5 Tools That Make Showering Easier

While a shower should be leisurely and relaxing—who has time for that? These innovative tools help get you in and out quicker so you can get on with the rest of your day.


Leg Stand: Mommy’s Helper Safe-er-Grip Foot Rest


Instead of pretending to be a gymnast and performing a balancing act or propping your foot up on the slippery shower wall to shave, say hello to this handy pedestal. The angled footrest has a suction cup that mounts right to the wall for a sturdy grip, but is easily removable should you need to take it off.

Two-In-One Body Cleanser: Olay Duo Soap


Body wash and a loofah come together to create one multi-tasking duo. Each sponge is infused with enough body wash to last up to 30 times and comes on a string so you can hang it in the shower to dry after each wash. No more trying to get your body gel to balance on the loofah before getting it to your skin.
