    1. Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser – a conditioning face wash that'll feel nice and gentle on ultra-sensitive skin, but contains the same cleaning agents found in contact lens solution so it's powerful in its abilities.

    Ayseha Mittal / BuzzFeed, Glossier

    This can either be used on dry skin to help dissolve makeup, or on wet skin to start your day. It's made of five skin conditioners to help leave your face feeling soft. It's hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested, ophthalmologist-tested, claims to be good for all skin types, noncomedogenic, cruelty-free, vegan, and soap-, paraben-, and sulfate-free. Check out our review of the amazing Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser (#2).

    I have extremely sensitive skin, and back in fall 2019 I experienced a sudden onset of cystic acne all over my face, went on birth control for it in December, and now six months later, my skin is completely clear and I'm finally wanting to try all of these skincare products I was too scared to use. As someone who was using Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser for YEARS, I was nervous to make the switch to Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser, and full expected I'd try it once and have to retire it.

    Quite the opposite actually. This cleanser is truly SO gentle. Rather than leaving my skin feeling hot and irritated like some skincare products do, this leaves my skin with a cooling sensation and I actually really look forward to washing my face in the morning and at night, rather than dread it. I haven't worn makeup much lately, but the few times I have since buying this cleanser, it's done an excellent job of removing my makeup, and I can go to sleep with peace of mind that my pores aren't clogged up.

    Get it from Glossier for $9+ (available in two sizes).

    2. 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

    3. And while you're at it, you'll want to add this pack of washing machine cleaning tablets to your cart as well!

    amazon.com

    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." —Kelli Crawford

    4. 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 four shapes).

    5. A stain and odor remover that'll be no match for messes and unpleasant smells left behind by fur babies. An immaculately clean carpet AND a wonderful snuggle buddy? Yes, you can have both!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm not going to lie, this stuff is significantly more expensive than most other available carpet sprays. You could probably buy four or five bottles of Febreze for the cost of this stuff, but the competition won't work nearly as well as Rocco & Roxie. This stuff is AMAZING." —Brian

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    6. A Billie razor subscription for the smoothest, gentlest shave of your life. For $9, you'll get a starter box with a handle in a pretty color of your choice, a magic magnetic holder, and two blades surrounded in a layer of charcoal soap.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    What you'll get: Your first box comes with a handle in a pretty color of your choice, a magic magnetic holder, and two blades. Depending on how often you shave, they'll send your four refill blades every month, two months, or three months. Also! Their shaving cream is not to be overlooked and can be added to your order for $8. It'll leave skin feeling extra smooth and you only need to use a nickel-sized amount! Eight BuzzFeed Shopping Editors tried out Billie and all of them LOVED it — be sure to check out our full review of the incredible Billie razor subscription!

    "So I recently gave in to see what the Billie hype was all about — as someone who was perfectly content buying a pack of multiple razors for about the same price, my expectations were't super high when it came to Billie, but I knew so many of my co-workers loved their Billie razors. Well, after a month, I am here to say, I am a Billie razor fan for life, and I will never turn back. The charcoal soap surrounding the blades really makes for the absolute smoothest shave — like I truly just glides against your skin and doesn't leave behind nicks or razor bumps. The magnetic holder and the pretty, sturdy handle all make the Billie experience even better. Trust me, it's worth all the hype and more." —Sam Wieder (aka, ME!)

    Get it from Billie for $9/initial box, and $9 per each blade re-fill box.

    7. Teeth-whitening pens to help 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.

    amazon.com

    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!" —Christine Thexton

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $19.99.

    8. A 3-in-1 BBQ tool featuring a dual-spatula system with serrated edges for flipping and cutting food. It can also be used as tongs that are wide enough to grab a whole chicken or roast.

    The Grommet

    Promising review: "Bought it for my son in law for Christmas, a grill master! Loved not burning his wrist on the big grill, and can pick up all large cuts of meat and small pieces of vegetable without a problem. Very well-made. Extremely pleased with this purchase!" —Joyce

    Get it from The Grommet for $16.95.

    9. 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.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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 in 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 four months without once instance of my shower drain backing up. This product is absolutely worth it." —JT

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in five colors).

    10. A nail strengthening cream that'll help your nails grow more quickly. Natural tips, here you come.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "So my grandmother told me about this product when I was young, about 20 years ago or so. I use it all the time! THIS STUFF WORKS! It works really well too. My nails grow really long in a few weeks and I get to decide when to cut them off. Women ask me about them all the time, 'How do you get such white nail tips?' Well, it's because of this." —Halie Brake

    Get it from Amazon for $7.94.

