Snowy days are on the way, and while this wintry weather means we get to show off all our favorite accessories, it also means we can expect to come stomping into our homes, sopping wet, every evening. Chilled-to-the-bone fingers and toes aren’t just uncomfortable — they can weaken your immune system, making you more vulnerable to the common cold viruses going around. Plus, you lose a lot of body heat through the top of your head and wearing a hat that’s soaking wet in freezing temps only makes things worse. That extra body chill increases your automatic stress response, which leaves you more susceptible to illness as well because it compromises your immune system.

So instead of putting on icy wet socks, gloves and hats each morning (because let’s face it — most city apartments don’t come equipped with washers and dryers), we have a genius solution for you. Enter TheEcoDryer, a simple device you place on top of a heat vent in your floor (or even on your wall) that channels the hot air you’re already using to warm your home into your wet socks, gloves, hats and more. It effortlessly dries them from the inside out in no time and it doesn’t require you to spend any more than you already do on your electric bill in the winter months.



Karen Smoots, a working mother of two boys, avid skier and survivor of long, cold Michigan winters, developed TheEcoDryer while trying to find an effective and efficient way to dry her family’s wet winter gear. TheEcoDryer is made of 100 percent recycled materials and has Sanford antimicrobial protection to inhibit 99 percent of bacteria and fungi growth in wet gear. Starting at just $18.99, this cool contraption comes in both white and tan and floor and wall models.

Since it’s equipped with six 7-inch ventilated nozzles, TheEcoDryer allows you to dry all of your winter accessories simultaneously. And thanks to the simplicity of the design, it can safely dry most materials, including synthetics, leather, fleece, wool, neoprene, canvas, cashmere and other delicate fabrics.

Who’s ready to stay dry, toasty and healthy all winter long?!
