Yes, there is a trick to these mittts! They're original design that works with your hand makes them a treat to use when retrieving hot items from a microwave.
There is no trick about where the money from your purchase goes. These mitts and have been donated to A Cause for Crafting (like all the items in our Etsy store) and the money goes to charity. In this case funds from your purchase go to the Saint Vincent de paul Society which is dedicated to helping those in need.
Rory knows to grab her micro-mitts when serving her sister Selena, a dish that's been heated in the microwave - no burned fingers for her. Rory likes the way they fit around a small bowl and she is confidant that the non-slip tips will keep the bowl from sliding away from her. Rory likes the blue print on these mitts, but soon we will have several new colors to choose from.
If you answered "yes," then you need these mitts. Sometimes it's the little things that make life easier - the binder clip, packaging tape, parchment paper, sticky notes, and sippy cups with valves. You probably have your own list of useful things that you love. We think that after you use these little mitts that they will be added to your list of indispensable items.
These mitts were designed to be small and provide dexterity. The knit pouches keep the mitt on your finger and the non-slip tips keep the plate or cup or whatever you are handling from getting away from you. I grab mine whenever I'm removing a hot item from the microwave oven.
We have two colors (the brown shown here and a paw print pattern) currently available at our Etsy shop: CauseforCrafting (all one word) but more will be posted soon.
Best yet your purchase helps a good cause!
