    60 Things With Before And After Photos That'll Absolutely Floor You

    I mean, I'm pretty floored right now.

    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 β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A hard-water stain remover for cleaning those stubborn messes and restoring your surfaces to brand new condition.

    amazon.com

    This helps eliminate hard water stains, rust, and limescale from things like shower doors, shower stalls, shower glass, windshields, windows, glass, barbecues, chrome, tile, toilets, granite, steel, fiberglass, pools, bath tubs, sinks, granite, marble, chrome, boats, autos, brass, stone, metals, porcelain, brass, alumnium, stainless steel, hard vinyl, and more!

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

    Get it from Amazon for $19.75.

    2. An anti-dandruff shampoo to relieve your dry, flaky scalp, because we know you want to go about your day without worrying about pesky white clumps.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "MIRACLE PRODUCT!!! If you have dandruff, flaky scalp, scabs, etc... BUY THIS! I was about to go to the dermatologist if this stuff didn’t work. Thank goodness I saved myself hundreds of dollars by giving this product a shot. I used it four to five times (over a month), and it cleared my scalp almost completely. One more use and my scalp will be 120% healed! This stuff blew my mind. Totally worth it." β€”chris

    Get it from Amazon for $14.59/single-pack, or $28.20/two-pack.

    3. A two-piece food storage container set that'll preserve the shelf life of your produce and leftovers β€” they're made for eating, not throwing in the garbage.

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    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." β€”Laura

    Get them from Amazon for $23.96.

    4. A clear, bitter nail polish to help you curb your biting habit β€” one taste of this stuff is gonna have you quickly realizing your chompers are better used for food or gum than for nails.

    amazon.com

    FYI β€” this stuff expires 24 months after opening!

    Promising review: "I have been biting my fingernails as long as I could chew. I grew immune to the taste of the no-bite nail polish you can buy at drugstores. I tried keeping a rubber band on my wrist and popping it every time I noticed myself chewing. This nail polish has been the only thing that has worked. I keep a bottle on my desk at work and another one at home just in case I slip up. I had the first manicure of my life a few weeks ago. Amazing product." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $15.50/single-pack, $25/two-pack, or $36.95/three-pack.

    5. A shampoo that prevents your cool bleached hair from turning yellow, and costs way less than going back to the salon.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have bleached blonde hair that loves to go brassy. I can’t stand brassy/yellow blonde (on me). If you are looking for icy blonde to platinum, this is the shampoo for you. It completely removes all yellow from my hair. My friends are always asking me how I get this silvery blonde. Well, this is the secret. The trick is to wet your hair, put the shampoo on with as little agitation as possible (put it on like a conditioner, don’t let it lather), leave it for about five minutes (or however long it takes to wash your body and a quick shave), and then rinse. I use it about two times a week and it keeps my blonde PERFECT. I’ve tried every purple shampoo on the market (almost) and this is THE BEST. All of my blonde friends use it now." β€”T. Lubben

    Get it from Amazon for $11.89 (available in three sizes).

    6. Water bottle cleaning tablets for getting your beloved drinking vessel 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 β€” 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." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $8/12 tablets, or $19.65/36 tablets.

    7. A tire shining kit that may have you standing on the top of your car once you're done using it and channeling your inner Danny Zuko. Just make sure the top of the car stays clean from the bottoms of your dirty shoes, too.

    amazon.com

    It comes with a microfiber applicator!

    Promising review: "I have only had to use the spray twice in a month and a half and the only reason for the second use was I put my car through an automatic car wash. If it wasn't for that I would still be on one use. My friend thought I never drive my car because the tires look brand new every time I see him. I also use it on the plastic parts on the outside of my car and it's just as amazing. Definitely buying again when I run out." β€”A. Glaza

    Get it from Amazon for $16.97.

    8. And while you're at it, you're gonna want to also add some wheel cleaner to your cart. Who has the sharpest ride around town now? That's right, you do!

    amazon.com

    This is safe to use on various wheel finishes including chrome, aluminum, steel, clear-coated, PVD, painted, plastic wheel covers, magnesium, and aftermarket wheels.

