    1. A hair finishing stick for putting fussy, fly away hairs in their rightful place — neatly styled with the rest of your hair, of course!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    It's made of all natural ingredients and is suitable for all hair colors!

    Promising review: "I have super fine hair with lots of breakage. No matter how I put my hair up I have bad flyaways. This stuff is great! So easy and it stays better and looks smoother than stiff hair spray." —Jill Stilfield

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

    2. An acne cleanser that helps to reduce excess oils on the skin that often lead to not-so-fun breakouts.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've tried many, many face washes for blemish prone skin in my lifetime and this is one of my favorites. It's very mild, lathers beautifully, and leaves your face feeling extremely clean without being tight or stripped of moisture. There was a noticeable difference in the clearness of my skin within the first week of use! I like to wipe my makeup off with a microfiber cloth first, then wash my face with this cleanser to get off the first layer of makeup and gunk. I have many problems with my skin, and this seems to really work for me in terms of gently yet effectively controlling oiliness, acne, and blackheads specifically." —Shoko

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    3. A selfie ring light to provide studio-quality lighting to all of your photos — because it's 2019 and it's ALL about getting the best picture possible for your grid, ya feel?

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This selfie ring light is well-made. The tripod is sturdy, but lightweight, and the ring light is bright. The tripod can be set at various heights depending on the occasion, and yet it is very compact to carry around. It can stand on the floor, or be set-up on a desk — very flexible. The ring light has three modes: warm yellow, warm white, and white, as well as 10 levels of brightness. It is suitable for all kinds of lighting needs. Also, the phone clip is easy to put on and easy to secure the phone in place. I use this for selfies and for video conferencing. It works really well." —Di W.

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99.

    4. A Dash air fryer that'll have you enjoying "fried" versions of all your favorite foods, minus all the yucky oils.

    amazon.com

    Features a six quart capacity fryer basket, and an auto-shutoff function to prevent overcooking. All non-electric parts are dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "I was very glad to join the air fry bandwagon with this Dash Air Fryer. I have mostly used it for frozen foods such as egg rolls, chicken tenders, and fish fillets so far. I use parchment paper to help with the clean-up. In some cases it comes out better with no oil at all. Definitely a more nutritious cooking alternative!" —Michael from San Diego

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99 (available in four colors).

    5. A surface cover to transform your kitchen counters and tablets into beautiful marble pieces, without needing to spend the time or money on calling a professional to re-do your kitchen.

    amazon.com

    Check out our write-up of this inexpensive and super cool marble adhesive surface cover!

    Promising review: "I wanted to spruce up my rented apartment's kitchen counter, and this contact paper did not disappoint. The contact paper is super sticky, but no matter how many times you messed up (and I've messed up A LOT!), the contact paper will still be sticky. There is a technique to sticking it so you don't get bubbles (we used credit cards to force out the bubbles), so you will have to play around with it. Highly recommend it!" —G. Chen

    Get it from Amazon for $5.88+ (available in four sizes).

    6. A fabric defuzzer you just glide over an area of clothing/furniture that's covered in unwanted fuzzies.

    amazon.com / amazon.com

    Check out our write-up of this magical fabric defuzzer! The battery-operated model requires two AA batteries that aren't included, but you can buy some right here!

    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." —Sydney Jensen

    Get it from Amazon for $11.64+ (available in eight colors, and two styles).

    7. Clip-on hair bangs to test out your dream hairstyle, without having to actually commit.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had very LOW expectations for this. I accidentally cut my bangs too short the other night because my puppy distracted me mid cut. I thought it would be funny to buy this and wear it one day. I got it for laughs mostly, not really expecting it to look normal. AND OMG I AM SHOCKED! First of all, it's the exact same shade as my hair color. It was super easy to put on. The hair feels soft and realistic. I am so beyond amazed. So far, no one has been able to tell that the bangs are fake! I love them!" —Jrod

    Get them from Amazon $5.99 (available in 25 colors).

