    42 Useful Things That Will Make Stuff You Own Even Better Than Before

    A laptop adapter, some very popular museum gel, and so many more products your things desperately need.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A rose gold rechargeable electric lighter to replace those disposable matchsticks and old dinky lighter you've been using to light all of your candles. OK, it's me.

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    This one is not only *so* pretty, but it's completely flameless. Also, it has a long stem so you can feel safe lighting even the last bit of candle wax remaining in the jar.

    BuzzFeed editor Emma Lord has a full review of the Leejie electric lighter for more deets!

    Promising review: "Works like a charm. I knew immediately that I needed it. I love candles and this is so much better than a match or lighter. It’s kept a charge for months. I use it several times a month." —dwhite3012

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in five colors).

    2. A multi-plug outlet for when you only have one measly outlet in your living room, but have a ton of electronics you use.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was constantly having to unplug something in my kitchen to make room for charging my iPhone or watch or using the slow cooker or any of the other half-dozen things I wanted to use at the most convenient spot in the house...the kitchen counter. My 140-year-old house has a distinct shortage of outlets in the kitchen, so this product looked like a good option. It exceeded my expectations and has made my electronic life much simpler. Features that I love other than the excellent number of outlet options it gives are that it screws into place (so it doesn’t pull out of the outlet when you try to unplug something), the versatility of having the USB ports, and the light feature that I appreciate a stupid amount. Yeah, the light switch is right next to it on the wall, but who wants to flip on a light just to plug something in? So basically the price was great, it arrived quickly, and it looks nice. I have a cordless phone plugged in, plus an Echo Show, my Apple Watch charger, my iPad, and an iPhone plugged in with outlets to spare. I’ll run out of counter space before I run out of outlets." —HappyCarnivore

    Get it from Amazon for $16.97+ (available in two styles).

    3. A 3D mouth bracket that clips to the inside of your face mask to keep you from breathing in fabric, especially when you're at the gym and really working up a sweat.

    amazon.com

    A lot of reviewers also mentioned this was great for saving their lipstick or when fabric from masks gets wet in the rain!

    Promising review: "These make it so much easier to have a conversation since your mask isn't right on your mouth and you don't sound all muffled. Other benefit I don't have to speak as loudly. I'm not so sure about being cooler with this because it always feels hot when I have my mask on. There are some clips on both ends of these but I'm not sure how they are used. I find they stay in place if my mask is nice and snug which it should be. Very satisfied with this product." —Duarte Lady

    4. A rainfall showerhead because picture yourself waking up in the morning and taking a luxurious shower under this majestic queen instead of your ol' showerhead. ~Ahh~.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was able to install this item rather easily, my old head was harder to get off than this head was to install. The wrench that is provided is adequate along with the use of your hands; no other wrench is needed. I would just make sure you do not tighten very much. No pipe tape was needed with my installation; there was none included with my purchase. I love the adjustable arm, the flow of the water, and how relaxing it feels after a rough day to stand underneath and enjoy the water flow over your body." —Ozatlarge

    Get it from Amazon for $26.34+ (available in three sizes and three colors).

    5. A ChomChom roller to gather up the pet hair that's accumulated on your chair from your fur baby making it their bed when you got up to use the bathroom. It also has a little compartment that stores the fur for easy cleaning!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have had many different pet hair rollers and this beats everything hands down. The compartment that traps the hair is genius. With many pet hair removal tools the hair sort of flies in the air a little, you have handfuls, or have to clean the brush on something...this baby traps the fur in a little compartment that is easy to empty. I sent links to this product to lots of my friends who are owned by cats and told them it will be life-changing." —DLB

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    6. A PhoneSoap sanitizer because after the last two years, we have definitely become very aware of germs and our phone is one of the biggest culprits. Flashback to me reaching for Cheetos and touching my phone screen with my grubby fingers. Ugh.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Yes, the photo on the right IS from a reviewer who tested the bacteria levels on their daughter's and husband's phones before and after use. GROSS.

    Promising review: "I work in a large dental clinic with 50+ docs and even more assistants. Anyone who knows about dentistry knows that there are a lot of aerosols given out during almost every procedure. Since we don't have a radio in the operatories, I've had to use my phone for music. Before phone soap I had to wipe my phone down every time with Cavicide wipes...not the best for your phone. Enter PhoneSoap! I'm able to sanitize my phone without destroying it with Cavicide! We've even tested and swabbed the phone for cultures before and after...this sucker works! Hands down, great investment. I'll be buying another one for the home because this one is staying in my office." —James

    Get it from Amazon for $79.43+ (available in six colors).

