    34 Products That Seem Like They Were Specifically Invented For Busy People

    We can't get more hours in the day, so these products will have to suffice.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI โ€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A 40-pack of 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.,

    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!" โ€”Greta H

    2. A six-pack of dishwasher cleaning tablets that'll do the job of cleaning your dishwasher FOR YOU. Just pop a tablet into the machine, run a cycle, and voila!

    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, per instructions, 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!" โ€”Sheila

    Get them from Amazon for $4.44.

    3. And on that same note, you may also wanna get a six-pack of washing machine cleaning tablets that do the same thing the tablets above do, except for your washing machine, of course!

    These are safe to use with front-load washing machines and top-load washing machines, and both high efficiency and conventional machines. Recommended to use once a month!

    Promising review: "I have been using bleach to clean my machine for some time, but decided to give this a try a few months ago. My very first clean with Affresh left me surprised and delighted, for not only did it clean my machine, it eliminated the nasty smell that always transferred to my clothes thanks to a build-up of mold I didn't even know about. Every month now, I toss a tablet into the drum and let it work its magic. Now, my machine is cleaner than ever, and my clothes always smell wonderfully fresh. I highly recommend this to everyone." โ€”Kelli Crawford

    Get them from Amazon for $11.99 (originally $13.98).

    4. 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?

    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." โ€”Rachel G.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    5. Water bottle cleaning tablets to get your beloved drinking vessel back to the condition it was in when you first fell in love with it at the store. I, for one, don't feel like taking a brush and soap and scrubbing away, and I'm going to make a fair assumption that you don't want to either.

    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 โ€” 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." โ€”Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $7.02.

    6. A rapid egg cooker for preparing a wide variety of eggs โ€” hard-boiled, poached, scrambled, and omelets โ€” how EGGciting!!! I own this lovely little machine, spend a total of four hours a day commuting to/from work, and this seriously is a life-saver when it comes to prepping a quick, protein-rich brekkie.


    Features an auto-shutoff function! It can boil up to six eggs at a time, poach up to two eggs at a time, or make an omelet! Includes a poaching tray, and omelet tray, a six-egg holder tray, a measuring cup, a recipe book, and access to a recipe database. All non-electric parts are dishwasher-safe! And be sure to check out our write-up of this awesome egg cooker!

    Promising review: "I don't like watching my pot to find out when the water starts boiling, so I bought this. It delivers perfect eggs by steaming them until the water placed in the device has evaporated. The exact amount of water is added to the cooker before it steams the eggs โ€” there is a measuring line on the plastic cup that comes with the device. Next to each measuring line are the following words: 'hard boiled, soft boiled, poached, etc.' Fill the cup with water to the line for the egg type you want, and then add the water to the device. Then simply puncture each egg with a spike that is attached to the measuring cup, place the eggs in the device with the hole on top (duh). You close it, press the button on front and walk away. When an alarm sounds, it turns off automatically. Your eggs are done. No need to watch water boil. No need for daily cleaning. It's quite small. Love this thing. For the price, what's not to like?" โ€”SunscreenAl

    Get it from Amazon for $18.56 (available in five colors).

    7. A 60-pack of divider sticky notes to make the task of writing down important lessons and assignments in class or work simple for even the messiest of note-takers and busiest of students.


    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." โ€”Delaney

    Get them from Amazon for $3.24 (originally $11.48).

    8. A blow dry accelerator spray that'll ACTUALLY help reduce drying time. Who wants to have to sit around and wait for their hair to dry just so they can continue styling it? Not me! Who wants to have to sit around and wait for their hair to dry just so they can walk outside the house without their mother telling them the old folklore that they'll get sick with a wet head? Again, NOT ME!

    @nymbrands / Via

    Promising review: "I blow dry and flat iron my hair every day. Typically it takes 35-45 minutes to get my hair dry. I came across this product by accident at CVS, so I decided to give it a try. My hair goes from dripping wet to bone dry in 10 minutes FLAT. This stuff is a lifesaver. I did not get compensated to say this. No free anything. I just want people who spend five or six hours a week under a blow dryer to know there's a better way!!" โ€”CLL1979

    Get it from Amazon for $4.87.

    9. A temperature-controlled mug for brewing coffee/boiling tea on-the-go, AND also keeping your hot drinks at your desired temperature alllllll day long so you don't have to waste time re-heating!


