From candy to plungers...

“Get the plunger!” That’s something no home or business owner wants to hear, but did you know that simple tool was invented right here in the U.S.A? A confectioner in New York name John Hawley is often credited as the inventor. He filed patent in 1874 for“vent-clearers for wash bowls.” Then made an improvement two years later by adding “a bead or thickened rim formed around theedge of the cup of the vent-cleaner.” Who knew such a small device could have such a big impact on our “impacted” systems?!
