    30 Problem-Solving Products That We’re Thankful Someone Thought Of

    Including a bacon sponge, a toilet seat lifter, and a container that keeps your guac fresh for days.

    1. A Scrubbing Bubbles toilet cleaning stamp to polish your toilet with each flush, which means you don't have to spend 15 minutes this weekend scrubbing and scrubbing...and scrubbing. The stamp releases the cleaning gel, which foams and cleans your toilet.

    2. A flexible, silicone kitchen sink organizer that'll neatly hold your sponge, dish soap, hand soap, and more. (I can't be the only one who gets annoyed when my roommate leaves a wet sponge just sitting on the counter!) And it wipes clean since it's made of silicone so you don't have to worry about yucky mold and mildew.

    3. A bottle of hard water booster powder because your mugs look like the one on the left (aka cloudy) and you want them to look like the mug on the right (aka nice and shiny).

    4. A gel dust cleaner so you can say goodbye to that annoying crumb that's stuck between your R and T keys. Smushing this lemon-scented slime on your keyboard is weirdly soothing and the end result is dust-free keys.

    5. An electrical outlet cover with a power strip if you're tired of cluttered cords being an eyesore. It's also pretty great if you want to push your furniture right up against the wall but can't because your phone charger adapter is in the way.

    6. Or a right angle plug adapter for anyone who needs extra outlets and who also doesn't want to deal with bent, frayed cables when they push their coffee maker right up to the wall.

    7. A beeswax wood polisher to revive your dinged and dented cabinets and table. This is a heck of a lot cheaper than actually replacing them, and using it on a regular basis can actually help keep the wood hydrated so it lasts longer.

    8. A toilet seat lifter that'll save you from having to actually touch what's probably a very dirty toilet seat. It may also encourage your partner or roommate to actually lower the seat when they're done can hope!

    9. A mold and mildew remover because you can set it, forget it, and come back in a few hours to see grout that looks like new. I'm talking basically every speck of black mold is gone! *Cues up "Do You Believe in Magic"*

    10. A satin-lined rain hat so you can give mother nature a figurative middle finger when she decides it's gonna be rainy but you spent a lot of time on your hair.

    11. A two-tier no-drill corner shower caddy if you're tired of playing Tetris on your shower's ledges with your toiletries.

    12. A pumice cleaning stone for powering through tough rust, lime, and calcium streaks that have retired many a toilet scrubbing brush. Give your tired arms a break and let this little guy rub away discoloration with ease. This nontoxic cleaner is tough on dirt but gentle on porcelain so you can sit atop the glistening throne you deserve.

    13. A bacon sponge to absorb excess grease without requiring single-use paper towels. Just soak these polyester and organic cotton cloths in hot water and a degreasing soap to keep them clean.

    14. A dishwasher-safe fat skimmer ladle that'll separate that off-putting layer of floating fat and grease from your soups and stews.

    The ladle full of grease

    15. A pack of lobe support patches because it's time to pull out those earrings you've shoved in the back of your jewelry box because they're too heavy. These stickers take the weight off of your ear hole so it doesn't appear stretched and your earrings don't droop.

    16. A handmade moisturizing bar so you can pamper your parched skin with a whole lotta moisturizing ingredients. It's made with Mexican botanicals, plant butters, and oils that'll deeply hydrate your skin and make you say, "Winter who?"

    17. A plant-based stainless-steel cleaner and polish if your fridge has been covered in smudges and fingerprints for so long that you've forgotten how beautiful and shiny it once was. Reviewers say it helps keep your surfaces smudge free for longer, meaning less cleaning for you!

    18. A Dyson purifying heater and fan for anyone who wants warm *and* clean air without having to buy an expensive air purifier and heater separately. This does the job of both devices plus it's a fan so you're really getting your money's worth!

    19. A Nuele hair serum to grant you the soft, smooth, moisturized, tangle-free hair you've always wished for. Made of five nourishing oils — jojoba, argan, moringa, rosemary, and clary sage — this potent formula is great for all hair types and textures.

    20. A 3D-printed AeroPress organizer that'll neatly store your AeroPress, filters, filter cap, scoop, and stirrer without taking up too much counter space.

    21. The ~Guac-Lock~ because you love guac but know that you won't finish the whole avocado by yourself. This container pushes out the air that causes your avos to oxidize so you can enjoy guac and mashed avocados for toast for days without browning.

    22. A grooming rake so you can loosen fur and lighten your dog's undercoat and prevent future mats. This brush is specifically designed for pooches with thick, dense fur or double coats.

    23. A pack of hanging vacuum bags if you're already dreading having to store all your heavy winter coats come March. With these bags, you can vacuum all the air out so they take up a fraction of your closet space. And you can do this while they're on the hanger instead of trying to fold and smush them in a regular vacuum bag.

    24. A gynecologist-created panty wash for deep cleaning your undies without using harsh chemicals that can irritate a vagina.

    Bottles of the detergent

    25. An under-cabinet drawer that slides out(!!) to tidy up the cleaners, sponges, wipes, brushes, and rags that are currently a jumbled mess in the cabinet under your sink.

    A reviewer pulls out their drawer to reveal three sponges, four magic erasers, two handheld scrub brushes, one dish brush, four folded dish cloths, and a folded drying pad all neatly arranged

    26. A pack of stain-removing pads that'll make you feel like you're taking the lazy way out of dealing with pet messes. Just place it on a stain — pee, poop, vomit, and even wine spills — and stomp. Then watch the spot disappear!

    27. An immunity-boosting allergy supplement because your doggo deserves relief from their allergies and skin sensitivities. These soft chews deliver a dose of probiotics and other nutrients to help improve immune function, aide digestion, promote healthy skin, and add shine to a dog's coat.

    28. A dryer lint brush so you can clean out your lint trap — I mean really clean it — since your fingers won't do the trick. It's also great for dislodging lint that's in the dryer vent pipe, which is a fire hazard.

    29. Some oven rack guards if you've definitely singed your wrist before from accidentally brushing against a hot oven rack. They're made from the same material that protects firefighters and race car drivers from burns and easily snap close around the rack.

    30. A mounted brush for satisfying your cat's ceaseless demands for scritches. Just mount it to a corner with the included adhesive strips and watch as your beloved babies leave you for the warm embrace of this gray and white piece of plastic.
