They say necessity is the mother of invention. For one Pierre Part woman, being able to give her parent's a hug is such a necessity, she's invented a way to do it safely.

Kathy Alleman came up with the idea for what she calls a "Hug Curtain". The "Hug Curtain" is simply a clear shower curtain, but for her and her loving family, it's much more than just a shower curtain. reports that Alleman washes, disinfects and dries the "Hug Curtain" after each use.

Alleman tells -

“When ya mom n dad with tears in their eyes say 'I don’t know how much longer we can go without hugging our kids' you become desperate enough to invent the HUG ME CURTAIN! Cloroxed n sprayed ready for the next hugs❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️”.

Watch how excited she and her parents get to finally hug each other!
