Eraser Maintenance Tip
Topic: Pens, Pencils
Eraser Maintenance Tip: "To prevent the erasers from hardening, I soak them in warm water mixed with dish washing detergent (once a year). Then I towel dry them and soak them in Armor-All and towel dry them again. This product is normally used to keep tires and dashboards from dry rotting in the sun but it's excellent for erasers too!" a tip from Joe Woodworker's Eraser Collection (via boingboing.net)

General Onyx - New Swedish Snus
Topic: Design
General Onyx -- New Swedish snus. I bought this can yesterday. Swedish Match calls this black plastic can with a silver colored plastic lid 'deluxe packaging'. I am not impressed.

"Swedish Match today has announced the launch of a new premium snus, General Onyx, to be introduced in the Swedish market in November. General Onyx is produced with a special tobacco blend in a new pouch form and deluxe packaging, offering a new standard for snus in Sweden." Read the complete Press Release 25.Oct.2005.
