Add just one of the genius items below to your cart and you’ll be wondering how you ever lived without it — so stock up now before they sell out ... again.


A defogger that won’t leave streaks or scratches

If you’ve ever panicked when your car windows fogged up while driving, you’ll want to ensure you have this defogger on hand. The smooth pad instantly removes condensation without scratching the glass. Because it can be used wet or dry, you don’t need any additional products for it to work. When it’s time to refresh the perforated fabric, throw it in the washing machine for a quick fix.


These headrest hooks that keep your bags from spilling

Leaving your bags loose on the seat next to you can be both inconvenient and dangerous (because they will inevitably end up flying to the floor). Keep everything secure and within reach with this four-pack of headrest hooks. No tools are required — just loop them around the bars of each headrest; each hook can hold up to 13 pounds. You can split the four hooks between multiple vehicles or give everyone their own hook on your next road trip.

These silicone baking sheets will have your pastries gliding right onto your favorite plates thanks to their nonstick surface that can be reused 3,000 times.

And when you’re done, they can easily be wiped down and rolled up for compact storage. And since you won’t be wasting aluminum or parchment paper, you’ll be saving some cash as well.


A cleaning gel that grabs dust in tight spaces

Even the smallest dusters and vacuum attachments can’t get into the tiny spaces that this cleaning gel can. Use the flexible putty in your car to clean air vents, console panels, storage bins, cup holders, and more. It can also be used on your keyboard and other tech items like cameras. It’s lightly fragranced for a fresh feel and can be reused repeatedly until the gel starts to fade to black, indicating that it's losing its stickiness.
