    It's not the size that counts — it's how you use it!

    1. These pocket-sized soap sheets that'll help you keep your hands clean, no matter where you are. No need to worry about leakage or annoying messes — these dry sheets are activated with a little bit of water, which reviewers say makes them amazing for camping and road trips.

    2. An electronics cleaning tool that anyone with tech (aka basically everyone) needs. The brush end will sweep away dust and debris, while the narrow rubberized tip will easily eliminate all the crumbs caught in your keyboard from the last time you ate crackers while binge-watching Netflix.

    4. A pocket-sized bottle of dry shampoo that'll give you some pretty major results. Having this little gem in my bag has saved me from many bad hair days, especially when it's hot and sticky out! It's great for a refresh after a workout, or to fluff up some hat hair, too.

    Reviewers say it leaves a slight white powder after you spritz, but don't fret. Give your hair a shake or brush-through and it'll absorb right into your strands.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $4.97+ (available in two sizes and in the original scent).

    5. This hair-removing tool that'll help eliminate unwanted fuzz with minimum ouch. Reviewers are obsessed with how gentle it is on sensitive skin, and say it doesn't cause annoying ingrown hairs.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $25.79+ (available in five colours).

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $22.97.

    7. This light-blocking eye mask that's specially contoured to block out every distraction. Not only is it engineered to be light and breathable, but the specially-profiled inner pockets will never press on your eyeballs during REM sleep.

    There's even a nifty nose piece that prevents light leakage.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $14.99 (available in two colours).

    8. A couple of beauty product spatulas, so you can get the most out of all your fave skincare. There's nothing worse than tossing out a container with TONS of product still left in it — and who doesn't love saving money on expensive beauty products?

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "The regular spatula is great for medium to large sized bottles like lotion, shampoo, or conditioner. It's long enough to get to the bottom of the containers and the end of the handle is on an angle so you have more control. The mini spatula is perfect for makeup bottles. I used it all the time when the pump on one of my serum bottles stopped working." — Kaysey Davis

    Get an eight-pack on Amazon Canada for $11.99.

    10. This handy little touching tool that'll let you open doors, use ATMs, press elevator buttons, and tap in your credit card PIN without ever touching anything with your hands. It's made of antimicrobial copper and is super lightweight, which means you can stash it in your pocket or attach it to your keys for easy use on the go.

    Victoria Kuglin/BuzzFeed

    It even comes with special attachments that let you use touchscreens, too!

    "I was able to open even the heaviest doors with relative ease, and thanks to the touchscreen tips, I could flip between paying for groceries and answering texts in seconds. Even though I love that the tips are removable (more versatility!), you can also glue them on, like some reviewers did. And thanks to the designers for making the finger loop big enough for all sizes of fingers — even my boyfriend, whose digits are almost twice the size of mine, can comfortably fit them into the loop. What about push doors, you may ask? NOT AN ISSUE! I just attached the silicone tips to the end and used them to gently prod doors open — no slip, no scratches. Push, pull, tap, grab — this lil' guy does it all, and keeps your hands germ free in the process." —Victoria Kuglin

    11. A handy sink sling that'll keep your sponges from getting gunky and protect your counters from sludgy dish water.

Slip it over your faucet, drape it between two kitchen sinks, or even use it in the shower for sudsy loofahs!

    Amazon / Via

    It won't detach or fall (like those suction cup caddies), and it can be moulded and re-moulded a million times to fit your exact needs.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $6+ (available in three colours).

    12. A 2-in-1 cleansing and scrub stick that's packed with coconut and coffee extract and will help fight inflammation while giving your skin a powerful dose of hydration. Reviewers say it foams easily, and leaves their complexions feeling soft and super clean after just a few swipes.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $11.69.

    13. A Scrubbing Bubbles toilet stamp that'll keep your porcelain throne looking (and smelling) fresh as a daisy, while minimizing chore time in the process. And it's super easy to use, too — just stamp it into your toilet bowl and get on with your business!

