Water Absorption Ring / Ring

Water Absorption Ring

On rainy days, when you get home, the rainwater will roll down from the umbrella, getting the floor very wet. To solve this problem, we have designed the Water Absorption Ring. First, you should put the ring on the top of the wet umbrella. Then pull the ring along the umbrella, and the sponge in the ring will fully absorb the rainwater on the surface of the umbrella. After that, take down the ring and press the button on it. The water in the sponge will be squeezed out. And you can recycle the rain to water flowers or store it for other things.
