A mold and mildew remover to completely cut down on the elbow grease you’ll have to put in trying to remove the icky, black and brown spots in between the tiles in your bathroom.

Promising review: This gel has changed my life! The caulk around our shower doors has been black for years. Our water just has enough non-pathogen microbes in it to cause black build-up in the shower, toilet, etc. even with regular cleaning, and even with the mildew-resistant caulk. I thought I just had to live with it until I tried this product. The fact that it’s a gel allows the bleach to sit on the surface and stay there (unlike liquid bleach and other products), and after about five to six hours, most of the caulk was clear again! The spots that remained had turned from black to brown. I simply re-applied to those spots and after that, they were totally clear! I find it helps to cover the application area with plastic wrap to help keep it from drying out during the long application period. Then I just wipe as much off as I can with paper towels before rinsing. Covering with plastic also helps keep the bathroom from smelling too bleach-y. I highly recommend this product if your tub/shower is gross and you have given up hope!” —Biogirl

This handy cat groomer that provides your cat with endless scratching and grooming so you don’t have to. It mounts to the corners of your walls and includes a compartment for storing catnip (so they have an extra incentive to take this toy for a spin!!).

It comes with adhesive strips for damage-free mounting, but you can also choose to install it with screws.

Promising reviews: “Worked great but I needed to buy additional adhesive to get it to stick to the wall. It’s good for a cat who feels the need to rub a lot. In fact, if you have that sort of cat, make your life easier and get one of these. You can’t train them to stop. I’ve tried.” —R. Noel Burr

“My cat Gambino Bambino would let you brush him bald!!! He loves to be groomed and comes running whenever the brush comes out. Though we love to accommodate, I know he wanted more. He was constantly rubbing his cheeks and ears on the corner of our walls to get even more scratching. I finally came across this product and knew he would love it! It took a little convincing but once he got the hang of it he’s been loving it! We have one in the living room, one in the kitchen, one at the top of the stairs, and one in the guest room! He is having a great time!!! Very easy to put together and place on the wall.” —T. Mangiaracina

A shampoo massager for ensuring your sensitive scalp gets the deep clean it deserves after a long, arduous week. The silicone bristles are firm but soft enough to not hurt your head.

Promising review: “GREAT INVENTION! Anyone with overly sensitive touch sensations whether you’re a kid or adult will think this is an amazing product! It will make washing your hair so much easier. My teen has sensory processing issues and while he’s discreet about his problems, he has his challenges. During showers, he’s never been able to use his fingernails, fingertips to scrub his scalp so he’s always used combs or brushes to help shampoo and rinse out his hair. His fingertips are the most sensitive parts of his body. They are so extremely sensitive that they hurt when he’s in the shower and even afterward. This is going to make his daily life so much easier. I bought him two so it will be faster to wash and rinse out his hair.” —Bxtf

Get it from Amazon for $7.98+ (available in three colors).



These Miracle-Gro plant food spikes because it’s bad enough that you weren’t born with a green thumb, but caring for your saplings is the last thing on your mind when you come home after a long day of work.

Promising review: “I love these. They make it so much easier to keep my plants alive. Wish I had found these sooner, before killing a numerous amount of plants.” —Michelle Morrell

Get a pack of 48 spikes from Amazon for $2.24.



A jewelry cleaning pen so you don’t have to pay for all the rings in your collection to get professionally cleansed of any everyday grime every couple of months — you can just do it from the comfort of your home.

Promising review: “I have absolutely no idea how this works so well and so quickly. You wet the brush tip and turn the silver end until the blue cleaning stuff comes out onto the brush applicator. You then quickly and very easily turn your jewelry from old and cloudy looking to sparkly and full of life again. Previously I had been using a tub of cleaner, where I would need to let my ring sit in it for at least half an hour, if not more. This was so much faster and so much easier, I’ll never go back to using the tub. I really wish I took before and after photos, such a difference!” —Ashley

Get it from Amazon for $8.17.



This pumice cleaning stone because every time you scrub the heck out of those hard water stains in your toilet, they just reappear the following week. Plus, reviewers say that it works with just about 20 minutes of scrubbing.

Promising review: “I love, love this pumice stone! No, pumice stones are not my life, but this one makes my life easier. The toilet in our guest bathroom had a constant black ring from the water. I spent too much time and too much elbow grease so as not to be embarrassed. This has a great handle and a fine pumice which does the job quickly and perfectly. No muss, no fuss!” —Yvonne

Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in packs of one or two).



