Didn't know what to expect as I've worn glasses my whole life and never had an issue but these new glasses were giving me a terrible soreness on just one ear. I put them on both sides just because and such an immediate improvement!" —mommabug

    Promising review: "Oh my goodness. This thing is magical! Daily life lets my ring get a little cloudy or smudged sometimes. One minute with the Dazzle Stick and it looks as beautiful as the night he proposed. It’s sparking all over the place. I LOVE my Dazzle Stick. Some of the best $5 I’ve ever spent.

    5. A drain cover that'll add up to five inches of extra tub water by blocking the drain holes for a more relaxing and deeper soak every time.


    Promising review: "This is a great item to add to your bath time routine! I usually take a bath once or twice a week as a way to unwind, but the tubs in my house aren't very deep, & the water drains through the overflow drain very quickly. This makes it so that the water stays in & you won't have to choose what part of your body to keep under the warm water. It's easy to use & install, just takes a few seconds to make sure all of the suction cups are in place." —Karen B

I really scrub my hands with the bar under running water (using no soap) for a couple minutes and – presto – no smell!" —NY

    Get it from Amazon for $7.88.

    8. A bottle of earwax removal drops that'll do all the hard work for you. Gone are the days of using five Q-tips just to get nothing out, even though you know there's still wax in there!,

    Promising review: "If I showed you what came out of both my ears you wouldn’t believe it! I have chronic ear problems and this was amazing! I put 10 drops in each ear for less then 10 minutes and rinsed with a syringe and warm water. I pulled out clumps of wax that made my partner gag! Instant results for me! I would highly recommend especially if you rinse after!" —Lindsay Nicole Jordan

    Promising review: "This has worked really well for me. I’ve seen other name brands that are way more expensive and don't do the trick. My cat responded well to it and it did a good job of brushing him. Within five minutes it gave me a massive handful of hair. I’m hoping this helps with hair balls!" —mabry

My bunions were driving me crazy. Within just a few minutes of wearing them, I knew I had found an answer. I was able to wear them in my tennis shoes during my workout with no issues. I don't want to take them off! While there is nothing sexy about how they look, there is also nothing sexy about a bunion. I'll choose to wear them and have happy feet." —RHarlow

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in three colors).

    11. A set of microfiber makeup remover cloths to wipe off your products with JUST WATER. That's right, even your waterproof mascara will come right off.

    Promising review: " What I love about these is that you just use warm water and your makeup comes right off! I use benefit mascara which is pretty budge proof, but I just get these wet with warm water and lay down with them over my eyes for a minute or two and the mascara comes off easily without rubbing and feeling like I'm pulling out my eyelashes. I literally have over 21 of these, I highly recommend!" —Ktristch

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!!" —DebSd

    Promising review: "These magnetic key racks are fantastic. I bought a couple packs and placed them in the hallway and my bedroom so they are always in my line of sight or where I know I will be walking. I've had these for a few weeks now and the keys haven't dropped at all. I usually lose my keys here and there but haven't since I bought these because hanging them up is convenient. They are also easy to install, taking me about three minutes per magnet. I highly recommend getting these." —Mike

Fortunately, I came across these cable clips, and they turned out to be a very inexpensive and simple solution! It only took a few minutes to stick them in place, and the cables clip right in and look great.
