    1. Dishwasher cleaning tablets so the machine you rely on to clean the things you use to eat isn't gunking them up even more.

    amazon.com

    These tablets remove odor-causing residue and help get rid of lime and mineral build-up that naturally occurs inside dishwashers. The tablet is designed to last throughout the entire wash cycle, and is recommended for use about once a month. These are safe to use in stainless-steel tub and plastic tub dishwashers.

    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 its 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 a 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, 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 six months. I am amazed!" —Sheila

    2. And while you're at it, you'll want to add this pack of washing machine cleaning tablets to your cart as well!

    amazon.com

    These are safe to use with front-load washing machines and top-load washing machines, and both high efficiency and conventional machines. Recommended to use once a month!

    Promising review: "I have been using bleach to clean my machine for some time, but decided to give this a try a few months ago. My very first clean with Affresh left me surprised and delighted, for not only did it clean my machine, it eliminated the nasty smell that always transferred to my clothes thanks to a build-up of mold I didn't even know about. Every month now, I toss a tablet into the drum and let it work its magic. Now, my machine is cleaner than ever, and my clothes always smell wonderfully fresh. I highly recommend this to everyone." —Kelli Crawford

    3. Cleaning K-Cups for the easiest, fastest way to get your beloved Keurig in the clean condition it should always be in to brew your favorite hot beverage.

    amazon.com

    All you have to do is put one of these babies in like you would with any other K-Cup, brew one large cycle, watch dirty water get cleaned out, throw the pod away, and then return to brewing your faves.

    Promising review: "We’ve had our Keurig for a few years, and with the exception of using only filtered water and dispensing hot water every so often, we’ve never cleaned the needle or K-Cup area. I used three cleaning cups back to back and WOW our machine was dirty! I'm so happy I purchased these! I’ll be keeping up on cleaning these more often." —Heather Garcia

    4. Acne patches you can apply to areas where you're breaking out. Let it sit overnight or throughout the day, peel it off, and watch it take all the pore-clogging gunk with it.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    These patches contain hydrocolloid dressing with a hint of tea tree oil, calendula oil, and cica. The ingredients in this are gentle, ideal for all skin types and tones!

    Promising review: "I can't believe how much money I've spent on acne products over the years before I found this. Of all the products with glowing reviews, these patches have been the most effective and worth their cost. I have sensitive combo skin and deal with adult acne on a daily basis. Since my face has dry areas, I'm also more likely to pick at it (TMI, sorry). It's terribly embarrassing to go to work with these kinds of issues day after day, so in addition to taking a prescription, I've been on the hunt for anything topical that would help. The first time I used one of these patches, I put it on at night. The next morning, I woke up and was kind of shocked. It actually did what it was supposed to do. You peel off the patch, and with it comes at least 90% of the nastiness that was clogging your skin. It DRASTICALLY reduces the size of the zit. I've also experimented with using these on cystic acne, and they work wonders for speeding up the clearing and healing process. Also, they're comfortable to wear and stay on your face pretty well overnight!" —Greta H

    5. A rain glass treatment to repel rain water, so you can drive in storms with peace of mind that you can actually see the road ahead clearly.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had a cheap, untempered windshield which was awful in the rain. A friend of mine from college recommended Rain-X and I was shocked at the difference. I applied it with a soft rag and sat there wondering if it was even on properly. I trusted the system and then later that night took my car out for a drive; it rained while I was out and the difference was instantly noticeable. Before, when using my wipers, streaks would obscure my view so much that any lights would make driving in the rain hard. Now, the droplets don't smear and smaller ones sometimes just roll off. It's pretty great." —Alison J. Gong

    6. A bottle of gourmet truffle hot sauce that'll make you wonder how you ever ate any food ever without drizzling this amazing stuff on it.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Purchased this because it's one of Oprah’s favorite things. As a truffle and hot sauce lover, this is what you get when truffle and hot sauce had a baby but 10 times better. I highly recommend this, because it helps my food taste better." —Linzy nguyen

    Get it from Amazon for $17.98.

    7. Teeth-whitening pens to help brighten up your teeth in a matter of minutes. It's recommended to avoid eating or drinking 30 minutes after, but other than that, you can go on living your busy life as soon as you're done using the pen.

    It can literally get your teeth four to eight times brighter! Each pen is good for 20 uses!

