Ahwatukee Woman Invents Guard to Protect Against Shopping Cart Germs
An Ahwatukee woman was sick of all the germs on shopping carts, so she invented some protection.
According to the Ahwatukee Foothills News, Jennifer Conroy has developed the Germseal Shopping Cart Liner, a one-of-a-kind product that envelopes almost the entire cart in a self-contained, washable bag made of durable hypoallergenic materials.
“The Germseal Shopping Cart Liner covers all cart surfaces you may come into contact with, creating a barrier between dirty carts and your groceries,” Conroy told the newspaper.
The bag comes with a carrying strap and a zippered pocket for things like grocery lists, a wallet or keys and expands to fit any kind of shopping cart, according to the article.
While Conroy has a full-time job as the owner of a medical transcription company, she’s also been using her Ahwatukee home as the headquarters for Germseal, for which patents are pending, according to the story.
