We asked the BuzzFeed Community what products make living with roommates a more bearable experience. Here’s how they responded!
A Dohm sound machine to help you create a soothing environment with its natural fan-based ambient sound. Let the sound of rushing air guide you to sleep. I promise it’ll be better than staring at your ceiling while listening to the sound of your roommates making midnight mac ‘n’ cheese…
A bottle of Poo-Pourri so that when you go to the bathroom, you aren’t viscerally reminded that someone else was in there before you…and for a very, very long time.
A dishwasher magnet because reaching in for a clean spoon and pulling out one still covered in peanut butter is not ideal.
A canister of disinfecting Clorox wipes that’ll remove allergens, germs, and messes from your kitchen, bathroom, and wherever else your roomie likes to sneeze without covering their mouth.
A Venmo account so you can safely and securely request that your roommate send you grocery money since they’ve eaten half of what’s on *your* refrigerator shelf.
A pair of noise-cancelling headphones from Skullcandy designed to make you feel like you’re right where the action is, front and center at your favorite band’s concert! Which is perfect because your roomie likes to have their own very loud concert in the shower every morning.
A sheet of sound dampening door bumpers because you shouldn’t have to hear the kitchen cabinets slam shut after every snack choice they make. And they make a lot of snack choices.
A silicone drain catcher so the bathtub never gets clogged up with hair again, turning your shower into an unwanted (and gross) bath.
A powerful cordless Dyson V8 Animal vacuum that deep cleans and picks up pet mess so the fact that your roomie’s cat sheds *everywhere* won’t drive a wedge between you anymore.
A pack of color-coding stickers you’ll each be able to slap onto all of your groceries so no one accidentally drinks Lexi’s almond milk when they have perfectly good oat milk at the back of the fridge.
A Google Chromecast so watching your favorite shows, movies, and videos is as easy as picking up your phone! Stream from your phone in 3…2…1…
A personalized decal because no one knows which Klean Kanteen bottle belongs to who, and that needs to change.
A magnetic dry-erase calendar that you can hang on your fridge (a place everyone goes) so everyone knows when a parent is coming to visit and who is going to clean the kitchen before that happens.
A pair of Samsung Galaxy Buds+ so you can tune into the world of your choosing. With impressive ambient technology, you can even filter in more of the outside world. That way, you know what’s going on in your surroundings while still enjoying Taylor Swift’s new album(s).
