A mildew-resistant antimicrobial shower curtain liner to keep all the funk and gunk away from your bathroom.
This liner has five magnets at the bottom to hold it in place in your shower, 12 rust-proof metal grommets, and a reinforced header. It’s designed to be heavy-duty enough for use as a liner or as a single curtain.
Five-star reviews: 12,680+
Promising review: “Initially, I was not ecstatic when I opened the box. I guess I was expecting something more but it’s just a clear shower curtain, right? What’s so OMGIMSOEXCITED about a clear shower curtain? So, I hung it up and initially was going to get a decorative shower curtain for the outside of my tub and keep this on the inside. Well, let me tell you, I warmed up to this clear shower curtain lots! I actually love it so much that I am keeping it like this and not getting a decorative one! The clear shower curtain makes your bathroom look and feel bigger, and it’s great showering while being able to see out of the tub… It doesn’t get in my way because of the curve of the railing and it doesn’t hold or gather soap scum or any stains around the edges like I have seen some do. It is truly transparent and pretty! I am happy with the purchase and of course, at a great price.” — Maria
Price: $9.99 (available in four styles and two sizes)
Laundry stain remover that reviewers swear will work literal magic on your (or your kids’) dirtiest, nastiest clothes.
Five-star reviews: 2,620+
Promising review: “I’m always skeptical of these kinds of products but I went ahead and decided to give this stain remover a chance because I have clothes that have small grease spots from cooking that I never notice until after I’ve already washed them. I used this on those items (which have already gone through the dryer several times) as well as my trusty old ‘period panties’ that hide in the back of my drawer. I sprayed it on the stains pretty generously, let it sit for a few hours, and then washed everything as I usually do. When I took everything out of the dryer, the stains were gone! I have never seen such results from anything I’ve used before, including all of the big-name stain removers that claim to be the best. The next test is to try it out on my dishrags that I’ve been using for the last few months that all have stains I can’t seem to wash out. This product will remain a staple in my laundry room forever!” — Kerry
Garbage disposal packets to clean out the gunk and remove the odor that would otherwise be impossible to reach. This way, the rest of your household can’t walk around knowing they smell something putrid down there and throw their hands up on the matter. Cleaning packets to the rescue!
Five-star reviews: 1,230+
BTW, it’s lemon-scented and the packets are biodegradable so they won’t screw up the environment once they go down your drain and out into the sewage.
Promising review: “We moved into a townhouse that had a garbage disposal in the kitchen. I never had one growing up and didn’t think too much about it until the funky smell started. I researched ways to clean it and came across these. I decided to order a four-pack and try them. THEY ARE LIFE-CHANGING. Just run some water, toss the packet in, and turn on the disposal. The little packet does all the hard work for you. I order a new set as soon as we start to run low.” — Lucas Broshears
Price: $5.99+ (available in multiple quantities)
Extra-strength shoe deodorizing spray that’ll kick the funk outta your smelly shoes so you actually feel comfy sticking your feet in them again.
Five-star reviews: 3,020+
The spray has a lemon eucalyptus scent created with natural essential oils so it shouldn’t mess with allergies! This spray is also made by a family-owned business in the USA.
Promising review: “I’m honestly beyond impressed with this spray! Not only does it eliminate the shoe odor after a day of work or a long night out, but it also smells fantastic. All it takes is a couple of sprays in each shoe and then my entire closet smells of freshness for almost two whole days! I will definitely buy again and not only for the shoes!”— Anomaly
A door draft-stopper so you can keep the heat or the cool air in your home instead of letting it seep out. It’s also made of waterproof silicone and is meant to prevent light amounts of water from coming in too!
Reviewers also shared that it also helped keep bugs out and was very easy to install.
Five-star reviews: 1,870+
Promising review: “I bought it because there was a HUGE gap underneath the door leading into my house from the garage. Anytime I walked by it, I could feel a ton of cold air coming through… It comes longer than the average door so measure twice and cut once. Then, peel the adhesive off and stick on the door. I’m pretty sure a monkey could do it and actually do a decent job. I definitely feel less cold air which also means less hot air when it hits 110 degrees in August. In conclusion, if you have a gap under your door, then buy this thing. It’ll pay for itself with the heater/AC kicking on less often.” — Username taken
Price: $9.99 (available in four colors including gray and brown)