    Promising review: "This the best whitening product I have used. It takes about two minutes total. Brush, floss, wipe dry, and apply. Easy! There is no tooth sensitivity, no bad taste, no light you have keep in your mouth for five minutes, and no having to keep your mouth open until it dries. Will definitely be ordering more!" —Christine Thexton

    8. An Instant Pot that'll pretty much become your new favorite gadget — this thing is a pressure cooker, a slow cooker, a rice cooker, a steamer, a sauté-r, a yogurt maker, and a warmer all in ONE.

    The Instant Pot on a counter surrounded by various ingredients
    Amazon

    It can prepare food up to 70% faster than other methods. It can keep food warm automatically for up to 10 hours, and there are three temperatures for sautéing and slow-cooking. The inner cooking pot, lid, and steam-rack are dishwasher-safe! Check out our write-up about the incredible Instant Pot!

    Promising review: "This is quite possibly the coolest, most versatile kitchen gadget I’ve ever owned. I love it so much that I’ve purchased two more for friends and relatives. What can it do? I think the real question is 'What can’t it do?' I truly believe you could replace every cooking appliance (including your oven and stove top) and do EVERYTHING in the Instant Pot. I purchased two sizes for my own use: the 3-quart (which is my almost-every-day workhorse for two person dishes) and the 8-quart (which I bring out to handle my dinner party dishes). Everything I’ve tried has been fabulous. In the realm of kitchen appliances, there is no better investment than the Instant Pot. Highly recommended!!!" —Stereoman

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in three sizes).

    9. A TubShroom to collect your hair while in the shower/bath, so you don't have to worry about your drains getting clogged up and creating more work for yourself.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This fits any standard 1.5-inch tub drain or bathroom sink drain. But, if you want to keep your hair-catching separate between your tub and sink, then treat yourself and your home to the SinkShroom!

    Promising review: "This is absolutely worth every penny. Kudos to the inventor of this product. I have thick long dark hair, and after two months of moving into my own apartment, my shower drain was completely clogged with all my hair. After being disgusted at the amount of hair I had to clean out with a snake (which is NOT a fun task), I decided I needed to purchase something to prevent it from happening again. I read about this product in a BuzzFeed article, and I have no regrets. It is so satisfying to clean out, and it does not lie when it says it catches every single hair. I have had it for close to four months without once instance of my shower drain backing up. This product is absolutely worth it." —JT

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in five colors).

    10. A stain and odor remover that'll be no match for messes and unpleasant smells left behind by fur babies. An immaculately clean carpet AND a wonderful snuggle buddy? Yes, you can have both!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm not going to lie, this stuff is significantly more expensive than most other available carpet sprays. You could probably buy four or five bottles of Febreze for the cost of this stuff, but the competition won't work nearly as well as Rocco & Roxie. This stuff is AMAZING." —Brian

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    11. Water bottle cleaning tablets to get your beloved drinking bottle back to the condition it was in when you first fell in love with it at the store. I, for one, don't feel like taking a brush and soap and scrubbing away, and I'm going to make a fair assumption that you don't want to either.

    amazon.com

    Tablets are biodegradable, chlorine-free, all-natural, and environmentally safe. They're individually packaged, and don't require any additional brushing or scrubbing. Good for use on stainless-steel bottles, mugs, hydration reservoirs, coolers, dishes, and hard-to-clean plastic containers and bottles.

    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

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $8.

    12. Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser – a conditioning face wash that'll feel nice and gentle on ultra-sensitive skin, but contains the same cleaning agents found in contact lens solution so it's powerful in its abilities.

    Ayseha Mittal / BuzzFeed, Glossier

    This can either be used on dry skin to help dissolve makeup, or on wet skin to start your day. It's made of five skin conditioners to help leave your face feeling soft. It's hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested, ophthalmologist-tested, claims to be good for all skin types, noncomedogenic, cruelty-free, vegan, and soap-, paraben-, and sulfate-free. Check out our review of the amazing Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser (#2).

    "I have extremely sensitive skin, and back in fall 2019 I experienced a sudden onset of cystic acne all over my face, went on birth control for it in December, and now six months later, my skin is completely clear and I'm finally wanting to try all of these skincare products I was too scared to use. As someone who was using Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser for YEARS, I was nervous to make the switch to Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser, and full expected I'd try it once and have to retire it.

    Quite the opposite actually. This cleanser is truly SO gentle. Rather than leaving my skin feeling hot and irritated like some skincare products do, this leaves my skin with a cooling sensation and I actually really look forward to washing my face in the morning and at night, rather than dread it. I haven't worn makeup much lately, but the few times I have since buying this cleanser, it's done an excellent job of removing my makeup, and I can go to sleep with peace of mind that my pores aren't clogged up." —Sam Wieder (aka, ME!)

