An audio adapter to magic your old car into your own personal DJ. This will let you blast your “socially-distanced BOPS” playlist through your car by pairing your old speakers with Bluetooth, an AUX cable, or TF card.

Amazon

It’ll also let you answer calls at the touch of a button, and is designed to easily let you skip or pause through songs.

Promising review: “The CD player on my 2002 Yukon isn’t working anymore but it also doesn’t have an aux port for music or Bluetooth. I got the unit and it instantly paired with my iPhone SE and in just a minute or so I was playing all the music from my phone through the radio in my car. It pairs automatically after the initial setup and the sound is really nice. If you play music while you have the GPS going, the music volume will go down when instructions are being given on where to turn, a nice touch! So far I am really pleased with the performance and now I can answer calls hands-free and listen to all my downloaded music!” —JRH

A painless, mint-flavored teeth-whitening pen for sensitive teeth and gums that’s basically like a magic marker to lighten up years’ worth of stains from coffee, tea, wine, or just … you know. Existing as a human with teeth.


Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

^^ That is my human face making that awkward “look at my teeth!!” grimace up there. I am very vigilant about using teeth whitening toothpaste twice a day, but it’s truly no match for my tea/dessert consumption, I suppose. I used this pen maybe five times over the course of a week in between the before and after on this (you’re supposed to use it more often than that, but I am lazy and forgetful). It didn’t irritate my gums and all, it doesn’t have a weird after taste, and it’s also just, like. FAST. I wasn’t expecting to see results so quickly. I use the pen once or twice a week now just to maintain it. Very little hassle and extremely worth the money.

A microwave pasta maker to bring you the glory of your favorite carbohydrate by literally just pressing a button on the microwave and walking away.

A rectangular transparent holder for pasta with water in it getting set and strained out


Amazon

Promising review: “This is a fantastic product. I’ve been cooking for more than 50 years. Pasta has always been a simple go-to dinner for me. Tending to the boiling pot of pasta was just part of the process. I’ve been getting tired of cooking as I’ve aged. This simple little microwave pasta cooker has simplified cooking so much more than I could have imagined. Seems silly, but it’s kinda like a little miracle. No more toting a heavy pot to the stove. No more pouring pasta and boiling water into a colander. It’s simple, lightweight, and foolproof. You’ll never regret buying this. I suggest buying the larger size to have more portion options.” —Winky

A bottle of Drop It, a natural wine sulfate and tannin remover that basically makes “not getting a hangover” your new superpower.

Reviewer image of glass of red wine with a bottle of Drop It, along with a caption explaining that it's been working


amazon.com

It’s also a lot more cost-effective and environmentally-friendly than wine wands or other competitors — a single bottle of this can be used to treat up to 55 glasses of wine, as opposed to wands that can only do a few glasses each before they get tossed. Drop It recommends 1-2 drops for each glass of white wine, 2-3 for a glass of red, and 7-9 if you’re treating the whole bottle at once. Once it’s in the glass, swirl lightly for 20 seconds, and you should be raring to go!

Promising review: “For many years, I have been that friend who always says ‘no thanks, I can’t drink wine.’ Even one small small glass would give me the worst migraine. So I gave up. Several weeks ago, I happened across an ad for Drop It and thought I might as well give it a shot. I took a big risk the day it arrived and had two huge glasses of red wine that I knew would give me a massive migraine the next day. It just so happened I had a midterm that next morning too — so the stakes were high. I woke up feeling fantastic. Since then I have repeated the experiment (to make sure it wasn’t a fluke) and found that no matter how much wine I drink, as long as I use the drops, I don’t have a migraine the next day. I’m so pleased to have found something that makes wine drinking possible and enjoyable again! I have nothing but great things to say about the product. It’s easy to use and very discreet. I visited some friends last week and we spent a few hours at a wine bar. It was easy to add my drops. I took a small taste of the wine before adding the drops and found that it did not alter the taste at all. Thanks for a great product and a great buying experience. I will be back for more.” —Mackenzie

A super-soft Makeup Eraser to wipe makeup right off your face like a human whiteboard, using nothing but water and a gentle scrub. I’ve been using one for a few months now and it has *drastically* cut down my routine and saved money on makeup remover.


amazon.com, Amazon

It’s got two sides — one that can wipe off all your makeup with water and a light scrubbing, and another that exfoliates your skin. Plus, all you have to do when you’re done using it is wet it and hang it up to dry! No more wasting money on icky washcloths that hurt your skin!!! I can hear your pores singing from here.

