1. A painless, mint-flavored teeth-whitening pen that gets results from the very first use, lightening up years’ worth of stains from coffee, tea, wine, or just…you know. Existing as a human with teeth.

Promising review: “I bought this on a whim when I saw someone review it on TikTok. After using it several times over the course of a week, I immediately noticed the difference in the color of my teeth. I’m a smoker and a heavy coffee drinker. I’m finding that this product will be a lifesaver in terms of what my smile looks like. I would definitely recommend!!” —Mully

2. A “Bread Buddy” dispenser that keeps sandwich bread fresh by ensuring it stays *way* more airtight than it does in just the bag alone, and also lets you use the bread bag in a clever way to dispense slices one by one. Tons of reviewers are noting how much longer their bread stays fresh (and how much easier it is to store without worrying about it getting smushed!).

Promising review: “The Buddeez Sandwich Bread Dispenser is great! It does exactly what it was intended for. I live alone and I don’t quite go through bread often enough before the last quarter section of the loaf starts to go stale. I was originally looking for something to put a loaf of bread in as a shell for my vacuum sealer, that would keep the bread from getting crushed from the pressure. This dispenser solved all of my problems. Thank you!” —DRMcQuaig

Get it from Amazon for $11.74. 

3. A fast-acting ChomChom pet hair remover roller that is deeply beloved by pet owners — it’s like a sticky lint roller, but specifically designed to pick up pet hair and not only lock it in, but stash it inside the roller itself, so you don’t end up making matters worse by just shoving the hair around instead of getting rid of it properly.

Promising review: “I have a golden retriever and the shedding is out of control. My fabric sofa is constantly covered in hair and I finally decided to try this after reading an article about popular TikTok products. The reviews do not lie, this thing works magic!! I wish I had taken a before and after picture because the difference is noticeable. I watched the video tutorial before I tried it to ensure I was using it properly and everything he says is true, you do really have to put your arm to work with vigorous back and forth movement! However, I find it’s a great arm workout and it works wonders.” —Joanne Ertel

Get it from Amazon for $24.95. 

4. A foaming garbage disposal cleaner you can plop into your sink, run a little water on, and let its blue magic fizz its way up to the top while clearing out all the gunk from your culinary adventures in one go.

Promising review: “Saw on TikTok (don’t judge) and automatically added to cart. So easy to use, takes probably a minute to fully bubble up and clean, and you’re left with a clean sink! I use with other drain cleaning products, but would 100% recommend for weekly maintenance.” —Jessica Hamilton

Get a four-pack from Amazon for $3.98.

5. A truly mystifying electric spinning makeup brush cleaner so fun to use that you’ll look forward to gunking up all your brushes with product so you’ll have an excuse to whip it out again.

Promising review: “Let me start by saying I have NEVER cleaned makeup brushes but saw this on TikTok, so I wanted to try. Super easy to use. I just did soap and water. Worked great on powder brushes not so well on liquid brushes, but maybe I need to use makeup remover for those brushes. For the price thought it was a great buy.” —alyssa

Get it from Amazon for $18.98 (available in black and pink). 

6. A no-scrub weekly shower cleaner you can quite literally “set and forget” to maintain its cleanliness over time — once you apply it after a shower, you just have to wait 8 to 12 hours and it’ll quietly tackle the soap scum, grime, oils, mold, and mildew stains without any elbow grease from you.

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


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

Get it from Amazon for $17.97.

7. A bottle of Elizavecca Hair Treatment, an Olaplex “dupe” repairing mask infused with collagen ingredients and protein extracts that will help restore hair health and reduce shedding. All you gotta do is apply it on wet hair after a shampoo, wait five minutes, and rinse it out.

This is designed to work on all hair types, with reviewers with 2b to 4c curls mentioning it worked for them! 

Promising review: “I saw this on TikTok, and in between other compares products that were four times the price, I decided to bite the bullet and buy this — let me tell you, best decision ever! I shampooed my hair, then heavily massaged this in, from ends to scalp. The carton says 5–20 minutes… But I ended up leaving it in for two days! And after washing it out, my hair was so shiny, bouncy and CURLY! My curl recovery journey has been long, but this has helped restore so much vibrance and shape to my hair. My mom has been stealing it from my bathroom every couple of days, after having similar results on her hair. Going to need to buy a few more to ward her off.” —curlyhead3

8. The Pink Stuff’s Miracle Multipurpose Cleaner Spray, which lives up to its name and *then* some considering the feats it can accomplish — people compare it to a Magic Eraser for everything from scrubbing the oven to caked-on pans to cleaning walls to getting stubborn stains off tiles and mirrors and sooooo, so much more.

