    37 Things That'll Save You From Yourself

    These trustworthy problem-solvers 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 mold & mildew removing gel, because you don't need to get your whole shower redone when this is in your life — even if you haven't cleaned your tub in a whiiiiiile. Just squeeze out and let this non-drip gel work its magic overnight — NO scrubbing.

    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 2 bottles will get the whole shower floor. Bravo on a great product." —thekuan

    2. A set of makeup-removing cloths to remove every single trace of dirt and makeup (even waterproof formulas!) with just water. Going to bed with a full face of foundation on? That can end now.

    Amazon

    And the cloths are super soft, so you won't have to resort to harsh scrubbing that can dry out your face.

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $3.99.

    Promising review: "This product... I have no clue how this works, but it does! Let me start by saying I was wearing a full face of make up. I mean foundation, contour highlight, eyeliner, seriously the whole nine yards. All I did was wet it and wiped my face, my jaw literally dropped. This is hands down my favorite make up remover at the moment. The best part is that they are reusable so you don't have to keep buying those expensive disposables that leave your face feeling greasy. And honestly, four dollars? Just buy them. Trust me, you won't regret it." —Heather and Ryne Griffith

    3. A plant-based, paraben-free shampoo so you can feel good about *finally* washing caked-on foundation out of your favorite tools without irritating sensitive skin or leaving behind residue. The formula'll even leave the bristles soft and conditioned.

    amazon.com

    AND it's cruelty-free and the bottle is made from recycled plastic.

    Get it from Amazon for $5.29.

    Promising review: "This is the best brush shampoo I've ever used. I've used brush shampoos from high-end/luxury lines, too, and they did not work as well as this. First and most importantly for me, there is no scent! I absolutely hate when companies put heavy perfume in products that end up touching or going near the face. When washing brushes with shampoo that is heavily perfumed, that just ends up irritating my sinuses whenever I'm using the brushes to apply makeup. So awful. This is not like that at all, so I can use my makeup brushes without having sinus/allergy trouble. It cleans extremely well! No more going over and over again like with using other makeup brush shampoos. A little goes a long way, too, so it is extremely economical. The value is awesome. I highly recommend this brush shampoo and will continue purchasing it." —L.L.

    4. A borderline miraculous shoe-cleaning kit to erase the damage you've inflicted on your favorite kicks, whether they're leather, nubuck, suede, canvas, vinyl etc. You *knew* you shouldn't have worn them to that muddy festival.

    amazon.com

    Just add on a little bit of the concentrated cleaner and water to the included brush and scrub away — the blend of saddle soap, oils, and conditioners will gently banish dirt, grime, and even grease and grass stains.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.97.

    Promising review: "It works great! I was a little unclear on what exactly I could use this shoe cleaner on when I ordered it, but I trusted the reviews and went for it. Turns out, this shoe cleaner works on just about anything. I cleaned up all my daughter's outgrown shoes to get them ready for consignment, and this stuff cleaned the whole lot! It worked on everything from Crocs and jellies to Uggs and Birkenstocks. I still can't figure out how something so powerful when cleaning canvas and rubber could somehow melt into suede and leather without leaving a trace. They should call it Pink Mystery Shoe Cleaner, if you ask me. I still have 95% of the bottle left, by the way. I definitely think I got my money's worth! Nice that they threw in the brush, too." —Beth C.

    5. A super bitter-tasting clear polish that'll help you finally quit that nail-biting habit so your fingernails can grow long and strong. Time to treat yourself to a manicure!

    amazon.com

    It's totally harmless *and* shine-free, so it won't look like anything's on your nails. It's also great to help kids stop sucking on their thumbs.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.50.

    Promising review: "I've always had trouble biting my nails. I read lots of reviews on different products and decided to go with this one. The product is the most disgusting thing that I have applied on my nails...but it worked wonders. After 30 years, for the first time my nails have grown and I love it. I applied it every day for two straight weeks. I will occasionally apply it if I feel like I'm going to bite them. Highly recommended!!!" —A_Emilio

    Learn more about it — and read more compelling reviews — in This Miracle Polish Just Might Get You To Stop Biting Your Nails.

    6. A set of three scrubbing attachments you simply add to any power drill to make cleaning your tub, floor, appliances, or even the wheels of your car ridiculously fast and easy.

