    49 Products To Help Solve Your Biggest Frustrations

    Don't stress; these products have your back.

    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. A rapid car charger with a whopping FIVE USB ports and a FIVE-FOOT cable to power up the whole family's devices on the go. No more fighting, kids!

    Amazon

    The USB ports are ~intelligent~, meaning they can detect which device you're plugging in, and charging it as fast as the device will allow.

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

    Promising review: "This is one of the best things I think I have ever bought. I got this for a family vacation where there is always a fight over who gets to charge their phone. This gave everyone the chance to use it and having the part that reaches to the backseat was PRICELESS!!! My son could charge and play at the same time, which was lovely. I highly recommend this to parents with more than one child!!" —Leigh-Anne L.

    2. A draft stopper you can easily install (just peel and stick!) on your door to keep your home the temperature you *want* to to be, whether you're keeping the A/C in during the summer or the cold out during the winter.

    amazon.com

    You can cut the pieces to fit your door, too. And it can help keep bugs out, which 🙌.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.49 (available in four colors).

    Promising review: "These are a must have! I couldn’t believe how easy these were to apply. The material is very easy to cut with normal scissors and I was able to lay it on the door cut the exact length apply and noticed and immediate difference! We bought these for two doors leaking cold air into the house but it’ll also double to keep little bugs out! The material is very bendable which is nice if you open the door and it’s long it doesn’t damage anything it’s very rubbery." —Lindsay T.

    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.

    Amazon

    They'll keep your feet warm (and dry) in up to -15°F.

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $21.99 (available in sizes 5-9 and 8-13 and two color sets).

    Promising review: "These socks have just changed my life. I am not even kidding. I suffer all of the time from feet that are painfully cold when the temperature outside is anything less than about 75 F. It is horrible. I wear double socks with slippers; still have cold feet. Always having them tucked under a few thick blankets while watching tv, etc., but still feeling the cold in my feet. Well, I saw the reviews and ordered these. I put them on this evening, put on my usual slippers, and shortly after I felt like I had an electric heater inside my socks. They feel so very warm and toasty. I have never had a sock that could do this. Even thick wool socks don’t do this. MY FEET ARE ACTUALLY WARM which is something that rarely ever happens. I am in LOVE with these socks. I could kiss whoever invented them." —Linda Marie Nutter

    4. A fan-favorite cold brew coffee maker so you don't have: 1. spend so much money at coffee shops 2. drink watered down hot coffee poured over ice or 3. get heartburn from acidic brews.

    BuzzFeed, Amazon

    The stainless steel mesh filter keeps grounds OUT of your coffee, and the airtight lid means your brew *won't* start to taste like your leftover Chinese food.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.82 (for the one-quart size) or $31.74 (for the two-quart size).

    Promising review: "Delicious iced coffee! Don’t be fooled by getting an iced coffee at Starbucks and paying almost four bucks. For less then a dollar you can brew your own cold brew coffee at home. The best part is that cold brew has 60 percent less acid then regular coffee does. So go ahead acid reflux sufferers, have that second cup! I used some gourmet beans from a local coffee roaster for $15 and ground them myself. The coffee was far better than Starbucks could ever dream of making. Best of all I get three days worth of coffee for around $2 bucks worth of beans. Pretty amazing." —Robert Klaproth

    I have and looooooove this cold brew maker. Learn more in my full review!

    5. A neck pillow you can twist into several different positions so you can get actual rest while traveling — without your head bobbing up and down.

    amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $29.97 (available in seven colors, and adult, adult XL, and children sizes).

    Promising review: "Have wanted a travel pillow forever! Took a chance on this. Oh my gosh it’s amazing! It forms to my neck and no matter which way I turn my head, I can fall asleep instantly. This is so much better than standard travel pillows. One of my best Amazon purchases to date!" —Lauren Grubb

    This won best mid-priced travel pillow on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    6. A few sheets of LED-dimming stickers to finally keep those pesky router, TV, clock, and other electronic lights from ruining your ~room of complete darkness~ — and therefore your night's sleep. All with just a little sticker — how easy is that?!

    amazon.com

    They dim 50-80% of the light, so you can still tell that your devices are still actually *on* and functioning. You can always double them up to completely block out the light source if you'd like (many reviewers do this) or buy the stronger **full black-out** edition!

    Get a sheet of over 100 dimming stickers (in multiple sizes and shapes) from Amazon for $5.99.

