    46 Things That'll Help Solve Some Of The Little Problems That Have Been Bothering You

    From face mask loops rubbing your ears raw to your family using a scary amount of TP, these things'll help ease a variety of woes.

    1. Earring lifters that'll discreetly keep those door knockers (and much smaller, equally stylish earrings!) from looking like they're slumping out of your ear. Perhaps you'll hang onto pairs for much longer!

    Promising review: "These are truly magic!! Imagine my dismay when my husband brought home these STUNNING earrings for our anniversary and they looked like the first picture. A little searching brought me to these game changers! I have a longer ear lobe so the back does not show at all. If they do show you could turn them upside down so the longer end is up top, easy way to hide the back. I hadn't noticed the smaller diamond hangs down a little until I was putting these on... Now they stand up tall with the new backs!!!" —Cheryl Gates

    2. A button headband specially made to not only keep hair out of your face, but a mask securely on your face without rubbing your ears.

    Model holding vaccine sleeve with resealable top

    Promising review: "Perfect for safeguarding the CDC COVID-19 Vaccine card. Just HATE that the CDC didn’t produce wallet-sized cards to begin with.The plastic and the zip lock are sturdy and can be attached to a lanyard. It’s definitely sized correctly for the CDC card. I pass these out to family and friends when they get their dose of vaccine. It’s necessary to protect the low quality cards with your vaccine batch number stickers." —B.

    4. A blush/highlighter duo for that *just right* sun-kissed look without looking like you're the victim of a contouring disaster. Like, can I get a little color without it being TOO obvious? Even if I layer on sunscreen like my life depends on it?!

    5. A high-wattage glow booster you can use alone or on top of your fave splurge-y highlighter in case you'd prefer that your shimmer is seen from space. Sometimes you could just really use that extra gleam.

    three forearms of people with dark, medium, and fair skin tones with the silver highlighter swatched on the wrists to show the pigmentation

    This has a well-deserved spot in my makeup bag and a little will go a long way for helping you achieve maximum shimmer status. It really dials up any highlighter and, WOW you get some major bang for your buck. Here's to looking like a scarily glam alien.

    six steps showing how to attach necklace clasps to loops on this connector tool that is then put on by sliding to bars into each other so multiple necklaces lay flat for wearing

    Promising review: "These are really great for stacking necklaces. i wear three necklaces every day and this makes it so much easier to get them on in the morning. My only fault is that they still slide causing the clasp to be pulled to the front in the middle of the day, not the biggest issue for me but maybe for someone." —antoinette

    Get an eight-pack from Amazon for $8.49+ (available in four finishes).

    8. A tablet stand so you can watch, browse, or read during your down time without letting it fall on your face or making your hand ache. (I can't be the only one whose hand is a bit sore from clocking hours playing Sudoku and reading library books on my tablet.)

    Promising review: "I go to sleep every night reading a book, looking at the news, or playing a game on my iPad. I am a back sleeper and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been jolted awake by the iPad falling on my face after falling asleep with it in my hands. Last night, I used this for the first time and I can’t tell you how happy I is brilliant. I fell asleep and my face was safe! It is easy to use, it is the perfect height so that I can keep my head resting on the pillow. Worth every stinkin’ penny!" —LulaBelle

    Promising review: "The perfect handy tool for getting into tight places. It's firm enough for multiple uses but it doesn't scratch or mar surfaces. I should have gotten the five-pack, I have so many uses for these things. I think the best use yet was cleaning the sliding door track, I finally could get into the corners to get the grunge out. A great invention. And, it works as a good cuticle pusher-downer too!!" —Miss Picky

    Get it from Amazon for $9.65.

