    1. This unassuming kitchen utensil is actually a genius multi-tool – you can use it as a slotted spoon, spatula, and cutting tool among other things!

    2. This velcro tape has a 4.5-star average rating from over 4,900 customers for a reason (I should know, I've tried it myself). It really stays put once applied, making it the perfect way to attach boards, tapestries, and frames to your walls.

    3. This reusable silicone scrubbing sponge is a multipurpose wonder – you can use it on dishes, kitchen surfaces, and even your makeup brushes! Its non-porous material means it won't hold onto bad smells, and it has a three-finger strap to give you a better grip when you're using it.

    4. This cleaner is designed to remove all that stubborn, burnt-on food and grease from your oven, grill, and baking trays. It'll work wonders on stainless steel hobs too!

    5. These clothes drying hangers are specially designed for small garments like socks and knickers to help take up less space on your washing line. They can hold up to ten items each!

    6. You can drain the water from your pasta and rice without having to pour all the contents out into a colander thanks to this clip-on strainer! FYI, this is also seriously handy for draining the excess fat in your pan when cooking meat.

    7. This bucket has a generous 10-litre capacity and is collapsible(!) so you can easily store it when it's not in use. It's perfect for outside jobs like washing your car or decking, and its surface is easy to clean too.

    8. This highly-effective unblocker will dissolve the clogged up hair and soap buildup that's in your shower drain. It only needs an hour to work its magic before you can rinse it away!

    9. This bendable, extendable microfibre duster will make cleaning the hard-to-reach areas of your home a breeze. Unlike a traditional feather duster, it's also really easy to clean – remove the head, rinse it with warm water, and let it air dry before using again.

    10. 88% of reviewers gave this sink plunger five stars and I'm just saying, they can't all be wrong! It's got a bellows design that forces more air at the blockage than most plungers do, speeding up the time it takes to get the job done.

    11. This toilet brush has silicone bristles that will really ~get into~ the nooks and crannies of your toilet bowl. It's really easy to keep clean compared to regular brushes, and won't lose its shape over time either.

    12. If you've ever followed baking instructions to a tee but still ended up disappointed by the results, it may be because your oven temperature isn't what you think it is. This thermometer will give you an accurate reading of how hot your oven actually is, and it'll do it for under a fiver!

    13. You won't need any tools to install these stainless steel hooks – they've got a self-adhesive backing so you can put them up in seconds. If you ever decide you want to remove them, just use a hairdryer to heat up the adhesive and they'll come right off.

    14. Get rid of any sticker, glue, and sellotape residue in no time with this remover that works on pretty much all surfaces.

    15. This can colander will help you drain your tinned tuna without getting that gross brine all over your hands.

    16. The UniBond Aero 360 dehumidifier will absorb moisture from the air without being plugged into the mains or using batteries. The tab in its centre will absorb moisture from your room and turn it into a solution, which will then collect at the base of the container for you to empty out when it gets full.

    17. Make the most of the space in your kitchen cupboard with this tiered rack that you can stack your plates and bowls on. It's designed to neatly fit into corners and has a wide base to keep it solid and sturdy.

    18. These sachets of liquid descaler will sort out everything from your kettle to your iron in just ten minutes. Reviewers have awarded it a 4.7-star average from over 1,000 ratings, and at less than £2 you really can't go wrong.

    19. This six-sided grater has a fitted container you can attach to the bottom to collect your gratings!

    20. This laundry bag has a large capacity and soft-grip handle to make carrying it to and from the washing machine more comfortable. When you're not using it, you can easily collapse it down to save on space.

    21. This bathroom bin has separate compartments for your recyclable and non-recyclable rubbish (because your cardboard loo roll tubes don't belong with your dental floss.)

    22. This wall-mounted tidy will hold your broom, mop, and feather duster among other things with no problem, making it an ideal space-saving solution for the inside of your utility cupboard.