    Promising review: "This is the best thing you never knew you needed. I own a digital clock with the numbers displayed in red LED light, and every night I've blocked the light with a cover so it doesn't shine in my eyes as I sleep. Silly I know, but I like my room pitch black and cave-like. On a whim I bought this product. OH MY GOD! Game changer!! For the first night EVER I didn't have to cover the clock display before I went to bed!! I had no idea how big a difference this little dimmer could make, but I'm more than pleased with the result. I can still see the time display just fine, but now my room is a happy cave! Some commenters argue you could get the same effect using electrical tape, regular tape covered in sharpie, etc, but true to the name of these products if you're looking for something to DIM, then this is for you. Also the product is easy to remove and doesn't leave a sticky residue at all, which can't be said for most tapes. I did notice a slight lag in response when I covered my TV LED sensor, so if you're trying to block something that actually senses inputs I would maybe not suggest this. Other than that, excellent product!" —Amazon Customer

    7. A brown sugar–softening bear, because no one wants to heat up some oatmeal or prepare to bake cookies, only to discover the brown sugar is now rock-hard.

    amazon.com

    I timed my morning routine to the nanosecond, and I don't have time to chip away sugar with a pick!

    Get it from Amazon for $5.74 (also available in gingerbread person, maple leaf, and sugar cookie shapes).

    Promising review: "This is the second brown sugar bear I've purchased because they work so well. They are simple to use and very effective. Soak it in water and then place it in your brown sugar container. It will keep the sugar soft and easy to scoop. If you have brown sugar that has already hardened and is like a solid rock, you can place the bear in the container and by the next day you will be able to scoop it again. It's simple, effective, and inexpensive. There is no reason not to get this little bear." —Hannah M.

    8. No-wedgie undies for anyone who wants a no-show pair that'll look ~seamless~ under leggings, but is not about that thong life.

    Amazon

    Get a pack of five from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes S–L and five color sets).

    Promising review: "I honestly love these. I was so skeptical about buying underwear on Amazon. I could not imagine buying underwear without feeling it first. However, these were a huge success. First of all, they fit extremely nicely. The bum area has great coverage so you don't end up accidentally wearing skimpier underwear than you planned. I absolutely love the feel. They are so soft and comfortable. These are described as seamless and this is very accurate. I appreciate a good pair of leggings and I can wear these underwear with any pant (from leggings to skirts, etc). The colors are very nice. The darker colors look like they were a more expensive purchase. The price is not outstanding, but the convenience of having these show up at your doorstep is almost unbeatable. Summary: Great colors, great quality, true to size, seamless and so comfortable!" —Emily

    9. A Squatty Potty to make pooping easier so constipation is no longer your #1 (or should we say #2) consternation.

    Amazon

    If you somehow still don't know what a Squatty Potty is, it's a toilet stool that keeps your feet raised while pooping. ~Going~ in this position is supposed to fully relax your Puborectalis muscle, meaning you have an easier elimination, with no straining. And if you think that's TMI, just try it and see.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    Promising review: "As weird a product as this may be, its AMAZING. When I first got it, my husband thought I was crazy. I explained how the height was supposed to help you go to the bathroom more smooth and without as much frustration. I loved it right away ((also, because I am short so the height helped)). later I heard him telling his friend he used it and was so surprised at how everything just 'came out.' It's awkward, but highly effective!" —Amazon Customer

    If you want a ~prettier~ one for your bathroom, Squatty Potty also makes a teak wood version ($69.99) and a Bamboo version ($67.57).

    10. Grooming gloves designed with nodules on the fingers and palms to make brushing the excess hair from your cat, dog, or even horse more like petting — so your pet won't fidget or get uncomfortable, and your sofa (and clothes!) won't be constantly covered in hair.

    amazon.com

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99 (available in sizes S–XL and three colors).

    Promising review: "I love these gloves. I have three German shepherds that shed constantly and they do not sit still very well, but with these gloves they feel as if they are being petted and don't mind at all. These gloves easily pick up the loose hair and leave my dogs sleek and shiny. Also it is very easy to just shake the hair off the gloves. You don't have to dig the hair out of the grooves like you do with some brushes. I am so happy to have found these." —Margie

    11. A pack of Miracle-Gro plant food *spikes* to revive and nourish all the flowering or foliage plants you seem to just...constantly kill.

    amazon.com

    Each one feeds your green child for up to two months!

    Get a pack of 48 from Amazon for $6.95.