    Get it from Glossier for $9+ (available in two sizes).

    13. A cooktop cleaning kit because look: you're using the thing to make your meals, so naturally it's going to get dirty. Sometimes things fall out of the pot, sometimes things splatter from the pan, and sometimes burns happen because you're too busy dancing to the Jonas Brothers and forgot about your pasta... Not speaking from personal experience!

    On the top, a reviewer stovetop looking dirty, and on the bottom, the same reviewer's stovetop now looking completely clean after using the kit
    amazon.com

    Comes with a 10-ounce bottle of cooktop cleaner, a cleaning pad, and a scraper. It helps to clean grease, stains, and remove burnt and baked-on deposits.

    Promising review: "As soon as I used this stuff, I couldn't believe it! We had a new stove that I didn't clean for months and assumed the burnt pea juice (my enemy) would just be a new stain forever. However, after one application, it was basically gone. I used the scraper that came with it and did one more small application on just that spot, and it was gone! Every time I use this it looks like my stove could be brand-new." —Christi

    Get it from Amazon for $11.50.

    14. A migraine stick to help stop painful migraines in their tracks. As a migraine sufferer myself, I know how difficult it is to accomplish anything when a migraine hits, and there just aren't enough hours in the day to waste them on nursing yourself back to a fully functioning human when you get one.

    Read our write-up of this miracle migraine stick!

    Promising review: "I have had tension and migraine headaches for around 20 years. I have tried everything. OTC medication, prescription medication, pain injections, chiropractor etc... This topical oil has given me relief for nearly six weeks now. I have only had two to three headaches in that time, and they were mild. I ordered more already so I have some in my car and at home, and I bought some for two of my friends who suffer from chronic migraines. I would recommend this product to anyone with migraines. It is phenomenal." —Mary D.

    15. An electric wine bottle opener that'll make removing the cork on your bottle of vino easy peazy.

    A reviewer photo of the electric wine opener being charged
    amazon.com

    Can open up to 30 bottles on a single charge, and features a simple push-button operation. Plus, it has a comfy, soft-grip handle.

    Promising review: "As a senior citizen, I find that opening a bottle of wine can be a challenge using a manual corkscrew. This opener is great. You place it on the bottle with one hand, while holding the bottle with the other, and press a button. The corkscrew goes into the cork and will stop when it's fully inserted. Press the button again and it will remove the cork from the bottle, and then continue until the cork comes off of the corkscrew. So much easier than doing it manually. I've used it at parties and the charge will last between 20 to 30 bottles. It also comes with a charging stand and a cutter for the paper wrapped on the bottle neck." —CharmY2K

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    16. A natural stain remover to keep you and your family's life clean as can be with a product you can feel good about anyone using, and not worry about the kiddos accidentally getting a hold of.

    amazon.com

    This spray is great for removing grass, berry, blood, sweat, oil, tomato sauce, cosmetic, pet accident, dirt stains and odors, and more! It's good to use on clothing, linens, silk, carpets, floor mats, car seats, cloth diapers, and other washable fabrics! It's free of hard chemicals, animal by-products, and petroleum-based ingredients.

    Promising review: "I've tried several stain removers and have to say this stuff really does remove stains. It has removed: blood, grape juice, baby barf, chocolate, grass stains, sweat stains, melon, pretty much everything. I have to say I was almost shocked at how well this worked. My wife says they should rename it 'chill mom,' because she no longer worries about stains at all. That's priceless when you have a very curious and adventurous little boy who keeps finding new ways to get dirty." —Martin Isaksen

    17. A 3-in-1 avocado slicer for splitting, pitting, and slicing the green stuff known as nature's butter. Less time fanagling with silverware and more time eating avocado toast — win/win.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Features a soft, comfy nonslip grip. This is dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "I used to laugh at this kind of product until my friend was using hers. It made it all so easy! Honestly, I can't believe someone as clumsy as me was functioning without it. Where I used to use a knife and spoon or fork to deal with avocados, it's now just this one thing. Each part of the tool does its job really well, and it's easy to clean. Love it so much. Even if you're not a clever tool kinda person, just get it. It's worth it." —kikikitten

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    18. Bar Keepers Friend soft cleanser to help you get a bunch of surfaces and objects in your home looking as good, if not better, than the day you purchased them.

