Inventive Moms Prevent the Spread of Bacteria With the Germy Worm

Once upon a time people were taught to cough and sneeze into their hands. But since most people don’t wash their hands after populating them with biological matter, hands just become a great way of transmitting those germs to others.

Coughing or sneezing into the crook of your arm can become messy and gross. The Germy Worm for children is a much cleaner solution.

An inventive mom has solved this problem by making the "Germy Wormy," a soft, disposable sleeve worn by children that captures airborne coughed or sneezed germs.

Overall, it seems like a good idea, but I have a sneaky suspicion kids would be more than willing to show and tell their Germy Wormys to each other. Stats for Sickness-Fighting Sleeves Trending: Older & Mild