    Promising review: "I have several houseplants that had stopped flowering, so I put a few of these spikes in the pot (there are directions on the back of package for quantity), and approximately a month after using these spikes, my peace lily had three flowers on it, and my African violets plants all got several blooms on them! This worked wonders for my plants that don't flower also! I noticed that my ivy and cactus plants started growing faster, and they became more green and healthy looking. I am very happy with this product, and I will buy it again." —Elizabeth

    12. A pack of Avarelle pimple patches formulated with tea tree oil and calendula oil (to heal and shrink zits faster overnight). AND they come in two sizes — classic circular patches & large, square patches so you can easily treat and shrink clusters of pimples all at once.

    amazon.com

    A lot of reviewers who have also tried Cosrx and Nexcare patches prefer these!

    Get the box of 40 round patches from Amazon for $8.08. OR try their large, rectangular size to tackle multiple pimples at once. Get a pack of eight from Amazon for $8.50.

    Promising review: "I’ve tried so many brands of pimple spots, and these are hands-down the best on the market. I’m a performer at Walt Disney World, and a clear complexion is required. Last night, I put these on a few acne problems (a small cyst, a Whitehead, and a pimple I shouldn’t have picked and has been a bump for about three weeks now.) I just woke up and am writing this review in disbelief. THEY'RE FLAT! Gone! All of them! I could cry I’m so happy. The packaging is also ideal, because it allows you to conveniently and easily peel the stickers off without stretching them out or folding them back on themselves. Do yourself and your complexion a huge favor! Have these on hand for a stubborn zit when you really need help. Make sure you apply them to completely clean and dry skin." —Caitlyn

    13. Or Glossier's Solution, which is an easy-to-use exfoliant chockfull of promising acids (AHA, BHA, and PHA, oh my!) that tackle any skin concern that might be frustrating you. It can reduce acne and dark spots, brighten, improve skin tone and texture, unclog pores, exfoliate, and reduce signs of stress. Like, that's a lot of stuff.

    Glossier

    Get it from Glossier for $24.

    Promising review: "I have been struggling with acne for as long as I can remember and Solution has SAVED my skin. Haven't had a pimple since I started using this last month. My usually oily skin has been so soft and glowing and my years of acne scars are vanishing. 100% worth every penny." —MRB

    We *also* love solution — learn why several BuzzFeeders love it in Here's Why The Mega-Popular Glossier Solution Is Totally Worth Your Money.

    14. Bamboo charcoal shoe deodorizers you can pop into your sweatiest, stinkiest beer-soaked flats or old gym shoes — the smell will be G O N E.

    amazon.com

    They don't mask odors; they also absorb moisture to prevent mold, mildew and bacteria from forming. You can reuse the bags for up to two years — just pop 'em in the sun for an hour every so often to freshen up.

    Get one pair from Amazon for $9.95 (also available for packs of two and three pairs for a discount).

    Promising review: "I have a pair of black leather flats that stank so badly my husband would yell at me if I took them off anywhere near him. But I love the shoes! So I had to find something to make the stench go away without leaving me with an allergic reaction. Mini Moso was the answer. I honestly couldn’t believe it. A few days after placing them in my prized off shoes, I took a whiff from about a foot away. Nothing. I got closer. Nothing. I stuck my nose practically in the shoe. Ok, maybe that’s pushing things, but I’ve got to tell you that 95% of the broken-in leather grossness was gone. So happy!" —Erin

    15. An underwire bra designed specifically (and ingeniously) for big boobs. It has stay-in-place adjustable straps, smooth elastic that'll stay comfy (without showing under tees), super-soft fabric, and structure that'll actually *support* you.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $19.49 (available in sizes 34B-44H and in 13 colors).

    Promising review: "I am in love with this bra! It looks just like the picture — beautiful! My cups don't 'runneth over' if u know what I mean, and I don't bulge out the sides. No more ripping bra off when I get home! I have had it on for six hours today and I forgot I had it on! I have been searching for a bra like this my whole life, even spending up to $100 at Nordstrom and Lane Bryant, and even after getting measured by the 'expert,' my bra still sat in my drawer after one wear. I am going to get a different color every payday! I actually got a little teary eyed, that is how frustrated I had been with bras!" —Sjh

    16. A Rubbermaid Freshworks container to keep produce fresher for wayyyyy longer so you don't try to make a smoothie or salad in the morning, only to see spoiled fruits and veggies.

    17. A pack of houseplant sticky traps to end your gnat problem once and for all. No more stalking them in silence and trying to smack them out of the air.

    amazon.com

    Get a pack of seven traps from Amazon for $5.14.

