    1. This memory foam bath mat to prevent and slips when exiting the shower, and to cushion your feet with a velvety softness. You might honestly swear that you're stepping on a cloud!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: “I just moved into a new place and needed bath mats. I first ordered the large one for when my husband and I get out of the shower. This is well-made, feels soft, and dries quickly. Plus, we don't slip getting out of the shower with wet feet. I liked this so much that I ordered one for under the sink in the bathroom. I highly recommend.” —Gary Thompson and Cheryl

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in four sizes and 13 colors).

    2. A cheeky box that nicely holds any toilet necessities and acts as lighthearted decor. The only butt of the joke here is how bare your bathroom looked without it.

    Amazon

    Promising review: “Love it!!! It’s actually wood, unlike many items I’ve purchased through that have been listed as wood but come and are actually particle board with a wood-like veneer overlay. This is real wood with a solid construction that’s exactly as advertised. I’m very happy with this purchase and can’t wait to get my bathroom finished so I can add it to the decor!!” —ShopReviewRepeat

    Get it from Amazon for $34.95.

    3. A bottle of Poo-Pourri toilet spray so family members and guests can leave the bathroom smelling better than when they walked in. Because honestly, unless you poop roses, you probably wouldn't mind having someone walk in after you and not pinch their nose in disgust.

    amazon.com

    Spritz it into the pot before you sit down for the best results!

    Promising review: “One bathroom in an apartment just isn't enough for two adults with a healthy colon. Enter Poo-Pourri. As this was my first time trying the product, I tried the original scent. It has an amazing lemon smell. It is very fresh and not overpowering. It is not synthetic smelling. With most room sprays, you end up just smelling flowery poo, but this masks the smell completely. I can walk into the bathroom 30 seconds after my boyfriend and only smell lemon. I cannot wait to try other scents. This 4 oz. bottle will definitely last a long time, and I highly recommend this product.” — Allison H.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.20 (available in six sizes and seven scents).

    4. The incomparable TubShroom that fits in the opening of your drain like a cute 'lil button and catches hair fallout before it causes a major argument — er, I mean, problem.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: “We are a household of three women — two with short hair and one with long hair — and a medium-haired dog that we bathe in the shower. I tried three other drain catchers and none could hold up and frankly were just nasty to clean. I removed the metal catcher with a screwdriver and placed the Shroom in its place. The first shower was a grand success. Not only was the water able to properly drain (goodbye standing in a pool of your own dirty bathwater!!!!), but the hair dropped into the catcher without it collecting on the top, so it was not visible to one taking a shower. All the hair that had gone down was indeed caught and very, very simple to remove from the spool. I grabbed a tissue and just peeled the hair off and threw it in the trash. Voila! I don't know why I had ever hesitated. I like it so much that I am including it in all my housewarming gifts. It is the item you never knew you needed nor wanted.” —Montserrat Covis

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in six colors).

    5. A Squatty Potty because it'll help improve your posture while you *ahem* do your business. Sit on your toilet, put your feet on the Squatty Potty, and relax as you let it all just flow through you.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: “Let me just warn the serious poopers out there...don't think you're gonna put your feet on this thing and suddenly remember you left the stove on and have to go check it. OH NO! You better buckle up buttercup because once your body is in TRUE pooping mode, it's GAME OVER for you! You can't stop it and you can't even pray it away. You just have to let it flow through you, hold your ripped blouse back, and wash your hands as the totally cleaned out human shell you are. I think I lost a piece of my soul the first time I used it. To say I felt like a new woman is an understatement. This ingenious design cleans you out so well that I'm sure I lost the rest of my umbilical cord at some point! I used to bring a book or my phone with me to settle in for a matinee, but NOW? There's barely enough time to take a non poop scented–breath before the baby arrives. It's like the scene in Christmas Vacation where Chevy Chase goes sledding — before you know it, you're in the parking lot of a Walmart wondering what just happened!” —Amanda Clark

    Get it from Amazon for $23.49.

    6. This chrome toilet paper shelf that FINALLY gives you a place to put your damn phone when you use the bathroom. We've all tried balancing our phones on the edge of the sink or in between our knees, or maybe even resorted to putting our phones on floor — just sayin'.

