This double sink vanity features a white marble countertop and thin tile backsplash strip. A large mirror with mounted sconce reflects the light in the room keeping the space open and airy. A Buddha statue and wood platform soap dish are the perfect finishing touches for the Asian design.
A storage solution for streamlined bathrooms, the Alchemi series from Dezi Home includes a simple, multi-functional wall-mounted rail that works as a towel holder or shelving system depending on how you install it. Horizontally it works as an organizer for a soap dish, soap dispenser and toothbrush holder, vertically it can be used to hold rolled towels.
The green paisley wallpaper in this bathroom sets the color scheme for the room. Two small lamp fixtures surround the oval mirror topped with green cloth, plaid lamp shapes to shed light on the glass tile stripe, mirror boxes and green towels sitting on the white tile sink below.
HGTV's Brother Vs. Brother Team Jonathan decorated this tranquil transitional bathroom. The space features his-and-hers white vanities with mounted mirrors, light lavender walls, and gray tile flooring.
Stash dishwashing supplies out of sight. This narrow pull-out provides sink-adjacent storage for dish soap, scrub brushes and hand towels. Plus, a towel rack allows the dish towel to dry after use. Photo courtesy of Dura Supreme Cabinetry
No luxury feature is spared in this incredible custom kitchen, right down to drawer and cabinet compartments lined with leather. Spot the carved lion's head above the custom mural, which depicts the homeowner's own house among vineyards. Rich oak cabinetry built in France covers side-by-side Sub-Zero refrigerators, four freezer drawers, and two dishwashers beside the apron sink. Flanking the mural are two pilasters where the homeowner hangs her kitchen towels and hides her dish soap. In the island is a second sink, a Kohler Pro Cook, which doubles as a pasta cooker. For the grand-kids, a flat-screen TV pulls down from above the cabinets.
Eliminate weeds with a DIY blend of ½ gallon apple cider vinegar, ¼ cup salt and 1 teaspoon dish soap. This type of weed killer doesn’t kill plant roots—just any leaf it touches. Apply to young seedlings for best killing results. Use care not to let spray drift onto plants you want, because this brew kills plants indiscriminately.
Japanese beetles invade gardens and planting beds in early summer, feasting on choice crops like roses, marigolds, raspberries and a host of other plants.
Easy Solution: When you spy Japanese beetles, create a soapy solution (dish soap works well) in a container. Hold the container beneath the beetles and gently knock them into the suds. They’ll quickly drown.
