  With 11 different categories spanning indoors, outdoors, and a myriad of cooking and cleaning tools, The Sweethome reviews everything you could need in your home and with updates to alert you when they go on sale, or where to find the least expensive version. Although it just launched and will take awhile to be a compendium of product reviews, and we would like to see more sustainable options, it is always good to know about the best towels, best dishwasher, or even the best ice cream scoop.  We share some of their favorites here:

  The Best Bath Towel Breaking it down between performance (science-related data on cotton molecules versus bamboo fabrics) and experience (how the towel feels on your bod). The Sweethome recommends 1888 Mills’ Luxury Cotton Made in Africa bath towels.

  The Best Watering Can Although they admit that a watering can is a luxury (any old pitcher will do the trick) having a good watering can does make the chore easier. They recommend the Haw Bosmere V115 5-liter because it “produces a gentle rain the spindliest seedlings could love.”
