Finger Pinkies The Secretary's Hand Cleaner. Also an ideal companion around the house? Donated by Jeff H.

According to Anita in Brooklyn, this is called "OTEFUKI" Te is "hand" Fuki is "wipe." the O is the Japanese honorific, so you could call it "Honorable Hand Wipe" if you like.

CVS Moist Towelette with lemon scent Thanks Ruth and Dwight.

Cook Arts Science & Technology Center Insect Repellent Towelette Kudos to Irene.

Want an allsky for your planetarium? Download these 6 files created with Digidome, print them to slides and put them in your allsky slide system, if you are into 1990's planetarium technology.

Watch out, these are big files (for 1990's technology). About 1.6 megs each. They open into a new window.

Contact the museum's curator if you're interested in moist towelette content for Digistar or other fulldome video systems.

Here's a Moist Towelette do-it-yourself recipe I found on the web!

							24 squares white paper towels.
							1 cup witch hazel
							1 teaspoon glycerine

							Separate and stack each of the paper towel squares from the roll; 
							cut each square in half. Place the rectangles in front of you vertically, 
							fold each rectangle into thirds as though folding a business letter. 
							Fold each in half as though closing the cover of a book.

							Combine witch hazel and glycerine. Mix well and pour over towelettes. 
							Let stand for a few minutes to absorb all of the liquid. 
							Stack in a lidded plastic container or zip-lock type bag.
