    56 Things That Might Help Fix Life's Big And Small Problems

    "Every little thing is gonna be alright." —Bob Marley

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 posture corrector that'll basically force you to move with your back straight and your shoulders relaxed for 100% of the time that you wear it. It's also supposed to help your body learn to sit and stand that way naturally!

    Promising review: "I have back issues. Serious ones. Aside from the degeneration and bulging discs, I have an awful hunch that seems to be getting progressively worse since I had my baby... I am also in constant pain and taking pain medication all day is not an option for me. My doctor suggested that I use a posture corrector to see if I could get any relief at all. Although I wasn't very optimistic, I gave it a shot. It took a couple of days of getting used to it but I'm so glad I took his advice! It helps my posture a great deal and my doctor said he attributes the pain relief I feel in my neck and low back to my posture being better. It helps my body remember not to slouch and in doing so has also helped my quality of life immensely!" —Corinne Cruz

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    2. A vibrating scalp massager to give you the head massage you deserve after a stressful day, help you work your shampoo through your hair on wash day easier, and lift dandruff from your scalp.


    Amazon reviewers noted that this little buddy worked for their various hair types and helped ease psoriasis or generally sensitive scalps.

    Promising review: "This is a great little tool. My daughter and I both have VERY thick hair. Mine is especially difficult because it's curly. I have a combination of type 3A and 3B curly hair. My daughter always had a hard time getting to her scalp with shampoo and conditioner which caused some flaking and dandruff. Since she's been using this, that has stopped. It's made it much easier for both of us to get down to the root shaft. For people saying 'just use your fingernails,' this works better. I've had long and short nails and this still works better. It's easy to grip and clean. No complaints here." —J. Love

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in four colors).

    3. Nose- and life-saving Poo-Pourri toilet spray in case people doing #2 in your house is your #1 pet peeve.

    Amazon/Poo-Pourri / Via

    Spray twice before you go and then, boom, heaven wafts into your nose instead of that ~other~ smell.

    Promising review: "I learned of this after seeing it in a friend’s bathroom and they swore it worked great. I bought some myself and was pleasantly surprised. A few spritzes before you go and you can stop questioning your diet. The earth will thank you for saving water on courtesy flushes and the person after you won’t curse your existence. Cheers!" —Dan T.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.03 (available in multiple scents).

    4. An antifungal tea tree oil scrub that tons of Amazon reviewers say will help ease acne, dandruff, warts, dryness, calluses, and a ton of other skin concerns.,,

    Promising review: "This stuff makes my skin feel amazing. I've struggled with acne for more than 10 years and I've used stuff filled with chemicals since the problem started. I've only recently decided to take the all-natural route for my skincare routine. This, followed by some witch hazel and bee venom spot treatment has done more for my skin in a week than Proactiv and other over-the-counter products did in 10 years. Everybody's skin is different but this has really worked for me and I recommend it to anyone. Also, I have very sensitive skin and using this multiple times a week hasn't had any negative effect." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95 (also available for cheaper with a recurring delivery option).

    5. A cosmetics organizer for anyone who has a mountain of beauty products somewhere in their house (or office!) at all times. This'll help you give everything a ~place~ and minimize clutter.

    Promising review: "For a simple tray, it really does hold a lot of stuff. I can say that it is easy to clean as I had blush spill out in one of the spots. A little soap and water and it's clean. I was able to hold the majority of the makeup that I use in this. I was even able to put my makeup brushes and sponges in this thing. The openness of this tray allows me to put my makeup anywhere and not be limited with what I can and can't put in the cubbies. Very sturdy and well-made. Fits perfectly on my counter." —Ronnie Acosta

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in three colors).

    6. A padded bath kneeler for anyone who loves bathing the kiddos but ~hates~ how their knees and elbows feel when it's time to get up. This bath kneeler can be folded and hung up to dry and has four storage pockets for tub toys, shampoos, and more.

    Baby Lovables

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this product! This is exactly what I needed... It provided maximum comfort for my knees and elbows. I couldn't be more impressed by how this product is well-made and well thought out. I mean the cushions come with non-slip resistant material on the backside of both products. The elbow pad itself comes with four suction cups on the back which stick to both sides of the tub for safety/security and four side pockets to place any toys and bath essentials. Also, the products can be velcroed together for hanging purposes to make room. I am extremely happy with the purchase and will definitely buy it again!" —Kevin

    Get it from Amazon for $34.95.

    7. A flameless LED candle set if you're always forgetting to blow out real candles. This set can be turned on, off, and set to a timer with a remote — minus all that fire hazard business.


    Promising review: "I placed one of these candles in a bronze lantern with rocks at the base and it looks really cool. I placed the candles in separate rooms throughout the house (bedroom, living room, and kitchen table), and set them to light up at 10 p.m. and then go out at midnight. They serve as kind of a warning that two hours remain before bed and then when they go out, it's lights out and bedtime. It's a nice, relaxing way to be reminded that the end of the day is coming. They look authentic and wife and daughter love them as well." —Mike

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in three styles).

