The April 2011 Reader's Digest has an article on inventors and their inventions. One featured invention is a combination of a baby onesie and a dust mop. Dress your baby in this outfit, let them crawl around the floor, and cleaning takes care of itself.
Not only has the product been wildly popular with parents, it's also inspired a significant increase in applications to adoption agencies. There's been more demand than supply of adoptable babies for many years, but this new wave of applications is swamping adoption agency staffs across the nation.
We should always be wary of causality claims based on statistical association, but this one looks real. Once the Kolt Agency in Chicago noticed the increase in applications they added a survey to their adoption applications asking the applicants about their motivation to pursue adoption.
Although the entire data set has not been released yet, the response from Biff and Betty Hathaway certainly supports a causal link between baby clothing/dust mops and adoption interest: "We never wanted kids because pregnancy seemed like a hassle and we thought babies would mess up our house. But with these new baby dust mops, having a couple of kids around could actually make our house cleaner. If they won't let us adopt, maybe we'll just volunteer to babysit for some of our friends."
