    60 Things To Help You Solve Some Of The Confusing Problems You Encounter

    No more fumbling with tiny necklace clasps, dragging your pet's toys out from under the couch, or detangling sheets that are still wet out of the dryer.

    1. A pack of bedsheet suspenders so you can cinch those bed corners tight and keep your sheets and mattress pad from sliding right off the bed, especially if you (or your bedmate) tend to toss and turn at night.

    2. An all-in-one Hang-O-Matic picture hanging tool designed to make hanging things a breeze — it comes with sliding pins so you can mark where you need to place holes and ensure they'll be level so you don't have to do the walk of shame back and try again.

    3. A far-reaching dryer vent lint brush capable of getting deeeep in there to scoop out all that gross trapped lint clogging your vents.

    4. A very handy bottle of Wine Away red wine stain remover so you don't have to panic the next time you or a guest knocks a glass of red wine over! Just spray this onto the affected clothing or carpet, let it sit for five minutes, then blot the area until the stain disappears (or, for clothing, toss it into the washer).

    5. A reusable ChomChom Roller Dog Hair Remover if pet hair has taken over your entire home and no matter how hard you try to clean it, there's always a little bit left over. The ChomChom roller doesn't mess with sticky tapes or paper; instead, you get a reusable brush that grabs up every bit of hair and lint as you clean — just empty it out after, and you're good to go again!

    6. A very handy Instant Pot Magnetic Cheat Sheet Set filled with extremely useful information — like cooking times and liquid ratios — so you don't have to stop in the middle of cooking to Google "orzo water ratio" or "how to cook frozen shrimp."

    7. An eco-friendly oven scrub, because that baked-on grease and food from years ago is no match for this all-natural paste. It's handmade with a blend of plant- and mineral-derived ingredients, like eucalyptus, lemon, and peppermint essential oils; pumice stone; and baking soda.

    8. A set of NoNo Brackets that make mounting curtains a breeze — just attach these to the top of your existing blinds, and you won't have to drill any holes.

    9. A jigsaw puzzle roll mat so you can safely stash that 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle you're working on and reclaim your kitchen table for dinner — then unroll it and get right back to work where you left off.

    10. clear toy blocker to stop all your pet's toys and balls from *immediately* ending up underneath the couch and other furniture, putting an end to one of the most annoying pet owner chores: going around and "rescuing" their toys for them. And because it's made of durable plastic, it's not something they'll be able to rip up and destroy either!

    It can also help discourage them from hiding under furniture!

    Promising reviews: "WISH I WOULD HAVE FOUND THIS YEARS AGO FOR MY DOGS! I recently bought it because my 11-month-old is constantly throwing stuff and pushing things under couch. I was able to install this while the baby was climbing all over me and haven't had any problems with adhesive. Also keeps my two small dogs from hiding their bones and toys under the couch! Perfectly invisible. Literally life changing! I can finally throw away self-made blockers, which were pool noodles that always moved." —Crystal K

    "A must-have for ALL pet owners. This contraption is genius and will save cat (and dog) owners insane amounts of time and frustration retrieving toys. We used this beneath our oven and it works PERFECTLY. Cat can't destroy it (the way she shredded the foam insulation we had stuffed under there before) and we no longer have to get the yardstick out when literally all of her toys are 'gone.' Yes, this is a challenge to install, but 100% worth it. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat." —Allison Goldstein

    Get it from Amazon for $13.98+ (available in three sizes).

    11. A pack of Glandex Dog Wipes, which (as the name suggests) are made for gently cleaning and deodorizing your pup's anal glands if they could use a little extra help with their rear end area. You can use these on cats too!

    12. An easily installed TV wall mount if the whole concept of studs and anchors is something you can't quite wrap your head around — with just some small nails and about 10 minutes, you'll have your mount ready to go, capable of holding TVs up to 55 inches!

    13. A bottle of Ambi Skincare fade cream designed to gradually fade dark spots (whether it's from acne, sun overexposure, or inflammation) to give you an even skin tone. It's formulated with hydroquinone, a dermatologist-recommended ingredient that lightens dark spots, along with vitamin E and alpha hydroxy acid.

    14. A bottle of Mavala Stop nail biting deterrent — it'll taste nasty (but it's totally harmless) so every time you put your fingers to your mouth, you'll want to take them away immediately.

    15. A pack of Miracle-Gro plant food spikes if your leafy green friends keep dying or aren't showing much growth despite your diligent watering. Just plop these into the soil, and they'll feed each plant with essential nutrients they need to ~thrive~ for up to two months!

    16. A genius Pop Up Pet Door designed to be set up between your wall and a sliding glass door, providing easy access for dogs or cats to go in and out without scratching at the door every 10 minutes to get your attention. It'll keep the heat (or cold) and bugs out too!

    17. A guided gallery wall kit that takes all the guesswork out of arranging pictures. You'll get seven frames of different sizes, all the hanging hardware you need, and (most importantly) a template to follow so you know exactly where to put each nail.