    7. A reusable and machine-washable duster that fits onto the Swiffer duster handle so you can keep your house dust-free for longer with daily swipes. Sometimes doing a little bit each day makes the job *so* much easier.

    TS Designs US / Etsy

    TS Designs US is a small Etsy shop based in West Leroy, Michigan that makes vintage gifts, decor, and eco-friendly items to add to your home. 

    Promising review: "LOVE the washable duster attachments. These are SO soft and such great quality. The stitching is strong and I don’t worry about anything coming apart. We use ours with our swifter duster wand and it fits perfectly. If you’re looking for a more sustainable item, this is one for you." —Cassie Couch

    Get it from TS Designs US on Etsy for $5.49 (available in 10 colors).

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

    Reviewers note that these work best if you put them somewhere the flies are already attracted to — these will definitely trap them, but they won't attract them on their own. The best part is that it's poison and pesticide free, so you don't have to worry about your plants or pets getting sick!

    Promising review: "A must for your plants. Great for all those fungus gnats near my plants! Works great and is very attractive looking." —Mac

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $8.99 (available in a pack of 24, 48, and 120). 

    9. A jar of ever-popular The Pink Stuff that'll clean practically anything. No really. Marks on the walls? Sure. Dirty stove? Obviously! Grimy bathtub? Duh. The Pink Stuff has your back every day.

    A lot of people compare it to the Magic Eraser in paste form, so even your most stubborn of stains are no match.

    Promising review: "I don’t think I’ve ever seen value like I do this product! Literally use it on EVERYTHING!! Kids and teens have dirt, grime, and grease on their walls? ...This will make it look like a new paint job. Baseboards need some love? A pea-size amount of this makes them look brand new. Need a shoe cleaner? PERFECT for sneakers. I could name a million more uses, but I can ASSURE you this is worth every penny. What’s more? You need such LITTLE of this product, it will last a VERY long time!!" —Rachel in CLT

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    10. A bidet attachment because you'll be bummed if you have to spend another day walking around knowing you *don't* use a bidet. I bought one a year ago and I will never go back to just toilet paper again!

    Bio Bidet

    Promising review: "I bought the Bio Bidet BBC-270 and to my surprise it was absolutely remarkable. My girlfriend and I truly enjoy it and it does wonders on our backside. I thought that it was ideological to offer the advantage of connecting it to the our hot water nozzle under the sink, this option put the product over the top. Not to mention how great it goes with our whirlpool we just had installed. Several friends have come over to marvel and a couple have already purchased their own. Thank you so much Bio-Bidet for a break-through in our lives." —Anttonbuc

    Get it from Bio Bidet for $69.

    11. A wood-cleaning polish to enhance the natural beauty in all of your wood (it's not just for wood floors!) 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 adds a protective coating of carnauba wax and beeswax to your wood. 

    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 $11.11.

    12. A container of Museum Gel that'll successfully foil your cat's plans of knocking over all of your beautiful decorative pieces in the living room. You basically apply the clear adhesive to the bottom of glass or crystal and it'll stay locked in place on any surface.

    Reviewer holding the container of clear gel
    amazon.com

    Psst — people who sell jewelry like rings and want to balance them on a surface for photos also swear by this! 

    Promising review: "Excellent if you have inquisitive pets or kids. I use a quarter sized gob under glassware, candles, smaller lamps to keep them from being knocked over. Easy to use. Put a gob on any flat smooth clean surface and press object down on top of it. To remove, use twisting motion to release and lift up. The clear gob can be removed from surfaces by rolling it off like play dough. It can be returned to container for reuse. It does not dry out or lose its adhesive properties. With time, the gob returned to the container will magically 'melt' into the rest of the firm clear gel and appear to have never been used. Substance is like the clear sticky stuff used in mailings to adhere credit card to paper." —Mitzy

    Get it from Amazon for $10.38

    13. 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 🎵.

    Stephanie Hope / BuzzFeed

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $7.47.

    14. A bottle of Drop It that will remove the sulfate and tannin out of your favorite wine in just 20 seconds! Basically, you can enjoy your bottle of Chardonnay without worrying about the ~dreaded~ post-wine headache.

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    It's also a lot more cost-effective and environmentally friendly than wine wands or other competitors — a single bottle of this can be used to treat up to 55 glasses of wine, as opposed to wands that can only do a few glasses each before they get tossed. Drop It recommends 1–2 drops for each glass of white wine, 2–3 for a glass of red, and 7–9 if you're treating the whole bottle at once. Once it's in the glass, swirl lightly for 20 seconds, and you should be ready to sip, sip hooray!

