For the Lazy: Easy Sort Laundry Bags

Easy Sort Laundry Bags

Doing laundry is a multi-step process, and it begins with sorting all of your dirty clothes into different piles: one for whites, one for light clothes, one for dark, one for delicates, and another one or two for everything else that doesn’t fit into these categories. Or you could just skip the piles and sort your stuff as you take ‘em off by getting a set of these Easy Sort Laundry Bags.

You get three bags: a khaki one for your whites, a navy one for dark stuff, and a gray one labeled “mom” for everything else– aka it’s the bag that will most likely go to the laundromat because you can’t figure out how to wash them.

The Easy Sort Laundry Bags are currently on sale for $29.

Candle-Powered Heater Is Efficient Enough To Heat A Small Room

egloo

You don’t typically think of candles as effective heat sources, at least not to heat up an entire room. However, the Egloo terracotta heater claims to do just that. By using four small candles and two nested clay domes, it is able to generate enough heat to warm up an office sized room for up to 5 hours at a time. After that, just get a new set of candles. These are super cheap, going for as little as $4 for 100 at IKEA.

The nested dome design, as well as the use of clay ensures that as much of the heat generated by the candles is distributed back to the room at a rate that allows for comfortable enjoyment. It won’t warm your entire home up, but if you’ve got one chilly room you find yourself in often, you might want to consider this innovative alternative. It’s a $60 pledge on their well-funded Indiegogo, and comes in various finishes.

Your Soft Tortillas Can Now Grow Up To Be Hard Tacos

Screen Shot 2015-01-20 at 3.04.00 PM

Sometimes you’re in the mood of a nice soft wrap, while other times you miss the crunch of a taco. You could buy both soft tortillas and hard tacos and get your fix whenever you want. Or you could get this Taco Shell Toaster. It’ll accept corn or flour tortillas and shape them into the perfect taco shape thanks to its taco-forming cage. It makes two at once, and the 750W element should have them toasted in no time. Better yet, this toaster is just $30.

SkyBell Doorbell: See Who’s At the Door Without Even Getting Up

SkyBell Doorbell

Sometimes, the doorbell rings at the worst moments– when you’re still in bed, in the shower, playing a video game, or watching a particularly interesting football match. It gets easier when you have Skybell, though. It’s a doorbell that functions as a virtual sentry of sorts by letting you see who’s at the door without even having to get up and open it.

Skybell hooks up to your WiFi connection so you can see who’s at the door by checking your phone. You’ll also be able to communicate with visitors through Skybell (and turn away salesmen) in the comforts of wherever you currently are when the bell rang. What’s more, you’ll get an alert on your mobile if it senses someone loitering by your door, even when they haven’t pressed the button.

It’s available online for $199.

It’s Out of This World: Millennium Falcon Area Rug

Millennium Falcon Area Rug

Regardless of how small your den may be, you can now fit a space ship in it–that is, if you have at least 33 square feet of vacant space. It’s not an actual space ship, of course, but this rug with the Millennium Falcon printed on it. The level of detail is pretty impressive, and the entire rug is cut out in the shape of the Falcon. If you’ve got some time on your hands, you can break out your tools and even turn it into a tapestry.

The rug is made from 100% polyester pile and is officially licensed.

Bad-Ass Illumination: Breaking Bad LookaLite

Breaking-Bad-LookaLite

Breaking Bad may have ended a couple of years ago, but the memory of it– and people’s love for the show–is still very much alive. One of Walter White’s signature looks, if you could call it that, was when he was dressed in his yellow Hazmat suit and gas mask. So it’s pretty appropriate that they chose to dress this lamp in that, and more than apt that they decided to call it a Lookalite.

It’s basically a lamp that looks like a miniature and chubbier version of Walter. In short, it’s a lookalike that happens to be a lamp, too. Clever, clever. The Breaking Bad Lookalite is available online for £19.99 (about $31.)

Sit On Yesterday’s News: Hockenheimer Magazine Stool

Hockenheimer Magazine Stool

 

A piece of art or furniture? The Hockenheimer Magazine Stool is neither one, because it’s actually a combination of both. It’s basically a DIY kit that for you to make your own stool. It comes with a four-legged waxed birch stool base and two leather belts, plus a cushion so your tush is comfy when you take a seat on it. What sets it apart is because of what goes in between the cushion and the base of the stool: stacks of your old magazines and newspapers that you otherwise have no other use for.

It’s available online for about $160+.
