This Stay At Home Mom Has An Invention For You

Christmas Giveaway 2007 Sweepstakes

Stephanie left her career as a lawyer 6 years ago to be home with her two children.

And like many of the moms we feature here at “5 Minutes for Mom”, she decided to turn a problem into a product and add to her family’s income.

Go4-It TowelStephanie liked to exercise at the gym, but she hated placing her towel on the dirty floor or having it fall off the machine and land on the dirty floor.

So she solved the problem and invented a product that is great for all women and men who like to exercise.

Introducing the Go4-It Towel… A magnetic exercise towel with detachable pocket. The towel sticks to all exercise equipment so you can keep it near you and off the germy floor.

The detachable pocket holds up to 2 lbs. of your personal valuables such as your keys, ipod, cell phone, money, jewelry, gym card, etc.

The pocket and magnet are removable so that you can easily toss the towel in your washing machine.

Although the inspiration for the towel came from exercising at a gym, the uses are far broader. Here’s a few ideas of where the magnetic towel would come in handy:

  • Exercising on your own home gym equipment.
  • Playing tennis.
  • Shooting hoops at the basketball court.
  • Working on car repairs.
  • Jogging with your baby in a stroller.
  • And of course exercising at a public gym.

This clever invention makes a perfect Christmas gift. Visit to stock up and start checking names off your Christmas shopping list.

    If we stick it to the fridge, do you think the children would stop leaving their cute little finger prints everywhere?
