    1. A pumice cleaning stone reviewers repeatedly call magic, and once you see the results, you will understand why. Those rings you've had around the toilet in your basement for years will finally disappear.

    Promising review: "I’m doing a happy dance right now! My toilets have had mineral rings in the bowls from well water since we bought our house five years ago. During those five years, I have purchased NUMEROUS products to try to remove the rings. Every single one failed. I had come to terms with the idea that if I wanted pristine looking crappers, I was going to need to replace them. Three of them. Ugh! I ordered the pumice cleaning stone as a last ditch attempt. Received it today, and immediately went to town. My extreme enthusiasm for scrubbing johns was actually a bit odd, but I was feeling optimistic. Turns out I had reason to. THIS PRODUCT IS AMAZING!!! SO amazing, it actually inspired me to take a picture of my TOILET!!!! My hoppers are saved!!!!! Seriously, the rings are COMPLETELY GONE. If I could give 10 stars, I would." —Sassyscribbler

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    2. A nontoxic oven cleaning kit that will restore your oven to first-bought freshness. The plant-based ingredients are strong enough to give your oven a deep clean without any toxic fumes.

    Everneat is a small business in Fairfield, Connecticut specializing in cleaning products.

    This kit contains an oven scrub and metallic scrubber. All the products are plant-based, vegan, cruelty-free, and refillable/reusable. 

    Promising review: "This product is amazing. I use it for cleaning my oven, my glass cooktop and my porcelain sink. It gets those marks in my porcelain out very nicely! I'm sure it would work great in the toilet too, I just have yet to try it. I've bought this product twice now. They've rebranded into it looking quite sleek. The first time I ordered the plastic jar and the lid was near impossible to get off. This time I ordered the glass and it is much nicer. I use a heavy amount of product and this lasted me approximately three months! Worth it!" —Kelly L.

    Get it from Everneat on Etsy for $25.99 (available in three scents).

    3. An ear treatment to help prevent inflammation and irritation in your poor pet's ears. It's designed to ease existing ear infections and prevent future ones caused by a variety of fungus and bacteria.

    If you do suspect your pet has an infection, definitely still reach out to your vet for professional advice!

    Promising review: "My dog has persistent ear infections and the popular vet prescribed medication made him loose most of his hearing. When yet another ear infection came along I thought I’d give this a try. It worked way better than the other medicine and he did not loose any more of his hearing. I would apply it daily in the morning inside his ear and wipe out his ears in the evening with a gauze with a tiny bit of this stuff on it. Lots of gunk would come out! After a week his ear infection went away. He tolerated the application really well too because it’s goopy and went down smoothly into his ear. Definitely recommend!!" —Anabanana

    Get it from Amazon for $23.79+ (available in two sizes).

    4. A foot file just like the one they use at nail salons (except wayyyy more affordable than a full-on pedicure). Now you can remove your calluses and cracked skin from the comfort of your own home.

    Promising review: "I tried for months to get rid of deep cracks on my left heel. I used salves, moisturizing socks, those viral peeling foot masks, lotions, soaks, pumice stones, that old egg shaped foot grater thing. Stuff helped a little, for sure. They lessened the cracks. But those cracks were deep. So I got this and it worked. It took a couple of times using it after showering, and then using one of the salves and covering with socks overnight. And my cracks are gone. Not just lessened, they are GONE. I maintain my heels now with this every couple days because dry skin happens on heels, and this is easy to use. The handle is long enough to reach, and right now I'm eight months pregnant and reaching anything is a struggle so that's saying something. It's easy to clean, just rinse that foot parmesan off and hang it to dry. This might be my favorite Amazon purchase so far. And I buy everything on here." —Lindsey S.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    5. A box of wart-removing pads so you can finally remove that bump that has been tormenting you. All you have to do is apply the self-adhering bandage and prepare to rid yourself of the wart *forever*. 

