    51 Products That Should Win A Prize For Solving Some Problems

    And "The Most Helpful Award" goes to...all of these products.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. 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. A spill stopper that'll stop the pasta from boiling over behind your back because you're tired of scrubbing the stovetop (yet again!).

    The stopper in red
    Amazon

    It's made of heavy silicone that's heat-resistant up to 400 degrees and microwave- and dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "Works great. I got it as a Mother's Day gift for my mom since she's always boiling stuff over. Especially when family is over, the house is busy and she forgets about it and next thing you know, water is all over and then she has to scrub the stove the next day and well, she's retired and shouldn't have to do that. So I thought I would get this for her and see if it worked. It works and she loves it. No more boiling over the pots. When the family is over, it's always mashed potatoes or pasta so this saves her so much scrubbing the next day. I am glad I got it for her." —Chris w

    Get it from Amazon for $20+ (available in four sizes and three colors).

    2. Soft furniture socks to prevent your tables and chairs from scratching up the hardwood floors and making that annoying screeching sound.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have tried everything out there in an attempt to protect our natural hardwood floor from our barstools. Nothing worked long term. Everything falls off with use and time. Of course it doesn’t help that the wrought iron barstool legs are an odd shape so nothing really fit. I was reluctant to try these, but am glad I did. While I thought the color might be a problem, it was perfect. The knitted material hugged the legs nice and tight so that it isn’t even noticeable. Here’s hoping that a solution has finally been found." —loriltx

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and six colors).

    3. A tube of Glossier Boy Brow for getting that my-brows-but-better look in just a few swipes — it's so much easier to use than a pencil or powder.

    Glossier

    Also, this product is alcohol-free, fragrance-free, paraben-free, and cruelty-free.

    Promising review: "I have quite thin eyebrows and I really hate having to pencil them in daily. When on the hunt for the perfect no-fuss alternative, I came across Boy Brow. Once I tried it, I was hooked! It instantly makes my brows look fuller in a very natural way. I use this every day, even when I'm not wearing other makeup. It's so satisfying to put it on and see the difference." —Mkoogs

    Get it from Glossier for $16 (available in four shades).

    4. A subscription to Home Chef — a meal kit service that'll deliver fresh, perfectly-portioned ingredients to your doorstep so cooking dinner won't feel like such a chore. You might even *gasp* enjoy it.

    5. A natural and non-toxic hand soap duo that uses reusable glass bottles and dissolvable tablets that'll not only cut down on plastic waste but also make refills a breeze.

    Blueland

    Each set comes with two glass pump bottles, six foaming hand soap tablets (two of each scents; Iris Agave, Perrine Lemon, Lavender Eucalyptus Scents). Each tablet makes 9 ounces of soap in our reusable bottle. Fill with water, drop in the tablet, and you're good to go! It's safe for use around kids, adults, and pets.

    Promising review: "I think these look great, smell great, and produce a nice foam. I love that I’m also reducing my plastic waste. These are great!" —Kelly O.

    Get the set from Blueland for $30.

    Chewy

    You can set up to four daily meals and customize the portion size. You can easily adjust the settings using the LCD clock and display, and even record a message for mealtime calling. There's a magnetic lock lid prevents your furry friend from digging in.

    Promising review: "This feeder has been great. We've had it for 2 years now and have had no problems. I like that the lid locks and the voice feature that will call out when it's time to eat. Our cats are usually already there waiting but if not, they come running when they hear my voice on the speaker. We use it daily as our cats like to have their breakfast at 4am but we've also used it while away on weekend trips and have not had any issues." —Cat2

    Get it from Chewy for $79.99.

    7. A roll of permanent or temporary hem tape for fixing slightly-too-long trousers (that you've been meaning to take to the tailor's but...life happens).

