    46 Products That Will Fix Very Specific Household Problems

    Never again will you be woken up by a blinking LED light in your bedroom ๐Ÿ™Œ.

    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 โ€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. An all-in-one spackle kit that even a not-so-handy person can use to fix holes that have resulted from decorating โ€” and redecorating. Think: a renter's dream kit to fill, smooth, and repair dents from a wall hanging that once looked great above the couch but now looks like it belongs in the year 2017. TY, we'll take that full security deposit back now!

    This kit contains spackle, primer, a putty knife, and a sanding pad! And reviewers mention that if you add a lick of paint after using this, your walls will look as good as new.

    Promising review: "I slipped in the shower the other day and grabbed my towel bar outside of it so as not to die. Doing so, I ripped the bar off the wall, including the screws and anchors, so I had four small but kind of nasty holes in my wall. I've never done any sort of drywall repair/spackling, etc., and I figured, for under $10 with all I could need, this would do the job. I applied the spackle, smoothed it with the flat end of the tube, and allowed it to dry. I was able to sand it smooth and then paint over the spackle. It looks fine now. I give it 5 stars for convenience." โ€”John J. Connelly Jr.

    2. A toothpaste holder paired with a squeezer if you're a firm believer that the only way to squeeze is from ๐Ÿ‘ the ๐Ÿ‘ bottom ๐Ÿ‘. This nifty little thing gets every little last dab of paste out to save you the effort โ€” plus it just looks a lot better atop your sink in lieu of that crumbled-up tube.

    Promising review: "This device is ingenious! Wished Iโ€™d known sooner that this product exists. I use Arm & Hammer toothpaste which still comes in the standard small cap so having it prompt up behind the bathroom cabinet was impossible. Now, problem solved. Itโ€™s a small invention that made a positive impact. I thank the person who thought of it." โ€”Jl33NYC

    3. An unbelievably adorable display stand so your glasses have a designated place for when they're not resting upon your nose. I will now bid the days of you misplacing your spectacles adieu.


    Promising review: "I usually store my glasses in their case. I don't know why that's such a hassle, but I like to be able to just reach for them. But they are also unsafe when they are just sitting on my desk. This little koala solves my problem! He holds my glasses securely and does it in the cutest way possible. Now I can sit at my desk, grab my glasses, and get to work with a smile on my face. And at the end of the day, I just leave them with my Koala for safe keeping. Seriously, just get one. I haven't lost my glasses once since I got this." โ€”Bianca

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in 12 animals).

    4. A Rub-A-Way odor remover โ€” the ingenious soap-shaped bar that's made of stainless steel to eradicate any lingering smell that comes from chopping up garlic and onions. Rub your hands with this with or without water so you can get on with your to-dos sans funky fingers.

    And these are dishwasher-safe.

    Promising Review: "Hate the smell of garlic and onions on your hands even after multiple washings? This bar takes them away in seconds. I like that is shaped like a bar of soap (very cute in my soap tray). It's simple to use and comfortable in your hands. A couple of $$ cheaper would be nice but it works so I guess it was worth it. Whenever guests see it, they have to try I it. They always ask me how it works. I tell them it's magic." โ€”Kat K

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+.

    5. And speaking of dirty paws, how about a pet paw cleaner? For times when your doggo decides to take a stroll in mud-filled puddles and proudly brings back the evidence into your home. Get ready to breathe your last sigh, because in little to no time each paw can get a gentle scrub down with silicone bristles and a little water.

    Promising review: "Best. Thing. Ever. This product works like a charm. It gets the sand from between their pads, and is gentle enough that even my most stubborn pup tolerates it! I have a terrier/schnauzer that likes to dig, a mini golden doodle that is prissy about her paws, and a standard labradoodle puppy that is still very fuzzy. We have a farm where it is extremely sandy and we stay in a travel trailer. The amount of sand they were tracking in to the camper was driving me CRAZY. It takes me three minutes to clean and dry off all of their paws. Seriously the best purchase I have made!" โ€”Rachel

    Get it from Amazon for $8.49+ (available in three sizes and colors).

    6. A stainless-steel whisk wiper so you'll actually look forward to using (and cleaning) the one baking tool I personally find the hardest to wash. Just plop this on before you get whisking and watch this gadget effortlessly remove cake batter โ€” it's quite possibly more satisfying than creating the cake itself...


    Promising review: "Handy and super sturdy. I was worried these would be flimsy and not last to use and washes. I was super blown away at how well these are made and will hold up. They have a robust clear hard polymer type material behind the rubberized wiper that keeps the wiper sturdy and easy to handle even one-handed." โ€”Joshua Anders

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95.

