    1. Nerdwax for those who are getting real tired, real fast, of their glasses slipping and sliding down their noses. No offense glasses, but how am I supposed to, uhh, SEE if you keep falling down?

    Nerdwax

    It helps to first wipe off surface oils from the glasses. It can last one hour to all day depending on how much you apply, and a single tube of Nerdwax can last for about six to eight months.

    Review: "I spend six to nine hours a day on my computer and it is impossible to get any work done with your glasses sliding down your face! I love this stuff so much — best $15 I've ever spent." —elizabethtri24

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $15.99. Also available in a pack of two or three.

    2. A Scrub Daddy for cleaning all the nasty residue from your dishes and utensils while combating those rancid smells your sponges emit after just a few uses.

    The cool thing about this baby is its texture-changing abilities — in warm water it becomes soft, and in cold water it becomes firm.