It’ll also come with a small, embroidered pillow to sit it on and a mallet to help you make the sound. You’ll be happy to know that several reviewers noted how helpful the seller was. ALSO, lots of reviewers who had never used a singing bowl before noted how easy this was to make sound with.
Five-star reviews: 2,090+
Promising review: “This singing bowl is a nice start and a nice end to my yoga practice and meditation. I have been practicing yoga for about eight years but become much more dedicated in the last five years. I had admired my yoga instructor’s singing bowl and had mentioned it to my husband. He bought me this one as one of my presents for my birthday. I love it! It’s very well-made and beautiful in sound and sight!”

Promising review: “This product is great. It arrived on time, was neatly packaged, and provided some directions for newbies. The sage/lavender was tightly bound so no particles fell prior to or during the burning process. Most importantly, I believe I have no more negative energy in my new home. I intend to purchase a few more for people I know.” — Suzanne

Travel-friendly teeth whitening pens that reviewers say will give you pearly whites with consistent usage.
The pens are meant to help remove surface stains caused by stuff like coffee, tea, wine, smoking, soda, and more.

The brand also confirms that your teeth should get four to eight shades lighter with consistent usage. Each pen has about 20 uses.
Five-star reviews: 2,520+
Promising review: “This is my second time purchasing this product and I love it! It doesn’t leave your teeth feeling sensitive and you can apply it whenever/wherever! It’s been about four weeks that I’ve been using this product and I am definitely seeing results! My teeth before were looking tan and I needed to whiten them up. With the strips, my teeth hurt the next day; that never happens with this product! I’m in a profession where my skin and teeth are constantly looked at so I had to get rid of the tan teeth and this did it faster than expected and without any side effects. I love this product and I’m definitely a customer for life! ❤️ UPDATE: This is my third time buying this product and it works great and quicker than other strips or whiteners and it doesn’t give you the sensitive gums.” — Stephanie B.
Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara so you can get bold and beautiful lashes whenever you want — no falsies involved.
Five-star reviews: 5,690+
Promising review: “After using Lights, Camera, Lashes by Tarte Cosmetics for the past year, I got tired of breaking the bank over mascara. My sister suggested Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. It provides dramatic length and great volume. I can honestly say I can’t stop looking at my eyelashes in the mirror every single day because of how awesome they look. Also, it is very long-wearing. I go from an eight-hour workday right to the gym and sweat like crazy and this stuff doesn’t budge! I love it!!” — Carrie E. Miller
Trader Joe’s sesame seasoning blend that’ll turn up the taste of everything from avocado toast to bagels to buttery popcorn — without you having to wait in those take-up-your-whole-day lines at the actual store.
The blend includes sesame seeds, sea salt flakes, dried minced garlic, dried minced onion, black sesame seeds, and poppy seeds.
Five-star reviews: 1,590+
Promising review: “This seasoning blend is just stupidly delicious. My favorite use so far was for making homemade gluten-free bagels. I used the popular “two-ingredient bagels” Weight Watchers recipe with just Greek yogurt and Pamela’s Pancake Mix, topped with an egg wash and this deliciousness. They. Were. AMAZING. I thought I made enough for a few days but my family ate them all in 24 hours…The season was really fabulous sprinkled on scrambled eggs, too. My nearest Trader Joe’s is over an hour away, so I am happy to be able to order this here.” — Callie
Price: $6.95 (available with free shipping)