    On the left, the bottom of a sink looking dirty, and on the right, the same sink now looking clean
    amazon.com

    For those who are fans of the Bar Keepers Friend Classic Cleanser and Polish, this delivers the same results, but in a pre-mixed formula to make for a quicker clean. It works well against rust stains, tarnish, mineral deposits, soap scum, and indoor and outdoor grime, and is especially good on the following surfaces: stainless steel, brass, bronze, copper alloys, aluminum, ceramic, porcelain, glass, Corian. Recommended to use in the kitchen (sinks, cookware, stove cooktops and exteriors, oven door windows, non-stone countertops, and plates to buff out knife marks), bathroom (sinks, bathtubs, showers, faucets, toilets, tile, and grout), and outdoors (rust stains, grills, vehicles, siding, and sporting equipment).

    Promising review: "I was so bummed when I scratched up my pretty white sink with pots and pans. I thought I'd need to have it replaced or try to sand it and refinish it somehow, but I bought this stuff as a last ditch effort to fix it myself. It takes some elbow grease to make them go away, the scratches don't just wipe off. But if you scrub at them for a few minutes they melt away pretty quickly. After two rounds my sink looks nearly brand-new again. It also worked on a few mineral stains in my bathtub that I thought were permanent after soft scrub failed to remove them. Again, a little of this stuff, the scrubby side of a blue sponge, a little bit of effort and they were gone!" —Dan Borden

    19. Lifting pads you can just press down into rug stains — ya know, things from pets, spilled drinks, blood, dirt, and more — keep it there for up to 24 hours, and say adios stains!

    On the top, a wet stain on a carpet, and on the bottom, the same carpet, now clear of the stain after using the pad
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These things are AMAZING. They are magical. If you have a pet who has accidents in the house, these are a MUST-HAVE. After your pet has an accident, all you need to do is open up the packet, place the pad on the accident spot, and then step on the pad to release the magic formula. Leave it there for at least a half an hour or up to 24 hours. Why the discrepancy, you might be asking? Because these pads work on DRIED STAINS. Holla!!!! My puppy has been driving me bonkers with accidents in the house, but I don't sweat it anymore thanks to these pads. They are seriously miracle workers and I will always have a supply of them in my house going forward." —Lisa Koivu

    20. An anti-fog spray perfect for those who are now all too familiar with the struggle of their glasses getting fogged up while wearing a mask.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this product because wearing a face mask makes my glasses fog, even with the metal strip to form around the bridge of my nose. It works all day with only one application, unless I have been doing a lot of activity, then I might have to re-apply. Just spray it on the clean lenses of your glasses then wipe dry with a clean dry lintless cloth, as simple as that. I was so impressed that I gave my second bottle to my team members for them to use. Delivery was fast. I highly recommend this product from this company. I would not hesitate to buy this again when I need more in the future." —Tonya Crippen

    Promising review: "After multiple containers for my brown sugar and continuously throwing my brown sugar away due to giant hard lumps, I began to wonder why our brown sugar never lumped as a child. That's when I remembered a weird brown bear in our sugar, After a quick Google search I found this! I soaked it in water for 30 minutes and then added to my lumpy brown sugar...two days later there is not a single lump in my sugar! Yay!" —Sneezeloaf

    22. A Dyson vacuum that can easily transform between being a cordless stick vacuum and a handheld vacuum, so it's versatile in cleaning just about every part of your home — even the ceiling.

    Amazon

    This is a cord-free vacuum! It can run for up to 30 minutes when using a non-motorized tool. It requires being charged for a minimum of 3.5 hours before first use! Plus, it has a hygienic emptying bin, because we don't think you should have to touch the yucky stuff you're suctioning up. It can be quickly transformed into a handheld vacuum! Be sure to check out our write-up of this amazing Dyson vacuum.

    Promising review: "I’m a dog-lover and my wife is not. Over the years, she has graciously agreed to have golden retriever with the big downside being the amount of shedding. The hair everywhere drives her nuts. Enter this vacuum: it has revolutionized pet ownership in our household! We have a nice canister vacuum, but it’s heavy, and it’s a hassle to get out. So, that meant we often let dog hair accumulate and didn’t vacuum every day. This vacuum is so lightweight, so simple to use, and so effective at picking up dog hair that we take it down from its handy wall mount and use it a couple times a day. My wife’s stress levels have dropped dramatically! This is a great vacuum and I highly recommend it, especially if you are constantly battling pet hair." —Ron Watts

