    1. 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 buildup!

    Promising review: "I worked several years in a fine jewelry store that sold this product. We used the Dazzle Stik 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 Stik 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

    2. A headlight restoration kit that will have you in absolutely awe to see how fogged your lights have been and how *bright* your headlights actually are.

    Wipe New

    Each kit includes one precision Wipe-It infused with Wipe New solution, one professional Lens Polishing Pad, one pair of nitrile gloves, and one microfiber towel to give your headlights a streak-free finish. One application is expected to last your headlights for years!

    Promising review: "If I could give it 10 stars, I would! My headlights were so bad, I couldn't see anything at night. My boyfriend went to Walmart and got this stuff. I got up the next morning and I swear it looked like he went and bought brand new headlights. Would totally recommend this to anyone!!" —Sara

    Get it from Walmart for $9.88, or Target for $9.89.

    3. A stainless steel cleaner and polish so your kitchen appliances can look brand spankin' new, even if just for a moment before your kids get ahold of them.

    amazon.com

    BTW, it's plant-based!

    Promising review: "After reading the newspaper, I desperately need just one dang thing I can fix in this world! But seriously, it's the best stainless cleaner I've ever used. It's quick, smells great, and the finish is perfect. It resists fingerprints (and paw prints) for days. It was also a great idea they had to include the microfiber cleaning cloth, as it does an excellent job as well. I probably wouldn't have thought of that. I plan to give these as gifts. Pretty funny!" —Designer Mom

    4. A foot file that'll leave your feet looking (and feeling!) like you just float everywhere, keeping them silky smooth at all times.

    amazon.com, amazon.com, amazon.com

    Getting a callous remover gel can really help soften that stubborn dead skin even more!

    Promising review: "After comparing foot files and reading the reviews, I decided to order this foot file. Living with chronic pain conditions has made it almost impossible to get out and go to the nail salon on a regular basis. I needed a way that I could 'maintain' my feet in between pedicure appointments, and purchasing this foot file was definitely a great decision. I couldn't believe how well and easily it removed the dead skin from the bottom of my feet. The only other product that I used was a tiny amount of callus remover to help remove the unwanted dry skin. I couldn't believe how well it worked and my feet felt so much better. I would highly recommend using caution when it comes to the amount of skin that you slough off. Otherwise, you could remove too many layers of skin, leaving your feet sensitive to touch or painful when walking on them. If you are looking for a way to maintain your feet on your own then look no further! The price is competitive, the quality is top notch, and it couldn't be any easier to use." —Amy

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    5. A dryer lint vacuum attachment, because you'd be surprised how much lint actually gets stuck *inside* the dryer. This will give you some peace of mind, knowing you won't have a random dryer fire started!

    amazon.com

    It can fit mosts, if not all, vacuums *and* has a flexible neck to make it easy to grab those extra-hard-to-reach places. 

    Promising review: "I clean out my dryer vent every other load and I never could get the lint that would fall below. It started to build up so I thought I’d give this attachment a try and boy was it worth it! Not only inexpensive but super easy to use. Highly recommend this product." —B.Garcia

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95.

    6. 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.

    amazon.com, amazon.com, amazon.com

    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 $3.99+ (available in three sizes).

    7. A pack of dishwasher-cleaning tablets formulated to penetrate, dissolve, and remove odor-causing residue. You'd be surprised how dirty your dishwasher actually is. Just use it once a month on any model and you'll have the cleanest dishwasher in all the land.

    Reviewer before and after photo of their blue bathroom tile with and without hard water stains
    amazon.com

    It's made with plant-based cleaning agents— that means no added dyes, synthetic fragrances, or harsh, hard-to-pronounce ingredients! Plus it's cruelty free *and* smells like tea tree and eucalyptus. It's basically perfect. 

    Promising review: "I have an old shower/bathtub. I tried name-brand shower cleaners and bleach to try and clean the soap scum off the tiles and tub. I had no luck and I would cough and get sick because of how strong the smell was. I thought I would try this to save my lungs. I sprayed my entire shower and left it for about 15 min. Came back and rinsed off the walls and they were shiny! I've never had such a clean shower. The smell is amazing and subtle. All I smell is tea tree and it didn't affect me at all. The price is also a good deal since the bottle is pretty large. It came with the sprayer separate and the bottle sealed so it wouldn't leak in the box. I highly recommend this!" —Amber Erwin

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $12.99 or Subscribe & Save for $12.34/month.