Sam Wieder‘s glowing Everything But The Bagel seasoning blend review.
The novel by Celeste Ng that’ll soon be a Hulu series, but could also be the next thing you cozy up to and get lost in! The book is about two families that are brought together by their children Little Fires Everywhere and it’s a New York Times bestseller.
By the way, the Hulu series will star powerhouse actresses Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington.
Five-star reviews: 3,100+
Promising review: “I gave this book five stars because of how it intertwined all the lives of the characters and how it was so deep and light at exactly the right moments. I loved how even the characters that you felt were doing wrong per se still had ways of making you feel for them and making you understand their point of view. I didn’t like how I wanted more (LOL). I wanted everyone to find out the truth and for that to unfold as well but the ending leaves a lot for the imagination. I would love love love a second part to this book. Anyone can read and enjoy it. It’s definitely good for a mother and daughter, book club, and for women in general — especially if you have children or want them one day. It just opens up your mind to maybe the type of parent you would want to be and need to be.” — Amber B.

An argan oil heat protectant so you can put heat to your hair and get the sleek style you want *without* worrying about damage.
Five-star reviews: 3,300+
The spray will protect hair from up to 450 degrees of heat. It’s also sulfate-, phosphate, and paraben-free. Plus, it’s color-safe.
Promising review: “I’ve tried a lot of heat protectors and straighteners but this is the best one yet. It doesn’t make my hair difficult to brush or sticky like many of them. My hair is so soft and conditioned and it straightened very easily. I don’t even think it’s meant to be a straightening product but when you have thick curly hair, it still makes the process sooo much easier. I love the fine mist, too. I washed and sprayed my hair, then went to bed, and in the morning I finished blow-drying (if you have curls you know it still isn’t dry overnight, lol) and flat-ironed. Beautiful results! I’ll be reordering for sure.” — Luckydb16 Price: $14.89

Five-star reviews: 5,580+
Promising review: “OK… So I have to do a little review on this product BECAUSE I have had a stopped-up kitchen sink and have LITERALLY tried EVERYTHING down to the industrial products with NO luck. I decided to go on Amazon and read a few reviews. This is the one I decided to go with. I only used one chamber, let it sit for an hour, and then used boiling water. My sink is NO LONGER stopped up!!! I saved a plumber bill and this was $11.97. HUGE win for this woman!!” — Tabpeach

The smaller one is double-ended with a wiper blade so you can clean out the tiniest cracks near your sink and elsewhere.
Five-star reviews: 2,180+
Promising review: “The bigger brush stayed together without fraying for my entire laundry room. I could do many more rooms with this brush- unlike a toothbrush! Buy them!” — Skylar
A cool-looking knife set that will definitely look like it somehow belongs on the set of a new Blade movie while it’s sitting on your counter. The set includes that fun, clear stand and a bonus knife sharpener.
Five-star reviews: 3,900+
Promising reviews: “This is one good-looking knife set and the knives work very well. The thin design of the holder doesn’t take up a lot of space yet keeps your knives very handy. If you’re short on counter space but don’t want to rummage through a drawer to find a knife, then this set is perfect. I would definitely buy this product again!” — Cheryl

