    1. A stainless steel tongue scraper to banish bad bacteria and improve stinky breath.

    Reviewer before and after showing the scraper removed a brown film that was on their tongue
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "It's insane that I never realized how much gunk was on my tongue in the mornings. Pretty disgusting actually. My mouth feels extra clean after using this. Great quality stainless steel. To sanitize it, I just dip it in a pot of boiling water for a few minutes. The only thing others may have an issue with is storage as it doesn't come with a case or anything. Simple solution, though. I put up a small hook next to my toothpaste and toothbrush and hang it on that." —Alexis T.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.95.

    2. A bra liner so you, a sweaty person, can just exist without the dreaded under-boob sweat. I don't care that it's winter; I. Will. Still. Sweat.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I am a sweat-er and therefore it's very uncomfortable to sweat under your bra and then be wet. I am so happy with this product. No more being wet and having embarrassing sweat marks." —Lola

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95 (available in three colors).

    3. A Squatty Potty, because a bout of constipation shouldn't leave you down in the ~dumps~. Squatting changes the angle of your anal canal, opening it up so it's easier for things to exit.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "What can I say? The process of excretion can only be compared to a real life exorcism where it feels, pleasantly if I may add, that the devil himself is trying to burst out of your gut. Needless to say, the stool changed my life. I found myself creating excuses to run to my magical place and discharge whatever little portion of food was left inside me; I was hooked. Soon people started wondering why I've become so distant; the stool had taken over my life. It would have taken over your life too if you would have experienced the kind of pleasure that I was now enjoying; it was my high." —Dino

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    4. An acne patch for those days when a pimple pops up at the *worst* possible moment. Hydrocolloid, tea tree oil, and calendula oil are gentle on the skin while still drawing out fluids and pus from your pimple.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I cannot say enough about these patches! They are my skin savior! I actually gave myself a facial where I pushed up all the blackheads and whiteheads from my pores, which is why there is so much puss on the patches (gross, I know), but I couldn’t believe all of that was trapped in my skin!! Woke up and removed the patches, not a single pimple! If I would've not put these on, guaranteed I would have woken to multiple pimples in the area. I usually break out when I try to exfoliate and extract, so I only do it when my pores start to look huge and filled (yuck). I am now a true believer, leave the 'spot treatment' creams and switch to these! They will pull out that white head and reduce your pimple to practically nothing overnight! And it’s safer than a cream that just brings all that gunk to the surface but doesn’t actually remove it... then when you do you're left with an oozing pre-scar for the rest of the day! I am now a monthly subscriber. I will never use anything else. In fact, just ordered the XL acne patches to pull out more gunk on my forehead (live in AZ, constantly sweating and naturally oily). Thank you for making such a great product!!" —jennifer9

    Our in-depth review of Avarelle's acne patches gets into the nitty-gritty — why they work, how to use them, and why 22,000+ people can't stop raving about them.

    5. An eco-friendly hard water stain remover that'll quickly replace the cleanser you were using. It's biodegradable so the scent won't singe your nose hairs and make you gag, plus it's safe enough to use on just about anything — including shower glass, tile, granite, stainless steel, marble, brass, and porcelain.

    Reviewer before and after showing the cleaner removed hard water stains on a glass shower door
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I honestly only bought this product because of the money-back guarantee, thinking that there was no way anything would rid me of the hard water stains on the glass shower doors that I inherited from a former tenant. The stains were unlike anything I had ever dealt with and not being able to get rid of them filled me with frustration and then rage. I had tried lemon juice, vinegar, baking soda, toilet bowl cleaner, a headlight cleaning kit and even a professional strength cleaning acid, combined with hours of scrubbing by hand and finally with an oscillating scrub attachment for my power drill. I'm not saying that this product works quickly, but that fact that it works at all has me overjoyed! After an hour of using my oscillating scrub attachment, I have completely cleared away a chunk of the stains on the door, which honestly I did not think was possible before today. I am so relieved that I will soon be rid of these embarrassing stains. Very happy with this product and can't wait to tackle the rest of the shower!" —Emmy

    Get it from Amazon for $15.29.

    6. A mineral sunscreen if you're one of those — and forgive my language — dumdums who's not wearing sunscreen. C'mon now! Sunscreen, y'all! Every day! It's a little embarrassing if you're not doing this already!

    Model wearing the sunscreen
    Versed

    Promising review: "I have tried every affordable sunscreen for daily use and haven’t loved all the qualities of a single one. This product is fantastic! It is slightly tinted and soaks into my skin well without feeling greasy or oily all day. For cost, ingredient list and finish this can’t be beat!" —Anonymous

    Get it from Versed for $21.99.

