Twelve Germ-Free Inches!
I needed a new ruler and there I was at, yes, the 99¢ Only store yet again.
And this thing is staring me in the face:
Hey for 99¢ only, the price was right! So I bought it.
I have placed a Toolie Bird by it for scale.
Aside from what you’re thinking – which is that Westcott sounds like the name of a chain of expensive hotels rather than a purveyor of fine measuring devices (Don’t worry, I thought the same thing.) – aside from that, what you’ve noticed is that they’ve manufactured a ruler protected with something called “Microban” which it seems “fights stain and odor causing bacteria.”
Now, has this been an issue among those who use rulers perhaps more frequently than I do? Is this something that I just hadn’t heard about or experienced? Because I’ll be honest with you, I haven’t had this problem.
…What the hell are you people measuring?
