Organize your pantry like a pro with these durable, stackable, BPA-free containers. The set includes one tall, two medium, two small and two mini containers and lids, plus two dozen reusable labels. 

$23 at Amazon

Pro organizers will tell you that the key to a happy pantry (or craft room, etc.) is to swap out all those ugly cardboard boxes for clear containers so that you know exactly what you have. This seven-piece set, complete with reusable labels, does just that — plus the easy-lock lids ensure maximum freshness. 22,000 five-star reviewers rank them as perfection.

This five-star reviewer gets it: "My pantry finally looks organized. The containers are heavy-duty and seal very well. ... I recommend these multipurpose containers to anyone who wants to bring some calm to their chaos, whether it’s food, craft supplies or anything you need to securely store."

This 100% bentonite clay mask works magic on acne and can also be used as a bath or foot soak, or as a treatment for bug bites.

$23 at Amazon

Whether you're plagued by the occasional blemish or have some stubborn blackheads that just won't go away, this single-ingredient clay just might be the solution. The tub comes with a pound of 100% natural calcium bentonite clay, which you can use as a spot treatment, face mask, foot soak or even a hair detox. All you need to do is mix it with water or apple cider vinegar, then apply the paste and leave on for up to ten minutes.

"This is by far my favorite mask!" shared one of over 72,000 five-star fans. "It is multi-purpose too. Not only for face, but you can use it to detoxify your armpits too (this helps make your deodorant work better). I bought a small co trainer years ago and loved it, so I had to get the bigger one and I have no regrets!!"

Having a small stool beside your toilet to prop your feet up on when it's time to go is a touch unconventional, but the Squatty Potty has a pretty impressive fan base that praises it. 

$25 at Amazon

The ergonomic stool fits around the base of the toilet and puts you in the proper position for your colon to do its thing. If you're skeptical, over 39,000 five-star reviewers will tell you just how well this thing works.

"Poop like a champ!" gushed a five-star fan. "Seriously though. The hype is real. This thing really works. I've even purchased one for each of my children. And they love it too! It's amazing how easier it is to have a bowel movement when your legs and pelvic area are positionally placed to do so with ease. No straining. Really. NO STRAINING."

This lemon-yellow putty satisfyingly grabs the dirt right out of keyboards, air vents, speakers and more.

$7 at Amazon

Yellow putty might seem like a strange way to clean tough-to-reach dirt and grime, but once you try ColorCoral Universal Dust Cleaner for yourself, you'll become a believer. The product is made with a biodegradable gel that's sticky enough to pick up dirt in small spaces. All you have to do is roll the gel over the area you want to clean, give it a second to pick up the muck, then peel it off the surface and watch as the hard-to-reach dirt comes free. Gross, but also amazing.

"This product is perfect for getting into the nooks and crannies of your car," one of over 31,000 fans said. "Food crumbs from the toddlers in your cup holders and car door pockets? No problem, this product will engulf all the tiny, impossible-to-get to crumbs like a tiny, hungry, slime pet. The edges and corners of those cup holders and areas between the seat and console? It’s got you covered there too. Recommend the product without any reservation."

Frothy lattes and cappuccinos are just one button away. This little guy has brightened the mornings of over 161,000 rave reviewers.

It makes just about any drink creamier in seconds, and it's so easy to use. Plus, it comes in a ton of different colors, so you can get one to match your coffeemaker or the rest of your small appliances. You can even use it for tea and honey!

"This little thing is fantastic!!" shared a shopper. "Even the hubby commented how much he likes it. We use it to blend protein powder, creamer, fiber products in our beverages. Just run the blending end under water to clean. Sits nice and handy on the counter for easy use. Just buy it, you need it!!"

Easy to install, the Eudele Adhesive Shower Caddy kit comes with five different caddies for different purposes. Got big bottles of shampoo? There's a caddy for that. Got a bar of soap?

"I love everything about this set!!" shared an enthusiastic shopper. "I was tired of knocking over all the body care items I had in the shower and this solved the problem. Now everything is contained nicely and doesn’t look cluttered, might I add it was easy to put up and very sturdy."

This is the only shower curtain liner you'll ever need. Its weighted bottom helps keep it firmly in place and the spray from the shower inside, instead of on your bathroom floor.

$12 at Amazon

At first glance, this shower curtain liner might not look like much. Don't be fooled — the Liba liner is the crème de la crème of bathroom necessities. For starters, it's two and a half times thicker than other liners, plus it doesn't accumulate soap scum. It doesn't smell funky — unlike some other liners — and it's completely waterproof, so it dries instantly.

"We have hard water, and it's hard for anything to last too long before getting gross," one shopper shared. "This one seems repel water enough to not need replacement every few weeks. It can last months before full of hard water stains. Not too bad. Decent thickness so it doesn't rip, but not to thick it doesn't flex. I've bought a few times."

Enjoy a healthy and delicious breakfast for two without the worry of an egg-flipping disaster. Even better? The nonstick surface cleans easily in seconds with a damp cloth or paper towel.

$19 at Amazon

Achieving omelet perfection can be difficult, especially when it comes to flipping and folding. That's where the nonstick Holstein Housewares omelet maker comes in. It makes two beautiful omelets at once, no flipping required. You can also use it to make frittatas, pizza pockets, apple turnovers or whatever other delicious pocket-shaped food your heart desires.

"This lil machine was perfect," one of 12,000 pleased reviewers shared. "I used 2 eggs for each side scrambled my eggs really good poured them and then added my ingredients.. if you add mix ingredients in egg mix you will need 1 egg and a half. after around 5 minutes I took a knife and poked two small holes in both..They were the perfect omelets ... and did I mention I forgot to spray before I poured my eggs and they still did not stick.."

Forget calling the plumber. This handy rubber strainer traps all the hair that could clog your drain and cleans easily.

$13 at Amazon

Have you heard of the TubShroom and its mighty ability to catch all the hair in your shower drain before it even thinks of clogging? If not, you will be amazed by this mini gadget that fits snuggly inside your drain to catch hair. When it comes time to clean it out, just wipe it off, throw away the unwanted hair and place it back in your drain. Sorry plumbers of the world, but we no longer need your services.

This fan raved, "So my landlord used to have to come at least once a year and snake my bathtub... I had the traditional little strainer in the drain and the plastic pull-hair-out thingy.. bout 2 years ago.. and have bought one for every member of the family and a few friends... The landlord loves me he hasn't snaked in 2 years ... I threw the plastic thingy in the recycling.. and no harsh drain clog remover has been used since!!!"

This is a simple gadget — it has an on/off switch and a plug — and keeps your beverage heated from the first sip to the last.

$20 at Amazon

The Mr. Coffee Mug Warmer is an easygoing little guy, with only an on/off switch and an indicator light telling you when your drink is hot — it takes less than two minutes to do its thing. It has a nice, long cord, easily wipes clean and is tiny enough to fit in a carry-on. And now that the weather is starting to cool down, your coffee doesn't have to!

"Keeps drinks warm for hours," reported one of 34,000 five-star fans. "It is amazing (and sad) how quickly a hot drink cools. My husband loves this cup warmer as it allows his coffee (he is a slow drinker) to remain warm for hours. He liked it so much he gifted a few to the technicians and nurses at his dialysis center."
