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 a 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, 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
Comes with six tablets! These are safe to use with front-load washing machines and top-load washing machines, and both high efficiency and conventional machines. Recommended to use once a month!
Promising review: “I have been using bleach to clean my machine for some time, but decided to give this a try a few months ago. My very first clean with Affresh left me surprised and delighted, for not only did it clean my machine, it eliminated the nasty smell that always transferred to my clothes thanks to a build-up of mold I didn’t even know about. Every month now, I toss a tablet into the drum and let it work its magic. Now, my machine is cleaner than ever, and my clothes always smell wonderfully fresh. I highly recommend this to everyone.” —Kelli Crawford
Promising review: “I’m obsessed! This thing works small miracles: I cleaned about half of my bathroom’s grout to its original sparkling-clean cream color in 40 minutes, and it took honestly no effort at all. And — as if easy, sparkling grout wasn’t enough! — it busted through some serious soap-scum buildup in my bathtub (thanks, fancy soap and slow-draining tub) in less than a minute.
Honestly, when I first tried the scrubber out, I didn’t see too many uses for it other than for grout. But after owning it for a while, I’ve realized that while I don’t need it every single week, it’s priceless for the occasions I encounter tough gunk that I’d otherwise only conquer with excessive patience and elbow grease.” —Natalie Brown, BuzzFeed Editor
Promising review: “I have super fine hair with lots of breakage. No matter how I put my hair up I have bad flyaways. This stuff is great! So easy and it stays better and looks smoother than stiff hair spray.” —Jill Stilfield
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
Promising review: “I’m a nursing student and have to wear my hair in a bun every day. I’ve tried all the bun makers, watched YouTube videos, and spend way too much time on getting my hair into a bun. I was able to make a pretty bun that was secure in under 30 seconds. I thought it was a fluke so I did it again, and then again. I just ordered two more packs because I know if I lose one of these, I’d have to tear the house down looking for it. I have hair to my mid-back, and three of these worked perfectly for me. If I can get my hair in bun in under 30 seconds, trust me…anyone can.” —Tina
Features a 6-quart capacity fryer basket, and an auto-shutoff function to prevent overcooking. All nonelectric parts are dishwasher-safe!
Promising review: “I was very glad to join the air fry bandwagon with this Dash Air Fryer. I have mostly used it for frozen foods such as egg rolls, chicken tenders, and fish fillets so far. I use parchment paper to help with the cleanup. In some cases it comes out better with no oil at all. Definitely a more nutritious cooking alternative!” —Michael from San Diego
Promising review: “I absolutely LOVE this mascara. I have very sensitive eyes and am highly devoted to my trusted brands. When a friend suggested this mascara I was curious, as she loved it. For the price point and how good it looked on her eyes, I thought why not. Holy moly. I’m in love. It makes my lashes longer, — looks like I’m natural but better — and has a thinner formula so it looks like I have a billion gorgeous lashes, and looks the same all day long. I cannot recommend this enough. It doesn’t rub during the day and give me that black eye look. It’s wonderful. Must buy. —Katherine Ochsman
All you have to do is put one of these babies in like you would with any other K-Cup, brew one large cycle, watch dirty water get cleaned out, throw the pod away, and then return to brewing your favs.
Promising review: “We’ve had our Keurig for a few years, and with the exception of using only filtered water and dispensing hot water every so often, we’ve never cleaned the needle or K-Cup area. I used three cleaning cups back to back and WOW our machine was dirty! I’m so happy I purchased these! I’ll be keeping up on cleaning these more often.” —Heather Garcia
It can prepare food up to 70% faster than other methods. It can keep food warm automatically for up to 10 hours, and there are three temperatures for sautéing and slow-cooking. The inner cooking pot, lid, and steam-rack are dishwasher-safe! Check out our write-up about the incredible Instant Pot!