    Amazon / amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $14.96.

    Promising review: "I bought this brush a long time ago and it sat unused. Last week, I finally pulled it out to clean the floor of a very dirty fiberglass bathtub. What a great little tool! A job that easily would have taken me a half hour with a regular brush and Comet, took about five minutes and with no smelly harsh chemicals. I am really kicking myself for not trying it months ago. Now, I'm planning to buy one for each of my kids for Christmas." —xxxxx111000

    7. A dozen Bottle Bright tablets for deep cleaning 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. That mug that's been sitting at your desk a little too long? Now you don't have to throw it away in shame

    amazon.com

    Just plop one tablet in and let it sit for a few hours or overnight. The foaming action will power away gross stuff, residue, and seemingly permanent odors while you get some beauty sleep.

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $8.

    Promising review: "My husband drinks about 3-4 cups of tea a day. He uses stainless steel mugs that stain horribly. No amount of soaking or scrubbing would get them clean. I set our electric kettle to 200 degrees and poured the hot water over the tablets, filling the mug to the top. I left them in the sink overnight, and all I had to do was dump the dirty water out! No soap or scrubbing at all, and they were like new! I will definitely re-purchase. P.S. Thanks for the recommendation, BuzzFeed!" —Rachel

    8. A bottle of all-natural, plant-based Puracy stain remover powered by enzymes to completely remove the most annoying stains (we're talking grass, blood, tomato, oil, sweat, and more!). Spray on and let sit overnight for the toughest spots.

    BuzzFeed / Yi Yang

    And it's totally biodegradable too.

    Get a pack of two bottles from Amazon for $18.99.

    Promising review: "This stain remover keeps working again and again on clothing that I thought for sure was ruined. It works best if you rub it in with an old toothbrush and let it sit for a few minutes, overnight is best in my experience. In some cases, the enzymes work by themselves and dissolve the stain before the item is even washed. This stuff works better than every Pinterest method that I have tried - including Dawn dish soap, baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, etc.! The mini bottle are perfect for keeping one at work or in the car and I purchase the refill bag to fill these small bottles and the larger spray bottle that we keep at home." —Amanda

    9. A scratch-removing car restoration kit with a buffing pad and polish to make those door-scraping accidents in the parking lot a worry of the past. Your car will look brand-new, but you won't have to spend the big bucks.

    amazon.com

    It buffs away scraped-on paint and minor scratches — if you can feel the scratch with your fingernail, you'll need to actually go to your local body shop.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    Promising review: "Fast shipping and results! I turned too sharp in a parking ramp and my back door scrapped along a purple pillar in the ramp. This happened a good year ago, and I never got around to taking care of the ugliness. My husband gave me so much crap, and I came across to this product, read the reviews, and ordered. It only took me about 20 minutes to get my 'after' results. It did, however take a lot of elbow grease. Ladies, don’t waste your time and money at the dealership. This product saved me over $500!" —S.R.

    10. A collagen-infused ~protein treatment~ for an intense at-home mask that'll help your strands look and feel less damaged in just five minutes, even after you've gotten *very* heavy-handed with the flat iron. It's basically a time machine for your hair is what I'm saying.

    BuzzFeed / Bek O'Connell

    *one reviewer says it's even BETTER than Olaplex (which is over three times the price!).*

    This is the same brand that makes the MIlky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask so many people swear by (and it looks damn cool).

    Get it from Amazon for $7.97.

    Promising review: "I've used this twice so far and I just ordered two more tubes. It's amazing. My hair hasn't been this soft since I was a child. The most amazing part is that while it adds luster and softness, my hair isn't greasy at all. I have straight hair that has become damaged/frizzy from coloring and highlighting. I LOVE this conditioner." —Nancy

    And check out the BuzzFeeder pictured above's review for her first-hand experience (it's #1 in the post)!

    11. 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

    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 $9.44 (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

    12. A grocery list pad you can check off as you run out of items, making getting home and screaming, "Oh shit, I forgot the eggs?!" a thing of the past.

    Amazon

    Add a little method to the madness of your next grocery run.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.70.

