I like to tinker, That is what I like to do. Sometimes I drop a rhyme, Along with a tool or two. I use what I have on-hand, I keep projects super simple. I do not need more stuff, What I do have is ample. Drafts of projects are in my head, Before they are written in ink. One motto to live by is to Reduce, Reuse, and Rethink.

    Floss Refill

    Thank you for reviewing and commenting. That really depends on if you are willing to wind the small personal dispenser spool from a large professional refill spool. If you walk this route then you will need a manual or powered spool winder. The easiest route is buying another personal floss dispenser and switching the full spool into the smaller personal floss dispenser. You can buy a 200yrd professional refill spool on line. Where you would wind the small spool from the refill spool. There isn’t a market to sell a refill spool for a personal floss dispenser. I switched the floss spools from an over the counter personal floss dispensers. The dollar store sells a 55yrd personal floss dispenser where I open the case and switch it into the smaller floss dispenser. Ez

    Glue Gloves

    Thank you for reviewing and commenting. I am sorry for any confusion you had with this instructable. You are correct that one should not cover their unprotected hands with Super Glue or nail polish.On the introduction page the Objective paragraph says “I will apply Nail Polish, Super Glue and Plasti Dip directly on to a thin layer of glue covering my skin.” Then on Step 1: Materials, I separated the Glue Gloves Material from the Demo Materials. I can see by skimming over the Objective paragraph there may be a disconnect between the Glue Glove Material and the Demo Materials.Do you have a suggestion on how to convey the idea of using the Glue Gloves to prevent the Demo Materials from bonding with someone’s hands?I will look into the non-drying hand soap.

    Thank you for your perspective. Yes, you are correct, you can use any one of the glues mentioned to prevent enamel paints, Super Glue or Plasti Dip from bonding with your hands.

    Thank you for reviewing and commenting. I have used moisturizing creams to remove dirt from my hands. I have also tried creams before as well, but my hands were greasy.

    Thank you for reviewing and commenting. That sounds like a good idea, I will file that away for future use.

    Correction: I appreciate your views and I am honored that you made the time to critique this work.

    Thank you for replying with your suggestions. Although, I can see where you are coming from, this instructable was streamlined by design. Each illustration has 3 easy to follow steps. The 3 substances are the only thing different. I have seen instructables where the creator made 2 or 3 instructables where there were minor differences. I do not see any benefit with that model.Sometimes I use Bold font so the reader knows that what they are seeing is important. Other times I use Bold font to break the monotonous tone, to wake up the reader. It is hard to find that balance sometimes.I appreciate your views and I am honored that you made the time to critic this work. Thank you for your contributions to instructables.With respectEzman

    Thank you for reviewing and commenting. You are correct it is quite effective. A second layer of skin is useful from time to time.

    Thank you for reviewing and commenting. I am sorry for any confusion, could you help me understand what seems scattered? Maybe I can help make it more clear.Ezman.

    Yes, you are correct. Just like another layer of skin. Along with the substance stuck on the outside there is also a mild exfoliating benefit which will the remove dead skin and dirt stuck on the inside. Thank you for reviewing and commenting.

    Thank you for your encouraging words and support. instruct on!

    Thank you for reviewing and commenting. This application is versatile. Apply just 1 thin layer, more will require additional drying time. Most of the time I cover just my fingertips, up to the first knuckle, not my whole hand. It depends on what I am doing. Continued success in your endeavors.

    Great job. The bead looks good and is functional. Good job of using what you had on hand to overcome an obstacle.

    The large wooden bead sounds like a good idea. At first I was at a loss to what you were saying about the point protector. I am glad that you found a way to customize your Shawl Stick. Post a pic of your finished design.Thank you for commenting and keep designing.

    Thank you for reviewing and commenting. I am glad you found another use for this device. Haramaki sound like a great idea. That would help my back stay warm. A tight knit could help with Dunlap Syndrome, too. Thank you for sharing.

    Thank you for reviewing and commenting.  I agree he is cute, I like to give him a flick and watch him stand straight up again.  Sort of like a Weeble.  Clippy takes a flick showing he is rhymatic. I think Clippy is a hero.  What do you think? ͼ(*ȯ*)ͽ

    Cool instructable. Did you test the water to know that the lava rocks needed to be cleaned? Is there a way to reuse the poly-fil?