    Promising review: "It will take one look from your friends to say. 'Did you buy some new wheels?' This stuff is absolutely amazing. For the full effect, dismount your wheel, spray the back. Go do something for 10 minutes. Wash with water, no scrubbing needed. Turn the rim face up, do it again. Do the rest of your rims, and don't forget the tire protectant when you reinstall them. This stuff will handle salt, road tar, off-road dirt and mud; you get it dirty, it comes clean. Where was this stuff when I was racing off-road?" β€”johnfcon

    Get it from Amazon for $17.63.

    9. A DIY temporary tooth, because while there is absolutely nothing wrong with having a missing tooth, sometimes for the sake of photos at a special event, you want a full smile, and that's great also! Either way, remember your smile is AWESOME.

    amazon.com

    Comes with a set of dental cleaning tools as well as step-by-step instructions and a 3D animated video on how to make the tooth yourself. It's made with FDA-approved material.

    Promising review: "I would give this 100 stars. I had to be IN a wedding without a front tooth and out of desperation ordered this. You could NOT TELL AT ALL that the tooth was not real. My husband was amazed... they give you enough material to make a dozen or more teeth. BEST INVESTMENT you can make if you can't afford the dentist but need to fix an unsightly lost tooth gap. I ate with it for three days straight and if you let it harden in place in your mouth, it won't come out until you pull it firmly. You will be completely safe to be in front of people and even out to dinner. Buy it." β€”Ashland A.

    Get it from Amazon for $32.75 (originally $39.95).

    10. A sunburn lotion to help soothe and reduce the not-so-fun things that happen after you spend a day out in the sun, like itchiness and peeling.

    amazon.com

    PLEASE LATHER UP ON SUNSCREEN, THO!!!

    Promising review: "Best product ever for sunburns! No peeling or itching. Simply amazing! The photos are four days apart." β€”Carrie

    Get it from Amazon for $7.72.

    11. A screen cleaning kit because things like fingerprints and dust can make our precious laptops and iPhones look foggy and gross. This will turn back time to when you first pulled it out of the box looking shiny and new.

    amazon.com

    This spray is free of alcohol, ammonia, and harmful phosphates. It's also streak-free! It can be used to clean HDTV's, PC monitors, Kindle Fire, tablets, laptops, smartphone displays, Apple Mac products, iPhones, and more! Plus, it comes with an extra-large, scratch-free microfiber cloth.

    Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely incredible. I've had my MacBook for a few months now and in the college environment of lugging it back and forth to class, eating around it and doing group projects it had turned into a grease machine. I had tried just about every version of microfiber cloth, the sprays that promise they don't streak, and just about every electronic wipe on the market. To no avail, I went to Amazon and with the glowing reviews, I couldn't say no to giving it a try. Got it today and I am just blown away. Never have I felt the need to write an Amazon review, but here I am because it's just. that. good. Attached are pictures for proof, it works people! Ordering a travel size version to keep in my backpack as we speak!" β€”McKenzie Meuleveld

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95 (originally $21.95).

    12. A spice rack drawer organizer to make looking for your favorite seasonings super easy, and preventing messy clutter.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is one of the favorite things I've ever purchased from Amazon! They are so customizable and allow you to cut them and shape them to any drawer size. I think this will be my go-to gift for all of my friends who love cooking as much as I do! Freeing up cabinet space and having something that can so easily be rinsed off in the sink makes this a for sure buy!" β€”momonono

    Get it from Amazon for $14.39+ (available in two sizes).

    13. A hard water boosting powder that'll give your kitchenware a tougher clean than just detergent alone will give. Plus, it leaves behind a fresh lemon scent, and personally, I'm a sucker for anything lemon-scented.

    amazon.com

    Just add this to your pre-wash chamber with detergent. If you don't have a pre-wash chamber, don't fret. Just add 2 tbsp. to the bottom of your dishwasher!

