In 1956, the mother of Michael Nesmith from The Monkees invented the first correction fluid in her kitchen. As a typist she found she was able to correct mistakes with tempera paint she mixed in a kitchen blender. She named this prototype “Mistake Out” and produced small batches at home for her co-workers. After being fired from her job in 1958, she devoted her time to Mistake Out and eventually offered to sell the rights to IBM, who declined. By 1968, the now-renamed Liquid Paper was profitable and in 1979 the company was sold to Gillette for close to $50M.