    Amazon

    Promising review: “I would buy this again and again. This thing looks great, matches my chrome fixtures, fits jumbo rolls, and is a total conversation piece (who'd have thought?). It's very convenient because let's face it, we all bring our phone into the bathroom and find awkward places to put it. It is pretty difficult to clean and gets dirty easily, but I do think that comes with the territory of chrome products. Otherwise, it's perfect!” —Elisabeth

    Get it from Amazon for $24.70 (available in four finishes).

    7. A super powerful rust remover so you can tackle those tough-to-clean stains plaguing your shower walls and sinks. According to the directions, you don't even need to scrub the surface once you've sprayed this bad boy on. Just let it sit for a few seconds, wipe it off, and be prepared to let your jaw hit the floor.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: “We have a VERY high iron concentration in our well water at home and it ends up slowly turning our shower, sink, and toilet a deep orange color over time. I have tried a ton of products to try to fix this issue, but nothing works nearly as well as this product. It smells absolutely terrible, but works AMAZING. A few spritzes of this and you can watch the orange dissolve away before your eyes.” —Samantha

    Get it from Amazon for $4.97+ (available in packs of one, two, three, and six).

    8. Metal towel holders that'll give you a steady, easy to reach–supply of bath towels. Because nothing's worse than hopping in the shower, getting all lathered up, and realizing that you forgot your towel.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: “I absolutely love these! We have extra-large towels and these racks hold them perfectly when they’re rolled up! It's such a great modern style and gives the bathroom a great look. The racks are sturdy and come with wall anchors as well. I will be buying another set of these for our other bathroom, and perhaps another for the dining room for some wine bottles! I don't even have to think twice before buying these!” —Erin Cech

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in two finishes and as a pack of two).

    9. This space-saving shelf because it fits conveniently above your toilet so you can organize your bathroom essentials without taking up too much room.

    Walmart

    Promising review: “I ordered this to go over my toilet in a very small bathroom and haven't been disappointed. What I especially like is that the sides are real wood instead of composite/particle board as they are in many similarly-economical products. It's sturdy enough even though I opted not to bolt it to the wall as directed. The directions were fairly easy to read and pre-drilled holes made assembly physically easy — one issue, the diagrams did not correctly distinguish reverse sides and two head-boards I had to redo in order to place the screws facing backward and out of sight. Make sure the bottom shelf is high enough for your toilet — my standard sized toilet clears with an inch to spare.” —shopper19753

    Get it from Walmart for $87.99 (available in white and espresso).

    10. A mildew gel cleaner that'll help zap the scum growing around your tub and sink so you can shower and bathe without gross mildew staring you in the face.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Wow! I would give this 10 stars if I could. We've had issues for a few years with the caulking behind the handle of our kitchen faucet turning black from mildew. We've scrubbed with what seems like a million different products with no luck. We were actually just talking about ripping out the caulking and doing a total replacement. But, my husband saw this online the other day and decided to order it. Almost immediately when he applied it, you could see it was starting to work. We left it on overnight and the black is COMPLETELY GONE! It's incredible. 1000% worth the (small) investment." —Nicole D.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    11. A cats butt–tissue holder so you and your guests can get a good chuckle while you reach for a snot rag.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $35.61 (also available as a black and white cat).

    12. A Homesick candle that smells like Texas (or your favorite city *cough* New York *cough*) because there's no place like a home(y) bathroom.

    Amazon

    Promising review: “I got this as a surprise for my boyfriend. He moved to my state from Texas for college. I wasn't sure about how it would smell but I figured even if he wasn't a fan it would be neat as a decoration for his room. When I surprised him with the candle and he smelled it, he actually got very emotional and started crying because he said the smell instantly brought back so many memories of home. I don't know how they did it, but Homesick Candles managed to replicate the smell of home so well in this candle that it took my boyfriend back home immediately. Definitely worth my money.” —Bailey K

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95 (available in 51 scents).