Promising review: “This is quite possibly the coolest, most versatile kitchen gadget I’ve ever owned. I love it so much that I’ve purchased two more for friends and relatives. What can it do? I think the real question is ‘What can’t it do?’ I truly believe you could replace every cooking appliance (including your oven and stove top) and do EVERYTHING in the Instant Pot. I purchased two sizes for my own use: the three-quart (which is my almost-every-day workhorse for two person dishes) and the eight-quart (which I bring out to handle my dinner party dishes). Everything I’ve tried has been fabulous. In the realm of kitchen appliances, there is no better investment than the Instant Pot. Highly recommended!!!” —Stereoman
Promising review: “These shorts come in a bazillion rotating colors because they sell out so quickly you might blink and miss them. I own a pair in pink (that is me being v cheeky above) and can confirm that they are so comfortable that I genuinely had to look down and make sure I wasn’t naked a few times, but still opaque enough to venture out into the world without worrying about everyone seeing your booty. I probably own 10 pairs of bike shorts now (don’t look at me), and these are the comfiest by far.” —Emma Lord, BuzzFeed Editor
Promising review: “Always trying to find ways to live more sustainably and with less waste. Blueland is a perfect way to do that with re-using the same bottles and you can re-up whenever you need to. I ended up purchasing another foaming hand soap bottle for the bathroom — I would order extra of the hand soap tablets because it does go pretty quick compared to the rest.” —Cait F.
Indulgence Spa and Body Products is a Black woman-owned bath and body brand that sells an array of handcrafted soaps, lotions, hair care products, skin care products, and shower goodies that are vegan and free of yucky chemicals. Be sure to check out everything they have to offer here!
Promising review: “A+++++ for customer service and product quality!! She was prompt, polite, and even fulfilled a request for something not already available in her shop. It arrived beautifully packaged, smells incredible, and is lovely to use.” —Taryntula15
Get it from Indulgence Spa and Body Products on Etsy for $5 (available in various scents).
Promising review: “I’d heard a TON of great things about the hot air brush but admittedly didn’t fully believe it until I got one for myself. I was thrilled to have a dramatically short bob until I remembered just how hard they are to style. I’m nearly useless with a round brush and hairdryer. The hot air brush combines two unwieldy tools into one light, easy-to-manage one that’s simple to use and greatly cuts down on my morning styling time. I recommend letting your hair air dry most of the way before finishing with this. Even a pass over dry hair helps get my bedhead into shape. Amazing. I have short hair and the 1-inch version is perfect.” —Rachel Dunkel, BuzzFeed Editor
Promising review: “I bought this product because wearing a face mask makes my glasses fog, even with the metal strip to form around the bridge of my nose. It works all day with only one application, unless I have been doing a lot of activity, then I might have to re-apply. Just spray it on the clean lenses of your glasses then wipe dry with a clean dry lintless cloth, as simple as that. I was so impressed that I gave my second bottle to my team members for them to use. Delivery was fast. I highly recommend this product from this company. I would not hesitate to buy this again when I need more in the future.” —Tonya Crippen
What you’ll get: Your first box comes with a handle in a pretty color of your choice, a magic magnetic holder, and two blades. Depending on how often you shave, they’ll send your four refill blades every month, two months, or three months. Also! Their shaving cream is not to be overlooked and can be added to your order for $8. It’ll leave skin feeling extra smooth and you only need to use a nickel-sized amount! Eight BuzzFeed Shopping Editors tried out Billie and all of them LOVED it — be sure to check out our full review of the incredible Billie razor subscription!
“So I recently gave in to see what the Billie hype was all about — as someone who was perfectly content buying a pack of multiple razors for about the same price, my expectations were’t super high when it came to Billie, but I knew so many of my co-workers loved their Billie razors. Well, after a month, I am here to say, I am a Billie razor fan for life, and I will never turn back. The charcoal soap surrounding the blades really makes for the absolute smoothest shave — like I truly just glides against your skin and doesn’t leave behind nicks or razor bumps. The magnetic holder and the pretty, sturdy handle all make the Billie experience even better. Trust me, it’s worth all the hype and more.” —Sam Wieder (aka, ME!)
