    Gives your wooden furniture a protective, soft luster coating thanks to Carnauba wax and beeswax. It also prevents it from drying and fading. Good for use on antiques, dining tables, kitchen cabinets, wood doors, trim, and more.

    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, and several other areas that were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magic eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let it 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

    4. A pack of vacuum bags for storing clothing items you're not planning on wearing in a given season, and when you want less clutter in your closet! These don't create the same amount of bulk other storage bags would, so they're good to store under your bed!

    Promising review: "WHY didn't I buy these vacuum storage bags sooner?? I've only put them into several posts, and scrolled through the before + after review photos a million times, thinking 'man that would really help with my closet.' But it wasn't until I gazed in horror at the volume of sweaters I need to somehow store in my overflowing closet before unpacking my summer clothes that I FINALLY hit 'add to cart.' I chose the large size (as opposed to the biggest size, called 'jumbo') because it seemed easier to move and store — jumbo is probably perfect for bedding, duvets, etc! And just one large bag was plenty to store nine or 10 *very* large winter sweaters — all collapsed down to a fraction of their size. And it was surprisingly effortless, too! I didn't feel like breaking out the vacuum, so I just used the included hand pump, and it took maybe three minutes max to pump out the air and shrink the bag before replacing the cap — easy peasy! And no danger of re-inflation. My closet game is forever changed!!! All I can say is thank you Maitland, for actually taking your own advice for once. —Maitland Quitmeyer, BuzzFeed Editor

    5. Wet & Forget, a super simple cleaner you just spray in your shower/tub once a week. The best part? You don't have to scrub...like...at all. Just rinse it the next day and you're good to go. I know, I know, I'm crying tears of joy, too.

    Promising review: "We cannot BEGIN to tell you what a lifesaver this is! We have two old fiberglass tubs with vinyl shower enclosures that no matter what amount of scrubbing we have done with everything from bleach to cleanser to vinegar and baking soda would NOT come clean. After I took my shower last night, I sprayed down the tub and walls. Within minutes, all the built-up water deposits and dirt and grime began to melt away in front of my eyes. I left it on overnight, and when I got up this morning, it did not look like the same tub and shower. This product is a godsend, especially for old folks like us who have difficulty getting down on our hands and knees and scrubbing anything. More importantly, it performs as advertised. This is truly an overnight sensation!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.98.

    6. A pan rack that will make grabbing a pan a lot easier than digging through a whole pile — and also just make your pans aesthetically pleasing on your kitchen counter.

    This contains seven dividers to hold, you guessed it, seven pans! Plus, they're adjustable so if you have a pan that's a bit bigger or a bit smaller, you can adjust accordingly!

    Promising review: "These are absolutely wonderful and exactly what we needed. Super customizable to fit your needs. I bought two and was able to fit a variety of pots, pans, lids, and even a steamer tray! I love how organized these made my cabinets. I hated having to stack and unstack everything every time I needed something or was putting things away. My lids were a nightmare in and of themselves. When purchasing keep in mind the amount of clearance. I couldn't use them on the bottom shelf because they added about an inch of height to my pans." —Chelsey K

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    7. A natural tub and tile cleaner to help dissolve soap scum, hard water stains, and mineral deposits from your shower/bath floors and walls with minimal effort required on your end. Plus, it's non-toxic, free of synthetic fragrances, and smells like eucalyptus.

    Promising review: "I have an old shower/bathtub. I tried name brand shower cleaners and bleach to try and clean the soap scum off the tiles and tub. I had no luck and I would cough and get sick because of how strong the smell was. I thought I would try this to save my lungs. I sprayed my entire shower and left it for about 15 minutes. I came back and rinsed off the walls and they were shiny! I've never had such a clean shower. The smell is amazing and subtle. All I smell is tea tree and it didn't affect me at all. The price is also a good deal since the bottle is pretty large. It came with the sprayer separate and the bottle sealed so it wouldn't leak in the box. I highly recommend this." —Amber Erwin

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $13.04.

    8. A pack of storage bins for keeping the contents of your fridge and freezer more organized and easier to find. Every time you clean the inside, you promise to stay more organized next time around, and it just never happens. Not this time!

    Set includes two wide drawers (ideal for fruit, veggies, and other larger food items), two narrow drawers (ideal for snacks, condiments, and slimmer items), one can dispenser drawer (can hold up to 10 standard-sized cans, small-sizes food cans, juice boxes, and other drinks), and one egg drawers (can hold up to 14 eggs). These are BPA-free, and recommended to hand-wash with mild detergent and water.

    Promising review: "I liked the first one I bought so much, I bought another. It's nice to be able to find things in the refrigerator and be able to pull out the whole tray container to see what's in the back of the fridge. I don't know if this happens to you, but I find my way to the back every so often, and come to find out a jar in the back expired a year ago. Now I can see everything and use it. The only thing I didn't use were the egg containers, but a couple of friends were happy enough to take those off my hands." —BookBroke

    9. 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 the day you purchased them.

