    31 Problem-Solving Items From Target For The Annoying Little Issues You Pretend Don't Exist

    These helpful finds will solve problems you didn't even know you had.

    1. A 24-count set of Mighty Patch pimple stickers to help heal those pesky bumps *and* keep you from picking at your skin. Best for oily, combination or acne-prone skin, these patches can be worn during the day without drawing too much attention to themselves. So no need to keep staring in the mirror and frowning at that red pimple that, of course, popped up in the middle of the night. 👏

    2. An Oster cordless/rechargeable wine bottle opener that will make you want to buy more bottles of wine just so you can test it out! The foil cutter easily removes seals, and the push button removes the cork in seconds. You'll never again have to worry about fighting with a wine corkscrew, or frantically googling how to open a bottle with weird household items. *Sigh of relief.*

    3. A cut-and-keep produce saver so you can keep your fruits and veggies fresh for WAY longer.

    4. A flexible vent brush, because no one wants to be constantly sneezing from the air coming out of your nasty, dusty vents (sorry). The short nylon brushes are perfect for those super hard-to-reach spots, and work on multiple surfaces. You can use them clean the lint trap in your dryer and your AC vent, along with plenty of other places. Watching those cleaning TikToks might actually pay off, huh?
