Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A Spatty that's specifically designed to help you get at least 25% more product out of any bottle, container, or receptacle with a narrow opening. Now you WILL use every last drop of that expensive moisturizer that's saved your face this summer.

    Spatty being used to apply tomato sauce to pizza crust

    Promising review: "You don't know how many times I've wished I had a small spatula to get the small amount of liquid foundation in the bottle that just would NOT come out, no matter what. I tried turning the bottles upside down and tried scraping the makeup out with anything that I thought might help get the last little bit from the bottom of the bottle. I ordered two sets of these, one for my makeup drawer and another set to use in the kitchen. Thank you for this wonderful product! I love them!" —mtnluci

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (for a set of two).

    2. A skeleton ice cube mold tray to make four HUGE ice cubes. Listen, we get that the skull is cool, but the practical side is just as good: because the cube is so big, it'll take waaaay longer to melt. Your drinks will stay cool and not watered down for quite awhile.


    Promising review: "The silicone mold is rigid enough to hold its shape but flexible enough to pop out the finished product without damaging either the ice or the mold. The level of detail is pretty impressive." —David M

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    3. A sheet of stick-on sound dampeners that attaches to your cabinet doors, so if someone — say, a roommate at 2 a.m. — accidentally slams the door shut, it won't make nearly as much noise as before.,

    Promising review: "These work very well to dampen the sounds of my idiot roommates slamming cabinet doors at all hours of the day. Just make sure you're wiping down the part of the cabinet they'll stick to before applying them. The adhesive is good and should hold for a while." —LMA

    Get it from Amazon for $6.98 (for a sheet of 100).

    4. An underwear and sock divider insert because you deserve to open a drawer and actually see what your options are instead of feeling like you're staring into the abyss.

    Underwear and socks rolled up in storage insert

    Promising review: "I got this organizer for my daughter's drawers. I was so tired of putting her clothes away and barely closing the drawer because she had so much stuff packed into it. These organizers fit in her drawers perfectly. They came ready to go. All I had to do was zip the bottom to make it stable and put it in the drawer. I used one in her underwear drawer and the drawer looks so wonderful and organized. The compartments are a good size. I was able to get two pairs of underwear into most of the compartments. This is a sturdy organizer and a well-made product." —Kari and Kevin

    Get it from Amazon for $10.88+ (available in two sizes and seven colors).

    5. A set of four vintage-style botanical prints that are 8x10 each. Just separately pick out whatever frames suit your aesthetic and voilà! Your wall looks like something out of a museum.

    Set of four vintage botanical prints

    Promising review: "Good quality. I loved being able to purchase these and put them in frames for a fraction of the cost of other look-alikes. Took some digging to find frames that were good-looking and a good price, but I found them. Love my botanical wall." —Mon

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (for four 8x10 prints; also available with frames).

    6. A set of poison- and pesticide-free "disgustingly effective" sticky insect traps to get any infestation of flying insects under control. Reviewers swear that these traps completely wipe out common houseplant insects.,

    Promising review: "Holy cow these suckers work! I'm so grossed out by the result, but at the same time I have a sick sense of satisfaction. I used these in my house plants that are breeding fungus gnats like crazy. I used them in conjunction with beneficial nematodes, and they definitely cut down on the number of gnats in our house. Unfortunately I added a new houseplant, plus repotted one that had outgrown its prior home, and we are wrapped up in them again. I'm buying another package of sticky traps as soon as I finish this review!" —Megan

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    7. A reusable sponge made out of bold and graphic fabrics that have a soft side for sensitive surfaces and a polyester side for scrubbing. Each sponge is mildew-resistant, machine-washable, hypoallergenic, and made from recycled materials.

    Marley's Monsters / Etsy

    Marley's Monsters is a woman-owned small business based in Eugene, Oregon making eco-friendly kitchen and bathroom cleaning essentials.

    Promising review: "Beautiful sponges with cute fabric prints! They clean my dishes without scratches and are great for cleaning counters and appliances in the kitchen. And are washable in my washing machine! After washing in my machine they come out unscathed and fresh!!! Will definitely order them again for myself and to put in gift baskets." —Anne Ostermeier

    Get it from Marley's Monsters on Etsy for $12+ (available as a single or a pack of three).

