Protective Cover for Handbags Invented by InventHelp Client (NJD-1223)

Share Article

Based in Pittsburgh, Pa., InventHelp is working to submit the SHIELD to applicable companies for their review.

While some public buildings, like restaurants, provide hooks for hanging purses so they can be kept off the floor, many do not. Fortunately, an inventor from Metuchen, N.J., has the perfect solution for keeping purses that are placed on the ground and other surfaces in public areas from getting dirty or coming in contact with bacteria.

She developed SHIELD to provide a protective barrier between the purse and bacteria left behind by others. As such, it keeps the user safe from germs on various surfaces. It, therefore, promotes sanitary conditions. At the same time, it prolongs the life of expensive handbags. Furthermore, it affords peace of mind that a woman’s handbag will be kept clean. Besides that, it is easy to use, practical and disposable. It is also convenient, effective and affordably priced. In addition, it is lightweight, portable and disposable.

The inventor’s personal experience inspired the idea. “I always worried about my purse getting contaminated by bacteria when I set it down in public areas outside on steps or on the ground as well as interior surfaces like bathroom sinks,” she said. “My daughter suggested using a disposable cover.”

The original design was submitted to the New Jersey office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