    Scotch

    Promising review: "These really work. I wanted to wash my pants first before reviewing to make sure it sticks. And I was very surprised that it lasted through washing and drying. Great product." —Daniela Dogar

    Get them from Amazon: 30-pack of the permanent hem bonding strips for $7.79 or 24-pack of the adjustable hem tape for $5.63

    8. Vacuum storage bags to prevent your off-season clothing from taking over the entire closet. Think of all the space you'll save!

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Read our review of these vacuum storage bags (#2 on the list)!

    Promising review: "I've been going through and purging items and cleaning and preparing for storage items I'm keeping, pre-moving. I love these bags, they make such a difference and you can easily see what's in there...as opposed to my previous storage bags — trash bags. I've gotten what took three shelves down to one. Can't complain about that." —Samsara

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in four sizes and variety packs).

    9. A subscription to Atlas Coffee Club (which delivers coffee from around the world to your doorstep) that'll make any caffeine obsessive say, "Where has this ~bean~ my whole life?!"

    Review photo of bags of Atlas coffee taken by BuzzFeed editor Rebecca O'Connell
    Atlas Coffee Club

    I've tried out several bags of coffee from this company and they all taste amazing (this is coming from a coffee snob, haha). Several other BuzzFeeders have also personally tested out this subscription and love it! Read our full review of Atlas Coffee Club!

    Here's an excerpt: "The coffee itself was phenomenal! The amazing smell hits you as soon as you open the box. My roommates and I have varying levels of snobbery when it comes to coffee. For example, I'm cool with some Dunkin' Donuts iced coffee, but one of my roommates only buys his coffee from a fancy beanery in Williamsburg. Despite our different palates, we all loved and raved about Atlas's coffee. We used an electric grinder and tried making it with both a normal coffee maker and a French press. The Colombian coffee was very smooth and chocolatey, with an almost creamy texture even when taken black. The Peruvian coffee was more bitter and fruity, but also exceptional. I think this is a great purchase for coffee fans and an even better gift thanks to the level of personal care put into each package. I feel like lots of subscription services are a rip-off, but this one definitely is worth it!" —Rebecca O'Connell

    Get a three-month subscription from Atlas Coffee Club for $60 (six-months for $109 and 12-months for $199).

    10. A detangler clasp so you can layer your delicate necklaces without worrying about them getting all twisted together.

    11. Double shower hooks for anyone who's ever lamented, "But why can't I switch my curtain and liner separately?!"

    The shower hooks featuring rollerballs for easy gliding
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I'm so happy to no longer have to deal with the shower curtain or liner falling off of the hook. I love the fact that the double hook allows me to remove either the liner or shower curtain without the hassle of removing both. I don't know why I waited so long to order these." —Tanner L.

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in three finishes).

    12. A seat gap filler to prevent your phone, French fries, and quarters from sliding into the unreachable abyss.

    amazon.com

    These Drop Stop seat gap fillers were originally featured on Shark Tank!

    Promising review: "I have bought about six of these for myself and friends/family. Cell phones, wallets, keys, change, and everything else doesn't fall through. I will not have another car without it. I was in a friend's car, and my phone dropped through the seat. He got a Drop Stop the next day." —kellen

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $19.99.

    13. Tiny braces that can actually work miracles on your ingrown toenails. They're fairly easy to apply (non-invasive) and you'll see results within a week!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    The toenail brace is a composite strip applied across your toenail. The strip behaves like a spring so when it's bonded to the curved surface of your toenail it applies a gentle force that helps straighten the nail. Most people will seek results within a week. The kit comes with ten toenail braces and adhesive to apply them.

    Promising review: "This is a product that actually works for ingrown toenails. I had suffered for years with ingrown nails on both big toes. They were so painful that I bought wide shoes to try and be more comfortable, and wore sandals practically all year. I was skeptical about spending this much, but I’d easily spent that much over the years on things that don’t work. I followed directions to a T (not difficult). The first couple of days, I didn’t notice a difference in pain, but by days three and four, it no longer hurt to touch the side of my toes. After wearing a few weeks, my nail shape is now flatter, as it's supposed to be. Great product!! Worth every penny." —Amazon Queen

    Get the kit from Amazon for $44.99.

