Poo-pourri Traps Crappy Smells in the Bathroom


Consider yourself lucky and somewhat extraordinary if you don’t stink up the entire bathroom after you do a number two. Poop is poop, and it’s going to stink, regardless of whose bottom it came out of.

Coming to the rescue is Poo-pourri, a spray that promises to neutralize the odors that might linger around your bowl, even after you’ve flushed. It’s not like most other sprays which try to cover up the smell with a stronger fragrance. Rather, it stops the smells from escaping the bowl in the first place.

Shower Head Prompts People to Take Shorter Showers, Saves Water

Uji Shower

How long is a typical shower for you? Seven minutes is apparently ideal. At least, that’s the figure that Uji’s inventors are working with. But first thing’s first, what’s Uzi? It’s a shower head with a built-in lighting system. The light turns from green to red in a span of seven minutes, which basically signals the person bathing to wrap things up (and wrap himself or herself in a towel!)

Nihilist Toothpaste: No Flavor, No Color, Nothing–Just Paste

Nihilist Toothpaste

Toothpaste is available in all sorts of flavors, colors, and varieties these days. Heck, they’re not just limited to paste, either, because liquid and gel toothpastes exist now. However, if you’re not a fan of blue, green, or tri-colored toothpastes that sometimes comes with flecks of “cooling crystals” or whitening strips, then you might want to check out Accoutrements’ Nihilist toothpaste.

It’s toothpaste the way toothpaste should be. It’s got no flavor, no color, no thing–just plain old white paste in minimalist packaging.

Stick ‘Em Magnetic Towels: Feel Free to Stick ‘Em Up

Magnetic Towel

Towels. You need them but you might not necessarily have space for them in your kitchen. Getting some of those stick-on plastic hooks is one option, but imagine what a pain it’s going to be if you remove them and peel off a layer of pain with it. You could  hang them around your refrigerator handles, but then you have to be prepared to pick them up from the floor a lot because that’s where they’ll usually be after a few people walk past the fridge and inadvertently brush past it, causing it to slide to the floor.

And then there’s the Stick ‘Em Magnetic Towels, which seems like the most logical solution of the bunch.

Morninghead Gets Rid of Bed Head in Seconds


You know how your hair sticks up in bunches and random angles when you get out of bed? It’s called bed head and it’s pretty unsightly, especially if you’re heading out in a few and don’t have the time to wash your hair again. Most people just turn on the tap and put their heads under it as a quick fix. Others sprinkle water all over their crowns in an attempt to pat down stray strands.

But there’s an easier way: just get the Morninghead.

Smart Bracelet Lets Doctors Know If They’re Washing Their Hands Correctly

IntelligentM Bracelet

Hygiene is important, but it becomes an even bigger deal when you’re in the healthcare industry. Even then, you have to remember that doctors are human, too, and they sometimes fail to wash their hands as thoroughly as they should, especially when they’re in a rush. That’s where the IntelligentM bracelet comes in.

It’s a smart bracelet that vibrates when its wearer has washed his or her hands sufficiently.

Dry Hands Lets You Wash Then Dry Your Hands At Once For Added Convenience

Dry Hand

Washing your hands in a public place is usually a two-step process. The first is the actual handwashing proess itself, while the second involves either a paper towel or an electronic hand dryer to dry your hands up. Combining both and turning this everyday task into a one-step action is the Dry Hand, which is a faucet and dryer in one.

Tongue2Teeth Mouth Accessory Lets You Clean Your Teeth With Your Tongue


Ever run your tongue over your teeth after not brushing them for a day? It’s pretty gross. But what if instead of grossing yourself out, you could clean them, discreetly, while doing just that? The Tongue2Teeth hygiene product is a tooth cleaning product that slips over part of your tongue, and allows you to get at least somewhat clean while on the go. The product has a coating that kills bacteria, as well as freshens your breath and whitens your teeth. The bristles presumably do a little mechanical abrasion to remove some of the harder deposits as well, though we really think you shouldn’t use this as a replacement for a full toothbrush.

There’s no word on pricing or availability, but you can sign up on their website to be notified of when they’ll be on shelves.

Shittens Are Mittens For Wiping Bums


The human race can be a pretty sad lot if in the year 2013 a product like the Shittens needs to be invented. It’s a set of disposable mittens made from hygienic wipe tissue, and lined with anti-bacterial agents. They can be used to wipe your own behind and make sure you get no doodoo on your fingers, or better yet, to wipe the bum of a baby. Which makes more sense than to assume it’s for yourself. Because, really… everyone can wipe their own bums without getting poo on their hands, right? Everyone.

But to be honest, we’re not sure this is a real product. It’s an IndieGogo campaign, and reading through it, it looks like a joke. Heck, it even seems to have gotten its start on the Howard Stern show with Mark Cuban in attendance. Still, we can’t be sure. It’s just crazy enough to work.
