The cloth will benefit a growing number of people refraining from dining out in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, preparing lunches themselves to consume at work and other places.
An immediate issue is that taking dirty lunch boxes home makes them harder to clean. They often need washing twice. In warmer seasons, odors and bacteria from food scraps are also concerns.
Toray accordingly developed the concept of pre-washing lunch boxes right after eating and applied it to Toraysee. That brand that debuted in 1987 to offer advanced cleaning performance for eyewear and now covers numerous popular products.
Use this small reusable cloth to pre-wash a lunch box while at work or out and about to so it is much easier to clean when getting home. Then wring the cloth to dry quickly. It is easy to store.
Toray seeks 25 people in Japan to serve as ambassadors for the Toraysee Temporary Bento Box Cleaning Cloth (see the following page for details).
