35 Problem-Solving Products That'll Let You Take A Vacation From Everyday Annoyances

Because bug bites are something I just don't have time for.

two trash cans with the insect killer in the lidthe package

1. A Terro garbage guard you can pop in the lid of your trash can if you're dealing with flies, maggots, roaches, or beetles. This way, you don't have to fling open the lid and throw your trash from a few feet away while screaming like a banshee.

Promising review: "Fruit Flies are DEAD!!!! My 98 year old Dad just called me with the news that hundreds if not thousands of fruit flies died today in his house. I was visiting with my farther over the holidays and as I entered his house I came face to face with swarms of fruit flies that must have appeared due to our mild winter weather and his overly warm house. We tried so many “home” mixtures found on YouTube but nothing was very affective. As I was leaving after the holidays I was at my wits end on how to kill these fruit flies that had also moved to the bedrooms and bathrooms. Before I left Dad’s house I ordered him a new garbage can with a spring loaded handle on the top that I felt he could manipulate as well as TERRO T800 Garbage Guard both from Amazon. He received both and with a secure top garbage can and TERRO T800 Garbage Guard, within hours hundreds if not thousands of fruit flies were dead or dying. My Dad ask me to get on my “computer thing” and tell Amazon how happy he is with this product and the elimination of the fruit flies. He said he would recommend this to anyone who are also having problems getting rid of fruit flies! 👏👍" — DJKy

a reviewer showing a dirty baseboard buddy pada before and after of a reviewer's once dusty baseboards

2. Baseboard Buddy is an extendable pole that makes cleaning your baseboards, moldings, ceiling fans, and grates easy and convenient, without having to strain your back, shoulders, or knees. If you're someone who often forgets to clean these areas until cobwebs are visible, Baseboard Buddy is a great tool to have on hand.

Promising review: "Scrubbie OK so when I saw this I lost my mind. Baseboards are my No. 1 enemy! Ask anyone! I HATE them. My hubby works a lot in the dirt and under houses and a lot of that flies off of him and DIRECTLY onto my evil baseboards.I thought that this Baseboard Buddy was a way for me to finally make peace with my baseboards.I wasn't wrong, but it does require a bit of effort.First I tried it while it was dry. That was not going to work. I even used elbow grease. It was horrible. I think my finger even got a cramp.So then I decided to try it wet.Bingo!It did work!However, it was really hard to position the thing correctly. It was really awkward trying to stop the micrufiber head from pivoting all around. Also, when I was done i saw that it was actually unscrewing.Here are the pro's, though.-It's good for reaching high places.-If you have a back that can't bend over very well, it's useful (if you don't mind the struggle).-It's easy to store.-It's easy to assemble.-It doesn't talk back or have an attitude a couple of my other baseboard cleaners (my kids).-You can pretend it's a microphone" — Carrie Starke

3. A leave-in conditioner for little ones with curly locks that are prone to tangles and breakage. Keratin, plum seed oil, and olive oil combine to leave them with shiny, healthy, incredible-smelling ringlets you can't help but sniff.

Promising review: "Beat product for curly girls. This stuff is fantastic for curly girls! I spray it in my daughter's dry hair in the morning, run my fingers through her ringlets (never ever comb or brush curly hair dry), then clip the top back. It smells amazing, and the price on Amazon is better than other national retailers I've found it at. The price is worth it. Minimizes frizz and keeps curls soft and natural looking. My daughter has soft/fine thick hair." — Carolyn Smith

4. A finishing stick that looks like a mascara wand, but it's actually for the hairs on your head! If flyaways are something that bother you, give your hairline a good swipe and watch them be tamed without a fight.

Promising review: "You gotta try this magic hair sauce! I’m kind of a busy lady with not a lot of time on her hands to do much fiddling about with my hairs unless I’m going out dancing * my regular day is about 15 to 20 hours* , so I wear my hair up in a high bun A LOT.The one thing that has always irritated me about this hairstyle is those little tendrils of hair in the back that don’t make it into my up do.Hairspray and gel didn’t really work, hairspray made the hairs crunchy and eventually chunks of back hair ended up sticking straight out like I got electrocuted, but only in the back. Gel made my hair too hard and I’d have to wash it out the same day.As an African American woman, I can’t be washing my hair every day like I’m a Barbie doll or something, so gel was most definitely not the solution.Both attempted solutions were very difficult to brush out and left my hair with flakes in it.😖I am addicted to reading about new beauty things on Buzzfeed and I found this stuff in one of their “articles” so I decided to take the plunge and give this a shot since it was super cheap.O.m.g it WORKS!I put my hair up and went out dancing the other night and despite all the whirling twirling and sweating, not one hair moved.Not one!I was even able to brush it out easily, there was no flaking AND the tendrils in the back still stayed up the next day.👀The only weird thing about this is that it feels exactly like lube.I was definitely on the fence about putting something that felt like it was for sexy times with my lady parts on my hair, but I’ll try almost anything once and I’m glad I did because this hair sauce is amazing.And who but me is putting this stuff on their hands anyway? I just do it because I have an uncontrollable need to feel and smell anything I’m putting in my hair or on my body. 🤷🏽‍♀️Normal people will not notice this at all I am sure.I included some pics that I took this morning when I put my hair up( forgot to do it after I went out dancing 🙄), I’m they hoping show how good it holds, I futzed around with the mirror trying to get a good pic, but I’m no expert!😬They are a lot longer after using this hair growth serum I got on Amazon so I was doubly surprised that the sauce held up so much hair!" — Queenofthehouse

