A teeth-whitening pen because it’s a heck of a lot quicker (and tastes a lot better) than those irritating whitening strips that slip and slide all over your teeth. You can use each pen ~20 times and should expect your teeth to lighten four to eight shades.


Promising review: “This is the best product with very quick results. I am super surprised that an affordable item works this well. I used this for three days and it has made a difference. I usually am sensitive to teeth whitening but this one did not bother me at all. This is definitely worth 6 stars!!” —angela

A Revlon hot air brush to help you go from wet, tangled, frizzy hair to a shiny, salon-worthy blowout in minutes. FYI this is the hot air brush that all the influencers you follow on IG are raving about because it is just 👏 that 👏 good 👏.

amazon.com, amazon.com

The brush has special vents that allow air to flow so hair dries faster. Plus, it’s quicker than using a dryer and then a flat iron or curling iron, which equals less heat damage.

Promising review: “Amazing product. I wish I found this 20 years ago!! I have naturally curly hair and enjoy a nice blowout without having that pin straight ‘burnt’ flat iron look. This product helped me achieve the blowout look in about five minutes (yes five!). When it comes to hair, I’m a super novice and this is by far the easiest most effective (inexpensive) blow out. I would give this more than fve stars if I could. Where has it been all my life?!?!” —Sara Kovach

A carpet cleaner for getting rid of that questionable stain on your white carpet that’s bested every other carpet cleaner you’ve ever tried — well, every carpet cleaner but this one.


Promising review: “I’m absolutely speechless. If I could give 10 stars, I would. I’m baffled as to how this stuff works. I feel like I’m in an infomercial demo where they spill red wine on a white carpet and then after spraying the ‘magic carpet cleaner’ the stain vanishes. Unlike infomercial products that don’t actually do anything when you try it at home, this stuff completely makes stains vanish before your eyes. Carpet cleaning products certainly don’t excite me normally, but after watching how the spaghetti sauce that I dripped on the light beige carpet completely disappeared, I’ve been telling everybody I know to buy some. You don’t even have to wipe it; you just spray it on and the stain is gone!” —Scott G

Get it from Amazon for $12.12.


A pack of foaming garbage disposal cleaners that’ll clean your sink from the inside out. You definitely shouldn’t be sticking your hand down the garbage disposal…so let this lil’ helper do the dirty and dangerous work.


Promising review:10 stars! Wonderful product. Absolutely love and will continue to reorder. Does a great job cleaning out and freshening the disposer.” —Alts

A mini inflatable pool so you can make your summery dreams of relaxing in a pool with a glass of sweet tea a reality — even if you have a small backyard.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “On 85-degree hot and sunny days, you just need to have a pool. This inflatable pool is heavy duty. Great quality, very safe, and we love that the walls are high enough where our 1-year-old bull dozer can not get out (unlike the other pirate kiddy pool we have that she would just climb right out of it a million times, which was beyond exhausting). The pool honestly is a 10-star pool. Worth every penny. We dump the water after every use, and clean it with soap and a soft car brush. Just easy unlike the maintenance of a real pool. You will not regret getting this. Just sit in relax in the water on a beautiful sunny day. What more can you ask for?” —Ashley Vallejo

Get it from Amazon for $89.99.


And speaking of pools, a stunning ruffle V-neck one-piece if you’re still on the hunt for this season’s swimsuit. I’ll be taking all meetings poolside in this bathing suit. Sorry not sorry!

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “This swimsuit is sexy, comfortable, and affordable. Love it. Would give it 10 stars. Bought it in red and olive.” —Holly

Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 18 colors; this is a super cute plus-size option as well).


An odor-eliminating spray because a few spritzes on the stain your pet’s “present” left behind will save you from smelling pee every time you walk into the living room. Each spray releases bacteria that feeds on the ammonia left behind after your pet’s accidents, eliminating the urine completely and deterring your pet from peeing in the same spot again.


