Entreprenuer Ties Germs to Neckwear
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
It's not clear exactly what April Strider thinks people have been doing with their neckties, but she wants them to stop spreading disease. Her company sells Safety Ties. The Web site shows a red power tie with diagonal stripes. It's got an anti-microbial coating. Doctors, restaurant workers or cruise ship employees can ward off germs. Everybody else be warned: Don't stick that tie in your mouth, you don't know where that tie has been.