    12. An ~edgy~ brownie pan for edge lovers that'll make every last piece of the brownie an edge piece but the edge pieces are more delicious than those subpar traditional middle one!

    product shot of brownie pan with three dividers that jut out from the sides to the middle so that every piece of brownie has a crispy edge after baking

    Promising review: "Because this pan is intended for the 'brownie-edge lover,' if you aren't one, this is not the pan for you. Now if you're still reading then you must have heard the rumors about this pan. Not being one that makes brownies more than once a month I just couldn't convince myself to spend over $30 on a pan. Now that I have it I will never go back to a standard pan for brownies. It gives every brownie at least two chewy edges, it's totally nonstick, and there is no oiling or flouring necessary. Cleanup is easy. A little hot water, soap, rinse, dry, and voilà!" —Cricket

    Get it from Amazon for $36.95.

    13. Teeth-whitening pens you easily apply and let sit a minute or two to dry. Buh-bye annoying strips and coffee stains.

    Promising review: "I like the look of decorative pins but avoid them due to fear of breakage. These were designed specifically for curly hair so there are no worries. They glide smoothly onto hair and can be removed without causing damage. They're also really cute." —Antoinette

    Get them from Amazon for $17.99 (available in 12 different styles).

    15. Slow-cooker liners that'll lure you into using your fave lazy-day kitchen appliance even more often thanks to the one-and-done cleanup.

    Get it from Orly for $9.99 (available in more colors).

    person wearing the bra liner with a black lacey bra

    Promising review: "I was skeptical at first, and although it does bunch up/not lay perfectly flat, that slight discomfort is WAY better compared to the moisture problem it solves. I don't seem to sweat as much, when I do it absorbs wonderfully. When I forget to put it in my bra, I regret it. I don't get as itchy and have rashes anymore. Wonderful product, super grateful for it." —heather raven

    Get them from Amazon for $14.98+ (available in three sizes).

    18. Bra strap adjusters that'll keep loose straps from slipping down or peeking out underneath a racerback silhouette.


    Promising review: "Love these clips. I’m always wearing shirts that have the racer back and as a mom not many nursing bras I own are racer back so these are a great quick fix so I don’t have bra straps hanging out of my shirt. They aren’t noticeable under the shirt. I’m glad that there are several of them because I have a tendency to lose small items and the best part is they are affordable! If you have a difficulty getting them on loosen your bra straps first because when you pull them in you need the straps longer so it’s not uncomfortable:)" —Evangelina morales

    Get a 12-pack (6 of each kind) from Amazon for $5.95.

    19. Grocery bag carriers to help cut out a few trips from the car to the house, and be a bit easier on your hardworking fingers.

    two people walking and using the plastic bag carrier product to carry easily several heavy plastic grocery bags

    Promising review: "My husband and I live on the second story of an apartment with only stairs and we have to park farther away as we live in Chicago. This makes life sooo much easier. Yes the bags are still ridiculously heavy if you pack them on there, but being able to hold all the bags at once prevents my husband or me from cutting off the circulation in our arms from the plastic bags. The handle does hurt your hand when there is a lot of weight, but you can tape it up or put on gloves." —Alyssa R.

    Get two from Amazon for $13.95.

    20. Sheet suspenders to keep your fitted sheet from creeping up on the corners once and for all. A deep mattress or weird dream doesn't mean you should wake up burrito-d in that fitted sheet.

    Promising review: "I have an extremely deep mattress and was having problems with keeping my memory foam mattress topper in place with the sheet — this product is EXACTLY what I needed.

    Get them from Amazon for $8.99.

    Mane Club, Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

    I have a very thick head of naturally curly hair and have put it through just about everything, including all kinds of hot tools, at-home dye kits, the gamut of shampoo and conditioner types, basically every dry shampoo and hair oil in existence, and just about anything else to try for a story for you dear readers. Lots of products have either straight-up failed, been meh enough for me to not recommend, or fantastic but so costly that I feel guilty recommending them. Basically, a lot of stuff ends up in the trash or pawned off on my (grateful) friends when it isn't a fit for me. But THIS STUFF. This stuff has become my go-to for spraying on my wet hair and then blow drying. Normally I'd apply a heat protector and an oil treatment or leave-in conditioner before blow drying. But this 10-in-1 treatment takes the cake! Most of the time when I use it, I don't even need to finish off my hair with hair oil (I've been doing that as an essential hair step for years now). It's really that good! Here, I have freshly blow dried hair with just this post-shower using this Amika blow dryer brush. This brush is fantastic on its own but this spray-on treatment has more or less doubled this brush's effectiveness. My hair comes out feeling softer, looking shinier and healthier, and stays looking good for days — which is especially great news because I wash my hair about every four days. 'Tis time for me to unload a bunch of hair products I now no longer need to my friends.

