A dozen Bottle Bright tablets that’ll deep clean your thermoses and on-the-go bottles — no scrubbing required. These’ll get into all those hard-to-reach spaces and remove *all* the gunk.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I seriously can’t believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask 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 HydroFlask to replace it. Now 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 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

The green flower-shaped tablets, which come in a pouch


Sage Moon Soaps / Etsy

Promising review: “Let me start by saying I have a lousy nose — I’ve suffered with swollen sinuses all my life, but these steamers are a breath of fresh air! I place one in my tub with HOT water on and allow the steam to reach it — poof…(ah☺️)…I can smell it fine! I am very happy with this product and look forward to my shower time even more. Lasts a long time too. I’m very satisfied.” —Laurie M. Fernandez

A grooming glove designed with nodules on the fingers and palms to make brushing the excess hair from your cat, dog, or even horse more like petting — so your pet won’t fidget or get uncomfortable, and your sofa (and clothes!) won’t be constantly covered in hair.

A collage of review images showing how much hair the glove removes


Amazon

Promising review: “Fantastic dog grooming aid! Our older rescue dog isn’t too keen on the routine dog brushing stuff but her thick coat really needs the grooming — this dog grooming glove is the exactly right answer. Put the glove on, pet the dog, and all that loose hair comes away leaving her coat feeling so much smoother and softer without causing her to be nervous or upset over a brushing. Highly recommend, and yes I’m going to be ordering as gifts for a couple of other dog owners I know!” —DSP

Get each glove from Amazon for $6.99+ (also available in a left-handed style).

A suede and nubuck brush to freshen up your favorite kicks before storing them for the spring and summer. It has *four* different surfaces for different cleaning needs so you can tackle any stain.

A reviewer's black suede boots: the left covered in light brown dirt, the right completely clean and new-looking


amazon.com

The welt surface is designed for stronger cleaning of heavier scuffs and stains, the nylon bristles for gentler cleaning of small scuffs on fine suede, the arched half circle helps you clean rounded surfaces more (think toe boxes!), and the thin, protruding brush can access harder-to-reach crevices or grooves.

Promising review: “This little brush is the bomb. I have three pairs of suede shoes and they were starting to look really iffy. This thing is so easy to use — I’m usually able to get my shoes looking presentable in under 30 seconds. When I first opened it I thought it looked like an over equipped brush-army-knife hybrid, but after using it for a while you’ll find that all of the different nubs and components of the brush have a function. I saw that some people purchase this along with some kind of suede conditioner — I’ve found that using only the brush has been effective. It is especially great for knocking off all of the NC mud and clay off of my boots without grinding it in. The brush seems durable and well made. I’m a fan!” —Alison B.

A set of makeup-removing cloths that’ll remove every single trace of dirt and makeup (even waterproof formulas!) with just water. And the cloths are super soft, so you won’t have to resort to harsh scrubbing that can dry out your face.

The cloths on the edge of a sink


Amazon

Promising review: “This product… I have no clue how this works, but it does! Let me start by saying I was wearing a full face of make up. I mean foundation, contour highlight, eyeliner, seriously the whole nine yards. All I did was wet it and wiped my face, my jaw literally dropped. This is hands down my favorite make up remover at the moment. The best part is that they are reusable so you don’t have to keep buying those expensive disposables that leave your face feeling greasy. And honestly, four dollars? Just buy them. Trust me, you won’t regret it.” —Heather and Ryne Griffith

A red wine stain remover to turn any party foul into an amazing party trick, AKA when you spill wine onto your shirt while sitting alone on the couch. It me.

Get it from Amazon for $7.95.

Promising review: “It did pass my first test! I did not expect to use this product a couple of days after I received it. Had a spill of red over one of my favorite shirts. I did try to remove the most dramatic area with water and soap right away; then I let this product sink in for half hour before washing and voilà it was all gone!” —Gerson Melgar

Bamboo charcoal shoe deodorizers you can pop into your sweatiest, stinkiest beer-soaked flats or old gym shoes — the smell will be G O N E.

