Check out our write-up of the delicious Mike’s Hot Honey!

Promising review: “I was a skeptic, but now I AM a believer. This mixed up honey is absolutely fabulous. I ordered three bottles more after my initial order. Why? Because it is really good on everything. And I mean EVERYTHING. Soft pretzels, toast, biscuits, waffles, cereal, yogurt, ice cream, and definitely pizza. Gives everything in your kitchen a small kick of sweet heat flavor without burning your mouth. I have told many of my friends about this magical elixir and they all agree — this is the BEST specialty honey any of us have ever had. Don’t hesitate to buy it. It is absolutely wonderful stuff.

Dishwasher cleaning tablets that’ll do the job of cleaning your dishwasher FOR YOU. Just pop a tablet into the machine, run a cycle, and voila.


amazon.com

These tablets remove odor-causing residue and help get rid of lime and mineral build-up that naturally occurs inside dishwashers. The tablet is designed to last throughout the entire wash cycle, and is recommended for use about once a month. These are safe to use in stainless steel tub and plastic tub dishwashers.

Promising review: “After using this product, I am happy to report that my $5 investment saved me over $500. I was ready to replace my dishwasher due to super cloudy glasses, residue, and just not getting clean. Then, I became aware that the water softener no longer was doing its job, so I had the rental company replace it. Dishwasher performance improved somewhat. I decided to do two more loads before deciding to purchase a new one. Then I saw a product test review for Affresh in a magazine. I was ordering some stuff from Amazon anyway, so I added that to my order. When it came, I tossed one of the tablets into the bottom of the full machine, per instructions, and ran the regular cycle. I did not expect the results I got! My glassware that I thought was permanently etched and ruined came out like new. Same with cutlery. The difference is unbelievable. I will use this faithfully on a monthly basis, as recommended. I can even put it on my subscribe and save order, so I will get a new pack every six months. I am amazed!” —Sheila

An oven cleaning spray so next time you go to open the oven door and pop in dinner, you’re not tempted to puke all over it because of the yucky build-up you’ve let it accumulate.


amazon.com

Good for use on ovens, broilers, and barbecue grills. Only takes about five minutes to spot clean.

Promising review: “My oven was in bad shape. I had tried doing the whole baking soda and peroxide trick, but it made things worse. I tried this after seeing it on a BuzzFeed article and it actually worked! Let it sit for about four hours and the nastiness wipes off effortlessly.” —Natalie C

A wood polish and conditioner to help restore your wooden furniture back to factory condition. Did you just get your entire house re-done by an HGTV crew, or are you just super good at picking out cleaning products?


amazon.com

Gives your wooden furniture a protective, soft luster coating thanks to Carnauba wax and beeswax. It also prevents it from drying and fading. Good for use on antiques, dining tables, kitchen cabinets, wood doors, trim, and more.

Promising review: “This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs that jumped up and scratched places, we also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were, and several other areas that were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magic eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let it sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand new. I’m buying a couple more so we can finish our cabinets and wood paneling. We’re so glad we found this product.” —Kris

Acne patches you can apply to areas where you’re breaking out. Let it sit overnight or throughout the day, peel it off, and watch it take all the pore-clogging gunk with it.


amazon.com, amazon.com

These patches contain hydrocolloid dressing with a hint of tea tree oil, calendula oil, and cica. The ingredients in this are gentle, ideal for all skin types and tones!

Promising review: “I can’t believe how much money I’ve spent on acne products over the years before I found this. Of all the products with glowing reviews, these patches have been the most effective and worth their cost. I have sensitive combo skin and deal with adult acne on a daily basis. Since my face has dry areas, I’m also more likely to pick at it (TMI, sorry). It’s terribly embarrassing to go to work with these kinds of issues day after day, so in addition to taking a prescription, I’ve been on the hunt for anything topical that would help. The first time I used one of these patches, I put it on at night. The next morning, I woke up and was kind of shocked. It actually did what it was supposed to do. You peel off the patch, and with it comes at least 90% of the nastiness that was clogging your skin. It DRASTICALLY reduces the size of the zit. I’ve also experimented with using these on cystic acne, and they work wonders for speeding up the clearing and healing process. Also, they’re comfortable to wear and stay on your face pretty well overnight!” —Greta H

A hair finishing stick for putting fussy, fly away hairs in their rightful place — neatly styled with the rest of your hair, of course!


amazon.com

It’s made of all natural ingredients and is suitable for all hair colors!

