Elegant cup / The cup

Elegant cup
Elegant cup

In daily life, some people will hang up the cup, and when the traditional cup is hung up, the rim of cup is upward. Thus it is easy to accumulate dust and water, which will lead to the breeding of bacteria. Twice washing to cups cannot be avoided every time after using.This design solves the problem in a smart way. It designs its handle of the cup into a particular shape. While the cup was hung up, the cup mouth will be downward according to the principle of gravity, which prevents the dust from deposited and water will drip down along the wall of cups. And all these avoid water wasting and troubles of twice washing.
