    1. An oven cleaner so strong it'll fight the most stubborn stains — all you need to do is leave it on overnight and spend the rest of your time doing something more useful. It's also gentle enough that you don't need protective gloves.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "This oven cleaner is magic in a can. I removed the racks and sprayed a generous amount on the sides, bottom, and door of the oven. It says you only have to leave it for a couple hours to get the best results, but I kind of forgot about it and didn’t remember until the next morning. But, boy did it work! All the grease and grime came off with a damp cloth and a flick of the wrist. It took me about five minutes to wipe down the entire oven, and as you can see, the results are impressive." —Kaysey Davis

    Kat Angus/BuzzFeed

    I have this spinning makeup brush cleaner, and it has totally changed the game.It uses a battery-operated spinner to swish the dirty brush in soapy water (I just used liquid soap, but you can also use special makeup brush shampoo), and then you just lift the brush out of the water and keep it spining for a few seconds — voilà! Within 30 seconds, the brush is totally clean and — more importantly —totally dry. I cleaned and dried all of my makeup brushes in under ten minutes.

    8. A washable grooming glove that makes grooming easy. It'll trick your pet into thinking you're giving them a loving massage when actually, you're doing that and removing all the loose hair so your house stays pet hair-free.

    Fellow BuzzFeed writer AnaMaria Glavan raves about this product:

    "My dog has recently started to shed, and I am finding that all my clothes are covered in his fur. I had seen this pet grooming glove all over the internet, so I figured I’d give it a try. And boy oh good boy, it genuinely works. The glove is super comfortable and using it couldn’t be more foolproof: just put it on and run your hands through your pet’s fur. That’s it! The silicone grooves pick up so much fur with ease. Like, my dog looks close to hairless. After a few runs, I found that I would have to remove fur from the glove before continuing (you can pick up the fur with your other hand or run the glove under water) but it’s no biggie. The silicone actually makes it really easy to keep this clean. Not only does this *not* bother his skin, but he….loves this. He starts snoring after exactly two run-throughs on his back. Also, his coat looks SO shiny after each use! TL;DR: this is one of those inexpensive add-ons that any pet owner should have on hand."

    Even BuzzFeed editor Jess Probus has spoken on its charms:

    "The name was probably the thing that first made me click, because it's fun to say. Then I read some of the more than 5,000 raving Amazon reviews and immediately ordered it. The craziest part of the TubShroom's magic isn't just that it catches ALL the hair before it gets down the drain, every time, but that it does so without slowing down the draining process for the shower. It's incredibly easy to clean off and I only have to do it once a week when I'm cleaning the bathroom. Life changing, indeed."

    BuzzFeed writer Heather Braga loves these things and had this to say:

    "My mother-in-law recommended this product to me and it may be the greatest thing she's ever given me (aside from, I guess, the life of my husband). I had a bunch of tarnished Tiffany's jewelry and my standard jewelry cleaner wasn't doing the trick. I ordered a jar of these wipes and put them to the test. I think my photos (pictured above) speak for themselves! I went to tooooown cleaning every piece of jewelry I owned simply because I was amazed at how well this product worked."
