That, in case you in your throw away culture have forgotten entirely, used to be called good old American ingenuity, back before the socialists took over and turned us from Americans into godless American'ts.* Well, by this time my unmentionables had soaked well past their needed time, and so it was time to finish the rinsing, wringing out and hanging process (on some rope in the unused upstairs bedroom). I did leave out two important products from the glasses repair description. The first is the Mr. Muscle Windex I bought for screen cleaner but came in handy to pre-clean the gluing surfaces. The other is a real treasure that I have not seen since landing in Bangkok on October 2nd- Cocktail Napkins! They are "hygienic" and soft at the same time.
*For those of you who don't know me I will use this to give you a sarcasm alert!