Promising review: “This did exactly what it claims to do, I use some warm water on a little part and my whole makeup comes off, even mascara! I used to always buy makeup wipes and this has saved me so much money. I just throw it in with the laundry and it’s perfect. I’ve been using it for over six months now and it hasn’t failed me at all, it’s worth the money!!” —Sharmin Rahman

A hands-free grocery carrier that will make an entire massive grocery haul feel as manageable as a backpack, without requiring you to channel The Rock to get your LaCroix load in the door.


Amazon

Promising review: “I’ve tried so many different products that are supposed to allow you to carry multiple bags at once, but nothing has worked as well as this! It’s easy to use: Just hold one end of the handle and thread the other end through the handles on the bags. Then you can either bring the two ends of the Grocery Gripps carrier together to carry the bags with a single handle, or place one end of the carrier through the other to carry the bags over your shoulder. Carrying the bags over my shoulder worked really well for me because it allowed me to spread the weight of the bags over my hips and back instead of taking all the weight on my shoulder. I initially balked at the expense of this product, but it’s very well made and sturdy and really makes our lives easier. It’s worth the money.” —S. Hill

A set of Bottle Bright tablets so you can tackle all those caked-on stains in your bottles, travel mugs, and even coffee makers without scrubbing them into eternity and wasting a small ocean’s worth of hot water.

amazon.com

Promising review: “I seriously can’t believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting Hydro Flask coffee mug; I tried everything — bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING — and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER Hydro Flask to replace it. Eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand-new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much that I used it on another Hydro Flask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn’t put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING.” —Amazon Customer

The before image of a stained wooden cabinet and an after image of it restored

Promising review: “This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn-out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs who jumped up and scratched places; we also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were, and several other areas that were just worn from heavy traffic. Take a look at the pictures to see the before-and-afters. This stuff was like a Magic Eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let it sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand-new. I’m buying a couple more so we can finish our cabinets and wood paneling. We’re so glad we found this product.” —Kris

A pack of NeuroGum made with a blend of caffeine and nootropics, designed to give you energy five times faster than regular coffee — without jitters or sluggishness afterward. All of the zing, none of the crash (or 15 midafternoon trips to the bathroom!!).


Kayla Suazo/BuzzFeed

Here’s what one BuzzFeed editor had to say: “It’s literally gum with 40 milligrams of caffeine (about half the amount of caffeine in an average cup of coffee), so it’s great to chew throughout the afternoon without having to worry about it keeping you up at night. It also has 60 milligrams of L-theanine, which is the main amino acid in green tea, so you get a natural energy boost without all the sugars that you’d find in energy drinks. THIS MEANS NO JITTERS. NO CRASHING. Just a good ole boost of energy. I was skeptical about this gum at first. I thought there was no way gum could wake me from my afternoon lull and increase my attention so I could get more work done. Guys, I was wrong. This stuff works, and works well. I even gave some to my coworkers, who said they noticed a difference immediately after chewing it. Around 2 p.m., I pop a piece in (I looove the cinnamon flavor) and I have an instant energy boost. It’s magic. There are nine pieces in a pack and I chew about one a day, so an entire box lasts me a month — which isn’t bad considering that it literally gives me life every single day. It’s gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, vegan, and non-GMO, and I think it’s a way better option than energy drinks.”

A combination sleep mask with wireless headphones so you can achieve Supreme Sleep and listen to white noise, audiobooks, or music *and* completely block out light at the same time. Bonus: it’s designed to work for side sleepers, and the inside is contoured with a cooling memory foam so you don’t feel pressure on your eyes, either.

A dual hair dryer and brush to dry your hair as you style it and give your ‘do an incredible amount of volume and shine, without the cost of a pricey blowout.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Unlike other hairdryers, this one can be held closer to the roots and scalp for a higher volume and lift, and helps you curl hair at the end while it dries. It comes with three heat settings and is designed to work on all hair textures — reviewers with 2A through 4C hair mentioned it working for them, and especially noted that it helps cut down on drying time!