    Promising review: "I had a hideous wart on one of my left toes that just wouldn't go away. I tried cutting it off and applying a peeling solution on it, but it came coming back with a vengeance. It was a cause of irritation and embarrassment that I couldn't even wear slides or flip-flops over the summer. Until I found this product. I checked CVS, Rite Aid, & Target, and this was still the best priced product, so I bought a box to try. Without even a month of using these medicated pads, the wart is gone! I have no complaints about the adhesion cuz it was completely intact after 48 hours of putting it on, despite getting them wet a lot (I shower twice a day). Within a week of using these, the tough top of the wart started to peel off with the medicated pad. I decided to continue using the medicated pad to ensure the roots of the wart goes away as well. Now, there are NO traces of the wart, at all! I am super happy about this product and recommend it to whoever needs to get rid of an embarrassing wart." —Elaine C.

    Get 14 pads from Amazon for $6.96+ (available in five varieties).

    6. A mold and mildew removal gel that you simply layer on, leave for a few hours, and wipe clean. Yes, that means NO SCRUBBING.

    Promising review: "The caulking in my shower had turned black with mold. I had been too sick to take care of things like that for over a year. I used this and within one application it is bright, shiny, white again! If this hadn’t worked, I was planning to remove all the caulking and start over. This saved me hours of work. There are some things that make you satisfied every time you look at it. This is one of them." —Planetary Drive

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    7. An immunity-boosting allergy supplement to help your pup sooth their itchy skin. These soft chews taste great so your doggo wont even know they're getting probiotics and nutrients to help improve immune function, aid digestion, promote healthy skin, and add shine back to their coat.

    Promising review: "Our GSD started having skin issues when we moved to TX. We changed foods. We gave baths. We tried fish oils. We tried allergy meds. We tried sprays. We tried creams. We went down the whole flea and pest road. Treated for everything. Turns out, poor pup is allergic to Texas. His beautiful coat turn dull and rough and thin from all the scratching. We found the right food, he started improving. Then we tried the Zesty Paw Bites. Within three days, his coat was softer. After a week, he wasn't itching all the time. We're almost a month in, his coat is coming back in, his fur is soft, he's about 90% less itchy. He's happy again. and he absolutely loves the treats. 100% will repurchase for the foreseeable future." —Heather P.

    Get them from Amazon for $26.07+ (available in two sizes and four variations, including puppy and senior).

    8. A snaking tool that will make it ~incredibly~ obvious why your tub is taking forever to drain. Fair warning: if this is the first time you're even attempting to unclog your drain, prepared to be disgusted (and maybe even kinda impressed?).

    Promising review: "Works so well I might not eat for days. I live in an apartment complex and the maintenance people are pretty strict about not using drain cleaning chemicals but rather calling them to unclog a slow-draining bathtub or sink. However, I have pretty long hair and I'm certain that the maintenance people don't get paid well enough to go up against the horror that's been building up in my bathtub drain over the past several years. When I got the Vastar snake drain cleaner I went straight to work. No instructions needed, the concept is pretty simple: You grasp the tool with the end that's a handle, push the pointy end down the drain, and the jagged part catches on the nest of hair that's swirled its way around your plumbing. I didn't even get the thing 3 inches down before it was getting stuck on clumps of hair and built-up gunk. I gagged my way through getting all nausea-inducing blockage lurking in my bathtub's drainpipe. It's now clear to me why this is a three-pack...there was simply no way I was going to be cleaning off the plastic tool and reusing it. Very happy with this product, glad it comes in a pack." —K.

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $5+ (available in two lengths).

    9. Acne patches so you can stop spending your time picking at every zit you see. Just apply a patch and watch it flatten out the pimple, reduce redness, and pull out allllll the gunk.

    Promising review: "This has been amazing. I bought it for my daughter and she shared it with her boyfriend. They are both under 20. They experienced results overnight, reducing a painful red pimple starting. I will continue to buy these for the kids because the results were hands-down amazing. And my daughter has very sensitive skin." —Tonja S.

    10. A pack of dishwasher cleaning tablets that clean the nasty you can see, but also the *nasty* you can't see. Just place one where you would put a normal dishwashing pod, and marvel at the results.

    Promising review: "This stuff is the real deal. We have had multiple service calls to the house for this dishwasher — no help at all. Cleaned the filter, tried running the water to heat it first… nothing worked. Dishes were still coming out dirty and smelly. We were prepared to give up and replace our dishwasher. As a last ditch effort, I ordered the Affresh pods, and used two of ‘em. Hallelujah!!! Finally, dishes are coming out clean again. These pods saved me THOUSANDS! So simple and easy to use, I could not be happier." —M

    Get a pack of six tablets from Amazon for $8.99.

