    1. A bottle of makeup brush shampoo so your favorite tools can look how they did when you *first* brought them home β€” without any harsh ingredients.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Well, I can happily say that this cleaner does a bang-up job! My brushes were saturated with old color, to the point that I thought I might need to spring for a new set. Aside from just looking bad, though, all that old color was probably affecting pigment and application any time I used them. A little of this cleaner, a handful of seconds working it in and rinsing, and my brushes look practically as good as the day I bought them! Saved me a ton of money in new brushes, and it didn't take away from my being-lazy time!" β€”ysar

    Get it from Amazon for $5.59 (available in cleansing cloths).

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

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask 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 HydroFlask 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 HydroFlask 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

    3. A three-pack of plastic plumbing snake drains so you can take care of slow-flowing drains with just a few minutes of work, no need to call the plumber. No need to take apart the drain; this'll slide right in and the hooks will do the trick.

    amzn.to / amzn.to / amzn.to

    Promising review: "You will not regret buying these. They work SO well. I had constant draining issues in my shower and so I figured I would search 'Hair Drain' on Amazon. Lo and behold, there I was searching for tools to clean out my drain. I did not expect these to work so well! They are made out of sturdy plastic and I was able to use it both on my shower AND my sink drains before being too grossed out and needing to throw it away." β€”Nhi

    Price: $5.99

    4. An all-natural henna powder that'll have you saying hello to the brightest hair πŸ‘of πŸ‘your πŸ‘life!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I can't stress enough how much I LOVE henna. I use it for pretty much everything β€” hair, nails, and lips. This is the cheapest henna I've found that hasn't lost its quality. I've been using henna for about a year and it leaves a gorgeous, natural-looking red that no chemical dye I've used could beat." β€”Krista M.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.98.

    5. A disposable toilet cleaning kit designed to clean the crap outta your toilet bowl.

    amazon.com

    Are you grossed out by the fact that your old toilet brush is sitting in literal filth? Then this scrubber kit is for you. It includes a wand, storage caddy, and six refill sponges, the latter of which you could toss after just one use. Plus the cleaning liquid needed is built-in so you really don't have to do anything at all!

    Promising review: "Nothing could be easier than this. Just swish and toss! The soft squishy sponge gets under the rim easily, unlike a stiff brush. The best part, of course, is that you dispose of the sponge after just one use. No more keeping that dirty brush under the bathroom sink! This system is a keeper and I bought one for every bathroom in my house." β€”Carol Lynn

    Get this kit from Amazon for $8.88.

    6. A flexible cable protector so you can prevent your charging cord from fraying after, like, two weeks. We all wish we bought this like three chargers ago, but now's your chance!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I hate to recall how many new iPhone chargers and MacBook power bricks I've had to buy over the years as the originals gradually frayed at the connector ends until they stopped working altogether. These inexpensive little coils wind right around the connector base and first half inch or so of the cord to keep it from bending and ultimately breaking at the join. Genius." β€”ElleNWC

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $8.97 (available in three color combos).

    7. A produce-saving storage container that'll save you money by keeping your food fresh for up to two weeks longer than average. The interior tray helps keep moisture away from produce and the vent technology regulates flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide for the ideal produce environment. #science

    Natalie Brown / Via BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This produce box is helping me cut food waste in a serious way. Normally, my strawberries begin to wilt within five days but the box has kept them fresh for up to two weeks! It also kept my leafy herbs lively for nearly a month. Skeptics beware, this product may convert you." β€”Molly

    Get a four-cup container from Amazon for $9.99.

    8. A Magic Eraser because you're tired of looking down at a gross tub every time you get in the shower.

    amazon.com

    These melamine eraser sponges are super tough on stains, but won't damage the surface underneath said stain.

    Promising review: "I never thought I'd be able to get the weird pink soap stains out of my tub. Picture someone scrubbing with cleaning products until their arms were sore, to no avail. But this worked with no effort! It's unbelievable. Please never let this go off the market!" β€”Catherine King

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $2.47 or two packs of four from Amazon for $10.91.

    9. A set of hair extensions that'll look like you grew them yourself.

    amazon.com

    The single most miraculous part? They're under $10.

    Promising review: "This was the best nine dollars I've spent in a long time! The color is a perfect match to my hair. The hair is very long β€” I cut at least 12 inches off. It stays in place very well. This is a fun addition to my going out look." β€”SBonert

    Get them from Amazon for $9.49 (available in four sizes and 24 colors).