Promising review: “There are few beauty products out there that I consistently go back to, which says a lot because I love everything that has to do with makeup. But alas, here I am, consistently finding my way back to Maybelline’s Instant Age Rewind Concealer. It’s just *THAT* good! I still don’t know how a $7 tube of concealer (I use the Neutralizer shade) beats out the more expensive ones I have stuffed into my vanity, but it does. It’s not too creamy or thick, yet it still gives solid coverage without the cake-y feeling. It blends incredibly well with every foundation I wear (not at the same time, LOL) — and I have a lot of foundations.
I also really enjoy the sponge applicator. I still go over whatever I apply with a Beauty Blender to get that matte look, but having the sponge makes it easier and means I don’t have to use my fingers to dab under my eyes. When I am done with my entire routine, my eyes look lighter and brighter, but not in a way that’s totally obvious — even when photos are taken and the flash is on. Basically what I am saying here is this is a staple beauty product that, IMHO, deserves a place in every makeup bag! And ya can’t argue with a $7 price tag.” —Kayla Suazo, BuzzFeed Editor
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. I most HIGHLY recommended!” —Jeff R. Clow
This fits most standard box mixes, and has a continuous chamber design so batter can be easily spread. Plus, it features nonstick coating and heavy-gauge cast aluminum construction. It includes a nylon spatula and brownie recipes for inspo.
Promising review: “Because this pan is intended for the ‘brownie-edge lover,’ if you aren’t one, this is not the pan for you. Now if you’re still reading then you must have heard the rumors about this pan. Not being one that makes brownies more than once a month I just couldn’t convince myself to spend over $30 on a pan. Now that I have it I will never go back to a standard pan for brownies. It gives every brownie at least two chewy edges, it’s totally nonstick, and there is no oiling or flouring necessary. Cleanup is easy. A little hot water, soap, rinse, dry, and voilà!” —Cricket
Promising review: “I have this myself, and what a great purchase! This little bb is so easy to use — just pop it on top of the bottle, push the metal sides in so it clamps on, then push the top button several times to vacuum seal and preserve the bubs. Then when you next want a glass, spritz, or mimosa, you’ll hear that same *POP* you heard when first taking out the cork — and the effervescence you so crave will be fully intact. Plus, you can confidently store your leftover bottle on its side in your fridge; I’ve had zero leakage problems with this!” —Maitland Quitmeyer, BuzzFeed Editor
Promising review: “I often forgo breakfast because I feel like I just don’t have enough time to cook in the mornings. But then along came this gadget, and it changed everything. You just pour eggs and any fillings like cheese, veggies, or protein into the egg cooker. Mix it all up and microwave for two minutes. And there you have it, eggs in no time with no mess.” —Hannah Loewentheil, BuzzFeed Editor
This moisturizer contains lady’s mantle (alchemilla vulgaris), known for its skin-nurturing properties, ceramide 3 to help skin retain water, and glycerin to help maintain the skin’s moisture levels. Also, fun fact — this comes in recyclable packaging.
Promising review: “Aqua Bomb moisturizer is easily my desert island skincare product. Although I have dry-leaning combination skin, I hate most moisturizers because creamy formulas feel heavy and just yucky to me, especially under makeup. Aqua Bomb’s gel-like consistency absorbs like a dream. It’s soothing to stressed out skin in the winter and cooling through the heat of summer. I recommend it to friends of all skin types because it gives your skin that bouncy hydration it craves without feeling oily in the slightest. I’ve put it on every night and most mornings for years and have no plans of stopping anytime soon!” —Rachel Dunkel, BuzzFeed Editor
Includes one 2.5-cup container and one 17.3-cup container. Features a CrispTray to help keep moisture away and FreshVent technology to regulate oxygen and carbon dioxide flow. These are dishwasher-safe and BPA-free. Read a BuzzFeeder’s review of these amazing Rubbermaid FreshWorks containers.
