    1. A grout pen if your tiles have become so unsightly you've forgotten what color the lines are that's separating them. (Spoiler: they're white!)

    Promising review: "I just bought my first house and because of COVID I have not had the funds I wanted to fix it up. This was cheap and the backsplash in my new kitchen was an eyesore. I wasn't expecting much because of the price and I am absolutely stunned. My kitchen looks so much better! It was easy to use, no odor, and quick! I did two coats because the color was dark brown. Some places I did more but I didn't mind doing it because it was actually really satisfying. Definitely recommend this product!" —Kim

    2. A miraculous pumice stone to restore your hope if you thought deep cleaning your stained toilet was a lost cause. Simply wet the stone, gently scrub, and gross rings of horror, be gone!

    Promising review: "Wow, after 10 years in our house I had pretty much given up on getting our toilets looking nice again. You have kids who forget to flush? I thought I'd have a nasty-looking toilet for the rest of time...until I discovered this tool! Holy wow, when I tell you that I have spent HOURS trying to clean the toilet before (with no results) and this thing made it SPARKLING WHITE in less than five minutes I'm not joking! Never again will I settle for toilet rings or stained toilet bottoms. This tool will do the job for you, just scrub and it's gone!" —Lilac28

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

    3. Keurig cleaning cups if you're someone like me who didn't realize a coffeemaker needed to be descaled — turns out, it DOES. Just pop in one of the pods as you would a coffee cup, and proceed to be amazed (read: horrified) at the amount of residue that trickles into your cup of morning joe.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is an excellent product that I cannot say enough good things about. I had thrown away my current Keurig machine thinking it was broken. I decided to try to resurrect it using these cleaners and I am glad I did! One cup took care of years of neglect on my part (lesson learned). Because there was so much cleaning needed, I used two cups, and now the machine works perfectly. So glad I discovered this product and highly recommend. I am thinking a three-month interval to keep the machine in good condition. Thank you so much!" —Susan

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

    Promising review: "Rarely do I ever write reviews but I'm so impressed with this kit that I just had to! I have a 3-year-old Maytag gas range and never having owned one myself, I definitely slacked on keeping it pristine. Sure I would wipe it down after cooking but didn't realize the grease that gets 'baked' on around the burners. Which left it looking dull and kinda gross. I pretty much lost hope that it would ever look like new again but then I bought this kit. The scraper was a miracle worker. It took off every spec of baked on anything leaving my range looking like it was just out of the box!!" —Jen G.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    5. Or oven liners to get ahead of unavoidable spills come dinnertime. These'll prevent stove top and oven messes, so you can give your arms a much deserved rest after prepping all those meals for the whole fam.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    These reusable mats are heavy duty and can be cut according to where they need to be placed. They're also dishwasher safe, and safe for temperatures of up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit!

    Promising review: "I love these oven liners. We moved into a house a few years ago with liners in the oven and I am amazed that I did not know about these before! They have literally saved me from EVER cleaning my stove. They protect the bottom of the stove from spills and are so easy to clean. We just replaced our stove and my first purchase was a new set of liners. They should last for years. These were so easy to trim to fit. Very thick and nice quality. I ordered two so I could also line my toaster oven." —Amazon Customer

    6. A cutlery drawer organizer that will *cue hallelujah music* tidy up your once nightmarish kitchen drawers — and finally arrange silverware in a picture-worthy set up, so you can open and close drawers with ease.

    amazon.com

    One tray fits up to 24 pieces of cutlery.

    Promising review: "THE BEST silverware storage organizer compartments I’ve EVER had in my entire life! We have a large family and therefore have the need for a lot of silverware. Unfortunately we have a small shallow and narrow drawer in our house but it was always full! Constantly disorganized before, and now amazingly organized. The only reason I would hesitate would be if your drawer is not adequately deep, but from reading reviews people said if they had 3.5 inches of depth it would be just fine which is exactly what I have and there’s adequate drawer depth for me. I measured my skinny drawer and realized I still had space for two units and took the plunge and am so glad I did! Silverware goes quickly from the dishwasher straight into the drawer and you don’t have to stack perfectly to put a lot in!!! ADD IT TO YOUR CART NOW, you’ll be glad you did if you have the same problem as we did!" —oceantiff

    Get it from Amazon for $9.56.

