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

    1. A 10-pack of gas stove burner covers you can easily remove and clean with a quick rinse in the sink (or pop in the dishwasher). Crusty and rusty stoves are not inviting when you're about to cook dinner.

    Good news! You can trim these to fit whatever size stove top you're working with.

    Promising review: "A great way to keep your stove top nice and clean. The gas stove burners covers can be cut to fit your stove needs. There are 10 burner covers in the bag. Placing the covers on the stove takes care of those messy spills and grease. I simply lift the covers off the stove and rinse off for easy cleanup. The quality is good and they work well on my gas stove. I just trimmed them to fit my burners." β€”sbrady

    2. A squeegee broom to rid your carpet, rugs, tile, and hardwood floors of every last pet hair you know has been building up for months and months.

    What's especially great about this product is that it works on such a variety of surfaces so if you're cleaning your living room carpet of pet hair you can move right on into the kitchen and do the same thing with the tiles.

    Promising review: "This is 1,000% worth it y'all! I read about this on BuzzFeed and had it on my wish list for a few weeks. When our 9-month-old black lab came back from the trainer, I knew it was time to get something to help the mountains of hair. I got this in today and tried it out. I didn't think it would get much. I swept last night. Oh my lawd. The hair it picked up was ridiculous! If you have pets and hardwood floors, you need this. Life-changing! So glad I bought this!" β€”Katherine Burch

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    3. A tea bag organizer so you can finally declutter your pantry that currently has 10 bulky, half-empty tea boxes in it.

    This organizer can hold approximately 100 tea bags.

    Promising review: "I love tea. In fact, I don't drink coffee so I buy a lot of varieties of tea and then put it in my cabinet and promptly forget them. I finally saw this product and bought it to help organize them. Who knew I had so many different teas! I totally forgot I had most of them. Now I have a neat display of my teas and can easily choose what tea I am in the mood for without taking things out of my cupboard. It looks great on my countertop near my fridge and doesn't take a lot of room. Love it. It's my new favorite thing. Worth every penny. Now I think I need another one." β€”Kasia K

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    4. A bamboo burner cover that'll magically double as a cutting board. It'll give you more counter space than you ever imagined was possible for years to come.

    Jennifer Tonti / BuzzFeed

    OK so I just bought this for my own tiny apartment (pictured above) and OMG you guys. Life = changed. Food = chopped. Counter space = doubled. I mean the math is all there.

    Promising review: "This is so perfect for extra space, it covers the top of my apartment-sized stove so I can then use my stove space for my Instapot and food prep, etc. The best space saving and cosmetic thing I have ever gotten for this tiny apartment." β€”Talyn

    Get it from Amazon for $24.75+ (available in seven sizes and styles).

    5. A four-piece acrylic canister set with an airtight clip for all of your flour, sugar, and cocoa needs. Seeing everything clean and organized will promote actually using these items instead of them sitting in the back of your cabinet for years! (speaking from experience here)

    the four canisters on the counter filled up with baking items

    Promising review: "Got these because I was keeping flour, sugar, etc. in original packaging and ants found where I was keeping everything. This solved that problem with airtight containers that are easy to use. They look great on my counter top and really help me look like a person who has my life together." β€”Nathaniel Hachten

    Get it from Amazon for $29.

    6. An outlet shelf so your bathroom products don't take up precious counter space and clutter your morning routine.

    Promising review: "I have been looking for a small shelf for my bathroom to put my mini speaker on and this is the BEST! The size is perfect; I love it." β€”KMAC

    Get it from Amazon for $5.80+ (available in three colors and multipacks).

    7. An under-cabinet drawer because the piles under the sink are getting out of hand. It has a handy sliding basket so you can easily access sponges, wipes, soap, etc.


    Promising review: "These are nice pieces that helped me organize underneath my bathroom sink! They fit perfectly! After organizing everything, I was so surprised I had so much more room that I grabbed more items out of the linen closet to fill it up. I still have a lot of room left. I bought these based off the high ratings and they hold true. (This is Brad's wife.)" β€”Brad J. Leahy

    Get it from Amazon for $24.87 (also available in bronze).

    8. A narrow cart to fit perfectly between your washer and dryer or in that little spot by the corner so all your items are in one neat place.

