Stuck in the city for the summer? Here are a few ideas for keeping your kitchen fresh, fly-free, and fragrant when heat strikes. Above: Astier de Villatte Liquid Dish Soap ; $25 from Nickey Kehoe in Los Angeles. Pricey, yes, but city dwellers deserve some consolation for spending the summer behind a laptop. Above: The Anti-Fly Glass Sphere comes with a leather cord for hanging. The refraction of light against the water confuses insects, especially flies, and helps keep them at bay; $99 from Kaufmann Mercantile. Above: If any flies do make it into the kitchen, consider the German-made Leather Fly Swatter ; $14 from Schoolhouse Electric. Above: Keep garbage cans smelling fresh with Hiba Wood Spray ; $20 for the small size, $40 for the larger, from Spartan Shop. Hint: Spray a paper towel with scent and toss it in the bin before changing the trash bag. Above: Add a summery note with a linen tea towel screen-printed with vintage photos from Serie Limitee Louise; shown above, the Omar Tea Towel features a lobster print; €24 ($26.58). Alder & Co. in Seattle offers the Flower Tea Towel for $35.
