InventHelp Client's Accessory Allows for More Sanitary Removal and Disposal of Tampons/Menstrual Pads (SAH-688)

Share Article

InventHelp, based in Pittsburgh, is working to submit the Sani-M to appropriate companies for their consideration and possible feedback.

Blood-borne pathogens raise the risk of spreading diseases, so there are many medical precautions and procedures in place to counter this. However, it doesn’t seem as if the handling and disposal of things tainted with menstrual blood are taken as seriously.

"This inspired me to design a simpler, more sanitary way to handle tampons and menstrual pads while also protecting the environment," said an inventor from Sonora, Calif.

He then created a prototype of the Sani-M, an accessory that enables a user to remove and dispose of used tampons and menstrual pads in a more sanitary manner. This helps prevent the spread of blood-borne pathogens in order to avoid the spread of diseases, which promotes convenience, safety and peace of mind. It also eliminates need for flushing the items, reducing sewer and landfill waste.

The original design was submitted to the Sacramento office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers. For more information, write Dept. 13-SAH-688, InventHelp, 217 Ninth Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15222, or call (412) 288-1300 ext. 1368. Learn more about InventHelp's Invention Submission Services at -
