    These 49 Products Only *Seem* To Be Too Good To Be True

    But they really and truly work.

    1. A dozen Bottle Bright tablets that'll deep clean your thermoses and on-the-go bottles — no scrubbing required. These'll get into all those hard-to-reach spaces and remove *all* the gunk.

    2. A microfiber cloth to remove every single trace of dirt and makeup (even waterproof formulas!) with just water. And the cloths are super soft, so you won't have to resort to harsh scrubbing that can dry out your face.

    3. ~Mega thermal~ heat-retaining socks with a brushed lining and moisture-wicking fabric, because when your tootsies get that winter chill, it's hard to get them to *ever* warm up again.

    4. A spider and insect catcher that'll keep pests in its clutches without smushing them so you can bring them outside where they belong.

    6. An exfoliating bar of soap reviewers with KP (aka keratosis pilaris) swear by to get rid of those tiny red bumps.

    24. A seven-in-one Instant Pot you've probably heard a lot about — for a good reason. Or rather a good seven reasons: It slow cooks, pressure cooks, makes rice, sautés, makes yogurt, and keeps food warm. Bye bye other appliances!
