    The 32 Products On This List Are All Things You'll Wish You'd Known About Sooner

    An anti-fogging face mask for glasses wearers, toilet-cleaning fizz bombs, and a car seat gap filler so your phone never slips through again.

    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 popular water-resistant Under Armour face mask that's designed to sit off your lips and give you extra room to breathe, whether you're working out or just going about your day. This comfortable, high-quality mask is made of a stretchy fabric that doesn't overheat, making it an especially great choice for active people — or anyone still looking for a face mask that's super breathable.

    Along with a *ton* of runners and athletes in its reviews, this mask also has the approval of BuzzFeed Shopping editor Emma Lord, who says she runs in Central Park multiple times a week and constantly sees other runners in this mask. "I have two of them in my own run rotation, and I'm impressed not only by how well they stay in place and don't get over-sweaty and gross on long runs, but by how well they wash up and maintain their shape. The straps are super soft on your ears, too. I've gotten so used to straps chafing on longer runs that I was surprised by what a difference this made. I also recently traveled cross-country by plane wearing mine, and a lot of other reviewers praised it for being comfy on long flights! It's just an overall easier mask to breathe in (while still maintaining a tight fit and keeping the people around you safe!)."

    Type Of Fit: Around-the-ear loops

    Pocket For Filter: No

    Fabric Type: Iso-Chill fabric

    Promising reviews: "Working in healthcare I am still masking all the time. These masks are super-soft material and well made. Design really does make a difference with glasses! Also provides a much more comfortable fit for small faces. Really wish I had found these at the beginning!!!" —Alex

    "Love these masks! I just ordered two more. I have glasses and finding a mask that didn't fog up my glasses seemed impossible until I found this kind. Super breathable fabric!" —Candace Cooper

    3. An Ember Mug2 for anyone who always pours a hot cup of coffee and then drinks about half of it before it goes cold (hello, it's me). This smartmug lets you set your preferred temperature and then keeps your drink consistently hot all day long using the included charging coaster (or 1.5 hours with the cup on its own!).

    @ember / Via, @ember / Via

    Promising review: "My only regret with this mug is that I didn’t buy it sooner. I don’t like to rush through my morning cup of coffee, so I had gotten used to it being cold before I finished it. Other reviewers talked of it scratching, so I use a plastic spoon to stir in it. The copper color looks beautiful sitting on the counter." —dserandall

    Get it from Amazon for $129.95 (available in four colors).

    4. A bottle of Drop It for wine drinkers who have experienced the dreaded post-wine headache or allergies afterward. Add a couple of drops to any glass of wine, and this solution will filter out the sulfites and tannins that cause people issues. Compared to a wine wand, you get way more use out of Drop It as well, with one bottle treating up to 55 glasses of wine!

    Reviewer image of glass of red wine with a bottle of Drop It, along with a caption explaining that it's been working

    Plus, this is a heck of a lot easier to use if you want to drink at a restaurant without pulling out a "wine wand" and calling attention to yourself. Drop It recommends one to two drops for each glass of white wine, two to three for a glass of red, and seven to nine if you're treating the whole bottle at once. Once it's in the glass, swirl lightly for 20 seconds, and you should be raring to go!

    Promising reviews: "Someone told me there was a way to relieve my stuffy head after drinking wine with sulfites and pointed me to a filter. A little more research led me to this product. Bought it, used it and was surprised. It worked! I just put two drops in a glass before pouring in the wine and enjoy. The stuffy sinuses did not appear after the wine as it usually did. Wish I would have found this sooner! —Think411

    "These drops work. Be sure to follow directions and use accordingly. The drops do not affect the taste of your wine. Wish I had brought these a long time ago. No headache, stuffiness in your sinuses, or swollen fingers." — S. DeMitry

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    5. A stunning two-in-one food bowl set to keep prepped meals hot for up to seven hours or cold for up to 12 hours. Its outer bowl is triple layered and vacuum insulated, while the inner bowl is leak resistant and microwave and dishwasher safe. Pack a soup, yogurt, oatmeal, or even ice cream, and it'll be perfectly ready to enjoy hours later!


    Promising review: "I bought this to hold my lunches at work. I teach and have working lunches with no opportunities to get to a refrigerator or microwave. I can fill my S'wells Eats (both sizes) with ice cream at 5:30 a.m. and they are still frozen at noon. Hot items don't seem to stay hot as well as the cold, but it just means more ice cream lunches. :)" —Mary E.

