O'Grady Favorites

Some of our favorite and must-have products for life south of the border…

Kidde Carbon Monoxide Detector 

I am an advocate for carbon monoxide awareness and safety. Protect yourself and your loved ones both at home and while traveling. We use CO alarms in our bedrooms and next to our gas-burning appliances (oven, clothes dryer, and hot water heater). For travel, we set them out in our hotel room and even in the bedrooms of family and friend’s homes we stay at. Better safe than sorry.Favorites

Headhunter Sunscreen

We fair-skinned O’Gradys burn in the shade! Headhunter is our favorite sunscreen and never fails to protect us! *Free shipping on orders over $20 USD!*








Moisture Absorber Bags

I remember our first year in the jungle when our leather shoes grew mold on them….ewww!

Live and learn! We now place these no-scent, eco-friendly little moisture-absorbing bags inside our closets and other closed spaces to keep items free of must & mold.

Drain Covers

If you want to prevent sewer smells and insects from coming up through the drains, get yourself some of these little covers.

Mosquito Netting

We’ve all experienced it…you’re falling asleep and hear a buzz in your ear! Enjoy a peaceful night’s rest with these must-have mosquito nets to keep those little buggers OUT!

Check all electrical outlets with a polarity tester for correct/incorrect wiring to avoid electrical fires!
