    27 Problem-Solving Products For People Who Are Always Spilling On Themselves

    Brb, gotta go order myself an adult bib.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A stainless-steel wine stopper that'll put a nice, tight seal on your half-finished bottle. It's great for keeping your wine tasting fresh and delicious (for up to 10 days!), BUT it'll also prevent disaster from striking when you inevitably knock it over while making cookies or something.,

    Promising review: "I bought these for opened wine bottles inside my mini wine cooler. This is exactly what I needed — air tight and spill proof." —Sonya

    Get one from Amazon for $8.99.

    2. And a suction cupholder, because you've had too many close calls with your nightly glass of vino during bath time.

    Reviewers also note that this works for shampoo bottles and other bath products!

    Promising review: "My wife got me this as a Christmas present and I must admit I rolled my eyes when I opened the box. 'That'll never work' I thought to myself. We stuck it on the shower wall that day and have had no issues since. It's still sticking some 60 days later and shows no signs of slipping. It holds beer cans and plastic pint glasses like a boss and for those days when I'm feeling super bourgeois and make a cocktail, but dump it in a Tervis tumbler — it fits too! Shower beers will never be the same again!" —Morgan

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in six colors).

    3. Ok, AND some red wine stain remover since you'll undoubtedly celebrate your spill-free bath by excitedly flailing your unfinished glass in the air and... oops, you did it again.

    It works great on clothing, carpet, and furniture.

    Promising review: "My husband bought me this as a gag-gift stocking stuffer, so I wasn't expecting much from it. Last night I spilled red wine on our cream colored couch and promptly used the stain remover. The wine disappeared almost before my eyes." —downeydm

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95.

    4. Or a pack of Magic Erasers if that glass of wine makes its way onto the wall instead (this might sound unlikely to a non-spiller but, believe me, staining a wall is NOT hard to do).

    reviewer photo showing before and after photos using the magic erase sponge to clean wine off their wall, revealing no remnants of the stain after using the sponge

    Promising review: "Hey! Did I tell you Mr. Clean and his Magic sponges changed my life?! I live in an apartment that very quickly gets gross and grubby due to oldness and I use these suckers on *everything*. I don't recommend using them on matte walls but I do anyway, to erase scuffs. I use them on my kitchen floor which is disgusting thanks to the '60s floor tiles that are peeling off the floor, and my Siamese cat who eats his wet food while standing on his plate and then walks around leaving little paw prints of grossness. I use the sponges to clean everything in my bathroom and kitchen. There's nothing more satisfying than wiping your stove with a damp Mr. Clean, turning it over, and seeing the tint of filth. Even if you think you have an immaculate kitchen, (and your friends say, 'OMG, your house! It's so clean! I wish my house was so immaculate!' when they visit.) Mr. Clean will prove to you otherwise." —Customer Review

    Get them from Amazon for $11.

    5. A roll of reusable bamboo towels that are more durable and absorbent than the regular kind. 'Nuff said.

    Product photo showing outside packaging as well as roll of bamboo towels

    Each roll includes 20 reusable sheets that can simply be washed once soiled and last for approximately six months.

    Promising review: "I use a shameful amount of paper towels and these make feel so much less wasteful! I have a tiny little bin on my kitchen counter that I put the used ones in and then transfer to the laundry bin when full. I put them in the dryer even though it says not to, they are fine. They turn to more of a felt like texture after being washed and dried but still work great. Also I store the loose clean ones in an empty Kleenex box (long rectangular kind) by folding them the same way tissues are in a box. This is a nice way to dispense them once off the roll." —CH

    Get them from Amazon for $8.99.

    6. A spill-proof tumbler for literally all your beverages. Coffee by morning, water by day, adult bevvies by night... These are a godsend for the spill prone.,

    They're also insulated, which means they'll help keep your hot drinks hot and your cold drinks cold — but that's not our main concern here.

    Promising review: "These are wonderful. I was concerned that they would look cheap but they are super nice. I would give them as gifts to someone if I didn't love them so much (but I will definitely be buying more as a gift). They are very stylish and hold a deceptively large amount of wine (or other beverages)... I love that they are sturdy-feeling without being too weighty. All in all, I am very pleased with this purchase and I will be back for more." —Maudie Kyung

    Get it from Amazon for $10.97 (available in 10 colors).

