DryBrella / Drying umbrella


If we HANG it like SHIRTS ? Then it will DRY EFFICIENTLY !
If you store your umbrella when it wet, It might be smelly and life time is usually shorter than you expected. People open their umbrellas to dry and put it down everywhere. They occupy lots of space.
You can store your umbrellas by folding like 2D, the most effective structure to dry!
You just need to follow 4 steps;
1. Silica-cap is covering the frames
2. Pull the silica-cap off
3. Now you can take frame off
4. Your umbrella will be 2D shape!
