Have seen those things to wash the inside of your car windshield with the long handle and microfiber head. Thought they might be interesting but I never buy those things on info-mercials as they not only get you on price but on s&h charges. I have trouble reaching into the corners of the back windshield without clambering all over the back seat so had thought about making me one.
Was in Dollar Tree and low and behold they had them for $1- got me two, used one to clean off window dust and streaks and the other have laying on my dash to wipe when window fogs over in cold weather. A little spritz of my vinegar solution and the windows don't fog back up till the defroster heats up. They work great and can wash the little microfiber heads if they get dirty. They get all the way down in the corners unlike a squeegee.
One impulse buy I am glad I made. Thinking about going back and getting several more before they are gone to go in kids Christmas baskets since I see how well they work. Don't even think about ordering one off TV. Look out for them in your local Dollar Tree.
Also was shopping for candle containers. Found some cute Libbey candy dishes in heart and star shapes. In larger containers you know how candles burn just a pit in the center around the wicks and leave a lot of expensive wax around the edges, Got me some of those colored glass "jewels" Like goes in aquarium and put them in all around the edges of the dish then left about 1 1/2 inch right around the candle wick and poured wax very gently. They came out really pretty and the light sparkles off the jewels as the candle burns down plus uses less than 1/2 the amount of expensive wax and scent for each one. Another money saving tip on candles, instead of buying expensive wax dye, Melt one of the grandkids broken crayons into the wax to color it. Candles always make good gifts as almost everyone likes them and you can use fancy teacups from the thrift or dollar store, unusual bowls, or unsual votive holders with your own blend of scent to make them. Another tip is put them in the freezer a couple of days after you make them. They will burn a lot longer.
Feel the difference in those cheap votives and ones you make. They whip air into them when they make them so they look big but actually have much less wax and burn up very rapidly. Home made lasts much longer and you can adjust the scents to your liking.