    7. And a table coaster specifically designed to keep your beverages firmly planted and prevent any accidental spillage.

    Promising review: "Purchased after spilling my coffee at work one too many times. It’s great! It’s study and fits small and larger cups by removing the inner tray. It stays put by a 'jelly-like' sticker on the bottom. I haven’t tried moving it so I can’t comment on the stickiness after it’s been stuck then moved. A little pricey, but worth it since it’s not going to budge." —Jessica :)

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in two colors).

    8. Bissell Stomp & Go Cleaning Pads that'll effectively remove any kind of stain you might happen to grace your carpet with.

    Side note: these are great if you have pets, too!

    Promising review: "These things saved me from replacing my entire upstairs carpet! Stomp and leave it for 24 hours and I was amazed to see my carpet was its original light cream color. I’ll never spend hours scrubbing the floor or carpet shampooing again!" —findingk8

    Get a 20-pack from Amazon for $24.99.

    9. A microfiber mop and hands-free wringing bucket perfect for cleaning up that (glass) jar of red sauce you tragically dropped on your (tiled) kitchen floor.


    The mop heads can be easily removed and are machine washable!

    Promising review: "I'm the queen of never mopping because I hate it more than anything else. I will literally only mop maybe once or twice a YEAR. A friend who is a house cleaner recommended I try the O-Cedar Easy Wring mop and bucket. I tried it for the first time today. It's so easy to fill up, carry around with the handle, and wringing it out using the foot pedal is, dare I say, FUN!!! TIP: Hold the handle extremely lightly in your hand so the handle will spin when you wring. I like that I was able to wring more for a drier mop for my laminate and hardwood floors) and wring less for my linoleum and tile that needed a deeper clean. It's easy to dump the water when done. I will definitely be using this mop more frequently than once a year!" —B. Nichols

    Get it from Amazon for $29.98.

    10. Or, a pair of mop slippers with removable soles great for soaking up more *minor* spills in the laziest way possible.

    reviewer wearing the mop slippers

    Promising Review: "I buy mopping slippers. Yup, that's right. This isn't my first pair... I have a 2-year-old and they're great for mopping up little splashes and drops of water from doing dishes and the extra padding is nice. No paper towels wasted and it's immediate. Plus these are cute. You have to have a sense of whimsy [fun] for this functional novelty item. My last pair did not have this detachable mopping bottom. I enjoy washing the top and bottom parts as I think it's cleaner but it's a nice feature." —G. Kim

    Get them from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in multiple colors, adult sizes, and kid sizes).

    11. A set of pour-friendly mixing bowls because you already know what's coming when it's time to add the dry ingredients to the wet: a plume of flour and sugar all over your kitchen countertop and all over you.


    ICYMI, never trust a spiller to pour anything. Period.

    Promising Review: "I purchased this three-piece set to downsize from the heavy Pyrex glass mixing bowls. I am very satisfied with these bowls so far. I love the colors, and the bowls hold quite a bit more than you would anticipate. I was concerned going from a eight-piece glass set to these and this set covers all my needs. The nonskid bottoms are great, especially when using a hand mixer. My favorite feature has to be the spout — no more spilling when transferring!" —imanurse

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in three colors).

    12. An adorable mini vacuum to clean up all those crumbs that ~somehow~ got on your desk or in your bed. 🤷


    Promising Review: "I love how convenient it is! Makes my life just a little bit easier and allows me to be just a little bit lazier. Also, it's pretty darn cute so it doesn't stand out or look awkward sitting on my nightstand next to my bed. I like to munch in bed while binge-watching the latest show I have discovered. I have black sheets so the crumbs and other random bits that get into the bed stick out like a sore thumb. This little ladybug helps it seem like I have my ish together and don't eat every meal in bed." —Natasha

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in four colors).

    13. A cutting board with foldable sides so you can *safely* transfer your veggies to the frying pan.


    Promising review: "Love these! They're very handy, allowing you to chop easily and then pour your fruit and veggies into whatever container you desire without spilling." —Anne P.

    Get it from Amazon for $16 (available in three sizes and five colors).

    14. Easy Off Professional Oven Cleaner to remove all the burnt-on food and grease that's currently coating the inside of your oven (i.e. remnants of the frozen pizza you dropped toppings-side up last week).

