Handy New Wiper For Runny Noses
Business is booming for a Wisconsin housewife whose "drippy nose" prompted her to invent Noseys, billed as "the world's first reusable, stick-on outdoor nose wiper."
"I love to hike and ski in winter but my nose always drips," explains Sharon Marcovich, of Superior. Tired of having to stop to remove mittens and dig for a Kleenex, she got to thinking it would be nice to have something soft, warm and absorbent affixed to the back of a glove or mitten.
The "Noseys" she developed are selling like hotcakes. They're little soft absorbent pillows that stick onto the backs of mittens and gloves, right on hand to catch drips that collect on the ends of noses in cold weather. "They're particularly handy for wood
choppers, farmers working outdoors, hikers, skiers, snowmobilers, and children from three on up," Sharon told FARM SHOW. "They stick well on almost all mittens or gloves and are completely machine washable and dryable. The Scotchmate tape used for fastening is similar to Velcro but the stickum is better and the tape more flexible."
Noseys retail for $4.98 per package (two Noseys), plus 75 cents for postage and handling. Available in burgundy, red, navy, black/white plaid, and red plaid.
