Forget Sponges—Turns Out This Kitchen Tool Is Just as Germy

Eleven percent of survey respondents admitted that they’ll only replace theirs after a full week of use, despite the fact that in the report, infectious disease expert and microbiologist Jessica Malaty Rivera says “used dishcloths can be a haven for bacteria,” including E.coli. Think of everything that hits your countertops in the course of a week—now imagine spreading that around with the same towel you use to dry plates with. “Because they are multipurpose and often go...

Holly’s Café, a new coffee shop offering a sophisticated array of ‘to die for’ desserts created by two chefs that have worked in Michelin star kitchens in the UK and Ireland, has recently opened by the sea in Kilkee, Co

Clare. The café, whose eye-catching pastries, cakes and cookies along with their scones and soda bread are all freshly made in house each day, has initially opened for takeaway only in line with COVID-19 restrictions. Once it’s safe for them to do so, the café will have the capacity to comfortably seat thirty people inside and a further twenty people outdoors. Having spent years mastering their trade at luxury five-star hotel, The Ritz London, and honing their skills in the likes of Adare Manor’s Michelin-starred The Oak Room restaurant, in Co. Limerick, it comes as no surprise that Co-Owners, Holly Kelliher’s and Jon Butler’s picture perfect pastries are as enjoyable to eat as they are pleasing to the eye.  All...

Good news for families! Those movies you wanted to see in theater are (mostly) going to be hitting home video or streaming super early

With public gatherings heavily discouraged or outright banned across the country, distributors are release their new titles to the only venue accessible to most people during the coronavirus pandemic: the living room. Even though Onward only hit theaters on March 6 Disney made the Chris Pratt-led Pixar feature, available to stream on Disney+ on April 3.