    8. A pack of furniture touch-up sticks you'll wish existed back when you were a little one, because maybe then your parents would have THANKED YOU instead of grounding you for drawing on household furniture. 🤷

    amazon.com

    Includes six repair markets, six paper-wrapped wax sticks, and one wax stick sharpener packaged in a blister card. Plus, it comes with six different colors — maple, oak, cherry, walnut, mahogany, and black. To use, just draw over a scratch/scuff/discoloration on your wooden furniture, allow it to dry quickly, and bam! It's magic.

    Promising review: "Better than expected. Blends perfectly and leaves a beautiful sheen. Used them on different shades of wood cherry, oak, and mahogany. I blended several shades of markers on each piece. Blended easily and matched perfectly to the different shades of woods. Used on claw foot dining table, chippendale chair legs, Grandfather clock, china cabinet. All look sensational. Covered sweeper scuffs well. They look new now, not touched up. These stain quickly so wear disposable gloves and cover floors where you are working. Excellent results." —PhoebeS

    Get a pack of 13 from Amazon for $9.99.

    9. 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.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Be sure to check out our write-up of this miracle wrinkle release spray!

    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

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $13.94+ (available in two scents).

    10. A mascara with a cult-following and for good reason. It delivers million dollar-looking lashes for less than $10, is extra great for those with sensitive eyes, and will carry you through your longest of days without wearing away or running.

    amazon.com

    Check out our review of this fabulous mascara!

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this mascara. I have very sensitive eyes and am highly devoted to my trusted brands. When a friend suggested this mascara I was curious, as she loved it. For the price point and how good it looked on her eyes, I thought why not. Holy moly. I'm in love. It makes my lashes longer, — looks like I'm natural but better — and has a thinner formula so it looks like I have a billion gorgeous lashes, and looks the same all day long. I cannot recommend this enough. It doesn't rub during the day and give me that black eye look. It's wonderful. Must buy. —Katherine Ochsman

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    11. A pro-collagen cleansing balm to help leave your skin feeling soft, nourished, and clean.

    amazon.com

    This balm is infused with Elderberry, Starflower, and Optimega oils as well as algae Padina Pavonica, PLUS a blend of nine essential oils to help your skin feel clean and nourished. It also comes with a soft cleansing cloth. To use, simply warm it into your palms and massage it over your face and neck with light circular massage movements, then moisten your fingers, and continue massaging. To remove, wipe with a warm, damp cotton cleansing cloth. It can also be used as a face mask! To do this, apply a teaspoon of it to the face and neck, massage it in gently with your fingers, relax for 10 minutes, and then hold a warm, damp cleansing cloth over your skin, and gentle wipe away.

    Promising review: "I'm hooked! My skin is acne-prone, oily, and super sensitive. I usually alternate between Murad Clarifying Cleanser and Philosophy Purity Made Simple. I can use the aforementioned with the balm, or just the balm on its own. Using the cloth also makes it go the extra mile. Deep cleans, softens, and smooths the skin. Huge bonus: it smells like spa heaven!! I've been recommending to everyone! Even my husband loves it, and that's saying something!!" —Teeniebkln

    Get it from Amazon for $64 (available in two varieties).

    12. A screen cleaning kit because things like fingerprints and dust can make our precious laptops and iPhones look foggy and gross. This will turn back time to when you first pulled it out of the box looking shiny and new.

    amazon.com

    This spray is free of alcohol, ammonia, and harmful phosphates. It's also streak-free! It can be used to clean HDTV's, PC monitors, Kindle Fire, tablets, laptops, smartphone displays, Apple Mac products, iPhones, and more! Plus, it comes with an extra-large, scratch-free microfiber cloth.

    Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely incredible. I've had my MacBook for a few months now and in the college environment of lugging it back and forth to class, eating around it and doing group projects it had turned into a grease machine. I had tried just about every version of microfiber cloth, the sprays that promise they don't streak, and just about every electronic wipe on the market. To no avail, I went to Amazon and with the glowing reviews, I couldn't say no to giving it a try. Got it today and I am just blown away. Never have I felt the need to write an Amazon review, but here I am because it's just. that. good. Attached are pictures for proof, it works people! Ordering a travel size version to keep in my backpack as we speak!" —McKenzie Meuleveld

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

    13. A wood polish and conditioner to help restore your wooden furniture back to factory condition. Did you just get your entire house re-done by an HGTV crew, or are you just super good at picking out cleaning products?