    14. A collapsible brush tree so you can dry your makeup brushes upside down instead of laying them flat on some paper towels. This drying method will ensure the water doesn't loosen the glue that holds the bristles together!

    Reviewer image of makeup brushes drying upside down on the tree
    amazon.com

    It has 28 holes of different sizes.

    Promising review: "If you are a makeup lover, then you know how important it is to wash your makeup brushes! This item is great for keeping your brushes in a safe position for drying. You never want to let wet brushes dry with the bristles up because the water will loosen the glue and ruin the brush. This stand holds many brushes of varying size handles in the correct position to dry without harming the bristles of your makeup brushes! It also folds up very compact and takes up very little room. A+ product." —Cindy H.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    15. A beauty spatula for digging out the last bits of that expensive foundation you splurged on so nothing gets wasted.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Fantastic product. I'm able to get every drop out of my very expensive face cream. Works on bottles, jars, etc. Only wish I would have bought this product years ago. Oh, the money I could have saved." —HMSK

    Get it from Amazon for $5.89.

    16. A silicone holster to give you a safe place to rest your hair straightener, especially if you have a tendency to accidentally leave it on.

    Amazon

    The silicone can withstand temperatures up to 500 degrees and can attach to any smooth, non-porous surface.

    Promising review: "My wife left the hair straightener on and rushed to work, this plastic magnificent thing probably prevented a fire in our apartment. Even though it was very warm and hot, nothing burned, not even the plastic holder itself. It does what it's supposed to do. It sticks and prevents fires from hair straighteners. Proved after sticking to the sink for over three to four months and not melting with a turned-on hair straightener inside from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m." —Emre

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

    17. Sock-pairing clips that'll ensure single socks never get lost again in the Bermuda Triangle that is your dryer.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These work. They are of good quality construction. I had a sock problem, and these have stopped the unexplained disappearance of socks. Obviously, the sock monster can't swallow the Sock Dock full of socks, only single socks." —A.D. Burnette

    Get it from Amazon for $16 (available in four colors).

    18. A subscription to NordVPN so you can browse the internet on the go (anywhere in the world) with an ease of mind, knowing that your data stays secure behind a secure wall of encryption, even if you're logged onto public Wi-Fi. It'll also take care of pesky pop-up ads

    Sign up for one month plan for $11.95/month, a one-year plan for $6.99/month, and a two-year plan for $3.49/month.

    19. A bottle-emptying stand for getting every last bit of the ketchup without having to do the "Shake It Off" dance...although, that does sound like fun.

    Promising review: "I like getting the last bit of whatever out of my bottles. These hold them upright without having to set them against something and them falling over." —Amazon Customer

    20. A fragrant, non-toxic candle to neutralize odors created by your animal companions. After you're done with the candle, use the jar for stashing pet treats – it's a win-win situation ~fur~ everyone!

    The candle in lavender green tea scent
    Amazon

    Each candle can burn for about 60–70 hours. They are made from 100% soy wax and are paraffin-, dye-, and allergen-free.

    Promising review: "I just got the candle yesterday and have burned it twice, three hours each time. I had a guest today and the first thing she commented on was how nice my apartment smelled. The smell is not strong and that makes me happy because I really hate the overpowering smells of the popular deodorizers. I have a senior dog that cannot make it outside all the time. He uses pee pads and is really good about it, but after almost two years of this routine, I had begun to dread walking in the door after being out for awhile. This candle just makes the room smell fresh and that's exactly what I wanted." —Moldy in Maryland

    Get it from Amazon for $21.95 (available in 18 scents).

    21. A TubShroom that'll catch all your hairs while still allowing water to drain. No wonder more than 10,000 people swear by this lil' gadget!

