It’s no secret that life is full of little annoyances that can add up to one overwhelmingly unnecessary headache. From messy unorganized drawers that make it impossible to find the one thing you need to burning yourself on the straightener again because there’s not enough room in the bathroom, and don’t even get me started on that smudged eyeliner that there’s no time to fix…UGH. Okay, rant over. Clearly, we are no strangers to irritating everyday dilemmas, but thanks to the overlords of Amazon, we’ve discovered several incredibly useful products that just make life so much easier. You’re welcome.

22. This genius hot iron pocket that’ll hold onto your straightener as it heats up.
Encouraging Review: “I’ve had this product for about 2 weeks, and I have no regrets about purchasing it. It fits my chi hair straightener with no problem. It has slipped once so far, but otherwise, it’s been secure. I am planning to buy one for my curling iron and a larger one for my hair dryer (this size would probably not accommodate a hair dryer particularly not a Dyson). Overall, great tool.” – Jennifer Arroyo