    Promising review: "I could not get my flatware to come out clean from the dishwasher and I wondered if it was the hard water. I was using up to three soap blocks in each load with only partial improvement. I used this the first time and voilΓ ! Perfectly clean flatware for the first time. I LOVE this!" β€”Susan A

    Get it from Amazon for $5.97.

    14. A shoe cleaning kit, because let's be real, all shoes eventually become disgusting. I mean you're walking on the ground outside. Add in elements like weather, dirt, germs, animal waste (gross, but true). I mean, yeah, I hope you get it.

    amazon.com

    The cleaner contains saddle soap, gentle oils, and conditioners, and works on all washable leathers, vinyl, nubuck, suede, canvas, cloth shoes, and more! Plus, it comes with a brush!

    Promising review: "I have had my Nike Roshes for about a year now, and I don't go easy on them. I play sports and run in the dirt with them all the time, but I also like to wear them for fashion purposes. Pink Miracle helped restore my daily shoes to look like I just bought them, and now I can wear them for even longer." β€”Romario

    Get it from Amazon for $17.97.

    15. A jewelry cleaning pen so you don't have to spend time and energy changing out of your pajamas just to go pay someone else to shine your beloved treasures.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was so excited to see the huge difference in how clean my jewelry looked. The cleaning process took less than five minutes and now it sparkles like new!" β€”Jackie_X

    Get it from Amazon for $10.79.

    16. 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." β€”Rachel G.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    17. Finishing Touch Flawless Legs for removing hair in a painless, seamless, and simple way that is a million and one times better than subjecting yourself to shaving or waxing.

    amazon.com

    It features 18K gold plated heads to contour every curve on your leg. It also has a built-in LED light to make it easy-to-see and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. BTW, this is solely for use on legs, do NOT use under your arms! PS – I'm personally a huge fan of the Finishing Touch eyebrow hair remover. I have extremely sensitive skin, and I was constantly leaving eyebrow waxing appointments with red skin, peeled skin, sometimes my eyelids would literally start bleeding. I couldn't even keep my eyes open. It makes cleaning up my eyebrows SO easy, and legitimately pain-free. Not even an ounce of pain, no joke. And they also make a tool for general hair removal, that's good to use in places like your upper lip!

    Promising review: "LOVE IT! This is now my favorite hair remover. It's so easy and comfortable to use, leaving my legs soft and smooth from top to bottom. There was no discomfort or irritation at all. Smoothly gliding around/over ankles, back of the knees, and blind curves. I have found using this is actually a relaxing experience." β€”TJ Champagne

    Get it from Amazon for $52.99.

    18. A cooktop cleaning kit because look: you're using the thing to make your meals, so naturally it's going to get dirty. Sometimes things fall out of the pot, sometimes things splatter from the pan, and sometimes burns happen because you're too busy dancing to the Jonas Brothers and forgot about your pasta... not speaking from personal experience here!

    amazon.com

    Comes with a 10 oz. bottle of cooktop cleaner, a cleaning pad, and a scraper. It helps to clean grease, stains, and remove burnt and baked-on deposits.

    Promising review: "As soon as I used this stuff, I couldn't believe it! We had a new stove that I didn't clean for months and assumed the burnt pea juice (my enemy) would just be a new stain forever. However, after one application, it was basically gone. I used the scraper that came with it and did one more small application on just that spot, and it was gone! Every time I use this it looks like my stove could be brand new." β€”Christi Lambertson

    Get it from Amazon for $11.50 (originally $15.99).

    19. Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay for a thorough, deep-cleaning facial to get rid of the yucky stuff hiding deep in your pores.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Great product. I mix Bragg Raw Apple Cider Vinegar with my Aztec Secret Indian Bentonite Healing Clay for my facial masks (instead of mixing water with the clay). After the facial, my pores are totally clean, and they seem to disappear. My skin also tightens and takes on a youthful glow. The results last for about a week or a little longer." β€”Gloria

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    20. A grout pen that'll 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.

    amazon.com

    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!" β€”Jenelle

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in three colors, and two sizes).

