    1. An ink remover for disappearing unwanted scrawls and stains. Evan? Where did you go?! Has anyone seen Evan?!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Amodex took ink out of my expensive scrubs. A pen leaked in my pocket and made a thick glob of ink stain on the scrub jacket and a little on the pants. After using the Amodex and washing in cold water, there is no evidence of a stain and the fabric looks exactly how it looked before the stain. There was no damage or discoloration of the fabric. Thank you, Amodex. This product just saved me the $75 that it would have cost to replace the scrubs." —Michelle hammer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.49.

    2. An Echo Dot that can set alarms, make shopping lists, play music, dim the lights, and tell you about the weather, but like...how? Maybe I don't understand technology, but the far more likely answer is there's something ~MORE~ at play.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have to say, I am quite impressed with my Echo Dot. Alexa can make or answer phone calls, play soothing sounds at night for me, and even wakes me up in the morning with a pleasant-sounding alarm. If I want her to play a song for me, then I just say 'Alexa, play Elvis Presley, "Don't Be Cruel"' and like magic it starts to play. I'm just a beginner at this, but I am finding out that I can do many many things with the Alexa app. Do yourself a favor and buy it. Best money I've ever spent." —Russ Rowe

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99 (available in three colors).

    3. A three-piece produce storage container set to keep all of your berries and greens as fresh as when they left the ground. The Fountain of Youth has been in these containers all along.

    Natalie Brown / Via BuzzFeed

    The set includes one 6.3 cup container, and two 17.3 cup containers with lids, which are BPA-free, and dishwasher-safe. They feature vents to regulate the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide, keeping your produce fresh as can be!

    Promising review: "I bought my fruit on Friday and ordered this immediately because I’m so sick of throwing my fruit away if I don’t eat it in a few days. It’s been a WEEK now and my strawberries, pineapple, and blueberries, (all in this one big container), are STILL FRESH! I’m going to start buying more fresh fruit now that I know it won’t be wasted and thrown away in a few days. Highly recommend this product if you’re like me and can’t eat a whole pineapple, strawberries, and other fruit fast!" —Sarah

    Get the three-piece set from Amazon for $27.52.

    4. An aerogarden for turning your previously plant-killing thumb into a green one. This device will keep herbs alive and well in your own home, with VERY little effort required from you.

    Macy's

    The aerograden features LED grow lights as well as a system to remind you when to add water and plant food, ensuring your plants have everything they need to thrive!

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful collection, exclusively Macy's for $89.99 (originally $189.99, available in two colors).

    5. A makeup brush shampoo so you can turn into the kind of person who actually cleans their brushes. You're an Adulting Wizard now.

    amazon.com

    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 $7.99.

    6. A John Frieda Hot Air Brush to live as if you're your own Bizarro World twin who's exactly the same as you in every way except with an incredible and simple blowout.

    amazon.com

    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 $39.99+ (available in two sizes).

    7. An automatic pan stirrer that actually tends to your cooking for you. Is Mary Poppins around? This seems like classic Mary.

    Uncommon Goods

    The arm spins in the pan, disrupting whatever's in it and effectively stirring for you.

    Promising review: "My husband loves to cook. We have two very small children, so while his meals are mostly yummy, they are also sometimes burnt. This was perfect for him. He's able to turn it on, run into the next room save the day with a plastic bag and a washcloth for whatever blowout-esque mess I'm dealing with, forget he's cooking, run back into the kitchen frantically when he remembers, and arrive only to find the meal practically cooking itself. Best. Gift. Ever." —Jake the ChefturnedDaddy

    Get it from UncommonGoods for $25.

    8. A pack of Bottle Bright tablets so you can finally get rid of all the black slimy goop at the bottom of your forgotten tumblers. All is not lost! In fact, there's been an easy solution all along!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. Bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER HydroFlask to replace it. Now eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING." —Amazon Customer

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $8.

    9. A bottle of wrinkle releaser spray that is some Hogwarts-level liquid. You think Ron and Harry ever owned an iron? Nope, they just owned this spray.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "As a college student with a full course load, I'm in and out of my room all the time. This helps me keep my clothes wrinkle-free without having to waste time ironing them. It's also great as it leaves a VERY nice smell on my clothes." —Seth

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $13.26 (available in two scents).

