Gilbert Dad Solves Hand Washing on the Go

Kids are gross — always playing in dirt and putting things in their mouths. Just think of what’s on those hands!

As a father of four, Gilbert dad Gabe Trevizo knows this too well, but finding the nearest bathroom became too much of a chore and hand sanitizer wasn’t enough. 

“[Hand] sanitizer only works if your hands are already clean,” said Trevizo. “So my kids’ hands always have barriers on them whether it’s dirt or grime, and if I were to put sanitizer on them, it would be a mess.”

Insert lightbulb! A portable foaming soap dispenser that sits right on your water bottle. 

The product named “Suds-2-Go” takes soap and water hand washing on the go. The user removes the bottle cap attachment, fills up the soap container with hand soap and screws it back into its holder.

The soap attachment is separate from the water so it doesn’t compromise the water. 

“It helps us get proper handwashing,” added Trevizo. 

The CDC says washing with soap and water is the best method because hand sanitizer doesn’t kill all bacteria including norovirus. 

Trevizo has started a Kickstarter campaign to help with the product launch in the spring.
