A Mrs. Meyer’s plant-derived surface cleaner with a fresh smell and amazing grease- and stain-lifting powers reviewers rave over. People use it to replace harsh chemical cleansers, and even folks usually unconvinced by “green” products swear by it.

The main cleaning ingredient, decyl gucoside, a biodegradable solvent made from corn starch and coconut alcohols. Its most common use is in shampoos and cleansers for sensitive skin. It’s safe for most people, but be careful if you have contact dermatitis because it can irritate it; that said, it should still be and less irritating than ammonia, bleach, and the other chemicals people use this to replace.

Promising review: “My test: can it clean like my Clorox Cleanup? OMG……YES, IT SOOOOOOO CAN!!!! And the smell is freakin’ awesome. I got Lemon Verbena. In a word…..YUMMY. In a couple words……Super Fresh, “Clean” scent. This picture is of the bottle sitting in my freshly-cleaned stainless steel sink. Well, you can see what it did. It’s super shiny… the lights in my kitchen are REFLECTING off the surface. My sink shined it right up with this product.” —Shannon

A smart camera that works with Alexa, has day and night views, allows for real-time monitoring, and is equipped with two-way communication via an app.


Amazon

Promising review: “SO… I rarely write reviews but was so amazed by this camera I wanted to let others know. I bought the camera after using the Ring indoor camera for twice the price, because the Ring made a constant clicking noise (a known issue). I’ve tried all the other brands out there and was disappointed with all of them. Then I tried the Blink Mini because I thought it was for sale at a good price. The setup was a breeze, up and running in 30 seconds. The app is responsive and user friendly. My wifi is slow but it still loaded a 1080p HD quality view when I accessed it from my mobile app. My favorite feature is the night vision. All my previous cameras just showed a dark room or shadows but this camera shows a clear and crisp picture in pitch black darkness. Very pleased with this and you can’t go wrong here.” —Tech Guru

A pair of Levis 501 denim shorts I’m literally wearing right now and almost every day this summer because they’re soooooo comfy and cute! It seems like everyone’s bought a pair this season, which makes sense because they clearly look great on ~everybody~!

A reviewer wears the shorts

You may want to size up or down, depending on your body. I found that the waist is a little bigger than on my Levi’s full-length jeans, but curvier folks often said they had to go up a size or two from what they usually do.

A swim backpack that’s big enough to carry all your gear and ventilated to keep your stuff from getting moldy.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I had been using the Speedo Ventilator Duffel Bag but it was way too big for what I needed. This bag is the perfect size to use at the Y pool. It holds my swim flippers, snorkel, and goggles as well as a small towel and my shower items. But the thing I like best about this is because of its small size I now take it with me into the pool area itself, so I have everything I need at hand and it’s convenient to just reach into the bag and grab what I want. Because of the hook at the top, this acts like a backpack and is easy to hang on the pool hooks.” —DM

A shaved ice machine beloved by people who crave the cold stuff. Some eat the snow straight, some add flavors, but everyone agrees this machine is super easy to use to make yourself a chill treat in no time.

A toolbox organizing rack to bring order to the unrelenting natural chaos of your tool collection. This simple design can fit most standard sized screwdrivers, hammers, wrenches, and pliers.

Four of the racks installed in a 26-inch drawer


amazon.com

While it is true that eventually entropy comes for us all, you garage is your safe-space. May your tireless tidiness therein reign supreme forever, starting with simple solutions to tame the mess.

Each one of these bad boys is 10 inches wide and holds ten tools. They’re three inches high, so be sure to make sure your drawer is tall enough before you order. 

Promising review: “I like my tool box to be extremely organized so I know exactly where everything is at, but my plier drawer was getting so full I was about to have to use another drawer if I wanted everything laid out nice and neat. I saw these and decided to try them out and absolutely love them. The two-pack fit perfectly in my box and freed up tons of space for other pliers if I ever need it. It pretty much doubled the room I had in that drawer. It stays in place and doesn’t slide around at all. They are made in the US and work very well. Measure the depth of your tool box drawer before ordering to make sure these won’t be to tall. Overall it’s a very nice and effective product that I would buy again.” —Tom

The black fan on a low-ceiling porch


amazon.com

This is switch-/pull chain-operated only, there’s no remote.

