Product Idea #25412531 - Submitted

(This is my 29th idea sent in to a company after I have experimented and determined that I lacked the ability to produce and develop the product far enough along to get a patent and the first idea that I didn't get anything but an email from the Company......come on this idea is gold!! Most companies send me gift certificates, products, coupons, personal telephone calls, personal thank-you letter,I have gotten bottles of wine, thank you calls from CEO's..and from P&G of all people an impersonal automated email. It almost makes me want to stop innovating and inventing or at least stop sending ideas to P&G)

Product Idea Submission -

I am wondering if I could submit a product idea to your company

I have been experimenting at home on a limited basis with a solution that goes into the iron instead of or with an amount of water that steams and freshens fabric as you iron. I have wrecked a few irons experimenting and figured maybe I should leave the research to the

I think this product would be great especially if it contained a medium amount of starch so you wouldn't have spray cans and bottles in the way when you iron.

All you have to do is fill the iron with the solution and go.

Hopefully your company would be able to give this idea some consideration.
