Pune, November 18 2020: The Covid lockdown – now into its ninth month – has unleashed creativity in many unusual ways, many to help protect onself against the dread virus. One elegant but very useful idea has been transformed into a compelling product by serial entrepreneur Rohit Warrer, founder -director of Pune based Warrier Safe Shields.
This is a handy attachment that snaps on to a drinking glass or cup and helps you sip the contents without putting mouth to the rim… a very important consideration if you are forced to drink in a restaurant or hotel these days.
The Sippline is a light plastic-like shield that clips on to glass or cup and is made from food grade material. It is heat resistant and dishswasher-safe and comes in sealed pouch. It clips on fairly easlly to most drinking glassed and ceramic cups – but may not work with thick- walled mugs.
The idea is for one to carry a Sippline when eating out and using it whenever one is forced to us a glass supplied by the establishment. It is advisable that only one person uses a Sippline.
The Sippline website is not very helpful when it comes to buying the product or pointing you at a seller. In fact it asks you to fill a form! However we found it at Amazon where it sells in packs of 5 for Rs 288. That works out at less than Rs 60 a piece – well worth the price for the protection it provides. Smaller or larger quantities can be purchased from the main Warrier website.
