Polar Just Released Mini Canned Seltzers, and You’ll Never Believe the Flavors

  Polar Just Released Mini Canned Seltzers, and You’ll Never Believe the Flavors When you think of sparkling water, flavors such as grapefruit or lime likely come to mind. But Polar Seltzer has taken a decidedly different approach with their new “Impossibly Good” line, featuring Mermaid Songs, Dragon Whispers, Yeti Mischief, and Unicorn Kisses as the four flavors. Yup #polarseltzer #impossiblygood A post shared by Ralph Crowley (@ralphiecrowley) on Jul 13, 2017 at 6:27pm PDT When we first received the zero-calorie, sugar-free seltzers, we were totally on board. Each “Seltzer jr”, as they’re referred to on the packaging, is just 8 oz. (a standard can is 12 oz.), which we actually think is the perfect size for anything carbonated. After all, a fizzy drink is never as cold or refreshing by the time you’re halfway through. “The new Polar SeltzerJR assortment is made to chill consumers and leverage the unmet demand for sparkle and happiness,” Polar said in a statement. The cans themselves are just as adorable. Mermaid Songs features illustrations of orange and pink-clad mermaids and swirls of blue water. Dragon Whispers is decked out with a purple dragon breathing orange fire. Adorable Yeti creatures are hiding in a forest scene in Yeti Mischief, and pastel rainbows and white unicorns adorn the Unicorn Kisses can. (Technically, Unicorn Kisses isn’t a new flavor. Polar released it last year for a limited time, and they are bringing it back as part of the new line). But now for the not-so-great news.

Hauling out a bunch of huge plastic tubs of clothes to make the switch from summer to winter—or the other way around—is no fun. Which is why most people put off the whole clothing storage ordeal as long as possible. But switching those unwieldy tubs for smaller containers will make all the difference between effortlessly finding the clothes you own and sifting through a giant wrinkled heap. (Here are more tricks from personal organizers you would normally have to pay for.)

The out-of-date way of storing out-of-season clothing involves stuffing the ones you won’t need for the upcoming season into a few large, plastic storage bins or cardboard boxes. When full, these bulky containers are heavy to move and too large to easily store. Plus, all the styles and sizes of clothes are mixed up in just a few containers. This means when the season changes you have to carry the heavy bin or box back to your bedroom where it’s likely to sit for weeks until you make the time to put away all the clothes. Until then, you’ll find yourself pulling the clothes you want to wear directly out of the bin.

How To Store Wine (It Really Does Matter!)

  How To Store Wine (It Really Does Matter!) Millennial love for wine is a well-documented trend. Some of our obsession is fueled, in part, by the ever-growing variety of inexpensive wines we can buy that don’t sacrifice quality for a deal. But even a $10 bottle needs to be handled right. After all, wine continues to change in the bottle, long after the cork has gone in. For some wines, like bold reds, that’s a good thing. But not all changes that happen in a wine bottle are good. After all, some varieties, like rosé , aren’t meant to age at all. And all wines, be they bubbly, red, white, or some color in between, can actually be ruined if you’re not storing them the right way.

So people may be unwittingly helping to spread them by carrying around luggage full of dirty clothes, the team at Britain's Sheffield University said.© Getty Images stock Bedbugs on a bed sheet They found bedbugs were twice as likely to creep into bags that held clothing that had been worn — usually for just a few hours.