    9. Or an eco-friendly hard water stain remover if your stains require just a bit more industrial strength.

    Promising review: "We tried everything to get rid of hard-water stains and nothing worked. We were getting our house ready to sell and our tub and sink were a mess. We tried this product and it worked immediately, restoring everything to like new. It was fast and really worked! We even used it to clean our glass stove top. It was amazing how clean it got things. I have a bad back and have to be careful about scrubbing things and it takes no effort to use. We use it in our new house and love it!" —Bradley

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    10. A red wine stain remover spray to ease your worries that your precious grape nectar might spill in the heat of a moment while watching The Bachelor. At least you can easily clean it up now, unlike the drama on that show.

    amazon.com

    It's also effective on coffee, blood, ink, fruit punch, sauces, red medicine stains, and even pet accidents! Huzzah!

    Promising review: "We have a lighter-colored carpet throughout our entire house and with a toddler, two black cats, and two clumsy adults, it feels like a new stain shows up every single day. Saw this product on a BuzzFeed list and figured since it’s less than $6 I’d give it a try. It WORKS! It worked SO fast and smells nice too! I promise you, this is $6 well spent!" —Jonathan and Jill Orbell

    Get it from Amazon for $10.60.

    11. A suede brush cleaner so you can keep all of your beloved suede pieces looking like you just picked them up from the shops a couple of days ago.

    Promising review: "BUY THIS THING! I got mud on my new suede boots and thought they were ruined, but this brush completely restored them. I was shocked. I even used it on an old pair of boots from college that I have considered ruined for several years now, and it did wonders on getting rid of the filth on top of the suede. This is absolutely worth getting!" —Gaby Scott

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    12. A snout soother stick to provide some much-needed relief to your dog's super-dry and chapped nose, making it perfect for boopin'.

    amazon.com

    This snout soother is organic, vegan, and made with all-natural ingredients!

    Promising review: "Well, I have never before been so shocked at the effectiveness of a product. Our 5-year-old Frenchie, Carol, had a nose that was so crusty, it was sprouting these long strands of more crust. There was literally crust on crust on crust. The nose had strings of crust. This nose was so crusty and repulsive, it was almost beautiful. Her nose might have resembled the rarest, most exotic geode to be mined from the rarest mine in Guatemala. A friend recommended this snout soother for Carol's repulsive nose. I was worried she would just lick it all off and it wouldn't work. We never imagined she could have a regular, soft, moist nose again. Honestly, this product is some black-magic stuff! Unbelievable results in three to five days. No one paid me to write this." —Brittany

    Get it from Amazon for $7.41.

    13. Some stain-removing laundry tablets for cleaning tough stains and lifting spills by just tossing one in with a regular load and your favorite white socks will emerge dramatically whiter.

    Get them from The Fizz Whiz on Etsy for $12+ (available in two styles).

    14. A jetted tub cleaner to clean the parts of your tub you just can't reach. It'll flush out body oils, soap scum, and those questionable black flakes that gunk up the jets.

    amazon.com

    All you need to do is full your tub with warm water, add the solution, and run your jets!

    Promising review: "Works better than anything else we have tried on our six-foot jetted hot tub. We have well water with lots of minerals. Oh Yuk gets the crud out fast and rinses easy. Been using it for three years and nothing else comes close." —Linda

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    15. A grout stain remover so you can stop telling your friends and family that you definitely used black grout in the bathroom. I know your secrets.

    Reviewer before and after of the grout in their bathtub getting cleaned
    amazon.com

    To use, simply apply, wait six to eight hours, and then rinse away. No scrubbing required!

    Promising review: "I was skeptical in using this product as i have tried countless 'mold and mildew removers' out there. My mold and mildew problem is impossible to remove. I scrubbed, bleached, treated it but no noticeable difference. I left this product overnight and I was like 'what is this sorcery?' I have no other words to explain it. Phenomenal results!!" —iAwesome

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99

    16. Or a grout pen for when no amount of scrubbing and cleaning helps and you just want to paint over it and move on with your life.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in two styles).

    17. A fast-acting carpet spot–removing spray that I'm convinced is actually just a bottle of magic. This has been able to get even the oldest stains out of our carpets.

    amazon.com

    This effective bad boy removes pet accidents, grease, oil, ink, red wine, coffee, blood, rust, food, cosmetics, dirt, and grime!

