Ready for Prime time: Behold these must-buy deals on household must-haves. (Amazon)

It's Day 2 of Amazon Prime Day, and while you should absolutely snag that on-sale smart TV you've been eyeing, don't forget about the everyday staples! While they might not be as flashy, they're the items we use on a daily basis, and stocking up while they're marked down is a smart way to save big over time. We're seeing lots of deals that'll help you beat inflation and save big on stuff you simply can't — or won't — do without.

Why trust us? Well, as professional shoppers, it's sort of our job to know prices inside and out — and for Prime Day, we've been tracking sale histories and vetting Amazon products around the clock. In short, we know what separates a "blah" deal from a brilliant one, and you can rest assured these fall into the latter camp.

So, what can you get for less? We're seeing sales of up to 55% on tissues, TP, paper towels, batteries, trash bags, undies and more. In many cases, you can get even bigger savings when you sign up for Subscribe & Save — which will also relieve you of having to remember to re-order what you need when you run low. With that in mind, these are the best Prime Day deals on essentials to score right now, but hurry — the sale ends tonight!

These No. 1 bestselling fabric-softening balls can be reused for over a thousand laundry loads.

Quite simply, this is one of the softest toilet papers you can buy — if not the softest. You can snag this 6-pack for just $8, so if you buy a bunch of these (or go the Subscribe and Save route), you're talking some serious cash-saving. This paper also features the brand's special "smooth tear" perforations to lower the risk that any paper will go to waste.

Detergent is one of those things you'll always need more of, and it can be a little pricey.

This is the best price we've seen 'em for.

It's always wise to have backup toothbrushes on hand for guests or travel. These innovative brushes feature nanofibers that reach between teeth, cleaning deeper than standard brushes and even doubling as flossers in a pinch. With bristles finer than a strand of human hair and they are designed to get in between teeth and are soft enough for sensitive gums too. We've yet to see them on sale for much less than this.

These No. 1 bestselling pillows are hits among hundreds of thousands of Amazon shoppers (really) and Yahoo readers can't stop scooping them up, either.

They're not often on sale for 40% off unless it's for a big event like Prime Day.

Unfortunately, your home isn't going to clean itself, but you can at least get Mrs. Meyer to pitch in.

No, running your dishwasher while it's full of dirty dishes doesn't count as cleaning the appliance itself.

This is as low as we've seen this 24-pack drop all year.
