Sanitizing Bracelet

Instead of attaching a mini bottle of hand sanitizer to each of your bags (kindergarten-style), you can wear this incognito bracelet. Each bead holds a small dose of a hand sanitizer for on-the-go disinfecting. Just pour your favorite sanitizer (bonus points if it's a fun color!) into the applicator bottle and use it to fill the beads one by one. Squeeze the beads into the palm of your hands when you're ready for a cleaning.