    Promising review: "WOW! A must-have for any home. My carpet had some mystery stains that other stain remover products could not budge. I had resigned myself to never having them any better, until I found this product. It was very easy: Spray it on, then put a paper towel on top and it disappears. Seriously! There were a couple that I had to go back for a second time, but after having lived with these carpet blemishes for years... I was more than happy. I even used it on a cushion; you don't have to worry about harmful chemicals. You also get a lot of cleaner for your money, I was surprised at how big the bottle was, and you do not need to use lots when you apply, so this will last a very long time." —Malm

    Get it from Amazon for $12.50.

    18. A wood-cleaning polish 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.

    A reviewer showing previously washed out floors looking brighter and cleaner after using the product on them
    amazon.com

    It leaves a protective coating of carnauba wax and beeswax on all of your wood surfaces.

    Promising review: "This product is worth every penny and goes a very long way. We had tired, oak floors that haven’t been refinished in over 50 years. They were dried out and washed out. This product took away decades in an hour with a few rags and a lot of elbow grease. One word of caution: Floors are very slippery for a few days after use. Be very careful walking around. As a bonus, it smells amazing. It has a natural orange peel smell that is fresh and clean and not at all harsh or chemical. Highly, highly recommend." —GMD

    Get an 8-oz bottle from Amazon for $7.81 (available in three sizes).

    19. A lawn repair formula made from mulch, seed, and soil amendments to help reverse the unfortunate damage Hairy Pawter has bestowed upon your lawn with his seemingly radioactive pee.

    amazon.com

    This product has a combination of mulch, soil amendment, and grass seeds so let's break down why! The mulch absorbs six times its weight in water and expands to surround the grass seed in a moist protective layer. The seeds have a protectant that keeps the seedling safe from harmful diseases as it grows. Lastly, the soil amendment is a salt neutralizer that helps repair the areas in your yard burned by your dog's pee. 

    Promising review: "I have lacrosse players and dogs and this stuff is amazing. My yard looked like an abandoned lot before this and it literally 'grew anywhere' just like it said. The bag I planted last year actually came back strong this year so I put more down and it is working like a dream!" —chchmom

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

    20. A mascara for when you want the dramatic lash look without having to try and figure out how to use falsies. They scare me, OK?

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I got tired of breaking the bank over mascara. My sister suggested Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. It provides dramatic length and great volume. I can honestly say I can’t stop looking at my eyelashes in the mirror every single day because of how awesome they look. Also, it is very long wearing. I go from an eight-hour workday right to the gym and sweat like crazy...and this stuff doesn’t budge! I love it!!" —Carrie E Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    21. A makeup brush shampoo because you use your brushes every day and your face deserves clean products. Bonus: It's cruelty free *and* vegan!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    It's hypoallergenic, water based, plant based, *and* dermatologist tested!

    Promising review: "This cleanser is great! It fully removes all makeup from the brushes without leaving them feeling beat up (I'm not the most gentle when it comes to cleaning brushes). I use a thick foundation that soaks heavily into the bristles, but this removed it all. At first I thought it was a bit thin, but after using it, a little bit goes a long way. It has a nice lather, but very nicely and easily rinses out. I use this with the "MelodySusie Big Size Brush Cleaner" scrubby from Amazon. I was able to clean my brushes much faster than normal, and I feel more confident that I got all the makeup off the bristles. This has a very slight (not strong at all) scent of grapefruit. It's refreshing without me having to worry about it irritating my face or leaving a fragrance left on my brushes." —Kryssy

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    22. A pet hair removal broom to make your jaw drop when you see just how much hair your little rascal has been shedding into the grasps of your rug's fibers. There is a rake side and a squeegee side, which both effectively do the deed.

    Reviewer photo of a portion of their carpet covered in dog hair and the other cleaned with the broom
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a genius invention with a rubbery broom that catches everything! Today I didn't think the floor really needed to be swept, but the Furemover proved me wrong. I ended up with a big tumbleweed of dog hair and my hair and who knows what else? The handle telescopes far longer than I need (I'm 5'8") but the telescoping comes in handy when sweeping under the couch or other out-of-the-way places. This is a game changer if you have a lot of fur or hair in your home. You must try this, I am so happy with this purchase!" —Frannie

    Get it from Amazon for $12.44.