    Promising review: "I became really sensitive to wine in my 30s and through a lot of trial and painful error, I thought I might have to give up on wine altogether. Then I found out about the preservatives being a possible cause and decided to give this product a shot. So glad I did!! I'm still pretty sensitive to reds but this helps tremendously so that I can have a glass with dinner without a headache immediately settling in. Whites cause me no problem what so ever! I love that it takes so little product to make a difference to a whole bottle. Just a few drops, a few minutes and we are good to go." —CastawayIrons

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    15. A bath pillow so you don't have to keep adjusting your neck on the hard tub surface every five minutes during your bath. It's a major mood killer if you ask me.

    Amazon

    This bad boy has seven (!!) suction cups so you definitely do not have to worry about it slipping off while you're trying to ~chill~.

    Promising review: "So if you're like me who lives in an apartment you know the bath has little to offer. I was hesitant buying this product knowing I didn't have a head ledge for the top bend to really rest on. But after putting it in my tub and soaking in a long deserved bath, this item was just what I needed. No stiff neck or sore back. Easy to place and clean. This is something I'll recommend to all." —Hannah Ruble

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in three sizes and seven colors).

    16. A bathtub tray because with your new pillow comes with new activities, and one of them being reading books while drinking your favorite late-night beverage.

    amazon.com

    Psst! The sides extend! This means it can definitely fit your bathtub!

    Promising review: "When I placed my order for this tray I looked at the pics but did not realize how really cool this piece is. The ability to change the size is great but I just love the different trays that are removable as well as the ability to put my phone and a Kindle in 'safe' areas of the tray. I found a perfect place for my TV remote should I want to watch TV and not read. I just got it and used it last night but it appears to be well made, balanced and offers versatility for the things you may want at your fingertips when taking a luxurious bath!" —SindiMcG

    Get it from Amazon for $39.97+ (available in seven colors).

    17. An ultra-breathable oversized blanket that'll make your bed *the* place you want to be, basically all the time. "What's that? Go to a bar? Sorry, I just started Squid Game, so I'll be here a while." —You, and me TBH.

    Muslin Comfort

    Made from hypoallergenic, natural 100% cotton, making it safe for kids and pets!

    Muslin Comfort is a woman-owned small biz based in California. 

    Promising review: "I recently purchased the king-sized gray muslin blanket and I love it! It is the perfect weight blanket and is generous enough on all sides of my bed. It is soft and I hear (from other reviews) that it will get even softer as it is washed more. If you are thinking about it — buy it — you won't be disappointed!" —Amy S.

    Get it from Muslin Comfort for $199.99+ (available in sizes twin–king and seven colors).

    18. A set of satin pillowcases because they're proven to create way less friction, reducing hair breakage and unnecessary tangles *and* they're soft on your skin!

    Promising review: "Bought these to help my hair from breakage! Even though it’s terrible for your hair, I tend to sleep on wet hair sometimes. After using this pillow case, I noticed my hair feels way less brittle when I sleep on my wet hair! Would recommend to people who want to purchase this to help with their hair!" —Alyssa

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $9.49+ (available in four sizes and 22 colors).

    19. A dishwasher magnet so you can stop the "are these dishes clean?" game you play with your housemates every time you need to grab a dish or spoon. Or worse...you accidentally grab a dirty fork 🤮.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I was buying this as a gift for my friend whose house I'm in almost daily and asking if the dishwasher is clean or dirty. The price was right for a stocking stuffer but I didn't expect that quality or size. I didn't check the measurements when I purchased it. It looked OK so I just bought it based on the pictures and reviews. It turns out it was pretty large. Maybe 5 inches long and about 2 inches in height. The slider works great and it comes with a magnet on the back and they add a Velcro set in case your dishwasher is not magnetic. She loves it and uses it a lot; she cooks every day so the dishwasher gets started at least every other day. Small purchase, happy results." —Reine Soleil

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in three colors).

    20. A webcam cover that's discreet enough so it doesn't look distracting while you work, but also gives you some sweet peace of mind knowing someone isn't just watching you work like 👀 .

    Promising review: " I used to keep a piece of electric tape over my webcams, but it was difficult to remove quickly when I need to use FaceTime. I put one of the sliders on my iMac, and one on my MacBook, and they are awesome! I would def recommend! :)" —Emily

    Cozy Mozy Home is a small business based in Kaunas, Lithuania, that sells practical and contemporary home products.