    13. A tub cleaner that's perfect for jacuzzis and baths with hard-to-clean jets. A little grime in between the jets is "no big deal" until you plan on having guests stay over...

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Oh my gosh! You think your tub is clean and then you see what comes out with this! I followed the directions (fill the tub over jets with water, pour in the cleaner, and turn the jets on). Almost immediately, this disgusting residue shot out. And then, most came out as the chemical had time to circulate. I'm so glad I got this cleaner instead of sitting in filth, especially because we just bought a new house and I thought, 'maybe I should try to find out if there is a special cleaner for these tubs.' I'm glad I did and can know my tub is cleaned out." —Aaron Johnson

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    14. A tubside drink holder so you can sip on a glass of wine or can of beer while you take a relaxing soak. Who said bathtime was only for the kids?

    Amazon

    Promising review: “I overheard my boss talking about shower beers and we had a nice conversation about it. I tend to just hold my shower beer and set it down on my corner seat if I have to. I guess not everyone has somewhere to set their beers. He talked about inventing a beer caddy. I came across this and thought it was a great gift. He took it home and tested it right away. We were a little skeptical and thought that the suction wouldn't stay. He put a beer bottle in and left it there for a few hours. It was still there. He wasn't 100% sure so he drank the beer and left it on. The next day it was still stuck to his shower wall. He now uses it without any doubts. I like that it opens and gives options for different types of glassware. It works with wine glasses, beer bottles, and solo cups.” —Jinkc

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95 (available in six colors).

    15. This clear shower curtain with pockets that'll help you avoid cluttering the ledge in your shower with half-empty bottles and razors — instead, you can store them in these pockets and always have them within reach.

    Amazon

    Promising review: “This is by far one of the best inventions EVER! I started getting these in college instead of using shower caddies and it was a GREAT IDEA. It’s way less bulky and you don’t end up with soap scum around the ledges where normal caddies would get set. Much like other shower curtains, you can just wash these in the washer and they are like new! We have only ever had one pocket rip and that was completely our fault — I slipped in the shower and as I reached out to grasp for my life, what was there? A strong sturdy shower curtain pocket! There ended up being a small tear in the corner, but overall, it was still intact — even the rings at the top! This crazy durable curtain can be useful if you have kids — you can put their toys in the pockets! And for dogs? Put a treat or tennis ball in the pocket to keep them occupied while bathing them. Need some personal time? The large pockets also easily fit a bottle of wine and can be reached while soaking in the tub. I mean the uses for this thing are endless!” —Ms. Mary

    Get it from Amazon for $14.

    16. Bath bombs because they smell so pretty and look so luxurious that you'll have no choice but to look forward to your weekly dose of "me time" so you can pop one in the tub.

    Amazon

    Promising review: “I purchased these bath bombs because I was looking for an alternative to LUSH. I'm a school teacher, I need relaxation without the price tag of around $7 a bomb! I was very excited to see that these bombs are handmade in the United States. They also are made of ingredients that are familiar to me. I could smell them through the box! Very strong, yet awesome, scents. They have a small sticker with the names of each bomb on the individual wrappers. I tried "Fun on the Beach" first. My entire bathroom smelled amazing! My water was a hot pink/purple color. The bomb took about two minutes to dissolve entirely. I am so excited to try them all!” —Kelsey McKinzie

    17. A bag of Dr. Teal's Epsom salt that'll have you running to your bathtub for some much-needed muscle pain relief.

    Amazon

    Promising review: “After not working out for over a year, I decided to kick-start my exercise routine and joined a six-week CrossFit challenge. While this was a great experience overall, it came with the nasty side effect of massive soreness. One of the coaches recommended Epsom salt as a way to ease soreness and muscle tension. Using this Epsom salt in a bath after working out made a significant difference for me. It helped ease the soreness so I could continue living my life as normal instead of struggling to walk up the stairs because of the pain. The added benefit here is the super relaxing lavender scent! Not sure if it was just the scent or the exhaustion from my workout routine, but it definitely helped me fall asleep. I also like the Velcro closure because it makes it easy to reseal between uses. Is this significantly better Epsom salt than the bargain store brand? Not sure, but I feel better about the quality of ingredients because of the reputation of the Dr. Teal brand. When you're naked in a bath, that kind of thing matters in my opinion. Does it smell way better than the bargain store brand? Absolutely. Will I buy it again? Absolutely.” —TamTam

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95 (available in four varieties).