    21. A metal polishing cloth for making things like jewelry look like they were just unwrapped from their pretty packaging β€” unless tarnished bracelets and earrings are trendy now and I haven't caught on yet.

    amazon.com / amazon.com

    The cloth is made of soft cotton, so it won't scratch! Check out our write-up of the amazing Sabrina Silver polishing cloth.

    Promising review: "The first thing I cleaned off was an old Tiffany's necklace. I hadn't worn it in a couple years, and it was covered in tarnish. After rubbing the piece on the cloth for a minute or two, it literally looked like new again! I was amazed at how easy it was to use β€” it's a lot less messy than toothpaste and other cleaning solutions. The cloth is quite soft as well, so I wasn't worried about it scratching any of my jewelry. I read in the instructions that you never have to clean this cloth, and that it lasts for years and years (depending on how much jewelry you polish, of course)." β€”Yi Yang

    Get it from Amazon for $7.24/single-pack, or $15.99/three-pack.

    22. A 5-in-1 styling cream to trick people into thinking you get your hair professionally done each morning. Extra perfect to get you through the hottest days of the summer in August, but honestly, is perfect to just use year-round, too!

    Amazon

    Be sure to check out our write-up of the fabulous Living Proof Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment.

    Promising review: "I've received lots of compliments on my hair since switching to this product, from random people asking if I paid for a blowout (NOPE!) to a friend's roommate exclaiming, 'Your hair is editorial straight!' (Thanks!) β€” so yeah, it’s legit. It’s also extremely lightweight because it’s made without parabens or phthalates, which I’m told weigh down your hair! And it’s safe to use on straight, wavy, or curly hair. I pull it through my hair from roots to ends and then blow-dry my hair (with this blow-dryer) and a brush (like this one). Without this 5-in-1 miracle stuff, it’d take a lot more product (and effort) to make my hair look like this post-blowout. In short, if Living Proof stops making this stuff, I’m buying a damn case of it." β€”Elizabeth Lilly

    Get it from Amazon for $28.

    23. A two-pack of tongue scrapers so you can not only help reduce the bad breath tied with having gunk on your tongue, but also to ensure your selfie game is yuck-free, and really, which is more important? (OK fine, it's the bad breath.)

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "It's hard to review this product without grossing people out but I think the truth needs to get out. There is some nasty stuff on your tongue that a toothbrush cannot remove, especially in the back. This thing allows you to remove it easily without gagging yourself by trying to shove a toothbrush down your throat. I was definitely surprised the first time I used it how much material I removed, and yes that stuff smells bad. After that first time I couldn't get anywhere near as much off of my tongue which tells me that the material had been there a while. My breath is noticeably better now. This is a very simple tool and it cleans up well since it's just a piece of stainless steel and rubber handles." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $8.95 (originally $10).

    24. A toenail brace to help correct nail curvature and reduce ingrown toenails β€” as a former ingrown toenail sufferer myself, who had to have surgery not once, but twice, I WISH I could have easily tried to solve my issues by buying a product on Amazon!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a product that actually works for ingrown toenails. I had suffered for years with ingrown nails on both big toes. They were so painful that I bought wide shoes to try and be more comfortable, and wore sandals practically all year. I was skeptical about spending this much, but I’d easily spent that much over the years on things that don’t work. I followed directions to a T (not difficult). The first couple of days, I didn’t notice a difference in pain, but by days three and four, it no longer hurt to touch the side of my toes. After wearing a few weeks, my nail shape is now flatter, as it's supposed to be. Great product!! Worth every penny." β€”Amazon Queen

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99.

    25. A toilet wand that'll prove wands of all sorts, even ones for cleaning toilets, are truly magical objects. Refer to disgusting photos below for evidence.

    amazon.com

    Comes with one ToiletWand, one storage caddy, and six disposable ToiletWand refills to kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses. Just click the wipe onto the wand, swish, scrub, and clean the bowl, pop the wipe off, and dispose in the trash.

