• armed and dangerous (only to germs): the sneeve

    Getting a cold is nothing to sneeze at it. And if you happen to live in a home with kids, chances are someone will come down with a case of the sniffles at some point this season. While we’ve been teaching our kids to cough and sneeze into the crook of their arm to prevent the spread of germs, it doesn’t exactly contain–shall we say–the contents of a running nose so well. Enter the Sneeve, a slip-on arm band that fits over a child’s shirt and gives kids ages 3-8 a designated spot for all those sneezes and coughs. Made from an anti-microbial material, it’s designed to kill most bacteria and viruses on contact. And because the Sneeve is disposable, it’s meant for one-time usage and doesn’t need to be washed. That may just minimize your daily laundry–and make for a cleaner, germ-free wash the next time around.

    In a Nutshell: Let’s see if this latest fashionable, functional trend catches on. The Sneeve will be available at Rite-Aid and can be purchased online at TheSneeve.com.
