This is a Thingamabob. You need one.
You need this like a cat owner needs a lint brush. Like a morning needs coffee. Like a car accident victim who is trying to rip off their insurance company for scads and scads of money needs to always wear his “doctor prescribed” surgical collar, even if he thinks no one is looking. You need this.
I don’t know the actual name of this thingamabob but every hardware store carries them. It’s the sort of thing that you would never think to buy. I’m not sure why I thought to buy it, but I’m glad I did.
In the past 10 years I have used this thingamabob to scrape stickers off just about everything, clean dried paint off of windows, clean up messy silicone, scrape guck off my counter and slice through my thumb. One of the aforementioned incidents was an accident. I’m not telling which one. Guessing’s always more fun.
Behold … the razor squeegee.
A razor blade encased in plastic. Or genuine metal, depending on how extravagant you are. I used to have a metal one. I broke it. Now I have a plastic one. I hope to graduate back to the metal once I break this one.
The blade, as you can see has been well used. When it gets to this point you simply slide the blade out and replace it with a new one. Unless you’re me. In which case you keep using the rusty old thing.
I realize you’re probably looking at this post thinking … Uh, great, thanks Karen. FOR WASTING 2 MINUTES OF MY LIFE! I passed up checking out Design*Sponge for this???! You can take your weirdo “Razor Squeegee” and shove it up your #$$%&!!
But the truth is … these 2 minutes haven’t been wasted because if you go out and buy a “Razor Squeegee” I guarantee you’ll make that 2 minutes back within the first week of owning it. Within the first day if you’re lucky.
And if you’re really lucky the purchase of your new “Razor Squeegee” will also gain you entry into the exciting world of a genuine emergency room!
It wasn’t as bad as it looks. And luckily for me, I had a tetanus shot a couple of years ago following an altercation with a rusty car trunk! But consider that disgusting picture a warning. The “Razor Squeegee” really is a must have tool. You just must be careful with it.
**At no point did I ever make an insurance claim against the above stated injury.**
