    1. These reusable mesh balls will help to clear your kettle of those gross, cuppa-ruining limescale flakes.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Simply pop one of these stainless steel balls into your kettle, put it on to boil, and then pour the water out – the limescale from your kettle will collect on the wires of the ball. After that, just give it a rinse and it will be good to go for the next time you need it!

    Price: £3.49 for two.

    2. These Drain Away sachets will quickly and effectively clear your drains of blockages.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Hair and grease buildup causing slow-running drains? This is the super simple solution. Pour the contents of the sachet down the affected plughole followed by a cup of warm water, allow it to stand for ten minutes, and voila – the foam will have gotten to work on your blockage!

    Price: £3.99 for three sachets.

    3. Seeing as your washing machine cleans your clothes, you hardly want to put your laundry in a dirty one! This 5-in-1 cleaner from Dettol will kill 99.9% of bacteria in your machine and act as a descaler.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    This stuff will remove the dirt and limescale from the hidden, hard-to-reach areas of your machine, and it'll eliminate any bad smells too. It's recommended to use it every two months – just pour some of the cleaner into the detergent drawer of your machine before running an empty cycle at 60°C.

    Price: £3.50

    4. Keep the area around your sink tidy (and dry your sponge at the same time) with this silicone over-the-tap caddy.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    It features drainage holes at the bottom, so your sponge can dry faster rather than staying damp (and getting smelly) as it sometimes does when left on the side. Unlike metal caddies it won't rust, plus it's easy to keep clean as you can just put it in the dishwasher when it gets mucky.

    Price: £5.94

    5. This reusable pet hair remover is more effective than a traditional lint roller and way less hassle than constantly vacuuming.

    Jasmin Nahar / BuzzFeed / Via amazon.co.uk

    The picture above was taken by me – a person whose yellow Labrador loves relaxing on the sofa – so I really can vouch for the fact this roller works. It will pick up even small hairs with just a few swipes, and the fur will then collect in a compartment at the back which you can empty into the bin when it gets full. It's not just me who thinks it's great either, as it's gotten a 4.3-star average rating from 1,609 reviews!

    Price: £13.99

    6. This cleaning liquid will get your headlights looking as good as new, removing any yellowing and light oxidisation.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Alongside removing light oxidisation and yellowing, it'll actually help to prevent both of those things occurring in the future too.

    Price: £6.88

    7. If you struggle with excessive sweating, this 4.6-star rated Driclor antiperspirant keeps working for days rather than hours.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    This antiperspirant forms a gel matrix over the sweat glands, which helps to reduce and eventually stop the flow of sweat. You should notice an improvement within just a couple of weeks! Several customers go as far as to claim it's changed their life, which says it all TBH.

    Price: £5.77

    8. This cloth is specially designed to clean your stainless steel surfaces using nothing but water.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    The cloth has one stiffer side which removes any stubborn, hardened-on mess from your brushed or polished stainless steel, and a smooth side to clean polished surfaces. Use it on your stainless steel hob, fridge, or kettle among other places for gleaming results without the need for additional cleaning liquids.

    Price: £3.99

    9. Slide this mug hanger over a shelf in your kitchen cupboard for an easy storage solution!

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    As anyone with an ever-growing mug collection (i.e., me) will know, it can be pretty tricky finding a place to store all of them. This rack can hold up to ten mugs, will fit shelves of up to 2.5cm in thickness, and requires no tools to install it as you just slide it on. The rack also has a Polytherm coating which will prevent it from rusting and corroding over time.

    Price: £7.99

    10. You'll no longer need to ~guesstimate~ how cooked your eggs are thanks to this genius colour-changing egg timer.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    The red oval in the centre of the timer will get smaller and smaller depending on how cooked your eggs are, and has handy lines to indicate whether they're soft, medium, or hard boiled. All you have to do is drop it into the water you're boiling your eggs in – it will still be easy to read even when submerged.

    Price: £4.29

    11. And these silicone cups will make it incredibly easy to get perfectly poached eggs.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    No more messing around with swirling the water, having wisps of egg white clouding up your pan, or ending up with broken yolks! Just grease each poaching shell, pop an egg in them, put them in a pan with a low level of boiling water, and place a lid on top. Within minutes your eggs will be poached to perfection! They're also much smaller and easier to store than an egg poaching pan, saving you space in your kitchen too.

    Price: £3.49 for two.

    12. This highly-rated sleep mask has ultra-deep eye sockets so there's no uncomfortable pressure on your eyes while you drift off, and features an adjustable nose bridge to stop any light getting in.

    Jasmin Nahar / BuzzFeed / Via amazon.co.uk

    Having used this mask myself, I can say it's been a real game changer! All that memory foam sponge on the inside – paired with the deep eye sockets – makes it incredibly comfortable to wear, and it's easy to move your eyes without feeling fabric rubbing against them. Customers are amazed by how well this mask blocks out light, and I am too!

    Price: £9.99

    13. This heat-resistant silicone funnel is collapsible, so you can easily stow it away when it's not in use.

    Price: £2.50

    14. Although it's designed for dive masks and swimming goggles, this anti-fog spray is just the thing to stop your glasses misting up when you have a face covering on.

    Spray it onto the inside of your lenses before wiping it away, and they'll be coated in its fog-preventing formula! Because of its small size, it's easy to take with you on the go too.

    Price: £6.99

    15. The clever design of this double-sided brush means it can get right under the rim of your toilet.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Price: £2.74

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Price: £2.50

    17. This Bloo rim block will clean your toilet with every flush, and prevents limescale too.

    Price: £4.84 for a set of four.

    20. This set of six silicone utensils are heat-resistant and so easy to clean.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    Silicone spatulas are the perfect way to scrape every last bit of food out of the pan as well as being great for folding ingredients when baking. Because they're heat-resistant up to 230℃, they won't get too hot for you to hold when cooking either. Unlike some silicone utensils, these have a hygienic one-piece design that prevents the gross problem of mould and dirt building up in the space between the detachable head and the handle.

    Price: £10.99 for six.

    21. Remove the bobbles from your delicate garments with these fabric combs.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    23. Swapping your regular laundry detergent for an eco-friendly, hypoallergenic Ecoegg isn't just kind to the planet, it saves you money in the long run too!

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    The Ecoegg contains natural cleaning pellets that completely replace your regular washing detergents – just chuck this in the drum with your laundry and it's good to go! While it might look unassuming it's still highly effective, and will lift away dirt and grime from your garments. Because it's suitable for sensitive skin and hypoallergenic, it's perfect for those who find that most laundry detergents cause irritation or flare-ups. Each egg will last you for around 240 washes (about a year of laundry for the average family), which is pretty great considering the price!

    Price: £12.99
