    34 Products That Deserve An Award For Working So Well

    And the winner is...everything on this list, TBH.

    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 universal dust cleaning gel that'll get to those nearly impossible-to-reach nooks and crannies in your keyboard, car vents, printer, and other appliances. It's weirdly fun to use, has a pleasant lemony smell, and is nonstick so you won't have any gooey residue left behind!

    It's made of biodegradable material, and you can use it again and again until the color turns dark! That's when you know it's time for a replacement. Also, don't wash the cleaning gel in water.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical at first. Was afraid my keyboard would be all gummed up with yellow slime! The opposite happened; it cleaned it as good as new. Got all those dog hairs between the keys! No smell lingering on keyboard or my hands. No sign I even used it except a clean keyboard. Kind of fun to play with. Squeeze it between your fingers! LOL. My next task for it will be those dust return air vents on our heating system and my dusty window blinds. This stuff works and I highly recommend!" —ZZZZZZ

    Get it from Amazon for $9.77.

    2. Some flat, wireless sleep headphones because trying to sleep with regular earbuds in is all fun and games until you roll over on your side. With these, you can stream audio via Bluetooth, block out external sound, and sleep much more comfortably than with tiny pieces of plastic pressing into your ears and tumbling out every time you change positions.

    Promising review: "I’ve used these almost every day of quarantine to drown out the sound of upstairs neighbors. I wouldn’t compare the sound quality to other brands but the design is perfect for sleeping, exercise, cleaning, and every day wear." —Demi Boyd

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    3. Some Avarelle tea tree and calendula oil-infused pimple patches that actually help reduce acne overnight by drawing out pus trapped under the skin. You can even see all of the gunk these patches pull out, so you know they're working.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are incredible! I was totally skeptical about acne patches in general. I ordered a few different brands, and these by Avarelle are by far the superior choice! They are super thin and nearly invisible. The patches create a super tight seal that doesn't budge even during sleep — they don't peel off easy, but they don't harm sensitive skin, either. AND THEY WORK! It's amazing to see all the gunk these things suck out. Totally reduces acne overnight or, at the very least, reduces pimples to barely perceptible! Would recommend!" —Amanda L. Purnell

    Get 40 patches from Amazon for $5.78.

    4. A pack of all-natural bottle cleaning tablets to get rid of those stains, smells, and tastes making you wonder if it's time for a new thermos. *SPOILER ALERT* It's probably not! But it is time for these tablets to get in there and do the hard cleaning for you — no scrubbing or extra effort required on your part!

    These are biodegradable and odor-free.

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. A bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. 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

    5. An essential oil migraine stick that'll help relieve the pain from migraines and headaches that love to show up just in time to spoil your day.

    amazon.com, BuzzFeed / Via Katy Herman

    Promising review: "Very impressed with this product, and honestly I didn't think I would be. As a lifelong migraine/headache sufferer, not a whole lot has worked for me other than prescription meds-which I really don't like to take too often but need to because my headaches are incapacitating most of the time. I recently used the roll-on and within 10–15 minutes my headache was gone. It started to come back last night before bed, and used it again and again it took it away. Now, I knew it wasn't going to be a migraine headache — they feel different when they come on, but for a regular headache this worked wonderfully! I still might use the prescription for a migraine, probably in conjunction with this, as it really is soothing and nice." —carrie

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    6. A Cat Dancer toy no one expects their cats to love as much as they inexplicably do.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Honestly, I could spend all day LOLing at the review photos.

    Promising review: "This little toy is a miracle! Was skeptical at first since it’s such a simple design but my cat (who usually only plays for a couple of minutes) was obsessed with this toy from the moment I opened the package. Even more, he won’t let it out of his sight and brings it to me so he can play some more. Will be buying a lot more of these in the future!" —Amcooper2006

    Get it from Amazon for $2.49.

    7. An oven cleaner that'll dissolve the stubborn stains and gunk building up so you can easily wipe it clean without scraping or harsh scrubbing.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product is amazing. I have tried the regular strength Easy-Off and was disappointed so when I came across this I was skeptical, but after reading the views, I decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did; this did wonders for my oven. Cleaned all the stuck-on spots that other cleaners missed with ease. I let it sit for two hours and tested a small section and I was pleased with the results so far so i let it sit overnight and almost all of it came off with no problem. I did have to scrub some off but not like other products. This is a lifesaver." —trisha skubisz

    Get it from Amazon for $6.41.

