10 Quick-Fix Products From Amazon That’ll Have You Constantly Clicking “Add to Cart”
When your favorite jeans don’t fit in the waist, your garbage disposal has got a terrible odor, and your laundry gets all bundled up in the washing machine and comes out wet and wrinkled, it may seem like your day is already ruined. But with Amazon, these and other pesky little problems can be solved in the blink of an eye, and these 10 amazing inventions will help you — quickly and stress-free.
1. Forget about the grease and dirt in between your stove top and kitchen counter with this silicone gap cover. It prevents food particles from getting stuck in hard-to-reach areas, and there’s no need to pull out large kitchen appliances to do the cleaning. You can easily cut the cover to the necessary size and customize it to fit your stovetop. The item is made from high-quality heat-resistant material and is easy to clean with just a damp cloth.
Promising review: It’s a lifesaver. I am one of those people who, unfortunately, gets food that slips down the side of cabinets by the cooker. These have been fantastic in keeping food and other substances from escaping the pot and making a break for freedom in the dark crevices no one can get to unless pulling out every heavy appliance in the room. Personally, I would’ve liked them to be in white to go with my kitchen better, but they still do the job, so I’m not complaining. @avidread17
2. Clean the garbage disposal with no mess and stress with this garbage disposal cleaner. Its powerful foaming formula reaches deep inside the garbage disposal, scrubbing away the toughest dirt and removing unpleasant odors. The product is simple to use. It is made from natural ingredients and is safe for the sink, drain, and garbage disposal. To achieve the best cleaning result, use the cleaner weekly.
Promising review: I never thought anything beyond water and a squirt of dish soap were needed to clean the disposal until I got this product. Even after my old way of cleaning there was always a smell, and for some reason gnats and fruit flies still called that crevice home. Then I used a packet and the smell and flies were gone! This is a great product to add to my cleaning rotation, and it ensures I don’t scare off guests with some gnarly smells emanating from my garbage disposal. @Cynthia T
3. Make your diamonds shine bright again with this jewelry cleaning stick. The cleaning gel inside the stick contains micro-fine cleansers and polishing agents that bring radiance and luster to your diamonds, and its formula also contains a special polymer that fills tiny scratches making your jewelry look like new. Thanks to its compact size, the stick can be put into any bag for convenient on-the-go use.
Promising review: Wow! It’s easy to use, and it brings back the sparkle! I wish I had done this earlier — I hadn’t really realized how dull my Texas Star Topaz had gotten until I saw the difference.
It’s incredible! I had forgotten how sparkly it could be. Also, this took about one minute to do. It’s a definite winner. @amberdallas33
4. Restore your bathroom grout in just a couple of minutes with this grout reviver pen. It will make the discolored and faded tile joints white again quickly and easily, thanks to the innovative pen shape that guarantees a precise application on the existing grout lines. The pen refreshes discolored grout joints and offers triple protection against mold. The grout reviver pen is ideal for use in the bathroom or kitchen, and it dries within just 60 minutes, which means you can use the shower shortly after application.
Promising review: I don’t think I have ever left an Amazon review, but this product is sensational. It’s affordable, easy to use, and transformational! The grout in my bathroom had previously been painted over (poorly) by someone else, who also left streaks on the tiles. This pen, however, glides neatly along the grout. I barely had to wipe any residue.
To get started, I shook the pen and then gently pressed the nib into a paper towel. I would repeat that for every tile edge. I didn’t need to press hard at all, so I didn’t experience any wearing down of the nib. It looks like I’ve had the grout professionally redone, and I’m so pleased, I’m going to do my kitchen next! @Hanna
5. Make old surfaces look like expensive marble with this self-adhesive vinyl film. You won’t need any glue or professional skills to upscale your kitchen table, countertop, or even fireplace. Thanks to the grid lines on the back of the film, you can easily cut it into pieces in the desired size — then you just need to peel and stick! The film can be easily removed as well and it doesn’t damage the surface. Home improvement has never been easier!