    8. A rapid egg cooker to easily cook up to six eggs any way you desire. Poached? You got it. Hard-boiled? Done. It can even make omelettes. Simply select your number of eggs and set the timer. When it's done it'll automatically shut off.

    Rapid egg cooker in blue

    Promising review: "I love hard-boiled eggs for protein especially when I’m on the go as a student/worker but it’s hard to wait for the water to boil then put in the eggs and get ready all at the same time. This cooker is amazing!! Saves me time, it’s quick, and I don’t have to watch it while it cooks — I can go get ready and then I hear a loud buzzer notifying me when the eggs are done! (The buzzer is really loud; sounds like a basketball game buzzer.) I was surprised how fast the eggs cooked." —OnAJourney

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in six colors).

    9. A special shelf for books that — thanks to unique hardware — literally makes it look like your books are floating on the wall.

    Amazon, Kayla Boyd / BuzzFeed

    From BuzzFeed staffer Kayla Boyd: "I love my floating bookshelves because they save a lot of space and since I colorized them, they look like fun decor in my room. It definitely helps me get excited about reading more since they're so cute and visible. The shelves were also super easy to hang and, as you can see, they're very sturdy." —Kayla

    Promising review: "These are so much fun! We ordered the small size, which fits standard hardback books (approximately five to seven hardbacks in my experience). They're a great way to add some extra storage to our very small home, and we've placed them in our hallway so people ask us about them all the time. I'd highly recommend!" —LaBuenaVidaMere

    Get it from Amazon for $17.59+ (also available in sets of three).

    10. A surge protector with six pivoting outlets to make sure you don't have to unplug one device to use another.

    Surge protector with six outlets on wall

    Promising review: "I love that I can choose whether each plug is front-facing or turned to the side — makes for great cord management. I also love that the design uses the TOP plug on the outlet. So many I found use the bottom plug and all those reviewers complain that the weight of the adapters/cords pull the thing out of the wall. Finally, I like the versatility of being able to screw it into the outlet center point if you need the additional stability, but also that you don't have to do that if you want something more easily removable." —Susan B.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in black or white).

    11. A set of minimalist natural wood hooks that are both practical and cool looking.

    Four natural wood hooks on wall

    Promising review: "Me: I'm going to put hooks on the back of the door.

    Wife: No you're not. No hooks, nothing, nada, never.

    Me: Here are the hooks for the back of the door.

    Wife: Oh, those are so nice!!" —Ihaveopinions

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (for a pair; available in black walnut and beech wood).

    12. An over-the-door shoe organizer for keeping all your flats and sneakers off of the ground and on display. A third of the cubbies are clear — perfect for displaying other accessories like belts or small bags.

    Over-the-door shoe organizer

    Promising review: "I am so excited about this shoe holder. It is a first step for my family to get organized! This shoe holder helps keep everyone’s shoes off of the floor and hidden behind a door!" —amynannis

    Get it from Target for $17.

    13. A carpet spot remover that will remove even the most intense messes from carpets. Simply spray, rub, and boom! Your carpet will be like new again.

    Promising review: "I remember being completely dumbfounded by my pencil eraser as a kid. Where did the marks go? I looked in the air, I looked under my paper. What's it made of? Does it have to be pink? This carpet cleaner caused the same dumbfounded confusion when 'spray, rub, gone' actually worked. I've obviously lost some of my childhood curiosity over the years, because I didn't try to figure out how the carpet stain disappeared. Who cares? It's gone! I practically skipped to the next room to try it out. The memory smudge of food, footprints, dog vomit. Gone. It even worked SOMEWHAT on the decade-old mystery stain left behind by the previous owners that professional carpet cleaning couldn't remove. How does it work? I don't care. What are the ingredients? Pixie dust and incantation. Where did all the stains go? Away." —k

    Get it from Amazon for $11.73 (for a 32-ounce bottle).

    14. A wall-mounted mail organizer complete with key rack for making sure all the essentials are organized in your entryway. Never again will you be late to brunch because you can't find your keys.

    Mail in wall organization system, keys dangling on hooks

    Promising review: "Really good design and the price is right! I’ve been looking everywhere for a simple mail holder that had a somewhat thin profile and one that could mount to the wall (or in my case, a wooden panel)." —Brian

    Get it from Amazon for $10.49+ (available in five colors).

