I too love the 'Magic Eraser', Tide Pen (great for Mom spots) and green rubber ribbed flossing picks. The most amazing of all modern innovations is the Wet Wipe and the all important Q-Tip!

I know we (men) see this all the time whenever we shop for razors or refills. When I walk down that section and see names like "Turbo", "Mach 3", or "GT-500", I feel like I'm going to buy a sports car instead of razors! Some of those things cost a lot of money, but they don't work any better than the cheap razor brand I've been using for over 20 years!

I also received a free razor in the mail yesterday from Gillette, with the name "Fusion"... Geez! Is my face going to turn red now from a nuclear reaction after shaving?

I love my "Turbie-Twist". Use it to wrap up my hair after the shower. Not heavy and boy, does it take the wet out of your hair! Taught my daughter to use one, too. I take one with me when I travel - be sure to buy the colored ones so they don't get mixed in with the hotel towels!

Hmm...Products I LOVE:

Zippo Lighters (no more fumbling with those stupid bics and they look stylist)
Pilot Dr. Grip Gel Pen (BEST PEN EVER!)
Starbucks Coffee (gives me my "high" in the morning)
Mountain Dew (when Starbucks just won't cut it)
Marlboro Lights Cigarettes (best cigarettes ever)
Oakley Sunglasses (AMAZING is all I have to say)
Hugo Boss Suits (I usually don't buy expensive clothing but I absolutely love these suits)
Harley Davidson Motorcycles (A work of rolling art)
Sony VAIO Laptops (it's lasted me for many years with no problems)
My contact lenses (obvious reasons)
Blackberry PDA (My life is on this thing, I couldn't function without it)

And quite a few more that I can't think of...

Eggsations - its a mix of eggs, peppers, onions and potatoes in the frozen food section. I could be wrong on the name.
Carver Amps- very high power without the clipping
Velodyne Speakers- Superior sound and OMG what bass out of the Sub
Pioneer Elite series Plazma Tv's - best picture and you don't get the burned out pixles you get with LCD
Lincoln- comfort, enough power, JBL sound system, you can't overheat the car because it automatically changes from V8 to V4 and the other cylinders keep the engine cool till you get it to a garage should anything ever break.
My old Kodak DC-260 digital camera-Just a quality ground glass lens and higher quality zoom than the new plastic stuff.

I'll add my vote to the Magic Eraser crowd.

Now, my list:
Pure & Natural Soap I've used the hard milled soap for over 2 decades.
My coffee grinder so I can grind my own coffee.
Duke's Mayo (no sugar, never has had sugar, grew up on it) and thanks to Whole Foods, it's now available in more states than JUST the south. Duke's Mayonnaise - About Duke's (broken link)

Default Sc Johnson Scrubbing Bubbles Shower Cleaner

We really like the SC Johnson Scrubbing Bubbles Shower Cleaner. When you are done with the shower you just press the start button and step out. It sprays something out that keeps the whole shower clean. It makes taking a shower even nicer.
