    36 Products That Just Plain Get Results, Baby

    Products that truly live up to their promises — we love to see it.

    1. An amazing callus remover gel if you're interested in giving your tootsies a Mia Thermopolis-level makeover. Just give 'em a nice soak in hot water, dry off, and apply this miracle stuff, and let it sit for 5–10 minutes. Rinse it off, and finish with your go-to foot scrubber tool, then prepare to be left with (basically) whole new feet.

    Promising review: "Used for the first time today. Other reviews suggested wearing gloves, and I don’t have any, so I just tied a plastic bag over my hand, worked fine for me. My feet were terrible, flaky and caked with dead skin. So I soaked my feet for 10 minutes, applied the gel, let that sit for five minutes, soaked feet again, and used a foot scraper thingy. I’m happy with the results. I can’t wait to not have those lines on the bottom of my feet." —Esineda

    2. An amazing stain remover for concrete sure to have oil and grease stains belting out the melancholy refrain of a truly underrated Miley Cyrus bop. ♫ "So I guess the drivewayyyyyyyyy will be the end of the road..." ♫

    Promising review: "This product worked like a miracle. Very easy to use. The oil stain in my driveway was over 18 months old. I read the reviews, so I cleaned my driveway with car wash solution first to open up the pores in the concrete, let it dry completely, shook the bottle really well, poured it on the concrete, took a push broom and pushed the liquid in the direction of the lines in the concrete to make sure it absorbed, and in the Vegas heat it dried completely from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Be patient and make sure it dries completely. I used the push broom and brushed away the powder residue and the biggest oil spot and others were gone. I ordered two more bottles to do the rest of my driveway. I think the key is to cleanse it first to loosen the oil, then use it. In three hours the 18-month-old oil spots were gone. I highly recommend this product." —Loves

    3. Amazing AirPod-cleaning putty squares, because you probably don't realize just how much gunk is lurking in those precious, expensive little buds you put in your waxy ears all day. Though when I put it like that, it's probably a lot, right??

    Promising review: "AirSquares are AMAZING! I’ve tried for years to clean out my AirPods. Nothing has worked...until now. This is one of those perfect products that does exactly what it claims to do. My AirPods were so dirty that I was going to buy new ones. Not anymore!! My AirPods look like new after using these. I’ve already sent some to my family and everyone is getting some for the holidays! If you have dirty AirPods, you NEED AirSquares. You will NOT regret it." —Jason F

    4. A trio of power scrubber brushes you can attach your drill and instantly create a super-powered deep-cleaning device.

    Promising review: "These brushes are freaking fantastic. I tried them on a portion of my shower and bathroom floor tiles and grout. I immediately had to do the rest because it made the cleaner sections look dirty. I also tried it on the side of my fridge that is next to my stove top. It did a pretty good job there as well at removing grease and stains. The only downside is that it made me enjoy cleaning!" —Eric T. Ma

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in six colors, each with a different stiffness/purpose).

    5. A clever velvet slip cover set in case you'd like to get a new couch without actually, uh, getting a new couch. Forget paying for reupholstering or all new furniture — this stretchy wonder can cover up damage *and* give your space a whole new look.

    The set comes with a couch/armchair cover plus one to three cushion covers (depending on selected size).

    Promising review: "Very nice. It does not slip at all! My husband, 7-year-old, and I am constantly on and off the couch all week and it has stayed in place. I did not even attach the straps! Very soft. Made our old furniture look new!" —Kim Davies

    Get it from Amazon for $31.49+ (available in five sizes and 10 colors).

    6. An wowworthy exfoliating mitt you can use after a long shower or bath soak to get a simultaneously luxurious and kinda gross (but in a satisfying way!!!) exfoliation experience that'll leave you feeling like a whole new person.

    Take it from the user below, who left one of the best and funniest reviews I've read in a while 😂.