Promising review: "Love it. Not worth it Best thing ever!! It so much easier to get all of the soap off of my dog. Even using a normal shower head that detaches this one is so much easier. All of the shampoo and water just slides right off and it's so simple to get under her neck, around her face, and underneath her body! She is so much cleaner.So after just a few months my Waterpik broke. The whole thing just separated from the mounted shower and that was it.

8. A set of silicone stove counter gap covers to prevent attracting unwanted critters after flinging pasta into the half-inch crevice. We all know nobody is actually cleaning it out, so go ahead and do yourself a favor.

Promising review: "THESE THINGS ARE AWESOME!!! I ordered these silicone gap covers to keep debris from falling in between our kitchen appliances and the counters. The thing that sold me was when I read a review on here that stated that they were able to use it for the gap between the stove and fridge. I have the same setup in my apartment. Countertop on one side of the stove and fridge on the other. The silicone sticks very well to the fridge, stove and counter. It doesn’t move around very easily, which is a good thing. Just make sure you place it with the wider side of the strip towards the counter as shown in the picture." — Kevin B.

a child using the faucet extender to wash their hands

9. An easy-to-install faucet extender if your little one makes an absolute mess of the bathroom counter because they simply can't reach the sink. Ofc, the real win here isn't preventing puddles, it's giving them the independence to wash up on their own!

Promising review: "Perfect Faucet Extenders. Not Just For Kids. Easy to Install, User, Clean. Highly Recommend! Everyone that has come to my house has asked about these. Even my guests without children have asked. How do they stay in place? Where did you get them?They don't ask if they work well or are good quality, because they can see that they do work very well and are of excellent quality.I just tell them that there's soft silicone (grey part) that grips the faucet so that they stay put but are also easily adjustable any time. And to buy them on Amazon. I have even purchased these as gifts, if you can imagine!The silicone grip is the key and allow these to fit on most faucets. I have one on a cylindrical neck faucet and one on a rectangular neck faucet...very different shapes and sizes and both work perfectly.They extend the water flow so my three little ones can wash their hands unassisted. Without these, my 6 year old has a hard time reaching the water, and my 4 and 2 cannot even reach without me lifting them.Water drips right off. They stay dry and clean. No mineral build up. Easy to remove and clean and put back on. Pleasant looking and not wildly colored orl oddly/silly shaped.Such a small item that most would not give a second thought to, but phew! What a life saver! If you need to extend your faucet for any reason, kids...pets... convenience... whatever your needs, I cannot recommend these enough!" —

Promising review: "You need this! 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 Monday and Tuesday morning I woke up with a bug bite on my arm... I used this little tool (3 x per the instructions) and documented with photos.- immediately after using, it stopped itching! And less than 24 hours later the bump / bite 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

Promising review: "Works great!! I wasn't sure if this would clean my shower doors without me first scrubbing them first but thought I would give it a try. I started just spraying one of the doors so I could compare it to the other door. Within the first couple of days I noticed it started working. I sprayed it every day and within a couple of weeks it looked great. The doors have a pattern in them so they will never look perfectly clear. In the pictures I put a pink hand towel on the sink so it would show up good. The door on the left is the one I didn't spray at all yet and the door on the right is after it was clean. I will definitely continue to use this product." — Gail Carnes

I usually put it on the passenger seat, but if there is someone sitting there then...to the floor it goes. Blech.This is the handiest contraption ever. You simply raise your headrest about 1/2" and clip this to the headrest's post.It is firm and secure. My handbag is often heavy and this didn't make it tilt at all when it was on. I gave one to my daughter who uses it in her car, too. She loves it as her car doesn't have much floor space as her center console is wide and she often has passengers.Great value for something so useful!If you found my review helpful, please click 'yes' below.