Promising review: “I bought two of these fans as replacements for our beat up porch fans. They were easy to install, taking about an hour each but that’s with people talking to me throughout the time. The twist lock blades were so easy to install onto the blade arms The fans work great, with no wobble or vibrations but plenty of air movement! As you can see in my pictures, I used the CLOSEMOUNT option, which was crucial since our porch ceiling is pretty low. Overall, we love these fans!” —B. Gonzalez

An ultralight hiking daypack you can stuff with ~so much~ stuff, but still compacts down into its own tiny carrying case.


Amazon, amazon.com

It has a storage volume of about 1100 cubic inches, in case you were wondering.

Promising review: “I’ve travelled the world with Osprey bags, and they have been the most solid bags I’ve ever owned. However, I was nervous about buying an ultralight pack. We had already tried one from another vendor and I wasn’t overwhelmed with the product. The issue with these kinds of bags isn’t the quality — there are quality bags out there for less — it’s the thinking that’s put into them. I’m impressed to no ends with the quality of this bag. Having dragged two of these on a recent international trip, we found them to be comfortable enough and they do pack down considerably. We did a ton of back country hiking with a part of these, and the best thing I can say about them is that they didn’t get noticed… they just worked, and we were extremely pleased. We are now carrying this Osprey bag in another Osprey backpack as part of an ultralight international travel kit, which has been to nine countries in the last three years, all without incident.” —Digital Nomad

The reviewer above got these results after two months of daily use! Again, remember this isn’t a replacement for veterinary care.

Promising review:One application and day later I see better results than vet-prescribed meds. My cat Gandalf was in bad condition when we adopted him because he had a severe skin yeast infection. I tried this in a last ditch effort to help him and, WOW, one day later and finally my poor boy isn’t constantly licking or scratching until he bleeds. He isn’t licking at all!! His open wounds are finally scabbing and he finally has relief. Thank you so much for making this product.” —Joshua and Michelle

It’s dust-resistant, so it use it inside or outside, no problem. It’s also machine-washable, although hand washing is recommended.

Promising review: “I am SO in love with this table cloth! It is exactly what I wanted! It is also exactly what is seen in the picture, which is rare and nice. The material is great quality and the fringe is pretty durable too. I expected to be able to pull it out easily or that it would fall of easily but they’re on there pretty well! The colors and contrasting threading go together beautifully and look great. It’s also the perfect size for our table!” —Christon

An cute armored pachyderm pen, cup, and phone holder because an elephant never forgets…where your pens and phone are when storing them.

The desk ornament with pens and a phone


amazon.com

Promising review: “The photos are with a phone case from my Samsung Note 8. Sorry I needed my phone for the photos. The elephant is a nice weight. He doesn’t tip when you put a phone on him either direction. The hole doesn’t hold much as you can tell in the photos. Larger phones do hang off quite a bit but they are well balanced. Mine has only slid off when I have knocked it with something. I really like this and it adds character to my boring office.” —Elite Trailer

A three-pack of dusk-to-dawn lightbulbs that’re sensor-controlled, to automatically provide illumination ~only~ when it’s dark enough to be necessary. The best part? It works without the need for apps or Wi-Fi, right out of the box.


amazon.com

You read that right: it literally knows when to turn itself on and off! It’s rated for a 25,000 hour lifespan, which lasts about 20 years in normal usage.

Promising review: “Your going to get perfect lighting better than the old-time light bulbs with these. This 60W soft white bulb is bright, easy on the eyes, and has outstanding performance. It goes on at dusk and off at dawn flawlessly, as advertised. Outdoors, it does not matter what position the light sensor is on, the bulb adjusts with terrific accuracy. It also does not matter if the bulb is put in a clear glass fixture. Nor does it matter if the light fixture faces north, south, east or west. If you have an entrance door with fixtures on both sides of the door, no issue. In fact, it doesn’t even matter if the fixtures are under a roof, awning or any overhang or not. The bulbs work fine no matter what.” —William

A portable Bissell SpotBot because who wants to spend hours on their hands and knees scrubbing cat vomit from the carpet with a brush? The answer: no one. Good thing this’ll clean up your messes in minutes.


amazon.com

This portable carpet cleaner will spray, brush, and suction up any stain, no adult supervision needed. It also comes with a hose and tool attachment if you’d prefer a more hands-on cleaning session.

