Since having total hip replacement and not being able to bend over to pick up those nasty pieces of lint on the carpet or the grass tracked into the kitchen.......I figured there had to be a way to handle this. I am using a cane (part of the time) so I attached a piece of double face tape on the bottom of my cane. Could use anything else that is long enough. This way I can snatch up those things on the floor that bug me without asking my poor husband to constantly pick up this and that. Men do not seem as annoyed about such things as we women are. Has sure saved a lot of frustration for me and hope someone else will find this helpful.
