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 beeswax wood polisher so you can revive your dinged and dented cabinets and table quick as a flash. Plus, this method is a heck of a lot cheaper than actually replacing the wood, and using this polish on a regular basis can actually help keep the wood hydrated so it lasts longer.

    Promising review: "Works as incredibly as the reviews said! Super fast, no strong smelly chemicals, amazing results!" —Michelle Behnken

    Get it from Amazon for $12.90.

    2. A nail grinder if you want your wood floors and furniture to remain free of scratch marks. It'll trim your pup's claws to an acceptable length so they don't leave behind gouges in your beautiful oak flooring. Plus it's super quiet and smooth, which is ideal for dogs who get spooked by regular nail clippers.

    Promising review: "Our dog HATES getting her nails done, and I got sick of paying someone every few weeks to do them. We’ve tried clippers and other file systems, but have had very limited success. This has already paid for itself by avoiding three trips to the doggy salon now. It’s easy to set up, charges quickly, is easy to hold, and works fast. Other trimmers have taken forever to make almost no noticeable difference in her nails, but this is fast and strong enough to allow me to hit each nail for just a few seconds and be done. We are both extremely grateful!" —Elisa Spicer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    3. A teeth-whitening pen that'll be a heck of a lot quicker (and taste a lot better) than those whitening strips that have to sit on your teeth for 20 minutes. Just let it sit for a minute and you're good to go. You can use each pen ~20 times and should expect your teeth to lighten four to eight shades.

    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 $19.99.

    4. An eyebrow tint because it lasts up to three days...which means three full days of not having to fill in your brows. Oh! And it means you won't suffer through a lifetime of poorly tattooed brows. A win-win!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Omg real results real fast!!! Just 15 minutes later I have tinted eyebrows!! Wow!!" —Jamie A.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97+ (available in three shades).

    5. A pack of bottle-cleaning tablets for anyone whose devotion to caffeine doesn't outweigh their laziness. It's OK — these bad boys will do all the heavy lifting for you so your beloved thermos is crystal clean quicker than it took you to make those stains.

    Promising review: "This stuff is AMAZING!!!!!! It is completely worth the price. You will be AMAZED at how fast it works and how efficiently too. I admit, I was a little skeptical, even with other users posting pictures. For me, it was a try it to believe it. I did and I totally do. It works so well that it has made one of my tea tumblers look better than when I bought it. I would highly recommend this product!" —T. V. Henson

    Get 12 tablets from Amazon for $8.

    6. A jewelry-cleaning pen to have your jewels sparkling in literal seconds instead of sitting at the table gently scrubbing...and scrubbing...and scrubbing with a toothbrush and hoping you're getting all the nooks and crannies.

    Check out my colleague's Diamond Dazzle Stik review to get more deets.

    Promising review: "I used to drop my rings in a bit of watered down Windex, let them soak, then scrub with a soft toothbrush, rinse, and dry. That process took about 15 minutes, and even then my rings, and particularly the stones, were not flawless looking afterwards. I thought it did the job. ENTER DIAMOND DAZZLE STICK! I bought this after reading a BuzzFeed list and now I literally I sound like an infomercial talking about this thing. It’s incredible. First you dispense a little product, and you don’t even have to take your ring off!!! Then you scrub for approximately three seconds, rinse, and BAM!!!! Holy sparkles, Batman. My precious stones have never looked better. Even rings that looked pretty good before, I couldn’t believe how sparkly they were after this. Consider me a lifetime customer." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    7. A 7-in-1 Instant Pot so you can dump all your ingredients in a pot, press a few buttons, and dig into a delicious meal just 30 minutes later.

    9. A pack of foaming garbage disposal cleaners that'll deodorize your sink ASAP, because if you have to smell last week's rotting veggie peels for one more minute you just might scream.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This product really works! We were dealing with a foul stench coming from our disposal for some time. We tried boiling water, vinegar, etc. This stuff sniffed out the smell real quick and deodorized it as well." —James Tiberius Kirk

    Get a pack (good for four uses) from Amazon for $6.05.

