If you’re breaking out your white sneakers again for fall, they might need some sprucing up. The brand says this kit can clean shoes of all kinds and fabrics and that one bottle can clean up to 100 pairs of sneakers.

If you frequent the dry cleaners, you know that those trips can add up. This kit is a fix that can not only help save you some time and money, but can help keep your nicer items in the clean condition that you want them in. According to the brand, all you have to do is spot treat your items with the pen, place them into the bag along with a special cleaning cloth and then let them tumble dry on medium for 15-20 minutes so the steam can get to work. Then, you take them out and head out the door.
While you may already have a spoon rest sitting in your kitchen, Brach says this isn’t your average utensil rest. It can hold up to four utensils at once, is dishwasher safe and is large enough to catch drips and spills that most spoon rests can’t. It also comes in a range of colors, so you can choose one that best complements your kitchen.