    11. A clip-on colander to make draining the liquid from the pot and pan incredibly easy and preparing dinner a lot less messy.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Designed to fit almost all round pots, pans, and bowls! It's compact and easy-to-store. Plus, it's BPA-free, FDA-approved, made of top-quality silicone, and dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "After many years of failing to drain skillets and pots by using a lid, I searched for and bought this guy. Wow! I can't believe I lived without this for so long. It's a dream to drain water from pasta, and grease from meat. No slippage, and it works great. Just need to be a little careful if you've got a lot of food in the pot/pan, as some of it can escape over the top, but the use of a spoon to keep it at bay works well." —R. Higgins

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

    12. A wood polish and conditioner that'll 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?

    On the left, a reviewer's wooden cabinet looking old and dirty, and on the right, the same reviewer's wooden cabinet, now looking brighter and cleaner
    amazon.com

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $16.98.

    13. A Snuggle Puppy – it'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

    Back in June, my family made the wonderful decision to add a puppy to our family. Bailey was just shy of turning 2 months when we first brought him home, and we decided to crate-train him to help prevent accidents during the day and night until he'd become house-trained. The first night home he slept like a DREAM, and we were certain we had hit the jackpot... until the second night when he cried loudly for six consecutive hours even when we'd come downstairs to try and calm him down. Thanks to advice from the internet and family friends, we quickly purchased the Snuggle Puppy kit, and it immediately helped to calm him down (picture on the left of him sleeping next to it at 2 months old). To use it, you take this little red heart beat-like ticker, turn it on, and put it inside of the toy, Velcro it shut, and it's meant to make your pup feel as if they're not alone inside the crate. He started sleeping through the night, was more relaxed during the day, and it made everyone in the house feel so much more relieved. It blew our expectations out of the water.

    Bailey is 7 months now and no longer sleeps in his crate because he's house-trained. He also doesn't snuggle up to the puppy for comfort like he did when we first bought it for him, but he LOVES playing with the puppy, as well as the other toys and the blanket that come with the kit. It's basically his new favorite chew/fetch toy (picture on the right of him, at almost 4 months old, chewing it), which obviously wasn't the intention, but my dog is SO happy when he has his Snuggle Puppy by his side. The price tag for the kit is definitely more than we wanted to spend on something we weren't sure would work, but I can fully attest two months later that it was the absolute best purchase we made for him! If you're considering getting a puppy, or your sanity is running low from a new puppy who suffers from separation anxiety or won't stop crying, I highly recommend getting this!

    Get it from Amazon: the Snuggle Puppy for $39.95 (available in five colors), or the Snuggle Puppy kit for $59.99 (available in three colors).

    14. A plant food spike to keep your plants fed for up to two months!

    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

    15. A mascara that delivers million dollar-looking lashes for less than $15, is extra great for those with sensitive eyes, and won't wear away or run.

    amazon.com

    Check out our review of this fabulous mascara!

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this mascara. I have very sensitive eyes and am highly devoted to my trusted brands. When a friend suggested this mascara I was curious, as she loved it. For the price point and how good it looked on her eyes, I thought why not. Holy moly. I'm in love. It makes my lashes longer, — looks like I'm natural but better — and has a thinner formula so it looks like I have a billion gorgeous lashes, and looks the same all day long. I cannot recommend this enough. It doesn't rub during the day and give me that black eye look. It's wonderful. Must buy. —Katherine Ochsman

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

    16. A lasagna trio pan to allow you to whip up THREE, that's right, THREE, different types of lasagna, or whatever else you choose to make in this pan, at the SAME TIME.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Made of heavy-weight aluminized steel for the best heat conduction and even baking and releasing. It's silicone-based, and made with non-stick coating. The pan is dishwasher-safe, but hand-washing is recommending to extend product life.

    Promising review: "As someone who has a child, (now a teenager), that will not eat any form of cheese, this pan is amazing! I typically avoid making any food that has cheese mixed into it, but now I can make him a section without cheese, and the rest of us our regular cheesy goodness. Another benefit to this pan is how well the portions slice. One cut with the spatula gives you a perfectly formed square. Each section makes four regular-sized portions for our family." —thelastcoyote101

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    17. A rain glass treatment that'll repel rain water, so you can drive in storms with peace of mind that you can actually see the road ahead clearly.

    A reviewer's car window with the treatment on it on one side, and not on the other — the side with the treatment is clearer to see out of while it's raining outside
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had a cheap, untempered windshield which was awful in the rain. A friend of mine from college recommended Rain-X and I was shocked at the difference. I applied it with a soft rag and sat there wondering if it was even on properly. I trusted the system and then later that night took my car out for a drive; it rained while I was out and the difference was instantly noticeable. Before, when using my wipers, streaks would obscure my view so much that any lights would make driving in the rain hard. Now, the droplets don't smear and smaller ones sometimes just roll off. It's pretty great." —Alison J. Gong

    Get it from Amazon for $3.99.