    10. A pack of stain-removing pads because they'll rapidly lift pee, poop, vomit, and even wine from your carpet — all you have to do is give them a few stomps.

    amazon.com

    These are perfect for erasing small messes in a matter of minutes. If you have more stubborn stains, you may need to let the pad sit.

    Promising review: "Perfect for quick cleanup from pets and kids spilling stuff. Bissell nailed it with this cleaning pad! Will definitely buy again!" —Theresa Render

    Get a pack of 20 from Amazon for $24.99.

    11. Or a portable Bissell SpotBot, because who wants to spend hours on their hands and knees scrubbing cat vomit from the carpet with a brush? The answer: no one. Good thing this'll clean up your messes in minutes.

    amazon.com

    This portable carpet cleaner will spray, brush, and suction up any stain, no adult supervision needed. It also comes with a hose and tool attachment if you'd prefer a more hands-on cleaning session.

    Promising review: "I have two cats (ages 16 and 8), one dog, a 5-year-old kid, and several other dogs on occasion (I pet sit and board dogs). I have needed to rent a carpet cleaner at least twice a year since I can remember. No longer! The SpotBot has revolutionized cleaning in our household. It is ridiculously easy and fast! The best part is that I barely have to touch anything gross anymore. I always pick up the larger chunks first, but I let the SpotBot do the rest and all I have to do is follow-it up with a good dump and rinse. A single spot takes less than five minutes to clean depending on the setting used and your competency (again, super easy to set up and use). I've had good experience on the stairs and the upholstery using the wand as well." —Rainbow Chicken

    Get it from Amazon for $149.

    12. A bottle of hard water booster powder to make your mugs that currently look like the one on the left (aka cloudy) look like the mug on the right (aka nice and shiny) after just one trip through the dishwasher.

    amazon.com

    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 and Save for $5.67/month).

    13. Octocurl, a no-heat hair curler so — bam! — you can achieve beautiful loose curls, spirals, twist outs, or beachy waves overnight. Just set your hair, go to sleep, and wake up to results!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product was very easy to use and my hair actually curled! My hair is naturally very straight and fine, and I am allergic to most hair product so I try and avoid using any. I ran a wet hair brush through my hair to dampen, rolled each hair strand around two of the vertical strips, rolled up, and used the provided hair ties to tie each strand up. The next morning I ran my fingers through my hair and I was done! It is fast, easy and the final result exceeded my expectations." —Verona B.

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in three styles).

    14. An earwax removal kit if you're tired of jamming your fingers in your ears to no avail. Good thing you don't need your ears to read the 7,400+ five-star reviews this product has garnered.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "After messing around with a cotton swab in my left ear (never do this), I managed to fully block all hearing in it. I ran around like a headless chicken for about 24 hours because the pressure in the ear was so intense. One treatment of Debrox and the blockage immediately subsided. Trick is to let it sit in the ear for at least five minutes. Drain the ear, wait another five minutes, then irrigate with the bulb and warm water, never cold. Seldom does a remedy work as advertised; this one does!" —Chazmax1

    Get it from Amazon for $5.60.

    15. A box of cleaning K-Cups that'll get rid of residue in your machine and prevent flavors from transferring in just one cycle. Or have fun descaling it multiple times. Your choice!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Just pop it in and run about one reservoir of water through the system. It is blue but unclogs and does a great job of cleaning. When I used the white vinegar method I'd have to rinse it quite a few times to get rid of the vinegar taste in the water. I definitely recommend this to others. I believe it works in all systems that use the K-Cup." —Brandi

    Get a box of five pods from Amazon for $7.99.

    16. An eco-friendly hard water stain-remover because it'll help you wipe away soap scum and residue in your shower in half the time it normally takes you to clean.

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

    Promising review: "We tried everything to get rid of hard water stains and nothing worked. We were getting our house ready to sell and our tub and sink were a mess. We tried this product and it worked immediately, restoring everything to like new. It was fast and really worked! We even used it to clean our glass stove top. It was amazing how clean it got things. I have a bad back and have to be careful about scrubbing things and it takes no effort to use. We use it in our new house and love it!" —Bradley

    Get it from Amazon for $22.97.

