There hasn’t been a lot of innovation in the world of paper towel holders aside from a few sleek designs. Until now. The latest launch from Simplehuman, the Container Store–favorite brand best known for its streamlined trash cans, has given us the kitchen upgrade we didn’t know we needed: the Paper Towel Pump. In place of your standard wood or metal dowel in the middle, this game changer features a detachable pump in the center that you can fill with cleaner, that way you can tackle messes right after they happen.
With a starting price of $80, the double-duty product is pricey compared to its more basic counterparts, but as the first of its kind, it may pay for itself by making life a little easier and more eco-friendly. The 6-ounce sprayer is refillable (the company is also selling multisurface cleaning tablets in three scents to go in it) and delivers a continuous and even mist. Plus the two-in-one design means fewer bottles cluttering up your under-sink cabinet or countertops. At the very top of the pump, you’ll find an easy-to-grab loop that essentially turns the entire thing into a cleaning caddy that you can tote from room to room. Even better? It’s available in matte black, white, brushed, and brass colorways, so it’s bound to blend with any existing fixtures.
To make it a touch more planet-friendly, swap out the Scott for a reusable cotton roll. And while the Simplehuman citrus grapefruit tablets are included, you could fill the vessel with any all-purpose cleaning favorites you already have at home. So you don’t have to wait until spring cleaning is in full swing to stock up on the best new products.
