Think about sanitary issues when drinking canned beverage. Part of the can that touches your mouth are often exposed to unsanitary conditions and that part of the can must be pushed inward in order to drink the beverage. However, many people drink canned beverage without any awareness of health issues. Cans are designed so that they can easily be opened and since cans consist of one material, it is convenient for recycling. Putting in mind these merits and trying not to manipulate the unique design of cans, I thought of a way to keep cans clean by covering the top part of the can with a specially designed tape.
