A pair of hooks for your AirPods to stop them from slip n’ sliding right out of your ears, then onto the sidewalk, then somehow rolling into traffic, then under the wheel of a Ford Explorer, and — well. If you’re constantly readjusting your AirPods cuz you have sweaty ears like mine, you get the gist.

These also work great for wired EarPods!

Promising review: “Couldn’t be happier with my purchase! I’ve never been able to wear EarPods because they always fell out. These Earhoox have completely solved that problem.

A sparkling-wine saver that will keep your bubblies bubbling so you can pop your prosecco any day of the week without resigning yourself to wasting the leftovers.

A model sealing and then pumping the saver cap on a bottle of wine


Amazon / Via amazon.com

I purchased one of these at the aggressive behest of a friend, and it’s LEGIT. I told myself I was a Red Wine Lady my whole life because it was easier to save for later, but now that I don’t live in constant fear of wasting the bubbly stuff, I am an All Wine Lady and have finally achieved my truest form.

Promising review: “This product was a real surprise for me, I was never able to keep my bubblies as fresh and bubbly after the first opening. Three days later, and my expensive Brut tastes just as nice. Frankly, this is probably going to become my go-to gift from now on… pair a nice bottle to it and voila! Thumbs up!” —RonBY

And a beauty spatula that’ll 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!!


amazon.com

Promising review: “I used this spatula to entirely use up a glass jar of foundation. I got four full face applications out of the remainder that wouldn’t come out before. It’s flexible to reach the corners and long enough to reach the bottom. Since I won’t need it for foundation for a while I may use it to more hygienically scoop moisturizer out of a jar instead of using my hands.” —J fox

A six-outlet wall charger designed specifically for larger chargers that also comes equipped with two USB fast-charging ports *and* a nightlight, so you can get rid of that ugly power strip on the floor you keep tripping on by your bed in the middle of the night.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review:Excellent design that solved my long-term issue! I have a corner wall outlet where we plug in digital clock, table lamp, computer charger and cell phone chargers. For a long time we have been using an outlet extender strip, which has a thick long line laying on the floor. Even with the multiple outlets the extender provided, we sometimes still need to unplug and re-plug some chargers because they have big head that occupies multiple outlet spaces. Surprisingly, this relatively small device provides large space on the side which can easily fit two big head chargers, USB outlet saves you another charger head space, and the night light function makes it easy for you to see the outlets in dark corners or at night. This product is a perfect space saver for office and entertainment areas for your home. Thumbs up!” —LawSchoolStudent2L

JK Vinyl & Wood Design is family-owned Etsy shop established in 2016 that specializes in home items like mugs, signs, decals, earrings, and more.

Promising review: “This actually is working!!! UPS and Fedex quit ringing my doorbell! I’ve had a sign up for two years not to ring my doorbell because it makes my dog bark/baby sleeping… and no one paid attention to it and still was ringing the doorbell. I’m running meetings everyday during the lunch hour which is exactly when fedex and ups come.. and exactly when my dog goes nuts. Usually I’d let him out for the meetings but sometimes they won’t leave my packages if it’s not my regular drivers that know my dog. Anyway! They finally quit ringing my doorbell! Yay!!! And the sign is pretty! And easy to see and read!” —Andrea Lee

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. That chronic 3 p.m. slump when you suddenly have the attention span of a goldfish just met its match.


Kayla Suazo/BuzzFeed

Promising review: “As a medical student this has been an amazing addition to my daily study regimen. Same amazing boost as the Diet Coke and coffee I used to chug, but without the jitters, crash/headache, or teeth staining.

A memory foam seat cushion for your tushy so effective at relieving pressure from your tailbone and back that you might not even realize how *much* of a problem you have with your current chair setup until you get that sweet, sweet relief.

