CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - As we close out 2009, I decided to choose my favorite product of the year as featured on Does it Work Wednesday and also look back at some of the worst.

My favorite: (drum roll please....) Windshield Wonder.  It's $10 and surprised me that it worked. It helps you clean your car's dashboard by reaching into the crevices that are so hard to get to. The micro fiber cloth doesn't even require a solution--just tap water. It worked beautifully, and I bought one for myself and as gifts.  You can check it out here to see it in action.

As for the worst products of the year, I'd say don't buy Wrecking Balm Tattoo Remover, Jupiter Jack, EZ Combs, Instant Egg Peeler or Point 'n' Paint. To see a recap of these failing products, check out the video on the right.

Remember to email me lkeith@kfvs12.com your requests of products you want me to test and to volunteer to be a tester. I "Try it Before you Buy It" on Does it Work Wednesday. Happy New Year!
