    32 Products Reviewers Say Work Pretty Darn Quickly

    No long waits necessary.

    1. 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.

    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. But 10 minutes later, I have a new-looking bowl, and I see no signs of scratching." —Happy Retiree

    Promising review: "This detangled my hair in seconds. I have very tangled hair but this only takes about two to three strokes and that side/knot is out!!! You finish your hair in minutes. Very extremely knotty hair will take about 7 to 15 minutes, but if you have only a knot and other little knots, it only takes about two to five minutes!" —Naomi

    Promising review: "I swear by these plant food spikes!!! The package says they are for indoor plants, but I actually use them for all of my outdoor plants, especially my herbs. I first tried these after planting some basil and other herbs that seemed to be taking an eternity to grow. I went to a local home improvement store and searched the garden center for plant food but many of them were priced much higher than I was willing to spend until I found these spikes. I figured I'd give them a try since they were so inexpensive and wow!!!!! Within just a few days, my plants had grown more than double what they had grown in the previous several weeks!!" —GatorDO17

    Just be sure to take the necessary precaution when dealing with this chemical product.

    Promising review: "This cleaner was better than I even expected. It was kind of hard to find, not sure if they just changed the name but the heavy duty one is what I wanted. I followed the directions for the fast clean; my oven was a baked on destroyed mess. This had been from years of renters. It was hard to spray, and I had to shake it a lot to get it to come out as strong as I wanted. But once I got a full coat on everything, I let sit for about five to seven minutes and wiped it off with EASE. I didn’t even need to scrub. It’s a lot of work to clean an oven, and this made it easier than ever before." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.49.

    9. Or 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: “After one day and one application, my cat Gandalf saw better results than with vet-prescribed meds. He was in bad condition when we adopted him, so we took him to the vet and we learned he had a severe skin yeast infection. The meds they prescribed didn't help, so I tried this in a last-ditch effort to help him and WOW! Finally my poor boy isn't constantly licking or scratching until he bleeds. He isn't licking it at all!! His open wounds are finally scabbing over, and he slept the entire day and night as if he finally felt relief.” —Joshua and Michele

Do yourself a favor and buy one for yourself, one for your babes, and one for the expectant mama in your life as a wonderful baby shower or postpartum gift!!” —Amanda Valdovinos

    Promising review: "This is a fantastic product. I sprayed it on my old brick exterior steps that are under trees, and wow! Within two minutes I could see immediate results. They haven't looked that good in over 20 years. I then sprayed a paver walkway and had the same results! I had some left over and sprayed the green moss covering my large deck, and it was gone instantly. I'm now ordering another one and then I'm heading out to the driveway and brick walls bordering it. Thanks for making my life a little easier." —Beverly Mabbitt
