The Best (and Worst) Infomercials

submitted on April 29, 2010 by tammy987 in "Products / Gadgets"
Thought it was a good time to put this topic on since it's one in the morning and I'm sure we've had those nights staying up all night with nothing on but infomercials. Eeek
Good Housekeeping tried out all of these products and rated them by telling you which ones work and which ones don't. I bought a couple of these Red Face (Pro Calk: Thumbs down! and Magic Jack: Thumbs Up!) Curious if anyone else has bought some of these.

    We considered buying the aqua globes and magicJack, but thankfully resisted the urge! Amused

      Oh, yes - I forgot that I saw those Debbie Meyer Green Bags at Kroger, so I could read the box details and look at them closely. They are about $1 a bag, so expensive that you would want to reuse them. But that sort of thing shouldn't be reusable. I can imagine all sorts of bacteria hanging out inside and transferring to the next item you store in there. (for up to 10 days, Razz )
