    38 Practical Products That’ll Make You Think “Not Me Getting My Life Together”

    You're an adult now. And these products will help you act like one.

    1. An adjustable car cup holder so your Nalgene or Hydro Flask bottle can sit safely instead of insecurely between your legs because there's nowhere for it to go. Now there is!

    Promising review: “No longer does my beastly Yeti roll all over my truck slamming into things when I make a hard turn. I must be old because this brought way too much joy to my life. I’m sure it works with the Hydro Flask as well, keeps it secure and doesn’t bounce. Will be purchasing another as a backup. The adjustable base fit snug in both cup holders.” —Mammoth117 

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in black and gray).

    2. A few under-the-bed containers for storing clothes, blankets, towels, and whatever else is eating up all the space in your room. Simply pack the clutter away in this sturdy and durable container and slide it under your bed for easy access later.

    Promising review: "I LOVE these drawers. I went through two other options of the flimsy drawers that just collapse when you have items in them and everything spills out. These have a sturdy bottom and sturdy sides and keep all contents inside under the bed and nothing falls over or spills out when sliding." —Brooke Gross

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99 (available in three colors).

    3. A super smart soap-dispensing sponge caddy that'll fill your sponge with the perfect amount of dish soap so you never waste any in your efforts to keep every dish perfectly pristine. Just press down and voilà!

    Promising review: "This product is amazing. You need this in your kitchen. It delivers the perfect amount of soap every time and gets your dishes squeaky clean. But wait, there’s more! When your sponge is done with a hard day of washing dishes, you can feel comfortable laying it down in a bed that prevents soap scum around your sink. In the words of Nat, 'Buy this product, champions.'" —Christian

    Get it from Amazon for $11.49 (available in three colors).

    4. Downy Wrinkle Releaser fabric spray if you have a tendency to scorch your clothes when you iron them. Now, all you have to do is spray, tug, and hang your clothes to dry for wrinkle-free fits in no time flat!

    Promising review: “In the past, I'd have to pull out my ironing board and say a prayer I didn't burn holes in any of our more delicate shirts. With the wrinkle releaser I lay out the shirt or hang it up, spray both sides, and smooth. In a few short minutes the shirt is dry and my wrinkles gone. No more lugging around the ironing board, worrying about ruining a shirt with an overzealous iron, or making myself late trying to rid my work blouse of a few wrinkles before heading out the door.” —Amazon Customer

    5. A box of Color Catcher sheets to prevent anymore of your reds and blues from turning your whites into tie-dye creations. Just toss one of these into the wash and it'll soak up all loose dyes!

    Promising review: “I’ve used Color Catchers for many years, so I can wash darks and lights together. They save time and money. (I’ve given boxes to each of my children as they headed off to college.) You can tell they work because you see the color they soak up. Recently, a new purple shirt took me by surprise and ran profusely. I had two color catchers in that load, and they both turned deep violet.” —Go Steelers 

    Get 72 sheets from Amazon for $9.94.

    6. A pack of babyproofing corner protectors so you have one less thing to worry about as your toddler starts taking their first steps. They're soft and transparent to keep your family safe and your furniture sleek.

    Promising review: “These are easy to stick on and easy to take off. The thick rubbery, plastic, rounded ends are solid and thick enough to stop your kid from getting hurt, but it’s also not so soft that enough pressure on the corner would puncture the protector and hurt your kid. It’s just enough to make it safe. The clarity of transparency is great and I barely notice it’s on our furniture. From far away you’ll barely notice it’s on either. Great addition to the house to keep our son safe and give us peace of mind that we don’t have to watch him like a hawk for fear of smashing his face into something hard.” —Christopher Wu

    7. An eco-friendly oven scrub cleaner for tackling all the caked-on messes you've learned to ignore. It's made with natural ingredients (including pumice stone and baking soda), so you'll get your oven back without all the toxic fumes.

