These white microfiber cloths are larger, at 6" x 7-1/2", and thicker than usual. Made for medical equipment (so you know the quality is excellent), they're dandy for eyeglasses, lenses, computer screens and other electronic equipment. White with a dark blue edge (with a small logo in one corner) they're actually attractive and could double as pocket squares. Bundled by the pair so you'll get (6) cloths in our Pkg(3), or try our super low 20-pair price.

Introduce your house plants to the Book of Ecclesiastes and let them turn toward the window all by themselves so they get photosynthesized on all sides. This motorized turntable measures 10-3/4" dia x 2-1/8" tall and turns on a dozen internal ball-bearings so slowly you might not even notice. But trust us, it's turning. You set it for (1) or (2) revolutions per week, like in a developing nation, and add (3) C-cell batteries for power. Will hold up to 40 lbs.

"Very interesting," our chief bottle washer said. This 3-1/16" tall x 1-7/16" dia corked glass bottle has a cream-colored rubber coating on the outside and a 15/32" ID mouth, with a little lip like an old-time baby bottle. The coating may make the bottle less likely to break if you drop it, It will certainly make it less likely to scatter shards of glass all over the floor! Holds approx 30ml (1 oz). Now with corks included and perfect for writing special messages on.
Our magnetic sheets aren't large enough to make a magnetic bed, but they're just right for making a bulletin board, hanging on to a rounded surface, or clinging to a car door with their glossy magnetic side while their self-adhesive side holds your removable sign. They're a flexible, very dark brown rubber-like material, easily cut with scissors. These large sheets, a 2-ft piece is cut from the 2-ft wide material, and you pick a light (.011" thick) non-adhesive, a medium (.018") self-adhesive, or a slightly thicker (.021") self-adhesive sheet. Our PKG(2) is a 2 Foot x 2 Foot sheet.
These are not only tops in our book, but there are a dozen of them. Plastic tops, approx 3" dia, with assorted diffraction grating patterns on top. Discs with very short axes, they cling close to the surface of whatever they're spinning on, which is cool. Safety-tested to be free of lead and other nasty stuff.
So we've got a mountain of 7" long wooden stakes/skewers flying 2" x 2-3/8" red-orange paper flags with a black paw print on each side. Might be a wolverine. Might be a bearcat or coyote. Might be a beagle. Don't start with us, just buy 'em because where can you get (500) of anything for less than nine bucks? Useful on construction sites, for laying out gardens, or holding sandwiches together, especially if you're a University of Michigan or Cincinnati alum.