Promising review: “Very hard to find ANY fault in this amazing product. It’s easy to use and smells very fresh! I have a rug under our dining table where our Chow likes to tinkle pretty regularly. I was cleaning with a steam carpet cleaner at least once a week — and avoiding the rug altogether most of the time — but the smell never went away and neither did our Chow, even after using Arm & Hammer carpet deodorizer! But a few sprays of Rocco & Roxie Stain & Odor Eliminator and POOF! Smell is ALL GONE and Chow has lost interest. I give this product FIVE STARS but it honestly deserves more than that! Will buy again for certain!” —ICH

A blackhead remover vacuum with a powerful head to suction up blackheads, whiteheads, grease, and leftover makeup. It comes with four different attachments for all your skincare needs, as well as five suction levels so you can clear up your skin without painful blackhead-removing strips.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review:If I could give it six stars I would. I was actually expecting to be a little disappointed because it was pretty cheap and I’ve yet to find one that works. But this one is absolutely perfect! I’d buy it over and over! Highly highly recommended!” —Deanna Brannon

Get it from Amazon for $25.59 (available in seven colors).


A plant-based stainless steel cleaner and polish for anyone whose family doesn’t seem to understand that there are handles (handles, people!) and unnecessarily smudge the fridge with their fingerprints.


Promising review: “This is hands-down the only product that has ever perfectly cleaned my stainless steel appliances. It deserves 10 stars because nothing else comes close to removing streaks and toddler finger prints as easily and completely as this. I have tried for years to get my appliances to look like new. Everyone who has stainless should own this.” —Danielle

A cruelty free vitamin C serum that’ll give your skin a much-needed pick-me-up. Just listen to the 44,000+ people who gave it a 5-star review: this stuff brightens, softens, and dramatically fades hyperpigmentation.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I never thought that I would find a serum that didn’t just irritate my skin. I’ve spent WAY more money on fancy serums just to have them purge my skin and leave me red and angry-skinned. This stuff is amazing. It isn’t sticky or heavy. I used it every day, and it’s still lasting me forever. I’m in love. I’d give it 10 stars if I could.” —Makayla Fryman

Get it from Amazon for $19.99.


A grooming rake so you can loosen fur and lighten your dog’s undercoat and prevent future mats. This brush is specifically designed for pooches with thick, dense fur or double coats.


Promising review:I wish I could give this thing seven stars, but five will have to do. I was able to pull entire sheets of undercoat out of our husky without disturbing the topcoat. I’ve never had anything work so well. It’s even easier to keep the fur pile together. The fur stays clumped instead of getting spread out and floating around like with the blade style Furminator. This thing really digs the loose stuff out so much faster and easier. Check the photo to see what 20 minutes will get you.” —pvfjr

A heavy-duty grout cleaner if you want to give your floors a jaw-dropping makeover à la Anne Hathaway in The Princess Diaries. The dirt will just disappear. IDK what else to tell you.


Promising review: “I would give this product 10 stars if I could. My grout was disgusting and I thought I would never be able to get it truly clean. This product really works! It was fast and easy to use.” —Matt Staggs

Get it from Amazon for $19.95.


A scalp massager because a relaxing scalp massage is great for getting that blood flowing to your head while simultaneously breaking down buildup (hello hairspray and dry shampoo) that’s making your hair oily and difficult to style.


Promising review: “A must-try!!!. I wish I’d found this sooner. Feels super good to the scalp. I’d give this more than five stars if I could.” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $6.78+ (available in three colors).


A black car scratch remover to get rid of any reminders of the time you accidentally swiped the mailbox when you pulled into the driveway. It’s also a much cheaper alternative to driving to the auto shop.


