Turn Your Katol Into Home Decor With This Stylish Coil Case

In case that plain old katol ruins your home's aesthetic.


Summertime in the Metro means OOTDs composed of crop tops, sleeveless shirts, short shorts, flowy skirts, and the like. While we're all about that breezy, hot weather-appropriate look, there's just one problem—mosquitoes. Skin-baring clothing can often lead to more bug bites and itchy flare-ups on parts of the body that aren't normally exposed, particularly the legs.

If you've lived in tropical Manila your whole life, you probably have a go-to solution for all the pesky insects that visit your home like a mosquito lamp or the old-school katol. The latter is a popular choice for its compact size, affordable price tag, and electricity-free operation—but admittedly, it can be kind of an eyesore. No, that doesn't mean you should ditch the coil altogether and pray the bugs don't come around. You can make your katol fit into your home's aesthetic with this Mosquito Coil Holder. You can get it on Shopee from online store FE Sport!

While some homeowners opt to place a mosquito coil in a ceramic bowl or dish, this cool casing lets you display your katol out in the open (for maximum smoke diffusion) without disrupting your space's design scheme. Simply place your mosquito coil inside, light it up as you usually would, and leave it alone do to its job. The coil holder features a birdcage-inspired shape with a sleek metallic finish available in two colors—it's perfect for homes with interior designs that lean towards a rustic, farmhouse-style aesthetic. It'll look especially great in outdoor settings in case you want to keep your garden or patio mosquito-free!
