How a Bar Owner Changed the Cleaning Game
The Steam Cleaner was invented in the early 1970′s in Italy when a bar owner noticed his wife cleaning the lipstick off wine glasses with steam from the cappuccino machine! (Any restaurant owner will tell you that lipstick stains are a pain!)
As he watched a bright red smudge literally melt away in seconds, he said “WOW! That was amazingly effective. How can I harness that same steam power to clean the the rest of this place? I’ve got to get that thing out of the wall and down here on the floor, the tables, the chairs, the counters.”
He went to work engineering a portable appliance that could be easily applied to any kind of cleaning. He took a 2 quart stainless steel water tank—hooked up some electricity to heat the water—added a pressure valve to force the resulting vapor through a hose—connected a handle that would allow several types of attachments and, voila!
The power of steam at your fingertips! Pretty simple, pretty basic, pretty REVOLUTIONARY!
He discovered that all kinds of “painful stains” like grease, tar, wax, soap scum, sugar, and cigarette smoke were no match for steam vapor delivered at 290 degrees with 50 pounds of pressure behind it.
Now he could clean the floors, walls, windows, stove, sink, bathroom fixtures, counters, chairs, baseboards, tables, chairs, the whole place, and all that was left behind was clean, shiny, sparkling, dirt free, chemical free, sanitized surfaces with NO streaks and NO residue to attract more dirt!
He quickly discovered that steam took the place of all those harsh toxic cleaning chemicals and actually did a better job.
He tweaked and adjusted until efficiency and user friendliness was perfected. He even added an iron attachment so he could take advantage of all that continuous steam while pressing the table linens. Isn’t technology great?
