The green tech nonsense made me hesitate, too, but it worked. I did the first wash with the recommended 1-hour rest in the middle (so the clothing can soak), and it took the funk out of clothing that had been horrifying for much too long. At $20 for a decent sized tub, it's a competitive price with the other products out there.

I've switched most of my hiking clothing to merino, and yes, it's amazing. I can't quite justify switching all my running/gym stuff to it, though.

Anyone looking for a food scale could do a lot worse than the Oxo analog. Super easy to calibrate, readouts in both standard and metric up to a pound, the bowl reverses into a cover so you can keep it clean and take it with you if that's your jam. For $13 it's a pretty solid value. The digital one I paid $23 for at IKEA kinda sucks in comparison.

That's fine if you're not concerned about precision. Also, I don't trust spring scales over a year old. It's entirely possible they work better now than in the past, but they use to be shit after a few years.

Got a Roku. It's pretty kick-ass. Amazon and Google on one device as well as the rest.

We have been very happy with the 3 Rokus we have. The new Premier+ we have for the 4k HDR TV works well also.
