Problems Solved

The Sink Apron is a splashguard that attaches to the front edge of a kitchen sink to protect a user’s clothing while washing dishes. The invention comprises an elongated strip of rubber constructed in a manner that enables it to rest on a sink edge and prevent water from splashing a person. The bottom of the horizontal is flat with two segments protruding downward from the edges in a perpendicular fashion. A longer segment protrudes from the front edge and rests on the inside of the sink. A shorter segment protrudes from the back edge and rests on the exterior of the front lip of the sink. The back segment also extends above the horizontal base, thereby creating a barrier against splashing water. The area between the back extension and the flat base is angled inward to further reduce potential splashing. At each end of the construction there is a side wall. The side walls are triangular and form a diagonal front wall that extends from the top of the back edge to the front of the base. The invention may be approximately 8” high, 4” wide and 18” – 36” long. The device is easily removable, but may also be made in a permanent embodiment. The exact specifications may

Detailed Description & Features
