Scrub Daisy Dishwand Kit

This product was recommended by Lisa Van Groningen from Your Mom Village

Many households opt for traditional dish wands. Yet those wands need you to replace the washer heads frequently. They harbor bacteria and germs and don’t offer the durability of the Scrub Daisy. The Scrub Daisy offers multiple wand heads to tackle any job. It is dishwasher safe which means you reduce germs and cost. You can reuse it. The multiple wands also can clean many different areas a regular flat dishwand can’t. From cups to bottles and pans of all shapes. The design is convenient because it comes with a unique stand that also offers a smiley face decor. One of the biggest benefits I like is that nothing gets stuck inside the scrubber. So there is no food residue left over to cause growth of bacteria.

Aroma 20-Cup Rice Cooker & Food Steamer

It also doubles up as a food steamer, meaning that you can use it for steaming and/or warming other food items like vegetables.