Gray memory seat cushion fitted on a rolling chair


amazon.com

Promising review: “This seat cushion is SO GOOD. I have had a lot of problems with pressure on my tailbone and resulting back problems, and they’ve been getting worse. I will be honest, I have only tried the old-fashioned medical donuts, so I don’t have much to compare it to. However, this cushion is nicely thick, and the cutout and contours are so perfect and they take all pressure off my tailbone. After working for a few hours, I got up and for the first time in almost a year, didn’t have pain. Normally, the pressure on my tailbone becomes pretty bad while sitting, but produces an even sharper pain upon standing. Feeling so great for the first time prompted me to buy another for work so I could keep this one at home and never be without it! Hopefully, reducing the pressure on my tailbone will also help it heal, but even being free from pain is wonderful.” —CSC

An internet-beloved time-marked water bottle you can get in a bajillion different colors to remind you to stay hydrated during the day, so you can finally stop halfheartedly chugging water at the end of it and then waking up to pee three times a night.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I love the finish on the bottle! I hate holding wet water bottles and this does NOT sweat! It also holds two full bottles of 16.9-oz. packages water bottles so it’s very easy to get my full water intake on the go! Easy to carry, fits in my car’s cup holders perfectly (not big at all like some water bottles). I got the ombré purple to teal and it’s very true to color. Easy to clean, wide enough for bottle brushes, and the straw stays put. I also love how I just push the little button by the mouthpiece and it just pops open quick for easy drinking (if you’re driving and don’t need to be messing around opening bottles😉). Highly recommend this water bottle. For the price, it’s amazing! Keeps my water cool for hours too.” —Alicia

Rexipets is a Utah-based small business that specializes in products for easier, safer pet grooming.

Promising review: “This works very well for my Golden Retriever and Husky. Both are very big dogs and scared of getting their nails trimmed. The Rexipets grinder is quiet and easy to use. I expected the battery to die and need charging after one dog, but I was able to trim them both. The great features allow me to be comfortable when taking care of my pets and that puts them at ease as well. I highly recommend!” —Robert

An insulated soundproofing strip that easily sticks to the outer rims of your door so you no longer have to fall asleep to sound of your roommate loudly recording a podcast with someone over Skype.


amazon.com

Psst — this insulated strip also stops air conditioning from escaping out of the crack under the door, saving energy and money!

Promising review: “I came across this blessing in disguise after being completely FED UP with noise from my siblings in my house when I’m trying to sleep for work the next day. I bought sound proof padding as you would use in a studio, it helped, but not that much. Not actually realizing that it’s not really the door I have to worry about… IT’S AROUND THE DOOR. It never dawned on me to look into door sealing options. MANNNN this is everything I needed. I followed the instructions although I already knew what to do with it, the glue is very adhesive, it really has a true feeling of what I would expect this product to feel like. I quickly installed it and EUREKA. IT WORKS, it does not budge or move regardless of how hard my door closes. I was listening to my sibling take a phone call when the door was open then after I was done, I closed the door and POOF, noise no more!” —Bobby

Promising review: “I am so happy to have found this gorgeous chain for my mask wearing! It is light weight and functional. The color is fabulous and it works well to keep my mask with me. Clear instructions came with the item and how to attach it to the face covering as well as cleaning. No more forgetting my mask in the car when I head into the shopping arena.

A sunrise simulation clock to trick your human brain into thinking you’re already dappled in the light of a bright, sunshiny day when you wake up, even if you’re up before the sunrise or nowhere near a window.

A sunrise alarm clock in three stages of lighting up from dim to brighter to brightest over the course of a half hour


Amazon

You can sync this alarm clock with an app on your phone (or with an Alexa or Google Home), and it will gradually brighten the room with red-tinted light designed to fight grogginess in the minutes leading up to your wakeup. By the time your alarm goes off, your eyes will have already adjusted to the “daylight,” so you won’t be as tempted to hit snooze. It also has customizable sounds to wake you up, like “Hawaiian waves.”

Promising review: “Best purchase ever! I’ve been staying with my parents since this whole COVID thing happened and my room is in the basement with no windows so it’s hard to tell what time of day it is. This has helped me get up in the mornings at my normal time.” —Megan Smith

*Another* promising review: “I used this to help my daughter get re-adjusted to waking up earlier. Since COVID-19 she had been sleeping in since March to 11am! Now that school has started again the light has helped her to make the transition from waking up at 6 a.m.. This has helped greatly to make it easier for her to adjust back to her old sleep schedule.” —Tiffany Morales

A bottle of paleo-friendly, gluten-free avocado hot sauce so you can add a bit of savory and a kick of spice to save all those at-home meals you’ve been making that have gotten a little, well, boring. (No offense to microwave pizza! She’s trying her best.)

Avocado hot sauce bottle and a pita with sauce in it


Amazon

The question is less what can you put it on and more what *can’t* you put it on. Reviewers mention salads, burritos, eggs, burgers, sandwiches, and steak. Psst — it’s also keto-friendly and gluten-free, if you have any dietary preferences or restrictions!

