Necessity is the mother of invention, said Plato*.

We’re thrilled that Gosili, a producer of reusable silicone cups, lids, sandwich bags, straws and more, added this item to their drinkware line:

The Universal Straw Lid, a silicon top with a straw, that stretches over any drinkware top and creates a spill-proof, bug-proof seal.

From everyday cups, glasses, travel mugs, tumblers and wine glasses to brandy snifters and mason jars, we finally have a solution to:

  • Al fresco dining (we hate bugs swarming our food and drink).
  • Having a drink on the sofa, in bed, at the pool or in a car (we’re a champion spiller).
  •  
    One size fits all; the silicone top, made from 100% European-grade silicone, creates a virtually spill resistant seal.

    The tops are easy to wash, go into the dishwasher, and can boiled if you want to sterilize them.

    And it’s easily portable: Both the top and the straw fold up into the travel case (as small as an Altoids box—photo #2).

    Environmentally friendly, the lids are available in two colors, Cobalt and Mint, for $ 6.50.
