    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.

    This morning I tackled cleaning my refrigerator. As I was cleaning I was thinking of a way to keep the bottom drawer area clean from all the spills from liquids, crumbs and such. So I grabbed three paper towels and slid them under the drawers keeping some hanging down as a 'Let's-see-how-this-will-work.' :rolleyes:

    It will depend on how much moisture or condensation builds up inside of the fridge. Due to age or whatever, some seem to have more. It's possible one of those textured drawer liners may also work and not fall to pieces with moisture. Magic Erasers are the easiest refrigerator clean. They work well on the seal as well. After I clean it, I also windex the inside because it makes the glass look all shiny. (I'm sort of a cleaning nut......)