    Get it from S'well for $40+ (available in two sizes).

    6. A pack of bottle-cleaning tablets because your water bottle is probably disgusting and long overdue for a wash (it happens to all of us). Drop one of these tablets into your bottle with some warm water, watch it fizz up while it deep cleans, then empty and give your bottle a quick rinse. No more funky smells or weird residue!

    Promising review: "I don't know why I didn't get this sooner!! I was going to give up on cleaning our stainless steel cups and bottles until I found this. It works! I've tried everything and this is by far the easiest way to clean. All my cups look brand new!!!!" —teacherlover

    Get 12 tablets from Amazon for $8.

    7. A handy little garlic chopper to make your life so much easier if you cook with a ton of garlic. No more dirtying up a knife, cutting board, and your hands with sticky, smelly garlic — just pop your peeled cloves into this chopper's chamber and let it do all the work for you!

    reviewer holding chopper filled with chopped garlic

    Remember those cars that scooted around after you pulled them back to wind 'em up? This device is kind of like that. After you fill it with garlic, simply roll it around to chop up the garlic. It saves time and fingers. Plus, you can also use mince herbs, chilies, and other small ingredients in this as well!

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this little gadget! I had a couple of the regular-sized GarlicZooms for a while now and loved their usefulness, so I decided to get the XL. I will never look back! The smaller ones can only handle a few cloves of garlic at a time. I tried four cloves with the XL and it could've handled twice that easily. It chopped them up so fast with no problems. I know there's a lot of 'I can chop my own garlic' folks out there and that's fine. I love garlic, but loathe chopping it. I hate the way you can't get rid of the smell from your hands. So this little gadget works wonders!" —Lindiana Jones

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    8. A brilliant power scrubber brush that straight-up attaches to a drill to handle all the muscle power of cleaning for you. If you've got stains, hard-water marks, and mold and mildew buildup that you just haven't been able to get rid of, this could be the thing that finally does the trick.

    one of the brushes attached to a drill next to a shower pane with half still fogged up and the other super clear

    Promising review: "I admit that when I first saw this product I laughed. Then I found myself wondering if this was the answer to the grout in my bathroom that I cannot seem to get clean. As much as I would love to redo the bathroom, that just isn't going to happen right now. This seemingly silly product is actually quite amazing, and I wish I had found it sooner! While my grout and tiles are still far from perfect, I don't think I have seen it this clean looking as long as we have lived here. The best part is that this takes so little effort! Yes, holding a drill can be heavy and awkward. Yes, it is going to splatter the cleaning product around (duh) but it is still so worth it for those deep-cleaning projects." —Michelle B.

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $14.95 (available in six colors).

    9. A Chi automatic curling iron basically invented for anyone who doesn't feel confident curling their own hair. All you have to do is insert your hair into the chamber and it'll be automatically wrapped around the heated rod. A beep lets you know when the curl is ready to be released. It's as easy as that!

    And if you've burned yourself on a curling iron more times than you can count, you'll also be happy to know this nifty product has built-in heat protection thanks to the barrel that keeps your fingers from coming into contact with the hot rod. There are multiple preset temperatures for different types of hair as well.

    Promising reviews: "Thanks to arthritis, I can't lift my arm up all the way so I haven't been able to curl my hair in years. I absolutely love this! The curls come out perfectly and it super easy and super fast. And it doesn't get so hot that it burns you. It's lightweight and it keeps my curls. I have super-thick hair so that's not an easy feat! So very happy that I got this. I only wish I got it sooner!" —Clrm27

    "Love it!! I have fine-textured hair, very straight hair. I have trouble not only curling it but keeping it curled. For example, the other day I left rollers in my hair for 45 mins and got a minor wave that fell out in 10 minutes. This tool is easy and fast to use, adds shine, and the curl stays." —Alexandria

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99+ (available in six colors).

    Have curly or coily hair and want a heatless styling option? These foam hair rollers are safe and comfortable enough to wear overnight and can be molded into different shapes to achieve the exact style you're looking for. They're popular with reviewers ranging from 3a to 4c hair types.

