Auto-Sock Printer Friendly Version
While water skiing I tore my left hamstring. It takes a long time to heal, and putting on a sock in a conventional way is impossible. I use a round plastic food container that has a circumference slightly larger than the width of my foot. I stretch the sock opening so that it is supported and held open by the neck of the container. I then place it on the floor, opening towards the ceiling. Once 25% of my foot is shoved through the opening, the sock is released and collapses onto my foot. I am then able to use cooking tongs to reach the sock and pull it further towards the ankle, so that I can eventually reach it with my hands and fully pull it on.
I am certain there are a number of individuals who for various reasons can't bend far enough to put on socks, and having an assistant around all the time is impractical. Or absolutely dangerous, when she is still sound asleep and extremely adept at remembering the precise words she used reminding you not to even try skiing, especially after you had enjoyed great quantities of the fermented spring water of the Rockies and you exited the boat with a back flip shouting "y'all watch this!".
With a little creative refinement, like a more ergonomic receptacle than Tupperware, and a better grasping device than hot dog tongs, this idea could be very useful to those who cannot touch their toes and wish to avoid the hassle and expense of a personal assistant regardless of their motivation (although I would suspect mothers would be more sympathetic than wives). I suspect an extension device that requires little or no bending over would even be met with greater enthusiasm. Unlike Tupperware and frankfurter grabbers, this device does not need to be dishwasher proof.

Coffee Extract Deodorant/Deodorizer Printer Friendly Version
Coffee is a natural deodorizer used to cover up and eliminate smells. It is used to clear olfactory or clear your nose of smells when having a clear scent up your nose is necessary like the perfume makers use it for. It is also used to pack illegal substances like marajuana and cocaine because the search dogs can't smell the drugs when the coffee is packed around the drugs. Also, in the morning when your coffee pot is turned on, have you noticed you can't seem to smell anything but fresh coffee?
Coffee should be concentrated and used in underarm deodorant or in spray form to deodorize any room or surface. It will deodorize and neutralize all things that smell leaving nothing but fresh air behind. Since it is an extract, the smell of coffee itself will dissapear fast but so will all the bad smells.

Instant Clothing Printer Friendly Version
I think that someone should design a type of cloth that its cut edges stick together without a seam. With this invention, anyone could make their own clothes exactly how they want them without taking the time to sew or learn how.
Also, you could easily alter these clothes to fit the latest fashion.
