    1. A splatter guard fit for keeping the oil in your pan, not on you or your kitchen surfaces.

    amazon.com

    Made of dishwasher-safe, BPA-free, and FDA-compliant silicone that can withstand sustained temperatures of up to 450°F.

    Promising review: "This silicone splatter guard works beautifully. I found no grease splatter on my ceramic cooktop after frying so I didn't need to spend the 15 minutes cleaning that mess up. It fit my 10-inch fry pan perfectly without any issues. The Frywall itself was very easy to clean up with a little dawn dish soap and my Scrub Daddy. This is one kitchen tool that I will use over and over." —RB

    Get it from Amazon for $21.95 (also available in 12-inch).

    2. A nail polish holder that'll grip onto a variety of brands' bottles for a sturdy hold during an at-home mani.

    amazon.com

    I own one and love it!

    Promising review: "This little invention is perfect for me. I'm an artist who paints very dense, delicate designs like a machine, but usually make a MESS out of painting my own nails. I am clumsy, for one thing, and have spilled many bottles of polish. Lately I've become crippled with hip pain, so I lie down frequently. With this device, I can lie down and easily paint my nails without spilling a drop. It's a clever invention I wish I'd thought of myself!" —Chamberpaint

    Get it from Amazon for $9+ (available in 11 colors).

    And check out nail products that'll make people think you got a manicure.

    3. Insulated wine tumblers to keep your bev cold and prevent a mess of broken glass in the event of a slip.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These were great. Had a girls day in a limo and used them for mimosas. Didn't have to worry about spills, everyone had their own color, and they are lockable. At first I wished the bottoms were just the stems (not enclosed in the second plastic wall) for appearance reasons, but ended up appreciating having the sturdier bottom and ability to hold them." —Marina

    Get an eight-pack from Amazon for $29.99.

    And check out a beer version!

    4. An airtight travel mug for keeping your beverage contained...at least until you chug it.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This cup really is leak-proof in my experience. I don't even use the locking feature and have yet to spill a drop after two months of almost daily use (and I am a spiller, my wife calls me Messy Marvin!). Love the ease of cleaning as well, just flip up the mechanism and rinse or wash as necessary, flip back down to use. It holds over a regular cup of coffee, which I also appreciate, as I drink coffee almost all day. And the lid screws on the cup easier than any other travel mug I have used." —Roadking

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in 13 colors, four sizes).

    5. And a no-tip coffee mug for those times when you're not going anywhere, but you still seem to have a knack for disrupting your fave scalding hot liquid.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Bought this for my husband as he spills his coffee whenever he carries it into the living room and his cup was falling off the small coffee table by his chair. This cup solved all of my and his problems. No more spills with the non-slip feet on the bottom, and no more spills from tipping the cup as he walked. He has no problems drinking from the opening. And he uses it every day!!! Works great." —Gardner

    Get it from Amazon for $12.40 (available in four colors).

    6. An automatic lube dispenser so only the places you want to get slick will get slick.

    lovemypulse.com

    Promising review: "Lube always felt like such a hassle before (the bottle, the spills, the mess), but with the Pulse, I am SO much more excited to add it to my intimate moments. It's a very discreet machine and looks nice on my nightstand." —Trystan Sill

    Get it from Pulse for $199.

    7. And an automatic soap dispenser to release the perfect amount without turning the pump into a sticky mess.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Read many reviews before settling on this one. It works great and the way it assembles makes for easy refilling without making a mess. It also can be wall mounted and contains the hardware for that. Batteries are easy to replace as well. Instructions tell you how to dilute the correct amount of dish soap if you don't want to buy ready to use products." —R.Cox

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in two designs).

    8. Ergonomic bowls specially made for eating on the couch because this time you swore you'd be fine with a regular bowl, but we both know your history of spillage.

    uncommongoods.com

    Milk on couch cushions? No thanks!

    Get two from Uncommon Goods for $38.