    Promising review: "These are awesome! I originally bought a single pack to see how they turned out; they worked so much better than the felt tips I have been using that would somehow still leave scratches on my floor or a smudge of adhesive. I placed a second order of these socks for the rest of my dining chairs. Really happy with the quality and durability." —Terry

    Get them from Cozy Mozy Home on Etsy for $11.21 (available in 10 colors).

    22. A shampoo scalp massager so you can get a deep, relaxing massage on your scalp without tiring your fingers *or* having to wait until your next salon appointment. BTW, a lot of reviewers mention this has also helped with psoriasis, dandruff, and scalp tenderness!

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I’ve suffered with dry, flaking scalp for about a year now (pretty much started when I was pregnant and hadn’t gone away). I have used tea tree oil shampoo, dandruff shampoo, coconut oil, you name it. I finally read somewhere that exfoliating the scalp might help, but I was hesitant because years ago, I had a shampoo brush and it was very rigid and the bristles were fine and close together and it made my hair a tangled mess. Anyway, I saw this shampoo brush and it looked a lot more flexible so I thought I’d give it a try and HOLY MOLY my flakes are gone! It’s made out of a silicone-type material and the little “bristles” are flexible but still get the job done. I can literally brush my hair with shampoo in and it doesn’t get tangled. It’s amazing. Not only do I have zero flakes now, I feel like using this does a way better job at working the shampoo in and getting your hair and scalp really clean." —Meg R.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.58+ (available in three colors).

    23. A facial applicator brush that'll make your nightly skincare routine *so* much easier and waaay less messier. This bad boy will help evenly spread the product without losing any of it between your fingers or under your nails.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these. I've been using them for months now and they make applying masks so much easier. I get a much more even application than I did with my hands or with other brushes. Extremely easy to use, clean, and store. Love love love!" —Caterina

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $4.39.

    24. 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 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 (available in 36 and 78 tablets).

    25. A set of discreet stick-on dress weights that'll keep your skirts and dresses from flying away in the wind a-la-Marilyn Monroe. These are designed with an adhesive that stays plenty sticky, but  you won't have to worry about damaging any of your fabrics.

    26. A streak-free anti-fog spray you can quickly apply to your eyeglasses to prevent them from fogging up while you're wearing a mask instead of slowly watching them cloud up with every exhale you take.

    reviewer holding up glasses next to bottle of fog gone
    Reviewer holding up bottle of spray with unfogged glasses and face mask on

    A heads-up that this works *super* well for some reviewers, but not all — note that this is meant for non antireflective-coated lenses, and the instructions for use are very specific. To apply, spray a small amount on both sides of your lenses, and use your fingers to rub it across the whole area. Let it sit for a full minute, then wipe with a dry soft cloth. 

    Promising review: "I have tried everything to keep my glasses from fogging with my mask and this product is by far the best. I'm sorry I waited so long to purchase it. I live in the Florida Keys and do a lot of diving and snorkeling and it works fabulous for my dive mask also. I would highly recommend Optix 55 Fog Gone. Great price, also I think this bottle will last a very long time." —Bebe

    Get it from Amazon for $9.55 (available in three sizes). 

    27. A USB-C multiport adapter because having a laptop is convenient until you need some extra ports for work that it doesn't come with. Just plug it into your laptop's USB-C port and you'll have so much more room for activities!

    This adapter has ports for USB, SD, and Micro SD, and HDMI. Each of the three USB port have 5Gbps transfer speed, the HDMI streams in 4K or 1080p, and there is a capacity of up to 2TB for the SD cards.

    Promising review: "This USB C Hub comes with a great quality for a great price. Definitely worth my money. It is light weighted and small size, so it is easy for traveling. With this hub, I can connect my mouse and keyboard with my MacBook pro without having to buy expensive ones from Apple store. It even supports HDMI, which helps me connect my MacBook Pro with my screen and projector! I wish I can get this earlier. This hub is a pretty cool design! I would highly recommend this to people who need a hub like this and don't want to spend a lot of money." —Zhanpeng Wang

    Promising review: "Works great and helps to relieve some pressure from sitting. This is a great memory foam cushion for office chairs or your couch. You really can feel the difference. This is thick, and feels like it will last for a really long time. I've been using mine for a couple of weeks and already feel a little better. The cover is removable for washing, and the stitching is done really well. I recommend this to anyone who has to sit for more than a few hours." —phillygrl

Some of the sticks can be hard to separate from one another but otherwise SO much easier than standard fertilizer and works to boot." —Rinar

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a pillow-top and pillow-bottom queen-sized bed that is a little too small for king sheets and with queen sheets I have battled to keep the sheets from popping off. I have tried everything! I was about to try to customize some king sheets because it was so frustrating. Then I saw this product advertised on Facebook in one of those posts about the amazing products that people love. So I figured it was worth a try. It works. I was shocked. My sheets have not popped off once. I ordered this in February and it is May now — and they have not popped off once! They used to pop off EVERY...SINGLE...NIGHT. To say this is life changing is not an exaggeration. Such a relief to be able to sleep through the night without ending up in rumpled sheets." —TinkerbellAPixie

    This bad boy will heat up your drink up to 131 degrees F! Also, you don't have to worry about accidental spills, because it's covered with thermal conductive glass.

