    31 Awesome Problem-Solving Home Products

    The fewer pesky problems you have to deal with, the more your house feels like a home.

    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. Sunny & Honey Carpet Miracle, a cruelty-free formula you can use in most any carpet cleaning machine to battle stains made by humans and pets alike. Your dog isn't the only one who sometimes has accidents, though yours are less the bathroom variety and more the spilling-a-full-glass-of-Merlot variety.

    It's from a family-run small business that specializes in cleaning products, especially ones for homes with pets!

    Promising review: "Worth every penny. I’ve bought this product so many times now I have it on auto ship! Saw the reviews and figured I’d give it a try. My cat likes to pee over the litter box and stained the brand-new carpet. I used this in my Bissell and it took all the stain and smell out!!! I’ll never use another cleaner." —Wendy

    2. Game-changing ceiling fan pulls, because apparently I'm not the only one who cannot for the life of me remember which cord controls the light and which controls the fan. Honestly, why don't they make all ceiling fans with these?!?

    Promising review: "This is the definition of 'product you didn't know you needed because you didn't know it existed.' I was FOREVER pulling the wrong chain on our bedroom ceiling fan. (Want the light off? Oh the fan's on high. Need to change the fan speed? you're in the dark.) They're a much better quality than I expected. They're actually quite heavy-duty pull chains, and they add a bit of fun to the decor (when you notice them — most of the time, who even thinks about a ceiling fan pull chain?). As an added bonus, my infant daughter loves staring at them while I change her diaper or jammies. I tap them to make the chains swing, and it's instant fascination, which helps make my job easier!" —LHD

    Get them from Amazon for $6.59+ (available in three colors and two lengths).

    3. The Thaw Claw, a handy tool you can attach to the bottom of your sink to keep packages of food in place while you thaw them underwater — because yes, you did forget to take that steak out of the freezer, even though you were reminded multiple times. ~Meat~ the product that'll help you thaw your protein in under half an hour, up to seven times (!!!) faster than usual.


    Thaw Claw is a Black-owned business that's been featured on Shark Tank, HSN, and Good Morning America!

    Promising review: "At first this looked gimmicky, but I saw a need for something like this. I use vacuum bags to freeze my meat, and with our schedules, thawing out our meal for that evening often includes placing the frozen block in water to thaw in a reasonable time. Without this item, I was left to put a heavy pot or iron skillet on top to keep it submerged to speed the thawing process. This device, with its suction base and spread design, keeps the food item under its fingers to allow the thawing process to complete in less than half the time by just putting it in the water. And before you object — 'That’s not safe; the temperature will rise too much and promote bacteria growth' — I have ServSafe certs. I know my time and temp levels, and those are in no way even close to approaching the danger zone unless you leave it for hours before cooking. I recommend this item for anyone, but especially anyone who has time constraints for evening dinner prep or any other time for that matter." —mudhen7

    4. A super-easy-to-put-up-and-take-down pet door made for sliding doors, because you want your doggo to have freedom to wander outside *sometimes* but not all the time. And you definitely don't want to deal with installing a regular doggy door. Plus, the opening on this one goes all the way to the ground, so senior fur babies won't have to step over anything.

    Pop Up Pet Door/Etsy

    Promising review: "Absolutely perfect! Easy to install and my dogs love it! And so much cheaper and more convenient than the other versions you can find in the pet stores." —Diana Barr

    Get it from Pop-Up Pet Door on Etsy for $55.99+ (available in three sizes).

    5. Super-convenient shower curtain clips to put an end to those small (and not-so-small) bathroom floor floods once and for all.

    Promising review: "Got these to hold our shower curtain in the camper. The curtain on our camper shower is just barely wide enough, so water would leak out. Not anymore!!! They blend in, so they look great. Just slide the curtain in and go — no more cleanup after your shower. Wish I had discovered these years ago." —Amazon Customer

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $8.99.

    6. Command adhesive towel bar that's such a clever solution for anyone who rents — you can finally add some extra storage to your bathroom or kitchen without losing your deposit (or spending more than $15)!

    It holds up to three pounds and works on most types of surfaces.

