Tuesday Toolsday: Krud Kutter Giveaway

Last Toolsday we asked you to identify a pair of jagged-looking clippers.  Most people guessed it was a cutting tool, but not many people knew what material it was designed to cut – the answer is sugar. In the olden days, sugar was purchased in large cone-shaped cylinders.  The sugar nippers were used to cut pieces off the cone.

We randomly picked one winner out of all last week’s comments and that lucky person is Richard from Otsego, MN, he thought it was a plant pruner. 

Next Tuesday, we will choose 12 winners. Each winner will receive a bottle of Krud Kutter House Wash and a bottle of Krud Kutter Window Wash — perfect for spring cleaning!  Both concentrated cleaners will wipe off the winter gunk and get your house looking great. All Krud Kutters are non-toxic, biodegradable and water-based. So the run-off will not harm your surrounding landscape.

To win the Krud Kutter prize pack, post a comment (click “comment” above) and tell us what this tool (below) is and where it is commonly found. You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one winner.

Are you planning some backyard projects this spring?  Let us help. We’ve got plenty of ideas, inspiration and instructions for turning your backyard into a spectacular hang out for entertaining and relaxing. We’ve got tips for designing an outdoor kitchen, instructions on how to build a pergola, tiki hut or fire pit. Or do you want to install a backyard bocce court, putting green or chess set – we’ve got step-by-step instructions on how to build those too.

On Tuesday, April 3, we will select the winner then start up a new giveaway for another tool, which will be given away the Tuesday after that.

You have until April 3, 2012, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the Krud Kutter prize pack.  
Official Rules.