    The TubShroom with hair coiled around it
    Amazon

    I recently bought one of these and I will never stop raving about it! I used to have a traditional strainer that would block the water flow as soon as a few hairs got caught in it (and I would have to fish out a clump of hair every five minutes or so). No more! This gadget catches all the hairs (so you don't end up with a clogged drain) and still allows the water to go down. I literally cannot stop talking about it.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical about this little rubber strainer, but I needed something to save my drains from the piles of hair that fall out of my head. This thing is amazing! It fit into my standard drain perfectly, and I don't think a single hair slipped by it. It was pretty gross to see how much hair I lost in just one shower, but it was comforting to know it wasn't clogging my drain. Clean up is super easy, too. I just took a tissue and wiped it from top to bottom, grabbing all the hair as the soft rubber strainer released it all easily. Not a hair was caught in it. Best strainer I've ever had." —Lawyer For Justice

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in six colors). Also, check out the SinkShroom and the ShowerShroom.

    22. An overflow drain cover so you can enjoy a full bath without worry about losing precious water every second.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Baths have changed for me forever now! I can actually FILL THE TUB and not hear that dreaded sound of half my water (and my expensive magnesium flakes, essential oils, organic bubble baths, and other fancy therapeutic ingredients) tragically vanishing down the drain. If you're a larger person trying to fit in a smaller tub, especially, you know... THE STRUGGLE IS REAL. Now I can take more baths, enjoy more relaxing warm coziness... all because of this little bit of silicone!" —anonymous

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    23. A waterproof notepad for jotting down all your shower thoughts before they go down the drain. You can finally shampoo in peace without worrying about forgetting those great ideas.

    Amazon

    It comes with a pencil. Check out another waterproof notebook you can bring on the go!

    Promising review: "For someone with mild ADD or anxiety as I have, this was life-changing. It seems silly, but for anyone with a busy life or just stressed, this is one of the simplest, most valuable things I can think of. Beyond that, I have 5-starred it because I've had one for 18 months and can't find any flaw or way the product can be improved. It's simple and does what it's supposed to. So why do I say life-changing? Rule number one when under stress is get things out of your head and captured somewhere so you can actually focus on whatever task might be at hand without worrying about forgetting. The shower was the one place I couldn't capture anything and often where everything came to mind." —Adrian J Gell

    Get it from Amazon for $9.50.

    24. A shower curtain with mesh pockets to save you from your tiny bathtub with no ledges to store products.

    The transparent shower curtain
    Amazon

    It measures 70" x 72". Check out our review of this mesh pocket shower curtain (#2 on the list)!

    Promising review: "This liner may be the most useful product I've ever purchased! It allows you to organize all your various bath products in conveniently sized mesh pockets. The pockets are strong enough to hold full shampoo and conditioner bottles without tearing away from the liner. No more worries about cluttered edges causing things to fall off the sides of the bathtub. No more nasty soap scum from bars of soap resting on the edge of the tub. No more rust circles from cans of shaving cream. It's brilliant!" —G. Allen

    Get it from Amazon for $14.50. Or, check out a mesh organizer you can add on to your existing shower curtain.

    25. Ceiling fan chain pulls that clearly indicate which one is for the light and which one is for the fan — no more guessing games!

    The chain pulls with two different ends, one in the shape of a light bulb and the other in the shape of a fan
    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is the definition of 'product you didn't know you needed because you didn't know it existed.' I was FOREVER pulling the wrong chain on our bedroom ceiling fan. (Want the light off? Oh no...now the fan's on high. Need to change the fan speed? Eek...now you're in the dark.) They're much better quality than I expected. They're actually quite heavy-duty pull chains, and they add a bit of fun to the decor." —LHD

    Get them from Amazon for $6.99 (available in two finishes).

    26. A handy device so you and your roomie can both keep track of whether or not the doggo has been fed.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Awesome product! There are four of us that were working together to feed the dogs. It simplified everything because I no longer have to text to see if anyone had fed them every morning. Now I just to see if it's green and if not, I feed them and indicate it. We all love it so much!" —Toni Deegan

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    27. A pack of elastic fasteners as the ultimate solution for sheets that just won't stay put.