    Promising review: "I rent my house and needed a solution without putting new holes in the wall. This looks and feels like a 'real' towel bar! I’m so glad I was able to find such a great solution for a rental property." —caraashley

    Get it from Amazon for $13.79.

    7. The Laundress Crease Release spray, aka vegan and cruelty-free magic in a bottle that can make wrinkled clothes wearable with just a few spritzes — and no iron. Best of all, you can even use it on clothes you're already wearing and didn't have time to press...because you were, well, ~pressed~ for time.

    Stephanie Hope/BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed Shopping writer Stephanie Hope swears by this stuff. She writes,:"I'm 28, and I never actually learned how to use an iron. I mean I *get* how to do it, but have never owned one or done it myself. However, that doesn't mean that I walk around with wrinkled clothes! I own a personal steamer that I absolutely love, but when I'm feeling ~extra~ lazy or just running out of time, I have a secret weapon: the Laundress Crease Release spray. Hang your piece of clothing on a hanger or, if you're like me, just place it flat on your bed. Now you can either spritz all over *or* only on the wrinkled spots. Finally, give it a few gentle tugs to help smooth out the clothing and relax the fibers. And just like that, your shirt is looking way crisper and ready to be worn out! It's so simple to use, and it smells SO good! Sometimes I'll even just spray it on myself while I'm wearing the clothing! I find it so perfect for traveling, because I swear I have the Wrinkled Clothing Curse. Seriously, friends, this spray will save you time from ironing when you have simple little creases that don't require a whole ironing board to remove."

    8. A rolling storage cart that can slide into small spaces in the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, or pretty much anywhere you're desperate for a little extra space., Amazon

    You can also set it up without the wheels or with two instead of three shelves to suit all sorts of storage needs.

    Promising review: "This has transformed the way my bathroom looks in the best way. I have nothing on my floor or top of my toilet anymore, and it really just makes everything look 10x cleaner!! I wish I would have bought this sooner. Literally will do wonders for whatever it is you need to keep clean and organized. It fits perfectly in between the toilet and shower. The wheels make it easy for me to roll it out and clean my floors when needed. It holds all of my essential ‘quick grab’ items while also storing my surplus items. It took me less than five minutes to put together and blends in perfectly with the rest of my bathroom. The clips it comes with were also perfect for holding my Swiffer duster wand and trash bag holder. 10/10!!" —Monika Fia

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99 (available in three colors).

    9. An amazingly convenient veggie chopper from the kitchen geniuses at Oxo that'll not only save you a ton of time dicing ingredients, but also allow you to smoothly and easily pour out the cut vegetables when you're done. I bet this can shave 10 minutes off meal prep and cleanup, easily., Amazon

    Promising reviews: "I have arthritis in my hands, and this gadget is very very good. Just peel then chop and you can't go wrong." —Anita

    "LOVE this chopper for NO TEARS onion dicing! I just followed the photo guide on which way to cut the onion in half, and the whole thing was diced with two pushes of the lid. The onion was then stored in the lower level until I was ready and it poured cleanly into the pan. I've also used it to easily cut a poblano pepper." —RDD

    Get it from Amazon for $20.95.

    10. Oh Yuk jetted tub cleaner that'll clean your jets in just 15 minutes and is named for exactly what you'll say when you see all the gunk that was hiding in them. This'll solve a problem you didn't even know you and your bathtub had!

    It's from a family-owned, Minnesota-based company!

    Promising review: "Oh my gosh! You think your tub is clean and then you see what comes out with this! I followed the directions (fill tub over jets, pour in cleaner, turn on jets). Almost immediately, disgusting residue shot out. And then most came out as the chemical had time to circulate. So glad I got this cleaner instead of sitting in filth, especially because we just bought a new house and I thought, 'Maybe I should try to find out if there is a special cleaner for these tubs.' Glad I did and can know my tub is cleaned out." —Aaron Johnson

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (or $16.14 with the Subscribe & Save option).