    Promising review: "Works like a charm. I saw this on a TikTok and knew immediately that I needed it. I love candles and this is so much better than a match or lighter. It’s kept a charge for months. I use it several times a month." —dwhite3012

    Promising review: "Well, I have never before been so shocked at the effectiveness of a product. Our 5-year-old Frenchie, Carol, had a nose that was so crusty it was sprouting these long strands of more crust. There was literally crust on crust on crust. The nose had strings of crust. This nose was so crusty and repulsive it was almost beautiful. Her nose might have resembled the rarest, most exotic geode to be mined from the rarest mine in Guatemala. A friend recommended Snout Soother for Carol's repulsive nose. I was worried she would just lick it all off and it wouldn't work. We never imagined she could have a regular, soft, moist nose again. Honestly this product is some magic stuff! Unbelievable results in three to five days. No one paid me to write this." —Brittany

    10. A bottle of dandruff shampoo formulated with ketoconazole to relieve and control flaking, scaling, and itching caused by dandruff. Clean and clear scalps for all!

    Promising review: "MIRACLE PRODUCT! If you have a flaky scalp from dandruff, 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 of 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." —chris

    Get it from Amazon for $14.84.

    11. A pack of AirPod putty cleaners so you're listening to music instead of your built-up wax moonlighting as a DJ in your ears.

    See it in action on TikTok here

    Promising review: "OK. I bought this because I saw it on a TikTok. I was hesitant to buy it because I was afraid the putty would get stuck to and damage my AirPods, which were FILTHY (unfortunately). However, when I tried it out, it worked really well; you can put a decent amount of pressure and it does not stick to the AirPods at all. It got a LOT of gunk out of the AirPods. I was so shocked. But the best part was that after I used it, my AirPods' SOUND QUALITY was so good?!?!?!?!? It was great. 10/10 I'd recommend this 100%." —NJoshi

    Get 24 from Amazon for $16.99 (also available in a 12-pack).

    12. A pack of two magnetic air fryer cheat sheets for helping you prepare over 100 recipes to the perfect temperature instead of winging it and ending up with a raw dinner. Just stick this on your fridge and have perfectly air-fried food all the time!

    Promising review: “This chart is easy to read and lists most commonly cooked items. Magnet sticks well to my refrigerator so it can be easily accessible when using my air fryer. I have a 1,500-watt fryer and the temps listed are spot on with the quick temps on my fryer.” —N. Nick 

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

    13. A slim tufted storage ottoman that'll fit nicely at the foot of your bed and take care of any extra blankets, pillows, or just the random stuff you don't quite have a place for.

    Promising reviews: "It’s perfect!! Fits on the end of my queen sized bed perfectly. Stored all my extra bedroom clutter inside, and I can sit on it to put my shoes on in the morning. Love it!" —Amanda

    “I originally didn’t want a folding ottoman because I was worried that it would look cheap and it wouldn’t be sturdy enough to hold our average weights. Based off the reviews I went ahead and purchased the 30” ottoman, and we love it! We didn’t crush it when we sat on it, it looks really nice, and there was literally no construction required. I am really really satisfied with this product, and we intend to buy more.” —Derrick Camino 

    Get it from Amazon for $44.46+ (available in four sizes and 12 colors).

    14. A fast-drying top coat spray if your nail polish tends to smudge even when you've left it to dry for 525,600 minutes. Just spray this on, wait 60 seconds, and you'll get the smooth, smudge-proof finish you've been waiting for.

    Promising review: “I have tried everything to get my nails to dry when I paint them at home. I’ve tried top coats, water bath with ice, and time (lots of time) waiting patiently for my nails to dry. And after several hours, my nail polish is always ruined. Today I tried the OPI Rapid Dry spray and my nails dried super quickly! I'm going on two hours after painting my nails, and I've been able to do dishes and laundry. My nails are still dry and look amazing. I highly recommend this product! Thanks OPI!!!!!” —April C.