    Promising review: "Let me start by saying, I never knew that I was a walking, living, breathing mummy zombie lady. The first time I used this glove, I soaked in the bath to get my skin nice and prepped. I whipped that thing out expecting a bit of skin to fluff off, but what ensued was 30 minutes straight of scrubbing skin off that had built up since I was a toddler. I swore at one point I found old Band-Aid goo that had been buried under years of dead skin. OK, maybe that's not true, but with the amount of dead skin that came off my body, it could have been! I finally finished removing my snake skin and began draining the bathtub. What was left was like a scene from a horror movie. The entire bottom of the bathtub couldn't be seen because of the numerous chunks of dead skin clinging to it. That's not counting what went down the drain. I can only imagine that the creatures down there will one day rise to hunt me down and eat me because they gained an affinity for the taste of my flesh. I had to take an extra 15 minutes to clean my bathtub due to the gray, zombie skin that refused to be rinsed away. In other words, if you don't want to be a mummy, zombie person, this glove is your ticket to the living realm. Buy the glove, join the living — thank me later." —Shannon Graham

    Get one from Amazon for $7.99 or a pair for $10.99.

    7. Miraculous Folex instant carpet spot remover, which also works on upholstery to make stains do a Houdini-level vanishing act. Plus, it's odor free for scentsitive folks.

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing! Best carpet cleaner I've used. We have a ton of stains on our carpet — of various sizes, colors, and origins. Some are from our very old dog. Others were due to our crafty yet messy daughter. Others are...well...we have no idea. I bought this figuring 'what do I have to lose?' I sprayed in on some mystery black stains — and then a few hours later walked back into the room to find them all gone. I couldn't believe it! You can't even see where they were! I've gone through two bottles (ordering more!), as I've been spraying every stain on the carpet. Some were gone in one application. Others faded but didn't disappear, so I tried again, and they are gone! It totally removes the mystery black marks without a trace. It's not as good on long-ago pet stains, but I'm still working on that — haven't given up. I've tried almost everything — Oxiclean, every stain remover and pet stain remover possible, and absolutely nothing works like this." —JBat

    Get it from Amazon for $12.85.

    8. A revolutionary ScratchPad that'll basically get your dog to file their *own* nails while scratching away. Pupper pedis will never be the same, and the long-suffering,  paw-scratched surfaces in your home will be oh-so-grateful.

    It's from a small biz based in Atlanta, Georgia!

    Promising review: "Like many, my fur child will not allow anyone near his nails. After the first two attempts with this, I thought it wasn't going to work — he just did not want to scratch. But the third day, I got it out and asked him to scratch and off he went! You definitely want to check his nails to make sure they are somewhat even. Mine had a nail that was shorter than the others so it was getting close to the quick. We use hotdogs (chicken and turkey) as his treat, and we made sure that this is a treat he only gets when doing his scratches, which makes it even more exciting. Still have to work on the back paws but I'm confident he will get there. We got the medium and coarse, the medium is just fine. I think the coarse would be too much when first training since you'll want to do it more often. Highly recommend!!" —tinarydar3

    Get it from ScratchPadForDogs on Etsy for $44.95+ (available in medium or coarse grit or a combo and in four styles).

    9. Goo Gone's kitchen degreaser, which, well, gets the goo gone! Which is good, because from your stove to your microwave to your counters and shelves, goo seems to be a common theme.

    Look at the difference it made on the reviewer's shelf above, which used to be covered in grease!

    Promising review: "Cleaned a house with a thick layer of grease on top of the cabinets over the stove. The picture is worth 1,000 words. It sprays out as a foam so I had to spread it out a bit and I let it sit. Still took a significant amount of elbow grease, but it definitely worked." —Ellen 

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    10. Grip Clean, a special soap that people who work with their hands will always want to have, well, on hand.  It's designed to wash away substances like grease, oil, and ink, plus moisturize as it cleans so your hands aren't left raw.

