    "This stuff is strong, meaning you can use it to fix broken flower pots, mend your gadgets, and use it to do general repairs. I recently used it to reapply a chunk of wood I took out of my desk while putting it together, so I'm convinced it can really do everything."—Alice Prendergast

    20. A box of wax strips that'll help you skip a trip to the salon. They're gentle and nourishing, but will grab onto every last stubborn little hair.

    May Ning/BuzzFeed

    I prefer waxing to shaving because it lasts longer and feels way smoother, but when lockdown happened, I wasn't able to visit my aesthetician for waxes anymore. So, I decided to try doing it myself.

    I came across these bad boys and decided to give them a shot. Lemme tell ya, they got my skin feeling softer than a baby's butt. These strips have saved me so much time and money (each strip actually opens into two, so you'll get 40 waxes from a box of 20). And I even find them gentle enough to use for my eyebrows (all I do is give the strips a little snip). Plus, they come with two cleaning wipes that help remove any stubborn leftover residue.

    Get a pack of 20 from Amazon for $9.44+. Also available in a pack of 40.

    21. A set of tweezers that'll grab onto any stragglers. The differently-shaped ends are great for a whole bunch of tasks, like placing falsies or digging out ingrowns.

    Amazon / Via

    Get a pack of four from Amazon Canada for $7.99.

    22. These hydrocolloid bandages that'll protect you from painful blisters. They're waterproof, meaning you can go about your pool or beach day (and even keep them on in the shower).

    Victoria Kuglin / Via BuzzFeed

    "Unlike other bandages, these are practically invisible, which means I can wear them all summer long without worrying that my feet look like a disaster. They don't just work on open wounds — they're great at reducing chafing and irritation from uncomfy shoes and reduce blisters and swelling, too."—Victoria Kuglin

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $6.99.

    23. A dry shampoo that'll keep you feeling fresh and clean between wash days, especially if you wear hats or sweat a lot in the summer. It'll also give you a boost of volume, making your 'do look full and glamorous.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $8.97.

    24. A natural hand soap that'll help you keep your paws clean without drying out your skin. It also contains a bunch of essential oils that'll remove any stinky odours from your hands.

    "This is, hands down, the best household soap I've ever used. The soft floral smell is particularly refreshing, and a huge improvement over all the artificial scents on the market. It doesn't leave my hands feeling tacky or gritty afterwards, so I can spend less time at the sink and more time actually living my life."—Victoria Kuglin

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $5.97.

    25. A pack of detergent strips that'll save you laundry room space and reduce your disposable plastic waste. One strip will clean an entire load, so you won't have to mess around with measurements and drips.

    It comes with two small straws, three large straws, and a drawstring pouch.

    Get a pack of five from Amazon Canada for $23.95.

    28. A bottle of fabric freshener that'll completely eliminate stinky smells from furniture and hard-to-clean fabrics. It's made with a bacteria-killing technology that'll actually get rid of the odour source, instead of just covering it up.

    Get a pack of ten from Amazon Canada for $9.29.

    30. A pack of pain-relief patches that'll provide a soothing cold/hot sensation to your tense muscles. Since they're topical, they'll provide targeted relief to any sore spots in an instant.

    May Ning/BuzzFeed

    I like these patches because they're less messy than their cream counterparts, and they stay in place. The size is perfect too, since I normally have a point of tension rather than an entire part of my body. I literally type for a living, so my hands and wrists are constantly sore. I stick a few of these patches on, and it helps me type away pain-free (they're also great for sticking on your wrists to keep your laptop edge from digging into them).

    Get a box of 40 from Amazon Canada for $6.77.

    31. This rubber stopper that'll catch hair before it clumps up in your drain. And when you want to take a bath, a tap of your finger is all it takes to turn into a full drain plug.

    Victoria Kuglin/BuzzFeed

    "I didn't know I could have a favourite drain plug, but here we are! I love that it's nearly invisible in my bathtub, and the soft edges make it a great companion to bath time (read: It doesn't hurt if I accidentally sit on it). Plus, it's super handy if you're always forgetting to pop in the drain catcher."—Victoria Kuglin

    Get it in grey from Amazon Canada for $10.16.

    32. A Gilette razor that'll help you get the smoothest shave of your life. It has five ultra-thin blades and a responsive ball joint that'll help reduce razor burns and cuts.

    Amazon / Via

    It comes with two refill heads.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $10.98+. Also available with three or six refills.

    33. And a shaving cream that'll help it glide across your skin. You'll be able to use it wet or dry, so you can shave even when you don't feel like getting in the shower. It's packed with hydrating ingredients like shea butter, so you won't need to use lotion after.

    Amazon / Via

    Since it's not in an aerosol can, you can travel with it, too.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $1.99.

    34. A pack of purse-friendly disinfecting wipes that'll help you clean any surface with confidence. They'll kill 99.99% of germs, but are still safe to use on your phone or car.

    Get a pack of 30 from Amazon Canada for $2.99.

    35. And lastly, this mini broom and dust pan set that'll help you sweep up smaller messes in a jiffy. It's also really easy to store, since the brush fits perfectly in the dust pan.

    "I know I reached adulthood when this lil' kit got me SO👏🏻FREAKIN'👏🏻EXCITED👏🏻. The slim shape is absolutely genius, tucking easily between bottles of cleaning sprays and miscellaneous under-the-sink items and saving me tons of storage space. Thanks to the silicone rimming, I can easily sweep every last fleck of debris into the dust pan, and the palm-sized broom is compact enough to fit where normal ones just can't go (like between appliances or under the sofa). Consider me swept away by this mini gizmo!"—Victoria Kuglin
