1. A Tubshroom, the game-changing drain strainer to catch every single strand of shed hair and make clogged showers a thing of the past.

Promising review: "Can't say enough good things about this product. I have a family of four and would frequently have to snake our shower drain, it appears I won't be having that problem ever again. I even give my dog baths and this collects the hair. It does not seem to slow down the flow of water down the drain significantly. I'm very impressed having been using around a month. You don't know how much hair you wash down your drain until you use this!" —Aaron MorlockGet it from Amazon (available in six colors) or Walmart (available in five colors) for $12.95.Check out a BuzzFeeder's review for all the deets (and more ~hair raising~ pics).

2. An Instyler two-way rotating straightener with tourmaline ceramic plates to smooth your strands and add mega volume and shine — not just smooshing hair down like a regular flat iron.

amazon.com, amazon.com

It heats up in 30 seconds so you can style your hair and get out the door ASAP.

Promising review: "Best hair tool in my arsenal. I love that it easily straightens my wickedly curly hair but adds a polished curl at the bottom. My hair is very thick and very curly and this works like a dream once you figure out the best way. I watched YouTube videos and that helped tremendously. Definitely a bit of a learning curve to perfect the technique, but so worth it!" —sjfFSU

Get it from Amazon for $62.99+ (available in two sizes and colors) or a similar version in white from Walmart for $61.

3. OxiClean White Revive Stain Remover to not only say "bye bye" to stains and dinginess on all your white clothing, but also to keep your colors looking incredibly bright.

"Cute top! Is it new?" "No, I just used OxiClean."Promising review: "Wow! Better than bleach. With the first load of whites I used a whole measure of this product and no bleach and the whites came out like knew. I had no idea how dingy they had become. We've bleached them every time we did laundry but they just got dingier and dingier. After that first load, we went back to the recommended level of OxiClean to each load to keep whites white and to extend the use of the product and no bleach smell. We've relegated the chlorine to household cleaning chores and no longer use it in the laundry thanks to this product. It works on color clothing too. It comes out bright and clean." —JohnGet it from Amazon for $6.92 or Walmart for $7.56.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I bought my mom one of these salad cutters last week and when she sent me the pictures of the results I had to order one! The best thing about the salad cutter is that you don’t have to get out a cutting board or strainer! Two less dishes to wash is an amazing thing! I was able to fit a half of a head of iceberg lettuce, two vine tomatoes, three small cucumbers, half of a green pepper, and three green onions. The results are real with this ingenious invention!" —EmilyDPhotos

It is amazing how much hair this thing actually gets. Hair just lifts right off. It's such a better idea than those combs and brushes I have been using. I'm thinking about getting one for both hands.

I absolutely love how easy it is to assemble and use. And it's amazing all of the dirt is cleans. I have used it almost weekly and still can't believe how easy it is to use and how well it cleans. LOVE! Must have." —Katherine

It works with men's, women's, and kid's shoes — heels and flats!Promising review: "I will spare you the horrific 'before' picture of the complete nightmare that was my closet floor. Just imagine a dusty mess with shoes thrown all over each other in a sad attempt at giving some appearance of order, and you will have a good idea of why buying this shoe organizer was one of the best ideas I've had this year. The floor now looks so neat and tidy I can't believe my eyes every time I open my closet doors." —Veronica, just an average reader, you know?Get a set of 10 from Amazon for $25.95.

8. A set of Debbie Meyer Green Bags that'll prolong the life of all your produce — and even cut flowers! The photo below is more a with/without photo than a before/after, but you get the idea.

Banana on the left: stored in a Debbie Meyer bag for nine days. Banana on the right: no bag. Promising review: "We bought these to keep our tortoises greens fresher longer. They always seem to keep crisp after a week. So, we decided to do a little test. One banana in a bag and one out, same location in the kitchen. This was after nine days; you can see that’s there’s a distinct difference in the bananas. Amazing product!" —Trio MumGet a 20-pack (with three different size bags) from Amazon for $8.16 or Walmart for $9.99.

9. An Onion Chopper Pro for chopping (and storing) up to four cups of veggies. No more onion tears!

amazon.com

All the parts are dishwasher-safe too, so no more "ugh why do I have so many dishes to clean?!" tears too.

Promising review: "I have wanted one of these choppers for a long time but couldn't bring myself to buy one. I took the plunge on this one when they had a sale and I'm so glad I did. It is useful in so many ways! I have used it to cube chicken, dice tomatoes, onions, zucchini, summer squash, really just about anything! The cutting surface is generously sized and the two cutting blade sizes are perfect for almost everything you could want to cut! The blades are super sharp (my husband cut his thumb while cleaning it) but they include a brush to assist with cleaning them. This is well made and sturdy, the plastic handle is strong enough to push a raw potato through the blades and the blades are sharp enough to cut a tomato without squishing it. I really don't know how I survived without this for 35 years of my life! It is worth every penny!" —Maggie0981

Get it from Amazon for $22.97 or a similar version from Walmart for $20.90.

10. Wunderbrow, a waterproof, budge-proof, transfer-proof eyebrow gel with a fiber-like formula and spoolie applicator for a natural look that'll last and last (and last and last and last).

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I absolutely adore this product!!!! As you can see in the photos I have very sparse eyebrows that I cannot get to grow back! I decided to try Wunderbrow in Brunette, as I have dark blonde hair and the color matches perfectly!!! You can build up the color; one coat will give you a very natural look, which is what I have in the second photo. This product definitely lasts and is difficult to remove! I use an oil based remover to take it off so I can't testify if it would last overnight. It definitely lasts all day on an oily face that would usually cause my powder eyebrows to melt off by the end of the day!! Wunderbrow does not budge and I cannot be happier with this product!!!!" —Amanda

Get it from Amazon (available in five shades or Jet (available in four shades) for $14.96+.

11. A set of Wonder Hangers that'll help prevent those pesky snags and wrinkles caused by overcrowded closets.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Just hang five hangers along the bottom, then release one of the hooks hanging from your closet rod. Look how compact it gets!

Promising review: "I've been struggling for years for find the best way to maximize my closet space, until now! I have been pleasantly surprised and impressed! I find these hangers easy to use (they come pre-assembled. No fighting to get piece to fit just right, etc). It's easy to see exactly what items are on the hanger too which is a big plus! I've already placed an order for two additional sets. I'd definitely recommend this product to someone who fights to utilize every inch of closet space they've got in their home or apartment!" —Emily

You know that thing where the stud hangs too low? That's over.Promising review: "Literally the best thing ever, I like wearing huge studs that weigh down my ears significantly and my problems are 100% solved. I saw another review on here saying its impossible to tighten and loosen, which to the best of my knowledge is not true. On top of it I am allergic to almost all metals, even nickel free things and these do not bother me." —NSKDodgeGet a set of two pairs from Amazon for $29.99.

Check out a BuzzFeeder's full review for more info!

Promising review: "So worth it! I'm so happy with it. You will definitely save money using this. I think about how much I could have saved if this was invented 30 years ago. I mostly use it for small makeup jars. I tested out the Spatty Daddy on an 18-ounce lotion and it worked fine. Some reviews complain about not being able to get every curve and corner of their container... oh please! You get so much more than you would without it. I give it five stars. I'm not a Spatty relative, nor an employee, nor was I paid for this review. I'm just a 59-year-old happy customer that wants to share the love." —Liz

Get a set of two sizes (Spatty and Spatty Daddy) from Amazon for $11.99 or just the smaller size from Walmart for $4.94.

I'd add a Snuggie before and after but.... you get the picture.
