.22 and out in the country. It didn't go far, probably didn't land on anything valuable, and wouldn't have done much if it did.

Does this count? I have mentioned it before, but I thought I would show mine, which I have used extensively. Not bad for a little over $1!It originally looked like this:I disassembled it, added one bolt, a washer, and two nuts. It saves me tons of time scrubbing!

I'm still laughing at "for the woman that only has 4/5ths of a second to get ready".

What needs to be power scrubbed?

Dishes, obviously!

I honestly wonder if that would work. If I cannot clean a dish easily I leave it to soak. Infuriate Mom with one easy trick!

I mostly used that to clean my bathtub. The cleaners that you are supposed to be able to spray, leave, and rinse were no match for my roommate.

The $37 dollar home made 22 silencer I made works really well. It weighs twice as much as my gemtech and is an inch longer but at around 8% of the price of the gemtech it's quieter and definitely worth it.
Took about 300 less days to get the tax stamp back.

Spreader for the spring-loaded ring clip that held the rubber gasket to the door assembly of my washing machine. Getting that thing off was not too bad, getting it back on needed... this thing. Janky as heck and slow to use (alternately backing one nut off a half turn, then the other one), but saved me from having to order and wait for the special tool from LG.