    7. A pack of hanging vacuum bags if your fashion tastes are best described as "too many clothes for the amount of wardrobe real estate I have." These space-savers have airtight seals that will make even bulky winter coats flat as a pancake — and they can be hung neatly in your closet instead of folded and stuffed into a regular ol' vacuum bag.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Bought these storage bags two weeks ago to pack my winter clothes for summer, and they did the job perfectly. They are large and sturdy. I like its five-hook design. I can store five women's jackets or four big men's jackets in ONE bag. The long bags also fit my dresses. The biggest reason I bought these bags is that I do not need to fold my seasonal clothes; just hang, zip, vacuum, done! Super convenient. Extremely happy with this space bags. I will definitely order more!" —Jia Yan

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $29.99 (available in three colors).

    8. A laptop rising stand since the time has finally come to ~elevate~ your WFH setup. Ta-to to the days of sitting stooped over your laptop for hours on end, now your screen can finally meet your eye level!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This laptop stand is amazing! My husband works from home and constantly has horrible back problems. The stand definitely improved his posture and decreased his back pain…of course this ain’t no chiropractor or good exercise…BUT the stand definitely makes the difference as part of improving posture and back problems. The stand also aids him since he is visually impaired and can only really see from one eye. The stand allows for better viewing of the computer while at a affordable price; we use this product for his chrome book. Laptop fits well and allows for the keyboard to be placed underneath - making this a space saver! Delivery was on time, product got here in perfect condition and has held up until now. Assembly is super simple and straight forward." —Yvette V.

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99 (available in nine colors).

    9. A glass desktop dry erase board to optimize your workspace and save you from hoarding (and losing) a bajillion sticky note reminders. It even comes with a hidden storage drawer so you can *appear* to be keeping everything organized, even if your schedule might not be.

    The dry erase board with the words "Isn't this fabulous?!!!" written out on it
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing is absolutely perfect- highly recommend for those of you working from home. I needed a white board but really didn’t have the space nor did I think a stand up board would be functional for me. This is the perfect solution. I have it set out right below my extra monitor and it is at my fingertips whenever I need to jot down an action item for myself. It has significantly helped to reduce my number of sticky notes. Helps to make my desk space cleaner and more efficient looking which helps me to work better. The black marker that comes with it has a nice little eraser on the top that is sufficient for any erasing needs. I did also buy a pack of thin dry erase markers to go with it. Also you can put the cord for your computer under the white board- there is a little gap that is about half an inch tall or so. Highly recommend!"—Shannon

    Get it from Amazon for $21.49.

    10. A convenient cable management sleeve if you've ever feared the forest of wires beneath your home office desk. This zippable cover conceals unsightly cables (and transforms areas where you'd usually keep a lot of electronics!) for a less hazardous home environment.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These were EXTREMELY useful to me, I like them a lot. I have a very busy workspace at home, with two monitors and a tablet and big keyboard, speakers, NAS drive, etc., and it was very cluttered. But with these I managed to clean it up A TON. Now it looks much nicer, is much cleaner, and safer. Definitely would recommend getting these if you have a bunch of stray cables hanging around your desk area and such. After I zip-tied all of my big bundles of cables and adapters and such together and up and down the desk, I wrap these around the bundles for a nice, clean...less hazardous look —Aaron

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    11. A drain snake to avoid a call to your plumber and ~satisfyingly~ clean out the creatures you never knew existed in your bathroom pipes.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "So useful! Thought I’d never be able to clear my drain after using gallons and gallons of Drano (which add up). But these took out the hair that was clogging my shower for months within a minute! Such easy use and definitely would recommend this to anyone who needs it." —Cal

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in two sizes).

    12. Foaming tablets if your garbage disposal really hasn't been tended to, like, ever. These will do the trick to deeply cleanse the underside of the splashguard and the interior side walls.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a fun product to use! I do recommend using it with a disposal scrub brush, since I hadn’t cleaned my disposal in...many many centuries...it took a little scrubbing in addition to get all the grime out. This made the process MUCH easier though, and I love the foam that bubbles up. It’s as fun to watch as it is good at cleaning. I’d buy again sometime." —Leslie

    Get it from Amazon for $3.98 for a bag with four uses.

    13. A fragrant candle that emits a delicious year-round scent to eliminate funky smells from lurking around your home. Think: A ~delightfully~ potent fish dinner taken down by notes of warm hazelnut and yummy vanilla.

