    Just A Bunch Of Useful Products Made From Silicone

    Silicone is the secret to success. I'm pretty sure.

    1. A dishwasher safe garlic peeler — simply toss your garlic in, press down, and roll to get perfectly peeled garlic in seconds. This is gentle enough to keep your freshly peeled garlic cloves intact while the grip from the material will keep the peelings inside as your cloves pop out, making meal prep mercilessly simple.

    2. A pack of reusable straws that are dishwasher safe (drool) and easy to take anywhere (heckin' joy) so you can rid yourself of any plastic straw landfill guilt. That feeling ~sucks~.

    3. A wrist watch in a delicate pastel design for the fashion-focused who want a piece that's truly timeless.

    4. A yoga mat with skid-free silicone dots — it won't be a ~stretch~ to see why this thing is useful when you position yourself into downward dog and realize you aren't scooting all over the place. Slipping around during hot yoga? Namaste right here.

    5. A bread maker that'll help you bake perfect loaves of bread using only one container. The partially closed design allows steam to circulate to keep your bread from drying out, while the openings on the side help heat disperse evenly, creating a golden crust. This li'l tool will help you ~rise~ to the occasion any time an occasion calls for baked bread.

    6. A grip strip so useful you're gonna want to stick with it forever. It holds things like sunglasses, cellphones, and keys with a simple grip and makes gravity feel like a thing of the past.

    7. A mix-and-match AirPod case sure to differentiate your Airpods from others' while keeping them clean, easy to hold, and darn good lookin'.

    8. A pack of reusable baking cups for home chefs who want baked goods prepared in a way that's good for the environment *and* to prevent gross paper flakes from sticking to the bottom of mouth-watering muffins.

    9. A makeup sponge with a slick, anti-absorbent exterior, so you can save on product and set a perfect foundation every time you put makeup on your face.

    10. Or a face mask "brush" that'll help you apply masks without losing any spa-worthy products to brush bristles.

    11. A pair of reusable scrubbing gloves — a multitasking cleaning tool sure to make you the clever lifeskill-having adult you didn't even know you could be.

    12. A set of four egg cookers to use on mornings when you've gotta ~scramble~ to make a full breakfast that requires little clean up.

    16. A pair of frosted unbreakable wine glasses – they're gonna be a safe and satisfying solution when past experience has taught you how dangerous drinking by the pool (and more specifically, dropping that drink by the pool) can be. These "glasses" are sure to solve that problem and ~shatter~ your expectations.

    17. And a pack of pretty floral wine stoppers for people who can't finish a bottle to save their life but want to save that bottle for as long as possible.

    18. A pair of toe stretchers that'll ease the pain of bunions and cramps when you've been stuck on your feet all day and your dogs are truly barking.

    19. A flexible compost bin designed to fit comfortably on your counter so you can keep your compost going even if your apartment is five floors from the garden level.

    20. A pack of four reusable sandwich bags to satisfy savvy spenders who are sick of wasting money on disposable bags when they're trying to save money by bringing lunch from home in the first place.

    26. A nightlight that's soft enough to snuggle — you can leave this on at bedtime so you won't hear a peep out of your li'l chickadee at night.

    27. A collapsible popcorn popper for movie-enthusiasts who love popcorn, but would also love an alternative to the microwave bags they've been using since childhood.

    32. A bottle brush that won't scratch glass but *will* make you bottles, glasses, and vases shine bright like a diamond. It'll also be far cleaner than the sponge you used to just wipe bacteria around with. Bless.

    33. A set of five unbreakable flower vases with suction cup bottoms for parents of curious children or clever pets who seem to do their darndest to see what things look like shattered and scattered on the floor.

    34. A set of three candle holders available in mixable hues and with a design that's sure to delight anyone who likes a little spark on their table setting — flip one side over for pillar pieces and the other for tea lights.

    35. A cup bib to catch all the food and drinks your little one can't seem to keep in their mouths (which is, as parents know, most of it). These also wipe clean, making them a quick-drying and smell/stain-free option.

    36. A roll-up drying rack made with metal grates covered in soft silicone that'll prevent scratches and take up no space to store. Roll this on top of the sink when in use and tuck it away in a drawer when the dishes are done! It dries fast, so no worries about drippings in your drawers.

    37. A multi-use scrubber for cleaning laundry, removing scuffs off shoes, getting rid of lint and pet hair from clothes and furniture, grooming your shedding pet, cleaning your makeup, and doing your taxes. I'm pretty sure about that last one.

    38. A flexible spoon with a one-tablespoon measure that'll stir, flip, and add the perfect amount of oil every time you sauté. Space-saving, multi-tasking kitchen tools like this may actually make cooking worth it.

    41. A pair of heat-safe tongs – they're gonna turn over your grilled goods all BBQ season long, hold roast steady when you're cutting up family dinner, and even toss a salad when your lunch is rather light. The real question is, what can't these tongs do?

    42. A set of decibel-reducing, noise-canceling earplugs designed to keep your ears safe and clear out any sound around you when you paid good money to hear your favorite band and definitely did *not* pay to hear the drunk people next to you slur Every. Single. Song.
