    3. Dishwasher cleaning tablets so the machine you rely on to clean the things you use to eat isn't gunking them up even more.

    amazon.com

    These tablets remove odor-causing residue and help get rid of lime and mineral build-up that naturally occurs inside dishwashers. The tablet is designed to last throughout the entire wash cycle, and is recommended for use about once a month. These are safe to use in stainless-steel tub and plastic tub dishwashers.

    Promising review: "After using this product, I am happy to report that my $5 investment saved me over $500. I was ready to replace my dishwasher due to super cloudy glasses, residue, and just not getting clean. Then, I became aware that the water softener no longer was doing its job, so I had the rental company replace it. Dishwasher performance improved somewhat. I decided to do two more loads before deciding to purchase a new one. Then I saw a product test review for Affresh in a magazine. I was ordering some stuff from Amazon anyway, so I added that to my order. When it came, I tossed one of the tablets into the bottom of the full machine, and ran the regular cycle. I did not expect the results I got! My glassware that I thought was permanently etched and ruined came out like new. Same with cutlery. The difference is unbelievable. I will use this faithfully on a monthly basis, as recommended. I can even put it on my subscribe and save order, so I will get a new pack every six months. I am amazed!" —Sheila

    4. An anti-fog spray perfect for those who are now all too familiar with the struggle of their glasses getting fogged up while wearing a mask.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this product because wearing a face mask makes my glasses fog, even with the metal strip to form around the bridge of my nose. It works all day with only one application, unless I have been doing a lot of activity, then I might have to re-apply. Just spray it on the clean lenses of your glasses then wipe dry with a clean dry lintless cloth, as simple as that. I was so impressed that I gave my second bottle to my team members for them to use. Delivery was fast. I highly recommend this product from this company. I would not hesitate to buy this again when I need more in the future." —Tonya Crippen

    Get it from Amazon for $10.55.

    5. An acupressure anti-nausea wristband that claims to ward off motion sickness and nausea, minus the drowsiness side effect found in most nausea medications.

    amazon.com

    These are designed to work by applying pressure to the P6 acupressure point on the wrist that claims to have been proven to relieve nausea and vomiting.

    Promising review: "I have bought this for the third time. Not only is it a great idea, I wear them 24 hours a day seven days a week. I suffer from extreme vertigo and having these on I have no vertigo whatsoever. They say not to wear them all the time, but I say if it works, do it!" —C51

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $8.53.

    6. Pull bars to give your cabinets and drawers a seriously sleek upgrade. Say goodbye to those retro handles and hello to these modern ones.

    Wayfair

    Promising review: "Very well-built, sturdy, and attractive. They completely turned my kitchen into a new kitchen! Why spend $6 a piece at the local hardware store when you can get this whole set? Highly recommend!" —Jennifer

    Get a pack of 10 from Wayfair for $14.24 (available in five finishes).

    7. Acne patches you can apply to areas where you're breaking out. Let it sit overnight or throughout the day, peel it off, and watch it take all the pore-clogging gunk with it.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    These patches contain hydrocolloid dressing with a hint of tea tree oil, calendula oil, and cica. The ingredients in this are gentle, ideal for all skin types and tones!

    Promising review: "I can't believe how much money I've spent on acne products over the years before I found this. Of all the products with glowing reviews, these patches have been the most effective and worth their cost. I have sensitive combo skin and deal with adult acne on a daily basis. Since my face has dry areas, I'm also more likely to pick at it (TMI, sorry). It's terribly embarrassing to go to work with these kinds of issues day after day, so in addition to taking a prescription, I've been on the hunt for anything topical that would help. The first time I used one of these patches, I put it on at night. The next morning, I woke up and was kind of shocked. It actually did what it was supposed to do. You peel off the patch, and with it comes at least 90% of the nastiness that was clogging your skin. It DRASTICALLY reduces the size of the zit. I've also experimented with using these on cystic acne, and they work wonders for speeding up the clearing and healing process. Also, they're comfortable to wear and stay on your face pretty well overnight!" —Greta H

    Get a pack of 40 from Amazon for $8.49.

    8. A car vent face mask holder to provide a more organized, cleaner space in your vehicle to keep masks. Whether it's a mask you're already wearing while running errands, or just keeping some extra masks on-hand, this baby will be super useful.

    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 $8.42.

    10. A PhoneSoap to clean all the yucky germs off your phone, because — news flash! — you bring your phone everywhere with you, so it's germ-y and deserves a good cleaning, OK?!

    The PhoneSoap in aqua
    @phonesoap / Via instagram.com

    We recently purchased a PhoneSoap for our house, and I have to say, it's really great! It's so easy to use! You just put in your phone, your keys, credit cards, cash, etc., closet the cover, and in about 10 minutes, it's clean! It's much easier and a lot less wasteful than having to wipe down everything with wipes. Plus, during this time of life, it gives extra peace of mind that things we touch and use regularly are sanitized after running out to do errands.