Promising review: I’m really impressed with this. It totally changed the way my plain white desk looks. I found it pretty easy to use and apply, however, you do have to be accurate to make it perfect! The air bumps are easy to get rid of, so I would absolutely recommend this to anyone. @LucyLucy1
6. Make your furniture child-safe with these corner protectors. They work perfectly on a large variety of surfaces, including wood, glass, metal, and stone. The protectors are made from semi-soft material that provides plenty of padding for maximum safety, and they are easy to install and easy to remove. Made from high-quality materials, the items don’t deform easily, and are non-toxic, odorless, and tasteless.
Promising review: They stick well and provide protection. There’s no chance my 1-year-old will pull these off, they are stuck firm. He also tries to chew them, but they don’t appear to break up. He fell back on one and it definitely saved a nasty injury.
I don’t know what they will be like to remove, but I imagine if you slowly peel them back with some heat they shouldn’t cause damage. I like that these are big so that if one did somehow come off, it shouldn’t be a choking hazard. @Amywaimy
7. Adjust the waist of your jeans with no sewing with these easy-to-install jeans buttons. There’s no need to worry if your pant button goes missing or if you buy the wrong pant size. You can easily adjust the waist of your jeans with these ingenious button replacements, and you won’t need any special tools to do that. The set includes 6 buttons in different styles, so you can easily find the one that will suit your jeans the best. When needed, the buttons can be removed and reused.
Promising review: It’s quite a nifty little tool. I stumbled upon this idea from YouTube and thought, why not. My little 6-year-old is slim for her age, and the waists on her jeans are big. A belt would keep up a pair of jeans better, but it would have to be uncomfortably tight, and the overlap would be so obvious.
These are perfect if the jeans are just a little too big around the waist, and unlike a belt, these seem unnoticeable. At that price, I recommend keeping a pack in your sewing kit or your belt drawer. I’m happy with the purchase. They arrive in a pack with colored variations, so you can match them with your jeans. @Straight Beard
8. Prevent your laundry from losing color with this reusable color collector. You can now wash items that are different colors together with more confidence. This highly effective color collector locks loose colors safely inside, keeping your clothes brighter and colors more vibrant. Simply put the color collector cloth into the drum of your washing machine, and it will do its job! The item can be reused for up to 30 washing machine loads.
Promising review: I’m impressed. I wasn’t sure if these would do the same job as color catchers, but I’m impressed they seem to be doing great. I have one I use for lights and one for darks just in case. Both of them are discolored now, so I take it they are doing their job.
The box has tick boxes, so you can count the 30 washes they are good for. I’m probably about halfway through on both and will push them a bit further to see how they do. @C Whitfield
9. Clean your AirPods easily with this 3-in-1 cleaning pen. Its sponge, brush, and metal tip are perfect for cleaning all the crevices in your AirPods and the case. This clever little tool is small and easy to carry around wherever you go. All you need to do is rotate it and pull out the inside part to change it to the head you need at the moment, and do the cleaning!
Promising review: It’s a perfect item. It cleaned my AirPods in minutes. It reached the parts I didn’t think were possible to get to. The pick and small brush are perfect for the job. I highly recommend it. @Richard
10. Keep your laundry separated with these wad preventers. No more tangled sheets with this brilliant invention. It prevents the laundry from tangling, twisting, and balling-up in both the washing machine and the dryer. As a result, the washing loads come out cleaner, the washing machine stays balanced, and everything dries up to 75% faster with fewer wrinkles!
Promising review: I love this invention. It took me a while to get the hang of this, but now that I have it, I love it. When I first got the top-loading washer, I was always surprised that the sheets would get so tangled up in the wash. Then I stumbled upon this and bought it immediately.
Now, my sheets come out of the washer and dryer, NOT tangled up. I highly recommend this for anyone with a top-loading washer. @mm4peace
