In every house, there exist certain things only a mom can find. Don’t ask us to explain why — we can’t. But the fact that certain household items are invisible to the naked eye — unless that eye is in a mom’s head — is truly one of life’s greatest mysteries.

How do we solve it?

The Toilet Paper Dispenser

Usually perched on the wall right next to the toilet, these pieces of hardware are invisible to everyone in the house, except mom. Yes, moms are the only ones who can find and replace rolls of toilet paper. It’s a mystery of nature. Someone please solve it.


Mom! Where’s my phone? Honey, have you seen my phone? Moms everywhere think the same thing when they hear this: LOOK FOR IT YOURSELF. 

The Dishwasher

Dirty dishes somehow find their way to coffee tables, countertops, dining room tables, and even sometimes, the sink. It’s the journey from the sink to the dishwasher that eludes most every person in the house, except mom. The only explanation is that no one else can find it.

Cleaning Products Of Any Kind

There’s a cabinet full of some amazing stuff, family! There are these plastic bottles, and when you press the spray nozzle, an incredible thing happens! The stuff that comes out of it cleans almost anything.

That Other Sock

It actually exists. It’s just that no one even attempts to find it. So when you’re T-minus two minutes from having to leave the house, inevitably someone will be yelling, “Mom, have you seen my other sock?” No, but she would if she tried to look for it — which is what you should be doing right now instead of screaming for her to find it.

The Grocery Store

Contrary to popular opinion, grocery stores let you browse their aisles, fill your cart, and pay — even if you’re not a mom. I know! It’s crazy!

Car Keys

Keys can only be located after a mom has verbally listed every, single, place they could possibly be. It’s as if only a mom’s brain is wired to remember this drill.


Why does everyone in the house stare into the refrigerator like they’re trying to uncover its soul? And then after a few minutes, inevitably someone will blurt out, “There’s no food in here!” Hmm. Why is mom the only person who can see that the fridge is fully stocked and fashion a meal out of its ingredients?

Enter technology. Did you know something actually exists that makes certain things visible to other humans in the house again? Not all, but some. It’s called Tile, and it’s genius.

It uses Bluetooth tracking to help your family find the things their naked eyes refuse to see, like their keys, wallets, and book bags.


You simply put your Tile tracker on the things you lose most, and you can ring them from the Tile app on your phone. If your Tile is within the 100-foot Bluetooth range, it will play a loud tune until you find it.

And if it’s your phone you can’t find, all you need to do is double-press one of your Tiles to make your lost phone ring — even on silent.

If you keep your app running, Tile will automatically remember the last time and place you had the item you can’t find now, so you know where to start looking.

Okay, so it may not get dishes into the dishwasher, toilet paper restocked, or a meal made, but it will eliminate the hours moms spend every month looking for things their family can’t see.
