A Lightweight, Foldable Travel Bag and More Clever Items

An alternative to flushable wipes, a heat-resistant hair tool mat, and a sleek portable projector



This week, I found the most convenient, packable travel bag (it slides over your suitcase handle and can fold down to almost nothing!), an alternative to not-so-eco-friendly flushable wipes, the best projector I've ever tested, an easier way to carry your Stanley tumbler on-the-go, and a few more super-smart products that will make your life easier and so much more streamlined.

A Flushable Wipe Alternative

This handy spray is a more eco-friendly alternative to flushable wipes. It is the equivalent of 50 wipes. You simply spray your toilet paper a few times, and you have a safe-for-the-environment wipe without polyester or plastics that don't break down or biodegrade. Choose from seven scents!

This packable bag is great for travel (it has a sleeve on the back so you can slide it over your suitcase handle), packable (it's lightweight and folds down to a super tiny rectangle), and can also be used for trips to the gym, as a diaper bag, or for running errands. Plus, it's wrinkle-resistant, easy to store without taking up much space, and is super durable and tear-resistant.

A Sleek, Portable Projector

This easy-to-use, portable projector is one of the clearest, best-quality projectors I've tested. Unlike some others, this one doesn't need to be adjusted for a clear picture—you can put it in basically any position, and it automatically focuses. It also has a small footprint instead of something much larger and cumbersome, which makes setting it up or storing it a breeze. You can also use it as a gaming hub! It's perfect for movie night in the backyard during the warmer months or used as a replacement for a TV if you have a blank wall. It's also pre-programmed with streaming services, so you can just sign in and get to watchin'!