    14. A basket caddy because a shower helper that looks this sophisticated, holds your most-used products, and prevents clutter from your tub and shower edges? The definition of a godsend, if you ask me.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "We have a walk-in shower and had nowhere to store shower products except for the floor... that just wasn't cutting it so we bought these storage baskets and are extremely satisfied with the purchase! It's the perfect amount of storage and I love the holes at the bottom of the baskets for easy cleaning." —Carrinabee

    Get it from Amazon for $10.40+ (available in two sizes and five colors).

    15. Affresh dishwasher tablets if you've never thought to clean the appliance that does your least favorite chore for you. These dissolve residue buildup and blast away foul odors to get your machine cleaning dishes like it used to.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I never knew I needed dishwasher cleaner. I found this product in a BuzzFeed article. The reviews were so great I just knew i had to try it. I was pretty blown away by what the inside of my dishwasher looked like after. It wasn’t funky dirty per se, but it definitely looked aged. It was also noticeably fresher once opened versus just meh." —Shasha

    Get a pack of six tablets from Amazon for $5.99.

    16. And some for your washing machine, because laundry day doesn't have to stink. These fast-acting tablets eradicate funky smells and nasty buildup from the edges of the drum in just a couple of cycles.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I never knew I was supposed to clean my HE machine after about three years of use. I just did it for the first time, and the water was disgusting. I had to vacuum out crud from the barrel after the tub clean cycle was done, and run two more rinses without any clothes/detergent to see clear water. I’m grossed out that my clothes haven’t really been getting clean, and will make this tub clean a monthly routine now." —Lauren&Aaron

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $6.99 (available in three sizes).

    17. A collection of cotton storage bins to arrange your bath and bed essentials in a neat and distinct way that won't lead to an avalanche of linens toppling over you every time you open the closet. These flip open from the front as well to save you from rummaging to the bottom of the pile, *and* you can label them!

    Get them from Towels by Gus for $24.99+ (available in three sizes and two colors).

    18. 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 overrun spice drawer *and* with these on display, you'll finally be able to distinguish the parsley from the oregano.

    19. An expandable shelf organizer to clean the clutter in that kitchen cupboard that's bursting with mugs, bowls, glassware, whatever else you've managed to stuff in there. Because the time to Marie Kondo your cabinet is now... ahh, would you just look at that swoon-worthy organization!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love these Seville expandable shelves; they have completely transformed my kitchen cabinets. Before I bought them, I was stacking things on top of other things in order to take full advantage of the cabinets. What a hassle to get to stuff! These shelves were PERFECT for turning those two-shelf cabinets into four-shelf. They are super sturdy, easily expanded. Also, I find that they are quite attractive and blend nicely into the rest of the cabinet. Unless people intend to have their cabinets custom-built with add-ons in the same finish as the cabinets, I couldn't imagine they would find a more attractive expandable shelf. Plus, the metal is covered with some kind of nonstick coating that helps protect things from scratches and lends the shelf a nice matte finish. I purchased several different kinds of shelves at once, and these are by far the nicest I bought. Couldn't be happier with this purchase!" —S. Blades

    Get it from Amazon for $24.85 (available in other styles).

    20. An aesthetically timeless storage bed which lifts up instead of having drawers that pull out — the perfect solution if your bed happens to be wedged in a tight, awkward spot. Plus, it compensates for the lack of closet space you might be experiencing if you have a city-based apartment (#me).

    Ikea

    Promising review: "Absolutely great!! Huge storage compartment. Beautiful bed, easy to keep the room clutter free — especially when you have a teenage boy. Easy to open and close, and even easier to make the bed when it's open/up. Great material, fairly simple to put together (MUST FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS). Definitely worth EVERY PENNY!!" —Nandab22

    Get it from Ikea for $499 (available in sizes full/double and queen; and two finishes).

    21. A two-in-one keyboard and screen cleaner because that snack you eat every single day while you work definitely leaves some crumbs in your laptop — and it's finally time to take care of it.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is the second one that I have purchased because I LOVE IT! I love fact that it is small and compact enough to either sit on my desk at home or fit in my desk at work. I also enjoy the fact it is dual-sided — one side to wipe the screen and the other to brush away dust, dirt, food crumbs from my keyboard. It is a great buy and worth it. Not to mention it is made by a company with quality products, OXO." —Kiki.L.G

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    22. A sheet of stick-on sound dampeners so you don't have to worry about opening and closing kitchen cabinets quietly if you're a morning person and your roommate is a chronic snoozer.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These work very well to dampen the sounds of my idiot roommates slamming cabinet doors at all hours of the day. Just make sure you're wiping down the part of the cabinet they'll stick to before applying them. The adhesive is good and should hold for a while." —LMA

    Get a sheet of 100 from Amazon for $5.99.