    Alice Prendergast/BuzzFeed

    Reviewers say they haven't had to clean their toilets as often, which if we're being honest, is just the best. Each pack comes with 24 stamps and each stamp lasts about 12 days.

    Check out BuzzFeed's full review of the Scrubbing Bubbles Fresh Gel Toilet Cleaning Stamp (it's #3 on the list)!

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $9.98.

    14. This body shaver that'll make short work of torso tufts, limb locks, and shoulder strands. This baby works just as well wet or dry, so it's perfect for those last-minute trims when you're halfway out the door and you realize you missed a spot.

    Get a set of two on Amazon Canada for $16.95.

    17. These vacuum seal bottle stoppers that'll keep precious liquids (like wine) tasting fresh long after you've opened the bottle. They're ridiculously easy to use — just pop one of the included stoppers into the open bottle, then use the handheld vacuum to suction out the air and create an airtight seal on the bottle. Done!

    I seem to be totally incapable of finishing an entire bottle of wine, so this will keep that vino fresh until I'm ready to come back for more. Reviewers say it's helped prolong the life of their opened wine by several days!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $9.99+ (available in three colours, and three larger packs).

    19. An mattifying facial roller that'll suck up all the oils on your skin's surface and give your complexion a velvety matte finish. The secret is the volcanic stone that reviewers say is a great environmentally-friendly alternative to classic blotting sheets.

    And don't fret if it gets gunky — simply twist the top to release the stone then give it a scrub with soap and warm water.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $15.28.

    20. A counter squeegee and sweeper, so you can tackle coffee grounds, sugar spills, and cereal crumbs in a flash. Its compact size makes it way less annoying to whip out than a full-size broom, and it's great for tiled countertops, too!

    Amazon / Via

    Reviewers love that it also allows them to get crumbs stuck around the edges of their sink.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $20.46.

    21. These hair coils that are way hardier than ordinary elastics, won't leave bumps in your hair, and will look cute as heck on your wrist. And once they get a little stretched out, just drop them in hot water and watch them shrink right back to their original size.

    Alice Prendergast/BuzzFeed

    "When it comes to hair ties, I'm a pretty picky person. I hate the classic ties that dig into your wrists and I wouldn't be caught dead with a regular ol' elastic in my ponytail. However, my hair is super fine, meaning it slips out of almost anything I put in it, so just any old alternative won't do. Insert: Kitsch hair ties. These coiled ties wrap around my tresses and actually stay put until I'm ready to let down my locks (you know, like Rapunzel). Also, they don't leave indents in my hair, which is a blessing since my hair is very prone to getting bent out of shape." —Alice Prendergast

    Check out BuzzFeed's full review of the Kitsch hair coils (they're #13).

    Get a set of eight from Amazon Canada for $9.99.

    Get a four-pack on Amazon Canada for $19.99.

    23. This translucent finishing powder that'll not only mattify your complexion, but also help turn your face into a poreless, smooth wonder. Reviewers are obsessed with its impressive staying power and say it's better than other similar products they've tried.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $27.50+ (available in two shades).

    24. A compact hair dryer that'll pack easily into your bag for impromptu sleepovers. It may look small, but this baby is mighty! Reviewers say it's super quiet, ultra lightweight, and holds its own against other, high-end versions at a fraction of the cost.

    26. These awesome webcam covers that'll fit on basically all your devices and keep you protected from hackers and peeping Toms.

    Amazon / Via

    Reviewers love that they're super low profile and easy to install, too!

    Get a set of three on Amazon Canada for $7.29+ (also available in a set of six).

    27. This mini steam iron that'll work just as effectively as its full-sized counterpart — without taking up all the space. This baby heats up in just 15 seconds, which is awesome if you're halfway out the door and realize that your shirt is unforgivably wrinkly.

    Amazon / Via

    Reviewers love the rubberized grip on the base, which prevents the iron from sliding off your clothes. There's even a steam function to help eliminate stubborn wrinkles.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $42.64.

