Looking for something unusual and innovative? Of course you are! After all, isn't that why you are a part of the Daily Grommet Community? In case you didn't have time to follow us along on the Grommet discoveries this week, here is a quick recap of all five Grommets:
Plants thrive in the sky. Heads up…Just when you think you’ve seen every possible kind of household planter, we’ve found a modern showstopper that seems to defy gravity. The stunning ceramic Sky Planter suspends ferns, ivy, orchids, herbs and vegetables from above, filling the upper reaches of a room with beautiful growth. The Sky Planter has a sleek, contemporary feel that’s perfectly balanced by its organic contents.(Starting at $35) Buy the Boskke upside down Sky Planter here.
Simplify your safety. A home security system can give you peace of mind, but installation is costly and permanent. SimpliSafe isn’t. Any homeowner or apartment dweller can install this innovative new security system in minutes and relocate it when it’s time to move. The system uses a cellular wireless connection to stay in contact with SimpliSafe’s monitoring service, so you don’t need a dedicated phone line or hardwired components. And there’s no lengthy contract, either. ($199.95) Buy the SimpliSafe home wireless security system here.
DIY Waterproofing. Serious campers and hikers have been using Nikwax for years to clean and waterproof essential clothing and gear. Every Nikwax product is water-based, nontoxic, carbon-balanced, and easy to apply in the comfort of your own home.(Starting at $13.95) Buy Nikwax waterproofing products here.
Know your limits. SBACtrack is a personal breathalyzer that provides an estimate of blood alcohol content. The B70 is a personal screening device and the S75 Pro is a professional version. BACtrack CEO Keith Nothacker founded the company to give consumers a way to measure alcohol levels with the same technology that law enforcement and healthcare providers use to screen for alcohol. (Starting at $70) Buy the BACTRACK professional and personal pocket breathalyzers here.
Lunette. Let’s start with the obvious question: What is this thing? Lunette is a menstrual cup, a reusable alternative to tampons and pads that collects the menstrual flow rather than absorbs it. The cup can be worn continuously for up to 12 hours, including overnight, before emptying it. ($39.95) Buy the Lunette silicone menstrual cup here.