    11. A roll-up dish rack that's so much more than a dish rack. It'll save you a ridiculous amount of counter space, both during cooking and cleanup, since you can use it to dry dishes, thaw meat, and strain veggies, or even as just another place to put cutting boards and dishes during meal prep. And when you're done, you can just roll it up and put it under the sink!,

    Promising review: "How did I ever get along without this thing? We were looking for a way to dry dishes without taking up counter space with a dedicated drying rack. I decided to give this little contraption a try, and boy, am I glad I did. It is incredibly versatile and is a wonderful addition to our kitchen. So far I have used it for drying large items over the sink, filling a pot when the sink was already full, and as a counter trivet for a hot pan, and it performs beautifully in all these roles. The metal rods are strong and sturdy enough to hold heavy items, long enough to span our sink from multiple angles, and, best of all, it rolls up for easy storage when not in use. All around a great kitchen tool, and I'll never be without one again." —T. Eicher

    Get it from Amazon for $25.98+ (available in three sizes).

    12. A convenient book weight to hold your place hands-free whether you're reading a magazine outside on a breezy day, propping open a cookbook on the counter, or using your hands to munch some popcorn while you devour a new thriller.

    long weight holding down both sides of a book

    Promising review: "I've known I needed this for a long time, but if I could just use another book to prop open my current book, why wasn't that good enough? Being a bibliophile, there are books open in nearly every room of my house. I bought three and put them to use immediately. It's so nice to have my book open and ready when I want to read a few pages or have prepared myself a snack to settle in for a longer read. The weight is just right to keep even larger books open, and the texture of the material keeps it from sliding down the page. I'll be buying more of these as gifts!" —Mary Roberts

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    13. Adjustable bedsheet fasteners that'll actually keep your fitted sheet in place ONCE 👏 AND 👏 FOR 👏 ALL. Really.


    Promising review: "My husband turns a lot in his sleep and has always woken up with the fitted sheet halfway off his side of the bed. We bought these, and we have NEVER once had to adjust the sheet in the morning! These are amazing! They're the kind of thing you'll never know how you lived without before." —LinseyB

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $8.99 (available in three colors).

    14. A simple-yet-brilliant lid organizer with adjustable dividers so you can finally, finally, FINALLY find the lid that actually fits the container you're using. *Extremely dramatic infomercial voice* If your reusable container drawer looks like a lawless wasteland, please know that you're not alone — but there is hope.


    Promising review: "This product does exactly what it's supposed to and does it well. In under 15 minutes, I took my nightmare lid drawer and turned it into a functional, convenient storage space. The dividers were simple to install and provided flexibility. Slowly but surely I am getting my tiny, chaotic kitchen under control, and this got me a huge leap closer." —S. Hawthorn

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in five sizes).

    15. A creative and customizable cord- and router-concealing box made from vintage books to hide your eyesore of a router and tangles of wires in the most ~highbrow~ of ways.

    It's from a small business based in Utah!

    Promising review: "I’m pretty sure I’ve never loved a purchase from Amazon as much as I love this one, and I’ve been a Prime member since day one. This product is EXTREMELY well made and very unique. Plus it does the job of hiding the ugly routers and cords. The customer service was great and responsive. I was a little hesitant to spend the money on this, but after years of living with the husband’s pile of technology, the money was well spent!" —AmazonEmme

    Get it from Covogoods on Amazon Handmade for $29+ (available in 14 sizes and 19 colors).

    16. A convenient bed shelf that perches on the edge of your bed frame to make splurging on a bedside table totally unnecessary (or, if you already have a bedside table, give you extra space for your endless water glasses and unread books, or make some room on the other side of the bed for when your partner sleeps over).

    the wood shelf perched on the side of a bed holding a mug, smart home device, earbuds, a phone, and a journal

    Promising review: "Legitimately changed my life. This thing is so simple, yet so perfect! It fits great on my wide bed frame and is super sturdy. It's so fabulous to have my glasses and phone so accessible now. I honestly don't know how I survived without this for so long. I was always fumbling around in a blurry state trying to reach and find my glasses. I'd often knock them on the ground, and have to get out of bed and feel around until I found them. Now I can just roll over, easily grab my glasses, grab my phone, and get on with the slow process of waking up and getting my day started. It's so great that a few weeks after getting mine, my husband ordered one for his side of the bed as well. And he doesn't even struggle with the same vision impairments that I do. He uses it for devices, keeping a drink close by, etc. We both have surfaces (he has a nightstand, and I have a short bookshelf) next to our sides of the bed, but this BedShelfie is soo much better. I am not kidding when I say that this literally changed my life for the better. I don't say that about many products. ;-)" —deannajo

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99+ (available in five sizes and styles, including a version with a cup holder).