    8. LED stick-on lights to add to your mirror if you don't have the space or coins for a full-size vanity but ~really~ need to get good lighting to beat your face and do your skincare routine. Just pop these babies on and SELFIE TIMMMME.,

    Promising review: "Best idea ever! I'm living in an old house with only one outlet in the bathroom so I needed a lot of light with just one outlet. This is the perfect solution. You can arrange the bulbs as you wish, you can set the distance between them and the dimming option is awesome! Dimmed for baths and super light for makeup. When it is on max it is really bright. The back of the bulbs are adhesive and they are sticking very well." —Annamarie T.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available six bulbs).

    9. BESTOPE Blackhead Removal Kit to help you stop being so handsy with your pimples and prevent unnecessary redness or spreading bacteria. This kit comes with five different needles for different pimple sizes and a case to store them in when you aren't using them.

    A silver tin (shaped like an eyeglass case) is black on the inside and has five skinny slots where the blackhead remover tools are sitting. A hand is holding one of the tools which has a looped end.

    Using this set is fairly easy. Just cleanse your face, disinfect the tools with alcohol, and then press the end of the tool down onto the pimple you want to extract the fluids from. The ends of these needles are oval-shaped and circular because they will add pressure to the area just outside of your bump as opposed to popping the actual bump and irritating the area.

    Promising review: "My skin is super super sensitive and usually when I pop pimples, they end up looking worse than before (especially with blackheads). This kit is so amazing!!! I just poke the pimple or blackhead with the sharp end then use the loop-shaped thing and the redness goes away in about half an hour instead of multiple days! It makes my blackheads disappear, turns bumps that usually aren't pop-able into small spots that go away within a day, and makes it way less painful to pop hormonal acne! I would seriously recommend this to anyone and especially to people with sensitive skin." —Sara Velasquez

    Get it from Amazon for $8.49+ (available in three color options).

    10. TXTR. by Cantu Oil + Vitamins Scalp Saver for anyone with sensitive skin (like me) who is always having a hard time finding fragrance-free products. If you struggle with psoriasis, eczema, or just an itchy scalp, I promise this will change your whole life. Your scalp might just grow lips and thank you.

    Instagram / Cantu / Via

    The Scalp Saver is made of shea butter (to hydrate and nourish), rosemary oil (to moisturize the scalp), burdock root oil (soothes itching) which treat the skin on your scalp. Meanwhile, it has vitamin D (encourages hair growth), vitamin E (adds shine), and vitamin K (promotes hair strength) to make sure that the hair is nourished as much as the scalp. I've been using this oil blend for about three years and it completely ended my chronically itchy scalp problems.

    Get it from Walmart for $13.28.

    11. A soap scum and grime remover that reviewers swear will remove even the deepest stains.


    BuzzFeed Editor Mallory McInnis also uses this cleaner and loved it!

    "Have you ever seen the movie The Santa Clause? There's a scene where Tim Allen's character shaves away his white beard and then ~WHOOSH!~ it reappears instantaneously. That's basically my bathtub and soap scum. I've tried many products to keep it at bay, but this is the only one that has ever really worked. Not only does it have a cute dog on the packaging, it also allows me to (easily!) wipe away dastardly soap scum without having to use a lot of muscle! Which is great, because I don't exactly have a lot of muscle to use."

    Get from Amazon for $18.88.

    12. A handmade eyeglasses holder that'll be a godsend for anyone who's always losing their glasses.

    One reviewer even shared that he uses this stand to keep up with his glasses and also his wedding ring.

    Promising review: "I got this for my husband as a Christmas gift. It sits on his nightstand and he uses it regularly. He doesn't lose his glasses as much. I've also noticed that he doesn't fall asleep with them on his face or somewhere in bed since he started using this. I like it because it saves me the aggravation of listening to my husband look for his glasses. It's cute yet functional." —Lady Tauber

    Get it from Amazon for $5.49+ (available in seven sculpture styles).

    13. Hair, beard, and tattoo oil shaped like a cowboy hat–wearing skull so you can banish dryness ASAP.

    Gibs Grooming / Via

    Promising review: "I'll admit it. The packaging sold me on this product because I love skull things. But my husband, who has a short beard, really enjoys using it. He says it's easy to apply and after only a single use, it softened his hair so much that he kept stroking his beard all day. He and I both like the scent; it's pleasant but not too strong. I'm eager to try it on my tattoos and it looks great on the bathroom counter." —Dephal

    Get it from Amazon for $25 (also available in a top hat-wearing skull head container if you prefer a more dapper aesthetic).

    14. The Diva Stuff Anti-Bacterial Pillow Mist with lavender and peppermint water that's meant to calm you and help lull you to sleep. It's also made to stop acne-causing bacteria from traveling from your pillows to your face.


    Spray it on your pillows, sheets, and covers but it's also great for spritzing on your couch or any other fabric in your house. The bottle label also says you can use this on your face and body! Actually, just launch a spritzing spree and zap acne-causing bacteria away from every fabric within a 2-mile radius of your residence. This product is cruelty-free.

    Promising review: "I love this pillow spray so, so much! I purchased this and a silk pillowcase to help with my cystic acne and it has worked wonders. It also smells lovely and is super nice at bedtime. I spray it on my whole bed, towels, and my couch now." —Carly Scarberry

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    15. A power perch to keep all of your electronics elevated and away from water. Plus, it'll help you minimize clutter on the bathroom sink.


