    45 Problem-Solving Products That Work So Well, You'll Think You've Died And Gone To Heaven

    You're not dreaming — AirPod cleaners and bedsheet holders really *do* exist.

    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 bottle-emptying kit if you're someone who adds water to ensure you get every last drop out of your shampoo, dish soap, etc. Instead of diluting your most-used products (who wants watery lotion?!), turn them over with this lil' gadget in place so all that good stuff can to come to ~a head~.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    The kit comes with small, medium, large, and extra-large attachments, so you should be able to use it with any bottle in your house.

    Promising review: "Best invention ever! For years I have struggled to get the last inch of lotion out of the bottle. I buy the big pump bottle, and the pump does not get the last bit of lotion. There was no way to get it out, and adding water to lotion does not work for me. This screws on, and you flip the bottle over, and now you can get ALL the lotion easily — empty bottle!! It works." —Sue

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in packs of two and six).

    2. A tube of Glossier Boy Brow to fill and shape sparse-looking brows. With just a couple swipes, you can achieve fluffy, full, natural-looking eyebrows that won't collapse out of place.

    Anamaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed editor AnaMaria Glavan loves this stuff and tell us: "This magic bottle is proof that not all heroes wear capes. The creamy formula, which comes in blonde, black, clear, and brown (which is what I used!), goes on smoothly and doesn’t require a lot of product to do the job. I used the wand to brush baby hairs in the beginning/middle of my brow upwards, and then brushed the longer, toddler-like hairs at the end of my eyebrows, sideways. And one coat was more than enough! Boy Brow does exactly what the Glossier brand claims to do; it gives me a filled-in eyebrow that doesn’t look filled in. The finish looks natural, which is exactly what I wanted — my facial caterpillars have never looked better." 

    Get it from Glossier for $16 (available in five shades).

    3. A carpet cleaner that works so well, you might think it's magic. Don't worry — your eyes aren't deceiving you; this formula literally clears up any evidence of (horrific) accidents, sticky soda spills, pet stains, and shoe markings from your light-colored carpet.

    Promising review: "It’s a miracle in a bottle. My German shepherd mix decided to pull a black fountain pen out of my purse and chew it to pieces on my beige carpet while I was sleeping — this cleaner lifted the stain, and now it’s like the devastation my dog caused never happened! As soon as I saw it lifting the ink, I got back on Amazon and bought more bottles. I will never let myself run out of this. I use it in my Bissell carpet cleaner for some crazy good cleaning power. I’ve become that weird lady that goes around singing the praises of a cleaning product. No regrets." —L. Logan

    Get it from Amazon for $11.69 (also available in multiple packs).

    4. AirPod cleaners to clear out the gunk that's stopping you from getting the full effect of your summer jams on your run. Just squish the putty square into your AirPod speaker, peel off, and proceed to be amazed (read: horrified) at the debris that's been dulling your sound.

    Promising review: "This is by far the most effective way of removing the magnetic dust from your case or any dust/wax from the mesh of the AirPods. This pack will also last you quite a while, so there’s no need to be frugal with how much you’re buying. Important note: If you wait too long to clean your AirPods, the magnetic dust eventually scratches deep into the case beyond what can be cleaned off. With this product, you can catch that dust early and prevent lasting damage to your AirPod case." —Jelani Nunes

    Get 24 from Amazon for $15.99.

    5. A bug bite suction tool if the only thing that gets you down around this time of year are nasty 'quitos. In fact, I just had lunch outside only to find one nibbling my ankle, so yeah — you bet I'm gonna arm myself with this sucker that drains out the irritant and stops swelling and itching in. its. tracks.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am a magnet for bites of all kinds and carry topical medicines with me at all times, so I figured this would be a good product to see if it really works. It arrived Monday, and Tuesday morning I woke up with a bug bite on my arm, so I used this little tool (three times per the instructions), and immediately after use it stopped itching! And less than 24 hours later the bite gone! There is a very faint red mark from using the thing but a small price to pay IMO. Bottom line: It’s awesome. I’m carrying it with me everywhere!" —Rebecca

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95 (available in two colors).