Promising review: “I wish I would have gotten these sooner. I bought strawberries for my children, and then I forgot about them. I found them in the back of the refrigerator almost TWO WEEKS later, and they were still good. The real miracle is how long it keeps zucchini. Zucchini starts to get mushy in the crisper drawer after just a few days. Again, these miracle containers have kept it fresh for close to two weeks now. I’ve kept cut lettuce, cut cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, cucumbers, zucchini, sliced bell peppers, strawberries, blackberries, cut jicama, and carrots in these containers. I’ve had fantastic results with all of them.” —Laura
This is a cord-free vacuum! It can run for up to 30 minutes when using a nonmotorized tool. It requires being charged for a minimum of 3.5 hours before first use! Plus, it has a hygienic emptying bin, because we don’t think you should have to touch the yucky stuff you’re suctioning up. It can be quickly transformed into a handheld vacuum! Be sure to check out our write-up of this amazing Dyson vacuum.
Promising review: “I’m a dog-lover and my wife is not. Over the years, she has graciously agreed to have golden retriever with the big downside being the amount of shedding. The hair everywhere drives her nuts. Enter this vacuum: it has revolutionized pet ownership in our household! We have a nice canister vacuum, but it’s heavy, and it’s a hassle to get out. So, that meant we often let dog hair accumulate and didn’t vacuum every day. This vacuum is so lightweight, so simple to use, and so effective at picking up dog hair that we take it down from its handy wall mount and use it a couple times a day. My wife’s stress levels have dropped dramatically! This is a great vacuum and I highly recommend it, especially if you are constantly battling pet hair.” —Ron Watts
Promising review: “I dried my face with a white towel and there was not a speck of makeup left on the towel, and I didn’t have a drop of mascara raccoon-eye look left on my face. This is the cleanest my face has ever been.” —hine0108
Promising review: “Right off the bat, I was impressed by how buttery soft these leggings were. They’re super stretchy (definitely squat-proof!) and supportive without being constricting. And at $68, they’re a total steal given how high-quality they are. I usually wear them for low-impact workouts, like Pilates and yoga (and lounging on the couch), but they didn’t let me down during high-impact HIIT cardio classes either. The material is really breathable so even though I’m sweating a lot during my workouts, the leggings don’t get swampy. They’re machine-washable and still look brand-new (no pilling here!). In fact, I liked them so much that I ended up getting a second pair to give the other ones a break.” —Melanie Aman, BuzzFeed Editor

Get them from Girlfriend Collective for $68 (available in nine colors, three lengths, and sizes 2XS—6XL).
Promising review: “Ever since I started using a microfiber hair towel, I hardly ever use a blow-dryer anymore. When it’s summertime, I’d rather not add extra heat to my hair when it can be avoided, so I’ll wash my hair at night, wrap it in a microfiber towel and let it dry on its own. It helps my curls feel much healthier.” —Kayla Boyd, BuzzFeed Editor
When I tell you that I think this is one of my all-time favorite purchases ever, I’m not EGGagerating…. but really, I’m not. I pretty much use this every single day. Let me start by saying that the pieces themselves were self-explanatory. I opened this when I was VERY hungry and therefore had no patience to read an instruction manual, and found it super quick to figure out what to do.
It can boil up to six eggs at a time. It comes with a little measuring cup with a needle at one end that you simply pierce the larger top of the egg with, place the egg on one of the six slots of the tray with the pierced side facing up, fill the measuring cup to the soft, medium, or hard line depending on your preference, pour the water through center hole, cover the cooker, plug it in, and press the button. It makes a sound in the form of a pretty cute (and TBH, kinda catchy) song when it’s ready, so you don’t have to sit and wait around. This also comes with a poacher tray and an omelet tray that are just as easy to use! I’ve been on a kick with the omelet tray lately, because it’s just a million times better than having to stand over the stove. Be sure to check out our write-up of this awesome egg cooker!
