Do you own a back scratcher?
One day long ago, I was at a local drugstore around Christmastime. There with all the gift-y knickknacks and what-nots was a bucket loaded with back scratchers. That was the year of all the men’s stocking stuffers being the back scratcher. It actually went over really well. I remember my brother(in-laws) seemed happy with them, scratched their own backs, and eventually had fun picking at each other with them.
The back scratcher from that Christmas has since been broken. It was used as a sword by one of our kids. Own newest back scratcher is up for the challenge although it’s uses are not limited to stopping itchiness.
LAUNDRY HACK Back in December 2015 I had herniated disc surgery. Bending and stooping was not really possible for several weeks. I actually didn’t get to do laundry for about 6 weeks, and when I finally was allowed to, it was hard to reach into the washing machine or dryer. Having a back scratcher at that time could have come in handy!
DUSTING HACK Dust not only gathers on furniture but also on baseboards and door casings. Place an old rag over the top of the back scratcher and wrap a rubber band around it. Now you have a easy to use dusting device.
MESSINESS HACK My kids are generally good about putting their dirty clothes in the hamper, but not 100% of the time quite yet. A back scratcher is a lazy way to not have to bend down all the way to pick up the clothes.
FUN AND GAMES Like I mentioned before, back scratchers aren’t just for getting rid of an itch. Siblings have long been known for picking at each other and using a back scratcher can add to the annoyance!