    7. And don't forget a before-you-go toilet spray to hide any evidence. Even if you're one of those weirdly confident people who can poop in a house full of people without issue, having this in your bathroom for others can calm nervous pooers.

    The spray
    Amazon

    Promising review: "New Year's Day 2019 I wake up at my friend's house after a night of partying to the smell of fresh coffee and bacon frying in the kitchen. So I get up and say good morning to everyone, get me some coffee, and think to myself, 'Hey! The entire house smells like bacon. It's probably an opportune time for me to 'drop the kids off at the pool' because no one will notice anything I'm making in the bathroom over what Michelle is making in her kitchen.' Anyway, I look on top of the bowl and there's this stuff. For added protection against embarrassment, I pump a couple of sprays into the bowl and do my stuff. Yup now I totally smell bacon and oranges, but not a whiff of anything else that might cause my friends to ask me if I need to see a doctor or something. So now I keep a bottle with me just in case I'm in one of those situations when I have, you know, a brown dog scratching at the back door, but don't want anyone to know that I'm letting him out." —D. Grieco Jr.

    Get the original citrus scent from Amazon for $8.50 (available in a variety of scents and sizes).

    8. A dandruff shampoo so you can banish white flakes from your scalp. It's made with ketoconazole 1%, an antifungal ingredient that'll tell your dandruff it's no longer welcome here.

    Reviewer's before and after photos showing the shampoo got rid of their significant dandruff
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "MIRACLE PRODUCT! If you have a flaky scalp from dandruff, BUY THIS. I was about to go to the dermatologist if this stuff didn’t work. Thank goodness I saved myself hundreds of dollars by giving this product a shot. I used it four of five times (over a month) and it cleared my scalp almost completely. One more use and my scalp will be 120% healed! This stuff blew my mind. Totally worth it." —chris

    Get it from Amazon for $14.84+ (also available in a two-pack).

    9. A mold and mildew remover because you can set it, forget it, and come back in a few hours to see grout that looks like new. I'm talking basically every speck of black mold is gone! *Cues up "Do You Believe in Magic"*

    Progression photo showing dark mold and mildew on shower tile grout disappearing overnight
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "You guys. I’m embarrassed to even show you this. The grout around our tub was DISGUSTING. It was never caulked right and it got gross very quickly. I would scrub. The cleaning lady would scrub. It would get worse. Well, I came across this in a BuzzFeed list, and this stuff made me curious. I don’t know why it doesn’t have 10,000 good reviews. Seriously. All I did was squeeze it on and walk away. I let it sit overnight. Check this out. Buy it. Like today." —KarynB

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    10. A pumice cleaning stone for powering through tough rust, lime, and calcium streaks you have to explain to your S.O. are not poop stains — you swear! Give your tired arms a break and let this little guy scrub away discoloration with ease. This non-toxic cleaner is tough on dirt but gentle on porcelain so you can sit atop the glistening throne you deserve.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have very hard water that leaves hard-water buildup and nasty stains. It’s embarrassing to have guests over because the toilets are so gross! I have tried so many products and cleaning solutions — from natural essential oils to harsh chemicals so strong I was lightheaded for the rest of the day. Well, I tried out this pumice stone after reading about it in a BuzzFeed article, and honestly the hype is real! It does take some elbow grease, but the after picture is from only 20 minutes of scrubbing, light enough that I didn’t break a sweat! The stone does get used up, but I think this one should last me a couple years at least. So if you have embarrassing toilets, try this!" —Stephanie Ray

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    11. Or a pack of vegan disinfectant toilet tablets that'll sanitize your bowl and keep it smelling fresh without you ever having to break a sweat.

    White bath bombs
    Juniperseed Mercantile / Etsy

    Juniperseed Mercantile is a Colorado-based woman-owned small biz run by science teacher Tiffany Norton. It specializes in all-natural cleaning, skincare, bath, and body products.

    Promising review: "Like a bath bomb for your toilet! Works great, smells great, toilets were just as clean but with none of the chemicals! Fast shipping too! Thank you!” —Erin Horender

    Get them from Juniperseed Mercantile on Etsy for $2.50 (or a pack of five for $10).

    12. A pair of seamless brief underwear if you're constantly battling annoying panty lines since all you wear these days are leggings.