    18. A thickened down jacket with a cult-following to keep you feeling warm and cozy no matter how cold or windy it gets outside. Seriously, more than 5.5K reviewers swear by this amazing coat.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This coat is no joke. The coldest temperature I tested it out in was 9 degrees and I did not feel like I was freezing at all! I even tried to wear with just a T-shirt, no sweaters/layers underneath, to see if I felt cold...nothing. No cold! Boomshakalaka! It's also so stylish, roomy, has a thousand pockets (goodbye purse!) and looks different from all the rest out there." —Zhure

    Get it from Amazon for $149.99+ (available in 13 colors, and sizes 2XS—5XL).

    19. A microwave egg cooker so you can whip up a high protein breakfast without needing to break out the skillet or turn on the stove.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I often forgo breakfast because I feel like I just don't have enough time to cook in the mornings. But then along came this gadget, and it changed everything. You just pour eggs and any fillings like cheese, veggies, or protein into the egg cooker. Mix it all up and microwave for two minutes. And there you have it, eggs in no time with no mess." —Hannah Loewentheil, BuzzFeed Editor

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    20. 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.

    On the left, the bottom of a sink looking dirty, and on the right, the same sink now looking clean
    amazon.com

    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 $21.98.

    21. 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

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE these shoes. While running they provide excellent arch support and total foot support. I love that I can link them to my running app and receive performance feedback as I am running!" —smsteacher716

    Get them from Under Armour for $150 (available in nine colors, and sizes 5—12).

    23. Baker's Edge, a brownie pan to ensure each piece has at least two chewy edges, so fighting over the coveted end piece will become a thing of the past.

    The Baker's Edge brownie pan
    amazon.com

    This fits most standard box mixes, and has a continuous chamber design so batter can be easily spread. Plus, it features nonstick coating and heavy-gauge cast aluminum construction. It includes a nylon spatula and brownie recipes for inspo.

    Promising review: "Because this pan is intended for the 'brownie-edge lover,' if you aren't one, this is not the pan for you. Now if you're still reading then you must have heard the rumors about this pan. Not being one that makes brownies more than once a month I just couldn't convince myself to spend over $30 on a pan. Now that I have it I will never go back to a standard pan for brownies. It gives every brownie at least two chewy edges, it's totally nonstick, and there is no oiling or flouring necessary. Cleanup is easy. A little hot water, soap, rinse, dry, and voilà!" —Cricket

    Get it from Amazon for $36.95.

    24. Light-dimming stickers, because while you obviously adore your technology, you don't necessarily love the LED lights that radiate from it and keep you awake at night.

    On the top, a blue light from a router shining pretty bright, and on the bottom, the same light now more dimmed after the sticker is over it
    amazon.com

    These dim 50–80% of light! They're super easy to use. All you have to do is just peel and stick, and they don't leave any sticky residue, so you can remove any time you need with ease. Plus, they can always be cut or adjusted to your preferences/needs. They also make black-out dimming sheets and you can get them right here.

    Promising review: "This is the best thing you never knew you needed. I own a digital clock with the numbers displayed in red LED light, and every night I've blocked the light with a cover so it doesn't shine in my eyes as I sleep. Silly I know, but I like my room pitch black and cave-like. On a whim I bought this product. OH MY GOD! Game changer!! For the first night EVER I didn't have to cover the clock display before I went to bed!! I had no idea how big a difference this little dimmer could make, but I'm more than pleased with the result. I can still see the time display just fine, but now my room is a happy cave! Some commenters argue you could get the same effect using electrical tape but this product is easy to remove and doesn't leave a sticky residue at all, which can't be said for most tapes. I did notice a slight lag in response when I covered my TV LED sensor, so if you're trying to block something that actually senses inputs I would maybe not suggest this. Other than that, excellent product!" —Amazon Customer

    25. An SPF50+ tattoo stick to help hydrate and protect your tattoos from sweat and water, without giving your skin a greasy, oily feel like other SPFs can.

    INK the original, Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    This is 100% vegan and cruelty-free as well as free of parabens, sulfates, silicones, and petroleum.

    Promising review: "There — and I cannot stress this enough — are VERY little skincare products out there made specifically for tattoos, so this INK sunscreen stick (and their entire collection) is an actual godsend. I regularly use their tattoo brightener and it's like food for my tattoos: It's nourishing, hydrating, and my tattoos truly look like they were just inked — especially my hummingbird (pictured) that features fine lines." —Kayla Suazo, BuzzFeed Editor

    Get it from INK the original for $16.95.

    26. A water bottle that'll make it easy and most importantly, FUN, to keep track of your water intake so you stay hydrated all day long.