    Promising review: "After bringing a new houseplant into my home, I started noticing gnats. At first I didn't think much about it, but then they got annoying! Thanks to Buzz Feed's advertisement of this product, I quickly made the connection between the new plant and the arrival of the gnats. This thing has trapped about 100 so far and greatly reduced the number bothering me! (I had no idea one average sized plant could spawn so many gnats!). I replanted it this weekend in new soil and am hoping that helps, but these traps have helped significantly! The plant was from my dad's funeral, so I hate to get rid of it...hoping the new soil will get things under control enough for the traps to take care of the rest." —Missy

    18. A garlic prepping set with a silicone tube (that'll peel the garlic) and a press (that'll mince it) so you can flavor your food without getting stinky fingers.

    Amazon

    Just pop the individual clove in the tube, and roll it against the counter a few times for a quick peel. Than simply push the press down, and your perfeclty minced pieces are ready to use!

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    Promising review: "LOVE this product! I like the size of the garlic chunks that you get with this masher, and I LOVE how easy it is to clean compared to other garlic mashers. I love that you don't need to use your fingers to peel the garlic. My mom has been cooking with garlic with every meal for 50+ years and wants one now too!!" —Mama Miller

    19. A John Frieda hot air brush so you can perfect a sleek *and* voluminous blowout in no time ~flat~ — without juggling a round brush in one hand and a heavy blow drier in the other.

    BuzzFeed

    Get the 1.5-inch brush from Amazon for $39.99 (also available in a one-inch brush).

    Promising review: "OMG this is the BEST HAIR TOOL for haircut with layers!! When I tried to style it at home with a regular blow dryer and round brush I couldn't do it like the my hairstylist — it came out flat and straight. Then I came across this AMAZING brush. I am SOOOOO GLAD I tried it. This product is truly everything!!! It is LIGHTWEIGHT, which makes it very easy to hold, the heat temperature on high is perfect (first i thought it wasn't hot enough, but it's perfect to style hair without causing heat damage), the bristles are soft, hair slides through, does not pull on hair, no breakage at all. The feature that I LOVE is that it has a cool setting to let curls cool down before releasing them (NO NEED TO USE HOT ROLLERS). This hot air brush is so great that I had to purchase one for mom as soon as I was done using it. Cannot say enough good things!" —FashionChic

    To say I love this brush would be an understatement. Check out my full review of the John Frieda hot air brush for all the ~hairy details~.

    20. A round blindspot mirror that'll make merging, changing lanes, and even parallel parking a breeze.

    amazon.com

    Just clean your side mirror with alcohol (to remove outdoor grime or residue), and attach this round mirror — the 3m adhesive will hold strong. And they attach on a pivoting base, so you can adjust them for the perfect view.

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $6.97 (also available in rectangular and square shapes).

    Promising review: "I bought these for mine and my mom's car a while back ago and these little things are great. Since I gotten my license I've hated merging or switching lanes; I never felt good or safe doing it. Since having these its been a blessing, I feel less like a scared new driver. I'm currently encouraging my sister and friends to invest in these too! These are also great for backing up, because you can see exactly how close you are to hitting the car behind. They're helpful when I parallel park in the city, and I like parking backwards, so this great for doing that too." —Mariam Abass

    21. Moisture- and temperature-regulating pillows with a ~Hygro cotton~ shell so you don't wake up in the middle of the night, needing to flip over to the cool side.

    Macy's

    Get them from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $24.97+ each (originally $50+; available in standard and king sizes).

    amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in four sizes and 26 colors and patterns).

    Promising review: "I decided to purchase this pillow case after noticing hair breakage from one too many bleach jobs. I really wasn’t expecting a miracle, but this product has tremendously reduced the breakage! I love the zipper closure. It’s a sturdy zipper and covered with satin. Prevents my pillow from slipping out. It’s easy to toss in the washer and has withstood many washes! I now swear by satin pillow cases and will be ordering more from this brand!" —Nikki D.

    23. A pet-feeding reminder chart so you never have to ask your significant other whether they fed Rufus, only for them to answer "uhhhhhh......."

    amazon.com

    Just slide the toggle over whenever the task is complete, and you can rest easy, knowing your precious pup or favorite feline is neither hungry nor overfed. It comes with magnet and sticker mounting options, so you can affix it right to your fridge *or* directly to the food container.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (also available in black).

