    37 Products That Deserve An Award For All The Problems They'll Solve

    Public service announcement to anyone dealing with a painful sunburn right now: There are solutions for that in this post.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. The Pink Stuff, a TikTok-famous cleaning product so good, you may wanna part ways with every other cleaning product you own. Seriously, this amazing stuff can be used on a plethora of household items and surfaces (both indoors and outdoors).

    This awesome stuff can be used to clean like, a bajillion and one things, but note that it shouldn't be used on plastic or acrylic surfaces, highly polished stainless steel, or hot/warm surfaces, so of course, you can use it on cooktops and grills, just be sure to do so once they've cooled down! Plus, this is vegan!

    Promising review: "Oh my gosh — this stuff is a life changer! Used it to get my fiberglass shower totally clean. Nothing else would get it done and this stuff brought my shower back to near-new in one use. We’ve since cleaned a weird chalky film off our garage door, removed wall markings, and cleaned my storm door. We’ll never be without a jar (or three) of this stuff. Worth every penny." —Nancy F.

    Get it from Amazon for $5.97.

    2. A set of books that's actually not at all a set of books, but a storage box that can be used to hide messy tangles of wires or keep things like important documents, electronics, or jewelry out of sight. 

    Four photos which show how from the front, the display looks like a stack of books but from the back it's actually empty

    FYI — the photos above are just an example. You receive different books than what are shown in the product photos. You can opt to pay extra for a different length and a specific color scheme.

    Promising review: "This is perfect for hiding our router and accessories in our bookcase. Love it!" —supergirl

    Get it from Covogoods on Amazon Handmade starting at $29.

    3. Wet & Forget, a super simple cleaner you just spray in your shower/tub once a week. The best part? You don't have to all. Just rinse it the next day and you're good to go. I know, I know, I'm crying tears of joy, too. 

    Promising review: "We cannot BEGIN to tell you what a lifesaver this is! We have two old fiberglass tubs with vinyl shower enclosures that no matter what amount of scrubbing we have done with everything from bleach to cleanser to vinegar and baking soda would NOT come clean. After I took my shower last night, I sprayed down the tub and walls. Within minutes, all the built-up water deposits and dirt and grime began to melt away in front of my eyes. I left it on overnight, and when I got up this morning, it did not look like the same tub and shower. This product is a godsend, especially for old folks like us who have difficulty getting down on our hands and knees and scrubbing anything. More importantly, it performs as advertised. This is truly an overnight sensation!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.98.

    4. A bug bite suction tool to help get rid of itchy bites. Kinda rude that little buggies get to munch on our skin and blood and we have to deal with itchiness after.

    The bug bite suction tool

    This works by suctioning up insect venom, saliva, and other irritants under the skin, which in turn prevents your body from producing a reaction to said irritant.

    Promising review: "I am a magnet for bites of all kinds and carry topical and medicines with me at all times — so I figured this would be a good product to see if it really works. It arrived on Monday and on Tuesday morning I woke up with a bug bite on my arm. I used this little tool (3x per the instructions) and documented with photos. Immediately after using, it stopped itching! And less than 24 hours later the bump/bite was gone! There is a very faint red mark from using the thing but a small price to pay IMO. Bottom line: it’s awesome. I’m carrying it with me everywhere!" —Rebecca

    Get it from Amazon for $9.85.

    5. A jewelry cleaning pen that'll have your precious gems looking brand-new with a quick pen swipe.

    Promising review: "This product worked amazingly well and I’m very pleased with the results. My diamonds look brighter, clearer, and like they just got professionally cleaned. Don’t delay, just buy it. I wish I had sooner! The diamonds actually look like a better quality. I’m buying for everyone I know that loves their jewelry like I do." —SanDiegoPanda

    Get a it from Amazon for $8.05.

    6. An aloe and coconut oil after sun soothing cream formulated with a nourishing mix of aloe extract and coconut oil to hydrate sun-exposed skin and leave it feeling refreshed, moisturized, and itch-free after burning.

    Promising review: "Best product ever for sunburns! No peeling or itching. Simply amazing! The photos are four days apart." —Carrie

    Get it from Amazon for $7.69.

    7. Or if you prefer a spray over a cream, an after sun moisturizing spray made with vitamin E, French seaweed absolute, distilled water, calendula, lavender oil, sesame oil, geranium oil, roman chamomile oil, and sandalwood oil for a hydrating moisturizer that'll do a stellar job when it comes to soothing a sunburn.

    Promising review: "I love this stuff! It is super hydrating and is amazing for sunburns. Honestly, I use it everywhere, all the time. I love using it as an all natural face mist. The most affordable all natural essential oil-based spray I have found. I highly recommend this and will for sure be a repeat customer!" —Leanne

    Get it from Amazon for $22.95.