    17. An endlessly reusable, nonadhesive hair remover roller you can just glide over your furniture to suck up the seemingly impossible amounts of fuzz your beloved fur baby deposits on a daily basis. Yes, you can now wear black pants and have company over! Maybe even both at the same time!

    Promising review: "I have no idea how I lived so long without it. I literally wish I could find the words to describe how incredible this thing is. I could slap myself for not buying it sooner. I have an 85-pound golden retriever who SHEDS. Not normal shedding — I'm talking this dog has so much hair it's ridiculous to clean up. I vacuum every day and run the Roomba when I'm working. But there was nothing besides lint rolling that I could do for the couches, pillows, sheets, etc. Until this. When I got it, I used it really quickly on our ottoman, which has a ton of dog hair on it just from existing in our living room. Ran this back and forth a little and I kid you not, all the hair was gone. Took it to the couches, sunroom furniture, all the throw pillows, and the bedsheets (which is absolutely life changing), and it removed 98% of the hair. I contemplated buying another one so my husband and I could tag team everything that needed fur removal. I cleaned the couch cushions tonight and when I sat down on the couch (IN A BLACK SHIRT) I had no dog hair on me when I got off the couch. This thing is absolutely incredible and has surpassed any expectation I could have had. I'm not one to give into gimmicky 'miracle' products but this one is legit. Just buy it!" —Nichole

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    18. Glisten Disposal Care foaming cleaner, which'll not only stop your garbage disposal from smelling like something died down there, but also look dang cool doing it.

    the blue foam filling the sink

    All you gotta do is run some hot water, pop one of the packets in your disposer, let it foam, then wait for the foam to fully disappear. Then, kiss all the ickiness that's been living down there goodbye!

    Promising review: "WHERE HAS THIS BEEN ALL MY LIFE???! Holy cow, I didn't realize how easy and quick it was to clean a garbage disposal until I bought this product! Typically, I'd just use vinegar and baking soda down the drain and call it good. I didn't know that there was an actual disposal cleaning product available until I stumbled across it through a BuzzFeed article. I had to try it. The instructions are very simple. It literally takes five minutes and some hot water and VOILÀ! you have a clean, no-longer-stinky garbage disposal. Any time I got a whiff of an odor, all I did was drop one of these packs in the disposal and the smell was GONE! Plus, the blue foam bubbling in the sink was amusing to watch. Worth every penny!!" —VadersGirl

    Get two bags of four packets each from Amazon for $9.90.

    19. A double-pocket caddy that can rest perfectly over the arm of your sofa to ensure you'll never lose your phone or remote in the abyss between the cushions again. Only TRULY organized people can claim to know where the remote is at all times, so congrats.

    This Vancouver-based shop specializes in gorgeous minimalist home goods!

    Promising review: "This is the best! Such great quality. Finally a cute and functional place for remote/phone/hiding little things from our baby and toddler. :)" —Emily Hildebrand

    Get it from DLAwesomeLiving on Etsy for $14.12 (available in three colors).

    20. A snaking tool to free your drain of all the hair that's already there. I've always thought I had a strong stomach for before and after photos, but, people, I think we have found my limit.

    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 the 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 three from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in two lengths).

    21. A super-helpful strainer bin set for anyone who has v little patience for hand-washing clothes (same). It not only speeds up the process, but also works great for small spaces (it's designed to fit in sinks) and saves you from sticking your hands in the icky water. You don't even need to tip it over to empty it when you're done — the base bucket has a drainage plug!

    The Grommet

    It's from a small business and was invented by a mom who was tired of being grossed out when washing cloth diapers!

    Promising review: "I have a lot of hand-washing tasks that need quick attention. The Strucket provides just the answer, and without a lot of complexity or heavy lifting. An all-in-one tool for soak, wash, and rinse is just what I needed. We have used ours for about a year and don't want to go back to the old technique. Saves time and effort for such a common task." —Michael

    Get a regular bucket and a strainer bucket from The Grommet for $59.95 (available in three colors).

