Promising review: "I don't write many reviews and I was totally skeptical but OMG I'm in love! I've purchased so many products to try to clean the marks in my sink and nothing worked. I used it on my stovetop and was amazed how well it cleaned it that I moved on to my sink." —Christina

These come with a wireless charging case that provides up to 45 hours of charge (with the earbuds able to play for 10 hours with each full charge).
Promising review: "Five stars all the way around! I am loving everything about these earbuds! One of the best features about these is NO CORDS!! I have really long, thick hair and my previous Bluetooth earbuds had the wire connecting them and it was constantly getting in the way or tangled in my hair. They look nice, the case is great, they are very comfortable to wear, and the sound quality is fantastic. I can really hear the bass! I like that I can use the earbuds separately as I wear them at work for background music and get a full day out of the batteries by swapping them. I have used them for a couple of calls and the person on the other end had no issues hearing me or with background noise so that's a definite win! The noise cancellation is great, maybe too good; even if I pause my music when talking to someone, I still sometimes have to take the bud out to be able to hear them properly but not a big deal. It's great to drown everyone else out at the gym. My boyfriend was super impressed with them as well when I let him listen. He guessed they were double the price. I am very happy with this purchase!" —Elizabeth Good

Promising review: "This is my favorite, no-brainer toner at the moment. It doesn't have a scent and feels instantly soothing, refreshing, and has really helped even out my skin tone/texture! I have pretty sensitive skin so finding a good toner I can use everyday like this one is a game-changer. I use this toner with just my fingers/palm of my hands directly, or when I want a slightly deeper clean I will put it on a cotton pad and smooth over my face." —tiffany

Promising review: "I've had it in my possession for like two hours and I've cleaned everything. The couch, the blinds, the cat tree pad, the chair; I'm obsessed. I feel like this thing should win an award for being so awesome. I feel like it should be in raffle baskets and giveaways and silent auctions for every event that highlights 'things cat people need.' It's better than those sticky rollers, it's better than the one-directional velvet wand thing that I always use the wrong way. It's the best." —Meowser

Promising review: “I have well water. Something in my well water reacts with copper plumbing and turns my shower tiles blue. Since my bathroom color scheme isn't on the blue spectrum, this is problematic. The well water also causes the shower glass to film up quickly. I've tried dozens and dozens of cleaners and scrubbed till my arms ached trying to get ahead of the blue and scumminess. My ambition in life is NOT to be a full time bathroom scrubber! I saw this stuff on a professional house cleaner's TikTok (sorry, don't remember which one) and thought 'what the heck, might as well give it a try.' Oh my goodness, the first day after my shower I sprayed this stuff all over and walked away. The next morning there was a NOTICEABLE reduction in the blue and the glass looked clearer too. Day two, sprayed again and walked away. The next morning the blue was gone except for a few spots on the floor tile and the glass looked amazing. Day three I sprayed the remaining spots and the next morning the shower practically looked new. NO SCRUBBING AT ALL!!!! This is my new favorite shower cleaner. The ONLY con I have is that it makes me sneeze while I'm spraying from inside the shower, but I can live with that.” —L. J. Petillo

Promising review: "These tablets really do work. My husband has a huge Stanley Thermos that he uses daily for coffee. I have tried everything I could think of to clean that thing nothing worked. These tablets made it look brand new on the inside." —middletonbrat

Promising review: "I have type 4 hair and this makes it soooooo soft. Easy and quick to use. It really helps when working through knots and stuff. Smells good and has a good price. Literally just ordered my third bottle 😭. Does help define curls a little but I use it mostly to moisturize my hair before I go out (in braids usually)." —:|

Promising review: "I never write reviews, but I'm so happy about my sparkling white dishwasher that I can't help it! Ever since I moved into my apartment, my dishwasher was totally yellow inside. There were also lighter colored streaks all in it...it was pretty gross to look at. I read about this product in an article and was so excited to order it! After one use, my dishwasher looks brand new! I seriously can't believe it. Didn't expect it to work so well!" —M. Street

Promising review: "The only reason I'm giving the Folex 5 stars is because there's no place to give it 10. My dog, Sweetie, while playing on the tan carpeting in the family room, got hold of a blue Pilot G-2 pen and chewed through the outer casing and through the ink cartridge, leaving an approximately 6x12-inch area of carpeting splotched with blue ink. It took four or five applications, but following the label instructions to the letter, the spot was totally removed. Way to go Folex. Outstanding!" —Bob

Promising review: "I don’t write reviews often (indeed I believe this is the first one ever), but I cannot let another day go by without expressing how amazing this mitt is! I wasn’t expecting much of anything. I have been exfoliating with a different but similar product for a long time and had been assuming it worked, so I didn’t anticipate the amount of dead skin this mitt removed. I made sure my skin was nice and wet for 10 minutes before I attempted to use it. After the first scrub of my arm I stood there in the shower stunned, staring at the mitt in shock. I scrubbed every inch of myself I could before my arms got tired! My skin is so soft it feels absolutely dreamy! I put lotion on and I can’t stop touching my amazingly soft skin! You will not regret buying this mitt, just make sure your skin is soaked and softened for at least 10 minutes before you try to use it!" —Jillian Amanda