    8. A Revlon hot air brush to simplify your routine using special vents that allow air to flow, so hair dries faster without damaging. It's much quicker and easier than using a dryer, flat iron, or curling iron, and the results will make you feel like you just came from the salon!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Just wow! I was skeptical at first. I wish I would have bought this sooner! After showering I get all the moisture I can out of my hair. And leave it to kind of air dry while I’m getting ready, having coffee, or whatever I’m doing that morning. It takes me about seven minutes to dry my hair if that! I have very thick naturally curly hair. It’s is a fabulous tool to have in your arsenal! May be the only one I have to use. No flat iron needed as of yet! Would buy again in a heartbeat!" —D.K

    Get it from Amazon for $41.88+ (available in five colors).

    9. An easy-to-use jewelry-cleaning pen that'll make your jewels sparkle and shine like the day they were born.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "If I could give this 10 stars I would! I'm a fanatic when it comes to keeping my jewelry clean, especially my wedding set. I tried this product on my diamonds, Swarovski crystals, and Brighton jewelry, and the results are nothing less than amazing! This restored one of my Swarovski rings that I had not worn in years due to the cloudy color to a sparkling brilliance just like the first day I bought it! I cannot recommend this product enough! I just ordered additional wands so I don't run out! Home run Amazon!" —Kristina B.

    10. An avocado slicer to make it soooo much easier split your avo, remove the pit, and get perfectly even slices without a messy, potentially dangerous struggle with a knife.

    amazon.com

    It might even help you avoid a trip to the emergency room with a case of "avocado hand," which Healthline says "resembles a stab wound" — YIKES.

    Promising review: "Makes preparing guacamole an easier, less messy task. I use it frequently and it makes preparation of avocados much less work and effort. Reduces mess on my hands, on counters, etc. It also slices avocados nicely for inclusion in sandwiches. The tool makes for nice, even slices for presentation, too, when I serve avocados plain. Avocados are good for you so anything to make them easier to prepare and serve is a win. I enjoy giving this product as a gift. Anything that promotes good health is a thoughtful gift." —Hippie Chick

    Promising millenial review: "I'm a millennial and can't live without my avocado toast a few times weekly. Thank goodness for this little gadget that is literally getting me through this quarantine. #bravocado!" —Alissa Nemnich

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    11. A FURemover squeegee broom that reviewers say attracts hair like a magnet. All that fur and fuzz hiding deep in your carpet is no match for this thing, and while pet hair is the focus, it'll do an impressive job cleaning up water, dirt, and dust too.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I really didn’t expect this to work. We’ve had short-haired cats for years and I had a rubber upholstery brush that never seemed to do anything. Well, we recently got a dog — a black Great Pyrenees mix. There is fur everywhere. Our downstairs is all hard flooring with area rugs and I hate lugging my Shark vacuum every couple of days but just daily sweeping with a regular broom wasn’t cutting it. I decided to take a chance on this broom and I am so happy I did. It takes some elbow grease but it gets the fur off the area rug in my living room... Not only is it great for getting the fur off rugs, but it’s also even better on the hard floors. My regular broom catches some of the hair (which I then have to clean off by hand) but much of it just swirls away in the breeze the sweeping creates. This broom actually collects even the tiny stray hairs and deposits them in the dust pile without me having to get my hands dirty (literally)." —Sarah R.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98.

    12. A Mr. Coffee mug warmer so your hot, life-giving coffee stays the perfect temperature from the first sip to the last — no matter how long it takes you to drink it!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This device is a must for me. The temperature for the last few days has been about 16 degrees where I am, and there's nothing better than warming up with a hot cup of coffee or tea in the afternoon. Normally, the coffee cools down to room temperature within a few minutes, but with the Mr. Coffee Mug warmer, my coffee stays around 118 degrees for hours (I did testing with an IR thermometer). I was pleasantly surprised considering how cheap this was. Make sure to put the mug on the warmer as soon as your drink is made to maintain the temperature and you'll be set." —Tess Stickles

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    13. An amazing drill brush kit to make your surfaces look brand-new — without any scrubbing on your part! Just attach the brush head to your drill, turn it on, and watch all of that grime disappear so fast and easily, you'll think it's magic.

    amazon.com

    Need a drill? Here's one.