    22. A super-handy adjustable jar opener so you'll never again have to give up on having a pickle or spaghetti sauce because dang, do they superglue that stuff closed!?!?!

    hands using the opener

    It works on lids from 1–3.5 inches wide!

    Promising review: "I have arthritis and also a demyelinating neurological disorder that causes pain and weakness in hands. I've had trouble for years opening jars and bottles. My husband (love him dearly) bought this for me and it has been a lifesaver. I've used this to open pickle jars, jam, soda bottles, and even my water bottles. It's adjustable and uses little metal teeth, but if you secure it nicely on the lid it works spectacularly! No more frustrating nights home alone not being able to open things. This device has been great for me and I recommend it! Keep in mind, there is a crank handle to turn on the top of it to adjust the teeth to meet the diameter of the lid, so if your pain is too bad or you have loss of dexterity in your hands this may not work for you, but it's worth a try. I was a little scared of the twist knob on the top, but haven't had any trouble with it." —M.L.

    Get it from Amazon for $26.40+ (available in two colors).

    23. Wet & Forget shower spray, which'll revolutionize the way you clean your bathroom. True to its name, all you have to do is spray your shower or tub, let it sit overnight, and rinse it the next morning to reveal a cleaning miracle. It works so well, you only need to use it once a week!

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing! I had a horrible gray ring in the bottom of my shower that was impossible to remove. I had tried the Dawn dish soap method (with a lot of scrubbing) and had even used toilet bowl cleaner to try to remove the soap scum. My next step was to tear out and replace the shower pan and tile. I figured this was my last chance. I ordered the Wet & Forget spray and really coated the shower walls and floor pan and walked away. I CANNOT begin to tell you how happy I was to rinse down the walls sometime later and watch all that crud roll right down the drain!! This is the best product I have ever used in my life!! Works great and no toxic fumes!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.89.

    24. A draft stopper that'll close up the space under your door to keep out the chilly breeze this time of year. Reviewers ❤️ it for a multitude of other uses, too — blocking warm air in the summer, reducing noise, keeping bugs out, or even keeping pets from sticking paws or knocking toys under doors and appliances.


    Promising review: "Why did I wait so long? I've been struggling with door stoppers and/or rolled-up rugs to keep the cold air out. Finally got tired of how unattractive it was to have a rolled blanket in front of the door, but none of the regular door stoppers worked very well and got all bunched up. After researching ways to keep the cold air from coming in under the door, I came upon this under-door seal. Decided to try it and so happy. It was so easy, and it looks so nice. You can't really tell it's there, and so far it's stopped cold air. Just got it today but from what I can tell it looks like it will stay put for awhile, and if not they included some extra tacks, that could be used, but the glued strip seems pretty strong. I highly recommend it, and the price is so reasonable." —Nancy H.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in four colors).

    25. A genuinely genius butter spreader knife with little holes to help you get spreadable butter from even the hardest sticks, because you're never more impatient than when you're hungry, and hanger and impossible-to-spread butter and broken toast really do not mix well.

    Reviewer's knife with holes that pull up strips of butter from the stick

    The serrated side also works well as a cheese knife!

    Promising review: "Perfect spreader for refrigerated butter. No more torn bread and no waiting for butter to soften. Great purchase. Well-made stainless spreader knife." —Apple

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    26. A clever four-slot spoon rest that's a serious upgrade to the basic one you've been using, because who actually uses just one utensil when cooking?? This baby was designed with all your drippy spoons, spatulas, and tongs in mind.,

    It's BPA free and dishwasher safe!

    Promising review: "This thing is fantastic and the price point is ludicrously cheap. It works exactly as it should, if not better. The gaps look so small at first, but when you actually use the tools, the gaps are perfect. Favorite feature is the lip that surrounds the drip area. I was making risotto and I placed the spatula on its side and it dripped a sizable amount. Luckily the lip caught it all, meaning a clean counter. Cleaning was essentially as easy as rinsing under warm water; no staining. This was a little Christmas gift to the house, because I feel my house has earned better gifts this year due to our overuse during the pandemic." —Mike S

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in two sizes and 18 colors).

