Part One General Description of the Invention This physical drink shaker is comprised of five significant pieces that all contribute to improved mixing qualities, ease of transportation, and simplicity in the cleaning process. The drink top includes a rubber seal around the bottom that allows for suction and increased seal which acts as a moderator to not permit drink contents to leak. It also has a simplistic, wide spout that screws on to yet again protect against leaks and increases the amount of space for the drink shaker’s contents to be released. The next piece is an insert mixing device that is constructed as a fan with angled blades to assist in the breaking up of the content to allow for the proper mixing of ingredients.

At that point, I had found the culprits and began disposing of them properly. It was when I was attempting to clean out the inside of this shaker, which was a difficult task considering the contents were caked to the bottom that I got frustrated. This frustration spawned the idea of a protein shaker that would be easier to clean quickly so the protein mix wouldn’t sit at the bottom and build up causing uncalled for smells. From this I began brainstorming reasonable ways in which it would be easy to fit your hand in the container to clean and break down the particles stuck to the bottom. I realized that soaking the container in hot water would be appropriate, but then thought about how this needed to be a quick process for people who use these protein shakers on the go. I have seen many students on campus that carry around these shakers to and from class as well as before work outs at the gym. This being said, I thought it would also be important for a new and improved shaker to not only
