Getting ready to spring clean?

Spring CleaningTime to open up the windows that have been shut all winter and give the house a good cleaning! Here are some products that will get you started.

Scrub
Peachy Clean Silicone Scrubbers are uniquely designed to resist most odors caused by bacteria, mold and mildew. Made in the USA, these soft silicone dish scrubbers will replace sponges and other kitchen rags with technology that promotes antimicrobial odor protection, and they even smell like peaches. $6.99 each, three for $18.99; GetPeachyClean.com.

Spring CleaningSave water
Spring is a good time to check over appliances and fixtures, too. Looking to replace your shower head? Eva Smart Shower utilizes a smartphone app and Bluetooth technology as well as sensors that monitor time in the shower, water temperature and water flow. It helps decrease water usage by 50 percent. For instance, if you turn on the shower and are still busy in the bathroom when your ideal temperature is reached, Eva shuts the water flow off until you actually get in the shower. If you step away from the shower head to shampoo your hair, the sensors will detect that and the shower flow will ease, while still keeping you nice and warm. When you are directly underneath the shower head again, wetting your hair or rinsing off soap, Eva sets your water flow to 100 percent. Eva is still launching and can be pre-ordered at evasmartshower.com.
