Every once in awhile you come across an invention so simple, yet so ingenious, you have to wonder “Why didn’t I think of that?”. Well, this is one of those inventions. I don’t do many reviews but I do enjoy doing them for new products that I really believe in…the GCap is one of those products.
[bctt tweet=”My favorite new invention…the GCap makes your child’s open milk/juice bottle spillproof!”]
If you’re a mom, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about! You give your child an open bottle of juice or milk but then can’t relax because all you can think of is the big mess looming in your immediate future. I’ve given my kids drinks when we’re out and about, but watching my 3 year old drink from an open bottle of milk in the back seat sends me into panic mode. It’s hot here in Florida and milk + hot car = one stinky mess!
That’s exactly how this product came to be. Nadine Savino is a stay at home mom who found herself in a similar situation but unlike me, she actually did something about it. She created The GCap, a simple silicon top that stretches to fit any bottle. Insert a straw at the top and your child can enjoy his or her drink without you worrying about the fact that you forgot to bring an extra change of clothes!
I jumped at the chance to try this product out for myself because I wanted to see how well it really worked. I’m a big fan of anything that can make my life more stress-free and I’m happy to say that it really does work.
Now when you give your child that container of milk or juice, you’ll have some piece of mind. Now it’s not completely fool-proof. If a bottle is left laying on its side for an extended period of time, it will leak and eventually you may have a little puddle. However, it would have to go unnoticed for awhile and you’ll never get a mess even close to the one on the left. This is what happened after several minutes of photography and the milk still came out very slowly. I don’t know about you but I’ll take this over the alternative any day!
I’m never leaving home without these in my purse again! You can also check out a live demonstration on Good Morning America, where the GCap was recently featured (you’ll find it about the 2:25 mark).
Want to try these for yourself? You can easily order the GCap here but Nadine and I have also teamed up to offer one lucky reader a GCap Family Pack (containing 5 GCaps and 5 protective travel cases). Just enter below for your chance to win:
What do you think of this new invention? If you’re the mom of a toddler, how excited are you to try these?