    Promising review: "Bought this as my roommate and I kept getting tricked by our cat to double feed her. She can be very deceptive (look how adorable she is)! This product has prevented me from double feeding her twice in the first week of use! Highly recommend. We leave our feeding reminder right on top of her hinged feeding container. 5/5 stars!" —Travis H.

    24. Sweat-resistant silicone grips that'll keep your earbuds or airpods in your ears during even the most intense workouts.

    amazon.com

    Get two pairs (one small and one large) from Amazon for $9.99 (available in three colors).

    Promising review: "I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! I've always had a hard time keeping these crazy little earbuds in my ears, so when I head out to the gym, or anywhere that I want to listen to my playlists, I have to use my big earphones. With these, that is no longer a problem! I would recommend them to ANYONE who works out, runs, walks, or just has a general problem with earbuds." —Green Day Lover

    25. A waterproof, smudge-resistant eyeliner stamp with two sides: a triangular stamp on one end and a felt-tip eyeliner on the other to create the perfect winged liner look in no time flat, i.e., you'll never be late again!

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Get a two-pack (one for each eye) from Amazon for $13.99 (available in four sizes).

    Promising review: "I loved the product. I usually take 15 mins to do my eyeliner perfectly for my dance recitals which include cleaning and re-doing multiple times. But with this eyeliner, I took only five mins to do it in a single go. It lasted really long even in burning hot weather. It looked so beautiful even from a long distance. I loved the product. It's a must-have for all those who love eye makeup." —rasu

    26. Or a mega-pack of precision-tip swabs for correcting eyeliner, applying concealer right around your lipstick line, removing errant mascara marks, and more.

    Amazon

    Get a pack of 600 pointed swabs from Amazon for $8.49.

    Promising review: "Perfect quality. Very firm, helps correct even the minutest slip on your lipstick or eyeliner. Finally something to correct, with great precision, the small mistakes on my L'Oreal Infallible lipstick, to get the perfect lip lines!!! You will use lots of them, so this is not a large quantity. Indispensable tool for makeup! Also, great for nail polish correction!" —Deborah B.

    27. A zip-top bag–filling stand to make putting away leftovers or storing meal-prepped recipes in the freezer so much easier. Just pour right in — no sagging or tipped over bags in sight.

    amazon.com

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $11.35 (also available in larger packs).

    Promising review: "I used three of these to help me make freezer meals for after I have a baby. I can honestly say I don't know how I would have filled the freezer bags without these ingenious baggy holders. I was able to dump veggies, spices, meat, and cans of heavy beans and tomatoes into the bags, and they stood up the entire time without sliding or spilling. One of the bags I stuffed literally to the brim, as full as it could go, and the bag did not fall down. I would definitely recommend these." —Grace S.

    28. A Feed n Wax Wood conditioner that'll not only polish your pieces but ALSO basically erase years of damage (looking at you, accidental drink rings!!).

    amazon.com

    It'll bring out the natural color and sheen of your pieces — whether the wood is finished or unfinished — *and* add a layer of protection.

    All you have to do is apply with a cloth, wait 20 minutes (perfect time for a mid-cleaning snack!) and wipe off the excess.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48.

    Promising review: "OMG! This is the most AMAZING product! We inherited some antique furniture from the '30s that had been in storage forever... it was dry and dirty and not much to look at. I used this product on it and the oak wood literally came alive showing the beautiful grain and texture of the wood. I have since used it on my oak kitchen cabinets and they look AMAZING! I will never use anything else other than this product on my wood surfaces! No greasy feel... fantastic smell!" —Tiffany Sadowski

    29. A Philips sunrise-mimicking light and alarm clock so you wake up gradually, because waking up in wintry darkness just isn't working out for anyone.

    Amazon

    It has 20 brightness settings that slowly increase over 30 minutes so you rise ~with the sun~, feeling energized and ready for the day. Once it's at full brightness, only *then* will the alarm sound go off. Plus, it'll do the same thing in revers to help you wind down at night!

    Get it from Amazon for $115.18.

    Promising review: "This has really made a big difference in how I wake up every morning. On these short winter days, I always have to wake up before sunrise, and that's...challenging. I found myself hitting the snooze button at least three times, leaving very little time for me to get ready and to work on time. Having the sunrise simulation wakes me up gradually and completely. I almost always wake up fully before the music starts and I have not needed the snooze function yet. All of the wake up sounds were pleasant. I especially like the birdsong with flute music, as it reminds me of being in a spa. I like the dusk option for going to sleep. I set it for 30-60 minutes and read until it's too dark and I drop off to sleep. An additional bonus is that since I'm no longer using my cellphone as my alarm clock, I practice better sleep hygiene and keep my cellphone out of the bedroom. It is a significant investment but it has been worth it." —MsEdinger

    Check out a BuzzFeeder's review (#11 in the post) for a first-hand account on how it can make mornings easier.

