Inner Vision is a weekly digest connecting the dots between great everyday objects and the culture and techniques behind living well with them. In this weekend’s edition, we share tips for squeezing a few more sheets out of an "empty" ink jet cartridge, shaving with olive oil instead of chemical-based foams or creams, and how to fit a picnic blanket in your back pocket.

* We took a look another look at the field of watering cans and found that our current pick, the Haws Bosmere V115, is still the best. But since it's out of stock until the end of July, we've named the OXO Outdoor Pour and Store as a runner-up in case you need one right now. We also included our long-term test notes from using the Haws for the past year, and updated the competition section.
After 45 hours of research and testing, we found the best pepper mill for most people. The Peugeot Paris U’Select was the first pepper mill over a century ago, and it’s still the best. Its sharp, steel mechanism ground 1/2 tsp. of pepper faster and more evenly than the competition.
