As we begin to re-enter the world, we’re proceeding with caution. These days, we have a new checklist before we run out the door. What was once the standard ‘phone, keys, wallet’ check has now become ‘phone, keys, wallet, mask, hand sanitizer, gloves.’ But in the midst of a heatwave sweeping most of the country, sticking your sweaty palms into gloves can feel especially uncomfortable. Luckily, there’s another way to avoid touching door handles, subway poles, and everything else you come in contact with.

There’s a tool (starting at just $8!) that eliminates the need for gloves and still protects you from exposure to germs and viruses. The Forno No-Touch Door Opener fits on any key ring. It features a loop for your finger and a hooked prong attachment that’s designed to help you open and close doors and drawers, push buttons, and more — touch-free.

A #1 new release on Amazon, this touch-less tool comes in packs of 2, 3, 5, or 6 and already has a near-perfect 4.4-star rating from over 300 reviewers. 

“With the COVID-19 pandemic, this is a handy gadget that’s lightweight, easy to carry, easy to use with touch pads and keypads to help keep you safe,writes a 5-star reviewer. “This is especially helpful for someone who has a poor immune system. It takes some getting used to to open doors with these, but elevator buttons and keypads at grocery stores and gas stations are a breeze. You can even sign your name. Overall, these are handy little gadgets that keep you from touching so many surfaces. Even though they are self-cleaning because they are brass, I still wipe the end off with disinfectant when done using.”

Another reviewer calls the key “a necessity in times like these,” writing, “I thought these were overhyped, but they’re not — they’re worth every penny. I don’t leave the house without mine now.”
