    25 Products You’ll Probably Be Glad You Bought Every Time You Use Them

    *uses product* I'm sooo glad I bought this.

    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 pack of four shower curtain adhesive clips that'll act as a splash guard every time you shower so you can be glad you won't step out onto a soaking wet bathroom floor every day.

    Amazon

    It'll also prevent your bathmat and the area around your shower from getting moldy and mildewy by keeping the water where it belongs.

    Promising review: "I purchased a couple gadgets here on Amazon that claim to minimize or eliminate shower water seepage and have easy installs. These clips are the best gadget I purchased, and I plan to buy more to hold down the base of my shower curtain. I have them on both the outside and inside of the shower. They are installed on the left side of the shower, the side that we do not use to enter the shower. That way they just stay in place." —Kimber

    Get it from Amazon for $7.69 (available in a pack of four and eight).

    2. An over-the-drain hair stopper, because every time you shower you'll see just how much hair floats towards the drain only to be stopped by this genius contraption. You'll be extra glad you bought this when you don't have to un-clog your drains.

    amzn.to / amzn.to

    Promising review: "I've been very impressed! It's tall enough to fit easily over my pop-up drain and (even without suction cups) the weighted top keeps it in place. I have medium-length hair and seem to shed almost as much as my cat, but the drain protector catches it all and is easily removed and tossed away. Best of all, the silicone doesn't hold onto mildew or mold. I have been able to spray and wipe away any grime with very little effort. It looks like this drain protector will last a very long time. This has been a very worthy purchase!"—Suneimi

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in a pack of two).

    3. A personal password book because, like me, you keep adding a number to the end of your passwords and you've lost count and also lost sleep. Just keep your passwords all in one place so when you do forget, you'll be glad it's just a page away in your drawer.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "When we have so many internet addresses and passwords to remember, it gets really hard — especially when you get older and have trouble remembering what silly password you gave something. And, we are supposed to change or update passwords from time to time, so this is a great tool to help us do that. It certainly makes more sense than scribbling on a random piece of paper on your desk and then misplacing it. The trick, however, is to not misplace the book! I HIGHLY recommend this!!" —Carole P

    Get it from Amazon for $6.44.

    4. A pack of motion-sensing LED lights, because while you're on your way to the kitchen in the middle of the night, you'll be glad not to stub your toe for the millionth time! These are a cheap way to get helpful lighting in places that need it most around your home. You don't need to get professional installation — just stick them on.

    amazon.com

    They're battery-powered (three AAA batteries; not included) for cordless installation. They automatically turn on within 10 feet and automatically shut off after 15 seconds of no motion detected.

    Promising review: "Excellent unwired lights for places that would benefit from having lights but you don’t want the hassle and expense of hiring an electrician to do the wiring for the lights. I have four of these lights inside hallway shelves. This hallway gets a lot of foot traffic. In the evening, these lights get triggered on by a passerby by at least 20 times. I’ve had these lights for two whole months, and the original batteries are still good to go. Please be advised that these white lights are rather cool temperature lights. I would estimate around 5,000K. If you’re looking for something slightly warmer (i.e. slightly more yellow) then opt for the warm white version." —H. Jonathan K. Park

    Get them from Amazon: a six-pack for $19.99 (available in four colors) or a three-pack for $12.97.

    5. A bottle of Burt's Bees sunburn lotion to soothe the biggest mistake you've made in a long time— forgetting the SPF!

    amazon.com

    Two words: aloe and coconut! Those are the main two ingredients and with results like these, we have no choice but to stan.

    Promising review: "Best product ever for sunburns! No peeling or itching. Simply amazing! The photos are four days apart." —Carrie

    Get it from Amazon for $7.68.

    6. A portable bug bite suction tool that'll reduce the itching and swelling your body is experiencing after a mosquito, bee, or wasp sting.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    The suction can be pretty strong so use caution and try a small amount of suction first and work your way up if necessary.

