You would have heard of Antimacassars, Max?  Also handy things to have around, though you don't see too many macassars around these days....

Good idea, but I barely have time to make a pot of coffee these days (sad face)

@Bellhop: The "Jinx Remover Spray" is getting a little old at this point too. It's been a common gift shop item for a long time.

I still think I'd like a rack of say 10 smallish spray cans with all the different labels on as discussed in earlier comments.

@Bellhop: I've often thought that there might be some off-label use for "Anti Monkey Butt Powder" (a legitimate product).

Seriously? Dare I ask what it's used for?

My mother used to work in a doctor's office with a British woman, a WWII "war bride". She always had one handy. It was the first that I had seen a Round Tuitt. That was in the 1970s. The "Jinx Remover Spray" is getting a little old at this point too. It's been a common gift shop item for a long time.

@Bellhop: Everyone should have plenty of "Round Tuitts" in their desk drawer...

Arrgh -- that old chestnut. It's like the "Be alert... the world needs more lerts!" :-)

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