    23. A pumice stone that'll remove stains, hard-water rings, limescale, and rust buildup on even the ickiest of toilets.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a 19-year-old master bathroom toilet that had accumulated some nasty stains over time that regular toilet brushes and cleaning products just would not remove. I decided to try this pumice stone, figuring that the worst that could happen would be that it scratched the porcelain and I'd have to replace the toilet. Which was what I would have had to have done anyway if I couldn't get the disgusting stains out. The pumice stone worked like a charm! Given the nature and severity of the stains, it required some elbow grease, but 10 minutes later I have a new-looking bowl, and I see no signs of scratching. I am very happy with this purchase — well worth the very low price!" —Happy Retiree

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in multipacks).

    24. Or a Clorox toilet wand with disposable scrubby heads that come preloaded with cleaner so you can wipe the whole bowl with one hand and just toss the head out. Easy peasy.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "You ever look at your toilet brush in disgust and resentment? How's a dirty, used-up brush sitting in your throne room? You clean your bathroom but then you put that sucker down in its place and it's just, like, mocking you. It's never truly immaculate. Never knowing true cleanliness. Fear no more. Now you can shine the porcelain throne and not have to worry about a used-up toilet brush mocking your clean, sparkling bathroom. Gone are the days of breathing in dirty poop particles from the reusable potty-cleaning brush thingy. Clorox Toilet Wand is the answer to your prayers if you want an easy, deep-cleaning, toss-away-after-you're-done-type contraption for that porcelain throne of yours. Fast, cheap, and easy. Just like... How we like to clean." —Juliana

    Get the kit (one wand and six scrubbers) from Amazon for $7.96 — and get a 30-pack of scrubber refills from Amazon for $22.26.

    25. A set of three brush drill attachments you can add to any power drill to make cleaning your tub, floor, or even appliances an absolute ~breeze~.

    A reviewer showing that the drill brush attachment removed thick, foggy-looking residue from their shower door
    amazon.com

    Just make sure to use them only on surfaces you're pretty sure they won't scratch! You can always test in a discreet area first just to be on the safe side.

    Promising review: "Seriously, I have never wanted to clean our toilets as much as I do now. These little brushes have gotten off years of stains and water scum from our glass shower doors in just a few minutes. I would have never been able to get them even a fraction as clean by hand. We had stains in the toilets from our well water that I thought were permanent. Turns out that they were easily erased with this handy little brush. Our grout is sparkling again and my husband thinks I have lost my mind with the drill. I have actually been walking around the house looking for things to clean with this. They even cleaned our birdcages immediately with just water and no chemicals at all. What a great Amazon find!!" —Happy Yogi

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in six colors, which indicate the different levels of bristle stiffness).

    26. A Goo Gone kitchen degreaser because *goo gone* are the days of you using way too much elbow grease to clean your stovetop and counters.

    amazon.com

    Safe for use on tile, ceramic, and sealed stone surfaces *and* even safe for food prep areas!

    Promising review: "The tops of my cupboards had been cleaned maybe once in 15 years. They were disgusting with grease and dust that I thought I’d never get off. Goo Gone Kitchen Degreaser worked a miracle for me! The cupboard that was directly above the oven took some elbow work, and all others were as simple as spray, and wipe. The tops of my cupboards look new again!" —JC

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    27. A leather cleaner to bring some new life to that old dinky couch you've had since college. You can *also* use it on leather car seats, shoes, and clothing!

    amazon.com

    Remember to mix this concentrate with water before using!

    Promising review: "My 15-year-old leather sectional hadn't been cleaned or conditioned in three to four years because I couldn't find anything that worked well without causing it to look blotchy. The color was also fading and I thought it was a goner. After some elbow grease, the sectional looks great! It's now back to its original color without being blotchy. More importantly, the suppleness has returned. I can actually say that it looks as good as the day we bought it." —jellybean55

    Get it from Amazon for $18.95 (available in two sizes).

    28. Miracle-Gro indoor plant food spike for when you've always wanted a green thumb, but just need a *little* bit of help...for your plant's sake. Just stick these babies into your plant pot every few weeks to keep your plant friends alive and healthy!

    amazon.com

    Each spike can be used for 30–60 days, depending on the season. The reviewer pics above are all of the same plant — the left one shows how this magical stuff helped the plant perk up in just 10 days, and the right one shows that it's like a whole new plant just two short months later!

    Promising review: "I always kill my plants but I decided to try again. I just bought five houseplants, and three of them were marked down because they were looking pretty puny. Since I tend to kill them anyway, I figured I would give them a try and save some money. I put one of these spikes in each plant and they all looked so much healthier and happier after just a couple days. I also added one spike to the only houseplant that I've had for years without killing (I was beginning to think it was artificial) the leaves looked healthier almost immediately. I'm very happy with this product and it was a great price." —victoria

    29. A cooktop-cleaning kit that'll clean your stove so well, you might actually want to cook something. Or let's just order in, no big deal.

    amazon.com

    This set comes with a 10-ounce bottle of cooktop cleaner, one cleaning pad, and one scraper.