    9. An adjustable oil pourer so a single drop of that *good* olive oil Ina talked you into buying won't go to waste.

    uncommongoods.com

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $9.99, Bed Bath & Beyond for $9.99, Walmart for $10.95, or Jet for $10.95.

    10. Tilted high ball glasses ready to rock 'n' roll without trashing a hotel room, much less dripping some delish bourbon on your side table.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love these. I even play jokes on people and freak them out to think the glass is going to tip over. The glass quality is good and not too thin, with a nice, solid base. I like this for when I get a little antsy and like to rock my drink back and forth." —Nvisioned

    Get them from Amazon for $29.99.

    11. A portable toy mat where the Legos your kid leaves around the house will live, damnit.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "LOVE IT! It no longer takes me 20+ minutes to clean up all my son's little Lego pieces scattered on the kitchen floor. Super easy to close and stays reasonable tight (pieces won't spill out unless you turn upside down and shake). My only wish is that the lip/edges stayed upright or were a bit more firm to keep the pieces from coming off the mat while playing. But a really great and reasonably priced purchase to keep the mess at bay!" —J&A Phillips

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    And check out the makeup version.

    12. Countertop gap covers to help bridge the divide between your cooktop and countertop so little bits of food don't start a colony in the narrow crevices of your kitchen.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Great product. We just remodeled our kitchen and these are just what I was looking for to keep the food from making a mess between the stove. Love it." —Amazon Customer

    Get a pair from Amazon for $10.95+ (available in three lengths, four colors).

    13. A one-handed paper towel stand for making your messes that much easier to clean up.

    amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $18+ (available in two colors).

    14. A revolving makeup organizer to see all your products lined up nicely instead of in a jumbled mess on your bathroom counter.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this makeup organizer! Before, I just had my makeup and things on the dresser and was always taking up time looking for a specific item. But not anymore! Now my makeup and lotions are all organized. It also spins so you can find what you want in no time at all. Finally I'm organized and my dresser is clutter free. I would recommend this. I love it!" —Kathy

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    15. A motion-sensor trashcan so you can toss that grocery store tray your raw chicken came on without infecting any kitchen surfaces.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this trash can, well as much as it would be normal. So easy to put together, the sensor works great! All three of my kids love throwing trash out now and it really packs the garbage bags, which is great, no more half bags to throw out! I really bought this because my German shepherd puppy kept knocking over my plastic garbage can, and this is great! No more messes!!!" —Sheldon

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99.

    16. A super specific but incredibly helpful microwave cover to help you heat up leftovers and avoid gross splatter. And it collapses for easy storage!

    amazon.com

    Measures 3.5" but collapses to 1" for easy storage. BPA-free and dishwasher-safe. I have one and IT WORKS.

    Promising review: "This product can be categorized as a timesaver. Have been using this for the past month and it has sharply reduced the cleaning time. No more splatter, no more cleaning in the small space. Most of my plates and bowls are covered with the collapsible design. Before getting this, using a lid was the only way to prevent the splatter, however using a lid affected the heating of food. This one however eliminates that problem. Cleaning this is a bliss too, run it under the tap water or a light scrub should do the trick. This is a must for everyone with a microwave." —Zondor

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    17. A programmable slow cooker and slow cooker liners so you'll dirty considerably fewer dishes in your haphazard pursuit of dinner.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Check out my full review of these wonderful liners (#4).

    Get the slow cooker from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in two colors) and a six-pack of the liners from Amazon for $3.19.

    18. A tiered sliding rack will make good use of those odd spaces between appliances and countertops while giving bottles of cleaning supplies a proper home.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Level with the washer and dryer when products are added. Rolls out nicely when wanting to pick out items that I put on the second and third shelf. Would recommend this product for easy storage." —Ramona Azure

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    Check out more storage ideas for when you're out of space.

    19. A washable keyboard to make erasing the evidence of the baguette you ate for lunch (no judgment here) so much easier.

    amazon.com

    The best kinda lunch IMHO (in my hungry opinion).

