    1. A stackable cutlery organizer that will *cue hallelujah music* tidy up your once nightmarish kitchen drawers and finally arrange silverware so you can open and close them with ease. Goodbye to the days of hodgepodge drawerfuls jammed with extra knives your roomie insisted would fit!

    2. A shower curtain liner complete with pockets for anyone who lives in a household in which everyone insists on keeping *at least* four hair products in their shower at all times. This'll free up clutter from tiny corners of tubspace and keep products at arm's reach.

    3. A mold and mildew remover to banish gross-looking grout that lives between your bath tiles. Those green-gray spots have taken up real estate along your walls for long enough — and since you're the only one in your home who cares about the sanctity of maintaining a clean shower, you'll want to arm yourself with this stat.

    4. A simple-yet-magnificent lid organizer with adjustable dividers so you can *cheers to the sky* finally retrieve missing lids that were previously just chucked in your cupboard by your lovely, but idle housemate.

    5. A two-in-one keyboard and screen cleaner because that bit of schmutz that's on your shared computer has been there since *checks calendar* the beginning of 2020, and it's finally time to hit the delete button on it.

    6. A set of shelf bins that'll transform your chaotic mess of groceries into a fridge worthy of making an appearance on MTV's Cribs. And if you live with forgetful roommates, you'll actually be able to see what you're stocked up on, so they don't end up piling in doubles of the things they already bought last week.

    7. A hanging T-shirt organizer if you're sharing a closet with someone who's ever exclaimed "aren't dresser drawers meant to stay open?!" These ingenious rolls can store anything from T-shirts to pants and even linen items, so you can take care of their sloppiness and maximize your wardrobe space.

    8. An Angry Microwave Mama to come to your rescue after many, many meals have splattered all over your microwave and are just beyond cleaning by hand. Just fill her up with vinegar, water, and lemon juice and let her unleash her steam on your messes!

    9. Finish booster powder to spruce up coffee-stained mugs that have been neglected by just about everyone in your family. One cycle with this, and they'll be back to their Day 1 state.

    10. A TubShroom that'll cancel living with lazy roomies who never collect their hair from the drain. This little tool ~neatly~ captures strands and product residue in the shower, so your pipes remain unclogged. And, according to reviewers, it's super duper easy to clean.

    11. Scrubbing bubbles cleaning gels to alleviate the need to arduously give your toilet a daily scrub down. They live on the side of the bowl and give your throne a good cleanse every time you flush, so you don't have to worry about brushing through grimy rings (and whatever else is in there) on the reg.

    12. A complete cooktop cleaning kit to finally get rid of those dried-on grease stains from the Bolognese sauce that overflowed from your family meal two months ago.

    13. And reusable oven liners that'll get ahead of unavoidable spills come dinnertime. These'll prevent long-term stove top and oven messes, because we all know *you know who* would rather skip out on clean up duty anyhow.

    14. A plant-based glass cleaning spray to a) tackle dried-on toothpaste stains that have been a part of your bathroom mirror for so long, they're starting to look like a decorative choice, and b) avoid leaving you with a lingering headache that can sometimes be caused by harmful fumes found in chemical-based products.

    15. A pet-grooming glove brush that'll take care of the tumbleweeds of fluff found blowing around your home, thanks to your roommate's cat. With a couple strokes of this, shedding problems will be reversed and their fave feline will look like they just stepped out from a royal grooming sesh.

    16. A convenient over-the-door hair tool holder to offer a hidden organization solution so the next time someone uses the flat iron, they know exactly where it lives. (Because strewn across your bathroom countertop is not it.)

    17. A roomy rotating makeup organizer for the resident beauty expert who could use some help in tidying up their collection of products — because your lack of shared counter space needs to be respected, and offering this as a gift could be a foolproof way to avoid having *that* conversation.

    18. An electrical cord box that has a faux wood top and white base to seamlessly camouflage itself within your living room and hide unsightly wires. (Because we know you're sick of seeing the ivy of cables that run from your S.O.'s game console down the sides of the wall.)

    19. A UV Light Sanitizer Box to zap any germs from your home's most-used gadgets (think: the mucky TV remote that's never been disinfected). And you can also wirelessly charge your phone on top as well!

    20. The Pink Stuff all-purpose paste (as seen on TikTok) that'll magically clean practically anything and everything. This potion in a paste reverses wall scuffs, cooked-on grease, soap scum, and whatever else could use a little abracadabra alakazam.

    21. Cotton storage bins to arrange your bath and bed essentials — and in a neat way that won't lead to an avalanche of linens being haphazardly stuffed in the closet by the last person who did laundry. These flip open from the front as well to save you from rummaging to the bottom of the pile, *and* you can label them!

    22. A pet hair removal roller so you can finally sit on your couch in your all-black outfit without looking like you're trying to coordinate with the messy person in question: your furry dog. Sayonara to the days of incessantly attacking yourself from head to toe with the lint roller.

    23. A bottle of the infamous Bar Keepers Friend to revive every scratched-up surface that makes you deeply sigh anytime you catch a glimpse of it. This stuff gets to work on rust, burnt grease, and even Sharpie marks, so this once daunting task can be over in mere minutes.

    24. A remarkably sturdy Command spray bottle mount that's lauded by reviewers for a) organizing and saving tons of space in messy cabinets and bathrooms, and b) holding the weight of your go-to cleaning goods without budging.

    25. A large two-toned basket to give your blankets and pillows a tidy, elegant place to live. Your living area deserves better and having an excess of fleece throws scattered everywhere does not fit into your 2021 goals of keeping a clean maisón.

    26. Heavy-duty cleaning wipes that will challenge intimidating messes — even on soft surfaces. Otherwise known as the perfect solution for the cleaner who wants to do *the least* when it comes to household maintenance.

    27. Stove crack covers because there is a higher being who wants to save you from pulling out the oven and sweeping up messes caused by your beloved, but careless, family members. *Goes back in time* plop these in place and watch that accidental spill of oats make you laugh instead of cry.

    28. Cute and customizable spice labels if minimalist packaging in Sans Serif fonts has you heart-eyed. This is an affordable and aesthetically pleasing way to clean up that disorganized, overrun spice drawer *and* with these on display, you'll finally be able to distinguish the parsley from the oregano.

    29. Howard Products wood polisher to wipe away years of water rings, scratches, and scuffs from surfaces you thought were beyond repair. This stuff tackles tough stains and acts as a conditioner to reveal a brighter grain and texture on your beloved furniture and floors.

    30. A multipurpose cleaner that will hit the rewind button x2 on pesky carpet stains *and* sticky gunk on kitchen cabinets. It's formulated with natural, plant-based ingredients and super fresh, amazing-smelling scents.

    31. A Command sponge caddy which'll hold the kitchen essential that helps you do your least favorite chore. This is *fantastic* for the household that simply cannot figure out how to keep their sponge dry and stench-free.

    32. A five-pan organizing rack to minimize noise (and mess) that's a result of a disaster zone-esque cupboard. Place these in there so your untidy beau finally gets the hint of how to organize the utensil that makes their eggs.

    33. A multi-use Everything Towel made of luxe muslin cotton to take care of kitchen spills, dish-drying, as a nurse-to-nap blanket for your little one, or as a hair towel for frizz-free absorption. These won't leave fibers on dishware like regular ol' towels and they hang dry in record speed.

    34. An automatic vacuum cleaner since your household has been full for what feels like 87 years, and no one likes to take responsibility for the cereal that spills under the table every morning. This peacekeeper sucks up crumbs and pet hair from hard and soft floors with the click of a remote, so you can get on with your other household chores.
