Let’s face it—some of us are more prone to clumsiness than others. I’ll be the first to raise my hand. But now, we’ve discovered some genius products for clumsy people, so we no longer have to suffer the clumsy consequences.

1. Non-Skid Slipper Socks

Have a tendency to slip and slide across your hardwood floors? That’s what non-skid socks were made for! And with these socks by Foot Traffic, you can have the best of both worlds—socks that are non-skid and fashionable. They come in all kinds of styles, from cats and ladybugs…

3. Grandma’s Secret Spot Remover

Our grandmas always seem to know best when it comes to, well, everything, and getting out stains is no different. With Grandma’s Secret Spot Remover, you can get out spots caused by everything from ink to grease. Plus, the 2-ounce size is handy for carrying around in your purse or car!

4. Hot/Cold Therapy Pad

Isn’t it the worst when we bump into something—let’s say the coffee table, for instance—and we need an ice pack, but we have to settle for using a bag of frozen vegetables instead? With this buckwheat seed-filled heartwarmer, you won’t need that bag of corn or peas. It can be used ice cold or hot, depending upon the ache or pain you have, and whether it’s a new bruise or a previous inflammation. Plus, the buckwheat seeds release heat or cold slowly. Sold!

5. No-Tie Shoe Laces

My shoelaces get intertwined or untied way too many times than I care to admit. But these look like the answer to my twisted-laces problem, and could work for you, too. I know what you’re thinking: Why didn’t I think of that?! So simple, yet so revolutionary.

Typically used for tri-athletes to get their shoes on quickly between the bike to run transition, these are a tested-and-true way to lace up quickly (and keep them tight).

6. Phone Lanyard

At some point, we’ve probably all dropped our phones. In fact, I did just last week and had to let it go—it was cheaper to get a new (used) phone than to fix the LCD screen. Now? Problem solved. Try this cell phone lanyard by Fabselection. It comes in all kinds of fun colors, from pink to orange to basic black.

7. Finger Guards

Do you love cooking, but don’t love the risk of cutting yourself in the process of doing all that prep work? We love these stainless steel finger guards by Pretty Handy. Sure, you may look like you’re wearing a Halloween costume on your hand, but your fingers will thank you later.

8. Spill-Proof Tumbler

I don’t know about you, but I spill coffee all the time in my car. After awhile, I got tired of scrubbing my car seats again and again. Then I found this tumbler. It works for both hot and cold drinks, and is made so that you won’t feel either the heat or the cold on its exterior. Genius! Of course, my favorite part is the leak-proof lid. And if aqua’s not your color, the tumbler also comes in pink, light purple and black.

Let’s end with wine. While we’re talking about tumblers, we have to include these wine tumblers. Similar to the ones above, you can finally avoid spills—and wine stains, too. They come in different colors, so you can easily keep track of everyone’s drinks.
