Ever feel like the terms “barrel-aged” and “charcoal-filtered” could be applied to some of the less exciting areas of your life? Archer products is bringing everyone’s favorite liquor to the sink with Dish Whiskey. Forget your grocery store brand dish soap that smells like tangerines or handfuls of lilacs, this stuff smells good enough to drink, even if you definitely shouldn’t. Alcohol has demonstrated its usefulness as a solution to many problems, so why not use it to also deal with pots and pans crusted with manly things like meats and hearty stew?

Archer products also makes a series of air sprays that are a distinct departure from the typical aromas like “shady island flowers” and “festival of candles.” These sprays instead claim to replace the smells that occur naturally with scents that demand serious business and leave your pad reeking of manliness. I’d never dreamed there would be a can to make my house smell like “hearth stone, gun powder and damp timber” but now that I know “Hunting Lodge” exists I refuse to accept anything less. If a life of wilderness and mounted beast heads isn’t fast enough for you, “European Sports Car” kicks it up a notch with all the speed and racing fury you crave. Finally, there’s “Distillery” if you want more than your dishes to say “why yes, those are oak barrels.”

You can order Dish Whiskey and the air fresheners at individually, or as a complete package with free shipping.

If you're scared of clowns or haunted cars, this isn't the list for you

The best Stephen King movies often use the source material as a basis for the film, and then the directors put their own twist on the story to pull the audience in even more. From Stanley Kubrick to Rob Reiner, famous filmmakers have operated within their own framework to turn otherwise forgotten Stephen King books into some of the most beloved of the last 40 years. These are the best Stephen King movies made from the best Stephen King books. These pictures range from coming-of-age stories to horrifying science fiction classics.

Brand Profile: How Dr. Squatch went from a viral social media startup to men’s grooming sensation

"Most guys don't think about what bar of soap they use when they are washing their body. Let's face it, they're probably still using the soap your mommy bought for her little man. Is that what you want? To smell like mommy's little man?"

The opening of many of the advertisements from Dr. Squatch feels less like a commercial and more like a skit that you would actually stay and pay attention to. It reminds us of 20 years ago when Geico introduced the cavemen and kept us watching commercials instead of taking the opportunity to go to the bathroom. It is a soap made for men, according to them, "men who build things, men who open the pickle jar on the first try, and men who catch foul balls without spilling their beer."

Laundry Sauce detergent pods for divine-scented laundry.

Most laundry detergents come in the same boring scents, the same uninspired packaging, and the same goopy, unpleasant format – seriously, what do they put in these bottles? Take a quick stroll down any detergent aisle, and you’ll see and smell a spring breeze, crisp linen, or intense fresh, whatever that means. They use a lot of the same aromas and just slap different names on the labels, too. Sure, doing laundry is a necessity, but surely there’s a way to make it more fun. There must be something better than an “intense” or “crisp” aroma.