    Promising review: "This is the best. I can't express how much better this has made my grocery shopping experience — faster, more organized, and more comprehensive. No more 'oh, what else do we need?' brainstorming sessions at home, and no more 'we have to walk down every aisle to make sure we didn't forget something' when you're at the store. It makes meal planning easy and generally hits on most of the things I need at the store. I only wish it were truly customizable for MY general shopping needs — that would be the perfect shopping list." —Reasonable Person

    13. A Rubbermaid Freshworks container to keep produce fresher for wayyyyy longer. Forgot you bought those strawberries last week? It'll be ok.

    BuzzFeed / Natalie Brown

    The vents regulate the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide and keeps moisture away so your strawberries taste freshly-picked days and days and days... and days later.

    Get a four-cup rectangular container from Amazon for $9.99 or a larger 11-cup square container for $11.79.

    Promising review: "We bought one of these just to try them out. We live in Montana and the veggies just don't seem to last as long as they did when we lived in AZ or WA. I put some baby spinach in one of the containers and nine days later the spinach literally looks as good as the day I bought it. I bought a three-pack from Amazon and just threw a bunch of mixed berries in one and broccoli in another. I am extremely happy with my purchase." —pettyolives

    Check out our full review of these game-changing containers!

    14. A set of packing cubes to keep you from shelling out cash on checking a bag when you can't quit your over-packing ways. You can fit these (and the tons of clothes compressed inside) right in your carry-on!

    amazon.com

    It comes with a laundry bag to separate your dirty clothes on your way back, and the cubes have mesh tops so you can see what's inside!

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $19.99 (available in 10 colors and patterns).

    Promising review: "These packing cubes exceeded my expectations!!!! I was able to pack for a seven-day cruise: seven day outfits, seven evening dresses, six swimsuits and six swim cover ups. Along with 10 pairs of undergarments, four PJ sets, and three bras. It was crazy. I highly recommend! I used a Vera Bradly weekend tote to fit my packing cubes and then a separate bag for shoes, toiletries, etc. worked perfectly! Very happy with my purchase." —Elias Zuloaga

    15. A mini fabric steamer that'll demolish wrinkles after you've left your clothes on The Chair (you know which one I'm talking about) for days on end. Sloppy dressing, you have met your match.

    BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

    It heats up in 90 seconds, which for my snooze button–hitting ass, is basically a miracle. It's v lightweight (about one pound), and the water tank is the perfect size to thoroughly steam up to five-ish garments, making it a no-brainer for a quick pass over a blouse OR when steaming a whole bunch of clothes the night before a vacation. Tl;dr: I LOVE THIS STEAMER!

    Get it from Amazon for $25.97.

    Promising review: "This product has changed my daily routine in THE most positive way!! I don't go ANYWHERE in clothing that is not crisp, clean and professional looking, but the time, and money, that I have to invest to look this way can be VERY time consuming and costly. NOT ANY MORE!!! I love the size, portability and ease of use. I can now lessen my trips to the dry cleaner (and the requisite hunting for dry cleaner coupons). If this pup even acts like it's getting ready to stop working, I'll be online ordering a new one to be delivered STAT!!" —Snowdenr

    This thing is legit one of the best things I've bought on Amazon — check out my review for all the deets!

    16. A set of tab divider sticky notes so you can make notes *on top* of your notes and find them easily, rather than scrambling at the last minute and looking through all 27 notebooks scattered around your room.

    Amazon

    Perfect for studying for midterms and final exams or for use in library books or textbooks you have to return.

    Get a set of 60 notes in assorted colors from Amazon for $3.71.

    Promising review: "I purchased these for my day planner but use them for so many other things. These stick well and are in six bright colors. They come in a little book like case that helps keep them clean and protected when not in use. They are easy to peel and stick and then remove again as necessary. They do not damage books or papers at all. I use these for my day planner, noting recipes in cookbooks, taking notes in various craft books, taking notes on important documents so I remember what I need to do with them later. I will be buying these again when I run out." —Sarah Lee

    17. A motion-detecting toilet light that'll glow any of 16 colors — so you don't miss the bowl no matter what, trip over cords in the dark, stub your toe, or make another 3 a.m. bathroom trip mishap.

