    I do too!! I actually use it for back scratching, but you've given me some additional uses. They are marvelous little things!!

    I have a thing similar to that that spritzes olive oil. I don't like the aerosol cans of oil "spray."

    I have a wooden back scratcher but I only use it for scratching.. I do however have telescopic metal back scratchers, and they're a bit useless for relieving an itch so I use them sometimes as you do with the wooden one... :D

    That would be sort of like getting a back scratch from a Cyborg. :p

    Actually no, surprisingly enough they are exactly the opposite. The claws are rounded off so it's like getting a back scratch from someones' knuckles...useless!! :D

    That could come in handy if someone were to try to break into a window. Just poke them in the eye...........

    I don't have one of these, but would like to get one. I'm always trying to prop one up in the fridge leaning it against stuff.
    I generally buy the organic and not all have the wide neck option.

    I just made this - I took a 24" long, 1" wide thin board (30" would have been better, but I had 24), one end is wrapped in several soft (produce) plastic bags and covered with duct tape. The other end is wrapped in clean soft rags and secured with a rubber band. I dipped the rag end in water with Borax mixed in and squeezed it out. I went around the ceiling of one room and down the corners, and got rid of those almost invisible insects.

    I won't be selling them on tv, but it's getting the job done.

    Follow up on previous post... I think I'm gonna like this! You can sit down and do it, it doesn't kill your arms, and supposedly you can unravel only as much as you need. It's in a pile in the basement now. We'll see.

    @Nancy Hart That is too cool!! Now I'll know what to do with all the extra extension chords behind the Christmas tree. This is actually pretty.
