Here we are in September, already. Time sure does fly by when you're having fun! Even though kids are back in school, there's still little bit of time left to enjoy a few warm days here and there. Of course fall brings in a whole new set of activities such as apple and pumpkin picking, corn mazes, etc. (Oh how I love this time of year!). Whether you're visiting the petting zoo in the summertime or enjoying a harvest festival in the fall, there's going to come a time when you'll need to wash your hands. If you're enjoying an outdoor activity, access to a sink may not be available. When this happens we typically rely on good ol' hand sanitizing wipes to solve the problem, but I also found another cool alternative that is just as good...Bottle Blasters!
Now you may be wondering what in the world is a Bottle Blaster? Simply put, it's a cap that screws onto your average size plastic water bottle. Of course this is no ordinary cap, since it has nine tiny holes on the top that allow it create an actual shower effect!
Picture yourself trying to wash your hands using a bottle of water with just the cap off. As soon as you tip that bottle, the water is just going to come splashing out, causing a lot of waste. This is not a good thing if you are sharing the one bottle to wash multiple hand washes. You may not even finish washing one set of hands when the bottle suddenly runs out of water. When screwing a Bottle Blaster onto the top of that same water bottle, you can create a steady sprinkler flow that actually conserves all that water you would have otherwise wasted.
Here's a video that can give you a more visual idea of how it works:
For added convenience each cap contains a small a small metal claw clasp so you could actually keep it on your key chain. The cap is made out of sturdy BPA free plastic, so I don't have to worry about them breaking if they get bopped around during our travels. Plus, they're made right here in the United States. Each cap has two sides to accommodate different types of bottle opening threads. While they may not fit every single water bottle on the market, I've found that they do work on a lot of the standard ones that I personally use. They can even fit on certain types of canteens and bladder bottles.
Here are some of the ways a Bottle Blaster may come in handy:
- While camping (for cleaning items, hands, and even as a makeshift shower)
- During fishing trips
- After sports activities
- Cleaning dog paws on a muddy day
- Diaper cleanups
- Cooling off on a hot day
- Cleaning dirty windshields
- Watering plants and flowers
- Cleaning boo-boos
- It can even be used for drinking without the need to place your mouth on the actual bottle
- The list can go on and on...
I received most of my Bottle Blasters in Volt Yellow, but did get a sneak peek at this hot pink version, which I really like:
They also come in this cool Camo Green and a new Slate Gray will soon be released:
Even better is the company's partnership with The Last Well, a non-profit organization in Texas that has made it a goal to provide clean water and the Gospel to everyone in Liberia, Africa by the year 2020. I can always appreciate a company that stands for a good cause, especially one that serves the Lord.
We've been taking our Bottle Blasters on all of our latest outings, days at the park, the NYS Fair, and everywhere else. This is such a neat little invention and they really do come in handy, especially when out and about with a toddler. A three-pack typically costs $12.99, but right now they're having a huge sale where you can get a pack for only $5.00 by using promo code BBYP5DOL.
