yeah, that's it. When you have an itch in a place you can not reach - and no one is there to lend a hand, what do you do? I have an itch under my shoulder blade and close to the spine - I can not get at it and everyone else is asleep.... besides they all give up way to quickly, just when I am really starting to enjoy the scratch. I do not have a back scratcher device with the little hand on it - do you? do these work well? I have used coat hangers and scissors and have rubbed up and down on the corner of a wall or door frame (like a bear on a tree) I guess this method gives the best exercise anyhow. what do you use/do?

LOL i've done the bear scratch.. i have a little back scratcher stick, though my black cat will lend a paw if you tap your back (he has no claws due to foot infection before i owned him). he just piddy paws at you.

Most of times i ask somebody to scratch.If nobody is there i just use door of my bedroom as a scratcher.I even used tree as a scratcher some where in park.I think good to be a gymnastic to reach those parts.

tree bark works great, but then you run the risk of getting those little buggies on you that will bite your back and um make you ITCH again ;)

Ah, yes, I know the feeling! I have a wooden ruler at my desk and that is what I resort to when there's nobody available to scratch the itch and I can't reach it. Actually, I get an extra inch that I sometimes need - this is a 13-inch ruler that we got from a real estate company who goes to "extra lengths to serve you." Don't think backscratching was what they had in mind, but it works for me!

What a perfect discussion for me to find. I currently have an allergic reaction (or so I am thinking) to something in my new bra! My back has rows of ITCHY bumbps right along the bra line. I am home alone at present (everyone has gone for last minute Christmas items) and I just used the pasta grabber from the kitchen to scratch my back!! Yeah, disgusting I know, but I was desperate! At least I put it in the dishwasher when I was finished using it for a scratcher! I would give anything for one of those devices with the little hand on it!

The corner of the wall i find works the best. There is allways one around when you need it.

Well, I usually use the door frame like you do. I do have some back scratcher before but somehow it was lost. It was made of bamboo. I missed it though. So as of now, when there is no one to help, the good old door frame is always there.

Well, I usually used some scratcher device since my father had that but if that is not available I will used ruler or a hanger to scratched it for me.. But most of the time, I'll asked someone to scratched it for me like my mother or my father.. Sometimes, my niece..
