A Lovely Loaf Of Coasters

My mother always taught me that it’s good manners to put a coaster under your drink so as not to destroy furniture. So, yes, I grew up to be a coaster freak. I have them in all shapes in sizes, in every room, whether they are necessary or not. Nobody wants to risk getting a coffee ring on their favorite table. Feel confident setting down hot or cold drinks on this loaf of toast coasters. The best thing since sliced bread — not only will they protect your furniture, but they will also never get stale.

11 Places You Forget To Clean … But Should

When it comes to cleaning, most people know to hit the common areas: toilets, sinks, floors, etc. But just because something appears spotless doesn’t mean it’s not a breeding ground for bacteria and other germs. While most bacteria are harmless, germs and dusts particles can make us more susceptible to colds and allergies.

Many of these germ-ridden places get infected through constant touch, so don’t forget to wash your hands as much as possible!

Dam Those Tea Bags!

I just recently discovered the joys of tea, and oh how I love sipping English Breakfast in the morning and a soothing vanilla blend at night. What I don’t love? Taking out the soggy tea bag and leaving drips everywhere. That’s why I’m so excited about this ingenious — and cute! — tea dam cup, which has a separate little section for the tea bag. It also allows you to refill your cup to get multiple uses out of bags of strong tea. So long, wet counters and tea-stained clothes! [$10.25, Whole Latte Love]
