Shoe Odor Eliminators

One Stank Stix

Not even your favorite pair of boots is immune to accumulating some odor, but these Stankstix by Glovestix (of Sharktank fame) are a stink-fighting solution. Two long plastic sticks fit easily into bags and shoes of any size (even knee-high boots), and their silver seal technology doesn't just mask the smell, but blocks the growth of odor-causing bacteria to eliminate it completely. Seriously, your shoes won't smell like anything at all. It comes with antimicrobial plastic that lasts up to ten years and replaceable, all-natural, moisture-absorbing and deodorizing insert bags—so your shoes will stay fresh for as long as they last.

Camouflaged Nightlights

Light your way or add beautiful accent lighting with our GuideLight 2. Activated by a light sensor, it automatically turns ON when you need it and OFF when you don't! Please Note: Decor style products are designed to work with all standard decor outlets. They are currently not compatible with GFCI (test and reset) outlets.

While some night-lights are cute, others are clunky or just downright unsightly. For soft lighting with a source that's basically invisible, these Guidelights from SnapPower are perfect. Camouflaged to look like any other flush-to-the-wall outlet cover, Guidelights feature a collection of small LED lights hidden in the bottom that cast a sleek, downward glow. They're also motion activated, so ideal for midnight trips to the bathroom, movie nights, kids' rooms, and more. The best part? You can still use both outlets.