Promising review: “So good. Favorable and just a mild hot, it’s really good on anything that needs a little something — eggs, beans and rice, etc. Not a ‘hot sauce’ as much as a flavor enhancer. And, name aside, not really avocado in flavor; the avocado base just provides a little creamier, smoother, richer base for the spiciness. I can see people who don’t like avocados still liking this sauce.” —Jennifer

A popular streak-free anti-fog spray you can quickly apply to eyeglasses, sunglasses, and face shields to prevent them from fogging up while you’re wearing a mask.


amazon.com, amazon.com

A heads up that this works *super* well for some reviewers, but not all — note that this is meant for non antireflective-coated lenses, and the instructions for use are very specific. To apply, spray a small amount on both sides of your lenses, and use your fingers to rub it across the whole area. Let it sit for a full minute, then wipe with a dry soft cloth. Once they’re fully dry, you should be raring to go!

Promising review: “I have tried everything to keep my glasses from fogging with my mask and this product is by far the best. I’m sorry I waited so long to purchase it. I live in the Florida Keys and do a lot of diving and snorkeling and it works fabulous for my dive mask also. I would highly recommend Optix 55 fog gone. Great price, also I think this bottle will last a very long time.” —Bebe

A suuuper popular Bio-Oil made with vitamins A and E, chamomile, and lavender — you may recognize it as a product a lot of people use to help fade scars (both old and new), soothe cracked and dry skin, and help moisturize without affecting your pores, but people are also using it in quarantine to help with dry and painful skin on their hands from hand-washing and sanitizing.

FWIW re: scars, though, this stuff really works. I had thyroid surgery a few years ago and Bio-Oil took me from looking like I’d stumbled out of the Red Wedding to virtually no detectable scar within a few months. All I did was apply it once in the morning and once at night.

Promising review: “I bought this for my scars but because of the current Covid-19 crisis I have been washing my hands so much that they are painfully dry. Hand cream hasn’t helped enough so I decided to use the Bio-Oil on them and even after the first application they felt SO much better! I’m glad I bought the big bottle!” —L. Strand

Promising review: “I have several houseplants that had stopped flowering, so I put a few of these spikes in the pot (there are directions on the back of the package for quantity), and approximately a month after I used these spikes, my peace lily had three flowers on it, and my African violets plants all got several blooms on them! This also worked wonders for my plants that don’t flower! I noticed that my ivy and cactus plants started growing faster, and they became greener and healthier looking.

A compact Bluetooth-enabled treadmill so small you can actually — gasp?? — do a workout in your studio apartment. This compact lil’ bb folds for easy, lightweight storage right under your bed. No muss, no fuss, just steps!


Chelsea Stuart / BuzzFeed, Treadly

Promising review: “The versatile treadmill is super lightweight and simple but it still keeps track of your speed, steps, time, and distance. The aluminum-reinforced hydraulic handrail allows you to start, stop, pause, and increase or decrease speed just like any other model. While the standard Treadly is controlled with a remote, the Treadly 2 works with an IOS app where you can set daily or monthly goals, join live groups, or compete against friends. I just got the Treadly 2 which has been massively helpful during quarantine. My mom was the only one home when it was delivered and despite being only 5′ tall (she’ll tell you she’s 5’2”), she managed to get it into the house and up a full flight of stairs because she’s just that stubborn. (She does now admit it’s a two-person job, however.) Setup is a breeze as it’s literally already put together — all you have to do it plug it in. The controls are easy to use and once you pair it with your smartphone, the app instantly recognizes whenever you turn the treadmill on. Beth (aka my mom) has an Apple watch so she used the activity tracker on there to see if the distance and calories matched up between Apple’s tech and Treadly’s tech and they did so she gives that a thumbs up. After walking on it for a few weeks (roughly an hour per night, four nights a week), her favorite things are: The switch functionality (great for interval training), how stable it feels both on carpet and laminate or hardwood (she tried both), and overall ease of use (“it feels like you’re walking on an airport people mover!”). Her only advice for Treadly — if you’re listening — is to add a cupholder accessory LOL.” —Chelsea Stuart, BuzzFeed Staff

A set of Bottle Bright tablets so you can tackle all those stains on your bottles and travel mugs instead of quietly buying new ones every year when it seems like they’re past the point of no return.

