PhitGrips Review

Okay, I know that you are wondering what these things are. I am sure you have figured out by now that they are PhitGrips, but what in the hell is a PhitGrip, you are asking... I know you are. I was doing the same thing about two weeks ago.

Phit Grips are grips that fit around the handles of your grocery cart. And if you're a mom, you know why these are important. I have always heard that shopping cart handles have more germs than public restrooms.

From the founder and inventor of PhitGrips:

“Most infectious diseases are transmitted by contact. Since you don’t actually touch the of the grocery cart when using PhitGrips, germ transfer is not an issue. The end result is a cleaner, healthier shopping trip,” said Dawn Meifert, founder and inventor of PhitGrips. “Additionally, you don’t have to remember to bring your wet wipes or count on your local store to have refilled the dispensers.”

PhitGrips are made using liquefied rubber, then oxygen is injected to give it a light, cushiony feel. They were originally designed for gym equipment. They snap on and off of cart handles quickly and easily, and roll up into each other for quick storage. They can fit right in your purse, or hell, even your pocket!

I think this is the coolest part: the ink used to print the PhitGrip logo onto the grip is infused with a antimicrobial agent that helps to inhibit the growth and spread of bacteria. You just rub your hands together occasionally to spread the agent over your palms. When the logo wears off, it's time to get new PhitGrips!

Another plus, they are only $9.99 a pair, which isn't really too expensive when you consider the price of clorox wipes and stuff like that, that you usually use to wipe down cart handles. The only thing I think would make PhitGrips cooler would be if they came in different colors, maybe even patterns, because us mommies like pretty things lol!

Get Your Own! To buy your own set of PhitGrips, you know what to do. (If you don't, then click here.)

Thanks to PhitGrips for letting me try this product!

Disclosure: I received one set of PhitGrips in order to do my review. No other compensation was given. All opinions are mine :)


  1. I love this idea. I always cringe when having to grab a dirty grocery cart.

  2. This idea is great. I hate using those sanitized wipes on the carts.