    11. Bottle-cleaning tablets so your emotional support water bottle you've been using every day for the past year (…without washing…) can be restored back to its freshly purchased state that is *actually* safe to drink out of.

    Promising review: "I admit I was skeptical that this would work on my deeply coffee stained, stainless steel coffee tumblers. Usually I have to boil hot water and use vinegar and dishwashing liquid in them and let them sit overnight to get them clean. So I was definitely skeptical how one small tablet with warm water for 20 minutes was going to get them sparkling. The truth of the matter actually did a killer job! I popped one tablet in the bottom of each clean tumbler. Then, I added hot water that I had boiled on the stove (as an added benefit) and left them uncovered for 20 mins. Halfway through I stirred the water with a bottle brush and then let it sit for the remaining time. Before rinsing them out, I used a bottle brush again and then rinsed. OMG! SPARKLING LIKE NEW!!! SIMPLE, FAST & EASY. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!" —Bliss Om

    Get a pack of 12 tablets from Amazon for $8 (also available in 36- or 78-pack).

    12. A reviewer-beloved anti-dandruff shampoo clinically proven to clear up existing dandruff and itchiness (from the first use), and also to help you remain flake-free and shiny.

    Promising review: "MIRACLE PRODUCT! If you have a flaky scalp from dandruff, BUY THIS. I was about to go to the dermatologist if this stuff didn’t work. Thank goodness I saved myself hundreds of dollars by giving this product a shot. I used it four of five times (over a month) and it cleared my scalp almost completely. One more use and my scalp will be 120% healed! This stuff blew my mind. Totally worth it." —chris

    Get it from Amazon for $11.88+ (available in two sizes).

    13. A miracle carpet cleaning solution you can put into the carpet cleaner machine you already own and get up those stains that have been haunting you for the past two years. This stuff is all natural, so you don't have to worry about any harsh chemicals making your kids or pets sick.

    Sunny & Honey is a family-run small business that creates cleaning products, especially for homes with furry friends.

    Promising reviewing: "I have a dog and two young boys, and I’m constantly cleaning the rug and sofa. I have tried other name-brand cleaning solutions, vinegar solutions, resolve, and nothing works as good as this. All the other ones have a weird smell that almost just mixes with the bad smells and makes it worse. This has a very clean and fresh scent and actually removes the odors!!!! Works well on carpet, rugs, and sofa upholstery. I use it in my upright carpet cleaner and small portable carpet cleaner. The best!" —momj

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in two sizes).

    14. Or if you don't have a carpet cleaning machine, a stain and odor eliminator to clean up those tough messes you've already used sooo many products on. Not only will this stuff get rid of the stain, but it will get rid of the smell…pet stains can be STANKY, iykyk.

    Rocco & Roxie Supply Co. is a family-owned small business named after the family's pets Rocco, a Labradoodle, and Roxie, a former shelter tabby cat. They make a variety of pet supplies, including cleaners, treats, grooming tools, accessories, and toys.

    Promising review: "I have an elderly dog who has occasional accidents and a cat with chronic bladder issues. Without this product, I’m pretty sure I would’ve burned down the house. On fresh accidents, it works with just one treatment. It removes the stains, and more importantly, it completely removes the odors. On older, setting stains, it completely removes stains and odors after several repeat treatments. I’ve tried so many products over the years. Hands-down, this is the best." —SR Kelly

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97+ (available in two sizes).

    15. A liquid tartar remover that will help clean your doggo's teeth, without the risk of the guilt that comes from seeing their sad puppy eyes when you try to come near them with a toothbrush. With this, all you have to do is add it to their water and you'll stop gagging whenever they hit you with a breeze of hot doggie breath.

    Note: this shouldn't be a total replacement for brushing their teeth to maintain the best hygiene. 

    Promising review: "I have a small dog who has always had bad teeth and despite years of (expensive) professional cleanings, she had to have 11 teeth extracted. I saw this in my recommendations and assumed that like the millions of (expensive!) products we’ve tried, it would do nothing and she would hate it. But there were so many customer photos I thought I may as well try this too. My mind is blown…It’s only been a couple of weeks and her teeth are visibly cleaner! Substantially! Not only that, but she even seems to like the flavor of her minty water. I went to refill her water bowl after a hike today and only after I opened the bottle did she come to me and happily slurp down water! She usually has to be cajoled into drinking even after the hottest days (she is cuter than she is bright) so this is saying something! Completely recommend :)" —Caroline

    Get it from Amazon for $8.41+ (available in three sizes and three flavors).

