    I have an invention idea my product is a small handheld machine with variable speeds a flat bottom with a round top comfortable grip also waterproof and rechargeable battery operated with a storage bag. It could have 3 replaceable heads a sander head for sanding the feet with replaceable sanding pads. Also, scrubbing head with soft brushes for the face, back, and feet and also a head with a soft pad to massage the body like the back, shoulders, legs feet. With the replaceable pads this product could be used for personal and at the professional level (Salons) It would meet the Health Department Codes by using replaceable pads. I use a industrial tool to sand my feet. I have read reviews that women and men also use a industrial tool too and pay for services weekly or monthly to have this done. I feel this would be a safer product and would sell well in the beauty and nail industries with a unique design, style, and color. I believe I can achieve my goal in life to helping others and make like easier. I want to take my idea to get it created and patented and bring it to the marketing level. I believe my invention will be successful and could be priced affordable for all. I feel this product would sell well at these stores: Wal-Mart Target, Bed Bath and Beyond, Sally’s
