The challenge was to design an innovative Bucket to allow the user to keep their hands free of water/unhygienic contents. To offer the user a simple, faster and more hygienic solution to removing items from used or chemically laden water without having to touch it.
To design a Strainer Bucket with a interlocking mechanism to allow the strainer to sit in an elevated position above the Bucket. To allow the user to soak, separate and drain. The end result would be fast, effective and offer a more hygienic approach to soaking. An external plug was added to assist with draining the contents of the bucket and the option of water conservation and recycling.
Strucket supports sustainable living, encouraging parents to use modern cloth nappies and reusable wipes offering a simple, effective and user friendly approach to cleaning, used as a dry pail or soaking device. Strucket’s positive impact on the environment goes from birth to beyond, enabling parents and the elderly to have a positive and supportive stance on incontinence issues. Manufactured from Polypropylene it is 100% recyclable, achieving the desired function with minimum parts through good design practices, minimal water use through encouraging bucket use versus multiple rinses in the washing machine and effective stack height to decrease storage and transport space.
The Strucket strainer’s base is concaved to allow for dirt particles to flow through and sit in the base on the strucket, separating it from the contents of the strainer.