A pet hair broom and squeegee that seems to magically make stubborn pet hairs entangled between your carpet fibers ~disappear~ — or at least become less of a burden so you have a cleaner-looking carpet.,

Promising review: “WOW! I did not think I would LOVE this as much as I do! I thought, ‘ehh, it will be alright,’ and if it doesn’t work great on carpets or hardwood, I’ll use the squeegee side when I wash my car. The handle is made of a lightweight alloy, which makes it easy to tote around the house. But the broom — holy smokes. We have a long-haired Australian Shepard and he sheds badly. I sweep and vacuum multiple times per day. This has made life so much easier and is incredible to use on carpet and hardwood!! Now, I am not reaching for any other broom, and my vacuum thanks me for getting all this hair pulled up before vacuuming (before I was emptying the canister twice per room). LOVE IT (and didn’t think I’d love a rubber broom)!” —Alexandra Friedman

This makeup brush shampoo because — admit it — sometimes cleaning your brushes with just normal soap and water takes so damn long that you just wind up skipping the weekly washing altogether…which only leads to more buildup in your precious brushes.

Promising review: “My life got much easier with this brush shampoo. It cleans brushes fast, it is not too soapy and smells just right!” —Amy Golovan

Get it from Amazon for $4.79.



A carpet stain remover spray so you don’t have to painstakingly scrub on your hands and knees every time your cat not-so-accidentally knocks your soda or coffee off your table.

Promising review: “Spots magically disappear. My old carpet has been through the mill. Having fostered rescue dogs, I ended up with a filthy, stained carpet. I’ve spent hours on my hands and knees trying to remove the stains to no avail. Folex has done the trick and all I had to do was spray and watch the spots disappear. I can take up the area rug I was using to cover the nasty carpet and put it away once and for all. In fact, I’m getting another bottle of this just to have on hand. Thanks, Folex. You made my life so much easier.” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $13.34.



This drain snake that’ll easily slither down the bathroom and sink drains to remove any hair buildup and other obstructions that leave your sinks clogged and your life a living hell of dirty, slow-draining water.

Promising review: “This is 1000x easier than trying to do it yourself with tweezers! I don’t know how I’ve made it this far in my life not knowing this was a thing but what normally takes at least 30 minutes took just two!” —Taylor

Get a pack of three from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in two sizes).



A pack of washing machine cleaner tablets because, ironically, your washer may need a cleaning of its own when it starts accumulating those unsightly residue stains and grime.

Promising review: “I never knew how tough it would be to clean my HE washer. It is a never-ending battle. Life is a little easier now that I can toss in a tab and have it do most of the work for me.” —Maggie Dennis

Get it from Amazon for $11.98.



These conversation cards for couples that some reviewers say have strengthened their relationships by making it easier for them to approach certain topics.

Promising review: “I got this to try to get some questions answered that need to be brought up to make the relationship better. One of my friends told me about this. He had got it during the early period of his engagement. This game made it easier to talk about deeper topics and to get the conversation started without feeling weird or uncomfortable. I bought it for vacation; we had an eight-hour drive and I figured it would help pass the time. At the end of the drive I felt a lot closer to my boyfriend and I was happy that we could talk about the difficult questions. I recommend this for all serious couples!!!” —princezzredd

A compression therapy eye mask so you can wake up feeling more refreshed and ready to tackle whatever the day throws at you. It’s designed with pain-relieving properties to help subdue headaches, migraines, and eyestrain.


What are those properties, you wonder? Basically, the light-blocking massaging beads inside the mask gently conform around your eyes, and the cross-stitching prevents those beads from putting too much pressure on your delicate eyes. You can also chill the mask in the fridge before use to provide a more soothing sensation.

Promising review: This mask has made my life so much easier. I struggle with migraines every day and having a cooling mask that I don’t have to hold and can fall asleep with is perfect for me. My body runs hot, so this lasts about three hours until I have to put it back into the freezer. Highly recommend!!” —Ashley Oaks

These cable clips to keep your charging cords tangle-free and in-place so you can always find ’em when you need ’em — every second counts when your phone is on 1% and you’re on the verge of being left with the black screen of death.


Promising review: “I love these cable clips and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an easy way to organize cables! It sounds cheesy but they have made my life so much easier. I have one attached to the back of my bedside table in my bedroom and two on my desk at work. It makes my desk look neat and organized and is also extremely functional. I don’t have to worry about cords getting in the way or putting something like a coaster on top of them to keep them from falling behind furniture anymore. The price point is incredibly cheap for such a quality product and the amount that you get! I’m very happy with my purchase and would definitely buy more if I found more places in my home or office that I could use them!” —Kayla Carroll

A ring sizer so you no longer have to guess which ring size will fit you perfectly when ordering online.