    Promising review: "Bought these on a whim and was skeptical if they would really help, but man am I glad I did! They made cleaning our glass shower door and fiberglass shower a breeze! Don't really want to admit how long it had been between cleanings, but the shower shined like it never had before (even with using tough elbow grease and a standard bristle brush). No issues with the brushes leaving marks, but definitely want to err on the side of caution on how long you stay in a spot. Used the large flat circular brush for the door and walls, and the round toilet bowl type brush worked great in the corners and on fixtures." —Molly

    Get a set of three brush heads from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in soft, medium, stiff, and ultra-stiff bristles).

    14. Some gentle, but effective AsaVea Teeth Whitening Pens that'll give you quick results with just a minute of daily use. Reviewers say they don't cause sensitivity, and they have a pleasant mint flavor that'll make your mouth feel fresh and clean.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Due to prior experiences with other whitening strips, I always deal with tooth sensitivity even after the first use. Naturally now, I only use this pen every other day thinking I was going to deal with the same issue and surprisingly I don't. I actually really like the way it whitens my teeth and love the fact that I'm not dealing with any tooth sensitivity pains." —Claudia Garcia

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $19.99.

    15. A garbage disposal cleaner – it requires basically zero effort from you while it rids your sink of that foul smell you thought would never go away. Plus, it's fun to watch as it bubbles and fizzes its way through the grease and grime.

    youtube.com

    Here's what you do: Run some hot water, pop one of the packets in your disposer, let it foam, then wait for the foam to fully disappear. Garbage disposer = clean and ickiness-free.

    Promising review: "Works like a charm! These are pretty cool! I was a little skeptical but I followed the easy-to-use directions and it worked just like the product said it would. Foamed up and cleaned the drain!! Smell removed!!" —Jennifer K

    Get two packs of four from Amazon for $10.53.

    16. Some streak-free anti-fog spray to keep your eyeglasses, sunglasses, face shields, car windows, and more from constantly getting all cloudy and fogged up.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this six weeks ago and it’s definitely an awesome product. My glasses always fogged up going inside, summer or winter. This eliminates that problem. Also since COVID, wearing masks really creates condensation on my glasses. I use it every few days and the problem is solved. Great product!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.55+ (available in three sizes).

    17. Some washing machine cleaning tablets you just have to run through a cycle to clean your machine and get rid of all the gross stuff making your clothes smell funky even after they come out of the wash.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I purchased with skepticism, but after using them I am pleasantly surprised. I LOVE this product!! Our laundry used to come out smelling WORSE than before I washed it. I thought I needed to buy a new washing machine. NO!!! I used two tabs initially (two different wash cycles), then use one a month for maintenance. My clothes always come out smelling fresh and clean! What a miracle, money-saving product. Only wish I’d known about them sooner!" —Ashley

    Get a box of six tablets from Amazon for $11.98.

    18. A bath overflow drain cover so you can actually enjoy a relaxing bath in your shallow tub. This'll give you few extra inches of toasty water, without causing your overflow drain to make that obnoxious gulping sound that is the opposite of relaxing.

    Amazon

    I frantically bought this thing after realizing that I couldn't fill my tub up very far without the overflow drain deciding that it was totally appropriate to drown out my ambient bath time playlist with its relentless slurping, and I have to say, it has been a game-changer! For anyone worried that it'll cause your tub to overflow, know that it has a hole at the top of the cover that will allow the overflow drain to still do its job if the water accidentally gets higher than the cover.

    Promising review: "I have a high-stress job, and I've started taking baths as a way to unwind. However, it never seemed like I could keep enough water in the tub to really enjoy it. This little thing makes a HUGE difference!! I get at least an extra 3 inches of water and it is great." —Hyacinthe Snyder

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in four colors).

