'Tweak' is an interesting little sink strainer that doesn't only strain your waste but also helps make the disgusting act of grabbing food scraps from the sink less painful. This simple rubber contraption is bidding to solve a problem that many products have unsuccessfully tried to address -- how to discard food scraps that have gathered in the sink without getting grossed out.

The nifty sink strainer, when pinched, grabs all the food scraps that gather on it while it's placed in the sink. You can then simply lift the Tweak out of the sink and get rid of the scraps in the garbage. The product, which can also be used with bathtubs, comes in two sizes and several bright color options.

It was designed by Nitzfan Shafat and Aviv Rozenfeld, graduates of the Shenkar College of Design and Engineering in Israel.
