My Story

The vision for the product started after an injury I received from a whistle during a game early in my officiating career. I was officiating a game and decided to bite down on my whistle to keep from blowing it. At the time, I did not know that my whistle had a small crack in the mouthpiece which was caused from using hot water to sanitize it. The bite opened the crack and, once released, allowed the crack to close on my lip. Because of the intense pain, I removed the whistle and also a small part of my lip. The blood began to run and I had no way to stop the game. I discovered later at home that all my whistles were dry and brittle and would probably need replacing soon.

It took me a number of years to develop the product, but it started with an injury and by putting the idea to paper. In 2013, “The Clean As A Whistle” dream finally became a reality!
