Oh, TikTok. If you have somehow managed to resist downloading the app that has distracted us all for nights on end, I'm not sure whether to congratulate you or scream, "you're missing everything!" This wonderland of hilarity and knowledge makes my phone-fiddling hours so much more fun.
Now, I could go on extolling the virtues of my nightly TikTok scroll all day long, but honestly, there's probably no better way to wax poetic about my experience on this magical app than to share with you the products that have - honest to goodness - transformed my whole life. If you haven't seen these beauties yet (or even if you have) and aren't sure, hear me out: I personally own everything on this list for a reason.
You watch enough home organization videos, and eventually something sticks. Well, something definitely stuck, and now I am entirely on the clear bin food storage train. I mean, just look at how pretty my fridge is! No more expired whatever hanging around in a back corner I can't see, and no more crushed eggs. I swear, once your kitchen looks this good, it feels like you've got your whole life together.
Whether you're a devoted environmentalist trying to avoid single-use aerosol cans or a foodie trying out different oils to cook with, this amazing little spray can is the perfect addition to your kitchen arsenal. I love to put olive oil in mine so that I don't have too heavy a hand with it on the stove top, but I've also used it with almond oil for baking!
Never in my life did I imagine I'd be telling everyone who will stand still long enough how much I adore my vacuum. I'll be honest: my neighbor bought this one first, and I swear, my phone was listening, because I immediately saw about a dozen TikTok videos of everyone's favorite cordless vacs. This one is not only surprisingly powerful, it holds charge exceptionally well, and it's so much more afforable than most other cordless picks out there.
Oh. Em. Gee. This mask. I can't say enough good things about this miracle of skin care. I am an oily-combination skin kind of girl (which means breakouts in my thirties - thanks, genetics), and all I have to do once per week to get my skin feeling clean, refreshed, and oh-so-smooth is mix a tablespoon of this magic powder with a little apple cider vinegar, smooth it on in an even layer, and let it do its thing. I'll readily admit that taking it off after twenty minutes can be a messy process, but it's well worth it.
You know those dumb little balls of lint that show up on your clothes after you pull them out of the dryer? The ones that are still stuck to the fabric that you just can't help but try to pick off? (Or is that just me?) This handy little device shaves them all off without doing any damage to your favorite fluffy sweater. I love using this on my throw pillows - the ones that go in the wash all the time thanks to kid-related food spills and an abundance of dog hair - and I was stunned the first time I saw how perfectly they turned out after using this little shaver.
I saw this thing once, and I impulse bought it for my daughter on the spot. Just look at how cute this thing is! Especially for kiddos (and grown-ups!) who struggle with dry air, a humidifier is always a great addition to the bedroom to have on while they sleep, and this one doubles as a pseudo-pet. My little one can even refill the tank all by herself to "keep the fishes happy".
Speaking of keeping your air feeling fresh, this air purifier made the rounds on my TikTok's "for you" page for weeks, and ever since I brought it into my living room, I've noticed a massive change. Fewer sneezes all around, less pet odor, and a lot less seasonal allergy panic? Sold, sold, sold. I keep it on at all hours, I never hear it at all, and it's even got a gentle blue glow!
I saw enough TikTok videos from fitness influencers going on about how great it was to drink one whole gallon of water every day, and honestly, I scrolled right on by. Then I saw a busy mom (like me!) doing the same thing, and she couldn't believe what it did for her skin, her sleep, her energy. Okay, okay, I figured. Let's give this a shot.
Holy cow, I'll never go back! This giant water bottle helps me keep track throughout the day with its happy little reminders at each time mark.
"Could not live without this," is LoveToKnow Executive Editor Amy Stanford's rave review about this comfy, cozy, entirely too relaxing for this world combination eye mask and Bluetooth headphones. I have to agree. Super breathable and able to hold an impressive charge, this is the perfect under $25 gift for the devoted traveler in your life.
If there's one chore I avoid like the plague, it's dishes. I absolutely cannot stand scrubbing and scraping and scouring. Lucky for folks like me, there's Dawn Powerwash. CleanTok has absolutely lost their minds over this powerful, frothing dish washing soap that totally eliminates the need to break out the Brillo pads.