    While you're at it, check out some other products you might find useful in your pursuit of never getting locked out again.

    15. A storage system to stack pans in the cupboard. Because why is it the pan you need is *always* at the bottom of the pan pile?

    Pans stacked in organization system

    Promising review: "This rack is perfect. I put my largest skillet on the bottom and smallest at the top. I did not secure the rack with the screws that came with it so I can easily move it if I rearrange my pots and pans area. Even without securing it to the cabinet, it works perfectly and doesn't shift when I remove a pan. I also appreciate the color: Others I have seen are shiny silver, which I did not want. I will be buying another one of these for our cabin. I have already recommended this rack to friends." —CustomerO

    Get it from Amazon for $16.87.

    16. A silicone safeguard for preventing hot oil or water spills and splashes from the pot. The lid has a steam-release vent and is made from silicone, so it's easy to grip when you need to sneak a peek or remove it entirely.

    Water bubbling over on silicone safeguard

    Promising review: "Love this product! It does exactly what it is designed to do. It really works, has prevented many boil-overs for me. I can now make my oatmeal, pasta, or chicken broth without any worry of a messy spillover. I no longer have to stand near the stove to watch for the boil-over point, I can do other things or get distracted while this marvelous invention takes care of whatever I am simmering or boiling. It is a great value, you get two of them and I gave one to my son who cooks. It is also easy to clean, you can pop the yellow flower off for easier cleaning." —Hey Mom

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    17. A textured ombre shower curtain with rust-resistant rings. It's also machine-washable, so when the corners inevitably get gross just pop it in the washing machine and it'll be like new again.

    Textured ombre shower curtain

    Promising review: "Shower curtain is beautiful and looks EXACTLY like the photo in the description. I'm quite pleasantly surprised by the quality, especially for the price" —SI801

    Get it from Amazon for $15.12+ (available in 11 colors)

    18. Reusable towels for easy (and beautiful) clean up. Just wring them out before throwing them in the wash and they'll be just like new (again and again).

    Various towels of different color on table
    Saged Home / Etsy

    Each towel is made from 100% cotton flannel and are 12" x 10".

    Saged Home is a woman-owned small business out of Portland, Oregon founded by Ariel Russell. Some of their most popular items are reusable paper-less towels and all-purpose cleaners.

    Promising review: "I adore these! I had bought some cheaper paperless towels that did not hold up particularly well to washing and were not very absorbent. I replaced them with these! I absolutely love the variety of patterns and they’re extremely high quality, soft, thick and durable. They'd be great for use in the kitchen for mopping up spills or wiping surfaces. They arrived quickly and in package-free shipping materials. I highly recommend investing in these." —Sarah

    Get a six-pack from Saged Home on Etsy $16.50+ (available in six colors).

    19. A wooden phone dock so that you can watch TikTok while you eat your lunch at your desk. You only have so many hands.

    Wooden phone dock on table

    Promising review: "I love this charger. I have it set up in my home office. Looks sleek and high quality. Matches the color/grain of my desk. I am probably going to buy more of these to place around my home." —GadgetFreek

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in three colors).

    20. A set of loop hangers for organizing everything from scarves and leggings to belts and ties. Imagine all the space you'll save!,

    Promising review: "This is such a great way to store my scarves. I can fold them neatly and they are not wrinkled when I pull them out to wear them! I have used other types of scarf hangers and all my scarves ended up very wrinkled and disheveled looking." —luvnlifevt

    Get it from Amazon for $9.97.

    21. A photo mobile to show off your favorite photos and postcards in a cool, artsy wall. Bonus: it obviously doesn't take up any precious wall space.

    Photo mobile with clippings hanging

    Promising review: "There was no assembly required, which was a pleasant surprise. I have small Christmas ornaments hanging from this and it looks great." —Michelle R

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95+ (available in four styles).

    22. A "things to do around the house" pad for keeping yourself and others accountable. It also has a shopping list section that everyone can contribute to.

    Promising review: "These help me be so much more productive at home and it helps my husband to see how much I do each day as I can cross them off. The grocery list is very convenient too." —Bailey

    Get it from Amazon for $8.10+ (available in 14 colors).

    23. A mini bamboo brush and dustpan to clean up tiny messes. Thanks to its clever design, the brush actually nestles right into the dustpan so you don't lose one or the other.

