As if some poor action figure has fallen into the garbage disposal, the Help! Drain Stoppers ($26) portray a hand reaching up for a lift. The Help! stoppers come in a pack of three, in bright colors, and in their own gift container. If we just could get around using a drain stopper at all — by way of not having to do dishes anymore — we’d be happy campers.
If you don't like having an overflowing shelf full of cleaners, you need to check out Pledge Multi-Surface Clean & Dust Spray ($4). It will cleans nearly any surface in your house or apartment — wood, glass, stainless steel, granite, plastic and more. So that means you can whip out one spray bottle for your tables, appliances, countertops, leather furniture, mirrors and most importantly, your electronics.
While we prefer to cook when a group is over, sometimes you need to know that dinner will be ready when you get home. Rest assured, the Polara Refrigerated Range from Whirlpool ($1527) has your back. With it’s built-in refrigeration feature you can put your roast in the night before and know that it won’t go bad before it actually starts cooking. A word of warning though — owning this stove doesn’t make you a better cook, so get your butt in front of some Food network and start studying.
