    1. A deodorant stain remover, because normal rubbing with a towel hasn't ever worked before, and it's not gonna start any time soon! Best invest in a tool that can save all your favorite tanks.

    The sponge is reusable!

    Promising review: "I bought this in hopes to remove deodorant stains that were embedded in my dry clean only dresses. Initially I was nervous using it but once I noticed it leaves no marks I was able to get all of the deodorant off each dress. The best part is you don't have to wet it and it works right away." —Gale Lewandowski

    Get it from Amazon for $9.87.

    2. A powerful stain-removing spray so you don't have to resort to panic whenever you drop something on your shirt.

    This is a universal stain remover, is biodegradable, and contains no peroxide, chlorine, phosphates or parabens.

    Promising review: "I recommend this to everyone! Gets any kind of stain out that I’ve had thus far! I work at a plant where we work outside and it’s gotten grease stains out of bright orange shirts! I just put in another order for more!" —kimberlyr russell

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95.

    3. A nail strengthener from everyone's favorite nail polish brand OPI — get your previously weak nails swol and ready for a nice mani.

    Promising review: "After biting my nails mercilessly since I was a kid, I finally decided to try to quit. I was so sick of being embarrassed by my hands. I've been using this product for a roughly two months and I am very impressed with the progress in such a short time. It's not cheap, but trust me, it's worth the money. One of my nails was chewed nearly down to the cuticle and now it's almost to the end of my nail bed — in a few weeks. My nails have always been so thin and brittle and now I'm fairly sure I could claw someone's eyes out if I were so inclined. Let's hope it doesn't come to that, but I feel better having that option." —Rachel Bouldin

    Get it from Amazon for $17.05 (available in six formulas).

    4. A fruit fly and gnat sticky trap to finally take care of the hundreds of ~buzz~ kills circling your trash can. Yeah, ok, I guess this is just an "after" photo but...come on, it's pretty impressive.

    Promising review: "I love that these are actually a pretty answer to controlling your bug problems. You can stick them down into your plants or flowerpots and sit them around your outside sitting area. The one I put in my little basil plant is completely covered in gnats and flies and other little critters at the moment, and I only put it out yesterday. I can see I'll have to change them often, but better them stuck to these little butterfly catchers than flying around my face!" —daniel cormier

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $10.99.

    5. A leather refinisher and color restorer so grandpa's chair can always stay looking its best.

    The dye is non-toxic and won't rub off on clothing!

    Promising review: "I have always been skeptical about products actually taking care of worn leather. It always seemed like a hoax. Well, it’s not! I was ready to throw out my double recliner leather couch when in one last ditch effort I looked online for a remedy. I bought this product, and it’s the most amazing stuff in the world! I highly highly highly recommend it!" —Cynthia Filip

    Get it from Amazon for $14.61 (available in 29 colors).

    6. A lint remover and fabric defuzzer to revive all of your favorite fabrics you thought were lost forever to The Big Fuzz.

    The de-fuzzer has three interchangeable edges suited to all types of fabric. The reverse side is also a lint remover!

    Promising review: "I have tried a LOT of 'fuzz removers' and ended up throwing them away. Either they pulled the fabric or didn't remove the fuzz. The 'Ultimate Fuzz Remover' does exactly what it is supposed to do. I have used it on fine cashmere sweaters as well as a fuzzed up acrylic wrap. Very happy with both results. The three choices of shavers is the best - you can adjust the 'pull' according to the fabric. I also have a dog, so the hair remover also was needed and works better than the "sticky tape" roller I have. I am very happy with this product!" —GR Gordineer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in five colors).

    7. A driveway and pavement oil remover that'll suck stubborn and unsightly stains right out. Poof! You're a magician now.

    Promising review: "The scene: me with a Hot Glove carrying a drip pan full of au jus. Thumb goes into hot liquid. Pan is dropped and greasy meat juice is all over our patio brick. In freezing temps. I use a putty knife to get some out, but there the stain remains, six months later. Even muriatic acid didn’t cut it. Ordered this. Tried a spot. Let it dry overnight. Swept it. Stain is almost gone. I apply it to the rest of the stain and let it set. But this time it rains and turns it gooey. Fortunately, new power washer and I join forces with Chomp and within a half hour, it’s totally gone. Amazing product. 1000% satisfied." —Teddy Roosevelt

    Get it from Amazon for $12.97.

