As we continue to wear face masks, regularly wash and sanitize our hands, and social distance, many of us find ourselves confronting unique "pandemic pain points." Maybe your glasses fog up every time you step outside with your mask, or you're constantly misplacing (and then replacing) your mini bottles of hand sanitizer. Below, we're sharing our favorite products that will help you overcome everyday inconveniences and make "the new normal" a bit easier.

Expertly avoid high-touch areas like doorknobs, keypads, elevator buttons and more with this clever tool from Craighill. The brass-crafted device is shaped like the Greek letter Sigma, so you can press buttons or hook it over door handles without actually making contact with germy surfaces. Just stick it on your keyring and wipe it down when you get home.
