Free Idea # 291 - Invent the shaving foam soap bar

Invent the shaving foam soap bar. After washing their face,
legs, or whatever!, users would simply use the suds still there
to shave, thus what was once two different processes is now
one. The shaving foam soap bar would mean aerosol-free
shaving, so - as well as saving time and money - it would be
good for the environment.

card owners would just need to revise their online entry.

Free Idea # 282 - Shower curtains with a detachable lower section

Manufacture shower curtains with a detachable lower section.
Instead of replacing the whole curtain when the bottom
becomes discolored with rot, mildew, or mold, a horizontal
strip - representing, perhaps, just 10% of the total curtain -
would be removed and replaced. This would reduce waste
and save money.