A peeling and brightening serum that clears up hyperpigmentation and evens out the skin tone. It contains hydroquinone (for brightening dark spots), salicylic acid (for penetrating the skin and drying up breakouts), vitamin C (also a brightening agent), and a host of other helpful ingredients.
🗣️🗣️🗣️: Anything you put on your skin that’s meant to peel it is probably something you should consult with your dermatologist about first. You also need to be using sunscreen with an adequate SPF to keep your skin safe while it’s peeling away layers of dead skin. Several reviewers also noted that it does sting but it delivers dramatic results they’re pleased with. All the more reason to check it with a real doctor before dunking it on your face. ALSO, the brand recommends that if you use this product consistently for 60 days, then you need to take a break from it for 30 days. Everything in moderation and cheers to happy skin!
Five-star reviews: 3,450+
Promising review: “I WAS EXTREMELY HESITANT at first before ordering this product and considering using it on my skin. I don’t typically have sensitive skin but you honestly never know… BUT, this product has been doing miracles for my skin!! I’m so happy about the progress. I watched all the YouTube videos I could find, read thorough reviews, and can truly say I’m happy and more confident with the outcome so far. I was diagnosed with PCOS last year and severe hyperpigmentation has been one of the side effects. I was considering laser hair removal but this has been working. I started using this product 1/16/20… I have been using it twice a day but I alternate depending on my mood and if I have time in the morning… I do exfoliate every day and night. Going to keep using it to see if the scars lighten any further and my skin peels a little bit more bringing in the new skin!” — V. Forest
Pan scrapers so you can clean up after cooking with way less muscle work. The scrapers have four differently-shaped edges so you can remove the gunk from any size pan.
Five-star reviews: 2,800+
Promising review: “These are the best little scrapers! I’ve messed up my iron skillets so many times before buying these! They’re super easy to use, not pricey, and they do the job! It was even easy on my hands since it took me maybe two minutes to scrape everything, rinse, and dry. I had to scrape shepherd’s pie (meat, cheese, gravy, and potatoes left overnight) off the pan. And if you’ve ever left gravy in something overnight, then you know how hard that can be to get off. But not with these bad boys!! Save yourself some time and save your pans! Your skillets will thank you!” — Tyler
Price: $2.99 (available in a two-pack)

Five-star reviews: 3,240+
Promising review: “I almost never write reviews but I have to this time! This product is amazing — basically a miracle! I used these on three giant cystic acne spots and they nearly disappeared over the course of two days!!! I used them overnight and for a few hours during the day for two days and BAM! The gnarliest pimples I’ve ever had are magically and dramatically almost gone!” — Nikki Berry
Price: $8.50 (40 patches in a pack)
Cleansing gel that’ll conform like putty to all the smaller, interestingly-shaped places you need to remove dust from like your keyboard, car vents, A/C vents and more.
Five-star reviews: 1,100+
The gel is non-sticky and lemon-scented. It’s also biodegradable so when you’re ready to toss it, you won’t be hurting Mother Earth at all. 🌎
Promising review: “I was skeptical at first. I was afraid my keyboard would be all gummed up with yellow slime! The opposite happened. The gel cleaned it as good as new. It got all those dog hairs between the keys and there’s no smell lingering on the keyboard or my hands. There’s no sign I even used it except a clean keyboard. It’s also kind of fun to play with. Squeeze it between your fingers! LOL. My next task for it will be those dust return air vents on our heating system and my dusty window blinds. This stuff works!” — Billy
A portable door lock that’ll give you extra security whenever you’re sleeping anywhere that isn’t your personal abode. It’ll be super helpful for anyone who frequents Airbnbs and sleeps better knowing things are extra secure.
Five-star reviews: 1,100+
Promising review: “I am so happy I discovered this product on Amazon. I live in a rented room where there is no lock and I didn’t want to request the owner to drill the lock for me. So, this product has been a savior for me. I can finally sleep in peace without having to worry about anyone trying to open the door when I am inside the room. It is super simple to use and also comes with a good manual. It also came with a small red pouch so I am definitely planning to carry it during my travels and use it at hotels or motels. I am very happy with this purchase.” — Anzy
An air purifier to pull the dust, smoke, pollen, mold, and odors out of your environment so you can inhale and exhale more comfortably. You’ll even be able to pull the filter out to see just how much mess it’s sucked out of the air in your area.
Five-star reviews: 2,120+
Promising review: “I was always skeptical of ‘air purifiers’ and just how effective they could possibly be. As I get older.. my allergies and asthma have been getting progressively worse.. so it came to the point of… ‘Ok, let’s try it out.’ Did a lot of research and besides price… the other important thing was maintenance expenses.. as in new filters, etc. So when I found this model.. I jumped at it.. great price.. permanent filter.. and says it’s supposed to help me. Well, folks, it did. And it does. So well that I bought two more to place in all the other rooms in the house where I hang… and my allergies have been significantly reduced and, dare I say, eliminated?” — Steven
Price: $59.99 (available in two colors and in a style specifically for pet odor eliminating)
