    1. This brilliant upgrade to your normal dust pan and brush.

    Quirky / Via

    Promising review: "I don't know why more dust pans aren't made this way. I bought it for the "comb" feature, to help remove the hair from your broom, but this dust pan also has another wonderful feature which would be helpful on almost all dust pans. The handle on this one is shaped so that it flares out onto the floor and you can step your foot on to it in order to hold it while you sweep and scrape the hair off your broom. It is absolutely fantastic. It also, if you need a third distinction, is angled just enough to keep the entry edge nicely on the floor so that your debris sweeps onto the pan and not under it. DO buy this." – Karen

I am so pleased I purchased this item." – Wendy Baker

    Full Circle / Via

    Promising Review: "I was looking for something to sweep crumbs off the kitchen counter or table and came across this mini dustpan. It is ideal to sweep up small messes. I like the fact that it isn't too ugly, therefore I don't feel the need to hide it from view and actually end up using more often. The small size of the dustpan/brush was exactly what I was needed, but if you are looking for something to sweep the floor too, go for something bigger - unless you have a lot of spare time." – Corsaro71

    16. A warming rail for your towels.

    VonHaus / Via

    Promising Review: "Although quite small, it heats up quite quickly and does the job! Prefer to keep it free-standing as can easily be moved, but comes with wall fixtures.

The canvas and the ropes seem sturdy enough to hold feet for many months and years to come and I like that this is adjustable. It fits my desk well and maintains its position without moving." – A Boy
