Research has found that the appearance of women’s apparel helps increase their attractiveness as rated by men and that men care more about physical features in potential opposite-sex mates. However, the effect of sartorial appearance has received little interest from scientists. In a series of studies, the length of women’s shoe heels was examined. A woman confederate wearing black shoes with 0, 5, or 9 cm heels asked men for help in various circumstances. In Study 1, she asked men to respond to a short survey on gender equality. In Study 2, the confederate asked men and women to participate in a survey on local food habit consumption. In Study 3, men and women in the street were observed while walking in back of the female confederate who dropped a glove apparently unaware of her loss. It was found that men’s helping behavior increased as soon as heel length increased. However, heel length had no effect on women’s helping behavior. It was also found that men spontaneously approached women more quickly when they wore high-heeled shoes (Study 4). Change in gait, foot-size judgment, and misattribution of sexiness and sexual intent were used as possible explanations. © 2014, Springer Science+Business Media New York. Source

A cleaning solution obtained from an aqueous solution of alkaline or acid pH which has undergone at least two cleaning and recycling cycles. Each cleaning and recycling cycle includes the successive steps of heating a solution of alkaline or acid pH to a temperature above 50 C., completely cleaning the pipework of equipment fouled with organic deposits using the heated solution, and bringing the solution obtained after the cleaning steps into contact with a clay of at least one of the families selected from smectites, sepiolites, vermiculites and illites. At least one one anionic or cationic flocculating agent is added, followed by precipitation and separation to recover said aqueous solution.