A scalp shampoo brush that not only aids in giving you a deeper clean when shampooing your hair, but relaxes your scalp, which ends up helping to reduce stress.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I have been using this for about three weeks now and I LOVE it. It feels amazing! I haven’t changed my shampoo or anything, but my hair definitely has more volume…like my roots are standing up or something! I don’t know exactly what is happening, but I am all for it.” —Lsn1986

A FlexiSnake you ~snake~ down your drains, and then pull back up a gag-worthy amount of hair. But hey, at least your drains are clean!


amazon.com

More than 4,000 hook and loop micro-hooks cover the full 18 inch span of the snake. It’s reusable! Just remove hair after use, and clean with soap, water, and a brush. It’s compatible with most bathroom drains, without needing to take off the stopper.

Promising review: “For a $5 item, this can really solve a major clog issue! I managed to clean out my bathtub drain, and now it works great. I also cleaned out my bathroom sink, which was drawing fine, but since I was already grossed out by the slimed hair I pulled out of the tub… I’m so happy to have found this little tool and suggest everyone have one on-hand for clogs.” —Tammy Parker

Silicone face mask brushes to make applying your favorite masks super easy, and a lot less messy (re: not getting your hands all dirty). Plus, reviewers boast about how simple these babies are to clean.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I love these! I was sick of having to scrape face mask gunk out from under my nails so these are a great alternative — plus I can use each for a different product if i’m using two at a time, and not risk cross-contamination. They are a little wide though, so they might not fit in all jars and some you might have to scoop the product out first onto another surface for that reason, or if like me, you use a volcanic clay mask, the product bends the silicone a bit if you try to scoop it from the jar since the clay is thick and the silicone is flimsy. BUT, the good news is they won’t break from bending AND they are really easy to clean and wipe off!! Adore these and am definitely never going back to brushes that have fibers.” —Amazon Customer

Acure Brightening Facial Scrub that’ll help brighten complexion, get rid of unwanted dirt and oil, and nourish the skin. Plus, it’s vegan!


amazon.com

This stuff is sulfate-, paraben-, cruelty-, nonylphenol ethoxylate-, and propylparaben-free!

Promising review: “Who’d have thought you could get excited about a facial scrub? I love this stuff! The ingredients are natural — nothing synthetic! It doesn’t dry out my skin, and my cheeks are always baby soft after using it. This is my third time ordering this tube of green scrubbing greatness!” —BBQ222

A nail and cuticle care solution for making your nails look fresh and healthy — just apply a coat and let it wow you!


amazon.com

Promising review: “Omg this is the real deal. I applied it to my nails and cuticles. It worked and now my awful cuticles are gone. Before they looked dry and no matter what I did, lotion several times a day, it didn’t work. But with one application of this oil and my nails look so fresh, clean, and not flaky at all!! Love!!” —W. Mills

A roll of reusable bamboo towels that are environmentally-friendly AND will save you money in the long-run!


Amazon

These are machine washable (recommended to use a delicates laundry bag), although for longer shelf life, it’s best to hand wash and air dry. They can be reused up to 120 times (maybe a little more). And hey, did you know that one roll of these bamboo towels replaces 60 conventional paper towel rolls? Not only is that saving the environment, but that is saving a nice chunk of cash money in your wallet. Margaritas on you, I guess?

Promising review: “I love this. These are great for those times you need a paper towel but don’t want to create all the waste to throw it out. They’re definitely a lot thicker than a normal paper towel, but function just as well for being easy to crumple up or soak up liquid. I’ve found these especially helpful for tasks that used to waste a lot of paper towels because towels didn’t work for it: like cleaning the litter box, cleaning the bathroom, placing in the microwave to catch spills, cleaning up pet messes, and so on. I’ve already run some of them through the wash probably five to seven times and they remain just as useful as before.” —Caz

Schick Silk touch-up tools you can use for painless, precise eyebrow shaping, cleaning up peach fuzz hairs on your face, and even use to clear away dead skin. These little guys go a long way.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I regularly used the Tinkle facial razors which I thought worked well, but I just used one of these razors for the first time yesterday and OMG the amount of peach fuzz and to my surprise dead skin that came off was shocking and oh-so-satisfying. I will definitely be stocking up.” —I & S. Stark

It’s recommended to change the spikes every 30 days during the spring and summer months!

