    1. A cockroach bait that's gonna destroy those creepy crawlies so fast they won't even have a chance to ~bug~ you.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    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." —T.V.

    2. A hand cream that'll make your skin so smooth you'll forget you once had hands as dry as your humor.

    amazon.com

    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." —Steve

    3. A scar cream you can throw on any awful scrapes or cuts when you have someone in your life who refuses to cut it out with the dangerous activities.

    amazon.com

    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. —Jordan B.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    4. An air purifier sure to clear up the air in your home so well that going outside to get "fresh air" will be totally unnecessary.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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." —4ngryhoeb4g

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99.

    5. A drain snake that's gonna pull up something worse than even Stephen King would put down a drain.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    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 — 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)." —ExPatInAsia

    Get it from Amazon for $5.01.

    6. A spinning scrubber that'll keep you as far away from the action as you can possibly be, while still cleaning so well people will think you were scrubbing on your hands and knees.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    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 — 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..." —W. Shores

    Get it from Amazon for $55.99.

    7. A lice comb for when you just wanted to try on a nice hat but ended up trying on a lice hat.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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." —Jason Anderson

    Get it from Amazon for $13.77.

    8. A drill brush kit, because your mom has been trying to ~drill~ this into your head for years... you have to clean your bathtub to actually get clean from a bath.

    amazon.com

    This kit includes three nylon power brushes that'll fit on any cordless drill.

    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." —Tom S4TX

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    9. A window fly trap for getting rid of pesky house flies in a far more efficient and sanitary way than whacking them with a fly swatter.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These things really worked for me. Flying insects love to buzz around the windows and eventually they will get stuck in this trap. It's fairly easy to apply to your window and also fairly easy to discard. I really like how this works." —Jim Hunnicut

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    10. A pack of pimple patches that'll absorb particularly pesky puss until it's off your face for good.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    And check out this post to learn more about just how magical these are.

    Promising review: "I can't even express how incredible these patches are! They have reduced some of my largest pimples down to hardly anything overnight, and all while not drying out my chronically dry skin (these don't contain salicylic acid). The key, which I didn't realize the first time I used one, is they are much more effective on a pimple if you pop it and then put a patch on shortly after. They are really transparent and honestly look better than the pimple would look without anything on it at all! Between the cost, effectiveness, and ease of use, they have easily become a holy grail product for me. I highly recommended them!" —elynch21

    11. A microwave cleaner sure to save your microwave from a certain, caked-on, death by chocolate (mug cakes).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm embarrassed to say I hadn't cleaned my microwave in about six months. It's an awful task. I ran this one time, wiped down easily, then ran it one more time to get it detailed really clean. I highly recommend using it (more often than once every six months) for a super fast, super clean microwave!" —Kelsey

    Get it from Amazon for $6.67.

    12. A laundry whitener that's gonna help make your stained whites look brighter than the day you bought them... no matter what your kid left on the floor for you to step in.

    amazon.com

    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." —John

    Get it from Amazon for $7.32.

    13. A Tubshroom sure to keep your drain clog-free fur-ever.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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!" —Aaron Morlock

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

    14. A can of oven cleaner that'll eat up baked-in stains as fast as you ate the cake you baked in it.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm a little embarrassed to write this review; it's been six years since my last oven cleaning. After seeing the results, I couldn't help but spread the word. Sure, it took some beer, a little John Mayer, and a lot of elbow grease, but I got the job done, thanks to this handy little product. It did require two treatments; however, given the circumstances, this product accomplished quite a feat in just an hour." —William

    Get it from Amazon for $5.45.

    15. A lavender foot peel that'll be massively ap-peel-ing, even after the peeling process stops.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    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." —Emily Brook

    Get it from Amazon for $17.27.

    16. A bed bug killer that's gonna kill off those evil monsters on your bed faster than they can say, "Boo!"

    Amazon, amazon.com

    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 — 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." —Court

    Get it from Amazon for $54.79.

    17. A pet hair brush, because there's no way to ~brush off~ the need to remove pet fur from your furniture... unless you want your clothes, blankets, and guests covered in it as well.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing is amazing! It even got hair off of the carpet that our vacuum cleaner couldn't get. The trap has brushes facing the opposite direction inside that grab the hair and keep it maintained in the trap. It is easy to clean and well worth the money! It is so much more effective than any lint roller I've ever purchased, and I was even able to get her fur off of my jeans. Get this thing!" —K. Patao

    Get it on Amazon for $24.95.

    18. A bottle of stainless steel cleaner for anyone who knows the site of nasty, sticky fingerprints would ~stick~ with you forever if you don't immediately wipe them away.

    amazon.com

    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 — 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 — 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!" —Alice Cuevas

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    19. A carpet-scrubbing shampooer vacuum that'll make your carpet look as good as new. You know, from before your brown carpet had dealt with two kids and two dogs and was actually a white carpet.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The carpet in our house is fairly old and needs replacing, but with three young children, we have decided to wait before buying a new one. You can only imagine how BAD it really is. I can't brag ENOUGH about this wonderful machine! All I can say is BUY THIS NOW!" —BusyMama

    Get it on Amazon for $123.04.

    20. A tongue scraper, because cleaning your tongue is an important part of dental hygiene and you can use this to take off all that bacteri-yuck.

    amazon.com

    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 — 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!" —jordanlauren

    Get it from Amazon for $5.77.

    21. A toilet scrubber that'll quickly help your toilet sparkle and shine before you start feeling too ~crappy~ about how dirty it gets.

    amazon.com

    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." —Lauren Roland

    Get it from Amazon for $8.79.

    22. A pack of BootRescue cleaning wipes for keeping your shoes from being as salty as you are in gross winter weather.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Worked perfectly on black suede booties. Splattered some creamy soup on them two months ago. Couldn't find anything that removed the stain. Tried these wipes as a last ditch effort. I can't believe it, they look brand new!! Stains came right out with very little effort." —AAD

    Get it from Amazon for $8.49 (available in a resealable pack).

    23. A wart removing gel you can use when you're tired of being a literal worry wart.

    amazon.com

    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." —Maria Efting

    Get it from Amazon for $12.61.

    24. A bottle of fizzing tablets sure to quickly wipe out coffee and tea stains from travel mugs. Honestly, these things work so well you'll be able to sit back, relax, and drink it all in.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. Bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER HydroFlask to replace it. Now eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING." —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $7.99.

    25. A box of deep-cleansing pore strips that's gonna help you break free from your breakouts.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    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." —r0bdawg11

    Get a box of 24 from Amazon for $13.29.

    26. A rust-removing gel spray that'll make cleaning so easy you'll wish you could use this on the ~rust~ of your chores too.

    amazon.com

    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." —M. Gilardi

    Get it from Amazon for $5.

    27. A foot file for when rough heels and calluses make you feel like you just might ~crack~.

    amazon.com

    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 — two minutes!! — 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." —LBK

    Get it from Amazon for $7.38.

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

    amazon.com

    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." —Adrianna McCain

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95.

    29. A makeup brush cleaner — you're gonna be shocked when you realize how much cleaner your brushes (and face) get after using this thing.

    Amazon, amazon.com, amazon.com

    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." —Pen Name

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    30. And finally, a bottle of pet earwax that'll clean out ear gunk so well your pets may finally hear you when you tell them to stop jumping on the furniture.

    amazon.com

    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." —AmazonLurker

    Get it from Amazon for $10.19.

    Me, looking at literally all of these.