    Mini bamboo brush and dustpan in hand

    Promising review: "I hung this on my kitchen wall to brush crumbs and whatnot off of my counters. It is exactly what I was looking for in size, appearance, and function. Would 100% buy again." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.12.

    24. A flexible shower caddy, because the ones that allegedly suction to the wall always fall off.

    Gray shower caddy with shampoos and loofah

    Promising review: This caddy is amazing. NO RUST! OMG. Can't begin to articulate how nice that is. I was concerned a bar of soap wouldn't work on this (all of the pictures showed liquid soap), but I was wrong. Fits just fine on the lower shelf, in any of the three spots that are available." —H H

    Get it from Amazon for $16.50 (available in gray, blue, and white).

    25. A reusable silicone bag that's absolutely perfect for storing leftovers. These baddies are leakproof, dishwasher-safe, and can be used in the freezer.

    Silicone bag containing leftover sandwich

    Promising review: "I've tried a LOT of reusable bags as there are a lot of options out there all using a variety of materials. The fabric ones just get gross over time. The vinyl ones are hard to clean and aren't usually dishwasher-safe. There are other silicone ones that need a separate rod to close them that you can easily lose. This one is the most simple and easy to use. No separate pieces to lose. Can withstand any temperature/microwave/dishwasher/whatever. And if they get gunky they are very easy to clean and I trust that they aren't hiding gross crumbs in any of the crevices. My only complaint is the cost — they are the most expensive and I wish they offered a bulk discount. If they were cheaper I would use them for EVERYTHING (open cheese in cheese drawer, all snacks on the go, etc)." —Megan A

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in 17 colors and four sizes).

    26. A set of silicone straws (with a cleaning brush) so you can look super stylish while also saving the turtles.,

    Promising review: "I originally started out using the stainless-steel straws — but I lived in this relentless, looming anxiety that I would chip my tooth on the point where I dreaded using my straws. Which defeats the point! I thoroughly enjoy that you can chew on these. 😂 I give 5 stars all around, they come with simple plastic bag to take them for travel, AND a cleaner utensil. They're super low maintenance, because they give you the proper care and cleaning tools. They also donate to the Oceana campaign effort to save the ocean!" —Amy Marquez-Vincent

    Get it from Amazon for $8.94 (for a set of 10).

    27. A house-shaped tissue box for adding a touch of character to an otherwise bland product.

    House-shaped white tissue box cover

    Promising review: "I first spotted this at a swanky modern hotel room with all-white decor. I love how it hides an unsightly branded tissue box — it practically vanishes! It looks so cute with the tissue-y 'billow' of smoke, and is functional too. Every modern minimalist's dream." —nycgirl

    Get it from Amazon for $17.29+ (available in four colors).

    29. A hanging cotton canvas laundry bag in case you're out of floor space or have limited mobility. Perfect for those living in dorms or who are on vacation.

    Canvas laundry bag hanging on door knob

    Promising review: "This hanging cotton canvas bag is a definite lifesaver for my bathroom floor. Instead of having to pick up laundry and collect it before going to the wash, we now can strip down before a shower and basketball — throw our clothing into the hamper. We have an older top-loading washer and this bag holds one full load of wash, which is great for saving space since we no longer need to keep a basket out for collection. This bag has been completely filled with jeans, and the metal frame and hook have not bent or warped from the weight, so it will hold up to heavy laundry." —Z

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in black and white).

    30. A rechargeable electric lighter which requires no flame, which makes it windproof, aka a whole lot easier to use outside.

    Promising review: "Looks cool... but most importantly, it works. It's absolutely windproof. And the charge it lets out is (or looks like) awesome purplish zap. It's easy to charge. This would be a great survival device — you could start a lot of fires on one charge. The only thing I had to get used to was not having a flame. If you're using this for cigarettes, you have to push the cigarette into the arch and move it around a little bit. After you get over that curve, it's amazing." —Ronald E. Mahler

    Get it from Amazon for $16.50+ (available in four colors).

    31. A set of fridge organization labels that have a ton of font, size, and color options. Imagine opening your fridge and everything is exactly where it's supposed to be.

    Organise Life / Etsy

    Organise Life is a small business out of Australia that focuses on pantry and home labels.

    Get it from Organise Life on Etsy for $1.62+ (available in small, medium, and large).

