    35 Creative Problem-Solving Products That Are Blowing My Mind Right Now

    Maybe you've heard of some of these, maybe you haven't. Either way, we can agree they're awesome.

    1. Some silicone dish scrubbers that'll get your pots and pans clean as a whistle — and double as hand protectors, too! Thanks to the soft bristles, you'll be able to scrub away caked-on grime, without damaging non-stick cookware. And unlike regular sponges, these don't trap gross particles and become a breeding ground for germs. Plus, they're easy to disinfect!

    2. These stylish earplugs that are specially designed to retain sound clarity while filtering out harmful or damaging frequencies. Reviewers use them during loud events, while roading motorcycles, or even at home with a rowdy bunch of kids, and say they help protect their hearing without completely deafening the user.

    3. This non-stick ice cream scoop, so you can get yourself some delicious frosty dessert without spraining your wrist. Not only does it have a non-stick coating, but the handle is filled with a defrosting fluid that keeps ice cream from clinging to your scoop.

    4. This dry sunscreen face powder that'll give you the coverage of makeup with the protection of sunscreen. That's me, rockin' the sunscreen — no white cast and no greasiness, and it even covers up blemishes, too! It's even great for kids, and since application is a breeze, you won't have to keep them sitting still for long.

    5. This toilet brushwith an attached rim cleaner that'll get your porcelain throne looking brand new. Reviewers love that the silicone bristles don't retain odours, and say they're gentle enough to keep the coating scratch free.

    6. This shower wine caddy, so you can enjoy your favourite glass of vino while you perform your ablutions. When applied properly, this baby can hold up to seven pounds of liquid — it even works on mugs and bottles, so go ahead and get creative.

    7. A floating tech strap that'll ensure you never lose another gizmo at the beach or while camping ever again. It's designed for binoculars, cameras, or other small tech, and slips neatly onto your wrist. Reviewers say the vivid colours make it easy to spot wayward items, and have even used it to attach a swim bag to when they're snorkeling.

    8. This all-natural shoe deodorizing spray that'll give your fetid footwear a refreshing new lease on life. The blend of peppermint and eucalyptus not only helps to naturally eliminate odours, but can also be used to re-energize tired feet. BRB while I buy 27 bottles for myself.

    9. This magnetic wristband that'll help make home renovation projects a lot less stressful. It's packed with 15 magnets that are so strong, they'll even hold small tools — like screwdrivers, pliers, or wrenches. Plus, the whole thing is waterproof so it's great for outdoor projects, too.

    10. This rubber pet hair removal brush, because we love our pets but the piles of hair are just 😒😒😒. The rubber bristles don't just fling dander and fur around, either — they grip it and snag it, making short work of pet clean-up. Plus, the brush is designed to be effective on all kinds of surfaces without scratching off dye or colour.

    11. This workout-enhancing cream that'll help boost muscle activity during your next sweat sesh. Think of it like a personal trainer just for your muscles — it'll help increase circulation, and promote sweat during exercise, so your workouts are more effective. And since your muscles will be all warmed up, there's less chance you'll accidentally injure yourself, too.

    12. This long-armed back scrubber with super soft bristles that'll help you suds up those hard-to-reach areas. Reviewers love the extra long handle, saying it can even be used as a back scratcher or lotion applicator!

    13. This anti-blister balm that'll keep chafing, rubbing, and raw skin at bay. The sweat and moisture resistant formula won't clog your pores, or slip off if it's extra hot out (aka every single day this summer). Plus, it goes on smooth and dry, which means you don't have to wait to put on socks or shoes, either!

    14. This bottle drying rack that's designed to keep baby bottles, pacifiers, and breast pump parts from getting gross and mildewy. Don't have a wee one? No worries. It's also fantastic for travel mugs, reusable water bottles, and even French presses.

    15. A special clothes hanger that's designed to save you a TON of space in your closet — and also finally give you a place to put your belts, ties, and scarves. Some reviewers have even used it for hanging tank tops!

    16. A waterproof picnic basket that's packed with everything you need to spend a lovely afternoon in the park — I'm talking porcelain plates, stainless steel cutlery, wine glasses, and even a waterproof blanket to protect against damp glass. Leather handles make it easy to carry, and the inside is loaded with straps designed to hold every thing in place.

