    36 Things That'll Make You Wish You Had A Time Machine So You Could Go Back In Time And Buy Them Sooner

    Even if you (tragically) don't have access to a time machine, it's never too late to add these helpful products to your life.

    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 bleach-free, no-scrub WET & FORGET (!) weekly shower spray that could've saved you from having to use so much elbow grease every time you cleaned your shower.

    Before: a dirty shower floor; after: the clean shower floor
    Amazon

    Promising review: "This product will absolutely save you a trip to divorce court. My husband and I are both equal workers and equal earners — yet he refuses to clean bathrooms. This product is a godsend! I refuse to scrub 'his shower' but sprayed this product just once and it has made a 100% difference. The soap scum is gone, the hard water stains have vanished, and the dank smell has vacated. All without any scrubbing (or arguing), just after one use. If I could buy this product in bulk, I would. His bathroom shower hadn’t been cleaned in at least six months prior to using this product and it looks like we just moved in. Buy this now, and buy in bulk. It absolutely does everything it promises. My only complaint is the product’s lack of marketing/me not finding this sooner." —Carrie Larson

    Get it from Amazon for $17.97.

    2. A car seat gap filler so you can stop struggling to dig for your phone, keys, or anything else that tends to fall into the dreaded black hole between the seats.

    The gap filler between the seat and console
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I just don’t understand why I didn’t buy this sooner. It’s one of those things that you’re not really sure why you need it but once you have it, you can’t live without. It saved my poor arm from having to dig my keys, cellphone, pens, french fries, hair ties, you-name-it from between the seat gap. Seriously, it’s awesome." —Amazon Customer

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $22.99.

    3. A fabric defuzzer that might've saved some of your favorite tops you got rid of because they were covered in lint, pilling, and fuzz that seemed like it'd never come off. This'll remove all that stuff, making your fave pieces look good as new!

    amazon.com

    It has three settings for different fabric types, cord and cordless options, and a detachable fuzz collector for easy cleanup.

    Promising review: "I have thrown away so many of my favorite tops over the years because I could not get all the fuzzies off them. I tried this thing on one of my favorite shirts this morning and OMG it really works! It is easy to put the batteries in. I was able to operate it without even having to look at the instructions. I wish I bought this sooner. Off I go to mourn the loss of all my old favorite tops that this little gadget could have fixed!" —HD

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in five colors and two styles).

    4. Some shower steamers you'll wonder how you went so long without. Just place one in the corner of your shower to release calming fragrances while you unwind after a long day.

    The steamers next to their packaging
    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are the best shower steamers I've ever tried. Usually they aren't strong enough or they melt too quickly to even enjoy. They are also bigger than what you can buy at the store. Id say they are about a hockey puck size. One lasted my entire shower and still smelled amazing even after i was done. These are the best shower steamers hands-down. I would definitely buy these again." —Krista

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    5. A pack of shelf dividers so you can stop wincing every time you look at your clothes messily piled on top of each other.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are great! I wish I had found these sooner. My shelves in my closet are so organized. I love it and bought more to do my other closets too." —Wilson8869

    Get it from Amazon for $13.49+ (available in two colors).

    6. A beeswax wood polisher that might have made some past furniture replacements unnecessary. Next time, before you kick your scratched up coffee table to the curb and spend a bunch of $$$ on a new one, try this! It'll make all those dings and imperfections disappear like magic so your old things look brand new.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This Feed-N-Wax is magically wonderful for wood furniture and even my wood front door. It gave my 20-year-old pine finish bedroom furniture a nice sheen, pulled out the grain, and even covered up minor scratches along the bottom edges where the dog had gotten it over the years when rolling around on the floor. I used it on a 100-year-old china cabinet and it worked beautifully. On our wood front door that takes a beating in the the south Florida weather, it brought it back to life. I wish I found this stuff sooner." —Deborah Basso

    Get it from Amazon for $14.17.

    7. A variety pack of TRUFF sauces — featuring the Original, Hotter, and White TRUFF hot sauces — whose complex flavor will change the way you think about hot sauce forever.

    TRUFF, Jonathan Mazzei / BuzzFeed

    This stuff is excellent and really grows on you! The first time I tried it, I wasn't entirely sure how I felt, but by the end of the first week, I found myself reaching for it with almost every meal. While all three options have a lot of similarities, they each have their own distinct personality. At first, they were all a little creamier and almost...tomato-y (?) tasting than I expected. Then, I realized there was NO dairy or tomato present at all, but a thickness and slight sweetness almost reminiscent of red bell peppers. The truffle flavor is present but subtle, and the sauce has a solid kick without being overwhelmingly hot. As far as the differences between the three, the White TRUFF sauce is a hint sweeter than the other two, the Original has a slightly earthier flavor than the others, and the extra spiciness of the Hotter TRUFF sauce spreads through the mouth quicker and is definitely hotter than the rest. Verdict: They're all really good! So far, these sauces have shined brightest when added to a nice tomato sauce, drizzled over a slice of pizza, scooped up by crispy french fries, and, believe it or not, even added to a salad dressing, but that's still barely scratching the surface! Plus it comes in a very classy looking box that's great for gifts.