    10. Or if frizz is the bane of your existence, an InStyler hot brush so you can straighten your hair so quickly and easily. The paddle covers way more surface area than the average flat iron so you only need a few passes to straighten and style your hair.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed Shopping editor Maitland Quitmeyer, whose hair is a mix of type 2 and 3 waves/curls, swears by this: "You guys, with just one pass over my hair, it was almost entirely straight. My jaw literally dropped. Two more passes and it was pin straight, not fried looking, and just a joy to run my fingers through. I did my whole head of hair in about 15 minutes. I really can't describe how shocked I was by the results. There are four temperature settings, too, from 300 degrees–450 degrees, so you can customize the heat for your hair type. (I tried it on both the hottest and second hottest settings, and both worked for my hair — just make sure you protect your hair from the heat!)"

    Get it from Instyler for $79.99.

    11. Or a one-step hair dryer and styler from Revlon designed specifically with curlier hair in mind, letting you dry, smooth, and style your hair with ease.

    A reviewer with 4c hair with one side straightened

    Promising review: "This blow dryer is a miracle worker. It took me 30 minutes to blow out my hair, which normally takes hours. It’s so easy to use, I wish I would have found it earlier. I would have transitioned to natural much sooner. I have 4c hair, and it definitely did the job. So happy I found this product — just make sure you use heat a good protecter." —Bella

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    12. For those who need a little help in the eyebrow department, Glossier's cult-favorite Boy Brow, a brushable creamy wax that grooms, thickens, and lifts for brows for a super-natural look. The hype is real for this one, y'all! It's easy to apply, blends perfectly, and goes a long way for how much you get.

    Anamaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    The formula comes in five different shades — black, brown, auburn, blonde, and clear — and you don't need to use much product to get natural-looking brows.  BuzzFeed editor AnaMaria Glavan swears by Glossier Boy Brow and says her "facial caterpillars have never looked better": 

    "This magic bottle is proof that not all heroes wear capes. I used the wand to brush baby hairs in the beginning/middle of my brow upward, 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 what 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."

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

    13. Eucalyptus toilet-cleaning bombs designed to leave your toilet sparkling and fresh. If you're someone who always puts off cleaning the toilet, definitely give these a shot! They can help tide you over between deep cleans and are also great to use if you have guests coming over. Because let's face it: Sometimes scent sprays just end up making the bathroom smell worse. 🤢

    Promising review: "The eucalyptus is strong and it fizzes nicely. I drop one in once or twice a week and scrub the toilet a bit, and the scent lingers after flushing. Perfect for keeping my bathroom fresh!" —kd Bromley

    Get it from Happy Earth Boutique for $12.

    Happy Earth Boutique is a woman-owned small biz making organic alternatives for your health and home.

    14. And for those of us whose drains are always, somehow, a little clogged, a FlexiSnake capable of grabbing that disgusting hair monster and pulling it out of your drain for good.,

    More than 4,000 hook-and-loop micro-hooks cover the full 18-inch span of the snake. It's reusable! Just remove hair after use and clean with soap, water, and a brush. It's compatible with most bathroom drains without needing to take off the stopper.

    Promising review: "I didn’t expect this to be professional grade or anything, but hey, for the price, this definitely did the job. Our bathroom sink was starting to drain really slowly, so I bought this. In less than two minutes, it had fed down the drain easily and pulled up two separate disgusting chunks of hair and soap scum. I wore cleaning gloves to clean that gunk off the snake, but it wasn’t too difficult. Drain worked perfectly after. I use it maybe once a month to maintain. Good value!" —KB

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    15. A jar of The Pink Stuff, an internet-beloved cleaning product made to tackle stains, dirt, and grime practically anywhere. Put it to the test on that pan, bathtub, or wall you've long given up on and watch this versatile paste work its magic.,

    A lot of people compare it to the Magic Eraser, but in paste form, so even your weirdest, most stubborn stains will meet their match.

