Promising review: “This is seriously my best quarantine purchase and I have made a lot! No need for Starbucks anymore. My craving has been fulfilled. I make at least one fancy drink every morning. To make the cold foam similar to Starbucks salted honey you use a little milk (I use almond), a sprinkle of salt, and some honey then use the frother. It makes so much from a small amount and the taste is delicious!! This will be your new morning best friend. I am so happy!” —Amazon Customer
You probably had a lot of recipes to try out during the quarantine which means you must have encountered some tough dishes that make you wish you just didn’t bake something. Don’t worry, this set of three adorable, machine-washable Swedish dishcloths are here for you! They are super absorbent and designed with a cross-hatch pattern for easier scrubbing. Do you know that one of these can replace a DOZEN paper towel rolls? Yep.
Promising review: “I originally picked these up to use in lieu of nasty, nasty dishrags that invoke my inner THIS IS NOT CLEAN demon. Since then, I have used them for everything from cleaning the kitchen to wiping up spills. After use, just toss in the wash and they are ready to go again. They are the perfect size and do an excellent job on every task to which I have applied them. They come in a variety of fun prints and I have yet to wear one out. Paper towel usage has taken a real nosedive, which is a good thing given its relative scarcity at present.” —sandra simpson-kraft

You don’t have to be very squirmy or change positions on the couch every eight minutes with this five-pack of wedgie-proof cotton underwear with a wide, stretchy waistband. These are also phenomenal for running and at-home workouts, they stay in place plus, the lining is thin enough that you can barely see them under leggings.
Promising review: “They look so huge and unattractive but my goodness are they comfortable. After I got over the fact I’m at the age now where I feel comfortable buying huge granny panties I put them on and all that changed sis. These are the most comfortable underwear my big booty has ever been in. They come up to the belly button and do not feel tight around the band or in between my legs. These are perfect for period panties or if you’re just wanting comfort while sitting at home during COVID-19. Once you stop feeling bad about being in granny panties your mind and body will be freed. Just put them on and relax. 😂 They are really comfortable and freeing. The material is incredible.” —breeze
A pair of blue-light glasses to help defend your eyeballs against the strain of your transition from phone to laptop and vice versa. Say goodbye to migraines, blurred vision, and eye fatigue, prolonged exposure to blue light may cause
Promising review: “During quarantine, my girlfriend and I have both spent a lot of time on screens (she on her laptop for work, and me on the TV playing video games). We got them about two weeks ago, and we’ve both noticed a huge difference in our blue screen tolerance. It has helped our eyes feel less tired, and pretty much anytime we look at any screen now, we are wearing these glasses. This is a great, low-priced two-pack deal. Everything looks a little bit yellow while wearing them, but that is truly my only complaint! Once you’ve worn them for a while you hardly notice the yellow, until you take them off.” —Taylor S.

Promising review: “I’m sitting all day at home during the COVID outbreak, and I was looking for something I could use now and in the future. It is intense!

This ventilated laptop stand you can prop on a table or a desk for a WFH-friendly environment is the perfect product for people who’s been experiencing tensed neck and strained eyes lately. This makes your laptop screen eye-level to reduce neck and shoulder strain and gives your laptop fan space to breathe so it doesn’t overheat.
Promising review: “This was recommended in an article about handling working from home during this COVID-19 stay-at-home requirement — since workspaces at home aren’t as ergonomic as at work when it comes to 8-hour work days. It is SO worth it! It’s incredibly sturdy. The laptop is now placed at a perfect angle. I bought a wireless keyboard which I can use with my laptop when the laptop is in the stand — and then at the end of my workday, I just slide my wireless keyboard under the laptop in the space created by the stand, and I regain that bit of space on my table. I love it. Add in the brushed silvery tone, and it has been a great investment for me.” —Joe Mama
