SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - There will be no more fumbling around looking for hand sanitizer if you are wearing the HandiGuru.
Benjamin Anderson, a Santa Barbara-area innovator and artist, has invented a wearable item that carries a day's supply of sanitizer, sunscreen or bug repellant.
He saw the need and, after four months of research, came up with a solution with the specially designed wearable sanitizer band.
It comes with a special refillable bottle and tip kit.
The HandiGuru was given to 30 members of the Girls Inc. camp in Carpinteria Tuesday morning.
They also had a "hands-on" demonstration.
"We want it to be recyclable and reusable so you can get a bulk hand sanitizer and refill in the bottle that we offer and just keep going to town with it all summer long," Anderson said. "You can use it for sunscreen and hand sanitizer gel."
He says it will be useful for bug repellant too.
The HandiGuru costs $11.95 on HandiGuru.com
For each of the first 2,500 kits sold, HandiGuru will donate one kit to communities in need to help keep them safe during these difficult times.
