    Leave them in the sun for an hour every month to recharge them!

    "I tried them first on my favourite black boots that I wear daily. They had started to smell a little musty, and the odour was beginning to transfer onto my socks. Overnight, the smell had completely disappeared, leaving only a leather scent behind. To say I was shook is an understatement. The product description says the bags are reusable for up to two years; you simply air them out in the sun to rejuvenate 'em once in a while. I’ve been using the same pair now for six months, and they’re still highly effective." —Yi Yang (read their whole review of the bamboo shoe deodorizers).

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $11.95. Also available in a pack of four.

    15. A stainless steel pour-over coffee filter that doesn't require any paper liners to do its job. The double-layer mesh design is ultra-fine, so no pesky grounds will sneak through.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "I love the variety of colours in this set, and they're a bit longer and wider than the metal ones I have, so I can use them in any cup or bottle to drink water, juice, smoothies—literally anything. I also love that they're soft and flexible. I can easily fold them into my water bottle or even tie them around the handle! I can stick them in the dishwasher to clean them, but they come with a little cleaning brush if I want to wash them by hand. They also come with a little drawstring bag, making it easy to travel with. And I can bend them into a smaller size if I'm using a smaller bag, without worrying about them warping or losing their shape." —Kaysey Davis (read their full review of the silicone straws; it's #13)