    Promising reviews: "We have glass on our kitchen island, and around the sink, I have had this continuous hard water buildup. I have used hack after hack, and no other cleaner has removed the ugly white frosted buildup. After a little elbow grease, it came right off. So regret not finding this product sooner as the ugly white marks on my glass always caught my eye and it bothered me." —Tami

    "I wish I had taken a before/after picture of my once-beautiful ceramic skillet, but I honestly didn't think it would work. All of the 'burn stains' inside and outside of the pan that I have repeatedly tried to clean came off with hardly any elbow grease. This pan looks like it's brand new again. This paste — albeit pink — has a very fine grit to it and 'magic.' After washing the pan, I thought I'd try this on it and was very pleasantly surprised: it removed every single burn stain. I simply dipped my damp sponge into the paste and began on a small stain and voilà. I'm not sure what's in it, but there's really no odor to it whatsoever. I wish I had bought this sooner and I'm certain I'll immediately stock up on it — it's that good. If it was able to clean up this skillet to the point that it looks brand new, I can't imagine what it couldn't clean. I can assure you that a filthy oven is no match for this stuff." —Karen

    Get it from Amazon for $7.11.

    16. An electric candle lighter that'll just fuel your candle obsession even more. No more burned fingers, no more throwing away disposable lighters when they run out — you can charge up this little guy over and over (though a single charge will last you a while) and use its long, bendy neck to light wicks without you getting anywhere close.,

    The Ronxs candle lighter is the one I personally use, and after upgrading to it about a year ago, I'll never go back to those disposable Bic ones. It's so easy to use once you get the hang of it, and the charge lasts such a long time, even if you're lighting candles on the regular.

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my life? Burned myself twice last week using a traditional lighter and finally did some research and found this. So easy to use, rechargeable battery, and no more burns. The old long-neck lighters never lasted, and while the traditional lighters did last, I always had to use them with caution. Save time and money and prevent future burns, and get yourself and your friends one of these. Amazing." —Jay

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    17. An AeroGarden indoor herb growing system, complete with its own automated LED light and water level indicator — no soil needed! Try your hand at growing your own herbs or small vegetables — all you have to do is drop your seeds in, fill the bowl with water and some plant food, and plug it in!

    An AeroGarden Sprout garden growing three different herbs

    The AeroGarden Sprout comes with a free seed kit, and you have your choice between a set of three herbs (Genovese basil, curly parsley and dill), cherry tomatoes, salad greens, or cascading petunias. You can also pick up one of AeroGarden's Grow Anything kits if you want to use your own seeds in the future!

    Promising reviews: "We have been growing the herbs (parsley, basil, and dill) and all have been very successful. I have never seen so many herbs. We're very happy as my wife usually grows these outdoors in the spring and summer, and now we can do it indoors all year long." —Kevin Gilhooly

    "I had never considered trying hydroponics but always wanted a little garden of my own. Now it is exactly one month since I set up this little garden. I enjoyed watching the herbs grow, and I was really surprised at how fast they grew too. My sister told me that the dill is fresh and good, and after tasting a leaf of basil on my sandwich, I was very pleased at how aromatic and delicious it is." —Dana

    Get it from AeroGarden for $69.95 (originally $99.95). 

    18. If pimples have long been a major skincare struggle of yours, acne patches made with tea tree and calendula oil that will basically redefine the way you think of "beauty sleep." Apply one before bed or even wear it throughout the day thanks to how clear it is — it'll draw out all that pus and inflammation to leave your skin flat and clear afterward.,

    Promising review: "I have experienced cystic and hormonal acne for most of my adult life, and I honestly wish I knew of this product sooner. It’s extremely effective, and at the fraction of a cost I’ve spent on creams and other spot treatments in the past. They are not painful, and it’s oddly satisfying pulling the sticker off and seeing all the gunk left on the sticker (yeah, gross I know!). I still have redness after using these, but it is amazing how the bump is completely drained, nonpainful, and flattened after using these once overnight." —shae

    Be sure to check out BuzzFeed's deep dive on the Avarelle acne patches, including before and after photos that show just how well they work!

    Get a box of 40 round patches from Amazon for $8.49.

    19. High-waisted underwear that supports you in all the right places with a cute cheeky cut. It's made of ultrasoft and sustainable MicroModal fabric, and the waistband is feather soft — no painful digging around your waist. If you've been living with low-quality undies, do yourself a favor and make the upgrade to these!

    MeUndies also offers a monthly membership program where you can earn 30% off a pair of undies (or socks, bras, and apparel, if that's more your speed). It can be a great way to keep your underwear drawer fresh with cute new designs!