    Promising review: "I AM MESSY! I love this keyboard. I use this keyboard for typing documents and gaming. Very solid. It does not get junky like other standard keyboards." —Mimi

    Get it from Amazon for $55.99.

    Check out more products for the sloppiest person you know.

    20. And a nosy vacuum that'll snort up all those crumbs you somehow didn't catch on your keyboard.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The suction is pretty powerful for its tiny size. As a creative artist I am often left with eraser crumbs all over the desk when I working on drawing/art projects or when I'm crafting something I have glitter, dust, and crumbs left on the desk. I picked up the little piggy and it cleaned up my mess very well. The fact that everything collects into the head area means I can reuse the glitter it collected and dispose of the trash easily. It keeps battery power very well too." —The Fallen Angel with a broken Wing

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (also available as a pig or cat).

    21. Stain-erasing pens because accidents can and will happen, and this is the closest you can get to carrying your laundry room in your bag.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Every one of the seven members of my household now carries these magic pens wherever they go. Nice thing to have on hand. I, in fact, require it at all times. I always drop things on my clothes and use this more times than I can count. Works like a charm!" —Kathy

    Get them from Amazon for $6.86.

    Check out the best stain removers on Amazon.

    22. Red wine stain remover because having a generous pour during a horror movie marathon will always be a good idea. Jk.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "One time, I accidentally spilled a glass of red wine over our cream-colored carpet. It was a disaster. But after saturating the stain, leaving it in, and then repeatedly wiping the area with a wet cloth, it was gone. Now you can't even tell it was ever there. I also use it for other kind of stains." —Ayse Cinaroglu

    Get it from Amazon for $6.

    And while you're at it, check out some travel-friendly wine wipes for your teeth.

    23. A no-spill ice cube tray for preventing a cartoon-like scene in your kitchen and leaving you stuck with an injury and room-temp drink.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I really appreciate the snap-on cover because it prevents me from spilling water as I put the tray in the freezer. I chose this size of ice cube because I prefer it in small drinks." —LLOYD D

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $16.63.

    24. A cork-rescuing wine bottle opener because no one was ever impressed by a floating cork in vino.

    uncommongoods.com

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $30.

    25. Scotchgard to spill-proof all kinds of fabric and upholstery because accidents happen when your center of gravity seems to be nonexistent.

    amazon.com

    Pushes spills away from fabric fibers so stains release easily while maintaining fabric breathability, look, and feel.

    Promising review: "I got this for my pillows. Having a 4 and 7 year old who are constantly making messes in the living room, I was a bit fed up with replacing my pillows due to stains. The spraying was easy and quick, then I left them outside to air out. Today I noticed a big splatter of dried up ketchup on the pillow. I took a wet paper towel and rubbed off the stain. It came off completely! Nothing seeped through the fabric. I just wish I used this sooner!" —Lidia

    Get a 14 oz. can from Amazon for $9.98 (also available in heavy-duty water shield, water and sun shield, suede and nubuck, and rug and carpet.

    26. A travel cord roll to finally bring some order to your tech essentials instead of leaving them in a tangled mess at the bottom of your bag.

    amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $11.69.

    27. A door-hanging hamper as a reminder to put laundry where it belongs. No one needs to see your dirty undies strewn about your home.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This laundry hanging bag is really cool. We installed it in seconds and, surprisingly, it holds a lot more laundry than I expected. We had a significant issue with things being thrown on the floor in our mudroom area, so we sought a solution. The material is sufficient and the hole is big enough to fit most garments through. Strong buy. Go for it." —DrChap

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95 (available in five colors).

    Take a gander at the best hampers and laundry baskets from Amazon.

    28. A deodorant-removing sponge that'll speak to anyone who realized at 1 p.m.(!!!) that they had white deodorant streaks all over their dress. (It me. This happened to me just now.)

    amazon.com

    I'm not kidding.

    Promising review: "My husband is the one that needed this. I keep it on hand for when we are about to leave and those white streaks appear." —MBV31
