    Busting down rust, dust, sweat, germs. You name it.

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 shortcuts keyboard cover to help folks trying to master Adobe Photoshop that tend to forget a keyboard hack almost as fast as it's learned. Behold, the ~key~ to Adobe Photoshopping like a true whiz. (You'll also find a ton of similar keyboard covers for dif software programs from this brand!)

    Chic Geeks

    This is designed for the standard US Macbook keyboard and will be handy for beginners and OGs alike. Btw, it's made by a Black-owned and woman-owned business! I also can't NOT tell ya that the site also has shortcut keyboard covers for Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Illustrator, Logic Pro X, and Adobe After Effects. 😱🤩

    Promising review: "The Adobe Photoshop shortcut keyboard is sooooo dope... I am buying another one. I love it... Gives my MacBook so much personality." —Bree Moore

    Get it from Chic Geeks for $20 or grab one of the other shortcuts covers (available for 11", 12", and 13" laptop sizes).

    2. A bed rest pillow with arms and an adjustable head cushion so your neck and back can relax properly as you WFB (work from bed).

    on the left, a person leans on the pillow with its headrest propped up. on the right, a mom leans on a pillow with headrest turned down. A quote from the mom says, "I can play all night and day on the floor with my daughter without my back aching."

    Several reviewers noted that this was the winning pillow for them after trying a bunch of different ones to soothe their back and neck discomfort.

    Promising review: "I had been looking for a reading/backrest pillow for a while and nothing was right about any of the others that I found. I loved the features on this one so I ordered it and I could not be happier! The price was great and the quality is outstanding. The removable cover is heavy-duty but so soft and not stiff at all. I love that it comes with a neck roll that can be secured in place by means of loops and buttons that don't interfere with comfort in any way. There's a wide pocket in the back that will hold books and magazines, and another on one of the arms. The very best thing is the memory foam filling! The pillow arrived very firm and heavy which would be great for many people. I wanted it to be less firm. With this pillow, it's easy to adjust to whatever firmness or softness that you are comfortable with since the inner pillow has a zipper at the bottom so you can remove or add the stuffing... The company also has more foam available if you want! I'm thrilled with this and would recommend it to anyone! Five stars are not enough!" —L.S. Floyd

    Get the pillow and cover from Amazon for $79.95 or just the pillow for $59.95.

    3. A weighted cup holder to drape across the arm of your sofa and hold your drink sturdy. You'll barely have to move a MUSCLE when it's time to take a sip while you stream the show you refuse to peel your eyeballs from.

    Promising review: "This drink holder works really well for areas where you don't have a table nearby to set your drinks on. It's well made, grips the material of the couch or chair so there is no slippage, and accommodates different-sized drink containers. It is also easy to clean. I would highly recommend." —Elizabeth

    Get it from CouchCoaster on The Grommet for $19.95 (available in four colors including a lovely mocha).

    4. An Always Pan will be your new go-to in the kitchen after you enjoy all its features and realize that "non-stick" feature they brag about is THE TRUTH HONEY! Tell your old forever-sticking pans it's not them, it's you, and things just aren't going to ~pan~ out but you'll ~Always~ cherish the memories. 🤪

    several sheets of soap fanned out beside of the travel container

    Promising review: "Cute little containers that fit in your pocket. One sheet lathers nicely. Great to have if traveling or just out and find yourself in a bathroom with no soap. Also great for campers. I do wish they were made in America though." —Nicki

    Urban Melts Candle Co.

    Oh, and it's rose gold so... it's GORG. This comes from a small business based in Santa Maria, California. Several reviewers also noted that the brand often sneaks a cute lil' tealight into the wick trimmer package. 😘

    Promising review: "I didn’t know wick trimmers were a thing until a few weeks ago. Now, I’m not sure how I lived without one. 🤣 I got a pair for myself and one for my mom and we both LOVE them. They have a good weight to them and I love the beautiful rose gold color. The tealight that was sent with the trimmer was a Pumpkin Chai scent and smells AMAZING! I also appreciate the eco-friendly packaging that these were mailed in." —Yasmin

    Get it from Urban Melts Candle Co. on Etsy for $15.