    10. A watermark-removing cloth for getting rid of those stubborn rings with mere swipes. Have fun putting down a wet glass and vanishing it over and over — your new, most insufferable magic trick.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This removed the most stubborn watermark on earth! My desk had three very obvious rings from where hot mugs had been left unattended, and despite trying everything that was recommended online, nothing worked to reduce their appearance. This cloth must have some miracle oil in it because it removed the rings when nothing else would, and they haven't come back. Be sure to really rub the cloth over the water mark (it may take some time, but it's worth it!), and save the plastic bag that it comes in just in case you need it again." —Trini

    Get it from Amazon for $4.39.

    11. A fabric shaver so you don't have to bid adieu to your beloved couch before its time. Have any pilled fabric Benjamin Button-ing in an instant.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Okay, I don’t normally rave about things like this. I bought this on a whim in a last attempt to save my favorite duvet cover. The pills had gotten to the point where it was seriously uncomfortable to sleep with them getting all up in my leg space. I thought I was going to have to get a new duvet cover entirely. Along came this lil' baby. Not only is my duvet cover basically brand new, but I have found a new hobby. I’m depilling everything. Sweatshirts, leggings, blankets, socks, anything that looks like it needs some love. It does the job quickly and leaves everything looking fresh. Hi, I’m obsessed. I can’t stop. I should send this back. I’ve started asking if my neighbors need anything depilled. I’m going to buy one of these for everyone in my life. Everyone needs to own this. Take it away from me." —Sydney Jensen

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    12. A red wine stain remover for reversing one of the greatest mistakes one can make — spilling the contents of your bubbling cauldron (or wine glass) all over the place.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "When you have anything white in your house and you have a love for red wine THIS PRODUCT IS A MUST! We had a dinner party of about 15 people in our house so I bought five bottles just in case. Someone spilled red wine on our brand new white couch. I was so mad, but I used this stuff and it was GONE. It didn't just take most of the red wine out — the red wine was GONE! No trace of it at all! I will buy more!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.94.

    13. A pack of silver polish wipes to easily restore your tarnished jewelry and silverware to their original state. You may be polishing silver, but that's a gold metal trick.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "It is very uncommon for me to write a review but this product is amazing. My family's silverware had not been polished in the 15 years since I married my husband. The only time I ever polished anything before it was messy and smelly and took forever. Therefore I didn't have any interest in polishing something that we weren't using. I decided to try these wipes because the price was reasonable. They are easy to use and do a wonderful job! The silverware looks silver! I used four wipes to polish a service of eight, and it took me about 20 minutes. I highly recommend this product!" —Kehrli

    Get a 20-pack from Amazon for $8.28.

    14. A rapid drink chiller for making any non-carbonated beverage ice-cold in less than 60 seconds. From piping hot coffee to whiskey to wine, this amazing device twists Father Time's arm in your favor, getting you a cool drink ASAP.

    The Grommet

    Just fill it with water and pop it into the freezer for 12 hours before using. It has a 12.5 oz. capacity and is dishwasher safe!

    Get it from The Grommet for $29.95 or Amazon for $24.95.

    15. A grout pen that is a literal *magic* marker for all of your grody tile.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised by how far these went. I did the entire floor of my large master bathroom plus a little of the shower with one pen. It is pretty forgiving, and you have quite a bit of working time before it dries completely. This was not a quick task, but it went faster than I thought it would. I was worried the white would look too bright, but it just makes everything look so much cleaner. I'm very happy with this product!" —Jenelle

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

    16. A pet hair vacuum because, although you love them, you haven't known peace since you got a pet that started shedding everywhere. This vacuum lifts the curse.

    amazon.com

    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: "Holy crap! Are you skeptical when it comes to buying stuff online? ME TOO! But I have four cats and a golden retriever, so I was getting desperate! A picture is worth a thousand words — check mine out! The 'before' picture was taken of my dog's bed AFTER it went through the washer and dryer. Look at all of that left behind hair! The 'after' picture was taken after only THREE MINUTES spent vacuuming her bed. I. Am. SOLD!" —Luka Chan

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99 (available in two colors).

    17. A cleanser and polishing powder. Nope, this isn't a camera illusion. Just a before and after worthy of framing.

    amazon.com

    The cleanser is non-abrasive, bleach-free, and effective on most surfaces in the kitchen, bathroom, and outdoors.

    Promising review: "As you can see in the photo, it’s safe to say this stuff works. I left it on for a little while, and when I came back, this was the result of less than two minutes of scrubbing!" —Donette

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $7.99.

    Check out "You Can Use This All-Purpose Cleanser To Basically Clean Your Entire House" for more info!