Promising review: “Glad I found this product on TikTok. Does 95%–100% of the job in seconds! Definitely worth the money.” —Mother of 4

Get it from Amazon for $9.11. 

9. A bottle of nail and cuticle repair oil that you simply brush on your nail beds once a day to condition and strengthen all those brittle spots and painful hangnails, leaving you with thick, strong nails and nail beds you’re not tempted to pick at all the livelong day.

Promising review: “Found it on TikTok and I’m so pleased with the results. My nails are getting stronger and growing. And the best of all not chipping. Love it.” —sidna saavedra

Get it from Amazon for $8.50.

10. A bottle of Folex Instant Carpet Stain Remover, a water-based cleaning spray that will rescue your carpets from juuuuust about any peril you put them in, whether it’s ink, grease, dirt, pet stains, food, coffee, blood, or even *old* stains you’ve long given up on.

Check out this TikTok of the Folex Carpet Spot Remover to see it in action. 

Promising review: “There are products that you love and buy again. And then there are products that you love and can’t live without. And then above that, are a few select products that you revere and hold with the highest honor. Folex is that product. I have used Folex for years and it works wonders on everything from spilt coffee, wine, and dog messes, without any chemical smells or residue. But my love for Folex grew so much deeper when I dropped a 32-ounce jar of salsa down the stairs. My husband took one look and declared that the stairs were ruined and would need to be replaced. I took a look, grabbed the Folex and said, ‘We’ve got this.’ If you have children, pets or are very clumsy with your canned goods, you need this bulk-size jug in your arsenal of cleaning supplies.” —Carobnty

Get it from Amazon for $11.96+ (available in two sizes and in multi-packs).

11. A set of heat-safe microwave bowl holders — you can pull this right out of the microwave with your bowl without burning your hands, *plus* use them to hold your bowl in your hands or lap while you’re eating (presumably in front of the TV, as one does) without hurting your fingers. Bonus: it also helps keep your food warm for longer!

Check out a TikTok of the microwave bowl holders in action. 

Bonus — the insulation of these also keeps cold food like ice cream colder for longer (and helps prevent your fingers from freezing!). 

Promising review: “Buy these for yourself and everyone you know. They are soft and fit a variety of sizes of bowls to put under them in the microwave and eat from. My kids love them. We bought some to gift to other people too, and I will get some for my son to use at college. Made of a heavy terry cloth that can be thrown right in the washer when needed. We used towels before under our bowls, but these cradle the bowls so are easier to hold. We bought some bigger plate sizes too.” —Heidi J. 

Get a set of four from Amazon for $14.99 (available in five color combos). 

12. A multi-use pill splitter that also has a function to grind pills and serves as a pill storage box to boot. Because this thing is an overachiever, it *also* can serve as a small drinking cup if you’re taking pills on the go. Pet owners swear by this to help crush meds into their fur babies’ food!

Check out a TikTok of the pill crusher and grinder in action. 

Promising review: “I can’t swallow pills (effects of GERD) so pill crushing has been a mess and a pain. This little gadget is quick, easy and keeps the process tidy. Made of sturdy plastic, it’s lightweight and compact and does the job beautifully! Highly recommend!” —Stephanie

Get it from Amazon for $9.99. 

13. A ridiculously charming octopus-shaped blackhead remover you can use to gently scrub as part of your skin routine or in the shower to remove excess sebum to exfoliate pores and pull out blackheads, whiteheads, and other miscellaneous gunk from the day that you’d rather evict.

Promising review: “I saw this on TikTok, it works great so far.” —MarMarManuel

*Another* promising review: “After just two days of use, this adorable little octopus has done wonders for me, smells great too. Here’s how I used it: I wore down the stick just a little to where the texture from the salt is visible, scrubbed around on my face so there was plenty of product, then I used my fingers to gently massage all the gunk away. Rinse, pat dry, and enjoy the softness. Highly recommended for people with sensitive skin like myself.” —LuckLocust

Get it from Amazon for $12.50. 

14. First Aid Beauty’s KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub Exfoliant to help exfoliate and smooth skin by dealing with rough patches or dry bumps — a lot of reviewers with keratosis pilaris and similar skin textures swear by this!