    6. A set of ~car wash wipes~ that'll conveniently give your most prized possession a quick scrub 'n' polish when you can't make it to see the professionals. Basically anytime your drive involves a showering of mud and dirt, you'll know these handy, no-water-required wipes have got your back *and* bumper 😉.

    amazon.com

    They're extra large and pre-moistened to remove dirt, dust, road grime, and more.

    Promising review: "This was a lifesaver! I was driving behind a cement truck when it decided to pepper my car with tiny splatters of cement to the hood and roof of my car. I was able to pull over and take out my Wash Wipes and get to work. I cleaned up all the cement from my black car before it dried to the paint, and it only took one wipe (both sides) to clean the hood free of all cement." —Wicket571

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $10.64.

    7. A six-port outlet that — ta-da — SWIVELS, which allows you to plug stuff in behind your couch and other areas without the cord ends protruding or getting damaged.

    Amazon

    This even has two USB ports. Bless.

    Promising review: "Brilliant! Very handy wall plug that not only adds extra outlets, but they can be turned sideways to use, so will fit snugly behind furniture! It appears to be a surge protector too! I will buy more of these!" —L.C.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.93.

    8. Bar Keepers Friend cleanser for the pots and pans that have been passed down to you since college and have 10-plus years of grime caked onto them. This stuff is no joke and will get to work on burned-on stains in just under 20 minutes!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is like magic! Straight-up wizardry. I love it! I initially bought it to clean my sink, which is porcelain. I'd say it took less than a minute after making a paste with Bar Keepers Friend to clean the sink up to a nearly new shine. It's easy to find bunches of ways to use this stuff, and each application is better than the last. Stainless steel, porcelain, ceramic, copper, brass, fiberglass, Corian, chrome, and aluminum. See? Magic! Anyhow, I've used it in the bathroom, to clean stainless steel pots and pans, and on a 17-year-old Revere Ware tea kettle (which I thought would never be restored to its former loveliness, BTW). This is a product that I will buy again and again and will happily recommend to anyone." —Nicci Stephenson

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $6.99.

    9. A nose hair wax kit in case you're looking to avoid eye-watering pain that comes from tweezing those stragglers beneath your nose. This kit contains everything you need to keep that area hair-free for up to four weeks!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    You'll get 100 grams of nose wax beads, 30 wax applicators, 10 mustache protectors, a measuring cup, and 15 paper cups at your disposal.

    Promising review: "I highly recommend this product. The instructions were super easy to follow, and it worked perfectly! I was a little nervous to pull the sticks out once the two minutes were up; however, it didn't even hurt. I expected it to hurt momentarily and my eyes to water, but neither was true! If you wanna get rid of them pesky nose hairs...snag this product!!!" —Julie J.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    10. A natural all-day deodorant from Athena Club sure to keep the summertime sweats at bay. This stuff is plant based, free of aluminum, and goes on clear so you can wear your fave black top sans white streaks.

    Athena Club

    BuzzFeed writer Katy Herman has put this to use and raves: "I know deodorant doesn't sound particularly exciting or fun, but I'm actually excited about this little life upgrade. I just received a sample of this a couple days ago, and I think I've found my new go-to deo?! I've always felt like natural deodorant never works, and I have sacrificed on my usual cruelty-free ethos and my icky feeling about using a deodorant that contains aluminum to keep using a major name brand that I felt worked better. But when I first swiped on this stuff, I loved the pleasant but mild smell and already felt like it was different. I will confess, and I know no one here will judge me, that I have skipped several shower days in quarantine with my family, and this empowered me to skip another. I'm not going anywhere, and my parents love me unconditionally, OK??? But I also felt totally fresh with this stuff on — I stayed dry and smelling A-OK pretty much all day. So far, I totally recommend this!"

    Get it from Athena Club for $12 (available in three scents).