    Nubian Skin

    Nubian Skin is a small Black woman-owned business created by Ade Hassan, who was frustrated by the lack of "nude" options offered by most underwear companies.

    Get it from Nubian Skin for $25 (available in sizes XS–XXL and four colors).

    13. A grout paint pen to cover up the mortifyingly large amount of dirt and grime that has fallen into the cracks. It works like a regular marker, so even the people who failed art can use it. And it beats actually having to clean! 🙃

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I don't hate my old tile as much! My husband and I renovated our ground level to an entertaining area. The tile on the other hand was old and just would have cost way too much money to pull up. Needless to say, the area came out amazing. Now I don't hate the tile because the grout was so dirty and could not get it clean as much. I highly recommend this product. Now when I walked downstairs I don't cringe looking at the floor anymore. I will purchase another pen or two just to go over it later on. I'm not embarrassed of my floors anymore." —Lucy

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

    14. A clay mask so you can basically vacuum out your pores. It may also help reduce the frequency of your breakouts and soften your skin.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this as a last hope for cystic acne. I bought raw apple cider vinegar with the mother to mix with the clay powder because I heard that worked best for people experiencing skin problems. My skin has been a rollercoaster for the past five years. But recently, things have gotten really out of control. My self esteem is the lowest it's been. This mask had been such a life saver. I'm not sure words can describe how impressed I am with this healing clay mask. Since my skin has been through hell and I've literally tried everything, it's pretty resilient so I've been using this mask every night for the last four days. It's not nearly as drying as I thought it would be so that hasn't been an issue. But the mask has dried up everything and I have no new breakouts. I was so happy that I cried. If I could give this product a million stars, I would!" —Afton StAmour

    15. A jetted tub cleaner, because who knows when the last time you cleaned it was. (I hate to break it to you, but you're probably chillaxing in dirty water.) This cleanser is made to flush out soap scum, body oils, and those black flakes that gunk up your tub's jets.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "They don't call this Oh Yuk! for no reason. I previously used Jacuzzi's two-part system and this worked sooo much better. I was totally embarrassed not to mention grossed out at how much funk came out. It was NASTY! It definitely cleans your tub. You will probably have to clean the sides of your tub after it's finished because of how much stuff might come out. I swear I clean my tub on a regular basis, but I was amazed at how much better this worked. Highly recommend!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    16. A Bath Bean silicone cushion for anyone who's embarrassingly meticulous about bathtime. Don't you hate it when you're trying to de-stress but you keep sliding (esp if your legs aren't long enough to reach the other end of the tub!) and getting your hair wet? Same! This cushion adheres to the bottom of your tub so your booty stays put and you can achieve serenity.

    Bath Bean

    Bath Bean is a woman-owned small business started by Tanya Vanden Bosch. The cushion is dishwasher-safe so you can deep clean it before it gets moldy.

    Get it from Bath Bean for $80.

    17. A Tushy bidet attachment that'll leave you with the cleanest of cracks. Plus you'll use less TP — a win-win!

    Tushy

    This is the bidet I use and I 100% recommend to my friends, family, and to you, dear reader. Installation was pretty simple; from start to poop it took about 15 minutes. The sensation is truly something if you've never experienced it before, but the cool water will probably feel good once it's summer and my apartment gets nice and steamy. (There's also a version of this attachment that sprays warm water if you're into that!)

    Get it from Tushy for $99 (originally $129; also available in silver).

    18. And a box of wart-removing pads that you apply like bandages if you'd like to be rid of your extra growth. Be gone, appendage!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff works! I’ve never had a wart in my life! At first I thought it was a small callus but as months went by it was getting larger. I started to google and realized I had a plantar wart on my thumb! Eww, embarrassing! So I got the freeze off and thought 'This has to work!' Nope! I tried the freeze off three times and nothing! I than realized the same thing was happening on my other thumb, a small callus but I knew that the wart had spread! Now I was desperate to get rid of them and knew I had waited too long! Bought the invisible strips and it removed my small wart in four days and my big wart in eight!! I couldn’t believe it. I left strips on for two days then pulled back the dead skin with a cuticle clipper and reapplied! My bigger wart was a little tougher to removed and I had irritated my skin trying to cut it out, so I left it alone for few days before reapplying strip and by the second 48-hour treatment, it was gone! I thought my skin would be damaged but it looks like nothing was ever there!" —Audrey N.

    Get 14 pads from Amazon for $6.96+ (available in three styles and multi-packs).