Dog in a car drinking out of the no spill water bowl

15. A no-spill dog bowl is ideal if your dog likes to take a dip in their dish every time you refill it. They are SO dang cute, but man, that gets annoying fast.

Promising review: "Great for messy drinking labs! My dad's dog Zeke is a notoriously messy drinker. I dont even think he swallows his last gulp, just fills his mouth up and walks away leaving a trail of water behind him. When I found out my parents would be staying with us for a month, I needed a solution to protect my wood floors. I was intrigued by this bowl because I hoped it would cause him to drink slower and I was right! To train your dog that there is water in the bowl, take all other water sources away and then fill it so a little water sits above the paw shaped hole in the center. You can also press down lightly with your hand to show them there is water. Both Zeke and mu dog have adapted well to this and my floors are drier. There are still occasionally drops on the floor but no longer puddles , but I blame the dog not the bowl. The only thing I would change is the size, 2 labs drink a lot." — Bano

Kept forgetting to do something about it until recently. I purchased these because they seemed to be a good value. I followed the easy directions and was not prepared for the amount of gunk the blue foam pushed out of both sinks. It was gross! After the blue foam died down, I cleaned my sinks and they smelled much better. Almost wanted to do it again, but I'll wait a bit. Highly recommended!" — Sissy39

The red and white box which comes with 36 patchesA reviewer's before and after photo which shows how the patch has drawn pus out of a pimple

18. ->A pack of a href="https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074PVTPBW" Mighty Patch Hydrocolloid Spot Treatments</a

Promising review: "Adheres Much Better Than Nexcare. The most important thing to understand about hydrocolloid acne patches such as the Mighty Patch is that they are for use on mature acne blemishes that have "come to a head", so to speak. The patches are coated on one side with some mixture of pectin, carboxy-methylcellulose, and polymers that absorb fluid, plus an adhesive. Hydrocolloid pulls the fluid out of a wound, encasing it in a white gel. In the case of acne, the patches will pull the mixture of white cells, bacteria, dead skin, etc. that forms the white head of an infected pore. You have to wait until the pimple has come to the surface and you can see white. I recommend pricking the white head with a pin before applying the patch. I have experienced some patches that did not work because there were too many layers of skin over the infection. If you prick the white head, the goop inside will definitely have an escape route.The Mighty Patches come in a box of 36, which is three sheets of 12 patches. They are about 12mm in diameter. The patches are made of some type of plastic or rubber that is too thick and too slick to cover with makeup. You'll want to wear these overnight or around the house. Clean the area to remove oil, dirt, makeup, etc. that might interfere with the adhesive. Prick your whitehead. They apply the patch. Instructions recommend leaving it on for at least 6 hours. I find that 8-10 hours is good. If the blemish has flattened out when you remove the patch, you're probably done. If not, repeat the next evening. Hydrocolloid patches work well because they continue to pull the stuffings out of the blemish over a period of time. You could extract the white goop with a comedone extractor or fingernail. But, unless the infection is completely gone, the fluid will return. Continuing to pull the fluid out over time seems to solve this problem.I have used Nexcare Acne Covers, but I prefer the Mighty Patch brand. These 12mm patches are the same size as the large Nexcare patches. But you get 36 of them in a box, whereas a box of Nexcare Acne Covers contains 12 of the 12mm patches and 24 smaller 8mm patches. The small patches are useless and Nexcare's adhesive is poor, which exacerbates the problem. I've never been able to keep an 8mm patch on for even 5 minutes. Effectively, I paid for a box of 36 Nexcare patches and only got 12 patches. With Mighty Patch, all 36 patches are big enough and sticky enough to use, so I'm getting more for my money. Hydrocolloid patches are a must-have for anyone who gets inflamed, infected acne and Mighty Patch is designed well for the purpose. They are big enough to handle any blemish and the adhesive is strong enough to keep them on your face." —

Product in use in closetProduct in use in closet

19. Wonder Hangers that will help you organize your closet space so you can have room for all the latest fashion trends from TikTok.