    19. A jar of O'Keeffe's hand cream for anyone who is tired of their hands cracking and bleeding every winter.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Does this product need another 5-star review? Nope. But I had to. This is truly a miracle product!! I have the driest skin in the winter. To the point where I will look down at my hands to notice they are bleeding from all the various cracks. This product made a major difference after just one using! Here I am weeks later, and my hands have no cracks, look younger, and are no longer red. Can O'Keeffe's fix potholes too!?!" —P. Neuber

    Get a 3.4-ounce jar from Amazon for $7.60.

    20. A minimalist silverware tray that'll give you wayyyy more drawer space, keep your silverware nicely organized, and make emptying the dishwasher a lot easier.

    Amazon

    It also comes in a version just for knives and one for kitchen utensils and gadgets.

    Promising review: "I thought this would be handy, and help with space management in a small apartment. It turned out to be absolutely perfect. It keeps the silverware clean, and stores a lot in a very small space. I love it. I got two, because I inherited my grandmothers silverware, so there are two types of forks and two types of spoons, and I wanted things separate and organized. Two organizers fit side-by-side in a standard apartment drawer. After getting these, I picked up the knife organizer, and it’s just as handy and useful." —Jerimi

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

    21. A fast-acting carpet spot-removing spray to remove those stains you thought you'd never be able to get rid of.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is AMAZING! I was a little skeptical because I have some carpet stains I’ve let sit for a while because I didn’t have any cleaner at the time of the accident. The accidents have included coffee spills and poorly cleaned cat barf stains. I ordered this because I didn’t want to spend the money on a carpet cleaning service plus you have to be out of your house too long. This stuff was INCREDIBLE. You just spray a concentrated amount and then scrub the stain away. It worked in every single stain I had and was super quick and easy. 100% recommend if you need a good spot cleaner!" —Kimberly

    Get it from Amazon for $10.92.

    22. A portable bug bite suction tool that helps reduce itching and swelling from a mosquito, bee, or wasp sting by literally SUCKING the venom out of your skin.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Note that the suction can be pretty strong, so use caution and try a small amount of suction first before working 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 it from Amazon for $9.95+ (available in two colors).

    23. A septic safe jetted tub cleaner so you can actually enjoy using your tub instead of feeling like you're cooking in a bacteria soup.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Works better than anything else we have tried on our six-foot jetted hot tub. We have well water with lots of minerals. Oh Yuk gets the crud out fast and rinses easy. Been using it for three years and nothing else comes close." —Linda

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    24. A conveniently-sized handheld knife sharpener to make easy and quick work of keeping your most-used kitchen utensils sharp and ready to slice and dice.

    Promising review: "I gotta say this is the best sharpener I ever bought in my whole life. I got it today and brought it to work. I work at a Japanese restaurant as a sushi chef and I sharpened it at work and, wow, my knife was as sharp as a samurai sword! Even my coworkers were surprised and asked me to order one for them. Thanks for the product ! Now I don't have to use the stone or sharpen rod that much anymore." —Rodrigo

    25. A super comfy memory foam seat cushion designed to help relieve back pain and sciatica, promote good posture, and help reduce pressure on the tailbone — especially if you spend most of your day in an office chair, car, or other sitting position.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have an active sciatic nerve and it's pinched because of my job where I need to sit for hours together. I had tried everything from standing up, using three different cushions, including that purple or egg seater thingie. Nothing worked. Particularly that egg seater is a hogwash — just waste of money. Every night, I had to apply ice packs, medicinal patches. Then I saw ComfiLife, read the reviews and finally decided to buy one. I have been using this for few months now. Here is my experience: 1. The gel takes the ideal shape in such a way it doesn't put pressure on the nerve. I don't know if it is scientific but personally I DON'T feel like Im sitting on a rock! 2. At the same time, its not saggy or goes flat like that egg thingie, when you sit on this. 3. I don't know if anyone else felt it, I get this cool icy feel on the same sciatic nerve when I sit on this cushion, say, for an hour!! 4. I have sat on it for four hours without a break and I don't have the same pain I used to have! 5. The color of the cushion cover is ideal and doesn't look dirty at all. And its removable!! Summary: Yes, you can sit for eight hours on this cushion and not writhe in pain later. Yes, this is worth the money to spend. And within a week, you will figure out if it works for you. Finally, I'm gonna get two more for my office and my car." —Balaji V

    26. Some wood polish and conditioner with beeswax and orange oil that'll impressively hide those dings and scratches making your floors and furniture look old and dingy.