    18. This grout pen (read: magic wand) because it'll take your bathroom floor from horribly discolored to clean and pristine. The results might actually have you saying, "Bibidi bobbidi boo-yah!"

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing! After over 10 years of the grout not being cleaned and a botched repair job, the bathroom floor in this house looked horrendous. Two pens covered the entire bathroom floor with plenty of product left over in the second pen — even after applying two to three layers (which you will definitely need as the paint is a bit thin and also absorbs into the grout). It's super easy to apply and works exactly like a regular paint marker. Be sure to press the pen tip on a separate (thick) cloth to activate it before actually using on the grout so you don't end up with a huge mess on the tile when the paint floods out at first. If you see the first side of the tip is getting frayed, just pull it out and turn it around to the other side." —regalle

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in three colors).

    19. A beach-themed toothbrush holder that'll remind you that you can hit the boardwalk for some fun in the sun after you finish brushing those pearly whites.

    Walmart

    Promising review: “I love the beach! I've loved the beach every since I was a little girl. The waves, the birds, the sun on my skin. My aunt inspired my love for the beach and now she's passed. The beach is serenity, peace and a place I feel like I can go and talk to her. I love this toothbrush holder. It goes really well with all of my other beach themed decor. It is sturdy, it can hold several regular toothbrushes on each side if need be or perhaps an electric toothbrush. The beach signs are perfect, "Beach" "Fun in the Sun" and "Seashore". I can almost hear the sound of the ocean in my bathroom now!” —Brandie28

    Get it from Walmart for $7.96.

    20. This toilet bowl pumice cleaner because nothing will make you want a cleaner toilet more than hearing mom is coming to visit for the weekend.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Oh my WOW! Quickly I will say that I — weak, little me — was able to scrub the impossible to remove ring out of my toilet in under two minutes! In the last seven years, everywhere we have lived has had hard water lines. The last place we lived had those rings really bad when we moved in. It took my husband over an hour to scrub it all off with a wire scrubber! The place we live at now had the toilets pristine when we moved in, but after being away for over a week, they became disgusting! I was dreading having to clean them for when we host Christmas this year. But now I'm actually excited! And I don't get excited about cleaning!" —Caity

    Get it from Amazon for $8.18+ (available in packs of two and six).

    21. This no-slip bath mat that easily suctions to the floor of your bathtub to prevent and slips and falls. You won't have to worry about your loved ones having any accidents while they're in the shower.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: “I was unsure about how well this would work having used different versions in the past, but I was pleasantly surprised by this one. My porcelain tub turns into a hazard when wet so this has been great. It grips well and the suction cups keep it securely in place. It’s easy to wipe down and doesn't get a mildew smell like some shower mats. There is a plastic smell when you first open the packaging, but once aired out for a few hours that goes away.” —HT

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in 19 colors).

    22. And this adorable whale-shaped bath spout cover to help make bathtime more adorable for your little ones, but also to protect them from hurting themselves should they accidentally collide with the faucet.

    Amazon

    Promising review: “As a dad, I thought this was a really silly buy made by my wife. It’s silly looking, seems unnecessary, and appears to be just another waste of money in the great emptying of your wallet through silly baby purchases. But I installed it anyway and cringed as it looked up at my naked body while showing on its first day in our home. That evening, I gave my nine-month-old son a bath. He was splashing and experimenting with crawling and standing when he slipped and bumped his head on the bath spout. It’s the kind of crack on the head that makes even a dad’s stomach turn. If the Moby was not installed, he would have REALLY hurt himself. He is a tough guy and just splashed away with no tears and little fuss. As a Dad and as a penny-pinching Scrooge, I can testify that although the Moby may seem like superfluous spending, it is NOT. Definitely get one....just remove it when you shower......” —Capstone

    Get it from Amazon for $9.59 (available in blue and gray).
