The Purleve hygienic door handle solves the sticky issue of touching public bathroom knobs, which are covered in nasty germs that can cause all kinds of illnesses.
The device replaces door handles and is filled with a roll of thin, plastic sleeves covered in antimicrobial solution.
Each time its used, it automatically replenishes its surface with a clean sleeve to make the handle sanitary after every touch.
Company owner Todd Muderlak likens the device to a condom that protects hands from the disgusting germs people pass along, since one germ can multiply to 16,000 in one hour.
He explains, Its like a new condom every time. Youre touching a door handle thats never been touched. And the antimicrobial is like the spermicide in the condom that kills all the little spermies in your hand.