    7. Heat-safe silicone utensils that won't scratch up your pots and pans as you make that rue for your ~fancy~ homemade mac. And thanks to their soft material, they minimize cooking noise which means you won't wake up your roommate the next time you bang the side of the pot to remove excess food.,

    Each set includes a large and medium spatula, a large and medium spoon, a medium spreader, a medium pastry brush, an egg whisk, and an egg separator.

    Promising review: "Great quality!! Iโ€™ve been using them for a few months now and they are great! They clean up well with no spots and feel pretty sturdy while using for thick heavy foods. I also use some for sautรฉing and have had no heat issues or melting. I would definitely buy these again, but at this rate I wonโ€™t need to!" โ€”Mizz87

    8. A stackable 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 with ease.

    Reviewer photo of cutlery neatly organized

    One tray fits up to 24 pieces of cutlery.

    Promising review: "THE BEST silverware storage organizer compartments Iโ€™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 thereโ€™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 donโ€™t have to stack perfectly to put a lot in!!! ADD IT TO YOUR CART NOW, youโ€™ll be glad you did if you have the same problem as we did!" โ€”oceantiff

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    9. A shower curtain liner complete with pockets for anyone who keeps at least four hair products in their shower at all times (without the tub space to store them). With this, you can keep floors clutter-free โ€” and once you're all sudsy, you can simply turn to grab your products without needing to bend down with one eye open and pat around for its whereabouts.

    Elizabeth Lily / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I love this shower curtain. It's very functional. I don't have enough storage space in my bathroom. This curtain is a lifesaver. I use all the pockets, and can keep heavy things in them too. Nothing has ever happened." โ€”svhare

    10. 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.

    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." โ€”Jarom A. Daszko

    Get them from Amazon for $5.99.

    11. A mold and mildew remover to banish gross-looking grout that lives between your bath tiles. You've witnessed those green-gray spots make themselves at home along your walls, but there's going to come a time when you'll no longer feel comfortable showering with them beside you โ€” and we think that time is now.


    Promising review: "You guys. The grout around our tub was DISGUSTING. It was never caulked right and it got gross very quickly. I would scrub, the cleaning lady would scrub. It would get worse. Well, I was scrolling through FB as you do and came across one of those BuzzFeed lists: 20 cleaning products under $20 from Amazon you cannot live without. I am a sucker for those damn lists. But this stuff made me curious. I donโ€™t know why it doesnโ€™t have 10,000 good reviews. Seriously. All I did was squeeze it on and walk away. I let it sit overnight. Check this out. Buy it, like today." โ€”KarynB

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    12. An automatic grout brush that cleans a lot faster than manual scrubbing would. It comes with a detachable oscillating brush head so you'll feel instantly gratified the moment you're reminded of the color that's separating your kitchen, bathroom, and backsplash tiles (spoiler, it's white!).

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed,

    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." โ€”Amazon Customer

    A reviewer's office chair with the arm pads

    Promising review: "I was having problems with my elbow being sore from sitting at my chair so much while working from home. I wear t-shirts a lot and my elbows were getting raw and annoyed from resting on the hard plastic arm rests all day. They fit my chair perfectly and from the minute I put them on, they gave me instant relief from the hard plastic arm rests on my chair. I highly recommend them to anyone with similar elbow issues." โ€”BoSoxBrent

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    14. A nonslip cooling pad because you're all too familiar with the overzealous hum that comes from your laptop right when you're in the middle of a big assignment. This will prevent it from overheating (even for you, yep, you with those gazillion tabs open) so you can place it on your lap without fear of it scorching your thighs mid meeting.

    Promising review: "This thing is a game-changer...literally. I use my laptop for gaming. I like to run games with high-quality graphics, and thus, my computer heats up. In the past, I would put my knees up to give my laptop some breathing room, which is very uncomfortable for long term use. This cooling pad allows my legs and computer to stay cool for long periods of computer usage. The sticky band on the bottom keeps my laptop in place even when I'm moving around. I highly recommend this to anyone who hates their laptop burning their legs." โ€”Scott

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99.

    15. 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.,

    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." โ€”LMA

    Get a sheet of 100 from Amazon for $6.98.

    16. Lint drying balls because, did I hear that correctly... these reduce the time it takes to dry laundry and replace the need for dryer sheets and softener? And to think, I had given up on my towels ever being fully dry โ€” but when these are thrown in with them, they draw all the moisture out. Wow. I know what I'm adding to my adulting wishlist.

    17. 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.

    Reviewer photo showing the inside of a fridge organized using the bins

    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." โ€”BookBroke

    Get a six-piece set from Amazon for $30.99.

    18. A two-in-one keyboard and screen cleaner because that bit of schmutz between the G and H has been there since *checks calendar* the beginning of 2020 โ€” and it's finally time to take care of it.,

    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 โ€” 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." โ€”Kiki.L.G

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    19. Microfiber glass-cleaning cloths that will dust down tricky light fixtures that are known for gathering gunk. These will make your home *glow* once again and they won't leave fibers behind โ€” because streaks have no place on your glassware anymore.