    Get it from Amazon or Truff for $69.99, or try just the Original for $17.98, the White Truff sauce for $34.99, and Hotter Truff sauce for $17.98.

    8. A SodaStream so you can stop shelling out for pricey bottles of sparkling water and start making your own!

    Abby Kass / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "We LOVE our SodaStream. I always thought it was only for making soda/pop, but then I realized we can make sparkling water. It ends up saving us money by not having to buy La Croix. We have started experimenting with infusing it with natural fruit flavors because I like the flavored water. My boyfriend is perfectly content with plain bubbly water. Buy two CO2 cartridges so then you have a backup if one runs out and you don't have to run out to get it filled right away." —Nicole

    Get it from Amazon for $69 (available in four colors).

    9. A perfect little wicker laundry hamper ingeniously designed to fit neatly in the corner so it doesn't take up too much floor space. Plus, it comes with its own removable cotton canvas laundry bag, and is way cuter than a hamper has any business being. This should've been your hamper all along, but better late than never!

    The hamper with a towel inside
    Wayfair

    It's got over 1,000 five-star reviews for a reason!

    Promising review: "This is by far one of the most innovative ideas I have seen in a long time. No more plastic dirty clothes hampers, showing off all you haven't washed. This fits just perfect between my dresser and the door to the closet. Holds tons of clothes (they never seem to reach the top) and it is attractive to look at. Great invention! (Must have been a woman who designed this). Well-made and attractive!" —Pamala

    Get it from Wayfair for $23.99.

    10. A super cool floating bedside table so you can stop lining your bedroom floor with half-empty mugs just waiting to be knocked over. It takes up less space than a regular night stand, and easily attaches to your bed frame so you can keep your essentials within reach at all times.

    BedShelfie / Etsy

    BedShelfie is a POC-owned small business that focuses on space-saving minimalist nightstands.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in four sizes) or from BedShelfie on Etsy for $35.99 (more sizes and colors available here).

    11. Some septic-safe garbage disposal cleaner to help you put an end to spending time concocting DIY solutions and getting elbow deep in last week's veggies, only to find that your sink still smells. This stuff gets up close and personal with the gross stuff so you don't have to. Just stand back and watch it bubble and fizz its way through all the odor-causing grime.

    youtube.com

    Here's all that's required of you: 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 $10.46.

    12. A posture corrector that's surprisingly comfortable, can be worn discreetly under clothing, and will help you break bad habits that aren't doing your back any favors. If you've been ~slacking~ on maintaining good posture, there's no time to start like the present!

    Reviewer wearing the posture corrector
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have back issues. Serious ones. Aside from the degeneration and bulging discs, I have an awful hunch that seems to be getting progressively worse since I had my baby... I am also in constant pain and taking pain medication all day is not an option for me. My doctor suggested that I use a posture corrector to see if I could get any relief at all. Although I wasn't very optimistic, I gave it a shot. It took a couple of days of getting used to it but I'm so glad I took his advice! It helps my posture a great deal and my doctor said he attributes the pain relief I feel in my neck and low back to my posture being better. It helps my body remember not to slouch and in doing so has also helped my quality of life immensely!" —Corinne Cruz

    Get it from Amazon for $12.97.

    13. A simply perfect tortilla press kit that'll help you forget about all the years you weren't making homemade tortillas. This beautiful, high-quality press is super easy to use. Plus, it's made in Mexico out of old Singer sewing machines and will look stunning on your counter.

    Get it from Verve Culture for $48 (PayPal available).

    14. Some all-natural bottle cleaning tablets that'll bring your stained, smelly, and off-tasting bottles and thermoses back to life, without any scrubbing or effort required on your part!

    Reviewer before, during, and after images of a thermos using the tablets
    amazon.com

    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

    16. A reusable tote that would've saved you every time you really could've used an extra bag. It folds down until it's teeny-tiny, so you can just conveniently toss it into your purse until you need it.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I've been trying to minimize usage of unnecessary plastic bags when running quick errands. I've bought re-usable grocery bags, but they are too large for a quick pop into the drug store. Cue this bag — it's cute, it's small, but it holds more than you'd think and is so sturdy! I keep it in my purse all the time and I use it constantly. It's the perfect size for a small needs situation and I've used it at the grocery store, the drug store, little boutique purchases, everything. Love it!" —dcjaime

    Get it from Amazon for $10 (available in 10 colors/patterns).