    10. 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!

    amazon.com

    As if that wasn't easy enough, these are also machine washable so you can use them again and again!

    Promising review: "I was skeptical of these, but now I'm pretty sure they're what Mulan's outfit was made of when she wiped her makeup off on her sleeve in the movie. Even totally dry, they do a pretty impressive job of taking off all my makeup (including waterproof eyeliner and mascara) in a couple swipes. I like to use a little micellar water to make my skin feel a little cleaner. It's nice not to burn through so many cotton pads." β€”RachelM

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $7.12.

    11. A bottle of Feed-N-Wax Wood Polish you woodn't believe took just minutes to turn this table brand new again! In addition to polishing, it adds a protective layer and helps prevent the wood from drying out or fading.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn-out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs who had jumped up and scratched places, and we also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were and several other areas that were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magic eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemishes. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let is sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand new. We're so glad we found this product." β€”Kris

    12. A John Frida frizz serum for anyone with enough static in their hair to power a small village.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm not sure what I'd do without my Frizz Ease. It smooths out my unruly hair leaving it manageable, but not heavy, sticky, or weighed down. My hair actually looks good when I use this product." β€”Dana G

    Get it from Amazon for $8.45 (available in three styles).

    13. A pack of BootRescue cleaning wipes for your favorite pair of leather or suede shoes that got stained from the salted snow.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Worked perfectly on black suede booties. Splattered some creamy soup on them two months ago. Couldn't find anything that removed the stain. Tried these wipes as a last ditch effort. I can't believe it, they look brand new!! Stains came right out with very little effort." β€”AAD

    Get it from Amazon for $8.27 (available in a resealable pack).

    14. A restorative headlight wipe kit to make your headlights look so shiny and new, people will think you just drove it off the lot.

    amazon.com

    Because clearer headlights aren't only prettier, but they're safer too! Plus, the treatment claims to last a long time β€” just one treatment can last years.

    Promising review: "This stuff worked great! My car is six years old but it looked more like 20 with the cloudy headlights. The kit I received came with a double-sided fine sandpaper-type square, a red cloth, blue gloves, and a sealed package containing the wipe. The instructions are simple and clear: wet the surface and use the green side of the square to gently scrub off the milky, yellowish stuff on your headlights. Follow up with another splash of water and use the grey side to polish. This step will take more time and effort depending on how bad your headlights are. Once you think you're ready for the last step, take the red cloth and thoroughly dry the surface. I let it sit for a few minutes to make sure everything was dry as a bone. Last step: put on the gloves, open the packet, remove the thick wipe and carefully go over the surface once. All in all, this was a simple procedure that didn't take too much effort and my headlights look brand new. Win-win!" β€”Jeneroo2u

    Get it from Amazon for $8.88 (available in a pack of six).

    15. A foot file that'll make even the crustiest of heels smooth again. Just look at those r~heel~y incredible results.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing is pretty amazing. I was skeptical for sure, since I've tried all kinds of lotions, balms, and stone-based products, none of which helped my heels whatsoever. I've worn socks to bed for years, because if I don't the sheets hardly last a week before they have holes rubbed through them. My wife ordered this thing that looks like a mini cheese grater, lol, and after two minutes β€” two minutes!! β€” of rubbing it on my heel, it's a complete 180. I never would've believed it until I tried it myself. This is well worth double what it costs." β€”LBK

    Get it from Amazon for $4.80.

    16. A durable honeycomb drawer insert to form a home for your socks, scarves, ties, undies, etc. No more digging for a matching pair!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Perfect way to organize socks and make it fun to open the drawer and be like 'what socks am I gonna wear today?' And all the colors and patterns beam back at you. If you have boring socks then I would say screw it because you are boring." β€”Esq

    Get it from Amazon for $7.04.

    17. A pumice cleaning stone that'll have you closing the lid on calcium and lime stains.

    amazon.com

    FYI: Its material is specially made to avoid scratching. Plus the heavy-duty plastic handle protects your hands while you clean.

    Promising review: "I'm so embarrassed to show how disgusting my toilets have been, but it's worth it for me to help anyone who has suffered as I have. We built our house and have lived in it 33 years. We dug a well and the water was beautiful, until air hit it. The copper, iron, and lime are all so high the chart doesn't even go that high. We have spent thousands on a huge filter that filters all the water coming into the house from the well. My toilets have been disgusting to me, though clean (as clean as I can get them). This pumice stone β€” HOLY MOLY β€” my toilets are clean!!!!! I am totally amazed. It took about 30 minutes on each one. The stains are gone. THEY ARE GONE!!!!!!" β€”Libby Nance

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    18. A shaper insert so your boots stand tall (to prevent creasing and to create more space on your closet floor).