    11. A set of Wad-Free pads invented to make sheet-washing day a little more enjoyable. If you've ever pulled out a tangled mess of bedcovers clumped together with other (sopping) items, you're going to want to listen up: These time-savers clip onto the ends of sheets to ensure everything *stays separate* so you don't have to do multiple drying cycles.

    Wad-Free is a small biz that was launched during the pandemic. Cyndi, the founder, learned CAD (computer-aided design) to create the pads. And 5% of profits are donated to the American Brain Tumor Association.

    Promising review: "Wow!!! You wonder if things like this really work and well, I can absolutely confirm it does! First, I was impressed that the package came with two of the devices because I was only expecting one. So there was one for the fitted sheet, and [one for] the flat sheet. Finally, I tried it out, and my sheets not only did NOT wad up, they came out of the dryer feeling fresher, feeling more dry, and unwrinkled! I will be buying a set of these for each of my immediate family members and close friends! What a great gift!!!" —katy

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    12. An automatic scrubbing brush so you can eliminate unsightly grout with a detachable oscillating brush head that'll provide *instant* gratification. This brightens up the dingy look of backsplashes and floor tiles in your kitchen and bathroom so well that you'll probably find the whole process incredibly therapeutic.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Last night I was reborn. What is the cause of this renewed zest for life, you might ask? It was the use of the Rubbermaid Reveal Power Scrubber on my shower grout. It elevated a simple baking soda-and-water solution to alchemical proportions. My pink-tiled shower, the one that came with my scummy apartment, the one that never looks clean no matter how many hours of backbreaking labor I put in, now looks bright, clean, and full of promise. An otherwise disgusting and dated, purely utilitarian part of my home is now art. TL;DR: This this is absolutely incredible." —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "For anyone who might be skeptic, please allow me to put you at ease. If you have hyperhidrosis, meaning it can be 9 degrees outside and you're still sweating under your arms, this product has the potential to change your life. I would sweat THROUGH a sport coat before noon. Enter the Sweat Block product. I've had it for three weeks, and it is life changing. I DO NOT sweat under my arms anymore. I'm still on the original box that I bought three weeks ago. I had to write a review after I was cleaning the garage today in 85-degree heat...I was sweating through my shirt on my back...BUT NOT MY UNDERARMS. It is amazing!" —Frosty McGee

    14. A pack of stainless-steel cleaning wipes that'll rid your (usually) shiny surfaces of grubby fingerprints, residue, and watermarks in just a couple swipes. You spent an arm and a leg on that state-of-the-art fridge, so you'll want to see it gleaming no matter how many hands have been all over it.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I purchased these wipes to clean my stainless-steel refrigerator. I wanted something that would remove water stains and restore the shine, and these wipes delivered! After a few minutes of vigorously wiping back and forth along the grain, my refrigerator was looking brand new. I was impressed with the results and noticed that the canister said the wipes could be used on sinks, so I tried one in my stainless steel sink to see what would happen. As you can see from the pictures (above), after just a few minutes of cleaning, my sink was sparkling and incredible! I began cleaning all of the stainless-steel appliances in the kitchen, and just a few wipes and 20 minutes later my kitchen was looking better than ever." —Connor

    15. A Filtrete air purifier because you've gone long enough with allergens like pet hair, dander, and dust flagrantly floating around your home. This true HEPA filter sucks up bacteria- and odor-filled particles to improve indoor air quality, so your space can finally feel clean every day. Now you and Snickles can live in harmony sans litter box stink!

    It cleans a room of up to 250 square feet and has a timer and built-in replacement indicator to tell you when to replace its (included) filters.

    Promising review: "I’m obsessed with this! Definitely worth the money! I have three large shedding dogs, and this has decreased the amount of dander, smell, and hair in my home! I just cleaned my house, and I could notice a huge difference in dust!" —Kayla Hastie

    Get it from Amazon for $154.48.

