It had been a while since I last popped into Yves Saint Laurent, so I just took another Fab field trip. I'm so glad I did because besides leaving with a brand new patent wallet (yay!) — a smaller, gray version of this Yves Saint Laurent Belle De Jour Wallet ($575) — I also left with a helpful tip on how to squeaky clean patent.

Window Washing Avoidance Syndrome (WWAS) is the perpetual postponement of cleaning outdoor windows. It is frequently characterized by a peculiar avoidance of ladders, squeegees, paper towels and other objects associated with outdoor window cleaning. Until now, treatment options have been rare or ineffective. But Windex Outdoor All-in-One works differently. Its breakthrough anti-procrastination technology increases the flow of motivation to the brain, turning this once-daunting task into one accomplished with ease!
So tell us, do you suffer from WWAS?
OK, so I just got an email with one of the most interesting/offbeat diet tips I have ever heard so I just had to share it with you guys.
"Hey Fit! I just wanted to let you in on a little secret that I do so I stop eating when I am full, instead of just picking off my plate. I spray my plate and the extra food with Windex. I know it sounds weird, but it totally works for me!"
Yes, definitely sounds a bit weird (and reminds me of My Big Fat Greek Wedding), but sometimes you just have to do what works for you and if spraying toxic cleaner on your food keeps you from overeating then more power to you girl. Do you have an interesting/offbeat way to keep yourself from overeating? Then share them with us in the comments section below.
The geeks at Gizmodo recently reminded us of something we hope everyone knows, but is clearly worth repeating. Don't clean your HDTV with Windex! In fact, the safest bet is to not clean anything with a screen with an alcohol-based cleanser or harsh solvent. Here's more:
That's what happened when some poor schmo sprayed Windex (or any other cleaner) directly onto his
flat-panelDLP. The liquid drips down to the bottom of the screen and then creeps back up, sandwiching itself between the screen and the protective plastic. Yeah, fingerprints and smudges happen, but use a soft cloth to wipe 'em away.
Older direct view TV's - These can be cleaned with glass cleaner and a paper towel, but it's best not to make a habit of it. Newer tubes that may contain any special coatings, like an anti-glare coating, should be cleaned with a damp cotton cloth, says Techlore.
Plasma - You should clean the front of the TV with a soft, damp cloth. The use of a mild soap for heavy cleaning is acceptable.
LCD Flat Panel - Caution! Use a slightly damp soft cloth to clean the LCD screen and dry with a soft cloth. Do not use any cleaning solvents, such as glass cleaner or soaps, to clean the LCD screen and do not press hard on the screen as it will damage easily.
Geek tip - Next time you are at the drug or electronics store, pick up a Dust-Off Microfiber Cleaning Cloth for your computer and camera screens. They were designed to effectively clean sensitive surfaces without scratching. Any brand works.