    Promising review: "This little thing is quality in its build, appealing to keep in sight all day, and most importantly it keeps your coffee LITERALLY as hot as when you made it. When the coffee gets low, it's often /hotter/ than when I made it. Before this product, I had no idea what a "gravity switch" was. It just means that it activates when you set your mug on it and turns off when you remove the weight. Super convenient and works like a charm. I absolutely love this thing, and with a mug with a lid I've been able to go to meetings with hot coffee, return to my desk an hour later with warm coffee, and have hot coffee again in five minutes." —Nick Monreal

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in six colors).

    38. A pack of stickers to cover those obnoxious lights that emit from your electronics. You know...the one that keeps you up every night? Well, not anymore!

    Promising review: "I have a media PC in my living room under my TV and directly across from the main couch. The LED is extremely bright and obnoxious, especially in low-light situations. I can't remember how I found these, but I thought it was worth a shot. It dimmed the LED the perfect amount and I can definitely still see that the PC is on, but without the annoying blue beacon that can be seen from space. The variety of options included guarantee that you should have the correct size to dim whatever LEDs you have. Highly recommended, super-fast shipping (it came in letter envelope, which was awesome to find it in my mailbox)." —IPman501

    39. A portable vacuum that conveniently plugs right into your car so you don't have to worry about paying for a vacuum or finding an extension cord at home. Just look at it go!

    Stephanie Hope / BuzzFeed

    When I tell you that I use this product often, I mean it. It's so easy to plug in, vacuum dirt from the floor or seat, and put it away. It comes with three different attachments and an extra filter! My tip is to use the brush attachment for everything as it will kick dirt off the carpet fibers, making it easier to suction.

    Promising review: "I'm glad to have such a great stuff in my car. Yes, it is not a powerful as my vacuum cleaner in the house, however, it cleaned out all the garbage, which I accumulated over the past autumn and winter in the car. At the end of October my husband and I went to the ocean and as we tried to be neat — the sand was still in the car. Finally, I got rid of it! Now my beauty again is as clean as on the first day when I bought her!" —XI JI VERYFIED

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99 (available in two colors).

    40. A TubShroom so you can catch all of your hair *before* it clogs up your shower drain, resulting in the very gross "snake" technique where the hair comes out in a globby little string. Instead, the hair coils around this bad boy, making it even easier (and less gross) to remove!

    Promising review: "I have tried everything I could think of to cut back on hair clogs. I definitely became a pro at taking apart my drain to clean it, which is a disgusting process. Between my long hair and having two dogs who shed in the bed when we aren't around, there is a lot of hair of different lengths. This simple creation catches it all and is easy to get the hair off. The drain stopper still works for baths and the soft silicone is more gentle if a kid rubs it than the original screw-on drain cover. Fantastic." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95 (available in five colors).

    41. A toilet seat lifter because despite you keeping it clean, there's always something icky about the toilet and grabbing the lid just feels...*shudder*.

    Promising review: "Why not encourage clean bathroom habits, right? Especially with two young boys in the house, buying this just made sense. The tabs have stayed on for over a month now with no issues. It’s also great that the box comes with two. The only reason why I was hesitant to get them was because I thought it would look ugly, but they’re not too noticeable at all and don’t get in the way either. I’m very happy I found these!" —Daphne

    42. And finally, a toilet night-light to prevent the "hand panic-reaching for the light switch" because of how badly you have to pee. Time is precious here, folks.

    Amazon

    This LED toilet light has 16 colors that can work on a rotation or as a solid color.

    Promising review: "This seemingly silly little gadget has turned out to be great! The light level (brightness) can be dimmed down if desired, and the color can be set to whatever you want, but the bottom line is that you don't need to turn on a bright overhead light (which wakes me up and makes me angry, not a good combination) when you need to go into the bathroom at night. Cleaning it is a breeze, too; what seems like it's going to be a problem...isn't. I can't recommend this toilet night-light highly enough, and I'm not ashamed to admit it. Could be on the gift list this December." —Lee R. Gurr
