    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

    2. 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 10 colors).

    3. An eyebrow razor that'll make it super simple to clean up your eyebrows yourself. Plus, it's way less painful than waxing and threading!

    two packs of three razors in different colors
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I generally don't go to salons for my eyebrows and also don't trust myself with anything that has the word 'wax' and 'at-home' in the product description, so these have been a godsend. I use them for my brows and they're not only super quick and effective, but I've personally never dealt with razor burn or any other kind of reaction you might get from shaving an unusual part of your human face. A lot of reviewers also mention using them for dermaplaning." —Emma Lord, BuzzFeed Editor

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $4.90.

    4. A reusable duster you can 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. 

    various colors of the reusable dusters
    TS Designs / Etsy

    Get it from TS Designs on Etsy for $5 (available in 10 colors).

    5. Water bottle cleaning tablets to get your drinking bottle back to the condition it was in when you first fell in love with it at the store. Not to mention, 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: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. A bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. 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 pack of 12 tablets from Amazon for $8.

    6. 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

    7. A grout pen that will 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.

    The pen is ideal for use on floors and walls!

    Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised by how far these went. I did the entire floor of my large master bathroom plus a little of the shower with one pen. It is pretty forgiving and you have quite a bit of working time before it dries completely. This was not a quick task, but it went faster than I thought it would. I was worried the white would look too bright, but it just makes everything look so much cleaner. I'm very happy with this product!" —Jenelle

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in two sizes).

    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.

    ArchersDesignShop / Etsy

    ArchersDesignShop is a small business based in Indianapolis, IN that sells 3D-printed goods for your car so that belongings like face masks and sunglasses are in a tidy area, rather than strewn on the seats, floors, or worse... in hard-to-reach areas.

    Promising review: "These clips work so well! It was getting frustrating having no place to put my mask while traveling without putting it on the floor and getting it dirty! This shop is so amazing — they threw in extra clips and I can't wait to share with friends!" —Sam Fuentes

    Get it from ArchersDesignShop on Etsy for $4.50 (available in four colors).

    9. Soundproof door strips for those whose bedroom currently doubles as a home office, and their "co-workers" (aka roomies, family members, and pets) are kinda noisy. These also help prevent cold air from escaping in the summer, and warmth from escaping in the winter, so you can save energy, too!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Product works really well! I needed a quick fix to my home office situation. I live in an apartment in Manhattan and never noticed how much sound comes in and out, until I had to be on conference calls working from home! This little tape made a big difference, took me a couple of minutes to install." —Sandra Revueltas

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $7.97 (available in four colors).

    10. An all-natural dry shampoo that's scented with lavender oil, so we won't tell anyone it's been days upon days since you last washed your hair, if you don't. Deal?

    amazon.com

    This is vegan, cruelty-free, and eco-friendly. It doesn't contain talc, parabens, baking soda, phtalates, or aerosol. To use, lightly dispense the powder from the bottle onto your hair roots and gently rub in using a clean brush or clean fingers, let it sit, and then do it again.

    Promising review: "It makes my bangs and roots look fresh again. And I love that this is a powder and not a stinky aerosol spray. That also means that this lasts MUCH longer. I use it every other day when I don't wash my hair since I have very oily roots. I've been using it for almost a month and barely any is missing out of the bottle. A little goes a long way." —Rachel G.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    11. 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.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Love this — absolutely perfect for touchin' up little spots that need touchin' up. I have several sets filled with different paints and so far they've stayed usable, without the paint drying out. I rinse the brush really well after each use (latex paints) and recap it. It would be nice if the manufacturer put an area on the pen where you could easily label the paint info, but I use a permanent marker, and it works okay." —Hooked on Amazon!

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $9.99.

    12. A car dip clip that'll allow you to safely dip your nugs and fries in your favorite sauces as you drive.

    Promising review: "My husband rolled his eyes at me that I bought it, but I have no regrets! Never again will I spill sauce on myself in the car. Has an even nicer cleaner look than the picture in my opinion." —MaisonElaine98

    Get it from 3DPrintedByBrian on Etsy for $5.52+ (available in single or double dipper options, and two colors).

    13. Anti-slip silicone glasses sleeves to keep your eyewear where it belongs, ya know, on your face, and NOT slipping and sliding down to the floor and risking getting broken AGAIN.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I was a little dubious about these, but my daughter's glasses were always falling off her face and to the floor, so if I could spend a couple of bucks to save her expensive glasses, it was worth a shot. In fact, because you get five pairs, I put a set on my glasses, and I'll be darned if they don't work really well. They add a little bit of bulk to your glasses so if you're extremely fashion-conscious, it's not like tape-on-the-bridge nerdy, but it's there. But if you're more concerned about having your glasses feel like they're going to stay put on your head, then you'll like these. They aren't too thick so you don't really notice them on your ears. In fact, because of the soft silicone, they actually result in less of the occasional soreness I would get from my glasses on my ears sometimes." —Domenico Bettinelli

    Get a pack of five pairs (10 total) from Amazon for $6.99 (available in three colors).

    14. Ceiling fan pull chains so the next time you wake up all sweaty at 3 a.m. in dire need of a nice breeze, you can do just that without accidentally turning the lights on.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Absolutely adorable! They add panache to the fan, and you never have to worry about which pull to choose. The set also makes it easier for me to reach them. They do not get in the way and are a sturdy fit into the original chain. Would highly recommend to anyone." —Scholar Mama

    Get them from Amazon for $6.75+ (available in two finishes).

    15. An internet address and password logbook to help keep track of your important log-in info for social media, online banking, school portals, and more. Sorry but yourname123 isn't a good password, no matter how easy it is to remember.

