  • Create a scent-sation

    When guests walk into your home, you want them to be greeted with a welcoming, pleasing scent. Let Sweet Grass Farm's fragrance sticks be your genie in a bottle.

    Fragrance sticks or reed diffusers have been popular for a while now, but some hit you Deb Lundington, Sweet Grass FarmDeb Lundington, Sweet Grass Farm over the head with a cloying, overpowering smell. Sweet Grass Farm's have just the right intensity. Deb Ludington, the founder of Sweet Grass Farm, insists on using only pure fragrance oils undiluted by water or fillers. Her fragrance sticks are easy to use and elegant to look at. The absorbent reeds wick up the oil, which evaporates when it hits the air and releases a discreet but sweet scent. If the sticks get dry, you just turn them upside down in the clear glass jar for a fresh wave of fragrance.

  • Smash your trash

    Ken Kreafle, Smash CanKen Kreafle, Smash CanSticking your foot in the trash is an effective way to compact the contents, but Ken Kreafle invented a much better solution with the Smash Can. It looks pretty much like an ordinary stainless-steel trash can, but the lid contains a clever surprise. A built-in cylindrical compactor descends into the can when you push on the lid, forcing down the garbage. You can compact twice as much trash into a single bag, without ever touching the mess or requiring electrical power.

    Ken's motivation for the Smash Can was to create a simple, effective solution to a nagging problem: the nearly constant need to IDEA 2010IDEA 2010 take out the trash. His creation won a prestigious IDEA award from the Industrial Designers Society of America (all week long we'll be featuring 2010 IDEA winners). The IDEA award is an impressive endorsement, but we wanted to see for ourselves how the Smash Can works.

    We found the perfect tester: Captain John Doherty of FishAye Trading Company. John is an avid fisherman and he Read More »from Smash your trash
