    1. A pack of produce-saving sheets that'll stop your fruits and veggies from spoiling. They work their magic by absorbing moisture and best of all, can be cut to fit smaller drawers and containers.

    Reviewers say it's a must-have for any novice gardener and has helped take the guesswork out of plant care. I love that it also comes with a handy guide to watering for 200 plants, so I don't have to remember a ton of factoids about every single one of my plant babies.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $18.99.

    6. One of these body deodorants that's designed to keep your dingleberries fresh, dry, and totally chafe free. It's less messy than talc or other powdery products and won't stain your pantaloons, either.

    20. This face mask spray that'll freshen up stinky face coverings in a flash. The blend of all-natural essential oils won't infuse your mask with gross chemical smells (though you should still throw your face masks in the wash regularly to get them thoroughly clean!).

    A quick spritz of this lavender-scented spray was enough to banish any unpleasant smells — not to mention that the addition of tea tree oil makes it naturally anti-septic. Sensitive to scents? Thankfully, the smell softens really quickly, so you won't get an annoying headache the next time you mask up. The ultra-fine mist means you won't end up with a soggy face covering, either!

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $15.99.

    21. 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 light as a feather, too, so it won't weigh you down when you're out and about.

    Victoria Kuglin/BuzzFeed

    I was able to open even the heaviest doors with relative ease, and thanks to the silicone touchscreen tips, I could flip between paying for groceries and answering texts in seconds. What about push doors, you may ask? NOT AN ISSUE! I just attached the 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.

    23. A trio of cookware protectors that'll keep your pots and pans from getting dinged in your cupboards. Reviewers like that they're stiffer than other protectors, which means they won't curl or break under the weight of your cookware.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $19.99.

    25. This dog-walking cap with built-in LED lights that'll be an absolute blessing on those late-night (or early morning) dog walks. The lights are mounted on the brim, so you won't accidentally step in your pupper's poops.

    26. And lastly, a plush facecloth that’ll remove all your makeup with just a bit of H2O. Reviewers say it even tackles waterproof makeup with ease and leaves their skin feeling soft and residue free.
