Handheld Pressure Washer

Use high-pressure water to clean tile grout.

Pressure washers have been used for years to clean cars, concrete, and buildings. Why not make a small one, with a water feed from the sink faucet, a small electric pump, and a tiny nozzle to concentrate the spray. Probably about the size of a Dremel tool, and darned useful to boot.

Of sorts. I suppose you could probably clean your grout with it. [waugsqueke, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]

       A croissant and butter to you, good sir. I'd like if the hose was retractable for use with cleaning toothbrushes, too.

       I've used a waterpik before...not nearly high pressure enough to clean tough grout, though. (Was restoring an old kitchen.)   

       The steam buggy would work, but the ones I've seen didn't use a high-pressure water stream. Plus the increased probability of burns.

       The moter will not be neccecary - have a piston moved by the faucet water directly move a smaller piston in a high-pressure pump - volume might be a bit low though...

       [+] Considering the small size, would it be cordless?