A shelf of shoes with the rectangular deodorizer fabric bags inside


Amazon

They don’t mask odors; they also absorb moisture to prevent mold, mildew and bacteria from forming. You can reuse the bags for up to two years — just pop ’em in the sun for an hour every so often to freshen up.

Promising review: “I have a pair of black leather flats that stank so badly my husband would yell at me if I took them off anywhere near him. But I love the shoes! So I had to find something to make the stench go away without leaving me with an allergic reaction. Mini Moso was the answer. I honestly couldn’t believe it. A few days after placing them in my prized off shoes, I took a whiff from about a foot away. Nothing. I got closer. Nothing. I stuck my nose practically in the shoe. Ok, maybe that’s pushing things, but I’ve got to tell you that 95% of the broken-in leather grossness was gone. So happy!” —Erin

Promising review: “Very easy to use once you get the hang or it. I live in an apartment building with very drafty windows and electric heat; this insulation saves me a lot of money on my winter heating costs, and I’ve gotten really good at making it nearly invisible over the years.” —Julie

A dishwasher cleaner and disinfectant to remove limescale, rust, grease, and other nasty buildup so your machine runs more efficiently than ever — while you just sit back and relax.

A before/after of a reviewer's dishwasher, dirty and stained before and shiny and new looking after


amazon.com

Promising review: “After using this product, I am happy to report that my $5 investment saved me over $500. I was ready to replace my dishwasher, due to super cloudy glasses, residue, and just not getting clean. Then, I became aware that the water softener no longer was doing it’s job, so I had the rental company replace it. Dishwasher performance improved somewhat. I decided to do two more loads before deciding to purchase a new one. Then I saw a product test review for Affresh in good housekeeping magazine. I was ordering some stuff from Amazon anyway, so I added that to my order. When it came, I tossed one of the tablets into the bottom of the full machine, per instructions, and ran the regular cycle. I did not expect the results I got! My glassware that I thought was permanently etched and ruined came out like new. Same with cutlery. The difference is unbelievable. I will use this faithfully on a monthly basis, as recommended. I can even put it on my subscribe and save order, so I will get a new pack every 6 months. I am amazed!” —Sheila

A fan-favorite Wet brush with a cult following for a reason. It’ll detangle even the most stubborn hair…WITHOUT ripping it from your scalp.


instagram.com

Promising review: “I am that girl who wakes up in the morning with a HUGE knot in the back of my head! I DREAD getting out of the shower, with a wide tooth comb and painfully brushing out my hair. It takes about 15–20 minutes! With this new brush, at first I couldn’t believe it was actually brushing my hair (no pain) by the end of a few minutes, ALL of my knots were gone and my hair felt silky and smooth! WOW! Thank you Wetbrush!” —Chrissy

Get it from Amazon for $8.94 (available in 30 colors and patterns).

Promising review: “Best. Pet. Hair. Removal. EVER! This is better than any lint roller, vacuum, ANYTHING! We have two dogs (sometimes three when my daughter visits) and two cats, so we know about pet hair. These remove large quantities of hair in one application. Very easy to use. I have taken a love seat used by our cats for the past few years, cleaned it with BrazilianMat, and have re-purposed it for my study. Before BrazilianMat, I was considering throwing it out because I could not get all the pet hair off. I am ordering more today.” —Krista L. Cooper

Amazon, amazon.com

It’s filled with a cleansing + polishing solution to rid stones of clouding dirt and oil and ensure every facet shines. Just twist the bottom of the pen to dispense the fluid and brush on!

