everyday objects: dish brush

ikea dish brush

i hate doing dishes and i don't have a dishwasher. i have purchased every dish-washing tool at bed bath & beyond in a quest to make dishwashing more enjoyable. nothing. not even the eighteen dollar oxo dishwashing brush with the dishsoap repository built-in makes doing dishes any easier. then, i bought a 99 cent brush at ikea.

the best of zappos.com™

i spend a ridiculous amount of time cruising zappos.com™ looking at shoes. i figured, since i spend so much time weeding through their thousands of women's shoes on a regular basis, I should share my weekly top picks here.

superior sonicare the well designed toothbrush

sonicare toothbrush

my sonicare toothbrush has quickly become my favorite everyday object. my old toothbrush was invisible to me.. i never really noticed it even though i used it multiple times each day. this toothbrush is design genius. i went out of town for a few days and brought a regular toothbrush because i didn't want to carry the charger.. that was a huge mistake. i didn't appreciate the amazing features until i recognized their absence.
