A Wet & Forget shower cleaner to tackle the gunk and stains that have been overstaying their welcome in your tub or shower. Spray it on, let it sit for a few hours (some reviewers left it on for 24 hours), and then rinse or wipe it clean! Yes, it can be THAT easy.

Before: a dirty shower floor; after: the clean shower floor


Promising review: “We cannot BEGIN to tell you what a lifesaver this is! We have two old fiberglass tubs with vinyl shower enclosures that no matter what amount of scrubbing we have done with everything from bleach to cleanser to vinegar and baking soda would NOT come clean. After I took my shower last night, I sprayed down the tub and walls. Within minutes, all the built-up water deposits and dirt and grime began to melt away in front of my eyes. I left it on overnight, and when I got up this morning, it did not look like the same tub and shower. This product is a godsend, especially for old folks like us who have difficulty getting down on our hands and knees and scrubbing anything. More importantly, it performs as advertised. This is truly an overnight sensation!” —Amazon Customer

But this product, oh my goodness; legit a miracle. It doesn’t have any type of smell. I put the paste on a cloth, clean the area, then wipe it off with a damp cloth and voilà — magic!” —May

Promising review: “This is the second one that I have purchased because I LOVE IT! I love fact that it is small and compact enough to either sit on my desk at home or fit in my desk at work. I also enjoy the fact it is dual-sided — one side to wipe the screen and the other to brush away dust, dirt, food crumbs from my keyboard. It is a great buy and worth it.

Dishwasher cleaning tablets for cleaning your (potentially smelly) dishwasher. These will do all the cleaning for you so you don’t have to get on your hands and knees and stick your head into the depths of that stainless steel beast to clean.


Promising review: “I have had a film on my dishwasher for quite some time now, I am embarrassed to say. We did not realize that it was necessary to clean the dishwasher from time to time. The buildup had been accumulating for over four years now. I tried several other cleaners to get the buildup off, but failed. I bought this product and figured it was worth a try. We added the product into the dishwasher and ran a normal cycle without dishes. When we opened it back up, it looked like new. Highly recommend this product!” —Phillip and Katherine

He was itching his face so badly he would make himself bleed. Had sores and scabs all over his face and neck. I bought these because they had good reviews and I was desperate. It changed his life! He no longer scratches AT ALL! His coat looks great and all of his sores are healed. He’s the happiest he’s been which makes me a very happy momma.

Bio-Oil to heal and soothe scars, balance uneven skin tones, and add immense hydration back to the skin wherever it’s used. TBH, my hands have been getting beat up from the mix of cold weather, hand-washing, and hand sanitizing so something tells me this would be lovely for my knuckles…

Psst! Bio-Oil contains retinol, which accelerates skin turnover but can make you more sensitive to the sun — so don’t forget your sunscreen!

Promising review: “I was skeptical of how amazing the reviews are, but this stuff is pure gold. I use it on stretch marks on my legs and in just a week they went from bright angry red to purple. I use it twice a day if I remember, and it’s amazing. I also rub it on my face after I wash my face. It has made my acne on my cheeks go WAY down, and is removing the scars. I have amazing skin now. I use this stuff EVERY day, and I’ve barely even put a dent in it. This size is amazing, and for the price — holy cow. I seriously never leave reviews, but seriously this stuff is pure magic. I tried vitamin C serum, rosehip, witch hazel, etc. and this is the only thing that has worked for me. Good luck!!” —Jessamyne Campbell

There was a fresh taste and they were clean. I wished I had found this product sooner. I did let them 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.

Promising review:If I could give this product 6 stars, I would. My husband and I use it almost every day. We have three furry dogs and six fluffy cats, which makes for A LOT of hair. We were using a lint roller before we bought our ChomChom Roller. The lint roller didn’t work very well and had to be replaced. We have had our ChomChom Roller for months and it still works just as well as it did when we first got it. We can actually invite our friends over now without worrying about all the pet hair.” —Morgan Willis

A bottle of EcoTools makeup brush shampoo for utilizing on your plethora of makeup brushes and sponges to rid them of all that baked-on old makeup. If you’re not cleaning your brushes regularly (when dirty) — they can harbor bacteria that can cause clogged pores and unwanted breakouts.