Promising review: “Don’t get me wrong — my wedding ring was gorgeous before. It did sparkle and still made me smile every day. However…after using this..*oh my goodness*! After one use of the Diamond Dazzle Stik..my ring is absolutely breathtaking! I knew my ring got dirty now and then, simply from sweating and being outside in the elements. However, I never realized just how much dinge and schmutz marred my beautiful diamond until I cleaned it. It literally took my breath away with its fiery, dazzling brilliance! My wedding ring is something that always makes my heart beat a little faster: for its beauty, for what it represents…and now, my smile is even bigger and my heart skips a beat a little more as I gaze upon this amazing clarity.

Promising review: “I’ve tried so many brands of pimple spots, and these are hands-down the best on the market. I’m a performer at Walt Disney World, and a clear complexion is required. Last night, I put these on a few acne problems (a small cyst, a Whitehead, and a pimple I shouldn’t have picked and has been a bump for about three weeks now.) I just woke up and am writing this review in disbelief. THEY’RE FLAT! Gone! All of them! I could cry I’m so happy. The packaging is also ideal, because it allows you to conveniently and easily peel the stickers off without stretching them out or folding them back on themselves. Do yourself and your complexion a huge favor! Have these on hand for a stubborn zit when you really need help. Make sure you apply them to completely clean and dry skin.” —Caitlyn

A pack of ethylene gas-absorbing produce bags to keep your fruits, veggies, and lettuce fresher for up to 10 TIMES longer. Strawberries are expensive, folks — now you can actually finish the whole container.

A fridge shelf with produce in the green-tinted bags


Amazon

Promising review: “I was somewhat skeptical as to whether or not these would work, but much to my delight, they work very well! The real test were the organic strawberries I bought. They’ve been in the bag in the refrigerator for eight days now and are still edible. Usually when I buy strawberries, they get mushy and moldy within a day or two. The other veggies I’ve used these bags for are also doing better than they normally do without the bag. More often than I’d like to admit, we buy a bunch of fruits and veggies and they go bad before we eat them. Thankfully, these bags are extending their edibility, so I’m not having to feed them to the chickens and donkeys. I’m very pleased with my purchase and definitely recommend them.” —Dallas Shopper

Promising review: “I bought these my mom’s car and mine a while back ago and these little things are great. Since I gotten my license I’ve hated merging or switching lanes; I never felt good or safe doing it. Since having these its been a blessing, I feel less like a scared new driver. I’m currently encouraging my sister and friends to invest in these too! These are also great for backing up, because you can see exactly how close you are to hitting the car behind. They’re helpful when I parallel park in the city, and I like parking backwards, so this great for doing that too.” —Mariam Abass

Each planter comes with a clip-on watering attachment for easy pouring!

Promising review: “I purchased six of these so far. And plan to purchase more. They are reliable, functional, easy to use, and my plants love them. They work well indoors and out. The little spout keeps water from getting everywhere. While they are absolutely perfect, a couple of suggestions: It’d be nice if the distance between the saucer and pot was ever so much increased so as to easily tell if more water is needed. Again, this is SO minor and will not affect my future purchases. AND I hope this company is so successful it can add more colors and styles. I plan to buy a half dozen more as my small plants grow a bit more.” —Brenda Daily

It’s bound on paper, which means it’s designed to STICK and STAY STUCK, but not leave residue no your floors when you *do* have to unstick it.

Promising reviews: “Finally, a product that works!!!!! I have bought at least 5 other products, trying to anchor my hallway runner to the floor since it slides everywhere on the laminate flooring. This tape is finally what worked. I will definitely buy it again for any future needs!” —LB

“I was skeptical, but needed to try yet again another rug keeper. This needed to hold down a 10’x14’ rug in our main living room on hardwood floor, withstand three children flying down the stairs in to the living room and the zoomies of two dogs. I’m writing this after about two to three weeks of the tape being down. THE RUG HAS NOT MOVED. I have not had to restick it down, no signs of peeling. NOTHING. This is the best rug keeper I’ve ever purchased. I do not have a ridiculous amount put down either, not even close to using half the roll. The rug also has no backing and is a braided type cotton fabric rug, all folded up I can’t lift it. It’s huge. Purchase this tape if you need to hold down a rug for real and want to stop fixing your rugs every time you walk past it!!!!” —I Am Anonymous

A drain clearing tool with a rotating handle and five replacement snakes with 4,000 micro hooks and a slim design to shimmy down any drain (you don’t even need to remove the cover) and snag all the hairs and goop that’s clogging the system — in one quick pull.

