Kidde Carbon Monoxide Detector 

Our Favorite Products & Resources

I became a passionate advocate for carbon monoxide awareness after my husband Frank nearly lost his life to carbon monoxide poisoning in 2017. We use CO alarms in each of our bedrooms and next to all gas-burning appliances (oven, clothes dryer, fireplace and hot water heater). When traveling, we put them in our hotel rooms and in the sleeping areas of family and friend’s homes we stay at. Protect yourself and your loved ones against a silent killer with CO detectors for both home and travel. #bettersafethansorry

Moisture Absorbing Bags

For hot and humid coastal living, these rechargeable moisture-absorbing bags help to keep your closet and drawer items free of must & mold. Designed by a 20-year disaster responder who has seen the damage that mold can do to people’s belongings, these high-quality desiccant packs will help protect your belongings. Trust me, you will need them.

Drain Covers

To prevent sewer smells and insects (think flying cockroaches) from coming up through the drains get yourself some of these little handy drain covers.

Laundry Detergent Sheets

If you are staying at a place that does not have laundry facilities, you will need to find a laundromat. Self-service ones are not the norm, and if you don’t want your clothes smelling super perfumated, bring your own laundry detergent with you when you drop off your clothes and ask them to use it with your loads. This product is compact, light, easy to travel with and far more eco-friendly than the liquid detergent in plastic bottles. 

Mosquito Netting

Want to enjoy a peaceful night’s rest without buzzing in your ear or bothersome bites that keep you awake itching! These must-have mosquito/scorpion nets keep those little buggers OUT! 


Reusable Mesh Produce Bags

Eco-friendly, biodegradable, set of 10. Thank you for lessening our plastic impact on our Mother Earth.