    Promising review: "I'm a little embarrassed to write this review; it's been ~6 years since my last oven cleaning... After seeing the results, I couldn't help but spread the word. Sure, it took some beer, a little John Mayer, and a lot of elbow grease, but I got the job done, thanks to this handy little product. It did require two treatments; however, given the circumstances, this product accomplished quite a feat in just an hour. The pictures speak for themselves." —William Fredericks

    Get it from Amazon for $7.10.

    15. Or a nonstick oven liner to catch all those drips and spills once and for all.

    Promising review: "I have a nonself-cleaning oven for the first time in decades. After having an apple pie spill over and spending more than an hour cleaning it up, I purchased these oven liners. What a time-saver. The are easy to cut so they fit perfectly. Because I have a visible heating element, the liner goes right on the oven floor, under the heating element." —Kimberly Barnes-O'Connor

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $13.99.

    16. Stove burner covers since you, like me, have a reputation for stirring the stir-fry a little too vigorously. These'll make cleaning things up top just as easy as down below.

    reviewer photo showing burning covers

    Promising review: "Safe and easy. It will go under the fire that will not block your cooking fire. Even some edge touches the fire, it will be burned to white color but not fired up. I also put it inside the dishwasher to wash it. Those are very thin cover but no deformation after running through the regular circle inside my dishwasher. All those are already good enough for me." —buyer

    Get an 8-pack from Amazon for $12.99.

    17. And stove counter gap covers because your haphazard cooking style always results in bits of food and unknown liquids spilling into the abyss between your stove and lower cabinets.

    reviewer photo of stove gap cover placed over the gap between their stove top and kitchen countertop

    And don't worry, they're heat-resistant!

    Promising review: "They certainly do the job I got them for. I was concerned that they wouldn't be the correct length, but they're more than long enough. I will cut them to fit. Held off until I was certain of my satisfaction. The finish is matte but looks nice and wipes clean easily. The material they're made of settles into the space between counter and range easily and I don't have any trouble with them shifting positions. I'm happy with this purchase and recommend them to anyone." —STAR STRUCK

    Get a pair from Amazon for $9.95+ (available in three colors and two lengths).

    18. A set of waterproof adult bibs that there's no shame in wearing. These come in fun patterns and are worth using so you stop ruining all your clothes.

    model wearing adult bib in three different patterns

    Promising Review: "Okay, I'll admit it, I'm a messy eater. I got these for Mom, who is even messier than I am, but I will admit I've used the bibs a few times myself. Mom loves the colorful designs and the snaps that form a pocket at the bottom of the bib. She stores her napkins in the pocket and I...who has to clean up after her...loves being able to brush the bib down moving crumbs down into the pocket and unsnap the pocket over the trash bin dumping used napkins, crumbs and everything else out directly into the trash. The bibs can be wiped clean with a damp cloth (or paper towel) and when they get a bit too grungy, go right into the washing machine. I even put them through the dryer without a problem. This was a very good buy and, for now anyway, three is enough!" —Eris Reddoch

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $24.99.

    19. A chips-and-dips bowl to make the journey from dip to mouth less dangerous for you, your furniture, and your wardrobe.

    chip bowl filled with potato chips and two condiment holders filled with a ketchup and a green dip

    Promising review: "Exceeded my expectations. We’ve used this set several times. We put the chips in the big bowl and salsa and guacamole in the small bowls. Everyone wants to know where we got it from. I love it." —YWB

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99.

    20. And a dip clip that offers similar protection while you're on the road. Gone are the days of trying to balance the barbecue sauce in your lap only to hit a bump and have it spill all over your thighs.,

    Looking back, some of my worst spills have happened in moving vehicles.

    Promising review: "I love these!!! The part that grips on to your vent, is actually a very tough cushion that keep the weight of the Saucemote with ketchup container, from sliding down. I usually now keep one in my Jeep and a second in my purse for use when I’m in someone else’s car!" —Gillian

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $10.05.

    21. A watermark removing cloth because you're always spilling drinks down the side of your nightstand (that just so happens to be a family heirloom) and you need to get it back in shape before your mother comes over next weekend and discovers your reckless ways.

