Mother develops product that addresses the problem of drooling

About the solution

Bibs weren’t solving anything, and she knew that older children and adults with disabilities wouldn’t want to wear bibs anyway. So she got to work, researching different types of fabrics and the processes that she could use to put together garments that were essentially their own bibs, but better. Called DribbleDry, her clothing line is absorbent, minimizes the odor and bacteria left behind by saliva, and just as importantly, looks like regular clothing.

The antibacterial fabric is attractive and will hold up to a day’s worth of drool before it becomes saturated and needs to be washed. She has patented her fabrics and has already won an award for innovation from the Santander Enterprise Challenge. Hopefully her business will continue to attract buyers and investors as there is certainly a need for this type of clothing, for everyone from babies to those with cerebral palsy to the elderly.
