Floor Mask

Eliminate mopping for good.

No more scrubbing those floors with a clumsy and cumbersome mop. No more expensive floor cleaning devices. Give that mop one last wring, scrub your floor, and let your floor dry thoroughly. Then apply the Floor Mask liquid to your floor by spreading it with a squeedgee (much easier than scrubbing with a mop). Moving funiture is optional. Allow Floor Mask to dry. Floor mask is a plastic-like polymer that gives the floor an attractive shine and traction [when it's dry]. Now the next time that floor is looking nasty, just peel up Floor Mask and discard. Voila! Clean floor. Keep it forever clean by reapplying. Works with any floor type from hard woods to linoleum.

       This may not be limited to floors. I also wanna do the countertops, toilet bowl, tile, windows, dishes, pool, aquarium, house siding, and inside the microwave oven.

       A quick setting liquid plastic polymer, to cover a large floor area. Methinks this shall be expensive. I'd rather invest in the mop and water myself.

       Quick-peel masks tend to remain somewhat tacky, so they will get dirty much faster than a regular floor coating. Pulling the mask up will itself be a chore, and a harder one than mopping the floor. Will you then mop the mask in between applications?   

       I used to know a girl whose mother laid thick plastic sheeting over the entire living room carpet (as well as the sofa and settees). Now you can get thinner stuff on a roll, which must have made life a whole lot easier for the clean freaks.
