Ruined hats and bras, stained t-shirts, damp car seats, and chafing thighs can become an every day occurrence when the temperature starts to reach truly insulting new highs.

Luckily, sweaty people of the world have united to review and recommend these life-changing products that might just help you find some relief in this heat.

1. This highly rated anti-friction powder that's designed for thighs and butts that rub.

Promising review: "I just went to Central America and purchased this product to take with me. I used it for about a week before I went to make sure I would like it and can't say enough great things about this product. I applied it where I generally sweat or chafe (think bra band and chub rub!). This powder worked like magic and kept me feeling fresh and dry. I highly recommend it for any sweaty situations you might find yourself in." —Jennifer SimpsonGet it from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in two flavors and two sizes).

2. And this super-popular powder gel that will provide relief to anyone who experiences chafing.

Promising review: "This stuff is AMAZING! I bought it to use on vacation in Florida, knowing I would be wearing shorts and a bathing suit. I have sensitive skin and easily get that 'chub rub' but this stuff made by legs glide against each other like velvet. It lasted for several hours and I didn't break out in uncomfortable red bumps on my inner thighs like I normally do after shaving and wearing shorts. I would HIGHLY recommend this gel!" —Kaci DeMaegdGet it from Amazon for $5.98.

3. This waterproof slip that will protect your car seat from sweat after tough workouts or, you know, short walks outside.

Promising review: "My wife is great and unfortunately is also great at sweating during exercise. I gave this to her to protect her leather seats after she does a spin or step class. It's not bulky and stays where you lay it on the seat because the underside is a thin rubberized membrane with little dimples. It goes on easy and is thin enough to roll up and toss behind the seat without taking up a lot of space. I'm going to buy one for my daughter who plays tennis and one for myself." —William T DietzGet it from Amazon for $27.99 (available in four colors).

4. This antiperspirant foot lotion that helps prevent blisters and will put an end to sweaty, smelly feet.

Promising review: "I suffer from hyperhidrosis, and it's embarrassing to have super sweaty pits and feet. I've tried several different deodorants, antiperspirants, and home remedies on my feet, but none of them seemed to minimize my foot sweat without making my feet look or feel dry and cracked despite daily pumicing. Nothing I tried actually controlled the sweatiness of my feet, until I discovered Carpe. Just a small amount has stopped my feet from sweating, even during hot yoga (!!!), and my feet still feel and look soft and smooth." —C.AndrewsGet it from Amazon for $14.95.

5. This natural stain remover that can make all those yellow marks on your white T-shirts disappear for good.

Promising review: "I had some super nasty dress shirts that I was about to throw away. No matter how much I washed them, my antiperspirant deodorant was caked up inside the armpits and actually smelled like someone with rank armpits just took it off (not me certainly?!). Imagine you take your newly cleaned shirt out of the dryer and go to iron it, when the steam hits the pit you smell some FUNK...the pits were so bad that they actually looked like they were sweaty and dark from all the caked up deodorant — this was my situation before buying this cleaner. I put two squirts of this stuff under each armpit and rubbed for about 15 seconds, then I tossed all the shirts on the floor for the night, still wet. The next morning I washed them all using Puracy laundry detergent. When I took them out of the dryer I couldn't believe it that the shirts looked and smelled brand new in just one treatment! I love this stuff." —Don KGet it from Amazon for $11.99.

6. This lubricating cream with over 1,000 reviews that was formulated for cyclists, but will work wonders on any hard-working butt.

Promising review: "Where has this been all of my riding life?! I always get so sore when riding for four hours or more. Using the chammy butter doesn't fully eliminate the grumbles, but it sure comes close. It has totally improved my recovery time and workouts, since I am not in pain for days after my long rides." —David J.Get it from Amazon for $12.27.

7. These antibacterial bra liners that are made from bamboo and cotton, and protect your bras on your sweatiest day.

Promising review: "This product is awesome! I was having itchy, rashy uncomfortable skin in the summer heat. These really do wick the moisture away to keep you dry and your skin healthy!

They are unnoticeable under clothes, though I tend to not wear extremely tight fitting shirts." —Julie WortzGet a pack of three from Amazon for $14.95.