    The three-ended fasteners holding sheets in place
    Amazon

    Promising review: "These sheet straps are the best purchase I have ever made. I bought a new bed and had to put a thick mattress protector on it for the warranty to remain active, so my sheets fit very snugly. I toss and turn a lot and my dog moves around a lot, so the sheets were always coming off the corner. I bought these, and it only took a couple minutes to put on. It’s been a week and my sheets have stayed in place. This was the perfect simple and cheap solution for a major annoyance." —Shariece

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $8.99.

    28. A gadget to rest your detergent cup on — it'll catch any drips and prevent a mess.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I've only had this for a week, and I'm already wondering how I lived without it. Finally, a solution for less mess in the laundry room. No more messy detergent leaks, drips, or a cap covered in detergent. I would recommend this product to anyone; it's a game changer!" —makenna

    Get it from Amazon for $10.88.

    29. An eyeliner stamp that'll help you overcome your inability to draw perfectly matching wings.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    One side is a winged stamp and the other side is a regular eyeliner pen.

    Promising review: "This product is amazing. Seriously. Not only does it make PERFECT wings, but I have pretty small eyes that squinch up when I smile, laugh, etc., which is super annoying because my eyeliner is always smudged. These pens though — not a sign of smudging at all. Buy it." —Tara Doyle Robinson

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    30. Anti-chafe lace bands so walking in a skirt for hours on a hot day will be a lot easier on your thighs.

    Promising review: "These are fantastic! I work overnight and wear dresses regularly to the office, I've been using the deodorant style anti-chafing rubs and wanted a longer lasting option. Ding Ding ladies!! This is it! So comfortable I fell asleep in them! No marks, no uncomfortable 'digging in.'

    They do take some fine tuning to make sure that they don't roll, but once you find that spot, they don't move! I got the lacy ones and they are sexy and soft to the touch with the silicone on the top and bottom." —A. Spencer

    Get them from Amazon for $16.95+ (available in six sizes and 14 colors).

    31. A set of storage containers for helping your berries (and other fresh produce) stay fresh long enough to actually get eaten. Yup, it's basically a miracle pod.

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    These are BPA-free and dishwasher-safe. Read our review of the Rubbermaid FreshWorks storage containers!

    Promising review: "I wish I would have gotten these sooner. I bought strawberries for my children, and then I forgot about them. I found them in the back of the refrigerator almost TWO WEEKS later, and they were still good. The real miracle is how long it keeps zucchini. Zucchini starts to get mushy in the crisper drawer after just a few days. Again, these miracle containers have kept it fresh for close to two weeks now. I've kept cut lettuce, cut cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, cucumbers, zucchini, sliced bell peppers, strawberries, blackberries, cut jicama, and carrots in these containers. I've had fantastic results with all of them." —Laura

    32. A stainless steel bar to get the most pungent of smells off your hands, such as garlic and raw fish.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This little bar of 'soap' does exactly what it is intended to do. Do you have a sponge or rag that has that.....odor? Simply wash your hands under the sink with this little guy and suddenly, your hands smell like hands again. I've used it after handling several smelly items that have a tendency to make an odor stick with you. It's worked consistently every time." —Jeremy

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    33. A zipper puller that'll zip up your favorite dress all the way when there's no one around to give you a hand.

    The zipper pull with a clasp at the end
    Amazon

    Promising review: "Ever wish you could bring your favorite dress on a trip, but you can't get it zipped without help? Ever felt trapped in a dress because your other half is coming home late? Ever not been able to REACH just far enough? This product perfectly addresses all of those situations, and — this is important —for all zipper types, including those tiny little solid zippers that don't have a hook (some other products seem to only work on zippers with a hook).

    For years, I've dreamed of inventing this product, of finding this product — here it is! I've used this product a few times since it arrived last week. It is simple in design, which means it is unlikely to break. The metal piece is well-built and easy to use. This is small enough to pack in even a small purse. I'm wanting one for my suitcase (so I don't accidentally forget it) as well as at home." —Stacy

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in three colors).