    16. A hard-boiled egg timer you'll wonder how you lived without once you put it to use. This lil' guy changes color to indicate how your eggs are cookin', so you can ditch the "how long should I" googling you do every time you decide to boil an egg.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Is this 100% necessary? No...however, it does make one thing a little easier for me in the morning. Instead of watching the pot and waiting for the water to boil to start the timer you can just put the NobleEgg in the pot with your eggs, start the heat and just wait for your eggs to be done. Can't wait to give some as gifts!" —BaileyBoo

    Get it from Amazon for $6.98.

    17. Affresh dishwasher cleaning tablets so you can keep the appliance that does your least favorite chore for you in tip-top shape. These dissolve residue buildup and blast away foul odors to get your machine cleaning dishes like it's supposed to.

    amazon.com

    Promising Review: "Works extremely well. We haven't done any cleaning on our dishwasher in five years, and the sliding dish trays were tough to pull out or push in, there was detergent buildup all over the inside, and there was a milky film on all our cups. I bought Affresh, ran the dishwasher with two tablets while it was empty, and the difference was astounding. There was still some buildup, and I figured it would require another cycle, so I popped another two tablets in, ran the machine a second time, and now it looks and sounds brand new. No more film on the glasses, no more dirty dishes from clogged sprayers, and no more odors or buildup around the door seals. I'm going to be buying Affresh from now on, and hopefully it will extend the life of my dishwasher." —Martoune

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    18. A chic wooden knife stand designed with magnets on both sides that hold up to eight kitchen knives. So the next time you're facing off Bobby Flay (in your head), you can reach for your sharpest tool quickly without having to rummage around in multiple drawers.

    Promising review: "I love this stuff. I haven’t had to iron or steam my clothes in years because of this product. Buying it from here is a bang for your buck. I bought a travel size a while back and kept the bottle and just refill it form this big bottle every time I travel. It goes a long way, so it lasts a while. And I love that it makes your clothes smell fresh even when it’s been sitting in your closet for months without wearing." —Eli

    20. Mighty Patch hydrocolloid pimple patches that work to absorb pus and shrink zits ~head on~. For those who are not out of the maskne woods (me), these are great to prevent picking and, according to one of our editors, are an effective treatment to avoid scarring and hyperpigmentation.

    amazon reviewer's clear pimple patch full of sebum
    amazon.com

    Melanie Aman, an editor on our shopping team, tried these out and says: "These are hands down the best pimple patches I’ve ever used. Why? Because they actually work. I’ve tried some more cutesy patches that were great for Instagram photos but did nothing to shrink my breakouts. And the pimple patches that touted themselves as basically invisible were — but so were any results. While the Hero Cosmetics pimple patches are a little more visible (but really only noticeable if someone was standing really close to my face), the results are clear to see. (And JSYK, they also make an invisible version, but I have not tried it.)

    IMO they work best on whiteheads, drawing out the pus and preventing me from picking. Once all the fluids are drained (yum!), I plop a patch on what was once home to a very angry whitehead and replace it twice a day (once in the morning and once at night). In my experience, that has been the best treatment for preventing really noticeable hyperpigmentation and acne scarring, which my skin is really prone to after breakouts."

    21. A pressure washer that will power clean every inch of your outdoor space and make it look brand-spanking-new. Layers of muck along your house and driveway have finally met their match with this device that is more satisfying to watch than a five-minute ASMR vid.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is truly the perfect power washer. First, it is very easy to put together, with clear step-by-step instructions. Second, it has a very small footprint, so it fits nicely anywhere in the garage without protruding out. Third, it is very powerful. We used it to power-wash all stone and concrete surfaces around our house and pool and then even the sidewalk in front of the house. Many of the stone/concrete surfaces that we cleaned had dark stains and/or green moss, which had developed for many years (some up to 20 years). This Sun Joe was able to clean everything. Fourth, it is very reliable. We have now used it for three weekends in a row. And each time, we used it continuously, nonstop for several hours at a time." —EdS

    Get it from Amazon for $159.99.