BuzzFeed editor Heather Braga swears by it. In her own words:

“After reading about how necessary it is to actually clean your makeup brushes (I know, I KNOW, I should’ve been doing this for years) I was super grossed out and motivated to order the right supplies to do the job. I’ve heard good things about EcoTools makeup brush cleansing shampoo so I figured I’d start there. The Amazon listing also suggested buying a silicone makeup brush cleaning pad to go with it so I figured… why not? Well, now I’m patting myself on the back because ordering these two items was a GAME CHANGER!

I could not believe how much residue came off my brushes in just one cleaning. You only need to use a little dab of the shampoo, so one bottle will definitely last a long time. The silicone pad made it super easy to thoroughly lather the brushes without leaving my bathroom sink in shambles. I also loved how each section was labeled with which brush should be cleaned in each area. My brushes look brand new! Don’t hesitate like I did — buy both the shampoo and the mat ASAP.”

An acne patch that’ll work to minimize pesky breakouts overnight when you pop one on before bed. These help bring the blemish to the surface and you can oftentimes see the extraction on the patch when you end up peeling it off. #satisfying

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review:I cannot say enough about these patches! They are my skin savior! I actually gave myself a facial where I pushed up all the blackheads and whiteheads from my pores, which is why there is so much puss on the patches (gross, I know), but I couldn’t believe all of that was trapped in my skin!! Woke up and removed the patches, not a single pimple! If I would’ve not put these on, guaranteed I would have woken to multiple pimples in the area. I usually break out when I try to exfoliate and extract, so I only do it when my pores start to look huge and filled (yuck). I am now a true believer, leave the ‘spot treatment’ creams and switch to these! They will pull out that white head and reduce your pimple to practically nothing overnight! And it’s safer than a cream that just brings all that gunk to the surface but doesn’t actually remove it… then when you do you’re left with an oozing pre-scar for the rest of the day! I am now a monthly subscriber. I will never use anything else. In fact, just ordered the XL acne patches to pull out more gunk on my forehead (live in AZ, constantly sweating and naturally oily). Thank you for making such a great product!!” —Jennelectric

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

A stainless-steel tongue scraper so you can kiss bad breath goodbye. This helps remove bad bacteria from the surface of your tongue with each and every scrape.


Promising review: “This product works!! High quality material, well made, easy to clean, corrosion resistant, at least in my experience. I can tell this will last a long time. And, it works!!!! Got rid of a coating on my tongue that other tongue scrapers and the tongue cleaners on toothbrushes did nothing for!! Noticed it got a lot off the first use!!! My tongue looks healthy, and my throat feels better. Once a thicker layer starts on the tongue due to post nasal drip there’s nothing else that got rid of it. It’s easy to hold, and doesn’t gag me at all. It comes with a travel case, which I love because I don’t want anything that goes in my mouth loose in a bag.” —Saffire Dragon

A bottle of Drop It in case you love wine but hate the headaches it causes. This magical solution helps remove sulfites and tannins from your glass of wine with a couple of drops.

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

Promising review:Very comfortable and incredibly absorbent compared to other brands I’ve tried. These are exactly what I needed! I don’t want to have to think about my period every moment or worry about leaking. These give me such peace of mind. I don’t use other products, just period underwear. I was so tired of everything else and even got sick of using cups. So I just wear these for my entire cycle. Heavier days I’m changing every five or so hours, but I’m talking really heavy.

Promising review: “The words won’t do it justice. I had this little bottle for over a year before I finally used it. What a mistake! I should’ve used it immediately! We have a small leak in our shower, which leads to a lot of built-up mold and mildew. I had tried everything else — commercial cleaners, even — and nothing touched it. Then I came across the little bottle I had bought over a year earlier and had pushed to the back of the cabinet, and I thought, ‘What have I got to lose?’ IT CLEANED ALL THE BLACK GUNK OUT OF MY SHOWER! I can’t say enough good about it. I will buy more and keep some on hand, at least until we can get this leak fixed. What a lifesaver.” —REMayRicks