    32. A stainless-steel fish turner with slots for lifting, turning, and transferring whole fish and filets. Never again will you go to expertly turn a fish over, only to have it crumble into the pan because your spatula was too small.

    Stainless steel fish turner turning a piece of salmon

    Promising review: "This is my go-to turner when I'm cooking for anything — not just fish. I'm pretty particular about turners, which sounds odd, but if they aren't thin enough at the edge, it's hard to get them under the food. Metal is important so it's not floppy, and the length is great because it can hold larger pieces of food. Worth it." —Mary Schumann

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    33. A magnetized kitchen conversions chart to put on your fridge for quick conversions. Gone will be the days when you're scrambling to do the math for a measurement, all the while your food is starting to burn.

    Get it from Tahoe Wood Designs on Etsy for $9.99

    34. A drip catcher for soaking up water splashes and puddles that form around your kitchen faucet. Pools of standing water on your countertop can increase bacteria growth, and this product makes sure that never happens.


    Two Lilacs Studio is a woman-owned small business based in Saint Helens, Oregon making fabric goods for the home.

    Promising review: "LOVE these splash catchers! They save me from having to chase the puddles that form around the base of our faucet before they start creeping over the counter. So reasonably priced, made well with neatly finished edges, and packaged with gift-ready care." —Alina

    Get it from Two Lilacs Studio on Etsy for $12+ (available in four sizes and six colors).

    35. A five-in-one multitool that can truly do it all. It's a slotted spoon, solid spoon, spatula, turner, and a cutting tool! And yes of course it's dishwasher-safe.


    Promising review: "Give it a cap and a costume, this is the only thing I need in the kitchen! I am often looking for tools that can replace the other 30 I have collected in my kitchen. I have used this to flip grilled cheese, stir red beans and rice, strain Brussels sprouts, and taste sauce. I use the flat edge to cut onions that were too large once in the pot and scrape the bottom of the pan. The uni-tool feels nice in my hand, has held up fine in multiple dishwashings, and has allowed me to toss a few kitchen tools that have become obsolete." —Hiawhatha

    Get it from Amazon for $18.23.

    36. A cute and colorful cord wrap to make sure your electronics cords never get tangled again. It also perfectly fits earbuds.


    Promising review: "My sister-in-law is a busy mom with a bunch of kids and barely any time to get ready. So when I heard she was always misplacing her earbuds and that was eating into her gym time, I hopped onto Amazon and grabbed her the cutest earbud organizer I could find. She loves it, and it really helps because she can tuck it in her bag and even attach it to some of her workout bags." —TheOrdinaryHiker

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99 (available in 11 colors).

    37. An adjustable reading clip that's both dimmable and wireless. Simply charge it via USB and boom, you got yourself a reading light.

    Adjustable reading clip attached to desk surface

    Promising review: "This lamp is absolutely perfect. I get up early in the morning for my Bible study and this lamp gives off the perfect amount of light so I can see and not wake my husband. It also has a strong clip so my cat can't pull it down. I am thrilled with it." —Terra

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    38. A pack of three of battery-powered stick-anywhere lights to illuminate those tough areas like closets, drawers, and staircases.

    Adhesive light sensors being placed in drawer, closet, stairway, and book shelf

    Promising review: "I purchased these lights as a gift for my husband. We've been to a couple of nice hotels that would have motion-sensor lights under their beds that were nice when having to wake up in the middle of the night to use the restroom. The lights were incredibly easy to use, just put the AAA batteries (not included) in and voila! I placed them on a middle post under our bed and the adhesive backing seems to be holding up. Now anytime it's dark, because they won't turn on with the lights on, we can move around our room without having to turn any lights on and are able to see just fine. The lights also only stay on for about 10–15 seconds, which is perfect for us." —H. Michelle

    Get it from Amazon for $12.79+ (available in four colors).

    39. A foldable cutting board that feeds two birds with one scone. Because who has the time to chop veggies on a cutting board and then use another tool to get said veggies into the pan?

    Foldable cutting board being used to transfer mushrooms into pot

    Promising review: "These are the most amazing cutting boards! It is so handy to be able to slice, dice, chop, and then fold it up and pour into a bowl. I love them and have them in three sizes!" —C. Whitten

    Get it from Amazon for $8.10+ (available in six colors).

