Is that caked-on tomato sauce that's all over your microwave getting you down? Don't fret: The Angry Mama is here to help clean it off in a snap. Just fill her with vinegar and water, pop her into the microwave and heat for 5-8 minutes. That's it! While she's in there, the vents in her hair will release a mist of the water-vinegar mixture, which helps soften and release all of that food buildup. Then, you can simply wipe everything down, no harsh chemicals or intense scrubbing required!

One brave customer put Mama to the real test: cleaning a microwave that had been neglected for years. The verdict? "Angry Mama is amazing!" they exclaimed. "I just tried this for the first time on my dad's microwave. As you can imagine a bachelor microwave to look like, it was messy. I did exactly as directed and it was an easy clean afterward! This is a life-changer for us! It has been years since his microwave had been cleaned and I was able to wipe the stuck-on food right off."

Now you can have your cake and slather it all over your face, too! This Funfetti-inspired mask is just as fun as it is effective: The colorful "sprinkles" make it look like a tub of frosting, and the birthday cake scent might just tempt you to take a bite. But you'll want to avoid eating this hydrating formula and instead feed it to your skin twice a week for a more refreshed, nourished complexion. It contains skin-care superheroes like hyaluronic acid, glacier water and squalane to plump and moisturize. 

$22 at Amazon

"So smooth, so luxurious," swooned a cake cosmetics convert. "It's a real treat. Skin is smooth and glowing. Friends and family compliment the healthy look, and I'm over 60 years old!"

Your kids' and grandkids' outdoor playtime just got way more fun, thanks to this next-level bubble gun. They'll be able to blow over 5,000 bubbles per minute, and solution is conveniently included. This battery-powered toy couldn't be easier to use — just dip the end of the bubble machine into the solution tray and pull the lever!

$18 at Amazon

"I bought this after seeing it on TikTok and let me tell you … It is soooooo much fun!" proclaimed a pleased parent. "It blows so many bubbles just like it does in the picture and both my daughters love it. If you’re thinking about it, just get it. It’s very well worth the money and you will not be disappointed!"

Bye-bye, (peanut) butterfingers! This extra-long knife was specifically designed to scoop every last bit of your favorite foodstuff from the jar when you just know there's enough in there for one more sandwich. Its curved end will reach into those corners, and the stainless steel blade helps you stir up natural peanut butters that tend to separate. When your friends see you wielding one of these, oh, will they be jelly!

$13 at Amazon

"It does EXACTLY what it says and does it well," wrote a nut butter buff. "The PB-Jife is exactly the perfect length for a wide variety of jars ... . The blade and handle connection were the point of biggest concern for me when buying it, but this thing is solid ... the construction is flawless ... It’s the only tool we use now for PB-style spreads and it allows my kiddos to make their own sandwiches while staying clean ... 100% recommend, especially for anyone needing assistance with large jars and natural PB stirring, and may have weaker hand strength (I also have arthritis in my hands, and being able to use this to cut through the PB while stirring with less hand strength than a regular knife was awesome). You can pry my PB-Jife from my cold, dead hands."

"These coasters are adorable!" raved a retro reviewer. "I bought several to gift to friends who grew up on vinyl. They are sturdy, relatively thick and [a] good diameter, so sweat from glasses is caught on [the] coaster, and the record arm that secures [the] coasters has wonderful detail, just like a genuine turntable."