    17. A pumice cleaning stone for powering through tough rust, lime, and calcium streaks that have retired many a toilet scrubbing brush. Give your tired arms a break and let this little guy rub 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.

    18. A broom for pet hair to loosen the fur trapped in your carpet effectively without having to spend time setting up your vacuum. The rubber head works as a magnet to attract stray hairs. There's also a built-in squeegee for wiping up liquids or for cleaning glass. Plus, the handle extends so it can reach practically any mess.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have two Great Pyrenees and they shed a ton. Before I found this, I had to vacuum/sweep the whole house 2+ times per day just to keep the hair at bay. This thing is great because it eliminates the need for a twice-daily vacuum of the rugs and it really gets the dog hair off the floor fast. It's a must have if you have shedding doggos." —Emily Bragg

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98.

    Check out my coworker's Evrilholder FURemover broom review for more satisfying photos of the hair it removed from her carpet.

    19. A power scrubber so you can actually be impressed for once. It's basically an electric toothbrush, but for cleaning tile grout and hard-to-reach nooks and crannies. This is gonna save you so much time and effort.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is so much easier than using the toothbrush when trying to really scrub grout or around the sink, etc. This little thing is pretty powerful; I was really surprised at how fast it rotates! This is one of the most helpful cleaning tools I have ever owned. A real time- and energy-saver!" —Sissy39

    Get it from Amazon for $19.98.

    20. A jetted tub cleaner if you need a relaxing bath and you need it now. This cleanser will quickly flush out soap scum and body oils that are gunking up your tub's jets.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Works better than anything else we have tried on our six-foot jetted hot tub. We have well water with lots of minerals. Oh Yuk gets the crud out fast and rinses easy. Been using it for three years and nothing else comes close." —Linda

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    21. A plant-based stainless-steel cleaner and polish that'll help you conquer the very time-consuming task of wiping down all the appliances in your kitchen. Reviewers say it helps keep your surfaces smudge free for longer, meaning less cleaning for you!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "After reading the newspaper, I desperately need just one dang thing I can fix in this world! But seriously, it's the best stainless cleaner I've ever used. It's quick, smells great and the finish is perfect. It resists finger prints (and paw prints) for days. It was also a great idea they had to include the microfiber cleaning cloth, as it does an excellent job as well. I probably wouldn't have thought of that. I plan to give these as gifts. Pretty funny!" —Designer Mom

    Get a bottle on Amazon for $16.95.

    22. A pack of dishwasher cleaning tablets because they clean as your machine runs — no need to spend your precious free time cleaning it by hand.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Convenient, easy, quick way to keep the dishwasher fresh and working at peak." —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of six tablets from Amazon for $5.99.

    23. A variety pack of A Dozen Cousins ready-to-eat seasoned beans for those nights when you need a quick, easy meal. Just pop them in the microwave, and they're ready in 60 seconds. Or, use them to zhuzh up leftovers so you can finally clear some fridge space.

    Amazon

    A Dozen Cousins is a Black-owned business founded by Ibraheem Basir and inspired by his the Creole, Caribbean, and Latin American flavors he ate growing up.

    Promising review: "Canned beans from my local supermarket are always a disappointment so I stopped getting them. I don't have time to cook beans myself but A Dozen Cousins beans are fresh and taste terrific. I am trying to eat healthier and these are a great way to do that. I've been trying to avoid packaged, processed foods but the natural ingredients make these different. I can feel good about eating them. The beans are whole and not mashed-up like in cans. All of the varieties are seasoned well and versatile. I've had them on their own, in salads and in wrap sandwiches. I'm really happy to have found these and hope they continue to add new flavors and products. Do yourself a favor and order some. You won't regret it." —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $24.99.

    24. A microwave pasta cooker to save the day when you want soft, cheesy, noodly carbs but don't want the hassle of boiling water, cleaning a giant pot, and struggling to strain your noods without spilling hot water everywhere.

    Amazon, youtube.com

    Read our Fasta Pasta Microwave Cooker review (#2 on the list)!

