    No, not the Large Hadron Collider. Not the F-35. Not the Barrett 82a1.

    My shower walls, glass, floor, and chrome are spotless and brilliant, and I haven't touched them in months. This stuff is magic. $13 at Wal-Mart.

    Most everyday household items would qualify. Paper towels, trash bags, Q-tips, can openers, spray bottles... They are not rocket science, but life would be hell without them.

    Do you just push the button and get out of the way? Always wondered how you wouldn't get any on you?

    Everyday items, Gerber artifact, Keurig coffee maker, wallet.

    The mute button on remotes. It has saved my tv from more than one gunshot.

    Yep- once you push the button, it waits 10-15 seconds before it sprays. It beeps to remind you, and beeps get closer together just before it sprays.