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Gives your wooden furniture a protective, soft luster coating thanks to Carnauba wax and beeswax. It also prevents it from drying and fading. Good for use on antiques, dining tables, kitchen cabinets, wood doors, trim, and more.

    Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs that jumped up and scratched places, we also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were, and several other areas that were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magic eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let it sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand new. I'm buying a couple more so we can finish our cabinets and wood paneling. We're so glad we found this product." —Kris

    Get it from Amazon for $6.03.

    14. A pet hair roller because everything about our little fluffy friends is absolutely perfect except for the fact that their fur and hair gets on everything we own. But we still love them, right?

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my crazy cat-loving life? Sticky rollers work fine for clothes but this is the only product that has ever COMPLETELY removed all the cat hair from my bed. I have a long-haired 20 pound tabby and if you run your hands up his back a few times and fling the hair everywhere, it looks like it's snowing – he never stops shedding no matter what I do. After using the ChomChom, I can put on a black dress and roll around on my bed and not get a single hair on me. It's absolutely amazing. Everyone is getting one for Christmas, even if they don't have a pet. I don't care; it's THAT good." —Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    15. 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.

    amazon.com, 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

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $9.29.

    16. A shampoo that prevents your cool bleached hair from turning yellow, and costs way less than going back to the salon.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have bleached blonde hair that loves to go brassy. I can’t stand brassy/yellow blonde (on me). If you are looking for icy blonde to platinum, this is the shampoo for you. It completely removes all yellow from my hair. My friends are always asking me how I get this silvery blonde. Well, this is the secret. The trick is to wet your hair, put the shampoo on with as little agitation as possible (put it on like a conditioner, don’t let it lather), leave it for about five minutes (or however long it takes to wash your body and a quick shave), and then rinse. I use it about two times a week and it keeps my blonde PERFECT. I’ve tried every purple shampoo on the market (almost) and this is THE BEST. All of my blonde friends use it now." —T. Lubben

    Get it from Amazon for $11.81.

    17. 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

    Get a pack of 40 from Amazon for $8.50.

    18. A nail strengthening cream that'll have your manicurist asking YOU for recommendations.

    amazon.com

    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.

    19. Magic Erasers you just simply activate with some water and then wipe away at hard water, soap scum, grime, and more yucky messes throughout your home!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Good for use to remove hard water in bathtubs, soap scum on shower glass, grime on tile and grout, and hairspray and toothpaste residue on counters. Just add water to activate!

    Promising review: "These things are amazing! We have a rental property and the tenants trashed the house. I went to clean up and brought along these Magic Erasers. The bathroom was in really bad shape. I gagged for a portion of my scrubbing. These worked wonders. I'd say that they probably cut my cleaning time in half. Water stains, grime, whatever it was that those tenants left on the floor near the toilet...it left everything looking as brand-new as it could. Saved me a lit of time and headache. Highly recommend these little guys. They pack a punch!" —Crista Nalezny

    Get a pack of eight from Amazon for $9.88.

    20. Houseplant insect traps that will be as easy peasy as popping into the soil of your houseplants. They work like magnets to catch little buggers who dare to mess with your plant babies.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Holy cow, these suckers work! I'm so grossed out by the result, but at the same time I have a sick sense of satisfaction. I used these in my house plants that are breeding fungus gnats like crazy. I used them in conjunction with beneficial nematodes, and they definitely cut down on the number of gnats in our house. Unfortunately I added a new house plant, plus re-potted one that had outgrown its prior home, and we are wrapped up in them again. I'm buying another package of sticky traps as soon as I finish this review!" —Megan

    Get a pack of seven from Amazon for $5.19.

