(Dan T) Hopes to Clean Up with Rub-A-Dub Scrub
Dan T. had never invented anything in his life or even tried to. Then one day he was taking a bath and began thinking about how difficult it must be for a physically challenged person to clean between their toes or even clean their feet at all. "I started thinking, 'Wow, this could be difficult if a person had, say arthritis or some other physical ailment that limited their ability to stretch and extend themselves," the 48-year-old family man recalled. "So I got to thinking of something that I could invent that would solve the problem." The result is the "Rub-A-Dub-Scrub," a unique contraption that could eventually be profitable.
Currently, the Invent-Tech Co. is seeking a manufacturer for this potentially handy gizmo which could go into mass production within a year. Exactly how does it work? What does it look like? How did he make it? What exactly does it do? We can't answer any of those questions here because of the need for secrecy to prevail until the product is manufactured and marketed. What can be reported is that the "Rub-A-Dub-Scrub" seems to have the potential to change the lives of millions of meticulously well groomed but physically handicapped people forever. "The Invent-Tech people have done a lot of work to get us to this point," Dan said. "They have a lot of confidence that this product is going to do well. For my part, I just hope it will be a product that will help a lot of people." Ban is a 1974 High School graduate who loved Sports as a youngster and still does today.
After leaving school, he worked at a number of jobs including doing construction work and toiling as a driving instructor before landing his current job as a Tops Warehouse driver some 15 years ago. "After I started thinking about the invention, I talked to my mother about it and she said it would be a very good idea, especially for older people," Dan recalled. "I also talked to my brother John about how we could best market it." Eventually, they approached Invent-Tech, whose executives liked the idea and began the process of conducting a patent search. Once that was done, the next step was to find a manufacturer, a procedure which is ongoing at this time. In the meantime, Dan is still going to work a Tops every day and still spends much of the rest of his time with his wife of 15 years, Mary and their two children, Matt, 14, and Ryan, 11. "All of us are very excited about the 'Rub-A-Dub-Scrub' and are really hoping that it is going to be an invention which will help a lot of people and, of course, make us some money too," said Dan. "We don't know what's going to happen for sure. But, if we do get rich in a couple of years, give us a call. We'll invite you to a pool party!"