    On the left, the cover of the password book, and on the right, the inside of the book
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "When we have so many internet addresses and passwords to remember, it gets really hard — especially when you get older and have trouble remembering what silly password you gave something. And, we are supposed to change or update passwords from time to time, so this is a great tool to help us do that. It certainly makes more sense than scribbling on a random piece of paper on your desk and then misplacing it. The trick, however, is to not misplace the book! I HIGHLY recommend this!!" —Carole P

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95.

    16. A leather cable organizer that's chic and pretty, but best of all? Very useful. Say goodbye to a messy tangle of wires and hello to organization.

    Promising review: "These are great, they're exactly as pictured and do exactly what I need them to do — keep my cords together and keep everything neat! I was surprised to find that they even threw a couple in for free! I really appreciate it because I ended up being able to use the extras. Would highly recommend this shop to anyone/everyone." —Shawna

    Get it from Darrell Standing on Etsy for $3.90 (available in 12 colors).

    17. A universal cleaning gel perfect for getting rid of dust, hairs, crumbs, and more from things like technology items and your car. It's like playing with slime WHILE cleaning, so it's a win/win.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I purchased this product to clean those little spaces in my car filled with random crumbs from my husband and dog hair, and it works amazingly. Picked up everything and didn’t leave a residue. The lemon scent was faint and didn’t overpower the vehicle while I was cleaning it. But this definitely got in all the little nooks and crannies." —Kimberly

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    18. Window screen repair tape that only takes about 30 seconds to apply, is super strong and durable, and will be a heck of a lot cheaper than having to replace an entire screen.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Holy cow! This stuff WORKS! I had been using regular packing tape to patch up my screen door that was riddled with holes and tears, but those mosquitoes were making their way in, and it looked terrible. I picked up a roll of this just to check it out, and man, the repair is practically like I installed a new screen! I thought it was going to be tape with the net pattern printed on it, but IT'S REAL NETTING with adhesive on one side, so it really is a solid repair! Highly recommend!" —SteveBFX

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

    19. Divider sticky notes to ease the task of writing down important meeting notes and to-do lists so it all feels less overwhelming.

    Amazon

    These dividers use water-based, not chemical-based adhesive.

    Promising review: "These babies are pretty sturdy and they make putting notes in a book, planner, magazine, or whatever, a complete breeze. I really like the ease of these and if you are creative you can make these work for any project. I use them in my textbooks to summarize my notes on a chapter. I also have short-term memory loss after a car accident, and I like reading novels, but can't remember things, so I use one of these as a bookmark, and take a few minutes to jot down key things from the book. I really, really, really like these and I am glad they exist." —Delaney

    Get a pack of 60 from Amazon for $8.39.

    20. Dishwasher and laundry detergent pods that are biodegradable and made with natural, plant-derived ingredients so you can say goodbye to the days of measuring out the right amount of chemical-ridden liquid detergents.

    22. Houseplant insect traps that will be as easy peasy as popping them into the soil of your houseplants. They work like magnets to catch little buggies who dare to mess with your plant babies.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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 re-potted 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

    23. A pet hair remover glove to make brushing your dog's hair easier for both of you. They'll love how it feels against their skin, and you'll love that they're happy!

    BuzzFeed Editor AnaMaria Glavan after brushing her dog with the glove
    AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "My dog is perfect in every way but he has recently started to shed and I am finding that all my clothes are covered in his fur. (According to his vet, it’s common for Frenchies to go through more shedding in the fall and spring to make way for a new ~seasonally-appropriate~ coat.) I had seen this pet grooming glove all over the internet, so I figured I’d give it a try. And boy oh good boy, it genuinely works. The glove is super comfortable and using it couldn’t be more foolproof: just put it on and run your hands through your pet’s fur. That’s it! The silicone grooves pick up so much fur with ease. Like, my dog looks close to hairless. HOW is he shedding so much!?!? After a few runs, I found that I would have to remove fur from the glove before continuing (you can pick up the fur with your other hand or run the glove under some water — either works) but it’s no biggie. The silicone actually makes it really easy to keep this clean.

    We got Rockie when he was 5 and he’d been riddled with skin issues and allergies, so I was pretty nervous to use anything that could potentially aggravate his conditions. However! Not only does this *not* bother his skin, but he….loves this. A lot. He starts snoring after exactly two run-throughs on his back. Also, his coat looks SO shiny after each use! TL;DR: This is one of those inexpensive add-ons that any pet owner should have on hand." —AnaMaria Glavan, BuzzFeed Editor

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in three styles).

    24. 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.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Very easy to use and affordable. I was able to put on my lashes in no time. I can't believe I use to apply my lashes without this amazing tool. I place my lashes directly in the center and adjust the ends. My lashes go on in one minute less with this tool." —CITY Beauty

    Get it from Amazon for $4.98 (available in three colors).

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

    Amazon

    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).

    26. A 3-in-1 avocado slicer to help you slice, pit, and scoop nature's butter in a pinch.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Features a soft, comfy nonslip grip. This is dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "I used to laugh at this kind of product until my friend was using hers. It made it all so easy! Honestly, I can't believe someone as clumsy as me was functioning without it. Where I used to use a knife and spoon or fork to deal with avocados, it's now just this one thing. Each part of the tool does its job really well, and it's easy to clean. Love it so much. Even if you're not a clever tool kinda person, just get it. It's worth it." —kikikitten

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    27. Plant food spikes that'll keep your plants fed for up to two months!

    Amazon, 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 them from Amazon for $2.79/24 spikes, or $7.44/48 spikes.