    Promising review: "AMAZING! My husband and I saw this on Shark Tank and he immediately had me order some for him and his family for Christmas! He works on the farm and has used every industrial-type soap available. This works better than ANYTHING on the market! And it’s natural! I even use it on my little artist (7-year-old) who constantly has paint/marker/glitter glue/etc. on her hands. It truly is amazing!" —M. Caudill

    Get it from Amazon for $11.50.

    11. An easily portable (and even packable!) handheld steamer to save you trips to the cleaners and keep your favorite shirt looking like the day you bought it. "Hopelessly" wrinkled clothes may not be so hopeless after all.

    Promising review: "This is the best clothes steamer I've seen. This thing works great getting wrinkles out of my dress shirts and slacks and refreshes clothes in between trips to the dry cleaner. Just that alone will pay for itself in no time." —M.I.U.W. 104

    Get it from Amazon for $25.49.

    12. Washable microfiber mop pads that'll fit on your trusty Swiffer WetJet or similar mops so you can kick wasteful and pricey disposable pads to the curb. You'll be shocked — and perhaps horrified — by how much more ick they can pick up than the mop heads you have been using.

    One pad can last up to 100 washes and works on pretty much any surface, from wood to tile to stone.

    Promising review: "I wanted to reduce waste with disposable pads and I was pleasantly surprised by these. This photo was AFTER I cleaned the floor with the disposable pad! I was able to get a super clean floor, spots were easier to clean up, and it didn’t sound like it was scratching my floors. This was easy to use, didn’t use more cleaner then the disposable pads, and got my floor cleaner. Definitely gonna but more if the two I got ever wear out." —Riley

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $14.95.

    13. A possibly magical wine stain remover capable of saving you from the effects of your roommate's clumsier moments. Pinot more clothing and carpeting casualties after a boozy night in (or out).

    Promising review: "Totally impressed! The unassuming generic packaging and label left me a bit skeptical, but this stuff is almost as exciting as the wine I spilled! This Cabernet stain sat on my ivory faux-fur blanket for over a month before I tried this product. Completely gone in one try! Get this. Seriously. You won’t be disappointed." —PersianTess

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    14. 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 — which is perfect since the last thing you need is another thing on your daily to-do list.

    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 $19.98.

    15. Salicylic acid wart-removing adhesive bandages for anyone who's tried everything to get rid of a stubborn wart. These miracle workers are discreet enough to look like they're just covering up a paper cut or scratch, but will *finally* give you some relief.

    Promising review: "More than six years with a large, sometimes painful plantar wart on the bottom of my foot. The doctor tried freezing, I tried apple cider vinegar, aspirin, and freezing at home, over and over again...nothing worked. Never showing the bottom of my feet, refusing to get a pedicure with the girls and so, so embarrassed. It felt like I was doomed to have it forever; it was resistant to everything. Literally six years of fighting it and on a whim tried these because of the good reviews. ONE APPLICATION. I wore the bandage overnight. I didn’t think it did anything, but a few days later the wart just came off. I know it’s silly to be so emotional over a stupid wart but I’m telling you I nearly cried. I’ve never been so happy with a product in my life. Highly, highly recommend giving these a try if you’ve got a stubborn plantar wart." —Liz Dube

    16. An amazing car cleaner spray that works on pretty much every surface of your interior, from leather to plastic to vinyl to fabric to wood to rubber. Because your car is a mess, and the fewer products you need to clean it, the better.

    Promising review: "Seriously, what is this sorcery? I've had my car 10 years and have never thought to clean the upholstery and the infinite food/grease spills from tilted takeout boxes of authentic Mexican food. I embarrassingly got used to the way it looked until one day I cleaned my car really thoroughly and realized the seats were disgusting. So I tried the product. I cleaned small sections so it wouldn’t dry (with a scrub brush) and then used a few microfiber towels to wipe up anything remaining. It worked so well! No fumes." —KO
