The 10 most popular things our readers bought on Amazon in …

— Our editors review and recommend products to help you buy the stuff you need. If you make a purchase by clicking one of our links, we may earn a small share of the revenue. However, our picks and opinions are independent from USA Today’s newsroom and any business incentives.

Despite being a short month, February was full of deals on some great products. We saw sales on high-end OLED and 4K smart TVs, mattresses infused with green tea, Instant Pots, robot vacuums, and tons of kitchen and tech accessories. And our readers jumped at the opportunity to score savings on things that, I hope, are already making their lives a little bit better. Here are the most popular purchases our readers made on Amazon last month.

1. A low-profile wireless charger

This slim wireless charging pad went on sale in mid February for $16.99, $9 off the original price. It now looks like that’s the new price, which is a fantastic deal on my personal favorite wireless charger. It’s also much more affordable (and much less bulky) than the best we tested from Samsung. What we love most is that it supports 10W fast charging (with the right cables and adapters, not included).

Get the Anker PowerPort Wirelss Charging Pad for $16.99 and save $9

2. Chainmail to clean cast iron

We’ve touted the effectiveness of chainmail as a cast iron cleaner in loads of our articles, and it’s now a favorite possession among many of our staff as well as our readers. This particular product is only $14, with a coupon to save an extra 5%.

Get the Amagabeli Cast Iron Chainmail for $13.30

3. One of our favorite smart plugs

A smart plug lets you control any device with your smartphone or voice commands if you’ve got an Amazon Echo or Google Home. The TP-Link is one of the best we’ve ever tested, and the $6 discount on this typically $30 device made it an extremely popular option among our readers these past few weeks.

Get the TP-Link Smart Plug for $23.99 and save $6

4. The best affordable robot vacuum

A good robot vacuum can help keep your house tidy between deep cleans. It won’t replace a full-sized vacuum just yet, but if you like the idea of keeping dust and debris to a minimum, or being able to multi-task and clean while you watch TV, a robot vacuum is the way to go. This is our favorite affordable model because it held its own against high-end options in our tests, and it’s under $200 thanks to a $50 discount on the original price and a $20 coupon you can clip on the product page.

Get the iLife A4S Robot Vacuum for $179.99 and save $70

5. The best tax software

Tax Day is only a month and a half away, and our readers have been getting a head start on filing with the help of TurboTax software. Their software has been discounted since late December, and while it’s gone up $5-$10 since then, it’s still far cheaper than you’ll find it for on Intuit’s own website, making it a great way to save even more when you file.

6. The best smart water leak detectors

A smart water leak detector can alert you the second it senses water where there should be none. This can save you thousands of dollars in damage, so it’s no surprise that when our favorite water leak detector went on sale, the homeowners in our audience started buying them up.

Get the Honeywell Lyric Water and Freeze Detector for $57.81 and save $20

7. A small, water-resistant Bluetooth speaker

A good portable speaker can come in handy in the backyard, the bathroom (hello fellow shower rockstars), at the park, or anywhere you go. This model from Anker went on sale in early February and is still only $32, $8 off the original list price. The best part? It’s water-resistant and has a 24-hour battery life.

Get the Anker Soundcore 2 Bluetooth Speaker for $31.99 and save $8

8. A duvet cover made for the coming spring

When the weather starts to warm up, the heavy blankets we used all winter can become oppressive. This duvet insert is made for warmer weather with less stuffing so you don’t wake up in a pool of sweat. It was already affordable at $18, but the fact that it went on sale for just $15 was icing on the cake, making this an obvious choice for most of our readers.

Get the Equinox Thin Duvet Insert for $15.27 and save $3

9. A motion sensor toilet light

These bizarre but fun gadgets have been popular among our readers for quite some time, and when we saw a Lightning Deal to get this one for under $10, we passed it along and our readers bought them out of stock in a flash (I got one too!).

Get the Vintar Motion Sensor Toilet Night Light for $12.99

10. The ever-popular Instant Pot

Despite some bad press around a recall (for a different, less popular model), Instant Pots remained a favorite among our readers. The 6-qt. 9-in-1 model offers nine different pre-programmed settings, making it easy to cook rice, yogurt, eggs, and even cake in this handy device. It’s currently out of stock, but you can always get the Instant Pot DUO Plus 7-in-1 for $100, or check out the Crock-Pot Multi-Cooker that bested Instant Pot in our tests and only costs $70.