Reviewer's snake with all the gunk and hair it pulled out from a bathroom sink drain


amazon.com

Promising review: “I bought this after reading all the reviews, which sometimes I question because people do fake reviews all the time. But my tub had been stopped up for weeks with slow draining water. I had used all the chemicals to try and unclog it, but this little thing, although very simple, got the job done in two minutes. It didn’t go all the way down my drain pipes, but that’s just because of how my drain is made. I’d have to disassemble my drain for it to go all the way down. But where it did reach, it quickly and easily pulled out the hair and gunk out of my tub. Then immediately when I turned on the water it went right down. I was surprised at how easy it was. I’d recommend it and buy it again. It’s not so easy to clean, because it’s like cleaning lint from Velcro, but it’s doable with a little patience. Or you could just buy another one, they’re only $6 bucks!” —Alisha J. Barnes

A sink cleaner and polish formulated to use on stainless steel AND porcelain sinks (plus cast iron, Corian, acrylic, and more) to restore that just-like-new shine *and* protect against further damage. That new sink you’ve been wanting? It can wait, now.


amazon.com

I bought this recently for my white porcelain kitchen sink and I’ve since texted five people about it, which is really a lot for such a boring grown-up product. It cleans beautifully, but the *best* is its ability to repel stains after cleaning. You know that thing when you rinse out your coffee cup and the coffee water just lingers in your sink and you have to purposefully rinse it out for two minutes? You don’t have to do that — the coffee can’t stick to the sink and just goes RIGHT down the drain. Time saved, sink clean — this is really a Virgo dream product right here.

Promising review: “This amazing product saved us $1,000. This product is amazing!. We have a kitchen sink that was so stained and scratched that we were shopping around for a new one. My wife stumbled on this product and we decided to give it a try. I used my drill with a soft buffing attachment, and after about 30 minutes, the sink was like brand new!! Highly recommend this product.” —Joseph Rodriguez

A pack of houseplant sticky traps to end your gnat problem once and for all. No more stalking them in silence and trying to smack them out of the air.

Promising review: “After bringing a new houseplant into my home, I started noticing gnats. At first I didn’t think much about it, but then they got annoying! Thanks to BuzzFeed’s advertisement of this product, I quickly made the connection between the new plant and the arrival of the gnats. This thing has trapped about 100 so far and greatly reduced the number bothering me! (I had no idea one average sized plant could spawn so many gnats!). I replanted it this weekend in new soil and am hoping that helps, but these traps have helped significantly! The plant was from my dad’s funeral, so I hate to get rid of it…hoping the new soil will get things under control enough for the traps to take care of the rest.” —Missy

A bottle of Acure Brilliantly Brightening facial scrub that’ll say “boy bye” to dirt and oil, with sea kelp and French green clay to soften and detox your skin without removing all the moisture.

Promising review: “My new favorite scrub! It’s gentler than others that I’ve tried, but I think that makes it better. The soft seaweed exfoliates nicely and doesn’t cause micro-tears in my skin like apricot pits or walnut shells do in other scrubs. Most scrubs make my face look very red and irritated after using but this one doesn’t. I do think it brightens, too. I use it two or three times a week and I think my skin tone is evening out very nicely. Not too drying, either! Kind of moisturizing, in fact, which is great with a scrub.” —Megan S.

A deep-cleaning brush duo with a powerful scrubbing head for banishing grout discoloration and a wiping blade to reach the crevices, crannies, and nooks that never get cleaned.