    16. A jetted tub cleaner because idk if you've heard, but those jets can get, never-use-a-shared-tub disgusting. But unfortunately, that gunk doesn't stay only in the hotel tubs; it can build up in your tub at home. Clean out those jets, and stop being afraid of using your tub to its full potential.

    Promising review: "We bought a house with a jetted tub. I had anxiety about using the tub because I didn’t know what kind of germs and funk were in the jets. I ordered Oh Yuk before we even closed escrow. And when escrow did close, I got my keys and immediately used Oh Yuk in the tub. The junk that came out was soo gross! I ran it four times and nownthe tub jets are spotless. It was great being able to take a bath and not worry about someone else’s dirt and funk in my bath water. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!" —Niki D.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.84.

    17. A stainless-steel tongue scraper designed to scrape away your bad breath, but reviewers have also found that it helped them experience flavors more intensely! Squeaky clean mouth AND more flavorful food? Sign me up!

    Promising review: "I hate brushing my tongue, I also hate having bad breath, decided to try a tongue scraper. I was skeptical about the claim that it doesn’t trigger the gag reflex but I gave it a try and it’s amazing. It doesn’t make me gag like brushing, it cleans my tongue way more effectively than brushing and the gunk doesn’t come back as fast. My breath smells better, things taste better and my mouth feels cleaner. I love this thing!" —Jo. K.

    Get two from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in four varieties).

    18. A tub of O'Keeffe's hand cream for repairing even the most cracked, damaged, or bleeding hands within days by creating a moisturizing, protective layer on your skin to prevent additional drying.

    the same reviewer's hand, which now looks moisturized, less red, less cracked, and less angry

    Promising review: "I bought this for my husband after reading other reviews. We have tried everything for my husband's very dry, cracked, rough hands. He works outside all year long on his days off and works in a really harsh environment for his job. He is constantly getting deep cracks that develop from use. I am not kidding you when I say this has made his hands as soft as mine! He was so surprised how well it worked the first time. He had me buy a second jar of it to leave at work. If you have extremely dry, hard-to-heal cracked hands get this lotion!!" —Andrea C.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48+ (also available in 2- or 12-pack).

    19. A pet hair cleaner that will find hair that you didn't even know existed. Prepare to be humbled — you may have just finished vacuuming your carpet, but trust me, this will pick up a lot more hair and it won't take 10 sheets of sticky paper to do it.

    I have two cats and I always tell people they don't really shed *that* much. Well, I guess I was proven wrong when my husband decided to buy this and we used it on our carpet. When I tell you we audibly gasped. We then decided to make it a game because it was honestly so funny how much hair was coming up even though we thought the house was clean 😩.

    Promising review: "I generally don’t write reviews, simply because most often I’m buying products with a ton of reviews anyway so mine wouldn’t really matter, but HOLY CANNOLI, I don’t care how many reviews this thing has, I’m FLOORED (pun intended). I vacuum almost daily with a cattle dog and a staffy in my house, and there’s always hair. I used this for the first time on my rug last night and I cannot BELIEVE how much hair this thing pulled up AND IT DIDN'T DAMAGE MY RUG. THIS THING IS AMAZING!!!! 100/10 stars!!" —Tabitha

    Get it on Amazon for $22.99.

    20. A foot peel mask designed to reveal a smoothness you haven't experienced since you learned to walk. Just wear the booties for an hour and watch layers of skin peel away (over the course of five to seven days).

    Promising review: "My feet were horrendous. Extremely dry and calloused. I had deep crevices on my heels that would be painful regardless if I used lotion or not. I decided to try this product after my daughter commented saying how bad my feet were. I was skeptical because I've used other products with little to no results. This product actually worked! My feet started peeling after the third day and kept peeling for the next six. I applied lotion everyday to keep the process rolling. My feet look so much better and it's really jumpstarted my care to my feet. You won't be sorry you tried this product!" —Amy