Promising review: “I have several houseplants that had stopped flowering, so I put a few of these spikes in the pot (there are directions on the back of package for quantity), and approximately a month after using these spikes, my peace lily had three flowers on it, and my African violets plants all got several blooms on them! This worked wonders for my plants that don’t flower also! I noticed that my ivy and cactus plants started growing faster, and they became more green and healthy looking. I am very happy with this product, and I will buy it again.” —Elizabeth

A brown sugar bear you just soak in water for 20 minutes and then place in brown sugar to help it soften. We don’t wanna see you have to chuck your hardened brown sugar just because you haven’t used it in a while.


Amazon

Promising review: “After multiple containers for my brown sugar and continuously throwing my brown sugar away due to giant hard lumps, I began to wonder why our brown sugar never lumped as a child. That’s when I remembered a weird brown bear in our sugar, After a quick Google search I found this! I soaked it in water for 30 minutes and then added to my lumpy brown sugar…two days later there is not a single lump in my sugar! Yay!” —Sneezeloaf

An internet address and password logbook to help keep track of your important login info for social media, online banking, school portals, and more. Sorry but yourname123 isn’t a good password, no matter how easy it is to remember.


amazon.com

Promising review: “When we have so many internet addresses and passwords to remember, it gets really hard — especially when you get older and have trouble remembering what silly password you gave something. And, we are supposed to change or update passwords from time to time, so this is a great tool to help us do that. It certainly makes more sense than scribbling on a random piece of paper on your desk and then misplacing it. The trick, however, is to not misplace the book! I HIGHLY recommend this!!” —Carole P

Water bottle cleaning tablets for when the inside of your drinking vessel starts looking too rusty and makes you wonder if quenching your thirst with this thing would even be… safe?


amazon.com

Tablets are biodegradable, chlorine-free, all-natural, and environmentally safe. They’re individually packaged, and don’t require any additional brushing or scrubbing. Good for use on stainless steel bottles, mugs, hydration reservoirs, coolers, dishes, and hard-to-clean plastic containers and bottles.

Promising review: “I seriously can’t believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. A bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn’t put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING.” —Amazon Customer

Divider sticky notes to make the task of writing down important lessons and assignments in class or work simple for even the messiest of note-takers.


Amazon

These dividers use water-based, not chemical-based adhesive.

Promising review: “These babies are pretty sturdy and they make putting notes in a book, planner, magazine, or whatever, a complete breeze. I really like the ease of these and if you are creative you can make these work for any project. I use them in my textbooks to summarize my notes on a chapter. I also have short-term memory loss after a car accident, and I like reading novels, but can’t remember things, so I use one of these as a bookmark, and take a few minutes to jot down key things from the book. I really, really, really like these and I am glad they exist.” —Delaney

Slow cooker liners so you can line your slow cooker with one of these babies before putting in your ingredients to make clean-up super fast and simple.


amazon.com, amazon.com

These liners are BPA-free, safe with high temps., and are FDA-compliant. These fit 3–8 quart round or oval slow cookers. They also work well for keeping your cheesecakes dry in a water bath.

Promising review: “I just purchased a slow cooker, so I ordered these liners. Man, am I glad I did! I used one to cook a whole chicken and then filled it with water to make stock once we finished eating the chicken. The liner held up to making the stock, water to the near top of the cooker, for 15 hours. Once I dipped the stock and bones out of it, all I had to do was gather the liner together at the top and throw it away. The cooker was spotless!! I had also cooked the chicken for eight hours. So, the liner held up for 23 hours of cooking without ripping at all. I am very pleased and will use them every time I use my slow cooker.” —Linda Williams

A silicone drain protector to catch hair before it even has the chance to clog your drains. This means not having to call a plumber, not having to take off work to wait for the plumber to arrive at your place, not having to spend half your paycheck on the plumber fixing your clogged drains… I think you get the point.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “After tossing away quite a few cheapo drain protectors that became dingy over time no matter how I soaked and scrubbed them, I decided to splurge on this OXO silicone drain protector. I’ve been very impressed! It’s tall enough to fit easily over my pop-up drain and (even without suction cups) the weighted top keeps it in place. I have medium-length hair and seem to shed almost as much as my cat, but the drain protector catches it all and is easily removed and tossed away. Best of all, in my case, the silicone hasn’t held onto mildew or mold — I have been able to spray and wipe away any grime with very little effort. It looks like this drain protector will last a very long time. This has been a very worthy purchase for the few dollars more!” —Suneimi

A clean/dirty dishwasher magnet so you can stop playing that annoying game of “is this glass in the dishwasher wet because it was just run through a wash cycle or because someone just drank from it?”


