Dirty-Catch / Dirty-Catch


Kitchen sink strainer is very important and useful.
It can prevent kitchen waste from blocking tube.
Normally, when users take the filter out and throw
it away, the kitchen sink strainer might take the users
much time and smudge their hands involuntarily.
Our design thinking is that to design a simple filter
with a light line bounded around the top of the filter
and then leave a rope behind. So that the users can
pull the rope up and throw throw the Kitchen sink
strainer away clean and efficient.
