Turns out life is kinda gross. But don't worry, there's a product for that.

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 β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

1. A bottle of pet earwax cleaner that'll clear up the gunk in your cat or dog's ears, which hopefully means they'll finally hear you when you tell them to stop jumping on the sofa.

I have hairless cats who need a little extra help keeping their ears clean and I love this stuff! It's gentle enough to use often and breaks up earwax fast.

Promising review: "My husband and I just adopted our cute puppy, Winston, from the humane society. When we adopted him his ears were unfortunately pretty dirty, but after using this ear cleaner today his ears are so clean!! I'm so amazed at everything it managed to get out. Our puppy's ears look so much better now! I would highly recommend this product to anyone with a dog." β€”AmazonLurker

Get it from Amazon for $11.90.

2. A makeup brush cleaner you're gonna be glad to get β€” especially when you realize just how dirty the brush you've been rubbing all over your face is.


This set includes a USB charging station, brush spinner, eight rubber collars, a glass bowl, splash guard ring, a manual, and a bottle of makeup cleaning solution. To use, dip the brushes in cleaning solution, spin them in the water, and then spin them to dry (there are three different speeds to accommodate different types of brushes).

Promising review: "This is seriously the best purchase ever! This is a life saver!!! It took me less than 10 minutes to clean all my brushes." β€”Pen Name

Get it from Amazon for $32.99.

3. A salt shooter so you can finally kill off the nasty houseflies that keep putting their dirty little feet all over your food.

Speaking of food, you could also use this as a seriously impressive salt shaker.

Promising review: "I bought this as a Christmas gift for my husband and I'm not entirely sure that was a smart move on my part. Not because the product doesn't work (it works very well, in fact) but because my husband is now intent on leaving the doors open to the house when summer comes back around so all kinds of bugs can be let in for him to kill. He's already had the pleasure of being able to use it on a spider that was on an outdoor Christmas decoration and boy was he ecstatic! Since we seem to be in short supply of bugs in the house during these cold winter months, my husband has also resorted to using this gun as a way to add salt to food while he's cooking. This product works, it kills bugs, and you can even use it while cooking if you're tired of using the boring old salt shakers we have all grown accustomed too." β€”Adrianna McCain

Get it from Amazon for $39.95.

4. A foot file for when rough heels and calluses leave you feeling de-feet-ed.

Promising review: "This thing is pretty amazing. I was skeptical for sure, since I've tried all kinds of lotions, balms, and stone-based products, none of which helped my heels whatsoever. I've worn socks to bed for years, because if I don't the sheets hardly last a week before they have holes rubbed through them. My wife ordered this thing that looks like a mini cheese grater, lol, and after two minutes β€” two minutes!! β€” of rubbing it on my heel, it's a complete 180. I never would've believed it until I tried it myself. This is well worth double what it costs." β€”LBK

Get it from Amazon for $7.68.

5. A rust-removing gel spray that'll clean up caked-on stains so well it'll definitely be a valuable addition to the ~rust~ of your cleaning routine.

Promising review: "The photos speak for themselves. When we bought our home there was no water softener and years of iron build up. We tried so many things on our shower. Nothing worked. We were convinced we’d be stuck until we renovated the bathroom. But this worked wonders. I still can’t believe it. We had to let it sit for about an hour, then it dissolved and wiped right off. Definitely use in a ventilated area if possible." β€”M. Gilardi

Get it from Amazon for $5.

6. A box of deep-cleansing pore strips that is gonna take your face from connect the dot to connect the not (we all know that nothing feels better than breaking free from our breakouts).


Promising review: "Want to feel disgusting about your previous self from five minutes ago and better about your health for the next couple of weeks? Then wet down your schnoz and toss one of these babies on there. It will transform from malleable and comfortable to a stiff sticky pad on your face. After waiting five minutes, when you are ready to see what disgusting things have been cratered in your nose, pull this baby off. Get ready to feel the rush of excitement as your nose has its blackheads ripped from their pores and you feel cleaner than you do after a shower. Then flip it over and inspect it closely to see how many nasty blackheads were previously calling your nose home. Take a pick or show to a friend, preferably both. Then crumple it up and throw it away and begin the countdown until the next extraction." β€”r0bdawg11

Get a box of 24 from Amazon for $13.29.

7. A wart removing gel you can use when you're dealing with a wart growing on you that is most certainly not growing on you.

Promising review: "I NEVER write reviews, but this stuff is a miracle so I had to. Stop debating which wart removal product you want to buy and get this NOW. I've tried everything, including having my warts frozen off at the doctor, and not even that did the trick. This stuff did. My warts were extremely large and stubborn, but I was persistent with the gel every day for about six weeks, and they're almost gone. It's absolutely amazing." β€”Maria Efting

Get it from Amazon for $13.92.

