1. With these food savers, you can say goodbye to plastic wrap and other disposable food packaging. They feature a “hug” design that fits a variety of fruit and vegetable halves of all sizes. The dishwasher-safe, reusable design saves space in the refrigerator and is made of 100% food-grade silicone.

Not only do they reduce plastic waste, but they also help reduce food waste by creating an airtight seal that slows browning and keeps food fresher for longer.

Promising review: This product is very easy to clean, and I was surprised that it actually worked on a cut tomato! I was afraid that it would squish the tomato since the product is rather thick, but it worked beautifully. I will be using the other sizes as they are needed, but one thing I really like is that storage for these “keepers” takes up so little room in my cabinets! @DHW698

2. This smart vase is a revolutionary take on the traditional flower vase, combining form and function in a sleek, modern design. With a simple twist, you can drain the old water, and another twist releases the bottom of the vase, making it easy to cut the stems.

4.5 stars out of 5

This vase is ideal for any flower arrangement, fresh, dried, or artificial, and is designed to keep your flowers fresh and vibrant for a longer period of time. It is made of a highly resilient material that is shock-resistant and can withstand drops without splintering or breaking like traditional glass, ceramic, or crystal vases.

Promising review: The vase looks great, feels sturdy, and works great too. The hole in the bottom has not leaked while in use, and I figured it probably would. I’ve received many compliments on how nice it looks. @Laura Stoutenburg

3. Say goodbye to spoiled produce with these freshness balls! They extend the shelf life of fruits and vegetables by 2–3 times, saving you money and eliminating waste. It’s easy to use: just place a ball in your vegetable crisper, and it will begin to absorb ethylene gas, which causes produce to ripen and spoil faster.

4.4 stars out of 5

Each ball can absorb gas for up to 3 months and is reusable — just refill a new pack every 3 months with the included refill kit.

Promising review: I had meal moths and was looking for storage containers when I ran across a mention of putting a blue apple in a bread storage container. It makes bread last more than twice as long! And my fruits and veggies never go bad before they are consumed—such a money saver!
This is my second purchase, and I was very happy to find additional blue apples and the year-long refills in the cheaper bundle. Love it! @Laurie V

4. These heel protectors are the perfect solution to prevent your high heels from sinking into soft and uneven surfaces. They are especially useful for outdoor events, like weddings and graduations, but also for everyday wear. The translucent rubber matches any heel color, and the protectors fit all heel styles, making them a great addition to your shoe collection.

4.4 stars out of 5

The heel protectors are made of heavy-duty, flexible material, and the bottom is reinforced with extra layers to ensure durability. You can wear them all day without worrying about them warping or breaking.

Promising review: This product does exactly what it says it does. You have absolutely no idea how many beautiful (and expensive) shoes I’ve lost because the heels were scruffy. No more.
I got these in extra small, and I’m able to use them with different pairs of shoes. They are not uncomfortable. You don’t even feel like your shoes have anything on them, but your soles will thank you for them. Buy them in all sizes! @Bella JC

5. This soil moisture meter is the perfect tool for any plant lover! With its simple and easy-to-read design, this basic model provides accurate readings of soil moisture. The large dial displays 10 levels and responds quickly for easy reading.

4.4 stars out of 5

In addition, this meter includes watering instructions for 200 plants printed on the back of the package, making it an indispensable tool for indoor and outdoor gardening. The long probe is specifically designed to measure water in the root zone, making it suitable for all plants, including large potted plants.

Thanks to its compact and lightweight design, you can easily use it in your garden. Plus, it does not require batteries or electricity. Simply insert the sensor probe into the soil area to be checked, and you will get an accurate reading immediately.

Promising review: You can go from plant to plant quickly. This seems very accurate. No more digging with my fingers in the dirt. @Amazon Customer

6. This little bar is a must-have for any avid cook who wants their hands to smell fresh and clean. Simply rub it over your hands after working with pungent ingredients like onions, fish, or garlic, and the odors will be absorbed instantly.

4.5 stars out of 5

It is compact and easy to use. It makes a great gift for anyone who loves to cook or bake and is perfect for use in the kitchen or on the go. Made of high-quality materials, it is durable and sure to become a staple in your kitchen.

Promising review: I’ve always disliked using garlic or onions because the odor lingered on my hands for days afterward. I bought this hoping for results, and I got them! It definitely works! Only a slight smell remained, but after using it a few times, it was gone completely. Brilliant! @MSumm

7. This cosmetic spatula is an essential tool for any makeup lover or professional. It allows you to remove trapped product from your favorite beauty containers, saving you money and eliminating waste. Simply insert the spatula into a bottle or container of any size or shape to extract every last drop of product.