    The battery inside the mug is meant to last all day, but can be plugged in to charge! It includes the rechargeable battery and portable charging base. You can choose any temperature between room temp and boiling, and you can download a free app to control your mug's temperature right from your phone! It also has one-touch options for tasks like brewing green tea and cooking freeze-dried food.

    Promising review: "I usually only write reviews on products that don't work or if they are built cheap. NOT the case with my Cauldryn โ€” I had a feeling I was going to like it as soon as I saw the box that had all of the features listed on it. Once I used it, I knew I made a great choice. I'm using it for hot coffee, warm soup, and cold iced tea. Can't wait to take hot chocolate to football games this fall. They even printed the instructions in large type, so I don't need my reading glasses. I'm buying one for my daughter before she permanently borrows mine!" โ€”Curtis Underwood

    Get it from Amazon for $129.95.

    10. And if you're looking for some good coffee to brew inside your fancy schmancy mug, a bag of Death Wish coffee to fulfill your need for caffeine faster than regular coffee can. If you usually rely on multiple cups a day, this can get the job done in a cup or two.


    Read our write-up of this super strong coffee.

    Promising review: "Ok folks, words of warning, ration out your coffee. If you drink a 24 oz. Starbucks, you need an 8 oz. of this as your FIRST cup. I'm serious here, heed my warning or you could end up cleaning your entire house, doing all your yard work, making love to your partner, waxing your car, building a garage, or single-handedly raising the Titanic on your own, all in the first hour after drinking this wonderful coffee. You have been warned." โ€”ItsTheXFactor

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    11. A 20-pack of lifting pads you can just press down into rug stains โ€” ya know, things from pets, spilled drinks, blood, dirt, and more โ€” keep it there for up to 24 hours, and say adios stains!

    Promising review: "These things are AMAZING. They are magical. If you have a pet that has accidents in the house, these are a MUST HAVE. After your pet has an accident, all you need to do is open up the packet, place the pad on the accident spot, and then step on the pad to release the magic formula. Leave it there for at least a half an hour or up to 24 hours. Why the discrepancy, you might be asking? Because these pads work on DRIED STAINS. Holla!!!! My puppy has been driving me bonkers with accidents in the house, but I don't sweat it anymore thanks to these pads. They are seriously miracle workers and I will always have a supply of them in my house going forward." โ€”Lisa Koivu

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99.

    12. A essential oil migraine stick to help stop migraines on the path to destruction. Being a busy person sometimes means being more prone to migraines, but us busy people know, we simply don't have enough hours in the day to let migraines interfere with our schedules.

    Read our write-up 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." โ€”Mary D.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    13. An iRobot Roomba so you can delegate vacuuming your own floors to the robot while crossing other, more important things, off of your to-do list.


    Vacuum uses iAdapt 2.0 Navigation and vSLAM technology so the robot can map its surroundings around your home. It has a three-stage cleaning system that loosens, lifts, and suctions dirt, dust, and pet hair. It can clean under beds, sofas, and a variety of hard-to-reach areas. Its high-efficiency filter can catch about 99% of allergens, pollen, and dust. This vacuum can connect to Wi-Fi, and works well on both carpets and hard floors.

    Promising review: "We ran this for the first time today. It really knows where it is. Covered our upstairs pretty thoroughly. It took a while to navigate around the dining room chairs. I will lift them up on the table next run and the process will be faster. It went under living room chairs and under our bed. It had to return back to home base to recharge about 3/4 of the way through. Never got lost, or caught on anything. The app is great, and it stayed in communication with our Wi-Fi just fine. We may buy another for our finished basement. Yes, we are really lazy." โ€”Sandy Elliott

    Get it from Amazon for $499 (originally $699).

    14. A 24-pack of blackhead removal strips you apply to your face once a week, let sit for about 10 minutes or so, and peel off. Then you can bask in some yucky satisfaction.,

    This is suitable for all skin-types and has been dermatologist-tested, is hypo-allergenic, oil-free, vegan, and cruelty-free!