    Promising review: "What a perfect gadget for getting your phone clean. After touching who knows what while commuting to work, and it being that time of year everyone around you gets sick, this comes in handy. After the first use it looked great, and then I wiped it down with the sponge that came with it. I feel so much better about using my phone now." —Crystal Gardner

    Get it from Amazon for $73.62+ (available in six colors).

    11. Cleaning K-Cups for the easiest, fastest way to get your beloved Keurig in the clean condition it should always be in to brew your favorite hot beverage.

    amazon.com

    All you have to do is put one of these babies in like you would with any other K-Cup, brew one large cycle, watch dirty water get cleaned out, throw the pod away, and then return to brewing your favs.

    Promising review: "We’ve had our Keurig for a few years, and with the exception of using only filtered water and dispensing hot water every so often, we’ve never cleaned the needle or K-Cup area. I used three cleaning cups back to back and WOW our machine was dirty! I'm so happy I purchased these! I’ll be keeping up on cleaning these more often." —Heather Garcia

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $9.95.

    12. A Snuggle Puppy that's basically a miracle solution to helping ease your pup's loneliness and separation anxiety — it's especially perfect for those crate-training their furry bbs.

    Samantha Wieder / BuzzFeed

    Last year my family made the wonderful decision to get an adorable Havanese puppy named Bailey (pictured left). Bailey experienced some major separation anxiety in those first few days/nights and we knew for the sake of our sanity and sleep schedule that we had to find a solution. Enter: The Snuggle Puppy.

    It comes with a little red heartbeat ticker and heat packs (we actually didn't even use the heat packs), that you simply place into the middle of the dog, velcro it shut, and it's heartbeat helps to make your puppy feel less alone and simulate the feeling of cuddling up to their mom. I swear this thing must be made with pixie dust because within an hour of putting this in his crate, Bailey stopped crying and was fast asleep next to it. If you opt to get the kit (we did), it also comes with two toys and a fleece blanket.

    Bailey is a little over a year old now so he doesn't use the puppy for comfort like he did those first few weeks, but it's STILL his favorite toy. Seriously, he loves it so much that he is constantly attempting to see if he can pick it up and bring it with him outside when we go on walks. We got him another one for his birthday and he loves it just as much as he loves the first one. It's on the pricy side for a plush dog toy, but considering how much it helped save our sanity and how much Bailey still adores it, it's a million percent worth it. This is always at the top of the list of my recommendations for friends bringing home puppies because it's just that good.

    Get it from Amazon: the Snuggle Puppy for $38.64+ (available in five colors), or the Snuggle Puppy kit for $69.95.

    13. Peel-and-stick wallpaper available in a variety of colors and patterns perfect for livening up those boring white walls and making your bathroom feel brand new.

    Target

    Get it from Target for $34: the Threshold Herringbone Stripe peel-and-stick wallpaper here, the Opalhouse Scallops peel-and-stick wallpaper here, and be sure to check out all of the peel-and-stick wallpaper Target has to offer here.

    14. A wearable nail polish holder so you can easily give yourself a fresh mani anywhere at home, minus the risk of spilling. Suddenly painting my nails a dark color while sitting on a white couch feels like a beautiful possibility.

    Be sure to check out our write-up of the wonderful tweexy wearable nail polish holder!

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my life? Definitely helps with DIY nail projects. When I had no idea this polish holder existed, I tried to find creative ways to hold my polish, so that it would be in a convenient spot. However, I never found that really worked for me, or felt comfortable. This holder holds all of my nail polishes easily and is very comfortable to wear. I love that the finger holes on the bottom are not enclosed so you can just pull the holder off without ruining your paint job. Just one tip: move the holder to your pointer finger when doing your thumb." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 19 colors).

    15. Water bottle cleaning tablets for getting your beloved drinking bottle back to the condition it was in when you first fell in love with it. Not to mention the fact that you should only ever consume water from a CLEAN bottle.

    amazon.com

    Tablets are biodegradable, chlorine-free, all-natural, and environmentally safe. They're individually packaged, and don't require any additional brushing or scrubbing. Good for use on stainless-steel bottles, mugs, hydration reservoirs, coolers, dishes, and hard-to-clean plastic containers and bottles.

    Promising review: "In all fairness, I first heard of this product while watching Shark Tank, and their pitch was impressive so I gave the underdog a try. Now, I'm on my fourth re-order. My whole family drinks out of various name brand bottles, coffee mugs, etc. The fact is, they are rarely cleaned because they are a part of our daily lives and they are a pain in the ar$e to clean, because of the inconvenience that they are not dishwasher-safe, or don't fit. The answer is these tablets. They work and they're simple to use." —K.R.

