Do Steam Cleaners actually work?ย  We investigate.. Infomercial-mania I adore the art (and science) of infomercials.ย  I remember sitting up late at night when I was younger, watching the food dehydrator infomercial and being mesmerized by Rom Popeilโ€™s ability to sell something seemingly useless and make it look so fascinating and...
In 1999, Proctor & Gamble introduced us to Swiffer. A Swiffer can be best explained like a razor and blade sales strategy. You purchase the razor handle for a great price, and you'll always have to pick up the refill for that exact handle and pay whatever price the...
You've seen the commercials. You know the products. We're told our homes are a veritable hotbed for all germs, spores, bacteria, mold, and mildew. It's quite miraculous that we aren't all battling plague 24/7. Ok, sarcasm aside, I think we're being a little oversold on the whole notion of...

Sponges and cloths are playgrounds for nasty kitchen bacteria. Bacteria goes everywhere because we spread it about while cooking, cleaning, and preparing meals. Just think of how many times you touch and use that dish towel while preparing a dish such as roast chicken! The concept of paper towels is what...