    30. A SockDock, aka a useful tool you can clip dirty socks to (in pairs!), toss the *whole thing* in the washer and dryer, and remove together so NO SOCK gets lost. And you're not stuck searching for a pair when you're already running late.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $16 (available in five colors).

    Promising review: "Totally obsessed with this! I’ve been using it a few weeks now and have zero complaints! I haven’t lost a single sock since! They always come out paired and completely dried (which was one of my concerns, I wasn’t sure if they were going to dry properly) I would defiantly recommend this! It’s amazing and makes life so much easier! Specially with a toddler and baby on the way!" —Sarah Elizabeth

    31. An outlet timer that'll automatically shut off after one, two, four, or eight hours, because we've all had that "Wait... did I shut off the curling iron/slow-cooker/lava lamp?" moment.

    Amazon

    You can also set it to the "hold" setting if you don't want to use the timer at that moment. Besides curing your curling iron anxiety (which, extremely me) the Amazon reviewer below had the great idea to use it to charge their phone without leaving it plugged in for too long!

    Get it from Amazon for $11.49.

    Promising review: "I love this product. I use it only for my cell phone charger cable so it won't overcharge all night. I set it on for two hours and my phone and I wake up in the morning to a fully charged phone. I've heard its not good for a battery to be connected to a charger for long hours." —Scott

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

    BuzzFeed

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in six colors).

    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 Morlock

    Check out a BuzzFeeder's Tubshroom review for all the deets (and more ~hair raising~ pics).

    33. A clip-on silicone strainer so you never lose a single noodle again trying to carefully pour out your pasta water — or have to hand wash the colander *again*.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (also available in grey).

    Promising review: "I cannot say enough good about this strainer. It fits all my pots from small to huge, even frying pans! I have strainers, colonders, every kind of lid converter...........This strainer is the best ever. When the pot is too heavy for me to hold to drain off the water, with this I can still hold on with both hands, and then when it is mostly drained, I set the pot in the sink to continue to drain. Washes up like a dream, or toss in the dishwasher. I do not know how I lived without this strainer. Now I can get rid of probably 20 items out of my kitchens!" —SGA

    34. A spice *drawer* organizer to turn your messiest part of the kitchen into a clear, easy-to-read assortment of jars and labels. You'll never accidentally add cumin where you meant to add coriander again.

    Amazon

    Spice racks only *wish* they could. These drawer liners are made of a soft foam to keep your jars in the right position (label up!) so you can quickly grab what you need. And you can trim 'em to fit your drawers!

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $14.99.

    Promising review: "This is one of my favorite things I've ever purchased from Amazon! I think this will be my go-to gift for all of my friends who love cooking as much as I do! Freeing up cabinet space and having something that can so easily be rinsed off in the sink makes this a for-sure buy!" —momonono

    35. An ice tray with a spill-proof lid and easy-fill top so you can stack 'em in the freezer — and walk from the sink to the freezer without sloshing all over the place.

    Amazon

    AND it'll keep your cubes from getting that funky freezer smell. AAAAAANNND the actual ice mold itself is flexible so you can pop the cubes out super easily.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in five colors).

    Promising review: "This is fantastic! It can be used for regular ice cubes, or what I actually bought it for, to freeze green smoothies so they can be popped into a travel cup in the mornings. This ice tray is supersized, which is perfect. The cover keeps freezer smells out. The lid has an opening which allows the liquid to be poured in with no chance of spilling. The bottom is made of soft silicone, so the frozen cubes can be popped out with ease, but with a rigid plastic top part so you can handle it without it collapsing. Great design." —donap

    36. A fan-favorite setting spray that'll finally spell the end for having to re-do your full face of makeup (or waste money on those blotting sheets). Your face will stay perfect and shine-free all day and all of the night.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $6.39.