    Promising review: "If you have gizmos that need to perch near their outlet (hubs for smart lights, voice assistants, electric toothbrushes or shavers), then this is a great product that elevates these items off the countertop or floor. Installation is easy; the two pieces slide together, you remove the existing outlet cover, and then the new outlet panel provides the holding power for the shelf. If the plugs you have for your devices aren't oversized squares or don't need to share the outlet with a Wi-Fi booster, then this product is 5 star. I had a Wi-Fi booster that had to share the outlet with an oversized plug and it's a little snug but they fit!" —2lilac2

    Get it from Amazon from $7.99+ (available in one- and two-packs and two color options).

    16. A mountable electric fireplace for anyone whose home could use more warmth but is also short on space. It has three color settings and the best part? While it does heat up, if you want the cozy ~look~ of a fireplace without feeling the actual warmth, then there's a setting for that too!

    FYI: Tonssss of Amazon reviewers shared their pretty photos of their new fireplace sitting below their TVs but you actually shouldn't do that. The heat is unsafe for your television so be like the person in the photo here and find a cool, TV-less spot in your pad to prop up this eye-catching fireplace.

    Promising review: "This was the perfect piece for the accent wall I created for my bedroom. It is beautiful, looks expensive, was easy to install, and relaxes me when I need to decompress. I live in Florida so I don’t see me needing the heat function but if I do, I’m glad I have it." —1kingsdaughter

    Get it from Amazon for $194.95.

    17. A daily planner to help you keep up with your schedule, as well as set weekly and monthly goals. It has space for to-do lists, motivational stickers, and reflecting on your weeks' victories. Translation: This planner is out to be your personal lil' cheerleader so prepared to tell disorganization to talk to the hand!, Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this planner! I needed something for keeping track of things in a summer college course and usually use my phone but found myself flipping back and forth between apps to get the info I needed. This planner let me fill in my dates so I could start off in June. Most academic calendars that I found don't start until July at the earliest. I've got space each week to schedule and still room to add in my goals for the week, a to-do list, and extra to scratch notes in. Several sheets of stickers also add to the fun of planning ahead. The book itself is sturdy and attractive with three ribbons to mark your place... It also came in a hard box perfect for gift giving. All in all, it was definitely a worthwhile purchase." —S.Bult

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    18. A desk pad to zhuzh up a boring workspace so it looks more like a creativity hub instead of a spot for busywork. The mat can also add more color to your desk, protect its surface, be used as a background for taking photos, and double as a mouse pad.


    One reviewer used the desk pad as a mat for a makeup vanity which is SUPER smart since it can prevent beauty products from staining lighter surfaces.

    Promising review: "I had considered many other desk mats but decided on this one mainly because of the color since I have a dark walnut desk. It looks very expensive and was packaged well, rolled in a heavy tube and then in more good packaging. As soon as I unrolled it and put it down, it flattened right out. I love the color and it is not too thick so it looks great. There is a smoother side and a textured side. I am using the smoother side and it is extremely pleasant to write on paper using that side. This appears to be a high-quality product and I anticipate getting many years of use from it. Thank you so much for such a great product and for offering it on Amazon!" —Missy

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in three sizes and nine colors).

    19. Candy-colored mismatched earrings that are super pretty but will also be perfect if you're always losing an earring. With this purposefully mismatched set, you never have to worry about an exact match and will always have a set to wear.

    The Apollo Box

    Get them from The Apollo Box for $9.98 (available in two shapes and color options).

    20. Noise-canceling headphones for days when you need to hunker down and FOCUS, FOCUS, FOCUS. (Or, when you just feel like entertaining absolutely no one.),

    Promising review: "These are amazing! The sound is clear and the bass is quality. I put on some Kendrick to test out the bass. Ha! They were so easy to use straight out of the box. The headphones were already charged and it was way simple to connect to Bluetooth. The noise-cancelation is great when music is playing and if you’re not playing music, you can still hear which is great for safety reasons. I'm really happy with this purchase. It feels like a quality product. Plus it came with a little travel bag!" —Sticker Ninja

    Get them for $49.99+ (available in four colors).

    21. A dishwasher magnet to keep EVERYONE in the house on the same page about what's going on with the dishes. You know, because dirty plates in the cabinets are a no-go.


    Promising review: "Not too much to say here. It will remind you that your wife wants you to empty the dishwasher. It will also remind your wife that you haven't emptied the dishwasher." —Taz

    Get it from Amazon for $4.83.

    22. Magic Eraser Sponges to put on your walls so marks and stains come completely off and your home starts to look like YOUR home again.

    There's no point in putting cute stuff on your walls if they're going to be offset by dirty stains, right?

    Promising review: "Hey! Did I tell you Mr. Clean and his Magic sponges changed my life?! I live in an apartment that very quickly gets gross and grubby due to oldness and I use these suckers on *everything*. I don't recommend using them on matte walls but I do anyway, to erase scuffs. I use them on my kitchen floor which is disgusting thanks to the '60s floor tiles that are peeling off the floor, and my Siamese cat who eats his wet food while standing on his plate and then walks around leaving little paw prints of grossness. I use the sponges to clean everything in my bathroom and kitchen. There's nothing more satisfying than wiping your stove with a damp Mr. Clean, turning it over, and seeing the tint of filth. Even if you think you have an immaculate kitchen, (and your friends say, "OMG, your house! It's so clean! I wish my house was so immaculate!" when they visit.) Mr. Clean will prove to you otherwise." —Customer Review

    Get it from Amazon for $7.97.