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “This set is the best friend of those who hate cleaning bathroom fixtures. Instead of scrubbing and scraping, you can give a few comfortable whisks with one of these brushes and the job is done. The brushes are particularly good at quick-cleaning the back of the faucets where you normally can’t see what you are doing. Also good at keeping the silver drain rings shiny. Couldn’t be happier with this set. Recommend it highly.” —Rodger

A satin pillowcase to help maintain hair health even as you sleep, reducing pesky frizz and breakage when compared with regular cotton or other fiber pillowcases — that means longer-lasting blowouts and less damage in the long run.

A model reclining on the pinky-brown satin pillowcase


Amazon

Promising review: “I decided to purchase this pillow case after noticing hair breakage from one too many bleach jobs. I really wasn’t expecting a miracle, but this product has tremendously reduced the breakage! I love the zipper closure. It’s a sturdy zipper and covered with satin. Prevents my pillow from slipping out. It’s easy to toss in the washer and has withstood many washes! I now swear by satin pillow cases and will be ordering more from this brand!” —Nikki D.

A Luminoodle — an LED lighting strip you can affix to the back of your TV for a backlighting effect that’ll create sharper images, increase color contrast, and reduce eye strain.

A reviewer's TV: hazier and too bright in some places before, and sharper and clearer with the backlighting after


amazon.com

Promising review: “You will be surprised how well this works. I though it was a gimmick — but then read several articles about the benefits of bias lighting and though I would give it a try. Setting it up takes about five minutes — very simple. The surprise comes when you turn on the TV with the bias lighting and the picture POPS! The contrast and the black level jumps and the picture looks significantly improved! It supposedly relieves eye strain but I have never really had a problem with that so I can’t comment on that.” —Rgd18

A bug bite suction tool that’ll actually *remove* venom, saliva, or other irritants to ease swelling and stop those ‘squito bite itches once and for all. Good news: you don’t need to press that “x”-shape into your skin anymore with a fingernail.

A reviewer's bug bite in three images: the bite, the bite immediately after using the tool with a circular mark, and after with reduced swelling


amazon.com

It has a strong suction power, so be gentle and follow their directions!!

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 quick-drying top coat so you can finally stop saying “oh sheet!” when you see the indents pressed into your fresh manicure when you wake up in the morning. This baby’ll have you polish fully set looooong before you go to bed (like, in a few minutes after applying, max!).

The bottle of top coat


Amazon

Promising review: “NEVER GETTING MY NAILS PROFESSIONALLY DONE AGAIN. I love having long nails. I do not like spending fifty bucks just to get them painted. I tried the gel polish, with gel top coat; I tried the gel system with the lamps; I tried every polish out there. My hands get washed hundreds of times daily. This stuff is unbelievable. It really works the way they say it does. I applied it about one to two minutes after finishing a second coat of color and within minutes it had bonded and set and my nails stay shiny and polished for over a week. That is not the full two weeks claimed, but I am unusually hard on my nails so over a week is AWESOME. I immediately ordered several more.” —Amazon Customer

A roll of ~bamboo~ paper towels you can toss in the washing machine and reuse over *120 times*. They’re super-absorbent and durable, but are soft enough to use on your skin, too. You can even use them on your Swiffer!


Amazon

One roll of these will tackle a number of messes equivalent to 60 ROLLS of conventional paper towels.

Promising review: “I’ve had these bamboo towels for a month now and am incredibly impressed with their performance! They’re much larger than a regular paper towel, thicker, softer and more absorbent. I’ve washed the first ones I’ve torn off the roll several times now and they DO survive the laundry and perform just as well afterward. I’ve only used five bamboo towels this month, washed them and re-used. Several times. I would have been through a whole roll of Brawny by now. One caveat…when you wash them, you’re supposed to air dry them, so I haven’t sent any through the dryer. And I haven’t needed to, because allowing them to air dry has not affected the quality of the towels when I ‘re-roll’ them!” —A. Clark

A bottle of Poo-Pourri to squash beefs (and odors) over who dropped that big stinker in the toilet. This makes the worst bathroom odors a thing of the past — without a weird and heavy “masking” smell.