    17. This collapsible drinking straw kit that's all neatly encased in a rose gold keychain. This stainless steel number is great for every size of drink — from lil' 12-ounce cups to the big momma 40-ounce ones. And since they're made of metal (and not silicone) they won't absorb flavours, either.

    18. A little LED-equipped pen that'll help you take down notes in low-light environments, and even comes with an emergency flashlight hidden in the end — y'know, just in case. Reviewers say they're awesome for jotting down dreams or ideas in the middle of the night (without waking up your partner).

    19. This curved lotion applicator that'll make moisturizing your nooks and crannies a lot easier. The curved, banana-like design means you don't have to be an Olympic gymnast to moisture your back, or cover it in sunscreen. Reviewers say it's also great for anyone with shoulder or back injuries!

    20. An mattifying facial roller that will help give your skin a velvety matte finish in seconds. The secret is the volcanic stone that actually sucks up all the oils on your skin's surface while you roll it over your face. And reviewers love that it's an environmentally-friendly alternative to classic blotting sheets!

    21. This body shaver that'll help eliminate unwanted fuzz — especially in those hard-to-reach areas. It works wet or dry, and it even has a special safety guard to prevent unpleasant razor burn.

    22. A pet bathing tool that'll make your pupper's bathtime a lot less stressful (for both you and your pet). Your doggo will think you're petting them, but IN REALITY, you'll be giving them a thorough scrubbin'.

    23. A USB-powered charging hub that'll charge up to four devices at once. The bamboo design is sturdy and minimal, and each section is lined in microfibre to protect your tech while it powers up. And reviewers love that it also helps prevent clutter and tangled cables!

    24. This bidet attachment that'll give your bum a spritz of fresh, clean water after you're finished doing your business. It fits easily over your existing ivory throne so you don't have to do any costly renovations. Plus, it takes up minimal space — awesome for tiny bathrooms and powder rooms!

    25. Some waterproof hydrocolloid bandages that will actually help blisters, cuts, minor burns and scratches heal faster. I LOVE that they have a cushioned gel pad which helps to prevent pain and further chafing. And since they keep things protected and clean, your skin can actually focus on repairing itself.

    26. A wooden book holder, so you can prop open your favourite tomes without straining your wrist or hands. The slim design is super lightweight, and is great for anyone who likes to read during their lunch break — now you don't have to choose between holding your sandwich or flipping the page! And reviewers say it's made reading to their kids a lot easier, too.

    27. This mini steam iron that'll work just as effectively as its full-size counterpart — without taking up all the space. This baby heats up in just 15 seconds, which is awesome if you're halfway out the door and realize that your shirt is unforgivably wrinkly.

    28. This neat little citrus reamer that'll help juice all your fruits (without unleashing the scourge of seeds into all your food). The colander-like catcher stops seeds and pith from invading your food, while draining all the delicious citrus flavour.

    29. This handbag clip, so you can hang your bag literally anywhere. I'm not joking — the circular design opens right up so you can clip your purse to the edge of a shower stall, onto a patio table, the handle of a stroller, or anywhere else you need. Plus, it has rubber padding on both edges to keep it from slipping and sliding.

    30. A Scrubbing Bubbles toilet stamp that'll keep your porcelain throne looking (and smelling) fresh as a daisy, while minimizing chore time in the process. And it's super easy to use, too — just stamp it into your toilet bowl and get on with your business!

    31. These ice pop pouches, so you can make your own freezies this summer. Using them couldn't be any easier — just blend up your favourite mix of fruits (and booze, if you're feeling spicy), and pour into the resealable sleeves.

    32. A stainless steel roll-up kitchen rack that'll help with dish drying and kitchen prep, without taking up all your precious counter space. The sturdy design has rubber tips to keep it locked in place, and when you're done, just roll it up and stash away!

    33. A couple of beauty product spatulas, so you can get the most out of all your fave skincare. There's nothing worse than tossing out a container with TONS of product still left in it!

    34. This highly-rated hair finishing cream that'll help you corral all those wispy baby hairs into place, and give your mane a polished look. Even people with short hair, like me, can benefit — even though I can't wear my hair up, God help me if I blow dry my hair wrong! This lil' tube helps bust Alfalfa hair like nobody's business.

    35. And finally, an antimicrobial button pusher that'll help you open doors, press the elevator buttons, and use ATMs without actually using your fingers. This slim tool is designed to attach right to your key ring, so chances are you won't lose it, either.

    Annoying daily problems? I don't know her.
