Don't be the one scrubbing the grill long after the barbecue is over. This tool lets your still-hot grill (and the power of steam) do all the work. Just attach the heat-resistant cloth to the handle, dip in the water tray and run over your grimy grates. There's a scraper for stubborn buildup, and the cloth can be washed and reused up to 15 times.

We love our pups, but sometimes they can make a mess. This travel water bottle will be the first thing you grab before you take Buster out for a walk. It clips onto leashes and bags for easy transport and helps cut back on water waste. After your pooch drinks from the attached bowl, just give the bottle a quick squeeze to drain the excess water back into the bottle. Your pet will be hydrated and you won't have to worry about any mess; it's a win-win!