amazon.com

Promising review: “My kid always used to ask, ‘MOM ARE THESE CLEAN OR DIRTY DISHES?’ Now, I don’t have to answer the same question over and over again. Thank you! It works great. I just stick it to the dishwasher and turn it so they know if the dishes are clean or dirty. I’ve had this for five or more years now. I love it.” —Brighteyez

A suede brush cleaner to stop you from having to pay absurd amounts of $$ to the shoemaker after every few wears of your blue suede shoes… or whatever color your shoes are.


amazon.com

Good for cleaning boots, shoes, coats, jackets, furniture, dance shoes, and sneakers, and is compatible with sprays, foams, eraser, and cleaning kits.

Promising review: “BUY THIS THING! I got mud on my new suede boots and thought they were ruined, but this brush completely restored them. I was shocked. I even used it on an old pair of boots from college that I have considered ruined for several years now, and it did wonders on getting rid of the filth on top of the suede. This is absolutely worth getting!” —Gaby Scott

Promising review: “I fell in love with this product some 15 years ago and I am so very happy that it’s still available in the same wonderful formula as ever. It has a fantastic citrus scent. This takes care of any stain so fast and efficiently, it’s become a party trick. I have seriously poured red wine over a white comforter to demonstrate how great it is to a friend once. It is a miracle in a bottle! We use it for all sorts of cleaning on materials around the house, and one bottle has lasted us years! This is definitely a product every home should have.” —Melanie Nolen

Bed sheet clips to ensure your sheets actually stay in place, no matter how all over the place you are in your sleep.


Amazon

Promising review: “My husband turns a lot in his sleep and has always woken up with the fitted sheet halfway off his side of the bed. Bought these and we have NEVER once had to adjust the sheet in the morning! These are amazing! A tip for putting them on: lay the fitted sheet on top of the bed with the corners inside out (flipped up, off the mattress). Then attach these bands to each of the corners and tighten the bands. Once they are all clamped and tightened, THEN flip the corners onto the mattress. We have a pillow top 10″ thick king mattress and this is the best method to get these on. Hope that helps!” —LindseyB

Blind spot mirrors so you can spend less time perfecting your parallel park and more time getting out of your car and doing the darn thing you came TO DO.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I bought these for mine and my mom’s car a while back ago and these little things are great. Since I got my license I’ve hated merging or switching lanes; I never felt good or safe doing it. Since having these its been a blessing, I feel less like a scared new driver. I’m currently encouraging my sister and friends to invest in these too! These are also great for backing up, because you can see exactly how close you are to hitting the car behind, and it’s helpful when I parallel park in the city.” —Mariam Abass

Promising review: “This pill box is exactly what I was looking for. I take several medications a day and this helps keep me organized and makes it very easy to see whether I remembered to take them or not. I also love that if I go away for a weekend, it is very convenient to take the pill boxes for the days that you will be gone.” —Tabatha Cumer

An all-natural dry shampoo that’s scented with lavender oil, so we won’t tell anyone it’s been days upon days since you last washed your hair, if you don’t. Deal?


amazon.com

This is vegan, cruelty-free, and eco-friendly. It doesn’t contain talc, parabens, baking soda, phtalates, or aerosol. To use, lightly dispense the powder from the bottle onto your hair roots and gently rub in using a clean brush or clean fingers, let it sit, and then do it again.

Promising review: “It makes my bangs and roots look fresh again. And I love that this is a powder and not a stinky aerosol spray. That also means that this lasts MUCH longer. I use it every other day when I don’t wash my hair since I have very oily roots. I’ve been using it for almost a month and barely any is missing out of the bottle. A little goes a long way.” —Rachel G.

A tongue scraper so you can not only help reduce the bad breath tied with having gunk on your tongue, but also to ensure your selfie game is yuck-free, and really, which is more important? (OK fine, it’s the bad breath.)


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “It’s hard to review this product without grossing people out but I think the truth needs to get out. There is some nasty stuff on your tongue that a toothbrush cannot remove, especially in the back. This thing allows you to remove it easily without gagging yourself by trying to shove a toothbrush down your throat. I was definitely surprised the first time I used it how much material I removed, and yes that stuff smells bad. After that first time I couldn’t get anywhere near as much off of my tongue which tells me that the material had been there a while. My breath is noticeably better now. This is a very simple tool and it cleans up well since it’s just a piece of stainless steel and rubber handles.” —Amazon Customer