    21. LilyAna Naturals Retinol Cream for those in the market for a moisturizer that's gentle on sensitive skin. It helps alleviate dry skin and can also help with hormonal acne thanks to a blend of ingredients like hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, green tea, shea butter, and jojoba oil.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I wished there was a way to give this product 10 stars. Let me first say I'm a VERY picky retinol user. I usually use a high end organic product (aka: Origins) but thought I'd give this one a whirl given the reviews. I'm a tried and proven convert now. I LOVE this product. It is so luxurious, never causes burning, peeling or redness. Truthfully, I think this is best retinol cream I've ever used and that's just how it FEELS on my skin. Let's talk results. This product changed the playing field. With one use, I could tell this was different. I'm addicted now and have a hard time finishing up my other products! People at work ask me what I'm doing to my skin. They tell me how super soft, supple and radiant my skin looks. I thought it was just me that noticed but others have too. I don't want to waste any other existing product so I'm going to still use that up first before ordering more, but once it's gone, I'll be ordering this full time from now on. I'm also going to try out their other products as well." —Geri F.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    22. A power scrubbing cleaning kit you can attach to your drill and get to work in making your living space look brand freakin' new.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Comes with three different sizes and shapes of brushes. The bristles won't scratch and are good to use on tubs, sinks, baseboards, fiberglass shower enclosures, shower door tracks, and porcelain. BTW, the drill isn't included, but you can find a bunch of great ones on Amazon!

    Promising review: "I bought this on a whim because my walk-in shower is just a pain to clean. I'm 51 and I guess I've just been old school with how I clean, so I was hand scrubbing it for years. The FIRST time I used this to clean my shower, it took five minutes AND it scrubbed my shower cleaner than it has been in years. In the corners, the floor, the glass door, everything came out squeaky clean. I'm NEVER cleaning my shower by hand again." —Terry

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in six colors).

    23. Boot wipes for simply wiping away dirt and salt stains from your shoes to cut back on time you'd spend getting into your car, driving to the shoemaker, waiting DAYS for them to be ready, then having to make another trip back to the shoemaker to pick them up. No, thank you!

    amazon.com

    It works well when cleaning leather, suede, rubber, and fabric. It's also good for more than just boots: You can use it to clean jackets, bags, car seats, and more! Plus, they come individually wrapped, so you can bring them on-the-go!

    Promising review: "Worked perfectly on black suede booties. Splattered some creamy soup on them two months ago. Couldn't find anything that removed the stain. Tried these wipes as a last ditch effort. I can't believe it, they look brand new!! Stains came right out with very little effort." —AAD

    Get a pack of 10 from Amazon for $8.19.

    24. A collagen hair protein treatment that works to help reverse damaged hair from things like heat, sun, and coloring, just to name a few. Because we want you to be able to do all the cool, experimental things with your hair that your heart desires without worrying about the risks!

    Bek O' Connell / BuzzFeed

    Read a BuzzFeeder's review of this amazing hair treatment (#1)!

    Promising review: "My hair used to be really shiny. Then I had purple hair for a year, followed by blue for six months. My stylist had to bleach the beejeebers out of my hair to remove all of the funky colors. Ever since, my hair has been dry, crispy, and definitely not shiny. This stuff really makes a difference! I used it maybe 10-14 days ago, and I just redid it tonight. After shampooing, I towel-dried my hair and then put a big blob throughout my long-ish hair and clipped it up. I left it on for quite a while, just puttering around and getting chores done. Then I rinsed it and my hair feels soft and looks much shinier. I will keep using this as long as I need to (it will take a few years to grow out all the damage while maintaining length). I'm really glad that I read that article and bought the product" —SHANNON FRASER

    25. A wart removal solution for helping to gently and painlessly treat plantar warts.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Amazing product! After the pediatrician told me there was no treatment for my son, and to just let the virus work it's course, I ordered this product out of desperation. It only took one week of treatment to heal his warts. I am so thankful for this product!" —Gisela Ingle

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    26. Water bottle cleaning tablets to get your beloved drinking vessel 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

    It comes in an easy-to-use trigger spray and is ideal for cleaning bathtubs, showers, toilets, colorfast fabrics, vertical surfaces, and hard-to-reach spots. Plus, it's non-abrasive, and made with non-hydrofluoric acid based formula which is safer than other similar liquid rust stain removers.