    Promising review: "My holy grail. These undies are perfect for me in every way. So soft, so comfy, my bikini area gets irritated from shaving with low-quality undies and these do not bother me at all. I can’t live without. The crotch isn’t too skinny for me and I love the high rise and super-cheeky fit. I will never stop buying these. Only complaint is I have had the seams come apart on two pairs (have bought probably 10 to12 total), but MeUndies sent me a replacement both times free of charge." —Lena

    Get them from MeUndies for $18 (available in sizes XS–4XL and 31 colors).

    20. Glossier's antioxidant-rich Balm Dotcom lip balm because Winter Is Coming and so is dry skin, and no one should have to deal with uncomfy chapped lips. Not all lip balms actually hydrate your lips (some are just goopy and weird), but Balm Dotcom is popular for a reason: It legit nourishes dry lips with natural moisturizes like castor oil and beeswax to leave your lips looking plump and smooth.


    You can stick with the original clear formula if you only want the moisturizing benefits or choose from a variety of tinted shades if you like a little color on your lips!

    Promising review: "Why did I not buy this sooner? I haven't bought the Cherry Balm Dotcom until now — and I'm obsessed! Not only is it just as soft and hydrating as the original, it actually gives my typically colorless lips a healthy-looking rosy, balmy flush! It's like blush for your lips. In my opinion, it is a completely underrated sheer lip tint (seriously, why do people not talk about this one more often?) that locks in moisture and makes your lips look actually juicy. Will definitely keep buying." —Luminocity

    Get it from Glossier for $12 (available in eight different balm flavors and tints).

    Check out our hands-on review of Balm Dotcom and other Glossier products for more!

    21. A portable monitor in case working off just your laptop isn't cutting it anymore. It's thin like a tablet and versatile — you can incorporate it into your work-from-home setup or use the included cover to slip it into your bag and take on the go.,

    This portable IPS monitor has a mini HDMI and USB-C port as well as speakers, just like other external monitors. At 1080p and 60Hz, it's suitable for casual gaming as well (many reviewers are using it with their Nintendo Switch).

    Promising review: "I wish I knew this portable monitor existed sooner! I have always dreaded having to travel with my laptop because I would be relegated to just a single screen for the duration of my trip. This monitor is really portable, connects directly to my USB-C port on my laptop, and worked right out of the box. It's true HD resolution and very clear and bright. I love it!" —DJChangez

    Get it from Amazon for $219.99.

    22. As seen on Shark Tank, a car seat gap filler you'll wish you had all those times your phone or keys slipped down into the crack between your seat and the console.

    A black car seat gap filler installed between a seat and the center console

    The Drop Stop securely attaches to the seat belt catch and prevents any small items from slipping down below. It's a universal fit, and you'll get two Drop Stops for each side. 

    Promising review: "I just don’t understand why I didn’t buy this sooner. It’s one of those things that you’re not really sure why you need it but once you have it, you can’t live without. It saved my poor arm from having to dig my keys, cellphone, pens, french fries, hair ties, you name it, from between the seat gap. Seriously, it’s awesome." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    23. A memory foam seat cushion for those who are constantly sitting for long hours and dealing with pain from it. The gel memory form supports your tushy while reducing pressure on your tailbone. Reviewers say it's helped immensely with lower back pain, both from injuries and just from sitting all day.

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this cushion. My butt, back, and legs feel so much better while using this than just sitting at my desk chair without it. I wish I had bought this sooner. It is so comfortable! Feels like you are sitting on a cloud! This helped reduce my pain tremendously." —Virginia P.

    Get it from Amazon for $35.95.

    24. A set of four beeswax food wraps, an all-natural, eco-friendly alternative to plastic wrap that actually keeps your food fresh for longer. Cover up a dish of leftovers, cheeses, fruit, bread, herbs, or anything else you want to keep fresh in your refrigerator with one of these gorgeous wraps. Plus, you'll be reducing your household's plastic use, so it's a win for the planet too.

    Goldilocks Goods

    These beeswax wraps are easy to wash as well — just wipe them down with a damp cloth or rinse in cool soapy water if they get dirty. They'll last for a year or more with proper care, and once you're done using them, they're completely compostable (you can also use them as a fire starter!).

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these. Not only are they beautiful, but having the different designs makes it easy to remember what's what once it’s all in the fridge. AND they catch peoples eye, so I have ample opportunities to spread the word. I use these as a plastic wrap/Ziploc bag/aluminum foil replacement. Easy to wash with cold water in the sink. Yay! So happy :)" —Megan M.