Promising review: “I have two cats (ages 16 and eight), one dog, a five-year-old kid, and several other dogs on occasion (I pet sit and board dogs). I have needed to rent a carpet cleaner at least twice a year since I can remember. No longer! The SpotBot has revolutionized cleaning in our household. It is ridiculously easy and fast! The best part is that I barely have to touch anything gross anymore. I always pick up the larger chunks first, but I let the SpotBot do the rest and all I have to do is follow-it up with a good dump and rinse. A single spot takes less than five minutes to clean depending on the setting used and your competency (again, super easy to set up and use). I’ve had good experience on the stairs and the upholstery using the wand as well.” —Rainbow Chicken

A pair of Birkenstock dupe suede and cork sandals that’re 100% comfy for 60% less than you’d pay for the name brand version.

The sandal in black


Amazon

Promising review: “I’ve been wearing the name brand version of these sandals for at least 20 years, and find that the sculpted foot-bed feels great and keep my feet from aching. Based upon the positive reviews, I decided to give these similar sandals a try. When first trying them on, I was shocked my how comfortable these are; the suede soles are slightly padded and extremely comfortable! As others have mentioned, the sculpted footbed and arch are not as deep as the name brand, but my feet adapted to them quickly. The leather uppers are very soft and supple, and the overall construction appears to be as good as the name brand. Due to my low instep, I did have to add extra holes to tighten the buckles, but that was not a problem in the soft leather. I’m looking forward to wearing these very comfortable sandals as slippers and around the house for a long time!” —Bob P

A 1″ blue painter’s tape that goes on neat, holds sharp lines, and is designed to come off clean and easy. I know paint, and trust me this is the good stuff. I won’t use anything else.

The paint used on a wall art project. You can see that it came up clean.


amazon.com

In a past life, I made large scale artworks using basic household and groundskeeping supplies, and I’ve tried just about every painter’s tape out there. This is the best. Provided you let it set first (like 3M suggests), this blue tape gives you flawless lines even with thin paints or fine powders, and comes up clean without damaging what you’ve painted even if you’re working with really thick paints and primers.  It doesn’t cost very much, and investing in a high-quality outcome is always worth it. You can also buy 1.5″ tape or 2″ tape for wider options.

Promising review: “I use this for nearly all my tape needs. Good adhesion and good paint lines. You can leave it in place for weeks (cream-colored standard masking tape will have the adhesive harden in just a few days, making it hard to remove).” —Pat Saxon

A pair of studded rubber grooming gloves – they strip dandruff and shedding fur like nothing else, and are a smart prevention strategy to avoid hairballs and other messes.

A demonstration of the cat hair the gloves can remove and how easy it is to get the hair off the gloves


amazon.com

Promising review: “Come summer time, we have two cats struggling with hairballs from all the excessive hair. Both of the cats are very snuggly and love getting pets, scratches, and belly rubs; I surmised that perhaps the only reason they didn’t like being brushed was because the motion didn’t feel natural to how I normally love on them. The logical solution was to try a gloved brush. To my relief, both cats have responded positively. One actually laid down to let me brush her, hence the larger amount of collected hair.” —AS

Promising review: “I was recently discharged after a week in the hospital for bone fusion procedures through the front and back of my neck. I ordered two other wedge pillows and was about to give up. This wedge changed everything. The material is soft and fuzzy and the pillow has the perfect amount of give: not too stiff, not too soft. Adjustable in perfect ways for couch sleeping, upright comfortable relaxing, and perfect on the bed — especially with another wedge under your knees.” —Susanna Battison

Price: $42.45 (available in two sizes)