    18. A jewelry cleaning pen that's basically a magic wand exclusively made for getting you diamonds sparkling again. *DING!*

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Don't get me wrong — my wedding ring was gorgeous before. It did sparkle and still made me smile every day. However...after using this Diamond Dazzle Stik...*oh my goodness*! After one use my ring is absolutely breathtaking! I knew my ring got dirty now and then, simply from sweating and being outside in the elements. However, I never realized just how much dinge and schmutz marred my diamond until I cleaned it. It literally took my breath away with its fiery, dazzling brilliance!" —liltreeclimber

    Get it from Amazon for $7.45.

    19. A wood polish and conditioner with beeswax and orange oil to hide dings and scratches, add some healthy natural luster to your dull antiques, and overall give all the wood items you own new life! Bringing things back to life — the most difficult trick of all.

    amazon.com

    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 $8.47.

    20. Tend Skin Solution for showing ingrown hairs and razor bumps who's boss. Those suckers have never stood down until now, and frankly I suspect Tend is actually a potion.

    amazon.com

    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 $23.99+ (available in two sizes).

    21. An eyeshadow primer so the look you spent so long on this morning can stay in ~prime~ condition all the live long day. The ability to freeze time for under $15? Worth it.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "So let me start by saying I have used nearly every eyeshadow primer available. From high-end to low — Mac, Lorac, Urban Decay...they don't hold a candle to Thank Me Later. I have very oily skin. I use this primer and my shadow lasts a full eight hours or more. I could get maybe five or six out of the other brands, if I'm lucky. I got this as a sample in my Ipsy bag, and I had to buy the full-size product straight away! I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Thank you Elizabeth Mott for finally making a primer that lasts! I love this stuff!" —Melissa Mae

    Get it from Amazon for $13.48.

    22. A Makeup Eraser towel to make every drop of your makeup *poof* disappear at the end of the night. As long as I live in a world where taking off a full face is as easy as using water and a towel, I also believe in fairies.

    Taylor Miller

    Promising review: "As someone who has suffered from skin sensitivity for most of my adult life, I have continued to struggle finding something that removes my makeup with ease while also protecting my skin. This eraser not only removes all of my makeup without irritation, it also removes waterproof mascara without any issue! Cleaning is a breeze, as I simply throw it in the wash or hand wash with baby shampoo." —Brittany Saxon

    Get it from Amazon for $20.

    23. A Clorox toilet cleaning wand kit. Wave that baby and Bibbidi Bobbiti Poo, your bowl's like new!

    amazon.com

    The kit comes with one wand, a caddy, and six disposable scrubber refills.

    Promising review: "Do you ever look at your toilet brush in disgust and resentment? How is a dirty used-up brush still sitting in your throne room? You clean your bathroom, but then you put that sucker down in its place and it's just mocking you. It's never truly immaculate. Never knowing true cleanliness. Fear no more. Now you can shine your porcelain throne and not have to worry about a used up toilet brush mocking your clean, sparkling bathroom. Gone are the days of breathing in dirty poop particles from the reusable potty-cleaning-brush-thingy. Clorox Toilet Wand: the answer to your prayers if you want an easy, deep clean and to toss away the brush after you're done. Fast, cheap, and easy. Just how we like to clean." —Juliana

    Get it from Amazon for $8.88.

    24. An essential oil migraine relief stick to fend off evil headaches. If you've ever struggled with consistent migraines, you know that getting one to go away is nothing short of a phenomenon. Enter this beauty.

    Yi Yang / Via BuzzFeed, Katy Herman / Via BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "OMG, finally something that works! I've had tension and migraine headaches for around 20 years. I've tried everything: over-the-counter medication, prescription medication, pain injections, going to the chiropractor, etc. This topical oil has given me relief for nearly six weeks now. I've only had two or three headaches in that time and they were mild. I've already ordered more so I have some in my car and at home, and I bought some for two of my friends who suffer from chronic migraines. I would recommend this product to anyone with migraines — it's phenomenal." —Mary D.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    Hear more about one BuzzFeed writer's love of the migraine stick in "Attention, Headache Sufferers: This Essential Oil Stick Will Change Your Damn Life."

    25. A rust stain-removing gel that'll return any stubborn, rusted surface in your home to its former glory. *Cher voice* "If i could turn back tiiiime!"

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I cannot say enough great things about this product. We just purchased a home that has a well with very high iron content in the water. I tried everything to remove the stains from our three toilets but nothing worked. I found this product online and immediately went to Amazon. The results blew me away. I didn't have to scrub at all. I let it sit in the tank for several hours and the results floored me!" —Toni Huitt

    Get it from Amazon for $12.97.