    34. A wearable nail polish bottle holder so you can work on your manicure anywhere, even if there's no table within reach.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This little invention is perfect for me. I'm an artist who paints very dense, delicate designs like a machine, but usually make a MESS out of painting my own nails. I am clumsy, for one thing, and have spilled many bottles of polish. Lately I've become crippled with hip pain, so I lie down frequently. With this device, I can lie down and easily paint my nails without spilling a drop. It's a clever invention I wish I'd thought of myself!" —Chamberpaint

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 16 colors).

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in four colors).

    36. A grippy silicone strip to stop bags from constantly slipping off your shoulders.

    Amazon, youtube.com

    Promising review: "I recently bought a high quality leather shoulder strap handbag and was having problems with it sliding off my shoulder, since the leather strap was fairly smooth. So I went online and searched to see if there were any products out there that would solve this issue...and I found the Purse Gummy! It works beautifully! No more struggling with a slipping strap. It is hardly noticeable on the strap since it is on the underside, but I wouldn't mind it if was seen because it works so well." —D. Dillon

    Promising review: "These little patches are outstanding. They work just as advertised. This is the first acne product that worked just as I hoped. Put the patch on an annoying blemish at night and in the morning, there will be white gunk on that tiny little patch. Brilliant!! No downside to this product. Does not cause drying or flaking." —Robin V.

    Promising review: "This thing is amazing. I definitely struggle with the dilemma of not wanting buggers in my house but also not wanting to kill them. THIS SOLVES IT! It keeps me far enough away from them and grabs them the first time! Super easy to use, and then I get the happy conscious of releasing them outside to go on their happy way." —Haley

    Read our review of the Migrastil migraine roll-on stick!

    Promising review: "I have had tension and migraine headaches for around 20 years. I have tried everything. OTC medication, prescription medication, pain injections, chiropractor etc... This topical oil has given me relief for nearly six weeks now. I have only had two to three headaches in that time, and they were mild. I ordered more already so I have some in my car and at home, and I bought some for two of my friends who suffer from chronic migraines. I would recommend this product to anyone with migraines. It is phenomenal." —Mary D.

    41. Anti-dandruff shampoo formulated with wheat protein and wheat germ oil that'll help control flaking, scaling, and itching. These before-and-after photos speak for themselves!

    Just use it just twice a week in between your regular shampoos.

    Promising review: "MIRACLE PRODUCT!!! If you have dandruff, flaky scalp, scabs, etc... BUY THIS! I was about to go to the dermatologist if this stuff didn’t work. Thank goodness I saved myself hundreds of dollars by giving this product a shot. I used it four to five times (over a month), and it cleared my scalp almost completely. One more use and my scalp will be 120% healed! This stuff blew my mind. Totally worth it." —chris

    42. A pair of bamboo charcoal shoe deodorizers so you won't have to give up your fave flats because they became too stinky to wear.

    These can be reused for up to two years. To rejuvenate, simply place the bags in the sun once a month for at least one hour. I have these at home and swear by them! Read my review to get the deets.

    Promising review: "These are magical! I have a favorite pair of shoes that got soaked in the rain. I thought the stench after that meant complete ruin and was ready to throw them away when I found these. I placed them inside the pumps for a week. And that was that. The stench is completely gone!!! Unbelievable." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $9.95.

    43. A pack of bra strap holders because nothing is more annoying than pulling up your bra straps for the 30th time.

    These can also convert bras to be worn with halter and racerback tops.

    Promising review: "Since I started using these clips, I haven't had to pull up my straps a single time! I used to have to pull them back up a dozen times a day. No more. Now I can put on my bra and then just forget that it is there. I don't notice any change in the fit of my bra. I wear a large cup size and the last thing I wanted was to add to that. However, with the straps fully extended on my bra, I find the fit to be essentially the same as before. The only difference is that the straps stay in place. If you've ever struggled to keep your straps up, you owe it to yourself to try this product." —K. Howe

    44. A poop scooper for anyone who dreads touching dog poo through a bag. This will do the dirty work for you!

    Amazon

    It even comes with a built-in bag dispenser.