    Promising review: "I love pasta but as a single girl it has always been such a hassle with the big pot of boiling water and then the scrubbing just for one person. This little kitchen tool is a dream to use and clean. No more big pots of water!! No more spilled hot water and now more room in my cupboards. Big pots replaced with this one tiny tool. I've given one to all my single friends for the holidays." —AlamedaHardwear

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    25. A gel nail polish kit so you can perfect your at-home manicure and save money in the long run. It takes less than two minutes to cure your nails, and reviewers say the color stays chip-free for weeks.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Each kit comes with 20 mini gel polishes, a base coat, a matte top coat, and a glossy top coat.

    Promising review: "I love this product. Very easy and fast to get a nice looking manicure. Mine last a couple weeks, I use my hands a lot at work and I have to wash my hands quite a bit since I’m in the medical field and they still hold up well. They can chip but it’s an easy fix. Definitely recommend if you are on a budget and can’t afford getting your nails done professionally every two weeks." —Clifford

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99 (available in six shades).

    26. A drill brush kit with three different heads if you gave up on baths a long time ago because getting your tub sparkly clean didn't feel possible. No more furiously scrubbing your tub; instead, just attach the brush head and flip the switch on your drill. Why work harder when you could work smarter?

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I let my tub get extra dirty on purpose because I knew this brush set was coming. In five minutes my tub was sparkling clean. This item is no joke. The flat brushes are awesome for big surfaces and the cone brush hits the hard to reach corners. I liked them so much I bought a set for my mom." —Jason B.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in soft, medium, stiff, and ultra stiff bristles).

    27. A purring cat toy if your kitty is suffering from anxiety. This purple guy has a built-in purring mechanism so your feline can enjoy the sensation of curling up to another purring "cat." It also plays calming, comforting sounds.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Works like a charm! I recently found myself a cat mama of an abandoned week-old kitten. I bought this knowing she needed just something to cuddle up to in her bed. Turns out it basically hypnotizes her to sleep. She crawls to it, kneads it and eventually her meows turn to silence. I wish the purring lasted longer but for $10 it is a lifesaver. She's pooped on it a couple of times so I've had to throw it in the washer and dryer minus the battery pack. It's held up great." —S Leytem

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    28. An interactive cat toy that'll quickly replace the bin full of other playthings you've bought your kitty over the years...and that they now won't even look at.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a whole room filled with cat toys that my cat is not interested in. It's funny how the least expensive cat toy I have makes him go crazy. He plays with this until he's panting like a dog and I have never seen him jump so high. I'm certain this toy will help him lose his belly. He loves it! I highly recommend it!" —Kwoo

    Get it from Amazon for $2.49.

    29. A manual food chopper because it can slice and dice fruits, veggies, herbs, boneless meats, and ice with ease *and* without taking up a lot of space on your counters or hurting your ears with its shrieking mechanical whirring.

    Reviewer before and after photos showing roughly chopped veggies finely minced by the chopper
    amazon.com

    It's also dishwasher-safe (top rack only!) so cleanup is easy peasy.

    Promising review: "This magic little gizmo does exactly what the product info says it will do. It is fast, easy, safe and super easy to clean up. Dice a whole onion in literally seven seconds. Just rinse with soap and warm water. Done. I've diced onions of all sorts, cucumbers, bell peppers, carrots, celery, firm tomatoes, olives, potatoes, hard boiled eggs, and even bread for bread crumbs. You won't regret this purchase. First time a family member sees you using it, he/she will probably double over laughing, as it is quite an unusual looking thing." —Ava

    Get it from Amazon for $15.30 (available in two colors).

    30. An eyeliner stamp if even one minute is approximately 30 seconds too long to spend applying liner. With this, just stamp, swipe, and go!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product is so awesome! I got it because I was so tired of drawing my winged eyeliner and it almost always never being the same on both sides. With this it makes it super easy and fast to get that winged eye liner. I use this all the time and it lasts throughout the day. It is waterproof but not so much so that it’s impossible to get off, which is nice. I definitely recommend this if you just want to do your makeup fast." —NH
