    41 Products To Help Make A Few Little Problems *Poof* Disappear

    Time to leave life's little annoyances behind.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. 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 set of egg rings, because there's nothing worse than trying to fry the perfect egg for a breakfast sammie, only to have it spread a thousand miles across your nonstick pan. With egg rings you'll get a flawless egg every. single. time.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "With these rings, dinner every night will be eggs. I have a large skillet that I love using for everything and obviously cracking an egg on a 20-inch skillet would result in the thinnest 20-inch long egg. Now I can make four eggs at the same time, they look like eggs, and they fit perfectly onto a bread/bagel sandwich. It does leak sometimes, but mostly because I rush to lift the ring before the egg is cooked properly on the sides. The trick is to keep the skillet heated properly and have some butter or other lard before adding the eggs. The rings are sturdy and easy to clean. No melting issues or anything. Great product, 10/10." —KS

    2. A sock-pairing device that will prevent the heartbreak of losing a sock in the wash. Learn to trust again, and rest assured that your socks are together forever.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These work. They are of good quality construction. I had a sock problem, and these have stopped the unexplained disappearance of socks. Obviously, the sock monster can't swallow the Sock Dock full of socks, only single socks." —A.D. Burnette

    Get it from Amazon for $16 (available in five colors).

    3. A foot file so you can avoid making that awful scratching noise every time you brush your heels on your sheets. Yes, it's basically a heel cheese grater, but that won't stop it from getting you results.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "OMG, these should be standard issue to every human. I’ve bought them all — the cheap foot files and the expensive ones. None of them remotely compare to this one. I thought I was doomed to have course heels forever, but no more! With just one use, my heels are fabulous! The callouses this thing removed were absolutely disgusting, but I couldn’t be happier. You won’t be disappointed!" —JMart

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95.

    4. A Blueapple freshness extender that'll keep all of your produce fresh as can be until you're ready to actually use it. Reduce food waste and cook with the most delish produce just by placing this little guy in your fridge.

    Amazon

    The Blueapple works by absorbing ethylene gas, which is what causes produce to ripen. Each Blueapple lasts for three months.

    Promising review: "It works. Simple as that. I have even ordered more because it works wonders in my vegetable drawer and also in my fruit basket. Before it seemed things would go bad so fast (three to four days). Now I can see veggies last two weeks — some fruits a week longer than expected." —MFC

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $19.99.

    5. A stainless steel "soap" bar so you can easily wash away the lingering smell of garlic and onions after chopping. If you don't cook with a ton of garlic, we are not friends. But if you smell like a ton of garlic, we are also not friends. This soap bar will save our relationship.

    Amazon

    Reviewers say this bar also helps with body odor! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Promising review: "This bar is for real. I know there is science behind it but it feels like magic. The onion smell disappears from your hands instantly. Every kitchen needs this. Have had it for years now and no rust or any sign of wear. Looks and works like it’s brand new." —kallisto

    Get it from Amazon for $7.77.

    6. Black Girl Sunscreen that is made for and by women of color and is ultra-sheer, ensuring there's *no* annoying white cast or residue. It's SPF 30, doubles as a moisturizing lotion with avocado and jojoba among its list of hydrating ingredients, and layers under makeup flawlessly!

    Target

    Black Girl Sunscreen is paraben-, fragrance-, oxybenzone-, octinoxate-, silicone-, and aluminum-free, as well as cruelty-free and vegan.

    Promising review: "Oh my goodness! This sunscreen is unbelievable! It goes on smoothly and leaves no purple/white residue on my skin. This is a game-changer! I put this on my face and almost could not believe the results. My son has EXTREMELY sensitive skin, and I have had no issues with him using this. Glides on smooth and feels lightweight. Love it!" —J9owens

    Get it from Black Girl Sunscreen for $18.99 or Target for $15.99. Also available in a kids version!

    7. A pack of Bottle Bright tablets so it's not the end of the world every time you leave a tumbler in your car (for, ahem, six months). With these little angels, that horrid goop you would normally toss your tumbler over is no biggie.

    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.

    8. A red wine stain remover that proves there's no use crying over spilled merlot (that's a phrase, right?). Just spritz, wipe, and forget that you ever fumbled when using your wine glass as a karaoke mic.

    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.

    9. A coffee subscription from Rwanda Bean so you never have that sinking feeling of waking up and realizing you're all out of java. Get four bags of coffee in any grind style from whole bean to espresso every month and get brewing!

    Rwanda Bean

    50% of Rwanda Bean's profits are put toward farmers, families, and community projects — as if you needed another reason to buy coffee! This is a variety pack, but you can shop their other subscriptions here if you'd prefer four bags of your favorite roast.

