MY "AHA" MOMENT
I had always wanted to come up with a way to hold an empty bottle or container upside down in order to let gravity drain the residual product out of the container before recycling or discarding it. I was tired of wasting a perfectly good product just because it was stuck to the sides or bottom of the container it came in.
THE BIG IDEA
Whenever you come to the last of a product in a container, whether it be ketchup, shampoo, motor oil, etc., you end up throwing away some of the product because it's stuck to the sides or bottom of the container. The device I designed holds the empty container inverted allowing gravity to help the last bit of product drip into a container of choice so it's not wasted. It can hold a wide selection of sizes and shapes of containers in locations ranging from the refrigerator to the garage. It eliminates the need to dilute the product or shake and pound the container in a futile attempt to get every last penny's worth of product.
WHY MY IDEA IS BETTER THAN THE REST
My device is superior to the handful of those that are already on the market in multiple ways. My device is "Green", in that it is made of about 99% natural and renewable materials. Instead of being product specific it has the ability to hold a wide variety of bottles or containers, no matter the size of the opening. It is aesthetically customizable to match the surroundings it's used in, along with being a simple and easy to use design.
THE SKY'S THE LIMIT
