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.

One of my best girlfriends sent me a photo of a meal her daughter made while at college. Under the photo her daughter had written that the meal came out great even though she set off the smoke detector and had to have an RA come to stop it from going off. Saw this towel in the catalog and knew I had to send it to her. She loved it!

Well-done dinners

By

Comments about UncommonGoods Smoke Detector Deactivation Towel:

My mother notoriously set off the smoke detectors when I was growing up so we always knew when dinner was ready. This tweak was made for all "well-done" cooks out there. The ironic thing? Mom went on to become a firefighter!

      • aint nobody got time for that
      • cooking
      • waving frantically

      Comments about UncommonGoods Smoke Detector Deactivation Towel:

      Until the day smoke detectors have a fajita setting or burnt popcorn filter, this is the best tool for those sensitive and annoying smoke detectors. Can't cook with them, can't live without them.
