Blueland

Promising review: “Always trying to find ways to live more sustainably and with less waste. Blueland is a perfect way to do that with re-using the same bottles and you can re-up whenever you need to. I ended up purchasing another foaming hand soap bottle for the bathroom — I would order extra of the hand soap tablets because it does go pretty quick compared to the rest.” —Cait F.

Plus, it soaks up liquids and odors so your home stays smelling fresh! Whether you’re lacking a backyard or just don’t feel like making constant trips in the rain or snow, this long-lasting, disposable mat is the perfect option to make potty time a whole lot simpler.

Promising review: “This is a lifesaver!! My fiancé and I had resigned ourselves to only purchasing rugs from Target and replacing them as needed, because of accidents our tiny pup, (with a tiny bladder), would have. I started buying Fresh Patch, which is real living grass, and our dog loves it. It typically lasts us a couple weeks depending on our work schedules, but it doesn’t smell and dogs naturally prefer to potty on grass so there’s no training involved. We go through way less carpet cleaner and can hold onto a rug we love now without worrying about stains.” —lolobentley

I wear this while working from home, watching Netflix, and while taking naps. It’s so comfy that there have been times I don’t want to take it off when I have to run to the store — the only reason I do is because I don’t want it to get dirty.

A pair of DrainWigs so the situation in your drain doesn’t get too ~hairy.~ Simply leave it in your drain until it’s full of hair, then toss and replace as needed.


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “I didn’t even think about my shower drain being such a problem with hair. We have a relatively new shower and the drain was starting to be slow, but not really a problem because the pipe has a long drop. I was watching Shark Tank and thought maybe I need to check this out. Wow, there was a lot of hair to clean! Three long-haired girls in the house! I started using this and it pulled all sorts of hair out. We change it about once a month. Easy to pull out and no breaks or rust. I keep buying!” —Kindle Customer

A splatter guard to protect you from sizzling oil splashes that would just love to hop on out of the pan and land on your bare skin. Plus, now you won’t have to give your entire stove a deep clean just because you were in the mood for latkes.

BTW, it’s BPA-free, FDA-compliant, heat-resistant up to 450°F, and dishwasher-safe.

Promising review: “I was frying chicken with lard (yes, I use lard! My chicken is NOT health food.) and I put too much in the frying pan. A few minutes after putting the chicken in, the lard began to bubble up and if I hadn’t had the Frywall in place, it would have spilled all over my stove. The Frywall creates a seal around my frying pan, stopping spillovers. Splatters don’t escape, it’s easy to work around it (turning my chicken over), and when I’m done, I just throw it in the dishwasher. If you do any frying at all, you want the Frywall.

A portable bug bite suction tool that helps reduce itching and swelling from a mosquito, bee, or wasp sting by literally SUCKING the venom out of your skin.


Amazon, amazon.com

Note that the suction can be pretty strong, so use caution and try a small amount of suction first before working your way up if necessary.

Promising review: “I am a magnet for bites of all kinds and carry topical and medicines with me at all times — so I figured this would be a good product to see if it really works. I woke up with a bug bite on my arm so I used this little tool (three times per the instructions) — immediately after using, it stopped itching! And less than 24 hours later the bump/bite gone! There is a very faint red mark from using the thing, but a small price to pay IMO. Bottom line: it’s awesome. I’m carrying it with me everywhere!” —Rebecca

A pack of all-natural bottle cleaning tablets to get rid of those stains, smells, and tastes making you wonder if it’s time for a new thermos. *SPOILER ALERT* It’s probably not! But it is time for these tablets to get in there and do the hard cleaning for you — no scrubbing or extra effort required on your part!

These are biodegradable and odor-free.