    Samantha Wieder / BuzzFeed

    Plus, it's dishwasher-safe!

    I own this wonderful water bottle, and I swear it's the only reason I'm good at keeping up with my water intake now. It comes with eight colorful rubber bands, and each time I finish the bottle, I take a rubber band off and wear it on my wrist. It's actually so rewarding getting to take a band off, and even more rewarding once you take the last band off. I've tried setting alarms on my phone, buying bigger water bottles, using the Plant Nanny app — this is the only thing that has worked for me. (Look — even my dog approves of it!)

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in four colors).

    27. A microfiber hair towel for a more effective way to dry your hair — regular bath towels don't absorb much water, and applying excessive heat from styling tools can end up damaging it over time. This soft and gentle towel is great for all hair types, quickly soaks up water, and helps reduce drying time.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Ever since I started using a microfiber hair towel, I hardly ever use a blow-dryer anymore. When it's summertime, I'd rather not add extra heat to my hair when it can be avoided, so I'll wash my hair at night, wrap it in a microfiber towel and let it dry on its own. It helps my curls feel much healthier." —Kayla Boyd, BuzzFeed Editor

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    28. A coffee bean ice tray so you can make coffee ice cubes! Starting your morning off with an iced coffee that's too diluted because you used regular ice cubes doesn't sound so appealing when you think of coffee bean cubes.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is an amazing product — I'm so glad to have found it! Even my friends love it when I take it out of the freezer! Just fill it up with coffee, stick it in the freezer, and you've got iced coffee for later." —Kayla

    Get it from Amazon for $8.

    29. A food storage container set to preserve the shelf life of your produce and leftovers — they're made for eating, not throwing in the garbage.

    Includes one 2.5-cup container and one 17.3-cup container. Features a CrispTray to help keep moisture away and FreshVent technology to regulate oxygen and carbon dioxide flow. These are dishwasher-safe and BPA-free. Read a BuzzFeeder's review of these amazing Rubbermaid FreshWorks containers.

    Promising review: "I wish I would have gotten these sooner. I bought strawberries for my children, and then I forgot about them. I found them in the back of the refrigerator almost TWO WEEKS later, and they were still good. The real miracle is how long it keeps zucchini. Zucchini starts to get mushy in the crisper drawer after just a few days. Again, these miracle containers have kept it fresh for close to two weeks now. I've kept cut lettuce, cut cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, cucumbers, zucchini, sliced bell peppers, strawberries, blackberries, cut jicama, and carrots in these containers. I've had fantastic results with all of them." —Laura

    30. A Dyson vacuum that can easily transform between being a cordless stick vacuum and a handheld vacuum, so it's versatile in cleaning just about every part of your home — even the ceiling.

    Amazon

    This is a cord-free vacuum! It can run for up to 30 minutes when using a non-motorized tool. It requires being charged for a minimum of 3.5 hours before first use! Plus, it has a hygienic emptying bin, because we don't think you should have to touch the yucky stuff you're suctioning up. It can be quickly transformed into a handheld vacuum! Be sure to check out our write-up of this amazing Dyson vacuum.

    Promising review: "I’m a dog-lover and my wife is not. Over the years, she has graciously agreed to have golden retriever with the big downside being the amount of shedding. The hair everywhere drives her nuts. Enter this vacuum: it has revolutionized pet ownership in our household! We have a nice canister vacuum, but it’s heavy, and it’s a hassle to get out. So, that meant we often let dog hair accumulate and didn’t vacuum every day. This vacuum is so lightweight, so simple to use, and so effective at picking up dog hair that we take it down from its handy wall mount and use it a couple times a day. My wife’s stress levels have dropped dramatically! This is a great vacuum and I highly recommend it, especially if you are constantly battling pet hair." —Ron Watts

    31. An electric wine bottle opener that'll make removing the cork on your bottle of vino easy peazy.

    Can open up to 30 bottles on a single charge, and features a simple push-button operation. Plus, it has a comfy, soft-grip handle.

    Promising review: "As a senior citizen, I find that opening a bottle of wine can be a challenge using a manual corkscrew. This opener is great. You place it on the bottle with one hand, while holding the bottle with the other, and press a button. The corkscrew goes into the cork and will stop when it's fully inserted. Press the button again and it will remove the cork from the bottle, and then continue until the cork comes off of the corkscrew. So much easier than doing it manually. I've used it at parties and the charge will last between 20 to 30 bottles. It also comes with a charging stand and a cutter for the paper wrapped on the bottle neck." —CharmY2K

    32. Water bottle cleaning tablets to get your beloved drinking bottle 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.

    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

    33. 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, sorry not sorry.

    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!" —Dan S