Promising review: "I Wish I had Discovered these Sooner! These hangers made reorganizing my closets highly successful and satisfying. In previous reviews I saw comments that stated that the hangers didn't actually save closet space, so it's important to know that I hung my articles of clothing on each of the Wonder Hangers in the vertical position. In this way I gained a minimum of a third more closet space. After using all of the Wonder Hangers in the 10 pack, I ordered the 12 pack set to share with my husband and to organize our coat closet. Using these hangers for our coats and jackets showed us how strong they are, as some of the coats were very heavy, and again, I gained at least a third more space for the coat closet. I do need to point out that my husband isn't using these hangers for his dress shirts because he feels that the collars tend to suffer by putting five of them so that they hang vertically. He's pretty enthusiastic, however, about using them to hang t-shirts and casual shirts with soft collars. I so wish I had discovered this product a lot sooner than I did, but better later than not at all." — Susan

I noticed my newest order doesn't work as well as my previous one. Too thin so doesn't fill as well. I then compared to previous one have been using and noticed the images on product don't match.

I had so many questions and comments it was just easier to make a video!!I literally removed the plate from the outlet and turned the outlet plugs upside down and replaced the plate.

The water-storing crystals being poured into soil Reviewer's photo of healthy plants after using the crystals

25. A pack of Miracle-Gro water storing crystals that help your plants survive heat waves, droughts, and downpours.

Promising review: "Works great! These work very well! I mean VERY well. A little goes a long way, as I found out the hard way. I put some in my plants and watered after soaking some in a bowl for about 20 minutes to test them. They expanded quite a bit, but not amazingly so. I proceeded to put a fair amount of them into my potted outdoor plants so they wouldn't dry out in the mid day heat as they usually do in the summer. We then had a torrential downpour that lasted all day and night. I woke up the next morning to find blobs of clear gel pouring out of all of my pots and covering the ground around them! lol. Lesson learned. They expand a LOT with time and water. If using outdoors use sparingly. They do work well though. My plants did not drown, in fact the gel probably absorbed some of the water that would have stayed in the pot and waterlogged my plants. However, use just a bit for outdoor use. The pots I had seeds in did absolutely amazing! It kept the top moist and the sprouts just came right up through the gel. I attached pictures of my accident to give an idea of how they expand. mind you, I still have more than a half a bag of unused crystals. Use just a little for outdoor use." — Athena

plastic flower-shaped cap on stiletto heel keeping it from sinking into gravel

26. Heel caps to prevent sinking into the ground at outdoor weddings.

Promising review: "Such a necessary item! My wedding was in a national park and we decided to take pictures at the watering hole with all the animals drinking in the cool of the day. Clearly this is not a flat or clean surface. I had bought some sparkly shoes as my wedding shoes so I needed them to remain pristine. These heel stoppers got such rave reviews that I did not hesitate to buy them.I'm glad that the size I chose fit the shoes perfectly. I was so pleased with my purchase. Trying them on at home and walking on the floor made the shoes more stable for me. I thought that was an added bonus before sinking into mud and grass.Now, the small disaster that happened. Right after we said our vows, we went around greeting people and posing for selfies and all the flurry that happens around a bride and groom on their wedding day. I felt it but wasn't sure what had happened. Someone stood too close to me and stepped on my stopper. Now, it initially felt like my shoe had gotten stuck on something, but someone was stepping on it. So in trying to pry myself free, I left one of the stoppers at the ceremony area. We jumped onto our safari trucks and drove to the place we were to take pictures. As you can see with the last picture, this was after the photo session when we were back in the hotel room. My one shoe was kept clean while the other had mud halfway up the heel.I have to give these 5 stars even though I lost one because they were still a life-saver for one shoe. Plus, it's not like the stopper fell off on its own, this was actually aggravated assault on my heel (slight exaggeration). Great product, I highly recommend." — CarloTess

29. A mint-flavored Venus teeth-whitening pen can brighten your smile by four to eight shades with regular use. The pen can help remove stains caused by coffee, tea, wine, or soda.

Promising review: "Works fast! This worked quick! I'd say I noticed a difference in 3 days in my teeth. It's super easy to use. Just brush and floss your teeth, dry them with a tissue and apply. You only have to hold your mouth open for 30 seconds and then you can relax. Not much of a taste either. I love them!" — Amazon Customer

A black small octopus shaped remover in a reviewer's hand the cap off to show the salt on the top of the remover

30. A smol, octupus-shaped exfoliating stick that gently removes blackheads, whiteheads, and excess sebum. This way, your T-zone can get a much-deserved breather.

