    1. A super-speedy wine stain remover so you can quickly undo Sandra's sloshing all over your pristine white couch and carpet, without losing your ~temper-nillo~.

    amazon.com

    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." —Persian Tess

    Get it from Amazon for $6.

    2. A microwave rice steamer to make burnt stovetop rice a thing of the past. Just add your grain, water, and pop in the micro!

    amazon.com

    Unlike traditional plug-in rice cookers, you can throw this whole thing in the wash, so there's no potential for mold or other grossness.

    Promising review: "I've had this for seven months now, and I think it's still my favorite tool in my entire kitchen. I eat a ton of rice, and I love how easy this is to use and how easy it is to clean. I put in one cup of white rice and two cups of water, and microwave it for 15 minutes. It comes out consistent every time. In the past, I've cooked rice on the stove and used an electronic rice cooker, and I prefer this microwave one to both. I hated how messy cooking on the stove is, and my electric cooker got mold down inside the part that you can't wash. With this, there's no mess, and there's nowhere you can't clean or that can trap mold or bacteria. I can throw every part of it into the dishwasher after I'm done with it. It's awesome! I wish I'd had this back in college." —C. Stone

    Get it from Amazon for $12.59.

    3. A new (thinner! waterproof!) version of the Kindle Paperwhite so you can *instantly download* your next read. No walking to the bookstore or waiting two days for your paperback to arrive with Prime shipping.

    amazon.com

    Personal note: I have the last edition of the Kindle Paperwhite, and I love it so much. It's SO LIGHT that I keep it in my bag at all times — you never know when you're gonna have a spare 15 minutes for a chapter or two.

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99+.

    4. A drain snake with over 4,000 micro hooks and a slim design to shimmy down any drain (you don't even need to remove the cover) and snag all the hairs and goop that's clogging the system — in one quick pull.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought one of these because of the reviews and I thought, with six kids I know we have slow drains. So I break it out on a Saturday night and started with my bathroom sink. OH MY GOSH! Disgustingly amazing. In two seconds I pulled out a massive hair/soap clog. It was truly amazing and so gross! I went to work on the other bathroom drains and they weren't nearly as amazing or as quick but I pulled a bunch of dried hair out of the kids' tub. So after five drains, I had my fun. I've spent a small fortune on Drano type products that never seem to work. I won't buy them again. I was even so amazed I shared the nasty pic on Facebook and didn't think twice about somebody judging me. Get this. Be prepared to throw it away as you're not going to want to clean it." —Jennifer R. Little

    Get it from Amazon for $4.06.

    5. 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.

    BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "YESS!!! I cannot LIVE without this product. I have always had pretty bad acne and every product I’d use would result in either a break out or just constant irritation. This product can be used with JUST WATER to get literally all of your makeup off with zero skin irritations! I use it in the AM and PM and one rag will usually last me a full seven days before needing a wash. I have about three or four of these because I cannot live without them. My acne has become a lot better by using this as opposed to cleaners and crazy products for my skin. Who knew a clean rag and water could actually do so much?!?" —Nina Aristo

    Get it from Amazon for $20 (available in pink, black, and purple).

    Psst! This won best mid-priced makeup remover on BuzzFeed Reviews, too!

    6. Or a Foreo Luna Mini 2, a silicone face-cleansing brush designed to totally remove your makeup, dirt, and oil, AAAAND gently exfoliate your skin in just 60 seconds (I know).

    ^That's me! I love this handy lil' device SO much. Check out my in-depth review for all the deets!

    Promising review: "I really regretted this purchase at first, seemed like it was just a vibrator, the shape was weird considering the angles of a face, the two different sides felt the same. BUT THEN....... I dried my face with a white towel and there was not a speck of makeup left on the towel and I didn't have a drop of mascara raccoon eye look left on my face. This is the cleanest my face has ever been. I will keep using it" —hine0108

    Get it from Amazon for $139 (available in six colors).

    7. A tub of extra large, heavy duty cleaning wipes to get tough jobs done in no time flat. No spraying, scrubbing, rinsing, scrubbing, and rinsing again. One wipe = the job is done.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I think these wipes are made out of magic — because they can clean just about anything with very little effort! One wipe cleaned my ENTIRE BATHTUB, including the hard water buildup and some residual soap scum. The wipe stayed wet for the entire use, and there was absolutely no sweating involved. I hate cleaning but I was so pumped about the tub I took wipe #2 to my hood vent and good golly it's like it's brand new. I've told everyone I know to buy these. I know they're pricey but I swear the magic is there folks." —Jen M.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.94.