    8. A turtleneck bodysuit because who wants to tuck and retuck and tuck and retuck a top all day? Def not you with all the better things you have to do — like looking put-together without a hassle.,

    One reviewer noted that it's also stretchy enough to comfortably accommodate a baby bump.

    Promising review: "This is so soft and so comfortable. It’s the first bodysuit I’ve bought and I don’t know why I hadn’t purchased it sooner. It’s amazing. I was worried about the snaps near the crotch being uncomfortable but you don’t even know they’re there. I also worried about the price if it might be see-through but it’s not at all. I’ll probably be buying it in every color." —MW

    A model placing a phone down on a wireless black charging pad

    I bought my mom and stepdad this (one for each of their nightstands) for Christmas and they hooked them up right away. They're loving being able to pick up a phone and just go.

    Oh yeah, this little power bank can charge *deep breath*: the iPhone SE, 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, Xs Max, XR, XS, X, 8, and 8 Plus; AirPods; and the Galaxy S20, S10, S9, S8, and Galaxy Note 10, 9, and 8.

    Promising review: "I gave up on wireless charging years ago. Not reliable and super slow. This one seems to charge my mophie battery case faster than being plugged directly into the charger. How does that work? As long as you know where to place your phone it seems to charge fine. And the blue light is nice to show it's charging. But for the price, you can't go wrong. You could easily make something to hold this and your phone if you really wanted to. Long as you place it in the middle though it really is fine." —DJK

    Get it from Amazon for $12.49+ (available in three colors).

    10. Hoodie hangerssssss! They'll prevent those weird bumps that the wider hangers always put into the shoulders AND make your go-to hoodie easier to just grab and go.

    Promising review: "I am so impressed with this product! I need noise all night but the TV wakes my husband up if I leave it on. I put these on when I go to sleep and listen to a show or podcast. I am sleeping better than I have in ages. I don’t hear my teens as they clomp up and down the stairs or even my husband when he gets up through the night. I’m a small woman and I was worried they wouldn’t stay on but I can move through the night and they stay in place. The headphones part isn’t uncomfortable when I sleep on my side. I would highly recommend this!" —Jessica Derby

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in three colors; free shipping; free one-day shipping with Prime).

    Also, my BuzzFeed colleague Mallory Mower adoressss hers. Peep her thoughts on it here:

    "Before getting this I was driving myself up the wall with my bad folding habits. I basically shoved all my shirts into the storage drawers under my bed, because I have a teeny tiny closet (the picture above gives you a solid idea of how small it is). This has given me a massive amount of clothing storage I didn't have before. The quality is stellar, and Traci is 10/10 the most thoughtful person I've purchased an Etsy product from!"

    Get it from The Roll Keeper on Amazon for $20.99.

    Promising review: "Exceeded my expectations. It cuts meats and veggies well, it's easy to clean as you can see in the second and third pic (I just rinsed it off for like two sec and it looked clean just with water). It was easy to hold and was useful to have on the side to open packages 5/5." —Dank O.

    Promising review: "Wow! Just what I needed to axe the paper towel habit. Drying bacon was the only thing I used them for. I was searching for a good alternative! This is it. Glad I bought two. I will buy more for stocking stuffers. I wish I could give extra stars for the compostable packaging! Finally, a thoroughly satisfying purchase." —Wendy Hamilton

    Get it from Glittrsweatandbeards on Etsy for $9.

