Fall’s Back with Backpacks

Fall is here and for many of us, that means backpacks. Not just for school, work or travel, backpacks are the comfortable way to be hands-free when you’re out and about. And in the age of Covid-19, that’s more important than ever. Thankfully, crisp autumn days may mean that the virus may not stay on surfaces as long, thanks to windy, cooler, wetter days. The virus can remain in the air for 3 hours and on stainless steel up to 3 days.

A Clipa bag hanger on your backpack loop or one of its straps makes it even easier to prevent contact with germs, viruses, dirt and bacteria on campus or at the office. It hangs most anywhere in seconds, including tables, auditorium desks and counters. Amp up your protection with hand sanitizers containing at least 60% alcohol: according to the CDC, using them and washing hands often can help you stay healthy. And when you’re washing up, the Clipa can hang up to 33 lbs., in just a half an inch of space from sinks, stall walls even rails.

Just how important is it to keep your hands clean? A recent Prevention.com study found some surfaces had more germs than others, including: gas pumps (71%), mailbox handles (68%), escalator rails (43%), and ATM buttons (41%). With a change of seasons (and possibly your bag to a backpack), staying healthy is priority #1.

Timely Tips for a Sniffle-Free Trip

colds, flu and virus tips

Nothing ruins a vacation like getting sick. Here are some tips to stay healthy away from home this season:

  • Use the first public bathroom stall if its available–its actually the least used, which means fewer germs
  • If there’s no trash can near the door of the restroom, wrap the door handle with paper towel and drop it outside of the restroom in the first available trash can
  • Some surfaces are seldom cleaned (think ATM pads, gas station pumps, the stylus at store checkouts, restaurant pagers) so use hand sanitizer.
  • Wipes in a baggie or a spray are great for airplane trays and the tops of seats, especially those along the aisle, which are the most often touched by passengers.
  • Direct the air nozzle to circulate around—not directly on—you when you first sit down on the plane.
  • Try not to touch your face with your fingers after touching multiple surfaces—many viruses enter through the eyes, nose and mouth this way.
  • A Clipa bag hanger can prevent contact with germs. It stores right on the bag strap for use in seconds. Works sinks, counters, tables, bathroom doors, lavatory rails, airport carts and rolling cases. Discover more ideas by visiting our “how it works” page.

Be More Stylish in 2020 with 2-in-1 Accessory

Is one of your resolutions to be a more conscious consumer, buying useful, long-lasting items that provide value in multiple ways? Since 2009, the Clipa bag hanger bracelet has been both a purse hook and a bangle bracelet that can be worn alone or stacked with bangles or charm bracelets. This 2-in-1 feature is popular because you always know where your purse hook is– on your wrist–and you can hang your bag in seconds virtually anywhere.

Many of our styles use a “forever finish”, a Physical Vapor Deposition or PVD finish usually found in the jewelry industry.

But the Clipa is much more than functional jewelry. It’s been thoughtfully designed to extend the life of your bag or backpack by preventing contact with germs, water and dirt. Store it on your bag’s strap, hook it to your purse’s D or O rings or wear it on your arm. Simple and elegant, it works in dozens of places in less than a half an inch of space.

So if your plans for 2020 include travel, a client meeting or presentation, dining out, movies, shows, sporting events or perhaps welcoming a baby, remember the Clipa bag hanger bracelet.