    Promising review: "As soon as I used this stuff, I couldn't believe it! We had a new stove that I didn't clean for months and assumed the burnt pea juice (my enemy) would just be a new stain forever. However, after one application, it was basically gone. I used the scraper that came with it and did one more small application on just that spot, and it was gone! Every time I use this it looks like my stove could be brand new." —Christi

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

    A reviewer before and after photo of a bottle
    amazon.com

    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 Hydro Flasks are 18 oz each so I figured a 1/2 tablet per Hydro Flask would be sufficient. I typically store lattes in my Hydro Flask 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 five-plus years of daily use. Totally worth it." —Jessica Bills

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

    31. A scratch-free scraper that can get into all the little nooks and crannies around the house you've been anxious to clean.

    32. Cleaning cups for your Keurig because you'd be surprised at how much old coffee gunk has been building up inside that bad boy. No, really. You will be surprised.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Okay, so these cleaner pods are awesome! I didnt know how gross our Keurig was until today. I would suggest running two or three rinse cycles instead of the recommended one. But it's still an awesome product for the price!" —Mads0421

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $9.95.

    Promising review: "This stuff is excellent. It performs as promised, it has a very nice scent, no fumes, and leaves the shower clean with no scrubbing actually necessary. It is very easy to apply and rinse off. It is designed very well, with squirting spout separate from the large container and attached by a longish tube, so you don't have to hold the heavy container while applying the product. I've been using it for quite a while now, and I love it. I highly recommend it." —Stephanie Martin

    Get it from Amazon for $16.89.

    34. A RainX shower door cleaner that'll make your glass so clean, you'll have to actively try to not run into it when stepping out after your shower.

    Promising review: "I'm in complete awe. I've tried everything under the sun to get the water marks and soap scum off my shower door. Nothing has come close to giving me these results!! I used a Scrub Daddy pad to apply the product. A cloth wouldn't do it. It took me an hour to do the whole door (in and out) but I love the results.

    35. A dust-cleaning gel to get all of those tiny nooks and crannies in your home clean that get dust settled in too easily.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Have you ever watched a pimple-popping video and just couldn't look away? How it's disgusting, but so rewarding watching that zit get what it deserves? If you answered yes, you'll love this stuff. I bought some just to give it a shot. At less than $10, I figured 'what do I have to lose, other than $10?' This stuff is fantastic. It is possible to get all the way down under the keys, but for your sanity, I wouldn't try it. The slime gets so nasty, but you can't stop cleaning. Your keyboard gets cleaner and the slime just gets more and more gross. How can that much hair possibly be under the keys? Where did all of those crumbs come from? You don't want to know, but you DO want to get them all, and this stuff will help you. In Pumbaa's words: 'Slimy, yet satisfying.'" —Alicia Snyder

    36. Drywall repair putty perfect for filling up holes made from moving decor around or even from unsightly cracks. Maybe you'll actually get your deposit back this time.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Does exactly what it says. Rather than getting spackle, waiting for it to dry, sanding it down, and tweaking as needed, this cuts the time/effort down to 1) rub over a place in need of patching 2) wipe off excess. The hardest part is not accidentally getting the product on parts of the wall that don’t need it, but that’s easy to clean up, so it’s not a problem. I used this to patch holes in the wall from a former Wi-Fi router and modem — other than the color difference from the patch to the paint, you’d never know it was patched. Great price, easy to use." —Amanda

    37. An antiseptic spray that'll help treat your fur baby's skin infections caused by yeast, bacteria, ringworm, and pyoderma — and no one wants that!

    It's *also* great for cleaning face folds, wrinkles, underarms, and groin areas. 

