I don't even know where to begin with these tweezers. They are beyond amazing! Before I got a pair of these classic Tweezerman tweezers, I tried so many different brands of tweezers that just never did the job well. I would try to pluck eyebrow hairs, and they just wouldn't grab on tight enough and the hair would just slip right through the tweezers and still be there after ten attempts to pluck it before I just gave up. I finally gave in and decided to splurge on a pair of these tweezers early on in high school, which was about 9 years ago now. And I still have that same pair. And they are still perfect 9 years later. The logo is all rubbed off the sides now, but they still work just like they did the day I got them. I use these tweezers for a hundred different things. Whether it be the many beauty reasons I use them or just everyday around the house kind of things where I need a tight little grip on something (like taking off plastic packaging that's too tight to use my nails to get a hold of), they come in handy daily. And yes, I do clean them when I use them for things other than touching up my eyebrows. I loved them so much and used them so much that I finally decided to buy the mini version to keep in my purse cause I always find myself on the go wishing I had my tweezers in my bag for something! I can't imagine using any other tweezers now. I know for a fact that I will be purchasing them again in the future. DEFINITELY worth the money. I would even spend twice this much for this pair of tweezers if I had to. Definitely recommend to everyone!!
