    People who do home dying from local plant sources have already done tons of experimentation on this. Check out some spinner/dyer forums.

    In analyzing the above, you need to figure out what sort of equipment you would need. Equipment that needs to be reliable.

    You would also have to worry about what samples you would need. Whether variability of the sample would be important.

    Some of your hypotheticals require you to define your terms. Water absorption, noise levels, effective, etc.

    In addition, you would need different statistical tests to decide whether there is an effect or not. Of your list I see a clear winner. Subjects are readily available, but sex and age might have to be considered. The units of measurement and how to measure them are easily found.

    From the above, for me, there is only one experiment that jumps out and can be done, say, easily with a small sample of people, with little equipment, in a short period of time, can easily produce a figure, and that simple statistics can be used not only to show the results but test that they differ from random.
