    Thomas W. Stewart - Inventor of the Clamping Mop

    Thomas W. Stewart decided that people shouldn't have to touch a dirty mop head so he added a clamp that is used to wring out the mop for us. He also made the mop head removeable so it can be washed or thrown away and replaced with a new one. Thanks Mr. Stewart!