    For those who are fans of the Bar Keepers Friend Classic Cleanser and Polish, this delivers the same results, but in a pre-mixed formula to make for a quicker clean. It works well against rust stains, tarnish, mineral deposits, soap scum, and indoor and outdoor grime, and is especially good on the following surfaces: stainless steel, brass, bronze, copper alloys, aluminum, ceramic, porcelain, glass, Corian. Recommended to use in the kitchen (sinks, cookware, stove cooktops and exteriors, oven door windows, non-stone countertops, and plates to buff out knife marks), bathroom (sinks, bathtubs, showers, faucets, toilets, tile, and grout), and outdoors (rust stains, grills, vehicles, siding, and sporting equipment).

    Promising review: "I was so bummed when I scratched up my pretty white sink with pots and pans. I thought I'd need to have it replaced or try to sand it and refinish it somehow, but I bought this stuff as a last ditch effort to fix it myself. It takes some elbow grease to make them go away, the scratches don't just wipe off. But if you scrub at them for a few minutes they melt away pretty quickly. After two rounds my sink looks nearly brand-new again. It also worked on a few mineral stains in my bathtub that I thought were permanent after soft scrub failed to remove them. Again, a little of this stuff, the scrubby side of a blue sponge, a little bit of effort and they were gone!" —Dan Borden

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $13.80.

    10. A honeycomb drawer organizer so you can keep the inside of your drawers looking nice and tidy like the rest of your organized home.

    Promising review: "Best product I have bought yet! I even purchased three more for my hubby and his sock drawer. He saw how great mine looked and wanted to use it as well. I have never been organized before, and I love the fact I can SEE where everything is now! I don't have to dig to the bottom of the drawer to find things. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product!" —DaVincent

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    11. Melamine cleaning sponges — extra thick, but gentle sponges ready to tackle all sorts of surfaces in and around your home. They're described as "magic" for a reason.

    before: dirty door
    after: clean door

    All you gotta do is wet and swipe!

    Promising review: "I own a cleaning business and have spent a small fortune on the name brand. I clean everything from condo rentals to long term lease/residential rentals and I have had to clean unimaginable NASTY, I mean 'pics or it didn't happen' kind of nasty and these cut right through it. They work just as well as the name brand, if not better, and they seem to last a little longer!" —Keisha Marie

    Get a pack of 20 from Amazon for $11.95.

    12. An S-shaped hanger that'll provide the perfect solution for hanging up pants, jeans, and even accessories or linens! I personally find hanging jeans up side-by-side on separate hangers takes up quite a bit of space. Well...kiss those days goodbye!

    These durable, stainless-steel hangers can hold about five garments each!

    Promising review: "My closet was a disaster area. I couldn’t find my pants, shirts, really anything. I’m so glad I bought this. The three hangers hold 15 pairs of pants total — that’s a lot less hangers! I have more space now." —Amanda L.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    13. Or Wonder Hangers for grouping certain garments together, which in turn makes it easier to find that shirt you know you own but can't seem to find no matter how many times you look.

    It comes with 10 hangers that can hold five garments each, 10 if you double them up!

    Promising review: "I use these hangers for shirts and tees. They allow me to easily find any shirt in my closet and take up very little space compared to single shirts on single hangers. I can also group shirts together by style or color on a single swivel hanger. I am now able to hang additional items in my closet without crowding. I bought this in white and the edges are smooth." —CAGH

    Get a pack of 10 from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in three colors).

    14. A natural, all-purpose cleaner featuring a list of just five readable ingredients you'll be glad to use for all your cleaning needs. Plus, it'll leave your home smelling super yummy!

    Humble Suds / Etsy

    Humble Suds is a woman-owned Etsy shop based in Denver. They sell plant-based cleaning products boasting ingredient lists that never contain more than six ingredients.

    Promising review: "I got the tea tree oil and lavender cleaner and have had an easier time cleaning my kitchen than when I used chemical cleaners. Plus, I know it’s non-toxic, so I find myself cleaning far more frequently (I have asthma and this product doesn’t trigger an attack or take my breath away). My kitchen has never looked cleaner." —Jessica Mathisen

    Get it from Humble Suds on Etsy for $15.55.

    15. A pack of toilet tabs — simply drop one into the bowl (you only need one), let it dissolve, and give it a quick scrub with a brush. Plus, they come in a variety of awesome scents like lavender, peppermint, lemongrass, citrus, and more!

    Pardo Naturals is Black woman-owned, based in Covington, Georgia, and sells natural cleaning, body, and hair products, candles, and more!

    Promising review: "For all the folks who don't enjoy cleaning the toilet — myself included — these dissolving tablets make quick work of a grimy bowl. The tablets are a little hard to dislodge from the plastic container (although that does make me feel confident that they're secure during transit and won't break; mine all arrived intact!), but once you get one out, you drop it in the toilet and let it do its thing. It'll start fizzing — just like a bath bomb — loosening any stains and streaks in 10 minutes so they come away with a light brushing. I never let the toilet get too bad (and usually it takes awhile for me to notice any buildup since there are only two people in the apartment), so I can't vouch for them if you have really set-in hard water stains or haven't cleaned the commode in six months. But if you're looking to ditch the harsh cleansers in your toilet cleaning routine, this is a great addition to your lineup." —Melanie Aman, BuzzFeed Editor

    Get a pack of six from Pardo Naturals for $10.50 (available in seven scents).

