Mother and son launch ‘wine condoms’
22nd January, 2014 by Lauren Eads
A mother and son duo have come up with a novel way to reseal a wine bottle – with a condom.
Described as “the ultimate protection for wine lovers”, the Wine Condom has been designed by Mitchell Strahan and his mother as a way of easily resealing a bottle of wine and no doubt sparking some interesting conversation.
Each disposable “condom”, developed by a rubber company specialising in food, is adaptable and can be used on any bottle.
Writing on their Kickstarter page Strahan said the invention sits flush with a wine bottle eliminating the “Pain-In-The-Ass-Leans-To-The-Side-Which-Never-Quite-Fits-In-The-Refrigerator-Syndrome” caused by regular bottle stops adding that they are both “convenient, disposable, and hilarious.”
The entrepreneurs have already raised $1,255 of their $7,500 target having set up the venture on Kickstarter in a bid to attract backers.