8. A toilet scrubber that'll quickly help your toilet sparkle and shine before you feel too ~pooped~ to finish the job.

The kit comes with a wand, six refill heads loaded with Clorox, and a storage caddy. The wand has a handy switch that'll let you drop the used head right in the trash so you don't have to touch any nastiness. Plus, the sponge is specially shaped to get into nooks and crannies under the rim, and it can also help remove calcium stains and rust!

Promising review: "When I moved into my current apartment, I inherited a toilet brush that had probably been used by the previous six tenants. It was nasty and disgusting. I'd had these toilet wands before, but I'd left them at my old apartment, so I knew I needed a replacement. These are so easy to use. You snap the sponge head onto the wand, clean your toilet, and unlock the used sponge head over the trash can. The sponge doesn't sit in its own filth waiting for the next time you use it. The handle sits in its own nook in the bin. I love it! I clean my toilet once a week and I like the how simple this system is." β€”Lauren Roland

Get it from Amazon for $8.88.

9. A tongue scraper, because it's in good ~taste~ to keep your breath fresh and sometimes brushing isn't enough to get rid of bacteria on your tongue.

Promising review: "Unfortunately I, like many, suffer from bad breath and have tried so many things to stop it. I read that sometimes it's the germs on your tongue that can cause it, so I went crazy trying to brush my tongue. Of course we all know how that ends β€” gagging, watery eyes, and it still looks like that gross film is on your tongue. I finally decided that maybe it was time to get a tongue cleaner and it had to be a stainless steel one because they are easier to clean and sterilize. This product is really easy to use and I can get very far back on my tongue without activating my gag reflex. Also, it doesn't have the feeling like brushing with a toothbrush does. This cleaner just glides across my tongue, taking all the icky germs and bad breath with it. I love my nice new fresh breath and bolster of confidence!" β€”jordanlauren

Get it from Amazon for $7.28.

10. A bottle of stainless steel cleaner for anyone who can't stand the sight of sticky fingers on sleek surfaces.

Promising review: "Used other products where you had to rub and buff until your arm almost fell off. We've been doing a kitchen renovation and of course, the refrigerator is right in the middle of everything, dust and dirty hands β€” I thought I would never get it clean, I really wanted to buy a new refrigerator. I have an older GE profile fridge. It has stainless steel panels so the fingerprints really show, but you spray the stuff on, wipe it off, and it's amazing β€” no fingerprints! It's been a week and we're still in reno mode, either they're putting gloves on or using telekinesis to open the door. Not a spot! Love it, buying more!" β€”Alice Cuevas

Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

11. A bed bug killer β€” monsters under the bed might not be real, but monsters in the bed are... and you're gonna need to get rid of them quick.


Promising review: "Completely eradicated the bedbug problem we incurred when we purchased an old bed frame. First thing we did was buy encasements for all of the mattresses and box springs (this is a must). I sprayed every 5-7 days around the baseboards and perimeter of the beds, vacuumed three times a week, sprayed down our bed, bed frames, and mattresses daily with 91% alcohol with some lavender oil (found out they hate lavender), and sprinkled diatomaceous earth around the baseboards as well. It's been three weeks and we haven't seen any more, thank goodness! This was one of the most horrible experiences I have ever been through β€” sometimes feeling helpless, not being able to sleep, and worrying about these nasty critters eating on our daughter at night. I am so glad we found this spray and I would recommend it to anyone that's having problems with these things." β€”Court

Get it from Amazon for $54.79.

12. A lavender foot peel that'll make your feet so soft even your friends will find trying it ap-peel-ing.


This has over 4,500 five-star reviews!

Promising review: "My husband’s feet shedded like a snake and it was AWESOME! He has serious calluses on his feet from daily work boot wearing and I am happy I finally found something to help. He soaked his feet for 30 minutes prior to applying the baby foot product and used a sock to keep them in place. After two hours he removed them and washed it all off. Peeling started on day four and was done at day eight. His feet are way softer than they have been in years. He says he has more feeling on the bottom of his foot and is really happy with his results." β€”Emily Brook

Get it from Amazon for $15.17.

13. A Tubshroom sure to get you (and your drain) out of some seriously nasty, hairy situations.,

Check out a BuzzFeeder's review and read about the ~hairy~ situations solved by this li'l shroom!

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!" β€”Aaron Morlock

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

14. A laundry whitener that's gonna help make your stained whites look like something a real detergentleman would wear.

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

Get it from Amazon for $6.92.

15. A drill brush kit, because you can no longer ~brush~ it off when your friends ask how long it's been since you've washed the tub.