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

    amazon.com

    Check out our deep dive for amazing before-and-afters!

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    9. An Instant Pot for whipping up press-the-button-and-watch-the-magic-happen dishes and meals. Use it to make low-effort rice, pressure cooked dishes, slow cooked dishes, and so so so so so much more.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I can't believe that I love this thing. All my friends were getting them and raving about it. But I absolutely hate my slow cooker, and I figured this device would be much the same. I finally decided to get one when my friend posted that she had made amazing carnitas in it. My husband is Mexican and carnitas are his favorite food, so I thought I'd get one to try it out and hope everyone was right. The first thing I made (after the water test) was the carnitas and they KNOCKED OUR SOCKS OFF. Then I made rice and it came out better than my old rice cooker. Tonight I made ribs and the entire family went wild. I've had this Instant Pot for roughly 48 hours and I'm already using it for a fourth time right now to make oatmeal. Get one. You will not be sorry." —Regina Croskey-Corcoran

    10. A pet hair–removing roller with a patented brush design (and *no* adhesive strips) to rid your lovely black sofa of all your furry friend's shedding in a quick roll — so you can get back to cuddling together.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We live in a household that contains two humans, two dogs, and two cats. It's a real Noah's Ark furnished with a black sectional couch. Our dogs absolutely hate the vacuum. So much so they will attack the cleaner head with their vicious bite even before we power it on. This makes the task of cleaning our couch extremely unpleasant and nearly impossible. Thanks to Chom Chom, we no longer have this problem! With a simple, quick, SOUNDLESS sweep, we're able to keep our couch pet-hair-free in blissful peace. This tool does an amazing job picking up pet hair but not so much with crumbs. We were so impressed, we gifted these as Christmas presents for all of our pet-loving friends." —Magpie

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    11. A ~Satisfyer Pro 2~ that'll really live up to its name, helping you get off in no time flat thanks to a whopping 11 different pulsing and suction settings.

    amazon.com

    And it's totally waterproof! You might say that it's ~cliterally amazing~.

    Promising review: "I was in the market for something new so I started reading reviews. There is a similar one to this that is much more expensive but the reviews were both great. I decided for this one and IT WAS NOT A MISTAKE. I was off within a minute I think. Very easy to use and to charge. It looks like a facial cleaning tool, so not obvious what it really is. And OMG. Throw away the vibrators that leave you numb THIS is the next best thing to sliced bread." —TL

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95.

    12. A mini steamer to make short work of wrinkles in the morning. How short? It heats up in 90 SECONDS and releases creases and set wrinkles even faster.

    BuzzFeed, amazon.com

    I have this steamer and love it, too! Learn more in my full review: I’m Not Joking, This Mini Clothing Steamer Will Help You Be A Better Adult.

    Promising review: "I have never successfully ironed anything in my life! I have only attempted to iron something once so I constantly live in wrinkled clothes....or I did. Now with this amazing steamer I don't have to worry about that anymore, and it's so quick and easy to use! Fill with water, warm, and point at clothes that need some work done. It's so quick too that I am able to use it quick before leaving for work. Plug it in, and it instantly begins to heat the water. And then it takes only moments to steam out the wrinkles. It also comes with a travel bag! So glad I bought this!! Now I will look way more put together!" —Sarah Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99.

    13. A 10-in-1 chopper and storage set so you can take the stress out of ingredient prep — for carrots, cheese, or any other ingredient! You can use it to chop, dice, julienne, grate, and more with one press. ~Chop chop!~

    amazon.com

    And when you're done, just store the attachments inside the container. Easy peasy. Sorry, but you're about to lose the "I was chopping onions" excuse for why you're crying.

    Promising review: "I can't chop, slice, or dice to save my life, so this has been a blessing. I now no longer panic when a recipe calls for it. It slices, dices and chops everything from tomatoes to potatoes. The best part? It's easy to use and compact. It all stores within itself so I don't have to hunt around for a million pieces when I need it. Just put the appropriate plate on, press the handle down and bam. You are good to go." —C&M

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99.

