Mr. Brooman Will Solve All Your Broom Storage Problems
via: AmazonYou typically use your broom and dustpan at the same time, so it only makes sense to store them together, right? Mr. Brooman can help you do that. It...or he...is a little gadget that clips right onto your broom handle. One arm extends out to so you can hang up your dustpan, and his collar features a hole so you can hang the whole contraption up on a wall hook!
This Utensil Holder Will Keep a Spoon Handy
via: AmazonRather than grabbing a new spoon to scoop out your sugar every single time, why not just clip a spoon right to the jar? It can be done, assuming you have something like this utensil holder handy. Simply stretch the band around your container of sugar, coffee, or pretty much anything else, then clip your desired utensil in the little fella's arms!
These Towel Hooks Will Never Drop Your Towel
via: AmazonI don't know if the problem is with my towel or the towel hook, but I feel like the bathroom towel is on the floor pretty much every time I walk into the room. These hooks would solve that in a jiffy. Just attach the hooks to the wall, and when it comes time to "hang up" your towel, simply push the fabric into the silicone jaws and walk away without another glance!
This Teabag Squeezer Is a Must for Tea Drinkers
via: AmazonI think we've all burned our fingers on hot teabags more often than we'd probably like to admit. Rather than sacrificing your fingers or trying to do that nifty wrap-around-the-spoon trick, these teabag tongs make squeezing your teabag 100 percent easier. There are holes in one side of the tongs which let the tea run out freely, while the other side is completely solid for optimal squeezing.
The Sprinkle Spout Turns Any Jug into a Watering Can!
via: AmazonSimply twist the Sprinkle Spout onto a jug and voila! Instant sprinkling watering can. This is great for people who have plants and are looking for a good way to reuse all the plastic containers in their life. It would also be a great gift for kids! Who doesn't like playing with sprinklers? When you remove the daisy head, the spout becomes a funnel, too!
Your Dentist Would Love if You Used This Portable Water Flosser
via: AmazonRather than lying to your dentist about whether you've been flossing, why not do something a little crazy and actually floss? Weird, I know, but people swear by it! If you don't want to get tangled up with dental floss, a water flosser is another great option. This one is totally portable, which makes it ideal for people who travel (and people who just want their water flosser to take up less counter space).
This Tongue Scraper Makes Bad Breath a Thing of the Past
via: AmazonYou can brush your teeth all you want (and you should!), but your tongue is actually a main source of bacteria that causes bad breath. Using your toothbrush on your tongue is a good start, but if you really wanna get that stinky gunk out of your mouth, you should opt for a tonge scraper like this one. With just a few scrapes, your tongue will be clean and your breath will be fresh!
These Laundry Sheets Are Kind of Miraculous
via: AmazonI'm guessing you probably have separate containers of laundry detergent, fabric softener, and stain remover in your laundry room. That's pretty normal — but it doesn't have to be that way! These laundry sheets are an all-in-one deal — toss one into the washer with your dirty clothes, and that's it! The sheet acts as a detergent, stain remover, fabric softener, whitener, and anti-static. No big deal. Just a miracle of science, basically.
Speaking of Overachieving Products, This Apple Peeler Also Slices and Cores
via: AmazonWe're nearing the holiday season, and you know what that means: Lots of apple dishes! Apple pie, apple crisp, apple cider! It also means you're probably going to be peeling a bunch of apples. This little gadget makes the whole process much faster. Just secure an apple to the fork and start cranking the handle. In a matter of seconds, your apple will be sliced, peeled, cored, and ready for your dish.
The HÄNS Swipe Is the Cleaning Product for the Modern Age
via: AmazonThis little doodad has two sides: the cleaning side and the polish side. To start, swipe the cleaning side over your smartphone screen (or your tablet or computer monitor). The specially formulated cleaning solution will instantly begin cutting through the dirt and grime. Then, flip the HÄNS over and swipe the screen with the polish side to remove fingerprints and leave the clean, shiny surface behind.
