PBest Powerbank for Traveling is the myCharge HubXtra

If you can’t live without your phone or tablet while on the go then surely you have a powerbank, portable charger. I actually have a purse with one sewn in and I carry another type that charges via the lighter in my car and I keep it there if the boys or my husband also need one when we are out all day. myCharge is here with the best powerbank for traveling and I’ll tell you why that is.

Portable chargers are so handy and make my work easier. When I am out all day or traveling I need photos that could potentially be part of a post or story. But there is one problem I have had with the powerbanks I own. I have grabbed it and my phone and forgot the cord to charge from.

As with any new product for technology that arrives for our convenience there is always more that can be perfected and myCharge has done that with their HubXtra. Why do I call this the best? There are several really great reasons:

  • It has the cords included! There is both a lightning and Micro USB for all the popular phone/tablet brands
  • It has built-in wall prongs for easy charging
  • It is slim and fits in my purse
  • It charges up to 65% faster than competitors

With Mother’s day then Father’s day approaching this is a fantastic gift idea. The myCharge HubXtra portable charger that I call the best powerbank for traveling retails for only $69.99 at myCharge.com. I also found it on Amazon for the same price.

Gift Ideas for the Home - Wild Eye Designs Marble & Wood Board

With Mother’s Day arriving and Father’s Day right behind we are back to having to find gifts for our beloved parents. My Mom and Dad raised my 2 brothers, sister and I and all together we gave them 5 grandsons so far. Because we all live within 70 miles of each other we get together often as a family for birthdays, holidays and celebrations. Needless to say, gift ideas for the home or kitchen are always a hit and used often.

I am using my Finish Rinse Aid to sanitize my son’s bath toys. They constantly sit wet and get grimy so a few times a year I run them through the dishwasher and air dry them. Now if you use the Finish Rinse Aid in your dishwasher you won’t need to dry your plastics when you put them away! I also do this with sand toys and pool toys at the beginning and end of summer. It’s a great way to give them a good sanitation.

I also grab his stuffed animals he uses most frequently and tie them up in pillow cases and run through the washing machine and dryer. There is a similar Woolite stacking deal at Target. It is a great way to get these ‘friends’ washed without fading or ruing them. If you contain them in a pillow case they wash very well without any flaws. Find all of these great deals at Target.

What spring cleaning tip do you have for keeping the kids stuff clean and sanitized?
