Kanberra® Tea Tree Home Products

Kanberra Wipes

Got Mold? Mildew? Odors? Stop the stink with Kanberra, a line of all-natural air purifiers made from pure Australian tea tree oils certified by the Australian Tea Tree Industry Association. Kanberra was first to create a water-based, chemical- and alcohol-free air purifier using these oils. Additionally, Kanberra can trace its oils from seed to sale— which means its products are safe to breathe!

Kanberra GelThe star of the Kanberra product family is the Kanberra Gel®, available in a wide variety of sizes for hundreds of different applications. As the water evaporates from the container, the tea tree oils enter your air and latch on to mold, mildew, fungus, bacteria, and more. And because there are no chemicals, you never have to worry about Kanberra products in the air you breathe. (2-Ounce Gel: Sku 106008, $19.99; 4-Ounce Gel: Sku 106009, $31.99)

Kanberra’s other products, Kanberra Spray® (Sku 106010, $8.99) and Kanberra Wipes® (Sku 106011, $8.99), do double duty! Kanberra WipesThey both clean your air and surfaces.

Kanberra SprayKanberra products can be used in numerous life spaces. Keep Kanberra in your car—whether it’s your everyday car or a classic car you keep in storage, Kanberra keeps it fresh and odor-free! Use it around your pets—did you know that insects dislike tea tree oil? Spray a few squirts of Kanberra Spray on your dog to help prevent fleas and ticks and keep the mosquitos from biting.

Kanberra Spray is also a great remedy for the “wet dog” smell that all dog owners are familiar with! In your home, keep a jar of Gel in your garbage can, diaper pail, next to a kitty litter box or dog kennel. In your RV or boat, use the Gel to prevent mold, repel critters (like mice!), and keep your space fresh all season long.

So, when you need a product that truly does it all—removes odors, repels insects, prevents mold and mildew— make sure you “look for the koala” with Kanberra!

LivingPlug INLET + Faceplate

Eco-Designed Home or Office Charging Station

Can you believe it’s been over 100 years since the electrical outlet was invented? San Francisco–based LivingPlug is innovating the way we plug into our outlets by creating an eco-designed charging station that can deliver more plugs and a pop of color to any outlet in your house. The INLET has a high-capacity USB charger, three child-safe outlets, and a master kill switch. The interchangeable faceplate system will conceal an outlet, highlight a room’s décor, or make a statement. LivingPlug offers a wide selection of licensed images, the ability to upload a personalized photo, a solid walnut, and a blank faceplate that can be painted or wrapped with wallpaper. For the first time in history, you can put art on an outlet—or a picture of baby’s first smile. (Blank: Sku 324023, $29.99; Walnut: Sku 324024, $39.99)

Light Up the Night

lightupI have to admit I was skeptical. The folks behind Sparkle Magic called me about carrying their product in our stores. I listened. I looked at the brochure they e-mailed to me, and I said, “No, not interested.” I just didn’t think there would be any demand. Refusing to take no for an answer, they wanted to send one to me to try. I discouraged them because I felt guilty taking a sample when I had no intention of carrying the product. They insisted. “Okay,” I said, “I’ll take it home and check it out.” The Sparkle Magic Illuminator is a portable high-tech laser that casts a dazzling array of lights wherever you aim it  —on your home, landscaping, or any surface you like. I plugged it in, aimed it at a huge birch tree, and was instantly mesmerized. Thousasparklemagicnds of green lights shimmered along with the rustling leaves! I then moved it and lit up my house. An amazing transformation! Then I turned the dial as instructed. The random lights turned into thousands of star bursts—really remarkable and beautiful. Seeing is believing. Check out www, and you’ll totally get it.Sparkle Magic comes in red, green, or blue. You can select just one color, or you can mix and match for an even cooler effect. (Skus 999218, 19, 20, $149.99)
