UV Protective Laundry Detergent

I'm a sunblock obsessive so I'm constantly spraying people with SPF when they're not looking but sometimes they don't like it. Radiant 3-in-1 Colour Care, a laundry detergent sold in Australia makes sun protection easier with the addition of Tinosorb FD, a chemical compound with powerful UV absorbing properties. Clothing washed with Tinosorb blocks about 96% of UV rays, both UVA (aging and CANCER) and UVB (tanning and CANCER).
The detergent isn't available in the US yet, but Rit SunGuard, which uses the same chemical compound can be added to a load of laundry to add the same UV protective properties. SunGuard will add UPF 30 (ultraviolet protection factor, like SPF, only for fabrics) to the clothing that will last for up to 20 launderings. Just because you're covered up with a t-shirt doesn't mean you're protected from the sun: a typical white t-shirt only offers UPF 5.

The SouSou Tabi

Tabi are those split socks worn with kimonos, and it seems that if you find a pair that fits, it's like walking with gloves on your feet instead of mittens. Kyoto brand Sou Sou has added a rubber sole to tabi and launched them in all sorts of fancy patterns and colours.
Many might find them silly, but are any of you heading to Japan? Do you think you'll have space left in your suitcase on the way back to bring some for me? Are you in Japan? Can you send me lilac tabi? Or maybe just help me to understand how to order them?

Ultrasonic Aromatherapy Fountain

The Discovery Ultrasonic Aromatherapy Fountain is a humidifier that uses normal tap water infused with any essential oils you like to create clouds of cool (meaning not heated), scented moisture. There are no chemicals, it's the bowl itself that changes colors. For night, I'd put in some chamomile and hope it would seep into my pores and help me sleep. I also hope the light is softer than the rave beacon it appears to be in this animated gif.
$39.95 at the Discovery Store.