    Promising review: "Want to feel disgusting about your previous self from five minutes ago and better about your health for the next couple of weeks? Wet down your schnoz and toss one of these babies on there. It will transform from malleable and comfortable to a stiff sticky pad on your face. After your five minutes of waiting is up and you are ready to see what disgusting things have been cratered in your nose, pull this baby off. Nice and slow, from one side to the other. Feel the rush of excitement as your nose has its blackheads ripped from their pores and you feel cleaner than you do after a shower. Then, flip it over and inspect it closely to see how many nasty blackheads were previously calling your nose home. Take a pic or show to a friend, preferably both. Then crumple it up and throw it away and begin the countdown until the next extraction." โ€”r0bdawg11

    Get them from Amazon for $13.99.

    15. A non-stick sectioned skillet for making all the different components of your meal in one convenient place, all on the same stove burner. My apologies to all of your other pans now feeling left out and under appreciated.


    Features five compartments. It only requires one burner, and it's non-stick and stain-resistant. Plus, it features double layer non-stick coating that is PFOA-free. It's both oven- and dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "Now that I have cooked a few meals with this pan, I can honestly say that I will no longer be needing all my other pans. It just does it all. Cooking multiple ingredients at the same time and then infusing them together to mix the flavors is something that I have never been able to do before. Keep the pan at a medium heat to always get the best cook, because foods cook differently, and you can take your time in preparing your meal. I recommend this to pretty much anyone that likes to cook and mostly to the ones that dread it!" โ€”Dan S

    Get it from Amazon for $46.76.

    16. A two-pack of teeth-whitening pens to literally brighten up your teeth in a matter of minutes. It's recommended to avoid eating or drinking 30 minutes after, but other than that, you can go on living your busy life as soon as you're done using the pen.


    It can literally get your teeth four to eight times brighter! Each pen is good for 20 uses!

    Promising review: "This the best whitening product I have used. It takes about two minutes total. Brush, floss, wipe dry, and apply. Easy! There is no tooth sensitivity, no bad taste, no light you have keep in your mouth for five minutes, and no having to keep your mouth open until it dries. Will definitely be ordering more!" โ€”Christine Thexton

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99.

    17. A ginger sugar overnight lip mask โ€“ it'll have you going to bed with chapped lips and waking up in the morning with them feeling softer than ever.

    Contains ingredients like shea butter, beeswax, and murumuru butter to moisturize and smooth lips.

    Promising review: โ€œIโ€™ve gone through so many brands trying to find the 'ONE.' I don't remember how I found this but decided to try it and love it! I put it on before bed and wake up with moisturized lips. I put it on before heading to the gym and it withstands my mouth breathing heavily and I donโ€™t have to reapply!" โ€”MustLoveDogs

    Get it from Amazon for $7.58.

    18. A winged eyeliner stamp so you don't have to waste time during your makeup routine trying to nail the perfect cat eye. Just stamp it on and go, go, gooooo!

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Read a BuzzFeeder's experience with this fabulous winged eyeliner stamp (#3).

    Promising review: "I just want to make my morning routine as easy as possible. I love winged liner, but I donโ€™t have the steady hand for it without mistakes. This makes the perfect and consistent wing every time. Love it!." โ€”Julie B

    Get it from Amazon for $13.97.

    19. A vegetable chopper for those who wanna cook homemade meals, but are so daunted by the thought of having to spend time chopping and prepping their ingredients, they're ordering Seamless for the fourth night in a row.


    It holds up to 4 cups at a time! Includes stainless steel discs, a cleaning brush, and a recipe e-book for inspo! This is FDA-certified, BPA-free, and all parts are dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "I have been using the regular onion chopper and I always break them. I found that the design for this new chopper concentrates weight and pressure to prevent cracking. It looks stronger and I like that it has different types of knives. Personally, I can not live without a chopper because I love preparing ceviche and I refuse to spend hours cutting vegetables. Yesterday I even cut an apple and my daughter was happy to eat it (usually it takes a lot to make her eat fruits). My rating is 5 stars." โ€”e. baron

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99.

    20. A snow/ice windshield cover to cut-back on time you personally have to spend in the freezing cold, de-frosting and scraping your front window.

    This can also be used in the summer as it's resistant to UV rays, so it'll prevent the inside of your car from getting too overheated! Skin burns from car seats? No bueno.