Promising review: “I seriously can’t believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. A bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. 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 I used it on another HydroFlask 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

Promising review: “I had been reading about these for a while and will admit I was a bit skeptical, but still really interested to see how they might impact my bathroom habits. Suffice it to say I am more than pleased with how well this has worked for me. First off, the unit is significantly stronger and more sturdy than I was expecting. I assumed it was going to be something like lawn chair strength, but this thing is actually moderately strong. It puts my feet at a great angle for pooping, and I would say that I’m able to go more ‘thoroughly’ than I would otherwise. Happy with the purchase for sure. As a nice bonus, it’s helping with my 3-year-old daughter starting to transition to an adult potty after as opposed to using her toddler’s potty.” —M. Smith

Some cruelty-free, natural all-purpose cleaner that is seriously powerful on messes *without* using toxic ingredients. If other cleaners make you uneasy about how safe it is for pets, little ones, or even the planet, this option will give you some peace of mind as well as big results!


Amazon, BuzzFeed / cleanhappens.com

This cleaner is free of VOCs, alkyphenol, surfactants, and petroleum, *and* was not tested on animals.

Promising review: “I was looking for a safe natural product that didn’t have any ingredients requiring a hazardous waste disposal label. A lot of so-called ‘natural’ cleaners have ingredients that need an EPA use-and-disposal label. This doesn’t. It is strong enough to really go through grease and grime like a clear organic tornado. I haven’t found anything that can’t be cleaned with it yet. Plus it’s odor free. I feel comfortable spraying it in places where pets, children or myself in bare feet might absorb it by stepping in the residue. It’s hard to get excited over cleaning spray but this deserves a level of excitement in my home.” —Mark O.

Promising review: “I used to save these little gems for ‘special projects’ (what projects, I don’t know because I ended up not ever using them!). Then one day I decided ‘what the heck, just use one in the sink for dishes, you can always buy more.’ Lo and behold, I LOVE them! They remove food off of dishes more easily than a sponge and I just throw them in the top rack of the dishwasher and they come out spotless! They never smell and always rinse out nicely in between washings. These little gems even take off hard water build up from my shower doors! (I also use regular cleaners with them to do the trick.). I love these so much I bought a bunch and used them as stocking stuffers last Xmas! Everyone loves them!” —DivaGranny

Amazon

This bag is free of BPA, PVC, and latex.

Promising review: “I’ve tried a LOT of reusable bags as there are a lot of options out there all using a variety of materials. The fabric ones just get gross over time. The vinyl ones are hard to clean and aren’t usually dishwasher-safe. There are other silicone ones that need a separate rod to close them that you can easily lose. This one is the most simple and easy to use. No separate pieces to lose. Can withstand any temperature/microwave/dishwasher/whatever. And if they get gunky they are very easy to clean and I trust that they aren’t hiding gross crumbs in any of the crevices. My only complaint is the cost — they are the most expensive and I wish they offered a bulk discount. If they were cheaper I would use them for EVERYTHING (open cheese in cheese drawer, all snacks on the go, etc).” —Megan A.

Some Bambooee reusable towels because single-use paper towels are sooooo yesterday. These are durable, super absorbant, and can be thrown right into the washing machine! Wanna save money and like…the planet? Kick regular paper towels to the curb!


amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: “I’ve had my Bambooee rolls for five months now. I love using it to clean most of the surfaces at home such as kitchen counter tops, table, and bathroom surfaces. I still buy paper towels for when I eat. This for me did not replace paper towels but it did replace the amount of paper towels I use. Instead of grabbing a paper towel to wipe down my kitchen counter top, I grab a Bambooee and clean up any mess.

The great part about the Bambooee vs. a rag is that it does not smell! The bamboo never gets moldy or harbors any bacteria. You can tell by smell alone. You can use it multiple times, rinse it with water and soap, and then let it air dry by the sink. I hang mine under they sink. After one week of use, I’ll throw it in a bin for wash. I wash it on hot with bleach and detergent. I do not put it in the dryer. It shrinks drastically when you do. Instead I air dry them. Stretch them out when they’re still wet. Then after when they’re dry I roll them back on to the roller it came with. I stick the whole roll under the sink. I have noticeably spent less on paper towels. I love this product so much!” —AmazonAddict

Promising review: “I’ve had my Bambooee rolls for five months now. I love using it to clean most of the surfaces at home such as kitchen counter tops, table, and bathroom surfaces. I still buy paper towels for when I eat. This for me did not replace paper towels but it did replace the amount of paper towels I use.