    Reviewer image showing two dirty ceiling lights and one clean one

    Promising review: "Iโ€™ve tried everything to clean my pendant lights. The grease from the kitchen just gets on them and using regular cleaning liquids just smears it. I was very doubtful in using these towels but decided to give it a shot. With water ONLY these lights were cleaned in the matter of minutes. I would def recommend these towels." โ€”The Muryns

    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." โ€”Shanette Labonte

    Get it from TheRoll Keeper on Etsy for $15.99 (holds 16 rolls).

    21. A two-stage sharpener to save your blunt, sad-looking kitchen knives โ€” that always fall flat at the most inopportune moments โ€” from the grave. This'll spruce 'em up and make chopping a less onerous task., Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This is worth every (small) penny and really is as good as the reviews say. We have noticed an immediate difference in chopping and prepping our veggies, cutting through meat, etc. It's such a small product with a small price tag, but it's made a big difference! It even fits right into the drawer below the knife block. Love it!" โ€”AlwaysAmyBrand

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

    22. A silicone spatula if you're anything like me and simply cannot rest until you get every last morsel of PB out of the jar. This handy tool gets in the nooks and crannies and ensures that not even a single dollop of mayo will go to waste.

    Promising review: "No more waste! I love this spatula. Narrow enough to get inside the jar to get every last bit of peanut butter, Nutella, jelly, mayo...You name it!

    Reviewer image of banana in bag and banana outside of bag with brown spots

    They have eight to 10 uses out of them โ€” just rinse with cool, clear water and let dry before restocking. Oh, and another tip: make sure you dry off the produce before storing in the bags to avoid any moisture buildup.

    Promising review: "The bags and food containers perform as promised. Love, love, love how much it has changed my buying habits and is saving me money and annoyance (at seeing food spoil quickly). I'm buying less food because my vegetables and fruits remain fresh for SO much longer. I wish I had known about these products before. They pay for themselves. Until you try the bags and containers (I recommend having both), you will not believe the longevity and freshness added to produce." โ€”QiLady

    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.

I would definitely recommend this product." โ€”Ireadfantasyformysanity

After turning it off, it will continue to blink red for several minutes warning you that it is still hot. But be assured that it will stop blinking and the unit is off. Would recommend to anyone needing to keep their coffee/tea warm." โ€”Amazon Customer

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." โ€”Amazon Customer

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

    Promising review: "This thing is absolutely perfect. I highly recommend for those of you working from home. I needed a white board but really didnโ€™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!"โ€”Shannon

    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 non-stick 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!" โ€”S. Blades

    Promising review: "This helps keep my hair styling tools off of the counter and tucked out of the way. I live in a small apartment so counter and cabinet space are at a premium, and this is perfect. It was super easy to assemble and has shown no signs of coming apart in the year that I have had it so far. Definitely get this if you need to save some space!" โ€”Lauren Roland Ford

    38. 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.

    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 2โ€ x 3โ€ area of the tabletop. I thought the table was ruined. I ordered this product because I was desperate. I didnโ€™t think it would help. I was wrong! The markers worked beautifully. Only I know the table was damaged." โ€”Norasusan

    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 itโ€™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!" โ€”Akash B.

    40. 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.)

    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." โ€”Kindle Customer

    41. 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.,

    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!" โ€”Megan

    43. 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.,

    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." โ€”Northwest Gal

    44. A pet-grooming glove brush that'll not only have your fluffiest pals looking like they just stepped out of the groomers, but also help with any shedding problems around your home.,

    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." โ€”Colleen5991

    45. 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: "These are a must-have! I couldnโ€™t believe how easy these were to apply. The material is very easy to cut with normal scissors and I was able to lay it on the door cut the exact length apply and noticed and immediate difference! We bought these for two doors leaking cold air into the house but itโ€™ll also doubles to keep little bugs out! The material is very bendable which is nice if you open the door and itโ€™s long it doesnโ€™t damage anything โ€” itโ€™s very rubbery." โ€”Lindsay (Thornburg) Perkins

    46. Heavy-duty cleaning wipes that will challenge intimidating messes โ€” 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.

    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: "I have light carpets, three teenage boys, two cats, and and a huge Labradoodle dog. I often find spills and drips that have dried on my carpets and this product has done a better job of removing the stains than any of the many stain removers I have tried. These wipes have even removed the stains caused by the occasional surprise the kitties leave on the carpet during the night. It is also the only product I found that removes dog drool stains from our leather car upholstery. Who knew dried dog drool would be so hard to get off leather upholstery?" โ€”Busy Mom