This Ice Cream Scoop Heats Up!
via: AmazonIsn't it just the worst when you go to eat some ice cream and instead find a rock-solid block of ice cream that is nowhere near being ready to scoop? Rather than waiting for the ice block to thaw (or getting risky with the microwave), you can use this ice cream scoop to serve up the tasty treat. It heats up without the use of any batteries or electricity! Instead, it's filled with biodegradable liquid that transfers heat from your hand on the handle into the scoop itself!
This Dog Umbrella Will Protect Fido from the Rain
via: AmazonLook, dogs are great! But some of them may require a little bit of special treatment when it comes to walking around in inclement weather. If your pup hates the rain or snow (or you just want to provide a little extra protection from the elements), this dog umbrella might be just the thing. It connects directly to your dog's collar with a built-in leash and keeps them protected from whatever Mother Nature is throwin' down.
This Pasta Measurer Will Take the Guesswork out of Dinner
via: AmazonI don’t know why, but the average human finds it pretty much impossible to measure the correct amount of pasta for a meal. Every time I make pasta, I waffle back and forth between cooking up a small handful (and running the risk that it’s not enough) and dumping the entire box in (which is obviously way too much). This device helps you measure exactly how much pasta you need to cook depending on your needs
This Boiled Egg Peeler Works Like a Charm
via: AmazonCooking a hard-boiled egg is actually pretty easy. It's just peeling them that takes forever and always results in eggs with ugly divots taken out of them. This handy gadget peels hard-boiled eggs in seconds. All you have to do is plop an egg in, close the lid, and shake the whole thing like a Polaroid picture. Take off the lid and you'll have an egg that easily slips out of its shell!
This LED Light Is Completely Solar-Powered
via: AmazonA single charge lasts for up to six hours! Take this inflatable light with you to music festivals, pool parties, on a camping trip, or anywhere else where you just need a little extra light. It glows in eight different vibrant hues and also features a nifty color-cycling mode if you just can't make up your mind. It's totally collapsible and weighs only slightly more than 4 ounces.
This Slim Storage Cart Maximizes Your Storage Space
via: AmazonAs someone who currently has one of these shelves in their laundry room, I can vouch for it wholeheartedly! The storage cart arrives disassembled but goes together in about 30 seconds. After that, just roll the cart into the narrow space between your laundry machine and the wall, or your fridge and the wall, or any other tiny area, and get ready to get super organized!
This Dish Riser Is Another Great Way to Maximize Space
via: AmazonI spent a long time taking all of my small plates out in order to grab a larger plate before I realized a dish riser like this one could totally solve that problem. Store your larger dishes underneath and the smaller ones up top, or use the riser as a shelf for your mugs! You could also keep it out on your counter and use it for extra storage there.
These Wine Chill Drops Quickly Chill Your Wine!
via: AmazonNow you can get the most out of the wines you by without having to wait hours for them to chill! Just keep these wine chiller drops in your freezer and remove them whenever it's time to pour the wine. Insert a chiller drop into a glass of wine and it will cool the entire glass very quickly — a glass of red wine will be ready to drink in about 90 seconds, whereas white wine (which is served colder) will be good to go in 8 minutes or so. Remove the chiller drop, place it in the special holder, and enjoy your wine!
This Phone Case Is Also a Wallet
via: AmazonNo matter where you go, you probably have your phone with you, but plenty of people don't feel like bringing a purse with them every time they leave the house (I know I don't! Who wants to lug around an entire purse when you're just going to grab a coffee?). This phone case not only protects your phone; it can also comfortably store three cards and some cash. There's also a wrist strap that will keep your phone secure.
This Wallet Comb Is Great for On-the-Go Grooming
via: AmazonIt's made from durable stainless steel and fits in pretty much any standard wallet. You definitely don't want to be caught needing a comb — why not carry one with you wherever you go? You can even get it laser etched with your name so nobody tries to swipe your cool comb. Use it to straighten your hair, or your beard and/or mustache!
You Need This Can Cooler for Your Next Party
via: AmazonImagine it: You want to bring some drinks with you somewhere — either to a party, a picnic, camping, or to the beach — but you don't feel like lugging an entire cooler around and messing with ice and all that jazz. You don't need to! This can cooler holds four canned beverages and insulated, meaning they'll stay nice and chilled until you get to your destination. The handy strap lets you carry them hands-free!