    Promising review: "This cart is perfect. It is sturdy and rolls well. I have a tile floor in the laundry, and it has no issues rolling. The plastic appears and feels strong. It fits perfectly in the 11-inch space between my washer and dryer." β€”Alicja

    Get it from Amazon for $40.98.

    9. A set of six stackable organizers so you can see everything you own and it doesn't get forgotten about for years. Seriously, years!


    Promising review: "Great product! I bought these to put in my night stand drawer to store small things as the drawer is very deep. I've got ChapStick, hand lotions, a small flashlight, and other bedside items in them so they're not just rolling around the drawer. I just bought some more for my bathroom vanity. They fit together nicely but also lift right out of each other. The plastic is sturdy and they came individually wrapped to keep them from scratching." β€”Sparkyj

    Get the set of six from Amazon for $15.99.

    10. A handled nail polish organizer because you like to paint them at home yourself these days and you want to see all the options you have.

    before: a pile of nail polishes and after: the polishes neatly lined up in the 8-across, 3- high grid of the case (which also has a convenient handle)

    Promising review: "This is better than advertised. Essie, OPI, Pop-Arrazi, Sinful Colors, SH Instadry, SH Triple Shine, SH Xtrreme Wear, Wet & Wild, SH Hard As Nails and Covergirl all fit perfectly; my Julep colors fit two to a compartment! The first row has adjustable dividers, you can use them to keep odd-shaped bottles or do what I do: use one side for my nail stamper, dotting tools, and the drying drops and the other for foam wedges and nail pens. It looks way neater easily tucked under my vanity instead of the baskets and baskets of polishes I had to hunt through!" β€”Clouds

    Get it from Amazon for $27.89+ (also available in pink).

    11. A pack of shoe doublers for your shoes to sit neatly on top of one another instead of shoved aggressively into the back of your closet like mine are!

    A reviewer photo showing 11 pairs of shoes fitting on a six-pair shoe rack, because the doublers allow each pair to stack on top of each other

    Promising review: "I love to be organized so when I came across the Shoe Slotz product to organize my shoes on the shelves in my closet, I was excited to try them. They were easy to set up and they work great! I still had more shoes that needed to be organized so I immediately ordered another box of 10. My shoe shelves look so organized now and this product solved a problem for me. Shoe Slotz are great and I highly recommend them." β€”Laurden2

    Get a set of 10 from Amazon for $23.95.

    12. A hanger stacker to fix one of the most annoying storage problems in your entire house. Raise your hand if you've been personally victimized by a cluster of hangers. This "before" and "after" alone has already changed me for the better!

    A before and after of hangers all messy and then very organized on the product

    Promising review: "Very nice! Cheaper than some other models and works to secure hangers quite well! I even added a padded coat hanger to see if it would hold in place and it does. This is sturdy enough to pick up and carry around without the hangers sliding about. Very happy with this purchase!"β€”Parv

    Get it from Amazon for $18.47.

    13. A set of two vinyl furniture scratch guards so your pets will finally get the message that your really expensive couch is not their really expensive toy.

    A side by side showing a damaged leg of the couch next to the protected side un-touched

    Promising review: "I purchased these because my destructive cats tore up two sofas. I purchased a new sofa and didn't want to go down that road again if I could help it. I have already tried sprays, calming scent diffusers, and double sided tape. None of these worked. I put these on two sofas and so far my cats have left them alone. I have had them on for a couple of months. Of course, you can see them but they have an obvious purpose. They attach by screw in fasteners with a spiral pin. I haven't had any problem with rips from these. They needed tightening a couple times, but that is it." β€”Kristy

    Get it from Amazon for $9.90+ (available in six sizes).

    14. A bag of Bottle Bright tablets for cleaning your bottles, plastic containers, mugs, and everything else with no scrubbing required. We love an all-natural, no-hassle way to clean!

    A dirty water bottle next to the same one now clean

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting Hydro Flask coffee mug β€” I tried everything. Bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER Hydro Flask to replace it. Now eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. 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 I used it on another Hydro Flask 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." β€”Amazon Customer

    15. A three-pack of plastic plumbing snake drains so you can take care of the slow-flowing drains that have been bugging you for weeks. With just a few minutes of work (no need to call the plumber, or take apart the drain) this'll slide right in and the hooks will do the trick.