    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 that jumped up and scratched places. We also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were. Several other areas were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magical eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let it sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand-new. I'm buying a couple more so we can finish our cabinets and wood paneling. We're so glad we found this product." —Kris

    27. An easy-to-install under-door seal to keep bugs, rodents, and cold air from sneaking into your home.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this because bugs were starting to get into the house and in order to fix what was wrong with the door we would have had to take the door off the hinges. We really wanted an easy fix since we will be putting in a new door come spring. My husband put this on and it has worked great. Not only are the bugs staying out but the extra noise and cold coming in are no longer a problem. I would definitely recommend this." —Rose E. Archambault

    28. Some cable clip organizers you can easily attach to any surface to keep your cords conveniently in place. Now you can just reach over to your nightstand to charge your phone instead of struggling to dig around on the floor while half of your body is still in bed.

    Promising review: "It was always a pain to reach down the side of my bed to reach my chargers, not to mention the wad of cables I’d have to sift through just to charge my phone. I finally searched for a solution and came across these. They’re great! They’re really easy to stick on and they stay in place. I haven’t had an issue of them falling off. Whenever I need to charge a device they’re right next to me, easy to reach and untangled. I definitely recommend!" —Nelis Perez

    Amazon

    Promising review: "In my drunken stupor, I purchased these thinking were ben wa balls. Boy was I wrong. But I'm so happy with my purchase because these keep my produce fresher for much longer than normal.

    Promising review: "When we moved into our new place the shower doors looked like they had never been cleaned before. I tried at least 10 different products and methods to remove the hard water spots but nothing even made a dent. Bio Clean, however, was like a magic eraser! I scrubbed each door for about 10 minutes and it was incredible! I’ve never written a cleaning product review before but this one is worth every penny." —Shane B

    32. A rapid egg cooker that can make hard-boiled, soft-boiled, poached, and scrambled eggs in just minutes so you don't have to!

    Amazon

    It can even make an omelet if you wanna feel fancy without the extra effort.

    Promising review: "This thing is NO JOKE the easiest thing I've ever used in my life. Pretty sure it's idiot-proof. And I'm an idiot in the kitchen. I love hard-boiled eggs, but I'm the kind of cooking-illiterate person who can't even boil water right. So I bought this puppy, read the directions carefully, got six eggs, and in 15 minutes, the buzzer went off and VOILA! Hard-boiled eggs! I put them all in a bowl of ice water right after the buzzer went off, just for a minute or two (That was a tip in the instructions). That really made the shells come off easily. In one piece even! It was a joy to make these! They were perfectly cooked, nice and yellow in the centers, tasted awesome. I'm gonna make a bunch more and use them as quick snacks. This appliance is so great and cheap! I couldn't believe how well it worked. It's really small and all the pieces are plastic or metal, but it works like a charm, so who cares! A+++++ Highly recommended." —Emily

    33. A pack of dishwasher-cleaning tablets you should try before giving up on your machine altogether. If you're dishes are coming out of the wash still dirty, or you're noticing an unpleasant odor, these might be all you need to fix the problem!

    Reviewer photo showing a cup and silverware before and after using the cleaning tablets
    amazon.com

    These tablets are designed to penetrate, dissolve, and remove odor-causing residue that accumulates inside your dishwasher over time, as well as remove lime and mineral build-up. Using Affresh tablets once a month can prolong the life of your dishwasher and make it more effective at doing its job: cleaning your dishes.

    Promising review: "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 build up 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 build up 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, or build up around the door seals. I'm going to be buying Affresh from now on, and hopefully it will extend the life of my dishwasher." —Martoune

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    34. And finally, a pumice stone that makes it super easy to keep the inside of your toilet sparkling and free of gross stains that usually take way more elbow grease to remove.

    amazon.com, amazon.com
