    Interesting. I never buy anything off the TV, but I've seen a lot of
    these products advertised. I liked seeing the actual buyer's side of the
    story. Seems like a bunch of crap that will end up buried in my
    garage somewhere anyway. Plus, the thought of having to use all
    those batteries to make a lot of it to work and having keep replacing
    them sounds super annoying and pricey. Thanks for posting.

    Thanks for posting this.
    I always like to check stuff like this out, because most of the time, the commercials for them seem too good to be true. I've ordered a few things over the years, and to be honest, every single item was a huge disappointment, and the quality reminded me of something I would buy at the Dollar Store.

    Okay, I bought something called "tater mitts". They are rubber gloves that have very hard and harsh stuff attached to the fingers and palm and you are supposed to rub a potato raw with them (in 8 seconds no less - instead of peeling). But my hands are not strong enough to rub the potato hard enough or long enough. So these grotesque green things are sitting on the micro wave staring at me...did I mention I paid $26. for them? God, I hate myself for that!

    OMG!
    I found this article about them (w/a video!) lol

    Did you try boiling the potatoes first?
    Seems like a waste of money, energy and time regardless.

    One TV product I'm pretty satisfied with are the Hercules Hooks. The only problem is you can't insert them into the wall where there is a stud. Of course everytime I've wanted to stick one in the wall, I hit a stud. When using the old hammer and nail, I can't find a stud to save my life!

    I remember trying to convince my mother to buy those steel mesh 'no run' pantyhose from TV in the eighties.

    Also, I knew my SS had been watching too much TV at his moms when he said to me, "We need to get one of those vacuum dog haircutters so we can vacuum the dog." And he was serious.

    These are great. I have 3 or 4 of them and they're wonderful for when you've just gotten out of the shower and you're putting on makeup.

    Oh my God! The "As seen on TV" aisle at Wal-Green's is my second stop! I got the PedEgg (or is it Pediegg) and I do love that thing. Tweezy sucked. The light bulb that also cleans the air is crap. That's just the useless crap I've bought in the past couple of weeks. I have a real weakness for this shit....

    Yup, I have several and I use them daily-they are perfect for keeping wet hair out of my face whilst I do my stuff with face packs, moisturising et. God, I sound like old 'contaminated chopstiks' herself!