Promising review: "Love this. I have many items to plug in now that I have to work at home. There’s plenty of room to plug in two laptops, a computer, a monitor and my Alexa safely. It’s a little bulkier than I was expecting but that is due to the room your items will need." —Jennifer

Promising review: "If you do nail art or want to perfect your nail polishing skills, this is the product for you. Easy to use, dries sparkly so you know it’s dry, easy peel-off in one piece, and a clean finish. I do a lot of nail art and stamping. Some of the stamping polishes are really hard to get off the cuticle but with this, they come off cleanly. Helps when I do my toes, too, if I get a little messy, the mess comes off with the latex. You can also switch the brush so you don’t waste the bottle when the brush gets clumpy." —Diannah S.

Promising review: "I've got an outdoor can, the kind with that the mechanical arm on the garbage truck picks up and tips over, with the lid opening by gravity. Placed this on the inside of the lid near the hinge to lessen the chances of it being scraped off during emptying and no flies/maggots! There's no apparent odor, it just seems to put a big hurt on the fly party that used to be my trash can (litter box contents, remnants of meat, etc.)." —Michael E. Bradley
Get it from Amazon for $9.99.
Promising review: "Takes away that gross smell... It seems counterintuitive to put a little packet down your garbage disposal to clean it, but this does actually seem to work, at least for getting out weird smells that baking soda and vinegar don't really touch. I scrub the sink down first, especially around the garbage disposal area, rinse it down, and then just follow the directions on the package. I have used it with single, large-size sinks and with double sinks — only difference is that the double sink will have blue cleaning foam rise up the drain, which you rinse away when the disposal sounds clear again. I have tried the foaming cleaner in a can, but unfortunately it stopped coming out of the can about 10% of the way through. Went back to this tried and true." —KS

Promising review: "I recently went camping and was able to pack a lot into this bag. It zipped up easily. I love the color, it's almost a 'neutral pink' and not too 'look at me, I'm Barbie in the woods!' The shoulder strap was comfortable, the handles were comfortable, too. It was snowing while unloading from the truck to the cabin and despite this bag getting wet (and VERY cold) everything inside was very dry." —Smile Saurus

Promising review: "Having this just as a leave-in is super convenient and I do feel like it worked better on my hair than Olaplex, which I know made my hair healthier but I could never see or feel it. This I can feel. I swim 2–3 times/week and do all I can to counter the chlorine on my fine naturally curly hair. This makes my hair feel more moisturized and healthy, and it’s curling nicely." —BusyLilHoneyBee
Get it from Amazon for $29+ (available in two sizes).
Promising review: “Wow! Bought this little steamer and am really impressed. I did one go on my brothers’ couches and look at the difference. It could use one more go to get to the ‘looking like brand new’ but this is amazing!!! When you watch the video in the product description there is something oddly satisfying about watching the dirty water get suctioned in after spraying the surface you are cleaning, but I must admit I didn’t believe it would work that well. Well it does!! Just like advertised! I am so impressed. If you are considering this cleaner get it, you will not be disappointed.” —edina bajraktarevic

Promising review: "We have a door in the kitchen that leads to the yard and live in a wooded area. We always have small bugs coming in through this door because we are always in and out with the dog. There was a week or two where we were seeing gnats or flies EVERY DAY. After we bought this we saw a major difference. We don’t bother trying to kill anything now as they all eventually follow the light. We leave it plugged in all day and night and love the results. We have four more replacement cards and they don’t fill up easily, so I can see the cards lasting a while. My favorite part is that it acts as a night-light, and the sticky part is on the back so we don’t even see the flies sticking to it until we unplug. Love the sleek and simple design of the plug in as well. I’m so happy I don’t have to take out the swatter anymore. Highly recommend this product!" —Priscilla

Promising review: "We tried everything to get rid of hard water stains and nothing worked. We were getting our house ready to sell and our tub and sink were a mess. We tried this product and it worked immediately, restoring everything to like new. It was fast and really worked! We even used it to clean our glass stove top. It was amazing how clean it got things. I have a bad back and have to be careful about scrubbing things and it takes no effort to use. We use it in our new house and love it!" —Bradley

Mane Club is a small haircare business making cruelty-free and vegan products.
BuzzFeed editor Elizabeth Lilly loves this spray:
"I have a very thick head of naturally curly hair and have put it through just about everything, including all kinds of hot tools, at-home dye kits, the gamut of shampoo and conditioner types, basically every dry shampoo and hair oil in existence, and just about anything else to try for a story for you dear readers. Lots of products have either straight-up failed, been meh enough for me to not recommend, or fantastic but so costly that I feel guilty recommending them. Basically, a lot of stuff ends up in the trash or pawned off on my (grateful) friends when it isn't a fit for me. But THIS STUFF. This stuff has become my go-to for spraying on my wet hair and then blow-drying. Normally I'd apply a heat protector and an oil treatment or leave-in conditioner before blow-drying. But this 10-in-1 treatment takes the cake! Most of the time when I use it, I don't even need to finish off my hair with hair oil (I've been doing that as an essential hair step for years now). It's really that good! Here, I have freshly blow-dried hair with just this post-shower using this Amika blow-dryer brush. This brush is fantastic on its own but this spray-on treatment has more or less doubled this brush's effectiveness. My hair comes out feeling softer, looking shinier and healthier, and stays looking good for days — which is especially great news because I wash my hair about every four days. 'Tis time for me to unload a bunch of hair products I now no longer need to my friends."