    Get them from Amazon for $8/12 tablets.

    16. Blind-spot mirrors so you can spend less time perfecting your parallel park.

    Promising review: "I bought these for my mom's car and mine a while ago and these little things are great. Since I got my license I've hated merging or switching lanes; I never felt good or safe doing it. Since having these its been a blessing, I feel less like a scared new driver. I'm currently encouraging my sister and friends to invest in these too! These are also great for backing up, because you can see exactly how close you are to hitting the car behind, and it's helpful when I parallel park in the city." —Mariam Abass

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $7.97 (available in three shapes).

    17. A canvas drink holder perfect for carrying around boba tea, cold brew, iced tea, or any other chilled beverage. It'll keep your hands free from holding an icy cold cup; plus it looks super cool.

    Dreamy Daisy / Etsy

    Dreamy Daisy is an Etsy shop based in Washington D.C. that sells handmade organic canvas bags.

    Promising review: "These reusable drink holders are SO cute. They're high quality and the size is perfect. Also the packaging was very lux, so it’d make a great gift! When I asked a question, they responded the same day. Will definitely order from this company again!" —Kyra Middeleer

    Get it from Dreamy Daisy on Etsy for $15.99 (available in eight colors).

    18. A rapid egg cooker so you don't have to waste your precious time standing over the stove waiting for your eggs to finish cooking. I own this, and lemme tell ya, it's a pretty wonderful thing being able to watch Netflix and not keep a hawk-eye view on my omelet in the mornings.

    Samantha Wieder / BuzzFeed

    When I tell you that I think this is one of my all-time favorite purchases ever, I'm not EGGagerating.... but really, I'm not. I pretty much use this every single day. Let me start by saying that the pieces themselves were self-explanatory. I opened this when I was VERY hungry and therefore had no patience to read an instruction manual, and found it super quick to figure out what to do.

    It can boil up to six eggs at a time. It comes with a little measuring cup with a needle at one end that you simply pierce the larger top of the egg with, place the egg on one of the six slots of the tray with the pierced side facing up, fill the measuring cup to the soft, medium, or hard line depending on your preference, pour the water through center hole, cover the cooker, plug it in, and press the button. It makes a sound in the form of a pretty cute (and TBH, kinda catchy) song when it's ready, so you don't have to sit and wait around. This also comes with a poacher tray and an omelet tray that are just as easy to use! I've been on a kick with the omelet tray lately, because it's just a million times better than having to stand over the stove. Be sure to check out our write-up of this awesome egg cooker!

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

    19. A migraine stick to help stop painful migraines in their tracks. As a migraine sufferer myself, I know how difficult it is to accomplish anything when a migraine hits, and there just aren't enough hours in the day to waste them on nursing yourself back to a fully functioning human when you get one.

    Read our writeup of this miracle migraine stick!

    Promising review: "I have had tension and migraine headaches for around 20 years. I have tried everything. OTC medication, prescription medication, pain injections, chiropractor etc... This topical oil has given me relief for nearly six weeks now. I have only had two to three headaches in that time, and they were mild. I ordered more already 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 is phenomenal." —Mary D.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    20. The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% for a product that may just become your new favorite. (I, an acne-prone person, swear by my Niacinamide serum, but hey, that's just me). All you need are a few drops a day to help reduce the appearance of blemishes and congestion.

    The bottle of the serum — the serum itself is clear
    @deciem / Via instagram.com

    To use, apply a few drops of this to your entire face in the morning or evening before applying heavier creams. Note, that if topical vitamin C is part of your skincare routine, or will be part of it, it should be applied at alternate times with this serum in the a.m. It's free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.

    Promising review: "THE BEST! I know its not for everyone based off the reviews, but this stuff is amazing for me. I have an oily T-zone and bumps on my forehead that never go away, and a week into using this my forehead is wayyy less red and the majority of the bumps have gone away! I think my skin purged as I had a lot of whiteheads around day three to four, and now after a week they are all gone, so push through. This stuff is great and the price is amazing." —Emily2899

    Get it from Sephora for $5.90+ (available in two sizes).

    amazon.com

    It's recommended to change the spikes every 30 days during the spring and summer months!

    Promising review: "I have several houseplants that had stopped flowering, so I put a few of these spikes in the pot (there are directions on the back of package for quantity), and approximately a month after using these spikes, my peace lily had three flowers on it, and my African violets plants all got several blooms on them! This worked wonders for my plants that don't flower also! I noticed that my ivy and cactus plants started growing faster, and they became more green and healthy looking. I am very happy with this product, and I will buy it again." —Elizabeth

    Get a pack of 24 from Amazon for $2.79.

    23. A false-eyelash applicator that'll make the way-more-difficult-than-it-needs-to-be-task of applying falsies much quicker and easier than just using your fingers.