    Get it from Rwanda Bean for $49/month (available in eight grind styles).

    10. A Imarku Pro Chef's Knife, because there are few kitchen problems that can't be solved with a nice, sharp, all-purpose knife.

    knife with wood grain handle on cutting board
    Amazon

    I bought this knife for my parents, and they love it!

    Promising review: "I have never used a knife that slides through everything with such ease. I went to slice open the plastic packaging for the sausages I was cooking, and I thought I had missed the plastic, it was that smooth. I barely had to apply any pressure when slicing up the sausages. Cutting up the carrots, cauliflower, and apples was amazingly easy as well. I'm going to take good care of this little gem of a knife!" —Paul B. Huter

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in seven styles).

    11. A shopping bag carrier that will spare you multiple trips back and forth from the car after you run errands. Grab all of your bags in one fell swoop and get on with your day.

    youtube.com

    Promising review: "I've tried so many different products that are supposed to allow you to carry multiple bags at once, but nothing has worked as well as this! It's easy to use: Just hold one end of the handle and thread the other end through the handles on the bags. Carrying the bags over my shoulder works really well for me because it allows me to spread the weight of the bags over my hips and back rather than taking all the weight on my shoulder. It's very well-made, sturdy, and really makes your life easier. It's worth the money." —S. Hill

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in four colors).

    12. A Pur faucet water filter for making your tap water safe and delicious to drink. Reclaim the fridge space the bulky pitcher filter was taking up by going straight to the sweet, sweet source.

    model filling glass with water from faucet with attached Pur filter
    instagram.com

    The faucet requires no tools to attach, fits most faucets, and can switch between filtered and unfiltered modes.

    Promising review: "We live in a park that has well water, and it tastes n-a-s-t-y. We were thinking of having water delivered as we have bought so much bottled water in the past couple years. We thought we'd give it a try, as the price was fair and the installation is easy — just pop it on the faucet. No hoses, no plumbing nightmares or trying to figure out what is what. It was a great decision, as we can now drink the water and save a ton on groceries not having to buy drinking water or water to cook with." —ValueHunterG1

    Get it from Walmart for $38.49.

    13. An earwax remover to quickly and safely remove all of your waxy buildup. I deeply want to use this, but I'm honestly going to throw up if I keep looking at this photo any longer, so, um, moving on.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    The kit includes the washer bottle and three disposable tips.

    Promising review: "I’ve suffered with wax buildup for the past few years and it became a routine to go to the doctor every 3–5 months to get my ears cleaned. It was a total hassle and the price of having to go to the doctor that frequently for such a small thing adds up. I finally bought this and I’m so glad I did. Now I clean my ears monthly with this product, and I no longer suffer with impacted ear wax. I can’t recommend this enough to anyone who deals with wax buildup, it may be gross but this really helps." —Lisa and Fiona

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    14. An eco-friendly cleaning kit that makes it super-duper easy to get all of your essentials in one place. Simultaneously reduce your plastic use and get your home squeaky clean with this glass bottle and tablet set.

    the clean essentials kit
    Blueland

    The kit comes with three reusable cleaning bottles, one reusable foaming hand soap bottle and four tablets — one each for multi-surface, glass and mirror, bathroom, and foaming hand soap solutions. Just fill each bottle with water and drop in the corresponding tablet. It's as simple as that! The cleaner is made with no triclosan, parabens, phosphates, ammonia, or VOCs.

    Promising review: "Love this product. Our cleaning supply cupboard is so simple now. No more bottles falling over each other. All the cleaners work really well. I really like the scent of each product. Can't wait to get my refills." —Jaqueline B

    Get the kit from Blueland for $39 and check out all of their kit options here.

    15. A sleep eye mask with bluetooth headphones so you don't get tangled in a pesky headphone cord if you want to fall asleep listening to music or — like me — the same podcast episode for the thousandth time.

    reviewer in eye mask with wide band that covers the ears
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The first thing I noticed was how soft it is. I have tried other sleep masks but they usually end up with some seam feeling scratchy on my nose. I love the size of this and how well it fits with the adjustable velcro straps. It blocks light very well, which is great for me as I cannot stand any light when I sleep. I also use a sound machine app and had no trouble pairing this to my phone and playing my sounds. It has really good quality audio and was still playing when I woke up in the morning after about six hours." —TSpencer

    Get it from Amazon for $22.59.

    16. A wall-mounted grocery bag dispenser to give your typical plastic tornado an orderly system and turns "Ugh, messy," into "Ooo, shiny."