    14. A pack of pimple patches to stop acne IN ITS TRACKS. They protect your skin, preventing further damage or reinfection, while absorbing oil and pus to shrink the zit and reduce redness, helping it heal *so* much faster.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "OMG. You. guys. Meet my new Holy Grail product for handling breakouts. If you have cystic acne (or any acne) that takes forever to go away, and it's itchy and gross while your spot treatment works at drying it up (and eats away at your skin), these. are. for. you. These pimple patches literally suck the gunk right out of your monstrosity of a zit. It's painless (soothing to the spot, in fact) and protects your face from when you make it worse by accidentally brushing up against it while a) washing your face, b) scratching a spot-treatment-induced itch, or c) literally anything else. These take care of the problem while letting you get on with life. There's no scarring afterwards, they can be worn under makeup, and don't come off when you're asleep. I also think these have prevented my current breakout from spreading and taking over my face (just when I'd gotten things under control, too). Worth every penny. I'll take a thousand, please." —ElWha

    Get a 24-pack from Amazon for $4.95.

    15. A quick-drying top coat so you can finally stop saying "oh sheet!" when you see the indents pressed into your fresh manicure when you wake up in the morning. This baby'll have you polish fully set looooong before you go to bed (like, in a few minutes after applying, max!).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "NEVER GETTING MY NAILS PROFESSIONALLY DONE AGAIN. I love having long nails. I do not like spending fifty bucks just to get them painted. I tried the gel polish, with gel top coat; I tried the gel system with the lamps; I tried every polish out there. My hands get washed hundreds of times daily. This stuff is unbelievable. It really works the way they say it does. I applied it about 1-2 minutes after finishing a second coat of color and within minutes it had bonded and set and my nails stay shiny and polished for over a week. That is not the full two weeks claimed, but I am unusually hard on my nails so over a week is AWESOME. I immediately ordered several more." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $6.77.

    16. A Revlon one-step drying brush with a unique oval-shaped barrel so you can get super close to your scalp for smooth hair and majorly boosted volume at the roots — in THREE MINUTES like the reviewer pictured here!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Gotta love Amazon Prime!! I just received this and OMG I'm in LOVE!! I'm known for air drying my hair because its super fine but VERY thick and takes forever to dry. Forget how long it takes to style it; I have wavy hair in the back and it falls straight in the front so I have to fight with a round brush, blow dryer and most days a straight iron too! Air drying in the winter doesn't always work- especially on days like today when it feels like -15!! Well I've seen reviews for this bad boy and decided to give it a try. In 3 minutes and 36 seconds I went from towel dried hair to styled!! All I used was a little argan oil on my ends and bam! I am dried, styled and ready for my day!" —Holly D.

    Get it from Amazon for $54.99.

    17. A microwave omelet maker to upgrade your morning routine. ~Omelet you finish~, but this might be the easiest way to make a healthy breakfast of all time. OF ALL TIME.

    amazon.com

    Mix up your eggs, add ingredients, cook in the microwave. That's it!.

    Promising review: "I love this thing! I've had it for about a month now and I use it almost everyday. I love western omelettes, but I hated cooking them. Now I just throw my cheese, onion, green peppers, and ham in here with the eggs and in a couple of minutes, I'm eating. I do have to cook it a little longer than it says, but I do throw everything in it but the kitchen sink. Wish I had found this a long time ago." —RayRay

    Get it from Amazon for $14.79.

    18. A stainless steel electric corkscrew that'll open a bottle in seconds, seriously reducing the amount of time you have to wait before having a glass of wine.

    amazon.com

    It comes with a cool charging stand that glows blue, and the opener can open up to 30 bottles on a single charge.

    Promising review: "I had one of the earliest electric wine openers, but it finally gave up the ghost. Boy, am I glad now! This new one is fantastic! It's really easy to use, takes no effort — you don't have to hang onto the bottle so it doesn't spin, like my old one — and it looks attractive on the counter." —Mary

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    19. A Two-Minute Mornings journal with just a few key questions you can fill out quickly (even before you have coffee) so you can get that immediate *I just got something done* feeling — in just 120 seconds.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Received this book as a birthday gift. It quickly became a favorite morning practice. It's simple and quick and creates powerful intention and focus for my day. Because I've enjoyed it so much, I bought several copies to give to family and friends as holiday gifts. Highly recommend it!" —C LARA

    Get it from Amazon for $9.25.

