Paint stripper :)

The Sabbath day can be sublime
But this is what happens every time
we strip the tape off the switch to the bathroom light
after Havdalah on a Saturday night

The same with the kitchen and our bedroom, too
Well, just one stripped spot wouldn't do :)

It can be hard on the paint job when you're a Jew

Hay, check out the antidote,
just in time for Shavuot!

For the record, these switch protectors have magnets on the back--they just magnetize themselves to the heads of the nails that fasten the switchplates to the wall. Perfect for a low-tech klutz [clumsy person] like me. :)

some kosher grocery stores sell metal snap-on covers for teh light swicthes. the snaps are held in place by the same screws that hold teh switch-plate on, and then you snap the switch-cover on for shabbat.

Thanks for the tip. We'll have to look for a store that sells those.