    23. An activated charcoal toothbrush to help you take better care of your teeth because it doesn't matter how old you get, preventative care will always be better than scary trips to the dentist due to not working overtime to care for your teeth.


    The bristles are made with activated Japanese binchotan charcoal to help prevent plaque and impurities from building up on your teeth and bacteria from growing on your brush.

    Promising review:
    "The only toothbrush that gets all the filthy gunk off my teeth. As firm as you would want to go with a toothbrush. The finger indent on the handle is nice, and the small size makes the toothbrush easy to control." —Devon Scheibert

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50. And if you're trying to upgrade your brushing situation, then check out our picks for the best electric toothbrushes on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    24. Cable clips for eliminating all the discord created by the many cords in your life. Your stuff is going to look so satisfying after you get everything in perfect order with these simple thingamajigs.


    One reviewer even used these clips to hold up toothbrushes in their bathroom!

    Promising review: "I have beautiful new end tables and a sofa table and wanted to hide the lamp cords that you can see based on the style of the tables. I bought these and am absolutely thrilled with them. They stick on the back of the table and you can direct the cords down the leg of the tables to the outlets. They can be taken off with no harm to the furniture at all, and my tables look much better without those ugly dark chords just hanging down the back." —JK

    Get them from Amazon for $5.49+ (available in three different quantities and an assortment of colors).

    25. A mop and broom holder to make your kitchen or laundry room look less cluttered instantly. It'll also hold things like bags and house keys.

    Promising review: "This product is fantastic! It was easy to mount and hanging stuff is a breeze. My house is very old with no extra closet or pantry space. I needed to clean up the dreaded corner of shovels and a mop. Luckily, this product was able to do that and it also comes with hooks. Since it's hung by my back door in the kitchen, I can also hang my aprons and purse on it. This little piece is very sturdy and so are the little hooks. My double-zippered purse is full of things and it holds like a charm." —Shellybeenz

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    26. A Revlon Shine Nail Buffer – it'll finally give your nails the refresh they're thirsting for. The double-sided buffer is meant to create a shiny topcoat that lasts for three days. You're about to tell those $80 nail salon trips buh-bye! (OK. Maybe not because they're fun but this'll be a handy thing to have when you need to get your fingers together between visits).

    Promising review: "I was not expecting much because I'm used to nail buffers that take forever to use because they do not smooth over the nail sufficiently, so there are obvious bumps. However, this buffer already polished my nail with the first side as well as my other sets did at the finish. Then, the second side (white side) polished my nails in seconds. The shine lasts and lasts! Touch-up is easy and I have never been more satisfied with a nail buffer in my life!" —Alexandra

    Get it from Amazon for $5.18.

    27. A mildew-resistant antimicrobial shower curtain liner to keep all the funk and gunk away from your bathroom — like wayyy away.

    This liner has five magnets at the bottom to hold it in place in your shower, 12 rust-proof metal grommets, and a reinforced header. It's designed to be heavy-duty enough for use as a liner or as a single curtain.

    Promising review: "Initially, I was not ecstatic when I opened the box. I guess I was expecting something more but it's just a clear shower curtain, right? What's so OMGIMSOEXCITED about a clear shower curtain? So, I hung it up and initially was going to get a decorative shower curtain for the outside of my tub and keep this on the inside. Well, let me tell you, I warmed up to this clear shower curtain lots! I actually love it so much that I am keeping it like this and not getting a decorative one! The clear shower curtain makes your bathroom look and feel bigger, and it's great showering while being able to see out of the tub... It doesn't get in my way because of the curve of the railing and it doesn't hold or gather soap scum or any stains around the edges like I have seen some do. It is truly transparent and pretty! I am happy with the purchase and of course, at a great price." —Maria

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in three styles).

    28. Kaboom Foam-Tastic Bathroom Cleaner with an OxiClean lemon citrus scent that I use and LOVE for how it attacks the dirt in my bathroom. It'll be your go-to for all things bathroom-related thanks to how fast it cleans and how good it smells (no choking or sneezing here!). You just spray the foam, let it sit, and when the foam turns white, that's how you know it's time to wipe it away along with the dirt. Bonus: The blue-ish/purple-ish foam just looks super cool.

    I really appreciate how much effort this bathroom cleaner takes out of scrubbing. I have asthma so unfortunately, lots of simple activities like cleaning my bathroom can become very strenuous for me and cause me to run out of breath. Kaboom makes my cleaning process much faster and I don't have to work as hard to scrub the dirt out of my bathroom, especially my shower.

    Get it from Amazon for $3.72+ (available in multiple quantities).

    29. A shark-swimming-in-wine glass if you need something fun in your collection of dishes that'll also help you wrap up a ~biting~ long day with a little vino. And nope, you shouldn't feel gill-ty at all because, well, this wine glass is way too cool not to thoroughly indulge.


    Get it from The Shark Wine Glass on Etsy for $29.95 (available stemmed and stemless).