    23. A dishwasher magnet for a simple yet effective way for everyone in your household to *finally* determine if they can grab a clean spoon to eat their late-night ice cream.

    24. 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. Plus, you'll actually be able to see what you're stocked up on, so you don't end up piling in doubles of the things you forgot you bought last week.

    The set includes: two wide drawers, two narrow drawers, one can dispenser drawer, and one egg drawer.

    Promising review: "It's nice to be able to find things in the refrigerator and be able to pull out the whole tray container to see what's in the back of the fridge. I don't know if this happens to you, but I find my way to the back every so often, and come to find out a jar in the back expired a year ago. Now I can see everything and use it." —BookBroke

    Get a six-piece set from Amazon for $29.95.

    27. A wood repair kit that will revive furniture and fixtures you thought were beyond help. These handy little markers perfectly touch up pet scratches and shoe scuffs that have gone untreated to reveal wood that looks brand spankin' new.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "While refinishing a China cabinet, I put a paint brush with furniture stripper on a tarp on the dining room table and forgot about it. The stripper bled through the tarp and took the finish off a 2” x 3” area of the tabletop. I thought the table was ruined. I ordered this product because I was desperate. I didn’t think it would help. I was wrong! The markers worked beautifully. Only I know the table was damaged." —Norasusan

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    28. A coat rack and storage shelf to bring style, convenience, and order to a usually chaotic entryway — otherwise known as an extension of the closet space you were promised but never given.

    The coat rack
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "It’s a great fit in my small house! It’s lightweight and I was able to put it together by myself with the tool that was supplied. Fits lots of shoes and coats. I don’t have it mounted to the wall since we aren’t allowed to put holes in them, and it still holds up well!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $75.99 (available in two styles).

    29. A roomy rotating makeup organizer for the beauty expert who could really use some help in tidying up their collection of products that helps them achieve their no-makeup, makeup look.

    Promising review: "I love this thing so much. I got the clear kind and it looks fancier than I thought it would. It was super easy to assemble (the instructions are on the box, easy to follow, and have pictures). I also think it’s great how customizable it is because I have bottles of all shapes and this design was able to utilize the vertical space in my bathroom cabinet!" —Akash B.

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

    Get it from Amazon for $99.

    31. A set of ~luxe~ velvet slip covers to update your drab, worn-in sitting area with a living room glow up that is a lot more affordable than buying a brand-new couch. And it couldn't be easier for a DIY newb since you just slide these babies over your seating area and secure them with nonslip straps.

    amazon.com

    This four-piece set comes with a base cover and three individual cushion covers.

    Promising review: "I have never been so excited about a slipcover. Total transformation of our couch and love seat. I was worried about it not working on our leather couch, but it stays on really well due to the straps and the separate cushion covers. LOVE." —Brian/Liz

    In addition to giving your mattress just the right about of cushion, it'll also help eliminate odor thanks to the green tea.

    Promising review: "I bought this mainly just to add 2 inches to a mattress so it would clear a wooden box frame. When I first got it, I was worried that it would be much too soft (I've slept on a firmer mattress for years). I slept like a baby the first night on it. I've been sleeping on it now for over a week and I'm consistently sleeping better. I've also noticed that I have less lower back pain when I wake up, and throughout the day. To say that I'm happy with my purchase is an understatement." —C Chapman

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in three thicknesses and five sizes).

    33. 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.

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this stuff! We have an older log cabin that was pretty neglected, both inside and out. Our wood floors were faded and worn. The outside logs looked dry and faded. I decided to give this a try before paying to have the floors sanded and refinished; and also outside before having the whole log home re-stained. This stuff is absolutely amazing. It soaks into the wood and really revitalizes it. In spots that the wood soaks it in quickly, a second or third treatment may be needed. I just squirted it on the floor and mopped it in with a mircofiber mop. Outside, I added it to a rag and simply wiped the logs. It's been a week now and this is not a temporary fix like you might see with orange glo or others that leave a greasy, temporary finish. What an awesome buy!!!" —Frank T.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.29.

    34. 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 TV down the sides of the wall.)

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I purchased this cable box to hide a bunch of cords for a router, mini cell phone tower, etc. I shopped around a bit because I wanted something that looked nicer than just a plastic box. This was the best solution I found, I like the faux wood top of it, I actually wish the sides were the same design but again I do like the aesthetic of this box. It fits a ton of cords and wires. This was a fast and satisfying fix to my cord problem. I will be purchasing another one of these boxes for a different area of the house. It was worth the money for me as it looked better than the other cable boxes I could find and it really did solve the problem." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in three designs).

