Most of the people who buy infomercial products can't read, so this may not go very far.
I remember in the '70s, when TV shut down at about 10.30pm, and just before the queen appeared and the national anthem was played, there was a infomercial every night. There was one which told people to look out for milk bottles building up outside the front doors of elderly neighbours. There was also one which showed a cartoon character drowning after eating a full-course meal before swimming in the ocean. There was also one which showed a child being killed while flying their kite under a powerline. This one terified me as a child.
Infomercials I thought....
The snuggie with the but flap kills me, or the foot scrubber that prevents you from having to bend over, this is good for preggers.
Or the space bags you use a vacuum to seal. What if you vacuum is a POS and doesn't have good suction?
I could go on....
I seem to recall a product (back in the 1980's) that was, for all intents and purposes..spray paint, that men would use to hide bald spots on their head. I also recall that it was endorsed by actor, Ted Danson. Does anyone remember what it was called?
I hate to say this, but I see those products in Walgreen's and I want them!
Does it make me wrong to want to use the handy chopper, the super sharp knives that never need sharpening, the ceramic non stick pan, and the grabber?
Am I a sucker for any cleaning item that comes on a long stick that makes it easier to scrub the tub? Well, yes I am.

I keep seeing the infomercials for WEN hair products that claim not to contain sulfates. I have heard mixed reviews about the hair system. Some say it leaves their hair feeling greasy while others swear by it. I though about ordering it although they want to keep resending the...

What is your best or worst memory of the first day of school?Most kids are very excited on the first day of school. Maybe it's to wear their new clothes, use their new supplies, or just see old friends. All of us have memories of those day. Some are good and some are not so good.
