CHAMPAIGN -- An area man hopes his invention makes it onto store shelves soon, but he needs your help. Eric Simmons made the X-Drip Pan.

It's supposed to keep your kitchen more sanitary by catching drips and spills from getting into your refrigerator drawers. It can also help thaw meats and hold vegetables.

The product is part of Walmart's "Get on the Shelf" contest. It needs your vote to win.
