The SimpleHuman shampoo and soap
dispensers are designed to hold bath liquids securely and neatly on the wall. The
dispensers have a transparent soap chamber and elegant chrome body. Unlike commercial soap dispensers, which require
one hand to release soap and the other to
catch it, these dispensers offer one-handed
use. The dispensers are easy to install without the need for hardware or tools. A
wide, twist-off lid makes them easy to fill.
Made from rust-free, high grade stainless
steel and durable ABS plastic.
The Green Garmento is an eco-friendly 3in-1 reusable garment bag that will help
consumers “green” their dry-cleaning routine. At home it functions as a space-saving hamper; on the trip to the drycleaner,
it becomes a stylish duffel bag; and at
pick-up, it transforms into a hanging garment bag to protect cleaned clothes. It’s
made from recyclable non-woven
polypropylene that is breathable and
water-resistant. A side zipper allows easy
access to hanging garments and there is a
drawstring closure at bottom. A sturdy
loop fits over any hook for use as a hanging hamper. Reinforced handles for compressed carrying. It’s machine washable.
STARFRIT introduces the Rotato Express
potato peeler. Plop it on, peel it and pare
it in 10 seconds flat. The Rotato Express
peels potatoes, fruits and vegetables instantly at the push of a button. A non-slip
base holds it securely to the work surface
making it safe and easy to use. It stops automatically when the peeling is over and
will also operate cordlessly with batteries.
Available from Atlantic Promotions.
According to Statistics Canada, three in ten
Canadian households consumed bottled

premium stainless steel and are 100% BPAfree. They’re designed to keep beverages
refreshingly cold for 12 hours with TherMax insulation walls. A rotating intake
meter monitors daily consumption.

steel and coated with a stick-resistant resin
coating, the 4-inch blade comes with a
matching sheath that makes it safe to take