Before, during, and after of a stain-caked water bottle turned clean by the tablet


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

A Pet House candle with scents engineered to cancel out all those miscellaneous pet odors like litter boxes, dog bed, and all those lil’ sprinkles of pee that you’ve just accepted as “eau de basement” since your pet came into your home.

A lavender green tea candle burning in a living room


Amazon

Promising review: “These candles are fantastic! They smell great, and do a great job of eliminating any odors in your house, not only those from pets. They do work best if you burn them for 1-2 hours at a time, but will get rid of the smells of wet dog, fecal smells, urine odors, and I’ve even found them useful for cooking odors. I highly recommend these candles. I purchased the Vanilla Creme Brûlée scent. I often get headaches from powerful scents, but have never gotten one from these lovely candles!” —Heather

A power scrubber brush you can attach to a DRILL (!!) that basically does all of the hard grime-busting for you, so you don’t have to have sore arms for a week just because you dared to wipe down the shower.

amazon.com

Promising review: “I got this for Christmas. Honestly I didn’t think it would work. It sat around for 6-7 months before I tried it. Wow! My tiled shower had mold, mildew, iron, rust, hard water stains, dirt and every other nasty stain that can be had in a shower. With a little Comet and very little effort it took it all off. I have tried every cleaner, scrubbie that I could find to clean this shower. Nothing worked. Not even straight bleach. This scrubber worked. I am in shock that it worked. After a good workout I noticed that the some of the brushes were bent. The product is still worth the money even if I have to replace it. Overall this is a great product. I am going to be giving them as Christmas gifts this year.” —FreddiesCat

amazon.com

Now you can host your get-togethers without that one helpful friend being like *GASP* when they see the state of your dishwasher.

Promising review: “We have very hard water in this area, and though my dishwasher is supposed to be self-cleaning when you use the right detergent (which I have been), it’s been getting gunkier and gunkier and a couple of months ago the rinse aid dispenser stopped filling properly. When I looked that up, the online advice said that can happen if it gets too dirty and gave advice on running the dishwasher with vinegar and other tricks. But I saw this and, being pleased with Affresh’s machine cleaners I’d used on my clothes washer, decided to try it. It worked AMAZINGLY, in ONE try. My rinse aid dispenser immediately started working good as new again, and my dishwasher is the cleanest it’s been since we got it! Love it!” —Mouriana

A foot file just as effective — if not more so! — than going to a salon. This will remove calluses and hard or cracked skin from your feet with some gentle, pain-free rubbing. It works whether your feet are dry or wet at the time, and will leave your heels so soft you might start petting them.

I have extremely crusty feet and because Covid was going on, I hadn’t been able to get to the salons so I bought this and tried it at home. IT WORKED! I am very pleased.

A produce-saver storage container designed to keep your fruits and veggies fresh way longer, so you can finally stop surrendering to the race against time when your produce goes bad faster than you can finish it.

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 broom for pet and human hair that can work on any type of floor, but is specifically designed to pull up the kind of pet hair that’s so deep in the carpet you’ve just learned to live with it. (Trust me, your actual carpet is probably a different color than you think.)


amazon.com, amazon.com

An embarrassing confession: I do not have a pet, but I shed like nobody’s business. My hair gets so ingrained in the carpet that a vacuum truly does nothing for it, so I often was just unrooting clumps of hair from the floor with my hands (sorry for the visual). I bought this broom and it immediately started pulling it up GOBS of hair. My carpet like, genuinely changed color (turns out the pink was supposed to be much pinker, whoops). Anyway, do with that semi-horrifying information what you will.

Promising review: “I bought this broom two years ago and it is still going strong! I have four large breed dogs and we have fur — EVERYWHERE! This works so so good! I came back and purchased one for my neighbor and sent one to my favorite pet rescue down south. I am always amazed at what this picks up even after I just ran the vacuum. If you remove the head from the handle you can use the head to do in all the crevices along baseboards where fur gets trapped on the carpets. I also use it that way to do the carpet corners on the stairs. Lastly I use it to get dust and cobwebs off the floors and ceilings. It truly is a super tool.” —Roseann

A ring size adjuster for loose rings, so you can finally stop checking every eight minutes to make sure you’re ring is, in fact, on your finger, and not rolling behind your furniture.


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

A set of soft, workout-friendly Reebok face masks for anyone still struggling to find a decent mask to work out in — it’s the best errand-running and *literal* running mask I’ve tried so far.


