Created by De Montfort University’s Product & Furniture Design course graduate Paul Oxley, the Aquavac is an electronic “tea towel” that claims to boost kitchen hygiene and prevent food poisoning. Since most cases of food poisoning are spread via dirty kitchen towels, the student designer developed the idea for a high-tech replacement for kitchen cloths in the guise of a small countertop wet vacuum cleaner.
With all the polymers used to build it being impregnated with anti-bacterial substances, the dishwasher-safe Aquavac allows you to suck spills into the device rather than simply being soaked into the surface. The unit is perfectly hygienic and ensures that all the germs go right into the Aquavac and stay out of your kitchen! Neat idea dude!
