Oh, and it has also got a built-in car locator, so you will never lose your car in a parking garage again. I know that has happened to you because it has happened to everybody.
This Exfoliating Brush
An exfoliating brush is a pretty essential tool in your arsenal these days. We all have bumps and redness from shaving (especially during the summer months), and this gentle exfoliating brush will help you get rid of all that. It’s perfect for use in the shower. Just lather up and massage into your legs or arms or anywhere else that has been a little sensitive lately.
These Bed Sheet Savers
I don’t know about you, but I have one sheet for my bed that creeps up every night without fail no matter how firmly I make sure it is correctly fitted the night before.

Unless you have a perfectly placed edge in your shower, it’s near impossible to get the right angle. This simple little footrest will alleviate that struggle immediately.
These Silicone Baking Mats
The worst part about cooking or baking is the cleanup. Silicone baking mats make cleanup wildly easy. Forget about soaking and scraping your pans ever again. They make sure your food slides right off.
The prospect of cleaning a cookie sheet is sometimes enough to stop me from cooking or baking, to begin with. These amazing baking sheets would alleviate that problem in an instant.
I know what you are thinking. Charcoal? On your teeth? And it is true that there are some detractors. But the photos don’t lie, and neither do the reviewers. And they say that this stuff really works to whiten your teeth. It uses charcoal and other naturally whitening ingredients that are non-toxic. All you have to do is brush your teeth like normal using it, and you will see a difference.

I’m talking the slats of your AC, the area where the bathtub meets the floor. Anything! Its handle makes it easy to use, and the hole at the end means you can hang it anywhere!
These Stainless Steel Straws
It is 2018. Starbucks is no longer giving out plastic straws. We all saw that video of that poor sea turtle having a straw removed from its snout. Straws are evil! But if you are like me and you love drinking out of straws, all hope is not lost. Simply buy yourself reusable ones, like these stainless steel bad boys, and get to sipping! These even come with a little cleaning brush.
This FURemover Broom
This incredible broom also doubles as a squeegee, and it even comes equipped with a telescoping handle, giving you the cleaning reach of a giant. No dirt or grime or pet hair is out of reach. And because it is rubber, it is super durable and way easier to clean than those old straw brooms. This is an essential tool for anyone’s home. Seriously. Get one.

I am not kidding one bit when I tell you buying this cheap little magnetic car mount to mount my phone in my car was the single best purchase I have ever made. Seriously. These things are amazing. All you do is slide a thing magnet between your phone and its case, and this little magnet, which fits right on your car vent, will hold your phone up in perfect position forever.
This Meal Planning Pad
OK, this is like the perfect organized mean planning pad. I already do this every week (write down my meals, and then a shopping list based off of those meals), but I do it on plain old Post-Its. Which is unacceptable, especially now that I know this adorable pad exists. It’s like this meal planning pad was made for me. And it’s magnetic so you can stick it on your fridge!

This Perfect Slicer
If you are a dedicated lover of cheese, as I am, you know that buying pre-sliced cheese is for noobs. Big old blocks is where it is AT. And with this perfect cheese slicer, you will no longer ever end up with wispy cheese curls and one giant slice like when you use a knife. This bad boy gives you a perfect slice every time. You can twist the dial to your desired slice thickness, and yes, it is dishwasher safe.
This Fabric Steamer
Once relegated to dry-cleaners and high-end hotels, steamers are now smaller and cheaper than ever. Just fire up the PurSteam and run it over your clothes and watch the wrinkles fall away.

This styling station will gather your hair dryer, hairspray, brushes, and other hair styling tools all in one place, so you will always know where they are and always have them right at your fingertips.

This Can Colander
Why did I just discover this? This is one of those inventions that is almost too good to be true. This can colander fits perfectly over the head of standard-sized canned goods. Beans, tuna, whatever you need to drain, this little guy can do the job. And yes, this is dishwasher safe! Honestly, it is like someone reached into the recesses of our brains to be like, “What do people need but not even know they need?”
This Utensil Rest
Well this is just a totally genius thing that we could all use in our kitchen. Who wants to set their spatula or stirring spoon directly on the counter while you are cooking, making both things way dirtier than they have to be? This utensil rest has room for up to four different spoons or spatulas, so you can go absolutely crazy in the kitchen.
This Cast Iron Cleaner
Taking care of a cast iron skillet is like taking care of a baby. It requires a lot of love and attention, and you have to clean it the right way, otherwise, it gets really upset. The Ringer is like the most heavy-duty sponge you will ever use. It is made out of stainless steel, which means it is built to last. And because it’s stainless steel, you won’t wash away any of that great flavor you worked so hard to build up in your pan.
These Cable Clips
I feel like I have watched so many cables fly off the top of my desk as soon as I unplug them, kind of like the rope over the Cliffs of Insanity in The Princess Bride. But with these tiny little life-changing products, you will never experience that problem again. They are totally worth it. I promise you. They will make your life so much easier and save you so much time.
These Grocery Bag Handles
Look, I love to challenge myself to carry every single grocery bag in from the car at once, just like we all do. But if I’m being honest, it’s actually a real pain and I do it mostly because I am morally opposed to second trips to the car. Anything that minimizes my grocery-carrying trips between the car and the house, I am on board for, and this Mighty Handle does just that.
These Surgical Tweezers
Regular tweezers are all well and good, but sometimes you need a sharp pair that can really dig deep down there and get to the root of the problem, whether it is a hangnail, a splinter, a tick, or an ingrown hair. Once you have a pair of tweezers as amazing as these, you will never want to buy another pair again. Of course, they are also perfect for precision eyebrow shaping. They do the work of regular tweezers too!
This Anti-Chafe Balm
If you apply some of this stuff on any area of your body that normally chafes, it won’t! Your thighs, your arms, your neck, the back of your knees…whatever! It is made with natural, plant-based ingredients, and people totally swear by its effects. The reviews for this stuff are off the charts. Almost everyone has to deal with chafing on some area of their body. This is your solution.
Again, when you are cleaning your house, it is sometimes too easy to give up on the corners and hard-to-reach spots. But with brushes like these OXO Good Grips Deep Cleaning Set, no surface will go uncleaned. The set comes with a large brush and a small brush with a wiper blade on the opposite end, which is great for digging up dirt and grime from drains.
This Drain Protector
The TubShroom is pretty much a miracle product. It fits right in most standard drains and catches hair and gunk and other gross stuff before it clogs your pipes. Plus, it is so easy to clean! It is truly one of those “As Seen on TV” products that really do work in real life. If you shed a lot in the shower as I do, you need something that will catch all that hair.