    30. A reversible baby playmat for parents who want to cater to their kids but don't want their home aesthetic to ~always~ be playpen-inspired. This mat features cartoon letters, shapes, and numbers on one side but looks super grown-up and stylish on the other with a simpler, neutral print. It's meant to stimulate kids visually, protect them from hard falls, and make messes easier to clean.


    Promising review: "This is by far the best baby purchase we've made. Guests think it's a beautiful carpet and are so surprised when they see the other side. It's so cute and fun for baby! I love how durable this is and how easy it is to clean. We just sweep it and wash it with dish soap and water. It even survived a red wine spill. The guests who marveled at the carpet-like appearance also marveled at how stain-resistant it is. This mat has made tummy and playtime much safer with our hardwood floors. I can't say enough about how great this thing is!" —Ann F.

    Get it from Amazon for $139.95+ (available in eight styles).

    31. A handheld veggie slicer that'll help you make veggie noodles in a ~slash~ so you can make veggie-filled meals ~and~ save money by avoiding takeout for a change.


    The slicer has dual stainless-steel cutting blades so you can make thick or thin pasta strands out of your favorite vegetables.

    Promising review: "What a fantastic kitchen widget! I actually have a large spiralizer and never use it because it is a pain to get out and clean. I saw this and bought it and couldn't be happier. It's easy to use and easy to clean if you rinse and clean right away. The small and compact size makes this easy to store without taking up tons of space! The option for two different sizes of noodles is a nice feature!" —Jamie E.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98.

    32. A produce-saving container to make fruits and veggies ACTUALLY FREAKING LAST for more than four days. No more wasting your hard-earned duckets on fruit just to discover they've withered away into shoulda-coulda-woulda-been-delicious land. Do I sound like a personal victim? I am but thanks to this container, none of us have to be anymore.

    BuzzFeed / Natalie Brown

    Buzzfeed Shopping editor Natalie Brown tried it and turned me into a believer with this mind-blowing review:

    "I put half of my fresh strawberries in the medium-sized container and left the other half in the clamshell container they came in from the store. And here they are 10 days later!!! The berry I left in the original container looked dehydrated and blemished, with wrinkled, crunchy leaves. (I'm not eating the leaves, but still.) But the produce-saver strawb's as fresh as it was on day one! Not that I wouldn't eat the dehydrated one if that was my only option, but given the choice? I'll take a fresh strawberry every day!"

    Get them from Amazon for $26.99 each (three containers).

    33. Mimosa cubes that'll make INSTANT mimosas for you whenever you've run out of juice. You just grab the flavored cube you want, pluck it into a glass of bubbly, let that baby fizz up, and boom — mimosa time in literal seconds with no juice necessary.

    mimosa cubes lined up like the rectangle-sized pill trays in plastic packaging.
    Teaspressa / Via

    You'll get two Peaches & Berries trios (peach, raspberry, and strawberry) and two Citrus trios (Arcadia orange, lemon, and grapefruit).

    Get them from Uncommon Goods for $30.

    34. A zipper-puller so you'll never have to worry about not having a parent, friend, or significant other around to zip up your outfits again.


    Promising review: "I bought a dress with a back zip ('invisible zipper' too, i.e. tiny!) recently from Ann Taylor. Getting into it and zipping it all the way up was nearly impossible unless I wanted to start cussing and sweating buckets throughout the whole ordeal. I came across this neat little gadget and chose Zipuller because it was more affordable and the reviews were solid. I received it this morning and tried it on the aforementioned dress. Let me tell you, it worked like a charm, even on that tiny zipper of mine. Just follow the instructions and you can NOT go wrong, IMHO. It's worth the money. It's a clothing accessory investment that I feel ALL gals and guys ought to have." —Chicago888

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in three colors).

    35. Washing machine tablets to make laundry day a less irritating experience since they prevent mildew and mold from growing in your washer and reversing all the work you do to your clothes and linens. Buying an entirely new washer? Psssshh! That's for adult-adults and we'll be pushing that very sophisticated purchase back a bit.


    Promising review: "I have been using bleach to clean my machine for some time, but decided to give this a try a few months ago. My very first clean with Affresh tablets left me surprised and delighted for not only did it clean my machine, but it also eliminated the nasty smell that always transferred to my clothes thanks to a build-up of mold I didn't even know about. Every month now, I toss a tablet into the drum and let it work its magic. Now, my machine is cleaner than ever, and my clothes always smell wonderfully fresh." —Kelli Crawford

    Get them from Amazon for $11.98 (for a pack of six).

    36. Biotin shampoo that's formulated to help people experiencing hair loss and is infused with jojoba oil which will help moisturize the scalp and prevent dandruff.

    Also, if you're wondering whether or not this shampoo will work for kinkier textures, then you'll be happy to know that one reviewer with a 4C curl pattern said this shampoo helped to restore her hair's thickness after a Dominican blowout thinned her strands.

    Promising review: "I love this shampoo! I had gastric sleeve surgery and my hair was very, very thin. I started taking biotin and switched to biotin shampoo as recommended by my doctor. It doesn’t make your hair grow by washing it but it makes your hair and roots stronger. And it worked. After using the whole bottle, my hair was stronger. I had a lot of new growth that was sticking around (the previous new growth fell out early on) and my hair was getting thicker. Eight months later, my hair is back to normal. It's longer and thicker than ever. I still use it twice a week and love it! I’m not crazy about the way it smells but others love it when they smell my hair." —Diane J. Huff

    37. A soft and lightweight sleep mask that'll cover the majority of your face and totally black out any light so you can finally get all the ZZZ's you deserve and be ready to tackle adulting with a well-rested enthusiasm. It even has a nose flap so no light can sneak in through there!

