Unsinkable straw / straw

Unsinkable straw
Unsinkable straw

When we use a straw to drink beverages, it usually goes downward the bottle and we have to pick it up by fingers. This will cause the danger of germ infection from the fingers to mouth. To reduce the risk, this straw is designed to be floating on the beverage within the bottle. The specific tube structure provides a function of buoyancy to keep the straw floating on the beverage so that the drinker can use it conveniently.
