    37 Things That Are Probs Good To Keep On Hand This Spring, Just In Case

    Unless you were planning on not getting a single mosquito bite this spring...in which case you can keep scrolling.

    1. A mosquito repellent that creates a 15-foot skeeter-free zone because these pesky bloodsuckers have ruined far too many spring days by making it absolutely miserable to be outside.

    Promising review: "I bought this because I was looking for an effective insect repellant for my patio this spring/summer. I didn't want a bulky candle or tiki torch that smelled like canola oil. I found the Thermacell. It looked modern and promising. We tried it and it works really well. It also produces no smell or sound. We live in the south where mosquitos are really awful and the Thermacell made sitting on our patio tolerable! Definitely recommend." —Trusted Customer

    2. And a high-voltage bug zapper so you can say goodbye to not only mosquitoes, but also gnats, flies, moths, and other insects within a 1,500-square-foot area.

    Promising review: "You will not be disappointed. I just moved out to the country and have been working out in the garage late at night. With the weather getting warmer, I've had the garage doors opened and mosquitos, gnats, and everything else have been finding there way into my garage, so I had to do something about it. I bought this and hung it next to my garage door opener because there's an outlet there and it is way better than expected. I have dead bees, stink bugs, gnats, mosquitoes, and other bugs that I do not know what they are. My 8-year-old son keeps asking me to remove the bottom tray so he can see all of the dead bugs that got zapped. Again, you will not be disappointed, I'm extremely happy I bought this!" —Chris & Jenny

    3. An immunity-boosting allergy supplement to help your poor pup find relief from itchy skin and seasonal allergies. These soft chews deliver a dose of probiotics and other nutrients to help improve immune function, aid digestion, promote healthy skin, and add shine to a dog's coat.

    Promising review: "My dog loves these. We live in the south so allergies are pretty serious here. When spring came around I noticed he was constantly gnawing at his paw and wasn’t eating as much as he used to. I did some research and found this product. I was skeptical, as he’s kind of picky, but he is obsessed with them. He waits at the pantry door every morning for them. He thinks they are treats. I noticed — within hours — that he was no longer gnawing at his paw and his appetite was also back to normal. When he finished his first tube of these, I decided to wait to order more and see if they really worked or if his allergies just wore off. A few weeks went by and I noticed him gnawing at his paw again and not eating. I ordered them Sunday and he’s back on them again. He was so excited to see them again and is no longer gnawing at his paw :)" —Alyssa

    4. Plus an air purifier for anyone who's felt personally victimized by spring allergies. This bad boy removes dander, mold, dust, and pollen in the air to help you breathe better.

    Promising review: "I have severe allergies during the spring and summer months and have tried everything from nettie pots to OTC allergy medicine to get some sort of relief. If you saw my trash cans they were full of used tissues and I was still constantly sneezing. I saw immediate results with the first few days. I use it at night in my bedroom I have the setting on '2,' which is at the medium setting. The noise level is not that bad; I can still hear the television and hold a normal conversation with my husband. The noise level tends to go away or blend once you get used to it. The results are great. I still have the occasional sneeze and have to use a tissue every now and then but, I am nowhere near what I was. I can finally breathe at night without having to take the OTC medicine. This has been a true lifesaver for me. I will be looking to purchase another one after our renovations are completed in our kitchen/living room. Best purchase ever to get a sense of normalcy in my life." —P. Allen

    5. A CeraVe salicylic acid body wash if warmer spring weather is causing your keratosis pilaris to flare up. It exfoliates without the harsh microbeads, erasing rough and bumpy skin while leaving behind moisturizing hyaluronic acid and calming niacinamide.

    Promising review: "My 6-year-old daughter has keratosis pilaris, commonly known as 'chicken skin.' This year it really flared up during warm weather so I gave this wash along with lotion a try. Wow, I saw results after just a few uses and after a couple of weeks most of her bumps disappeared. Thrilled we skipped a trip to the dermatologist! Can’t beat this price for the results either." —Ashley Steigerwald

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    6. A waterproof black mascara because you dream of fluttery lashes that actually hold a voluminous curl when it's hot and humid outside. It's lightweight, won't transfer, doesn't smudge, and lasts all day — what more could you ask for?

    Promising review: "This waterproof formula stays put and comes off with my regular makeup remover lotions and gels, or when using more portable makeup wipes when I travel. I alternate back and forth between this and their Voluminous Power Volume 24H mascara all through spring and summer and for swim and non-swim days. This doesn’t smudge in heat or humidity (I tested it in San Francisco both day and night in summer), and while I don’t recommend sleeping in any mascara as it’s not great for your eyelashes to do that, this definitely survives swimming then cat naps in very cold salt water and in full sun." —Thinking...

    7. lawn repair formula that'll regrow the grass that died over the winter so you have something to mow this spring! It's designed for reversing scorch marks from your pet's urine, damage from their digging, and wear in high traffic areas.

    Promising review: "I used this in the spring to fill out our lawn more, and it worked great! I was worried because I feel like you always hear grass seed horror stories, but I just raked our lawn good, spread seeds all over, and watered it once (sometimes twice) per day and it filled the lawn in beautifully!" —Mariah

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in five sizes and four styles).

    8. An inflatable pool so you can make your sunny dreams of relaxing in a pool with a glass of sweet tea a reality — even if you have a small backyard.

    Promising review: "Good size. I'm 5'4 and I bought it for my 3-year-old and 2-year-old for the spring and summer. I didn't need anything huge; I have a nice size deck and we spend a lot of time on the deck so I wanted something big enough for them to have some wiggle room to keep cool but not too big so it wouldn't take up to much room. I also purchased an outdoor grass rug to put it on to protect the bottom of it and keep it from getting splinters (just a suggestion if you plan on using on the deck). It has a drain plug so cleaning and getting fresh water is not hard at all." —Majestic 0220

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95.

    9. And a stunning ruffle V-neck one-piece to wear while you dip your toes in the pool.

    Promising review: "This swimsuit is sexy, comfortable, and affordable. Love it. Would give it 10 stars. Bought it in red and olive." —Holly

    10. A devastatingly effective handheld vacuum for sucking up pet hair during spring, aka shedding season. It has a special rubber nozzle that picks up fur with ease, especially on hard-to-vacuum areas like stairs. There's no bag, so simply pop off the canister when you're done vacuuming and dump the contents in the trash.

    Promising review: "I have two large dogs with free roam of our home. They both have short hair but they shed, especially in the spring. This little handheld vacuum is INCREDIBLE for getting fur out of upholstery. It does blow air out the side so it's not good for dust bunnies in the corners of hard floors as it blows it around. But I bought it specifically for the couch and has found it even vacuums the fur off the sheets between washes very nicely without sucking them up like a regular size vacuum does. Perfect for the purpose it was intended for." —HRW