    26. An electric pressure washer I dare you to try to use without yelling "Abracadabra!" even once. Spoiler alert: it's impossible.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    You can use this pressure washer on outdoor cushions, wood decks, house siding, and so many other places. You can even fill it with detergent to wash your car!

    Promising review: "I love this washer. It competes with my 2200 PSI gas-powered pressure washer, which in fact I sold to keep this. But doesn't have the noisy gas engine or the heavy weight. Easy to move around lightweight and has great power. Very quiet. I love all the attachments and the different stream types. The soap dispenser works well. I'm cleaning everything, my deck, my house, the garage doors, the concrete slab. It takes off all the dirt and mold from the old concrete stairs and sidewalk." —Tim S.

    Get it from Amazon for $149 (originally $199.99).

    27. A set of three scrubbing drill brush attachments to make (dirty) opaque glass transparent again. Ooooo, ahhhhh.

    amazon.com

    The set comes with a two-inch flat brush, a four-inch flat brush, and a round brush. Heads up that the drill is *not* included, but consider a basic Black and Decker one ($49 on Amazon) if your toolbox is in need.

    Promising review: "I thought my hard water stains would never come off my shower doors, but I bought this awesome brush set, and it's amazing! I’ve tried all the hacks — drier sheets, clean erasers, lemon, vinegar — nothing works like this brush! I used Zep shower cleaner with it! In the picture, the side on the right is the part of the door I cleaned, and I still have to clean the left side." —Traci D.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in six colors and stiffness levels).

    28. A can of Easy-Off oven cleaner because you shouldn't have to clean your oven with JUST elbow grease. Cooking without setting off the fire alarm used to be the stuff of legends, but now it's your reality.

    amazon.com

    This product works in just *40 minutes*, but it's safe to leave overnight for maximum effectiveness (or if you're just feeling lazy).

    Promising review: "Simply UNBELIEVABLE. Fume-free and no gloves needed, but dissolves ANYTHING cooked on! I had not cleaned my oven EVER. I simply sprayed it on, shut the door overnight, and wiped it off with paper towels. I don't have to dread cleaning the oven ever again! You can use it for everyday spot cleaning and only have to let it sit for a couple hours for minor things. I used it on my broiler pan that would not scrub clean with even steel wool — no need to scrub ever again now! My crockpot leaked over the bowl and burned on inside of the heating chamber. I just sprayed, covered, and wiped in morning. I plan on using it to clean the grill in the spring and am sure it will make it a breeze." —Andrew J.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.65.

    29. A ceramic stovetop cleaning kit that's like the undo button for cooktop errors. This high-maintenance appliance doesn't get the satisfaction of stressing you out anymore. You're too powerful!

    amazon.com

    The kit comes with the ceramic cooktop cleaner, a scraper, 10 scrubbing pads, and burnt-on grease remover.

    Promising review: "We, regrettably, had not properly cleaned our glass stove top for six months. We’d wipe and clean with generic products we had, but nothing removed the deep stains. It was not properly maintained by the previous tenants either, so I wasn’t hopeful we’d get it back to its original appearance. It looked horrible. With help of the razor, this product completely transformed our stove top. It looks like it was just installed. I’m so happy and relieved. This will be a must-have item in our kitchen for years to come." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    30. An all-purpose car cleaner for maintaining your vehicle's leather, vinyl, carpet, upholstery, plastic, and rubber. You may not be able to put your car inside of a protective shield, but this is pretty close.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have used every product that you can find on the shelves of your local store. When I sprayed the cleaner on the light beige interior of a 25+ year-old car, the interior turned to its original color. After years of detailing, I had assumed at this point, the color was set and that's it, not with this stuff. While cleaning it I literally said out loud, 'No way, no way,' because I was in disbelief at how amazing it worked, and the results are in the compliments I receive from friends." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    31. A bottle of Fanola purple shampoo to keep your gorgeous (and probably expensive!) platinum hair from getting brassy. Just scrub-a-dub-dub and blamo! You've restored your dye job and saved $100 at the salon.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm not one to leave reviews, but this product deserves it! Holy cow! I was going to go into the salon to brighten my hair up, but after discovering this product I cancelled my appointment. I'm totally in love! This shampoo is not drying at all and just after two washes I achieved my desired results! I can't recommend it enough!" —Rachael

    Get it from Amazon for $12.97.