    Amazon

    With a 4.5/5-star rating and over 2,800 five-reviews, you know you can trust it.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    Promising review: "I am pregnant and get up to use the bathroom multiple times a night. This little gadget has been awesome. It provides a good amount of light but not too much to wake up my sleeping husband. It has multiple colors and the motion sensor is great. Plus it only lights up when you need it, unlike a night light. It is also really easy to set up. Love it!" —K. Adler

    18. An undated productivity planner so you can keep your goals ahead of you and your tasks organized starting TODAY, not January 1st.

    Amazon

    It'll help keep track of your to-do lists, calendars, schedules, goals, and even will help you make and keep habits!

    Get it from Amazon for $24.45 (available in three colors).

    Promising review: "I love planners and every single one I have ever gotten fell short in someway. Not this planner. It has been so helpful and I love the order and flow of the pages...everything just simply makes sense and goes beyond what any average planner can do...completely and keeps me on track and sticking to my goals! Best planner I've ever purchased!" —Kelsey Dyer

    If this isn't quite right for you, see the best planners on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    19. A set of Rubbermaid containers with lids that snap onto the *bottom* of containers, meaning you'll never have to go on a 15-minute hunt for the right pair while your leftovers are sitting out — or deal with the avalanche of containers that regularly rains down upon your head.

    Amazon

    Get a 42-piece set from Amazon for $24.49.

    Promising review: "This product ended my container mess! I was really tired of trying to organize my collection of containers of assorted shapes and sizes. No matter what I did it was always a kind of organized disarray! Sounds familiar? What a difference with this Rubbermaid set! These containers nest neatly when empty and stack beautifully in the refrigerator. The lids are easily organized as well. The whole set takes up a smaller space than my old collection. The various sizes have been useful. They are made of good quality plastic. Thank you Rubbermaid!" —Pink Ribbon 09

    20. Shelf dividers to keep your teetering tower of tees and sweaters from toppling when you're rushing in the morning. No one likes a jumper jumble.

    Amazon

    Get a set of eight from Amazon for $34.99 (or a set of four for $19.99).

    Promising review: "Cannot believe I lived without these. These are seriously amazing! I cannot believe I waited so long to buy these and get my closet in order. Great price and came with 8 in the package! Slipped on my shelves easily without any damage. They hold my clothes in place and gives me so much more room!" —Cherise Kachelmuss

    21. A travel-friendly wallet with Rfid-blocking material to keep your identity safe and your passport, credit cards, ID, and boarding pass neat and easy to access. We all have the post-security "where is my boarding pass" panic, but now you can be FREE of it!

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in 35 colors).

    Promising review: "Perfect RFID-blocking wallet for traveling abroad. Fits my passport, money (bills and coins), credit cards, and even a pen nice and compactly. Worked perfectly in my big bag as well as in my small evening purse. Not a soft plush leather but exactly what you'd expect for the money. Functional, durable and nice selection of color choices." —Amazon Customer

    22. A handy dandy portable charger for all those times you leave the house without checking how much battery power you have. Oh, am I the only one who does that?

    Amazon

    This has two USB ports to charge two devices at a time, and it holds enough juice to charge THREE iPhone 8s — so it's ok if you forget to charge *this* bb all the time too.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    Promising review: "This thing is amazing & I’d give it 20 stars If I could!! You will NOT be disappointed! My phone was at 48%, I plugged this in, and in 45 minutes it was up to 100% with plenty of charge left in the charger bank!! I plug it in at night after I use it and it’s fully recharged in a couple hours — and it has awesome light to show you how much it’s charged. It’s flat and fits in my purse or pool bag perfectly. The quality is fantastic & better than any other bank I’ve owned!!" —shayk

    23. A sturdy but cute felt purse organizer with tons of pockets for your phone, earbuds, cosmetics, hand sanitizer, Kindle, and all the other *must-haves* you usually leave in the bag you used yesterday.

    Amazon

    It comes in three different sizes to fit whatever purses, handbags, or totes you have.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.88+ (available in three sizes and 16 colors).

    Promising review: "I was skeptical about buying this at first because I have a purse organizer already. But the one I have is not sturdy at all — the sides fall down and I can never keep things organized because of that. Well this one is perfect!!! I would totally recommend it, I got the large one and it fits perfectly in my bag!!! I'm very happy. It's very sturdy and holds all my stuff. No more digging through my purse to try to find things anymore!!" —Amazon Customer

    24. A pack of Mighty Patch pimple patches so you don't resort to the cycle of pop, ooze, scar, and repeat — these absorb pus and oil from *inside* the zit, protecting skin from further damage and reinfection.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Get a 36-pack from Amazon for $12.34.

