I came across this interesting Dragons Den style innovative device that makes window cleaning easy. Its secret lies in its chambered design. Just fill one side of the unit with clean water, via its internal flexible hose, and pump the desired amount into the cleaning holster. Now you get a precise spray of water onto your cleaning brush without any spillage and your clean and dirty water never mix. When youre done,just hit the built-in flushing mechanism. From a small home to a massive skyscraper, The new Eco Window Cleaning Unit reduces water, waste and saves valuable time as well as being a safer option for working at height.
Watch an early prototype being tested on the London Shard and inadvertently interrupting a news conference when Architect Renzo Piano was speaking to journalists.