    A reviewer using the drain snake to remove hair from their drain

    Promising review: "I’m so excited to finally have a bathroom sink that drains!! Since moving into my apartment, my bathroom sink and bathtub took forever to drain. When my bathtub was taking over an hour to drain I decided it was time to try these out! After receiving it I went to work, within minutes it pulled out so much hair in both drains. It’s disturbing/disgusting yet weirdly satisfying because now my sinks drain!!" β€”DebSd

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    16. A can of fume-free oven cleaner so all you have to do is spray, wait, and wipe away. It works so well it'll have you doubting you ever used your oven in the first place! Let's bake a cake to celebrate.

    Promising review: "I'm a little embarrassed to write this review; it's been six years since my last oven cleaning. After seeing the results, I couldn't help but spread the word. Sure, it took some beer, a little John Mayer, and a lot of elbow grease, but I got the job done, thanks to this handy little product. It did require two treatments; however, given the circumstances, this product accomplished quite a feat in just an hour." β€”William Fredericks

    Get it from Amazon for $17.37

    17. A pet hair remover roller because your couch used to be a different color and the sneezing has gotten out of hand!


    Added bonus! This product doesn't use sticky adhesive paper. The roller can be reused over and over again because of its high-quality bristles that grab the hair like a brush!

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my crazy 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." β€”Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    18. A 24-pocket door hanging sleeve that'll make any type of storage closet you're tackling this summer feel 100% more organized by the time you're done. Knock, knock. Who's there? Storage solutions at a great price.

    Promising review: "I am very happy with this over-door shoe holder. I have a small closet and didn't want to have my shoes all in a big pile on the floor, making them hard to find and hard to get to." β€”Kathleen R.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.97+ (available in three colors).

    19. A bottle of nonabrasive, pre-mixed Bar Keepers Friend cleanser for when you're dealing with stains and rust that regular soap, water, and scrubbing won't budge.

    Two candle sticks side by side; one having been treated with the product and looking brand new and the other still rusted over

    Promising review: "This is at the very top of our cleaning supply list. It cleans anything we have ever tried it on. Our kitchen pots and pans are absolutely perfectly shiny and like new after almost 30 years since we purchased them. Our old historic home's sink comes beautifully clean with this. The bathroom is sparkly clean and looks wonderful." β€”Small~Town~Girl

    Get it from Amazon for $15.49.

    Check out my colleague's Bar Keepers Friend review and see how she cleaned her entire apartment with it.

    20. A set of Affresh dishwasher cleaning tablets that'll make the thing that cleans your stuff actually clean itself! There is residue that's been hanging out in there for a while now and this is a simple and fast solution to get rid of it.

    Use these once a month to penetrate, dissolve, and remove odor-causing buildup.

    Promising review: "This 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, no more odors, no more 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." β€”Martoune

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    21. A dryer vent coil brush to remove lint and dust buildup in important spaces that could cause harm if left there.

    Promising review: "We are in love! This thing cleans so well and gets all the way down the line and around the corner. It's wide bristles really help get all the lint out and even help scrub some of the really stuck in their pieces off. We use this regularly now to clean out the vent!" β€”Leslie G

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    22. A set of stove counter gap covers, because you and I both know that when current-you drops food behind the stove, it's future-you that's gonna have to deal with it.

    A reviewer's kitchen showing the gap between the counter and the oven covered with the product

    Promising review: "I can't believe how much crud I have cleaned out between my counter and my stove. This lays in the opening between the two so nothing gets down into the space between. Just lay it down very easily, and it stays put. It looks like it is part of the stove. It is easy to clean; just wipe off when you clean the stove or counter. I have had no problem with melting as it is not on the burners, it is on the side of the stove. However, it is heat-resistant, so the heat from the stove will not bother it. I would definitely buy this again." β€”Joanne

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $9.95+ (available two lengths and three colors).

    23. A shaper insert so you can prevent your favorite knee-high and over-the-knee boots from creasing and creating more space on your closet floor.

    They're also customizable for ankle, calf, and knee-high boots with guides to trim them to the right height.

    Promising review: "These are simple shapes of die-cut black plastic that you bend and insert into boots to keep them upright. The plastic has enough springiness that they expand to the width of the boot, and also a slight ribbing on one side (the side you put facing the boots) so they don't slip." β€”PK

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $10.76.