    22. A foot file to reverse crusty feet epidermis back to its OG baby-soft state. If you want to let your hooves see the light of day now that it's officially sandal season, this miracle worker will gift you with brand-new feet that you'll be proud to parade around.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "AMAZING!!! Seriously beyond impressed with this product. I've never had dry or cracked heels until recently, and I've tried everything I could find to get rid of them. This is all you need!!! I literally opened the box and did this in less than a minute! I'll never use anything else! Even better than professional pedicures!!!" —Kyla Jackson

    Get it from Amazon for $8.95.

    23. An adjustable blind duster 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.

    It comes with five washable microfiber sleeves.

    Promising review: "OK, I'll be honest: I ordered this because of the price. After reviewing several other options and having been disappointed with previous dusters I've had, I figured, Why spend more money on something that isn't going to work? So I ordered the least expensive option, but WOW does this little tool rock!!!! It's very easy to use and clean. It does a fantastic job of cleaning and dusting the blinds and gets ALL of the crud off of them. My blinds haven't been this clean since the day they were first installed. VERY happy with purchase." —Amazon Shopper

    These are biodegradable and odor-free.

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. A bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much that I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING." —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "Say goodbye to rearranging your fitted sheet every morning! My boyfriend sleeps like he’s rolling down a hill, so every morning I would wake up to the scratchy feel of my mattress cover because my soft silk fitted sheet was all over the place. Thanks to these bed bands, our sheets stay put no matter what. The only way for your fitted sheet to come off is if you manually remove these first. I wish I would have bought this so much sooner." —Khalysee

    27. A set of gold collagen masks if carrying less [under-eye] baggage into the summer has been on your list of to-do's. These little miracle workers are fab if you're experiencing some puffiness thanks to Ms. Pollen — pat 'em on for some cooling and hydrating relief (it's just a bonus that they brighten too!).

    Jasmin Sandal/BuzzFeed, amazon.com

    I decided to put these golden gems to the test after coming off of a red-eye flight with practically no sleep. After cooling them off in the fridge (which is what was suggested on the packet), I applied them to my purple-y, puffy eyes, and...w-o-w. Not only did I feel like I was receiving some kind of royal treatment (because, gold), but after 20 minutes, my under-eye area appeared brighter, and any fine lines that were once lingering had vanished! After wearing these, I didn't feel compelled to apply concealer either, which is usually my go-to to disguise dark circles — and I even felt confident enough to go bare-faced for the rest of the day. Now I find that I integrate these into my routine anytime I want to de-puff and refresh.

    Promising review: "I was searching for some really good treatments for my under-eye puffiness, and I liked the reviews and ingredient lists for this product. I have used one set a week for three weeks and have noticed a lot less puffy/dark areas under my eyes. I use them at room temperature and chilled and find that I enjoy them chilled a lot better. They were also very budget friendly; I've seen other brands charging a lot more without have as many good reviews. I'm looking forward to more improvements as I use the rest of the product." —Kai Charles

    Promising review: "This product does exactly what it's supposed to and does it well. In under 15 minutes, I took my nightmare lid drawer and turned it into a functional, convenient storage space. The dividers were simple to install and provided flexibility. Slowly but surely I am getting my tiny, chaotic kitchen under control, and this got me a huge leap closer." —S. Hawthorn

We live in an old farmhouse, and even though we have the fastest and highest internet service, we just couldn't get the signal throughout the entire house, or even our upstairs.

    32. Drawer organizers if you've ever gone on a treasure hunt for that one nude thong so you can wear your white jeans. Now it's finally a thing of the past, thanks to dividers that take care of your mess of bras, socks, and underwear alike.

    A reviewer's before/after of a messy drawer, with the same drawer neatly organized in these bins
    Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Each set comes with four bins: a 6-cell bin (for scarves, hankies, and ties), an 8-cell bin (for undies), a 7-cell bin (for bras), and a 24-cell bin (for socks). They're also collapsable and fold flat if you need to store them away!

    Promising review: "No matter how neatly I fold my bras and underwear, they always seem to become a big jumble in the drawer. These organizers are perfect for keeping everything in place, and you won't forget about those items you own that end up buried at the back." —M. Hanson

    Get the set of four from Amazon for $14.97 (available in seven colors).

