Think about your favorite gadgets — the ones you use on a near-daily basis. What do you love about them? Most likely, they make your life so much easier. But, what if I told you that Amazon has tons of genius products you’ve never even heard of? From clever kitchen tools that save you on meal prep time to wallet-friendly home upgrades, I’ve gathered some of the most popular items on Amazon that you didn’t know you needed. But you might want to act fast — they’re selling out fast.


A Set Of Cleaning Tools Specifically Designed For Your Earbuds

Over time, wireless earbuds can become caked in dirt and earwax — which is why this cleaning kit is such a genius invention. The narrow-tip pen clears out debris from the crevices of your earphones, while the flocking sponge clears the dust out of your wireless charging case. Both pens are retractable, keeping the heads protected while not in use.

These Whimsical Stake Lights That Are Solar Powered

Each one of these stake lights features a cluster of small bulbs that gently sway in the breeze, creating a whimsical, twinkly effect in your garden or along your front path.

Since they’re both heat-resistant and waterproof, you can rest assured they’ll work, no matter the weather.


The Bright Blue Goo That Removes Dirt & Dust From Your Car’s Interior

While it may look more like a science experiment than a cleaning product, this bright blue putty is the secret to keeping your car’s interior clean. Simply smush the gel into your air vents, center console, and cupholders, then pull it out to lift up the dirt and dust caked inside your vehicle’s crevices. In addition to your car, this goo is also great for cleaning your computer’s keyboard.


The Plug-In Trap That Catches Flying Bugs Without Any Chemicals

Keeping gnats, mosquitos, and fruit flies at bay inside your home is as easy as plugging in this UV light insect trap. The glow of the light attracts bugs to the tacky glue card — once they land on the sticky surface, they’re permanently trapped. All you have to do is replace the card once it becomes full with bugs (believe me, it will). Plus, it doubles as a night light for your bathroom, bedroom, or kitchen.


This Space-Saving Power Cube With Plenty Of Room To Plug In

Have you ever seen a power strip this small? Ideal for traveling and tight workspaces, this compact extension cube weighs less than 5 ounces and measures just 2.6 inches across.

A Miniature Fridge For Your Countertop Or Car

This multifunctional little refrigerator is perfect for storing everything from beverages to skin-care products. Measuring just under 8 inches tall, it’s small enough to fit on a kitchen counter or bathroom shelf. Even better, it’s designed with a carrying handle that allows you to easily transport it anywhere. With the included 12-volt plug, you can even set it up in your car to store snacks on your next road trip.

Not to mention, the thin covering acts as a protective barrier, preventing you from picking at your face while it heals.


A Hand-Powered Grater That Shreds In Seconds

Faster than a traditional box grater, this rotary grater just requires a few cranks of a handle to create piles of shredded cheese or veggies.