    35. Light dimming sheets because that annoying LED beaming from your TV, computer charger, and just about every power outlet in your bedroom has been keeping you up at night for the past 10 years. It's finally time to block it out once and for all.

    amazon.com

    This game-changing pack comes in a variety of 100 peel-and-stick dimmers shaped to fit lights on most electrical appliances.

    Promising review: "Ingenious little idea. I suffer from migraines, so I know how a little LED light can irritate you in an otherwise pitch black room. This product does a great job of dimming those harsh LED indicators that EVERYTHING seems to have nowadays. They are neat, not unsightly." —Jarom A. Daszko

    Get them from Amazon for $6.49.

    36. A disgustingly satisfying set of Sticky Stake insect traps that will make pesky gnats, thrips, and fruit flies think twice about coming anywhere near your precious collection of plant babies.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Holy cow these suckers work! I'm so grossed out by the result, but at the same time I have a sick sense of satisfaction. I used these in my house plants that are breeding fungus gnats like crazy. I used them in conjunction with beneficial nematodes, and they definitely cut down on the number of gnats in our house. Unfortunately I added a new houseplant, plus repotted one that had outgrown its prior home, and we are wrapped up in them again. I'm buying another package of sticky traps as soon as I finish this review!" —Megan

    Get it from Amazon for $6.67.

    37. A TubShroom to cancel showering with a pool of water beneath your feet. This little tool ~neatly~ captures hair and product residue so your drains remain unclogged. And, according to reviewers, it's super duper easy to clean.

    Promising review: "I can't say enough good things about this product. I have a family of four, and would frequently have to snake our shower drain. It appears I won't be having that problem ever again. I even give my dog baths, and this collects the hair. You don't know how much hair you wash down your drain until you use this!" —Aaron Morlock

    38. Blind dusters with microfiber sleeves because, sure, having your windows dressed with decorative blinds is nice, but did you know that area is a total magnet for not-so-cute dust bunnies?! With one quick swipe, you'll remove allergy-causing particles faster than old you would sneeze and exclaim "bless you!" to thin air.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I hate to clean blinds. I've tried every method you could imagine but none really did a good job. While looking at the internet for something to make the job easier i found the Hiware window blind cleaner duster brush. The price was more than affordable so I thought I would give it a shot. This little device is genius and the microfiber sleeves are so easy to throw in the washer and ready for the next time." —Northwest Gal

    Promising review: "This glove is perfect for our one kitty who hates to be brushed. Our family recently added kitty number three, a big beautiful long-haired Maine Coon who despises being brushed or bathed. It was such a struggle as fine cat hair started taking over our life. Honestly, I did not think this grooming glove would work, but let me just say it is wonderful. Our kitty Nicki just loves the feeling it gives him, and we love the astounding amount of kitty his hair that is now in the glove and not on every surface in our home. Thank you wonderful seller. We LOVE this glove." —Colleen5991

    40. A handcrafted sponge holder and drainer to *finally* ditch the kitchen stink you've been catching wiffs of every time you do the dishes. This simply gorge piece of pottery is pretty and practical.

    This holder keeps your sponge elevated and has a small, built-in hole that helps with drainage to the base — so it has a chance to dry out before the next round of dish cleaning.

    Promising review: "Useful and so pretty! I am the person who constantly can't find the sponge because it gets left at the bottom of the sink and all dishes get piled on top of it (which is also super gross). At the same time, I didn't want anything to hold the sponge on the counter because I try to keep the counter as clear as possible. This solves both issue. The holder as a little hole to drain the water, which then lands on the plate below, meaning the sponge gets dry and all the gross water can simply be cleaned off the thing. Also, it's so pretty I don't mind it taking up counter space!" —Monica

    41. A vent cleaning system that will have you exclaiming "Holy lint balls!" once you discover how necessary it is to do periodic maintenance on your dryer. This system effectively eliminates buildup that can lead to long-term damage.

