When we saw the name Doc Scrubber, we pictured a surgeon with scrubbed hands raised. While BrightFort's freeware does indeed scrub docs, it sanitizes Microsoft Word DOC files, not the hands of sawbones.

They're described as "smart, slim, style" headphones, but they look a lot more like pot scrubbers or perhaps some kind of … Read more

There were so many things to consider: regular or mini sized, mesh or sponge, soap squirter or standard, Walgreen's or OXO. And though I've been known to enjoy doing the dishes, my main goal was to find a scrubber that expedited the process. That is until I met the Bubble Scrubber.
Incorporated into this souped-up scrubber is a large bubble wand that sends a combination of Dawn and microbial remnants of last night's spaghetti into the air. It isn'… Read more
