This top-load washing machine from GE is an all-around laundry room upgrade, not only for its exceptional smart-home functionality, but also its sleek design features.
Control each load of laundry through your smartphone or Google Home Connectivity-enabled device, and monitor the progress remotely. The GE Laundry app provides the amount of time remaining as well, so you no longer have to guess how long each wash will take.
Its SmartDispense Technology also makes it a standout, able to hold up to 75 ounces of laundry detergent, and dispenses the perfect amount each time in accordance to load size. The soft-close glass top is another design bonus that we love, making the jarring sound of accidentally slamming the washing-machine lid shut a thing of the past.

The app even has a brilliant feature that can sense when the drying cycle is done, but the door hasn't been opened, so if you're out running errands, you can put whoever's home on folding duty!

Simple, cheap, and and effective, these customizable organizer strips will help you tame the junk drawer once and for all!
Here's how they work: Each package contains four 2-foot-long plastic strips, and 16 adhesive mounts. Once you figure out how you want to organize your drawer (whether in small cubbies, for corralling beauty products, or longer columns for kitchen utensils), measure the plastic strips to the length that you want, score them with a utility blade, and snap them apart! Place them inside the drawer, and affix them to the sides with the adhesive mounts. They come in 2-inch and 4-inch heights, and they can work in virtually any room of the house!
Even if the forecast doesn't call for rain, getting caught in a passing shower can really put a damper on your day. Many umbrellas add an excessive amount of weight and bulkiness to everyday purses and bags, so more often or not, they'll get left at home to stay nice and dry while you get caught in the weather.
However, this push-button umbrella from London Fog folds to a compact 10 inches long, and at just 9 ounces, it's light enough to become a permanent resident of your work bag.
Keep an eye on your frying, while saving your surroundings from tough-to-clean oil splatters! Unlike using a mesh splatter guard or pot lid, the food-safe silicone Frywall gives you full access to your sauté station, while letting steam escape freely. Users love how this simple tool also saves them a ton of kitchen cleanup after each meal.
The key first steps to a greener home is to make small product substitutions that feel more sustainable than a lifestyle overhaul. The Unpaper Kitchen Cloths from Dot & Army are a great example of this — instead of using a wad of disposable paper towels to sop up spills and clean food-prep areas, this color-coded set of 18 cotton cloths can fill in for the job way more effectively!
They're textured to have the same grippy feel as paper towels do, but these are much more durable and absorbent, and they can be thrown right into the wash after use! You don't need to be precious about them like you would your favorite dish cloth or tea towel, as these were made specifically for getting down and dirty.
It's a shocking but true stat — according to the CDC, only 1 in 10 American adults is actually getting enough fruits and vegetables in their diet. In order to keep your energy up and your immune system in peak condition, it's vital that you get your 2 to 3 daily cups of greens, no matter what form they come in.
Thankfully, 8Greens offers a brilliant supplemental shortcut in a tiny little tablet.These nutrient-dense, effervescent tablets are packed with dehydrated spinach, wheatgrass, kale, spirulina, and other greens, and they're meant to be dropped into 8 ounces of water and sipped anytime, anywhere.
They're high in vitamins and minerals — and free of any preservatives, gluten, dairy, or sugar — and users love the mild, citrusy flavor and how convenient it is to get their daily dosage of produce without having to sit down for a meal.
An external battery pack is an indispensable part of the on-the-go toolkit — once you leave the house for the day, you don't want to leave anything to chance. There are tons to choose from, but the Anker PowerCore 13000 is our favorite model for charging your phone. Its small size and high-speed charging capacity are just right for anyone's needs.
The battery has two USB ports, and it stores enough juice to recharge most smartphones up to five times. This is great news if you're traveling with someone else whose phone is also in the red!
