5 Problem-Solving Products
Evolved Chip-and-Dip Bowl
Just in time for March Madness, Ärta’s space-saving ceramic Tasto bowl is multidip equipped, thanks to three snap-on silicone cups.
To buy: $35 (On backorder until 3/25), momastore.org.
Pumpable Laundry Detergent
Method’s new super-concentrated detergent can be pumped directly into the washing machine (four pumps for a full load), leaving your other hand free to―phew!―remove that crayon hiding in your son’s pocket.
To buy: $15 for 20 ounces, methodlaundry.com for stores.
Solar Charging Case
Somehow that sad low-battery bar at the top of your iPhone shows up only when a charger is nowhere in sight. Cut the cord dependence with the Solarcharger. The solar-powered charging case and protective cover fits the iPhone or the iPod Touch and comes in four color options.
To buy: From $70, novothink.com.
Portable Pet Bowls
Fido can’t pack his own weekend-away bag (the poor guy doesn’t have thumbs, after all). But if he could, he would reach for the portable Pet Trek Traveler food- and-water-bowl combo to stay fed, hydrated, and entertained (the toy bone pops out of the handle).
To buy: $16, pettrek.net.
Cardstar iPhone App
Enter your frequent-buyer and frequent-flier account numbers (for grocery stores, drugstores, airlines, and more) into this app. The program will re-create the scannable bar code right on your iPhone screen so you can claim your rewards even if you forget your card.
To buy: Free at iTunes.com.