    Promising review: "Do your dogs smell like bread dough? Or Fritos? Do their ears smell REALLY bad? Do they lick their paws often? Do they bite their legs, back, hips, or hind end? Do they lick their bellies often? Have you noticed small, scab-like spots in their undercarriage? Brown spots on their skin? Red skin? Or the ultimate — a darkening of the skin that rubs off? If so, then your dogs probably have a yeast problem, which you might not ever have heard of, but this spray will provide instant relief! Most doctors first diagnose yeast problems simply by smell, so save yourself the vet bill and try this first! You can't get rid of it just by giving them a bath — you need a medicated shampoo or spray like this in order to effectively manage the yeast, and you have to use it for at least three months. I know it seems like a long time, but trust me, I learned the hard way. Yes, veterinarians can also diagnose by scraping skin cells and looking at them under a microscope, but generally they will diagnose a yeast infection in dogs simply by smelling them. Most pet owners never even know that dogs can get yeast infections. I didn't know, and I've had dogs for at least 15 years. This spray is the same strength you would get from a veterinarian's office, but without the cost of that bill. I highly, highly, highly recommend this spray for treating yeast and fungal infections in dogs. " —Amazoncustomer

    38. A watermark remover cloth so you no longer have to feel bad about that one time you forgot to use a coaster on your roommate's new coffee table they bought for the house.

    amazon.com

    Cloth is reusable, and can be used to remove marks on wood caused by water, alcohol, and heat. It can also be used to polish metal and chrome.

    Promising review: "I must admit I ordered this as a last hope. I had a mark on my bedside table that I tried various things to remove, but was totally unsuccessful. I tried this today, and there is NO sign of the mark. It is like brand new again. I was thrilled with the result and highly recommend it to anyone, but would suggest you try it first to save yourself grief! It is inexpensive in the first place, but to know I can reuse it if necessary on another mark (hopefully that doesn't occur, but life happens), makes it an even better value." —Kritik

    39. Ridiculously effective sticky traps for snatching those pesky gnats and fruit flies that are terrorizing your plants *and* life.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was having an issue with the fungus gnats inside and outside of my house. They were driving me crazy, flying in my face, and I couldn't take it anymore. I ordered these traps and they worked instantly! I placed the stakes and traps in my orchids (which I keep in the kitchen) and then placed some in my mini garden outside. Both traps caught more than I expected and are still catching more. It caught not only the fungus gnats but all kinds of large and small flies and moths! Totally worth the buy and will be buying more when I run out." —Sami H.

    40. A FlexiSnake so you can unclog your tub drain and stop standing in rising water pretending you're recreating the Titanic, but very slowly. Simply ~snake~ this tool down the drain and when you pull it back up, it will have grabbed all the hair and it's...it's gross.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    More than 4,000 hook-and-loop micro-hooks cover the full 18-inch span of the snake. It's reusable! Just remove hair after use, and clean with soap, water, and a brush. It's compatible with most bathroom drains, without needing to take off the stopper.

    Promising review: "I didn’t expect this to be professional grade or anything, but hey, for the price, this definitely did the job. Our bathroom sink was starting to drain really slowly, so I bought this. In less than two minutes, it had fed down the drain easily and pulled up two separate disgusting chunks of hair and soap scum. I wore cleaning gloves to clean that gunk off the snake, but it wasn’t too difficult. Drain worked perfectly after. I use it maybe once a month to maintain. Good value!" —KB

    41. Or a TubShroom that'll collect your hair before it even gets a chance to get clog in the first place!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This fits any standard 1.5-inch tub drain or bathroom sink drain. But, if you want to keep your hair catching separate between your tub and sink, then treat yourself and your home to the SinkShroom!

    Promising review: "This is absolutely worth every penny. Kudos to the inventor of this product. I have thick, long, dark hair, and after two months of moving into my own apartment, my shower drain was completely clogged with all my hair. After being disgusted at the amount of hair I had to clean out with a snake (which is NOT a fun task), I decided I needed to purchase something to prevent it from happening again. I read about this product in a BuzzFeed article, and I have no regrets. It is so satisfying to clean out, and it does not lie when it says it catches every single hair. I have had it for close to four months without once instance of my shower drain backing up. This product is absolutely worth it." —JT

    Promising review: "OK, I don’t normally rave about things like this. I bought this on a whim in a last attempt to save my favorite duvet cover. The pills had gotten to the point where it was seriously uncomfortable to sleep with them getting all up in my leg space. I thought I was going to have to get a new duvet cover entirely. Along came this lil' baby. Not only is my duvet cover basically brand new, but I have found a new hobby. I’m depilling everything. Sweatshirts, leggings, blankets, socks, anything that looks like it needs some love. It does the job quickly and leaves everything looking fresh. Hi, I’m obsessed. I can’t stop. I should send this back. I’ve started asking if my neighbors need anything depilled. I’m going to buy one of these for everyone in my life. Everyone needs to own this. Take it away from me." —Sydney Jensen