    Promising review: "Normally I don't write reviews but I felt I had to say that this is the most comfortable eye mask I have ever worn. It's extremely soft to the touch. It feels so good on the face and completely blocks out any light. I don't even notice the two adjustable head straps because they are also so comfortable. I normally work 12-hour night shifts so I'm sleeping through the day. I always had issues with constantly waking up even with blackout curtains because the sunlight was still getting around them, but since I've started wearing the mask, I have had no disrupted sleep and I am dead to the world during the day with this on." —Chibimuffin

    Get it on Amazon for $9.99 (available in three styles and two colors).

    38. High-waist opaque leggings for anyone who finds regular pants uncomfortable and craves a pants-less life. Reviewers say that these will meet your needs ~and~ keep your undies concealed.,

    Heading to the gym? Leggings. Lounging on the couch? Leggings. Time of the month? Definitely leggings. Date night? Sweater dress on top of leggings. It's a lifestyle.

    Promising review: "To start I’m 5’7” and 225 pounds. I opened the package and couldn’t wait to start taking pics! I ordered the plus size. The length was good. The feel is super soft. The high belly actually does go up high. Love it! The back is high as well. Love it! They aren't see-through at all. I wore dark panties and can’t see the color. They fit a little long at my ankles but that I love. Having long legs it was a concern. The waistband is 3 inches wide and doesn’t cut into my waist. These have a great second-skin fit! I checked out the seams and not one problem. They have a warm feel as well... I’m very happy with this purchase and plan to buy more colors." —Annette S.

    Get them from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in one-size-fits all options for straight and plus sizes; 22 colors).

    39. A Drop Stop seat gap filler because losing stuff to that seemingly bottomless pit next to your car seat is really, really annoying. Finally, you won't have to stick your hands down there and stretch your fingers nearly out of their joints trying to grab your cell phone or fallen fries.


    Promising review: "I've used these for a couple of years now and can't count the number of times I've been grateful for them! I used to drop things between my seat and the console all the time, or not be sure where I dropped them and have to look like crazy to find them. Now, I know they're not in that dark, hard-to-reach space, and they're much easier to find. I can tuck my umbrella and coupon envelope there and know they won't get spilled on. When I do spill on the Drop Stops, it wipes right up with a damp cloth or wipes. They don't show at all and always look clean." —B. Gifford

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $19.99.

    40. A heavy-duty car trash bag so your car can stop resembling the messy room you kept in grade school when you still lived with your parents.


    This car trash can also come with a free pack of 10 liners. Once you're done with the free liners, you can re-up with a fresh pack of liners from the same brand which are sold separately.

    Promising review: "I love this thing! It has a thick protective plastic sewed on the inside so cleaning up spills is super easy. Plus, it came with a roll of plastic garbage bags that fit perfectly inside. It's a heavy-duty car trash bag and very good quality. I was honestly expecting something thin and flimsy. That is not what I got at all. It holds quite a bit of trash. I'm a mother of two and car junk adds up really fast. So glad I bought this because it has come in handy." —BonBon

    Get it from Amazon for $13.97+ (available in two sizes and two quantity options) and a 40-count pack of liners for $9.99.

    41. Green Gobbler Drain Clog Dissolver that'll gobble up hair and other gunk taking up space in your drains in minutes. You can use it for toilets, sinks, and tubs.

    a green bottle with two openings with twist-off caps at the top of it.

    Green Gobbler is plant-based, biodegradable (yayyy environment!), odorless, and non-corrosive so it won't damage your pipes during the cleaning process.

    Promising review: "OK... So I have to do a little review on this product BECAUSE I have had a stopped-up kitchen sink and have LITERALLY tried EVERYTHING down to the industrial products with NO luck. I decided to go on Amazon and read a few reviews. This is the one I decided to go with. I only used one chamber, let it sit for an hour, and then used boiling water. My sink is NO LONGER stopped up!!! I saved a plumber bill and this was $11.97. HUGE win for this woman!!" —Tabpeach

    Get it from Amazon for $11.97

    42. Wood polish and conditioner that'll resurrect even the most high-traffic wood surfaces in your house. One scroll through the before-and-after pictures for this product on Amazon and it'll be very clear why it has so many five-star reviews.

    Sigh. Am I the only one who finds before-and-after photos like this so freakishly satisfying?!

    Promising review: "OMG! This is the most AMAZING product! We inherited some antique furniture from the '30s that had been in storage forever... It was dry and dirty and not much to look at. I used this product on it and the oak wood literally came alive showing the beautiful grain and texture of the wood. I have since used it on my oak kitchen cabinets and they look AMAZING! I will never use anything else other than this product on my wood surfaces! No greasy feel... fantastic smell!" —Tiffany Sadowski

    Get a bottle on Amazon for $8.48.

