I saw this at a local store and was very impressed by the idea. Mood-setting romantic light, and an emergency flashlight in one. I bet somewhere in the instructions it says, “Put the candle out before using the flashlight.”

A novel and proven way to eliminate persistent food smells from your fingers. “Wash” your hands with this stainless-steel soap for 30 seconds and the aroma of onion and garlic will be gone. A black plastic soap dish is included.


Nice but I think everyone has at least ONE piece of stainless steel whatever in their kitchen to rub their hands on.
