I moved this strange-looking object three of four times, from random place to random place, before I stopped to examine it.
I officially have absolutely no idea where it came from, but thankfully I didn’t have to wonder what it was.
According to the information printed on the item itself, it’s a Shampoo Massage Brush.
Yeah. That actually doesn’t help at all.
But somehow, even though I’d hesitated to declutter it before because I didn’t know what it was (so who knows if we desperately need it?!?!), knowing what it was also made me briefly wonder if we should keep it.
Because then I realized I’ve made it through the last 42 years using only two, not-even-labeled hands for this purpose. And I’ve survived.
With hair that’s almost always clean.
And then, as I wrote this post, with the thingamajig long gone, I realized that perhaps it’s for massaging shampoo into carpet?
And I felt that pang of Decluttering Regret.
Until I realized that I’ve also made it 42 years without needing a carpet shampoo massaging brush either.
I guess I’ll survive.