    Promising review: "I was a skeptic, but now I AM a believer. This mixed up honey is absolutely fabulous. I ordered three bottles more after my initial order. Why? Because it is really good on everything. And I mean EVERYTHING. Soft pretzels, toast, biscuits, waffles, cereal, yogurt, ice cream, and definitely pizza. Gives everything in your kitchen a small kick of sweet heat flavor without burning your mouth. I have told many of my friends about this magical elixir and they all agree — this is the BEST specialty honey any of us have ever had. Don’t hesitate to buy it. It is absolutely wonderful stuff. I most HIGHLY recommended!" —Jeff R. Clow

    The PhoneSoap in aqua
    @phonesoap / Via instagram.com

    We recently purchased a PhoneSoap for our house, and I have to say, it's really great! It's so easy to use! You just put in your phone, your keys, credit cards, cash, etc., closet the cover, and in about 10 minutes, it's clean! It's much easier and a lot less wasteful than having to wipe down everything with wipes. Plus, during this time of life, it gives extra peace of mind that things we touch and use regularly are sanitized after running out to do errands.

    Promising review: "What a perfect gadget for getting your phone clean. After touching who knows what while commuting to work, and it being that time of year everyone around you gets sick, this comes in handy. After the first use it looked great, and then I wiped it down with the sponge that came with it. I feel so much better about using my phone now." —Crystal Gardner

    25. Silicone face mask brushes that'll make applying your favorite masks super easy, and a lot less messy (re: not getting your hands all dirty). Plus, reviewers boast about how simple these babies are to clean.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love these! I was sick of having to scrape face mask gunk out from under my nails so these are a great alternative — plus I can use each for a different product if i'm using two at a time, and not risk cross-contamination. They are a little wide though, so they might not fit in all jars and some you might have to scoop the product out first onto another surface for that reason, or if like me, you use a volcanic clay mask, the product bends the silicone a bit if you try to scoop it from the jar since the clay is thick and the silicone is flimsy. BUT, the good news is they won't break from bending AND they are really easy to clean and wipe off!! Adore these and am definitely never going back to brushes that have fibers." —Amazon Customer

    Good for removing spots and stains from colorfast carpet, rugs, upholstery, and clothing without leaving a sticky residue or needing to rinse or vacuum. To use, apply to the stain, gently agitate with your fingers, and blot with absorbent cloth. This is nontoxic and should be nonirritating on the skin!

    Promising review: "I had terrible rust and oil stains all over the seats of my car when I bought it. I tried other cleaners to get it out, but they actually made the stains darker. I took it to the dealership to see if they could get it out and they flat out told me no, so I gave up and lived with it for almost five years. I tried this after it was recommended by a friend. I sprayed it on and literally watched the stain run right off my seat. It was amazing! I thought I was going to have to pay hundreds of dollars to replace the seats in my car because nothing else would work. This stuff really is awesome!" —Brittany

    Promising review: "I bought these for my mom's car and mine a while ago and these little things are great. Since I got 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.

    Includes one 2.5-cup container and one 17.3-cup container. Features a CrispTray to help keep moisture away and FreshVent technology to regulate oxygen and carbon dioxide flow. These are dishwasher-safe and BPA-free. Read a BuzzFeeder's review of these amazing Rubbermaid FreshWorks containers.

    Promising review: "I wish I would have gotten these sooner. I bought strawberries for my children, and then I forgot about them. I found them in the back of the refrigerator almost TWO WEEKS later, and they were still good. The real miracle is how long it keeps zucchini. Zucchini starts to get mushy in the crisper drawer after just a few days. Again, these miracle containers have kept it fresh for close to two weeks now. I've kept cut lettuce, cut cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, cucumbers, zucchini, sliced bell peppers, strawberries, blackberries, cut jicama, and carrots in these containers. I've had fantastic results with all of them." —Laura

    The weight of the blanket you choose, should be about 10% of your body weight plus one.

    Promising review: "Over the past few years I’ve developed terrible sleep habits and thought that was just how it was going to be. I ordered this when it came up on a sale, and it has completely changed my sleep habits. No more night terrors, flopping around, laying awake for hours, or wild dreams. I’ve been sleeping through the night since having this blanket. The blanket doesn't make me hot, instead it’s a cozy warmth." —Ryan Westmoreland

    Promising review: "Okay, I don’t normally rave about things like this. I bought this on a whim in a last attempt 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." —Dena Jensen

    32. A plant food spike to keep your plants fed for up to two months!

    It's recommended to change the spikes every 30 days during the spring and summer months!

