Living in an apartment with no outdoor space, I really miss having a garden. To make up for our lack of gardening space I like to keep potted plants dotted around the apartment to add a little touch of greenery. Every room in our apartment features at least one potted plant; an orchid on a shelf, a bromeliad on a bookcase, succulents on a window sill, air plants hanging on a wall... Every room that is, except for our kitchen.
I would love to have a little kitchen garden filled with herbs and edible flowers but alas, our kitchen does not have a window in which to grow them. I've tried growing potted herbs on the divider between the kitchen and the dining area but they just don't want to grow there. But just because I'm not able to grow the kitchen garden I dream of, it doesn't mean that our kitchen has to be completely devoid of "plant life".
In fact, thanks to Boon our little kitchen is full of blooms! These gorgeous flowers may not have any culinary uses but they do come in very handy in the kitchen. You see, these blooms are not just a pretty face. No. While they may be lovely to look at, they're also hard workers.
Take the Forb Silicone Bottle Brush for example. The petals of this not so delicate flower are made of a super tough silicone, which is far more durable than the regular nylon bristles found on most bottle brushes. They're also gentler on plastic bottles and sippy cups, and won't leave scratches. The end of the Forb features a built in nipple cleaner for baby bottles. When it's not being used to keep Mathilde's multitude of sippy cups clean, the Forb Bottle Brush "grows" among the grass blades of our Grass Drying Rack. The Forb Bottle Brush also comes with a vase to keep it standing upright.
The Forb Bottle Brush is not the only bloom in our kitchen "garden". The Stem Drying Rack Accessory is also as functional as it is pretty. It's the perfect place to hang reusable snack bags and small sippy cup parts to dry after washing. When it's not being used it adds a whimsical touch to the kitchen bench.
The Forb Silicone Bottle Brush, and other great Boon accessories, can be purchased in-store at Target.