Promising reviews: “Works exactly as expected. It makes buying rings off of Amazon easier.” —Lynn

This nifty little thing makes buying finger rings really easy. I have used mine several times to order both men’s and women’s rings, and every time it has been accurate. Of course, that also depends on the maker of the rings, but far as I can tell, this sizer was essential in helping.” —rwlohmeyer

This foot file to help you gently rid your heels of painful, rough, dry, calloused cracks.

Promising review: “Amazing product. Where have you been all my life? I’ve used sand planes all my life and this is so much easier. But yes, go easy the first time because you may exfoliate too much if you’re used to the sandpaper ones.” —icandyvan

Get it from Amazon for $11.45.



A compact cold brew maker so you can take your sweet time pouring yourself a nice cup in the morning instead of rushing to make it out of the house in time to stop by your local cafe before work.


Promising review: “I’m new to the cold brew world, but this made my life a lot easier. It makes enough coffee for me to have a six-oz. coffee every day for about a week. Don’t forget you don’t need that much cold coffee to begin with since it’s a pretty strong flavor so this pitcher will last you a long time in the fridge. Stayed tasty for two weeks in my fridge.” —A. Hizam

Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in two sizes).



This multi-purpose cleaner (that’s actually safe to use on brass, chrome, stainless steel, glass-ceramic, porcelain, aluminum, and more) so you can leave most of the dingy surfaces in your home sparkling clean without purchasing separate products for each.

Just don’t use it on silver, gold, granite, marble, or painted or mirrored surfaces.

Promising review: “I was using another cooktop cleaner and decided to try this one. What a huge difference!! I have a white glass top stove and it is a lot of work to keep it clean. I always had to scrub and most times use a razor blade to clean it. This was half the effort!!! And I like the smell also. It’s always great when you find a product that makes your life easier.” —LindaPBFL

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in packs of one, two, or three).



A set of packing cubes to make compressing six days’ worth of outfits into your tiny carry-on SO much easier.

The set comes with one small, one medium, one large, and one extra-large cube and a laundry bag.

Promising review: “This has been a lifesaver in my travels!! Not only is it easier to pack, but it’s also easier to store clothes inside, like having an organized closet inside your suitcase. What I usually do is I pack different types of clothing on each cube, then I bring them out to the hotel of the place we’re traveling to and have them inside the drawers, and when it’s time to pack to go back, I’d just close them and put them in my suitcase. They’re soft so I can store all of them in the smallest one and put them in my closet.” —Monica Hine

Get a set of four from Amazon for $19.99 (available in 13 colors).



This ~wildly popular~ purple shampoo because it’ll prevent you from having to go back to the salon every couple of weeks to tone the brassiness out of blonde highlights.

Promising review: “FIVE STARTS ALL AROUND!!! I’m absolutely impressed. 😩 I wanna cry! My color will probably fade as always, but it’s so much easier using this instead of going through the entire toning process! I’ve been a blonde for four years and burned inches on inches of hair and I’m still learning as I am NO professional. But I am absolutely astonished by how amazing this stuff is. It’s definitely top of the line and will be used from now on. 💯” —Miya

A pack of reusable grocery bags that are actually much stronger than they look and will make it easier for you to ferry your purchases back home without forcing you to carry a dozen plastic bags at once.,

Promising review: “I purchased these bags because I have quite a walk from my garage to my house. These bags are AMAZING! I stuff them full and they never tear. I also get water by the gallon and these bags hold them. They make my life easier!! Try these bags, you will love them!” —MB

Get a set of five bags from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in six color sets). They even make a version of the bags with ~beautiful~ prints for $18.55.



This RFID-blocking travel wallet so you can organize all your travel docs, identification, credit cards, and cash, then whip out that passport at security check without skipping a beat.

This baby has seven credit card slots, one ID card slot, one SIM slot, a boarding pass pocket, a pen holder, a key ring, one passport holder that fits up to two passports, a zipper pocket for money and coins, aaaaand a cellphone pouch.

Promising review: “This is a really cute (lots of compliments) and practical wallet. It has made it so much easier to travel because I can just hold it in my hand as I go through airport security. Love the RFID-blocking feature as that is so critical today especially with travel to large cities. I find it a little bulky with my phone in it but that’s my preference. Works great with everything else including passport and travel tickets, etc.” —GA