    Promising review: "So, we have a toilet that belongs to the cats. We don't use it, we don't look at it, we like to pretend it does not exist. Even with semi-regular flushing, cat waste is pretty nasty stuff and built up quickly in the bowl. One of these wands cleaned it up in a single session! Before-and-after pic attached (above)." β€”Whitney

    Get it from Amazon for $8.88.

    26. A wood polish and conditioner to bring your beloved 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?

    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." β€”Kris

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48 (originally $14.98).

    27. A foot filer that'll leave your feet feeling even smoother than your pedicurist can make them feel β€” minus the tickle attack from the pumice stone.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing is pretty amazing. I was skeptical for sure, since I've tried all kinds of lotions, balms, and stone-based products, none of which helped my heels whatsoever. I've worn socks to bed for years, because if I don't the sheets hardly last a week before they have holes rubbed through them. My wife ordered this thing that looks like a mini cheese grater, lol, and after two minutes β€” two minutes!! β€” of rubbing it on my heel, it's a complete 180. I never would've believed it until I tried it myself. This is well worth double what it costs." β€”LBK

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (originally $10.99).

    28. A makeup brush cleansing shampoo to clean those things you use to apply cosmetics to your precious FACE. Because makeup build-up is yucky, and we don't want you to have go out and spend your last paycheck on new brushes and sponges!

    amazon.com

    This brush cleaning shampoo is paraben-, phthalates-, petroleum-, and perfume-free. It's also hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested, water-based, and made with gentle, plant-based ingredients, because after all, your makeup brushes are used on your face, so you want to be sure you're cleaning them with a natural, safe product.

    Promising review: "I hate washing my brushes, I've always done it by hand and it's always caused the big fluffy powder brushes to feel rougher or become matted no matter how hard I try to reshape them. I got this solution and used it with a makeup brush spinner (I used the Mevolic one), and I couldn't BELIEVE how amazing my brushes were afterwards! I also have insanely sensitive skin and most any soap I put on a brush will cause me to breakout when I use it later, no matter how well I typically rinse it. But I really think that this cleaner and the brush spinner worked great and I haven't had any sensitive bumps on my skin since using them." β€”Chelsea

    Get it from Amazon for $5.29 (originally $7.99).

    29. A nail top coat for getting your polish dried super quick AND for making them last longer β€” win/win.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is incredible. Fast dry time β€” I did my nails in 15 minutes, from removing nail polish to two coats and top coat, all completely dry! And it lasts. I didn’t have any chips until day five when I did a bunch of cooking. 5 stars and such a great reasonable price!" β€”Amber Espinoza

    Get it from Amazon for $5.79 (originally $9.99).

    30. A two-pack of Bar Keepers Friend multi-purpose cleaner that'll get your kitchen, bathroom, and even cookware (see superb exhibit below), looking shinier than Chip Skylark's teeth.

    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!" β€”Dan Borden

    Get them from Amazon for $9.31.

    31. A cap cage so you can clean your hat in the dishwasher, and voilΓ  β€” it looks just the way it did when you first bought it!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Works like a charm! It's given new life to my favorite baseball caps, some of which, I'm sad to report, have suffered tragically in washing machine incidences. Never would I have considered the dishwasher, but Ballcap Buddy said yes, so I tried it, and not only did my caps get clean, but they retained their shape. It's a perfect way to wash a baseball cap. Different styles, different colors and materials...all came out the same: Looking good." β€”Mcharmony

    Get it from Amazon for $7.90/single-pack, or $12.49/two-pack.

    32. A cable protector to save your ripped-up cords, because those things are expensive.

    amazon.com

    Can be used to protect cables for pretty much all of your devices including cell phones, computers, laptops, lightening cables, PCs, and more! This can also be used as a chew-safe cord protector in case you have a fluffer who likes to nibble at your wires. To install, just wrap the cable protector onto your preferred cable.

    Promising review: "I hate to recall how many new iPhone chargers and MacBook power bricks I've had to buy over the years as the originals gradually frayed at the connector ends until they stopped working altogether. These inexpensive little coils wind right around the connector base and first half inch or so of the cord to keep it from bending and ultimately breaking at the join. Genius." β€”ElleNWC

    Get them from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in three colors).