Promising review: “This has restored my belief in Santa, the Easter bunny, the Tooth Fairy, and all magic again. We search and searched for a foot powder, or treatment, or even reasonably priced hazmat suits for when our teenage son took off his shoes. Nothing we tried worked apart from making him stay outside. Until we tried this powder. It’s a very mild scent when you sprinkle it in the shoe itself, instead of a heavy perfumed mask scent like all other foot powders, sprays, little scent balls etc. I honestly didn’t think there was anyway it could actually stop the hazardous stench that dwelled within our teen’s footwear. It was so natural-smelling, by day two of using it in said stinky teen’s boots there was nothing. It’s like this product neutralized the odor. It was sweet sweet freedom.” —Kelli Gebauer

Promising review: “My wife told me we had to really clean what appeared to be a clean tub. We moved into a house where the previous home owners were not the best cleaners. She had me get this product based on reviews. My one complaint is the label needs to be bigger. OH YUK is not enough. OH YUK YOU MIGHT BARF might be better. I think someone had a bowel movement in my bath tub plumbing and this is the only product that takes it out. It appears we have seven years of crud in the pipes. The feces-colored film that this products gets out of your pipes will make you a believer. The first use it released so much toot film that we felt like we needed to have another round of cleaning. After losing a bet I had to stick my hand in the water to drain it. Wiping off all the released film we filled the tub again. Just turning the jets the water seemed to be clear. However before I was going to ever get into this thing I wanted to do a second round of YUK treatment. Once again in full force it appeared that someone had the squirts in the tub as sludge came flowing out of the pipes. We’re going to have to run this a few times before we use the tub. Remember those pink tablets that you used to get in grade school to show you all the plaque that was on your teeth…this is like that for you tub.” —Paul Southwick

Instead of needing to clean the bowl daily, I can clean it once a week. I liked it so much, I purchased one for my sister. One of the best features of this system is that it puts the cleaner directly into the water stream instead of into the tank. You don’t have to worry about it attacking the metal parts of the tank.

Adults use this for storage, too!

Promising review: “I made this purchase because my children received 10 full-size blankets for Christmas. Living in Texas, there is not a lot of need for blankets March–October, so I needed somewhere to store them. It arrived quickly and unpackaged easily. I put the blankets in the base, and it filled about a quarter. I frantically ran around the house looking for other soft things to stuff in the bag, so I could get it to fluff up. We ended up adding all of their stuffed animals, some additional blankets, and some old towels. Honestly, I could still add more things, but for now it is just fine. It is large; my 4-year-old and 1-year-old can both comfortably lay on it, and enjoy snuggling. I would like to buy another, but I might get trapped in an endless battle of buying the bag, then buying blankets to go in the bag. It could get out of hand.” —Hannah

Promising review: “I don’t know how I ever survived without this. There are tons of ‘pet stain/odor remover’ products out there, but this by far is the absolute best. I cringed paying the $20 for it when others are between $5 and $10, but I have NO ISSUES paying now. I foster dogs, some puppies, some older, some not house broken and every room in my house is carpeted except the kitchen, which means I have lots of accidents. I spray enough to saturate if it’s a lot of urine, let it soak for 10 minutes, then wipe it up with a hand towel. Then I put a larger towel on top of it if it’s in a high traffic area until it’s completely dry. It’s taken out every stain and more importantly the odor is gone!

Promising review: “I used to drop my rings in a bit of watered down Windex, let them soak, then scrub with a soft toothbrush, rinse, and dry. That process took about 15 minutes, and even then my rings, and particularly the stones, were not flawless looking afterwards. I thought it did the job. ENTER DIAMOND DAZZLE STIK! I bought this after reading a BuzzFeed list and now I literally I sound like an infomercial talking about this thing. It’s incredible. First you dispense a little product, and you don’t even have to take your ring off!!! Then you scrub for approximately three seconds, rinse, and BAM!!!! Holy sparkles, Batman. My precious stones have never looked better. Even rings that looked pretty good before, I couldn’t believe how sparkly they were after this. Consider me a lifetime customer.” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $8.02.

It’s time to stop making everything so difficult…
