What exactly is The Clean Cup™?

The Clean Cup™ is a portable, battery-operated, completely self-contained unit that replaces the nasty and highly ineffective 'wash cup' that is so commonly used in today's beer pong play all while adding a 21st century touch to a timeless game.  To use, simply drop your dirty beer pong ball in the top of the unit and push the button.  In less than five seconds you will have a freshly rinsed ball floating on air, ready to get back into the game.  Using our proprietary design, we ensure you never play with dirty beer pong balls again.  The Clean Cup™ is a fun tech product for the beer drinking or game playing enthusiast.

No More Dirty Wash Cup

The Clean Cup™ is built to go anywhere with you, and now you can play with clean balls whenever and wherever you want.  So go ahead, get rid of the old wash cup and grab beer pong's new best friend. 

How The Clean Cup Works

At any point during your beer pong game when you find yourself needing a quick rinse, just drop a dirty ball into the top of The Clean Cup™.

Features

  • One-Button Function:  The Clean Cup™’s automatic wash cycle can be started with the press of one button.  All you do is drop the ball into The Clean Cup™, press the button conveniently located on the top of the unit, and within 5 seconds your ball is back rinsed and ready to go.
  • Portable:  With it’s “Party ­Cup” design and small footprint, The Clean Cup™ will be ready to rinse any place you play: tailgate parties, bars and clubs, frat parties, even your own dining room for those intense family throwdowns!
  • LED Indicator:  The Clean Cup™’s cool LED indicator light lets you know not only when a rinse cycle is under way (Blue) but also when the batteries are getting low (Red) on your Clean Cup™.
  • Filter:  The Clean Cup™ comes with a removable and reusable filter to catch all of those nasties and unwanted chunks that are rinsed off your dirty balls.  Slip the filter in before the night starts, and give it a quick rinse once the party is over.

Why Kickstarter?

Kickstarter is a great platform for The Clean Cup™ for two reasons.  First, we wanted to get The Clean Cup™ in the hands of passionate beer lovers and party people who really appreciate their gadgets.  Before we scale up our product to a wider audience we want to get The Clean Cup™ to people that really hate dirty balls.  Kickstarter allows us to reach consumers with a shared passion for partying, gadgets, and beer pong in a natural way.

Second, we have been able to develop The Clean Cup™ all by ourselves, but we want to share this experience with other passionate people to help us spread the word and become involved with the The Clean Cup™ and its future.  We feel that Kickstarter is an amazing platform for creative, like minded people to really share their ideas and support each other in an effort to create new and amazing things.

Production Schedule

The Origin of Clean Balls (History and Development)

In 2007, Tyler Dobush was completing his engineering degree and created the first prototype of The Clean Cup™ as a college project.  The Clean Cup™ 1.0 was born as a hair dryer, PVC pipe and simple circuit board.  It was only a proof of concept, but the foundation to something great had been laid.

Flash forward to 2013, Tyler came back to the idea of The Clean Cup™.  He saw an opportunity to make a fun product for the beer pong market and fulfill his dream of becoming a professional inventor.  After almost two full years of development filled with many revisions, leaky tanks, fans, ping pong balls, and prototypes, the design is finalized and ready to roll.  Now House Rules is looking to make The Clean Cup™ a dream come true.  Clean Balls For All.

Who is House Rules?

House Rules is a social gaming design company focused on creating state-of-the-art and innovative ways to step up your party game and enhance your recreational lifestyle.  Here at House Rules we love to build, to tinker, to see how far we can push the envelope and exactly how big “outside the box” really can be.  More importantly we love a good party and adding to the fun!  We are extremely excited to share with you our flagship product The Clean Cup™.

Meet The Team

Founder/Inventor/Promoter: Tyler Dobush - By day works for a well drilling and hydraulic tool design company, but by night is an idea generator, gadget tinkerer, and can be found at the shop on any given day of the week.  He loves to put his engineering skills to good use, designing new ways to step up the party.  The Clean Cup™ is just one of the many ideas that he has designed and patented with more on the way!

Visuals: Zach Hallum - Brought on to make the image of The Clean Cup™ stand out and have a visual voice.  Photography, packaging and typefaces are his everyday grind to make The Clean Cup™ look as good as it does.

Risks and challenges

When successfully funded, the project doesn't end...it comes to life.

Fulfilling the rewards all while maintaining our production schedule will be a challenge, but with proper preparation and dedication we are confident that House Rules will make it happen and stay on schedule. We have previously ordered items and samples from our suppliers and have created great working relationships with them.

As with anything, even the best laid plans will change. Things happen that are unexpected on a day to day basis, but that is the "fun" of this business. Taking a new challenge, seeing it as an opportunity, and getting it done. House Rules is ready to bring The Clean Cup™ to life. Let's get this ball rolling.
