When I got home I found clear Dycem at www.pattersonmedical.com but was shocked at the price. However, I splurge on a small roll of clear Dycem which costs $55 + shipping and handling because it is a writing aid I cannot live without. I have pieces of it every where I sit down to take phone messages, pay bills, do crossword puzzles, write reminders on Post-It Notes, etc. I make it last longer by washing it. A small roll (8 inches x 2 yards) lasts almost two years.
I keep a small piece of clear Dycem in my purse (see arrow) to hold credit card slips still when I sign them. As you can see, this dirty piece of Dycem is well used. I also splurge on gel pens that cost $15 a box. Gel pens are more forgiving that ball point pens that must be held at a precise angle to make the ink flow. When I eat at restaurants that have tables with slippery surfaces this small piece of clear Dycem stops my plate from sliding as I cut food. I appreciate not having to whip out a big brightly colored Dycem placemat to announce to everyone in the restaurant that I am disabled.
