I have a soft spot in my heart for entrepreneurs. Growing up, my dad always had an invention up his sleeve that we just knew would make him big. Whether it was 'Groove Juice' that could take a scratch out of anything or coming up with a new use for an old item, it was incredible. He's unbelievably creative!
Yesterday on NBC's Today Show, US Weekly contributor Jill Martin showed everyone how to get rid of dust bunnies on their broom. It is called the Broom Groomer and was created by a community of entrepreneurs who use a website called Quirky to collaborate and share ideas.
As you sweep, you can just 'groom' your broom by using the back rubber teeth to clean off your broom. Genius!
And at only $12.99, you can't beat it!
The other invention that I find completely functional is the Ventu Strain & Serve. I love this invention... primarily because it means I can wash less dishes!
This bowl allows you to prep, strain, serve, and store your food all in one sleek and modern dish. All you have to do is push one of the handles down, and it switches the bottom of the bowl to a strainer. So smart! The Ventu costs $49.99.
Hat's off to our everyday inventors... including my favorite inventor, my dad!
p.s. Quirky has no idea who I am and in no way suggested I write this post. I just happen to really like new ideas and clever inventions.