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "What a nifty bag organizer! When I think back on all the time I've spent pressing out the air, flattening, and then folding grocery bags so I could use them later as garbage sacks, it would be worth it to have paid $100+ for this handy bag organizer. Just stuff the bags in the opening until it's full. When you want to remove a bag, simply grab one from the slot on the front and pull. It easily comes out. The brushed stainless steel is a vision of beauty to behold. Perfection if you are going to mount it in a visible location. I'm not. Mine is going on the inside of the cabinet door under my kitchen sink. Doesn't matter if it's not easily seen. I should be able to look at beauty when I open my cabinet door, too. I highly recommend this item." —Lynne

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    17. An oven thermometer that, although simple, will take all the guesswork out of making sure your oven is all tuned up. Gone are the days of using "My oven runs hot!" as an excuse for dry chicken, the greatest of sins.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a great value for the product. The ovens I have used have always seemed to be a bit off, so this was very important to have around the house especially for recipes that need a very specific temperature. My wife bakes a lot and before having an oven thermometer, she often times over-baked or under-baked her recipes. This thermostat can hang easily on the oven rack and is easy to read, making it helpful for any dish that needs to be baked at a certain temperature. Highly recommend this product!" —Abe

    Get it from Amazon for $8.20.

    18. A bottle of wrinkle releaser spray so you can kiss that dumb, clunky iron goodbye and even save a little time every morning.

    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 $27.79.

    19. A jar opener for all the times you need a little extra elbow grease...even though you totally loosened it on your own first.

    Amazon

    The jar-opener can expand and contract to accommodate lids from 1 to 3.5 inches. It's also dishwasher safe, just in case.

    Promising review: "This is a very versatile jar opener that, unlike so many others, expands with a twist of the knob to accommodate larger jar lids. Once applied and tightened, the handle provides great leverage to open even the most stubborn of jars. I tried to open a wide-mouthed pickle jar by hand and had no success after many tries, which included running the lid under hot water and knocking it against a granite countertop. Then I applied the Kuhn Rikon to the pickle jar, tightened it against the edges of the lid, grabbed the handle and, voila! It opened with one nudge." —Steven Arnold

    Get it from Amazon for $20.85.

    20. A pack of Sugru, a moldable glue that sets overnight into silicone rubber. Fix pesky fraying cords, mend toy dinosaur knees, and even hang art on the walls, all with this handy dough.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Sugru is waterproof, heat- and cold-resistant, durable, flexible, shock-resistant and electrically insulating up to 24 volts. It bonds to glass, ceramic, wood, metal, and most plastics. It can also bond to walls and safely hold 4.4 lbs.

    Promising review: "This is the greatest product EVER — it lives up to all hype. I used it to repair the bands on several IRREPLACEABLE glass rings. Not only is it rubbery enough to make a comfortable fit and sticky enough to bond to glass, it’s many colors made matching a breeze! I’ve already used it to repair broken earbuds, place nearly invisible hooks everywhere so chargers don’t get tangled up in my iRobot vacuum, and even used it to make hanging loops on jars so I could put my collection of completely random tillandsia gardens on the wall! I couldn’t recommend more highly." —Fawn Force

    Get an eight-pack from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in seven colors).

    21. A bidet if you find yourself using wayyyy too much toilet paper. It's more efficient and eco-friendly than TP. And a mini butt shower every time you poop? Literally the dream.

    bidet with small dial attached to toilet
    Amazon

    The bidet's nozzle retracts to keep it safe and clean when everything's...ya know...going down. It comes with everything you need for easy installation — even the tools — and is compatible with most standard toilets.

    Promising review: "Speaking as a hirsute gentleman, the Luxe Bidet Neo 120 has soured me on pooping in bidet-less toilets forever. It's shown me the difference between rubbing peanut butter out of shag carpeting with a paper towel, and that sparkling clean feeling you get right when you step out of the shower. The unit took me all of about 10 minutes to install on my existing toilet with only a wrench. The easy-to-control flow valve allows you to provide just the right amount of water pressure for a full range of cleaning, from 'gentle trickling stream' to 'full-on Silkwood decontamination,' ensuring the end of your bowel movement leaves you feeling cleaner and more refreshed than using just toilet paper alone. Even flush-able wet wipes pale in comparison." —Mercury

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95 (available in two colors).

    Btw, the Luxe Bidet Neo 120 was our $$$ pick for best toilet paper (well, best way to get your butt clean) on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    22. A pair of Bandelettes that prevent painful thigh rubbing and look damn good while doing it.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "These are the best thing to happen to my big thighs. They have generous silicone anti-slip around the top and bottom on the inside. They keep my thighs from rubbing and chafing in shorts or dresses AND they’re pretty!" —Lizzy S.

