    We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us which products they love and swear by because their parents used them. Here are the heartwarming responses:

    Note: Not all submissions are from Community users.

    1. An $8 eye cream that'll moisturize and help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles to give you glowing, radiant skin.

    2. A miracle-working laundry bar for knocking the toughest stains ~out of the park~. Yes, it's baseball pants-approved!

    3. A set of clamp-top jars to keep pantry food fresh — and just to make your cabinets look nice and organized.

    4. An egg cooker that'll do the work for you so you can create perfect boiled, poached, and scrambled eggs every time — all without the stress.

    5. An olive oil-based facial cleanser for gently and easily removing makeup because the last thing you want to do at the end of a long day is spend forever washing your face.

    6. A roll-on topical gel to help relieve muscle and joint pain. It creates a cooling sensation on the skin and acts fast so you can feel some dang peace.

    7. A bar of Yardley's lavender soap that not only washes, but leaves behind such a delightful scent that this buyer leaves it in her linen closet to give everything a clean smell.

    8. A moisturizing ointment for reviving and hydrating chapped, cracking, and dry skin — and so, so, so much more.

    9. A bathroom and kitchen cleaner to rid your tubs and sinks from stubborn stains. Say it with me, bye-bye, grime!!

    10. A tub of good ol' butter Crisco that'll take your baking — and most importantly your cookies — to an entirely new level of yumminess.

    11. A champion food processor guaranteed to become your kitchen's most trustworthy sidekick. Cuisinart makes tons of models — this is the mini one, so it's a space saver!

    12. A powder cleaner for walls, floors, and wood that'll give you some impressive before-and-afters you'll want to show to everyone.

    13. A simple astringent because dirt-filled pores have no place on your skin and this cleanser will keep it that way.

    14. A topical cough suppressant that'll save you on sick days. I can also vouch for this because as a kid, my parents drenched me in it (especially on my feet — not kidding!) to help with colds and congestion.

    15. A classic KitchenAid stand mixer you'll never regret splurging on because they practically last forever — my mom still has the same one from when I was a kid!

    16. A garlic salt seasoning you can put on almost everything you eat to make it instantly taste 100 times better.

    17. A rosebud salve that can do a ton more than just hydrate dry skin. You can use it to tame frizzy fly-aways and unruly brows, and to give your lips a soft pink tint.

    18. A fancy pair of kitchen scissors to quickly chop all the veggies you need for a delicious salad — ya know, because we can all use more things to make our lives easier.

    19. A bottle of Dawn dish soap because believe it or not, this stuff goes WAAAAY beyond scrubbin' dishes. It can remove stains from laundry, polish car wheels, clean greasy cabinets, and even help relieve pets from fleas.

    20. A variety pack of mesh garment and bra bags that'll protect your delicates and lingerie pieces from snagging in the washer so you can keep your best items in the best shape possible.

    21. A pre-seasoned cast iron skillet because every kitchen needs one. Plain and simple! They last a lifetime when taken care of, get better over time, and make food taste even more delicious.

    22. And lastly, an organic multipurpose soap that can be used to relieve acne, heal minor cuts, and do basic cleaning jobs around the house!

    Ugh, so much family wisdom. I want to cry.