Reebok, Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

I ordered two packs of these back in June and WOW, do I love them. I wear one of them nearly every day for errand running and walks, and they’re by far my favorite running/exercise mask so far. The material is protective but lightweight, with sort of a wetsuit feel. It stays locked in place while I’m running even though I sweat buckets. The seams are so subtle that they don’t irritate my face. Also, I feel really cool wearing them, which is saying something, because I am the least cool person I know. Note: I got the M/L size and tied the elastic straps for a tighter fit; XS/S seems more geared to kids and people with smaller faces.

A set of itty bitty dermaplaning razors you can use to take care of those lil’ unibrow hairs that keep dodging your tweezers or work whatever face fuzzies you might want to take care of in a gentle way — an especially handy tool when many of us can’t head to a salon like we normally would.

This tool also helps soften skin by gently exfoliating as you use it!

Promising review: “I will start by saying that I am someone who is used to getting regular facials that include dermaplaning. I bought this because this service was no longer available to me during COVID (social distancing). I needed something to clear away dead skin and fine hairs. This product did NOT disappoint. The first time I used this blade/product I was absolutely amazed at the results. I washed my face and hands before using this. Once my face was dry, I used this to clear away dried skin areas and fine hair. My face felt amazing. I then proceeded to follow my moisturizing routine. It literally felt like I came from the spa. They came three to a package so this was a great buy for the amount of money spent. I have used one blade roughly three to four times and still don’t feel the need to switch to a new blade yet. Excellent purchase.” —Valerie Denison

A contoured sleep mask designed to alleviate pressure from your eyes and plunge you into total delicious darkness, while staying put on your head without any Velcro snagging in your hair.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I don’t require complete darkness when I sleep, so I hadn’t thought I’d ever want a sleep mask. Then 2020 happened! The pandemic and its associated anxiety have messed up my sleep in a major way. I often get to sleep just fine but wake up later unable to get back to sleep. I’ve decreased caffeine, established a regular bedtime, avoided screens hours before bed, and tried melatonin. I guess it’s all mental for me, but when I wake up like that, heart racing and sweaty, and I can’t see anything — no clocks or moonlight, no dozing form of my beloved next to me, no cat demon staring at the foot of the bed—I tend to settle down easier. It’s like wearing the mask reminds me I’m supposed to shut my eyes and sleep. And I usually do, right until the alarm goes off. I like the molded cups around the eyes. A flat mask would make me feel like I’m rubbing off all my eye cream and lash serum through the night. I have not washed this mask yet, but I think it’ll hold up just fine gently hand washing it. The adjustable band is soft and doesn’t slip out of place. If you’re on the fence about trying a sleep mask, you might as well get a really nice one! Give this a try, especially if you have anxiety like I described.” —Anna

Promising review: “This projector has been an amazing addition to our quarantine life at home. Who needs the movies when you have this. The volume is actually really good and the Wi-Fi is helpful. We hook up our Direct TV, Fire Stick, etc, and it all works great with great picture! We’ve been having a blast moving the movies home.” —Amazon Customer

A battery-operated depiller you can use to restore old fabrics to their former glory, instead of living with nice sweaters that all look like they got in a fight with a character on Sesame Street.

Promising review: “Okay, I don’t normally rave about things like this. I bought this on a whim in last attempts to save my favorite duvet cover. The pills had gotten to the point where it was seriously uncomfortable to sleep with them getting all up in my leg space. I thought I was going to have to get a new duvet cover entirely. Along came this lil’ baby. Not only is my duvet cover basically brand new, but I have found a new hobby. I’m depilling everything. Sweatshirts, leggings, blankets, socks, anything that looks like it needs some love. It does the job quickly and leaves everything looking fresh. Hi I’m obsessed. I can’t stop. I should send this back. I’ve started asking if my neighbors need anything depilled. I’m going to buy one of these for everyone in my life. Everyone needs to own this. Take it away from me.” —Sydney Jensen

A shampoo scalp massager you can use in the shower to massage and exfoliate your scalp, giving an *actual* solution to that grease build-up you sometimes get at your roots that makes you have to shower or use dry shampoo more often than you’d like.