This can either be used on dry skin to help dissolve makeup, or on wet skin to start your day. It’s made of five skin conditioners to help leave your face feeling soft. It’s hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested, ophthalmologist-tested, claims to be good for all skin types, noncomedogenic, cruelty-free, vegan, and soap-, paraben-, and sulfate-free. Check out our review of the amazing Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser (#2).
“I have extremely sensitive skin, and back in fall 2019 I experienced a sudden onset of cystic acne all over my face, went on birth control for it in December, and now six months later, my skin is completely clear and I’m finally wanting to try all of these skincare products I was too scared to use. As someone who was using Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser for YEARS, I was nervous to make the switch to Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser, and full expected I’d try it once and have to retire it.
Quite the opposite actually. This cleanser is truly SO gentle. Rather than leaving my skin feeling hot and irritated like some skincare products do, this leaves my skin with a cooling sensation and I actually really look forward to washing my face in the morning and at night, rather than dread it. I haven’t worn makeup much lately, but the few times I have since buying this cleanser, it’s done an excellent job of removing my makeup, and I can go to sleep with peace of mind that my pores aren’t clogged up.” —Sam Wieder (aka, ME!)
Promising review: “I used to laugh at this kind of product until my friend was using hers. It made it all so easy! Honestly, I can’t believe someone as clumsy as me was functioning without it. Where I used to use a knife and spoon or fork to deal with avocados, it’s now just this one thing. Each part of the tool does its job really well, and it’s easy to clean. Love it so much. Even if you’re not a clever tool kinda person, just get it. It’s worth it.” —kikikitten
I originally bought this for my mom who always gets cold at night when she’s watching TV, and she loves it, but it may or may not have ended up in my room one night, and now belongs to me — oops. I LOVE this thing. It truly is so warm and so perfect for cold winter nights when I wanna reach that level of toasty warm my sweatshirts alone cannot accomplish. Plus, you can do things while wearing it! I mean, how else am I gonna keep the entire length of my arms warm while trying to play The Sims? I know it’s summertime right now, but this is seriously so great to buy now and keep on hand for the moment those chilly temps come along!
Promising review: “This is an amazing product — I’m so glad to have found it! Even my friends love it when I take it out of the freezer! Just fill it up with coffee, stick it in the freezer, and you’ve got iced coffee for later.” —Kayla
It features 18-karat gold-plated heads to contour every curve on your leg. It also has a built-in LED light to make it easy-to-see and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. BTW, this is solely for use on legs, do NOT use under your arms! PS – I’m personally a huge fan of the Finishing Touch eyebrow hair remover. I have extremely sensitive skin, and I was constantly leaving eyebrow waxing appointments with red skin, peeled skin, sometimes my eyelids would literally start bleeding. I couldn’t even keep my eyes open. It makes cleaning up my eyebrows SO easy, and legitimately pain-free. Not even an ounce of pain, no joke. And they also make a tool for general hair removal, that’s good to use in places like your upper lip!
Promising review: “LOVE IT! This is now my favorite hair remover. It’s so easy and comfortable to use, leaving my legs soft and smooth from top to bottom. There was no discomfort or irritation at all. Smoothly gliding around/over ankles, back of the knees, and blind curves. I have found using this is actually a relaxing experience.” —Jez
Promising review: “OMG!!!! This works. I love wine, but have terrible allergies to the histamines, sulfites, and preservatives in wine. I actually use one wand for two glasses of wine. I was very skeptical, but it works like a dream! Thank you PureWine. This is really a breakthrough for me.” —Penny Froh
Promising review: “Very useful! I love that the cup is removable so if you have one of those giant Chick-fil-A ketchup cups, it can sit within the holder without the added cup, but a smaller sauce like from Wendy’s can sit inside the additional cup so it won’t fall through.” —catherine