    Get it from Mane Club for $8 (cruelty-free, vegan).

    26. Lifting, shaping boob tape that'll stay put despite what you have planned... even under a swimsuit you're actually wearing in a body of water!

    Brassybra is a woman-owned biz that was inspired by the founder Katherina's fruitless search to find a supportive bra alternative to wear with her wedding dress. She went with duct tape (OUCH) and now, well, you don't have to!

    This kit includes three one-time use bra sets, three sets of nipple covers, and one test strip. It's latex-free, hypoallergenic, and can be cut to accommodate necklines.

    Get them from Brassybra for $38 (available in five shades and sizes A/B, C/D, DD-DDDD/European G; shown in chocolate).

    27. A winged eyeliner stamp in case you've spent what feels like an eternity (or maybe just quar) working on your flick to no avail. Same.,

    Promising review: "I am not one to write reviews often, but this product has exceeded my expectations! I normally use liquid liners such as Kat Von D Tattoo, but this has drastically reduced the time it takes for me to create a winged look! I personally prefer a longer wing, but this stamp provides a template to work with and reduces the amount of time to create ‘sister’ wings — they’re pretty much twins now! The eyeliner pen itself it’s a bit broad for me, but the pigment is great!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.97 (available in two sizes).

    Promising review: "I cannot even believe this stuff. I just purchased a house built in 1900 with gorgeous original woodwork that not had attention in quite some time. I was a little skeptical trying something like this, so I tried it out on some woodwork that is behind a dresser. Next thing I know, I'm putting this on any piece of wood I can find. This stuff is a miracle in a bottle. Do not hesitate to purchase this, I will always keep some on hand from here on out." —Kristen

    They're made without grains, gluten, dairy, erythritol, refined starch/tapioca, added sugars, sugar alcohols, lecithin/gums, or stevia. Oh, so they're also keto-friendly too.

    Promising review: "The texture on these little cookies is amazing--so crisp and light! The flavors are all delicious. My personal faves were the peanut butter and chocolate chip but I think the ginger snap and snickerdoodle would make really great crusts or crumbles to bake with." —Lindsay F.

    Get four bags of cookies for $20 (available in chocolate chips, snickerdoodle, peanut butter, ginger snap, or a variety pack with all four flavors).

    Promising review: "Usually these types of products have disappointed me. But Sugru lives up to its promise. I used it to install a shower curtain rod without drilling holes into the wall (the tension rods kept slipping and falling, so I wanted a more permanent solution). I made simple hooks to hang bathroom accessories. And I also fixed my Mac's fraying power card. Awesome product, highly recommend." —Sharmila Velamur

    My colleague Melanie Aman is a huge fan of this bidet attachment. Here's what she has to say:

    "This is the bidet I use and I 100% recommend to my friends, family, and to you, dear reader. Installation was pretty simple; from start to poop it took about 15 minutes. The sensation is truly something if you've never experienced it before, but the cool water will probably feel good once it's summer and my apartment gets nice and steamy."

    Get it from Tushy for $99 (available in three colors).

    37. A hanging jewelry organizer that'll ACTUALLY keep those bracelet and necklaces from tangling thanks to hanging loops.

    Promising review: "I needed something that would save me space, but where I could still see all of my jewelry. These things are extremely durable. I bought two of them, and I have probably 50 or so necklaces on one side and maybe 30 pairs of earrings on the other side. There is not a single tear in it. In the other one I keep nail polishes. It is very convenient because you can see all the colors and it does not take up that much space." —Nellie F.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in three colors).