    Promising review: "I bought two of these, one for me and one for my boyfriend. They are excellent!!! They are easy to put on, secure inside the car so it can't be stolen, and keep the frost and snow off my windshield. They are a waterproof material so the snow just slides off, and I'm not getting the inside of the car wet. Magnets on the edges help keep it secure to the car, and not flapping in the breeze. I highly recommend this cover." โ€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    21. A quick-dry top coat, because let's be real people, the absolute WORST part of getting your nails done/doing your own nails is shaving time off your precious day to wait for them to DRY. On average, reviewers claim this stuff helped get their nails dry in 10 minutes!!!


    Promising review: "This top coat is the BEST. I change my nail polish frequently because I love to do nail art. This is super durable, beautifully glossy, and dries way fast. I'm a 42-year-old with the patience level of a 5-year-old. This stuff dries before I get bored with sitting still. I recommend the same ventilation you'd use when applying any other nail polish. I just bought a 4 oz. refill bottle since I love this stuff SO much!! I HIGHLY recommend this top coat. You'll love it!" โ€”Letty

    Get it from Amazon for $4.79.

    22. A 10-pack of boot wipes to simply wipe away dirt and salt stains from your shoes to cut back on time you'd spend getting into your car, driving to the shoemaker, waiting DAYS for them to be ready, then having to make another trip back to the shoemaker to pick them up. No, thank you!


    It works well when cleaning leather, suede, rubber, and fabric. It's also good for more than just boots: You can use it to clean jackets, bags, car seats, and more! Plus, they come individually wrapped, so you can bring them on-the-go!

    Promising review: "Worked perfectly on black suede booties. Splattered some creamy soup on them two months ago. Couldn't find anything that removed the stain. Tried these wipes as a last ditch effort. I can't believe it, they look brand new!! Stains came right out with very little effort." โ€”AAD

    Get them from Amazon for $8.19.

    23. An Instant Pot that just might become your new go-to kitchen gadget โ€” this thing is a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, warmer, and sautรฉ-r all in one, so it's here to make your hectic life feel a lot less hectic.


    It can prepare food up to 70% faster than other methods. It can keep food warm automatically for up to 10 hours, and there are three temperatures for sautรฉing and slow-cooking. The inner cooking pot, lid, and steam-rack are dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "This is probably the only kitchen appliance I've ever bought that has earned permanent status on my kitchen counter. I use it at least three times a week. It's particularly perfect for vegans and WFPB-eaters. I can cook beans and grains from scratch in no time! Such a wonderful investment. I liked it so much that I got one for each of my sisters for the holidays. Best. Thing. Ever." โ€”cynthia w. rogers

    Get it from Amazon for $56.27/3 qt., $49/6 qt., or $79/8 qt.

    Taylor Miller / BuzzFeed

    Literally all you need to do is wet the cloth with water โ€” that's it. No chemicals, nothing yucky, just a cloth and water. Actual magic. BTW, this was our $$ pick for the best makeup removers on BuzzFeed Reviews. Check out our review of this incredible makeup eraser!

    Promising review: "I purchased this based on positive reviews and now know that they didn't even touch how amazing this product is. I was tired of using mascara removers and washing my face and still having makeup on. Well, that problem is now gone. This product seriously does what it says โ€” it erases makeup! I could not believe the way it removed my makeup the first time I used it! I use it for a week, toss it in the wash, and use it again. I was wondering how it would clean up in the laundry, and it always looks brand new. I no longer have to use chemicals to remove my makeup!" โ€”StaceyB

    Get it from Amazon for $20.

    25. A pill keeper that'll make managing your pills easier than constantly having to set alarms on your phone. Just separate them by day and times of day, and carry your portable pill plate around.


    Includes seven portable trays โ€” one for each day of the week, divided into four sections: morning, noon, evening, and bedtime.

    Promising review: "This pill box is exactly what I was looking for. I take several medications a day and this helps keep me organized and makes it very easy to see whether I remembered to take them or not. I also love that if I go away for a weekend, it is very convenient to take the pill boxes for the days that you will be gone." โ€”Tabatha Cumer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.38.

    26. A TubShroom to collect your hair while in the shower/bath, so you don't have to worry about your drains getting clogged up and creating more work for yourself

    This fits any standard 1.5 inch tub drain or bathroom sink drain. But, if you want to keep your hair catching separate between your tub and sink, then treat yourself and your home to the SinkShroom!