    Promising review: "I am a magnet for bites of all kinds and carry topical and medicines with me at all times — so I figured this would be a good product to see if it really works. I woke up with a bug bite on my arm so I used this little tool (three times per the instructions) — immediately after using, it stopped itching! And less than 24 hours later the bump/bite gone! There is a very faint red mark from using the thing, but a small price to pay IMO. Bottom line: it’s awesome. I’m carrying it with me everywhere!" —Rebecca

    Get two from Amazon for $18.95.

    7. A bag of Bottle Bright tablets that'll clean your bottles, plastic containers, mugs, and everything else, with no scrubbing required. We love reusable bottles but boy do they get dirty. You'll be glad to have these on hand every now and again for a fresh clean.

    amazon.com

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

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $8.

    8. A comfy, memory foam chair cushion for anyone who's been searching for something to help soothe their back pain and/or work on their posture.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Works great, helps to relieve some pressure from sitting. This is a great memory foam cushion for office chairs or your couch. You really can feel the difference. This is thick, and feels like it will last for a really long time. I've been using mine for a couple of weeks and already feel a little better. The cover is removable for washing, and the stitching is done really well. I recommend this to anyone who has to sit for more than a few hours." —phillygirl

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95.

    9. A set of anti-chafing thigh bands to protect the skin on your inner thighs from rubbing together and getting red and irritated. Whether it's a long day exploring the city or a hike on a long trail, you'll be happy to have these on you.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are fantastic! I work overnights and wear dresses regularly to the office. This is it! So comfortable I fell asleep in them! No marks, no uncomfortable feeling or digging into the skin." —A.Spencer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95+ (available in six sizes and 15 colors).

    Read more about these anti-chafe bands in our closer look!

    10. A ceiling fan metal pull chain with two pulleys, because you've spent the last few years guessing which chain turns on the light and which turns on the fan. Plus, if you're short like me, these are great for extending the chain a bit so you can actually reach them now.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    It's upgrading the small things in life you do everyday that'll really make you glad you bought something!

    Promising review: "Not only can I finally tell which pull chain works which function, but since I added them to the ends of my existing pull chains it's no longer necessary for my ancient 5-foot 1-inch carcass to stand on tiptoe just to reach the blasted pulls. Last time I ended up with a stress fracture in my foot. NOT fun." —La Donna Bucket

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in three colors and two packs).

    11. A silicone freezing tray that'll freeze a section of soup, sauce, or pasta, so you get perfect freshly frozen meals for the week. When you come home after a long day at work you'll be super thankful this is one less thing you have to think about.

    amazon.com

    It comes with a lid to help maintain freshness and keep out odors. It's made of food-safe silicone that's BPA-free and dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "This is the best invention since sliced bread! How many times have you thrown out soup that you forgot about in your fridge??? Well, say goodbye to spoiled soup! Finally, a way to store measured quantities of broth, but I love to use mine for soup and...wait for it...SMOOTHIES! These cubes are the best for freezing measured quantities of smoothies, simply throw one in the Vitamix, and boom! You have a fresh, already icy cold smoothie for breakfast or a snack! For anyone with limited freezer space which, let's face it, is most of us, this is a real gem. I was a bit worried about how easily the cubes would slide out, but no problems at all! The best part is how easy the cubes store in a gallon sized ziplock bag so you can reuse the cubes. AND they are dishwasher safe??? Souper Cubes, why did you take so long to come into my life!??! I can't wait until the holiday season so I can gift these as stocking stuffers — to anyone I know, you now know your gift." —jane s. catalano

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

    12. A mini fabric steamer, because you can't believe the amount of times you've wanted to wear your favorite outfit but it was wrinkly beyond belief. Once you buy this, you'll be glad you bought it time and time again.

    amazon.com, BuzzFeed

    I personally own this steamer and I love how compact and effortless it is! Pop off the top spout, pour in water from the sink, plug it in and within SECONDS it's steaming and ready to go.

    Promising review: "I’ve had this for a few months now and I use it all the time! It heats up so fast and steams the fabric within seconds! I have had no problems with water spitting out or being burnt at all. I love this machine so much I am bringing it with me on my international trips! So I have to say don’t think twice this is a must buy!"—Emily

    Get it from Amazon for $25.97.

    Check out a BuzzFeed editor's review of this steamer to find out more.