4.3 stars out of 5

The cosmetic spatula can also be used as an applicator for creams, serums, and other beauty products. The soft and flexible silicone tip is gentle on your skin and ensures even application.

It’s also washable and reusable, making it an eco-friendly alternative to disposable applicators. Not only can it be used to pick up and apply product, but it also doubles as a blender. Blend your favorite lipsticks, foundations, and eyeshadows with it.

Promising review: It is probably the smartest purchase I have made in years. Thanks to this, I am still using the same bottle of foundation 2 months after I would have normally given up trying to get the last bits out.
It’s a shame it is too big to fit into my concealer tube, but still, it has saved a lot of money already on the other products I have scraped every drop out of! It has a good shape for getting into the corners of square bottles and under the bottleneck; it is slightly flexible, which is handy. Good quality — it doesn’t feel as though the pink bit will detach from the black handle. @Amazon Customer

8. This laundry tool and storage hanger is a multipurpose solution that allows you to wash, dry, and store socks effortlessly. The unique foot-shaped hanger is user-friendly and can be hung anywhere, making it perfect for the laundry basket, door handle, or closet. The laundry aid comes with 2 holders, one for clean socks and one for dirty socks, each of which can hold up to 9 pairs of socks.

4.3 stars out of 5

This unit saves you time by eliminating the need to sort, match, or search for socks. It also saves sock drawer space by keeping clean socks hanging in the closet.

Promising review: It saves so much time and frustration. I can’t understand how it’s not a staple in every house. It could be cheaper, especially since you need 3–4 to really avoid mismatched socks, but it staves off so much frustration that it’s worth it anyway. @Will Kydd

9. This anti-chafing balm is essential for anyone who has chafed, irritated, or rough skin as a result of friction from clothing, shoes, or the skin. It creates a dry, invisible barrier that provides long-lasting protection and relief from skin irritation.

4.5 stars out of 5

Thanks to its invisible comfort, it stays where you apply it and doesn’t clog your pores, allowing sweat to escape and regulating your body temperature. This antiperspirant balm is quick and easy to apply right from the stick and doesn’t leave a mess like other moist creams, gels, or powders. It also washes off easily with mild soap.

Promising review: I’m not fat, but I’m not skinny, I’m right in between. I’ve always struggled with my thighs getting really bad chub chafing, and I stopped wearing skirts and dresses for about 2 years because every time I did, I was in serious pain from my thighs chafing. I asked one of my friends for suggestions, and they suggested I get Body Glide Mens. Omg, it works wonders!
I went out all day yesterday to test it out, and my thighs weren’t red or in pain. The only thing is you gotta make sure you are putting it in the right place so your thighs don’t rub. This stuff is amazing. There is no pain or rash. @Jade

10. This deep-fat fixer is a revolutionary solution for the safe and environmentally friendly disposal of used cooking oil. With its unique formula, it transforms used cooking oil into solid waste so that it can be easily disposed of in the trash can.

4.4 stars out of 5

It can be used for frying pans, woks, and deep fryers, making it a versatile tool for any kitchen. It is made of non-toxic, ecologically safe ingredients, meaning it is safe for the environment and for you to use.

Promising review: This is one of those rare products that you see while scrolling through Facebook and discover it actually works as expected! It’s a lifesaver, and my only regret is that I can’t buy it at my local supermarket. Anyone who cooks with oil should have this. @Morgan W

11. This sweater stone is the ultimate tool for removing pilling, fuzz, and lint from your clothing and linens. Made with high-quality, eco-friendly materials, this fuzz remover stone can be used on any fabric, including cashmere, wool, and the upholstery in your vehicle.

4.3 stars out of 5

This stone has an easy-to-grip wooden handle that prevents chafing while using the sweater-saving brick. The handle also provides plenty of surface area to maximize efficiency. This essential tool extends the life of your clothing by making it look as good as new.

Promising review: I had been looking for a sweater stone to replace one I had for over 20 years, no kidding! That’s how long these things last! It is exactly what I was looking for and works flawlessly.
It has a much larger surface area. Those of you who may be sweater shavers, stop! Try this if you haven’t before! @Ginger M. Swiney

Bonus: This comforter is the perfect solution for couples who have different temperature preferences when sleeping. With this dual-temperature comforter, you and your partner can sleep comfortably without compromising each other’s sleep.

4.2 stars out of 5

Its microfiber material is easy to care for because it is machine washable and does not require dry cleaning. It is also an ideal gift for friends and relatives who have problems with temperature regulation during sleep.

Promising review: My husband is so hot-natured that this is an eternal fight for us because I am always freezing in our bedroom. I finally caved and gave this a try. Holy cow.
I was so warm. And he was pleasant and cool. My only complaint is that it doesn’t have ties to keep it secured in the duvet cover I bought for it, but I will probably stitch some on. @jackie willis