Promising review: “I saw this on TikTok and Instagram. I decided to try it and it really works. I used it on my thighs and upper arms. I noticed a difference the first time and even more the second time!!! Fabulous product. Worth every penny.” —Lana

Get it from Amazon for $12+ (available in three sizes). 

15. A six-outlet wall charger designed specifically for larger chargers that also comes equipped with two USB fast-charging ports *and* a night-light, so your WFH setup is as organized as possible.

Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

16. Paula’s Choice Salicylic Acid Exfoliant, a true skincare MVP that reviewers swear by for reducing the size of pores, dealing with acne and redness, and helping tighten and rejuvenate skin. It’s designed to work on all skin types and a lot of reviewers noticed *next day* results.

Promising review: “I had seen several reviews on TikTok about this product and I decided to try it for myself and see how good it was as they said. I had pores and pimples around my cheeks (I have ever since I was a teenager), I’ve tried different products but none worked as well as this one. Every night before going to bed, I apply it to my face along with a moisturizer (I prefer during the night so it can stay the longest). And wow, I am not kidding, the next day you can already see how the redness is fading away and any recent pimples start to get smaller, as well as my pores on my cheek area! I had not seen a difference that fast with other popular products, but this one did. I highly recommend, the price is worth it. It really does improves your skin and it looks more healthy and glowing. In my opinion 10/10 :).” —Mariel Garza

Get it from Amazon for $11+ (available in three sizes). 

17. A pack of the internet-beloved Mighty Match Pimple Spot Treatment, a hydrocolloid sticker that you can apply straight onto a zit to flatten it, reduce redness, and even suck the gunk out of individual trouble spots overnight. Personally *love* to see a problem magically disappear while I’m snoozing.

Promising review: “I heard all about these on TikTok so I decided to order. I switched my birth control and was having a ton of breakouts, these are amazing! They helped me stop picking at my face and my skin is so clear now. Will always have these in my house from now on!” —Kiara Galloway 

Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

18. A set of fast-acting Keurig cleaner pods you can simply put through a cycle on the machine to get rid of all the crusted-on grinds and residue that are *definitely* affecting the taste of your coffee, even if you haven’t noticed over time.

Promising review: “I had no idea that cleaning a Keurig was a thing. I bought these because I saw them on TikTok, believe it or not. I wanted to give it a go because my Keurig isn’t that old and I didn’t think it would do anything. IT WORKS SO WELL! My Keurig wasn’t as nasty as some I’ve seen lucky. I would highly recommend, keeps everything running correctly and clean.” —Lauren

Get a set of six from Amazon for $9.95.

19. Urban Skin Rx’s Even Tone Cleansing Bar, a 3-in-1 cleanser, exfoliator, and brightening mask that reviewers rave about for helping fade acne scars and dark spots, even out skin tone, and help prevent acne breakouts.

Promising review: “10/10. I bought it after watching many TikToks about this product. I’m so glad I did. It made my face really even and I rarely get acne anymore.” —Julie

Get it from Amazon for $12.90+ (available in two sizes). 

20. A rose gold rechargeable electric lighter you can use to replace all your old gas ones. This one is not only chic as heck, but completely flameless, and made with a long stem so you can use it to light gas burners and larger candles without dealing with an open flame.

This also comes in other pretty colors, but I am especially partial to this one because I bought it for my parents (their kitchen is entirely pink and one of my favorite places on Earth), and this was SO EASY to use — not to mention super safe! I’m a big weenie about fire (LOL, self-preservation) so I’ve always stuck to extended-arm gas lighters, but this is much better for the environment (plus cuter), so I feel a lot better about using it. You can read my full review of the Leejie electric lighter for more deets!

Promising review: “Works like a charm. I saw this on a TikTok. Knew immediately that I needed it. I love candles and this is so much better than a match or lighter. It’s kept a charge for months. I use it several times a month.” —dwhite3012

Get it from Amazon for $8.49 (available in five colors).

21. A money-saving personal ATM piggy bank for anyone who needs a motivating, genuinely fun way to start saving a few bucks for an end-of-the-month treat or fun night out. Parents also use this to help encourage kids to save money they’ve earned as well.