    13. A pair of lightweight and durable escape tracks that everyone will wish they had once they get stuck in a tough spot. The raised tracks prevent vehicle tires from spinning on snow, ice, mud or sand.

    Amazon

    These are great if you're someone who likes to take your car off the beaten path. If you're ever stuck in one of these situations, you'll be happy to have these guys in your trunk!

    Promising review: "These traction pads are amazing! For anybody that's never used them, essentially you jam them against your drive tires in slick conditions or if you're stuck in sand, and your tires grip them and pull you right out! The bright orange makes them easy to see after digging them into the mud, and the knobs are durable enough to withstand a very large truck's beating. For the price, the quality, the durability, and the hundreds of uses, you can't go wrong with these. If I could give them six stars I would have!" —sean

    Get them from Amazon for $151.87+.

    14. A hand-held pressure washer, because every time you use it it'll remind you how much time, effort, and money you're saving with such a powerful friend by your side.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    You can use this pressure washer on outdoor cushions, wood decks, house siding, and so many other places. It has 1500 PSI at 1.2 GPM so dirt and grime don't stand a chance. Order includes a 25° and 40° quick connect tip and a 20-foot hose for greater reach. It also comes with a soap applicator and a 35-foot power cord for when you use it outside.

    Promising review: "This is my favorite new toy! I already owned the regular Green Works power washer, but being a 63-year-old, there were times I just didn't want to drag the big one up and down steps, so my son suggested I look at a hand held pressure washer. I didn't even know they existed, but found this one on Amazon and since I was already happy with the large Green Works, decided to try it. The first thing I used it for was to power-wash my shower grout and it worked great! The electric and water lines were long enough to reach into my shower and it did a spectacular job. No more hand scrubbing for me!" —Linda

    Get it from Amazon for $89 (available in two strengths).

    15. A lipstick-sized portable charger with more than enough juice to revive your dying phone without taking up too much space. Always a lifesaver to have a charger around when you need it most.

    Amazon

    This lil' guy can add over one charge to an iPhone 8 or at least 80% to the Galaxy S8 and other popular smartphones.

    Promising review: "I have several backup battery chargers for my devices, but this is the one I go to again and again. The main reason is the size — this fits anywhere. It's like the size of a very small flashlight or, for ladies, probably a large lipstick. My other chargers tend to be bulky and rectangular, whereas this easily fits in my pocket. It will readily charge up my iPhone, and while it won't fully charge my tablet, it will extend the battery life." —AmazonCustomer

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

    16. A pack of 42 twist-flex rods for anyone trying to get curls in the easiest way possible. You'll be glad you bought these the second you try to go back to curling each strand individually. Next!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I left the largest rollers, the purple and grey ones, in for two hours to see how the curls would turn out. The results were great! The rollers are the perfect size and gave me the same look as my expensive digital perm. I've been getting digital perms for the last year to the tune of $200 every 3-4 months, so these rollers, at $12 a pack, are a steal." —Hoyablue

    Get it from Amazon for $11.30 (available in three sizes).

    17. A few Mighty Handles that'll help you achieve your life-long goal of only making one trip. So helpful and so satisfying all at the same time.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I'm a personal shopper so I got this to help with the obscene amount of bags I have to carry you on a regular basis. I am so glad I did because they make the amount of trips I need to take one. If it fits in a bag it goes in on one trip, even if it's gallons of milk or cans of soup. Both of which I have done without any bag ripping or undue stress on me. I can't recommend this product enough!"—swtrbl555

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    18. A variety pack of 40 acne patches made with tea tree and calendula oil, because we've all woken up with a painful hello from a pimple! If you want to help speed up the healing process, place this on before bed and — BAM — pus and oil will be drawn out, and inflammation will go down by morning.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The amount of gunk this took out of my pores AFTER washing and exfoliating my face is literally crazy! I have very oily skin and acne (cystic and 'normal' acne). Also works great on popped pimples. Sucks all the crap out!"—Amanda

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50.

