Not so hot

ScaldSafe hot water sensors are inexpensive devices designed to ensure that no one in your home is burned with hot water from tub, shower or sink faucets.

The devices automatically cut off water that reaches 114 degrees. To restart, press a button to drain the hot water, then turn the water back on, remixing to a safe temperature.

Every year, some 37,000 children 14 or younger are treated in emergency rooms for scalding burns, says a spokesperson for Resources Conservation Inc., the manufacturer of ScaldSafe.

The faucet device is $6, the shower sensor, $12.99, and the tub spout, $24.99.

They're installed in seconds with no special tools and are widely available at hardware stores.

No more rush to brush

Jordan Magic toothbrush is a new product for kids who don't brush their teeth long enough. The handle changes color from heat generated by the hand during brushing. The process takes two minutes, if it's gripped properly. Widely available for $2.49.
