Cleanstep Mat

Does it work? Yup, it is a mat.

First impressions; this mat will not win special awards for being fashionable.   It is also on the small side.

It's not going to 'grab' mud or other debris off footwear, so the real question is does it stuck up moisture or work better than a normal mat. It does seems to. The fabric of the mat is good at soaking up moisture better than a typical doormat.

It's best use maybe for pets; for example, when walking the dog.

Note:  Has to be washed before using.

Stamp Out

Does it work? Conditional

The "Stamp Out "stamper is for those of us who would like to minimize the chance that personal financial information could be stolen.

The stamp is more of a deterrent than a replacement for a shredder.  It is easier and more convenient than sorting and saving items up for the monthly or weekly shedding session; to be used in lower risk areas as in credit card applications in the mail.  If you have a sizable amount of paper, this is not the solution.

A couple of notes:
* It does not replace a shredder.  For example, it will not cover up text that was impressed on paper (e.g. by a typewriter)
* Could be improved by making it a bit larger to cover a more area.