    8. A mold and mildew removal gel that'll make your bathroom surfaces look brand new. Mold and mildew are bound to happen, there's no need to fret!

    Promising review: "Wow! I would give this 10 stars if I could. We've had issues for a few years with the caulking behind the handle of our kitchen faucet turning black from mildew. We've scrubbed with what seems like a million different products, with no luck. We were actually just talking about ripping out the caulking and doing a total replacement. But, my husband saw this online the other day and decided to order it. Almost immediately when he applied it, you could see it was starting to work. We left it on overnight and the black is COMPLETELY GONE! It's incredible. 1,000% worth the (small) investment. Seriously — just buy this. It's amazing!!" —Nicole D.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    9. Sweat-absorbing bra liners for those who get as sweaty during their morning commute as they would have if they went to the gym before work. We get the struggle and we're here to help.

    Promising review: "I am a sweat-er and therefore it's very uncomfortable to sweat under your bra and then be wet. I am so happy with this product. No more being wet and having embarrassing sweat marks." —Lola

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95 (available in two colors).

    10. An automatic cleaning system that'll tidy your toilet with every flush — no scrubbing, no bleach, just go and flush! Each cartridge should last about three months so you won't have to worry about changing it often, either!

    Promising review: "I've used this product for a couple of years now and LOVE it! 'I love cleaning toilets,' said no one ever!! This is the answer to clean toilet bowls without having to scrub. Easy to use. Wish the refills were a little less expensive, but worth not having to scrub a toilet bowl." —Acorn

    Get it from Amazon for $10.77.

    11. Wireless headphone ear hooks — a must-have for anyone who is all too familiar with the struggle of their wireless earbuds constantly trying to plan their escape. They belong in your ear, not on the subway tracks.

    Promising review: "Overall works great. I do about 30 minutes of running each day and after I started sweating, my AirPods would start slipping out and I'd have to adjust them back into my ears constantly. This product works great and holds them in. They won't stay super tight in your ear necessarily, but they only move out a little over time. The difference for me was adjusting once during my workout instead of every two minutes while running. Highly recommend if you're looking to keep your AirPods in your ears during workouts." —ChrisW

    12. Wad-Free, a truly wonderful creation to stop bed sheets from getting all tangled and twisted in the washer and dryer. In turn, this will help ensure that your sheets, and the other items that frequently get caught in them, come out cleaner. I don't know about you, but I'm all too familiar with finding a soaking wet sock or shirt caught in the crevices of my bed sheets and having to put them back in the dryer and it's SO.VERY.ANNOYING!

    If you watch Shark Tank, then this product may look familiar to you! Kevin and Lori both made offers, but the founder picked Mr. Wonderful. These are reusable and BPA-free! Wad-Free is a woman-owned small biz!

    Promising review: "Wow!!! You wonder if things like this really work — well, I can absolutely confirm this does! I was impressed that the package came with two of the devices so there was one for the fitted sheet and the flat sheet. I tried it out and my sheets not only did NOT wad up, but they came out of the dryer feeling fresher, feeling more dry, and unwrinkled! I will be buying a set of these for each of my immediate family members and close friends! What a great gift!!!" —katy

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $19.99.

    13. And while we're on the subject of ways to make doing your laundry easier and more efficient — a Sock Dock because if you're anything like me, then you probably also have a very hungry washer/dryer that makes a meal out of your socks. Somehow, one sock always seems to go missing every time I do laundry! This handy tool will hold onto your socks, so you no longer have an excuse to wear mismatching socks and calling it a "trend." 

    Model holding the long wire SockDock with circles to attach socks, filled with sock pairs next to a washing machine

    Promising review: "This product is genius! I LOVE it!! Seriously, I hate putting my sock matches together, and as a wearer of colorful ones, it’s kind of important that I pair them up after the wash! Now I don’t have to! I would totally recommend this to anyone who hates playing the match game, or anyone who loses socks in the washing machine or dryer vortex!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in five colors).

    14. A windshield cover handy for whenever you park your car for long periods of time in the blistering heat. When it's time to hit the road, your car won't feel like the inside of a boiling pot of water and your legs won't stick to the seats like glue.

    And for the winter months, this thing will prevent you from having to spend all that extra time clearing snow and ice off your windshield!

    Promising review: "Bought this and used it all summer to keep my interior cool. Works really well to protect the dash from heat and keeps the interior much cooler on those scorching hot days. I can’t wait to use it this winter — I’m sure it will make clearing my windshield a breeze!" —Rj

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95.

    15. Earbud cleaning putty because in between your millionth audiobook listen of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and crying along to your zillionth stream of the 10 minute version of "All Too Well," you should give your headphones a much-needed clean from earwax and dust. 