Chill Your Beverages in a Flash with a HyperChiller
via: AmazonIf you like iced coffee, then I think the HyperChiller is an absolute must. You can pour hot coffee straight into it and it will chill it — in one minute! — without any dilution. I mean, it’s a no-brainer. You can also use the HyperChiller to chill wine, tea, whiskey…basically anything that is hot, but which you would like to be cold. It’s also dishwasher safe, so even cleanup is a total breeze.
The Rite in the Rain Pen Lets You Write in the Rain
via: Amazon(You probably could have put that one together on your own.) This incredible pen is pretty much from the future. It can write through water, grease, or mud without clumping or smearing. The pressurized all-weather cartridge also works in temps from -30ºF to 250º F, and even under water. I don't know how intense you need your pens to be, but I think this pen pretty much has you covered.
Use This Keychain to Charge Your Phone
via: AmazonIf there's one thing we can all agree on in this modern era, it is this: You can never have too many charger cables at your disposal. This one is also a keychain, so no matter where you take your keys, you'll also have the ability to charge up your phone. This particular listing is for a micro-USB cable which can be used for most Android devices. The durable braided cable is guaranteed to last a long time, too.
Make Some Fancy Drinks with This Coctail Layering Tool
via: AmazonAnyone can shake a martini, but creating a layered drink? That takes some serious skill. Luckily for the amateur mixologist, it takes slightly less skill (but is still equally impressive!) if you have one of these tools in your arsenal. Just pour slowly into the funnel and the liquid will be guided to the side of the glass and rest gently on top of your former layer. Pretty neat, huh?
These Toaster Bags Are Great for Chefs on the Go
via: AmazonProblem: You want a grilled cheese but don’t want to dirty up a pan. Solution: These toaster bags. Simply add your buttered bread and cheese to the bag and pop the whole thing down in your toaster. In a matter of minutes, bam! Grilled cheese! Or toasted cheese, I guess. Hot bread and hot cheese that you can eat. You get it.
The Freezer Cube Will Restore Order to Your Fridge
via: AmazonIf you like to prep meals in advance, then you've probably run into the issue of not having enough space for all your food in the freezer. Actually, let's face it: we've all run out of freezer space, regardless of whether we're meal preppers. The Freezer Cube can be placed on a shelf in your freezer. It provides you with a bunch of smaller shelves which just happen to be the perfect size for holding freezer bags!
This Bacon Microwave Cooker Is a Dream Come True
via: AmazonPretty much everyone loves bacon. But pretty much everyone dreads cooking it...until now. The Presto Bacon Microwave Cooker fully cooks 12 pieces of bacon to perfection in just minutes, and without splatters of oil getting all over your stovetop! The whole thing is fully immersible and dishwasher safe, so even cleaning up after your bacon time is easy.
This Boil Over Guard Also Keeps Your Counter Tidy
via: AmazonThis silicone pot lid is designed to prevent water from boiling over — and who couldn't use that? It fits any pan from 6 to 10 inches in diameter. It makes it easy to set your boiling pot on the stovetop and not have to hover it the entire time you're cooking. It remains completely cool to the touch during use and it's dishwasher safe!
Everybody Needs a Squeegee
via: AmazonI actually recommend getting at least two — you can keep one in your car and one in the shower! Use them to easily remove condensation and keep everything clean without leaving any streaks behind. This one has a suction cup on the back so you can store it on a flat surface and just pop it off whenever you need it. And it has a fun li’l guy as the handle. What’s not to love?
You Should Definitely Have a Countertop Squeegee, Too
via: AmazonThis double-sided squeegee is pretty darn genius. The flat side is ideal for scraping messes directly into your kitchen or bathroom sink, and the silicone bristles on the other side are perfect for scrubbing. The entire tool is flexible enough to get into tight corners and small areas that may need some extra attention while you're cleaning, like around your faucet or in the corner between your countertop and backsplash. Toss it in the dishwasher whenever it needs a refresh!
