Every Wednesday, Unclutterer.com posts a single-use item to laugh at, and some have been pretty funny. Take the Chompr, a device to help you eat your hamburger without making a mess, or the Tootsie Tanner, a tanning bed just for your feet. However, some unitaskers, like the Onion Goggles, have really tempted me, and one, the Flying Alarm Clock, I had already given to Mr. Campbell as a Christmas present in 2007.
A couple of weeks ago, Unclutterer posted the Bra Dryer. I’m not ready to give up precious space to keep one in our house, but I think that this device is more Onion Goggle-practical than Chompr-silly, and these commenters were spot on in identifying issues that D+ women face:
1. “[W]hen you have to pay close to $70 for one bra you do what you can to keep them in shape for as long as possible.”
2. “The only bras that fit me and keep me from having back problems cost anywhere from 100 to 150 dollars and have structural support (i.e., padding) that takes about two days to air dry in damp weather. I live in Portland, Oregon. The high heat of dryers causes warping in the underwire, prematurely ages the elastic, and can melt and distort plastic boning.”
3. “I think this product has the wrong target. It should be for the DD+ girls whose bras take longer to dry due to more fabric, would never go the mesh bag/dryer route cause it ruins the underwires and have a lot of $$ invested in their bras so would spend the money to prolong their life.”
What do you think?
