The Unassuming Greatness of the Squeegee

When one sits back and reflects on all the great inventions, advancements, and discoveries made by mankind during the 20th century, a great number of things that changed the lives of billions springs to mind: television, the computer, penicillin, the airplane, the list is seemingly endless! However, there exists something created in 1936 that, to anyone who has ever hired a professional cleaning company, will be very familiar with... The squeegee.

It was in that year that an Italian immigrant by the name of Ettore Steccone perfected the design of early squeegee designs by making his out of lightweight brass with a single rubber blade secured by quick-release clips. Though not as technologically sophisticated as the Apollo lunar lander, Steccone’s improvements over earlier, more cumbersome designs were a blessing to window washers of the day who could now swap rubber blades faster & easier than before, making them more efficient in the process. His design is now the standard by which all others are based, how many people can make that claim?