    Amazon, amazon.com

    They're also customizable for ankle, calf, and knee-high boots with guides to trim them to fit your shoes.

    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. Height is adjustable for short, medium, and tall boots!" β€”PK

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $8.07 (available in two and four pairs)

    19. A tube of vegan and cruelty-free activated charcoal teeth whitening toothpaste so your pearly whites can shine as bright as your personality!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love Hello toothpaste. First off, it's cruelty free, second, it works so much better than anything I've ever used! I have gotten several different kinds but had to try this charcoal toothpaste. Oh golly it's black as black can be and when it says spit responsibly, yeah they're not joking. Too funny, little black spots everywhere, but has never stained anything just shows me I'm really a terrible spitter. Anyway, the toothpaste itself is wonderful, I've noticed considerable whitening and cleaning and my mouth feeling so fresh and clean. I love this toothpaste." β€”Mary

    Get it from Amazon for $4.82 (available in three flavors and five sizes).

    20. A bottle of pre-mixed Barkeeper's Friend cleanser for when you're dealing with stains that regular soap, water, and scrubbing won't budge.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Bar Keepers Friend Soft Cleanser 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€”SmallTownGirl

    Get it from Amazon for $8.57 (available in three sizes).

    21. A grout pen to transform your bathroom tile so it looks brand new! Just remember to color inside the lines.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised by how far these went. I did the entire floor of my large master bathroom plus a little of the shower with one pen. It is pretty forgiving and you have quite a bit of working time before it dries completely. This was not a quick task, but it went faster than I thought it would. I was worried the white would look too bright, but it just makes everything look so much cleaner. Very happy with this product!" β€”Jenelle

    Get it on Amazon for $8.99 (four colors).

    22. A bottle of stain remover that'll dissolve even the worst rust stains right before your very eyes, no scrubbing required.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Holy wizardry! Seriously it was more work to clean the mirror over the vanity than use this product. I definitely suggest wearing a mask or bandana and running the ventilation fan if spraying in an enclosed area. Great product!" β€”Jessica B

    Get a bottle on Amazon for $5.

    23. A bottle of Thayer's alcohol-free witch hazel toner with aloe vera so you can moisturize, cleanse, reduce inflammation, and balance the pH levels of your skin with just one product!

    Acne? Redness? Irritation? Dry skin? This stuff has got you covered.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this product. I have enlarged pores, adult acne, dry cheeks, an oily T-zone, and uneven skin. My skin is also extremely sensitive to products. I've been using this product daily for two months and it has alleviated or improved all my skin problems. It doesn’t dry out my skin. I haven't had a single pimple since using this product. My pores look smaller. It’s very gentle and doesn’t burn at all. It smells very nice. I just purchased my second bottle and this is definitely something I will continue to purchase." β€”Jackie

    Get it from Amazon for $8.54 (available in three scents).

    24. A can of oven cleaner that'll have you doing double takes and baking cakes in no time.

    amazon.com

    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 elbo 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

    Get it from Amazon for $5.97.

    25. A jar of O'Keefe's Working Hands cream, the ultimate savior for cracked knuckles that over 7,000 Amazon reviewers swear by.

    Promising review: "Every winter, my fingers and knuckles crack and bleed. I've tried everything on the market to heal my hands. I received this hand cream yesterday and when I put it on, I could tell right away that this was better than anything I'd tried. This stuff started working immediately. I filled all the cuts and cracks on my hands with this cream, and today they are almost healed. I believe that this is the best hand cream ever made on earth." β€”Steve

    Get them on Amazon for $5.99.

    27. A double closet rod so your little ones can actually reach their clothes in the morning. Don't share a closet with kids? Get TWICE as much hanging space for your clothes! Plus no installation needed, just hang it from the top rod.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This was exactly what I was looking for. My 5 and 3 yr old loves dressing themself but could not reach their cloths so this is the perfect solution. I like that it was all metal and there were no straps or ropes he could get tangled in. Seems durable and held a lot of cloths. I saw others that were adjustable and that would have been nice but this seems sturdy. Would recommend." β€”LuvShping

    Get it from Amazon for $12.96.

    28. A stick jewelry cleaner because years of wear have dulled your precious stones more than you might think. Use this pen to remember what they looked like when you first got them!
