the straws in half to ensure you got all the gunk out! Just give 'em a good wipe down. No more "cleaning" brushes required.

Promising review: "I never thought I’d be writing a review for straws, but here we are. These are FANTASTIC. I try to be as eco-friendly as possible but was ready to give up. I’ve tried metal straws, but they are tough to clean and I don’t love metal against my teeth. I’ve tried other reusable plastic and silicone options but they don’t work for thicker drinks like smoothies. These actually address all of my issues. I’ve used them for thick smoothies, that I drink daily, and just for other everyday drinks like water. They couldn’t be easier to snap open and clean, dry, then easily snap back into shape to use again." —M. Alexandra

Get them from Amazon for $5.55+ (available in five colors).

20. A set of hanger hooks to keep your adorable purse off the floor of your car so its easy to reach during your morning commute to Starbies.

Get a two-pack from Amazon for $7.99 (available in two colors).

21. Reusable K cups that will not only save you $$$ on those disposable cups, but they're also compatible with all Keurig machines. Plus, you can use your favorite bag o' beans!

"I've been using these exact ones for years now, and absolutely love them. Every once in a while my old Keurig 2.0 (I've since upgraded) would give me an error message indicating it was not a K-pod and therefore could not be used, but after slightly adjusting the pod and closing the top again, it would work just fine! I now have the Keurig K-Elite and haven't had this issue arise. All in all, these are a wonderful way to use less plastic! I also enjoy ground coffee and find it fresher than K-pods, so you really can't go wrong with these!" —Kayla Suazo, BuzzFeed Staff

25. A handheld garlic press so you can finally stop trying to mince your fresh garlic with a knife. With a simple back and forth motion, you'll have perfectly minced garlic in half the time.

Promising review: "I had a two-hinge garlic press, which worked well but the garlic often got stuck and it was not easy to clean. I am pleasantly surprised by how this garlic crusher has such a simple design, yet it is so effective. As you press the garlic, the minced garlic will be collected on top of the grater and you can easily scape them off with the little knife that came with the kit. I also love the silicon peeler! It makes peeling garlic skin a lot easier. With these tools, my hands longer stink from cropping garlic!" —CL

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

It holds up to 30 sheets of paper and can swing back and forth.

Promising review: "This lightweight arm holds at least 20 pages without falling out. I use this to prioritize things I need to get done and it keeps me from losing paper in piles. I have neck issues because I am constantly looking down and this keeps my head up and makes data entry easier because it's right next to the screen. It also pivots so I can adjust the angle." —Life Is Short