    Promising review: "Holy wizardry! Seriously it was more work to clean the mirror over the vanity than use this product. With almost no effort, this made my dark orange, iron-water shower stall white again. I definitely suggest wearing a mask or bandana and running the ventilation fan if spraying in an enclosed area. Great product!" —Jessica B

    30. An all-natural dry shampoo that's scented with lavender oil, so we won't tell anyone it's been days upon days since you last washed your hair, if you don't. Deal?

    Promising review: "It makes my bangs and roots look fresh again. And I love that this is a powder and not a stinky aerosol spray. That also means that this lasts MUCH longer. I use it every other day when I don't wash my hair since I have very oily roots. I've been using it for almost a month and barely any is missing out of the bottle. A little goes a long way." —Rachel G.

    31. Debrox earwax removal drops so you can give your ears the clean they not only want, but truly need — think of how much clearer listening to The Greatest Showman soundtrack at your desk on repeat all day will sound now... not that I do that.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This cleaner uses micro-foam action to safely soften and remove earwax in a non-irritating manner.

    Promising review: "My right ear was totally plugged so I went to the pharmacy and the pharmacist said that this is the one doctors usually tell patients to get. I put the drops in, waited, then flushed my ear out with very warm water and OH MY GOSH... the gunk that came flowing out onto the towel blew my mind! It's amazing that I was ever able to hear at all with all that crap in my ear. This stuff works." —CD

    Promising review: "When we moved into our new place the shower doors looked like they had never been cleaned before. I tried at least 10 different products and methods to remove the hard water spots but nothing even made a dent. Bio Clean, however, was like a magic eraser! I scrubbed each door for about 10 minutes and it was incredible! I’ve never written a cleaning product review before but this one is worth every penny." —Shane B

    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 on a BuzzFeed article and it actually worked! Let it sit for about four hours and the nastiness wipes off effortlessly." —Natalie C

    34. A carpet spot remover spray to clean stains so fast and easy, Stanley Steemer is going to start plugging YOUR phone number in their catchy jingles.

    amazon.com

    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 non-toxic and should be non-irritating 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

    35. Blackhead removal strips you apply to your face once a week, let sit for about 10 minutes or so, and peel off. Then you can bask in some yucky satisfaction.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This is suitable for all skin-types and has been dermatologist-tested, is hypo-allergenic, oil-free, vegan, and cruelty-free!

    Promising review: "Want to feel disgusting about your previous self from five minutes ago and better about your health for the next couple of weeks? Wet down your schnoz and toss one of these babies on there. It will transform from malleable and comfortable to a stiff sticky pad on your face. After your five minutes of waiting is up and you are ready to see what disgusting things have been cratered in your nose, pull this baby off. Nice and slow, from one side to the other. Feel the rush of excitement as your nose has its blackheads ripped from their pores and you feel cleaner than you do after a shower. Then, flip it over and inspect it closely to see how many nasty blackheads were previously calling your nose home. Take a pic or show to a friend, preferably both. Then crumple it up and throw it away and begin the countdown until the next extraction." —r0bdawg11

    36. A soap scum and grime removal spray to target areas like your sinks, showers, and tubs and make them look as if the appliance delivery person just dropped them off.

    Promising review: "Have you ever seen the movie The Santa Clause? There's a scene where Tim Allen's character shaves away his white beard and then ~WHOOSH!~ it reappears instantaneously. That's basically my bathtub and soap scum. I've tried many products to keep it at bay, but this is the only one that has ever really worked. Not only does it have a cute dog on the packaging, it also allows me to (easily!) wipe away dastardly soap scum without having to use a lot of muscle! Which is great, because I don't exactly have a lot of muscle to use." —Mallory McInnis
