Wednesday—Good For You, Good For GoToobs!

These are the greatest little travel bottles!  

One of the gift items in Steve's TED bag this year was a GoToob.  I tried it out on my last trip to Orlando, and now I'm on board 100 percent!

My Lubriderm GoToob

11 Reasons Why GoToobs are Better Than any 
Other Travel Bottle

1.  Squeezability — Regular travel bottles are always too hard to squeeze, which makes them a real pain in the shower, plus it's hard to use all of the contents.  Made from food grade silicon, GoToobs are wonderfully soft and squeezable, which makes them economical and efficient.

2.  Easy to Fill — The wide opening at the top of the tube makes these bottles super-easy to fill.

3.  Built-in Labeling — GoToobs have a double-ring collar around the lid that can be adjusted to indicate the contents, e.g. soap, lotion, etc.  There is also a blank slot that can be used to write in your own contents.

4.  Non-drip lid — Non-drip means no mess!  Again, this feature makes the GoToob much easier to use because you don't have to worry about spills.

5.  Colors & sizes — GoToobs come in 5 semi-transparent colors of orange, blue, green, pink & white, and 3 airport approved carry-on sizes of 1.25 ounce, 2 ounce and 3 ounce.

You can fit 12 of the small bottles, 9 of the medium-sized bottles, and 6 of the large size bottles into a 1-quart Ziploc bag.  And, of course, you could combine sizes as needed.  Bottom line, you can fit a lot of GoToobs into a quart-size Ziploc for carry-on.  

6.  Lifetime Warranty — Humangear stands behind its products and guarantees quality.  If your GoToob does not work the way it's supposed to, you can return it, and the company will replace or repair the item free of charge.

7.  Suction cups — The 2-oz. GoToobs have a handy suction cup on the side so you can temporarily adhere the toob to a wall for hands-free convenience.

8.  Pricey, but worth it —You can purchase GoToobs at Target, The Container Store, Sears, Walgreens, Whole Foods, REI, Mountain Equipment Co-op, Eastern Mountain Sports, Flight 001, Walmart, LL Bean, Kohls, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Amazon Prime!

9.  Green-friendly—GoToobs are 100% BPA free

10.  Reusable & dishwasher safe — The toob and collar are top-rack dishwasher safe.  The cap should be hand washed in warm soapy water.

11.  Food safe—GoToobs make great little containers for food items, like sandwich condiments, salad dressings, and toppings.  Use them in bag lunches or picnic baskets!

Happy Travels!
