We've just had our second child and I can say - we need a handheld vacuum. What I like about the Electrolux is the clean air filtration system and easy-empty dust cup for bagless convenience. I can see all those goldfish crackers being sucked up right now...

If you want to add some style to your dishwashing, perhaps the polka dot ruffle on these rubber latex gloves will do the trick.

We had one of these in the kitchen of my old job, and it was so handy. The work kitchen sink was so gross, touching as little as possible was the goal. Hopefully, your own kitchen sink isn't so disgusting, but this can still be very handy. It dispenses soap with the press of a button, has sturdy nylon bristles, and is dishwasher safe.

This system changes ordinary tap water into a natural, chemical-free cleaner. The system infuses tap water with ozone — a natural sanitizer that is safe and harmless to healthy cells, which can be used to reduce pesticide residue on fruit and vegetables. It also works to neutralize odors and kill germs on countertops and other surfaces.

The good folks at simplehuman sent us the precision soap pump to review. So far I love it. We have been using it to dispense hand soap in our kitchen, and it is much more attractive than the plastic container we were using before. This is no wimpy soap dispenser—it means business. It is incredibly sturdy, so you can easily use it with one hand and it won't tip over.
The dispenser is easy to push and allows you to regulate how much soap you want to come out. While we have been using it for hand soap, it would work just as well for dish soap. The reservoir holds 20 ounces, so you don't have to constantly refill it. It is easy to get a sponge or dish cloth under the dispenser. The soap chamber is clear, so you can see when you are getting low on soap and the back opens up to easily refill. Overall, another solid product from simplehuman.
It comes in a 10 oz and a 20 oz size. It has a rust-proof chrome finish and an acrylic soap chamber.

After making a stinky meal, you need something to remove the odors. This odor-eliminator does not have a fragrance or harsh chemicals to make your kitchen smell like stinky food and perfume. Instead, it electrostatically attracts the molecules that form odors, captures them, and neutralizes them. The cyrstals will last 30-90 days depending on ambient airflow.

It is so hard to get the smell of onions and garlic off your hands. I can wash my hands two or three times and have the smell still linger. This stainless steel egg claims to be the answer. It supposedly removes odors from your hand when you pick it up.

These are supposedly gentler than steel wool and biodegradable!
Safer and less abrasive alternative to steel wool. Use very little or no detergent to scrub dishes, pots & pans, stovetops, grills, broiling pans, ovens, sinks, bathtubs, kitchen or bathroom tile... Lasts a long time and does not break, tear or shed pieces which might otherwise remain on dishes or get into food. Biodegradable; will not rust or hurt your hands like steel wool. Works great on tea or coffee stains in teapots and cups! Use Sandclean to scrub your vegetables (carrots, potatoes, etc.) and retain important minerals.