    28. A sleep aid metronome that'll help you doze off in the blink of an eye. Using a neat lil' light projection, it'll help you slow down your breathing and calm your pulse — creating optimal conditions for falling into a deep, relaxing slumber.

    Worried about intrusive thoughts? Following the contraction and expansion of the light projection is an easy way to distract your brain from thinking about your to-do list (or anything else).

    Reviewers are totally obsessed! They've used it while camping, staying in hotel rooms, or just at the office, and they all agree that this gadget may be small, but it's mighty.

    "I know I'm not alone in not washing my makeup brushes as often as I should. It takes forever, and even once I'm done cleaning them, I still have to let them dry overnight. But this spinning makeup brush cleaner has totally changed the game. I cleaned and dried all of my makeup brushes in under ten minutes. Now I'll actually clean them on the regular." ⁠—Kat Angus

    34. This magical detangling brush that works on all hair types (yes, even curly). The cone-shaped bristles actually glide through hair and gently separate it, rather than pulling, tugging, snagging, or breaking your strands.

    @cravenaturals / Via, @cravenaturals / Via

    Reviewers say it takes them minutes, rather than hours, to detangle their strands. One reviewer said it's even great for brushing out wigs!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $17.35+ (available in five colours).

    35. This anti-blister balm that'll keep chafing, rubbing, and raw skin at bay.

    36. Some silicone face scrubbies that'll amp up the efficacy of your cleanser and help you waste less product in the process. These lightweight pads have silky-soft bristles that won't irritate sensitive skin, and feature a handy suction cup handle, so it won't slip out of your hand the next time you're performing your ablutions.

    Victoria Kuglin/BuzzFeed

    "There's literally nothing about these soft scrubbies that I don't love. The bristles are super delicate, which means I don't feel like I'm sloughing my face with steel wool every night. There's also a small section of silicone nodes that are great at massaging away stubborn makeup. I've also noticed that I only need about half as much product as I'd normally use to clean my face — a true blessing for anyone who enjoys saving a bit of money each month. And they're just a really easy way to incorporate gentle facial massage into my routine! I spend just a little more time than usual washing my face (because it feels so dang good!), which in turn helps to relax my facial muscles, and leads to fewer headaches and less jaw tension. And truly, a relaxed face is a happy face! And if that's not enough to convince you to switch immediately to these scrubbies, my skincare-averse boyfriend is suddenly ~really~ into washing his face, too. Coincidence? I think not." —Victoria Kuglin

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $44.96+ (available in four styles and two purchasing options).

    38. A double compartment bra wash bag that'll help you get your titty holder squeaky clean. The contoured shape helps keep the cups from getting smooshed or damaged, and reviewers say they're spacious enough to fit larger bras, too.

    Get a pair on Amazon Canada for $39.95 (available in three colours).

    40. Some reusable interdental flossers that'll help get gunk and plaque from between your chompers without making your gums bleed in the process. They're also amazing for those of us with permanent retainers, because let's be honest — navigating some floss in there is a real nightmare.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    "Flossing with permanent retainers is a difficult task, and these little doodads make the process so much less of a hassle. They easily slide under my wires and unstick pesky things (like popcorn kernels) without much work. I don't know what magic they were blessed with, but they don't make my gums bleed the way regular floss does, either (I have a very sensitive mouth). One last thing: they're über flexible, but don't break easily, so you can do a bit of brushing between your teeth without worrying about the bristles snapping off." —Alice Prendergast

    It's also a fantastic tool to have if your hands are covered in kitchen goop and you're struggling to pop open that container of pasta sauce.

    45. A pack of light-dimming stickers that'll help soften the glare on your light-up gadgets (so you can finally get some rest). The best part is that they won't block out the light entirely, so you'll still be able to read your alarm clock in the middle of the night.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "Buying these light-dimming stickers was the best money I've spent in a while. I just popped them onto my devices and the lights were instantly duller. They come in a variety of different shapes and sizes, making it easy to find the perfect one for each device. I can still see that the lights are on, but they're not nearly as annoying." —Kaysey Davis
