From an early age, Becky always had a crayon, pencil, colored paper and other craft supplies her Art Teacher dad would give her to keep her out of trouble. Her love of vintage things started when she was little and her parents would stop at any and all antique shops on their family vacations. Armed with the creative bug, great sense of humor (thanks to her mom), a love of all things vintage and a sense of adventure, she moved from a small town in upstate New York to San Francisco in the early 90's to attend the Academy of Art College. After college, she worked as a web designer for a time. In October of 2001 she moved to Seattle and hasn't looked back. She and her two cats currently share an apartment near Lake Washington.

          Who hasn't waved a kitchen towel at the smoke detector? Now, you can have a towel dedicated to the job! I purchased 2 as gifts. They were well received. Giggles were had by recipients and spectators!

          My wife regularly tries to deactivate our smoke alarms with a regular towel, usually to no avail. This specially designed deactivator, complete with instructions, is hard to beat!

            Comments about UncommonGoods Smoke Detector Deactivation Towel:

            Purchased this towel for a daughter. Seems the smoke detector is located just off the kitchen, so no matter what she cooks, if it steams or smokes, the siren goes off. The towel does what it says it will do. She got a big laugh from it.
