    Promising review: "This is one of those 'Why didn't I think of that?' products. It solves a problem that everyone with a car has had: items dropped between the seats and center console. I bought two of these at a brick-and-mortar Walmart and was so happy, I ordered another eight sets for each car in the (extended) family online. Four sets have been installed so far in different model cars and each works perfectly." –WalmartCustomer

Here I was struggling with several canvas bags hurting my shoulders, arms, and hands. I asked my friend about it and she said she had hers for over two years with no problems.

    Promising review: "I have been using Turbie twists for years and even purchased some as gifts. I decided it was time to replace a couple of them that were worn due to daily use. Although the material has changed a bit since my original purchase, they are still very absorbent and stay firmly in place while I am getting ready in the morning. A must-have for anyone who gets frustrated when using a regular towel because they always fall off your head." –karghre

    Price: $4.98 (originally $16.98)

    As someone who gets horrible bug bites every summer, this has been a lifesaver. You have to use it as soon as you get bit, so make sure you have one in your car, your purse, or anywhere that's easy to grab.

    Promising review: "This padlock was perfect for our needs. My husband tends to lose keys. The only thing I find a problem is that when trying to open the padlock by fingerprint, it may take several attempts before the lock recognizes your print.

    Promising review: "I live alone and have painful, arthritic hands. I know about several tricks to get jars open and I tried every single one of them several times to get the lid off of a large jar of olives; however, I just was unable to open it. I had thought about buying this RoboTwist Electric Jar Opener many times before, but finally did once I had this jar that I just could not open. This product opened the jar on the first try!

The blades are sharp and cut the vegetables very easily; it can be cut into four different cuts and also comes with a small container where I can store what I cut in it! Highly recommended!!" –Tanya1987

    Price: $19.96

    Promising review: "Well worth the money . My Maltipoo and my Maltese just sat there and let me do all their nails. It costs less to do with this than taking my dogs to the groomer to get it done. Also has a light to help guide you, and it has sizes which you would choose depending the size of your dog's nails! What else can I say except I wish I would have found this sooner." –Tita4271971

    Price: $19.88

This pillow is a miracle! I have not had this severe pain for the past few nights since using this. It works better than I expected.

    Price: $17.99

    23. A nonstick baking pan with a built-in slicer so you can create 18 evenly sized brownies with one swift motion. This week's Star Baker prize has your name on it.

    Promising review: "This is a very incredible idea! I love the fact that the brownies are cut evenly, so no fight among our kids who gets a big slice. This is also easy to clean and looks very high end brownie pan. The thing l made a mistake is leaving the brownie slicer too long that the brownie sticks to it hard especially the brownie l made has caramel. I suggest taking the slicer out after about three to five minutes you let the brownie cool off." –jimjamster

    Price: $16.43 (originally $23.75)

    Promising review: "They are sooo soft and cozy! The first time I wore it to work, so many co-workers asked if they could pet it and wanted to know where I bought it. My daughter wears hers to college and doesn't want to take it off even when she gets a little too warm because she says it feels so good. My 17-year-old son practically lives in his. My husband is waiting for the weather to get colder before he wears his but I've already been informed that I need to get two for my niece and one for my daughter's boyfriend. *Warning*... if you plan on using this as loungewear, don't plan on getting anything done. You will be in 'lazy mode' until you force yourself to take it off." –Mom0505

    Price: $29.88

    25. An Egg Pod that cooks eggs using the microwave. You just simply shake the device to peel the shells, and you'll have perfect hard-boiled eggs every time.

    Promising review: "So being quarantined, I had seen this on an infomercial. I bought it online and decided to give it a try. It works!! I honestly didn't know for sure it would, but it did. No green yolks. I now can make deviled eggs! I couldn't before because I would tear them up trying to peel off the shell and then yolks would be green despite my best efforts. This product is awesome!" –aaamom1991

    Price: $14.88

    Promising review: "I have long thick hair and my shower drain was clogging all the time. I took out the existing drain and popped this in. Super easy. It totally catches so much hair and gunk (gross), but my drain hasn't clogged since. It does need to be cleaned frequently, but it is better than dealing with trying to snake out the drain." –Abby

    Price: $13.48

    27. A Pillow Pad that props your tablet or e-reader up so you can still marathon your favorite TV show or read your book while you're lying down or lounging on the couch.

Makes reading much more enjoyable and it is easy to use both devices when they are on the pillow. The handy pouch can hold a stylus or anything else you might want when using either my phone or my tablet. I threw it in the dryer as recommended to remove the wrinkles which was easy and effective. This is a great product!!" –Connie

    Price: $19.88 (available in four colors)

    28. An Ove Glove, which offers heat protection up to 540 degrees Fahrenheit and is perfect for baking, grilling, or handling camp fires. The five-finger mobility makes it superior to that clunky oven mitt you hate using.


    Promising review: "Love, love, love these. My third set and still have others for years. Works better than a mitt. You can use all five fingers for better control. I wash and bleach mine. Has never torn, only little stretched at the wrist. Doesn't cause a problem with me. Gave my son a set and others. Will buy again." –Nancy

    Promising review: "I have always wanted to use a skin-cleansing system. As I have aged, I seem to have more acne. I don't know if it's the change in hormones or what. Anyhow, I have used the weekly brush three times and the daily brush five times. My face looks very clean and refreshed. I use it in my shower so easy peasy." –Jo112

    Price: $19.88

    Price: $11.44 for a pack of 24 sticks

    31. A solar-powered spotlight that automatically turns on when it detects motion. It's also weather- and heat-resistant, so you can leave it outside all year long.

    Promising review: "I have been looking for a floodlight for the front and rear of my house for convenience and security. So I got two and found the installation very easy and quick. The lights were fully powered the same day at sundown. The lights remain on after motion detected for about 30 seconds. A recent power outage allowed me to test the extent of lighting when I used our ping-pong table on our driveway for a fun evening while the house was in darkness. My 12-year-old son and I played for over an hour with nonstop brilliant light. I have since installed two more for the front for late day basketball in the driveway and it's like Madison Square Garden!" –Joseph

    Price: $19.88
