Touch less filth.
Have you been trying to touch less stuff in public these days? Because we’ve been trying to touch less stuff in public these days.
And honestly, that might not be a bad habit long-term. Hopefully before too long we’ll all be able to go through the day without thinking about what six feet apart looks like, but holy cow there are plenty of good reasons not to touch the elevator buttons in the parking garage no matter what else is happening in the world. Those things always smell like they celebrated the grand opening by smashing a bottle of pee instead of champagne and don’t seem to get better with time.
Bathroom door handles, keypads, you name it—they all have the potential to be icky at best and horrifying at worst. Scientifically speaking, the only surface more reliably gross is a cell phone screen, but we try not to think about that.
Anyway, this handy little tool can help you navigate that ickiness and/or horror by putting a tiny bit of distance between you and the stuff you’d really rather not touch. It fits on your keychain, so it’ll always be there when you need it and its unique shape can help you poke, prod, and pull your way through whatever obstacle course of bacteria you might face.
You can’t avoid every germ, microbe, and micro-droplet of elevator pee that you might come across in a day, but you can avoid bunch of it. Grab yourself a 2-pack and share the other with a friend. You two can greet each other by tapping them together. It’s called a 2020 Fist Bump.