    19. A pet hair remover roller, because the second you start sneezing your head off from dust and dog hair you'll be so glad to have this handy to save the day (and your nose).

    amazon.com

    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-lb. 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

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    20. A DivaCup so your time of the month doesn't have to bleed through your wallet! Every time you use the same cup over and over and realize how much $$ you're saving on tampons and pads you'll be the most glad you've been on your period ever!

    Diva Cup

    Just remember to wash the DivaCup before you insert and after you remove it with DivaWash or warm water and a mild, unscented, and water-based (oil-free) soap. And empty and wash at least twice a day (a minimum of every 12 hours).

    Promising review: "I've been using this cup exclusively for five years and I will never, ever go back to conventional feminine hygiene products. With the cup, there's no 'period smell.' There's no swampy feeling or leaks. My cramps have lessened. And after 60 periods it still works perfectly, so it has saved me sooo much money." —Rachel

    Get it from Amazon for $24.05.

    21. A stainless steel tongue scraper to help rid your mouth of the odor that sticks to your tongue after a delicious meal or three. Thank goodness you have this, otherwise the date you have later might, well, stink!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Oh my god I need everyone to know this tongue scraper is LIFE CHANGING! The past few months I’ve noticed a weird white/grayish look to my tongue and have had bad breath which I’ve tried everything to control. I saw this on BuzzFeed and figured, why not give it a try. Literally the first time I used it, I could see such a major difference. Not to be too gross but like holy hell I could visibly witness all the gunk being removed from my tongue. I couldn’t look away. The next morning I could tell that it worked. I had ZERO bad breath and my mouth wasn’t so dry. This product truly is life changing. And so easy to use. You just hold the cleaner with either one hand or both and just gently scrape your tongue. It’s painless and super user friendly. 10/10 recommend." —Katelyn Foehner

    Get it from Amazon for $6.69.

    22. A bottle of Poo-pourri, a before-you-go bathroom spray, to keep your loo from smelling like #2. I don't know about you, but I am always thankful when I see one of these in a bathroom! Now you AND your guests can be glad you have one too.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This stuff is a must if you are a human who goes to the bathroom. I even take it with me to public restrooms because you never know what smell is lurking in the air on the other side of the stall door. THIS IS A MUST, I TELL YOU! A MUST!" —Nina

    Get an eight-ounce bottle from Amazon for $18.19 (available in 20 scents and seven sizes).

    23. O'Keefe's Working Hands cream, because there's nothing like super dry and irritated hands to make you thankful that moisturizer exists and that you bought some.

    amazon.com

    Especially because winter is around the corner people!!!

    Promising review: "This past winter was really tough on my hands, I had my fingers wrapped in Bandaids almost all winter. As soon as I started using this I could tell the difference almost right away. One week is all it took of daily use to get rid of the cracks. No more pain when I had to use my fingers (how can you not?) It definitely feels different that most hand creams, I guess that is why it works. It feels like you have had a paraffin treatment . It is the only cream that has worked for me, and now I am buying the four packs. Use it everyday just to make sure, I never had a problem like I did this past winter."—B

    Get a 3.4-ounce jar from Amazon for $6.49.

    24. A wine vacuum sealer for anyone who likes to enjoy a glass of wine with dinner and doesn't want to spoil the whole bottle. Drink more, save more!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My wife loves red wine. I don't. We're also poor. This means that when we open a bottle, she's had to do one of two things. 1) Drink it all at once or 2) Leave it open. The cheap stuff we buy goes bad pretty darn fast. This was a nice cheap vacuum that worked well and held a seal on a variety of sized bottles. My wife can enjoy a glass a day all week and not feel guilty about it going bad. I won't say that it's saved my marriage or anything like that, but it's nice little addition to our kitchen." —john

    Get it from Amazon for $11.89 (available in three colors).

    25. A fabric defuzzer to make all of your run-down sweaters, throw pillows, and furniture look like they just came from the store all without having to spend tons of $$$ on repairs.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Hi, I’m obsessed. I can’t stop. I should send this back. I’ve started asking if my neighbors need anything de-pilled. I’m going to buy one of these for everyone in my life. Everyone needs to own this. Take it away from me." —Sydney

    Get it from Amazon for $11.
