Vanishing Fruitwash Labels [A “Why Didn’t I Think of That?” Invention]

One of my biggest pet peeves is the annoying labels that grocery stores stick on their produce. I get that there needs to be a way to label the items. But they just seem so wasteful and bothersome…and it’s the worst when they are difficult to remove, sometimes even leaving behind a sticky residue!

Enter designer/inventor Scott Amron. His Vanishing Fruitwash Labels are simply ingenius: they “dissolve into an organic, fruit-cleansing produce wash that helps remove wax, pesticides, dirt and bacteria.”

 

That’s right. Just like regular labels, they display PLU (price look-up) codes and can be peeled off…but if they are washed or rubbed with water — they are water-resistant to a degree — they dissolve into an organic produce wash!

Unfortunately, these labels seem to be in the initial stages of production. The good news is that Amron is currently seeking investors via a 10% stake in the Fruitwash Label Intellectual Property (patents). For more information, email support-at-Moq7-dot-com.