Promising review: "I never thought I’d be writing a review for straws, but here we are. These are FANTASTIC. I try to be as eco-friendly as possible but was ready to give up. I’ve tried metal straws, but they are tough to clean, and I don’t love metal against my teeth. I’ve tried other reusable plastic and silicone options, but they don’t work for thicker drinks like smoothies. These actually address all of my issues. I’ve used them for thick smoothies that I drink daily and just for other everyday drinks like water. They couldn’t be easier to snap open and clean, dry, then easily snap back into shape to use again." —M. Alexandra

Have coilier hair? This paddle brush might work better for you!
Promising review: "I have a headful of thick, wavy shoulder-length hair. I sometimes wear it curly, but when I want it smooth, this tool is a huge time saver. I used to have to section my hair and spend a half hour or more flat ironing it. I still section it a little, but I can go from a big mop of mess to a sleek flip in very little time. I just spritz my hair and go to work. I have arthritis and it is a big bonus also that the handle is big so I don't have to use a pinch grip to hold it. I also have shoulder pain and the less time I can spend with my arms over my head, the better. This tool is worth every penny." —Anonymous

The tool comes with a knife, pliers, screwdrivers, wire cutters, a wire stripper, scissors, a package opener, bottle and can openers, a file and a ruler.
Promising review: "Great value and quality. I've already bought several as gifts and everyone loves them. I keep on in my car and in my camping gearbox. Anybody familiar with Leatherman knows they make good quality products. The only consideration is the tools on each Leatherman multitool. For the money, this is the best value of all the Leatherman multis. Cheap enough so that if it gets lost or scratched up you won't cry too much. I like that the knife blade is on the outside so that you do not have to unfold the thing to deploy it. The fit and finish just shines quality. There are cheaper multis out there and I've tried them all, in the end, I keep coming back to Leatherman." —Avg. Joe

Promising review: "I am so glad I ordered an extra pack of these. My goal for January was to organize the basement. I have TONS of plastic bins and whenever I need something, I have to open each to find what I’m looking for. I took a few hours the first weekend cleaning out and organizing everything and the bins. I took pictures of the contents of each bin, put one of these stickers on each bin then associated the pics with the sticker’s QR code and voila, done. IF YOU LIKE TO BE ORGANIZED, GET THESE STICKERS!" —Fred Labro

Pinion Pins is a small business!
Promising review: "I was super worried about if I would have enough of the Pinions, and I totally do! My duvet is kinda thick and the Pinions pierced through with no problems! Plus with a little extra room if I had some extra layers. I REALLY like how you have to have the magnet tool to pull them apart. Other duvet tools I’ve seen just plain suck. The clips are never reliable and the ties just don’t stay. This handy dandy tool ENSURES nothing will move. I placed one on each corner of the duvet and then I put one on the middle edge between each corner. Absolutely no moving! Don’t walk, RUN TO BUY THIS. I also like how unnoticeable they are." —Abigayle Mishler

Promising review: "Should have gotten these years ago. They are absolutely wonderful. I can move heavy furniture easily without damaging hardwood floors or getting stuck in area rugs. Because the legs of my furniture are thick and cover them almost completely, I keep them under everything and can move furniture to vacuum. Really great!" —MMLELL

They're *also* great for air drying bags you've washed out to reuse.
Promising review: "I used three of these to help me make freezer meals for after I have a baby. I can honestly say I don't know how I would have filled the freezer bags without these ingenious baggy holders. I was able to dump veggies, spices, meat, and cans of heavy beans and tomatoes into the bags, and they stood up the entire time without sliding or spilling. One of the bags I stuffed literally to the brim, as full as it could go, and the bag did not fall down. I would definitely recommend these." —Tom S.

Depending on the temperature and humidity of the environment, these absorbers can last up to 60 days!
Promising review: "I work in a 120-year-old house and the closets are musty. I couldn't believe how fast these moisture absorbers filled up with water and how big of a difference that I noticed in the smell. I will continue to purchase these!" —Kindle Customer

Promising review: "Always used WD-40 and it's clearly superior in the field, but what makes it even better is when they introduce the dual-use head where you can spray it out of the normal sprayer, or lift the arm up to use that. They've gone a step further and made that arm flexible. The best part about this new arm is while flexible, it holds the shape you bend it to well, and can easily be straightened out when done. There's also a trick to this nozzle: You can purchase this one, then purchase the non-bendable version going forward and paying the normal amount. Just remove the head when this bottle runs out, and replace the heads of the cheaper versions with this one." —JT Thompson