    ALSO, if your wood issues are a tad more serious, you may want to try their other (also with over 1,000 reviews!) product called Restore-A-Finish since it works harder on scratches and marks that are tougher to remove. The two products are made to be used together. Get that on Amazon for $8.48.

    43. A cozy beanie hat with a hole so you never have to sacrifice your hairstyle for being warm. It will accommodate high ponies, messy buns, and top knots.

    Promising review: "I always wear my hair in a bun or ponytail during the winter because I hate fixing my hair when it's always cold. So I always resort to a beanie. Some beanies I have fit me differently so I have to adjust my bun/ponytail to fit with whatever beanie I decide to wear for the day. I never thought there were beanies that would accommodate my hair until recently. I purchased the metallic blue. Love love love!!! The color is so pretty and now I can wear it with my hair in a big fat messy bun, regular tight bun, or a ponytail. It's my new everyday go-to beanie for winter! I even purchased several more as gifts for family members." —ABB

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in a variety of colors).

    44. Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Cleaning Pads to scrub away marks and stains on any surface in your house. This baby is designed to make everything in your life from the windows to the walls (word to Lil Jon) sparkle like new again!,

    Promising review: "For years I have heard about the Magic Eraser from friends, family, and even co-workers. Not sure what took me so long to try it out, but when I did, all I can say is 'WOW'! I had embedded stains from makeup and who knows what on the bathroom sink which I scrubbed with baking soda. I even soft-scrubbed with bleach and the stains didn't come all the way out. ONE TRY with the Magic Eraser and BAM! Stains are gone. Then, I decided to try it on the black toaster oven, where I accidentally left a loaf of bread and the plastic melted into the top. I washed it, rubbed it, and used everything I could think of, but that thin layer of plastic wouldn't budge. In comes the Magic Eraser and it came off right away. No kidding. The name says it all because this stuff is truly magic!" —GDB

    45. Silicone baking mat sheets so throwing cookies, rolls, and other tasty things into the oven can be a non-messy situation your belly will be so grateful for. These sheets will require no oil, cooking sprays, or parchment paper.


    They're safe for up to 480 degrees and can be used inside of pans OR underneath them in the oven to catch anything that boils over. Mess-free cooking = GOALS, ya'll.

    Promising review: "These baking mats are absolutely fantastic. The quality is superb, and SUCH a good price. I use them for just about everything I put in the oven from oven pizzas to cookies. You name it! I also love that besides food sliding easily off the non-stick surface, that they help protect all my baking sheets and such. It’s also super handy to just throw them in the top shelf of the dishwasher or even just wipe clean... I’ve had these mats and used them almost daily for almost a year now. They still look brand new and I have had no problems with staining, melting, or the mats becoming worn. When using them, I cook most items at 375 degrees but have used them at up to 425 degrees several times with no issues so far... These things are fantastic and have paid for themselves many times over with the superior non-stick surface, ease of clean up, and the cost of parchment paper and or/aluminum foil I used prior to discovering these." —Jezzhani

    Get them from Amazon for $13.99+.

    46. A travel neck pillow that totally looks like an infinity scarf but don't let the appearance fool ya'. The snug, adjustable fit will ensure that your head and neck are positioned properly whenever you're traveling and trying to sleep while sitting up on the go. It's only a half of a pound so it'll fit inside luggage easily and it's machine-washable.,

    Promising review: "This is probably my 10th attempt at a travel pillow. A few things about me: I can only sleep sitting on the right side of the plane because I can only sleep while leaning on my right side. I can't live or fly without my Bose headphones and most pillows don't pair comfortably with over-the-ear headphones. Also, in flight, I sleep with my glasses on just in case of an emergency. I NEED TO SEE what's going down. Lastly, I typically wear a scarf in flight because I don't like my neck to be cold. For the aforementioned reasons, THIS PILLOW ROCKS! It does the job of supporting a side sleeper like myself while pairing perfectly with my headphones and glasses. Last but not least, I didn't need to bring a scarf. No more bobblehead sleeping and it's compact in size... Who cares if it looks crazy? I like to stand out!" —DST Seven

    Get it from Amazon for $25+ (available in seven styles and in sets)

    47. A reading light so you can keep the good times rolling when the book is getting too good to turn the lights out — without disturbing anyone else in the house.

    It'll also work well to add extra light to your laptop so you're not straining your eyes if you ever have to hunker over it at night.

    Promising review: "This light has exceeded my expectations. It's sturdy and practical. In the past, I've had lights flop over and fall off my book completely but this light is well designed. The neck adjusts in lots of ways without compromising its grip on the book. The light has three options in brightness but what I love most is the quality of the light. It is warmer than other book lights. It has been nice reading in bed at night when my husband is sleeping. The low setting doesn't bother him and I'm still able to read. This light is rechargeable so you won't have to mess with batteries. I loved this light so much I bought one for my dad. My mom says he uses it every night and couldn't be happier." —Sherry

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    48. An internet address and password log book for anyone who can't remember a password to save their life and always needs to request a password reset before they can actually live their best life. This lil' book will keep up with login info for social media, online banking, and school portals so things can get done without a password delay.,

    Promising review: "When we have so many internet addresses and passwords to remember, it gets really hard — especially when you get older and have trouble remembering what silly password you gave something. And, we are supposed to change or update passwords from time to time, so this is a great tool to help us do that. It certainly makes more sense than scribbling on a random piece of paper on your desk and then misplacing it. The trick, however, is to not misplace the book!" —Carole P

    49. A flat iron that way too many reviewers praised for getting their hair laid and slayed without the threat of heat damage. It'll also come with a style guide, a one-year warranty, and a bonus travel-size argan oil leave-in hair treatment.

