Solutions from Holster® Brands

New to Cole Hardware, ingenious Holster Brands products are silicone storage pockets for household items that you like to have within reach. Using them could not be easier—the patented design allows the holster to cling to any smooth surface by eliminating the air between the two surfaces and creating a temporary bond. They are easy to clean and move, so they can be used time after time for all of your cleaning, workshop, crafting, organizing, and even hairstyling needs! Holster Brands items are resistant to high heat so that curling irons or glue guns can safely be held in place. Once the bond is formed onto a dry surface, holsters can safely be sprayed with waWhat-and-Where-TUBter when used in the sink or on a shower wall. Items pictured range from $11.99–$19.99.

compokeepercompokeeper-imageHopefully, most Hardware Hotline readers whose home has either a curbside compost program or a bit of garden space are taking advantage of the opportunity to compost. Composting lessens our collective environmental footprint by taking green waste that would otherwise end up causing pollution in landflls and channeling it directly into a more valuable material. However, sometimes the realities of keeping a compost receptacle in the home kitchen are less than desirable. As the food waste breaks down, it can cause odors and attract fruit fies—not very pleasant additions to the room where we spend our time cooking and eating! The CompoKeeper is a new product that we are loving at Cole Hardware, as it has solved many frequent complaints we hear about the unpleasant sides of composting kitchen scraps. What sets the CompoKeeper apart from traditional compost receptacles we’ve tried? • Two foot pedals make for a hands-free, cleaner composting experience.• Its patented bag-sealing technology lock smells in and keep bugs away.• A generous 6-gallon capacity allows for more storage room and fewer trips outside.• A sleek design makes it an attractive addition to the kitchen.• It can easily be set up for under-the-counter or free-standing use in the kitchen. The CompoKeeper is available at Cole Hardware in green or black. Pick one up today and revolutionize your home composting experience! (Sku 740000–1, $69.99)

Chain Mail Scrubber

chainmailscruber-1 chainmailscruber-2Lately, nonstick coated pots and pans have gotten a bad rap in the news, and many home cooks have reverted to using cast-iron cookware—same as what Grandma used! Check out this nifty new chain mail scrubber that we found for use with all of your cast iron, stainless steel, hard anodized aluminum, and enameled cast-iron cook-ware, woks, and casseroles.  We fnd this to be one of the world’s best pots and pans scrubber. Cleaning cast-iron cookware with the scrubber is safe, fast, and easy, and well-seasoned cast-iron pans will stay seasoned. Each ring is handmade from 316 grade stainless steel—the highest grade of stainless steel and often used for professional food service applications and surgical instruments.Run your pan under warm water and scrub. Cooked-on residue will release quickly and easily with the scrubber, and there is no need to use detergents. The best time to clean cast-iron pans is shortly after cooking, when they are just warm to the touch. The scrubber itself cleans up quickly in hot, soapy water or in the dishwasher. Nasty burned-on food can destroy a regular sponge, even with a scouring pad, in just one use. So what’s better than a lifetime guarantee? We will replace your chain mail scrubber  at any time for any reason. Never buy another pot scrubber! (Sku 116013, $19.99)

Goodwill E-Waste and Donation Drop-Off

computers956 Cole Street
Saturday, April 18
10:00 am-2:00 pm

Our Cole Street location will sponsor a donation drop-off day on Saturday, April 18, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm with our friends at Goodwill. Besides consumer electronics (working or not), we will accept clothing and accessories, home accessories, kitchenware and small appliances, and bicycles. (Sorry, but we cannot accept large appliances, sofas, mattresses, snow skis, auto parts, or furniture.) Goodwill will take almost anything in good, clean, working condition. As a guideline, if you would give it to a friend or hand it down to a relative, it is perfect for Goodwill. This is a great opportunity to recycle outdated phones, computers, stereos, and televisions properly to keep them out of the landfill. Although we accept small household appliances and small electronics at our stores on a daily basis, this is a great opportunity to bring in any larger electronics, such as televisions.