    Get the bundle from Goldilocks Goods for $89.

    Goldilocks is a small business that creates sustainable goods to help households reduce waste and plastic use. In addition to the beeswax wraps, they also offer produce bags that are *so* cute, candles, haircare, gift bundles, and more.

    25. A easily washable drip catcher, because I don't know about you, but water is *constantly* pooling up around my faucet and splashing onto the counter. This absorbent mat catches all the moisture and keeps the surface around your faucet dry and clean. No more gross standing water!

    Two Lilacs Studio/Etsy

    Promising review: "LOVE these splash catchers! They save me from having to chase the puddles that form around the base of our faucet before they start creeping over the counter. So reasonably priced, made well with neatly finished edges, and packaged with gift-ready care." —Alina

    Get it from Two Lilacs Studio on Etsy for $10.50+ (available in four sizes and 10 colors).

    Two Lilacs Studio is a small Etsy shop based in Saint Helens, Oregon.

    26. A rapid egg cooker made to take all the time and stress out of cooking eggs just the way you like them. This handy gizmo can cook you soft-, medium-, and hard-boiled eggs (up to six at once), and if you like poached or scrambled eggs, it can do that, too! You can even make an omelet in this thing.


    BuzzFeed Shopping editor Emma Lord has owned the Dash Rapid Egg Cooker for upward of two years and says she's used it faithfully every week. "I especially love it while working from home — it simplifies breakfast because I know no matter what assortment of groceries I'm working with, there are precooked eggs to add some protein to it (I like mine medium-boiled 🍳). If my dinner is boring or seems like it needs a little extra 'oomph' to it, I'll throw in an egg from this too." Some reviews note that the alarm on it is a little loud, but the new models have significantly decreased the volume and sing a little song instead!

    Promising review: "I have been wanting one of these for a while now. It was on sale so figured now was the time. I made hard-boiled eggs, omelet, and poached. They all came out perfect the first time and super easy. I am disappointed that I didn't get this sooner. The amount of time I could have saved." —Brent Carlson

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in five colors).

    27. Catnip-infused felt balls to keep your cat(s) endlessly entertained, even those kitties who might not normally be into play or aren't that active. Bonus: They're super adorable and available in multiple colors!

    Simply B Vermont / Etsy

    Promising reviews: "My cats absolutely flipped for these felted balls! They are both catnip fiends, so I assumed these would be a hit, but I underestimated how much they'd love playing with them. A huge hit in our household!" —Danielle Taylor

    "These are super cute, and I love that I can recharge the item with the good stuff in the tin; my cats are obsessed. I have four cats, and never have they all gone nuts for the same toy until now. I just ordered more balls and tea bags. Whatever is in this, the cats love. <3" —Jennifer Smith

    Get a set of four from Simply B Vermont on Etsy for $13.99 (available in several colors).

    28. And on that note: A ChomChom pet hair roller if pet hair has taken over your entire home and no matter how hard you try to clean it, there's always a little bit left over. The ChomChom roller doesn't mess with sticky tapes or paper; instead, you get a reusable brush that grabs up every bit of hair and lint as you clean — just empty it out after, and you're good to go again!

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my cat-loving life? Sticky rollers work fine for clothes, but this is the only product that has ever COMPLETELY removed all the cat hair from my bed. I have a long-haired 20-pound tabby and if you run your hands up his back a few times and fling the hair everywhere, it looks like it's snowing — he never stops shedding no matter what I do. After using the ChomChom, I can put on a black dress and roll around on my bed and not get a single hair on me. It's absolutely amazing. Everyone is getting one for Christmas, even if they don't have a pet. I don't care, it's THAT good." —Stephanie

    29. A jewelry-cleaning brush to clean your precious gems that have lost their luster over time thanks to buildup from lotions, sprays, and everyday grime. This little brush uses polished bristles and special polymers that get into all the cracks to leave your rings and other jewelry looking fit for royalty afterward!

