Staying Healthy During Doctor’s Visits

January 11th, 2019 Comments off

Cold and flu season is in full swing now. To reduce the spread of viruses, musicians who perform on the road have a tip to stay healthy: avoid touching your fingers to your face. More tips: wash hands often, use hand sanitizer (try moisturizing sprays and new slim designs the size of a credit card) and wipe down surfaces such as shopping cart handles and airplane tray tables. If you do get sick, reduce contact with germs and bacteria at the doctor’s office by hanging your purse with a Clipa bag hanger. Use it on: counters, chairs, shelves, cabinets, exam tables, even window ledges. And if you’re getting blood drawn, you can use it at the check-in counter while filling out paperwork as well as on the chair’s padded armrests. It’s handy in restroom stalls, rails, even sinks at doctor’s offices, pediatric clinics and hospitals. ‘Got a question? Please visit the Frequently Asked Question section on our new website.

‘Packing for a Trip? Here are 10 Quick Travel Tips

May 21st, 2018 Comments off

1. If you travel frequently, sign up for TSA Pre-Check. It’s $85 for 5 years and will speed you through airports.

2. Pack a zippered pouch for in-flight essentials in case you need to stow your carry-on bag.

3. A soft-sided zip tote is easier to store under seats.

4. Make a list of versatile clothing that you can reuse. Choose items that don’t wrinkle much.

5. If you’re going on a longer trip, plan to wash your clothes on the road.

6. Rolling clothes (other than jeans) will save space in your bag.

7. Consider black or navy for bottoms and add color with scarves and accessories. Darker colors hide stains better.

8. Remove bottle bulk by putting supplements in snack-sized baggies. Pack 1 quart baggies (for wet, dirty clothing or opened items on the return trip) as well as earplugs, a sleep mask and headlamp.

9. If you returned from your last trip with unworn clothing, try to remove at least 3 pieces for shorter trips, more for international trips. Or take unwanted clothes and leave them at your destination. Make sure there is plenty of space to bring home souvenirs and gifts.

10. For hanging your backpack, handbag or other items almost anywhere anytime, a Clipa bag hanger makes the perfect travel companion. It holds up to 33 lbs., uses just a half an inch of space and weighs just 1.6 oz. To see all available models, simply click on the image.

You can reduce your exposure with hand sanitizer, wipes, washing hands well, and keeping your handbag off the floor wherever you go. A Clipa handbag hanger can be used at doctor’s offices, dental checkups, bathroom sinks and stalls where there isn’t a hook on the door. It’s also useful on shopping carts, in dressing rooms, and salon chairs to keep the bottom of your bag clean. Flu season can last until May–keep your immune system strong and your handbag clean for a happier Spring.

Minimalist Accessory for Maximum Use

The whole point of having a purse hook is being able to use it when you really need it. Often, that means places where old-fashioned hangers just won’t work. As these photos show, most won’t hang off a thick drink cup holder or work on a thin railing. They are designed to work primarily on tables. But think of all the places you go all year long. Being able to hang your bag on a boat while you snap a photo or hook it over a stall wall in a public restroom just makes sense. Hanging your bag off of a drink cup holder at a sports arena or in a theater makes things easier. Preventing contact with germs, water and dirt keeps bacteria away while it extends the life of your bag. Whether you’re carrying a beloved designer purse or a simple backpack, keep it clean, dry and beautiful with the world’s most versatile bag holder: Clipa.

It’s National Handbag Day

October 10th, 2016 Comments off

October 10th is National Handbag Day and at Clipa, that means celebrating our favorite accessory with a little TLC. Whether you have a large, roomy tote or a tiny crossbody, purses can be kept in tip top shape with these ideas:

If it’s been awhile since you’ve cleaned out the interior, take a towel, lay it on a dresser or bed, and remove the contents of your bag. If you have a mini vac for your keyboard or a handheld vacum and the bag’s interior is sturdy, vacum up tiny grains of sand or lint. Alternatively, a piece of packing tape can be used. If your bag has a soft, thin interior, such as satin, forgo the vacuuming and simply turn the bag over to remove any fine particles in the bag’s seams. Vinyl, cotton and canvas bags can be lightly sprayed with an unscented disinfectant, such as Lysol, to remove bacteria and viruses. The exterior of patent leather, pleather and nylon bags can be wiped down with a baby wipe or clean, soft cotton rag. If you have a suede or fine leather bag, a leather care expert at a shoe repair shop has products to clean and protect leather bags to extend the life of the bag.

Before placing items back in your bag, ask yourself if you really use everything you’re carrying around. As a general rule, any makeup older than 24 months (mascara and eyeliner, 3 months and nail color, 1 year) should be replaced. Some items may be better left in your car, gym bag, work, or home. Perhaps duplicates or travel sized versions can be purchased and left in these places instead of carried everywhere.

Finally, check your Clipa purse hanger. It has been tested to last for 10 years of daily use without tarnishing. It should be in great working condition, ready to keep your bag off the ground and away from germs, water, dirt and worse. If not, give us a call at 1-888-804-0661 or email service@clipa.us Because while today is National Handbag Day, for some of us, it’s every day of the year!
