    1. A surface cover to transform your kitchen counters and tables into beautiful marble pieces, without needing to spend the time or money on calling a professional to re-do your kitchen.

    2. A pair of scratch guards so that your little furry friend β€” who seems to think your upholstered furniture is a toy β€” doesn't cost you damage equal to your last paycheck.

    3. A pack of furniture touch-up sticks you'll wish existed back when you were a little one, because maybe then your parents would have THANKED YOU instead of grounding you for drawing on your furniture. 🀷

    4. A pumice cleaning stone that'll scratch away at those β€” TBH, pretty repulsive β€” toilet stains without leaving horrid scratch marks in the bowl.

    5. Paint touch-up so you can quickly fix chips, cracks, and stains on your walls without having to re-do the whole darn thing.

    6. A fabric defuzzer you'll just glide over an area of clothing/furniture that's covered in unwanted fuzzies.

    7. A bottle of hardwood floor cleaner for a super quick, simple, and β€” most importantly β€” effective way of cleaning: just squirt, mop, and BAM!

    8. An oil stain remover you just stir-up, apply to a stain, and let sit and dry for about 72 hours. Then you can do a little dance to celebrate your oil stain being gone.

    9. A microfiber blind cleaner for saying goodbye to dust! 🎡 I can see the sun clearly now the dust is gone. 🎡

    10. A garbage disposal foaming cleaner that'll tackle built-up grime and those nasty smells you gag at every time you, family members, or guests go near your kitchen sink. It's truly so...disgusting.

    11. A FlexiSnake you ~snake~ down your drains, and then pull back up a gag-worthy amount of hair. But hey, at least your drains are clean!

    12. A silicone drain protector to catch hair before it even has the chance to clog your drains. This means not having to call a plumber, not having to take off work to wait for the plumber to arrive at your place, not having to spend half your paycheck on the plumber fixing your clogged drains... I think you get the point.

    13. A rust stain remover spray you can basically think of as fairy pixie dust in a bottle. I mean, just look at the photo below. Point proven. Case closed. Onto the next one.

    14. A wood polish and conditioner to help restore your wooden furniture back to factory condition. Did you just get your entire house re-done by an HGTV crew, or are you just super good at picking out cleaning products?

    15. Bar Keepers Friend soft cleanser so you can get a multitude of surfaces and objects in your home looking as good, if not better, than the day you purchased them.

    16. Magic Erasers you can simply activate with some water and then wipe away at hard water, soap scum, grime, and more yucky messes throughout your home!

    17. A touch-up paint pen you fill with your paint color of choice and then just apply to any imperfections you're trying to cover-up.

    18. An oven cleaning spray so next time you go to open the oven door and pop in dinner, you're not tempted to puke all over it because of the yucky build-up you've let it accumulate.

    19. Bar Keepers Friend soft cleanser to help you get a bunch of surfaces and objects in your home looking as good, if not better, than they did on day one.

    20. A stainless steel polishing spray with a microfiber cloth that'll make your stainless steel appliances look as if they were just delivered to your house yesterday.

    21. A carpet spot remover spray to clean stains so fast and easy, Stanley Steemer is going to start plugging YOUR phone number in their catchy jingles.

    22. A mold and mildew removal gel for making your bathroom surfaces look brand new. Mold and mildew are bound to happen, but there's no need to fret or call a professional to treat it!

    23. A grout pen that'll have your floors shining like the top of the Chrysler building in no time at all. Did you hire a fancy schmancy service to clean your tiles? Nope, you used a PEN to cover it all up.

    24. A cooktop cleaning kit because look: you're using the thing to make your meals, so naturally it's going to get dirty. Sometimes things fall out of the pot, sometimes things splatter from the pan, and sometimes burns happen because you're too busy dancing to the Jonas Brothers and forgot about your pasta... AGAIN not speaking from personal experience!

    25. A pet hair removal broom and squeegee that'll help you get rid of the furry mess your pet leaves behind. It might not be visible to the naked eye, but you just KNOW it's living in your carpet... and TBH... it's quite gross.