Promising review: “The scratch on my Escalade was deep. I scratched it against brick while moving into the garage. I didn’t think this would work as well as it clearly did. It was quick and easy, and on small surface scratches it works almost instantly. I’d give this stuff 10 stars if I could.” —Imran Naqvi

An air purifier for anyone who’s felt personally victimized by seasonal allergies. This bad boy removes dander, mold, dust, and pollen in the air to help you breathe better.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review:I’d give this 10 stars if I could. Cleared up my dust mite allergies in just a few days.” —Joe

Would give 10 stars! This purifier is so effective for smells. I have three cats so I have a cat room that has their two litter boxes and food. The room used to be very stinky even though I scoop every day of my life. I put this in here and I was so impressed that I got a second one for the kitchen because I hate food smells the next day or even hours.” —Kay

Get it from Amazon for $80.90+ (also available in white).


A box of cleaning K-Cups that’ll get rid of residue in your machine and prevent flavors from transferring. Or have fun descaling it multiple times. Your choice!

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review:10 stars!! I haven’t cleaned my Keurig in years. Yes it’s nasty but I guess I never really thought about it. The water was BLACK in the beginning; now it is CLEAR! I can’t wait to clean my Keurig every week (it’s too easy not to do it) plus enjoy tomorrow’s cup of joe 🙂 Amazing product. Easy to use. No smell. I already bought two more boxes 👍” —Amazon Customer

A leather cleaning brush so you can stop crying over your favorite suede booties that were destroyed by rain and mud. This lil’ guy can be used four different ways to clean scuff marks, water spots, and invisible dust.


Promising review: “This little gadget is a must-have!!! Watch your scuffs, stains be erased off your suede. This thing is amazing. Seriously would give 10 stars if I could!” —Christine M

Get it from Amazon for $6.99.


A bottle of Drop It — a sulfite and tannin remover — if you’re just tryna enjoy an after-work wine without the post-sauvignon blanc headache.

Emma Lord / BuzzFeed

One bottle can help keep you headache-free for up to 55 glasses depending on how many drops you use.

Promising review: “I drank wine one night and did not use the drops. WOW, my IBS hit me like a knife! This proves that they really do work. I wish I had an option to give this product 10 stars!!!! I have had IBS for several years and last fall my IBS went into overdrive, after trying to figure out what was possibly causing it I realized that I have been drinking more red wine then usual. I researched it and sulfates in wine are known to irritate people with IBS. I put five drops in a glass of wine and stir it with a spoon; it does not change the taste of the wine. My youngest daughter also has IBS. I had her try it and it also cured her sulfate issues. I thought that I would have to give up wine, but no more!!!” —Keywest

A denture cleaner because, despite brushing your retainer each night, it’s somehow coated in some weird white film. These fizzing tablets will blast away odor-causing bacteria, discoloration, and plaque from your Invisalign, retainers, dentures, night guards, and more.


Promising review: “I really loved this product. I am currently waiting for a new Invisalign set. My old Invisalign needed to be cleaned. I read the reviews and decided to purchase. OMG it worked! There was a fresh taste and they were clean. I wished I had found this product sooner. I did let the soak overnight only because I had been wearing them for the last four months. Nothing happened to Invisalign; there was no weakness or anything. Just very clean and fresh. If I could have given the product 10 stars I would have.” —Lisa R.

A broom for pet hair to loosen the fur trapped in your carpet. It works just as well on wood and linoleum, with the rubber head working as a magnet to attract stray hairs. There’s also a built-in squeegee for wiping up liquids or for cleaning glass. Plus, the handle extends from 36 to 60 inches so it can reach practically any mess.

amazon.com, amazon.com

My colleague Emma Lord, a self-professed shedder, also swears by this broom! Check out our full FURemover Broom review (#1) for more deets.

