4. Nothing feels more luxurious than stepping onto a soft, fluffy bath mat after a relaxing shower. These machine washable, microfiber mats won’t slip and come in over a dozen colors to perfectly match your bathroom.

“I replaced the old rug with this one and didn’t expect much fanfare from the family. The kids commented how soft it is. The hubby wants to know if we can carpet the entire house in whatever it’s made from. And the cat sleeps in the bathroom on the rug now. It’s incredibly soft, and it absorbs water quickly and dries quickly. I love the colors.”

We found Safer Home and gave it a shot! It has worked so fast for us, we noticed so many fruit flies and flies and mosquitos within only a few days. We haven’t noticed them around our food. The light works so well and the adhesive backing is very sticky. It’s easy to use and we highly recommend.”

Very happy with this purchase!”

Glowing Review: Miriam B. 

“I have been wanting a steamer for a long time, but… I don’t know why I didn’t get one sooner. I love this thing! I hate to iron so any alternative is a gift of the gods in my opinion. 

It is very easy to use. I think I will be buying globes to protect my hands when using it, but I was able to use it perfectly well without getting burned. I steamed a linen dress that is a pain to iron with excellent results. I’m keeping my iron because I do sew once in a while and for that I will need to use it, otherwise I would be donating it. I have not taken the steamer on a trip yet, but I will take it with me next time I travel.”

(This tumbler is) better than a Stanley. I have bought SOOOO many cups. I’m constantly on the go as a travel nurse, always need to bring a cup along with me to stay hydrated. I’ve tried all the brands… yeti, trek, Stanley, Bubba, hydraflow, reduce, Tervis, and many more. SIMPLE MODERN BEATS ALL THESE OTHER BRANDS, especially the infamous Stanley.