Promising review: “I am a 27-year-old who needed a safe place to keep my cash to start saving. For me, a savings account just doesn’t cut it, I always dip into it. I bought this for self-discipline purposes. Symbolically for me, depositing money into a safe means it should remain untouched. It’s super cool how it smoothly takes the bills in. It won’t show you a total or anything, but it feels good to slip dollar after dollar and $20 after $20 in this machine and know it’s adding up to something surprising later. Setup was super easy and its been functioning since I’ve bought it! This isn’t just for kids! I enjoy it!” —pesobunny

Get it from Amazon for $24.29 (clip the 10% off coupon on the product page for this price). 

22. A set of bedsheet fasteners to lock your fitted sheets neatly into place once and for all, so you can finally get the peaceful, untangled sleep you deserve every night.

Get a set of four from Amazon for $9.95 (available in three colors). 

23. A dishwasher magnet so nobody ever has to do the awkward guessing game of “what is the current status of this plate I want to eat off of” (or worse, nobody accidentally puts a bunch of dirty dishes away 😬).

Promising review: “I bought this because of a TikTok video. Super cool and now nobody has to ask me if the dishes are clean or not.” —D. Washington

Get it from Amazon for $7.89 (available in five styles). 

24. A reviewer-beloved anti-dandruff shampoo to relieve flaking and itching and help prevent outbreaks by getting directly to the root. A lot of reviewers mention that it not only started working from the first use, but it *also* helped with shedding and hair loss caused by dandruff in the first place.

before and after image of reviewer with dandruff on their scalp and without

This shampoo was designed to work for sensitive scalps, color-dyed, and chemically processed hair, as well as for all hair types and textures, with reviewers with 3b–4c curls mentioning it worked for them.

Promising review: “I saw this product from a TikTok video. I was hesitant. I have been dealing with dandruff for almost 10 years, fortunately not that heavy but enough where it was embarrassing. I tried everything. Leave in conditioner, tea tree oil, Head and Shoulders, etc. One brand did work for a couple of days but that’s it. But this product has worked EFFECTIVELY. Dandruff-free for two months so far. Can leave your hair feeling a little dry so just use conditioner and it will balance out. If other products aren’t working for you with dandruff I can confidently recommend this one.” —Martin C. 

Get it from Amazon for $14.84.

25. A roll-up drying rack for your kitchen sink that’s perfect for anyone who doesn’t have a dishwasher, or anyone whose kitchen doesn’t have room to spare — not only will this dry dishes, but it’s heat-resistant, so you can pop hot pots and pans on it while you’re cooking as well.

Promising review: “I bought this because I saw it on TikTok and I’m so glad I did! I hate having things on my counters that don’t belong. I have a dishwasher but I have some things (like most everyone) that aren’t dishwasher safe. I love that I can just roll this out and dry my dishes over the sink. The fact that air is able to get to all sides allows dishes like cups and bowls to actually get dry. Prior to this I was using a drying mat next to my sink, but I was always having to towel dry items that had been sitting out ‘drying’ for hours. Even my husband is impressed. He has told me multiple times it was such a good buy!” —Sheri

Get it from Amazon for $10.89 (available in eight sizes).

26. A popular foot exfoliant foot peel reviewers swear by for calluses and rough, cracked skin — you apply the two bootie-shaped masks on your feel for an hour, wash your feet, and then over the next five to seven days enjoy the bizarre satisfaction of watching the dead skin on your feet peel away to reveal smooth feet.

Reviewer's feet with dead skin peeling off

Promising review: “TikTok made me buy it. My feet were dry, cracked, and needed this. This works AMAZING! After two to three days my feet felt itchy. Trust the process. After the third day my feet began to itch a little. I showered after work and just be prepared because the process was FREAKY! My feet are so soft, no cracks. I love how they feel and look now. I bought a second pack. I’ll continue to use this foot peel.” —Mermaidme

Get it from Amazon for $19.99. 

27. A set of Wad-Free pads to ensure that your sheets stay separate from each other in the dryer and come out fresh, dry, and unwrinkled instead of looking like they got into a wet cotton brawl.

Wad-Free is a small business established in 2020 after the founder Cyndi Bray self-taught computer-aided design to create the pads.

Promising review: “THIS ACTUALLY WORKS!!!! I saw a TikTok about these and decided to order. Sheets balling all up in the washer and dryer has been a pet peeve of mine for forever. I was super skeptical of these, but I tried it, and it works as advertised! It’s a little on the expensive side IMO, and that’s kinda holding me back from purchasing a second set, but they really do work.” —StrangerThings

Get a set of two from Amazon for $18.99.