    Promising review: "I am so glad I bought this device. After about 20 minutes of use, which included assembly and experimentation, I had succeeded in pulling out an ugly glob of wet, compacted lint from my dryer vent pipe. That huge pile of yuck on the ground represented about 13 years of accumulation. It also represented a fire hazard and drain on my electrical bill. So, I'm glad I bought this device. Clothes dry in FAR less time. Even though the device is intuitive and easy to assemble and use, there are clearly written instructions that also give some advice on dryer connections. Now that I'm unclogged, I plan to use the device periodically to prevent this problem in the future." —Couerleroi

    42. A set of insulated, noise-blocking blackout curtains to dampen outside sounds and light, so you can finally take your afternoon naps in peace and not get disturbed by loud honking traffic or blinding sunlight.

    amazon.com

    Plus, these come in so many colors that you don't have to sacrifice your home decor style for function!

    Promising review: "I live in an apartment complex full of little goblins people call children. They like to run up and down the sidewalk for no discernible reason yelling at the top of their lungs while their parents watch on in mild amusement drinking wine on their patio. Lovely family time, I guess. So, naturally, I put these on every window I could. And now my evenings are much quieter, without sacrificing the look of my apartment. They’re easy to pull back during the day when the goblins are away and easy to cover when they emerge in the evenings. So I can just cover my windows and put on a movie and it’s like they’re not even there! These block out a lot of light and sound from the neighborhood and match my decor nicely. I put sheer white curtains over these to create a softer look in the bedroom and it’s gorgeous! Saves my sanity and creates a nice atmosphere." —jessie & sky

    43. A door draft stopper for an effective way to finally seal out the bone-chilling breeze that flagrantly invites itself into your home during the colder months.

    This also works as a noise muffler and prevents other unwelcome guests of the creep crawly variety from wandering through your front door.

    Promising review: "Sometimes you have a problem. And you see a product that says it will solve it. So you spend (in this case) a small amount of money. And 90% of the time, it doesn't solve your problem. But this product? Works exactly like its suppose too. I'm not the least bit handy and I attached it in minutes and then stared at it for additional few minutes because I couldn't believe that was it. But it was. I got it to cover the space under the door for drafts (and vermin). It works for that purpose." —tati13

    44. A pair of genius (and might I say adorable) pull strings, so you never have to accidentally tug on the fan when you just want some dang light in your bedroom!

    Promising review: "They're not readily noticeable, so when a guest sees them, it's like they found a little easter egg, so it becomes a conversation piece. Not only are they just adorable, they're USEFUL! You never have to think twice or fumble around with the pulls to figure out which is the fan and which is the light. They're of a solid and heavy (as in they've got some weight on them; they're not cheap little things) - you can't beat the price for the great quality you get! I'd buy these again if we had another fan." —Ashley

    45. A grill scrubber to erase years(!) of dried-on goop and grime from BBQs and stainless-steel utensils — little to no elbow grease required.

    Promising review: "My grill accumulated a lot of crud as a result of many cookouts. I tried to keep it as clean as possible with a wire brush and various cleaning pads and cleaners. I never could get the rack and grates to look like new. There was always a layer of permanent food residue, carbon, and other debris that defied removal. I decided to give the Magic Stone Grill Cleaner a shot. Surprise! Surprise! This is truly a magic stone. It removed everything from the grill parts that I worked on and left them looking like new. The cleaning process did put grooves in the bottom of the stone and that helped to get the sides cleaned off as well." —Duffer.

    46. A multi-purpose cleaning solution to revive every scratched-up surface that gives you a headache 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.

    Promising review: "I was so bummed when I scratched up my pretty white sink with pots and pans. I thought I'd need to have it replaced or try to sand it and refinish it somehow, but I bought this stuff as a last ditch effort to fix it myself. It takes some elbow grease to make them go away, the scratches don't just wipe off, but if you scrub at them for a few minutes they melt away pretty quickly. After two rounds my sink looks nearly brand new again. It also worked on a few mineral stains in my bathtub that I thought were permanent after soft scrub failed to remove them. Again, a little of this stuff, the scrubby side of a blue sponge, a little bit of effort and they were gone!" —Dan Borden

    These work on almost any surface: leather, fabric, furniture, hardwood, pans, metal, WHEREVER. And! They'll clean up grease, oil, tar, dirt, ink, lipstick, nail polish, food, and a whole lot more.

    Promising review: "These are awesome! The size of the container is large and so was the quantity I received. The wipes are huge and tough, great for scrubbing! I cleaned my whole house with these and they removed stains I haven't been able to get out for a while. I also tried them on my walls and they did not remove the paint. Also, they smell fantastic: no chemical smell whatsoever. These are a great deal on Amazon, and I will be purchasing them again!" —Suze