    Promising review: "I’ve been using this for a while, but finally needed to write a review. This morning, I put on my makeup and some generous sprays of this setting spray. Then, I went into the 100+ degree heat and demonstrated a short workout at an outdoor event. Despite drinking as much water as I could handle, I overheated quickly and EMS had to come to my rescue. Between my boyfriend and EMS, there was a small crowd around me: literally pouring ice water on me; mopping my face and neck with cold towels; pressing ice packs on me. This continued for a while and I was sure that my makeup was gone, but this spray kept my face mostly intact! If this spray can keep my makeup on through an encounter with EMS and being essentially submerged in ice water, it can keep yours on through your (hopefully less eventful) day!" —Bugaboo

    37. A set of Shoe Slotz for any Carrie Bradshaw with way too many pairs of pumps to fit into an NYC-sized closet. Just put one shoe on the shelf, top with a ~Shoe Slot~, and stack the other shoe on top. You just DOUBLED your storage space.

    Amazon

    It works with men's, women's, and kid's shoes — heels and flats!

    Get a set of 10 from Amazon for $24.95.

    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?

    38. A scent-free, biodegradable odor eliminator for those stinks you didn't think you'd ever smell the end of. It bonds with ~odor molecules~ to get rid of the stink, without leaving any perfume-y smells behind.

    amazon.com

    Dead mice, run-ins with skunks, pet messes, years of cigarette smoke — reviewers have stopped them ALL with this spray.

    Get a pack of three bottle sizes from Amazon for $19.99.

    Promising review: "I have seen the commercials for others with claims of removing odors (and tried them too) but I have used this for years and will continue too use it. Zero Odor works where all others have failed. The first time I used it we were clean out an apartment to prepare it for new people and the prior tenants had cats...what a strong, offensive odor they left behind. I thought nothing would work and we would have to completely refinish the entire area and that would have cost a fortune, well Zero Odor was a last ditch effort because we had tried about seven or eight other things already, from chemical cleaners (hours of labor) to every type of spray I could find and none of them even put a dent in it, a few masked it for about an hour but that was all they did. I purchased Zero Odor specifically for this problem area, I sprayed everything, walls, floor, ceiling and the closet too. We came back the next day and it was totally free of any odors at al, it was 100% clear and clean. Keep mind the placed smelled so bad before that we had to keep the windows open, well Zero Odor became a part of my cleaning kit from that day on and I will never go without it. This one works, plain and simple. I have no idea how but when everything else failed Zero Odor did it and continues to time after time. Let the others claim whatever they want but this product does exactly what it says with no compromise, not even a hint of the old odor is left behind. No way around this one, it's great stuff." —Stonington

    39. A fan-favorite Wet brush with over 1,000 five-star reviews for a reason. It'll detangle even the most stubborn hair...WITHOUT ripping it from your scalp.

    instagram.com

    Get it from Amazon for $7.49+ (available in six colors).

    Promising review: "Okay, I was skeptical, I've used all sorts of brushes on my hair all my life, never had any make any big difference on my easily tangled hair. I still don't understand what the difference is with this brush, but it just glides so effortlessly through my wet, tangled hair — it's like magic! After so many years of struggling with my hair and using conditioning sprays to help speed the process — crazy that this brush just goes right through!" —L. H. Christenson

    40. A Migrastil roll-on stick to help evaporate your migraine or tension headache within minutes. Just apply the blend of essential oils (including lavender, spearmint, and peppermint) onto your temples, forehead, and the back of your neck — and POOF! Relief is here.

    BuzzFeed / Katy Herman

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    Promising review: "Years ago a massage therapist I went to used a cream at my temples that helped greatly with headaches & nausea. I have tried to find that scent for years. THIS IS IT!! I use it daily on my temples & the back of neck just below my hairline. It helps 100% with the nausea I suffer from meds I take. Many of my headaches I can prevent from going to a migraine by applying again at start of headache. I take so many meds because of autoimmune disease's that I like not having to pop another pill for my headaches. I am the most skeptical person you will find when it comes to homeopathic or oils etc., but this works!!" —DVS

    41. Cable-hugging critters to take a ~bite~ out of the annoyance of fraying cords. I ain't lion when I say I'm tired of having to hold my phone in one position to charge!

    Urban Outfitters

    Just clip 'em around any cable you have to reinforce it!

    Get the original Cable Bite from Urban Outfitters for $6 each (available in 15 animals) or a similar version from Amazon for $6.99 each (available in 21 animals).

    Promising review: "I bought a couple of these to reinforce a cord that has become weak due to normal wear and tear. I was hoping they were functional for a Galaxy phone (which I'm thrilled they are) but had no idea how extremely cute they would be. I've ended up buying SEVERAL more for stocking stuffers." —jwow76

    42. A compact to-go blender that'll whip up a delish smoothie in no time flat — and right in a to-go cup so you can put an end to the "I didn't have time for breakfast!!!" 11a.m. blues.