    Promising review: "I'm obsessed with these things!!! I'm an esthetician, however, being in my twenties and having raging hormones has challenged my skin a lot. It's embarrassing showing up to work and having pimples meanwhile others are supposed to trust me with their skin. These are so fast acting and have save me a lot of time and money. Super fast acting, and it's amazing how it just sucks out the infection. It's perfect for those deep under the skin pimples as well, but it does take a few extra days. I will continue to repurchase!" —Julia Raye Todd

    25. A microwave rice steamer to make burnt stovetop rice a thing of the past. Just add your grain, water, and pop in the micro! No pulling out a pot, waiting for it to boil, reducing to a simmer, or hovering around waiting to uncover a kitchen disaster.

    Amazon

    And 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.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.59.

    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

    26. A set of five stainless steel mixing bowls with silicone non-stick bottoms, so you can beat together your world-famous brownie batter without 1. the bowl spinning uncontrollably 2. the bowl slipping off the counter and spilling ALL OVER THE FLOOR!

    Amazon

    And LIDS for marinating (or letting your cookie dough chill) and storage!

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $39.99 (or $33.99 without lids).

    Promising review: "Worth the price! I though the material will not that good because the price isn’t that high compares to any store locally. But when I receive it, they shock me! These are really nice mix bowls! Just as same quality as bowls you can find anywhere in department store or Target! Worth the price!" —Toxilatte L.

    27. A set of stainless steel finger guards to let you hone your knife skills without lit'rally putting those hands on the chopping block.

    Amazon

    Just pop one on your finger like a ring — the band in the back is adjustable, so it's one size fits all.

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $7.95.

    Promising review: "Great product! I use it all the time, really is a life saver in the kitchen." —Sani

    28. A silicone safeguard to prevent your pot from boiling over and getting pasta water all over your cooktop. Are you as TIRED of scrubbing as I am?!

    Amazon

    A watched pot never boils, but an unwatched pot makes a huge mess. This bb is heat safe up to 400 degrees, so you can safely pee while your pasta cooks without dealing with the aftermath.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    Promising review: "You would not think this product is as awesome as it is! I never use pot or pan lids anymore. I use the boil-over safeguard all of the time because: 1) I can use the little lid insert to heat the food or water quickly; it holds the heat in. 2) Once I take the insert off, the food is visible. I can see it without removing a lid so many times and dripping condensation all over my stove. 3) I can use it on small pots and frying pans as well as large. It does not melt. It is easy to clean. 4) It protects against oil spatters when I sauté in a frying pan of any size. It is awesome!!" —Grandmuffin

    29. A round blindspot mirror that'll make merging, changing lanes, and even your nightmare — parallel parking — a breeze.

    Amazon

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $6.97 (also available in rectangular and egg 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

    30. A pet-feeding reminder chart so you never have to ask yourself whether you fed Rufus, or if that was yesterday.......

    Amazon

    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.

    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.

    31. 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!

    Get a two-pack from Amazon (one for your left eye, one for your right) for $12.99 (available in three 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

    Amazon

    Get a pack of 600 pointed swabs from Amazon for $10.99.

    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.

    33. 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. Next time, just buy a Tubshroom to prevent this even in the first place.

    Real talk: after learning about this, I ordered two and used it on my bathroom sink and shower. HOLY KAMOLE does it work. So gross, so effective.

    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.

    34. 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!

    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

    35. A Cerama-Bryte cooktop cleaning kit, which includes cooktop cleaning solution, a scrubbing pad, and a scraper so you can absolutely remove every bit of baked- and caked-on food from any smooth range — no matter how long it's been there.

    Promising review: "This is a game changer! Had the hardest time finding something to clean my stove without scratching the surface. This thing works wonders. You can use the yellow sponge that comes with it or just use paper towels. Works great. It is also good on many surfaces, not just the stovetop. I recommended it to my family and they all loved it!" —BaiSam

    36. 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!

    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?

    37. 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
