From a delicious sweet Grommet to a sleek storage belt, this week's Grommets have a little something for everybody.
Caramel-icious Confections. Like dulce la leche (a traditional caramel sauce made with cow’s milk), all of the Fat Toad caramel sauces start with milk and sugar. But here, of course, the milk is from goats and the sugar is organic. Choose the original flavor (simply milk and sugar), or go for coffee bean, vanilla bean or cinnamon for an extra flavor kick.(Starting at $8.95) Buy Fat Toad Farm's cajeta gourmet caramel here.
Don't Let the Bed Bugs Bite. It’s a unsettling fact that allergens like pollen, mold spores and dust collect in bedding. Even more disturbing? Dust mites can colonize your mattress and pillows by the billions. Forget the monster under your bed. It’s the monsters inside your bedding that are really scary.
MicronOne fabric has an extremely tight weave that blocks anything larger than one micron from passing through. There’s no plastic feel, like a lot of allergy-blocking materials, yet the fabric still keeps dust mites and their itchy ilk from penetrating.. (Starting at $19.95) Buy the CleanRest Ultra bedding here.
Mother Nature's Detergent. It might seem a little nutty to throw a sack of dried brown things, sprinkled with essential oils, into your washing machine in lieu of regular detergent. But there’s precedent: Soapnuts have been used for centuries in Asia and India to clean all kinds of fabrics.(Starting at $14.95) Buy the soap nuts organic laundry detergent here.
Not Just Another Pretty Vase. Perfect for gifting and reusing, the Jill-able vase is a nice way to share flowers with a friend without adding to their clutter. It’s a particularly thoughtful choice for small apartments, kid-busy homes, classrooms, or hospital rooms. Keep a few for yourself, too, to showcase special cuttings from your own garden. ($19.950) Buy Jill-able's portable and collapsible flower vase here.
No More Fanny Packs. You’re off for a hike or a run, but where to put your keys, phone and energy bar? Forget the bulky waist bag and give this sleek little storage belt a try instead. ($19.99) Buy SPIbelt running belts here.