    Promising review: "Never thought I'd leave a review for a pooper scooper, but here I am. I've got an 85-pound greyhound who leaves a lot behind (with a smell worse than your average pup) and it grosses me out, plain and simple. This makes it manageable. It's just well engineered and I'm amazed there aren't more like it on the market. Everything from the bag storage to the expandable side (which really stays in place well) was just thought out well. Nothing will help the smell, but this is a whole lot better than touching it through a bag with my hand. I hope it lasts a long time!" —ruusk009

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in three sizes).

    45. A bitter but harmless clear polish that'll help break your nail-biting habit for good.

    Promising review: "I have been biting my fingernails as long as I could chew. I grew immune to the taste of the no-bite nail polish you can buy at drugstores. I tried keeping a rubber band on my wrist and popping it every time I noticed myself chewing. This nail polish has been the only thing that has worked. I keep a bottle on my desk at work and another one at home just in case I slip up. I had the first manicure of my life a few weeks ago. Amazing product." —Amazon Customer

    46. A fast-acting stain remover to have on hand until you've perfected your wine swirling skills.

    youtube.com

    Promising review: "Had some red wine splash on me during a wedding. Not like a huge puddle, but left a few streaks on the pant leg of a 100% wool suit. I sprayed some of this on a paper towel and applied it (conservatively) to the stains, then used a clean, wet paper towel to remove the residue. Worked like magic." —Will B.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95.

    47. A temporary tooth replacement kit you can mold and apply yourself while searching for a more permanent solution.

    Promising review: "I would give this 100 stars. I had to be IN a wedding without a front tooth and out of desperation ordered this. You could NOT TELL AT ALL that the tooth was not real. My husband was amazed... they give you enough material to make a dozen or more teeth. BEST INVESTMENT you can make if you can't afford the dentist but need to fix an unsightly lost tooth gap. I ate with it for three days straight and if you let it harden in place in your mouth, it won't come out until you pull it firmly. You will be completely safe to be in front of people and even out to dinner. Buy it." —Ashland A.

    48. A button extender for pants that get a little too tight around the waist after a trip to the buffet.

    Promising review: "These work great and are just enough to help with those pants that fit everywhere but give you discomfort in the waist. It is much easier to put them on the button when the pants are not on your body." —Batmanda

    49. All-natural bottle cleaning tablets that'll restore your stainless steel thermos to a brand new state. The best part? No scrubbing required!

    These are biodegradable and odor-free.

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. A bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING." —Amazon Customer

    50. Silicone sleeves to secure your glasses in place and prevent them from falling off your face.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Finally the solution to my issue. My eyeglasses would always dig into the back of my ear on one side, not to mention they would slip down my nose from time to time. Purchased these and what a difference, my glasses have never fit better, and often times I forget to take them off, they're so comfortable. Best purchase decision EVER." —Andrea Lincoln

    51. A bag carrier so you can transport all the groceries from the car to the front door in one trip — no need to run back and forth.

    Two people using Mighty Handles to hold multiple bags of groceries at once
    Amazon

    Promising review: "It seems silly, but having to lug in multiple bags in a shopping trip can be a huge hassle, especially if you live in an apartment complex and have to walk up flights of stairs. And of course, no one wants to make two trips (or god forbid, three or four) to get all of your stuff inside. The Mighty Handle is a great solution to this problem: you can hang all of your bags of groceries (or clothes, or shoes, or anything you can think of) on these handles and then only have to hold one (or two) handles to take everything with you. You can also use the Mighty Handle to hang your bags on and then twist the handles together so your stuff doesn't all spill out in the trunk. A simple solution to an annoying problem." —Elaina