    20. A pack of stain-removing pads so you can clear away those questionable stains that have been there since god knows when.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "WOW were we impressed! On two occasions over the last three months, our sweet dog ate grass outside and then proceeded to vomit in two different locations on relatively new carpet. We cleaned the best we could but two dark round spots remained. We tried the standard carpet sprays to no avail (actually seemed to make them worst). The spots were embarrassing to see, but decided to wait until holiday traffic was over before scheduling full carpet clean. As soon as these arrived, we put them on spots (yes, I know you are supposed to test), stomped on them and set the timer. Lifted the pads in 30 minutes and the whole stains had transferred to the pads, carpet looked clean as can be. Highly recommend for any dog owner with a dog who isn't trained to vomit outside." —Eileen Marie

    Get a pack of 20 from Amazon for $24.99.

    21. A bottle of hard water booster powder because your mugs look like the one on the left (aka cloudy) and you want them to look like the mug on the right (aka nice and shiny).

    Promising review: "I could not get my flatware to come out clean from the dishwasher and I wondered if it was the hard water. I was using up to three soap blocks in each load with only partial improvement. I used this the first time and voilà! Perfectly clean flatware for the first time. I LOVE this!" —Susan A

    Get it from Amazon for $5.97 (or Subscribe & Save for $5.67/month).

    22. A razor kit for anyone who's said, "I'll shave the next time I shower" for the last two months. Obvi you don't have to shave if you don't want to, but if you're approaching the point where you feel like you can braid your leg hair, maybe you should give this razor kit a try.

    The kit
    Athena Club

    It comes with one razor handle, two five-blade cartridges, and a magnetic hook.

    Promising review: "Athena is the best purchase decision I’ve made in a long time!!!! I get a perfect shave every time. The magnetic holder is so convenient and the shaving cream is the absolute best I have ever used!!!" —Wendy M.

    Get it from Athena Club for $9 (available in six colors).

    23. A teeth-whitening pen that'll help you feel less conscious about your smile. It's a heck of a lot quicker (and tastes a lot better) than those whitening strips that have to sit on your teeth for 20 minutes.

    Reviewer before and after showing the pen noticeably whitened their yellow teeth
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have really sensitive teeth and this pen is wonderful. My teeth are not hyper sensitive after using this and the results come fast. There is no way I am going back to those strips and trays. I can tell that I will never use another teeth whitening product again" —Jacqueline Kress

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $15.96.

    24. A tube of antiperspirant hand cream if you suffer from hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) or you're tired of your video game controllers slipping in the middle of your Fortnite session.

    The tube
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I used this product on my 10-year-old son. He sweats A LOT on his hands. He would tell me that he was embarrassed at school and he had problems making friends. My son told me he had never shook a hand outside of mine ever before in his life..... it broke me. As a father, I knew I had to fix this. I set an appointment up with his doctor and got nowhere. The doctor said it's normal and should go away in the coming years. I asked about surgery and they said it would be around $10,000, so I started saving. Couple weeks went by and I came across this product I asked my son if he was OK with trying it and he desperately said yes. We put it on and his hands are completely dry now. When it worked, he started practicing shaking hands and high fives with his brother. It's been two weeks now and it is working AMAZING." —HECTOR LORENZO

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    25. A blackhead remover vacuum to suction up blackheads, whiteheads, grease, and leftover makeup. It comes with four different attachments for all your skincare needs, as well as five suction levels so you can clear up your skin without painful blackhead-removing strips.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I saw this on an article on BuzzFeed. I will just say I am BLOWN AWAY at how great this thing works. I have a lot of congestion on my nose and chin, but NOT ANYMORE thanks to this baby! Suction power is stronger than I thought (learned this after I left my nose all red and purple) so I had to turn it down a notch. I’m so glad I bought this. I was surprised it was inexpensive too. I thought it wouldn’t be good quality/ ineffective. But boy was I wrong! You won’t see me at any expensive facial place any time soon!" —Karlie