The large and small bottles of spray on a toilet, in the original citrus scent


instagram.com

Just spray *before* you go — the natural blend of essential oils and other ingredients creates a barrier so odors can’t escape the bowl. We’re not masking odors, we’re keeping them from happening *in the first place*.

Promising review: “One bathroom in an apartment just isn’t enough for two adults with a healthy colon. Enter Poo-Pourri. As this was the first time trying the product, I tried the original scent. It has an amazing lemon scent. It is very fresh and not overpowering. It is not synthetic smelling. With most room sprays, you end up just smelling flowery poo. This masks the smell completely. I can walk in the bathroom 30 seconds after my boyfriend and only smell lemon.” —Alison H.

Get it from Amazon for $9.26 (available in 17 scents and nine different bottle sizes).

A pack of Korean exfoliating cloths that’ll banish dead skin cells, winter dryness, and even help with Keratosis Pilaris.

The pack of green and pink cloths, four each


Amazon

I use these to exfoliate before shaving, and they’re really helpful.

Promising review: “I am Korean and I am so glad this is available on Amazon Prime as I no longer live in South Korea. After about a couple of years living in America, (devoid of ‘traditional’ spa time back home) I ‘learned’ my skin has Keratosis Pilaris. I never was aware of my skin condition until these magical washcloths were gone from my life. And you are also not supposed to use it on the face (no, not even the green one) but some Koreans DO that, I won’t. Also… you are suppose to use it no more than once a week! I read other reviewers talking about using it three to four times a week, I just hope they have skin made of iron. Red color is rougher and is for more experienced people or for rough parts like elbow and feet. Hope my review helps.” —Crazy Cat Lady

A stainless-steel soap bar to remove any odor (garlic! fish!) from your hands with a quick rub and rinse — no fancy scented soaps required.

Hand holding the stainless steel in the shape of a bar of soap


Amazon

Promising review: “Nobody likes smelly hands from working in the kitchen. And I have a volunteer job that involves working with animals that eat mouse and quail. There is nothing like the smell of mouse on your hand when you’re trying to eat lunch. I originally got one of these as it is able to be used in a zoo facility since it is just steel and isn’t something involving harsh chemicals that could harm animals. It has been working very well. Once I had success there, I bought three or four more as gifts for people who cook a lot and often cook with garlic, onions, meats, etc.” —CamilleElise

Folks, if that review doesn’t convince you, I don’t think you *can* be convinced.

Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (also available in fish, garlic, and mini shapes).

A four-pack of creaseless hair ties (yes, they totally look like old phone cords) so you can rock a ponytail all day and wear your hair down all night – no dents!

A model with one cord on a braid and one on their wrist


Amazon

And if they ever get stretched out, just immerse them in some hot water or put ’em under a blowdryer and they’ll shrink right back.

Promising review: “What is this witchcraft?! I’ve seen commercials for hair coils like these, figured might as well try it, and oh my goodness! ? Apart from how comfortable it is to wear on your wrist when you want to let your hair down, it’s indescribable magic has the coil regain it’s shape after being stretched out. Extremely happy with this product!” —Katastrophe

A carpet freshener you can use on indoor carpeting *or* in your car, whether you’re carting around messy kids, keep your gym gear in the back seat, or stop for french fries and don’t want your car smelling like McDonald’s forever.

Get it from SiVi Tidy Co. for $3.50 (available in five scents).

Promising review: “I don’t have carpet in my house so I wasn’t sure how I would use this. Welp I ended up using it as my car rug refresher and bam. It left my car smelling like pineapple and lavender. I could literally throw out those little cheap tree air fresheners I buy because the smell is strong. If you don’t like strong scents you may want to choose a lighter fragrance. However it worked for me and I love it. Every time someone gets in my car they ask me what air fresher I’m using.” —Alexis Scott

A Jergens in-shower lotion designed to be used on wet skin so you can get in, get out, and get on with your day. Mornings are hard enough!