    18. An adjustable back stretcher and lumbar support device so you can finally find relief from that lingering back pain. It features four settings that'll fully (and gently) stretch your lower back and relieve all that tension you've been building up.

    19. A set of washer and dryer bedsheet detanglers because you're tired of pulling your bedding out of the machine, only to find that part of it is balled up, wet, dirty, and wrinkly. This prevents your sheets from tangling and twisting during wash/dry cycles so they come out clean and dry the first time.

    20. A set of hoodie hangers so you can finally organize all those hoodies you've collected (and reclaim that chair they've been living on) and hang them up in an easily accessible way.

    21. A motion-activated spray deterrent if you have a cat who just LOOOOVES to scratch your bedroom door at night or yank on the door handle (truly the loudest, most irritating sound ever). When it detects their presence within 3 feet, it'll release a harmless spray to scare them off and (hopefully) teach them to avoid the area.

    It's a somewhat pricey solution, but if you're someone who can't get a good night's sleep because of your cat's late-night antics, this might just put an end to your issue for good. Note that it uses four AAA batteries to operate.

    Promising review: "What it won't work for: keeping animals out of open areas. They can sprint past it and it won't register until they're gone. This spray senses heat more than motion, so the heat of the animal needs to register before it'll spray. What it'll work for: keeping animals away from objects or locations that you don't want them near. It'll keep them away from an area you don't want them to scratch or sit on. We close our bedroom door at night. Our cats' new 'game' was to jiggle our door handle in the middle of the night until one of us woke up and told them to knock it off. Then they would wait and do it again in an hour. Cats, am I right?! I came across this and read reviews and decided that it should work for what we need. We close the door at night, and place this beside our door frame so that it sprays when they're approaching and getting ready to jiggle the door. It works for us, and it may work for you if you're needing it for a similar situation." —Jesse Byahhh

    Get it from Amazon for $42.95 (replacement cans available for $16.95).

    22. And a versatile Katzco Furniture Repair Kit to address that scratched-up door your pet has unleashed its claws on or scratched-up chair that's been bumped into one too many times. The kit includes six wood markers and six wax sticks so you can find the closest color match to the type of wood you have.

    23. A handy heat-resistant chopper that'll make quickly breaking up the meat for your spaghetti a quick and easy task so it cooks evenly.

    24. A pack of bra strap clips if your bra straps frequently like to slip and slide right down your shoulders. These hold everything in place to put an end to that nagging issue — a major plus for all those summer tank tops.

    25. A heat-resistant silicone holster to give your hot tools a dedicated storage spot that's easily accessible, out of the way, and space-efficient (so you're not cluttering up a drawer). It uses a patented cling technology so you can reposition and apply it to any clean, dry surface, and the silicone can withstand temps up to 500 degrees!

    26. A terra-cotta bear that'll become your BFF if you're a baker — essentially, it maintains the proper moisture level to keep your brown sugar from turning into a hard and unusable brick over time, *and* it can soften sugar that's already gone hard.

    27. BluApple freshness saver balls you can toss into your crisper drawers, fruit bowl, or anywhere else you store produce — each "apple" has a packet in it that absorbs ethylene gas to slow down ripening time drastically. And each packet lasts three months!

    28. A very handy universal waterproof cellphone pouch so your next watery adventure doesn't mean the end for your iPhone, Galaxy, Pixel, or whatever phone you have. Now you can take pictures while you're out swimming, kayaking, or tubing without worrying about your phone getting splashed or dropping into the water (because you can wear this around your neck too!).

    29. A sterling silver magnetic clasp converter if you're tired of struggling with that tiny little clasp on your favorite necklace or bracelets, especially if you have arthritis or long nails. Just clip this on, and your jewelry will fasten magnetically from here on out!

    30. A nylon (so it's nonstick-safe) colander strainer that lets you scoop, drain, and serve food straight from the pot without having to pick up a hot, heavy pan. It's designed with discreet hooks so it can rest stably on top of the pot while draining.

    31. A pair of heel stoppers so you can finally wear that new pair of heels without worrying about them sinking into grass or gravel. A true lifesaver for all those outdoor weddings.

    32. A handy little reminder that'll make sure Fido isn't missing any meals — or getting overfed — when the whole family is in charge of feeding the dog.

    33. An awesome lid organizer so you can finally sort your small, medium, and large lids into separate compartments and *actually* find the one you're looking for without getting on your knees and digging around.

    34. An under-door draft stopper to slide under a door or place in a window to put an end to that pesky draft you keep feeling as you walk by *and* keep out noise as well as heat or cold.

    35. A stainless-steel bottle sealer so you don't feel obligated to finish off that entire bottle of champagne when you just want a single mimosa for brunch. This seals in all the fizz so your bubbly isn't flat next time you go for a drink!