    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 package for quantity), and approximately a month after using these spikes, my peace lily had three flowers on it, and my African violets plants all got several blooms on them! This worked wonders for my plants that don't flower also! I noticed that my ivy and cactus plants started growing faster, and they became more green and healthy looking. I am very happy with this product, and I will buy it again." —Elizabeth

    What you'll get: Your first box comes with a handle in a pretty color of your choice, a magic magnetic holder, and two blades. Depending on how often you shave, they'll send your four refill blades every month, two months, or three months. Also! Their shaving cream is not to be overlooked and can be added to your order for $8. It'll leave skin feeling extra smooth and you only need to use a nickel-sized amount! Eight BuzzFeed Shopping Editors tried out Billie and all of them LOVED it — be sure to check out our full review of the incredible Billie razor subscription!

    "So I recently gave in to see what the Billie hype was all about — as someone who was perfectly content buying a pack of multiple razors for about the same price, my expectations were't super high when it came to Billie, but I knew so many of my co-workers loved their Billie razors. Well, after a month, I am here to say, I am a Billie razor fan for life, and I will never turn back. The charcoal soap surrounding the blades really makes for the absolute smoothest shave — like I truly just glides against your skin and doesn't leave behind nicks or razor bumps. The magnetic holder and the pretty, sturdy handle all make the Billie experience even better. Trust me, it's worth all the hype and more." —Sam Wieder (aka, ME!)

    Get it from Billie for $9/initial box, and $9 per each blade re-fill box.

    34. A wrinkle release spray to get your clothing, sheets, and more looking as if they were just ironed or picked up from the cleaners without needing to go through the trouble of doing either of those things.

    Promising review: "This year I have been attending medical school interviews all over the country. I have ONE suit that I do not have the money to continuously dry clean between interviews. I bought these to keep with me when traveling so my suit remains pressed and fresh. I typically spray it and do not hot iron it (as it's time consuming and I have other things to worry about on interview day like answer prep and transportation). Really does what it says, would be great to keep clothes crisp and nice smelling, especially if you have a garment that wrinkles easily and you don't feel like ironing before each wear." —Taylor

    35. A rapid egg cooker so you don't have to waste your precious time standing over the stove waiting for your eggs to finish cooking. I own this, and lemme tell ya, it's a pretty wonderful thing being able to watch Netflix and not keep a hawk-eye view on my omelet in the mornings.

    Samantha Wieder / BuzzFeed

    When I tell you that I think this is one of my all-time favorite purchases ever, I'm not EGGagerating.... but really, I'm not. I pretty much use this every single day. Let me start by saying that the pieces themselves were self-explanatory. I opened this when I was VERY hungry and therefore had no patience to read an instruction manual, and found it super quick to figure out what to do.

    It can boil up to six eggs at a time. It comes with a little measuring cup with a needle at one end that you simply pierce the larger top of the egg with, place the egg on one of the six slots of the tray with the pierced side facing up, fill the measuring cup to the soft, medium, or hard line depending on your preference, pour the water through center hole, cover the cooker, plug it in, and press the button. It makes a sound in the form of a pretty cute (and TBH, kinda catchy) song when it's ready, so you don't have to sit and wait around. This also comes with a poacher tray and an omelet tray that are just as easy to use! I've been on a kick with the omelet tray lately, because it's just a million times better than having to stand over the stove. Be sure to check out our write-up of this awesome egg cooker!

    36. A face mask chain to help make carrying around and wearing a mask easier (and trendier). Having to dig through your bag or put your mask down on a surface when it's not being worn is now a thing of the past.

    Promising review: "So my grandmother told me about this product when I was young, about 20 years ago or so. I use it all the time! THIS STUFF WORKS! It works really well too. My nails grow really long in a few weeks and I get to decide when to cut them off. Women ask me about them all the time, 'How do you get such white nail tips?' Well, it's because of this." —Halie Brake

    Get it from Amazon for $7.94.

    39. An oven cleaning spray so next time you go to open the oven door and pop in dinner, you're not tempted to puke all over it because of the yucky build-up you've let it accumulate.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Good for use on ovens, broilers, and barbecue grills. Only takes about five minutes to spot clean.

    Promising review: "My oven was in bad shape. I had tried doing the whole baking-soda-and-peroxide trick, but it made things worse. I tried this after seeing it in a BuzzFeed article and it actually worked! Let it sit for about four hours and the nastiness wipes off effortlessly." —Natalie C

    Get it from Amazon for $11.65.