LanternAsia returns to Norfolk Botanical Garden, transformed with … – Virginian

When LanternAsia came to Norfolk Botanical Garden for the first time two years ago, the massive, colorful displays transformed the landscape into an outdoor gallery of exotic and whimsical Asian art.

This year, when LanternAsia opens here Friday, it is the exhibit that has been transformed by the garden and its environs.

Many of the 35 new pieces were inspired by coastal Virginia, including sea creatures and plants, said Kelly Welsh, marketing and communications director for the Norfolk Botanical Garden.

One installation in particular grew from a visit last year by the president of Tianyu Arts Culture, the China-based company that produces the exhibit. While touring the children’s garden, he was so enthralled by its carnivorous plants that the company built its lantern version of the Venus’ flytrap included in this exhibit.

“This is a custom show. There’s not been another show exactly like ours. It was really designed with our garden in mind,” Welsh said.

LanternAsia will continue daily through May 13, covering a mile-long walking route. It can be viewed during the day, but at night the fabric lanterns take on a colorful glow when lit. Also new this year will be performances by Chinese dancers.

While much of the exhibit is new, some crowd favorites from 2016 have returned, Welsh noted. Those include a massive dragon, panda bears and a white pagoda made of plates and other dinnerware.

Welsh is expecting the 2018 exhibit to surpass the success of the 2016 event. Although the garden has had to shut down to visitors for more than three weeks while the exhibits are constructed each time, the 2016 event more than made up for the loss of normal garden traffic. With the cost of the exhibit fully underwritten by sponsorships, it generated more than $1.3 million in ticket sales and 2,000 new dues-paying members, according to the garden’s 2015-16 annual report. Of the more than 100,000 people who came to the exhibit two years ago, 37 percent were from out of state, Welsh noted.

The report gives credit to LanternAsia’s “spectacular success” for $2.75 million in renovations and repairs now under way at the garden.

“It was such a success story, so our 80th anniversary was a perfect time to bring it back,” Welsh said.

A $25,000 grant from the Virginia Tourism Corp. Marketing Leverage Program has enabled the Garden to extend its marketing efforts for the event beyond the local area and bring broader awareness of the garden.

In early February, more than a dozen trucks began rolling in, carrying pieces that have since been unpacked and assembled by about 30 Chinese artisans. Welding, gluing and tying, they follow intricate assembly directions. “They take great pride in what they’re doing,” Welsh noted.

An opening party will be held Thursday, the night before the exhibit opens to the public. The event includes live entertainment, local Asian fare and a preview of the exhibit. Tickets to the party are $100 per person.

Throughout LanternAsia, works by local artist Caroline Garrett Hardy will be on display in Baker Hall. Her colorful kimonos and collages are constructed of hand-made Japanese “rice” paper, as well as discarded paper of various textures, some containing fragments of text from rubbings she has done.

Now living in Williamsburg, she gained an admiration for the “Japanese flair for unexpected combinations of patterns” during a trip to Japan in 2012.

Cockroaches infest Hull hospital kitchen, employees warn

Hull Hospital employees are warning of a cockroach infestation in the facility’s kitchen and denouncing administrators for failing to act quickly.

Although staff first noticed the pests last October and November, the signs of an infestation have been clear since February, said Josée McMillan, president of the Syndicat des travailleurs et des travailleuses de la santé et des services sociaux de l’Outaouais (STTSSSO), the union representing the hospital’s non-medical staff.

“As soon as they lift anything, cockroaches pour out from underneath,” McMillan said in French.

There are so many cockroaches, according to McMillan, that employees have resorted to catching the pests in containers, then dumping them into a garbage pail that’s emptied daily.

The union first alerted the regional health authority — the Centre intégré de la santé et des services sociaux de l’Outaouais (CISSO)in early February.

Although an exterminator was dispatched to the hospital three times in as many weeks, McMillan said employees have seen no signs of improvement.

‘Problem has been solved’

Julie Whissell, CISSO’s assistant director of technical services and logistics, says the centre acted immediately to stop the infestation.

“As of yesterday, the problem has been solved,” Whissell said in French on Friday. “We are in control of the situation and there absolutely no more issues when it comes to the food service.”

The hospital continues to work to clean the kitchen, removing unused equipment and accessories, Whissell said.

In an email to Radio-Canada, the Quebec Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food said it had not received any complaints about cockroaches in the Hull hospital’s kitchen.

However, the ministry said the CISSO had itself notified provincial officials about the problem, adding that an inspector is following up with the hospital.