    Promising review: "Worked wonders! I spilled nail polish remover on my nightstand. This worked like magic! Just rub lightly with the cloth." —JMac

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    22. Grandma's Secret spray, so you can restore all your food-and-drink-stained clothing (including that expensive hoodie you just bought and immediately spilled hot chocolate on) to their former glory.

    Promising review: "I dropped an open bottle of foundation on a deep-red silk comforter. Three washes later, it looked good as new (technically four washes, because I wasted time with a lesser stain remover!). Then I used it on the bit of foundation that spilled on my carpet — also removed that stain completely. This stuff is amazing! It works on everything, and is my go-to for oily stains. I have seen some people complain about the price, but this isn't an ordinary stain remover — this is your I-thought-that-was-ruined, life-saving stain remover! The price is worth it when you think of it that way. I use my ordinary stain remover on little things, and when those don't come out, I rely on Grandma's to do the job. It has never failed me." —emilylf

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98.

    23. And a pack of Shout wipes to instantly remove stains wherever you might be (i.e. the mustard stain you got on your shirt because you decided to eat a hot dog 30 minutes before a job interview).

    reviewer's before-and-after photo showing the stains on their white blouse completely removed after using the Shout wipes

    Promising review: "These things are AMAZING!!! I was wearing a brand-new white blouse for the first time and accidentally squirted purple Mio (really concentrated water flavor drops) all over it. I pulled one of these Shout wipes out of my desk, put a napkin under the stain, and dabbed the wipe onto the stain. I swear, the wipe pushed the stain out of my shirt and onto the napkin!!! I can’t even tell where the stains were now and I haven’t even washed the shirt. Get some of these and keep them in your purse, car, desk, suitcase, everywhere!" —Rhyan

    Get them from Amazon for $8.15.

    24. A silicone keyboard cover that'll not only protect your keys from pretzel crumbs and greasy-potato-chip fingers, but will also be a lifesaver when you inevitably spill a glass of water or coffee.

    model placing purple keyboard cover onto laptop

    Promising review: "This is my third one! Just because i like to switch up my laptop a lot due to personal preference. The cover hugs nicely, no gaps, and doesn't feel unnatural to type on. This keyboard cover also saved my computer from a spilled drink on two occasions!" —Tracy Schmidt

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in 8 colors).

    25. OR, a keyboard that is straight up washable. Whether you use it for work, gaming, or just leisure, this'll make sure your computer never suffers water damage ever again.

    model cleaning keyboard in a sink with soap and water

    Promising Review: "I've had this keyboard for 5+ years, would highly recommend. In use for 5+ years and going strong. I've spilled all kinds of stuff on it, washes right off. About to set up a second workstation for my home office, going to buy another one." —whentheanimals

    Get it from Amazon for $22.97.

    26. A waterproof mattress protector because that trendy mattress-in-a-box you just ordered is an investment worth protecting.

    model pouring a cup of coffee on mattress protector

    Promising review: "I am so glad I bought this item. With two small children in my house, spills are constantly happening. I just purchased a new mattress a couple months ago. I was looking for something to protect it. The mattress protector was on my bed no more than a week, when along comes my smallest child with a glass of apple juice. Cat runs under her feet. She trips, apple juice flies in the air. Guess what lands on my bed? The apple juice. A whole 8-oz glass of apple juice! A scramble to remove the covers and to my surprise, the mattress protector did its job — not one drop made it through to my newly purchased mattress." —Sally sue

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in twin-Cal king and two colors).

    27. And a robot vacuum that every notorious spiller needs in their kitchen. I literally can't think of anything worse than trying to clean up that entire bag of rice you accidentally unleashed all over the floor.

    reviewer photo of the iRobot on their hardwood floors

    Promising review: "Love, love, love this Roomba! We have three cats and it picks up all the cat hair. We have all wood and tile floors with some scatter rugs. It does a great job cleaning on all surfaces. Only negative, and I do not consider it a negative since we have three cats, is that we have to pause it a couple times during a cleaning cycle to empty the bin. Without the cat hair, it would do a whole cycle before emptying. We are seniors and it is so nice to sit in our recliners and have the Roomba do its job. Another plus is that it will connect to our echo dot and so all we have to do is say Alexa start the Roomba. Now if they make a model that can cook, we will be the first to buy it! LOL." —Floridamo

    Get it from Amazon for $229 (originally $279.99).