I've tried everything, including having my warts frozen off at the doctor, and not even that did the trick. This stuff did. My warts were extremely large and stubborn, but I was persistent with the gel every day for about six weeks, and they're almost gone. It's absolutely amazing." β€”Maria Efting

This takes care of any stain so fast and efficiently, it's become a party trick. I have seriously poured red wine over a white comforter to demonstrate how great it is to a friend once. It is a miracle in a bottle! We use it for all sorts of cleaning on materials around the house, and one bottle has lasted us years!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Like many of the people who have posted reviews, I've tried every curl cream in the book. High end to low end, I've tried them all. I can't remember how I stumbled across this product but it was the reviews that made me want to give it a try. Thank goodness I did and that's why I'm writing this review. This product is amazing. I have waist length wavy/curly red hair and I only have to use two pumps of the product to coat all my hair. My curls are wonderfully moisturized and shaped with absolutely ZERO greasy or crunchy feel. A little goes a long way. Highly recommend this!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "I had a few noticeable fine scratches on the hood of my truck that I tried this Trinova Scratch and Swirl Remover on, and it worked. I no longer have to be annoyed every time I approach my vehicle from the front! It didn't take a lot of effort to get it back to looking like new again. I will use it again in the future if necessary. I'm glad that I didn't pay someone at the body shop to try to buff the scratches out, I saved a bunch of money with this!" β€”Bonnie Walton

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my crazy cat-loving life? Sticky rollers work fine for clothes but this is the only product that has ever COMPLETELY removed all the cat hair from my bed. I have a long-haired 20-lb. tabby and if you run your hands up his back a few times and fling the hair everywhere, it looks like it's snowing – he never stops shedding no matter what I do. After using the ChomChom, I can put on a black dress and roll around on my bed and not get a single hair on me. It's absolutely amazing. Everyone is getting one for Christmas, even if they don't have a pet. I don't care; it's THAT good." β€”Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95 (originally $34.99).

    Get it from Amazon for $20.

    39. Two pairs of boot shapers to keep your boots standing up straight, because when the tall ones do that thing where they wilt away, ugh, there's just something SO frustrating about it. Like, stand up, fix your posture, PLEASE.

    amazon.com

    These versatile shapers can be customized to fit ankle, calf, and knee-high boots!

    Promising review: "These are simple shapes of die-cut black plastic that you bend and insert into boots to keep them upright. The plastic has enough springiness that they expand to the width of the boot, and also a slight ribbing on one side (the side you put facing the boots) so they don't slip. Height is adjustable for short, medium, and tall boots!" β€”PK

    Get them from Amazon for $8.61 (originally $9.99).

    41. Clip-on hair bangs to test out your dream hairstyle, without having to actually commit.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had very LOW expectations for this. I accidentally cut my bangs too short the other night because my puppy distracted me mid cut. I thought it would be funny to buy this and wear it one day. I got it for laughs mostly, not really expecting it to look normal. AND OMG I AM SHOCKED! First of all, it's the exact same shade as my hair color. It was super easy to put on. The hair feels soft and realistic. I am so beyond amazed. So far, no one has been able to tell that the bangs are fake! I love them!" β€”Jrod

    Get it from Amazon $5.99 (available in 25 colors).

    42. A watermark remover cloth that'll get rid of those annoying ringlet stains on your furniture β€” you warned your family and guests to use a coaster but, of course, they didn't listen!

    amazon.com

    Cloth is reusable, and can be used to remove marks on wood caused by water, alcohol, and heat. It can also be used to polish metal and chrome.

    Promising review: "I must admit I ordered this as a last hope. I had a mark on my bedside table that I tried various things to remove, but was totally unsuccessful. I tried this today, and there is NO sign of the mark. It is like brand new again. I was thrilled with the result and highly recommend it to anyone, but would suggest you try it first to save yourself grief! It is inexpensive in the first place, but to know I can reuse it if necessary on another mark, (hopefully that doesn't occur, but life happens), makes it an even better value." β€”Kritik

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    43. Pimple patches to apply onto a stubborn pimple, go through your normal routine, take off hours later, and mutter to yourself "OMG, I can't believe these really work!"