    Promising review: "They work as advertised. I use them for my AirPods, iPhone, and iPad Pro." —Lydia Kimble-Wright

    Get 12 from Amazon for $11.99.

    16. A dog spot repair solution made from a combo of mulch, seed, and soil amendment that'll help repair damage (aka digging holes and waste) on your lawn caused by your furry monster friends. You deserve to have a house surrounded by green grass and not patches of dirt.

    Promising review: "I have lacrosse players and dogs and this stuff is amazing. My yard looked like an abandoned lot before this and it literally 'grew anywhere' just like it said. The bag I planted last year actually came back strong this year so I put more down and it is working like a dream!" —chchmom

    Get it from Amazon for $14.42+ (available in five sizes).

    17. Bed sheet fasteners so you can ensure your sheets actually stay in place, no matter how all over the place you are in your sleep. These will also make it easier and quicker to make your bed in the morning!

    Promising review: "I have a pillow-top and pillow-bottom queen-sized bed that is a little too small for king sheets and with queen sheets I have battled to keep the sheets from popping off. I have tried everything! I was about to try to customize some king sheets because it was so frustrating. Then I saw this product advertised on Facebook in one of those posts about the amazing products that people love. So I figured it was worth a try. It works. I was shocked. My sheets have not popped off once. I ordered this in February and it is May now — and they have not popped off once! They used to pop off EVERY...SINGLE...NIGHT. To say this is life changing is not an exaggeration. Such a relief to be able to sleep through the night without ending up in rumpled sheets." —TinkerbellAPixie

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in three colors and four sizes).

    18. Soundproof door strips for those whose bedroom currently doubles as a home office, and their "coworkers" (aka roomies, family members, and pets) are kinda noisy. These also help prevent cold air from escaping in the summer, and warmth from escaping in the winter, so you can save energy, too!

    Promising review: "Product works really well! I needed a quick fix to my home office situation. I live in an apartment in Manhattan and never noticed how much sound comes in and out until I had to be on conference calls working from home! This little tape made a big difference and took me only a couple of minutes to install." —Sandra Hernandez

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $8.57+ (available in four colors and two sizes).

    19. A privacy window film that'll help block up to 96% of UV rays and reduce up to 79% of glare, which may just help you save a little bit on energy bills! Plus, it looks a little like having your very own stained glass window and creates a beautiful rainbow effect on sunny days. So many reasons to buy this, so just do it already!

    Promising review: "I have a large window in my bathroom and you can see in from the backyard, not very private. I like the light but needed privacy, sheer curtains were not enough. This product is very easy to install, and I love the rainbows. This is this cheapest rainbow window cling I could find and it exceeded my expectations. I will definitely be doing more windows." —Ashley Barnes

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in 11 sizes).

    20. A portable carpet and upholstery cleaner — it boasts a strong spray and suction so cleaning stubborn stains will feel effortless. Messes left behind by pets or small children shouldn't mean permanently ruined carpets, furniture, or car interiors.

    Promising review: "I wish I would have ordered this sooner. It has removed stains that I thought were permanent. When my son moved out, I discovered an old red wine stain under his bedside table that had likely been there for years. No trace of it remains. So easy to use!" —Kristi Rector

    Get it from Amazon for $123.59.

    21. A thaw claw that'll help thaw frozen meat up to seven times quicker. If only this product had been around when I was in like...high school when my mom would ask me to take the chicken out of the freezer when I got home (which I almost always forgot to do until she got home from work, oops).

    Promising review: "A package of frozen meat would have taken at least two days to thaw in the fridge. I used this for a 2-pound package a couple of days ago, and the meat was thawed within 90 minutes. One of the most practical kitchen gadgets I own." —Llda Schellhase

    Get it from Amazon for $18.95 (available in four colors).

    22. A portable paper soap set to ensure you have soap on you at all times even if the restroom you're using doesn't have any. All you need is a little water to lather it into your hands and rinse it off, and you're good to go!

    several sheets of soap fanned out beside of the travel container

    Promising review: "Cute little containers that fit in your pocket. One piece lathers nicely. Great to have if traveling or just out and find yourself in a bathroom with no soap. Also great for campers." —Nicki

    Get a pack of 200 from Amazon for $8.99.

    23. Shout color catching sheets that'll help prevent dye transfers and color runs in the wash. Now you won't have to worry about a single red garment turning your white shirts pink.

    Promising review: "These Color Catcher sheets really protect colors from bleeding. It makes all clothes/laundry brighter and looking like new — not that old washed color after just one wash without these sheets. I give this product 5+ stars. Highly recommend. A few pennies spent additionally on your laundry makes one look like wearing new clothes all the time." —Nikita

    Get 72 sheets from Amazon for $11.53.

    24. Stasher scrunchies you can fill with your fav little on-the-go items like lip balm or cash, and wear around your wrist or tie into your hair.