    26. A pack of Schick dermaplaning razors so you evict any unwanted stray hairs that have taken up residence on your face — and conquer your PTSD from accidentally shaving off half your eyebrow in middle school thanks to its precision cover.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm a hairy gal. Hormonal problems ruled out by my physician; it's just hereditary. My cheeks, neck, forehead, and chin are covered in a fine ever-growing peach fuzz. If I cease shaving, I shall acquire a boat and thus forth be dubbed blonde beard. My mustache is darker and thicker, something I think a lot of women experience. I have been shaving for a while with a men's razor (Gillette Fusion ProGlide for reference) and shaving cream but it just couldn't give me a close enough shave. ENTER SCHICK SILK TOUCH-UP! Holy wow! I've been dry shaving my entire face and some of my neck with these and no irritation, plus it is the closest shave I have gotten. No pulling or scraping like other 'mini razors.' It's quicker than doing what I call a 'dad shave' in the shower, and I can see what I'm shaving because I'm at my makeup table and there's no shaving cream obstructing my view (I don't want to accidentally hack off the hair by my ears or forehead). Plus, I compared this to other (what I call) mini razors and it's twice the size. So very efficient for doing your whole face, easy for detailing those brows. I love this product and hope that they sell it forever. It works on my peach fuzz, mustache, and brows. If I ever get word that they are going to stop making them, I will hoard them all." —Dr. Eleanor Abernathy

    27. A disposable urinal, because nature calls and you need to be ready to answer it. Just pee into the bag (there's a spill guard), let it seal (the bag will do this on its own), and toss it when you find a trash can. These are also great for people who have trouble leaking or need to pee frequently.

    Promising review: "As embarrassing as it is to admit, I used this in the car on a road trip. I didn't know exactly what to expect, but I was thrilled with the outcome! I pulled over and as a female, I positioned myself over the bag and easy peezy! The crystals absorbed the urine and there was no mess or smell. I have kids and these will work great for them too. I'm really glad I bought these. We travel with our dog EVERYWHERE and we can't leave him in the car to stop for bathroom breaks at rest stops so these have already proven themselves to be perfect for traveling." —Racquelle

    Get six bags from Amazon for $17.99.

    28. A bottle of dentist-approved mouthwash for beating swamp breath, whether it's a caused by a medical issue or because you just drank coffee and orange juice. This one's made sans alcohol so it won't burn when you swish it around your mouth.

    The mouthwash
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Why didn't I find it before? It's very embarrassing to admit, but I had very stinky breath. It did smell like s..t and I tried many products that didn't work. Just follow instructions and 'deep throat' gargle for 30 seconds or so for best results. I can say that my breath has improved by 50%, which is a huge huge difference. Morning breath is not as bad. I can talk to people with confidence and that all it counts. Thank you Amazon!!!" —Shopper5

    30. A pack of dishwasher cleaning tablets if your "clean" dishes are coated in mysterious white crusty bits. It turns out you gotta cleanse the machine that cleans your dishes!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My dishwasher was getting into horrible shape. The top tray would stick and bind no matter how careful I was. The bottom tray was making noises when I moved it. The whole inside of the dishwasher was growing a coating of white mineral deposits. The washing arms were making noises during wash cycles. The dishes were not getting clean. When my order of Affresh arrived, I ran a clean cycle. When I opened the dishwasher at the end, it was clean. Both trays moved easily. The washing arms were clean. The next load of dishes was spotless. Now I run a cleaning cycle the first of every month. This is one product that I will not do without. My dishwasher is five years old, but after using Affresh it looks virtually new." —Mithrandir

    31. A set of kegel weights to not only help with incontinence but also potentially make sex easier, less painful, and more enjoyable. These are especially great for people who've just given birth, though anyone can benefit from strengthening their pelvic floor muscles.

    Reviewer holding one of the weights, which is similar in size to a tampon
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Since starting, my bladder control has significantly improved. I am now able to sneeze or cough without peeing myself. Yes, that's right. I am able to hold my pee longer, which means I can actually make it to the bathroom without dribbling on myself. The best part is that just a few short weeks into the program you will have results you can feel. I think every woman who has ever had kids should try this, out. The overall quality of my life has improved. Ditch your panty liners, stop the embarrassing dribbles, no more mad dashes to the rest room because of a weak bladder. Even my sex life has improved; I have control of those pelvic muscles now. Just remember to wash the weights before and after each use with an antibacterial spray, and allow time to air dry before putting them away. I say air dry because if you wipe them dry with a cloth you run the risk of giving yourself a bladder infection or urinary tract infection, and those are no laughing matter. Easy to use, easy to clean, stores away quickly." —Lady Tauber

    32. A natural shoe deodorizer spray so you can freshen up your house slippers now that they're getting a lot of use. It's made with essential oils and smells like lemon and eucalyptus so you'll probably want to spray it around the rest of your house, too.

