@rixx now if there only was a way to not throw away my trousers every night...
@rixx "Here's an overly complicated vastly more expensive version of an already existing economic solution" should be pre-filled in the kickstarter submission form for setting up a campaign
@lastfuture Drinking out of bottles is annoying, so we invented a bottle where you can take off the *entire* top part, for a more pleasant drinking and mixing experience!
@lastfuture when basically nobody uses the existing alternative, then it seems pretty reasonable to "reinvent" it. i think it's kinda clever, certainly better then a pair of tictac boxes.
@nursemchurt suggested a silicone coin purse which seems like a pretty good idea. gotta look of for ones with two compartments..
@rixx And it looks like it's plastic
"doesn't know how to use a washing machine"
i wonder how you think these are supposed to be used.. 🤔
@rixx Oh god, and they're in Copenhagen too
but THAT hankie comes with a super fancy 3D printed carrying case!
If I back it at the $100 tier do I get a t-shirt, too?
I do have one of that company's silicone swab sets, having now used the for the past six weeks, and no longer buying disposable cotton swabs.
As a textile person, I'm not going for this. I already possess washable/reusable cloth handkerchiefs.
@rixx oh cool i can use this to clean up when my juicero spills
@rixx there's an actual reason why we stopped using these...
@rixx OK but I unironically want the silicone hankerchief holder with the separate pocket for snotty hankerchiefs. It looks a lot more sanitary than just shoving snoot folded inside a hankerchiefs back in my pocket. And when I have a cold I'm going to want to travel with more than one hankercheif.
I have to give them credit for that part. Unless silicone hanky holders already exist in which case where so I can buy one?
@bunnyjane Not sure why they need to be silicone, but if you want a small silicone bag: those exist. I typically have a small fabric one with me, which I like more, it's cheaper to make, and easy to wash.
@rixx I looked at their Kickstarter, and on there they make it clear that the handkerchief box is their actual product. They're not claiming to have invented the handkerchief.
I'm going to see if I can find a similar silicone box already for sale (or make one at home). Turns out there isn't much of a barrier between clean and dirty in their special hanky holder anyway.
The reason for silicone over cloth is that cloth is porous and silicone isn't. Germs go right through cloth.
@rixx I wonder how the production and disposal of paper tissues compares to the production and washing of these.
Reusable is not necessarily better for the environment.
@rixx Oh no, the Jatravartids were right all along! The Coming of the Great White Handkerchief is upon us!
@rixx tragically hilarious
@rixx Praise be! Save us from Corona!
@rixx And also the pocket!
