Spills and stains are something everyone hates and are potentially dangerous for those who don’t know they are there. Liquids on any smooth or shiny surface can quickly create a hazard and can lead to serious slip and fall injuries. Hot liquids are also a concern, as spilling them on yourself or another person can cause burns.

Unfortunately for those who suffer from Arthritis, Parkinson’s, and other impairments and diseases similar, spills can often happen and can be very tiring to clean up. Tenura cup caps can help to prevent such spills and stains thanks to the complete seal over the top of cups, mugs and cans they offer.

Tenura cup caps come in a pack of two, one measuring 80mm in diameter and the other 60mm. Allowing you to create a seal over almost any container you may be drinking from.

Cups and Mugs (80mm)

Cup caps can be placed over most cups and mugs to create a complete seal over the top preventing liquid from spilling out of the container. This will stop spills and stains dead in their tracks and allow you to drink from a container without the aforementioned spills. The 80mm cup cap can be stretched and moulded over almost any cup for cold or hot drinks, allowing you to use this item in the house or on the go. A small valve in the middle of the material will allow a straw to be placed through. This will let you drink from the container without the chance of a spill. Cup caps can also be used to keep drinks fresher for longer. Cup caps are anti-microbial, meaning no bacteria or fungi can grow or live on the material. A simple application of soap and water is enough to keep Tenura cup caps clean and hygienic. Tenura CupCaps can be especially useful for using with small children, as cups and mugs can be dropped or knocked over easily,

Cans (60mm)

Cans are a great way to get a drink on the go, perfect for a quick lunchtime in work. However, a spill with most fizzy drinks can cause untold damage to a work environment, creating a sticky mess on your desk, or all over your equipment. This can happen a lot for those who suffer from diseases like Parkinsons or those who suffer from hand and arm impairments, and will be irritating to clean up. Luckily, Tenura cup caps can offer a solution! The 60mm cup caps will fit over almost all cans and will provide a strong seal, helping to prevent nasty spills and stains and keep your drink fresher for longer. The seal in the middle of the material allows a straw to be neatly threaded through, allowing you to drink from the can, without the possibility of a nasty spill. Cup caps can be applied around cans easily, and will stretch to conform around the cans shape. Simply stretch the cup cap around the can making sure the material is tightly positioned around the cans top, then smooth down the edges of the cup cap to the sides of the can. Tenura cup caps can be removed just as easily before throwing away an empty can.