    27. A hairbrush-cleaning tool for anyone who, like me, becomes disgusted by hair the second it is no longer attached to a head and always procrastinates cleaning buildup from their brushes so they don't have to — *gasp* — touch it. This thing is willing to deal with that grossness for you.

    The reviewer above got such amazing results by using this tool along with soaking their brush in a Dawn-and-diluted-vinegar solution!

    Promising review: "When I bought this I was really skeptical. I am grossed out by my hairbrush and clean it all the time. I've soaked it in vinegar and tea tree oil, used a toothbrush, scrubbed it with shampoo, picked it clean by hand — everything you can think of. Still, it's so hard to get the little lint that forms at the base of the brush — they don't dissolve off and you have to pick them off the bristles one by one because a toothbrush won't even break them up. This thing works amazingly. I don't know why, it just does — the particular texture of the bristles on this really grabs everything. It scraped the little lint rings right off and now my brush is cleaner, 10 times as fast." —HeartsofHavoc

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    28. A remarkably clever and reliable spray bottle hanger to save tons of space in cabinets, laundry rooms, bathrooms, or anywhere you store cleaning products. You just stick 'em to the wall like you would a regular Command strip — which means they can adhere super strongly to multiple surfaces without leaving damage or requiring you to break out a hammer and nails.

    A reviewer's wall with eight spray bottles each mounted on one of these hangers

    Promising review: "Let's face it, Command products ROCK! This was perfect for our truck camper, under the sink, to hold a small, refillable spray bottle of 409 to clean the kitchen. It has literally hung by this Command hanger for 3,000 miles now — bumpy roads, up and down hills, you name it. Everywhere we've gone, and neither the bottle nor the Command hanger have ever been found down. Still hanging in there like the day I stuck it. Works AWESOME!!!! It also keeps the bottle out of the way by tucking it up to one side under the sink. PERFECT!" —Jenn

    29. A genius slicing tool that'll allow you to hold tricky foods like cherry tomatoes, shrimp, bread, meat, and bagels steady without putting your fingers in harm's way. It'll also seriously reduce your chopping time when you're prepping a salad!

    hands holding the handle on top of the white device, with cherry tomatoes held between the top and bottom parts so they can all be cut at once
    hands using the tool to slice chicken breast horizontally

    It's BPA free and dishwasher safe.

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my life? I love this gadget! It’s so simple. Trust me...if you cut tomatoes in half, just do it!! It’s so easy to use. You do need to pretty much fill it up; you can’t just put three or four tomatoes in. Also, don’t press too hard, just lightly rest your hand on top and use a VERY sharp knife for best results. If your knife is dull this will not work! And if you cut raw chicken breasts in half, buy two, because you can use one for that as well!! Just make sure you label it 'raw chicken' and only use it for that." —Leah

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95 (available in seven colors).

    30. A wall-mounted bathroom organizer, which, like Phineas and Ferb, is truly gonna do it all when it comes to getting your messy bathroom counter under control. It comes complete with several storage compartments and hooks, a towel bar, a phone holder, two to three sleek cups, room for up to four toothbrushes, and even a toothpaste dispenser!!

    the white organizer on a reviewer's wall, with three colorful cups and holding toiletries and a towel

    It mounts via adhesive and can support up to 15 pounds. 

    Promising review: "I am absolutely in love with this dispenser! Its contemporary appearance complements my bathroom well. It has multiple compartments that allow for very versatile use. The toothpaste dispenser is not battery powered; I am not entirely sure how they mechanically got it to work LOL, but it's amazing as well. Clean application every time. I mostly enjoy the toothbrush holder and quite large center compartment as they have dust covers. I am able to store my razor and face brush in a clean environment. I use the top compartments for my face and haircare products barring shampoo/conditioner — the adhesive is amazingly strong, I just wouldn't put that kind of weight on it personally. I would definitely recommend and would definitely purchase again. Amazing product." —Nina

    Promising review: "This is the greatest thing for kids or adults alike. I have it set on just the blue light. When I get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, it makes me smile.