    Promising review: "Just buy it!!!!! My mom got a ring when she was 18 and wore it every day until I turned 30, and she gave it to me. I always just accepted the stone for the color it was. It had been cleaned several times by the jeweler, but never changed much. I bought this product on a whim after reading about it online. Not only did it completely deep clean my ring to the point of it being unrecognizable, but the brush gets into the nooks and crannies like nothing has before, which is important because both this ring and my wedding ring collect lotions and such like no other. My wedding ring looks amazing, too. My diamonds sparkle everywhere. My only regret is that I didn’t find this product sooner. WELL worth the price. I never write reviews, but this was warranted!" —Erika

    Get it from Amazon for $7.57.

    30. A Tushy bidet attachment for the best bathroom upgrade you'll ever make. You'll reduce your toilet paper use drastically, and even more importantly, your tushy will be way cleaner than you're used to. It's good for you, your wallet, and the planet.


    This toilet seat attachment comes with everything you need to install your new bidet in under 10 minutes!

    Promising review: "You will never ever go back to your days without a Tushy. My roommates were skeptical when I bought this, but every one of us is obsessed (or as obsessed as you can be with a butt washer). You will forever afterward feel that using just toilet paper is basically medieval. At first I thought I should get the heated one, but none of us even mind the cooler water (even though typically I hate cold showers, pools, etc.) so I think it really wasn’t necessary; the standard was a good choice. Such a good purchase. You will save enough money in toilet paper to make it basically free, and you will feel cleaner post poo than you ever have before!" —Mikayla

    Get it from Amazon for $89 (available in three colors) and Tushy for $99 (available in nine colors).

    31. An ultra-breathable 365 Blanket from Muslin Comfort to end the cover tug-of-wars for good! Its temperature control works so well, it's almost like "witchcraft," as one reviewer put it. If you and your partner both sleep hot or at different temperatures, it works to keep both of you at your ideal temp all night long.

    Muslin Comfort

    Note that this blanket is designed to be oversized and will hang over the sides of your bed — this means there's more than enough coverage for two people and won't end up on one person's side every time. It's meant to be used "European style," replacing your comforter and your top sheet to maximize breathability.

    Promising reviews: "My husband and I have been looking for a blanket that would be warm enough for me but cool enough for him at night. We finally found the perfect blanket for our bed! We are also both very tall and absolutely love the oversized nature of this blanket. No more middle of the night tug-of-wars! I will definitely be getting more of these in our future!" —Erin D.

    "I'll be honest, this was a Facebook ad that I was a little upset I 'fell into.' But I am glad I did. 1) My husband and I always fight over the blanket, but this is large and thin enough and this is no longer an issue! 2) By some kind of witchcraft, he stays cool and I stay warm. 3) I was weirded out by not using our top sheet. I was convinced this was crazy, but it works!" —Latasha W.

    "As for comfort and temperature...perfect! I’m 60, so hot flashes are still with me sadly! I’ve had the blanket for three weeks and I’m not kidding…it literally keeps me at the perfect temp. Not hot, not cold. I use it without the top sheet too. Felt weird at first, but by the next night it was all good. The blanket is pricey but well worth it. I did the payment plan, and it is great." —Barbara M.

    Get it from Muslin Comfort for $199.99+ (available in three colors and four sizes).

    32. The Always Pan from Our Place, which will make you look back and regret all the times you dirtied up six different dishes to make one meal. The Always Pan can do it all: braise, sear, steam, strain, sauté, fry, boil, serve, and store. It's also sooo lightweight and compact and comes in eight striking colors.

    Our Place, Abby Kass/BuzzFeed

    Here's what BuzzFeed Shopping writer Taylor Steele has to say about the Always Pan: "As someone who neither enjoys cooking nor is particularly good at it, the Always Pan has made being in the kitchen feel like less of a chore. Having one pan that can do everything means I don't have to second-guess every cooking decision I make. I can boil and prepare pasta in it. And I can roast Brussels sprouts. And I can make the perfect fried egg. And I can steam dumplings. The best part is that everything slides so seamlessly out of the pan and onto the plate, which also makes cleanup super fast and easy. Both the amateur (read: reluctant) cook and the more seasoned chef will enjoy creating fan favorites and new recipes in the Always Pan!"

    Also, BuzzFeeders LOVE this pan. Here's our review of the Always Pan, in which seven members of our team weigh in everything they love about it, from the nonstick coating to the versatility to the ~aesthetic~.

    Get it from Our Place for $115 (originally $145) (available in eight colors).
