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.
