The Inspired Home Show may be postponed for another year, but the International Housewares Association still wants you to know about the hot new home products that are soon heading to the market! David Viggiano, lifestyle expert and International Housewares Association spokesperson, joined us today with a look at these innovative products.
Practical items for the home as we are still spending more time in the house and our yards. We want our products to be:
- Safe for the family, especially for kids and pets
- All-natural: no harsh chemicals or fake perfumes
- Good for the environment creating less of a carbon footprint and less waste that ends up in landfills
- Money Saving: a small upfront investment that lasts for years
Infuse™ by Casabella
This first-of-its-kind concentrated cleaning system designed to save money, reduce waste, and provide an effective way to clean every surface in your home.
- The infuse cleaning system starts with refillable spray mops and spray bottles.
- You simply fill the container with water and add the non-toxic cleaning concentrate and go!
- This effective deep cleaning system uses non-toxic, biodegradable formulas in a concentrate.
- The Infuse spray mop is unique in that it eliminates the need to repeatedly buy cleaning liquids in bulky, plastic containers and costly, disposable mop pads that end up in landfills. One machine-washable microfiber mop pad replaces at least 400 disposable mop pads.
- Similarly, one Infuse refillable spray bottle delivers over 40,000 sprays, replacing at least 300 single-use bottles.
- Comes in formulas for every surface in your house: hardwood floor, multi-surface floor, bathroom, glass & window, and all-purpose.
- If every person in the US replaced just one disposable spray bottle with a reusable Infuse bottle there could be nearly 16 billion fewer spray bottles going into landfills and oceans (yes, billion!)

MSRP: $3.99 – $38.99 – Available at Target and InfuseClean.com