A portable campfire perfect for anyone who doesn’t feel like dealing with the hassle of building and cleaning up after a fire. Simply light it with a match or lighter and extinguish by covering with the lid. It actually puts out an impressive amount of heat without a bunch of smoke, so you can say goodbye to burning eyes and soot-smelling clothes. Plus, it’s reusable, and each fire should last around three to five hours!

Promising review: “Great for a patio or stealth-camping. I always love hanging out around a campfire, but sometimes you can’t just build a blaze. The Radiate throws a lot of warmth and light for its size, making it really feel like being around a camp fire. It’s safe to roast marshmallows over too! Whether you’re on a patio, a beach, or anywhere else you can’t build a fire, this is a perfect solution. It doesn’t produce much smoke, but still keeps the bugs away. I’m a backpacker, so normally I would write something like this off as WAY too heavy to cary into the back country, but I’ve carried a Radiate several times as a ‘luxury item’ because it’s so safe and convenient when a normal fire is not an option. The tin also makes a good trash bin when you’re packing out. (LEAVE NO TRACE!) $30 might feel like a lot for something to burn (unless you smoke cigars) but compared to a cold, dark night in the woods, it’s very worth it!” —Amazon Customer

A no-slip plate/placemat that’ll suction right to the table so your messy toddler can’t indulge in the ol’ throwing the dish routine that they seem to love so much. Remember when every meal didn’t end with food all over the floor?

Promising review: “Does your child ‘feed the dog’ during meal time? While this dish won’t guarantee they won’t continue that fun habit, it sure helps. Instead of ‘wiping all the food’ off his highchair tray, now my grandson’s food sits in this sturdy dish that can’t move. And I mean can’t! It stays put and the cut pieces are easy to pick up it. Easy to clean too!” —Reeve

Promising review: “We never had problems with ticks or fleas while living in the city, but six months ago we moved to the country. Our two dogs (Doberman and small pit bull mix) run around outside and sometimes in the woods on our property. We started finding ticks on them. The vet recommended $50+ collars ‘that most other owners buy for their dogs.’ We scoffed at the expense for two dogs. I had remembered seeing this product on Shark Tank and had saved it on my lists here. Started using it on our dogs three months ago, Doberman has had not one tick and the pit bull had one, on the back of his ear, which we found super quick. This has been a great natural product to use out here. And there are tons of ticks. I think I’m going to start using it for myself per reading other reviews.” —KitKat

A magnetic eyeglass holder so you can stop worrying about your glasses falling out of your shirt pocket *and* put an end to having to call in a search party every time you forget where you left them. These’ll hold them much more securely and keep ’em nearby at all times!


Amazon

Promising review: “I can’t tell you how many reading glasses I’ve killed in the past few years, largely from jettisoning them from my breast pocket or hooking them awkwardly in my shirt collar. These clips are amazing. They’re discreet enough that I don’t look like a goon wearing one on my shirt all day, and when I hang my glasses from them I can tie my shoes without spilling them lens-first on the ground. What else can a fellow ask for?” —Phil Selman

A pair of discreet, form-fitting acoustic filter earplugs that’ll reduce damaging decibel levels without hurting the sound quality. Hate bulky earplugs that never fit comfortably, look clunky, and make concerts sound like they’re happening underwater? Then you need to give these a shot.

Amazon

Promising review: “My significant other is on the spectrum, and he is very sensitive to loud noises, especially at crowded bars, concerts, and sporting events. He either is very uncomfortable or has to use regular earplugs that muffle the sound. I got him these earplugs and they are awesome! They protect your ears, but the sound quality stays the same. It makes a big difference for him!” —spicedham