28. A bottle of Drop It, a natural wine sulfate and tannin remover that works its magic on your glass in just 20 seconds — instead of reaching for more expensive wines with fewer sulfates, you can enjoy a reasonably-priced pinot knowing you’ve spared yourself the infamous post-wine headache or allergic reactions.

Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

It’s also a lot more cost-effective and environmentally friendly than wine wands or other competitors — a single bottle of this can be used to treat up to 55 glasses of wine, as opposed to wands that can only do a few glasses each before they get tossed. Drop It recommends 1–2 drops for each glass of white wine, 2–3 for a glass of red, and 7–9 if you’re treating the whole bottle at once. Once it’s in the glass, swirl lightly for 20 seconds, and you should be raring to go!

Promising review: “I ordered this product after seeing it on TikTok with further investigation. And I must say it does work. I love sweet wine but will always get a headache the next morning (one glass). After using I did not have one the next morning 😊.” —Theresa B. 

Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

29. A shampoo scalp massager you can use in the shower to massage and exfoliate your scalp, so you can get all of the relaxing decadence of feeling like someone is massaging your head without physically going to a salon. Psst — a lot of reviewers mention this has also helped with psoriasis, dandruff, and scalp tenderness!

I started using one of these a few months ago and WOWZA, it really helps you get extra mileage out of your shampoo. I have a whole lot of hair on my head so sometimes it’s a struggle to feel like I’ve soaped up my whole scalp thorough, but this was a very effective way to spread out the suds and really get them to the roots. I was worried it might tangle in my hair, but it was totally fine on that front, too. I’ve noticed that my hair has been a little less greasy at the roots since I started using it. And I’m echoing a ton of reviewers here when I say it just feels reeeeeally, really nice.

Promising review: “I saw this little thing all over TikTok and everyone swore by it. To be honest, they’re right and I now swear by it. It’s perfectly soft and sturdy to massage the scalp. Works shampoo into roots, helps with dry skin and such. I absolutely love it and I use it every time I wash my hair. I most definitely would recommend to anyone. Don’t hesitate.” —Z

Get it from Amazon for $6.98 (available in three colors).

30. A set of itty-bitty dermaplaning razors you can use to take care of those lil’ unibrow hairs that keep dodging your tweezers or work whatever face fuzzies you might want to take care of in a gentle way.

31. A pumice stone that will make the inside of your toilet look brand-spanking-new, even if the rings have already thwarted your efforts with the toilet brush.

Get it from Amazon for $9.34.

32. Plus a Scrubbing Bubbles toilet cleaning stamp because honestly? Cleaning the toilet every week is a scam. Let this do the job for you (and prevent grime build up and toilet rings while it’s at it!).

Promising review: “I was sooo skeptical and was confused about how they’d work but the gel solidifies and with every flush, suds wash through with the water and it really makes a fresh difference. Also the scent is light but really nice and fresh! I recommend these 100%! They’re super interesting but they do the job.” —Janet

33. An all-purpose car upholstery cleaner so you can go ham on the interior of your car and lift up all the stains in one deeply satisfying go.

Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

34. The internet-famous Revlon oil-absorbing volcanic face roller you simply swipe over your face like a magic wand that makes excess oil disappear — super convenient and *way* less wasteful than using blotting strips and time wasting than fancy powders that need a ton of blending work.

Promising review: “First off, if you have extremely oily skin, this. is. it. I was so tired of getting blotting powder/wipes. It felt wasteful and always left residue on my face. I saw this on TikTok and NEEDED it. It was backordered but then I got an email saying it was in stock and I was SO excited. Not only is it affordable, but it’s washable, which helps you save money and be less wasteful.” —Kelsey B.

Get it from Amazon for $8.72. 

35. A fume-free oven cleaner that’s gentle enough that you don’t need protective gloves to use it, but tough enough that it’ll erase the evidence of all your baking misadventures and that time you fell asleep while cooking pizza rolls.

Promising review: “I saw this on a TikTok. I have used Easy Off in the past but hated the smell. This is so much better and let me tell you I am super sensitive to smells. Works great in the oven, and also as I saw on the video works great in shower stalls and tubs!” —Amy L Viau

Get it from Amazon for $6.27.

36. A suuuper-popular Bio-Oil made with vitamins A and E, chamomile, and lavender — you may recognize it as a product a lot of people use to help fade scars (both old and new), soothe cracked and dry skin, and help moisturize without affecting your pores, but people are also using it in quarantine to help with dry and painful skin on their hands from handwashing and sanitizing.

