  1. According to a news report, a certain school in Garden City, MI was recently faced with a unique problem.

    A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the washroom. That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints.
    Every night, the maintenance man would remove them and the next day, the girls would put them back.

    Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. He called all the girls to the washroom and met them there with the maintenance man. He explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night.

    To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, he asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required.

    He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet bowl, and cleaned the mirror with it.

    Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror.

    This brings back some fond memories.

    It sounds exactly like the thinking that would have been done back in my younger days when Dad was Supt. of Schools. He was always facing similar type problems and thought long and hard to find acceptible solutions that would STICK. :)

    Most teachers and administrators seem to lack that ability today. :(

  3. I would hook a electric charge up to it .The metalic sheet on back conducts it just fine