    The spray bottle
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product WORKS! You won’t be disappointed. I used to get embarrassed taking off my flats in my office because they smelled so bad, but not anymore! My work flats make my feet sweaty and this spray helps keep the awful odors away at least four to five days (probably longer but I was so excited I just sprayed my shoes again because I liked the smell haha!) The lemon is strong and the eucalyptus I love, so I would purchase again! Although it will likely last a while! I have a little boy who gets sweaty feet also so i’m sure I’ll soon be using this in his shoes also." —Traeannah Chisolm

    33. A collagen-coating hair treatment because it's safe for all hair types and will can help revitalize a dry, damaged, and overprocessed mane overnight.

    Promising review: "My hair used to be really soft, and then I discovered hot tools and hair dye. While my hair looks good I really missed the soft texture. This works so well. There are no instructions on the box but I washed my hair with my usual shampoo, towel dried it, worked about two quarter-sized dollops through my hair, let it sit for 20 minutes and then rinsed out. I went to bed with wet hair which usually results in my hair being kind of tangled and rough looking but I woke up and my hair was as soft and silky as it was before I started coloring it. I'm totally in love with this product, I have long fine hair but this doesn't leave it greasy or weigh it down. I'll definitely buy again." —Ellie

    34. An antifungal tea tree balm to help treat very common but somewhat embarrassing skin conditions like athlete's foot, ringworm, jock itch, and even just dry skin.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I ordered this balm on a whim as a remedy for a skin rash, and was very impressed with its effectiveness! After getting rid of my rash, I decided to try it elsewhere and it worked wonders on dry skin areas like elbows, knees, and feet. I was blown away with how I changed my feet entirely! As a dancer, my feet have always been a war zone: dry skin, callouses, ingrown toenails, and athlete's foot (all frequent problems over the course of many years). I was always embarrassed to wear sandals or any type of shoes that would show off parts of my feet because of all the dry skin, but sometimes it couldn't be avoided. This balm has made my feet the loveliest they have been and now I can choose any type of shoes I want to wear without embarrassment." —Alicia N Engstrom

    Get it from Amazon for $34.97.

    35. A cuticle oil so you can restore your shredded nails. A combination of sweet almond oil, vitamin E, and jojoba softens the cuticle and strengthens your claws so you'll be proud to show them off.

    Promising review: "This product is amazing. I've always had acrylic or dipped nails because my real nails have always been brittle and always break and peel. I decided to give my nails a break and wanted to try and grow them out. I can't even believe the outcome! They are stronger than ever and growing! I really wish I had taken a before pic to show the difference!" —JOE D.

    36. A pack of DressWeights because you're tired of having to hold down your dress and waddle like a penguin until the breeze dies down.

    DressStrong

    DressStrong is a New York City-based small business. Christina, the owner, came up with the idea in 2012 to save us all from unwanted Marilyn Monroe moments.

    Each adhesive should last ~six uses with proper care.

    Promising review: "What an amazing invention! I had my bridesmaids use these for my destination wedding. I got married outside by a very windy gazebo and they worked like a charm. Highly recommend!" —kimberlyo143

    37. A pack of four charcoal air-purifying bags for erasing the funky odor that's emanating from your fridge.

    Abundance Pro Shop / Etsy

    Promising review: "Four bags is more than enough to cover my entire apartment. This is great value for the money. Functionally, my place will smell clean without the use of harmful chemicals. Highly recommended." —theboy712

    Get them from Abundance Pro Shop on Etsy for $14.50.

    38. A pack of gas-neutralizing pads that'll negate your partner's fetid flatulence. Each antimicrobial activated charcoal pad traps foul-smelling gas molecules so toxic toots are a thing of the past.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My significant other has a butt that wants to violently suffocate everyone. This was originally a gag (pun intended) gift but, when used, it actually worked. Most, if not all, of the smell went away with the particularly terrible poots. We joke that we should get some more." —Sunshine

    Get a pack of five from Amazon for $12.99.

    39. A TubShroom if your relaxing showers have turned into you standing in a puddle of water for 15 minutes because the drain is clogged...again. This little guy snags the hair you shed before it can collect in the pipes.

    youtube.com

    Promising review: "I have long hair and recently had a baby. This means the poor tub drain is getting clogged every time we turn around, and we're spending ridiculous amounts of time with that spiky stick thing you shove down there and then pull out over and over. I figured if this even worked to catch half of my hair then it would be worth its salt. Holy moly. When they say it catches every hair they aren't kidding. We clean it off about twice A WEEK! And when they say it's easy to clean, they are right again. A swipe with toilet paper and the hair blob comes right off to be flushed down the toilet. I've already told so many people about this product because I love it so much. Fantastic!!!" —sasamo

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