FWIW re: scars, though, this stuff really works. I had thyroid surgery a few years ago and Bio-Oil took me from looking like I’d stumbled out of the Red Wedding to virtually no detectable scar within a few months. All I did was apply it once in the morning and once at night.

Promising review: “Acne scars? Read this. I found out about this product while scrolling through TikTok last week. It came highly recommended, so I decided to look up the price on Amazon. After reading several reviews, I figured I might as well try it out. Today is the fourth day I use the product on my face. My skin looks dewy and nice. The discoloration on my cheeks from a few years old acne scars is improving. My skin looks younger — it’s hard to describe, but I can see a difference. It looks less rough. I’ve been using it morning and night.” —Yasmin Rodriguez

Get it from Amazon for $8.59+ (available in four sizes and two bundles).

37. A mold and mildew removal gel you can leave on the offending spots in kitchens and bathrooms for six hours, then wipe away like nothing nefarious ever grew there in the first place.

Promising review: “It’s a little hard to squeeze but that totally makes up for the AMAZING results. I was embarrassed about our tubs because the people we bought our house from didn’t caulk or seal them properly and this resulted in mildew buildup. I tried EVERYTHING until I saw this on TikTok, I believe — MIRACLE FREAKING WORKER. I will be buying more, the only complaint I will ever have is the shipping got mixed up but that is not a problem and was fixed very easily!” —Brooklyn Nguyen

Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

38. A pack of AirPod-cleaning putty that anyone whose AirPods have been squawking at them lately needs to invest in — sometimes they just need to be cleaned out, and the sound quality will be good as new!

Promising review: “OKAY. I bought this because I saw it on a TikTok. I was hesitant to buy it because I was afraid the putty would get stuck to and damage my AirPods, which were FILTHY (unfortunately). However, when I tried it out, it worked really well; you can put a decent amount of pressure, and it does not stick to the AirPods at all. It got a LOT of gunk out of the AirPods. I was so shocked. But the best part was that after I used it, my AirPods’ SOUND QUALITY was so good?!?!?!?!? It was great. 10/10 I’d recommend this 100%.” —NJoshi

39. An Erase-A-Hole putty that’s basically an $11 investment in keeping your walls in tip top shape no matter *how* ambitious your decorating gets. This easy three-step process will have the walls looking brand spanking new in no time flat.

Promising review: “Recommended off TikTok and I love. I didn’t realize how many holes were in the walls until I got this product! Easy to use and good filling. Much better than a tub of spackle for small fixes.” —Leigh Helsel

Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

40. A compact reusable boba straw disguised as an ADORABLE boba tea-shaped keychain. Its lid has a piercer to get past the plastic on the top of the cup, and the silicone straw splits down the middle so you can easily clean it out once you’re done. Reviewers also love that this straw doesn’t have any “taste” to it like other reusable ones do!

Promising review: “Super sturdy, easy to put together, cute, compact, allergen-safe, and simple to clean … It kind of solved all my problems with other reusable straws, and it’s small enough to use with some other drinks other than boba.” —Gemma Rodrick 

Get it from Boba Tribe for $16.99 (originally $19.99). 

41. “The Clean Ball,” which is a nifty little gizmo you can stick in your purse or bag to pick up all the crumbs and debris that settle down there — now it’ll be clean as a whistle whenever you go rooting through it, and you won’t have to get all the “ick!!” on your belongings.

Promising review: “Best invention! I purchased after seeing it in a TikTok video, and it works soooo well in my purse.” —Wenhether

*Another* promising review: “This little ball is genius!! Rolls around in my purse, which I live out of. It picks up a lot of lint, debris, or even crumbs. Easy to find with the bright pink. Just remove and wash and it’s ready to go again. The price was great and something I can use for years. If you live out of your purse this a must-have!!” —dj3biggs

Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in two colors). 

42. CeraVe’s Hydrating cleanser made with hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and glycerin — aka, all the good stuff to hydrate your face and remove makeup and oil without stripping your skin of its natural moisture. Psst — a lot of reviewers with sensitive skin and acne swear by this, because it’s super gentle *and* super effective.

Promising review: “Got this after seeing a recommendation on TikTok. It’s been a lifesaver for me. I have dry, red, sensitive, acne-prone skin. Most cleansers strip my skin, but not this one. It’s been helping keep my skin clear while not drying it for a few months now. If you have dry skin this is a must!” —L Ashburne

Get it from Amazon for $14.23.