Promising review:I’d rate it a 100 out of 5 stars if I could! This broom is amazing!!! We have three dogs with long hair. I vacuum all the time and there’s still this layer of hair on the carpet that I can’t get rid of and tumbleweeds of dog hair and dog hair along the base boards! Every other time I vacuum I have to clean the underside of the vacuum because the hair tangled in the bristles. We were looking into buying a $300 vacuum specifically for pet hair because we just couldn’t stand it anymore. But I tried this broom and voila — all the dog hair is gone! It looks like new carpet! I’m obsessed!! Do yourself a favor and buy this” —Hayden Wood

A foot file for getting your heels in sandal-ready condition. Rub gently and watch the dead skin and calluses fall like shredded cheese to reveal baby soft heels.


Promising review: “I’m not one to talk about my feet. I’ve had circulation problems for years that are just now resolving and that has lead to deep callouses on the heel of both feet. I bought this on a whim as I have tried other products in the past with no luck. Twenty minutes later I’m touching baby smooth skin where there used to be deep cracks and rough broken skin. This thing is a miracle worker and if I could rate it 10 stars I would.” —Gully176

An electrical outlet cover with a power strip that’ll hide cluttered cords stat. It’s also pretty great if you want to push your furniture right up against the wall but can’t because your phone charger adapter is in the way.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I have an outlet outlet above our mantel that’s meant for a wall-mounted TV. We have a large painting covering it. We wanted to use the plug to power two Wi-Fi speakers on the long mantle. The thinness of the plug is perfect behind the painting. The power strip is hidden by a mantle clock. So, we have our two speakers to either side and no visible wires. This product may not work for every application, but for us, it’s 10 stars.” —Amazon since ’97

A memory foam seat cushion with cooling gel so you can answer your coworkers’ dumb questions without pain — or at least your butt won’t hurt. (That Susan-induced headache though…you might need an Advil for that.) It relieves pressure on your tailbone, and reviewers say it also helps ease lower back pain.


Promising review: “After having major surgery last year, I noticed minor but annoying hip and lower back pain. As soon as the cushion was delivered, I tried it out and ahhh, the back adjusted (popped a little), hip felt no pressure, and more aligned and dull lingering headache went away. Wow! Why didn’t I seek out a product like this earlier? But this cushion needs 10 stars because the quality is there, no doubt. I WILL be buying more of these for other sitting areas and gifts for friends and family!” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $32.95.


A streak-free anti-fog spray if you need help keeping your glasses clear while you’re wearing your mask. No more having to remove and wipe down your foggy spectacles every 10 minutes! It’s also great for spritzing on your mirrors, goggles, and even your windshield.


Promising review: “I purchased this because I need something to keep my glasses clear and this stuff really works. I have shown it to multiple healthcare coworkers and allowed them to try it. In fact, we call it the golden stuff. Because of COVID, people who normally wear contacts are not recommended to wear them to keep us from touching our faces. So this really helps to keep us from having to clear our glasses and it works a heck of a lot better than shaving cream. So if you want clear glasses instead of fogged glass…buy this stuff. It really really works. I would give it more that 5 stars if I could and who knows…. it may just save you life from not touching your face from COVID.” —Charlene Subrick

Get it from Amazon for $10.55.


A pair of double buckle sandals because they’ll fool everyone into thinking you shelled out the big bucks for the real version. Reviewers say the padded and contoured footbed will mold to your feet so every step is pain-free. Plus, they’re waterproof so you can wear them to the beach or lake without worrying that the they’ll get ruined.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review:If I could give these more stars I would! They are goofy looking but they are sooooo comfortable. Great support. I hate going shoeless in the house because my feet hurt at the end of the day. Wear these and no more foot pain! They are my Birken-crocs!” —Amazon Customer

Get them from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes 6–10 and 48 colors and styles).


A stainless-steel tongue scraper to banish bad bacteria and improve stinky breath.


Promising review: “I brushed my teeth first (as recommended), and then scraped my tongue efficiently without any pain. I went down my tongue about three times and the result was a pinker(/cuter) tongue and a fresher feeling in my mouth. I love this product! All the stars! I can’t want to see the long-term impact on the looks and health of my tongue. Cheers to oral health!” —Tara