Promising review: “OK. I never write Amazon reviews which isn’t cool since I rely on them so much … but I just had to write one for this!!! So my BFF has been trying to talk me into this for dryer for a while. I have REALLY thick, wavy, frizzy hair that never dries pretty naturally. I either get blow outs or spend about 20 minutes blow-drying my hair and THEN flat iron it. So I finally caved and tried this dryer for the first time last week. I started out with pretty wet hair and product in it. About 90% of the way into the dry, I thought it was OK…but then everything came together. My hair was straight, smooth, and styled in about 10 minutes tops. I couldn’t believe it. I immediately called my friend who told me to try it with my hair almost air dried. WHAT? So I did it the next time and again…WOW! This time I dried my hair in about three minutes…not as straight and smooth as the first time but pretty darn close. This dryer is a GAME-CHANGER. I can’t believe the amount of money I’m going to save on blow outs!!! My BFF said it’s also great for bedhead and quick touchups too. Can’t wait. TRY IT…you won’t be disappointed!!!” —Ann

Promising review: “OK. I never write Amazon reviews which isn’t cool since I rely on them so much … but I just had to write one for this!!! So my BFF has been trying to talk me into this for dryer for a while. I have REALLY thick, wavy, frizzy hair that never dries pretty naturally. I either get blow outs or spend about 20 minutes blow-drying my hair and THEN flat iron it. So I finally caved and tried this dryer for the first time last week. I started out with pretty wet hair and product in it. About 90% of the way into the dry, I thought it was OK…but then everything came together. My hair was straight, smooth, and styled in about 10 minutes tops. I couldn’t believe it. I immediately called my friend who told me to try it with my hair almost air dried. WHAT? So I did it the next time and again…WOW! This time I dried my hair in about three minutes…not as straight and smooth as the first time but pretty darn close. This dryer is a GAME-CHANGER. I can’t believe the amount of money I’m going to save on blow outs!!! My BFF said it’s also great for bedhead and quick touchups too. Can’t wait. TRY IT…you won’t be disappointed!!!” —Ann

A ring size adjuster for loose rings so you can finally go HAM at secondhand stores, buying baubles even if they don’t *quite* fit when you first try them on.


Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

As you can see, this is my own human hand pictured above. I’m obsessed with jewelry retailer Local Eclectic, but my ring finger is between two of their sizes — enter this plastic coil, which made up the size difference in the hottest second.

Promising review: “I’ve been holding off on getting my ring resized and decided to do something temporary till then. These are perfect! They came with a bunch of different sizes, and you only use a small amount of the one you need. If I end up needing it tighter again, I can swap it out for a larger coil. They are really easy to put on, and I hardly feel it at all on my finger. I’m not sure how long they will last because I haven’t had it for long, but it comes with enough extra that it would be easy to swap out if they don’t hold up.” —Charet

Promising review: “This thing is a miracle-worker! I’m a little ashamed to say that getting my ring cleaned had become low priority in the past eight or so years — kids, moving, etc., took the top spots. My ring was so dirty that I was starting to worry that if I took it somewhere to clean it, they’d be disgusted! I randomly saw this product mentioned by someone as a way to shine up their ring occasionally. I bought because it was pretty cheap, and why not take a chance? I soaked my ring in some warm water and dish soap for about half an hour, then took it out and started using the stick on it. I should’ve taken a picture of all of the gunk I got out of the crevices! I went over it thoroughly and then rinsed it off, OMG! My husband said he could see it sparkling from across the room and said maybe he needed to use it on his ring now! It’s been about a month since I’ve last done it, and it’s only now starting to lose some of its sparkle. Very long-lasting!” —Browns

Promising review: “I researched so many coffee warmers and am so glad I decided on this one. It definitely keeps my coffee hot, no matter how long it takes me to drink it. I also like that it has three settings. As you drink down your coffee, you can lower the heat because it keeps the coffee very hot.

amazon.com

Promising review: “Saved me from buying a new dishwasher!I have to admit that I was skeptical that this product was actually going to do anything. I’ve noticed my dishwasher wasn’t cleaning dishes very well lately, and I did everything I could to get it working properly again, but was ready to finally give up and buy a new dishwasher. I bought these tablets thinking they were designed to eliminate odors, but I was willing to give them a shot before buying a whole new dishwasher. I put one in the bottom of the dishwasher last night per the instructions and woke up to completely clean dishes for the first time in weeks. They look perfect.

Fellow BuzzFeed staffer Natalie Brown tried these on strawberries and spinach and literally called them a “miracle.”

