The Sweethome and The Wirecutter are lists of the best gadgets and gear for people who quickly want to know what to get. When readers choose to buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we earn affiliate commissions that support our work. Here is an explanation of exactly what we do, and how to support our work.
After considering a dozen linen sheet sets and testing four, we think West Elm’s Belgian Flax Linen Sheets offer the best value. They feel luxurious to sleep in, they’re softer and cheaper than other sets, and they receive fewer complaints about wearing thin.
After testing seven string trimmers (aka weed whackers) on 12,598 square feet of field, the Ego ST1502-S Power+ 15" String Trimmer is our choice—a long-running cordless tool as powerful and affordable as a gas model but with less noise and hassle.
We help support the hundreds of hours that go into our evaluations through affiliate commissions on purchases made through our links. We’re committed to publishing unbiased guides that clearly detail our decision-making criteria to our readers, but we just want you to know.
Here's how to support our writers and our work. For more on our ethics, ideas and how we work, read this. We obtain the products we review through a mixture of buying our own and working with companies to borrow review units. Our policy is to return or donate products after we’re finished working with them.
Find an error?: Also, If you notice a guide that needs a little freshening up, or has errors, please tweet us at @homesweethome or email us at email@example.com and we'll fix it. Thank you.
