7 Useful Inventions You Need – Most people are aware of inventions that have changed lives or have changed the course of history. Some of these inventions include the wheel, printing press, steam engine, the airplane, electric lightbulb, telephone, and antibiotics. The list could go on and on. However, there are also some not-so-well-known inventions that may not have changed the world but that are still very useful.
Here are 7 of those useful inventions that you might need now!

1. Herb Scissors

This handy kitchen item is great if you like to use herbs when you cook but don’t like cutting them. Herb scissors contain five blades to ensure they cut quickly and evenly. Along with herbs, these scissors can be used on any delicate food that needs mincing.

2. Sleepbuds

Some people need absolute quiet in order to sleep. For these people, earplugs can help to drown out noise. Sleepbuds are another option. Besides drowning out unwanted noise, sleepbuds deliver relaxing sounds to your ears that help to induce sleep. People who use sleepbuds can choose different audio tracks, like the sounds of waves, to cover up disturbing sounds like snoring or loud neighbors.

3. Sanitizing Wand

Household disinfectants or wipes are necessary items for getting rid of germs. However, sometimes the smell of these disinfectants can be overpowering. If you want an alternative way to rid things of germs, a sanitizing wand is the perfect device. This wand contains Ultraviolet-C light that reduces the number of microscopic germs. Sanitizing wands work on all kinds of household items, such as towels, phones, bedding, light switches, doorknobs, and countertops.

4. Hands-Free Umbrella

The umbrella is a wonderful invention that allows you to stay dry when outdoors in the rain. However, what if you need both hands free when it’s raining out? That’s what a hands-free umbrella is for. This kind of umbrella has a canopy that goes over your head and is worn like a backpack. The canopy goes back down with just the press of a button. Besides staying dry in the rain, the hands-free umbrella also offers protection from the sun.

5. Light-Up Slippers

If you get up in the middle of the night, slipping on a pair of light-up slippers can help you find your way around in the dark. Each slipper contains an LED night lamp that is mounted around the sole. Besides lighting up your path at night, light-up slippers are super comfy and cozy.

6. Shower Thermometer

When the water in the shower is too hot, it can easily scald the skin. When the water is too cold, it makes for a not-so-great shower. A shower thermometer ensures your water is not too hot, not too cold, but just right. A shower thermometer comes in especially handy for kids so that their water doesn’t accidentally get too hot.

7. Couch Armrest Table

Do you lack space in your living room for a coffee table? Or maybe you don’t have enough side tables when guests come. A couch armrest table solves both of these problems. This invention attaches to an armrest and allows you to have your own personal little table.