    8. A suede cleaner to get your favorite shoes back in tip-top kickin' shape.

    Promising review: "This is amazing. I had a stain on my favorite nubuck boots from someone spilling alcohol on them. It had been sitting for over a month and despite my best efforts using an eraser on it, I was worried it wouldn't come off. This cleaner has completely removed the stain and they look good as new! I love it! This will be my only purchase for suede cleaners from now on." —Kaylah Morgan

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    9. A La Roche-Posay gel cleanser to help people with oily skin combat acne. Goodbye, painful breakouts! You won't be missed.

    The cleanser is oil-, paraben-, and alcohol-free.

    Promising review: "I've been using this cleanser for about six months now, and it's great. First of all, my skin is oily and also sensitive, and since using this product nothing bad has happened to my skin. After every use my face feels refreshed and clean. I don't feel it dry or tight after using this product. The scent is also good — just a neutral skincare-type of smell. I recommend it." —A Vega-Valle

    Get it from Amazon for $7.59+ (available in three sizes).

    10. A screen cleaning spray with cleaning cloths so your beloved phone stays clean as a whistle at all times.

    The set comes with the spray and two microfiber cloths.

    Promising review: "This product does a great job. My phone hasn't been this clean since it was new. I was going around my house looking for more things to clean! After cleaning my phone, I did my laptop, my iPad, and my eyeglasses!" —Liz Bradley

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    11. A shaving guide that takes the guesswork out of shaping and shaving the underside of your chin. The world thanks you for taking care of your neck beard.


    Promising review: "This beard shaping tool is better than others I've used. It's high-quality, although it's flexible to shape any face/beard. Once you get it adjusted it to you liking (one or two fingers above Adams apple), just shave below the Flex Shaper and you're done! The best feature to me is that it's hands free. Once you get it set it'll stay put so you don't have to hold it with one hand and shave with the other, unless you like doing it that way. Recommend to anyone that wants a quick and easy way to shape their beard." —Chad Beaver

    Get it from Amazon for $14.87+ (available in two colors).

    12. A callous remover gel to help you ~heal~ your heels. Cracked, calloused, and rough skin is no match for this quick-working solution.

    Promising review: "I have the driest heels and this is the ONLY product that has ever worked. Before I used this my heels had some pretty deep cracks and now they're almost baby soft again. BUT, please follow the directions — I left it on my super dry thick calloused heels for only three minutes and the callouses were literally melting off! Wonderful product! So glad I don't have to go soak my feet in those tubs at the nail salon anymore." —Key2Del

    Get it from Amazon for $9.85.

    13. An argan oil hair mask for reviving your tired, hard-working strands. No need to head to the salon for a treatment when you have this life-giving goop.

    Promising review: "This is the shiniest, softest, and most hydrated my hair has felt in years! I’ve used other deep conditioners that Ive fallen in love with, but really nothing compares to this product. I fried my hair for the last time bleaching my hair, and this has made it feel normal and hydrated again — even better than before I started bleaching and dying!" —Parker

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    14. A holy grail hand cream to soothe and heal your hands. Winter dryness is approaching — time to stock up.

    Promising review: "I've developed eczema on my hands over the last few years, and my fingers get terribly, painfully cracked all year long, and especially in the colder months. My fingers and knuckles will be covered in cracks. This is THE only thing that gives me any relief. It stings a good bit when you put it over open sores (which if you're like me is inevitable), and feels a little weird, but the result is worth the pain. You'll notice a difference after just a couple of uses. Promise. It helps cracked heels, too." —Kathleen Dunlop

    Get it from Amazon for $6.49.

    15. A bottle of pet earwax cleaner — we don't deserve dogs, and dogs don't deserve for their perfect ears to be clogged and dirty.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my cat because he had ear mites when I got him and when they cleared up, his ears were left with a bunch of nasty wax and I couldn't get all of it out in fear of pushing it farther down. This stuff brought EVERYTHING up! I LOVE it and HIGHLY recommend for anyone with an animal with dirty ears! My cat has stopped scratching at his ears finally because they are nice and clean!" —Tricia S.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    16. A bottle of rosehip oil so you can even out your skin tone if you've had areas that have been bothering you for a while. Take action!

    Promising review: "After having my baby I suffered from a horrible bout of acne and then scars! I went from perfect skin to disaster and my self-esteem was on the line. I even looked into the hundred dollar face peels from the dermatologist! I found an article on rosehip oil randomly and gave it a try. Holy grail. Top left is during when the scars were pretty dark and bottom right is now. I use to pile on the make up, not anymore. This is about a four month difference. The bottle lasts forever, and I'm forever a customer." —Audrey

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    17. A cooktop and glass cleaner reviewers say works remarkably well removing limescale from showers. The more you know!

    This cleaner is safe to use in the kitchen but reviewers sure love it for their shower doors!