    16. A makeup organizer that'll make for a great spot to store your cosmetics, skincare products, brushes, sponges, and more. Now you won't have to dig through a messy makeup pouch just to find the lipstick color you want.

    Promising review: "This nifty little organizer looks beautiful, can fit ALL of my everyday makeup, and (drumroll please) it keeps clutter at bay in my bathroom — which is extremely tiny, BTW. I can fit so 👏 damn 👏 much 👏 inside of this four-drawer thing. Here are all the products that I currently have in there: 32 lipsticks, six blushes and bronzers, two large highlighter sticks, one foundation bottle, three concealers, two contouring sticks, two rollerball perfumes, two primers, and the bottom drawer contains so many lip pencils, eyeliners, and eyeshadow sticks that I actually didn't even bother counting (but I'm going to guess AT LEAST 30 of them, I swear).* If you have A TON OF MAKEUP (which I do), then you may still have to store some extra stuff in your bags — but either way, this container holds SO much. But the real winner winner chicken dinner here? I have easy access to all the makeup I use every single day and can see all of it at once. I don't have to dig around the bottomless pit that is one of my many, many makeup bags anymore — I just have to open and close a drawer." —AnaMaria Glavan

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in four colors).

    17. A power scrubbing cleaning kit you can attach to your drill and get to work in making your living space look brand freakin' new.

    Comes with three different sizes and shapes of brushes. The bristles won't scratch and are good to use on tubs, sinks, baseboards, fiberglass shower enclosures, shower door tracks, and porcelain. BTW, the drill isn't included, but you can find a bunch of great ones on Amazon!

    Promising review: "I bought this on a whim because my walk-in shower is just a pain to clean. I'm 51 and I guess I've just been old school with how I clean, so I was hand scrubbing it for years. The FIRST time I used this to clean my shower, it took five minutes AND it scrubbed my shower cleaner than it has been in years. In the corners, the floor, the glass door, everything came out squeaky clean. I'm NEVER cleaning my shower by hand again." —Terry

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in six colors).

    18. A desktop organizer to finally give all of the items on your desk like books, folders, writing utensils, decorative pieces, and more a tidy storage spot. Plus, this is a piece of decor in its own right so it'll make your work space really pop.

    Promising review: "I needed some extra shelf space for my home office, especially now that we are working from home for the rest of the year. This was so, so simple to set up and holds everything I need without any issues. You can also assemble it as you please, which is a great feature!" —TanzA

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in four colors).

    19. An adjustable rack that'll help keep all of your under-the-sink items accessible and orderly.

    Has an expandable rail, and four adjustable height levels.

    Promising review: "I was super impressed with the quality of this item. It did not fit under my sink as I was hoping, but that was my fault as I didn’t measure before ordering. But what’s great about this item is that it is adjustable in many ways and I was still able to finagle it to meet my needs. You are able to adjust the height of the shelves to three different heights. And then it also adjusts in width to your precise needs. " —staceym

    Get it from Amazon for $22.87 (available in three finishes).

    20. A reusable duster you simply attach to your Swiffer cleaner. These are made with eight layers of non-fraying fabric that'll seamlessly absorb dust and they can be thrown in the washing machine after use.

    Get it from TS Designs on Etsy for $5.49 (available in 10 colors).

    21. A carpet cleaning solution for those whose home deserves a million-dollar-looking floor...for under $20 that is.

    Sunny & Honey is family-run and sells home cleaning products. This stuff both cleans AND deodorizes carpets.

    Promising review: "This works like a dream. I have light beige carpets, and this gets all the dirt and stains right out." —Karen M.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    22. A hard-water stain remover to clean stubborn bathroom messes and restore a multitude of your surfaces (ahem, like the shower door as seen below) to brand-new condition.

    Promising review: "When we moved into our new place the shower doors looked like they had never been cleaned before. I tried at least 10 different products and methods to remove the hard water spots but nothing even made a dent. Bio Clean, however, was like a magic eraser! I scrubbed each door for about 10 minutes and it was incredible! I’ve never written a cleaning product review before but this one is worth every penny." —Shane B

    Get it from Amazon for $18.76.

    23. Coffee mug organizers especially great for anyone with limited kitchen storage space. Now you can cut the amount of space your mugs take up in half and use that extra bit of room for additional drinkware, a cool kitchen gadget, or more snacks.

    Comes in a pack of six so you can organize 12 mugs!

    Promising review: "I love these cup organizers. I have a small cabinet above where my coffeepot is and these have made it a pleasure to open that cabinet. All cups are organized and easy to get to. They stay right where they should be. No more stacking them inside one another and them falling over when I opened the cabinet. I also use these for some bowls in my dish set. Works great. I just ordered a couple more and I am going to use them for my china cabinet. I wondered when I first bought them because the price was a little high. Worth every penny and more. I can not say enough good about these." —ChefGirl
