    1. A tonsil stone remover that'll gently and safely extract those lil' annoying balls of bacteria/food particles that get trapped in your tonsils, causing irritation and bad breath. The tool has an LED light built-in, so you can see what you're doing while getting up close and personal with your tonsils.

    2. An ear wax remover to clean out all that ear-i-tating wax from your ears. When they're so clogged that you can't hear or the discomfort is real, put some peroxide and warm water in the bottle, spray the solution into your ear, and hang your head over the sink to catch the solution and loosened wax. You'll be truly ~shook~ by what gross looking things come out.

    3. Some cockroach bait so you can kick any unwanted roommates out of your home. Just place a pea-sized amount of the bait in in crevices, corners, and near sources of water (like behind the toilet) to see all your creepy crawly problems disappear.

    4. A tongue scraper that'll eliminate all that yucky bacteria buildup that your tooth brush couldn't get off, making your breath smell a whole lot better.

    5. A mold and mildew removing gel so you can finally get rid of that nasty buildup in the corners of the bathroom that keeps magically reappearing every time you *think* you've finally gotten rid of it.

    6. A finger guard to save your digits from the gross pile of cheese dust that stains them when you're crunching on some delicious snacks.

    7. A flexible drain snake that'll use its skinny design, powerful rotating handle, and over 100 hooks to latch onto any hair and gunk, effortlessly pulling something that looks like the Loch Ness monster out of your sink.

    8. A pumice stone so you can remove rust and lime deposit buildup from your toilet and make going to the bathroom just a little more pleasant.

    9. Or a toilet cleaning wand that'll lift your ~shitty~ mood when it leaves your toilet sparkly clean. Plus, the wand has a nifty little switch that lets you drop the head right into the trash so you don't have to touch any nastiness and so the brush doesn't grow bacteria.

    10. A gutter cleaning tool to help you scrape out all the sludge and leaves from that highly forgotten about (but important!) part of your home. Its flexible design is meant to fit any size gutter and removes two big handfuls of crud with one scoop.

    11. A pet hair roller, because no matter how much you love your kitty or pupper, their hair is everywhere. Sometimes including in your mouth, which is pretttty disgusting. This powerful tool will help you remove their hair from fabric without the annoying sound of a vacuum or sticky lint-roller sheets.

    12. A dryer vent cleaning kit that'll make you wonder how you didn't start a fire (cue Billy Joel) when you see how much lint is packed in your vent.

    13. A three-layer blinds duster so you can finally clean the filthy blinds you've been blatantly avoiding because it's just too darn annoying. You and this thing will live ~dustily~ ever after with how easy it makes this daunting task.

    14. A foot file so you can ~crack~ the code to having nice and smooth feet. Carefully use the file to shave away dead skin and polish those puppies 'til they're soft and clean.

    15. A fan-favorite Tubshroom to avoid getting into a ~hairy~ situation with your drain. Pop this in so it can catch what you shed while washing your hair and save you from having to call the plumber every other week.

    16. A houseplant insect trap so you don't need to go chasing those fellas around the house with a fly swatter. Instead, put this gnat-attracting adhesive on the stake in your potted plants, and let it do all the magic.

    17. A pair of charcoal deodorizers to take the smell out of your shoes so your friends don't basically pass out every time you take them off. The best part? They are reusable for up to two years as long as you air them out in the sun every once in a while.

    18. A bottle cleaning tablet you can drop into travel mugs, water bottles, or kettles to finally remove those nasty stains you thought would forever be a part of them.

    19. A bottle of oven cleaner that'll help you destroy those scary and sticky burnt blobs of food from the bottom of your oven using little to no elbow grease.

    20. Sweat Block, a wipe you can use once every seven days (or as needed) in conjunction with your regular deodorant to make sure those pit stains stay far, far away.

    21. A bottle of pet ear wax cleaner so your furry friend can live their best life *without* all that crud in their ear.

    22. A rust-removing gel spray if you've become a little, well, rusty with doing your chores and neglected the hard water stains in your bathroom. Lucky for you, this spray will make it look good as new.