    This flat iron straightens and curls hair with eight heat balance micro-sensors in its plates to make sure the heat is distributed evenly so you don't fry your hair off. The heat ranges from 145 to 450 degrees so you can control the temperature, unlike other flat irons that heat up to one temperature with no adjustment capabilities.

    Promising review: "I purchased this flat iron simply based on reviews and I am soooo glad I did! I was skeptical about the size since my hair is so thick but I can literally do ONE pass and I’m done! My hair always comes out silky straight and flawless! It's most def worth the purchase!" —Ariel Woods

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95.

    50. Moisturizing cream for anyone who works with their hands a lot and will need an extra ~hand~ with keeping them hydrated and healthy.

    Promising review: "I wasn't sure if this would work since I've tried a lot of hand cream. I work in a warehouse and deal with forklifts and boxes, and I wash my hands constantly. I just purchased this a few days ago and I tried it as soon as I got it. On my first use, I saw a difference in how soft my hands and the dry cuticles are actually softer. I love this product. Can't wait to see how my hands will look in a couple of weeks." —Claire P.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.29

    51. A cooktop cleaning kit so you can treat yourself to a brand new stove without actually having to spend the hundreds of dollars it usually costs to snag one. The kit comes with a 10-ounce bottle of Cerama Bryte Cooktop Cleaner, one cleaning pad, and one scraper.

    Promising review: "I tried EVERYTHING for two years to get the ring of baked-on grime off of our stovetop. Nothing worked. I figured I’d give this product a go since the kit was just $10. IT’S AMAZING. A little scrape with the razor and a few scrubs with the cleaner and pad. BOOM! Nasty rings around the burners are GONE!" —OperaDiva

    Get it from Amazon for $10.88+ (available in two kit options)

    52. Bottle Bright tablets so you can stop feeling that little tug of doubt every time you sip from your favorite water bottle about whether or not you got ~every~ bit of nastiness out of it the last time you cleaned it. These tablets will remove the bacteria, stains, and odors that are often left in water bottles and coffee tumblers. Sip in peace, peeps!

    Promising review: "At work, we have stainless steel coffee pots with a plastic top that no one cleans and they are often left on for hours at a time. The bottoms got very gross and someone tried to clean them with hot water and soap but not much happened. I bought these, added hot water and two tablets (since they are bigger than a water bottle), and let the pots sit overnight. So much came off with no scrubbing! I then soaked again for about another hour with two more tablets and almost all of the grime was gone. I did scrub just a tiny bit to get all the stains out with a brush I had... They are almost like new! I did this on two pots and we were all amazed by the results. I'm ordering more so that we can clean regularly since it’s so easy!" —Heather

    Get it from Amazon for $8 (available in two quantities)

    53. A diamond cleaning stick that'll remove the gunk from your jewelry and make it shine like the day you got it.

    Promising review: "Trust me. This PAINS me to say this. My wallet is hurting. This $5 stick outperforms my $90 jewelry steamer. Forget the jewelry store cleaning. Do it at home and your rings will look BETTER. I have a morganite band that I seldom wore because the stones are impossible to clean and they're ugly when they're cloudy....well... The morganite now looks good as new." —Jenna

    Get it from Amazon for $5.49.

    54. An attachable silicone colander so draining things doesn't have to be so... ya' know... draining. It'll work for your pots, pans, and bowls.


    It's dishwasher-safe, FDA-approved, and it'll save you space those larger sifts usually take up.

    Promising reviews: "This is the coolest kitchen gadget I've bought in a long time. No filling the dishwasher with huge colanders. You snap this on your cooking pot and drain. Then, after a quick wash in the sink and you're done. It holds securely and I've only lost a few noodles over the top edge when the pan was too small for what I was making. I made angel hair pasta fully expecting it to go all through the holes like a regular colander and they didn't even poke through let alone come out!" —Holly B. Nash

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in four colors)

    55. A three-in-one avocado slicer that'll turn you into even more of an avocado-eating pro! It'll cut the veggie in half, remove the pit, and pluck out what's left in perfect slices so you don't spend so much time fighting with an avocado and you can just enjoy it.


    Promising review: "High quality. The feature that sets this apart from cheaper tools is the pit remover. I actually cut my palm and needed stitches removing a pit with a knife. Then someone told me about tools like this. The slicer part also works fine for me and saves a lot of time over manual slicing. Clean up is simple. Run water over it in the sink. Then, put it in the dinnerware basket in the dishwasher. Great gift idea!" —W.S.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    56. A handy-dandy device that'll light up when you need a reminder to stop neglecting your self-care duties and DRINK MORE WATER YOU WALKING DESERT!


    Promising review: "I love this thing! It's my second one. I'm getting a lot of feedback on it at work. It works great and does what it's supposed to do. I'm now getting my two liters of water throughout the workday!" —April

    Get it from Amazon for $25 (available in nine colors).
