Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) August 20, 2013
Do you dread going into public restrooms and having to touch all of the unsanitary surfaces in there? Tired of wadding up paper towels or toilet paper to keep from having to actually touch anything? In order to solve this problem, an inventor from Norfolk, Vir., created a prototype for the Lifty Tips Keep the Germs Away.
The accessory provides a sanitary way to lift a toilet seat. The invention prevents the user from coming into physical contact with the toilet seat, which reduces his or her contact with germs to stop the spread of disease. The unit also eliminates the need to touch other surfaces, like the flush handle, sink handles, doorknob, etc. Additionally, the accessory features a green design.
The inventor's personal experience inspired the idea. "I was tired of there being no paper towels or toilet paper when I stopped at gas stations or public restrooms," he said. "I did not want to have to touch any unsanitary surfaces, so I invented an accessory to keep myself from having to do so."
The original design was submitted to the Virginia Beach office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