Now I can see what I have, I save cabinet space, and it is easy to store along side my kettle. I loved it so much I ordered a second one for my office. I get many compliments." —D. Burks

    Get it from Amazon for $16.83+ (available in three colors).

    40. A rechargeable lighter can *safely* light your various candle babies without worrying about lighter fluid or a flimsy match.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    Promising review: "This is seriously the coolest device of my winter holiday. It makes lighting candles a breeze. Yes, there is a weird crackling noise, but that's a super minor annoyance. It's a super intuitive device. Plus the lighter with the USB (included), charge for a bit, then pop it open and light ALL THE THINGS; well, candles. I don't know how well it lights cigarettes or whatever. However, for my personal intended use, it's awesome!" —Jee W

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    41. A cleansing oil to help ~gently~ remove your day's makeup and debris without robbing your skin of moisture. Here's to a cleanser that'll knock out your mascara residue too! (Yep, it's making my waterproof mascara and liner melt in this pic mid-wash.)

    writer with foundation and mascara dissolving on face holding a bottle of the cleanser
    Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

    I know this is a truly horrifying pic of myself to put on the Internet. But I would for this GOAT. This oil cleanser has been a cult product awhile and I've tried all sorts of cleansing oils and balms in pursuit of something that's gentle enough for my dry, rosacea-laden skin but effective on my heavy makeup routine. (Most other products just clogged up my sink and had me reaching for my Makeup Eraser for cleanup.) This product deserves every accolade you've ever read about it! This pic is a celebration of using a whole 6.7 oz. bottle, which lasts for months and months btw. You simply apply it to a dry face, massage in, then add some water. It emulsifies and becomes white, and really starts to break down makeup. It's also gentle enough for my eye area (as you can see) and makes rinsing off all that makeup super easy. After I took this pic, I rinsed all the makeup leftovers still visible on my face with just my water and hands. The bottle's pump design makes it even more user-friendly. Sometimes I just use this cleansing oil solo, but most often follow up with Dr. Loretta Gentle Hydrating Cleanser, which has become another go-to for my routine.

    Get a 2.3 oz. bottle from Target for $13.99 or three size options from Dermstore for $5.50+.

    42. A cutting board with six mats each labeled for a specific purpose, meaning you can easily swap out for a clean mat when you're cooking instead of having to rewash the same one four times in one night.

    bamboo cutting board with colorful mats

    Each mat fits snugly into top of the cutting board so they don't slide around while you chop, then seamlessly store in its base.

    Promising reviews: "Perfect for dicing vegetables! Just pick up the mat and slide them into the pot! No more trying to pick them up with a sharp knife. Lots of mats included. My daughter has one so I had to buy one too. Love it." —Linda P. Stauffer

    43. A cute lil' brown sugar bear that'll prevent your brown sugar from turning into an unappetizing rock that you unearth once you've already started mixing the other cookie ingredients.

    Promising review: "Just read the instructions and follow them. I was skeptical, but this bear is magical. I have brown sugar in a glass canister and I was about to throw the whole container out. The sugar was unbreakable. I came across this bear and I thought it wasn't real. I put the bear in the canister and reluctantly walked away. The next day I was pleasantly surprised to find REVIVED and soft brown sugar!!!!! Great buy!" —S.G.

    44. Rubber anti-vibration pads made to put a halt to a jiggling washer that always makes the BIGGEST racket. Bye noise!

    Promising review: "If I washed a large load (like towels) the machines would take on a life of their own: wobbling, shaking, scooting… It’s amazing how far a large front-load washer can travel on a tiled floor. I put one disc beneath each foot of the machines, and since then the've remained firmly planted to the floor. In 15 months they have not budged even an inch. The discs are quite substantial, and seem to be made of a very heavy and dense rubber. They aren’t adhesive, but they do seem to provide enough traction with the floor to keep the washer and dryer from moving." —Frederick