    Promising review: "I'd give this product 10 stars if I could. Absolutely the best glass shower door cleaner on the planet! Eliminates — not reduces — lime scale for sparkling, looks-like-brand-new glass shower doors. And unless it's really bad, you don't even need to scrub that hard. We have very hard water, and even if you're religious with the squeegee (and our guests aren't), lime scale builds up and it looks dirty, dingy no matter how hard you scrub. This is a miracle cleaner. I finished up with regular glass cleaner and our little glassed-in corner shower in the guest bath looks like it was just installed — spotless!" —SuzieQ

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $11.29.

    18. A wood polish and conditioner with beeswax and orange oil so you can restore and rehydrate your old furniture with just a few swipes.

    Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs that jumped up and scratched places. We also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were. Several other areas were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magical eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let is sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand new. I'm buying a couple more so we can finish our cabinets and wood paneling. We're so glad we found this product." —Kris

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48.

    19. A stainless steel cleaner that ~sticks~ it to sticky handprints and other kitchen goop that inevitably ends up plastered to the fridge.

    Promising review: "I tried to clean all the stainless steel things in our kitchen with a bunch of different cleaners. Wow is all I can say. Sprayed this stuff on and with very little effort they looked like brand new. This stuff really works." —Dan B

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    20. A small steamer so you can look like a real, live, put-together person. Nothing says "I'm fine," like a nice, wrinkle-free shirt.

    Promising review: "Holy cow this thing is awesome! I’ve been wanting a steamer because I hate dragging out the ironing board and doing a sub-par job of a task I already dislike. Anyway, got this bad boy in the mail earlier and tested it out. Super easy to assemble and get to work. Within two minutes, my husband’s wrinkled T-shirt (it had been sitting in the dryer for a couple days. Oops) was wrinkle-free. Hardly any effort on my part. Just heat it up, swipe it over the garment a few times and BAM you’re done. Would recommend to literally everyone I know, regardless if they want my opinion or not." —K. Langham

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95.

    21. Tend Skin Solution for showing ingrown hairs and razor bumps who's boss. Those suckers hurt and Tend shows no mercy.

    Promising review: "I have sensitive skin and this has helped tremendously! I’m a woman who unfortunately started shaving my chin 20 years ago to get rid of peach fuzz. I’ve had stubble ever since and have to shave everyday. I get rashes on my chin due to shaving. My skin is now less sensitive and my rash is almost gone!" —Angela

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99.

    22. A pet hair vacuum so you can *finally* start inviting friends over again after you adopted a cat who swiftly claimed the sofa, chair, and rugs as their own by shedding all over.

    The hand vac has a 16-foot power cord and comes with two nozzles for cleaning upholstery, carpeting, and the inside of your car.

    Promising review: "Couldn’t believe you can get rid of pet hair this easily! Works magic. We have a Labrador that sheds a lot. The before and after of our car seat cover shows how effective it is. This vacuum has a cord so you won’t run out of charge. So happy with our purchase." —Kartikey

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99.

    23. A makeup brush shampoo, because this is the month you finally start cleaning your makeup brushes. I feel it. I believe in you.

    Promising review: "This cleanser is great! It fully removes all makeup from the brushes without leaving them feeling beat up (I'm not the most gentle when it comes to cleaning brushes). I use a thick foundation that soaks heavily into the bristles, but this removed it all. At first I thought it was a bit thin, but after using it, a little bit goes a long way. It has a nice lather, but very nicely and easily rinses out." —Kryssy

    Get it from Amazon for $4.79.

    24. A John Frieda Hot Air Brush so you can be your own dang before-and-after photo. The hot air brush seriously works so hard to give you an amazing blowout, I would personally like to nominate it for several awards.

    Ugh, I love the hot air bush. I have a short bob that is très chic if I do say so myself, but *has* to be styled every day. The brush majorly cuts the time I have to spend on my hair and has rendered my annoying round brush/hairdryer system useless, thank goodness. If you blowout your hair ummmm ever, I 100% recommend this.

    Promising review: "Let's face it. It's near impossible to get a salon blowout look at home. Your arms get tired, and trying to manage a brush and blowdryer is a feat in and of itself. This brush is not just good, it's great! I love this brush! I actually like the way my hair turns out with this styler better than what I get at the salon — seriously. I love my hairdresser and she does a great job, but I have actually gotten more compliments on my hair when I do it myself with this tool. I'll probably get two more to give to my daughters as well, that's how much I love it. This is great and you can't beat the price!" —debbie

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in two sizes).

    Thanks for letting me slide in here and show you some great before-and-after photos! It is my one purpose on Earth.