Promising review: "I’m in love with this product! My embarrassing photo speaks volumes as to how well this product works. I am 48. My pores have been giant blackhead pits since I was 12. At this point they seem to be stretched out or scars. I’m not completely sure. After using this cute little octopus twice, over 90% of my pores a clear. It is definitely a first.The first time I tried it was a learning experience. Without instructions I kinda just went for it. Using the applicator as a scrubbing tool. Couldn’t tell if it was salt or blackheads I was seeing. Felt like I was wasting product because my face was covered in a sheer, grey film with little white speck all over. Decided to let it set for 5 minutes and use my little hand held face scrubber. The battery operated one with a brush head that spins. It was doing a pretty good job. Then I went ahead and used my fingers. If you have pores like mine, you have rubbed your finger across your chin to roll the whiteheads out. Admit it.. Once I gently started working it in with my hands the whiteheads and a lot of the upper surface blackheads started rolling out of my pores. It was fantastic!! I have never found a product that has came close to removing so many, especially in ONE use. I’ve been searching for 36 years for a bottle or pore strip to come close. Nothing has.. After that I wash and moisturized my face. Tonight I noticed how much I had missed under my lip and on my nose. Skipping most of the extra steps from my first use, I literally applied a little, let it set for a few minutes and gently rolled out more guck than I thought was still in my pores. It definitely makes your face soft and yes it it scented. I’m okay with a small amount of scent if it works this well. Not like I’m going to use it every day. There were a few red patches from rubbing but the did not last very long.If you are like me with horribly deep, disgusting pores like me, I highly recommend trying this product. Be gentle with your skin. Don’t over do it. Wash your face and slash some cool water on afterwards to try closing your pores as much as you can. Will update with another photo in a few weeks." — Kimberly Kukovich

Revlon oil-absorbing volcanic face rollerGif of reviewer using Revlon oil-absorbing volcanic face roller

32. An oil-absorbing volcanic face roller that works just oil-blotting sheets but doesn't create any extra waste! Just roll the mattifying stick over your T-zone (or anywhere else that gets greasy) and soak up excess oil.

Promising review: "Oh my gawwwd First off, if you have extremely oily skin, this. is. it. I was so tired of getting blotting powder/wipes. It felt wasteful and always left residue on my face. I saw this on tiktok and NEEDED it. It was back ordered but then I got an email saying it was in stock and I was SO excited. Not only is it affordable, but it's washable which helps you save money and be less wasteful. The packaging wasn't over the top exciting, but it provided you all the info you needed. (It felt like the holy grail had been delivered to my front doorstep.) After my first use, I was in love. Now, it doesn't pickup everything but it does make it more matte and gives you a natural look. I am so excited this product exists and I already feel more confident." — Kelsey B.

a reviewer photo of the mitt covered in dead skina reviewers leg covered in rolls of dead skin

33. A Korean exfoliating mitt to scrub away dead skin and leave you ready for a biggggg night in of applying your fake tanner. And if that's not your thing — no worries — it also helps unclog pores, prevent ingrown hairs, and eliminate bumps caused by keratosis pilaris.

Promising review: "LIFE CHANGING!!! These mitts have LITERALLY changed my life. They've completely, TOTALLY changed my skin! After having used every cream, lotion, loofah and exfoliating gloves for 15+ years, I am SHOCKED at how efficacious these mitts are!!! I'm not even kidding, these things are like NOTHING you've ever used. Nothing like those rough exfoliating shower gloves you buy from Walmart. They're nothing like any loofah or shower sponge, or any rough bath towel. You might think you're exfoliating your skin but TRUST ME, you haven't been. You'll be SHOCKED and maybe even a little disgusted when you see how much skin comes off on these gloves the first time you use them.Take a long, warm shower, then, with no soap, use these mitts after you're all rinsed off. Scrub your body well in a circular motion. Then look at the mitts! They'll look like they've been sprinkled with flour! You'll never get that much skin off your body again with subsequent uses, so don't forget to look because it's incredible. And get ready to be bowled over when you dry off. Hello softness!!!The most amazing thing? If you must go awhile without showering, like if you're sick for a week or two or break your leg and are unable to fully shower, your skin will not feel rough and dry like they used to. Your skin cells won't build up like they used to, at least not nearly at the rate they used to. I can't figure out how these mitts affect that, but they do! It has to be that these mitts removed YEARS of stuck skin cells that weren't getting removed with other gloves, washcloths, exfoliating creams, and towels. How gross is that?!? My face used to feel palpably rough and bumpy and dry after a few days of not exfoliating, or only scrubbing with my shower gloves. Not anymore!If you're middle aged, you'll notice a HUGE difference; you'll start feeling soft skin that actually gets a little OILY AGAIN!!! This is a good thing - a GREAT thing - for us 40something+ women whose skin has been dried up for years. I get THRILLED to feel skin oil on my forehead again. To feel my BABY SMOOTH face and arms. My skin literally feels 25 years old again. I haven't felt it like this in almost 25 years. I am so worried about not having these mitts one day that I just bought a 2nd pair. 😃" — isaidso