    Promising review: "This is absolutely worth every penny. Kudos to the inventor of this product. I have thick long dark hair, and after two months of moving into my own apartment, my shower drain was completely clogged with all my hair. After being disgusted at the amount of hair I had to clean out with a snake (which is NOT a fun task), I decided I needed to purchase something to prevent it from happening again. I read about this product on a BuzzFeed article, and I have no regrets. It is so satisfying to clean out, and it does not lie when it says it catches every single hair. I have had it for close to 4 months without once instance of my shower drain backing up. This product is absolutely worth it." โ€”Jess

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95+ (available in five colors).

    27. A dual breakfast sandwich maker to ensure you can start your day in the most delicious way without having to wake up earlier to head to McDonald's.

Comes with some recipes for inspo, and PSA: If using meat, it must be pre-cooked. Read our write-up of this cool breakfast sandwich maker!

    Promising review: "I'm gadget-crazy and bought this on a whim, and I'm pretty impressed. I used Pam spray, English muffins, ham, cheese, and an egg. I heated it up a little past the recommended time, set a timer for five minutes, used tongs to lift up the compartments and whaddya know! A perfect, cute little sandwich! I pulled it out with a plastic spatula and set it on a tiny cookie rack to cool so the bottom wouldn't get soggy. Nothing leaked, nothing stuck. Very compact and tidy. Let the contraption cool, then rinse and wipe." โ€”Amazoniac

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99/single, or $39.99/double.

    28. A fabric protection spray that'll actually repel spills so when you or your loved ones make a mess, you don't have to waste precious time doing everything you can to get rid of stains.


    Promising review: "I got this for my pillows. Having a 4-year-old and a 7-year-old who are constantly making messes in the living room, I was a bit fed up with replacing my pillows due to stains. The spraying was easy and quick, then I left them outside to air out. Today I noticed a big splatter of dried up ketchup on the pillow. I took a wet paper towel and rubbed off the stain. It came off completely! Nothing seeped through the fabric. I just wish I used this sooner!" โ€”Lidia

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98 (originally $14.99).

    29. A watermelon sleep mask so you can moisturize, smooth, and rejuvenate your skin all while getting your ZZZs in โ€” now if only we could figure out how to get our laundry and food shopping done in our sleep.

    Get it from Sephora for $22/mini size, or $45/standard size.

    30. A jewelry cleaning machine that'll make your possessions look like they're a worth a million bucks all over again, just like they deserve. No trips to the jeweler needed.,

    This machine is good for cleaning jewelry, glasses, watches, hygiene items, stationary, silver items with dirt accumulation, and other items like coins, keychains, kitchen utensils, and more! They recommend not using it to clean glasses and sunglasses with pre-existing scratches and cracks in the coating, tarnished silver items, and jewelry containing loose stones or soft/porous stones (ex: pearls, emeralds, amber, and opal). The machine has a three minute cleaning cycle and an auto shut-off feature!

    Promising review: "I ordered this product based on the great reviews and I was not disappointed. My ring center stone is a white sapphire and gets dirty extremely quickly. I've tried different cleaners and even taking it to mall jewelers, but they could never get it as clean as the jeweler we bought it from, (that's over an hour and a half away). Because of this, my ring would get so dirty to the point of not even wanting to show it off. This little guy, with some Blitz Gem and Jewelry Cleaner, made a HUGE difference. I ran it a handful of times because of how dirty it was and can't believe how shiny it is now. Very pleased with this purchase!" โ€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    31. A makeup remover pen for those mornings when smudges are just bound to happen, but you don't wanna deal with taking out your ACTUAL makeup remover and maneuvering it around that tiny little mistake.

    This works on most fabrics, and recommended to pre-test on delicate fabrics. Doesn't work on silk! These hold securely through cold water wash and low temp dry cycles!

    Promising review: "I'm short and I like to shop secondhand which means all of my pants have to be hemmed. I don't sew very well by hand or by machine, so these save me so much time. I wash my pants in cold water, only so the hem tape really lasts for me. I will keep buying them. Just keep a spray bottle of water around when you apply them, and keep your fingertips wet because these are really sticky!" โ€”A. M.

    33. A two-pack of blind spot mirrors so you can spend less time perfecting your parallel park and more time getting out of your car and doing the darn thing you came TO DO.


    Promising review: "I bought these for mine and my mom's car a while back 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." โ€”Mariam Abass