    Get them from Amazon for $18.95+ (available in sizes A–F and 17 colors).

    23. An 11-in-1 stainless steel pocket tool because no task is too big for this little instrument. It's your own personal Inspector Gadget.

    multi-tool tucked into a wallet
    Amazon

    The multi-tool includes a can opener, bottle opener, 4-position wrench, 2-position wrench, butterfly screw wrench, direction ancillary wrench, knife edge, saw blade, screwdriver, ruler, and keychain hole.

    Promising review: "I rarely use tools, but on the rare occasion that I need one, I groan thinking that I need to go buy the respective tool. This multi-use pocket tool is just what a gal like me needs! The best thing about it is that unlike other multi-tools, it is flat and fits in your wallet! They also provide a carrying case so you can store it in your bag. They advertise a keyring hole, which is the one thing I would advise against, because the knife edge and saw blade are sharp and I wouldn't want this tool hanging around my body. But on the bright side, with the stainless steel material, the tools are actually sharp — a pleasant surprise. This won't break with average use." —Johann Christine Alcaraz

    Get it from Amazon for $5.44.

    24. An essential oil migraine relief stick so you can finally tell your headaches to buzz off. The bottle is small enough for you to carry everywhere, and based on the cult-status love of this stuff, you'll probably want to.

    Katy Herman / Via BuzzFeed, Yi Yang / 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.

    25. A pair of charcoal deodorizers to freshen up your shoes that — I'm telling you this because I'm your friend — smell like absolute garbage.

    Amazon

    To recharge these babies, just place them in a nice sunbeam.

    Promising review: "I have a pair of black leather flats that stank so badly my husband would yell if I took them off anywhere near him. But I love the shoes! I had to find something to make the stench go away. Mini Moso was the answer. I honestly couldn’t believe it. A few days after placing them in my prized shoes, I took a whiff from about a foot away. Nothing. I got closer. Nothing. I stuck my nose practically in the shoe. Ok, maybe that’s pushing things, but I’ve got to tell you that 95% of the broken-in leather grossness was gone. So happy!" —Erin

    Get a pair from Amazon for $9.95 (available in two colors).

    26. An eyeshadow primer so the look you spent so long on this morning can stay in ~prime~ condition all the live long day.

    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.

    27. A simple backseat purse holder to keep your precious cargo off the ground and out from anyone's feet. Your car will look nice and tidy (for once).

    The hooks have a side-opening attachment for easy install, so worry not. No seats will be harmed in the organization of this car.

    Promising review: "I love these! I recently purchased a smaller car and don't have room for my purse in the front seat anymore. These books are awesome and sturdy." —Erin

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95+ (available in two colors).

    28. Some BodyGlide anti-blister balm and anti-chafe balm for rescuing your heels and thighs from agonizing rubbing and rash this summer.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "The real hero of every music festival. I wore (and shared with friends) at a very hot, sweaty Bonnaroo with ZERO CHUB RUB. This has zero odor or stickiness, and lasts a long time. I'll bring it with me anywhere I might be sweating and walking in shorts or a skirt. A must-have for the summer." —Kelliente

    amazon.com

    A magnet in the middle of the Cableyoyo keeps everything nice and tight without damaging the headphones.

    Promising review: "Excellent product! I bought it as a gift for my husband and he loves it. It keeps his headphones tidy and easy to use on the go. The magnet bit is also helpful to keep the earbuds in place. I bought the green color, lightweight and good quality. Very satisfied with this product!" —JeKa

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95 (available in two colors).

    30. An itsy-bitsy toenail brace that fixes HUGE toenail problems. Your ingrown and curved toenails don't stand a chance next to these little vices.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    The kit comes with ten toenail braces and the materials needed to apply them.

    Promising review: "I never realized how curved and not-ok my toenails were. I thought the pain I had was just normal and a fact of life. Only when I read about the Curve Correct product did I realize that I had a major problem that could be resolved! Now I'm on the way to normal, flat toenails that DON'T grow curved into my skin!" —Jamie H.

    Get the kit from Amazon for $44.99.

    31. A pair of nail clippers that catch all of your trimmings instead of creating a tiny pile of disgustingness for you to clean up.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    The clippers have a file on the bottom and also come in a really nice case!

    Promising review: "Best nail clipper I've ever owned. All my life I've had stainless steel nail clippers that slip from my fingers whenever I have to cut my nails, which bends the nail and adds pressure onto my nail bed. With these clippers, the groove lets my thumb sit comfortably. It cuts very well, and there's no need to put too much pressure when cutting a tough nail. The nail catcher is a good bonus. It prevents your nail debris from flying all over the place so you don't need to hover over the trash can. I use the built-in nail file to shape those sharp edges and it does the job very well. It eliminates the use of switching over to an individual nail file. I also like the little case that it comes in. It keeps me from losing my nail clippers." —Jasmine

    Get them from Amazon for $12.99.

