    I wish I knew! They are littered around the house like confetti. It doesn't matter if I've swept and vacuumed that day I will still find them lying around. Drives me nuts!

    Haha I was cleaning under the couch cushions today, and I couldnt believe how many I found!! I also laughed as we visited my inlaws on Halloween and saw a strip next to their sidewalk. The other day, my 4 year started cracking up when looking at me, and I couldnt figure out why till he pulled a strip out of my hair. He had put it on the arm of the couch to throw away after testing, and I had laid my head down for a second.
    I have no idea how they get all the places they do!

    I'm on my third vacuum in two years. I think test strips have a lot to do with it.

    Too funny-- only because it's true!

    I can't figure out how there are so many in places that she doesn't normally test- such as my bedroom or the master bath. My only guess is that they travel there on our clothes or shoes.

    I think they multiply in the dark.... :D

    I was folding CLEAN laundry today and found test strips stuck to the clothes...must have survived the washer AND the dryer!

    My car is littered with them. I even find them on the sidewalk at my son's preschool....from days ago!

    S pulled on a clean sweatshirt the other day and a test strip came flying out. It's crazy.
