Socks-in-a-Can

Socks are sprayed on from a can.

With the right formulation of material, a quick drying spray from an aerosol can could be sprayed on your feet each morning and dry to a comfortable pair of socks that would last the whole day and could be peeled off and discarded. No more laundry. Comes in different colors. Great to take on trips. Saves space. Eliminates sorting and matching. Argyle perhaps?

(?) How about some nice, warm, paraffin socks? http://best-priced-...ath2.html?E+scstore
Stick your feet in one of these and ease aches and pains while you're making your "socks".

       I'd imagine it'd be uncomfortable to peel those socks off for anyone with any amount of hair on their feet. Yikes!

       Well, I like the instant knitting idea, I have been working so hard on christmas gifts, I can't feel my fingers anymore.

       A great pair of knits.   

       [Raven] I think this sort of thing has been done before - Olivia Newton-John, Grease.

       Good find, DeGroof. I knew I'd seen this somewhere before...

       <3 this idea. The sock would be a perfect fit and have no gaps so it would keep stuff away from your foot much better than a normal sock.   

       The material would need to be really flexible and hug the foot though. Otherwise it would come away if you flexed your foot too much.   

       Only downside is that you’d probably go through a lot of cans. So you could have a vat of the stuff that you could just dip your feet in and then it would dry really quickly just for home. And then keep a couple of cans for out-and-about.

       You'd need a rubber band to hold them onto your lower leg, unless you can somehow spray elastic. I still think this is a really cool idea!

       William Gibson All Tomorrow's Parties - "...as the Suit crawls out beneath the melon-tinted blanket, that the man's ankles are painted, in imitation of black socks, with something resembling asphalt."   

       But, if only he had spray on socks...