    19. Dryer vent cleaners to brush out the dust and debris that's (definitely!!!) hiding beneath the filter that you actually do clean regularly. AND (if you're allergic to dust like me), it'll remove dust easily from the filter without you actually having to touch it.,

    Promising review: "I was a little skeptical when I took this out of the package, yet my doubt turned to joy LOL. These are a great buy and I believe will serve my dryer well past its lifetime. My dryer is only a year old and I ALWAYS, after every use, clean the lint filter. I was surprised how much settles to the base of the dryer underneath the filter trap. You may have to use this a few times depending on your machine to get all the lint out but at least you'll get results. Yes, I know it's easier to use the vacuum to get it out, I prefer not lugging the vacuum out for this and this is cheaper AND I can give one away since they give you two." —P. Andersen

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $7.95.

    20. A faucet splash catcher because finally having a solution for the puddle of water that gathers behind that dang sink will be the slice of peace you surely deserve.

    21. Cleansing gel that'll conform like putty to all the smaller, interestingly-shaped places you need to remove dust from like your keyboard, car vents, AC vents, and more.


    The gel is non-sticky and lemon-scented. It's also biodegradable so when you're ready to toss it, you won't be hurting Mother Earth at all. 🌎

    Promising review: "I was skeptical at first. I was afraid my keyboard would be all gummed up with yellow slime! The opposite happened. The gel cleaned it as good as new. It got all those dog hairs between the keys and there's no smell lingering on the keyboard or my hands. There's no sign I even used it except a clean keyboard. It's also kind of fun to play with. Squeeze it between your fingers! LOL. My next task for it will be those dust return air vents on our heating system and my dusty window blinds. This stuff works!" —Billy

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    22. A hanging car diffuser to give your vehicle the smell of a really fun Beach Day or a Desert Flower — ya know, in place of the your car-ride-adoring pup or all the corn chips your kids like to spill all about.

    person holding the lid cover showing suction onto the bowl

    Promising review: "These covers have FAR exceeded my expectations! My family is pretty bad with covering things in the microwave and plastic wrap melts, even if they bother to use it, so I bought these thinking that they would be a good alternative for the microwave. They are awesome! Not only does my family actually USE them, but I am also using them quite often instead of plastic wrap. They work easily and are super durable and long-lasting. The set includes a great variety of sizes. Even the smallest one is great for keeping the cat's head out of our drinks!" —Catwoman1105

    Promising review: "Perfect for my needs. Love the telescoping design and that it has no protruding joints that would prevent it from fitting underneath furniture with low clearance. Reaches under, behind, and around all the tight spaces I can't get to without moving heavy furniture around. The duster is also very lightweight and can handle delicate situations." —Sjay

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    26. A handmade plastic bag organizer to keep your bags separated and easy to grab when you need 'em. Spoiler alert: This is the thing your friends'll want the link to once they discover it in your house.

    Promising review: "I didn’t know I needed this plastic bag organizer until I saw it! I was constantly annoyed by the jumble of boxes in my drawer, and this was the perfect solution. Well crafted, easy to put together, and with a bit of wood glue, it’s a solid organizational storage piece. Would totally recommend!" —Veronika

I researched ways to clean it and came across these. I decided to order a four-pack and try them. THEY ARE LIFE-CHANGING. Just run some water, toss the packet in, and turn on the disposal. The little packet does all the hard work for you. I order a new set as soon as we start to run low." —Lucas Broshears

    Real and Vibrant / Etsy

    Promising review: "I really wish I could leave more than five stars. This is the best shopping experience I’ve had since I joined Etsy like six years ago. First of all, these labels are GORGEOUS. Absolutely stunning, I just received them and already have people asking me where I got them from. Packaging was pristine, nothing was bending or harming these labels. But the customer service?! First of all, the same day I purchased, Sapana sent me a first draft of the labels. She took my feedback and exceeded my expectations. They were shipped the next day and on my doorstep the day after. THEN, Sapana gave me almost an entire sheet of extra labels (which nobody should expect but I SO appreciate) and a coupon for my next purchase?! Amazon is trembling, thank you so much Sapana. I will ABSOLUTELY spread the word & be purchasing again." —Lizzett

    Get the pantry labels on the left from Real and Simple on Etsy for $10+ and the beauty/cleaning product labels for $10+ (both available in sets of 5 or more).