    40. A set of magnetic spice jar dispensers to show what spice is in the jar through a clear window in the front. This is also the perfect product for anyone who's short on cabinet space but has a lot of spices.

    Magnetic spice jars attached to refrigerator

    Promising review: "Finally!!! We searched for a long time for spice jars that would hold a nice amount of spices. These are perfect! With a pour or sprinkle option, window to see the spice level, strong magnet, and space-saving square shape! We planned to just put our 'popular' spices in them but we love them so much we are buying another set so we can have all our spices organized!!" —JT

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95+ (available in sets of three, six, and 12).

    41. An avocado slicer for effortlessly slicing avocado. Now your avocado toast will look like something out of a magazine.

    Avocado slicer slicing into avocado

    Promising review: "Avocado? Yes, Please! This tool is awesome. Easy to cut open the fruit. Pit remover works well, just push onto the pit and give it a twist, and the pit pops right out. The best part is the slicer. Makes beautiful slices for a great presentation. The tool can then be used to scrape any remaining fruit out of the skin. Really happy I bought this tool!" —NPR MAN

    Get it from Amazon for $9.82.

    42. A grill scrubber designed specifically to remove grease and grime from grills. It's stone, so it does the hard work so you don't have to.

    Grill scrubber in hand being used on grill

    Promising review: "My grill accumulated a lot of crud as a result of many cookouts. I tried to keep it as clean as possible with a wire brush and various cleaning pads and cleaners. I never could get the rack and grates to look like new. There was always a layer of permanent food residue, carbon, and other debris that defied removal. I decided to give the Magic Stone Grill Cleaner a shot. Surprise! Surprise! This is truly a magic stone. It removed everything from the grill parts that I worked on and left them looking like new. The cleaning process did put grooves in the bottom of the stone and that helped to get the sides cleaned off as well." —Duffer

    Get it from Amazon for $8.88.

    43. A pack of bed-sheet suspenders that will make sure your fitted sheet STAYS FITTED! Too often the corners of sheets creep off the mattress, and it's always in the middle of the night. This product fixes that problem.

    Bed-sheet suspenders holding yellow sheets onto mattress

    Promising review: "Amazing product. I am an architect. I hate a messed-up bed. I couldn't find thinner fitted sheets. I bought these clips. Did I say amazing? I often have shown my own home to potential clients in order to show them some of my work. The beds had to be neat when I did. I bought these clips with a lot of doubts. I CAN'T SAY HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO READ THE REVIEW FROM THE PERSON WHO DESCRIBES THE BEST WAY TO PUT ON THE CLIPS. (By flipping the fitted corners of the sheet up onto the top of the bed surface, applying the clips there, and THEN pulling everything back under the mattress. As opposed to all of the other reviewers who complain about how difficult it is to fasten the clips on while lifting up the corner of the mattress!) Once the clips are on, flip the fitted corner back down over the mattress and look at the great result. All of the excess fabric vanishes completely. I was expecting some kind of big pucker even while the sheets stayed in place, but there was nothing but tight, smooth fabric." —Steven P. Gray

    Get it from Amazon for $8.95 (for four; available in three sizes).

    Three-tiered over-the-door towel rack

    Promising review: "We needed a new towel rack to go over our door and this works perfectly. It does not interfere with our door closing in any way. This item arrived from Amazon when I was told it would arrive and was so easy to put together. There were some reviews that found this item difficult to assemble. There are six small screws and three poles. You just slide the poles into the holders at both ends and carefully put the small screws and tighten them. It took about five minutes if that to assemble and was very easy and it looks really nice as well. I found this to be very sturdy as well. The towel bar does the job it was intended for and you can easily slide towels on and off and hang clothes, wash clothes, etc. There are two hooks at the bottom as well." —Keith F.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.10+ (available in three finishes).

    46. And a sworn-by Magic Eraser, which can conquer any spill, scratch, or scruff. Seriously, this product is otherworldly in how well it works.

    Promising review: "Basically the best cleaning tool ever. Walls, counters, sinks, toys, you name it, I've used a Magic Eraser on it. We have a light-color sink basin in the kitchen and I use these once a week to keep it sparkling white. I used to have to use heavy-duty cleaner but just a quick wipe down with the Magic Eraser and it's good as new!" —seven4eleven

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (for a four-pack).
