Pinch & Tear / article for daily use

Pinch & Tear
Pinch & Tear

In daily life, we always need to pull the tissue roll to the width we want first and use another hand to drag the next piece to slip the tissue roll. It is not only unsanitary but you always need to use both hands to get the tissue you need. This design solves both of the problems. You just need to use one hand with punch movement on your finger, and drag the tissue you punch to the tinny little blade on the side and tear it. That makes going to the bathroom more convenient and easier for everyone.