    17. An amazing drill brush kit to make cleaning your tub and shower area much faster and easier. Instead of furiously scrubbing away and still winding up with mixed results, just attach the brush head to your drill, turn it on, and and let it do the hard work better and more quickly.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Need a drill? Here's one.

    Promising review: "I bought this on a whim because my walk in shower is just a pain to clean. I'm 51 and I guess I've just been old school with how I clean, so hand scrubbing it was for years. The FIRST time I used this to clean my shower it took five minutes AND it scrubbed my shower more clean than it has been in years. In the corners, the floor, the glass door... everything came out squeaky clean. I'm NEVER cleaning my shower by hand again." —Terry

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

    18. Some toothpaste squeezers with built-in stands that'll make you wonder why you ever struggled trying to squeeze out every last drop by hand. These'll help you waste less toothpaste while keeping the area around your sink a little tidier.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These work great. They keep even a full tube upright so the bathroom counter looks tidier. The key twists the empty section of the tube easily so every bit of the toothpaste is used with no fuss. Have one for my husband and I and for each of the two kids. Highly recommend this product." —Chelley Patterson

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $8.99.

    19. A bath overflow drain cover so you can finally enjoy a bath in your shallow tub without your overflow drain making that obnoxious gulping sound. This'll give you few extra inches of toasty water to relax in, while still ensuring that your tub doesn't overflow.

    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 $10.99 (available in four colors).

    20. A 26-inch dryer vent coil brush that makes it so much easier to remove lint and dust build-up around the house. Plus, removing blockage from refrigerators, dryers, and other vents can help keep your electric bill from going through the roof.

    Promising review: "We are in love! This thing cleans so well and gets all the way down the line and around the corner. Its wide bristles really help get all the lint out and even help remove some of the really stubborn pieces. We use this regularly now to clean out the vent!" —Leslie G

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    21. A pocket-sized Tile Mate that would've come in handy every time you misplaced your keys, wallet, or anything else you tend to lose. Just attach it to the item of your choice, and the next time you can't find it, you'll be able to use the Tile app on your smartphone to make your missing object ring until you track it down!

    Amazon

    Or try the Tile Pro if you want to extend the range from 200 feet to 400 feet.

    Promising review: "I normally don't write reviews for products, but the Tile is too fantastic not to yell it from the rooftops! I am always losing my keys or my phone and with the Tile it makes it so easy to find my keys in a flash or find my phone! All you have to do is attach it to your keys and you're all set! When you misplace your keys, you go into the app on your phone (which is super user-friendly) and tap find my keys. It then rings your Tile that is attached to your keys and if they are not in an area where they can ring, it shows you the location of the tile, which is also very helpful! If you misplace your phone, you can double tap the middle button on the tile and it will ring your phone! It is such an amazing product and I am thinking about attaching them to everything in my house!!" —Brooke

    Get the Tile Mate from Tile or Amazon for $24.99 or the Tile Pro from Tile for $34.99 or Amazon for $31.99 (both available in packs of one, two, and four).

    22. An over-the-drain hair stopper you'll wish you'd invested in before your poor drain was all clogged up.

    amazon.com

    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 $9.99.

    23. A washable sponge so you can stop buying and throwing away disposable ones. Just pop this one in the washing machine or dishwasher when it gets gross, let it air dry, and it's good as new!

    Get it from Marley's Monsters on Etsy for $10+ (available in three colors).

    24. A bidet toilet attachment so you can save on toilet paper and feel sooooo much cleaner after doing your business. It's very easy to install yourself, and after trying it, you'll never want to go back to your pre-bidet life.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was a little skeptical about transitioning to this type of bum cleaning, but now I don't know what took me so long. It just wasn't on my radar until COVID-19 and the toilet paper rush made me start wondering what I would do without TP. Now that TP is back on the shelves, I am staying with my TUSHY! It is a great product. Easy to install. Very cost effective. Regular water temp is not an issue at all. I was worried about cold water, but no problems. I used to be one of those people that thought this was just weird, but not anymore. Use the TUSHY then pat dry. Wash your pat cloths with the laundry." —Charles

    Get it from Amazon for $79+ (available in five colors).

    25. Some Avarelle tea tree and calendula oil-infused pimple patches that would've come in handy every time an uninvited pimple showed up just in time for your big event. These actually help reduce acne overnight (!) by drawing out pus trapped under the skin. Even reviewers who thought they'd tried it all were blown away by how you can literally see the gunk these patches pull out.

    Review image of the patches covered in gunk
    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 packs from Amazon for $8.49.

    26. A bottle of Daydreamer Face Wash that manages to be *both* gentle and powerful so you can wash your face without it feeling all tight and dry after.

