#1927: Insectisole

I find that when I travel on public transport I routinely find my lower legs being bitten by fleas -just above the sock-line.

This can’t just affect me, so today’s invention is foam pad which attaches to the instep of one shoe using an elastic strap around the shoe.

This would be completely unobtrusive normally but when one sits on a bus or train, the pad, which would contain tea tree oil, could be slid to the heel area, using the strap, and rubbed gently on the floor.

This would release a little oil and deter even the most determined of parasites.
