We all like products that make our lives easier -- those time-saving, energy-conserving, productivity-increasing items that make us more efficient, better organized or offer some other “genius” solution to a “Why didn’t I think of that?” problem. And most of all, we like those products to be hands-free.
Check out these 8 extra-handy hands-free products:
Take your pup on a walk, run or hike with this hands-free dog leash. An adjustable band goes around the waist and a two-handle bungee leash attaches to the dog. Comes in 8 different color combinations and is best for medium and large dogs. Even comes with a lifetime guarantee!
Stash your trash! Like magic…this 45-liter brushed stainless steel trashcan with sensor opens with a wave of the hand. Operates for up to one-year on AA batteries. Space-saving, too: its half-round design lets it fit against the wall.
One reviewer called Packbands the “Amazing little product you had NO idea you needed!” Until you do…When you travel, use a Packband to hook your garment bag to your rolling luggage. Attach your jacket, sweater or scarf to your backpack – you’ll save space and not leave items behind. Packbands keep yoga mats rolled, outdoor gear secure and computer cords and cables contained. If you've used Velcro straps, rubber bands or bungee cords, you’ll switch to silicone Packbands for hands-free freedom.
Looking for a stylish phone accessory that lets you function hands-free and reduces the possibility of dropping your phone or having it stolen? Keebos is the answer. This crossbody phone case keeps your phone easily accessible, has an adjustable strap so you can wear it as a necklace or crossbody, has a pouch for credit cards and cash, and includes a handy finger loop for extra security when calling or taking photos. Comes in a variety of colors. For Apple and Samsung phones.
Ring Sling Baby Carrier
Probably nobody needs “hands-free” more than new parents. A Ring Sling is a simple, one-size-fits-all garment that mom, dad or caregiver wears over one shoulder, looped through two rings. Baby snuggles close in this easily adjustable sling and can be in the carrier from 8 to 35 pounds. Ring Slings can be found in different fabrics and patterns on Etsy, Target and Kyte Baby websites, among others.
Remember when you used to have to get up from the sofa to change the channel? With this new Fire TV Cube, just sit tight. You don’t even have to click the remote. Just ask Alexa to turn on the TV, dim the lights and play your show. You can control a compatible sound bar, A/V receiver and change live cable or satellite channels…with your voice. You can even ask Alexa to check the weather, turn off the lights, set timers and reminders and more – even when the TV is off.
Old school is high style these days. Once mocked as the attire of the older and dowdier, fanny packs are the new hip fashion accessory. Keep your phone, keys, credit cards and other small necessities close at hand…but hands-free! Wear it around your waist, around your neck or as a crossbody bag. Patagonia’s take on the fanny pack aligns with their “outdoor gear” specialty but works with everyday casual wear looks.
Be in your bubble! Wearable and comfortable, with deep, clear sound, the SoundWear™ Companion® speaker is designed to keep you connected to your music, calls, and the world around you. Use it for clear, natural-sounding phone calls or accessing your phone's Siri or your Google Assistant. Runs up to 12 hours per charge.
