Flip-It caps let you use every last drop from bottles

Whether it’s lotion, ketchup, syrup, or something else, we’ve all experienced that moment when we squeeze a bottle and nothing comes out of the spout even though there’s product still left inside the bottle.

IQAir Atem personal air purifier review

I suffer from seasonal allergies and live in an area where avoiding the trees and grasses that are the catalyst for my symptoms is impossible.  The dry air in Colorado also makes for a very dusty indoor environment so between the great outdoors and the dusty indoors, my stuffiness and irritated eyes are on round the clock. …

Jigger Bottle Stoppers are the perfect gift for the home-bartending chemist

As a chemist, I have a weakness for laboratory glassware or items that even mimic labware.  This set of Jigger Bottle Stoppers caught my eye, because they combine barware shapes – whiskey glass, snifter, hurricane, and martini glass, respectively – with a labware feel.  Measurement markings both add to the lab feel, and they serve …

Add a decorative “nest” for your Nest thermostat

If you’re replacing a big, clunky thermostat with a Nest, you may find yourself with a patch of unpainted or un-wallpapered wall that the Nest isn’t going to cover.  If you aren’t aware that Nest comes with a rectangular white plate to cover up such things ( ahem…) or you want a different look, perhaps …

Samsung’s Chef Collection proves that the future of kitchens is customizeable

Samsung has been making a name for themselves lately by taking kitchen appliances and transforming them into essentially gigantic gadgets – for example, their Family Hub 2.0 smart fridge has a large touchscreen display at the center of it which helps transform the fridge into the center of the kitchen.

Chamberlain MyQ Wi-Fi hub and Home Bridge Review

If your home is anything like mine, we don’t use our front door much. More times than not, we come and go through the garage door, even when not using a vehicle. Inevitably, the door gets left open, creating an ideal habitat for many friendly (and not so friendly) woodland creatures. This doesn’t happen much …
