Beer Pong Balls Are Disgusting, But Now You Can Clean Them

It has been well-documented how disgusting beer pong balls can get. But now, there is a new solution.

In one of the most college-friendly Kickstarters to date, Tyler Dobush has invented the "Clean Cup," the world's first portable and automatic beer pong ball washer.

Dobush's clever invention is also timely. Beer pong has come under a bit of fire recently after Clemson University researchers found the balls used may carry dangerous bacteria. But don't kid yourself, it's not like you actually thought a lukewarm cup of water did anything to clean the balls, right?

This isn't the first time someone has tried to tackle this problem. Not long ago, a group of students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology unveiled their luxurious beer pong table that actually included a ball washing system in the undercarriage of the table.