    20. Instyler's Glossier straightening brush, a tourmaline ceramic tool that'll smooth and sleek-ify even the curliest hair in no time flat — without *making* it flat.

    BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This brush really does the job and is a better alternative for flat irons( for me personally). It took me just 20 minutes to straighten my hair instead of one hour with a traditional straightener. Love the result!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $70.58.

    I happen to L O V E this tool myself! Check out my full review here (#2)!

    21. Extra large, biodegradable body wipes for when you need that shower-clean feeling, like STAT, but don't have access to one.

    amazon.com

    In addition to camping and post-gym use, several reviewers recommend them for post-surgery convenience, too!

    Promising review: "Great product! Used them on a four-day camping trip where there was no running water (showers or toilets). These wipes worked so well! They work amazing when you’re covered in days of SPF, bug spray, campfire ash, sweat, etc.! I used them on face and body (and rear-end... sorry not sorry, we all poop!) I felt refreshed after using them, especially when I saw how much dirt they got off my skin. The wipes still retain their moisture after days of opening/reopening. The fact that they are biodegradable is a huge plus! I would definitely recommend this product to anyone, and not just campers! Will definitely order again!" —Ryan

    Get a pack of 32 wipes from Amazon for $8.97.

    22. A vented microwave food steamer, because on weeknights, cooking is hard. And eating healthy-ish food is even harder. Let your microwave do the work tonight.

    amazon.com

    It's freezer- and microwave-safe (duh), so you can prep a meal for the freezer and just pop it in to heat up! And it works with veggies, fish, and poultry, so you're on your way to a complete meal.

    Promising review: "If you are looking for a product that can serve up meals and leftovers that protects flavor, texture, and color... then this is the brand for you. A year ago I purchased two and they look amazingly new to this day. It's also perfect for meats, poultry, fish, pasta, you name it...it will cook, steam and reheat to perfection. The covers are clear and if you are wondering what would happen with tomato sauce and similar sauces and foods that could splatter on the inside of the lid while being microwaved to cause it to discolor, not to worry; it won't stain!" —Bach

    Get the large size (pictured) from Amazon for $10.99 (available in three sizes).

    23. A handy-dandy silicone paw cleaner designed to fully (but gently) remove dirt, mud, sand, ice melt and whatever else from your furry friend's feet pronto – and without the hassle of scrubbing.

    amazon.com

    You'll *both* be happier.

    Promising review: "I cannot say enough good things about this product! I have two 50lb dogs and a backyard that gets muddy pretty quick. It was always a struggle for my wife and I to clean their paws when they came back into the house, but with the Portable Dog Paw Cleaner, we have been able to clean their paws quickly and efficiently! We used to have to try and get them to dip their paws in a bowl of water and they would flinch or move and water would go everywhere. Not to mention we had to use our hands to scrub the dirt off their paws. What used to take 20 minutes, now takes 5 minutes. No mess and much faster. Fantastic product!" —Frank

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in two sizes).

    24. A Remington tapered curling wand that'll heat up in 30 SECONDS and create gorgeous waves so you can head out the door in no time. ~Wave~ hello to all that sleeping-in time you now have.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I never ever ever ever ever do my hair. Literally. I decided to buy a curling wand after looking at all of the great reviews it had. I looked at CHI and other expensive brands too, but they had nowhere near the reviews this wand did. When I saw the amazing reviews that people had left I knew I should give it a shot. HOLY CRAP GUYS this wand is amazing! I would have paid $150 for this thing! I do my hair literally all the time now, and it takes me 15 minutes at the most, and is way prettier than straightening it. Plus, you can use a wand several different ways to give you a different look. So I can go from southern belle curls to sexy voluminous curls in no time. I'm seriously considering buying another just in case I love this one or it breaks. And about burning yourself, this is my first wand and I still haven't burnt myself, and I don't use the glove either, so don't be nervous, just pay attention!" —Shelby B.

    Get it from Amazon for $21.73.