Promising review: "These brushes worked flawlessly. I have a 24-year-old home that has not been remodeled yet. The master bath shower tile and fiberglass shower pan were in pretty bad shape. We tried many types of cleaners to remove residual soap and hard water stains with little success. As a last ditch effort, I purchased these brushes. They worked amazingly well. Using Krud Kutter and these brushes removed every bit of the dirt and polished those tiles so that they shined brilliantly like they did when they were new. I am completely satisfied with my purchase of these brushes. They are well made and held up beautifully to the forces I applied while using them." β€”Tom S4TX

Get it from Amazon for $11.95.

16. A lice comb for when you realize the only thing ~bugging~ you more than having lice is how long it can take to get rid of them.,

Promising review: "This better be the only comb you buy if you find yourself unlucky enough to need it!! We got the plastic one first and quickly realized it was a big mistake. This one solved our problem in a heartbeat. This was very effective for our five-person family. This comb was used, boiled, wiped and used over and over again. We have extremely long and thick hair and this comb was far less painful than the crappy plastic ones that come with lice shampoo. Trust me. You have to have a comb that works or those nasty little buggers are staying." β€”Jason Anderson

Get it from Amazon for $12.90.

17. A spinning scrubber that'll come in handy when you have a cleaning task you don't want to get too close to. Floors get gross, there's really no other way to ~spin~ it.


This comes with an extendable pole and four styles of brush. Oh, and it's cordless, so all you have to do is charge, then go!

Promising review: "I have several health issues and can no longer get on my hands and knees to scrub the floor, and this thing is unreal! I am SO glad I got this β€” it really made cleaning up so much easier! The before and after pictures are of our basement bathroom after a flood. The pics make it pretty obvious which ones are the before and the after..." β€”W. Shores

Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

18. A drain snake is sure to make you feel like a wizard when you decide to have it ~slytherin~ your drain and pull out something from the dark arts.


Promising review: "The plunger would solve the problem for one or two days max, then it would be back to standing water. Nothing was fixing our bathroom drain issues in the sink AND the tub. The tub was getting so bad that it was dangerous to stand in the shower, because the gross scum buildup made the tub so slippery. Then I ordered this. I was convinced we were going to have to hire a plumber to rip out the whole bathroom to find the problem. We dealt with these horrible drain issues for months. I could not believe β€” it didn't get stuck and all the disgusting gross crap that came out of the sink drain! I should have been wearing a rain suit with a scuba mask and I definitely should have moved our toothbrushes away from the splatter I wasn't expecting. I repeated this process in the bathtub drain, using the same FlexiSnake. I could not believe what and how much came out. I sent photos to my roommates so they would think I was a genius who spent hours fixing this problem and they'd be grateful and buy me dinner. But, honestly, it took about five minutes (shh)." β€”ExPatInAsia

Get it from Amazon for $4.86.

19. An air purifier that can clear up the air in your home so well that going outside to get "fresh air" will seem like an oxymoron.,

Promising review: "After having used this for a few months I can confidently say how great this air purifier is. With the wildfires the air quality in Oregon has been very unhealthy and at times hazardous. Combined with the heat we have no choice but to leave our windows open or the air conditioner running. We also have hardwood floors so the dust, dander, and pet hair gets kicked up very easily. This air purifier has made a world of difference! No smoke smell in the room we run it in and I don't have to worry as much about my son constantly breathing in the smog." β€”4ngryhoeb4g

Get it from Amazon for $89.99.

20. A scar cream you can throw on any awful scrapes or cuts to help clear them up in no time.

Promising review: "I used an acne spot treatment that left me with a bad burn on my face. After it began healing, I was left with a fairly dark scar. After two weeks of using Mederma, the scar had already improved so much! After about eight and a half weeks, you couldn't even see where the original scar was anymore. β€”Jordan B.

Get it from Amazon for $12.63.

21. And a hand cream that has ~cracked~ the case when it comes to dry, sore hands. This stuff is so good you'll wanna give it a hand.

Promising review: "Every winter, my fingers and knuckles crack and bleed. I've tried everything on the market to heal my hands. I received this hand cream yesterday and when I put it on, I could tell right away that this was better than anything I'd tried. This stuff started working immediately. I filled all the cuts and cracks on my hands with this cream, and today they are almost healed. I believe that this is the best hand cream ever made on earth." β€”Steve

Get a 3.4-ounce jar from Amazon for $6.49.

22. And finally, a cockroach bait that's gonna kill off those monsters so they can no longer enc-roach on your otherwise happy life.


Promising review: "I had a bad roach problem at a rental property. I tried roach bombing the unit, but the roaches kept coming back within a day or so. So I placed an order for this. Within a minute of applying this bait, roaches were crawling out of every crack and crevice in the home, literally crawling over each others' bodies to get a taste of this stuff. My rental unit had laminate flooring. I came back the next day to check on the progress and I found the unit's floor had turned into carpet. A carpet made of roach corpses." β€”T.V.

Get a pack of four from Amazon for $25.52.

When we have to face the fact that sometimes life gets a little gross.