    32. A set of heel caps to prevent your stilettos from sinking into grass, gravel, and dirt — no more putting all of your weight into your toes and hoping your heel doesn't get sucked into the earth.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I just tried these last weekend at an outdoor wedding with an indoor reception. They were amazing! I kept them on all night. First, I walked outside in thick grass, and the wedding photos were taken in a mushy grassy area. I didn't sink even a little bit. It was fantastic. My heels were fabulous. I then decided to leave them on for the rest of the night since they made my heels more stable and comfortable. So glad I tried them. I was showing them off to the other ladies, and everyone loved the look of them." —J. L. Dossey

    Get a pair on Amazon for $9.99 (available in three sizes).

    33. A sauce holder for your car so you don't have to balance that honey mustard on your knee after hitting the drive-through.

    Get it from 3DPrintedByBrian on Etsy for $5.52+ (available in single or double dippers).

    34. A hanger stacker to keep your closet or bedroom floor from looking like a game of pick up sticks. Your room deserves this level of before and after after all the mess you've subjected it to.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The struggle with hangers has been real for quite some time, I wish I would have known about this thing sooner! This has saved me a TON of room and hassle!"—Kara

    Get it from Amazon for $18.40.

    35. A clean/dirty dishwasher magnet so the members of your household can finally talk about something else other than the status of the dishware.

    octogon magnet that can be turned to read "clean" or "dirty" on a dishwasher
    Amazon

    Promising review: "My kid always used to ask, 'MOM ARE THESE CLEAN OR DIRTY DISHES?' Now, I don’t have to answer the same question over and over again. Thank you! It works great. I just stick it to the dishwasher and turn it so they know if the dishes are clean or dirty. I’ve had this for five or more years now. I love it." —Brighteyez

    Get it from Amazon for $4.70.

    36. An automatic pan stirrer that *actually* stirs your dish for you! With this gadget working your labor-intensive sauce, you're free to sit back, relax, and enjoy living in the future.

    UncommonGoods

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

    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.

    37. A shower beer and wine holder so you don't have to place your precious beverage on the slippery side of the tub, tempting fate and gravity.

    Promising review: "We absolutely love this product. We have an Airstream and had been looking for wine and beverage holders that would work with the stainless interior walls. After looking at many competitors, we decided to give SipCaddy a try because it wasn't permanent and we were worried about leaving any marks to the interior. I have to say that they work perfectly and have lived up to their description. The suction cup mount has a firm hold and we haven't had any spills or accidents. We also have used them in our little boat and again they have worked like a charm. A+++" —Dale Risenhoover

    38. A ridiculously absorbant microfiber hair turban that'll get your hair dry a LOT quicker than a regular towel.

    Promising review: "I wash my hair every day, and it normally takes 20–25 minutes to blow dry with water dripping everywhere. This turban is my savior! I can just wear it after showering, do other things for 15 minutes, then the blow dry takes only five minutes! It's really great, especially in the summer. Who wants to have a hot dryer facing you for 25 minutes in this heat? I've used it for a year every day, and it's still doing the job perfectly." —Web Shopper

    39. A pack of Mighty Patches — breakout-fighting facial stickers that suck gunk and sebum out of pimples overnight. Oh, how I wish every problem could be solved with a sticker.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "If you have issues with acne (especially those nasty whiteheads) but can't afford all the fancy step-by-step treatments out there, you at least need to buy these. This truly worked at minimizing my pimples, sucking up the wound, and keeping big pimples from getting worse. It really does draw up the pus to the patch! I leave one on overnight and just slowly peel off and then wipe away any remaining pus. I even let my mom who was visiting try it on her pimple and she loved them, so I had to order more!" —Megan Meehan

    Promising review: "Amazing! My nails have transformed and have NEVER been this healthy-looking and strong. This is a must-have product. You will see results in about a month of daily application." —Amazon Customer

    41. A Tile Sport for keeping track of all of your valuables. Just attach it to your keys, bag — heck, even your cat — to keep tabs on them.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    The Tile Sport has a 200-foot range, rings when you need to find it, can make your phone ring even when it's on silent, and is waterproof.

    Promising review: "Finally went and got this after I was done with losing my keys all the time. Being able to literally ring my keys not to mention other items has proved invaluable and has saved me a lot of time not having to look for important things like this. Highly recommend." —Dave