    33. A reusable Revlon oil-absorbing roller stick made with volcanic stone to tackle 4 p.m. T-zone shine. Simply put, you can give your skin a quick roll with this once your face becomes more reflective than the screen you've been staring at all day. A bonus? No white cast leftover from setting powder and no extra makeup tools needed.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This rolling device is like pure magic. Or voodoo?! You simply roll it around your oily areas, and BOOM — the oil magically vanishes into the ball never to be seen again! This is an item that #tiktokmademebuyit for sure! I saw a video on TikTok and immediately went on the hunt only to be disappointed that this item was sold out everywhere! I eventually got added to a waiting list here on Amazon, and once they had it in stock again, they charged my card and sent it my way! If you have the chance to purchase this and you have oily skin, get yourself on the waiting list if you need to, and just kick it until it shows up. You will be pleased. Thank me later." —Veronica Cooper

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98.

    34. A mini bag sealer that heat-seals your pack of morning cereal and afternoon pita chips for maximum freshness (and keeps any bugs out from finishing up your snacks before you do!). This handy thing also has a cutter to reopen said seals and a magnet that'll look great on your fridge, so you never misplace it.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This lil' bag sealer is INCREDIBLE. Packaged nicely, super cute, pretty easy to put together, and works like a dream. Seals the bag quickly, neatly, and effectively. Opens the same way after it’s sealed! Super easy to use, has a magnet on the back for sticking it to a refrigerator, and is a lifesaver for my cabinet full of half-closed, mostly stale, rolled up bags. Truly incredible." —barncat96

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (and save an additional percent off if you clip the coupon!).

    35. Silicone earplugs that work to relieve discomfort felt on airplanes, whether that's a change in air pressure or the sound of a screaming baby that just happens to be sitting in the seat directly behind you...

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this product! Every couple of trips, no matter what tricks I try, I cannot clear my ears. The ear pain is immense at takeoff (I completely understand why those babies and toddlers wail!), and then I'm hard of hearing for days. With these, that has never happened. A few other people near me had ear pain and I did not, so I was very grateful I'd bought this product." —Amy Clark

    Get a pack of one from Amazon for $6.99.

    36. A clever morning and night dog feeding system you'll be so happy you bought, especially if you can never seem to remember if you gave Sparky his breakfast.

    amazon.com

    The gadget comes with adhesives on the back so they can be mounted just about anywhere to keep track of feedings from a.m. to p.m. Sunday through Saturday. The sliders "click" into place when moved, so you don't have to worry about bumping into them and messing up the system.

    Promising review: "Awesome product! There are four of us that were working together to feed the dogs. It simplified everything because I no longer have to text to see if anyone had fed them every morning. Now I just see if it's green and if not I feed them and indicate it, we all love it so much!" —Toni Deegan

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95 (also available as a set of two and three, and in a cat version).

    37. Snug and supportive bike shorts (with pockets!) designed with a high waist that won't fall down during workouts. Plus, they'll make the perfect underlayer to defeat thigh-chafing when you're out and about.

    Promising review: "I ordered these to wear during at-home workouts instead of wearing my capri ones and under my shorts for walks because I hate my thighs rubbing together. I think I am going to get them in white to wear under my summer dresses. I love the way the waist is made and how soft the material is." —Kimberly Mcleod

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in sizes XXS–XXL and 35 colors).

    38. 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

    Get it from Amazon for $43.49 (available in two sizes and five colors).

    39. Vacuum seal bags for a serious space-saving solution when you're traveling. Now you can get away with packing a couple extra things...just in case you end up going to a fancy dinner, or if there's a drop in temperature, or you end up needing a spare swimsuit... It's always good to have options, right?