    27. Some streak-free anti-fog spray that could've made the past year of unprecedented mask-wearing a lot more bearable. But it's not just for glasses! You can also use it on face shields, car windows, shower glass, and more!

    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 four sizes).

    28. An ergonomic desk chair your back will wish you'd gotten a looooooooong time ago.

    The mesh back black task chair with arm rests
    Office Depot

    Promising review: "I bought this chair for my office where I spend around six hours a day. With the three different adjustment leavers it was easy to set it for my needs. When we added a new staff member with back problems, I noticed he could not sit for more than 15 minutes without getting up and walking around. So I brought my chair to him and told him to adjust it to fit his needs. He sat for the next four hours without thinking about it and the next two days. When I asked him how he liked the chair he said, 'it must be pretty good because I have not given any thought to how I felt after you brought it to me.' So I gave him that chair and ordered me another one just like it." —DVBCSandraD

    Get it from Office Depot for $129.99 (originally $249.99).

    29. A heavy-duty car trash bag that looks much tidier than a backseat full of old fast food bags.

    Amazon

    This car trash can also come with a free pack of 10 liners. Once you're done with the free liners, you can re-up with a fresh pack of liners from the same brand which are sold separately.

    Promising review: "I love this thing! It has a thick protective plastic sewed on the inside so cleaning up spills is super easy. Plus, it came with a roll of plastic garbage bags that fit perfectly inside. It's a heavy-duty car trash bag and very good quality. I was honestly expecting something thin and flimsy. That is not what I got at all. It holds quite a bit of trash. I'm a mother of two and car junk adds up really fast. So glad I bought this because it has come in handy." —BonBon

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in two colors) and a 40-count pack of liners for $9.99.

    30. A rapid egg cooker that could've made your hectic mornings a little less stressful. This impressive lil' thing can make hard boiled, soft boiled, poached, and scrambled eggs in just a few minutes so you can feed the whole fam or meal prep for the week with minimal effort!

    The egg cooker surrounded by eggs
    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is the second one I've bought (first one I gave to my daughter, works great) and they did a wonderful thing with an upgrade. The first ones that came out, when eggs were ready, this tiny thing sounded off with short bursts of what sounds like a fire truck horn; everyone in the house hated this feature. The UPGRADE is a happy surprise; it plays the cutest little song with pleasant CHIMES :) I heard it go off from another room and thought it was my phone. So now it is perfect. It is quick and easy to make eggs in the morning while I'm getting ready for work. It takes maybe two minutes to add water, spray, and crack eggs into the little pan, turn on, and walk away. Clean up is a matter of washing the little pan. I like it because it doesn't take up much room on my counter and it's easy to use." —Cris in Houston

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

    31. Some cruelty-free, vegan-friendly body wash to help you leave dry skin in the past where it belongs! This body wash is made with a blend of essential oils to help nourish and cleanse your skin without drying it out.

    33. A pack of dishwasher-cleaning tablets that'll help save you from constantly having to re-wash dishes that've already been through a cycle. If your dishwasher has been slackin' on the job, say goodbye to endless home remedies and wondering if it's time to splurge on a new machine. These lil' tabs might be all you need!

    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.

    Promising review: "New Favorite Body Wash. Love this! It is so silky and leaves my skin so smooth. I recommend this product to anyone and everyone. A little goes a long way, it lathers beautifully." —Monica U.

    35. A cruelty-free Glossier eyebrow gel that deserves to take a ~brow~ and get a standing ovation for being so good at thickening eyebrows and keeping them in place. Plus, It's super easy to use, and doesn't get stiff or flakey like other gels.

    Promising review: "I’ve always wanted something mild to enhance my brows as my hair is dirty blond and my eyebrows are thin/light. This product is PERFECT! I used the blond color and it is the perfect shade for everyday use along with wearing it to go out. Extremely happy with this purchase!" —Kim

    Get it from Glossier for $16 (available in four colors).

    36. And finally, a vibrating scalp massager that'll give you a lil' head massage every time you wash your hair and make you wonder why you haven't been using it forever.

    Amazon reviewers noted that this little buddy worked for their various hair types and helped ease psoriasis or generally sensitive scalps.

    Promising review: "This is a great little tool. My daughter and I both have VERY thick hair. Mine is especially difficult because it's curly. I have a combination of type 3A and 3B curly hair. My daughter always had a hard time getting to her scalp with shampoo and conditioner which caused some flaking and dandruff. Since she's been using this, that has stopped. It's made it much easier for both of us to get down to the root shaft. For people saying 'just use your fingernails,' this works better. I've had long and short nails and this still works better. It's easy to grip and clean. No complaints here." —J. Love

    Get it from Amazon for $8.58+ (available in four colors).
