Plasmacluster Gets Rid of the Stink in Your Closet with Ion Power
I use an old trick my eldest sister taught me to keep the clothes in my closet smelling fresh: open a box of soap and just leave it at the bottom of your closet. When you open your cabinet the next day, you’ll be hit with the scent that isn’t overpowering or too weak, but just right.

Pray That the Mantis Chair Doesn’t Prey on You

Pray That the Mantis Chair Doesn’t Prey on You
It’s no secret that I have this insane and inane fear of insects. Cockroaches, grasshoppers, crickets, preying mantis, you name it, and I’ll scream when I see it. This is all to the annoyance of my dad, who just swats at it or sweeps it out of the way when he sees one.

Medisana TargetScale Looks Like a Science Fiction Movie Prop
Everyone who’s trying to lose weight or to stay fit knows that a good scale is an important part of keeping on track.