    Jasmin Sandal / BuzzFeed

    I swear by these bad boys not only for general storage purposes, but also if I know I'm going to be traveling for an extended period of time. As someone who tends to pack for every eventuality (who doesn't like to be prepared?!), I have learned that it's better to travel with them than without — especially since it's more or less a guarantee that my clothes are going to take up a ~substantial~ amount of room in my suitcase. And if I can use something that'll shrink the size of my bulky hoodies and/or big tees in order for me to create more space, I'm sure as heck going to do it. Plus, the satisfaction is indeed guaranteed because when you see those chunky layers flatten into a pancake...it's just *chef's kiss*.

    Promising review: "I've used these bags before, and they are so helpful. Even use the medium one for travel, and I have tons of extra suitcase room. The clothes don't come out wrinkled at all; as long as you fold them nicely before placing in the bag, then the air sucks out, keeping them safe and sound and very compact. Arrived on time; would use this seller again." —Susie Kochsmeier

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in multiple sizes or a variety pack).

    40. A hanger stacker to give you store-worthy organization in an instant. Because the first step to tidying up your closet is arming yourself with the right tools...the right tools NOT being a tangled up mess of coat hangers.

    amazon.com

    This simple structure arranges them in a system so you can easily grab one and hang without the headache.

    Promising review: "Working in retail for a million years, I know how amazing these can be in keeping your life less chaotic! I put off ordering for months, and I'm mad at myself that I did, because these beat a box of hangers hands down! I ordered two, one for dress/shirt hangers and one for skirt/pant hangers. They arrived today, seem to be made of the same metal that I've used in retail stores, appear to be sturdy, and are super easy to assemble! The only thing I had to stop and think about is which side of the base should face up. It comes with all the hardware and tools for assembly. A great buy!" —KatieLee333

    Get it from Amazon for $18.61.

    41. 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.

    The 16 roll storage hanger
    TheRollKeeper/Etsy

    The Roll Keeper is a small, woman-owned business based in Washington. They create unique, handcrafted storage solutions.

    Promising review: "These Roll Keepers made it so much easier to store my T-shirts, jeans, towels, etc., leaving ample room in my closet or drawers for additional items. I only need one hanger to hang 12 to 16 items! I definitely recommend this item for those who have limited space and wish to be more organized while looking less cluttered. I will be purchasing more." —Shanette Labonte

    Get it from TheRollKeeper on Etsy for $16.99 (holds 16 rolls).

    42. A convenient slide-out pantry that's perfect for two jobs: ridding your countertops of clutter and utilizing the dead, blackhole space found between your fridge and kitchen wall.

    amazon.com

    This cupboard on wheels has five shelves, so you'll have ample storage space, and you can pull it out and push it back in with ease.

    Promising review: "Very pleased with the quality of this. I was afraid it would be flimsy, but it feels nice and sturdy even when completely loaded with canned and boxed food. Wheels roll great. Perfect size between fridge and wall. My family has been using this daily for six months with no issues. Very happy with this purchase." —Wally

    Get it from Amazon for $42.99.

    43. An electrical cord box that has a faux wood top and white base that's attractive enough to seamlessly camouflage itself within your living room, *and* it hides 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 cellphone 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 $19.99.

    44. 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.

    amazon.com

    It has a hole and comes with hardware to allow you to screw it into one place to keep it secure if you want!

    Promising review: "This organizer works beautifully! No more cluttered cabinets! When I need a skillet, I pull one out in a matter of seconds versus digging through hazardously piled pans that my family carelessly threw back in after they were clean. I did not have any issues with any of my pans fitting in the slot, and even my extra-large pan (used for sautéing large quantities of veggies) fit into the slot, but does stick out ever so slightly. The ONLY pan that does not fit into an actual slot is my deep pan skillet, the one I use for making stews. I was entirely expecting that and instead use the very top rack for it to sit on top of. So counting the top space, this rack fits UP to five skillets."—Pam

    45. And some waterproof screen repair tape that will take care of all those rips that have now become gaping holes in your screen door. In a matter of seconds, this simple DIY task will ensure your home is free from unwelcome guests buzzing around.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising Review: "Works great. Moved into a place where the previous owner must have had a cat, because the screens were full of holes. This patched them up nicely." —Bee27

    Get it from Amazon $8.99.
