Rodney Wilson thought there had to be a better way to finish grout — if you could eliminate the time wasted continually cleaning your sponge instead of wiping away the excess grout, you could get the job done faster and cheaper.  So he invented the Squeez-EZ electric sponge cleaner.

The patent-pending Squeez-EZ drops into any three or five-gallon bucket and automatically cleans and wrings the water out of grouting sponges.  If you’ve got two sponges you can always have a fresh sponge ready when you’ve dirtied the sponge you’re using.  Just put the dirty sponge in the Squeez-EZ, grab the clean sponge, and continue working.

The Squeez-EZ offers many advantages over cleaning sponges by hand:  Your hands are less fatigued, the sponges are cleaner, there’s no excess water to discolor the grout, and you reduce the haze left by the grout because you get more consistent cleaning.

For safety, the Squeez-EZ runs off a 12V DC motor.  A 6′ cord separates the 13A power supply from the Squeez-EZ, keeping the dangerous voltages away from the pail of water.

The Squeez-EZ will squeeze you for about $330 plus another $12 for shipping.  You’ll have to supply your own bucket and sponges.

    I’ll ask my tile sub what he thinks. But for the low volume guy you can throw a lot of sponges into a heap – and take a fresh one before you would vere pay for this.

  2. Kris says:

    How hard is it to rinse and squeeze a sponge? Is this worth $340+?

    Reminds me of a quote attributed to Nikita Khruschev after he toured an American kitchen: “is there a machine that puts food into the mouth and pushes it down?”

  3. ShopMonger says:

    330? yeah I think i can ring a few spongesout… actually for that price I could buy enough sponges I could use each side once,….. then just clean them all in a washer (local loundry mat suggested, other wise the wife may hurt you)

    I paid $400 for mine at a Seattle area retailer just over a year ago and it was worth every penny! It easily reduced my grouting time by two thirds. It is a real life saver when using epoxy or charcoal colored grout with slate. I would recommend this *except * my transformer failed just out of the warranty period 🙁

  5. Josh says:

    I would paid a $1,000 for one of these Sqeeze EZ’s. They save so much time and effort that any tile installer would be a fool to not have one. A lot of guys say that it’s too much money to spend for cleaning sponges, but what they don’t realize is that this doesn’t just clean the sponges, it also rings them out to the perfect moisture consistency so you don’t over water your grout during the cleaning phase. Overall, this is the best $300 tool money can buy! It pays for itself within the first job or two.

  7. Jen says:

  8. TERRY says:

    where can i buy one, anyone have a used sqeeze ez for sale ???

  9. Brian says:

    Tiletools.com has the Squeez-EZ now. From what I hear, the original inventors of the Squeez-EZ had some sort of fallout and stopped selling it. And it was unavailable for a couple years.

    It just became available again on tiletools.com about a few weeks ago.

    Best Machine i ever purchased, The transformer also failded just after purchased but i eliminated it and now have it hooked to a 12 volt Lawn Battery which makes it portable and convient. The only problem is after 3 years of heavy use the drive gears are starting to loose teeth and i am looking for new gears.
