It goes without saying that navigating everyday life can be difficult sometimes. Whether you're scrambling to find a misplaced car key or simply trying to remove a stubborn top from a jar, having a problem-solving Amazon product on hand can make it feel a little less complicated. To give you some help, I've created a list of must-have items that'll solve your daily dilemmas.

While scrolling through this list, you might find some products that you never thought you needed — but boy, will you love them once you give them a try. For example, the thought of an automatic soap dispenser that's easy to mount in your bathroom might've never crossed your mind — but it's extremely convenient (and extra-hygienic). Also, having a self-wringing mop system might not've been on your shopping list — but it'll help alleviate some of the back strain that comes with cleaning your floors.
