About

I am Hoa Dang, inventor and former owner of two Tea & Coffee stores in Texas. This is my story about the truth inside disposable cups and straws.

I'm HoaDang.
I'm HoaDang.

Usually, all coffee shops or fast food outlets, they all print their brands on disposable cups, I'm no exception. However, no printing house can print in small quantities, if so, the price would be quite high. That's why I have to outsource a large amount of printing in China, so much so that I have to rent a warehouse for storage.

Our storage for each Store can be used up to several months. After a few months of business, my reserve storage of cups number was gone, forcing me to go to the warehouse to get more cups for the store.  

The warehouse was the hotbed of insects and dirt

I do not believe my eyes when the store door pulled up... OMG, a dead mouse, a few cockroaches, spider webs and light dust coating over the Disposable Cup containers. I stopped and started thinking, I shuddered and understood that the warehouse was the hotbed of insects and dirt. From that day on, I felt responsible for this unintentional discovery, and was even more anxious to know that every year the Americans use 25 billion disposable cups, but no one has ever cleaned the cup not even once before use.

 The obsession is getting  because every day I ask myself, Is the Cup available to contain drinks for guests? I was only afraid for one day, a some guest came to my shop and asked, is this cup clean? If you are me, how do you respond? However, no guest asked me that question. Why ?

Because , they believe in salespeople, salespeople believe in shopkeepers, shop owners believe in production-facilities who has never claimed  that it is ready to drink .

Is this cup clean, Sir ?
Is this cup clean, Sir ?

Therefore, Americans in particular and people all over the world generally, everyday use of disposable Cups without knowing that the risks are always hidden inside a Disposable Cups. 

 I tried to find the answer by going to the internet to search for a disposable Cups washing machine to improve the safety for customers, but that keyword didn’t seem to be popular.

I continued to be find out more and look into the production process disposable cups. I looked it up online and found several videos about the production and I came to a conclusion that there has not been a single step of cleaning the cup and the whole process usually takes place in a dirty environment. On top of that, they have to take the cups out the original packaging for printing and dry them outside. All things considered, that would beg the question: Who can guarantee that the cup is 100% clean ? Neither the production facility nor the people who serve the drink.  

Furthermore, in the course of research, I discovered that micro plastic particles are now found in human feces up to 5%. There is also evidence that microplastics in food come from indoor dust. A recent study estimated that we could get an annual dose of almost 70,000 microplastics from the dust that settles on to our dinner – and that is only one of our daily meals.

I was even more worried when scientists around the world said that the percentage of micro plastic particles in air and dirt is quite high, but the solution to solve this problem is not yet available. I felt like I needed to do something and I started to experiment with washing the Disposable Cups in a Traditional way. After washing, the cup would become worse, it's not dry and clean as expected and it would be a waste of time.

One morning, I woke up into the kitchen and poured a drink. While holding the cup, the images of the cup being stored in a dirty warehouse keep coming back to me, inside my head. Instinctively, I put the glass in mouth and blow a strong blow hoping that it will take away all the dirt, but I didn't stop there, I added another two blows, hoping that the cup would be completely clean, for use.

The idea came from here, I suddenly thought, why we don't use a force of compressed air that is strong enough to expel the dirt like a human blow. Finally, I came up with an idea of a machine that will finally come to life. When putting the Cup into the machine, the system will create a negative charge to attract positive charge objects, while using UV light to kill bacteria, then combine with a pneumatic force to push the Cup out of the machine, then the dirt.

Rapid end the process of rinsing the cup without water use and soap . 



 Smart Cup Cleaner ( disposable cups ) 

Background

Many food establishments from fast food restaurants to coffee and milk tea drink bars are suing disposable cups and straws, made from foam, paper or plastics. The products are often made overseas, shipped, and stored for a long time before being used by consumers. During these processes, these items are rarely, if ever, got cleaned. Harmful bacteria and other particles can stick to the inside wall of these items and can be harmful or unsafe to consumers.

Coffee shop staff clean the disposable cup before use .The SCC machine can be implemented easily in house or on public place.

Field of the invention

The present invention relates to a machine that clean disposable cups and straw quickly and effectively from harmful bacteria and dirt particles before being used by consumers in food establishments .

There is an electrical switch to turn off or turn on the machine when not in use on the back of the SCC.

How it works?

The present invention comprises a novel approach of using a simple a machine to clean up disposable cups and straw. Consumers are ensured that before being used these cups and straws are cleaned and safe of dangerous bacteria and unhealthy particles that they consumed into their body.

It has been known that negative ion will be attached to dirt particles which are positively charged. It has also been known that Ultraviolet Light (UV) will kill off harmful bacteria. The system uses a negative ion generator and high-pressure air stream to clean up the items of dirt particles, and Ultraviolet light (UV) to kill off harmful bacteria. It has the facility that propose ease of use, quick and convenience for consumers.

Risks and challenges

Technical difficulties for a new product are inevitable. However, me and my team have solved these difficult problems for 2 years of research and forming prototypes. Therefore, when I announced that I had completed the prototype, it means that the difficulties didn't exist until now. What I want to tell you is, our team invented, designed and built the code for Smart Cleaner Cups, so I and my colleagues are confident to master the technology for production series.
However, the only thing that I am interested in is how to make people understand that, Disposable Cups are not readily clean to contain drinks the way people have been doing for the past few decades. Take action, propagate and share it for better public health.
