More water, please
As I mentioned in my Hot Home Products column this week, I am loving the glass water bottles sent to me by Raquel Youtzy. Since there was no room in the paper for a pic, I've included one above. I also came across a couple of other new water products too late to get them into the column. One is clever new counter-top water cooler/filter from PC Home. While I normally drink water straight from the tap, I’d be inclined to try this one at my cottage. There, we fill up jugs of drinking water from a municipal tap in town. The water is perfectly safe, but it does have a slightly tinny taste, and I’m loathe to buy bottled water. So this well-designed new cooler might be just the solution. It would also be great in an office setting, I think. PC Home also has a reusable personal water bottle that comes with a built in filter for about $10. And here’s another cool new product — the Vapur Anti-Bottle, a flexible bottle that, when empty, can be rolled, folded or flattened to fit into a purse or pocket (see pic below). It’s made from polymer and contains no BPA (Bisphenol A),and can be placed in the freezer, microwave, or dishwasher.