43. A hydrating intense-therapy lip balm complete with SPF 25 to not only help repair dry, chapped lips, but continually protect ’em against the elements. Reviewers note that this wasn’t just more effective than other brands, but it worked *fast*.

Promising review: “So I have been a loyal EOS fan for quite some time but you constantly have to reapply and honestly my lips are still cracked. I found Jack Black balm from a TikTok video and it has been glorious. I keep reaching for it to reapply and I don’t need it. It doesn’t feel greasy on my lips but it is a bit sticky? Or waxy. Either way, I don’t mind it at all, and it also smells pretty darn good.” —Trisha

Get it from Amazon for $8 (available in six flavors and in packs of three).

44. A 24-pocket door-hanging sleeve, but don’t you dare call this gem a mere shoe organizer when it has *infinite* bedroom closet potential. Reviewers use it to organize anything in their bedrooms from scarves to leggings to candles. Get yourself an organizer that can do it all!

This is so versatile that reviewers use it beyond bedroom closets for pantry and cleaning storage, too!

Promising review: “TikTok told me to use this for storing travel mugs, and it was SO right. I hang this on the inside of my pantry door for all of my travel mugs, Starbucks tumblers, etc, and it works perfectly. Freed up a ton of shelf space and makes everything easy to see and access. I’m sure it would work great for shoes too, but I’m never looking back on this one, especially for the price.” —Sarah Ellison

Get it from Amazon for $9.97+ (available in three colors).

45. A DampRid Hanging Bag that absorbs up moisture in soggy spots in your home — reviewers swear by these after dealing with leaks, with rain coming in through open windows, or anywhere that stagnant, damp air is making things a little too ripe for their own good.

Promising review: “I saw this on TikTok and had to try it. I had a leak under my kitchen sink, so I put one bag under there and within in a week the bag was practically full of water. I no longer have that wet damp smell. It is great and I will buy again if needed.” —Kimberly Penro

Get a three-pack from Amazon for $13.75+ (available in two styles).

46. A broom for pet and human hair that can work on any type of floor, but is specifically designed to pull it up from the carpet faster and deeper than even a lot of vacuums can reach. In less than five minutes you’ll find out what color your carpet’s *actually* been the whole time!

An embarrassing confession: I do not have a pet, but I shed like nobody’s business. My hair gets so ingrained in the carpet that a vacuum truly does nothing for it, so I often was just unrooting clumps of hair from the floor with my hands (sorry for the visual). I bought this broom and it immediately started pulling up GOBS of hair. My carpet, like, genuinely changed color (turns out the pink was supposed to be much pinker, whoops). Anyway, do with that semi-horrifying information what you will — you can read my full review of the pet hair broom for more deets.

Promising review: “I have two long-haired dogs and my larger dog (a standard Aussie) sheds a lot. It’s a constant hassle to clean up and it doesn’t seem to matter how often we vacuum, there’s always more hair. I saw this product on TikTok and thought it might be worth a try to get up more hair from our carpets. It worked really well. I personally found the ‘squeegee’ side worked best on the carpet, but the brush side worked well on the tile.” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $12.98.

47. A nonscratch dish wand designed to keep your hands out of the fray, whether you’re busting grime in the bathtub or dealing with hot water in the sink. It also holds soap and/or vinegar in its handle you can eject into the sponge, so it’s delightfully self-sufficient!

Check out a TikTok of the Scotch-Brite Dishwand to see it in action. 

Promising review: “Found this ‘must do’ hack. I fill the handle of this little gadget with Dawn and a little vinegar, keep it in the shower — then a couple of times a week just scrub the shower walls while I’m in there waiting on the dang hair conditioner to do its work — killin’ two birds, I’m tellin’ ya!” —my4sons

Get it from Amazon for $2.97. 

48. Arm & Hammer odor buster balls you can indiscriminately put in any place in your home that’s smelling a lil’ funky — here’s looking at you, shoe closets and laundry rooms and that one corner of the living room Fido always loves to pee — and neutralize the smell. People also love sticking these in their smelly shoes and helmets!

Promising review: “I liked that you can just put this anywhere because of the size. Goes into my son’s stinky sneakers and adds a nice smell to any drawer or closet! Great buy!” —Ainahainagirl