    25. A miracle-adjacent carpet stain remover so you can banish wine stains, pet stains, and what-the-heck-even-is-that stains — WITHOUT rinsing or vacuuming. Aka your roommate won't even *know* you spilled in the first place.

    amazon.com

    Enjoy this before and after photo of this stain remover WIPING OUT an "IDK how long this has been there" cat vomit stain. Gross! But also amazing! And btw: it also works on upholstery, woodwork, and even walls.

    Promising review: "This is by far THE BEST carpet cleaner out there!! I love this product! Do you have the following on your carpet...Old stains? Ketchup? Ice cream? Pet potty, marker, weird odd stains that shouldn't be there but your kids deny they did it... This is your product! I was desperate to get the stains out from the messy kids. I didn't spray it, I poured this on the stain enough to get it super wet. Walked away for abt 3-5 mins to soak on the old stains and scrubbed it with a hard bristle brush. And boom no more stains!!!!!! Seriously. I'm buying in bulk. LOVE this stuff. Product arrived quickly and brand new." —Sandra McDade

    Get it from Amazon for $16.43.

    26. A set of toaster-friendly bags perfect for whipping up an ooey gooey grilled cheese when you can't really manage the whole stove thing. Plus they're dishwasher safe, so you don't need to do any washing up by hand!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These things actually work. I was skeptical about how effective they would be. I was expecting the cheese to pool at the bottom or for them to be extremely hard to clean. Neither is the case. They take a little bit of experimenting to figure out what the right toaster setting is for good toasted bread with just the right amount of cheese being melted. Supposedly you can make 150 sandwiches using this set of three bags. Definitely worth the purchase given the low cost, ease of use, and ease of storage." —Franklin Hood

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $9.49.

    27. A HyperChiller iced beverage maker that'll cool hot drinks by up to 130° in 60 seconds with zero dilution. So you can brew hot coffee, and then sixty seconds later, have a perfect iced drink ready to go!

    amazon.com

    You can use it for anything from wine to tea to scotch, too!

    Promising review: "I took a look at this product, did some research and was skeptical. How could a coffee (beverage) chiller be worth over $30 dollars? Was it possible that this product was so revolutionary when I've been making iced coffee with two ingredients for decades? The answer is very simple: this product delivers. Simple to use. Easy to clean. It allows the novice, home barista to make a quality, undiluted cup of iced coffee. Brew your coffee using your preferred method; pour the coffee in the previously frozen HyperChiller; wait a minute or two; add whatever accompaniments your heart desires; enjoy the best damned cup of iced coffee you will ever experience from the comfort of your home." —Chuck Ghoulie

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    28. A ~Fasta Pasta~ cooker to make perfectly al dente pasta right in the microwave — no waiting for the pot to boil. Plus, the lid doubles as a strainer, so you really won't dirty any extra dishes!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this microwave pasta cooker at a time when I did not have a stove. Even though I have a stove now, I still use this cooker for dinner for myself sometimes because it works so well and quickly! The pasta comes out very soft and perfectly cooked when instructions are followed. When the pasta is done, the lid is used to drain the cooker of water and works very well. Pasta is the only thing I have cooked in this product, but there are a lot of other things you can cook in it. I highly recommend this to any college student or adult who needs a fast microwave pasta cooker!" —Kelsi Murphy

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    29. An Instax instant camera for printed photographs perfect for sharing with friends or using to decorate — all in a ~snap~.

    amazon.com

    It has a selfie mirror to bring the instant camera to 2018, and a macro lens adapter so you always get the perfect close-up.

    Promising review: "I'd been toying with the idea of getting a Polaroid for a really long time and finally decided to make it a gift to myself. I did not make a mistake! I ADORE this camera and so does everyone else around me. It's the envy of the town, lol. People are always asking me to take pics. The quality is SUPURB. Extremely artistic, clear images come from this tiny thing. I'm thoroughly impressed and happy all around. It's really easy to use, the directions are straightforward, and the best part about it is that it shows you what setting it needs to be on based on the sensors for light (i.e. in a house, in sunshine, in shade, and so on). I have no complaints!" —Jess

    Get it from Amazon for $56 (available in five colors).

    There are tons and tons of cool film types you can buy too — black and white, sepia, with cool borders, etc. Check out the full selection on Amazon to take your pic!

    These'll help appease the little Veruca Salt inside of us all.
