Decontaminated Thirst Quencher

I had a roommate who was a Coke fiend, no not the white powdery kind – the addictive pop kind. She needed to drink 2 cans a day. Watching her prepare her favorite drink was  an exercise in monotonous observation. She’d wipe the condensation off the can, then run the top under hot water to kill any festering bacteria. That technically doesn’t work but it gave her peace of mind. The Cole Cleaner was made for people like her.

The device uses UV radiation to disinfect any tin drink. It takes 1 to 5 minutes (not sure why the huge time gap) 1 to 5 seconds and when the purple LED lights up, you’re good to go.

    Got to wonder… why?
    Save yourself the effort of cleaning every speck of dust off the can, or even UV nuking it with a machine… just open it, and pour it in a glass!!!
    Some solutions don’t need to be designed! :)

      And yet they're designed anyway. Because this is a design website. Where people submit designs. And designs get posted. Because they're designs.
      If you have a better idea for this site, let us know, huh?

    your friend is a weirdo,why do you need to clean the top?

    • Gwenny says:

      You need to clean the top because between the vermin that run through the warehouses and the dirt that gets on the tops from stacking them together, the tops are fairly filthy. If you are fine with putting your mouth on something that could be covered with rat footprints and pee, then you are braver than me. I always at least wipe off the top and often just pour it into a cup.

      Oh, and if you are one of those folks who wears clothes right off the rack without washing them when you buy them, message me and I’ll tell you what I saw in the two years I worked in a sewing factory.

        Let me guess — you'd never dream of eating, say blueberries plucked directly from the bush in the forest. Who -knows- who peed in the general viscinity !

    They’re designed anyway, but not really worth designing! How many paint pot opening tools do you see in the market? Good design takes into account the function and “need” for the end product… designing worthless products with no potential market is an incredible waste of time and effort!
    I agree with Rob… pour the drink in a glass and solve the “problem”!