Promising review: “I was skeptical at first. What kind of witchcraft could these small plastic bins be born from that would make them somehow extend the life of our otherwise short-lived produce? Well, let me tell you — if it was witchcraft that produced these containers, then call the Sanderson sisters and get them rolling on another batch! Down here in southeastern Virginia, the produce is terrible! We couldn’t get strawberries to last for more than three or four days. They’re so much cheaper to buy in the large containers, but then we had to eat them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner just to make sure they were gone before they started to get too soft and juicy. I was beginning to dislike strawberries. And that, ladies and gentlemen, would be a crime in and of itself. But along came these wonderful containers. They more than doubled the life of our berries, allowing me to once again think to myself, Eh, maybe this meal I will have kiwi.” —Michael Territo

A fume-free oven cleaner so gentle enough you can skip the protective gloves, but tough enough that it’ll loosen up all the old caked-on stains from that time you fell asleep while cooking pizza rolls, sparing you *tons* of cleaning prep shenanigans.


amazon.com

Promising review: “Mine just came in the mail today and I used it right away — it works fantastically! My oven is an electric, probably slightly on the older side, and has been badly stained since before I moved into my current unit. I have tried everything I could think of to get it clean prior to finding this product and nothing worked. But after doing the two hour treatment it is almost all gone but for a few small specs here and there. I have just sprayed it again to see if those will come off too without an overnight treatment (just out of curiosity, it’s perfectly clean as it is). I would recommend this product to anyone that wants an oven cleaner that works and is easy to use.” —Lis Zupp

Promising review: “I’ve had this alarm clock for about a month or two now. I was having issues waking up and getting motivated to get out of bed when it was early in the morning and really cold. I had low expectations, since it was so cheap. I was hoping that it would at least keep the correct time and turn on every morning, but I have been blown away by this little thing. It reliably connects to Wi-Fi and can be controlled with your phone! It can get the time from the internet, so it never runs fast or slow. There are so many different settings to use, but I do 10 minutes of sunrise before the alarm (the shortest amount of time). By the time the alarm goes off, my room is bright enough for me to feel motivated to get up at 5:30 a.m.” —Emass24

A detangling brush with an easy-to-hold handle that’s so effective on all hair types that it’s amassed over 20,000 5-star reviews on Amazon — people swear by it for detangling fast without pulling on or damaging hair (or buying an entire shelf’s worth of detangling creams that never *quite* do the trick).

This brush is designed to work on all hair types, but reviewers with 2C through 4C hair say it has worked well for them. It also works on wet *and* dry hair, so you don’t have to time out your brushing.

Promising review: “My daughter has a lot of hair that tangles very easily. Her knots get so bad that they needed to be cut from her head at times and even after cut those knots would not come undone despite pulling with all of our might. To me that was evidence that her hair is just impossible. Then we came across this brush. We saw a commercial for a different brand but when I logged onto Amazon I saw that this brush had far better reviews and has been around for quite some time. I ordered it and was not sure what to expect as many other detangling brushes simply failed even after adding large amounts of leave in conditioner and detangling spray to her hair. Lo and behold, this brush does as it promises. IT WORKS! My daughter went from dreading getting her hair brushed to doing it herself. She is 5 and says, this brush is relaxing. I highly recommend this product. It will save you time, money and sanity. It should say NO MORE TEARS FOR PARENT AND CHILD.” —Nicole W.

This item fit the bill. I like the tropical scent. I have one of these in the bathroom and one in the living room. The batteries last a long time — months. You can set the sprayer to spray with different frequencies. I use every 30 minutes usually, but you can adjust that. The sprayer dispenser is attractive enough to place out on a table.

A beauty spatula to rescue that last lil’ bit of foundation that no amount of wrestling with nozzles or the pull of gravity will free. It’s been a lifetime of lost .05-ounce foundation scams, but now you can OUT-SCAM THE SCAM!!

Promising review: “I bought this a while ago because while I loved using Tarte Shape Tape foundation, I felt like there was often too much product I couldn’t reach using the built in applicator. Each bottle is 1 ounce, and I had five ’empties’ to test this spatula on. I got so much product out of these old bottles that I had to stop before finishing every bottle. My 2-ounce container is practically overflowing! Thanks to this little spatula, I now have two full bottles worth of foundation potted to use. The spatula is pointed and I think for these bottles a square shaped spatula would have been more efficient, but nevertheless the deed is done! So impressed! (And, considering the cost of each bottle, I saved about $70 worth of foundation that I love and is no longer being sold!)”Krystal