    Amazon

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $9.40.

    Promising review: "This stuff is great. Dries really fast. Maintains through lots of hand sanitizer, when others start to come off. That’s the selling point for me, but also dries in like 30 seconds. You can put it on wet nail polish (as long as it’s not a thick coat of nail polish), and it dries both in 30 seconds. Amazing stuff. Bought it several times." —Xenakyn

    44. A mold & mildew removing gel, because it seems like the mold and grossness just keeps coming back every time you shower — and that's just no way to start your day. Just squeeze out and let this non-drip gel work its magic overnight — NO s c r u b b i n g.

    amazon.com

    It clings to tile, meaning it'll STAY PUT, killing mold & mildew and keeping it from reappearing later down the road.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    Promising review: "Didn’t think it would work, but it DID with no scrubbing!! My husband didn’t think our grout was originally white, but I knew better. I put this on before bed on a section of grout in the shower, and woke up to gorgeous and bright white, no scrubbing at all the next morning. Just rinse it off. Absolutely buying another bottle. It wasn’t quite enough for my entire shower, but to be fair, we have a lot of small tiles. I think two bottles will get the whole shower floor. Bravo on a great product." —thekuan

    45. A bottle of Fanola purple shampoo that'll neutralize pesky yellow tones and brassiness for platinum locks — all in one to three minutes and *without* a trip to the salon.

    amazon.com

    If you leave it on for longer, you can end up with a lavender tint, which some reviewers love! Check out our deep dive for amazing before-and-afters!

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    Promising review: "I'm not one to leave reviews, but this product deserves it! Holy cow! I was going to go into the salon to brighten my hair up, but after discovering this product I cancelled my appointment. I'm totally in love! This shampoo is not drying at all and just after two washes I achieved my desired results! I can't recommend it enough!" —Rachael

    46. Nesting food storage containers in a rainbow of colors to make matching the lid easier than ever (each container has a dot with the same color as the lid right on the bottom!) — and these take up, like, *no* room in your cabinets.

    Amazon

    You know that thing when you're prepping ingredients or packing away leftovers and you just CAN'T find the lid that fits?! No more. You can freeze, 'em, microwave 'em, and pop 'em in the top rack of your dishwasher, too!

    Get the set of six containers and lids from Amazon for $34.93 (also available in smaller sets).

    Promising review: "We have had these now for over a year. They are wonderful. They are BPA free, they store food well, they dishwash well, they freeze well, they microwave well, and they take up very little room. We no longer have lids without containers, we no longer have containers without lids. Ours seal really well, so I can't speak to other reviewers' issues about this. But we love ours and I'm actually here to buy a second set." —Tasman Truckee

    47. A flat colander that'll fit right into your sink for easy ingredient prep without scraps falling into your drain (and getting all gross).

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in three colors).

    Promising review: "Brilliant design. Great for washing berries or green beans -- and also great for catching the snippings, too. It's so nice to be able to peel onions, trim radishes, and other vegetables — without having to scoop the peels up by hand. Just peel/snip into the sink and dump all the debris just once. Love it." —Kathryn T.

    48. A durable honeycomb drawer insert to corral your socks, scarves, ties, undies, etc. in style — so you can actually see which is which when getting dressed in the morning.

    amazon.com

    They snap together for easy assembly, and expand and contract to fit whatever drawer shape you have.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    Promising review: "Perfect way to organize socks and make it fun to open the drawer and be like 'what socks am I gonna wear today?' And all the colors and patterns beam back at you. If you have boring socks then I would say screw it because you are boring." —Esq

    49. A mesh shower caddy so you finally have room for all four conditioners you rotate through, your loofah, and shampoo brush — without getting anything moldy or mildewy. These'll keep everything aired out and dry.

    amazon.com

    Just hang it from your shower curtain rod, and voila!

    Get it from Amazon for $10.92.

    Promising review: "This mesh shower organizer is SO useful! I was living in an apartment with a VERY tiny shower with no place to put a shelf to hold toiletries. There wasn't even space in the shower to bend down and get things off the floor. This 100% fit the bill! I am so happy I purchased it! It made my life so much easier, because all of my soap and hair products and razor were right there rather then me having to find some way to bend down and get the things I needed. Now that I have moved out of that apartment I hung this organizer in my boyfriend's normal bathtub/shower and he loves it. It's still really useful even in larger spaces as well. Since it's mesh it dries quickly and doesn't get moldy and gross." —Loretta Ferguson