Promising review: “I’m not washing my hair as often as I should be during quarantine, and after a while my scalp started getting dandruff/flaking skin and was itching. No matter how much I scrubbed the shampoo in with my fingers, my hair still felt oily after showers. I got this and I noticed a BIG difference in my hair after using it. This felt AMAZING while scrubbing my scalp to work the shampoo in (at first I was afraid it wouldn’t get to my scalp through my hair or would pull my hair out but neither of those happened) and once my hair dried, I noticed that it wasn’t oily at all and my roots were superrr soft. I’m going to recommend this to everyone I know!” —Megan

A cold brew coffee maker to prevent you from wincing every time you see the identical weekday charges from the coffee shop on your bank statement. This is so gloriously easy to use that all you have to do is stick your favorite ground coffee in the filter, seal the airtight lid on top, and pop it in the fridge overnight. Boom, four cups of cold brew, fraction of the price.

Promising review: “Due to Covid-19, I haven’t been able to grab a latte from Starbucks or my favorite local spots. I bought this and a milk frother and made some simple syrup and I am in heaven! This cold brew maker makes a great cup of cold brew coffee and it’s keeping me caffeinated.” —Lindsey Lane

A flexible universal tablet stand so you don’t have to crane your neck or tire out your arms just to marathon reruns of Parks and Rec in peace.


Amazon

Promising review: “Just started using this and it appears to work better than other stands I’ve used. I have used it in bed, on the sofa, and in the kitchen while cooking. The three angles are perfect and the height keeps cooking splatters from reaching surfaces. One must remember that when moving from one spot or location to another to readjust the legs as the stand has a tendency to fold up when moved. I love the feature allowing me to use my electronic device while in bed. Time will tell how well the elastic clasp will keep things secured in this position. Absolutely love this stand so far. Gifted my neighbor with one and he seems as pleased as I am.” —Sharon

A selfie ring light so you can finally stop feeling self-conscious on game night Zoom calls where all your friends look well-lit enough to live with the Kardashians and for some reason your apartment looks like a medieval dungeon.

You can either use this with your phone mounted just under the light for FaceTime or TikTok, or if you’re calling or filming from a laptop, you can set up the tripod or the light on your desk behind the screen. Boom, fancy lighting.

Promising review: “I’ve been having to work from home. During this time, I’m in front of my computer doing WebEx calls and Teams. Having to present and talk in front of 20-50+ people. This light is AWESOME! My team even asked what I did and then made their purchase right away!” —Anna Chouinard

A pet urine stain-removing spray that instantly tackles both old and new stains *plus* the funky smell, so you can enjoy the new quality time you might be getting with your pet without sacrificing your nostrils.

Promising review: “Oh my gosh…. of course my cat decides to go on a PEE SPREE during the COVID pandemic when we are stuck inside our home for days on end!!!!! My cat peed on my mattress, the carpet, and two couches, and since the state went on lockdown, we couldn’t have a carpet/upholstery place come in to clean (and even then, they couldn’t guarantee anything against CAT URINE, which they say is the worst possible stain/odor to remove). This was our only hope. Well. This worked. It WORKED, PEOPLE. I sprayed the mattress down, soaked it good, soaked a rag in the stuff and laid it on top to THOROUGHLY saturate it. Then I soaked up as much of the residual and let it air dry. and then I BURIED my face in there, punched the mattress to see if any stink ‘poofed’ up into my face … and nope. Only the wonderful bubble-gum type scent of this spray was left. So I’m totally happy.” —AmazonReviewerJen

A set of tiny Command strips perfect for anyone who is constantly forgetting their face masks at the door, and wants an easy, non-permanent way to have them at the ready.

Amazon

A few months ago I set up a little Command hook mask corner by my apartment door, and it has been SO HELPFUL — instead of rooting through my masks to find the one that matches best (I’m a vain critter at heart) I can see all the clean ones I have available right in front of me, and don’t forget to put it on when I’m in a rush. I also use it to hang my sports masks after I sanitize them and am waiting for them to dry!

As for how the Command hooks work — these have an adhesive on the back for easy application to the wall, which you can pull down on once you’re ready to uninstall it without doing any damage to the wallpaper or paint.

Promising review:I set up a row of these per person in our house on the back of a door near where we exit, to hang our face masks. There is a hook for each day. They are staying on the door, but remember, there isn’t much weight from a face mask. Right size for face masks — small. Like that they don’t stick out. Working well for our purpose.” —Amy

Promising review: “I thought this stuff was a bunch of BS, I was like pssh what a waste of $8 ON AMAZON FOR THIS LITTLE THING. Well, I put it on today on spots where my flats rub off the skin. My feet survived an entire day, INTACT! Highly recommend. This product made wearing shoes that rub on your ankles/backs of your feet doable!!!!” —Jamie
