Our Favorite Plates, Bowls, Cups, and Carafes for Eating (and Drinking) Outdoors

For many people, summer means eating outside. It’s the time to dig shatterproof cups and dishes out of storage and put them to use, whether at a beach picnic or a poolside barbecue.

How Often You Should Wash Your Sheets (And How to Get Them Really Clean)

You should probably change your bedsheets once a week. Think about it: You spend hours in bed every night, and your sheets collect skin flakes and an assortment of bodily fluids and oils. Then there’s stuff like dust, dust mites, and (if you have a cat or dog) pet hair.Washing your sheets regularly rids them of that gross gunk. But just as important...

The Best Tabletop Radio

After seven days of fiddling with knobs, adjusting antennas, and listening to endless AM and FM broadcasts using six top-rated radios, we think the best tabletop radio for most people is the Sangean WR-11. It has the simple controls, inviting sound, and accurate tuning you need from a tabletop radio wrapped in a wooden cabinet that’s as well-built as...

5 Cheap(ish) Things to Keep Your Bedroom Cool

The first summer I lived in New York City was a sweltering reality check. Coming from the Northwest, I had never had an air conditioner, and I didn’t think I could afford one (or the higher electric bills). I spent that first summer tossing and turning in the muggy heat. By the following summer, I had wised up and invested in an A.C., but even then...

How a Burner Browser Hides My Most Embarrassing Internet Searches

Some inane things I recently searched for from my phone: “how tall is Robert Pattinson,” “Bob Dylan with mustache,” and “Rogue Legacy 2 double jump.” All things that are mildly embarrassing, only momentarily useful, and certainly not a fair representation of who I am as a person. This is one of the reasons I tend to use a “burner browser,” one that...

You Don’t Need Anything Special to See the Total Lunar Eclipse. (But These Things Won’t Hurt!)

That’s truly special.The upcoming total lunar eclipse (which starts late on Sunday, May 15, and continues into the early hours of May 16) will offer amateur astronomers the chance to watch the effects as the sun, Earth, and moon align for...

How to Clean Stuffed Animals and Dolls (Trust Us, They’re Gross)

Watching an adorable kid lovingly curl up with their favorite stuffed animal can be achingly cute … until you think about where that stuffie has been. The sandbox, the car trunk, the dog’s mouth—oh, my! And then, ugh, what’s been on that stuffie (I have observed a kid burying boogers into the fur of their favorite stuffed lion).Dismiss

Skip the Spotify Car Thing. Get a Car Phone Mount Instead.

I love jamming to electronic lo-fi and the latest Harry Styles tracks as I drive down the California coast in my Jeep Cherokee. But my car is old—from 1998, nearly as old as I am—and it’s no real surprise it has an antiquated sound system. (It has an add-on CD player, for goodness’ sake.) That means pulling up music on my phone while I’m on the road...
