Eddie McKenzie said his two daughters inspired him two years ago to come up with the idea of creating a sports duffle bag with a fan built into it.
"My daughters play a lot of sports, and they don't wear socks with their shoes," he said. "Their feet would smell bad, their shoes would smell bad, and their sports bags would smell, too."
Tired of dealing with smelly clothes and eventually a smelly closet that stored their sports bags, McKenzie did something about it. He noticed how his wife would turn on the fan after she did the laundry to dry out the clothes. So he created a duffle bag with a built-in cigarette lighter plug.
"Plug it in to your car when travelling and it gets to work," he said. On the end of the bag, he said users can put a scented sachet and the fan will spread the scent throughout the bag.