A model holding the bottle in the shower


Amazon

It blends with the water on your skin and dries quickly so you don’t have to wait around before getting dressed.

Promising review: “I have always used and loved Jergens because it dried faster than other popular brands of lotions. When another lotion brand came out with their in-shower, rinse off lotion, I tried it and liked it — but it left my shower a horrible mess. I had to scrub my shower all the time. So this is a dream. It’s the same great, fast drying lotion that I love, but it is convenient to do in the shower and it doesn’t make my tub a mess to clean. I love the green tea scent. When I use it before bed, my skin is noticeably softer the next morning. And it’s is 100% more convenient than applying traditional lotions OR scrubbing my tub every other day.” —Bernie Moore

Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in three scents).

A five-in-one wine stopper that’ll also aerate, filter out cork particles, pour neatly, and re-cork the bottle.

Amazon

Promising review: “Don’t know what the ‘flavor’ category means with respect to these wine bottle stoppers but the stoppers work as advertised. A local vineyard was using them in their sample room so I assumed that since a vineyard was using them, they would work as advertised and they do. You can lay a wine bottle flat and it won’t leak. Nice that it filters out cork crumbs.” —Lawrol

A game-changing scrubber (it’s basically a scrubby sponge/dishcloth hybrid) that’ll dry super quickly, unlike regular sponges, so it cleans all your dishes without getting that horrifically funky mildew smell.

amazon.com

Just hang it from your faucet — it has an elastic loop just for that purpose.

Promising review: “I will say first, these feel so strange!!! They are super thin and rough feeling. I wasn’t convinced at first, especially since I bought these specifically to clean my new non stick pots. I was concerned that they would be too rough on the pots, but that’s not the case at all! They do an awesome job and are just rough enough to get the job done without harming the non stick layer. Also, they are so much cleaner than a sponge! They don’t get food caught in them and they never smell. Because of their super thin breathable material they dry quickly and don’t mildew. They also come with nifty little loops so I keep mine hanging from my sink faucet where I can grab it easily. I definitely recommend these, they are definitely worth the price.” —Elizabeth Casoria

Cable-hugging critters to take a ~bite~ out of the annoyance of fraying cords. No bent cord = no exposed wires, FINALLY.

The animal-shaped gadgets who hug cords to keep them from bending when plugged in, looking like they're "biting" the device


Urban Outfitters

Just clip ’em around any cable you have to reinforce it!

Get the original Cable Bite from Urban Outfitters for $6 each (available in two animals) or a similar version from Amazon $13.89 (for a 18-pack).

Promising review: “I bought a couple of these to reinforce a cord that has become weak due to normal wear and tear. I was hoping they were functional for a Galaxy phone (which I’m thrilled they are) but had no idea how extremely cute they would be. I’ve ended up buying SEVERAL more for stocking stuffers.” —jwow76

And as a quick bonus product for only $1.99 over our limit, a Migrastil roll-on stick to help evaporate your migraine or tension headache within minutes. Just apply the blend of essential oils (including lavender, spearmint, and peppermint) onto your temples, forehead, and the back of your neck — and POOF! Relief is here.


BuzzFeed / Amazon

Promising review: “Years ago a massage therapist I went to used a cream at my temples that helped greatly with headaches & nausea. I have tried to find that scent for years. THIS IS IT!! I use it daily on my temples and the back of neck just below my hairline. It helps 100% with the nausea I suffer from meds I take. Many of my headaches I can prevent from going to a migraine by applying again at start of headache. I take so many meds because of autoimmune diseases that I like not having to pop another pill for my headaches. I am the most skeptical person you will find when it comes to homeopathic or oils etc., but this works!!” —DVS