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I’ve tried so many brands of pimple spots, and these are hands-down the best on the market. I’m a performer at Walt Disney World, and a clear complexion is required. Last night, I put these on a few acne problems (a small cyst, a whitehead, and a pimple I shouldn’t have picked and has been a bump for about three weeks now). I just woke up and am writing this review in disbelief. THEY'RE FLAT! Gone! All of them! I could cry I’m so happy. The packaging is also ideal because it allows you to conveniently and easily peel the stickers off without stretching them out or folding them back on themselves. Do yourself and your complexion a huge favor! Have these on hand for a stubborn zit when you really need help. Make sure you apply them to completely clean and dry skin." β€”Caitlyn

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing is great! I have a large bag I use as a carry-on when I fly by plane. Unfortunately it has very few pockets and is just like a bottomless pit. This fit in perfectly. I was able to organize all my items quite well. They were easy to retrieve in flight and in the airport. I didn't use the zipper compartment at all, but did put that piece in to use it as a divider. It is well-made and sturdy. Be sure to measure your inner bag space first!" β€”Susan

    Promising review: "I've tried several stain removers and have to say this stuff really does remove stains. It has removed: blood, grape juice, baby barf, chocolate, grass stains, sweat stains, melon, pretty much everything. I have to say I was almost shocked at how well this worked. My wife says they should rename it 'chill mom,' because she no longer worries about stains at all. That's priceless when you have a very curious and adventurous little boy who keeps finding new ways to get dirty." β€”Martin Isaksen

    Promising review: "Have you ever seen the movie The Santa Clause? There's a scene where Tim Allen's character shaves away his white beard and then ~WHOOSH!~ it reappears instantaneously. That's basically my bathtub and soap scum. I've tried many products to keep it at bay, but this is the only one that has ever really worked. Not only does it have a cute dog on the packaging, it also allows me to (easily!) wipe away dastardly soap scum without having to use a lot of muscle! Which is great, because I don't exactly have a lot of muscle to use." β€”Mallory McInnis

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "This thing is amazing. Holds well in the hand, has many different outline sides, and the chalk pencil it comes with does a good job of helping me keep my line when I shave with a straight razor. I have tried other beard templates but they were too big, left outlines that looked subpar, and didn't have a barber pencil. This is worth every penny." β€”J

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95 (originally $14.99).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've tried many, many face washes for blemish prone skin in my lifetime and this is one of my favorites. It's very mild, lathers beautifully, and leaves your face feeling extremely clean without being tight or stripped of moisture. There was a noticeable difference in the clearness of my skin within the first week of use! I like to wipe my makeup off with a microfiber cloth first, then wash my face with this cleanser to get off the first layer of makeup and gunk. I have many problems with my skin, and this seems to really work for me in terms of gently yet effectively controlling oiliness, acne, and blackheads specifically." β€”Shoko

I am confident with my smile." β€”Richard

I also cleaned out my bathroom sink, which was drawing fine, but since I was already grossed out by the slimed hair I pulled out of the tub... I'm so happy to have found this little tool and suggest everyone have one on-hand for clogs." β€”Tammy Parker

    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." β€”Jess

    Promising review: "I have been having trouble with badly cracked heels and I tried vaseline in my socks overnight, but I would get hot and end up taking them off. These provided great breathability all night and in the morning β€” my cracked heels already look a million times better. If you are looking for a product that softens your heels and starts working away at those dry, cracked areas immediately, I would recommend these. After wearing them for three days, (and using a pumice stone once in the shower in between), my heels look nearly perfect." β€”Victor Farrell

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." β€”Kelli Crawford

    Promising review: "I have a 19-year-old master bathroom toilet that had accumulated some nasty stains over time, and regular toilet brushes and cleaning products just would not remove them. I decided to try this pumice stone, and it worked like a charm! Given the nature and severity of the stains, it required some elbow grease.
