We created Earhoox because we’re all about lifehax. We’re always after a better, more efficient, more awesome way of doing things. And we’re not alone. There are other quiet achievers out there taking life’s day-to-day problems and solving them with simple yet brilliant new ways of doing things. Just like us.
We took a look around to find some other small gadgets that solve some of life’s most persistent issues. Here are a few that will change your life for the better – just like Earhoox.
Blow off some steam with a mirror wiper.
We bet you love those wiper blades on your car. They’re pretty handy for wiping away rain, ice and fog. Just imagine a world where wiper blades came fitted as standard to your bathroom mirror. We’re not quite there yet, but there is such thing as a mirror wiper. And we don’t mean a towel. It’s a blade with a suction cup attachment. Stick the cup to your mirror, then sweep the blade to wipe away that post-shower steam. Now you can check out what you look like your Earhoox any time you want. View on Amazon
Avoid shower burn with a faucet thermometer.
Finding that shower sweet spot between boiling hot and freezing cold is a serious skill. While adults can use minor burns as a water temperature indicator, a bit more care needs to be taken with kids and infants. Click-on faucet thermometers take the painful guesswork out of showering, bathing or even filling up bottles. Just click and go. View on Amazon
Dish up your pizza with minimum tools.
Pizza night is the best night. And pizza cutters do a pretty decent job of doing what a knife just can’t. But what about dishing up your pizza? Deep dish pizza goes from pan to plate pretty easily, but New York style? Not so much. What if…you could cut and serve in one fell swoop? Such magic exists in the form of pizza scissors. They’re basically kitchen scissors with an egg lifter attached, and they’ll mean the end of accidentally folded-over pizza slices. Isn’t it great when one product does two awesome things?

Hold back the tears with an onion holder.
Onions are the gift that keeps on giving. They get in your eyes, on your tastebuds and on your hands. There’s nothing like that stinging, pungent aroma that yes, you chopped some onions for dinner hours ago. If only you didn’t have to touch the onion while you chopped it, right? How about an onion slicer? This multi-pronged delight holds your onion still as you cut, while also helping you slice it into even rings. Never worry about getting onion juice in your eyes – or on your Earhoox again. View on Amazon
Keep a handle on things with a smartphone handle band
Fixies aren’t going anywhere, and neither are smartphones. But put the two together, and you get an awkward ride that involves steering while trying to navigate maps, music or text messages. Minimize distractions and maximize safe riding with a rubberized smartphone handle band. It ties your phone to your handlebars for non-slip cycling and ease of use. It’s kind of like Earhoox…but for your phone. View on Amazon
