    31 Problem-Solving Products Future You Will Be Grateful For

    When future you is stressed, a mess, and needs help getting dressed, these products will come in handy.

    1. A memory foam orthopedic knee pillow to help reduce back strain, align your spine, promote better circulation, and alleviate pressure on your knees, especially for side sleepers. You'll feel like a brand-new person when you wake up the next morning pain-free for the first time in forever.

    2. A weighted blanket for helping reduce your anxiety so you can feel well-rested sometime this decade. This specific weighted blanket comes with two covers: one that'll keep hot sleepers cool and another that'll retain heat so you're cozy and warm.

    3. A pack of air purifying bags that'll absorb any questionable odors that are coming from your shoes overnight, because there's nothing more awkward than walking into work the next day trying to figure out where the stink is coming from...and then realizing it's you.

    4. A hair finishing stick for cleaning up all those random strands that escape from ponytails and buns. You'll thank me for buying this when you're running late and need to tidy your look.

    5. A blackhead remover vacuum with a powerful head to suction up blackheads, whiteheads, grease, and leftover makeup the night before a big first date that you *will* have clear skin for. It comes with four different attachments for all your skincare needs, as well as five suction levels so you can clear up your skin without painful blackhead-removing strips.

    6. A natural shoe deodorizer spray so you can slip into fresh-smelling shoes in the morning. It's made with essential oils and smells like lemon and eucalyptus so you'll probably want to spray it around the rest of your house.

    7. A pack of foaming garbage disposal cleaner to deodorize your sink. Reviewers say it'll take you less than five minutes, which is perfect for when your dinner party guests are about to arrive and you realize your drains smell like rotting fish.

    8. A collagen-coating hair treatment that'll make next-day bedhead a thing of the past. It's safe for all hair types and will revitalize a mane that's dry, damaged, and overprocessed. Waking up with frizz-free hair? Umm, yes please!

    9. A beeswax wood polisher for reviving your dinged and dented cabinets and table. A quick massage will restore your hardwoods before your parents come over so you convince them that you're a real adult not living in filth and squalor.

    10. A Cuisinart compact blender, because you ignored too many of your bank account's polite pleas to stop spending money on $10 smoothies. This lil' guy will help you whip up your morning shake at home in mere minutes. Plus, it's teeny tiny so it won't take up precious counter space in your tiny apartment.

    11. An acne patch for those days when a pimple pops up at the *worst* possible moment. Hydrocolloid, tea tree oil, and calendula oil are gentle on the skin while still drawing out fluids and pus from your pimple.

    12. A dishwasher cleaning tablets so you can run the dishwasher tonight and open it tomorrow to see sparkling dishes. No more having to wash your dishes and plates again by hand because they're coated in mysterious white crusty bits.

    13. A stainless steel tongue scraper to banish bad bacteria and improve stinky breath so you won't suffer the embarrassment of someone offering you a breath mint.

    14. A pack of foil lids so you can reuse Nespresso pods and save money. Single-serve coffee pods are great when you're only making a cup for yourself, but they can be pretty costly. These foil seals fit in any Nespresso VertuoLine coffee maker maximize the amount of times you can use each pod.

    15. A tube of antiperspirant hand cream to dry your hands if you suffer from hyperhidrosis (excess sweating), or you're nervous and dreading the handshake before your job interview.

    16. A cooktop cleaner that'll lift baked-on crud so your guests won't know that the last time you cleaned the stove was...the last time they visited your house. This kit comes with a bottle of cleaner, a sponge, and a scraper — everything you need.

    17. A dandruff shampoo so you can banish white flakes from your scalp ASAP. It's made with ketoconazole 1%, an antifungal ingredient that'll tell your dandruff it's no longer welcome here.

    18. A cuticle oil that'll restore your shredded nails after a gel mani. A combination of sweet almond oil, vitamin E, and jojoba softens the cuticle and strengthens your claws so you'll be proud to show them off.

    19. A jewelry-cleaning pen to make your jewels sparkle so you can stop spending $$$ getting them professionally polished. It's compact enough to fit in your purse so you can use it on the go, yet it's powerful enough to clean days', months', and weeks' worth of dirt and grime that's dulled your stones' shine.

    20. A pack of stain-removing pads that'll handle the inevitable messes that come with drunkenly ordering Chinese food at 1 a.m. and mistakenly believing you're sober enough to use chopsticks. Just press the pad onto a stain, let it sit, and remove in a few hours to a clean carpet. (These are made for pet stains, but they work just as well on wine, coffee, soda, and even blood.)

    21. A Chi automatic curling iron, because you don't have time in the mornings to remember which strands you curled clockwise and which ones were curled counterclockwise. Just dip your hair in the chamber and let this bad boy do *all* the work for you.

    22. A box of wart-removing pads that you apply like bandages so you can be rid of your extra growth before your big handshake with the boss at next week's company-wide meeting. Be gone, appendage!

    23. A handheld steamer so you can de-wrinkle your outfit for tomorrow *tonight* instead of waking up early to iron it. Trust me, that extra 15 minutes of sleep is gonna feel so worth it.

    24. A mold and mildew remover that'll finally free you of those unsightly black splotches on your tile grout that semi gross you out...but not enough to actually clean.

    25. An antifungal tea tree balm for treating basically any somewhat embarrassing skin condition you can think of: athlete's foot, ringworm, jock itch, and even just dry skin. Nothing — not even a foot fungus — is going to stand between you and bare feet on your upcoming tropical vacation (v jealous!!).

    26. A leather cleaning brush, because we all know the pain of ruining a beloved pair of suede shoes in the rain and mud. This superstar can be used four different ways to clean scuff marks, water spots, and invisible dust.

    27. A jetted tub cleaner so you can feel a little less guilty about missing this area in your weekly deep clean. This cleanser is made to flush out soap scum, body oils, and those black flakes that gunk up your tub's jets.

    28. A pair of copper-infused arch supports that'll support your feet without hindering your range of motion, because you're always complaining about your feet aching (oh my god, I'm becoming my dad). Reviewers swear by them for combatting pain from fallen arches, flat feet, bunions, heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, and arthritis.

    29. A fabric defuzzer for cleaning up all the lint, pilling, and fuzz that's magically accumulated on your favorite sweater the night before you want to wear it. It has three settings so you can choose how close of a shave you want as well as a handy lint catcher.

    30. A set of kegel weights to not only help with incontinence but also potentially make sex easier, less painful, and more enjoyable. These are especially great for people who've just given birth, though anyone can benefit from strengthening their pelvic floor muscles.

    31. A pet hair remover for anyone loves their fur baby but also loves not having their outfit ruined by sitting on a furry chair. Roll it over your couch, bed, favorite blanket, you name it, and watch it lift the fur away. See, we can own nice things!!
